Re: WWE 2007 & Beyond by DDMac

Solid work on both recaps. On RAW, not really a main event to end the show but the brawl was expected to save a pretty disappointing set up. Liked the mixed tag match with JBL going over Carlito and ugh Beth Phoenix is around. Makes me sad. Austin stepping up the feud with Angle by taking out Kurt's brother Eric is a nice revenge touch after what Kurt did to JR last week.

As for SmackDown! although it seemed a little rushed, a Rock/Cena feud shall be a goody. I can see it running through to Summerslam before Rock takes his break back to Hollywood and puts Cena over. Batista still being made out to be an animal but we all know in the end he still jobs to Kennedy. Super Kennedy! Gets bloodied at the end and the Hardyz being mauled makes Big Dave look extra impressive. CM Punk = ratings. Mark Henry = no ratings. Anyways, another solid edition of SD! and Backlash is looking uber sick imo.

Re: WWE 2007 & Beyond by DDMac

What up Mac? Getting back into the swing here my good man. Congrats on all your awards and everything. You deserve it after the year you had in BTB. You became a mainstay, a leader, and a top flight booker, literally out of nowhere. And you really did an awesome job. Truly. And you even managed to write the (second) best PPV of the year.

Anyway, I am getting very tired, and don’t have it in me to touch on the actual “goings on” of the thread. However, I guarantee some feedback for you in the next two days or so. Take care my friend.

DDMac's Raw Feedback


Matches opening shows = ratings I actually kind of mark for Cade and Murdoch. Don't ask me why, but it was great seeing them in such a high profile match here, and actually getting a push by beating the Champs. Great stuff. Big Show and 'Mags have completely owned AMW in this feud so far, so Harris and Storm better go over at Backlash. Foley plz. From the looks of this we'll be getting AMW and Redneck Wrecking Crew feud down the line. I can't believe no one has done it yet.

No match for Haas tonight I think he should kill someone and join Heyman/Estrad and then win the IC title. Ignore Szumi, he knows nothing Is Luther Reigns still around in this thread? Last I saw of him was either getting his ass kicked by Stone Cold or the WrestleMania pre-show. So ... are you going to push this fella?

I'm loving the tension between Edge, Doane and Nitro. I'm guessing the only reason Doane and Nitro want in the match is to get a piece of Orton. I think Nitro should take a walk at Backlash. He's rubbish as a face.

MVP~!!! Awesome stuff this little segment, although written in full it would have been golden. I love the idea of P3 with the calling cards, it makes Porter almost like a star boxer. Although a Y2J-like debut would have been great, I don't share the same gripes as others about Eugene and Hacksaw feuding with Montel. It makes sense to me, since they are both over, and we all know that Porter will kill them in the end.

JBL is just awesome, but I like it that you are keeping him at the IC title level putting younger guys over. Sounded like a funny segment with Mickie and Beth. The L Word? American Show? No thanks. But I get the joke Sabu still hanging around. I think you should use him to keep your IC division stacked.

Now this is the kind of Steve Austin that I love. Just been a straight forward psycho. We tend to forget that he is still a heel, so I loved this very 'Taker-esque assault on Eric Angle. Ain't it good fun beating up Eric? This kind of gives the impression that Angle will be going over at Backlash, but I personally see it as evening the score because of J.R, and Austin is still winning.

MVP should be hated by the entire roster for his awesomeness. Looks he may be getting an enforcer in the shape of Luther Reigns. It would be cool if you turned LR into a Rick Rude kind of manager to MVP's HBK.

Oooh, this sounded suspiciously like a shoot promo from HBK on RVD. I hope you make Michaels a fully fledged heel from this feud. I really wasn't expecting him to take a walk in the tag match, but i love him as a heel. RVD to go over though plz? JBL pinning Carly all but confirms the Raw rematch we are bound to see between them.

Mercury to beat Edge? Ha ha. Doane and Orton next week? I can see that being pretty good. Austin's final Raw appearance should be a treat as well. Sounded like a decnt Main Event with Edge squashing Mercury, but the aftermath was interesting with Edge, Melina and Lita getting one up on Orton, which I wasn't expecting until Backlash, since he is obviously winning.

DDMac's SmackDown Feedback


Thank god you decided to write this Cena promo in full, Mac. Ha ha. You know I love this new characterisation of Cena, and I'll be extremely interested to see how you decide to use his character without Undertaker around. Like you said in your notes, with guys like Kennedy, Batista, Cena, Flair and Rock on top form, there's barely any need for 'Taker or Hunter. I was actually a little surprised to see Rocky come out, as I never expected you to give us this kind of dream feud so soon after 'Taker has been taken out. Rock seemed to get the better of Cena on this verbal exchange {loved the reference to Naitch}, but Cena taking the match on the chin and punking Rocky out just makes me love his character even more. I can see a No Contest or something at Backlash, or maybe Cena getting himself DQed. Cena will go over though in the end I'm sure.

The Cruiserweight Division is looking even friskier now with Sabin and Noble back in the mix. Rey continues to get the better of Daniels, but this can't surely mean that Mysterio will dropping the title so soon? Noble getting the win and this push is awesome, just like he is. Push plz.

So the New King's Court are the resident jobbers now? Well I guess you don't have a lot of depth in the division. Deuce and Domino in my opinion. Good win for Helms and Benjamin, who continue to look awesome, and a nice way to mirror the events of last week. Hooligans are still going over at Backlash though ... I think

Ah, The Nature Boy. I would expect nothing less than his promos to be in full to be quite honest Great little rant by Naitch about Backlash, but he did seem a little bit subdues to begin with. I think I prefer angry Flair to smug Flair. Kennedy managed to own both Naitch and Big Dave on the stick once again {the line about rubbing 'Tista's belly was awesome}, and he's becoming a hybrid of The Rock and Austin week after week. I had to laugh at The Miz attacking KK again. Didn't Lashley kill him? Lol @ Miz trying to hug Dave again. Hardys for the save! They really need to decide whether they are single or a tag team. The Main Event will be good simply because we will get to see Double K murder The Miz. Post match beat down Horsemen style anyone?

Wait, interviews equal momentum don't they? Well I guess the Fallen Angel just got some back. Regal and Lashley are both awesome {what, I like Lashley} so good match up next. Mark Henry?!! I'm loving this little trip between Marky Mark and T-Lo already, but I think a feud with Lashley would be quite horrible, except from the promos from Long. Triple Threat with Regal imo.

Ah, I missed Finlay last week, and now I see he has become a Main Event jobber? Pretty blasphemous to me, Mac. Stop discriminating plz Nice little confrontation between Rocky and Cena again, but I don't see this one getting pysical at all until Backlash.

More air time for Henry and T-Lo? I love it. By the way, has Teddy stolen the U.S title belt? Great line: “English cracka and a house nig-”. The match next week should be a complete clusterfuck, but fun though.

Yay, Punk finally debuts. Biohazard WTF? Ha ha. The Anaconda Vice owns the GTS in my opinion though. U.S title push as well.

Kennedy being friendly with The Hardys? He ain't no Stone Cold. He's officially the new Rock. Flair and Batista's attack on Matt and Jeff was awesome mainly because it reminded me of what Hunter and Austin did back in the Power Trip days of '01. Great times.

Kennedy kills Miz! YAY! Overdrive? Isn't that what MVP's finisher is officially called? Nevermind, because Big Dave just busted KK open with his bare hands. I don't think we've had a night since he won the title that Kennedy hasn't been left lying yet. Oh, he's retaining without a doubt.

Overall I still really enjoying both sets of recaps, Mac. On Raw, Austin and Angle's feud is definately outshining the WWE title picture, but once Edge and Orton leave the stable war, I can see them picking up again. On SD, Rock/Cena is awesome, as is KK/Dave, and pretty much everything. Oh, I forgot RVD/HBK. Awesome too. Backlash looks to have one of the best cards in a while, Mac. Great work

Re: WWE 2007 & Beyond by DDMac


Monday Night RAW; April 23rd, 2007:

Jerry Lawler and the returning J.R. welcome us to the program, hyping up Stone Cold’s last appearance on Raw and his expected confrontation with Angle tonight. Ross and Lawler make note of the final Raw match announced for Backlash, pitting JBL and the Women’s Champion Mickie James against Victoria and Intercontinental Champion Carlito in an Intergender match with BOTH titles on the line. Our announcers then segway into JBL making a speech later on tonight before we are ready to kick off the program.

The night kicks off with Armando Alejandro Estrada, Paul Heyman, The Big Show and Umaga walking down to the ring. Paul E. takes the mic and states that it’s about time for Charlie Haas to make his decision. He can keep toiling in meaningless matches, against worthless opponents, and continue on the road to absolutely nowhere OR he can join up with the most dominant faction in wrestling, headlined by the ‘future World Tag Team Champions’.
Heyman and company wait until finally … the World Tag Team Champions America’s Most Wanted, Chris Harris and James Storm, make their way onto the stage. The Wildcat has microphone in hand, and immediately suggests that everybody in the ring needs to get their heads off of Charlie Haas and start worrying about AMW. AAE takes the mic from Heyman and goes off, calling both Storm and Harris ‘big dummies’, before challenging the champs to come on down to the ring.
AMW are more than willing to take him up on that and immediately charge down to the ring. The tag champs slide in and the brawl is on, Umaga pairing off with Storm, while Show brawls with Harris. Mags and Show immediately gain the advantage until … ***ERRKKK … CRASH*** The crowd completely explodes as the music of Mick Foley plays, causing Show and Umaga to focus on the entrance ramp but eventually … no Foley. The two monsters turn back around, but are soon clotheslined over the top rope by Storm and Harris! AMW taunt the two in the ring, while Ross and Lawler hype up the six man tag match also involving RVD and HBK later tonight.

{Commercials}


Backstage, Kurt Angle screams at every worker who’ll listen, demanding to know if Stone Cold Steve Austin has shown up here tonight, furious after Austin bloodied his brother last week.

In our first match up, we get a rare appearance from Spirit Squad members Mitch and Mikey who take on the Redneck Wrecking Crew, Cade and Murdoch. The crowd isn’t too into the match up since no one cares about the SS, with the two not being on TV much at all. The Redneck Wrecking Crew run right through the SS, hitting the Sweet and Sour on Mikey for the pinfall at 3:25.

Todd Grisham conducts an interview with the WWE Champion Randy Orton. With the RKO Army behind him, Orton trashes Doane, calling him a kid in appearance and a kid at heart and doesn’t stand a chance at making Orton break a sweat tonight. The Legend Killer then moves on to Edge and Backlash stating that come Sunday, he’s putting this whole situation with Edge behind him in the six man tag team match, making sure Edge doesn’t step into a ring with him with the title on the line for a long while, continuing his One Man Dynasty.

{Commercials}


In the second match of Raw, Montel Vontavious Porter has his in-ring debut, taking on the hapless Eugene. With Kelly, Layla, Brooke and Porter’s new bodyguard, Luther Reigns, watching on from ringside, MVP goes to work. Though Eugene gets his usual comedy spots in, it’s merely a matter of time before Porter finishes him off cleanly with the Playmaker at 6:54.
After the match, the beating continues with MVP and Reigns stomping away on poor Eugene. Hacksaw Jim Duggan runs down to the ring, carrying his 2x4 but Porter and Reigns don’t move. Hacksaw swings the 2x4 at Porter’s head, but MVP ducks it, and Reigns catches it, snatching it away! Luther then breaks the wood over his knee, much to the shock of the audience and Duggan. Porter then hits Hacksaw with a low blow and follows up with the Playmaker! MVP then poses in the middle of the ring with his Playgirls clapping amongst big time heat.

Backstage, inside the office of the GM, The Redneck Wrecking Crew barge in on Jonathan Coachman. Murdoch touts the recent success of the tandem, stating that it should be enough to earn the team a future shot at the World Tag Team Titles. Coach isn’t as sold on it, but does commend them on it … before stating they’ve got to make more of an impact than that to get a title shot though.

{Commercials}


SmackDown Rebound:
~ The Rock vs. John Cena - ‘For The First Time Ever’ is set for Backlash.
~ CM Punk debuts, winning a squash match.
~ Mark Henry interferes in the Lashley-Regal U.S. Title Match, taking them both out.
~ After Kennedy defeats The Miz, Batista and Flair attack the World Champion, bloodying him up before Batista plants him with the Demon Bomb.

Back from the break, JBL stands in the ring, mic in hand. The Wall Street Warrior does what he does best and talks up a storm, trashing the Intercontinental Champion Carlito. Bradshaw then states that even with the looniest, most psychotic, oversexed bimbo of all-time as a tag team partner, he’ll still manage to take home the Intercontinental Championship at Backlash.
Out comes the Women’s Champion Mickie James and Beth Phoenix (w/o music), looking none too happy. JBL and Mickie get into a bit of a war of words which ends with JBL on the receiving end of a slap to the face from Mickie! Bradshaw angrily gets into the face of James before Beth puts herself between the two, angrily glaring at Layfield. That causes JBL to smirk, before remarking that he’s got know problem popping another man in the mouth.
Before that situation escalates further, the IC Champion Carlito and Victoria sprint down to the ring and the brawl is on! Eventually, Carlito clotheslines JBL over the top rope and to the outside, while some miscommunication between James and Phoenix allows Victoria to send them both to the floor below! CCC then picks up the microphone and states that much like WrestleMania, Backlash won’t end well for JBL and instead, will end with apple all over his face. Victoria then snatches the mic from Carly and tells Mickie that payback is a bitch. The Mick swallows hard as both JBL and Phoenix scowl, before Carlito caps things off with a simple ‘Das cool’.

{Commercials}


Backstage, Kurt Angle continues to storm the halls, demanding to know if Austin has shown up, even slamming some poor bastard hard into a nearby wall.

Up next, the semi-main event, which sees The Big Show, Umaga & Shawn Michaels (w/Paul Heyman and Armando Estrada) team up to take on the World Tag Team Champions America’s Most Wanted & Rob Van Dam (w/Bill Alfonso). Strong match up, carried by the dynamic between Michaels and Van Dam. The finish comes when a distraction from Estrada allows Umaga to hit the Samoan Spike on James Storm for the pinfall victory at 10:11.
After the match, the brawl between Harris, Storm, Umaga, and Show spills to the outside. After the match, Shawn Michaels attempts to get one up on Van Dam. HBK stalks a downed RVD, looking for the super kick but once he goes to hit it, Van Dam dumps him with a back body drop. At ringside, Fonzie grabs a steel chair and tosses it into the ring, but HBK quickly intercepts it! He turns around and gets drilled with the VAN DAMINATOR!! The crowd cheers as RVD climbs to the top turnbuckle and squashes Michaels with the Five Star Frog Splash!! RVD stares down at HBK as Ross and Lawler give the hard sell for their match at Backlash.

{Commercials}


Back from the break, Maria conducts an interview with Edge, Ken Doane, Johnny Nitro and Melina. As is the custom of recent weeks, The Rated R Superstar immediately lets it be known that after Backlash, he wants nothing to do with any of the other three, but this Sunday, the three of them will head into the Phillips Arena, kick the crap out of Orton & company, and then Edge is coming for the WWE Championship. Doane steps to the mic and does a bit of a hype job for his upcoming match with Orton, stating that he’s waited to get his hands around Orton’s throat for a long, long time and is gonna make the most of this opportunity.
Edge and Doane (and Maria) then head off-camera and with them out of sight, we focus on Melina and Johnny Nitro. Melina pulls Nitro aside and tells him that this feud involving Orton, Edge, etc. has been so destructive, but yet, they aren’t/haven’t gotten anything out of it. The camera pans back out of earshot as Melina continues to talk to Nitro…

In the fourth match of the night, multi-time Women’s Champion Trish Stratus takes on Gail Kim. The two divas put on a decent match up, but in the end, it’s Gail Kim who picks up the victory, rolling up Trish in a school boy for the three count at 7:25. After the match up, Gail helps Trish up to her feet and extends her hand to her friend, which is soon accepted by Stratus to a nice pop. With Trish’s hands on her hips, Ross and Lawler wonder if Stratus still has ‘it’ with clean losses to Mickie James, Victoria and now Gail Kim on her recent résumé.

{Commercials}


Kurt Angle waits outside the arena, pacing back and forth in the parking lot … when a pickup truck pulls up! Angle goes crazy, snatching the driver out, before realizing it’s not Austin. Angle kicks the driver hard several times before storming off, back into the arena in a fury.

Up next, the ‘main event’, which sees the WWE Champion Randy Orton going one-on-one with the 20-year old phenom Ken Doane. The Legend Killer and Doane put on a strong match up, going ten or so minutes. Shockingly, it’s Doane who looks ready to pick up the win, looking for that guillotine leg drop, but Orton quickly gets up and slams into the ropes, knocking Doane down to the canvas. Orton then begins to angrily stomp away on him, over … and over … and over again, until the referee has no choice but to call for the disqualification at 10:02.
Just like last week, the ring immediately fills with everyone … except Nitro. Melina tells Nitro not to get involved as Lita yells at him to do the exact opposite. Nitro and Melina then walk off and with the 3 on 2 advantage, Orton, Masters and Mercury dominate Edge and Doane. With the two faces down, Orton rolls to the outside and grabs a steel chair. Randy steps into the ring and levels Doane with the chair, before he blasts Edge in the face as well. Lita looks on as the crowd boos Orton, who raises his WWE Championship into the air, flanked by Masters and Mercury. The three roll out of the ring and begin to head up the entrance ramp when …
***MEDAL*** hits. Out walks a furious Kurt Angle to tremendous heat and he meets up with Orton at the top of the stage. Angle and Orton share an intense stare down as Kurt glares at the WWE Title on Orton’s shoulder … before The Wrestling Machine storms toward the ring.

{Commercials}


Back from our final break, Angle paces back and forth in the ring, microphone in hand. Tremendous ‘Austin’ chants ring out as Angle angrily runs through his recent feud with Austin, the confrontation at the Royal Rumble, Angle’s move to Raw, the Stunners, the Angle Slams, Angle’s win at WrestleMania, Angle’s destruction of Ross and finally, Austin bloodying Angle’s brother last week. Angle states that there isn’t a chance in hell that he would ever give Austin the satisfaction of hearing him say ‘I Quit’, but he does plan on doing what nobody has ever done, making Austin say it. Kurt says that he’s waited all night, and finally realizes that he’ll have to wait until this Sunday to end Austin’s career. But he doesn’t have to wait much longer for payback. Angle then rolls out of the ring, and much to the chagrin of the entire arena, begins to walk towards Jim Ross. Everybody takes a deep breath but finally…
***GLASS SHATTERS*** Stone Cold Steve Austin storms towards the ring to an immensely loud ovation. Ross goes nuts as always as Angle rolls back into the ring, just as Austin slides in, and the brawl is on! Austin and Angle exchange several right hands before The Rattlesnake takes Angle down and rains down more rights! The two roll around the ring, brawling, until eventually, officials and security officers run down to the ring to break it up. They manage to get Austin and Angle separated, but not for long as Austin breaks free and tackles Angle to the ground! The two continue to brawl, rolling under the bottom rope and to the outside!
Finally, Austin and Angle are separated once more, with Stone Cold being pulled up the ramp, but now it’s the crazed Angle who breaks free, sprinting up the ramp and leaping over a couple of security guards in order to take Austin down! The two exchange more rights and lefts until they’re separated once more, with Angle being dragged up the entrance ramp and to the back, cussing like a madman.
Stone Cold regains himself before stepping into the ring and picking up the mic. Austin does a bit of a hype job for his ‘I Quit’ match with Angle before stating that this is his last Raw as a wrestler, he loves the fans and so forth, getting an incredible response from the crowd. He talks about how much he enjoyed the past seven months back in the WWE and wouldn’t give any of them back. Stone Cold then states he wants to go out on top with a win over Angle before finishing with his ‘Bottom Line’ catchphrase and toasting the crowd with a couple of beers to a monster ovation.

END OF SHOW

Friday Night SmackDown!; April 27th, 2007

Styles and Tazz don’t get to open up the program, as Michael Cole waits in the middle of the ring. He then introduces his guests for an in-ring interview, the WWE Tag Team Champions The Hooligans. London and Kendrick soon sprint out to a nice pop. Cole asks a couple of questions regarding their match with Shelton Benjamin & Gregory Helms at Backlash for the belts and L&K respond as fighting champions do, stating that they’re heading into the Phillips Arena with all the respect in the world for Benjamin and Helms, but they plan on walking out with the gold.
This of course brings out the challengers, who receive a decent pop as well, a bit shocking since they’ve yet to turn face. Helms does the majority of the mic work, saying that while he and Shelton also respect The Hooligans, he KNOWS that they’ll be the ones walking out with the gold since L&K aren’t in the same league as The Carolina Connection (credit: Alcoholic; fuck you, I like it :P). The tension picks up with both teams getting nose to nose with one another … but out comes King Booker, Queen Sharmell, Monty Brown and Elijah Burke.
Booker talks about the recent run of bad luck that his New King’s Court has been having, and the fact that it stems from the four superstars in the ring. Book then states that he wants to show his boys how it’s done and challenges either of the four in the ring to step up. L&K plan to step up but Benji quickly takes the mic from Helms and accepts the challenge.

{Commercials}

Back from the break, King Booker goes one-on-one with Shelton Benjamin with everyone involved, at ringside. Decent match up, with Booker dominating for the most part, though Benjamin’s incredible athleticism keeps him in it from start to finish. Speaking of the finish, it comes when Benji counters a potential Book End into the T-Bone Suplex! Burke and Brown leap onto the apron but so do The Hooligans and Helms, causing the New King’s Court to think the better of interfering at the ref counts the three count - Benjamin gets a shocking win over a former WCW & U.S. Champion at 9:15.
Helms steps into the ring and helps Shelton up to his feet as Brown and Burke drag Booker out of it. London and Kendrick also step foot into the ring, looking rather impressed, and extend their hands to their Backlash opponents. Helms and Benjamin look to one another before accepting the handshakes. The Carolina Connection then roughly yank The Hooligans in close into an intense staredown just two days before their anticipated WWE Tag Team Title Match.

Backstage, Steve Romero stands by with the #1 contender for the World Championship, ‘The Animal’ Batista and his manager, Mr. Money in the Bank, ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair. Per always, Naitch talks up a storm, putting over Batista and crapping all over the World Champion Mr. Kennedy. Naitch then guarantees victory for The Animal this Sunday, before promising KK and The Hardys a repeat of last week’s beat down tonight.

{Commercials}

Backstage, inside of a locker room, the United States Champion Bobby Lashley fixes up his knee pads before William Regal walks in. Regal talks as smugly as always, but soon smartens up, telling Lashley he plans on being on the same page with him tonight. The Real Deal doesn’t state much, merely saying he doesn’t trust Regal before storming off.

‘The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels and Allison Danger come out to the ring to some big heat. Daniels talks about his rematch with Cruiserweight Champion Rey Mysterio coming up in two days a bit before he introduces a video package on Chavo Guerrero, the man who’s career Mysterio will be fighting for this Sunday. The video starts off classy enough, but of course, it soon takes a turn for the worst as it shows the beating Daniels put on Chavo at the SNME before WrestleMania.
The video ends and Daniels and Danger have themselves a laugh before REY MYSTERIO sprints down to the ring, pissed. Daniels throws a right, but Mysterio avoids it, and lights Daniels up with shot after shot. Rey then clotheslines the arrogant Daniels over the top rope and to the outside, receiving a nice pop. Mysterio then shows off the Cruiserweight Championship as Daniels and Danger back up the entrance ramp, still smiling, knowing they’ve gotten under Mysterio’s skin tonight.

{Commercials}

In the second match of the night, the man whom debuted last week, CM Punk, takes on veteran cruiserweight, Funaki. Much like last week, Punk blows through his opponent, before finishing him off with the Go To Sleep, getting the pin fall victory at 3:21.

Backstage, Josh Matthews stands by with the World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Kennedy. Just like Flair and Big Dave earlier, KK adds a bit of hype to the title match at Backlash this Sunday, and ALSO guarantees a victory in two days. Kennedy finishes up with catchphrase and heads off to a nice pop.

{Commercials}

Back from the break, the audience is immediately brought to their feet as the music of The Great One blasts throughout the arena. The Rock walks down to the ring and steps in, getting himself a mic. Rock talks about his comeback at SummerSlam 2006, talking about the wonderful time he’s had since coming back. But since he’s returned, he’s seen one man dominate and intimidate like no other … John Cena. Rocky talks about Cena’s lack of respect for any and everybody, culminating in the destruction of The Undertaker two weeks ago. He then states that he’s never been a big stickler for respect and “all that crap” but Rock says he won’t be intimidated, he won’t be dominated, and more importantly, this Sunday, he won’t be beaten.
Out comes The Boss, The Doctor of Thuganomics, John Cena. Cena tells The People’s Champion that he doesn’t have to like it, but Cena is in fact the most dominant wrestler walking the face of the earth and he proved it while The Rock was making C-movies. Multiple-time WWE Champion, multiple-time United States Champion, beat Triple H, The Undertaker, Kurt Angle, Mr. Kennedy, JBL and many more. And now, he stands tops in the world, planning on running through superstar after superstar until the World Heavyweight Championship is around his waist. And if that means, beating The Rock … or taking him out, so be it.
The tension in the crowd reaches a high as Rock and Cena intensely stare into the eyes of one another before The Rock … cracks a smile. Rocky begins laughing and then mouths ‘Oh really’ before Cena mouths ‘yes’. Rock then nods … before quickly grabbing Cena - ROCK BOTTOM!! The audience explodes as The Rock stares down at the fallen Cena before taking a turnbuckle and raising his arm. Styles and Tazz hype up their first time ever meeting between the two megastars this Sunday at Backlash.

{Commercials}

Backstage, CM Punk walks down a hall, unwrapping the tape from his hands, before the ‘Notorious K.I.D.’ Kid Kash walks up to him. Kash dishes out a bit of fake congratulations to the newcomer, before stating that it’s only a matter of time before Punk goes by the wayside, just like every other new ‘awesome prospect’ that comes in. Kash states that a couple of wins over nobodies means nothing … before Punk quips back that it’s two more victories than Kash has seen recently. Kash looks on in anger as Punk walks by, getting the better of the exchange.

The third match features the United States Champion Bobby Lashley teaming up with William Regal to take on Mark Henry and Teddy Long, one week after Henry crushed them both. Decent match up, with the hook obviously being whether or not Long would get his comeuppance. That never comes to pass, however, as when it looks like Lashley is ready to do some actual damage to Teddy … Regal goes for a sucker punch!! Lashley ducks it though and then lets loose on Sir William, before clotheslining the Englishman over the top rope. Lashley turns back around … and Henry lifts him up, slamming him to the canvas with The World’s Strongest Slam! Henry then covers Lashley, pinning the U.S. Champion at 8:10.

{Commercials}

Joey Styles and Tazz run down the Backlash card, noting that a United States Title Triple Threat Match has been added to the card - Bobby Lashley defending against William Regal and ‘The Silverback’ Mark Henry.

In the rematch of a couple of weeks ago, our fourth matchup tonight sees Jamie Noble wrestle Chris Sabin. The two put on a strong match up given the time constraints. And this time, it’s Noble who manages to pull out the victory, countering a flying cross body into a rollup and a hook of the tights, getting a pin fall victory at 8:12 - the second victory he‘s stole from Sabin, his first in singles competition.

Styles and Tazz hype up our main event once more as we fade to break.

Our main event sees the World Heavyweight Champion Mr. Kennedy and the Hardys taking on ‘The Animal’ Batista, Ric Flair and The Miz. Decent match up, with Batista and Kennedy spending most of the matchup on the apron.
The finish comes when KK and Batista finally lock horns in the middle of the ring at the eight minute mark. It goes back and forth for a bit, until KK hits a nicely done enziguri on the former champ. The hot tags are made to both Matt Hardy and The Miz, and we take it home. Eventually, Naitch and Batista end up on the floor while Matt hits the Twist of Fate on The Miz! The tag is made to Jeff and he hits the Swanton, before tagging in KK, who follows up with a Kenton Bomb on Miz to finish him off at 10:49.

Kennedy and The Hardys roll out of the ring, raising their hands in victory, as Batista and Flair slide back into the ring. KK is soon handed the World Title and raises it above his head as The Animal looks on, trembling with anger. The referee helps Miz back up to his feet, causing Batista to slowly turn around, completely furious after not only losing this match tonight, but is now approaching a month without his World Heavyweight Championship. He fiercely glares at Miz, before charging and taking Miz down hard with a clothesline!
The crowd cheers at the start - it’s The Miz, who cares about his health, rit? - but that soon changes as Batista begins to hammer away down on the face of Miz over … and over … and over again with incredible brutality,
busting him open! Batista gets off of him and wipes the blood on his chest, before he leaves the ring and grabs a STEEL CHAIR! Kennedy watches on in a bit of shock as Batista slides back into the ring, chair in hand. Flair grabs Batista, telling him that’s enough for now … but The Animal shoves Flair off and to the ground!! Naitch shakes his head in disbelief as Big Dave lays into Miz with a sickening amount of chair shots, causing the former reality TV star to lie there motionless once he’s done.
The Animal then sets the chair down in the middle of the ring and lifts the bloody Miz up, setting him between his legs, before he lifts him up, planting him with a DEMON BOMB on the STEEL CHAIR!! Batista then gets up and stares down at his bloody victim, a man who he just teamed with not five whole minutes before. Both Flair and Kennedy look on in disbelief and … horror as the focus of Batista turns from Miz and back up to KK.
Kennedy looks at the World Title, and for the first time in a long time, looks to be quite a bit nervous when he stares into the eyes of Batista, the #1 contender, crazed, vicious, and focused, covered in the blood of another man as we fade out.

END OF SHOW

Raw Review:


I skimmed over both shows earlier in the week, but didn't have the time to give a review. Nice to see Michael Cole back in this thread, even if it's only on a temp basis until JR returns, which I have a feeling will be at Backlash. Cade and Murdoch get the win here in the match. However based on the how the match ended, at Backlash either Show and Umaga are becoming the champs, or somehow AMW retain the titles, only to lose them the next night on Raw. Looks like you're continuing the Hass storyline from last week. Hopefully Hass joins Estrada and Heyman, to give him some type of direction in this thread. As far as the second match goes, I won't comment on it, but just say that thankfully you kept the match short. I'm surprised that both men are even still in this thread, and haven't been released from this thread yet. Somehow the Edge/ex members of the RKO Army seem to be working together as a team. Nice name for the three divas. I remember you saying that Eugene was used in this feud, because he's the most over wrestler, not in a main program on Raw. With that said, this should be a good feud. Not surprised to see the Mickie/Beth storyline continue, as you've mentioned before that you would be continuing the storyline between the two divas. Not sure on who McKenzie is, but Sabu wins the match anyway in rather quick fashion. This was the segment of the night so far. If it was written in full, it would be even better, imo. However the buildup for Austin's final match continues to get better, with each show. Porter and Reigns working as a team, can be good, if Reigns is used as a bodyguard/spokesman for Porter. If anything, it would give Reigns some direction, IMO, in this thread. I know that you mentioned in your news post, that Michaels feels that the feud with Van Dam is somewhat a demotion, following his title match at Mania. With that said, I'm sure that the match between the two at Backlash, will be a good one, despite the fact that it will be in recapped form. Not surprised to see the Six Man Tag match being given a decent amount of time. Michaels playing the heel in this match, was well written. However with JBL getting the win over Carlito, it looks like the feud between the two will be continuing. Huge announcement from Cole and King. At first I thought that JR would be back at Backlash, but since next week's Raw is the last Raw for Austin, before Backlash, it makes sense that JR being on the show. As far as the main event match between Doane and Orton, that should be a great match. Huge match to end the show with. Not surprised to see Edge get the win over Mercury. The attack to Edge was expected. Edge gets his momentum back following last week's attack to Melina. Also, the ending adds more buildup for the huge six man tag match at Backlash.


Smackdown Review:


Excellent promo to kick off the show. I must admit, that out of all of the threads that have John Cena in them, this is the best one, with him in it. Your thread and Legend's thread with Cena in the threads are great. While the match between the two will be taking place at Backlash, I'm surprised that you're starting the feud between the two so quickly after Mania. Hopefully though, this feud becomes a long term feud between the two. Good opening match between the two teams. However not surprised that Mysterio nor Daniels are involved in the pinfall victory. Their match at Backlash should be a great one. PUNK DEBUTING TONIGHT ON SMACKDOWN IS WHAT'S UP! With the recent push of Benjamin and Helms(which by the way is an excellent tag team in this thread, IMO) have been given in this thread, it's not a surprise that they get the win in the match. However with Burke and Brown just debuting in this thread a couple of weeks ago, them losing kind of takes away any momentum they had, when they came into this thread. Like I've mentioned before in this thread, Flair as Batista's manager in this thread, is simply gold. Flair was complete in character, and made the promo excellent. Kennedy's first part of the promo though, felt a bit shaky, but soon was able to pick up. The MIZ attacks Kennedy. It makes sense, after how Smackdown started last week. Also it gives The Miz, who I'm a big fan of, a push in this thread. The Hardys make their way to the ring, and hopefully both of The Hardys get a push in this thread, over the next couple of months. Teddy Long as a heel once again, is great. Henry being given a push, is also good as well. IMO, Henry could be a great US Champion, with great booking. A feud between himself and Lashley can be great, if booked right. Not surprised to see Rock beat Finlay. However it looks like you're keeping Cena and Rock from fighting one another until Backlash, which is good booking. Despite the match announcement from Stephanie concerning next week's Smackdown, I have a feeling that Henry will still get the win, for his team. PUNK wins his debut match! Not surprised at all really, and looks like Punk will be getting a decent push on Smackdown. Batista and Flair attack the Hardys, and Kennedy beats Miz, only to be attacked for a second week in a row, by Batista and Flair. With that said, I have a feeling that Kennedy, will still be champion, at the conclusion of Backlash!

Overall Comments: Both shows were great, in that they continued some feuds, and started others. However Smackdown, IMO, was the better show on the two. The fact that the two promos on Smackdown were in full, compared to the whole Raw show being in recap form, Smackdown was just better overall, in terms of promos, matches, and progression/and/starting of new feuds for Backlash, and for Smackdown. Once again, great Raw, and an excellent Smackdown. Looking forward to the Raw and Smackdown in this thread.
