>Headlines!<

>J-Red & McCool Eye Up Some Gold!<



Last night on Smackdown we saw two new number one contenders crowned and next week J-Red will battle it out with Johnny Jeter for the Cruiserweight Championship after winning a Battle Royal in which he eliminated his own mentor, Chavo Guerrero to earn that match with Jeter watching on from ringside.

Red’s impressed pretty much everyone bar his mentor since debuting on Smackdown, and having already defeated Chavo previously, the rookie has the chance to earn himself some championship gold next Friday night. How on earth will Chavo react if his rookie comes out on top and becomes the new Cruiserweight Champion?

Michelle McCool may well have earned herself a shot at Beth Phoenix’s Diva’s Championship, but she did so in a far less impressive manner than J-Red. The former schoolteacher manipulated her way in to getting herself a chance to take on The Glamazon by challenging her rookie, Nikki Roxx to a match with a potential title shot waiting in the wings if she could defeat Beth’s rookie. The stipulations didn’t end there as she demanded Beth leave ringside while her own rookies remained there the whole time, eventually playing a big role in her subsequent victory.

Now she has herself a title shot, will she try and manipulate her way to the title or will The Glamazon ensure the games end there?

Monday Night Raw Preview
Monday 20th October 2008
Live from the TEE Center
Augusta, Georgia





Last week’s show ended on a highly controversial note when Mr. McMahon & John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield went about their mission on getting revenge on The Big Show and ending his WWE career. However they weren’t satisfied with just blind siding the former Corporation member and Mr. McMahon spat in the giant’s face. We knew this was personal beforehand and with so much at stake at the Survivor Series you have to wonder how The Big Show will react this week when he arrives in Augusta, Georgia with just under three weeks to go until his Loser Leaves Town Hell in a Cell match with J.B.L. Make sure you tune in to find out just how he does react.

Batista & Triple H’s personal problems also escalated last week with The Game finally confronting the WWE Champion on the rumours he’s dating his wife, Stephanie. Not that the furious Triple H believed him. However they were both given a stern reminder of what’s really at stake at the Survivor Series by Randy Orton when all three former Evolution team-mates collide for the WWE Championship. The Legend Killer’s not held back in letting everyone know how much he wants to get his hands back on the WWE Championship, letting Triple H know exactly how much he blames him for costing him the chance to win it back at Unforgiven last month. With Orton the only one seemingly focused on the WWE title will he be the one to leave Survivor Series with the title he craves so badly, and will The King of Kings accept Batista’s word that there’s nothing going on between him & Stephanie? Is that indeed the case? Who knows? We might find out the answers to some of those questions this week live from the TEE Center.

The opportunity that Ted DiBiase has wanted and claims he deserves is just around the corner with most believing he has no chance of overcoming the obstacle in his way in the shape of The Undertaker at the Survivor Series. However for the second straight week he was able to get the better of The Dead-Man, along with the help of his rookie, Ezekiel Jackson to leave him flat on his back in the middle of the ring. Maybe he’s not out of his depth after all and he is capable of defeating the phenom, but if history tells us anything, hell hath no fury like The Dead-Man scorned.

We found out last week from Eric Bischoff that at the Survivor Series, Raw & Smackdown will collide in a traditional elimination match and that leading Team Raw will be the Intercontinental Champion, Sheamus. The Celtic Warrior has yet to taste defeat since joining the WWE this summer and seems to be the perfect choice by Raw’s Head of Authority, but Bischoff has also decided to put Sheamus’s rival, Carlito on the team too. They were about to go at it in an impromptu title match until Bischoff put a roadblock in front of them and let them know of his plans. Can Sheamus & Carlito co-exist for the sake of Team Raw? They will however be joined by another Raw superstar when two more lock horns this week for a place on the team in John Morrison & Zack Ryder. Will it be The Shaman of Sexy or The Long Island Loudmouth who’ll be joining them at the Survivor Series?

We understand that ‘Mr. Hollywood’ The Miz has an announcement to make this week. Once again we saw him travel to Smackdown on Friday night where he watched Dolph Ziggler in action and escort him backstage afterwards. What was that all about? Does it have anything to do with the elimination match facing him at Survivor Series against Shawn Michaels’ team? Maybe we’ll see The Heartbreak Kid travel to Raw again like last week when he came to Kofi Kingston’s rescue, even offering Kofi a place on his team for the Survivor Series? Will Kofi have an answer for him? Tune in to find out.

The final spot for a shot at the World Tag Team titles was up for grabs last week when Matt Hardy & Gregory Helms met Rey Mysterio & Mystico in the second semi final in the tournament to crown new champions. With their place already booked in the final at the Survivor Series, Christopher Daniels & Kaval got a closer look of the action and watched on as their competitors fought to a double count out. They were then left stunned as Eric Bischoff announced that both Hardy & Helms and Mysterio & Mystico will join them in the final in a triple threat match for the right to be the new World Tag Team Champions. How do they all feel about? Maybe we’ll find out tomorrow night.

There’ll be a few other teams battling it out this week. After a couple of confrontations last week Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig will take on JTG & Homicide while Gail Kim along with her rookie, Shantelle Taylor will meet The Bella Twins.

With Survivor Series rapidly approaching, make sure you catch Raw this week for what is likely to be an eventful show in Augusta!

Monday Night Raw
Monday 20th October 2008
Live from the TEE Center
Augusta, Georgia





*Video Recap*
From Last Week

Non-Title Match
Batista vs. Zack Ryder

As both men made it to their feet, Ryder was fired in to the ropes and fell victim to a spinning side slam. He toughed it out and picked himself back up, walking right in to a spear to the delight of the crowd. Ryder got his shoulder up to the surprise of the crowd but Batista wasn’t done there and sealed the deal with a spinebuster followed by a ferocious Batista Bomb to a massive pop, picking up the victory over the brave Big Z. He lifted his title aloft to an almighty cheer from the crowd while getting his arm raised, but then out of nowhere “The Game” blasted out and Triple H stormed out in to the arena, pacing down the ramp and in to the ring as Ryder rolled out of the ring and out of shot. The stunned WWE Champion watched his rival the whole way, and as The Game entered the ring he wasted no time in getting in Batista’s face, going nose to nose with him with a face like thunder. Eventually he stepped back and went to get a microphone with Batista still watching his every step as the music cut, allowing the intense Triple H the chance to get things off his chest.

Triple H: I’m going to ask you this just once Dave and you better tell me the truth. . . what the hell’s going on between you an’ my wife?

The crowd watch on intently as HHH glares right at the un-intimidated Animal.

Triple H:
If there’s something going on Dave, you better tell me right now. It’s bad enough you’ve got your hands on my title, now you want my wife too. . .

Batista snaps and grabs the microphone from him, surprising the intense Triple H.

Batista:
. . . YOU WANNA KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON WITH ME AN’ STEPH?. . . Nothing. That’s what’s going on, not that it’s got anything t’ do with you since you walked out on her an’ your kids, all f’ what? A title? This title means a lot t’ me, a hell of a lot, but not more than my family. You, you’re a selfish son of a bitch and you don’t deserve Stephanie. All I’m doing is looking out for her an’ being a friend because her so called husband’s treated her like crap.

“I hear voices in my head. . .”

‘The Viper’ Randy Orton
walks out to the stage calmly along with his rookie, Darren Young by his side. They’re met by a largely negative reception with some cheers mixed in, and they’re both in their ring gear, getting the full attention of Triple H & Batista. They look up at Orton, also wearing one of his trademark T-shirts as his music stops.

Randy Orton:
To be perfectly honest Hun’er, Dave’s right. You walked out on Stephanie. She’s fair game.

Triple H: If I were you Randy I’d shut my mouth. It’s got nothing to do with Batista and it sure as hell has nothing to do with you.

Randy Orton: Actually Hun’er you’re wrong. It became my business when you screwed me out of the W-W-E Championship at Unf’given. I had it in the bag until you came along. You had no right being there, but at Survivor Series you won’t stop me taking back what’s mine, not yours. No one will be able to stop me taking back the W-W-E title. . . You’ve made your bed Hun’er, now you have to lie in it. You have to accept that you’re not getting your wife back, and more importantly you have to accept that at the Survivor Series you won’t be getting the W-W-E title back. Even you Dave have to accept that only one of us will walk out champion and that’s me.

“Voices” plays again to more heat as Orton looks down intently at his former Evolution team mates, who both stare back at him and then each other as Orton & Young turn round and walk to the back.


***

The Big Show & Justin Gabriel vs. Randy Orton & Darren Young

Boos rang out, and as Orton slowly got to his knees, Show started to stir, lifting his head up off the mat, pissing Orton off big time. The Legend Killer was livid and stared right at Show, watching him all the way up and then looking to pounce with another RKO, but Show countered and shoved Orton in to the ropes. Orton hit them and held on to them, shaking his head at his opponent. Show didn’t look happy at all and ran at him, but Orton raised his boot up in to Show’s upper torso, sending him back pedalling. Show turned round and saw Orton run at him, but The World’s Largest Athlete countered again with a sidewalk slam.

The fans were cheering and Gabriel was leaning over the ropes as the ref counted the fall, but Orton just about got his shoulder up before the ref’s hand came down for the third time. Show took it on the chin but was focused on finishing the job, standing up and stalking Orton, sizing him up for the deadly knockout punch. Just as Orton made it up to his knees, a ton of heat broke out as we cut to Vince McMahon & John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield walking down the ramp with their eyes locked firmly on The Big Show. The big man turned round and so did Gabriel. The rookie was brave and ran right at them, giving them no chance but to fight back at him.

They overpowered him and eventually tossed him in to the security wall, giving the ref no chance but to disqualify Orton & Young. Show was furious and was about to leave the ring when Orton crept up behind him and turned him round to plant him with another RKO. It didn’t matter though, although it did to Orton as he shot up and glared down coldly at the fallen giant with Young joining him in the ring as the boos rang out. Orton then turned his head and left the ring, followed by his rookie to walk past Vince & JBL who both coolly entered the ring by the steps. They removed their jackets and walked towards the squirming seven-footer. Vince ordered his son to grab him, and he did.

He held Show on his knees as Vince got right in his face and then slapped him across the chops, getting more boos from the Dayton crowd. He then backed away and gestured at JBL to move. His son followed his orders and rolled up his sleeves, urging Show to get up, and as the big man managed to make it back up, JBL hit the ropes and came back to nail him with the Clothesline From Hell to a deafening amount of heat inside the arena. Gabriel was coming round up on the outside as a scarily intense Vincent Kennedy McMahon walked over to Show’s body and spat down on him with Layfield watching on, showing no remorse at all for his and his father’s actions. “No Chance in Hell” hit to more heat as Vince looked up remorselessly in to the stands, as did JBL as the curtain came down on this week’s Raw.


*Cut to the Arena*


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


Jim Ross:
Good evening ev’ryone an’ welcome to Monday Night Raw, live t’night from the Tee Center in Augusta Georgia. We’re just three weeks away from the Survivor Series an’ King if the last couple of weeks are anything t’ go by it’s going t’ be one hell of a night.

Jerry Lawler: Oh it sure is J-R. Just imagine what it’s gonna be like when Batista, Triple H an’ Randy Orton collide for the W-W-E Championship an’ when The Undertaker gets his hands on Ted DiBiase, especially after what happened last week.

Jim Ross: Hang on King. I’m hearin’ there’s some kind of situation brewing in the parking lot. Have we got a camera back there?


*Cut to the Parking Lot*


The Big Show in his casual clothes is pacing back & forth in the parking lot with a face like thunder with his rookie, Justin Gabriel looking concerned.

Justin Gabriel:
Come on Show, let’s just go inside.

Show stops and just stares at his rookie.

The Big Show:
I know you’ve not been in this business long J but last week Vince spat in my face. He spat in my face. No one, an’ I mean no one spits in my face, you got that? I’m not going anywhere until that son of a bitch gets here, steps out of his limo, an’ then. . . then I’m gonna make what I did t’ Shane look like nothing. Then an’ only then am I goin’ anywhere.

Gabriel doesn’t know what to do, looking very worried by his mentor who turns round and paces back & forth again.


*Cut to the Arena*


*The Opening Contest*
Winner Joins Team Raw at Survivor Series
John Morrison w/Melina vs. Zack Ryder


As the two men made their entrances, J.R. & The King informed everyone watching at home that the winner would be joining Sheamus & Carlito on Team Raw to take on Team Smackdown at the Survivor Series in just under three weeks. Both men were up for it, and with the crowd behind him it was Morrison who started off the better, getting the crowd going even more. Ryder didn’t let him have it all his own way though at all and came back firing, making Melina a little uncomfortable on the outside. The former Raw host was very intense, shouting out at the booing fans on a couple of occasions, and after doing so while Morrison attempted to get back up behind him, he let his opponent back in to it.

The Monday Night Delight shot up and caught him as he walked towards him out of nowhere with a super kick. Ryder showed some resilience and got his shoulder up at two, surprising the hell out of his opponent. As the match entered its final stages, it was nip & tuck with Ryder showing some real spirit. He managed to dodge a springboard enzuigiri and thought he had the match won when he caught Morrison with a two handed twisting neckbreaker. Melina was relieved to see Morrison get his shoulder up but the Long Island Loudmouth wasn’t. He gave the ref a mouthful and stood up in a huff, then backed away and watched Morrison try and pick himself back up.

As Morrison then struggled up, Ryder ran at him for the Rough Ryder. JoMo ducked it and Ryder hit the mat, and as Ryder then made it back up to his feet, Morrison ran past him in to the ropes and this time connected with a springboard enzuigiri to a big pop. Ryder was out and Morrison pulled him closer to the ropes before connecting with Starship Pain to secure the victory and a place on Team Raw at the Survivor Series. The fans gave him a decent pop as he stood up to get his arm raised by the referee. He then left the ring, got a hug from Melina and headed back up the ramp, posing at the top looking very pleased indeed as the angry Long Island Loudmouth sat up, staring up at the smiling Monday Night Delight.

Winner: John Morrison by pinfall.


*Commercial Break*


Sheamus is in the hallway with the Intercontinental Championship draped over his shoulder. Looking proud and incredibly smug talking to a backstage worker, Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig in their ring gear walk up towards him and the worker leaves them to it.

Sheamus:
Evenin’ fellas, what can I do f’ ya?

Cody Rhodes: Well it’s more of what we can do f’ you. We saw that Eric Bischoff made you the Raw team captain against Smackdown at Survivor Series and we both said you were the best man f’ the job. . .

Sheamus: . . . Well thanks fellas but dat goes without sayin’.

Cody Rhodes: No doubt, you’re the best choice, only we thought we’d help you out. We’d love nothing more than to show ev’ryone what we can do and embarrass Smackdown at the same time. . .

Sheamus: . . . ‘kay I get what you’re sayin’ guys but d’ y’have any idea how many people I’ve had come an’ ask me if dey can be part of my team over de last week? I’m gonna tell y’what I told dem. I only want de best, an’ wit’ dat joke Carlito dat’s exactly what I’m gonna need.

Cody Rhodes: Trust me, we won’t disappoint. We’re more than capable, and just like you we’re going to dominate this show f’ years t’ come. You pick us Sheamus, I promise you won’t need anyone else.

Joe Hennig: He’s right, an’ like you said, with Carlito you need us.

Sheamus: Fellas you’ve made a strong case an’ I can feel how much y’want it. All I’m gonna say is, you want in at Survivor Series, go show me why I should pick ya.

Cody & Hennig turn & look at each other then back at Sheamus.

Cody Rhodes:
You got it, an’ like we said, we won’t let you down.

Sheamus: Let’s see if y’get de chance first.

Cody & Hennig mean business and they look at each knowing they have to impress and walk away with the smug Celtic Warrior watching them leave with a smug smile on his face.


*Cut to the Arena*


*Match #2*
Gail Kim & Shantelle Taylor vs. The Bella Twins


Just as the bell rung and Shantelle walked towards one of the Bellas, boos broke out in the stands and some of the fans stood up looking towards the stage. All four divas didn’t know what was going on and they turned to see the same huge black woman who attacked Kelly last week walking menacingly down the ramp. The behemoth entered the ring with all four divas fearing for their lives. Nikki & Brie fled to safety, pulling at each other to get out of the firing line. Poor Shantelle looked petrified, but her mentor entered the ring and stood up for her rookie. The mystery woman just stared coldly at them, unsettling Taylor mainly. Kim decided to fight fire with fire and threw a right forearm shot at her, not doing a single bit of damage except anger the monster who fired back with a shot of her own, knocking Kim down.

She then blocked a right from Taylor and sent her down to the mat with a headbutt. Gail unwisely made her way back up to her feet only to get fired in to the corner, then the monster charged in at her, crushing her with a ferocious splash, and as Gail staggered out in to her path, she was tossed about like a rag doll with an overhead belly to belly suplex. Taylor also picked herself back up, and she too regretted it as the dominant beast charged at her too, nailing her with a thunderous lariat to send the young blonde diva back down. She was then dragged up with ease before falling victim to a lifting double underhook facebuster.

Taylor lay there motionless as the behemoth stood up glaring down at her with no remorse whatsoever. She then glanced at Gail who was barely moving before staring menacingly in to the crowd with J.R. & King still questioning who the hell she is, and the camera then quickly cut to the back to show John Morrison and the stunned WWE Women’s Champion, Melina who caught sight of her first hand last week watching on a TV in the locker room. The shot went back to the ring as the monster left the ring to a ton of heat, walking back up the ramp without looking back while both Kim & Taylor squirming around on the canvas.

Result: No Contest.


*Video Promo*

The Intercontinental Champion & captain of Team Raw, Sheamus walks through the back smiling widely, seemingly on his way to the ring.


*Commercial Break*


The Big Show is still in the parking lot, standing still with his arms crossed, eyes focused straight ahead. His rookie, Justin Gabriel comes out to meet him along with Eric Bischoff also with him.

Eric Bischoff:
Show I know you’re not happy after last week and I get that but you’re wasting y’time. You can wait out here all night, it won’t make any diff’rence, they’re not here an’ they’re not coming.

Show shakes his head, not happy.

The Big Show:
I should’ve known. Why did I even think they’d show up?. . . Cowards!

Eric Bischoff: Listen t’ me big man, we know what Vince is like. This is what he wants. Don’t let him get to you.

The Big Show: He spat in my face.

Eric Bischoff: I know but why do you think he did it huh? He was banking on you getting all wound up like this an’ doing something stupid. Just wait until Survivor Series, then in Hell in a Cell you can do whatever the hell you want. You can let all this bottled up anger out then, an’ if you do you can make sure J-B-L won’t be here any night.

Justin Gabriel: He’s right, an’ when you do beat ‘im, what’s Vince got t’ stick around for? Nothing.

Eric Bischoff: Exactly. Beat J-B-L, you send him home f’good, then there’s Vince. As long as I’m here I have the power, not him, an’ I’m not going anywhere for a while.

It looks as if Show is taking in what they’re saying, a lot calmer now.

?:
SHOW!

Big Show, Gabriel & Bischoff turn round and see a backstage worker run towards them. He gets there and stops to take in some air for a couple of seconds.

The Big Show:
You want something?

Still gasping for air, the young looking man stands up straight with all eyes & ears on him.

Worker:
Yeah, we just got a call from your father-in-law. Your wife’s been taken t’ hospital. She’s been involved in some kind of accident. . .

The Big Show: What? Is she is okay?

Worker: We don’t know. All we know is she’s been taken to the hospital.

The Big Show: I’ve gotta get there.

Worker: Look we’ve changed your flight. It leaves in about half an hour an’ the airline knows what’s happened.

Eric Bischoff: You heard ‘im Show, just go.

He doesn’t need telling and runs towards his car in a panic, pulling it out his keys from his pockets.

Justin Gabriel:
I HOPE SHE’S OKAY SHOW.

Eric Bischoff: GIVE ME A CALL WHEN Y’GET THERE.

Gabriel & Bischoff show some serious concern as Show gets in his car, reverses out and flies out of the parking lot as the worker heads back inside. Bischoff turns to the South African who still looks very worried for his mentor’s wife.

Eric Bischoff:
She’ll be fine, don’t worry.

Justin Gabriel: I sure hope so.

They then casually turn round and walk back inside the arena.


*Cut to the Arena*


“It’s a shame that they lost their head. . .”

Looking extremely pleased for himself, the Intercontinental Champion, Sheamus walks out to the stage to a chorus of boos. The heat amuses him and he just carries on down the ramp with his title draped proudly over his shoulder.

Lilian Garcia:
Please welcome the W-W-E Intercontinental Champion and the captain for Team Raw at the Survivor Series. . . SHEA-MUS.

The Celtic Warrior enters the ring with a wide smile on his face before going to collect a microphone from Lilian Garcia. He then walks back in to the centre of the ring and his music stops, bringing out the boos even more, but they still don’t bother him one bit.

Sheamus:
Like she just said, whether you people like it or not you’re lookin’ at de captain of team Raw for de Survivor Series.

*Heat*

Sheamus: If f’ some reason you’re actually havin’ trouble wit’ dat den jus’ t’ink it t’rough f’ a second. Who else could possibly do a better job dan me? Not only am I de Intercontinental Champion, I’m de undefeated Intercontinental Champion. Dat means I’ve never lost a match. No one’s ever beaten me. What more could y’want? How many people in de locker room can say dat? Dare’s only one man f’ dis job and you’re lookin’ at ‘im.

*More Boos*

Sheamus: Dare’s a lot o’ people back dare who don’t get on wit’ Eric Bischoff, me included but de man had a tough decision t’ make an’ he made it, albeit an easy one but he still made it. He knows I’m the man f’ the job, an’ jus’ so y’know what dat job is people, it’s not just makin’ sure team Raw is successful at Survivor Series, it’s makin’ sure team Raw is dominant an’ embarrasses team Smackdown at de Survivor Series.

*Mixed*

Sheamus: An’ wit’ me in charge dare’s no doubt dat’s gonna happen, even wit’ Carlito we’re still gonna win, not dat we need ‘im or anyone else. I could beat Smackdown all by m’self. Don’t y’think it’s funny dat we don’t even know who’s on team Smackdown or anythin’ about dare team? Y’know, not dat I blame dem, I t’ink dare runnin’ scared of team Raw an’ more importantly me.

*Boos*

Sheamus: I’ve not been here all dat long but I’ve come t’rough ev’ry challenge put in my way an’ it’s just a matter of time before I’m holdin’ not just da Intercontinental Championship but de W-W-E Championship too.

*More Heat*

Sheamus: It’s gonna happen after I lead team Raw t; vict’ry in t’ree weeks. Like Bischoff said last week, if. . .when we beat Smackdown, it means good t’ings are gonna happen, an’ let’s face it, I’m unstoppable. I’m. . .

“I’m comin. . . no one can stop me, no one can hold me. . .”

To the shock of everyone in the arena, especially Sheamus, Smackdown duo, M.V.P. & Ron Killings walk out to the stage to a big pop. Sheamus can’t believe his eyes as he watches them walk down the ramp in a good mood, joking amongst themselves before entering the ring with M.V.P. holding a microphone. His music cuts and Sheamus looks pissed off to hear the crowd cheering, much to the amusement of the Smackdown boys on tour.

Sheamus:
I don’t know what de hell you fellas are doin’ but if you haven’t noticed I’m kind o’ in de middle of somethin’ here.

M.V.P.: Yeah we noticed, just like those people up there snorin’ away. Keep quiet an’ really listen dog, you’ll hear it.

Sheamus: Is dat some kind o’ joke? You tryin’ t’ be funny are y’fella? Well let me tell y’somethin’; you’re not. . .

M.V.P.: . . . I’m sorry y’didn’t like it but we’re actually here f’ a reason, an’ it ain’t t’ stop all these people fallin’ asleep listenin’ t’ you.

*Pop*

M.V.P.: See while we were tryin’ t’ stay awake back there we heard y’talkin’ ‘bout how Smackdown’s runnin’ scared of facin’ team Raw an’ of course you at Survivor Series, but in case you ain’t sure we ain’t Raw guys, we’re straight from Friday nights; we’re Smackdown guys.

*Pop*

M.V.P.: Now I can’t speak f’ the whole of Smackdown, but Sheamus we ain’t the least bit scared of you or Raw.

*More Cheers*

Sheamus: Well y’should be.

M.V.P.: Maybe but the deal’s this fella, you wanna know somethin’ bout what you’re up against at Survivor Series? Well look no further. An’ while we’re at it, you wanna know who our captain is? Here I am boys an’ girl. Look no further than M-V-P.

*Pop*

Sheamus: You’re havin’ a laugh right fella? You’re tellin’ me you two are de best Smackdown has t’ offer? It was only a few weeks ago I was watchin’ No Mercy an’ you guys embarrassed America in dat flag match, an’ if you’re seriously tellin’ me you’re my opposition, dat embarrassment will be nothin’ compared t’ the embarrassment you’ll have after de Survivor Series.

*Heat*

Killings doesn’t look too happy and asks MVP for the microphone, and Smackdown’s team captain hands it to him.

Ron Killings:
Y’wanna talk bout No Mercy huh? Fine. Yeah we were embarrassed alright, not just f’ us but f’ them. It was one bad night but it’s a night we ain’t ever gonna let happen, but y’know what they say right Sheamus? What don’t kill y’makes y’stronger an’ at Survivor Series we’re sure as hell gonna be stronger. You might be all that champ but if y’think f’ a minute y’can beat us all by y’self you’re gonna be in f’ a whole world o’ hurt.

*Pop*

Ron Killings: You ain’t gonna beat us all by y’self punk. The only thing you’re gonna do if y’keep runnin’ y’mouth is piss off ev’ryone on y’team. Us, we’ve got each other’s back no matter what. . .

Sheamus: . . . Good f’ you. I’m happy for ya but de fact remains Ron, I’m undefeated an’ still will be after I beat you an whatever else Smackdown losers y’have at de Survivor Series. It’s nothin’ personal fellas, it’s jus’ de way it is.

Ron Killings: Not personal huh? Well neither’s this.

Killings snaps and smashes Sheamus in the face with the microphone to a big pop. M.V.P. looks stunned by it but smiles as he sees Sheamus rolling around on the mat with the ticked off Killings staring down at him. Smackdown’s captain likes what he sees and steps towards Sheamus as the Intercontinental Champion moves up on to his knees. M.V.P. pulls him up and stomps him in the gut then sends him spiralling down with the Playmaker to another decent pop. He & Killings slap hands laughing and “I’m Comin’” plays again when Carlito & Eddie Colon run down the ramp and slide in to the ring with Sheamus writhing about on the mat.

The Puerto Ricans stare right at the Smackdown superstars who hold their hands up and back off, leaving the ring to the surprise of The Celtic Warrior as he sits up. He’s shocked to see Carlito standing there and his tormentor in recent weeks turns round and offers him hand up. Sheamus just stares at him in shock and then grabs Carlito’s hand who pulls him up but quickly lets go and slips behind him, BACKSTABBER! The crowd cheer again as Sheamus hits the deck again. Carlito & Eddie smirk, as do M.V.P. & Killings on the ramp as “Cool” plays with Carlito enjoying seeing Sheamus on the mat.



*Commercial Break*


Carlito & Eddie Colon
are walking through the back laughing & joking, but not for long as they suddenly stop and look a bit cautious. Eric Bischoff then walks towards them and he doesn’t look at all happy.

Carlito:
Hey boss. Ju okay?

Eric Bischoff: Don’t you okay me. What the hell are you doin’?

Carlito: Well boss we’re jus’ gonna go get somethin’ to eat if ju wanna come with us?

Eric Bischoff: Let me think about that. . . er no I’ll pass and so will you.

Carlito: Huh?

Eric Bischoff: After that stunt you’re not going anywhere. You should be grateful I’m not kicking you off the Survivor Series team, but if you pull anything else like that I’ve got no problem doing just that ‘cause if it’s a choice between you or Sheamus it’s Sheamus all day long.

Carlito: Hey, there’s no need f’ that boss. What just happened, dat was just a bit of fun.

Eric Bischoff: Fun? Is that what you call it? If my team loses t’ Smackdown at Survivor Series because of fun like that, I’m not gonna be happy an’ that’s an understatement. If I see anything else like that again you can f’get all about getting a shot at Sheamus or his Intercontinental title. In fact you’ll be lucky if you still have a job. As f’ t’night though I’m gonna put you through your paces, make sure you’re ready for all out war at Survivor Series an’ make sure you’re not tempted t’ do anything else stupid. Later on you’re gonna be in action, in action against Triple H. Good luck.

Bischoff turns round and paces up off the hall leaving a not so happy looking Carlito behind with his brother.

Carlito:
Damn, dat’s not cool.

The camera zooms on him looking a bit cautious to say the least as he ponders his match with Triple H.


*Cut to the Arena*


*Match #3*
JTG & Homicide vs. Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig


After last week’s run-in with Rhodes & Hennig, JTG & Homicide were pumped up for this one, and they wasted no time in letting them know it. They were very aggressive and beat the crap out of them in the early going, but the young duo put a stop to that with some typically cheap tactics. Homicide was all over Hennig, and after a facewash Homicide went up to the second rope. Cody didn’t waste a second in walking across the apron to distract him. JTG’s rookies took his eyes off of his opponent, proving to be a mistake as Hennig nailed him with a right hand to the gut. An angry Hennig then threw him down to the mat and then climbed up to the second rope himself before jumping off to drive his knee in to Homicide’s upper torso.

The Puerto Rican kicked out at two and Hennig then tagged in Cody with his mentor busting to get in on the action. Cody was too cocky for his own good and despite controlling Homicide initially, he found himself on the wrong end of a deserved beating when the rookie managed to counter a bulldog attempt, turning round as Rhodes came back off the ropes to run at him and nail him with the West Brooklyn Lariat. The crowd & JTG enjoyed that. Hennig didn’t though, and as the match went on it was JTG & Homicide who were on top and after a sit down jawbreaker from JTG on Hennig, the fans thought they had it. Hennig had different ideas and got his shoulder up at two. JTG was shocked initially but shrugged it off quickly to try and finish the job.

He urged his opponent to get back up but Cody put a road block in his way, entering the ring to distract him. It worked as Hennig was allowed time to recover, but Homicide wasn’t happy. He & JTG went after Cody, but the referee tried to block them off, and as Hennig stood up, he pushed JTG in to the back of his rookie before rolling him up for a cover, holding on to his pants in the process as the ref made the count. JTG kicked out at two and Homicide stood up, not happy with Hennig, grabbing him and spinning him round. The ref was right on him and got in his way again, ordering him back on to the apron. Cody saw an opportunity and helped his rookie out to join him in the ring to double team JTG while Homicide flipped out trying to let the ref know what was going on.

After stomping all over JTG, Hennig pulled him up and Rhodes took him down with Cross Rhodes. The fans were booing like mad and Homicide lost it, pushing past the referee to run at them, knocking Cody down with a clothesline only for Hennig to toss him out of the ring between the ropes before going back to JTG to make a cover, picking up the win to a large amount of boos from the angry crowd. Cody sat up with a smug smile on his face before standing up to get his arm raised with his partner & rookie. They were both looking smug as the boos continued and the livid Homicide sat up on the floor. They both took great pleasure in laughing at him from the ring, raising their arms again looking very proud of themselves.

Winners: Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig by pinfall.

Boos filter through from the arena as Ted DiBiase (dressed for action) walks through the back with Maryse and his rookie, Ezekiel Jackson.


*Commercial Break*


Batista is in the production area on his cell phone and the WWE Champion in his street clothes tonight with his title is resting against one of the huge production boxes.

Batista:
Alright sweetheart, I’ll see you soon. Love you, bye.

Batista snaps his cell shut just as Randy Orton & Darren Young (also in their casual gear) walk towards him, quickly changing The Animal’s mood.

Batista:
Great, what d’ you want Randy?

Randy Orton: Let me guess huh Dave, Stephanie right?

Batista: Not that it’s any of your business but actually it was my daughter, and like I said last week there’s nothing going on with me an’ Steph. Why can’t you or Hun’er get that in t’ y’heads?

Randy Orton: Look Dave you’re right. Whatever’s going on or not going on between you an’ Stephanie, that’s not my business, but let me ask you something. I heard you say last week that you’re not prepared t’ trust me or a single word I say, an’ after all we’ve been through I get that but the fact is right now I’m being totally honest with you. I’ve told you an’ you know how much I want the W-W-E Championship back an’ frankly I don’t care if there is something going on between you an’ Steph. . .

Batista: . . . For the last time there’s not.

Randy Orton: Dave listen t’ me. You’re friends with her, you’re helping her out right?

Batista: Yeah an’ that’s all it is.

Randy Orton: Good because you know that her an’ Hun’er have pulled the wool over people’s eyes before t’ get what they want, an’ more often than not what he wants is the W-W-E title. How can you be so sure you can trust Stephanie? If nothing has happened that may well be for a reason. All I’m saying is Dave you don’t have t’ trust me but can you honestly say you can trust her? Think of what Hun’er has t’ gain by all this. He wants the W-W-E title as much as we do, maybe even more an’ we know what he’s done before t’ get it an’ keep it. Just think about that. He’d do whatever it takes t’ get either or both of us out of the picture an’ you know it, an’ we both know Steph’s not as innocent as she makes out. I mean how do you know their marriage is in trouble an’ this isn’t one big charade t’ put you in the middle an’ lower your guard huh Dave? Has it never crossed your mind that it may be a possibility? Just think about it Dave. That’s all I’m gonna say.

It looks like what Orton’s said is registering with Batista and The Viper sees that, then turns away with his rookie, leaving The Animal to ponder it some more. His cell phone rings again and he looks at the screen. He looks at it, clearly thinking about whether to answer it, and he does.

Batista:
Hey Steph, what’s up?

The camera zooms in on the WWE Champion and clearly his mind is all over the place.


*Video Recap*
From Last Week

“Priceless, baby I’m priceless. . .”

Out to the stage walks Ted DiBiase to a lot of heat from the Dayton crowd. He has Ezekiel Jackson & Maryse at either side of him, and not even the crowd are getting to DiBiase tonight as he walks down to the ring. He holds the rope down for Maryse and then follows her & Jackson in to the ring, then goes to get a microphone. He walks in to the centre of the ring and his music stops, bringing out the boos, and they still don’t bother him one bit as he stands there smirking in to the stands.


Ted DiBiase:
Let me stop you right there. After what I. . . we did to The Undertaker last week, you better get used to me coming out here and saying I told you so. I told Eric Bischoff and all of you last week that I wasn’t in the least bit intimidated by facing The Undertaker at the Survivor Series. I’m sure you all thought I was bluffing but look what happened. Seriously, look what happened.

DiBiase points to the tron and a recap from the end of last week’s main event between The Undertaker & Triple H is shown where DiBiase & Jackson jumped The Undertaker, ending with DiBiase nailing him with The Game’s sledgehammer.

We go back to the ring where DiBiase & Co are enjoying the footage.


Ted DiBiase:
Just in case any of you missed the show last week or didn’t believe what you were seeing, I knocked The Undertaker clean out. . . That’s right. I knocked him out and stood over him just as I will a month from now when I step in this ring with him at the Survivor Series. You may have laughed at my confidence last week but not now. I showed you that I had the courage to get in the ring with the dead man and take the fight to him. Not just that, I left him lying there for all of you, his adoring fans t’ see.

*More Boos*

Ted DiBiase: I just hope you get used to it. I’ve said ever since I came here that I would rise to the top and beat ev’ryone put in my way, and as much as you and ev’ryone back there doubted me, I’ve proved you wrong. You’ve given me the chance to prove my point that I can beat anybody put before me. At the Survivor Series I promise you I will defeat The Undertaker whether you like it or not, and then there’ll be no holding me back.

*Heat*

Ted DiBiase: Doubt me all you want, but look at what I’ve accomplished. Ev’rything I’ve said I was going to do, I’ve done. You need to realise that you have no choice to accept that I will headline this company for years t’ come, and that’s going to happen sooner rather than later. The Survivor Series gives me just the opportunity to make those who doubt me see it for themselves. However I have found a way for you to accept that I am what I say I am, that I am the real deal. I’ve come out here t’night to prove those final doubters wrong, by doing something no one ever does. I came out here to do something beyond the realms of bravery, something that will show you I have the courage to take on any challenge. . . I came here t’night to call out The Undertaker.

*Big Pop*

Ted DiBiase: I’m not playing around. I mean it. I came here to call out the dead man and I’m calling him out right now.

*More Cheers*

DiBiase looks like he means it and turns to face the stage, as do Jackson & Maryse.

Ted DiBiase:
What d’ you say ‘taker? Are you coming out or not? I’m not going anywhere. I’ve got all night dead man.

DiBiase stands & waits, psyching himself up for Taker’s arrival, if he decides to answer the challenge.

*GONG*

Out go the lights to a huge roar inside the arena.

“Rest in Peace”

The Undertaker steps out in to the arena through the blistering smoke to an enormous pop as DiBiase & Jackson prepare for his arrival, getting ready for battle, stepping back and DiBiase rolls up his sleeves. Taker slowly walks down the ramp menacingly, glaring coldly at DiBiase & Jackson as they psyche themselves up in the ring. The Dead-Man climbs up the steps and the lights come back on to a deafening cheer as the phenom removes his hat from his head, rolling his eyes in to the back of his head. Maryse is almost sickened by it, and Taker locks his eyes on DiBiase and his rookie as he takes off his jacket, placing it on the ropes before stepping through them. The mentor & rookie waste no time and go right after him, charging at him and clubbing him across the upper body.

DiBiase instructs Jackson to fire him in to the opposite corner and he does so, then follows in for a clothesline, but Taker steps out and lifts his elbow up in to the side of his head. The crowd cheer as Taker grabs him by the head and rams it right in to the turnbuckle pad. DiBiase then walks up behind him and Taker turns his head in a flash to another big pop as DiBiase puts on the brakes, knowing he’s in trouble. Taker coolly turns round, staring menacingly at the petrified DiBiase. Jackson comes to his rookie’s rescue though and clubs The Dead-Man across the back savagely, put Taker on his knees. As Taker picks himself back up, Jackson runs the ropes and comes racing back to take him down with a running shoulder block. The fans boo as DiBiase smirks at his rookie as he stands back up. Taker too makes his way back up with the cocky DiBiase watching him all the way.

He runs past him in to the ropes and comes back from behind to connect with a clothesline, putting Taker on his knees again, but not for long. DiBiase’s feeling it now and Maryse is liking what she sees as her boyfriend shifts behind his Survivor Series opponent with the fans showing some concern as Taker unwittingly stands back up to get taken to Dream Street. The fans boo as DiBiase stands up with a huge grin on his face, laughing at the crowd, but all of a sudden another huge roar breaks out as The Undertaker sits up with a face of pure fury. DiBiase & Jackson can’t believe it, DiBiase especially. Jackson’s ordered to go after him and he does. He pulls Taker up from his knees and sets him up for the Book of Ezekiel, but no, Taker escapes with an elbow strike to the head.

He whips Jackson in to the ropes and levels him with a big boot. DiBiase goes to work and clubs Taker across the back but it doesn’t do any damage, only for the youngster as the phenom turns round slowly and drags his arm across his neck to signal the end for him. Ted looks on in horror as Taker grabs him around the throat for a chokeslam to a huge pop from the Ohio crowd. DiBiase thinks fast though and kicks him in the groin to a barrage of heat, sending Taker to the mat and this time he can’t sit up. He writhes around in agony as an intense DiBiase walks over to the ropes and leaves the ring to collect a steel chair. He wastes no time in sliding back in, looking incredibly focused as Jackson picks himself back up with Maryse watching on nervously.

Ted orders his rookie to help Taker up, and he does. Jackson drags Taker up as the intense DiBiase gets ready with the chair, bursting to strike. He then nods his head at Jackson who shoves Taker forward in to an almighty shot to the skull. He falls to the mat and DiBiase just tosses the chair down alongside him to a whole host of boos inside the arena. He looks on looking very proud of himself with Jackson also satisfied at the sight of Taker squirming around on the floor. “Priceless” plays and DiBiase takes off with Jackson & Maryse following him up the ramp. They turn back and see an angry Dead-Man sitting up glaring right back at them, not intimidating DiBiase at all as he simply smirks back at the livid phenom.



*Cut to the Arena*


“Priceless, baby I’m priceless. . .”

The super cocky Ted DiBiase strolls out to the stage in his ring gear in confident stride with his girlfriend, Maryse and his rookie, Ezekiel Jackson by his side to a barrage of boos. Maryse too is smiling like a cat that’s got the cream while Jackson is as intense as ever as they all walk down the ramp with the smug DiBiase as he takes pleasure in shrugging off the deafening heat being thrown at him. Jackson heads up the steps and holds the ropes down for Maryse and then his mentor who enters the ring. Jackson joins them and DiBiase walks over to the other side of the ring to demand a microphone, getting one before joining his girlfriend & rookie in the middle of the ring as his music cuts. The boos ring round the arena, not that they bother DiBiase at all.

Ted DiBiase:
Two weeks ago I told you I wasn’t afraid of taking on The Undertaker at the Survivor Series, then later that night I left him flat on his back in the middle of this very ring.

*Major Heat*

Ted DiBiase: Last week I said that I was going to the Survivor Series to beat The Undertaker and called him out where again I left him flat on his back.

*More Boos*

Ted DiBiase: Hopefully now you an’ the dead man have got the message that I’m not afraid of him and that when we meet at the Survivor Series in less than three weeks I can and will beat him.

*Heat*

Ted DiBiase: As f’ t’night that’s a diff’rent story. What I’m here for right now is to extend an open challenge to anyone in the back, anyone back there just to prove to those who still naively doubt me that I am more than up to any challenge.

DiBiase turns to the stage, as do Maryse & Jackson.

Ted DiBiase:
I think I’ve made myself pretty clear. All I need is just one of you back there to come on down here. Let’s go.

Ted hands the microphone over to Maryse and looks up at the stage waiting for an opponent.

“Lambeg”

DiBiase looks a little surprised initially as Finlay, a former rival walks out to the stage with his shillelagh in hand to a decent pop. The fighting Irishman looks very serious indeed, looking somewhat pleased to have the opportunity to get in the ring with a former foe. He heads off down the ramp followed by a referee as Jackson & Maryse leave the ring with DiBiase getting himself ready for his opponent.



*Match #4*
Finlay vs. Ted DiBiase w/Ezekiel Jackson & Maryse


DiBiase was in confident mood and started off well, but that didn’t stop Finlay coming back at him and giving the crowd as well as himself some satisfaction in roughing up the arrogant young superstar. Ted thought he was on top but when he missed with a delayed falling fist drop, the Irishman seized his chance as both men made their way back up to their feet. He blocked a right and sent DiBiase in to the ropes before sending him crashing back first in to the canvas with a back body drop. The crowd were cheering too, and as Ted got back up, Finlay was right on him, taking him down with a snap mare followed up by a knee to the back and then a surfboard. DiBiase fought his way out of it but was on the wrong end of some pain dished out by his former rival who put him through some serious pain.

The fighting Irishman had him screaming out for the bottom rope in an elevated Boston crab, and fortunately for Ted he managed to drag himself to safety. He was in a bad way though and as the match entered the closing stages he was again on the back foot. Finlay came within milliseconds of victory after a single arm DDT only to see Ted get his shoulder up when the ref’s hand was about to strike the mat for the third time. Even Finlay couldn’t believe it, but he went back to work to seal the deal. He pulled Ted up by the ropes and tried to get him up for the Celtic Cross. DiBiase didn’t let him though and held on to the top ropes before Finlay could get even close to it. The veteran gave up and let go, putting him down on the mat.

He tried to grab him but was raked in the eye by the quick thinking DiBiase who then ignored the ref’s warning and whipped Finlay in to the ropes. The Irishman held on to them though, pissing DiBiase off immediately. He ran right at his opponent and in to a raised boot that sent him staggering away from the ropes much to the satisfaction of the crowd. Finlay was as focused as ever as he watched his groggy opponent then spin round, prompting him to run right at Ted for a clothesline, but Ted ducked it and reacted in a flash to plant his opponent, Dream Street connected and earned Ted the hard fought victory. He stood up smirking as wide as ever with his music playing to be joined in the ring by Maryse & Jackson. He then looked down at the squirming Finlay, then at his rookie and back at Finlay like he had something in mind.

Jackson got the hint and dragged Finlay up to his feet, holding him up for the cocky Ted to talk smack to, angering Finlay no end as he tried to wriggle free. Finlay then shocked Ted by spitting at him, but with Jackson still holding on to him, the rookie spun him round and planted him with the urinage, Book of Ezekiel to a ton of heat. Ted was fuming and dropped to his knees, yelling right at the laid out Irishman when a gong hit to a huge pop. The lights went out for a couple of seconds, but when they came back on there was no sign of The Undertaker. DiBiase took a look around and was very relieved to see it was just him, Maryse, Jackson and the laid out Finlay in the ring. Then another gong hit and the lights went out again, this time for a bit longer, and as they came back on a huge cheer broke out as The Undertaker was standing in the ring right behind DiBiase & Co.

DiBiase though was laughing, shaking his head, completely oblivious to it. Maryse then turned round to realise the danger they were in and tapped her smug boyfriend on the shoulder. He turned round slowly and his grin was well & truly wiped off his face as he was sent down to the mat by a right uppercut. Jackson was then on the end of one too as the crowd went nuts. Maryse panicked big time as the phenom turned and stared right at her, and the crowd were loving it. She was begging for mercy, pleading with him not but to no avail as he grabbed her by the throat to a massive cheer inside the arena. He glared right at her looking as menacing as ever, only for DiBiase to save the day as he got to his feet and clubbed The Dead-Man in the ribs.

Maryse was free and DiBiase went for an irish whip only for it to be reversed, and as he came running back Taker nailed him with a huge boot. The fans were cheering again as DiBiase rolled under the apron and out to the floor. Jackson too was back on his feet and he spun Taker round, nailing him with a series of right hands, forcing him back in to the ropes. Jackson then successfully whipped Taker in to the ropes and ran at him for a clothesline, but Taker ducked it and ran through, coming back to nail Jackson with a flying clothesline to another huge cheer.

As both men made their way back up, Jackson back tracked to the ropes and Taker ran right at him to send him tumbling over them down to the floor below by DiBiase. The cheers echoed around the arena as “Rest in Peace” hit. Maryse wasted no time in escaping the ring to check on DiBiase & Jackson as they began to stir on the outside with Taker staring at all three of them. As Ted sat up, Taker’s eyes were locked on him and he dragged his arm across his throat, visibly concerning DiBiase. The Dead-Man kept staring at him & Maryse as Jackson too sat up, all realising that they do indeed have a huge fight on their hands at the Survivor Series.

Winner: Ted DiBiase by pinfall.


*Video Promo*

Looking all smug as he walks out of his dressing room in his ring gear, The Miz is shown along with his rookie, Heath Slater. The Miz stops and turns back, and they’re followed by Smackdown’s Jack Swagger & Dolph Ziggler. With a stupid smile on his face, Mr. Hollywood walks up the hallway with the rest of Team Miz and Ziggler, much to the confusion of J.R. & The King.


*Commercial Break*


“AWE-SOME. I came to, I came t’ play there’s a price t’ pay. . .”

Boos break out all over the arena as The Miz casually strolls out to the stage in his ring gear and a T-shirt along with his rookie, Heath Slater, Jack Swagger & Dolph Ziggler (all in their ring gear). The Miz is wearing a big smile tonight as he heads down the ramp followed by Team Miz and Ziggler who they were seen talking to on Smackdown last Friday night. The boos continue as The Miz enters the ring and collects a microphone before rejoining his entourage with his music coming to a halt.

The Miz:
In less than three weeks yours truly will be going to the Survivor Series leading Team Miz in t’ war against a team put t’gether by none other than ’The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels’.

*Big Pop*

The Miz: T’night I have the pleasure of letting Shawn an’ all of you losers know that my team is complete. Last Friday I found the last piece of the puzzle, the man who’s made this team more awesome than it already was. That man isn’t just awesome, he’s perfection. Get on your feet an’ give it up for DOLPH ZIGGLERRRR.

*Ton of Heat*

Ziggler stands there looking extremely serious while the rest of Team Miz applaud him.

The Miz:
Let me tell you all why Dolph Ziggler is indeed perfection. Not only does he have the look of a Hollywood superstar just like me, in this ring, again also like me, he’s a super superstar, an’ at the Survivor Series he’s gonna prove it when t’gether as the most awesome team ever assembled my a human being not only defeats Shawn Michaels but humiliates Shawn Michaels.

*More Boos*

The Miz: That’s exactly what we’re going t’ do. Like it or not, The Heartbreak Kid is on his last legs. You’re looking at the future. YOU’RE LOOKING AT THE MEN WHO ARE GOING TO. . .

“S.O.S, I hear ‘em callin’. . .”

Out walks Kofi Kingston to the stage with a microphone in hand to a huge roar and pissing off Team Miz, especially The Miz himself as they all turn and look up at the smirking Jamaican Sensation as his music cuts.

Kofi Kingston:
MIZ, don’t you think it’s about time you shut your mouth?

*Big Pop*

Kofi Kingston: It seems all you do is come out here an’ talk, an’ talk an’ talk but that ends NOW.

The crowd cheer again as The Miz gives Kofi a death stare.

Kofi Kingston:
You come out here an’ y’make out you’re awesome but you’re not, far from it man. You’re a coward who uses guys like them t’ do your dirty work for ya, just like last week. I had you beat an’ you know it which is why I came out here. I want you in that ring t’night. Hell I want you in that ring right now.

*Big Pop*

The Miz smirks, turning to his team and laughing.

The Miz:
Kofi it would be my pleasure to beat you again and keep this losing streak of yours going on an’ on an’ on.

Kofi Kingston: That’s not gonna happen Miz but it’s not as simple as that. See I’m not just challenging you; I’m challenging that little punk ass rookie of yours too.

Slater looks at Miz as if to say “me?”.

The Miz:
You’re on. But hey if you really feel you can beat us in a handicap match, why don’t you just come on down here an’ take on the whole of Team Miz?

Kofi Kingston: Who said anything about a handicap match Miz? I don’t remember saying anything about a handicap match, or did I? Maybe these guys can help me out. Did I say it would be a handicap match?

The fans chant “NO” and Kofi nods his head.

Kofi Kingston:
See I’m not goin’ crazy. I challenged you two for a reason. See last week someone made me an offer after you two screwed me over, an’ over the weekend I gave this guy a call, someone you might know, someone I think you might be facing at Survivor Series, someone who I said I’d help out an’ be a part of ‘is team, someone who said he’d be my partner t’night against you two.

Miz shakes his head knowing what’s coming with the crowd cheering.

Kofi Kingston:
Augusta Georgia, give it up for ‘THE HEARTBREAK KID’ SHAWN MICHAELS.

“I think I’m cute. I know I’m sexy. . .”

The roof almost blows off the TEE Center as the fired up ‘Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels hits the stage to join Kofi Kingston, slapping hands with him before setting off down the ramp with The Miz & Co not looking best pleased at all.


*Match #5*
Shawn Michaels & Kofi Kingston vs. The Miz & Heath Slater w/Dolph Ziggler & Jack Swagger


The crowd were hot for this one and were right behind Michaels & Kingston from the get go, not going down well with Team Miz at all. Shawn & Kofi were on fire too, and Kofi was back to his old self. He was getting some payback on Slater for his involvement last week, giving The Miz’s rookie a real lesson. The Jamaican Sensation was well on top of him until Mr. Hollywood returned the favour when Kofi went for a springboard back elbow smash, pacing across the apron to nail him with a right hand, sending Kofi down to the mat. It gave Miz the chance to take it to Kofi, and that’s exactly what he did until Kingston turned the tables and dodged a leg drop bulldog to a big pop. That brought in Michaels to a huge pop from the capacity crowd as the worried Miz made his way back up to see his rival there eagerly waiting to get his hands on him.

That’s exactly what he did, but there was a surprise in store for The Heartbreak Kid as The Miz came fighting back at him, kicking away at him to fight off Shawn’s attempt to apply the a figure four leg lock. As both men picked themselves up Miz reversed an irish whip and caught Michaels with the kitchen sink to deflate the pro-face crowd. To the surprise & disappointment of the crowd, Miz & Slater along with some help from Swagger & Ziggler managed to take control of the match. It didn’t stay that way though and as the match was drawing towards the finish, Michaels & Kofi were in danger thanks to Swagger & Ziggler taking Michaels out on the outside when the ref was distracted by Slater & Miz. Kofi had been well isolated and The Miz was in control, and he knew it.

The Miz was looking to end the match, urging the struggling, battered Jamaican to stand up, stalking him for the Skull Crushing Finale. The crowd were trying to warn him, but he didn’t appear to know where he was as he clawed his way back up. Miz pounced, grabbing him, but Kofi surprised him, slipping behind him and rolling him up. Miz kicked out and both men rushed to their feet as quickly as they could. Kofi ducked a wild right and whipped Miz in to the corner, then ran in and jumped up on to the ropes to a big cheer before unloading on him with a series of right hands that left The Miz in a spin. Kofi backed out of the corner and Miz staggered out in to his path, and with Kofi fired up to the max he levelled him with Trouble in Paradise.

He got all of it and scurried across to hook the near leg for a cover, but Swagger was there by the ropes to put Miz’s foot on there for the ref to see and break his count. Boos rang out in the arena and Kofi sat up in shock, then saw Swagger smirking back at him. Kofi lost it like last week and went on a chase outside, only to be blocked off by a smug Ziggler. Kofi snapped and drilled him with a right hand to another big pop. Swagger was his next target and he ran after him again, then Slater jumped off the apron to take him down with a double axe handle before rolling him back in to the ring. Miz was still in a bad way and Michaels was just about standing back up on the apron after the earlier attack from Ziggler & Swagger.

Michaels saw the damage and held his hand out for the tag, still groggy as Slater called out for his mentor to tag him in too. Kofi & Miz crawled across to their respective corners and tagged their partners in to the match with Michaels quickly shaking off the cobwebs. Slater had no answer for The Heartbreak Kid who was well & truly fired up. Slater found himself on the end of an atomic drop and a scoop slam. Michaels then went up to the dizzy heights of the top rope, much to the concern of Swagger. The All-American American jumped up to the apron and grabbed Shawn’s boot but was quickly kicked down with Michaels going on to connect with a diving elbow drop to a big cheer.

He then did his trademark flip up to another huge cheer and retreated to the corner to tune up the band with the fans clapping and stomping their feet in tandem as Slater unwittingly picked himself up. Miz did the same and saw what was coming, panicking big time. He went right after Michaels who saw him coming up and tossed him over the top rope down to the floor. The crowd loved that but as Michaels turned round he saw Slater on his feet. They ran right at each other and Michaels ducked a clothesline, then as they spun round in a flash Michaels leaned back and took Slater’s head off with some Sweet Chin Music to another almighty cheer to pick up the win for him & Kofi. He & Kofi then stood tall with their arms raised high in the air, much to the disgust of the scattered & angry Team Miz.

Winners: Shawn Michaels & Kofi Kingston by pinfall.

*Video Recap*
From Last Week

World Tag Team Championship Tournament – Second Semi Final Match
Rey Mysterio & Mystico vs. Matt Hardy & Gregory Helms w/Shannon Moore

Both Rey & Matt raced back up to their feet with Rey ducking a clothesline and sending Matt on to the second rope after a drop toe hold. The fans were going nuts again as this time Rey didn’t dial up, deciding to strike while the iron was hot and connected with the 619. Matt fell to the mat and stayed there with Rey going for the springboard and dropping the dime. The fans thought it was all over and so did Mystico as Rey hooked the leg in a flash but Helms saved the day, racing in to the ring and pulling Rey off of Matt. That didn’t go down well with some of the crowd who let out some boos. Rey wasn’t happy either as he stood up and looked at Helms before shoving him. Helms shoved back and Rey then levelled him with a forearm to the face. He then went for an irish whip which Helms reversed with ease. Mysterio held on to the ropes, not to the pleasure of Helms at all who charged right at him.

Rey countered though to lift Helms over his shoulder and down to the floor in front of the announce table. Matt was getting back up, and as Rey turned round he ran at him, but Mysterio reacted quickly again to hold down the rope to send Matt flying down to the floor too alongside Helms. Rey took the chance to get some breath back, and as Moore went over to check on his buddies, Rey then turned round and a light bulb went off above his head. He gestured something to Mystico and his rookie entered the ring. Rey walked over to him and they looked over at the opponents struggling back up on the floor, gaining the full attention of Daniels & Kaval at the top of the stage. The Mexican duo then nodded at each other and ran across the ring and dived through the ropes together for a double suicide with Moore getting caught in the crossfire as all five men crashed in to the announce table.

It was carnage and they were barely moving as the ref started to count them out. As the count got to six there was still little movement and Daniels & Kaval stood up from their seats. Rey, Hardy & Mystico then crawled towards the apron, dragging themselves up it followed by Helms, but as they pulled themselves back in the ring the ref counted to ten. Daniels & Kaval walked down the ramp looking completely confused at what it meant as Lilian Garcia announced the result as a double count out to a ton of heat. Daniels & Kaval just looked at each other in total bewilderment as all four men in the ring picked themselves up trying to find out what was going on. The ref tried to explain it to them as Moore also joined them, still looking for worse for wear when Eric Bischoff walked out to the stage with a microphone in hand.

Eric Bischoff: Well it seems like we’ve found ourselves in quite the predicament here. It sure is an interesting one and I think we need an interesting way of dealing with it. . . You guys really did a great job t’night an’ put on quite the show, and the way I see it we’ve been given a chance to really spice this tournament up. We already know that Daniels an’ Kaval there will be in the final at the Survivor Series, but personally, right now I love the idea of making it a triple threat match.

“Back in Black” plays and Bischoff turns round to walk to the back, leaving Rey, Mystico, Hardy & Helms smiling in the ring, but Daniels & Kaval still aren’t happy with the Head of Authority’s announcement.


*Cut to the Arena*


Christopher Daniels & Kaval
are standing in the middle of the ring with their music playing but it stops. Both men are dressed casually looking pretty pissed off and Daniels is holding a microphone while the fans boo them.

Christopher Daniels:
You can boo all you want but the fact of the matter is there’s only two people who have the right to be angry right now an’ that’s us. You shouldn’t need me to explain it for you because you just saw why for yourselves. However if there are some of you out there or at home and don’t quite understand, it goes a little something like this.

Daniels takes a second, obviously still not happy.

Christopher Daniels:
See at about the same time as we arrived in this company this show had no tag team champions. The titles had been vacated due to an injury to one of the champions an’ that’s fine. What was even better about that was Eric Bischoff, the man who brought us here by the way came up with what Kaval an’ I agreed was a great decision by making an eight team elimination tournament to crowd new World Tag Team Champions.

*Pop*

Christopher Daniels: Exactly. What better way t’ crown new champions? Take eight teams and the last team standing become the new tag team champions. . . Now it seemed like a flawless idea. You take eight teams, put them in matches until there are just two left t’ battle it out for the titles. That seems quite straight forward, however as you just saw that’s not the case, because last week there was one spot left in the final for one of those remaining teams t’ challenge us at the Survivor Series with us having earned our place in the final. Now the key word there was earned. We earned our place because we won both our matches, as are the traditional rules of an elimination tournament. Those rules don’t state that two teams can just be given a free pass to the next round like we saw last week. What was the point of even having the match in the first place? To put it simply, we’re not happy.

*Heat*

Christopher Daniels: We did ev’rything we’ve been asked t’ do. We’ve won both our matches so far, well ev’ry match we’ve competed in since we debuted t’ be precise. We deserve our place in the final. If there was any justice in the world Eric Bischoff would do one of two things, either order a rematch from last week so we get a fair outcome or he officially makes us the tag team champions effective immediately.

*Major Heat*

Christopher Daniels: It doesn’t have t’ be a popular decision and it certainly doesn’t have t’ please you. What you think is irrelevant. The fact remains we’re the only team to have won each match in this tournament. We shouldn’t have t’ compete in a triple threat match at the Survivor Series against two other teams that haven’t earned the right t’ be there. It’s just not right and we refuse to accept it. So Bischoff. . .

“Live for the Moment”

A big pop greets Matt Hardy & Gregory Helms as they walk out to the stage with Shannon Moore, all wearing ‘Team Omega’ T-shirts. They’re in a more relaxed mood as they walk down the ramp with the angry duo of Daniels & Kaval looking on, and as Hardy, Helms & Moore step in the ring, Matt goes to get a microphone. He walks back to join his Team Omega buddies and his music stops with cheers still ringing round the TEE Center.

Matt Hardy:
It’s not fair right? Y’know what? Maybe it’s not but you know what you’ve gotta do guys? You’ve just gotta deal with it.

*Big Pop*

Christopher Daniels: Well with no disrespect, you would say that.

Matt Hardy: Well yeah, maybe I would but reality is that’s the way it is. This ain’t exactly how we wan’ed it t’ pan out either. Before the match last week we were hopin’ it’d be you an’ us at Survivor Series, but hey that’s not how it’s played out. Is that what we wan’ed? No. Heck we even got booed last week when it looked like we were gonna win that match an’ get a shot against you guys but we’re not out here complainin’. We’ve got a shot at the tag team titles. That’s all we’ve ever wan’ed since this tournament, since we were kids an’ now we’ve got it. We’ve been here a long time t’ get this sho. . .

Christopher Daniels: . . . I’m sorry but are we supposed t’ feel sorry for you? It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been t’gether or how long you’ve been here or even if you got booed last week. Maybe it’s because these people actually realise you suck. That’s probably why it’s taken you so long t’ get in this position.

*Heat*

Christopher Daniels: We’ve only been here a couple of months yet unlike you we actually earned the right t’ get the shot we’ve got. What does that tell you Matt? I’ll tell you what that tells you. It tells you that we’re better than you, that we’re more deserving than you. Look at it however you want, the bottom line is we deserve t’ be champions an’ you don’t.

*More Boos*

Christopher Daniels: And if at the Survivor Series we don’t become the new World Tag Team Champions it’ll be just a big a screwjob as the one we had in Montreal eleven years ago.

*Major Heat*

Christopher Daniels: We’re the victims here. You two, Rey Mysterio an’ his mini me are the lucky ones in all this. You’ve already won without even winning, an’ to us that’s criminal. That’s why we’re out here, t’ make sure that something’s done about this. You can say we just have t’ deal with it as much as you want, you have to accept that we simply won’t just deal with it. How is that going t’ help us Matt? How’s that going to ensure there’s some kind of justice here? The whole purpose of this tournament was to make sure the new tag team champions would be the best team on this show. So far that’s us. We’ve. . .

Helms takes the stick from Matt.

Gregory Helms:
Hey, Daniels, we heard you already. They heard you too. You’ve won your matches, yeah you’re undefeated, we get it. If you’re that good, what’s your problem? You’ll have no problem beatin’ us plus Rey an’ his rookie if you’re as good as you make out.

Christopher Daniels: That’s not the point. We shouldn’t have to beat you both. We. . .

“Booyaka 619”

A massive pop breaks out in the arena along with a pyro explosion as Rey Mysterio & Mystico, his rookie walk out to the stage. Mysterio has a microphone in hand and Daniels & Kaval look even angrier now at the further interruption though. Matt, Helms & Moore all give their friends a brief round of applause.

Rey Mysterio:
What’s up with you guys huh? Not you Matt, Greg, you two. I’ve been around here long enough t’ know that you can’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Look at this way; you’re still in the final an’ you’ve still got a shot at being the new World Tag Team Champions.

*Pop*

Rey Mysterio: That’s the only thing that matters. We all want the titles an’ we’ve all got a shot. . .

Christopher Daniels: . . . Let me stop you there Rey because unlike these guys, I actually respect you. I also respect Mystico. I’ve had the chance t’ get in the ring with him, so’s Kaval, but Rey the fact that I respect you doesn’t change this situation. Two weeks ago we booked our place in the final an’ a shot at the tag team titles. Last week was your chance an’ their chance. Neither of you took it. In any other tournament you’d be out an’ the opponents waiting for you in the next round would get a bye, a free pass if y’will. If that was the case here we’d be the new champions as we speak which is why Rey we’re not all that happy about having t’ face not just you an’ Mystico but these undeserving southern hippies too.

*Heat*

Gregory Helms: You better watch that mouth o’ yours before I shut it for ya.

*Pop*

Christopher Daniels: I’d love nothing more than t’ see you try but we both know that’s not going t’ happen. Even you aren’t that stupid. Well maybe you are but I wouldn’t advise it. If you’ve not seen what we’ve done in short space of time here you wouldn’t be making such stupid threats. We’re superior to any team on this show, in this company and any other team in the world t’day which is why whatever does or doesn’t happen before Survivor Series we’ll still be the next World Tag Team Champions.

*Chorus of Boos*

Helms gets right in Daniels’ face with Matt & Moore trying to hold him back with Daniels & Kaval standing firm, not looking in the least bit intimidated.

Rey Mysterio:
Hey, guys, up here. What’s goin’ on? We’re all fightin’ t’ be tag team champions. This is crazy. We’ve all got a shot, but if we’re layin’ it all out on the line t’night, there’s only gonna be one of us walkin’ out of Survivor Series with the titles. Y’might not agree with me but that’s not gonna be either of you, it’s gonna be us.

“Booyaka 619” hits again to another pop as Mysterio & Mystico stare down all serious at the tension filled ring with Helms & Daniels staring daggers at each other, all talking smack at each other. Daniels then directs his frustration up at Rey as the Mexicans mentor & rookie combination stand there defiantly staring back at them all.

*Cut to the Arena*



*The Main Event*
Carlito w/Eddie Colon vs. Triple H


Carlito had to contend with an even angrier than normal Triple H, and The Game was in one hell of a mood from the moment he stepped through the curtain, looking incredibly pissed off even for him. Carlito bore the brunt of it in for the opening minutes of the match, taking a battering from the King of Kings. The Puerto Rican came back in to it though, much to the frustration of the already infuriated Triple H. When The Game came back off the ropes and missed a jumping knee drop after Carlito rolled to the side, both men picked themselves back up with Carlito retreating to the ropes. Triple H was livid and charged right at him, taking a tumble over the ropes after Carlito ducked and pulled the top one down.

The Game hit the floor to a loud cheer and to the relief of Carlito who took some valuable time to recover from the beating he’d taken. Triple H looked less happy as he made it back up on to his knees, and as he moved towards the apron, Carlito ran back in to the ropes and came racing back with a baseball slide kick to send his opponent back down to the floor and against the security wall. The crowd were loving it and Carlito took the fight to The King of Kings, leaving the ring as his opponent climbed his way back up. Carlito chopped his chest, setting off a series of “WOO’s” all around the arena before firing The Game in to the apron back first. He went on to surprise most people by staying on top of Triple H, however it didn’t stay that way for all that long.

He had The Game in a spin as he made it back up to his feet and then nailed him with a running knee lift to the side of the head, then ran the ropes looking for a clothesline but Trips countered with a high knee strike to send Carlito down. He didn’t wait around for him to get up himself and dragged him up, then fired him hard in to the turnbuckle pads, so hard that the Puerto Rican staggered out in to The Game’s path for a vicious falling clothesline. Triple H was in charge of the match going in to the closing minutes, and after Carlito just managed to escape an abdominal stretch, still suffering, The Game smelt blood. He pulled him up to his feet and whipped him in to the ropes, nailing him as he came back with a facebuster knee smash. With Carlito in a spin, Triple H kicked him in the gut and pulled him in to position for the Pedigree.

The fans were booing and Eddie was worrying big time on the outside. There was no need though as Carlito sparked some life & hope back in to the crowd with a back body drop, escaping the deadly Pedigree. He and The Game clawed their way back up and Carlito looked to strike while the iron was hot, going for an irish whip. Trips reversed it though and sent Carlito flying in to them, but the Puerto Rican stunned everyone, especially his opponent when he jumped on to the second rope for a springboard back elbow smash. The crowd cheered again, really getting behind Carlito who was feeling the momentum swinging his way. They picked themselves up again with The Game reeling, missing with a wild right hand and Carlito took full advantage to send him spiralling in to the canvas with an overdrive to a big cheer.

The TEE Center was rocking as Carlito, full of hope turned his opponent over on to his back for a cover, but The Game got his shoulder up at two. Trips was in serious trouble now, and Carlito was pumped, jumping up to his feet and urging The Game up as well as the fans for some extra encouragement. It worked too as they rose to their feet with Carlito seemingly getting ready for the Backstabber. The Game also tried to rise up, crawling towards the ropes on his hands & knees before using them to pull himself up. Carlito slipped up behind him and went for it, trying to hit his finisher, but Triple H hung on to the ropes and Carlito hit the deck. The Game was intense as hell, and as he turned round he pulled Carlito up to his feet and then fired him in to the corner.

Carlito’s back hit the pads and Trips ran right at him, but Carlito shocked him again, lifting his boot up in to The Game’s face, sending him staggering away from the corner. With the crowd cheering, Carlito ran at Triple H as he turned round, only for Trips to plant him with a spinning spinebuster. The King of Kings was in no mood to mess around and didn’t go for the cover, opting to drag Carlito back up to his feet, and this time he drilled him with the Pedigree to pick up the win despite a courageous attempt from Carlito. “The Game” played to heat from the capacity crowd and Triple H was quick to pull his arm away from the referee, showing no signs of being calmer despite the win, staring intensely in to the crowd with disgust.

Winner: Triple H by pinfall.


*Cut to the Parking Lot*


There’s some trouble in the parking lot as we see Vince McMahon & John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield stomping all over someone on the floor by a car with the trunk open and a travel bag beside it. It looks to be Justin Gabriel and the father & son combination are really putting the boots to the South African rookie.

Vince McMahon:
That’s it son, stomp the crap out of him.

All of a sudden we see a group of security officers & officials storm out towards with them, shouting at them to stop what they’re doing, followed by Eric Bischoff, who marches over to them as they stop the attack reluctantly. The officials check on Gabriel as he remains laid out on the floor with Bischoff fuming at the remorseless Corporation.

Eric Bischoff:
What in the hell are you doing? You’re not even supposed t’ be here?. . . Wait, you planned all this didn’t you. There’s nothing wrong with Big Show’s wife is there?

J.B.L. & Vince turn & smirk at each other.

Eric Bischoff:
You guys are just sick. Get ‘em out of here.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: HEY, we’ll go of our own accord thank you very much.

Father & son step away but Layfield stops and turns back.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield:
It’s just a pity his mentor wasn’t here to look out for ‘im. What a shame.

Vince McMahon: Tragic.

They walk away laughing amongst themselves with Bischoff absolutely disgusted by them. His attention then turns to Gabriel who’s barely moving on the floor with officials already checking on him.

Eric Bischoff:
Is he okay?


*Cut Backstage*


‘The Game’ Triple H
is walking through the back, breathing slightly heavily after his match when he stops and appears to see something that he doesn’t like. His face goes red and he breathes even heavier as the camera cuts to a shot of Batista with his back to the shot hugging someone in the distance. Triple H loses it and storms over. Batista doesn’t hear him coming and The Game pulls him away, spins him round and nails him with a right hand, sending him to the floor and glares down at him in anger.

?:
DAD!

The Game turns his head expecting to see Stephanie but it’s not, it’s Batista’s daughter and she panics, kneeling down to check on her dad. The Animal sits up with a face like thunder and then we hear someone run over and club Triple H down to his knees. It’s Randy Orton & Darren Young and they stomp all over The Game. Orton then drags him up and tosses him in to one of the production boxes with Batista looking on in shock, as does his daughter. The King of Kings is barely moving on the floor and Orton turns to Batista, then nods his head at him. The Legend Killer slaps Young on the arm then walks out of the shot as a confused & angry Batista then looks across at a groggy looking Triple H coming round as the show comes to a close.

Friday Night Smackdown Preview
Friday 24th October 2008
Live from the Mississippi Coast Coliseum
Biloxi, Mississippi





With so much at stake for John Cena & CM Punk at the Survivor Series, it’s fair to say that Cena’s presence on Smackdown is really starting to frustrate the World Heavyweight Champion more & more each weel, and you have to wonder just how angry Punk will be this week after losing to Matt Sydal last Friday night thanks to a big F-U from his opposing team captain come Survivor Series in two weeks. Cena decided to take a closer look at the action as the World Champion met the United States Champion, and as Punk’s rookie, Alberto Del-Rio Ramirez was busy trying to help out his mentor, Cena slipped in to the ring and gave The Straight-Edge Superstar a reminder of what he’ll have to avoid when they lock horns where Cena will be fighting to become the number one contender for Punk’s world title at Night of Champions.

However Cena didn’t have much time to celebrate with Sydal, who’ll be a member of Team Cena when Shelton Benjamin, who earlier in the night offered Punk his services for Survivor Series and warned him not to underestimate the King of the Ring. He proved to be right but after being shot down by the World Champion he came out with a point to prove and sure made a statement by attacking Cena & Sydal before being chased off by Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas. The team that’s on fire right now may well have been the men Cena was referring to earlier in the evening when he said the make-up of his team was all but complete, and we hear that Cena will open the show this week. Just what does the controversial Smackdown newcomer have to say? Tune in to find out.

We already know that Christian will be a part of Team Cena and his brother, Edge will be a part of Team Punk, and last week Edge let us all know that he’s still smarting over his loss to Captain Charisma back at SummerSlam when he jumped Christian as he was making his way down to the ring for what was going to be a handicap match after Tyson Tomko was attacked in the back, presumably by The Rated-R Superstar. What on earth will this week bring when the Canadian siblings arrive in Biloxi?

It appears that Shawn Michaels now knows what opposition he’ll be facing at the Survivor Series as The Miz unveiled Dolph Ziggler as the final member of his “awesome” team to take on Michaels, Kofi Kingston and whoever else will be joining them in the traditional elimination match. However Mr. Hollywood wasn’t smiling for long as Kingston suckered him into a tag team match with Kofi & Michaels defeating Miz and his rookie, Heath Slater. We may just see Miz on Smackdown again this week as one of his team mates will be in action when Jack Swagger takes on the recently engaged Elijah Burke. Can Team Miz get back some momentum?

The WWE Tag Team Champions certainly have had some issues as of late and last week we saw Paul Burchill walk out on his partner when he decided not to stick around and watch TJ Wilson’s match with Dolph Ziggler. Burchill had words with Harry Smith before leaving the arena to the bewilderment of Smith and his rookie. Can The UK Pack resolve their differences or are they heading down a dark path?

This Friday night we’ll see the highly impressive rookie of Chavo Guerrero, J-Red compete in his first title match in the WWE when he takes on Johnny Jeter for Jeter’s Cruiserweight Championship. Red was the last man standing in a battle royal last week to determine just who would meet Jeter this week, and ironically it came down to Red & Chavo where the rookie once again came out on top at the expense of his mentor. How on earth will Chavo be feeling about that, but more importantly, will Red be able to seize on the momentum from last week to topple Jeter and become the new Cruiserweight Champion?

There was speculation last week of who would be representing Team Smackdown at the Survivor Series against Team Raw, and Monday night we got an answer. Raw’s captain, the Intercontinental Champion, Sheamus wasn’t pulling any punches in how he easy he feels it is going to be to lead Raw to victory, however he may feel differently now after M.V.P. & Ron Killings caught him well & truly off guard, letting him know that they would be part of the Smackdown team which will be lead by M.V.P. Killings in particular though took real offence to The Celtic Warrior’s confident comments and knocked him on his ass. Just when it looked like Sheamus’s rival and fellow team member Carlito had come to his aid, the Puerto Rican gave him a hand up before catching him with a sneaky Backstabber. It looks like it’s going to be a bumpy ride from now until Survivor Series when the two brands go to war.

We saw Michelle McCool earn herself a shot at Beth Phoenix’s Diva’s Championship last Friday night when a calculated plan paid off, manipulating Beth and her rookie, Nikki Roxx to talk herself into title contention. She overcame Roxx and fought her way to a shot at The Glamazon’s title, and this week it’ll be the Diva’s Champion who’ll be in action. Surely she’ll be out to send a statement to McCool who you assume won’t be too far away.

Paul London & Brian Kendrick sure have been one of the best teams, if not the best team that Smackdown has ever seen, and that was pointed out to the duo by Tazz last week as their personal issues spilled over on to Smackdown having been drafted from Raw recently. They were part of the battle royal last week that saw J-Red become the number one contender for the Cruiserweight Championship and London managed to eliminate himself while also sending his former partner over the ropes. Kendrick wasn’t happy at all and they fought their way through to the back where the General Manager had to step in, letting them know exactly how he felt about them, telling them how good a team they were and that they’ve done nothing since they went their separate ways. We’ve since learned that he’s made a match that will see them go one on one this week. Are they going to take their chance to shine?

Friday Night Smackdown
Friday 24th October 2008
Live from the Mississippi Coast Coliseum
Biloxi, Mississippi




*Opening Video*
“If You Rock Like Me”



*Video Recap*
From Last Week

We’re taken to the locker room of the World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk where he sits on the bench alongside his smartly dressed rookie, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez with the Mexican looking a bit angry. Punk on the other hand seems fairly relaxed.


CM Punk:
Hey, look I know you’re not happy you lost t’ Cena last week but the reality of all what went down was you did something not many people here have had the guts t’ do f’ years. You didn’t just stand up t’ John Cena. You challenged him to a match and you’ve gotta know like I’m sure you already do, you did a good job in there.

Del Rio turns to his mentor and nods his head at him, picking up on what he’s been told.

Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez:
You’re right. Thank you and I promise you this. . .

Del Rio-Ramirez looks up distracted, and then so does Punk as we hear the door out of shot close. ‘The Gold Standard’ Shelton Benjamin then walks towards them, looking kind of serious tonight, surprising the World Champion and his rookie.

CM Punk:
Shelton, hey. Are we in the wrong dressing room ‘cause. . .

Shelton Benjamin: . . . No you’re not an’ neither am I.

CM Punk: Huh, so are you going to explain what it is you’re doing here only I’m kind of at a loss right now. Maybe you can help me out.

Shelton Benjamin: That’s exactly what I came here t’ do Punk. I came here to offer you my help at the Survivor Series against John Cena. I want a spot on your team.

Punk turns to Del Rio smirking, and even the Mexican seems amused by that. Punk stands up and Shelton remains very serious.

CM Punk:
Look, I appreciate you coming here with your generous offer, really I do, it’s just, an’ don’t take this personally Shelton, what I need on my team is winners. This might be a little close t’ home but it seems all you’ve done lately is lose lose an’ lose some more, all t’ one guy who just by chance I’ll be facing later on t’night and at the Survivor Series. You can kind of see my problem right ‘cause if you were in my shoes even you’d have problem picking yourself the way things have been f’ you this year.

Shelton Benjamin: With respect Punk you don’t have t’ tell me about what the last few months have been like. No one knows about that more than me. What I do know is this. What’s happened has happened an’ I wanna move past it like you wouldn’t believe, an’ Punk, you know talent when you see it.

CM Punk: Yeah I do, lose a lot t’ Matt Sydal, an’ if that happens again at Survivor Series I’m down a guy an’ I can’t afford to let that happen. . . Listen this isn’t personal Shelton. Like you said you do have talent but you can understand my concerns right?

Shelton Benjamin: Alright fine, just let me give you one piece of advice, don’t underestimate Sydal, ‘cause if y’do it might just come back an’ bite you in the ass.

CM Punk: Thanks for the concern but I’ve got it covered believe me.

A slightly disappointed yet not so surprised looking Shelton turns round and leaves the room, prompting Punk to turn round and look at his rookie. The Mexican stands up and smiles at the World Champion.

Non-Title Champion vs. Champion Match
Matt Sydal w/Mickie James & John Cena vs. CM Punk w/Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez

Cena was looking worried as Punk watched on, and as Sydal made it to his feet, the World Champion struck, once again lifting him on to his shoulders for the GTS. Sydal wriggled around right away and fought his way down to Punk’s anger once more. Punk turned round and Sydal caught him with a feint enzuigiri in to a head scissors takedown. Del Rio-Ramirez was panicking big time, and as Sydal got back up, the Mexican jumped up on to the apron, getting the ref’s attention. He walked over to Del Rio-Ramirez and told him to get down but he wouldn’t. Sydal watched on, unbeknown to him Punk was getting back up.

Cena was looking concerned but decided to fight fire with fire, slipping in to the ring as Punk spun Sydal round and up in to place for the GTS again. Del Rio-Ramirez saw Cena and tried to point it out to the ref, but he was having none of it. Cena pulled Sydal down to the shock of Punk, who then turned round to see Cena there and was then lifted up off his feet and fell victim to the F-U to a huge roar. The crowd were going nuts as Cena then directed Sydal to go to the top rope as Punk’s rookie was going mental at the oblivious ref. Cena then dragged Punk closer to the corner as Sydal then raced up to the top and looked in to the crowd with Punk laying motionless beneath him.

The United States Champion then connected with the Shooting Star Press to a huge cheer and hooked the leg for the cover. Mickie pointed it out to the ref who turned round and raced across the mat to make the count, all the way to three to give Sydal the huge win, setting off an enormous pop inside the Norfolk Scope. Cena joined him in the ring to raise his hand along with Mickie who gave her delighted boyfriend a hug. As Cena looked down at Punk with a smirk on his face, Shelton Benjamin stormed the ring out of nowhere and took Cena down with the Paydirt, bringing Sydal’s music to a halt. Sydal let go of Mickie and went at Shelton, walking right in to a super kick from the incredibly serious Gold Standard.

Benjamin looked down at the carnage as the confused Del Rio-Ramirez watched from the outside. Punk was sitting up, also confused but smirked as he saw Cena & Sydal on the mat with Mickie by her boyfriend’s side. Del Rio-Ramirez then entered the ring with Punk’s title, handing it over to him as he stood up. Punk gave it back to him though and watched Cena squirming around on the mat, then directed his rookie & Benjamin to step back. Mickie tried to stop him but he ignored her and Shelton pulled her away. Just as Cena got to his knees, “Hell Will be Callin’ Your Name” and Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas walked out to the stage to a big pop.

Punk & Co were confused in the ring as they looked up at the serious looking duo who then charged down the ramp and in to the ring. As they entered, Punk panicked and along with Benjamin & Del Rio-Ramirez, they fled to safety, much to the anger of Lashley & Haas. Haas then helped Cena up as Punk & Co backed away from the ring and up the ramp, watching on angrily as Cena, Lashley & Haas stared back at them with their game faces on. Sydal then sat up and looked up towards the stage too with angry glances being exchanged all around as the show came to a close.


*Cut to the Arena*


“My Time is Now”
is playing to a huge pop with John Cena stood in the middle of the ring in front of the United States Champion, Matt Sydal, the team of Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas and a very serious looking Christian. Captain Charisma doesn’t look at all happy, somewhat distracted while Sydal, Lashley & Haas all stand happily behind Cena who’s got a microphone in hand as his music cuts, bringing out a strong mixed reception, mainly positive from the capacity crowd here in Biloxi, Mississippi.

John Cena:
Man you sound pumped t’night.

*Pop*

John Cena:
Well you’re not the only ones guys. In just two weeks it’s the Survivor Series, an’ that means I’ll be leadin’ a team, this team, this group of superstars standin’ behind me t’night t’ take on another team, a team who’ll be led by none other than our World Heavyweight Champion, C-M Punk.

*Heat*

John Cena: That’s right. . . C-M Punk. Now I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but it seems he’s got a fairly low opinion of me, but y’know what? I couldn’t care less. It ain’t anythin’ I’ve not heard already. He can say what he wants about me, it don’t make a blind bit o’ diff’rence, but Punk let me tell y’somethin’ ‘cause this is somethin’ y’need t’ hear champ’. You said a couple o’ weeks ago there wasn’t a single person in that locker room who wan’ed me here, who’d wanna help me out against you at Survivor Series, well guess what? Take a look behind me Punk. What d’ y’see? Let me answer that for ya. That’s my team, the guys who are more than happy t’ help me out against you an’ whoever else helps you out, an’ I want you t’ know Punk you better be ready. You thought I wouldn’t get a team t’gether well take a look. There they are an’ I couldn’t be happier. I’ve got the hottest team in the W-W-E t’day in Bobby Lashley an’ Charlie Haas.

*Pop*

John Cena: Oh wait, that ain’t all. Take another look ‘cause standin’ right there is Captain Charisma himself, CHRISTIAN.

With the crowd cheering, the camera zooms in on a still extremely serious look Christian who doesn’t acknowledge the crowd or Cena.

*Big Pop*

John Cena: An’ this man needs no mention. Not only is he the United States Champion an’ the two thousand an’ eight King of the Ring. He’s the man who last week in this ring beat C-M Punk. I give you MATT SYDAL.

*Big Pop*

John Cena: These are the guys that are gonna make sure Team Punk’s goin’ down at Survivor Series, an’ Punk as much as you wanna bitch about it an’ maybe rightly so, after we’re done goin’ through you an each o’ your guys, you’ll be lookin’ at the number one contender for the WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP.

*Large Pop*

John Cena: Y’can talk about how I’ve been handed this shot just f’ walkin’ on over here from Raw but the fact is I’ve not got a shot at the title yet but at Survivor Series I’m sure as hell gonna earn it.

*Pop*

John Cena: After ev’rythin’ you Edge an’ that rookie of yours ‘ave said you sure as hell can bet on me bustin’ my ass t’ prove I deserve a shot at the world title, then at Night of Champions it’ll come down t’ the two of us. There’ll be no more time f’ talkin’ then Punk. It’ll be me an’ you in this ring for the richest prize in the business, the one thing we do have in common, the world heavyweight title, but make no mistake about it Punk I know how much you an’ your guys wanna make sure that doesn’t happen. I know it’s gonna be a fight t’ the end an’ so d’ these guys, an’ believe me I’ve got a team ready t’ fight. Like me Punk they’re ready f’ a battle, we’re ready f’ war ‘cause in two weeks that’s exactly what it’s gonna be.

*More Cheers*

John Cena: The fact is champ’ as much as you don’t believe it or wanna believe it these guys are behind me one hundred percent. Right now this shot at the world title’s irrelevant. It doesn’t matter. I didn’t ask f’ it but I sure as hell ain’t dumb enough t’ turn it down, but at Survivor Series Punk f’ us it’s all about. . .

“This Fire Burns”

To a barrage of boos the World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk strolls out to the stage in his ring gear and a T-shirt along with his rookie, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez by his side. The Mexican looks in a fairly bad mood while Punk with a microphone appears to be quite calm, amused even, looking down at Cena with a smirk on his face. Team Cena with the exception of Christian turn and look up at the World Champion and his music is cut by the guys in the truck.

CM Punk:
Wow, where do I start?. . . John, the crap that comes out of your mouth astounds me more an’ more with ev’ry passing week. What I will say is you are right about one thing. Yeah it sure is gonna be a war at Survivor Series, of that I assure you but before I get t’ Survivor Series an’ the whole charade of a contest I have to address what happened last week when in that ring you an’ your team are in right now I lost t’ Matt Sydal.

*Big Pop*

Punk smiles, as does the United States Champion.

CM Punk:
Now I’m not looking t’ take anything away from you Matt ‘cause you did a heck of a job. It’s just we both know why I lost that match. It’s because yet again ev’ryone’s favourite superhero just had t’ steal the limelight an’ get involved didn’t y’John? You just couldn’t stand by an’ watch could ya? But y’know what? I understand. I understand it must be hard for you t’ watch two actual talented wrestlers show you for what you are, a talentless, selfish. . .

John Cena: . . . Hey Punk you got anythin’ new t’ say or are you just gonna keep comin’ out with all these tired lines ‘cause we’ve heard ‘em all already? We heard ‘em last week, the week before that, the week b. . .

CM Punk: . . . As tired as they may be John, they’re true. You ask anyone in the crowd who’s not under the age of eleven or some middle aged woman going through a mid-life crisis an’ they’ll tell you the same thing I have, but you know what? I’ve got a better idea. Why don’t you go ask anyone in the back? In fact why don’t you ask anyone of those guys in the ring with you right now how they feel about you waltzing on over here with a title shot just handed t’ y’like that?

Cena smirks and there’s a slight awkwardness in the ring with Christian still not a happy bunny, not paying much attention to what’s been said.

CM Punk:
The fact of the matter is John you can make out you don’t care about the title shot right now or how you didn’t ask for it but it doesn’t change the fact you’ve got it like you’ve gotten opportunity after opportunity, main event after main event for the last three years, handed to you on a plate just because for some reason the people who run this company an’ run this show believe you’re what these people want t’ see when the fact is like me, the majority of this locker room despise you.

*Mixed*

CM Punk: An’ y’know what John? I wouldn’t be surprised if all four of those guys there now you’re relying on at Survivor Series felt the same way. I mean why wouldn’t they? Look guys I’ve got nothing against you. I don’t blame you for being part of Team Cena. Let’s face it, it’s about time the roles were reversed an’ someone took the chance t’ steal some of your spotlight. That’s why John I’m not worried about my team’s chances at Survivor Series because they all wanna be a part of my team for one reason, not just t’ ride my coat tails for an opportunity in a match like this at an event like the Survivor Series. I just hope guys that no matter how great a performance you put in, you won’t get any of the credit. It’ll be him. Just like always, all the attention will be heaped on the amazing John Cena, however you don’t have t’ worry about that. Why you ask? Well there’s a very straight forward answer t’ that question. That being because your team won’t come away with any credit. You won’t come out with any credit for the simple reason that my team will emerge victorious at your expense. Disagree with me all you want that doesn’t change the fact it’s gonna happen.

Cena smirks again, seemingly amused by Punk’s confidence.

CM Punk:
John if I were you I’d listen carefully ‘cause as invincible as I’m sure you an’ your deluded fans may be you need a reality check. There’s a ton of people back there, in that audience an’ sat at home who want nothing more than t’ see you disappear. I might not have my whole team settled yet John but I’ve had a queue of guys begging me t’ be on my team an’ get you off of this show ever since Tazz broke the bank an’ the respect of the locker room t’ make you come here. I’m sure it’s hard for you t’ understand John in the cloud of ignorance you live in but at Survivor Series you’re gonna find out first hand just how much hate there is for you. You’re gonna find out how much those guys back there who actually have talent and are willing t’ work their asses off to earn their stripes despise you an’ want you gone f’ good.

*Mixed*

CM Punk: Then John a statement will be made. When we’ve defeated you, the spotlight in which you’ve stolen from ev’ryone in this company will shift t’ those who actually deserve it, people like me. See you wouldn’t think it but John Cena isn’t the World Heavyweight Champion, I am. I’m the real star of this show, not you. At Survivor Series I have the chance to expose you John and I assure you along with the rest of my team whoever that might include will do just that. You an’ Tazz might think this was a great idea, bring you over here, give you a warm up for a title shot then become World Champion at Night of Champions, well John it wasn’t. In fact it was a really bad idea. See ev’rything I’ve said about you is right there for all t’ see. The only thing is, an’ Tazz I hope you’re hearing this too. When you were on Raw we didn’t really care about you hogging the limelight but when you came over here we all sat up an’ said we’re not gonna let that happen here. What Tazz did when he made you that offer was start a movement, a movement against you John. Guys like Shelton Benjamin have stepped up, an’ last week we saw something from him we’ve never seen, something we’ve certainly not seen in the last few months if ever.

Punk stares intently down at Cena, and he too now is taking Punk’s words seriously.

CM Punk:
Tazz might’ve thought this was all going to work out with you becoming the World Champion, well he couldn’t be more wrong. You described this as a war, you’re right. It’s an all out war, a war we’ll win John t’ get you off of our show.

*Mixed*

John Cena: You wan’ a war Punk? You got it!

Christian steps forward and takes the stick off Cena, surprising his team captain.

Christian:
Punk I think it’s about time you shut your mouth.

*Big Pop*

Christian: I think it’s about time we all shut the hell up an’ get down t’ business, which brings me t’ my big brother Edge.

*Major Heat*

Christian: You might wanna be a coward Adam, but last week you jumped me f’ the last time. It turns out screwing me out of the world title at No Mercy, which for the record Punk I’ve not forgot about by the way, last week he jumped Tomko in the back then attacked me like the gutless son of a bitch he is as I was walking down t’ the ring.

*More Boos*

Christian: That might be your style Adam but it’s not mine. T’night we’re doin’ things my way. That’s why I’m callin’ you out right now, if you’ve got the guts t’ fight man t’ man that is.

*Big Pop*

Christian: I’m not gonna wait ‘til Survivor Series bro’. I’ll walk back there an’ fight y’right there if I have to.

Cena doesn’t like the idea and tries to calm Christian down, blocking him off by the ropes.

?:
HEY!

The camera cuts to a shot of Tazz walking out to the stage all business with a microphone hand, and there’s some serious tension between him, Punk & Del Rio-Ramirez. Christian backs down but still doesn’t look happy. Tazz & Punk take a long look at each other.

Tazz:
Y’know I think we all need t’ calm down. There’s a whole lot o’ things been said, Punk that are way out o’ line. As f’ you C’, f’ obvious reasons there’s no way I’m lettin’ you an’ Edge anywhere near each other t’night.

*Heat*

Christian doesn’t look happy at all but Tazz means business.

Tazz:
With that said I have made a few matches f’ t’night that I think some o’ you are gonna be int’rested in. Now just ‘cause you’re not gonna be in action t’night C’ doesn’t mean Edge won’t. Later on he’ll be goin’ one on one with the United States Champion an’ King of the Ring, Matt Sydal.

*Big Pop*

Sydal looks happy with that, nodding his head in the ring while Christian shakes his head.

Tazz:
As f’ you Punk an’ your rookie, you’re gonna get the chance t’ get some experience as a team f’ Survivor Series ‘cause you’re gonna be takin’ on the team of Bobby Lashley an’ Charlie Haas.

*More Cheers*

Lashley & Haas nod their heads defiantly, clearly up for the challenge with Punk & Del Rio-Ramirez unsure how to react.

Tazz:
Now that leaves me with you John but maybe you’ll wanna make this decision huh Punk or maybe I should just check if it’s okay first before I go an’ make it just in case y’think I’ve got some sort of agenda.

CM Punk: Y’know what boss? You go ahead, do what you want, you always do anyway. Thinking about it though both me an’ Sydal have got matches t’night, an’ Cena’s not a cruiserweight. That means there’s only one title left. Why don’t you go ahead an’ give him a match with Beth Phoenix?

Tazz: You’re a funny guy y’know Punk? Actually I’ve got another idea. See earlier Punk y’talked ‘bout how Shelton Benjamin stepped up as y’put it, well t’night he’s really gonna get a chance t’ step up when he goes one on one with JOHN CENA.

*Big Pop*

Christian: Wait, that’s these guys taken care of, what y’got lined up f’ me?

Tazz: C’, you’re not in the right frame o’ mind dog. I think it’s best you stay out o’ the ring t’night. In fact I think it’s f’ the best if you just take the night off an’ take some time t’ chill.

Christian sn-iggers and shakes his head.

Christian:
Fine. If that’s the way you wanna play it, fine by me, but I promise y’this boss, one way or another Edge is gonna get what’s comin’ to ‘im.

Tazz: Maybe but that ain’t gonna be t’night. As for the rest of ya, good luck.

“13” plays and Tazz takes his leave. Christian barges his way past Cena and leaves the ring as he and the rest of the team look up at Punk & Del Rio-Ramirez with game faces on all around.


*Video Promo*

We’re shown of a split screen with the Cruiserweight Champion, a smug Johnny Jeter on one side with his rookie, Yoshi Tatsu and in the other is the very focused looking J-Red with his seemingly unhappy mentor, Chavo Guerrero, all of which are making their way through the back with the Cruiserweight Championship on the line when we come back.


*Commercial Break*


*Video Recap*
From Last Week

Number One Contendership Battle Royal for the Cruiserweight Championship
Featuring: Santino Marella, J-Red, Yoshi Tatsu, Super Crazy, Paul London, Jimmy Yang, Sonjay Dutt, Chavo Guerrero, Jamie Noble, Kid Kash & Brian Kendrick

Johnny Jeter was sitting quite comfortably at the announce table with his Cruiserweight title resting on it as the thick & fast action went on in front of him while he told Striker & Cole how he couldn’t care less who won the Battle Royal as he’d beat whoever the winner was next week anyway.

As the action went on, Santino helped out Red against his mentor, but after putting Chavo down, Marella caught Red off guard and tried to eliminate him, grabbing him and tossing him over the ropes. Red held on to the top rope, dangling against the apron, much to Santino’s surprise when he turned round, thinking he’d eliminated him. He went right back to end Red’s chances but the rookie wasn’t done, using his upper body weight to flip back and kick the Italian in the face.

It sent Santino away in a daze as Red steadied himself on the apron, then hit a springboard to hit the Red Alert to a huge pop. The crowd loved it and cheered for a fair few seconds. Red went back after his mentor, but he found himself in some pain when he went for standing shooting star press only to see Chavo raise his knees up in to his stomach. After doing a number on his rookie, Chavo’s attention was directed to Santino as the Italian recovered after the modified Red Alert. Chavo was in complete control and connected with a Brainbuster only then to see Santino roll to safety and dodge a subsequent attempt for a Frog Splash.

Marella rolled to the ropes in front of Jeter and used them to help himself back up to his feet. Jeter all of a sudden stood up and walked over to him with his title. He held it up with one hand and pointed to it, telling Santino it was his as Chavo & Red were getting back own their feet. Jeter carried on having a go at Santino, giving Chavo the chance to sneak up behind the Italian and lift him up off his feet and over the top, eliminating him to a ton of heat and the amusement of the Cruiserweight Champion. He was laughing at Santino by his feet and then took his title with him as he walked round to the ramp.

He watched on from the stage as Chavo & Red at went at it for the right to face him next week. The crowd were firmly behind the rookie but he was given a lesson by his mentor, falling foul of a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker followed by the Three Amigo’s. J-Red was in deep trouble as Chavo then went to the dizzy heights of the top rope again, pointing to the heavens before jumping off to a chorus of boos to this time hit the Frog Splash. Red was all but done as he rolled to the ropes with Jeter looking on awkwardly now with Chavo looking up at him gesturing the title would be his. Red slowly used the ropes to help get himself back up to his feet with the crowd watching nervously.

Chavo was licking his lips looking as if he was going to explode any minute, and as Red stood up, his mentor charged at him for a clothesline but Red lifted him up over his shoulder and over the ropes. The fans were cheering but Chavo landed on his feet on the apron somewhat awkwardly. Red turned round and blocked a right hand attempt before nailing Chavo with one of his own, putting the Mexican on one knee, still on the apron. As Chavo then tried to stand up, Red ran in to the corner, jumped up to the top rope and used it as a springboard to dropkick his mentor off the apron to win the match and earn himself a shot at the Cruiserweight title next week.

The crowd exploded as Red dropped his head in to his hands in shock with Jeter smirking on the stage, not seeming too impressed. Red stood up to a big pop to get his arm raised as his shocked mentor sat up in horror on the floor. Red looked at him with a smile on his face before looking up at Jeter, and the Cruiserweight Champion lifted his title up in the air and nodded back defiantly at his opponent for next week with Chavo furious on the floor.


*Cut to the Arena*



*The Opening Match*
WWE Cruiserweight Championship
J-Red w/Chavo Guerrero
vs. Johnny Jeter (c) w/Yoshi Tatsu


Chavo was looking on anxiously as his rookie took it right to the Cruiserweight Champion with the Biloxi crowd right behind the challenger. Red was on fire, coming close to winning the title on a couple of occasions, but just as he looked all set to finish the job with the Red Alert, Jeter sidestepped it and drilled him out of nowhere with a tornado DDT. The groggy champion couldn’t take advantage straight away, giving Red just about enough time to get his shoulder up at the count of two. Jeter couldn’t believe it as he lifted his head up off the mat and looked over at the ref full of anguish & disappointment.

Chavo wasn’t happy either, clearly not supporting his rookie with the same said for Yoshi Tatsu, smiling at seeing his mentor not so full of himself for a change. Jeter though quickly shrugged off the disappointment and looked to put his challenger to bed, standing up and going for a springboard moonsault. Red though lifted his knees up in to his opponent’s chest, getting a pop from the crowd. As both men then picked themselves up, Red ducked a right hand, ran the ropes and came running back to send Jeter down courtesy of a 360 spinning heel kick.

The crowd & Jeter enjoyed that. Chavo didn’t and could only look on as Red then pulled Jeter up and fired him hard in to the corner. He ran in at him in a flash, but Jeter lifted his boot up in to the challenger’s face, sending him staggering away from the corner. Jeter then pulled himself up to the second rope before leaping off for a diving crossbody, but Red caught him and rolled through for a cover of his own. Jeter kicked out and once again they picked themselves up with the Cruiserweight Champion firing his opponent in the ropes, but Red came back with an incredible counter, a tilt-a-whirl headscissors in to a DDT, a satellite DDT.

The crowd were loving it and the challenger chose not to go for a cover and went to the apron, seemingly getting ready for the Red Alert. Tatsu was all smiles again while Chavo was seething, watching on as Red watched the struggling, dazed Jeter try to get up on to his knees. He struggled up to his feet, trying to find his balance as Red then hit the springboard on the top rope only for Chavo to jump up and push him down to a ton of heat from the crowd as the ref called for the bell, giving Red the win by DQ.

The crowd were livid as Chavo entered the ring with a face like thunder and dragged Red up to his feet to drill him with a brainbuster. Jeter couldn’t believe it and just stared in shock at Guerrero who glared back remorselessly at him. Chavo then left the ring and didn’t look back as Jeter was then passed the title by the referee to a ton of heat. The champion took a look down at the squirming challenger with a smirk on his face with Tatsu so not happy, and the camera then cut to Chavo walking to the back before going back to a shot of a Jeter holding his title aloft, much to the disgust of the Biloxi crowd.

Winner: J-Red by DQ, but still WWE Cruiserweight Champion, Johnny Jeter.


*Commercial Break*


A smug Chavo Guerrero is walking through the back and towards Josh Matthews who just by chance has a microphone ready & waiting.

Josh Matthews:
Chavo, could I get a word with you?

Chavo Guerrero: You wanna a word Josh? I’ll give you more than one. How’s this? Did you just see what happened t’ my rookie just then? Maybe if he listened t’ me he’d be the Cruiserweight Champion right now.

Josh Matthews: Wait, you’re the reason he’s not. Why did you do that?

Chavo Guerrero: Alright Josh. You wanna know why I just did what I did? It’s real simple. He’s done nothing but get lucky an’ disrespect me since he came here. I wasn’t going t’ let him get any luckier. I’m not gonna sit back an’ watch someone like him come off the streets, walk in here disrespect me, my family an’ what we stand for an’ become the Cruiserweight Champion. Do you know how many great names have held that title? He doesn’t deserve t’ join that list. He needs t’ learn some respect, an’ after t’night he will.

All of a sudden Chavo’s knocked down to his knees and there we see a furious J-Red stomp all over his mentor.

J-Red:
WHAT Y’PLAYIN’ AT HUH? YOU THINK YOU’RE A TOUGH GUY NOW CHAVO? HUH?

A group of officials hit the scene and pull Red off but he tries to fight free but he can’t as Chavo squirms about on the floor trying to get up to his knees, fuming as he stares at his pissed off rookie glaring at him with nothing but contempt.


*Video Recap*
From Last Week

Number One Contendership Battle Royal for the Cruiserweight Championship
Featuring: Santino Marella, J-Red, Yoshi Tatsu, Super Crazy, Paul London, Jimmy Yang, Sonjay Dutt, Chavo Guerrero, Jamie Noble, Kid Kash & Brian Kendrick

Red was on fire and came close to eliminating Kendrick before Chavo pulled him away and caught him with a Brainbsuter. Chavo loved every second if it too, laughing at his motionless rookie. Kendrick didn’t last much longer though as he was sent tumbling over the ropes by a cross body from his former partner, Paul London. However the momentum sent London over too and they hit the floor together, and as they made it to their feet on the floor, Kendrick got in London’s face, leading to them brawling all the way to the back with officials trying to pull them apart.


***

There’s some trouble in the back between former partners Paul London & Brian Kendrick, pushing & shoving each other when Tazz walks in to the shot and in-between them.

Tazz:
HEY, CUT IT OUT. WHAT THE HELL’S THE MATTER WITH YOU TWO HUH?

London & Kendrick stare at each other, still angry.

Tazz:
Do you guys have any idea how much I used t’ love sittin’ out there watchin’ you dominate the tag division? What the hell happened? You weren’t just one of the best teams I’ve ever seen but one of the best champions I’ve been lucky enough t’ watch. It was an honour t’ sit out there an’ watch you do what you did better than any other team in the company an’ still could be.

Brian Kendrick: Yeah well that ain’t gonna happen boss.


*Cut to the Arena*


*Match #2*
Paul London vs. Brian Kendrick


The former tag team partners put on quite the show, both well & truly fired up for this one with a very interested Tazz shown at the start watching the contest from the comfort of his office. He wasn’t disappointed either like the fans as London & Kendrick threw everything they had at each other. It was Kendrick who started off the match better but London came back in to it, and as the match went on he was the one in the ascendency. After a trademark dropsault he followed it up in a flash with a standing shooting star press, only to see his former partner get his shoulder up at two.

London took it on the chin and tried to wrap up the win, dragging his opponent towards the corner before scaling the dizzy heights of the top rope. Kendrick though put up a roadblock, sitting up and throwing himself in to the ropes, resulting in London falling in to a seated position on the turnbuckle pads. Kendrick took the time to recover before climbing up to the second rope, then the top before setting off a big cheer in the crowd courtesy of a superplex. He couldn’t take advantage immediately and when he did manage to stretch his arm out across London, he was denied by a split second as London just about managed to get his shoulder up.

Kendrick was gutted as he slowly lifted his head up off the mat and looked over in desperation at the referee. Having given it their all they were both feeling the effects, but Kendrick could see the finishing line. As London started to show signs of movement, he too tried to pick his way back up. He gave London a helping hand, pulling him in to position for the Sliced Bread. The fans were mainly booing as he then ran the ropes, but London countered and threw him down to the mat after running off the ropes. London took some brief respite as he watched his former friend & partner struggle back up to his feet, and as Kendrick turned round, London exploded out of the corner with a super kick.

Again the fans were cheering and London fell on top of his partner for a tired cover, reaching to the side and barely hooking the leg, and somehow someway Kendrick just about managed to lift his shoulder up before the ref could count to three. London was devastated, and so were the fans. He shrugged off the disappointment, standing up but showing the effects of the match as he did so to again drag Kendrick towards the corner. Again there was no resistance from Kendrick, but this time he wasn’t moving. He was in a bad way with London climbing up to the top above him, and with the crowd cheering, London felt the moment and went for a 450 splash, and as he came down through the air, Kendrick denied him again by lifting his knees up in to his opponent’s gut.

The fans were disappointed and again the shot went back to a shocked Tazz in the back, getting caught up in the match. As both men back in the rang came round and tried to make their way back up to their feet, looking exhausted mentally & physically, Kendrick went for an irish whip only to see London reverse it and fire him in to the opposite corner. London followed in and ran in to a double boot lift to the face, sending him staggering out of the corner. Kendrick then pulled himself up to the second rope but didn’t count on London turning round and running right at him. Kendrick quickly leapfrogged over him, and as both men turned round, London once again went for a super kick.

Kendrick ducked it though and wasted no time in nailing him with a super kick of his own. London was out and Kendrick knew it. He could see it was all but over and chose to make sure of it, reaching down to drag his former partner up, immediately setting him up for the Sliced Bread. He held on tight this time and ran in to the corner, hit off the ropes and drove London’s head in to the mat. London was out and Kendrick wasted no time in turning him over to go for the cover and getting the three count to pick up an incredibly hard fought victory.

“Man With a Plan” played to largely heat with some cheers as he stood up looking tired but relived to have won that one while a starry eyed London lifted his head up off the mat behind him. Kendrick threw both his arms up in the air and walked over to the ropes with Tazz shown again in his office, nodding his head, clearly impressed at what he saw. As Kendrick then turned round, he saw his former friend sitting up, obviously suffering. They both looked at each other, not sure what to make of what just went down.

Kendrick stepped away from the ropes, and London watched him step closer towards him. He then shocked Kendrick by offering him his hand as he made it up to one knee. Kendrick didn’t know what to make of it and looked at the crowd in shock. As he turned back, London still had his hand out, and to the shock of everyone including Kendrick, he shook it to a decent pop. Kendrick then left the ring, still surprised as London then pulled himself up with Tazz again shown looking on, smiling & nodding now as the shot went back to Kendrick, turning round on the ramp and looking back all confused at London.

Winner: Brian Kendrick by pinfall.


*Commercial Break*


Josh Matthews is standing by in the divas locker room where he’s joined by Michelle McCool and her rookies, Alicia Fox & Rosa Mendes, all of whom are looking in a very relaxed mood this evening.

Josh Matthews:
At this time I’m joined by the number one contender for the W-W-E Diva’s Championship, Michelle McCool who last week beat Beth Phoenix’s rookie Nikki Roxx to earn herself a shot at the title, but t’night in just a matter of moments in fact Michelle the Diva’s Champion is in action herself and I hear that she’s out to send you a message after how you went about getting that shot last week.

Michelle McCool: Josh do I look like I care how I got my title shot? No I don’t do I, an’ why should I? Beth’s just upset that I outsmarted her, not that that’s difficult. She might be the Diva’s Champion f’ now an’ she might be this big scary Glamazon we’re all supposed t’ be afraid of, but Josh as tough as she may be I’m intelligent. I’m very intelligent. Last week I found a way t’ get what I wan’ed an’ I got it. That’s just the first step. Now I’ve got a shot at the diva’s title Beth should be the one who’s scared f’ a change ‘cause she knows intellectually she can’t compete with me. Those losers out there might not see that as bein’ important Josh but trust me it is. But hey, that’s just gonna make it sweeter when I do become the Diva’s Champion, an’ believe me I will. It’s just a matter of time.

McCool turns and laughs along with her rookies before turning back to Josh.

Michelle McCool:
Y’know Josh I think I’m gonna go do some homework on Beth, see what she’s got, not that it’s gonna be enough when she gets in the ring with me an’ I become the new Diva’s Champion.

McCool & Co laugh again amongst themselves as they walk past a somewhat surprised Josh Matthews and out of the room.


*Cut to the Arena*


*Match #3*
Non-Title Match
Beth Phoenix w/Nikki Roxx
vs. Jillian Hall


The Diva’s Champion entered the arena to a big pop but she wasn’t in a good mood at all, meaning bad news for Jillian. Her mood worsened as before the bell was rung she saw Michelle McCool stroll out to the stage along with her rookie, Alicia Fox & Rosa Mendes. Beth and her rookie, Nikki Foxx were both clearly still smarting from last week, and that just made Beth even angrier, so much so she made light work of Jillian. After trying to catch Beth out when the bell did ring, Jillian found herself in deep trouble.

She ran at her from behind and barged her down to the mat. However when she pulled Beth up and went for an irish whip, she found out why she’s called The Glamazon. Beth reversed it with ease and nailed her with a double axe handle to the chest, and as Jillian then picked herself back up, the intense Diva’s Champion stomped her ferociously in the stomach before slamming her down in to the canvas courtesy of a gut-wrench suplex. Jillian was in all kinds of trouble and the angry Phoenix wasn’t about to let her catch her breath.

McCool was even surprised as she watched Beth apply a cloverleaf to her opponent, making Jillian scream out in agony as she bravely fought her way to the ropes. Beth was in no mood to mess around and didn’t let her make her own way up, dragging her up and away from the ropes before lifting her up high above her head to a big pop, concerning McCool even more on the stage. Without hesitation, The Glamazon dropped Jillian harshly down in to the mat.

While Jillian was still chewing the canvas, Beth went right back to work, dragging her up and finishing the match with the Grand Slam, sending a strong warning to her now worried number one contender at the top of the stage. The dominant champion was then passed her title and rose it high up in the air in McCool and her rookies’ direction with the crowd cheering on, and McCool’s smile was all gone as she stared back at the defiant champion and Nikki Roxx in the ring.

Winner: Beth Phoenix by pinfall.


*Cut Backstage*


“Captain Charisma” Christian is roaming the halls, still looking very serious indeed, and as he walks up the hallway he bumps up to his fellow Canadians, Petey Williams & Johnny Devine, interrupting their conversation.

Christian:
Hey, you seen Edge?

Petey Williams: So what if we have?

Christian: Don’t mess with me I ain’t in the mood. You seen him or not?

Petey Williams: Not.

Christian’s not happy with the answer he gets and reluctantly turns to walk away.

Petey Williams:
What a loser.

Christian snaps and turns round, nailing Petey to the floor and blocks a right hand from Devine to send him down to the floor too alongside his partner. Captain Charisma glares down intensely at the both of them when Tazz walks in to the scene, not looking happy at all.

Tazz:
Hey, what did I tell you earlier huh?

Christian: The question is boss, what did I tell you earlier? I said Edge was gonna pay f’ what he did last week an’ I meant it.

Tazz: Yeah an’ I said that ain’t gonna be t’night an’ you were gonna get the hell out o’ here in case somethin’ like this happened. Now I’m not askin’ ya C’, I’m tellin’ ya, go home.

Christian’s not happy about it one bit and just stares back at the defiant Tazz.

Christian:
You’re gonna play it like this huh?

Tazz: That’s how I’ve gotta play it. I ain’t happy ‘bout it either but I’ve gotta do what’s best f’ the show. I can’t afford any trouble t’night wit’ Survivor Series in just a couple o’ weeks. You t’night, as long as you’re here, you’re trouble.

Christian: I’m trouble huh? What Adam did last week, that’s alright is it? That’s bull an’ you know it. One way or another, an’ yeah it might not be t’night, he’s gonna get what’s comin’ to ‘im, mark my words.

A very angry Christian turns round and heads back up the hall, shoving some metal pipes leaning against the wall down to the floor, creating quite the racket as Petey & Devine sit up with Tazz not looking happy either.


*Video Promo*

We cut to the back and we see a fired up Team Miz (The Miz, Jack Swagger, Dolph Ziggler & Heath Slater) walking through the halls as Swagger gets ready for action against Elijah Burke, and the camera switches to a shot of Elijah Burke along with his fiancée, Layla, both looking calm as they too head towards the ring as action awaits after the break!


*Commercial Break*


*Match #4*
Elijah Burke w/Layla
vs. Jack Swagger w/The Miz, Dolph Ziggler & Heath Slater


Team Miz was looking very confident of Swagger’s chances as they made their way down to the ring, but Burke too was all smiles as he entered the arena with his fiancée, Layla who was also smiling brightly. In what was an entertaining and even contest for the most part, Team Miz made their presence felt as Burke gained the upper hand in the closing stages. He was getting on top of Swagger and came within milliseconds of victory after a reversing an irish whip and connecting with a lifting spinning sit down spine-buster. The Miz, Ziggler & Slater were relieved men as they saw Swagger get his shoulder up to the surprise of the crowd and especially Burke.

With Layla willing him on, Burke shrugged off the disappointment and went right back to work, trying to finish his opponent off. He went for the big finish, pulling Swagger up and firing him in to the turnbuckle pads before pulling down his own pads, the ones protecting his knees for the Elijah Express. The fans were cheering but The Miz panicked and jumped up on to the apron, coming to his team-mates aid, distracting Burke. He turned and saw Miz on the apron, but Ziggler reached inside and grabbed his left boot, sweeping Burke’s feet from under him while the ref was attempting to deal with The Miz.

The fans booed as the ref continued remonstrating with Mr. Hollywood, to no affect. Layla wasn’t happy and tried yelling from where she was standing at the ref, but all she could do was look on as her fiancée picked himself back up to see Swagger running at him to take him down with a running knee lift. Burke clawed his way back up as the focused Swagger gave him a helping hand before planting him with an overhead belly to belly suplex. Boos rang round the arena as Swagger then smirked at his team-mates before going for the Ankle Lock, and he got it locked in. Burke was in the middle of the ring with nowhere to go.

He was in obvious pain but tried to fight it again with Layla encouraging him from the outside. The crowd too got behind him as he eventually dragged himself towards the ropes to grab them and hold on to them for dear life, getting a big pop from the crowd. Swagger & Co weren’t happy at all, Swagger especially. The All-American American was livid and tried to drag Burke away from the ropes, grabbing the leg again, but Burke turned himself and kicked Swagger back, putting him on one knee.

Swagger wasn’t down for long though and ran right back at Burke as he used the ropes to help him on to his knees, then for momentum as he rolled through, grabbed Swaggers legs and rolled him up, holding on to his tights as the ref made the count to three to the surprise of most people in the arena. The ref called for the bell and “Don’t Waste My Time” played to a decent sized pop with Team Miz looking stunned. The delighted & amused Burke slid out of the ring immediately as the pissed off All-American American stood up to see the ref join Burke on the outside and raise his arm in victory with Layla likewise.

The Miz drove his fists furiously in to the canvas and then slid in the ring to join Swagger in trying to complain to the ref, again to the amusement of Burke & Layla as they backed up the ramp. Ziggler & Slater then joined them in the ring as Burke just laughed back at them, but as he got to the top of the stage, “Sexy Boy” blasted out to a huge pop with Shawn Michaels & Kofi Kingston walking out to the stage, and The Heartbreak Kid had a microphone in hand, looking in a relaxed mood for a change, not that The Miz was in one now his rival and opposition team captain at Survivor Series had shown up.

Winner: Elijah Burke by pinfall.

Shawn Michaels: Miz my man it looks like you an’ your guys are fallin’ in to a losin’ habit goin’ in t’ Survivor Series an’ I gotta say I’m lovin’ it.

Team Miz aren’t enjoying being mocked by Michaels as he stands there with the also amused Kofi. Burke & Layla join them at the top of the stage and remain there with Michaels shaking Burke’s hand.

Shawn Michaels:
Now I’m gonna let you into a secret Miz. Earlier t’night I went t’ this man right here (grabbing Burke’s shoulder) an’ asked him t’ join me an’ Kofi in two weeks at Survivor Series.

Burke’s smiling & nodding alongside Michaels.

Shawn Michaels:
And it gives me great pleasure t’ say that he said yes.

*Pop*

Shawn Michaels: But Miz he’s not the only one. Last week I went t’ our general manager an’ I made him an offer, well more of a proposal, a proposal t’ sign one of the most talented athletes this business t’day. It turns out that Tazz hadn’t just heard of him but he jumped at the chance t’ sign ‘im. He’s a guy I’ve known for a long time. He’s a guy I trained back at Texas an’ he’s a guy I know’ll go an’ be one of the best t’ grace the W-W-E, an’ Miz, at Survivor Series he’s gonna join us three against you. And as luck would have it he’s here t’night. I want ev’ryone in this place t’ make some noise f’ not just the final piece of the jigsaw f’ Team Michaels at Survivor Series but a warm welcome f’ one of the best in the business right now. I give t’ you BRYAN DANIELSON.

‘The American Dragon’ Bryan Danielson walks out to a pretty decent pop with a lot of the crowd knowing who he is or just doing what Shawn told them to. He shakes hands with Kofi & Burke before giving Michaels a hug while Team Miz look on with Slater not even sure who he is.

Shawn Michaels:
Boys, you have a good night.

“Sexy Boy” blasts out as a happy looking Team Michaels & Layla all share a joke or two as they turn round and walk to the back with Team Miz still not happy one bit in the ring.


*Video Promo*

It’s time for a split screen with Mickie Sydal and his girlfriend, Mickie James on one side and Edge on the other as they all make their way through the back, both with game faces on (Edge especially) as we prepare for Sydal versus Edge when we come back.


*Commercial Break*


*Video Recap*
From Last Week

There’s some commotion and the camera pans to the right where we see a group of officials standing over Tyson Tomko who’s lying almost out cold on the floor when Christian in his ring gear runs in to the shot.


Christian:
What the hell happened?

Tazz walks over to the scene.

Tazz:
What’s goin’ on?

Christian: Y’know I think I’ve got a pretty good idea, an’ guess what? I’m gonna deal with it right now.

The furious Christian goes to walk away when Tazz grabs his arm.

Tazz:
Wait, your match is next, what are you doin’?

Christian: You wanna know what I’m doin’? Fine. I’m goin’ out there an’ I’m gonna call Adam out, then I’m gonna make him pay f’ what he’s just done.

Captain Charisma storms off with Tazz not happy, but he turns round to see how Tomko’s doing. The officials too check on him as he comes to looking all starry eyed.

***

“If you close your eyes your life. . .”

Here comes one angry ‘Captain Charisma’ Christian, stomping out to the stage to a huge pop with The Empire looking on from the ring. He stops and looks in to the crowd with a face like thunder and he’s holding a microphone.


Christian:
Cut the music.

The music stops and the fans cheer, but Christian’s clearly in no mood after what happened moments ago in the back.

Christian:
Sorry fellas but you’re just gonna have t’ wait f’ a second ‘cause there’s somethin’ I’ve gotta do before I come down there by myself if I have to an’ beat both your asses. Maybe yours too Willy.

*Big Pop*

The Empire clearly aren’t worried and again laugh between themselves.

Christian:
See it seems Tomko, my problem solver who just so you all know the deal, my partner for what’s supposed t’ be a match right now against those two tea sipping imbeciles won’t be able to compete t’night ‘cause someone just jumped him in the back, ironically giving me a problem.

*Heat*

Christian: But hey, f’ the rec’d guys I don’t think it was you. I’m sure as hell I know who it is. I’m sure as hell it’s the same bitter brother of my mine who cost me the World Heavyweight Championship at No Mercy, the guy you might know as Edge.

*Major Heat*

Christian: Stupidly I thought all the crap between us would’ve gone out of the window after I beat him at SummerSlam but I guess not. I should’ve known better, but Adam, listen up. . .

The man himself, ‘The Rated-R Superstar’ Edge bursts out from the back behind Christian and knocks him down to his knees with a forearm club to the back. The fans boo while The Empire laugh as they look on from the ring. Edge means business as he puts the boots to his brother, one after another and Christian can’t defend himself. He backs away to more boos from the crowd as Christian struggles up to his knees with Edge watching on sadistically. Captain Charisma picks himself back up, looking in real pain, and as he turns round, Edge charges at him and takes him down with a spear on the stage to a barrage of heat from the capacity crowd.

On his knees he stares at his brother and Christian isn’t moving as Edge tells him “it’s not over bro’, not even close.” There’s no remorse whatsoever from The Rated-R Superstar as he coldly gazes at his brother with Barrett & McIntyre laughing away in the ring. “Metalingus” blasts out and the twisted Edge stands back up as officials along with Tazz come out to check on Christian, and the Smackdown General Manager orders Edge to the back, which he does after giving his boss a very worrying look.



*Cut to the Arena*


*Match #5*
Non-Title Match
Matt Sydal w/Mickie James
vs. Edge


The crowd were very much in to this one, and so were Sydal & Edge. The Rated-R Superstar was especially fired up, and only as the match went on did the laid back United States Champion get in to the same mindset. He shocked Edge in the early minutes, only angering the Canadian even more. The Rated-R Superstar seemed desperate to make the youngster suffer, and he gave him a real battering, but he still found him coming back for more. The King of the Ring frustrated the hell out of Edge, especially when he came diving off the ropes looking for a cross body, only to be met with a dropkick.

The crowd loved that and Sydal was finally able to get some momentum going as both he & Edge then picked themselves back up. The King of the Ring had an irish whip reversed but caught the oncoming Edge with an extended elbow as he held on to the ropes. As Edge was sent back pedalling away, Sydal ran past him in to the opposite set of ropes to springboard and catch him with a cross body of his own. It worked as he forced Edge back down to the mat, but he kicked out. Sydal was back on his feet first and caught Edge with a series of stiff kicks to the gut, putting him down to the mat.

The struggling Canadian crawled to the corner, gasping for breath, but as he stood up, Sydal charged in at him and nailed him with a hard elbow to the face, sending Edge slumping down the pads. With the crowd cheering, the United States Champion wasn’t done and went back to the opposite corner before racing back across the ring to level Edge right in the face with a sit down dropkick. That had to smart and the fans loved it! Sydal was feeling it and dragged Edge away from the ropes to go for a cover, but The Rated-R Superstar wasn’t done, getting his shoulder up to deny Sydal another impressive win.

With Mickie James getting behind him, her boyfriend tried to take full advantage of the situation he found himself in. He struggled to drag Edge back up but managed it, pulling him in to place for a tornado DDT, but Edge countered it, throwing Sydal down to the mat. Edge wisely used the time to shake off the cobwebs as Sydal clawed his way back up. As Sydal then turned round, the pissed off Canadian ran at him only to run in to a feint enzuigiri in to a head-scissors takedown. The crowd loved that and so did Mickie!

Sydal & Edge again clawed their way back up with Sydal in full swing, taking Edge down with a diving leg lariat, but as Edge picked himself back up again, Sydal hit the ropes and came running back in to a ferocious big boot that got rammed down his throat. That cut short the King of the Ring’s momentum, and as we drew towards the closing stages, he too looked in bad shape. Edge was well on top but furious having seen Sydal get his shoulder up at two after an Edgecution. The Rated-R Superstar was livid & desperate to put his opponent way, retreating to the corner and stalking him for a spear. The fans were booing and tried to warn Sydal, as did Mickie.

Edge was intense as hell, eyes glued on the struggling United States Champion. As soon as he made it back up and turned round, Edge stormed out the corner and tore him in half with the spear, but the momentum sent Sydal rolling under the bottom rope to the floor. Edge wasn’t happy initially as Mickie went round to check on her boyfriend, but he then urged the ref to count Sydal out with the cover not an option. The resilient youngster again frustrated him as he dragged himself back in to the ring just as the ref got to the count of nine. Edge was on the verge of losing it as he glared angrily at the suffering United States Champion.

Mickie was looking concerned as Edge again got ready for a spear, and as Sydal somehow made it back up, he saw Edge charging towards him and caught him with a roundhouse kick, met by a huge roar in the stands. Sydal was still struggling and dropped to his knees for several seconds before dragging Edge towards the corner and climbing up to the top rope with the Canadian motionless beneath him. The crowd were on their feet as Sydal looked in to the stands before leaping up in to the air and coming down for the Shooting Star Press, but Edge denied him by rolling to the side, resulting in Sydal crash landing in to the canvas.

Both men were in agony, and as they then tried to make it back up to their feet, a huge pop broke out in the crowd and we saw Christian charging down the ramp. He slid in to the ring and went right for the stunned Edge, nailing him with a right hand and then another as his brother got back up after the first one. Sydal was still on his knees as the ref called for the bell, but Christian was like a man possessed. He dropped to his knees and pummelled his brother with a series of right hands.

The referee was then helped out by another four of them as they ran down to help him pull Captain Charisma off of Edge, and they just managed it at a struggle as the stunned Sydal made it back up to his feet to hear Edge announced as the winner by DQ with an angry Christian being dragged back up the ramp while shouting down at Edge telling him he’s not done with him yet, not by a long shot. Edge sat up dazed and looked up at his brother like he didn’t know what had happened with Sydal & Mickie still shocked.

Winner: Matt Sydal by pinfall.


*Video Promo*

We’re shown a shot of one half of the WWE Tag Team Champions, Harry Smith (dressed casually and without his title belt) walking through the back in a fairly sombre mood along with his rookie & friend, TJ Wilson and his girlfriend, Natalya Neidhart. It looks as if Harry may be heading out to the ring. We’ll find out if that’s the case after the break!


*Commercial Break*


*Video Recap*
From Last Week

The UK Pack
and Harry Smith’s rookie, TJ Wilson along with his girlfriend, Natalya Neidhart are in their locker room with Wilson ready for action. Burchill doesn’t look too happy as he stands alone with Natalya & Smith by TJ’s side.

Harry Smith:
You’re gonna be fine t’night I promise. I know this is your first proper match here but I know just how good you are. Back when we were in Canada t’gether I saw what you could do an’ trust me you have nothing to worry about. You’ve got what it takes t’ do well here, an’ when you beat Dolph Ziggler t’night I’ll be there to raise your arm in victory.

TJ nods his head, believing what he’s hearing with Smith & Natalya clearly right behind him.

TJ Wilson:
Alright let’s do this.

Smith & Natalya give him a brief hug before going to leave the room, and after TJ & Natalya do so, Smith turns back to look at the isolated figure of Burchill.

Harry Smith:
You comin’?

Paul Burchill: Sorry are you talking to me for a change?

Smith goes steps back in the room and lets the door shut.

Harry Smith:
Is there something wrong?

Paul Burchill: Is there something wrong? Now what would give you that impression?

Harry Smith: Well last week for a start. You couldn’t wait to leave the ring after our match. What was all that about?

Paul Burchill: Seriously Harry? You remember you were the one who nearly didn’t turn up, meaning I would have been in a handicap match.

Harry Smith: I apologised for that an’ it’s not as if you had to go it alone.

Paul Burchill: You can apologise all you want, it wouldn’t have been enough if you didn’t turn up, which you nearly didn’t.

Harry Smith: But I did, we won I apologised an’ it’s done. Now are you coming?

Paul Burchill: Really? You can’t see what’s going on here can you?

Harry Smith: What are you talking about?

Smith’s confused as hell and stares at an angry Burchill when TJ & Natalya walk back in, both confused as to what’s going on.

TJ Wilson:
Is ev’rything okay guys?

Paul Burchill: Which one of us are you asking, not that it should be hard to work it out. . . well not f’ me.

Burchill walks past Smith and then shrugs past the shocked Wilson & Neidhart, surprising them even more.

Natalya Neidhart:
What’s going on?

Harry Smith: F’get about him. We’ve gotta get going f’ your match. Ev’rything else can wait. Come on, let’s go.

Smith walks out of the room followed by the uneasy looking Wilson & Natalya.


*Cut to the Arena*


“Rule Britannia”

Out to the stage walks Harry Smith to a decent pop, followed by his rookie, TJ Wilson and his girlfriend, Natalya Neidhart. Smith doesn’t appear to be himself tonight, seemingly having something on his mind. He doesn’t acknowledge the fans and as soon as he enters the ring he walks over to the opposite side to collect a microphone. Wilson & Neidhart are looking a bit concerned, not sure what exactly is going on as the music cuts and Smith walks back in to the centre of the ring.

Harry Smith:
Now I have to be careful how I put this is at might come out wrong but I’m not here t’night to compete, t’night I’m here because I have to straighten things out with my partner.

Smith walks up & down the ring, not looking at the crowd with TJ & Natalya talking amongst themselves, wondering what’s going on.

Harry Smith:
Over the last few weeks I’ve got the impression that there’s some issues or problems Paul has with me. I honestly don’t know what they are but Paul I’m asking you to come out here so we can sort this out before anything gets out of hand.

Smith walks over to the ropes and leans on them waiting for his partner & co-holder of the WWE Tag Team titles.

Harry Smith:
Come on Paul, we need to sort this ou. . .

Paul Burchill does indeed walk out to the stage to a pop, also not in the best of moods tonight as he walks down to the ring. Smith holds the ropes down and allows his partner in, nodding at him as he enters, but Burchill walks straight over to get another microphone before then joining Smith in the centre of the ring.

Paul Burchill:
Harry, I respect that you’re trying to sort things out but are you honestly telling me you don’t know what the problem is?

Harry Smith: I honestly don’t. That’s why I came out here so we can talk things over an’ move on. We’re the tag team champions Paul, we. . .

Paul Burchill: That’s exactly the problem. We are the tag team champions. I’m a tag team champion and so are you, only recently you’ve not been acting like a tag team partner.

Smith looks at Burchill in shock.

Paul Burchill:
I’d rather we weren’t talking about this but the reality is that as of late you’ve taken your eye off the ball.

Harry Smith: What are you talking about?

Paul Burchill: Look, this isn’t personal, it honestly isn’t, but ever since you became a mentor all your attention’s gone on him (pointing at TJ) and catching up with him. You’re old friends, partners even, and Natalya’s family, I get that. My issue is Harry, if it carries on like this we won’t be the tag team champions much longer.

Harry Smith: What? Seriously Paul, w. . .

Paul Burchill: . . . Okay, let me take you back a couple of weeks. We had a match, a match that you only just made it here in time for. . .

Harry Smith: . . . We’ve talked about this. I thought we were okay.

Paul Burchill: We might’ve talked but you didn’t listen. Yes you might just’ve made it in time but you should’ve been here already. This kind of thing didn’t happen until they came along.

Burchill turns to TJ & Natalya almost apologetically.

Paul Burchill:
I know this might sound personal but you have to believe me when I say it’s not. Admittedly I don’t know you all that well but it’s not that I have a problem with you all spending time t’gether, it’s just that it’s affecting us as champions, as a team.

He turns back to Smith who seems to be understanding his partner’s words now.

Paul Burchill:
Can’t you see that Harry? Just imagine that had been a title match and you didn’t show up in time. We could’ve lost the titles and I truly believe that’s not what you want either. That’s what makes what I have t’ say now really difficult.

Smith looks on, confused as to what Burchill’s about to say.

Paul Burchill:
Harry this can’t carry on. You’ve got to make a decision. Either you’re one hundred percent committed to being partners an’ champions or you can throw away the last year for nothing. As long as they’re here, you’re not committed. You can’t be both a tag team champion and a mentor. It just isn’t working, I’m sorry.

*Mixed*

Smith looks over at TJ & Natalya, all looking extremely awkward & confused. TJ though walks over to his buddy and asks for the microphone, and Smith passes it to him.

TJ Wilson:
He’s right Harry. When I got the chance t’ come here, work with you again, it was a dream come true, but he’s right. I don’t wanna be responsible for you guys losing the tag titles. I couldn’t live with that. . . so. . .

“On A Mission”

The Tag Team Champions, Wilson & Natalya all look up at the stage and see The Empire (Wade Barrett, Drew McIntyre, William Regal & Katie Lee) strolling out to the stage to a chorus of boos. Katie’s carrying a Union Jack and the men are all shaking their heads looking appalled with the already frustrated champions as the music cuts.

Wade Barrett:
Just when I thought you two couldn’t be any more of an embarrassment to the U-K, here you are making a fool out of yourselves for the whole world t’ see, it’s pathetic. If you were just making a fool out of yourselves we wouldn’t have a problem, however it’s not just yourselves it’s you’re embarrassing, it’s the U-K and us.

Barrett’s words don’t go down well with the champs at all as they glare up in anger at The Empire.

Wade Barrett:
The best way to describe you is an embarrassment because that’s what you are. Take a look at yourselves. You’re exactly what we despise about this country. It’s like we’ve gone back in time ten years to an edition of Jerry Springer. Well it’s time for you to hear the truth. As embarrassing as you are to ev’ryone back home, my. . . our problem with you goes far deeper than that. From day one when we came to the W-W-E ev’ryone knows we’re British an’ damn proud t’ be. You on the other hand, you might be called The U-K Pack but all you’ve done is suck up to these ignorant American fans all across the country wherever you’ve been. That gentleman we find nothing short of despicable.

*Heat*

Wade Barrett: You’re either British or you’re not, which t’ me is so ironic as right now there’s three Canadians in that ring. You can call yourself The U-K Pack, you can call yourself tag team champions but you’re a disgrace to the people who matter to us, the people back home. They need people who are proud to be British, who’ll shout from the rooftops that they’re proud of where they come from, an’ that’s not you.

*More Heat*

Smith & Burchill are still glaring up at the defiant Barrett with Regal & McIntyre all business like agreeing with their fellow Empire member with Katie still holding the Union Jack.

Wade Barrett:
We’re the role models for the fans back home an’ soon enough we’ll have those titles too, just like we would’ve done back in the U-K had it not been for those two American punks we buried under this very flag at No Mercy a few weeks ago.

*Heat*

Wade Barrett: You know as well as we do that what I’m saying is true. What you need t’ know right now is that we’re putting you on notice that we’re going to do something about you two. We’ve stood back long enough, now it’s time we true Brits. . .

Harry Smith: . . . Hey, Barrett, I know it’ll be difficult for you, but for this once do you think you can shut that big mouth of yours for just a second?

*Big Pop*

Barrett doesn’t like that and neither do the rest of The Empire.

Harry Smith:
Just so we’re clear, I’m damn proud of my roots. . .

Wade Barrett: Yeah it sure looks like that way.

Harry Smith: Like I said, I’m proud of where I came from. Yeah I’ve been raised in Canada an’ the States but I’ve got British blood running through my veins believe me. If you’ve got a problem with that please feel free t’ come on down here an’ I’ll happily knock your teeth out.

Barrett smirks, clearly amused by that comment for some reason.

Wade Barrett:
You just made my point. That Harry was a typical American response, using violence an’ threats as an answer for ev’rything. We prefer t’ do our business in a more civilised manner, and our only business right now is giving the fans back home someone they can look up to, champions to look up too, an’ that’s not you two, that’s us.

*Major Heat*

Wade Barrett: Now I suggest you two kiss an’ make up if you have any int’rest in keeping those titles of yours or it’ll just make it even easier for us. Either way we’re going to take those titles an’ there’s nothing you or anyone can do t’ stop us.

Harry Smith: Yeah well I guess we’ll see about that won’t we?

Paul Burchill: If you don’t mind Harry I’d quite like to address Wade and his comments.

Smith stops talking as Barrett & Co look on from the stage at the serious figure that is Burchill with TJ & Natalya watching closely behind him & Smith in the ring.

Paul Burchill:
Whatever problems we’re going through right now I know as well as anyone how proud Harry is of his roots both back home and in Canada, and for you to come out here and question our loyalty is almost as laughable as you calling yourselves role models.

*Pop*

Paul Burchill: We’ve seen the way you do your business and there’s nothing civilised about it. You’re certainly not the role models you think are, and as low as your opinion of us is at least we have the tag team titles and have had for almost a year. F’ me that is something to be proud of.

Wade Barrett: The only reason you’re still champions is you’ve had no competition, until now. Like I said before, we had the titles won back home not so long ago as you well know until we were robbed. Next time you won’t be so lucky. Even if you work through these problems you’re having, you’ve got a real problem you need t’ worry about. . . us. We’re not going away an’ I promise you this gentleman, like it or not those titles won’t be yours for much longer. We will take them from you an’ then we’ll be the new W-W-E Tag Team Champions.

“On A Mission” plays again to more boos from the crowd as the confident Empire members look down at the angry UK Pack with even TJ & Natalya unhappy behind them.


*Video Recap*
From Raw (Monday Night)

“It’s a shame that they lost their head. . .”

Looking extremely pleased for himself, the Intercontinental Champion, Sheamus walks out to the stage to a chorus of boos. The heat amuses him and he just carries on down the ramp with his title draped proudly over his shoulder.

Lilian Garcia:
Please welcome the W-W-E Intercontinental Champion and the captain for Team Raw at the Survivor Series. . . SHEA-MUS.

The Celtic Warrior enters the ring with a wide smile on his face before going to collect a microphone from Lilian Garcia. He then walks back in to the centre of the ring and his music stops, bringing out the boos even more, but they still don’t bother him one bit.

Sheamus:
Like she just said, whether you people like it or not you’re lookin’ at de captain of team Raw for de Survivor Series. If f’ some reason you’re actually havin’ trouble wit’ dat den jus’ t’ink it t’rough f’ a second. Who else could possibly do a better job dan me? Not only am I de Intercontinental Champion, I’m de undefeated Intercontinental Champion. Dat means I’ve never lost a match. No one’s ever beaten me. What more could y’want? How many people in de locker room can say dat? Dare’s only one man f’ dis job and you’re lookin’ at ‘im.

*More Boos*

Sheamus: An’ wit’ me in charge dare’s no doubt dat’s gonna happen, even wit’ Carlito we’re still gonna win, not dat we need ‘im or anyone else. I could beat Smackdown all by m’self. Don’t y’think it’s funny dat we don’t even know who’s on team Smackdown or anythin’ about dare team? Y’know, not dat I blame dem, I t’ink dare runnin’ scared of team Raw an’ more importantly me. Like Bischoff said last week, if. . .when we beat Smackdown, it means good t’ings are gonna happen, an’ let’s face it, I’m unstoppable. I’m. . .

“I’m comin. . . no one can stop me, no one can hold me. . .”

To the shock of everyone in the arena, especially Sheamus, Smackdown duo, M.V.P. & Ron Killings walk out to the stage to a big pop. Sheamus can’t believe his eyes as he watches them walk down the ramp in a good mood, joking amongst themselves before entering the ring with M.V.P. holding a microphone. His music cuts and Sheamus looks pissed off to hear the crowd cheering, much to the amusement of the Smackdown boys on tour.


Sheamus:
I don’t know what de hell you fellas are doin’ but if you haven’t noticed I’m kind o’ in de middle of somethin’ here.

M.V.P.: Yeah we noticed, just like those people up there snorin’ away. Keep quiet an’ really listen dog, you’ll hear it.

Sheamus: Is dat some kind o’ joke? You tryin’ t’ be funny are y’fella? Well let me tell y’somethin’; you’re not. . .

M.V.P.: . . . I’m sorry y’didn’t like it but we’re actually here f’ a reason, an’ it ain’t t’ stop all these people fallin’ asleep listenin’ t’ you. See while we were tryin’ t’ stay awake back there we heard y’talkin’ ‘bout how Smackdown’s runnin’ scared of facin’ team Raw an’ of course you at Survivor Series, but in case you ain’t sure we ain’t Raw guys, we’re straight from Friday nights; we’re Smackdown guys. Now I can’t speak f’ the whole of Smackdown, but Sheamus we ain’t the least bit scared of you or Raw.

Sheamus: Well y’should be.

M.V.P.: Maybe but the deal’s this fella, you wanna know somethin’ bout what you’re up against at Survivor Series? Well look no further. An’ while we’re at it, you wanna know who our captain is? Here I am boys an’ girl. Look no further than M-V-P.

Sheamus: You’re havin’ a laugh right fella? You’re tellin’ me you two are de best Smackdown has t’ offer? It was only a few weeks ago I was watchin’ No Mercy an’ you guys embarrassed America in dat flag match, an’ if you’re seriously tellin’ me you’re my opposition, dat embarrassment will be nothin’ compared t’ the embarrassment you’ll have after de Survivor Series.

Killings doesn’t look too happy and asks MVP for the microphone, and Smackdown’s team captain hands it to him.

Ron Killings:
Y’wanna talk bout No Mercy huh? Fine. Yeah we were embarrassed alright, not just f’ us but f’ them. It was one bad night but it’s a night we ain’t ever gonna let happen, but y’know what they say right Sheamus? What don’t kill y’makes y’stronger an’ at Survivor Series we’re sure as hell gonna be stronger. You might be all that champ but if y’think f’ a minute y’can beat us all by y’self you’re gonna be in f’ a whole world o’ hurt. You ain’t gonna beat us all by y’self punk. The only thing you’re gonna do if y’keep runnin’ y’mouth is piss off ev’ryone on y’team. Us, we’ve got each other’s back no matter what. . .

Sheamus: . . . Good f’ you. I’m happy for ya but de fact remains Ron, I’m undefeated an’ still will be after I beat you an whatever else Smackdown losers y’have at de Survivor Series. It’s nothin’ personal fellas, it’s jus’ de way it is.

Ron Killings: Not personal huh? Well neither’s this.

Killings snaps and smashes Sheamus in the face with the microphone to a big pop. M.V.P. looks stunned by it but smiles as he sees Sheamus rolling around on the mat with the ticked off Killings staring down at him. Smackdown’s captain likes what he sees and steps towards Sheamus as the Intercontinental Champion moves up on to his knees. M.V.P. pulls him up and stomps him in the gut then sends him spiralling down with the Playmaker to another decent pop. He & Killings slap hands laughing and “I’m Comin’” plays again when Carlito & Eddie Colon run down the ramp and slide in to the ring with Sheamus writhing about on the mat.

The Puerto Ricans stare right at the Smackdown superstars who hold their hands up and back off, leaving the ring to the surprise of The Celtic Warrior as he sits up. He’s shocked to see Carlito standing there and his tormentor in recent weeks turns round and offers him hand up. Sheamus just stares at him in shock and then grabs Carlito’s hand who pulls him up but quickly lets go and slips behind him, BACKSTABBER! The crowd cheer again as Sheamus hits the deck again. Carlito & Eddie smirk, as do M.V.P. & Killings on the ramp as “Cool” plays with Carlito enjoying seeing Sheamus on the mat.



*Cut Backstage*


Maria is standing by inside the locker room with the camera zooming in on her.

Maria:
Right now I’m joined by the man who’ll lead Team Smackdown against Raw in two weeks at the Survivor Series. Please welcome M-V-P.

The fans cheer inside the arena as the camera zooms out to reveal a positively glowing M.V.P. dressed casually alongside Maria.

M.V.P.:
Hey Maria, how’s it goin’ girl?

Maria: Fine thanks. What I wanted to talk to you about was the Survivor Series. We found out on Raw that you an’ Ron Killings will be part of the Smackdown team that’ll take on Raw’s team led by Sheamus. After what you did to him Monday night, do you think. . .

M.V.P.: . . . Do I think what Maria? That we pissed off the big white Irish freak? You’re damn right, an’ I wouldn’t have it any other way. See this is gonna be a war, it’s what the Survivor Series is all about. It’s a battle f’ survival from start t’ finish. What we did on, well what Ron did Monday night ain’t nothin’. That’s just a message t’ Sheamus an’ the rest of the Raw guys that we’re ready f’ business. We went t’ their home turf an’ made a statement, but we ain’t done yet. Hell we ain’t even started yet.

M.V.P. means business and looks straight down the lens of the camera.

M.V.P.:
Sheamus, if you’re angry after Monday, get ready, ‘cause. . .

There’s some commotion out in the hall, distracting M.V.P.

M.V.P.:
What the?

He walks quickly towards the door and opens it to see Raw’s Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig who aren’t even on Team Raw stomping the hell out of Ron Killings with The Truth defenceless on the floor and M.V.P. flips.

M.V.P.:
HEY, GET THE HELL OFF O’ HIM

Rhodes & Hennig turn and see him charging towards him and they back off with M.V.P. turning his attention to his buddy who’s writhing around on the floor clutching his stomach.

M.V.P.:
You alright dog?

Maria walks out and looks surprised.

Maria:
Oh my god, what happened?

M.V.P.: Y’wanna know what happened Maria? They happened. Ain’t that right?

Cody Rhodes: Hey, we simply returned the favour for the other night, but if you can’t handle that. . .

M.V.P.’s pissed off and jumps up to his feet, catching Cody off guard who immediately steps back again.

M.V.P.:
Y’wanna try handlin’ me tough guy or you want me t’ turn my back first, just the way y’like it?

Cody smirks with Hennig looking pissed.

Cody Rhodes:
Y’know, I think we’ll leave it. We did what we came here t’ do.

M.V.P.: Yeah go on, take both y’asses, turn round an’ get the hell out o’ here while y’still can.

MVP turns round and kneels down alongside Killings again but Cody runs the short distance towards him and kicks him in the side of the head, putting him down on the floor too. He didn’t catch him too hard and M.V.P. sits up with a face like thunder as a smug Cody & Hennig walk away laughing with battle lines well & truly drawn now between the two brands.


*Video Promo*

The mentor & rookie combination of the World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk & Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez are showing heading through the back in their ring gear and looking extremely focused for their upcoming match with Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas, and the shot switches to them also looking fired up to the max and making their way through the backstage area with this tag team contest coming up next.


*Commercial Break*


*Match #6*
Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas
vs. CM Punk & Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez


Lashley & Haas have been on a role as of late for sure, and that continued here as they went toe-to-toe with the World Champion and his impressive rookie. CM Punk was a worried man in the early moments as he watched Lashley put Del Rio-Ramirez through his paces. He gave the Mexican more of a lesson than Punk ever could, putting him through hell. The rookie was on the receiving end of a thunderous lariat and a hellacious T-Bone suplex that he just managed to kick out of before the ref’s count got to three.

However he showed some resolve and despite Haas putting on a clinic initially, Del Rio-Ramirez showed off some of the tremendous ability he has, escaping an attempted german suplex with a series of elbows to the head. As Haas then came back at him, the Mexican reacted quickly, connecting with a jawbreaker full of impact. That allowed the rookie to bring his mentor in to the action after Haas kicked out at two, and Punk entered the ring full of intent. He went right after Haas, pulling him up to his feet and firing him in to the corner before following up by running in at him with a high knee to the face.

The World Champion grabbed Haas by the head and ran out to drill him in to the canvas with a bulldog. Haas was in trouble and Punk sure meant business, but as the match went on Haas & Lashley showed they were no pushovers. Punk & Lashley were going at it and Lashley took control, ducking a roundhouse kick and sent him spiralling down thanks to a flipping release german suplex. Punk was in all kinds of trouble, and Lashley showed off his strength by pulling Punk up to his feet and lifting him up in to the air with one arm for a delayed vertical suplex. He kept him for up a good eight seconds before sending him crashing down in to the canvas.

Del Rio-Ramirez was the one showing concern for his partner at this stage, and Lashley could smell victory. He watched on intently as Punk struggled back up to his feet, and with the crowd getting right behind him, Lashley back tracked in to the corner, getting ready for a spear. The fans were on their feet, and as Punk turned round, Lashley came flying across the ring. Punk though reacted in a flash to leapfrog him, and as both men turned round Punk ducked his head and showed some incredible strength of his own to lift Lashley off his feet and on to his shoulders for the GTS.

Lashley though didn’t make it easy for him and escaped with a couple of shots to the back of the neck. He then spun Punk round and whipped him in to the ropes, but Punk held on tight and taunted Lashley. He didn’t appreciate that and ran right at Punk who caught him with a spin kick before nailing him with a thunderous roundhouse kick. The fans’ energy was killed by the World Champion who arrogantly went for a cover, only to see Lashley get the shoulder up at two, leaving Punk furious. He wasn’t having any of it and blamed the ref before going back to kill the match.

He urged the dazed Lashley to get up with Haas encouraging his partner and getting the crowd to do the same. Lashley unwittingly made it back up and turned round in to Punk’s path and the World Champion once again went for the GTS, and again Lashley slipped down to safety just as it looked like Punk was going to send him to sleep. Punk turned round in a flash but in to a stop to the gut. The former military man fired him in to the ropes and got the crowd rocking again after a huge spine-buster on The Straight-Edge Superstar. Del Rio-Ramirez couldn’t believe it as he saw the confident yet focused Lashley back on his feet and make the tag to Haas.

With the crowd willing him on, Haas pulled down the straps as the struggling World Champion tried to claw his way back up. Haas watched him every step of the way, and as Punk made it up, Haas went for the Olympic Slam, but Punk slipped own to safety this time and wasted no time in sending Haas down to the mat after a double underhook back breaker. It enabled him to tag in his rookie, eventually after crawling across the mat. Del Rio-Ramirez sure shared his mentor’s intensity and dragged Haas up to fire him in to the corner. Haas’s back hit the pads at some speed, not that the Mexican cared as he ran in at him and nailed him with a hard clothesline.

He back pedalled as Haas staggered out in to his path and a spinning neck-breaker. Del Rio-Ramirez wasn’t happy to see Haas get his foot on the rope at two and dragged him once more. Again he fired him in to the corner, but this time Haas stepped out to the side and saw Del Rio-Ramirez run in to the pads chest first. Haas went for a roll up there and then but the rookie kicked out. They raced back up to their feet and Haas ducked a wild right before connecting with the Olympic Slam to a huge pop. He scurried across to make the cover, and just as the ref was about to count to three, Punk dived on top of him to break up the count to a ton of heat.

Lashley though was furious and entered the ring with his eyes locked on the World Champion, and as Punk stood up with a smile on his face, he unwittingly turned round in to one hell of a spear from Lashley. The crowd were going nuts as Punk’s body rolled out of the ring down to the floor with Del Rio-Ramirez left all alone. Haas sat back up and saw the rookie still down & out, and he looked in to the cheering crowd before locking in the Haas of Pain, getting the crowd going even more, and despite a brave fight from Del Rio-Ramirez he couldn’t hold on and tapped out to give Lashley & Haas, as well as Team Cena a huge win going in to the Survivor Series.

Punk sat up on the outside just as Lashley gave his partner a big congratulatory hug, showing some real emotion between them for the first time as their role continued. The World Champion was furious, shaking his head as he saw their arms raised in victory with “Hell Will Be Callin’ Your Name” playing to a big pop. The crowd continued in their strong ovation for Lashley & Haas as Punk too watched on angrily on the arena floor with the members of Team Cena climbing the ropes and posing for the fans.

Winners: Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas by submission.


*Cut Backstage*


In his ring gear, John Cena is walking through the halls and turns a corner, bumping right in to the freaky ODB who we’ve seen in recent weeks, once again drinking from a flask but he walks right in to her.

John Cena:
Whoa, I’m really sorry. I didn’t see y’there, mam.

ODB takes a look at her top and sees there’s nothing spilt, then looks back at Cena with a strange look of satisfaction on her face.

ODB:
Don’t worry ‘bout that. There ain’t no damage done baby. Y’can bump in t’ me anytime y’want.

Cena looks genuinely shocked & worried.

John Cena:
Wow, I honestly don’t know what t’say t’ that.

She moves her head right towards his, worrying him even more but she’s loving it.

ODB:
Y’don’t need t’ say anythin’ baby boy.

She lays a smacker on him, catching him completely by surprise but she pulls back after a couple of seconds and Cena looks stunned.

John Cena:
Err. . .

ODB: That was good weren't it baby? How ‘bout we go finish this an’ get busy right about now?

John Cena: Well first, thanks f’ the offer. . . It’s not that I’m not grateful, it’s just I’ve got a match an. . .

ODB: . . . Don’t worry ‘bout that, I ain’t in no rush. I can wait around all night f’ you stud.

John Cena: Wow that’s real nice but I probably should’ve said before, not that I got chance, but I can’t, I’ve got a girlfriend back home, fiancée actually an’ I don’t think she’d like it that much, not that I’m not flattered.

She takes it on the chin, not looking too bothered and takes another swig from her flask.

ODB:
Your loss, but you ain’t gonna get anythin’ like this at home.

She turns round and walks off up the hall with a still bemused Cena watching on.

John Cena:
I sure hope not.

He wipes his lips, shakes his head and walks back towards the production area with his match against Shelton Benjamin, the main event coming up next!


*Commercial Break*


*Video Promo*



>2 Weeks!<


*Cut to the Arena*


“AIN’T NO STOPPIN’ ME, NOOO!”

Boos ring out as a very focused Shelton Benjamin walks out to the stage and takes a long look in to the stands before heading down to the ring, pacing down the ramp, ignoring the fans’ reaction to him. He enters the ring up the steps and goes right in to the far corner, climbs up to the second rope and simply gazes in to the crowd, definitely up for this one.

“My Time is Now”

It’s deafening inside the arena as John Cena hits the stage, running out to both sides with both cheers & boos coming from the crowd, although it’s mostly positive for him. He’s got his game face on as he salutes the fans and heads down the ramp with the focused Benjamin still looking on in the ring, awaiting his opponent. Cena slides inside and walks straight over to the ropes, takes his cap off and tosses it in to the stands, then does the same with his T-shirt. He turns round and glances over at his opponent with his music coming to a halt.

“Break Down The Walls”

A ton of heat with some cheers thrown in break out in the stands as a suited & booted Chris Jericho strolls out to the stage with a microphone in hand, catching everyone especially Cena off guard. He turns and looks up at the very serious looking Canadian.

Chris Jericho:
Cut the music. . . I said cut the music.

His music cuts now, not that he looks any happier for it as he glares down at the confused Cena.

Chris Jericho:
What’s wrong Cena? Weren’t you expecting t’ see me again? Well I’m sorry t’ disappoint you but as you should know, we have some unfinished business t’ say the very least.

*Ton of Boos*

Chris Jericho: See John the reason no one’s seen or heard from me since No Mercy is for one very simple reason; it’s because of you. It’s because on that night almost three weeks ago you interfered in my match and cost me the World Heavyweight Championship.

*Mixed*

Chris Jericho: I was just seconds away John from claiming what should be rightfully mine, only like so many people have pointed out since, you just had t’ be the centre of attention. You can stand there in that ring and deny it week after week, it doesn’t change the fact that it’s true. That’s why I couldn’t bare the thought of coming back. The thought of being on the same show as you makes me physically sick.

*Heat*

Chris Jericho: You’re nothing but a parasite John Cena but I’ve finally come to the conclusion that sitting at home isn’t going to change anything. It’s not going to achieve what needs to be accomplished. That being removing you from this show.

*More Heat*

Chris Jericho: I may not like C-M Punk, however when it comes t’ you I agree with him one hundred percent. That’s why I’m out here t’night publicly offering him my services for the Survivor Series to take on your team and ensure you don’t earn the completely unwarranted title shot that’s been thrown in your path.

*Boos*

Cena & Jericho stare at each other with Jericho showing total contempt for him.

Chris Jericho:
The fact you’ve been given that opportunity makes me even more sick to my stomach, but John I vow in front of all these worthless followers of yours that you won’t receive that shot at the World Heavyweight Championship. I’ll do ev’rything in my power to ensure that doesn’t happen, and when that shot becomes open to those who actually deserve it, I will grab it and become the new World Champion as I should be right now if it wasn’t f’ you.

*More Boos*

Jericho & Cena continue staring at each other and Jericho drops the microphone on the stage, then walks down the ramp, surprising Cena who watches Jericho walk round to the announce table and take up an empty seat alongside Michael Cole & Matt Striker and putting on a headset.


*The Main Event*
John Cena vs. Shelton Benjamin


With Jericho watching closely from the announce table, Cena was on edge throughout and the incredibly focused Benjamin sure took full advantage. The Gold Standard was out with a point to prove and went toe-to-toe with Cena all the way. Even when Cena was getting in to full swing as the match progressed to its later stages, he kept coming back at him. Just as it looked like Cena was in full swing, connecting with a flying shoulder tackle and sending Shelton in to the mat after a spin-out power-bomb, he watched on as the battling Benjamin picked himself back up.

Cena then turned back in to the ropes and came back looking for a bulldog, but Shelton caught him off guard, ducking under the outstretched arm and taking Cena down with a samoan drop. The crowd were shocked at that and Jericho loved it, talking up Shelton’s ability and how when he’s at his best he’s as good as any of the top stars including himself in the WWE. The Gold Standard quickly shrugged off the disappointment at Cena kicking out at two and went about earning himself an unlikely victory. He helped Cena up from his knees and fired him hard in to the corner, then charged in for a stinger splash, connecting and stunning Cena.

Benjamin stepped back and then watched as Cena staggered out in to his path, right in to place for the exploder suplex. Cena blocked it though and escaped after a couple of elbow shots to the side of the head. Cena was the one coming back this time and whipped Shelton in to the ropes, but as he hit the ropes he held on to them. Cena didn’t hang around and ran right at him, but Shelton reacted by extending his elbow up in to Cena’s face. As a dazed Cena then staggered back towards the centre of the ring, Benjamin stepped through the ropes and steadied himself on the apron.

As soon as Cena turned round, Benjamin had jumped up on to the top rope, spring-boarding to take Cena down with a clothesline. He was in the groove now and as he watched Cena claw his way back up, the focused Benjamin ran the ropes, hit another springboard and connected with an enzuigiri to put Cena right back on the canvas. Jericho was loving it, watching with a smug smile on his face but that all changed as he saw Cena get his shoulder up at two. The Gold Standard took it on the chin and stood back up, heading in to the corner as Cena struggled to get on to his knees, not knowing where he was at all.

The crowd were very anxious as they watched Cena struggle to his feet with Benjamin ready to pounce, and Shelton didn’t waste a second and charged across the ring going for the Paydirt. Cena though ducked it and as Shelton put on the breaks, Cena lifted him up on to his shoulders for the F-U. The crowd were going crazy but as Cena looked about to hit it, Shelton showed off his athleticism and landed on his feet. Cena was stunned and Shelton went for the dragon whip, kicking Cena tamely in the gut initially, but Cena countered, sweeping his standing leg to take him down and lock in the STFU.

The fans were going nuts again as the intense as hell Cena made Benjamin work for his life, and with Jericho screaming for Benjamin to fight it, The Gold Standard did just that, trying to drag himself to the safety of the ropes. Cena didn’t make it easy it all and Shelton looked like he was about to tap but fought on as Jericho took off his headset and went over to the apron, encouraging him from there. Benjamin gave it everything he could and battled & clawed his way to the ropes, grabbing it to the frustration of the Biloxi fans. There were cheers mixed in too as Jericho looked on with a smile on his face, staring at Cena who was visibly becoming angrier by the second.

He stood up and looked down at Jericho as if to ask why he was there, met by no response from the smug Canadian. Seeing Shelton trying to make it back up, Cena went back to work and tried to lift him up for the F-U one more time, but Benjamin held on to the ropes, giving Cena no choice but to put him down. Shelton then blocked a right hand but had an irish whip reversed. He came back though and slid through Cena’s legs before taking him down with an inverted facelock backbreaker.

Jericho was nodding in approval as Shelton went for a cover, but Cena kicked out at two. Again Shelton didn’t let frustration get the better of him and was right back on Cena. He went to help him up but Cena rose to life, surprising the hell out of him to lift him up again for the F-U. The fans were cheering again but not for long as Jericho panicked, jumping up on to the apron. Cena saw him and snapped, putting Shelton down before going right after Jericho, who jumped down in a flash and gave Cena a piece of his mind on the floor with Cena giving him a warning.

Before he could finish though, Benjamin ran up behind him and drove his knee in to Cena’s back, then rolled him up and put his feet on the ropes for extra leverage with Jericho grabbing them too as the oblivious ref then counted to three to give Shelton the shock victory. “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Me” hit to a ton of heat as Benjamin slipped out of the ring to get his arm raised by an overjoyed Jericho as Cena sat up looking on furiously. Benjamin wasn’t that emotional at all, looking more satisfied than pleased with his music blasting out inside the arena. Cena gestured towards Jericho who just laughed it off and again rose Benjamin’s hand as the show came to a close with him laughing at the extremely pissed off Cena.

Winner: Shelton Benjamin by pinfall.

>Headlines<


>Cena & Punk All Ready for War!<


Last night’s Smackdown started with John Cena unveiling his team that will take on Team Punk at the Survivor Series, however we’ve now learned that CM Punk has added Chris Jericho & Shelton Benjamin to his team that already consists of his rookie, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez & ‘The Rated-R Superstar’ Edge as well as the World Champion himself.

Punk told WWE.com late last night that he spoke with Benjamin & Jericho after The Gold Standard’s shocking & controversial win over Cena with Jericho playing a big role having spoken of his desire to get even with Cena. The World Champion said that the two men went out and made a statement unlike the many superstars that begged him to be a part of his team for Survivor Series.

It was a mixed night for Team Punk though as Punk himself was on the end of a defeat for the second week in a row, however this time it was in tag team action against Bobby Lashley & Charlie who kept their winning streak going after Haas made Del Rio-Ramirez tap out to the Haas of Pain. The Lashley/Haas combination could well be a very useful asset for Team Cena in two weeks, especially considering Cena’s defeat last night.

Also on the show, Matt Sydal collided with Edge but the contest ended in a disqualification as Christian returned to the arena to attempt to get even with his brother after being attacked by him the week before. With just two weeks to go business really is picking up as far as this huge encounter is concerned.



>Team H.B.K. Is Complete!<


The Miz announced on Raw earlier this week that Dolph Ziggler was the final part of his ‘awesome’ team to take on Shawn Michaels’ team at the Survivor Series, and last week we discovered just who would fill the final spots in Team H.B.K.

After defeating Jack Swagger, a member of Team Miz, Elijah Burke joined The Heartbreak Kid & Kofi Kingston at the top of the stage, and Michaels let the world know that Burke would be joining him & Kofi. We then had the pleasure of welcoming a newcomer to the WWE as well as Team H.B.K. in the shape of Bryan Danielson, who according to Michaels is one of the best in the business today and was trained by his team captain.

It looks like The Miz’s ‘awesome’ team is going to have to live up to its tag if they are going to be able to survive when they collide with Team H.B.K. in 15 short days!



>Tazz Adds Former Champions to Team Smackdown for Battle of the Brands!<


In an interesting development to the Battle of the Brands clash at Survivor Series, we’ve been advised that Smackdown’s General Manager, Tazz has added the former WWE & World Tag Team Champions, Paul London & Brian Kendrick to his show’s team.

They will join Ron Killings and team captain, M.V.P. to battle it out with Team Raw, consisting so far of the Intercontinental Champion, Sheamus, Carlito & John Morrison. Last night we saw London & Kendrick go one-on-one after a brawl that ended up in the back a week ago when London eliminated Kendrick from the battle royal to determine the number one contender for the Cruiserweight Championship. The former friends & partners received a talking to from Tazz and last night they met head-to-head with Kendrick coming out on top in what was a very entertaining & competitive match.

Afterwards London offered his hand to the victor, taking Kendrick completely by surprise, so much so that he shook it. It clearly made an impression on the Smackdown G.M. who has now shown his confidence in them by adding them to Team Smackdown. Will it be a good decision given their recent history or will it pay off?

It’s just two weeks until the huge Survivor Series pay-per-view, and right now here is what you can expect to see in addition to the above matches:

Decisions Due on Rookies!

We understand that the rookies currently on both Raw & Smackdown will learn in the next week or so if they are to be given a full time place on the main roster.

The rookies have been on TV for around two months now and we are led to believe that the decisions will be announced either on screen or on WWE.com either before or after Survivor Series. We’re also hearing that some of the decisions may be written in to current ongoing storylines as early as this week’s Smackdown.

From what we hear over half of the rookies have impressed enough to be given full time places on the main roster, however there is also the possibility that they may end up switching shows with storyline ‘poaching’ being considered for at least one of them. We can all but confirm that J-Red will be added to the Smackdown roster as he has been praised from pretty much the get go. Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez, Justin Gabriel, Homicide & Joe Hennig are also believed to be receiving call-ups as they too have impressed the powers that be.

We’ll keep you updated of any further developments as & when we receive them.

Monday Night Raw Preview
Monday 27th October 2008
Live from the Allstate Arena
Rosemont, Illinois





The Survivor Series is now less than two weeks away and as we get even closer, it seems that things are getting even more heated on both Raw & Smackdown.

We saw Triple H attack the WWE Champion, Batista and the man both he & Randy Orton will meet for The Animal’s title in 13 days, however The Game’s assault was in front of his rival’s daughter. It looked as if Triple H was susprised when he realised it was her, maybe thinking it was his wife, Stephanie as the rumours of a relationship between her & Batista continue to do the rounds of the Raw locker room. Thankfully for the WWE Champion, Orton and his rookie, Darren Young weren’t too far away and made sure The Game didn’t do any more damage. It does indeed look as if The Legend Killer has Batista’s back, but is Triple H right to believe there is something going on behind his between Batista & Stephanie? Either way it’s safe to assume neither Batista or Triple H are going to be too happy when they arrive in Rosemont for Raw this week, and how will The Game react to Orton’s actions?

If Batista & Triple H are angry and rightly so after the events of last week, then god only knows how angry The Big Show is going to be this week after what appears to be a despicable setup by Vince McMahon and his son, John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield. Having been spat on by Mr. McMahon a week earlier, The World’s Largest Athlete was waiting for them in the parking lot, but they didn’t come. That was until Show had already left after being told his wife had been taken to the hospital. Just before the show came to a close they arrived, doing a number on Justin Gabriel, Big Show’s rookie in the parking lot until Eric Bischoff arrived on the scene with event security to put a stop to the mugging. After poking fun at Show not being there, it would seem that they were responsible for the information given to The Big Show. You have to wonder how he’s going to react this week and just how Gabriel is. Tune in to find out just how he does react live this Monday night.

After shouting his mouth off the last few weeks about how he’s going to defeat The Undertaker at Survivor Series, Ted DiBiase got a wake up call last week, reminding him of the challenge that faces him. Just moments after defeating Finlay in an open challenge to anyone in the locker room, the lights went out as DiBiase and his rookie, Ezekiel Jackson looked to send a message to The Dead-Man via Finlay. When they came back on the second time, DiBiase wasn’t expecting what was waiting for him. He & Jackson felt the wrath of the phenom, and Maryse would have also if it wasn’t for her boyfriend’s superb timing to save her bacon. He found himself on the wrong end of a big boot that sent him rolling to the floor while Jackson was chokeslammed in to the canvas, giving the cocky young superstar a lot to think about. We’ve since learned that DiBiase’s rookie will in fact go one-on-one with The Dead-Man this coming week live on Raw. What better way for Taker to give Ted Jr another reminder of what he’ll be up against in 13 days?!

Last week live on Raw, The Miz unveiled his team to take on Team H.B.K. at Survivor Series moments before falling in to a trap set by Kofi Kingston & ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels that saw Kofi challenge Miz and his rookie, Heath Slater to a match before announcing Michaels as his partner. Kofi also announced his decision to be a part of Team H.B.K. at Survivor Series, and having gotten the better of Miz & Slater on Raw, Michaels unveiled the remaining two members of his team on Smackdown Friday night. They are Elijah Burke who overcame Team Miz member, Jack Swagger and a newcomer to the WWE who apparently has been trained by The Heartbreak Kid and was described by the man himself as one of the best in the world today. He goes by the name of Bryan Danielson and we’ve been told by Eric Bischoff that Kofi will be back in action this week when he goes up against Slater in one-on-one action. The Miz is bound to be by his rookie’s side, but will he be able to get some momentum back for his mentor’s team as we get closer to Survivor Series?

Also in action this week will be Gregory Helms when he takes on Christopher Daniels. We heard last week just how frustrated Daniels and his tag team partner, Kaval feel about having to take on Helms & Matt Hardy as well as Rey Mysterio & Mystico in a triple threat match at Survivor Series for the World Tag Team titles given how their two opposing teams drew in their semi final tournament match. It looked like Daniels & Helms were about to go at it, but they will this Monday night in active competition. Will we get an indication of who may leave Survivor Series as the new World Tag Team Champions?

Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig last week went to Raw’s team captain for the Battle of the Brands at Survivor Series, Sheamus asking him for a spot on Team Raw. The Intercontinental Champion let them know he’d be inundated with other superstars asking for the same spot and told them to give him a reason to pick them, and they may well have done that after their actions on Smackdown last Friday night. Just as M.V.P. was talking about how he & Ron Killings sent Sheamus & Raw a statement of intent following their appearance on Raw last week, Rhodes & Hennig attacked Killings, quickly getting the attention of Team Smackdown’s captain who was less than pleased as you would expect. He quickly got the young duo to back away before Cody then struck him with a sucker punch. Have they made an impression on Sheamus, or even on M.V.P.? Given how M.V.P. & Killings had no problem coming to Raw last week, they surely have to be considering coming back for some retribution this week in Rosemont.

For all this & more make sure you tune in to this week’s Raw with less than two weeks to go before Survivor Series. You won’t want to miss all the action love from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois!



>Confirmed for Raw This Week<

The Undertaker vs. Ezekiel Jackson

Gregory Helms vs. Christopher Daniels

Kofi Kingston
vs. Heath Slater

Monday Night Raw
Monday 27th October 2008
Live from the Allstate Arena
Rosemont, Illinois





*Video Recap*
From Last Week

Batista is in the production area on his cell phone and the WWE Champion in his street clothes tonight with his title is resting against one of the huge production boxes.


Batista:
Alright sweetheart, I’ll see you soon. Love you, bye.

Batista snaps his cell shut just as Randy Orton & Darren Young (also in their casual gear) walk towards him, quickly changing The Animal’s mood.

Batista:
Great, what d’ you want Randy?

Randy Orton: Let me guess huh Dave, Stephanie right?

Batista: Not that it’s any of your business but actually it was my daughter, and like I said last week there’s nothing going on with me an’ Steph. Why can’t you or Hun’er get that in t’ y’heads?

Randy Orton: Look Dave you’re right. Whatever’s going on or not going on between you an’ Stephanie, that’s not my business, but let me ask you something. . . How can you be so sure you can trust Stephanie? If nothing has happened that may well be for a reason. All I’m saying is Dave you don’t have t’ trust me but can you honestly say you can trust her? Think of what Hun’er has t’ gain by all this. He wants the W-W-E title as much as we do, maybe even more an’ we know what he’s done before t’ get it an’ keep it. Just think about that. He’d do whatever it takes t’ get either or both of us out of the picture an’ you know it, an’ we both know Steph’s not as innocent as she makes out. I mean how do you know their marriage is in trouble an’ this isn’t one big charade t’ put you in the middle an’ lower your guard huh Dave? Has it never crossed your mind that it may be a possibility? Just think about it Dave. That’s all I’m gonna say.

It looks like what Orton’s said is registering with Batista and The Viper sees that, then turns away with his rookie, leaving The Animal to ponder it some more. His cell phone rings again and he looks at the screen. He looks at it, clearly thinking about whether to answer it, and he does.

Batista:
Hey Steph, what’s up?

The camera zooms in on the WWE Champion and clearly his mind is all over the place.

***

‘The Game’ Triple H
is walking through the back, breathing slightly heavily after his match when he stops and appears to see something that he doesn’t like. His face goes red and he breathes even heavier as the camera cuts to a shot of Batista with his back to the shot hugging someone in the distance. Triple H loses it and storms over. Batista doesn’t hear him coming and The Game pulls him away, spins him round and nails him with a right hand, sending him to the floor and glares down at him in anger.

?:
DAD!

The Game turns his head expecting to see Stephanie but it’s not, it’s Batista’s daughter and she panics, kneeling down to check on her dad. The Animal sits up with a face like thunder and then we hear someone run over and club Triple H down to his knees. It’s Randy Orton & Darren Young and they stomp all over The Game. Orton then drags him up and tosses him in to one of the production boxes with Batista looking on in shock, as does his daughter. The King of Kings is barely moving on the floor and Orton turns to Batista, then nods his head at him. The Legend Killer slaps Young on the arm then walks out of the shot as a confused & angry Batista then looks across at a groggy looking Triple H coming round as the show comes to a close.


*Cut to the Arena*


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


Jim Ross:
Good evening ev’ryone an’ welcome to Monday Night Raw, live t’night from the Allstate Arena in Rosemont Illinois, an’ King we’re now just thir-teen nights away from the Survivor Series.

Jerry Lawler: Oh we sure are J-R. It’s so close you can feel it. I can’t wait.

Jim Ross: Well t’night you might get a sneak preview of how things are going t’ pan out thirteen nights from now as we’ve got no less than three matches here this evening with Survivor Series implications. . . It might be Ted DiBiase going one-on-one with The Undertaker in just under two weeks but t’night it’ll be his rookie Ezekiel Jackson who’ll be the one going at it with the dead-man. We’re also going t’ see Christopher Daniels take on Gregory Helms an’ you can be sure their tag team partners won’t be far away as they prepare t’ battle it out for the world tag team titles at Survivor Series.

Jerry Lawler: Oh yeah, an’ we found out exactly how Daniels felt about that last week an’ how he got to Helms an’ Matt Hardy. That’s not gonna be pretty J-R, trust me.

Jim Ross: I’m sure it won’t. The same can be said f’ when Kofi Kingston takes on The Miz’s rookie Heath Slater, an’ after the last couple o’ weeks it looks like Kofi’s getting back to his best, an’ that’s not good news f’ Team Miz. I wouldn’t want t’ be Mister McMahon t’night, or J-B-L f’ that matter after the sickening stunt they pulled last week. One man you don’t want make angry is The Big Show an’ god knows what kind of mood he’ll be in when he arrives later on.

“AWE-SOME!”

A ton of heat breaks out in the arena as The Miz, dressed casually tonight walks out to the stage in not one of his better moods along with his rookie, Heath Slater who is ready for action.

Lilian Garcia:
This contest is scheduled for one fall. Intr’ducing first being accompanied to the ring by The Miz, from Pineville West Virginia, weighing in at two hundred an’ sixteen pounds, Heath SLA-TER.

Slater has his game face on, looking very serious as he and his mentor walk down the ramp giving the booing fans dirty looks all the way before getting in the ring and doing the same as they step inside there too. Mr. Hollywood shakes his head disapprovingly at the fans as he walks over to Lilian Garcia and asks for her microphone, getting it while giving her a frosty look too. He rejoins his rookie in the centre of the ring as his music cuts, bringing out the boos that clearly get to him.

The Miz:
If you losers would shut your damn mouths I’ll be able t’ say what I came out here t’ say.

*Major Heat*

The Miz: Y’know what? I couldn’t care less about any of you pathetic losers or what you think. All I care about right now is Survivor Series an’ beating Shawn Michaels an’ his precious little team he so happily put t’gether Friday night. . . Shawn I know you’re watchin’ wherever you are t’night but you can wipe away that smile you had on your face. In fact I’ll personally take care of that in two weeks when my team including Heath here embarrasses yours.

*Heat*

The Miz: That’s right Shawn, I said we’re going to embarrass you. The fact you were practically gloating about your team the other night’s just going t’ make it even more satisfying than it already will be. I just hope that I have the pleasure of being the one to eliminate you. You might now it Shawn but the rest of us all know The Heartbreak Kid died a long time ago an’ right here you’re looking at the future of the W-W-E. Shawn Michaels might still be clinging on but not f’ long. It’s time someone pushed you over the edge and we all said goodbye t’ you once an’ f’ all, an’ finally that person’s come along, and his name is THE MI. . .

“S.O.S., I hear ‘em callin’. . .”

Kofi Kingston
runs out to the stage to a big pop with a microphone in hand, hitting both sides of the stage and getting he crowd going even more. The Miz & Slater look in angrily, not at all happy to see Kofi settling in centre stage and staring down at them as the music is cut by the guys in the truck.

Kofi Kingston:
Miz, did you take a bang t’ the head or somethin’ the last couple o’ days? You’re out here tellin’ these fans you seriously think Shawn Michaels is on his last legs an’ you’re gonna finish off one of the greatest this business has ever seen at Survivor Series, seriously? Man you’re a bigger idiot than I gave you credit for.

*Big Pop*

The Miz: Like I care what you think Kofi. You’re just as worthless as ev’ryone sat out there. . .

Kofi Kingston: . . . Give it up Miz. You’re crazy if y’believe that. F’ whatever reason you actually believe you’re this huge megastar, you’re not even in Shawn Michaels’ league, an’ guess what? You never will be.

*Pop*

Kofi Kingston: You can f’get all about that an’ winnin’ at Survivor Series, just like that rookie of yours can f’get about winnin’ t’night.

Kofi drops his microphone on the stage and heads off down the ramp staring at the pissed off Mr. Hollywood & Slater as “S.O.S.” plays again with the fans cheering for Kofi, and the Jamaican Sensation slaps hands with the ones in the front now as he makes his way to the ring.


*The Opening Match*
Kofi Kingston
vs. Heath Slater w/The Miz


As you would expect, Kofi started the match on fire, but that came to a grinding halt after a distraction from The Miz brought Slater in to the contest. Slater looked impressive, staying on top of Kofi until The Jamaican Sensation caught him with a raised boot after being whipped in to the corner. Slater ran in to the raised boot and in a flash Kofi pulled himself up to the second rope. The dazed rookie then turned round with his mentor panicking on the outside, rightly so as Kingston set off a big pop as he jumped off the ropes for a diving crossbody, landing on top of Slater and hooking the leg for a cover.

Slater kicked out though and showed some resilience, but as the match entered its closing stages, Kofi was full of momentum, and after coming close with the Boom Drop, he was getting ready to end it with the Trouble in Paradise. The Miz though had other ideas and jumped up on the apron to distract the Jamaican, and he did just that. With Slater picking himself up, Kofi ran across at The Miz who jumped down before he was pushed, pissing off Kofi no end.

As Kingston then turned round, Slater charged at him but Kofi ducked his outstretched arm and nailed him with the Trouble in Paradise. The fans were cheering all around the arena as he hooked both legs for the cover to pick up the win to a big pop as Miz drove his fists furiously in to the canvas on the outside. He could only look on in anger as Kofi celebrated his win, posing for the fans on the second rope, enjoying seeing Mr. Hollywood all wound up. Slater rolled out of the ring as Kofi then jumped down and stared intently at The Miz with the awesome one staring right back with a face like thunder.

Winner: Kofi Kingston by pinfall.


*Cut Backstage*


The Intercontinental Champion, Sheamus (in his ring gear), Raw’s team captain for the Battle of the Brands at the Survivor Series is engaged in what looks to be a serious looking conversation with Raw’s Head of Authority, Eric Bischoff when Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig walk in to the shot. They too are in their trunks and have T-shirts on too, both looking very pleased with themselves as they catch the attention of Sheamus & Bischoff.

Cody Rhodes:
Well good evening gentleman. Did you by any chance catch what we did on Smackdown last Friday night?

Eric Bischoff: As a matter of a fact I did.

Cody, still grinning like a smug son of a bitch turns to the very serious Irishman.

Cody Rhodes:
So was that enough for you to make the decision we said you should last week and put us on Team Raw for Survivor Series.

Sheamus: Well fellas. . .

Eric Bischoff: . . . Wait, what’s this? You said they could just have a place on the team?

Sheamus: T’ be fair Mister Bischoff I just told dem t’ go show me why I should choose dem t’ be a part of. . .

Eric Bischoff: . . . Okay hold it right there. I’m the one who makes the decisions about who represents my brand, just like I decided who’d be team captain. I can still change that decision too if I feel like it.

Sheamus: Wait just a minute. You know I’m da man f’ da job.

Eric Bischoff: That may be so but the bottom line is this is still my team. It’s my show you’re all representing. I’m the one who’ll decide who I feel are the right people t’ make sure we beat Smackdown. It just so happens that what you guys did the other night is just what I want t’ see from my team. I want people I know want this and aren’t afraid t’ go an’ do what you did. That took some guts, an’ f’ that guys if you still want t’ be part of Team Raw then you’re in.

Cody & Hennig turn and look at each other, smiling & nodding before looking back at Bischoff with Sheamus unsure of what to make of goings on and being put in his place.

Cody Rhodes:
We’d very much like to be part of Team Raw.

Eric Bischoff: Great because we’ve got less than two weeks t’ get ourselves ready. The work starts t’night. What I need t’ do is make sure all of you are ready an’ that means you’re all going t’ be in action t’night. Cody, Joe you’re gonna be taking on two more members of Team Raw later on in John Morrison an’ Carlito.

Cody Rhodes: That’s fine with us. We’ll show you what we can do not just t’night but at Survivor Series.

Bischoff turns to his captain, still not best pleased.

Eric Bischoff:
Now I know you’ve wan’ed t’ get your hands on Carlito for a while now but t’night I’m gonna give you the next best thing, his brother Eddie, an’ that champ’, that’s gonna be next. You ready t’ lead by example an’ show the rest of the team what it takes t’ get the job done?

Sheamus: Y’can rely on me boss, make no mistake about it. Not only am I gonna destroy dat little punk t’night, at Survivor Series I’m gonna make sure we destroy Team Smackdown, especially after what dey did here on Raw last week.

Eric Bischoff: Now that’s what I like t’ hear guys. Good luck to you all t’night an’ don’t let me down.

Cody Rhodes: Oh we won’t boss, we guarantee it.

Bischoff nods happily at them as Sheamus turns round and walks up the hall. He too then walks off leaving the smug duo of Cody & Hennig standing there smirking, happy to be a part of Team Raw for the Battle of the Brands at the Survivor Series.


*Commercial Break*


*Video Recap*
From Last Week

“It’s a shame that they lost their head. . .”

Looking extremely pleased for himself, the Intercontinental Champion, Sheamus walks out to the stage to a chorus of boos. The heat amuses him and he just carries on down the ramp with his title draped proudly over his shoulder.

Lilian Garcia:
Please welcome the W-W-E Intercontinental Champion and the captain for Team Raw at the Survivor Series. . . SHEA-MUS.

The Celtic Warrior enters the ring with a wide smile on his face before going to collect a microphone from Lilian Garcia. He then walks back in to the centre of the ring and his music stops, bringing out the boos even more, but they still don’t bother him one bit.

Sheamus:
Like she just said, whether you people like it or not you’re lookin’ at de captain of team Raw for de Survivor Series. If f’ some reason you’re actually havin’ trouble wit’ dat den jus’ t’ink it t’rough f’ a second. Who else could possibly do a better job dan me? Not only am I de Intercontinental Champion, I’m de undefeated Intercontinental Champion. Dat means I’ve never lost a match. No one’s ever beaten me. What more could y’want? How many people in de locker room can say dat? Dare’s only one man f’ dis job and you’re lookin’ at ‘im.

*More Boos*

Sheamus: An’ wit’ me in charge dare’s no doubt dat’s gonna happen, even wit’ Carlito we’re still gonna win, not dat we need ‘im or anyone else. I could beat Smackdown all by m’self. Don’t y’think it’s funny dat we don’t even know who’s on team Smackdown or anythin’ about dare team? Y’know, not dat I blame dem, I t’ink dare runnin’ scared of team Raw an’ more importantly me. Like Bischoff said last week, if. . .when we beat Smackdown, it means good t’ings are gonna happen, an’ let’s face it, I’m unstoppable. I’m. . .

“I’m comin’. . . no one can stop me, no one can hold me. . .”

To the shock of everyone in the arena, especially Sheamus, Smackdown duo, M.V.P. & Ron Killings walk out to the stage to a big pop. Sheamus can’t believe his eyes as he watches them walk down the ramp in a good mood, joking amongst themselves before entering the ring with M.V.P. holding a microphone. His music cuts and Sheamus looks pissed off to hear the crowd cheering, much to the amusement of the Smackdown boys on tour.


Sheamus:
I don’t know what de hell you fellas are doin’ but if you haven’t noticed I’m kind o’ in de middle of somethin’ here.

M.V.P.: Yeah we noticed, just like those people up there snorin’ away. Keep quiet an’ really listen dog, you’ll hear it.

Sheamus: Is dat some kind o’ joke? You tryin’ t’ be funny are y’fella? Well let me tell y’somethin’; you’re not. . .

M.V.P.: . . . I’m sorry y’didn’t like it but we’re actually here f’ a reason, an’ it ain’t t’ stop all these people fallin’ asleep listenin’ t’ you. See while we were tryin’ t’ stay awake back there we heard y’talkin’ ‘bout how Smackdown’s runnin’ scared of facin’ team Raw an’ of course you at Survivor Series, but in case you ain’t sure we ain’t Raw guys, we’re straight from Friday nights; we’re Smackdown guys. Now I can’t speak f’ the whole of Smackdown, but Sheamus we ain’t the least bit scared of you or Raw.

Sheamus: Well y’should be.

M.V.P.: Maybe but the deal’s this fella, you wanna know somethin’ bout what you’re up against at Survivor Series? Well look no further. An’ while we’re at it, you wanna know who our captain is? Here I am boys an’ girl. Look no further than M-V-P.

Sheamus: You’re havin’ a laugh right fella? You’re tellin’ me you two are de best Smackdown has t’ offer? It was only a few weeks ago I was watchin’ No Mercy an’ you guys embarrassed America in dat flag match, an’ if you’re seriously tellin’ me you’re my opposition, dat embarrassment will be nothin’ compared t’ the embarrassment you’ll have after de Survivor Series.

Killings doesn’t look too happy and asks MVP for the microphone, and Smackdown’s team captain hands it to him.

Ron Killings:
Y’wanna talk bout No Mercy huh? Fine. Yeah we were embarrassed alright, not just f’ us but f’ them. It was one bad night but it’s a night we ain’t ever gonna let happen, but y’know what they say right Sheamus? What don’t kill y’makes y’stronger an’ at Survivor Series we’re sure as hell gonna be stronger. You might be all that champ but if y’think f’ a minute y’can beat us all by y’self you’re gonna be in f’ a whole world o’ hurt. You ain’t gonna beat us all by y’self punk. The only thing you’re gonna do if y’keep runnin’ y’mouth is piss off ev’ryone on y’team. Us, we’ve got each other’s back no matter what. . .

Sheamus: . . . Good f’ you. I’m happy for ya but de fact remains Ron, I’m undefeated an’ still will be after I beat you an whatever else Smackdown losers y’have at de Survivor Series. It’s nothin’ personal fellas, it’s jus’ de way it is.

Ron Killings: Not personal huh? Well neither’s this.

Killings snaps and smashes Sheamus in the face with the microphone to a big pop. M.V.P. looks stunned by it but smiles as he sees Sheamus rolling around on the mat with the ticked off Killings staring down at him. Smackdown’s captain likes what he sees and steps towards Sheamus as the Intercontinental Champion moves up on to his knees. M.V.P. pulls him up and stomps him in the gut then sends him spiralling down with the Playmaker to another decent pop. He & Killings slap hands laughing and “I’m Comin’” plays again when Carlito & Eddie Colon run down the ramp and slide in to the ring with Sheamus writhing about on the mat.

The Puerto Ricans stare right at the Smackdown superstars who hold their hands up and back off, leaving the ring to the surprise of The Celtic Warrior as he sits up. He’s shocked to see Carlito standing there and his tormentor in recent weeks turns round and offers him hand up. Sheamus just stares at him in shock and then grabs Carlito’s hand who pulls him up but quickly lets go and slips behind him, BACKSTABBER! The crowd cheer again as Sheamus hits the deck again. Carlito & Eddie smirk, as do M.V.P. & Killings on the ramp as “Cool” plays with Carlito enjoying seeing Sheamus on the mat.



*Cut to the Arena*


*Match #2*
Non-Title Match
Eddie Colon w/Carlito
vs. Sheamus


The Celtic Warrior was fired up for this one from the get go, and with his rival and fellow Team Raw member, Carlito watching on from his brother’s corner, it seemed to fire him up even more. Carlito’s presence gained the attention of the Intercontinental Champion but it didn’t make any difference to the contest as the captain of Team Raw dominated Eddie Colon. Just as it looked like Eddie may make some sort of comeback, the Irishman ended it in a flash, shoving him down to the mat as Eddie went looking for a monkey flip. Sheamus just watched on as his opponent picked himself back up, and he exploded out of his corner, taking the Puerto Rican’s head off with the Brogue Kick.

Carlito was looking massively concerned for his brother as the menacing Irishman turned his head towards his rival before dragging the helpless Eddie back up to his feet, setting him up for the High Cross. The younger Colon sibling couldn’t escape and was sent crashing in to the canvas with Sheamus coolly making the cover to pick up the comfortable win. He was then passed his Intercontinental title and had his arm raised as Carlito entered the ring to check on his brother. Sheamus stayed cool and simply glanced across at him smirking with his title draped over his shoulder.

Winner: Sheamus by pinfall.

Todd Grisham is standing by at the interview set.

Todd Grisham:
Ladies an’ gentleman my guests at this time are one of the teams that will be competing for the world tag team titles in just under two weeks from now at the Survivor Series. Please welcome Christopher Daniels an’ Kaval.

The camera zooms out and there stand Christopher Daniels & Kaval with both men looking extremely serious and Daniels is dressed to compete.

Todd Grisham:
Guys, last week you made it perfectly clear how you felt about having to compete in the triple threat match at Survivor Series. . .

Daniels pulls the microphone towards him and away from Grisham, staring right at him.

Christopher Daniels:
. . . Well Todd, clearly we didn’t. I f’ one felt that I couldn’t have made it any clearer than I already did. It’s not as if it’s difficult to understand this situation we’ve found ourselves in where you knock out your opponents to progress t’ the next round. We’ve done that ev’ry step of the way. We earned our spot in the final at Survivor Series, bottom line. Now I know our opponents might be popular with those fans out there but the facts remain the same, as much as the fans an’ Eric Bischoff might want them in the final, they don’t deserve t’ be there.

Daniels lets go of the microphone and leans back, but Grisham still looks slightly uncomfortable.

Todd Grisham:
Well with that said and I’m sure some people would agree with you, in just a few minutes you will be going one-on-one with one of those men you’ll meet at the Survivor Series in Gregory Helms. Would it be right to assume that you’ll be looking to prove your point t’night?

Christopher Daniels: Well Todd it looks like I may have underestimated you. It appears that you actually have understood what we’ve been talking about. To answer your question, when I get in that ring with Helms in just a moment, I’m going to show him, Matt Hardy, Rey Mysterio and even Eric Bischoff that they don’t deserve to be in that ring with us. Helms can run his mouth as much as he wants, it won’t change a thing. He’s going t’ get an indication of how Survivor Series is going t’ go. He’s going t’ lose t’night just like he will in two weeks when it matters when we beat him again to become the new deserving World Tag Team Champions, but if f’ some reason that doesn’t happen, there’ll be hell t’ pay.

Daniels looks straight in to the camera meaning every word he says with Kaval doing the same.

The Women’s Champion, Melina is walking through the corridor and stops at the door of Eric Bischoff. She’s not the same cheerful looking Melina, and as she is about to knock on the door, Eric Bischoff opens it with the both of them looking surprised to see each other.

Eric Bischoff:
Melina, what can I do f’ you?

Melina: Well I wanted to talk to you about this crazy woman who keeps coming after me an’ the rest of the divas. She’s done it two weeks in a row and you must’ve seen what she’s done to Kelly Kelly an’ Gail Kim.

Eric Bischoff: Y’know as a matter of fact I have. It’s hard not to.

Melina: Look Eric, it might not be my place but I felt like I had to come here as the Women’s Champion an’ ask you what you’re going t’ do about it to make sure it doesn’t happen again before things really get out of control.

Eric Bischoff: Well as it happens I have done something about it but you might not like it. You know like ev’ryone does around here that I strive t’ make Raw the best show it can be, but seeing her dominate those divas you just mentioned, well it made me take a look at the diva’s division. See f’ a while now the diva’s division has been missing something. I know she’s been critical of you Melina but what Mia Rain said was right. There’s been no one really stepping up but this woman, she’s made ev’ryone sit up an’ take notice. She sure made me sit up, an’ like you said I need t’ do something about it, an’ I have. I’ve signed her to a contract, an’ her name by the way is Kong, Queen Kong. . .

Melina: . . . You’ve signed her?

Eric Bischoff: I sure have. She’s the most exciting thing to happen as far as the divas are concerned in a long long time. There’s no diva on Raw or in the whole W-W-E like her. She’s exactly what we need t’ shake things up, but right now Melina there’s something else you may need t’ worry about. See later on t’night there’s going t’ be a number one contender match for your women’s title. Now before you ask, Kong’s not involved. As tempted as I was I thought it wouldn’t exactly be fair to give her a title shot so soon. I’m sure her time will come but t’night it’ll be Gail Kim an’ Mia Rain battling it out t’ take you on for that title of yours in two weeks. That’s not going t’ be a problem as well is it?

Melina: No I guess that’s fine.

Eric Bischoff: Good, I’m glad t’ hear it. You have a good night.

Bischoff taps her on the shoulder before walking off down the hall giving the Women’s Champion a fair bit to think about.


*Video Recap*
From Last Week

Christopher Daniels & Kaval
are standing in the middle of the ring with their music playing but it stops. Both men are dressed casually looking pretty pissed off and Daniels is holding a microphone while the fans boo them.

Christopher Daniels:
You can boo all you want but the fact of the matter is there’s only two people who have the right to be angry right now an’ that’s us. See at about the same time as we arrived in this company this show had no tag team champions. The titles had been vacated due to an injury to one of the champions an’ that’s fine. What was even better about that was Eric Bischoff, the man who brought us here by the way came up with what Kaval an’ I agreed was a great decision by making an eight team elimination tournament to crowd new World Tag Team Champions.

*Pop*

Christopher Daniels: Exactly. What better way t’ crown new champions? Take eight teams and the last team standing become the new tag team champions. . . Now it seemed like a flawless idea. You take eight teams, put them in matches until there are just two left t’ battle it out for the titles. That seems quite straight forward, however as you just saw that’s not the case, because last week there was one spot left in the final for one of those remaining teams t’ challenge us at the Survivor Series with us having earned our place in the final. Now the key word there was earned. We earned our place because we won both our matches, as are the traditional rules of an elimination tournament. Those rules don’t state that two teams can just be given a free pass to the next round like we saw last week. What was the point of even having the match in the first place? To put it simply, we’re not happy.

“Live for the Moment

A big pop greets Matt Hardy & Gregory Helms as they walk out to the stage with Shannon Moore, all wearing ‘Team Omega’ T-shirts. They’re in a more relaxed mood as they walk down the ramp with the angry duo of Daniels & Kaval looking on, and as Hardy, Helms & Moore step in the ring, Matt goes to get a microphone. He walks back to join his Team Omega buddies and his music stops with cheers still ringing round the TEE Center.


Matt Hardy:
Y’know what? Maybe it’s not but you know what you’ve gotta do guys? You’ve just gotta deal with it.

Christopher Daniels: Well with no disrespect, you would say that.

Matt Hardy: Well yeah, maybe I would but reality is that’s the way it is. This ain’t exactly how we wan’ed it t’ pan out either. Before the match last week we were hopin’ it’d be you an’ us at Survivor Series, but hey that’s not how it’s played out.

Christopher Daniels: We’re the victims here. You two, Rey Mysterio an’ his mini me are the lucky ones in all this. You’ve already won without even winning, an’ to us that’s criminal. That’s why we’re out here, t’ make sure that something’s done about this. You can say we just have t’ deal with it as much as you want, you have to accept that we simply won’t just deal with it.

Helms takes the stick from Matt.

Gregory Helms:
Hey, Daniels, we heard you already. They heard you too. You’ve won your matches, yeah you’re undefeated, we get it. If you’re that good, what’s your problem? You’ll have no problem beatin’ us plus Rey an’ his rookie if you’re as good as you make out.

Christopher Daniels: That’s not the point. We shouldn’t have to beat you both. We. . .

“Booyaka 619”

A massive pop breaks out in the arena along with a pyro explosion as Rey Mysterio & Mystico, his rookie walk out to the stage. Mysterio has a microphone in hand and Daniels & Kaval look even angrier now at the further interruption though. Matt, Helms & Moore all give their friends a brief round of applause.


Rey Mysterio:
What’s up with you guys huh? Not you Matt, Greg, you two. I’ve been around here long enough t’ know that you can’t look a gift horse in the mouth. Look at this way; you’re still in the final an’ you’ve still got a shot at being the new World Tag Team Champions. That’s the only thing that matters. We all want the titles an’ we’ve all got a shot.

Christopher Daniels: In any other tournament you’d be out an’ the opponents waiting for you in the next round would get a bye, a free pass if y’will. If that was the case here we’d be the new champions as we speak which is why Rey we’re not all that happy about having t’ face not just you an’ Mystico but these undeserving southern hippies too.

Gregory Helms: You better watch that mouth o’ yours before I shut it for ya.

Christopher Daniels: I’d love nothing more than t’ see you try but we both know that’s not going t’ happen. Even you aren’t that stupid. Well maybe you are but I wouldn’t advise it. If you’ve not seen what we’ve done in short space of time here you wouldn’t be making such stupid threats. We’re superior to any team on this show, in this company and any other team in the world t’day which is why whatever does or doesn’t happen before Survivor Series we’ll still be the next World Tag Team Champions.

Helms gets right in Daniels’ face with Matt & Moore trying to hold him back with Daniels & Kaval standing firm, not looking in the least bit intimidated.


Rey Mysterio:
Hey, guys, up here. What’s goin’ on? We’re all fightin’ t’ be tag team champions. This is crazy. We’ve all got a shot, but if we’re layin’ it all out on the line t’night, there’s only gonna be one of us walkin’ out of Survivor Series with the titles. Y’might not agree with me but that’s not gonna either of you, it’s gonna be us.

“Booyaka 619” hits again to another pop as Mysterio & Mystico stare down all serious at the tension filled ring with Helms & Daniels staring daggers at each other, all talking smack at each other. Daniels then directs his frustration up at Rey as the Mexicans mentor & rookie combination stand there defiantly staring back at them all.


*Cut to the Arena*


*Match #3*
Gregory Helms w/Matt Hardy & Shannon Moore
vs. Christopher Daniels w/Kaval


Rey Mysterio & Mystico joined J.R. & Cole at the announce table to a big pop before their Survivor Series opponents made their entrances, and their presence certainly didn’t go down well with Daniels & Kaval as they made their way down to the ring. It didn’t seem to bother Helms or his Team Omega buddies at ringside with Matt & Moore keeping their branded T-shirts on while Helms took his off for the match. It was an exciting & competitive match with both men looking extremely determined from start to finish. It was Daniels who started the match the better and found himself on top.

It didn’t take long for Helms to work his way in to it though, and as we got to the closing stages it was still nip & tuck. The momentum was with Helms having dodged the BME by bringing his knees up in to the gut of his opponent, and as both men picked themselves up he hit a northern lights suplex, but Daniels kicked out at two. Helms looked to finish the job and went for the Nightmare on Helms Street, but as he spun round, Daniels pushed him in to the ropes. Helms came back and slid through his opponent’s legs before racing up to his feet and ducking a wild clothesline to explode with a super kick, what he calls the Sugarsmack.

Daniels fell flat on his back with the crowd cheering and Hardy & Moore getting excited on the outside, watching as Helms threw himself down on top of Daniels to make the cover, but Daniels got his shoulder up at the count of two to the absolute shock of the fans, Helms and his Team Omega buddies. Kaval breathed a sigh of relief of the outside as the disappointed Helms picked himself back up and walked in to the corner where he watched intently as Daniels tried to sit back up. The focus was there for all to see as Helms glared impatiently towards the groggy Daniels, and as he sat up he charged at him, looking for the Shining Wizard.

Daniels though ducked his head and rolled Helms up, only getting a two count as Helms powered out. They both rushed up to their feet with Helms up the quickest and striking the first blow with a kick to the gut. He then lifted Daniels up on to his shoulders for the Topspin Facebuster, but Daniels quickly wriggled down and spun him round to kick him in the gut and followed it up with a spin-out powerbomb. Helms was down & out but kicked out of Daniels’ cover at two, not surprising him all that much. Daniels went back to work straight away and set him up for the Angel’s Wings, but with the crowd behind him, Helms countered with a back body drop.

That got them cheering again and Hardy & Moore were also encouraging him with Kaval doing the same for his partner. Helms turned round and pulled Daniels up, this time connecting with the Nightmare on Helms Street, and with the fans cheering he went for the cover, but again Daniels just about got his shoulder up in the nick of time. This time Helms’ frustration was there for all to see, and even Hardy & Moore were looking deflated as they looked on. Rey & Mystico were looking impressed and Rey said so on commentary as Helms calmly stood up and watched the groggy Daniels lifted his head up off the mat.

Helms looked over at his buddies before going back to work, urging Daniels back up, and as he clawed his way back up, Helms turned back and ran the ropes. As he came racing back, Daniels exploded in to life and levelled him with a hellacious enzuigiri. The fans fell flat, absolutely stunned by Daniels’ counter, as were Hardy & Helms. They could only look on helplessly as the starry eyed Daniels clawed his way back up to his feet and then reached down to bring the dead weight of Helms up off the mat and in to place for the Angel’s Wings. This time Helms couldn’t counter and was driven head first in to the canvas with Daniels wasting no time in making the cover.

He got the three count to the disappointment of the crowd and the rest of Team Omega and then slipped out of the ring to join Kaval on the outside with the ref following to raise his hand, as did Kaval with Hardy & Moore looking on while kneeling over Helms who was starting to come round with Rey saying on commentary how impressed he was and how tough it’s going to be at Survivor Series. Daniels & Kaval then headed back up the ramp before turning back with Daniels throwing his arms up in the air, then signalling the titles will be theirs with a big smirk on his face, frustrating Team Omega in the ring as they then watched the smug duo walk to the back.

Winner: Christopher Daniels by pinfall.


*Video Promo*

We’re shown a split screen of Mia Rain on one side and Gail Kim with her rookie, Shantelle Taylor on the other making their way through the back as Kim & Rain go head-to-head for a shot at Melina’s Women’s Championship when we come back after the break.


*Commercial Break*


*Video Recap*
From Last Week

Gail Kim & Shantelle Taylor vs. The Bella Twins

Just as the bell rung and Shantelle walked towards one of the Bellas, boos broke out in the stands and some of the fans stood up looking towards the stage. All four divas didn’t know what was going on and they turned to see the same huge black woman who attacked Kelly last week walking menacingly down the ramp. The behemoth entered the ring with all four divas fearing for their lives. Nikki & Brie fled to safety, pulling at each other to get out of the firing line. Poor Shantelle looked petrified, but her mentor entered the ring and stood up for her rookie. The mystery woman just stared coldly at them, unsettling Taylor mainly. Kim decided to fight fire with fire and threw a right forearm shot at her, not doing a single bit of damage except anger the monster who fired back with a shot of her own, knocking Kim down.

She then blocked a right from Taylor and sent her down to the mat with a headbutt. Gail unwisely made her way back up to her feet only to get fired in to the corner, then the monster charged in at her, crushing her with a ferocious splash, and as Gail staggered out in to her path, she was tossed about like a rag doll with an overhead belly to belly suplex. Taylor also picked herself back up, and she too regretted it as the dominant beast charged at her too, nailing her with a thunderous lariat to send the young blonde diva back down. She was then dragged up with ease before falling victim to a lifting double underhook facebuster.

Taylor lay there motionless as the behemoth stood up glaring down at her with no remorse whatsoever. She then glanced at Gail who was barely moving before staring menacingly in to the crowd with J.R. & King still questioning who the hell she is, and the camera then quickly cut to the back to show John Morrison and the stunned WWE Women’s Champion, Melina who caught sight of her first hand last week watching on a TV in the locker room. The shot went back to the ring as the monster left the ring to a ton of heat, walking back up the ramp without looking back while both Kim & Taylor squirming around on the canvas.


*Cut to the Arena*



*Match #4*
Number One Contenders Match for the WWE Women’s Championship
Gail Kim w/Shantelle Taylor
vs. Mia Rain


Melina came out to watch the two divas battle it out for the right to face her from the stage, and she saw both Gail & Rain give it their all. The fans were right behind Kim, much to the frustration of the very focused Rain. She started off on the back foot but came back firing, catching Gail with a dropkick when she hit a springboard off the ropes looking for a crossbody. She went on to dominate and kept glancing at the crowd & Melina, making sure they were watching her, and Melina was for sure. The Women’s Champion looked concerned at points for Kim, especially when it looked as if Rain had it in the bag after a double knee back-breaker.

Somehow Kim got her shoulder up, and even her rookie on the outside looked surprised. As did Melina, but especially Rain. She took it hard and frustration got the better of her. She stood right back up and dragged Kim up with her, wasting no time in firing her in to the corner before racing in. Kim caught her off guard by driving her elbow in to Rain’s face. The crowd were liking that as Rain was sent staggering away from the corner, and Gail looked to take full advantage by heading to the top rope. The fans cheered as Gail reached the summit and then jumped off as Rain turned round, right in to a missile dropkick.

Gail scurried across right away to make the cover but Rain kicked out with Melina watching on with interest on the stage. Rain was showing some resilience and made her way back up as quickly as she could. Gail wasted no time in doing the same and jumped up in the air, on to Rain’s shoulders for a hurricanrana, getting a big pop as she held on for the cover. Again Rain kicked out and they made their way back up to their feet, battling it out back & forth right to the very end where Gail was on the edge of victory, almost locking in the Flying Dragon, a tilt-a-whirl headscissors armbar.

Rain managed to pull her arm free at the last second, surprising everyone. She raced up on to her feet with Kim right behind her and tried to take her down with a neck-breaker. Gail though pulled back and rolled Rain up with Rain kicking out. They both raced up to their feet and Gail ran back off the ropes, coming back looking for a bulldog but Rain threw her off and down to the mat. Gail landed on her face but bravely dragged herself back up, but Rain was focused big time and was right on her, helping her up and in to place for Acid Rain, a bridging straightjacket electric chair drop, and she hit it, sending Gail crashing in to the canvas.

Gail was out of it with Shantelle looking on dejectedly as Rain coolly hooked her leg and made the cover, getting the win and earning herself a shot at Melina’s women’s title in two weeks. Melina herself looked somewhat impressed as Rain stood up and got her arm raised, staring right up at Melina. The Women’s Champion was then in for a shook as Queen Kong emerged behind her and hammered her down to the floor. Rain was stunned and could only look on in shock as the behemoth made her way menacingly down the ramp with Taylor turning round and panicking.

Kong wasted no time and effortlessly shoved her down to the floor before climbing on to the apron and entering the ring. Gail was sitting up while Rain began to panic, then made a wise choice in high tailing it before Kong could get her hands on her. The fans booed as Rain jumped down to the floor with Kong’s scary eyes locked on her until they then turned in a flash to Kim who was rapidly dragged up to her feet before being on the received end of a sit-out powerbomb. Rain watched the intense Kong slowly standing up and staring right at her with Melina getting back up on the stage also looking on in awe of the behemoth while JR & King speculated as to whether anyone could stop her.

Winner: Mia Rain by pinall.

From Last Week

The Big Show in his casual clothes is pacing back & forth in the parking lot with a face like thunder with his rookie, Justin Gabriel looking concerned.


Justin Gabriel:
Come on Show, let’s just go inside.

Show stops and just stares at his rookie.

The Big Show:
I know you’ve not been in this business long J but last week Vince spat in my face. He spat in my face. No one, an’ I mean no one spits in my face, you got that? I’m not going anywhere until that son of a bitch gets here, steps out of his limo, an’ then. . . then I’m gonna make what I did t’ Shane look like nothing. Then an’ only then am I goin’ anywhere.

Gabriel doesn’t know what to do, looking very worried by his mentor who turns round and paces back & forth again.

***

The Big Show is still in the parking lot, standing still with his arms crossed, eyes focused straight ahead. His rookie, Justin Gabriel comes out to meet him along with Eric Bischoff also with him.

Eric Bischoff:
Show I know you’re not happy after last week and I get that but you’re wasting y’time. You can wait out here all night, it won’t make any diff’rence, they’re not here an’ they’re not coming.

Show shakes his head, not happy.

?:
SHOW!

Big Show, Gabriel & Bischoff turn round and see a backstage worker run towards them. He gets there and stops to take in some air for a couple of seconds.

The Big Show:
You want something?

Still gasping for air, the young looking man stands up straight with all eyes & ears on him.

Worker:
Yeah, we just got a call from your father-in-law. Your wife’s been taken t’ hospital. She’s been involved in some kind of accident. . .

The Big Show: What? Is she is okay?

Worker: We don’t know. All we know is she’s been taken to the hospital.

The Big Show: I’ve gotta get there.

Worker: Look we’ve changed your flight. It leaves in about half an hour an’ the airline knows what’s happened.

Eric Bischoff: You heard ‘im Show, just go.

He doesn’t need telling and runs towards his car in a panic, pulling it out his keys from his pockets.

***

There’s some trouble in the parking lot as we see Vince McMahon & John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield stomping all over someone on the floor by a car with the trunk open and a travel bag beside it. It looks to be Justin Gabriel and the father & son combination are really putting the boots to the South African rookie.

Vince McMahon:
That’s it son, stomp the crap out of him.

All of a sudden we see a group of security officers & officials storm out towards with them, shouting at them to stop what they’re doing, followed by Eric Bischoff, who marches over to them as they stop the attack reluctantly. The officials check on Gabriel as he remains laid out on the floor with Bischoff fuming at the remorseless Corporation.

Eric Bischoff:
What in the hell are you doing? You’re not even supposed t’ be here?. . . Wait, you planned all this didn’t you. There’s nothing wrong with Big Show’s wife is there?

J.B.L. & Vince turn & smirk at each other.

Eric Bischoff:
You guys are just sick. Get ‘em out of here.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: HEY, we’ll go of our own accord thank you very much.

Father & son step away but Layfield stops and turns back.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield:
It’s just a pity his mentor wasn’t here to look out for ‘im. What a shame.

Vince McMahon: Tragic.

They walk away laughing amongst themselves with Bischoff absolutely disgusted by them. His attention then turns to Gabriel who’s barely moving on the floor with officials already checking on him.

Eric Bischoff:
Is he okay?

Cheers break out in the arena as The Big Show, looking extremely pissed off is shown entering the arena with his travel bag, dragging it behind him with no Justin Gabriel in sight.

The WWE Champion, Batista is sat on the bench in his street clothes looking very anxious and there’s a knock on his door. He looks up and watches as Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley walks in. They look awkwardly at each other for a couple of seconds and The Animal stands up to greet her.

Batista:
Hey Steph. Thanks f’ comin’.

Looking very tense, Steph walks towards him.

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley:
I got your call Dave, what’s wrong?

Batista looks down, obviously bothered by something before looking back up at her.

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley:
Come on Dave, you know you can talk t’ me.

Batista: Yeah I know that but this whole thing Steph, it’s got way out of hand.

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley: What do you mean? There’s nothing going on t’ get out of hand.

Batista: I know that an’ you know that, but Hun’er, he doesn’t. As much as I tell ‘im he still doesn’t buy it. That’s why I need you t’ tell ‘im Steph.

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley: I have, more than once. Don’t you think I’ve tried?

Batista: That’s the thing Steph, I don’t know if. . .

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley: . . . You’ve got t’ be kidding me? You’re still letting what Randy Orton said get t’ you? Come on Dave, w. . .

Batista: . . . That’s not important right now. What’s important is my family, an’ last week my daughter was in danger ‘cause of Hun’er. That’s got nothing t’ do with what Randy said. It was all down t’ Hun’er an’ how he won’t stop until he gets his hands on me an’ the W-W-E title. Unlike him Steph my family’s more important than any title. I don’t want my daughter put in harm’s way again, ever. That’s why you need t’ talk t’ him, not because of something Randy’s said.

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley: Okay Dave, I’ll try talking to him again, not that it’ll make any diff’rence, but just so you know, this isn’t some conspiracy me an’ Hunter have put t’gether so he can become the W-W-E Champion.

Batista: Thanks, I appreciate it.

Steph grabs hold of his arm and they both take a look at each other, still tension in the air.

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley:
Don’t mention it. I just wish my girls had a dad who cared about them like the way you care about yours.

Batista smirks as Steph lets go of his arm and turns round to leave the room. The Animal sits back down on the bench, still looking fairly anxious.


*Cut to the Arena*


*Match #5*
John Morrison & Carlito
vs. Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig


Rhodes & Hennig entered the ring looking very smug having been given a place on Team Raw, and just as Carlito’s music hit and he walked out to the stage, a big cheer broke out in the crowd. The camera then cut to ringside and Smackdown’s M.V.P. & Ron Killings were sliding in the ring having jumped the security wall. The Team Smackdown members returned the favour and attacked Rhodes & Hennig, hammering away at them and then stomping the hell out of them. Carlito stormed down the ramp, then followed by John Morrison, and M.V.P. & Killings welcomed them in to the ring with Cody & Joe down on the mat.

They slugged it out and then Sheamus came charging down the ramp and so did security led by Eric Bischoff, who ordered them to get rid of the Smackdown duo. The security workers stormed past Sheamus and hit the ring, pulling them away from Morrison & Carlito, dragging them out of the ring with Sheamus trying to get at them desperately. He was held back as the fans booed with the intense Smackdown duo furious, trying to wriggle free and talking smack back at Sheamus and the security guys. Bischoff was angry too and stepped aside on the stage as security dragged them backstage with the Raw guys watching on looking extremely pissed.

Result: Non-Starter.

‘The Legend Killer’ Randy Orton
and his rookie, Darren Young, both in their street clothes are shown walking through the back, seemingly headed towards the ring.


*Commercial Break*


There’s a lot of commotion in the back as the security officers we saw before the break drag M.V.P. & Ron Killings to the door to the parking lot with a fuming Sheamus following them.

Sheamus:
If it’s a war you want at Survivor Series fellas, den dat’s what you’ve got, I promise y’dat.

Ron Killings: YEAH? Y’BETTER BRING IT.

Sheamus: Oh I will, don’t y’worry bout dat fella. I’ll bring it dis Friday night on Smackdown.

M.V.P.: Let go o’ us.

The security officers loosen their grip on both M.V.P. & Killings.

M.V.P.:
Y’wanna show up Friday night? Y’heard ‘im dog, y’all can bring it. We ain’t gonna ‘ave y’kicked out like a bunch o’ cowards.

Sheamus: Who d’ y’think you’re callin’ a coward?

The Celtic Warrior goes right after them but security drag M.V.P. & Killings away again and open the door as John Morrison & Carlito appear behind Sheamus and hold him back, catching him totally by surprise.

Sheamus:
What de hell d’ y’think y’doin’?

Carlito: Look man, we might not see eye t’ eye right now, but t’night you had our backs. F’ now, the only thing that matters is beatin’ Smackdown at Survivor Series. Anything else, that can wait.

John Morrison: He’s right. We’ve gotta stick t’gether. We might not all get along but we don’t want those guys coming over here like they did t’night. You going after them like that chasing them in t’ the parking lot, that’s not gonna help. We need t’ do this our way.

Sheamus looks at them both, still livid.

Sheamus:
Whatever fellas. Dare’s only one way we’re gonna do dis an’ dat’s my way.

The Celtic Warrior barges past them both heading in the opposite direction of the parking lot, leaving them looking at each other and shaking their heads.


*Cut to the Arena*


“I hear voices in my head. . .”

‘The Legend Killer’ Randy Orton
walks out to the stage to a largely negative reception with some cheers mixed in as he and his rookie, Darren Young look in to the crowd and then walk down the ramp and in to the ring. Orton walks over to the apron and asks for a microphone. His music cuts and frees him to speak with some of the fans still booing, not seeming to bother Orton in the slightest.

Randy Orton:
It appears that right now there are people back there in the locker room questioning my actions of late as far as Batista is concerned. I hear that people are saying I can’t be trusted and that I’m trying to manipulate him. I’ve come out here t’night t’ set the record straight. I’ve been completely honest from the moment I lost the W-W-E Championship at WrestleMania. Since then I’ve said all I want is t’ get back the W-W-E title. I don’t care an’ never have about what people say about me.

*Heat*

Randy Orton: All I’m doing is covering my back. I know an’ Dave knows what Triple H is capable of more than anyone. We know that he’ll do whatever it takes an’ more t’ get his hands on the W-W-E title. I know from experience when he stabbed me in the back when I became the youngest world champion in hist’ry. Within twen’y four hours he turned on me an’ all I’ve done is make sure he doesn’t get that chance again because I know he’ll take it. Any chance he’d get t’ take me out, he’d do it in a flash. He wouldn’t think twice. That’s why I went t’ Batista, not t’ cover his back but t’ cover mine, an’ last week Triple H went after ‘im. Who’s t’ know I wasn’t next? I wasn’t gonna let him take me out before Survivor Series. It’s his fault I’m not the W-W-E Champion right now. He blindsided me at Unf’given when I had the title in the bag. I had it won. I had Batista beat.

*Mixed*

Randy Orton: People back there have been saying he needs to apologise for what he did t’ Batista last week in front of his daughter but the real apology he owes is t’ me. He needs t’ apologise t’ me f’ what he did at Unf’given, but if he doesn’t I’ll be more than happy in two weeks at Survivor Series t’ beat it out of ‘im.

*Mixed*

Randy Orton: He might’ve cost me the title that night but he won’t cost me it again. Nothing is gonna stop me this time. Me, Hun’er an’ Batista all know why he stabbed me in the back all those years ago, for no other reason that he knew I was better than him, that I was going t’ go on an’ dominate this company f’ years t’ come. That’s why I. . .

“TIME T’ PLAY THE GAME. . .”

A very serious looking Triple H walks out to the stage to a ton of heat from the Biloxi crowd. He stops & stares at Orton who’s now staring right back at him, and The Game heads off down the ramp with his eyes solely fixed on Orton who watches Triple H step through the ropes and walk right up to him. They go eye-to-eye with Young watching closely in case anything kicks off but they just stare at each other and The Game backs off to walk past him and get a microphone. Boos echo around the arena as the music cuts and Triple H stands by the ropes staring over at The Legend Killer with a huge amount of tension between them, and The Game walks closer towards his former Evolution team-mate.

Triple H:
Randy, you’re right. will do whatever I have to t’ get my hands on the W-W-E title. Don’t f’get it. If I felt I had t’ take you an’ Dave out before Survivor Series, I’d ‘ave done it by now. The fact is I don’t need to. I don’t need to for one simple reason, that I know I can beat the both of you. That’s exactly what I’m going t’ do at Survivor Series when I once again become the W-W-E Champion.

*Major Heat*

Triple H: As f’ all this crap about whether people trust you, talking about how I owe you an’ him an apology, I couldn’t care less an’ you can both shove your apologies up your asses.

*Heat*

Triple H: What does piss me off though Randy is you an’ Dave getting involved in my business, an’ when I mean business I mean my wife.

Randy Orton: With respect Hun’er, I think you’re talking t’ the wrong person. The only business I care about is getting back the W-W-E title. I couldn’t care less what your wife gets up to unless you’re the ones playing Dave. See I know I’m not playing ‘im. How do we know you’ve not been planning t’ stab him in the back? It’s not like you’ve not done it before an’ we know you’ll do anything like you just said y’self, whatever it takes t’ get what you want.

Triple H: You don’t know Randy. I don’t care what you wanna believe. You can believe whatever you want, it makes no diff’rence t’ me. All you need t’ know is that when me you an’ Dave get in this ring at Survivor Series with the W-W-E Championship on the line, I don’t need Steph or anyone else on my side. I’ll win that title all by myself. You can talk about what happened however many years ago it was, an’ yeah you might’ve been the youngest world champion of all time, but how did that work out for y’Randy? How long did you have the title before I took it away from you? That was a lesson back then, now it’s a reminder. Back then I owned your ass an’ I still do. The same goes f’ Dave. You can both f’get about walking out of Survivor Series as champion.

*Heat*

Triple H: Randy you’ve had more than enough chances t’ get it back, wh. . .

Randy Orton: . . . Like I said, if it wasn’t f’ you I wouldn’t need another chance. I’d. . .

Triple H: . . . Keep telling yourself that, bottom line is. . .

Randy Orton: . . . THE BOTTOM LINE IS YOU GOT INVOLVED IN MY BUSINESS AT UNF’GIVEN. YOU’RE THE ONLY REASON I’M NOT THE W-W-E CHAMPION RIGH. . .

“In The End”

An enormous roar goes off inside the Allstate Arena as the fired up WWE Champion, Batista walks out to the stage with a microphone in hand and his title draped over his shoulder. He stops & stares down at Orton, Triple H & Young in the ring for a couple of seconds and then heads down the ramp without looking in to the crowd, attention firmly on his rivals. He walks up the steps and in to the ring, again staring at both men, mainly Triple H as the music is cut in the truck, bringing out the cheers and chants of “Batista”.

Batista:
Y’know what? I’m sick of all this talk. What happened all those years ago in Evolution, it’s in the past. If the guys in the back are talkin’ about me an’ Steph, I couldn’t care less. I’ve said all I have to on that, but Hun’er one last time, there’s nothin’ goin’ on.

The Game glares other at The Animal, obviously not believing him.

Batista:
As f’ you Randy, you wanna set the record straight? I’ll set you straight right now. I appreciate you coverin’ your back an’ mine at the same time but I don’t trust you. Saying that I trust you a hell of a lot more than I trust you Hun’er.

*Pop*

Batista: I know you’ll both do whatever it takes t’ get this title off me but let me tell y’somethin’. I’m gonna fight like crazy t’ keep this around my waist at Survivor Series an’ you’re both gonna be in the fight of your lives.

*Big Pop*

Batista: Like I said though, I’m not here t’ talk t’night. I’m here f’ one thing an’ that’s payback. Payback f’ what happened last week.

The Animal glares right over intensely at Triple H.

Batista:
Last week you attacked me in front of my daughter. She almost got hurt too an’ NO ONE HURTS MY FAMILY YOU GOT THAT?

Triple H: Y’know what Dave? That’s too bad.

Batista: TOO BAD?. . . Screw it.

Batista snaps, drops the microphone and his title belt to charge at Triple and tackle him down to the mat to a massive pop. Orton & Young step back in shock and just watch as Batista pummels The Game with a series of right hands. The WWE Champion lets go and stands up, bringing Triple H with him and firing him in to the ropes. The Game hits them but holds on to them, infuriating Batista. The Animal runs right at him, not waiting around, but he runs right in to an extended elbow and Triple H runs out as he turns round to nail him with a high knee lift.

The Game stares down at him but Orton & Young run up from behind him and club him down to the mat, then put the boots to him. The Legend Killer means business now and instructs his rookie to pull Triple H up and he does, letting go for his mentor to leap up and plant him with the RKO to a mixed reception but mainly cheers. As Orton stands up, so does Batista and they look awkwardly at each other with the crowd cheering. Orton turns his head in to the crowd for a split second before turning back to catch the WWE Champion off guard with an RKO, this time to a ton of heat.

The fans boo the hell out of The Viper as he stands back up and stares down remorselessly at both the fallen Batista & Triple H as “Voices” plays. He then turns his head and sees the WWE title lying there. He walks over to it and picks it up, taking a long look at it before looking back at Batista and dropping it on his chest. He then goes to leave the ring with Young as the fans continue to boo him with Batista & Triple H both coming round slowly.



*Video Promo*

Looking in one fierce mood tonight, The Big Show makes his way through the back as he prepares for action when we come back.


*Commercial Break*


*Match #5*
The Big Show vs. Orlando Jordan


Show was an angry giant from the moment he stepped out in to the arena. He didn’t give Jordan a look in, making quick work of the former United States Champion. Jordan was helpless as the world’s largest athlete threw him around like a rag doll at times. He had Jordan in agony, especially after a reverse thrown powerbomb in to the turnbuckle pads. Jordan was defenceless as Show dragged him up to his feet and sent him right back down, crashing in to the canvas courtesy of a thunderous chokeslam that earned him the victory, not that he was satisfied with it as he walked over to the apron and asked for a microphone.

Winner: The Big Show by pinfall.

The Big Show: VINCE, J-B-L, if you’re back there an’ had the guts t’ show up t’night, I want you t’ drag your sorry asses down here right now.

*Big Pop*

The Big Show: Come on, I’m not goin’ anywhere ‘til y. . .

A barrage of boos breaks out as Vince McMahon & John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield casually walk out to the stage with J-B-L holding a microphone and looking down at the furious Big Show.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield:
Show, we don’t resort t’ threats, and if you think I’d allow my father to walk on down t’ that ring t’night you’re even dumber than we gave you credit for.

*Heat*

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: To put it simply there’s no way in hell either of us are stepping in that ring with you. We just came out here t’ wish that rookie of yours well. We just hope he’s not too hurt after last week.

J.B.L. & Vince turn to each other smirking with Show livid in the ring.

The Big Show:
I’m not surprised. You guys proved last week just how gutless you are attacking Gabriel like that but it wasn’t a threat. I swear I’m not leaving here ‘til I get my hands on you, but John I’ve got a deal for ya. If you wanna leave Vince out of this, I’m happy t’ leave him out of it an’ just kick your ass.

*Pop*

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield: I’m sure you are Show but like I said, neither of us are stepping a foot in that ring.

The Big Show: Well, don’t say I didn’t warn you.

The Big Show drops the stick and steps over the ropes, taking Vince & J.B.L by surprise. The giant jumps down on to the floor and makes his way up the ramp to a big pop.

John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield:
You’re really gonna do this are y’Show? Fine, (turns to Vince) but dad you stay there, I’ll take care of this.

J.B.L. hands Vince the microphone and takes off his jacket, then passes it to his dad too and heads off down the ramp, stomping his way down as Show stops at the bottom, urging J.B.L. to get on down, ready & waiting for him. Layfield has his eyes locked on Show and means business too, and as he gets towards him at the foot of the ramp, he starts talking smack, getting some back from Show when there’s a loud pop. Show smirks and the cheers force J.B.L. to turn round and see Justin Gabriel battering Vince with a series of right hands, knocking him to the floor.

Gabriel looks like a man possessed as he puts the boots to Vince, infuriating Layfield who turns round to go & help him out, but Show grabs him by the shoulder and then with his other hand to send him crashing in to the barricade. Gabriel at the top of the ramp picks Vince up and sends him face first in to the stage. The South African turns his attention elsewhere and paces down the ramp as his mentor drags J.B.L. back up and tosses him down on the ramp, sending him rolling down to the floor by the apron.

Show & Gabriel follow with the seven footer dragging him right back up to send him flying in to the steel steps to an almighty crash, getting another big pop from the crowd. Show doesn’t look satisfied though with Gabriel staring down coldly at the helpless J.B.L. Big Show now sees the steps on the floor and takes a glance back at the fallen J.B.L., then picks them up to a huge roar. Unwittingly, Layfield claws his way back up on the floor with Vince shown writhing around at the top of the stage.

J.B.L. looks in a bad way as he picks himself back up, totally oblivious to the crazed seven footer behind him, and as he turns round, Show hammers him with the steps, putting J.B.L. right back down on the floor with the fans cheering like mad. Gabriel and his mentor look at each other and Show nods towards the ring, then drags Layfield up again to toss him in to the ring, not that J.B.L. is moving. They then climb on to the apron and Show stops to give his rookie some instructions, pointing to the top rope. Gabriel nods his head emphatically and climbs up to the summit with J.B.L. lying beneath him while the fans continue to cheer.

The South African stares down intently at Layfield and then leaps up in to the air and comes crashing down on him with a 450 splash to a huge pop. Gabriel stands up, still staring down remorselessly at his attacker from last week. Show though doesn’t look satisfied enough and steps down off the apron to pick up the steps again, and he tosses them inside the ring, setting off another massive cheer from the capacity crowd. Gabriel turns his head as his mentor steps over the ropes and in to the ring with his eyes firmly focused on the weary J.B.L. as he tries to sit up.

Show positions the steps away from the ropes and goes after his rival, once again pulling him up to his feet. He drags him up to his feet and grabs him around the throat for a chokeslam to another big pop, then shifts round to the steps. Gabriel doesn’t look in the least bit shocked and watches on intently as Vince sits up on the stage, looking on in horror & helplessly. The Big Show looks possessed and stares in to the petrified eyes of Layfield, then lifts him up off the feet and chokeslams him down on to the steps with his back being slammed right on to the steel.

Vince looks shell shocked and the intense Big Show turns his head to see Vince there on the stage, and the giant stares right at him. He then turns round and climbs over the ropes again, provoking panic for the Chairman of the Board. Gabriel looks surprised now and follows his mentor who walks menacingly up the ramp with Vince desperately trying to make it up to his feet. Show gets closer towards him and then walks right up to his feet, imposing a big shadow over Vincent Kennedy McMahon.

He begs for mercy as Show glares down at him with evil intentions, then reaches down and pulls him up to his feet. Gabriel looks slightly concerned now as his mentor pulls Vince towards the edge of the stage with Vince really starting to panic. He pleads for his life as Show grabs him around the throat, getting ready for a chokeslam with the fans going nuts. Vince is freaking out and begs Show not to do it, and even Gabriel watches on nervously with Show not showing any signs of showing him mercy.

It looks like Vince is going to cry, desperately pleading with Show to let him go, and the seven footer for some reason pulls back and lets him go to a ton of heat with Vince dropping to his knees and breathing a huge sigh of relief. Show stares down at him with Vince looking up at him, still relieved and breathing heavily as J.B.L. comes round in the ring, completely oblivious to what’s going on with Show still glaring down at Vince and Gabriel looking on behind his merciless mentor.

>13 Days To Go!<


*Video Recap*
From Last Week

“Priceless, baby I’m priceless. . .”

The super cocky Ted DiBiase strolls out to the stage in his ring gear in confident stride with his girlfriend, Maryse and his rookie, Ezekiel Jackson by his side to a barrage of boos. Maryse too is smiling like a cat that’s got the cream while Jackson is as intense as ever as they all walk down the ramp with the smug DiBiase as he takes pleasure in shrugging off the deafening heat being thrown at him. Jackson heads up the steps and holds the ropes down for Maryse and then his mentor who enters the ring. Jackson joins them and DiBiase walks over to the other side of the ring to demand a microphone, getting one before joining his girlfriend & rookie in the middle of the ring as his music cuts. The boos ring round the arena, not that they bother DiBiase at all.


Ted DiBiase:
Two weeks ago I told you I wasn’t afraid of taking on The Undertaker at the Survivor Series, then later that night I left him flat on his back in the middle of this very ring. Last week I said that I was going to the Survivor Series to beat The Undertaker and called him out where again I left him flat on his back. Hopefully now you an’ the dead man have got the message that I’m not afraid of him and that when we meet at the Survivor Series in less than three weeks I can and will beat him.

*Heat*

Ted DiBiase: As f’ t’night that’s a diff’rent story. What I’m here for right now is to extend an open challenge to anyone in the back, anyone back there just to prove to those who still naively doubt me that I am more than up to any challenge.

DiBiase turns to the stage, as do Maryse & Jackson.

Ted DiBiase:
I think I’ve made myself pretty clear. All I need is just one of you back there to come on down here. Let’s go.

Ted hands the microphone over to Maryse and looks up at the stage waiting for an opponent.

“Lambeg”

DiBiase looks a little surprised initially as Finlay, a former rival walks out to the stage with his shillelagh in hand to a decent pop. The fighting Irishman looks very serious indeed, looking somewhat pleased to have the opportunity to get in the ring with a former foe. He heads off down the ramp followed by a referee as Jackson & Maryse leave the ring with DiBiase getting himself ready for his opponent.


Finlay vs. Ted DiBiase w/Ezekiel Jackson & Maryse
DiBiase was in confident mood and started off well, but that didn’t stop Finlay coming back at him and giving the crowd as well as himself some satisfaction in roughing up the arrogant young superstar. The fighting Irishman had him screaming out for the bottom rope in an elevated Boston crab, and fortunately for Ted he managed to drag himself to safety. He was in a bad way though and as the match entered the closing stages he was again on the back foot. Finlay came within milliseconds of victory after a single arm DDT only to see Ted get his shoulder up when the ref’s hand was about to strike the mat for the third time. Even Finlay couldn’t believe it, but he went back to work to seal the deal. He pulled Ted up by the ropes and tried to get him up for the Celtic Cross. DiBiase didn’t let him though and held on to the top ropes before Finlay could get even close to it.

The veteran gave up and let go, putting him down on the mat. He tried to grab him but was raked in the eye by the quick thinking DiBiase who then ignored the ref’s warning and whipped Finlay in to the ropes. The Irishman held on to them though, pissing DiBiase off immediately. He ran right at his opponent and in to a raised boot that sent him staggering away from the ropes much to the satisfaction of the crowd. Finlay was as focused as ever as he watched his groggy opponent then spin round, prompting him to run right at Ted for a clothesline, but Ted ducked it and reacted in a flash to plant his opponent, Dream Street connected and earned Ted the hard fought victory. He stood up smirking as wide as ever with his music playing to be joined in the ring by Maryse & Jackson. He then looked down at the squirming Finlay, then at his rookie and back at Finlay like he had something in mind.

Jackson got the hint and dragged Finlay up to his feet, holding him up for the cocky Ted to talk smack to, angering Finlay no end as he tried to wriggle free. Finlay then shocked Ted by spitting at him, but with Jackson still holding on to him, the rookie spun him round and planted him with the urinage, Book of Ezekiel to a ton of heat. Ted was fuming and dropped to his knees, yelling right at the laid out Irishman when a gong hit to a huge pop. The lights went out for a couple of seconds, but when they came back on there was no sign of The Undertaker. DiBiase took a look around and was very relieved to see it was just him, Maryse, Jackson and the laid out Finlay in the ring. Then another gong hit and the lights went out again, this time for a bit longer, and as they came back on a huge cheer broke out as The Undertaker was standing in the ring right behind DiBiase & Co.

DiBiase though was laughing, shaking his head, completely oblivious to it. Maryse then turned round to realise the danger they were in and tapped her smug boyfriend on the shoulder. He turned round slowly and his grin was well & truly wiped off his face as he was sent down to the mat by a right uppercut. Jackson was then on the end of one too as the crowd went nuts. Maryse panicked big time as the phenom turned and stared right at her, and the crowd were loving it. She was begging for mercy, pleading with him not but to no avail as he grabbed her by the throat to a massive cheer inside the arena. He glared right at her looking as menacing as ever, only for DiBiase to save the day as he got to his feet and clubbed The Dead-Man in the ribs.

Maryse was free and DiBiase went for an irish whip only for it to be reversed, and as he came running back Taker nailed him with a huge boot. The fans were cheering again as DiBiase rolled under the apron and out to the floor. Jackson too was back on his feet and he spun Taker round, nailing him with a series of right hands, forcing him back in to the ropes. Jackson then successfully whipped Taker in to the ropes and ran at him for a clothesline, but Taker ducked it and ran through, coming back to nail Jackson with a flying clothesline to another huge cheer.

As both men made their way back up, Jackson back tracked to the ropes and Taker ran right at him to send him tumbling over them down to the floor below by DiBiase. The cheers echoed around the arena as “Rest in Peace” hit. Maryse wasted no time in escaping the ring to check on DiBiase & Jackson as they began to stir on the outside with Taker staring at all three of them. As Ted sat up, Taker’s eyes were locked on him and he dragged his arm across his throat, visibly concerning DiBiase. The Dead-Man kept staring at him & Maryse as Jackson too sat up, all realising that they do indeed have a huge fight on their hands at the Survivor Series.



*Cut to the Arena*


“Priceless, baby I’m priceless. . .”

Not looking to be in the best of moods tonight, Ted DiBiase walks out to the stage to a chorus of boos with Maryse & Ezekiel Jackson either side of him.

Lilian Garcia:
This bout is scheduled for one fall. Intr’ducing first from Guyana South America, weighing in at two hundred an’ eighty pounds, Ezekiel JACK-SON.

Jackson looks focused and Maryse appears to be in a bad mood too like her boyfriend as they walk down the ramp, staring daggers at the fans in the process. As they get in the ring, DiBiase walks over to Lilian and angrily demands the microphone from her, and she hands it over, although she doesn’t seem all that impressed by his attitude as his music cuts and stares in to the crowd with boos ringing round the arena.

Ted DiBiase:
Last week I stood in this ring and vowed to defeat The Undertaker at Survivor Series after leaving him flat on his back two weeks in a row.

*Heat*

Ted DiBiase: I think it’s safe t’ say that I got him spooked. He knows that he won’t be able t’ beat me in two weeks, an’ that’s why last week he jumped me like a no good coward.

*More Boos*

Ted DiBiase: Dead man. you know I’ll beat you at Survivor Series, well t’night you’ve gotta face this man (puts his hand on Jackson’s shoulder). Take a look at him Taker, he’s not afraid of you. He’s not afraid of anyone. He’s going t’ do things t’ you that no one’s ever done before, then if there’s anything left in two weeks, I’ll finish the job and beat you like I’ve said I would all along.

A ton of boos ring round the Allstate Arena as DiBiase stares intently in to the crowd.

?: Hey, up here.

DiBiase, Jackson & Maryse turn and look up at the tron where we see Eric Bischoff standing up in front of his desk in his office.

Eric Bischoff:
That’s a confident speech Ted. The worrying thing is I’m sure you actually believe that but I couldn’t help but hear what you said about The Undertaker. Did you really call him a coward? You of all people? I f’ one no better than anyone that when it comes to being a coward and attacking people from behind, you’re quite the expert. You’re a hypocrite Ted plain an’ simple. That’s why I’m concerned about this match we’re about t’ see with you being ringside, so I’m going t’ do something t’ make sure our main event goes smoothly. I think we all want t’ see a fair fight, and as long as you’re out there, that’s not going t’ happen.

Ted DiBiase: What are you saying Bischoff?

Eric Bischoff: Well that’s quite simple, but if you need me t’ spell it out for you, I’m barring you from ringside.

*Big Pop*

Ted DiBiase: WHAT? YOU CAN’T DO THAT.

Eric Bischoff: Oh I think we both know I can. Now unless you want me to send a dozen heavy handed angry security guys down there t’ drag you back here, maybe you should just walk on back yourself with that girlfriend of yours.

DiBiase & Maryse are livid, shaking their heads in disgust with the menacing Jackson not all that bothered.

Ted DiBiase:
Alright Bischoff, have it your way. It still doesn’t change what he’s about t’ do t’ The Undertaker.

Eric Bischoff: Great, then you won’t have a problem then.

DiBiase isn’t at all happy and throws his microphone down before having a quick word with Jackson and then leaving the ring with Maryse, getting a ton of heat as he walks back up the ramp and through the curtain. The menacing figure of Jackson is left all alone, not that he looks in the least bit worried as Lilian is passed the microphone by the referee with the fans awaiting the arrival of The Dead-Man.

*GONG*

“Rest in Peace”

A massive pop breaks out as The Undertaker strolls out to the stage.

Lilian Garcia:
And his opponent, from Death Valley, weighing in at two hundred an’ ninety pounds, THE UNDER-TAKER.

The fans are going crazy as The Dead-Man slowly makes his way down to the ring and up the steps, bringing the lights back on to another huge roar from the Biloxi crowd and Jackson still isn’t intimidated in the slightest as Taker removes his hat to a big pop and enters the ring to remove his jacket, getting ready for action.


*The Main Event*
The Undertaker vs. Ezekiel Jackson


The Undertaker was in for a battle even without DiBiase at ringside who was shown watching on a monitor in the back with Maryse too. It didn’t seem to make any difference to Jackson at all who had the fans concerned. Despite starting the match the stronger, as the match went on Jackson was the one on top, showing no fear of The Dead-Man whatsoever. He showed off his sheer strength when he ducked a big boot from and drove Taker in to the mat thanks to a one handed spinebuster. DiBiase was shown looking impressed and slightly stunned in the back as his rookie took it to the legendary phenom. He wasn’t done there though, not by a long shot.

He went about hurting his opponent and pulled Taker up from his knees before firing him with serious force in to the opposite corner. With Taker winded and leaning against the pads, Jackson ran in and hit a body avalanche, crushing The Dead-Man in the corner. Jackson was so focused, so intense as he then stepped back, waiting for Taker to follow him out. Slowly and gasping for breath, Taker staggered out in to his path and was scooped up off the mat in to a bearhug. The rookie was making life & breathing extremely difficult for The Undertaker, who despite having the crowd shouting his name and willing him to fight the hold, he was fighting for breath and to stay in the match.

He struggled in a big way as the menacing Jackson kept a tight grip of him, squeezing the life out of him. It looked like he had done it with Taker’s lights wiped out and the ref looked to make sure, lifting his arm up on three occasions, but as he let go for the third time, Taker fought it and held it up, just to a big pop from the capacity crowd. They cheered even more as The Dead-Man fought the hold and escaped after a series of shots to the rookie. He landed on his feet and struck with a vicious blow, almost putting Jackson on one knee. Taker then turned back and ran the ropes, but as he came running back, Jackson took him down with one hell of a back-breaker slam.

JR & King were saying how impressive the rookie was and how he could upset The Dead-Man, and DiBiase was looking very confident, yet still very anxious as his rookie went for a cover, but Taker wasn’t done and got his shoulder before the count of three. Jackson was starting to get frustrated, clearly as he leaned back on his knees and he glared in to the crowd before dragging the phenom back up, getting him in place for the Book of Ezekiel (ura-nage). Taker fought it though, fighting his way out of it with a couple of vicious elbow shots to the side of the rookie’s head.

He then fired him in to the ropes and ducked a clothesline as Jackson came back before running the ropes himself, coming back at meeting Jackson again, this time taking him down with a flying clothesline to a big pop. The crowd were cheering now as both men made their way back up with Taker on a mission, grabbing Jackson’s arm and sending him in to the corner, following in with a hard clothesline. He didn’t waste any time in repeating the attack after firing him across in to the opposite corner, only this time he turned back and ran the ropes to come charging back and send his huge boot down his opponent’s face to a huge roar inside the Allstate Arena.

DiBiase was shown panicking in the back as Taker stood back and allowed his squirming opponent to sit up and then stand up of his own accord while he lifted his right arm up in the air. The fans were cheering big time as Taker then jumped on Jackson, grabbing the rookie around the throat and sending him crashing in to the mat courtesy of a big chokeslam. The crowd were feeling it and Taker himself saw the end was near, then made the famous signal in dragging his arm across his throat to another massive pop. Jackson was brave and tried to sit back up, clearly not sure of where he was.

The Dead-Man gave him a help up to his feet and then scooped him up off the mat and over his shoulder for the Tombstone Piledriver. It was deafening in the arena, but the rookie wasn’t done and somehow countered, pulling back all the way to get Taker in place for the Tombstone. The crowd were stunned, as were JR & King, but Taker came back and reversed it again, this time hitting it and sending Jackson’s head down in to the mat to a huge pop. The Dead-Man crossed his opponent’s arms for the cover and stared straight ahead as the ref then counted to three, leading to the timekeeper ringing the bell with the fans on their feet cheering & applauding The Undertaker as he stood up looking down at Jackson, somewhat respectful of his efforts.

DiBiase was fuming in the back and stormed off from the monitor with a concerned Maryse following him. With his music playing again, Taker then dropped on to one knee and posed for the crowd as the lights went out with just one spotlight shining down on the phenom. Some boos could then be heard as we saw the pissed DiBiase walking out to the stage with Maryse following him. She managed to get in front of her irate boyfriend as Taker turned his head to see him there directing some trash talk at him, but Maryse managed to hold him back with the unimpressed Taker looking on as the show came to a close.

Winner: The Undertaker by pinfall.

>Breaking News: JBL To Miss Survivor Series?<

To update you on the events of Raw earlier this evening, after being chokeslammed on to the steel steps by The Big Show, John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield was taken to a local medical facility complaining of severe pain in his back.

We have now been advised that he has suffered an injury to his spine which we believe may well prevent him from competing at Survivor Series in two weeks, raising serious questions as to whether his Hell in a Cell Loser Leaves Ton match with The Big Show will go ahead. With so much riding on the outcome of that match, what will the implications of tonight’s events be?

When we have more information available, we update you here at WWE.com.
