Re: WWE 2007: UTF - The Inevitable Return

Monday Night Raw – July 23, 2007
Arco Arena – Sacramento, California

Raw kicks off tonight with a video package hyping the events of the Great American Bash. It first showcases the First Blood Match that showed Mr. Kennedy grab John Cena’s chain and attack Cena causing him to bleed. Next was the United States title match which Matt Hardy successfully retained his United States championship. The third match of the night was the World Tag Team Ladder Match which saw CM Punk and Brian Kendrick end their long feud with the Gold Standards after retaining their gold. Paul Burchill claiming he attacked Undertaker and Kane showing up for the match was shown. Kane and Undertaker’s eerie staredown was briefly shown before Mickie James winning her second Women’s Championship aired. Finally, the Triple Threat Match for the WWE title had the most clips in it but ended with Randy Orton RKO’ing Chris Jericho while Jericho had the Walls of Jericho locked in on Batista which allowed Batista to cover Jericho and retain the gold.

To Be Loved, the new music of Raw, by Papa Roach plays across the arena as the Raw video package airs before we cut into the arena. Many signs in the stands are shown as always before we head over to the commentators at ringside.

Jim Ross: Hello one and all and welcome to another exciting edition of Monday Night Raw! The Biggest Party of the Summer, SummerSlam, is only a little less than six weeks away and we’ll be finding out a lot tonight for what Eric Bischoff and Mick Foley have planned for Raw’s part at least at SummerSlam!

Jerry Lawler: There’s been many exciting and also yet strange things going on here on Raw but still we’ve got a lot to get to tonight. Matt Hardy will defend his United States title only twenty four hours after he retained it against Chavo Guerrero.

Jim Ross: Hardy’s definently going to have a big test against Raw’s newcomer and the undefeated Santino Marella but either way something tells me we might have a good match on our hands.

Jerry Lawler: Plus the big announcement of who’s going to represent Raw in the Brand Supremacy Match at SummerSlam will come later tonight but when? Well only Eric Bischoff knows the answer to that question!

Burn in my Light

Randy Orton makes his way down the entrance ramp for the first time in over a month in his first appearance on Raw since the “injury” he suffered in the Steel Cage Match. Orton walks down in his street clothes not really showing any emotions. Orton steps into the ring looking around the arena soaking in the heat from the fans as he stands for a moment and is handed a mic from the lovely Lilian Garcia at ringside.

Randy Orton: It seems that there’s been many people around here that have somewhat doubted that I was injured over the course of the past month.

The crowd turns to boos now as its clear Orton was playing off this injury.

Randy Orton: Many people think it was a cover up, just a plan for me to get out of action for a bit and well screw over Chris Jericho in the process. But that’s not what it was! No. I really was injured. I really was bruised and battered during the Steel Cage Match and I’ve got my doctor’s note to prove it but what happened over the course of that month can only be described in words by me!

Orton walks from side to side trying to think of what to say next.

Randy Orton: That night that I walked into that Steel Cage with Chris Jericho…I knew something wasn’t right. I knew I was putting not only my job but my career and even my life at risk. I knew by stepping into that cage that I could have my career cut short just like that (snaps his fingers) and well there wasn’t going to be much that I could do. But in a weird way, I felt like I was at home. I felt like I had control over Chris Jericho inside of that cage and that I had his career, life, and job plus his WWE title all in the palm of my hands! I felt like I could use him as a pawn in this game and well I failed! Not only did I fail in getting to the finish line but I failed and was injured in the process.

The fans seem confused with the way Orton is wording things but seem to understand a little bit of what he’s getting at.

Randy Orton: So as I sat back at home from late June until this past Saturday one day before the Great American Bash, I was in pain. I was stuck at home with nothing to do but watch Chris Jericho run crazy on Raw with the WWE championship. But I got my wish at Night of Champions when my former Evolution running buddy Batista defeated Chris Jericho in the Championship Scramble Match that I was supposed to be in! It was supposed to be ME that night but I didn’t get there because of my injury all thanks to Chris Jericho.

The fans start a chant for Jericho as Orton continues on ignoring them.

Randy Orton: But this past month that I had off gave me some time to recover. It gave me time to rest and truly and fully understand just what Chris Jericho had done to me. First off he robbed me of the WWE Championship back at WrestleMania! Then to make matters worse he injured me inside of the Steel Cage. That was the last straw and I did what I had to at the Great American Bash. They say the “third time is the charm” and well the third time that something happened between Jericho and myself, well it resulted in Jericho being laid out and no title for him.

The crowd boos as Orton stops.

Randy Orton: Really though over this time I developed a complete understanding about what happened in that steel cage though. As I mentioned earlier it felt like I was at “home” so to speak. So it gave me time to think about it and well I’ve decided that Chris Jericho, if we must end this war once and for all, we must do it in an appropriate way. We must do it in a place that makes sense and makes sure that neither one of us is the same again. We must do war in a place that ends careers, shortens life spans, and gives not one damn about what happens to you in there…

The crowd begins to understand where Orton is getting.

Randy Orton: Chris…at SummerSlam we must battle in Hell…

Orton pauses as the crowd has caught on.

Randy Orton: Hell in a Cell!

Break the Walls Down

The music of Chris Jericho plays across the arena as a battered and bruised Chris Jericho makes his way down the ramp clearly and visibly angry about losing in the Triple Threat Match last night at the Great American Bash. Jericho shows no emotions either as he stares down Orton his entire way down the ramp. It looks like Jericho is ready for a fight before the music of Eric Bischoff interrupts Jericho.

I’m Back

As mentioned Bischoff’s music cut Jericho off on his way down to the ramp as Bischoff starts yelling at Jericho to stop.

Eric Bischoff: Don’t you do it Jericho!

Jericho is standing on the outside of the ring ready to slide in and attack Bischoff as Jericho can be seen mouthing “he’s not injured” and stuff of that nature.

Eric Bischoff: Randy Orton is just coming off of an injury and I cannot have you trying to put him back on the shelf again. I cannot afford to lose another superstar especially considering that John Cena may be out for a month or so now. But the thing is Jericho you look angry and you have every right to be angry. But you shouldn’t be angry YET because I’ve got a proposition for you tonight.

Jericho grabs a mic from Lilian.

Chris Jericho: Would you please shut the hell up Bischoff? All you do is come out here and run your head and really nobody cares about the crap that spews from your mouth. Clearly I’m not in the mood for your “propo…”

Eric Bischoff: Oh really? Well see I was about to give you the night off after your hard fought match last night BUT…since you felt the need to get an attitude with me ; you will be in action tonight…you will be taking on the “World’s Strongest Man” and one of Raw’s newest superstars over from ECW in Mark Henry. He’s certainly not in a good mood and something tells me you might just fall prey to the “Silverback”

Chris Jericho: You son of a bi…

Eric Bischoff: Cut his mic off!

Bischoff cuts Jericho off at just the right time as Jericho starts mouthing at Bischoff. Jericho looks towards the ring as Orton stares him down.

Eric Bischoff: And Randy I seem to like your idea for SummerSlam. So it’s settled. Raw’s first match for the Biggest Party of the Summer has been signed. Randy Orton meets Chris Jericho inside of the Hell in a Cell! Now security, if I could have Mr. Jericho escorted to the back now to make sure there is no brawl of any type right now, I’d appreciate it.

Security comes down to escort Chris Jericho to the back as Randy Orton looks on with a smug look as Jericho is escorted to the back. Jericho stares up at the titantron that is focusing on Orton. Jericho stares at the titantron before he finally is gone from the scene.

***Commercial Break***

Match #1 – United States Championship – Singles Match
Matt Hardy (c) vs. Santino Marella

Hardy and Marella wrestle a decent match but Marella tries to avoid Hardy a lot during the match as it’s clear that Hardy was dominating the match pretty much from the get go. Marella though being undefeated (despite having wrestled few matches) put up a good fight but got caught towards the end by Hardy. Hardy kneed Marella in the face before following it up by a big Side Effect and then followed Marella up with the Twist of Fate getting the victory and retaining his title once more over the formerly undefeated “Italian Superstar” Santino Marella

Winner and STILL United States Champion – Matt Hardy

Hardy was handed his title he’s had for nearly six months as he held the title high in the air to celebrate. Hardy helped Santino back to his feet as Santino hung his head but Hardy gave a few words to Santino to cheer him up. Hardy was about to leave the ring whenever he was blasted from behind by Shelton Benjamin and Elijah Burke. Benjamin attacked Hardy going on the prowl as Burke threw Santino towards the outside. Burke and Benjamin both double teamed Hardy in the ring as Theodore Long yelled from the outside at Santino. Burke and Benjamin both stood over Hardy in the ring as the commentators are going crazy at ringside (as can be expected)

Jim Ross: What in the hell is going on around here? Eric Bischoff and Mick Foley need to get a bit more of control because we’ve been having a lot of these attacks and what not the past few weeks and quite frankly it’s getting ridiculous.

Jerry Lawler: For whatever reasons the Gold Standards have, they certainly did a number tonight here on Matt Hardy but I’ve got a feeling I know that Hardy has something that they want.

Jim Ross: Most likely it has a lot to do with the United States Championship but of course only one person can hold the title. It’s obvious two people can’t hold the title so really I want to know why a tag team wants to go after a singles title?

Jerry Lawler: Well that’s them JR! That’s their thinking so don’t ask me? Why don’t you go and ask Benjamin, Burke, and T-Lo themselves?

We’re sent backstage now to see Lena Yada standing by backstage with “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry

Lena Yada: Ladies and gentlemen at this time my guest making his return to Raw for the first time in three and a half years…Mark Henry!

The camera pans over to show the “World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry.

Lena Yada: Mark the last time you were on Raw you were injured in a match and well when you made your return you went to Smackdown. Just recently you were on ECW but due to the closing of that brand you never did get another shot at the ECW championship. What would you say is your first goal here on Raw?

Mark Henry: It’s simple. My first goal is the goal that I’ve been trying to achieve ever since last year’s SummerSlam where I fell short in the World-Heavyweight Championship Triple Threat Match. I had the match won. I had it won but no! I was screwed out of the title and well now that I’m back here on Raw things couldn’t look any better for the World’s Strongest Man.

Lena Yada: Mark, later on tonight you’ve got a match with Chris Jericho per orders of Eric Bischoff. Jericho certainly isn’t in a good mood so how are you looking forward to this match tonight?

Mark Henry: Do you really think someone with the name “The World’s Strongest Man” really gives a crap about Chris Jericho? As far as I’m concerned Chris Jericho is just another stepping stone on my way to the top of the Raw Jungle. Chris Jericho is just one more obstacle that is stopping me from getting to where I need to be and well, that’s at the top. That’s the WWE champion and it won’t be too long until the Silverback is sitting on the throne at the top of the pyramid as the WWE champion!

Lena Yada: Mark…

Mark Henry walks off with a purpose tonight as Raw heads to another commercial break.

**Commercial Break**

Match #2 – Tag Team Match – Non-Title Match
CM Punk and Brian Kendrick (c’s) vs. Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch

Punk and Kendrick get a match tonight against former tag team champs in Cade and Murdoch who have a big opportunity tonight. Punk and Kendrick both dominated the match for a while but it was Cade and Murdoch’s turn towards the end. Cade and Murdoch came so close to ending the match and possibly earning a future title shot with the Sweet and Sour but Kendrick came in breaking it up with a dropkick to Murdoch. Punk fought off Cade (the legal man) as Kendrick hit a nice Plancha over the ropes onto Murdoch after he clotheslined Murdoch to the outside. Punk quickly dropped Cade with the GTS as Punk covered getting the win for the champs.

Winners – CM Punk and Brian Kendrick

We’re sent briefly backstage to see the duo of Priceless (Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase) watching the match with a rather interesting look on their faces.

Jim Ross: What a win tonight for the tag team champions but I’m wondering why Priceless was watching their match so intently?

Jerry Lawler: Let’s put two and two together JR. Priceless is the new tag team on the block, they’ve got a few victories, and now they feel they deserve the titles. Does that make any sense to an old fart like you?

Jim Ross: Watch it King! I had a feeling that’s what it was but you never know nowadays. They could be planning almost anything but certainly Punk and Kendrick have been on one heck of a roll recently with their tag titles they won last month at Night of Champions.

Jerry Lawler: They certainly have been and I must say that I am very looking forward to seeing who’s the next team to step up and try to take these titles away.

We go backstage after the break to see Kelly Kelly and Kenny Dykstra standing by in a corner.

Kenny Dykstra: Kelly I just wish everyone here on Raw knew how much I loved you…

Kelly Kelly: Trust me Kenny…I think they already know.

Kenny and Kelly get ready to share a kiss before Cryme Tyme walk by.

JTG: Yo…yo…yo….yo….yo!

Shad: YO!

Kenny looks stunned as he pulls back and looks at JTG and Shad.

JTG: Say guh….what you say about you giving us those tight pink panties you got on…

Kelly Kelly looks completely embarrassed as her g-string was showing! Kelly Kelly pushes it down as JTG and Shad both share a laugh.

Kenny Dykstra: Just who in the hell are you two?

JTG: Oh yeah…I’m JTG…and this is Shad.


JTG: And we’re Cryme Tyme!

JTG and Shad both do a nice handshake before they leap in the air and slap hands on the back of their palms.

Kenny Dykstra: What in the hell was that? Is that some kind of ghetto code for there’s drugs nearby or something?

JTG and Shad laugh as Kenny goes back to talking to Kelly Kelly but JTG and Shad both look at one another.

JTG: So you’re new from ECW right and well we got ourselves a special ECW merchandise sale. CHYEAH! Yo my boy Shad…show ‘dem what we got!

Shad whips out an ECW t-shirt that has a RIP covering the new ECW logo, a foam ECW championship belt, and the ECW Superstars t-shirt that has all of the superstars on it.

Shad: BAM!

JTG: ‘Dat’s right we got many…many exclusive things here from ECW and well we’re all going to sell them at half price. Hell we’ll even throw in your girlfriend but she sells herself already to many guys out there as it is for FREE.

Shad: DAMN!

Kenny Dykstra: Hey bud…do you realize just who you’re talking to?

Shad: J…isn’t that…wow that’s that cheerleader guy isn’t it? The one that wore those green pants with four other guys?

JTG: Damn…you sure?

Shad: Yeah it is!

Kenny Dykstra: Nice joke guys. We’ll see who’s laughing one day because I promise I will take care of this situation and prove just why I’m Raw’s newest and most valued commodity when I take you two “thugs” (sarcastically) down. Kelly, let’s go…

Kelly Kelly walks towards Kenny Dykstra as she gives the eye to Cryme Tyme as we head to another commercial break.

**Commercial Break**

I Walk Alone

The music of the WWE champion Batista hits across the arena as “The Animal” Batista makes his way down towards the ring. Batista carries his WWE title around his shoulder as he walks down the ramp in his dress clothes before getting into the ring. Batista throws the title over his other shoulder as he receives a mic from Lilian.

Batista: Last night I did what many people here said wasn’t going to happen at the Great American Bash and that was retain my WWE Championship. There was millions of people that went against me, that said I stood not one slim chance but I did it. I went in there and despite a little help from my former friend in Evolution in Randy Orton, I came out on top and that is why right now I’m standing here once again and STILL the WWE champion!

The crowd boos Batista as Batista holds the title high as the fans look on in disgust.

Batista: But you hear that same boring speech everytime someone either wins or retains a title. This isn’t the same boring title reign that I first had when I actually gave a damn about each and every one of you idiots back in 2005. No, now I could care less and look where it’s gotten me. To the top of the mountain! It’s immediately brought me back my title that I’ve been longing for over a year and it all came to fruition last month at Night of Champions.

Batista paces from side to side.

Batista: But once again you always hear the same thing over and over and over about how the champ went in and came out victorious and so on. But anyways for the past few weeks I’ve challenged Triple H to finally get back with me and give me an answer as to why it seems he’s failed ever since Evolution disbanded? Why it is that he just can’t seem to get over the tip of the iceberg? Why it’s the fact that he clearly hasn’t done a damn thing since I drove him through that table and ended Evolution right here on Raw over two years ago!

The crowd boos recalling that historic moment on Raw prior to WrestleMania 21.

Batista: It’s clear that I was the muscles of Evolution (flexing his muscles) but apparently I WAS EVOLUTION! Randy can make his claims as can Ric to some degree but I am pretty much what made that group. I am what kept the group together despite all the times that everybody argued which nobody here would see when the camera was off. I am the man that single handedly held perhaps one of the most dominant factions in professional wrestling history and I was a “nobody” then.

Batista takes off his sunglasses as he puts them in his pocket.

Batista: At least that’s what Hunter wanted me to think; that I was a nobody. But I showed him that I was “somebody” when I beat his ass THREE times in a row. Once at WrestleMania, once at Backlash, then finally at Vengeance! I bested the Game three times in a row and I shut up Hunter once and for all, well I thought so at least…

Batista walks from side to side as he continues speaking.

Batista: Now Hunter wants to come back around here running his mouth about how he’s the best, about how he’s a 10 time champion, and well I look at it this way. That’s just ten times that he’s already lost the championship that he had to earn. I’m a 2-time champion but when I held this title, I made damn sure people knew I had a World title. My first reign lasted nine months and my second one’s only started a month ago but I’m looking to make this one go the distance.

The crowd boos Batista as he’s clearly irritating the fans now.

Batista: It just seems Hunter can’t get over the fact that without me…he’s NOTHING…

Time to Play the Game

With that; the music of Triple H hits across the Arco Arena as 10-time World Champion Triple H makes his way down to the ramp. Triple H is sporting his new shirt as he walks down the ramp rather pissed about what occurred at the ‘Bash. Triple H steps into the ring taking his eyes off Batista only to walk up the steps as he walks over and is handed a mic. A big Triple H chant breaks out as it’s clear the Game is hear and ready to speak his thoughts on Batista.

Triple H: Dave, I’ve heard enough. I listened to your entire speech about how you were Evolution, you beat me three times, I’m nothing, blah, blah, blah and quite frankly…nobody cares what comes out of your mouth really.

The crowd laughs at the comments as Triple H remains serious.

Triple H: You sit here and talk all this crap when really you don’t have anything to back it up? Oh sure you’ve held the World title twice, well first off let me congratulate you on that and secondly let me say that I don’t give a damn! You see in this business it doesn’t matter how long your on top but really that you’ve been on top. You’ve certainly earned the respect of many superstars here on Raw and on Smackdown but one person that doesn’t respect you is ME.

The crowd “Oooo’s” as Batista comes a bit closer to Triple H.

Batista: See there you go again Hunter. You talk all of this crap but do I need to remind you of what you’ve done in the past few years since Evolution ended. Let’s see. You know about your three losses to me already and well you had your head stuck up your father-in-law’s ass pretty much all of 2006 and I’m trying to recall your title wins and I just can’t do it? Oh wait. That’s because you blew each and every one of the title shots you had and really, it wasn’t that many to begin with anyways!

Batista and Triple H get a bit closer as Triple H mouths something to Batista.

Triple H: All this crap about being “Evolution” and all that doesn’t matter because I blame myself every day for creating Evolution. I blame myself for making your head so big that you actually think you are one of the best champions this company has seen when in reality you’re not…

Triple H and Batista continue to trade “blows to the ego” as it might not end.

Triple H: Oh and Dave do I need to remind you of the fact that you wouldn’t be here right now at all if I didn’t “hand pick” you out of all of the Raw superstars back then. Do I n…

Batista: You didn’t do a thing for me Hunter. I did everything for MYSELF. I learned from Day One that everyone is in this business for themselves and that you really don’t have any friends. I remember what we did to Randy after he won the title and I sure as hell wasn’t going to let you do that to me when I finally won the title so I had to take action…that’s why I took you out.

The crowd boos Batista (despite him having been the face whenever he attacked Triple H in 2005, and now he’s the heel)

Triple H: I’ll tell you right now had Randy not interfered Sunday I’d be WWE champion right now. I had the title won. I had it right there in my grasp but no. But it’s okay because I have a feeling it won’t be too long until you see the Game on top as WWE Champion for the ELEVENTH TIME!

Suddenly Mick Foley is shown on the titantron.

Mick Foley: Gentlemen if you’d please stop the arguing I’ll go ahead and announce that the other co-General Manager in Eric Bischoff and myself have agreed upon a very important matter.

The crowd pops wondering what Foley is talking about.

Mick Foley: Due to Eric being busy with the Brand Supremacy Match plans, he has allowed me to announce that this war will finally end at SummerSlam. It seems very fitting because many feuds are going to be “blown off” at SummerSlam and well there’s nothing bigger than having a match such as Triple H vs. Batista for the WWE Championship at the Biggest Party of the Summer!

The crowd goes nuts for the announcement of the big title match as Triple H grins with Batista looking pissed.

Mick Foley: Now gentlemen if you will…we have a show to continue on.

Triple H continues grinning at Batista as Batista does look still pissed that he has a big title match at SummerSlam against his former “teacher” in Triple H. Triple H leaves the ring first backing up the ramp as Batista is left standing in the ring.

Jim Ross: OH MY GAWD! SummerSlam is getting even bigger and bigger! So many matches are set for the Biggest Party of the Summer! First off Randy Orton is meeting Chris Jericho in Hell in a Cell and now this?

Jerry Lawler: Indeed. It’s been over two years since Batista has met Triple H one on one and I am very much looking forward to these two hooking up once again.

Jim Ross: I just can’t believe it King. We’ve waited a while to find out who truly was Evolution so to speak and now we’ll find out come SummerSlam! It’s going to be one hell of a party that is for sure and with more matches to come!

Jerry Lawler: I’m just as much excited as you are JR! I have a feeling we’re looking at one of the biggest SummerSlam’s in history JR!

**Commercial Break**

Match #3 – Singles Match
Mr. Kennedy vs. Tommy Dreamer

Mr. Kennedy meets ECW Original Tommy Dreamer tonight as Kennedy makes rather quick work of Dreamer. Dreamer really never stood much of a chance from the word go but he did put up a decent fight. However it was the rather impressive Mr. Kennedy that was able to earn the victory after he first nailed Dreamer with a nice kick to the face knocking Dreamer down onto the mat before Kennedy quickly capitalized by following up the kick to the face and then proceeded to hit the Mic Check to get the victory over one of Raw’s newest superstars via the ECW Draft.

Winner – Mr. Kennedy

Mr. Kennedy points to the rafters as Turn up the Treble hits but he grabs his mic which came down from the rafters.

Mr. Kennedy: STOP THE MUSIC.

Mr. Kennedy looks around the arena as he holds his mic in his hand.

Mr. Kennedy: Just last night I was able to beat “your hero” John Cena in the First Blood Match and I bloodied him so bad that he couldn’t be here at Raw tonight. Now I’m trying not to break down right now because John Cena not being here truly is…well it’s sad.

The crowd boos as Kennedy’s sarcasm is easy to see through.

Mr. Kennedy: But what stunned me was that somebody…somebody tried to steal my thunder last night. A certain someone felt the need to make their so called “awaited return” to Raw when really there’s not one fan that even cares about him.

The crowd boos Kennedy as it’s clear Kennedy is calling out the Deadman.

Mr. Kennedy: I’m talking about your “Mr. Deadman” The Undertaker!

The crowd pops loudly at the mention of the Undertaker’s name.

Mr. Kennedy: Not only that stunned me but the fact that your brother Kane felt the need to attack Paul Burchill and get into a match with Burchill taking your place in the match? Now that sounds like a coward to me Undertaker…getting your brother to take your place in a match.

The crowd boos Mr. Kennedy as the brash and arrogant Kennedy continues the trash talking.

Mr. Kennedy: But let me be the first one to say that it wasn’t Paul Burchill that “did it.” No that’s just a cover up, a publicity stunt for Burchill to get attention. If you really want to know who “did it” Undertaker…there’s many people that it could be, hell it might even be your brother Kane. But really if you want to know who did it; look no further than me…MISTER KENNEDYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY………..

Kennedy shows a smile on his face as he climbs the turnbuckles.


Mr. Kennedy throws the microphone into the air as he makes his way out of the arena with the commentators beginning to discuss what Kennedy is talking about.

Jim Ross: Well this thing that Kennedy “supposedly did” if you all are unaware is “he supposedly attacked Undertaker” backstage after a show. Nobody was aware of this incident until the Undertaker wasn’t seen for months and well ever since then we’ve had countless superstars such as Paul Burchill and Mr. Kennedy claim they were the ones who attacked him.

Jerry Lawler: I like Kennedy but I don’t think he’s crazy enough to try and mess with someone like the Deadman. I mean Kennedy is a crazy guy but this crazy? I don’t think so.

Jim Ross: I’m just curious to see who it really was King. I mean this has been going on for almost a month or so with people claiming they’ve done it. Who’s next? You.

Jerry Lawler: Oh I assure you I sure as hell didn’t attack the Undertaker. That’d be like writing my own death note right now.

We’re sent backstage to see Santino Marella holding an ice patch over the back of his neck.

Santino Marella: AH! (Yelling as the doctor slaps him on his back.)

Doctor: Oh I’m sorry Santino…

Santino Marella: Sona’magun!

Santino makes his way out of the Doctor’s office in the back as he walks out before he bumps into Kane backstage!

Santino Marella: MAMA MIA!

Santino looks up shrieking at the massive size of Kane as he’s never ran into someone this big. Kane starts a rather creepy laugh as Santino walks off shrieking.

Santino Marella: That isa’ one biga’ monster.

Santino runs off as Kane is seen laughing as the camera pans over to Kane.

Kane: Soon….the wrath will be felt…the pain will be returned….and finally I will have my revenge. Soon….I show everyone just who I am.

The crowd looks confused as the words of Kane as we now head to another commercial break after that rather small but yet eerie segment we just witnessed.

**Commercial Break**

A video package suddenly starts to play as the familiar music of one, Rob Van Dam plays a loud as clips of RVD doing many kicks is shown.

Narrator: Last month Rob Van Dam was suspended from ECW only to see his “home” come crashing down on him with ECW’s closure. Now that ECW’s gone…RVD has no new home.

RVD capturing the ECW Championship at WrestleMania 23 earlier this year is shown in his victory over Mr. Kennedy.

Narrator: But that all changes at SummerSlam…

The SummerSlam logo comes up on the screen as the logo blows in from the ocean.

Narrator: The former WWE and ECW Champion RVD chooses either Raw or Smackdown…August 26th…at the Biggest Party of the Summer!

The short video closes out with RVD doing many more of his roundhouse kicks, etc. that he is trademark for doing. The video closes with Van Dam having his arms crossed staring into the camera as we head over to the ringside commentators.

Jim Ross: Oh my King! What a treat it would be to have Mr. Van Dam back here on Raw. I’m hoping that he does what is best for him and that is come back to the brand he was on before he was drafted to ECW earlier this year!

Jerry Lawler: He certainly is an unpredictable fellow but common sense would say come back to the top brand. But then again after being banged in the head with trash cans and steel chairs for years I don’t think RVD even knows what common sense is!

Jim Ross: Oh stop it King! Well we’ve still got one big main event set to go on in Chris Jericho taking on Mark Henry but as for right now it’s time for a little bit of divas action King! I know you’re looking forward to this.

Jerry Lawler: The New Women’s Champion Mickie James in action! Of course I’m looking forward to this JR!

Match #4 – Tag Team Match
Mickie James and Maryse vs. Beth Phoenix and Melina

We get a rather decent tag team match with one of Raw’s newest divas in former interviewer Maryse stepping into the ring. Maryse doesn’t actually wrestle much leaving that to the Women’s Champion, Mickie James, to do for her team. But mainly Mickie never stood much of a chance to tag back in due to Melina and Beth constantly double teaming her. Mickie finally did get the hot tag to Maryse who knocked Melina down but ran right into Beth Phoenix (who was the legal person at the time) Phoenix went to take down Maryse with a huge powerslam but Mickie chopblocked Phoenix from behind as Beth fell down onto the mat. Maryse and Phoenix both eventually made tags bringing in Mickie and Melina as Mickie caught Melina off guard hitting a nice Mick DDT before finishing off Melina with the Mick Kick for the victory!

Winners – Mickie James and Maryse

The Women’s Champion grabs her title as Mickie and Maryse both celebrate the big tag team victory. Beth points to Mickie’s title saying “it’s not over yet hun” as Mickie continues celebrating trying not to let Beth put a damper on her festivities. Shortly afterwards the camera cut away from the divas celebrating as we’re sent backstage to see Eric Bischoff in his office having many of the Raw superstars gathered in there apparently for the announcement of the Brand Supremacy Match.

Eric Bischoff: Gentlemen, gentlemen if you’d please shut the door we can get these few big announcements out of the way!

Bischoff points to the back where many jobbers are standing as Val Venis and the Miz both shut the door as the meeting is beginning.

Eric Bischoff: Now I’ve looked over the roster for the past few weeks and many times there’s been a lot of different people that were considered for this spot. I’ve considered people such as Triple H (the crowd pops loudly as Triple H looks on smiling) but due to him being in the WWE title match of course he cannot wrestle in the Brand Supremacy Match as well.

The crowd suddenly boos Bischoff.

Eric Bischoff: I’ve considered John Cena but due to his injury he will not be with us until after SummerSlam is what seems to be the news.

The crowd boos Cena missing as they wanted Cena still here.

Eric Bischoff: I’ve even thought about putting Mr. Kennedy, The Undertaker, Kane, Chris Jericho, hell even the WWE Champion Batista in there…but it struck me….

The Raw superstars are on the edge of their seats (well actually not because they’re standing) but anyways…

Eric Bischoff: When Smackdown’s General Manager John Bradshaw Layfield announced who his representative was going to be in Jeff Hardy, it was a no brainer who it was going to be for Raw. It was going to be the person that knows Jeff better than anyone here. The person that knows Jeff inside and out and the person that knows Jeff WILL NOT win at SummerSlam. It’s the person that will be responsible for the firing of John Bradshaw Layfield….so please welcome our Raw representative for SummerSlam’s Brand Supremacy Match…

The Raw superstars look around for the person who’s being announced.

Eric Bischoff: The United States Champion….Matt Hardy!!!

Bischoff and his co-GM Mick Foley are clapping as Matt Hardy walks up towards the office rather confused and shocked.

Eric Bischoff: Now the rest of you are dismissed….Matt stay here please.

Eric Bischoff: First off congratulations Matt and it’s clear that Mick and myself have thought something about you for you to even be considered for this spot.

Matt Hardy: Listen Eric thanks but I’m not so sure about going against my brother and all that to save your job. I mean it’s gr…

Eric Bischoff: Matt, trust me on this one. I have a feeling you’re not only going to win this for Raw but you’re going to win this for yourself. You don’t want to have to hear from your brother Jeff that you blew the match and got your General Manager fired now do you?

Matt Hardy: Well….no.

Eric Bischoff: Ok then, just go home and sleep over it. You’ve got five weeks left until SummerSlam and that’s just five more weeks that might be my last weeks but with you in the match, I know that my job is safely secured.

Bischoff shows a smile as Hardy looks down at his title.

Matt Hardy: Well…ok I gu…

Eric Bischoff: Matt if you win this for me, I promise there will be many and I mean many future “presents” for you in the future.

Hardy looks at Bischoff pondering just what Bischoff means by “presents” as Hardy makes his way out of the office still a little shocked but somewhat excited as well that he gets to represent the Raw brand at SummerSlam.

Jim Ross: What a bombshell King! I think this Brand Supremacy Match has gotten just a bit more personal now with this sibling rivalry about to kick off. I think Bischoff knew all along he was going to pick Hardy for this.

Jerry Lawler: I think he did too King. The fact that he’s putting Matt into this situation which it seems Matt is VERY uncomfortable definitely sounds like something Bischoff would do.

Jim Ross: Well either way Matt Hardy will meet Jeff Hardy at SummerSlam in the Brand Supremacy Match and if Jeff wins, then Eric Bischoff will be fired but if Matt wins; then JBL will be fired from his Smackdown GM job.

Jerry Lawler: Plus over on the Smackdown side, a Fatal 4 Way for the Intercontinental title was announced as the young champion Brent Albright puts his title on the line against three of the hottest and upcoming superstars on Smackdown in Carlito, Charlie Haas, and Paul London! What a match that is going to be over on Smackdown.

Jim Ross: Smackdown also has the rather confusing World-Heavyweight title match that pits the new champion in MVP who cashed in the Money in the Bank briefcase that wasn’t even his to start with against the former champion at the time in Edge. Now MVP meets Edge at SummerSlam with the gold on the line but there’s a lot of bad blood there now in that situation.

Jerry Lawler: And over here on the Raw side of things we’ve got two huge matches announced earlier tonight with Chris Jericho and Randy Orton finally engaging in war for the final time as they will meet one another in the unforgiving structure that is known as Hell in a Cell. They both will enter but the question is will they exit the same as they entered? Most likely not!

Jim Ross: And the main event will pit “Student vs. Teacher” as the WWE Champion Batista puts the gold on the line against his former Evolution mentor in Triple H! The match we’ve been waiting for all summer will finally take place with two of Raw’s biggest superstars clashing in what promises to be one hell of a hard hitting match!

Jerry Lawler: SummerSlam is going to be one of the biggest Pay-Per-View’s of the year and you don’t want to miss it! Call your local cable provider to order SummerSlam early because you don’t want to be left out of the Biggest Party of the Summer!

We’re sent backstage to see Chris Jericho and Mark Henry both in split screens making their way towards the arena for the main event.

Jim Ross: When we come back, Chris Jericho meets Mark Henry one on one and that’s NEXT!

**Commercial Break**

Match #5 – Singles Match
Chris Jericho vs. Mark Henry

The match goes about nine or ten minutes as it really was nothing pretty because it seemed Henry dominated the match most of the time. Randy Orton was sitting over on commentary watching the match pretty much the entire time and really not taking his focus off of Jericho. Henry had Jericho locked in a Bearhug and it seemed the match was nearing the conclusion as Jericho had no chance of getting out but somehow Jericho fought back as he regained his footing. Jericho fought back as he got Henry down to one knee with a nice dropkick before Jericho went to run off the ropes but Randy Orton threw down his headphones and ran over tripping Jericho up as the referee had no choice but to give the victory to Jericho via disqualification.

Winner via DQ – Chris Jericho

Orton pounces on Jericho in the ring as the two are rolling around hitting one another as both men need to be restrained. Mark Henry makes his way out of the ring as he really has nothing to do with this at all. Orton and Jericho both brawl to the outside and make their way into the crowd. Bischoff and Foley are nowhere to be seen as these two are shown battling throughout the arena as Raw comes to a close with all hell breaking loose.

Re: WWE 2007: UTF - The Inevitable Return

Wow, this is one of only a few instances when I was interested enough to read a show that long. A really great Raw and I didn't feel lost at all, which is quite a feat on your part since I missed 3 years' worth of plot.

Anyway, you write some great matches despite them being in recap, I'm very excited about this Jericho and Orton feud since they're two of my favorite superstars and Hell in a Cell only makes it better. I expect to see more of Orton sneak attacks in the future, building up to a tremendous match.

I hope to see Batista retain on Summerslam honestly, because I'm not a big fan of him holding the title. I also liked Cena going out, and not returning on Raw as expected. I also really like the Kennedy turn, having him beat Dreamer after going hardcore on Cena sends a really big message.

I'll be interesting to see what you do with this Hardy angle, but I do hope he drops the title to Benjamin before that happens. A nice twist to have both guys attack Hardy. For some reason the first thing I thought about was that Long would become U.S champ, but I hope not, since I'd rather see Shelton rising, and not playing the bodyguard. Overall a very good Raw, I'll be waiting to read your next show.

Raw Feedback

Hey KOP very nice opening promo if I was to be honest. Randy Orton back and wants Hell in a Cell is good however I felt there was no need for Jericho or Bischoff to come out. In my opinion that should have been just Orton’s time but instead you brought out Jericho and Bischoff and it took away from HIAC a little bit. Jericho should have played it up as something big.

Hardy over Marella and I prefer Marella for comedic value because I don’t really like Matt Hardy but anyway. Best part was after the match when Elijah Burke and his side kick Shelton Benjamin came out and wrecked Hardy and Marella. Burke for US Champ please

Mark Henry was okay seemed very intense and he will get the victory tonight thanks to Orton right???

Punk and Kendrick continue to look the shit and Priceless are not in their league so don’t even think about making them drop the titles to them… Okay?

Kenny and Cryme Tyme interaction was okay but it seemed you were trying to hard to make them funny and it kind of showed. Keep it simple, don’t try and be to cheesy and you should be alright. Oh yeah and if Kenny does not defeat Cryme Tyme there will be dramas.

An okay promo between Batista and HHH. I love the way your going with their feud bringing back the old Evolution days and what not its very compelling. However just when you write your promo’s watch how you word certain things I won’t pick out an example but there are certain parts in your promo’s where you seem to put an extra little word where it is not needed and what not and it takes away from the effect of what is being said.

Kennedy with an easy win. Nothing but a filler but it was good because it gave Kennedy mic time. Kennedy/Undertaker feud would be off the hook however so would Burchill/Undertaker LOL I don’t know exactly where you’re going with this story line but you have my attention

Kane turning heel right??? I hope so anyway maybe bring the mask back to… However this would have been better done if you made a video pop up on the titantron then having him just pop up randomly backstage. Tron video would have been more eerie and that’s what the Kane character needs IMO.

RVD I think will go to Smackdown because during his title reign he just about OWNED everybody on Raw.

Mickie James and Maryse FTW. Very happy with the result of this one for obvisou reasons. (They’re my two favorite Divas)

Love the fact that it will be Brother vs Brother at SS I actually predicted this on last weeks Raw I think and I am happy it came true it shall be awesome. I hope JBL gets fired and becomes an active wrestler again because Bischoff as GM equals severe OWNAGE.

This was always going to be the main event match because of Jericho being in the high profile feud he was in however it just does not seem like a main event match in my opinion. Jericho wins by DQ followed by a beat down. Beat down was predictable but needed to get Orton some heat.

Overall it was an okay show. Their were several things that I didn’t like but the show as a whole was still quite good. I love this thread and I can’t wait to see what comes next.

Re: WWE 2007: UTF - The Inevitable Return

I love seeing PPV events open up with a big match. Gets things rolling from the get go, and Kennedy vs. Cena in the first blood match is an awesome opener that I fully expect Kennedy to win, as losing this type of match doesn’t hurt Cena. Quite long for a first blood match, and I could imagine plenty of near calls with the use of the chair etc. Finish was interesting, with Kennedy going Psycho on Cena with the chain, busting him up big time. Cena will surely go for revenge on Kennedy and should get it at SummerSlam, but it wouldn’t surprise me if Cena was kept off TV for a week or two to sell the head injury. But the big story here … Kennedy just gate crashed the main event scene with this win.

Don’t see the big belt changing hands tonight.

No surprise to see Matt Hardy retain his title tonight given that Chavo was a late replacement for Santino. Time for big competition for Hardy methinks. Chavo and Marella just don’t cut the mustard as real challengers for Matts title.

Ladder match up next, and what a foursome of talent to compete in this one. Interference from Mack could well point towards the Gold Standards expanding into a bigger group. Ultimately, the run in was redundant as the champions keep the belts, and rightfully so after only a month with the titles. Twenty two minutes is phenomenal for a tag match, even with ladders involved. Would’ve liked a couple of spots to be described from the match though, that was a let down not to really get any.

Bit of promo time for Dykstra and Kelly. Good young couple to put together, and after a month or two of racking up wins, he could be a viable contender for Matt Hardys title.

With Bischoffs crazy mind for ideas, I wouldn’t be surprised if he wants to put Matt Hardy up against Jeff @ SummerSlam. That would be a cracking match choice, but I can see Foley having other ideas, and possibly a mini feud between both their picks to represent Raw.

Taker is a no show?? Interesting. Kane then steps in for him … BUT UNDERTAKER RETURNS!!! Brothers of Destruction reunion looks to be on, so who will Burchill align himself with to take them on?? Hopefully Burchill gets the rub in this feud, and doesn’t get buried. Even to ‘hang’ with Taker will help make him.

Bit of promo time for Triple H, but Batista is keeping the belt imo.

Hmm, Cena shouldn’t be at Raw tomorrow, but he might just show up if that promo is anything to go by.

Good to see a title change tonight, and Mickie taking the womens belt is awesome, and could well lead to a long term battle with Beth, and wouldn’t be surprised if the title traded back and forth over the next few months. Epic feud to come methinks.

Law of averages suggest Batista was going to get promo time. Time for talk is over now though…

And main event time…

Heck of a contest, nearly thirty minutes is epic for a PPV main event. Love the fact it went long, and a shocking return from Orton costs Jericho, and as expected, Batista retains the title. That’s two huge matches surely set up for Summer Slam (Batista vs. Hunter, Orton vs. Jericho), and the hottest event of the summer is hotting up big time on Raw, along with the inevitable Kennedy-Cena rematch.

Review for Raw to come tomorrow.

Re: WWE 2007: UTF - The Inevitable Return

Took me a while to get back around to catching up with Raw...

So, the previously 'injured' Randy Orton opens the show, after costing Jericho last night. 'I've got my doctors note to prove it'. LOL. Sounded like a teenager there, with excuses full of bull. Decent enough promo from Orton, running through his injury problems and history with Jericho, and boy oh boy, I didnt expect to see HIAC!!! Wasnt keen on how Bischoff made the match official. The end of Ortons spiel made the match sound epic, but the way Bischoff announced the HIAC made it seem not that important. Heck of a way to open proceedings, with a major Summerslam announcement ... and I mean major. Already looking forward to that one (if the show is being written in full??)

Matt Hardy gets a no frills win over Santino, who was never going to end Hardys run. But the aftermath was interesting, with Benjamin and Burke coming after the US Champion. I guess now they are out of the running for the tag titles, The Gold Standards are making a beeline for Hardys gold. That has the potential for a great feud, with the Gold Standards both chasing the same singles gold.

Mar Henry is a useful guy to have around. Decent big guy that can pose a threat to anyone. Not sure about seeing him in a Raw main event mind, but it seems to be a trend for mid card guys to main event this show rather regularly recently.

Decent victory for the tag champions, and the young upstarts watching backstage would suggest the next port of call in the chase for the tag championships will be Priceless. Long term feud for the belts perhaps?? Should make for a decent feud, as the teams on Raw seem to be growing, with plenty of options to choose from. Priceless chasing for the belts should be good for the next month or two, but I see Punk and Kendrick getting a long run with the belts.

Some of Kenny's grammar seemed a bit hard to follow at points, at least what I was reading seemed hard to read, but it would appear Kenny will be passing a few weeks feuding with Cryme Tyme, probably just to get himself established on Raw, before moving onto a feud potentially with Matt Hardy, as IMO, if the push continues he'll be the heir apparant for the U.S title.

Batista promo started out really badly for my money. Talking about having a boring title run last time seemed odd, but it picked up big time from the mid way point, and by the time The Game made his entrance, you had me won back over, because it really got better and better, to the point where it was some of the best Batista mic work in many's a BTB. Things sure got personal with the introduction of Triple H ... and the inevitable showdown is on for Summerslam - and as of now, Summerslam is shaping up to be something special. Not a fan of Mick Foleys statement that feuds are going to be 'blown off' at Summerslam. That saying just doesnt fit for television purposes.

Jobber win for Kennedy, and I'm glad he got on the mic after, because he needed address his 'coming out' win over Cena at the Bash. So when he instantly starts a new feud (seemingly) with the Undertaker, I'm confused. Thought for sure that the Cena - Kennedy feud would have a lot more mileage in it, and it's a big disappointment that not only does it seem to be over, at least for now, but Kennedy barely made a big deal out of it. The biggest win of his career thus far, and he glossed over it. Disappointing, and there goes the ship sailing.

Kane gets promo time. Push for the Big Red Monster?? Lot's of guys seem to be on the up on Raw, but surely Kane wont be one of them??

New womens champ gets herself a decent win, but as Beth put it, it's not over yet. I'm hoping for an epic feud for the title between the two, spanning four-six months. They own the womens division, it's not a feud to be messed with!!!

My prediction comes true!!! Matt vs Jeff at Summerslam!!! ANOTHER huge contest signed for the biggest party of the summer, and that ought to be an epic. I can imagine both teaming up in the coming weeks, given Matts new feud seemingly against the Gold Standards. Plenty of avenues you can take this one. Great match choice, and Jeff being picked from SD suddenly makes sense.

Matt doesnt seem as keen as Eric though, but could be won around by the incentives on offer it seems. This is most definately going to be great television of the next few weeks with the conflicted Hardy Boys having to go against each other for the future of their brands.

Henry doesnt get beaten, so I'm assuming their are plans for him over the coming months. Jericho gets the DQ win, and I'm interested to see what the ramifications will be of him and Orton brawling through the crowd to end the show.

Hit and miss show on the promo front, but ultimately, excellent build up for Summerslam, and it's shaping up to be an epic event with five MAJOR matches already confirmed.

Re: WWE 2007: UTF - The Inevitable Return

WWE.com News and Notes

The WWE has come to terms today on the release of Smackdown superstar Hornswoggle. The WWE wishes Hornswoggle the best in his future endeavors.

The switch from ECW being ended seems to have went off fine as the superstars from ECW are settling in just fine on their new homes. It might take a while to get settled down as the rosters still are pretty big but there seems to be a sense of knowing that some people's jobs may be on the line.

The Brand Supremacy Match certainly is going to take an interesting turn now as it's Brother vs. Brother. WWE is looking to build this match up rather big as it's not only just GM's jobs on the line but a brother vs. brother rivalry. It certainly is going to be one interesting match come SummerSlam. Creative feels they've got a great plan leading into the match too now which makes it even bigger than it already is.

Randy Orton's surprise return at the Great American Bash came off rather well and creative is happy with it. Orton never really was "injured" but had requested a bit of time off since he's been on the road non-stop. The rest was timed well as now he's got to get ready for his big Hell in a Cell match to end his feud with Jericho that's been steaming pretty much the entire year.

John Cena is going to be out until most likely after SummerSlam due to the taping of his new movie. Mr. Kennedy was given credit for "injuring" Cena and Kennedy seems to be heading in a different direction for now. Don't rule out a possible rematch between the two though in the future as there still is bad blood between one another.

On the Raw side of things, many young superstars are getting a chance to shine such as World Tag Team Champions CM Punk and Brian Kendrick, The Gold Standards, Priceless, Kenny Dykstra and his girlfriend Kelly Kelly plus many other names. However on the Smackdown side it seems to be a "bit crowded" over there with new names coming in from ECW. However the Intercontinental title scene seems just find with Carlito, Paul London, Charlie Haas, and Brent Albright all doing battle come SummerSlam for the prestigious title.

SummerSlam is definently shaping up to be one of the WWE's biggest Pay-Per-Views in the year. Five huge matches already have been announced in Batista vs. Triple H for the WWE title, Orton vs. Jericho in Hell in a Cell, Edge vs. MVP for the World Heavyweight title, the Intercontinental Fatal 4 Way, and the Brand Supremacy Match. There are still more matches yet to be added and it seems one will be added possibly this Friday on Smackdown!


Just a few bits of news and notes. Not really much but I just wanted to give a small update on Smackdown. Most likely Smackdown is going to be recapped this week as I've got a few busy months coming up ahead of me. I've got baseball starting soon, I start back at work today, and well yeah it's going to be hectic. But either way I'll make the most of it and I'll be here still so just look for Smackdown on Sunday most likely.

Re: WWE 2007: UTF - The Inevitable Return

Hornswoggle gone - should go down well as he appears to be a pet hate in BTB.

Interesting to see who else gets the chop, as there does appear to be just a few too many on the roster at the moment.

Well, you are certainly keeping your title as 'most realistic booker', with the time off for Orton, and Cena being written off for a month to film a new movie. Explains why Kennedy is headed in another direction - but it doesnt mean I like the Kennedy - Cena feud being brought to an abrupt end. Kennedy should've at least concentrated a lot more of his promo on beating Cena and putting him on the shelf. Anyway, that's a point that's already been made, and I'll move on ... until next time .

Can see a lot more names getting the boot from SD if it's overcrowded.

Re: WWE 2007: UTF - The Inevitable Return

Hornswoggle gone is good as basically he is a waste of space.

Rosters quite big are you hinting to more releases in the future??? If so jobbers beware.

Hardy vs Hardy has been done before IRL but the WWE did not capitalize on the situation. Hopefully you do.

Kennedy getting credit for injuring Cena is great for some heat.

Smackdown superstars beware it is almost official some of you are getting released.

Your right, the Summerslam card looks sexy already.

You seem very busy, good luck with everything, can't wait for Smackdown

Re: WWE 2007: UTF - The Inevitable Return

Friday Night Smackdown – July 27, 2007
Save Mart Center – Fresno, California

Smackdown tonight kicks off with the video package highlighting last week’s events of Edge announcing he’s cashing in his rematch clause for SummerSlam against MVP for the World-Heavyweight Championship. The main event of Big Show vs. Finlay was shown with Christian interfering in the match and brawling with Finlay as Christian continues to become a thorn in the side of JBL it seems. Jeff Hardy being asked and accepting the invite to represent Smackdown in the Brand Supremacy Match is also shown as we get ready to kick off Smackdown. No opening video package plays as we open straight up with a big surprise.

Shortly after a worker is carrying a tape as he stops and knocks on the door of Smackdown GM JBL. JBL answers the door as the worker walks in with the package and introduces himself as a worker from the AmericanBank Center in Corpus Christi (where Shawn Michaels was attacked backstage) The worker hands JBL a tape explaining they just realized they caught the attacker on camera and that they’re really sorry it took this long. JBL bitches at the worker reminding him it’s been four weeks since they were in Corpus Christi. JBL kicks the worker out and tells Finlay (who was standing by) to go and look for someone to find Shawn Michaels, he’s got something he’s got to show him tonight!

The first match of the night is the former Cruiserweight Champion Gregory Helms in one on one action against Super Crazy (who he attacked last week during the WWE Tag Team title match) Super Crazy has his other fellow allies of the Mexicools in Juventud and Psicosis at ringside for the match but it was Helms that picked up the win after Helms shoved Super Crazy into Psicosis who was standing on the apron. Helms got ready to leave but the other Cruiserweights came out on the ramp (Jimmy Wang Yang, Shannon Moore, Funaki, and etc.) all ran out towards the ramp (due to Helms verbally attacking the Cruiserweight division for the past month) which forces Helms to run out of the arena through the crowd.

Jeff Hardy is interviewed next concerning the Brand Supremacy Match at SummerSlam and the fact that he has to face his brother for their respective General Manager’s jobs. Jeff says that despite the fact he’s wrestling against his brother, he’s got to win this match because he’s representing Smackdown. Jeff says he isn’t in this for JBL or anybody, he’s in it for Smackdown! The fans love this part as Jeff says that “I guess we’ll find out who’s the better Hardy” come SummerSlam as the Charismatic Enigma makes his way out of the scene.

Christian hosts a special edition of “The Peep Show” with a special guest tonight in the Big Show. Christian talks about how he’s been mistreated the past few months despite the fact that he’s done “just about everything” JBL had asked of him. Instead it turned out JBL was just using Edge and Christian and now he finally sees what really JBL wanted them for. Christian introduces his special guest the Big Show. Big Show talks about how “if he can’t be given a title shot now, he has to go out an earn one apparently.” Big Show and Christian both talk about how they both deserve title shots and all this before JBL interrupts them on the big titantron. JBL says Christian does have a point despite the fact that he hates Christian with a passion. JBL says that he’s noticed Christian and Big Show both don’t like Finlay (due to the constant fighting, etc. over the past few weeks and month) so he’s decided that he’s going to book them in a tag match for SummerSlam against Finlay and a returning superstar. Christian and Big Show look confused but JBL says they’ll find out the superstar next week.

The second match of the night is Kofi Kingston making his Smackdown debut tonight as he goes one on one with another Smackdown debutant in Chris Masters. Masters and Kingston wrestle a short seven minute match or so which sees Kingston pull out a surprise win after Masters missed an attempt to lock in the MasterLock as Kingston slid out underneath the arms of Masters and rolled up the Masterpiece for the victory. Kingston celebrated his win as the Masterpiece looked on angry in the ring.

A worker is shown backstage as he walks up the locker room of Shawn Michaels. The worker says that he’s got word that JBL has exclusive video on who attacked him last month. Michaels says he doesn’t believe JBL at all and he thinks it’s another set up so JBL can attack HBK AGAIN as Michaels is jumping straight to conclusions thinking that he was attacked by JBL and co. a month ago. HBK however reluctantly follows the worker as we head off to a break.

The third match of the night sees Charlie Haas take on Paul London tonight as Intercontinental Champion Brent Albright is at ringside to watch and the rival of London (Carlito) is sitting at ringside too. Carlito and Albright get into an argument with Carlito stating that he will be the next champion which distracts London as Carlito and Albright get into a fight as Haas quickly grabs London hitting a German Suplex before locking in the Haas of Pain for the victory. Finally Haas’s last few hard weeks ends with a victory as Haas yells at the top of lungs “No one can stop me”

The WWE Tag Team Champions Jesse and Festus are backstage as they happen to bump into John Morrison backstage. Morrison talks himself up about how he’s the “Guru of Greatness” and all the normal stuff Morrison says before he looks at Festus and slaps Festus right across the face! Of course Festus can’t feel anything but Jesse comes at Morrison. Jesse looks at Morrison as Morrison walks off in what was a rather short segment.

Shawn Michaels is shown walking into the office of JBL as JBL tells Michaels to sit down. JBL first off says that he did not do it. HBK says he does not believe that story and says he wants to see the video now. JBL asks HBK if he’s really ready for this and JBL pushes play on the remote. A video shot from the top corner of the locker room is shown as Michaels was standing up in the corner with his back facing the door as “THE NATURE BOY” RIC FLAIR was shown ambushing Michaels from behind. Flair hit HBK with a chop block before hitting Michaels in the back of the head repeatedly with brass knucks (knocking out HBK) and then flipped HBK over while he was unconscious to beat him in the face repeatedly. The camera switches over to Michaels’s face as HBK sits there thinking about it for a bit as HBK looks confused. He gets up asking where Flair is as clearly HBK is pissed but JBL tells Michaels that Flair is not here tonight! HBK says that next week he finds out really what made the true Ric Flair come back out again.

The main event goes on next as Edge and Jeff Hardy team together to take on MVP and Finlay in a rather good sixteen minute match or so. Edge has of course had his differences with MVP recently and Finlay in the past and Hardy is thrown in here to “test the waters” and see if Hardy really will represent Smackdown well at SummerSlam. The match goes for a while but it was finally the tandem of Edge and Hardy that picked up the big win after Edge speared Finlay down before Hardy dropkicked the World-Heavyweight Champion MVP off the apron before Edge covered Finlay for the victory. Edge and Hardy celebrated in the ring but Edge kept his eyes on MVP. Edge came out to the ring as MVP was mouthing off but big Ezekiel Jackson kept Edge away from MVP! Edge came charging at MVP but Ezekiel Jackson rared back and punched Edge hard in the head as Jackson did his job protecting MVP from Edge. MVP does a beat down on Edge on the walk way and after MVP gets done he throws up the 305 sign before Smackdown comes to a close.
