Re: Being The Booker

Smackdown Feedback

Angle vs Jericho shall own. Anyway on to the actual show.

MVP gets a big win over two very capable competitors I am extremely glad with this result. Lashley and Batista would have probably started fighting with each other and what not but still a win like this could only mean good for MVP’s career while Tista/Lashley thing continues to tick.

Kane… Kurt Angle…Undertaker just let me say that SuperBrawl match is going to kick ass…

Edge gets what well was an uncontested win. No it was not a squash but was Edge ever in doubt? A bit of aggression from Edge never hurt nobody either so good work mate. Nice mic work by Edge to typical whining and complaining it is going to be so great once he becomes champion.

Batista and Lashley have another confrontation and I thought they were going to come to blows for a minute however obviously they didn’t. Albright just chiming in with a smart ass comment was good and he was lucky he got out of dodge to be honest.

Mad Murdoch Twins … for the wins LOL Well not really but I like them more than Cryme Tyme.

The Hardy Boyz back together is good however I can not see it lasting to long. I can see you in the end going through what everyone else does and that is having a Jeff Hardy/Matt Hardy feud would be pretty fun.

Nice RVD interview and RVD being more composed is well in character since he is the laid back cool guy. I would love to see the pressure get to RVD and have him become a more extreme individual. Or perhaps once he loses the title anyway he seems to be above Edge at the moment but I don’t like how RVD is over looking Jericho.

Kid Kash and Chavo Guerrero are both awesome talents… Kash getting the win is good continuing his momentum ever since winning the Cruiserweight Championship. Hopefully Kash has a lengthy reign.

Kurt Angle showing off some intensity is nice. Him and Taker is going to be awesome when it happens and well I guess this is where we see the good bookers from the inexperienced ones. Good bookers let the situation progress where as inexperienced bookers would book the match straight away

Carlito gets an interview and then gets a good win for himself. As for Noble and Haas they could both do so much better then jobbing like this.

Next week is looking pretty sexeh… it is quite obvious that Arn Anderson knows what he is doing.

18 minutes??? Would have been an epic match. Jericho gets a big win here and even if it is by DQ its still a huge win. Aftermath was nice with both Edge and Undertaker getting involved and leaving a hurting on their opponents.

Overall a good Smackdown mate I found it to be quite entertaining. Sorry the review was a bit shitty but I just got so many to get through. I think I got my points across anyway, I will see you for Raw Wolfstar (trying something different, tbh)

Re: Being The Booker

Couple of points to make quickly;
- There was only really six matches on Raw, the seventh was the tag title match that never happened. I get the point though and the concerns raised. You wont be seeing too many seven match Raws.

- Regal is a face at this moment in time, not a heel.

- Cenas contract is no longer on the line. It was only when he faced Lesnar to get the shot.


(No rumours this week, but a few bits)


Over this past weekend, another huge match has been added to the SuperBrawl card; Tyson Tomko vs The 2007 Royal Rumble winner Christian ... In an I QUIT MATCH. The two former friends will do battle next Saturday night on the first ever Saturday PPV in WWE history, following Tomkos brutal assault on his former friend last week in England, joining the McMahon Family Empire. And, at the request of Tomko, Eric Bischoff has made this an I Quit Match. Can Tomko actually force Captain Charisma to mutter the words ... I Quit??
Christian is still in hospital in the United Kingdom, but he has promised to defy the doctors orders and return in time for SuperBrawl to gain revenge on the man who turned his back on him last week.

Meanwhile, Shannon Moore has been released from his Smackdown contract. The WWE family wishes him well in his future endeavours.


Raw Preview:

After a blistering tour of the United Kingdom last week, the superstars of Raw have landed back in the United States, and the road to WrestleMania continues in earnest in Albany this Monday night.

With SuperBrawl looming this coming Saturday, could this be the last time Triple H walks into Raw as World Heavyweight Champion?? He defends his title this Saturday in a 60 minute Iron Man Match against his long term adversary, John Cena. Triple H has promised to address John Cena and his choice of match for SuperBrawl on Raw. What will the ten times world champion have to say ahead of his final battle with Cena??

Whilst Triple H will be doing the talking, John Cena will be in action, as he takes on Triple H's soon to be (for the second time) brother-in-law, Shane McMahon. Will Cena send his own message to The Game through Shane?? Or have the McMahon Family Empire got an ace up their sleeve??

Meanwhile, last weeks 'Ace' saw Tyson Tomko dump his long time friend, Christian and join the McMahon Family Empire. This week, we will find out what drove Tomko to turn his back on his friend, and link up with the bitter enemies of Captain Charisma. Christian is still in hospital in England, but he will return on Saturday for the I Quit Match at SuperBrawl.

It will be take two for the World Tag Team Championship Match this week, following the postponment in England after MNM came down with 'food poisoning'. However, the jury is out on the legitimacy of that illness, after the tag team champions were able to later help Melina retain her womens title against Alexis Laree. Straight Edge though, didnt allow MNM to get away unscathed, getting a piece of Nitro and Mercury last week. This week in Albany, MNM must face the music, and finally go one on one with Helms and Punk.

Finally, Mick Foley, after months of uncertainty will reveal his motives behind his actions. What has gotten into the Hardcore Legend?? And what is his real reasons for targeting The Heart Break Kid, Shawn Michaels. Why did he screw Michaels at the Survivor Series, and why did he help to eliminate The Showstopper from the Royal Rumble?? Finally, the answers will be revealed on Raw.

Last week, Umaga became the first man on Raw to qualify for the second Money in the Bank ladder match. M.V.P on Smackdown became the second qualifier, and this week on Raw either the veteran Finlay, or the second generation rookie, DH Smith will join them. Will youth overcome experience?? Or will the veteran brush aside the youngster??

And, with the first ever Super-Brawl this Saturday, Smackdowns Kane will make a rare appearance on Raw, taking on the leader of the New Wave, Randy Orton. Both men will be part of the six man multi elimination match this coming weekend, and this match will be a great morale booster for the winner.

Confirmed Matches;
John Cena vs Shane McMahon
Finlay vs DH Smith
Randy Orton vs Kane


Raw up ... TOMORROW!!!!!!

Re: Being The Booker

Change of plan, chances are I wont be on tomorrow, so Raw is brought forward to tonight...

Raw; January 29th; Albany:

Opening Video


Jim Ross: We are back in the United States, right in the heart of New York, and just five days away from SuperBrawl!!! Raw is on the air, and the Road to WrestleMania continues in Albany tonight!!


The fans instantly are angered, as the music of Triple H plays, and the World Champion leads out the McMahon Family Empire with an added member … TYSON TOMKO.
Tomko has a completely new look to fit with the rest of the Family Empire, decked out in a three piece suit, as Shane excitedly pats the Problem Solver on the back.

Jim Ross: I’d like to say pick out the turncoat, but I guess all of these people on your screen right now would fall under that category. Last week, Tyson Tomko sold himself out to the McMahons, turning his back on his friend … his former friend, Christian.

The Coach: And it’s the best decision he ever made J.R!!!

Jim Ross: He may think it is Coach. He may be wearing the dear suits and picking up a fatter pay cheque, but money cant buy you a conscience, that’s for damn sure. Tyson Tomko will live to regret what he did last week.

The Coach: I don’t think so J.R. Tomko is made now. He’s untouchable.

Jim Ross: Well, we’ll see just how untouchable Tomko is come Saturday, because we found out this past weekend, that at SuperBrawl, Christian will face Tyson Tomko, one on one, in an I Quit Match. That one, could be very interesting.

In the ring, Stephanie holds the mic, holding one finger up, hoping for a brief moment to speak first.

Stephanie McMahon: In a moment, I’m going to let the men take over and talk business, but first … I just want to remind all the women, in fact, everyone, that next week … NEXT WEEK, on Raw, a special three hour edition of Raw I might add, you can tune in and see the most talked about wedding of the year, as I, Stephanie McMahon, will once again become … MRS Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley.

Heat for Stephanie, taking the smile off her face, but Stephanie continues to stay firm, and keeps talking.

Stephanie McMahon: When I marry THIS man … the love of my life … the World Heavyweight Champion … Triple H!!!

Stephanie smiles, and hugs The Game, passing the mic on to him.

Triple H: That’s right Steph … the World Heavyweight Champion. And this time next week, when we get married, I’ll still be the World Champion.

Heat from the fans, as they hug again, with The Game passing the mic to Vince.

Mr. McMahon: Until then though, there is some business to be taking care of here. And first on our agenda this evening … well, why don’t we welcome Tyson Tomko to the McMahon Family Empire, huh??

More boos from the fans, as Tomko steps forward, shaking hands with Vince, Shane, Triple H, then kisses Stephanie on the cheek. The fans meanwhile, greet Tomko with a ‘You Sold Out’ chant.

Mr. McMahon: And I’m going to give my future son in law the credit on this one, because he was the one who had the vision, he was the one that pointed this man out … The Problem Solver, Tyson Tomko as a man we needed on the side of the McMahon Family, and not one we needed against it.

Triple H steps forward again, and takes the mic for a moment.

Triple H: Thank you. Tyson, I’ve saw what you have to offer. I know what you’ll bring to the table. What we have here, is serious back up. Tomko is someone who we’ll be able to rely on, and he’ll get the job done, so from now on, we don’t need to rely on the likes of Brock Lesnar. We’-

LOUD, albeit, mixed reaction from the fans for the pure mention of Lesnar. Triple H is stopped for a moment, but composes himself for a moment … and continues.

Triple H: We’ve got the Problem Solver right here. Quite frankly Tyson, I‘m surprised you put up with it for so long. You’ve been wasted for two years carrying Christians jock, being his lackey, the butt of his jokes. With us, you wont be the punch line anymore. And you get to prove it at SuperBrawl this Saturday night.

The McMahons nod in the background, as The Game continues.

Triple H: You get to show Christian who’s boss. This is your shot to gain some redemption … to get a measure of revenge for being made out to be some sort of lumbering fool. At SuperBrawl WHEN you make Christian utter the words, I Quit, the entire world will sit up and take notice, that you, Tyson Tomko … are a force.

The Game gets right in Tomkos face, getting him fired up, before passing the mic to him. Tomko steps forward … to a mountain of abuse.

Tyson Tomko: CHRISTIAN!!! It’s just as well that you’re still stuck in a hospital bed in England, because if you were here tonight, I don’t think you’d make it to SuperBrawl this weekend.

Heat for Tomko.

Tyson Tomko: But, right now, it’d only be right to thank Triple H & Mister McMahon … Shane and Stephanie too, for helping me see the light. Thank you for helping me see just what a schmuck I was, following after Christian week in, week out. I promise … I wont let you down.

Tomko looks back and nods, before continuing.

Tyson Tomko: On Saturday, I’m going to take out all my pent up aggression on Christian … and I’m gonna make him surrender to me … I’m gonna make him quit. YOU HEAR ME CHRISTIAN??? I WILL MAKE YOU QUIT!!!

Heat from the fans, as Tomko slams the mic down. Vince steps forward now, nodding in agreement, before asking for another mic from Lillian.

Mr. McMahon: That’s the kind of thing I’d like to hear.

McMahon fixes the buttons on his jacket, as he soaks up some heat from the fans momentarily.

Mr. McMahon: Now, Christian, I want you to sit up … just for a moment … in that hospital bed while you try to recover from the concussion you suffered last week … at the hands of OUR Problem Solver.

Heat from the fans.

Mr. McMahon: Christian, let me warn you now. THIS is your future. THIS is what you’re up against from now until WrestleMania. SuperBrawl is only the start of it. Your life is about to become a living hell here on Raw.

McMahon waits for a response from the fans, whilst we hear Stephanie repeating her fathers words “a living hell” and nodding in agreement.

Mr. McMahon: So buckle up, and get ready … it’ll be an extremely bumpy ride. And to prove that point … in two Saturdays time, we will see the return of Saturday Nights Main Event. And Christian, you’ll be in action … tag team action. Christian, you’re going to be teaming up with your friend … and ours of course, John Cena…

Pop for the mention of Cena

Mr. McMahon: And the pair of you will face … Triple H, Tyson Tomko, my son Shane, myself … and why not … BROCK LESNAR!!! 5 on 2!!!

Triple H suddenly looks a little unhappy, not keen on the addition of Brock Lesnar, whilst the fans boo the announcement of the handicap match.

Mr. McMahon: Like I said Christian … buckle up.

More heat, as McMahon passes the mic to Shane.

Shane McMahon: And as for you John Cena, tonight, you’ve got yourself a tune up match for SuperBrawl. So … well done for saving Christian last week. But … how do you plan on saving yourself tonight … when you face me!!!

Heat from the fans.

Shane McMahon: That’s right, you’re going one on one with Shane-O Mac!!! And tonight?? Tonight is just the start, come SuperBrawl, you’re out of our lives, and after Triple H brushes you aside, you’ve got NOTHING!!!

Shane gives the fans a moment to voice their displeasure, whilst he looks at his family members, nodding in agreement, with Vince heard stating ‘Amen to that’.

Shane McMahon: Basically, you shoulda took my pops offer two weeks ago, when he handed you a ringside ticket for WrestleMania, because it’s about as close to the main event you’ll EVER get!!!

Shane bounces up and down a bit, as Triple H walks up behind him, putting his arm around Shane, with the smiling McMahon passing the mic off to The Game.

Triple H: Now, that’s not to say I’m looking past John Cena this weekend. I mean, I’ve got to beat Cena in a Sixty Minute Iron Man Match.

Cheers for the mention of Cena. Triple H looks around to his family members, and raises an eyebrow slightly at his own statement.

Triple H: Because … that’ll be difficult, right?? I mean, Cena is a guy that’s made a living on his wrestling ability, and his endurance of course, and that “will” to go that extra mile when the tank is at empty … but … that’s not John Cena at all, is it??

Triple H looks around, and shrugs.

Triple H: No. That doesn’t describe Cena at all. John Cena has never been praised for his technical ability. He’s all impact, he cant pace himself thirty minutes, let alone pace himself for sixty.

Triple H again shrugs, knowing there isn’t a real argument for what he is saying.

Triple H: I mean, what’s the longest John Cena has ever went in the ring?? Twenty Five, maybe Thirty minutes?? He doesn’t know what it’s like to really go. Cena, you are about to enter a world you cant even begin to imagine. This isn’t like any other match. This is the biggest test of your stamina, your skill, your endurance, and your will to win.

Heat from the fans, who start up a ‘CENA’ chant.

Triple H: You hear that John?? That’s the fans chanting your name. Surely that will spur you on at SuperBrawl?? … Wrong!! They cant help you this time kid, you’ll find out the hard way Cena. When it comes down to it, when we’re fifty minutes deep, and you’re caught in a sleeper hold, or a figure four, or just getting your ass beat … you’ll hear those chants … and they wont make a difference.

Heat from the fans.

Triple H: You wont be able to feed off their support. It’s all on you, and you alone to deliver. It’ll come down to pure ability … and I win every time, hands down.

The Game fixes the belt onto his shoulder again.

Triple H: Your body is gonna be spent, and you wont be able to do a damn thing about it. Y’see, in your desperation Cena … in your desperation to prove … hell, I don’t know what it is you‘re tryin to prove. But what you’ve done … I’d call it career suicide my friend.

Triple H shakes his head, and removes his sunglasses.

Triple H: You’ve picked a match that you think you know … but you don’t have a clue. What will you do after thirty minutes?? When your muscles start to tighten … when your legs start to wobble, and your body burns all over?? I’ll tell ya shall I?? … you’re gonna fold.

HHH moves towards the camera to speak.

Triple H: For ten minutes, you’re gonna come out all guns blazing. You’ll think you’re on top of the world … next ten minutes … you’re gonna hang on, but you’re gonna feel me get stronger. By thirty minutes … you’re gonna be out of gas, and no chances to refill the tank, and I’ll continue to get stronger. After forty … you’re gonna wish it was over. You’ll be trailing behind, playing catch up with a guy that still has twenty minutes in the tank. And for the last twenty minutes, I’ll toy with ya, I’ll play around, and I WILL embarrass you. You’re gonna reach down into the well, and look to find another gear, and you’ll find you don’t have it. Kid, you’re gonna find yourself WAYYY out of your depth, and I’ll be there to punish you, I promise you that.

More heat for The Game.

Triple H: And you will be punished on Saturday. Because Cena, I’m sick of your face. I’m sick of seeing your face, every single week, in my way, blocking my path to WrestleMania. So on Saturday, I’m not giving you a chance for excuses. This Saturday, you’ll get the very, VERY best of Triple H, one on one.

Pop from the fans, happy to see a genuine one on one match.

Triple H: No tricks, no surprises, you’ll get me one on one this Saturday, and you’ll pay the price, for the longest hour of your career. I promise you that. You’re gonna pay for pissing me off. You’re gonna pay for having the audacity to challenge me to a sixty minute Iron Man Match. In fact, now that I mention it again … I’ve never been so insulted in my life.

‘Asshole’ chant starts

Triple H: The fact that you must actually think you’re in my league to take me on in this kind of match insults me … that’s why I’m taking you on alone … that’s why I wont just beat you … I wont just embarrass you Cena … I’m going to take away all the credibility you have.

Heat from the fans.

Triple H: You hear the fans chant your name tonight?? Make the most of it, because when they see how pathetic you are this Saturday, when I expose you as a flash in the pan, an over rated hype machine, and only in the position you’re in, with chance after chance, solely on the basis that you sell t-shirts … they will disown you.

The Game soaks up the disdain from the fans.

Triple H: They’ll move on, they’ll forget John Cena like a flash, and they’ll move onto the next guy, and the next guy, and the next guy, as they all fall … and bow at my feet.

More heat for The Game.

Triple H: What is it you say John?? You fear nothing … and regret less?? Believe me, come SuperBrawl, you may not fear anything … but you should. And after sixty minutes, you WILL regret EVERYTHING. This is it for you Cena … end of the road … game over.

The camera pans out, as we fade for a commercial.


The same invitation from last week is shown, inviting us all to join Triple H & Stephanie as they marry, next week on Raw.

We return, at ringside with J.R & Coach, as Finlay waits in the ring for his opponent.


DH Smith enters to a generous response from the fans.

Jim Ross: Well, this is surely a huge opportunity for the young man, second generations superstar, DH Smith. He’s had a couple of losses recently, but tonight, has the opportunity, should he get past Finlay, to compete at the biggest event in the wrestling calendar, WrestleMania!!! One of these two men will join Umaga and MVP from Smackdown in this years Money in the Bank ladder match!!! Also tonight, Straight Edge will get their title shot that they should have had last week, when MNM pulled out with food poisoning, and lets not even get started on their miraculous recovery to save Melinas title.

The Coach: Don’t start J.R!!!

Jim Ross: Not only that, but as we heard before the commercial, John Cena will have a chance to get his hands on Shane McMahon, and ahead of this Saturdays Super Brawl match, Kane from Smackdown will be here, and tonight, he faces Randy Orton, one on one!!! But Kane isn’t the only guest tonight Coach, as we are also expecting an appearance from our former General Manager, Mick Foley. Will we get the answers we have been looking for?? I certainly hope so!!!

Finlay vs. DH Smith
Smith gives a good account of himself against Finlay, but eventually finds himself out of his depth, with Finlay too crafty, too wily, and too resourceful for the rookie, proving too much for Smith to handle, and eventually gets the job done with the Celtic Cross for the clean, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Finlay @ 04:51

Finlay has his arm raised, and looks pleased with himself, as he now gets a spot secured at WrestleMania, in the 8 Man Money in the Bank ladder match.

Jim Ross: And now we know three of the eight men set to compete in the second ever Money in the Bank ladder match. Finlay joins Umaga and M.V.P. Five more will be decided in the coming weeks.

The Coach: And it’ll be hard to stop that man. A wily old veteran J.R. Finlay may not be the best suited for a ladder match, but you can bet your bottom dollar he’ll have a gameplan to get the job done.

Backstage, we see Straight Edge preparing for their rearranged World Tag Team Title shot, and now make their way down the hallway, as the Raw music kicks in and J.R starts hyping this match coming up next … when Eric Bischoff stops Punk and Helms in their tracks…

Eric Bischoff: Gentlemen. I’m glad I caught you just in time. Your tag team title match is off.

Punk and Helms look at each other, with a smile on their faces, more to do with disbelief rather than finding anything funny.

Eric Bischoff: MNM’s doctor has just informed me that Mercury has chickenpox.

Straight Edge let out a sudden laugh, still unable to believe what they are hearing.

CM Punk: Chickenpox?? And you bought that??

Gregory Helms: Don’t you think this is a little convenient Eric?? Last week food poisoning … which was BS … now Chickenpox?? Wassup wit dat??

Bischoff looks a little angered by the protests, as he responds.

Eric Bischoff: I’m not stupid, okay?? I know they faked it last week, and for that … I apologise. This week though, a reputable doctor has confirmed Mercurys condition.

Straight Edge still don’t seem impressed.

CM Punk: I find that hard to believe Eric.

Eric Bischoff: Really?? Well you’re just gonna have to swallow it. Doctor Marella has told me with good authority that Mercury cant compete tonight … but Nitro can … so instead of tonights tag team match … it’ll be Nitro, one on one, with CM Punk.

CM Punk: And OUR title shot??

Eric Bischoff: Next week … I promise.

Bischoff turns from the two men, and begins to walk away, when he is approached by Kelly Kelly.

Kelly Kelly: Mister Bischoff??

Bischoff gives Kelly a glare that says “Don’t waste my time”

Kelly Kelly: Mister Bischoff, just moments ago, we heard Mister McMahon announce the main event for Saturday Nights Main Event in less than two weeks. But, I thought Mrs McMahon had ordered that you had sole responsibility over all matches on Raw?? Surely you wouldn’t allow a 5 on 2 handicap match??

Bischoff rolls his eyes.

Eric Bischoff: No Kelly, you’re wrong … again. I did sanction the 5 on 2 handicap match at Saturday Nights Main Event, and I don’t have to explain myself to you. Now, if you’ll excuse me…

Bischoff then walks off, but hears as Kelly mumbles under his breath.

Kelly Kelly: Hmm, I guess the guys that said you’re in Mister McMahons pocket are right.

Bischoff stops, and turns, making his way to Kelly again.

Eric Bischoff: I’ll pretend I didn’t hear that Kelly. This once.

Eric turns, and walks off again, with Kelly looking concerned in the background.


Backstage, we see Jillian Hall and Stephanie McMahon conversing…

Jillian Hall: Flowers are sorted, the dress fitting is on Wednesday. We have to have the run through on Monday afternoon though, but everything is fine.

Stephanie nods, and smiles.

Stephanie McMahon: This is great Jillian. You’ve been wonderful. Now, what about Michelle Williams?? My Dad said she’d promised to sing at the wedding.

Halls smile fades, and she turns her nose up a little.

Jillian Hall: Yeah. Miss perfect Destiny’s Child is showing up. Y’know Steph, I just don’t know if she has the class for this wedding.

Stephanie looks at Hall, then bursts into laughter.

Stephanie McMahon: That’s a good one, you almost had me there. Just make sure you confirm her, okay??

Stephanie then walks off, sipping her coffee, whilst Jillian looks a little unhappy about the situation. What’s her beef with Michelle Williams?? {Hmmmmm??}

We return with Randy Orton sat in a studio.

Randy Orton: For three straight years, I’ve been a part of the Raw main event at WrestleMania. At WrestleMania 20, I fell just short of becoming the youngest world heavyweight champion in history, when I took on Shawn Michaels in a ladder match. That was a learning curve. By the time WrestleMania 21 came around, I WAS the youngest World Heavyweight Champion, and I took part in the youngest main event in WrestleMania history when I faced John Cena … and lost.

Orton sits back in the chair, still visibly angered by the loss.

Randy Orton: And by the time last years WrestleMania rolled around, I thought it was time for redemption. I challenged Cena this time … and lost again.

Orton sits forward again, getting nearer to the camera.

Randy Orton: Three WrestleMania appearances, three championship matches, three defeats. This, I thought, was gonna be my year. But yet, here I am … no title match this year, and no way into one either. So what now?? I’ve never been involved in anything other than a world title match at WrestleMania, where do you go from there, huh??

Orton smiles a little, before speaking again.

Randy Orton: It’s a good question … and I plan on it being my decision this Saturday, when I win the Super Brawl, when I beat Brock Lesnar, Kurt Angle, Kane, The Undertaker … and Shawn Michaels … most of all … Shawn Michaels.

Orton grins widely, as the picture fades out, back to the arena…

2nd Match:
Johnny Nitro w/ Melina vs. CM Punk w/ Gregory Helms
Punk takes it to Nitro, taking out his aggression on one half of the tag team champions, having had their rightful title shot taken away from them for the second week running. Nitro tries to weather the storm, and looks to wear Punk down, but the plan doesn’t work for long with Punk feeding off his anger, and gets Nitro into position for the Punk Card … when Melina jumps on the apron!!!

Punk hit’s the move, then looks to confront Melina, but before he can … Helms races around the ring … AND PULLS MELINAS SKIRT DOWN!!! Melina jumps off the apron, and desperately tries to cover up her underwear, but as Punk turns back around … MERCURY IS THERE … AND BLASTS HIM WITH THE TAG TEAM TITLE BELT!!! The referee sees it, and instantly calls for the bell, ending the match.
Winner: CM Punk via DQ @ 05:00

Helms is straight in the ring, and tackles down Mercury, but Melina follows, and pulls Helms by the hair, getting him off Mercury. Helms gets up, and sets himself to hit Melina, but stops short, WHICH ALLOWS HER TO KICK HIM IN THE NUTS!!! Mercury follows up, and nails Helms with a spin kick, as Nitro is now back on his feet, with Melina directing traffic, with MNM dragging CM Punk up … BUT ALEXIS LAREE SPRINTS DOWN THE AISLE … and attacks Melina!!!
Alexis and Melina roll to the outside, and the commotion distracts Nitro and Mercury, which allows Punk to recover, and beats the two men off for as long as he can, until Helms is back up to join him, with Straight Edge now beating MNM, eventually sending them over the top rope to the floor!!!

On the outside, MNM now try to drag Alexis from Melina, but as they do, Laree grabs a jug of water from the announce table, and throws it in Mercurys face!!! Punk & Helms now come to Larees aide, with MNM running off like a pack of scalded dogs up the ramp.

Straight Edge and Alexis now take a stand in the ring, watching MNM hightail, and a camera zooms in Mercurys face, as it appears the water has washed off the chickenpox!!! Mercury has red lines on his face that now look like washed pen marks, rather than chickenpox!!! MNM get out of dodge, whilst Straight Edge and Alexis still look livid in the ring.

Jim Ross: One day Coach, one day, MNM will get their comeuppance, and I promise ya, it wont be a moment too soon. How many times can MNM dodge the bullets, how many times can they pull the wool over Eric Bischoffs eyes??

The Coach: What do you mean?? A reputable doctor advised our General Manager that Mercury shouldn’t compete. Mercury came out here to support his friends, and he should be praised!!!

Jim Ross: I’d love to meet that doctor, that’s for sure. Reputable my ass. What’ll be the excuse next week?? Huh?? Will they forget their lucky trunks?? One of these days Coach, MNM will pay the price. Folks, when we come back, Randy Orton will go one on one with Smackdowns Kane, in a preview ahead of Saturdays Superbrawl, don’t miss it.



A video now plays, with a young man, and young woman in a car, kissing. The woman pulls away for a second.

Woman: Wait, wait.

The man looks upset, as the woman pulls away from him.

Man: What’s wrong??

Woman: It’s just … it’s my first time.

The man smiles, before reassuring the woman, whilst stroking her arm.

Man: It’s okay … it’s my first time too.

The woman now smiles, then looks inquisitive.

Woman: Really?? Well, have you got them??

Man: Yeah, they’re right here.

The man pulls his wallet out, seemingly to pull out a condom, and off camera the woman catches a glimpse of it.

Woman: Okay … I’m ready.

The camera now shows what the man pulled from his wallet … two WrestleMania 23 tickets.

Man: Alright. WrestleMania, here we come!!

They share a quick kiss, and exit the vehicle, as they walk away, holding hands … towards the New Orleans Superdome …

The video then ends with a big WrestleMania 23 logo … FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN NEW ORLEANS … AND YOU NEVER FORGET YOUR FIRST TIME.


3rd Match:
Randy Orton vs. Kane
Clunky match, which never hits any great heights, as both men appear to stay in second gear throughout, and go through the motions. Kane is made to look strong, but in the end, Orton is a worthy winner, having the better of the match, and gets a sudden finish, just as it appeared Kane was coming back, nailing an RKO as Kane lined up the Chokeslam. Orton hooks the leg, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Randy Orton @ 05:16

Orton picks up a good win, and sets himself up nicely for this Saturdays Super Brawl, where the winner picks his own WrestleMania match.

Jim Ross: You heard from him earlier folks, Randy Orton has his eyes set on his own destiny, and should he win the six man Super Brawl on Pay Per View this Saturday, he will have his WrestleMania destiny in his own hands.

The Coach: It sounds to me J.R that Orton knows exactly what he wants to do at WrestleMania, and the only way he can guarantee it, is by winning the Super Brawl on Saturday night.

Jim Ross: That is this weekend, but still to come tonight, Silver Spooned Shane takes on the #1 Contender, John Cena, five days before Cena goes head to head with Triple H for sixty minutes in the Iron Man match. That’s the main event tonight, but before that…

Suddenly, the camera shifts to the parking lot, where a yellow taxi pulls up … and out steps the unmistakable Mick Foley!!!

Jim Ross: Well there he is. Ladies and Gentlemen, will we finally get some concrete answers from that man, Mick Foley about his recent actions?? He’s on his way to the ring right now, don’t miss it, when we return.


We return with a video package for SATURDAY NIGHTS MAIN EVENT … FEBRUARY 10TH!!!

Back into the arena…


Mick Foley enters the arena to a lukewarm response, with the fans uncertain how to take the Hardcore Legend these days. He waves to the fans, offering a thumbs up, as we see him carrying his new book to the ring. He rolls inside, and picks up a mic, left for him in the ring, as the music dies down.

Mick Foley: Y’know, it’s great to be back … right here … in Albany!!!

Cheap pop, but plenty of boos filter in.

Mick Foley: And I just want to say to everyone that my new book, The Hardcore Diaries, is set to hit the bookshe-


Foley isn’t given a minute to talk, as Shawn Michaels storms right down the aisle, determined to get answers from Foley!! Mick holds his hands up innocently as HBK steps inside, not wanting any trouble, with Michaels looking ready to snap. The music dies down, and HBK is given a mic, but Foley speaks up first.

Mick Foley: I know why you’re here Shawn. To be honest, I’m a little upset you saw fit to come charging down here. I just wanted a few moments to plug my new book, and then, I was going to get to my explanation.

Foley looks to Michaels innocently, but HBK seems consumed with rage.

Shawn Michaels: Yeah, that’s very nice Mick. Problem being, this isn’t a book club, and I havent got the patience. I don’t care about your latest masterpiece in the literary world, I just want some damn answers. So Mick, lets not beat it around the bush here. Why?? Why screw me at the Survivor Series … then do the same at the Royal Rumble??

The fans pick up a little, as Michaels stares at Foley, desperately seeking answers.

Mick Foley: Okay, that’s how you want it. That’s fine. First off Shawn, I already explained myself for the Survivor Series incident. I set myself a goal last summer, and that was to rejuvenate the WWE … set off another boom in wrestling. The first experiment, was the Boogeyman. Shawn, I thought I had unearthed a modern day Hulk Hogan. And I’ll hold my hands up and admit … I was wrong on that one.

Few chuckles from the fans, but some boos too, with HBK looking on at Foley, still stoney faced.

Mick Foley: So I moved on, and tried experiment number two … create controversy, water cooler moments, keep things unpredictable, much like the attitude era. An era that you Shawn Michaels kick started, when you screwed Bret Hart, at the Survivor Series, in his home country.

Heat for Michaels on that point.

Mick Foley: So how could I let an opportunity pass me by like the one that presented me at the Survivor Series … in your home state of Texas, to screw you out of the World Title.

Heat for Foley.

Mick Foley: That’s the type of thing that creates controversy. That’s the type of thing that people stand around the water cooler talking about in work the next day.

More heat from the fans.

Mick Foley: Nothing personal Shawn, like I told you in November … just business. I’m trying to do the best thing for the WWE. I thought you of all people would understand what I’m trying to achieve.

Foley looks to HBK for some sort of reaction, but HBK has that blank, vacant look, staring through Foley.

Mick Foley: Now though, I realise you didn’t appreciate it, and I fully understand why you kicked me in the face the following night. I’m … sorry.

Foley pulls the mic down, and holds his hand out, offering a handshake to HBK. Michaels though, ignores the offer, and speaks instead.

Shawn Michaels: What about the Royal Rumble?? That wasn’t in Texas, why screw me again??

The fans interest starts to peak again, with HBK bringing up an interesting question. Foley this time, actually smiles.

Mick Foley: You got me there Shawn … kinda. I mean, you weren’t my target in Indianapolis. THAT was my target at the Royal Rumble.

Foley points to the WrestleMania 23 logo hanging high above in the rafters.

Mick Foley: My goal that night, was purely selfish. I wanted to give the world the biggest shock in the history of the Royal Rumble. More shocking than Mister McMahon himself winning the Royal Rumble. I entered the Royal Rumble with the objective of winning … and headlining WrestleMania 23.

The fans give a small pop for Foley.

Mick Foley: I’d done everything in my career … sure, I already main evented WrestleMania … but I didn’t feel like I earned that one. This time, I wanted to do it the right way, win the Rumble, and go to the big dance. Can you imagine it Shawn?? It would’ve been the most talked about title match in WrestleMania history, the biggest comeback in the history of this sport. RATINGS … TALKING POINTS!!! A BOOM!!!

Michaels stays silent, allowing Foley to continue.

Mick Foley: So … I’ll admit, you eliminating me within a minute … it got me mad. I lost my cool after that, and yes, I deliberately screwed you … out of spite.

Heat from the fans.

Mick Foley: I’m not proud of myself for that Shawn. I’m extremely disappointed in myself. And Shawn, all I can do … is offer my sincere apologies.

Small pop from the fans, as Foley extends his hand once again. Michaels still looks angry, but this time, decides to accept the handshake. The two shake for a moment, as Foley brings the mic back to his mouth.

Mick Foley: I really am sorry Shawn. I’m sorry for what I did to you, I’m sorry for letting the fans down … but most of all … I’m sorry that I cant put up this charade any longer, because I cant stand what I’ve become. I cant stand what I see in the mirror anymore … I’ve become nothing more … than a deceitful son of a bitch.

Michaels looks at Foley, confused at the last comment … then suddenly … FOLEY NAILS MICHAELS WITH THE MICROPHONE!!!!! Foley backs HBK against the ropes, and blasts him again and again with the mic, drawing blood, finally knocking Michaels down!!!

Foley now pulls out Mr. Socko, with the fans booing the Hardcore Legend, whilst J.R is in shock at the actions of Foley. Mick shoves the sock in Michaels mouth, and applies the MANDIBLE CLAW!!! HBK falls to his knees, and soon passes out from the pressure of the claw!!! Foley gets back up, and drops the sock on HBK, before running his fingers through his hair, as he picks the mic back up.


Foley slams the mic back down, and gestures to the fans the ‘BANG BANG’ salute, sticking his tongue out between the gap, where his two front teeth should be.

Jim Ross: I just cannot understand this Coach. Did Mick Foley just lead Michaels up the garden path with a list of lies?? What the hell is going through that mans mind?? What is going on with Mick Foley??

The Coach: I’m stumped. Foleys behaviour is just off the wall. I’m starting to think he’s been hit over the head one too many times. Foley to put it simply … has lost it.

Jim Ross: What have you done Mick?? What the hell have you done??


We return back at ringside with J.R & Coach.

Jim Ross: Ladies and gentlemen, I am still in shock, having just witnessed Mick Foley, a man I have called a personal friend, a man I admire greatly, cheap shot Shawn Michaels in the middle of the ring. Again Coach, I have to raise the question, what is going through that mans mind??

The Coach: By the looks of it J.R, there’s a lot of empty space. That’s what.

Jim Ross: We are no further to finding out Mick Foleys real motives for the actions he has carried out in recent months. Just when we thought we had gotten to the bottom of Foleys intentions, because from the sound of things, The Hardcore Legend has led us all up the garden path.

The Coach: The man needs help J.R. I mean real help. Mick Foley has issues, and they need addressed by a professional.

Jim Ross: For once Coach … I actually have to agree with you.

4th Match:
Rey Mysterio, Booker T & Elijah Burke vs. Mister Kennedy, Shelton Benjamin & Mark Henry w/ Theodore Long
Quick fire six man match, with plenty of history between Mysterio & his three opponents tonight, whilst Booker & Burke have a storied history with The Brotherhood too. After the fast paced start, things slow down as the heel team wear down Burke. This carries on through a commercial, and we rejoin with Burke trying to fight a bear hug in the hands of Mark Henry. Elijah starts to fight it, with the fans firmly behind him, stirring him on, and he eventually breaks the grip of The Worlds Strongest Man, but as he runs off the ropes … Theodore trips his leg!!!

This forces the match to implode, as Rey and Booker come to the aide of the rookie, and all hell breaks loose. In the midst of the carnage, Rey becomes the legal man for his team, tagging in from Burke. Rey and Booker get Henry to themselves, and whip him off the ropes {as Kennedy makes a blind tag}, and team up to get him into the ropes, allowing Rey to hit the 619 on Henry, with Booker following up with a Scissors Kick!!! Mysterio jumps to the ropes, and finishes Henry off by Dropping the Dime … but the referee refuses to count as Henry is not the legal man!!!

During this period, Booker has now left the ring to help Burke as he takes on both Long & Benjamin, whilst Kennedy slips into the ring to take Rey by surprise … AND DELIVERS THE MIC CHECK!!! He hooks the leg, 1...2...3!!!

Winners: Mr. Kennedy, Shelton Benjamin & Mark Henry @ 08:03

Kennedy picks up a well devised win, outsmarting the Intercontinental Champion tonight!!! The much more straight laced Mister Kennedy bounces right back up to his feet, with an expressionless look on his face as his hand is raised, before showing a grim smile, with the new attitude looking to be paying off.

Jim Ross: We have witnessed Coach in recent weeks, one of the most startling, and sudden transformations that I can recall. Mister Kennedy has metamorphosed from a cocky, loudmouth, to a ruthless machine, intent solely on victory.

The Coach: I don’t think anyone has ever flicked the switch as quick as Kennedy has. He came to the realisation that if he was to prosper on Raw, and fulfil his goals, he had to develop a straight ahead approach. No messing around, no playing games, no crowd pandering. Kennedy is now focused, as you said, solely on victory, and J.R, you cannot deny it’s working.

We cut backstage, to Todd Grisham…

Todd Grisham: Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome The Iron Man, Brock Lesnar.

Mixed response, as Lesnar enters the picture.

Todd Grisham: This weekend Brock, at the SuperBrawl, you are one of six men competing in the SuperBrawl match, with a big incentive for the winner … as he will have the opportunity to name his own opponent at WrestleMania. My question to you Brock, is if you win … who will you face at WrestleMania??

Brock Lesnar: Who will I face at WrestleMania?? Todd, there is only one name that springs to mind for me, and that’s John Cena.

Pop for the mention of Cena.

Brock Lesnar: And it’s quite simple as to why, Todd. Two weeks straight, Cena has got my blood boiling. First, the night after Royal Rumble, he started to bitch and moan about getting screwed over, and missing out on his WrestleMania main event dream ticket. Seriously?? Did Cena forget to see what I did for over sixty minutes at the Royal Rumble?? And he has the gall to complain??

Lesnar looks at Grisham, as if he is waiting for an answer. Brock though, continues before Todd says anything.

Brock Lesnar: As for last week?? Heck, just call me a bad loser Todd. I especially don’t like losing to a whiny bitch, like Cena.

Heat for Lesnar.

Brock Lesnar: So for me, it’s a no brainer. What better, than to slap the taste out of John Cenas mouth in front of 70,000 Cena fans on the grandest stage of all??

Todd Grisham: Having said that Brock, is there a second option, should John Cena recapture the World Championship on Saturday??

Lesnar stops in his tracks, and thinks for a moment about the question. He looks down, then back up with a smile on his face, before speaking.

Brock Lesnar: I guess Triple H will be free then won’t he??

Brock pats Todd on the shoulder, before walking off, leaving a question mark in the air, should he win his match at SuperBrawl.




Backstage, Eric Bischoff is waiting, as Mister Kennedy approaches…

Eric Bischoff: Just the man I wanted to see.

Kennedy stops at Eric, pulling off his elbow pads as he listens.

Eric Bischoff: Last week, I instructed you Ken, to go out to that ring, and annihilate DH Smith in front of his own people. And boy, did you pass that test.

Kennedy immediately interrupts.

Mr. Kennedy: I didn’t do it because you told me Eric, naw, naw, naw. I beat Smith from pillar to post, because … I can.

Eric Bischoff: Well, be that as it may, I was seriously impressed with how you just beat Rey Mysterio tonight. And as a result, I’ve rewarded you Ken. This Saturday at Superbrawl, you’ll have a chance to do that again, only this time … the Intercontinental Championship will be up for grabs.

Kennedy nods, liking the announcement. Eric, beaming, then continues.

Eric Bischoff: You pleased with that??

Kennedy thinks for a moment, then shakes his head. He walks past Bischoff, then turns, walking backward a little as he replies to the question.

Mister Kennedy: I’m not happy Eric, and I’ll not be happy until I have the Intercontinental Championship this weekend.

Kennedy turns, and walks on, whilst Bischoff shakes his head, disgruntled that his favour hasn’t been welcomed with open arms.

We return with a highlights package on Tyson Tomko turning on Christian last week, leading to their ‘I Quit’ match being announced for SuperBrawl.


Tyson Tomko enters the arena, to a chorus of boos, as Snitsky waits for him in the ring.

Jim Ross: And there Coach, is the man who last week, turned his back on his best friend at the drop of a hat.

The Coach: I think it’s called ruthless aggression J.R.

Jim Ross: It’s called selling out Coach. Tomko proved last week he isn’t a true friend. He sold himself out to the highest bidder, and he deserves everything that’s coming to him on Saturday night.

5th Match:
Tyson Tomko vs. Gene Snitsky
Squash win for Tomko to look impressive ahead of his biggest ever singles match this weekend. He dominates the similar sized Snitsky with ease, finishing off the big man with a big boot to the face grabbing the 1...2...3!!!
Winners: Tyson Tomko @ 03:18

Tomko has his hand raised, and quickly pulls away, looking to the hard camera, and mouthing a message to Christian that “It’s payback this Saturday”.

Jim Ross: I cannot wait Coach, I cannot wait to see Captain Charisma get his hands on that man, Tyson Tomko, this Saturday, and boy, will he get what he deserves!!!

The Coach: And I can’t wait for that man, Tyson Tomko to get his hands around the scrawny neck of Christian!!! And he’ll get what he deserves!!!

Jim Ross: Well, one of us is gonna be happy then come SuperBrawl. Either Tyson Tomko or Christian is gonna have to utter the words … I Quit.

The Coach: This Saturday J.R, I’ll be happy.

Jim Ross: It will be this Saturday, but still to come tonight, our main event, John Cena, five days from his sixty minute Iron Man Match against the best in the business, Triple H, meets Shane McMahon one on one, don’t go away!!!


We return at ringside now, with J.R and Coach set to shill for a few moments…

Jim Ross: Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to Monday Night Raw, and we are bracing ourselves for a fortnight of huge show after huge show. Starting this Saturday night, in a WWE first, we will present a Pay Per View spectacular like no one else can, with the SuperBrawl in Providence, Rhode Island. Then, this day next week, Monday Night Raw emanates from Chicago, starting one hour earlier than usual for a three hour special which will feature the remarriage of Stephanie McMahon and the current -for now at least- World Heavyweight Champion, Triple H. And, a week on Saturday, it is the return of Saturday Nights Main Event on NBC!!! And we found out earlier tonight that at Saturday Nights Main Event, John Cena and the Royal Rumble winner, Christian will team together, to battle the force of Triple H, Brock Lesnar, Tyson Tomko, and Vince & Shane McMahon!!!

The Coach: It’s a big line up for a big two weeks of WWE J.R, on the road to WrestleMania too!!!

Jim Ross: Indeed it is, and it starts on Saturday on Pay Per View, the final Pay Per View event before the Granddaddy of them all, WrestleMania Twenty Three. And the line up couldn’t be grander … this one could main event WrestleMania itself, John Cena with one final throw of the dice, one last chance, to become World Heavyweight Champion, challenges Triple H, in the most gruelling of all matches, the sixty minute Iron Man match!!!

The Coach: The Game has promised to go it alone this Saturday night, he has promised to make Cenas life hell this Saturday. The Game means business J.R, and it means bad news for John Cena. His dreams ends this Saturday.

Jim Ross: The winner of that match will go on to WrestleMania on March 18, to face the Royal Rumble winner, Christian, but in the mean time, Captain Charisma has his hands full with an I Quit match this weekend, against his former best friend, the man who turned his back on Christian last week, Tyson Tomko. It couldn’t get any more personal.

The Coach: You hit the nail on the head baby boy. This one is personal, and it’s gonna be ugly. If I were a fan of Christian, I wouldn’t be thinking ahead to WrestleMania … I’d be hoping he survives SuperBrawl!!!

Jim Ross: From Smackdown, Mr. Friday Night, Rob Van Dam will need to be at his best once more, as he faces yet another challenge for his WWE Championship. RVD has been able to fend off all kinds of obstacles, he’s had to fight the odds, this Saturday, he is one match away from going to WrestleMania!! Standing in his way though, is the desperate challenger, Chris Jericho!!! Which one of these two men will defend the title against Edge at the Showcase of the Immortals??

The Coach: Van Dam has beaten the odds time and time again. This Saturday, it’s an even playing field, but will his constant battling to hold the title have taken it’s toll by the time SuperBrawl, and Chris Jericho rolls around??

Jim Ross: And of course, the first ever Super Brawl. Six superstars, three from Raw, three from Smackdown, will do battle in five different matches, with one superstar departing after each fall, one will remain standing when it’s all said and done, and that man will hand pick his own opponent for WrestleMania in six weeks time. Brock Lesnar, Randy Orton, Shawn Michaels, Kane, Kurt Angle and The Undertaker!!! What a star studded line up!!!

The Coach: Six superstars, ALL former world champions, and what a prize for the winner, what an incentive. I cant wait for that one this Saturday.

Jim Ross: And of course, lets not forget, just added this evening, it’ll be a refocused Mister Kennedy, challenging Rey Mysterio for the Intercontinental Championship!!!

The Coach: And it’s a well deserved shot for Kennedy. You beat the champion, you’re entitled to a shot at the title.


John Cena gets the fans on their feet, as it’s main event time!!!

Jim Ross: Listen to the ovation!!! John Cena has brought this capacity crowd to their feet!!!

The Coach: He better enjoy the adulation tonight J.R, he better enjoy it, because after SuperBrawl, he’s gonna be yesterdays news this time next week!!!

Cena storms into the ring, and throws a ‘WORDLIFE’ symbol to the camera, throwing off his cap and shirt into the crowd, asking for a mic, wanting to say a few words before the match.

The fans drown him out at first, but eventually die down to allow him to speak.

John Cena: Alright … I’ve kept quiet long enough. Triple H.

Heat for the mere mention of The Game.

John Cena: Triple H, I heard everything you said earlier tonight, and if your aim was to make me angry … congratulations Game, it worked.

Small pop from the fans.

John Cena: H, at one point earlier y’even said that YOU’D never been more insulted in all your life, than having me challenge you to a sixty minute Iron Man Match.

Cena shows a small smirk, and shakes his head in amazement.

John Cena: That’s right, you said that. So, I guess we actually have something in common, because after what you said about me earlier … gotta say, I’ve never been so insulted in all my life either.

Small pop from the fans with Cena getting a little angered.

John Cena: Basically, you’ve come out here, and you’ve wrote me off. You came to this ring, and dismissed my challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship.

Cena smirks again, but not out of any happiness.

John Cena: Now, don’t get me wrong … I’m not tryin to say I’m Ric Flair or Bret Hart, heck I know I’m never gonna be the most gifted guy technically, you don’t need to tell me that Tripper. But to write me off?? Not cool homie.

Cena paces around, still smirking, but still not for any funny reasons.

John Cena: I’ve caused you enough problems for you to know that aint true. Twice we’ve met, and twice I’ve had you beat in the middle of the ring. Just because this time it’s a sixty minute Iron Man match, suddenly I’m a dead man walkin?? Suddenly I’m not up to it??

Fans give heat, as Cena shakes his head.

John Cena: All of a sudden Triple H, you’ve decided that I cant go for an hour?? What else did you call me?? Was it, all impact?? No substance … over rated … only here to sell merchandise, right??

More heat for The Games earlier comments.

John Cena: Man, if you REALLY think that … Trips, you’re in for the rudest damn awakening this Saturday. If you’re expecting me to run out of gas … if you’re hinging your game plan on me having nothing left in the second half … you better have a plan B.

Cheers now from the fans.

John Cena: Because I guarantee, I promise on Saturday night, I WILL keep comin forward … I’ll NEVER back down … and I’ll NEVER quit.

Big time pop.

John Cena: Break my arm … I’ll use the other one. Break my leg … I’ll HOP around this ring CHASIN, YO‘, ASS!!!

The fans get excited, as Cena gets himself amped up ahead of SuperBrawl.

John Cena: You can break my bones, you can break ‘em all … BUT YOU WILL NEVER … BREAK … MY … SPIRIT!!!

Pop from the fans, and a ‘Cena’ chant starts up.

John Cena: And trust me when I say it. I really do fear nothing … and I really do regret less. I don’t fear taking you on for sixty minutes, and I wont regret taking back what is rightfully mine, because I have to go to WrestleMania … I just … have to, regardless of what it‘ll take … I HAVE to be in that main event.

The ‘Cena’ chant continues.

John Cena: For sixty minutes this Saturday at SuperBrawl, I’m gonna be on yo ass, I’m gonna keep comin, from the first second, to the last minute, no wasted motion … this time around … you wont stop me … HELL … YOU CANT STOP ME!!!

Fans chanting reaches fever pitch.

John Cena: All my focus is on one thing, and one thing only H. That’s takin what rightfully belongs TO ME!!!

Cena looks to the fans, looking to draw on their support.

John Cena: And that is the WORLD … HEAVYWEIGHT … CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!

Huge cheer. Cena calms down, and waits for the fans to die down for him to speak again.

John Cena: I do though, agree with one thing Trips. This is the end of the road … and the game will indeed be over … … … for you …

Another big pop builds slowly, as Cena stands tall in the middle of the ring.


Cena stands, and looks around, listening to the fans support, with Cena looking at his intense best, now awaiting his opponent.



Shane McMahon enters to a decent heel reaction, flanked by Tomko & Triple H with Vince and Stephanie not appearing for this one.

Main Event:
John Cena vs. Shane McMahon w/ Tyson Tomko & Triple H
It’s barely a match, as Shane is a lamb to the slaughter, with Cena ripping McMahon apart. Both Tomko and HHH try to get involved, but the intensity of Cena scares both men off each time they make a leap to the apron. Cena is in control for almost all the match, bar a very brief spurt of offence from Shane which barely troubles Cena. The #1 Contender attempts to send a message to The Game at the end of the contest, nailing Shane with an FU, and makes a cover … 1...2...CENA PULLS SHANE UP HIMSELF!!!

Cena breaks the count, and locks eyes with The Game, telling him ‘that’s one’. He then climbs the turnbuckles, AND DELIVERS WITH A STUNNING LEG DROP ACROSS THE BACK AND NECK!!! He covers again, 1...2...AND AGAIN PULLS SHANE UP TO STOP THE COUNT!!! He makes eye contact again, telling HHH clearly ‘that’s two’. Cena then turns Shane over, keeping his eyes locked on Triple H the entire time, AS HE APPLIES THE STFU!!! Shane taps instantly, and the match is over!!!!!
Winner: John Cena @ 05:44

Cena has his hand raised, keeping his glare on the champion, mouthing to him ‘AND THAT’S THREE’. Triple H though, doesn’t look fazed, and smirks a little, making sure Cena sees him as he tells his adversary “BUT THAT ISNT ME”, pointing at Shane, making sure Cena knows it wont be as easy as it was tonight when it comes to SuperBrawl.

Re: Being The Booker

The Most Loyal Reader & Reviewer Drops By For A Mo

MY GOD. That was some promo, seemed like it would never end at one point
Still, good stuff from everybody, especially The Game. Tomko on the mic, boring. Christian's beating him, no matter what. Fuck Cena tbh, Lesnar/Triple H ftw. Liking Shane/Cena for tonight tho, Shane O Mac spots plz. As usual, everybody seemed themselves and while it was a long mahfucka of a promo, it was pretty damn good too (y)

Finlay > Jobber. Wasn't gonna happen any other way tbh. MITB being filled with people who cant produce high spots atm, not happy

@ Chickenpox tbh. Lame excuses and at this rate SE aren't gonna get their shot at MNM until Mania imo, or at the very least SNME. Not that it would be a bad thing, just for Punk/Helms it would

Kelly OWNS Bischoff. I marked. Kelly

Michelle Williams? The one that never showed skin? Beyonce > Kelly R > her > Jillian tho. Fuck Jillian is ugly, cut her off at the shoulders and she's good to look at tho.

Short and sweet Orton promo here, nothing really above average about it apart from that smirk after he emphasised beating HBK. Surely they can't continue to have a feud with Foley waiting for a spotfest with HBK at Mania?

bahahaha pen marks for chickenpox ay? Nice stuff here and Laree/Melina is still going on which is good, aslong as Melina doesn't beat Laree I'm happy coz while she's nowhere near as good as some make it out she is, Alexis is better than Melina in the ring

Kane getting beaten in 5 minutes ahead of the Superbrawl makes him look a little weak and makes me think he gets eliminated first in the match. Sad to see Kane, masked and a total badass, jobbing so quickly after the mammoth return build you had for him last year. Kane push plz <3

I gotta admit Foley was confusing the fuck outta me there by aplogizing to HBK and what not, blabbering on about the greatness of the ATTITUDE ERA!~ amongst other things. Marked for the official Foley heel turn tho, greatness, just like my Christian/Austin segment last week, the mic can be used to devastating effect
Good work here and I can't wait for these two to meet at Mania, they've GOT to imo, it's a must. Don't you dare do anything else!

Kennedy in MITB plz. Rey in MITB plz. Booker T to stop jobbing plz. Shelton in MITB plz. Make it happen? I love multi matches so seeing this one thrown on the card was good

Lesnar balancing face and heel atm, tweener roles are difficult depending on the superstar, but I remember when Lesnar faced The Rock at SS02, the crowd treated him as a tweener towards the end of the match anyways. He can pull it off and atm is looking good in the role, I'd mark for him to win the Superbrawl match and face Triple H because it kinda seems like you're building towards that, possibly with Cena in the mix too, which I can't say I'm a fan of, I hate seeing Cena near the title all the time

Rey/Kennedy sounds ok, Kennedy should prolly win it. Tomko/Snitsky, yuck. Next plz

Good Cena promo, in character and well delivered tbh. Still sick of seeing Cena near the title as the goody face, but I guess I'll have to live with it

Cena fucking Shane up, a little surprising considering Trips & Tomko were at ringside, but it makes Cena look strong going into Superbrawl next week

Re: Being The Booker

RAW Feedback:

{Btw Wolfy, I hope you don't hate me after this ; I'm just giving my honest opinion}

- First off, great to see you've put Tomko in a three-piece suit rather than his usual attire to fit in with the rest of the McMahon Family Empire. I didn't like Stephanie's opening line. Even if she is the only female of the group, she is (as she always says) "the most dominant female in the WWE" and this line made her look extremely inferior to the men, which is definitely not her character. I think it was a bad move to have Triple H call Tomko "Christian's lackey". I mean it's a negative either way. It's negative for Tomko because it makes him sound inferior, and it sounds bad for the McMahons because they've hired a lower card wrestler, a lackey, to their group rather than anyone else. Again, Tomko admitting he was a "schmuck" rather than saying something like "you held me back" makes him sound weak. Apart from those few things, in general, everyone was in character here.

- Again, like last time I can't comment on the match itself since it's in such short recap. However, Finlay in the MITB = good booking decision.

- Doctor Marella ey? Hmmmm, I wonder who that could be. I like how MNM keep ducking out of the titles matches, as it will definitely put Punk and Helms over once they finally win the titles. By the way, is there any chance you got the inspiration for this storyline from one of the Smackdown vs. Raw games? There's a very similiar storyline there.

- Like last time, I'm not too keen on this whole Jillian/Stephanie deal but I guess it's just more hype for the wedding next week.

- Orton's promo wasn't entirely in character. I don't know if you'll agree with me, but when you read over it again, you might see that the promo was very generic and could've been given to pretty much everyone. I think promos are crucial in showing what a character is, and this promo didn't really do that. I think you may go with the story that Orton's determination to focus on hurting Shawn Michaels will cost him the victory at SuperBrawl.

- @ the chickenpox washing off. I liked the aftermath of this match, and if not next week, we're sure to see a 6-Person Intergender match pitting MNM against Straight Edge and Laree soon. {Btw this is just personal preference, but Alexis Laree is an awful name. Mickie James plz }

- Now again, this is probably my personal preference, but what have you done with Kane? Yes I have no problem with Orton going over, and yes I have no problem with Kane losing, but does he have to be a complete jobber? I'm pretty sure you brought him back with the mask at WrestleMania right? I keep thinking about how well you played that moment out, and what you've done with the character since then. Why rejuvenate the character only for him to become a jobber again? Also, for Kane to be a part of the SuperBrawl match and lose to the heel Orton clean was a bad decision imo. You would want Kane looking like a viable threat rather than a filler guy (even if he is just that) heading into SuperBrawl, and I think interference from the New Wave or a roll-up win - something along those lines - would've been more appropriate here.

- I don't think Shawn Michaels would use the word "damn" for some reason; it just doesn't seem him. However the rest of this promo was gold, and this was definitely the segment of the night. Right now I think this Foley/Michaels deal is my favourite storyline going on RAW. I love that you're taking Foley's character back to the twisted, unstable wildcard that it should be.

- As soon as I saw Booker T's name I KNEW he wasn't winning this match. Anyway, it was nice to see Kennedy get the clean win over Rey. So far you've done well to convey this new, more aggressive Mr. Kennedy to the audience. I'll be paying attention to see if you can keep it up. A little suggestion: If Kennedy is stripping himself of all the traits that made him "Mister Kennedy, Kennedy", maybe he should go back to calling himself Ken Kennedy, or even Ken Anderson, as "Mister" Kennedy is the name that the fans can follow.

- Lesnar's promo was OK, and in fact, I preferred it to Orton's promo earlier. By the way, if the SuperBrawl winner can pick his own opponent for WrestleMania, technically couldn't he use it as a loophole and choose to face the world champion? Clear this up for me please.

- The Bischoff/Kennedy was OK. Nothing much to comment on here, but as I said earlier, you did a good job of playing out Kennedy's new gimmick by him being not satisified until he has gold. Even though Mysterio only just won the title, I wouldn't be surprised if you considered him a transitional champion, just so Kennedy could win the title from a face and not the heel Shelton Benjamin.

- Tomko/Snitsky = DUD, tbh. However I can see someone had to job to Tomko to have him look strong heading into SuperBrawl, so it might as well have been Snitsky.

- If the Foley/Michaels segment was the best two-man promo of the night, Cena's promo was beyond a shadow of a doubt the best one-man promo. It just blew everything else out of the water. The thing about this promo is that you did something that is very difficult to do through writing out a show, and that's to get the reader to genuinely dislike the character. This is the typical, "never back down" Cena that the smarks' dislike, and because the characterisation was perfect, I could visualise this promo and I felt like telling Cena to shut up. That's why this promo worked. I've been reading your shows ever since your comeback, and each and every RAW, it seems like you have Cena's character spot on compared to the rest of the roster. I'm guessing he's your favourite superstar to write for? If not, he's definitely the most well written character anyway.

- The Cena/Shane main-event was perfectly written in the sense that it achieved exactly what you needed it to achieve heading into SuperBrawl: make John Cena look as strong as possible. Since it's Shane O Mac, I have no problem with Cena completely demolishing him on his way to the PPV. JR's PPV sell was good as well, but not as good as DDMac's "cue JR's awesome PPV hard sell" before his SummerSlam PPV.

OVERALL: In general Wolfy, I think the show was OK. Some of the characters need to be written out better, and considering who you are, I know you can do better. That being said, the Cena promo and the Foley/Michaels segments were brilliant. The matches are difficult to comment on as they're in such short recap but that's your personal choice so I can't say much about that. I think certain wrestlers like Booker T and Kane should be utilised better, as the stronger they look, the bigger the win looks for the guys who beat them e.g. Randy Orton. Like I said at the beginning, I hope you don't think "Ah fuck you" after this feedback , but I'm just being honest with my opinions here. I will definitely be reading SuperBrawl.

Re: Being The Booker

Couple of points to pick up on just to clear things up;

- So far 3 out of 8 have been confirmed for MITB; plenty of time to add the 'spot monkeys' . Just have a little bit of patience

- That would be an accurate description of Michelle Williams. I thought she'd be a more realistic choice to appear, saying as she did the opening at WM 22 irl.

- Cena as the goody face stays. . Not a popular decision (not even from me) but it's an approach that I find works for me. There's enough people that portray an edgy, badass/tweener Cena. Not here.

- I dont hate you TKO. It'd be a worthless review if you didnt give your honest opinion. As it goes, I get where you're coming from in the protrayal of certain characters in the opening promo. The intention behind Stephanies promo was more down to her just being excited for 'her big day' next week. I agree though that it's against her character to come off as inferior to any men.

- With Tomko, I was more trying to give off the impression that he finally realised he was better than what he was doing, and that he's better than being a lackey.

- Cant disagree with the comments on the Orton promo. Definately was generic, but often, I find Orton as generic when he talks (not so much in recent months)

- Last time I played a wrestling game would've been SD vs Raw in 2005 (I think it might've been the first of the SD vs Raw series). More of the inspiration behind the illnesses was the old excuses Edge & Christian always used to get out of matches in 2000. The Marella thing ...

- As for Kane, I'll admit that I dropped the ball on making him relevant again upon his return last year. When I did his return angle, there were more plans to utilise him better, but for different reasons they fell through. All in all, Kane is one of those guys that I've never been able to get behind for a big push.

- It was stipulated when the Super-Brawl was first announced that the winner could chose his own opponent for WrestleMania, but not any title matches.

Thanks for the feedback gentlemen, hope I've cleared a few things up / explained why some things came off as they did.

Re: Being The Booker

Making Raw Pleasure on Your Face

-I really hope you don’t have the wedding crashed… I want to see it . Great call on having Trips build up Tomko instead of him doing his own speaking. Good call. Keep his talking limited like you did, albeit intense. I’m liking the mini-arc here with Lesnar too. Great future fued this will be. Triple H is making dig after dig at Brock, but Vince wants him to help them out. Keep planting the seeds… like you do inside of me. I like the SB and SNME hype in between, but despite how much I love Shane, I wasn’t a huge fan of his stuff with Cena. I like the booking of the match, but the promo/hype, tad off. Once Trips got the stick though and ran down the Iron Man and Cena’s ability, or lack thereof, to go sixty minutes… excellent. Seriously, the characterization and the intense run down was brilliant, Wolf. You take that promo and put it by itself, and it’s a contender for the best promo in the winter awards.

-I forgot all about Finlay existing IRL… what happened to him? I’d love to see you start pushing DH Smith, tbh; brother deserves it, for sho.

-I love the E&C like tag team stuff with MNM and the illnesses. Doctor Marella? You can’t fool me, loverbee, SANTINO TIME~! Classic angle here, just for the throwback to the E&C days of tag team glory.

-Rofl, Jillian wants to sing at the wedding, right? I would’ve brought in Barry Manilow or Rick Astley, tbh. RATINGS!

-Solid, short promo from Orton. I like how you brought him up, just to take him down. No DC like Jesus push plz. Orton/HBK II at WM? I dig that *****. Except for the whole Foley/HBK match that has to happen

-Lol, yes, epic. You knew Mercury was coming to interfere, and I like that it was just a DQ win for Punk instead of a cheap one for Nitro. I approve of that, tbh. It keeps Punk’s street cred up, and the aftermath was hilarious.

-My God, I fucking love these WM videos. It’s my first time… MER, BE GENTLE! Use it plz =]. This was epic gold, beats DC’s advertisement, tbh.

-Ouch to Kane. Losing in 5 minutes? You’re making my boo a bitch, and it kind of hurts. Ah well, at least Orton is looking strong, my man.

-I love Foley when you write him, tbh. The Boogeyman as the next Hulk Hogan? <3 you forever. I love the past booking with this feud though, recreating, almost, the Montreal Screwjob for HBK. Foley’s promo was excellent, that slow build up, explaining the plot, and then… the lead on. HBK thinks Foley wants peace, and the turn and beat down. Classically done, excellent segment.

-This match had me bored at first, tbh, but the ending won me over. The heel blind tag is not something I see enough in BTB anymore, and this, good sir, was very well done. The faces all think they have the victory, the crowd buys into it, and Kennedy says “FUCK YOU, BITCH!” I love it. This really is a prime example as to how/why you’re such a great booker. The simple things, tbh.

-I think Lesnar/Cena is an excellent match to have at Wrestlemania, and since you already have thrown this out there, I think it means Lesnar is not winning at SB now. Why spoil it, ya know? Lesnar/Cena is bound to happen because obviously he’s losing to Trips at SB, and there’s some bad blood between them. Again, that quick reference to Trips was great, and I love the slow build up to a feud between them.

-Kennedy/Misterio? Fair enough.. Simple filler tbh, but serves its purpose.

-Tomko squash. HOORAY! Really, not too much to say here

-I loved the commentator’s shill job. It wasn’t Don West kind of shilling, but damn good nonetheless. Not enough people can write solid, simple commtentating. My Wolfy can though <3

you don’t need to tell me that Tripper. But to write me off?? Not cool homie.
Never again, please

Once you got past the forced line, this promo flowed oh so smoothly, and was epic. It’s not a desire to win the title, it’s not a want, it’s a need. Cena needs that title to feel whole. You drove that point home perfectly, while showing his resiliency and will to compete. Seriously, excellent promo here. I wouldn’t put it above Trips’ from earlier in the night, but was definitely excellent.

-I find your take on the main event surprising, and refreshingly nice. You’d expect a longer affair, and interference from Triple H. I like Cena’s intensity just scaring them off and what have you. That was damn solid, and Shane is just picked apart. I don’t see many – if any – going this route the way you did, and again, applaud you. You go with what others don’t, and you do it effectively. Excellent booking, tbh.

-Overall, a TOP NOTCH show for stories heading into Superbrawl. No match had any importance or value to it, bar the main event. All the matches were placeholders, but the story was damn great. Triple H/Cena was in full hype, and you did so great making it the focal point of the show. Foley/HBK’s interaction was also great, and I can already tell, that you’re on your way to a beautifully built up Wrestlemania my dear.

Re: Being The Booker

Sorry to say, no time for a Smackdown preview, just straight on with the show. I might not be able to get on again until Saturday, so that's why it's going up now. I might get a preview up for SuperBrawl before the show, but maybe not, so predictions are welcome...

Smackdown; February 2nd; Buffalo:

Opening video.

Michael Cole & Tazz open the show, less than 24 hours from SuperBrawl, with a PPV quality main event tonight, with bitter rivals The Undertaker & Kurt Angle taking on the two men that collide for the WWE Championship tomorrow night, Chris Jericho, and the WWE Champion, RVD, with the winning team either gaining one spot in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match {if RVD & Y2J win}, or two spots {if Taker & Angle win}. Also announced is Batista in one on one action, against Chris Harris of AMW, with Batista & Lashley set to get a second crack at the champions tomorrow night for the tag titles {They lost the first time. WHY GET A REMATCH???}.

Edge defeats William Regal @ 11:02 in a No Disqualification Match. The show opens with the No Disqualification Match signed last week, pitting Mr. Money in the Bank Edge, against William Regal in a rematch from last week. Regal gives Edge a strong run for his money, using all his veteran instincts, troubling the Rated ‘R’ Superstar, but eventually coming up short, as Edge cleans Regals clock with the briefcase, then follows up with the Spear!!! Edge hooks the leg, 1...2...3!!! It’s a good win for Edge, to keep his momentum rolling into WrestleMania.

Backstage, AMW discuss their big opportunity tonight to make a real statement to the rest of Smackdown, by winning against a bona fide top tier singles wrestler, when Harris challenges Batista one on one, with the tag champions determined to prove they can be just as versatile as the Hardy Boys.

Elsewhere, Carlito and MVP collide, as Porters minders try to push Carlito out of MVP’s way to clear the hall for him to enter. Carlito refuses to move, and two trade verbal blows, before Porter laughs it off, then tells his men to find him a different route, not having time for small fish. As MVP walks off Carlito mumbles a response to the small fish comment, and yes, you guessed it, he says ‘Das not cool’.

Bobby Lashley defeats Brent Albright @ 07:29 in a competitive, NON TITLE contest. Albright gives Lashley plenty of troubles, but ultimately falls short, and is unable to kick out of a Dominator, giving Lashley a big win over the United States Champion, surely adding to his credentials for a crack at the champion!!!

The Rated ‘R’ Superstar then gets stopped in the halls … BY ARN ANDERSON. The General Manager warns Edge that his presence isn’t welcomed in tonights main event … and especially not at tomorrows PPV. Edge doesn’t take much in though, with an wankerish grin on his face, telling Anderson he’ll do what he wants. Anderson nods, telling Edge that’s fine … but warns Mr. Money in the Bank that if he decides to adopt that attitude, there will be consequences … SEVERE consequences. Double A leaves the final comment in the air, letting Edge mull it over, as we cut away.

Brian Kendrick, Super Crazy & Chavo Guerrero defeat Kid Kash & The Mad Murdochs @ 06:22, when Super Crazy pinned the Cruiserweight Champion, Kid Kash, with the triple moonsault. The faces stand tall in the middle of the ring, as Kash scarpers, but making sure he holds the belt aloft, reminding his would be challengers who the champion is.

Backstage, Kane gives a promo, talking about tomorrow nights Super Brawl, and talks about wanting to make a big impression on WrestleMania by picking his own match to create as much chaos as possible at the Granddaddy of ‘em all.

Now, Chris Jericho walks to the ring, to deliver a promo ahead of tomorrow nights title match. He talks about his missed opportunity at this exact spot last year, when he just barely missed out on the main event of WrestleMania. He talks about the emotions he went through after coming so close but falling short, and promises he wont fail a second time … not this year.
This promise brings out RVD from the back, to disagree. The champion tells Jericho that he’s never even come close to being part of a WrestleMania main event … until now, and he’s worked too long, fought too hard to just let the title slip from his grasp at this point. Van Dam apologises to Jericho, before telling him that simply put, the WWE Champion will still be R-V-D come SuperBrawl. The two come face to face … AS EDGE ENTERS THE FRAY!!!
Edge stands at the top of the entrance, and tells his two prospective opponents that they ought to stop bickering about who gets to LOSE at WrestleMania to him, and further rams home the point, stating again, that no matter the outcome tomorrow, he is the uncrowned champion, and there will be a new WWE Champion on March 18, and his name is EDGE!!! Edge doesn’t overstay his welcome, and leaves the stage on that bombshell, with Jericho and RVD now face to face in the ring.



Batista defeats Chris Harris @ 09:54 via the Batista Bomb to pick up a hard earned win. Harris is joined at ringside by Storm, and it looks towards the end that The Cowboy could well be the difference maker … until Batistas partner for tomorrows match shows up to even the scores, with Lashley chasing off Storm, allowing Batista to pick off Harris, finishing him with the Bomb, 1...2...3!!!
After the match, Batista and Lashley stand together in the ring, chucking the tag title belts to the outside, where Storm helps Harris out of the ring. Then, in the ring, Lashley and The Animal exchange words, pointing towards AMW, but Batista also seems to make it clear that he wants Brent Albright too, with faint audio being caught from what the two say, as Albrights name is mentioned a couple of times, as we fade out.

We now hear from Kurt Angle, as he talks up his partaking in the Super Brawl tomorrow night. He doesn’t give away who he’d choose to face at WrestleMania, but does heavily suggest it’d be The Undertaker, as he states “I’m not going to insult your intelligence … I think it’s obvious who I want at WrestleMania”.

Carlito & Paul London defeat Montel Vontavious Porter & Charlie Haas @ 08:37 when Porter walks out on his partner!!! He refuses a tag, and drops off the apron, claiming ‘I don’t need this’, leaving Haas for dead!!! It’s an easy win in the end for CCC & London, as Carlito hit’s the Back Cracker, and London follows up with the 450 Splash, allowing Carlito to cover, 1...2...3!!!

After a commercial, The Hardy Boys hit the stage. They make a short announcement, before saying they don’t like to waste a single moment, and prove it, by issuing an open challenge to whichever team leaves the SuperBrawl as tag champions, wanting the next crack at the titles!!!

Backstage, the forgotten Deuce & Domino look furious that the recently reformed Hardys have just pushed themselves straight to the front of the line in the hunt for the tag titles!!!

A video now plays, with a young man, and young woman in a car, kissing. The woman pulls away for a second.

Woman: Wait, wait.

The man looks upset, as the woman pulls away from him.

Man: What’s wrong??

Woman: It’s just … it’s my first time.

The man smiles, before reassuring the woman, whilst stroking her arm.

Man: It’s okay … it’s my first time too.

The woman now smiles, then looks inquisitive.

Woman: Really?? Well, have you got them??

Man: Yeah, they’re right here.

The man pulls his wallet out, seemingly to pull out a condom, and off camera the woman catches a glimpse of it.

Woman: Okay … I’m ready.

The camera now shows what the man pulled from his wallet … two WrestleMania 23 tickets.

Man: Alright. WrestleMania, here we come!!

They share a quick kiss, and exit the vehicle, as they walk away, holding hands … towards the New Orleans Superdome …

The video then ends with a big WrestleMania 23 logo … FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN NEW ORLEANS … AND YOU NEVER FORGET YOUR FIRST TIME.


In the main event, Chris Jericho & WWE Champion Rob Van Dam defeat Kurt Angle & The Undertaker @ 15:19, meaning the loser of RVD vs. Jericho tomorrow will join MVP, Umaga & Finlay in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match at WrestleMania. The finish comes as The Undertaker gains another measure of revenge on Angle for recent sneak attacks, by turning on his tag partner for the evening, delivering a thunderous Chokeslam, which allows Jericho to hit the Lionsault, and pick up the three count, for a big win ahead of his huge title opportunity tomorrow night.

After the match, Jericho picks up the WWE Championship, staring at it in his hands, smiling … before RVD pulls it away, and hauls it over his shoulder, pointing to the name on the belt, and points his thumbs, with the fans chanting along … “R.V.D”. The two men come head to head, talking trash, as the show goes off the air.
