Re: WWE 2006 by Renegade™
XCel Energy Center
St. Paul; Minnesota
Cole: Welcome everyone to the sold out XCel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota for what is going to be a wild night Tazz! We are on the road to No Mercy, with the No Mercy Tournament finals continuing tonight, two of the four quarter finals matches will take place tonight with Chris Benoit taking on Finlay and Undertaker facing his old nemesis JBL!
Tazz: Cole it's gonna be a huge show. And that's only the start of things to come tonight my man, we are going to see MNM and the FBI meet in a Ladder Match with a contract to face America's Most Wanted at No Mercy dangling above the ring!
Cole: That will be huge partner, and we are also going to be adressed by Paul Heyman regarding what happened last night at RAW's PPV Unforgiven when he and half of the SmackDown! locker room tried to intervene and bring the Hardcore title to our show, only for none other than Stone Cold Steve Austin to resurface after a month off and cleaned house, saving the day for RAW
Tazz: In other words, we've got the goods tonight Cole!
*Paparazzi* hits to heat as Mercury & Nitro storm to the ring without Melina and forgoing the usual snapshots from the photographers, ready for a fight here to kick off the show
*Fully Blooded* plays and Vito & Chuck Palumbo head to the ring to even bigger heat. They get into the ring and are met by MNM, and we are underway in our first match of the night
Briefcase contains contract to face AMW for Tag Titles
MNM vs Vito & Chuck Palumbo
A very good match to kick things off tonight, with the crowd seemingly siding with MNM here as they place a more face role than the FBI. Things start off wildly early on with the two teams brawling, before MNM go high risk and nail in stereo Vaulting Body Presses onto the FBI. Mercury & Nitro now take ladders and both go for the belts, only to be stopped halfway up by the FBI. What follows is a mix of average spots, nothing too over the top, although it is still enough to get the crowd getting loud including Nitro Sunset Flip Powerbombing Palumbo off the ladder to the mat! Mercury is almost able to grab the case when his ladder is tipped and Mercury falls off, straddling over the top rope groin first!
Vito brings another ladder into the equation which backfires on him as Nitro counters a Suplex attempt, DDT'ing Vito onto the ladder! MNM try to get the Snapshot on Vito, but Palumbo saves him with a Jungle Kick to Mercury! Palumbo now climbs the ladder, with Nitro climbing up the other side and the two reach the top, beginning to trade right's, with both men wobbling, but neither falling. Then, both men reach up and grab the briefcase at the same time and yank it off, with both men losing their balance as they do this and both Nitro & Palumbo crash to the mat below and the briefcase comes down with them, all four men are down and referee Charles Robinson calls for the bell
Winners @ 16:34 - ???
Robinson tells Tony Chimel something, and Chimel grabs his mic, announcing
Chimel: Ladies and gentlemen, the referee has informed me that due to the case being taken by a member from each team at the same time, this match is a draw!
Cole: Well then who's facing America's Most Wanted at No Mercy? These four men put their bodies through fifteen minutes of hell for a draw?
Tazz: That ain't right Cole, something will have to be done about this!
Cole: Both teams will claim they won it, but in the end, neither has!
Both teams slowly make their recoveries and are helped backstage as we go to a break
We return and see Steve Romero standing by with the World Heavyweight Champion, Kurt Angle
Romero: I am standing here with the World Heavyweight Champion, Kurt Angle!
Pop for Angle as he steps into view
Romero: Kurt, you were not originally scheduled to compete tonight, yet you have requested a match against anybody in the locker room willing to accept the challenge. May I ask why?
Angle: It's simple Steve. Paul Heyman has this whole No Mercy tournament set up going on, and while this happens, he sees it fit to rest me from competing, week in and week out so I don't run the risk of injury before the "big" match at No Mercy with whoever wins this tournament. Now the way I see it, there is no way that I, an Olympic Gold Medalist and the current World Heavyweight Champion, am going to sit on my ass, twiddling with my thumbs waiting to find out who I'll face at No Mercy without being in peak condition for my match and my opponent. Therefore, tonight I am challenging anyone backstage who wants a match, I mean a real match, to come out and get one, because I'll be out there and I'll be expecting some competition. And when I get it, I'll make them tap like I'll do to the unlucky winner who gets to face me at No Mercy. It's true, it's damn true!
Angle walks off and Romero sends it back to ringside
Cole: Well Tazz what a treat for the fans tonight, an unexpected match featuring Kurt Angle, the World's Champion, tonight!
Tazz: I wonder who's gonna accept the invite Cole. There's so many possibilities!
Cole: Well it seems like we are set for one of the two No Mercy tournament matches taking place tonight!
*I Love to Fight* hits to heel heat as Finlay makes his way to the ring, wielding his trademark Shillelagh in his hands. Finlay places it down in one of the corners and awaits his opponent
*Whatever* hits and the crowd erupts with a big pop as the "Rabid Wolverine" Chris Benoit walks out, raising his arms to another good pop. Benoit gets into the ring and raises his arms up again
No Mercy Tournament Quarter Final Match
Chris Benoit vs Finlay
Very good technical encounter between these two veterans of the squared circle. Benoit was all over Finlay in the early going, trying to slap the Crossface on and working on the shoulder of Finlay, but a distraction of Little Bastard running across the ring as Benoit went to put the Crossface on Finlay, caused Benoit to lose his concentration for just a moment, which was enough for Finlay to take control of Benoit and wrestle him at his own technical game, trying to work on the neck area of Benoit. Finlay gets Benoit up, going for the Celtic Cross, but Benoit is able to counter with a rollup 1.....2..kickout! Finlay swings a shot at Benoit, trying to stay in control but Benoit ducks it and takes Finlay down with a German Suplex! Benoit hits the Trifecta of German's to Finlay, and then ascends the top rope, connecting with the Diving Headbutt! Cover 1.....2...NO! Finlay gets a foot on the ropes! Benoit looks to lock the Sharpshooter on Finlay, but Little Bastard gets up onto the apron. Benoit walks over to the leprechaun and tries to swat him away, and referee Jimmy Korderas tells LB to get off the apron, as Finlay takes the Shillelagh in hand and clobbers Benoit on the back of the leg with it! Benoit falls to the mat and Finlay desposes the weapon to the outside and calls the ref over for the cover 1.....2...NO! BENOIT KICKS OUT! Finlay is shocked, and the crowd erupts. Finlay grabs Benoit and goes for the Celtic Cross again, but Benoit rolls through it and instead of rolling Finlay up, locks the Crossface on! The crowd pops as Finlay is locked in the dreaded hold in the center of the ring, and has no choice but to TAP OUT!
Winner @ 13:42 - Chris Benoit
Advances to Semi Finals
Benoit has his hand raised to a big cheer from the fans, he raises his arms up, knowing he's one step closer to the chance to meet Kurt Angle at No Mercy
Cole: Chris Benoit has done it! He overcame Finlay's cheap tactics, the Little Bastard and the Shillelagh, but Benoit is now in the Semi Finals of the No Mercy tournament!
Tazz: That was classic wrestling at it's best Cole, two of the best performers inside the squared circle going all out tonight, and Benoit deserves the win, I'll give him that!
Cole: We've still got alot of action to come folks, and already we've been treated to two great matches tonight.
Backstage now and Chris Jericho is standing by with Kristal
Kristal: Chris Jericho, tonight you team with Brock Lesnar to take on the team of Bobby Lashley & Batista, how are you feeling about being paired with the man you will face next week in the No Mercy tournament, knowing the previous history between yourself and Lesnar?
Jericho: To be honest with you Kristal, it sucks. I mean, why would you throw the Ayatollah of Rock and Rollah, the first Undisputed Champion of this company, into a match with three guys that are single handedly keeping the steriod companies in business? It's not exactly smart. Especially when you pair me with the guy who assaulted me repeatedly over the summer on the road to Summerslam? I don't get it, honestly I don't. But, for all the Jerichoholics in the audience tonight...
Mixed reaction for Jericho, who's face turn seems to be coming
Jericho: I will go out there, I will work with the roid rager against his pill poppin' buddies. But if Brock Lesnar sets a foot wrong, then Y2J won't be held responsible for walking out.
Kristal: Over the past few weeks there has been some growing tension between yourself and JBL, would you care to comment on the situation?
Jericho smirks and pauses for a moment, stroking his chin before speaking
Jericho: It's simple. JBL is jealous. Jealous because what he has achieved, cannot amount to the success I have had and will continue to have. So what if he invests on the stock market? I'm the lead singer of one of the most successful rock groups around in Fozzy. So what if he's a best selling author? I could sit down, crap on about my boring life in some book and put my picture on the front of it and people would flock to by it!
Pop from the crowd
Jericho: And as for JBL's "Great" run as WWE Champion, well let's look back and see if we can remember one time, and I mean one time, where he didn't use his re-incarnation of the Village People to save him in his matches. Can you think of one? Cause I sure can't. And then look at me. I was the FIRST Undisputed Champion of this company. I beat Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock in one night! Now how many people can say they've done that?
Jericho pretends to think about his own question before continuing
Jericho: O that's right, me. So JBL, junior, take a long hard look at yourself before you try and compare yourself to me. Because flat out, I'm better than you'll ever be.
Y2J looks into the camera for a moment, then walks off and we go to a commercial
We return to the arena and *Extreme* fills the sounds to big heat as the General Manager of SmackDown! Paul Heyman makes his way to the ring, flanked by Randy Orton & Booker T. Heyman looks far from happy as as takes a mic and gets into the ring, looking into the crowd
Heyman: Will you people please show some respect when the General Manager is about to adress you?
More heat from the fans
Heyman: It was my plan to come out here tonight a happy man. It was my plan to come out here with a new acquisition, a new Championship for SmackDown! in the Hardcore title. But...
A loud *Austin* chant begins which seems to annoy Heyman who frowns at the mention of Austin
Heyman: Yes, go on, chant his name...
The *Austin* chants get louder, and turn into *We Want Austin* chants, although he is a RAW superstar
Heyman: But everything I had planned out, fell apart. It was faltless, it was foolproof, yet, thanks to an unexpected appearance by Stone Cold Steve Austin, the plan do not turn out so impressive.
Heyman: And now instead I stand in this ring, in this God awful city...
Heyman: And I can only find it in myself to feel dissapointed. Because as much as I place the blame on Stone Cold Steve Austin, he wasn't the only person that ruined the plan on Sunday. No, no, there was another. And his name is none other than Hardcore Holly!
Crowd is surprised to hear this
Heyman: If he had just accepted the plan, if he had just learnt his role, none of this would've backfired. So, Bob Holly, I know you're here tonight, please, come to the ring and explain yourself to me...
*How Do You Like Me Now* hits and Hardcore Holly walks to the ring, looking less than impressed with what Heyman is saying
Heyman: Well Bob, do you have anything to say for your down right stupidity of question my decisions on Sunday?
Holly tilts his head as if to say "Are you serious?" and shakes his head at Heyman
Heyman: Well then maybe you just need some sense beaten into you...
Just like that, Orton & Booker T attack Hardcore Holly, knocking the veteran down from behind and stomping away at him. They bring Holly up and Booker kicks him in the midsection, then rebounds off the ropes and connects with a Scissors Kick to Holly! The crowd is giving loud heat for this as Orton now brings Holly up and drills him with an RKO! Heyman gets on his knees, by a downed Holly's side and grabs him by the head
Heyman: Let this be a message to Stone Cold Steve Austin and Mick Foley! You get on my bad side, and very bad things begin to happen. Austin, on Sunday when you got involved in what originally didn't concern you, you got on my bad side. And Mick Foley, the moment you allowed Rhyno to appear on this show weeks ago and take the Hardcore title back, you too got on my bad side. So take this as a warning for the both of you. I am coming to RAW on Monday, and there are some things that need to be discussed, men to men!
With that being said Heyman, Booker & Orton leave the ring to loud heat from the fans
Cole: What a dispicable act from our General Manager Tazz! He got his goons Randy Orton & Booker T to punish Hardcore Holly for refusing to cheat his way to a match he could win in his eyes.
Tazz: Well Cole, Boby Holly's job was to bring the Hardcore title to SmackDown! and he didn't get it done. Paul Heyman is simply laying down the law to anyone who gets on his bad side, once you're there, you're gonna pay!
Cole: And now Heyman says he's going over to RAW on Monday! Why?
Tazz: That my man, I have no clue about.
We return, to the top of the second hour of the show, as *Longhorn* plays to heat as John Bradshaw Layfield steps out of his limosuine that is driven on stage. JBL takes one look at the crowd then heads to the ring
JBL gets into the ring and takes off his hat and tracksuit top, awaiting the arrival of the Phenom. It takes a few moments after JBL's music dies down to build the suspense, before *GONG* and the crowd goes wild as *Graveyard Symphony* begins to fill the sounds and Undertaker saunders to the ring slowly as always. Undertaker stops on the ring steps and commands the lights to turn back on before proceding into the ring and taking off his hat, rolling his eyes back, while JBL doesn't look too comfortable facing Taker tonight
No Mercy Tournament Quarter Finals
Undertaker vs JBL
Very straight forward slug fest between these two brawler like big men, with both men bringing some hard hitting offense to take it to the other. Undertaker used his presence to stay ontop early, before JBL snuck a low blow with the ref's back turn and began to pound down on Taker. JBL tried to hit the Clothesline From Hell, but is met by a Big Boot from Taker! Taker then rebounds off the ropes and drops a leg to JBL 1.....2..kickout. Undertaker now takes JBL by the arm and heads upstairs, walking the top rope before leaping off with Old School to JBL! Taker now signals for the end of JBL, who staggers his way back up and Taker scoops JBL up, going for the Tombstone, but JBL slips out the back and shoves Taker into the corner, accidentally sandwiching referee Nick Patrick into the turnbuckle and knocking him out! Taker frowns down at the ref before turning back to catch JBL coming in with a Chokeslam! Taker drops to his knees, expecting for a count, but Nick Patrick is well and truly out. Undertaker looks far from pleased as he gets to his feet, and the crowd begins getting to their feet, booing? Taker turns around and IS DRILLED TO THE MAT BY A THUNDEROUS SPEAR FROM GOLDBERG! GOLDBERG IS BACK! The crowd is booing apeshit as Goldberg evily grins down at the Undertaker, then pulls the Deadman up and drives him to the mat with a JACKHAMMER! Goldberg now revives Nick Patrick who conviniently comes to and then Goldberg hops out into the crowd still grinning at what he's done, while JBL crawls to Taker and drapes an arm over him 1.....2.....3!
Winner @ 12:10 - JBL
Advances to Semi Finals
The crowd explodes into boos as JBL has his hand raised, not knowing what's happened, and we see Goldberg still in the crowd grinning at Taker, who is down in the ring
Cole: JBL is through, thanks to the return of Goldberg! I don't believe it! Goldberg has just returned and screwed Undertaker out of his match with JBL!
Tazz: What a statement to make from Goldberg Cole! I don't think he's finished with Undertaker yet.
Cole: You can be sure that Undertaker will want revenge in the worse possible way on Goldberg! This is just not fair, Undertaker was moments away from securing a victory and advancing!
Back to the ring now and Undertaker SITS UP! Taker is furious, rolling his eyes back into his head and gritting his teeth in seething hatred for what Goldberg has done before we cut backstage
Matt Hardy is walking the halls, getting a good pop from the fans, before he is stopped as he runs into Gregory Helms!
Helms: I just want to tell you Matt Hardy, you've had a nice two months with that US Title, but it's only going to be with you for a little longer, because I, Gregory Helms, will take it from you.
Matt: Is that so?
Helms: Oh yeah.
The two men get in each other's faces, when a cough is heard and Mr. Kennedy steps into the picture
Kennedy: Did I hear you right chump. The Hurricane wants a US Title shot? Well stand back, because that ain't gonna happen. There is only one man that deserves a United States title shot, and that man is MR. KENNEDY!.....KEN-NEH-DAH!
Matt: I'm sorry to ruin this little debate, but I don't think either of you have the right to face me for this Championship, so I'll leave you two to argue amongst yourselves...
Matt Hardy goes to walk off, but runs right into Muhammad Hassan and Daivari! The crowd boos and Hardy rolls his eyes, wondering if anything else could make this moment worse
Hassan: Typical American, too afraid to defend what he can lose.
Heat from the fans
Matt: O boy...
Hassan: You walk these halls with MY United States Championship like your some important person, yet when I had that title around my waist and walked these halls, I was frowned upon by the locker room. I was seen as an unfit US Champion in the eyes of every single prejudice fan in the World for holding a title that didn't reflect my nationality!
Matt: No you were frowned upon when you had this title because you were a cowardly, racist, egotistical whiner.
Crowd pops as Hassan steps in close to Hardy, both men breathing heavily, while Kennedy & Helms also move in close, and the four men share an intense staredown
Hassan: It seems like you're a marked man Hardy. And if I were you, I'd decide to grow some balls and put that title on the line against the man who rightfully deserves his chance at the belt, and that man is M-
Kennedy: MR. KENNEDY!
Hassan turns to Kennedy and Kennedy smirks, while Helms takes the opportunity to tap Hardy on the shoulder
Helms: Watch your back Hardy, because I aim to keep my word.
Helms walks off, and then Kennedy does in the other direction, leaving Hardy and Hassan staring down as we go to a commercial
Cole: Welcome back to SmackDown! folks. We are live from St. Paul and what a night we've seen so far. Goldberg returning to get revenge on Undertaker, Matt Hardy seems to be a marked man backstage, Benoit & JBL have advanced into the Semi Finals of the No Mercy tournament. And also, MNM and the FBI went through a hellacious Ladder match, only for it to end in a very contentious draw!
Tazz: There are some big issues that have to resolved Cole, and I think No Mercy could well be the place for that to take place!
Cole: I couldn't agree more partner.
*Fully Blooded* hits to some fair heel heat as the Cruiserweight Champion Nunzio makes his way out, ready to defend the belt
*Turn It Up!* hits to a good pop as Scotty 2 Hotty dances out on stage and down the ramp, partying with the fans at ringside like only Scotty can do, before getting into the ring
Cruiserweight Championship Match
Scotty 2 Hotty vs Nunzio (c)
Match is kept short due to the show already chocked full of stuff to come, really just a way to book the CW Champ on the show and give him a match. Nunzio continually cheats around to stay in control of Scotty, although S2H is able to make a short comeback, countering a Sicilian Slice attempt and going on the offensive, hitting a Superkick, then a One Handed Bulldog. Scotty feels wormy and bounces around on one foot, connecting with the Worm! Scotty covers 1.....2....NO! Nunzio gets a shoulder up. Scotty looks a little surprised but tries to stay ontop, only for Nunzio to poke Scotty in the eye and connect with the Sicilian Slice! Nunzio covers for the victory.
Winner @ 3:53 - Nunzio
Retains Cruiserweight Championship
Nunzio poses with the CW title, looking smugly happy with his performance before heading backstage
Cole: Nunzio retains, but not in the greatest of fashions...
Tazz: And you expected something else? The FBI don't care how they do it, as long as they get the job done Cole, they're more than happy to go to almost any lengths.
Cole: I can't say that so far in his reign as Cruiserweight Champion, that Nunzio has been an upstanding Champion and role model.
Backstage now and we are in the office of Paul Heyman. The GM is given HUGE heat from the fans and is on the phone, when there is a knock on the door and in comes James Storm & Chris Harris of America's Most Wanted! The Tag Champs get a nice pop from the fans as they enter
Heyman: Ah, the pride and joy of tag team wrestling. What may I do for you two fine gentlemen?
Storm & Harris look at each other, raising their eyebrows, knowing Heyman can't seriously mean what he just said
Storm: Well you could start off by telling us who we are going to face at No Mercy for the tag titles, because from we were sitting tonight watching the Ladder match, neither team won, and that means neither team has the contract to face us for the tag titles.
Harris: We've sat backstage for the past hour and so waiting to be informed on what's happening, but we haven't heard anything apart from the fact all four men are being treated at a local medical facility.
Heyman: Yes, I was wondering how long it would take before this had to be addressed. Well James, Chris, it seems to me that the referee awarded the match a draw, because both Johnny Nitro and Chuck Palumbo were both able to yank the case off it's hook at the same time. So, that means that at No Mercy, it will be America's Most Wanted versus....MNM versus the FBI in a Triangle Tag Match!
Pop from the crowd
Heyman: Now if you two don't mind, I have a show to run, so if you'd please shut the door on your way out, that would be much appreciated...
AMW exit the room not looking miffed by the announcement made by Heyman, despite the fact that they will be facing two top teams for their titles in 3 weeks time
Cole: And our first finalised match has been made for No Mercy! America's Most Wanted defend their WWE Tag Team Championships in a Triangle Tag Match against both MNM and the FBI pairing of Vito & Palumbo!
Tazz: The champs days could well be numbered Cole!
Cole: They could well be leaving No Mercy without the belts they've held since Summerslam, but you can never count them out, not for a second.
Music begins playing
Tazz: Cole, can you hear that?
Cole: Yes I can Tazz.
Tazz: It's "Getting Thru?" by Fuel, which is the official theme song for No Mercy which is only 23 days away! It's the first time a Fuel song has been used in the WWE Cole!
*Medal* hits and the crowd erupts into a big ovation as the World Heavyweight Champion, Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring ahead of his open challenge match. Angle looks extremely intense and ready to go here tonight, after not even being originally booked to wrestle tonight
Angle's music dies down and we wait for the opponent to appear, and after about 10 seconds of waiting *Born Naughty* plays and William Regal heads to the ring to some heat. Angle is shown in the ring getting ready for a potentially tricky contest
Open Challenge Singles Match
Kurt Angle (WHC) vs William Regal
The fans are treated to another top technical wrestling contest tonight, although this one runs a little shorter due to the want to put Angle over as a Wrestling Machine and also the fact that the show is running slightly behind schedule. Angle seems in total control and cannot put a foot wrong, taking it to Regal and wearing him down, but as Angle attempts the German Suplex, Regal counters sharply with a Snapmare takedown and locks in a reverse chin lock on Angle. The Olympian battles back to his feet only to be hit with the Regal Cutter! Regal covers 1.....2....NO! Angle kicks out, looking strong! Regal tries to apply the Regal Stretch, but Angle counters it, slipping behind Regal, and taking him down with a German Suplex! Angle then waits for Regal to get back up and he plants him with an Angle Slam! Angle now slaps the Anklelock on Regal in the middle of the ring and Regal has no where to go and no choice but to tap!
Winner @ 8:04 - Kurt Angle
The crowd applauds the intense performance from their World Champion tonight as Angle holds the belt high before turning to one of the camera's at ringside and mouthing "No one can take this from me" before exiting the ring as we go back to the announcer's booth
Cole: Kurt Angle is looking strong Tazz! A very impressive victory over the difficult William Regal, and our Champion seems focused on No Mercy and keeping the title around his waist!
Tazz: Well Cole I've said it before and I'll say it again, Kurt Angle is a Wrestling Machine! Regal hung in there for as long as he could, but Angle can kick it into a notch that very few can hang in and proved too good in the end.
Cole: I don't think anyone can deny the confidence in this man, but maybe at No Mercy, it could take a beating if the winner of the No Mercy tournament is able to dethrone Kurt Angle from the top of the ladder!
We now go backstage to Steve Romero who is standing by
Romero: Thanks guys, I am standing here with JBL, who earlier tonight due to some unexpected help from the returning Goldberg was able to advance into the Semi Finals of the No Mercy tournament with a huge win over the Undertaker.
JBL is all smiles as the crowd gives heat
Romero: JBL first off, it must be a great feeling to being one step closer to facing Kurt Angle at No Mercy...
JBL: Let me stop you right there Steve. First off, let me correct your sloppy interviewing. What you were meant to say is it must be a great feeling to being one step closer to BEATING Kurt Angle at No Mercy, and once again becoming the World Heavyweight Champion!
Boos from the fans
JBL: I haven't been ontop for so long, it feels strange to see the cornerstone of this show languishing far away from what is rightfully his prize. Everyone says that Kurt Angle is a brilliant Champion, Kurt Angle is a Wrestling Machine, well I got news for Kurt Angle, I am a Wressstling....Godddd!
JBL: And even well oiled machines like Kurt Angle can be overcome, because let's not forget Steve, man made machine, and God made man, so that would make me an obvious choice against Kurt Angle.
The crowd boos in annoyance with the crap JBL is talking
Romero: O...K...And I have to also ask you, we heard from Chris Jericho earlier tonight...
JBL's big grin quickly turns to a frown at the mention of Y2J
Romero: The tension between the two of you seems to be rising by the week, would you care to comment?
JBL swipes the mic from Romero looking unimpressed still
JBL: Chris Jericho is nothing but a punk. Seriously kid, you shouldn't even be trying to compare acheivements with John Bradshaw Layfield! I am a best selling author, a major player on the stock market, and I was the longest reiging Champion in SmackDown! history. No one gives a damn about your awful second rate rock band, the fact you are the "Ayatollah of Rock And Rollah" and that you were the first Undisputed Champion of this company, when you couldn't even beat a guy on virtually one leg at Wrestlemania X8! You're living in the past all the time son, it's time to take a long hard look in the mirror and see that you cannot touch greatness like me! You belong with all the other scum that infest the great city of New York! And if you want to keep talking the kind of rubbish you were talking earlier, then I'll make sure to shut that damn trap of yours for good!
JBL storms off, in a very sour mood as Romero sends it back to ringside
Cole: JBL with some hard words there for Kurt Angle and Chris Jericho Tazz!
Tazz: Well Cole he's got every right to boast and brag, because I believe if he gets there he can beat Kurt Angle. And on the other hand, I know he can beat Chris Jericho.
We now switch backstage to see Batista & Lashley meeting up, shaking hands with each other and getting ready for the main event, and then get a split screen view of the other supposed partners Jericho & Lesnar walking by themselves
Cole: Well when we come back, it's our main event, Batista & Bobby Lashley taking on Chris Jericho & Brock Lesnar!
Tazz: Talk about rocketbuster's!
We return and see Lesnar bobbing up and down in the ring with Jericho posing on the ring apron and his music playing. Jericho then gets into the ring and leans over the ropes looking into the crowd, getting a very pro response as the fans seemed to have warmed to him completely now
*Real Deal* hits and Bobby Lashley makes his way out on stage, setting off his pyro's and slapping a few hands at ringside as he awaits his partner
The crowd erupts with a loud pop as *I Walk Alone* hits and Batista heads out, walking to both ends of the stage before stopping in the middle and letting his pyro's explode behind him. Batista then joins Lashley and the big duo get into the ring
Tag Team Match
Batista & Bobby Lashley vs Chris Jericho & Brock Lesnar
Entertaining main event with the power game of Batista, Lashley & Lesnar coming to the forefront of the match while Jericho sparingly involves himself in the match when Lesnar seems to be in trouble, hacking at the leg of Lashley and the shoulder of Batista, trying to slow the big men down. The crowd is very much on Jericho's side even when he's against Batista and Lashley working his heel tactics. Jericho is able to hit the Flashback on Lashley 1.....2....NO! Lashley just kicks out. Jericho tries to go for the Walls Of Jericho, but Lashley uses his leg power and sends Jericho back into the turnbuckle, and Y2J stumbles out into a Belly to Back Suplex! Both men down. The crowd begin making a noise with a mixed reaction for both men as Jericho tags in Lesnar. Lesnar gets in, but LASHLEY TAGS IN BATISTA! The crowd pops as Big Dave and Brock Lesnar go punch for punch in the middle of the ring with neither man blinking until Lesnar goes the low road and knees Batista in the gut. Lesnar goes for the F5, but Lashley helps Batista out the back and the two hit Lesnar with a Double Clothesline! Jericho comes running in and scores with a Running Enzuiguri to Lashley, taking the "Real Deal" out through the ropes after the impact. Batista fights off Jericho with right hands, then plants him with a Spinebuster! Batista turns his attentions back to Lesnar and is caught with a Belly to Belly Overhead! Lesnar covers 1.....2...Kickout. Lesnar now gets up, wanting to end it and pulls Batista up, only for the Animal to break free and hit a Spear to Lesnar! Batista now tugs at the ropes, getting ready to hit the Batista Bomb, but Jericho springs off the turnbuckle and hits the Springboard Dropkick to Batista, who stumbles backwards into Lesnar who rolls him up 1.....2.....3!
Winners @ 11:32 - Chris Jericho & Brock Lesnar
Lesnar celebrates with his victory and Jericho heads out as Batista seems dissapointed he was pinned, and Lashley comforts him in the ring as the show goes off air
