Re: WWE 2005: The Aftermath of WrestleMania 21
Raw for February 13th:
*Highlights from last nightís Main Event is shown*
*Break It Down hits and out comes DX to a bunch of heat*
Jim Ross: Welcome everyone to Monday Night Raw, live from the Bell Centre, here in Montreal, Quebec, Canada! Iím Jim Ross and Iím joined by Jerry Lawler! King, last night at No Way Out, Shelton Benjamin and AJ Styles cheated to remain the champs, Triple H defeated The Rock, thanks to Smackdownís John Cena, and Shawn Michaels defeated Kurt Angle to become the new World Heavyweight Champion!
Jerry Lawler: But JR, you have to remember what took place last night following HBKís match.
Jim Ross: Yeah, that was definitely an interesting situation to say the least.
*HBK has the mike in hand, as the ďYou Screwed BretĒ chants have already started*
Shawn Michaels: Yeah, keep it up! I want to hear this. Let me soak this in!
*The crowd continues to jeer Michaels*
Shawn Michaels: You guys done?
Shawn Michaels: Well you know what, it was nine years ago, and if I had the chance, Iíll do it again!
*Crowd chants once again*
Shawn Michaels: A little over 24 hours ago, I defeated Kurt Angle, to become a 5 time World Champion!
*More jeers at Michaels*
Shawn Michaels: WrestleMania 22 is less than six weeks away! Right in my home state of Texas! And you know what, Iím walking into Houston as the champ, and Iím leaving Houston, still with the Heavyweight Championship still around my waist!
Shawn Michaels: For the past couple of months, Iíve been the victim of these weird messages. These crazy sayings. All of this mayhem. Well you know what? Iím still here. Last night, another message, but for me, hereís a message to that person. Iím Mr. WrestleMania! Iím the headliner! The main eventer! The Showstopper! The Icon! The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels, and I will give you a show youíll never seen befÖ
*Hitman hits and the crowd goes ape and pop for the sound of the Hitman! However itís seen in the ring, that it was a rouse, as all of DX is on the mat laughing*
Shawn Michaels: Ha, you all fell for it. Each and every single one of you fell for it! Hook, line, and sinker!
*Crowd jeers Michaels once again*
Shawn Michaels: And if Bret were to show up here tonight, Iíll do what I did, nine years ago, right here in this very arena! And thatís take his pride, his honor, his dignity, and his respect! Tonight though, Kurt, Rock, Naturals, we are going to show you why D-Generation X, is indeed the best there is, best there was, and the best that will ever be! We are D-Generation X!
*Break it Down hits once again as the crew leaves to a bunch of heat*
Jim Ross: Well tonight, eight man tag action will take place, but coming up next folks, Rhyno, will defend the newly restored European Championship in a rematch from last night against Nova!
Jerry Lawler: This will be one match that you donít want to miss!
Jim Ross: Welcome back folks to Raw!
*Lillian does the introductions*
Match 1-European Championship:
Rhyno(c) v. Nova
Both men are given a decent amount of time, as these two once again put on a great match, this time without all of the hardcore moves and elements. A lot of false finishes are seen in this match, as both men are determined to put on a good match for the fans. Nova, goes for the Kyrpotonic Krunch, but Rhyno counters it with a modified Facebuster. Rhyno then nails the Gore to finish the match off at the 7:57 mark!
Lillian Garcia: The winner of the match, and still the European Champion, Rhyno!
Jim Ross: Rhyno picks up the win in this hard fought rematch against Nova!
Jerry Lawler: Nova couldnít get the job done, now two nights in a row.
Jim Ross: Well letís send it over to Todd Grisham who is with the number one contender for the Womensí Championship, Victoria!
Todd Grisham: Thanks JR. Well Victoria, last night at No Way Out, you defeated Smackdownís Jillian Hall, in an Interpromotional match for the right to face Melina for the Womensí Championship at WrestleMania 22, in less than six weeks in Houston. Tonight though, you will be facing Alexis Laree in a one on one match. What are your thoughts on this match and your Royal Rumble rematch with Melina at Mania?
Victoria: Todd, last night, I proved a point. I proved that it doesnít matter whether youíre from Raw or youíre from Smackdown, I will beat you! Melina, at the Rumble, you had your night. You beat me. 1-2-3! But rest assure that when Mania comes, Iím going to give you a side of me, that no other diva has ever seen in their lives. Melina, after Mania, I will be the NEW Womensí Champion! As for tonight, Alexis, while you are very talented, tonight, you will be an example, to what I am going to do Melina Perez, at WrestleMania 22!
*Victoria then laughs with an evil look on her face, before leaving*
*We see Alexis getting ready for her match, which is up next*
Jim Ross: Well Victoria, seems to be back to her crazy ways. But will that be enough, to defeat the up and coming and former Womensí Champion, Alexis Laree?
Jerry Lawler: Weíll find out, when we come back!
*Outside shot of the Bell Centre is shown, as some of the sponsors for this portion of Raw is being announced*
*Lillian does the introductions*
Victoria v. Alexis Laree
Fast paced diva action is what we have here, as two accomplished divas put on a very entertaining wrestling match. Both divas hit their big moves, and Alexis almost has the victory, but misses on the moonsault. Victoria quickly gets on the rebound and nails the Widowís Peak on Laree, ending the match at the 8:01 mark!
Lillian Garcia: The winner of the match, Victoria! MT-8:01
*Victoria then looks at Alexis, and picks her up, and knocks her down with a clothesline. Victoria though starts to yell ďGet up MelinaĒ at Alexis. Alexis gets up and Victoria nails the Widowís Peak once again on Alexis. Victoria screams, itís mine Melina, itís mine! Victoria leaves the ring with a sadistic look on her face, while the ref is checking on Alexis*
Jim Ross: Victoria is crazier than a pet coon. King, this is Raw, but Melina better be careful when she steps in the ring with this nut job.
*A shot of Victoria is seen up at the top of the ramp, and sheís laughing and smiling about what has taken place*
Jerry Lawler: Look, JR. The woman has gone mad!
*We cut into Jonathan Carterís room. We see him and Mr. McMahon are talking, but thereís no audible.*
Jim Ross: Well folks, Jonathan and Mr. McMahon will be out here later on tonight, but coming up next, Stone Cold Steve Austin will be out here to speak about last night, and some other matters. Weíll be right back!
Jerry Lawler: Welcome back to Raw, here live from Montreal!
*Glass Shatters hits and out comes Stone Cold Steve Austin to a huge pop*
Jim Ross: The Bell Centre is on their feet for the rattlesnake! Stone Cold is here!
*Austin gets in the ring and does his usual four corners salute, before grabbing a mike and speaking*
Stone Cold: Last night at No Way Out, I did exactly what I said I was going to do! I whipped Ken Kennedyís ass all over Edmonton, and walked it dry. Well, I will admit, that Kennedy is also one tough s.o.b., that got a good shot with that chair last night across the face of the former 6-time WWE Champion! However, thatís not the reason that Iím out here. WrestleMania, is the showcase of the immortals. Well, Iíve been thinking, look at my WrestleMania career! Mania 12, I beat Savio Vega. At 13, Canadaís golden boy, Bret HartÖ
*Bret chant starts up*
Stone Cold: Thatís right, me and him put on a classic match that is remembered as one of the best matches of all time. At XIV, I beat the now current champion, Shawn Michaels, to win the title. At XV, the next year, I did the same thing, only to The Rock. Two Years later right in Houston, I unleashed hell and partnered up with the proposed Devil, Mr. McMahon, and beat the living hell out of The Rock again, to win the title. At X-8, I beat Scott Hall, in an easy match. At XIX, finally The Rock beat me. However, when I look at, I see one thing missing. Then I look at a man, who has beaten Snuka, Bundy, Jake, Gonzalez, Diesel, Sid, Kane, twice, he beat Kane twice. The late great Big Boss Man, The Game Triple H, A-Train, and Big Show, and even that punk, and current WWE Champion over on Smackdown, Randy Orton! All at WrestleMania! A record of 13-0! However, what a fitting way to go out, than two Texans going at it! And actually me defeating him and breaking his immortal legacy! So, this is the deal. Taker, Iím calling you out. No, better yet, Iím giving you a week. So next week in London, whatís itís going to be! Thatís right! I want you, and I want you at WrestleMania 22! See you next week, Deadman!
*Glass Shatters hits once again and Austin stares at the camera, before leaving to a mixed and stunned crowd*
Jim Ross: Stone Cold wants to face and beat The Undertaker at WrestleMania 22!
Jerry Lawler: However will the Undertaker accept the challenge?
Jim Ross: Well folks, itís been a wild and crazy night, and itís only going to get even crazier. We still have a big eight man tag match coming up later on tonight. However coming up when we come back Rob Conway is going to be taking on Gregory Helms. Weíll be right back!
Jim Ross: Folks, welcome back to Raw. Remember next week we will be live in London, England for Raw. The return of both Matt Hardy and Edge.
Jerry Lawler: We havenít seen any of them since the Royal Rumble in January when Matt nailed the Side Effect to Edge and both went crashing into the sound stage and suffered multiple injuries, to the face and body. Fortunately none of them suffered any burns. Well, next week they will be returning to Raw!
*Lillian does the introductions*
Rob Conway v. Gregory Helms
The match is basically a dud match, as neither man can really get the crowd into the match. Both men do nail some of their signature moves, however to little or no fanfare from the crowd. Finish of the match comes when Conway connects with the Conís Way Out on Helms. Conway makes the cover, and scores the victory at 7:13 mark.
Lillian Garcia: The winner of the match, Rob Conway! MT-7:13
Jim Ross: Rob Conway picks up the victory here in this contest.
Jerry Lawler: Well folks, as you all know, WrestleMania is 41 days away.
*We cut to the hallway and we see Raw General Manager, Jonathan Carter, and WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon heading to the ring entrance. Well it looks like these two will be coming out here when we come back to discuss next week, and the Raw side of WrestleMania 22!*
Jerry Lawler: Welcome back to the show folks.
Jim Ross: In case you missed last nightís No Way Out, here is the newest WrestleMania 22 commercial. We hope you enjoy it.
**Note: The following is a paid advertisement for WWE WrestleMania 22! Live! Sunday, March 26th, 2006, from the Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas! Only on PPV!**
Jim Ross: Hello fans, I am Jim Ross!
Tazz: And Iím Tazz! Welcome to the Raw vs. Smackdown All Star Football Game here in Houston, Texas!
Jim Ross: Itís going to be 11 of the best from RawÖ
Tazz: Against 11 of the best from Smackdown.
Jim Ross: Letís go down to WWE Chairman, Mr. McMahon who is with the Raw captains, Triple H, Kurt Angle, and Shawn Michaels! As for the Smackdown captains, itís JBL, Randy Orton, and Booker T!
Vince McMahon: Thanks JR. Gentlemen, the rules have already been explained. Now Raw will have the choice of calling the coin in the air.
JBL: Wait a minute, Vince. Why in the living hell does Raw get the chance to choose it in the air, when Smackdown, showcases the man who has single handely changed Friday Night Television, the man who has the longest reigning title run in the last 10 years, and the person who is not just a regular man, a man who is not a mere mortal, but a man, who is indeed a true Wrestling God! Why?
Triple H: Shut up, JBL. This may be Texas, but damn it, Raw is the superior brand. The home to the King of Kings. The home to the man who kicked your ass back at Summerslam, in your own hometown. You call yourself a Texas great, but you donít lift a finger towards Keith Von Enrich, Shawn Michaels, or even the beer geezer himself, Stone Cold Steve Austin!
Vince: Gentlemen, calm down.
Randy Orton: Wait a minute. As much as Iím enjoying this, I must say, that this city of Houston, is filled with a bunch of ingrates, and a bunch of common no good rednecks. Where as in St. Louis, the town that birthed a true legend. Me! The Legend Killer, Randy Orton.
Shawn Michaels: Randy, you claimed to have killed all of the legends, but thereís no bigger legend than I, myself, the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels! The Main Eventer, the man who was headlining events when you still were in elementary school!
Booker T: Woah, suckas! Houston, is the place where I grew up in! The city, where anything can happen, like when I win the WWE Championship at WrestleMania next month!
Randy Orton: What did you say?
Booker T: You heard me!
Kurt Angle: Iíve had enough of this crap!
*Kurt pokes JBL in the eye*
*Hunter laughs until being hit by Booker*
Booker T: Thatís for screwing me at Mania X-9!
*Booker and Hunter go at it*
Shawn Michaels: Legend kill this!
*Shawn drops Orton with Sweet Chin Music*
Vince McMahon: All hell has broken loose!
*The Masterpiece music hits and out comes Chris Masters*
*Chris slowly makes his way over*
Carlito: Chris, youíre taking too long, move out of the way*
*Rockís music hits and out comes The Rock who nails a right hand at JBL*
*Soon all of the men have made their way out from the brands, as well as the divas, and are going at it*
Jim Ross: Itís extreme!
Tazz: Hey, thatís my line!
Jim Ross: So!
Tazz: Come here!
*Tazz takes JRís hat, and the two go at it. Tazz runs but slips on the floor. JR somehow locks on the TazzMission on Tazz, before stopping and going to get a beer. But Tazz, gets up and charge at JR. Both men wind up colliding into each other*
*We cut back to the middle field, where Show and Kane are throwing everyone through the tables. All of a sudden, Takerís music hits*
Undertaker: Welcome to WrestleManÖ
*Real American hits and out comes Hulk Hogan, who is immediately hit with a superkick from Michaels*
Shawn Michaels: Go home Hogan!
Vince: WrestleMania, where anything canÖ
Austin: Hey VinceÖ
*Austin stuns Vince as everyone begins to drink some beer*
All: And thatís the bottom line, causeÖ
*Everyone says their own Austin phrase*
Austin: Oh hell no!
*Everyone begins to brawl as the clip comes to an end*
*No Chance hits and out comes Jonathan and Vince to a bunch of heat*
*Both men walk into the ring and Vince speaks first*
Mr. McMahon: Why, thank you. Youíre too kind!
*More heat on both men*
Mr. McMahon: Anyway, Iím out here to announce that starting next week on Raw and Smackdown. We will be having ourselves, a bunch of matches in elimination tournament style. There will be three matches from each brand. The winners of the matches will go to WrestleMania 22! They will be competing in the second ever Money in the Bank Ladder Match!
*huge pop from the crowd*
Mr. McMahon: The Money in the Bank winner will have a guaranteed title shot for either the World Heavyweight or WWE Championship at any time and any place within the next twelve months from WrestleMania 22! That will last all the way until even up to WrestleMania 23!
Jonathan Carter: What an announcement Mr. McMahon. Now, next week as you all know, Raw will be live from London, England!
Jonathan Carter: However, next week, Shawn Michaels, you will defend the World Heavyweight Championship against Kurt Angle in a rematch from No Way Out!
*Huge pop from the crowd*
Jonathan Carter: Also, next week Edge and Matt Hardy will be making their return after being out for the past months, due to the result at the Rumble last month. Next week, the Intercontinental Championship will be on the line as Rob Van Dam takes on Triple H!
*Huge pop from the crowd*
Jonathan Carter: Finally, we will hopefully find out an answer to Stone Cold Steve Austinís proposal to the Undertaker for a match at Mania!
Vince McMahon: WrestleMania is 41 days away. Jonathan, Smackdownís Main Event is the WWE Championship Match, between the WWE Champion, Randy Orton, and the 2006 Royal Rumble Winner, Booker T! Jonathan, whatís yours?
Jonathan Carter: Well, Vince, trust me, when I say, that it will be something that the people will never forget for the rest of their lives. Speaking of which, may I please ask Ric Flair to come down to the ring!
*Space Odyssey 2000 hits and out comes Ric Flair in a nice tan-gold suit to a nice pop*
Jonathan Carter: Alright, Ric, Iíve called you out here because youíre going to address why you did what you did to the American Dream, Dusty Rhodes a couple of weeks back.
*Ric looks at Carter with an angry look*
Jonathan Carter: Guys, roll the clip.
*Space Oddessy hits and out comes the Nature Boy Ric Flair, to a huge pop from the crowd*
Ric Flair: Whooo! The Nature Boy is here and Mean Gene itís good to see you. Here we got the whole crew. The Hardcore Stunt Legend Mick Foley. The Immortal Hulk Hogan. The American Dream, Dusty Rhodes. The Legend, Double A, Arn Anderson. But back to the American Dream. Itís been awhile.
Dusty Rhodes: Well, you know something Ric, it has been.
Ric Flair: You see Dusty while you were at the studios about five minutes here, working with about 150 people, twice a month, I was all over the world, styling and profiling my way across the board. And I was woohing with all the ladies!
Dusty Rhodes: Flair, I want you to realize something. And realize something quickly, me and you have had our history. We have beaten the living hell out of each other, but that was then and this was now. Lets move on.
Ric Flair: Alright.
*Flair puts his hand out. Rhodes shake and the two embrace and hold their hands up*
Mean Gene: What a sign of respect, these two have for each other. Once bitter enemies, now a group of one.
*Flair out of nowhere clocks Dusty. Dusty tries to fire back, but is hit with a low blow. Flair proceeds to bust open the American Dream. Flair picks up a steel chair and whacks Dusty with it. Flair goes ape on him, and then knocks down Mean Gene who tries to help him, as Flair leaves the ring with a sick smile on his face*
Jim Ross: What the hell did Dusty do to Ric?
Jerry Lawler: JR, I am completely shocked as what we have just witnessed here.
*We cut to the ring, where Dusty is a bloody mess, and the tape ends*
Jonathan Carter: So, whatÖ
Ric Flair: Well you know something, seeing Dusty up there, reminded me of how much better of a wrestler I was than that no good piece of fat crap. The cage matches that me and him all over the NWA and WCW, were classics. Not because of the big lard, but me. The sixteen time, wooo, Heavyweight Champion of the world! You know, Dusty, you call yourself the American Dream, well Iím the American Legend. You and me used to go all out for it, during Fall Brawl! Whether it was the Horseman, NWO, or whatever, I kicked ass! So, what Iím saying, Dusty, is me and you, at the biggest stage of them all! WrestleMania! What do you say? Since youíre not here, tonight, Iíll give you two weeks to decide. Live, when weíre in Madison Square Garden! Thereís you explanation!
*Ric leaves to a bunch of pops from the crowd*
Mr. McMahon: Well, before we leave, let me announce that on Saturday, March 11th, from Conseco Fieldhouse, Saturday Nightís Main Event will be returning. Next week on Smackdown, I will be announcing some of the matches. Remember, this is the WWE. The Power is Back!
*No Chance hits and both men smile and leave the ring to a bunch of mixed reactions*
Jim Ross: My god, what a bunch of announcements. The return of Saturday Nightís Main Event to NBC. Money in the Bank II at WrestleMania! Now, the chance of an old-school classic, when Dusty Rhodes has the option of facing off against the Nature Boy Ric Flair!
Jerry Lawler: This night is getting extremely crazy for me.
Jim Ross: Well when we come back Muhammad Hassan will be taking on Batista!
*Lillian does the introductions*
Muhammad Hassan v. Batista
Power match is what this can be described as both men use their power and technical skills to put on a good match. However after 13 minutes of going at it, Batista nails the Batista Bomb to end it for Hassan at the 13:11 mark!
Lillian Garcia: The winner of the match, Batista! MT-13:11
Jerry Lawler: Batista looks to be apart of Mania, but in what shape or form?
*We cut to the back and see DX in a small pep talk. Michaels is revealed in his outfit, and surprisingly has on black and pink.*
DX: If they Montreal ainít down with this, we got two words for yaÖ
DX: Screw U!
*DX then leaves and head to the ring, as we go to commercials*
Jim Ross: Welcome back folks!
*Lillian does the introductions*
Main Event-Eight Man Tag Match:
DX vs. Angle/Rock/Naturals
In an exciting main event, all hell breaks loose, as all eight men go at it, in this great matchup. Finishers galore are hit, and at the end, Michaels steals one over The Rock, after nailing a low blow followed by Sweet Chin Music. Michaels gets the cover and W at the 19:04 mark.
Lillian Garcia: The winners of the match, DX! MT-19:04*
*Oddly though, Shawn is the only person left in the ring. All of a sudden the lights start to blink. The ring shakes. A voice is heard, saying the time is now! Then just like that, a guitar chord is heard. Followed by another, and another. The lights then begin to turn pink and white. Then it hits. ďHitmanĒ blasts throughout the arena. The crowd is on their feet. Finally after five seconds, Bret ďHitmanĒ Hart emerges from the curtain! Michaels is stunned beyond belief. The crowd is popping for Hart like crazy! Michaels just stands there as Hart enters the ring, and gets in the face of Michaels*
Bret Hart: Thatís right, Shawn! It was me all along! The messages, the mind games. The notes! Right here, we stand here in Montreal. Iím out here, for revenge. Youíre the World Heavyweight Champion. I donít want just the title, I want to humiliate you.
*The Way I Am Hits and out comes Jonathan Carter to a bunch of heat*
Jonathan Carter: What a surprise this is! I canít believe my eyes. Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels in the same ring. Well, well, well! Next week, the title will be on the line as HBK faces Angle. However, Bret, the winner of the match, will defend the title against you at WrestleMania 22!
*huge pop from the crowd*
Jonathan Carter: Bret, put it there.
*Bret shakes Carterís hand, before Carter leaves*
*Bret turns around, and Michaels goes for Sweet Chin Music, but misses. Bret takes Michaels down, and locks in the sharpshooter on Michaels, in the center of the ring. Michaels tries to break the hold, as he almost gets to the ropes. But Hart pulls him back to the center of the ring. Michaels finally taps out, but Hart doesnít let go, as Hart finally lets go of Michaels. Bretís music hits once again, as he stands over Michaels with the title in his hands. The show ends, with confetti falling over Bret from the ceiling, as Bret Hart is back in the WWE!*
