Nige’s Raw Feedback

Orton’s explanation was the only way to get the show rolling after the huge swerve last week. I can only imagine how much heat he would have got here, may be even getting “Vickie Heat”. I like the approach of he can do what the hell he wants because he’s the champ as it just shows how arrogant he is. I wasn’t sure whether Jericho would come out, but if he did I thought he would just run down and attack Orton as it would seem more appropriate with Jericho surely being absolutely furious. We got a feeling that he was angry, but I think he should have just charged down and started the brawl straight away, leading in to Austin’s announcement. They both make sense, but we know for sure that there is no way in hell Jericho is leaving, and Orton’s opponent to me could well be one of the Corporation members since the “Mega” six man tag match has the three minor “Mega” heels and not Kennedy & Umaga. There was tension between Orton and Umaga a few weeks back, so I have a feeling it will be Umaga

That’s an eventful match to kick off Raw, fast and furious to get it going is the best way, and this match certainly did that. Having all the guys on the outside get involved was cool and led to the chaos and added to the overall value of the feud. London taking Cade & JTG out (how?) before getting the win sure gives Londrick some momentum. Nicely done!

Jericho’s promo was very good. It kind of makes me upset since I miss this side of him IRL now that he’s going serious as you wrote it so well with his laid back state mixed in with the humour. Very nice

Mickie & McCool, this would be cool to see IRL just so McCool realises that she isn’t as talented as she likes to think. Mickie sure showed her how to work the WWE style (you probably get the hint I don’t like McCool). Mickie J sure as hell put on one hell of a show after the hot tag and she looked at her best, something she’ll need to be if she wants her title back. This win will go a long way to opening the door to that possibility

It’s good to see some real strong authority on Raw, I still love that method as it’s more entertaining for the most part. Cody getting a little cocky is good as he really needs to work for it like it seems Austin is going to make him. I’m sure Cody will have a trick up his sleeve for next week though, if not an attack this week

Santino’s Casa was pretty solid, although I would have liked to have heard Kennedy’s comments instead of just saying he ran them down, it’s just too vague. Santino was quite funny, but I think that most people who write him try to hard, trying to make everything he says funny. In some situations it’s fine, like here as it’s a comedy segment. RVD coming down was unexpected, but it worked well to set up what I thought would be a PPV match, but clearly not. I wasn’t sure about both men pulling each other down before they went for the finishers from the top as they only go for those moves when their opponent is motionless on the mat. RVD no selling The Mic Check was a bad decision too as it completely takes away the credibility of the move unless there is some time delay, but there wasn’t a mention of it here. A distraction from The Corporation was no surprise whatsoever, and I like that Kennedy picked up the win as he always seems on the border line of the upper mid card and the mediocrity IRL. At least he here’s establishing himself well

Cena turning heel it appears. I like how you seem to have set it up as it is kind of a gradual thing that could develop, but we have never seen this sort of frustration or arrogance about not being in the WWE title picture. There was another grammar error, some haven’t mattered, but here “Cena says that he doesn’t get who gets in his way” , there’s a word missing. There have been a few like that in the show so far and I don’t usually see that happen in your thread

The six man tag match went the way I think everyone expected. The face team were just too strong to make this anywhere near a competitive match, which doesn’t help sell it as one to watch at the Survivor Series. The likes of Cena & Triple H mixing it up with Kevin Thorn, Carlito & John Morrison at one of the big four doesn’t work for them or for the show. Anyway, the faces all tagging each other in was a little too markish for the kids, and it’s not the same for Cena to lock in the STFU when his opponent is already out of it as he’s not making them struggle

The promo with The McMahon’s was a good little filler for Orton to let his feelings out about Jericho getting the night out and further push The Corporation. Orton with Vince at his side is a good combination and can only work wonders for him. Please don’t give Jericho the title at Survivor Series!

It seems weird seeing Santino & Val this high up on the card, especially after Santino was already out earlier on and got made to look like a fool. A loser and a jobber supporting the main event is a strange one for sure. It looks as though you’re trying to make Santino look a little more dangerous and serious after what happened earlier on. It can work, but no more geeky promos or that will just undo the work you’ve started and look to be continuing

I KNEW IT! I wondered why you were setting up some tension between Orton & Umaga a couple of weeks ago and then last week. When it was announced that Kennedy had a match and Umaga didn’t, it was clear as day what was coming. I just wondered how the hell this was going to go, as I expected some kind of promo from Vince to tell Umaga to back away. Umaga being Umaga meant he was going to go at it, but I would have liked Vince try to reason with him as this is going to lead to a lot of trouble within The Corporation. The match was pretty good and I like how you saw to finish it off with Orton taking Jericho by surprise with the chair shot, resulting in the brawl and the No Contest. Triple H coming out too late was the right call for me after he made the save last week. The main talking point I’m sure next week will be where the hell John Cena was. I’m also curious as to how Vince deals with Umaga!

Sorry to those who i didn't review as said over weekend but Dad's wife gave birth on Saturday a couple of days early so went to my dads for a couple of my days. Noticed Nige has a Raw recently posted so that will be my priority for tommorow, and i owe reviews for Nov and craguuscool aswell so they will be up by friday aswell. The last editions of Raw and Smackdown before Survivor Series will be posted in one post at the start of next week.

WWE Smackdown!
Bakersfield California
9th 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 Elijah Burke taking on Rey Mysterio and Kane facing Finlay and Chavo Guerrero in a Handicap Match. Cole says that Ric Flair was booked to be Kane’s partner but he is in Washington DC to find Batista tonight and try persuade him to return to the WWE.

For the second week in a row we start the show off with the VIP Lounge as the Playas Club make their way down to the ring. MVP cuts right to the chase as he straight away introduces his guest for the show Matt Hardy. Matt Hardy makes his way down to the ring and gets straight in MVP’s face and they lock eyes, before MVP backs off and tells Burke and Cor Von to leave the ring and stand outside it. MVP welcomes Hardy back to Smackdown and says he admits he is surprised that Hardy returned from the beating as quick as he did. MVP says he is gonna give Hardy his dues and says he has got a lot of gut to get in MVP’s face after the damage MVP did to Hardy three weeks ago. MVP goes to show the footage when Hardy says that they are not going to be watching anything, because he is out here to talk and not to look back at the past. Hardy says that for the past few months MVP has been scared of Matt Hardy and that he has done everything he can to make sure that he isn’t around to have a US Title shot. Hardy talks about the two holding the Tag Team Titles and the attack three weeks ago before telling MVP that at Survivor Series his fear is going to become reality. Because at Survivor Series he will be 100% and recovered, and he will take the United States Title.

MVP quickly cuts in saying that he did Matt Hardy a favour because without him, Matt Hardy would never carry a title. MVP says that the only way Hardy can win titles is to be carried in a Tag Team by better wrestlers like Jeff Hardy and himself. MVP says that without MVP, Matt Hardy was a nobody. MVP says that when they lost their Tag Titles he realised that he was sick and tired of carrying around dead weight, so he looked to the future and saw two of the best talents in the WWE in Elijah Burke and Marcus Cor Von. MVP tells Hardy that he needs to get over the fact that he just simply doesn’t have the talent it takes to be in the WWE. MVP says that at Survivor Series Hardy is going to step in the ring toe to toe with the man that is the future of this company. MVP tells Hardy that he needs to step down, because at if he decides to wrestle against MVP at Survivor Series. The attack that MVP did to Hardy would be overshadowed by the one, which ended Matt Hardy’s career at Survivor Series. Matt Hardy smile before saying that if MVP does end his career, Hardy is going to take MVP right with him. The two men then get into each other’s faces and they shove and slap one another, before they go at it and Matt Hardy is all over MVP. That is until Cor Von and Burke rush the ring and jump Hardy from behind, and the three Playas Club members start tearing Hardy apart. But then the lights in the arena turn off and when they turn on THE UNDERTAKER is standing in the middle of the ring. Undertaker then goes after the three Playas Club members wanting revenge for the attack they put on him last week along with Edge. Taker takes Cor Von to the outside with a Clothesline, before grabbing Burke and tossing him over the top rope ontop of Marcus Cor Von. MVP then flees the ring and leaves with his cronies, as Undertaker stares down the ramp at them as we go to a commercial.


Commercial Break


When we return from the commercial, Michael Cole reveals that during the break after the incident we just saw. Teddy Long has made a match between The Undertaker and the man who power bombed him through a table last week Marcus Cor Von.

Match 1
Singles Match
Elijah Burke v Rey Mysterio


We kick off the wrestling side of the show with a very fast paced back and forth match between two of the finest wrestlers on Smackdown. In the early going we saw a lot of counters exchanged between the two men with neither man seeming to gaining an upper step in the match. That all changed when Mysterio went for a Bodyscissors Bulldog, only for Burke to counter it in mid air into a Sitout Faceplant. Elijah Burke then started to work over the arm of Rey Mysterio doing the smart thing by keeping the speedy Rey Mysterio down on the mat so he can’t do what he does best. Elijah Burke had Mysterio locked in a Scissored Armbar, in which the match looked over for Mysterio. But Burke held onto the ropes for extra leverage and when the ref spotted this he told Burke to let go of the hold. A furious Burke then wasted his time arguing with the ref, which allowed Mysterio to recover, and Mysterio hit Burke with an enzuigiri taking him to the outside. Mysterio from then got back into the match using his speed and high flying prowess to come close to victory on several occasions. But Burke seemed to have the win when he set Mysterio up for the Elijah Express, but Mysterio moved and Burke’s knees crashed into the turnbuckle. Mysterio then set Burke up for the 619 which he executed before going for the West Coast Pop, but Elijah Burke moved out of the way just in time and then rolled Mysterio up from behind with a handful of tights and steals the victory.

Winner: Elijah Burke in 7:22


After the match Elijah Burke flees out of the ring and holds onto his head celebrating, as Rey Mysterio is in the ring with his head in his hands angry that Burke picked up a victory from out of nowhere. Mysterio complains to the referee over a pull of the trunks by Burke as we cut live to Washington DC.

We cut live to Washington DC where a limo arrives outside Batista’s home. The limo driver opens the door where we see Ric Flair step out of it. Flair approaches the front door, before taking a huge sigh and knocking the door. A few moments later the door opens and we see a woman opens the door and Flair greets the woman who we find out is his girlfriend. Flair asks her if Batista is in, and she replies saying that he is currently at a pub just a few blocks away down the road. Flair thanks her and says he knows what pub she is talking about and goes to walk off when she tells him to stop, before saying that something has been up with Dave over the last month and he hasn’t been the same. Flair tells her he knows and then walks off as we go to a commercial.


Commercial Break


Match 2
Singles Match
Chuck Palumbo v William Regal with UKConnection


We get a pretty decent enough match here with William Regal carrying Palumbo to a watchable match. In the early going the powerhouse Palumbo was all over Regal using his power and size to his advantage, but the veteran Regal took advantage after distraction from Paul Burchill allowed Regal to attack Palumbo from behind with a Chop Block. William Regal then started to work over the knee of Palumbo, with Regal knowing that this is the smartest way of being able to put Palumbo away. William Regal looked to finish the match when he went for a Single Legged Boston Crab on Palumbo, but he couldn’t get the move on as Palumbo used his free leg to kick Regal away. This infuriated Regal who looked into his tights and pulled out some Brass Knucks. Regal went to hit Palumbo with the deadly weapon, but got caught off guard by Palumbo who hit him with a Big Boot. It was then all Palumbo till the ending of the match when he set Regal up for the Full Throttle, only to drop him when he saw Paul Burchill push Palumbo’s motorcycle to the ground on the outside. This distracted Palumbo for long enough so Regal could come from behind with a Half Nelson Suplex, before making Palumbo tap out to the Regal Stretch.

Winner: William Regal in 6:14


After the match we return to Washington DC where we see Ric Flair entering a pub. Flair looks around the pub, before spotting Batista playing pool by himself. Flair approaches Batista and greets the Animal, who totally ignores Flair and walks to a table where he takes a swig of beer. Flair asks Batista if they can have a chat, but is once again ignored. Flair rubs his hands through his hair in annoyance, before asking Batista if he wants a game of pool. Batista this time looks to Ric Flair and tells him that he will start as we go to a commercial break.

Commercial Break


When we return from commercial we see the World Heavyweight Champion Edge making his way down to the ring to some huge heat from the crowd. Edge grabs a mic and tells the crowd to shut up. Edge says he is the greatest World Heavyweight Champion in history and he will prove that when he beats The Undertaker at Survivor Series. Edge says he has a good feeling about tonight, because tonight he will sit down with some popcorn and watch Marcus Cor Von beat the living hell out of the The Undertaker. Leaving just enough of him so that Edge can embarrass The Undertaker at Survivor Series. Edge says that he doesn’t want to wait till Survivor Series though he wants to give Undertaker a first hand look at what is going to happen to him at Survivor Series. Edge then declares he has issued an open challenge to anyone in the back. He calls the person who has accepted his challenge out before looking in the camera and tells the Undertaker to watch his future. Edge then tosses the mic to the outside as Sabu’s music hits and he makes his way down towards the ring. Edge frowns not thinking he would of got a tough a opponent as Sabu.

Match 3
Singles Match
Edge v Sabu


Edge gets more than he bargained for in this match, as the veteran ECW extremist Sabu takes Edge to the limits in what proved to be a very tough match for the Rated R Superstar. In the early going Sabu was all over Edge hitting him with a lot of moves, which came from springboarding off the top rope. Sabu looked to have the match won with a Springboard Tornado DDT early on, which the World Heavyweight Champion barely kicked out of. Edge finally gained some control in the match after he shoved Sabu off the top rope, down onto the concrete floor on the outside. A furious Edge then started to show his physical side whipping Sabu shoulder first into the Steel Steps, before dropping him with a snap suplex on the steel ramp way. Edge then started to come close to victory on several occasions, his closest being after hitting the Edge-O-Matic onto Sabu who just barely kicked out. The match ended with some back and forth wrestling between the two which saw Sabu come extremely close to a shock victory when he countered the Edgecution into a Bridging Gutwrench Suplex. But Sabu made one Springboard move attempt too many, as Edge caught him in mid with a Spear to take an impressive victory in a hard fought encounter.

Winner: Edge in 8:49


After the match Edge continues his attack on Sabu hitting him with a Second Spear before going to the outside and grabbing a Steel Chair. Edge brings it into the ring and goes to use Sabu’s head as a Tennis Ball when Sabu’s fellow extremist Tommy Dreamer sprints down to the ring. Dreamer pounds away at Edge, until he receives a low blow followed by a chair shot to the skull. Edge then does the same thing to Sabu, before hitting Sabu with Undertaker’s finisher the Tombstone Piledriver onto the Steel Chair. The crowd then boos Edge who mocks The Undertaker by trying to turn his eyes inside out and he sticks his tongue out just like Taker would do. Edge then raises his World Heavyweight Championship in the air as we go back to Washington DC.

We then return from Washington DC where we see Ric Flair talking to Batista as they continue their game of pool with Flair telling Batista that everybody wants him back in the WWE. Flair tells Batista that he doesn’t want to leave like this. Flair tells Batista that everybody has their ups and downs and they have their wins and their losses, but they recover from their losses and that’s what Batista needs to do. Flair tells Batista if he comes back he guarantees that he will once again become a World Heavyweight Champion. Batista looks at Flair once again keeping quiet, to which Flair puts down his cue and walks over to Batista. Flair tells Batista that he doesn’t want to be remembered as the man who lost to The Undertaker and walked out like a coward. Flair says that he knows Batista wants to be remembered as the best there ever was and to do that he needs to come back and prove he is the best. Flair then puts his hand out and asks Batista for his decision. Batista then puts his cue down and he has a thing to himself. It looks as though he may shake his hand, but Batista instead shoves Flair out of the way and tips over the Snooker Table before throwing a chair against the wall. Batista then shouts at Flair that the only person he listens to is himself and that he does not need Ric Flair. Batista tells Flair that he has quit and there is nothing anybody can do to change his mind. Batista then offers Flair some advice and tells him to go retire old man, and do something worthwhile with his life. This angers Ric Flair who then slaps Batista across the face and shouts at him telling him not to talk to him like that. Flair tells Batista that he was the one that made him the star he is today, and he talks to him like that. Flair then tells Batista to be a coward and quit, because as far as he is concerned Batista can go kiss his ass. Batista stares a hole through Flair and looks at the ground nodding his head, before storming out of the pub. Ric Flair wipes his eyes in frustration and shakes his head as we go to a commercial break.


Commercial Break


Match 4
Handicap Match
Chavo Guerrero and Finlay v Kane


What was supposed to be a tag team match also featuring Ric Flair with Kane, we get a handicap match with Ric Flair out in Washington failing to bring Batista back to Smackdown. However Kane puts up a very good fight of it taking on both Chavo Guerrero and Finlay, showing a lot of anger as we saw backstage. In fact Kane didn’t let either Finlay or Chavo get in any offence at the beginning as he cleaned house, going through his move set on both men. But the numbers games came too much as when Kane went to Chokeslam Chavo, that little bastard Hornswoggle got involved and distracted Kane. The referee tried to resolve the situation by ordering Hornswoggle to get off the apron, as from behind Kane came Finlay with a low blow using the Shillelagh. Finlay and Chavo then took control of the match, keeping the Big Red Machine Grounded and keeping the freshest man in the ring continually by making quick tags. Kane looked to make a fight back when he avoided a Celtic Cross, but when Chavo distracted Kane on the apron as he bounced off the ropes, Finlay came back with a Clothesline to Kane. But Kane finally made a comeback into the match after he counted a Gory Bomb attempt by Chavo into a back body drop. Kane then once again started to clean house on both Finlay and Chavo, tossing Finlay out of the ring. Kane then grabbed Chavo by the throat and hit him with a devastating Chokeslam. Kane made the cover but at the count of 2, Finlay hit Kane over the back of the head with the Shillelagh which the referee saw this time forcing the referee to call for the bell.

Winner: Kane via DQ in 7:35


After the match Finlay repeatedly drives the Shillelagh into the chest of Kane, as Chavo climbs up top and hits a Frog Splash. The only ally on Kane’s team at Survivor Series in the arena Rey Mysterio sprints down to the ring to make the save. Finlay and Chavo see this and quickly leave the ring. Rey Mysterio is left in the ring shaking his head as Kane slowly gets to his feet, as at Survivor Series Mysterio, Kane and Flair will currently have to fight Burke, Cor Von, Guerrero and Finlay in a Handicap Match because of Batista.

We then go backstage to see Cruiserweight Champion Jamie Noble standing by Josh Matthews. Josh Matthews announces that at Survivor Series the forth match in the best of 7 series featuring Jamie Noble and Kid Kash will take place. Josh asks Jamie how he feels to of finally got the weight off his back and finally get one over Kid Kash. Jamie Noble once again acts oblivious to the fact that Kid Kash has beaten him on at least five occasions telling him to shut up because he has never lost to Kid Kash. Noble tells Josh that last week he destroyed Kid Kash, saying that he is currently resting at home because of a hurt leg because of what Jamie Noble did to him last week. Noble says that what he did last week proved that he is the man to beat in the Cruiserweight Division. Noble says that he now has the momentum in the best of 7 series and he guarantees that he will walk out of the series as the Cruiserweight Champion.


Commercial Break


We go backstage when we return from commercial where Marcus Cor Von is lifting some weights backstage when Edge walks in to the scene. Edge tries to be friendly with Cor Von saying “What’s up Playa” to which Cor Von gets to his feet and asks Edge to repeat what he just said. An intimidated Edge says it doesn’t matter before trying to pump Cor Von up, saying he will give him the next title shot if he takes out The Undertaker tonight. Cor Von tells Edge not to worry saying that here in the Serengeti only the strongest survive. He says it’s hunt or be hunted, or kill or be killed. And that pretty soon Undertaker will fall victim to the POUNCE! Cor Von then walks off as Edge looks on in confusion at Cor Von’s speech, when Cor Von walks back and gets in Edge’s face and shouts “Period” before heading off for good as Edge mouths “Pounce Period” before smiling notcing that Cor Von is very pumped up for his match.

Match 5
Tag Team Match
Billy Kidman and Jimmy Wang Yang v Frankie Kazarian and Jamie Noble


We get a short but solid tag team match here, which is mainly to make Cruiserweight Champion Jamie Noble looking strong during the middle of his best of 7 series with Kid Kash. In the early going we got some back and forth wrestling between Noble and Wang Yang, until they tagged in their partners and Billy Kidman started to get the better off Frankie Kazarian after hitting him with the BK Bomb. Billy Kidman and Jimmy Wang then started to show off their high flying prowess with Billy Kidman taking Kazarian to the outside with a Hurricarana and Jimmy Wang Yang diving to the outside with a Springboard Moonsault onto a standing Frankie Kazarian. But mid match Billy Kidman took a huge bump when he was pushed off the top rope headfirst onto the barricade on the outside. This allowed Jamie Noble to tag in and gain an advantage as he went through his move set on Kidman. When Noble hit the Tiger Bomb onto Kidman, Jimmy Wang Yang went to make the save when Kazarian pulled him to the outside and tossed him into the steel steps. Jamie Noble then sent a clear message to his adversary Kid Kash as he finished Kidman off with Kid Kash’s own finisher the Dead Level.

Winners: Frankie Kazarian and Jamie Noble in 5:58


We then go backstage where we see Rey Mysterio entering Teddy Long’s office. Mysterio greets Long before talking to him about the 8 man tag at Survivor Series and Mysterio asks Long if they can pick a replacement for Batista in that match. Teddy Long tells Rey that Flair said to him a few weeks ago that either he would bring Batista back into the WWE and be able to compete, or they would fight one man down. Teddy Long apologises to Rey but says it is too late to choose another partner. Mysterio questions Long’s decision saying they have got 9 days to choose another partner, but Long reiterates that it is too late and that he can’t do anything about it playa.

We then go to ringside where Cole and JBL talk about what they just heard and they run down the Survivor Series card. They then send it to our final commercial.


Commercial Break


*Video Recap of Cor Von sending Undertaker through an announce table with a Powerbomb last week*


Match 6
Singles Match
Marcus Cor Von v The Undertaker


We get an entertaining all out brawl to close the show with Cor Von taking the fight straight to the Undertaker. Taker was surprised in the early going by the aggressiveness of Cor Von who looked to prove himself against The Undertaker. Cor Von looked to have the match won early on in the match when he hit the Russian Legsweep floated over into a Fujiwara Armbar, but fortunately for Taker he was close enough to crawl to the ropes. Undertaker finally got into the match properly after escaping a Sleeper Hold, and from there he proceeded to go through his move set hitting the Snake Eyes followed by the Big Boot then followed by Old School. Taker got his first real chance of taking the win after a running DDT, which Cor Von barely kicked out of. The last stages of the match we saw some back and forth wrestling with both men having numerous chances to win the match. Undertaker kicked out after Cor Von hit the Alpha Slam, while Cor Von kicked out after Taker hit a superplex off the top rope to Cor Von. The end of the match saw Cor Von look to go for the Pounce on Taker, only for Taker to move out of the way and for Cor Von to crash into an exposed turnbuckle which he took the padding off earlier in the match. Undertaker then turns a groggy Cor Von upside down, and drops him with the Tombstone Piledriver for the hard fought victory.

Winner: Undertaker in 10:00


The Undertaker has no time to celebrate his victory however as his music plays, some druids roll a casket down to the ring. Undertaker looks on in confusion and he leaves the ring as the druids return backstage after leaving the Casket by the ring. The Undertaker goes to open the Casket as from under the ring appears EDGE! Edge charges up at a unaware Taker and goes for a Spear, but Undertaker sees him coming and catches him with a back body drop with Edge landing ontop of the casket. Edge holds onto his back in agony, as Undertaker stomps away at Edge before opening the lid to the casket. Undertaker then lifts Edge to his feet and grabs him by the throat, and Chokeslams him into an empty casket which was supposed to be a trap from the Rated R Superstar. The Undertaker then shuts the lid to the casket and the show comes to an end with The Undertaker doing his Deadman pose with just nine days to go to Survivor Series.

Default Re: WWE: Turning The Corner

First off, congratulations on the new arrival to the family. I hope you don’t lose too much sleep from the crying!

Nige’s Smackdown Feedback

Nice little run down, but I feel sorry for Kane. It’s a pity he has to take part in a handicap match just because Flair’s going to see Dave (man I look forward to that)

That was a brilliant promo with Matt and MVP. The tension between them in the build up to this was written perfectly, but this was the first chance you’ve had to really let them have a good go at each other, and they certainly did that. I particularly liked the bit with Matt saying we’re not looking at some footage and making it all about the future, that was well structured. The intensity between them increased well to add some real spice to the end of the promo, allowing Burke & Cor Von to get involved, but The Undertaker coming to Matt’s rescue after last week makes a lot of booking sense. An ever so sweet start

Taker against Cor Von will be a great main event, and it’s a great way to further Cor Von’s development. I’m not sure about just having this match announced by Cole as I would prefer to have gotten a reaction out of Cor Von by having Teddy Long go to him or have The VIP Club go to him and complain about Taker assaulting them, then have Teddy come back at them with this

Burke & Mysterio was a great match, but straight after the break with Burke having been taken down by Taker, meaning he’d have to leave the arena and come back again. If he was having his match straight after, I’d have Teddy do come out and tell Burke his match with Rey is happening right now and put a break in to explain it. Anyway, solid match and like someone said in my review, does Burke ever hit the Elijah Express in BTB? It’s too good a move for a counter, but it was a great counter for Burke later to pick up the win by holding the tights, so that was sweet and the perfect booking decision

Live to DC? The illusion of Smackdown being live here is great. I thought when Batista’s bitch told Flair Dave’s not been right for a month, he’d stay for a while instead of the I know and walk off. It made him seem ignorant to be honest. Dragging it out until later is cool and I just wonder whether you’re going to set up something different in this bar

Yeah I love it when you put guys down in a nice way like here with Regal carrying Palumbo to a watchable match. I was a bit annoyed that Palumbo dominated after the big boot since Regal had everything to lose, but the distraction from Mr. Burchill was the best way to change that and continue to show how great a team they are. The tap out too of a big man like Palumbo further reinforces how strong they are

I haven’t got a clue where you are going with this Batista storyline. I assumed that he was just pissed off to see Flair, and when he said he’s play pool, it seemed more like a depression problem. The mystery continues, but I like that you’re breaking up you teasing little git

Edge coming out to brag is always something to enjoy. I think playing the mocking card and having him sit back and watch Taker was exactly what he would do as opposed to sending him a message, but he knew he wasn’t going to get someone who would worry him, so it worked. Sabu was a decent choice as he would get the fans involved and would obviously threaten at Edge for some parts of the match, which he did in the early going. The mid air spear thought was great and added something that we don’t always see, so that was nice in itself. I loved him battering Dreamer and trying to mock The Undertaker was just funny and again, original!

I loved this instalment of the Flair/Batista segments. You totally went down the right road with Flair using the don’t look like a coward and walk away line. That was always going to be the line that would bring Dave back if anything. I wasn’t expecting Dave after his “thing”, not think (there’s been a few little typos) to maybe come round a little, but not to snap like he did. From there Flair was great, mentioning he made Batista and he can go kiss his ass. I wonder if that’s the end of Dave, but I don’t expect it to be

I guess it would be a struggle for Chavo & Finlay to overcome Kane no matter what, but a dirty win would have done them better as it doesn’t inspire much confidence in the heel team winning at Survivor Series in a handicap match when they can’t win one here. Rey coming down to the rescue was the right thing to do, but it was weird after watching Raw last night

Jamie’s interviews are always funny here, but the fact he keeps bringing up the lie that he’s never lost to Kash is wearing a little thin now. Kash taking time off makes sense and I’m a little surprised to see you having their next match on a PPV having already written a PPV match for them. The next match is obviously the biggest one to date as it will either really put the cat amongst the pigeons with a Noble win, but a Kash win would all but seal it

This was a funny little segment to build up to the main event. Edge being the typical coward that he is was amusing to read, but not as much as Cor Von was. I loved the bit at the end with Edge mouthing “Pounce period”, great!

I’m all for cruiserweight matches, but this one was just here for no real reason but to give Noble a win. It was a good match for sure, it’s just a strange match to have before the main event when there’s no meaning to it. Noble winning a singles match would have been fine earlier on, plus he had the promo too which made this a little pointless. But I’m a sucker for a cruiserweight match in the end and can appreciate the action

I can see why Rey would be pissed as 9 days would sure as hell be long enough, but if Flair promised Teddy he’d get Batista back, then it becomes a bit less questionable. I still see Batista coming to play though

If any match was calling out for a DQ finish or a bullshit ending, it was this one. Neither man could afford to lose, well clean anyway, and it was a big surprise to me that you had Cor Von do a clean job after the push he has been on lately. Taker going in to a world title match does dictate he needs to win, but a DQ win for him wouldn’t have been so bad here. Where the hell were MVP & Burke anyway? They should be supporting each other in the early stages of them becoming a faction. Edge coming to play had to be expected, but the casket spot was great and spices things up for sure going in to the penultimate Smackdown before the Survivor Series

Default Re: WWE: Turning The Corner

Bit rushed these shows I will admit, but I just want to start properly writing Survivor Series. Here is the last Raw and Smackdown before the show so enjoy


WWE Raw
Topeka Kansas
12th November 2007


*Opening Video and Pyro*


We then go to ringside where JR and Jerry “The King” Lawler welcome us to the show. They run down tonight’s card, which includes Ken Kennedy v, Jeff Hardy, and a Contract Signing will take place for this Sunday’s WWE Title Match between Randy Orton and Chris Jericho.

We start off the show with the entire Corporation coming down to the ring. Randy Orton starts the promo off by quickly hyping his WWE Title defence against Chris Jericho in six days time. Orton says that he is going to prove that Chris Jericho doesn’t have what it takes anymore, when he beats him within an inch of life and retains the WWE Championship. Orton says that he is going to save his anger towards Chris Jericho for Sunday, but this week he wants to focus his anger on the big fat Samoan slob who turned his back on him and the entire Corporation last week. Randy Orton gets in Umaga’s face and says that he is the WWE Champion, which means that Umaga should of did the better for the entire Corporation and lie down for the champ, but instead he wanted to tear Orton apart. Randy Orton then slaps Umaga across the face, and asks Umaga if he knows who the hell he is. This infuriates Umaga who goes to attack Orton, when Vince McMahon and Estrada block him off. Vince tells them to cut if off, saying that the Corporation does not need this. Vince tells them that no one is bigger than the Corporation itself and they should work as a team. Vince tells Orton that Umaga did something really stupid last week, but it was Randy Orton who walked out on Umaga allowing Triple H to attack him with a Sledgehammer so Umaga in some ways had a right to be upset with Orton. Vince then tells the two to make up and shake hands, and Orton reluctantly does so but doesn’t come off so well as Umaga doesn’t know what the hell Orton is doing. Vince quickly moves on saying that tonight Umaga is going to make up for what he did last week by taking out the Corporation’s biggest threats. Vince announces that Umaga will take on John Cena and Triple H in a Handicap Match. Umaga shouts out loud in Samoan, as Orton smiles and nods in approval at Vince’s announcement. Vince goes to continue to speak when he is cut off by “My time is now” and John Cena appears on the ramp with a mic.

Cena comes out and says that it is usually Chris Jericho’s job of recent weeks to stop the Corporation boring everyone else senseless, but the only way he is going to stay awake through a whole episode of Raw is if he comes out here and shuts them up himself. John Cena goes through all of the Corporation members running them down one by one. This eventually leads to Orton taking the mic saying that Cena has no right to come out and interrupt the Corporation. Orton says that since Cena is no longer a main eventer, he should move on and stay in the mid card where he belongs, as he doesn’t deserve to be standing this close to superstars the quality of Randy Orton. John Cena laughs before saying that after Randy Orton loses the WWE Championship at Survivor Series, he will be the first man to get a title shot and he will once again be WWE Champion. Cena says for now though he feels a bit funny, probably because he was drinking some beer with Stone Cold before the show. Cena says he either might be drunk or he might be stupid, but heel he wants to kick some ass in Topeka Kansas. Cena then heads on down to the ring and is about to get in it when he halts just before entering it. John Cena then grabs hold of Ken Kennedy’s leg and pulls him to the outside and tosses him shoulder first into the Steel Steps. John Cena doesn’t appear to be so stupid as he then grabs a Steel Chair and enters the ring with it, to which Vince McMahon instructs them all to leave the ring. John Cena tosses the Chair down the ramp at the Corporation members who tell Cena they will make him pay as we go to a commercial break.


Commercial Break


Match 1
Singles Match
Jeff Hardy v Ken Kennedy


Hardy and Kennedy put on a fast paced back and forth match to kick off the wrestling side of the show, with the two men given enough time to produce a good match. After some back and forth technical wrestling to start off the match, Jeff Hardy was allowed to use his speed and agility to hit some high flying moves getting the better of Kennedy. Hardy crashed and burned however when Kennedy moved out of the way, as Hardy catapulted himself over the top rope to the outside. Ken Kennedy then gained the momentum after he hit a running boot, sandwiching Hardy’s shoulder between the steel steps and his boot on the outside. Kennedy worked over the shoulder inside the ring, with his main intention being to make Hardy submit. Kennedy looked as though he would just do that after applying an abdominal stretch, but Hardy was able to elbow his way out and then get back into the match with a sit-down Jawbreaker. The last few minutes of the match we saw several close falls exchanged between the two men. Jeff Hardy was just milliseconds away from winning it after hitting the Whisper in the Wind, only for Kennedy to get his shoulder up off the mat. Jeff Hardy went for the Twist of Fate only for Kennedy to push Hardy into the referee and then take advantage with a low blow. Kennedy then hit the Mic Check, before taking Hardy to the top rope. Kennedy looked to put the exclamation mark on the victory when he hit the Green Bay Plunge on Jeff Hardy, but as he made the cover RVD rushed into the ring and attacked Kennedy! The referee called for the bell giving Kennedy a DQ win.

Winner: Ken Kennedy via DQ in 13:55


After the match RVD rushes to the outside of the ring and grabs hold of a Steel Chair and brings it into the ring with him. RVD then tosses it into the hands of Ken Kennedy and hits him with the Van Daminator. RVD goes to continue the attack, but Ken Kennedy rolls out of the ring just in time. Ken Kennedy crawls down the ramp looking on at RVD in shock, as we go backstage.

We go backstage to see Todd Grisham standing by the Tag Team Champions The Worlds Greatest Tag Team. Todd asks them how they feel with the odds against them at Survivor Series when they have to defend their titles at Survivor Series. Shelton Benjamin cuts in asking Josh how does he think they feel, complaining that they have to face three teams in one match to defend their titles. He moves to the positive side however saying they are called The Worlds Greatest Tag Team for a reason, because they are the best team in the world. He says that he doesn’t care if you are two red neck hicks, two wannabe gangsters, or two highflying punks who look as though they are yet to go through puberty. Benjamin says that he and Charlie form the greatest team in the history of the WWE, and there is no stopping them ever.


Commercial Break


Match 2
Tag Team Match
The Highlanders v The Worlds Greatest Tag Team


The next match of the evening, saw the Tag Team Champions Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin in action, as they prepare for their 4 way tag team match at Survivor Series. It was a match that was mostly dominated by Benjamin and Haas who looked to send a message to their opponents at Survivor Series. During the match their opponents at Survivor Series Cryme Time, The Redneck Wrecking Crew and the Hooligans came down to the ring at different times to scout the Champions. This distracted Benjamin and Haas several times, and the Highlanders nearly stole the victory after Robbie rolled up a distracted Shelton Benjamin from behind, only for Haas to make the save. The end of the match saw the WGTT raise the tempo, and Benjamin leapfrogged Haas hitting a Leapfrog Body Guillotine onto Rory. Benjamin then took Rory’s head off with a Superkick, before Haas finished him off with the Haas of Pain.

Winners: The Worlds Greatest Tag Team in 4:44


After the match the Worlds Greatest Tag Team hug and celebrate their victories before holding their Championships in the air as the three teams on the outside watch on. Cade and Murdoch signal to them that they will take the Tag Titles off them at Survivor Series, to which Cryme Time approach Cade and Murdoch and say that they will be the ones to take the titles. London and Kendrick get involved as the Worlds Greatest Tag Team exit the ring and back off down the ramp, as the three teams at ringside break out into a six man brawl. Referee’s come down to end the madness, as the Worlds Greatest Tag Team watch on with a big smile on their face.

We then go backstage to see John Morrison backstage with his manager/girlfriend Melina and Morrison asks Melina to bounce a nickel off his abs to which Melina tells him that their match is next. Morrison says he knows that but he needs some sort of warm-up before their match to which Melina comes onto him and kisses him. We hear a “Das Cool” in the background, and they turn around to see Carlito in the background nodding with a smile on his face and an apple in his hand. Melina calls Carlito a pervert, to which Carlito tells her to calms down and says he just came here to talk about something he heard. Carlito says he doesn’t usually like to tell tales, but overheard CM Punk talking to Jeff Hardy backstage earlier, and he called Melina a slut. Melina shouts “What” to which Carlito says that’s right and he went up to him and told him “das not cool”. Morrison doesn’t believe Carlito, to which Carlito says he didn’t really approach him but he would of. Carlito tells Morrison that if he takes out Punk after Survivor Series he will give him an Intercontinental Title. Morrison and Melina laugh at Carlito’s stupidity, and Morrison says that the Intercontinental Title is coming back to the Palace of Wisdom before walking away with Melina. With Melina and Morrison out of the way we hear Carlito mutter under his breath “What a Slut” as we go to a commercial break.


Commercial Break


When we return from commercial we go backstage to see Chris Jericho buying a coffee, and turns around to see John Cena. There is an uneasy moment of silence between the two men, before Cena to break the silence says that he wishes Jericho good luck ahead of his match. Chris Jericho tells Cena he doesn’t need any, to which Cena says that if he beat Jericho, and Orton beat Cena there is no way Chris Jericho is going to walk out of Survivor Series with the WWE Championship. Jericho asks Cena to repeat what he just said, before Cena says he was just kidding and he knows that Chris Jericho is going to walk out with the WWE Championship around his waist. Cena says that he also knows that after Survivor Series he is going to get a title shot, and take back what is rightfully his and that is the WWE Championship. Jericho laughs before telling Cena that when he sees Val Venis, tell his fellow midcarders that the next WWE Champion said hello. Chris Jericho then smirks and walks off, as Cena looks on staring right through Jericho as we cut back to ringside.

Match 3
Intergender Tag Team Match
CM Punk and Mickie James v John Morrison and Melina


We witnessed a very entertaining Tag Match with some good action between both the males and the females. CM Punk and John Morrison started off the match in some very fast paced back and forth action, with both men knowing each other like the back of their hand. CM Punk looked to get the early win when he set Morrison up for the GTS, but Melina distracted Punk which allowed Morrison to slide off Punk’s shoulders and drop him with an inverted DDT. The divas then tagged themselves into the match and Jerry Lawler went mad with excitement as Melina and Mickie went at it in a true cat fight. Mickie James just like Punk looked to have the win when she hit Melina with the Mick Kick, but John Morrison got into the ring and pulled Mickie off Melina. This angered Mickie who slapped Morrison across the face. The end of the match saw CM Punk hit the GTS, and Melina rushed into make the save only for Mickie James to tackle her to the outside. This distracted the referee, allowing The Intercontinental Champion Carlito to rush into the ring and hit his rival Punk with the BackCracker. Carlito then rushed out of the ring as John Morrison crawled over to steal the victory.

Winners: John Morrison and Melina in 7:01


After the match we go backstage to see Josh Matthews standing by Hardcore Holly. Josh shows Holly footage of Cody Rhodes turning on him several weeks ago and asks him how he feels ahead of his Falls Count Anywhere Match with Cody Rhodes. Holly says Cody has done all he can to back away from his challenge ever since he turned on him. Holly reminds us that Cody faked an injury, and attacked him before their match two weeks ago. But tonight there will be nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. Holly says that the only thing Cody can do right tonight is take an asskicking like a man. Holly then walks away as we go to a commercial break.

Commercial Break


Match 4
Falls Count Anywhere Match
Cody Rhodes v Hardcore Holly


This match was very violent and seemed like a squash match for Hardcore Holly, who straight from the get go looked like he wanted to punish Cody Rhodes for turning on him several weeks ago. We saw one of Holly’s main qualities in stiffing up rookies, as he looked to put a real beating on Cody Rhodes. Cody did get some offence in the ring however when he pulled out a fire extinguisher from underneath the ring and sprayed it into the eyes of Hardcore, before dropping him with a DDT on the Steel Ramp. Cody wasted time however as he picked up a Steel Chair, and he charged up at Hardcore Holly with it, and Holly caught him with a Back Body Drop on the Steel Ramp. The two men then brawled up the Ramp, where Holly hit Cody with a camera over the skull before signalling for the end. Holly set him up for the Alabama Slammer, WHEN SUDDENLY A MAN COMES FROM BEHIND HOLLY AND HITS HIM OVER THE HEAD WITH A BRIEFCASE! Hardcore Holly appears to be knocked out, as the man pulls Cody ontop of Holly allowing Cody to take the victory.

Winner: Cody Rhodes in 5:59


After the match the mystery man pulls Cody Rodes to his feet and the two men embrace. Moments later “Everyone’s got a Price” hits and the Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase walks out onto the stage with a mic to a big pop from the crowd on his return to the WWE. Ted DiBiase does his trademark laugh and says that he is back in the WWE. Biase says he is back in the WWE, to manage the careers of the two biggest talents in the WWE. Biase then introduces the mystery man as his son Ted DiBiase Jr, and says that he and Cody Rhodes will form the greatest Tag Team to ever step into the WWE. Biase then finishes off by saying that his son and Cody Rhodes are simply priceless. Ted DiBiase’s music then hits as he opens the briefcase, which has a brick in it which knocked Hardcore out, and which also has thousands of dollars in it. Biase then shows off his money and says that everybody has a price for the Million Dollar Man.

We then go backstage into the Corporation’s locker room where we see Ken Kennedy walking into it tapping Jonathon Coachman very hardly on his injured neck and then sitting down and taking a drink, as we then see Randy Orton and Vince McMahon talking as Umaga walks in with Armando Estrada. Vince tells Estrada to tell Umaga that he brought Umaga in for a reason, because he is the toughest and meanest specimen in the WWE. Vince says that John Cena had the nerve to interrupt us and run us down, and Triple H has been doing the same thing for twelve years. Vince tells Umaga that he wants him to stop all that, by crippling John Cena and Triple H. Vince tells Umaga he wants him to take them out, and if he does so then he will prove why he deserves to be in the Corporation. Vince tells them to go because their match is next, and the two men walk out of the locker room with Randy Orton staring a hole through Umaga. Orton tells Vince that he doesn’t trust Umaga to which Vince tells him he has to because he is a huge asset. Vince then says that he and Jonathon Coachman will accompany Orton to the ring for his contract signing with Jericho. Vince then goes to talk with Orton about a plan, but we don’t get to here it as we go to a commercial break.


Commercial Break


Match 5
Handicap Match
John Cena and Triple H v Umaga with Armando Estrada


Very weird match in that the odds are against the heel in Umaga instead of the typical face being against the odds, and Umaga is also able to put on a valiant effort against both John Cena and Triple H taking the match right to them. However John Cena and Triple H dominated the early stages of the match with both men going through their moves sets on Umaga getting many near falls. However it was miscommunication between Cena and The Game, which allowed Umaga back into the match. Triple H accidentally took Cena down with a Clothesline and turned around into a Scoop Samoan Drop by Umaga. Umaga then started to dominate the match not allowing Triple H to make the tag to Cena. We saw a very physical Umaga, who put in a lot of punishment going through his move set on Triple H. Umaga hit the Samoan Wrecking Ball on Triple H and then went for the Samoan Spike, but Triple H was able to duck and drop Umaga with a DDT. Triple H was then able to tag in John Cena who seemed to show no anger towards Triple H, as he cleaned house on Umaga. John Cena went through his normal routine of moves, which led to Cena hitting Umaga with the F-U. John Cena then went to make the cover but Triple H signalled to Cena that he wanted to get one over his rival. John Cena looked reluctant but made the tag, and Triple H hit Umaga with the Pedigree and took the victory over his big rival.

Winners: John Cena and Triple H in 9:27


After the match there are no celebrations as John Cena immediately gets into Triple H’s face. John Cena is furious at Triple H believing that Triple H hit him on purpose earlier on in the match. The two biggest names in the ten man Survivor Series elimination match at Survivor Series get into a verbal exchange. It looks as though the two men are going to go at it as they start pushing one another, when out of nowhere comes Umaga who returns by taking both Triple H and John Cena down with a Clothesline. Umaga then hits both men with Samoan Spikes and leaves the ring, getting the final word despite losing the match as we go to our final commercial break.

Commercial Break


When we return to Raw, the ring is set up for the Contract Signing and the glass shatters and Stone Cold Steve Austin makes his way to the ring to a huge pop. Steve Austin gets straight down to business, introducing the challenger Chris Jericho to the ring followed by the WWE Champion Randy Orton who comes down with Vince McMahon and Jonathon Coachman. Before the signing even begins, Jericho rolls to the outside and grabs Coachman and throws him into the Steel Steps. Jericho then rolls back into the ring and tells Vince that the same thing will happen to him if he is not careful. Jericho then gets in Orton’s face and the two men instantly lock eyes, and Austin immediately tells them that if either man lays a finger on the other then he is going to kick there ass. Austin then asks both men to sign the contract, which they both do straight away with Orton trying to antagonise Orton by tossing the contract at Jericho’s head. After both men have signed the contract Randy Orton grabs a mic and says that this Sunday he is going prove that Chris Jericho doesn’t belong in the main event anymore, and that he is not the same man that beat The Rock and Stone Cold in the same night in 6 years ago. Orton says that just to make sure that he doesn’t have to embarrass Chris Jericho ever again have Survivor Series, he has made sure that it is written in the contract that if Chris Jericho loses at Survivor Series he will never ever get a title shot as long as Randy Orton is the WWE Champion. Chris Jericho looks down at the mat and smiles as the crowd gives Orton huge heat. Jericho takes a mic and says that he is fine with that, because he was able to make sure that there was a stipulation that Jericho wanted to be added to the match. Jericho says that he talked to Steve Austin, and they came together with a stipulation that if any Corporation member even shows their face during their match then they will be fired.

The crowd gives a huge pop as Orton immediately gets in Stone Cold’s face questioning his decision. Austin gives Orton the double bird not giving a damn about Orton’s complaint. Randy Orton then grabs his WWE Title and places it on his shoulders, before suddenly tipping the table right into Chris Jericho before taking him down with his WWE Championship right to the skull. Orton then mounts ontop of Jericho and starts pounding away at him, and Austin tries to stop Orton by pulling him off Jericho, but Orton shoves Austin out of the way and continues the beat down. Randy Orton then starts sizing up Jericho signalling for the RKO, as Austin looks at Orton in disgust as he brushes his chest. Chris Jericho begins to get to his feet, as Orton is suddenly spun around and Stone Cold drops the WWE Champion with a Stone Cold Stunner! The crowd gives a huge pop as Vince McMahon then gets in Austin’s face and asks him what the hell is he doing. Vince says he can get Austin fired from his GM Spot, but he is tapped on the back by Chris Jericho. Vince turns around and tries to reason with his Bastard Son, but Jericho trips him down onto the mat and locks on the Walls of Jericho onto his own father! Vince starts tapping for his life as Jericho’s music hits and Stone Cold calls for some beers. Austin tosses a beer to Chris Jericho who drinks most of it, before lifting up the WWE Championship. Jericho stands over Orton, and taps the beer can against the WWE Championship belt as the show comes to a close.


END OF SHOW



WWE Smackdown!
Wichita, Kansas
16th 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 main event as Finlay takes on Ric Flair, plus Teddy Long has forced MVP to put his US Title on the line just days before he was supposed to defend it against Matt Hardy, as he faces a former rival in Kane.

They are suddenly interrupted as we see the Cruiserweight Champion Jamie Noble and his rival Kid Kash going at it backstage in a full on brawl. Referee’s and Road Agents come into break the two men up.

We then cut straight back to the arena where the World Heavyweight Champion Edge, appears at the top of the ramp with a mic in hand. Edge announces than in memory of the legacy of The Undertaker, which will end at Survivor Series, Edge will conduct a funeral for The Undertaker’s career tonight. Edge then smirks as Elijah Burke’s music hits as we are ready for the first match of the evening.


Match 1
Singles Match
Elijah Burke v Rey Mysterio


For the second week in a row we open with an Elijah Burke v Rey Mysterio. Bit sameish you might think, but Mysterio and Burke had another entertaining match up with both men having a lot of chemistry. It was once again a fast paced back and forth encounter, with a lot of counters and a lot of near falls. After both men exchanged about eight successive pinning predicaments, Rey was able to send Burke to the outside and then leap over the top rope executing a Somersault Plancha. As the two fought on the outside Burke was able to gain the momentum countering an Irish Whip attempt by Mysterio, sending him head first into the Steel Ring Post. Elijah Burke then began to work over the head of Mysterio, on numerous occasions even attempting to unmask Mysterio. Burke executed three rolling German Suplex’s before heading to the top rope. Burke attempted a Diving Elbow Drop onto the heat of Mysterio, who rolled out of the way just in time. This gave Mysterio the time he needed to recuperate and get himself back into the match. We saw some entertaining action in the final stages of the match with Mysterio coming close to victory after a Tornado DDT, and then moments later attempts a Springboard Seated Senton only for Burke to catch Rey with a Powerbomb for a very close near fall. Rey Mysterio however got revenge for his loss to Burke the previous week, as he followed off the 619 with the Droppin the Dime for the victory.

Winner: Rey Mysterio in 9:11


Post match sees Rey Mysterio celebrate his victory with the fans at ringside relieved to of got revenge for his loss to Elijah Burke last week.

We then cut backstage where we once again see Jamie Noble and Kid Kash backstage, and the two men are shouting abuse at one another with referee’s and road agents between them. We then see Teddy Long step into the scene telling the Playas to calm down. Long tells them that if they want a piece of one another, they can do so at Survivor Series. But to make sure that nothing happens tonight he is going to put them in a Tag Team Match, as they will face the team of Drew McIntyre and Paul Burchill. Noble complains saying he is allergic to dirty stinky rednecks, to, which Teddy Long says that Noble has been teammates with Kash before and can do so again.

We then go to another area backstage where we see Kane and Ric Flair talking as we see Rey Mysterio walking into the scene having just won his match. Flair tells the other two men that he is sorry and knows he made a big mistake in putting his trust in Batista. Flair tells Kane that Batista proved him right, and that he is nothing more that a coward. Flair tells them that they might be one man down at Survivor Series, but reminds them that between them they have won 18 World Championships between them. Flair says that they are three of the best in the history of the WWE for a reason, and they can take on any challenge. Flair says they can take on four men by themselves and they don’t need another partner. Rey Mysterio tells Flair he is right as we go to a commercial break.


Commercial Break


Match 2
Singles Match
Chavo Guerrero v Tommy Dreamer


We witnessed a solid little match between two of the veterans on the Smackdown roster. Unfortunately there was a very quiet crowd for this match, as it was fairly unspectacular match and there was a lot of grounding and pounding. The only time somebody came close to victory during the first half of the match came when Chavo kicked out just before 3, after Dreamer executed a Fall Away Slam. Chavo locked on a Sleeper Hold onto Dreamer who looked out of it as the referee raised his hands three times, but in typical face style Dreamer was able to fight out of the submission hold and seemed to get a second life as he cleaned house on Guerrero. Dreamer looked to have the win when he set Chavo up for the DVD, but Chavo slid off his shoulders and pushed him straight into the referee. Chavo then hit Dreamer with a Low Blow, before dropping him with a DDT with the referee not seeing the low blow. Chavo then climbed to the top rope and used the move that his uncle made famous the Frog Splash and took another victory going into his match at Survivor Series.

Winner: Chavo Guerrero in 5:59


We then go backstage, where we see Teddy Long in his office and a door knocks, and a few seconds later Matt Hardy walks into the office to a big pop. Long asks Hardy what’s up, to which Hardy replies saying he wants a match tonight. Long says he can’t do that since he is not fit to compete until Sunday. Hardy says Long might be right that he is not fully fit, but he good enough to compete and he demands a match tonight. Long sighs before saying he will go find an opponent for Hardy to which Hardy thanks Long and walks out of the office. Long mutters under his breath to not come to him when he wants to sue someone as we go to a commercial break.

Commercial Break


Match 3
United States Championship
Kane v MVP


MVP came down to the ring showing a lot of anger having to defend the title tonight, when in just two days time he has one of the toughest matches of his life against Matt Hardy, and straight from the get go we saw a very physical side of MVP. MVP from the start took it straight to Kane and in the opening two minutes came close to beating Kane on several occasions. MVP made a big mistake however when he climbed to the top rope, and went for a diving elbow smash only to get caught in mid with a big boot by Kane. Kane then started to clean house on MVP going through his move set on the US Champion. It looked as thought we would have a new US Champion when Kane set MVP up for a Chokeslam, but MVP kicked Kane in the mid section and followed that off with a Face breaker Knee Smash. This allowed MVP back into the match, and he went to finish the match off with the Playas Boot but Kane moved out of the way just in time. Kane then tossed MVP to the outside and the two men went at it on the outside, with Kane ramming MVP head first into the Steel Ring Post. Kane rolled MVP into the ring and the referee checked up on MVP, as out of nowhere came MARCUS COR VON WHO POUNCED KANE WHO CRASHED INTO THE STEEL STEPS! Cor Von then rolled Kane into the ring and fled through the crowd, as MVP was able to recover and hit the Playmaker for the victory thanks to his fellow Playas Club member.

Winner: Still United States Champion MVP in 8:30


After the match, MVP immediately asks for a mic and is given one. MVP asks for his music to be cut and says another victory another dollar. MVP says that this comprehensive victory proved that he is the greatest United States Champion of all time. He says that this victory proves that this Sunday’s match with Matt Hardy is going to be a stroll in the park. He says that Hardy isn’t even in his league, and he proved that by carrying 225 pounds of Matt Hardy on his shoulders when they were Tag Team Champions. MVP says that Hardy might be confident that he is going to get revenge at Survivor Series, but if anybody is going to survive and walk out with the US Championship it will be the man who is half man, half amazing, the franchise Playa MVP. MVP then tosses his mic aside and leaves the ring as we go to a commercial break.

Commercial Break


Match 4
Tag Team Match
Drew McIntyre and Paul Burchill v Jamie Noble and Kid Kash


Fellow UKConnection member William Regal not being at ringside was a shock in itself, but Jamie Noble and Kid Kash being able to work well together without any problems was an even bigger one. We were brought back to the days when the two men teamed together in a tag team known as the Pitbulls, as they showed the physicality and unity they showed back then. Kash and Noble made a bright start to the match, but McIntyre and Burchill started to gain control when they worked over the injured leg of Kid Kash which was originally injured by Chavo Guerrero only to be damaged even further by Jamie Noble. Drew McIntyre locked on a Single Legged Boston Crab onto Kid Kash who did all he could to try and find a way to get out of the hold. Kash very slowly started crawling to the ropes, and despite McIntyre’s attempt to pull him back to the centre of the ring, Kash reached the ropes. Kash moments later fought back with an Enzuigiri on Burchill and went to make the tag when McIntyre knocked Noble off the apron. However Jamie Noble rushed into the ring and we saw an all out brawl, which allowed Kash to fight back himself as he started to clean house on Paul Burchill. Jamie Noble brawled with McIntyre on the outside as Kash executed a Brainbuster and then climbed to the top rope. He looked to go for a Frog Splash, when Jamie Noble turns on Kid Kash pushing him off the top rope down onto the mat. Jamie Noble hit a Fireman’s Carry Double Knee Gutbuster onto his teammate and his rival, before leaving the ring as Burchill picks up the scraps to take the victory.

Winners: Drew McIntyre and Paul Burchill in 7:26


After the match McIntyre and Burchill celebrate another victory, and surely they are pushing themselves into contention for a future Tag Team Title shot. Cruiserweight Champion Jamie Noble leaves the ring with a big smirk on his face as he looks at his Survivor Series opponent Kid Kash. Kid Kash gets up onto his knees and looks down at Jamie Noble and signals that at Survivor Series he will make the best of 7 series score 3-1 to Kash.

After the match we go backstage to see Kristal Marshall standing by Finlay. Kristal goes to ask Finlay about his thoughts on the Batista situation, which Finlay quickly interrupts and says he couldn’t give a damn about Dave Batista. Finlay says there are no rooms for pathetic cowards in the WWE, and says that the WWE is better off without Batista. Finlay says that at Survivor Series his team of four is going to have the advantage as Ric Flair’s team only has three men, and says that the best thing they could do is do a Batista because Survivor Series is going to be a whitewash. Finlay then talks about his upcoming match with Ric Flair, reminding Flair that he loves to fight and he is going to be in one tonight.


Commercial Break


We come back from commercial to see Matt Hardy in the ring awaiting his opponent. “Power of the Punch” hits and William Regal comes out revealing himself as Matt Hardy’s opponent. William Regal comes down to the ring as Matt Hardy has a serious look on his face, knowing this is going to be a tough match on his return to in ring action after his beating by the hands of MVP, Elijah Burke and Marcus Cor Von several weeks ago.

Match 5
Singles Match
Matt Hardy v William Regal


On his return to the ring after being tossed off the stage four weeks ago, we didn’t see a very convincing performance by Matt Hardy and it was in fact William Regal who dominated the majority of the match. William Regal used his intelligence and remembered the damage the Playas Club did to the knee of Matt Hardy before he was tossed off the stage, and he did a very good job of working over the knee of Matt Hardy. William Regal took the kneepad of Matt Hardy, making him more prone to injury as he worked over his unprotected knee. Matt Hardy finally got some offence in the match after he rolled Regal over when he attempted a Boston Crab, and despite only getting a two Matt Hardy started to go through his moveset on Regal. Hardy went for the Diving Leg Drop, but Regal moved out of the way just at the right time before Chop Blocking Matt Hardy and going back after the knee. William Regal looked like he had the victory in sight when he locked on the Regal Stretch onto Matt Hardy, who showed some resiliency somehow using his free arm to elbow his way out of it and break the hold. We then saw some back and forth wrestling to end the match with Hardy continuing to show resiliency after kicking out of a Regal Bomb. The end of the match saw Regal look into his tights and pull out some brass knuckles. William Regal then approached Hardy with them, but Hardy out of nowhere hit a Twist of Fate to take an extremely hard fought victory.

Winner: Matt Hardy in 8:02


Commercial Break


Match 6
Singles Match
Finlay v Ric Flair


We saw a very surprisingly short physical match with a lot of punches and chops being exchanged between the two men. After a back and forth opening minute Ric Flair looked to lock on the Figure 4 Leg Lock onto Finlay, only for the Hornswoggle to distract Ric Flair. Ric Flair was not in the mood for any of Hornswoggle’s antics, as he chased him around the ring and Hornswoggle led Finlay back into the ring and into a huge clothesline by Finlay. Finlay then began to dominate the match gaining numerous near falls with his closest coming after a superplex off the top rope. Finlay began to get frustrated and he went for his Shillelagh and went to hit Flair with it, only for the referee to snatch it off him, and as the referee handed it to the outside Ric Flair hit a Low Blow to Finlay. The match closed with some back and forth wrestling, which led to Ric Flair locking on the Figure 4 Leg Lock just 5 minutes into the match. It looked as though Finlay would tap out, when his fellow teammates at Survivor Series Elijah Burke and Marcus Cor Von rushed into the ring and ambushed Ric Flair forcing the referee to call for the bell.

Winner: Ric Flair via DQ in 5:47


Cor Von and Burke continue the beat down, as Rey Mysterio and Kane sprint down to the ring to make the save. They start off by fighting off Burke and Cor Von, but Chavo Guerrero rushes to the ring and Finlay recovers and the numbers game comes into play. Marcus Cor Von drops Mysterio with the Alpha Bomb, as Finlay grabs his Shillelagh and smashes it over the skull of Kane. Chavo Guerrero comes off the top rope with the Frog Splash onto the chest of Kane, as Elijah Burke locks on a Figure 4 Leg Lock onto Ric Flair. Cor Von, Chavo and Finlay stomp away at Flair who yells in agony through the figure 4 leg lock….

“I WALK ALONE”


The crowd rush onto their feet and give a huge reaction as BATISTA APPEARS ON THE STAGE! Batista casually takes off his shades and looks around the arena, before looking at the ring and shouts “I’M BACK”. Batista then charges down to the ring, as Chavo, Finlay, Burke and Cor Von wait for him before they stomp away at Batista as he gets into the ring. Batista fights his way to his feet though and he begins to fight off all four men, hitting everybody who gets in his way with hard right hands. Elijah Burke rushes up at Batista, who catches him with a big Spinebuster. Cor Von attempts the Pounce, but Batista sidesteps out of the way and bounces off the ropes coming back with a Spear. Batista then catches a charging Chavo Guerrero with a Thunderous Spinebuster. Batista lifts Chavo up above his head and tosses him to the outside onto Marcus Cor Von on the outside, as Finlay stalks him from behind with his Shillelagh. Batista turns around and ducks an attempted Shillelagh shot and hits another Spinebuster. Batista then finishes off Finlay with the Batista Bomb. Batista then turns around to see Ric Flair reaching his feet. Flair looks at Batista in shock and looks at the damage he has caused. The two men lock eyes before embracing in the centre of the ring. Rey Mysterio gives Batista the same welcome back, but Kane however does not look pleased. Kane immediately gets in Batista’s face and grabs him by the throat! Kane looks to Chokeslam Batista when Batista’s friends Ric Flair and Rey Mysterio come to his aid telling Kane not to do so. Kane reluctantly does so and immediately flips backwards out of the ring and heads down the ramp obviously still angry with Batista. Batista, Flair and Rey watch on as it seems obvious that we are back to a fair four v four tag team match at Survivor Series.

Commercial Break


We then come back to ringside where we see that the ring is nearly ready for Edge’s funeral segment, but not quite ready as the production staff are slow and useless. So instead Michael Cole and JBL run down the Survivor Series card to waste time. Make sure to buy the PPV people OR ELSE!

“Metalingus” hits and we see the World Heavyweight Champion Edge come out dressed as though he is going to a real funeral. Edge walks by a hearse, which has been placed at ringside, before entering the ring and grabbing a mic. Edge says that tonight is a night of celebration, a night to celebrate the end of The Undertaker’s career. Edge reminds people of The Undertaker’s accomplishments during his career, before saying that this Sunday is going to be the greatest accomplishment of his career when he steps into the ring with the Rated R Superstar. But also this Sunday is going to be the worst night in his life, when he steps into the ring with the Rated R Superstar. Edge says that The Undertaker has beat them all, but he has never been in the ring with Edge. Edge says he is going to prove why The Undertaker’s 18 year career is coming to an end. Edge says The Undertaker has had his moments, but that he is currently in the Rated R Era. Edge says he is going to show the world that The Undertaker doesn’t have what it takes anymore. Edge runs down The Undertaker a little more before telling everyone in the arena to keep quiet, and tells the Timekeeper to ring the bell in mourning of The Undertaker’s career. The bell rings nine times, as the crowd gives Edge some huge heat as Edge mockingly does Undertaker’s signature pose.

Before the bell can ring for the tenth time however the arena lights go off and we hear a gong. Moments later we see a lightning bolt strike the casket which is in the ring and it sets on fire. We can clearly see Edge standing behind the Casket looking on in horror, as from behind him out of the darkness comes The Undertaker. The crowd gives a huge pop as the lights in the arena turn on, and Edge turns around right into a hard right hand from The Undertaker. The Undertaker then pounds away at Edge into the corner before grabbing him by the throat. Taker looks for a Tombstone, but Edge spins out of it and in desperate fashion low blows his challenger at No Mercy. Edge then flees the ring and exits down the ramp taking no risk, not wanting to get hurt just two days before his big match. The show comes to a close as The Undertaker delivers the cut throat signal to Edge who looks back on in the ring at horror at The Undertaker.

Nige’s Raw Feedback

Kennedy & Jeff looks like being a good match and I’m sure this contract signing will be quite entertaining to say the least

That was a nice promo to start the show with Orton just being so intense, and man I wish I could have seen him have a go at Umaga like that, really pushing his luck. I would have loved to have seen them go at it, but with Vince there, it was never going to happen. I like that he kind of agreed with Umaga to keep him happy since he’s a big tool for The Corporation, but putting him in a handicap match? I think you have something up your sleeve there mate! Cena coming out took me by surprise a bit considering Jericho’s the one who needs the attention, but I guess he has the contract signing later on. I wasn’t too sure I enjoyed Cena until he got in to the aggressive mode and went after them. The best decision was made to get The Corporation out of there like you did

Kennedy back in the ring straight after leaving it before the break? Poor guy going back and forth! In all honesty that was a real good match with Jeff, and I was happy that Kennedy looked to have the match won, until RVD came down. I thought we were going to see Kennedy escape again when we saw a chair brought in to the ring like before, but the Van Daminator is a great move and it sure gives RVD some much need credibility back. The low blow didn’t do Jeff too much damage either as he was in shape to win the match, taking care of all three guys here well bud

That was a real solid promo from Shelton. He had to do all the talking really, and it worked, especially the line about London & Kendrick having not gone through puberty yet. That added a little humour to a very serious promo that was delivered perfectly. Their win over The Highlanders was always in the bag, but they did it in style, loving the super kick & Haas of Pain combination. The other teams coming down and brawling was cool, and I always like the spot when the champs escape up the ramp while the challengers go at it. Nice!

Man I just loved Carlito in this segment, he was brilliant. It reminded me of when he was just on fire as a heel, acting up cocky and getting caught out with a bluff, but not caring and still looking cool at the end of it. Calling Melina a slut too after he said Punk did it was just brilliant. That was great man!

You really are building up the tension between Cena & Jericho, seeming to indicate that Jericho will take the title from Orton at the Survivor Series. The mid carder joke is being aimed at Cena a lot tonight, personal opinion is it? Cena mentioning the scenarios from the recent past to speculate an Orton win was a nice way to start it all, and I think we are going to see fireworks between these two soon

The tag team match was pretty sweet with lots of close calls, teasing the end of the match and the win for Punk & Mickie. The frequent break up of falls from Morrison & Melina worked real well to show them as a strong double act, but after what happened before, I didn’t like Carlito getting involved as he had shined already tonight. With the team build up, I forgot about the Punk/Carlito history and I think that had some effect on my reaction to it

Hardcore cutting to the chase as always sure hyped up the fact that he wants to kick Cody’s ass tonight, but we all know Cody will get himself out of it with a win thanks to the stipulation or by some other method. It’s just intriguing to find out which one it will be, but this promo hypes it up even more

Yes, I knew it had to be, Ted DiBiase Jr! It was a good match up but I didn’t expect the tag partnership to come so quickly, but it works for me as I love Team Priceless despite the stupid name, Simply Priceless is far better. The shot to the back giving Cody the win sure made it more of an impact debut too, and DiBiase Sr being there too is just awesome, although I will have to re-evaluate my plans now. If I could pick on anything here, I would have liked Cody to have got a bit more offence in

I loved the Vince pep talk with Umaga, and you said it yourself, he is a big asset to The Corporation. It’s great to see Vince getting so intense, and it was totally believable with the his hatred for Cena & Triple H. It’s also good to see Orton being an equal really in leading the group instead of Vince bossing him about. Mentioning him and Coach going to the ring later also adds some intrigue in to what will happen. Have you been reading my mind and plans? Cutting the promo as Orton & Vince discuss a plan, it’s great to make us wonder what will happen in the contract signing

The handicap match worked pretty well, and the teasing of Cena turning heel is being built up so well by it being gradual. The clothesline is a great way to have some kind of exchange at some point, I just hope it blows up at Survivor Series. Umaga put on a decent effort when most people would have had him run over by Cena & Triple H, which is something I know won’t happen here. The problems over the finish of the match added some more tension to what is becoming a very interesting situation indeed with Cena & Triple H, as well as the tension with Cena & Jericho

Wow, I was shocked at the press conference straight away with Coach being rail roaded by Jericho. I wasn’t sure about that at first, but when you delivered the warning to Vince, I knew it was the right thing to do. Aside from a minor typo with Orton apparently trying to antagonise Orton, it was really greatly written. The stipulations are both great, especially the interference one as that gives Jericho a lot more hope, and obviously makes us see him winning a bit more likely now. With Austin’s warning in place, I was surprised Orton got that pissed, but it was the best way to end the show going in to Sunday with the faces standing tall. I just hope that signifies the end for Chris Jericho’s hopes, but seeing his upturn in real life lately, I would be happier than I would have been a few weeks back if he wins. With that said, I want Orton to retain by a long way

Great show mate, it was one of your best TV’s I’ve read. I must say you did some great work with the Carlito & WGTT promos too!


Nige’s Smackdown Feedback

Finlay & Flair in the main event is very surprising considering Edge/Taker will be one of the main events at the Survivor Series just two days later. MVP defending his US title is too considering he has to defend against Matt as well

Wow, we’re kicking off with a bang here with that Noble/Kash brawl and Edge’s announcement. It’s strange to see that happen but it sure does set the tone for what could be a great show before the Survivor Series. I’m not too sure about the Taker funeral having seen Edge do that before their match IRL at Wrestlemania. I get the feeling this will go a different way though

I was going to say I thought we saw Rey & Burke open the show last week, and with that said, it was clear that we were going to see a reverse in fortune. It was a real exciting match with some great spots to keep you on the edge of your seat, like the Burke counter to the powerbomb, and the Tornado DDT by Rey. The winner was always obvious, but a great match

The Noble/Kash/Teddy segment worked out well, and I laughed at Noble calling Kash a redneck, very funny. Tagging together won’t exactly stop them going at each other I’m sure with their match on Sunday and the way Noble has been so opportunistic in recent weeks. Flair’s talk with Kane & Rey was also good, but I’d be amazed if Batista didn’t come back Sunday or even tonight. With Flair doubting him, it makes us believe the door is closed, which will fool some people. The 18 world titles line was funny, considering Flair’s won a hefty percentage of them, 88%

Yeah, go Chavo! He’s receiving a slow build up after feuding with Flair and I think he needs someone to get in a program with quite quickly, but I guess we’ll see that very soon. Like you said, this wasn’t the greatest match to see, but the low blow after the shove in to the referee sure does get Chavo’s character across well. After all the great work you did with him, he needs something solid to work with instead of meaningless wins before that work you did is forgotten

Matt Hardy will not die! That spirit of his came through well here as it is the very same response you would expect from him in real life, although I thought he’d play a part in the United States Championship match. Teddy giving him a bit of lip was a bolt out of the blue, well Matt was gone but it surprised me a bit

With MVP defending the title against Matt this Sunday, we were never going to see a title change in a million years. I was wondering how MVP would retain the title, but with them not receiving the same amount of time as they have recently, The VIP Club escaped my mind for the time being. It’s good to see using Cor Von well here and to his strengths here for it to work in MVP’s favour too. The promo after was needed to big MVP up, and I don’t know what to expect to be honest when he and Matt battle it out

I was just waiting for Kash & Noble to fall apart here, and it didn’t come as a surprise that it was Noble who turned on his partner at a critical time. Being the heel, it was the right thing to do and like you said after the match, McIntyre & Burchill draw closer to a title shot, but it wasn’t the manner of the win in which you would give a title shot to. Like I mentioned last time, match 4 this Sunday is the all important one

Finlay’s interview was real good for someone who isn’t a great talker. Calling Batista a coward and sending a cold warning to the face team and then Flair as an individual worked and helps Finlay get over a lot more

This is what I love best about Matt, his fighting spirit, and you certainly showed that and more to have him pick up a real good win here and in a very good match too. I wasn’t surprised to see Regal pull out the brass knucks, but Matt countering in to the Twist of Fate straight away was great and it does a great job of making the point that Matt will not go down without a fight before the big match this Sunday. I was waiting for MVP & co, but I’m happy that Matt got the chance to shine in the limelight

The Flair/Finlay match just served as a brief distraction before the big brawl. It was all set up well for Batista’s return with the faces being in deep trouble and need of help, so right on cue, here comes Batista. You built that up well tonight, but I think we all expected it. The tension between him & Kane is great to see, and much like the Cena/HHH tension on Raw, we could see some fireworks at the Survivor Series for sure

The funeral was a bit of a let down as I expected to see some kind of big spot. Maybe that’s my own fault for watching the Hell in a Cell match from Summerslam this morning. Edge was in great character as usual, but I thought Taker would come out of the blazing coffin like he did at the Survivor Series three years ago. The low blow was a good way to get Edge to escape, but just days before the PPV, you would expect a brawl of sorts, so it came as a slight disappointment, but for Edge, it was the right thing to do

Another terrific show as ever, and I’ll have a crack at these predictions too now

Default Re: WWE: Turning The Corner

Ok will try to make this short and sweet, but looking at the number of people who have reviewed my shows in this thread it won’t matter too much anyways

Anyway my dwindling interest in wrestling is pretty much all but gone at the moment. I haven’t watched a full episode of Raw or Smackdown for a good 8 or 9 months, and the last WWE orientated thing I watched was Wrestlemania. Despite that I have tried to continue on with this thread as I wanted to reach Wrestlemania at least and try to make this thread a success, but recently I have found it tiring just to write recaps let alone a full Survivor Series. So i have gave up on Survivor Series and have finally decided that there is no point in doing something I am no longer fully interested in.

So I would like to thank to those who reviewed my shows in my 2002 thread some three years and a half years ago, my thread with Forever Delayed and finally this one.

Man that sucks, but i understand why you feel the need to give it up. It's a shame because you have so much talent for this, but it's understandable

Good luck my man!

Patman. Kane01 is quitting this BTB and you post predictions . Obviously didn't notice

Anyways, Kane01 really sad to see you leave this BTB but i think you have proven to the people who did review your show that you are one of the top people in BTB today. So all i can do is wish you the best of luck and hope you come back to BTB one day.
