:::The Rock, Triple H and the U.S. Champion Kane team up to defeat King Booker, Finlay and William Regal:::
:::Batista-Angle II is made for the No Mercy PPV. Contract signing tonight:::
Joey Styles:Tonight, is sure to be a great night as SmackDown emanates from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Ladies and gentlemen, I’m Joey Styles and this is my broadcast colleague Tazz and we will be bringing you a great night of SmackDown action.
Tazz: Absolutely Styles. Several blockbuster matches on tap for right here tonight.
Joey Styles: The contract signing for the biggest rematch in SmackDown history takes place tonight. Kurt Angle-Batista II, contract signing tonight. But that’s not all. Tonight, we will have a twenty man WINNER’S CHOICE BATTLE ROYAL!
Tazz: And with huge stars like The Rock, Triple H, John Cena, King Booker and Mr. Kennedy that one is sure to be off the hook.
Joey Styles: And I cant wait…the debut of “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels!! Daniels takes on the Cruiserweight Champion Chris Sabin in a non-title match!
Tazz: I’ve seen both of these guys ‘go’ before. That one is going to steal the show.
“MY TIME IS NOW!” hits to a thunderous reaction with half of the crowd loudly cheering and the other half booing wildly! John Cena makes his way onto the stage area and walks towards the ring.
Joey Styles: What a way to kick off the night. One of the newest draft picks to the ‘A’ show!
Tazz: Haha. My man. The Doctor of Thuganomics!
Cena grabs a microphone from Tony Chimel.
John Cena: Yo yo yo yo yo yo yo yo YO!
The crowd responds with a mixed reaction. Cena just coolly smiles, keeping on his trademark confidence.
John Cena: I see the Chain Gang is in full effect and we are doing big business, right here in MILWAULKEEEE!!
Crowd responds by giving Cena a cheap pop with a couple of scattered boos throughout the arena.
John Cena: That’s right the Doctor of Thuganomics is back on SmackDown baby! I see all the familiar faces. Lets see we got Tazz and Tony Chimel and…the Little Bastard???
The crowd looks confused as Cena stares at the announce table.
John Cena: Oh my bad, that’s Joey Styles.
Some members of the crowd pop while others boo Cena’s corny joke.
John Cena: Haha You know I’m only joking around Joey. But tonight isn’t about the whiny-voiced midget known as Joey Styles. Tonight, John Cena is a part of a twenty man Winner’s Choice over the top rope battle royal!
Crowd pops, anticipating the huge main event.
John Cena: I’m gonna go out there tonight and I’m throwing nineteen other SmackDown superstars over the top rope. I don’t care who I have to go through. Whether it be Bobby Lashley (cheers), Kane (cheers), King Bookaaaahhhh (boos), Finlay (boos)……Triple H (Great pop) or even…The Rock (thunderous pop).
A ‘Rocky’ chant begins and Cena waits for it to die down.
John Cena: Hell even if I have to go through…
Cena stares at the entrance ramp with a smirk as Mr. Kennedy makes his way onto the entrance ramp. The crowd gives Kennedy a mixed reaction as the arrogant superstar makes his way onto the stage area with microphone in hand. Kennedy steps into the ring and the two men have a stare down before Kennedy backs off.
Mr. Kennedy: John, John, Johnny, Jonathan, Johnnie Boy, Lil’ John. Tsk. Tsk. Tsk. When will you learn that quite frankly, nobody gives a rats ass about what you have to say.
Some of the crowd pops as other boos Kennedy arrogance. Both Cena and Kennedy smirk, though for different reasons.
Mr. Kennedy: I mean when will you learn that your 15 minutes of fame are up. I believe I told you this at SummerSlam and I’m telling you tonight, people have moved on.
Cena gives Kennedy a quizzical look as he continue.
Mr. Kennedy: Nobody cares about John Cena anymore. You’re old news. You’ve jumped the shark. There’s just no buzz about John Cena anymore.
Cena keeps his cool as Kennedy begins to run him down.
Mr. Kennedy: I mean there was a time where you were the hot commodity of sports entertainment. You were hip and cool and all that crap. You had your Chain Gang and your belt that was (puts on a kiddy voice) really, really awesome because it spins!!!
Some members of the crowd laugh as Kennedy lets out another smirk.
Mr. Kennedy: John, I’m not saying this to hurt your feelings. I mean, I don’t wanna make you cry or anything but John what I’m saying to you is…move on. I mean you’re a nice guy and all but nice guys finish last.
John Cena: Nice guys finish last, huh?
Mr. Kennedy: Yeah. I mean think about it. First, you lose the WWE Title. Then you lose to Randy Orton. TWICE, mind you. Then you get drafted to SmackDown. Whoa. Whoa. I know what you’re saying, ‘Its good to be back on the flagship show’ but John, you’re also on the same show as Mr. Kennedy.
Crowd gives another mixed reaction.
Mr. Kennedy:…Kennedy. I mean you’re boring enough on your own. But you lose all semblance of being entertaining when you stand next to me.
Cena smirks as Kennedy continues on.
Mr. Kennedy: Quite frankly, that’s enough about you.
Kennedy turns his back on Cena and faces the ‘hard’ camera.
Mr. Kennedy: Tonight, yours truly, will be in the Winner’s Choice Battle Royal. And I got to tell you that I’m a little disappointed that I will not be able to challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship, once I WIN the battle royal.
The crowd gives a mixed reaction as Cena leans against the ropes, listening to Mr. Kennedy ramble.
Mr. Kennedy: So since I cant wrestle for the World Title because the shaved ape Batista and our paper champion Kurt Angle will be wrestling for the title at No Mercy. I’ve decided that the poor bastard that I will face will be…the United States Champion, KANE!!!
The crowd responds with shock at the gall of Kennedy to potentially take on The Big Red Machine.
Mr. Kennedy: That’s right and that means at No Mercy, in front of my hometown, of GREEN BAY, WISCONSIIIINNN, I will become the United States Champion!! Now say it LOUD, say it PROUD. MIIIISSTTEEERRRRRR KENNEDYYYY!!!
Kennedy turns around to face Cena.
Mr. Kennedy: KKEENNEEDDYY!!!!
Cena applauds Kennedy, seemingly impressed with his speech. He extends his hand to Kennedy in approval. The arrogant superstar responds by shaking his hand but suddenly Cena lifts Kennedy up onto his shoulders and then HITS HIM WITH THE FU!!! The crowd gives Cena a mixed reaction as his theme plays once more. Cena takes his shirt off and throws it on top of Kennedy before he leaves the ring.
Joey Styles: What a raucous way to kick off SmackDown! What an FU that was!
Tazz: For the second week in a row, Mr. Kennedy’s mouth has gotten him and trouble and he’s received an FU for his efforts. And both of these guys will be in the Winner’s Choice Battle Royal.
Joey Styles: That’s gonna be huge but coming up next, Matt Hardy takes on Chavo Guerrero. Big match up coming up next.
The crowd gives a good pop as Chavo Guerrero makes his way down to the ramp. Chavo plays to the crowd before entering the ring as Tony Chimel makes the ring introduction.
Joey Styles: Last week on SmackDown, Matt Hardy teamed up with Rey Mysterio to pick up a win over The Pit Bulls. After the match up, Matt Hardy and Chavo Guerrero got into a scuffle after Chavo made a compliment about Mysterio. I don’t know about you partner but Hardy’s behavior has been pretty erratic recently.
Tazz: I’ll agree with that. Matt has shown a more aggressive streak as of late but you know what? Sometimes you got to get a little more fired up to get your message across and I like that Hardy’s doing that.
“Live For The Moment” hits to a pretty positive response, though there are some scattered boos, due to Hardy’s more heelish behavior recently. Matt Hardy makes his way onto the stage area and makes the ‘V1’ sign before he continues on his way down to the ring. Chimel makes the ring introduction as Hardy and Chavo square off.
Chavo Guerrero vs. Matt Hardy
Match Summary: Hardy and Chavo cut a fast pace in this match as they both go all out to pick up a win. Both superstars wrestle a clean match, relying on brawling and mat wrestling in an attempt to pick up the victory. Hardy is in control of most of the match up but doesn’t dominate as Chavo holds his own. Finish: Chavo makes a full fledged comeback, hitting Hardy with hard right hands, backing him up into a corner. Chavo then climbs the turnbuckle and starts to hit him with ten punches in the corner. Hardy grabs Chavo and charges out of the corner hitting him with a POWERBOMB. He covers him. 1... 2... NO! Hardy waits on Chavo to get up to his feet, waiting to hit his finisher. Chavo gets up and Matt gets ready to hit The Twist of Fate! Chavo pushes him off and kicks Matt in the gut once he comes back. He then delivers the THREE AMIGOS knocking Hardy out! Chavo climbs to the top turnbuckle and leaps off of the top, looking to hit the Frog Splash. Hardy rolls out of the way and Chavo crashes and burns into the canvas! Hardy quickly gets back up to his feet and waits on Chavo. Guerrero gets up and Matt hits him with the SIDE EFFECT! He then lifts Chavo back up to his feet only to take him out with the TWIST OF FATE!!! The cover. 1... 2... 3!!!
Winner: Matt Hardy via pin fall at 7:32.
The crowd pops as Hardy picks up a good win over a decent name. Hardy celebrates as Chavo gets back up to his feet, holding his head after all the high impact moves. Guerrero extends his hand to Hardy, a sign of respect. Matt looks at the crowd and they respond by giving him a great pop. Hardy then brushes right by Chavo and exits the ring! The crowd is shocked but soon respond with boos, showing their distaste for the blatant disrespect shown by Hardy tonight. Chavo shakes his head inside of the ring as Matt continues towards the back.
:::We cut to the locker room of King Booker and his Court.:::
Booker is not wearing his crown or his robe as he talks to Finlay and Regal.
King Booker: Listen, tonight is some serious stuff. Tonight could change everything. You dig what I’m sayin’? Now, all three of us are involved in the Winner’s Choice Battle Royal. So here’s the plan, the two of you are gonna go out there and you’re gonna help me win this thing. Ya dig? And once I win it, I’m gonna request a three on one, handicap match with The Rock.
The crowd gives a mixed reaction, cheering for The Rock’s name, booing the idea of a handicap match. Regal nods but Finlay seems to be more upset.
Booker, Regal and Sharmell stare at Finlay in shock.
King Booker: You didn’t just say that! Somebody tell me, you did not just say that!
Finlay: You can get as pissed off as you want but that’s not what’s going to happen. You see, I’ve been listening to the talk in the locker room. Everybody is so proud and happy to have Triple H on SmackDown.
Pop for Triple H.
Finlay: All the boys in the back talking how tough he is. Talking about how bad he is. Let me tell you something, if me and Mr. Helmsley were to ever step foot in this ring together, one on one, you better believe that I’d have him squealing like a pig in seconds.
Crowd boos as Booker gets upset.
Finlay: So when I win the battle royal tonight, its going to be Finlay versus Triple H! And then we’ll find out who the real badass around here is! My name is Finlay….and I’m gonna snap Triple H’s neck!!
Finlay storms out of the locker room as Booker looks on upset.
Joey Styles: Everybody has their own agendas heading into our huge main event. Its gonna be great.
Tazz: I’ll tell you something else that’s gonna be pretty damn good. Our next match up.
Joey Styles: Coming up next, Shelton Benjamin with Gregory Helms in his corner takes on Paul London with Brian Kendrick in his corner. An extremely athletic match up, NEXT!
We return from the break inside of Matt Hardy’s locker room.
Rey Mysterio barges in and gets in Hardy’s face.
Rey Mysterio: What’s your problem, man?!
Matt Hardy: I don’t have any idea of what you’re talking about.
Rey Mysterio: I’m talking about you disrespecting Chavo like that. I don’t know what’s going on with you but you need to start showing people around here some more respect.
Hardy pauses but then starts laughing.
Matt Hardy: I need to start showing some people some more respect?! Hahaha! That’s a damn joke. Let me get this straight, I get choke slammed off of a ladder through a table by The Big Show and I need to show more respect?!
Hardy starts to get more upset.
Matt Hardy: Somebody who was supposed to be my friend, refuses to give me his spot at SummerSlam so I can gain my revenge and I need to show more respect?!
Mysterio hangs his head, knowing that Hardy is talking about him.
Matt Hardy: That same person not only LOSES that match to The Big Show but gets his ass kicked for TEN minutes straight and I need to show more respect?!
Hardy gets face to face with Mysterio now.
Matt Hardy: Last week, right here on SmackDown, I do all of the work, I hit the Twist of Fate and YOU pick up the win! And now I need to show more respect?!
Mysterio goes to explain but Hardy continues.
Matt Hardy: You’re a f*ckin’ joke! Get the hell out of my way!
Hardy storms out of his own locker room as Mysterio looks on, somewhat shocked at Hardy’s tirade.
:::We cut back to ringside.:::
*AIN’T NO STOPPIN’ ME, NOOOOWWW*
Shelton Benjamin & Gregory Helms make their way down to the ringside area. The crowd gives them some pretty decent heat as both athletic, yet arrogant superstars make their way to the ring. Chimel makes the ring introduction.
Joey Styles: Last week on SmackDown, these two gentlemen picked up a huge win over the tag team champions.
Tazz: In my opinion, that’s gotta make them the #1 contenders and a win over Paul London by Shelton Benjamin here will definitely cement them as the top contenders for the titles.
“London Calling” hits to a good pop. The WWE Tag Team Champions The Hooligans, Paul London and Brian Kendrick, sprint down to the ring at full speed. With Ashley by their side, London and Kendrick slide into the ring as Chimel makes the ring introduction.
Joey Styles: Our extremely athletic tag team champions have to be a bit miffed by this new set of challengers. They’ve never faced a team with this level of athleticism.
Tazz: This should be a great one on one contest man. Two of the best athletes in the WWE going one on one here.
Shelton Benjamin (w/Gregory Helms) vs. Paul London (w/Brian Kendrick & Ashley)
Match Summary: Benjamin and London tear it up, putting on a great, tremendously athletic contest. The two agile superstars go toe for toe with each other as Gregory Helms, Brian Kendrick, Ashley and the SmackDown audience watch the incredible contest as London and Benjamin give it their all. Finish: At the seven minute mark, Benjamin and London hit each other with simultaneous clotheslines, knocking each other out. The referee gets up to a count of seven before both guys get back up to their feet. Benjamin and London exchange right hands before Shelton cuts London off with a kick to the gut. He then shoots him off of the ropes only to have London come back and take him out with a spinning wheel kick! Both guys get back up to their feet and London hits him with a dropkick! Benjamin once again gets back up to his feet. This time London takes him down with a DROPSAULT! London with the cover! 1... 2... He kicks out. London lifts Benji up to his feet and hits him with a couple of hard forearms before shooting him into the corner. Benjamin shows his incredible amount of athleticism by LEAPING UP TO THE TOP TURNBUCKLE. He then leaps off and takes London out with a beautiful cross body! Shelton has the cover. 1... 2... London kicks out! Benjamin lifts him up to his feet and prepares for the T-Bone! London hits him with hard elbows, fighting with all his might to avoid the finisher of Benjamin. London breaks the hold and then shoots off of the ropes. Benjamin throws a kick but London catches his foot. He spins Benjamin around and Shelton hit’s the DRAGON WHIP! Cover. 1... 2... No! London barely kicks out once again. Benjamin lifts him up to his feet as the crowd has really gotten into this match up. He shoots London off the ropes but he holds on! Benjamin charges in and London dumps him over the top rope! Benjamin lands on the apron but London thinks he has fallen to the London with a HARD BULLDOG!!! Cover. 1... 2... 3!!!
Winner: Shelton Benjamin via pinfall at 9:12.
Joey Styles: What a match up! Shelton Benjamin picks up the win!
Tazz: That was a hell of a match and now you got to consider Benjamin and Helms the #1 Contenders for those tag team titles.
***Vignette plays hyping the debut of a new superstar: “’The Fallen Angel’ Christopher Daniels comes to SmackDown!…NEXT!.***
:::We then cut to a shot of a hallway with the Cruiserweight Champion Chris Sabin walking down the hall.:::
Joey Styles: Ladies and gentlemen, the debut of The Fallen Angel. Christopher Daniels is NEXT!!!
Joey Styles: Before we go to Josh Matthews, huge match added to the No Mercy Pay Per View. On October 8th, The Hooligans defend their WWE Tag Team Championship against Shelton Benjamin and Gregory Helms.
Tazz: That should be a classic, in my opinion.
:::We return from the break with Josh Matthews standing by.:::
Josh Matthews: Ladies and gentlemen, my guest at this time, he will be competing in the Winner’s Choice Battle Royal, “The People’s Champion” The Rock!
The Rock comes into screenshot, receiving a thunderous ovation from the crowd.
Josh Matthews: Rock, we are just…
Rock puts his hand in Matthews face and the crowd erupts! The crowd begins a “ROCKY!” chant as The Rock begins.
The Rock: FINALLY… The Rock has come back to MILWALKEEEE!!!
Thunderous cheap pop.
The Rock: Tonight’s the night. Tonight’s the night, that The Rock throws nineteen other jabronis right over the top rope and wins the battle royal!!
Another great pop for The Rock.
The Rock: Lets see, who’s out there tonight? King Bookah.
The Rock: Let The Rock get us straight, you and your Court wanna come at The Rock. You three pieces of trailer park trash honestly think that you can eliminate The Rock? IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK!!!
The crowd pops as The Rock gets intense.
The Rock: The only thing that matters is once everyone is thrown out. Once all the dust has settled, once all the smoke….has cleared. The Rock will be standing tall, hand raised, at the end of the night and The Rock will be saying one thing. ‘King Booker, JUST BRING IT!’
Another loud ‘ROCKY!’ chant starts up.
The Rock: Who else is out there? Huh? Oh that’s right……Mr. Kennedy…Kennedy. Let The Rock explain something to that goofy-haired, stuttering, son of a bitch!
The Rock: Kennedy, is doesn’t matter how many times you say your name! It doesn’t matter that your undefeated! It doesn’t matter that your breath smells like 2 year old Green Bay cheese! The only thing that matters is that tonight The Rock promises, to layeth the smacketh down all over that CANDY ASS!!!
Another great pop.
The Rock:…ASS! Lets see who have we got left. The Rock talked about Booker and Finlay. The Rock talked about Kennedy. Who’s left? John Cena (cheers). Kane (cheers). Bobby Lashley (cheers). Rey Mysterio (cheers). Matt Hardy (mixed reaction)…
“The Game” Triple H comes into screenshot, receiving a great pop. Hunter smirks as The Rock takes his shades off, upset Triple H interrupted his promo.
Triple H: Rock, the fact is that you probably are going to eliminate all those jack offs in that match. But guess what? You ain’t getting rid of me.
Triple H: I am The Game and I promise you this, I’m going to win that damn match! Now you can spit some more nursery rhymes and you can raise your eyebrow all you want. But when it comes right down to it, everybody knows that when The Game and The Rock get into this ring, Triple H always comes out on top.
Another mixed reaction.
Triple H: And as for Finlay, ha…my wood…
Hunter raises his hand to show his sledgehammer.
Triple H: Is bigger than yours.
Crowd laughs as Rock keeps on the same face.
Triple H: Finlay, if we were to ever do go one on one, I’ll prove to you that not only am I the baddest thing on this planet, I’ll prove that I am The Game and I am that damn good!
Crowd pops as Rock looks confused.
The Rock: (mocking Triple H) I am The Game-ahhhh!!! Gonna whip your ass in the middle of the ring-ahhhh!! (Back to normal voice) You still do that crap!? It doesn’t make you sound tough, it makes you sound constipated.
Crowd laughs as Triple H fumes.
The Rock: But don’t you worry, The Rock is gonna take care of that constipation problem by taking his foot and STICKING IT STRAIGHT UP YOUR CANDY ASS!!
Thunderous pop with a few scattered boos from Triple H fans.
The Rock: IF YA SMELLLLLLALALALALAOOO…WHAT THE ROCK IS COOKIN‘!
Rock and Hunter stare each other down.
:::We cut back to ringside:::
The music hits and the crowd gives a good pop. The WWE Cruiserweight Champion Chris Sabin makes his way to the ring, slapping hands with the fans. Tony Chimel makes the ring introduction as Sabin enters the ring.
Joey Styles: Up next, Chris Sabin takes on Christopher Daniels. The debut of The Fallen Angel. NEXT!
Tazz: Its going to be off the hook!
“Disposable Teens” hits to a decent reaction as many people in the arena know of him. “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels makes his way onto the SmackDown stage for the first time, dressed in his trademark robe and towel on his head. Daniels continues on his way to the ring as Sabin stares at him with disgust. Daniels enters the ring and removes his entrance attire. Chimel makes the ring introduction as Sabin and Daniels warm up.
Joey Styles: There he is. The newest superstar on our roster.
Tazz: Chris Sabin has called this man a cancer. I don’t know bout all of that but I will say this. He’s one of the most talented wrestlers in the world and its great to have him here on SmackDown!
Cruiserweight Champion Chris Sabin vs. “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels
Non Title Match
Match Summary: Just like the first two matches on the show, this is damned good match. Both former TNA wrestlers show the WWE crowd what the X-Division was all about. The two great wrestlers battle at an extremely fast pace with Daniels surprisingly wrestling a clean match, which shocks the commentators and the fans, after weeks of hearing Sabin call him a cancer. We pick up the action after another commercial break. Finish: Sabin charges in at Daniels in the corner and The Fallen Angel counters, hitting him with a boot to the face. Daniels charges out of the corner and Sabin catches him with The Sabilizer, a Ura-nage into a backbreaker! Cover. 1... 2... Daniels kicks out. Sabin lifts Daniels to his feet and attempts to shoot him into the ropes. The Fallen Angel counters the Irish whip but sends Sabin into the corner. Daniels charges in, going for a dropkick of sorts but Sabin moves and Daniels gets hung up in the corner!! Sabin charges in and hits him with a Hesitation Dropkick to the face of The Fallen Angel!!! Cover. 1... 2... NO! Daniels kicks out once again. Sabin lifts him up to his feet and then hit’s a couple of forearms before attempting a clothesline, Daniels ducks the lariat and goes behind. He attempts a German suplex but Sabin lands on his feet. Daniels turns around and Sabin attempts a clothesline. The Fallen Angel counters and hits him with the STO!! Instead Daniels points to the corner, calling for the Best Moonsault Ever! He springboards off of the turnbuckles twice and attempts the moonsault. Sabin rolls out of the way and Daniels crashes and burns! The crowd stands and applauds as both men give it their all. The referee begins his ten count as both tired superstars begin to stir. Sabin and Daniels make it back up to their feet and exchange right hands. Sabin gains the better of the exchange backing The Fallen Angel up into the ropes. He shoots him off of the ropes but he gets set early. Daniels tucks Sabin’s head and goes for the Angel‘s Wings! Sabin fights out of it and puts Daniels on his shoulders, hoping to hit the Cradle Shock! The Fallen Angel fights out of it and hits him with a hard forearm to the back. Daniels then shoots him off of the ropes. This time Daniels gets set too early and Sabin catches him in a Small Package! 1... 2... 3!!! Daniels kicks out but its after the three count!!
Winner: Chris Sabin via pin fall at 12:42.
The crowd gives the two men a standing ovation for the incredible match they just gave. Daniels looks at the referee and motions with his shoulder, saying he wasn’t down for three. The ref says he was and raises the hand of Sabin. Daniels gives Sabin an evil glare before exiting the ring and walking towards the back.
Tazz: That was an absolutely incredible match! That’s the type of athleticism that you can only find on SmackDOwn!
Joey Styles: It was an unsuccessful debut for Daniels but is it just me or was The Fallen Angel a good sport about it?
Tazz: I think he was. I think Sabin might have over exaggerated the bad qualities of Daniels. He’s a great competitor and he seems like a decent enough guy.
:::We cut to the backstage split screen of Batista/Kurt Angle:::
Batista is dressed in a suit and Angle is dressed in casual wear, World Heavyweight Title on shoulder, as they walk down a hallway.
Joey Styles: This is gonna be explosive to say the least. it’s the contract signing for the biggest rematch in SmackDown history: Kurt Angle-Batista II.
Tazz: Contract signing, NEXT!
We return from the break with a table in the middle of the ring, with two mics and two chairs. Six security guards populate the ring as well. Teddy Long is in the middle of the ring, microphone in hand and begins to speak.
Teddy Long: Quite frankly, their match at SummerSlam was awesome, Both great warriors gave it everything they had but in the end, Kurt Angle retained his World Heavyweight Championship.
Teddy Long: After the match, I and all of you great SmackDown fans thought we were seeing a great show of respect from Batista when he shook the hand of Kurt Angle. Instead, we sat a heinous attack by The Animal, who abused Kurt with chair shot after chair shot.
Heat from the crowd until they begin a “WE WANT ANGLE!” chant.
Teddy Long: Batista wanted it. Kurt wanted it. And you, the SmackDown fans wanted it. So therefore the match has been made. No Mercy, October 8th, Green Bay, Wisconsin, the biggest rematch in SmackDown history will take place. Kurt Angle-Batista 2!!! Holla! Holla! Holla!
The crowd erupts in anticipation of the match.
Teddy Long: Its time to get this contract signing underway. First, the challenger…
Crowd immediately begins to boo.
Teddy Long: From Washington, D.C., “The Animal”, ladies and gentlemen, show your love for… BATISTA!!!
“I Walk Alone” hits to a tremendous amount of heat. “The Animal” Batista makes his way to the ring, skipping the posing and fireworks, all business tonight. Batista enters the ring and he then takes his suit jacket off, followed by his shirt and waits on Long to continue.
Teddy Long: Dave, listen, I don’t want any physicality between you and Kurt tonight.
Batista doesn’t acknowledge Long, staring straight ahead at the entrance ramp.
Teddy Long: And now the champion, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the former Olympic Gold Medalist, ladies and gentlemen, show you…
Batista snatches the mic.
Batista: Kurt Angle, GET YOUR ASS OUT HERE!!!
The fans pop wanting to see Angle before…
“Medal” hits to a raucous ovation, the loudest of the night so far. The World Heavyweight Champion Kurt Angle makes his way down to the ring, skipping his posing and fireworks just like Batista did earlier. Angle, with title belt on shoulder, slides into the ring and the security guards immediately get in between the path of The Wrestling Machine and The Animal. Long tries to calm the situation, talking both Batista and Angle down. Batista backs up and smiles at Angle, saying he doesn’t pose a threat…right now. Angle sits down in the chair and Batista soon follows.
Teddy Long: Kurt, you are the champion so if you have anything to…
Batista: I’ll go first.
The crowd boos and Angle gets pissed as Batista interrupts.
Batista: January 10th, was the night that I had to relinquish MY World Title! That was the night that I gave up everything in my life that I worked my ass off for. The championship that I had scratched and clawed and bled and sweat for, for over nine months! And it was all taken away from me in a second. But that was a great night for you, wasn’t it Kurt…
Angle shakes his head “yes”.
Batista: Yeah. I’m sure it was. That was the night that you became the biggest paper champion in the history of the business.
Crowd boos as Angle gets upset.
Batista: You won a damn battle royal to win the title. You’ve gotta be..
Kurt Angle: PAPER CHAMPION!!??
Batista: Paper Champion.
Kurt Angle: While you were sitting on your ass, whining about a tiny tear in your arm. I was beating Mark Henry at the Royal Rumble! While you were sitting on your ass at your house, complaining about the bad hand dealt to you, I was beating The Undertaker at No Way Out! I was beating Randy Orton at WrestleMania. I was beating Rey Mysterio and King Booker at The Great American Bash. Paper Champion? The last time I checked, I beat your ass at SummerSlam.
Thunderous pop as Batista smirks.
Batista: Yeah. You beat me…with a roll up. That makes you tough? Huh? That makes you the man around here? I don’t think so. That belt is mine and everyone here knows it.
Batista: More importantly than that…you know it. You got lucky Kurt. For all your bragging, for all your big talk, you can’t convince yourself that you’re better than me. I’m better than The Undertaker and badder than Mark Henry. I wouldn’t tap out to your Ankle Lock and you couldn’t pin me with the Angle Slam. You…got…lucky.
The crowd boos and Angle gets upset. Batista picks up the contract and Teddy Long hands him a pen.
Batista: But Kurt, lightning never hit’s the same place twice. And come No Mercy, your luck will run out. I’m not gonna pin you with a f*ckin’ roll-up! There’s gonna be decisive decision. Demon Bomb. One… Two… THREE!
Batista signs the contract and put it on the table. He then takes the pen and flings it at Kurt Angle! The crowd ‘ohs’ as Angle watches the pen hit his chest and fall on the table. Angle picks up the pen and signs the contract. Batista smirks as the match is made official. Then unexpectedly, Angle LEAPS OVER THE TABLE AND JUMPS ON BATISTA!!! The Wrestling Machine wails away on his No Mercy challenger with hard rights. The security guards quickly step in and drag Angle off of Batista. The Animal gets back up to his feet holding his face as security drags Angle up the ramp. Both Batista and Angle look incredibly pissed. Teddy Long tries to talk Batista down as Angle is being held back by six security guards. Batista grabs a mic from off of the table.
Batista: ANGLE! ANGLE! Watch this!!!
Suddenly, Batista KICKS TEDDY LONG IN THE GUT!!! The Animal gets him set and POWERBOMBS HIM THROUGH THE TABLE!!! Long lays among the broken pieces of the table as the security continues to hold Angle back. Several referees run down to the ring and Batista slides out having done the damage.
Joey Styles: OH MY GOOOOODDD!!
Tazz: I don’t believe what we have just seen. Batista just gave our General Manager a Demon Bomb through a table ! That’s just sick!
Joey Styles: Teddy is out of it. He’s really, really out. Lets get some help out here.
Several EMTs run down to the ring as we cut to another break.
