Yep, long time I know. A few of you know why I've been away for so long, and I'm getting back to normal now. Anyways. . .


”WWE Superstars” Results
Saturday 5th July 2008
Resch Center, Green Bay, Wisconsin





Match #1
Tommy Dreamer vs. Chris Masters (w/Charlie Haas)

The frustrated Masterpiece took the match to Dreamer from the off, but his aggression nearly got the better of him when he allowed Dreamer some recovery time while the referee warned him for using an open fist in the corner. Dreamer fought back and fired him out of the corner before taking charge of the match. That all changed as Masters blocked a suplex attempt and hit one of his own. With momentum back on his side, Masters then showed off his strength by hitting a delayed vertical suplex and later wrapped up the victory with the Masterlock.

Winner: Chris Masters.


{Commercial Break}


Edge was in the locker room with Petey Williams & Johnny Devine. He told them that he would be out there supporting them against Christian and the so called problem solver later on, and went on to call Tomko a weak link, not a problem solver. He told them to work on him and that he’d take care of his brother, and if everything went to plan, they’d embarrass the hell out of Christian and enjoy every last second of it.


Back in the arena, MVP made his way to the ring and told everyone that like he said on Smackdown the night before, he came to Superstars to call out the two guys who jumped him on Smackdown eight days ago. He said that he wasn’t going anywhere until they showed their faces, and The Empire (Drew McIntyre & Stu Sanders) with Katie Lee swiftly and confidently went to the ring. Katie Lee took the lead and said that if answers were what MVP wanted, then they were only too happy to oblige. She said that The Empire came to the WWE and the United States for a reason, the same reason that MVP became the first victim in their mission. MVP was both angry and confused, then asked what the hell she was talking about a mission for. She said that thanks to the culture and behaviour of a large number of Americans including MVP, the culture that she and The Empire grew up in back home has changed, all because of the American influence.

She blamed gang culture for ruining the lives of children and families in the UK, making it acceptable for young children to carry knives and even use them one another. She also said that the youth of today don’t even flinch when news breaks about other children being killed, all because it’s an every day occurrence and generally accepted in America. The crowd were booing loudly as Sanders & McIntyre stood behind her, nodding at the baffled MVP. She went on to say that the hideous rap music they see and hear, as well as the ‘musicians’ if she could call them that were directly influencing the moral behaviour of millions of children in the UK and that enough is enough. She said that they had to make a stand and kill this culture as soon as possible, and that MVP falls in to the bracket of a bad influence for children everywhere, but for some reason, he is seen as a role model despite his previous misdoings. MVP cut in and asked Katie if she was actually blaming him for the gang culture, and said that she was crazy if she was.

McIntyre stepped in front of her and took the microphone away from her. He told MVP that the threatening behaviour he was showing towards a woman is exactly the sort of act the Americans have deemed acceptable and passed on to every other nation. He then said that he & Sanders weren’t going to allow it to continue any longer, and if MVP had a problem with that, he was going to be in a world of trouble. MVP asked him if that was right and turned to the crowd with a big smile on his face, and as he turned back, he drilled McIntyre with a right hand that sent him to the mat. Sanders went right after MVP, but Porter stood his ground until they were then able to double team him with McIntyre laying him out courtesy of a reverse STO. Katie then told them to pull him up, and they did with Katie then slapping him across the face. The Empire then tossed him back down to the mat to a ton of heat before smiling at each other and leaving the ring to a barrage of boos from the angry crowd.

Match #2
John Morrison vs. Carlito (w/Eddie Colon & Eric Perez)

This was a really quick paced match that saw the crowd get in to it and support Morrison. The Shaman of Sexy was able to dodge a springboard elbow smash from Carlito and nail him straight after with a springboard enziguri, but could only manage a two count. As the match went on, the pace picked up further and as he looked to finish Carlito off, he knocked the panicked Eddie Colon off the apron with a super kick. Carlito then tried to take advantage by walking up behind Morrison for the Back Stabber, but Morrison spun to safety and took the match with the Moonlight Drive to a strong reception from the fans. He left the ring straight away as Perez tried to get at him. The ref joined JoMo on the outside to raise his arm, but The Miz ran down the aisle from behind him and knocked him to the floor. With the crowd booing, Miz then pulled his former partner up and tossed him in to the guard rail before stomping all over him until more officials came down and broke things up. He then backed away with a rare sadistic look on his face as the fans let rip at him.

Winner: John Morrison.

>Smackdown Rewind<

>Christian, Edge & Chris Jericho all talking up their chances in the Scramble match come The Great American Bash, also stating how the odds are against CM Punk retaining, setting up Punk’s arrival and claims that he will retain the World Championship before The Undertaker arrived on the scene and chokeslammed him in the middle of the ring with everyone else leaving him to it.
>Tazz walking out to the stage directly afterwards and announcing that next week on Smackdown, the four contenders for the title will meet in a tag team match that will see Christian join forces with The Undertaker to take on Edge & Jericho in addition to Punk being the special guest referee.



Match #3
Christian & Tyson Tomko vs. Petey Williams & Johnny Devine (w/Edge)

Petey & Devine hung on in against their bigger opponents, and Petey looked impressive and incredibly athletic, catching Tomko at one point with a thunderous leg lariat. That led to both men making tags, and Christian took it right to Devine. He was on the verge of victory when Edge climbed up to the apron. Christian didn’t see him as he was focused on Devine struggling to his feet, but the crowd’s reaction led to him turning to see Edge standing there. He walked over and yelled at his brother, but Devine got back up and ran at him. Captain Charisma quickly turned round and stepped to the side as Devine ran right in to Edge, knocking Edge down to the floor. Devine then turned round and walked in to a Killswitch with Tomko then taking care of Petey’s attempts to save his partner, allowing Christian the chance to cover Devine and pick up the win. Christian took great pleasure in seeing Edge’s angry reaction as he sat up on the outside.

Winners: Christian & Tyson Tomko.

RAW PreviewMonday 7th July 2008
Live From the Lawlor Events Center
Reno, Nevada





>The Games Have Just Begun!<

If Vengeance wasn’t chaotic enough, Raw continued in the same manner! We saw the new WWE Champion, Batista defeat Kane once again to this time retain the title and send The Big Red Machine out of the WWE for good. However, the thrills & spills didn’t end there. Earlier in the evening, Triple H apologised to both Batista & Ric Flair before then turning on them and turning his back on Evolution. The Game showed no remorse in introducing the WWE title belt to Batista’s face and answering Flair’s protests with a pedigree. It would be fair to say that there could be trouble in Reno when these three walk through the door to the Lawlor Events Center.

The McMahon’s returned to Raw with one hell of a bang last Monday night, and Vladimir Kozlov can testify to that. Vince & Shane made it clear to everyone that they don’t tolerate failure like The Corporation tasted at Vengeance, and they firmly put the blame in the hands of Kozlov. JBL & The Big Show were then instructed to show Kozlov that standards mean a lot to the McMahons with Vince himself striking the final blow. With The Chairman of the Board back at the helm of The Corporation, business might just have picked up. He may have succeeded in removing Kozlov from his position in The Corporation, although he didn’t see Eric Bischoff removed from his as Raw’s Head of Authority like he intended. Will that dampen Mr. McMahon’s spirits?

Bischoff has never been the most popular individual in the WWE, and it wasn’t just The McMahon’s who were breathing down his neck last week. Randy Orton was adamant that he was owed another rematch for the WWE Championship. He didn’t get it but made a statement that Bischoff is sure to have received loud and clear. The Legend Killer almost cost Batista the WWE title last week when he came out of nowhere to RKO The Animal during his match to Kane. Luckily that wasn’t the case, but it appears as if Orton isn’t going to give up his pursuit to reclaim the title he claims he never lost.

Orton wasn’t the only one on a mission last week as Ted DiBiase Jr seems to be feeling the stress of having his father, the WWE Hall of Famer, The Million Dollar Man trying to teach some respect. The boy wonder’s left his father with no doubt that he wants to do things his own way, and he even slapped the WWE legend across the face. That was moments after he attacked Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler when it appeared that The King took a shine to DiBiase’s girlfriend, Maryse. He hit Lawler in the face, leaving the color commentator requiring attention from the EMT’s. We’ve since learnt that he’s having difficulties with his vision thanks to an injury to his eye, and that he won’t be on Raw this week. Will DiBiase be forced to learn some respect this week? He certainly needs it.

Kofi Kingston came through a demanding Steel Cage match a week ago at Vengeance, and after taking a week off to recover from the hellacious match, he’ll be back live on Raw this week. As will be the man who failed to capture the title that night, Cody Rhodes. There’s undoubtedly going to be a contrast of emotions between those two this week.

Our new World Tag Team Champions, Cryme Time followed up their huge title victory at Vengeance by successfully defending the gold against John Morrison & The Miz last Monday night. The Brooklyn duo looked mighty impressive yet again, and their success left the former champions with much to ponder at the bell. The Miz was furious and took out his frustrations on Morrison, even going as far as to push & shout at his partner. However he didn’t bank on being on the receiving end of a fierce right hand from The Shaman of Sexy. The crowd enjoyed that as well as Morrison’s performance & victory over Carlito on Superstars this past Saturday night. Just as Morrison was celebrating after a rough week, The Miz crashed the party and jumped him after the impressive outing. Will Morrison react as strongly as The Miz this Monday in Reno? Tune in to find out.

Melina found out that life as the new Women’s Champion wasn’t exactly going to be a bed of roses last week when Natalya Neidhart sent her a strong & personal message that she hasn’t taken her eyes off the title either. It’s easy to see that Neidhart is gunning for Melina & her title. Will that continue this week?

While several Raw superstars were released from their contracts last week, one of Smackdown’s most popular jumped ship to fill the void left behind on Monday nights. Matt Hardy surprised everyone when he showed up last week and answered Brian Kendrick’s challenge. He defeated Kendrick comfortably to get his Raw career off & running? Will he be able to carry that on this week?

Default Re: WWE: A Strong Response

Nice to see you back Nige. After just trying to remember some of the main storylines on RAW I am going to be extremely interested in the HHH/Batista/Orton? storyline. I feel that you should get the Triple Threat out of the way with possibly Orton nicking the title so that leaves one free spot open so Orton can feud with someone new and HHH/Batista can have an extremely personal feud without distractions.

Again, welcome back.

{Cut Inside the Arena}


***PYRO***
***PYRO***
***PYRO***



Eric Bischoff is standing in the middle of the ring and it seems as if the Head of Authority means business.

Eric Bischoff:
Last week, I think it was fair t’ say there were several instances of things getting way out of hand, and one of those has resulted in Raw losing a member of its announce team. . . In what appeared t’ be a seemingly unprovoked attack by one of my younger employees, Jerry “The King” Lawler suffered an injury to his eye that has led t’ him having vision difficulties, meaning he won’t be able t’ join JR and call the show for a while. . . Fortunately there was someone here last week who I’ve known for quite a long time that when we were talkin’ about what happened, he told me he would be more than willing t’ fill in for The King for as long as I need. . . So when I heard later on in the week that King would be out of action for a while, I called my man to offer him the chance t’ take over and join JR once again. . . That’s right, I did say ‘again’. That’s where things take an ironic turn folks, because the man responsible for the attack on The King was Ted DiBiase Junior, and the man who’s stepping in t’ fill the void is none other than his father. . . ‘The Million Dollar Man’ Ted DiBiase.

*Big Pop*

“It’s All About The Money” hits & The Million Dollar Man walks out to the stage with a big smile on his face and acknowledges the fans by holding his hand up. He then walks down the ramp and to the announce table, where JR stands up and claps, then greets his new partner with a handshake.

JR:
It’s great t’ have y’here.

The Million Dollar Man: What can I say JR? It’s great t’ be here.


As DiBiase gets settled and puts his headset on, the camera goes back to Bischoff in the ring.

Eric Bischoff:
Like I said before, things got way out of hand last week, and I’m putting everyone in the back on notice that I WILL NOT TOLERATE ANYTHING LIKE THE ACTIONS THAT TOOK. . .

“The Game” blasts out to a ton of heat from the crowd as a very intense Triple H walks in to the arena. Wearing jeans, a T-shirt and a leather jacket, The Game walks down to the ring with Bischoff not looking very happy at all to see him as Triple H then collects a microphone.

Triple H:
Eric, if you think anybody is gonna take any notice of what you just said, you are very much mistaken. . . However, if you do the right thing and do as I say, all of a sudden life might become that little bit easier for ya. . . See all I have one is very simple request. Well it’s more of a demand. . . I want Batista, and I want him right here t’night.

*Big Pop*

Eric Bischoff: You want Batista in this ring t’night? Why didn’t you say? I mean it all sounds so simple. I even think it’s safe t’ say he’d have no problem with that, and I’m sure as hell all these people came here hoping to see just that, but the fact of the matter is it’s not going to happen.

*Major Heat*

Triple H: Eric, I don’t think you understand. I’m not asking you, I’m telling you. I can. . .

Eric Bischoff: . . . NO! YOU’RE GONNA HEAR ME OUT. . . Do you not remember what you did last week? I mean after you turned your back on your friend and mentor. These people might not be aware of it, but you did something totally unacceptable and crossed that fine line in this business that you just do not cross. . . For those of you who aren’t aware of what went down after the show went off the air last Monday, let me bring you up t’ speed.

He directs everyone’s attention to the tron, and we see the end to last week’s show where Triple H smashed Batista with his own world title belt before hitting Flair with a pedigree. Then in footage we didn’t see last week, the referee (Micky Henson) went over to check on Flair and then asked The Game what he was doing. Triple H took offence to it and drove him in to the mat with a pedigree too. The shot then goes back to Bischoff & Triple H in the ring with the fans booing.

Eric Bischoff:
See Hun’er, turning on your friends and telling the world that you’re a selfish, two-faced individual at the same time isn’t something that I can punish you for, but when you put your hands on a referee, one of my referees, you made a very costly mistake. That’s the reason why you won’t be facing Batista t’night or any other night in the near future, because as of right now you’re suspended indefinitely.

*Big Pop*

Eric Bischoff: Now before you try and take out your frustration on me, I advise you to be very careful, because if you so much as lay a hand on me, I’ll fire you like that.

*Pop*

Triple H is furious and stares a hole right through Bischoff.

Eric Bischoff:
Now if you don’t mind, I’d like t’ have some security officers come down here and escort this man off my show.

A group of six security workers walk down the ramp and in to the ring, and then grab hold of The Game.

Triple H:
Get your hands of me, I can leave by myself. But Bischoff, rest assured you’re gonna be very, very sorry. Mark my words.

Eric Bischoff: Get him out o’ here.

Triple H turns round and drops the microphone before walking over to the ropes and leaving the ring of his own accord, followed closely by security.

Eric Bischoff:
Let that be a lesson to every single one of you in the back. NO ONE PUSHES ERIC BISCHOFF AROUND AND GETS AWAY WITH IT. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT, THEN THAT’S TOUGH SHIT BECAUSE THIS IS MY SHOW AND WHAT I SAY GOES. Trust me, I’ve got no problem in dealing with anyone in the exact same manner as I did Triple H. IF YOU WANNA SCREW AROUND WITH ERIC BISCHOFF, ON YOUR HEAD BE IT.

“I’m Back” hits to a mixed reception as Bischoff drops the microphone and leaves the ring looking very serious indeed.


{Commercial Break}


Triple H is shown being escorted in to the parking lot and to his car by security.

Triple H:
You’ve done your job now get lost.

He opens his car door and they back away, but as Triple H turns his head, he looks surprised. The camera pans to the right to show a pissed Ric Flair storming towards him with a calmer Batista following behind.

Ric Flair:
YOU NO GOOD SON OF A BITCH!

Security quickly block Flair off, but he tries to get past them.

Ric Flair:
WHY’D YOU DO IT HUH? COME ON, DON’T HIDE BEHIND THEM YOU COWARD.

Triple H stares right at Flair, who is still being held back by security with Batista standing behind him.

Batista:
Forget it Ric, he’s not worth it.

Flair backs down, as do security.

Ric Flair:
You’re right Dave. I don’t know what I was thinkin’. He’s nothin’.

Flair turns round and starts to walk away, but Batista walks towards The Game with Security keeping them at a distance.

Batista:
If y’know what’s good for you Hun’er, you’ll stay the hell away from me an’ Ric. If y’don’t, we won’t be responsible for our actions.

The Animal & The Game glare right at each other for a couple of seconds before the WWE Champion turns round and walks towards the building with Flair. The camera goes back to Triple H, and he has eyes locked on his former Evolution team mates.


{Cut to Ringside}


*The Opening Match*

Melina & Kelly Kelly vs Natalya Neidhart & Jillian Hall

Natalya spent most of the match working over Kelly until Kelly drove her elbow in to Neidhart’s face and sent her staggering out of the corner. She then followed Natalya out and nailed her with a roundhouse kick. It took her a while before she could take advantage and make a cover, and by that time Natalya was able to kick out at two. Both divas then tagged in their respective partners with Melina then taking it to Jillian, and the Women’s Champion finished her off the Extreme Makeover, a spinning facebuster having sent Natalya to the outside by pulling down the top rope as she charged towards her. JR said in commentary that Melina has found several different ways to finish her opponents in the last week or so. As she & Kelly celebrated and then left the ring, Natalya slipped back inside and didn’t look happy at all. Melina & Kelly had turned to face the ring as they posed for the fans, and they saw Neidhart staring angrily at them as Jillian slowly came round. Natalya turned to the side and saw Jillian moving. She saw red and dragged her up to her feet before sending her right back down courtesy of a gut-wrench powerbomb. The sadistic Natalya stared down at Jillian for several seconds before turning her attention back to Melina & Kelly, who didn’t know what to make of it.

Winners: Melina & Kelly Kelly by pinfall @ 5.10.


{Cut Backstage}


Leticia Cline is standing by.

Leticia Cline:
Please welcome my guest at this time, the newest addition to the Raw roster. . . Matt Hardy.

The camera zooms out and reveals a happy looking Matt Hardy standing alongside Leticia. Some cheers can be heard coming through from the arena.

Leticia Cline:
Matt, you surprised a lot of people last week when you turned up here on Raw. How is it that you’re back on Raw?

Matt Hardy: It’s pretty simple see ‘Ticia. My contract on Smackdown ran out a couple o’ weeks back. Tazz asked me t’ sign a new one, but I made a call t’ Eric Bischoff just t’ see if there was a chance t’ come back t’ Mond’y Night Raw, the ‘A’ show, the place everyone in the WWE wants t’ be, an’ here I am, back on Mond’y nights, home of the greatest fans in the world.

Leticia Cline: Well you got off to quite a start by beating Brian Kendrick in your first match, and later on t’night you’ll be in tag team action against him and The Miz. What are your thoughts on that?

Matt Hardy: It’s the same as last week. I’m excited. I got off to a great start last Mond’y, an’ I plan on that continuing right here t’night an’ for as long as I possibly can.

Leticia Cline: Well good luck Matt and welcome back to Raw.

Matt Hardy: Thanks ‘Ticia. You’re welcome.

We can hear more cheers from the arena as Matt then walks out of the shot, leaving the smiling Leticia behind.


{Commercial Break}


Eric Bischoff is walking along the corridor and as he’s about to turn a corner, he hears shouting and stops. There’s no one there but it appears as if a door is being lodged open, and we then see Vince & Shane McMahon walk out of it and turn back. They don’t appear to be in the best of moods, and the curious Bischoff steps back to try and find out what’s going on without being seen.

Vince McMahon:
You better not let us down this time. Once you’re done, you call me right away y’hear. . . Come on Shane.

They then set off in Bischoff’s direction, and the Head of Authority walks towards them. They look incredibly suspicious and stunned to see him while Bischoff puts on an act like he hadn’t seen them.

Eric Bischoff:
Is there anything I can help you with gentleman?

Vince turns to Shane, not sure of what to say.

Shane McMahon:
We’ve got everything under control thanks.

Eric Bischoff: Good, I’m glad. Have a good ev’ning.

Bischoff smiles at them and walks up the hall with Vince turning to Shane.

Vince McMahon:
You think he heard any of that?

Shane McMahon: It didn’t seem that way. I think we’re good.

Vince McMahon: Good.

They then turn the corner, but Bischoff stops and turns round to see they’ve gone. He drops the act and then walks in to the room they just left, and it’s his office. William Regal is there and is surprised to see him.

William Regal:
Oh, Mister Bischoff. . .

Eric Bischoff: Hey, have you seen the McMahon’s t’night by any chance?

William Regal: No, should I have?

Eric Bischoff: You tell me. It’s just I swear I just saw them leaving here a couple of minutes ago.

Regal is very panicked and doesn’t know what to say.

William Regal:
Oh yes, that’s right, silly me. They did stop by as it happens. They wanted. . .

Eric Bischoff: . . . Alright, it’s time t’ drop the act Regal, I heard what Vince said. . . Y’know what, I don’t know why I didn’t see it sooner. You, you went t’ Linda behind my back last week t’ get me fired didn’t you, because you’re working with Vince?

William Regal: . . . No, abs. . .

Eric Bischoff: . . . It all makes sense now thinkin’ about it. It’s pretty clever y’know, you conspiring with the McMahon’s all this time. It’s just not clever enough.

William Regal: Look Eric, I’m so sorry. I had no choice in the matter. They. . .

Eric Bischoff: . . . I DON’T WANNA HEAR IT REGAL. GET YOUR STUFF AN’ GET THE HELL OUT OF MY OFFICE. . . AS YOUR GOOD FRIEND VINCE WOULD SAY. . . YOU’RE FIRED!

Regal doesn’t know what to say and just walks out of the office, but as he does so, Ted DiBiase Jr & Maryse walk right in. The boy wonder doesn’t look happy at all, but neither does Bischoff.

Ted DiBiase Jr:
HEY BISCHOFF. WHAT Y’DOIN’ HUH, GIVIN’ MY DAD A JOB? WHAT THE HELL Y’THINKIN’?

Eric Bischoff: WELL IN CASE YOU HADN’T NOTICED. FIRST OFF, THIS IS MY OFFICE THAT YOU’VE JUST BARGED YOUR WAY IN TO. AND TWO, I’M AN ANNOUNCER DOWN THANKS T’ SOMEONE. SO BEFORE YOU START SHOUTIN’ YOUR MOUTH OFF AT ME, MAYBE YOU SHOULD TAKE LOOK AT YOURSELF.

Ted DiBiase Jr: HEY, LAWLER GOT WHAT HE DESERVED FOR PERVIN’ ON MARYSE. MY DAD’S TRYIN’ T’ CAUSE ME TROUBLE, AND WHAT DO YOU DO? GIVE HIM A JOB AND THE CHANCE TO RUN ME DOWN EVERY WEEK.

Eric Bischoff: I GAVE HIM A JOB BECAUSE THIS IS MY SHOW AND I CALL THE SHOTS. IF YOU HADN’T HAVE ATTACKED LAWLER, THIS WOULDN’T BE AN ISSUE.

Ted DiBiase Jr: Y’THINK I CARE ABOUT LAWLER? ALL I CARE ABOUT IS MY JEALOUS FATHER RUNNIN’ HIS MOUTH. . .

Eric Bischoff: . . . Y’KNOW, Y'SHOULD CARE ABOUT WHAT YOU DID T’ LAWLER. YOUR FATHER’S RIGHT WHEN HE CALLED YOU A SELFISH SON OF A BITCH ‘CAUSE THAT’S EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE. IF Y'WANT SOMEONE T’ BLAME, LOOK NO FURTHER. YOU’RE THE REASON LAWLER’S OUT. YOU’RE THE REASON YOU GOT A MASSIVE FINE, AND YOU’RE THE REASON YOU’RE DAD’S HERE. IF YOU CAN’T DEAL WITH THAT THEN THAT’S YOUR PROBLEM. AND IF THAT’S ALL, YOU CAN JOIN REGAL IN GETTIN’ THE HELL OUT O’ MY FACE AND OUT O’ MY OFFICE.

DiBiase stares angrily at his boss, and Bischoff does the same with Maryse shaking her head as she stands alongside DiBiase. The youngster then turns round and storms out, followed by Maryse with Bischoff still seething.


{Cut to Ringside}


*Match #2*

Rey Mysterio vs Lance Cade

Cade took the match to Rey in the early going, but the Master of the 619 came right back in to it. After being whipped in to the ropes, Rey responded by sliding through Cade’s legs and running through in to the opposite side where he then hit a springboard cross body for a two count with Cade powering out. As both men raced back up, Rey was the first to react with tilt-a-whirl head scissors. Cade got up in a spin and walked right in to a drop toe hold that sent him on to the middle rope. Mysterio then dialled up and connected with the 619, sending Cade back and down to the mat, allowing Rey to drop the dime and pick up an impressive victory.

Winner: Rey Mysterio by pinfall @ 5.07.


{Commercial Break}


“La Vittoria é Mia” is playing as Santino Marella stands in the middle of the ring, dressed in his ring gear with a microphone in hand.

Santino Marella:
T’night, I, Santino Marella have the opportunities to-a become the Intercontinental Champion of all the worlds one more times. I have all-a my fans back home in the greatest country of them all, Italy supporting me as I challenge the-a man who successfully defended the title at Vengeance in a metal cage match. . . Kofi Kingstones.

*Pop*

Santino Marella: But let me-a tell you people that Kofi Kingstones will-a not beat me t’night as I will-a be taking my title back home to my-a beautiful Italy. . .

“S.O.S” blasts out to a big pop as Kofi Kingston walks down to the ring minus Kelly Kelly, who must still be changing from her match earlier on. The Intercontinental Champion is all smiles as he walks down the ramp and slaps hands with the fans while Marella looks put out that Kofi cut him off.


*Match #3*

WWE Intercontinental Championship
Kofi Kingston (c) vs Santino Marella

Throughout commentary, DiBiase praised Kofi and his attitude, calling him a champion to be proud of. The Jamaican Sensation looked better for the week off after his Steel Cage match at Vengeance, and despite some cheap tactics from Marella, Kofi rolled to safety as the Italian looked to connect with a diving headbutt. Kofi was the first one back up and whipped Santino in to the corner, then ran in and leapt up to the second rope before pummelling him with right hands. He stepped down and monkey flipped the challenger out of the corner. The Intercontinental Champion then watched on as Santino struggled back up, and as the Italian turned round to face him, Kingston exploded with the Trouble In Paradise to retain his title. As Kofi was presented with his belt by the referee at the end, DiBiase stood up and applauded from the announce table, telling JR that’s what a champion should be. His son, Ted Jr was watching on a monitor in the back with Maryse. He wasn’t happy at all and threw the monitor to the ground, smashing it completely before storming off and saying that he could kill Bischoff.

Winner: By pinfall, and still the WWE Intercontinental Champion, Kofi Kingston @ 4.34.


{Cut Backstage}


Eric Bischoff puts his cell phone back on his desk and still appears to be stressed as he walks out of his office when a very serious looking Randy Orton walks up to him, almost bumping in to him.

Eric Bischoff:
Oh great, just what I need. What the hell do you want? . . . Y’know what, let me guess. You want to apologise for getting involved in the main event last week that you had absolutely no business in whatsoever. Am I right? . . . No, I didn’t think so. So what is it that’s so important Orton?

Randy Orton: Well Eric it’s very simple. I came to you last week to ask for the rematch I deserve at the WWE Championship, yet for some reason you flat out refused my perfectly reasonable request. As for my actions last week, it was my business t’ get involved. I should still be the WWE Champion and ev’ryone knows it. You could ask Mister Kennedy had I not kicked him out of the WWE for good. The fact is Eric, this isn’t gonna go away like Kennedy. I had hoped you’d wisely reconsidered your decision to refuse my demands, and I’d hate for someone else t’ get hurt.

Eric Bischoff: Am I supposed to be scared by that Randy? . . . Well I’m not. You don’t scare me one bit, and I have t’ tell you that I don’t take threats lightly. As far as your rematch goes. . . Like I said last week, you’ve had it. But y’know what, I am gonna do you a favour t’night. You wanna be in the ring with the WWE Champion so badly, you got it. T’night you’re gonna go one on one with Batista. But let me make it crystal clear for y’ Randy, the title won’t be one the line. Let’s just hope that shuts you up.

Randy Orton: Once I’ve beaten Batista, and I will, I’ll be back for the rematch I deserve and you can’t deny me that then, not unless. . .

Eric Bischoff: . . . Unless what? Y’know what, I don’t have t’ listen t’ this. Good luck later on. You might just need it.

Orton doesn’t look too happy as he looks in to Bischoff’s eyes, but as Orton then storms away, the GM then reaches in to his pocket for his cell phone.

Eric Bischoff:
DAMN-IT!

He realises he left it inside and shoves his way back inside, pushing the door wide open. He walks over to the desk and picks it up, but as he turns round, an angry Cody Rhodes walks in, pissing Bischoff off even more.

Eric Bischoff:
This night just continues t’ get better.

Cody Rhodes: What’s goin’ on Bischoff? How’s someone like Santino Marella gettin’ a shot at the Intercontinental title after what happened t’ me at Vengeance? Ev’ryone saw that Kelly screwed me over yet again. If anyone should be gettin’ a shot at Kofi, it’s me as we all know she’s the only reason I’m not the Intercontinental Champion right now.

Eric Bischoff: Cody let me make this real clear for you. Your match at Vengeance and the contract you signed had a special clause in it that you know all about. It stated that if you lost, and you did, you wouldn’t get another shot as long as Kofi was the champion. Now you don’t exactly have to be the smartest person t’ figure out that means you’re out of chances.

Cody Rhodes: You know that Kelly’s screwed me time and time again. You can change that by doing the right thing here for once Bischoff.

Eric Bischoff: Short of ripping up the contract altogether, there’s nothing I can or want t’ do. . .

Cody Rhodes: . . . THAT’S BULL BISCHOFF. YOU GAVE KANE A REMATCH LAST WEEK.

Eric Bischoff: KANE HAD A REMATCH CLAUSE IN HIS CONTRACT FOR GOD SAKE. DID YOU?

Cody Rhodes: No.

Eric Bischoff: WELL THERE YOU GO. YOU’RE OUT OF CHANCES AND OUT OF TIME. I’VE GOT MORE IMPORTANT THINGS T’ DEAL WITH. SEE Y’ROUND.

Bischoff shrugs past Cody and walks out of the room, really angering Cody.

***Video Promo***

Gregory Helms is shown being stretchered out of the ring after suffering the neck injury that has kept him sidelined since May 18th 2007.

Voiceover:
For over twelve months Gregory Helms has wondered if he would ever be able to step inside a wrestling ring again and do what he loves more than anything else in this world.

The camera then switches to a shot of Helms stood up in a gym.

Gregory Helms:
I broke two vertebrae in my neck and one of them was pressing right against my spinal cord. I’ve had some real bad injuries in my time but this was bad. I knew it the moment it happened. I knew my career was in jeopardy.

We then see him going in to surgery and being operated on.

Voiceover:
With his career up in the air, Helms underwent surgery a week later, administered by Doctor Lloyd Youngblood.

Doctor Lloyd Youngblood is then shown after the surgery.

Doctor Lloyd Youngblood:
The injury Gregory sustained was very serious indeed. Fortunately the surgery went as I expected with no problems whatsoever. He asked me beforehand whether he would be able to wrestle again at the same level of the competition, and I told him there and then that it could be at least a year before he’s even able t’ lift weights. He knows that he’s got a long road of rehabilitation ahead of him, but even then his neck might not be strong enough.

The shot goes back to Helms in the gym.

Gregory Helms:
This has been the hardest year of my life by far. Even though I’ve been on the sidelines before, I’ve never really thought about my career being over. When I came out of surgery, Doctor Youngblood told me that was a real possibility and that I had a long road ahead of me if I ever wanted t’ get back in the ring again.

Shots of Helms working out in the gym were then shown before going back to Helms stood up in real-time.

Gregory Helms:
The reality is that you never know which match could be your last. You’ve gotta enjoy it while you can and I’m gonna do exactly that when I come back. It’s been a long time I can tell ya, but my neck’s healed up real good and I’m ready t’ go.




{Cut to Ringside}


*Match #4*

Matt Hardy & Paul London vs The Miz & Brian Kendrick

John Morrison joined DiBiase & JR at the announce table, distracting The Miz throughout. Despite taking charge of London, he took some time out to talk smack at an amused Morrison. The Miz was clearly frustrated by Morrison’s lack of a reaction, and as he went back to the match, London took him down with a dropsault. They both collided moments later with a double clothesline, leading to them both tagging in their respective partners. Matt was on fire and quickly put Kendrick on the back foot. Matt was able to hit the Side Effect and a diving leg drop from the second rope, but as he went for the Twist of Fate, The Miz got in the ring to break it up. The ref quickly directed him back to the ropes as Morrison then got up from the announce position and pulled The Miz out of the ring, who landed on the padded floor. Morrison went to sit back down after apologising to the referee as Miz sat up, looking absolutely livid. Back in the ring, Matt tried to pull Kendrick up again, but Kendrick shoved him away. Matt walked back with Kendrick then looking for a super kick, but Matt ducked it and hit the Twist of Fate for the victory as Miz watched on. Morrison smiled at the bell as London joined Hardy in the ring to celebrate their win. Miz stood up and stared angrily at Morrison, but The Shaman of Sexy thanked JR & DiBiase before leaving and walking to the back while smiling at his shocked & furious former tag team partner.

Winners: Matt Hardy & Paul London by pinfall @ 6.18.


{Commercial Break}


*Match #5*

Shad Gaspard w/JTG vs Eddie Colon w/Carlito & Eric Perez

Shad & Eddie put on a very competitive match with Eddie taking the big man by surprise at times. He followed up a thunderous leg lariat with a missile dropkick, only to get a two count to the relief of the crowd who gave Cryme Time a big reaction when they came out. Eddie then looked to hit a corkscrew senton but missed as Shad rolled to the side at the last second. Gaspard then took control after reversing a whip and planting Colon with one hell of a Samoan Drop. Eddie bravely kicked out but was looking in trouble after that as Shad then pulled him up and ended it with a jack-knife powerbomb. JTG pulled Perez down off the apron in time, but Perez turned round and drilled him to the floor. Shad walked over to the ropes, and with his back turned, Carlito slipped in the ring behind him and drilled him with the Backstabber. He looked down with a big smirk on his face and nodded approvingly at Perez as Eddie sat up.

Winner: Shad Gaspard by pinfall @ 5.49.


{Cut Backstage}


A worried looking William Regal walks down the hall and stops at a door before knocking on it.

?:
Come in.

Regal then pushes the door open and walks right in to The Corporation’s locker room/office. Vince & Shane McMahon, JBL & The Big Show all stand up and don’t seem best pleased by his presence.

JBL:
What on earth brings you here?

Vince McMahon: I’ll handle this son.

Vince walks right up to Regal.

Vince McMahon:
Well. Did you take care of things as we discussed?

William Regal: Well, not exactly.

Vince McMahon: What do you mean not exactly?

The anger is written all over Vince’s face, just as the worry is on Regal’s.

William Regal:
Well the thing is Mister McMahon, Bischoff knows about our arrangements, not that I told him. It appears he heard our conversation earlier on.

Vince turns his back on Regal and shakes his head.

Vince McMahon:
Great, just great. I told you Shane. What’s t’ stop him going t’ the board and telling them everything?

JBL walks across to Regal and looks him right in the face.

JBL:
It appears as if you’ve gone and made a real mess of an already volatile situation. Not only have you ruined your own plans to be general manager, we still have t’ deal with Eric Bischoff, and now he’s wise to everything we’ve discussed. Well done Regal. I hope you realise just how much trouble we’re all in now because of you and your big mouth.

JBL shakes his head and then grabs him before throwing him out of the room.

JBL:
What are we gonna do now before this gets even more out of hand?

The Big Show: We could. . .

Vince McMahon: . . . Wait, we have t’ be careful. Linda will jump at the chance t’ punish each and everyone one of us. We have to be clever about this.

Shane McMahon: Dad, I don’t mean to interrupt but the clock’s ticking. He could already have told her all about it. We need a plan and we need one now.

They all look at each other as the camera fades to black.


{Commercial Break}


*The Main Event*

Non Title Match
Batista w/Ric Flair vs Randy Orton

Batista was insanely over with the crowd, and The Animal went at Orton like a steam train in the early going. His aggressiveness went too far though and allowed Orton back in to the match with The Legend Killer poking the WWE Champion in the eye as the ref told Batista to ditch the closed fists. Orton spent a lot of time in keeping The Animal grounded until he thought he had him where he wanted him. As Batista slowly made his way up being closely watched by Flair, The Legend Killer struck with precision with an inverted headlock backbreaker. Batista comfortably kicked out at two, but Orton wasn’t done as he stalked his prey for the potentially career ending punt to the head. The crowd tried to warn Batista, and as Orton ran at him, Batista rose from his knees and planted him with a spinebuster, sending the crowd crazy. It took him a while to get back up, and when he did, he pulled the squirming Orton in to position for the Batista Bomb. He lifted him in to the air, but Orton was able to jump down to safety and exploded with an RKO. Still feeling the effects of the spinebuster, he couldn’t take advantage straight away and when he went for the cover, Batista kicked out at two to the despair of Orton. He then prepared to hit another, urging Batista up, and as the champion got to his feet, Orton went for the RKO, but Batista pushed him back in to the ropes and kicked him in the gut as he came back. He then pulled him in to place and planted him with the Batista Bomb. Just as he was about to go for the cover, Triple H made his way down the ramp with a sledgehammer in hand. Flair was standing with his back to the ramp, totally unaware of The Game approaching behind him. The fans tried to warn him, and so did Batista as he turned round in a horror. Flair didn’t know what was going on as he turned right round in to a shot to the head with the sledgehammer. Triple H then slid inside the ring as Batista got to his feet. Batista went right for him but ran right in to a shot of The Game’s trusted ally, causing the referee to call for the bell. He too then fell foul of sledgy as The Game looked down at the carnage.

Winner: Batista by DQ @ 8.27.


The camera cuts to the back and there’s a lot of noise with several officials & backstage workers rallying round and calling for help. We then see one of the referees turn round and drop to his knees, and we’re greeted by the sight of Eric Bischoff laid out face down across the floor with blood pouring from the side of his head. EMT’s rush over to him while the camera switches back to the arena with the footage in the back being shown on the tron for the fans to see, as well as a smirking Triple H as Raw comes to a close.

Default Re: WWE: A Strong Response




>Who Attacked Eric Bischoff?<

Last night at the end of Raw, a bloodied Head of Authority Eric Bischoff was found laid out in the backstage area. It shocked everyone watching in the arena and at home, and there is one question one everybody’s lips; who attacked Eric Bischoff? The only update we have at the moment is that he is still in a local medical facility in the Reno area and that his status hasn’t been disclosed.

During the entire evening, Bischoff followed up one argument with another, leaving a large list of potential suspects.


Triple H. At the top of the show, Bischoff indefinitely suspended The Game for attacking a referee the week before after the show went off the air. We later saw Triple H return to the building during the main event with his trusty sledgehammer, and when the image of Bischoff was shown to everyone inside the arena, The Game’s only reaction was a sadistic smile. The time fits and there’s no doubting he had a strong motive, but did he attack the Head of Authority?

Vince McMahon & The Corporation. The Chairman of the Board & his associates also had a strong motive after Bischoff discovered they were conspiring with William Regal to have him fired. Knowing full well that Bischoff could take the matter to Linda McMahon, Vince said himself that they needed to come up with a quick and effective plan. Are The Corporation responsible?

William Regal. There’s no doubting Regal’s motives after he was fired by Bischoff as his Executive Assistant for conspiring with The Corporation in order to get the top job himself. Regal has a reputation for being a slippery character, and you can’t put this past the Englishman either.

Randy Orton. The Legend Killer hasn’t stopped badgering Bischoff for a rematch at the WWE Championship ever since he lost the title back at WrestleMania several months ago. Despite being given a match with Batista last night, the title wasn’t up for grabs. And having been given another dressing down from him, did Orton finally snap at Bischoff?

Cody Rhodes. Cody wasn’t best pleased when he discovered Kane received a rematch for the WWE Championship last week as he felt he deserved another crack at Kofi Kingston & the Intercontinental Championship. He went to the Head of Authority last night and pleaded his case, only for it to fall on deaf ears and receive a similar dressing down to Orton. Is Cody the one who left Bischoff out cold in a puddle of his own blood?

Ted DiBiase Jr. With life going from bad to worse for the third generation superstar, did the former Million Dollar Champion cross the line and attack Bischoff? He certainly wasn’t shy in letting Bischoff know his feelings about his father being brought in as a replacement for Jerry “The King” Lawler, the same man DiBiase Jr attacked last week? Did DiBiase strike again?

There is of course the possibility that the assailant is someone no one currently suspects and could have had a run in with Bischoff that we don’t know about. Whoever is responsible will have to face up to the actions sometime in the near future.

Next week's Raw promises to be one interesting evening indeed.

Smackdown Preview - Friday 11th July 2008
Live From the Blue Cross Arena
Rochester, New York
3 Hour Special - 2 Days Until The Great American Bash!





>Punk Holds His Future In His Own Hands<

As CM Punk prepares to defend his World Heavyweight Championship against not one but four challengers at The Great American Bash, he will see them compete against each other first hand just two days before the defining night of his career so far.

He went face to face with the four men chasing his world title last week and ended up on the receiving end of a chokeslam from The Undertaker, but come this Friday night in Rochester, New York, he will be at the centre of the action when he dons a referee's jersey and holds the fate of the same men who doubted him in his hands. With so much at stake and the odds firmly against the World Champion at The Bash, will he let fate take its natural course or take matters in to his own hands?

The Straight Edge Superstar won't be the only one battling to hold on to championship gold at The Bash this weekend as Shelton Benjamin attempts to make up for his loss to Matt Sydal at the King of the Ring and defeat the King in order to retain the United States title. Having ruined Sydal's crowning ceremony several weeks ago and putting him on the shelf, The Gold Standard got the shock of his life last Friday night when Sydal finally returned and chased him out of the ring and through the crowd. There'll be nowhere to run Sunday night, but maybe Benjamin should worry about coming face to face with Sydal this week on Smackdown too.

Sydal's return last week ended up costing Benjamin's partners, The Masters of the Mat their six-man tag team match, giving The UK Pack a victory heading in to The Final Encounter between the two teams this Sunday with the WWE Tag Team titles up for grabs. For the last couple of weeks, Paul Burchill & Harry Smith have frustrated Chris Masters & Charlie Haas, and with so much at stake this weekend, the champs will be looking to keep the momentum on their side. Will they be able to do just that? Masters & Haas will surely be going all out to change to ensure they take their last chance come Sunday.

The Cruiserweight Champion, Michael Shane had a tough night last Friday when Johnny Jeter sent him a strong statement of intent as they prepare to fight it out for the Cruiserweight Championship at The Great American Bash. Jeter didn't give Shane a chance to celebrate his victory over Orlando Jordan, attacking him and telling him exactly what he thought about the champion's relationship with his mother. Will Shane come to regret angering his rival because of the relationship with Jeter's mom? Time will tell!

We will crown the first ever WWE Diva's Champion at The Great American Bash, and this Friday night we will discover who will face Beth Phoenix as the Elimination Series draws to an end. Mickie James was the victor two weeks ago when she eliminated her friend, Michelle McCool and crushed her chances of being the last woman standing. Having earned a free pass from last week's clash, Mickie will take on Mia Rain after she saw The Glamazon end Gail Kim's hopes of becoming the first ever Diva's Champion. Who will come out on top and book their spot against Phoenix, and who will see their chances crash and burn just two days before The Bash and the big title match?

After months of pure hatred and contempt, Ron Killings & Chavo Guerrero will look to settle their hostile rivalry when they collide at The Bash. We saw Killings challenge Chavo last week after receiving yet more abuse from The Mexican who wants nothing more than to see Killings out of his life and the WWE for good. Will he get his wish? Not if Killings has anything to say about it as he looks to make Chavo eat his words.

Jack Swagger was looking to find a way in to the scramble match last week, and Tazz gave him the chance to fight his way if he could beat Bobby Lashley by pinfall or submisson. Swagger did indeed emerge victorious but only due to disqualification, meaning he would miss out on the chance to fight for the World Heavyweight Championship. Has Swagger been able to calm down since last week? Doubtful!

The Pitbulls came unstuck last week when Jimmy Yang picked up a victory over Jamie Noble. Yang and his buddy, Sonjay Dutt will team up to take on Noble & Kid Kash in this week's 3 hour special.

The Smackdown fans got their first glimpse of Dolph Ziggler last Friday when he had a minor confrontation with Elijah Burke & Layla, and we can now confirm that he has signed a deal to officially join the Smackdown roster. He will be making his in-ring debut this week. Will the newest addition to the blue brand be able to continue his perfect record he's gained on Superstars in recent weeks?

***Opening Video***
“If You Rock Like Me”



*Video Recap*
From Last Week

Christian, Chris Jericho & Edge all talking up their chances for the scramble match at The Great American Bash and playing down CM Punk’s, leading to the World Heavyweight Champion coming out and claiming that he will leave The Bash still the World Champion.

The Undertaker’s sudden appearance, sending Christian, Jericho & Edge to safety and leaving Punk to fall victim to a chokeslam before Tazz then announced that this week it will be The Undertaker & Christian taking on Edge & Jericho in tag team action with Punk as the Special Guest Referee.



{Cut to the Arena}


**Pyro**
**Pyro**
**Pyro**


“On Your Knees” hits to heat from the Rochester crowd as a highly agitated Jack Swagger makes his way down to the ring, picking up a microphone from the steps on his way.

Jack Swagger:
Last week in this very ring, I beat Bobby Lashley.

*Heat*

Jack Swagger: Not only did I beat Bobby Lashley, I earned a spot in the scramble match for the World Heavyweight Championship this Sunday at The Great American Bash, or so I thought. . . I had an agreement with our esteemed general manager which guaranteed me a place at The Bash two nights from now, only t’ have it cruelly taken away from me.

*Pop*

Jack Swagger: Oh, you think that’s funny?

*Big Pop*

Jack Swagger: Let me assure you, it’s not in the least bit funny that I’ve had the chance to become the World Champion taken away from me by actions out of my control. . . See I beat Lashley like I was asked to do last week, but it wasn’t my fault that Lashley got himself disqualified and cost me the spot I had promised to me. It’s just not fair at all and I’m not gonna stand for it. . . I’ve been left with no choice but to stand here and demand Tazz puts me in the scramble match right now, and I’m not going anywhere until he does.

*Heat*

Swagger is hot and turns round to face the stage, eagerly awaiting Tazz’s response, but he’s nowhere to be seen after a couple of seconds.

Jack Swagger:
Come on Tazz, don’t make me come back there.

“13” blasts out to a pop & Tazz calmly walks out to the stage with a microphone in hand with Swagger watching on intently.

Tazz:
Jack my boy, it looks as though we’ve got our wires crossed. . . See last week, I thought I made it clear when I said you had t’ pin Lashley or make him submit. I don’t know if you’ve watched the tape back, but you did neither. So if you’re lookin’ for someone t’ blame Jack, you’re lookin’ at the wrong guy. That’s why my decision stands and you won’t be competin’ in the scramble match this Sunday.

*Big Pop*

Swagger doesn’t look happy at all.

Tazz:
The problem is Jack, you’ve not proven y’can beat Lashley. However bein’ the good guy that I am, I’m gonna give y’that chance once again here t’night. . .

Jack Swagger: . . . And if I win. . . Sorry. When I win, I want the same spot you promised me last week. I want in on the scramble match.

Tazz: Jack I ain’t gonna lie t’ ya, that ain’t gonna happen. Y’can get that out o’ your head right now. . . See for some reason Jack, I’ve been impressed with what I’ve seen in the ring from y’so far, an’ that’s why I’ve decided t’ give ya an opportunity t’ prove yourself here on Smackdown. . . Like I said, you’re gonna face Lashley again here t’night and have the chance t’ prove y’can beat him. However you’re gonna have t’ beat him on no less than three occasions, because you will be competin’ in a best of five series over the next month or so.

*Big Pop*

Tazz: And Jack, that starts right now.

*Pop*

Tazz: Y’know what? I might just stick around too an’ see how y'get on. . . Good luck.

“Hell Will Be Callin' Your Name” is blasted out through the speakers of the Blue Cross Arena & Bobby Lashley walks out to the stage to a big pop. Tazz extends his hand to Lashley and the big man shakes it.


*The Opening Match*

Best of 5 Series – Match #1
Bobby Lashley vs Jack Swagger

Swagger clearly wasn't happy with Tazz and he walked over to the ropes as Lashley got in the ring and started shouting and pointing at the GM. As the bell rung, Swagger ignored it for a couple of seconds and was unaware of it before turning round and walked right in to a spear with Lashley picking up the victory and inflicting Swagger's first ever defeat.


Winner: Bobby Lashley by pinfall @ 0.08.
(Lashley leads the series 1-0)

Aftermath: Lashley’s music plays again and he gets his arm raised quickly before acknowledging the fans and then leaving the ring while Tazz applauds him at the top of the ramp. Lashley then shakes hands with the smiling general manager as an angry looking Swagger sits up clutching his stomach in the ring.

Tazz: Whoa that was real unlucky Jack. You ought t' consider yourself real lucky you ain't out o' the series altogether. I suggest y'shake y'self back t'gether an' get ready for part two, ‘cause that’s gonna be this Sunday at The Bash.

Swagger stares back up the ramp with a look of real anger as Tazz coolly turns round and walks to the back.


{Cut Backstage}


Maria is standing by at the interview set.

Maria:
Please welcome my special guest at this time, Johnny Jeter.

The camera zooms out and shows a very serious looking Johnny Jeter standing alongside Maria.

Maria:
Johnny, in just two days you will be taking on Michael Shane for the Cruiserweight Championship. What are your thoughts?

Johnny Jeter: Maria with all due respect, I think my thoughts are pretty obvious, although I think we all know why it's difficult for you t' figure it out. Maybe you should be askin’ me about my chances of walkin’ away from The Bash as the new holder of that pretty lookin’ thing Michael Shane has around his waist, and I ain't talkin' about my mom. I'm talkin' about the cruiserweight title, and come Sunday night, it will be mine I promise y' that. . . See unlike Shane, I've got my priorities in place. The cruiserweight title is the only thing I want, not some middle age woman goin’ through a mid-life crisis. I'm the one who's all business. I'm the one who's eyes are firmly on the prize, not livin' off my cousin's reputation and pickin' up other guys moms. He's hardly the class act everyone including my mom likes t' think he is, but he's welcome to her. The cruiserweight title and any title for that matter are way more important t' me than she is, and Shane's gonna find that out for himself first hand at The Bash.

Johnny's mother, Louisa, looking fairly downbeat walks in to the shot, taking both Jeter & Maria by surprise, and Johnny doesn't look that pleased to see her.

Louisa Jeter:
Johnny, I know you're not happy an' everything with what's been goin' on but I'm still worried about you.

Johnny Jeter: That's nice mom. Try tellin' someone who gives a rat's ass.

Johnny turns to walk away but Louisa grabs his arm to stop him, forcing Johnny to turn round and listen to her.

Louisa Jeter:
Johnny you need t' listen. Michael's very angry and I had t' beg him to stop him coming after you.

Johnny Jeter: I didn't ask for any o' this mom. I don't need you t' look out for me anymore. You're the one who caused all this. It's all your fault, an' if you're lookin' for someone t' blame for your precious little toy boy gettin' his ass kicked last week an' when I take his title from him Sunday, y’needn't look no further. If he's got any kind of brain south of his pants, he'll see that too an' do what dad did and kick y'to the curb. . . Now if that's all, I've gotta match t' prepare for.

Louisa takes it badly and looks to Maria for support.

Louisa Jeter:
Is he right? Is it really my fault?

Maria doesn't know what to say and just looks blankly towards an emotional Louisa.

Louisa Jeter:
What should I do? How do I work this all out?

She gets the same blank response from Maria and stands there looking genuinely upset and confused as the camera fades out.

*CCTV footage is shown from earlier in the day at what looks to be the hallway of a hotel. We then see Harry Smith of The UK Pack and then his partner, Paul Burchill walk out of a room dragging their travel bags out in to the corridor with their tag team titles resting on top. Burchill turns back and then goes back in to the room, leaving Smith all by himself. After about five seconds, two guys are shown running up the hall, and they attack Smith, pounding him down to the floor. We can now see that the two men are Chris Masters & Charlie Haas. The Masters of the Mat pick the tag titles up and take them as Burchill comes back out in to the hallway and sees Smith writhing around on the floor. He drops to his knees to check on him and then looks up to see Haas & Masters at the end of the corridor laughing at back at them. Burchill races to his feet and The Masters of the Mat turn round and walk away with Burchill then turning his attention back to his partner.*

*Match #2*

Ron Killings vs Orlando Jordan

Killings was fired up from the get go and was very aggressive compared to his usual self and finished Jordan off with a thunderous enziguri followed by a corkscrew scissors kick.


Winner: Ron Killings by pinfall @ 5.28.

Aftermath: A casually dressed Chavo Guerrero storms the ring and knocks Killings down to his knees from behind. He proceeds to stomp the holy hell out of him, leaving him lying flat on his back in the middle of the ring and then sees off the referee. Guerrero then leaves the ring to collect a steel chair and brings it back in the ring as Killings struggles to get to his knees. Chavo sizes him up with the chair in hand, and as Killings gets to his feet and turns round, Chavo blasts him in the skull and knocks him flat on his back again. Chavo drops the chair and grabs Killings by the arm, then drags him towards the ropes. He lets go and pulls out some handcuffs from the pockets in his jeans with a big smile on his face. The fans boo as Chavo then sits Killings up against the ropes and cuffs him by one arm to the middle rope. He then retreats from the ropes to lay his hands on the steel chair, generating a deafening amount of heat as the fans try to encourage Killings to somehow fight back.

?: HEY!

An angry Tazz walks out to the stage with a microphone in hand with Chavo glaring up at him as he stands over Killings.

Tazz:
I suggest y'hold it right there Chavo unless y'want me t' fire your ass here an' now, 'cause believe me I ain’t got no problem doin’ that. . . Now I have your attention an’ since you so clearly 'wanna take this thing t' the extremes, your match this Sunday is now gonna be a streetfight an' end this whole thing once an' for all.

*Big Pop*

Chavo drops the chair and then spits on Killings before staring up at the business like Tazz.

Jimmy Yang & Sonjay Dutt vs The Pitbulls

In what was a very competitive and fast paced match, Noble & Kash came out on top after Kash distracted Dutt while on the top rope. It gave Noble time to stand up and send Yang off the apron who was trying to get at Kash. Noble then tossed Dutt off the top and down to the mat before finishing him off with a double underhook powerbomb.


Winners: The Pitbulls by pinfall @ 7.14.

Mickie James is stretching in the backstage area getting ready for her match with Mia Rain later on for the right to take on Beth Phoenix for the Diva's Championship at The Great American Bash. Michelle McCool then approaches her and Mickie stands up straight so she can talk to her fellow diva and friend.

Michelle McCool:
Hey Mickie, I've been lookin' all over for you. How's it goin'?

Mickie James: I'm good. I just wanted to relax and get myself ready for my match. I've gotta be on my game t'night if I'm gonna have any chance of winning. You don't mind leaving me to it do y’Michelle?

Michelle McCool: No not at all, I just wanted t' wish you luck. I hope you're the one who takes all this since you beat me an' all.

Mickie grins ever so slightly.

Mickie James:
Well rest assured I'm gonna give it my best shot.

Michelle McCool: Don't worry, I gotta feelin' you're gonna do it.

Mickie James: Y'think so?

Michelle McCool: Yeah, but good luck all the same.

Mickie James: Thanks Michelle.

Michelle McCool: Don't mention it. Just bring it home y'here.

McCool smiles and walks away, leaving Mickie to get back to some stretching.


{Commercial Break}


Chris Jericho is walking through the hallway and stops at one of the locker room doors and walks in to be met by Edge, Petey Williams & Johnny Devine. There's a bit of tension in there with all four men looking very serious.

Chris Jericho:
I don't want to waste any of your time but as I'm sure your aware, we've been thrown together t'night t' face Christian and The Undertaker, then it's every man for himself at The Great American Bash this Sunday. I know we've both been through situations like these on plenty of occasions, but t'night we have the opportunity to help each other significantly. Just like you, I too have a history with your loud mouth brother, and the only thing that would satisfy me more than embarrassing Christian and ending his slim title hopes would be t’ see The Undertaker go up in smoke right here t'night. If we work together, we can make all that a reality, giving the both of us a better chance to walk out of the scramble match this Sunday as the World Heavyweight Champion.

Edge: Chris, you're exactly right. That's why you should ignore all those ignorant jackasses sat out there, because what you just said makes total sense. Even though we both know Christian has no chance whatsoever of ever being the World Champion, he's still gonna get what's comin' to him sooner rather than later, and that might as well be t'night to save himself any further embarrassment an' disappointment Sunday. And as far as The Undertaker goes, I've got no problem in takin' him out too.

Jericho smiles and nods his head.

Chris Jericho:
I'm glad t' hear it. I'll see you out there partner.

Jericho turns round and leaves the room with Williams & Devine turning to Edge.

Johnny Devine:
You buy that?

Edge: Oh don't worry about me. I'm not turning my back on anybody t'night and neither should Jericho. Only one person can walk out of The Bash as the World Heavyweight Champion, and you’re lookin’ at ‘im.

That amuses Devine & Williams as the camera then zooms in on the deadly serious face of The Rated-R Superstar.


*A recap from last week is shown with Johnny Jeter attacking Michael Shane after the Cruiserweight Champion's victory over Orlando Jordan and then announcing that they will be facing off at The Great American Bash for the title.*

*Match #4*

Super Crazy vs Johnny Jeter

Jeter got the better of Crazy in a quick and even match, but it was the number one contender for the Cruiserweight Championship who managed to dodge a tornado DDT and throw him down to the mat before nailing him with a Genesis Kick as Crazy picked himself back up only to slump back down and end up on the wrong side of a 3 count.


Winner: Johnny Jeter by pinfall @ 6.22.

Aftermath: As Jeter gets his arm raised, Michael Shane & Louisa Jeter make their way down the ramp. Jeter turns round and looks confused while Shane looks fairly serious with Louisa appearing as emotional as she was earlier. Shane gets in the ring and sits on the middle rope to allow Louisa to enter too with Jeter staring right at him as Shane walks past his rival to collect a microphone before joining him in the middle of the ring.

Michael Shane:
There's no reason t' look so worried Johnny, I'm not gonna lay a hand on ya, but you've only got your mom t' thank for that and not gettin’ your ass handed to ya on a plate right now 'cause she begged me not to lay a hand on ya. Well, you know what it's like when a woman gets on their hands and knees huh don't y'Johnny? You just can't say no.

Jeter looks pissed and glares at the Cruiserweight Champion.

Michael Shane:
But in all seriousness J, it's real pathetic that you've got your mom fightin' your battles for ya.

Johnny Jeter (no microphone): I DIDN'T ASK HER TO!

Michael Shane: This is my time to talk alright, so shut up and listen for once. Y'might ‘ave gotten lucky t'night with your mom helpin' you out but that won't be the case Sunday. There's nothing she can say t' stop me beating the crap out of you and retaining this title I won back at WrestleMania. And even though you don't think I care about it, I do, more than anything. Trust me Johnny, you're gonna get yours, just like your mom did.

The crowd are amused by that, but both Jeters aren't with Johnny angry and Louisa shocked at what he said as Shane turns to her.

Michael Shane:
I'm sorry Lou. It was fun an' all, but the time for fun is over. It's time for business, and business is beating your boy here Sunday night and holdin’ on to my Cruiserweight title. That's what I have t' do, and that's what I'm gonna do. You take care Louisa and I'll see you Sunday Johnny.

Shane drops the stick and leaves the ring looking very business like as Louisa looks stunned with Johnny watching him leave, not taking his eyes off him.

Josh Matthews is standing by.

Josh Matthews:
Ladies and gentleman, please welcome my guests at this time, The Empire.

The camera zooms out and Drew McIntyre, Stu Sanders & Katie Lee walk in to the shot.

Josh Matthews:
Guys I have to ask; just why did you attack MVP in the manner that you did Saturday night on Superstars? Wasn't it enough what you did here two weeks ago when you made your debut right here on Smackdown?

Katie Lee: First off Josh, we're not all guys here okay and we're certainly not going to apologise for what we did to MVP on either occasion. You and the rest of this downright disgrace of a country might not like it or agree with our actions, you just have to accept them. We did what we came here to do, and that's stamp out any kind of bad role model this company has on display to the world’s television audience. . . MVP is just the start and we will do whatever it takes to make sure he and anyone else here on Smackdown does not negatively influence the behaviour of the younger generation back home. And if anyone has even the smallest doubts about whether we're able to hold up our end of the bargain, they should tune in to Superstars tomorrow night and they'll see exactly what we're capable of. . . Bye ladies.

Josh doesn't know what to make of Katie Lee and her comments as she grins at him and walks away with the deadly serious duo of McIntyre & Sanders.

“Masterpiece” plays to loud boos from the New York crowd, The Masters of the Mat walk down to the ring surrounded by security (6 men) with the WWE Tag Team titles they stole earlier in their possession. Looking very pleased with themselves, Chris Masters grabs a microphone to address the Rochester fans.

Chris Masters:
Good evening New York.

*Heat*

Chris Masters: Let me make this real clear for all of you. . . there's nothing you people or anyone else for that matter can say or do t’ get us down t'night as we stand before you as the soon to be WWE Tag Team Champions.

*Major Heat*

Chris Masters: Oh believe it, 'cause taking these titles earlier today was incredibly easy, so easy in fact that we've made our job of holding these titles officially even easier when we do another job on the doomed current holders, just like we did this afternoon. . . We’ve shown you that your champions are easy targets once again, and in about forty eight hours from now, these titles will be ours period.

*Heat*

Chris Masters: Don’t believe it if y’want, that’s fine. The proof is there. All y’have t’ do is look at the evidence of how we took these belts from them. Not only are we physically stronger than The UK Pack, we have the aggression and the ruthlessness t’ go with it. There’s no doubt whatsoever that they’re living on borrowed time, and once it’s made official, you’ll have champions. . .

“Britannia” hits to a big pop as the very intense duo of Paul Burchill & Harry Smith, The UK Pack walk down to the ring without their tag team titles. Security in the ring step in front of the challengers for Sunday’s match as Burchill picks up a microphone from the apron before climbing inside the squared circle, followed by Smith.

Paul Burchill:
Well, what do we have here? The self proclaimed ruthless, aggressive duo known as The Masters of the Mat not only are displaying a picture of fiction by holding our championship belts, but they’re painting a fictitious representation of themselves. See what I don’t understand gentleman is that despite your declaration of strength and ruthlessness, you’ve handed your testicles to these men and placed them in a wall in front of you to protect you from these easy targets.


*Big Pop*

Chris Masters: Hey, they’re for your benefit in case we decide on a repeat performance of earlier on. See we actually want that little bit left for this Sunday.

Paul Burchill: Oh really. Well why didn’t you say? That’s so nice of you Christopher, thank you. I can’t speak for Harry but I’m sure he’s just as grateful as I am. . . Just to avoid confusion as it’s so easy with you, this is of course the typical English sarcasm you Americans love so much, so I think it’s time I laid it all out on the line for you. . . From the way you tell it, you make out that Harry and I should be weak at the knees of having to defend our titles against you at The Great American Bash this Sunday. However flattered we are by your confidence in us as champions, I think it’s best to make you aware of just how much we’re looking forward to stepping in to the ring with you in this final encounter. See not only have you made our lives as difficult as possible for the last three months, you’ve managed to bring us closer together and more determined than ever. This ruthlessness and aggression you mentioned is inside of us as we speak, and it’s something that you’ll witness first hand in just two days when we defeat you once again and retain our WWE Tag Team titles.

*Pop*

Masters & Haas don’t look happy at all.

Paul Burchill:
The thing is Christopher and correct me if I’m wrong, I recall you pulling a similar stunt just days before our championship match at Judgment Day which resulted me in wearing a cast up until this week. And if I remember rightly, it was Harry and I that were successful. That my friends will be the same outcome when we. . .

Chris Masters: . . . Whoa, hold on. The only reason you won that night was ‘cause of that cast.

Paul Burchill: You may be right. However we might beat you again, and this time there’ll be no cast to blame it on. There’ll only be one source of blame then gentleman, and that will be yourselves in your final opportunity to officially take our titles from us.

Chris Masters: Yeah this is our last chance, but it’s the only chance we’re gonna need. Anyone can see we were robbed at Judgment Day, and I assure you that won’t happen again ‘cause we won’t allow it to. We’re sure as hell gonna put that night behind us and do what we should have done a long, long time ago, and that’s send you both back home to the UK crippled and beyond repair. By the time we’re done with you, this final encounter will be your final match period. You can try all you want t’ change that but you can’t. You can try it right now if you want, but I have t’ warn you that these guys here are under orders to hit first and think later. It’s your call. How lucky do y’feel?

Smith & Burchill turn and look at each other and Smith takes the microphone from his partner.

Harry Smith:
Do you really think we’re that stupid to fall in to this trap of yours? You might have ambushed us twice now, but we’re not going to play right in to your hands. We can see right through you both. You thought you’d get us hot under the collar, to come right after you and into a mugging. Well guess what? That’s not how this is going to work. I will however tell you just how this is going to work. This Sunday, Paul and I are going to show you and the entire world a whole new side of us when we wipe those smug grins off both of your faces, and it’ll all be your own fault. . . You made the same mistake before Judgment Day and you’ve made it again. You really should’ve learnt your lesson the first time. However this time, we have the added bonus of sending you out of our lives for good, which we will do I promise you. . . I don’t make many promises Christopher, but I swear t’ god that we’re going to give it everything we have to make sure we not only beat you and hold on to titles but give you the beating you so deserve.

*Huge Pop*

Smith lowers the microphone and glares right across at Masters & Haas.

Chris Masters:
Wow, I don’t know about you Charlie but I think I might have wet myself a bit! . . . I’ll give y’some credit guys, you’re talkin’ a good fight at least, but that ain’t gonna save you Sunday ‘cause nothing can. . . Your title reign is over. . . dead, just like your dad Harry.

*Major Heat*

Smith lets go of the microphone and moves forward towards the wall of security protecting Masters & Haas, but Burchill manages to grab him and keep him away. Smith is livid though and tries to escape his own partner’s clutches, but Burchill holds on as security get ready to go. Fortunately, Smith sees sense and retreats with Burchill to leave the ring. The Masters of the Mat smirk back at the livid champions as they back up the ramp.


{Commercial Break}


“I Am Perfection” hits and Dolph Ziggler walks down to the ring with a big smile on his face, looking very smug and shrugging off the boos from the Rochester faithful. He is then passed a microphone by Justin Roberts.

Dolph Ziggler:
All of you people here in Rochester, New York t’night are fortunate enough to witness the Smackdown debut of the single greatest addition to the Smackdown roster in a long, long time. . . You might have seen me cruise to victories on Superstars over the past few weeks, but for those of you that haven’t, my name is Dolph Ziggler. . . The very moment I came to the WWE, I was offered extremely lucrative contracts by both Eric Bischoff and Tazz, and after performances that were described as nothing short of perfection, the terms and the perks only got better. When it came down to it, it was Tazz that gave me an offer that no one could refuse and here I am exclusively on Friday Night Smackdown.

*Heat*

Dolph Ziggler: Over the years, I’ve seen many many people stand in this ring and claim to be something they’re not, but I can assure you I am for real when I say that I am the closest thing to perfection you will see in this ring. That’s why Tazz has gone to great expense to acquire my unlimited talent for Smackdown’s benefit, and just to prove it to you people, I am extending an open challenge to any Smackdown superstar to face me right here right now. I know that it must be intimidating. . .

“Don’t Waste My Time” plays to cheers from the crowd as a focused Elijah Burke makes his way in to the arena with Layla on his arm. Ziggler passes the microphone back to Roberts, and Smackdown’s newest superstar looks more impressed by Layla by Burke as they walk down the ramp.


*Match #5*

Elijah Burke w/Layla vs Dolph Ziggler

Ziggler managed to come back after a slow start having taken his eye off the ball to check out Layla. He used some cheap tactics to get back in to it, using a thumb to the eye behind the referee's back to take control of the match. Burke fought back later and dodged a leg drop bulldog, then seized the intiative once again after a lifting spinning sit down spinebuster. Ziggler showed some courage and kicked out at 2, and just as it looked like Burke was going to hit the Elijah Express, Ziggler stepped to the side and quickly rolled him up while holding Burke's tights and resting both his feet on the rope. The referee was completely oblivious and counted to 3 with Ziggler high tailing it right away.


Winner: Dolph Ziggler by pinfall @ 7.54.

The Masters of the Mat are walking through the arena and open the door to the parking lot. They still have the WWE Tag Team titles in hand as well as being followed by six security workers. They walk towards their car, and as they get to it, security turn round and open the door, only for Harry Smith to storm through it, followed by Paul Burchill.

Harry Smith:
HEY! GET YOUR ASS BACK IN HERE MASTERS YOU SON OF A BITCH.

Masters turns round, as does Haas, but security quickly block Smith off from getting anywhere near them. Burchill tries to pull him away from them while Masters & Haas watch on laughing.

Chris Masters:
HEY BOYS, LOOKING FOR THESE?

Masters & Haas lift the title belts up, infuriating both Burchill & Smith, but security keep them well apart, much to the amusement of The Masters of the Mat.

Harry Smith:
YOU’RE GONNA HAVE T’ SEND US T’ HELL IF YOU’RE GONNA TAKE THEM FROM US SUNDAY. WE’RE GONNA FINISH YOU, I PROMISE YOU. YOU’RE DEAD Y’HEAR ME, DEAD!

Chris Masters: JUST LIKE YOUR DAD THEN HUH?

That sends Smith over the top, and he tries to shove his way through security, but two of them hit him and send him down to the floor. Burchill tries to stand up for his partner but gets the same treatment. Masters & Haas just laugh as they watch on.

Chris Masters:
GOOD JOB GUYS!

They then get in the car and drive off as security walk back in the arena with The UK Pack standing back up with fury written all over their faces.

*Match #6*

WWE Divas Championship
Elimination Series – Match #4 of 5
Mickie James vs Mia Rain
(The winner will face Beth Phoenix at The Great American Bash in the final match)

With Beth Phoenix watching on at ringside, stood next to the brand new WWE Diva's Championship laid out on a pedestal at the bottom of the ramp, Mickie & Mia gave it everything they could to book a date at The Great American Bash with The Glamazon. Mickie took control early on by taking Rain off guard with her speed. Rain fought back with a stiff kick to the face as Mickie came charging back off the ropes. Mia used the momentum to get a foothold and came close with a neckbreaker, but as she looked on the brink of victory, Mickie escaped to safety before she fell victim to Acid Rain and stunned Mia with a spin kick to the face. She couldn't take advantage right away and only got a two count as Mia just got her shoulder up. They both struggled back to their feet, and as Mickie went for another spin kick, Rain ducked it and went for a quick clothesline, only to knock the referee down. She looked down at him, but as she turned back round to face Mickie, she walked right in to an Implant DDT.

The crowd went nuts, but as Mickie covered her, the referee was unable to make the count. Michelle McCool then raced down past a confused Beth Phoenix and slid in the ring. An equally confused Mickie stood up as McCool checked on the referee, but as Mickie then spun McCool round to ask her why she was there, McCool stomped her in the gut and gave her a DDT of her own. The crowd booed and look stunned as an intense McCool looked down coldly at Mickie while Beth watched on in equal shock. McCool then left the ring and stormed past the bemused Glamazon as both Rain and the referee started to sit up. Mickie was barely moving and Rain used it to her full advantage as she dragged her up and this time hit the Acid Rain (Bridging straight jacket electric chair drop) to pick up the huge victory and shot at the Divas Championship at The Bash. She then stood up and walked over to the ropes in front of Beth and stared down at her with both divas then turning to look at the title belt they'll be fighting for come Sunday.


Winner: Mia Rain by pinfall @ 8.51.

Maria is standing by.

Maria:
Joining me at this time is the World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk.

Boos filter through from the arena as the camera shows CM Punk wearing a referee’s shirt and standing next to Maria with the World Championship resting on his shoulder.

Maria:
We’re just two days away from The Great American Bash where you will be defending the world title in a scramble match against four of Smackdown’s very best superstars, but t’night you will be the special guest referee when they all face each other in tag team action. How are you going to call the match, because some people are saying you might be looking out for your own interests?

CM Punk: Maria, if people are saying that then I don’t blame them. Of course I would be best off looking out for my own interests, but that’s not what I’m going to do. I’m going to do what every referee should and call it right down the line, an’ y’know why Maria? It’s because I resent these people saying I have t’ resort t’ desperate measures for me t’ hold on to the world title. I’m the World Heavyweight Champion for a reason. That being that I worked my ass off t’ get through the door t’ the WWE and to the level I am today. I’m not gonna apologise for being smart enough to capitalise on the opportunity I earned fair and square just because it upsets some people. All I have t’ say to them Maria is that it doesn’t matter how I became t’ be the World Champion because I’ve worked my ass in t’ the ground for a long time now and that’s not gonna change. I’m gonna have t’ be just as smart and bust my ass just as much as I have my entire career to ensure I remain the World Heavyweight Champion. If people doubt me, so be it. There’s not a whole lot I can do t’ change that with words, but I’ll prove everyone wrong this Sunday when I do what I do best at The Great American Bash where I will walk in and out the World Champion. Then the world will see that CM Punk deserves t’ be the World Heavyweight Champion.

Maria just watches as Punk stares intently in to the camera for a couple of seconds before walking out of the shot, letting everyone know that he means business this Sunday.

“Ain’t No Stoppin’ Me” plays to a chorus of boos as the casually dressed WWE United States Champion, Shelton Benjamin steps out in to the arena. He has a big grin on his face as he walks down to the ring and then collects a microphone.

Shelton Benjamin:
I’m sure a lot o’ you are wondering just why I’m looking so cool t’night when I’m just days away from going one on one with the boy wonder of the WWE, the 2008 King of the Ring. . . MATT SYDAL!

*Big Pop*

Shelton Benjamin: Yeah, that Matt Sydal. The kid that’s on a roll, a huge roll. He’s arguably the hottest guy in the company right now, or would be if it wasn’t for me bringing him crashing down t’ earth with a bang. . . See everyone needs to sit up and face the facts. . . Matt Sydal is a fluke!

*Heat*

Shelton Benjamin: It’s not up for debate. NO IFS, NO BUTS. MATT SYDAL GOT LUCKY. . . FACT!

*Heat*

Shelton Benjamin: I don’t care what happened last week when he flew down here an’ came right after me. Y’wanna know why? It’s because I’m one step ahead o’ him, just like I will be at The Great American Bash when I expose him for the fluke that he is an’ prove that in no way shape or form should he have won the King of the Ring or that he’s capable of beating me for my United States Championship.

*Heat*

Shelton Benjamin: You’re gonna have t’ face facts ‘cause when I beat wonder boy Sunday, you will all owe me an apology. . . Y’heard CM Punk talk ‘bout how he isn’t given the respect he deserves, an’ let me tell ya, he ain’t the only one. You people need t’ treat me. . .

“Axeman” blasts out to a huge pop as a very different looking Matt Sydal walks out to the stage. He looks very serious indeed as he walks down the ramp and stares right at an also serious looking United States Champion. Sydal picks up a microphone from the steps before climbing through the ropes and in to the ring.

Matt Sydal:
Shelton, these people can treat you however they want.

*Big Pop*

Matt Sydal: They don’t need t’ listen to you, no one does. Just like them, I’m sick of hearing you talking crap ev’ry week.

*Pop*

Shelton stares furiously at the challenger to his title.

Matt Sydal:
The thing is Shelton, if I’d ‘ave got this close to you last week, things would be very diff’rent right now. You’re safe t’night, not that I can say the same for your title come Sunday.

*Pop*

Matt Sydal: I could’ve come flyin’ down here again and try t’ get even, but what would that achieve when I only have t’ wait two days to make you feel even more bitter than you already do? . . . The more I hear you call me lucky or a fluke Shelton, the less it bothers me because it just makes you look more pathetic every time. . . I do have to ask though just what your excuse will be if the worst happens and I do beat you again Shelton because it could happen. . .

Shelton Benjamin: . . . COULD HAPPEN BUT WON’T, LET ME TELL YA ‘CAUSE I’M GONNA EXPOSE YOU FOR WHAT YOU ARE. . .

Matt Sydal: . . . Give it a rest, you’re like a broken record. It’s the same thing every week. Matt Sydal got lucky, I’m gonna expose Matt Sydal as a fluke, a joke. The only thing you’re exposing is that you’re a cry baby. . . What do you think New York? Do you think Shelton Benjamin is a cry baby?

*Massive Pop*

Matt Sydal: That sounded pretty clear t’ me.

Shelton Benjamin: THEY DON’T KNOW ANYTHING.

Matt Sydal: Alright, let’s say you’re not a cry baby ‘cause to be fair, you might not be as everything’s not always what it seems. For example, before I became the King of the Ring, I would just come out here, do my best to put on a show for these great fans and win my matches if I could. But that’s all changed now for a couple of reasons. One being that obviously I won the King of the Ring and even surprised myself, and secondly, you’ve done something that no one ever has in my career, and that’s make things that extra bit personal. After you jumped me during my ceremony several weeks back, all I’ve thought about is getting even, and I’m not like that. I don’t get angry and crave revenge. You saw that yourself last week when you ran away like a girl.

*Pop*

Matt Sydal: I still want revenge Shelton, I just know how t’ channel my anger because I know what it’ll do to you if I beat you one more time and take the United States title from you. That’ll hurt you so much more than one moment of madness, and you have no idea how much I wanna beat you Shelton. We both know I can beat you and I’ve seen it every week since the King of the Ring how much that eats you up.

Shelton Benjamin: . . . Alright I’ve heard enough. Are you familiar with the theory that lightning doesn’t strike twice Matt? I am and that’s why I’m not bitter like you think I am ‘cause I know you can’t an’ won’t beat me again. . . Lighting won’t strike twice Matt. You won’t beat me and you won’t take my title. I guarantee it.

Matt Sydal: That’s a big guarantee, but if my maths is right, I’ve beaten you twice. Remember that non-title match after Judgment Day? I’m afraid it looks like lightning can strike twice.

Shelton Benjamin: Yeah like that first win counts.

Matt Sydal: I kinda think it does. In fact, I think I’m gonna make it three and 0 come Sunday. What do you people think?

*Massive Pop*

Shelton Benjamin: SHUT UP! THEY’VE NEVER APPRECIATED ME OR MY TALENT. I’M GONNA SHOW EACH AN’ EVERYONE OF YOU THAT I’M BETTER THAN THIS FLUKE. . . I’M GONNA SHOW YOU THAT I SHOULD BE THE KING OF THE RING AN’ THAT I CAN BEAT THIS JOKE. AN’ WHEN I’M DONE, I’M GONNA RAM IT DOWN YOUR THROATS!

*Tons of Heat*

Sydal laughs while the intense Benjamin continues to stare in to the crowd. The Gold Standard then turns quickly and nails Sydal with the microphone, right to the head. It sends Sydal down to the mat and Shelton looks like he’s going to explode. He drops his belt along with the microphone and urges his rival to get up. Slowly he does so, and as he gets to his knees, Shelton steps back and then connects with the Paydirt to a chorus of boos in the Blue Cross Arena. He stares down at Sydal for several seconds before picking up his belt and lifting it above his head as “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Me” hits once again.

*The Main Event*

Special Guest Referee – CM Punk
The Undertaker & Christian vs Edge & Chris Jericho

CM Punk called the match down the line exactly like he said he would earlier in the evening, and the team of Edge & Jericho worked together like they discussed too. They worked well and isolated Christian for the main part of the match until he was able to counter a Lionsault from Jericho by bringing his knees up in to Jericho's gut. He was then able to make it to his corner despite Jericho's best efforts to hold on to his boot. Taker came in all guns blazing and ignored Jericho's plea for mercy, nailing him with a series of clotheslines in the corner then a big boot to the face. Edge ensured the dead man couldn't get the three count and broke it up. Christian then tried to get at Edge but Punk held him back, allowing Edge to kick Taker in the groin and take him down with the Edgecution. He left the ring and allowed a crawling Jericho to cover Taker, but the dead man kicked out at 2. Jericho then tagged in Edge who immediately stalked Taker for a Spear, but he ran right in to a chokeslam grip. The Rated-R Superstar was saved by an oncoming Jericho which allowed him to send Taker back down with an Edge-O-Matic. Punk counted to 2 as Edge stood back up and proceeded to stomp the hell out of Taker before turning round and running at Christian and sending him down to the floor. He then climbed up to the summit and sent Taker down again with a missile dropkick, only to get another 2 count. As he got back up, Christian slipped in the ring and speared his brother down to the mat.

Punk got him back in his corner, and Taker was able to tag in the Canadian and allow him to unload on his brother. He went up top straight away and connected with a Frog Splash, but Edge got his shoulder up at 2. Captain Charisma urged his brother up, but he had to deal with Jericho first and eventually did, clotheslining him over the top to the outside. As he turned round though at ran out at his brother, Edge reacted quickly to hit a spinning wheel kick. He then ran and dropkicked Taker off the apron, who hit the steps on the way down. Jericho was back up on the outside and grabbed a steel chair, then slid it in the ring. Punk didn't see it as Christian made it up to his knees while Edge grabbed the chair. Punk turned round and saw Edge holding it, then grabbed it from him. Edge was furious and yelled at Punk and continued to do so. Punk then snapped and blasted him right in the skull to a huge pop. He then dropped the chair as Jericho slid back in the ring, but Christian was back up and took him down with the Killswitch before covering Edge while a hot Punk counted the fall to give Christian & Taker the win. Taker came round on the outside as Punk raised Christian's arm in the air for a second before letting go and leaving the ring to collect his world title. Captain Charisma watched him leave, and Punk turned back round as he walked up the ramp with Christian & then Taker staring at him as he looked back at the challengers to his throne to bring Smackdown to a close.


Winners: The Undertaker & Christian by pinfall @ 13.41.

”WWE Superstars” Results
Saturday 12th July 2008
Kay Yeager Coliseum, Wichita Falls, Texas





*Video Recap*

>The Empire's WWE debut on Smackdown 15 days ago and attacking MVP in the ring, followed up by MVP's response a week later and telling them to be at Superstars last week.
>MVP then calling them out last week and The Empire (Drew McIntyre, Stu Sanders & Katie Lee) responding by calling him a bad role model for kids across the world and attacking him again.


Match #1
Tommy Dreamer & Super Crazy vs. The Empire (w/Katie Lee)

McIntyre & Sanders were fairly dominant and very impressive, working well to isolate Crazy and halt any momentum Dreamer managed to get going with Katie Lee also getting in on the act, distracting Dreamer and grabbing his boot at one point as he hit the ropes, allowing Sanders to recover and take Dreamer down with a huge boot as the former ECW Champion then turned back and ran at him. Sanders then tagged in McIntyre and sent Crazy flying off the apron to the floor below as McIntyre finished Dreamer with swinging side slam into a sit-out facebuster.

Winners: The Empire.


Chavo Guerrero was interviewed by Josh Matthews and asked how he felt about Tazz making his match at The Great American Bash with Ron Killings tomorrow night a streetfight. Chavo asked Josh whether he assumed that the change favoured Killings, because if he did he was wrong. Guerrero explained that he's just as tough as Killings and that he had to fight on the streets of Mexico as a kid, and that he showed Killings on Smackdown the night before just what he's capable of when there are no rules in place. He then said that being handcuffed and at his mercy as well as what he was going to do against Eugene later on is just a preview of what he has in store for Killings tomorrow night at The Bash, and he then told Josh to come find him after he destroys Killings and ask him again whether he thinks the streetfight is right up Killings' street or his, because he sure as hell won't be able to ask Killings.

>Raw Rebound<

>Eric Bischoff suspending Triple H for attacking a referee after the show went off the air the week before and laying down the law.
>Triple H being escorted out of the arena and then being confronted by Ric Flair & Batista before Batista got Flair to back down.
>Bischoff rumbling The Corporation & William Regal in conspiring against him, resulting in Bischoff firing Regal.
>Regal going to The Corporation and telling them that he'd been fired, leaving them to come to a decision that they needed a quick and effective plan to deal with Bischoff.
>Randy Orton going to Bischoff and demanding a shot at the WWE Championship, seemingly threatening him in the process with Bischoff then giving him a shot at Batista but in non-title action.
>Orton's match with Batista and the surprise return of Triple H who blasted Batista & Flair with a sledgehammer.
>The camera cutting to the back and showing a bloody and laid out Eric Bischoff with help rushing to him while The Game smiled in the ring at the sight of Bischoff laying helpless.



*Video Recap*

>From Smackdown last night and Chavo Guerrero's attack on Ron Killings after his match and handcuffing him to the rope with Tazz then announcing that their match at The Great American Bash will be a streetfight, ending with Chavo spitting on Killings.


Match #2
Eugene (w/Goldust) vs. Chavo Guerrero

Chavo started the match on fire, being very aggressive in working the corners initially and pounding Eugene with some stiff shots to the head and body. He was warned by the referee and got both distracted and annoyed by Goldust telling the ref to deal with his aggression. Eugene took advantage and got back in to the match until Chavo dodged a People's Elbow and followed up with the Three Amigo's and then a brainbuster. He then went on top and hit the Frog Splash to pick up a solid victory going in to The Great American Bash. Just as Chavo stood up and got his arm raised, Ron Killings ran down the aisle and towards the ring. Chavo turned in time and then urged him in, but as Killings slid in and rose to his feet, Chavo turned to the side and escaped under the bottom rope, leaving Killings fuming in the ring and calling for Chavo to get back in, but The Mexican Warrior backed up to the ramp looking fairly cool and amused at frustrating Killings.

Winner: Chavo Guerrero.


Ted DiBiase & Maryse were interviewed by Todd Grisham with Grisham asking him how he felt about facing Smackdown's Elijah Burke in a matter of moments. DiBiase said the match was the last thing on his mind since Eric Bischoff brought his dad back to Raw and made his life hell by doing so. Grisham quickly cut in and asked DiBiase that based on his frustration with his dad being brought in whether he was responsible in taking that frustration out on Eric Bischoff. DiBiase was livid and so was Maryse, and it was the Million Dollar Woman that spoke up for her boyfriend. She told Grisham that he should be careful about what he was saying as they could throw a lawsuit his way and take everything he has even though she doubts it’s that much. DiBiase Jr stared right at Grisham and told him he should listen to Maryse before walking out of the shot, followed by his angry girlfriend, leaving a worried Grisham behind with a lot to think about.

>The main event tag team match with The Undertaker & Christian facing Chris Jericho & Edge, refereed by CM Punk, ending in Punk grabbing a chair away from the irate Edge (that was placed in the ring by Jericho) and blasting The Rated-R Superstar in the head with it, allowing Christian to pick up the win.
>Punk leaving the ring with his world title and staring back at Christian & The Undertaker.





Match #3
Elijah Burke (w/Layla) vs. Ted DiBiase Jr (w/Maryse)

DiBiase's anger from Monday night and earlier on was obvious, and Burke took advantage of the unusually erratic display by taking charge of the match after a flying shoulder tackle and rolling german suplexes. Burke whipped DiBiase in to the ropes later on, but his Raw opponent kicked him square in the head after Burke lowered it. However as DiBiase turned back and ran the ropes again, Burke reacted well to lift him off his feet and plant him with a lifting sit-down spinebuster, but DiBiase kicked out at 2 to the obvious relief of Maryse on the outside. Burke was then able to hit the Elijah Express, but as he was getting ready to set DiBiase up for the Elijah Experience, Dolph Ziggler made his way down to the ring and split his attention between Burke & Layla, winking at Burke's girlfriend. Burke lost his focus and let go of DiBiase to walk over to the ropes and tell Ziggler to get away from Layla, but he protested his innocence, earning a slap from Layla that amused Burke. Ziggler was furious, but his mood turned as DiBiase sneaked up behind Burke, spun him round and took him down with Dream Street to pick up the victory. DiBiase wasn't in the mood to celebrate and left the ring straight away with Maryse as Ziggler laughed at Layla going to Burke's aid, and neither were pleased with his presence as Superstars drew to a close.

Winner: Ted DiBiase Jr.

WWE Presents
The Great American Bash

Sunday July 13, 2008
Live From the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York


>The Preview<



____________________________

>The Card<



CM Punk was celebrating heavily after Judgment Day as any first time World Champion would do. However, he may not be celebrating by the time the 30 minutes are up in the Scramble match when he defends the World Heavyweight Championship at The Great American Bash tomorrow night.

He certainly doesn’t have the odds in his favour as he will be defending against not just one challenger, but four. The Straight Edge Superstar will battle to defy the odds against The Undertaker and the dead man’s biggest critic, Chris Jericho. It doesn’t end there as he has to contend with the challenge of rival siblings in Christian & Edge. The Canadian brothers have been at each other’s throats ever since Captain Charisma made his return to the WWE in The Cutting Edge on the same night Punk captured the gold. With Jericho battling to prove The Undertaker is past his best, the dead man will be going all out to prove the third Canadian in this match wrong also and that he is as dangerous as he ever has been.

Punk didn’t do himself any favours on Smackdown last night when he was the special guest referee in a tag team match featuring all four men who will be going all out to take his title away from him in Uniondale tomorrow evening. Jericho & Edge looked to cheat their way to victory, bringing a steel chair in to the ring. Punk did as he said would in calling the match down the line and grabbed the chair from The Rated-R Superstar. Unsurprisingly, Edge wasn’t happy and got in the champion’s face, resulting in the steel getting in to his thanks to Punk. That allowed Christian the chance to pin his brother and give him and The Undertaker the victory. Will either of those men be victorious come The Bash? Will Punk regret crossing Edge & Jericho, or will he defy the odds and leave New York still the World Champion?




The Gold Standard has it all to do if he is to hold on to his United States Championship when he takes on a man he has never beaten, and more importantly, the man who defeated him to become the 2008 King of the Ring last month in Matt Sydal.

If it wasn’t personal before that ill fated night for Shelton Benjamin, it sure was after, and he sure as hell made Sydal know that too a matter of days later. Benjamin blindsided Sydal during the King’s crowning ceremony, attacking him from behind with the royal sceptre, putting Sydal on the sidelines for a couple of weeks. When Sydal came back eight days ago, we saw a different side to him as he went right after the United States Champion. Shelton got away that night, but Sydal found his man last night on Smackdown, but kept his cool this week. The same couldn’t be said for Benjamin as he had to listen to the ‘new’ Sydal. The King of the Ring said that for the first time in his career, The Gold Standard has made business personal. With his new found confidence in winning the King of the Ring as well as frustrating the hell out of Benjamin, can Sydal go one step further and take the United States title from him too?




If things are now personal between Benjamin & Sydal, you need a whole new word to describe the rivalry between The UK Pack & The Masters of the Mat as they prepare to do battle in their Final Encounter.

Such is the hatred between the two teams, Tazz has ensured that this will be the last match they will ever go head-to-head in, even if Paul Burchill & Harry Smith lose the titles. That’s how intense things have gotten, and you have to imagine it’s only going to get worse when they meet in the ring tomorrow night in the Nassau Coliseum. Going back two months when Chris Masters & Charlie Haas attacked the champions before their match at Judgment Day and broke Burchill’s wrist, you’d have thought that would’ve given the challengers the edge. However it proved to be their undoing as Burchill’s cast proved decisive in the Englishman retaining their titles. Fast forward two months to yesterday afternoon, and the Masters of the Mat struck again just days before their title match.

This time they attacked Smith in the hallway outside the champion’s hotel room and stole the tag team titles before goading them later on in the evening, protected by no less than six security guards. That didn’t stop the Brits confronting the smug challengers at all, and they made it crystal clear that they can’t wait to get their hands on Masters & Haas. And just when you thought that Masters couldn’t sink any lower, he told Smith that their title reign would soon be dead, just like his late father, “The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith. Smith had to be held back by Burchill, but that didn’t stop them going after their rivals in the parking lot later on. Security managed to keep them at bay and eventually laid in to the champions, much to the amusement of Masters & Haas. Will they still be smiling once The Final Encounter is over? Only time will tell.




History has shown that it doesn't take much to get Johnny Jeter hot and bothered, but Michael Shane well and truly pushed him over the edge several weeks back.

The Cruiserweight Champion had already gotten under Jeter's skin after telling him a few home truths, but what came next surprised everyone, especially Jeter. The angry young superstar was shocked to receive a visit from his mom, who had just separated from his dad. She just wanted to spend some time with her not so pleased son, and maybe now he wishes he'd acted differently that night. However on the same night, he defeated Michael Shane in a non-title match that would see Jeter all but earn himself a shot at the gold. As Jeter and his mom, Louisa were about to leave the building, they stumbled across Shane, and it was clear that there was some serious sexual tension between the Cruiserweight Champion & Jeter's mom.

With Jeter in a huff, his mom opted to take up Shane's invitation of a bite to eat, much to the anger of her son. Jeter was furious and he soon showed Shane just how much, attacking him eight days ago and announcing that they would meet for the title at The Bash. He went on to claim this week that the title means more to him than his mom, and that he will do everything he can to take it from Shane. The defending champion in tomorrow night's clash stormed the ring after Jeter's match last night but didn't return the favour for the sneak attack seven days earlier. He made sure Jeter knew he was serious about keeping the title, and then he kicked Louisa to the curb, explaining it was time to get serious. There's no doubt it's serious, and there can only be one winner. Just who will it be?




Eyebrows were raised when both Mickie James & Beth Phoenix were drafted to Smackdown in the draft after WrestleMania as divas were a rare breed on Friday nights at the time. That certainly isn't the case right now, just 24 hours before we crown the first ever WWE Diva's Champion.

When Mia Rain came to Smackdown, The Glamazon's eyebrows certainly were raised. It was evident that Rain wasn't intimidated by her, and she went out of her way to show Phoenix just that. The Glamazon was seemingly threatened by Rain's presence on the blue brand, and finally tomorrow night, we will see the two ruthless divas meet one-on-one for the first time ever. Rain's arrival added significantly to the competition of the diva's division, leading to Tazz's decision to introduce an exclusive diva's title to Friday nights.

He also decided that the first ever holder of the title would have to win an Elimination Series that would feature the best Smackdown has to offer. The Glamazon booked her spot in the final eight days ago when she eliminated Gail Kim, and Rain joined her by defeating Mickie James last night after a hard fought battle and a heavy assist from Michelle McCool. Now we're down to two and two will become one tomorrow in Uniondale. Is Rain going to end The Glamazon's dominance, or will Phoenix show her first hand why she's one of the most feared diva's in WWE history?




Ron Killings has been looking forward to this night for a long, long time, and finally he will get his hands on Chavo Guerrero tomorrow night when they face off in a Streetfight.

Chavo has gone out of his way to get Killings fired, constantly bringing up Killings' past and stating his opinion that Killings doesn't deserve to be in the WWE. After going to Linda McMahon and pleading his case for Killings' dismissal, he then turned to Tazz to do the 'right thing' and sack him. Neither would budge, and nor would Killings, standing firm and up to The Mexican. Things took a turn for the worse when they went head to head for a place in the King of the Ring with Chavo furious that a 'convict' could be given the chance to become King. Guerrero ensured that didn't happen and took that opportunity away from Killings, using a steel chair to earn himself a place in the eight man tournament.

He lost out in his next match, and Killings took great satisfaction in that by winding Chavo up about his failure. To no surprise, Chavo reacted angrily, setting up a challenge from Killings and an acceptance from The Mexican. It looked like Killings could relax and focus on the task in hand. That was until last night when Chavo sent him a message that could end up biting him in the behind. Killings defeated Orlando Jordan last night, but before he could celebrate, Chavo seized the chance to gain an advantage going in to The Bash. He attacked him with a chair yet again before handcuffing him to the ropes. Tazz brought a halt to the vicious attack and announced that their match this weekend would now be a Streetfight. Is that going to favour Killings, or not?




It's been a rough couple of weeks for Jack Swagger after what's been an impressive start to his WWE career, all thanks to Bobby Lashley.

To make things even worse, it could well continue tomorrow night. Up until last night, Swagger remained undefeated and had a 2-0 record over Lashley, courtesy of a count out victory and another by disqualification. It was the disqualification win last week that infuriated the young gun as he needed to pin Lashley or make him tap out in order to gain an extra place in the Scramble match. Last night, he demanded Tazz put him in the World Championship match, but that's not what happened. Not by a long shot!

Tazz was keen to give Swagger the chance to beat Lashley, and on more than one occasion, forcing him to compete in a Best of 5 Series. The first match took place there and then, catching Swagger off guard and putting Lashley 1-0 up in the series, as well as making Swagger's previous record disappear. If Swagger is going to turn things around, he has a lot of work to do, starting at The Bash tomorrow evening. A win for Lashley would put him firmly in the driving seat. Can he follow up his victory from last night and all but end the series, or will Swagger even it up?
