Re: Being the booker

RAW; September 19th; Salt Lake City:

Highlights from last week with Mick Foley being attacked by Ric Flair and Batista, before highlights of Sting becoming the Number One Contender to face Shawn Michaels at Nemesis.

Opening Video


Jim Ross: We are less, than three weeks away from the joint brand production of Nemesis, but tonight, all hell could break loose, with our General Manager, Mick Foley absent this evening, after the vicious attack he sustained last week at the hands of the Nature Boy, Ric Flair, and The Animal, Batista.

Jerry Lawler: I hope Foley knows the number of a good chiropractor J.R. Last week, the Hardcore Legend took a power bomb from right here on our stage!!!

Jonathon Coachman: Indeed, guys, Mick Foley isn’t here, but that leaves us with an enormous question. Who the hell is running the show tonight??

Jim Ross: I’ve been asking myself the same question al-

**BREAK IT DOWN** DX music hits into the arena, and the most powerful group in the business enter the arena to a major amount of heat. Michaels returns after his absence last week, and the four men look incredibly pleased about something, as they head to the ring.
Michaels is handed a mic, and he waits for the music to die down before speaking.

Shawn Michaels: Last week, something terrible happened. Something that all the fans of Raw, and all the fans of the WWE across the world have needed therapy for.

A few fans shout out Mick Foley’s name, thinking that is what Michaels is alluding to. HBK looks around, after hearing the mention of Foley, shaking his head in disagreement.

Shawn Michaels: No. Not Mick Foley, getting power bombed off the stage, but the Heart Break Kid not being able to show up on national television last week.

Crowd give heat

Shawn Michaels: Hell, not even Mick Foleys family cared about what happened to him last week. I had his kids calling me after the show on Monday Night asking why I wasn’t on the show!!

Crowd starts a ‘Bullshit’ chant

Shawn Michaels: Thank god. You people smell it too. For a minute I thought I was the only person who thought that was what Utah smelt like.

Crowd gives more heat, before starting an ‘Asshole’ chant.

Shawn Michaels: But speaking of Foley. (Mockingly wipes his eye before speaking) He’s not here tonight.

Crowd boos

Shawn Michaels: So, when the General Manager isn’t in the building, the power passes to the World Champion.

Crowd gives heat, knowing what they are about to hear next wont be good.

Shawn Michaels: And guys, this strap over my shoulder, it isn’t a prop, it is the proof that I am what I say I am, and that is the WORLD Heavyweight Champion!!!

Crowd gives heat

Shawn Michaels: Which means that in Mick Foleys absence, I’M RUNNING THE SHOW!!!

Crowd gives more heat

Shawn Michaels: And tonight, with my first night in charge of Raw, the Heart Break Kid is signing a HUGE … GRANDIOSE … HUUUUGE … Main Event, which is gonna feature, the Number One Contender, Sting.

Crowd pops

Shawn Michaels: And a mystery opponent, known only by me.

Crowd boo

Shawn Michaels: And Sting, think of that as your initiation to the big leagues, right here on Raw.

Michaels laughs with DX for a moment until…

**NO CHANCE** The crowd rises to it’s feet, as VINCE MCMAHON enters the arena!!! The Chairman of the Board walks down the aisle, in his usual power walk style, whilst DX start to look quite worried in the ring. Vince walks the steps, and climbs through the ropes, asking for a mic from Lillian. She hands him a mic, and as Mr. McMahon turns around, HBK tells Cade and Jindrak to bow, which they do.

Mr. McMahon: What in hell are you two idiots doing??

Cade and Jindrak quickly stand up straight and look to Michaels, who says nothing.

Mr. McMahon: So, Shawn Michaels is in charge of Raw??

Crowd boo’s

Mr. McMahon: Not by my watch pal.

Crowd pops

Mr. McMahon: Shawn Michaels, I wouldn’t put you in charge of this show if Mick Foley never came back. So right now, I’m going to introduce the man in charge tonight … the man who will be running this show … … ME!!

Crowd Pops

Mr. McMahon: But, and there is a but. I’m quite tempted to find out, just who exactly you have lined up to face Sting tonight, so as for that match, I’m gonna let it stand.

Mixed Reaction

Mr. McMahon: But, next week, the roles will be reversed.

Crowd Pops

Mr. McMahon: Oh, and another thing. Recently, it’s come to my attention that you, and your … for lack of a better term, your friends, have been quite busy when getting involved in matches they have no place being in.

HBK starts to look embarrassed

Mr. McMahon: For starters, at Summer Slam, you needed the help of Garrison Cade, Mark Jindrak and Luther Reigns to take the World Championship from John Cena.

Crowd boos

Mr. McMahon: And two weeks ago on Raw … the exact same thing happened for you to keep the belt, only this time against Randy Orton.

Crowd boos again

Mr. McMahon: Lets not forget just last week, when your boys scored a hat trick, when they cost John Cena the chance of becoming the Number One Contender.

Crowd boos once again

Mr. McMahon: Of course, also in the match, The Undertaker had his chance taken away by Christian, whilst Edge unfortunately picked up an injury. Which leads to my next announcement, and Shawn, strap on a seat belt, because this is a big one … at Nemesis, you’ll be defending the World Heavyweight Championship, against not only Sting, but The Undertaker (Crowd Pops) … Randy Orton (Crowd Pops) … Christian (Crowd boos) and … JOHN CENA!!!

Crowd pops big time

Mr. McMahon: In a six pack elimination rules match!!!

Crowd Pops again, before Michaels jumps it.

Shawn Michaels: You cannot do that. For a start, it’s unfa-

Mr. McMahon: SHADDAP!!!

Cade pulls the mic from HBK

Garrison Cade: No way. Shawn is in charge. Not you!!

Mr. McMahon: Excuse me?? Does Shawn Michaels sign your over inflated cheques??

Garrison Cade: I wish he did.

Mr. McMahon: WELL SO DO I!!!

Jindrak tries to take the mic from Cade, but McMahon cuts in.

Mr. McMahon: And so help me God, the next one of you to speak will be hearing the words YOU’RE FIRED!!!!

Crowd Pops

DX look to each other, and decide against saying anything, as McMahon starts to nod.

Mr. McMahon: But before I head back up this ramp, I have to make one more announcement. In two weeks time, Raw is going home. And with Sting no longer facing Shawn Michaels one on one at Nemesis … that leaves that dream match scenario out the window, doesn’t it?? Not anymore. In two weeks, from Cleveland, Ohio, The World Heavyweight Champion, Shawn Michaels, will be competing for the first time ever, against STING!!!

Crowd pops. HBK has to bite his lip from speaking, as McMahon heads out of the ring, with his music hitting again, before we cut to a commercial


1st Match:
Carlito w/Stacy Kiebler vs. Booker T w/Goldust
Pretty basic, formula match, with the heel using the cheap ass tactics, to gain the momentum. As Booker tries to make a comeback, Stacy tries to cause a distraction, only for Goldberg to grab her, and drags her up the ramp, by the legs, smiling as he gets a great view.
In the ring, Carlito becomes distracted, with Booker rolling him up, 1...2...Kick Out just in time!!!!! Carlito gets up, and ducks the Axe Kick, with Booker getting caught in the ropes. CCC takes a moment, as the referee tends to Booker, to go to the corner and take the padding from the turnbuckle. He waits as Booker recovers, and pretends to be hurt in the corner.
Booker T thinks CCC is hurt, and charges at him in the corner, but Carlito moves, and the Book runs into the turnbuckle. Booker T falls backward, knocked out, allowing Carlito to cover, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Carlito
Carlito rolls out of the ring, smiling as his plan unfolds, and he gets himself a big win over a legitimate star, and former world champion.

Jim Ross: Well, what a way to kick this show off. First, Mr. McMahon puts Shawn Michaels in his place, then we find out that the Raw main event for Nemesis will be a six pack elimination style match, featuring Michaels, Orton, Undertaker, Christian, John Cena, and of course, Sting. And following that, we learn that in two weeks time at Raw Homecoming, Shawn Michaels, in a non title match, takes on Sting for the first time ever. And now, Carlito, cheats his way to a victory over the five time WCW Champion, Booker T.

Jerry Lawler: Was he caught J.R??

Jim Ross: Why should that matter??

Jerry Lawler: Because it isn’t cheating if you don’t get caught!!

Jonathon Coachman: Amen to that King.

Jim Ross: Oh, why don’t you two go get a room!!

Jonathon Coachman: I’ve already got my own J.R. Plus, it’d be unprofessional to leave you two novices all alone wouldn’t it??

Backstage, we see Vince McMahon sitting back in his office, until his door knocks, and Todd Grisham walks in.

Todd Grisham: Mr. McMahon, could I have a word??

Mr McMahon: Sure, come right ahead.

Todd Grisham: Well sir, I was hoping if you could give us a quick update on the condition of Mick Foley after last weeks assault carried out by Ric Flair, along with Batista.

Mr McMahon: That’s a good question Todd.

McMahon swivels around on his chair, and starts to look through some pieces of paper, ignoring Todd.

Todd Grisham: …… Would you care to give an answer??

McMahon swivels back around on his chair, and looks at Todd with a smile.

Mr. McMahon: Not right now Todd. You see, later on, I’ll be addressing the Mick Foley situation, and I’ll not be doing it in this room. No. In fact, I’ll be doing it … out there, in my ring. Now, if you would please leave, that would be terrific.

Todd quickly shuffles out of the room, as we fade away…

Smackdown Rebound:
- Triple H vs. Eddie Guerrero made official for Nemesis with a 20 Minute Time Limit
- The Rock calls out Steve Austin to be his tag team partner at Nemesis to face Brock Lesnar and Goldberg.
- Chris Jericho becomes the Number One Contender to face JBL for the U.S Title at Nemesis.
- Kurt Angle retains the WWE Championship over Paul London with London nearly causing an upset of the decade.

Jim Ross: Ladies and Gentlemen, right now, we’d like to take you back to last week on Raw, where Edge suffered an unfortunate injury in last weeks main event, tearing his meniscus, after coming off the top rope. We’d like to wish Edge a quick recovery, and in the next few weeks, we’ll have more updates on his condition.

2nd Match: World Tag Team Championships Match:
The DX Duo vs. Roadkill & Danny Doring
As with the last two meetings between the teams, Roadkill and Doring cause the Duo all sorts of problems, seemingly having something that Cade and Jindrak cant seem to handle. DX get frustrated, and try to walk out again, but are stopped by Roadkill and Doring from doing so.
The last ever ECW Tag Champions dominate Cade and Jindrak back in the ring, knocking Jindrak out of the ring. They hit a double clothesline on HBCade, before getting him up for the legendary double team move of the Doomsday Device, but as Doring goes up top, Jindrak nails him with a tag title belt, forcing a DQ to be called.
Winners: Roadkill & Danny Doring via DQ - DX Duo remain champions.
Roadkill drops Cade down, and goes to check on his partner, whilst Cade slides out of the ring, and stumbles up the ramp, with Jindrak helping him, as the DX Duo once again dodge the bullet of Roadkill and Doring.

Jim Ross: Seems to me that our esteemed tag champions have caught a case of the limber tales gentlemen. They just don’t want a piece of Roadkill and Doring!!!

Jerry Lawler: That’s how it looks to you, J.R, but in reality, Cade and Jindrak are dragging these extremely crappy wrestlers into a false sense of security. They could’ve ended the match at any given moment.

The Coach: I totally agree with you King. Cade and Jindrak could have ended this match when they wanted.

Jim Ross: Coach agrees with King folks, aint that a surprise??

In the parking lot, we see Ric Flair and Batista exit a limo, arriving at the arena, both smiling broadly, pleased with themselves, as we cut to a commercial


We return with a promo hyping Raw returning to the USA Network in two weeks, on October 3rd for a three hour special show.

We return, with Christian and Tomko walking by Mr. McMahon’s office. Christian stops, and knocks on the door, not waiting for a reply, and instead, walking on in.

Christian: Here he is Tomko, the biggest genius on Gods Green earth!!

McMahon looks up from his desk at Christian as if to say, cut the crap.

Christian: But Tomko, even geniuses have an off day. Tonight Vince, you’ve made one great decision, and two awful ones. Lets start on the good foot, and talk about the awesome announcement, that at Nemesis, Captain Charisma finally fulfils his destiny, and raises the World Title for all my peeps.
Now the bad. First of all, you take a superstar of my calibre, and you leave him off the show. I can see the reasoning behind that though, I mean, why hurt a million - sorry, billion dollar asset, and risk him getting injured in a hell hole like Utah.

We hear the fans give heat.

Christian: And then, you also add The Undertaker into the Raw main event at Nemesis?? Vince, that idea ranks somewhere in the region of the XFL, and the Brooklyn Brawler.

Vince gives Christian another look, as if to say, watch it.

Christian: Lets face it, The Undertaker’s time has passed. He had his Decade of Destruction, he ran the yard, he buried people alive, threw guys off the Cell, but now, it’s my time, and the Christian Coalition has spoken. They wanted me to take over, and that’s what I’m doing. I wasn’t given the torch Vince, but I’m sure as hell taking it. I beat The Undertaker, with one move, and one move only, The UNPRETTIER … and since then, I’ve put down EVERYONE with The Unprettier. But still, I wasn’t included in last weeks main event. So, I had to take matters into my own hands, and make sure that The Undertaker didn’t get my rightful spot. I beat him like no man before, yet he gets the chance at title matches. It’s not fa-

Mr. McMahon: Enough.

Christian stops, as McMahon gets up from his chair.

Mr. McMahon: Christian, let me tell you this. I’ve listened to what you had to say here, and to be honest … I’m impressed. You see Christian, you have untapped potential, but up until now, you’ve been hovering around the glass ceiling, and you haven’t broken through for one reason … your lack of GRAPE FRUITS!!!

Christian looks stunned, and angry.

Mr. McMahon: But at Summer Slam, last week, and right now, you’re showing intestinal fortitude. At Summer Slam you did indeed beat The Undertaker, last week, you jumped from the frying pan into the fire, and cost The Undertaker a one on one title shot. And now tonight, you’re in here, going toe to toe with the boss. I like the fact you’ve dropped the comedy act, because the more intensity you show, the more seriously you’ll be taken.

Christian starts to look proud of himself.

Mr. McMahon: That’s why I’m making a match … for next week, the final Raw on Spike TV. It’ll be the man of grapefruits, Christian. And this wont be a normal match by the way, no. Christian, you’ll be partaking in a No Holds Barred match. And your opponent … will be … THE UNDERTAKER!!!

Christian’s face drops, and is shocked by the announcement.

Christian: Uh?

Mr. McMahon: Summer Slam rematch, kid. You want to be a main eventer right?? Well Christian, you need to beat the top names, more than just once. Now … GET OUT!!!

Christian thinks for a moment, then nods, and starts to look confident, before pointing a Vince, but doesn’t say anything. Captain Charisma walks out of the room, whilst Vince shakes his head as we fade back to ringside…

Jim Ross: Oh my. Next week, of course the final Raw on Spike TV, from Fort Worth, and what a main event to leave the network with. Christian against The Undertaker in a Summer Slam rematch, only this time, it’ll be No Holds Barred.

Jerry Lawler: Can Christian strike twice with the Unprettier J.R?? I’m as big a fan of Captain Charisma, but even I was shocked when he downed The Deadman in San Juan with that move. I honestly cant see the kid doing it again, especially in a No Holds Barred environment.

The Coach: If Christian ever wants to become an out and out main eventer, this will be his chance next week. I don’t recall anyone ever having a 2-0 record over The Undertaker. Will Christian be the first man to do so??

Jim Ross: We’ll find out next week in Fort Worth. And you have to believe that right now, Raw is pulling out all the stops for the final show on Spike TV, as well as the special three hour show to kick off Raw Homecoming!!

3rd Match:
Randy Orton vs. Rene Dupree w/ Kenzo Suzuki & Hiroko
Dupree gains the early momentum, thanks to the outside influence of Suzuki & Hiroko. The two young men put on a decent contest, with Orton clearly outshining the French Phenom, with only the outside presence keeping Dupree in the match.
Eventually though, Orton eliminates Suzuki and Hiroko from the equation, as Kenzo jumps onto the apron, only to be dropkicked off, falling onto Hiroko. Rene goes for a DDT on the Legend Killer, but Orton counters into a devastating RKO. He hooks the leg for the elementary three count, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Randy Orton
Orton has his arm raised in the air for a decent victory, as he heads into a World Title match at Nemesis.

Jim Ross: In twenty days, Randy Orton will have the chance to become a three time World Champion, as he bids to outlast five other men in a six pack elimination match.

Jerry Lawler: And on this type of form, I wouldn’t like to be facing the Legend Killer right now.

Jim Ross: And you gotta believe that Orton is still hell bent on revenge on Cade, Jindrak and Reigns too, after they cost him the title two weeks ago.

The Coach: I’m sure Orton will be fully concentrated on his title shot at Nemesis rather than Shawn Michaels cohorts, J.R.


Backstage, Marc Lloyd is with Roadkill and Danny Doring…

Marc Lloyd: Gentlemen, once again tonight, Garrison Cade and Mark Jindrak dodged the bullet, and intentionally got themselves disqualified in order to keep the tag titles. This is the second time that this has happened in the last month. Your comments??

Roadkill: Cade … Jindrak, you keep hiding, you keep running, but sooner or later, we’ll find you, we’ll catch you, and we’ll take the World Tag Team Championships!!!

Danny Doring: Roadkill, you couldn’t be any more right. DX tell us to suck it, but when you ask about their reign as tag team champions, the answer, is it sucks. And boys, we aren’t just going to go away. We’ll hunt you down, beat you up, and sooner or later, you’ll not be able to run away, or get disqualified. You’re looking at the next World Tag Team Champions. And Marc, Roadkill here wants to perfectly describe Cade and Jindrak. What are they buddy??

Roadkill: Mmmmmmmm…. CHICKENSSSSSS

Roadkill and Doring then walk off the screen, as the camera switches to the DX dressing room…

We see Cade and Jindrak watching the monitor, having just seen the interview from Roadkill and Doring. They turn to speak to Michaels, but HBK cuts them off immediately, as he waits for an answer on his phone…

Shawn Michaels: Hello?? Yes. Where are you?? … Get here as quick as you can man, we haven’t got long until your match with Sting. … (Chuckles) Yeah, that’s a good one. But seriously, tell your driver to break the lights, I don’t care, just get here soon, k? … Good. Cya soon.

Michaels switches the phone up, and smiles.

Shawn Michaels: Gentlemen, we have lift off.

The camera fades away as the four men talk lightly…

Back in the main locker room, we see John Cena sitting in the locker room, listening to a CD, as Orton walks in. Orton walks over to Cena, and signals to him to take the headphones off. Cena does, and nods at Randy…

Randy Orton: You got a minute??

John Cena: Sure.

Randy Orton: Okay. I know, that at Nemesis, we’re both gunning for the same gold, but before that, I’ve got a problem that I need to solve.

John Cena: Gee… Tomko not around??

Orton smiles, understanding the joke.

Randy Orton: No, I’m serious. It concerns DX.

John Cena: I’m listening…

Randy Orton:We’ve both been screwed over by them lately, right?? I mean, they cost you the World Title at Summer Slam … cost you a World Title shot last week too. They cost me my chance at becoming World Champion two weeks ago too, and I’ll be damned if I’ll let them get away with it.

John Cena: Okay.

Randy Orton: Well, I was talking with Mr. McMahon earlier, and he’s granted me a match, under the condition that I find at least one partner, for a three on two handicap match next week against Reigns, Cade and Jindrak.

John Cena: And you want me to team up with you??

Randy Orton: Yep.

John Cena: Sounds good to me Randy.

Cena stands up, and shakes hands with Orton.

John Cena: But at Nemesis, it’s every man for himself.

Randy Orton: I wouldn’t want it any other way.

John Cena: Good. Because Orton, the champ … is here.

Orton pulls away, and looks Cena dead in the eye.

Randy Orton: I know. You’re looking at him.

Orton walks off, leaving the locker room, as Cena watches him go.

4th Match:
Trish Stratus & Gail Kim vs. Jazz & Molly Holly
Lots of early tags between each team, with all four women getting in some action, before the action slows down, with Jazz and Molly in control, wearing down Gail. They use all the old school heel methods, with dirty tactics throughout, but these eventually backfire, with Kim firing up, and making a spirited comeback. The diva manages to make a tag, and brings Stratus in.
Trish looks to be on top form, and takes down Molly and Jazz, with Molly accidentally hitting Jazz going fro a clothesline, only for Trish to do his Matrix like move. She manages to keep on top of both opponents for a short period before the two on one advantage becomes too much for her. Gail eventually evens things up, and battles with Molly to the outside.
In the ring, Jazz goes for a Fisherman Buster, but Trish fights out, and connects with the Chick Kick!!! She hooks the leg, 1...2...3!!!
Winners: Trish Stratus & Gail Kim
The winning divas hug, whilst Jazz and Molly help each other up the ramp, after losing to Trish and Gail.

Jim Ross: Well, in less than three weeks, Raw and Smackdown join up once again, to host WWE Nemesis, and right now, the card is looking absolutely loaded..

Jerry Lawler: J.R, I’m extremely excited. Lets start off, with the World Heavyweight Championship!!! Six men, five challengers to Shawn Michaels championship, as John Cena gets his first chance to reclaim the title, Randy Orton has himself a shot after Michaels escaped through the skin of his teeth…

The Coach: Lets not forget King, about the man who last week thought he had a one on one match with HBK on October 9th, and that’s Sting. His chances have been considerably cut from a one in two chance, to a one in six chance of victory.

Jim Ross: The Undertaker and Christian will also be involved in that one. The Undertaker will have the opportunity to become a five time World Champion, and Captain Charisma himself has an opportunity to solidify himself as a main eventer.

Jerry Lawler: J.R, it’ll be contested under elimination rules too, which means who ever wins the match will have earned it, no doubt.

The Coach: Right now, I can promise you gentlemen that HBK isn’t a happy camper.

Jim Ross: Smackdown will been presenting a United States Championship Match, as Chris Jericho, who made a remarkable recovery from a sickening attack just over a month ago at the hands of JBL, gets a chance to take Layfields most prized possession.

Jerry Lawler: That’s right J.R. Five weeks ago, people were speculating that Jericho’s career was over, but they couldn’t be more wrong. He’s back, and he’s not gonna lay down for JBL.

The Coach: Well, Jericho might not want to, but JBL will make sure that is exactly what happens in Louisville. No one, and I mean no one, gets to take the U.S Championship from JBL.

Jim Ross: The Rock finds himself in a heck of a predicament, as he faces not one, but two men, in the shape of Goldberg and Brock Lesnar. The Rock has the option of a tag team partner, and he’s made it clear he wants ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin to team with him, will The Rattlesnake answer the call??

Jerry Lawler: I need to correct you J.R, The Rock isn’t facing two men, he’s facing two behemoths. Goldberg and Lesnar have run roughshod over The Peoples Champion recently, and if he doesn’t find a partner, his career could well end.

The Coach: I’m confused J.R. You claim to be a good friend of Austin, yet you don’t know what he’ll be doing??

Jim Ross: Unfortunately, since Austin retired on Smackdown two weeks ago, he hasn’t answered a phone call to me, or anybody else for that matter. But one thing I do know, is that Chris Benoit will challenge Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship in the Smackdown main event!!

Jerry Lawler: I cant wait J.R. No one ever gets tired of Benoit and Angle. They’ve had match of the year candidates in the past, and no doubt when they meet for the WWE Title, it’ll be business as usual!!!

The Coach: I just hope that Angle keeps his mind focused on Benoit, and forgets about whatever he is hinting at with Bret Hart.

Jim Ross: And, ECW Rules, Intercontinental Championship on the line. Rob Van Dam, challenges the in conquerable Rey Mysterio, who is closing in on five long months as the champion.

Jerry Lawler: It’ll be a match for the ages. These two hate each other J.R.

The Coach: Mysterio has never faced RVD as focused as he is right now gentlemen, and that’s a fact.

Jim Ross: Neither man is here tonight, with both in deep preparations for their feud ending contest in less than three weeks at Nemesis, but ri-

**Evolution** Ric Flair and Batista enter the arena to some big heat from the fans. They look extremely pleased with themselves, after last weeks attack on Mick Foley.

Jim Ross: Ladies and Gentlemen, when we come back, I cant bear to think of what these two men will have to say for themselves…


We return with Ric Flair ready to speak.

Ric Flair: Last week, Batista and I, rid Raw of a disease, known as Mick Foley.

Crowd Boos

Ric Flair: We took the so called hardcore legend, straight to school.

Crowd gives more heat

Ric Flair: We beat him up, we beat him down, we beat him black, and we
beat him blue, power bombing his ass straight to the gutter, where filth like Foley belongs.

The fans start a ‘We want Foley’ chant

Ric Flair: Tough. Because he isn’t here. And if he’s smart, Mick Foley will
never come back. So instead, as a treat for the fans, lets show the footage of last week, when Batista and I, en-

**NO CHANCE IN HELL** Vince McMahon steps out onto the stage, getting a nice ovation from the fans. He stands at the top of the ramp, and begins to speak.

Mr. McMahon: Ric, we wont be showing that footage tonight. Last week, what you did, was reprehensible, and life threatening. Flair, what you and Batista did was simply put, inexcusable, and because of that, you must be punished.

Flair smiles, and holds out his arms mockingly.

Ric Flair: Well McMahon, why don’t you just slap my wrists. Fine me even. What?? $10,000?? $20,000?? I don’t care, I blow my nose with type of money.

Mr. McMahon: Well Ric, as much as I want to fine you, I wont. You see yesterday, I spoke with Mick Foley, who by the way is still stuck in a hospital bed, and I discussed a justifiable punishment with Mick to put you through.

Ric Flair: What is it then?? Two hours of watching Mick Foley matches??

Crowd gives heat whilst Flair and Batista laugh.

Mr. McMahon: Not quite, but funnily enough, it involves a match. Well … more of a fight … a street fight to be precise.

Crowd starts cheering, as McMahon clears his throat. In the ring, Flair starts to look worried.

Mr. McMahon: And that match involves you Ric Flair …

Crowd starts a Foley chant.

Ric Flair: Against who?? One of Mick Foleys friends?? Terry Funk?? Or

Mr. McMahon: Not Terry Funk, but the man himself … MICK FOLEY!!!

Crowd goes insane, as Flair vs. Foley is made official.

Mr. McMahon: And better still, next week, Mick Foley will be back, through hell or high water!!!

Flair tries to speak but is lost for words.

Mr. McMahon: And to quote Mick Foley … THAT’S FINAL … now, Have a Nice Day!!!

McMahon’s music hits again, and he leaves the arena, whilst Flair is stunned in the ring.


Jim Ross: It’s official, Foley, takes on Flair, in the most bitter, personal rivalry in recent memory, in a street fight at Nemesis!!! And next week, it’s the monumental final edition of Raw on Spike TV, with two HUGE matches signed. Randy Orton & John Cena face three men, in the shape of Luther Reigns, Mark Jindrak and Garrison Cade, and the main event, will see Christian battle The Undertaker in a Summer Slam rematch, this time though, it’s No Holds Barred!!!

Jerry Lawler: And lets not forget J.R, Mick Foley will be back!!!

The Coach: It promises to be the biggest Raw ever, it’s the last on Spike TV, it’s in Fort Worth Texas, and its next week!!!

Jim Ross: But no doubt, it wont get any bigger than Raw Homecoming. One match signed already, as Sting, takes on the World Champion, for the first time ever, in a non title match. Sting vs. Shawn Michaels, a dream match, in two weeks at Homecoming!!

Jerry Lawler: But right now, Sting is in action, against a mystery opponent, picked by Shawn Michaels.

Main Event:
Sting vs. ???

**BREAK IT DOWN** Shawn Michaels comes out to a big amount of heat, making his way to the announce position. He has a mic, and begins to speak, looking towards Sting …

Shawn Michaels: Ladies and Gentlemen … and Sting. My mystery man is here, he’s live and he’s kicking … he is …

**Rockin Rockers** Marty Jannetty enters to a mixed reaction, with the fans not sure what to think, not sure whether to cheer or boo, after not seeing him in so long. The former tag partners known as The Rockers shake hands, before Jannetty runs to the ring.

Sting vs. Marty Jannetty
Short main event, with a lot of the show running rather long, which has forced this match to be cut a little. A commercial breaks the match up a little too. Jannetty gives a good showing, with Sting also impressive. Jannetty misses with the Rocker Dropper, as Sting counters, into the Scorpion Deathdrop, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Sting
Sting is declared the winner. He poses on the turnbuckle, with Michaels irate. Soon though, HBK smiles, and picks up the mic again…

Shawn Michaels: Well done Sting. You got through the warm up match fine and dandy, but now, meet your real opponent…

**X-Factor** X-Pac enters to a chorus of boo’s, and the as always, ‘X-Pac sucks’ chant, as he enters for a one night appearance. The fans seem taken aback, as they all believed him to be under contract with TNA. He runs to the ring, and begins his match with Sting.

Sting vs. X-Pac
X-Pac uses his speed to get the upper hand, with Sting quite tired, after already wrestling a match. X-Pac’s freshness helps him to get the best of the match, but as he goes for the Bronco Buster, Sting moves, and X-Pac straddles the turnbuckle. He staggers out, and is taken down by Sting, who locks on the Scorpion Deathlock!!! After nearly thirty seconds, X-Pac taps out!!!
Winner: Sting
Sting is once again declared the winner, but right away, Michaels cuts him off.

Shawn Michaels: Cut the music, this aint over yet. Sting, I’ve got one more person left for ya to face. The first two were just a tune up. Come on down contestant number three…

**4 Life** KEVIN NASH enters to a big reception, which is really too good for him. Again, the fans are shocked, as they had been led to believe with internet talk that he was with TNA. Big Sexy throws up the ’4 Life’ at Michaels, then walks to the ring, as Sting waits. From behind, X-Pac attacks Sting, with a roundhouse kick, before leaving. Nash climbs in, with Sting seemingly easy pickings…

Sting vs. Kevin Nash
Nash drags Sting up, and hits Snake Eyes, before knocking him down with a boot, which gets a two. Nash drags Sting to his feet, and goes for a Jacknife Powerbomb, but Sting blocks, and cradles Nash, 1...2...3!!!!
Winner: Sting
Sting wins!!! Michaels cant believe it, as Sting takes Nash by surprise. Michaels leaves commentary, and walks towards the ring, to take care of Sting himself, but Sting sees him coming, and gets a steel chair. He cracks Nash, stopping him from helping, as Michaels gets in. HBK misses a clothesline, and gets put down with a thunderous chair shot!!! X-Pac tries to get in, but chickens out, instead, dragging Nash and HBK out of the ring.
Sting celebrates in the ring, as Michaels is helped up the ramp, not able to overcome Sting tonight, as the show goes off the air.

End of Show

(Note: Jannetty, Nash and X-Pac were just one night only appearances)


Smackdown; September 22nd; Boise:

Opening Video


Michael Cole and Tazz introduce the show, and talk about tonight’s main event, which will be The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar. They also mention Benoit and Angle teaming up tonight to face Regal and Storm.

Eddie Guerrero defeats Scott Steiner in one on one action with the Frog Splash, in a passable match. Afterwards, Triple H walks down the aisle, with his trusty sledgehammer in hand. Guerrero sees him, and waits for him to come further, but instead, Triple H stands beside Guerrero’s low rider, begins to smile, then smashes the vehicle with his sledgehammer. Eddie loses his temper and comes after Triple H, but The Game leaves, having done the damage to Guerrero’s low rider.

Backstage, Benoit and Angle cross paths, with both men agreeing to get along tonight, before going at it at Nemesis.


Benoit and Angle defeat Regal and Lance Storm in a terrific tag team contest, which went rather long, having a commercial sandwiched in the middle. The finish came with Benoit locking the cross face on Storm, and Angle locking in the Anklelock on Regal, stopping him from breaking the submission. Lance taps, and Benoit and Angle are victorious.

Afterwards, the two men go head to head, with the tension between them set to explode at any given moment.

Goldberg and Brock Lesnar chat backstage about the likelihood of Steve Austin showing up tonight and accepting Rocks invitation to partner him. They agree that there is absolutely no chance.
JBL runs into Bret Hart, and tries to suck up to the GM. Hart blows him off, before telling JBL that his actions wont go unpunished, after wheeling Jericho off the stage on a stretcher, and at Nemesis his match with Chris Jericho will now be ironically a Stretcher Match. JBL is livid by the news, and starts going berserk backstage.


Following the commercial, Goldberg takes on Hardcore Holly. Despite his best efforts, Holly is unable to hang with Goldberg, and eventually, is beaten with the Spear, followed by Jackhammer.

Backstage, Bret Hart and Kurt Angle pass each other. Angle stops, and asks Bret if he got his message last week. Bret nods, whilst Angle smiles. Kurt then asks if he’s been thinking about what he said, to which Bret responds with ’Not in a million years’. The GM walks off, whilst Angles smile turns to a frown.

Maria interviews The Rock, asking whether he and Austin have made contact in the last week. Before she can screw anything up, Rock stops her, and begins speaking himself. He says that he hasn’t heard from Austin, and neither has anyone else, but he does believe that Stone Cold will be here tonight.


Chris Jericho takes on JBL’s Chief of Staff, Jamie Noble in an excellent match. JBL is forced from ringside early on, after interfering. Eventually, Jericho picks up the Submission win with the Walls of Jericho.


Following a commercial, Josh Matthews interviews JBL about Chris Jericho, and the Stretcher Match at Nemesis. JBL seems flustered, but eventually calms down, and claims putting him in barbaric contests like this is conspiracy to take the U.S Title from him. He then goes through the men he hasn’t beaten in recent months against the odds, and guarantees to do it once again against Jericho.

In a tag team contest, The Secretaries of Defence, Danny and Doug Basham take on Simon Dean and Chris Masters - both heel teams, in a short match. The fans cant really get into it with both teams being heels, but in the end, The Bashams out cheat Masters & Dean, pulling off the switch a roo, and Danny rolls up Dean.

Backstage, Paul London is interviewed, with questions centred on his match with Angle last week. The CW Champion talks about how close he came wrestling the match of his life against the WWE Champion to winning the belt. He talks about hoping to get another shot at some point, before Jamie Noble interrupts the interview. He talks about London being over rated just because he can do fancy flips, whilst he gets it done in the ring, but doesn’t get credit. Noble makes it clear to London he wants the CW Title, and London tells him he’ll be happy to defend it any time.

The introductions are made for the main event, as we cut to the final commercial of the night.


In the main event, Brock Lesnar is accompanied by both Heyman and Goldberg, which helps him to no end against The Rock. The Peoples Champ puts up a terrific fight, but in the end, after a great match, the outside interference is too much for The Rock to handle, and Lesnar picks up the victory with an F5 after a distraction from Heyman.

After the match, Goldberg is quick to put the boots to The Rock, and once again, a two on one attack begins. The fans all start to look up the ramp, hoping for Steve Austin to appear and save The Rock. An Austin chant fills the arena, but there is no sign of Stone Cold, as the beating continues.

In the end, Goldberg and Lesnar decide to save The Rock from any further beating, wanting to keep some of him for Nemesis. They stand over the fallen Peoples Champ, as the show goes off the air.


I'll post the remaining shows heading to Nemesis tomorrow.

Re: Being the booker

RAW; September 19th; Salt Lake City:

Yea! A new show is here

Spelling and Grammar
I scrutinized it but I have to laud you. 10/10

Made up at Nemesis. 10/10

HBK says he is charge but out comes the boss who is not acclaiming HBK’s friends for their interference. Hmm, sort of a pick your poison concept with Sting and HBK. NO WAY!! HBK will defend the title against, Sting, Undertaker, Cena, Christian, and Randy Orton!! This PPV could be a dream come true for me if Orton and Benoit win. Those six men are the best from Raw. This will be a great match to produce and read. You are exciting me for this. Ha, McMahon shuts HBK up and then HBCade. In two weeks, we will see the dream match anyway. Too bad it will not be in full. 10/10

One problem – Edge will cost Christian the title

1st Match:
Carlito w/Stacy Kiebler vs. Booker T w/Goldust
Is the whole thing with Hardy over? Carlito cheats to win. Nice way to kick it off!

Stupid Todd, McMahon tells him to leave. I hate Todd, he took over for Marc Lloyd. 9/10

2nd Match: World Tag Team Championships Match:
The DX Duo vs. Roadkill & Danny Doring
I like how you set it up. Roadkill and Doring dominate and it seems like it we will new champions. Jindrak is out and then HBCade is set for the Doomsday but Jindrak saves himself with the belts. I think that Vince will reprimand the duo and tell them if they have another DQ, they lose the title.

Flair and Batista know that they did the job well. I hope that the homecoming will be great as you already sanctioned one dream match.

Christian still has a vendetta against the Undertaker even though he pinned him cleanly.

your lack of GRAPE FRUITS!!!

The first funny comment of the night. Vince is involved tonight. Christian has a big match next week with the no holds barred, but maybe Raw homecoming would be better.

3rd Match:
Randy Orton vs. Rene Dupree w/ Kenzo Suzuki & Hiroko
I like how you had Orton go against one guy and then two more obstacles. It makes him look better, not that he does not look strong to begin with. He has had the momentum train since Bad Blood and his AMAZING face turn which I acclaim you night and day for.

I guess that the new ECW champion are looking for more revenge. I see a match at Nemesis or even the homecoming. HBCade and Jindrak are chickens! I am glad that you kept Marc Lloyd 8.5/10

Who is facing Sting?? 8/10

I like the collaboration between Cena and Orton. Hold on, I have to go dig up a quote that I made on the last Raw show review
Shucks, I cannot find it! But I vividly remember saying that Orton and Cena would team together to take out DX. I hope that they take out DX. Another great match made. I hope that we do not see a turn right now, as I do not think a Cena and Orton feud should occur seeing that you have already done one. I cannot wait for this match. Friends for one match and adversaries for another! 10/10

4th Match:
Trish Stratus & Gail Kim vs. Jazz & Molly Holly
I have not seen Shaniqua yet. Nice win for the faces, I want to know when you will do something with the title seeing that the invitational is not working too well for title changes.

Flair is funny! I blow my nose with that type of money. McMahon steals Foley’s quotes and he sanctions another great match. The next two weeks are stacked with matches. 9/10

Sting vs. Marty Jannetty
So the opponent was Jannetty! That is a real shocker seeing that they teamed together fourteen years ago or something. Not the main event that I would like to see if I were a fan at the show as it is old vs. old.

HBK has an announcement. A real opponent? Quite a devious trick against Sting.

Sting vs. X-Pac
Sting defeats HBK’s old buddy. HBK is running out. HHH is next. I guess X – Pac worked out a deal with the inferior company. Sting defeats him with the deathlock. I like that you switched the finishers.

Another opponent?

Sting vs. Kevin Nash
His opponent is not Nash, it is generic big man one. I saw his match against Undertaker, and his powerbomb was the worst thing in the world. I choked on my food, and I did not have anything in my mouth! This guy sucks and is he not under contract with an inferior group? Quick match and Sting just defeated all of HBK’s cronies as you guys across the ocean blue say.

Seven matches and some strong promos. This is one of your better Raws and I was intrigued at every turn. 10/10

The Bottomline
Few things, I can see Marty as he is on a WWE contract, but if you mention that X Pac and Nash are on TNA contracts that it is not a great move to put them on the show. You can have them, just do not mention TNA. I liked the promos as matches were made for Nemesis and the next two weeks. I did have one major problem, despite the fact that I hate the guy. Where is Edge? After all the bickering, he will complain about Christian.

Re: Being the booker

Wolf Guy, it came down to a few things,
1) Watch Saturday Night Live
2) Review the second match that I am obligated to
3) Review Wrestlemania
4) Review Great American Bash

After much debating, I have delegated number four. Since this will take me a long time, I ask the following from you,

1) Be grateful as it is hard for me to review something twice.
2) Review NYR when I post it again
3) Add rep??

Sunday Night Heat is not a necessary element, but one that it nice to include. You typed yours very well, and there was nothing wrong with the announce team of Romero and Torrie. I liked the Tajiri promo. He does that in Smackdown vs. Raw. Stupid Harvard grad, practicing his acceptance speech!! Let the real thing begin!!!

Date: 3rd July
Location: MCI Centre; Washington D.C:
That is pretty ironic to say the least. The day before Independence Day and it is in the Nation’s capital. You certainly have a good mind.

Opening Video: There are so many things that can be used as the theme is Great American and Independence Day. Ex – President is pretty vague, points taken off for not being detailed. Just kidding, it is fine. I do not know any Prime Ministers of Ireland. Nice to see the managers depicted as Presidents!! I like how you use the constitution, but then you switch to the matches and the feuds. JBL and Eddie have a heated feud. Not as good as Mania, but nothing is. 10/10

Spelling and Grammar – I honestly did not spot a blemish. 10/10

Length – Eighty six pages is exceptionally exceptional for a single brand PPV. Do you agree with the Lance Armstrong theory? 10/10

Tazz is funny with the Spanish and French deal.

The Matt Fact is: “Matt eats breakfast once a day”

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, that is some funny stuff. I like how you can incorporate humor and seriousness into shows. Certainly will be odd seeing Hardy with the Dudley Boys. If my impeccable memory serves me correct, this match has a bizarre finish.

6 Man Elimination Tag Team Table Match:
Dudley Boyz & Matt Hardy vs. Simon Dean, Chris Masters & Kanyon
Violence is a very nice way to start off the PPV!!! The latter team is almost as interesting as the former team. This would have been mass chaos if this was a tornado match, so nice to see that it is a regular tag match. Certainly is chaos to begin the match. The Simon success steal the Dudleys patented call. They have got to be upset. Now the Dudley’s do it!! I thought that the Simon Success was done, but Masters made the save and good – bye D – Von!! Hardy saves the day for Bubba. It is so weird seeing Hardy and Bubba collaborating. Kanyon eliminates Bubba!!! I think that Hardy eliminates all of his opponents, and he does indeed. He does it in style. A leg drop from the top rope to Chris Masters!!! Simon saves Kanyon and kills himself in the process. I remember now, everybody comes back for no apparent reason. The Dudley’s get the tables and Hardy hits the Twist of Fate for the victory. Powerbomb to Dean from Bubba and 3 – D to Masters as well!!! Quite a nice match to set the tone for the show. I still am having trouble comprehending this team!!! 9/10

Heyman and Lesnar are quite confident and they have every right to be as Heyman does win the post. But Hart comes back!!!

Eric is talking to his big man, but Morgan is not as confident as the other two are.

WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match:
Paul London vs. Akio w/Sakoda
It is obvious that we will see some heel tactics from Akio and Sakoda. I like how you started, the quick covers and kickouts!! London was going aerial and then Sakoda distracted him. Akio could have taken advantage but he does not. London hits the 450 splash but Sakoda puts Akio’s foot on the rope. Akio can perform powerbombs?? Does not make sense at all!! London kicks out and then Akio gets his foot on the ropes from a tornado DDT. Akio nails A GUTBUSTER FROM THE TOP ROPE but London kicks out!! London then hits the 450 splash for the hard fought victory. I thought that this was a great no stipulation match. It had high impact and exciting kickouts! 10/10

AMW certainly do utilize America.

WWE Tag Team Championships Match:
America’s Most Wanted vs. William Regal & Lance Storm
Really odd order of matches so far in my opinion!! I like the beginning of the match, I sort of skipped the next few parts. I see that James Storm has been isolated. I am a big fan of the isolation to the faces and then a hot tag made. James Storm makes the hot tag to Chris Harris. Harris has the momentum, and then Regal nails him with the brass knucks!! AMW hit the Death Sentence in a very strong match. They retain the titles in style. Once again, a very strong match! The finish was an exciting one. 9/10

JBL gives a nice monologue

Grudge Match:
Brock Lesnar w/ Paul Heyman vs. Chris Jericho
Lesnar has been in some grudge matches as of late. Where is Heyman going?? Jericho is working on the knee. Test of strength is not the best idea for Jericho. Brock lifts Jericho up onto his shoulders, and delivers an F5 onto the steel ring post!!!!!!!!!! That is reminiscent to Smackdown and that might kill Jericho in that match here. A very nice spot in the match as it makes the face look like a big underdog. Oh no, the knee meets the steel steps!! Jericho is in big trouble. I hate those belly suplexes, Brock does not even execute them well. Never seen Lesnar do a spine buster, then again, the only match I have seen is Wrestlemania XX. Lesnar kicks out of the Enzuguri. Lesnar is just taunting Chris the whole way. Lesnar is beating Jericho to rubble. Jericho responds with the Lionsualt, but still a kickout from Lesnar!! The F – 5 is no good, but the walls of Jericho are. Lesnar fights out and then hits a F – 5, but Jericho kicks out!! Never mind, Lesnar wins with another F – 5 a minute later. No complaints about this match whatsoever!! I thought that Jericho would win here after he was the big time underdog, but the heel comes back to win. Where is Heyman?? 10/10

Ha, Christoper Nowinski tries sucking up and he is denied.

The Lesnar and Angle segment leads to the triple threat at Summerslam.

10 Man Gauntlet Match:
(To determine the #1 Contender for the Cruiserweight Championship)
Billy Kidman vs. Chavo Guerrero vs. Funaki vs. Jamie Noble vs. Nunzio vs. Scotty 2 Hotty vs. Shannon Moore vs. Spike Dudley vs. Tajiri vs. Ultimo Dragon
Always nice to see one of these, especially after the title was already defended. Extremely odd order of matches in my opinion still. Tajiri eliminates the Dragon early, but you need the early eliminations. Nunzio is gone quickly as well. The runt of the Dudley litter eliminates Tajiri was in there long enough to look good. Noble makes quick work of Dudley. Moore goes down after putting up a fight. Hotty is here but he is worthless and he is eliminated. Good thinking!! All he can do is dance!! Dangit, Funaki is gone as quick as he enters. Kidman knocks out Noble who dominated for way too long. Kidman vs. Chavo is a real match. Classic is here to make the save for his son a few times. Kidman kicks out of the chair. The shooting star splash is good and Kidman will face his friend at Summerslam in an exciting ladder match and lose. A few problems with the length of some people’s match, but that is it as this was great. 8.5/10

Now Eric is trying to be nice. Linda makes him call her Mrs. McMahon. Hart is allowed to call her Linda. That is funny.

WWE United States Championship; Triple Threat Match:
Eddie Guerrero vs. J.B.L vs. Chris Benoit
We have it covered from South to North. Eddie is from Mexico, JBL is from the USA, and Benoit is from Canada. This is the match that I have wanted to see all night. Eddie and Benoit fight while JBL just sits around. Reminds me of Armageddon. They realize what they are doing and then they attack JBL. I like the chops. They were on a roll but Benoit goes for the cover and Eddie breaks it up. Benoit and Eddie are at it once again. JBL is just having some fun. Some great action between Benoit and Guerrero. Get JBL out of there and it would be as great as the opener of Wrestlemania. Benoit is chopping Guerrero to a red target. Benoit nails a German suplex off the top rope!! I will try that in a PPV match soon. That is pretty cool. Benoit breaks the count after JBL makes an attempt to pick up the scraps. JBL is actually wrestling. Just get him out of there and let the wrestlers wrestle while the speaker delivers funny monologues. Benoit and JBL go at it. JBL mocks the Nature Boy and then goes into the turnbuckle that HE exposed. Benoit almost wins and then Eddie nails Benoit with a cross body. JBL rolls out and lets the wrestlers wrestle now. I hope someone goes through the announce table. Eddie barely survives. I think that the match is now on it’s last legs as it is occurred for quite a while now. Here we go! IT IS BENOIT TIME. BENOIT NAILS FIVE CONSECUTIVE GERMAN SUPLEXES ON JBL! HE GOES FOR HIS HEADBUTT BUT HE MISSES!! Eddie pulled JBL away. I would have waited till after the headbutt, because both Benoit and JBL would be hurt. The sharpshooter is locked in on the stock market success. Eddie breaks the hold and then Benoit goes head first into the barricade after he misses a suicide dive. The three amigos are hit, but the third is a superplex. There is some innovation! Benoit hits the Swandive now!! There are no countouts in a triple threat match!! Eddie breaks the count when Benoit is this close to becoming champion. JBL hits a fall away slam to the outside!! Eddie hits the Frog Splash on Benoit but he is hurt. JBL picks up the scraps for the win. A very heel like win that I have seen before. JBL is the US champion after Eddie holds it for seven months. My only complaint is your apprehension of rules. Maybe I am wrong, but I think that I am correct. 9.5/10

The next GM. Heyman is out here. Now Bischoff is here. Hart lays down the law and Linda continues, but Eric’s right hand, the Coach is out here now. The Coach was funny, but then he was shown the door. RICO is here. Time for the humor. Eric has a nice butt! He receives pink pants and Paul E gets a wig. Farooq is funny as well. It’s the APA man, not AFA. I drink beer and smoke cigars, I don’t drink wine, and I don’t smoke guys!!! DAMN!!!” Funny stuff!!

Impromptu Match:
(Winner becomes Interim SD GM - Over the top rope match)
Eric Bischoff vs. Paul Heyman
Heyman is GM but the only PPV he oversees is Summerslam.

When will the feud between Angle and hart start??

#1 Contenders Match; Winner faces WWE Champion at Summer Slam:
Triple H vs. Kurt Angle
I have been reviewing for ninety minutes, so I am going to take this one off. I will skim it and leave my remarks. I know that Angle wins here and then the title and Summerslam, and hopefully he drops it to Benoit who has not been the champion in this thread for some reason. After some pedigrees, and Angle slams, HHH taps out.

Heyman announces the best of seven series which culminates at Summerslam.

Maria has another ditzy moment and the Rock delivers his usual great monologue.

WWE Championship Match:
The Rock vs. Goldberg
Okay, I know that the bald headed Goldberg wins, but I will do my best to follow the match anyways. Kind of took a while for a cover. Belly – to – belly on a ramp is brutal. I like the Bear hug as a way to slow down the match. A military press into a spinebuster is being innovative!!! I like this so far. Rock Bottom is hit by Jabroni beatin, alllllllowwwwwwwww, pie eatin, trail blazin, eye brow raisin, not afraid to sweat, not afraid to bleed, gonna beat your ass GUARAN-DAMN-TEED, Peoples Champ The Rrrrrock!!!! However, Goldberg kicks out. Goldberg makes the ropes after a sharpshooter, which I though is in a perfect place in the match. Goldberg hits a spear, and another spear and then a jackhammer! This is out of hand. Goldberg wins and it is aftermath time now. The Rock extends his hand and Goldberg sucker punches him. What a hellacious spear!! Goldberg than proceeds to hit a jackhammer through the announce table. This is smart. It sells that the Rock has a legitimate injury and that he cannot wrestle while he makes a movie. It then sets up for the Rock to screw Goldberg at Summerslam and Clash of the Champions. 10/10

Entertainment – This is surely something that I would have liked to view in any shape or form. It was a great PPV. I did not see either GAB, but there is no way that they compare to yours. 10/10

Bottomline – Five pages is not too bad, that is the same as the last review. I am sorry about the Angle and HHH match, I am just too tired. I think that this is your third or fourth best PPV. Wrestlemania XXI is first, Summerslam is second, and Clash of the Champions is third. However, that makes this your best single brand PPV. I guess it will stay this way as the next single brand PPV is not for a while. If I could adhere to your standards for one PPV, I would jump for joy. Thank you for taking the effort that is required to produce a great show. If you could do the few things that I asked you to, I would be pleased. I am going to fill out the form that you asked us to at Wrestlemania.

Thoughts - Best Single Brand PPV of all time
Likes – Most of it
Dislikes – Just a few minor things
Favorite Match – The USA title match
Worst Match – None
Favorite Moment – Benoit nailing the five Germans. He did that in November 22, 2004.
Least Favorite Moment –When Funaki was eliminated

Re: Being the booker

I for one actually liked your other thread with The Hollywood Event better because it was more related to WWE wrestling today but returning to Being The Booker is also good, as long as you keep writing here. I don't see the point in reposting everything but it's not my thread. Looking forward to the continuation of this already legendary thread.

Re: Being the booker

RAW; September 26th; Fort Worth:


A video plays showing the best clips from the five years of WWE Raw on Spike TV

Opening Video


Jim Ross:
Emotions are running high, with just two weeks until Nemesis, The fans in attendance are ready for an explosive night, on the final Raw broadcast on Spike TV, before next weeks homecoming, and Coach, what a night it’s gonna be!!

The Coach: What a line up J.R. Shawn Michaels faces Sting’s mystery opponent, after Sting last week overcame not one, not two, but three opponents, before he sent Shawn Michaels packing!!!

Jim Ross: Indeed. And I gotta admit, Sting looks more focused right now, than he has since he came to the WWE, and what a time to find your focus, with a chance to become World Champion in less than two weeks. But that’s not all Coach, Shaniqua’s home town challenge has once again been answered, but this time, she may have bitten off more than she can chew, as Texas native, Jacqueline will step up to the plate tonight.

The Coach: Oh boy, with Shaniqua exactly three weeks away from hitting a milestone year as Champion, it could all come crashing down tonight.

Jim Ross: Well, I agree Coach, but lets not forget to mention tonight’s main event, pitting Christian against The Undertaker, in a Summer Slam rematch!!

The Coach: Can Christian overcome The Deadman for a second time?? It’s No Holds Barred, but I honestly think that Captain Charisma can step it up another level tonight.

**BREAK IT DOWN** The four members of DX enter to a huge amount of boo’s, as we prepare for the opening contest. HBK sets some instructions for his men, before leaving them, and going back again, to prepare for his match later.

Jim Ross: What a way to kick us off here!!! 3 on 2 handicap match, as Cade, Jindrak & Reigns of DX will take on two men with a score to settle in the mould of John Cena and Randy Orton.

1st Match: 3 on 2 Handicap Match:
Garrison Cade, Mark Jindrak & Luther Reigns vs. Randy Orton & John Cena
Long opener, with Cena and Orton dominating the first few minutes. Eventually, DX slow it down, after taking a few moments to re-group on the outside, slowly get back into the match.
The DX members begin to grasp a hold of the match, using the cheap heel tactics, such as distractions, illegal double team moves and illegal tags. The trio keep Orton down in the ring, leaving Cena frustrated on the outside, desperate for a tag in, as we go into the commercial.
Following a commercial, we return with DX still in control, wearing the Legend Killer down, as Cena grows more frustrated. We are shown a clip from during the break, where Orton was set to tag, only for Cade to run around ringside, and pull Cena off the apron, which stopped the tag from taking place.
Orton continues to try and fight back, but the numbers game is too much for the time being. The trio continue the beat down, and start to become overconfident, slapping Orton around the head, but their cockiness backfires, as Cade catches Orton’s foot as Randy goes for a kick. Cade starts hopping, making fun of the Legend Killer, until Orton scores with an enziguri!!! Orton crawls, and crawls, as does Cade … who tags in Jindrak … as Orton tags Cena!!!
Jindrak stops in his tracks as Orton tags, and then tries to back off, but Cena tackles him down right away, before clotheslining Luther over the top rope, and hitting a spine buster on Cade. Cena hit’s a spinning power bomb on Jindrak, getting a two, before hitting the 5 Knuckle Shuffle. Reigns again comes after Cena, but the former champion low bridges, and Reigns momentum takes him right over the top to the floor.
Cena gets Jindrak up, and into position for the FU, Garrison Cade tries to stop him, but is met with an RKO from Orton!!! Cena delivers the FU, and covers, 1...2...3!!!
Winners: John Cena and Randy Orton
Cena and Orton have their hands raised, before shaking hands together, and raising each others hand. They share some words, before celebrating to the fans some more, going to each turnbuckle, whilst DX leave up the ramp, with Reigns having to help both Cade and Jindrak.
Jim Ross: John Cena, and Randy Orton just two of the six men involved in the elimination match for the World Heavyweight Championship at Nemesis, with a major win here tonight, against the odds.


A video plays of Rey Mysterio’s days in ECW as part of the influx of Extreme Lucha Libre. We see him performing some of the insane moves from early in his career, before cutting to a dark, poorly lit room, with Mysterio sitting, looking directly at the camera…

Rey Mysterio: Rob Van Dam, be ready, be prepared, and be careful what you wish for, because at Nemesis, you get the extreme Rey Mysterio. Be careful … what you wish for…

The video ends, before we see Rob Van Dam backstage, watching the vignette on a monitor. The camera closes in to his face, and we see RVD smiling.

Back to ringside…

Jim Ross: Folks, it is just two weeks away. RVD taking on Rey Mysterio, in an ECW Rules match for the Intercontinental Championship. That enmity will come to a hardcore conclusion at Nemesis, once and for all, and in just a few moments, RVD will be in action. Tell us more Coach.

The Coach: Well J.R, it’s quite elementary really. In a tune up of sorts, RVD is set to face Stevie Richards, in an ECW Rules match, where Van Dam is gonna show Rey Mysterio just what he has got himself into.

2nd Match: ECW Rules Match:
Stevie Richards vs. Rob Van Dam w/Bill Alfonso
Despite getting off to a good start, Richards is obliterated by RVD, who turns it up a notch, thanks to the guidance of Alfonso in his corner. RVD takes the match to the extreme, before nailing Richards with the rolling thunder on the outside. He rolls him back in, before Alfonso gets into the ring with RVD. He holds a chair up at Stevies face, allowing Van Dam to hit the Van Terminator. RVD then goes up top, and hit’s the Five Star Frog Splash for the elementary three count.
Winner: Rob Van Dam
RVD is victorious on Raw, less than two weeks from the ECW Rules match at Nemesis. He leaves the ring, but stops before walking up the ramp. He has an idea, and asks Alfonso for the chair, which he gives him. Van Dam gets back in, and pulls the bloody Richards to the corner, sitting him by the bottom rope, with a chair resting against his face. RVD then climbs to the top rope, and dives across the ring, nailing the patented Van Daminator on the defenceless Richards.

Jim Ross: That is uncalled for!!! Van Dam made his point during the match. There was absolutely no need for that sickening display afterward too.

The Coach: Get used to it J.R, RVD is the next Intercontinental Champion.

Jim Ross: I wouldn’t be so sure Coach. Rey Mysterio has beaten the odds countless times in the past, and I can see the champion doing it once again at Nemesis.


We return with highlights of what went down before the commercial, then the camera cuts to the parking lot, which at this moment of time is empty.

Jim Ross: We are still expecting the arrival of Mick Foley, at any moment, after two weeks ago, he was brutally assaulted, and that’s what it was, an assault, at the hands of Ric Flair and Batista. Our General Manager had been in hospital for eight days as a result of the attack, the longest amount of time that Foley has ever spent in a hospital bed, and you think, that man has been blown up by a C4 explosive in a Deathmatch in Japan, he had an ear ripped off in Munich, and he has been thrown off a Hell in a Cell.

The Coach: And in two weeks, Foley takes on Flair in a streetfight J.R.

Jim Ross: It’ll be Foleys first match in a year, which was incidentally, at Nemesis last year, in a Streetfight.

The Coach: And right now, backstage, it seems the locker room is divided in two groups, one which is pro Foley, and one, which is pro Flair.

Jim Ross: Indeed it is Coach. But next week, Raw is going home, for a three hour spectacular, and folks, we’ve just been informed about PART of the amazing line up, next week in Cleveland at the Gund Arena… In a steel cage match, Randy Orton faces Luther Reigns!!! And how about this, our main event, for the first time ever, in a non title match, the original Nemesis main event, Shawn Michaels takes on Sting!!

The Coach: Raw is undoubtedly coming home J.R, and what a homecoming, with a dream match, and a cage match!!!

Backstage, we cut to the DX locker room…

Mark Jindrak: Shawn, we’re really sorry man. We screwed up tonight.

Shawn Michaels: Don’t worry about it guys, I’ve got better plans. First of all, Orton is taken care of. Next week, the big man here, has him all to himself inside of an unforgiving cage. You know what you have to do Luther don’t ya??

Reigns nods

Shawn Michaels: Christian and The Undertaker are gonna wear themselves out tonight, beating the hell out of each other, so I don’t need to worry about them, and Sting gets a mouth full of my boot next week.

Garrison Cade: (Nodding) But Shawn, what about Cena??

Shawn Michaels: That my friends, is where it gets interesting. I’ll talk to ya more about it later, but in about ten minutes I’m facing someone I don’t even know. MJ, HBCade, try and find out who the hell Sting has planned for me to face, but do it quickly.

Mark Jindrak: Who do we ask though Shawn??

Cade rolls his eyes, as if Jindrak asked a stupid question, than jabs his partners arm.

Garrison Cade: We ask Sting, dummy!!!

HBK looks at HBCade as if to ask if he’s serious. Michaels looks at Luther, then speaks to him…

Shawn Michaels: Umm… Luther, you go with them.

Luther nods again, and makes a gesture to Cade and Jindrak to get them out of the room.

Back to ringside…

Jim Ross: Well Coach, if y-

**Just Close Your Eyes** Christian and Tyson Tomko enter the arena to a major dose of heat from the fans.

Jim Ross: What the hell is Christian doing out here?? His match isn’t until later, Coach.

The Coach: You say that as if it’s a bad thing J.R. I love seeing more of Captain Charisma. Just love it!!!

Christian is handed the mic, and begins to speak.

Christian: You know, I’d think that when a true winner entered this state, he’d get a heroes welcome, but since you people are so used to losing, and being losers, I can understand you don’t know how to cheer when greatness enters the arena.

Crowd gives heat

Christian: But anyway, that’s not what I came out to talk about. No, you see, tonight, I’m gonna make history. And no, I’m not gonna enter a rodeo contest, like you typical Texans, n-

Crowd start an asshole

Christian: You people will have to be more precise, I mean, this arena is full of assholes.

Crowd gives more heat

Christian: It’s funny. Will Rogers once called Fort Worth ‘where the west begins’. Personally, I think he forgot to mention it’s also where the rest of the world ends.

Crowd starts a Christian sucks chant.

Christian: What?? It is. This place must’ve got stuck in some kind of demented time warp in 1971, because nothing appears to have improved in that time frame.

Crowd gives more heat

Christian: I was expecting some glitz and glamour, but instead, when Tomko and I arrived here, I didn’t know whether I’d be getting to this arena in a car, or on a horse!!

Crowd gives more heat.

Christian: None of that matters though. The WWE didn’t have the hindsight to realise that the final Raw on Spike TV would be held in this dungeon … but in the end, it kinda works out to hold the final Raw on a network way behind the times, in a City that should be part of a museum.

Crowd continues to give Captain Charisma heat.

Christian: But right now, I’m gonna move on, and talk about my match tonight, in which I destroy The Undertaker. My peeps know I can do it, so does Tomko. Even though I beat The Deadman fair and square at Summer Slam, but that didn’t seem to get my any recognition. Tonight though, when I beat The Phenom for a second time, in front of Christian’s Coalition, everyone from Vince McMahon to the Easter Bunny, is gonna sit up, and take notice of Captain Charisma!!!

Crowd seemingly gives a mixed reaction.

Christian: Whether you people like it or not, you know that I am truly a main eventer, trapped in a tangled web of mid carders surrounding me. But tonight, I prove I’m more than a one hit wonder. I prove that I’m the new face of this company, and I prove that I am truly worthy of the World Heavyweight Championship.

Another fairly mixed reaction, with the fans showing some respect for Christian.

Christian: Last week, Vince McMahon said to me he wanted a more serious side of Captain Charisma, well Vince, I hope you watch tonight, because in the No Holds Barred main event, I wont be clowning around, but I will be kicking The Undertakers ass … before heading into Louisville, Kentucky, on October 9th, and becoming for the first time, the World Heavyweight Champion, because that’s how I roll!!!

**Just Close Your Eyes** hits again, and Christian leaves the ring, and we cut to a commercial


Jim Ross: Welcome back to Raw folks, and before the commercial, we saw a determined, focused Christian make his intentions clear, that he was gonna beat The Undertaker here tonight, and then go on to Nemesis, and for the first time, take the World Heavyweight Title!!
The Coach: That’s how he rolls J.R. That’s how he rolls.

3rd Match: Non - Title Match:
Shawn Michaels vs. Mystery Opponent

Michaels waits in the ring for his opponent, as Sting’s music hits into the arena, which gets a good pop. He stands at the top of the ramp, mic in hand, and begins to speak.

Sting: Shawn, you thought it was smart to give me three opponents last week, right?? Well, I wont be playing that game with you, because honestly, I don’t think I’ll need to. You actually know this guy quite well, because last week, he wrestled me for you. I called the guy up on Tuesday, and congratulated him on a great performance on Raw the previous night, then the strangest thing happened … he offered to wrestle you tonight. Shawn, without further ado ... ITS SHOWTIME … I give you your opponent, and former tag team partner … MARTY JANNETTY!!!

**Rockin Rockers** Marty Jannetty enters to a nice pop, shaking hands with Sting, before running to the ring to meet Michaels, who looks flabbergasted that Jannetty is his opponent.

The former Rockers put on a really decent contest, with Jannetty dominating HBK in the early going. Michaels turns the tide with the usual cheap tactics, but he gets too cocky early on, and Jannetty dropkicks him out of the ring. Michaels then grabs his title belt, and begins to walk up the ramp, to be counted out, but waiting at the top is Sting, with his baseball bat in hand. HBK has second thoughts, as we head into a commercial.
We return, with Michaels now in full control of the match. We see clips of during the break, where he decided to get back into the ring, and fight it out. Jannetty missed a shoulder into the corner, and now HBK has taken advantage, wearing down the shoulder of his former tag partner.
Marty shows his fight, and makes a comeback, but has a Rocker Dropper blocked by HBK. Michaels then goes for the Sweet Chin Music, but Jannetty ducks, and Michaels misses. He comes back, and is knocked down by Jannetty, who quickly goes up top, but as he comes down, HBK gets a foot up. Jannetty staggers around the ring, and is put down with a front slam from HBK. Michaels goes up top, drops the elbow, before finishing the job with Sweet Chin Music.
Winner: Shawn Michaels
Michaels has his arm raised, and he parades around the ring with the title belt, with Sting standing at the top of the ramp, looking impressed, clapping HBK’s hard earned victory tonight.


Smackdown Rebound:
- Triple H smashes up Eddie Guerrero’s low rider with his trusty sledgehammer.
- Benoit and Angle win a tag match together, as the tension between them rises.
- Chris Jericho beats JBL’s Chief of Staff, Jamie Noble.
- The Rock is beaten in the main event by Brock Lesnar, and afterwards, Lesnar and Goldberg once again beat down The Rock 2 on 1, with no help for The Great One.

Back to ringside…

Jim Ross: Folks, we are less than two weeks away from another joint brand Pay Per View, WWE Nemesis. The card couldn’t be looking any better as we speak Coach.

The Coach: Darn right J.R. And right now, I’d like to thank Adema, for the use of the song ‘Planets’ as the official theme song, off their new album, titled Planets also.

Jim Ross: Six men battle it out for one championship Coach. Shawn Michaels defends the world title, against Randy Orton, Sting, Christian, The Undertaker & John Cena, under elimination rules!!!

The Coach: So many rivalries inter twined there J.R. Cena and Michaels, Michaels and Orton, Orton and Cena, Cena and Christian, Christian and Undertaker, Taker and HBK, HBK and Sting, and that list could go on and on J.R. Who will step up though and outlast the rest??

Jim Ross: Of course, lets not forget, Smackdown too. Chris Jericho aims to be the first man to defeat JBL in singles competition, and take the United States Title, in a Stretcher Match!!!

The Coach: It’s an appropriate match for these two to settle it. This entire sage really became personal after JBL wheeled Jericho off the Smackdown stage six weeks ago.

Jim Ross: It’ll be ECW Rules, as Rey Mysterio will be challenged by a hungry, bitter, maniacal Rob Van Dam for the Intercontinental Championship.

The Coach: This one has been brewing for months J.R, and in just thirteen days, it all comes to a head, when these two engage in a tremendous war.

Jim Ross: And Eddie Guerrero has exactly twenty minutes to finally beat Triple H. In three singles matches between them this year, Triple H holds three victories. Can Eddie finally overcome The Game.

The Coach: No way. Triple H is on a totally different level to Latino Heat, and for the fourth time in one year, Eddie Guerrero will find that out.

Jim Ross: Lets not forget that Mick Foley takes on Ric Flair, in the most personal of fights. Streetfight rules, between two men with a genuine hatred, and it all goes down on October 9th

The Coach: You will not get a more heated match all this year J.R. Something has gotta give, but what??

Jim Ross: And the Smackdown Main Event. Kurt Angle, the WWE Champion, who is on the roll of his life this year, takes on the Rabid Wolverine, Chris Benoit, who has never wanted the world title as much. Another chapter is set to be written in this epic, EPIC rivalry.

The Coach: You’ve said it all in a nutshell, J.R.

Jim Ross: But not just that, as I am getting word through my headset, that next week, on Raw Homecoming, even Smackdown will be getting in on the action, as Raw will be allowing a Smackdown showcase match. To find out who will be competing on Raw next Monday night from Smackdown, tune in the Smackdown this Thursday night.

Backstage, Todd Grisham stands by with Carlito and Stacy Kiebler.

Todd Grisham: At this time, I am joined by none other than Carlito, Caribbean Cool, along with Stacy Kiebler, and Carlito, you wanted to make an announcement??

Carlito: Carlito doesn’t just have an announcement Todd … I have an ANNOUNCEMENT!!! This is gonna be the biggest thing to hit Raw, since … since … well, since ever!!! You see recently Todd, Carlito hasn’t been happy, and neither has Stacy here. The spotlight hasn’t been on Carlito for quite some time, but next week, that’s all gonna change.
The biggest night in Raw history, becomes even bigger Todd, and why?? Because Carlito is debuting his own show. That’s right. And it’ll be way better than those un-cool shows from the past like Pipers Pit, and it’ll be better than Chris Jericho’s updated Highlight Reel on Smackdown. This show, is gonna be cool, and it’ll be called … Carlito’s Cabana!! And dat?? Das cool.

Todd Grisham: That sounds terrific Carlito. Who is you’re first guest gonna be though??

Carlito: Oh, this one is cool. Todd?? Would you like to be a guest on the Cabana??

Todd Grisham: That would be great Carlito, I’d-

Carlito: That is the type of thing, that you’ll never hear for real Todd. Carlito wont be having lame guests, you can go to the Highlight Reel for that. No my guest is gonna kick off the Cabana in style. Todd, my guest, will be a former WWE Champion. He’s a former WCW Champion. This guy has headlined Wrestle Mania’s. He’s headlined more Wrestle Mania’s than any else, ever, at least until Carlito wrestles at Wrestle Mania.
My guest, Todd, if you havent already worked it out, will be none other, than the Immortal, Hulk Hogan!!!

Crowd goes insane

Carlito: And dat?? Das cool …… Brother.

Carlito looks at his apple, and prepares to take a bit, but in the end, smiles, and throws the apple to Grisham, which slips out of his hand. CCC laughs, as does Stacy, before walking off.

4th Match: Womens Championship Match:
Shaniqua vs. Local Jobber
The champion takes the challenger very lightly, which allows her challenger to gain some offence, but Shaniqua eventually turns it up a gear, and makes the lady pay a heavy price for the early part of the match, dominating her, before finishing the match with a power bomb.
Winner: Shaniqua
Shaniqua wins, yet again, which leaves her just three weeks short of hitting a full year as the womens champion.

Backstage, we see Christian with Tyson Tomko, getting a cup of coffee. Shawn Michaels then passes, and Christian speaks up.

Christian: Hey, look at that Tyson, that guy must be minding my belt.

Shawn laughs out loud (Fake Laugh) then turns around.

Shawn Michaels: Come again??

Christian: I said, YOU, are minding MY belt.

Michaels lets out another fake laugh.

Shawn Michaels: That’s what I thought I heard. Thing is, unless your name is Shawn Michaels, this title doesn’t belong to you.

Michaels shows Christian the name plate, up close.

Christian: So?? All it takes is five seconds to rip that off, and put another one, with my name on it.

Tomko nods

Shawn Michaels: That’s not gonna happen boy, because just like I always do, The Showstopper, is gonna walk into Nemesis, World Champion, and he’s walking out again, as World Heavyweight Champion.

Christian: Well, to be honest with ya, Shawn, don’t get your hopes up, because when I beat you, and Marky Mark, and Orton, and Taker, and Sting, I don’t want you minding the belt for me anymore.

Shawn Michaels: Christian, you’re talking yourself in circles. I already shot down that point a few minutes ago. For someone with so much, ‘Charisma’, you lack intelligence.

Christian: And for someone who calls himself the ‘sexy boy’, I don’t see too many women flocking around by your side these days ‘toy boy’. Or should I say, ‘tedium granddad’

Michaels smiles, then quickly slaps Christian. Tomko steps in, and HBK backs up a little, smiling.

Christian: You’re lucky Tomko is standing in my way, Michaels, or I’d kick your ass right now!!!

Tyson Tomko: Do you want me to move out of the way, and let you get him??

Christian replies immediately.

Christian: No stay right there.

Michaels walks off, smiling.

Christian: Hey Michaels, watch my match later, and I’ll show you a true Showstopper … ME!!! Captain Charisma!!!

Christian holds his mouth, and looks angry, as we cut away to a commercial


**Have a Nice Day** Mick Foley’s music hits to an breath-taking reaction. The Raw General Manager enters the arena, still looking banged up, and very, very angry. He salutes the fans, before walking to the ring. Foley is handed a mic, and waits for a ‘Foley’ chant to die down, before speaking…

Mick Foley: Forgive me tonight if I don’t seem to be in the best of moods, but I’m a fair man, so before I get to the serious stuff, I’d like to say that it’s great to be back, in Fort Worth, Texas.

Crowd pops. Foley doesn’t play along, and looks incredibly serious, just nodding to the appreciate fans.

Mick Foley: Fourteen days ago, on Raw, something happened … I’m not talking about Shaniqua making another successful Womens Title defence … I’m not even talking about Sting’s controversial victory in a fatal four way, but I’m talking about this…

*** Flair hits Foley with the microphone, backing him into the corner. Flair begins to pound at Foley, but the GM fights back. He starts to back Flair away, and knocks him down with a big right. Batista though, helps Flair, and clotheslines Foley from behind.

Batista helps Flair to his feet, and Naitch quickly gets his wits together, before beginning to stomp on Foley. Batista drags Mick up, but Foley elbows free, before knocking down Flair with a clothesline. Batista tries to attack him from behind, but Foley catches him first, and backs Batista into the corner.

Mick pummels The Animal, until Ric Flair sneaks up on Foley, and scores with a low blow. Mick drops to his knees in pain, as Batista recovers. He picks Foley up, before driving him down with a vicious spine buster.

On the outside, Flair takes possession of a steel chair. He slides into the ring, and waits for Foley to get up, before SMASHING the chair, across The General Managers skull!!!

Ric Flair stands over Foley, with Batista, and nods at the big man. Batista and Flair then drag Mick out of the ring, and begin to drag him up the ramp, looking over at the announce position. Eventually, they drag the bloody, and lifeless Foley to the announce table, with J.R, Lawler, and Coach all moving out of harms way from Evolution.

… … Cut to table … …

Batista eventually gets Foley in position for the Batista Bomb, but before he hits it, Flair changes his mind, with a wicked smile across his face, points to the stage, with Batista grinning and nodding.

Batista turns around, and with Flair directing traffic, The Animal delivers the Batista Bomb to Foley, with Foley going off the stage!!!!!

Evolution smile over the damage, as EMTs and officials sprint out from behind the curtain.

… … Cut to after a Commercial … …

We see officials and paramedics tend to the General Manager, loading him onto a stretcher, with all three of the commentators not on commentary, but trying to tend to Foley instead. **

Foley rests his arms against the ropes, putting his head down, as the video ends.

Mick Foley: That attack, left me lying in a hospital bed, for eight days. Now, in my career, I’ve taken some tremendous beatings, but never … not once, was I left in a hospital bed for a week. Ric Flair, and lets not forget your puppet, Batista, you did put me in a hospital, for over seven days.

Crowd boos

Mick Foley: And now, two weeks on from being power bombed off a stage, I’ve had time to think. I’ve had time to think this whole situation over. During my week of living through incessant pain, cracked ribs, internal injuries, and a concussion, I was visited by close friends, fellow members of both the Raw and Smackdown roster, Vince McMahon, and of course my family.
And as they came through, and as they left, my anger, my frustration, all kept getting stronger. My children were scared to come near the warmth of their father, my friends couldn’t bring themselves to look at me in a hospital bed, and my fellow wrestlers were in a state of shock, seeing the one time Hardcore Legend in a hospital bed.

Crowd chants for Foley

Mick Foley: And by the time, that Vince came to see Mick Foley in hospital, I was at breaking point. Vince gave me a number of options as to what I wanted to do. I could either call it a day, and resign from my position as General Manager, or I could take a few weeks or months off to think about my decision. The option was given that I could switch brands, and Bret Hart could come to Raw as General Manager, with me going in a separate direction.

Crowd boo’s

Mick Foley: But finally, Vince McMahon made the offer which switched on a light bulb in my head. That offer, was a match with Ric Flair on October 9th, at Nemesis.

Crowd pops

Mick Foley: I didn’t want a match with Ric Flair, hell, I would get disqualified as soon as the match began. I would only take the match, under my conditions, and as I’m sure you are all aware, it’ll be Flair vs. Foley in a streetfight.

Crowd pops

Mick Foley: But, that’s not gonna happen.

Crowd boo’s

Mick Foley: You see Ric, Mick Foleys days of wrestling, are long gone. These days, I prefer to write novels, I prefer to spend time with my children, and I prefer to be running the show, as a General Manager.

Crowd gives a mixed reaction, not sure where Foley is going.

Mick Foley: Ric Flair, you stopped those things from happening, and for this simple man, of simple things, that drove me over the edge!!!

Crowd pops

Mick Foley: And from that, you-

**Evolution** Ric Flair enters the arena, along with Batista to a dose of WOOO’s from the fans. They stand up at the top of the ramp, with Flair set to speak.

Ric Flair: Hold it just a second Mick. You, a so called, Hardcore Legend. A former, King of the Deathmatch, backing out of a fight?? Like I always said, over rated. That word describes you perfectly Foley. Not Hardcore, not legend, and sure as hell no-

Mick Foley: Ric Flair, you’ve said enough these past months, you’ve done enough through actions in the last two weeks alone. Now, it’s my turn, now it’s my turn to ruin your world, and bring it rip it to shreds!!!

Crowd Pops

Mick Foley: Because you forced this Ric Flair. You forced me to become something I don’t want to be. You crossed the line, and now I’m crossing it too!!! Only, it’s not Mick Foley that you’re dealing with any more … when you walk into Freedom Hall October 9th, you’re walking into career suicide, against the REAL King of the Deathmatch, against the real Hardcore legend, and the most sadistic son of a bitch, on the face of this planet, and he has a name Ric Flair, a name you’ll be familiar with … Ric Flair, you’re not facing Mick Foley … but in a streetfight, you’re taking on CACTUS JACK!!!

Crowd goes insane with a pop, followed by a long, loud, ‘Cac-tus Jack’ chant.

Mick Foley: You forced this Flair … You forced a part of me to re-surface, that should never have existed in the first place, and Flair, I hate you for it. On October 9th, Cactus Jack is going straight to Louisville, and he’s going with one thing on his mind. Revenge. And like they say Flair, revenge, is a dish, best served cold … and there is no one more cold hearted, than Cactus Jack … BANG BANG!!!

Ric Flair:

Flair cant speak, with the shock of what he has just heard, as Mick Foleys music hits again, before cutting to a commercial.


Jim Ross: I still have a chill tingling down my spine. In all my years, there has never been any one quite like Cactus Jack, and folks, let me tell ya, you might think that it was Mick Foley in the ring tonight, but after losing a week of his life to Evolution, drastic times, has called for drastic measures, and Cactus Jack has re-surfaced in the WWE!!!

The Coach: What has Ric Flair got himself into J.R??

Jim Ross: A world of trouble Coach, a world of by gawd trouble!!!

The Coach: This … this isn’t fair!!!

Jim Ross: Next week folks, Raw is going home. After five years on Spike TV, Raw is packing up, and heading to it’s real home, and what a line up we have set.

The Coach: I cant wait J.R, just six days from Nemesis too!!!

Jim Ross: And right now, we know, that Randy Orton will face Luther Reigns inside of a solid fifteen foot steel cage!!!

The Coach: If Shawn Michaels has it his way, Randy Orton wont be heading to Nemesis after the cage match next week.

Jim Ross: The debut of Carlito’s Cabana too, and his first ever guest … The Immortal … HULK HOGAN!!!

The Coach: The Hulkster is sure to run wild on the first ever Cabana, but is he cool enough to hang out with Carlito??

Jim Ross: And we are just hearing that Shaniqua will once again be hosting her open invitational, as well as a ECW Rules tune up match for Rey Mysterio, and he will take on the last ever ECW Champion, Rhyno!!!

The Coach: Can anyone stop Shaniqua on her destructive run as Womens Champion?? And will Mysterio overcome the Man Beast in one piece for Nemesis??

Jim Ross: Not to forget the main event. For the first time ever, it’ll be Shawn Michaels taking on Sting. Title not on the line, but a heck of a lot of pride at stake!!!

The Coach: I cant wait J.R, this was originally the Raw main event for Nemesis, lets not forget. First time ever too!!!

Jim Ross: And we are also being told that John Cena will be in action, and through my headset as we speak, I’m being told, that Mick Foley, or should I say, Cactus Jack will be conducting a sit down interview of sorts.

The Coach: That all adds up to the biggest Raw of all time J.R!!!

Jim Ross: Indeed it will be. A three hour special of WWE Raw, coming home next week. Michaels, Sting, Orton, Mysterio, Cena, all in action, and I’m sure we’ll see some old faces show up too!!!

Main Event: No Holds Barred
The Undertaker vs. Christian
A real knock down, drag out brawl, with Christian trying to hit and run in the early going, but Taker seems like he just wants a fight. Christian takes a few moments on the outside a few times, but after continually bailing out, Taker loses his patience, and comes after him.
Christian doesn’t realise, and is hunted down, and beaten up by the Deadman. Taker busts Captain Charisma open with a shot from the steel steps. Undertaker dominates the fight from here, beating Christian around the arena, as CC tries to keep away from him. Eventually, they make it to the announce table, with Taker still in total control, with Christian in a world of trouble. Taker clears the table, and sets up Christian for the Last Ride, but Tyson Tomko saves Christian.
He brawls with Taker, whilst Christian tries to recover. Tomko hasn’t much effect on The Deadman, and is choke slammed through the announce table!!!! By now, Christian is crawling back down the ramp. Undertaker goes in pursuit, as we cut to a commercial.
Following it, we return, and see the action in the ring, with Taker still dominating his bloody opponent. We are shown clips from during the commercial of Christian being booted off the apron, and Taker coming close to victory with a power slam.
Undertaker has Christian almost finished at this point, and sets up for the Tombstone, but Christian slides out, and takes down the Deadman with the reverse DDT!!! He drapes an arm over Undertaker, but only gets a two count. From here though, Christian starts to get into the match. He takes full control over Taker with a low blow - legal in this contest, and comes close again with an inverted DDT, only for a kick out at two.
Now, Christian starts to do whatever he can to put Taker down, almost literally throwing the kitchen sink at Undertaker, but only manages a series of near falls, which forces him to get frustrated. Christian now goes on for his most deadly weapon - the Unprettier. He gets Taker in position, but is pushed into the ropes, before being choke slammed!!! Taker covers … BUT CHRISTIAN KICKS OUT!!!
The fans are in shock, as is Undertaker. The Phenom pulls Christian up, but doesn’t see that Christian has a steel chain in his hand, which he clocks Taker with!!! The Deadman staggers, and Christian places a chair on the mat, before hooking up Taker again … AND NAILS THE UNPRETTIER ONTO A CHAIR!!! Christian gets an arm over Taker, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Christian
The fans are in shock, as once again, despite having to use a weapon or two this time, he has defeated The Undertaker!!! Christian is a bloody mess, as he rolls out of the ring, looking ready for a hospital bed. He falls over as he tries to walk up the ramp, as officials begin to try and help him.

In the ring, Taker suddenly sits up!!! Undertaker has blood also dripping from his face, as he stares up the ramp, at an exhausted Captain Charisma, needing help out of the arena, with the last ever Raw on Spike TV coming to an end.

End of Show


Smackdown; Corpus Christi; September 29th:

Opening Video


Michael Cole: Ten days remain, until Nemesis, and right now, Smackdown is on a knife edge. Tonight, Chris Benoit is in action, as is Triple H, but right now…

Tazz: It’s time for Chris Jericho’s Highlight Reel!!!

Michael Cole: And his guest, will be none other, than his adversary, and his opponent at Nemesis, and that, is JBL.

**5-4-3-2-1 … BANG … BREAK THE WALLS DOWN** Chris Jericho enters the arena to a tremendous reaction from the fans. He walks down the ramp, heading for the ring.

Michael Cole: In ten days, Chris Jericho will challenge for the United States Championship, against the man, that nearly ended his career, JBL, in a aptly made, Stretcher Match.

Tazz: Well, you know, Jericho seems to have bottled some inner rage, because I know if someone tried to end my career, I would be after blood, and I wouldn’t want to wait for it. And now, JBL is his guest??

Jericho is handed a mic, and begins to speak.

Chris Jericho: Welcome one and all, to the HIGHHHHLIGHHHHT REEEEL!!!

Great Response

Chris Jericho: And tonight ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, Jericholics of all ages, my guest, is a man, who by al-

**Longhorn** JBL’s music fills the arena, with Jericho looking unhappy to have JBL’s music cut his speech. JBL is joined by his Cabinet, exiting the limo, before walking to the ring. He climbs in through the ropes, grinning at an angry Chris Jericho.

Chris Jericho: JBL, if I didn’t know any better, I’d say you were hell bent on pissing me off.

JBL smiles, before picking up a mic from the stool.

John ‘Bradshaw‘ Layfield: Chris Jericho, let me tell you something. I do not fret over what type of disposition I put you in. Quite frankly, I couldn’t be bothered waiting for you to run through your spiel, before bringing out the man, everyone in this arena came to see, and that, is J-B-L!!!

Crowd boo’s

John ‘Bradshaw‘ Layfield: You see Chris Jericho, these people, adore me. These people worship the ground I walk on, for the simple fact, that I was born and raised in the ever loving state of Texas!!!

The fans give JBL a mixed response.

Chris Jericho: But Johnny, lets not over look the fact, that you now have forgotten your roots, and currently, you hail from New York City!!

Crowd boo

John ‘Bradshaw‘ Layfield: Yes, that may be true Christopher. But ultimately, I was always going to become far too successful for this state. To make something of myself, I needed to leave this place, and up sticks to the most beautiful city in the entire world, and the greatest state in this country, NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK!!!

Crowd give JBL heat.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: But … look at it this way Texas, the prodigal son has returned!!!

Crowd start a JBL sucks chant.

Chris Jericho: I’m not sure about your hearing, but just in case you cant hear that, you have about 15,000 people, telling you, that you suck.

Crowd pops.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: Chris, if these people only have contempt for me, and cannot fail to look past my accomplishments, and be happy for a success story, like mine, then frankly, I wouldn’t wipe my ass on this stinking city!!!

Crowd give more heat

Chris Jericho: But, surely JBL, if you could be accepted by these Jericholics once again, you’d do it, wouldn’t you??

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: Well … I guess I would.

Chris Jericho: Very well … MONKEYS, bring the surprise down here.

We see a number of backstage workers enter the arena, carrying some object, which is covered with a black covering.

JBL talks with his Cabinet, pointing at the huge object, whilst Jericho instructs where to put it.

Chris Jericho: JBL, under this sheet, is your challenge. You can choose to prove that you are a true Texan, or JBL, you can decide to chicken out, and be … Justa Big Loser.

Crowd Pops, whilst JBL looks angrily at Jericho.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: Jericho, I have never backed down from a challenge in all my life, and I’m sure as hell not gonna start now.

Chris Jericho: Very well. JBL, here, is your challenge…

Jericho takes the sheet off, and reveals a bucking bronco!!! The crowd laughs, as does Jericho, whilst JBL and the Cabinet sit back, expressionless.

Chris Jericho: JBL, you claim to be a real Texan. You claim that the prodigal son has come home. Well junior, prove yourself to be a cowboy, and take this challenge!!! Does Corpus Christi want JBL to ride the bronco!!!

Crowd Pops

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: You’re serious?? Jericho, you cannot expect a man of my stature, and world wide magnitude to demean myself, and cli-


Crowd Pops again, as JBL grows frustrated. He looks at Jericho, whilst taking his jacket off, handing it to Danny Basham. He loosens his tie, and unbuttons his short

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: Okay, I’ll prove just how good of a cowboy I can be Jericho. How long do you want me to last.

Chris Jericho: JBL, if you can last longer than thirty seconds, you’ll have earned my respect … for riding a bronco.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: Piece of cake…

JBL tries to climb onto the bronco, but needs help from the Bashams to push him up onto the seating position. He gets himself ready, and grabs the reigns, then nods to Jericho.

Chris Jericho: (Smiling) Okay, start that engine!!!

The bronco starts to move slowly for a few seconds, with JBL smiling, shouting ‘This is easy’, but after around 8 seconds, the bronco starts to tilt quicker, and move faster, and JBL starts to struggle. Eventually the Bronco is too much, and JBL falls off, at 15 seconds exactly.

The crowd laugh at his feeble attempt, as does Jericho. JBL picks up his mic and starts talking again.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: Jericho, that was a fix, and you know it!!!

Chris Jericho: I’m afraid ass clown, that in that instance, you weren’t just bloody lucky!!!

JBL gets angry

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: Not that any of that matters Chris, because in ten days, at Nemesis, I wont be involved in a bunking bronco match, but instead, I’ll be putting you on the last stretcher you’ll ever be on!!!

Chris Jericho: I don’t think so junior. JBL, you tried to end my god damn career, wheeling me off the stage on a stretcher, and I’ll be damned if I’ll let you do it again!!! You wont be able to luck yourself into a win this time JBL, because you cant rely on the Cabinet to help you steal the win. You need to beat me unconscious, place me on a stretcher, and wheel me up the ramp, over the line to win, and if you ask me, I don’t think you can do it!!!

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: Well Jericho, I’ve faced the odds before, I’ve had the deck stacked against me, and every time, I’ve beaten the odds, and I’ve re-stacked the deck in my favour.

Crowd gives heat

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: Don’t believe me?? How about I explain. At The Great American Bash, I, the only true American in a triple threat match for the United States Title, faced two men who were long time friends in Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero. But in the end, I overcame both men, to become the single greatest U.S Champion in this companies history.
At Summer Slam, I was forced to take on Guerrero once again, despite proving just how much better I was the previous month, and once again, I beat him.
Now, I’m facing you Jericho. And Bret Hart knows, you have as much chance at beating me, as any sports team from Texas has at winning a major competition in any game.

Crowd gives heat

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: That is why he’s given you a shot in the dark, by eliminating pinfalls, submissions, count outs, or disqualifications, and making a match, where you strap your opponent on a gurney, and wheel him over a line. It’s blatant favouritism for you, to give you hope of a victory, but Jericho, you don’t have what it takes to dethrone me. You don’t have the mental stability, and you don’t even have confidence that you can defeat me.

Crowd starts a ‘Y2J’ chant

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: Because, you’re scared, of what I’ll do to you. I will mangle your face, and finish your wrestling career son. And so will that little side show band you run, Fuzzy, or Fizzy. I don’t know, nor do I care what your so called music group is called, but I can tell you, that on October 9th I will finish everything you’ve ever-


Crowd pops

Chris Jericho: For the record, it’s Fozzy, and JBL, as for being scared of you?? I don’t think so. The only reason I haven’t kicked your ass yet, is because Captain Jackass, I don’t get mad, I get even.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: Well son, I don’t get even, I stay ahead. And right now, I’m about to pull ahead.

The Bashams and Noble attack Jericho, with Y2J trying to fight back, but as JBL gets involved, it becomes too much for Jericho. The four men beat him down, until Paul London, along with a steel chair, hit’s the ring, hitting both of the Basham Brothers, whilst Noble jumps out of the ring, and Jericho clotheslines JBL over the top rope.

The Cabinet walk up the ramp until…

**Hitman** Bret Hart enters the arena to a great ovation. He stops The Cabinet at the top of the ramp, before speaking.

Bret Hart: Where are you guys going?? Danny, Doug. You go and get yourselves freshened up, but JBL, and Jamie, I feel like booking a little tag match. Now, I know you aren’t quite dressed for combat, but I don’t really care. Right now, it’s gonna be JBL and his Chief of Staff, Jamie Noble, taking on none other than Chris Jericho and Paul London!!!


1st Match:

Paul London & Chris Jericho vs. JBL & Jamie Noble
We join the match in progress following the break, with all four men brawling on the outside. The referee restores order, and gets it in the ring, with Noble and Jericho the first two legal men.
A number of tags are made early between both teams, before The Cabinet twosome, cheat to gain an advantage on Jericho. The two men begin to wear down Y2J, but not for too long, as Jericho connects with a standing enziguri on JBL. Both men make a tag, and London enters like a house on fire. He takes down Noble with a series of arm drags, before dropsaulting JBL over the top rope, with Jericho following after his adversary. Noble goes for a roll up with the tights, but London just kicks out.
Jamie Noble misses a clothesline, with London following up with a head scissors, taking Noble down. And before Noble knows anything about it, London scores with a 450 Splash, helping him to pick up the decisive three count!!!
Winner: Paul London & Chris Jericho
On the outside, Jericho attempts to nail JBL with the U.S Title belt, but JBL ducks, and quickly jumps the barricade, running through the crowd to keep his distance from Jericho. In the ring, Jericho celebrates with London, holding the U.S Title for what may be a sign of things to come.

We cut backstage, and see a number of Smackdown stars sitting in the cafeteria, chatting.

Hardcore Holly: If he was ever gonna show up guys, it’d be tonight. He doesn’t live too far away here in Texas.

Matt Hardy: The Rock definitely needs him, no doubt. But if you ask me, I thought if he was ever gonna come back, it would’ve been last week.

Chris Harris: Totally. Cowboy and I were talking about the exact same thing just the other day.

James Storm: I think Austin’s left it a week too long to come back. He wanted to retire, and nothing will bring him back.

Billy Kidman: Rock definitely needs a partner, but we all know he only wants to team with Austin.

Matt Hardy: Hell, I offered Rock my services as tag partner, but he either wants Austin, or to go it alone.

The group of guys stop talking, and look up, as Paul Heyman walks to the table.

Paul Heyman: Couldn’t help over hearing you fella’s chatting about The Rocks predicament. But let me inform you of something. The Rock got himself into this mess, and in my opinion, he wont be able to get himself out. Oh, and as for Austin, that coward will NEVER show up. He’s always been scared of Bill Goldberg, and lets not forget what Brock Lesnar did to him at Judgement Day. In fact, I guess that was the beginning of the end for The Rattlesnake.

Hardcore Holly: Paul, you’ve got once chance to shut up, and walk away. One chance.

Heyman smiles, than lets out a huge cackle, before walking away, still laughing, as we cut to a commercial.


In the A.F.A office, we see Rico sitting by a mirror applying make up, whilst Ron Simmons is lacing his boots, preparing for their match later.

Rico: You know Ronald, this is our big chance here tonight. I mean, if we are succ-

Ron Simmons: You damn right man. We beat Dean and Masters tonight, we’re likely to be getting ourselves a tag title shot. Think about it. Two weeks ago, we beat the Bashams, last week, the Bashams beat these two morons, so if we beat these two freaks tonight, we have to be Number One Contenders.

Rico stops for a moment, and begins to think, before turning to Simmons.

Rico: That’s actually a good point Ronald.

Simmons then stops, and turns to Rico.

Ron Simmons: Wasn’t that what you were talking about too??

Rico: Well actually Ronald. Now, I don’t mean to pressurise you any more than you are already, but I believe a number of fashion experts in the building tonight, and I’m hell bent on impressing these people. So, with that being said…

Rico walks to his wardrobe and pulls out a costume. It’s a lemon spandex suit, with a two holes for his ass.

Ron Simmons: You aint wearing that to the ring, are ya??

Rico: No, no, silly … you are!!!

Simmons turns away, and continues lacing his boots, before looking up again, staring at the suit, before looking at Rico again.

Ron Simmons:I don’t think so. Why don’t you wear it??

Rico: Because I’m going to be wearing this!!!

Rico pulls out an ugly green, strapless, all in one suit. Simmons face drops, then looks up again.

Ron Simmons: Oh man.

Rico: Say nothing Ronald. I know it’s beautiful. Now, put this on.

Rico leaves Simmons attire hung up, before walking off with his own. Simmons stares at the yellow mess he has to wear.

Ron Simmons: We’re gonna lose.

Back to ringside;

Michael Cole: Well Tazz, it’s been one heck of a night already. And as we heard backstage, rumours are running rampant whether Steve Austin will show tonight, in his home state of Texas.

Tazz: It’s been one weird night Cole. JBL on a bucking bronco, the rumours of whether Austin will show, and that funky ring attire the AFA have for later tonight.

Michael Cole: And right now, Chris Benoit, the Number One Contender will be in action, against the huge, Matt Morgan.

2nd Match:
Chris Benoit vs. Matt Morgan
Benoit gets the best out of Morgan, in an acceptable match. Morgan tries to dominate with his power, but Benoit’s aggression, and recent resurgence pulls him through for an emphatic win, after nailing the three Germans, Headbutt, and finally the Crossface for the submission.
Winners: Chris Benoit
Benoit has his arm raised in victory, as he heads into Nemesis in 10 days, for the chance to finally become the WWE Champion. He makes the motion around his waist that the title will be his, as we cut away…

Backstage, we see Eddie Guerrero talking to a few backstage officials, before walking into the locker room. He walks in, and sees a package sitting by his locker. Latino Heat, walks to the mysterious box, and opens it up. He pulls out the object inside it, and we see it is a clock. There is a note attacked to it, which Eddie reads, before throwing the note to the floor, and smashes the clock against the wall.

He storms out of the room, as the camera focuses in on the letter…
“Dear Eddie,
Watch twenty minutes pass by on this clock, and realise, in that time, you wont be able to score any decisive victory over me. Watch twenty hours pass by on this clock too, and realise that even if you had all the time in the world, you could never, and will never, defeat me.
Signed: Triple H”


3rd Match:
Eddie Guerrero vs. Lance Storm w/ William Regal
Guerrero doesn’t seem in the mood for messing around tonight, putting a beating on Storm right from the outset, and as Regal tries to interfere, Eddie throws him into the ring too. Guerrero knocks both men down. He slides to the outside, and picks up a steel chair, sliding back into the ring, and attacks Regal and Storm without hesitation, obviously causing a disqualification.
Winner: Lance Storm - DQ
Guerrero continues the assault, busting Lance Storm open, and knocking Regal to the outside. Eddie begins to pound at the open wound on the head of the defenceless Lance Storm, with his Latino Heat going into over drive tonight. The fans aren’t sure how to react, as Eddie goes up top, to hit a Frog Splash, but then…

**Time To Play The Game** The music of Triple H plays, but with no sign of The Game anywhere. The music dies down, as Eddie jumps down from the top rope, and out of the ring, maniacally storming up the ramp, showing that HHH mind games are indeed affecting him.

Raw Rebound:
- Shawn Michaels beating Sting’s mystery opponent, Marty Jannetty.
- Cena and Orton defeating Cade, Jindrak and Reigns in a 2 on 3 match.
- Matches announced for the Raw Homecoming to the USA Network.
- Main Event, with Christian once again, managing to defeat The Undertaker, being the last face on Raw from Spike TV.

Backstage, we see Guerrero still looking for Triple H, as the show cuts to a commercial


**APA - You look so good Remix** The AFA enter the arena to a major roar of laughter from the crowd, as Rico looks like a woman, and Simmons struggles to walk in his awful attire.

Michael Cole: (Laughing) Is that really Ron Simmons??

Tazz: (Laughing too) He looks like he ready to star in a low budget porn movie … with Rico!!!

Ron Simmons: It’s not the most flattering gear I’ve ever seen, that’s for sure.

**Simon System** The System Success enter the arena, with both men looking at Rico and Simmons (who looks to be in extreme pain from the tight suit) in disgust.

4th Match:
The A.F.A vs. System Success
Short match, with Rico and Simmons struggling to wrestle in their ring attire. Dean and Masters control the majority of the match, with Simmons not able to keep up any offence, as every shot he throws, puts him in more pain.
Rico meanwhile, is continuously trying to adjust his strapless all in one, which proves as a distraction … for himself. Masters and Dean eventually pick up the almost easy win, with Dean kicking Simmons off the apron, whilst Masters clamps on the Masterlock on Rico, eventually getting the pass out victory.
Winners: System Success
Masters and Dean celebrate up the ramp, as they get themselves in prime position for a tag title shot, whilst Simmons looks frustrated with Rico, but cant help to feel sorry for his fallen partner.

Michael Cole: Chris Masters and Simon Dean are definitely for real Tazz. That’s a huge win for them tonight.

Tazz: But this throws a real spanner in the works when you try and think who will be next in line to face AMW for the tag team titles. AFA have beaten The Basham Brothers, The Basham Brothers have beaten The System Success, and now, The System Success have bean the A.F.A.

Michael Cole: Three teams Tazz, all with a legitimate argument for a tag team title shot. I’ll be curious to see what Bret Hart does about that scenario.

Backstage, in the locker room, Brock Lesnar and Goldberg are talking…

Brock Lesnar: Bill, that was Paul on the phone. He’s just came from Bret’s office.

Goldberg: And what did he say?

Brock Lesnar: If Austin doesn’t show tonight, Rock has to either find a new partner by next Thursday, or he faces us two on one at Nemesis.

Goldberg: Perfect. I just hope no one is stupid enough to team with The Rock after Austin chickens out once again tonight.

Brock Lesnar: Who cares. They step in the ring with us, the most dominating pair in the history of this company, hell in this business, they’ll be writing their own death certificate.

Goldberg: I just hope they realise that.

Brock Lesnar: So later big man, we’ll hit that ring, and if Austin no shows, he’ll have missed his chance.

Goldberg: Sounds good Brock, sounds real good.

Lesnar and Goldberg smile in each others direction, as the camera fades away.


Michael Cole: Welcome back to Smackdown, and just before the commercial, we learned that if Steve Austin does not show tonight, The Rock will have to head into Nemesis, with a different partner, or all alone.

Tazz: And that just makes things worse for The Rock. Ever since he came back, he’s been absolutely dominated by those two behemoths, Goldberg and Lesnar.

Michael Cole: Of course, Nemesis is just ten days away, and right now, we’d like to thank Adema for use of the song, Planets, off their new album, also named Planets.

Tazz: Big ups to Adema, that’s a kick ass song.

Michael Cole: And on the show, Triple H meets Eddie Guerrero, with a twenty minute time limit!!

Tazz: Guerrero is desperate to defeat The Game, but I heavily doubt he can do it within twenty minutes. Just my opinion Cole.

Michael Cole: Raw’s World Heavyweight Championship will be decided, in a six pack elimination match, featuring Sting, The Undertaker, John Cena, Christian, Randy Orton, and of course, the champion, Shawn Michaels.

Tazz: So many issues inter twined in there Cole, and most of them revolve around HBK. It’ll be a heck of a showdown, and whomever comes out of it with the belt, will have to earn it. No cheap ways of winning, that’s for sure.

Michael Cole: As previously mentioned, The Rock, and possibly Steve Austin, or a different partner, or even, just The Rock, will face Bill Goldberg and Brock Lesnar.

Tazz: No team has ever looked as dominating as Goldberg and Lesnar have in the last few weeks. Those two guys hate each other, but right now, they are well and truly on the same page.

Michael Cole: Mick Foley, or should I say, Cactus Jack, faces Ric Flair, in what promises to be the bloodiest brawl, and the most personal issue to reach the squared circle in many years, as they face for the very first time, in a Streetfight.

Tazz: I watched Raw this past Monday Cole, and let me tell you, I got a chill all the way down my spine watching Mick Foley slowly metamorphous into the crazy, cold hearted Cactus Jack. If I was Ric Flair, I’d be running for the hills right now.

Michael Cole: A Stretcher Match will determine the United States Championship, as JBL takes on Chris Jericho, and how appropriate, is the Stretcher ruling?

Tazz: Damn straight Cole. It’s not just about the title, this issue, is damn sure personal too.

Michael Cole: Well, from one personal issue to another, the Intercontinental Title will be on the line in ten days, in a match you know only too well, ECW Rules. RVD, along with Bill Alfonso challenges Rey Mysterio.

Tazz: Damn straight Cole. ECW Rules, means there is no rules!!! Bill Alfonso has gotten the old RVD back, that’s for sure, but will he do enough to crack the unbreakable Intercontinental Champion, Rey Mysterio??

Michael Cole: And then, it’s the Smackdown main event. Benoit and Angle, for the most prestigious title in the land, and that, is the WWE Championship!!!

Tazz: Some of my favourite matches to have witnessed have been between these two men, and no doubt, they’ll give us one more classic encounter in ten days.

Michael Cole: And speaking of Raw, this coming Monday, it’s Raws big homecoming to the USA Network, with Smackdown also being showcased!!

Tazz: And we’re expecting Bret Hart to announce that showcase match before this night is out.

Backstage, Bret Hart and Chris Benoit are chatting outside Brets office…

Bret Hart: Chris, you are hitting peak form right now, at the right time. Angle better watch out, cause you’re definitely capable of doing it right now.

Chris Benoit: Bret, I’ve never felt any better. I honestly think this will be my ti-

Kurt Angle enters the picture, and Benoit turns his focus to Angle.

Kurt Angle: Isn’t this cosy?? What, you two plotting some way of cheating me out of the belt at Nemesis??

Bret Hart: Of course not, Kurt. Don’t be a fool.

Chris Benoit: Listen to him Kurt. Take his advice.

Kurt Angle: You know Benoit, I’ll take Brets advice, once he starts to take mine. Bret, I know you got that message a few weeks ago, and I’m sure it’s been playing on your mind. So, why don’t you do something about it??

Bret Hart: I don’t get this Kurt. Are you challenging me to have a match with you??

Kurt Angle: No, not at all, even though if you ask me, that’s what the fans all want to see. It’s the dream match, that according to you, cant happen. But, really, the truth, is that you are just too damn lazy to even think about it.

Bret Hart: That’s totally inaccurate Kurt. I don’t think about it, because it cant happen.

Angle lets out a fake laugh, and shakes his head, before Benoit steps in Angles face.

Chris Benoit: Kurt, I don’t know if you realise, but in ten days, you’re facing me for the WWE Championship. My advice to you, would be to start concentrating on what should matter to you, and that should be the WWE Title.

Angle stands face to face with Benoit, not replying to his words, instead deciding to walk off, as Benoit and Hart start to shake their heads in disgust.

Backstage, the AFA are sitting in the trainers room, with some backstage officials trying to cut Simmons attire in order to get him out of it.

Ron Simmons: I’ve never been more embarrassed in all my life man. We had a chance to go out there tonight, and get a shot at the tag titles. That’s probably out the window now.

Rico starts to cry.

Ron Simmons: What the hell are you crying for??

Rico: (Sobbing) I let you down Ronald. I let all our fans down.

Ron Simmons: Listen man, it-

Rico: (Sobbing) That, and the fact that all the fashion experts weren’t interested in our unique range.

Simmons shakes his head in disgust.

Ron Simmons: Listen man, let me be straight with you. You’re a freak. But that, that helps us in the long run, because you have something that no other guy in the locker room has, and it helps us. Dammit Rico, we’re good enough to be the tag team champions.

Rico: (Stops sobbing) Really??

Ron Simmons: Damn straight!!

Rico: Oh my Ronald … could you imagine how good gold would look around my waist??

Ron Simmons: Um…

Rico: Of course you do. Now, lets go!!!

Rico walks out of the room, as Simmons tries to follow, but decides not to, as his ring attire is still too tight for him.


We return, and see Torrie Wilson shooting T-Shirts into the crowd, when suddenly …

**Who Betta than Kanyon** Kanyon enters the arena to little reaction. He walks to the ring, and is followed by a huge man, who is rather ugly to say the least.

He enters the ring, and asks for a mic, which he is given.

Kanyon: Whoooooo betta than Kanyon!!!
Crowd respond with ‘we are’

Kanyon: You’re funny people. But I know someone who isn’t better than Kanyon, and that, is you Torrie!!

Crowd boo

Kanyon: But never mind, because I’m giving you the chance of joining Kanyons Klub. You, me and my new assistant, Mr. Snistky!!!

Camera focuses in on Snitsky, who growls into the camera.

Torrie Wilson: Umm, thanks Kanyon, but no thanks.

Kanyon looks dejected, and nods.

Kanyon: Okay. Well thanks anyway. C’mon Gene, lets go.

Kanyon slides out of the ring, looking gloomy, and doesn’t realise, that Snistky attacks Torrie!!! He kicks her over with a devastating big boot, before picking her up, and delivering a devastating Piledriver!!!!

Kanyon eventually spots it, and runs back to the ring. He pushes Snitsky, looking genuinely concerned for Torrie, as she doesn’t move. Snitsky looks angry, and grabs Kanyon by the shirt, ramming him into the ring post. Kanyon staggers out, into a clothesline from the big man. Snitsky picks Kanyon up, and delivers a Pumphandle Slam to Kanyon, before growling once again into the camera, as he leaves the ring.

EMT’s rush past him, attending to Torrie in the ring, as we cut to a commercial once again.


We return, with Torrie being placed into an ambulance with a neck brace, as a number of stars from the locker room stand around the vehicle, trying to see if she’s ok.

Michael Cole: That’s sickening Tazz. This Snitsky just lost it, big time.

Tazz: And he even attacked Kanyon, who he was supposed to be aligned with.

Michael Cole: Hopefully we get an update on her condition shortly.

5th Match:
Triple H vs. Tajiri
The Game allows Tajiri to get some offence in, but for the majority, he dominates proceedings. The Martial arts kicks from Tajiri cause Triple H some problems, but in the end, Triple H’s Pedigree is enough to get the job done.
Winner: Triple H
The Game has the win, but Eddie Guerrero soon runs down the ramp, looking furious at Triple H, who see’s Eddie coming, and decides to quickly slide out of the ring, much to Eddie’s displeasure.
HHH backs up the ramp, pointing to his head, as if to tell Guerrero his mind games are working, which it actually appears to be, with Eddie at boiling point.

Michael Cole: Triple H continues to play mind games with Latino Heat, and right now, it seems to be all going to plan for The game.

Tazz: First he gives Guerrero just twenty minutes to beat him at Nemesis, then he busts Guerrero’s low rider last week, before sending him a clock tonight, with a very patronizing message attached to it. I wouldn’t be surprised if Guerrero ends up getting disqualified in ten days.

On the titan tron, Bret hart appears…

Bret Hart: As I’m sure everyone is aware, this coming Monday marks the return of Raw to it’s natural home. And on the show, it has been decided that Smackdown will be showcased. And right now, I’d like to take this moment to announce that match. You see, Brock Lesnar and Goldberg will be in action, teaming together for the first time ever, in a tune up for Nemesis in ten days, against the team of Eddie Guerrero … and Triple H!!!

Crowd makes some noise in anticipation.

Bret Hart: But, Triple H and Eddie Guerrero wont be allowed to physically come into contact with each other, because if they do?? Firstly, their match will be scrapped at Nemesis, and both men will be forced to sit on the sidelines, and watch from home, until March 27th 2006 … the day after our biggest event of the year, Wrestle Mania.

Bret’s image fades from the screen, with Guerrero still in the ring, ready to explode.

Michael Cole: It looks to me Tazz, that Smackdown will be stealing the show this coming Monday night, at Raw Homecoming!!

Tazz: Damn straight. Goldberg and Lesnar team up to face Guerrero and The Game. No physical contact between Latino Heat and Triple H either, or they are gone until after Wrestle Mania.


We return, and immediately…

**Here Comes The Pain** Goldberg and Lesnar enter the arena, to easily the most heat from tonight’s show. They walk to the ring, and both looking extremely happy with themselves.

Michael Cole: It is the moment of truth for The Rock and Austin. Will Stone Cold rethink his retirement?? Is he even here??

Tazz: I personally hope so Cole. The Rock & Austin against Goldberg and Lesnar is a dream tag match waiting to happen.

Lesnar is handed a mic, and begins to speak.

Brock Lesnar: Rock, this is it. Austin, it’s now or never. If you’re here, show your face, if you’re sitting at home watching this, then you’re smart. Either way, last chance.

Lesnar hands the mic to Goldberg.

Goldberg: Time for talk is over Rock. If Austin is here, he better show his face, right now, or you’re all alone in ten days.

**IF YAAAA SMELLLLL … WHAT THE ROCK, IS COOKIN!!** The People’s Champion enters the arena, to easily the biggest pop of the night. He stands at the top of the ramp, and we see him with a black eye, following last weeks attack.

The Rock: Bill Goldberg, Brock Lesnar. You two think you have it all worked out, you think that The Rock is just gonna lay down, now that Austin isn’t here, well unfortunately for you, you’re about to find out, no one, AND THE ROCK MEANS NO ONE scares The Rock away into a corner. No. Instead, what The Rock is gonna do, is bring everything. He’s gonna bring all his sweat, and all his blood, and all his tears, into Freedom Hall, in ten days time, and whoop that ass, like only The Rock can!!!

Crowd Pops

The Rock: But right now, The Rock isn’t in Louisville, and this isn’t Nemesis, this, is The Rock’s show, Smack-down, and FINALLLYYYY … THE ROCK HAS COME BACK TO CORPUS CHRISTI!!!!

Crowd Pops

The Rock: And there is nothing more the People want to see, than The Rock lay the smack down on both of your candy asses!!!

Crowd Pops

The Rock: So, The Rock isn’t gonna just talk the talk here tonight, The Rock is gonna back the talk up, and he’s gonna walk to that very ring, and Jussst Bring it!!!

Rock drops the mic, and heads for the ring. He slides in, but right away, he is jumped by Goldberg and Lesnar. The two men stomp the life out of The Great One for the 4th week in a row, as the fans begin an almighty ‘Austin’ chant.

Goldberg and Lesnar take turns pounding The Rock in the corner, with The Rock getting absolutely battered. Lesnar whips Rock out of the corner, and Goldberg catches The Rock with a spear!!! Goldberg signals to Lesnar to hit the F5, with Brock nodding. He tries to pull Rock up, when suddenly…

**GLASS SHATTERS** The arena goes apes hit as Stone Cold’s music hits to a thunderous pop, easily beating The Rock’s seemingly big pop.

Goldberg and Lesnar stare up the ramp, in shock, and we then see The Rattlesnake enter the arena, in his ever present Pick Up Truck!!!

Lesnar and Goldberg look to each other is fear, as the truck drives to the ring, and we see Stone Cold step out, to another huge reaction. The fans are absolutely rabid, as Austin slams the door of his vehicle, and looks into the ring, as Goldberg and Lesnar challenge him to get in.

Austin looks to the fans, and starts to rub his beard, before backing up. Lesnar and Bill start to laugh, as they expect Austin is having second thoughts, but instead, we see Austin reach into the back of the pick up, and he pulls out a baseball bat!!!!

Austin smiles, as the fans cheers don’t let up. He starts to walk to the ring, with Goldberg and Lesnar now backing up, away from him. He walks up the steps, as the heels forget about The Rock, who nips up, turns Goldberg around, and takes him by surprise, nailing a Rock Bottom.

Lesnar knocks Rock back down, but that allows Austin to help Rock, and the dream team of Stone Cold and The Rock begin to tee off on Brock Lesnar. They whip him off the ropes, hitting a double hip toss, before Austin scores with the Stunner, sending Lesnar out of the ring.

Meanwhile, Goldberg manages to get to his feet, but Austin and Rock team up again, and hit a double clothesline, knocking Goldberg over the top rope to the floor!!! Goldberg and Brock stagger up the ramp, as Austin picks up a mic…

Steve Austin: Goldberg, Lesnar?? You wanna hear what Stone Cold’s is saying?? It’s saying, that its time for Stone Cold to come out of retirement!!!

Crowd goes insane

Steve Austin: So you two little rat bastards, better bring your carcasses all the way to Nemesis, because it’s about time that good ol’ Stone Cold starting whipping some ass again, and he’s starting with you two sum bitches!!! And that’s the bottom line… cause Stone Cold…

The Rock: And The Rock…

Steve Austin: SAID SO!!!

**Glass Shatters** Austin and Rock celebrate in the ring, shaking hands, as their opponents for Nemesis stand at the top of the ramp, staring at each other, showing fear.

Austin and Rock share a few beers, to the delight of the fans, as the show goes off the air.

RAW Homecoming; October 3rd 2005: Cleveland, Ohio;


We open with a video, with classic clips from Raw in the past from the USA Network

All new Opening Video, with new theme, Remedy by Seether.
HUGE pyro, and we see Raw has a brand new set, which looks extremely impressive.

Jim Ross:
Raw, has finally come home, to the USA Network!!! The Gund Arena, has been sold out for weeks Coach, in anticipation, for the biggest Raw in WWE history!!!

The Coach: J.R, I’ve never felt an atmosphere like this, in my short career, and I’m sure you’d be hard pressed to find a more raucous set of fans, in attendance, in your career either.

Jim Ross: Indeed, this arena is set to explode, and we haven’t even got started yet. Get ready fans across the world, because for the next three hours, Raw is about to take the USA Network, by STORM!!!

The Coach: What a line up we have too J.R.

Jim Ross: By Gawd, Coach, it’s the biggest line up in Raw history. Rey Mysterio, six days from an ECW Rules match at Nemesis, takes on Rhyno, in ECW Rules, as a tune up for this Sunday, Shaniqua defends her Womens Championship…

The Coach: Not forgetting the debut, of Carlito’s Cabana, with Carlitos first guest being none other, than the immortal HULK HOGAN!!!

Jim Ross: Indeed, and so much more, including Randy Orton vs. Luther Reigns in a Steel Cage Match, and just announced over the weekend, John Cena takes on Christian in a first blood match, an-

The Coach: Christian deserves the night off if you ask me J.R. He’s six days away from fulfilling his destiny, and just last week, he was in a war with The Deadman.

Jim Ross: Whether or not you make a valid point Coach, the fact remains, it’ll be first blood between Cena and Christian tonight, and of course, the main event. The legend, Sting, takes on the World Champion, Shawn Michaels for the first time EVER!!!

The Coach: It’s a main event, fitting of the biggest Raw ever!!

**Just Close Your Eyes** Christian enters the arena, to a mixed reaction, with the fans absolutely rocking this evening. Captain Charisma walks to the ring, looking worse for wear after his match last week, but is still smiling proudly, having beaten Undertaker twice.

He enters the ring, and takes a mic from Lillian Garcia. He stands for a few moments, soaking up the mixture of cheers and boo’s, before speaking…

Christian: Isn’t this ironic?? I mean, last week, the last face from the WWE that you people saw on Blunt TV, was my beautiful features … one week later … the first you see on the USA Network, is my stunning looks.

Crowd start an ass hole chant

Christian: Don’t start with me people. I’m not out here right now to gage your reactions, okay?? In actual fact, I’m out here, to let all our new viewers, who haven’t watched Raw in five years, since we went on ‘vacation’ know that in the past five years, things have changed.

Crowd gives heat.

Christian: Please, have some respect Cleveland. If not for yourselves, have some for our viewers at home.

Crowd gives more heat. Christian winks into the camera, at the fans watching at home.

Christian: Now, as I was saying, in the past five years, things have changed somewhat. Lets call it a changing of the guard, shall we??
Since Raw last aired here, you viewers will be used to the likes of … The Rock.

Crowd pops

Christian: Triple H.

Crowd boo

Christian: And that other guy, Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Crowd erupt, whilst Christian fakes a yawn at the camera.

Christian: Nowadays, you’ll find those guys in a retirement home, that we refer to as Thursday Night Smackdown.

Some laughs from the fans.

Christian: Raw has moved on, and nowadays, this show is led by ME, Captain Charisma, and … a bunch of other guys, but they’re not important right now.

Crowd starts another ass hole chant.

Christian: But, just in case you people need more information on yours truly, I am the only man, to defeat The Undertaker two straight times by pinfall … not just this year, but EVER!!!

Crowd gives Christian heat, until…

**MY TIME IS NOW** John Cena enters the arena to a thunderous ovation from the fervent audience. Cena plays to the fans, as he makes his way to the ring, climbing up the steps, and entering the ring, throwing his hands up, to another almighty pop. Cena is handed a mic, with Christian looking less than impressed.

John Cena: So, Christian, is the face of Raw, huh?? Folks, please don’t adjust your set, the only reason he says he’s the main attraction here, is cause he CAAAAANT SEEEE MEEE!!!

Crowd pops

Christian: Whoa, that’s not accurate at all Corey Haim. I can see you perfectly, but there is something about you that I cant see.

John Cena: Oh yeah?? What’s that then??

Christian: I cant see the World Title around your waist!!!

Crowd ‘Ooooos’

John Cena: Christian, buddy. Don’t worry, you’ll never see the World Title.

Crowd Pops

Christian: Well. Cena, lets face facts. Very few people expected me to defeat The Undertaker at Summer Slam. Even less predicted me to beat him fair and square, but I did.

Crowd gives a mixed reaction.

Christian: And just last week, fewer thought I could do it again, if any. But, Cena, I bled, from every pore on my body, but I still beat The Undertaker, and I did it ALONE!!!

Crowd gives another mixed reaction.

Christian: So now, maybe you, Michaels, Sting, Orton and Taker will be taking me seriously this Sunday, when I hand out Unprettiers for free, on route to becoming the NEW World Heavyweight Champion!!!

Crowd leans towards more heat than cheers

Christian: So next time you question me as the face of Raw, think again. I can do anything that Undertaker can, I can do anything Orton can, I can do anything Michaels can do, as well as Sting, and especially, YOU!!!

Christian steps up into Cena’s face, with Cena smiling.

John Cena: If you can do everything I can Chief Charm, then why don’t you rap, for all these fans!!!

Crowd Pops, whilst Christian steps back. He thinks for a moment before nodding.

Christian: You’re on Cena. And I’ll show you just how easy it is. Hear me now…
(Christian starts bobbing his head, trying to think of what to say)

Christian: Alright, here we go … at Summer Slam The Undertaker fell to the Unprettier…
… And right now John Cena, my lines a wittier …
… Peeps don’t worry, please don’t fret …
… Because Captain Charisma aint done yet …
… Sting is a legend, that’s for sure …
… But these days he’s nothing but an insomnia cure …
… HBK might have the World Title Belt …
… But once I take it from him, his hearts gonna melt …
… Randy Orton calls himself the Legend Killer …
… At Nemesis he meets the Lady Thriller …
… You Cena, you’re just white trash …
… With one Unprettier, I’ll take you out in a flash …
… And none of you have Christian’s class …
… This Sunday I’m gonna kick some -

**BREAK IT DOWN** Shawn Michaels enters the arena, already dressed for action tonight, looking extremely angry. He walks to the ring with a purpose, climbing in through the ropes, and taking a mic.

Shawn Michaels: Stop this charade already Christian. You’re as much a rapper, as John Cena is.

Crowd gives heat, whilst Cena shows some anger in his face.

Shawn Michaels: Last week, you got in the Heart Break Kid’s grill, and you said you were coming for MY title, and now tonight, you’re rapping about me, and you’re telling these imbeciles that you are the face of Raw?? Christian, you’re not the face, but more like the ass.

Crowd gives a mixed response

Shawn Michaels: As for you John Cena?? You had your fun in the sun, but with one kick, I took away all your dreams, and this title. And on Sunday, it’ll be take two, when Sweet Chin Music stops your show, Christian’s rapping, Orton’s legend killing, and The Undertaker’s heartbeat.

Crowd gives heat

Shawn Michaels: And as for you Sting. Tonight, I’m kicking your teeth down your throat, six days before I do it again at Nemesis.

John Cena: Hold it up, one minute Michaels. Back it up a step. You even dare come to this ring, and get in my face?? Shawn, we haven’t crossed paths since Summer Slam, and I’m still hungry for revenge.

Crowd pops

John Cena: So instead of handing out empty promises, why don’t you start thinking about the possibility of John Cena kicking your ass all over Ohio right now.

**Burn in my Light** Randy Orton’s music hits in the arena to a memorable pop from the fans. The Legend Killer poses at the top of the ramp, dressed in his ring gear also, before walking down the ramp, and walks around ringside, picking up a mic. Orton jumps onto the apron, and steps into the ring.

Randy Orton: I’m sick of listening to all this crap out here. Christian claims to be the face of Raw?? Not in this lifetime. Oh, and Christian, as for you being a lady thriller?? After that WrestleMania video, I’d say you’re more of a dinosaur thriller!!

Crowd Pops

Randy Orton: John Cena claims to be the face of Raw, and so does Shawn Michaels. Well I’m out here to tell each of you, that all of you can be the face of Raw, but Randy Orton is the face of the WWE!!

Crowd pops, whilst HBK becomes agitated.

Shawn Michaels: I don’t think so boy. This right here (points to title) makes me the face of Raw, and the face of this company. Not you, not Christian, not Cena, not anyone, but the Shoooowstopper!!

Randy Orton: Well Shawn, prepare to be disappointed. This Sunday, you’re looking at the next Wor-

Christian: World Heavyweight Champion, Chris-

John Cena: JOHN CENA!!!

Crowd pops

John Cena: And right now, I’ve been standing beside Shawn Michaels for too long not to lay a beating on his ass, so Michaels, I’m sick of the talking, because the REAL Champ is Here … and this Sunday, I’m taking my belt back too.

Cena drops his mic, and tackles Michaels down, pounding the Champion, whilst Christian takes a cheap shot at Orton. DX run to the ring, to save HBK. Orton and Cena team up, to take on DX and Christian, low bridging Christian out of the ring, before throwing Cade and Jindrak out after him. Michaels leaves the ring, whilst Cena and Orton beat on Reigns, before Orton clotheslines him out.

DX and Christian start to walk up the ramp, looking back at Cena and Orton, until…

**No Chance** The Boss, Vince McMahon enters the arena, with a mic in hand.

Mr. McMahon: Dammit, I’m in charge tonight, and I’ll be damned if there isn’t gonna be some action right from the get go. LOWER THAT CAGE!!! Luther Reigns, you look ready for action. GET YOUR ASS TO THE RING. That’s right, Randy Orton vs. Luther Reigns … RIGHT NOW!!!

Jim Ross: Oh my!!! Reigns vs. Orton, Steel cage, when we come back!!!


1st Match: Steel Cage Match:
Randy Orton vs. Luther Reigns
Match is joined in progress, with Orton having dominated the early going, despite his bigger opponent. Orton scores a few near falls, before Reigns reverses a whip, and sends Orton, hard, into the steel!!!
Reigns follows up with a short clothesline, and this begins his spell of dominance in the match. Luther wears down Orton, before Orton fires up, fighting back into the match. The comeback is short lived, as Luther blocks an RKO, then smashes Ortons skull into the steel, four consecutive times, busting the Legend Killer open.
Orton is a bloody mess, with Reigns beginning to dominate the match. He uses his massive power advantage to full effect, coming close to victory with a Pumphandle Slam. Luther tries to exit the cage for the win, but Orton stops him at the last second, forcing Reigns to come back in.
The Insurance Policy continues his power game, pounding Orton in the corner, but as he goes for a Military Press, He stumbles, and Orton crashes into the referee!!! The Insurance Policy quickly regains his footing, and comes after Orton, but Randy ducks a boot, and out of nowhere, CONNECTS WITH AN RKO!!!
Orton has the leg hooked, as the referee on the outside, opens the cage door, to get in and make a count, eventually doing so … 1...2...MARK JINDRAK BREAKS THE COUNT!!! Orton cant believe it!!! Cade enters the ring too, and DX begin to double team Orton, as Luther recovers, but Roadkill and Danny Doring sprint down the aisle, and even things up for Orton. Cade and Jindrak escape, climbing over the cage, whilst Reigns goes for the Reigns of Terror on Orton, but Orton blocks it, fights free, ducks a clothesline, and SCORES WITH A SECOND RKO!!! Orton hooks the leg, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Randy Orton
Orton is victorious after taking a tremendous beating at the hands of Luther Reigns in this contest. The Legend Killer has been deeply lacerated, and struggles to walk out of the ring, as the cage rises up again. Orton raises his arm as he walks up the ramp, to a big reaction from the fans.


Raw on USA Moment - Mick Foley visits Mr. McMahon in the hospital, introducing the world to Mr. Socko for the first time ever.

Jim Ross: Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to Raw, finally back on the USA Network, and what a homecoming it’s shaping up to be tonight. As you saw, just a few seconds ago on a classic clip, Mick Foley, as Mankind, having some fun with Mr. Socko, but folks, don’t expect that Mick Foley this Sunday at Nemesis. Expect a total opposite of that in fact. Ric Flair has forced a re-incarnation of the man known simply, as Cactus Jack. And in the past few days, Mick Foley has taped this special message for Ric Flair this Sunday…

**Cut to video**

The video opens in a dimly lit room, likely to be a motel. In the corner, we see the figure of Mick Foley, sat in a chair…

Mick Foley: Greetings from Louisville, Kentucky, exactly one week from the World Wrestling Entertainment Pay Per View, named Nemesis, which will emanate from just down the road at Freedom Hall.
Now, some of you may be asking, Mick Foley, what are you doing in Kentucky, a full week before Nemesis?? Well, I’ll answer that question. On September 12th, Ric Flair and Batista bludgeoned Mick Foley in front of a world wide audience, and sent him to a hospital for a little over a week. In that time, Mick Foley spat up blood, couldn’t bear to look his children, nor could they recognize their own father. Mick Foley didn’t have the strength to hug his own wife, and brought a tear to the eye of his friends and other family members when they saw first hand, the state of his mangled body.

So, typically, over that week, depression kicked in, and once the Chairman of the WWE board visited Mick Foley, there was no other option as to what he had to do, and that, was to make sure he was to face Ric Flair. Only by this time, Mick Foleys state of depression had risen to a new level. Mick Foley was no longer …… in control. In actual fact, the man running the ship, was now someone he didn’t want to be, but it was something he couldn’t stop.
Cactus Jack was in control of Mick Foley, and not vice versa, and right now, this message comes to you from the mouth of Cactus Jack, and not the loveable Mick Foley.
Why am I here?? Well, despite Cactus Jack not having a conscience, I wont subject Mick Foley’s children, and his wife to the world of Cactus Jack. They couldn’t handle what Cactus Jack brings to the table … no one can. So Ric Flair, you listen to this right now, because this affects you greatly. You see, you have taken not just the one week that Mick Foley lost with his family, whilst in hospital … you have taken the following three with it, leading to October 9th. That’s a full month Ric Flair. In a month, Mick Foleys children may grow a couple inches. The hair on their head will grow, they’ll learn new things at school, and they’ll do all this without their father by their side!!!

Ric Flair, that eats Mick Foley alive. That eats any father alive. Mick Foley doesn’t want to wrestle any more. He doesn’t want to fight. Mick Foley wants a simple life, but for the time being, you’ve taken it away. You’ve taken away the walks in the park with his family. You’ve taken away the nights by the fire telling stories, and you’ve left a family without a father.
You may sit there and say, ‘But it’s only a month, you’ll get over it’. But that’s not my point. My point is that, although, yes, Mick Foley will return to his family, and yes, he will go for those walks in the park, but what you fail to realise, is that he’ll never get September 2005 back, ever again.
The Foley family wont be watching Raw on Monday Night, and they wont be watching Nemesis on Pay Per View this Sunday, because they know what to expect from Cactus Jack, and although it’s mentally Cactus Jack, on the outside, the Foley family see Mick Foley. And they don’t want to see the disturbing footage, which you will all see. It disturbs Mick Foley, it will disturb the audience in the arena and at home, when blood sprays into the crowd, and IT WONT BE MINE!!!

Which leads us to this Sunday. Flair, you may think you’re facing Mick Foley, dressed as Cactus Jack, but make no mistake. For the time being, Mick Foley isn’t here anymore. There is no remorse in these eyes, and this brain is running on overload, with images of your bloody corpse, leaving Louisville on Sunday, in a little brown box. And I can say that as if I’m talking about the weather, because I don’t care what happens to you at Nemesis. Mick Foley couldn’t talk about ending your life, in the same way he’d talk about the weather. Mick Foley would be disturbed by this, as I’m sure everyone sitting at home watching this is too, but like I said, Cactus Jack doesn’t care. In fact, let me show you something.

(Foley picks up the camera, and points in in direction of the wall, where a number of sheets, with writing scribbled on is shown. He turns the camera back, before speaking again)

On that wall, is just some of the idea’s I have for Nemesis on October 9th. They don’t include eating a healthy breakfast. They don’t include signing autographs, but instead, it includes what I plan to do to the Nature Boy. That’s you Flair. And your future, is written on this wall in Louisville.

Now Ric Flair, I hope you realise what you have gotten yourself into, because now there is no turning back … there is no form of time travel, and apologies wont fly with me. You made your fate, now you’re going to face your fear.
I hope you realise that you are looking at a man with absolutely no control, no feelings, no principles, no barriers.
I hope you realise that your dealing with the King of the Deathmatch, a man that lost his ear, a man than near blew himself up on a C4 explosive, a man who doesn’t even care about winning or losing, but instead, cares about creating a much destruction, and brutality as the human body can endure, and then some!!!

Ric Flair, I’m taking you to hell on earth, whether you like it or not, whether you’re kicking and screaming, I will take you there Ric, and I will introduce you to my world. There wont be anything, and there wont be anyone who can stop me, I promise you that. I will dissect your body, and I will mutilate your face. I’ve done it to other men, and I’ll do it again … with pleasure. You call yourself the Dirtiest Player in the Game, but be ready to go head to head, with the Most Vicious Bastard in the World!!!
Your issue started with Mick Foley. But Ric Flair, your career, and possibly … your life, will end with Cactus Jack. (Cactus starts to laugh) BANG BANG!!!

Back to ringside:

Jim Ross: Disturbing footage, to say the least. This Sunday, Mick Foley, sorry, Cactus Jack, will take on Ric Flair, in a Streetfight. Lock the kids away folks, because I can guarantee you there will be bloodshed, and so much more. It will not be pretty.

The Coach: I’m scared for Flair, J.R. He may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Jim Ross: I would think so Coach. Ric Flair is in deep, deep trouble in Louisville at Nemesis.

We cut to the ring, where a wrestler, likely to be a jobber is waiting for a match, as **Hello Ladies** hits, and Val Venis enters the arena.

Lillian Garcia: The following contest is scheduled for one fall, making his way to the ring, from Las Vegas, Nevada, weighing 245 pounds, Val Venis. And in the ring, his opponent, fr-

The wrestler snatches the microphone, and shoo’s Lillian out of the ring, before speaking.

Wrestler: And, his opponent, in the ring, hailing from Greeeen Bay, Wisssssconsin, weighing an astounding 242 pounds, Misssssssterrrr Kennnnnnnnnedddyyyyyyyy … … … Kennedy!!!

Kennedy throws the mic to the outside, as Venis enters the ring.

2nd Match:
Val Venis vs. Ken Kennedy
The fans get more into the match as it progresses, with Mr. Kennedy doing much more than a ‘jobber’ is usually seen doing. Venis gets in a short amount of offence, before heading up top for the Money Shot, but KK kicks the ropes, and Val straddles the top turnbuckle. Kennedy nips up, and climbs up the ropes, getting Val onto his shoulders, and coming off with an Inverted Samoan Drop!!!! The fans come alive for the awesome move, as Kennedy hooks the leg, 1...2...3!!!
Winners: Ken Kennedy
Kennedy is victorious, coming as a major shock to the fans. He jumps out of the ring, and stops Garcia as she begins to speak, snatching her mic, and speaking…

Ken Kennedy: The winner of the match, at an impressive, four minutes, nineteen seconds … MISSSSSSSSTERRRRRRRRR KENNNNNNEDDYYYYYY … … KENNEDYYYY!!!

Kennedy drops the mic, and walks up the ramp, to no music, with him not expected to actually win, although the fans seem impressed.


Raw on USA Moment - Stone Cold Steve Austin confronts Mike Tyson, leading to a brawl, being broken up by dozens of security.

Backstage, we see Carlito preparing himself for the Cabana, coming up later on.

Jim Ross: The party is just getting started folks, Raw’s Homecoming still has so much to offer. A First Blood Match, Michaels vs. Sting for the first time ever, and lets not forget, an appearance from the immortal Hulk Hogan!!!

The Coach: Indeed, all that to come J.R. A mix of the new, and the old, with Hogan being here. But right now, Smackdown looks to steal some of Raws spotlight, by somehow managing to squeeze itself in on the biggest Raw of all time.

Jim Ross: It’s gonna be Triple H & Eddie Guerrero, who meet this Sunday at Nemesis, taking on Brock Lesnar & Goldberg, who team this Sunday, to face The Rock & Steve Austin!!!

The Coach: Big time match this J.R, but if you ask me, the writing is on the wall for this one. Lesnar and Goldberg are on the same page, but Guerrero and The game aren’t even reading the same book!!

3rd Match: Smackdown Showcase:
Triple H & Eddie Guerrero vs. Brock Lesnar & Goldberg
Smackdown undoubtedly showcases four of it’s biggest stars, with Eddie and Triple H being forced to team together. Neither want to be in the same team, and both show that during the match, with some forceful tags.
Lesnar and Goldberg perform like a well oiled machine, both still seething over Steve Austins return to Smackdown last week, and take their frustration out on their opponents, who cant seem to get along. Lesnar and Goldberg make Eddie their main point of attack, singling him out from his partner, who doesn’t seem to be too bothered by it.
Eddie begins to fight back, and reaches out for a tag, but Triple H barely makes an effort to reach Eddie, and this leads to Goldberg and Lesnar being able to go on the attack again. Lesnar and Goldberg wear down Guerrero, with some illegal double teams, with HHH barely showing any emotion.
After a commercial, we return, and see once again, Guerrero manages a fight back, but as he crawls to his corner, Triple H purposely drops down from the apron, and begins walking up the ramp, leaving Eddie like a deer caught in the headlights. Guerrero is furious, and tries to get out of the ring to go after Triple H, but Goldberg drags Guerrero back in, and whips him into the direction of Lesnar, who gets Eddie up and delivers the devastating F5. Goldberg scoops Eddie up, like road kill, and takes the limp body up in the air, driving it down with the Jackhammer!!! Goldberg covers, 1...2...3!!!
Winners: Goldberg & Brock Lesnar
Lesnar and Goldberg are victorious, with Triple H leaving Guerrero for dead. They look into the camera, sending a message for Rock and Austin who they face this Sunday, before leaving the ring.

Jim Ross: Damn that Triple H!!! Damn him!!! I hope Eddie Guerrero puts him through twenty minutes of sheer hell this Sunday!!!

The Coach: But J.R, it doesn’t matter. Guerrero could easily beat up The Game for twenty minutes this Sunday, but he’ll never be able to put Triple H away!!!

Jim Ross: Oh, we’ll find out this Sunday, Coach!!

Backstage, Todd Grisham is standing by with Roadkill & Danny Doring;

Todd Grisham: Gentlemen, moments ago, I watched as you both left Mr. McMahon’s office, looking rather pleased. May I ask what was said??

Danny Doring: Todd, Mr. McMahon just made our day. In six days time, at Nemesis, Roadkill and I, finally get our hands on the scrawny necks of the DX Duo, and better still, we get it on our terms. Cade and Jindrak cant run, cant hide, cant get disqualified, cant get counted out.

Roadkill: Wanna know why Todd?? Because this Sunday, we’re challenging Cade and Jindrak for the tag titles, and Mr. McMahon had the perfect idea, for it to be a TABLES MATCH!!!

Danny Doring: Todd, you’re looking at the last ECW Tag Team Champions …

Roadkill: And the next, World Tag Team Champions!!!

Roadkill and Doring walk off, looking confident of their chances.

Jim Ross: OH MY!!! What an announcement, just six days away from Nemesis. Roadkill and Doring to challenge The DX Duo this Sunday, in a Tables Match!!!

The Coach: This is bad news for my boys. Cade and Jindrak deserve better than to be treated like this. They’ve been champions for four months dammit!!!

Jim Ross: In any event, folks, when we come back, it’s the debut, of Carlito’s Cabana!!! And I cannot wait to see his guest … the immortal Hulk Hogan!!!


Raw on USA Moment - Chris Jericho debuts, having a war of words with The Rock.

**Spit in the Face** Carlito enters the arena, with Stacey Kiebler, who looks as lovely as ever. CCC walks to the ring, chewing on his apple, looking genuinely excited about his guest this evening for the first ever Cabana.

Carlito is handed a mic, and begins to speak, whilst looking around, pleased with his set.

Carlito: Welcome … to Carlito’s Cabana!!!

Crowd gives CCC some heat.

Carlito: And welcome to the dawning of a new era on Raw.

Crowd pops a little

Carlito: C’mon Cleveland, you can do better than that … actually, on second thoughts, you probably cant. You people suck as much as the Browns, and that’s saying something.

Crowd gives Heat

Carlito: The colour brown?? Das not cool.

Crowd gives heat.

Carlito: But let me tell you what is cool … and dat … das the first ever guest on the Cabana.

The fans start a Hogan chant.

Carlito: And ladies and gentlemen, that first guest, technically, is the host … ME!!!

The fans boo, whilst Carlito smiles.

Carlito: But, without further ado, let me introduce, MY first guest on the Cabana … for the first time in the WWE in over two years … and for the first time on Raw in over three years … the legend … the great … the immortal … HULK HOGAN!!!!

The fans go apeshit, as **Real American** blasts into the arena. However, the fans start to boo immediately, as they see a midget enter the arena, dressed up as the Hulkster. Carlito tries to pretend it’s the real thing, clapping, as the midget does the Hogan posing all the way down the ramp, eventually getting in the ring, being pelted with cups, and other objects.

Carlito: WOW!!! Hulk Hogan. I always knew people got smaller as they got older, but seriously, you’ve shrunk!!

Fans are genuinely pissed off, with not seeing Hulk Hogan.

Carlito: Hulkster, I’d like to thank you for appearing on the Cabana tonight. I mean, this means a lot to you I’m sure. But the question I’d like to ask is … who is your favourite WWE superstar?? And why is it Carlito???

Midget Hogan: Well brother, I’ll you why dude. It’s because Carlito, you’re like a brother to me, brother. And I want you to run wild here on Raw for the rest of your career, because dude, you say your prayers, you take your vitamins, and you train a lot.

Carlito: Well, thank you Hulkster. I can call you Hulkster right??
Midget Hogan: You can call me anything you want, Carlito, brother.
Carlito: Well, in tha-

**Bagpipes** Rowdy Roddy Piper enters the arena, to a huge ovation. He walks to the ring, pointing at Carlito, who looks a little worried about what Piper might have to say.

Rowdy Roddy Piper: You know Carlito, I have to say, that … I agree. Hulk Hogan has shrunk in the wash!!!

Crowd gives heat, whilst Carlito smiles with relief.

Carlito: You know, Piper … you’re cool!!

Rowdy Roddy Piper: That I am Carlito.

Carlito takes an apple from the keg, and gives it as a gift to Piper.

Rowdy Roddy Piper: Why thank you. Y’know, I was hoping that the real Hogan would be here tonight, so I could personally spit an apple in his face, but Carlito, this freak here will do just fine.

Piper chews on the apple, and gets ready to spit until …

**Childs Play** Eugene enters the arena, looking sad, and runs to the ring, whilst Piper and Carlito look as if they don’t want Eugene around.

Eugene: You cant do that Roddy Rowdy Piper!! That’s Hulk Hogan!!! You cant do that!!!

Piper spit’s the apple in Eugene’s face right away. Eugene screws his face up, trying not to cry, then knocks Piper down with a right hand. Eugene starts to stomp on Piper, until Carlito attacks Eugene, and a two on one beat down ensues. Eugene gets beaten down for a few seconds, until …

**Real American** The roof nearly blows off the arena, as HULK HOGAN enters the arena to an amazing reaction from the fans. Hogan poses to the fans, as Carlito and Piper see the Immortal one walks down the aisle, quickly jumping out, getting away from the Hulkster.

Hogan helps up Eugene in the ring, and takes a mic.


Crowd Pops

Hulk Hogan: Last week, brother, I was sitting at home watching Raw, as I always do, and low and behold dudes, I see Carlito, saying that Hulk Hogan is gonna be the guest on his Cabana. Now Carlito, to be truthful, I’d never want to be your guest dude, but I wanted to make the trip to Cleveland, and see all the Hulkamaniacs in Ohio, tonight on Raw!!!

Crowd Pops

Hulk Hogan: And now that I’m here, I see you trying to put Hulk Hogan, and all the Hulkamaniacs down, with that clown, Roddy Piper by your side!!! Well brother, as you would say Carlito … that’s not cool.

Crowd Pops. On the outside, Carlito shouts ’You cant say that’

Hulk Hogan: But dudes, I have a way to work this out. Carlito, you and Piper, can go get dressed, and later on, you two muppets, can face Hulk Hogan, and his newest Hulkamaniac, Eugene!!

Crowd Pops. Eugene takes the mic from Hogan.

Eugene: So what are you gonna do when Eugene and Hulk Hogan …

The fans go nuts, as Hogan and an overly excited Eugene pose in the ring. Carlito and Piper walk up the ramp, arguing about what just happened, as we cut to a commercial.


Raw on USA Moment - DX imitate the Nation of Domination in 1998

4th Match: ECW Rules; Non - Title Match:
Rey Mysterio vs. Rhyno
Fairly brief hardcore action, with Rhyno controlling the early going, bringing trash cans, a stop sign, and a kendo stick into the match. He whacks Rey with some stiff cracks to the back with the kendo stick. RVD enters the arena, and sits with the announcers, to watch the action unfold, with Mysterio being dominated at this point of the match.
Rhyno continues to be the aggressor, as Rey’s offence becomes limited to some right hands trying to defend himself. Rhyno now attempts a Gore, with Rey directly in front of a trash can in the corner, but Mysterio leapfrogs the Man Beast, who runs into the trashcan!!! Mysterio rolls him up, managing only a two count though.
From here, the Intercontinental Champion gets back into the match, using the trash cans, and the stop sign. The two men go back and forth, with Rhyno looking a little worse for wear after running into the trash can earlier. For the finish, Rhyno runs at Rey, who ducks him, with Rhyno falling into the ropes. Mysterio immediately scores with 619.
Mysterio doesn’t jump up top though, but instead, places a trash can on Rhynos head!!! Rey now leaps to the top rope, and comes off, dropping the dime, smashing the trash can on Rhyno!!! He covers, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Rey Mysterio
Mysterio wins!!! Reys music hits, and the fans gives Mysterio plenty of adulation for another great performance. Meanwhile, RVD stands up on the announce table, and starts to speak…

Rob Van Dam: Rey, congratulations. You beat Rhyno. Don’t forget though, he may be a big, bad son of a bitch, but right now, I’m a loose cannon. I’m The Whole F-

Rey Mysterio: Shut up Rob!!

Crowd Pops

Rey Mysterio: I’ve had to listen to you moan for the last two months. I’ve heard you bitch, whine, complain, and frankly, I’m sure everyone will agree when we say that we’re sick of it!!

Crowd Pops

Rey Mysterio: I trusted you like a true friend Rob, and you betrayed me, yet you complain?? You’ve got what you want. ANOTHER Intercontinental Title shot this Sunday. It’s obvious the title means more to you than a friendship, and I hope it’s worth it. So now Rob, it’s time for you to put up … or shut up!!!

Crowd Pops

Rey Mysterio: What’s it to be??

RVD jumps down from the announce table to walk to the ring, but Alfonso stands in his way, talking to him, calming Van Dam down. Alfonso points for RVD to leave, and takes the mic.

Bill Alfonso: Mysterio, Rob will do all his talking in the ring this Sunday at Nemesis. But just for the record, RVD and the Manager of Champions, Bill Alfonso, are gonna be blowing full time on your Intercontinental Title reign!!! (Alfonso blows his whistle to make his point) Just, like, that!!

Alfonso leads RVD out of the arena, whilst Mysterio nods, ready for the challenge ahead this Sunday.

Backstage, we see John Cena getting prepared for the first blood match later on tonight.


Raw on USA Moment - Mick Foley wins his first ever WWE Championship, defeating The Rock.

5th Match: Womens Championship Match:
Shaniqua vs. Local Jobber
Not quite the squash, as expected, with the challenger showing some grit and determination, kicking out of some high impact moves, and putting together a brief comeback, before Shaniqua steps it up a gear, and delivers a power bomb for a sure win, but instead, she decides to pick her up again, and delivers a second power bomb for good measure, hooking the leg, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Shaniqua
Once again, Shaniqua retains her title, with now just two weeks until she reaches a full year with the title. She raises the belt in the air when…

**Time to Rock and Roll** Trish Stratus enters the arena to a nice ovation, and a few wolf whistles.

Trish Stratus: Well, Shaniqua honey, you just defeated another hometown challenger. Well done. But right now, I wanted to make an announcement … or should I say … challenge. Everyone knows that you are just two weeks away from being Womens Champion for a year, especially me, since it was me you beat for the belt.

Shaniqua nods, then slaps the belt.

Trish Stratus: And I know you’ve given me half a dozen rematches since, so why any different now?? Well, for one, it’s a hometown challenge, and in two weeks, Raw will be emanating from Toronto, Canada … that’s my hometown.

Crowd gives a small pop for Trish

Trish Stratus: So Shaniqua, think of your challenge … accepted!!!

Crowd pops, as Trish exit’s the arena, whilst Shaniqua tells her to bring it

The Coach: Is Trish Stratus out of her mind?? She cant beat Shaniqua!!! I’m concerned. Trish is too beautiful to be mangled by Shaniqua.

Jim Ross: Then why don’t you face Shaniqua??

The Coach: No way. I’m not a woman for a start, but even if I was, I wouldn’t want any of that.

Jim Ross: It could be a very disappointing Homecoming for Trish in two weeks, I have to admit, but tonight, Raw’s homecoming has been anything but a disappointment!!! So much more still to come.

Smackdown Rebound:
- JBL is the guest on the Highlight Reel
- The mind games continue between Triple H & Eddie Guerrero
- The tension between Benoit and Angle heats up.
- Steve Austin returns, saving The Rock from a 2 on 1 beating.


Jim Ross: Folks, it’s been a heck of a show, but don’t leave, because this is a three hour special episode of Raw, marking the homecoming to the USA Network, and still to come, three HUGE matches. Hulk Hogan, back for one night only, teams with Eugene, against Carlito and Rowdy Roddy Piper!!!

The Coach: Of course, tonights main event too, for the first time ever, Sting takes on our World Champion, Shawn Michaels. Title isn’t on the line, but pride is at stake!!!

Jim Ross: This is without doubt, the biggest Raw, of all time!!!

6th Match: 1st Blood Match:
Christian vs. John Cena
Very intense affair, with both men giving their all, showing their intense dislike for one another. Early on, they wrestle the match, with neither looking for blood right away. But once Cena takes control, Captain Charisma starts to take short cuts in order to win the match, gaining control with a low blow, followed by an inverted back breaker.
Christian immediately tries to undo the top turnbuckle, but takes too long with the padding, and John Cena recovers, to fight back with Christian still busy trying to take off the padding. Cena takes control again, knocking down CC a number of times, but Christian again gets the advantage back, pulling Cena down by the hair. This time, Christian does manage to take the padding off the turnbuckle, and he tries to ram Cena’s head into it, but John blocks it, and fights back against his opponent, with both men going down, trying to clothesline each other, as the match goes to a commercial.
Following the commercial, Christian is dominant, wearing down Cena, choking him in the corner. Christian puts Cena down with a reverse DDT, before rolling out of the ring, picking up the ring bell. He slides back in, and swings at Cena, but John Cena ducks, then kicks the bell from his hand, before getting him up for the FU … but Christian fights out, and knocks Cena down with a clothesline.
Captain Charisma slides out again, and takes a CHEESE GRATER from under the ring, smiling broadly. He gets back in, and tries to grate the face of Cena, but the former champion blocks it, and fights for his life to push Christian away, eventually doing so. Christian runs at Cena, but is caught by surprise with a dropkick. Now, Cena picks up the weapon, and he and Christian struggle, trying to bust the other open, with both eventually slipping.
The match breaks down again, back and forth, with the fight hitting the outside of the ring. The two men take control at various times, with both having the same idea, to bust the other open, bouncing each others head off the steps, whips into the ringpost, head first, but to no avail.
Eventually, they get back inside, with Christian poking Cenas eye. He goes for the Unprettier, but Cena pushes him away, into the ropes, before knocking him down with a shoulder tackle. Both men are down … AND THE LIGHTS GO OUT …
Demonic music plays for a few seconds, as much as twenty, with the arena in darkness, before the lights come back on, and in the ring, we see Christian flat out … AND BUSTED OPEN!!! John Cena looks around in shock, as the referee calls for the bell.
Winner: John Cena
The lights go out again, as Cena’s music is cut off, and a graphic image comes up on the screen, with clips of The Undertaker beating the hell out of Christian last week, before the lights come back, and we see The Undertaker at the top of the ramp, on one knee, with his chest covered in blood, likely to be Christians. Captain Charisma starts to recover in the ring, and realises what has happened. He looks to be in fear of The Deadman, with Cena also looking a little perplexed by the entire situation.

Backstage, we see Shawn Michaels stretching for the main event, later tonight.

Jim Ross: Ladies and Gentlemen, we are hotly anticipating the main event this evening. The legendary Sting, takes on Shawn Michaels, for the first time ever, before the two men are joined by John Cena, Christian, Randy Orton and The Undertaker this Sunday, for a Six Pack Challenge, elimination rules match, with The World Title on the line!!!

**Spit in the face**

The Coach: But are you ready for some tag team action!!! Hulk Hogan and Eugene, to go toe to toe with Roddy Piper, and this man, Carlito!!!
Jim Ross: That to come, right after this commercial break!!!

7th Match:
Carlito & Rowdy Roddy Piper vs. Hulk Hogan & Eugene
Pretty short, bland match, but the crowd is hot throughout. Eugene and Carlito spend the most time in the ring, after the opening few minutes of all four getting in on the action, with Hogan mainly in charge.
The heel team begin to dominate Eugene, leaving Hogan to get fired up on the outside. Piper doesn’t do too much, even on the attack, with Carlito again doing the brunt of the work on Eugene. Eventually, Piper makes a wrong move, slapping Eugene, which gets Eugene fired up. Eugene starts to ‘Hulk Up’ like his idol, and starts the classic finger pointing taunt, which spooks out Piper. Eugene hit’s the big boot, as well as the Junk Yard Dog head butts, before tagging in Hogan to a massive ovation.
Hulkster clears the ring, and eventually, it comes down to Piper and Hogan in the ring alone, whilst CCC and Eugene battle on the outside. Rowdy goes for his patented sleeper, but Hogan elbows free, does his classic taunts, ‘hulking up’, before pounding Piper, hitting the big boot, and dropping the immortal leg drop, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Hulk Hogan & Eugene
CCC doesn’t bother with Piper, and gets out of the arena right away, whilst Eugene and Hogan celebrate. The two men celebrate for quite a bit, eventually, leading into a commercial.


We return in the ring, with a group of special guest legends, such as Harley Race, Ted DiBiase, Moolah, Mae Young, Jimmy Snuka, Dusty Rhodes, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Ricky Steamboat, Road Warrior Animal, Don Muraco, Sgt. Slaughter, Tito Santana, Greg Valentine, and a couple of others, receiving a standing ovation from the fans. They wave to the appreciative fans for the reaction, until…

**Space Odyssey 3000** Ric Flair enters the arena, along with Batista, to a tonne of heat from the fans.

Jim Ross: What?? Coach, I was under the impression that Flair and Batista had the night off, in preparation for this Sunday.

The Coach: Well, do did I J.R, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. And I’m glad they are here.

Flair and Batista enter the ring, with Flair ignoring some of the legends offering handshakes, much to the fans dislike.

Ric Flair: Every single one of you should be ashamed. Ashamed of the shell of a man each and every one of you used to be. Not one of you, could hold my jock nowadays.

Crowd gives heat.

Ric Flair: Harley Race, you can barely stand without feeling crippled with pain, and that brings a tear to my eye. To see you, barely able to walk, after being one of, if not, the second greatest wrestler ever, after the Nature Boy.

Crowd gives more heat.

Ric Flair: And to see you decrepit as you are now … it makes me want to take you out the back, take a gun to your head, and put you out of your misery.

Race looks genuinely upset at Flairs comment, as the fans start a ‘We Want Foley’ chant, which Flair, for the time being, ignores.

Ric Flair: Steamboat. To look at you now, and think you were one of the greatest in ring performers just 15 or 16 years ago, you’d think I was lying through my teeth. I’d doubt Ricky, that you could even jump out of bed in the mornings, let alone, jump to that top rope.

Steamboat shakes his head in disgust, as the fans give more heat.

Ric Flair: Dusty Rhodes. Dusty, Dusty, Dusty. I would never have thought you could look any worse, but it appears to me ’Dweem’, that you can. (Fans give heat, but Flair continues to speak) Ted DiBiase, in many peoples opinion, you are probably the greatest wrestler, never to have won a World Title, and rightly so. Ted, you should have been a world champion at some point, but for the love of god, why let yourself go because of it. (More heat, but Flair continues) Snuka?? Whatever it is your on, I don’t want any, if it means I’ll end up as crazy as you are … Why the hell are you here Duggan?? You’re not a legend, nor is Slaughter, or Santana. You guys, make me sick. Every last one of ya. (Crowd continues to get louder with heat for Flair, with another ‘We Want Foley’ chant breaking out) You see, all of you, are riding on my coat tails. If it wasn’t for Ric Flair, none of you would even be remembered, never mind be here tonight, appreciated. And yet, you’re all too deluded to realize it. And if I hear one more chant for Mick Foley, I think I’ll go crazy.

Fans give heat.

Ric Flair: You see, I’m the legendary icon, that can still go. In one way or another, father time has crept up, and tapped each and every one of you on the shoulder, and told you that your time was up, and you accepted it. Me?? When I feel that finger tap me on the shoulder, I turn around, and slap Father Time in the face.
And this Sunday, at Nemesis, Mick Foley, Cactus Jack, I will enter your world, and slap you in the face too.

Crowd gives heat.

Ric Flair: This Sunday, I’ll prove that this old man can still go. I can still mix it with the best of them, no matter what age I am. Because, as the saying goes, you’re only as old as you feel, and WOOOO … The Nature Boy still feels like he did twenty years ago. Cactus, this Sunday, I will finish what I started three weeks ago.
Then, in ten years down the road, you can join Road Warrior Animal, Harley Race, Greg Valentine, and the rest of the broken down has beens, as one of them … a broken down has been, whilst I, Ric Flair, defy logic, and remain, The Nature Boy … WOOOOOOOO!!!!

Flairs music hits again, and the 16 Time Champion exit’s the ring, smiling broadly, seemingly confident of his chances this Sunday, whilst the legends stand in the ring, disgusted with Flairs comments.


Raw on USA Moment - Steve Austin stuns McMahon for the first time.

Jim Ross: Welcome back to Raw folks. It’s been an emotional, roller coaster of a ride here tonight in Cleveland. We’ve witnessed Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Cactus Jack, 1st Blood, a Cage Match, and so much more.

The Coach: Indeed we have J.R, but it doesn’t get much bigger than tonight’s main event.

Jim Ross: It’s a dream match, waiting to happen, and tonight, on the USA Network, it does. Sting and Shawn Michaels, lock horns, for the first time ever, tonight, as a pre-cursor to this Sunday at Nemesis.

The Coach: And speaking of Nemesis, the card is loaded from top to bottom. Just announced tonight, The World Tag Titles are on the line, with Roadkill and Doring challenging my boys, the DX Duo, in a tables match!!!

Jim Ross: Indeed, but as far as the rest of the card, rather than Coach and I running through it, how about, we show you this video…

The Coach: I’m sure even a cheapskate like you would purchase with that type of offer, wouldn’t you J.R??

Jim Ross: I’m not a cheap skate Coach.

The Coach: Yeah you are.

Jim Ross: Oh, what are you?? In the third grade?? Folks, coming up next, is Shawn Michaels facing Sting, for the first time ever!!! Don’t go anywhere!!!

Main Event: Non - Match:
Shawn Michaels vs. Sting
The two men kick off with a good old fashioned slug fest, before Sting gets the best of the action. Michaels decides to try and slow it down, after losing the opening exchange. The two men lock up, and struggle around the ring a number of times, with breaks being forced each time.
After a number of struggles, HBK takes the low road, and rakes the eyes, before taking Sting down, and wrestles him on the mat for a few moments, before trying to apply a sleeper, to no avail, as Sting fights back up, and knocks Shawn down three times, before HBK once again leaves the ring to gather his thoughts, and the match cuts to a commercial.
We return, with Sting still causing Michaels problems, managing to be too much for the Heart Break Kid at this point. HBK comes back with chops, but Sting strikes back with some of his own too. The match goes back and forth for a brief period, but nothing is going Shawn Michaels way at this point. HBK then slides out of the ring, waving the match off, and starts to walk up the ramp, getting himself counted out, with the referee eventually reaching ten.
Winner: Sting - Via Countout

Michaels is set to walk behind the curtain when…

**No Chance** Mr. McMahon enters for the second time tonight, to an equally huge ovation from the fans.

Mr. McMahon: Cut the music!!!

Music stops.

Mr. McMahon: Shawn Michaels, I’m not letting you ruin this edition of Raw, no way. Michaels, turn around, and get your ass back to that ring. Referee, restart this match, only this time, I want THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE ON THE LINE!!!!

Crowd Pops

Mr. McMahon: Oh, and before I forget, if Shawn Michaels gets counted out, or disqualified, he will LOSE the World Heavyweight Championship!!!

Crowd Pops

Michaels is furious as the bell sounds to restart the match. The referee starts to count Michaels out, and HBK is left with no choice but to run back to the ring for the match.

World Heavyweight Championship Match:
Shawn Michaels vs. Sting
Sting once again dominates the lacklustre HBK, teeing off with vertical suplexes, side suplexes, and a Northern Lights, all for near falls, as we cut to another commercial break, the last of the evening.
We return, with Michaels now in control, wearing down the back of Sting, hitting three consecutive back breakers, for three two counts. Michaels continues to take out Sting, and applies a Surfboard, with Sting showing the pain on his face, but as Michaels synches in, his shoulders are down … 1...2...KICK OUT!!! HBK pushed up just in time, almost not realising the count.
He argues with the official, which gives Sting time to recover. Sting nails an inverted atomic drop on Michaels, before going for the Stinger Splash, but Michaels moves out of the way. Sting staggers out and Shawn goes for Sweet Chin Music, only for Sting to catch the foot get a heel trip, and, apply THE SCORPION DEATHLOCK!!!
HBK looks set to tap, but digs deep, and claws his way to the ropes, forcing the break!!! Sting reluctantly lets go, but as soon as Michaels is up, Sting goes for the Scorpion death drop … but Michaels blocks it, and fights free, taking down Sting with a DDT!!!
The Showstopper doesn’t pin, but goes up top, posing to the fans, before taking off, and scoring with a Elbow!!! Cover, 1...2...FOOT ON THE ROPE!!! The Heart Break Kid cant believe it!!! He starts to tune up the band, wanting to end the match now for sure, and as Sting gets up, Michaels goes for it, but Stinger ducks, then looks for a clothesline, but Michaels ducks, and SCORES WITH SWEET CHIN MUSIC!!! He covers, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: Shawn Michaels
HBK is the winner, but as soon as his hand is raised, Michaels starts laying the boots to the fallen legend, until JOHN CENA AND RANDY ORTON sprint down the aisle into the ring, with both taking HBK down!!! The two men beat the hell out of the World Champion, but then running down the aisle comes DX with Christian and Tomko following down.

Sting, Orton and Cena are unable to fight the odds of six men, but then, Roadkill and Doring come through the crowd to help, only to be cut off by Cade and Jindrak. The 6 on 5 odds, are too much for the faces to take, with the heels dominating thanks to the extra man. Suddenly …

Lights go out


The lights come back, and THE UNDERTAKER is in the ring. Tomko is booted down, whilst Reigns is thrown straight out of the ring for his troubles!!! Cade and Jindrak try to double team The Deadman, but both get caught, and get put down with a DOUBLE CHOKESLAM!!!!

Christian thinks about going for Taker, but instead, takes the safe option, and slides out of the ring, getting up the ramp as quickly as possible. Meanwhile, Orton and Cena throw Michaels out of the ring, leaving the six faces standing tall. But Taker isn’t done yet!! As Orton turns around, he is gripped by Taker, and immediately Chokeslammed!!! Roadkill tries to stop him, but is clotheslined out of the ring, with Doring following. The Deadman has snapped, as Cena tries to take him down, to no avail, getting the big boot, followed by a devastating Last Ride!!!

Sting now tries to intervene, but after already wrestling a gruelling match, he is no match for The Phenom, and is easily disposed of to the outside.

Orton staggers up, as Undertaker does his cut throat taunt, then takes Orton up, into position, and delivers THE TOMBSTONE!!!

The Undertaker’s music hits again, with him on one knee, his eyes rolled back, having just wiped out all the competition for Nemesis in one fail swoop.

End of Show


Smackdown; October 6th; Dayton:

Opening Video


Michael Cole: Seventy Two hours separate us from WWE Nemesis this Sunday, and tonight marks the last stop, as Smackdown hit’s the screens, live as always, and as always, I’m Michael Cole, joined by Tazz.

Tazz: Dayton better be ready Cole, because tonight, we have ourselves a rocket buster of a line up.

Michael Cole: Indeed we do. Goldberg and Brock Lesnar are in action, once again, as a tune up for this Sunday, once again, facing two opponents for this Sundays event, in the shape of Chris Benoit & WWE Champion, Kurt Angle!!!

Tazz: That’s gonna blow the roof off this arena. Monday Night on Raw, Goldberg and Lesnar defeated Eddie Guerrero and Triple H, after The Game walked out on Guerrero.

Michael Cole: And both Guerrero and Triple H will be in action, as The Game teams with the mammoth Matt Morgan, to face Eddie and Matt Hardy.

Tazz: Two huge tag team matches, and of course, you forgot to mention that The Rock and Steve Austin will be here too!!!

**Viva La Raza** Eddie Guerrero enters the arena to a thunderous ovation from the fans. Latino Heat drives down the ramp to the ring, before leaping out of his low rider. Eddie pounds his chest, then points to the fans, as he slides into the ring.

Guerrero is handed a mic, as the music dies down, and he prepares to speak.

Eddie Guerrero: Dayton, Ohio, d-

Crowd pops for mention of their hometown. This soon breaks down, into an ‘Eddie’ chant.

Eddie Guerrero: Did you see Raw on Monday Night??

Crowd boos

Eddie Guerrero: I’ll take that as a yes vatos. And just like me Dayton, you didn’t like what happened one bit. Going to Raw on Monday Night, I was excited holmes, even though, I was having to team with Triple H, I was really excited to be part of the biggest Raw of all time. But, by the end of the night, I was … pissed off.

Crowd starts another ‘Eddie’ chant.

Eddie Guerrero: And that, was once again, because of Triple H.

Crowd boos at mention of Triple H.

Eddie Guerrero: This is developing into quite a pattern vato’s. The last two weeks on Smackdown, Triple H has been frustrating me, and getting under my skin, trying to really rile me essa, but you know what?? I’m not gonna let him win this one. I’m not gonna please him, and lose my temper, no, no. Triple H, wherever you are in the building, make sure you hear this. A-

**Time to Play the Game** Triple H, already dressed for action, but wearing a T-Shirt for now, enters the arena, smiling, as Guerrero looks ready to boil over.

Triple H: (Grinning) What’s wrong Eddie?? You look a little frustrated.

Eddie Guerrero: Oh, vato, I’m not just frustrated, I’m ready to explode essa.

Triple H: Well, isn’t that a pity. I mean, that Latino temper of yours could really get you into trouble. I just hope, that it doesn’t lead to you losing your cool tonight, or this Sunday for that matter, and you end up getting disqualified. (Triple H smiles again) No one would want that, would they??

Eddie Guerrero: That’s true, holmes. No one would want that, except for you. Triple H, I know your plan, and I’m telling you right now … it wont happen. I know your playing mind games with me, and yes, right now, I’m pissed off, but that doesn’t mean I’ll end up doing something stupid, and get myself disqualified holmes. But, believe me, this Sunday, hell, tonight essa, I get a chance to unload my Latino Heat, and I’ll take great pleasure in doing so.

Crowd pops

Triple H: Well Eddie, that’s all well and good, but I just don’t believe you can unload that temper, without doing something stupid, and once again, lose to me, like you always do. Lets face it, who can blame me. You’re a loose cannon Eddie. Once you go into that zone, you’re gone, to the point where you’ll get yourself disqualified, or you’ll screw up, and allow me to strike, and leave you down and out.
I’ll be honest, I don’t care how I do it, whether it be by DQ, count out, pinfall of submission, I just care about beating you, and once again, tonight, and in three days time, I will beat you. Mentally, emotionally, and physically, you’ll will crumble, like you always do when you go head to head, with me.

Eddie Guerrero: No. Not this time essa. This time, YOU LOSE … and I WIN!!! I don’t care whether you believe it or not, because this Sunday, I’ll make sure you believe, when I back it up, and finally, beat your ass, and wipe that smirk right off your face holmes!!!

Crowd Pops

Triple H: Talk, is cheap Guerrero. I’m just interested to see if you can actually back it up too. You see, I’ve heard, too many times, from your mouth that you were gonna beat me, you were gonna beat me, you were gonna beat me, but every time, you couldn’t back it up, whereas I did. This Sunday, will be no different.
You only have twenty minutes Eddie. I havent lost a match in under twenty minutes for a hell of a long time. And this Sunday will be no different. The question isn’t whether you can beat me inside twenty minutes, the question, is can you survive being in the ring with me for that length of time, because I don’t think you can.
Don’t build your hopes up Guerrero, because this Sunday, I’ll bring them all crashing down to reality. And the reality is, for twenty minutes at Nemesis, I will maim you, I will cripple you, and I will make sure you never come back for me again. This is the last time Guerrero. Twenty Minutes for you to beat me, in my opinion, is impossible.

**Time To Play The Game** Triple H exit’s the stage, still smiling, whilst Guerrero stands in the ring, still looking furious at Triple H.


We return, with Simon Dean standing in the ring, with his partner, Chris Masters on the outside, giving him some encouragement.

Michael Cole: Welcome back to Smackdown, and coming up now, we have ourselves a fatal four way, as a preview for this Sunday at Nemesis, as we learned this past weekend on, that at Nemesis this weekend, that AMW will defend the tag titles against three viable Number One Contenders, in the shape of The System Success, The Basham Brothers, and the ever so unique AFA.

Tazz: That one is gonna be off the hook at Nemesis Cole. I cannot wait for that one.

1st Match: Fatal Four Way:
Simon Dean vs. Doug Basham vs. Rico vs. James Storm
All four men have their respective tag partners with them at ringside as back up, and as support, against the other competitors. The action is pretty fast paced, with the four men putting in a decent effort. Rico appears to be a little more focused for this one, rather than his usual flamboyance, and shows how dangerous of a competitor he is. The match breaks down into a brawl, once Danny Basham gets involved, which leads to the rest of the partners getting included too in retaliation. Rico and Simmons brawl with Masters and Dean on the outside, whilst The Basham Brothers look to perform an illegal double team on Storm, but Harris helps his partner, fending off Danny Basham back to the outside, which distracts Doug long enough for Storm to roll him up, 1...2...3!!!
Winner: James Storm
Storm rolls out, whilst Doug Basham is in shock after being taken by surprise for the loss. AMW celebrate up the ramp, and signal to the ring that this Sunday they will remain the champions.

Michael Cole: Well tonight, AMW got a singles win, but will they be able to do it once again, this Sunday at Nemesis?? Will AMW’s near five month reign come to an end this Sunday, or will they once again, fight off the challengers??

Tazz: It’ll be so hard to call Cole, with four very different teams in that equation.

Michael Cole: Well, still to come tonight, Steve Austin and The Rock will be here, as well as two HUGE tag team match ups. What a night this is gonna be. And right now, I believe that Josh Matthews has a special guest with him backstage…

Josh Matthews: Thank you Michael, and right now, I’m standing alongside the newest member of the Smackdown roster, Gene Snitsky.

The camera turns to the deranged face of Snitsky.

Josh Matthews: And last week, you made a major impact upon debuting here on Smackdown, delivering a piledriver on Torrie Wilson, as well as attacking the man who brought you to the WWE, Kanyon. My question, is why??

Gene Snitsky: (Laughs) Josh, if you remember, Torrie turned down an invitation from Kanyon to join our little club, and I didn’t like that. Kanyon let it go, like the schmuck he is, and decided not to make her pay for turning us down … (smiles) but I didn’t. (laughs again) Torrie Wilson has now learnt her lesson not to say no to Snitsky. And as for Kanyon, well, he was just too nice to be on my side.

Josh Matthews: Well, speaking of Torrie, since last week, Doctors have revealed that her neck was broken, due to the impact taken from the devastating piledriver you delivered last week. Do you not feel any remorse to that?? Torrie’s career may be over now, due to your attack.

Gene Snitsky: Josh, let me tell you this … Torrie brought it on herself. She flaunts her little toosh around, and doesn’t expect men to ask her to link up with them?? That’s not how it works. Torrie deserves what happened to her, as a lesson not to be a tease. What happened last week … It Wasn’t My Fault.

Josh Matthews: How can you say that?? You may have possibly ended a young woman’s career, and you sa-

Snitsky grabs Josh by the throat, and pins him against the wall. He breathes heavily, before speaking to Josh.

Gene Snitsky: Say it with me Josh … It Wasn’t My Fault.

Josh Matthews: It … it… It wasn’t your fault.

Snitsky smiles, and lets Josh go, before fixing Matthews jacket, and pats down his hair.

Gene Snitsky: That’s better. Thank you for your time Josh.

Snitsky walks off, whilst Josh looks on, in fear.

Back to ringside;

Michael Cole: What has Snitsky been smoking?? It wasn’t his fault?? The guy broke Torrie Wilsons neck, and now he has the audacity to claim it was her own fault?? Gimme a break.

Tazz: I wouldn’t want to get on the wrong side of that guy. Some serious problems there if you ask me.

Michael Cole: Snitsky will be in action later tonight, but in just a few moments time, get ready, and brace yourselves … it’s gonna be Brock Lesnar and Goldberg taking on Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit, right after this commercial break.


2nd Match:
Brock Lesnar & Goldberg w/Paul Heyman vs. Kurt Angle & Chris Benoit
Excellent match, with even Goldberg looking good, thanks to the world class opponents. Angle and Benoit work pretty well together, but it is clear that there is tension brewing between the two men. Lesnar and Goldberg also work well together, and seem to be gelling exceptionally quickly as a team, ahead of their match this Sunday. Early on, after being caught trying to interfere, Paul Heyman to sent to the back by the official, which evens out the match for both teams.
The match runs through a commercial break, with Goldberg and Lesnar in control before and after the commercial, wearing down Chris Benoit. Kurt Angle doesn’t seem to concerned, but still holds his interest to get a tag, as Lesnar and Goldberg pick apart Benoit.
The Wolverine though, fights back, showing his return to top form in recent weeks, managing a comeback, eventually tagging in his partner. Angle takes the tag, and enters, all guns blazing, knocking down Goldberg and Lesnar, two of his biggest adversaries in recent years, and pops off a few Belly to Belly suplexes, along with a German Suplex to both men.
Angle knocks Goldberg out of the ring, and pulls down the straps for the Anklelock on Lesnar, but Brock kicks him away. Lesnar gets Angle up for the F5, but Angle drops down, and connects with the Angle Slam, but as Lesnar goes back, he connects with the referee.
On the outside, Goldberg whips Benoit into the steel steps, before re-entering with a steel chair. Goldberg nails an unsuspecting Angle with the weapon to the back, before helping Brock to his feet. Lesnar tells Goldberg to go for the Spear, and Goldberg nods in agreement. But as Goldberg stands in the corner, Chris Benoit, on the outside, trips him, and yanks him, crotch first, into the ringpost.
Lesnar sees this, and watches, as Benoit picks up a chair, entering the ring. Lesnar also picks up the chair Goldberg brought in, and is set to meet Benoit with it, but Kurt Angle quickly swipes it from him, and Benoit swings his chair at Lesnar … But Brock ducks … and Benoit smashes Angles head!!!!
Benoits mouth opens wide in shock, whilst Lesnar quickly throws Benoit out of the ring, and covers the WWE Champion with the referee recovering … 1...2...3!!!
Winners: Brock Lesnar and Goldberg
Lesnar immediately rolls out of the ring, and helps Goldberg up, as the behemoth tag team picks up its second major victory in one week.

Michael Cole: Brock Lesnar has just pinned the WWE Champion!!! Mis communication between Benoit and Angle, has led to a second victory in four days for Lesnar and Goldberg. First, on Raw against Triple H & Eddie Guerrero, and now, against Kurt Angle & Chris Benoit.

Tazz: I’m in shock Cole. We sure as hell aren’t used to seeing Angle get pinned, but tonight, Brock Lesnar took advantage of the mix up between Benoit and Angle, to get himself a win.

Michael Cole: And you gotta believe that the relationship between Angle and Benoit is paper thin right now.

Chris Benoit starts to walk up he ramp, pissed off for the loss, especially after it was due to a mix up between him and Angle. In the ring, Angle is slowly recovering, and asking for a mic. He is handed a mic, as he starts to pull himself up on the ropes.

Kurt Angle: Benoit!!! Get your ass back here to this ring.

Benoit stops, and turns around, looking to the ring, as Angle signals for him to come back. Benoit looks around, and begins to walk back into the ring. Benoit climbs through the ropes, and looks across the ring, at an irate Angle.

Kurt Angle: What the hell was that about??

Chris Benoit: You know it was an accident Kurt. Brock moved, and it was too late for me to pull away.

Kurt Angle: What?? Do you believe me to swallow that crap?? You know you cant beat me, so you decided to give yourself a head start for this Sunday.

Chris Benoit: Get over yourself Kurt. Believe me, I don’t need a head start going into Nemesis, because right now, I’m more determined right now than I’ve ever been, and taking a short cut, isn’t what I’m about.

Kurt Angle: Oh, stop it Benoit. Stop pretending you’re a man of great honour. You brought that chair into the ring, not me. You were gonna t-

Chris Benoit: No. Don’t bother with that. Angle, I brought the chair in as an equalizer, to help you. I don’t want to win the WWE Championship this Sunday against a less than 100% Kurt Angle?? I want to make you tap out with no excuses.

Kurt Angle: Forget it Chris. Just forget it. You wont make me tap out, but I’ll break your freakin ankle.

Benoit takes exception to the comment, and gets in Angles face.

Chris Benoit: Kurt, if one of us is tapping out this Sunday, it sure as hell isn’t gonna be me.

Angle goes head to head with Benoit now

Kurt Angle: Prepare to be disappointed Benoit, because just like always, you’ll come close, but for you, there will be no Champagne moment, no celebration, but just another close shave with immortality, whilst I, continue to reign as WWE Champion … its true, its … true.

Chris Benoit: I don’t think so Kurt. I’ve battled too hard, and I’ve waited too long to let this opportunity pass me by one more time. I’m more dangerous now, than I’ve ever been, or ever will be, and that is a fact.

Kurt Angle: You know something Chris. Time for talking is pretty much over, and now you’ll have to back it up, but I just don’t think you can.

Chris Benoit: Well, we’ll find out this Sunday, wont we??

Kurt Angle: I suppose we’ll find out … just how much better, and more superior of an athlete I am to you.

Benoit goes head to head again with Angle, and Angle shoves the Wolverine. Benoit shoves Angle back, and Kurt takes a swipe at Benoit, but Benoit catches Angles arm, and goes for the Crossface, but Angle scrambles free, and tries to take the ankle of Benoit for an Anklelock, to no avail, as Benoit escapes.

Both men stand across the ring from each other, with the intensity rising, as officials run to the ring, to keep the two men apart, as the show goes to a commercial.


We return with highlights from before the break, as emotions between Angle and Benoit ran high, leading to a short fight.

Backstage, Steve Romero is with John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield…

Steve Romero: Mr. Layfield, in just three days, you face Chris Jericho in a stretcher match, with your United States Championship on the line. Your thoughts??

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: I’m thinking you’re right Steve. Chris Jericho challenges me for MY United States Championship. The Championship, that NO ONE can take from me. Eddie Guerrero couldn’t do it, Hardcore Holly couldn’t do it, and I’ll be damned if Chris Jericho is gonna do it. What does this Championship say?? What is it called??

Steve Romero: It’s the United States Championship.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: Exactly. The United States Championship. It is not, repeat, NOT, the Canadian love boat Championship, yet Bret hart seems to have it warped into his mind, that anyone but an American should hold this coveted championship.
There is a conspiracy backstage, going on, in which Bret Hart is attempting to sabotage my success, my glory, by fitting me into matches where I don’t need to be pinned to lose, and this Sunday, is a prime example. A stretcher match is perhaps the most barbaric, sadistic match you can comprehend. To win, you must obliterate your opponent, and place him on a stretcher, before pulling him across a line.
It is a match created by sadists, and now, Bret Hart is channelling those sadists, by bringing this sick, twisted match back.
But it will backfire. Bret Hart deep down wants his fellow Canadian, Chris Jericho to be victorious, but instead, I promise … no … I guarantee you, he will be rendered useless once I am finished with him this Sunday Night. I will bloody him, I will break his bones, and I will end his wrestling career. If Chris Jericho is lucky, I will allow him to continue his pathetic, so called, ‘music’ career, which in time will fizzle out quicker than an Ultimate Warrior comeback.
Chris Jericho, you call what you do singing, you call what you do in the ring wrestling. But I’ll take Willie Nelson, and Hank Williams over your noise you call music. And I will show you how its done in the ring too, this Sunday. Chris Jericho, you will lose to me this Sunday in the Stretcher Match, and I will remain the United States Champion … and that Chris Jericho … is a guarantee.

3rd Match: Cruiserweight Championship Match:
Paul London vs. Nunzio
Decent short contest, but doesn’t get to pick up to another level. Nunzio gets a near fall with the Sicilian slice, but London manages to kick out at two. London eventually picks up the win with the ever impressive 450 Splash.
Winners: Paul London
London is jubilant in victory, raising the belt high in the air. His celebration is short lived though, as from behind, JAMIE NOBLE attacks the Champion. Noble pounds London down, trash talking all the while.
Noble hit’s the Tiger Bomb, on the Champion, and raises the title belt high in the air, yelling at London that sooner or later, he will get his shot at the title.

Michael Cole: It appears that The Cabinet is hell bent on winning Championship gold. JBL already has the U.S Title, The Bashams have a chance to become the Tag Champions this Sunday, and now, Jamie Noble has set his sights on Paul Londons title. The Cabinet is beginning to make its mark on Smackdown folks, but will they follow it up??

Tazz: Well Cole, I haven’t seen anyone put the Cruiserweight Champion down like that since he has been champion. No one has been that vicious in wanting the title, and Paul London may just find himself in trouble if you ask me.

Michael Cole: A lot more still to come right here on Thursday Night Smackdown, when we come back…


Raw Rebound:
- The return to the USA Network.
- Cactus Jack’s eerie promo, building up to this Sunday at Nemesis.
- Carlitos Cabana with A Midget Hulk Hogan, and Roddy Piper, before The Real Hogan enters, setting up a tag match later in the show, with Hogan and Eugene beating Carlito and Piper.
- John Cena beats Christian thanks to The Undertaker.
- HBK defeats Sting in the main event, before a melee, finishing with Undertaker on top.

Back to ringside…

Michael Cole: What a night it was Tazz. Raw is back on the USA Network, and I gotta admit, they pulled it right outta the bag with a top notch show.

Tazz: Without a shadow of a doubt Cole. Awesome, awesome stuff. And let me be the first to say, The Undertaker is someone you just don’t want to mess with right now.

Michael Cole: He was on rare form this past Monday, but switching gears, back to Smackdown, and backstage, Maria, is with Chris Jericho.

Tazz: This should be a blast…

Maria: That is right. Hi everybody, I’m here with Chris Jericho. And in three days, you face JBL in a Stretcher Match. But Chris, my question, is th-

Chris Jericho: I really don’t mean to be rude sweet cheeks, but would you PLEEEEEEASE SHUT THE HELL UP!!!

Crowd Pops. Maria signals her shutting up, by putting her index finger over her mouth.

Chris Jericho: JBL, you have been Just Bloody Lucky for the past four months … but in three days, you will be nothing more than Justa Big Loser!!! Its fitting that we’ll be getting it on like Donkey Kong, in a stretcher match, due to the fact you tried to end my career, just eight weeks ago, by wheeling me off the Smackdown stage, because JBL, I intend on doing the exact same to you at Nemesis, right after I wheel you over the finish line to become the NEW United States Champion.
And believe me, because I should know, when I wheel you off the stage, you might live, you might die, but I promise, you will NEVER … EVVVVVVVVERRRR be the same again!!!
And (starts talking mockingly) JBL can “guarantee” victory all he wants, but that claim is worth about as much as a comedy evening with Lance Storm. But here is something you can take to the bank, and it’ll be worth something along the lines of a ticket to WrestleMania, and that is a guarantee from the First Ever Unnnnnnndisputed Champion … the ayatollah of rock and rolla … the Highlight of the Night … Chris Jericho … GUARANTEES you, that I will wheel JBL over the line this Sunday, and become the NEW U.S Champion.

Jericho then quickly grabs Maria and plants a kiss on her, before storming away from the interview. Maria stands for a moment, before fainting.

Michael Cole: (Laughing) Looks like Maria is gonna need some help to recover … wanna give her a kiss of life Tazz??

Tazz: Don’t tempt me Cole.

Michael Cole: But looking at the bigger picture, get this, earlier tonight, JBL guarantees a victory against Jericho this Sunday … just a minute ago … Chris Jericho guarantees a victory. One man is gonna find himself disappointed on Sunday.

Tazz: Damn right. No two ways about it either Cole. No stoppages, no cop outs, one guy is gonna win, and one guy is gonna lose.

4th Match:
Gene Snitsky vs. Kanyon
Kanyon comes out all guns blazing wanting revenge on Snitsky after last weeks attack, and although the match isn’t a squash, Snitsky is dominant, and despite the best efforts of Kanyon, he is unable to stop the destructive Snitsky, who gets the victory with a Pumphandle Slam.
Winner: Gene Snitsky
Snitsky has his hand raised in the air, before leaning over the ropes, sticking his tongue out, looking wacky, and just weird.

Michael Cole: Impressive debut for Gene Snitsky tonight on Smackdown Tazz.

Tazz: To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect from this guy tonight, but Snitsky showed here that he is gonna be a player around here. He took Kanyons best, and still disposed of him in pretty dominating fashion.

Michael Cole: Well, when we come back, it’ll be Triple H teaming with Matt Morgan, to face Eddie Guerrero and Matt Hardy. You don’t want to miss this, after this commercial break


5th Match:
Triple H & Matt Morgan vs. Eddie Guerrero & Matt Hardy
Passable match, but fails to really deliver anything thrilling, with Eddie and HHH seemingly holding back for Nemesis this Sunday. Neither side gets a long advantage over the other, unlike most tag matches. Triple H continuously tries to keep away from Eddie, trying to frustrate Guerrero, but Eddie shakes it off, not concerned, which in fact pisses Triple H off instead.
Hardy and Morgan are the legal men, and as Hardy lines up for the Twist of Fate, Triple H breaks it, which leads to Eddie getting involved, knocking Triple H out of the ring. Eddie and The Game brawl on the outside, with The Game whipping Latino Heat into the steps.
HHH then grabs a Sledgehammer from under the ring, and makes his way back inside, waiting for a right moment to strike, as once again, Hardy appears to be setting up for the Twist of Fate, but as Triple H lines up to strike, Eddie is back in, and grabs the hammer from him. Triple H immediately chickens out of the ring, as Hardy executes the Twist of Fate. Triple H thinks for a second about getting in to break the cover, but with Eddie waiting for him, The Game decides to leave, as Hardy covers, 1...2...3!!!
Winners: Matt Hardy & Eddie Guerrero
Guerrero and Hardy hug in the ring, celebrating the victory, before Eddie looks to the outside again, staring up the ramp at Triple H who tries to blow the tag loss off, pointing to his wrist, telling Guerrero he has only 20 minutes to beat him this Sunday.

Michael Cole: Indeed, it is just three days away, WWE Nemesis comes your way, live from Freedom Hall, in Louisville, Kentucky. And what a theme song, Planets, by Adema. That is a rockin tune.

Tazz: And I’d like to apologise to Adema for Michael Cole ruining your career by giving props to your song.

Michael Cole: Whatever, this Sunday, Eddie Guerrero has twenty minutes to defeat Triple H, a man, he has NEVER beaten in a one on one environment. Can Eddie Guerrero finally overcome The Game??

Tazz: If he was ever gonna do it, this Sunday might be Eddies best chance. He’s overcome the mind games, now he has to overcome The Game in the ring.

Michael Cole: Chris Benoit has a chance to fulfil a lifelong dream, and reach the pinnacle of sports entertainment, and become the WWE Champion. In his way stands the dominant champion, the Olympic Gold Medallist, Kurt Angle.

Tazz: Hey, this Pay Per View couldn’t be more aptly named for these two men, because there is no doubt, when you pick Chris Benoit’s greatest adversary, you can argue its Chris Jericho, you can argue it’s Eddie Guerrero, but the majority will always say Kurt Angle. And when you talk about Angle’s biggest adversary, you can say Brock Lesnar, you can say Bill Goldberg, but the majority will say Benoit. This Sunday, this epic rivalry will be re-opened, and Cole, I cannot wait.

Michael Cole: And speaking of deeply personal rivalries, JBL defends the United States Title against Chris Jericho, in a Stretcher Match!!!

Tazz: And rightly so. Chris Jericho is hell bent on revenge, and right here, in a stretcher match is the perfect way to strike revenge. But one of those two men will be very disappointed after both have guaranteed a victory this Sunday.

Michael Cole: Fatal Four Way, one fall, for the WWE Tag team Championships this Sunday too, Tazz. America’s Most Wanted have won the titles twice in Four Way Matches, but at Nemesis, they might lose the titles in that same environment. The AFA, Basham Brothers and System Success will challenge for the gold, will new champions be crowned, or will AMW remain on top of the ladder??

Tazz: It could any way there Cole. Four way matches are the most unpredictable animal out there, it’d be a good call to pick a winner, that’s for sure.

Michael Cole: Folks, right now in Stamford, Jim Ross is with The Coach, and they are set to run down the Raw matches for this Sunday’s event, take it away…

Jim Ross: Thanks Michael, well, it’s a dual brand event once again this Sunday, and raw is certainly bringing it’s load. Starting right at the top, 6 Pack Elimination for the World Heavyweight Championship. Shawn Michaels will defend against some of his biggest adversaries in the form of The Undertaker, John Cena, Randy Orton, as well as Christian and Sting. 6 combustible elements, one World Championship.

The Coach: One title, five men that will come up just short. My money has to go on Captain Charisma himself, Christian. The guy has beaten The Undertaker twice in two months, and has been overlooked consistently. I’m a peep, and I’m happy to admit it.

Jim Ross: Shawn Michaels isn’t the only member of DX defending a title this Sunday Coach, as we learned this past Monday, that The DX Duo defend the tag titles in a match they cant walk out on, and cant disqualified in, a tables match, against the last ever ECW Tag Team Champions, Amish Roadkill, and Danny Doring.

The Coach: Someone will be getting wood J.R, and I just hope it’s one of those two idiots that goes through the table this Sunday. Cade and Jindrak needs those belts J.R, for the good of Raw!!!

Jim Ross: ECW Rules, with the Intercontinental Championship on the line. Rey Mysterio and Rob Van Dam will settle their differences once and for all. Will Mysterio finally shut RVD up?? Or will the Whole ‘You know what’ show takes the title from the champion??

The Coach: Lets face it J.R, Mysterio has had a great run as Intercontinental Champion, but when your time is up, it’s up. New champion coming on Sunday, mark my words.

Jim Ross: And the biggest of them all. No titles, just pure hatred, and I don’t know if hate is a strong enough word to describe the Mick Foley - Ric Flair situation. In Louisville this Sunday, Cactus Jack takes Ric Flair to his world, in a streetfight.

The Coach: It wont be for the weak of heart J.R, that’s for sure. I was a little worried for The Nature Boy after Mick Foleys video this Monday, but Ric Flairs reaction told me that either he doesn’t fear Cactus Jack, or he is one hell of an actor.

Jim Ross: Well, from us here at WWE headquarters, we’ll hand it back over to you guys on Smackdown, and see you this Sunday.

Michael Cole: Well ladies and gentlemen, let me remind you, that this Sunday, the WWE presents Nemesis, which will be a three and a half hour event, at the cost of a regular three hour Pay Per View, for one month only. How can you miss this show?? Especially, when you have Steve Austin, teaming with The Rock, against the behemoth team of Goldberg and Brock Lesnar. A dream tag team match.

Tazz: It’s the Most Electrifying Team in WWE history, against the most dominant team in WWE history. I will not want to miss that one.
Michael Cole: And when we come back, The Rock and Stone Cold, will be sharing the ring, for what promises to be a classic, classic moment. Don’t go anywhere!!


**IF YA SMELLLLLL … What The Rock … Is Cookin!!!** The People’s Champion enters to a unreal reaction from the fans. He makes his way to the ring, slapping hands with fans, before taking a mic, and getting into the ring. He goes to each turnbuckle, getting a bigger reaction each time. Eventually he drops down off the last turnbuckle, and the music dies down.

The Rock: FINALLY ……… The Rock, HASSSSS come back, to Dayton, Ohiiiio!!!

Crowd pops

The Rock: And finally, The Rock has found himself an ally, the man everyone wanted to come and team up with The Rock, and form the MOST electrifying team in sports entertainment history!!!

Crowd pops

The Rock: And tonight, three days from the biggest tag team match in HISTORY, Dayton, The Rock has a gift for you. Saying as The Rock and Stone Cold weren’t invited to Homecoming on Raw, The Rock right now is holding his own homecoming. Here, on The Rocks show, Smack-Down, he brings to you, the Worlds Toughest Son of a Bitch, the Texas Rattlesnake himself … give it up, for Stone Cold, Steve Austin!!!

Crowd blows the roof off, as … **GLASS SHATTERS** Stone Cold enters the arena, to a magnificent ovation. The Rattlesnake walks down the aisle, and climbs up the ring steps, into the ring, climbing to each turnbuckle, saluting the fans.

The music dies down, and Austin is handed a mic.

The Rock: Stone Cold, before we get started, let me just say, from the bottom of The Rocks heart, thank you.

Crowd pops

The Rock: Because, The Rock knows how big of a decision I forced you to make, and without going into the details, I’m glad, and honoured you chose to accept my offer.

Crowd Pops

Steve Austin: Well Rock, fact of the matter is this. I made a rash decision a few weeks back, and it’s a decision I’ve been regretting ever since I did. You can still watch Smackdown on television, but you cant feel that adrenaline like you do in front of the audience, in places like Dayton, Ohio.

Crowd Pops

Steve Austin: And after a few weeks mulling it over, once you made the offer for me to come back Rock, I just couldn’t say no. I heard the fans calling for it, and hell, Stone Cold wants the fans to get what they want.

Crowd Pops

Steve Austin: And y’know, after a few weeks drinking beer, drinking whisky, drinking anything with alcohol, Stone Cold Steve Austin has recharged his broken down batteries. So if you want Stone Cold to stick around, gimme a hell yeah!!


Steve Austin: So Rock, let me take this moment to tell you that you can thank me all you want, but if you ask me, I think Stone Cold should be thanking you, for giving me the kick up the ass that I god damn well needed, and that’s all I gotta say about that.

Crowd Cheers, and breaks off into a ‘Rocky’ chant.

Steve Austin: And for me to thank you, I’ve gotta do it with more than just words … lets have a dam beer!!!

Crowd Pops. Austin walks toward the corner of the ring for beers, but Rock grabs his arm stopping him. The crowd isn’t sure what to think.

The Rock: Whoa. Steve. As much, as The Rock would love a beer, he thinks first and foremost, that you and I need to give these fans a treat … and … sing a song!!!

Crowd Pops

Steve Austin: You wanna sing a song with Stone Cold??

Crowd Pops

Steve Austin: Does Dayton, Ohio want to hear Austin and The Rock sing a-long??

Crowd Pops

The Rock: I think they do Steve.

Crowd pops. Austin walks around the ring, trying to hide a smile, before speaking again.

Steve Austin: I’ve got a great song. Off one of the most recognizable television shows ever. Anyone here ever heard of Cheers??

Crowd Pops

The Rock: Trust you. Trust you Austin, you sing a song about a bar.

Crowd Pops

The Rock: You ready??

Steve Austin: What??


Rock raises his eyebrow in Austins direction, as Austin starts to laugh out loud.

The Rock: Is Dayton ready??

Crowd Pops

The Rock & Steve Austin: Dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum. Dum, dum, dum, dum, dum, dum …

Steve Austin: (Singing badly) Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got …

The Rock: Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot …

Steve Austin: Wouldn't you like to get away ……

The Rock & Steve Austin: Sometimes you want to go, where everybody knows your name …

The Rock: And The Rock is glad you came …

Steve Austin: You wanna be where you can see …

The Rock: Our troubles are all the same …

Steve Austin: You wanna be where everybody knows your name …

The Rock: You wanna go where people know, people are all the same …

Steve Austin: You wanna go where everybody knows Stone Colds name …

The Rock: You want to go where people know, people are all the same …

Steve Austin: You want to go where everybody knows your name …

The fans pop for the song, as Rock and Austin smile, pointing at one another.

The Rock: Now, The Rock guaran -damn - tees you wont see anything like that on American Idol!!!

Fans pop, and laugh a little.

The Rock: And The Rock guaran - damn - tees that this Sunday, Steve, you and I are gonna beat Brock Lesnar and Goldbergs monkey asses straight down Know Your Role Boulevard … and take a left up Jabroni Drive…

Steve Austin: Then stop for some beer…

The Rock: Check right into the Smack-Down hotel…

Steve Austin: Room 3:16…

The Rock: Give these two sons of bitches some special room service…

Steve Austin: Give ‘em beer!!

The Rock: Give them pie!!!

Steve Austin: Some more beer!!!

The Rock: Some … ssssssstrudel!!

Steve Austin: Some more pie!!

The Rock: Squash it all together, turn that sum bitch sideways, AND STICK IT STRAIGHT UP THEIR CANDYASSES!!!


Crowd Pops, whilst Rock looks at Austin, surprised, before smiling.

The Rock: And that’s the bottom line, cause The Rock said so!!!

Crowd Pops again, with Austin now gives Rock the eyebrow.

Steve Austin: Rock?? Lets sing another song!!!

Crowd Pops. Rock shrugs his shoulders, and nods, before Austin speaks again.

Steve Austin: Y’all have heard of Glen Campbell, ‘Like A Rhinestone Cowboy’??

Crowd replies with a pretty clear ‘Yes’

Steve Austin: You know it too right, Rock??

The Rock: Hell yeah The Rock has heard of Glen Campbell.

Steve Austin: That’s terrific. Okay, first verse, and the chorus, I’m gonna add my own spin to this too, and feel free to join in, and ad lib a little too. Here we go… (Austin clears his throat)

Rock and Austin start clicking their fingers before Austin starts…

Steve Austin: I've been kickin ass in the ring so long,

The Rock: Joinin’ Rock for a singalong,

Steve Austin: I know every jackass that tries to cross Steve Austin……

The Rock: Layin’ the smack down’s the name of the game

Steve Austin: Goldberg and Lesnar get washed away like the snow and the rain

The Rock: There's been enough of compromisin'

Steve Austin: On the road to our horizon

The Rock: But we’re gonna be where lights are shinin' on you and me

Together: Like a rhinestone cowboy…

Steve Austin: Riding out on a pick up truck in a rodeo…

The Rock: Like a rhinestone cowboy…

Steve Austin: Giving stunners and taking beer from people I don't even know…

The Rock: And droppin a People‘s Elbow…

The fans give the two men appreciation, as Rock and Austin hold each others arms up, sharing a joke before …

**Extreme** Paul Heyman enters the stage, with a mic in hand, ready to speak.

Paul Heyman: Well, isn’t this cosy. An evening with The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin. It’s just quite fitting you two are singing such ancient songs, considering, you’ll be ancient history, after Brock Lesnar and Goldberg are finished with you two glory hogs, this Sunday.

Crowd gives heat.

Paul Heyman: And that guys, isn’t a thr-

Steve Austin: What??


Paul Heyman: Don-

Steve Austin: What??


Paul Heyman: I wi-

Steve Austin: Look at ya!!! You got that crappy little cap to hide your bald spot, yet you keep that silly little pony tail?? You got a 20 cent jacket, which I cant tell if it’s leather, or a bin bag.

The Rock: Definitely a bin bag, Steve.

Steve Austin: Your little pot belly, yellow teeth, chubby legs, stubby fingers, you make me want to puke!!


Steve Austin: I wanna be sick!!!


Steve Austin: But instead, I’ll have a beer!!!


Steve Austin: Actually … I’ve got a better idea.

Austin starts whispering into Rocks ear, and Rock starts to laugh, before Austin pulls away and speaks again.

Steve Austin: I wanna sing another song … and this one, is dedicated to none other that Paul Heyman.

Crowd gives heat.

The Rock: Now, now. Please, The Rock and Stone Cold promise you, The People that you’ll enjoy this one, EVEN more than the other two.

Austin clears his throat, before whistling into the mic, the tune of ’Singing in the Rain’

Steve Austin: He’s singing in the rain

The Rock: Just singing in the rain…

Steve Austin: What a terrible feelin'

The Rock: Cant afford an um-brella again…

(Paul Heyman starts trying to put them off, but neither Rock or Austin take notice and continue)

Steve Austin: He’s crying at clouds

The Rock: So dark up above…

Steve Austin: His last cheque bounced

The Rock: And he’s ready to cry…

Steve Austin: Let the stormy clouds chase

The Rock: Everyone from the place…

Steve Austin: Please stop with the rain

The Rock: He has a frown on his face…

Steve Austin: He walks down the lane

The Rock: With an unhappy refrain…

Steve Austin: Just singin',

The Rock: Singin' in the rain

Rock and Austin laugh, as Heyman gets frustrated at the top of the ramp.

The Rock: Hey, Paul Heyman, The Rock says this … pootang your ass on outta here. Go on, get your fat monkey ass outta the peoples arena, and take the two vanilla gorilla’s with ya.

Heyman looks up at the ring, and his anger turns to a smile, with his eyes lighting up. … We suddenly see Goldberg and Lesnar slide in, after coming through the crowd, and they attack Austin and Rock.

The two bigger men stomp their enemies in the corner, going to work on them, three days before the PPV, before Lesnar picks Austin up, as does Goldberg with Rock, only for Rock and Austin to fight back!!!

Rock ducks a clothesline from Goldberg before hitting the Rock Bottom, before he and Austin beat at Brock Lesnar, eventually knocking him down with a double reverse elbow.

Goldberg now is getting back to his feet, but Austin meets him, and scores with a Stunner!!! Lesnar also getting to his feet, but Austin and Rock team up, and clothesline Brock over the top to the floor.

With Goldberg all alone, Rock and Austin signal to the fans for a double Peoples Elbow!!! To the delight of the fans, and the horror of Heyman and Lesnar, SCSA and Rock connect, to a massive pop from the fans.

Lesnar and Heyman drag Goldberg out of the ring, and high tail up the ramp, whilst Austin and Rock call for a beer to celebrate.

Goldberg is helped to the top of the ramp, as The trio watch Austin and Rock toast a beer in the ring, as the show goes off the air…
