Re: WWE 2006 by Renegade™
No opening video or pyro tonight, we open with a graphic that reads *Chris Benoit 1967-2007* before we open up live with the ENTIRE WWE locker room, all superstars from both RAW & SD!, officials, divas and staff all stood on the stage. In the center of the ring, Vince McMahon is standing with a microphone
Vince: Tonight, we open up Monday Night RAW, with a tribute to one of the greats. Chris Benoit passed away on Saturday morning, much to the shock and sadness of the entire world.
Vince pauses as the camera pans around the fans in attendance, some are clearly upset, others look like they're fighting to hold the tears back, and some stand there in complete sorrow and silence as Vince continues
Vince: Chris Benoit was a man who's passion for the business was matched by only a few. He was always one of the first one's on the scene, and one of the last to leave. Chris with the apitomy of a true wrestling legend.
A quick pan to some of the wrestler's in attendance, amongst those lined up at the front are Benoit's closest friends in Kurt Angle, Rey Mysterio, Rhyno, Perry Saturn, Dean Malenko, Chris Jericho, Finlay and Chavo Guerrero all with tears in their eyes
Vince: Chris was a beloved man by his fans. He loved his family, he loved the fact that every day he had the chance to entertain all you fans with his amazing array of wrestling manouvers and techniques. From his days in ECW, to WCW and then onto the WWE, Chris Benoit will forever be remembered and never forgotten!
Another pause by Vince, who seems to be holding back a tear or two himself
Vince: I would now ask for total silence as we salute the "Rabid Wolverine", the "Canadian Crippler", Chris Benoit with a ten bell salute!
The bell rings out around the arena as we see the majority of fans now starting to let their emotions out, people embracing each other, some people don't even know who they're crying with, as the emotion of the night takes over
We see shots of more wrestler's now, Stone Cold fighting back the tears, Mr. Kennedy squinting away his, The Rock standing in total silence with a tear trickling down his cheek. Benoit's closest friends at the front of the pack are all visibly upset, this includes Vickie Guerrero who is standing next to Chavo, crying onto his shoulder
The camera continues to show others as the Dudleyz, Maven, Kane, William Regal, Booker T, John Cena, Rob Van Dam, MNM, Trish Stratus, Gail Kim, New Age Outlaws, Brock Lesnar, AJ Styles, Scotty 2 Hotty, Christian, Edge, Sting, Batista, Carlito, The FBI, Goldberg, Lita, Mickie James, Victoria, Monty Brown, Val Venis, Cryme Tyme, Paul London, Gregory Helms and Triple H among others go by the camera's view, all deeply saddened
The camera then stops on Kane, who even with his mask on, still looks upset by the way he stands, his head hung low, hands on the back of his head
The ten bell salute ends as Vince, Shane, Stephanie & Linda all stand in the ring, taking a moment to take it all in before Vince continues
Vince: I would now like you all to direct your attention to the titantron for a special tribute to Chris Benoit...
Everyone's eyes are fixated on the giant screen
The video begins with a toothy grinned Benoit picture before *WHATEVER* by Our Lady Peace hits, and we are taken through a journey of Benoit's career
It begins showing Benoit as a younger man, training in small gyms and wrestling rings, and also in the Hart Dungeon. It then goes on to his career in Japan, where he wrestled as The Pegasus Kid in NJPW. It show Benoit winning the IWGP Junior Heavyweight title in 1990. It shows his tremendous match with Jushin Liger, his change to Wild Pegasus and some other big highlights of his career, facing the likes of Black Tiger and the Great Sasuke to win the Super J Cup in 1994
In then goes into his ECW career, making a statement by Powerbombing Rocco Rock through a table, and then his match with Sabu where Sabu almost broke his neck. Then shows his Tag Title reign with Dean Malenko, and some more of his match highlights while in ECW
Then the video goes into his WCW career. His tenure in the Four Horsemen, his long running feud with Kevin Sullivan and then his big title feud with Booker T. His formation with Saturn & Malenko in the "Revolution" and then his big Owen Hart tribute match with Bret Hart. Finally, it shows the exodus of Benoit, Saturn, Malenko & Eddie Guerrero from WCW
The four would later arrive in the WWE as the Radicalz. Highlights of Benoit's feuds with Jericho & Angle, his title feud with The Rock, the 2001 feud with him and Jericho beating Austin & Triple H for the WWE Tag Team Titles. It show Benoit's fight against injury and his return in 2002, feuding with RVD, and then more feud with Kurt Angle over the years. It shows his tremendous win in the 2004 Royal Rumble, and then the pinnacle of his career, winning the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania 20 in front of a sold out crowd in Madison Square Garden, as he and an emotional WWE Champion, Eddie Guerrero embrace amongst a loud ovation and falling confetti. It then shows Benoit's final WWE match last Friday, as he made JBL submit. The video ends with Benoit in tears, holding the WWE title up high before the graphic from the start of the show closes out the video "RIP Chris Benoit 1967-2007"
As the video ends, the crowd gives a resounding standing ovation, applauding the man and his career and a huge *Thank You Benoit* chant starts up, which rings out for what seems an age. The terrific ovation for Benoit continues for about 10 minutes before the crowd finally quietens down
Vince: Thank you Chris Benoit for all the memories!
We fade to a commercial break with the entire arena still showing their appreciation for Chris Benoit
JR: Welcome back to Monday Night RAW folks. Before the break, we had a moving tribute to the recently deceased Chris Benoit, but now as Benoit would want us to do, we must carry on with the show.
King: That he would King, it was a truly moving tribute, the fans were terrific in their appreciation of him before we went to a break, a rousing 10 minute standing ovation that was at times defeaning!
JR: And tonight's main event will finalise the tribute to Chris Benoit as a special 8 Man Tag Tribute Match will take place when Kurt Angle, Rhyno, Rey Mysterio & Chavo Guerrero take on Chris Jericho, Finlay, Dean Malenko & Perry Saturn! Eight of Chris Benoit's closest friends in the wrestling business uniting to pay tribute in the ring tonight. This will mark the first match for Rey Mysterio since the Great American Bash, as his torn quadricept has healed. This will also be Dean Malenko's first WWE appearance since May 2001, and also Perry Saturn's first appearance since November 2002! Of course Saturn is brave enough to wrestle through his neck problems for Chris Benoit, that is special King!
King: It is JR, it should be a powerful match!
*Metalingus* hits to huge heat as the show is officially underway and Edge makes his way out to the ring, looking unhappy as always. Edge takes a mic and slides into the ring
Edge: Ya know, it happened again. Last Monday in the main event I had Triple H ready to be finished when low and behold, I GOT SCREWED!
Crowd boos Edge
Edge: It's true dammit! I was cost the match and attacked by someone who wasn't even supposed to be in the damn arena anymore! He was "barred from ringside". Well I guess the security last week was about as useful as a slap from a wet fish.
Edge: And I can tell you now I did not feel a slap from a wet fish, I felt the impact of having a steel chair slammed into my face by Rob Van Dam!
Crowd erupts at the mention of RVD, and they follow that up with an *R-V-D* chant, which gets Edge pissed off
Edge: Sure, go ahead and chant his name. That's not gonna affect me anymore. What did affect me however is that my name was all over the WWE Title come Survivor Series until RVD showed up and placed himself in a position he should NOT have put himself in. The whole world knows that I am the one who proved they should face Triple H for the WWE Championship!
Edge: Each and everyone of you know that I would take Triple H's title, his pride and his dignity if I was given the chance to face him and that's why you don't want me to be the one who get's to face him.
Edge: But now I'm back to square one. Now I have to do something else to grab Triple H's attention. And I'm gonna do it, no matter what it takes, I AM GOING TO SURVIVOR SERIES AND WALKING OUT WITH THAT DAMN WWE CHAMPIONSHIP AROUND MY WAIST!
*IF YA SMELL* hits and the crowd explodes into a huge ovation as The Rock steps out on stage with a mic in hand. Edge glares at Rock from the ring and runs his hands through his hair, obviously not happy he's been interrupted during his talk
Rock: FINALLY, THE ROCK HAS COME BACK TO NASHVILLLLLLLE!
Rock: Edge, you stand out here in the middle of the People's ring, and you go on about the same thing you've gone on about for the past two years. (In a high pitched voice) "I got screwed, screw this, screw that" well The Rock says NO ONE GIVES A MONKEY'S NUTSACK!
Crowd erupts again, breaking out into a *Rocky* chant
Rock: Last week, it was The Rock teaming with the WWE Champion Triple H, taking on the Rated R Superstar Edge and John Cena. A match that would sell out arena's worldwide, a match viewed by the millions (crowd joins in) AND MILLIONS of The Rock's fans, went down to the wire and after the smack had been layed down, the dust had settled and the smoke was clear, Edge, you got pinned in the center of the ring by Triple H, which leaves The Rock standing here tonight in front of all his people, that you are not going near the WWE Title!
Crowd pops as Edge shakes his head
Edge: I deserve that title more than you Rock! While you were off making your piddly B-movies, I was out here in this ring pushing the limits to get the ackownledgement I deserved! And just when I was getting noticed on a higher level I got a frickin' neck injury. But instead of giving up I worked my ass off to get better and a year later I come back and continue to bust my balls to get to the top where I should've been, only for more shit to come my way as I was repeatedly screwed out of the chance to be Champion at every turn!
Rock: The Rock didn't ask for a This Is Your Life special, The Rock doesn't give two bags of monkey excretion what you went through, and The Rock damn sure doesn't give a damn what you think of his decision to make a few movies. Sure The Rock went away and made alot of money in the movie business, but The Rock's heart has always been and always will be with the WWE and The Rock will whip your candy ass if you think you've got a chance of getting that WWE title before he does! I-
Edge: This is going no where Rock.
Rock: Did you just interrupt The Rock?
Edge stands there, tapping his head with his index finger and mouthing "I ain't falling for that again"
Rock: So you're just gonna stand there instead?
Edge: I thi-
Rock: IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK!
Crowd erupts as Rock catches Edge out second time around. Edge is irate with Rock and SLAPS HIM ACROSS THE CHEEK! The arena "Ooo's" as Rock holds his cheek and looks down to the ground at his side, before quickly lashing back with a slap if his own! The crowd erupts as Edge staggers back but then CRACKS HIS MICROPHONE ON THE ROCK'S SKULL!
Rock hits the mat and Edge mounts him pummeling away with right hands to The People's Champ. Edge now rolls out of the ring and takes two chairs, before sliding them back into the ring. Edge awaits for The Rock to get to his feet and BLASTS HIM OVER THE HEAD WITH THE STEEL CHAIR! The crowd is booing like crazy as Edge now places Rock's head over a chair and readies himself to deliver the CONCHAIRTO
*THE GAME* hits and the crowd goes wild as Triple H darts to the ring to a resounding ovation, getting into the ring and tackling Edge down! Triple H goes wild on Edge with right hands to a huge pop as he just saved The Rock from being taken out. Triple H gives Edge a Crotch Chop as he gets up getting a big pop from the crowd. However the cheers change to jeers as John Cena runs to the ring and attacks Triple H from behind! FU TO TRIPLE H!
Cena stands over Trips giving him the "You Can't See Me" when RVD jumps through the crowd and hops into the ring, grabbing Edge's chair from earlier. Cena turns around INTO A VAN DAMINATOR! The crowd erupts as RVD lays out Cena with the Van Daminator. RVD goes upstairs now and comes off with a FIVE STAR FROG SPLASH, TO TRIPLE H! The crowd isn't sure what to think of RVD's actions there as he lands on The Game. RVD rolls around holding his stomach
*SLOW CHEMICAL* hits and the pyro shoots up and Kane makes his way out with the crowd on their feet, knowing what he's capable of and eager to see what he'll do after last week's destruction of these five men in the ring
Kane steps over the top rope and RVD comes at him with a dropkick to the knee, trying to take the big man off his feet. RVD fires a few kicks to the legs of Kane, but Kane swats him away like he's a fly with a right hand. RVD gets back up and Kane grabs him by the throat, looking for the CHOKESLAM! Kane drills RVD to the mat but doesn't stand tall from long as The Rock KIPS UP! The crowd goes crazy as Rock unloads on Kane, layin' the smack down and finshing it off with a right hand that takes Kane over the top rope and out to the floor
The Rock stands in the ring telling Kane to bring it, who goes nuts on the outside, ripping the padding off the barricades, and inside the ring the others begin to move around and they look to go at it again but
*ERK-CRASH* and the General Manager of RAW Mick Foley comes out with a mic in hand, flanked by dozens of security guards
Foley: Cut it out now! All of you, stop right now!
The six men take notice of Foley up on the stage
Foley: I am not going to have you six running amuck every week trying to prove to Triple H over there (points to Triple H) who deserves a title shot more than the others. I will not have some of my biggest stars hospitalized because of that!
Foley takes a moment and ushers the security down to the ringside area, and they spilt up to contain the volatile group
Foley: So with that being said, at Survivor Series, Triple H will defend his WWE Championship... against Edge!
Crowd boos loudly, the others look furious
Foley: And The Rock! (Huge pop) And John Cena! (Loud boos) And Rob Van Dam (Big Pop) and Kane (Another pop) in a Six Pack Challenge Match!
Huge pop from the crowd, all five challengers have mixed looks on their faces, happy they have their shot but not happy they're sharing it with four others while Triple H stands outside the ring looking at his opponents in two weeks time, and gives them all a Crotch Chop to another pop
Foley: As for later tonight, in a No Disqualification; Falls Count Anywhere match, Rob Van Dam will take on Kane!
Foley: And Rock, Hunter, Edge, John. If either of you four should find yourselves involved in that match in any way, you will be immediately suspended until AFTER Survivor Series without pay, meaning you WON'T be involved in the Championship match!
*Erk-Crash* hits again and Foley exits to the back and we go to a break with shots of the six men eyeing each other up and talking trash, making notions that they're gonna win the title
We return from the break and finally we are underway with wrestling action as *Class Time* fills the arena to some heat as Matt Striker heads to the ring, ready to do battle in a "Captain vs Captain" match
*I Am* hits to a huge pop and the Intercontinental Champion AJ Styles flips his hood up and extends his arms out, as the pyro falls behind him. AJ mounts the turnbuckle and plays to the crowd, lifting the IC title up in the air
"Captain vs Captain"
AJ Styles vs Matt Striker
Solid contest to kickstart tonight's wrestling action. Striker tries to work on AJ's back and keep his high flying offense limited, which works for a few minutes and Striker almost has the match won after a Reverse DDT, but AJ manages to kick out.
Striker attempts the GOLDEN RULE (Overdrive) but AJ slips out of it and scores with the Pele Kick to put Striker down, and buy some recovery time.
AJ fights back at Striker and gets into the match, coming close with a Hurricanrana and then a Small Package, however both times Striker just kicks out.
The ending comes along with Striker readying to Superplex AJ off the top rope, but AJ holds onto the ropes, and Striker crashes face first into the mat! AJ readies himself for the SPIRAL TAP and leaps off, but STRIKER GETS HIS KNEES UP! AJ lands on Striker's knees, and then Striker capitalizes with a roll up and places his feet all over the ropes 1.....2.....3!
Winner @ 7:45 - Matt Striker
The crowd gives heat as Striker rolls out of the ring raising his arms in the air, while AJ can only stand in the ring and tell the ref he was pinned unfairly, but that doesn't stop Matt Striker celebrating on his way to the back, getting one over his nemesis
JR: Matt Striker gets a very dubious win over AJ Styles here tonight, but I can't help but think come Survivor Series he won't have that luxury.
King: Striker is smart JR, too smart for both AJ and the referee tonight and has given his team a momentum boost over AJ's team!
JR: Regardless of how it was won folks a win is a win and that's what Matt Striker has picked up tonight...
We return and see Cade & Jindrak backstage, talking with The Johnnies and La Resistance. Todd Grisham walks up to them and quickly The Johnnies and La Resistance scamper off, leaving Cade & Jindrak there with Grisham
Grisham: Guys, just wondering if I could get an interview before your big title defense.
Cade: I guess.
Grisham: What was going on there?
Jindrak: Nothing. Why?
Grisham: Well it looks conspicuous with you guys talking to other tag teams who are going to be at ringside for your upcoming match...
Cade: Listen Todd, either get on to the interview or get lost!
Grisham clears his throat
Grisham: Guys, in a few moments you will be once again defending your Tag Titles against Cryme Tyme, but this week the remaining teams on the RAW roster will act as enforcer's to make sure that you, well, do the right thing.
Cade: Do the right thing? If winning isn't the right thing, then what is?
Grisham: It's just thay many people, including myself believe your tactics and strategy when it comes to winning matches is... questionable...
Jindrak: Is that so? Let me tell you something Todd. If you had a Championship, a WORLD Championship at that, would you do anything to keep it?
Grisham: I guess bu-
Cade: Exactly. The criticism we cop for doing what needs to be done is getting out of hand. We have proven we are the greatest tag team to ever grace professional wrestling. We have it all. The looks, the ability, and most importantly we have the World Tag Team Titles. Last week was a minor hiccup in our plans, we didn't expect to be on the wrong end of a mix up and so we had to re-adjust our strategy. So to all you haters, and all the doubters, watch us go out there and show everyone why we are God's gift to Tag Team Wrestling when we show these good for nothing street punks how to really "bang"
Cade & Jindrak glare at Grisham before walking off to heat from the fans
We switch now and we see Christian & Tomko backstage, talking to a few good looking ladies
Christian: So hows about you beautiful girls go get us some expensive champagne, and get all ready for a night you'll never forget.
Christian leans in, whispering to the girls
Christian: And can you find a girl for my buddy Tomko, he's a little shy and he's been lonely for far too long.
Tomko frowns at Christian as the crowd laughs in the background
Christian: Don't worry ladies, the next time we meet, you'll be partying with the Captain of Team RAW!
The girls walk off as Christian turns to Tomko with a cheesy grin on his face
Christian: There ya go man, Captain Charisma's still got his way with the ladies.
Tomko smirks and nods
Christian: Now all we gotta do is wait until Mick Foley heads to that ring to announce his team, and swoop in to save the day. And that's how I roll!
Christian walks off with Tomko following him, shaking his head and chuckling to himself
JR: Christian seemingly planning a big night, but I think he's getting too far ahead of himself King.
King: The only man Christian can't get ahead of is himself JR, he's not called Captain Charisma for nothing. He's a genious and if Mick Foley was a smart man, Christian would be a shoe in for the team and for the captaincy role!
JR: If is the word King, if.
We see a shot of the ring surrounded by The New Age Outlaws, Eugene/Goldust, The Johnnies, La Resistance
*Brooklyn, Brooklyn* hits to a good reaction as Cryme Tyme make their way out, with JTG dancing down the ramp and into the ring whle Big Shad just grins and looks ready to right the wrong's of last week's match
*Reflection Of Perfection* plays to heat as the current World Tag Team Champions make their way down. Cade & Jindrak don't seem as brash and arrogant as they have recently tonight, with the fact that they are being watched by six other tag teams here
World Tag Team Championships
Tag Team Match
Cryme Tyme vs Lance Cade & Mark Jindrak
The match is evenly contested and almost plays out like the beginning of last weeks match as Shad watches JTG get isolated again by Cade & Jindrak after Cryme Tyme made a bright start, taking it to the Tag Champs.
Jindrak has a headlock on JTG when Shad gets the crowd going and they clap and cheer, trying to help JTG fight back to his feet. JTG fires some elbows into the midsection of MJ and then rebounds off the ropes, but is met with a Tilt-A-Whirl Slam! Cover 1.....2...kickout!
Jindrak tags in Cade and the duo double whip JTG into the ropes, but both lower their heads early and JTG scouts it, grabs both men and drives them into the ground with a DOUBLE DDT! The crowd pops as JTG crawls across and makes he hot tag to Shad!
Shad comes in and runs through both men with clotheslines, before sending Cade into the corner and squashing him with a Body Splash. Shad turns around and Jindrak hits him with some left hands then goes for a Suplex, but Shad counters and loads Jindrak up, holding him in the air and finally dropping him with a Stalling Suplex! Cover 1......2..kickout.
Shad sends Jindrak to the ropes and swings a shot at him, but Jindrak evades it and hits a Neckbreaker to Shad! Cover 1.....2..JTG breaks it up. JTG pulls Jindrak up and unloads with a series of rights to MJ before doing a little hip hop dance which gets a pop from the crowd, and nailing a final right hand. Cade however attacks JTG from behind, and Cade & Jindrak go for the PERFECT SLICE but Shad saves it, taking Cade's head off with a Big Boot to a huge pop! Jindrak attempts to whip JTG to the ropes, but JTG reverses it and Jindrak comes back into the G9! However, The Johnnies try to get into the ring to save Cade & Jindrak, but The New Age Outlaws stop them and all of a sudden, the four teams at ringside are brawling! Shad meanwhile has made the cover on Jindrak in the ring 1.....2.....3!
Winners @ 11:37 - Cryme Tyme
NEW World Tag Team Champions
The crowd erupts as finally, Cryme Tyme have ended Cade & Jindrak's 7 month reign as Tag Champs. Cryme Tyme are handed the belts and celebrate to a huge reaction, joined by The New Age Outlaws and Goldust/Eugene who saved them at the end, and the faces stand tall in the ring while Cade & Jindrak are in a state of shock and dejection on the outside, head in hands not believeing they've lost, while The Johnnies & La Resistance side with them, glaring at the new champions in the ring
JR: Cryme Tyme have done it! Finally, Cade & Jindrak have been beaten for their titles! Cryme Tyme!
King: I can't believe it JR, Cade & Jindrak had the backing of both The Johnnies and La Resistance and still they couldn't win!
JR: What a way to win the belts, Cryme Tyme get their much deserved reign as Tag Champions!
We are now in the presence of Team Striker's locker room
Striker: Did you see that earlier chaps? That was a sneak preview of what we're gonna do at Survivor Series! Team Styles has no chance against our mix of intellect, wrestling skill and raw power!
The team nods in agreement and let's out a "YEAH!" in unison
Striker: The fact is, after the past few months of disrespect I've been on the wrong end of, I will soon be named the winning captain of a Survivor Series match!
Masters: I can't wait to put Carlito down and out for good. I'm sick of that smart mouthed punk always insulting me!
Test: I'm gonna break Rhyno in half!
Striker: That's what I like to hear guys. Everyone in.
Striker puts his hand forth and Masters places his above, followed by Test's and then Haas and Shelton add their's before Striker yells out
Striker: On 3, Team Striker! 1...2...3 STRIKER!
None of the other guys join Striker in his personal chant, while Striker looks disappointed
Striker: We'll work on that later.
Striker forces a smile and exits, followed by Test & Masters, leaving the WGTT in the room. They both turn to each other and roll their eyes at the same time as the crowd laughs in the background
Shelton: Man of all the teams, why his?
Haas just shrugs his shoulders as the WGTT walk out too and we go to a commercial
As we come back *One Of A Kind* hits and the crowd erupts with a big pop as Rob Van Dam makes his way out, ready for a big match with Kane, under the No DQ stipulation
*Slow Chemical* hits after the pyro shoots up and Kane makes his way to the ring with a purpose, but he is met by RVD, who leaps over the ropes with a Plancha onto Kane to kickstart this wild match!
No DQ; Falls Count Anywhere
Rob Van Dam vs Kane
Extremely competitive match sees both men take full advantage of the No DQ stipulation almost immediately, looking to punish the other after the recent scuffles between the two in their chase for the WWE Championship.
RVD had the match under control early on as he took it to Kane after his Plancha onto him to start the match, but Kane kept coming back for more, and eventually over powered RVD and took over, planting RVD with a Side Slam for a two count.
Kane sends RVD to the outside and follows Mr. Monday Night out, only to get a kendo stick into the midsection! RVD then cracks the stick in half over the head of Kane! Cover 1.....2...kickout!
RVD gets onto the apron and does his signature "R-V-D" thumb pose as the crowd chants along, then RVD leaps off with a Moonsault onto Kane! Another cover 1.....2...kickout again!
RVD brings out the artillery now, with a trash can coming into play. RVD clocks Kane over the head with the trash can, sending the big man down, against the steel steps. RVD now places the trash can on Kane's lap, so it's right in The Big Red Machine's face, and gets back onto the apron. RVD THEN RUNS ACROSS THE APRON AND JUMPS OFF WITH A DROPKICK DRIVING THE TRASH CAN INTO KANE'S FACE, SANDWICHING HIS HEAD BETWEEN THE STEEL STEPS AND THE TRASH CAN! The crowd goes nuts and a loud *Holy Shit* chant rings out as Kane slumps down, not moving, while RVD rolls around on the floor holding his lower back unable to capitalize. After a while RVD finally gets a cover on Kane 1.....2.....NO! Somehow Kane kicks out, to the shock of the crowd and Van Dam.
As the match goes on, Kane comes back and Powerslams RVD onto the trash can! Cover 1.....2.....NO! RVD escsapes the count, just, getting his shoulder up.
Kane now runs his thumb across his throat, signalling for the end of RVD. Kane loads up RVD, going for the CHOKESLAM, RVD kicks Kane in the gut then scores with a Stepover Windmill Kick! Van Dam now rebounds off the ropes and connects with the Rolling Thunder! Cover 1.....2...kickout!
Van Dam struggles back to his feet, wondering what he's gonna have to do to put Kane down. RVD then slides out of the ring and grabs a steel chair to a big pop before getting back into the ring. RVD waits for Kane to get back to his feet and KANE SITS UP! This stuns RVD for a moment, but he snaps out of it quickly and THROWS THE CHAIR AT KANE, ATTEMPTING THE VAN DAMINATOR, BUT KANE CATCHES IT AND SENDS IT BACK INTO RVD'S FACE! The crowd pops for Kane's quick counter and the big man stands over a crumbled RVD.
Kane looks like he's going for the cover, but then steps out of the ring and looks under the ring, pulling out a table! Kane slides the table into the ring and follows in, setting the table up. Kane now pulls RVD up and goozles him, going to CHOKESLAM him through the table! NO! RVD slips out the side and grabs the steel chair, blasting Kane over the head with it! The crowd cheers as Kane staggers back and falls onto the set up table! Van Dam now makes his way onto the apron and then climbs up to the top rope, balancing himself but KANE SITS UP AGAIN! The crowd can't believe it as The Big Red Machine comes to RVD and grabs him by the throat, but Van Dam kicks Kane in the face, getting rid of him. Kane comes back for RVD, but VAN DAM LEAPS OFF AND TAKES KANE DOWN THROUGH THE TABLE WITH A TORNADO DDT! The crowd goes nuts again for the spot and another *Holy Shit* chant begins as RVD's body is draped across Kane's 1.....2.....3!
Winner @ 16:34 - Rob Van Dam
JR: Van Dam wins it! What a match!
King: That was a wild match JR, those two put each other through hell literally, the punishment they took was amazing!
JR: And RVD takes a measure of revenge on Kane after Kane has been attacking RVD for the past two weeks, along with the other men involved in our now official Survivor Series Six Pack Challenge match for the WWE title!
RVD gets to his feet gingerly and celebrates with the fans at ringside, holding his lower back as he heads backstage, while Kane SITS UP AGAIN inside the ring and breathes heavily, grunting in frustration that he lost tonight
King: JR, can you hear that?
JR: I can King.
King: It's the official theme song for Survivor Series, called "Riot" by Three Days Grace.
JR: How appropriately selected, because the way this Survivor Series is building up it could well be a riot before the PPV is over!
As we come back we see Todd Grisham standing by
Grisham: Ladies and gentlemen, my guest at this time, John Cena!
Crowd gives big heat as Cena steps into view
Grisham: John, earlier tonight it was made official that you would be one of the five men taking on WWE Champion Triple H at Survivor Series in a Six Pack Challenge match. What are your thoughts?
Cena: Well Todd, it's about damn time I was back were I belong, and were I deserve to be. I've been in the backseat for months now, watching Shawn Michaels & Vince McMahon play musical chairs with each other to see who would fight Triple H and it was getting so damn stale! But now I've got Triple H in my crosshairs and you better believe I'm homing in on his ass and come Survivor Series, I'll be taking that WWE Title off him just like that
Cena clicks his fingers together
Cena: I haven't done one of these in a while, so it may not be grammy winning material, and get out of my sight Grisham, that five dollar suit and that two dollar haircut need some serious maintanence...
So it's on, 6 men, one title at the big Pay Per View
John Cena and the WWE Title been seperated
So I'ma take the title back, old news made new
Taking on The King of Kings, am I ready to play The Game?
Homie this is wrestling, playing games is lame!
So you can have your Scrabble, Pictionary and your Monopoly
Coz when I'm done your gonna need them taken out of yo ass, that's right, not brain surgery but a real labottomy
The Rock, he made movies and quit the business
Now he's back and he wants the strap?
Man that box office flop should stayed here in the first place
All his movies are useless crap!
Whether he's a warrior, a counsellor, renegade sheriff or a bounty hunter it don't matter at all
The fact is I remember 2003 bitch, The Hurricane said you small!
Rob Van Dam, light's up more bongs than an addict
When he's finished with his stash
He's always got Sabu's attic!
I was I could use my feet to kick people when I'm in trouble
Matter fact no I don't coz I fight like a man
And not a ninja in a bubble!
And learn to talk properly, no more using "Dude" on the stick
Matter fact homie give it up all together and shut yo mouth with a D*ck!
Edge he's never on his game
Too busy scouting wives to sleep with
Man if I got "screwed" as much as he did
I'd leave his wife under the rest of the locker room
And let go coz you made for life!
Man you only got three things from Lita and none of them you need
I really pity whoever else you've been with coz all she gave you were S-T-D's!
And Kane, don't think I forgot about you big man
I just had to leave you out much like I do with my trash can!
You's a big, freaky and not all to bright Red Machine
But recently the machine been getting faulty, pussy and lean
I proved at Unforgiven you ain't got it what it takes in this company
Amazingly you still got put in the title match, but you'll be the guy who never makes a statement
Coz once again I'll embarass you and FU into the pavement!
Cena poses to the camera before walking off, leaving an emphatic statement to the others involved in the match at Survivor Series and the crowd can be heard buzzing about his rap
JR: Well King, John Cena certaintely had some words to say there.
King: That was one personal attack JR, I haven't seen Cena so pumped up, it's scary. But this, right now, is just the opposite! PUPPY TIME!
JR: O dear lord...
*Lovefurypassionenergy* hits and Lita & Victoria make their way out, both looking in a mood not to be messed with tonight
*Time To Rock & Roll* hits to a nice reaction as Women's Champion Trish Stratus and the returning Mickie James head to the ring. Mickie is as vibrant as ever, while Trish doesn't take her eyes off Lita, the two staring a hole of hatred right through each other
Divas Tag Team Match
Trish Stratus & Mickie James vs Lita & Victoria
Decent Women's match, doesn't last too long as it's just a cheap way to give the main stars of the Women's division some time tonight. Mickie gets isolated and it looks like Lita has it won with a Reverse Twist Of Fate, but Trish saves the day. Trish is eventually tagged in and she takes both Lita & Victoria on until the numbers game becomes too much for her. As chaos ensues between the four divas, Lita looks ready to steal it with a belt shot to Trish when the ref is busy trying to seperate Mickie & Victoria on the outside, but GAIL KIM sprints down to the ring and takes the belt out of Lita's hands just in the nick of time, and this breaks Lita's focus, and she glares at Kim, yelling at her "I'll get you bitch!" before turning around into the CHICK KICK! Trish covers and Mickie holds Victoria back for the win
Winners @ 3:56 - Trish Stratus & Mickie James
Trish & Mickie are joined by Gail Kim and the faces look pleased while Lita glares at them, and Victoria attends to her friend
JR: Gail Kim gets a measure of revenge on Lita for all the crap her and Edge put her through! And Trish once again has beaten Lita, that must surely be enough to deny Lita any further title chances without earning them!
King: Lita & Victoria don't look happy JR, they look like they could snap and go wild at any moment.
JR: I bet you'd just love that wouldn't you King?
King: You have NO idea JR, no idea...
Back from the break, we are shown an outside shot of the Sommet Centre, before we switch back to inside and see General Manager Mick Foley inside the ring, mic in hand with certain stars from the RAW locker room present, minus a few of the bigger names
Foley: I am out here to do what my announcement on the WWE's website said I would do. And that is, announce my selections for Team RAW ahead of Survivor Series.
Foley: I asked the entire roster out here to be ready for call up, and it's good to see MOST of them got the message and did the right thing...
Foley pauses for a moment
Foley: When I made my selections I thought carefully about each one and what that person could bring to the team. So without further ado, my first addition to Team RAW is none other than the "Alhpa Male" MONTY BROWN!
Crowd boos as Monty Brown & The Coach go up the stairs and get into the ring. Coach shakes hands with Foley and takes the mic, while Brown mounts the turnbuckle and poses to more jeers, then hops off and begins pacing himself back and forth in the ring
Coach: Mick, let me just say that you have made the smartest investment of your life! This man here, The Alpha Male, is gonna single handedly power through the entire SmackDown! team and bring RAW victory this year. I guarantee it. It doesn't matter who the other four men you pick are. Hell it could be a few divas and referee's thrown together, because Monty is that dominant, he'd carry that team to the win.
Foley: OK Coach, settle down and keep your "client" under control, he's looking a little wild...
Coach calms Brown down who hasn'r stopped pacing back and forth yet
Foley: Alright. My next pick was made on the count of he is one of the most decorated superstars in the company, yet he has never held the ANY WWE titles. He is one of the more experienced members of the RAW roster, he is STING!
Crowd erupts as Sting rolls into the ring and raises his black baseball bat up into the air with both arms to a huge pop as the crowd starts a *Sting* chant which rings around the arena for a good half minute. Sting shakes hands with Foley and then backs off and sits on the top turnbuckle, looking over at Monty Brown who's eyes widen at Sting until Coach has to calm Brown down a bit again. Sting cups his hands over his mouth and let's out a loud "Woo" which the fans reply to in kind
Foley: And next, I w-
*Just Close Your Eyes* fills the arena to a LOUD mixed reaction as Christian makes his way down to the ring with Tomko by his side, looking typically over confident and grinning cheesily as only Christian can. Christian takes a mic and gets into the ring with Tomko following him in
Christian: Thank you! Thank you! Thank you all very much!
Crowd boos Christian as he bows to the crowd
Christian: I tell you what, it sure does feel great to be apart of Team RAW!
Foley: Uh Christian, wh-
Christian: Don't worry Mick, it was nothing at all. Of course I was going to be on the team. You don't even have to explain why you picked me, hell it was obvious right from the start that I'd be selected.
Christian: Mick, maybe all those bumps and bruises you've copped over the years aren't helping your hearing but it's alright, I'll spell it out for you slowly, now pay attention closely. T-H-A-N-K Y-O-U F-O-
Foley: Christian, shutup.
Foley: Yes, you were on my list. Congratulations on being part of Team RAW. But-
Christian: But that's not all is it Foley?
Foley: No it's not. I h-
Christian: Have to announce that Team RAW's Captain is gonan be none other than ME!
Crowd gives heat but some cheers are heard as Christian pounds on his chest
Christian: I tell you what Mick it's a great honour to be captaining this uhh...
Christian takes a look at Sting, sitting on the turnbuckle staring right at him, and then at Brown who is still looking like a ravaged animal on the other side of the ring by Coachman's side
Christian: This uh, "Team"! I promise you I will not let you or the RAW fans for that matter, down at all. I already planned ahead and organised some celebratory entertainment for later tonight. So it's all good now Tomko, I mean we can get a fat chick for Mick, a goth girl for Sting over there and well, someone or something for the roid rager in the corner!
Crowd laughs as Brown snarls at Christian, causing CC to back away from him, and we see Tomko chuckling aswell
Christian: Captain Charisma is gonna bring home the victory for RAW coz that's how I roll!
Christian agrees with his own little speech while Foley just shakes his head, rubbing his cheek in almost disbelief that Christian is going on and on
Foley: Christian, if you would please let me finish. What I was trying to say was that I haven't finished announcing my selections yet. I still have one definate one left to announce, and I would love to get that out before Christmas...
Christian nods and holds his hands up
Foley: This man I belive is definately the right man I want CAPTAINING Team RAW at Survivor Series.
Christian: Whoa! Let me stop ya there Mick. Who could you possibly want to captain Team RAW over Christian? Huh? Who?
Foley takes a deep breath then walks up to Christian and whispers something into Christian's ear, and immediately Christian's eye's pop wide open and his jaw drops to the floor before he expresses his protest with a loud "No" just before
The crowd goes APESHIT as Stone Cold Steve Austin heads to the ring to a thunderous ovation from the fans in the building while Christian is clearly upset. Austin gets into the ring and smiles at Christian evily before mounting the turnbuckles and saluting the crowd off with the double bird on each to a raucous ovation. Austin comes to the final corner and Monty Brown stands in his way. Austn tries to go around him but Brown doesn't move. Austin FLIPS BROWN OFF! Coach has to restrain Brown somewhat as Austin brushes past The Alpha Male and climbs the final buckle. Austin hops off and nods at Sting who nods back, before he is thrown a mic and he stands there, looking and Christian & Tomko and grinning from ear to ear while Christian still looks dumbfounded
Foley: Christian, Sting, Monty Brown, fans I give you RAW's Team Captain for Survivor Series...
Crowd erupts into a defeaning *Austin* chant
Austin: Er-hem. Son, look at me when I'm addressing ya.
Christian looks up, still dumbfounded
Austin: Christ son are ya stupid? Wipe that silly look off ya face ya Creepy Little Bastard! (WHAT)
Crowd laughs as Austin claps in front of Christian causing him to snap out of his state of shock
Austin: Now that good ol' Stone Cold's the team leader, he's got a few rules he's gonna put in place (WHAT) Rule number one, you ain't bigger than the team (WHAT) Rule number two, there will be no half assed attempts at humour whether it is deemed funny or not (WHAT) Three, what I say goes and that's the bottom line coz Stone Cold said so! (WHAT)
Crowd cheers as Austin brushes his beard
Austin: Now, if Nashville wants to see Stone Cold Steve Austin share a beer with Team RAW gimme a HELL YEAH!
With that being said, the rest of the locker room that wasn't picked heads to the back and Austin calls for the beer. He hands one to Sting, Foley, Coach, Brown, Tomko and then Christian. All of them down their beer's except Christian, who tosses his away, which Austin sees. Austin chucks Christian another, but he gives it to Tomko. Austin walks up to Christian and this time personally hands him one. Christian sighs and then opens the beer, SPRAYING IT INTO AUSTIN'S FACE! The crowd boos Christian as he and Tomko stand there laughing at Austin, who looks at the mat, wiping his face dry. Austin looks back up at Christian & Tomko and he is laughing maniacally too, which scares Christian & Tomko and Christian senses what's coming as he quickly leaps out of the ring but Tomko isn't quick enough and gets a STUNNER! The crowd comes alive as Austin calls for some more beers and celebrates with the rest of the team and the GM, standing over Tomko and pouring beer all over him while grinning at Christian who is retreating up the ramp as we go to a commercial, Austin moun the turnbuckle and downs and a few more cold ones, still grinning evily at Christian who stands on stage looking back at Austin in anger
We are back live and all eight men in the Chris Benoit tribute match are in the ring, ready to go
"Chris Benoit Testamonial"
Eight Man Tag Match
Kurt Angle, Rey Mysterio, Rhyno & Chavo Guerrero
Chris Jericho, Dean Malenko, Perry Saturn & Finlay
Wonderful tribute match to Chris Benoit as all eight men put in a tremendous performance which neither team plays faces or heels. All eight men have their time to shine, even Saturn who is working through his spine problems for one special occassion and he comes close to beating Kurt Angle after a Death Valley Driver, but Angle got out at 2.
The ref just let's them all go for it towards the end as they pair off, the legal men being Angle & Finlay. Finlay takes Angle down with a CELTIC CROSS, but is then wiped out by a GORE from Rhyno! Rhyno then takes it to Malenko who trips Rhyno down and slaps on the TEXAS CLOVERLEAF! Rhyno begins to tap in pain but he isn't the legal man and Rey comes from no where, scoring with a 619 to Malenko! This free's Rhyno from the dreaded submission. Chavo arrives, flying off the top with a FROG SPLASH onto Finlay! Chavo gets to his feet and Perry Saturn takes him down with a 3 HANDLED CREDENZA! Saturn then gets up and Rey trips him down into the middle rope before connecting with the 619! Saturn stumbles over and Rey DROPS THE DIME before Rey is wiped out by Jericho with a RUNNING ENZUIGURI! Jericho goes to apply the WALLS OF JERICHO to Rey and gets it on. Jericho arches back, increasing the torque of the move when Rhyno rebounds off the ropes gingerly and runs through Jericho with a devastating GORE! Rhyno pounds on his chest in celebration but Finlay dumps the Man Beast to the outside. Finlay now stalks Kurt Angle, setting him up for another CELTIC CROSS, but Angle blocks it and delivers the ANGLE SLAM! Angle quickly locks on the ANKLE LOCK! Finlay has no where to go and no one to save him and thus TAPS OUT!
Winners @ 15:56 - Kurt Angle, Rey Mysterio, Rhyno & Chavo Guerrero
The crowd pops loudly as the riveting match comes to an end. All eight me recover in the ring and embrace with each other to a wonderful ovation from the fans before all eight men line up and raise each other's hands in the air, before taking their "CB" armbands off and laying them in the ring, and Kurt Angle does an amazing gesture of respect by laying HIS World Heavyweight Title alongside the bands as the show fades out with a shot of the bands in front of the World Title which Benoit won at WM20
"RIP Chris Benoit 1967-2007"
