WWE Superstars | October 3 2007

As ever, Todd Grisham & Jerry Lawler present the show, hyping tonight’s main event between the warring cruiserweight tandems of Los Latinos & Sonjay Dutt & Daivari in tag team action.

TNT w/Maryse open the show, defeating two local jobbers again @ 03:37, again hitting stereo big boots to win the match - although King is focused more on ogling Maryse on commentary.

Elijah Burke defeats Mike Knox @ 05:45 with the Elijah Express, bouncing back after his loss to MVP last week on Smackdown.

Harry Smith defeats Deuce w/Domino @ 04:23 in a match to help showcase the second generation star, as he gets set for his big PPV match with Burchill in a few weeks time.

In the main event, Sonjay Dutt & Daivari steal a win over Los Latinos @ 10:55, with Crazy crashing and burning on the outside, before Daivari tripped the leg of Chavo (going for a brain buster on Dutt) with Dutt landing on Guerrero, and Daivari holding the legs to stop Chavo from kicking out.

Friday Night Smackdown Preview:

Last week, Smackdown went off the air amidst chaos and confusion, as Batista - earlier in the night screwed - apparently - by The Undertaker - came for revenge, believing the WWE Championship match to be over, and delivered a punishing Spinebuster to The Phenom ... unaware that on the stage, Arn Anderson was in the process of restarting the title match after Orton intentionally got himself disqualified. In the end, Orton retained the gold, but not without controversy - and this Friday in Charlotte, Orton has vowed to call out the GM, furious with what he believes to be a continued vendetta against him. Just how far will Orton go tonight, should Anderson agree to meet him face to face in the ring??

And, how will The Undertaker and Batista react to the carnage of last Friday. Will The Undertaker now look to strike back in his ongoing issue with The Animal after being screwed out of the WWE Championship?? Will Batista even be sorry, despite his mistake?? Batista also has a match with MVP to deal with the Friday, as Arn Anderson gives Porter his request for higher - and bigger - competition. With MVP out to impress and prove a point, Batista could well have his hands full on Friday if he has his focus elsewhere.

After somehow escaping Detroit with the WWE Tag Team Titles in tact, AMW celebrate THREE HUNDRED days as champions this Friday - but given the way Harris and Storm kept the titles last week, will Americas Most Wanted even have anything to truly celebrate?? The Caribbean Connection will surely be furious to see AMW waltz into North Carolina with the title belts that they should be now holding - except for the untimely return of the Mad Murdoch Twins; Festus and Trevor, costing Carlito and Kofi the titles last week on Smackdown. Last month - in an act of self defence - Carlito knocked out Festus with the ring bell, but it appears that the Murdochs didnt take it lightly. Did they go too far in costing the pair title gold last week?? And, what kind of impact will they have this week on Smackdown, assuming they look for another piece of Carlito and Kofi, who face Elix Skipper and Kid Kash in tag team action.

Despite the huge show last week on Smackdown, Arn Anderson is pulling out all the stops again this week, with TWO huge main event matches. The first, a 2 out of 3 falls match between Jamie Noble and The Brian Kendrick for Kendricks title, which will bring an end to the rivalry that has bubbled throughout the summer. Twice already, Kendrick has managed to escape Nobles challenge and keep the gold, but this week, he'll need to score two falls to see off the dogged challenger. Many believe that Kendrick has been lucky to beat Noble twice, with questionable tactics used to keep his title, and they believe he'll be unable to do it twice in one match. Will Jamie Noble bring the curtain down on the longest title reign in the history of the Cruiserweight division??

And, in the second of the two main events, Shawn Michaels travels from Raw - with his first pick for Team Raw at the Survivor Series - to take on Brock Lesnars first Team Smackdown pick. With illustrious names such as Rey Mysterio, Matt Hardy, Kurt Angle and Shelton Benjamin to choose from on Raw, and the likes of Paul London, Garrison Cade, RVD and the undefeated Nick Nemeth over on Smackdown, it promises to be a huge interpromotional match when Raw and Smackdown collide this Friday. Tensions between Michaels and Lesnar almost boiled over on Raw, only for the two being kept apart. With both team captains expected to be in the corner of their picks on Smackdown, could HBK and the Iron Man give the fans a taste of what is to come in L.A next month??

Expect Smackdown up sometime over the weekend...

Friday Night Smackdown | October 5 2007 | Charlotte NC


Highlights package of last weeks main event, which saw Randy Orton overcome the challenge of The Undertaker … but with unintentional assistance from Batista, who lost his earlier match due to what appeared to be Undertaker parlour tricks…

Opening Video

Pyro

We go to ringside with Styles and Heyman, who talk about another action packed night on the new season of Smackdown, building off last weeks ‘incredible’ night, and they talk about what the fallout will be - as Randy Orton has promised to ‘deal with’ the GM, Arn Anderson, tonight.

Plus, one week on from falling short in his quest to win the U.S Title, The Brian Kendrick defends the Cruiserweight title in a 2/3 Falls match against Jamie Noble. In addition, Shawn Michaels & Brock Lesnars first picks for their Survivor Series teams will be unveiled and will meet in the main event tonight…

**I WALK ALONE**

Batista - to mostly boos - enters the arena looking dapper, fitted out in a tailored suit, acknowledging the boos, and seemingly accepting them. He walks to the ring, as the commentary team discuss the incidents last week again - plus Batista being in action tonight against M.V.P. The Animal has to wait out a lot of boos from the fans, and nods. Batista starts off, saying he expected that reaction, and immediately apologises for ruining the WWE Championship match last week - falsely believing the match was over.

He does not, however, apologise for his actions - which is boo’ed. He reminds the fans that while the timing was wrong, what he did was not, and The Undertaker deserved “that receipt” after the stunt he pulled, costing Batista his match earlier in the night, claiming that he lives by “an eye for an eye”. He accepts that the fans might not like to hear it, and if they don’t see things from his perspective “that‘s up to you … but I wont change my ideals for any man - dead or alive”.

The Animal waits out some more boos - sprinkled with some cheers - and speaks up again, saying that even though he has M.V.P tonight, his issue with ‘Taker has been bubbling for the last month or so, “and I‘m ready to put a pin it. Undertaker. I‘m sorry for costing you the WWE Title … but I still want a piece of you in this ring. I‘m callin you out!!” Now, the straight ahead approach does get a more popular response, with the fans keen to see The Animal & The Deadman lock horns …

**ROAD TO TEXAS**

But Batista gets his OTHER enemy - Garrison Cade. Cade saunters onto the stage, with a mic in hand, and looks rather sheepish and embarrassed. He umms and aaahs, on the mic, with Batista getting angered, shouting to Cade to “spill it” … as Cade finally speaks properly, saying he’s got something to admit and didn’t think what he did would’ve had the knock on affect it has … “but uh, I … I set up that stunt last week during our match. I paid off one of the guys in the production truck to hit the lights if I ever got into deep trouble during the match.”

Batista is INCENSED by the revelation - as he realises now that Taker was innocent … and HE screwed The Deadman - FOR NO REASON - at the end of last weeks show. The Animal boils over in the ring, lifting the mic to his mouth … but the rage inside him is so pent up, that he can only growl on the mic, before throwing it down … AND EXIT’S THE RING TO COME AFTER CADE!!! The Animal storms up the ramp for the Lone Star …

… WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT!!!!!

In the arena, the fans come alive, as The Phenom appears on the tron, making a cryptic message to Batista, telling The Animal that with his actions last week, he has “opened Pandoras Box”, and when the time is right, The Animal will feel the wrath of The Deadman. The image of Taker fades, the lights return, and we see Batista stood on the ramp, looking up at the tron - not scared. The camera fades out on Dave as we head to the first commercial of the evening.

Commercial Break

Match 1:
The Caribbean Connection vs. Elix Skipper & Kid Kash
With clips from the Murdochs return last week to cost Carlito & Kofi the tag team titles before the match, Heyman and Styles use a lot of the match to discuss the situation, reminding the fans how Carlito put Festus on the shelf in August - in an act of self defence - and assuming that the Murdochs have returned for revenge, with the previously comatose (prior to the ring bell) Festus seemingly cured upon his return last week. The match is little more than a showcase for the Connection, and whilst the opposition get in plenty of offence to make it a competitive match, they are eventually beaten by the superior team, with Kofi nailing Trouble in Paradise to Skipper to score the 1...2...3!!!
Winners: The Caribbean Connection @ 04:50

Carlito and Kofi bounce back, but after having their hands raised, Kofi spots the two brothers; Trevor and Festus, making their way through the crowd, looking to get their hands on the Caribbean pair again - but before they can climb over the barrier, they are cut off by security, which Styles reports has been stepped up by Anderson after what went down in the tag & WWE title matches last week.

The Murdochs are prevented from getting into the ring, but point to Carlito & Kofi, wanting to fight them, with Trevor heard challenging the pair “come meet us in the car park, pretty boys”, as he and his brother are backed up into the crowd by the security team. Carlito and Kofi remain in the ring, seemingly happy to accept the fight, talking about it between themselves as they watch the Murdochs being ushered from the crowd.



Backstage, we see the arrival of SHAWN MICHAELS to Smackdown, visiting from Raw as he gets set to introduce his first pick for Eric Bischoffs Team Raw at Survivor Series later tonight. He is welcomed by an excited Josh Mathews, and notes that HBK looks to be in better spirits tonight after he stormed out on Raw, with Michaels saying he’s had time to “cool off”, and shows off a big smile. Mathews then asks Shawn about who his first pick will be, but HBK raises his eyebrow, then playfully pats the head of Josh, before making a gesture, zipping his lips, and walks off - giving nothing away.



Elsewhere, we see THE BRIAN KENDRICK confidently walking down the hallway, with the longest reigning Cruiserweight champion in HISTORY set to defend the title - NEXT - in a two out of three falls match against Jamie Noble.

Commercial Break

Match 2 | WWE CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP | 2 OUT OF 3 FALLS:
The Brian Kendrick vs. Jamie Noble
Finally, the two go at it in a long, suspenseful match, after months of being ripped off for ring time. It’s Nobles THIRD and FINAL shot at the title, and after being cheated twice before, he is given the extra chance tonight, with Kendrick needing two falls to win. They start off slow with a lot of mat based wrestling, with Kendrick being out grappled initially, as Noble works the arm of the champion. Kendrick finally escapes the clutches of the challenger, and tries to speed things up, proving to be just too quick for the hungry challenger, catching him with an arm drag, and a second, and a third, forcing Noble to the corner to retreat.

Kendrick now starts to act up, strutting around the ring, mocking Ric Flair (in North Carolina) which gets roundly jeered by the fans. Kendrick shouts out “I do it better than he ever could!!” but wastes too much time mouthing with the locals, and allows Noble to spin him around, clocking him with a right hand!!! Noble softens up the champion with a hammering in the corner, stomping TBK down, and is pulled away by the official. Noble argues he has a five count, and goes back to the corner, stomping at the champ, making the most of the five count before breaking - and is lectured again by the referee. Noble then opens up with knife edge chops in the corner - getting WOOO chants each time from the fans, paying TBK back for mocking the legend.

Noble continues to try and wear down the champ in the opening fall, taking TBK over with a suplex, but goes back to the arm after a near fall, and Kendrick is put under pressure, needing to reach the ropes, as Noble applies an armbar after some nasty work to the body part - wrapping the arm around the ring post, dropping the arm over the top rope as he leapt out of the ring & successive knees - forcing TBK to push & show a different side to his cocky personality … and finally reaches out, making the ropes to break the hold. Noble is forced to back up, as Kendrick rolls out of the ring, trying to buy time to recover, as we head into a commercial…

Commercial Break

And we return … with the tables turned. Kendrick is on top of the action, taking the fight to Noble now, as we see clips of during the break where Kendrick continued to stall, rolling in and out of the ring, before Noble caught him with a baseball slide, then tried to leap outside onto him - but Kendrick moved out of the way. Back inside, TBK lines up Noble, hitting his overly fancy Doctor Smooths Secret Recipe. Noble stumbles out of the corner, and Kendrick follows up with a fancy hurricanrana, leaping off the middle rope, coming BACK and catching Noble from behind with the move … covering, 1...2...KICK OUT!!!

Kendrick stands up, jiving around the ring, showing off and completely wrapped up in his own world - giving Noble time to recover again. He eventually gets back on the challenger, and backs Noble into the corner, lighting up on him with chops of his own now - but they don’t get the same reaction as Nobles - UNTIL NOBLE CHOPS BACK, BATTLING OUT OF THE CORNER!!!!! Noble wins the chop fest … but Kendrick rakes the eyes!!! The champion reels away, rubbing his chest, feeling the effects, then turns back around - WITH NOBLE RIGHT IN HIS FACE - gripping Kendrick … NORTHERN LIGHTS SUPLEX!!!!! He bridges … 1...2...KENDRICK KICKS OUT!!!!!

Noble sits up, and pounds the mat in frustration, but as he gets to his feet … Kendrick rolls him up … 1...2...KICK OUT!!! Noble bounces up, knocking TBK down with a flash clothesline, then drops an elbow, over and over. He drags Kendrick up after a two count, looking for a suplex, but TBK blocks it, then counters with a cradle, 1...2...NOBLE KICKS OUT AGAIN!!! This time, both bounce up, and Noble strikes first with a knee. Kendrick doubles over, Noble runs off the ropes, connecting with a knee lift, then bounces back off, coming for a clothesline … BUT IS MET BY A DROPKICK!!!!!

Kendrick knocks Noble off his feet, then quickly drags him up, looking to finish the first fall whilst Noble is groggy, going for SLICED BREAD … BUT NOBLE COUNTERS … REVERSES … DRAGON SLEEPER!!!!! Noble has the hold locked in, cinching for all he’s worth … as Kendricks arms flail, trying to fight out … but the fight weakens … as does the resolve of the champ … AND HE TAPS OUT TO NOBLE - NOBLE WINS THE FIRST FALL!!!!!

*FIRST FALL; JAMIE NOBLE @ 15:12*

Noble leads, and Kendrick now needs to win the last two falls in order to retain his title, and a thirty second rest period is called, as Kendrick rolls out of the ring, on spaghetti legs, dousing himself with a bottle of water from the time keepers table, then grabs a drink from a fan, throwing it over himself too - but it’s beer. The champion stand still, arms wide, looking repulsed by the beer all over him … but he doesn’t have long to be sickened - as the bell rings to start the second fall!!!!

Kendrick doesn’t even have time to get back in the ring - Noble is on the champion on the outside, pounding away at TBK, hammering the back of the champ, then fires him into the barrier. Noble gets Kendrick up for a suplex, dropping him onto the barrier, sternum first, then chops TBK, sending him over the barrier, and onto the laps of the fans in the front row. Noble rolls in and out to break the count (with Heyman wondering why he wouldn’t just take the count out and win - and Styles saying he wants to win the title the proper way) and pulls TBK back over the barrier, and goes for a suplex, but Kendrick frees himself - then counters the incoming Noble with a drop toe hold.

Kendrick crawls up, and onto the apron … but cant get back in the ring, with the challenger grabbing him by the ankles, getting to his feet, and onto the apron, clubbing the back of the champion … AIMING FOR A GERMAN SUPLEX OFF THE APRON … BUT KENDRICK HOLDS ONTO THE ROPES - THEN LOW BLOWS NOBLE … WITH THE REFEREE NOT SEEING IT!!!!! Noble falls off the apron, clutching his private area, whilst Kendrick tumbles back into the ring, pointing out, wanting the count out to draw level. Korderas issues the count, with Noble struggling to make it back inside … BUT DOES - JUST IN TIME!!!

Noble is worse for wear though, and Kendrick takes full advantage, delivering a calf kick as Noble gets to his feet, but only scores a two. Kendrick pulls Noble up, and fires him into the ring post shoulder first, pulling him out, firing him into the opposite ring post shoulder first … then slams him with a power slam … 1...2...KICK OUT AGAIN!!! He cant keep Noble down!!!!! Kendrick slams his hands off the mat, then gets up, stomping Noble, as we head to another commercial break…

Commercial Break

We return, and Noble is trapped in a sleeper, but wont stay down, as Styles tells us that Kendrick has dominated the entire period during the commercial, but hasn’t been able to put Noble away. The sleeper doesn’t work either, and TBKs eyes bug out as Noble pushes back to his feet, elbowing free - as Noble drags the champ into a brawl, trading forearms … with Noble winning the exchange, hammering Kendrick into the corner, then walking out - and rushes back in … but eats knees!!! Noble staggers out, as Kendrick spots the opportunity … rushing behind, hooking Noble up and runs up the buckles … SLICED BREAD CONNECTS!!!!! Kendrick looks up to the heavens, clenching his fists, before hooking the leg … 1...2...3!!!!!

*SECOND FALL; THE BRIAN KENDRICK (1-1) @ 07:10 {22:22}*

Kendrick isn’t interested in waiting for the thirty second rest period to expire, and wants to finish off Noble in the here and now!!! Korderas refuses to count obviously, and admonishes Kendrick, who argues back - telling the official he is the greatest cruiserweight champion ever, and is allowed to do whatever he wants. He is forced to wait out the thirty second period though, and as the time expires, TBK perches himself on the middle buckle, waiting for Noble to get to his feet and turn around … and as Noble peels away from the ropes, Kendrick flies off with a LEAPING SOCCER KICK!!!!! Cover, 1...2...NO!!!!!!

Kendrick rolls around the mat in frustration, gritting his teeth, unable to put the dogged challenger away. He again drags Noble up after a lengthy discussion with the official, blaming him for the match still going. He looks for a suplex, but Noble manages to land behind him, running the champ into the ropes … ROLLING KENDRICK UP … 1...2... KENDRICK ROLLS THROUGH … 1...2... NOBLE KICKS OUT!!!!! Both men get up, with Kendrick missing wildly on a clothesline attempt, as Noble leaps up … wrapping his legs around the arms of the champion - CRUCIFIX PIN … 1...2...KICK OUT!!!!!

Kendrick just frees himself, but Noble trips him, and jackknifes the cover … 1...2...KENDRICK ROLLS A SHOULDER!!! The champion just escapes, struggling to his feet, but Noble ducks another clothesline attempt - AND BACKSLIDES KENDRICK PINNING HIM … 1...2...TBK ESCAPES AGAIN!!!!! Kendrick is a mess, out of breath, barely able to get up after being wasted by the consecutive pin attempts, and he is easy prey for Noble, who kicks the champ in the gut, then takes a breath before loading up … TIGER BOMB … CONNECTS!!!!! Noble covers … 1...2...KENDRICK KICKS OUT AGAIN!!!!! His attitude is questionable - but his heart is not!!! Kendrick survives, leaving Noble dumbfounded.

The boy from the trailer park is wide eyed, unable to fathom the kick out - and the fans seem shocked too. Noble is forced to go back to the well, and drags Kendrick to his feet, going behind, looking for a German Suplex … but Kendrick looks to counter, and rolls through … GRABBING THE TIGHTS … 1...2...NOBLE KICKS OUT!!!!! Noble bounces up, knocking Kendrick down with a reverse elbow, before telling the referee about the tight pull. He drags Kendrick up, shooting him into the ropes … but TBK holds the ropes, forcing Noble to come after him … only for the champ to get a foot up, knocking TBK down, and mounts for a cover - WITH HIS FEET ON THE ROPES … 1...2...THE REFEREE SPOTS THE FEET!!!!!

Korderas stops the count, and kicks the champions feet off the ropes, catching him out - telling Kendrick he’ll disqualify him if he does it again. Kendrick gets up, arguing with the official, seeming to realise he cant beat Noble fairly … as Noble recovers, coming from behind … DRAGON SUPLEX … BRIDGING … 1...2...KENDRICK ESCAPES!!!!! Noble is on Kendrick immediately, but shakes his head in anger and frustration as he stomps the champ by the ropes. He drags Kendrick up, but in an act of desperation, Kendrick connects with a jaw breaker!!! Noble stumbles back, into the ropes, and staggers forward - HEEL KICK!!!!! Kendrick covers, 1...2...NOBLE KICKS OUT!!!!!

Kendrick looks up to the skies, wanting the three to come, and slowly drags Noble back up, looking one last time to deliver SLICED BREAD … BUT AS HE RUNS UP THE ROPES … NOBLE COUNTERS WITH A SIDE SUPLEX!!!!! Both men are down, and slowly rise to their feet, but Noble catches the arm of the champ, and delivers an arm breaker - going back to the arm he worked over in the first fall - THEN APPLIES AN ARM BAR AGAIN!!!!! Kendrick is really forced to fight this time, with the fans in huge voice, willing Noble on … but Kendrick WONT give the title up, and again shows his own grit that lies underneath the cocky attitude … AND CLAWS TOWARD THE ROPES … GRABBING THEM!!!!!

Noble is forced to break, but stomps at the arm some more, with Kendrick in all kinds of pain. Noble attempts to apply an armbar again, but Kendrick shoves him away, fighting the challenger off as best as he can, doing everything possible to avoid the arm bar, forcing Noble to change tact, kicking TBK in the gut, connecting with a snap suplex. He thinks about the cover, but changes his mind - giving Kendrick credit for having the fortitude to kick out of everything thus far - knowing he’ll need more than that; a lot more, to put away the champion. Noble leaves his comfort zone, and climbs the buckles, perching up top, waiting for the champ to stand up … and leaps off … BUT KENDRICK COUNTERS - POWERBOMB!!!!!!!!!! 1...2...3!!!!!!!!!!

*THIRD FALL; THE BRIAN KENDRICK (2-1) @ 10:13 {32:35}*
Winner: And STILL Cruiserweight Champion - The Brian Kendrick @ 32:35

In an enthralling encounter, Kendrick EARNS the victory, catching Noble out of nowhere to finally put away the dogged challenger. Kendrick falls back, spread eagled on the canvas - exhausted, whilst Noble is flat out too; both spent after a gruelling match up, with Styles and Heyman heaping all kinds of hyperbole onto it.

Kendrick has his title belt placed onto his torso, as he remains flat out on the mat - but has a smile on his face, whilst Noble rolls onto his front, head buried into his forearm, gutted to have lost out in his final opportunity for the title. As we head into a commercial, Kendrick rolls out of the ring - stealing a drink from another fan in the front row, gulping it down & not caring what’s in the cup, stumbling from the ring - title in tact…

Commercial Break

We return, right away into the parking lot with shaky camera action, as we catch up on the (seemingly) end of a brawl between the Murdochs and Caribbean Connection … with Carlito and Kofi laid out, and we see Trevor holding a tyre iron, whilst Festus drops a rear spoiler onto the ground - clearly showing that they got the better of the fight, using weapons to put Carlito and Kofi down.

Trevor raps the tire iron on the ground, and with a smile says “not so tough now boys, huh??” He drops the weapon, patting his brother on the back, and is heard saying to Festus, “that‘ll do … for now” before the pair laugh, walking off, having gotten the better of the Caribbean Connection for the second straight week as they aim for revenge - and more.



Backstage, Jamie Noble limps toward the locker room, gulping down a bottle of water, but looks despondent, shaking his head … then rolls his eyes, as we see a smiling Layla El waiting to see him. Being overly (disingenuously) nice, Layla says Noble done really well … but like the loser he is … he lost. Noble isn’t interested in conversing with her, and tries to walk past, but she stands in front.

Layla then rips into Noble, saying that what just happened in the ring is exactly why she wants to convert the James Boys from small town hicks, to big city players - stating that if Noble had the mind set of “a real person” he’d be stood before her with the title belt now. Noble doesn’t agree, and gives Kendrick credit, telling Layla “you‘re talking right outta your pretty little rear end, missy.” before explaining that he was simply beaten by the better man.

He reminds Layla that he was once the type of person she is trying to make the James Boys when he was brainwashed by JBL, and would never go back to it now, telling her that he wont stand by and watch her corrupt the two kids. As Noble goes on, he doesn’t realise NICK NEMETH creeping up behind him, and Nemeth eventually speaks up, saying that Noble is full of it.

Nemeth tells Noble that he should stay out of Laylas way, and let her work some “much needed magic” on the James Boys, saying they need a boost of confidence, and being two country town small timers wont help them one iota. Noble throws the towel off his shoulder, getting angry, telling Nemeth he’s just wrestled for 30 minutes, but he’ll gladly slap the taste out of the Narcissists mouth.

Nick backs up, telling Noble he’s a prizefighter, and doesn’t conduct business outside the ring “like some trailer park gypsy”, but as he backs up, he backs into … PAUL LONDON. The United States Champion stands tall, asking Noble if there is a problem, with Nemeth speaking up first, saying there isn’t. Nemeth stops though, putting up a finger, taking a look at the U.S title belt, before smirking.

Nemeth tells London he’s been watching London for a while now … and doesn’t get the hype. The brash - undefeated - Nemeth tells London he’s done a fine job as U.S Champion … “but perhaps it‘s time for your party to end … see … there‘s a new ‘Golden Boy’ in town.” Nemeth eyes London, smiling in the champions face, before motioning to Layla for them to leave, which she does. London and Noble then stand, watching the pair leave, shaking their heads at the attitudes of both.



Back at ringside, Joey Styles and Paul Heyman recap the incredible 2 out of 3 falls match, with Styles admitting that Brian Kendrick - despite his attitude - has earned his respect as champion, begrudgingly calling him a worthy champ after tonight’s performance…

**THREE SUNS AND ONE STAR**

And speaking of ‘worthy(?)’ champions, Americas Most Wanted - with Michelle McCool in tow - make their way to the ring, with the titles still in tact, all thanks to the unexpected run in from the Murdochs last week, just as it looked like their run as champions was over. Styles makes the point that while Kendrick has proven himself tonight, AMW continue to get lucky, claiming it must be a matter of time before they come unstuck. We are told we’ll hear from the champions - next.

Commercial Break

We return with the trio in the ring, as Storm and Harris proudly polish their titles, looking far more confident and arrogant tonight than they did a week ago when they walked into Detroit fully expecting to lose. McCool speaks first, telling the fans to give it up for the greatest WWE tag team champions in history … and is given a response of boos. She looks disgusted by the response, and feels she needs to remind the fans that AMW have held the titles for just a shade under TEN MONTHS - with Storm chiming in, “nine months and 26 days to be exact” … “or 300 days - not that we‘re counting” is the addition from Harris.

{/SECOND HOUR}

McCool nods, calling it an epic achievement, and tells the fans AMW are closing in on Demolitions all time single longest reign in the WWE, with just 179 days to go until they bypass them … but are just 80 days shy of breaking the record for Demolitions total combined reigns, with AMW’s four title runs calculating 618 days, saying that this proves “without a shadow of a doubt” that Harris and Storm are the greatest tag team champions ever. The fans boo, and McCool laughs, telling the fans “you can boo, hiss, close your eyes and put fingers in your ears if you don’t wanna believe it … but AMW … are … the … best … ever!!! FACT!!!”

Harris takes over, commenting on their 618 days total as champions spanned over four different title reigns, telling the fans it’s the second longest accumulation of days as champions by any team in the WWE - either as WWE or World Tag Champions, stating, “Longer than the Wild Samoans, longer than the Hart Foundation, LOD, Money Inc. The New Age Outlaws didn’t break 600 in FIVE reigns, and the Dudleys couldn’t do it in EIGHT reigns.” He goes on to say that it’s a matter of time before they surpass Demolition, being arrogant enough to say that he cant fathom any time when they’ll ever lose the titles - completely forgetting how close they came last week.

Storm now steps in, saying “as if all that wasn’t enough to convince ya”, and begins to list their accomplishments as champions over the last couple of years, but specifically this current “defining” reign, telling the fans that just to win the belts they had to beat the current United States and Cruiserweight champions, “then we took out YOUR idols; The Hardy Girls. WE retired a FIVE TIME, FIVE TIME, FIVE TIME, FIVE TIME, FIVE TIME Dubya Cee Dubya Champ, and we saw off the jumping jacks from the Caribbean.” Storm tells the fans that you don’t have to like them, but you cant deny that AMW are the greatest team of all time.

**PAPARAZZI**

What~!? Confusion is the reaction initially … before the red carpet is rolled out … AND MNM STRIDE ONTO THE STAGE!!!!! Despite the videos in recent weeks, the debut of MNM had not been revealed to be tonight, and causes a shock inside the Bobcat Arena, as AMW and McCool look visibly angered by the interruption to their party - their moment to bask in glory. Melina leads Mercury and Nitro to the ring, and plays up to the fans a little before doing the banana split entrance - which Heyman sells beautifully, asking for a replay. Making their debut on Smackdown, MNM enter the ring, with AMW furious, getting in their faces, wanting them out of the ring.

Melina grabs a mic from McCool, putting her hand up in Michelles face as if to say ‘whatever’, then starts to speak, saying she, Johnny & Joey have listened to everything that “Peter Griffin, Homer Simpson and Samantha Jones” had to say, and calls their achievements “impressive” … but states that despite their run, “it’s all about to change.” Melina states that MNM have arrived on Smackdown, “and that‘s bad news for ‘your damn luck’ guys.” Melina states that MNM are the better team in every way, prodding AMW’s bellies as she says her boys have better bodies, rubs Nitro and Mercurys faces when she says they’re better looking, quicker, more athletic, smarter … and they definitely have the better looking diva.

CATFIGHT!!! McCool snaps at that remark, and tackles Melina down right away, as Mercury and Nitro square off with Harris and Storm, beating the champs to the punch, as Melina reverses on the mat, getting on top of McCool, with the debuting trio definitely winning the battle, as Storm and Harris are kicked out of the ring, and McCool scrambles away from Melina - but not before having her top ripped off by the fierce diva, exposing her bra!!! Harris and Storm use the belts to cover up their valet, whilst Nitro twirls the ripped shirt around and Melina shows off blonde extensions she ripped out of McCools head.

MNM stand tall in the ring as AMW bail, with Styles saying that Nitro, Mercury and Melina have arrived in style, as we fade out… and backstage, we see M.V.P walking down the hallway, as his match - the type of match he has been crying out for - with Batista - IS NEXT!!!

Commercial Break

Match 3:
Batista vs. M.V.P
Porter, getting the big opportunity he has asked for, doesn’t let himself down, and looks at home in a big match with The Animal. Not rushing into things, MVP takes his time to lock up, and after being overpowered into the corner, he changes his gameplan, and looks to take Batista down, tripping him by the ankle. It’s all very cagey stuff, with the big man scrambling free, and the pair circling around. Eventually the action breaks down, with MVP surprisingly gaining control, using his sneaky tactics to gain the upper hand. Batista though, battles back strong, mounting offence, and just when Montel believes he’s stopped The Animal in his tracks - SPINEBUSTER!!!!! Big Dave plants Porter with the spine buster, which could spell disaster for MVP…

BUT THE LIGHTS GO OUT!!!

And return, with THE UNDERTAKER in the ring … GRABS BATISTA BY THE THROAT … and before The Animal has time to react … CHOKESLAM CONNECTS!!!!! The Deadman stands over Batista, as MVP tries to collect himself … with the referee obviously having to call for a DQ.
Winner: Via DQ - Batista @ 04:53

The Undertaker turns, and leaves the ring … but MVP is irate as he picks himself up in the ring, having his own big opportunity blown, even if it did look like he might have been in trouble. The Deadman walks up the aisle - message sent - whilst MVP stands in the ring, hands on hips, furious … as Batista turns over, onto his front, spitting, recovering, as he watches The Deadman leave the arena.

Commercial Break

We return from the commercial with the arrival of Randy Orton, who still intends to call out “and deal with” Arn Anderson before this night is over. Back at ringside, the commentary team revisit the previous match, with The Undertaker gaining a measure of revenge on Batista … before it is announced that NEXT WEEK on Smackdown … the collision will happen; BATISTA VERSUS THE UNDERTAKER - ONE ON ONE!!!

The graphic on the screen gets the fans pumped, wanting to see the two big men finally get it on. Styles and Heyman then remind the fans that the first pick of Shawn Michaels for Team Raw will face Brock Lesnars first Team Smackdown pick tonight, then they throw to a recap video of the explosive contract signing from this past Monday night on Raw.



**HERE COMES THE PAIN**

Once the video plays, Brock Lesnar makes his entrance - his first Smackdown appearance in three weeks - obviously not dressed to compete, casually dressed, as Styles and Heyman tell us that we’ll find out his first recruit for Smackdown … NEXT!!!!!

Commercial Break

Back from the commercial, Lesnar is in the ring, and explains that Arn Anderson has given him free reign to pick the team for Survivor Series - placing plenty of trust into the Iron Man, before he gives a big introduction for the first person he has recruited to be on the team … PAUL LONDON!!!

**STAY IN SHADOW**

A massive pop greets the exciting United States Champion, and he makes his way to the ring, shaking hands with Brock when he gets there. On commentary, it’s noted by Styles that it’s interesting that Lesnar has went for London first - reminding the fans of the tutelage he received when breaking into the business by Shawn Michaels, wondering if that’s part of the reasoning behind by the pick by Brock. They then announce that in three weeks on Smackdown, London will once again defend his U.S Championship - this time against the impressive ‘Lone Star’ Garrison Cade, off the back of Cades recent streak of victories over Batista, earning him a shot at championship gold.

**SEXY BOY**

Shawn Michaels now steps onto the stage to a HUGE reaction, given this is a very rare Smackdown appearance by the Showstopper. He plays up unfamiliarity as he looks at the set, acting lost, before realising where he is, and makes his way to the ring, slapping hands with the fans. He walks around the ringside area, picking up a mic, and firstly congratulates Lesnar on making a great first pick, giving London a big rub … and then moves onto HIS pick. Michaels tells the audience that he went straight for the best guy possible, putting personal feelings aside, before saying he doesn’t like the guy … and smiles as he looks to Brock, telling him that he knows Brock doesn’t like him either …

**MEDAL**

IT’S KURT FREAKIN ANGLE!!!!! Lesnar watches, as Angle steps onto the stage, getting a huge reaction despite being an out and out heel. Brock makes sure that Michaels sees him clapping, before having a long talk with London, as Styles gives the fans a history lesson, reminding them that just over two years ago, London nearly pulled off the ultimate upset as Cruiserweight champion when he came close to beating then WWE Champion Kurt Angle for the title. He then reminds the fans that London DOES hold a victory over Angle last summer, and nearly beat him in a 2 out of 3 falls match last July. Angle nods to HBK, with clearly no love lost between the two, as we head to a commercial before the match.

Commercial Break

Main Event | TEAM SMACKDOWN PICK VS TEAM RAW PICK:
Paul London w/Brock Lesnar vs. Kurt Angle w/Shawn Michaels
I burned myself out on the cruiserweight match, so apologies for being a little quick with the detail in this one. Anyway, you’d expect it to be good, you don’t need my details for that to happen. It’s fast paced, with plenty of counter wrestling, whilst it’s strictly one on one, with Lesnar and Michaels no more than spectators. Deep into the contest, London survives the ankle lock, making the ropes, and then dodges an Angle slam, catching the Olympian with a step up enziguri.

That gives London the opening to climb up top, and set himself for the 450 SPLASH … BUT ANGLE LEAPS UP … LOOKING FOR THE BELLY TO BELLY … BUT LONDON SHOVES HIM OFF!!!!! London steadies himself … standing … AND GOES FOR THE 450 SPLASH … BUT ANGLE ROLLS TO SAFETY!!! Angle then applies the ankle lock for the second time, and despite a brave effort to survive, London cant reach the ropes … and HAS TO TAP!!!!!
Winner: Kurt Angle @ 11:35

It’s a win for Angle - and Raw - striking first blood on the road toward the Survivor Series. Angle has his arm raised, and eyes Lesnar on the outside, rubbing it in on the Iron Man, as we see Michaels backing up the ramp, happy with the outcome, outdoing his counterpart tonight. In the ring, Angle shows off his Gold Medal, as Styles gives a quick plug for the Mask vs. Medal match at Nemesis in nine days, before going back to the outcome of this match, calling it a ‘blow’ for Smackdown.

Commercial Break

**VIDEO PACKAGE**

The video opens very cinematically, on a huge ship, in the middle of the ocean, with the ships name seen - RMS Titanic.

The video cuts to the bow of the ship, where two men - clearly dressed from the early 1900’s - are looking ahead at the beautiful scenery. In a clear rip off of a scene from the James Cameron blockbuster film ‘Titanic’, the Leonardo DiCaprio look-a-like climbs up, leaning over the edge…

Young Man: WOOO!!!

Second Man: I can see the statue of liberty already … very small of course.

Beaming with a smile, the first man continues to stand up on the railing, over the edge of the ship.

Young Man: I’M THE KING OF THE WORRRRRRRLLLLDDDD!!!! WOOO!!! WOO HOO!!!!! WOOOOO!!! YEE-HAAAAW!!! AWOOO-

~ SMACK!!!

The young man gets smashed from behind with a steel chair, and topples over the edge, and falls into the sea!!! The camera fans from the second mans point of view, showing … BRENT ALBRIGHT holding the chair!!! Albright smirks, faking to hit the second man with a chair, with the man running off in fear. Albright steps forward, peering over the edge of the ship, and with a smirk…

Brent Albright: Well I’m the King of the Ring, Jack.

The Survivor Series logo then flashes across the screen.

Narrator: On November 11, the WWE presents Hollywoods Biggest Blockbuster of 2007 … The Twenty first annual SURVIVOR SERIES!!! And the WWE superstars are tearing up the script!!

***



We return backstage and see Paul London returning from the ring, looking disappointed, but his disappointment turns to annoyance … as he is met by Nick Nemeth. Nemeth commiserates with London momentarily, before telling London that his bad night is just about to get worse, as Nemeth reveals he has just come from Arn Andersons office and been granted a request of a one on one match with Paul London - next week. London nods, saying “fine by me”, with Nemeth telling the Golden Boy “relax. It wont be for the U.S Title”. He then walks past London, but gets in the champions ear and smiles before saying “yet.” Nemeth leaves, as London watches on…



Back at ringside, Styles and Heyman hype next weeks show - ANOTHER stacked line up, with Nick Nemeth vs. Paul London added to the huge main event of Batista and The Undertaker, and the in ring debut of MNM on Smackdown, against the winless James Boys.

**VOICES**

Stepping into the arena, the STILL WWE Champion makes his way to the ring, title over his shoulder, as Styles and Heyman remind the fans that he retained the title last week on Smackdown in peculiar fashion against the Undertaker, having gotten himself counted out and disqualified - only for Anderson to restart the match each time … leading to Orton promising to “deal with” the GM tonight. Styles and Heyman both wonder what he has in store for Double A, saying we’ll find out … NEXT~!!

Commercial Break

In the ring, Orton cuts to the chase, stating that he’s fed up of having to put up with the biased decision making of the GM, talking through the Elimination Chamber “fiasco” of having to defend the title against men he had already disposed of previously, and then last week, when he was stripped of a champions advantage - TWICE. The champion states that under normal circumstances, he would be happy to wait until after Survivor Series when Arn Anderson will be out of a job … “but I fear if I wait that long, that bitter old fool will have found a way to take - or strip - this title from me.”

Orton turns his attention to the stage, and coldly says that what’s about to happen has been coming for a long time … before he calls Arn Anderson to the ring. Orton waits patiently, standing by the ropes, leaning on them, awaiting the arrival of the GM … but Arn has yet to show. Orton then talks again, saying that he understands Double A might be scared of facing him like a man … reminding the fans of what he has done to RVD, Chris Jericho, Nick Dinsmore and Tommy Dreamer … then says he wont let Arn off like he did Ric Flair - eliciting a response from the fans in Charlotte for the mention of Flair. Orton is about to talk more about Flair, when…

**WILD HORSES**

Finally, Arn Anderson enters, and marches to the ring, saluting the fans, slapping a few hands on his way, whilst Orton smirks, watching the GM walk to the ring - for the last time??? Orton stands still, mid ring, allowing Anderson to climb in, but Arn is slow to enter, almost expecting to be set upon by the WWE Champion. Anderson does step inside though, and puts up a hand to Orton as if to stay back, before pulling a mic from the back pocket of his jeans. He tells Orton he has something for him, but needs a few minutes first. Orton nods, telling Arn (off mic) “I‘ll give you a few moments.”

Anderson begins to speak, telling Orton he needs to clearly think about what he’s planning to do - “I‘ve never had more clarity” is the quick response from the champion. Double A nods, and tells Orton his side of things, admitting he despises Orton … but he IS NOT actively trying to get the WWE title from him. He explains to Orton that he’s setting up each and every challenge in order to test Orton, and make Orton WORTHY of holding the title. Anderson points at the belt, telling Orton it’s a “symbol of being the absolute best on the planet, the pinnacle of professional wrestling” and if Orton wants to keep the title, he needs to accept the challenges thrown in his path.

Orton doesn’t accept the explanation though, telling Anderson he’s “full of it”, stating that he is convinced that Arn wont rest until Orton no longer holds the title, and it’s all down to the fact that he sent his best friend into retirement, “with his tail between his legs, like the COWARD he is.” Anderson shakes his head, and goes off on a tangent, ripping into Orton that he hasn’t earned the right to talk about the greatest of all time in that manner; “NO ONE HAS!!” telling Orton that no matter what he accomplishes in the WWE, he’ll never surpass Ric Flair, he’ll never have the adulation and respect of the fans, he’ll never-

RKO!!!!!

Anderson gets dropped by the RKO!!!!! Orton flattens the General Manager, with the arena in hysterics, shocked and disgusted at the same time!!! Orton stands up, peering down at Anderson, shaking his head … because he isn’t done. Randy backs away, stepping into the corner. The buzz around the arena drops toward pure silence, as Anderson remains out on the canvas, with Orton having to wait … and wait … with Joey Styles exclaiming on commentary for someone to quickly come and stop this before it goes too far. Orton is like a coiled spring in the corner, holding the ropes, ready to explode at the right moment … as Arn is still flat on the canvas, selling the effects of the RKO …

**ALSO SPRACH ZARATHUSTRA**

You’ve NEVER heard a reaction like this one … after almost ELEVEN months off television … RIC FLAIR IS BACK … RETURNING IN NORTH CAROLINA … TO AN INCREDIBLE, ROOF BUSTING REACTION!!!!!!! Ortons eyes bug out, thinking he’s seen a ghost, and turns his attention toward Flair, who walks down the aisle, mouthing all kinds of obscenities at Orton … then runs down the aisle, sliding into the ring … with Orton stomping the legend as soon as he slides in!!!!!

Orton doesn’t even allow Flair to get up, putting the boots to Slick Ric, dragging him to his feet … MULE KICK FROM FLAIR!!!!!! Orton reels away, holding his privates, wincing … as Flair rips his jacket off, choking Orton with it!!!!! Randy escapes, pulling the jacket away … BUT FLAIR POKES THE EYES!!! Orton stumbles away, holding his face, as Flair backs him up into the corner, blasting him with rights and lefts … THEN RIPS ORTONS T-SHIRT OFF … AND LAYS INTO HIM WITH KNIFE EDGE CHOPS!!!!!

The fans gladly WOOOOO to each chop, with Flair finally relenting, stepping up onto the middle buckle, and BITES the face of the WWE Champion!!! Orton pushes off, trying to get away, holding his face again … as Flair goes mad, lining up a shot … AND PUNTS ORTON … RIGHT IN THE BALLS!!!!! Randy drops to his knees, rolling around in agony, as we see Anderson beginning to recover now … with Flair grabbing the leg of Orton and the fans go berserk, as Naitch jives around, before applying THE FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK!!!!!

Orton is caught in the middle of the ring, trapped in the submission, with Flair grabbing the ropes for further leverage, as Orton starts to tap the mat with both hands, wanting the hold to be released, with Flair eventually finally relenting, letting go, as the champion instantly rolls out of the ring, grabbing his belt before high tailing it. In the ring, Flair is still going crazy, leaning over the ropes, screaming at Orton after eleven months of sitting at home … then turns around, helping Arn to his feet … and the best friends hug!!!

The fans give the old timers a standing ovation, with Flair saving Anderson from a certain punt kick. It’s a feel good ending to Smackdown, with Flair and Anderson standing tall, raising one anothers arm, whilst Orton doubles over on the stage, struggling to fathom just what happened to him tonight, with RIC FLAIR shocking the world by making a stunning return. The show ends with the old Horsemen standing tall, side by side…

END OF SHOW

Default Re: Being The Booker

Some assorted thoughts from recent RAWs and SmackDown!'s:

You've got some brilliant storylines going at the moment. I think enough has been said about Angle/Mysterio, no need for me to even expand on it. Great stuff. But I really love the Cena/Kennedy and Umaga/Christian feuds as well. Both feel so raw and personal, certainly fitting with the whole "Nemesis" theme. Very excited to see where it all leads after Nemesis. Christian/Cena, Christian/Kennedy and Cena/Umaga would all be brilliant possibilities for Survivor Series. That Nemesis card looks hot in general. Benjamin/Hardy in a steel cage should be a thriller, though I can't say the possibility of Hardy becoming champ brings much excitement. There's a lot more you can do with Benjamin's character as champion so hopefully he retains. The match that excites me more than any other on the undercard is the tag team titles match. I have really enjoyed all three teams and I think there is definitely some potential for some brilliant matches between all three teams in the coming months. The tag team division, once a weakness, is definitely looking strong at the moment. Nice job revitalizing it. I don't have much to say about the Smith/Burchill feud except that it should make a for a nice solid filler match and the Katie Lea bit gives it enough spice to not be completely lost in the shuffle. I hope the Cody/Dustin program ends soon, it has been an interesting dynamic but has probably been drawn out long enough. Even if recapped, this looks like it will be an awesome PPV. Great card especially for a single brand PPV. Just superb build. You can get a reader excited for matches like no other.

Really pumped for the Survivor Series 7-on-7 elimination match. HBK and Lesnar make for great captains and I'm crossing my fingers to see them get in the ring at some point in the near future, as I can't recall ever seeing it in your thread. London and Angle are both inspired picks, but sifting through all the possibilities for each team, I have to say that the RAW upper card looks significantly stronger than the SD! upper card at the moment. I can only speculate as to who you pick for each team, but to me RAW looks like it could put together a more stacked team of seven. Maybe you have an ace up your sleeve though. Either way, should be epic stuff, the losing GM being fired is an awesome stipulation. I really wouldn't mind either being gone, both have abused their power to a degree. Anderson with better intentions sure, but still abuse of power nonetheless.

The Edge storyline since WrestleMania has been top notch. His fruitless quest for gold has been exciting to watch and I know it's a matter of when rather than if, but I wonder how far you'll draw out his struggle. Edge finally having enough and quitting was a nice twist. Have no idea where it goes from here, but another piece of great booking.

SmackDown! has been interesting. The talent pool as I've mentioned earlier is not up to par with RAW, but you've compensated very well. Batista/Taker definitely has some potential and with the WWE able to maximize both men's talents for some great matches in 2007, I'm sure you'd have no trouble doing the same. I wonder if both get involved in the championship picture and if this becomes a launching pad for Batista into the main event, something he has never been able to reach in this thread. BTW, I love Garrison Cade's new character. A great example of you building a nobody into a somebody. I don't see any main events in his future, but he is a nice upper mid card guy to keep around. I really hope he doesn't fade into obscurity again like he did after the HBK feud. I hope London drops the US title to Nemeth soon, so you can push him into the main event. I know many people may not want that, but I think London playing the underdog role among the big dogs would work nicely. He's already had some classics with established wrestlers like Angle and Triple H in this thread, I'd like to see him stay in that class. I think (and hope) you're pushing him there. The return of MNM is huge. America's Most Wanted desperately needed a new challenger and this has the potential to be an AMAZING tag team feud. Will be interesting to see MNM out of the chickenshit heel role and playing the faces. Although it would be entertaining as hell to keep them both as asshole heel tandems. I'd love it, but it would never realistically happen. I really don't car much for the Mad Murdoch Twins/Caribbean Connection feud as the Murdochs do nothing for me. I hope it runs its course soon because I'm not feeling it to be honest. But knowing you, you'll maximize the potential of it and make it something worth tuning into. I love the "The Brian Kendrick" character and nobody in that cruiserweight division can touch him right now. He is probably big enough at this point to jump into the US title scene permanently. Right now, he is the big fish in a small pond and unless you have plans to drop some more big fish in the cruiserweight division, he is ready to move on IMO. Ric Flair returning was awesome. One of the best endings to one of your shows I can remember, and I can only wonder where the feud goes from here. It's hard to see Flair coming after the title, but I kind of like the idea of Orton having a feud that is so personal, the championship takes a back seat. Excited to see where this goes, and who will come after Orton's title next if it isn't Flair.

Overall, despite a lot of talent on leave at the moment, you have maximized the potential of a lot of wrestlers in this thread and made some very intriguing feuds. Nemesis and Survivor Series are sure to be great.

EDIT: Oh, and I'll definitely make a greater effort to review the majority of your individual shows from now on. I've been frequenting this site for the past few years pretty much solely because I love this thread, but I haven't really written much feedback. That will definitely change.

Default Re: Being The Booker

I like that Batista is getting booed now. I prefer Batista as a heel, since I'm not really a Batista fan , so hopefully he'll go in that direction. Cade admitting that he did it seemed a bit strange, though some sort of revelation for that was needed...just don't know if that was the right direction unless he was forced to admit it by the higher ups. Looking forward to Batista vs. Taker if done well from here.

An expected win for CC that is needed after their loses in their matches with AMW. Looking forward to what twist happens in the car park.

As much as I like Jamie Noble, I think this was the best move to make. TBK needs to keep his spotlight in the thread. Great PPV quality match up here.

...Was surprised that CC just got laid out and that's the end. Simply done, but we'll see where this heads from here.

I think this show definitely needs some changes to their tag team scene. After the revamp from SummerSlam's build up, everything was looking good, but now that three teams who can all be thrown into the same gimmick pot (James Boys, The Murdochs, and AMW) I think there needs to be some changes character wise and I think the James Boys could definitely use it more than anyone else out of the three. As for Nick Nemeth, <3.

I'm confused about this whole record ordeal...almost at the longest single reign, but closing in on their total reigns...whaaa...oh never mind I get it now. Yay! MNM vs. AMW!

From Undertaker's earlier promo I was sort of expecting this feud to take a little while to pick up again, but glad to see it kick off now. Nice way to escape giving MVP a definite loss as well. Wow, surprised a match is next week.

Paul London w/Brock Lesnar vs. Kurt Angle w/Shawn Michaels: Aww a Paul London loss , but a Kurt Angle win . These teams are shaping up nicely imo.

Looks like a huge Smackdown! next week...interesting...NEMETH .

Great finish to Smackdown! and I'm guessing we'll be seeing Ric Flair vs. Randy Orton at Survivor Series to hold Orton over for whoever his next challenger will be. Really looking forward to next week's Smackdown! which has been built up greatly.

Monday Night Raw Preview:

Raw rolls into Chicago, just six days away from Nemesis, with Eric Bischoffs no contact ruling still in effect for one more week. And for some, they'll be put to the test on Raw, with Mister Kennedy and John Cena - set to meet at Nemesis - TEAMING up in Chicago ... against Rey Mysterio and Kurt Angle, who are also set to collide this coming Sunday. With their potential matches in the balance should they come to blows, can the four men remain professional and team with the most hated foe for one night??

Also, on the Playas Club, Christian will come face to face with Umaga just six days before their Summerslam rematch for the World Heavyweight Champion, and just a week after Christian sent Armando Estrada to the hospital. Can Coach - or anyone - prevent Umaga from breaking the edict passed down from the GM?? The two meet on Coach's own talk show, but there might not be much talking when these two foes face off just six days before Nemesis.

Confirmed Matches:
Mr. Kennedy & John Cena vs Kurt Angle & Rey Mysterio
CM Punk vs Christopher Daniels vs Brent Albright
The Brotherhood vs Matt Hardy & The East Coast Party Boys

***

Sorry about the condensed preview. I'll post the show tomorrow.

Monday Night Raw | October 8 2007 | Chicago IL


Opening Video

Pyro

**MISERIA CANTARE**

WOW!!! It’s a major reaction for the Chicago made CM Punk, as Raw kicks off with a bang, and a preview of what’s to come on Sunday, as he, Christopher Daniels and Brent Albright get set to face off in a triple threat match. Punk is given a huge action, as J.R and Coach try to open the show, hyping the two big things coming up tonight; Mister Kennedy & John Cena vs. Kurt Angle & Rey Mysterio; foes team tonight, just six days before they meet at Nemesis!!!

Plus, The Coach hosts the Playas Club, with Christian - and Armando Estrada with Umaga, as AAE is somehow here tonight, despite the beating he took last week!!! Punk soaks up the fans reaction in the ring, as he wait’s the arrival of his two opponents…

Match 1 | TRIPLE THREAT MATCH:
CM Punk vs. Christopher Daniels vs. ‘The 2007 King of the Ring’ Brent Albright
Thrilling opening match of the night, with the Chicagoan fans hot for the action, pulling for ‘their guy’ CM Punk, drowning out the commentary with “C-M PUNK” chants in the opening moments. Punk shines early on, and in a nice spot, hits his running knee in the corner on Daniels, then the running bulldog out of the corner on him, whilst nailing Albright with a clothesline using his other arm as he runs back out hitting the bulldog!!! Punk stands tall, soaking up the cheers, as we head into a commercial - the first of the night.

Commercial Break

And, back live, Albright is now in charge, with Punk on the outside, as we see a clip of during the commercial where Punk attempted to spring off the ropes onto Daniels, but got pulled off from the outside by Brent, and then thrown into the steps. Back live, it’s Albright & Daniels, with the Fallen Angels mounting a comeback, scoring near falls on Albright, and goes up top, but gets caught. Albright climbs up, setting up for a superplex … but in comes Punk … TOWER OF DOOM!!!! Albright hit’s the superplex, but Punk power bombs Albright!!!! Punk covers Albright, 1...2...KICK OUT!!!

Daniels rolls out momentarily, leaving Punk and Albright to battle it out, with Punk unable to deliver the Punk Card, as Albright blocks the knee then takes Punk down with a Dragon Screw. They then trade German Suplexes, with Albright hitting one, then Punk switching as they get up to hit his own … and the same thing happens again, Albright hitting one, then Punk hits one back. Punk gets Albright up, looking for a second German … BUT DANIELS IS BACK … GERMAN TO PUNK … AS HE HIT’S A GERMAN ON ALBRIGHT!!!!! Daniels covers Punk first, 1...2...KICK OUT … then he covers Albright … 1...2...KICK OUT!!!

The three men then begin to show off some creative, three way spots, as Daniels springs off the ropes at Albright, but Brent ducks, and Daniels leaps into a roundhouse kick from Punk … with Albright then tackling Punk down with the Crowbar submission!!!!! Punk wont tap though, and reaches out, looking to grab the ropes … and does!!!!! Albright shoots Punk into the corner, rushing in behind, but Punk pushes up, over Brent, who hit’s the corner, and Punk rolls him up, 1...2...ALBRIGHT ROLLS THROUGH, HOOKING THE TIGHTS … 1...2...DANIELS BREAKS THE COUNT WITH AN ENZIGURI TO THE KING OF THE RING!!!

Punk is back up before Daniels can capitalise, and they trade blows back and forth - with the fans solidly behind Punk, with Punk winning the battle, and sends Daniels into the ropes with an Irish Whip, but Daniels holds the ropes, forcing Punk to come at him, only for the Fallen Angel to low bridge the ropes, sending the Illinois native out of the ring!!! Daniels spots his opening … BME TO ALBRIGHT!!!!! But, as Daniels hits it, Punk slides back in, and picks Daniels up … PUNK CARD CONNECTS!!!!! Punk covers Daniels … 1...2...3!!!!!
Winner: CM Punk @ 13:00

In a truly excellent showcase for the potential in this Sundays triple threat tag title match, CM Punk comes out victorious - surely a good sign for the champions?? Punk takes the chance to bask in the glory in front of HIS fans, pounding the belt, then pounding his chest, as Albright recovers on the outside, looking back in the ring at the winner with disdain. Daniels meanwhile, recovers in the corner, sat up, holding his jaw, as J.R wonders if this is the sight we’ll see when the three men have their tag team partners added to the mix - and the title on the line, before sending the action backstage to Matt Striker.



Backstage, we see Striker with The Rhodes Brothers, as Cody takes on Harry Smith in just a few moments. Cody first talks about Smith being another embarrassment, claiming that Smith is tarnishing the name of both his father and the Hart family with his pathetic displays, stating that he’d love to have a legacy and lineage like Smith does, but is instead stuck with two jokes to follow in the footsteps of. In the background, Dustin shakes his head in disgust - undetected by Cody - who then moves on to Jerry Lawler and Ken Doane … ACCEPTING their challenge to a tag team match this Sunday at Nemesis.

Cody says he’s had enough of dealing with a dinosaur like Lawler, and doesn’t respect a suck up like Doane, speaking for his brother by saying THEY are ready to move on with their lives … just as we hear a faint “GOLD-DUST” chant coming … FROM JERRY LAWLER!!! The King enters the picture, with the fans now chanting the same, as he tells Cody that he’s right about one thing - it is time to move on. He takes a look at Dustin, and tells Cody it’s time he freed his brother from this nonsense, and let him live his life again - let him enjoy himself, while telling Cody it’s time he stood on his own two feet. Cody is furious as Lawler walks off, chanting Goldust again, as we fade out…

Commercial Break

Match 2:
Cody Rhodes w/Dustin Rhodes vs. Harry Smith
Of course, J.R and Coach hype up the respective matches each man has at Nemesis this Sunday, with Smith set to take on former partner Burchill, as Katie Lea will be special guest referee. This is a short match, which does little to capture the imagination, following a basic formula, as Rhodes works over Smith until Harry battles back, rocking Cody with several near falls. He gets set to hit the running power slam, but Cody slips off, and the two men eventually knock each other off their feet with a double clothesline.

Dustin then slides a chair into the ring for his brother … but is spotted by the referee, who throws the chair back out and admonishes the elder Rhodes to the back … and whilst all this happens, Katie Lea slips to the ringside area undetected, slipping the chair back in for Smith. Harry is up, but doesn’t want the chair, and kicks it back out, telling Katie he doesn’t need it … just as Cody comes from behind, attacking Smith, making the most of the opportunity … CROSS RHODES!!!!! Cody covers, whilst Katie has her hands on her head, realising she messed up … 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Cody Rhodes @ 04:58

Rhodes picks up a morale boosting win, celebrating like he just won a title, getting in the face of the camera, getting a message to Lawler & Doane, telling them that’s what to expect on Sunday. He then leaves the ring, as Katie Lea enters, trying to help Harry up, apologising to him as he stirs. But, just as Harry sits up … KATIE IS DRAGGED OUT OF THE RING…

… BY PAUL BURCHILL!!! Burchill chews his sister out for tending to Smith, and roughly drags her by the arm, away from the ring, ordering her into the back as he stays behind, standing at the entrance way, looking back down at Smith in the ring, shouting down to Smith “LEAVE HER ALONE!!! SHE‘S MY SISTER - SHE‘S MINE!!!” before huffing and puffing, leaving through the curtain, as Smith watches on.



We cut backstage, and see the immense sight of the Samoan Bulldozer, Umaga, leading the way, as the camera pans to show Armando Estrada wheeling himself in a wheelchair, with a cast on one leg, and wearing a neck brace. Coach talks about the courage of the man, saying he must be in incredible pain, but he is still here, then claps, as J.R tells his broadcast colleague to cut it out. J.R shills the Playas Club for Coach, later tonight, plus the tag match with opponents on Sunday teaming tonight, reminding the fans of Eric Bischoffs ruling of no contact. We then cut, and see a pensive Mickie James making her way through the backstage area, in action - next.

Commercial Break

We return with Beth Phoenix joining J.R and Coach at ringside, doing a spot of guest commentary for the next match, as we see Maryse already in the ring with Test and Tomko by her side, giving her every reason to be confident…

**SO FINE**

Mickie James makes her way to the ring, devoid of confidence, with Beth chuckling at the demeanour of the former champion, calling Mickie weak and pathetic - just like she was when in her Mothers care and always has been - taking great joy in telling the commentary team she’ll happily finish her off on Sunday, and hopes Mickie leaves for good after the humiliation she’ll receive at Nemesis.

Match 3:
Maryse w/TNT vs. Mickie James
It’s another disappointing performance from Mickie, still reeling from being overmatched against Beth thus far in the Best of Five series. On commentary, Beth asks how Mickie could ever beat her three times out of five - considering how she’s still undefeated - let alone three out of three. Mickie begins to find a groove, showing a glimpse of what she’s capable of, taking the overly cocky French Canadian down with a Lou Thesz press, teeing off with right hands.

Mickie starts to feel the energy, and lines up a Chick Kick - BUT MARYSE IS TRIPPED AND PULLED FROM THE RING BY TEST!!!!! Maryse is saved by her team, and while the referee scolds Test for getting involved … Tomko has slipped into the ring … BLASTING MICKIE WITH A BIG BOOT DAMN NEAR TAKING HER HEAD OFF!!!!! He rolls back out, and Maryse back in, crawling into the cover while laughing, hooking the leg of Mickie … 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Maryse @ 04:02

Maryse steals it, compounding Mickies horrible run of luck. She has her hand raised, before posing by the ropes, as Beth leaves commentary, picking up a mic. She waits as Maryse and her pair leave the ring, carrying the blonde on their shoulders, then steps inside, walking around Mickie saying “Well, well, well. Mickie James is on her back, looking up at the lights - AGAIN!!”

Beth kneels down, feigning pity for Mickie, telling her that’s it’s getting tiring watching her struggle, week after week, but on Sunday, she plans on doing Mickie and the rest of the world a favour by putting her out of her misery once and for all. She says Mickie will only need to look up at the lights one more time, before she can crawl away from the spotlight, and under a rock, where no one will miss, remember or care about her - to rot.

Phoenix gets back up, and leaves the ring, with Mickie covering her face, sobbing in the ring, unable to come to terms with the fact that she cant compete against the vastly superior Beth. Phoenix confidently strides up the ramp, stopping at the stage, and poses with the title belt, holding it aloft, as we fade out…

Commercial Break

The video opens with a dictionary, opening up spookily, and the pages turn, eventually stopping, as the camera then zooms in on the word; NEMESIS, and the thesaurus, reading the words…

Backstage, the ragged looking Mickie James walks through the hallway, trailing her feet, lost in her own world, before being stopped again by Gail Kim. Kim grabs Mickie by the shoulders, trying to get through to Mickie, giving her a shake and telling her it’s not just the title and the series with Beth at stake on Sunday, “IT‘S YOUR CAREER - YOUR LIVELIHOOD ON THE LINE!!!” She tells Mickie that after everything she’s worked for and everything she’s fought to accomplish, she risks blowing it all - all because of Beth Phoenix … then SLAPS Mickie!!!!!

Again, she tells the former champion that she owes it to not just herself, but all the fans that have stood by her side and supported her in the last six months to give it her all. “And at least, if you give it your all and lose … at least you‘ll know, at least you‘ll be able to hold your head up high … but don’t give in. Not like this.” Gail sighs, but Mickie looks up at her, tears in her eyes, unable to bring herself to say anything, and instead nods, whispering “You‘re right”, with her voice unable to mutter the words properly, as we fade out…



Back into the arena…

**KENNEDY**

Entering for the main event - in terms of wrestling matches - Mister Kennedy strides to the ring, messing with his gum, shoving the camera out of his face, and slides inside, quickly reaching up for the old school mic. He goes through his routine, throwing in a dig about having to carry a useless nobody as his partner tonight, insisting that if Cena screws up tonight, he’ll give him extra punishment this Sunday at Nemesis.

**MY TIME IS NOW**

Having heard enough, Cena cuts in, and makes his way to the ring, saluting to the fans on his way, then rushes to the ring, sliding inside, and coming face to face with the cocky Kennedy, in Cenas face, smirking at Cena, trying to rile him. Cena keeps his cool though, and asks Kennedy “How‘s Miz??”, following last weeks beat down on Kennedys lackey. Kennedy doesn’t react though, simply shrugging his shoulders, trying to act unaffected…

**MEDAL**

The tension is lifted, as Kurt Angle enters, taking both mens focus. Angle makes his way to the ring, with J.R and Coach emphasising that it’s all on the line for Kurt this Sunday as he puts his Gold Medal up against Rey Mysterios Mask, reminding the fans that they have to team - NEXT!!!

Commercial Break

The show returns with Mysterio entering the ring, on the ropes, playing to the fans as Angle intently watches him, whilst Kennedy and Cena argue over who will start the match. Mysterio drops down, with Angle standing in his way, telling Rey to follow his orders, but Rey shakes his head, not interested in that.

Match 4:
Mister Kennedy & John Cena vs. Kurt Angle & Rey Mysterio
Strange contest, with Mysterio insisting he start for his team, whilst Kennedy looks set to start … but once he sees Rey, he decides to play with Cena, tagging him in, wanting him to go at it with another fan favourite - Rey Mysterio. Cena and Rey meet in the middle, sharing a few words, accepting the situation they’re in, slap hands, then circle, going at it, with Cena the stronger man, but Rey much quicker. It’s very much a back and forth meeting, as Cena is left swinging at air at times, but eventually catches Rey with a sidewalk slam!!! Cena scores a two with that, and begins to have his way with the smaller man, but cant put him away. He offers a tag to Kennedy, with Kennedy taking a moment to think about it … before accepting.

Kennedy continues the beating, stomping away at Rey, hammering him down in the corner, eventually running his boot through the masked lucha with a face wash. He looks to make a cover, dragging Rey out, looking up, expecting Angle to break the cover - but Kurt doesn’t move an inch - 1...2...SHOULDER UP!!! Rey survives, and starts to fight back at Kennedy, ducking a clothesline first before taking out the legs of the 2006 King of the Ring. He looks set to tag out, reaching for Angle - needing Kurt to do the same as Kennedy grabs Reys ankle - but Kurt stands still, reminding Rey that HE wanted to start the match … so he can finish it too. Rey is eventually brought down by Kennedy, and is hammered by him, then thrown outside the ring. As he exits to continue the beating though, Cena stands in his way, leading to a Kennedy - Cena stand off, unable to come to blows, as we head into a commercial.

Commercial Break

{/SECOND HOUR}

Raw returns, with Kennedy in control of Rey again, as we are told that during the commercial, the stand off between Cena and Kennedy eventually came to nothing, with Cena preventing Kennedy from doing real damage to Rey. Back inside, he tagged in Cena, who reluctantly continued the beat down, before tagging out again. Back live, Kennedy has Rey trapped in a headlock, backing him back into the corner and tags in Cena again. Reluctantly again, Cena wears Mysterio down, then hip tosses him, before instructing Angle to make a tag. Angle refuses, but after more goading from Cena, Angle blows his top, slapping the back of the weakened Rey, and in he comes. Kurt and Cena lock horns, battling around the ring, tussling around the ropes, with Kennedy making a blind tag off Cena when they reach his corner.

Kennedy steps inside, sneaking up behind Angle, and clubbing his back. Kennedy hammers down the Olympian, with Cena unhappy at the tactics of his partner/rival, and Kennedy quickly blows off the moans from Cena by feigning tears, before getting back to Angle. He beats Kurt against the ropes, then looks for an Irish whip, but Kurt manages to counter, with Rey springing off the ropes … but Kennedy ducks under … and MYSTERIO CRASHES ONTO ANGLE INSTEAD!!!!! Mysterio gets up, hand over his mouth in shock, but doesn’t have long to think - as Kennedy blindsides him, knocking Rey down!!! Kennedy then picks Angle up off the ground, looking to deliver the Mic Check, but Angle elbows free - BELLY TO BELLY!!!!! However … instead of following up on Kennedy … ANGLE APPLIES THE ANKLELOCK - ON MYSTERIO!!!!!
Winners: No Contest @ 11:11

The official calls for the bell, ending the bout as Angle BREAKS the edict brought down by Eric Bischoff, ripping away at Mysterio with the ankle lock … with the fans imploring Cena - stood on the apron - to come to Reys aide … but Cena doesn’t - as he knows it means he too would break the ruling, and his #1 Contenders match with Kennedy would likely be cancelled.

The fans begin to boo, as Cena stands on the apron - torn - but before he can make a final decision, Rey is able to kick Kurt away, sending Angle tumbling through the ropes. Rey hobbles back to his feet, watching Kurt get back up outside, and LAUNCHES HIMSELF OVER THE TOP ONTO ANGLE ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!!!!!

J.R & Coach both worry that the match between the pair will now be off at Nemesis, as Rey and Angle trade blows on the outside, working the fight over the barrier, and into the crowd - eventually out of view. Cena, meanwhile, begins to make his way up the aisle, getting some heat from a section of fans … but is stopped … as Kennedy grabs a mic, bellowing; “GET YOUR ASS BACK TO THIS RING, JOHN!!”

Cena slowly turns, with Kennedy willing him back to the ring, telling Cena he has a few things to get off his chest, and wants Cena to look him in the eye as he says it, promising it wont get violent, making a dig that he wants Cena to make it to Sunday. Cena walks back down the aisle, mouthing off to Kennedy, as we fade, with the confrontation coming up - NEXT!!!

Commercial Break

We return with Cena now in the ring, staring down the grinning Kennedy, who questions his rival, “You‘re dyin to knock my block off, huh??” Cena nods, mouthing “You betcha ass.” Kennedy nods, but slowly stops smiling, as he tells Cena he feels the exact same way. Kennedy explains that he has been on a crusade to step over anyone and everyone on Raw in order to make it to the top - “just like - whether you‘ll admit it or not - you did”, stating that he took too long expecting to get the big breaks on his talent alone, and realised he needed to stop waiting for them - and just take instead.

Kennedy steps up into Cenas space, telling Cena he thought he’d done enough to send him packing off to Smackdown, forcing Cena to tap at Summerslam, and says he was ready to then move on to ridding the WWE of Triple H - but Lesnar beat him to it - and says Cena “came back for more.” Kennedy asks Cena if he didn’t get enough at Summerslam when he made him tap, “or are you just a glutton for punishment??” Cena smirks, asking for a mic from Kennedy - who tells Cena to go and get his own, and that does get a cheer from the vocal males. Cena smirks, shaking his head, then motions to the outside for a mic, and is handed it, allowing him to speak.

Cena laughs over the mic initially, then asks Kennedy if he’s delusional, reminding him that he took a camera to his shoulder at Summerslam, which is the only reason he tapped. Cena then tells Kennedy that come Nemesis, he hasn’t got Miz by his side, and the element of surprise is gone; “You already played your best hand. You aint got any more surprises up your sleeve to shock me.” Cena steps forward, and tells Kennedy that come Sunday, it’s time for payback - and it’s time for Cena to humiliate Kennedy. He tells Kennedy he’s had to wait long enough to get back on track, but he wont let the opportunity slip at Nemesis, stating that he WILL be the next #1 Contender.

Kennedy shakes his head now. He smirks, before telling Cena “I’m not delusional - but if you think you‘re beating me on Sunday - you sure as hell are.” The Monday Night Juggernaut explains that Cena has already been proven to be nothing more than a ‘flash in the pan’ who miraculously negotiated one last hurrah as a top tier player. Kennedy reminds Cena that in his last two PPV matches, he has tapped, and until Bischoff moved heaven and earth to keep him, “you hadn’t just fallen off the radar, you‘d fallen off the face of the earth.” He goes on to tell Cena that his comeback ends in spectacular fashion at Nemesis.

Of course, Cena disagrees with that, admitting that he’s had a bad year; losing the title at WrestleMania, tapping at consecutive PPV events - but says it’s all about to change. Cena states that he isn’t a flash in the pan on the way out - he’s just about to turn the corner and prove to the world - but especially Kennedy - that he is still the TOP guy in the WWE today. Cena then tells Kennedy if he wants to be “the man” he’ll have to find a different path, “because you aint making your name at my expense. See ya Sunday.” Cena then dumps the mic, and brushes by Kennedy, then exit’s the ring, setting the stage for the Streetfight at Nemesis.

Commercial Break

**VIDEO PACKAGE**

The video opens very cinematically, on a huge ship, in the middle of the ocean, with the ships name seen - RMS Titanic.

The video cuts to the bow of the ship, where two men - clearly dressed from the early 1900’s - are looking ahead at the beautiful scenery. In a clear rip off of a scene from the James Cameron blockbuster film ‘Titanic’, the Leonardo DiCaprio look-a-like climbs up, leaning over the edge…

Young Man: WOOO!!!

Second Man: I can see the statue of liberty already … very small of course.

Beaming with a smile, the first man continues to stand up on the railing, over the edge of the ship.

Young Man: I’M THE KING OF THE WORRRRRRRLLLLDDDD!!!! WOOO!!! WOO HOO!!!!! WOOOOO!!! YEE-HAAAAW!!! AWOOO-

~ SMACK!!!

The young man gets smashed from behind with a steel chair, and topples over the edge, and falls into the sea!!! The camera fans from the second mans point of view, showing … BRENT ALBRIGHT holding the chair!!! Albright smirks, faking to hit the second man with a chair, with the man running off in fear. Albright steps forward, peering over the edge of the ship, and with a smirk…

Brent Albright: Well I’m the King of the Ring, Jack.

The Survivor Series logo then flashes across the screen.

Narrator: On November 11, the WWE presents Hollywoods Biggest Blockbuster of 2007 … The Twenty first annual SURVIVOR SERIES!!! And the WWE superstars are tearing up the script!!

***



Backstage, Eric Bischoff is fuming in his office, with Kurt Angle and Rey Mysterio both in the room, with agents and officials standing between the pair. Eric lets rip at both men, telling them they’ve disrespected his direct orders for the second time. He shakes his head in anger, then informs the two that it’s simply too late to cancel the match at Nemesis and suspend them, which leaves him no other alternative than to issue RECORD fines to the pair; $200,000 EACH … to which both men begrudgingly accept. Bischoff sees the reactions, and decides he hasn’t punished them enough, telling both men … that neither man will be allowed to challenge for ANY title of any kind for the remainder of 2007!!!!!

Both Angle and Mysterio are livid, arguing that that’s too much, but Eric wont listen, and orders both men out, as Angle is led away first, shouting that Rey will suffer for this come Nemesis. Before Rey is ushered out, Eric calls him back. Bischoff then explains to Rey that Shawn Michaels has requested that Rey be in the Survivor Series team - but Eric isn’t sure, given how deeply personal the issue with Angle is - who is already in the team. Bischoff says he needs Rey and Angle to finish their issue once and for all on Sunday if Rey wants to be part of the team. Mysterio nods, telling Eric he will end the Angle rivalry “for sure” at Nemesis, and will be a part of Team Raw, before leaving the room, as Bischoff huffs in anger.



Match 5:
Ken Doane w/Jerry Lawler vs. Domino w/Deuce
Domino is given a chance to job on Raw in singles action, as Doane and Lawler show unity in a filler match, giving the announcers a chance to reset the show. During the match, Lawler hears a faint “GOLD-DUST” chant from the fans, and eggs it on, building it louder, as footage cuts backstage to Cody Rhodes watching on a monitor, going nuts at the chants. Doane (obviously) wins the match, hitting his top rope leg drop to score the 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Ken Doane @ 02:47

Doane and the Hall of Famer Lawler stand in the ring, looking strong heading into Nemesis on Sunday, as the camera cuts again backstage, where Cody Rhodes is no longer stood - but the television monitor has been thrown to the floor - likely in anger.

Commercial Break

In the ring, The Brotherhood are stood six strong, with Theodore Long standing front and centre with a mic in hand, ahead of a six man tag match. Long talks about last weeks show, where Matt Hardy earned his shot at Shelton Benjamin at Nemesis, then announced it would be inside a steel cage. Long gives Hardy credit, telling him it was a smart idea, as a steel cage isn’t a natural environment for an athlete like Shelton, before accusing Hardy of knowing that he isn’t in Sheltons league, reminding the fans that all summer, he couldn’t take the Intercontinental Title from the Black Diamond.

“Playa, you failed at Vengeance, you failed on Raw, failed when the Brotherhood were unfairly banned from ringside, failed in a 30 minute Iron Man Match, and failed at Summerslam too” Without mentioning that Regal in fact won that match, Theodore repeats over and over that Matt is a failure, and laughs that Hardy has ANOTHER crack at the gold on Sunday.

Long states that even though a steel cage isn’t where an athlete like Shelton Benjamin belongs, he WILL take the challenge on, and WILL thrive under the adversity, stepping into an “animalistic coliseum” which suit’s a bloodthirsty sick freak like Hardy. Long then announces that Sunday IS Matt Hardys last chance, going back to all the title shots over the Summer, telling the fans that Matt has had more than enough chances - and after Shelton beats him AGAIN on Sunday, he wont get another shot for as long as Shelton holds the title … “and that‘ll be a long time playa.”

**LIVE FOR THE MOMENT**

Hardy has heard enough, and steps onto the stage with a mic in hand, cutting the music and says he’s fine with this being his and Benjamins final encounter, bringing the challenge that seeing as he believes he wont need another shot after Sunday, he asks them to prove their confidence, “Teddy, if you‘re as confident in your boy as I am in myself … why don’t we say that Sunday truly is our Final Encounter. You win, I‘ll never hunt you guys down again. But if I beat Shelton … he gets no rematch.”

Hardy has called the bluff of Theodore Long!! Longs face drops at the prospect, ad turns to consult his group … but Hardy keeps on, wanting Long to bite, purposefully putting himself down as not being in Sheltons league, reminding Long he couldn’t beat The Black Diamond all summer. Long eventually has heard enough, and accepts the challenge from Hardy - it will truly be the final Benjamin vs. Hardy encounter at Nemesis!!!

In the ring, Benjamin is throwing a fit, showing that perhaps the group aren’t as confident over victory as they’ve let on. Long is still pent up after being prodded into accepting Matts challenge, and orders Hardy to get to the ring for the match, as the music of the East Coast Party Boys plays, bringing out Matts partners for the evening, as we head into a commercial break first…

Main Event | SIX MAN TAG TEAM MATCH:
The Brotherhood w/Theodore Long, Shelton Benjamin & Alicia Fox vs. Matt Hardy & The East Coast Party Boys
Joined in progress, the Party Boys show themselves to be worthy of being on Matts team, holding their own against the Brotherhood. However, once Mark Henry is brought in, the match changes, with Ryder and Hawkins unable to match up with the Worlds Strongest Man. Benjamin watches from the outside, getting into a war of words with Hardy. As the Brotherhood trio of Henry, Brown & JTG work over Hawkins, Hardy desperately searches for a tag, and after a mix up between Monty and JTG, Hawkins is able to escape the beat down … and tag in Hardy!!!

Hardy rushes in, hitting clothesline after clothesline to JTG and Brown, throwing Brown outside, then nails JTG with a Side Effect … before coming face to face with the Worlds Strongest Man!! Hardy takes a step back after barely making a dent in the big man … but Ryder and Hawkins come to his aide before Henry can do anything to Matt, both going low with dropkicks to the knees, taking Henry down, and forcing him out of the ring, coming out after him. Meanwhile, Monty is back inside, and looks to surprise Matt with a Pounce … BUT MISSES!!! Brown stumbles back … RIGHT INTO THE TWIST OF FATE!!! He covers, 1...2...3!!!
Winners: Matt Hardy & The East Coast Party Boys @ 07:24

Hardy picks up the win, with the outside factors taking too long to react to stop him from picking up the three count. Hardy continues to gain momentum heading to this Sunday and the steel cage match with Benjamin, as The Brotherhood look to regroup in the ring. Hardy stands on the ramp, with the ECPB patting his back, telling him good job, as he smirks, looking back at the dishevelled Brotherhood, as we fade out.



Christian walks through the backstage area, gearing up for the final segment up next; The Playas Club, where the champ comes face to face with Umaga and the wheelchair bound Estrada … NEXT!!!!!

Commercial Break

The ring is set up for Coaches talk show, and the colour commentator of Raw welcomes the fans to HIS show, telling them to expect fireworks as the two men set to main event Nemesis this Sunday come face to face in “the Summerslam rematch that the world is dying to see.” He introduces Big Zeke on the outside to keep order, before denouncing the actions of Christian last week, calling him ‘pathetic’ for the cheap tactics he chose on “a genius, but defenceless manager”. Coach then declares Armando Estrada a “brave warrior” for being here tonight, giving AAE a glowing introduction as the man behind the monster, UMAGAAAA!!!

**VIRTUAL VOODOO**

Wheeling out his injured handler, Umaga is quick down the aisle, forcing AAE to yell at him to slow down, nearly throwing the mouthpiece off the chair. After a long process, Estrada is helped into the ring, and set back in his chair. Coach welcomes the pair to the show, sucking up to AAE, again commending him on his bravery for even being here after Christian tried to put him out of action last week. AAE accepts the praise from Coach, saying that despite all the pain and broken bones, he wouldn’t miss being at Nemesis - and seeing Umagas ultimate moment of glory - for anything on the planet.

Coach continues to kiss ass, calling Armando “an inspiration”, and gives Estrada a chance to talk about the injuries he received last week. AAE goes over the internal injuries, slipped discs in his back, and a cracked sternum … “and as a result, THE- … MY Samoan Bulldozer wont just defeat that weak, pathetic, so called champion … but he will make Christian SUFFER like I have suffered!!!” Estrada goes on to remind Coach - and the fans - that Christian got lucky and dodged the bullet at Summerslam, but states that lightning wont strike twice, claiming that there is NO WAY that Christian can beat Umaga again.

**JUST CLOSE YOUR EYES**

The champion has heard enough, and makes his way to the ring after posing to the fans on the stage, with J.R telling us that we’ll hear from Christian - next.

Commercial Break

Christian is in the ring, with AAE having to call Umaga off, as the Bulldozer appears to be chomping at the bit for a piece of his conqueror at Summerslam. Christian addresses Coaches claims, telling him that he holds the richest prize in professional wrestling, and he’ll do whatever it takes to give himself as good a chance as possible to keep it at Nemesis. Christian puts over Umaga, not ignoring the fact that there was a hint of luck behind his win at Summerslam, and states that having Ricky Hatton in his corner was a perfect equalizer for Estrada being in Umagas … “so when the opportunity presented itself to even the playing field at Nemesis by taking out Estrada - I took that chance with both hands.”

{/OVERRUN}

Captain Charisma reminds Coach that he’s never painted himself as a whiter than white goody too shoes, and when a chance comes around like it did last week to gain some kind of advantage - he’ll take it every time. He also reminds the fans that he’s a firm believer in “what comes around goes around”, and after Estrada presided over Umagas senseless beat down on Rhyno two weeks ago, “karma was due to come-a-knockin on Mister Estradas door.”

Coach shakes his head, telling Christian he should be ashamed of his actions, stating that if he weren’t about to have his title reign ended by Umaga in six days, he’d personally start a petition to have him removed as champion. In a brief moment of fun, Christian snaps back, telling Coach he should be ashamed of his unashamed ass kissing - “and you should feel lucky that I don’t start a petition to have you removed from the commentary booth, because that bad boy would have millions of signatures”.

Coach ignores that, and tells Christian not to get off point, telling him he owes Armando an apology for last week. Christian laughs that suggestion off, informing The Coach that the only thing he’s sorry about is that he obviously didn’t go far enough last week. Estrada has now heard enough, piping up, laughing as he tells Christian to “laugh pero. Laugh now. Because the laughing STOPS for ju at Nemesis. Dis Sunday … the joke is on JU!! At Nemesis, Umaga and I will be laughing at JU … when Umaga makes como se dice … MINCE MEAT out of JU!!!”

Estrada smiles, as Christian stares the wheelchair bound mouthpiece down. He softly speaks, admitting that that might well be the case. “Umaga might beat me. He might make (puts on an awful AAE impression) ‘como se dice’ MINCEMEAT outta me … but then again … he might not.” Christian turns his attention to the snarling Samoan Bulldozer, talking about Umaga as he stares him down, saying Umaga might not beat him and that perhaps once again HE will prevail over the Samoan Bulldozer, looking him in the eyes, saying that he isn’t scared.

The champ turns his attention back to the handler, and tells AAE that he’s taken everything that Umaga has to offer and took the beating of a lifetime at Summer slam … “but I‘ve still got this. And come Sunday, I‘ll fight this Bulldozer all the way to keep THIS. If he‘s gonna be champion, he‘ll have to take this belt and earn it the hard way - ‘cause after seven months on top, you can bet your ass I aint goin down without a fight.” The fans cheer for the fighting words of the champion, who stands tall, as Estrada rubs his face.

Armando nods, telling Christian he admires his spirit … but says that eventually a time has to come where he admits that he’s simply outmatched … “not only by the sheer power of Umaga … but by my intelligence. Because pero, I didn’t want ju out here tonight for one last showdown. HA HA- no, no, no. I wanted ju out here for one last BEATDOWN!!!” Christian looks confused, knowing the ruling from Bischoff prevents Umaga from attacking him, and looks around at Umaga, waiting for the #1 Contender to strike him - but he doesn’t. Estrada laughs over the mic, telling Christian, “I‘m always two moves ahead hombre. Enjoy ju‘re last six nights as champion.”

As BIG ZEKE CLOBBERS CHRISTIAN FROM BEHIND - WITH A CHAIR TO THE BACK!!!!! Christian tumbles down, with Zeke standing over him - crashing the chair across Captain Charismas back again!!! On commentary, J.R is throwing a fit, saying that this isn’t right, explaining that Big Zeke isn’t contracted by the WWE, but is paid for by Coach privately - and therefore doesn’t have to follow The GM’s edict!!! Estrada merrily laughs, as Zeke slams the chair over the champions back a third time.

Zeke drags Christian up, and drives through him with a devastating short arm clothesline. Coach smiles and nods, obviously having played a part in the master plan, as Zeke drags Christian up once more, holding him in front of AAE, who talks trash, before Big Zeke gets Christian up - into a TORTURE RACK!!!!! Zeke stretches the champion on his shoulders, as Estrada claps, enjoying what he sees, before the big enforcer finally relents, and drops Christian to the canvas. Coach hands the title belt to Umaga, who stands over the broken champion, raising the title belt aloft, while placing a foot on his battered torso - a sombre image … of what’s to come?? Raw fades out, with Umaga standing tall over the champion…

Default Re: Being The Booker

CM PUNK! CM PUNK! CM PUNK! YEAHHH! Great win for the Chicago crowd here to kick off the show, which makes me expect we'll have a big downer ending tonight with an Umaga beat down or something along those lines...even though there is the no contact rule...hmm...On a side note, one pet peeve I've had with this thread and with OVW was the use of Miseria Cantare when CM Punk is more of an upbeat character. To me that song fits the darker a-hole Punk more. Anyways, that's that.

I liked Cody Rhodes's comment that he has to follow two jokes, good way to build up his heel persona. And hopefully, Cody Rhodes will get what's comin' to hem if ya will at the PPV!

Yay Katie, cost the heel of the feud his match!

Hmm...I don't think this was the right move to make. I think the anticipation for the Nemesis match was the question of whether or not Mickie could make a come back to defeat Beth. Now that she got squashed by a non-Beth Phoenix wrestler, I feel the heat for the feud has completely dissipated here. I think the segment with Phoenix taunting Mickie alone would of been the better approach to go.

JOHN CENA CARES ABOUT HIS MATCH MORE THAN BEING A SUPERHERO??? :O CHARACTER DEPTH! Loved this finish and I love that Angle/Mysterio is the feud that breaks the edict, I think that builds a lot of great heat for the feud. I think the Kennedy notes here was decent and I think you have a lot of potential once you get to full promos with him again. I doubt the Angle/Mysterio rivalry will be ending at Nemesis. With neither person having the ability to go after titles now and with the fire behind this feud I just can't see it ending, but maybe you will.

Superstars quality match with a Superstars quality ending...

YAY! THE BROTHAHOOD! Get 'em Teddy! Now Benjamin just needs to beat that honky at Nemesis and Benjamin will be ridin' to THE TOP, YA DIG?

BOO! BOO! BOO! You know it! Funny that all these jobbers are in the main event before a PPV XD, but it brings the mood down for the finish so its good show pacing I suppose. Nothing much to say here.

Good finish for the show with the sneak attack from Big Zeke since he isn't really a contracted wrestler. Really looking forward to the Nemesis PPV.

I thought this was a great RAW. Though I think you definitely blew it with the women's match, everything else seemed to come together great to build up Nemesis.

Default Re: Being The Booker

Punk/Albright/Daniels? Damn, that's a great RAW match. Fun read and a really hot opener to the show. Good to see Punk get the feel good win, have a feeling he'll be getting his singles push by WrestleMania. I like Straight Edge, but the Craftsmen and Angels can definitely carry the division in the future.

I really like the Cody Rhodes character, bashing on Harry Smith for failing to live up to Davey Boy's name was a very nice touch. The tag team match at Nemesis should make for some decent filler, have a feeling Dustin will turn on Cody but I also feel that there are bigger things in store for Cody in the near future. Not sure about Ken Doane's future, however.

Good win for Rhodes heading into Nemesis without making Smith look weak. Nobody should look weak a week before a PPV unless you are playing up the underdog angle, ala Christian/Umaga. I'm looking forward to Burchill/Smith, two guys who would rarely make the cut on a PPV but have some serious talent.

The Mickie James angle is a good example of when to make someone look weak heading into a PPV. Losing to jobbers like Maryse makes a sweep at Nemesis almost inevitable, which will make for one hell of a moment should you opt for the upset and have Mickie steal a win and get back into the series. Good storytelling.

The strange bedfellows match sounds like some chaotic fun. I love both of these feuds, even moreso than Christian/Umaga. Mysterio and Angle breaking the rules and putting their match at stake is great booking, just shows how much raw hatred the two have for each other. So personal they're throwing all caution to the wind. Love it. And a nice, much needed final showdown between Cena and Kennedy before Nemesis. I loved the dig at Triple H, wonder how long you'll keep dangling HHH/Kennedy in front of us before we finally get it. It'll be a brilliant feud. This Cena/Kennedy match seems a lot more important for Cena, which is why I seem him taking it. This is essentially Cena's lost shot at the big time for a while, and Kennedy won't be hurt much because he already holds a win over Cena and has a potential upcoming program with Triple H in store anyway. Very excited to read these guys tearing each other limb from limb.

Wow, no title shots for either Angle or Mysterio to chase after. One has to wonder where else they can go if they can't focus on championships? Have to think this could backfire on Bischoff, just building the hatred and leaving them with no other options. Mysterio is a predictable but solid addition to Team RAW, definitely interested in seeing how he and Angle will work together at Survivor Series. Bischoff is taking a big risk if he puts both on the same team, with the stakes he's facing.

Doesn't get more jobber than this match, but it does its job giving Doane some credibility going into the tag team match. I forgot Deuce & Domino were even still around, tbh.

Even though Hardy isn't all that interesting, his feud with Benjamin has been superb and the steel cage stipulation is fantastic. Really hope Benjamin keeps the gold, as I love The Brotherhood and Hardy only allows for so much with a relatively flat character. This has been an excellent midcard feud, and hopefully we get a definitive ending to it. Again, love the raw intensity of each feud for Nemesis, fits the PPV name so perfectly.

Lmao, I love The Coach. He is one of my favorite parts of RAW. Another classic showdown between Christian and Umaga, best babyface/monster feud in BTB that I can recall. The heelsgetting the final beatdown was necessary and he regains some of the steam Umaga lost at SummerSlam. Christian looks firmly the underdog again.

Great show, pumped for Nemesis.

Friday Night Smackdown | October 12 2007 | Chicago IL


Recap video of events from last week, when RIC FLAIR made a shocking return to save Arn Anderson from a Randy Orton punt kick.

Opening Video

Pyro

Batista vs. The Undertaker is hyped up by Joey Styles and Paul Heyman, as after almost two months of tensions rising, the two big dogs go at it, one on one - tonight on Smackdown…

Arn Anderson is in the ring, and addresses the audience, telling the fans that “it gives me great pride to have the privilege to introduce to you fans - the SIXTEEN time World Champion, The Nature Booooy - RIC FLAIR!!!”

**ALSO SPRACH ZARATHUSTRA**

The reaction for the Nature Boy is simply deafening. Strutting like only Flair can, he makes his way down the aisle, stopping by a group of fans who bow at the presence of the greatest of all time. Flair smirks, enjoying the adulation. He eventually joins Arn in the ring, sharing a hug with his best friend. Anderson hands the mic over to Ric, giving him the ring, and steps back. After waiting out a LOT of cheers and WOOO chants - and after wiping a tear from his eye - Flair declares how great it is to be back, telling the fans how much he missed them all. He stops, with more cheers and a ‘WELCOME BACK’ chant takes over, making the old man more emotional.

Flair talks about his nearly year long hiatus from the WWE, reminding the fans that he was broken - mentally - by Randy Orton and the New Wave, after they kicked him out of the group, and beat him at last years Survivor Series. He talks about how he had handpicked four men to lead a new generation of the Four Horsemen, with Orton set to lead the group for the next decade, and had it all thrown back in his face, “the experience, the guidance, the knowledge, the advice … all the wisdom I had to pass down to the new generation … tossed aside” as Orton led Cade & Dinsmore (and later Doane) away to form the New Wave.

Flair explains that the betrayal hurt him more than he cared to express, and the way in which he was comprehensively dispatched of at last years Survivor Series led him to believe his time was up. He talks about feeling he couldn’t even announce his retirement on Raw due to fear of being interrupted and humiliated even more by Orton and the New Wave. “For nearly a year, I have sat in my home, watching, week after week, Randy Orton disrespecting his peers, disrespecting his elders, disrespecting LEGENDS … And I. Have. Seen. Enough!!!” Flair declares that he isn’t a young man anymore, but he’s still the dirtiest player in the game and-

**VOICES**

Interrupting the promo, WWE Champion Randy Orton skulks onto the stage looking unhappy. He doesn’t walk to the ring and instead paces the entrance way, complaining that Flair doesn’t belong here anymore. Orton accuses Flair of tarnishing his legacy with every old man strut, every tired WOOO and every next wife he adds to the collection. Orton claims that Flair should have his own wing in the Hall of Fame, but with each and every embarrassing comeback, the chances of that happening decreases, bit by bit. Sarcastically, Orton questions Arn (still taking a back seat in the ring) if by just showing up after a year, is Ric Flair the new #1 Contender

But before Anderson can reply, Flair hit’s the roof. Naitch calls Orton a selfish, ungrateful punk, who should kiss the feet of the GM instead of talking down to him like something on the bottom of his shoe. Flair answers the question for Orton, telling the champion he isn’t - and wont be - #1 Contender … but he is back for one thing - revenge against Orton … “and I want to teach you a lesson in respect, you no good son of a bitch!!” Anderson steps in, patting Flair on the back and addresses the WWE Champion, confirming that Flair wont challenge Orton for his title, but at the Survivor Series they will both lead a team of five for a traditional elimination match!!!

“And after the stunts - the crap - you‘ve pulled this past year, Orton … lets see how many friends you‘ve still got around here. Because I can guarantee Orton, I. GUAR-AN-TEE, that the minute I walk through that curtain, there‘s gonna be a heap of guys lining the halls wanting a piece of you!! And come Survivor Series … you‘re gonna bleed, you‘re gonna sweat … and as God as my witness Orton - you‘re gonna pay the price of a wrestling lifetime!!!” Flair - in a fit - throws the mic out of the ring at toward the ramp, as Orton stands stoic, faced with the challenge of finding five men to team with him in five weeks at the Survivor Series…

Commercial Break

During the entrances for the opening match, there is an inset promo from the undefeated Nick Nemeth, explaining that he issued the challenge to Paul London tonight in order to prove that HE is the real Golden Boy on Smackdown.

On his way to the ring, Nemeth sports his own ‘Golden Boy’ t-shirt, while it is noted that despite this non-title match, Arn Anderson has already signed off on a U.S Title match in two weeks time between London and the impressive ‘Lone Star’ Garrison Cade, earning a shot through his streak of wins over The Animal, Batista in the past month.

Match 1 | NON-TITLE MATCH:
Paul London vs. Nick Nemeth
Still undefeated, Nick Nemeth is thrust into a major match, and more than holds up his end of the bargain. The two put on a clinic, albeit in a condensed manner with the pair not getting the kind of time they’d like. Nemeth is equal to London in every way, proving that while he’s clearly got a great opinion of himself, he’s got the tools to back it up. Nemeth isn’t able to put the U.S Champion away though, and when he looks to hit the Ego Boost, London avoids it, then drops Nemeth with a heel kick. London climbs up top, wanting the 450 Splash … BUT NEMETH STICKS HIS KNEES UP!!!!! London writhes, and struggles to his feet … EGO BOOST!!!!! Nemeth covers both legs tightly, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Nick Nemeth @ 11:12

Huge - HUGE win for still undefeated Nick Nemeth … he just beat the UNITED STATES CHAMPION!!! The Narcissist rolls out of the ring, grabbing the U.S Title, and proudly holds it aloft - even though he hasn’t won it - and rolls back into the ring, parading around the ring, and each turnbuckle, holding the belt, before eyeing the recovering Paul London by the ropes.

Nemeth walks toward him, and shoving the title belt into the chest of the groggy champion, telling London “your days are numbered - GOLDEN BOY!!!” before dropping out of the ring, and paces up the aisle, delighted with his biggest win to date tonight, whilst in the ring, London watches on, having been outperformed on the night by the cocky Nemeth…

Commercial Break

Backstage, Josh Mathews is with Batista ahead of tonight’s main event. The Animal looks hyped up, and ready to go, bouncing on the spot, as Josh asks him about how he’s feeling with the biggest test of his singles career coming up later. Batista tells Josh he’s never been better prepared or more focused, claiming to be ready to take down The Deadman - which gets a mixed (but mainly negative) reaction.

Big Dave again makes apologies for costing Taker the title two weeks ago, stating that he hasn’t forgotten about Cade’s involvement in that; “but I‘ll see him soon enough” … and after issuing that apology, he says that although the circumstances leading to the match were less than ideal, he’s wanted to face The Undertaker “for a long time”, before promising to make his mark and make a statement tonight.

Just as the interview looks set to be over, Batista sees someone off camera, and pushes by Josh, excusing himself, but as he walks away, Josh motions to the cameraman to follow, and we see The Animal approaching BROCK LESNAR down the hallway!!! Batista calls out to Lesnar, and doesn’t waste time, questioning Brock as to why he wasn’t asked to be the first pick on Team Smackdown last week. Before Lesnar can even respond though, Batista cuts him off, “hell, never mind being YOUR first pick - I should‘ve been CAPTAIN!!”

Brock doesn’t take the jibe personally though, simply telling The Animal to take that up with Arn Anderson, but does offer Batista a spot on the team for Survivor Series. Batista takes a moment to think, looking down at Lesnars hand which is extended for a handshake - and eventually accepts it, whilst still maintaining he should’ve been on the team already, stating “took you long enough to ask.” Batista then walks off, muttering under his breath, as Brock smirks, shouting “good luck later” to the pumped up Animal.



Match 2:
MNM w/Melina vs. The James Boys w/Layla El
Short match, with MNM making their Smackdown debut, and getting off to a winning start. Despite changing the country boys look to something more flashy, Layla is unable to change the fortunes of the James Boys, as they are unable to live with the former world tag team champions. Melina sees off the threat of Layla El, whilst Nitro and Mercury - now playing to the fans - are able to bust out some high flying, exciting spots to get the fans pumping, and on their side. During the contest, AMW & Michelle McCool step onto the stage to get a better view of the newest team on the Smackdown scene, and their presence seems to spur MNM on further, and they finish off Kacey with the Snapshot for the 1...2...3!!!
Winners: MNM @ 04:13

MNM are back in action - and off to a winning start in their new home of Smackdown, with Melina joining Nitro and Mercury in the ring, as Layla is stamping her feet, losing her patience with the still winless James Boys. In the ring, MNM eye the champions, with Nitro and Mercury both pushing their bellies out to make fun of the champs, whilst Melina poses, motioning around the waists of her two men that titles are coming to MNM…

Commercial Break

Backstage, Brock Lesnar is conversing with a worker whilst sipping on a bottle of water, heard saying that he just wants to get back in the ring to unleash his fury - as THE BRIAN KENDRICK approaches. Kendrick just hangs in the background initially, nodding as he pretends to listen to the conversation, then inserts himself into the chat … with Lesnar narrowing his eyebrows, not impressed with the cocky Cruiserweight champion interrupting.

Lesnar folds his arms, as Kendrick continues talking rubbish, talking about his title defence last week, and the adversity he faced to retain the title. Eventually, he realises that Lesnar isn’t interested in what he’s saying, and begins to laugh, admitting to “Mr. Lesnar” that “I‘m going on, aren‘t I??” Kendrick then takes the opportunity to introduce himself to Lesnar, “but I‘m sure you‘re already aware of who I am, huh”, showing off the cruiserweight title.

Kendrick offers a handshake, but Lesnar keeps his arms folded, leaving TBK to feel rather awkward; “Not a handshake guy, huh??”, he puts his hand away, before finally getting to his point, offering his services to Lesnar as a part of Team Smackdown at Survivor Series … but no sooner does he have the words out, does the Iron Man flatly respond with “no”. Brock then pats the worker on the shoulder, telling him he’ll see him later, and walks off. Left fuming, TBK blames the worker, and walks off in an opposite direction, muttering that Brock just made a huge mistake.



Elsewhere, Kristal Marshall catches up with a celebrating Nick Nemeth, who, after popping a cork on a bottle of champagne, twirls the interviewer around, and plants a quick lip lock on her, leaving Kristal dazed. He proclaims that tonight he proved to the world that Paul London - as good as he is - is no longer the Golden Boy of Smackdown; Nick Nemeth is. He talks about being a step quicker, sharper, tougher, smarter - and simply BETTER than the United States champion, declaring that he’s put London on notice, and EXPECTS a shot at the title next.



**ROAD TO TEXAS**

Garrison Cade enters the arena ahead of a singles match, after his last win two weeks ago over Batista - which didn’t go unnoticed by GM Arn Anderson, who has rewarded ’The Lone Star’ with a shot at Paul Londons U.S Title in two weeks time, with the match tonight coming up after the commercial…

Commercial Break

Match 3:
Garrison Cade vs. Hardcore Holly
Making a rare appearance on TV, Bob Holly gives Cade plenty to think about with his stiff, hard hitting style, but the result is never in doubt, even though it is a competitive match. The fight spills to the outside, but Cade is too big, strong and tough for Holly to have his way with, and the Lone Star reverses an Irish whip through the steps, before bringing Holly back inside - and drives through the veteran with a blood curdling HEART PUNCH!!! He covers, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Garrison Cade @ 04:56

Cade continues his impressive run on Smackdown, picking up a win over a tough veteran, having his hand raised in the air - perfect preparation for a U.S Title shot in two weeks time - whilst Holly remains flattened on the canvas from the shuddering Heart Punch.



As Cade leaves the ring, Styles and Heyman move on to discussing the ongoing situation between The Mad Murdochs and the Caribbean Connection, which escalated last week, when the Murdochs fought Carlito and Kofi in the parking lot, getting the better of the Caribbean pair with a tyre iron, as Styles and Heyman confirm that CCC & Kofi will miss tonight’s show - but WILL go head to head with Festus & Trevor next week on Smackdown, whilst the Murdochs have a tune up match later tonight.



Then, once Cade passes through the curtain to go backstage - he is met by Randy Orton, who tries to suck up to Cade, telling him how great a job he did moments ago, claiming to be proud of how The Lone Star has stepped up in recent months, stating that he always knew that this is what he was capable of, and that “I always said to Flair he was wrong about you. Y‘know, he said you were nothing more than a hired goon - a piece of muscle.”

Cade isn’t buying it though, and cuts Orton off just as he’s about to continue, telling the WWE Champion to “save it. I aint buyin whatever you got to say - I aint interested Randy.” Cade tells Orton he’s sick of being played, and sick of people thinking he can be manipulated. “I don’t care if Flair did say that - I don’t care if you made it up. If you‘re here tryin to talk me into bein on your stinkin team at Survivor Series?? Stick it. I got better things to be doin - MY things that benefit ME!!” Cade shoves past Orton, walking on, as the recruitment process begins badly for the WWE Champion.

Commercial Break

**MAN WITH A PLAN**

Back from the break, The Brian Kendrick is on his way to the ring, with Styles rightfully putting TBK over for his hard fought win to keep the Cruiserweight title last week on Smackdown, but makes sure to call him a self absorbed jackass in the process, as he comes to the ring.

{/SECOND HOUR}

Kendrick takes a mic, and once in the ring, he overstates his win last week, putting it on a par with any of Shawn Michaels accomplishments over the years; just as big as the 60 minute Iron Man Match win at WrestleMania, Hell in a Cell versus Taker, and coming back to beat Triple H after four and a half years off. Kendrick explains why he’s comparing his accomplishment last week to those of Shawns, stating that he should be on Team Smackdown at Survivor Series; “as I‘m the only guy with the same level of accomplishments as Shawn has”.

TBK then explains that Lesnar “blew me off” earlier when he offered his services, and issues a challenge to Brock to face “the greatest cruiserweight that‘s ever stepped between the ropes” next week, just to see what he’s missing from the team at Survivor Series. From there, Kendrick drives the point home that HE is the greatest cruiserweight of all time, reminding the fans that it isn’t just his opinion - but a fact, and his seven months as champion prove that fact; the longest reigning cruiserweight champ of all time.

Brian is distracted though, and glares at a face in the front row, going off topic, pointing outside “Hey- I recognise you.” He steps out of the ring, approaching the man in the front row, who nods, as Kendrick racks his brain, trying to think of the mans name. Initially, he comes up dry, but a portion of fans in the arena do cheer as the mans face is shown on the titan tron, with those fans recognising the face - as does Joey Styles. Kendrick explains to the fans that this man in the front row is also a wrestler … “just not as good as me.”

The man smirks at the snide comment, whilst Kendrick continues to belittle him, informing the audience that the man wrestles for much smaller promotions, “the kind of places I was quickly plucked from - I‘m simply too mainstream to wrestle in front of small crowds and local television.” As he continues, the name finally comes to him, and TBK blurts out, “DANIEL!! It‘s DANIEL, right!!??” The man in the front row still smiles, but shakes his head, pulling the mic over, “Not quite. Daniel-son. Bryan Danielson.”

Kendrick clicks his fingers, as if to say ‘I remember now’, and mocks Bryans surname, continually calling him “Daniel-san” in a bad Mr. Miyagi impression, but the indy wrestler laughs it off. Kendrick says it’s great that ‘Daniel-san’ isn’t bitter, seeing a guy like TBK making it this big, while he’s still small time, before simply assuming that he’s an inspiration for Bryan, telling the ‘kid’ that if he keeps plugging away, he might be plucked from obscurity one day too.

Danielson chuckles, and sarcastically tells TBK that he is an inspiration, and seeing him so successful in the WWE (whilst rolling his eyes, to show the fans he’s being insincere to the delusional champ) has given him belief that he might be able to make it too. Kendrick then butts in, saying “it‘s a nice dream to have Daniel-san, but don’t take it too hard if you don’t make it. I just make it look easy - but it‘s a hard place to make it as big as I have. This aint RO… whatever it is.”

“H. It‘s R-O-H. Ring of Honor.” chimes in Danielson. He then says he realises (again clearly sarcastically) he might not have the skills Kendrick has, and doubts he can ever be as big a star or as good a wrestler as TBK has become, but the reason he is in Chicago tonight is that next week he has an opportunity on Smackdown to earn a contract “and if I even just do well - because let‘s face it, I wont win a match in the big bad world of the WWE - if I do well, Arn Anderson says he might just give me a contract.”

Some of the fans cheer, and Kendrick looks impressed, stating that he’s glad Bryan has his feet on the ground. He then suggests to Danielson that perhaps - if he’s up for the task - that they bring his try out forward a week, and do it right here, right now on Smackdown, stating that if he can survive five minutes against the best cruiserweight of all time, he‘ll personally recommend Bryan to Arn Anderson for a contract. Danielson gauges the reaction of the fans, and with a positive reaction from the fans - HE ACCEPTS!!! TBK then instructs security to allow Bryan over the barrier, as Styles and Heyman set the stage for the 5 minute challenge - NEXT!!!

Commercial Break

Match 4 | NON-TITLE MATCH | 5 MINUTE CHALLENGE:
The Brian Kendrick vs. Bryan Danielson
The match is joined in progress, with a clock in the bottom left corner of the screen reading 04:01, with a minute already about to expire. Both men have their shirts off, and are wrestling in regular clothes, as Styles tries to educate the fans about Danielson, and has past, talking up ROH and Japan, letting the audience know that he isn’t short in experience. Kendrick though, treats Danielson like a rookie, taking liberties, mocking him. The smirk is soon wiped off the champions face though, as Danielson then begins to take over and show off his superior wrestling ability, tying TBK up in knots.

Kendrick is forced to bail from the ring, but laughs it off, trying not to show that he’s been rattled, with 02:30 remaining. Kendrick re-enters the ring, challenging the newcomer to a test of strength, but takes a cheap shot as Bryan goes for it, and the longest reigning CW champ ever takes control. Despite quick pin attempt after pin attempt, he cant put Danielson away, and as less than 60 seconds remain, Kendrick looks to deliver Sliced Bread … but Danielson counters with a side suplex … then applies a deadly looking submission - described by Joey Styles as CATTLE MUTILATION!!! Kendrick is trapped, and flails his trapped arms like crazy as time ticks down … AND HE SHOUTS “I SUBMIT!!”
Winner: Bryan Danielson @ 04:27

It’s a huge upset, and Danielson is beside himself in joy, getting the win over the humiliated champion!!! Danielson - who isn’t even under an official contract - has just beaten the Cruiserweight champion in less than five minutes - and he did it BY SUBMISSION!!! He has his hand raised in the air, whilst the champion recovers on the outside, looking in pain - both physically, and surely mentally too, with his ego taking a huge hit.

Danielson leaves the ring, not knowing whether he should go up the ramp, or take his seat back, with an official meeting him at the bottom of the ramp, ushering him towards the entrance, as he jovially salutes the fans, making his way through the curtain, whilst Kendrick sits against the steel steps, still looking in pain, before we fade out…

...

Backstage, Josh Mathews is now standing by with the United States Champion, Paul London. Mathews offers commiserations to the Golden Boy over his loss earlier in the night, and gives London a chance to explain what went wrong. London though, shakes his head, refusing to offer any excuses, telling Josh he isn’t carrying any injuries, he isn’t tired, and he was cheated … “the simple fact Josh, is that tonight, the better man won.”

London continues though, telling Josh that although he lost tonight, it doesn’t mean that if his path crosses Nemeths again, that the outcome will be the same. London agrees that a win over a champion is about as good a reason as any to earn a title shot, and if Nemeth does get a title shot off the back of his win tonight, “so be it … but next time I face Nemeth, whether my title is on the line or not - expect to see a different outcome altogether.”



Commercial Break

Match 5:
The Mad Murdoch Twins vs. Scotty Too Hotty & Shannon Moore
This is a squash. The heavily aggressive, dirty, physical Murdochs have their way with the thrown together jobbers, sending out a clear message to Carlito and Kofi for next week on Smackdown with a dominating victory. During the match, Styles discusses that a mystery ‘money man’ helped provide the medical requirements for Festus after his head injury at the hands of the Connection in August, and the medical work helped to cure Festus of his previous problems. Festus finishes the match with ease, drilling Shannon Moore with a firemans carry flapjack … 1...2...3!!!
Winners: The Mad Murdoch Twins @ 03:01

The twins are victorious, as they finally begin to gain some traction on Smackdown, and send out a clear message to Carlito and Kofi Kingston ahead of next weeks tag team showdown. The two men lean over the ropes, sending a message toward the camera, chomping at the bit for the Caribbean Connection next week.

...

In the locker room, Brock Lesnar appears again, approaching a suited M.V.P, pulling him aside for a private chat, telling Montel that he respects the fact he doesn’t want to sit by and just have easy matches and take an easy pay check. MVP listens, with Brock continuing, challenging MVP to back up his claims, offering Porter the chance to be in a big match like he says that he wants to be & be a part of Team Smackdown at Survivor Series.

MVP steps back, rubbing his designer beard, not replying straight away. He questions Lesnar, asking him to confirm if he asked Paul London to be on the team last week - which he did, and asks if he asked Batista earlier tonight - which he did … leading Montel to shake his head, and tells Brock, “Y‘know what?? Imma think it over. If you wanted a guy of my calibre to be on your team - you oughta aksed me first, not third.” MVP tells Brock he’ll get back to him, and walks out, as Brock shakes his head, clearly fuming by the snub.



Commercial Break

**VIDEO PACKAGE**

The video opens very cinematically, on a huge ship, in the middle of the ocean, with the ships name seen - RMS Titanic.

The video cuts to the bow of the ship, where two men - clearly dressed from the early 1900’s - are looking ahead at the beautiful scenery. In a clear rip off of a scene from the James Cameron blockbuster film ‘Titanic’, the Leonardo DiCaprio look-a-like climbs up, leaning over the edge…

Young Man: WOOO!!!

Second Man: I can see the statue of liberty already … very small of course.

Beaming with a smile, the first man continues to stand up on the railing, over the edge of the ship.

Young Man: I’M THE KING OF THE WORRRRRRRLLLLDDDD!!!! WOOO!!! WOO HOO!!!!! WOOOOO!!! YEE-HAAAAW!!! AWOOO-

~ SMACK!!!

The young man gets smashed from behind with a steel chair, and topples over the edge, and falls into the sea!!! The camera fans from the second mans point of view, showing … BRENT ALBRIGHT holding the chair!!! Albright smirks, faking to hit the second man with a chair, with the man running off in fear.

Albright steps forward, peering over the edge of the ship, and with a smirk…

Brent Albright: Well I’m the King of the Ring, Jack.

The Survivor Series logo then flashes across the screen.

Narrator: On November 11, the WWE presents Hollywoods Biggest Blockbuster of 2007 … The Twenty first annual SURVIVOR SERIES!!! And the WWE superstars are tearing up the script!!



WWE SURVIVOR SERIES | NOVEMBER 11 | LOS ANGELES CA
ONLY ON PAY PER VIEW
***



Backstage now, Kristal Marshall is with the A-List trio of Mercury, Nitro and Melina, congratulating them first on their debut win on Smackdown, asking them how they feel to be up and running on Friday Nights. Mercury leads, telling Kristal they’re all delighted to have a fresh start on Smackdown, stating that they all want to make changes in their approach - and it started tonight. Nitro takes over, telling Kristal that they showed tonight just a taster of what they’re capable of, and says that they’re saving the rest for AMW.

That leads Kristal to ask about their immediate issue with AMW upon arriving on Smackdown, and Melina steps up, making sure that there is no doubt that they’re here to make a change, and states it’s time there was a change in the tag team division on Smackdown - starting with the champions. She reminds Kristal of their success on Raw, and says that now on Smackdown they have a point to prove - that they can get the job done the right way, not just through cheating. Like last week, she says MNM outshine AMW in every way - and soon, they’ll outshine them to take the titles.

...

Elsewhere, Jamie Noble - not in action tonight - approaches a livid Layla, who looks pissed to see him in her space. She holds her nose, bluntly asking Noble what he wants, as Noble turns the tables from last week, disingenuously offering his commiserations for her teams loss earlier tonight. He tells her that no matter what way she tries to dress up the James Boys - that wont make them a better team, and suggests they need a better manager to guide them. Layla takes exception, mocking Noble for his losses to Kendrick, stating that being a trailer park boy hasn’t helped him, and she wont let him drag her duo down with him into the gutter, “sorry, that‘s right, you never left the gutter.”

Noble laughs off the dig, but with Layla riled, she throws out a challenge, offering Noble a match next week if he can find a partner to take on her boys, promising a win, and making a dig that she could do with getting her team an easy match to get that elusive first victory. Noble ponders for a second, but accepts, stating that he likes Kassidy and Kacey, but just to prove a point to her, he’ll teach them a lesson next week - that you don’t have to be ashamed of where you come from. He then takes off, leaving Layla to stew, face screwed up, and the match is set…



A short video package then airs, hyping the Batista vs. Undertaker match later tonight, and what led to the confrontation, after mix ups and screw jobs.



Now, backstage, Batista is seen making his way down the hallway - with the highly anticipated main event coming up - NEXT!!!

Commercial Break

As the show returns, Styles and Heyman run down the announced matches for next weeks show, as the Murdochs take on the Caribbean Connection, The James Boys meet Jamie Noble & a partner of his choice, PLUS, Brock Lesnar has accepted the ‘challenge’ Kendrick - AND - Ric Flairs first pick for the Survivor Series will meet Randy Ortons first pick in a one on one match!!!

**I WALK ALONE**

Now, the entrances take place for the main event, with the fans in Chicago pumped for the showdown, after weeks of attacks and run ins. Batista looks just as pumped, not taking long to make his way to the ring, wanting his chance against the Undertaker in the worst possible way.

**GRAVEYARD SYMPHONY**

It’s standard stuff from the methodical Deadman. He makes his way to the ring slowly, as Batista paces the ring, chomping at the bit to prove himself against the Phenom, as Styles and Heyman build up the suspense, sending the fans off to a commercial, just as The Deadman raises the lights in the All State Arena…

Commercial Break

Main Event:
Batista vs. The Undertaker
Hard hitting affair, with a war of attrition early on. They struggle for supremacy, with neither man taken off their feet, both unable to knock the other down, despite taking turns to charge at one another with running shoulders. After the stand off, both men have the same idea, throwing bombs, back and forth, with the fans clearly siding with the legendary Deadman, who wins the initial exchange, beating Batista into the corner, then, as he rushes in - BAM~!! Batista charges out with a clothesline, putting the legend down!!!

Batista takes the chance to take charge. He stomps down Taker, putting the boots to him while on the canvas, then drives his knee into the face of the seated Phenom in the corner, before rushing in with a knee to the face. Taker pulls himself to his feet, with the big man rushing in at him again, but Taker gets an elbow up, then comes at The Animal, only for Batista to throw him down with a hip toss … then charges him out of the ring with a clothesline!!! He follows outside, softening Taker up, and charges him into the side of the ring apron, before dropping him on the barrier.

Back inside, Batista continues to dominate, but cant score a three. He fires Taker off the ropes, but The Deadman ducks under two clothesline attempts, before LAUNCHING himself at Batista WITH A FLYING CLOTHESLINE taking the big man off his feet!!!!! Batista rolls out of the ring upon impact, with The Phenom following, giving Dave some payback for earlier, having his way with him on the outside, eventually dropping the leg on apron. Back inside though, he cant put the Animal away, with Batista kicking out of a pin attempt.

Taker begins to knot up the arm of Batista, setting up the trademark rope walk … AND NAILS IT!!! The Deadman opens up on Batista in the corner, pounding his opponent, then rushing in - but The Animal ducks out, and Taker manages to crotch himself on the top rope!!! That gives Batista a huge opening, and he starts to target the leg of Taker with a chop block, spotting the weakness after The Deadman hit the corner. The Animal stands over the weakened Deadman, with a smile on his face, as we head into the final commercial of the night.

Commercial Break

And, the show returns, with Batista working over the leg of Taker, applying a standard leg lock on the middle of the ring, with The Deadman struggling, in a lot of pain, as Styles shows clips from during the break of Batista working the leg. Taker fights out of the submission hold, and battles back to his feet, throwing his trademark soup bones to keep The Animal at bay, but he kicks the leg to slow Taker down again. He pulls Taker up, onto his shoulder, looking for a power slam … but Taker slips off the back - and surprises him as he turns back around - CHOKESLAM - NO!!! Batista kicks the leg again, breaking the grip - SPEAR!!!!! Batista covers, 1...2...KICK OUT!!!

Batista has to suck it up, and pounces on the recovering Taker in the corner with a clothesline in the corner, then does the same again in the opposite corner, before scooping Taker up, SPINEBUSTER!!! But - Taker counters on the way down … and just after impact, HE APPLIES THE TRIANGLE CHOKE - THE GATES OF HELL!!!!! Batista is caught in the middle of the ring, with the spine buster working against him!!! The Animal struggles, as Taker applies the pressure … but he finds the power, to lift Taker in the air … AND DRIVES HIM INTO THE CANVAS to break the hold, and covers, 1...2...KICK OUT!!!!!

{/OVERRUN}

Batista keeps on Taker, stomping him down by the ropes, shooting him off, and knocks the legend back down with a reverse elbow, following with an elbow drop for a near fall. He rushes Taker into the corner, driving shoulder after shoulder into his gut, driving the wind out of the Phenom, then mounts the ropes, pounding Taker - and guess what happens - Taker grips The Animal, walking out of the corner for the Last Ride … BUT BATISTA LANDS ON HIS FEET BEHIND … BUT WALKS INTO A CHOKESLAM!!! Taker drops down, covers … 1...2...KICK OUT!!!!!

Neither man will stay down, but the momentum has shifted. Taker now takes control, crushing Batista in the corner, opening up with rights and lefts, before shooting him to the opposite corner and crushes him with another clothesline, and another in the opposite corner!!! Batista staggers out, and is lifted with ease, SNAKE EYES … BIG BOOT … LEG DROP!!! Cover from The Deadman, 1...2...SHOULDER UP!!! He still cant beat The Animal. Taker takes a second to shake out his bad leg, then as Batista rises, Taker puts him right back down with a running clothesline. Taker shoots Big Dave off the ropes, but Batista ducks a boot, comes back - AND BOTH MEN COLLIDE - AND BOTH ARE DOWN!!!!!

Fighting back to their feet at the count of six, Batista and Undertaker give the fans a chance to partake in a BOO/YAY series, siding with YAY shouts for Taker, but it’s Batista that wins the fist fight, backing Taker into the ropes, shooting him off … but ducks down … RUNNING DDT FROM THE PHENOM!!! He covers, 1...2...NO!!! The war continues!!! Taker though, is looking to finish now, and signals for the Tombstone, getting Batista up … BUT THE ANIMAL REVERSES … GETTING TAKER ONTO HIS SHOULDERS … RUNNING POWERSLAM!!!!!

Batista doesn’t cover, but instead gets to his feet … AND RATTLES THE ROPES - IT’S TIME FOR THE BATISTA BOMB!!!!! The Animal is met with a mixed response, but he shrugs it off, and pulls Taker to his feet, loading up, getting him up … BUT TAKER BATTLES, FIRING OFF RIGHTS AND LEFTS … AND DROPS TO HIS FEET - CHOKESLAM - NO!!! Batista blocks it - SPINEBUSTER TO THE UNDERTAKER!!!!! The Animal lets off some steam, then drags Taker back up once more, setting him … BATISTA BOMB!!!!! He hooks the leg … 1...2...3!!! NO - FOOT ON THE ROPE!!!!!

The Animal doesn’t realise it though, and is up, celebrating the victory, and it takes a good ten seconds for the news to filter to him - it ISNT over!!! Batista is irate, and argues with the official, demanding to have his hand raised … whilst behind his back … THE UNDERTAKER SITS UP!!!!! The Deadman makes it to his feet, whilst Big Dave is still arguing … but he eventually turns around … INTO A GOOZLE … CHOKESLAM!!!!! The Deadman signals for the end again, and drags Batista up … into position … TOMBSTONE!!!!! The Phenom applies the darkness pin … 1...2...3!!!!!
Winner: The Undertaker @ 17:13

The Undertaker sees off Batista - but The Animal only has himself to blame!!! Darkness engulfs the All State Arena, as The Undertaker is victorious, whilst Batista slowly recovers from the shattering defeat. The Undertaker drops to a knee, embracing the darkness … but we see Batista stepping up … and approaches the Undertaker … pulling him up …

… and …

… OFFERS A HANDSHAKE!!!!!

The music has cut, and the lights have returned … as Batista - still looking bitterly disappointed - offers a handshake to the victor … and Taker nods, accepting the offer from The Animal. The fans cheer, as Batista talks to Taker, prodding him in the chest, still clearly upset over the loss, but man enough to accept the defeat …

BAM~!!! … BAM~!!!


...


...


IT’S EDGE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Edge FROM NOWHERE, blasts both men with chair shots!!!!! He slams the chair down, and stomps Batista out of the ring, whilst Taker struggles at the ropes, trying to pull himself to his feet … SPEAR!!!!! Edge - sporting a thick beard - runs through The Undertaker, as Styles proclaims that Edge QUIT a month ago, and wonders what the hell he’s doing here!!!

Edge picks up the chair again, blasting Batista off the apron as he tries to intervene, then slides out, shoving workers out of the way, as he grabs another chair, then pushes a cameraman over as he tries to get a close up of the wild eyed Rated ‘R’ Superstar, getting back in the ring. Edge places a chair under the head of The Phenom, grabbing the first one again … and stands over Taker, looking toward the hard camera, soaking up the moment, and shouts “I‘MMMM BAAAAAAA-AAAAACKKKK!!!”

CON-CHAIR-TO!!!!!!!

Edge flattens the skull of The Phenom!!! It’s carnage and chaos in Chicago, as Edge’s stunning, shocking return closes the show, with the Rated ‘R’ Superstar holding the chair aloft, over the broken body of The Undertaker, with a huge - crazy - grin is etched on his face, with Styles denouncing the mad man … as we go off the air…

END OF SHOW

Default Re: Being The Booker

SmackDown Review:

Love Flair's return. He was definitely needed with Orton having his way with essentially everyone else on SD! I'm also glad Flair won't be challenging for Orton's title, as putting the belt on Flair is too unrealistic and wouldn't inspire much excitement. Keeping the feud free of championship stipulations gives it more of a raw blood feud feel, and actually gives Flair a chance to come out on top. Survivor Series Elimination Match is the way to go, it will be interesting to see who Orton is able to recruit onto his team with seemingly no friends.

London/Nemeth: Yeah, Nemeth looks like the natural pick to take the belt from London. Hopefully it will mean London is elevated to the upper card, but who knows. The midcard of SD! is very solid and should be in good hands. It's the upper card that needs a little life at the moment. Well written match and a needed win for Nemeth to keep that momentum going.

Planting the seeds for a Batista heel turn? Hard to tell but he has definitely looked the heel in this feud and his reaction to Lesnar seemed very heel-ish. The SmackDown! team is starting to take shape and it looks pretty impressive so far. I wonder if Cade becomes part of the team, as that would make the group dynamic very shaky with his feud with Big Dave still very much alive.

MNM vs. James Boys: The jobbers continue to job and MNM is on a roll. I'm really excited to see MNM and AMW feud, I think that has the potential for some hilarious promos and seeing MNM play the "face" role in the feud will be very interesting.

Oh man, Kendrick is great. Kind of surprised to see Lesnar turn him down. As annoying as Kendrick is, he would definitely make a solid addition to the team and Lesnar essentially treats him like a joke. That Iron Man performance and seven month reign is very impressive and hopefully he'll find a way onto the team...or perhaps join Orton' team?

I really like Cade's character. Relatively easy squash against Holly who I honestly can't believe is still around. He may as well be The Brooklyn Brawler at this point. Anyway, Orton is such a snake. Was glad to see Cade turn him down and from here, I have no idea where Orton is going to find support. You're gonna have to pull out a few surprises. Should be fun.

More Kendrick? Yes please. I can't say enough how much I love his promos. They are so hilariously asshole heel, it's awesome. Glad to see him challenge Lesnar, shows that while he's an asshole you can't call him a chickenshit and he's still out to prove himself. While unlikely to beat Lesnar, hopefully he puts on a good showing. And woah, Bryan Danielson! Beating Kendrick in his debut in less than five minutes? He must be in line for a quick push as I can't remember a debut as impressive as that one. Can't wait to see where he factors in to things on SmackDown.

The Mad Murdoch Twins still don't interest me, I have to say. I hope Carlito and Kofi take care of them next week and end this mini-feud. It's been nicely built and everything and you've done a good job...but they're just not an impressive tandem IMO.

Wow, MVP snubs Lesnar. He looks like more of a natural fit for Orton's team at this point.

Jamie Noble and his partner should wipe the floor with The James Boys. I love the constant banter between Noble and Layla. Hope they ditch her and embrace their hillbilly roots.

Great main event between Batista and Undertaker. These two always seem to put on good matches, this being no exception. I liked that Batista still looked strong, losing in a bizarre finish. That was clearly the best way to go, as Taker still deserved his vengeance. And holy fuck, EDGE IS BACK. I wasn't expecting him to return until maybe the Royal Rumble, but he's back and badder than ever. The "I'M BACK" was perfect, as was the con-chair-to. He looks to be more sadistic than ever, and I don't know where he's going to fit into the scheme of things on SmackDown! but it looks like he's got mayhem on his mind. The main event scene on SmackDown! is looking good, and it will be even better when RVD returns.

Another great show. Very excited to read Nemesis. You're still the man!
