Re: WWE 2005: The Aftermath of WrestleMania 21
Smackdown for February 10th:
Louisville, KY-Freedom Hall
We open the show with pyro and crowd signs and video. Theodore Long is in the ring and then welcomes the crowd. Long then proceeds to turn the viewer’s attention to the tron and see the highlights of last week’s main event. The video is shown. Long then goes back to the finish. Long then calls out Chris Jericho. Long then calls out Billy Kidman. Long then finally comes to a conclusion that both men hit and fell at the same time. Long then strips Kidman of the United States Championship. Long then says the title is vacant. However, both Chris Jericho and Billy Kidman will fight in a best of seven series with the winner becoming the Undisputed WWE United States Champion. Matter of fact, next week on Smackdown live from the Calgary Saddledome, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, match one will take place. Long then leaves the ring with the belt and both men going face to face with one another, as we cut backstage.
Backstage we see Victoria heading to the ramp. We see a graphic that shows Victoria vs. Michelle McCool. That match is up next.
We’re back and Victoria and Michelle put on a great opening match, especially for the divas. Victoria picks up the victory after nailing the Widow’s Peak on Michelle and winning at 9:33, quite long for a diva’s match. Victoria turns around and is taken down by Jillian Hall. Jillian nails a swinging neckbreaker on Victoria. Jillian turns around and sees Melina with the Womens Championship on her shoulder up at the main entrance with the crowd looking on. We now know it will be Jillian vs. Victoria, this Sunday at Raw’s No Way Out, with Melina being at ringside for that match.
*We cut backstage and we see Shane McMahon. Shane McMahon tells Steve Romero, that next week his father will be in Calgary and will be delivering a huge announcement concerning WrestleMania 22. Shane then turns the subject to Petey Williams. Shane then says that Petey is going to see a side of him, he hasn’t seen before. Shane leaves as we cut to commercials*
We come back and now see Shane and Petey go the distance with both men not backing off at all. Petey counters Shane at almost every single move. Shane does the same. The match finally comes to an end as Shane is hit with the Canadian Destroyer by Williams. Williams makes the cover and gets the three count at the 13:25 mark.
Williams leaves as Shane slowly gets up and then leaves to a great ovation. We cut backstage to Christian who is saying that he is going to be the show stealer of WrestleMania. We then see Booker T who looks at Christian and smiles. Christian then plays to the crowd, putting over himself and claiming “That’s How I Roll!” Christian then leaves as we see Christian vs. Booker T is going to be next.
Booker T and Christian put on a great match, with both men showing some good chemistry in the ring. Match comes to an end, with Christian picks up the surprise victory over Booker with the THIR at the 14:22 mark. Christian becomes estatic that he has won while Booker can’t believe it. All of a sudden Orton comes out and shows a video of Booker, in all his losing glory and tells him that it will happen once again at WrestleMania. Booker then gets up and stares down Orton as Christian is now backstage. We then cut to the back where Carlito is with Josh Matthews. Carlito says that he has heard that next week, Jeff Hardy, CM Punk, and Juvented Guerrera will be facing off in a triple threat match, with the winner facing me at WrestleMania for my Television Championship. Well, that’s not cool, says Carlito. Carlito then leaves as we see a surprise come at the door. It’s Hulk Hogan! Hogan comes to the ramp and we’re going to hear from Hogan when we come back.
Hogan goes on and on with the fans cheering him with everything he does. Towards the end of his promo, a video appears on the screen. In it, it says “The time is near for all things to be brought to light. Hogan, you did this. Not me. In two weeks, I will be making my appearance. Hogan, soon we will finish this. The video ends and Hogan has a stunned look on his face, as the crowd doesn’t know what is going on. We cut backstage to John Cena who rips all over the city, and then once again threatens Rock, by claiming after Triple H is finished with him, then the real hell will begin when he deals with Rock on his own. Cena then turns his attention to Orton and tonight’s main event. Cena then tells Orton, that his time is up and then leaves as we see Brock Lesnar preparing for his match against Kane which is up next.
Brock and Kane put on an average match and both men stray away from a plain and dull big vs. big match. Both though hit their finishers, but it’s Brock who comes out at the end on top after nailing a devsating F-5 a second time on Kane. Brock gets the cover and W at the 11:32 mark.
We cut backstage and we hear that next week Juvented Guerrera will be facing Kid Kash. Psicosis wishes Guerrera luck, but after Psicosis leaves, Guerrera has a huge smirk on his face.
*Raw Rebound is Shown*
*No Way Out rundown is shown*
We come back to the sold-out show, and our main event is upon us, with John Cena challenging Randy Orton. Solid match up with both men working a great mat based match. Finish comes with Orton going for the RKO, but Cena nailing the F-U on Orton and scoring the victory at the 15:00 mark. Cena then sees Booker T who is laughing at Orton and then Orton stares at Booker. Orton screams at Booker, “This is mine!” Booker stares at the WWE Championship as the show comes to a close and Booker has a huge grin on his face!
**Note** Yeah, I know it's been a little bit over a week and a half since I posted a show, but as we all know, that Life>Booking. No Way Out preview will be up within the next couple of days. No Way Out will be up by no later than March 25th. 1!
