Tazz vs. Big Show: Good match to start off the show with some fast paced action. Big Show picks up the win no big surprise, Matt Hardy beating down Big Show after the match was good and a good way to bulid more tension to this fued.
Pitbulls backstage segment: Pitbulls is still bitching about not having a title shot they seem pretty much in charcter. Kurt Angle coming in was good and I like how he is showing all this agression, even to Teddy.
Simon Dean vs. Super Crazy: A filler match here just to keep Super Crazy's momentum going. Gregory Helms promo after the match was decent, I'm looking foward to the match not so much the fued.
Ken Kennedy and John Bradshaw Layfield vs. The Pitbulls: Damn good match here showing both talents of both teams. Kennedy and JBL not losing (by pinfall or submisson) was acdemic. I liked London and Kendrick running out, JBL and Kennedy vs. London and Kendrick should be pretty good.
Undertaker segment: Good promo here by Undertaker, I loved the graveyard segment and I can't wait until Kahli get's buried.
Pitbulls backstage segment #2: Once again Pitbulls complaining about not having a shot but Long refuseing to give them one. Don't know what they you will pay line meant guess I'll have to wait and find out.
Chris Beniot Vingette: Can't wait for Beniot's return.
Mark Henry vs. John Trapp: Filler match.
Batista/Henry parking lot brawl: I loved this brawl and the Henry remark after it but I can't say I'm looking foward to the match.
Teddy Long annoucment: No DQ batista vs. Mark Henry, now I'm looking foward to it.
King Booker/Finlay/William Regal vs. Kurt Angle/Rey Mysterio/Bobby Lashley: MOTN and I really liked it. Angle still showing alot of agression maybe too much. Didn't except the Angle Slam on Rey but It added more to the match, Booker picking up the pinfall also hyped up the match more.
Overall: Good Smackdown and I can't wait to read the GAB. I'm really looking foward to the Triple Threat and in my eyes Rey is face, Booker is heel, and Kurt is tweener. 7.2/10
*I'll drop a review on the GAB either Sunday or Monday

Re: WWE 2006 & Beyond by ddmrko
Opening promo was good and a lot of thought went into this. It was very realistic and a great way to make the whole night unpredictable.
The opening match was a good choice to open up the show and get the fans ready for the big match. The moonsault spot was well written and the match has a nice flow so far. I really thought the moonsault had it won. Damn Helms will win now after the match continues. OMG. I cannot believe Crazy kicked out! He kicked out again but this time it was to many times. Glad see the Vertebraker back but the end was to over booked which slightly spoilt a great match.
A great second match here but maybe overbooked again. There are too many near falls in a short space of time. The powerbomb spot was great but should have been nearer the end. A good win for the champs and I hope we see Kennedy get a good run after the team ends.
1 match that I really wanted to see is next and I loves this story line. Having them crash through the tables by missing moves was a good way to bring in some good spots. The ref getting knocked down was good also as we could see some great table spots. I knew there was no way that Hardy could Superplex Show. A predictable ending and hopefully this feuds ends and both stars have gained from it. I see Show interfering in the Main Event now.
Maybe another over booked match, I liked the kick out of the spear and then the exposed buckle was good. The Celtic cross should have finished Lashley though. Little bastard was a good edition to the match and to see him get hit with a chair was funny. The ending was very old school heelish. So good way to have Finlay win.
Hopefully the end of Khali and I like how you did not waste time on such a crappy match. You made Taker look strong and Khali look strong too. It was obvious Taker would win and I am glad he won. A good ending with Khali not falling down after the shovel hit so he chokeslamed instead.
Sabin, gets a title shot so quickly? Not sure I would have had him in a few matches before. Hopefully Sabin can be a good edition to the SD! roster.
Batista kicked out of Henrys finisher, (a lot of finishers have not got the job done tonight) an Ok match but I was not expecting anything special. The powerbomb on the ref was awesome and maybe a heel turn coming up. Well the Animal is back. A good realistic finish with the spinebuster on the steps.
Benoit is back and he will be feuding with Henry now.
I great triple threat so far and some good spots, Bookend through the table was good. I like how no one has the advantage for too long, keeps the match more interesting. I was wondering when Show would “show” up. I see the match is between Kurt and Booker and I see Batista coming out and attacking Kurt. No, Booker taping was great and a good way to keep Angle at his podium at the top of SD!
This was a great ppv as Show V Rey, Kurt V Batista are all going to happen hopefully at Summerslam
Realism: A very realistic ppv, The promos were in character and so were the commentators 10/10
Length: Good length here, 9/10
Quality / Entertainment: Very entertaining but you could have had a few promos to split up the matches. 8/10
Spelling/Grammar: Only noticed one mistake when Batista “Sticked” I think you meant Kicked Henry in the groin. 9/10
Matches/Booking: The right people won to build up feuds. But I thought Crazy should have won the CW title and Benoit did not really do much. 7/10

WWE RAW PREVIEW
July 24, 2006
The tension between D-Generation X continues to build as RAW rolls into Lafayette, Indiana this upcoming Monday Night. Last week on RAW, The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels interjected himself when it appeared that Triple H would challenge Kenny to a match. As a result HBK will take on Kenny in a one on one match this Monday. Will the young upstart defeat “The Showstopper” and prove “The Game” right or will Michaels be successful going solo on Monday?
Last week on RAW, it appeared that “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair would defeat “The Rated R Superstar” Edge and become a 17 time World Champion. Instead Flair was distracted by the music of CACTUS JACK! What will Flair have to say about these recent happenings? And will the hardcore legend Cactus Jack make an appearance this Monday Night?
In what was definitely a one of the most spectacular matches of 2006, “The Legend Killer” Randy Orton defeated John Cena. Orton used a steel chair and a couple of RKOs to bloody and batter John Cena in route to a victory. Will John Cena have revenge on his mind this Monday? Or will Randy Orton have smooth sailing until SummerSlam?
And what about this monster ABYSS? After taking out “The Big Red Machine” Kane last week, what will Father Jim Mitchell have Abyss do this week.
Also on Monday night, Trish Stratus will take on Melina to determine a Number 1 contender to the Women’s Championship. Which one of these lovely and talented divas will get a shot at Mickie James and her title?
All this and much more this Monday night on RAW at 9/8 CT.

Re: WWE 2006 & Beyond by ddmrko
Finally, after some days of delays, I"ve come to review GAB, ddmrko. Sorry I was so late, I nearly forgot. Thanks for the PM you sent me, I appreciate it. Hope this makes up for the delay...
WCW Rules' Review of ddmrko's Great American Bash
A pretty decent opening video package narrating the events in almost metaphorical ways, which is how its done! Nice jon on realism, though almost every PPV has had a Video Package like this. Decent way to count down the events, should be a blast!
Gregory Helms Vs Super Crazy:
A pretty decent Cruiserweight Opener, though you could've done more with the match. It seemed to me that the match was trying to get itself sorted out before really going anywhere, however up till the ending the match was going at a fast paced, and started moving along really well. The match was given even more time once the decision was made that Helms had his foot on the ropes. I knew right then and there that this match would be given to Helms, and after some well written manuevers and flow, Helms gains the victory and is still Cruiserweight Champion. When will his reign end?
Good match to start off the show, started a bit shaky but ended up being pretty good.
Ha, classy JBL there with the usual smart comments directed towards his opponents. You could've used Kennedy as an enhancer for the promo, but JBL is still the master! Some of his comments made me laugh, so props to you for making it entertaining.
Kennedy/JBL Vs London/Kendrick:
With a mixture of styles incorporated into this match, lets see how you did in order to make it work. This match was a physical match which pretty much used their styles and moves well. You got that done. Some of the spots were well written, and very shocking to say the least. However, it was a bit slow at times. I like the way you use the audience to convey a sense of whats going on in the ring. Anyway, the Champions retin their titles after a brutal and physical match, in which the Pitbulls come out and clear house! Should be good!
Matt Hardy Vs The Big Show:
First off, the package building into their match was decent. Now, onto the match, which is a Tables Match. A decent balance of power and speed used throughout the match with little to no dragging off. One thing I noticed is that there were many big moves involved, which can be a good and bad thing. Neither man completely held the match on for awhile, with some decent flow in between. Overall, a good competitive match with some powerful spots with the tables. Nice job using Big Show's ECW moveset as well. It really gave this match more of a Tables Match feel to it. Big Show wins to an amazing ending! The aftermatch was great, with Mysterio coming in and busting the chops to Show.
King Booker Promo:
A decent promo by King Boookaahh! The King as confident as he always is. His mannerisms weren't there, though. A little out of character at times, but overall, you got the point across in a decent manner. Looking forward to the epic Triple Threat Match!
Lashley Vs Finlay:
When I read this match, in the back of my head, I was thinking, "Not another one!" However, you managed to make a very interesting match between these two! Its just that I've read (and seen) so many of these matches, that its hard to be surprised, shocked, nor very intrigued by their matches anymore. It was a hard-hitting and very aggressive match without too much unrealistic violence going through. A great match for what its worth, but the excitement factor just isn't there for me, I guess. Finlay wins to an expected brawl!
An alright promo hyping for his big match tonight. Mysterio was a little too calm, and not determined enough it seems to get us even more pumped and by his side, but I've no doubt that the Triple Threat Match will deliver.
Undertaker Vs Khali:
Um... no.. This wasn't that great at all, to be honest. You should've given it a little more time, and I know people just can't find the effort, but try to broaden Khali's moveset just a bit to make it seem enjoyable. I know he could pull off more moves than you or the WWE gives him. Anyway, very short for a Buried Alive Match. Veryyy short! Khali was basically outmanuevered at nearly every turn with Undertaker looking very strong, and thats the end of Khali. He should've gone out with a bigger bang, I'm not like most where I blindly dislike Khali. Basically little effort to get anywhere, you could've done more for this match.
Wasn't expecting Sabin! A little bit unrealistic with helms acknowleding the existence of TNA in a mild manner on a WWE PPV, but overall it was decent. Sabi becoming a Cruiserweight contender? Who would've guessed!?
Typical Henry, which never creates a dull moment.
Further Build up to his big match, which should be nothing more than physical and brutal!
Batista Vs Mark Henry:
A very brutal and tough match between two big men competitors who can mix it up in the ring, albeit slowly and less proficient, but nevertheless, since I'm a fan of both men in this match, it seemed good to actually read what could've happened had it not been for the injury. Good job making this DQ, it suits the story and the competitors very well. Batista went all out and ballistic on Mark henry, which was a good call! Batista gets the deserving and deciding win, as he should! Looks like Benoit will have his own revenge on Henry as well.
Kurt Angle Promo:
Well, as of now, all three men have decidedly built up the Main Match of the night, and what a match it should be! Kurt Angle was in character, and counting down the events to his eventual dominance was spot on.
Mysterio Vs Booker Vs Angle:
What a match! This match flowed nicely, and although a bit sloppy, written wise, at times, it still managed to become an enjoyable match. However, there were too many interferences, and that seemed to be the central focus of the show at large. Try to refrain from that at PPVs. The interferences ruined the match a little bit, but the ending was pretty good, with Angle coming out on top, and now it seems that Angle and Batista will be against eachother at Summerslam!
Some spots were overbooked, and some matches just didn't feel right, while others were spot on. 8/10
The length was good for a PPV, though some matches were shorter than realized. Overall though, a decent job! 8/10
Some bits were repetitive while others were highly enjoyable. This whole PPV flowed nicely, and it was a very entertaining read. Hopefully you'll improve though. 9/10
Saw no major mistakes with very few errors detracting from the read. 9/10
As I stated before, some matches were overbooked while others were simply phenomonal. One match in particular was booked horribly, and you know which one that was. Other than that, no major faults. It is YOUR thread. 8/10
This GAB was pretty good, and the matches were built to near perfection. The chemistry between the Matches and the Booking decisions were spot on, though some things didn't work out as they should've. One thing I noticed was how utterly repetitive Styles' commentary got. It was so annoying with the "Oh My GAWD!" I tried to refrain from reading them. Don't do it so much. 8/10

(No Contest at 5:32)
J.R.: DAMN IT! Mickie James interfering in this match up.

Mickie lifts Trish up to her feet. Mickie shoots her off the ropes. Trish comes back and takes Mickie down with a double leg takedown. Trish starts to wail away on Mickie. Melina comes up from behind and pulls Trish off of Mickie by the hair. Melina then mounts Mickie and begins to hit right hands on Mickie. Trish pulls Melina off of Mickie as referees come to the ring to separate the three divas as we go to commercial break.
***When we come back from the break, we see Triple H walking into the D-Generation X locker room***
HHH: Shawn. Listen. There has been a lot of tension between us recently. I just want to say. That when we’re out there tonight. I got your back.
HBK: Yeah. No hard feelings.
HHH: I’m glad.
HBK: But…if you don’t mind I want to go out there by myself tonight. You don’t come down during the match.
HHH: I thought everything was straight.
HBK: We’re cool but bad things happen when you get involved. I’ll catch you later Hunter.
Michaels leaves the locker room as Triple H has a slightly angry look on his face.
***We cut to the parking lot***
A limousine pulls up to the arena. The chauffer opens the door and Vince McMahon walks out to heat from the audience. Maria walks up to Mr. McMahon.
Maria: Mr. McMahon, what do you have to say about what happened between you and your son.
Mr. McMahon: My son Shane hasn’t been returning any of my phone calls. You know Maria, there comes a time when you need to look in the mirror and accept responsibility. The problems between me and my son is only the reason of one thing. That thing is……DX! This is all DX’s fault. They’ve ruined my life and now they’ve ruined the relationship between me and my son.
Maria: Don’t you think that your ego had a little to do with it?
Mr. McMahon: Ego? MY EGO?! YOU LITTLE……wait a minute. That’s genius. Maria you’re a genius. EGO!
Vince walks into the arena with a smile on his face as Maria looks on confused.
***We cut back to the ringside***

King: I don’t know what it is but you can bet it involves DX.
J.R.: And they’re having problems of their own.
“Black Hole” hits to no reaction as this music has never been heard in a WWE arena before. Abyss (w/ Jim Mitchell) makes his way to the ring with steel chain around his right hand.

(WINNER: Abyss via pinfall at 2:12)

Abyss attempts to go back after Eugene. “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan gets in the ring and tries to attack Abyss. Abyss hit’s a clubbing punch to the face and then shoots Duggan off of the ropes and hits Duggan with A Black Hole Slam. Abyss then grunts and leaves the ring.
J.R.: My God! Last week this big son of a bitch crushed Kane’s throat. This week he just laid out Eugene and Jim Duggan.
King: This guy is scary.
***We cut to the backstage area with The Coach standing by***
Coach: Ladies and gentlemen, my guest at this time…“The Nature Boy” Ric Flair!
The audience pops as Flair comes into screenshot.
Coach: Ric, I gotta ask you how you are feeling just seven days passed from losing a match for the WWE Title?
Flair: I’m not in the mood Coach. Get to the point.
Coach: What did you think about the Cactus Jack video that distracted you in last week’s title match?
Flair: What do I think? What do I think? I think it was complete bullsh*t (Audience pops)! Typical Foley. He says he wants me! He wants me! Foley is a coward! He wont show up tonight! He wont show up next week! Its going to be video after video because Foley will never show up to go one on one! There’s nothing I can do about that. But I tell you what I can do and I‘ll tell you what I‘m GONNA do. I’m gonna find Edge and The Rated R Army and I’m gonna wear their asses out! WHOO! WHOO! WHOO!
Flair leaves screen shot to a great ovation.
“Metalingus” hits to tremendous heat. Edge and The Rated R Army (Lita, Shelton Benjamin, Chris Masters, Intercontinental Champion Johnny Nitro and Melina) make their way down to the ring. Edge grabs a microphone and prepares to speak as the fans shower them in boos.
Edge: Once again, we get screwed. How did we open the show tonight? We had pyro and explosions and then….we went right to the show. Was there any mention of my great title win last week. NO! And what about tonight’s main event. Are any of us in the main event. NO! We need to see “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels take on Kenny for the 500th time! So how do we earn respect by taking out all those who don’t want to see us succeed. It started last week with that washed up piece of crap Ric Flair (audience boos). And it continues tonight with the former, and I reiterate, FORMER WWE Champion Rob Van Dam (audience pops for RVD’s name). Van Dam you used to be considered an innovative athlete. But now you’re considered yesterday’s news. Because tonight you face the greatest athlete in the history of this business. A former Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion. Ladies and gentlemen, SHUT YOUR MOUTHS and applaud, SHELTON BENJAMIN!
The audience boos as Shelton raises his arms. “One of a Kind” blasts over the P.A. system as Rob Van Dam (w/ Joey Mercury and Carlito) walks down the ramp to a huge ovation.
Lilian: And his opponent, from Battle Creek, Michigan, weighing in at 235 pounds, ROB VAN DAM!
J.R.: Apparently RVD brought a little backup here with him.
King: Yeah but he’s still outnumbered, three to six.
Shelton Benjamin vs. Rob Van Dam
Benjamin and Van Dam grapple in a collar and elbow tie up. Benjamin uses his strength advantage to gain the upper hand and he backs Van Dam into a corner. The referee counts to four and Benjamin breaks the tie up. Benjamin takes a swing at Van Dam in the corner but Van Dam ducks and backs Shelton into the corner. Van Dam hits several forearm shots to the face of Benjamin. Van Dam then hit’s a couple of shoulder thrusts before performing a back flip and hitting a big one. Van Dam lifts Shelton up and shoots him into the opposite corner. Van Dam charges into the corner jumps up and grabs Shelton. RVD then performs a monkey flip but Benjamin land on his feet. Van Dam charges at Benjamin again but this time Benjamin catches Van Dam and hit’s a Samoan Drop. Benjamin with the cover.
Van Dam kicks out.
Benjamin lifts Van Dam up and shoots him off the ropes. Van Dam comes back off the ropes and jumps up and over the back of Shelton, whom got set too early. Shelton turns around to face Van Dam who then catches Benjamin with a standing shuffle sidekick. Van Dam drags Shelton’s prone body towards the corner. Van Dam jumps up and onto the turnbuckle and hits Shelton with the Split-legged Moonsault. Van Dam with the cover.
Shelton barely kicks out. Lita gets up onto the apron. Van Dam gets distracted by Lita. Shelton comes running at Van Dam at full speed. RVD gets out of the way. Shelton manages to stop his momentum before he crashes into Lita. Van Dam comes up from behind Shelton and hits him with a German suplex with a bridge. RVD with a cover.
Van Dam looks slightly frustrated but refocuses. Van Dam walks over to the corner and jumps up onto the top turnbuckle. Shelton gets back up to his feet. Shelton runs over to the corner and hops up onto the top turnbuckle. The crowd cheers wildly at the athleticism of Benjamin. Benjamin hits RVD with stiff right hands, trying to incapacitate him. Shelton goes for a superplex but Van Dam counters. Van Dam hits Shelton with a couple of shots to the gut and finally manages to knock Shelton off of the turnbuckle. Van Dam looks around at the crowd as Benjamin lays prone on the canvas. Van Dam jumps off the turnbuckle and hits his FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH! Van Dam with the cover.
(WINNER: Van Dam via pinfall at 12:12)
J.R.: What a huge win for…..ah hell!
Before Van Dam can start to celebrate his hard fought victory, The Rated R Army attacks Van Dam. Carlito and Joey Mercury enter the ring and a huge brawl is on. Edge, Lita and Melina are on the outside of the ring smiling as The Rated R Army begins to gain the upper hand. The audience begins to go wild as “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair comes to the ring with a PIPE in hand. Flair drills Masters right in the face with the pipe. Flair then hits Shelton and then Nitro! The crowd continues to cheer as Flair is the only one left standing in the ring. “WRECK” blasts over the loudspeaker. Flair looks angrily at the titantron as the fans cheer. Classic gruesome and bloody clips of Cactus Jack’s career begins to play. The video ends with Jack’s voice saying “I WANT RIC FLAIR!” Flair looks at the video with distain. Flair turns around and is SPEARED by the WWE Champion. Edge laughs at Flair as Edge is the only one left standing in the ring.
J.R.: For the second week in a row, a Cactus Jack video package has gotten “The Nature Boy” speared in half.
King: Flair is going to want to kill Foley. But will he ever show up?
***We return from break. Maria is standing by in the backstage area***
Maria: HI! I’m Maria and I’m back here with The Spirit Squad.
Kenny: Ken Doane.
The other members of The Spirit Squad look at Kenny with confused looks on their faces.
Kenny: Look guys. Call me Ken Doane from now on. I’m sick of being treated like a damn joke around here. I’m gonna go out there and I’m gonna kick the crap out of Shawn Michaels. Because, I’m not the showstopper. I’m the show stealer. Now can I get a “Go Get Him Ken!” on three. 1...2.….3.
Spirit Squad (unenthusiastically): Go get him Ken.
***We cut back to ringside***
J.R.:……ok. Last week, right here on the special three hour edition of Monday night RAW, we witnessed a brutal, brutal match up between Randy Orton and John Cena. Lets take you back.
***Orton and Cena are having a hell of a match. Orton has used illegal tactics the whole match but has not been able to keep Cena down. Finally, after several RKOs, a stiff chair shot and a RKO on the chair, Orton picks up the three count at 19:56. After the match Cena is battered and bloody mess***
“Burn In My Light” hits to a loud mixed reaction, probably 60/40 negative. “The Legend Killer” Randy Orton walks from the backstage area and appears on the ramp. Orton does his signature “destiny” pose as his pyro falls down. Orton arrogantly walks to the ring.
Lilian: Introducing first, from St. Louis, Missouri, weighing in at 245 pounds, “The Legend Killer” RANDY ORTON!
J.R.: There he is. Randy Orton screwed John Cena out of a victory last week. We have been told that Cena will not be here tonight due to a severe concussion he suffered last week.
King: I guess Cena learned his lesson. If Randy gives you two RKOs and spits in your face…just let it go. Or else he’ll make you a bloody mess. Ha! Ha!
“Pay The Price” hits to a decent face reaction. Charlie Haas makes his way down the ramp.
Lilian: And his opponent, from Edmond, Oklahoma, weighing in at 238 pounds, CHARLIE HAAS!
Randy Orton vs. Charlie Haas
Orton comes right at Haas and attempts a clothesline. Haas ducks the lariat and throws a succession of right hands at Orton. Haas backs Orton up against the ropes. Haas shoots him off of the ropes and catches Orton with a back body drop. The crowd cheers slightly as Haas is in control of the match up. Haas lifts Orton off of the ground and shoots him off the ropes again. This time, Haas gets set too early and Orton drills him with a stiff kick to the face. Orton then close to Haas and drills the former Tag Champion with a beautiful standing dropkick. Orton then goes down to the canvas and begins to stalk Haas. Haas slowly gets up to his feet. Orton jumps up and attempts to hit the RKO. Haas counters by shoving Orton off of the rope. When Orton comes back, Haas wraps his arms around Orton’s waist, pops his hips and takes Orton over with a perfect Belly to belly suplex. Haas lets out a scream in excitement as he has taken control once again. Haas points to the turnbuckle, which causes the audience to get louder in their cheering. Haas goes over to the corner and climbs the turnbuckle. Haas sets up top and waits for “The Legend Killer” to get back up to his feet. Orton slowly gets up and turns around. Haas jumps off the turnbuckle with a cross body but Orton jumps up and catches Haas right in the gut with a dropkick. Orton has an arrogant smile on his face as he begins to stalk Haas once again. Haas gets back up to his feet, gingerly, holding his stomach. Haas turns around and Orton drills Haas with the RKO. Orton with the cover.
(WINNER: Randy Orton via pinfall at 6:03):
J.R.: Another impressive win by Randy Orton. Whether you love him or you’re like most of America and you hate him, you have to admit that Randy Orton is one of the best in the business today.
King: He may be THE best J.R..
Orton arrogantly kicks Haas in the head. Orton then yells for Haas to get up. The fans begin to boo Orton until….“My Time Is Now” hits to a tremendously loud mixed reaction, probably about 50/50. John Cena runs down to the ring with a huge bandage on his forehead. Cena takes Orton down with a tackle and immediately begins to take big shots at Orton’s head. Orton covers up as Cena swings like a wild man. Cena lifts Orton up. Orton pokes Cena in the eye and rolls out of the ring. Orton then takes off running up the ramp. Orton stops once he’s on the stage. Cena grabs a mic from ringside.
Cena: ORTON! I want your blood (Loud mixed reaction)! And I’m gonna get it one way or another! You can’t run and you can’t hide! So listen up. I’m not cleared to wrestle until SummerSlam. So either I chase you around this arena and have you looking over your shoulder every second of the day. Or you and me can go one on one at SummerSlam…..in a FIRST BLOOD match (Loud pop)! Your call, Randy.
Orton thinks about it for a second and then very timidly shakes his head ‘yes’ which garners a huge pop from the crowd. Cena smiles as he finally gets what he wants from Orton.
J.R.: Oh my. RAW’s first match for SummerSlam has been set I guess. John Cena vs. Randy Orton in a First Blood match.
King: Orton was blackmailed into this match. This is ridiculous. Now Randy has to deal with this nut for a second time.
*Shot of Shawn Michaels walking backstage*
J.R.: Well anyway, up next, one-half of D-Generation X, “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels takes on Kenny of….
King: Ken Doane, J.R..
J.R.: Michaels vs. Ken Doane. NEXT!

Doane enters the ring and begins to warm up. The rest of the Squad looks on from ringside.
J.R.: Kenny looks ready for this match. He looks more focused than he has been his entire career for this match.
King: Ken Doane, J.R.. Not Kenny. Get it right.
“Sexy Boy” hits to a great ovation. “The Heartbreak Kid” Shawn Michaels makes his way to the ring as the fans go crazy.
Lilian: And his opponent, from San Antonio, Texas, weighing in at 225 pounds, “The Heartbreak Kid” SHAWN MICHAELS!
Michaels enters the ring as the fans continue to cheer.
J.R.: Well, I guess Triple H is going to listen to his partner and stay in the backstage area.
King: That was the stupidest move Shawn Michaels and Triple H could have ever made. The Spirit Squad have a serious numbers advantage. It could have been 2 on 5. Now its 5 on 1.
J.R.: Either way, DX is having some serious problems.
