Default Re: Legend Presents: World Wrestling Entertainment

I appreciate the reviews, everyone, and I appreciate the aptience you've shown with my slow ass. I'll be trying to catch up everyone as soon as I can, starting with Pat probably, since he did quite a lot of posting when I was away. Anyway, here it is, the last show before WrestleMania; heed the warning at the foot of it, and enjoy.


Friday Night SmackDown; March 31st, 2006; Kansas City, Missouri



WrestleMania Part Two

As the camera cuts into the arena, we are greeted by the usual epic sight of thousands upon thousands of screaming fans on their feet, waving their banners, and quite simply going wild for the WWE’s final show before ‘The Big One’. After the usual pyrotechnic display, the camera pans around the arena once more, really giving a great ‘feel’ of the atmosphere present tonight in the Kemper Arena.

We are about to head over to the commentators, when…


***ALSO SPRACH ZARATHUSTRA***


Kansas City BLOWS THE ROOF with the kind of pop that won’t be matched all night long, as out onto the stage steps the biggest wheelin’, dealin’, kiss stealin’, jet flyin’ son of a gun to ever grace a wrestling ring ‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair. Clad in a smart, tan Armani suit with a white shirt and no tie, Flair looks his usual dapper self, as he smiles warmly up to his thousands of fans, even blowing a couple of kisses, before beginning the long walk down the ramp on what could very well be his final televised show.


Michael Cole: What a moment this could prove to be. For what could prove to be the last time EVER, the greatest wrestler to ever lace up a pair of boots is making his way down to a WWE show ring. Just forty-eight hours away from his career threatening match with JBL, and just two hours away from his match up here tonight, a potentially ‘Last Ever’ television match for him against Mr. Money in the Bank Edge; you have to admit, Naitch has never looked better.

Tazz: Absolutely, Cole. I mean I’m a SmackDown man through and through, but I gotta’ admit I’m pulling for The Nature Boy this Sunday. Can’t let his career end like that, baby.

Smiling from ear to ear, Flair slaps hands with some of the fans at ringside, before strutting up the steps and entering the ring. Looking as though it were his first rather than his potentially last show, Naitch stands in the middle of the ring and does a slow twirl for all of the fans, receiving another marvellous pop. After adjusting his collar casually, he asks for a mic from ringside and his quickly handed one by Tony Chimel. Nodding his thanks to the announcer, Flair returns to the centre of the ring and raises it, looking around fondly, waiting for the cheers to die down.

Ric Flair: Kansas City … Missouri … WOOOOOOOOOO!!!

The crowd WOOOS and cheers along wildly, as Naitch chuckles to himself.

Ric Flair: Folks … folks … let me explain something to you right now! I’m not gonna’ say what I said on Monday Night Raw two weeks ago, ‘cause that was then, and this is NOW! This is a different Nature Boy, this isn’t the Ric Flair who’s gonna’ start talking about retirement or that it’s time to call it a day, that I’m done. The Nature Boy will never be done! The Nature Boy will never call it a day! I will NEVER retire!

Raucous ovation for that statement, as Flair gets riled up.

Ric Flair: Because as far as I’m concerned, that World Heavyweight Championship that Big Dave wears around his waist, that WWE title that Kurt Angle has on his shoulder, they can still come home to THE NATURE BOY! And if I still believe that, then I’m not done. If you still believe you can be the best, then you’re … not … DONE! Period!

Great ovation for Naitch, as he smacks his chops in delight.

Ric Flair: Like I tell the kids I see walking through the halls backstage talking themselves up, if you don’t like it, if you don’t understand it, I promise you that this ole’ dog is more than willing to show you just what I mean! I’m not a quitter like others, not too scared to try and get back to the top, I’m not afraid of anything, I never have been and I NEVER WILL, if you mess with The Nature Boy, (Begins tearing his jacket off) then it doesn’t matter if it’s 1985 or 2006, you get your ass kicked … because, folks, WOOOOOOOOOO, the MAN … is still in the building!!! WOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Flair triumphantly hurls his jacket down to the canvas to more booming cheers.

Ric Flair: IT -- DOES -- NOT -- MATTER -- WHO -- IT -- IS!! This Sunday’s gonna’ be no different then all the other hundreds and thousands that I’ve faced before!! You walk that aisle to go head to head with the one and only STYLIN’, the first ever PROFILIN’, the best ever KISS STEALIN’, classy JET FLYIN’, the unforgettable WHEELIN’, the original DEALIN’ , insatiable SON OF A GUN … your ass is getting slapped in the Figure Four and you are TAPPIN’ … OUT!!

Strutting like a mad man, Naitch mops his brow, loving every second of this.

Ric Flair: At WrestleMania Twenty-Two, number SIX for the Naitch, Mister John Bradshaw Layfield will ride down that aisle in his limo fit for a Horsemen … and he’s gonna’ leave lyin’ flat on his back courteousy of Ric Flair … just like Harley Race before him, just like Terry Funk, just like Ricky Steamboat, Sting, Savage, Perfect, Hogan, Vader, ‘Taker, Hunter, THE ABSOLUTE BEST IN THE BUSINESS -- WOOOO -- he’ll be leaving Chi Town, Chicago, Illinois as the LOSER!! If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, to be the man, you have to beat the man and JBL, son, YOU -- CAN’T -- BEAT -- ME!! WOOOOOO!!

More WOOOS fill the arena, as Slick Ric continues to delight the crowd.

Ric Flair: But … but I have to hand it to you, Bradshaw. You got to me, ya’ got under the skin of ole’ Naitch, ya’ beat me, assaulted me, BLOODIED ME, back in January at the Royal Rumble, you took away ONE MONTH outta’ my career!! ONE MONTH!! I’ve had a career spanning THIRTY -- FIVE -- YEARS, and in that time I’ve been beaten, I’ve been assaulted, BLOODIED, I’ve been put on the sidelined to WATCH as others did what I love, and ya’ know, you know what happened to the men who put me there? Do ya’??!! Ask Terry Funk!! Ask Bob Orton!! Ask Jack Slater, Harley Race, ‘Taker, Vince McMahon, Vader, Triple H, ASK ‘EM ALL WHAT HAPPENED TO ‘EM!! The same thing that’s comin’ your way this Sunday, the same thing that’s comin’ your way ten fold … PAYBACK!!

Tearing at his collar, Flair is red in the face and fuming.

Ric Flair: I may have put my career on the line, Bradshaw, but let me tell ya’ somethin’, getting my hands on you is gonna’ be worth every bead of sweat, every DROP OF BLOOD IN MY BODY just to see you get what’s comin’ to ya’, just to see you like I was four months ago, lyin’ in a pool OF MY OWN BLOOD!! I am gonna’ make you beg for mercy, I am gonna’ make you SCREEEEAM like you never have before, JBL, and I am gonna’ make you TAP OUT at the hands of, WOOOOOOOO, THE NATURE BOY!! WOOOOOOO!! WOOOOOOOOO!!!!!





***LONGHORN***

Some truly EPIC HEAT fills the arena as soon as the stock market bells toll over the PA, signalling the arrival of a man who never gets a mixed reaction, never gets cheers, just nothing but pure heat. Almost as though he was expecting it, Flair turns slowly to face the stage, as all the crowd crane their necks, searching for the luxurious white limo … but instead the one and only John Bradshaw Layfield simply steps out onto the SmackDown! stage, nothing fancy tonight, nothing but the usual flawless grey suit and crisp white cowboy hat. It is hard to read JBL’s expression, as he focuses on the ring and The Nature Boy standing in it, serious as a heartbeat, before heading right for it.


Tazz: HERE -- COMES -- THE -- MONEY!!!

Michael Cole: Oh my, business is well and truly about to pick up! The man who faces Ric Flair in just forty-eight hours has just interrupted The Nature Boy and he is heading for the ring.

As Flair picks up his jacket and throws it back on in the ring, Bradshaw makes his way up the steps slowly, never once taking his eyes off his hated rival. Looking somewhat naked without his usual entourage, the longest reigning WWE Champion in SmackDown! history enters the ring and steps right by Naitch, who watches closely, before being handed his own mic from ringside too. With the crowd reaching a furious uproar, Ric Flair and John Bradshaw Layfield stand across from one another, the two big rivals, a mere two days away from their epic clash. As Naitch watches, JBL raises his mic and motions with his arm all around him.

John Bradshaw Layfield: Take a look, Ric, take a good look at what you see standing before you right now. No Chief of Staff, no Secretaries of Defence, NOTHING! (Pointing into the crowd) This is what all of you people wanted isn’t it? With only forty-eight hours separating ME from absolute, immortal greatness, and nothing but a matter of days between Ric Flair and the humiliation of retirement, here we both are, The Nature Boy and (Booming voice) THE WRESTLING GAAAAAWD!!! … (Much more controlled) Face … to … face.

A mixed reaction for the hype, as Flair watches closely.

John Bradshaw Layfield: But … but, Ric (Tucks the mic under his arm and applauds dryly) I gotta’ hand it to you, that little speech you just gave almost sounded as though you meant every single word. After thirty-five years in this business you really have become the master … of spin.

Naitch has an ‘Oh really?’ look on his face.

John Bradshaw Layfield: Did you have one of your lapses again, Naitch? Did ya’ think you steppin’ into the ring with nothing but a NOBODY, a ROOKIE, at WrestleMania? That’s how it works doesn’t it? I’ve seen the tapes, Flair; I was there in person during the N Dubya’ A days. Good ole’ Ric Flair, The Nature Boy, the old man ya’ll have decided to love in his old age … has achieved EVERYTHING in this business with MIND GAMES … and with SPIN!!! Ric Flair is the ULTIMATE wrestling politician.

The crowd boos, whilst Flair remains relatively calm.

John Bradshaw Layfield: You don’t think I know what ya’ tryin’ to do, Ric? Did you really think I was that STUPID? (Looks into the crowd) Ladies and gentlemen, without talent, in this business, all you have left … are mind games. You psych your opponent out enough before a match … you get in his head … you make him think he doesn’t stand a chance IN HELL of winnin’ that match … and believe me, you will win that match. But (Staring at Flair) it don’t always work, ain’t that right, Ric?

Shaking his head slowly, Naitch just stares a hole through JBL, whilst Bradshaw grows more animated.

John Bradshaw Layfield: Ask the question, have YOU, me, I, John Bradshaw Layfield ever stooped to such levels to achieve any of the monumental success over the course of my career, and the answer is clearly, ALWAYS … no. (Hell of a toothy grin) I have never and I do not ever need to sink so low because I possess the one thing that separates the GREAT … from the FAKE in this, AND ALL, industry … TALENT.

JBL says the last word quite emphatically towards Slick Ric, getting some more heat.

John Bradshaw Layfield: I have talent in abundance … but some people are just less fortunate then me. (Eyeballing Flair) Men like you … Ric, isn’t that right? Take a good, long, hard look at your career and tell me that I’m lyin’. You didn’t beat Harley Race inside that Steel Cage ‘cause you were better than the men, ‘cause you were tougher, faster, or stronger. No, you beat him because you GOT - INSIDE - HIS - HEAD!!! You made him think he was gonna’ lose before he even stepped in that ring, Ric, and it worked. That’s what you did with Wyndham, that’s what you did with Rhodes, that’s what you did with Funk, Sting, Steamboat, ALL OF ‘EM!!! And it worked like on a charm on them because of one thing … THEY WERE NOT JOHN BRADSHAW LAYFIELD!!!

The men are getting close now, as Layfield grows in anger and confidence.

John Bradshaw Layfield: You thought you could come out here tonight and big yourself up, run my name into the ground, and I would just sit back and let it happen … sit back and let you get inside my head … let you beat me forty-eight hours before our match even starts? That’s what you though, didn’t ya’, Ric? That’s the only way you can beat me and that’s the GOD’S HONEST TRUTH AND YOU KNOW IT!!!

JBL is almost spewing his venom in Flair’s face now.

John Bradshaw Layfield: It’s pathetic, Flair. You’re pathetic. You thought you could get away with this garbage one more time to save your sorry career didn’t ya’? But that’s not gonna’ happen, not this time, Ric, ‘cause this time you’re facing THE AB - SOLUTE BEST … this business has to offer. When it comes to your mind game, Nature Boy (Smiles arrogantly) well, you might as well call me Superman … ‘cause I can see right through ya’ … you washed up son of a bitc--

Ric Flair: SHUT UP!!!!

Naitch, uh, flares up angrily, ‘causing the crowd to roar and JBL to back off slightly.

Ric Flair: I’ve heard … just about ENOUGH of what you’ve got to say, Bradshaw!!! “WASHED UP”??!! “PATHETIC”??!! MIND GAMES??!! ARE YOU KIDDIN’ ME???!!! There’s only one man here spinnin’ anything and talkin’ out of his … ASS … AND IT’S YOU!!!

The crowd is loving it, whilst Layfield looks positively repulsed.

Ric Flair: Don’t you DARE, don’t you DARE mention yourself in the same sentence as The King, or The Dragon, or The Funkster, or The American Dream, or The Icon, DON’T YOU DARE!!! ‘Cause every single of those guys are LEGENDS … and you, JBL, are nothing but a LOUD-MOUTH … SUIT-WEARIN’ … COWBOY HAT-SPORTIN’ … PUNK!!!!

John Bradshaw Layfield: PUNK???!!! (Gets slightly drowned out by cheers) Let m-- Let me tell you something, Flair. I didn’t just mention myself in the same list as those supposed ‘Legends’ that ya’ just reeled off … I placed myself in an ENTIRELY - DIFFERENT - LEAGUE!!!

Thunderous boos, as Flair stretches out his collar, as he is getting hot under it.

John Bradshaw Layfield: This seems like a pretty fitting time for some home truths, and it’s as good a time as any, so why don’t I tell ya’, Ric, why I beat you SENSELESS back at the Royal Rumble and took away one month of your precious career??!! Yeah, I did it ‘cause you pissed me off … ‘cause you got in my face … ‘cause you eliminated me from the match … but I did it because I am SICK TO DEATH of being ignored … I am at my WITS END from being overlooked … being denied my rightful spot on that list of the all time greats … and why is that, huh? Do you know why that is, Flair? IS BECAUSE PEOPLE LIKE YOU DON’T KNOW WHEN THEY SHOULD JUST LIE DOWN AND DIE!!!!

Some absolutely astonishing heat. White hot. Even Flair looks a little taken aback.

Ric Flair: THAT’S IT???!!! THAT’S IT???!!! You tried … to SNAP MY NECK … and END MY CAREER … just because you’re too much of a COWARD to earn my spot??!! Because you’re jealous of me??!! Because deep down you know that you’ll never be as good, as charismatic, as famous, as successful, as remembered, or even be … THE NAITCHA’ BOY RIC, WOOOOOOOOOO, FLAIR???!!!

John Bradshaw Layfield: SHUT UP!!! (Glaring at the “Wooing” crowd) That is not what I said and you damn well know it!! I want what’s owed to me. I want what’s owed to anyone who is the longest reigning WWE Champion this Millennium. I want what’s owed to the most decorated champion STILL ACTIVE in professional wrestling … I want … MY … deserved … RESPECT!!!

Flair peers at the Media Maven curiously.

Ric Flair: Son … you beat The Nature Boy this Sunday … you end Ric Flair’s thirty-five year career on the grandest stage of ‘em all at WrestleMania Twenty-Two … and I promise you … it won’t be respect you’ll see in everyone’s faces when they look at you … it’ll be pity.

John Bradshaw Layfield: (Ignoring the jibe) The only one of us who’ll be in need of pity after this Sunday, Ric … is the only one of us who’s gonna’ be unemployed … say at home watchin’ the tube … nursin’ that nice lookin’ beer-gut … and rememberin’ those good ole’ glory days.

After a brief, intense locking of eyes, Flair gives a wry smirk.

Ric Flair: Well, as far as I’m concerned, John … the time for talkin’ between us … is over. If tonight is gonna’ be The Nature Boy’s last appearance on TV … then I’m goin’ out with a bang … and I will beat Edge later tonight. But as for us … let’s see how old school you really are.

FLAIR EXTENDS HIS HAND~!!! The crowd actually pours some major heat on the move by The Nature Boy, his show of extreme sportsmanship, but he completely ignores them, and instead keeps his eyes firmly locked on those of JBL. Bradshaw looks startled by the gesture and at first steps away, not wanting any part of it, but eventually, after rubbing his jaw for a moment, a smug smile forms on his face, and he steps back in to gingerly accept the handshake, receiving a very mixed reaction. Flair’s eyes are steely, as he brings his mic up with his other hand.

Ric Flair: For someone who claims to have watched me my whole career … that sure was a stupid mistake to make.

Confused, JBL, still slowly shaking hands, raises an eyebrow - THUMB TO THE EYE FROM FLAIR OUT OF NOWHERE!!! A tremendous roar goes up from the crowd, filled with laughter too, as Bradshaw staggers around clutching his face, blinded, and Flair grins like a mad man.

Grabbing his sightless enemy by the shoulder, Naitch spins him around against the ropes and rips at the buttons of his shirt, tearing it open to reveal JBL’s bare chest underneath. Before The Wrestling God can even react, Flair begins lightning him up with CHOP after CHOP, sending the hideous sound of smacking flesh echoing throughout the arena to a plethora of “WOOOS” with each blow.

Layfield gasps and groans against the ropes, and Naitch takes him by the arm, hurling him across the ring into the opposite set of ropes with an Irish Whip - but JBL grabs hold of the top rope desperately and drops down, rolling out of the ring as quickly as possible.

Thunderous boos ring out around the arena, as Bradshaw staggers backwards up the ramp, still clutching at his exposed chest, whilst glaring fiercely and pointing threateningly back at The Nature Boy, who stands in the ring looking just as intense, but also giving the crowd a little ‘Strut’ and “WOOOOOO” for old time’s sake, as we fade out with these two hated rivals.

VIDEO FEATURE ON THE 2006 HALL OF FAME … BRET 'THE HITMAN' HART.

Back to ringside.

Michael Cole: Welcome back everyone to Friday Night SmackDown, we’re coming to you tonight from Kansas City, the FINAL stop before WrestleMania Twenty-Two in just forty-eight hours time!! After that explosive start to the show from Ric Flair and JBL, things are only going to get better, as you heard, in what could be his last EVER television match, Naitch has chosen to face the man who assaulted his student last week; tonight, it’s Flair-Edge in the Main Event, but who knows what part JBL … or indeed the unseen World Champion Batista will play??

Tazz: You really ain’t kiddin’, Cole; that’s gonna’ be huge. Let’s not forget, we got TWO sit-down interviews that we recorded earlier with the competitors in the United States and Cruiserweight Championship matches … and you wanna’ talk explosive, eh, Cole??

Michael Cole: That’s right, partner. We will also hear from ‘The Real Deal’ Bobby Lashley and Paul Heyman ahead of Lashley’s huge match this Sunday with The Phenom, with The Undertaker!! And in closing tonight, ‘The Legend Killer’ Randy Orton himself will be here to not only address Shane McMahon, not only address the McMahon Family, but he has promised to address the entire WWE community and wrestling world about the ramifications of what could happen this Sunday.

Tazz: Huge, baby. I got goosebumps. But you wanna’ talk action, we got three, THREE Money in the Bank preview matches tonight, and we’re kickin’ those bad boys off right now!!

Match #1: Money in the Bank Preview Match:
Mr. Kennedy vs. Chavo Guerrero
Following the huge six man tag match on Raw, things break down with the first of our three inter-brand singles matches tonight, featuring old enemies Mr. Kennedy and Monday Night’s Chavo Guerrero. The commentators allude to the battle both men took part in back at No Way Out with Booker T and Rey Mysterio as their respective partners, giving this match a much more personal edge. It’s not the greatest match of the night, as it’s not given much time, but the two men up the pace to compensate. Kennedy plays the heel to perfection, running around the ring and stalling a treat.

Towards the end, KK takes a big risk and flies off the top rope with the KENTON BOMB - BUT CHAVO MOVES!!! Though the cocky loudmouth is a little heavier than he is used to, Chavito manages to get Kennedy over for two of the THREE AMIGOS, but when he goes for the third, KK manages to drop down, landing behind Guerrero. As soon as Chavo spins around, Kennedy grabs him, LOOKING FOR THE MIC CHECK, only for Chavito to shove the youngster away so that he collides with the turnbuckle!!

When KK staggers back in a daze, Guerrero boots him in the gut and lifts him up, HITTING THE THIRD AMIGO!! The crowd roars, as Chavo points to the sky, and climbs up top - HE GOES FOR THE FROG SPLASH - KENNEDY ROLLS OUT OF THE WAY!!! Clutching his gut, Chavito staggers back up to his feet, and KK scoops him up onto his shoulders, looking for the GREEN BAY ROLL - but Chavo swings down, catching Kennedy with a Sunset Flip - but KK sits down half way through, hooking both legs!! 1 … 2 …3!!!
Winner: Mr. Kennedy via pin fall at 7:55.
Chavo kicks out but just a split second too late, and Kennedy rolls out of the ring quicker than a hiccup, smirking broadly. The referee follows KK and raises his hand at the foot of the ramp, whilst Guerrero slaps the mat in frustration, having lost some of his momentum before Sunday.


Michael Cole: Huge win for Mister Kennedy heading into his first ever WrestleMania this Sunday. Pretty strange for such a rookie like Kennedy to catch a wily veteran like Chavo Guerrero out like that.


Tazz: Well I, uh, I hate to say I told you so, Cole, but, well, I told you so. Kennedy is talented as hell. He hasn’t lost a single match yet, Cole, you keep forgetting. This kid’s going places.

Michael Cole: He may be, Tazz, he may be, but let’s not forget the other guys in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match this Sunday, who are all in action tonight: Gregory Helms faces Finlay and Matt Hardy faces Carlito. Just two more huge matches we’ve got lined up for you tonight. But coming up right now, it’s the first of our very special interviews conducted by myself and Tazz. Interviews highlighting two matches and four men who feel they have perhaps been overlooked in the WrestleMania rush. Disagree if you want, but the man who deman-- who requested this first interview segment was none other than the Cruiserweight Champion of the World, Kid Kash, and here’s what happened when my partner sat down with him and his opponent this Sunday, Jamie Noble.

A pre-taped video segment begins to play…

***


We cut to the usual nondescript backstage area, with Tazz sitting on a black chair, facing the camera, with Jamie Noble and Kid Kash flanking him on either side, both clad in smart jeans and shirts, but KK sporting shades and holding his title belt proudly.

Tazz: I don’t think we got any problem getting it through to people anymore that this Sunday we are gonna’ see one of the most personal and probably THE most intense Cruiserweight Championship matches in history featuring the Champion of the last five months Kid Kash, and the challenger Jamie Noble.
Kid, as the champion, I’ll begin with you, man. I’ve known you since the ECW days; you’ve held the Cruiserweight Championship for almost five months now in your first ever reign at the top. So basically what I wanna’ ask is how does it feel to have been successful for so long all heading into what will be your first ever WrestleMania?

Kid Kash: Tazz, I ain’t gonna’ lie to ya’. (Huge shit eating grin) These past five months have been unbelievable. The best of my life. Ya’ see, it ain’t a huge shock to me bein’ Champion; hell, I’ve done it before, and imma’ sure as hell do it again …but this is the WWE, this place is somethin’ else … bein’ a champion in this place is serious business … I’ve loved every minute of it, man … and I don’t plan on givin’ it up anytime soon. WrestleMania or not. It’s just another show to Kid Kash. Another notch on the belt … ain’t that right, Jamie?

Kash smiles like a mad man, lowering his shades to arrogantly eyeball his rival, but Noble merely stares straight ahead with a fierce intensity.

Tazz: Look, man, I ain’t one to moan and complain about these kinda’ things. I usually leave that to Michael Cole. But, I mean, some folks have been sayin’ that it’s been pretty obvious lately, ever since our friend here (Nods to Noble) came back in January, that you’ve been doing everything you can to duck him. I mean, first there was the way you won at No Way Out, and then two weeks later when you attacked Jamie from behind and bloodied him up bad. What’s that all about?

As soon as he hears the comments, Kash’s smile freezes on his face … and he turns back to Tazz coldly.

Kid Kash: (Removing his shades slowly) So lemme’ get this straight … man. Ya’ll are gonna’ sit there and say that I’ve been duckin’ this boy right here ‘cause … ‘cause what? ‘Cause I went and beat his sorry ass twice? Is that what counts as duckin’ these days, Tazz? Two victories? Gimme’ a break. Boy, you ain’t gotta’ clue whatcha’ talkin’ about.

Tazz holds up his hands in peace, and KK throws his shades back on with a sigh.

Kid Kash: See I didn’t come here tonight, I didn’t go and take time outta’ my busy schedule … the schedule of a champion, Tazz … just to have these … these accusations thrown at me. I get enough o’ this bulls**t in the locker room from sorry punks who are nothin’ but jealous … nothin’ but pissed off ‘cause I beat every single one of ‘em over … and over … and over again. Envy’s a terrible thing, Tazz … but when ya’ll are as good as me … I guess ya’ better get used to it.

Tazz: Yeah, I get that, man. (Turns away from Kash and towards Noble) Jamie, when you returned to the WWE late last year you made your intentions perfectly clear: you wanted the Cruiserweight Championship, and when you got your first shot at it at No Way Out … well, let’s just say it was one of the most impressive performances I’ve ever seen, Jamie, and I’ve seen a lot. You beat five other guys that night, you went coast to coast, over thirty minutes, before the K.I.D here beat you by hook or by crook to retain th--

Kid Kash: You’ve gotta’ be kiddin’ me, right? ‘By hook or by hook’, Tazz? What are you sayin’, that the Cruiserweight Champion is nothin’ but a common thief? Is that what ya’ sayin’, boy? Huh? (Whips off his shades again fiercely) Imma’ gettin’ pretty sick and tired o’ this, so why don’t cha’ ask Jamie that question one more tim--

Noble’s arms flies across, flattening Kash back down into his seat, his hand holding the CW Champion firmly in place by the scruff of his neck. KK looks more offended then anything and tries to move, but Noble, still not looking at his opponent, rises out of his seat.

Tazz: C’mon, guys, save it for Sunday.

Jamie Noble: Ya’ don’t have to worry ‘bout that, Tazz.

Tazz sits back anxiously, as Noble slowly turns his eyes on Kash, who stares right back.

Jamie Noble: Now, boy, you listen and ya’ better listen up good. It don’t matter ‘bout the past anymore, Kash. It don’ matter that ya’ll have cheated ya’ way inta’ keepin’ that title at every turn … it don’ matter that - (Kash tries to look away but Noble forcibly pulls his face back around) -- it don’ matter that you’ve beaten me, bloodied me and pissed on me at every turn … none of that matters anymore, ‘cause this Sunday … it all stops. This Sunday … WrestleMania Tweny’ Two … I’m doin’ what I said I was gonna’ do when I came back six months ‘go. (Prods the title belt) I’m takin’ that home. See ya’ Sunday.

Noble coldly rips his arm away from Kash’s chest and stands back up, smoothing out his shirt, before giving Tazz a little nod, before turning and walking away as absolutely bad ass as humanly possible. Back in the interview area, Kid Kash lies in his chair in the exact position as Noble left him, his jaw quivering with rage, before he sits up quickly and wildly rakes his fingers through his long hair.

Kid Kash: DAMMIT!!! DAMMIT!!! (Sees Tazz still looking at him) WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU LOOKIN’ AT, SUPLEX BOY???!!! GO HOME TO YOUR DEAD COMPANY!!!

Completely enraged, Kash stands up and storms off screenshot, continuously screaming “DAMMIT” in the distance, leaving a rather perturbed looking Tazz sat all alone in the interview set.

Wrestle Mania Big Time Moment - X8 - The Rock faces Hulk Hogan for the 1st Time Ever, and beats The Immortal One, in a memorable match.

We are shown footage of what went down during the break. With the arrival of a rather swish limousine, and out step Lita and Mr. Money in the Bank Edge, dressed smartly in jeans and a shirt, sporting some shades and the briefcase. The point is also made that the World Heavyweight Champion Batista … is not here yet.

Match #2: Money in the Bank Preview Match:
Finlay vs. Gregory Helms
Unfortunately for these two great workers, with both men being bad ass tweeners {Finlay virtually a heel}, they aren’t given much time to work with for fear of the crowd not being too into it. The fans do show some love for both men though. The match starts off rough and rugged with these two technical wizards exchanging shots with every point and limb on their body – kicks and knees from Helms mainly, elbows, and a couple of particularly sinister head butts from Finlay.

Once Finlay sees his young opponent reeling from the ground and pound approach, he moves in for the kill. Helms manages to avoid the Celtic Cross, but gets caught in a couple of nasty submission moves on the mat. After Greg makes it to the ropes for a third time, Finlay grows frustrated and grabs his shillelagh, looking to rip Helms a new one. Luckily the referee grabs it in time and berates the Irishman, WHO SHOVES THE OFFICIAL DOWN!! The bell is rung instantly.
Winner: Gregory Helms via DQ at 6:21.
The crowd are extremely pissed at the result and boo it mercilessly, but Finlay couldn’t care less. The Fighting Irishman lets out a toothless smirk, as the referee rolls from the ring, and he grabs his shillelagh once more, turning around with evil intentions - BUT HELMS DROPKICKS IT RIGHT BACK IN HIS FACE!!

To a great reaction, Finlay goes crashing from the ring, leaving his beloved weapon behind. As the veteran lies on his back on the outside, touching his nose dazedly, young Gregory Helms reaches down and picks up the shillelagh, pointing up to the ceremonial briefcase hanging in the air, making his intentions perfectly clear, and getting a damn good crowd response at the same time.


Tazz: Wow, what a chaotic ending that match up. Gregory Helms not lettin’ the veteran Finlay bully him around. Hell of a way to head into this Sunday.

Michael Cole: Absolutely, Tazz. Judging from what we’ve seen in the build up to the Money in the Bank Ladder Match this Sunday, it’s going to be absolutely amazing, and the man who wins that kind of chaos will truly deserve it when they call themselves World Champion.

We immediately head backstage, to where Steve Romero is standing by with a microphone in hand.

Steve Romero: Good evening, ladies and gentlemen, and joining me at this time … they are ONE of the teams who will be challenging for the WWE Tag Team Championship this Sunday at WrestleMania Twenty-Two … please welcome, William Regal and Paul Burchill, The Bluebloods.

The rough and tough English duo enter screenshot to some liberal heat from Kansas City, both men set to go, long robes hanging over their wrestling gear.

Steve Romero: Gentlemen, in just a few moments you will be teaming with the WWE Tag Team Champions MNM to take on your long-time rivals Paul London and Brian Kendrick, and The Mexicools. What are your thoughts at joining forces with the team who, for all intents and purposes, beat you last week?

William Regal: Now … Steven is it? (Romero nods) Steven, if you can, I would recommend that you cast your mind all the way back to last week and tell everyone exactly what happened?

Steve Romero: Uh, well, you--

Without even needing prompting from his partner, Burchill snatches the mic from Romero and holds it out to Regal.

William Regal: Thank you, Paul. You must understand, Steven, we’ve had about as much of you gibbering like an idiot that we can stomach for one night, so why don’t you just sit back, relax, and allow myself and Paul conduct the remainder of this fruitless interview ourselves?

Muttering to himself, Romero skulks away, out of screenshot. Owned tbh.

William Regal: Since everyone in this place seems to be unable to see what is going on directly before them, I think it’s best that Paul and I describe what happened last week ourselves. You see, like every other match we’re involved in, we were quite comfortably dominating those pathetic pretty boys Mercury and Nitro and without any shadow of doubt, we would have been walking into WrestleMania Twenty-Two as the WWE Tag Team Champions.

The crowd boos in the background, as Regal rubs his chin angrily.

William Regal: That’s right. Until those miserable little toe rags, London and Kendrick decided to stick their noses in our business and cost us the bloody match!! (Burchill kicks the wall) Now, I understand that it must be hard for you young gentlemen to accept that all of your efforts over the past four months have been utterly pointless, and that in the end it will be myself and Paul Burchill walking out with the gold … BUT WHAT RIGHT DOES THAT GIVE YOU TO INTERFERE IN OUR MATCHES???!!!

Frowning, Regal holds up his free hand poignantly.

William Regal: None whatsoever, that’s what. You filthy bleeding beggars have crossed the wrong team this time, and tonight you’re going to learn--

???: (Clears throat)

Regal stops in mid sentence and he and Burchill turn as … Johnny Nitro, Joey Mercury, and the lovely Melina enter screenshot to some monster heat. The WWE Tag Team Champions are similarly dressed for combat, in their tights with their long coats on over the top, shades, and the title belts dangling from their mid drift.

William Regal: Can we help you, gentlemen (Sees Melina) … my dear??

Johnny Nitro: (Coolly lowers his shades) So … “pathetic pretty boys”, huh?

Paul Burchill: (Stepping forwards, bristling) That’s right, sunshine, only you won’t be so pretty after I’ve finished with you.

Nitro braces for a fight, as do Mercury and Regal too … only for Melina to intervene.

Melina: Boys, boys, boys … there’s no need for any of that. Why ruin a partnership before it’s even begun?

William Regal: I beg your pardon? “Partnership”?

Melina: Well, in case you’ve already forgot, Billy - I can call you Billy can’t I? - you and your buddy Paul here are teaming up with Johnny and Joey in a matter of minutes to take on … Paul London and Brian Kendrick. Now, it might just be … but I see an opportunity there.

Regal and Burchill look at one another dubiously, before folding their arms and nodding to Melina.

William Regal: Oh, I see, I see, my dear. Let me get this straight, you want myself and Paul Burchill to first of all help you take out The Mexicools and The Hooligans tonight, before doing exactly the same thing this Sunday…

Paul Burchill: …all so that you can stab us in the back and steal the bloody belts again, just loike’ last week eh, fellas?

Melina’s faker than sin smile freezes on her face, before quickly vanishing, as Nitro and Mercury both seethe.

Melina: (Through gritted teeth) You’re making a huge mistake, guys.

Joey Mercury: (Angrily removing his shades) A HUGE … mistake.

William Regal: Perhaps … if we were Americans, then such … primitive little mind games would work on us … but as you are well aware, we’re not bloody Americans … and that automatically makes us more intelligent than you. So (Ignoring Melina now. HOW?) if I were the two of you, gents, I’d be more worried about this Sunday than I would be about our match next. I’d be reminding myself that this Sunday it’s not fashion show, not a photo shoot, or a bloody catwalk…

Paul Burchill: …it’s a wrestling match, sunshine. (Pats Nitro roughly) And we’re better than you. See you out there.

Burchill and Regal smirk and walk past Nitro and Mercury, making sure to roughly bump shoulders with them as they do so, leaving the handsome WWE Tag Team Champions looking very concerned about their own well being in the none too distant future.

Tazz: Oh man, Bluebloods and MNM not getting’ on at all, and who can blame ‘em after what went down last week between them both. That match is gonna’ be off the chart later, and especially at WrestleMania.

Michael Cole: It sure will, partner, it sure will, and remember, for that match there’s going to be special Elimination rules, which means that in order to win the match, you have to beat BOTH teams. But up next, the second of our two very special interviews focusing on the competitors in a particular SmackDown match this Sunday. This time I had the very distinct pleasure of sitting down with none other than the five-time WCW World Heavyweight Champion and the current United States Champion Booker T, and his WrestleMania opponent, the legendary luchador, the courageous … Rey Mysterio. I warn you, folks, this one is a little disturbing and distasteful.

WRESTLEMANIA COUNTDOWN - 2 DAYS – UNTIL WE GO BIG TIME.



“WWE WrestleMania XXII, April 2nd, 8/7CT, live on pay-per-view”



A pre-taped video segment begins to play…

***


We cut to the sane nondescript backstage area, this time with the slightly more irritating sight of Michael Cole sitting in the black chair, facing the camera, holding a notepad of presumably questions. To his left sits the quiet, reserved Rey Mysterio, wearing his usual ‘casual’ ensemble of white tights, a black vest and a white mask; whilst to Cole’s right it is a much different story.
The man, the name, the legend, Booker T sits, suited and booted in not only the finest navy blue Armani suit that money can buy, but with a sumptuous leopard skin coat on over the top, looking positively extravagant. His wife Sharmell sits at his side also, gorgeous black dress, pearl earrings, and mink robe. The contrast between the two and Rey is amazing.


Michael Cole: As we all know, the United States Championship is one of the most pretigious titles in professional wrestling today, and this Sunday it will be on the line once again, but this time on the grandest stage of them all, WrestleMania. One battle that has gripped fans ever since January has been that of the Champion, the man to my right, Booker T, and the challenger, the man to my left, Rey Mysterio.
Rey, if I can, I’d like to direct my first question to you. This whole year, this whole run at the United States Championship seems to have been built on you trying to prove something to not only the wrestling world, but also yourself, as you attempt this Sunday to win your first ever heavyweight title. Many say you’ve already proved enough by earning the shot back at No Way Out, but what does it mean to you heading into the biggest match of you life this Sunday.

Rey Mysterio: (Opens his mouth)

Booker T: (Completely fucking oblivious) Yes, yes, you are quite right, Michael Cole, quite right indeed. All my life, ALL - MUH’ - LIFE … I have had to make a livin’, I have to had to scratch, and claw my way from the very DREGS of society in order to achieve the glorious … MAGNITUDE that you now see seated before you. Yes, indeed, Michael Cole, many have said that I am truly trying to prove somethin’ to muh’ … to myself … that even such a man as me, from humble beginnings in the streets of Houston, Texas, in … the … DIRT … I have proven and I will continue to prove this Sunday … that Fairy Tales, Michael … they do come true … they do come true.

Booker lowers his head ‘humbly’, clearly struggling to fight back the tears, as Sharmell quickly consoles her husband and pulls out a tissue, which she hands to her man.

Booker T: Thank you, my wife. (Blows his nose loudly) Thank you.

Michael Cole: (Raising his eyebrows) Well, thank you for that, Champ, but my question to Rey Mysterio still stands, so, Rey, if you would like to—

Booker T: And yet … (Handing his tissue back to Sharmell) And yet you are still quite right to question the significance of this year in comparison to the rest of my career, Michael. Muh’ spectacular career … that has seen championships and glory and success and more championships and more glory and more success … a career that has seen FIVE WCW World Heavyweight Championships no less … where does 2006 fit in?? I’ll tell ya’ where it fits. 2006 is already known as the year that Booker T established his legacy, established his legend … as the GREATEST United States Champion of all time.

Once again Booker lowers his head in mock humbleness, and Sharmell holds her heart, clearly overwhelmed by the goodness of her husband.

Michael Cole: Uh, Booker, do you mind if we let Rey get a little mic time in here tonight at some point--

Booker T: (Looking up quickly, clearly pissed) See it’s this, IT’S ‘DIS kinda’ trash ‘dat gets me PISSED OFF!!! I come here tonight, a mere fort-eight hours to the spectacle known as WrestleMania, at which I have a starring role, I GRACE … you, Michael Cole … you ungrateful son of a-- you ungrateful PEASANT … with my humble presence … and all I keep on hearin’ in muh’ ear is Rey Mysterio ‘dis an’ Rey Mysterio ‘dat!! I come here … I pour out my heart … and yet all I receive is NUTTIN’ … nothin’ but a goddamn SLAP IN THE FACE!!!

Cole looks extremely nervous as per usual, whilst Book rants and raves … though Rey remains silent and still.

Booker T: Look at him, Michael Cole (Pointing at Rey with both hands) Look at the PATHETIC WORM of a human being you have seated next to you at this minute. Why won’t he defend himself? Why, Rey? Why don’t you stand up - or as close as you can get - and “put me in muh’ place”?? C’mon, Rey Rey, I thought ‘dis was what you were all about?? Tryin’ to beat some respect inta’ your opponents, huh?? Well, lemme’ tell ya’ somethin’, Rey Rey, does the fact that I consider you … less than the smallest MAGGOT beneath my boot … not prove to you that I have NO - RESPECT - WHATSOEVER for you … Mysterio???

Michael Cole: C’mon, Booker, there’s no need for that. Let’s just try and--

Booker T: Naw’, ‘naw, Michael, I think there’s every GOD DAMN need for ‘dis, ‘cause I wanna’ know why little Rey Rey here ain’t standin’ up for himself?? I thought I couldn’t break ya’, Rey, I thought I couldn’t get to ya’?? (Rey doesn’t flinch and a shit-eating grin spreads across Book’s face) It would appear as though everyone has a limit, Michael … and weeks after weeks of losing to Kennedy, Kash and Finlay … weeks and weeks of bein’ shown why he’ll never make it in a man’s world … it looks as though they’ve finally gotten to little Rey Rey.

Cole looks anxiously at Mysterio, beginning to see the same thing as Booker. Rey’s head is completely bowed; he won’t look up even for a second, almost as though he is ashamed, as though he has no self-confidence at all remaining. Smiling like a Cheshire cat, Booker rises from his seat.

Michael Cole: Booker, don’t--

All Booker simply does is click his fingers in Cole’s face and the announcer is anxiously silenced instantly, all the while under the fierce glare of Sharmell alongside him.

Booker T: (Leaning in close) Rey … can you hear me??

There is not one flicker of a response from the veteran luchador, one of the most plucky performers of all time, almost as though his spirit has been completely crushed…

BOOKER SLAPS HIM RIGHT ACROSS THE DAMN FACE!!!

But Rey Mysterio, though his head is moved, he barely moves one inch. Book merely rubs the palm of his hand thoughtfully, mulling over the strange situation.


Booker T: (Glancing at his wife with a smirk) I guess not.

Placing a hand on Mysterio’s shoulder, Booker moves his head back in close to Rey’s, taking great care with his words.

Booker T: Rey … Rey … you’re doin’ the right thing. What’s the use in turnin’ up to WrestleMania this Sunday and humiliatin’ yourself in front of your wife … your kids?? Think of what it would do to ‘em, Rey. People like me … people like me are in a different class to you, Rey … and we always will be. People like me … are BETTER than you, Rey … and there nothin’ that can change that … so why … even … try??? Forfeit the match this Sunday, Rey Rey, and we can avoid all that. (Hitching up his leopard skin robe again) Thank you, Michael Cole.

With another deeply, deeply patronizing pat on Mysterio’s shoulder, Booker strides away from the set, with his pouting wife stalking after him, United Stated Championship belt in hand, leaving both Michael Cole and the watching crowd to deal with one of the most disturbing sights the WWE has witnessed in a long time: a man whose spirit … has been completely broken.

***


Back to ringside.

Michael Cole: Horrific, just horrific actions from Booker T. Unforgivable.

Tazz: Oh man, I’m worried about, Rey. I’ve known him a long time, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen him like that before.

Match #3: Eight Man Tag Team Match:
MNM (w/Melina) & The Bluebloods vs. The Hooligans & Mexicools
Unsurprisingly, these eight superstars put on an absolutely electric match up to send us into WrestleMania on a high, even with the lack of time given. At the eight minute mark, the contest goes into another gear, as Nitro and Super Crazy are tagged in. Nitro takes the little Mexican over with a big back body drop, before he turns around and gets taken out by London!!

London enters like a wild man and begins to lay into Nitro, with Kendrick and Psicosis soon joining the fun. Mercury, Regal and Burchill enter the fray, and the shit well and truly hits the fan. The two Englishmen and Mercury are taken over the top rope and down to the floor. Staggering back up to their feet, Regal, Mercury and Burchill look up just in time, as Brian Kendrick and Psicosis launch themselves over the top rope, taking all of the men out with a double corkscrew plancha!! The crowd cheers at the mayhem, as London takes a look, watching the Englishmen and the Hollywood A-lister clamber back up, and when they stand up tall, London steps up to the top rope, TAKING EVERYONE OUT WITH A SPRINGBOARD SHOOTING STAR PRESS!!! All six stars are in an absolute heap, as Super Crazy and Johnny Nitro pull themselves up.

Crazy lays into the tag champion with a flurry of right hands, before sending him off into the corner. Nitro hits the turnbuckle and Crazy races forwards, nailing a monkey flip, which Nitro flips out of, landing on his feet to a smattering of applause. A smirking Nitro turns around and Crazy wipes him out with a MOONSAULT from the second rung!! The crowd pops and Crazy climbs even higher, looking for the second of the trifecta, only for Nitro to boot the referee into the ropes, and Crazy crotches the turnbuckle. Still clutching his gut, Nitro quickly leaps up - AND HITS A SPRINGBOARD ENZIGUIRI!!! Crazy is wiped out and Nitro drags him out, keeping the Mexican’s feet suspended on the middle turnbuckle – AND NAILS THE CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER!!! 1... 2... 3!!!
Winners: MNM and The Bluebloods via pin fall at 9:37.
Nitro barely gets a moment to celebrate, as Paul London re-enters the ring, spinning him back around and lighting him up with right hands!! Nitro gives as good as he gets and begins to brawl with London wildly, the long time rivals whaling away on one another.

Nitro does what he does best, kneeing London in the gut, and shoots him off of the ropes. London comes flying back, avoiding a clothesline, hits the ropes, avoids another wild swing, hits the ropes a third time and then WIPES NITRO OUT WITH A RUNNING DROPKICK sending him through the ropes!!

London gives a smirk of triumph and turns around, where Brian Kendrick has re-entered the ring and slaps hands with his partner, before they go to salute the crowd, BRASS KNUCKS TO BOTH MEN FROM REGAL AND BURCHILL!!!

The crowd boos like there’s no tomorrow, as The Bluebloods viciously pull the brass knucks off their hands, shaking their fists and sneering, before turning around - DOUBLE FLYING KICKS TO BOTH MEN, SENDING THEM OUT OF THE RING!!! A thunderous mixed reaction erupts throughout the arena, as Mercury and Nitro do a little pose in the middle of the ring, having stabbed their opponents in the back!!

Melina enters the ring, spouting beautifully at Nitro and Mercury as though they just bought her a diamond necklace. She stands behind them, ‘presenting’ the men to the hostile crowd like any good valet would, as the WWE Tag Team Champions flex and strut in the middle of the ring, smirks on their handsome faces, holding their title belts up high, with both The Hooligans and Bluebloods laid out all around them.


Tazz: Wow, that partnership lasted a long time.

Michael Cole: Talk about egos. Melina’s matches her boy’s too it seems.

Tazz: Did I mention lately that I love her, Cole?

Michael Cole: Later on tonight, HUGE main event, for what could very well be the last time on live TV, The Nature Boy Ric Flair will be in action and his opponent will be Mister Money in the Bank Edge!! AND Bobby Lashley and Paul Heyman will address The Undertaker. Later tonight on SmackDown!

{Commercial Break}


Upon returning from the commercial break we head immediately back into the arena, where the crowd is still buzzing with the excitement from this final show before WrestleMania, as we cut over to our announcers again.

Michael Cole: Welcome back to Friday Night SmackDown, ladies and gentlemen, the two-days away from Wrestle- {thunder begins to rumble through the arena ~___~} – oh my, speaking of WrestleMania, it looks like it’s that time alr--

Cut to a video, presumably up on the Titan Tron.

***


Upon the screen is the familiar darkness of night, laced with an eerie mist, floating through the gloom like ash. The camera begins to drift further and further into it, delving into the setting so that it becomes clearer where we actually are; the matted grass; the mounds of earth, and the ominous scraping of a shovel at work: we are in a graveyard.

As the camera pans through the sinister locale, we become more and more aware of the rows upon rows of headstones, grey and cracked, decayed and old, each one housing some poor dead soul, each one bearing a different name. Though the camera does not drift too close to them, one can just about make out some of the names, hidden behind the weeds and chrysanthemums, upon the stone: “Jimmy Snuka”, “Ric Flair”, “Randy Orton”, and so on; each one proceeded by three menacing letters, R.I.P.

Having now moved quite far into the graveyard, we can just about make out, through the thick mist, a dark figure standing ahead of us. The figure is large; larger than the average human being, this is clear even through the darkness. As the camera approaches, it becomes apparent that the figure is adorned in a black robe, covering his head also, so that they appear almost as one of the shadows. They are moving though, slowly yet purposefully, bending down to shovel some more earth from the grave they are stood over. They are preparing it.

The camera comes right up behind the figure, looking over their shoulder at the empty hole before them. Alongside the gravedigger, lying near the pile of earth, is a casket. The old, battered wooden casket is half on its side, such is the height of the pile of dirt it is resting upon, but the grave is so deep that it must surely be near the time anyway. Sure enough, the digging ceases and the shovel is tossed to one side. The hulking, cloaked figure, walks over to the casket, leans over it, and PICKS IT UP as though it were a stone slab. With this impressive display of strength, the figure heaves the casket over to the grave and throws it in unceremoniously.

The figure moves slowly to the head of the grave, clasping his hands before him, and stands, staring down into the dark pit, as a familiar voice begins to sound. The voice does not come from the figure though, nor does it come from any fixed spot, but instead seems to echo all around.


???: {Echoing} Undertaker … Undertaker, this spot … this grave … we save for you. We see no reason … no reason on this earth to deny you the same fate that you … that you have handed unto others … no reason at all. Look around you … look around you … Deadman … you see so many graves … one for you … and one … for your … un … defeated … streak.

The robed figure casually steps to one side, revealing the tall, broad gravestone they were concealing behind them, and the camera closes in just enough to make out the writing upon it: “The Undertaker”.

???:{Echoing} Like you always say … Undertaker … like you always say … you have faced the best … Triple H … Ric Flair … Kane … Rand Orton … and you have beaten the best … all of their souls rest in this place … Deadman … but this Sunday … sadly … it is your time to take your rightful place … alongside them … forever … and ever.

Bending down, the robed figure bends down and lifts up a stick-looking object that was resting near his leg, a crowbar. Taking his time, the large shadow steps down into the grave and approaches the casket.

???: {Echoing} For years you have inflicted your tyranny over the wrestling world … Undertaker … for years you have prided yourself on being a destroyer … of careers … of livelihoods … but now it has come … full circle … and this Sunday it is time for you … Deadman … to stare into the eyes … of your maker … and fall.

Sticking the crowbar into the lid of the casket, the large figure wrenches back hard, causing the lid to tear away from the coffin, slipping away so that a hiss and cloud of mist flutters up into the night sky.

???: {Echoing} Now look into your future … Undertaker…

The camera hovers over the top of the casket, waiting for the mist to settle, and settle it does, revealing the hideous mannequin visage of … THE UNDERTAKER. It is clearly a mannequin due to the paleness and such, but it looks hideously real and might as well be The Phenom’s actual corpse, having much the same effect.

???: {Echoing} …look at your fate … Undertaker … look into its eyes … and remind yourself … if it was not for your lust … for your greed … for your hunger for power … Undertaker … you could have avoided all of this … but now … there is no turning back.

Standing before the ‘corpse’ of The Undertaker, the robed figure stands perfectly still for a few moments, before reaching up towards its hood.

???:
{Echoing} Undertaker…

The hood slides back effortlessly, revealing the wild, angry eyes … of BOBBY LASHLEY, who stares through the darkness, down at the body of The Deadman, as footsteps sound in the background.

???:
{Echoing} Rest…

Bobby Lashley does not move one inch, continuing to stare down at the figure of The Phenom, as another shadow can be seen approaching behind him, soft footsteps crunching over the wet grass.

???:
{Echoing} In…

The shadowy figure eventually emerges, coming up alongside the monstrous Bobby Lashley, revealing themselves … as PAUL HEYMAN, his mouth just open in a half speech, half smile, half sneer.

Paul Heyman:
{Whispering} Peace.

As Heyman says these very words, his eyes drift upwards, as the rumbling thunder begins in the sky, signifying the time for WrestleMania has now arrived. Lashley’s eyes never leave The Deadman’s fake frame, even as the rain begins to drizzle down from the heavens above, and the camera closes in so slowly, catching every little flicker of emotion on the face of The Real Deal, before finally focusing on his pale blue eyes, dripping with rain, but unflinching, unblinking, unafraid, completely focused, as we fade out.

***


We return to reality, as, dressed in his typical black vest and pads with a very focused expression on his face,, the Man Who Will Not Die, Matt Hardy, makes his way down the corridor and towards the ring.

Michael Cole: We might be chilled to the bone here in Kansas City, but up next, our final Money in the Bank preview match. The man who many consider to be the hottest superstar in the WWE right now, Matt Hardy, faces a big challenge in the shape of a former United States and Intercontinental Champion. ‘The Bad Apple’ Carlito takes on Matt Hardy, next!


{Commercial Break}


{Cole and Tazz reel off the SmackDown! WrestleMania card, before handing over to Ross and Coach in the studio for the Raw side of the card, identically to Monday night}

Match #4: Money in the Bank Preview Match:
Matt Hardy vs. Carlito (w/Chris Masters)
Though not quite as good as the tag team match earlier, this is the best of the MITB matches tonight, with both men working at their usual fast pace. The opening sees Carlito trying to get Hardy to lie down for him, which results in nothing but a punch in the mouth, much to the delight of the crowd. The Masterpiece tries to get involved as much as he can from ringside, showing his increased comfort with this ‘Enforcer’ role he has taken on lately, helping his buddy Carlito to dominate most of the match.

The finish comes when Hardy leaps off the top rope with his Downfall Leg drop, only for Carlito to roll out of the way, causing Matt to crash and burn. With his opponent down, Carly hits a springboard moonsault, but Matt moves too, and ‘Lito has to think quickly in order to land on his feet. Hardy grabs Carly, looking for the Side Effect, but ‘Lito manages to counter Matt’s own Side Effect, into the APPLE CORE!! Waiting for the former multiple-time tag team champion to get back up to his feet, Carly leaps up, thinking BACK STABBER - but Hardy quickly races backwards, squashing the Puerto Rican superstar in the turnbuckle!!

Seizing his opportunity, Hardy races forwards, hitting the clothesline on ‘Lito and then looking for the follow up Bulldog … only Chris Masters leaps up onto the apron, causing Matt to race over to him. As they argue {referee included} Carly has a quick bite of his apple from the far corner and heads over. He spins Hardy around and SPITS THE APPLE - but Matt ducks, AND CARLITO SPITS IN MASTERS’ FACE!!! The crowd roars, as The Masterpiece tumbles off the apron, and Carly looks horrified, quickly turning around, into a boot to the gut, followed by the TWIST OF FATE!!! 1 … 2 … 3!!!
Winner: Matt Hardy via pin fall at 9:13.
The crowd explodes, as Hardy pushes Carlito’s prone body away, and Masters still squirms on the outside. Matt gets back up to his feet, looking completely over the, as he raises his hands to both the crowd and the ceremonial briefcase hanging above, signalling his intent this Sunday, and with a perfect lead up no less, continuing his hotter than hot run of late.


Michael Cole: Matt Hardy wins AGAIN!!! Can you believe the streak this kid is on??!!

Tazz: It really is unbelievable, Cole. SmackDown’s gotta’ be bringing that briefcase home this Sunday -- oh, man, poor Carlito.

Michael Cole: With the odds of TWO MEN stacked against him, Matt Hardy still came out on top in a great match, and you have to think that on this current form, and with his history in ladder matches over the years, we could be looking at the odds on favourite to become the second ever Mister Money in the Bank!!

In the backstage interview area, we first have a close up of the familiar looking shiny black briefcase, before the camera pans out slowly to reveal the Rates R Superstar Edge, standing smugly, now dressed to compete, alongside his sultry girlfriend Lita, who holds the MITB briefcase in her hand. To the left of the ‘power couple’, SmackDown’s resident interviewer Josh Matthews stands by with microphone in hand.

Josh Matthews: Edge, later tonight you face The Nature Boy Ric Flair in what could very well be his last match ever on Television, but first, could I get some comments on the attack you perpetrated last week on the World Heavyweight Champion Batista, a man who hasn’t been seen yet t--

Edge: Let’s start with you first question shall we, ‘cause I really don’t feel like standing around here looking at your face for longer than I have to, chumpstain, okay?

Edge stares at Matthews angrily, and Josh nods.

Edge: I don’t care that this could be Ric Flair’s last match on TV …I don’t care that I could send him out on a loss … I don’t even care about Ric Flair. As far as I’m concerned, little ole’ Naitch is just a warm up match for me before a take what I’ve been waiting for my whole career … the World Heavyweight Championship this Sunday at WrestleMania.

The crowd boos in the background loudly.

Edge: And you wanna’ stand there and criticise what I did to Batista last week? Let’s say that one more time shall we? What I did … to Batista. That’s ‘Big’ Dave Batista … that’s ‘The Animal’ Dave Batista … that’s the man who, I have constantly had rammed down my throat all year, “Is the most dominant World Heavyweight Champion of all time, OH MY!” That’s the guy who walked out to the ring last week like the stupid son of a bitch that he is and got EXACTLY what he deserved. EXACTLY. A champion should have a brain in his head … and as far as I’m concerned, what happened last week … was fair game.

Heat for that comment.

Edge: Batista can turn up tonight or not, I really … don’t … care. He can choose to stay at home this Sunday and surrender that title of his to me where it would be going anyway … it doesn’t matter to me at all. It doesn’t matter. The simple fact is that after April Second I’m gonna’ take this (Points to briefcase) and make a little exchange with a certain gold belt … and ALL OF YOU will be forced to call me … YOUR … World … Heavyweight … Champion. Let’s go.

Grabbing Lita’s free hand, Edge drags her away quickly, roughly barging past Josh Matthews on the way out, leaving the interview area to a huge background rumbling of heat, as we fade out once more.

{Commercial Break}


Raw Rebound:
~ Benjamin retains the IC title against Kenny, but the SS lay the WGTT out afterwards.
~ Triple H cuts a scathing promo on RVD 6-days away from their Street Fight, and the two men have to be restrained by security at the end.
~ Trish Stratus accidentally nails Mickie James during their match, whilst Victoria dominates.
~ Following Cena’s ‘accidental’ distraction, HBK manages to defeat Angle with a cheap roll-up in the non-title Main Event, but it is Cena who stands tall at the close of the show, laying out both of his opponents.


Main Event: Ric Flair’s Choice of Opponent:
‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair vs. Mr. Money in the Bank Edge (w/Lita)
If this is indeed to be the last TV match of Ric Flair’s long career then both he and Edge make sure it is not only a good one for that reason, but also to send SmackDown into WrestleMania on a real high. Naitch puts on a real clinic of how to entertain in the opening, complete with faux handshake to hair slick, plenty of strutting, and a whole load of “Woooing” much to the crowd’s delight, all the while driving The Rated R Superstar round the bend.

As the match gets a decent about of time, we head into the finishing straight at around the ten minute mark, when Edge goes up top, thinking high risk, only to be caught sleeping by the wily veteran and hurled head over heels down to the canvas. Going up top himself in a wild move, Flair takes Edge down with a big axe handle, scoring a near fall, before grabbing the Canadian’s legs, signalling Figure Four Leg Lock - Edge has it well scouted though and kicks The Nature Boy into the turnbuckle. When Slick Ric staggers back, Edge boots him in the gut and plants him with the EDGECUTION DDT!! Mr. MITB hooks both legs, but Naitch still somehow survives!!

With Flair down across the ring, Edge decides he’s had enough, and crouches down in the corner, waving his fingers in front of his face, psyching himself up for what we all know. Naitch stumbles around, and EDGE GOES FOR THE SPEAR - ALL HE HITS HIS THE TURNBUCKLE THOUGH!! Flair moved like a twenty-year-old to get out of the way, but he doesn’t back off, quickly racing up behind the dazed Rated R Superstar, TAKING HIS KNEE OUT WITH A CHOP BLOCK!! The crowd cheers Flair moving into his final phase, as he chops Edge’s lanky frame down like a big oak tree, with no less than three chop blocks!!

He tries the Figure Four a second time, but Edge ROLLS HIM UP!! Ric just kicks out, and Edge throws a rabid clothesline, which Naitch ducks, lifting Mr. MITB up high, before bringing him crashing down with the knee/shin breaker, keeping hold of Edge’s left leg as the Canadian falls flat on his back, spinning around, falling back, APPLYING THE FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK AT LONG LAST!!! Dead centre in the ring, Edge has absolutely nowhere to go, as Lita throws a fit at ringside, and The Rated R Superstar writhes around in total agony in the ring, whilst the crowd “Woos”, willing him to tap … AND HE DOES!!! EDGE TAPS!!!

But there’s no bell … BECAUSE THE REFEREE IS DEALING WITH LITA!!!

The crowd pours some astounding heat on the red-headed bombshell, as she distracts the referee, whilst Flair sees this and angrily shakes his head, releasing the hold, and climbing back to his feet, turning around to make his move on the official and LITA … WHAAAAAMMM!

RIC FLAIR GETS NAILED IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD WITH THE MONEY IN THE BANK BRIEFCASE … BY JOHN BRADSHAW LAYFIELD!!!!

You want to talk about white-hot heat, then this is it. Still looking angry, still looking pissed off, a scruffy looking JBL, still with his torn shirt on, stares ahead wildly, as Flair doesn’t go down, but instead staggers blindly into the ropes. Bradshaw rolls out of the ring with the briefcase, conveniently enough just as Lita hops off the apron, and Flair staggers away from ropes … RIGHT INTO A SPEAR FROM EDGE!!! 1 … 2 … 3!!!
Winner: Edge via pin fall at 12:09.
Kansas City does not like this result one iota, as a smug, snarling Edge barely even celebrate, just rolls out of the ring and snatches his MITB briefcase up off the floor, grabbing Lita’s arm and heading up the ramp.

Seeing his opportunity, JBL slithers into the ring like a miserable snake, and grabs the floored Nature Boy by his bleached blonde hair, dragging him up to his feet, looking to do some more damages - FLAIR SPRINGS BACK TO LIFE AND CHOPS THE HELL OUT OF JBL, taking Bradshaw by surprise, as he knocks him against the ropes, and Naitch charges, CLOTHESLINING BOTH HIMSELF AND JBL OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE FLOOR BELOW!!!!

Edge and Lita watch with little smirks on their faces from half-way up the ramp, as both Flair and JBL stagger groggily back up to their feet, AND IMMEDIATELY BEGIN TO WHALE AWAY ON ONE ANOTHER ONCE AGAIN!!! Layfield boots Naitch against the barricade and races forwards, but gets back dropped INTO THE CROWD!!! Kansas goes berserk once again, as Flair scrambles over the barrier too, and he and Bradshaw immediately begin hammering away like cats and dogs again, disappearing into the melee of the masses until they’re out of view.

Back in the middle of the ramp, Edge and Lita laugh, whilst The Rated R Superstar gives a little ‘mocking’ applause for the efforts of Flair and JBL, before snatching his briefcase up once again and turning on his heel at the top of the ramp…






***I WALK ALONE***

Kansas City loses it’s collective mind WITH THE OFFICIAL LOUDEST POP OF THE NIGHT, as Edge and Lita both freeze … and ‘The Animal’, the World Heavyweight Champion Dave Batista steps out onto the stage. Scared to death doesn’t quite cover the expression on Edge’s face, as he stares into the eyes of the man he delivered a sickening con-chair-to to last week.


Michael Cole: OH MY!!! THE ANIMAL HAS ARRIVED!!! THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION IS IN THE BUILDING!!!

Tazz: Oh my god, look at his face, Cole!!! GET THE HELL OUTTA’ THERE, EDGE!!!

Batista is dressed in jeans and a black vest, carrying the World title in one hand, and sporting a nasty looking bandage on his scalp. Before Edge can even react, ‘Tista drops the belt and lunges, HAMMERING EDGE HALF WAY DOWN THE RAMP WITH A FLURRY OF HARD RIGHT HANDS!!!

There is nothing Lita can do, as Edge falls head over heels backwards, dropping the MITB briefcase on the ramp, and virtually rolling back down to the ringside area. As he lands there, Edge stumbles back up to his feet, holding his hands up, begging for mercy fruitlessly, but Big Dave simply swats Edge’s arms out of the way, lifts him up, AND SPINEBUSTERS MR. MONEY IN THE BANK RIGHT AGAINST THE RING APRON!!!!

Edge would fall right then, but The Animal catches him and lifts him up again, DELIVERING A SECOND ‘BUSTER RIGHT INTO THE HARD RING APRON!!! With the crowd roaring him on, ‘Tista doesn’t even let the Toronto native fall this time, as he quickly grabs his arms, rears back, AND SENDS EDGE CRASHING INTO THE STEEL STEPS WITH TREMENDOUS VELOCITY!!!!

Lita rushes forwards, pleading with Deacon Dave, but if looks could kill, she would be six feet under after the one Big Dave locks on her with, and she scurries back quickly. With Edge crawling, hands and knees, trying to just stay alive let alone get away, Batista sets upon him once again, hooking him up in the air, lifting him up onto his massive shoulder, racing forwards, HURLING EDGE LIKE A JAVELIN FACE-FIRST INTO THE STEEL RING POST!!!

The crowd “OOOHHHS” at the sight and sound of Edge’s skull cracking the metal, and The Rated R Superstar’s body slumps down against the ring apron on his front, barely moving, whilst ‘Tista still seethes with absolute fury, eyes wider than ever. AND BATISTA - STILL - IS - NOT - DONE!!!

Grabbing a handful of blonde hair, ‘Tista brings Edge back up to his knees, and we see that Mr. MITB has been badly
BUSTED WIDE OPEN by that shot to the ring post. The Animal smells blood and hammers away on the open wound over … and over … and over again, showing his sadistic ruthlessness!!

With Edge virtually a rag doll now, Batista lifts him up and rolls him back into the ring under the bottom rope, before sliding in after him. There is no movement from The Master Manipulator now, so Big Dave has to pick him up again, and plants him with A SPINEBUSTER!!!! Batista almost shivers with rage, as he lets out a guttural roar to a huge pop.

With the ring canvas now stained with the blood of his WrestleMania opponent, ‘Tista decides to add the final nail in the coffin of his challenger, lifting him back up, sticking him between his legs, lifts him up, before DELIVERING THE MOST DEVASTATING BATISTA BOMB you will probably ever see!!!

Edge lies flat on his backs, spread eagled, eyes closed, not even blinking, as Big Dave stares down at him with complete and utter contempt. Without even thinking, ‘Tista drops down and rolls out of the ring again, waving at the timekeeper and company to get the hell out of the way, which they do … fast. The Animal grabs a STEEL CHAIR and folds it up angrily with a thud, before snatching up a second one as well, and heading back into the ring.

With Lita still hiding outside the ring, Dave marches over to Edge and slides one of the chairs underneath his motionless head, as the crowd lets out quite a mixed reaction upon finally realising how far this vengeance has gone. Still holding the other chair in his hand, Batista stands over Edge, oblivious to the crowd, just with one thought one his mind.

As Lita screams, “NOOOOO” from ringside desperately, and Michael Cole and Tazz do the same, ‘Tista raises his chair up high into the air, thinking CON-CHAIR-TO … but he freezes. Lita holds her breath, as Batista holds his position for at least thirty seconds, his face never changing, but his mind clearly working, as he looks down at his most hated enemy … but he TOSSES THE CHAIR ASIDE!!!

Another mixed reaction from the fans because let’s face it, wrestling fans are sick bastards right? Some of them wanted carnage. The Animal slowly gets down on his haunches and stares right into the unconscious and bloody face of Edge, holding up his finger and thumb to show how close he just came to ending the career of The Rated R Superstar.

As the medics and EMT’s come rushing down the ramp like mad men, Batista can be heard saying to Edge:


“I don’t need to. You hear that you son of a bitch? I don’t need to.”


And with that, Big Dave walks right by the medics as they flood the ring, right by Lita, not giving any of them a second glance, climbs out of the ring, and heads back up the ramp without ever looking back. Lita kneels over her boyfriend, teary eyes, as he’s tended to, whilst Batista simply stops at the top of the ramp to pick up his World Heavyweight Championship again, throws it over his shoulder, and disappears through the black curtain to exit the arena. Message sent. Job done ‘til ‘Mania. Completely bad ass.

Our last shot before heading into our FINAL commercial break of the evening, is via a camera man standing over the bloody Edge, showing the terrible state he has been left in a mere forty-eight hours away from the biggest match of his life at WrestleMania.


{Commercial Break}







***BURN IN MY LIGHT***

If there was one man who was going to beat the heat garnered tonight by Edge and JBL, then it is this man. Kansas City rises to its feet, as it is possible to ignore the malicious magnetism, jeering, booing and giving the usual thumbs down, as Randy Orton strolls out onto the stage. As every student of Ric Flair should be, The Legend Killer is dressed immaculately in a dark Armani suit, with an open collar, and his usual soulless, emotionless, cold gaze, as he gazes up into the baying rafters. Behind him, the golden rain begins to fall; illuminating him majestically against the dark set, but TLK pays it no heed, and instead begins his menacing stalk down the ramp.


Michael Cole: Well there he is; quite possibly the most hated man in the wrestling world right now. The man who ended the career of Teddy Long with one kick, and the man who took out the boss without blinking.

Tazz: Look at his eyes, Cole; this is one cold bastard.

Taking his time ascending the steel steps, Randy steps through the ropes into the ring. Instead of bothering with his usual posing up the turnbuckle, he saunters straight over to the ropes and is handed a microphone from Tony Chimel, who hurries as quickly as possible, not wishing to spend any time near such a dangerous man. With his music fading away, the true volume of the hatred being shown to the TLK becomes more clear, with seemingly every fan booing themselves hoarse. As you would expect, Orton’s face portrays no emotion, not changing once, as he waits in the centre of the ring. As the noise finally begins to drop off slightly, Orton raises the microphone to his lips.

Randy Orton: Don’t … don’t adjust your television sets … don’t rub your eyes … because the man … the man who opened the final Monday Night Raw before WrestleMania … is now closing the final Friday Night SmackDown … too.

Hellacious heat for this egotistical statement, whilst Orton sneers blankly.

Randy Orton: And to think … to think of all that men like Theodore Long … men like Vincent Kennedy McMahon … and Shane McMahon … to think of all they went through to ensure that I … to ensure that RANDY ORTON … would not get his rightful spot at WrestleMania … would not be seen by millions around the world … would not be … THE … centre … of … attention … to think that all they did … was for … nothing.

With a majestic swipe, Randy runs a hand across his jaw.

Randy Orton: What could have been avoided in the long run? I’ll tell you … I’ll you what could have been avoided … Teddy Long could have avoided having to learn how to speak again … after MY BOOT … collided with his skull … Vince McMahon could have avoided eating his caviar through a straw … ever since I BROKE HIS DAMN NECK … and, Shane … there’s no telling what you could have avoided … there’s no telling at all … if you’d all just … donetherightthing.

Boos continue to flood the ring, but The Legend Killer’s gaze is faultless.

Randy Orton: I made it clear … I made it easy for you all to understand … that not only am I the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in history … not only am I a third generation superstar … or The Legend Killer … no, forget about small details like that … what Teddy Long … what Vince McMahon … and what Shane McMahon should have understood … {trying so hard not to smirk} is that I AM WrestleMania … I AM the Main Event … and I AM the W … W … E.

More astonishing heat, as Orton’s callous tone drives the crowd wild.

Randy Orton: With all that I have accomplished in my short career … all that I have done … all the championships that I have won … all the legends that I have killed … why shouldn’t I demand my rightful spot in the biggest match … at the biggest pay-per-view … on the biggest stage?? It was simple … I wanted Angle … or I wanted Batista … AND I’D EARNED THAT RIGHT!!

All this outburst of anger achieves is to shock the crowd into another onslaught of heat, as Randy composes himself once more, smoothing out his suit.

Randy Orton: But it doesn’t matter … none of that matters anymore … ‘cause here I stand … without a championship around my waist … Vince and Shane made sure of that … without the Main Event match at WrestleMania … without any of that … {raises his head, sneering} and yet … I am still the man who everyone is here to see tonight … and the man who THE WHOLE WORLD will be watching when it comes to Chicago this Sunday.

A very loud “ASSHOLE” chant begins to flitter through the rafters above to the lower tiers.

Randy Orton: And do you know … do you know why?? It’s ‘cause if you try to take from me what is rightfully mine … then I … will take from you … something ever dearer … and this Sunday … the whole world will be tuning in to watch me … END AN ERA … to watch … as I do to Shane McMahon what no man has ever done before; not Kane … not The Big Show … not The Rock … not Hunter … not even HIS OWN FATHER!!

Salivating at the mouth, Orton turns to face the stage.

Randy Orton: How does that feel, Shane?? To be … alone … for the first time in your life?? This time there’ll be no Daddy … no Mummy … no Steph … no Hunter … no Corporation … no Alliance … no Patterson … no Briscoe … no butler … no security … NO ONE!! This Sunday, Shane … you’re gonna’ be … all … ALONE … alone in that ring with a man … man who has beaten EVERYONETHAT THERE ISTO BEAT!!

TLK looks positively insane as he stares at the stage.

Randy Orton: And how does it feel … how does it feel, Shane … knowing that not only is that man gonna’ make you bleed … gonna’ break every bone in your body … and put you in a wheelchair for the rest of your life … but how does it feel, Shane to know that after all of that … after all of that … when you’re lying flat on your back … your career … and your family’s career … will be … over … and it’s yourfault.

Randy steps towards the ropes, pointing back up the ramp.

Randy Orton: But I didn’t just come out here … I didn’t just come out here on the final spot before WrestleMania … to talk about you, Shane McMahon … I came out here for you, Shane.

The crowd begins to buzz in anticipation, as Orton’s cold eyes drift up the ramp.

Randy Orton: Shane … come out here.

As TLK takes a step back to the centre of the ring, a huge “SHANE-O-MAC” chant builds amongst the crowd, urging the billionaire daredevil on, whilst Orton salivates.

Randy Orton: Unless you’re afraid??





***HERE COMES THE MONEY***

The crowd comes alive with an amplified roar due to this being the first time in a long time that the famous theme music has been heard, coming to their feet to cheer on the most popular non-wrestler in the business, as Shane McMahon slowly walks out onto the stage. McMahon still looks rough, his hair his long, and his face is unshaven, but he has still managed to dress in a smart pair of black pants and a matching Gucci shirt, collar open. Standing still for a few moments, eyes focused on the ring with a cold rage, Shane stares at his WrestleMania opponent. Orton takes a step backwards, calling McMahon on in, and Shane begins to slowly saunter down.

Orton backs right off, giving the birth of the ring to the wary Shane, who takes his time climbing the steel steps, before stepping through the ropes. Randy’s eyes never leave McMahon, and Shane’s eyes never leave Orton, as the young billionaire walks across the ring and snatches a microphone from Chimel. As Shane’s music begins to fade, he turns and we get a great shot of the two rivals mere feet from each other in the squared circle, eye to eye, until Orton blinks first in order to speak.


Randy Orton: Shane--

Just as Orton’s mouth opens the crowd drowns him out with another booming “SHANE-O-MAC” chant, drawing absolutely no reaction from the serious as a heartbeat McMahon, but a flicker of rage from TLK.

Randy Orton: Shane … before you say anything … I have something I think you should see…

Orton motions over Shane’s shoulder up at the titantron, and both McMahon and the crowd shift their focus in that direction…

***

No Way Out 2006: Long drops his microphone to the ground with a thud and turns around to leave the ring … BUT ORTON MOVES QUICKLY AND SPINS HIM AROUND, LEAPING UP AND NAILING A SICKENING RKO!!!

The crowd erupts into boos and screams, as Long lies in a heap in the centre of the ring, with Randy Orton kneeling over him, staring into his face. Eric Bischoff rolls from the ring quickly and begins to back up the ramp fearfully. Orton slowly rises back to his feet, glaring around at the crowd with his soulless eyes to THUNDEROUS heat. He slowly removes his suit jacket, so that he is only wearing his ‘RKO’ t-shirt over his pants. He then drops down onto his front and begins to pound the canvas with his knuckles.

On his front, Teddy Long has fallen in such a way that he is almost on all fours already, despite being barely conscious, with his head raised in the air. The crowd have no idea what the hell Orton is planning, as he stares at the General Manager viciously, before backing up into the corner. Orton waits, watching Long like a lion might watch its prey … BEFORE RACING OUT AND DELIVERING A CRIPPLING PUNT RIGHT TO THE SIDE OF LONG’S HEAD!!!

Orton spins away, still with his eyes fixed on the GM, who lies flat on his back, eyes closed, damn near dead. The crowd is frozen in shock, as an entire entourage of officials begin to charge down the ramp towards the ring to swarm around Teddy Long and keep Randy Orton away. Though still looking hungry for more, Orton slowly begins to back away, eyes still locked on the lifeless General Manager.



***


With the ending of the footage, we are brought back straight back to a close up of Shane McMahon’s face, as he stares an absolute hole through Randy Orton. The crowd is booing at an insane level, as Orton, hungrily staring in McMahon’s eyes, steps forwards.

Randy Orton: Had enough?? Wait … it gets even better…

As though sensing what is coming next, Shane stares right ahead, as Randy motions back to the titantron once more…

***


SmackDown! 10/03/06: The camera jumps into the audience, showing the horrified expressions on the faces of the fans, especially the younger ones. There are hands over faces and some definite tears, as Orton grips Shane’s chin, pulling his head up -- AND SLAPPING HIM RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE!!! Now Shane seems to be fully awake again, which is exactly what Randy wanted, as he leers right in the face of the struggling McMahon heir. The camera manages to get so close to the fray, that the words spat out by “The Legend Killer” are quite clear: “YOU WATCH THIS!!!”

After a quick and anxious glance up the ramp, Orton prowls over to where the helpless Mr. McMahon lies and quickly pulls him up to his feet by the scruff of his neck. Randy stares triumphantly into the eyes of the Chairman, but Vince is so out of it, his face registers nothing. Orton quickly moves to his right and tosses him onto the desk!! The desk does not break though, and Orton methodically climbs up onto the desk behind McMahon, as he struggles to his knees on the surface and Shane McMahon watches on with a horrified expression on his face -- RKO THROUGH THE DESK!!!

Tremendous “OOOOHHHHHHH” rings out from the watching masses, followed by an ungodly amount of heat, as Vince McMahon is laid out, his neck damn near broken, large wooden fragments resting by and on his fallen frame. Orton steps back up to his feet, and grabs the stray contract. Randy slowly holds the piece of paper up high for all to see, especially a frantic Shane McMahon -- AND HE TEARS THE CONTRACT IN HALF!!!



***


Back in the ring and the crowd’s distaste can be heard loud and clear, as Shane McMahon hangs his head, his face a mixture of sadness, rage and confusion. Orton looks absolutely delighted {in a psychotic kind of way} as he steps forwards.

Randy Orton: THAT’S the man you’re up against this Sunday, Shane – a man willing to break necks … shatter skulls …end careers … all to get a spot in a main event match … SO WHAT DO YOU THINK I’M WILLING TO DOTO THE MAN WHO’S TAKEN AWAY MY DREAM, HUH??!! WHAT LINES DO YOU THINK I’LL CROSSTO END YOUR FAMILY’S CAREERAND RUINYOUR LIFEJUST LIKE YOU RUINED MINE!!??

Orton is damn near foaming at the mouth, as he gets right in Shane’s face, as McMahon stares right back.

Randy Orton: {much quieter, menacing} Who’s gonna’ come and save you, Shane?? … what superstar from the past … or present GIVES A DAMN … about you and your family?? … Austin?? Hogan?? Savage?? Bret?? ‘Taker?? Flair?? Rock?? Kane?? They … HATE … your guts. No … Shane … this Sunday … you … are … ALONE

Shane looks up, right into Randy’s face, as TLK speaks once more.

Randy Orton: {virtually a whisper} So what makes you think … you stand a chance … against me??

All McMahon does for a few moments is stare back into the eyes of Orton, before slowly bringing up his own microphone.

Shane McMahon: … … …This.

SHANE DRILLS ORTON IN THE FACE WITH THE MICROPHONE, CLOTHESLING THE LEGEND KILLER DOWN TO THE CANVAS!!!

Kansas City absolutely erupts, as Randy is taken completely by surprise, hitting the deck hard, clutching his head. With his enemy stunned, McMahon quickly grabs Orton by the scruff of his neck, dragging him back up to his feet, racing forwards, and HURLING THE FORMER WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE!!

Landing in a heap, TLK tries desperately to recover his senses, scrambling around on all fours, as Shane, pumping his fist like a madman, clambers through the ropes and drops down in hot pursuit. Gathering his bearings a little bit, Orton tries to pull himself up using the announce table, but McMahon is on him quickly. The rash, impetuous, hot blooded Shane ‘O Mac rushes in quickly, looking to get himself a piece of the man who injured his father … but the wily snake Orton thinks quick, catching Shane’s shirt and dragging him into the table hard!!

Orton watches with a pained smirk, before angrily rushing forwards, the psychotic look in his eyes once again, slamming Shane against the announce table several times, whilst Tazz, Cole and everyone else begs the third generation superstar to stop to stop. With McMahon crumpling down dazedly onto his hands and knees, trying to get his wits about himself, Orton leans back, eyes closed, arms outspread wide, soaking up the whole moment. Orton then backs up, before charging forward, AND PUNTS SHANE MCMAHON RIGHT IN THE HEAD!!!!!

The women in the first few rows let out a series of ear-piercing screams, as McMahon’s body is tossed back down to the floor like a rag doll. The heat in the closing moments of the show are absolutely astonishing, as Orton coldly stares down at a completely motionless Shane. The show fades to black with Tazz and Cole breaking away from commentary to check on McMahon, while everyone in attendance stares at the psychotic Orton with complete and utter fear.

Smackdown! Feedback


Awesome way for this show to start … as they weren’t on Raw but they were promised to be on Smackdown! … and the promo between Flair and JBL was off the charts. Flair talking on his own was good and him running down his career actually made me think that this could be his final appearance on WWE TV. Just as Flair seems to get the most excited … JBL comes strutting out to the ring. Great back and forth, with JBL getting all the heel heat by putting down Flair’s entire WWE career. JBL talking about Flair using politics was crossing the line a little bit but that’s what made the segment so great. Good back and forth to end the segment before Flair … EXTENDS HIS HAND~? JBL takes the bait and Flair gives him a quick thumb to the eye! Awesome way for Flair to get the upper hand heading into WM22, as JBL was the one outsmarted by ‘The Nature Boy’. I do see JBL looking for some revenge when Flair takes on Edge in the main event.

Sounds like an epic show … the ending with Orton and Shane should be huge just because they have had such a personal feud in such a short time.

Nice choice for the opening MITB preview match between KK and Chavo. Both men have been on a roll as of late, as have most of the MITB competitors, and I like the pace that this match had. Both men were close with their finishers on many occasions and Chavo hitting the Three Amigos was pretty good … great way to slip in the Eddie tribute without making a big deal about it. After Kennedy missed the Kenton, I knew that Chavo would miss the Frog Splash. Kennedy picking up the win the way he did kept both men looking strong, as Chavo kicked out after so he didn’t look horrible. Kennedy and Hardy are the two favorites heading into MITB II this Sunday, imo.

Awesome interview segment between Kash and Noble. I love how Tazz, even though he loves Kash and says that he is a great champion, talks about the way that he won some of his matches as CW Champ. Kash is very defensive about some of the accusations and I think that he will be at a disadvantage on Sunday because he is overconfident and also a little unsure of his abilities. Noble says very little but he does send a very clear message to Kash by pushing him back in his chair. Kash seems to be going a little crazy before the match … and that might be playing right into Noble’s hands. Very good segment to hype up a match that isn’t getting the most attention.

Not surprised that Finlay and Helms didn’t get a ton of time together because they are both heelish tweeners. Good to see Finlay being so technically savy because he needs to prove that he is a World Title contender. Finlay’s frustration was a little premature, as I thought he had the match won anyway, and I was shocked to see him get DQ’ed. Helms is able to get the advantage after the match and I like that Helms may be turning face. Both men look strong heading into MITB … but I don’t see either man walking out with the briefcase.

Very good segment from The Bluebloods. They are kinda the forgotten team in this WM22 match just because MNM and The Hooligans have been feuding for so long. After Regal owns Romero, he and Burchill talk about all the reasons that they are great. They are pissed that the Hooligans cost them the belts last week and they have a reason to be mad. MNM try and get Regal and Burchill on their side for the match at WM22 but William and Paul are too smart for that. They own MNM also, although I didn’t like the American bashing, and they seem to be on their own for tonight and WM22. Can’t wait to see how MNM and The Hooligans react.

I like that you used the two interviews to get over the US and CW Championship matches. Rey has been the most broken man in the company since Booker has been putting him down week after week. Rey doesn’t even get a chance to speak, as Booker cuts him off and talks about his own career. Rey is losing confidence with each and every word that Booker is saying … and that is playing right into the US Champ’s hands. The slap was the icing on the cake and now it looks like Rey doesn’t have a chance on Sunday. Booker may have the pride before the fall, imo.

Very good eight-man tag team match to get all of these guys on the show before THE show. The ending was very hectic and I like how London and Kendrick looked really strong, taking down Mercury and the Bluebloods. With everyone on the outside, Crazy looks to have the win, but then you realized that Nitro is actually awesome, and he gets the big victory with the Neckbreaker off the middle rope. Good aftermath, with both challengers getting their time to shine … before MNM are the final team standing. Really leaves the winner to the Triple Threat Elimination Match undecided … as all three teams could walk out with the belts. Beautifully done angle, simply awesome.

Very good promo to give the final hype for the match between ‘Taker and Lashley at WM22. I could have sworn that you said that ‘Taker would face Heyman this week on SD! … I thought that was from the last SD! … which was months ago. Anyway, a chilling promo to say the least and Lashley has been built marvelously during this entire feud. I loved the ending with Heyman walking in and saying the final line. I hope that the match lives up to the hype that you have created. Lashley will be one hell of a challenge for ‘Taker … but I see the streak remaining intact.

Saving the best for last in terms of the MITB preview matches, I see. Carlito and Matt are two of the favorites and using Masters as a bodyguard has worked out perfectly, imo. Good back and forth and with the roll that Hardy has been on as of late, we all knew he’d get the win. Hopefully the problem between Masters and ‘Lito will lead to a feud down the line. Good way for Hardy to win … as he and Kennedy are the two that could easily win MITB. Hope that the match delivers because it has a chance to steal the show and make mid-card guys main eventers in the process.

Edge has been owning as of late and I think that he has been a great addition to SD! ever since he announced that he was facing Batista at WM22. Talking about the assault last week was good and Edge has all the confidence in the world. I know that Batista will show his face tonight but I doubt he will get his hands on Edge … they need to save the physicality for Sunday, imo. Edge and Flair should put on an awesome match.

Good back and forth action between Flair and Edge … great choice for the main event. I knew that Flair wouldn’t win cleanly but he also wouldn’t lose cleanly … because both he and Edge need to look strong heading into WM22. Flair getting Edge to tap out was surprising but then I realized Lita had the referee distracted. JBL coming out was expected after what happened earlier and now he costs Flair the victory. Good that Flair and JBL didn’t get much settled after the match, as they head into the crowd. This leaves Edge and Lita on the ramp … but that doesn’t last long because … HERE COMES THE ANIMAL~! I don’t think I’ve seen a beatdown as brutal as the one ‘Tista laid on Edge. Completely unexpected and completely awesome. Batista leaves Edge in a horrible state two days before ‘Mania and he is clearly the favorite heading to Chicago. This makes me think Edge could lose the match at WM22 … but he will somehow win the belt, he does have MITB. EPIC segment before the main event for Smackdown!.

Absolutely amazing end to the show … Randy Orton is the best character in this thread … and maybe in BTB overall. All of his promos have been amazing and you seem to impress everyone with his weekly promos. Opening Raw and closing SD! was an awesome way to truly get him over as the best superstar in the company. Much of the same that we heard on Raw but this time Shane comes down to the ring. Orton showing all the footage and saying that Shane was alone lit a fire under McMahon … and he takes it to Orton!! Orton ends up getting the best of the exchange … AND PUNTS SHANE IN THE HEAD! A great way to end the awesome build for WM22.

I say this every time … but you get better with each and every show. I thought that what Batista did to Edge would have ended the show in a great way … but then you do one better and have Orton cut another amazing promo. I will for sure be giving you predictions and also reading/reviewing WM22. Great job man, you are one of the elite. 10/10.

SmackDown Review

Tremendous opening promo to kick things off, definitely the proper way to kick off your return, and the final show before WrestleMania. Naitch was fine on his own, getting hyped up and crazy in his usual Flair manner, but once Layfield came out, it expectedly went to another level. I think this is the first time in a long while that Flair and Layfield have been able to go at one another one on one on the mic. SNME was sorta like that, but other parties were involved. This was mano-a-mano and it perfectly laid out the problems each had with the other, and what both have to gain from picking up the duke. A handshake would’ve been a stupid finish, considering the personal nature of the feud, which is why the poke to the eyes was so fitting. Epic start to the show. Flair just can’t lose at Mania to Layfield though. Just … can’t.

Like the concept to fill up three match slots and get everybody in MITB on the card tonight with these matches interbrand. KK and Chavo? Nice continuation of the NWO deal, and even better to see Kennedy pick up the win. He’s still the favorite to pick up the victory, but I still kinda expect a swerve of sorts.

Interview between Kash and Noble reminded me of the one I did between Mickie and Vickie before my Mania. Oh my god, Kash was epic in this segment. Just arrogance (and delusion really) personified. Of course, Jamie gets his bad-ass moment, but it wasn’t enough to overshadow K.I.D. Suplex Boy? OWNED.

Helms got bitched out by Finlay. The Irishman had him beat before he lost his cool, which cost him the duke. Not sure if that was the intention but I thought young Gregory looked a little bit weak, though he got a bit of heat back in the end…

Even though Burchill is English, it just strikes me as odd to hear him say sunshine with this gruff and rough personality that you've given him in this thread. LOVE the fact that Regal was too smart to accept Melina's proposal for a pact. Really strikes me as the intelligence someone like Regal would have.

Leopard-skin coat?? EPIC. I was honestly a bit shocked by the way this segment came together. I remember that Booker was stating that Mysterio didn't belong, but I didn't think that it was getting to him. Maybe I just missed something, probably on the last show. BT was completely awesome in this segment, and he seems to be taking on some of the characteristics of his 'King Booker' character. On the way? Entirely possible. Unique way to show a feud heading into a WrestleMania (usually we'd get the big Rey revival, before the event). Props for your diversity, sir.

The match and aftermath seemed to be a bit of a vehicle for the greatness that is MNM, which is fine with me, after they effectively should've lost their tag team titles a couple weeks in a row. It's a shame that their reign may be coming to an end, because I think you've really begun to tap into the team as a tandem. Another reign after it ends at WM plz.

As PatMan alluded to, I guess you scrapped the Undertaker-Heyman match that was set up for tonight. Got a bit brawl-heavy on the show didn't ya? That's my guess at least. This was probably even more effective as Taker and Lashley have traded enough blows until Mania. Stellar segment here, very reminiscent of the videos Taker did in the leadup to his RR match in this thread. Not much to say except that I'm praying for a Lashley win.

Boy, oh boy, young Matthew continues to smell like a million bucks this week. No shocker to see Masters and Carlito portrayed as a couple of dopes before the Hardy win, and if KK doesn't manage to take it, Hardy definitely will.

Quick, effective promo from Edge, adding a bit of hype to SD's WM main event. Gotta expect Edge to take the belt from Big Dave since he's cashing in the MITB. Should be interesting, however.

As for the main event, quite possibly Slick Ric's last television match, it definitely accomplished all it needed to. The Nature Boy got a chance to look quite formidable (and got the visual win) against the top heel on the SD roster, before he heads into WM against #2 or 3, and Edge got his win. The WM hype only picked up from there with the epicness that is the awesomeness of Big Dave. Vicious stuff from Batista, which pretty much guarantees that he'll be losing the belt at WM. Still nice to see the top face get his retribution after the attack of last week. Kinda wished this was the main event, but we'll see what Orton has in store.

Strong Orton promo to finish the show. I don't think it topped the beating of Edge by Big Dave, but it was still strong enough to close the go-home edition of SD. Randy was ... his ... typical ... slow and cold self. Good move to not have Shane-O say much, and an even better one to have Orton eventually win out on their quick little brawl. Shows that the young cub of the McMahon club is still very much undermanned against Orton no matter how much heart he has. The Punt~ was just gravy for me.

I don't think the go-home show before WrestleMania could've gone off any better. Hot promo to kick things off, a few strong matches, matches that needed a bit of extra hype got more time on the mic, a couple of hot angles, and a strong finish. WM is gonna be epic.

Much thanks to Pat and Mac for the feedback. I guess I'm paying the price for my numerous absences now though

Good news though; WrestleMania is done and dusted. Yep, no kidding, I actualy managed to finished something. It should have been up months ago, so I'm not surprised to see the fuss and hype having, uh, disappeared, but nevermind eh? Should still be good I hope.

I'll be posting an "official" preview of sorts {inspired by Mac's wonderful concept} a bit before the actual event, but as for the PPV itself; WrestleMania 22 should be posted this Sunday September 7th. I won't bother saying a specific time, since you're all Yanks anyway, but hey, not your fault.

But, with that out of the way, by all means, leave your predictions

WWE Championship; Triple Threat Match:
'The Wrestling Machine' Kurt Angle © vs.
'The Heartbreak Kid' Shawn Michaels vs.
2006 Royal Rumble Winner 'The Doctor of Thuganomics' John Cena

This is a very tough match to pick but I see Angle retaining. Cena won the RR but the fact that he was gone for so long after the assault by Michaels makes me think that he isn't "built up" enough to win. HBK and Cena do their own thing after WM22, while Angle keeps the belt and gets a new feud.


World Heavyweight Championship Match:
World Heavyweight Champion ’The Animal’ Batista vs.
Mr. Money in the Bank ’The Rated R Superstar’ Edge w/Lita

After the assault by Batista on SD!, it will be very tough for Edge NOT to win. Batista has held the belt for a whole year and Edge wouldn't hold MITB this long only to lose. Rated R somehow gets the win, probably by using some shady tactics.

Street Fight; Unfinished Business:
'The Whole Dam Show' Rob Van Dam vs. 'The Game' Triple H

This is another match that could go either way but RVD needs the win and I see him getting it. Should be ECW-style brutal, imo.

One On One:
'The Phenom' The Undertaker vs. 'The Real Deal' Bobby Lashley

Lashley has been pushed amazingly ... but this is 'Taker at 'Mania. Should be an awesome match but the result will never be in doubt.

The Nature Boy vs. The Wrestling God:
Ric Flair vs. John Bradshaw Layfield
{If Ric Flair loses, he must retire}

The best feud promo-wise should be a pretty good match, but not anywhere close to MOTN. Flair isn't done yet and JBL got the upperhand on SD!. Naitch to get a main event push after this win plz.

Legend vs. Legend Killer; No Holds Barred Match:
Shane McMahon vs. 'The Legend Killer' Randy Orton
{If Shane loses, the McMahon Family must leave the WWE forever}

Probably the absolute toughest match to pick on the entire card. The storyline is "all or nothing" for both men and seeing either RKO without another title shot or the McMahons gone forever would be strange. Some kinda swerve goes down and Randy gets the victory.

---

United States Championship Match:
Booker T © w/Sharmell vs. Rey Mysterio

Rey hasn't looked good at all heading into the "biggest match of his career" but he will get the duke in this one. Booker should be in the main event scene after this feud is over. His character has owned the past few weeks.


Money In The Bank Ladder Match:
Chavo Guerrero vs. Matt Hardy vs. Gregory Helms vs. Finlay vs. Carlito vs. Mr. Kennedy

Hardy has been built the most but I think you know where the charisma is. KK would be the easiest to transition into the World Title scene and no one on Raw really stands a good chance. Matt could easily win this but I think you have made him look TOO good to get the win here.

Cruiserweight Championship Match:
'The Notorious K.I.D' Kid Kash © vs. 'The Pitbull' Jamie Noble

Kash has held the belt for a very long time ... it's Noble chance to reign supreme.

World Tag Team Championship Match; WGTT Reunite:
The Spirit Squad © vs. World's Greatest Tag Team
{Benjamin's Intercontinental title is not on the line}

The SS are awesome and they should stay together a little longer but I see Haas and Benji holding onto the belts for a little while before they lose them and feud with each other.

WWE Tag Team Championship; Three-Team Elimination Match:
MNM © w/Melina vs. The Hooligans vs. The Bluebloods

This match should be at least twenty minutes and the feud is ALMOST as good as the one Mac has going between Hooligans and the CC. Any team could get the win but the Hooligans have been going for the belts for too long.

Women's Championship Match:
Trish Stratus © vs. Victoria
{Mickie James as Special Guest Referee}

Just a way to push Mickie/Trish back a month. Stratus wins and then heads into her long awaited feud with Mickie.

Wildcard Questions

1) What Match Will Open The Show?? Three-Team Elimination Match for the WWE Tag Titles

2) What will be the biggest shock of the night?? Someone will help Randy Orton get rid of the McMahons. Just have a feeling.

3) What will be the match of the night?? Triple Threat Match for the WWE Title

4) How many shock appearances (if any) will there be?? Maybe someone during Orton/Shane.

5) How many titles will change hands?? Four

6) Who will be involved in the biggest spot of the night, and if you have an idea, what will the spot be?? Green Bay Plunge from KK to Finlay off the top of the ladder. Finlay would be the only guy tough enough to take that bump, imo.

Legend ... you know I will be reviewing. A very detailed review coming your way. Will try and get it up by the 14th.

I'm split on Cena and Michaels, I think it'll be seen just because of the hype surrounding whether he'd be involved in the match or not. Angle will drop for mine, although it would be a nice surprise to see him retain.


World Heavyweight Championship Match:
World Heavyweight Champion ’The Animal’ Batista vs.
Mr. Money in the Bank ’The Rated R Superstar’ Edge w/Lita

You wouldn't waste MITB, Edge is winning. No doubt about it.


Street Fight; Unfinished Business:
'The Whole Dam Show' Rob Van Dam vs. 'The Game' Triple H


I think you're trying to establish RVD as a Main Eventer, the build towards this match has definitely been towards RVD going over at 'Mania in my mind. Would be a damn shame if Hunter wins. If Van Dam wins, there's still so much more you could do with this feud in my opinion.


One On One:
'The Phenom' The Undertaker vs. 'The Real Deal' Bobby Lashley


Meh. I'd love it if you shocked me and Lashley won. I've enjoyed the build to this match.


The Nature Boy vs. The Wrestling God:
Ric Flair vs. John Bradshaw Layfield

{If Ric Flair loses, he must retire}

I think this'll be the "shock" moment of the PPV and Bradshaw will go over. This match could be big things for JBL.


Legend vs. Legend Killer; No Holds Barred Match:
Shane McMahon vs. 'The Legend Killer' Randy Orton

{If Shane loses, the McMahon Family must leave the WWE forever}

I'd mark if Orton wins.

United States Championship Match:
Booker T ©
w/Sharmell vs. Rey Mysterio

I'm not sure about this one. I don't think you're much of a Mysterio fan, so I wouldn't be shocked at all to see you keep the strap on Booker.


Money In The Bank Ladder Match:
Chavo Guerrero vs. Matt Hardy vs. Gregory Helms vs. Finlay vs. Carlito vs. Mr. Kennedy


This one's a two horse race. Kennedy or Hardy. Good to see you giving some slightly lesser established stars a chance here.


Cruiserweight Championship Match:
'The Notorious K.I.D' Kid Kash © vs. 'The Pitbull' Jamie Noble


This feud has been brilliant. If this match doesn't go at least 20 minutes I'll be disappointed. Noble for the win imo.


World Tag Team Championship Match; WGTT Reunite:
The Spirit Squad © vs. World's Greatest Tag Team

{Benjamin's Intercontinental title is not on the line}

I hate the Spirit Squad. I like this thing you're doing with Haas and Shelton, so I'd like to see where you go with it if you put the belts on them.


WWE Tag Team Championship; Three-Team Elimination Match:
MNM ©
w/Melina vs. The Hooligans vs. The Bluebloods

I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Bluebloods get the win. I think the positioning on the card will dictate the winner here. If it's up first The Hooligans will win, I think it'll be the opener.


Women's Championship Match:
Trish Stratus © vs. Victoria

{Mickie James as Special Guest Referee}

Trish is hot. Vickie is not. The end.

Pre-WrestleMania Sunday Night Heat 22-Man Battle Royal
Winners Gets Intercontinental/US Title Shot After WrestleMania

Matt Striker, Val Venis, Viscera, Chris Masters, Eugene, Gene Snitsky, Lance Cade, Trevor Murdoch, Doug Basham, Danny Basham & The Big Show
w/Paul Bearer
Juventud Guerrera, Psicosis, Super Crazy, Steven Richards, Nunzio, Scotty Too Hotty, Hardcore Holly, Simon Dean, Mike Mizanin, James Dick & Orlando Jordan w/Jillian Hall


The only person in this match with slightly an ounce of credibility must win. You probably could've squeezed Show into MITB somewhere. That would've made it different.

Wildcard Questions

1) What Match Will Open The Show?? Triple Threat Tag.

2) What will be the biggest shock of the night?? Flair retirement.

3) What will be the match of the night?? Noble v Kash if it goes over 20. I think you'll pull out the straps with that. RVD v Hunter should be a top match too.

4) How many shock appearances (if any) will there be?? Probably 1 or 2

5) How many titles will change hands?? 5 or 6

6) Who will be involved in the biggest spot of the night, and if you have an idea, what will the spot be?? It'll either be Shane doing something mental. Or RVD doing something mental from a great height to Triple Haitch.

BTW, winner gets EITHER 10 Million points OR the chance to book a match on my next show.

Well. I know I haven't commented much lately, but I've been reading. I still love it. I've been looking forward to this show for an AGE. Please inform me when it's posted. I'll definitely drop some comments, but hopefully it'll be a full review. Looks great mate, I can't wait. PPV of the year right here for mine.
