Nige’s Raw Feedback

I missed this show and Smackdown being posted, where was my PM?! I’ll read Raw and leave the feedback now before reading Smackdown and leaving some feedback for that and editing in

The intro was huge, two huge matches, but that’s nothing compared to the Orton bombshell. I can’t believe you didn’t hype that more with a news like quote because it comes off as an oh by the way sort of thing as it followed up the two match announcements, seeming that we were all aware of it beforehand when you should have done the news article or had a serious introduction about just Orton. I checked back and didn’t see any kind of news report to announce it, that’s a bit of a surprise

An electric start to the show for sure with the huge announcement about Orton. It’s a good thing you addressed that, but it all seems to have been undervalued with no appearance from Orton and the announcement of the tournament straight away like it’s no real big deal that the WWE Champion has had to forfeit the title. The tournament was the best way to go, but I don’t like that Jericho gets to face the winner. It’s a tricky one since he is the number one contender, so I can see why he’s got the bye, but it just seems unfair really when everyone’s got to bust their ass to face someone who won just one match to get in this very privileged position. It was no surprise that we would hear from Jericho, although him going down to the ring was a bit of a shock. After last week, Cena and HHH needed to keep the continuation going by coming to the rescue. I like the chair shot screw up from Cena as it will make things uncomfortable and add some tension to what happens in the tournament. I definitely sense a Cena/Jericho match at Survivor Series. The follow up after the break was very well written to have Shane come across as no nonsense so that we have a sense of normality after the chaos we saw last week and more importantly, keep the two factions focused on each other

What a match to kick start the show. It was one that would undoubtedly get the fans involved for sure and it hypes up the 10 man elimination match at the Survivor Series straight away. Although a lot of it was just a brief description, the ending worked out well with the heel team screwing up to get the crowd on a high early on and set up some kind of retribution for next week

I liked Austin here playing the part to a high entertainment level. His laughing followed up by the deadpan look was great and can be imagined very easily. Cody getting some promo time was vital and it was good that you gave him some kind of personality after Austin played the serious GM too. The tag title situation has been unique and very interesting to say the least, so it’s cool that we’re seeing some kind of resolution towards that, but I don’t have a clue who will win tonight in what should be a great match

Melina back in the arena just after being ringside with Morrison was a little strange. Mickie’s return video last week followed by Beth’s reaction was booked very well, and it was clear that when Beth came down, the result was never in doubt. Mickie had to win to set up the feud, and it was better that you signalled her intent instead of Beth just attacking her like most people would. As solid as ever man

Coach and Vince’s promos are back, sweet! I liked these two together and you played their chemistry well, especially since Coach didn’t just have the victim tag here as he is one of the few people that Vince can trust and show the other side of his character to. It’s also a good idea to have Vince try and work his way out of the Jericho stipulation, but it’s not going to happen

This Orton promo seemed to just come out of nowhere as I didn’t expect we’d hear from him after the opening promo. I think this should have been at the top of the show to make the situation stand out even more, as it just seemed like another promo, not a filler, but just a typical promo when it should have been so much more than that

The No DQ ruling you made gave Cody the chance to make a statement, and he did just that. It was a very sensible booking decision to allow this to make Cody stand out as a heel now and not just the plain old Cody that we were all used to

A nice little filler promo there to hype up the Lumberjack Match. The Kennedy blaming Carlito part was pretty funny to turn it in to an entertaining promo. The face teams was obviously going to be very different, and I thought that you were teasing a Cena turn more by having him show up late, but not the case it seems. Having him and Trips talk to the mid carders like they did was a great idea, as it came off as more like a real learning experience for them, like they are following the top dogs to build themselves up

The tournament grid looks good, clearly sets up Kennedy/Cena and Trips/Umaga for the semi finals. From there it could go any way, but it’s clear that there will be one from each unit going up against each other in the final, with Cena’s tension with Jericho tending to be the only real hint at to have a meaningful match at the Survivor Series, but having Jericho face one of The Corporation for the title makes more sense. The winner of the Cena/Kennedy semi for me will win it and take on Jericho

I just realised by reading the Lumberjack Match that the winner of the number one contender’s tournament will be in double duty at Survivor Series, giving Jericho way too much of an advantage. Anyway, the 10 man brawl was always on the cards and having the heel team start with the break of the count gave it the best way to start, making the most sense for sure. Cena standing tall, giving us a clue there are we?

It was cool that you added a little extra to the Vince/Austin promo than just Vince begging by adding the gun and the security to it. It was a little corny at first, but it all came together to set up the match for later on. I don’t see Jericho getting five minutes alone with Vince at all

I was trying so hard to figure out who would get the shot at the titles, and I had a bit of an inkling that it would be Cryme Time since they’ve given the situation some real entertainment, along with the fact that The Rednecks weren’t going to face another heel team. The ending worked well as we finally saw the WGTT get their gold back and stop them look like a laughing stock, and it obviously led to a well set up distraction for the finish. The promo after from Austin was cool and was a little unexpected, but after he refused to make it a number one contender match, I shouldn’t be surprised

Wow, another promo! That’s 9 if you take out the post match one before. I was planning my shows in the build up to the Rumble and panicked with one show being full of promos, ironic! This show does seem a little long, but not overly I don’t think. The interview from Jericho did a great job of showing both his comedic and intense side to hype himself and the match really well

The main event was real good and you teased the Jericho win very well, but The Coach’s distraction was great, and I sensed that Orton might not be injured with the lack of attention to it beforehand, but I got suckered in I must admit as the show went on. It was a great twist for sure having Orton interfere, and it kind of makes sense with the 10 man match at the Survivor Series. The chaos after keeps the whole intensity of the feud going well in to the Survivor Series


Okay, on to Smackdown

Edge’s frustration from last week was a great place to start and he got his beat back from losing clean to Kane. I think the tea sippers comment wouldn’t bother any of us English, and we all accept that we are America’s bitch as far as the Iraq/Afghanistan situation goes. Regal coming out is a great way to get some real fan interest in to the show. The idea of going for a World Title match too involving one of our own was sheer brilliance and it would have been one hell of a hot crowd throughout. I can see why you wanted Edge to escape narrowly, but having him lose clean last week and tap out here (to Regal), he doesn’t look like the strongest champion right now, something he needs as he heads in to his match with The Undertaker

I don’t like Kane in talking situations and I didn’t really like him to be honest, threatening to kick Flair’s ass as well as Batista’s. It’s again an original storyline that you’re developing and it should draw to an exciting conclusion, probably with Batista returning to save Flair’s ass from a beat down

Noble came across very well early on with his statement about giving Kash the head start, showing some real arrogance. I’m not sure though that you should have had him act all geeky like a kid with the Pamela Anderson stuff since he’s be as serious as hell about getting back in the series

I know you’re pushing Chavo and you’re doing a real great job if it, but I can’t for the life of me understand why you had Kid Kash job clean to him tonight. While he’s involved in the Cruiserweight Championship Series, he shouldn’t be doing jobs to anyone really unless Noble sets him up for a match with Taker or someone like that. The injury angle might have had something to do with it, but you could have had a DQ or even Kash get a roll up win with Chavo then attacking him to hurt him for next week. Strange decision to make Kash job there man in the grand scale of things. The shot to Noble was a good idea though

The VIP Lounge was a good way to follow on from the attack on Matt last week and to unveil the new faction. I’m not too keen on the name to be honest, but I think over time it will grow on me. I maybe would have liked to have heard from the tag champs since they can both work the stick. Teddy coming out and putting them in their place was sweet and it gives them a serious test straight away. They really need to come out on top tonight

The tag match was pretty good, but I was again left a little perplexed as to why Cor Von hit the pounce where he did with no explanation as to what happened immediately after, because that should have been it. MVP’s interference was needed to really give them some credibility as a group, and the chain could become a frequent participant in their matches, which is one great tool to have when they’ll need it. Playing on Batista’s return with the brawl was no surprise, but I still maintain he’ll come to the rescue very soon

Masters beating Dreamer was okay and it seems that you’ll be playing this tag team angle out, and pushing it this high up the card gives it some much needed attention

This is what we need to see baby! The Playa’s Club are looking dangerous now and that’s what they had to come across as tonight, and by attacking two random people so viciously certainly shows them to be ruthless. If MVP really wants to it by himself tonight, I’ll eat my hat. But first, I’ll need to buy one! Either The New Breed will help, or they’ll listen and it will be Edge who saves him

Finlay and Flair played out well, keeping in tone with what went down earlier with the brawl after the tag team match. I wasn’t expecting to see Burke and Cor Von, but at least the face team gets some momentum back going in to the Survivor Series. Flair escaping as the one man on his own works well as it’s Flair and no one wants to see him get beat down

Oh right, this is where you announced Orton’s injury. A bit strange that you placed it here and didn’t follow it up with a news article

Edge was always going to get himself involved here, and he had to in all honesty after the last two weeks. MVP too didn’t look all that weak by getting some offence in before the inevitable happened and Taker took control. Keeping MVP from doing a job was massively important, not as much as Kash though to be honest, but the severity of Edge’s assault really added some serious fire to his feud with Taker

Overall, the main difference from Raw was that there was a lot less promos. I thought that the booking of Kid Kash tonight was very strange to say the least, as well as a few minor problems with a couple of promos. Edge tapping out after losing clean the week back also didn’t help him a great deal, but still a good show as always

WWE Smackdown!
Long Island New York
2nd November 2007


*Opening Video and Pyro*


We then go to ringside where Michael Cole and JBL introduce us to the show. They run down tonight’s card which includes a huge tag team main event as the Brothers of Destruction reform for one night as they take on Edge and MVP. Also Elijah Burke takes on Ric Flair and finally an interview with Batista and Michael Cole from his home in Washington DC will be shown. We can clearly see that Michael Cole has a big bruise on his right eye, to which JBL asks him what happened and Cole says he doesn’t want to talk about it right now.

We then go to the ringside where the V.I.P lounge is set up and “I’m Comin” hits and the Playas Club consisting of US Champion MVP and Tag Team Champions Elijah Burke and Marcus Cor Von make their way down to the ring. On the way down to the ring Cor Von for no reason at all throws a camera man into a steel barricade along the ramp to which the Playas Club laugh about. MVP grabs a mic and introduces us to the V.I.P lounge which he starts off by insulting the Long Island crowd. He then talks about tonight the Playas Club are going to teach of the biggest WWE stars today a lesson when Elijah Burke takes Ric Flair to school, and when MVP takes out Kane and The Undertaker. MVP then introduces us to his partner for that match and his guest the World Heavyweight Champion Edge. Edge comes out and MVP says that he and his crew are going sit down and drink some highly priced Champagne to celebrate their victories in their matches tonight allowing Edge to say whatever he wants. As the Playas Club sit down and take a drink Edge talks about what happened last when he attacked the Undertaker during his match with MVP. He shows the footage before saying that many people thing the Undertaker is the intimidator and that Edge is afraid of The Undertaker, but what happened last week proves that The Undertaker is the one who should be scared of Edge. Edge says that The Undertaker has had a long and successful career in the WWE, but good things are always meant to come to an end and at Survivor Series The Undertaker will come to an end. Edge says if anybody thinks The Undertaker is about to become a 6 time World Champion well they will be badly mistaken, because this is the Rated R Era and nobody will ever take the World Title from him. He finishes off by saying that this match will be Rated R, for retirement when he puts an end to the Undertaker’s career in 16 days time. Edge then leaves the ring, and a few moments later the Playas Club go to leave the ring. But as MVP goes to leave the ring, MVP IS HIT WITH A CHAIR BY MATT HARDY! Hardy hits the Twist of Fate onto MVP before fleeing the ring and exiting through the crowd as Cor Von and Burke go to make the save.


Commercial Break


When we return from commercial we immediately go backstage where Kristal Marshall is running to catch up with Matt Hardy backstage. She goes to ask him a question when Matt Hardy cuts him off telling Kristal that was only the start of what he is going to do to MVP. He says MVP and his cronies tried to end his career, so for that he is going to take MVP out. He says the first thing he is going to do is take what makes MVP tick and that’s the United States Title, and he says according to General Manager Teddy Long that will take place when he returns to the ring at Survivor Series.

Match 1
Tag Team Match
Billy Kidman and Jimmy Wang Yang v UKConnection with William Regal


We kick off the wrestling side of the show with a bang as we get a highflying contest here between four great athletes. Jimmy Wang Yang and Billy Kidman kicked off the match in a very fast pace, and Jimmy Wang Yang hit a top rope moonsault to the outside onto both McIntyre and Burchill. Burchill and McIntyre gained the advantage in the match however when William Regal got himself involved tripping up Kidman which lead to Burchill hitting a Northern Lights suplex. Burchill and McIntyre then wrestled a very effective tag team keeping Kidman in their corner not allowing him to tag in Wang Yang. However Kidman fought back after hitting McIntyre with a Jawbreaker after being locked in the Sleeper Hold. Kidman then tagged in Wang Yang who came in with a bang hitting McIntyre with a Springboard Crossbody. Wang Yang started to clean house and it looked like he would take the victory when he hit McIntyre with an Enzuigiri but Burchill broke the count. Kidman came in and attacked Burchill only to be pushed back to his corner as Wang Yang climbed to the top rope. With the referee still distracted, Burchill leapt up to the top rope with Wang Yang and HIT A TOP ROPE C-4 ONTO WANG YANG! Burchill then knocked Kidman off the apron as McIntyre made the cover and took yet another victory for the UKConnection.

Winners: UKConnection in 7:01


Survivor Series Commercial


When we return from the commercial we go Michael Cole and JBL who talk about Batista and his decision to quit Smackdown and the WWE two weeks ago. Michael Cole says that in the past week he flew over to Washington DC and conducted an interview with Batista in his very home.

We then cut to the Titantron where we see Michael Cole sitting down on a chair opposite Batista in Batista’s home in Washington. Cole thanks Batista for allowing him to conduct this interview and asks him to explain why he quit the WWE. Batista explains his decision by saying that he lives to become the World Heavyweight Champion and be the very best. And at No Mercy he had the opportunity of a lifetime to make the wrongs of the past right and beat The Undertaker so he can gain a title shot and become the champion but he screwed up. He says that if he can’t be the best he can and be the World Heavyweight Champion there is no point, because he doesn’t just want to be another wrestler on the roster who is floating about doing nothing but making the numbers. He wants to be the World Heavyweight Champion, and he is not been given fair shots to do that. Cole asks Batista what about his fans to which Batista says that they turned their backs on him. Batista says that the fans boo somebody who wrestles night in and night out and gives everything for the fans, and they cheer somebody who couldn’t give a damn about them. He says that the Undertaker comes in doesn’t say a word and then walks out with his cheque. Batista says as far he is concerned the fans can go kiss his ass. Cole then finally asks Batista why he has left his mentor Ric Flair out in the cold, saying that Flair made Batista the star he is today and that Batista is supposed to be a part of Ric Flair’s team at Survivor Series. This angers Batista who sighs heavily before asking Cole to leave. Cole stupidly asks Batista if he can have an answer first, to which Batista shouts at Cole to get out. Cole tries to apologise Batista for apologising to him, but does too much talking and Batista thumps Cole in the eye. Batista then lifts a dazed Michael Cole to his feet and tells him to get out of his house before he gets his ass kicked. We see Michael Cole leaving Batista’s house with the camera men, with Cole holding onto his eye as we go to a commercial.


Commercial Break


We return from commercial to see all three of the Playas Club members talking about what happened with Matt Hardy making his return attacking MVP. MVP says what Teddy Long did was wrong, and there is no way that Matt Hardy deserves a title shot at Survivor Series. All three of them realise Shannon Moore and Funaki backstage talking and having a laugh. The Playas Club members then share glances before nodding their heads, before rushing at Moore and Funaki and they start to ambush them. Elijah Burke hits Funaki with the Playas Club’s trademark weapon the Steel Chain, as Marcus Cor Von gets Moore onto his shoulders and throws him like a dart into the wall. The Playas Club’s moan about Matt Hardy then turns into a laugh as Moore and Funaki lye on the floor in pain.

We then cut back to ringside where JBL is laughing at Cole for getting punched in the face by Batista. JBL says that Cole is actually better looking now, because he can’t see his god ugly face because there is just a black hole to which Cole ignores him and we move on with the show.


Match 2
Singles Match
Chavo Guerrero v Chuck Palumbo


After a very quick opener, we get a very slow paced match here with a lot of grounding and pounding. Palumbo used his strength to his advantage in the early going, until Chavo tossed Palumbo shoulder first into the ring post and then dropped him with a DDT. Chavo then started to work over the shoulder of Palumbo trying to keep the big man down, but Palumbo fought back hitting a Samoan Drop onto Chavo nearly taking the victory. Palumbo looked in full control and set up Chavo for the full throttle, but Chavo slid off his shoulders and dropped him with a neckbreaker. Chavo then also went for his finisher but could not lift Palumbo up for the Gory Bomb, and Palumbo countered it into a back body drop and followed that off with a Superkick for a near fall. However Chavo turned the tide of the match when he caught Palumbo with a flapjack onto an exposed turnbuckle, which Chavo took the padding off earlier in the match. This knocked out Palumbo, which allowed Chavo to finish him off with the Frog Splash for an impressive victory.

Winner: Chavo Guerrero in 5:58


Straight after the match we go backstage where we see Steve Romero standing by Ric Flair. Romero asks Flair about his opinions on what Batista had to said during his interview with Michael Cole. Ric Flair says that there is clearly a big problem with Batista, he says that Batista isn’t the kind of man to attack defenceless people like Michael Cole. Flair says that he knows that Batista truly wants to be back in the ring, and says that the only person that can change his mind is him. Ric Flair says that he is going to go to Washington next week and meet up with Batista, and he is going to give Batista one more chance to do the right thing and return to the WWE. Ric Flair then walks off as we go to a commercial break

Commercial Break


When we return from commercial we go backstage to see Edge backstage speaking to somebody on his mobile phone asking them if they saw what Batista did to Michael Cole saying it was hilarious. Suddenly the lights in Edge’s room flicker and Edge says hello a few times before realising that he has lost the person on the other side of the phone. The lights in Edge’s room then completely turn out, but Edge’s attention is quickly turned to the monitor and we can see his jaw open wide. We then focus on the monitor where there is just an image of a mannequin of Edge lying inside a Casket. We then hear someone trying to open the door very aggressively, with someone banging on the door. A look of concern appears on Edge’s face, and he quickly grabs a Steel Chair and stands by the door and shouts “the door’s open!. The door then opens and Edge swings the chair at what he thinks is The Undertaker, only for it to be his partner tonight MVP! Edge shouts damnit and gets onto his knees and looks down at MVP who is knocked out. The lights in the room then turn on and Edge rubs his hand through his hair looking annoyed at what just happened knowing that the Undertaker had gotten into his head.

Match 3
Tag Team Match
Chris Masters and Kenny Dykstra v Sabu and Tommy Dreamer


With both teams exchanging singles and tag team victories over each other, we see another tag team match between the teams to settle their problems. In the early going we saw some back and forth wrestling between the teams with a lot of counters and near pinfalls. We even got to see our weekly Sabu botch as he went for a Springboard Senton on Dropkick on Dykstra only to fumble on the ropes and land on his face. Kenny Dykstra and Chris Masters kept Sabu in their corner for a short period working over his back, but Sabu fought back and tagged in Dreamer. Dreamer came in like a house on fire cleaning house on both men. Dreamer looked to go for the DVD on Dykstra but Masters pulled Dykstra off Dreamer’s shoulders and took Dreamers down with a big clothesline. Masters then held Dreamer back for Dykstra who went for a dropkick, but Dreamers ducked and Dykstra hit Masters with the move. Dreamer then turned Dykstra upside down and dropped him with a Piledriver before tagging in Sabu who connected with a Springboard Legdrop to get the victory.

Winners: Sabu and Tommy Dreamer in 7:23


We then go backstage to see MVP sitting in the Doctor’s office holding an icepack to the back of his head. Edge then walks into the room and MVP immediately gets to his feet and asks Edge what the hell he was thinking. Edge tries to apologise and says that he thought it was someone else which MVP says is a load of crap. Edge tries to move on and say they can ignore what happened and they can take out their anger on Kane and The Undertaker. MVP says that there is no way he is going team up with Edge, which infuriates Edge. MVP tells him to get out, and Edge is about to leave when he stops. Edge says he doesn’t want to say this but there are rumours going about on something Kane and Undertaker said about MVP, Burke and Cor Von. MVP in interest asks what they said and Edge says that they called them a word. MVP asks what that was, and Edge goes up to MVP and whispers something in his ear. MVP’s mouth opens wide and asks Edge if they really said that. Edge says yes, to which MVP shouts “Hell No” and gets out of his chair and says he needs to speak to Elijah and Marcus. MVP walks out as Edge looks on showing a bit of concern knowing that he might have to face both Kane and The Undertaker on his own.

Commercial Break


Match 4
Singles Match
Elijah Burke with Marcus Cor Von v Ric Flair with Rey Mysterio


Ric Flair and Elijah Burke put on a very solid technical match with the majority of the match being wrestled on the mat. In the early going we saw some back and forth technical wrestling, with a lot of counters being exchanged between the two men. Ric Flair went to lock on the figure 4 early on in the match but Burke kicked Flair out of the ring and distracted the ref, allowing Marcus Cor Von to take Flair’s head off with a Clothesline before backing up as Rey Mysterio went to attack him. That interference allowed Burke to grasp complete control of the match. Elijah Burke worked over the knee of Ric Flair very effectively, wanting for the attack on the knee to lead to a submission victory. Elijah Burke looked like he had the victory right in his grasps as he locked on a one legged Boston Crab onto Ric Flair. But Ric Flair deep down and somehow, clawed his way to the ropes. Elijah Burke went to finish the match as he went for the Elijah Express, but Flair moved and Burke’s knees crashed into the turnbuckle. Ric Flair then came from behind with a chop block, and he applied the Figure 4 Leg Lock. Cor Von realised the trouble his partner was in and he went to interfere only for Mysterio to take him to the outside with a Hurricarana. Mysterio catapulted himself to the outside onto Cor Von and the two men went at it distracting the referee. This allowed Finlay to come out of nowhere and hit Flair with the Shillelagh getting revenge for his loss to Flair last week. Finlay then hid down by the ring apron as Burke made the cover to steal the victory.

Winner: Elijah Burke in 7:37


Straight after the match Finlay re enters the ring and starts stomping away at Ric Flair as Cor Von tosses Mysterio into the steel steps before rolling him into the ring. Cor Von whips Mysterio into the corner of the ring and Elijah Burke runs up hitting the Elijah Express, and a staggered Rey Mysterio then walks into the POUNCE by Marcus Cor Von. Cor Von and Burke then join Finlay in beating down Ric Flair, until fire shoots out of the turnbuckles and Kane rushes down to the ring to make the save. Burke, Finlay and Cor Von flee the ring just as Kane enters it and they laugh at the damage they have caused as Kane breaths heavily in the ring, with a psychotic look on his face.

We then go backstage where we see Edge (AGAIN) and he walks into Teddy Long’s office. Edge talks about what happened earlier, with the mistake of MVP being taken out and asks Teddy if he can have a replacement in his match so he doesn’t have to fight Kane and The Undertaker alone. Teddy tells Edge that he got himself into this mess so he can sort the mess out, and that means that he will fight Kane and The Undertaker in a Handicap Match! Edge is furious at Teddy’s decision, and Teddy says if Edge does not show up for this match then he will be stripped off the World Heavyweight Title. Edge storms out of Long’s office as we go to another area backstage.


We go to another area backstage where Kid Kash is walking backstage towards the entrance to the arena, when from Jamie Noble takes him down with a chop block. Jamie Noble takes off the leg brace off Kid Kash, and starts stomping away at his leg which was injured by Chavo Guerrero last week on Smackdown. Jamie Noble drops an elbow across the leg of Kash, before walking off telling Kash he will see him out there.

Commercial Break


Match 5
Match 3 of the best of 7 series
Jamie Noble (0) v Kid Kash (2)[/


With Kid Kash still feeling the effects of his injury by the hands of Chavo Guerrero last week and now the attack backstage, this was a match that was dominated by Jamie Noble and Kid Kash could only get in little offence. Jamie Noble went straight for the injured leg taking him down with a chop block, and then smashing his leg around the Steel Ring Post. Kid Kash was able to get in some offence after hitting Noble with a Spinning Wheel Kick from out of nowhere. Kash started to pick up some momentum-cleaning house on Noble hitting a Brain buster, and then climbed up top but took too long. This allowed Noble to get to his feet and he yanked Kash off the top rope by the leg. Jamie Noble then finished off Kash as Kash had no other choice but to submit to the Boston Crab giving Noble his first win in the series and his first win over Kid Kash in about 7 attempts.

Winner: Jamie Noble in 4:51 (Kash leads Noble by 2 falls to 1 in the best of 7 series)


After the match Jamie Noble celebrates like he won a Gold Medal, as he jumps into the crowd and celebrates with them before going over to the Smackdown Announce Table and shouts “I Beat Him”. Jamie Noble continues to celebrate his victory as see a split screen of Edge on one side, and Kane and The Undertaker on the other making their way down to the arena as the main event is next.

Commercial Break


Match 6
Handicap Match
Edge v Kane and The Undertaker


Edge realised how tough a predicament he was in and he did all he could to survive in this match. Before the bell rung Edge low blowed Kane and then went on the attack as the referee couldn’t do anything. Edge looked for the early Spear but Kane took his head off with a big boot. Kane and Undertaker then started to dominate the match, with both men overpowering Edge quick tagging one another to always keep the freshest man in. As soon as Taker first got into the ring, Taker was all over Edge showing his frustration for being attacked by Edge last week. Edge showed a lot of resiliency to his credit however, as he slid off Taker’s shoulders when he attempted the Last Ride, and he dropped Taker with the Edgecution. Edge then got in some offence getting a couple of near falls on The Undertaker. Edge even hit Taker with the Spear, but he took too long celebrating what he done and taunting the crowd which allowed Taker to sit up. Taker then got to his feet and started pounding away at Edge relentlessly and went through his move set on Edge. The ending of the match saw the now legal man Kane set Edge up for the Chokeslam. But on the outside Marcus Cor Von pulled Undertaker by the legs off the apron and took him out with a big Clothesline. Then the other Playas Club members started distracting Kane, with MVP climbing onto the apron and taunting Kane who went to attack him only for MVP to drop off the apron. This distracted Kane long enough for Edge to come from behind and roll the Monster up for the upset!

Winner: Edge in 10:14


Straight after the match Kane goes for Edge looking to Chokeslam him, when Elijah Burke hits Kane over the back of the head with the Steel Chain. Burke and MVP then team up on Kane inside the ring as Edge rushes to the outside and he and Cor Von team up on Undertaker. Edge shouts orders at Cor Von who goes over to the announce table and empties it, tossing the monitors and headphones off it. Meanwhile back in the ring MVP punches away at Kane with the Steel Chain as Elijah Burke holds him back busting Kane open. On the outside Edge stalks Taker to his feet, before charging up and spearing The Undertaker straight out of his boots! Edge has a manical look on his face, before looking over at Cor Von and telling the powerhouse to put Undertaker through the table. Cor Von pulls over some steel steps, and he steps onto them placing Taker’s head between his legs. Cor Von then lifts Taker to his shoulders and POWERBOMBS TAKER THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE! Cor Von then joins MVP and Burke in the ring and they raise their arms aloft as the crowd boos knowing they have made a big impact. Meanwhile on the outside, Edge mockingly puts one foot over a lifeless Undertaker as he raises his World Title in the air as the show comes to a close.

Nige’s Smackdown Feedback

The VIP Lounge was pretty good, and I like the touch of Cor Von showing the bully side of his character as you get that dangerous feel to him. It’s a nice little simple message that comes over well. You did a good job of hyping them up through MVP’s words, and the message being sent tonight would have been stronger had it been Cor Von to partner MVP, but I totally understand why you’re having Edge be his partner. He also did a good job of bigging himself up and sent a very loud and clear statement to The Undertaker. Matt’s return was a little surprise, it shouldn’t have been but it was. His promo after was good too, reminds of me something that I’ve already put in place for my Raw tonight, but it’s a great idea to have a follow up straight away like that. It’s cool to see Matt when he’s on a mission as it adds a different side to his character. Isn’t he taking on MVP in the elimination match instead of a match for the title?

Yeah, a top rope C4, mark out! I’ve seen Crazy do that, but never Burchill from the top. The UK Connection were never in danger here and you out them up against two guys who would make it an entertaining match, which it was to get the show off to a good start

That was a very good segment with Michael Cole and Batista, although I’m not sure the punch was necessary. That would especially be the case if Batista does return like we expect him to in an attempt to save Flair. You played on that well as you made it look like it hit a nerve with Batista, showing that he does in fact have some regret about leaving Flair in the cold. I guess when he does return to make the save, the fans will love him straight away, which would be a problem as Batista clearly showed he doesn’t care about them now. There are many possibilities here and I liked his comments for sure about not being just another guy on the roster, I’m just curious as to what happens with him in regards to his character when he returns gathering he’s been set up as a heel

The Playa’s Club, can I call them The VIP Club instead because it sounds so much better? Showing them beating people up for the sake of it will get old soon, so leave it from now on. The addition of the trademark chain is another nice little simple idea that could mean a lot

LOL @ JBL mocking Cole for the black eye

Another decent win for Chavo, this time over a bigger opponent which helps his credibility even more. Taking the pads off signalled some kind of dodgy ending that would help Chavo, which obviously is the be all and end all. A cleanish kind of win is great for Chavo, but he still needs that little something extra. He seems a little lost at the minute

Flair going to see Batista next week is the best thing you can do really as that’s the one thing that will draw a response from Batista, although a turn on Flair looks the likeliest outcome here

Wow, after a lack of promos last week, this is the 6th of the night already. It was probably the best too, edging the Batista/Cole segment. Having Taker use his magical powers of sorts and playing mind games has to happen at some point in the feud, and as overdone as the mannequin skit is now, it’s effective. The chair shot to MVP was set up brilliantly mate, can’t give you enough credit for that. What does that mean for the match? And also, very importantly, Edge’s head is going to be all over the place too!

I think this tag team feud you have going on needs some promo time really to get us more in to it as I can’t really remember what has gone down previously with them to be honest. I think you placed them before the main event with Masters picking up the win. If you want this to develop, I would try and give them some time to talk. The ECW guys winning is fine, but I’d like to see a reaction from Masters and Dykstra if you have plans for these guys

I likes this follow up to the chair shot. Having MVP back out of the match is a great idea to really leave question marks in our head about what happens later, and it really does make Edge feel more uneasy. Edge trying to change MVP’s mind was spot on, but I wonder where this will go

I was surprised that you didn’t have a tag team match here to push Burke & Cor Von, but that would have made it four in one night which would be way too many. A win over Flair is huge for Burke, albeit being from Finlay’s interference, which is a good decision with the match in place at the Survivor Series. Having the heels attack was sensible, as was having Kane come out for the save, albeit too late to make it matter

Edge’s unease keeps getting stronger, great! It gets more interesting as it goes, and I loved the realistic approach from Teddy about it being Edge’s own fault and he can find his own way out of it, great call!

Another promo, you go man! After Kash’s injury last week, it was obvious he would lose tonight, but I don’t see why Noble could have just attacked him anyway to injure him this week without Kash having to job last week to Chavo. Okay, the match is up next! The working of the leg was clearly expected and it gave Noble the chance to get back in the hunt, although I was hoping for a roll up for a real shock, but not to be

The main event wasn’t what I was expecting since MVP got nailed by Edge earlier on. With the VIP Club helping Edge to the win, it helps them both without Taker losing any credibility, Kane too. The attack after really does put them all over even more, as does the powerbomb through the table which I’m not too sure about yet since Taker is a big boy and I’ve never really seen Cor Von use that move. I can see past that, I just wonder who will put a stop to Edge & The VIP Club

Good show man as usual, nothing really irks me and there was a lot of real good stuff here for sure. One of the best TV’s you’ve done, and that’s saying something with your strong consistency

Default Re: WWE: Turning The Corner

As promised Kane01 here is your Smackdown review.


Opening Segment: Nothing to moan about here as it was a very solid opening segment to kick of Smackdown. I like to see something like this kick off the show as it gets it out the way also if you know what I mean and let’s us concentrate on the matches. MVP seemed very good, you had him in character throughout. Edge being his character is no surprise to me really and I understand why you chose him. MVP done well getting Edge over TBH saying things like the Undertaker should be the one who is scared of Edge and not the other way about. Matt Hardy coming back was great and would have got the fans hyped big time. Overall good way to kick off the show

Opening Match: The UK connection is a group I like who you have established and one you seem to be giving a good push and they are probably one of the strongest tag teams in your thread today so no surprise that they were able to kick of the show with a win. Not really much to say on the match sadly.

Batista/Cole segment: I really enjoyed this I have TBH. I like these interviews that are taking from the superstars house. You don’t see them a lot and I think that’s what makes it better as it’s more original and you always never know what can happen. I like this heel Batista you have got and him telling the fans to kiss his ass is just bolstering it. The end of the segment was good, like Nige I am not sure if the punch was really necessary and I think maybe Batista just chucking him out would have been better. Anyway, apart from that which wasn’t really a bad thing this was a good segment.

Playas club segment: Didn’t like this really. it’s a shame because it had the makings of a good segment but I didn’t like them going out and beating up two guys just for basically no reason. It’s like they can do anything and I think you are getting them more bad ass than some of the guys that should be. To bad ass for mid-carders.

Chavo Guerrero v Chuck Palumbo: This match was something I wouldn’t be too interested in but you used it to get Chavo over a little more and that’s good. Not really much to say once again.

Ric Flair segment: Interested segment here. I enjoyed the read and I think you had Ric Flair in great character despite it being very short. it’s the sort of thing you see Flair do. Sometimes he’s serious and sometimes not so serious. Him going to see Batista, I dread to think what may happen.

Edge/MVP: This was another great segment. There seems to be a lot tonight Kane01 but it isn’t something I am going to complain about. This was just a great segment altogether. Great Undertaker work making Edge get scared and then him hitting MVP was just priceless. Best segment of the night so far without a doubt IMO. I don’t know why I think this as I liked your other ones especially Batista/Cole. I think its just because I could see it happening as reading.

Tag Team Match: Once again not a stand out match. I am not too sure about the tag team of Dykstra and Masters but hopefully you can work it. You have chosen Sabu and Dreamer to win which I was surprised about. If we had seen a reaction from the losers it may have been better and also like Nige said. Try and add some promos into this.

MVP/Edge: I didn’t really get this If I am honest and wouldn’t say either man was exactly in character. The whole meaning of the segment also I just didn’t really understand. I expected to see Edge have a smile on his face once MVP left after what he whispered into MVP whatever that may be but he was still concerned. I suppose it keeps me interested to see what this is all about.

Elijah Burke v Ric Flair: Match of the night so far but it wasn’t exactly hard with the matches that have so far been showing. Elijah has great talent and has obviously received a bit of a push in this thread which is great too see. The match was a good one throughout and the ending was great. Finlay getting involved. He isn’t joining this group is he? Wouldn’t be the worst addition but just with the name of them I don’t think so . Kane coming out was good and them running also helped. I wonder if this had anything to do with what Edge said.

Teddy/Edge: Teddy Long showing who is the boss there. This segment was also a very good one and I find it funny how you said Edge again . Edge trying to get himself out of like Teddy said the mess he created is very character like and you got Teddy’s character also brilliant. Edge facing both these men in a handicap match would be awesome but I am not sure its going to turn out that way.

Jamie Noble v Kid Kash: All these matches in this series have potential to be great ones but sadly this one wasn’t brilliant due to the obviousness of knowing who was picking up the win. Well it was unless you were wanting to practically kill Jamie Noble off in this thread. I am hoping he can come back from 2-0 down and end up winning it as I prefer him much more to Kid.

The main-event: So Edge is taking the two of them on himself. I thought he would but what I was meaning someone would come down and help. One question, how did Edge win even though men interfered for him? The match itself was a good one and I like the interference you brought to it. Edge not winning clean is good and It helps his heel ways and still keeps Kane looking strong. You really like Cor Von in my opinion because not a lot of people do that too The Undertaker. I like this powerful side of Marcus though and I think he would be capable. You also really like this group as you got them all very much over.

Overall: Kane01 I have read two of your shows now and both have been spot on with just minor things I didn’t like. So overall I would say this is just another solid weekly show heading into Survivor Series . Well done!

Some Feedback For Smackdown!


The opening promo was okay. I like how Marcus Cor Von beat up the cameraman for no reason on the way down to the ring. It shows a different side of him, a meaner, tougher side, and I really like it. You got the characters of MVP and Edge as right as possible considering the way you wrote their speech. They both sent a clear message to The Deadman, and it all hyped the Main Event up nicely. Should be a great one, no doubt in my mind. The return of Matt Hardy was good, but it didn't really seem substantial enough if you know what I mean. Still, you wrote the ending very well, infact you wrote the whole promo well, with nothing for me to really hate on. Good start for sure.


The Matt Hardy Promo backstage following the V.I.P lounge was great. Short but sweet. Everything Hardy said was perfect, and got the point across well. Doesn't sound good for MVP, and the match at Summerslam should be a good one.


The opening tag team encounter was a great way to kick off the show. Fast paced and exciting and all that blah blah you know. Some nice spots, and I always expected the UKonnection to pick up the win, but in the fashion they did so was great. Burchill with the C-4 off the top rope was sweet. Shame that Billy Kidman had to be a part fo the losing team, as i'm a big fan of his, but still just a really good match, well written and everything. Nice one.


In absolutely loved the Interview with Michael Cole and Batista. It all seemed very realistic except for the punch from The Animal at the end, which I found a little too much. The characters of both men were spot on and Cole asked some good questions, good choices from you. I just really like the whole storyline you have going on here, with Batista saying that if he can't be World Heavyweight Champion then there really isn't any point. And Batista claiming that the fans have turned their back on him. I really wonder what will happen at Survicor Series, as positive as I am that Batista will make an appearance, I just can't see how or what Ric Flair can do. Overall a brilliant promo, expertly written. Great work buddy.


The little Playas Club incident backstage was good. I can tell you are serious about this group, as they have seemed to basically hogged up nearly half of the whole of the past two Smackdowns. But I have no problem with it, and I like the attack on Moore and Funaki. Really puts them over nicely indeed. They certainly are a force to be reckoned with, as I remember them doing the same to a worker last week.


Haha, JBL teasing Cole about his black eye.


The Chavo Guerrero versus Chuck Palumbo match was pretty good. I'm a fan of Chavo so i'm glad that he got the win, it was basically clean too. The match itself was very well written and detailed, and all the moves used fitted fine. It was easily to follow and all that stuff. Anyway good second match for what has been a top notch show so far.


Ric Flair promo was good, and again he said the right things. Wonder what will happen when Flair does go to Washington to see Batista next week.


Another great promo here with the Edge one. It was fantastic, and really a good and different way for The Undertaker to get inside his head. I liked how the lights went out and how a manican of Edge in a casket appeared on the monitor. Edge hitting MVP when he walked in was great too, I guess we won't be seeing MVP in the Main Event tonight then. As you can tell as a whole I just loved this segment. Keep it up!


-----------
Here's half of the review mate. I can't finish it all now as I am going out for tea. Sorry, expect the rest tomorow.

Default Re: WWE: Turning The Corner

The Chris Masters and Kenny Dykstra versus Sabu and Tommy Dreamer match sounded pretty good. Your average tag team match I guess, with the isolation before the hot tag. It sounded like a fast paced match that would of been good to watch in real life. ANd the ending was nice, sudden, but good. I'm really just wondering if this is the end of this mini fued, or if it is ultimately going to grow in to something much much bigger. A promo for it wouldn't hurt instead of four matches in a row.


I liked the whole Edge and MVP Promo in the Trainers room. Edge's character was good, and MVP's was perfect. I wonder what Edge told MVP, and I also wonder if MVP will show up in the Main Event. We will see I guess, but I am guessing yes for the later.


The Burke versus Flair match was quality from start to finish. It was detailed, easy to understand and follow, all the moves used were good and it flowed nicely. I am over the moon that Burke won as it really builds him up as a serious competitor, even if it was due to interference by Finlay. The Finlay attack was a good move by the way, really adds another little piece to the Traditional Survivor Series Match. Good job.
Kane making the save for the post match assault was good. And I like the side of him you are currently running with.


I didn't really see the point in the Edge/Teddy Long Promo. But I guess it did let us all know that it would indeed be a handicap match. Atleast both men were in character with there sentence each.


Noble attacking Kash as he makes his way out to the ring is good. Hurts Kash even more while also building up the match to make it even more personal. However imo it would of been better for Noble to just take Kash out to the ring himself. The match itself was short but sweet. Kash never really stood a chance, and you wrote it well with his little spurt of offence before it all came tumbling down. I loved how Noble celebrated like he had won a Gold Medal too. Nice touch mate.


The Main Event was excellent. No one really looked weak considering the Playas Club interfered. It was all written well, with all boxes ticked. The ending was the best bit, as it was all realistic and creative. The post match assault was excellent too. Very well described and I liked the Powerbomb through the table from Cor Von. Really sent a message to The Undertaker. Although it may have been a little too much as it was The Deadman himself and I Cor Von doesn't use the Powerbomb. But it's obvious you are a fan of his so it's all good I guess.


Overall another class show from you kane. Maybe not as good as last weeks Smackdown, but still great. I think we saw a bit too much of Edge and the Playas Club, infact way to much. You did the same thing last week too. I think you could of worded some things a bit better, but nothing really major. Just want to congratulate you on another good job. Keep it up, your rolling in to Survivor Series!

Default Re: WWE: Turning The Corner

Opening Segment: I thought this was a very good way to start of the show and I'm a big fan of Burke, Cor Von and MVP and Cor Von throwing the camera man for no reason just tied in with his character and was a nice touch. I also liked how MVP put over the group saying Burke would beat Flair and take him to school and that he would beat Undertaker and Kane with the World Heavyweight Champion, his guest, Edge. It was all very, very cocky but brilliant the way it was wrote. Edge was being in-character saying that he would beat Undertaker which again is very cocky but ties brilliantly in with his character and I liked the whole "Rated R Era" thing.

Matt Hardy Interview: I was glad you had an interview to follow-up on the whole thing, it just made sense and Matt was very in character and the way you wrote it was very appropriate. I mean who wouldn't be angry if their career was nearly ended and who wouldn't want revenge? And Matt hinting at the match at Survivor Series was a nice little touch. And I like the way you wrote the US Title into play, saying that's what made MVP tick, it was all very good.

Kidman\Yang Vs UKConnection: I am glad you are using Drew McIntyre in your BTB because well, he's Scottish so I fully agree with him being in here lol. I also like that he is paired with Burchill and Regal and Regal is just like their mentor and I'm glad they are getting a push and it was a reasonable win. I expected some sort of squash but Yang/Kidman put up a heck of a fight and the finish to this match was great with the C-4 off of the top rope, it would be spectacular if done in real life.

Batista/Cole segment: As Jamie I believe said earlier it's quite original and isn't seen often, an interview in the superstars home that is. I thought it was very well-conducted and the lead-in to it was great too. It wasn't just thrown onto us you had a lead-in and had everything build up really well to the climax where Batista clocked Cole in the eye and you touched on this segment earlier when Cole didn't want to talk about it which was a brilliant idea. Then Cole back-tracking, I mean I guess Cole could stick his foot in his mouth but asking for an answer first, I don't see it though but it could happen. Great Little Segment.

Playas Club/Funaki/Shannon: I'm mixed on this segment, although it gives the impression that the Playas Club are the rulers as it where on SmackDown! and can do whatever they want, which is good I'm not sure about them just attacking Moore and Funaki for no reason but then again Cor Von did it to the cameraman and I thought it was good. I guess it builds up The Playas Club as real badasses as was said before and I actually quite like that.

Chavo Guerrero/Chuck Palumbo: This match was a good write-up and it really got Chavo over and the cheating was a nice touch again. The turnbuckle being exposed did make it seem like Chavo was going to cheat but the fact you see that he is going to do it first and manages to follow-up with it again just adds to the match as a whole.

Ric Flair Interview: Very good segment here, Flair was in-character and I'm glad you are having him go to Washington next week, good idea there. And I am really intrigued as to what will happen in the nation's capital.

Edge/MVP: I thought this was quite original for Taker's mind-games and then I was surprised that he actually hit MVP, I was expecting him to realise and stop just short but it adds a whole new dimension to the storyline.

Tag Team Match: Dykstra and Masters are a pair I wouldn't put as a team but you seem to be making it work. Sabu and Dreamer would make a great team and it was a decent match, I expected Dykstra and Masters but you surprised me when Dreamer and Sabu won and I'm all for surprises in wrestling matches.

MVP/Edge: I wouldn't expect MVP to just blow off Edge like that but I liked how Edge was cunning and whispered a total lie into MVP's ear which MVP took very seriously. The basis of the segment was very good and well-written.

Elijah Burke v Ric Flair: Great Match, really, simply, great. Burke the up and coming learner against the legendary Ric Flair and getting the win would really help the push you have going with him, I liked how Finlay got involved and it almost turned into absolutely chaos at the end, I liked the craziness that the aftermath of this match provided.

Teddy/Edge: Both were VERY in-character, Edge trying to get out of it is just something he would do and Long shooting it down is very in-character. I liked this and the Main Event is shaping up to be brilliant.

Jamie Noble v Kid Kash: I was surprised with the choices to have in the Best of Series but I'm glad you are putting Noble and Kash in a feud like this and I expected Noble to get the win after going 2-0 down but it was still a very, very good match and the competition gets closer now

Edge/Taker and Kane: I was very surprised by the ending of this match, I expected Kane and The Undertaker to win this match and pretty quickly and I loved how Edge got the roll-up victory and it wasn't just a clean 123 pinfall if that makes sense. The beating of Taker' afterwards was remminicent of when he did it to The Undertaker in WWE in the run-up to Mania' but it was all good.

Other Points: Another great show, the first I've reviewed and I will begin reviewing more consistantly. Well Done

WWE Raw
Staples Centre
Los Angeles California
5th November 2007


*Opening Video and Pyro*


We then go to ringside where JR and King welcome us to the show saying it is just 13 days till Survivor Series. They announce a mega match for tonight where John Cena, Jeff Hardy and Triple H team up to face Carlito, Kevin Thorn and John Morrison in a preview match for the big ten man Survivor Series tag match at Survivor Series.

“Burn Inside My Light” hits and WWE Champ Randy Orton makes his way down to the ring to some huge heat. Orton starts off by saying that ever since last week he has been asked in public and had letters sent to him questioning how he could fake an injury to which Orton states he did it because he can. Orton states that he is the WWE Champion which gives him the rights to do whatever the hell he wants, and he couldn’t give a damn if a bunch of cripples with torn quads in hospitals are offended. Orton says he will do anything it takes to make sure that he keeps the WWE Title, and after RKO’ing Chris Jericho on the announce table last week he can confidently say that there is no chance in hell that Chris Jericho is going to walk out of Survivor Series, with the WWE Title. Orton attempts to speak when he is interrupted by the sound of Chris Jericho’s entrance and he appears on the ramp with a mic. Jericho demands for Orton to shut the hell up. He says he is sick and tired of having to save the people each and every week by having to come out and interrupt Orton’s monotonous rambling about a load of boring crap. Jericho then talks about what happened last week when Orton hit the RKO to him on the announce table, and tells Orton that the only mistake he made was that he didn’t get the job done. Jericho tells Orton that he should of faked his injury for a little while longer, because he now has a second attempt at trying to cripple Randy Orton. Jericho says that at Survivor Series he will give Orton the beating of his life and will walk out after six long years of waiting the WWE Champion. Jericho says for now though he wants a piece of Randy Orton.

Jericho then sprints down to the ring, and he and Orton get into a brawl exchanging hard right hands with Jericho getting the better of Randy Orton. Road Agents and Referee’s come sprinting down to the ring as “Glass Shatters” hits and Austin appears at the top of the ramp with a mic. Austin says that the last week Randy Orton has given him a lot of headaches, because he had to make a number one contender tournament to replace Randy Orton at Survivor Series only to have to cancel it when he finds out Randy Orton isn’t actually injured. Austin says that since Orton screwed with the boss, Austin is going to screw with him. Austin says if any Corporation member gets involved at Survivor Series during his match with Chris Jericho then they will get their asses fired. Austin then says tonight that Chris Jericho can take the night off, but only after he picks Randy Orton’s poison. Austin then finishes with his traditional closing line as we go to a commercial break


Commercial Break


Match 1
Fatal 4 Way
JTG (w/Shad Gaspard) v Lance Cade (w/Trevor Murdoch) v Paul London (w/Brian Kendrick) v Shelton Benjamin (w/Charlie Haas


We kick off the show with a fast and furious fatal four way featuring one half of each of the four teams competing for the Tag Team Titles at Survivor Series. It was a match where all four of the participants came so close to victory after hitting their finishing manoeuvre only for the pin to be broken. Halfway through the match Cade and Benjamin teamed up to take out both London and JTG, but when Lance Cade hit a Sitout Spinebuster on JTG, Shelton Benjamin broke the count. This led to the end of their short term relationship, and after being tripped by Haas on the outside Benjamin hit a Superkick to Lance Cade and came so close to getting the victory only for Trevor Murdoch to place Cade’s foot on the rope. The ending of the match saw Haas made the save for Benjamin in the claws of defeat, which led to Shad, Murdoch and Kendrick getting into the ring and the four people not involved in the match go at it. Shad, Murdoch and Haas fought it out to the outside, before Kendrick hit a Suicide Plancha onto the three of them on the outside. Meanwhile Paul London knocks Cade and JTG out of the ring, before climbing up top and hitting the Shooting Star Press for the victory.

Winner: Paul London in 8:33


We then go backstage to see Todd Grisham standing outside General Manager Stone Cold’s office, and moments later Chris Jericho walks out of the office with a smirk on his face. Todd asks Jericho if he can reveal to who he has picked as Randy Orton’s opponent. Chris Jericho tells Grisham to shut his mouth and says that he is going to have to wait and find out later like everyone else. Jericho says that all he can promise though is that tonight Orton will not be leaving on a stretcher faking an injury, but rather on a stretcher with an injury. Jericho tells Grisham that he is going to go find a good TV get some popcorn, get some soda, and sit down and relax. Because tonight everybody will be able to witness the program called Randy Orton getting his ass kicked all over Los Angeles. Chris Jericho then walks away with a smirk on his face as we go to a commercial break.

Match 2
Tag Team Match
Mickie James and Michelle McCool v Beth Phoenix and Melina


We get a reasonably decent Womens Tag Team Match here with three of the most talented divas involved in it. Mickie and Michelle made a fast paced start to the match with Mickie taking Beth to the outside with a Hurricarana, and Michelle taking down Melina with a Dropkick. But Beth and Melina took advantage of the match after Michelle couldn’t cope with the size and power of the Womens Champion, and she fell victim to a Backbreaker by the Glamazon. Beth and Melina then wrestled some effective Tag Team Wrestling, keeping Michelle away from her corner and working over her back. But Michelle got her team back into the match after showing some athleticism hitting an Enzuigiri to Melina. She then tagged in Mickie who came in like an house on fire, cleaning house on both Beth and Melina. Mickie hit the Mick Kick to Melina and went for the cover, only for Beth to break the count. Beth went for a Powerbomb on Mickie, who countered it into a Hurricarana taking Beth over the top rope to the outside. Mickie then re-entered the ring and hit Melina with the Jumping DDT to take the victory.

Winners: Mickie James and Michelle McCool in 5:48


After the match Mickie and Michelle celebrate their big victory as Beth leaves ringside furiously at her team’s loss. Mickie James signals to Beth that she is coming for the title as we go backstage.

We go backstage to see Steve Austin on his phone with his feet up on the desk. He repeatedly says “What”, before shouting that he wants the beer to be delivered to him tonight or he will go find the person on the other side of the phone and kick his ass. Austin then slams the phone down as Cody Rhodes walks in with a big smug on his face. Cody asks Austin if he saw what he did to Hardcore Holly last week saying he embarrassed Holly and beat him in less than twenty seconds. Austin stays silent to which Cody asks what Austin wanted to see him for. Austin then goes into a tirade insulting Cody with the crowd chanting “What” after each line, and Austin announces that next week on Raw Cody will face Hardcore Holly in a Falls Count Anywhere Match. Austin says that if Cody tries to pull off a stunt like last week, he will get his ass kicked by Stone Cold Steve Austin. Austin then tells Cody to get the hell out of his office, and Cody leaves looking very happy that he has to face Hardcore Holly one more time.


Commercial Break


When we get back from commercial we go to ringside where Santino Marella is in the ring ready for the Santino’s Casa. An angry Santino brings back what happened two weeks ago when he was hit with the Stone Cold Stunner by Stone Cold, and declares that he is never going to be embarrassed like that ever again. Santino says that from tonight during his match with Val the Penis they will see a tougher, stronger, faster, better Santino than ever before. Santino says that people will be remembering him for being the best there is, the best there is, and the best there ever is. Santino then introduces his guest Ken Kennedy the Kennedy. Kennedy comes down to the ring to some big heat and takes a mic. Kennedy does his traditional introduction before Santino welcomes Kennedy to the show and tells him to feel free and say his name as many times as he can before the entire crowd fall to sleep. Ken Kennedy looks at Santino with anger on his face, to which Santino raises his hand and quickly sits down. Ken Kennedy then cuts a promo basically hyping him self up and running down people like Jericho, Cena, Triple H and RVD and the Los Angeles crowd which looked like a pretty pointless promo. But moments later “One of a Kind” hits and RVD comes down to the ring. Santino Marella shouts at RVD saying he has no right to be on the show, when RVD grabs Santino and tosses him out of the ring before getting in Ken Kennedy’s face. RVD says he is sick and tired of hearing Ken Kennedy run his mouth every week. RVD says that Ken Kennedy things he is a big name in this business because he runs alongside the likes of Vince McMahon and the WWE Champion Randy Orton. But all Ken Kennedy is, is the bitch of the Corporation. This angers Ken Kennedy who shoves RVD in the chest and the two men go at it. RVD knocks down Ken Kennedy with a Spinning Wheel Kick after being whipped off the ropes and Kennedy rolls to the outside. Then GM Stone Cold comes out with a mic and says that if they want each other so bad, then they can have a match which will be right here right now. Production staff then come down and clear the ring of the Santino’s Casa as we go to a quick commercial.

Commercial Break


Match 3
Singles Match
Ken Kennedy v Rob Van Dam


Ken Kennedy and RVD are given enough time to produce a good match in what is the first ever singles match between the two men. Not much happened in the early going with a lot of going until RVD gained the momentum after hitting a diving Thrust Kick to Kennedy off the middle rope. Kennedy came back into the match when he lifted his knees when RVD attempted a Split Legged Moonsault. Kennedy then started to work over the chest of RVD, leading up him locking on a Bearhug onto RVD. It looked as though RVD would submit but he escaped with some knees to the gut followed by a high kick to the back of Kennedy’s head. After RVD had fought back we got three minutes of back and wrestling with both men hitting their signature moves and coming close to victory. RVD looked to go for the Frog Splash only for Kennedy to pull RVD off the top rope, and to moments later hit the Mic Check only for RVD to just about kick out. RVD looked to have the victory when he knocked Kennedy off the top rope when he went for the Green Bay Plunge and on second attempt hit the Five Star Frog Splash. RVD went for the cover when Kennedy’s fellow Corporation member Armando Estrada comes down and distracts the referee just as he was about to count three. As the referee is distracted Estrada’s client and also Corporation member Umaga gets into the ring and hits RVD with a Samoan Spike. Umaga pulls Kennedy ontop and leaves the ring. Estrada lets go of the referee who then makes the count allowing Kennedy to steal the victory.

Winner: Ken Kennedy in 10:20


After the match Umaga pulls a dazed Ken Kennedy out of the ring as the crowd give big heat for the way the match ended. Ken Kennedy in celebration goes over to Umaga and hugs him, only to quickly let go when Umaga shouts in Samoan obviously wanting Kennedy to let go. Rob Van Dam slowly gets to his feet holding to his throat looking very pissed off, as Ken Kennedy points and laughs at RVD as we go to a commercial break.

After the match we go backstage to see John Cena standing by Todd Grisham who conducts an interview with Cena over the upcoming 6 man tag. John Cena speaks very candidly in this interview saying that he knows that he is better than this, and says that he watches on seeing Chris Jericho and Randy Orton being the two main men currently on this show knowing that he should be that man. Cena tells Todd that this is just another match to climb his way back to the top of the WWE mountain, and says that he couldn’t care less who gets in his way even it is that Chia Pet Putz Carlito, a Rick Rude rip off John Morrison, or Kevin Thorn who he was sure he saw in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Cena says that he doesn’t get who gets in his way, because he is on his way back to becoming WWE Champion. We then hear somebody say “What about if I’m in your way” and we see Triple H walk into the scene. Triple H says that Cena needs to stop being crazy and thinking about the WWE Championship; because they have a 6 man tag match tonight and they need to focus on the Survivor Series Match at Survivor Series. Triple H then says that Cena had his chance at Survivor Series and he blew it so if anybody deserves a title shot it is Triple H. The two men then lock eyes for a few moments, before Jeff Hardy walks into the scene and asks the two of them if they are ready for the match. Cena says damn right I am before walking off the scene with Jeff Hardy, as Triple H smirks before follows the two away.


Commercial Break


Match 4
6 Man Tag Team Match
Carlito, John Morrison and Kevin Thorne v Jeff Hardy, John Cena and Triple H


We get a fun 6 man tag team match with all 6 man having some good time in the ring. In the early going the faces started off in dominating fashion with the heels not coping with the high flying Jeff Hardy and the two of the toughest wrestlers on the roster in John Cena and Triple H. However, step in the power of Kevin Thorne who turned the momentum of the match after hitting Jeff Hardy with a Sitout Spinebuster. Thorne, Carlito and Morrison then took control of the match keeping Jeff Hardy in the corner doing the smart thing to keep the quick man down on the mat. It even looked as though they would take the win when Carlito hit Hardy with the BackCracker on Jeff Hardy, only for John Cena to desperately come in and make the save. However it was one attempted finishing move too many as Hardy blocked a Moonlight Drive, and followed that off with a Twist of Fate. Hardy then tagged in Triple H who exploded into the ring and hit everything that got into his path. Triple H hit a Double A Spinebuster and went for the cover only for Carlito and Thorn to get involved. John Cena sorted that mess out before Triple H hit the Pedigree onto John Morrison. Triple H then tagged in Jeff Hardy who hit the Swanton Bomb, who then tagged in John Cena who made Morrison tap out to the STF-U.

Winners: Jeff Hardy, John Cena and Triple H in 12:49


After the match we go backstage where we see the, with Vince watching the monitor furious at what he saw. Vince says that he hates John Cena and Triple H, and he can’t wait to see what is coming to them at Survivor Series. Vince then looks at Randy Orton who appears to be very pissed off and Vince asks what’s wrong to which Orton pushes some paperwork off the table and says that he is sick and tired of Steve Austin abusing his authority. Orton says that Austin is doing everything he can to make sure Chris Jericho takes the WWE Title by allowing Jericho to pick an opponent for him, and Orton is not allowed to pick an opponent for Chris Jericho who has the night off. Vince tries to calm Orton down saying it doesn’t matter, because there is no one that can beat Randy Orton. Vince tells Orton that Jericho is in the arena, and he says that just because he doesn’t have match means that he won’t get what is coming to him. Orton then smiles before looking at Ken Kennedy and then Umaga as we go to a commercial.

Commercial Break


Match 5
Singles Match
Santino Marella v Val Venis


We saw a much better in ring performance from Santino than we have so far in his short career, with a more determined and physical Santino being shown. Santino came close to taking the victory just a minute into the match with a Belly to Belly Suplex only for Venis to just kick out. Val got very little offence in, but enough to come so close to victory. After hitting a Fishermans Suplex he climbed up top and went for the Money Shot, only for Santino to roll out the way. From there it was all Santino, hitting Venis with a Full Nelson Facebuster followed by a Diving Headbutt off the top rope. Santino then finished the match by going back to his OVW days as Boris Alexiev and making Venis submit to a Triangle Choke.

Winner: Santino Marella in 5:21


Commercial Break


When we return from commercial we see WWE Champion Randy Orton making his way down to ringside for this pick your poison match. Orton waits for his opponent to come out when “Glass Shatters” hits and Stone Cold comes out with a mic to the crowd’s disappointment as they briefly thought Austin would be Orton’s opponent. Austin tells Orton to not worry as he his not Orton’s opponent, but Jericho has indeed picked a tough son of a bitch to face Randy Orton. Austin then warns Orton that if he tries to get out of this match in any way or form, then he will have no choice but to strip Orton off the WWE Title. Austin then walks to the back as “Samoan Bulldozer” hits and Randy Orton looks on in shock, as Chris Jericho has chosen Orton’s fellow Corporation member Umaga as his opponent.

Match 6
Singles Match
Randy Orton v Umaga with Armando Estrada


To the frustration of the Corporation Umaga took this match very seriously as straight from the get go he started pummelling away at Orton possibly remembering that Orton walked out on him last week which allowed Triple H to attack him with a Sledgehammer. Just a minute into the match Chris Jericho made his way down to ringside to commentate on the match. Jericho was followed a minute later by Corporation members Vince McMahon and Jonathon Coachman who tried to persuade Umaga to stop the match only for Umaga to ignore him. Orton finally got some offence into the match after moving out of the way when Umaga attempted a Samoan Wrecking Ball. Orton hit an Inverted Headlock Backbreaker and then went for the RKO, only for Umaga to toss him out to the outside. Umaga continued to attack Orton on the outside until Orton countered a whip sending Umaga into the Steel Steps. Orton then proceeded to work over the shoulder of Umaga in the ring, locking on an Abdominal Stretch. But the power of Umaga allowed him to fight out of the hold, and hit Orton with a Scoop Lift Samoan Drop. It looked as though Umaga had the match won when he set Orton up for the Samoan Spike, only for Orton to duck and low blow Umaga after pushing him into the referee. Orton then scrambled to the outside and picked up a Steel Chair. It looked as though he was going to bring it into the ring, only for him to swing it at the skull of Chris Jericho. As Orton continued to attack Umaga in the ring, a minute after the Chairshot Chris Jericho came in the ring and attacked Orton in the ring and started pounding away at him in the corner. However Umaga despite the beatdown he has put on Orton, made the save after grabbing Jericho and hitting him with a Samoan Spike. Ken Kennedy then sprinted to the ring and joined Umaga and Orton lay in a beatdown on Jericho, which forced the referee to call the bell.

Randy Orton v Umaga goes to a no contest in 8:56


After the match Orton and Umaga continue the beatdown, with Orton going to the outside and grabbing the Steel Chair. Umaga pummels Jericho into the corner, and Randy Orton holds a chair in front of his head. Umaga then charges up hitting a Samoan Wrecking Ball to Jericho in the corner with the Steel Chair smashing off his skull. Randy Orton then tells Estrada to tell Umaga something, which he does. Umaga pulls Jericho to the centre of the ring and holds onto his head. Orton sizes up Jericho and it looks like he is going to try and end Chris Jericho’s career just like Shawn Michaels with the punt to the head, when Triple H runs down to the ring with a Sledgehammer! Triple H enters the ring just as Umaga and Orton flee out of it. Triple H then tosses the Sledgehammer from the ring down the ramp, which just missed Armando Estrada. Raw then comes to a close with HHH helping Jericho to his feet , and the two of them stare down the ramp at the Corporation members.
