Judgement Day Review


IC Title: Very good opener, their styles differ greatly, but this was well-written. The ending was great, actually. It's just like Jeff to try the extra leap, and the knee counter keeps both strong, so good job. The segment afterwards with Haas and Albright leads me to think that the two will feud, or he'll get involved in the Haas/Jeff. I also liked that people pretended to care that Haas won.

6-Man Extreme Tag: Lots of people going through tables, always a nice spot. I'm not quite sure what a MasterSlam is, but sounds like a credible finisher, so good job with that false finish. Viscera wasn't expected, but takes the story in a new direction, so that'll be a good read. Whatever happened to Michelle, though? I was hoping she'd get put through a table or get a cane shot.

Finlay Segment: This is what Finlay should be like. Brutal and looking for a fight, not dancing with a "leprechaun" he sired. I wonder who'll be getting it.

Carlito/Show: Just seem like a glorified squash to make people remember that Show's not someone to mess with. I'd like to see Carlito try to Backstab Show, though. It'd be pretty funny.

Mexicools/Helms Segment: If this had been done in full, it would've been more entertaining, but this was good, too. It got the point across that Helms is totally focused on the CW Title.

Shawn Interview: As a first-time reader, I really liked this segment because it gave me the whole story in a nutshell. This feud with Edge & Co. sounds good, and even though I don't really like having Naitch as the partner, I think I can expect a great match to come.

CW Title: Great CW action, and I really liked that London didn't make a miraculous comeback, because that's what irks me about cruiserweights. They forget to sell their crashes and burns, and an interesting story going on here with Helms relapsing into The Hurricane. Best match yet.

Couples Segment: I liked this, but the end, not so much. You've got something going on here with Kenny, Kelly, and Ashley, which is good for some romance-related rumbles, but I didn't like how Kofi just kind of did nothing. And since he's Ashley's newest beau, I think he'd know the situation quite well. This does intruige me, though, as these two young guys with their chicks could really become a stong story.

ECW Title: A great story here, with Heyman deciding to take away RVD's advantage. I respect Regal as a highly talented man, but the guy just isn't entertaining to me at all, so I'm glad that RVD retains. I wasn't too thrilled with the finish and the moves leading up the FSFS, though. Heyman stealing the title, though, that's great heel heat for him, and should make for a great story.

E&C/JBL Segment: When JBL said that he brought Christian back for one reason (to get rid of HBK), I thought that would lead to signs of Christian turning, but you didn't play on that, so maybe not. This hyped the match well, and it gives me the impression that Flair's going to play a large role in the match.

MVP Interview: A great interview, plays into MVP's gimmick of being a big-time player, and comparing himself to big names. As much as I like Rey, I don't think that he really needs the MITB, but I just realized that this BTB goes back to 2005, so never mind. Good hype for the match.

MVP/Rey: I liked this match because it made MVP look like a big-deal, and I liked the surprise finish. It makes Rey look crafty and whatnot, but keeps MVP strong as well. I can see this feud keep going for awhile as well.

Shawn/Flair Segment: Shawn putting over Flair in such a big way is sure to not end well. It does make Flair look huge, and it only furthers my thoughts that he'll be critical in the match.

Henry/Kane: I didn't expect much from this match, but I didn't really like how it did turn out. It kind of seemed like a squash to me. I can see Henry challenging for the ECW Title now, which doesn't bode well for RVD.

Main Event: This main event certaintly delivered, and I was right in Flair playing a critical role, but not in the way I thought. It certainly puts a new twist in the story, and can keep it going for another while longer. They way thigns were being built up, it pointed to signs that the feud could end here, but I think it's good to add a new chapter here, so good job. Great match to end the show.

Overall: This is the first show of yours that I've read, and I really liked this. I may not be completely educated on all the happenings, but I got a good idea of all the main feuds by reading this PPV. I liked most of what happened here, a solid show all throughout, with only two matches not really doing much for me. 7.5/10.

Important Events Leading into Night of Champions - Monday Night Raw

The WWE title situation would take a turn for the most interesting ride that it’s been on all year and in recent years for sure. First off Randy Orton still had his WrestleMania rematch clause that he had yet to use due to “the time not being right” Orton teased the champ Jericho on many occasions saying that he was ready to strike but not ready to cash in the title shot just yet. However Orton decided the timing was going to be right at Night of Champions. Orton just had a feeling that this PPV would be his one night to shine and why? Well nobody really knew until Orton talked about how he is the biggest champion in the history of the WWE and that’s why they might as well rename the PPV Night of Orton! Regardless Orton had GM Eric Bischoff book the match for Night of Champions and the WrestleMania Rematch between Chris Jericho and Randy Orton was on….or was it?

There was already bad blood brewing on Raw between four other top superstars on the brand as it was. Ironically all four were involved in the Fatal 4 Way at Backlash which Batista won to earn the title shot against Jericho later that same night. However going into Backlash John Cena and Mr. Kennedy had their problems as well as Triple H and Batista. Kennedy claimed that since he was drafted to Raw that he now was the top dog around here not Cena. Kennedy and Cena both exchanged words week in and week out dissing one another before they made a challenge that they should be the number one contender’s and NOT….Randy Orton. However on the same side Triple H and Batista had been having their issues and well…quite frankly they both felt at the same time that they were the top dogs as well as they had arguments over who was the leader of Evolution and all that good stuff. Eventually one night all four men ended up in the ring bickering before Bischoff came in and decided that since the next PPV was Night of Champions…he couldn’t just leave these men off the show. That’s why he’s consulted with Randy Orton and Chris Jericho and decided that he will add all four of these men into the match and now at Night of Champions we’ll have the first ever Championship Scramble between FIVE of these superstars. Everyone looked around realizing there was six and that’s when Bischoff dropped the bomb shell that Jericho was going to defend his title against Orton the very next week on Raw in a Steel Cage Match where the winner then moves on to Night of Champions!

Jericho and Orton were shocked but apparently Orton had this planned where he would throw off Jericho and get even further into the mind of Jericho. So the Steel Cage Match took place the very next week…only a few weeks before Night of Champions and it was Jericho that retained the title after injuring Orton by throwing him repeatedly into the Steel Cage. Jericho forced Orton to tap out to the Walls of Jericho in the middle of the ring retaining his title. Later that night GM Eric Bischoff announced that Randy Orton is injured and will be out for a few months. The stage was now set for the first ever Championship Scramble Match where five men would battle it out in 20 minutes to see who the top superstar was. There would be numerous pinfalls but whoever had the title at the 20 minute mark would be declared the champion!

As far as the United States title situation goes, Matt Hardy found himself in just as big of a predicament as Jericho did. Well maybe not as big but still his opponent was not necessarily the smallest man on Raw. Hardy got a big win over Paul Burchill at Backlash before he then wrestled Rene Dupree on Raw. Hardy got the easy win over Dupree before suddenly Rodney Mack attacked him from behind before hitting the Black Out on Hardy. Theodore Long came out holding a microphone in his hand and stating that the “Bayou Beast” was hungry for gold and that Rodney Mack gets what he wants. Mack tormented Hardy for weeks attacking him backstage and having Long yell threats at Hardy. Hardy knew that he would have his back against the wall very soon and he laid down the challenge since he was sick and tired of all the crap that Mack and Long had been doing to him. The Bayou Beast of course accepted and now it was on…Matt Hardy vs. Rodney Mack for the United States title at Night of Champions!

But it wasn’t the only role that Theodore Long would be playing at Night of Champions. No. Remember Long recruited the Gold Standards to be in the rebirth of his newly named corporation “Pimpin’ and Stuntin’ Enterprises” Long knew that Burke and Benjamin had a bright future and it showed so far with their five month stranglehold on the World Tag Team titles. But one team certainly had the biggest chance to shut them down out of them all…the new pairing of CM Punk and Brian Kendrick. Both men were drafted over from Smackdown in the Draft but immediately took problems with the Gold Standards. It went even as far as Burke and Benjamin saying that it’s not fair they’ve got to defend their titles against all white boys…(remember The Gold Standards are doing a “It’s because we’re black…” angle right now) Punk and Kendrick knew they had the talent to dethrone The Gold Standards but it was the problem of trying to get past Long himself to get to his cronies. Punk and Kendrick challenged Long’s boys to a Backlash rematch in another non-title match and graciously Punk and Kendrick won albeit having to quickly roll up Benjamin for the victory. Burke and Benjamin went as far as to threaten to call the Reverend (Jesse Jackson) and get him to come and see the support these two gain from the fans only because they’re white. Regardless Punk and Kendrick earned their title match at Night of Champions.

Finally in the Women’s division. Beth Phoenix had won the Women’s Championship back at WrestleMania but recently she had become real good friends with Mickie James. Both were hanging out a lot not only on screen but also off screen. Phoenix and Mickie went as far as to declare themselves “Best friends” and their chemistry couldn’t help but be matched whenever they hooked up together in tag team action. But what happened next nobody could have expected. Beth heard rumors that Mickie was only “using” her just so she could get to the title. Victoria and Jillian told Beth these rumors which Beth seemed to dismiss but it turned out she didn’t a week later. In a tag team match where Beth teamed with Mickie against Jillian and Victoria, Beth purposely tagged in Mickie knowing that Victoria was going to quickly run behind Mickie and roll her up. Victoria and Jillian got the win causing Mickie and Beth to argue briefly. However what happened next was the turn for the worse whenever Beth simply clotheslined Mickie down onto the mat. A betrayal like no other was seen after Beth embarrassed and destroyed Mickie in the ring yelling “Are you my friend now” repeatedly. The match would be set for Night of Champions and now one of the most personal Women’s Championship Matches in recent history is on.


In other news concerning Raw...

The search for the mysterious man that had attacked numerous superstars backstage was finally ended when Chavo Guerrero admitted that he knew who it was. Chavo introduced Bam Neely to the fans stating that since he’s at a new unfamiliar place he needs a bodyguard. Chavo said that he found Bam and knew he would be the perfect person to help Guerrero rise to the top and show just why the name Guerrero means Warrior!

The Undertaker hasn’t been heard of since Backlash. Rumor has it that one superstar knows where he is at but for the wrong reason.

Santino Marella has continued his dominance of Raw in comedy entertaining the masses and in the meanwhile getting over with the fans. Santino has been playing a tweener role as of recent but it seems in the long run WWE seems him as more of a heel.


Important Events Leading to Night of Champions – Friday Night Smackdown

Certainly the fans had their minds stuck on one big thing on Smackdown and that was who was going to be the next challenger to Edge’s World Heavyweight Championship. Edge, his brother Christian, and Smackdown GM JBL were already on a Power Trip and now it seemed like it couldn’t be stopped at all? Or could it? Enter Mr. McMahon to make things worse for the Power Trip trio. Mr. McMahon showed up on Friday Night Smackdown one week saying that he realized we had a potential situation where it could be very confusing as to whom could be the next number one contender. First off Shawn Michaels certainly does deserve another chance but JBL clearly disagreed with that. JBL tried to rally against Mr. McMahon in this decision but it seemed to go even more against what Mr. McMahon had planned. McMahon said that the fans deserve to see something special and that is what they are going to get! Mr. McMahon has a feeling that JBL wants to help Edge try and slither out of another title match. Mr. McMahon then announces that we will have a match tonight to determine who will face Edge at Night of Champions. It’ll be Shawn Michaels vs. Ric Flair. Finally McMahon announces that JBL and Christian will be BANNED from ringside at Night of Champions and if they interfere…their contracts are NULL And VOID!

The match between HBK and Flair really comes off well as the fans really get into it and the ending occurs whenever HBK tunes up the band for Sweet Chin Music. HBK charges at Flair but Flair falls down onto the mat face first before HBK can kick him. The referee comes over checking on Flair as HBK looks legitimately concerned for his old friend Ric Flair. Flair quickly shows why he is the dirtiest in the game though tripping HBK up and locking in the Figure Four Leg Lock! The fans root on Flair as HBK tries his best but is forced to tap out! Flair is going onto Night of Champions as the referee raises his hand, HBK looks up at him mouthing “Why” as Flair reminds him just what HBK did to him at Judgment Day. Flair leaves the ring to a loud applause from the fans as HBK is grabbing his leg wondering just why Flair cheated to win tonight. Was it because of HBK forcing Edge into Flair for the Spear at Judgment Day? Was it the desire in Flair to win? Only Flair knows…

Moving onto the Intercontinental title situation, Charlie Haas had a few “tests” that he needed to give Brent Albright. First off Haas needed to see that Albright could “put on a clinic” as Haas claimed he does that every night he steps into the ring. Haas watched on from ringside as Albright did indeed entertain the fans with a great win over Kid Kash in a hard fought victory. The second test was to see if Albright had a “deadly submission” and thus he had JBL thrown into a match with Chris Masters paying a visit from Smackdown. Albright overcame this challenge forcing Masters to tap out to the Crowbar. The final challenge from Haas to Albright was that he had to prove he was a “Suplex Specialist” just like Haas was. Albright then ended up proving this in his final match which he got to take on Deuce and hit numerous suplexes even finishing off with a Bridged German to get the win. Finally Haas decided that Albright was “ready for the test” and that he had to overcome this final opponent to earn his title shot…HAAS! Haas slid in running at Albright but quickly Albright caught Haas off guard hitting a quick German before keeping the bridge and getting the win! So it’s set “The Shooter” Brent Albright is set to take on “The Suplex Specialist” Charlie Haas in what is guaranteed to be one hell of a wrestling clinic.

The Cruiserweight title scene has recently seen the former champion Paul London trying to rally his way back up in the rankings. JBL gave London a challenge that he had to prove that he was the best and that he couldn’t just let Helms claim he was the “Savior” of the division. After all London had done so much for the division. These comments seemed to get into the head of London as it made him more intense and aggressive in the ring during his matches. London still had the support of the fans but it seemed now he was earning even more respect. Meanwhile Gregory Helms was still having flashbacks of his time as the Hurricane ever since it first started at WrestleMania. Helms seems to want to relive his famous gimmick but his alter ego Gregory Helms won’t let him do so. So now with Helms confused and London on fire, London has decided to cash in his rematch clause and will get his shot at Night of Champions.

Finally the WWE Tag Team titles have been sitting rather “quietly” recently as the Mexicools have had a good run with the titles but it’s looking like that may all change come Night of Champions. One of the newer teams to form recently, Fashion Inc. (consisting of Danny Doring and Sylvan) have formed together an alliance not only because of their “dashing” looks but also because of their “deadly” wrestling skills. They quickly earned themselves number one contender status winning a match over Jesse and Festus to earn the spot and get the match against two of WWE’s highest flyers in Super Crazy and Psicosis!


Other important Smackdown notes…

Umaga still is out trying to recover from his injury that he first suffered in one of the first Smackdown house shows that he ran when he was drafted. There is no set date but he looks to be coming back A.S.A.P for sure.

Carlito has been sitting on the backburner recently along with a few other superstars. There is a possibility though he could get a push in the future but as for right now it just doesn’t seem like there are too many things for him to do on the blue brand.

Rey Mysterio and MVP have continued their feud with MVP not giving up until he finally gains what he claims is “rightfully” his. That is…the Money in the Bank Briefcase. It looks like this feud could be heating up right after Night of Champions.

Kurt Angle continues to rehabilitate daily and isn’t looked to be coming back very soon. There is no return date but don’t expect him to be back early.


Important Events Leading into Night of Champions – ECW on Sci-Fi

Paul Heyman made a statement at Judgment Day that truly showed he was not kidding when he said that he was going to make sure RVD didn’t walk out of Night of Champions as the ECW champion. His retaliation against RVD? To throw the champion into a big match (literally!) at Night of Champions. Heyman has announced there will be an Extreme Gauntlet at Night of Champions and that he will handpick who will be in this match. Heyman ended up selecting Big Daddy V, Chris Masters, Jamie Noble, Kane, Kenny Dykstra, Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, Test, and William Regal to all compete in the Gauntlet. Heyman said in no way was he going to throw in an ECW Original to give RVD any chance to walk out with the title. Ten men in one gauntlet match where Heyman has already stated that RVD must go first. So the question remains to see if RVD will indeed be able to overcome the monstrous odds that Heyman has thrown at him?

Other news and notes…

Kenny Dykstra and his girlfriend Kelly Kelly have recently continued their rivalry with Kenny’s ex Ashley Massaro and newcomer to ECW Kofi Kingston. Dykstra has pretty much told Kingston to mind his business but the Jamaican doesn’t want to just give in like that. So what will happen next in this Love Triangle as Kofi has somehow inserted himself despite not knowing what fully is occurring?

The Big Daddy V character has taken off rather well under the guidance of Matt Striker as their faction has grown even more. The group currently consists of BDV, Test, Striker, and Michelle McCool. Big Daddy V surely seems a force to be messed with come Night of Champions in the Extreme Gauntlet Match.

The ECW Originals have vocally expressed themselves concerning the Extreme Gauntlet Match. They’ve clearly asked why they weren’t included and why the odds were thrown against RVD. Many tried to reach contact with the GM Paul Heyman but Heyman never answered his phone calls or his office door for that matter. Clearly the sadistic Heyman is serious about these matters…

II. Night of Champions 3 Count

1. Can Chris Jericho overcome the odds in the first ever Championship Scramble Match?

The odds certainly are stacked against the fan favorite Jericho but he's made a career in proving people wrong. Jericho has to face four of the toughest superstars in the industry in Triple H, Batista, Mr. Kennedy, and John Cena but must hope that their personal differences will collide to further distract them and give Jericho a chance to retain.

2. Will the Nature Boy win his 17th World title?

For the first time in a few years, Ric Flair will have a chance on PPV to win the World Heavyweight Championship. The 30 plus year veteran has done more than enough in this industry but tonight could very well be the beginning of another World title reign for him. With Edge not having the help of his brother Christian or JBL thanks to Mr. McMahon, all fingers seem to be pointing towards The Nature Boy for the victory.

3. Can ECW GM Paul Heyman finally take the title away from Rob Van Dam?

It's been Heyman's goal ever since RVD actually won the title back at WrestleMania to rid him of it. He's tried sending some of ECW's biggest names out there but he might have just came up with the most epic plan ever. Throw 9 of ECW's bright and young superstars into the ring with NO ECW Originals allowed and now RVD has his back to the wall. Can RVD retain the gold or will Heyman be the one to get the last laugh he claimed he would get back at Judgment Day.

*****

III. Backstage News from Night of Champions

There is no certain opener set yet for Night of Champions but WWE has a general idea of what they are looking for to kick off. It seems right now that a match from Smackdown will most likely kick off but which one has yet to be decided.

Plans are being thrown around for the first ever Championship Scramble match which the fans really seem to be enjoying the concept of it. It's something new and fresh that the WWE feels would be a great possible tradition for Night of Champions starting next year. It would be billed as showing that the top champion must overcome the odds to see who really is the top champion.

The Extreme Gauntlet had been planned for a while but it wasn't known if it was going to be a Gauntlet or just a Battle Royal. The ECW writers decided to just go ahead and have it be a Gauntlet as they feel it'll add more to the story between Heyman and RVD.

There had been talks of having a possible Championship Scramble for the World Heavyweight title but WWE would rather have one to see how that goes before having two or possibly three if ECW would have had one. As mentioned before though this could be a possibility for next year's show.

The first ever Night of Champions certainly seems like it's going to be a great show. WWE wanted to add another "special" PPV to the year and felt that this would be better than just having another "bland" PPV like Vengeance. This is to try and increase buys during the Summer while most families are away on vacation.

The WWE NTI (New Talent Initiative) has been working rather well recently and brought many new names to the company such as The Great Khali, Santino Marella, Brent Albright, Kofi Kingston, Michelle McCool, and more. It seems however though that there could be even more names coming up soon.

The feeling backstage is that WWE hates not being able to have that many big names on the show tonight but still has plans for all of the stars. Many superstars such as Jeff Hardy, MVP, Rey Mysterio, The Big Show, and more are missing because they are not involved in title situations. But it's just the way the cards fell and nobody is angry about this situation in the locker room.

WWE Night of Champions
Sunday June 24, 2007
Toyota Center – Houston, Texas
Official Theme Song – “Gone” – Fuel

A video package plays hyping the first ever Night of Champions in WWE history. WWE has never had all nine titles on the line in one night and the video focuses on the best of the best….those being the champions. All nine champions talk about how it’s felt to finally climb to the top and hoist the title in their hands. The video continues on talking about being the top champion in the history of their individual belts before all of the challengers come on. Each challenger talks about how it’s felt for themselves to have a title or for the ones that have never had a title how it feels for them to be able to finally conquer their dreams tonight. Either way…tonight at Night of Champions…Where every title is on the line…the true champions will rise to the top!

“Gone” by Fuel suddenly blasts across the arena as the pyro sets off on the stage. The set looks just like the Night of Champions 2008 stage with the big beam poles having each championship hanging from the top of the poles. It’s a very nice set up stage as we scan across the arena before we cut down to the commentating teams at ringside. The Raw team runs down their four matches mainly hyping the 1st ever Championship Scramble reminding the fans of how it works before Smackdown hypes “The Nature Boy’s” first World title match in nearly three years! Finally ECW hypes their lone match – that being the Extreme Gauntlet for the ECW title as we now are set to kick the night off in style with Smackdown.

Match #1 -WWE Tag Team Championships
The Mexicools (c’s) vs. Fashion Inc.

The first match pits the tag team champions, the Mexicools, taking on Fashion Inc. The fans get into the match as Super Crazy and Psicosis high flying ability keeps them entertained while the newly joined duo of Doring and Sylvan try their best to prove why they can be a top contending team in the near future. Sylvan went to drop Super Crazy with a DDT but Super Crazy countered hitting a kick the stomach before quickly leaping onto the shoulders of Sylvan rolling through and hitting a Hurricanrana! The Hurricanrana force sends Sylvan flying into Doring as now Doring is the legal man. Super Crazy was not aware of this and he quickly gets clothes lined down onto the mat in the back of the head. The fans look on in shock as Doring and Sylvan might be so close to winning their first titles. Quickly Doring picks Super Crazy up trying for the Wham, Bam, Thank you Ma’am! But before he can do so he gets dropped by a enziguiri to the back of the head. Quickly Super Crazy tags Psicosis in who hits a Diving Leg Drop off the top to get the victory for his team kicking off Night of Champions in style.

Winners – Still WWE Tag Team Champions - The Mexicools


Michael Cole and Josh Matthews hype the rest of the matches here tonight for Smackdown before talking about the big win the Mexicools just pulled off. Shortly after we head backstage as Maryse is standing by with the WWE Champion Chris Jericho. Maryse asks Jericho a few questions concerning the Championship Scramble match to which Jericho states he is fully ready for tonight. He’s never had a bigger challenge than what he is going into tonight but he knows that he must be set on his goal and that is retaining his gold tonight. Jericho says he’s waited too long for this dream to be wasted just like it was five years ago when he lost both of his titles at the same time. Jericho says that with Triple H and Batista plus Mr. Kennedy and John Cena being too pre-occupied with one another, he’s almost positive he can pull this one out tonight.

Match #2 – United States Championship
Matt Hardy (c) vs. Rodney Mack

This match really doesn’t go too long as it’s really not going to have too much action tonight. Theodore Long is trying his best to do everything in his power to try and help his man win the gold tonight. Long almost comes so close to helping Mack earn his first major title in the WWE but it was Hardy who knocked Long off the apron sending him down on the outside. This seems to infuriate the Bayou Beast though as he suddenly snaps and takes Hardy down with a clothesline. Mack quickly throws Hardy onto his shoulders grabbing him before dropping him down in the corner face first with a snake eyes move. Mack quickly runs off the ropes dropping Hardy with another clothesline now as the end could very well be near for Hardy. Mack picks Hardy up looking for the Blackout but suddenly Hardy slides off the shoulders with a roll up. Hardy only gets a two count as this infuriates Mack even more. Long gets back onto the apron one more time without the referee seeing him as Mack shoves Hardy into Long. Mack checks on his manager as Hardy spins Mack around trying for a Twist of Fate but Mack quickly kicks him in the gut. Mack tries picking up Hardy one more time but Hardy slides off of the shoulders getting another roll up and this time for the win.

Winner – Still United States Champion – Matt Hardy


JR and King hype Hardy barely escaping this test by the “skin of his teeth” tonight as the Bayou Beast really did put on a great showing here tonight. Mack helps Long back onto his feet as Long has another match to manage tonight.

A video hyping the 4th annual Great American Bash plays before showing that this year; the superstars of Raw invade the Bash. For the first time ever The Great American Bash will be a raw exclusive Pay-Per-View and will come live to you on Sunday July 22, 2007 from San Jose, California!

Backstage JBL and Eric Bischoff are both having a “friendly” conversation talking about the start of the night so far. JBL talks to Bischoff about his problems recently with Flair and HBK and Bischoff consoles him saying he completely understands those two troublemakers. After all Bischoff had trouble with both of them back in the day (more or so HBK) but Bischoff says that JBL has the tools necessary to stop them. JBL then says that tonight he really is disgruntled that he is banned from ringside and so is Christian as Bischoff tells him that he is positive that Edge will come out on top tonight.

A video package plays showing the story between ECW Champion Rob Van Dam and ECW GM Paul Heyman. The video highlights their differences they’ve shared in the past years from their real good relationship to the “strained” one they have now. Heyman making his claim to take RVD out of the equation echoes throughout the ending of the VP which shows a lot of old clips from RVD back in the old ECW. The video ends with the daunting words…”It’s time for you to go…Van Dam” as we now head into the arena.

Match #3 – ECW Championship – Extreme Gauntlet Match
Rob Van Dam (c) vs. Big Daddy V vs. Chris Masters vs. Jamie Noble vs. Kane
Vs. Kenny Dykstra vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Mark Henry vs. Test vs. William Regal

The match first kicks off tonight with Heyman once again reminding Van Dam that he MUST start off the match first tonight. Heyman then handpicks the first opponent who turns out to be “The Masterpiece” Chris Masters. Heyman says that he originally didn’t want to use weapons in this match but feels they will make RVD wear out even easier tonight. Masters and RVD wrestle for about three or four minutes before Van Dam caught Masters off guard with a big chair shot to the head and then connecting with a Leg Drop onto the body of Masters. RVD got the quick cover as Masters is eliminated rather quickly.

Eliminated: Chris Masters

Masters makes his exit as RVD turns his attention to the top of the ramp as now down comes William Regal, his Judgment Day opponent! Regal rubs his fist as he slides into the ring but quickly gets tripped up face first into the mat! RVD drops a knee on the throat of Regal trying to quickly take Regal out of the equation. RVD and Regal wrestle around for a bit longer as Regal misses a running knee strike to which RVD drops him with a quick roundhouse kick for the second elimination taking Regal out of the game.

Eliminated: William Regal

Test comes in next as Matt Striker accompanies him down to the ring. Striker yells at Test with commands as Test does the best job so far of taking RVD out. This seems to be the phase where Test is going to try and wear down RVD the most for the match. Test grabs a chair sticking it around the throat of RVD looking ready to jump off the top rope but RVD maneuvers out of the chair before throwing it at Test’s head! The big monster falls down onto the mat as RVD quickly pulls a table out from underneath the ring. Test watches as RVD doesn’t get to fully use the table because Test pulls RVD up bringing him back into the ring. Test grabs RVD looking for a Pumphandle Slam but the lucky Van Dam slides off the shoulders of Test before dropping him with a DDT! RVD heads to the top for the first time tonight as he’s set for the Five Star Frog Splash! He leaps off hitting his finishing move and covering for another elimination.

Eliminated: Test

RVD hit perhaps one of the biggest moves of the match as he’s now down and out to which Kofi Kingston comes out right now. Kofi tries to take advantage but suddenly Kenny Dykstra comes running out to ringside. Kofi and Kenny get into it brawling as the referee counts Kofi out and Kenny seems too distracted with Kofi as security has to break them apart. Heyman is so pissed he gets on the mic and yells to the back for someone else to come out since Kofi and Kenny obviously were too preoccupied with one another.

Eliminated: Kofi Kingston and Kenny Dykstra are “ruled out” of the match by Heyman due to fighting.

And with those two gone comes half of the gauntlet already completed. So now out comes Big Daddy V. BDV does his best to wear down RVD for a few moments before RVD was able to slip free of BDV’s grasp and start trying to chop down the monster. RVD eventually got to the outside setting the table up but that’s all he got because BDV pulled him back into the ring. Big Daddy V slowly gets himself back up trying to get back in the ring but an angry Test who remained at ringside with Striker gets into the ring charging at RVD for the Big Boot but misses and kicks Big Daddy V right in the face. The mammoth of a man tries to hang onto his balance but falls backwards and crashes through the table. RVD clotheslines Test out of the ring before covering BDV on the outside to eliminate another opponent.

Eliminated: Big Daddy V

Jamie Noble is next out as he gets into the ring with RVD who quickly caught Noble off guard rolling him up. The former Cruiserweight Champion Noble slaps the mat in anger as he fell just another victim to RVD’s impressive match here tonight.

Eliminated: Jamie Noble

Kane is out next as it’s the battle of the two former friends and tag team partners. Suddenly Mark Henry attacks Kane on his way out as now Henry drags Kane throwing him into the ring. Heyman is about to go crazy as he’s feeling déjŕ vu all over again just like Kofi and Kenny earlier when they couldn’t stop fighting. Heyman is tempted to call the match off but waits to see what occurs in the match. Henry caught Kane off guard hitting a World’s Strongest Slam before RVD (who was supposed to be facing Kane) quickly kicks Henry into the corner and covers Kane getting the win.

Eliminated: Kane

So now it’s just Henry and RVD as the ECW faithful are all shown backstage cheering on Van Dam as he’s in phase nine of this massive gauntlet. RVD uses a chair to try and chop down this massive of a man before getting a steel rod. RVD takes Henry off his knees trying to do everything he can to take down the World’s Strongest Man before he finally does get Henry on one knee. RVD quickly dropkicks Henry in the face as now Henry is down. RVD heads to the top rope trying for the Five Star Frog Splash but Henry looks like he’s about to get up. But wait! RVD flies off quick enough hitting the Five Star Frog Splash for the second time in the match to get the win and retain the title!

Eliminated: Mark Henry

Winner – Still ECW Champion – Rob Van Dam


Tony Chimel goes to award the title to RVD as he announces that he is the champion before Paul Heyman comes into the ring pulling the title out of the hands of RVD! The fans boo as Heyman says “I said you had to beat all of the competitors.” Of course RVD looks on confused as this was a 10 man gauntlet but apparently it wasn’t because….

Dan.gar hits across the arena as the massive figure of the Great Khali appears on the stage! Khali walks down the ramp as RVD can barely stand up after this hellacious match he just fought through. Now he’s got the face Khali? Khali gets into the ring with Ranjin Singh yelling orders at him before Khali quickly watches RVD charge at him. Khali hits RVD with a head butt before picking Van Dam up and hitting the Khali Choke Bomb! Khali covers and gets the win as Heyman awards the title to the new champion!

Winner – New ECW Champion – The Great Khali


Joey Styles and Tazz call bullshit on this as Heyman finally has ridded RVD of the title. But Heyman doesn’t stop there. Heyman pulls out a clipboard that he brought to ringside with him before he shows it to the camera. Heyman reveals that it’s RVD’s contract and he rips it up into shreds right into RVD’s face. RVD is down on the mat and out of it, unaware of this as Heyman yells loudly into the camera “You’re fired” as Joey Styles and Tazz talk about just how much the course of ECW is set to change in the next few days now that there is a new champion and an Original gone.

(Booker’s note: I realize that it seems like RVD just rolled right through everybody but I felt it was necessary for the story that was being told. The fact he fought nine men (well almost) and overcame every single one of them before being destroyed had been planned for months. This was a long term plan and I think came through well. So nobody really did get “squashed” too bad and everybody that was being pushed on ECW will resume pushes.)

We now head backstage as MVP is backstage standing in front of the interview area by himself. MVP says that it’s a damn shame that he is not being utilized here tonight at Night of Champions. He goes on to compare himself to great dynasties in the sports organizations such as the Boston Celtics, New York Yankees, Detroit Red Wings, and the Green Bay Packers. MVP said that his archrival Rey Mysterio is more like the Chicago Cubs though. They come through most of the time, have a famous history, but in the end just can’t get the main goal accomplished. That is winning the top championship. MVP says that once again he is going to right a wrong whenever he wins the MITB briefcase from Rey Mysterio very soon.

Match #4 – Women’s Championship
Beth Phoenix (c) vs. Mickie James

The match really doesn’t showcase these two divas’s potentials as really it seems evident they are set into a long term future feud. James and Phoenix put on a good match but it was Phoenix that ended the match after knocking her former “friend” Mickie down onto the mat with a vicious clothesline. Quickly Beth picked Mickie up trying for the Glam Slam but Mickie rolled through before trying for a Mick Kick! Amazingly the Women’s champion Beth Phoenix catches Mickie’s foot pulling her in before wrapping Mickie up and hitting the Glam Slam as she covers “proving a point” to Mickie here tonight in the ring.

Winner – Still Women’s Champion – Beth Phoenix


Beth is handed her title as she holds the title high in the air. Mickie mouths “It’s not over yet” as it does seem that these two divas are just beginning what is looking like one of the more personal diva rivalries in recent years. JR and King then toss it backstage as Santino Marella is wandering around. Santino walks through some of WWE’s most famous champions such as Ricky Steamboat, Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes, but he finally runs into…Mick Foley! Foley is backstage tonight as Santino introduces himself to Foley. Foley seems rather happy that he got to meet the one and only Santino Marella as Santino talks about how he’s been in the WWE for a little over two months and he’s already one of Raw’s top superstars. Santino tells Mick that he’s waited nearly two months to make his in-ring debut but he will make it tomorrow night on Raw. Mick says that’s great because he’s going to be at Raw tomorrow night as well! The fans go nuts as Mick tells Santino to “Have a nice day” as Santino yells “You’ a too Micky!”

Shortly after this we head backstage to see ECW announcer Steve Romero trying to catch up with Paul Heyman about the firing of Rob Van Dam and the new ECW Champion here tonight. Quickly Heyman’s limo pulls off before Romero can get an answer but suddenly the limo backs up. Heyman rolls his window down and says “Tuesday…” as Heyman suddenly speeds off once again.

Match #5 – Cruiserweight Championship
Gregory Helms (c) vs. Paul London

Helms and London both get a good bit of time considering the match that they put on at Judgment Day so creative seems rather content knowing that they are capable of going out there and putting on a good show here tonight. Helms and London both entertain the fans as the cruiserweights can only do as they both really put a lot of passion and energy into the match. London and Helms both work a clean match as it seems London may be coming oh so close to winning his third Cruiserweight title after hitting a nice Dropsault off the ropes. London quickly rebounds off the ropes but Helms trips him up before locking an armbar on London. Helms is yelling for London to tap out as Helms is trying to showcase that he can fly, mat wrestle, and pretty much do everything. Helms watches London slowly sit up before London jumps onto the shoulders of Helms looking for a Hurricanrana but Helms tries hitting a Powerbomb! Helms runs London over towards the ropes but London flips over bringing Helms over the ropes with him! London amazingly caught his balance though as he landed on the apron! London looks back at Helms quickly leaping onto the middle rope before trying for a Moonsault but Helms moves sliding back into the ring. The referee begins to count out London as London isn’t able to make it back in and Helms retains the gold here tonight.

Winner via countout – Still Cruiserweight Champion - Gregory Helms


Michael Cole and Josh Matthews talk about the heart that Paul London showed in the match but that he wasn’t able to pull out his third title. The fans cheer London on as Helms barely retained his title tonight had it not been for London’s “high risk” attitude tonight. The fans applaud London as he gets back to his feet turning away assistance as he makes his way to the back. The camera follows him to the back as many of the Cruiserweights are applauding his performance before he bumps into Shawn Michaels backstage. HBK looks at London before muttering “You’ve got it in you…kid” as HBK walks off heading towards the locker rooms.

Backstage Todd Grisham is about to interview all four participants in the Championship Scramble for later on tonight. Grisham first off interviews Triple H who talks about how he’s had recent problems with Batista but he can’t let that stop him here tonight. The Game says that he’s on a mission and that 11th World title is haunting him like never before. The Game says despite what anybody may think of him now or ever thought of him, he’s got to do this not only for himself but for the fans. This draws in a cheap pop as Hunter dares Batista to get in his way tonight because he will be “taken out” if he does so.

Match #6 – World Tag Team Championships
The Gold Standards (c’s) vs. CM Punk and Brian Kendrick

A great tag team match takes place here as the Gold Standards duo of Elijah Burke and Shelton Benjamin are the champions carrying the titles for nearly five months as they tonight take on the duo of CM Punk and Brian Kendrick. Kendrick is fresh off a eleven month title reign with Paul London back in February so of course we know he is eager to get some gold. It shows in the match as Kendrick brings it to Burke early on in the match but the frequent tagging of Burke and Benjamin ends up being a burden for Punk and Kendrick as Burke and Benjamin are able to double team thanks to the interference from their manager Theodore Long. Long keeps the referee distracted despite getting caught earlier tonight in the Mack/Hardy match but this time it’s a different referee. This gives Burke and Benjamin ample time to double team him as Punk is trying to get his attention. Burke hits a nice suplex covering but only getting a two count on Kendrick. Burke quickly tags Benjamin back in as Benjamin runs off the ropes and both Burke and Benjamin hit a maneuver very similar to Cade and Murdoch’s “Sweet and Sour” swiping Kendrick off his feet. Punk comes into the ring breaking the count up as Burke runs at Punk! Punk ducks emptying Burke out of the ring as Burke tumbles onto the floor on the outside. Punk is sent back over to his corner as he is trying to help Kendrick get back into the match. The fans cheer on Kendrick as he is so close to tagging in Punk as Kendrick finally gets the energy to tag in Punk! Punk runs at Benjamin ducking a clothesline before grabbing Benjamin by his neck from behind and hitting a neckbreaker. Punk quickly grabs Benjamin whipping him into the corner before Benjamin tries to reverse it. Punk is too quick though as he gets the final whip into the corner before hitting the Running Knee followed by the Bulldog! Punk teases Benjamin to get back onto his feet for the Go to Sleep before Burke gets back onto the ropes! Kendrick climbs onto the top turnbuckle leaping off with a Crossbody taking Burke down on the outside before Punk pulls Benjamin in hitting the Go to Sleep! Punk covers and Kendrick and Punk are the new champions

Winners – NEW World Tag Team Champions – CM Punk and Brian Kendrick


Punk and Kendrick celebrate with their titles as they are the second new champions to be crowned tonight along with the Great Khali. Punk and Kendrick are handed their new titles as they go around slapping hands with the fans as JR and King go nuts hyping the new champions.

Maria is standing by backstage with the man that is about to challenge for the World-Heavyweight Championship, Ric Flair! The fans go wild as Ric Flair is here tonight about to challenge for his first major title in nearly three years! The fans look on as Flair cuts a wild promo talking about him being a 16 time World Champion but just wanting one more run on top. The fans cheer on Flair as he continues talking about his famous legacy, what’s he done in his career, and that tonight he not only gets rid of the thorn in his side (Edge) he realizes his dream for the WOOOO! 17th time! Flair lets out a loud WOOOOOOO!!!! One more time.

A video package plays hyping once again the Edge/Flair predicament but also focuses on HBK which is mainly the story that is being told. It finally ends with clips of HBK moving and letting Edge run right into Flair with the Spear at Judgment Day before their argument shortly after is shown. Right after this we head into the arena for the match.

Match #7 – World-Heavyweight Championship
Edge (c) vs. Ric Flair

Edge and Flair both put on a good match tonight as being honest it’s really nothing special but it’s going to be a good match seeing there will be no interference here tonight from Christian or JBL per order of Mr. McMahon. So Edge has his back against the wall tonight and to make matters worse HBK is at ringside watching the match on commentary with Josh Matthews and Michael Cole. So now Edge has another thing to worry about. But it’s no secret that HBK and Ric Flair certainly are not seeing eye to eye right now. Flair can’t let this cost him the match though and he doesn’t as he brings it to Edge from the get go. Flair throws a lot of his classic knife-edge chops at Edge knowing just what is on the line here tonight. Flair and Edge continue their good match tonight with Flair taking down Edge with a chop block from behind. Flair looks set to lock in the Figure Four Leg Lock before Edge breaks free! Edge slides to the outside of the ring going after his title needing to leave since he knows that he might be losing his title very soon. Edge grabs his title but HBK comes over getting into the face of Edge. Edge and HBK have a stare down as Edge rares back and blasts Michaels with his title! The crowd ooo’s as the referee comes out to help HBK but of course this gives someone time to run it. It can’t be Christian or JBL since they are banned…it’s Finlay? What the hell is Finlay doing? Finlay looks at Flair as the fans are yelling for Flair to turn around before he gets blasted right across the face with the shillelagh. Edge watches Finlay roll out of the ring and Finlay runs into the crowd as shortly after Edge calls the referee into the ring. Edge slides in covering Flair as he retains his gold here tonight.

Winner – Still World Heavyweight Champion – Edge


Michael Cole seems like he’s about to have a convulsion trying to figure out just why Finlay came and interfered in the match. It’s a mystery that nobody seems to know but one can only guess that JBL had something to do with it. Finlay after all did claim he was “looking for a fight” a few weeks ago so maybe he found it? Either way Edge grins retaining his title here tonight as he holds onto his title as his reign continues on at a strong eight and a half months now.

Backstage Todd Grisham goes to interview Batista concerning the Championship Scramble but he doesn’t get an answer at Batista’s locker room door. Grisham takes that as a sign as he now heads over and meets Mr. Kennedy. Kennedy talks about how he’s already became the Number One Draft Pick of the 2007 Draft just because of what he’s done for Raw already. He’s brought Raw to the top and he’s already facing the top dogs around here such as John Cena. Kennedy admits he has a problem with Cena but it’s because Cena got in Kennedy’s way. “One day….” Kennedy says that Cena will recognize just who Mr. Kennedy is.

Edge walks backstage as he meets up with Christian and JBL who bring Finlay into the scene with them. Edge exchanges a hug with his brother as he shakes hands with JBL before looking at Finlay. Edge and Finlay share a smile as they shake hands with one another. The mood is filled with happiness as once again Edge has retained his title. JBL claims that the rivalry is now over and the Power Trip will continue to ride. With Finlay joining this group one must wonder just how dominant they really are.

Match #8 – Intercontinental Championship
Charlie Haas (c) vs. Brent Albright

Haas and Albright put on a great match as these two show just why they were paired together here tonight for combat. It’s really no mystery why because you have two of the greatest wrestlers put on a great clinic out there for the fans with the time that they were given tonight during this match. Haas and Albright exchange many suplexes showing just why they are two of the best that this company has to offer right now. Haas caught Albright off guard towards the end trying for a German with a bridge but Albright held onto the ropes causing Haas to go rolling back! Albright charged at Haas but Haas quickly tripped up Albright by the legs before trying to apply the Haas of Pain on the challenger. Haas quickly attempts to lock in his submission move but Albright breaks free grabbing the ropes quickly. Albright gets back onto his feet as Haas charges at “The Shooter” before Albright moves and Haas rebounds off the ropes! Albright scoops Haas up and hits the Half Nelson suplex! Albright has the cover as the referee comes running over to make the count! One…two…three! New champion!

Winner – NEW Intercontinental Champion – Brent Albright


Charlie Haas can’t believe it as he slaps the mat in anger as Michael Cole and Josh Matthews are going wild at ringside talking about how Albright came in tonight as the underdog but quickly showed just why he is one of the top superstars around here. Albright is handed the Intercontinental title ending the one month reign of Haas just like that. Haas storms around the ring kicking the steel steps before walking over and pushing Josh Matthews out of the way. Haas gets on the mic and says that “Albright has it coming for him….he thinks he’s seen the last of Charlie Haas, well he’s dead wrong about that!” as Haas storms away from the table, all eyes are set on Albright, the new champion tonight!

Backstage John Cena is the final one to be interviewed concerning the pending Championship Scramble Match which is next. Cena is asked about this being his first WWE title shot in a few months and how he is going to respond to it. Cena says he’s fought against the odds before but Mr. Kennedy is just one more obstacle in the way. Kennedy has tried his best to do everything from forcing Cena to bleed and humiliate him to pretty much everything in the book. Cena says whether or not he wins tonight is not the question but whether or not Kennedy actually makes it out of Houston is the question?

A video package plays showing the history between all five of these men focusing a lot on the Batista-HHH impending storyline plus the Cena/Kennedy history. It goes over the rules stating there will be a 20 minute time limit and that two superstars will start it out. Every five minutes a new superstar will come into the match. All of the superstars were drawn at random order and also there will be many pin falls. Whoever gets the pin fall will be the “interim champion” until the bell rings. Whoever is the champion will then be crowned WWE Champion!

Match #9
WWE Championship – 1st Ever Championship Scramble Match
Chris Jericho (c) vs. Batista vs. Triple H vs. Mr. Kennedy vs. John Cena

The match started off tonight with Mr. Kennedy and Triple H. This was the first time that Kennedy and Triple H had ever been in the ring one on one so really these two had to get a feel for one another tonight. However Kennedy struck first when he caught Triple H off guard with a quick Snap DDT before following it off with the Mic Check to become the “interim” champion right before John Cena made his entrance into the match. Cena came in all guns blazing knowing that he had a big chance to take down Kennedy and Triple H to become the “interim” champion for now. Cena did take Triple H down with a big F-U but it was broke up by Kennedy as Kennedy and Cena then got into it. Kennedy tried tossing Cena out of the ring to preserve his run as “interim champion” but it was Cena that changed the tide of the match whenever he tripped up Kennedy for the STFU locking in the hold and forcing Kennedy to submit. Cena had been named the interim champion for now but Triple H begged to differ as he quickly struck Cena with a Spinebuster right after Cena had forced Kennedy to submit making himself the champion as now Batista made his way down to ringside. All three men bar Batista since he just came in had been interim champions so far and Batista wanted to go ahead and make himself the interim champion right away. Kennedy and Cena were down so all eyes were glued on Batista and Triple H in the ring. They went after it for a bit exchanging blows repeatedly until Batista caught Triple H off guard hitting a Spinebuster of his own! Batista went for the Batista Bomb but Cena speared Batista down onto the mat before Cena started exchanging blows with Batista. The match was getting out of hand as nobody became interim champion until Chris Jericho entered. The “current” champion came down relinquishing his title as he immediately went after the interim champion Triple H covering him but only got a two count. The match had about four minutes or so left whenever Kennedy quickly rolled up Jericho from behind becoming “interim champion” once again for the second time in the match. Jericho and Kennedy then got into it as Triple H and Batista got into it once again. Cena and Triple H teamed up trying to take Batista down with a few double team moves but shortly after the egos of Cena and the Game got into the way because they started arguing. It was Cena who quickly scooped Triple H up after a bit of bickering and fighting hitting the F-U becoming interim champion once again. Cena had control of the match with a little less than two minutes left but Jericho begged to differ as he quickly hit the Codebreaker on Batista regaining control of his title for now. The clocked continued to tick down with less than one minute as Jericho had control and it seemed he was going to retain the title. He tried to stand back but went to help Triple H who took Kennedy out of the equation clotheslining him to the outside of the ring. With only 30 seconds left now Cena ran at Triple H but Triple H ducked and threw Cena hard to the outside. Twenty seconds remain as Hunter came running at Jericho but Jericho moved trying to avoid the Game but Jericho couldn’t get out of harm’s way and ran right into the Pedigree from Triple H! Ten seconds left as Triple H was about to cover Jericho but out of nowhere Batista speared Triple H as Triple H completely forgot all about the Animal. The clock ticks down as the referee counts the final pinfall? Or will it be?

One…Two…Three

The clock’s on two seconds as Jericho can’t help but look on as Kennedy and Cena try and cover Triple H quickly but to no avail as we have another new champion tonight!

Winner – NEW WWE Champion – Batista


Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler talk about history being made tonight as all five of these men had a chance of “tasting the gold” being the interim champions but now there is only one champion and he is the “Animal” Batista. Ross and the King talk quickly about how Batista came over from the Draft riding a wave of momentum from Smackdown and now he is the champion. Night of Champions ends with Batista holding the title high in the ring with boos pouring in from the crowd as Batista snickers with Cena, Kennedy, Triple H, and Jericho either all walking away from the ring or still down as the show comes to an end.

Default Re: WWE 2007: UTF - The Inevitable Return

Monday Night Raw
Monday June 25, 2007
San Antonio, Texas

Across the Nation plays with the Raw video package playing before it ending now with Batista holding the World-Heavyweight Championship in the air since he became the champion last night at Night of Champions. Shortly after the video ends we head into the arena as the camera pans around for a bit before settling on the announcers at ringside.

Jim Ross: Hello one and all and welcome to another exciting edition of Monday Night Raw here tonight live in San Antonio, Texas! The rafters are shaking because last night at Night of Champions in Houston Chris Jericho lost his title to “the Animal” Batista in the first ever Championship Scramble Match.

Jerry Lawler: Chris Jericho put up a hard fight but it was Batista who came through in the end to beat the three other men in the match also. I know the fans certainly don’t like Batista but he certainly earned my respect after winning that hard fought match last night.

Jim Ross: Well we’ll be hearing from Batista soon but already we know that we’ve got a stellar night ahead of us on Raw because the “Hardcore Legend” Mick Foley is going to be here as well tonight but for what reason?

Jerry Lawler: There is certainly no telling knowing Mick Foley but I can promise you that if the Hardcore Legend is going to be here tonight, then for sure there is going to be a big surprise for all of the fans here tonight in San Antonio!

I Walk Alone hits across the arena as boos pour out for the new WWE champion as he makes his way into the arena carrying a major world title for the first time in nearly 18 months. Batista slings the WWE title over his shoulder as he makes his way up the steps slowly looking around the arena before getting into the ring and receiving a mic from Lilian Garcia at ringside. Batista walks over to a corner taking a breath for a moment before beginning to speak.

Batista: I did it…

The crowd boos as Batista puts a shit eating grin on his face.

Batista: I did what every single fan here in the WWE has been trying to prevent ever since last January whenever I lost my World-Heavyweight title to Edge. I went in and I won the WWE title and there isn’t a thing that anyone of you low lives can do about it!

Batista slaps the championship proudly showing it off to the fans.

Batista: See this title? I’ve held the World-Heavyweight title once before but never had I even had a chance to wrestle for the WWE championship. So it’s rather ironic that I was able to take this title away in one of my first few title shots because in my very first World-Heavyweight title shot I took the title away from Triple H.

A decent Triple H chant breaks out as Batista simply laughs it off.

Batista: It’s also ironic that two years later I still find myself having problems with Triple H and I still will kick his ass and take my title back once again.

The crowd boos as a big “You’re an asshole” chant breaks out.

Batista: Now I know how this works. It’s a routine thing once a champion loses his title. He comes out here, moans about how he lost it and what not, and then claims he’s got a rematch clause that he is going to use very soon. But see Randy Orton went about it differently. He waited for nearly two months after he lost his title only to injure himself in a Steel Cage? See I know Chris you are smarter than that and won’t fall for that one but trust me…whenever and wherever you want this rematch…I’m game!

Batista stops for a moment adjusting the title on his shoulder as he continues on.

Batista: You see the fact is that Chris, I won this title fair and square. And to be honest if I were the General Manager I don’t think you’d deserve a rematch just because of the fact that I had to also go through four men to just win this title. I wasn’t temporary champion until the last TWO seconds of the match. I had my back against the wall just like you did so really being honest I don’t think you deserve a DAMN THING!

Batista smiles as the crowd is clearly pissed off at him now.

Batista: It’s clear though that you will want one and it’s clear you don’t just realize how dangerous I am. I’ve went face to face with the best this business has to offer and came out on top every single time. It’s a fact of life Chris and the fa…

Time to Play the Game hits across the arena as Triple H makes his way out to the arena to a mixed reaction from the fans. The fans are mostly cheering the Game though as he walks down the ramp refusing to take his eyes off Batista as he doesn’t even bother doing his routine entrance by spitting the water into the air. Instead the Game knows he’s got a big task ahead of him if he wants to be wearing that title and it begins tonight.

Triple H: Just hold it there Dave…I’ve heard all about how you’ve beaten the best and what not but let me just remind you that it’s been two years since you beat me. I made a mistake at overlooking you because I didn’t know that you were fully capable of running through me. I should have known though since after all…I’m the reason you’ve got that belt on your shoulder!

The crowd “ooo’s” as Batista doesn’t say anything knowing that it’s true.

Triple H: I brought you up from the pits of nowhere. I picked you and Randy Orton to be the future of this business and damn does it seem like I was right. Both are multi time World Champions now BUT you’re not as good as I am…

The crowd cheers on Triple H as Batista seems to take offense to the comments now.

Batista: Oh really? How about I take this microphone and shove it up your ass….

Batista and Triple H come face to face with one another as quickly the music of Eric Bischoff hits across the arena breaking up the confrontation. Bischoff is escorted by security as he clearly doesn’t want to see this kick off the show like this.

Eric Bischoff: Gentlemen….we’re not going to be having this here tonight. It’s just not going to go down like this.

The crowd boos Bischoff as he ignores them and continues on.

Eric Bischoff: I can’t have you two bickering about who is the best and what not because quite frankly we need to prove that in the ring. I was thinking about putting the match on tonight for the main event but then decided that I better wait since San Antonio is one of the worst cities in America…

The crowd boos as Bischoff’s cheap heat attempt.

Eric Bischoff: So I then decided what not a better place to hold it then at Raw’s first ever presentation of the Great American Bash? For three years Smackdown has hosted the Great American Bash but this year Raw gets to host it and I couldn’t think of a better headlining match for the PPV than Batista versus Triple H for the WWE Championship!

The crowd pops at the major announcement taking place as these two former friends stare one another down.

Eric Bischoff: But the thing is this match is only less than four weeks away and until then we need a little bit of time to um…”hype” the match per say. So here is what I’m thinking we do tonight…How about we throw Batista in the ring to team with the NEW ECW Champion The Great Khali in his Raw farewell match to take on the duo of Triple H and the former WWE champion Chris Jericho? How’s that sound?

The crowd loves the announcement of the match.

Eric Bischoff: Well then…it’s on!

With that Bischoff makes his exit as we hear JR and King hype up the major tag team match before mentioning the huge match set for the Great American Bash in less than four weeks time.

Match #1 – Singles Match
Santino Marella vs. Rene Dupree w/ Rob Conway


Santino is making his debut here tonight in the ring despite having been on TV for nearly two months. Santino of course tries to joke with Dupree but Dupree took some offense and starting beating the living mess out of Santino. Dupree was ramming Santino into the corner repeatedly while getting his tag team partner Conway to help him double team Santino. Conway was choking Santino out in the corner as Dupree had the referee distracted. Marella ended up fighting back as Dupree went for the Dupree Bomb but quickly Santino reversed shoving Dupree off into the ropes before rolling him up from behind! Santino got the pinfall win in his very first match on Raw as he rolled out of the ring celebrating his win.

Winner – Santino Marella

Jim Ross: What a win for Santino Marella here tonight as he certainly has made me a believer of what he can do in the ring.

Jerry Lawler: Believer? All he did was roll up Dupree from behind after Dupree failed to put the match away. If I had been in there I would have made sure that Santino wouldn’t have even stood a chance.

Jim Ross: Oh I’m sure King. Well right now we’ve got word that Chris Jericho is just arriving to the arena and has no clue that he has a tag team match here tonight to compete in. Let’s send it backstage to Todd Grisham.

The camera cuts backstage to see Todd Grisham walking up to a limo. Out steps the former WWE Champion Chris Jericho who looks in a sour mood. Jericho steps out the door walking towards Grisham as Grisham tries to question him.

Todd Grisham: Chris I’m very sorry about last night’s loss but the question that many people want to know is when and where will you cash in your rematch clause?

Chris Jericho: Todd I’m really not in the mood right now to talk about this. I’ve got business to take care of tonight with Eric Bischoff.

Todd Grisham: Speaking of Eric Bischoff, do you know that he booked you in a tag team match tonight to team with Triple H to take on The Great Khali and Batista?

Chris Jericho: …

Jericho doesn’t know what to say as clearly he isn’t in the state of mind to compete tonight. Jericho just looks very pissed off as he marches his way backstage presumably to the office of the Raw General Manager Eric Bischoff.

---Commercial---

We are sent backstage immediately after the commercial to see Theodore Long in his locker room sitting down and talking to Rodney Mack and the Gold Standards.

Theodore Long: Listen up playas…

Long pauses as the camera show the disgruntled faces of Mack, Benjamin, and Burke.

Theodore Long: Last night was not exactly the best night that we’ve ever had here since I came back as a manager ya feel me? Well regardless I will soon be making plans to meet with Eric Bischoff concerning our title rematch for the tag titles? How’s that playas?

Long waits to see what Benjamin and Burke are going to say as they stop Long.

Shelton Benjamin: Listen Teddy, that’s fine and all, but when you brought us into this group you said we were going to be unstoppable, that we were going to be a major force to be reckoned with. It sure didn’t seem like that last night because it looks like to me that Punk and Kendrick won not because of us but because of YOU!

Elijah Burke: I can’t help but agree with Shelton, Teddy. I mean you did say you were going to help us and really all you did was hurt us. But regardless we’re going to bring this to Eric Bischoff and see what he says! He has to accept our rematch because if not that will just be another strike against us and prove why we are being held down…

Shelton Benjamin: Because of our skin color!

Benjamin and Burke nod to one another as Long cheers them on.

Theodore Long: That’s the spirit dawgs. We all know that’s why we’ve all seen all of the top superstars held down. Why you think there wasn’t one single black man in that Championship Scramble last night? The closest thing to one was John Cena and he completely embarrasses us with his crappy raps. So if we can’t get Bischoff to help us…then we’ll have to do something about it ourselves…

Long looks at Burke and Benjamin as they agree as Long turns towards the “Bayou Beast” now.

Theodore Long: Rodney, you in?

Mack stands up nodding his head as Long smiles before we head into the arena right now.

Jim Ross: Theodore Long is intent on bringing this faction of his to the top but if he’ll be able to get there is the question that must be asked?

Jerry Lawler: Absolutely he will JR. I think that you’re just trying to hold down the “brothers” just like many other people here in the WWE are trying to do.

Jim Ross: Oh please King.

Suddenly unfamiliar music hits across the arena as we only hear the words “Priceless” playing across the arena. The fans turn their attention to the ramp as two youngsters make their way down the ramp. These two men get into the ring as the fans really have no clue who they are. One asks for a mic as he begins to speak.

Young Man: Now I know you all want to know just who we are…well let it be known that we are the sons of two of the most famous legends in the WWE…Ted DiBiase and Dusty Rhodes. I myself am Ted DiBiase Jr. and he is Cody Rhodes…

The crowd cheers for DiBiase and Rhodes as they are proud to see some sons of legends on the roster now.

Ted DiBiase: Well the fact is that our fathers did and still have a great legacy here in the WWE and they pretty much paved the way for us to find our way onto the Raw roster now. Without our dads I’m not so sure if we’d be here right now…

The crowd pops as they appreciate hearing these words from the two youngsters.

Ted DiBiase: But the fact is that was back in the 1980’s and the 1990’s. Flash forward now to the year 2007 and we’re just making our debut here on Raw and we are already bigger stars than our fathers were! Just being brutally honest, it’s already evident that we are going to be household names here on Monday Night Raw!

The crowd now starts to boo this duo of DiBiase and Rhodes as it’s clear that they are full of themselves.

Ted DiBiase: But don’t just ask me…ask Cody himself!

DiBiase passes the mic over to Cody Rhodes as Rhodes looks around the arena.

Cody Rhodes: Ted I couldn’t have said it any better myself. See we’re only new names around here for now but shortly we’ll be household names here. Everyone is going to immediately know just who we are and they will forget about our fathers…

The crowd boos this as DiBiase keeps on encouraging Rhodes to speak.

Cody Rhodes: And eventually each and every one of you are going to learn just why not only Ted but myself are…

Rhodes and DiBiase both speak into the mic at the same time.

DiBiase and Rhodes: Priceless!

Match #2
Priceless (Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes) vs. 2 Local Jobbers


DiBiase and Rhodes make quick work of the two local jobbers as they came in here tonight in their debut to clearly make an impact. Rhodes hit one of the jobbers with a nice and swift DDT before DiBiase locked in his father’s famous move, The Million Dollar Dream, forcing the other jobber to submit rather quickly as these two newcomers have secured a victory rather quickly in their debut here on Monday Night Raw.

Winners – Priceless

---Commercial---

We come back from the break as “Gone” by Fuel is playing as we cut over to the commentators at ringside.

Jim Ross: Ladies and gentlemen right now you are listening to the official theme song of Night of Champions from last night which is “Gone” by Fuel. We thank Fuel for providing the theme song for Night of Champions.

Jerry Lawler: Indeed it was an epic night but it only brought about perhaps a bunch of changes that will scour the landscape of the WWE for the next few months to come.

Jim Ross: Indeed it will King and what a night it still is to come. We’ve got that epic tag team match later tonight with the new WWE champion Batista teaming with the ECW Champion The Great Khali to take on both former WWE champions in Triple H and Chris Jericho. What a star studded match that is going to be!

Jerry Lawler: I certainly can’t wait for that JR but trust me, we’ve still got a lot more to come here tonight before that tag team match!

Wreck hits across the arena as soon as King stops talking. Suddenly out steps Mick Foley who made his announcement last night that he was going to be here on Raw tonight. Mick Foley makes his way down to the ring dressed up of course in his flannel shirt and sweatpants as he slaps hands with fans. Foley rolls into the ring before receiving a mic as a big “Foley” chant slowly starts to die down.

Mick Foley: Let me just go ahead and get it out of the way and say that it is great to be here live on Raw tonight in the wonderful city of San Antonio, Texas!

The crowd loves the cheap pop as of course Foley throws his thumb up smiling.

Mick Foley: But let’s go ahead and get down to business here tonight. See I’m here for one reason and that is because well Mr. McMahon wanted to see me here tonight on Raw. Nobody really knew backstage why but it was because Mr. McMahon has big plans for Raw next week and for some reason I have been thrown into these plans?

The crowd pops loudly for Foley.

Mick Foley: It’s great isn’t it? Well regardless I must say that it has been a while since I’ve been on Raw now. Probably about a year or so and I must say that it is indeed great to be back home on camera in front of all of these fans here and all of them watching at home. Let me just go ahead and get Mr. McMahon out here and then we can talk about next week’s huge show…

No Chance hits across the arena as Mr. McMahon makes his way down the ramp looking happy tonight (for a change) as he struts down the aisle doing his famous power walk. McMahon gets into the ring shaking hands with Foley before he gets a mic handed to him from Lilian Garcia. Mr. McMahon looks around the arena smiling for a bit before beginning to talk.

Mr. McMahon: I must share my sentiments with Mick here and say that it is indeed great to be back here tonight in San Antonio…

The crowd pops loud for once again another cheap pop.

Mr. McMahon: Anyways concerning next week’s big Raw. ..

The crowd pops for the big announcement concerning Raw next week.

Mr. McMahon: Ever since I have “shaken” up Raw a bit I have wanted to see how Eric Bischoff has responded to these changes. I mean first I brought him back in as General Manager after about a year absence or show and I handed the job off to “The Coach” for a bit but that miserably failed. So I needed someone to really step up their game and well I thought Bischoff was going to be the first person to do this. So next week here on Raw we are going to be “grading” Eric Bischoff’s performance so far as the GM since coming back and seeing if we need to keep him or fire him!

The crowd starts a big “Fire him!” chant as McMahon can’t help but smile at that.

Mr. McMahon: But that’s not the only “shakeup” that I’ve been wanting to do here on Raw. I mean we just had the Draft about two months ago and don’t get me wrong we’ve had a big shakeup here but still there’s just something that’s not right. And after reviewing Raw’s ratings for the past few weeks they’ve been “dipping low” recently so I have made a decision and that is why you are here tonight Mick Foley.

McMahon turns to Foley as Foley gives McMahon the thumbs up wishing McMahon to continue speaking.

Mr. McMahon: First off let me say that you truly are one of the most respected workers here in the WWE and that is why I have you here tonight to “fill” this position and we…

I’m Back hits across the arena as Eric Bischoff makes his way out to the stage tonight. Bischoff makes his walk down the ramp as he gets into the ring looking at Foley and McMahon wondering just why Foley is out here. Bischoff has a mic in hand already as he starts to speak.

Eric Bischoff: Just what in the hell are you thinking letting Mick Foley stand in MY ring?

The crowd “ooo’s” as they know Bischoff just crossed a line there stating it’s “his” ring.

Mr. McMahon: First off I am the man that runs this business so technically it is MY ring and secondly you will NOT talk to me like that. So anyways let me continue on with what I was talking about before you rudely interrupted me. So Mick I’ve looked at all your credentials recently and decided that regardless of what happens next week to Eric Bischoff…I just wanted to go ahead and say that YOU as of now are the Co- General Manager of Monday Night Raw!

The crowd goes nuts as Foley shows a smile on his face.

Eric Bischoff: You let this scum of the earth be the general manager? Vince when you broke these brands apart you said you had a “vision” Is this vision having garbage such as Mick Foley run your show? Because I know how you are Vince, you’ll fail me next week on purpose just to try and screw me over. I know how you do things around here and it’s not going to go down like that.

Bischoff looks ready to leave but McMahon stops him.

Mr. McMahon: Wait stop Eric…

McMahon pauses for a brief moment.

Mr. McMahon: You brought this upon yourself Eric. You’re the one that has been showing all of the favoritism recently to certain superstars and that is why I’ve brought Mick into the equation here now. So regardless if you stay, he’ll be here and if you’re fired next week, he’ll be here! Now isn’t that comforting to know?

The crowd laughs as Bischoff leaves the ring speechless.

Mick Foley: Oh and Eric…wait! I’ve got a few announcements concerning not only Raw next week but the Great American Bash. See I heard that you’ve been having problems recently with Chris Jericho. Well you know what? I decided to take these actions into my own hands and now I’m throwing YOU into a match next week with Eric Bischoff and I’M going to be the Special Referee!

The crowd pops for the big announcement for next week’s Raw.

Mick Foley: And also Chris talked to me earlier before I came out here and said he was going to talk to you about wanting to cash in his rematch clause and said that he wants it at the Great American Bash. Now I know I can’t change your main event but that’s why I’m making it a Triple Threat between Batista, Triple H, and Jericho at the Bash. Oh and Eric…

Bischoff turns around to Foley who’s got a giant smile on his face.

Mick Foley: Have a nice day!

Wreck hits across the arena as Bischoff makes his way up the ramp with a smug look on his face. It seems like Bischoff got “outplayed” tonight and now he finds himself with his back against the wall. Either way it’s a lose-lose situation for Bischoff. Foley and McMahon shake hands as we cut over to JR and the King.

Jim Ross: What a huge announcement right there from Mr. McMahon naming Foley the Co-GM here on Raw.

Jerry Lawler: I don’t know JR. He might be our only GM after next week since Bischoff has to go through grading next week here on Raw.

Jim Ross: I’ve never seen a General Manager have to “get graded” but regardless I’m almost positive that Bischoff is going to fail next week for being a low life piece of shi…

Jerry Lawler: Whoa! Hold it JR! This isn’t the Oklahoma Sooners football team we’re talking about now is it?

Jim Ross: Oh very funny King. Regardless, when we come back, we’ve got former WWE Champion John Cena in action…and that’s next!

---Commercial---

Match #3 – Singles Match
John Cena vs. Chavo Guerrero w/ Bam Neely


Cena and Guerrero actually put on a decent match as these two both surprise one another in the fact that Guerrero is actually getting offense on Cena. It seems Guerrero might be in for a push soon but Cena seems to try and stop Guerrero’s comebacks in the match. Guerrero flew off the ropes towards the end for a Frog Splash but misses. However Guerrero gracefully rolled through landing on his back and rolling back onto his feet. But right when Guerrero turned around he ran right into a clothesline from Cena. Cena started to mount some offense on Guerrero after hitting the Five Knuckle Shuffle before getting ready to pick up Cena. Bam Neely however got onto the ropes distracting the referee which allowed Mr. Kennedy to come sliding into the ring. Kennedy grabbed Cena’s trademark chain from the corner before wrapping it around his fists and hitting Cena in the head with it! Blood is starting to trickle out from the head of Cena as Guerrero climbs the ropes before this time hitting a Frog Splash! The fans boo as Kennedy makes his way up the ramp as Guerrero hits the Frog Splash for the victory.

Winner – Chavo Guerrero

Guerrero leaps out of the ring into the arms of Bam Neely as Chavo is acting as if its Christmas time right now. Guerrero and Neely celebrate for a bit longer as Cena finally comes to realize what fully just happened before him. Right after we head backstage to see Mr. Kennedy being interviewed by Todd Grisham.

Todd Grisham: Come on Mr. Kennedy; please tell us why you just interfered in John Cena’s match costing him a victory here tonight?

Mr. Kennedy: Todd it’s plain and simple. Cena cost me a victory last night in the Championship Scramble match so I knew that I had to return the favor. I knew what is on the line and that is my reputation. I’ve stated that ever since I came to Raw that I clearly was the biggest thing to hit this brand. Well John Cena begs to differ. So I did what I had to do and that was take out your precious little John Cena with his “hood” chain and prove a fact to each and every one of these ignorant fans just why I am so dangerous.

Todd Grisham: Wha..

Mr. Kennedy: Let me go ahead and clear something up with you John. See we’ve fought like mad men for the past three months but I want to be the one to finally end this. I want to be the person that finally takes his rightful place as the top superstar here not only on Raw but in the WWE. So look at that blood that is dripping out of your head right now. You better get used to it because at the Great American Bash….I’m going to make you bleed again. Why you ask John?


Kennedy pauses looking at the camera in a rather vindictive way.

Mr. Kennedy: Because I am challenging you to a First Blood Match at the Great American Bash. We’ll see just who truly the “top dawg” is as you’d like to say here on Raw.

Kennedy walks off but instead of yelling his name, he whispers it in a monotone voice.

Mr. Kennedy: Kennedy.

The voices of the commentators now come over as we’re about to head to a commercial.

Jim Ross: Well then, the Bash is looking bigger than ever because we’ve already got two big matches. One is the Triple Threat Match between Triple H, Chris Jericho, and the WWE Champion Batista and now this new match.

Jerry Lawler: Cena and Kennedy are surely going to beat the living hell out of one another in this First Blood Match but remember Cena has yet to accept the challenge.

Jim Ross: Like he is going to back down from it? Please you know John Cena just as well as I do and you know he never backs down from a challenge.

Jerry Lawler: Well regardless he’s got a big one lying head of him whether he accepts it or decides to decline it. Then either way I think Mr. Kennedy will come out the winner.

---Commercial---

We come backstage after the break to see the Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix carrying her title around. She bumps into Victoria backstage as they chat and talk for a few moments before Mickie James comes out of nowhere as a big catfight breaks out! Security comes in breaking it up as it’s clear that Mickie and Beth are not done with just yet…

Shortly after this mini-cat fight takes place, we head into the arena for our next match.

Match #4 – Singles Match
Brian Kendrick w/ CM Punk vs. Elijah Burke w/ Shelton Benjamin, Rodney Mack, and Theodore Long


As you can tell the odds were definently in the favor of one half of the former tag team champions in Burke as he had three men backing him but United States Champion Matt Hardy came down to watch and make sure Rodney Mack didn’t interfere in the match evening it up a bit. Kendrick and Burke tried to fight throughout all the distractions but it seemed too much and that’s what caused the downfall of the match for the new champions. Or was it? The referee kicked Long and co. out from ringside after constant interference which left Burke out here by himself. Hardy and Punk eyed Benjamin, Mack, and Long as they all left leaving it to Kendrick and Burke in the ring. Of course Burke naturally got distracted right whenever his manager and teammates left allowing Kendrick to hit Sliced Bread #2 for the pinfall victory!

Winner – Brian Kendrick

Kendrick and Punk celebrate with their titles for a bit as Hardy gets into the ring with them. Long, Benjamin, and Mack come back out to help Burke up the ramp as Hardy, Punk, and Kendrick hold their titles high in the air waving them around for not only the fans but their rivals to see. Right after this match is over we head backstage to see Eric Bischoff in his office sitting down in his chair and suddenly some unknown walks in.

Unknown Person: Mr. Bischoff, you wanted to see me?

Bischoff turns around with a smile turning to his face as he speaks to this person.

Eric Bischoff: Ah listen, it’s great to see you here….

Bischoff pauses trying to remember this person’s name.

The camera turns to see a blonde haired man as he reaches out shaking the hand of Bischoff.

Unknown Person: Just call me “The Natural” Nic Nemeth.

Bischoff shakes hands with Nemeth for a bit before Bischoff tells him to sit down.

Eric Bischoff: So I’m sure you know we’ve got the New Talent Initiative going on right now and I’m really happy to see that you are going to be another one of Raw’s new talents. We just lost one of our new superstars to ECW (The Great Khali) so since I had a few roster voids (despite Priceless coming in tonight) I thought that I’d let you join the roster.

Bischoff smiles as Nemeth shows a happy look on his face.

Eric Bischoff: Well anyways I’ve got a huge main event to watch now and assess before next week’s grading of me so I’ll talk to you later…um…

Nic Nemeth: “The Natural” Nic Nemeth!

Nemeth smiles once again shaking the hand of Bischoff as we now head out to a final commercial before the main event is set to come on.

---Commercial---

Jim Ross: It’s been an exciting night here on Raw and well with “The Natural” making his way over here, Raw is gaining just a whole lot of brand new superstars right now.

Jerry Lawler: I really like this “Natural” guy as he has just something about him. I can’t really point it out but I must say that he seems like “my type” of wrestler.

Jim Ross: King, that’s rather funny because both of you seem to be very full of yourselves. Regardless, now it is time for our main event that we’ve been waiting for all evening. I must say that it’s going to be one hell of a slobberknocker.

Jerry Lawler: Slobberknocker? Who says that word anymore?

Match #5 – Tag Team Main Event
Batista and The Great Khali vs. Triple H and Chris Jericho


The tag team main event goes on right now as it’s sure to be one great match tonight with two champions teaming together. This is Great Khali’s last appearance on Raw since he is now the ECW champion despite having been on Raw for only more than two months. Anyways back to the match now. Batista and Khali worked a lot of offense over on HHH and Jericho making sure to tag in a lot as Khali and Batista remained very fresh throughout the entire match. But towards the end it was whenever Triple H shoved Khali into Batista that made Batista the legal man! Jericho ran over helping Triple H clothesline Khali out of the ring somehow as the mammoth of a man took a tumble to the outside. Back in the ring Batista and Triple H were both the legal men which had these two former friends and now bitter enemies go at it. Khali got back onto his feet but left his partner Batista in the ring as Ranjin Singh told him “this match has no effect on you Khali” leaving Batista to be fed to the lions. Batista got thrown off his game here allowing Triple H to take advantage and hit a Pedigree on Batista! Triple H got the cover pinning the new champion here tonight.

Winners- Triple H and Chris Jericho

Triple H celebrated his win as Jericho and Triple H both came face to face with one another. It’s clear that these three men all have different agendas come the Great American Bash and that there will be no siding with one another.

Jim Ross: What a night it’s been! First from the Triple Threat being announced to Mick Foley being named co-GM to having three new superstars come in!

Jerry Lawler: Bischoff got screwed over and you know it JR! Well regardless I must say that it has been a fun night despite my opposing views of what you think.

Jim Ross: Of course King. Always going against me. Well anyways tune in next week on Raw because we’ve got Chris Jericho going one on one with Eric Bischoff and Mick Foley will be the Special Referee PLUS Eric Bischoff could very well be fired next week on Raw.

Jerry Lawler: Good night everybody!

*********

Let me first go ahead and say that this probably isn't one of my best shows. It's my first full show in a few months or so and I must say that it didn't really come out well as planned. Anyways I'm going to go towards the GAB in full now on all three shows mainly because I've got some big plans for the next few weeks in the thread.

Some comments are welcomed as I really don't "review" anymore but I probably would drop some comments on your show, etc. It won't be a full fledged review but I'd try to comment, etc.
