Re: WWE Unleash the Fury
Friday Night Smackdown!
Friday June 2, 2006
Rise Up by Drowning Pool hits and the normal Smackdown video package plays before we head over to ringside to the commentating team.
Michael Cole: Hello everybody and welcome to once again another exciting night of Friday Night Smackdown!
Tazz: Cole, I’ve been waiting all week and finally the time has come, finally it’s time for the huge Triple Threat match for the title!
Michael Cole: Randy Orton, Edge, and Kurt Angle all doing battle for the World-Heavyweight Championship, that is huge!
Tazz: Of course it is plus the United States title is on the line and a Hardcore Match, what a way to end up kicking off the summer!
Longhorn hits across the arena and out comes the ever so famous limo of John Bradshaw Layfield. The limo stops and out steps the chauffeur before the chauffeur walks over and opens the door for JBL. Out steps JBL whom quickly does a Texas Two Step before he walks down the ramp clad in his American Flag warm up jacket and his wrestling tights on.
John Bradshaw Layfield: You should all be celebrating because right now all of you pieces of trash are in the presence of a true champion! You can all rejoice because you are in the presence of the man who will soon end the nonsense that has been happening here on Smackdown and you are all in the presence of a true businessman!
John Bradshaw Layfield: I have overcome every obstacle that has been thrown at me! I was the longest reigning champion in a decade and rightfully so! I defeated everyone and everything that came at me and no one was able to beat me!
John Bradshaw Layfield: You people boo me, but yet you all feel that you can come out here and chant for some dead promotion? I am the epitomy of what a real champion should be and what a real champion was supposed to be all about! Come hell or high water, I did what I had to do and that was deliver truly in the end and show that I am really the King of Hardcore!
John Bradshaw Layfield: It is indeed true; look at my list of hardcore accomplishments! I’ve competed in bar brawls, Bullrope Matches, No Holds Barred, Last Ride, I Quit, Barbed Wire Steel Cage, Triple Threats, Fatal Four Ways, anything and everything that has been thrown at me has been overcome because I am the King of Hardcore!
John Bradshaw Layfield: Not some lowly promotion that was ran in a damn bingo hall, I am the King of Hardcore of a multi million business! I do what I say I do, and I am what I say I am, and that is that the sun doesn’t rise, that the creek doesn’t rise up, you will all have a hero, a man that stands in front of you right now and you can call him your savior!
Crowd starts You Suck Chants
John Bradshaw Layfield: For I am here to save the thing we call wrestling. I am here to tear down ECW and show I am the only hardcore one that is in this business! I am here to save you all from having to watch that crap that you little “extreme fans” claim to want to see but in the inside you know you’d all rather be watching me, JBL!
John Bradshaw Layfield: Go ahead, chant my name!
John Bradshaw Layfield: JBL…JBL…JBL…JBL!!!
John Bradshaw Layfield: I am the one that has made this business. I smell like smoke because I have walked through fire. Everything I have done I have done it cleanly and my next goal will be to kill off Extreme Championship Wrestling which shouldn’t be too hard considering it’s already dead and it’s just being “relived” for right now! But at One Night Stand, I’m warning everyone to be prepared because I will be there! Not to wrestle but to make something clear!
E…C…Dub Chant Breaks Out
John Bradshaw Layfield: You people all make me sick! Chanting ECDub for these drunken bastards that have no talent. All your little ECW heroes have ever done is throw chairs at one another, fall onto tables, and get drunk afterwards. I put my body on the line in a WRESTLING ring each and every night since I started WRESTLING! Yes, I don’t beat people repeatedly with chairs, I don’t need that! And you don’t need to do that whenever you’re a….
John Bradshaw Layfield: Wrestling God!!!
Longhorn hits across the arena and JBL makes his way up the ramp as his music plays after he ended up tossing his mic to the mat in the ring. The fans boo as JBL waves to the crowd and he will be out here later tonight for the match. JBL walks behind the curtain as his music stops playing and we cut to a commercial.
Michael Cole: And before the commercial break, JBL gave us his thoughts on how he feels about ECW nowadays!
Tazz: Yeah and I had to listen to him continue on, I can’t wait till someone gets a hold of him and just beats the hell out of him
Michael Cole: And speaking of ECW Tazz, in nine days you step back into the ring to which you will be fighting one on one against Sabu!
Tazz: I can’t wait, it’s been a few years but I’m sure myself and Sabu can tear the house down come One Night Stand!
United States Championship
Booker T © vs. Bobby Lashley
Match Overview: The show kicks off with one of the two title matches tonight, the first one being for the United States title. Both men put on a good match, which seems to be given some time as the opener. Booker takes down Lashley with a Houston Side Kick before he starts to measure up Lashley for a Scissors Kick! Booker runs off the ropes for the Scissors Kick but at the last moment Lashley is quick to move. Lashley who runs and delivers a Spear driving Booker hard right into the mat spins around Booker. Lashley hooks the leg of Booker; One…Two…Thre…the foot of Booker is on the ropes as Booker found the energy to do somehow. Lashley grabs Booker and looks for a Running Powerslam but down comes Mr. Kennedy! Kennedy grabs the foot of Lashley and the ref doesn’t see anything! Kennedy pulls hard on the foot and the momentum sends Booker crashing down onto Lashley with a pin! Kennedy remains ducked down on the outside as Booker keeps the pin and Kennedy pulls on Lashley’s foot so he can’t kick out. One…Two…Three!!!
Winner: Booker T
Mr. Kennedy slides into the ring quickly and starts beating down on Lashley with Booker T. Kennedy tell Booker to hold Lashley down as Kennedy makes his way up top. Kennedy looks at Lashley and looks ready to jump with a Kenton Bomb onto Lashley but Matt Hardy comes rushing down the ramp! Hardy pushes Kennedy off the ropes and Hardy gets into the ring before he throws a right at Booker T! Hardy grabs Booker and Irish whips Booker into the ropes before Booker comes right back into a twisting elbow from Hardy! Lashley gets back up and Kennedy charges at Lashley but Lashley ducks, bounces off the ropes and connects with a Spear! Booker gets right back up into a Twist of Fate from Matt and the fans are going wild as Hardy and Lashley shake hands with one another!

We cut backstage to see Josh Matthews standing by with Sylvan.
Josh Matthews: Sylvan, later tonight you will be fighting Hardcore Holly in a Hardcore Match, what do you think about this match?
Sylvan: Wait Josh, you’re talking to the Ambassador of Quebec! Speak to me in a better way because first off, I have something. I need to invite every one of you all to come join me in the wonderful country myself and millions of other people call home! That is the greatest country in the world, and that country happens to be Quebec.
Josh Matthews: Sylvan, you’ve fought Hardcore Holly for nearly a month now and out of two matches you’ve beaten him both. Can you make it three out of three tonight?
Sylvan: Hardcore Holly is just like any other typical American out there, a failure that tries to stand up and “defend their country” but falls on their butt in the ends. See when you’re from Quebec like me, you don’t have to worry about embarrassing yourself like Hardcore Holly has done because we Quebecers have talent, something Hardcore Holly and Americans don’t have, so we don’t rely on Hardcore Matches to help us. And that’s another reason; you should all come and relax in the wonderful city of Quebec!
Josh Matthews: Anything else Sylvan?
Sylvan: Quebec, the Island of tranquility is waiting for you. The home of perhaps the most talented man not only on Smackdown but the WWE. The home of the greatest looking man this business has ever seen and the home of the next World-Heavyweight Champion. Yes and he’s not American, he’s a Quebecer, Sylvan! Bonjour Quebec!
We cut down to ringside to the commentating team.
Michael Cole: Wow, such an arrogant man is Sylvan and I can’t believe he is not afraid of what faces him later tonight.
Tazz: He’s fighting Bob H… Hardcore Holly! Probably one of the toughest men in the WWE and he shows no signs of being afraid.
Michael Cole: Indeed Tazz and that shows guts right there but what about right now, we’ve got Chris Benoit in action!
Tazz: It’s been a wild start to the night so far but let’s see what Benoit is going to bring to the table here tonight on Smackdown!
Chris Benoit vs. Simon Dean
Match Overview: Quick squash match to get the Rabid Wolverine on the card tonight and get him in some action. Benoit fights off offense from Dean as they don’t want Dean looking like a jobber but Dean does put on a good showing. Benoit however trips up Dean as Dean goes for a Simonizer but Benoit being the Rabid Wolverine is quick to catch Dean with a German Suplex! Benoit keeps the arms hooked on Dean and rolls back up before connecting with another German Suplex! The fans cheer in approval as Benoit keeps the arms hooked before he pops the third and final of the three German Suplex. Benoit does his classic throat taunt before he makes his way onto the top rope looking for a Diving Headbutt! Benoit leaps off the ropes but right at the last moment, Dean rolls away and Benoit connects with the mat! Both men are down and after a minute Dean walks over and grabs Benoit and flips him over for a pin but Benoit gets a cradle! Benoit rolls over with the cradle and locks in the Crippler Crossface! The fans are going wild as Benoit yells for Dean to give up and finally, Dean taps out giving the win to Benoit!
Winner: Chris Benoit
We cut out to a black screen before suddenly, Let the Bodies Hit the Floor plays from Drowning Pool, across the screen comes highlights from last year’s One Night Stand.
Narrator: Last year, ECW made its return when it invaded the entire city of New York and the Hammerstein Ballroom.
Clips of the Hammerstein Ballroom are shown as the camera is scanning across the empty arena with shots of New York City thrown in.
Narrator: For the first time in four years, ECW was back and alive.
Clips of the opening bout, Chris Jericho vs. Lance Storm, the Three Way Dance, and Rey Mysterio vs. Psychosis are shown.
Narrator: And nobody was going to ruin ECW’s moment in the spotlight for this truly was a special night in New York.
Clips of the Raw and Smackdown wrestlers coming down to the ring with the post-show brawl-taking place being shown on the screen.
Narrator: And this year, it’ll be no different.
We cut to see images of Triple H doing his classic pose, spitting the water in the air, delivering the Pedigree to many opponents and we see Triple H, Vince McMahon, and Kane all holding their hands high on the ramp from Raw.
Triple H: Rob, I am the Game, I am the true King of Kings and I’m looking forward to making sure your reign is dethroned on your own turf.
We cut to see images of Van Dam winning the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 22 with Van Dam delivering the Frog Splash. Shortly after, highlights of Van Dam doing his thumb taunt and many other key moves are shown.
Rob Van Dam: Hunter, ECW was something special and you’re looking at truly a One of a Kind Superstar, the WWE Champion…Rob…Van…Dam!!!
We see images of Van Dam and Triple H staring down one another with Van Dam backed up in the ring by fellow ECW compadres while Triple H has McMahon and Kane behind him.
Narrator: This year everything’s on the line. Pride but most of all, the WWE Championship! Rob Van Dam versus Triple H!
We see images of Van Dam and Triple H in a split screen delivering their key moves once again before it cuts out, we cut to Paul Heyman real quickly.
Paul Heyman: ECW One Night Stand II, Live on Sunday June 11, 2006! ECW makes it’s return, are you ready for it?
We cut backstage after the promo ends to see Paul Heyman walking around wearing his ECW hat before he bumps into John Bradshaw Layfield.
Paul Heyman: JBL.
John Bradshaw Layfield: Paul Heyman, just the man I was looking for!
Paul Heyman: Really?
John Bradshaw Layfield: First off, I want to say this is an honor and privilege to talk to you once again because just in nine days, I’ll be ridding the WWE of ECW! And I thought you would just like to know that I will indeed be at One Night Stand, just like last year and trust me, I won’t be there to watch that hideous flying around the ring that you all call wrestling!
Paul Heyman: John, that’s nice and all but really, let me clear something up for you. You can bring anybody else in the WWE you want to, it still won’t change the minds and hearts of the loyal ECW supporters we have! ECW still lives on today and it’s amazing to know that they are still out there to support us each and every step of the way! You can try your best John to “take down” ECW like Shane McMahon is this Sunday, but you’re going to fall flat on your ass again, just like you did when John Cena took your WWE Championship.
John Bradshaw Layfield: That’s a nice one Paul, very nice. And all jokes aside, I don’t think you’re going to have to worry about killing off ECW too much considering it’s been dead for five years and counting. Right now, all that’s left is those smartasses that fell the need to yell out ECW to simply try and piss off real talented wrestlers such as myself!
Heyman cracks a smile and starts to laugh.
John Bradshaw Layfield: What’s so funny Paul?
Paul Heyman: Oh, it’s nothing John! I just can’t help but notice that you said ECW is dead? Truly, you can’t be talking about Extreme Championship Wrestling? The promotion that revolutionized what professional wrestling is today. We weren’t afraid of crossing the line, we weren’t afraid of doing what had to be done and we weren’t afraid to stand up for what we believed in which showed that we truly had the balls.
John Bradshaw Layfield: Sure Paul, that was 2001, newsflash this is 2006! We haven’t been in 2001 in 5 years. Five years ago I was teaming with a reject named Ron Simmons in one of the greatest, wait the greatest tag teams ever! But that’s beside the point, the fact is that in five years ECW has been dead, I made a name for myself! I let everyone know who I am and that all happened whenever in 2004, I won the WWE Championship!
Paul Heyman: And you haven’t won it since, Mr. “Money in the Bank.” John, I’m a busy man and quite frankly, I don’t have the time to mess around with you all night so I’ll go ahead and say this. If you have the balls, you drag your ass into that arena on June 11 and see if there aren’t any ECW wrestlers waiting for you. Last year, your little brigade tried to come in and ruin everything, this year is different! This year, we won’t back down again, and we won’t let you all come into our house and ruin our night!
John Bradshaw Layfield: Don’t worry Paul, I’ll be there, just be ready!
We see Heyman and JBL walk their separate ways before we cut down to ringside.
Michael Cole: Wow, some heated tension nowadays between the workers of the WWE and ECW, will it ever stop?
Tazz: I doubt it Cole, the WWE workers seem having an attitude with the ECW workers is the bright and right thing to do.
Michael Cole: Anyways, coming up after the commercial, Sylvan meets Hardcore Holly in a Hardcore Match!
Tazz: A heated feud indeed and it comes to rest tonight, will we see Sylvan walk away with a major win tonight?
Sylvan vs. Hardcore Holly
Match Overview: The crowd gets to see a good hardcore match to end the feud off with but of course, it’s nothing too extreme. It has its chair shots thrown in along with the table being brought into the ring as well. Holly grabs the table and sets it up in the ring looking to throw Sylvan through the table but Sylvan doesn’t let that happen. Sylvan Irish Whips Holly quickly and backs come Holly but right then, Holly runs right into a steel chair shot! Holly’s face connects with the chair hard and Sylvan drags Holly off into the corner with the table. Sylvan lifts Holly up looking to throw him through the table quickly but Holly is quick to reverse and he grabs Sylvan. Holly waists no time as he lifts Sylvan quickly into the air before bringing the Ambassador of Quebec crashing through the table with an Alabama Slam! The fans cheer Holly as he throws an arm over Sylvan as that is all the momentum that he has right now. One…Two…Three!!!
Winner: Hardcore Holly
We cut over to ringside to the commentating team.
Michael Cole: Finally, someone has shut Sylvan up and it took long enough for him to finally be shut up which is the sad thing.
Tazz: Indeed Cole and well, we’ve still got a major match coming our way later tonight, which is our main event!
Michael Cole: Kurt Angle puts the World-Heavyweight title on the line later tonight against two opponents, Edge and Randy Orton!
Tazz: Angle might not walk out of here champion tonight if Edge and Orton have any say with what goes down tonight.
We cut backstage to see Ken Kennedy walking around before he walks into Theodore Long’s office.
Ken Kennedy: Teddy!
Theodore Long: Now who do you think you are just budging right in my office?
Ken Kennedy: Look, I’m Mister Kennedy, the hottest rising star and the man that is changing Friday nights, so don’t get an attitude with me Teddy.
Theodore Long: Continue on playa.
Ken Kennedy: Look I want a United States title shot! I have earned a title shot, not Bobby Lashley, not Matt Hardy, but me!
Theodore Long: Oh is that so playa? Well is that why you were out there earlier tonight trying to help Booker win by cheating playa?
Ken Kennedy: Cheating, it was just friendly competition, friendly competition that saw Bobby Lashley lose in. Now you know it and I know it Teddy, that United States title shot better be heading my way Teddy. I’ve beaten the best here on Smackdown, I’ve done everything necessary and now, I want my title!
Theodore Long: Look playa that’s great and all but if you’re going to want a title shot, you’re going to have to earn it the right way. So I’ll tell you what playa, what I’ll do is next week we’re going to have ourselves two matches. First off, Mr. Kennedy, you will be in action and your opponent is going to be Matt Hardy!
Kennedy smiles and looks at Long laughing.
Ken Kennedy: Matt Hardy huh? Just an…
Theodore Long: And in a rematch since you screwed over Bobby Lashley earlier tonight, Lashley will receive a rematch for the title when he fights Booker T one on one next week! Now how are you feeling that playa?
Ken Kennedy: What, Lashley gets another shot? Teddy, what is up with that? I mean I des…
Long walks over and Kennedy makes his way out of the office, Long shuts the door as we hear Kennedy yelling outside from the office as Long smiles inside his office.
Theodore Long: Holla back playa!
We cut backstage to see Jamie Noble in the lockeroom walking around before we see Kid Kash walks up. Noble looks ready to walk out the room whenever in walks Kid Kash, the man that has been stalking Noble for a few weeks.
Kid Kash: Jamie, how are you doing? I mean, you’ve had a few good victories these past few weeks and well, I want to congratulate you!
Kash smiles rather cockily as he holds his hand out wanting Noble to shake hands with him.
Jamie Noble: Look Kash it’s ni…
Kash suddenly interrupts Noble before speaking.
Kid Kash: Jamie, I don’t want much, hell I don’t even want a title shot! I just want an answer from you; I want to know what you’re going to do about me?
Jamie Noble: Would you please just leave me alone?
Kid Kash: I can’t Jamie, simple yes or no! I need to know what are you are going to do about this offer I’m giving to you. Like I said, I don’t want your Cruiserweight title, I’ve had my shots at that title and I just want to know what you want to do about my offer?
Jamie Noble: I don’t know, I me…
Kid Kash: I need a simple yes or no, come on and tell me.
Noble looks at Kash and thinks about it before he looks back up.
Jamie Noble: I can’t tell you anything right now Kash; I’ve got to think about it. I don’t know what I want to do as far as it goes and really, I don’t need to be stuck in this spot. After all, I already have a duty being the Cruiserweight Champion.
Kid Kash: You know what, I’ll give you a few weeks to think about it, I want you to come back and tell me what you think, and then we’ll see.
Jamie Noble: Ok, now can you leave? I’ve got to get ready to go.
Kid Kash looks to walk off before he stops and tells Noble something real quick.
Kid Kash: Remember this Jamie, I’m not playing. I want an answer as soon as possible; this is the best thing that can happen to you. I’ve waited for months, I’ve fought you and really, this is what you need to do right now, I can tell.
Kash walks off as Noble looks at the ground before he gets back onto his feet and continue packing his bags, looking ready to leave.
Michael Cole: Wow, something interesting right there between Kash and Noble, I’m starting to wonder what’s going on.
Tazz: Seriously, it seems Kash wants Noble to do something but as for right now, we can’t be sure as to what that is.
Michael Cole: It really is getting confusing and hopefully soon, we’ll figure out why Kash is doing what he is doing to Noble.
Tazz: I hope we find out soon, but anyways we’re looking forward to seeing our huge tag match, which is right now.
Brian Kendrick and Paul London vs. The Gymini
Match Overview: Fun tag match to get the tag champions on the card tonight in a match that can put them over against bonafide opponents in the Gymini. Both bigger men try working and wearing down on London and Kendrick but it doesn’t seem to be the answer considering how the Gymini aren’t able to ground London and Kendrick. London and Kendrick continue their constant tagging in and working on Jake Gymini. London leaps off the ropes taking down Jake with a dropkick before Kendrick takes Jesse to the outside with a dropkick of his own. Kendrick follows through by grabbing Jake and delivering the Sliced Bread #2 before London makes his way up to the top and he leaps off the ropes, the 450 Splash connects! London quickly hooks the leg for the cover and that could very well be it! One…Two…Three
Winners: Brian Kendrick and Paul London
We cut out to another black screen, this time before the Vengeance screen comes across and we see the Raw logo come across too.
Narrator: For five years, the battle has been fought and the battle has been waged with major implications on the line.
Images of Jericho winning the Undisputed Championship back at Vengeance 2001 are shown with Jericho celebrating in the aftermath.
Narrator: For history has been made these nights and friendships broken but one thing seems to remain the same.
Images of Batista fighting Triple H in Hell in a Cell at last year’s Vengeance is shown with Batista coming out victorious with the title.
Narrator: But now, these men have fought their battles and have led themselves down a road that might not turn back.
Images of John Cena are shown with Cena fighting against the odds, overcoming many men shown in these matches that are shown.
Narrator: And with so much on the line, does one actually want to throw it all away, or give it everything it takes.
Images of Shawn Michaels celebrating after his win and hitting key Sweet Chin Music’s and other key moves in his repertoire.
Narrator: And once it all begins, there really happens to be no way out, no chance of not walking out of the battle unscathed.
Images of Triple H nailing people with his sledgehammer and delivering the Pedigree to many other opponents are shown.
Narrator: For this is the night of Vengeance, the night that is dreaded.
Images of Jericho on the Highlight Reel, hosting his show and we cut to see Jericho having the Walls of Jericho locked in on other wrestlers.
Narrator: WWE and Monday Night Raw presents Vengeance live Sunday June 25, 2006 from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
We cut backstage to see Edge walking around before he bumps into Randy Orton.
Edge: Just the man I was looking for, Randy Orton!
Randy Orton: What do you want Edge?
Edge: Look, you’re talking to the Rated R Superstar, the former World-Heavyweight Champion and you aren’t going to talk to me with that tone of voice. I want your respect Randy, and most of all, I want to ask a favor of you right here.
Randy Orton: If thi…
Edge: Just listen Randy. How about both of us team together tonight and we work together, and we take down the champion, Kurt Angle. And after we take down Angle, then it can be just you and me, one on one out there with the World Heavyweight Championship on the line.
Randy Orton: You know what Edge, I like your plan. Just think, Randy Orton, two times World-Heavyweight Champion! I was the youngest World-Heavyweight Champion ever and nothing could be better than winning that title for a second time.
Edge: Well, we’ll talk about that later but as for tonight, let’s just work together and we’ll settle it one on one later on. But if it does come down to one on one, I won’t be afraid to Spear your ass and grab MY title!
Orton looks at Edge and gives a rather cocky smile, Orton cockily laughs too.
Randy Orton: Your title?
Edge: Yeah, it’s my title. I worked my ass off for that belt, I beat five other men to win that Money in the Bank contract at WrestleMania 21! I put my body on the line and I was champion for nearly four months. I was robbed of the title last month, and I am bringing the title back to where it belongs, around the waist of the Rated R Superstar!
Randy Orton: Edge, maybe you don’t realize it but it is my destiny to regain back my World-Heavyweight Championship. I like yourself was robbed of my title whenever Triple H stole it from me, and I won’t ever forget that. And if you try and ruin my night, I’ll drop either you or Angle in that ring with an RKO!
Edge: Ok look, let’s not argue. We’re going to work together tonight and then we’ll settle it after, just remember we are out there to take Angle down first and foremost. And after that, it’s going to be one on one, each man for themselves. Deal?
Randy Orton: Deal.
Edge extends his hand to Orton, which Edge pulls Orton in toward himself and both men stare down one another before walking off.
We cut down to ringside to the commentating team.
Michael Cole: Edge and Randy Orton seem to have somewhat of an alliance tonight but is it going to be able to last at all?
Tazz: After what happened backstage, something is telling me to not count on it happening for too long which I’m sure it won’t.
Michael Cole: We’ll wait and find out but still to come of course is that major Triple Threat match later tonight!
Tazz: It’s going to be huge right Cole but coming up next, a little bit of six man action before our key main event, stay tuned!
Ukliq vs. The Mexicools
Match Overview: Little bit of six-man tag action to further the fact that Finlay, William Regal, and Paul Burchill can’t get along. The Mexicools take advantage of this seeing that their opponents are having troubles as Finlay is yelling at Regal for the tag but Regal can’t get up as he’s in an armbar from Psicosis. Psicosis drags Regal into the corner tagging in Super Crazy. Super Crazy quickly leaps onto the ropes before delivering a dropkick off the top rope. Super Crazy delivers a standing moonsault onto Regal for a two count as Burchill breaks the count to the surprise of the fans. In comes Juventud going after Burchill as Juventud with his momentum sends both men to the outside with a clothesline! Finlay grabs his shillelagh quickly as at the same time, Super Crazy grabs Regal. Finlay comes running at Super Crazy with the shiellagh but Super Crazy ducks and Finlay connects with a shot to Regal. Finlay doesn’t seem too concerned but he gets a double dropkick from Psicosis and Super Crazy sending him to the outside. Psicosis runs and delivers a Plancha to the outside on Burchill and Finlay as Super Crazy leaps off the top rope with a Moonsault! The fans cheer as Super Crazy hooks the leg, One…Two…Three!!!
Winners: The Mexicools
The Mexicools all celebrate as we see Burchill and Finlay down on the outside. Regal is rolling around in pain as he heads to the outside and Finlay is back up too struggling around though. Regal pushes Finlay asking Finlay why he got blasted with the shillelagh to which Finlay responds with a push back. Burchill tries breaking it up but he gets pushed himself and Regal walks over to Finlay and both men start wrestling around the ring, rolling all around. Burchill watches as Regal is on top of Finlay throwing some lefts before Finlay rolls over and gives Regal some rights. Security runs down as Burchill is calling them out and they separate both men from one another. Finlay and Regal are yelling at one another while Burchill is in the middle and he walks out seeming disappointed in both men before we cut over to ringside.
Michael Cole: Wow, it just seems that the Ukliq group continues to implode every time they find themselves being in a match.
Tazz: They can’t get along, it’s simple. They all love to fight and it seems it’s starting to get to their heads for certain.
Michael Cole: I don’t know, we’ll have to see what goes down these next few weeks but it does seem interesting to me.
Tazz: It certainly does but right now, let’s head backstage to see our current World-Heavyweight Champion, Kurt Angle.
We cut backstage to see Kristal Marshall with Kurt Angle.
Kristal Marshall: Hello everybody, I’m the newest Smackdown interviewer Kristal Marshall and right now, I’m standing by with the World-Heavyweight Champion, Kurt Angle! Now Kurt coming up next, you defend your title in a Triple Threat, how are you feeling?
Kurt Angle: Kristal, when you’re an Olympic Gold Medalist like me, you are always in tip-top shape and I mean always! I’m ready for any challenge and tonight is no different. I’ve beaten both Edge and Randy Orton in the Six Pack Challenge, I overcame five men and I showed why I truly am the Wrestling Machine!
Kristal Marshal: Kurt, recently backstage Edge and Randy Orton have agreed to double-team you tonight, what do you think about that?
Kurt Angle: Edge and Randy Orton are no match for the Wrestling Machine. I won this title after working my ass of for it, I had to beat the best to get this title. And Edge plus Randy Orton think they’re going to just come and get the title, that’s not how it works. And that’s why tonight, somebody’s ankle is going to be broken in half, oh it’s true, it’s damn true!
Kristal Marshall: Anything else Kurt?
Kurt Angle: Yes, Kristal. Edge and Orton, tonight your just another stepping stone that I’m going to walk all over. Oh it’s true, and you are both going to be victims of the Ankle Lock, which I have no problem of making both of you tap out! So be prepared because there isn’t going to be a new World-Heavyweight Champion, I’m keeping MY title!
Triple Threat Match
Kurt Angle © vs. Edge vs. Randy Orton
Match Overview: All three men put on a memorable match in the ring with Edge and Orton living through with their promise as they both double team Angle but one thing goes wrong, they aren’t able to keep him down completely.
