Re: Being the booker

Smackdown; Washington; March 10th 2005;

Highlights from last week, as Kurt Angle accepts Goldberg’s challenge, and Heyman’s bombshell, making Bret allow Vince McMahon into the arena tonight…

Opening Video

Pyro

Cole: We are ten days away from the most anticipated event of the year, ten days, from WRESTLEMANIA!!!! The big news tonight, is that Mr. McMahon will be allowed on Smackdown, for the first time since August 19th of last year, and not only that, but tonight, The Rock is back!!! The number one contender is here, and will be action tonight, as he teams up with Kurt Angle to face La Resistance in a two on three handicap match!!!

Tazz: We are cooking tonight on Smackdown Cole!!! I expect an explosive night, with Vince McMahon, Bret Hart, Steve Austin, Brock Lesnar, Goldberg, Kurt Angle, Triple H and The Rock, all under the one roof!!! This entire night, will be a ROCKET BUSTER!!!

Cole: And, also, we will find out the final competitor in the six pack challenge for the Cruiserweight Title in ten days, as Shannon Moore, Ultimo Dragon, Paul London and Billy Kidman fight it out with the winner on his way to the showcase of the immortals…

Tazz: That will be one heck of a contest my friend. Gotta love that cruiserweight action!!!

Cole: A lot more st-

Brock Lesnar’s music hits,

Cole:
Uh, oh. Folks, this is not expected right now. Paul Heyman, and Brock Lesnar, on their way to the ring…

Tazz: I’m pumped for this Cole…

Lesnar and Heyman make their way to the ring, with Heyman. Heyman grabs a microphone, and begins to speak…

Heyman:
Tonight, is a very special night here on Smackdown, and that is because of one man. The one man, who will be in the corner of this man, Brock Lesnar, in just ten days at WrestleMania, and make sure, Steve Austin is gone from the WWE for good. (Takes out a sheet of paper, and begins to read) This man, is the founder of sports entertainment, inheriting the business from his father, and single handedly turned wrestling into Sports Entertainment..

He took his 'regional' business and expanded nationally, buying out smaller territories around the country. Vince ran the company but also continued his announcing duties on WWF Television shows. In March 1985 Vince McMahon presented the WWF's first of many Wrestlemania’s on Closed Circuit TV. Then in March 1987, Vince McMahon promoted the largest event of his career at Wrestlemania III with Hulk Hogan vs. Andre The Giant, making an indoor attendance record, inside the Pontiac Silverdome.

Over the years, Mr. McMahon has taken on, and beaten the federal courts, all his worldwide competition, has been a former Royal Rumble winner, AND, is a former World Champion!!!!

Ladies and Gentlemen, please rise for the one and only, MR. MCMAHON!!!!!



**No chance** plays, and Mr. McMahon makes his way to the ring, with his trademark walk, and is given a tremendous ovation from the crowd, despite him being a heel. He takes a microphone, and then begins to speak with Heyman and Brock…

McMahon:
First, and foremost, let me clear a few things up. Paul, I appreciate you getting Bret to lift the ban over me to appear on Smackdown, but, you made a little mistake when you said that I would be in Brock’s corner at WrestleMania.

You see, I wont be in Brock’s corner for his match against Stone Cold, no, I wont.

Heyman and Lesnar look pissed off, as McMahon continues to talk…

McMahon: I do have a little announcement though, regarding my involvement at WrestleMania……you see, I will be involved in the Lesnar - Austin showdown in ten days, but I wont be in either corner. In fact, I wont even be wearing a suit. Actually, I will be wearing, a T-Shirt, with black and white stripes, that’s right, you are looking at the Special Guest Referee for Austin vs. Lesnar at WRESTLEMANIA!!!

Heyman and Lesnar broadly smile, as the crowd meet the announcement with mixed feelings…

McMahon: You see Paul, you have great ideas, I’ll admit. I mean, getting Vince McMahon in the corner of Brock Lesnar was a stroke of genius, but as in the past, my idea’s are just a little better.

Heyman looks a little annoyed at last comment, knowing it was a dig, as Vince continues to smile.

McMahon: And, I proved that my idea’s outshine yours, as I had an epiphany regarding my role at WrestleMania. If I were on the outside, I wouldn’t be able to do much, but on the inside, right in the middle, I can do what I want, when I want, if I want. And I want to make it clear right now, that the only way the match will end is by my hand, making the decision. Not someone else’s, not someone dropping my hand three times if I’m knocked out, ONLY by my hand, WILLINGLY!!!!

I wont be calling for any silly disqualifications, I wont be counting any one out, this match will only end by pinfall or submission. So Paul, Brock, I guess I should wish you two the be-

Bret Harts music then hits, and the GM makes his way out, to a huge pop. He stands at the top of the ramp, with a mic in hand…

Hart:
Hold on a moment. I apologise if I’m disturbing this little get together between you three, but I just had to voice my opinion, and my opinion is that your announcement Vince….sucks!!! I cant believe that you would just waltz back onto Smackdown, and make yourself the referee for WrestleMania. And Brock, I cant believe you’re gonna allow it. I mean, what if you beat Austin?? Do you really think that people will accept it as a legitimate victory?? Not a chance. Here’s an idea Vince, why don’t you just step aside, and let Steve and Brock go at it, and lets see just who the be-

Vince cuts in…

McMahon: SHUT UP!!!! How dare you Bret. How dare you, waltz around here, like you own the joint. I made you the general manager of Smackdown, and you have abused your power since day one!!! You don’t pay for this show Bret, I do!!! And for the last six months I have been banned from walking into my own show that I have paid for, because of you, you son of a bitch!!!

Hart: Well, Vince, if you don’t like how I do things here on Smackdown, then why don’t you do something about it??

Glass shatters, and Steve Austin makes his way out to the ramp way, mic in hand…

Austin:
Bret, don’t take this the wrong way, but if anybody if gonna be handing out an asswhoopin’ to the SOB in the ring right now, it will be none other than the worlds toughest son of a bitch!!! Vince, you must think I forgot, what you did to me at Judgment Day. You stand there, bitching and moaning, complaining that you haven’t been on Smackdown for six months…hell Vince, try near a damn year!!! You have absolutely no idea what I have been through since last May, but I promise you son, in a few moments I’m gonna walk that aisle, and I’m gonna stomp a mudhole in Heyman’s ass, I’m gonna whoop that sorry little bastard Lesnar’s ass, and then Vince, if you haven’t already crapped your pants by then, I’m coming for you. I’ll shove my foot, so far up your ass, you’ll end up in Detroit ten days early for WrestleMania.

So……if you want Stone Cold Steve Austin to open a can of whoop ass on the three amigo’s in the ring…gimme a hell yeah!!!

Crowd: Hell yeah!!!!

Austin then drops the mic, and makes his way down the aisle, then walks around the ringside area, grabs a chair, and gets into the ring, puts down Lesnar with a chair shot, then clotheslines Vince, and knocks down Heyman with a right hand. Austin then stomps Heyman out of the ring, and picks up Vince, and begins to wail on him in the corner, until, Lesnar shoots up, gets the chair, and smashes it across the back of Austin, then delivers the F5 on him.

Lesnar and McMahon, along with Heyman then stand over Austin, as he roll into the commercials…

Commercial

Back to ringside with Tazz and Cole;

Cole:
What an impact made my Vince McMahon, Tazz. The boss is back on Smackdown, and even before the first commercial break, he has created chaos.

Tazz: If that is a taster for WrestleMania, I cannot wait Cole!!!

Cole: It is the most emotionally charged match in the history of WrestleMania, and it all goes down in ten days time, under the bright lights of Ford Field. Also, this past Monday Night on Raw, we found out that at WrestleMania, there will be a twenty man battle royal, featuring nine guys from RAW, nine from Smackdown, and two special guest legends!!

Tazz: Oh yeah!!! I dig that idea Cole!!!

Cole: And folks, so far, from the Smackdown side, in the match will be, Test, Scott Steiner, Matt Hardy, Kanyon and Hurricane. Two more spots will be filled tonight, when William Regal & Lance Storm face Rikishi and Scotty Too Hotty, as the winners will be headed to the battle royal!!!

Backstage, Heyman, Lesnar and McMahon walk around backstage, all carrying a can of beer, then they bump into Triple H…

McMahon:
Well, well, well. If it isn’t my former son in law. Our esteemed WWE Champion, Triple H.

Triple H: Vince. Its good to have you back. You look great by the way.

McMahon: What do you want?? I know you’re after something.

Triple H: (Smiles) You know me too well. Well, I thought we could maybe help each other. Its been a while since there was a match involving a special guest referee around here, and I thought you might want to refresh peoples memory on it. So…how about you let me be the special guest referee in the three on two handicap match tonight, featuring The Rock. I mean, I haven’t had much to do lately, so why not??

McMahon: You know, I like that idea. Hunter, you’ve got yourself a deal. But you better call it down the middle.

(Both Vince and HHH look serious at each other, then slowly smile and laugh out loud)

Triple H: That’s funny Vince. By the way, loved what you guys did to Austin later. That Son of a bitch had it coming. Good luck guys.

HHH and Vince then walk off in separate directions, but Brock stands in front of HHH, and the two lock eyes. Brock then looks at the title belt, and back at HHH again. He then walks off, leaving HHH looking a little worried.

1st Match:

Shelton Benjamin w/Charlie Haas vs. Chris Harris w/James Storm

The two men go back and forth, with both partners getting involved. Benjamin gets the win, thanks to Haas, who distracts Harris, and Benjamin gets the roll up, 1...2...3!!! Shelton wins it.

Winner: Shelton Benjamin

TWGTT quickly scarper up the ramp, laughing at their opponents, as AMW are irate. This now makes it one win apiece in singles competition between the two teams, after last weeks one on one match between Storm and Haas.

We cut backstage, where we see Billy Gunn, The Basham’s, La Resistance, Kanyon, Matt Hardy, APA, Funaki and Hardcore Holly, chatting about the twenty man battle royal at WrestleMania. It is hard to make out what is being said, as a lot of them are talking at the same time, but Kanyon starts a small scuffle, as he riles up some of them, gloating that they aren’t in the match, but he is. The fight continues, as we cut back to ringside…

Cole:
Well, Kanyon there, being true Kanyon. The guy just doesn’t know when to shut up.

Tazz: And why shouldn’t he be in peoples faces?? He’s goin’ to Wrestlemania baby!!!

Commercial

2nd Match: Winning team has place in 20 Man Battle Royal @ WM;

Rikishi & Scotty vs. William Regal & Lance Storm

Short, quick match, with Regal and Storm winning, surprisingly though, they win it cleanly, by submission on Scotty.

Winners: William Regal & Lance Storm

Backstage we see cut to Vince McMahon’s private room, where he is sitting, along with Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar. The trio sit back watching on the television, smiling together, drinking Austin’s beer, from his beer case. We then cut back to ringside again…

Cole:
Those three men make me sick Tazz!! They are so smug, drinking Austin’s beer, sharing a laugh, because they know at Wrestlemania, they hold all the advantages right now. Man, it makes me sick!!!

Tazz: Give over Cole. Austin got what he deserved tonight. You cant expect him not to get beat up, when he’s trying to fight three people.

Cole: Get your head out of McMahon’s ass!!! He’s not gonna give you a pay rise!!!

Tazz: I don’t need one. I get paid twice as much as you do. I have talent Cole!!!

Cole: Shut up Tazz!!!

Backstage, Triple H, wearing his referee’s shirt, bumps in Dupree, Grenier, and Conway.

HHH:
I’m glad I seen you guys. I just want to clear a few things up, ok. Now tonight, in your match against Rock and Angle, I want you to make sure that you focus on The Rock, you got me. Forget Angle. Just concentrate on busting up The Rock. Do what you want, because quite frankly, I’m feeling a little lenient, if you know what I mean.

Dupree: I think we understand. Lets just be glad, that finally, there is a competent referee around here huh.

Conway: Exactly. I like your style Triple H. I doubt you’ll be disappointed with us tonight.

Grenier: But just so we know. You still want us to leave some of The Rock for you to finish off at WrestleMania??

HHH: You know, it wouldn’t be such a big loss if Rock didn’t make it to Mania. Whatever happens, happens…

All four men smile to each other, as the camera’s fade away…

WrestleMania Relived;

This week, Wrestlemania XX, from MSG last year;

Steve Austin defeats Vince McMahon, despite interference from Bret Hart; Triple H defeats Mick Foley by knockout in an I Quit match, and Brock Lesnar retains the WWE Championship, beating Goldberg with a Shooting Star Press.

We then cut to Kurt Angle, walking into his locker room. He walks in, and then stands almost in shock. He looks furious, as the camera moves into the room, and we see Goldberg sitting on a chair, smiling at Angle.

Angle: What the hell do you want in here??

Goldberg: Ahhhh, Kurt, Kurt, Kurt. You don’t even realise do you. In ten days, you are facing me at WrestleMania. You really think you have a chance. I’m telling you right now, you don’t.

Angle: Get the hell out.

Goldberg: No. No, I wont. Kurt, you really think that you stand a chance of beating me in Ford Field. You think you’ll make me tap out. Kurt, I understand that you should be a little confident going into WrestleMania. I mean, you think you’re facing the same Goldberg that you faced at SummerSlam, when I took the WWE Title from you, that same Goldberg that you almost beat at SummerSlam. Let me tell you this right now, you’re not.

I’m a totally different animal now. I’m not the same Bill Goldberg that you eliminated from the Chamber at Survivor Series, then beat a few days later on Smackdown. I’m a new Goldberg. I’m the Goldberg, that will rip you apart, and put you out of the business, for good.

Angle: Don’t think you can get into my head Bill. I don’t fear you, I don’t fear anybody. You say I’m facing a different Goldberg from SummerSlam?? A different Goldberg from November?? Well, that may be the case, but you my friend, are facing a new Kurt Angle!!!

You’re facing the new Kurt Angle, who wont be taking any crap, and you will see this new Kurt Angle at WrestleMania, and you will TAP OUT!!! Look at me when I say this…I will lock you in the Anklelock, and I promise, I wont let go, until either you tap out, or until I hear your ankle snap!!!

Goldberg gets up from the chair, and goes head to head with Angle, then growls, and walks out of the room.

Back to ringside with Tazz and Cole;

Cole:
I remember last years WrestleMania, and boy it was a spectacle. But in ten days, I think it could well be the greatest WrestleMania of all time.

Tazz: In my opinion, it will be the biggest event of all time. The stage is set, but who will rise to the occasion??

Cole: The card looks to be pretty much set folks. Cena vs. Orton, in the Youngest WrestleMania main event of all time, Undertaker vs. HBK, Jericho vs. Kane, Triple Threat for the Women’s Championship, and Edge vs. Christian for the Intercontinental Title, lets also not forget the Battle Royal, featuring both brands, and some special guest legends.

Tazz: Well, that sounds good, but what about this from Smackdown, Eddie Guerrero vs. Chris Benoit, AMW vs. The Worlds Greatest Tag Team, Kurt Angle vs. Goldberg, Triple H vs. The Rock, and of course, who can forget, Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Brock Lesnar, Bret in Austin’s corner, and Heyman in Lesnar’s, with Mr. McMahon right in the middle.

Cole: I get goosebumps just thinking about it Tazz. Steve Austin will need to think of a way around McMahon being the referee, but I’m sure he will. Also Tazz, you forgot to mention, the Cruiserweight Title, because up next, we find out the final competitor in the six pack challenge for WrestleMania!!!

Tazz: I’m digging that Cole!!!

Commercial

3rd Match: Winner gets final spot in 6 pack Cruiserweight Championship Match @WM XXI:

Shannon Moore vs. Billy Kidman vs. Ultimo Dragon vs. Paul London

Fast paced match, some really crazy moves in there. All four men hit their signature spots, then Kidman hit’s the BK Bomb on Moore, but he is dropkicked out of the ring by Ultimo, who then hit’s a reverse DDT on Moore, goes for a cover, but London hit’s the 450 splash on both, breaking the count, then covers Moore, 1...2...3!!! London is going to WrestleMania!!!

Winner: Paul London

Paul London celebrates in the ring, getting a good ovation. He is congratulated by all three opponents, as he is on his way for a shot at WM!!!

Interview with The Rock;

Josh: Rock, welcome back to Smackdown. Three weeks ago tonight, you were savagely atta-

The Rock: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, WOAH!!! Josh Matthews!!! Don’t make this interview sound like a funeral!!! it’s a time for celebration, because FINALLY….THE ROCK HAAAAASSS COME BACK….TO WASHINGTON D.C!!!!! And finally, The Rock has come back to Smackdown. You know, for the last few weeks, I’ve been hurt, and in pain, but the thing which has caused me the most pain, is the screeching in The Rocks ears, caused by one man’s jibbering, and that man, is Triple H. Triple H, you run your mouth, saying that I should stay in the movies, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, awwwwww who gives a crap what Triple H has to say.

Josh: Well, Rock, you loo-

Rock grabs Josh’s microphone, and then stares at him almost in shock.

The Rock:
Did The Rock ask you to speak?? Or did you just have the audacity to interrupt The Rock, halfway through a statement?? In fact, The Rock is suffering from some memory loss. What is your name??

Josh goes to speak…

The Rock:
IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOUR NAME IS!!!!!!!! You see, it just doesn’t matter. Nothing matters. No one cares what Triple H has to say, or what you have to say, or what Michael Cole has to say, or even what I have to say.

The only thing that matters, is that in ten days, you realise, Triple H realises, Michael Cole realises, J.R realises, what everybody realises, is that The Rock, is going to WressssssstleManiaaaaa, and The Rock is gonna whoop ass, and guaran-damn-teeees, that The Rock will make history, and become a Ten time, World Champion. Iffffffff ya smmmmmm-

Triple H enters and interrupts

Triple H:
Hold on just a second Hollywood. What the hell are you smokin?? Rock, five years ago, you were good, in fact you were great, you were arguably the best in the business. But time passes, and yours has passed a long time ago. I’m on top now, and this WWE Championship proves it.

You know it as well as I do. You just don’t have the tools to go anymore, not with someone like me anyway. If you had the balls, you would have came into this arena tonight, and you would have came storming in looking for me, but you didn’t. Why?? Cause you don’t have the passion. If you did, you would have smacked me in the mouth right here already. Nobody takes a beating like you did, and doesn’t come for revenge. I’m standing here Rock. Gimme your best shot.

The Rock: Triple H….know your role….and SHUT your damn mouth!!!! The Rock sees that you are the referee for The Rocks match tonight, and The Rock wants to tell you this. If you e-

Triple H: What are you talkin’ about?? Did you just ignore my challenge?? You, you really are scared, aren’t ya?? Hollywood made you soft. (laughs)

The Rock: No, no, no, no, no. The Rock has called your bluff Triple H. You want The Rock to smack your lips right now?? Forget it. The Rock doesn’t intend on giving you what you want, and you want The Rock to hit you?? Nah. You don’t want me to take the WWE Championship?? I will. The Rock isn’t here to play the game, The Rock is here to do what he does best, and that, is LAYETH THE SMACKETH DOWN ON ALL YOUR CANDYASSESS!!! Tonight, The Rock will prove to you Triple H, that I still have the passion, and that I am, the NEXT WWE Champion!!!

HHH then grabs Rock’s microphone and throws it to the ground, and they stand toe to toe, then Rock smiles at HHH and walks off…

Commercial

4th Match:

Hurricane vs. Kanyon

Nice quick paced contest, with both men getting equal offence. Kanyon starts to showboat, then sees a group of superstars (Holly, Hardy, Gunn, Test & Steiner), making their way to the ring. Event though they are a mix of faces and heel’s they all work together to beat up Kanyon, after his comments earlier, ending the match in a DQ.

Winner: Kanyon

The superstars all hit their finishing moves on Kanyon, leaving him in a crumpled up mess.

Commercial

RAW Rebound:

- Christian turns on Edge, and Foley announces the match between the two at WM

- Evolution attack John Cena, in his home state of Masschusets.

- Announcement of Triple Threat for Women’s Championship @ WM

- Kane still carrying around, tied up, but Jericho frees her, but still ends up getting a beating for it.

Cole: Back on Smackdown, just ten days away from the biggest event of the year, WrestleMania. Tazz, we have discussed a lot concerning WrestleMania already tonight, but there is still some more…

Tazz: That’s right. We now know that Paul London will compete for the Cruiserweight Championship in the six pack challenge, and here is more news. Already, Mick Foley, Yokozuna, Iron Shiek, Arn Anderson, Lou Albano and Bruno Sammartino have been confirmed to be inducted in the Hall of Fame at WrestleMania, but now, we have also been told that the second person inducted in the celebrity wing, will be none other than Lawrence Taylor, who of course made WrestleMania history ten years ago, beating Bam Bam at the showcase of the immortals!!!

Cole: Not only LT has been added, but a WWE legend, The Million Dollar man, Ted DiBiase will be inducted!!! And the final two in the Hall of Fame for 2005, will be none other than the Road Warriors!!!

Tazz: Oh boy. DiBiase, and LOD, the late great Hawk, and his partner, Animal. Animal will represent both men, in ten days at Ford Field!!!

Cole: And next week, on Smackdown, what a line up we have. Six man tag, as Tajiri, Paul London and Rey Mysterio face Chavo Guerrero, Jamie Noble and Akio, in a taster for the six pack match at WrestleMania!!! Also, we will be conducting a sit down interview with Latino Heat, the United States Champion, Eddie Guerrero, and his opponent for WrestleMania, Chris Benoit!!!

Tazz: Expect fireworks there Cole. Those two men have so much history, that it could be a very explosive interview!!!

Cole: Still to come, our main event, Kurt Angle and The Rock, 2 on 3, against La Resistance, with Triple H as the referee!!!

Main Event: 2 on 3 Handicap Match;

The Rock & Kurt Angle vs. La Resistance

Special Guest Referee; Triple H

Nice quick paced contest, with a lot of tags between both teams. Triple H tries to rile up The Rock, who ignores The Game. Rock hit’s a Rock Bottom on Grenier, but HHH refuses to count, leading to The Rock losing it, and attacking The Game. They fight on the outside, leaving Angle on his own, but he shows his tenacity, and overcomes all three men, racking their brains with chair shots. He then locks in the Anklelock on Dupree, who instantly taps out, but then Goldberg runs to the ring, to try and attack Angle, but Kurt sees him coming, and hits an arm drag, then the Angle Slam, before knocking him out with a chair!!

Meanwhile, HHH and The Rock continue to fight, but The Rock comes out on top, and nails a Rock Bottom through the table.

Winner: No Contest

The Rock and Kurt Angle stand in the ring, shake hands, then celebrate to the crowd, as the show goes off the air……

Re: Being the booker

Great SD, brilliant Triple H/Rock build up, also great heat on Kanyon.

Not as good as last week, but still fantastic. Austin v Lesnar was slipped aside to hype the WWE Title match, and rightly so, however i thought Austin could have come back and made some sort of attempted attack later in the night. But, who am i?

Tag Title fued keeps building, which is great to see. Shame Tajiri wasn't on teh show, but teh 2 man tag next week will be interesting

9/10 for the show, WM will be completely insane.

Re: Being the booker

Awesome Smackdown! Love the way the Austin-Lesnar match is building up! Also the Goldberg-Angle match and the WWE Title match will be great also. London is the last into the 6 pack challenge which has just become even greater!! The Hall of Fame is good with all the inductees truelly deserving it. No Eddie or Beniot has sloped down the rivalry but I'm sure it can be blown up to the highest it's been next week!

Read the rules.

Re: Being the booker

Wow!

The opening Promo with Paul Heyman was delivered excelently so far as to the point that I thought it was copied and pasted.....

McMahon the Special Guest Referee, now that's a twist in the tale....that has opened things WIDE open to the point where I can see an Austin heel turn, or a full McMahon face turn. I am pretty sure that Austin will win this one, but also that Bret Hart will make a heel turn...I can smell a double cross far away and if there is one that has it written over it, it is this match....if I'm wrong though....

The stand off between Lesnar/HHH gives me some ideas of a possible feud after WM....this leads me to think that HHH will walk out with the Title at WM....

Kanyon starting beef.....LOL

I liked the backstage stuff with HHH/Rock and especially the last match, it's weird seeing Kurt as a fully fledged face, something which I'm not a fan of, as I enjoy Kurt as that cocky heel but can get used to.....

All in all, truely a spectacle and I for one cannot wait for WrestleMania....where Mortals will definately become....Legends

I have to agree, with this twist to plot I am now uncertain who will turn but i still feel someone will.

Re: Being the booker

AWESOME SHOW!!

The opening segment was just great, well written and like everyone said, there has to be a turn somewhere, maybe two

Rock/HHH segment was great as well. I could almost hear The Rock

Six Pack challenge will be awesome with London in there too!

Angle/Goldberg segment was great as well with mano e mano talk!

The Hall of Fame inductees are great, truly deserving ones!

Benoit/Eddie segment next week will be explosive no doubt

This will be the greatest WM of all time, will be better than all WM put together!

Word "Mother Freaking" Life!!

WWE Smackdown

Negatives
Not typing out names in full.

Positives
-The opening segment. It was well written and something I can imagine Paul Heyman saying. Vince announcing himself as the special referee in the Steve Austin/Brock Lesnar match at Wrestlemania was a great twist, and the writing of Austin's character was brilliant.
-The confrontation between Triple H and Brock Lesnar, I can see a post Wrestlemania feud.
-Paul London getting the final spot in the Cruiserweight Title match at Wrestlemania, shame that the Cruiserweights in thaat match (on Smackdown) won't be in the match at Wrestlemania though.
-The Rock was in character, and a great interview. Shame the interview couldn't be with Jonathan Coachman or Kevin Kelly.
-Nice to see some other greats like Yokozuna, Bruno Sammartino, Lou Albano, Arn Anderson, Hawk, Animal, Ted DiBiase, Mick Foley and the Iron Shiek being inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Overall: A great edition of Smackdown and I can't wait for Raw. Although, more important than that is WRESTLEMANIA. It is looking fantastic, and I bet it will be.

Re: Being the booker

RAW; March 14th 2005; Cleveland:

Opening Video

Pyro

J.R:
The excitement has reached fever pitch, as the showcase of the immortals closes in. Tonight, on this final Raw before WrestleMania, who will gain the upper hand on their opponents at this Sundays event??

King: It almost seems unreal J.R. We have talked about WrestleMania for MONTHS, but tonight, we hit our final road, oh my!!!!

J.R: We know that all the major players are under this roof tonight King, so I would expect a real epic show tonight!!!

**H-B-K hits, and we see the cocky, Shawn Michaels strut to the ring, with a barrage of insults aimed at him, as he shrugs off all the heat. He grabs a mic, and poses in the ring.**

J.R: And right now, we are looking at Shawn Michaels, who is set to face the Deadman this Sunday. He has been running from him since the Royal Rumble in January, but in six days time, he will have to face his fears, and pay the price!!!

**HBK then begins to speak**

Michaels:
Ladies and Germs, please show some appreciation for the HEART-BREAK-KID!!!

Crowd boo’s.

Michaels:
(Smiles) Yeah, yeah. You know, The Undertaker has been running from good old HBK now for some time, but this Sunday, I’ll finally get my hands on the dead ass of his, cause he’ll have no where to run, and nowhere, to hide.

**J.R: Michaels is obviously delusional, as well as an asshole. It’s been him running from the Phenom!!!**

Michaels:
You see, not many people realise this, but The Undertaker has NEVER beaten me, one on one. I have his number. And his WrestleMania unbeaten record number, is up. Because I said it two weeks ago, and I’ll say it tonight, You’ve never faced anyone quite like the Showstopper, quite like me!!!

And believe me Deadman, you never will.

**GONG**

**GONG**

**GONG**

**GONG**

**We see Undertaker appear on the titan tron, along with Paul Bearer**

Bearer:
Shawn Michaels……ha ha ha ha ha. You really think that you will defeat MY Undertaker??? Ever since the Royal Rumble, your sorry career has been on life support…and at WrestleMania…my Undertaker will pull the plug on your career, and your life support will slowly filter out, and die!!!!

Undertaker: Shawn….right now, you are the living dead. In six days, you will the deceased, and I will make sure, that you…..rest……in……peace.

(Takers eyes roll into the back of his head, and the camera closes in on his eyes, then the picture on the tron turns into a video. It shows quick clips of all of Takers past WM matches, with flashing images of people being hanged, and graves being dug, then a lightning bolt strikes, and the Undertaker symbol appears at the entrance way, with a lifelike HBK doll dangling from it.

HBK is in a state of shock, and immediately rolls out of the ring, and runs through the crowd)

Commercial

We come back, to the parking lot, and see Michaels packing up his rental car, then jumping in and speeding off.

J.R: It looks to me, that Shawn Michaels has been a little spooked out by the Deadman. But this Sunday he has nowhere to run, and nowhere to hide!!! But right now, it’s some eight man tag action, as eight of the nine Raw competitors in the battle royal this Sunday, battle it out.

King: I love eight man tag matches J.R!!!!

1st Match: 8 Man Tag Match:

BookDust, R.V.D, Sting vs. Matt Morgan, Rhyno, Raven, Nowinski

Back and forth match, pretty quick for an eight man, but as the match starts to get going, A-Train runs in and attacks all eight men, leaving all of them down and out, as A-Train goes into this Sunday with the advantage over his fellow Raw competitors.

Winner: No Contest

Interview with Chris Jericho…

Grisham:
Chris Jericho, in six days, you face the big red monster, Kane, one on one at the Granddaddy of them all, WrestleMania. This match has been brewing for weeks, and escalated after Kane abducted Trish Stratus. Last week you freed Trish from Kane, but suffered a tremendous beating afterwards. How do you plan on defeating Kane this Sunday??

Jericho: Todd, this Sunday is WrestleMania. A night where dreams come true, and so on and so on. But as far as I’m concerned this Sunday is bigger than WrestleMania, because its not about the event for me. Its about very personal issues. I’m facing a man that by all rights should be locked up in an asylum. And it doesn’t matter that he is nearly a foot taller than me, and outweighs me by around a hundred pounds, because its all about heart, and redemption. Revenge will be sweet, because this Sunday, I will beat Kane, for me, and Trish, by ANY means necessary!!!

Grisham: Well, Chris. Another question I’d like to ask is, do you know the whereabouts of Trish?? She hasn’t been seen tonight at the arena.

Jericho: Yeah, Trish is at home. I talked with Trish a lot over the last week, and I convinced her to stay there this week, as a precaution. If it were up to me, I’d have made her stay at home for WrestleMania too, but Trish wouldn’t miss it for the world, when I defeat Kane, and get that sick bastard out of her life, and mine for good!!!!

Backstage with the Brotherhood. Theodore Long is on the phone with someone, while Orlando Jordan and Rodney Mack are psyching up Jazz.

Mack:
Who’s gonna be the next Women’s Champion!!!???

Jazz: ME!!!

Orlando: Who’s is the number one women’s wrestler in the world!!!???

Jazz: ME!!!

Mack: Who’s gonna stand in your way!!!???

Jazz: NO ONE!!!!!

Theodore Long: That’s right, holla, holla, holla!!! Finally, this Sunday, we wont be held down by the man!!! They cant stop true greatness like baby girl here. Victoria may be pretty, and Shaniqua may be a man, but Jazz, is the next Women’s Champion!!!

Jazz: Oh yeah, believe dat!!!

The Brotherhood then all high five each other, as the camera fades.

We then see the arrival of Christian to the arena, with the Intercontinental Title, and a huge smirk…

Commercial

2nd Match:

Chris Jerichovs. Mideon (One night appearance - like Viscera and Gangrel recently on WWE)

Jericho is on top form, dismantling Mideon completely, picking up a quick victory with the Walls of Jericho.

Winner: Chris Jericho

Jericho has his hand raised, but then, from behind, Kane nails Y2J with a stiff clothesline to the back, then stomps on him, and hit’s a big boot, before nailing a Chokeslam on Jericho, leaving him in a crumpled mess, heading into WM this Sunday.

WrestleMania Relived:

This week, WrestleMania IV from Trump Plaza;

Bad News Brown beat Bret Hart in a battle royal, Demolition become the New Tag Team Champions, and Randy Savage wins a tournament to be crowned the NEW WWF World Champion, beating Ted DiBiase in the final.

Back to J.R and King…

J.R:
We said this would be a wild ride here tonight, but this has been sensational. A-Train left his mark going into the Battle Royal this Sunday, and Chris Jericho was absolutely battered by Kane. Not to forget, the creepy situation earlier between Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker!!!

King: And so close to WrestleMania too J.R!! Its totally breaking down here on RAW!!! I don’t even want to imagine what else will go down.

Backstage, we go into the Evolution locker room, with the trio drinking champagne.

Flair:
Man, can you believe that WrestleMania is just six days away?? Randy, your night is coming up fast. Because this WrestleMania, is the Wrestlemania, where Randy Orton truly arrives.

Batista: Exactly. it’s a pity you didn’t have a little stiffer competition though, isn’t it?? I mean, John Cena is hardly gonna give you a run for your money, is he??

Orton: Guys, I think we’ve underestimated him. John Cena, is for real. (Looks a little worried, then tries to shrug it off) But, I mean, he’s not Randy Orton. He’s not the World Heavyweight Champion. I am, and still will be, this Sunday. But tonight, I’m calling him out.

Flair: ARE YOU CRAZY!!!!???? Six days from the biggest match of your life, and your calling that punk out??

Batista: Don’t do it Randy. You don’t need it. Just sit here, take it easy, and save yourself for Mania.

Orton: Well, I appreciate your thoughts guys, but this is something I’ve just gotta do. I’m not goin out for a fight. I want to look him in his eyes, and see if he is ready, and if he means business. Nothing more, nothing less.

Batista and Flair look to one another, and both shake their heads, in disappointment.

Back to ringside…

J.R:
Well King, I wasn’t expecting that at all.

King: That was strange J.R. Randy Orton wants to go face to face with John Cena?? A week before WrestleMania?? A weeks after he attacked him in his hometown??

J.R: Something seems fishy on this one King. I smell a set up.

**Christian‘s new music, “Just Close your eyes” plays into the arena, and the Intercontinental Champion makes his way to the ring, mic in hand already.**

Christian:
What’s up Cleveland!!!!

Crowd Boo’s.

Christian:
Well, tonight, we are in Peep City USA, the home of all my fans, and I Captain Charisma, salute you all!!! But as much as I’d like to come out here and big up all my peeps, that’s not what I’m here for. I want to address the situation with my brother, regarding this Sunday, and this Intercontinental Championship!!!

You see, two weeks ago, not only did I outsmart Edge, but I outsmarted the entire locker room. I made everyone believe that I was defending the Intercontinental Championship out of the goodness of my heart. Gimme a break.

Why would I ever want to do anything for my ungrateful brother?? He has never appreciated me, and has always treated me as number two. Well not anymore!!!

In fact, right now, I’d like to show some footage, of me screwing over Edge last week (laughs) really, you’ll all love this… (Footage plays of Christian attacking Edge last week, after saying he would lie down for Edge to take the title back)

Edge, this Sunday, its three stages of hell. One on One, when I prove I can outwrestle you. Strap Match, when I whip you like a government mule, and then our speciality…well, MY speciality….TABLES, LADDERS, AND CHAIRS!!!!

You see, I was the main player in TLC. I was the one that carried Edge and Christian to all our wins, but it was always Edge and Christian….never Christian and Edge.

This Sunday, it wont be Edge and Christian, it wont even be Christian and Edge, it will be just Christian.

Edge’s music plays, and we see the former Intercontinental Champion make his way onto the ramp, mic in hand.

Edge:
(Smiles) You know Christian, it has just occurred to me that you….are an ass. You say TLC is YOUR match?? I wouldn’t. I’d say it was our match, The Hardyz match, and The Dudleyz match. All six of us made the match what it was, but this Sunday, its just about you and I.

You like to show footage of your best TLC moments?? Well, here some other footage that maybe you should show, really, it brings out the bad ass in you, roll the tape…(Footage plays of Christian on the phone to his Grandma, being told off about not flushing the toilet after using it, and picking his nose. While he listens, he is picking his nose. The crowd has a good laugh over the footage)

That’s a messy situation eh?? You could maybe say, you pickyour moments??

Christian: Look Edge, you want to make this all out to be a joke?? The only joke will be this Sunday when I beat you two straight falls!!!

Edge:Let me tell you, bro, this Sunday, is no laughing matter. I cant wait to get my hands around your scrawny little neck, cause I will pulverise you, and I will decimate you, but most of all, I will take back what is rightfully mine!!!

Christian: Well, why don’t you give me a little preview of what’s to come?? You got the guts to come down here right here right now to face me??

Edge:Oh, I’m already there!!!

Edge drops the mic, and sprints down to the ring, but as soon as he slides in, Christian stomps away at him. He picks up Edge and whips him off the ropes, but as Edge comes back off, he ducks a clothesline, then nails the Spear!!!!!

Edge then pounds away at Christian, relentlessly, until officials run down and pull him away, as we cut to a commercial…

Commercial

3rd Match: Triple Threat, 9 Person Tag;

The Brotherhood vs. Victoria & The Dudley Boyz vs. Shaniqua, Cade & Jindrak

Pretty long, decent match, with the three women itching to get at one another, and each time they did, things went totally crazy. Eventually, the match broke down into utter chaos, and Shaniqua got the win, after clocking Victoria with the title belt, and booting Jazz off the apron.

Winner: Shaniqua, Garrison Cade & Mark Jindrak

Smackdown Rebound:

- Vince returning, and naming himself special guest referee for the Austin - Lesnar match at WM.

- Paul London wins a 4 Way to get the last place in the Six Pack for the CW title.

- HHH - Rock showdown

- Brawl at the end of the show, with Rock and Angle on top, getting the upper hand on HHH and Goldberg.

WrestleMania promo

We then cut to J.R and King…

J.R:
It is just six days away, and we have the final card. Firstly from Raw, its Edge challenging his brother Christian, for the Intercontinental Championship, Three Stages of Hell. One on One, Strap Match, and if necessary, TLC!!!

King: The bad blood has been brewing for weeks J.R. Edge and Christian weren’t on the same page for weeks, then Edge became the Intercontinental Champion, and things broke down into chaos between them. Christian outsmarted the entire world two weeks ago, and I think he’ll do it again this Sunday!!!

J.R: Chris Jericho vs. Kane!!!! Can Jericho overcome the big red monster, and gain revenge for the hell he has put Trish through over the last month??

King: No way. Kane is not only an unstoppable force, but he is an immoveable object!!! Kane will destroy Jericho, then he and Trish can live happily ever after!!!

J.R: It’s a triple threat match for the Women’s Championship!!! Shaniqua vs. Jazz vs. Victoria!!! Finally these three women will be in the same ring at the same time for the title!!! The undefeated champion doesn’t have to be involved in the decision, and that title is in major jeopardy.

King: This situation has been foggy for weeks J.R. For three straight weeks, Women’s matches all ended in no contest, two title matches and a number one contenders match, but all three have the chance to prove they are number one!!!

J.R: Shawn Michaels takes on the Deadman, King!!!

King: Oh my!!! I don’t know where this is gonna go. Can Undertaker hold onto his unbeaten record at Wrestlemania?? It stands at 12-0, but this Sunday, HBK aims to end it once and for all!!!

J.R: Then, the Main Event, The Youngest WrestleMania main event of all time, as two men in their mid twenties battle for the richest prize in the game!!! Randy Orton, faces the Royal Rumble winner, John Cena!!!

King: This has been debated since the Rumble. Can Orton prove he is a worthy champion?? Or will Cena prove that he belongs?? My money goes with Orton. He has the championship advantage, he has Evolution, and he has more talent!!!

J.R: That sounds great right King?? Well, that’s just RAW!!! Here with the Smackdown matches, its Tazz and Michael Cole in the WWE Studios!!!

Cole: Thanks J.R, well partner, its almost here. Wrestlemania is almost set to dawn!!!

Tazz: We are so pumped, sorry to tell you guys at Raw, but Smackdown totally whoops you in terms of matches!!!

Cole: I agree, firstly, how about six pack action for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship?? Tajiri faces a huge uphill struggle, taking on the man who pinned him two weeks ago, Jamie Noble, the former champion, Chavo, Rey Mysterio, Akio, and the winner of last weeks fatal four way, Paul London!!!

Tazz: That will be one heck of a contest my friend. Gotta love that cruiserweight action, but Tajiri just cant overcome those odds, and my money has gotta go with the outsider, Paul London to take the gold.

Cole: The old time friends face off for the United States Championship, Eddie Guerrero takes on Chris Benoit!!!

Tazz: That will be off the hook Cole!!! My type of wrestling, for the U.S Title!!! And don’t forget, this week on Smackdown, the two will have a sit down interview, which I would highly recommend you see, it will be extremely personal.

Cole: For sure Tazz. Lets not forget, Kurt Angle vs. Goldberg!!! This feud has ran since the summer, it has been full of twists and turns, but finally ends this Sunday!!!

Tazz: So intense, so personal. Who will come out of this epic feud, as the better man?? My pick, has to be Goldberg!!! The guy has been a machine since December, and not even the Olympic Hero can stop him!!!

Cole: Triple H vs. The Rock for the WWE Championship!!!

Tazz: Goodness me. That match will be so heated, its unreal. The Rock and The Game go so far back, you could write a book on their feud!!! You cannot miss that!!!

Cole: And, the WWE Tag team Championships are on the line, as America’s Most Wanted face Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin

Tazz: These two teams are so evenly matched, it has shown over the last four weeks, and this has to be one of the most closest matches to call for this Sunday!!!

Cole: But then, it’s the most talked about match in perhaps the twenty year history of WrestleMania….Stone Cold Steve Austin, with Bret Hart in his corner, taking on Brock Lesnar with Paul Heyman, and Vince McMahon as the special guest referee. Boy oh boy, what a build up for an epic showdown!!!

Tazz: It has been a roller coaster ride over the last five weeks with these guys. But this is the ultimate match at this years Wrestlemania, and I think even the Raw guys will have to agree with that.

Cole: It all goes down this Sunday, March 20th, Ford Field. Back to J.R and King at Raw. Thanks guys.

Back to J.R and King…

J.R:
It will be an epic night, one for the history books. And King, from those Smackdown matches, my personal favourite is of course, Stone Cold vs. Brock Lesnar!!!

King: It certainly is gonna be huge!!! I have to agree with you J.R, but I just cant see the Rattlesnake overcome Brock Lesnar AND Mr. McMahon!!!

J.R: If there is anyone who can overcome the odds, it is the Bionic Redneck, the one and only himself!!! Also at WrestleMania, a classic, twenty man battle royal. Nine superstars from Raw, nine from Smackdown, and TWO guest legends!!! And not forgetting the Hall of Fame, Class of 2005!!!

King: And Eminem performing live!!! Don’t forget Eminem!!!



Interview with Kane;

Jericho:
I’m here with Kane, and well, in six days time, you-

Kane: Let me show you something Todd. (Kane pulls out a ring) I was given this ring last night, by my future wife to be, Trish Stratus. Chris Jericho may be saying that she is at home as a precaution, but really, she is only at home because I wore her out last night. (Laughs) Trish proposed to me last night, but wanted to keep it a secret until this Sunday, but I’m not one for secrets. I accepted, and this Sunday, we will show the world our affection for one another.

Chris Jericho, you may think that Trish is playing the role of the damsel in distress, but really, she’s just pulling you along. See you Sunday Jericho. Oh, and Trish…(blows a kiss) I love you.

Commercial

4th Match:

Undertaker w/Paul Bearer vs. Steven Richards

Total squash match, with Taker totally dominant. Picks up the win with the Tombstone.

Winner: Undertaker

After the match, Taker gets down on one knee and does his normal after match thing, but then HBK comes from behind, with a chair, and nails Taker in the back of then head, then nails Bearer too.

HBK then lifts up the urn, and empties it all over The Undertaker, and does his pose, then Taker sits up, and HBK jumps out of the ring in shock, and quickly back through the crowd, as Taker stands in the ring, with a cold long look at HBK, running through the crowd.



Back to J.R and King…

J.R: What an absolute asshole Shawn Michaels is King.

King: Oh, he is so smart. We all thought he had left, but it was a ploy all along!!!

J.R: It is nearly all folks, the time has almost come, but before we go, at any moment, we expect Randy Orton to call out John Cena for what should be an almighty showdown.

WrestleMania promo

Commercial

We return, with Randy Orton in the ring, ready to speak…but then Cena’s music hits, and the #1 Contender makes his way to the ring, with a mic in hand. He gets into the ring, and goes face to face with Orton. The crowd starts to pop big time, as Orton begins to speak.

Orton:
This Sunday, is the biggest night of my life. It is the biggest night, of John Cena’s life. We are going to be involved in the biggest main event in WrestleMania history, the youngest main event in WrestleMania history, the biggest WrestleMania of all time. All eyes will be on us John, I know I will rise to the occasion, but will you?? Will you rise to the occasion, or choke??

Cena: Randy, I’ve been waiting for this match my whole life, so you bet your ass I’ll be ready, cocked and loaded for Ford Field this Sunday. Over the last four weeks or so, you, Ric Flair and Batista have all said, that I’m not ready. That I’m not competition. Well, let me remind you, that I am a back to back Royal Rumble winner, I beat The Rock at WrestleMania last year, I’ve beaten Vince McMahon, and I’ve beaten both your pals.

Randy, whether you believe it or not, I’m a big time player, and I mean business. BIG BUSINESS!!! You want to underestimate me?? That’s fine, I like it that way, because then, I’ll take you by surprise kid, And that title of yours, will soon be mine!!!

Orton: John, I’ve known you for years. Right from when we broke into the WWE. We both came along the same time, but right from the start I was always this much better. What makes you any different now?? What makes you in my league?? Is it because I cant see you?? Is it because your untouchable??

Cena: Orton, this ain’t about any catchphrases right now. I’m not out here spilling out raps, or putting you down. I’m deadly serious, because I’m deadly serious about that World Heavyweight Championship!!!

Orton: Well, that makes two of us then. I’m not prepared to let this title go. I’ve beaten the best to win, and beaten the best to keep it. I’ve won two Hell in a Cell matches, I’ve beaten Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho, Booker T, Mick Foley, Sting, Undertaker, Triple H, you name them, I’ve beat them.

Cena: It doesn’t matter who you’ve beaten, or how, all that matters is the here and now. This Sunday, is all that matters to me. That one match, right now, is more important that life itself. You better bring all you got, because I for sure will be bringing everything I have, and then some!!!

Orton: Believe me, don’t think I’m taking it lightly. I’m looking into your eyes right now, and honest to God, I realise that you will bring all you have, and so will I. I don’t want to leave the WrestleMania main event as the loser, as second best, because I’m not second best, I am THE best. This belt proves it.

Cena: No, no you’re not. I am the best. This Sunday, John Cena proves that he belongs. Proves, that I am number one. I’ve paid my dues, and now, I want to make history.

Orton: John, we will make history. This is a match that a heck of a lot of people have been dying to see, and now they will. I’m going all out for the victory. As much as you feel that you need to prove…I need to prove twice as much. I need to prove that I deserve this title, that I am good enough to be the top guy in the business, that I am not only the future, but I am the here and now.

Cena: You know. I don’t like you Randy, and I know you don’t like me, but WE are the future of the business, and WE have the chance to step up to being the here and now. But only one of us will do that this Sunday. And with all due respect, that man is gonna be ME!!!

Orton: I admit, I agree with all you just said, except for the last comment, because with all due respect, the man who steps up, will be ME!!

Both Orton and Cena drop their mic’s, and go nose to nose, then Orton extends his hand to Cena, which gets a mixed response. Cena steps back, then looks to the crowd, who are unsure what he should do. He looks at Orton, then slowly extends his hand, and the two shake hands, but refuse to take their eyes off one another, and their grips on each other are very tight.

Neither man backs up an inch, as the show closes out…

End of Show

Smackdown; Columbus, March 17th 2005;

Highlights from McMahon returning last week, and making himself referee for Austin - Lesnar at WM.

Opening Video

Pyro

Cole: This final stop on the road to WrestleMania is here in Columbus, Ohio, for SMACKDOWN!!! After all the weeks of build up all the talking, all the backstabbing, all the sneak attacks, and all the showdowns, tonight, is the last chance for messages to be sent, as WrestleMania Twenty One is dawning!!!

Tazz: Nice introduction there Cole, you must have been preparing that for weeks. Anyways, Tazz here is gonna kick back, and enjoy the ride, because tonight is gonna be off the hook!!!

Cole: Tonight, The Rock is in action, Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman, Bret Hart and Mr. McMahon are in the house, but no Stone Cold Steve Austin!!!

Tazz: Well, I was a little shocked not to see the Rattlesnake show up here tonight, but my guess is that he is too busy preparing for this Sunday. Don’t forget though Cole, a sit down interview between Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit, three days from their showdown at WrestleMania!!!



1st Match:

Test & Scott Steiner vs. Matt Hardy & Hurricane

Tag match between four of the nine Smackdown superstars involved in this Sunday’s battle royal, with back and forth action, leading to Test and Steiner cheating to victory with the three count on Hurricane.

Winners: Test & Steiner

After the match, Test and Steiner celebrate, and grab a mic. They begin to bad mouth the rest of the competitors in the Battle Royal, which leads to a run in from Kanyon, William Regal, Lance Storm, Billy Gunn and Rene Dupree. At first, they beat down Test & Steiner, but soon, begin to bicker among one another, and a mass brawl starts, and spills into the crowd as we cut to a commercial

Commercial

We then cut backstage, with Josh Matthews who is with Jamie Noble & Nidia

Josh:
Jamie, Nidia, in three days, it’s the six pack challenge for the Cruiserweight Championship, and Jamie, after your victory over Tajiri two weeks ago, you must be very confident??

Noble: That’s right Josh, I must be confident, but I’m not happy. You see, I beat Tyjiri two weeks ago, fair and square. I should have a one on one title match with Tyjiri this Sunday, and not have to put up with the other idiots in the match, but Bret Hart is prejudice against Jamie Noooble boooyyy, just because I live in a trailer park, with my Nidia, he doesn’t want me to be the cruuuuiserweight champion, booyy, but I will be.

Josh: Well, I’m not sure whether you have heard or not Jamie, but Bret has also just banned any ringside presence for the match, which would mean you’re in there without Nidia, Akio wont have Sakoda by his side, and Chavo wont be allowed to have his father accompany him.

Noble: Are you serious?? I’m Jammmie Noooble boooyyy, and my Nidia is like a good luck charm. I need her out there with me. (Takes his chewing gum out, and gives it to Nidia, who pops it in her mouth) But if Bret wants to play dirty, then that’s fine, I’ll still be the NEW Cruiserweight champion this Sunday!!!

Jamie then kisses Nidia, and walks off, while Nidia looks Josh up and down, then jumps on him, and starts to kiss him too. Jamie has to run back, and pull her off him.

Noble:
What the hell has gotten into you girl?? You’re too horny baby. I’m sending you to a doctor this week. I’ve already caught you in Mickey’s trailer last night, and Aunt Betties on Tuesday!!!

We then see a limo pull up. A driver steps out, opens the door, and Goldberg steps up. He has a shiner after last week.

2nd Match:

Charlie Haas w/S. Benjamin vs. Chris Harris w/J. Storm

In the first of two singles matches tonight between the two teams, TWGTT get the first win of the night, with a clean win, after Haas fought out of the Catatonic, and got a victory roll for the three, which shocked AMW.

Winner: Charlie Haas

TWGTT celebrate up the ramp, while the shocked AMW say that they’ll get them later.

We then cut backstage, and see the brawl continue between the Smackdown stars involved in the battle royal this Sunday. Officials eventually step in, and break the brawl up, with a lot of stare down’s taking place between the stars…

WrestleMania Relived;

This week, Wrestlemania IX from Caesars Palace.

The whole Roman theme, Hogan & Beefcake taking on Money Inc. and then Yokozuna beating Bret Hart via some cheating, and then Hogan taking on Yokozuna right after, and beating him!!!

Cole:
Well, WrestleMania nine was a heck of an event, and this Sunday, the late Yokozuna will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Tazz: Arguably the best big man ever in the wrestling business. So athletic for his size, a great competitor, and of course a former WWE Champion!!

Cole: Folks, in just a second, I will be in the ring, to conduct a special interview with Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit. Do NOT miss it!!!

Commercial

In the ring with Michael Cole…

Cole:
Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome, the challenger for the United States Championship this Sunday, CHRIS BENOIT!!!

We see the arrival of Chris Benoit on the stage, and he makes his way to the ring, and shakes hands with Cole as he waits for Eddie.

Cole: And now, the defending champion, EDDIE GUERRERO!!!

Then, Guerrero comes to the ring in his low rider, posing to the crowd, then gets into the ring, and carries the belt with him. He and Benoit stand either side of Michael Cole, but don’t take their eyes off each other.

Cole: Thank you for joining me guys, and in three days, you two will reopen your long and dated history, in front of the entire world to see at WrestleMania!! You two have such a long history, you have travelled on the road together, fought in many battles, stood side by side, and been at one another’s throats. You both know the others weaknesses, and strengths, you know what the other is going to do, and when. My first question is how will you prepare for this match, knowing your opponent so well, in and out of the ring?? How will you get the upper hand, and outsmart the other??

Eddie: You know Michael, you’re right. We have been the best of friends, we have been the worst of enemies, and we know each other so well, or so you would think. You see, I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, that when you think you know someone, it turns out you don’t know them at all, right?? Well, that’s how it is with me.

Chris, I’m sure you think that you know me, but in actual fact, you don’t know me at all. I’m not stupid enough to let anybody in this business get to know the real me, because then, you’ve lost your mystique hommes. You don’t have that identity. But Chris, I know you. I know you inside, and out, because you are a nice guy, but I’m not. I lie, cheat, and steal esse. Its not a slogan, it’s a way of life. And this Sunday, you better believe hommes, that I will lie, I will cheat, and I will steal to make sure that I hold on to this championship belt!!!

Cole then exit’s the ring, as Benoit takes the mic, not looking too happy with Eddie’s comment.

Benoit:
Eddie, I DO know you. I know that you lie, cheat, and steal. I know that you put up a wall around everybody in this business, but I know the REAL Eddie Guerrero. I look into your eyes, and see you as the person you are. Cheat to win, yes. Whatever it takes, and I can agree with that. But when I look into those eyes of yours, I see all your weakness, and all your strengths. Eddie, I’ve wrestled you all over the world. In Mexico, in Japan, Canada, ECW, WCW, and here.

So when you say no one really knows you, you’re wrong, because I do. (Pokes Eddie in the chest) I know you have the heart and the passion, like no one I have ever met, and I know every time I step in the ring with you, its gonna be tough, its gonna be hard hitting, its gonna take all my guts, and all my will to win, but most of all, I know that win or lose, its always gonna be a blast.

Eddie takes the mic, and looks down at the ground, then looks back up, with a tear in his eye, and a lump in his throat.

Eddie:
And Chris, when I get in that ring with you, I look across and see that I’m in for a long night, I’m in for a lot of pain the next morning, but I’m in for a memorable contest.

Chris, when I step in the ring with you, I look across, and I see that will to win, that desire to be the best, and I respect you for that hommes, and if I beat you, I know I’ve earned it, and if I’ve lost, I’ve been beaten by the better man, but in the end, win, lose or draw, whether its five minutes, twenty minutes, or a time limit draw, when I walk out of the ring, and back through that curtain, I know that I will have a friend.



Crowd Pops, with Eddie and Benoit looking right at each other, both looking very emotional.

Benoit:
And Eddie, I know too, win lose or draw, when I go back through the curtain, I have a friend in you.

Crowd Pops again, with Eddie and Benoit looking right at each other, both still looking very emotional.

Eddie: (Smiles)
But you hommes, that I do Lie, and I Cheat and I steal. This Sunday will be no different esse. And the winner of the match wont be the only winner this Sunday hommes, because fifty thousand people are gonna be winners, as well as millions all around the globe, because like we always do esse, we will give it all we got, and you know, we don’t do it for ourselves, we do it, for you guys!!!

Crowd Pops

Benoit: Eddie, I know that you’ll lie, cheat and steal, because its what you do, but I will be ready for it. Because, when the bell rings this Sunday, you know it and I know it, the competitive edge will come out in us, and our friendship wont exist until the bell rings again, whether it be three minutes, thirty minutes, or three hours. Eddie, may the best man win.

Benoit extends his hand, and Guerrero shakes his head. He then hugs Benoit, and two embrace in the ring to a great ovation. They then look each other in the eyes, and neither backs up an inch as we cut away…

RAW Rebound:

- Kane destroying Jericho, then claiming that Trish has asked him to marry her…

- Edge and Christian showdown, ending in a brawl, with Edge on top, and having to be pulled away by officials.

- Shaniqua dominates the two challengers for her title this Sunday.

- HBK badmouthing the Deadman, then being spooked out, and apparently leaving, but later attacks Taker, and pours the contents of the urn all over him.

- Orton - Cena showdown, with the stern handshake at the end.

Cole: A truly emotional moment moments ago here on Smackdown. Tazz, we expected Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit to have a huge showdown, and boy oh boy, it delivered.

Tazz: Cole, these two men just poured out there souls to these people, and this Sunday, expect these two wonderful athletes to turn it up another notch, and you know, I think that Benoit and Guerrero could well steal the show in three days time.

3rd Match: Six Man Tag Match:

Tajiri, Rey Mysterio, Paul London vs. Chavo Guerrero, Jamie Noble, Akio

Quick paced cruiserweight action, serving as a little preview for this Sunday. The match breaks down, and Mysterio gets the win with the 619, followed by the West Coast Pop on Chavo for the three

Winners: Rey Mysterio, Tajiri & Paul London

Mysterio, Tajiri and London celebrate the win, while Chavo, Noble and Akio argue amongst one another, heading into WrestleMania this Sunday.

Cole: Ladies and Gentlemen, we are now just three short days away from the Showcase of the Immortals, and at the event, we will see those six men battle it out for the Cruiserweight Title!!!

Tazz: I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, Paul London is the man to watch in this match, my tip for the Cruiserweight Title.

Cole: Triple H defends the WWE Championship against the Great One!!!

Tazz: So much history with these two men Cole. The people want to see it, you want to see it, I want to see it. This epic rivalry needs to be settled once and for all, and it will, at WrestleMania.

Cole: Kurt Angle meets Goldberg, one on one, in a feud born out of competition, and ignited by jealousy.

Tazz: I cant wait for this. But can Kurt Angle, as good a performer as he is, match up to the colossal Goldberg!!??

Cole: Benoit challenges Guerrero for the United States Championship!!!

Tazz: Words don’t describe just how pumped I am for that match, my pick for match of the night Cole!!

Cole: And, lets not forget, Stone Cold Steve Austin will face Brock Lesnar, in the most anticipated match quite possibly in the history of WrestleMania!!!

Tazz: Very true, Cole. This anticipation for this is bigger than Hogan vs. Andre, Bret vs. Michaels, Hogan vs. The Rock, or any match in the history of this classic event.

Cole: Also, a twenty man battle royal, featuring Smackdown, two legends, and Raw. With more on the Raw side of things, here is King and J.R…

J.R: Thank you guys, and folks, Raw is ready to bring you some HUGE match ups this Sunday night, and arguably the biggest match from Raw, is the epic showdown set between HBK Shawn Michaels and The Undertaker.

King: Oh my!!! I don’t know where this is gonna go. Can Undertaker hold onto his unbeaten record at Wrestlemania?? It stands at 12-0, but this Sunday, HBK aims to end it once and for all!!!

J.R: Chris Jericho vs. Kane!!!! Can Jericho overcome the big red monster, and gain revenge for the hell he has put Trish through over the last month??

King: No way. Kane is not only an unstoppable force, but he is an immoveable object!!! Kane will destroy Jericho, then he and Trish can live happily ever after!!!

J.R: It’s a triple threat match for the Women’s Championship!!! Shaniqua vs. Jazz vs. Victoria!!! Finally these three women will be in the same ring at the same time for the title!!!

King: This situation has been foggy for weeks J.R. For three straight weeks, Women’s matches all ended in no contest, two title matches and a number one contenders match, but all three have the chance to prove they are number one!!!

J.R: Brother vs. Brother, for the Intercontinental Championship!!! Christian defends against Edge, in a best two out of three falls match, with straight up, one on one, followed by a Strap Match, followed by, if necessary T…L…C!!!

King: The bad blood has been brewing for weeks J.R. Edge and Christian weren’t on the same page for weeks, then Edge became the Intercontinental Champion, and things broke down into chaos between them. Christian outsmarted the entire world two weeks ago, and I think he’ll do it again this Sunday!!!

J.R: Then, the Main Event, The Youngest WrestleMania main event of all time, as two men in their mid twenties battle for the richest prize in the game!!! Randy Orton, faces the Royal Rumble winner, John Cena!!!

King: This has been debated since the Rumble. Can Orton prove he is a worthy champion?? Or will Cena prove that he belongs?? My money goes with Orton. He has the championship advantage, he has Evolution, and he has more talent!!!

J.R: That sounds great right King?? Well, that’s the full card guys, and we’ll look forward to seeing all you guys this Sunday, at Ford Field!!!

Cole: And folks, do not miss this Sunday’s event, because on top of all that, EMINEM will perform the Wrestlemania theme tune!!!

Tazz: That’s my boy Cole, Eminem. I’m cool with him.

Commercial

We go to Bret Harts office, where he is sitting down, chatting on the phone, then, Vince McMahon walks in, and Bret ends his phone call, and stands up abruptly.

Hart:
What the hell do you want!!??

McMahon: (Smiles) C’mon, Bret. We’re old friends. Now, do us all a favour and drop the charade. Stop pretending that your on Austin’s side, because I know, Brock knows, and Paul knows that you are not on the rattlesnakes side. This Sunday, you will screw him over, on the biggest and grandest stage of all, and you will join up with the real power in this business.

Hart: You know, I’m gonna get you a shovel, because the shit coming out of your mouth is piling up around here. You must be more delusional than I ever thought you were. Why, would I ever want to join forces with you??

McMahon: Well, for one, you have joined up with me before, remember, last year at WrestleMania?? You did attempt to screw Austin there, in MY favour. And lets not forget, it was your call that lost Austin his job last May. You remember that, right? You remember that you refereed the match, and called for the bell, even though Austin didn’t tap, right??

Hart: Yeah, I do remember. But I also remember that right after that, I couldn’t live with myself. I couldn’t look into the mirror without wanting to smash my own face. I knew I had done to Austin, the exact same thing that happened to me in Montreal, back in 1997. I couldn’t look at my own kids, I couldn’t explain my actions, and then I realised that I had become so bitter, so twisted, that I would actually wanted the same thing to happen to someone else, that happened to me, just so they knew what I went through for seven years.

Also remember, that soon after Judgement Day, last May, I couldn’t stand to be in the same building as you, and soon, I tried to right my wrongs, I turned my back on you, and I got my full revenge at Survivor Series. That was it. That was it!!! I was finished with you, and as far as I was concerned, you didn’t even exist. You still don’t, so don’t dare think that I will be joining up with you any time. Its ludicrous to just even mention it.

McMahon: Can you explain the phone calls then?? You know, the ones you’ve been making to my cell phone all week long??

Hart: What??

McMahon: Bret, it may come as a shock to you, but I don’t lie to the fans. I don’t tell them that I will call the match right down the middle, I tell the fans that I will make sure the right man wins, and believe me, the right man will win this Sunday, because you are on our side!!!!

Hart: Let me get this into your head McMahon, I WILL NEVER join you, or anybody that associates themselves with you, as long as I am breathing in and out. And this Sunday, when I stand in Stone Colds corner, you will see exactly where my loyalties lie.

McMahon: Well see Bret, well see.

McMahon walks out, with a huge grin on his face, as Bret looks on in fury.

WrestleMania Promo

We cut through to the crowd, where we see the brawl continue between the nine Smackdown superstars involved in the Battle Royal this Sunday, before cutting backstage again, where Kurt Angle is talking with one of the officials…

Bret:
Listen, I’ve got a lot of preparation to do for this Sunday, but I’ll spare some time later on to help with that, ok.

Angle shakes hands with the official then walks off down the corridor, but then from behind, GOLDBERG nails him with a lead pipe to the back. Angle falls to the ground grabbing his back, then Goldberg swings, and nails him in the head, busting Angle open, and knocking him out…

Goldberg:
Kurt, THAT, was a preview for this Sunday. Come WrestleMania, all you will be………is NEXT!!!!!!!!!!

Goldberg steps over the body of Angle, then drops the pipe, and walks off, while half a dozen people crowd around Angle to try and help him out.

Back to ringside…

Bret:
Oh my God!!! Goldberg has just totally destroyed the Olympic Gold Medallist!!! This has turned things upside down going into this Sunday!! Hoe can Goldberg explain that type of action!!!

Bret: Well Cole, plain and simple, he doesn’t have to!!! Goldberg is a loose cannon, and no one can even attempt to stand in his way!!! Not Angle, not Bret, not even George Bush could control Da Man!!!

Bret: Its an absolute disgrace!!! Folks, Kurt Angle WILL be at Ford Field this Sunday, I guarantee it!!! But he may not last long, and its because of what Goldberg just did. Dammit!!!!

Tazz: This epic rivalry comes to a final resolution in less than 72 hours!!! It has ran from the summer, and ends at WrestleMania!!!!

Cole: It certainly will, but Angle wont be goin into it 100%, and that asshole Goldberg will.

4th Match:

The Rock vs. Hardcore Holly

Holly works on The Rock early, but the great one makes a quick fight back, and gets the win early, with a Rock Bottom, followed by the Peoples Elbow.

Winner: The Rock

Rock celebrates, but then Triple H’s music plays and The Game makes his way out to the stage, clapping The Rocks win. He then walks toward the ring, and grabs a mic, then enters the ring, but right away, The Rock takes the microphone from him…

The Rock: The Rock is giving you to the count of three to take your monkey ass, and walk it right back up that ramp before The Rock whoops your candy ass!!!

HHH then takes a mic…

Triple H: Hold up. I’m not here to get into a fight with you Hollywood, I just wanted to congratulate you on your win. And I also want to congratulate you on being the man who never gives up. No matter how many times you’ve had your ass handed to you at WrestleMania in title matches, you keep coming back for more.

Steve Austin beat you, I beat you, Steve Austin beat you again. Three years running you just couldn’t get the job done, and now, its gonna be a fourth loss. You don’t have what it takes Rock, and you never did. When it comes to the big stage, you cant help but choke, this Sunday, you will choke again.

Cole: Triple H, you can talk, and talk, and talk, and talk, but at the end of it all, when all the talking is done, when all the facts are passed out, when all the crap is said, then, all the dust settles, and all the smoke clears, and this Sunday, when the smoke clears, one man will hold the WWE Championship, and that man will be….THE ROCK!!!!!!!

Tazz: You have to be kidding me?? You have to be kidding. Rock, this Sunday, at Wre-

Cole: Triple H, KNOW YOUR ROLE…..AND SHUT YOUR MOUTH!!!!! The Rock wants all the talking to end, because quite frankly, I’ve heard enough. Triple H, you THINK you’re gonna win this Sunday, but, The Rock, KNOWS he’s gonna layeth, the smacketh down, all over YOU this Sunday, and walk out, a ten time WORLD CHAMPION!!!! IFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF YAAAAAAAAAA SAAAAMMMMELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL………WHAT THE ROCK……ISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS COO-

Triple H then attacks The Rock, hitting him with his microphone. He pounds him down, then gets up, and goes for the Pedigree, but Rock fights out, and pounds HHH into the corner, and hit’s the spit punch. He then goes for the Rock Bottom, but HHH elbows him away. The two then brawl to the outside, and go punch for punch, then the fight spills into the crowd, and through the audience, still going punch for punch, and finally, they are broken up by security, pulling the two apart, and dragging them off in separate directions. Both try to break free, but are unable to. The crowd boos, wanting the two men to keep going at it, but the two are dragged away, and we cut to another commercial…

Commercial

Cole:
We are back on Smackdown, less than 72 hours away from Wrestlemania, emanating from Ford Field, and folks, what an intense brawl we just witnessed, between Triple H and The Rock.

Tazz: Oh yeah. These two will settle their differences once and for all this Sunday, but who will be walking out with the gold strap?? I cant wait!!!

We then cut backstage again, and see the stars in the twenty man battle royal still fighting, but the brawl ends, as Test and Steiner take total control double teaming all in their path, sending a message to all their Smackdown opponents for this Sunday…

4th Match:

Shelton Benjamin w/Charlie Haas vs. James Storm w/Chris Harris

A long match, going nearly 13 minutes, with plenty of back and forth action, ending with Benjamin getting the win, cleanly just like Haas earlier, scoring with a cradle, after Storm missed an elbow off the top rope.

Winner: Shelton Benjamin

TWGTT leave up the ramp, celebrating two straight clean wins over AMW in one night, giving them all the confidence heading into WrestleMania…but that will be a tag match, and things could be totally different.

Commercial

McMahon’s music plays, and he makes his way to the ring, along with Heyman and Lesnar. Heyman is carrying Steve Austin’s case of beer, and the trio laugh all the way to the ring. Vince gets on the mic first, and begins to talk…

Bret:
This Sunday, you will all witness history in the making. The first ever match between Brock Lesnar and Stone Cold Steve Austin. In that match, Paul Heyman will be in Lesnar’s corner, and Bret Hart will SCREW Stone Cold. (Crowd boos)

He will, I promise you all, he will. And then, the special guest referee, will be…ME!!!!! And I, will make sure that the right man wins. (Crowd boos) Hey, at least, I am honest with you, at least I am telling you all, that I will take sides, unlike the backstabber Bret Hart. I don’t lie to you, HE DOES!!!

Austin, let me tell you, with me as the referee, Heyman in the opposite corner, Bret ready to screw you over, and BROCK LESNAR facing you, Austin, quite frankly, you have NO CHANCE IN HELL!!!!!!!!

McMahon then hands the mic to Heyman…

Heyman:
For the last week, I haven’t slept. Not, out of worry for my client, Brock Lesnar, not out of worry for my well being, but for excitement. I am so excited about this Sunday, as is everybody in the wrestling world. This is the most talked about match in YEARS, and why?? Because of me!!!! Crowd boos. No, think about it. Lesnar vs. Austin?? Great, a dream match, but not legendary. Then, you have Bret Hart in Austin’s corner?? Fine, because who better to bring into the match, than Bret Hart’s mortal nemesis, MR MCMAHON!!!

Add all this together, and you have the ingredients for the greatest match in WrestleMania history. BIGGER than WrestleMania I, BIGGER than Hogan vs. Andre, BIGGER than Hogan vs. Ultimate Warrior, BIGGER than Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels, BIGGER than Austin vs. The Rock, BIGGER than Hogan vs. Rock, BIGGER than WrestleMania itself!!!!

And believe me, this Sunday, Bret Hart will SCREW Stone Cold, because I’ve heard the voicemail on Vince’s cell, I’ve heard all his plans, I promise you all, Stone Cold Steve Austin WILL NOT beat my client!!!

Brock: Paul, you and Vince have said it all really. You know, I could beat the Rattlesnake all alone if I wanted to, and I could beat him and Bret at the same time if I wanted to. But that doesn’t have to happen, and it WONT happen. Why?? Because Bret would SCREW Stone Cold.

Austin, not only are you facing insurmountable odds, but you are facing ME too!!! At WrestleMania I wont make short work of you, because I will take my time, and pick you apart, dissect you, then hang you out to dry.

Oh, and Bret, STOP calling me at home!!!! (Laughs) We all know the drill this Sunday, and it will be perfect.

Brock drops the mic, then opens the beer case, and throws two to Paul and two to Vince, then takes two himself. They raise their hands high in the air with the cans, and toast to this Sunday, then….Bret’s music hits!!!! The General Manager stands at the top of the ramp, mic in hand, but only gets a mixed reception from the fans, who aren’t sure whether he will turn or not.

Hart:
You know, you three make me sick. You actually think that these people will believe the crap you all spiel that I’m gonna turn on Austin this Sunday?? If that is all you guys have to try and cau-

Heyman: Hold on, shut up Bret!!! Shut up. Don’t try and pull the wool over these peoples eyes, because that’s just not right.

Brock: Bret, how about this. Don’t tell us that you’re not turning on Austin this Sunday, why don’t you show us instead?? Prove that you aren’t on our side, PROVE IT!!!!

Hart: I’m not stupid Brock. You want me to go down there and face you three?? I cant do that, because the numbers just don’t add up. I know your plan. I’ll come down there, fight with you three, then you can beat me up so badly that I cant show up this Sunday at WrestleMania.

McMahon: CUT THE CRAP Bret!!!! You know it, I know it, Paul knows it, Brock knows it, these people know it, and STEVE AUSTIN KNOWS IT!!!!!!!! He can see it in your eyes that you’re not on his side, so just admit it. Or haven’t you got the balls to admit it??

Bret: (Looks around the arena, which goes absolutely nuts, wanting him to fight the three men) You know, I say, Brock, you are right, my actions will speak louder than words, and right now, I’ll show you….

Bret drops the mic, and sprints to the ring. He knocks down Heyman, then low blows Brock, and clotheslines McMahon. He then goes for the Sharpshooter on Vince, but Lesnar recovers and levels Hart with a monstrous clothesline. Vince gets back to his feet, as does Heyman, and the trio stand over Bret. Brock picks him up off the ground, and gets him up for the F5...but then…

**Glass Shatters**, and we see Steve Austin enter the arena, inside his pick up truck, driving all the way to the ring. Lesnar drops Bret, and the trio stand and watch as Austin steps out of the vehicle, with a can of beer in his hand. He drinks the beer, then crushes the can. He points at Brock, Vince and Paul, then adds up to himself 3 on 1, shrugs his shoulders and gets into the ring, and immediately goes punch for punch with Brock. Lesnar gets the best, and whips him off the ropes, but Austin comes back with a Lou Thesz press, and wails on Brock.

He then jumps up, and hit’s the Stunner on Heyman, and stomps away at him. Vince then attacks Stone Cold, but the Rattlesnake knocks him down, and hit’s a spine buster. Brock then goes for Austin, but Austin moves, and scores with a Stunner. He then stomps on his Wrestlemania opponent, then senses that someone is behind him, thinking its McMahon and quickly turns around and nails a Stunner….ON BRET HART!!!! Austin then stops in his tracks and realises what he has just done. He puts his head in his hands, and then looks to the outside, where McMahon is walking up the ramp, looking toward Austin, grinning ear to ear. He points at Bret, and then points at Austin, and tells him he has three days…

Cole:
OH MY GOD!!! Stone Cold Steve Austin has just stunned the man in his corner for WrestleMania this Sunday. What type of ramifications will this entail for Ford Field. Mr. McMahon is the special guest referee, it’s Austin vs. Lesnar, what a cliff-hanger moment as he head to WRESTLEMANIA!!!!

McMahon smiles, as the camera goes to Austin, who still is annoyed with stunning Bret a moment ago, as the show goes off the air…

Re: Being the booker

You sound like J.R at the end...'Don't miss it, Please don't miss it'

Anyway onto both shows, my thoughts and then my predictions, and then why I predict these and it's gonna be a long little essay....

OK, first up was Raw and the cocky HBK coming out, this is the classic 'heel' thing where the heel talks about the face, then the face interupts the heel. The Deadman saying that in 6 Days time he will kill the Showstopper...(not me of course) but Shawn Michaels. Anyway I must side with Taker on this one....

Good powerful interview with Jericho expressing his deep hatred of Kane.

Nice interaction in the Ring between Edge and Christian, who could have thought that this feud was built up over two weeks. That's pretty much my only real criticism at this point, maybe the feud could have pushed on a bit longer as it has alot of potential...

Nice little recap of the Matches seems authentic as during the I.P PPV's they have the other promotion's Announce team review the card from their Brand.

Interesting ending to the show, very interesting. I would have thought that they would have been beating the hell out of each other out of the Ring...but a show of respect ay, that's weird......

Smackdown

Nice stuff there between Eddie and Benoit, really good Interview there.

Love the authenticity again between the Announce Teams

I'm torn between this....will Bret turn.....or will Bret not turn? McMahon's last comment...'We'll see Bret, well see,' that indicates to me a turn and I wouldn't be suprised. I'll get onto that in detail later with my predictions. Also the ending kind of changes the whole view of the show.....

Now my Predictions

World Heavyweight Championship Match:
Randy Orton vs. John Cena
Winner: John Cena, I can see the Franchise taking Raw to that new level and Orton playing catch up.

WWE Championship Match:
Triple H vs. The Rock
Winner - I can see HHH winning this one, purely for a feud with Brock after WM, to be honest I would be suprised to see Rock win. Only way I wouldn't be suprised was if Brock interfeared which might be a possibility

Intercontinental Championship; 3 Stages of Hell Match:
1st Fall: One on one
2nd Fall: Strap Match:
3rd Fall (if necessary): Tables, Ladders and Chairs
Christian vs. Edge
Winner - Not sure about this one, I got that feeling Christian will retain leaving this feud to simmer for longer

United States Championship Match:
Eddie Guerrero vs. Chris Benoit
Winner - Two great athletes going at it, I see Benoit getting the victory

WWE Tag Team Championship’s Match:
America’s Most Wanted vs. The Worlds Greatest Tag Team
Winner - AMW to win

Women’s Championship; Triple Threat Match:
Shaniqua vs. Jazz vs. Victoria
Winner - Jazz to pull of the victory with that wonder speech.....

Cruiserweight Championship; Six Pack Match:
Tajiri vs. Noble vs. Mysterio vs. Akio vs. London vs. Chavo
Winner - Paul London to get the victory here

The Showstopper vs. The Dead Man
Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker w/ Paul Bearer
Winner - As said earlier I see the Deadman winning and keeping it 13 and 0 at WM, even I can't see HBK defeating him.

War to Settle the Score:
‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin w/ Bret ’Hitman’ Hart vs.
Brock Lesnar w/ Paul Heyman
With Mr. McMahon as Special Guest Referee
Winner - This is the biggie.....I see either Hart turning, or McMahon turning, but I've got a gut feeling it will be Hart...should be one for the ages with Austin coming up trumps.

Chris Jericho vs. Kane
Winner - Kane to end this fairytale with Trish joining him

Kurt Angle vs. Goldberg
Winner - Goldberg to show his brute force and strength and toppling Angle with it

20 Man Battle Royal:

Re: Being the booker

OK..where do I begin

RAW
The HBK segment at the start of the show was just great. As Showstopper said, Classic face v heel segment and HBK coming in later on opening the urn really shows his cocky side and I like it
Jericho's interview was also well written showing his emotions and guarantees victory at WM. Kane's interview was really freaky!
Edge and Christian segment was also great with the TLC history and Christians nose picking joke
Orton and Cena, I would say that I was more into HBK and Undertaker but after that face to face talk, Orton v Cena is the one I'm really looking forward to now from RAW!

Smackdown
I was really looking forward to Eddie and Benoit face-off, but I've got to say that I'm dissapointed..lol..joking..it was awesome and with all the emotions behind it, I have to agree this will be one of the best matches on the card
Goldberg attacking Angle from behind and busting him open shows that Goldberg is not a man to messed with and I like it, this makes Angle/Goldberg more harder to predict. Although I would have loved a little more time given to them
HHH trash talking Rock about those three WM losses in a row was just great and also adds emotion to this match that The Rock will really go for the title and to teach HHH to Shut His Mouth!
And finally, Bret and McMahon, Face turn or Heel turn, I'm really 50/50 on this. Can't decide at all. Plus the end where Austins stuns Bret makes me wonder whether Bret will remain face and forget the whole thing or turn on Austin because he stunned him!

And Now....The Predictions:

1. 20 Man Battle Royal:
Really have no idea who's gonna win this one but I'll go with RVD. I'm guessing one of the legends is Ultimate Warrior, maybe Hogan could be the other one!

2. AMW v WGTT:
The two clean wins are sure to make someone wonder who's gonna win this match, but not me ..I'm gonna go with AMW because they clearly haven't had a clear advantage in this feud

3. Six Man Cruiserweight Challenge:
High-Flying Match, which will be awesome! I'm gonna go with Paul London because I really do think he deserves a reign

4. Shaniqua v Jazz v Victoria
Shaniqua has held the title for some time and so there's no way she's retaining. As for Jazz or Victoria, Victoria has clearly been at a disadvantage going into this match, So Victoria is my predicted winner

5. Jericho v Kane
Kane will win this and I see a Trish heel turn again because Jericho said she has to be at WM to witness the glory, well the glory will be Kane and Trish leaving together

6. Eddie v Benoit
Awesome match-up, no doubt there! I see Eddie retaining, donno why but I just seem to think Eddie will retain

7. Edge v Christian
Definitely will go to the 3rd fall, otherwise no point of TLC being mentioned and talked about in their segment. I don't see Christian losing the title so early, Christian will win this one and the feud will continue with Edge winning the title back in the end

8. Angle v Goldberg
Goldberg may be Da Man! But Kurt Angle won the Gold Medal with broken freaking neck! Angle wins this one because Goldberg has had more 'assault victories' over Angle and Angle losing this one would hurt his popularity

9. Rock v HHH
Really looking forward to this one. Although I don't see Rock winning this because Brock will be coming for the title but still makes me wonder If Brock is coming for the title, then he needs a face opponent, which makes me wonder if Rock is gonna win. I'm gonna go with Triple H in this one

10. HBK v Taker
Would have loved to have a stipulation to this one but none the less it's gonna be HUGE!! Undertaker remains undefeated at WM because quite frankly that's where most of his popularity comes from. Plus HBK has had many last laughs in this feud so I don't see him winning the final battle

11. Brock v Austin
Probably the toughest prediction and I love it the way it is, hard to predict. McMahon turning face is really a very rare chance because you need an Evil Boss! Bret stays face or turns heel, Brock is winning this one because he is the future and needs this push, but that would hurt Austin's popularity, So now I see Bret turning heel and screwing Austin because of the stunner and probably many other past "made-up" reasons as well. Brock will win this one!

12. Randy Orton v John Cena
Finally, the Main Event and what a main event, none could have been a replacement. Wrestlemania is "where it all begins..again" and Cena and Orton will take WWE to new heights after this match. Cena will win this one and maybe we'll see a Orton face turn after the match with a handshake and show of respect and maybe exit from evolution!

Overall..An AWESOME CARD!!! And I can't wait for Saturday. Man, if there was only a way to make the earth rotate faster..lol..Wrestlemania is gonna be huge!!
