Friday Night Smackdown ‘Live’
Friday 7th November 2008
Live from Rexall Place
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada




*Opening Video*
“If You Rock Like Me”



*Video Recap*
Last Week

“This Fire Burns”
is playing and the World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk is standing in the ring wearing one of his trademark T-shirts & trunks with his title draped over his shoulder. Behind him stand his Survivor Series team (Edge, Chris Jericho, Shelton Benjamin & Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez), all of whom are looking incredibly serious tonight, much like their captain who has a microphone in his possession as he looks in to the stands with his music coming to a halt, bringing out more boos from the capacity crowd.

CM Punk:
Seven days ago in this very ring the one an’ only John Cena stood here in front of his beloved fans t’ let us all know just who’d be on team Cena at Survivor Series, so t’night I thought I’d come out here an’ unveil my team, the men who nine nights from now will one by one eliminate and defeat team Cena. I have a team I know I can rely on, a team I know feel as strongly as I do, who all have one thing in common. . . well actually two. Unlike Cena’s team they actually have something t’ fight for, but mainly they all hate Cena an’ want him off of this show. See I could give you a one man show that’d go on all night on that subject alone but I thought I’d leave it to them to explain why it is they individually hate your beloved John Cena.

More boos ring out as Punk turns around and holds out the microphone for his rookie, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez. The Mexican steps forward dressed in a very nice suit to take possession of the microphone with Punk telling him to say whatever he likes with Edge, Jericho & Benjamin watching behind them.

Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez:
To make a name for yourself in Mexico you have t’ be a good wrestler and I’m sorry t’ say that John Cena is not a good wrestler or even close to being what you call a good wrestler. That is why I despise Cena, that and how you Americans for some reason treat him like he is some kind of superstar, but at Survivor Series you’ll see him for the loser that he is and he’ll no longer bring shame to the w-w-e and American wrestling.

Shelton Benjamin: There are plen’y of guys back there who are way more deserving than Cena, better than ‘im. F’ years I’ve had people in the locker room, at that announce desk, in the crowd an’ sat at home askin’ why Shelton Benjamin never reached out an’ grabbed that brass ring like he could an’ probably should ‘ave. I’ve had questions asked of me as t’ why with all the talent I’ve got I’ve not made that next step up the ladder. You wanna know why that is? It’s cause of John Cena, plain an’ simple.

Chris Jericho: There are many many reasons why I despise John Cena, some of which have already been mentioned, however as we speak there is one overriding reason, that being that at No Mercy he cost me the World Heavyweight Championship. What really angers me aside from the fact that he cost me my opportunity in a manner which he is unfamiliar with by actually earning the opportunity I was given is that he did so without any reason other than to make sure ev’ryone was talking about John Cena, and he succeeded. He had no right getting involved but he did, costing me the world title in the process. We will do ev’rything in our power to ensure that John Cena ends the year by becoming the World Heavyweight Champion, and when we are successful in our own plan this title shot that has been dangled like a carrot in his face will become available for somebody else, somebody deserving. Both myself and Edge have already spoken to our team captain who has assured us he will then have no problem whatsoever in allowing us to challenge him at Night of Champions like the fine competitor that he is.

Edge: First off I just wanna add t’ what Chris just said about the title shot he’s been promised. We’ve agreed with Punk that we’ll get a shot when we’re victorious at Survivor Series. I just want Tazz t’ be aware of that, but as far as this title shot is concerned that’s just been given t’ Cena on a plate f’ no other reason but f’ coming over here from Raw, that’s why right now I can’t wait t’ put a stop t’ this crap. Trust me I’ve hated Cena’s guts f’ a long time. It’s hardly a secret but I’ve grown t’ deal with it unlike these guys with all the blatant favouritism he gets, but t’ see him just leave Raw come t’ Smackdown an’ be given this shot f’ no reason whatsoever, it straight up stinks. I hate Cena an’ all that he stands for, make no mistake about that, but it doesn’t matter who he is, f’ anyone t’ be given a title shot just f’ switchin’ shows is a joke. Hell, even Christian deserves it more than he does, but y’know what? It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter ‘cause there’s no way in hell Cena’s gonna be needin’ that shot ‘cause he won’t be goin’ t’ Night of Champions period.

?: Alright I’ve heard enough.

Cheers break out as the Smackdown General Manager, Tazz walks out to the stage with a microphone of his own, not looking all that pleased, and neither are Team Punk in the ring as they all turn their attention to their boss.

Tazz:
Y’know, puttin’ all the sour grapes t’ one side I’m glad you all mean business ‘cause that’s all what this has ever been about, business. Just cause you guys might not see it, bringing Cena over here an’ givin’ him that incentive is good f’ business. Believe it or not, getting John Cena over here is great f’ this show. Our ratings are up an’ look at this huge main event we’ve got f’ Survivor Series. You guys are pumped an’ we’re gonna see an awesome match when you guys get it on with Team Cena, but right now I’m only concerned about the matches we’re gonna see t’night. . . Edge I just heard y’talkin’ bout Bobby Lashley an’ Charlie Haas, well you’re gonna find out how borin’ they are first hand, just like Punk an’ Alberto did when they lost t’ them last week when you team up with Chris Jericho t’ represent both Canada an’ team Punk later on t’night.

*Big Pop*

Tazz: Well that’s you two taken care of, now that brings me t’ you Punk. Last week you an’ your rookie there lost t’ Lashley an’ Haas but I’m gonna give y’both the chance t’ make up f’ it when y’take on the team of Christian an’ the King of the Ring Matt Sydal.

*Big Cheer*

Punk & Del Rio-Ramirez both look more than comfortable with that as they look up at Tazz.


Tazz:
Oh I’m not done champ ‘cause there’s one of your guys left, that bein’ The Gold Standard Shelton Benjamin. Now I don’t know if you saw it but last week right here on Smackdown like you might’ve heard, he beat John Cena. There were of course some dubious circumstances they f’got t’ mention which is why right here in our main event we’re gonna have a rematch of last week’s main event between Shelton Benjamin, an’ John CE-NA.

*Massive Pop*

Tazz: Well good luck t’night guys. By the end of the night y’might just find out that team Cena might ‘ave a lot more fight in ‘em than y’think.

“13” plays with the fans cheering as Tazz looks down at team Punk who are all still looking very focused in the ring talking amongst themselves apart from Punk who looks back up at Tazz quite smugly, not showing any concern or anger towards the General Manager whatsoever.

Christian & Matt Sydal w/Mickie James
vs. CM Punk & Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez

Punk taunted Christian as he stood up and said it was time for him to go to sleep. He dragged him up once again as Del Rio-Ramirez also stood up by the apron. The World Champion lifted him Christian up on to his shoulders, but the Canadian fought it, wriggling away on his shoulders and slid to safety down his back to push Punk right in the direction of his rookie. Punk put the brakes on and just avoided the collision with the Mexican, both breathing a sigh of relief. The ref though wanted Del Rio-Ramirez out of there and went over to try and do so. The rookie didn’t want to go easy and a chorus of boos broke out.

Punk turned round and ran at Christian who kicked him in the gut and set him up for the Killswitch, just as Edge slid in the ring after charging down the ramp. Christian couldn’t believe it and let go of Punk, but Edge charged at him and took him down with a thunderous spear. The ref was dealing with Del Rio-Ramirez and didn’t see it. Sydal did though and he turned the boos in to cheers as he stormed the ring and ran right at Edge, but Punk cut him off, nailing with him a roundhouse kick as Ede then made his escape route.

The boos rang out again as Punk dropped to cover Christian while his rookie left the ring, allowing the ref to make the count. Christian couldn’t kick out and Punk picked up the controversial win for him & Del Rio-Ramirez. The Rated-R Superstar backed away smirking as the smug World Champion stood up and nodded at him before getting his arm raised with his rookie to a ton of heat. They turned round and smiled back at Edge as “This Fire Burns” continued to play with Mickie checking on Sydal as both he & Christian started to come round, and Christian was fuming, glaring right in his remorseless brother’s direction with Punk & Del Rio-Ramirez smirking back too.


***

Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas
vs. Edge & Chris Jericho

Haas ducked a wild right and caught Jericho after they picked their way back up with a bridging german suplex. Again Jericho kicked out, and as they got back up to their feet Haas went for an Olympic Slam. Jericho though jumped back to land on his feet, and as Haas turned round he swept his feet and tried to apply the Walls of Jericho. Haas though blocked it and pushed at him with his feet, forcing Jericho back in to the ropes, and as he came back, Haas leaned up and pulled him in to an inside cradle.

The fans were cheering but were left disappointed as Jericho again kicked out. As they both then rushed back up, Haas ran back in to the ropes but Jericho jumped up and nailed him as he came back with a devastating enzuigiri. Jericho scurried across on his knees to make the cover but this time it was Haas that kicked out to piss him off again. He blew his top at the referee and was adamant it should’ve been three but the ref stood his ground as the frustrated Jericho got in his face.

A cheer broke out in the crowd and we saw Christian charging down the ramp with a face like thunder. He pulled the unsuspecting Edge down off the apron and nailed him with a right hand before firing him in to the security wall to a big pop. The Rated-R Superstar tried to climb over it and escape to safety but Captain Charisma went in pursuit through the crowd as they continued to cheer. The confused Jericho turned round and saw his partner gone as Haas crawled to his corner and tagged Lashley.

Jericho walked to the apron and watched Edge & Christian fighting their way through the crowd, unaware that Lashley had entered the ring and was getting ready to strike with the fans cheering him on. As Jericho then turned round and walked away from the ropes. Lashley exploded out of the corner and tore him in half with a spear and it was enough to earn the win for him & Haas, another huge victory for them as their roll on Friday nights continues.


***

John Cena vs. Shelton Benjamin

As Shelton looked to repeat his victory of last week, the World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk and his rookie, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez came out to watch their Survivor Series team mate from the announce table, not going down well with Cena.

Even Cena was somewhat surprised by his opponent’s resiliency, looking confused at what he had to do to put him away, and as Shelton pulled himself up by the ropes, Cena went right after him. He lifted him up on to his shoulders but Shelton held on to the top rope with one hand and swung his elbow back in to the side of Cena’s head, fighting his way down to his feet and then nailing a dragon whip to send Cena down. They were both back up in a flash and Benjamin fired Cena in to the corner before running in for a stinger splash. He back tracked out of the corner as Cena then staggered out in to his path and a samoan drop.

Punk was impressed but Shelton seemingly wasn’t. He didn’t go for the cover and immediately returned to his feet, retreating to the corner with his eyes locked on the squirming Cena. Benjamin was focused, so intense as he watched Cena’s every move, and as he clawed his way back up, Shelton looked to pounce, running right at him for the Paydirt. Cena though reacted in a split second and ducked his head to lift Shelton up on to his shoulders to a big pop. He didn’t waste a second and sent him crashing in to the canvas with the F-U. The fans barely had chance to cheer as Cena then turned Benjamin over on to his back and applied the STFU to an even bigger pop.

They were cheering like crazy as Shelton desperately tried to hold on with Cena cranking up the pressure, but The Gold Standard tried to fight it again, holding up his right hand and trying to reach out. It was hopeless though and this time he couldn’t escape with Cena forcing him to tap out after a brave effort. By the time Cena stood up to get his arm raised with “My Time is Now” playing, Del Rio-Ramirez sneaked his way in to the ring behind him and took him down with a shoulder barge. The fans booed and the music cut as the Mexican put the boots to Cena with Punk calmly removing his headset at the announce table to join his rookie in the ring.

The boos continued as Punk entered the ring and dropped his title belt before instructing Del Rio-Ramirez to back off. The World Champion coolly walked over to his rival and helped him up from his knees and lifted him up on to his shoulders, then hit him with the GTS to a ton of heat and a few cheers mixed in. Punk stood up with a big smirk on his face, his rookie also smiling at the sight of Cena down & out as Benjamin sat up. Punk then went to help up Shelton as cheers broke out and Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas charged down the ramp.

Punk, Del Rio-Ramirez & Shelton turned at the right time to see them coming and made their quick exit with The Straight-Edge Superstar grabbing his title before slipping out of the ring. The angry duo of Lashley & Haas slid in the ring to see them off, glaring at them as they back tracked up the ramp staring right back at them as Cena started to come round. “This Fire Burns” hit and the smug Punk raised his title up in the air with the Team Cena members and the man himself furiously staring right at him as the show came to a close.

Michael Cole:
Good evening ev’ryone an’ welcome to Friday Night Smackdown where we’re just two nights away from the Survivor Series. We’re live t’night from Edmonton Alberta Canada an’ what a show we have in store. . . Just forty-eight hours away from Survivor Series, right here t’night, Shawn Michaels will go one on one with The Miz, and in addition t’ that, Christian who will be part of Team Cena on Sunday will meet a member of Team Punk, Chris Jericho in a lumberjack match with all members of both Teams Cena & Punk surrounding the ring. It’s going to be an action packed show t’night, that’s f’ sure.

Matt Striker: Absolutely, however that’s not all we’re going to see. The two men at the centre of this Sunday’s main event will meet in that ring in front of us later on in a face-off. I can’t begin to imagine what’s going t’ happen when both John Cena an’ C-M Punk go face to face.

Michael Cole: You’re not alone there Matt. C-M Punk’s never been shy of shouting his mouth off, especially since John Cena came to Smackdown from Raw. Personally there’s something else I can’t wait t’ see t’night when J-Red goes up against his now former mentor, Chavo Guerrero. Given their hist’ry in Red’s relatively short time here, these two have had issues. . . serious issues in fact, an’ t’night they’re going t’ get the chance to work things out the old fashioned way. . . in the squared circle.

Matt Striker: Not for the first time either. What’s key here Michael is that Red has always come out on top, and that grates Chavo, so much so he cost his former rookie the chance to become the new Cruiserweight Champion two weeks ago. We’re in for quite the contest later on I assure you of that.

Michael Cole: Well speaking of the Cruiserweight Championship, Red was last week promised a rematch very soon against Johnny Jeter who we’re about t’ see take on who is now his former rookie, Yoshi Tatsu.


*Video Recap*
Last Week!

Non-Title Match
Winner Joins Team Smackdown for the Survivor Series
Santino Marella
vs. Johnny Jeter w/Yoshi Tatsu

M.V.P. & Killings came out to watch as Santino & Jeter battled it out in what was a very aggressive contest with the last place on Team Smackdown at stake.

As Santino made it up, Jeter ran in and connected with a clothesline, but as he then tried to whip his opponent in to the opposite corner, Santino reversed it and sent Jeter crashing right in to the referee, sending both men down. Santino was stunned and didn’t know what to do, looking down in guilt at the referee as the groggy Jeter made it up to his knees. The Italian went back to work and looked to pull Jeter up, only for the Cruiserweight Champion to low blow him to a ton of heat with the ref still down & out, barely coming round.

Jeter sat up to a chorus of boos and then looked round, still angry and then yelled at Yoshi on the outside, pointing towards the timekeeper’s table, shouting at him to get the belt. The rookie didn’t look happy at all but did as he was asked, grabbing the cruiserweight title. He looked at it and thought twice, looking in to the crowd who were shouting at him not to give it to his mentor. Jeter was getting even more agitated and stood up before again yelling at Yoshi to give it him. Reluctantly he walked over to the apron and slid it under the bottom rope as Santino sat up behind him, still suffering from the low blow.

Jeter shook his head angrily at his rookie as he walked over to pick up the belt, and as he then turned round he set his sights on the unwitting Italian who got to his knees with the crowd trying to warn him. The ref had his back to the action as he came round, lifting his head up off the mat with the lights slowly coming back on for him. Yoshi didn’t look comfortable at all, shaking his head too and he slipped in to the ring. It was met with cheers as he walked up behind his mentor and grabbed the belt to a big pop. Jeter was stunned and shouted at him to let go. They fought over it with the rookie winning the battle, resulting in a right hand from Jeter that put his rookie on the mat.

He kneeled down and gave him an earful of abuse before picking his title back up, but as he turned round and walked over to Santino, the Italian reached up and rolled him up in to an inside cradle. Jeter dropped the title and the ref shimmied round to count the fall, counting to three to a huge pop. Jeter then sat up in shock, as did Santino as he was announced the winner. Santino was smiling as it sunk in while both Yoshi and the ref shook off the cobwebs as Jeter glared angrily in to the crowd, stunned. He then stood up in a huff and walked over to the apron as Yoshi made it to his feet, and the Cruiserweight Champion called for a microphone, getting one from Justin Roberts as Santino’s music was then cut.

Johnny Jeter: Hey, don’t y’go anywhere you ungrateful son of a bitch.

Santino & Yoshi both turn around curiously as the pissed Jeter glares right at them holding the microphone and his cruiserweight title in the other.

Johnny Jeter:
Have you got any idea what you’ve just done, how stupid you just made me look? That’s what I get f’ all the help you’ve got from me? Well if y’think I’m gonna help you out anymore y’can f’get it. I’m done with you. Go find y’self another mentor, but let me tell y’somethin’, you ain’t ever gonna make it ‘cause you’re nothin’, now get outta my way.

Jeter drops the microphone and barges past them to leave the ring as a ton of boos break out. The camera goes back to the ring where Raw’s Sheamus slides in the ring having jumped the security wall, totally oblivious to Santino & Yoshi Tatsu, M.V.P. & Killings panic and charge down the ramp as Team Raw’s captain charges at the curious Santino who turns round in to a ferocious Brogue Kick. The Intercontinental Champion sees them coming and flees the ring and jumps back in to the crowd with the angry M.V.P. & Killings reaching ringside as Yoshi looks on in shock from the ring and then checks on Santino while M.V.P. & Killings stare angrily at the highly amused Irishman laughing back at them.

***

Still pissed off from before the break, Johnny Jeter is pacing through the back, turning a corner and walking right in to the path of the General Manager, Tazz, and he too doesn’t look happy at all.

Tazz:
Great, just the man I was after.

Johnny Jeter: Yeah and?

Tazz: Man you’ve got some attitude kid but y’know what? I think y’probably did the right thing, not f’ you but f’ Yoshi. I ain’t exactly happy ‘bout how it came about. . .

Johnny Jeter: . . . Who cares? What’s done’s done, just like we are now.

Jeter tries to walk past his boss but Tazz outs his had out and stops him in his tracks, not going down well with the Cruiserweight Champion.

Johnny Jeter:
What the hell are you doin’?

Tazz: What am I doin’?

Tazz lets go and they stare right at each other.

Tazz:
I’ll tell y’what I’m doin’. I’m gonna make a match f’ next week, an’ y’wanna know who you’re gonna be facin’?. . . Yoshi Tatsu.

Jeter laughs, clearly not at all bothered by Tazz’s decision. A livid J-Red storms in to the shot, getting the attention of Tazz as well as Jeter who turns around with Red glaring right at the champion who was lucky to hold on to his title against him last week.

Tazz:
Look I don’t want any trouble.

Johnny Jeter: Don’t worry, you’re not gonna get any from me boss. (Turns to Red) How y’doin’ man? Where’s Chavo? Tell ‘im thanks f’ last week when y’see ‘im will ya?

Red bites his lip, eyes locked on the smug Jeter with Tazz turning to the Cruiserweight Champion.

J-Red:
I’m not here t’ talk about you but don’t think I’ve f’get about last week.

Red turns his attention to Tazz.

J-Red:
Is it true, y’told Chavo t’ stay home t’night.

Tazz: As a matter o’fact it is, an’ lookin’ at it’s probably a good thing I did, but don’t worry, I ain’t gonna let ‘im get away with what he did last week. You’re gonna get another shot at the title.

Tazz turns to Jeter with Jeter’s smile going.

Johnny Jeter:
What? I don’t think so. He had his chance.

Tazz: Yeah he had his chance an’ you’re damn lucky you’ve still got it, (turns back to Red) which is why next week dog you’ve got a match wi’ Chavo, and y’don’t have t’ worry ‘bout him bein’ your mentor anymore. I’ve seen enough from you t’ offer you a full time contract here on Smackdown.

Jeter doesn’t look happy as Red steps forward and looks right at him.

J-Red:
When I’m done wi’ Chavo, I’m comin’ after you, an’ next time you’re not gonna be so lucky champ.

Red gives Jeter the eyes, and the Cruiserweight Champion isn’t so cocky now, looking a bit concerned as Red & Tazz walk off down the hall.


*Cut to the Arena*


*The Opening Match*
Non-Title Match
Yoshi Tatsu vs. Johnny Jeter


The cocky Cruiserweight Champion entered the ring looking very relaxed, too relaxed in fact, and his former rookie sure meant business and was out to make an impression against his former mentor. Tatsu surprised everyone, especially Jeter who came back fighting angrily. When Tatsu went looking for a cyclone DDT, Jeter threw him off the ropes and down to the mat, then followed it up with a super kick. To his surprise Yoshi got his shoulder up at two.

The Japanese rookie wasn’t done though, and when Jeter went for a springboard moonsault, he lifted his knees up in to the Cruiserweight Champion’s gut. As both men made their way back up, Tatsu ducked a wild right and came close with a two count after a bridging german suplex. Jeter fought out of it and survived a shoot kick to the face, getting his foot on the rope to leave Yoshi devastated.

As the rookie then tried to seal the deal, the Cruiserweight Champion levelled him with the Genesis Kick after Yoshi had come off the ropes for a springboard. The mean looking Jeter wasted no time in going for the cover, giving the fans in front of him a stern look as the ref counted to three, and after getting his title passed to him and his hand raised, he pulled his arm back and went over to the apron to get his hands on a microphone, bringing his music to a quick halt.

Winner: Johnny Jeter by pinfall.

Johnny Jeter: You enjoy that ‘cause I sure did?

*Heat*

Johnny Jeter: I’m sure there’s a couple o’guys back there just like you losers who ain’t happy either, well I’m sorry t’ disappoint y’boss but there wasn’t a hope in hell I was gonna lose t’ this joker t’night. An’ as f’ you Red, I know you’re watchin’ too, but any ideas you’ve got o’takin’ this title from me, y’can f’get it. It doesn’t matter what you do against Chavo t’night, this title’s stayin’ where it is an’ y’better believe it bitch.

“Time to Shine” plays again and Jeter drops the microphone, still looking very smug as he walks over to the ropes and leaves the ring. Yoshi sits up, groggy as Jeter heads up the ramp smirking at the fans who are throwing some insults his way, not that he cares the slightest bit.


*Cut Backstage*


Josh Matthews is standing by at the interview set.

Josh Matthews:
Ladies an’ gentleman please welcome my guests at this time, the w-w-e tag team champions, Harry Smith an’ Paul Burchill, The U-K Pack.

The camera zooms out and standing there are Paul Burchill & Harry Smith. The Tag Team Champions are joined by Smith’s rookie, TJ Wilson and Wilson’s girlfriend & Smith’s cousin, Natalya Neidhart. The champs are dressed casually and have their titles draped over their shoulders, not in the best of the moods by any means.

Josh Matthews:
Guys I don’t know if you’re aware but the word is The Empire aren’t very happy t’ say the least with what happened last week and are looking for some kind of retribution here t’night.

Harry Smith: Yeah we’ve heard that but we’re not worried Josh. We know how t’ deal with people like that. They’re nothing but cowards. They’re all talk. What they said about us a few weeks ago, calling us bad role models an’ talking about how we conduct ourselves after ev’rything they’ve done, well they’re the biggest hypocrites I’ve had the misfortune to come across my entire life. They can talk all they want about how they’re on this mission or whatever it is they want t’ call it, but the fact is they’re doing ev’rything they claim t’ despise about Americans. If they’re looking f’ revenge, retribution or whatever they want t’ call it t’night, that’s fine by us. We’re more than ready for them. We’re not going t’ shy away from them like they want people t’ think. See we know that there are plenty of fans back in the U-K an’ America that don’t share their ridiculous opinions, an’ just like they pointed out a few weeks ago, I’m half Canadian, an’ while we’ve been here the last few days, I know we’ve got fans here too who are happy with us being champions.

Burchill leans across and asks for the microphone, and Smith happily hands it over to him.

Paul Burchill:
Sorry Harry but there’s something I’d like to get off my chest too. . . What those hypocrites might not have realised Josh is that they’ve made us stronger. I think ev’rybody knows we’ve had our differences recently, but now we’re both focused on the same thing, and that’s shutting their mouths. Like Harry said, if they want revenge t’night we’ve got a match out there later on if they want t’ find us. We won’t be going anywhere, and if you see them, you can tell them that.

Burchill & Smith stare in to the camera for a couple of seconds and then coolly turn around and walk out of the shot.


*Commercial Break*


We’re taken to the parking lot where Team Raw (Sheamus, John Morrison, Carlito, Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig) stand shaking their heads, not happy.

Sheamus:
What a surprise. We should o’known dis would happen. It goes t’ show just how scared dey are of us but dey can’t hide from us Sunday at Survivor Series, an’ after dis stunt t’night, dey’ve just made t’ings a whole lot worse for demselves.

?: HEY.

The Smackdown General Manager, Tazz walks out in to the shot and towards Team Raw.

Tazz:
Sorry ‘bout all this guys. There’s been some kind o’mix up. Y’ can go on in. My apologies.

Sheamus: Well fella, I’m glad you’ve got de guts t’ come out an’ face us.

Tazz: Like I said dog, just a mix up. In fact we’ve been expectin’ ya, an’ I’ve made a special match for ya t’ mark the match at Survivor Series between you guys an’ my guys. We’re gonna have ourselves a special Raw versus Smackdown ten man battle royal, an’ kind o’like Survivor Series, it’ll be the last man, or men an’ last team standing that wins.

Sheamus: Y’know dat’s a good idea fella, but just like Sunday, we’re gonna beat ya an’ embarrass ya.

Tazz: Well I guess we’ll just see about that won’t we fella?

Sheamus: Dare’s no guess work about it. It’s obvious. If y’don’t see it yet, y’soon will. Come on fellas. Let’s go do dis.

Tazz steps aside and ushers them in to the arena, and they’re all smiles now are Team Raw with Tazz looking very confident indeed.


*Cut to the Arena*


“You’re not enough for me. . .”

A chorus of boos breaks out as the number one contender for the Diva’s Championship, Michelle McCool strolls out to the stage in her ring gear looking very smug with her rookies, Alicia Fox & Rosa Mendes standing either side of her. They make their way down the ramp shrugging off the boos & jeers from the crowd as they enter the ring with McCool walking over to the opposite side to demand a microphone, getting one and the music grinds to a halt. She joins her rookies back in the centre of the ring with the fans still booing the number one contender.

Michelle McCool:
Y’know it’s hard t’ believe that when I said last week I’m soon gonna be the new Diva’s Champion, not ev’ryone believed me. Now I know you Canadians aren’t exactly the most intelligent people in the world. . .

*Heat*

Michelle McCool: . . . it’s the truth, we all know it. . . Anyway as I was saying, there are some people back there who don’t believe I can beat Beth Phoenix, but y’couldn’t be more wrong. I know I can beat her, mark my words. Y’all can underestimate me all y’want, but as impossible as it may sound, y’all are gonna look even more stupid when I beat her an’ become the new Diva’s Champion.

*More Boos*

Michelle McCool: An’ just t’ prove y’all wrong, I’m out here t’night to challenge any diva in the locker room to a match right now, preferably one of those who doesn’t think I can beat Beth.

McCool turns round, as do her rookies, all looking up at the stage incredibly confident, cocky even.

“Glamazon”

The Diva’s Champion, Beth Phoenix walks out to the stage to a pretty big pop along with her Nikki Roxx, her rookie. McCool and her rookies look up at her, stunned to see The Glamazon & Roxx making their way down to the ring, joining them. Roxx smirks at the confused McCool as Beth walks past her, also smirking as she collects a microphone of her own.

Michelle McCool:
What the hell are you doing out here?

Beth Phoenix: Well unless I’m mistaken, you just challenged any diva to a match t’night or have I got that wrong?

Michelle McCool: Well err. . . that’s not what I meant.

Beth Phoenix: It sounded pretty clear to us didn’t it Nikki? I mean I am a diva after all. I have the diva’s title you’ve talked about so much here too t’ prove it. I don’t see your problem. . . well, unless your scared that is?

Michelle McCool: Scared? No, you’ve got that wrong.

Beth Phoenix: Really? I don’t know. I can’t think of any other explanation. What do you think Canada? Is she scared?

*Huge Cheer*

Beth Phoenix: I think they agree with me Michelle.

Michelle McCool: Well I’m not. It’s just. . .

Beth Phoenix: It’s just what? What is it Michelle?

Michelle McCool: What I meant was any diva to get ready for my match with you for the diva’s title.

Beth Phoenix: Oh okay, I get it, but why didn’t you just say that in the first place?

Michelle McCool: Does it matter?

Beth Phoenix: Yeah I think it kinda does.

Michelle McCool: Well f’ a start, it wouldn’t be fair t’ spoil our title match would it for all the fans? I mean, they wouldn’t care as much if we have a match before the important one when the title’s at stake.

Beth Phoenix: Really? Since when have you cared about the fans? You were only insulting them a few minutes ago. I think you’re clutching at straws an’ you know it.

Michelle McCool: You can think whatever you want Beth, I don’t care. All I care about is when me an’ you do get it on, I will beat you, but that ain’t gonna be t’night y’hear?

McCool walks past Beth & Roxx, still holding the microphone, followed by Fox & Mendes.

Beth Phoenix:
Wait, where are you going?

Still clearly frustrated, McCool turns round and looks right at the amused mentor & rookie combination.

Michelle McCool:
I’m getting out of here, what does it look like? I’ve had enough of this dump.

*Major Heat*

Michelle McCool: I’ll face you in my own time Beth. It’s not up t’ you, but mark my words, it’ll be sometime soon. An’ when I do, I will beat you an’ you won’t be laughin’ then.

“Glamazon” plays again and McCool steps through the ropes glaring angrily at Beth, still smiling, joking with Roxx as the angry McCool, Fox & Mendes head back up the ramp, absolutely furious.

Walking with purpose, Team Smackdown, Ron Killings, Paul London, Brian Kendrick & Santino Marella, led by their captain M.V.P. make their way through the halls of the arena, headed for the ring and the Battle of the Brands Battle Royal against Team Raw.


*Commercial Break*


*Match #2*
Battle of the Brands Battle Royal
Team Smackdown (M.V.P., Ron Killings, Paul London, Brian Kendrick & Santino Marella)
vs. Team Raw (Sheamus, John Morrison, Carlito, Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig)


The two teams went at it furiously from the moment the bell went, and it was Team Raw that got off to a flyer when an almighty Brogue Kick sent Santino over the top and down to the floor. London was next to bite the bullet when having connected with a dropsault on Sheamus, Cody snuck up behind him and tossed him over the ropes. Smackdown came back at their counterparts though with Morrison paying the price for going for a springboard enzuigiri.

Killings caught him with a dropkick to send him down to the floor and Hennig was next to bite the bullet when he ran at M.V.P. trying to clothesline him over the top only for Smackdown’s captain to lift him over his shoulder and over the ropes all the way down to the floor. Unfortunately for Team Smackdown, they were the ones who lost a member next when Kendrick was about to hit the Sliced Bread on Sheamus, but the Intercontinental Champion countered by throwing him down to the floor.

It was down to M.V.P. & Killings and they fought like mad, turning the tables on Team Raw by eliminating Cody after a jumping corkscrew elbow smash from Killings with M.V.P. then tossing him over the ropes and out of the match. Next to go was Carlito after Sheamus accidentally caught him with a clothesline. M.V.P. then took Sheamus down from behind with a bulldog as Killings clotheslined Carlito over the top as he picked himself back up. Raw’s hopes were left with their captain and the Intercontinental Champion took it right to M.V.P. & Killings.

He sent Killings packing when The Truth was standing back up on the apron, accidentally nailing him with a Brogue Kick after M.V.P. ducked it. As Killings hit the floor, M.V.P. lifted him up off his feet and over the ropes, winning the match for Team Smackdown. Sheamus couldn’t believe it as he sat up on the outside. The rest of Team Smackdown aside from Killings on the floor joined their team captain in the ring with The Celtic Warrior staring up at them in disbelief, much to the satisfaction of M.V.P. who took great pleasure in winding him up.

Winners: Team Smackdown.

We’re taken to the locker room of the World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk where he stands with his team, Edge, Chris Jericho, Shelton Benjamin & Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez. Punk’s in jeans and a T-shirt and his world title is displayed on the bench behind him as he addresses his team with only Jericho in his ring gear. All of them are looking very serious and listen to Punk.

CM Punk:
Look guys, you know I’ve got this whole face-off thing with Cena t’night, an’ don’t worry, I know you won’t want me t’ hold back an’ I promise you won’t be disappointed. I’m gonna tell it exactly how it is even if some people don’t like it, not that I could care less. This is my chance t’ make a stand an’ I’m trustin’ you guys t’ take care of the lumberjack match without me. You don’t need me out there. I know you’ll get the job done just like we will Sunday, then we won’t have t’ worry about John Cena anymore.

Edge: Damn right.

Chris Jericho: I’d just like t’ say that as much as I’d like to put Cena in his place, I like all of us trust you to take care of that side of things, and like you said we’ll comfortably take care of Christian and whoever else wants to get involved.

Edge: He’s right Punk. You let Cena have it an’ we’ll sure as hell let Christian an’ the rest of Team Cena have it, then finish the job at Survivor Series. Man that’s gonna be sweet.

CM Punk: It sure it is but we can’t go counting our chickens yet. Sure we can get the job done, but with Cena you can’t get carried away before it’s in the bag. I know we can do it and I believe in each one of you t’ make sure that we do. That’s why I’m gonna stay back here f’ the lumberjack match t’ let ev’ryone else see that I trust you guys like I’m trusting you Sunday.

Edge: No problem.

Chris Jericho: Absolutely. You just concentrate on letting the world know exactly what we all think of Cena.

CM Punk: You really don’t have to worry about that. No one’ll be left without any doubt just how much we hate John Cena. I promise you that.

Punk smirks and the camera zooms in on him.

We’re shown a split screen of J-Red & Chavo Guerrero, both looking incredibly focused as they head through the back with the former rookie & mentor match coming up next.


*Commercial Break*


*Video Recap*
2 Weeks Ago!

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.


***

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.


*Cut to the Arena*


*Match #3*
J-Red vs. Chavo Guerrero


Both men were fired up for this one, especially Red and he was gunning for his former mentor, and just before the match started, Michael Cole announced that Tazz had made Red’s Cruiserweight Championship rematch with Johnny Jeter for next week. Red started the match the brighter but Chavo was bang up for this one too, looking to get one over on his former rookie. After seizing control of the match in the closing minutes, it looked like he had the match won after a brainbuster, only for Red to get his foot on the rope before the ref could count to three.

Chavo wasn’t happy and dragged him up off the mat for the Three Amigo’s, connecting with all three of them, but as he hit the top rope for the Frog Splash, Red rolled to safety at the last second to the relief of the pumped up Canadian crowd. As both men made their way up to their feet, it looked like Red was about to take control, but after hitting Chavo with a series of stiff kicks, he ran back in to the ropes only for Chavo to come back fighting with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker.

Red bravely got his shoulder up again, leaving Chavo fuming, who after a brief strop pulled him back up for another brainbuster. Red though slid to safety and rolled Chavo up, but Chavo kicked out at two. Both men made it back up as quickly as they could, and it was Chavo who was up first. He fired Red in to the ropes, but he came back with a baseball slide, and as he raced back up, he nailed Chavo with an enzuigiri. Chavo’s lights were out but the battle scarred Red didn’t go for the cover and crawled across to the apron, getting his breath back and shaking off the cobwebs.

Chavo started to come round as Red then slid under the ropes on to the apron, eyes locked intently on his bitter nemesis as he struggled up on to his knees. As Chavo managed to claw his way up and then turned round, Red hit a springboard and connected with the Red Alert, a diving swinging reverse STO to a big roar from the Edmonton fans. They cheered even louder as Red hooked the legs and picked up the win, a big win heading in to his title match with Jeter next week.

However before he could celebrate he was jumped by Jeter, who clubbed him down to the mat before whipping him in to the ropes and nailing him with the Genesis Kick to a ton of heat. Jeter sat up and just stared over angrily at the challenger to his title. He then stood back up and picked up his title, then lifted it up above his head, standing right by Red as his music then to even more heat. Jeter turned his head towards the fans with a smug look of satisfaction on his face before leaving the ring with the fans jeering him back up the ramp as the groggy Red came round, not too sure what just happened.

Winner: J-Red by pinfall.


*Cut Backstage*


A very excited looking Mickie James is walking through the back with Layla.

Mickie James:
I’m so excited. I mean this is the moment we’ve been waiting for since we were little girls right.

Layla: All we’re going t’ do is try on some dresses.

Mickie stops, looking utterly shocked.

Mickie James:
Seriously?

Layla: No, I can’t wait.

Mickie grabs Layla and hugs her, quickly pulling away.

Mickie James:
Thank god, I thought you were being serious. Now how many dresses have we got t’ try on?

Layla: Three, four maybe. They’re waiting for us at the hotel.

The ever glamorous, or not ODB appears in the shot swigging from her flask.

ODB:
My god, dresses suck. Grow a pair.

Layla & Mickie turn round, not at all pleased to see ODB standing there.

Layla:
You’ve got t’ be kidding me. Not her again.

Mickie James: Y’know Lay, Matt told me she kissed Cena last week.

Layla: No? Poor guy.

ODB: Er, what’s that supposed t’ mean?

Layla: It means I feel sorry for him. I mean who’d want that?

ODB gets right in her face, looking very menacing, clearly intimidating Layla.

ODB:
We can’t all be little girly girls like you.

Mickie James: HEY.

Mickie grabs ODB’s arm and pulls her away from Layla, not going down well with ODB at all.

ODB:
This ain’t your fight. Touch me again you little bitch an' I’ll knock all that make-up off y’face.

Mickie James: You’re picking a fight with my friend, so yeah it kind of is.

ODB: Well since you want it that way. . .

ODB grabs Mickie and sends her crashing in to the wall, catching Layla well & truly by surprise. ODB turns round and grabs her, pushing her up against the opposite wall with Mickie down on the floor.

Layla:
Get off me.

ODB: Oh I wouldn’t get angry if I were you. Just look at y’friend if y’don’t believe me.

ODB lets go and smirks sadistically as Layla breathes a sigh of relief. ODB then takes a swig from her flask and walks off laughing as Layla now kneels down to check on Mickie who sits up angrily, staring in ODB’s direction.

Ready for action, the fired-up WWE Tag Team Champions, The UK Pack along with TJ Wilson & Natalya Neidhart are shown making their way through the back for their match coming up next.


*Commercial Break*


*Match #4*
Non-Title Match
The UK Pack w/TJ Wilson & Natalya Neidhart
vs. The Pitbulls


Smith & Burchill certainly looked like they’d put their problems behind them and they were mighty impressive against stubborn opposition in The Pitbulls. Noble & Kash didn’t make life easy for them whatsoever, but the champions’ showed exactly why they’ve held the titles for the best part of 12 months. Just as things were looking difficult for them when Noble caught Smith square in the face with a swiped boot followed up with a swinging neckbreaker, Smith quickly found himself in the Camel Clutch, but he powered & fought his way out of it.

He made it up to his feet to the shock of Noble who quickly found himself rammed back in to the turnbuckle pads. Noble wasn’t done either and ran out at Smith as both recovered, but Smith caught him with a spinning powerslam. Noble kicked out at two but soon found himself in deep trouble with the blood rushing to his head courtesy of a delayed vertical suplex. Smith sent him crashing in to the canvas and didn’t wait around in trying to finish the job, picking him right back up and setting him up for the running powerslam. Kash though tried to help his partner out and save the match for him & Noble.

Smith let go of Noble as Kash came running at him, right in to a clothesline and then another to send him over the top rope. Noble looked to take advantage of the distraction as Smith turned round by charging right at him. Smith reacted in a flash and ducked underneath the outstretched arm before scooping him up off his feet and on to his shoulder. The fans were cheering as the steely Brit then ran across the ring and planted him with the deadly powerslam to get the win for him & Burchill. They couldn’t enjoy it though as The Empire stormed the ring before the bell rang, attacking Wilson on the outside and sending him crashing in to the steps before hitting the ring to attack the champions.

Wade Barrett, Drew McIntyre & William Regal double teamed them as Katie Lee also attacked Natalya Neidhart on the outside. The Empire quickly wore them down, and after McIntyre drilled Barrett with the Future-Shock DDT, they focused on Smith with Barrett hitting the Wasteland on him. They weren’t done there however as Regal applied the Regal Stretch on him and Barrett ordered Katie to get them a chair, which she did and slid it in to the ring. Barrett took ownership of it and stood menacingly over Smith, and then lifted it up high above his head before striking it against Smith’s left ankle to a ton of heat.

Barrett wasn’t done there and hit him three more times before Burchill came round and scurried across on his knees to check on his partner. The trio laughed amongst themselves before leaving the ring with Katie, and EMT’s quickly made their way past them on the ramp, attending to Smith who was screaming in pain trying to hold his ankle with Burchill livid. He stood up and glared right at them, strongly warning The Empire who watched on from the ramp without any remorse whatsoever. Burchill then went back to his partner as EMT’s continued to attend to him.

Winners: The UK Pack by pinfall.


*Cut Backstage*


We’re taken to the locker room again where Team Cena are gathered as Christian puts on his elbow pads while John Cena prepares to address his team, Matt Sydal, Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas. All of them are looking right at Cena as Captain Charisma continues getting ready, and you can hear a pin drop in there.

John Cena:
Hey look, we all know what to expect t’night. Punk’s gonna run his mouth but I don’t want you guys t’ worry about that. Let me worry ‘bout what Punk’s gotta say ‘cause it won’t have a thing t’ do with any of you. What we all need t’ be ready for is whatever they’ve got planned f’ the lumberjack match. Y’ know they’re sneaky as hell an’ we’ve gotta be ready f’ that. One thing I do wanna say t’ you guys though is that they’ve said some things about you not havin’ anything t’ fight for, but I know that’s not how you feel an’ we need t’ f’get about Survivor Series right now ‘cause the fight starts t’night. They’re gonna make things as difficult as possible an’ we’re gonna need eyes in the back of our heads at all times.

Cena turns to Christian who’s clearly fired up for his match with Jericho.

John Cena:
C’, you can beat Jericho t’night, y’know that. Good luck.

Christian: Trust me, I don’t need luck. All I need is t’ get in that ring, f’get all the talkin’, get my hands on Jericho an’ beat the hell out of ‘im.

John Cena: The time f’ talk’s almost over man I promise. Sunday night, we do what we do best. Y’ll ready?

Sydal nods his head and so does Haas.

Bobby Lashley:
You can count on it.

John Cena: Great, then let’s go do this.

Cena goes to the door and holds it open as one by one they leave the room, Christian last as he stops & looks at Cena for a second before walking out, followed by Cena as the door closes behind him.

During the Break


Footage of Harry Smith being put in to an ambulance is shown with Paul Burchill, TJ Wilson & Natalya Neidhart joining him, all of whom were looking very concerned, and as the ambulance drove off and out of the arena, the camera spun round to a shot of The Empire watching on and laughing before walking away.


*Cut to the Arena*


*Match #5*
Lumberjack Match
Christian w/John Cena, Matt Sydal & Bobby Lashley, Charlie Haas
vs. Chris Jericho w/Edge, Shelton Benjamin & Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez


We again saw a very competitive match and the crowd were really fired up for this one, more than any other the whole night. Christian was ultra-pumped from the get go and took it to Jericho, putting him on the back foot in the early going. The rest of his team came to his aid and brought him back in to the match, playing their part by using their presence to Jericho’s advantage. The match kicked in to gear with Jericho desperate to make sure Christian didn’t get one over on him, and he stole the advantage when he countered a diving crossbody by jumping up and nailing his fellow Canadian in the chest with a dropkick.

He quickly pulled Captain Charisma away from the ropes and ran in to the ropes, springboarding for a Lionsault. He hit it but was left frustrated when Christian kicked out at two. He was in the mood and eager to finish the job there & then, going right to his grounded opponent’s legs to lock in the Walls of Jericho. Christian hung on in and was determined to fight his way out of it, and he bravely fought through the pain to drag himself to the ropes, much to the delight of Team Cena. They were encouraging him and getting the crowd to do the same as he used the ropes to help make it back up to his feet with Jericho watching his every move with sheer contempt.

He didn’t take his eyes off of him, and as Christian turned round and barely stepped away, Jericho ran at him, jumping up for the Codebreaker. Christian though grabbed the ropes and pulled back, seeing Jericho fall to the deck to a big pop. Christian reacted in a flash to go for a jackknife cover, but Jericho kicked out fairly comfortably at the count of two. Both men made it back up as quickly as they could and Jericho missed with an enzuigiri, and as he pulled himself up again, Christian grabbed him by the head and planted him with an inverted DDT.

The fans were cheering as the hopeful Christian reached across to hook the leg for the cover, but Jericho this time was the one to frustrate his opponent by getting his shoulder up to break the count. Christian was gutted as he leaned back up on his knees. Jericho was coming round, rolling on to his side, and Christian slowly stood back up and stepped back, stalking him for the Killswitch. The crowd were loving it, but Team Punk certainly weren’t on the outside. Del Rio-Ramirez panicked big time and jumped up on the apron, getting the attention of Christian and his team-mates around the ring.

The ref went over and told him to get down, not that the Mexican did as he was told. It was left to Cena & Sydal to drag him down, provoking a shoving contest resulting in Del Rio-Ramirez being knocked to the floor by Cena. Benjamin went to his aid, but with the ref concerned about any further trouble, like Christian he had his back to the ring. Edge snuck in there as Jericho was getting to his knees, and as Christian then turned round and walked away from the ropes, The Rated-R Superstar took him down with a spear to a chorus of boos.

He slipped out of the ring in a hurry as Jericho scurried over quickly to make the cover, shouting across at the referee to make the cover. The ref did just that and only as the ref counted to three did Team Cena see what was going on. They hit the ring as Jericho got out as quickly as he could with the rest of Team Punk joining him & Edge on the ramp, gloating up at Cena and his team in the ring, who weren’t happy at all. Christian sat up furiously and glared over at them, all smirking back at them to a ton of heat with “Break The Walls Down” playing before the camera shot to CM Punk watching in the back with a big smile on his face.

Winner: Chris Jericho by pinfall.

Josh Matthews is standing by at the interview set.

Josh Matthews:
Please welcome my guest at this time, along with his Survivor Series team, from Raw, The Miz.

The camera zooms out and we see The Miz in his ring gear along with his team, Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger & Heath Slater, and all of them are looking very serious tonight.

Josh Matthews:
Miz, we’re just two nights away from your elimination match against Shawn’s Michaels team, but t’night you’ll be going one on one with The Heartbreak Kid. How confident are you of both victory here t’night and Sunday at Survivor Series?

The Miz: How confident am I? Really Josh? Really? Why shouldn’t I be confident? It’s why I accepted this challenge t’ be here t’night. Like I’ve said all along, Michaels’ career is all but dead. You’re looking at the future. Look at us Josh. Take it all in. We’re the next generation of superstars, headliners an’ show stoppers. T’night when I get in that ring Michaels will see that f’ himself. Just like you an’ all those fans out there, he either doesn’t see it or doesn’t wanna see it. Well he’s about t’ find out. He’s gonna find out just how awesome I am when I beat him t’night just like my team beat his on Raw, then at Survivor Series we’ll prove to the world just how awesome we all are.

Miz stares intently in to the camera for a couple of seconds before turning away and heading out of the shot, followed by his team mates.

>This Sunday!<

Michael Cole:
Well the wait is almost over folks. We’re less than forty-eight hours away from the twenty-second annual Survivor Series, live exclusively on pay-per-view this Sunday from the Air Canada Center in Toronto Canada.. . .


Michael Cole: . . . On the Raw side of things, the young ambitious Ted DiBiase has an opportunity to make a name for himself when he goes up against one of the all time greats in the shape of The Undertaker.

Matt Striker: I have a feeling that it may well soon be an opportunity he wished he hadn’t asked for, and after what he did on Raw, he could be in for a rude awakening. What may work in his favour however is his trump card, Ezekiel Jackson. Wherever Ted goes, he’s there, as is Maryse, and having seen what he’s done to the dead-man in recent weeks, add t’ that what we know Ted is capable of, we might well have a surprise on our hands.



Michael Cole: Three teams will battle it out in the final of the World Tag Team Championship tournament where finally new champions will be crowned.

Matt Striker: All three of these teams are extremely talented, both as individuals and as a unit. It’s impossible t’ pick a winner but it’s safe t’ say that whoever leaves as the new World Tag Team Champions will have been part of what I’m sure will be an incredible contest.



Michael Cole: Well there’s no title at stake here Matt. This is about far more than championship gold. This is about the careers of both The Big Show an’ J-B-L when they collide inside the sadistic structure we call Hell in a Cell where the loser will leave the w-w-e forever.

Matt Striker: Oh Michael, I just spoke of how incredible a contest the tag team title match will be, and this will be too in a completely diff’rent manner. This is going to be absolutely brutal. Both The Big Show an’ J-B-L will have to battle for their lives to survive this encounter. I can’t begin to imagine just how brutal this is going t’ be. All I know is I can’t wait t’ find out.



Michael Cole: I’m sure there are a lot of people who can’t wait for these three men, the former Evolution team-mates to battle it out for Batista’s w-w-e Championship.

Matt Striker: You can count me as one of them Michael. These three guys have so much hist’ry and personal issues, but what they all have in common is that they crave the w-w-e Championship. Triple H an’ Randy Orton are almost obsessed by it. They will do anything to get their hands on it, but unlike Ted DiBiase, Randy Orton no longer has his wild card to help him. He’ll have to go this alone and you have to wonder if it is his destiny to regain the title he’s done ev’rything t’ get back since he lost it at WrestleMania.



Michael Cole: One thing that we all love about Survivor Series is the traditional elimination matches, none more so than we get t’ see the Raw an’ Smackdown superstars go head t’ head, an’ once again we’ll see the two brands lock horns Sunday night.

Matt Striker: And after t’night Michael, our guys will be full of confidence. We’ve got a team that can come out on top, however so does Raw. It’ll be an intriguing battle come Sunday in Toronto, that’s f’ sure.



Michael Cole: We’ll also see the superstars of Raw an’ Smackdown collide, but it won’t be another battle of the brands when Shawn Michaels along with his team take on The Miz’s awesome team.

Matt Striker: The Miz sure has talked a good fight. He’ll have the chance in a few moments t’ do more than that, but I can’t help but wonder if he’s put too much pressure on himself and the rest of his young team. They may well be the future of the company, however this is also their first year in the company. The Heartbreak Kid as well as his team have so much experience in their locker, which in a situation like this may well be crucial. Only time well tell if that will prove to be the case.



Michael Cole: It all comes down t’ this Matt. Team Cena versus Team Punk, and we all know what’s at stake here with a shot at C-M Punk’s World Heavyweight title waiting in the wings for Cena at Night of Champions if he leads his team t’ vict’ry.

Matt Striker: I honestly can’t recall a time when I’ve seen so much resentment to any one individual as there is here t’ John Cena. We’ve already seen t’night how motivated an’ dangerous Punk’s team are. I have to agree that I don’t see Team Cena having the same determination as their opponents, but one thing I’ve learned over the last few years is never ever write off John Cena. This is going t’ be one almighty battle to the finish.

Michael Cole: It’ll be one of many. It sure is going t’ be one incredible night that you simply can’t afford t’ miss. Remember it’s live only on pay-per-view. Go t’ w-w-e dot com or contact your cable provider for more details t’ make sure you catch what will be an unmissable night of action.


*Cut to the Arena*


*The Main Event*
Shawn Michaels w/Kofi Kingston, Bryan Danielson & Elijah Burke
vs. The Miz w/Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger & Heath Slater


For once in a while, The Miz wasn’t acting all cocky as he hit the ring, looking more like a man with a point to prove. It wasn’t that easy though and Michaels wasn’t about to give him an easy fight. The Heartbreak Kid with most of the crowd behind him despite some “You Screwed Bret” chants gave The Miz a wrestling lesson, but like on Raw Monday night, Team Miz helped each other out. When Michaels went up top, all set to land the deadly elbow drop on their team captain, they came to his rescue. Slater jumped up on the apron and grabbed Michaels boot, but Shawn quickly pushed him away.

He gave the rest of Team Miz a warning to stay out of his business, allowing The Miz some recovery time and to dive against the ropes. Michaels fell in to a seated position and Miz then put the boots to him, pulling him down in to the tree of woe. Miz’s underhand tactics kept him in the contest, and it looked like he would actually get the win when he connected with a leg drop bulldog off the second rope. Michaels though kicked out at two, and Mr. Hollywood sensed victory was his. He got up and urged his opponent to get back up, looking to hit the Skull Crushing Finale.

He pulled Michaels in to position but HBK slipped behind and took him down with a russian legsweep. As they then picked themselves back up, Miz reversed an irish whip, but as Michaels came back off the ropes he ducked a clothesline and ran through before coming back to hit a flying forearm to a big pop. It got even louder when he flipped up, met with some boos. He headed to the ropes and went all the way to the rope, turning back on his action, looking back as Miz stood up and walked towards him, right in to an Asai moonsault.

The Miz wasn’t done and kicked out, and as Michaels got up he brought his opponent up with him, firing him in to the opposite corner. He ran in at him straight away but right in to a raised boot from The Miz, sending Michaels staggering away from the corner. As he then turned round, Miz ran at him but right in to the Crossface, met by an insane mixed reaction from the Edmonton crowd. Mix was in agony, screaming out in pain as Michaels wretched away at his face, but to his credit The Miz fought & fought, surviving the deadly submission hold, fighting his way to the ropes.

He was all but done, looking like all his energy was gone, and Michaels knew he was on the edge. He backed up to the corner and started to tune up the band, cheered on by his team as The Miz unwittingly clawed his way back up, struggling to do so. He made it up and his team looked worried, and as he turned round, his rookie panicked. Slater slid in the ring, catching Michaels’ attention, and The Heartbreak Kid switched targets and nailed him with the Sweet Chin Music that sent him under the bottom rope and down to the floor.

The crowd went nuts, but as he turned back and went after The Miz, Mr. Hollywood ducked it and hit Shawn with a low blow to a ton of heat, getting himself disqualified. The boos kept on going as The Miz rolled out of the ring, joining his team on the outside as Team HBK got in the ring to check on their captain. Team Miz skulked away, helping Slater up as they exchanged intense looks with the angry foursome in the ring, looking ready for their clash at Survivor Series in two nights.

Winner: Shawn Michaels by DQ.


*Video Promo*

The very relaxed and casually dressed World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk is shown making his way through the back with the world title draped over his shoulder.


*Commercial Break*


“13”

Smackdown’s GM, Tazz is in the ring, standing in the centre with a microphone in hand and his music cuts.

Tazz:
In just two nights at Survivor Series, we’ve got a huge elimination match for ya between two incredible teams, one led by John Cena, an’ the other will by the World Heavyweight Champion C-M Punk, an’ if John Cena’s team wins, he’ll meet C-M Punk at Night of Champions for the world title.

*Big Pop*

Tazz: It’s fair t’ say that our World Champion’s had a few problems the last few weeks, so right now I’m gonna invite them down t’ the ring an’ we’re gonna have them face-off, get ev’rything off their chests.

*Pop*

Tazz: So at this time, please welcome the World Heavyweight Champion, C-M Punk.

*Major Heat*

“This Fire Burns”

The World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk walks out to the stage to a largely negative reception grinning big time and looking very relaxed. He coolly heads down the ramp smirking at the fans as Tazz looks on from the ring, not all that happy it would seem, and as Punk steps inside the ring he picks a microphone up off the apron, he gives Tazz a very disapproving look.

Tazz:
Now it gives me great pleasure to intr’duce the man whose team will meet C-M Punk’s at Survivor Series. Give it up for JOHN CENA.

*Big Pop (Some Heat)*

“My Time is Now”

The crowd erupts as John Cena hits the stage, more subdued than normal, very business like as he looks down directly at Punk. The World Champion looks right back at him, not impressed by him at all, not showing any respect whatsoever as Cena salutes the crowd and sets off down the ramp, taking his time, focusing solely on Punk as he gets to the steps. Tazz welcomes him in and shakes his hand, then hands him a microphone with Punk smirking and shaking his head as the music cuts, bringing out the deafening noise from the crowd, mostly cheers but with a lot of boos mixed in too. Tazz steps back as Cena again focuses on Punk.

Tazz:
Alright. Who wants us t’ get us started?

CM Punk: Y’know John I’ve been racking my brain all night thinking what I wanted t’ say t’ you t’night, and with this just being a two hour show and since we’re right at the end of it I’m gonna have t’ go t’ the short version of this which is difficult in itself, but I’m gonna start by talkin’ about me. It’s not because I’m arrogant but because it’s relevant. See from the moment I joined this company I’ve stayed the same person, the same CM Punk from then ‘til now. It might not’ve been popular the whole time but the fact is I’ve not changed one bit from the very first time I stepped inside a w-w-e ring.

*Heat*

CM Punk: I’ve always spoken my mind as you know regardless of what these people, the guys in the back or the all important people who sign my pay cheque think. In the little over two years I’ve been here I’ve worked my ass off all the way to the e-c-w championship and now the world championship. I’ve worked my ass of to get where I am now and no one’s taking this from me, and that. . . that especially means you John.

*Heat*

Punk stares intently at Cena, letting him know exactly how he feels.

CM Punk:
Now I know that the powers that be are pinning all their hopes on you doing just that. I mean that’s why they brought you over here in the first place, but mark my words John, I don’t care who I upset right now because it’s about time someone made a stand against you an’ the blatant favouritism you’ve gotten that right now feels like f’ever. It’s time that someone else gets all the opportunities you’ve been handed time an’ time again, like the one you got when you decided t’ leave Raw that affects me an’ my world title. The fact is John I could walk back through that curtain an’ within ten seconds I’d find a handful of people more deserving of a title opportunity than you that haven’t had one their entire career here. Hell just look at your team for Survivor Series. Each one of them is more deserving than you are, yet you’re the only one who’s fighting for a shot at my world title at Night of Champions.

*Mixed*

CM Punk: It makes me sick t’ my stomach that someone who’s as talentless as you is forced down these fans’ throats week in week out an’ it’s hardly an understatement t’ say that I’m not the only one. Take a look at my team but more importantly most of these people here t’night an’ all over the world feel the exact same way we do. See as much as you’re forced down their throats, everywhere you go, the kids might love you but you hear what the real fans think of you. You don’t need me to remind me you of that because I’m sure it haunts you.

“CENA SUCKS, CENA SUCKS!. . .”

Punk mouths to Cena, telling him to listen to the crowd.

CM Punk:
If it doesn’t, it really should because when they’re telling you you suck, they’re telling you the truth. Not everyone buys the manufactured kid’s super hero crap, least of all the guys in the back you’ve walked over for the last few years all the way in to back t’ back t’ back t’ back WrestleMania main events. It’s a wonder you can even you look at yourself in the mirror, but y’know what really ticks me off John? That we have t’ hear all this crap about what a great guy you are an’ how hard you work. Well the truth is you might work hard but that doesn’t make you a good wrestler. . . sorry, sports entertainer. What was I thinking?. . . Anyway, getting back on track, you’ve had tens of thousands of people telling you you can’t wrestle an’ no matter what crap they’re told to believe, like me they see through it.

Punk looks right over at Cena with Cena staring right back, somehow keeping his cool and Tazz looking slightly uncomfortable.

CM Punk:
You remember WrestleMania twen’y two in my hometown right? I was there which of course you know, an’ I heard the reaction you got that night. I saw your face an’ like any real wrestling fan, I laughed. It’s what you deserved an’ you still do over two years on.

The World Champion’s looking very smug as he smiles across at Cena, still remaining tight lipped and surprisingly composed.

CM Punk:
Y’know John I heard a couple of guys earlier on talking about you and they were talking about how you reminded them of the Ultimate Warrior, but I’ve got t’ say I think that’s unfair. See Warrior might not’ve been much of a wrestler, something you do have in common, but he earned every opportunity he got. Wherever he went he had the whole crowd on their feet cheering their asses off when his music hit. The same sure can’t be said about you though. When he went in to what was arguably the biggest match in the history of this business against Hulk Hogan, the man who made this business what it is, he beat him at the Skydome in Toronto, and the fans ate it up.

*Pop*

CM Punk: And unlike you he didn’t have to come back as a Vanilla Ice wannabe just to get a reaction because no one gave a rat’s ass about the real him.

Cena looks like he wants to say something and lifts the microphone to his mouth but pulls it back, much to the amusement of Punk.

CM Punk:
Yeah, that hurt does it John? Maybe that’s because it’s true. That’s why John I didn’t want you here in the first place because I knew they’d be doing everything they can t’ make sure you become the star of this show and more importantly the World Heavyweight Champion. Well I have a newsflash for you, for Tazz an’ the powers that be that I’m not going t’ let that happen.

*Mixed*

CM Punk: I might come across cocky an’ at times I might be but I’m not stupid. I know there’s a chance you might win at Survivor Series an’ get the shot handed to you on a plate at Night of Champions. As much as you suck as a wrestler, you’re a fighter an’ I actually respect that. I know it’s not going t’ be easy but you have t’ realise that you’ll be up against five guys who share the same sentiments I do. Like me an’ the real fans, they know you’re a fraud an’ they’re going t’ do everything in their power to make sure you don’t walk all over the real talent a moment longer.

John Cena: You done?

CM Punk: Oh I’m not done until you are. You might be a fighter. You might be tough but this is one fight not even you can win John regardless of the support you’ve got from management. We’ve had as much as we can take of John Cena. We’re fighting for everyone back there t’ make sure the opportunities you get are given to those who deserve them. The title shots, the WrestleMania main events, the film roles, the t-v gigs, even all the charity gigs you get t’ make you look like this nice caring guy. It’s funny John ‘cause if I could make one wish which you’d know all about I’d go back in time to the day whoever it was who was sent to scout you an’ thought, man he sure can’t work f’ shit but screw it he’s got the look, we need t’ sign this guy.

Tazz: I think you better watch y’mouth Punk.

CM Punk: Alright, that might be a slight exaggeration but it’s not far off the mark an’ it really ticks me off ‘cause I had t’ work my ass off t’ get in the position I’m in now, an’ I don’t care if this gets me in hot water boss but it has t’ be said. I’m not going t’ let a fraud like him, you or anyone take it away from me. I’ve worked too hard t’ let that happen. . .

John Cena: . . . Alright Punk, you’re done now. You can call me a lot o’things but one thing I’m sure as hell not is a fraud. Yeah I might not be the best wrestler in the world, which I’ve never claimed t’ be by the way, but just like you I’ve worked my ass of t’ get where I am too. . .

CM Punk: . . . No John, there’s a diff’rence. I worked my ass off t’ get an opportunity to even be here. I’ve wrestled all over the globe in front of less than ten people, so don’t even try an’ justify what you’ve done. From day one you’ve been given them on a plate, one after another after another. Don’t even try an’ embarrass y’self ‘cause why else would you even be here in the position you are going in t’ Survivor Series with a world title shot that’s just been thrown at you ‘cause you’re John Cena?

John Cena: Y’know y’think you’ve got all this figured out don’t y’Punk? Fact of the matter is I’ve bust my ass t’ get these opportunities an’ I sure as hell ain’t no fraud, an’ if y’so much as call me that one more time I ain’t gonna wait ‘til Survivor Series t’ knock your teeth down y’throat.

*Mixed*

CM Punk: Oh that’s got me worried.

John Cena: Trust me Punk, you don’t wanna push me. Bigger names than you have tried an’ failed. WrestleMania twen’y two, Chicago, yeah like you I remember that night, but y’know what I remember most about that night? It wasn’t the fans, what they were sayin’, it was making Triple H tap out an’ retaining the w-w-e championship on the biggest stage of them all.

*Mixed*

John Cena: Fast forward a year an’ I did the same thing against Shawn Michaels, Mister WrestleMania himself. My first WrestleMania, I beat The Big Show, year after that I ended J-B-L, the wrestling god’s famous year long run as w-w-e Champion t’ win my first w-w-e title, an’ I didn’t do it by cashin’ in the money in the bank contract like some opportunistic son of a bitch with a smart mouth.

*Mixed*

CM Punk: It’s what it’s there for bro’. Besides it’s the only title shot all year that’s not handed out t’ you. You’ve been mister money in the bank f’ over two years.

Punk & Cena both take deep long looks at each other with Tazz not sure what to make of it.

CM Punk:
Seriously John, I know all that stuff you just rattled off an’ it doesn’t change a thing. That’s what this is all about. . . change. There’s so many people that are so sick of having you get all the breaks. Y’can try talk your way out of it all you want but John you’re not stupid. You’ve heard what the fans think of you, what we as wrestlers, sorry superstars think of you. As much as you an’ the powers that be wanna ignore it, you can’t. They’re not going t’ stop telling you suck or you can’t wrestle an’ things much worse than that, which unfortunately I can’t repeat as much as I want to ‘cause this is a family show. That doesn’t stop me from telling you that despite ev’rything I’ve accomplished this year like becoming the World Champion, overcoming four of the best this show has to offer an’ then beating Shawn Michaels at SummerSlam, that’ll all pale in comparison when I beat you at Survivor Series.

*Mixed*

CM Punk: Beating you along with ev’rything else that goes with it will be the most satisfying moment of not just my career but my entire life bar none, an’ trust me John, I’ll do whatever the hell it takes t’ do just that. I know that might not be popular with some of you here t’night or with Tazz or the McMahon family but I don’t care. It’s time f’ a change an’ this Sunday, it’ll be the end of the biggest fraud ever t’ step foot inside a squared circle.

John Cena: I’ve already told y’Punk. Y’can all me a lot o’things but call me a fraud one more time an’. . .

CM Punk: . . . You’re right John, I apologise. I’ll take it back on one condition. . . you kiss my skinny white ass.

*Mixed*

John Cena: You’re a classy guy Punk. A classy guy with a smart mouth that might just come back t’ bite you in the ass Sunday night. As for me kissin’ your ass Punk, that ain’t gonna happen, but I do have a better idea. . .

Cena drops the microphone in a flash and nails Punk with a right hand, knocking him down to the mat. Tazz looks concerned as Punk picks himself back up, and Cena’s right on him, lifting him up on to his shoulders for the F-U. The fans are going nuts as Punk tries to wriggle free, and as Cena spins round, Punk’s boot catches Tazz in the face and sends him down to the mat. Cena looks down, showing some concern for the GM when a boo breaks out. Punk’s rookie, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez charges down the ramp and slides in to the ring. Cena turns round and sees him, then drops Punk on the mat.

The Mexican runs at Cena, going for a clothesline, but Cena ducks it and lifts him in to place for the F-U and sends Del Rio-Ramirez crashing in to the canvas to a huge roar. He stands up with the fans cheering, but as he turns round, he’s taken down by a spear from Edge out of nowhere. It’s met by a ton of boos as well as some cheers as Punk sits up with another smirk on his face. Edge glares down remorselessly at Cena as Chris Jericho & Shelton Benjamin calmly walk down the ramp to the ring. Punk stands up and Del Rio-Ramirez comes round as their team-mates join them & Edge in the ring. Punk shouts over at Edge and instructs him to pick Cena up off the mat.

Jericho & Benjamin go to give him a helping hand as a big pop breaks out. The camera cuts to a shot of Team Cena, Christian, Matt Sydal, Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas racing down the ramp to come to their captain’s aid. Team Punk panic and all flea the ring as their Survivor Series opponents all slide in and run to the ropes to make sure they see off Punk & Co. Tazz too stands up, a bit frosty as Cena’s helped up by Sydal & Haas with Christian & Lashley staring intently at Team Punk as they back up the ramp glaring right back at them with Punk raising his title up in to the air with “This Fire Burns” playing. Punk mouths at them it’s his title and Cena’s not getting anywhere near it. Cena steadies himself on his feet and gazes up at his opponents looking ready for war as the show comes to a close.

Re: WWE: A Strong Response




>Headlines!<

>The Empire Rule With Force; Tag Champion Left With Broken Ankle!<



For the last few weeks the problems between the two British teams, The Empire and the WWE Tag Team Champions, The UK Pack have escalated, and last night on Smackdown they escalated tenfold, so much so that we can now reveal Harry Smith has been left with a broken ankle.

Smith was taken to a local medical facility in Edmonton after Wade Barrett repeatedly drove a steel chair in to his left ankle, resulting in Smith receiving urgent medical attention. That was only after along with Drew McIntyre & William Regal, Barrett took out TJ Wilson and Smith’s partner, and co-holder of the WWE Tag Team titles, Paul Burchill. Katie Lee also fought with Natalya Neidhart outside the ring as the mugging took place in the ring. We’ve also been told that Smith is likely to be out of action for the foreseeable future, raising the serious question of what will happen to the champions and their titles now.

Fortunately they aren’t scheduled to compete tomorrow night at Survivor Series, meaning we may have to wait until Friday to find out for a decision on the immediate future of WWE tag team titles.

Re: WWE: A Strong Response




>Headlines!<

>Title Rematch Set for Friday Night!<



We heard Tazz say last week that J-Red will receive a rematch at Johnny Jeter’s Cruiserweight Championship sometime in the near future, and last night we found out that rematch will take place this coming Friday.

Red was seemingly robbed of the title when his then mentor, Chavo Guerrero got involved, attacking the all-action Puerto Rican when he was about to hit the Red Alert on Jeter, getting the challenger disqualfied. Last night we saw Jeter in action against his former rookie in Yoshi Tatsu, coming out victorious after a spirited effort from the Japanese rookie. Red too was up against his former mentor like Yoshi, but he was able to come out on top, beating Chavo in a competitive & heated match. Afterwards however, Red was once again attacked from behind, only this time by Jeter who earlier in the evening declared the impressive high-flyer won’t be taking his title from him.

Is Jeter right? Will Red fail to take his second opportunity at the title or will he be able to finish the job he wasn’t able to two weeks ago?

Re: WWE: A Strong Response





Backstage News & Rumours!

With the Survivor Series just a matter of hours away, there’s a lot of speculation & rumblings going on backstage, some of which refer to CM Punk’s promo on Smackdown two nights ago. As far as we’re aware, Punk was given permission to shoot from the hip and the majority of the promo was discussed before & during the show. Apparently officials were fine with the criticism of Cena as a lot of the audience are either aware or agree with what Punk had to say. It was also set up with Survivor Series in mind, to create more hype for the elimination match between Team Cena & Team Punk, which ironically will see Christian, Matt Sydal, Bobby Lashley, Charlie Haas, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez & Shelton Benjamin main event a pay-per-view. It’s not been confirmed, but the expectation is that Cena’s team will win and Cena will go on to challenge Punk for the World Heavyweight Championship at Night of Champions next month. It’s also believed that the match may well now headline the show ahead of the WWE Championship triple threat match between the former Evolution team-mates, Batista, Randy Orton & Triple H, however the final decision is yet to be made with officials split in opinion.

We’re also hearing that Punk is impressing officials backstage at the moment and we’re told that he has been pencilled in for a ‘massive’ match at WrestleMania next year. It’s not said how long his title reign will last but he’s been told that he’s considered as one of the company’s most important superstars moving forward.

We’ve reported on a number of occasions recently that we may well see some high profile departures in the coming months. We know that one of The Big Show or J.B.L. will be leaving the company permanently after tonight’s Hell in a Cell match, and we also hear that another top star will be taking some time off as early as next week. There will also be another headline departure at the end of the year which we understand will be permanent.

Speculation on the internet has suggested that they may relate to The Undertaker & Shawn Michaels but we can report that isn’t the case. Both are in what’s been described as ‘decent’ condition right now but they are believed to be thinking about their retirement. We understand that won’t be before WrestleMania as they both want one more ‘WrestleMania moment’, and they’ll also be the only superstars in the company who competed at the only other pay-per-view to take place outside of America & Canada at Wembley Stadium, SummerSlam ’92. WrestleMania 25 will take place in the brand new Wembley Stadium next year to mark the special anniversary based on the success of SummerSlam ’92, the company’s continued popularity in the United Kingdom as well as the success they’ve had with the television tapings across the pond in the last four years.

Obviously officials are concerned that the departures may give them some problems and have given creative a nudge to start work on developing the next generation of main eventers. The talent in question has been discussed heavily in recent month and some of those names mentioned have already started to receive a push like Christian. We’re also told that the other talent in line for a strong push include Matt Sydal, Bryan Danielson, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Ted DiBiase, The Miz & Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez. Of those, Sheamus is likely to be elevated to the main event scene after WrestleMania and is considered the next top heel. Officials have been impressed with the Intercontinental Champion since his debut, especially so with his development in the last couple of months.

A couple of superstars will also be taking some time off due to niggling injuries, and with Night of Champions coming up, anyone not booked for that card will have the time to rest up if they need to. The opportunity will also be given for other superstars to get some more TV time and make an impression.

The tag team division is also in the process of being strengthened significantly. Rey Mysterio & Mystico will remain as a team for the time being and Paul London & Brian Kendrick will also reunite on Smackdown. In addition, Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas will continue their recent big push, as will The Empire who will be involved in a lengthy feud with The UK Pack, the current champions on Smackdown, and we’re told that there will be a significant development in that storyline this week after Harry Smith was injured (kayfabe) this week. On the Raw side of things, Christopher Daniels & Kaval have impressed greatly while Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig are considered the team for the future.

We will keep you updated on any developments as & when we get them.



*Just a quick update on Survivor Series, I finished writing the last match last night. It’s already been formatted and all the promos & tidbits were already done. I’ve done some work on the preview tonight and should have that finished by tomorrow after work. I might even try and get it done there if I can between classes. I’ll have it up by the end of the week and the show itself Sunday/Monday hopefully.

WWE Championship
Batista © vs. Randy Orton vs. Triple H


For the first time ever, these three former Evolution team-mates will collide in a triple threat match for the WWE Championship. ‘The Animal’ Batista has a battle on his hands to hold on to the title that both challengers, Randy Orton & Triple H are hell bent on taking from him, however as we saw last Monday night on Raw, The Animal is up for the challenge.

At the start of the year, we saw Batista return to Raw along with Ric Flair to help Triple H, reforming Evolution while Orton held the WWE title. Batista & The Game never looked closer than they were at that time, all until Batista won the opportunity to fight for the WWE Championship he went on to win later that night at Vengeance. Triple H was furious and turned his back on their friendship, as well as The Nature Boy’s before going on to retire him at SummerSlam as once again, The Legend Killer failed to reclaim the WWE title in the Elimination Chamber where Batista defeated him to retain the gold.

A month later at Unforgiven, Orton was given another opportunity to get his hands on the title he’s desperately tried to get back since losing at WrestleMania, but Triple H threw a spanner in the works. It looked as if Orton was going to punt Batista in the head and become WWE Champion again when The Game got involved, bringing his sledgehammer with him. Both Batista & Orton were on the receiving end of vicious sledgehammer shots, once again leaving Orton without the title that The King of Kings was desperate to call his too.

With battle lines already drawn between Batista & Triple H and Batista & Orton, Orton quickly turned his attention to getting even with The Game. All hell broke loose, and despite his better judgment, Eric Bischoff went against his initial promise not to give in to Triple H’s demand and made the triple threat match for the title official for Survivor Series. Despite that, Batista & Triple H especially have been at each other’s throats with The Game convinced The Animal was dating his wife after he separated from Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley.

It wasn’t the case, but Batista had other issues, trusting The Viper, and Orton showed he couldn’t be trusted a couple of weeks ago when he blindsided the WWE Champion with an RKO. Last Monday night, Batista was out for revenge on Orton this time, and Bischoff gave him that chance by arranging a tag team match that saw Orton joining forces with his rookie, Darren Young to take on Batista & Triple H, and if Orton & Young lost, it would be Young’s last night on Raw. Like tonight, The Animal had a battle on his hands and he was up to the challenge, winning the match after an altercation with his partner, ending Orton’s rookie’s chances of earning a permanent place on Raw.

Batista’s clearly ready to fight for his title as he showed on Monday night, but will he come out on top again tonight when the title all three men want desperately is on the line?





World Tag Team Championship – Tournament Final
Team Omega (Matt Hardy & Gregory Helms) vs. Rey Mysterio & Mystico
vs. Christopher Daniels & Kaval


Tonight we will finally determine new World Tag Team Champions when the final three teams standing meet head on in the final of the controversial championship tournament.

It’s a match that one team is very unhappy about. Christopher Daniels & Kaval made their way through to the final after two impressive victories, but a week later in the second semi final, Matt Hardy & Gregory Helms met Rey Mysterio & Mystico for the right to face Daniels & Kaval in the final for a shot at the titles. Things however didn’t go as smoothly as they did in the first semi final as the match ended in a double count out. It left Eric Bischoff with a decision to make, but his decision to make the final a triple threat match didn’t go down at all well with Daniels & Kaval.

They were livid that they were forced to take on two teams in the final after they booked their place in the final with back to back victories, unlike the two teams they’ll meet tonight. Bischoff though didn’t change his mind, meaning all three teams will battle it out for the vacant titles this evening. Daniels & Kaval haven’t changed their stance on Bischoff’ decision and the undefeated duo who have been extremely impressive since their debut in the summer, well their anger reached boiling point last Monday.

After Matt Hardy came out on top in a triple threat match against Mystico & Kaval, Hardy, Helms, Mysterio & Mystico shook hands and wished each other the best of luck for tonight’s match. As the Mexican mentor & rookie combination left their friends alone, Daniels & Kaval jumped them until Rey & Mystico returned to the scene before only two teams were left able to compete in the final.

All three teams are fit & ready to fight for the titles later on, but only one will walk out as the new World Tag Team Champions, just which team will that be; the life long friends, the Mexican mentor & rookie combination or the angry undefeated duo?





If Team Cena wins, Cena will face CM Punk at Night of Champions for the World Heavyweight Championship
Team Cena (John Cena, Christian, Matt Sydal, Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas)
vs. Team Punk (CM Punk, Edge, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez, Chris Jericho & Shelton Benjamin)


John Cena’s switch to Smackdown from Raw was hailed as a massive coup by Tazz, but it’s clear he didn’t anticipate the welcome he’d get from the rest of the locker room.

Even before Cena agreed to trade Monday nights for Fridays, the World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk amongst others voiced his opposition, especially when it was announced that if Cena did choose to join Smackdown, he’d be given the chance to fight for Punk’s title at Night of Champions. That’s if he was able to lead a team to victory at Survivor Series against a team led by Punk. The Straight-Edge Superstar isn’t the most popular man in the locker room but he had no problem whatsoever getting a team together to ensure Cena doesn’t get anywhere near a title shot they all agree he doesn’t deserve to be fighting for ahead of them and everyone else in the locker room.

They were also confident that Cena wouldn’t be able to put a team together, however that’s not been the case. He’s managed to put quite the team together, consisting of the United States Champion & King of the Ring, Matt Sydal, Christian, and the team that’s been taking Smackdown by storm lately in Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas. They’ll be up against a team that’s shown great unity in recent weeks that includes former World Champions, Edge & Chris Jericho as well as the resurgent Shelton Benjamin and Punk’s rookie, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez. This past Friday night, Christian & Jericho met in a Lumberjack Match, and once again Captain Charisma came undone thanks to his brother, Edge.

However the controversy didn’t end there on Friday night as Cena & Punk met in a face-off. The World Champion has never been shy of speaking his mind but he well & truly shot from the hip and left everyone in no uncertain terms in just what he thought of his opposing team captain. He pushed Cena over the edge, but Punk’s team were quickly on hand to help out their captain. It didn’t take long for the rest of Team Cena to save the day for him, ensuring that if it wasn’t personal enough already between the two captains & teams, it sure is now.

With Punk’s team going all out to make sure Cena doesn’t get the title shot he’s been promised upon victory, can Cena and his team book him a spot against Punk at Night of Champions? Edge & Jericho want that shot for themselves. Will they be able to steal it away from him? Whatever happens it’s going to be one hell of a battle that you simply can’t afford to miss with more controversy guaranteed if history is anything to go by.





Team Raw (Sheamus (cpt), John Morrison, Carlito, Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig)
vs. Team Smackdown (M.V.P. (cpt), Ron Killings, Paul London, Brian Kendrick & Santino Marella)


There’s nothing like a bit of brand warfare, and what better place to do it than the Survivor Series in a traditional elimination match?

Dubbed the ‘Battle of the Brands’, Raw & Smackdown will collide with Team Raw being captained by the Intercontinental Champion, Sheamus who has yet to be pinned or made to submit since arriving on Raw. His Smackdown counterpart is the former United States Champion, M.V.P. The two teams have been at war in recent weeks, which went up a gear last week when both team captains met one on one live on Raw Monday night. It was The Celtic Warrior that came out on top before he sent the rest of Team Smackdown a stern warning that defeat lies in wait for all of them come Survivor Series.

However the confident Intercontinental Champion was then invited along with the rest of Team Raw to go to Smackdown on Friday night where all ten participants in tonight’s match met in an over the top rope Battle Royal, won by Team Smackdown with M.V.P. settling the score from Raw earlier in the week. It didn’t go down well with Sheamus as he was the last man to be eliminated, and he along with the rest of Team Raw will have to put that defeat to one side later on tonight when they take on the resurgent Smackdown team.

M.V.P. & Ron Killings showed how fired up they are on Friday night, and Paul London & Brian Kendrick have even been able to put their differences aside over the last couple of weeks since their difficulties on Raw. Surprisingly, Raw’s team have been able to put their differences to one side too with Sheamus & Carlito temporarily calling a truce with the Puerto Rican still hoping to get a shot at the Irishman’s title. Cody Rhodes and his rookie, Joe Hennig have stepped up to the plate and done what their captain has asked of them, and all that’s left now is for the two teams to battle it out with only one of them able to gain brand supremacy.

Will that be the so called ‘A show’, or will the blue brand be able to take that title from them?





Team H.B.K. (Shawn Michaels, Bryan Danielson, Kofi Kingston & Elijah Burke)
vs. Team Miz (The Miz, Heath Slater, Jack Swagger & Dolph Ziggler)


The Miz has described this match as the future against the past, and this evening he & his team will have the chance to make their mark at the expense of a future Hall of Famer in the shape of ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels.

We’ll find out if Mr. Hollywood can back up his words tonight, but it was his big mouth that led to this match, talking himself in to trouble with The Heartbreak Kid. Coming off the back of his victory over John Morrison at Unforgiven, Miz continued to mock Matt Cappotelli’s faith, which understandably provoked an angry reaction from Michaels. The Smackdown superstar made a surprise trip to Raw to let The Miz know just how out of line he was to mock someone’s faith in the manner that he did, especially poking fun at Cappotelli given what he’s been through.

The Miz however didn’t take well to Michaels’ dressing down, and he responded by attacking him on Smackdown, only for Michaels to fire back by costing him the chance to become the Intercontinental Champion three days later. The Miz was furious and vowed to make a statement, challenging The Heartbreak Kid to a match at Survivor Series, both leading teams to face each other in a traditional elimination match. The Miz has put together a team he’s called ‘awesome’, a team full of future superstars like himself.

They include his rookie, Heath Slater and Smackdown’s Jack Swagger & Dolph Ziggler. Swagger has had an impressive start to his Smackdown career, defeating Bobby Lashley in a Best of 5 Series. Ziggler’s had less of an impact after losing to Elijah Burke at No Mercy, but since then he’s undefeated, even picking up the win for The Miz’s team on Raw in a six man tag match last week.

They’ll come up against a resurgent Kofi Kingston as well as Burke, who only defeated Ziggler last month at No Mercy. Completing Team H.B.K. is Bryan Danielson, an athlete Michaels has called one of the best in the world today. Danielson was trained by his captain and has made a strong reputation for himself having wrestled all over the world before arriving in the big leagues alongside his former mentor.

Only two nights’ ago, Michaels & Miz locked horns where Mr. Hollywood avoided tasting some sweet chin music by low blowing his opposing captain. Will he & his team be so lucky tonight and live up to their ‘awesome’ billing?





Hell in a Cell – Loser Leaves Town
The Big Show vs. John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield


There may not be a title at stake but much more is on the line when The Big Show & John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield meet inside Hell in a Cell as they both fight to save their careers.

Only seven months ago, The World’s Largest Athlete returned to the WWE, brought back by Mr. McMahon to join his sons, Shane & J.B.L. in The Corporation in their battle with Evolution. After initially helping the McMahon family even the score with them at Backlash, there were problems around the corner. With a shot at the WWE Championship up for grabs at Vengeance for the winner, Batista secured victory for Evolution before going on to win the title later on that night. However both J.B.L. & Big Show were given the opportunity to challenge The Animal for the title at SummerSlam inside the Elimination Chamber.

The cracks that had started to appear were blown wide open that night when Show accidentally nailed his Corporation ally with his trademark knockout punch, leading to J.B.L. being the first man eliminated. The shocked seven foot plus monster followed moments later and he fought his way back to the locker room with J.B.L. in front of the furious McMahon patriarch. It came as no surprise when Mr. McMahon stood by his son’s side, leading to Show turning his back on The Corporation with another killer punch. The McMahon men have tried desperately to take out the giant, but one by one he’s taking them apart.

He’s already put Shane in the hospital after a chokeslam through the announce table on Raw, and he almost chokeslammed the Chairman of the Board off the stage a couple of weeks ago. That was after he chokeslammed J.B.L. on to the steel steps, and only a change of heart stopped him sending Mr. McMahon off the stage and in to a whole world of suffering. This past week however, he was on the wrong end of a chokeslam as he declared his son was unable to compete at Survivor Series. J.B.L. was adamant about going through with his word and stepping inside Hell in a Cell but could only look on as Show slammed his father in to the mat.

One man’s career will come to an end tonight, but for whom will the bell toll? It’ll be hell for both, but for one it will be the end.





The Undertaker vs. Ted DiBiase

The bell will definitely toll for either The Big Show or J.B.L., but it may just toll for Ted DiBiase too when he steps through the gates of hell to take on The Undertaker.

From the moment he debuted on Raw the night after WrestleMania, DiBiase has claimed he is destined for greatness, and it’s been a bumpy ride for him that threatens to get even bumpier this evening in Toronto. In his short career so far, he’s already held both the Intercontinental & Million Dollar titles as well as sparking an investigation in to who left Eric Bischoff for dead when Raw’s Head of Authority was attacked backstage. It was DiBiase who attacked Bischoff when he rumbled Ted Jr & Sr’s plan to take the Intercontinental Championship from Kofi Kingston at SummerSlam.

The plan worked with Bischoff incapacitated, however unfortunately for DiBiase, Bischoff remembered who it was that attacked him that night, and he wasted no time in showing him who was boss on his return, resulting in him losing the title to Sheamus in a fatal fourway match. DiBiase was understandably angry, and instead of getting his rematch he demanded from Bischoff, he learned he had been given an opportunity to prove himself as the next John Cena he claimed he would be with a match fitting of his status at Survivor Series.

The identity of his opponent remained a secret until The Undertaker appeared on Raw, and despite his constant vow to dominate Raw for years to come, he wasn’t too happy at the prospect of facing The Undertaker. He accused Bischoff of trying to get revenge for the attack, but Bischoff has stated on many occasion that’s not the case. DiBiase though realised there was no way out of the match and he brought in some extra help in the shape of Ezekiel Jackson, and in the last few weeks, they’ve taken the fight to The Dead-Man.

This past week on Raw as the phenom was about to compete, DiBiase made his way out to the arena with his rookie and spoke of how the world was about to see what was going to happen to The Undertaker at Survivor Series. They took the fight to him, but he was up to it. Maryse however came to her boyfriend’s rescue, and her distraction was enough for them to eventually wear him down, and even after two trips to Dream Street, The Undertaker sat up and gave DiBiase the death stare that so many superstars have felt over the last twenty years.

DiBiase may regret not finishing the job, but he still has the opportunity to do so later on this evening. The question remains though whether he can do it or not, and if he will be able to step up to the level he feels he is at. The Dead-Man stands in his way and Ted’ll be in for the fight of his life, of that there can be no doubt.

Survivor Series Predictions

WWE Championship Triple-Threat Match with the WWE Champion Batista taking on Randy Orton and Triple H, as for who wins the Triple-Threat, I see it being the Age of Orton once again with Orton winning the WWE Championship pinning Triple H, to cause a re-match at Night of Champions between Orton and Batista, and it also takes Triple H out of the WWE Title picture

World Tag Team Championship Tournament Final Triple-Threat Match with Team Omega (Matt Hardy & Gregory Helms) vs. Rey Mysterio & Mistico vs. Christopher Daniels & Kaval, as for who wins, I see Mysterio & Mistico winning the World Tag Team Championship by winning this match becoming the new World Tag Team Champions

Team Cena vs. Team Punk, I see Team Cena winning this match with Cena getting his World Heavyweight Championship match at Night of Champions facing Punk for the title there

Team RAW vs Team Smackdown, Team Smackdown will win

Team HBK vs. Team Miz, I see Team Miz winning this match with Miz going over here at this event, by HBK putting him over

Big Show vs JBL Loser Leaves Town Match Hell in a Cell, career-threatening match for both men with both of these men's careers on the line in this match, winner stays in the WWE, loser leaves the WWE, as for who I think will win this match, Big Show will win with JBL leaving the WWE

Undertaker vs. Ted DiBiase, as for who wins this match here, I see it being Ted DiBiase with Undertaker putting him over, and then the rubber match being at the Royal Rumble with Undertaker going over

J.R.:
Welcome ev’ryone to the twen’y-second annual w-w-e Survivor Series, live from the Air Canada Center here in Toronto Canada, an’ what a night we’re in for. . . Joining me is my fellow Hall of Famer, Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler, an’ of course we’re joined by our colleagues from Smackdown, Michael Cole an’ Matt Striker.

Michael Cole: Thanks J-R. It promises t’ be one of the most exciting nights in recent hist’ry on a night like no other in the w-w-e calendar. There’ll be no less than three traditional elimination matches, an’ even though there won’t be any titles at stake in those matches, there is a whole lot at stake.

Matt Striker: That’s absolutely right. We have the battle of the brands where a team composed of both Raw and Smackdown superstars will compete with pride very much on the line.

Michael Cole: We’re also going t’ see the so called future of the w-w-e as claimed by The Miz when he leads his team in to battle against a team led by one of the all time greats who has a hist’ry at the Survivor Series, especially here in Canada, ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels.

Matt Striker: Shawn Michaels may well have caused contr’versy at the Survivor Series Michael but one man who caused some contr’versy of his own as recently as Friday night is the World Heavyweight Champion C-M Punk. T’night he will lead a team in to what will be nothing short of a war against a team led by the one an’ only John Cena.

Michael Cole: Well we thought that after what we saw and heard the other night, things couldn’t get anymore personal between these two teams, but we need t’ take you back to an incident earlier t’day when both Christian an’ Edge, who have been at each other’s throats ever since Christian returned earlier this year arrived at the arena.


*Video Promo*
Earlier Today

‘The Rated-R Superstar’ Edge was making his way from his car in the parking lot when another car drove in too and parked up a matter of feet away from him. Out of the car stepped his brother, ‘Captain Charisma’ Christian. The younger sibling was out of his car in a flash after the engine cut, staring right at Edge who stopped & stared right back at him with a big smirk on his face.


Edge: You ready f’ another defeat t’night bro, right here in our beautiful hometown? Gonna be embarrassin’ huh? Don’t worry though C’, they’re used to it.

Christian didn’t seem bothered by his brother’s dig, going towards the trunk which was already opened as he left the car.

Christian: Sorry t’ disappoint you but the only embarrassing thing around here’s you.

Edge: Is that right? Like I care what you think, just try not t’ let y’team down again like y’did the other night.

Christian: Yeah? Y’mean when you jumped me again? How about I turn my back right now, you gonna do it again ‘cause that’s the only way you fight these days, coward?

Captain Charisma tried to ignore his brother and walked to the trunk to get his bag out. Edge wasn’t happy and paced round after him, grabbing his arm and turning him round.

Edge: What’d you just call me? Say it t’ my face, I dare ya.

Christian: You goin’ deaf bro? What I said, I called you a coward. You got a problem with that?

Edge: You bet your ass I got a problem with that.

Christian: Yeah? Prove it.

Christian shoved his brother away, getting Edge flustered. The Rated-R Superstar fought back and nailed Christian with a right hand and the brothers came to blows. Christian grabbed Edge’s head and tried to drive it in to the outside of the trunk, but Edge blocked it and nailed him with a blow to the gut. The older sibling then grabbed Christian by the head and smashed his head against the outside of the trunk. He wasn’t done there though, and with Christian slumped against the trunk, Edge spotted an opportunity and grabbed the hood before bringing it crashing down against his brother’s back.

Christian immediately fell back on the floor of the parking lot and was screaming in pain with Edge looking on somewhat shocked, eventually smiling at his brother’s pain. We then cut to a shot later on when Christian was helped in to the back of an ambulance, still looking in some serious pain on a stretcher with Tazz watching, and as the door shut and the ambulance took off, the Smackdown General Manager shook his head, clearly pissed before stomping away.

walks out to the stage with a microphone in hand, and he still doesn’t look in the best of moods at all.


Tazz: After seein’ that footage, what I’ve got t’ say ain’t gonna come as much of a shock.

Obviously raging inside, Tazz keeps his cool as he prepares to say whatever it is he’s come out to say.

Tazz: You saw Christian taken away in an ambulance an’ the bottom line is he hurt his back pretty bad an’ he ain’t gonna be able t’ compete here t’night, an’ probably f’ the rest o’the year.

*Major Heat*

Tazz:
Trust me, I’m just as angry as you guys an’ it leaves me with a decision t’ make f’ the main event now John Cena’s team are a man down. Right now I’ve not made that decision but I will very soon, but I promise ya you’re still gonna see Cena’s an’ Punk’s teams go up against each other t’night. The main event is still on, don’t worry ‘bout that.

*Pop*

Tazz:
Right now I’m gonna head back there an’ come to a decision, an’ when I do, you’ll all know what it is. . . Once again, I’m sorry you’re not gonna get t’ see Christian t’night but you’re still gonna get y’main event an’ it’s gonna be a hell of a show I promise y’that. We’ve got some great action for ya an’ we’re gonna kick it off right now with what you only get at the Survivor Series. Enjoy the show folks.

Tazz turns round and heads towards the curtain. . .


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

The roof is almost blown off the Air Canada Center with a mixture of cheers & boos (largely cheers) as ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels hits the stage, shaking hands with Tazz on the way, followed by his team-mates, Kofi Kingston, Elijah Burke & Bryan Danielson.

Lilian Garcia:
This contest is a traditional Survivor Series elimination match where the winner will be determined when one team has been completely eliminated. . . Intr’ducing first, making their way t’ the ring, representing Team H-B-K; Kofi Kingston, Elijah Burke, Bryan Danielson an’ ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ SHAWN MI-CHAELS!

Team H.B.K. enter the ring one after another, all of them then heading to one of the four corners, climbing up to the second rope looking in to the crowd, all seeming to be very relaxed & confident with the team captain applauding the Toronto crowd. They then step down and come together in the ring, getting a gentle encouragement from Michaels, resulting in some fist bumps from all four men.

“AWE-SOME”

A ton of heat breaks out in the arena as the extremely focused looking Team Miz walk out to the stage, led by The Miz with Jack Swagger, Dolph Ziggler & Heath Slater, all stopping at the top of the ramp. They look in to the crowd, disgusted by their reaction and then down intently at their opponents before making their way slowly down the ramp to the ring.

Lilian Garcia:
And their opponents, the team of The Miz, Heath Slater, Jack Swagger an’ Dolph Ziggler; TEAM MIZ!

Michaels and his team all keep their eyes on their opponents as they take it turns walking up the steps and in to the ring, battle lines well & truly drawn with Team H.B.K. now looking ready for action too.


*The Opening Match*



Team H.B.K. (Shawn Michaels, Bryan Danielson, Kofi Kingston & Elijah Burke) w/Layla
vs. Team Miz (The Miz, Heath Slater, Jack Swagger & Dolph Ziggler)


Spoiler for Elimination Recaps:

Burke was in control of Slater and looking to put him away. He dragged the rookie up from his knees with Slater putting up no resistance as he was fired in to the ropes. Burke almost secured the first elimination by sending him crashing in to the canvas courtesy of a lifting spinning sit-down spinebuster. It looked all over and could’ve been had it not been for The Miz racing in to the ring to break up the count by stomping on Burke’s head to save his rookie.

It gave Slater a chance as he made it back up to his feet, pulling the groggy Burke up from his knees and whipping him in to the ropes. Slater though made the mistake of ducking his head, allowing Burke to kick him square in the kisser. Slater’s head snapped back up and Burke stomped him in the gut before planting him with the Elijah Experience to a big pop. Burke made the cover in a flash and picked up the fall to give Team H.B.K. the early advantage.

Elimination #1: Heath Slater by Elijah Burke

After being tagged back in to the match by Danielson, Burke went right after The Miz. Danielson had done serious damage on their opponent’s team captain. Miz battled his way back up to his feet but was sent back down by a clothesline from a fired-up Burke. He wasn’t done there and sent Miz in to the ropes, then connected with a perfect standing dropkick to put The Miz back on the mat. Miz was struggling and crawled the short distance to the corner, and as he used the ropes to help him back up, Burke ran at him and hit a Stinger Splash.

With the fans cheering as Burke stepped back out of the corner, Miz staggered out in to a kick to the gut and a Perfect Plex, but managed to get his shoulder up at the count of two. Burke smelt blood and had The Miz on the brink, pulling him right back up and firing him with force in to the corner. He pulled down his knee pads and got ready to hit the Elijah Express with the fans cheering and the rest of Team H.B.K. getting right behind him.

He went speeding in at Miz but Mr. Hollywood threw himself to safety at the last second as Burke crashed in to the pads. Battle scarred, Miz crawled across the mat on his knees and made the tag to the pumped up Ziggler. The Smackdown superstar flew through the ropes as Burke tried to make it back up to his feet. As he did though, Ziggler charged across the ring and planted him with the Zig Zag, then hooked both legs to even things up and eliminate his former foe.

Elimination #2: Elijah Burke by Dolph Ziggler


Closing Minutes: The Heartbreak Kid hits the ring and goes right after Ziggler, running at him for a clothesline. Ziggler ducks it and Michaels runs through off the ropes, comes back and connects with a flying forearm. He flips up to a big pop, still with some typical Canadian boos he’s used to as Ziggler tries to pick himself back up. Michaels helps him up from his knees and scoop slams him right back down to the canvas. The fans are still cheering as The Showstopper heads to the corner and the dizzy heights of the top rope, getting a bigger reaction from the crowd.

The Miz doesn’t like what he sees coming and can only look on as Michaels dives off the top and drops his elbow across Ziggler’s chest. Dolph’s in trouble now and Michaels takes another trip to the corner, full of momentum as he starts to tune up the band. Some of the fans are stomping their feet in the stands as the unsuspecting Ziggler claws his way back up on to his knees. Miz panics and storms the ring, racing in and Michaels sees him. He switches gears and LEVELS MIZ WITH SOME SWEET CHIN MUSIC!!!. . . . . Miz falls to the deck and rolls out of the ring, but Michaels isn’t done and turns round.

Ziggler makes it back up and turns round to see Shawn coming at him for a SUPER KICK!!!. . . . . NO! Ziggler ducks it and grabs Michaels around the head, trying to lock in a SLEEPER HOLD!!. . . . . He can’t though and Michaels pushes him back in to the pads, getting himself free of his opponent. Shawn steps to the side as Ziggler staggers out, and The Heartbreak Kid climbs up to the second rope and all the way to the top. He turns his head to see Dolph turning round and leaps in to action with an ASAI MOONSAULT!!. . . . . He hits it and takes Dolph down, landing on top of him for a cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Ziggler kicks out. Both men pick themselves back up and Michaels blocks a kick to the gut, holding on to Ziggler’s boot and sweeps his left leg too. H.B.K’s on top and he’s got the audacity to go for the SHARPSHOOTER!!!. . . . . It’s divided the crowd with a whole host of cheers & boos ringing round the Air Canada Center as Michaels turns Ziggler on to his back, putting him through hell. Ziggler screams in pain, stretching his arm out to try and get near the ropes, but he’s nowhere near.

He has to fight and with his team facing him, giving him some much needed encouragement, he does fight, trying desperately trying to drag himself towards the ropes and his team. Michaels holds firm as Dolph continues to suffer, fighting with everything he’s got, getting closer & closer. Miz leans over the ropes and urges him to keep on going, and he does, dragging himself to within touching distance. He stretches his arm out for dear life and grabs hold of the bottom rope to the joy of his team captain & Swagger.

Michaels calmly stands back up and heads over to his team’s corner to tag in Kofi with Ziggler crawling towards his own team with both Miz & Swagger urging him to do so, seeing Kofi step through the ropes. Kofi though races across the ring and pulls him away and up to his feet. The Jamaican Sensation fires Dolph in to the ropes and hits him with a jumping heel kick. The fans cheer as Dolph fights his way back up to his feet, still struggling as Kofi also stands back up to send Ziggler in to the corner.

The Jamaican wastes no time at all and runs in at him with speed and jumps up to the second rope to hammer Dolph with a flurry of right hands to a big pop. He looks in to the crowd, all cheering him on and then jumps back down before monkey flipping him out of the corner and down to the mat. Kofi’s in control now and sees his opportunity as he gets back up. Ziggler lies in the middle of the ring, helpless as Kofi comes back off the ropes to hit the BOOM DROP!!. . . . . Both Kofi’s legs are driven in to Ziggler’s chest and Kofi shifts around to make the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

Ziggler gets the shoulder up but Kofi’s not downhearted, not at all. He hurries back up to his feet and watches as Dolph rolls on to his side. Kofi takes a couple of steps back and keeps his eyes fixed firmly on Ziggler, getting ready to explode. He gets anxious, desperate to strike, and as Dolph makes it back up and turns round, Kofi leaps up in to the air, TROUBLE IN PARADISE!!!. . . . . But no, Ziggler ducks it and Kofi hits the deck. Ziggler’s a relieved man, and as Kofi stands back up, both men turn round to face each other and Ziggler strikes, NAILING KOFI WITH AN ENZUIGIRI!!. . . . . Kofi just falls flat on his face as an intense Ziggler, scurries on his knees to turn him over on to his back and hook the leg for a cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Kofi lifts his shoulder up, much to the anger & frustration of Ziggler. He stares down with contempt at Kofi but still looking worse for wear, he heads over to his corner to tag in The All-American American. Swagger’s in no mood to wait around and flies through the ropes, going right after the dazed Jamaican on the canvas. Swagger grabs him by the boot and turns him over on to his chest again, locking in the ANKLE LOCK!!!. . . . . Kofi’s in pain, screaming in agony as the incredibly focused youngster tortures him, much to the satisfaction of The Miz and the recovering Ziggler.

It’s the turn of Team H.B.K. to support their man, and they do. Kofi’s struggling but fights it as much as he can, dragging himself by his nails across the mat towards the ropes. Swagger doesn’t look happy at all and doesn’t let him get there easily, but Kofi’s fighting for his life and can see the light. Swagger though doesn’t let him get there and pulls him away, but Kofi comes back at him and turns himself over on to his back and kicks up at Swagger.

He frees himself as Swagger falls back, and both men make their way back up. Swagger’s up first and Kofi’s not finding it easy on his feet, giving Swagger the chance to stomp him in the gut. The All-American American pulls him in to his body by the waist, lifts him up off the mat and sends him crashing back down to the canvas with a GUT-WRENCH SUPLEX!!. . . . . Kofi’s back on the mat and Swagger jumps on top of him to make a cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

Kofi gets the shoulder up and Swagger isn’t happy, shaking his head as he leans back on to his knees. He stands back up and drags Kofi by the feet over to the corner, then climbs his way up to the second rope, keeping his back to his opponent and the ring before coming off the ropes for a CORNER SLINGSHOT SPLASH!!. . . . . NO, KOFI LIFTS HIS KNEES UP IN TO SWAGGER’S GUT!!. . . . . The fans love it as The All-American American rolls around on the mat clutching his stomach with the fans cheering.

Both men are hurting as they struggle back up to their feet and Swagger manages to reverse a whip to the corner, sending Kofi in to the pads. Swagger takes a quick breath and charges in at him, right in to a PENDULUM KICK COUNTER FROM KOFI!!. . . . . Swagger’s sent out of the corner clutching his stomach once more as Kofi climbs up to the summit with the fans cheering the Jamaican on. He watches on intently as Swagger turns round, then leaps through the air for a DIVING CROSS BODY!!!. . . . . Kofi lands on top of Swagger and reaches to the side to hook his leg as the ref drops to his knees to make the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Swagger kicks out, disappointing the Toronto natives greatly. Neither are down for long and they rush up to their feet as quickly as they can with Kofi feeding his boot in to Swagger for an enzuigiri, but Swagger holds on to it and once again tries to apply the ANKLE LOCK!!!. . . . . Kofi doesn’t let him get it locked in this time and turns over to kick up at him again in the face, sending Swagger back pedalling. Kofi’s back up in a flash, and as Swagger turns round, he’s livid and runs at him with fury, but right in to the TROUBLE IN PARADISE!!!. . . . . A big pop breaks out and Kofi flies across the mat to turn Swagger, who’s not moving over on to his back to make the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3!

Elimination #3: Jack Swagger by Kofi Kingston

Swagger rolls out of the ring as Kofi picks himself back up, but he has no time to react as The Miz races across the ring to club him across the back. Kofi drops to his knees but the focused team captain pulls his fellow Raw superstar back up, only to send him down to the mat courtesy of a NECKBREAKER!!. . . . . The Miz wastes no time whatsoever as he shimmies round on the mat to make a cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Kofi gets the shoulder up, making the angry Miz even angrier. He stands back up and urges Kofi to do the same, but he’s not finding it easy as he rolls on to his side. The Miz loses patience and drags him back up himself, then fires him with fury in to the turnbuckle pads. He runs right at him, jumping up at him for a clothesline and ends up sitting on the second rope. With a sadistic look on his face, The Miz stares in to the crowd as Kofi falls forward, flat on his knees and down to the mat.

The Miz goes back to work and grabs Kofi’s arm, then pulls him away from the ropes before dropping to the mat himself and applying an armbar submission hold. He yanks away at Kofi’s arm, trying to make him suffer, almost looking possessed as Kofi lies there struggling to fight the hold. The fans get behind him again, chanting his name and clapping, and both Michaels & Danielson will him on too. It helps and Kofi fights the hold, and The Miz isn’t happy.

He keeps the hold locked in as Kofi pulls himself to the side across the mat, getting towards the ropes and grabbing hold of it to a big pop. Miz is livid and jumps back up to his feet. He drags Kofi back up and tries to pull him away from the ropes, but Kofi shoves him away, getting Miz even hotter under the collar as he charges right back at him. Kofi steps out and ducks under the outstretched arm, turns round and connects with the S.O.S.!! . . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . . NO!

The Miz kicks out and both men race their way back up to a vertical base with Kofi ducking a wild right hand and hitting the ropes for a SPRINGBOARD REVERSE CROSS BODY, HOLDING ON FOR A COVER!! . . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

Miz powers out and Kofi rushes back up to his feet, stepping back in to his corner to tag in Danielson. The fans cheer as Danielson flies in to the ring with Miz back up. The American Dragon runs at him and connects with a JUMPING HIGH KNEE!. . . . . Miz falls to the deck but isn’t down for long. He picks himself back up with Danielson looking to gain some serious momentum.

He does just that and whips Miz in to the corner, wasting no time at all to run at him, nailing him with a DROPKICK AGAINST THE CHEST!!. . . . . The fans love it as Danielson races back up to his feet and Miz steps out in pain, right in to Danielson’s clutches and a REGAL-PLEX!!. . . . . Holding on for the cover, the ref rushes across to make the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

Shoulder up from The Miz! Danielson takes it on the chin and goes right back to work, shimmying round on the canvas to apply BODY SCISSORS!!. . . . . The Dragon squeezes the life & breath out of Miz’s body who has nowhere to go. Again the fans cheer as Danielson does everything he can to make The Miz tap, but he’s stubborn and refuses to give up. He’s not going anywhere though and Ziggler sees the danger his captain’s in. He storms the ring and stamps on Danielson’s torso, breaking the hold to a chorus of boos inside the arena.

Michaels & Kofi don’t like it but the ref takes control of the situation and sees him back on to the apron. Danielson has some cobwebs to shake off as he tries to get back up to his feet, and so does The Miz. Danielson’s up first and helps The Miz up but gets a shot to the chest for his troubles. Mr. Hollywood grabs his opponent by the wrist and sends him in to the ropes, but as Danielson comes back, he comes back with a bang, jumping up for TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS BUT HOLDS ON FOR A GUILLOTINE CHOKE TO A HUGE ROAR FROM THE CANADIAN CROWD!!!. . . . .

Miz is in big time trouble as the intense Danielson chokes the life out of Miz, and again Ziggler steps through the ropes, but this time Kofi’s there’s to see him off, racing across to take him down with a SPINNING WHEEL KICK!!. . . . . It sends Ziggler under the bottom rope and down to the floor as the fans chant for The Miz to tap. He clings on but Danielson isn’t letting up, giving The Miz no chance but to tap out, setting off another big pop from the crowd.

Elimination #4: The Miz by Bryan Danielson

The Miz rolls across the ring under the bottom rope and down to the floor as Ziggler sits up on the other side to see he’s got a mountain to climb all by himself, amusing Danielson in the ring as he looks down at the very downbeat looking figure of Ziggler. He hesitantly makes his way back up and crawls back under the bottom rope. The Dragon allows him to stand up and walk towards him as they go in to a collar & elbow tie-up. Ziggler gets the better of it and pulls him in to a side headlock but Danielson pushes him in to the ropes. Ziggler comes back with some fight and slides through Danielson’s legs and races back up to his feet.

They turn to face each other and Dolph nails Danielson with a right hand, putting him down on to one knee. Ziggler turns back and runs the ropes. As he comes back though, Danielson catches him with an extended elbow. It puts Ziggler down and The Dragon jumps right on him to lock in a TRIANGLE CHOKE!!!. . . . . The crowd erupts again as Danielson this time chokes the life out of Ziggler, who’s clearly in agony on the mat but fights for his life, scrapping his way out of the hold. Danielson, back on his feet reaches down to help Ziggler up, but Dolph sits up and rolls him in to an INSIDE CRADLE!! . . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Kick out from Danielson. They both pick themselves back up with Danielson the brighter, ducking a wild right from Dolph and grabbing him by the arm, wrenching away at it, forcing him down to the mat in the LEBELL LOCK!!!. . . . . It’s getting loud inside the Air Canada Center as Ziggler battles for survival, barely clinging on with Danielson torturing him. Again the crowd chant for the heel to tap but he’s brave and desperately reaches his arm out, trying to drag himself across the canvas. Somehow he manages to pull himself slowly across with Danielson trying to hold on. He looks shocked as Ziggler, with everything he has manages to claw his way to the ropes and to safety.

The fans can’t believe it and boo, but he looks all but done as he throws himself on to the bottom rope. Danielson sits up, surprised to see Dolph survive, not that it’s doing a lot for him now. Danielson turns back and smiles at his corner, then stands back up. He walks over to Shawn & Kofi and looks in to the crowd, pointing at Michaels. Most are cheering and Danielson holds out his hand for the captain to slap his hand and tag his way in to the match.

The Heartbreak Kid casually steps through the ropes in to the ring to a loud response from the divided Canadian crowd, although it’s largely in favour of Michaels as Ziggler pulls himself up by the ropes. H.B.K. tunes up the band, and again the fans are stomping their feet and clapping as the oblivious Ziggler steps away from the ropes and turns round to see Michaels explode out of the corner and connect with some SWEET CHIN MUSIC!!!. . . . . A huge pop with some cheers meets it as Ziggler collapses in a heap and Michaels falls on top of him, hooking the leg to make the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

YES, IT’S ALL OVER!!!

Elimination #5: Dolph Ziggler by Shawn Michaels

“Sexy Boy” blasts out to another huge roar with Kofi & Danielson joining their captain and fellow survivor in the ring to get their arms raised in victory. Ziggler rolls out of the ring, leaving the victors the ring and they all exchange brief guy hugs with Michaels then applauding the crowd again. He again congratulates his team-mates before leaving the ring, followed by the extremely happy duo who head back up the ramp slapping the hands of the fans in the front row.


Winners: Team H.B.K.

Survivors: Shawn Michaels, Bryan Danielson & Kofi Kingston.


*Cut Backstage*


Smackdown’s General Manager, Tazz is pacing through the halls of the arena with a handful of security officers following him, clearly still in a bad mood as he stops at one of the locker room doors. He tightens his tie and opens the door, walking straight in, and we hear some laughing as the camera follows him in. Team Punk (CM Punk, Chris Jericho, Shelton Benjamin, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez & Edge) stand there laughing amongst themselves when Tazz coughs to get their attention, and they seemingly are in too good a mood to care about their boss’s presence.


CM Punk: Hey, how’s it goin’ boss? It’s gonna be a good night right?

Tazz: Cut the crap Punk, this ain’t a social visit. You know why I’m here.

CM Punk: Really, why’s that? Something happened has it?

Tazz: Yeah, as you well know thanks t’ your buddy there.

Tazz stares right at Edge, letting him know full well he’s not happy about what he did to Christian earlier.

CM Punk: Oh right, now you mention it, I did hear something happened earlier on to. . . Christian was it? I wouldn’t worry, he’s a tough son of a bitch.

The General Manager turns back to Punk, not amused at all.

Tazz: You set this up did y’champ?

CM Punk: Y’know, all jokes aside, I didn’t. Still, y’have t’ admit, in my shoes, it’s kind o’funny.

Tazz: Funny? Y’think this is funny? (Turns to Edge) What about you Edge? I bet you think it’s hilarious right that Christian’s in the hospital an’ not here?

Edge: As it happens, yeah, yeah I do. He got in my face an’ he paid the price. You wanna blame anyone, blame him. He called me out an’ I took him out, end of story.

Tazz: Well unlike you he ain’t here so I guess I’m stuck with you, an’ thanks t’ you we’re a man down f’ the main event, so guess what? I’m gonna even it up. You’ve got the night off.

All five members of Team Punk look stunned.

CM Punk: What?

Edge: Yeah, what?

Tazz: Did I not make it clear enough f’ you guys? You took Christian out so I’m takin’ you out, it’s that simple. But hey, this is your home town right? Go see y’family or catch up with some buddies, I don’t care just as long as you get the hell out of here.

Edge: I ain’t goin’ anywhere.

Tazz: See I thought you might say that so I brought a few guys with me just in case.

Everyone looks confused as Tazz turns his head to the door.

Tazz: Come on in guys.

All eyes are on the door as the security team walk on in with Edge shaking his head, not happy at all.

Tazz: You gonna walk out or are they gonna throw you out? Your call dog.

The Rated-R Superstar glares furiously at his boss, realising he’s got no choice.

Edge: Fine I’ll go but you’re gonna regret this, boss.

Tazz: Yeah I doubt it, just get out o’here.

Punk steps forward and tries to stop his team-mate.

CM Punk: Wait, you don’t have t’ go anywhere.

Tazz: I think you’ll find he does.

Tazz steps forward and pushes Punk back, looking right at Edge.

Tazz: What y’waitin’ for?

The rest of Team Punk look on as Edge gives Tazz another dirty look before walking past the security team who part for him to walk through and out of the room.

Tazz: Thanks guys.

The security guys do as they’re told and leave as Tazz then follows, turning back and looking at Team Punk.

Tazz: Hey, I almost f’got. Good luck though t’night fellas.

The General Manager leaves the room with the camera zooming in on an angry CM Punk staring a hole through the door.


*Cut to Ringside*


*Match #2*



The Undertaker
vs. Ted DiBiase w/Ezekiel Jackson & Maryse

Closing Minutes:
DiBiase looks all over the place as he pulls himself up by the ropes and The Undertaker’s eyes are locked on his opponent, no sympathy shown whatsoever. Taker looks ready to strike and DiBiase doesn’t have a clue. He turns round against the ropes and the dead-man charges across the ring to send him over the top with a clothesline, sending his opponent down to the floor by the ramp. Maryse isn’t liking this, looking very worried for her boyfriend as he hits the floor. She walks over to him and tries to see how he is as he sits up, trying to get up on his knees.

Still the phenom stares coldly at his opponent, and as he sees DiBiase picking himself back up, he turns back in to the ropes and runs across the mat, then DIVES OVER THE TOP, BUT MARYSE PULLS TED OUT OF THE WAY AND THE DEAD-MAN HITS THE FLOOR!. . . . . The fans are stunned, some shown looking concerned as he lifts his head up off the arena floor with DiBiase breathing a sigh of relief and climbing back in the ring under the bottom rope. The ref’s count reaches five and Taker’s in danger of getting counted out.

He manages to claw his way up on to all fours and drags himself closer to the apron and reaches up to grab hold of it with DiBiase watching intently, hoping & praying his rival doesn’t make it back in, but he does, just! The youngster’s on him in a flash though and stomps all over the veteran, putting the boots to the phenom with Maryse shouting on, encouraging DiBiase as he drops to his knees and hammers away at Taker’s head.

He pummels him furiously with a flurry of right hands, showing some real aggression with Taker defenceless on the mat. Ted lets up but not for long, pulling Taker away from the ropes by his feet and heading to the second rope. Eyes firmly fixed with intent on his opponent, Ted Jr steps off the ropes and connects with a delayed falling fist drop to the head. DiBiase doesn’t mess about, shifting round on the canvas to hook Taker’s leg, going for the cover. . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

The dead-man gets his shoulder up, not going down well with the very focused youngster. Ted clearly believes he’s in with a shout as he sits up and then stands up, staring down at his squirming opponent. DiBiase steps back and waits with intent as Taker pulls himself back up to his feet. DiBiase runs past him in to the ropes behind the dead-man, bounces off and comes back to knock Taker down to his knees again with a clothesline. Taker’s right back up though and DiBiase grabs him by the wrist, looking to send him in to the corner.

Taker reverses it though and it’s DiBiase whose back hits the pads to a slight pop. The Undertaker takes a quick breath before running in at him, but no. DiBiase comes back at him and lifts his boot up in to his opponent’s face, sending Taker staggering away from the corner. Ted doesn’t mess about and pulls himself up to the second rope, and as Taker turns back round to face the corner, DiBiase dives off to take the phenom off his feet with a double foot stomp to the chest. Again he scurries across on his knees to make the cover as the ref drops to his to make the count. . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

No! Taker kicks out again to leave DiBiase frustrated. DiBiase isn’t happy at all and stands up in a huff, watching closely as The Undertaker gets to his knees. Ted shifts behind him and lifts his own arms up, seemingly stalking his opponent for the Million Dollar Dream. The fans realise the danger their favourite could be in, not that he has a clue as he unwittingly makes it up to his feet.

Ted jumps on him and tries to apply the deadly submission hold. Taker doesn’t let him though and slips behind him to put him in a sleeper, but wait! DiBiase escapes this time, turning behind Taker to take him down with a NECKBREAKER! DiBiase thinks he has it wrapped up and hooks the leg for the cover. . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

NO! Again The Undertaker kicks out, living to fight another day to the complete dismay of DiBiase. He can’t believe it as he sits up and looks over at the ref, wondering what it’s going to take to put Taker away. The phenom is already moving, making matters worse for DiBiase, who’s thrust in to action. He stands up and tries to bring his opponent with him, pulling him up to his knees before turning back to run the ropes. As he comes running back, Taker comes to life, catching him by surprise to lift him up off his feet and plant him with a SIDEWALK SLAM!!. . . . . For the first time in a while the fans are cheering as DiBiase’s back is driven with force in to the mat. Taker looks to take advantage, hooking the leg as the fans count out loud with the ref making the count. . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

No, shoulder up from DiBiase. The young upstart shows some resilience, but Taker goes right back to work. He makes his way back up to a vertical base and reaches down to bring Ted up with him, firing him in to the corner. DiBiase hits the pads and Taker comes charging at him in a flash, but Ted steps out and to the side to see Taker run right in to the pads. The phenom staggers round but Ted is right on him, hammering him with a couple of right hands and then steps on to the second rope where he continues to pummel him with more hard right hands to the skull.

DiBiase smirks in to the crowd, getting some heat from the fans as he half gloats, but he’s in for a shock as Taker comes to life. He grabs Ted by the tights and lifts him up in the air to a massive pop with Maryse panicking big time on the outside as she looks on to see Taker walking out of the corner with DiBiase high above his head. The fans are cheering like mad as Taker slams DiBiase in to the mat with the LAST RIDE!!!. . . . . DiBiase is down & out with the fans continuing to cheer and Maryse can only look on as Taker drops to his knees to hook the leg with the fans again counting in tandem with ref’s count. . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! DiBiase just about gets his shoulder up to the shock of the fans and the relief of Maryse and the emotionless figure of Ezekiel Jackson. Even the phenom looks somewhat surprised by Ted’s resilience to kick out of that one. He doesn’t show any remorse though and stands back up, raising his right hand up in the air, getting ready it would seem for a chokeslam. Again the fans cheer and Maryse panics in a big way, this time jumping up on to the apron.

She quickly catches the attention of the referee who makes his way over to her and tells her to get down as Taker stays where he is and focuses on DiBiase as he claws his way up to his knees. Taker walks closer towards him as he gets ready to pounce, but with the ref’s back turned, DiBiase rises up on his knees and low blows his opponent to a ton of heat. The fans’ boos echo round the arena as Taker falls to the mat. Maryse steps down, a lot calmer now as the ref turns around, slightly surprised to see Taker down on the mat.

DiBiase though is still in a bad way with the effects of the Last Ride. As he makes it back up to his feet, Taker is trying to join him, pulling himself up to his knees. Ted tries to give him a helping hand but soon regrets it as Taker reverses an irish whip. DiBiase though hits the ropes and holds on to them, smirking at Taker in the process. The dead-man doesn’t appreciate it one bit and runs at him, but right in to a raised elbow from DiBiase.

It sends Taker staggering away from the ropes, and Ted’s got a look of determination on his face, and as Taker turns round, he runs at him looking to hit him with a clothesline. Taker ducks it though and DiBiase nails the referee, putting the ref down. Ted looks stunned and gazes down at the ref, but the phenom is focused firmly on his opponent. Ted slowly turns round and Taker grabs him around the throat to a huge roar from the Toronto crowd. Ted can’t fight back this time and The Undertaker plants him with a ferocious CHOKESLAM!!!. . . . .

The dead-man drops to his knees and goes for the cover, then realises there’s no one there to make the count. He leans back on his knees, not too happy but then calmly stands back up with DiBiase barely moving, lifting his head up off the mat with his eyes all over the place. He’s in seriously bad shape, and Maryse knows it. She walks round on the floor and climbs up on to the apron again, shouting over at The Undertaker, hoping to get his attention. She does, and this time he’s not impressed. With the ref down, the dead-man menacingly walks in her direction to a big pop.

She shows no fear and hurls insults at the dangerous veteran. The dead-man looks at her right in the eye, staring straight in to her soul and unsettling her, big time. She realises the danger she’s in, but Jackson slips in to the ring behind them to a ton of heat. The phenom realises something’s up and turns round to see DiBiase’s rookie running at him and steps out in to a thunderous clothesline. The equally menacing Jackson drags him right back up and in to position for the Book of Ezekiel, a urinage and sends Taker crashing in to the canvas.

The boos are deafening and they ring round the arena and Jackson’s work isn’t done as he grabs his groggy mentor by the arm and drags him over on top of The Undertaker who isn’t moving at all. One man who is though is the referee, coming to life as Jackson leaves the ring. The ref turns round and sees DiBiase on top of Taker, then drags himself across the mat, albeit slowly and makes the count, again slowly, still dazed as his hand comes down on to the mat. . . .

1. . . . .

. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO! Taker gets his shoulder up to a massive pop inside the Air Canada Center! Maryse can’t believe it and drives her hands in to the apron with Jackson shaking his head ever so slightly. Ted lifts his head up and looks over in desperation at the referee, only to see the ref signal the count of two. DiBiase’s gutted and doesn’t know how to react. Maryse gets his attention and shouts out some much needed encouragement, and he gets back on track. He drags himself up to his feet, and by the time he gets back up, Taker too is trying to do the same.

DiBiase stares down at him, eyes fixed firmly on his rival. As Taker makes it back up, DiBiase shifts round behind him and grabs his arms, locking in THE MILLION DOLLAR DREAM!!!. . . . . He’s got it locked in this time and Taker tries to escape the hold, but can’t. Maryse gets right behind her man as Ted does everything he can to finish the job, and it looks like Taker’s faltering, his head dropping. The fans try to turn it around for him, shouting his name to the frustration of DiBiase, but it works. Taker comes fighting back, his head rising as DiBiase holds on for dear life.

It’s not enough though as Taker overpowers the grip to free his arms. The fans are going nuts again as Taker blocks a desperate right hand to connect with one of his own and then a headbutt to put Ted on his knees. Taker helps him back up and turns back to run the ropes, comes running back at the groggy DiBiase, but Ted throws a wild right at him. Ted misses and Taker runs through to come back this time with a flying clothesline to another big cheer. Both men pick themselves back up with the fans still cheering.

DiBiase’s reeling as Taker looks to keep the momentum going, scooping him off the mat and over his shoulder. He heads to the corner and drops DiBiase by his head on to the top turnbuckle. DiBiase’s in dreamland as Taker turns back in to the ropes, bouncing off them to come racing back and drive his massive boot down Ted’s throat. Again the fans cheer the phenom who’s well in control right now with the ref, back on his feet shakes off his cobwebs. Taker steps back and pulls down the straps as the starry eyed DiBiase tries to pull himself back up to his feet.

Maryse & Jackson look on, Maryse worrying big time, and Taker lifts his right hand up, getting ready for a chokeslam. DiBiase manages to make it back up, unaware of what’s waiting for him and Taker makes his move. He steps forward and grabs his opponent by the throat to a big pop, then turns around away from the corner to plant his rival with the CHOKESLAM!!!. . . . . It looks all over but Taker doesn’t go for a cover and instead brings his arm across his throat, signalling that the end is near!

DiBiase isn’t moving and Maryse can only look on helplessly as Taker reaches down to drag him the dead weight body of his opponent up to his feet, scooping him up on to his shoulder for the TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER!!!. . . . . The end is in sight but Ted comes to life and wriggles around on Taker’s back, sliding down to safety and react in a flash to send the phenom to DREAM STREET!!!. . . . . DiBiase just connected with his finisher and Taker looks out for count. Still groggy but full of hope, DiBiase hurries to turn Taker over on to his back and make a cover for the ref to count the fall. . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO!

The Undertaker gets his shoulder up to an enormous roar that makes its way through the whole crowd with DiBiase staring at the ref in absolute shock. Maryse can’t believe it, leaning against the ropes with her head in her hands. Ted blames the ref and tries to convince him it was three, maybe even convince himself, but to his horror, Taker sits back up and grabs him by the throat to another massive pop. Maryse looks stunned and Jackson jumps up on to the apron as Taker stands up and shoves Ted down to the mat before running at Jackson to knock him off the apron with a big boot.

Taker turns round and sees Ted getting back up, and again signals for the end. He walks across and scoops him off his feet and in to position for the TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER!!!. . . . . It’s deafening inside the Air Canada Center as Taker turns round to face the camera and drops to his knees, drilling DiBiase’s head in to the mat to an enormous roar. Ted’s body falls back and down to the mat as Taker crosses his arms for the cover. . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3!

DING DING DING!

“Rest in Peace” plays with the fans still cheering as Taker leans back on to his knees with Maryse not happy. Taker glares across at her and the lights go out with some purple & white spotlights shining down on the ring as Taker poses for the fans on one knee.


Winner: The Undertaker by pinfall.


*Cut Backstage*


Josh Matthews
is standing by outside one of the locker rooms.

Josh Matthews: I’m outside the locker room of John Cena and I’m hoping to speak with him ahead of t’night’s main event where he’ll be looking to win a shot at C-M Punk’s World Heavyweight Championship at Night of Champions should he lead his team t’ vict’ry later on against Team Punk.

Josh turns round and knocks on the door, waiting patiently for a response. It doesn’t take too long as John Cena opens the door, a very serious looking John Cena as he looks at Josh.

John Cena: What can I do f’ya Josh?

Josh Matthews: I was just hoping to get a quick word from you about your match t’night if that’s alright?

John Cena: Sure but make it quick.

Cena turns his head round, looking back inside.

John Cena: I won’t be long fellas.

Cena steps outside and lets the door close behind him.

John Cena: Go ahead Josh.

Josh Matthews: Well I wanna start off talking about what many people are talking about since Friday night on Smackdown where C-M Punk spoke quite frankly it has t’ be said, saying some very strong things about you. I wan’ed t’ get your response to those comments an’ ask if it’s made you feel any diff’rently about the match t’night?

John Cena: I said I was gonna make it quick an’ I am, so here it is. The way I see it is ev’ryone’s entitled t’ their opinion. Punk can say whatever he wants, it don’t mean I have to agree with it but that’s what he thinks, an’ hell, a lot o’people feel the same way he does. If I let it bother me Josh, I wouldn’t still be here. I just get on with my business like I’m going to t’night. All I’m thinkin’ about is leading my team in there t’ vict’ry later on t’ get a shot at Punk’s world title come Night of Champions. That’s all that matters right now Josh, an’ if that happens, I’ll deal with Punk. . . trust me, an’ let’s just say I won’t be waitin’ f’ Night of Champions.

Josh Matthews: Also, I quickly wanna get your thoughts on what happened earlier t’ Christian an’ the news that Edge won’t. . .

John Cena: . . . Makes no diff’rence. Four on four, five on five, ten against ten, it’s the same thing Josh. All we can do is win, an’ we’re gonna give it our best shot t’ do just that.

Josh Matthews: Alright, thanks John. Good luck.

John Cena: No worries man.

Cena heads back inside the locker room.

Josh Matthews: In case you’re just tuning in, t’night’s match between Team Cena an’ Team Punk will now be four on four, as earlier t’day, Christian an’ Edge were involved in an altercation in the parking lot which led to Christian being taken to a local medical facility here in Toronto. We later received word that Christian has suffered an injury to his back that will keep him out of action for t’night at the very least an’ maybe for the rest of the year too. Smackdown’s General Manager Tazz then not so long ago removed Edge from the match later on, telling him to leave the building which he has. It seems that there’ll be no end to the controversy since John Cena’s arrival on Smackdown, but ultimately it all comes down to the elimination match later on that’ll decide whether or not John Cena will or will not earn a title shot against C-M Punk for Night of Champions. There’s already been some action between those teams t’night but there’s more t’ come later on. For now though it’s back t’ ringside.


*Cut to Ringside*


*Match #3*




Team Raw (Sheamus (cpt), John Morrison, Carlito, Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig) w/Eddie Colon & Melina
vs. Team Smackdown (M.V.P. (cpt), Ron Killings, Paul London, Brian Kendrick & Santino Marella)


Spoiler for Elimination Recaps:

Cody was on top of Santino and went looking to drop a pointed knee down on to the Italian, only for the plucky Marella to roll to the side and dodge the bullet. The crowd got behind Santino as he stood up along with Rhodes and took him straight back down after an STO. He could only get a two count though, but Cody stayed down on the mat as Santino went up high, up to the top rope, looking to hit a diving headbutt. Rhodes though rolled to safety this time, and as they both picked themselves back up, Cody connected with a springboard kick to the Italian’s head. It was enough for a three count and eliminate Santino, giving Team Raw the early advantage.

Elimination #1: Santino Marella by Cody Rhodes

Team Smackdown came fighting back, mainly through the temporarily reunited team of London & Kendrick. The latter was on fire and seemed destined to eliminate Hennig with the Sliced Bread, only the son of Mr. Perfect managed to throw him down to the mat after Kendrick had run up the ropes. It gave Hennig the chance to further increase his team’s advantage, and as Kendrick made his way back up to his feet, Hennig was ready to strike. He ran right at him, but Kendrick caught him out of nowhere with one hell of a super kick to level the scores.

Elimination #2: Joe Hennig by Brian Kendrick

Smackdown’s team had gained some serious momentum, and just as it looked like they were about to turn their numbers in their favour, Morrison managed to get his shoulder up after a suplex dropped in to a cutter by the fired-up Killings. The Truth took it on the chin though, going right back to work and sizing the weary Monday Night Delight up for the scissor kick. As he backed off the ropes and came back looking to finish JoMo off, Morrison ducked it and reacted immediately to run the ropes and level Killings with a springboard enzuigiri.

Morrison turned the tide in his team’s favour and went up to the summit with the crowd cheering, expecting to see Starship Pain. Unfortunately for Team Raw & Morrison, that didn’t happen and Killings lifted his knees up in to Morrison’s stomach, reaching up straight away before Morrison had the chance to hit the mat, rolling him in to an inside cradle to pick up another victim, a second straight for Tazz’s team.

Elimination #3: John Morrison by Ron Killings

Sheamus was furious at seeing his team faltering but it was his rival, Carlito who went looking to even it up, and he nearly did until Killings countered a springboard back elbow attempt to tag in London. The high flyer looked impressive like Kendrick and put Raw’s native Caribbean superstar on the back foot. Sheamus’s mood wasn’t getting any better until London missed a missile dropkick with Carlito looking to hit the Backstabber straight away.

London held on to the ropes though as Carlito hit the deck, and Sheamus could only look on as London rolled under the bottom rope before hitting a slingshot sunset flip. Carlito kicked out at two, much to the relief of Sheamus & Cody who saw London & Carlito rush back up to their feet where London exploded with a super kick to put Carlito flat on his back. He didn’t go for a cover and opted to drag him towards the corner, going all the way to the top rope for a Shooting Star Press.

Carlito though rolled to the ropes and dodged it as London crash landed on his chest, looking in some serious pain. It gave Carlito the chance to crawl over to his corner and tag in his rival come team captain, and The Celtic Warrior wasted no time in stepping in to the action. He was in one foul mood and urged the struggling London to stand back up, and as he did, the Intercontinental Champion flew out of his team’s corner and took London’s head off with the deadly Brogue Kick to once again level things up.

Elimination #4: Paul London by Sheamus


Cody & Kendrick were going at it, both giving it their all and getting the crowd involved. Cody fought his way in to the ascendency, but as he came off the ropes looking to connect with a bulldog, Kendrick pulled back and Cody ran right in to the turnbuckle pads. The crowd were enjoying that, and as Cody turned round and walked away from the corner, still feeling the effects, Kendrick leapt up in to the air for a hurricanrana.

The fans were really getting behind Kendrick now, and he was feeling the momentum big time. He wasted no time in pulling Cody up from his knees, setting him up for the Sliced Bread. He didn’t waste a single second and ran right in to the corner, ran up the ropes and sent Cody’s head right in to the canvas, securing a third elimination for Team Smackdown to the delight of the Toronto crowd.


Elimination #5: Cody Rhodes by Brian Kendrick


Closing Minutes:
Sheamus is bang up for this and M.V.P. sure knows it as he claws his way back up, not knowing what suffering is waiting for him as he does so. The Celtic Warrior stares over at him from the opposite side of the ring, ready it would seem to take his head off with the BROGUE KICK!!!. . . . . M.V.P. turns round, totally unaware of the incoming Irishman but ducks his head, only just as the stunned Sheamus puts the brakes on. The Raw captain turns round in a flash in to a quick stomp to the gut and a SNAP DDT FROM HIS OPPOSITION CAPTAIN!!. . . . . The fans are cheering as M.V.P. turns him over and hooks the legs quickly to make a cover on the Intercontinental Champion. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Sheamus gets his shoulder up! M.V.P. sits up looking disappointed but quickly shrugs it off and makes his way back up with Sheamus sitting up, looking a little frosty it has to be said, trying to shake away the cobwebs. Smackdown’s Franchise Player is ready & waiting for him, urging him up and he can’t wait any longer. He gives the Irishman a helping hand and whips him in to the corner, following right in for the PLAYA’S BOOT!!!. . . . . Sheamus looks like he’s on dream street as he follows M.V.P. out of the corner, walking right in to his path as Smackdown’s captain steps back from the ropes.

He takes full advantage of Sheamus being in a spin and pulls him in to place for THE PLAYMAKER!!!. . . . . There’s a big pop breaking out in the stands as M.V.P. smirks in to the crowd, but Sheamus slips to safety, pulling back as M.V.P. drives forward. Porter looks stunned and turns round in a flash, right in to Sheamus’s clutches and a SIDE-SLAM BACKBREAKER!!. . . . . That had to hurt, and judging by M.V.P. rolling around on the mat, it would seem so.

Sheamus doesn’t care though and looks down at him without a care in the world, backing towards the corner, keeping his eyes firmly fixed on his opposition captain. M.V.P. struggles back up to his feet holding his back as he does so, and with Killings & Kendrick looking concerned on the apron, he turns round to see The Celtic Warrior surging across the mat to NAIL HIM WITH THE BROGUE KICK!!!. . . . . M.V.P. falls to the canvas and the extremely focused Raw captain drops to his knees immediately to cover him. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3!

Elimination #6: M.V.P. by Sheamus

Sheamus slowly stands back up as M.V.P. rolls towards the ropes, but the Irishman doesn’t see Kendrick flying through the ropes. He turns round and sees Kendrick charging right at him, connecting with a dropkick to the chest that puts the Intercontinental Champion down on one knee. With the crowd willing him on, Kendrick turns back and runs the ropes, coming back off them to hit another dropkick, RIGHT TO THE FACE OF THE KNEELING RAW CAPTAIN!!. . . . . Sheamus falls back to the mat and Kendrick jumps right on top of him, desperately covering the floored Irishman. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Sheamus kicks out! Kendrick takes it on the chin and is back up in a flash, heading straight to the apron and climbs to the summit as his opponent picks himself back up. Sheamus looks a bit rattled and turns round in to a MISSILE DROPKICK FROM KENDRICK!!. . . . . Sheamus is down again and the crowd are getting right behind Kendrick with a big cheer making its way round the Air Canada Center. Sheamus though isn’t down for long, but Kendrick is on him as soon as he gets up, stomping him in the gut and grabbing his head to set him up for SLICED BREAD!!!. . . . .

It’s getting seriously loud in here as Killings looks on, urging his partner on, and the pumped-up Kendrick runs in to the corner again looking to finish off Raw’s captain. The Intercontinental Champion isn’t done yet though and throws Kendrick forward as he comes back off the ropes, sending him crashing in to the mat. Sheamus glares at Kendrick like he was his lunch as the cruiserweight claws his way up to his knees, and it looks like he could be in serious danger.

The Celtic Warrior motions for him to get up, and as he does, he runs right at him FOR THE BROGUE KICK!!!. . . . . NO, KENDRICK DUCKS IT AND LANDS A SUPER KICK ON SHEAMUS’S CHIN!!!. . . . . The crowd can’t believe it and Sheamus falls flat on his back with the tired Kendrick coming down on top of him to hook his leg and make a cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO!

Sighs of disappointment come from the stands as Sheamus just manages to get his shoulder up to the shock & disappointment of Kendrick as well as Killings on the apron. He thought his partner had it, and even Carlito looks stunned. Kendrick makes his way back up and heads over to his corner to tag in The Truth. Killings hits the ring and helps the dazed Irishman up from his knees to send him in to the ropes, but wait, Sheamus reverses it. Killings hits the ropes at speed but comes sliding back through Sheamus’s legs.

Sheamus is shocked and turns round as Killings jumps up to his feet to duck a wild right from the Intercontinental Champion, grabbing him around the waist and HITTING A GERMAN SUPLEX!!. . . . . Sheamus’s back hits the mat but like Killings, he makes his way back up with Killings looking determined to put the dangerous Irishman away. He stomps him in the gut and back pedals in to the ropes, comes back looking for the SCISSOR KICK!!. . . . . Sheamus pulls back though and Carlito reaches over the top to slap his rival & partner’s back, much to the surprise of Sheamus as he watches the Puerto Rican jump over the top rope.

Killings doesn’t see it as he turns round with Carlito charging at him to nail him with a RUNNING KNEE LIFT TO THE SIDE OF THE HEAD!!. . . . . Carlito runs through off the ropes and comes back, taking Killings down with a clothesline. Sheamus doesn’t look too happy as he steps back through the ropes, staring right at his rival, who stares back at him with The Truth at his feet. Carlito turns his attention back to his opponent and runs in to the ropes and HITS A SPRINGBOARD MOONSAULT!!. . . . . He hits it perfectly and lands on top of his opponent, reaching to the side to hook the Smackdown superstar’s leg for the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

No, The Truth kicks out. Carlito ignores his frustration and stands right back up, dragging Killings with him and setting him up for the OVERDRIVE!!. . . . . Killings counters though and shoves ‘lito in to the ropes, but the Puerto Rican holds on to them. Killings isn’t happy about it and runs right at him, right in to an extended elbow. It sends him staggering away from the ropes, and as he turns round, Carlito runs right at him and back-flips over him, this time connecting with the OVERDRIVE!!. . . . . Killings’ face is driven in to the mat and Carlito turns him right back over to cover him. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO!

Killings gets his shoulder up but ‘lito isn’t happy this time. He thought he had it there and stands up staring right down at the squirming Truth. Carlito urges him to get up, and The Truth makes it up to his feet, the Puerto Rican slips behind him and pulls back for THE BACKSTABBER!!!. . . . . Killings stands firm though and Carlito hits the deck with Sheamus not happy at all as he watches on.

The Truth turns round and Carlito picks himself back up, right up in to a kick to the gut from Killings who follows it up with the TRUTH CONVICTION (SIT-OUT INVERTED SUPLEX SLAM)!!!. . . . . Carlito looks like he’s out as Killings rushes to make the cover, turning the Puerto Rican over on to his back with the ref dropping to his knees to make the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

YES! Carlito’s gone and we’re down to Truth & Kendrick from Smackdown taking on Raw’s last man standing, Sheamus!

Elimination #7: Carlito by Ron Killings

The Celtic Warrior races back in to the ring as Killings makes his way back up, unaware that Sheamus is already in, and as he turns round, the Irishman sends him down to the mat with a ferocious clothesline that turns Killings inside out. Sheamus wastes no time in dragging him back up, setting him up between his legs for the HIGH CROSS!!!. . . . .

The fans boo as Sheamus takes the time to stare across at Kendrick, but as he lifts The Truth up above his head, Killings slips to safety and jumps down, landing on his feet. Sheamus is stunned and turns round in to a JUMPING HEEL KICK ENZUIGIRI!!!. . . . . The Intercontinental Champion’s legs fall from under him as he hits the deck. The Truth senses he has the victory sewn up and scurries across the mat on his hands & knees to hook Raw’s out cold captain’s leg for the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO!

Killings leans back looking ever so slightly frustrated, but as he turns his head he sees Kendrick calling for the tag. The Truth obliges and tags in the enthusiastic Kendrick who jumps up to the top rope as Sheamus sits up. Kendrick watches him, waiting patiently as Sheamus makes it up and turns round. Kendrick steps off FOR A DIVING CROSS BODY!!. . . . . He takes Sheamus down and holds on for the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . NO!

Sheamus powers out and both men pick themselves back up and Kendrick nails him with a DROPSAULT!. . . . . The big man goes down to a pop from the Canadian crowd and Kendrick flies back up, running to the corner with Sheamus making his way back up. He turns round and walks in to the corner as Kendrick, with his back to him, leaps up in to the air, coming down on to Sheamus for an ASAI MOONSAULT!!!. . . . . Kendrick forces him down and holds on to the Irishman’s legs for another cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO!

Again Sheamus kicks out, but Kendrick’s not letting it bother him one bit and wastes no time in rushing back up to his feet. The rattled Raw captain follows him, looking a bit shaky, and Kendrick looks to take full advantage by stomping him in the gut. He grabs Sheamus by the head and pulls it under his arm, then runs in to the corner, runs up the ropes and DRILLS THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPION WITH THE CYCLONE DDT!!!. . . . . Sheamus is flat on his back, not moving a muscle as Kendrick desperately shimmies round to hook both legs for another cover with the fans counting along with the ref. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO!

Kendrick leans back, wondering what he’s got to do to put Sheamus away. The Celtic Warrior starts to stir, and with Killings willing him on, Kendrick jumps back up to his feet and urges Sheamus to do the same. He’s looking even shakier on his feet, and Kendrick sets about finishing the job, stomping him in the gut as he gets to his knees. He looks in to the crowd and runs in to the corner, trying for the SLICED BREAD!!!. . . . . BUT NO, SHEAMUS ESCAPES IT AGAIN, THROWING KENDRICK ACROSS THE RING AND DOWN TO THE MAT!!. . . . .

The fans boo as Sheamus shakes off the cobwebs in the corner as Kendrick claws his way back up. Sheamus’s eyes are fixed on him, looking ready to explode, and as Kendrick makes it up and turns round, The Celtic Warrior flies out of the corner AND LEVELS HIM WITH THE BROGUE KICK!!!. . . . . Kendrick is out and Sheamus doesn’t hang about making the cover, dropping to his knees and hooking the leg. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3!

Elimination #8: Brian Kendrick by Sheamus

And then there were two! Killings stares over at Sheamus before stepping through the ropes with the Irishman staring right back as Kendrick is helped to the apron by the referee. Sheamus & Killings slowly walk towards each other and lock up in a collar & elbow tie-up. Sheamus gets the upper hand with cheering on The Truth, but it’s Killings who gets shoved down to the mat. Sheamus stares down at him with a stern look, waiting for his opponent to get back up. Killings coolly returns to his feet, not showing any signs of being intimidated.

He takes his time getting back up but Sheamus goes right for him, hammering away at him with right hands and fires him in to the ropes. Sheamus ducks his head and Killings makes him pay with a swift kick to the kisser of The Celtic Warrior. That gets a big pop from the stands and Killings follows it up with a REVERSE STO!!. . . . . The fans are cheering again as Killings shifts round to make a cover, desperately hooking the Irishman’s leg for a cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO! Sheamus gets the shoulder up, denying Killings & Smackdown the win. The fans might be disappointed, but The Truth’s not as he races back up to his feet and reaches down to bring Sheamus up with him. He tries to send the Intercontinental Champion in to the corner, but the groggy Raw captain reverses it to send Killings in to the pads. He doesn’t hit them hard though, and as Sheamus runs in at him, he lifts his boot up in to the Irishman’s face, sending him staggering out of the corner.

The Truth pulls himself up to the second rope, and as Sheamus turns round, Killings leaps off the top for a DIVING CROSS BODY!!. . . . . OH DEAR, SHEAMUS CATCHES HIM AND TOSSES HIM BACK WITH A FALLAWAY SLAM!!. . . . . Killings hits the mat hard, and Sheamus makes his way back up with a look of serious intent on his face, turning round and glaring with fury at the squirming Killings. The Truth bravely pulls himself back up to his feet, but as he turns round, Sheamus STORMS ACROSS THE MAT FOR THE BROGUE KICK!!!. . . . .

NO, KILLINGS SIDESTEPS IT AND KICKS SHEAMUS IN THE GUT!!. . . . . The fans are going crazy as Killings backs up in to the ropes and comes back for the SCISSOR KICK!!!. . . . . SHEAMUS PULLS BACK THOUGH, SHOVES KILLINGS IN TO THE ROPES AND RUNS AT HIM, NAILING HIM WITH THE BROGUE KICK!!!. . . . . It’s got to be over! Killings is down and the lights are out. The menacing Raw captain drops to his knees and hooks both legs for the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

YES, 3! DING DING DING!

Elimination #9: Ron Killings by Sheamus

“Written In My Face” hits and a smug Sheamus stands back up to get his arm raised, smirking in to the crowd as Team Raw is announced the winner. He’s passed his Intercontinental Championship and throws it over his shoulder, staring down at the flat out Killings. Sheamus takes great pleasure in it and throws both hands up in the air along with the Intercontinental title, getting a chorus of boos from the crowd. They only amuse him even more as he leaves the ring and laughs off the fans jeers, turning back to lift his title up again as Killings sits up, dazed and not sure what’s gone on as the camera goes back to the smiling Irishman.


Winners: Team Raw.

Survivor: Sheamus.


*Cut Backstage*


We’re taken to the custom office/locker room of the General Managers as both Eric Bischoff & Tazz are sat on a leather sofa with Bischoff all smiles at Raw’s victory.


Eric Bischoff: Unlucky my man, but I’ve gotta say, that was a bit too close f’ comfort.

Tazz: Yeah I thought we had it won. That Sheamus is one damn tough cookie though, unfortunately f’ us.

Eric Bischoff: He sure is. He’s got quite the future ahead of him. . .

We hear the door slam and a very anxious Mr. McMahon walks in to the room and Bischoff stands up.

Mr. McMahon: Bischoff.

Eric Bischoff: What? What the hell do you want barging in here like that?

Mr. McMahon: Don’t pull that crap with me. The only reason I’m not in charge around here is because of some stupid technicality an’ that money grabbing whore I married all those years ago.

Eric Bischoff: Regardless of our situation, that still doesn’t answer my question. What d’ you want?

Mr. McMahon: What do I want? I’d have thought that was simple. I want you to put a stop t’ this hell in a cell match t’night. You know full well John’s not a hundred per cent. He shouldn’t have t’ fight t’night, let alone in hell in a cell with his career hanging by a thread. . .

Eric Bischoff: . . . Vince let me stop you there. We both know J-B-L agreed to the match an’ signed a contract. Only Monday night he admitted he wasn’t a hundred percent but he was going t’ compete no matter what. Now as far as I’m aware he’s not been certified unable to compete t’night right? As long as that’s the case there’s nothing I can do for y’Vince.

Mr. McMahon: Nothing you can do, that’s what you’re saying?

Eric Bischoff: It’s not just what I’m saying Vince, it’s the way it is.

Mr. McMahon: Don’t get me started on the way it is Bischoff. The way things are around here are nothing short of disgraceful. There’s no way you should be in charge. Ev’ryone knows about your special relationship with The Big Show an’ how much you’d love t’ get rid of the McMahons. He’s got rid of Shane, putting him in the hospital, then he did the same t’ John an’ he almost chokeslammed me off the stage two weeks ago yet you do nothing. You won’t be happy until he’s done killing all of us but I’m not going t’ stand around an’ watch him do t’ John what he did t’ Shane. I’m not here asking you as Mister McMahon but as a father, man t’ man. Please. . .

Eric Bischoff: . . . Look you know there’s nothing I can do. What do you think would happen if I pulled that match? The fans out there paid big money t’ come here t’night knowing Big Show an’ J-B-L were gonna meet inside hell in a cell with both their careers on the line. If they don’t get t’ see it, what do you think they’d do? Then there’s the board. If it was any other match an’ you were in charge, we both know you’d crucify me, so sorry Vince the match goes ahead.

Vince doesn’t like it one bit but tries desperately to keep his composure.

Mr. McMahon: Fine, but if the worst happens t’night, it’s on your head. You remember that.

Eric Bischoff: Whatever Vince. All I can suggest is you go support your son ‘cause he’s gonna need it.

Vince just glares at Bischoff, raging inside but realises he’s not going to get anywhere and leaves the room in a strop, slamming the door in the process, much to the amusement of Raw’s Head of Authority who sits back down alongside Tazz.

Tazz: Playing with fire there aren’t ya?

Eric Bischoff: Please, what’s he gonna do? I’m the one in charge around here, not him. He’s as much my bitch as J-B-L is Big Show’s.

Bischoff & Tazz laugh away as the very relaxed Bischoff leans back on the sofa without a care in the world.

*Match #4*




World Tag Team Championship – Tournament Final
Team Omega (Matt Hardy & Gregory Helms) w/Shannon Moore
vs. Rey Mysterio & Mystico
vs. Christopher Daniels & Kaval

Closing Minutes:
Daniels & Mystico make their way back up, Daniels grabs him by the head and takes him down to the mat in a side headlock, holding him down there. Daniels holds on tight, keeping the Mexican rookie grounded. The fans start clapping, as does Rey, doing what they can to help him, and it works. Mystico slowly makes it up to one knee, pumping his right hand in the air to get some more encouragement. He does and he rises to his feet to shove Daniels in to the ropes.

Daniels holds on to them looking smug but Mystico runs right at him and clotheslines him over the top with momentum, taking himself over. The Mexican grabs on to the ropes though and pulls himself back over the top to a decent pop as Daniels hits the floor. The rookie has his sights set on Daniels as he pulls himself up on the outside, and Mystico turns back to run the ropes. He comes racing back across, jumps up on to the ropes and springboards for an ASAI MOONSAULT TO TAKE DANIELS BACK DOWN TO THE FLOOR!!. . . . .

Mystico joins him but he’s up in a flash and the Canadian fans sure appreciate it. He’s not hanging round and drags Daniels up, then tosses him back in to the ring. Mystico climbs back up on the apron but walks over to the corner, climbing up to the top rope with Daniels sitting up. Kaval sees the danger his partner’s in and runs round the apron. Mystico sees him and turns his head, and the ref isn’t happy with Kaval either, wandering across to get Kaval back in his corner with Mystico watching.

Daniels is back on his feet and rushes in to the corner, catching Mystico unaware with a shot to the gut and he falls in to a seated position. Daniels wastes no time and backs in to the pads, grabbing the Mexican’s arms and brings him crashing down to the mat with a FALL FROM GRACE!!. . . . . He holds on for a cover and the ref hurries across the mat to make the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

Kick out by Mystico! Daniels isn’t impressed but he’s got his game face on and heads over to his partner on the apron to make the tag, bringing Kaval in to the action. He doesn’t waste a second in getting in to the ring and goes right after the fallen Mexican, jumping right on him and pulling him in to place for the DRAGON CLUTCH!!. . . . . Mystico’s in trouble and Kaval doesn’t let up with Rey showing some concern for his partner & rookie but gets behind him again, willing him on to break the hold. It’s not easy but the fan’s encouragement gets to Kaval, starting to panic, and even more so as Mystico manages to pull himself up off the mat.

Slowly but surely, he makes it up to his feet but Kaval has the hold still locked in. Mystico though tries to break it and forces him back across the ring and in to the corner, finally breaking the hold. The fans cheer as Mystico walks away from the corner, and as he turns round, Kaval comes running out at him, and BOOM, RIGHT IN TO A SUPER KICK!!. . . . . Kaval hits the deck and Mystico drops to the mat to hook his legs for the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Kaval gets his shoulder up and Mystico sits up in initial disbelief as Kaval’s eyes flicker ever so slightly. Mystico stands back up and tags his mentor & partner to a big cheer. Rey shifts across the apron, not getting in the ring just yet as Kaval pulls himself back up, looking as if he has a clue where he is. He makes it up, looking unsteady on his feet, and as he turns round, Mysterio explodes in to action with a SPRINGBOARD SEATED SENTON!!. . . . . The fans cheer as Kaval falls to the mat on his back with Rey on top of him, reaching his arms back to grab Kaval’s legs for a cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

Kaval kicks out but Rey’s not wasting any time getting upset about it. He’s right back on his feet, and as Kaval struggles back up to his feet, Rey runs in to the ropes and hits another springboard, this time for a REVERSE CROSS BODY OFF THE SECOND ROPE!!. . . . . He lands again on Kaval and forces him down to the mat with the ref frantically rushing across to make the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

Again Kaval kicks out and both men make their way back up with Rey jumping up on to his shoulders for a VICTORY ROLL!!. . . . . Rey hits it and holds on to Kaval’s legs as the ref again drops to his knees to make a count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . . NO!

Kaval kicks out again, but still Rey shows no sign of frustration and hops back up to his feet. Kaval’s not that far behind, showing some courage but clearly struggling. Rey helps him up from his knees and tries for an irish whip, but Kaval reverses it. Rey though comes racing back and counters with a TILT-A-WHIRL HEADSCISSORS TAKEDOWN AND THE MOMENTUM TAKES KAVAL ON TO THE MIDDLE ROPE TO A HUGE ROAR FROM THE CANADIAN FAITHFUL!!. . . . . Kaval’s in dangerous territory as Rey dials up the 619 AREA CODE!!!. . . . .

It’s deafening inside the Air Canada Center as Rey runs back in to the ropes, races across the ring and swings through the ropes, but no! Kaval pulls his head back. Rey quickly tries to get back in the ring as Kaval stands up, turns to the side and runs the ropes, springboards and CONNECTS WITH THE TIDAL WAVE, A SPRINGBOARD ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!. . . . . Mysterio’s clock has been well & truly cleaned as Kaval scampers across the canvas to make a cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Rey gets his shoulder up to the relief of the cheering crowd, and Kaval can’t believe it as he sits up holding his head in his hands. He slowly stands back up, still shocked he didn’t get the win there, but Helms leans over the top rope and slaps Kaval’s back, tagging himself in to the action. Kaval looks on in shock again as Helms climbs up to the top rope as Rey drags himself back up, shaky on his feet as the ref ushers the unhappy Kaval out of the ring. Helms is bursting on the top as he prepares to strike, and as Rey makes it back up, he dives off for a FROG SPLASH IN TO A DIVING CROSS BODY!!. . . . . He takes Rey down to the mat and reaches to the side, hooking his leg for a cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

Rey kicks out and Helms picks himself back up in a hurry with Rey trying to do the same. He’s still groggy as he sits up with Helms backing up across the mat, sizing Rey up for THE SHINING WIZARD!!!. . . . . Helms goes to strike, racing at Rey, but Mysterio ducks it and Helms hits the mat. Helms isn’t down for long though and tries to help Rey back up, but Mysterio reaches up and pulls him in to an INSIDE CRADLE!! . . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Helms this time kicks out as both men pick themselves back up as quickly as they can. Rey stomps Helms in the gut and turns back, runs the ropes but Helms nails him as he comes back with the KITCHEN SINK!!. . . . . Rey hits the deck again, sitting up winded and holding his stomach. Helms doesn’t show his friend any mercy and pulls him right back up, under his arm for the NIGHTMARE ON HELMS STREET AND HITS IT, SENDING REY SPIRALLING FACE DOWN IN TO THE CANVAS!!!. . . . . Mysterio’s out and Helms sees the finishing line as he hurries to turn Rey over on to his back and make the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

Daniels storms the ring and stomps on Helms’ head, stopping the count and the ref is livid. He jumps up to his feet and gives the unapologetic Daniels an earful who simply strolls back to his corner with Helms & Rey both squirming on the mat. They’re both a bit dazed as they make it back up and Helms strikes the first blow with a stomp to the gut and whips him in to the ropes, right next to Daniels who discreetly slaps Rey’s back as he bounces off them. Helms hasn’t seen it and connects with a standing dropkick on Mysterio, falling to the mat with him, but as he gets back up, Daniels is in the ring and charges at him, levelling him with a RUNNING ENZIGUIRI!!. . . . . Helms falls flat on his face and Daniels scurries across the canvas on his hands & knees, turns him over and makes the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO!

Daniels looks stunned as Helms gets his shoulder up and glares over at the referee like he’s made a mistake, but he’s not and lets Daniels know it, signalling the two count. He’s pissed for everyone to see and stands up with a look that could kill. He drags Helms towards the corner and climbs up to the top rope, facing the crowd, bounces off the top rope and comes crashing down on Helms’ chest with the BEST MOONSAULT EVER!!!. . . . . Daniels is one intense son of a bitch and hooks the leg as the ref goes to make the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

No, Helms again gets his shoulder up leaving Daniels stunned again. He leans back in shock, again staring at the ref. He’s not happy as he stands up and brings Helms up with him, firing him with force in to the opposite corner, then runs in and nails him with a JUMPING HIGH KNEE!. . . . . Daniels back pedals out of the corner and the shaky Helms staggers out right in to his opponent’s grasp, who fiercely kicks him in the gut and pulls him in to place for the ANGELS’ WINGS!!!. . . . . Daniels stops & stares intensely in to the crowd for a brief second, giving Helms the chance to counter, sweeping Daniels’ legs and flipping forward for a JACK-KNIFE COVER!! . . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

Daniels kicks out to disappoint the crowd as he & Helms both pick themselves back up with Daniels up first, striking with a stiff kick. Helms slumps forward as Daniels turns to the side and runs the ropes, comes flying back and takes Helms down with a RUNNING NECKBREAKER!!. . . . . Helms is back on the mat and the focused Daniels again hooks the leg for the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Again Helms gets his shoulder up to leave Daniels furious. He stands up with a face like thunder and walks over to his corner to tag Kaval back in to the match. Kaval though climbs up to the top rope with Helms still down & out on the mat, barely moving. Daniels’ partner has his sights set on finishing the contest and jumps off the rope for the WARRIOR’S WAY!!!. . . . . Helms rolls to the side though and Kaval’s feet hit the mat.

He’s right on Helms though and pulls him up from his knees to send him crashing in to the turnbuckle pads, right by Matt who slaps his partner’s shoulder. Kaval has to switch gears and runs right at Hardy as he enters the ring, but Hardy ducks a clothesline and nails him with a right hand and another. The fans cheer as Matt fires Kaval in to the opposite corner and charges right at him, nailing him with a hard clothesline. He holds on to the Kaval’s head and turns round, runs out of the corner and plants him with a bulldog to a big pop.

Momentum’s shifting in Matt & Helms’ favour and Matt makes his way back up, going right back to the corner. He pulls himself up to the second rope with Kaval motionless in front of him, and with the fans cheering again, Matt lets out a roar and steps off the ropes for a DIVING LEG DROP!!. . . . . The fans are well behind Hardy as he shimmies round on the mat and turns Kaval over and hooks both legs for the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Kaval gets his shoulder up to the relief of Daniels on the apron who shouts out some encouragement to his partner. Matt’s full of momentum now, getting right back up on his feet and urging the squirming Kaval to get up too. Kaval struggles back up and turns round in to Matt’s path, and Hardy grabs him around the upper torso in a flash and plants him with the SIDE EFFECT!!. . . . . The crowd are cheering in their numbers again as Matt stands up and stalks Kaval, sizing him up for the TWIST OF FATE!!!. . . . .

Daniels looks worried, big time as his partner claws his way up to his knees, struggling to make it up. He panics and storms the ring, gunning for Matt but the ref blocks him off, stepping in front of Matt and yelling at Daniels to get out of the ring. He’s not going anywhere and gets in to it with the ref as Matt tells him to do the same. Kaval is back up, and as Daniels steps back on the apron, Matt turns round and sees Kaval is back up.

He runs at him and Kaval leans back, matrix like and snaps back up, both men turning round in a flash and Kaval nails him with an almighty stiff kick to the gut, and another to put Matt on his knees. Kaval’s not done there and levels him with a one hell of a ROUNDHOUSE KICK, COMPLETING THE TRIPLE STRIKE!!!. . . . . Hardy falls back and Kaval is right down on top of him to make the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . NO!

Matt gets the shoulder up but only just to a big pop. Kaval can’t believe it and drives his fists in to the canvas as Matt lifts his head up, lights are on but no one’s home. Kaval watches him attempt to get back up and back pedals in to the ropes, getting his back slapped by Mysterio, making him the legal man instead. Kaval turns round and doesn’t like it, getting in to it with Rey as he steps through the ropes.

They go at it and start shoving each other. The ref interjects, stepping between them both and seeing Kaval back to his corner. Rey watches him every step of the way, taking his eye off Matt who’s back on his feet and walks up behind him to grab him by the head, pulls him down and drills him with a REVERSE DDT!!. . . . . Rey’s head is driven in to the canvas and Matt shifts round to hook Rey’s leg with the ref turning round and racing across to count Rey’s shoulders. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . NO!

Mysterio gets his shoulder up to a big pop from the Canadian crowd. Matt stands back up and tracks back to his corner, tagging Helms back in. The other North Carolina native steps inside and stays in the corner, locking his eyes on Rey who tries to sit up. Helms is itching to get at him but stays calm, just. As Rey sits up, Helms sets off across the mat for the SHINING WIZARD!!!. . . . .

Rey sees it coming and ducks it, and as they both pick themselves back up, Helms reverses an irish whip to send Rey in to the ropes. Mysterio slides through and jumps back up, right on to Helms’ shoulders, twisting round on them for the MYSTERIO-RANA!!!. . . . . He hits it and holds on to Helms’ legs as the ref rushes across to make the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

Kick out from Helms! Matt breathes a sigh of relief on the apron as both Rey & Helms race back up to their feet with Rey stepping back towards the ropes. Helms walks out towards him and in to a drop toe hold on to the middle rope. The crowd goes nuts as Rey dials it up one more time, but Daniels & Kaval see what’s coming up and fly through the ropes in to the ring. The ref blocks off Daniels but Kaval gets past him, but Matt cuts him off with a clothesline to put him down and follows it up with a TWIST OF A FATE!!!. . . . .

Daniels is furious and barges past the referee, but Mystico cuts him off with a stomp to the gut and a TORNADO DDT!!!. . . . . Daniels & Kaval are both sent rolling to the outside with Rey, Matt & Mystico watching them, and the Mexicans surprise their buddy by tossing him over the top rope together to another loud cheer from the crowd. Mystico watches him getting back up on the outside and walks over to the apron, grabs hold of the top rope and leaps off with a SLINGSHOT CORKSCREW CROSS BODY TO TAKE MATT DOWN!!!. . . . .

Rey looks on with a smile, but as he turns round, Helms is on his feet and charges right at him. Mysterio though back pedals and drop toe holds him on to the second rope again, setting off another big cheer in the Air Canada Center. Rey doesn’t waste any time dialling up this time and runs the ropes, comes racing back across the ring, this time CONNECTING WITH THE 619!!!. . . . . Helms falls back to the mat as Rey steadies himself on the apron, jumps up on to the top rope and HITS A SPRINGBOARD SPLASH ON HELMS, REACHING ACROSS TO HOOK HIS LEG FOR THE COVER. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3!

MYSTERIO & MYSTICO ARE THE NEW WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS!!!

“Booyaka 619” blasts out and the crowd erupts with joy as Mystico crawls back in the ring, embracing his ecstatic mentor & partner as the ref fetches their titles. They’re handed the gold and are announced as the new champions while getting their arms raised. Again they joyously embrace before heading to opposite corners to pose with their titles, lifting them up for the Canadian fans to see, still cheering as they switch corners with Daniels sitting up on the outside looking absolutely furious. Rey looks down at him and lifts the title up for Daniels’ benefit, pointing to it to really rub it in.

The Mexican mentor & rookie duo step off the ropes and link up again as they leave the ring and head up the ramp, turning round to once again show off their titles as Daniels still looks on with fury. Matt sits up on the outside with Shannon Moore consoling him, both looking disappointed, as does Helms as he comes round in the ring, but it’s all about the new champions as they pose with their titles on the stage one last time before walking to the back.


Winners: By pinfall, and the new World Tag Team Champions, Rey Mysterio & Mystico.

Todd Grisham
is standing by backstage at an interview set.

Todd Grisham: Ladies an’ gentleman please welcome my guest at this time, the w-w-e champion, ‘The Animal’ Batista.

The camera zooms out and shows the WWE Champion, Batista standing a foot apart from Grisham in his ring gear and the title he’ll defend later on draped over his left shoulder.

Todd Grisham: Later on t’night you’ll be defending the w-w-e title against two men you know very well, Triple H an’ Randy Orton in a triple threat match. There’s been all kinds of problems between all three of you for a long time now, especially so in the last couple of months. Just how are you feeling going in to this match which some could say is arguably the toughest of your career t’ date given the circumstances surrounding it?

Batista: There’s no doubt Josh it’s gonna be tough, but the fact is I’m ready for it, more so than any other match I’ve ever been in. I know how tough it’s gonna be but I also know both Randy an’ Hun’er inside out. I know their strengths an’ weaknesses, but they also know mine. This match though is way more than just a match. It’s gone way beyond that an’ just the w-w-e title. . . f’ them. Yeah it’s personal an’ I wanna beat the hell out o’both of ‘em, but they wanna try an’ prove somethin’. They wanna prove they were the best thing in Evolution too. Me, I don’t care about that. Evolution’s in the past. They might think they’re better than me but they found out Monday night I’m up f’ the fight. I’m ready f’ ev’rythin’ they’re gonna throw at me. They always underestimated me. . . always. They do that t’night, they’re in serious trouble, ‘cause t’night I’m gonna win the match an’ walk out still w-w-e cha. . .

Batista’s shocked as the camera zooms out to reveal ‘The Game’ Triple H walk in to the shot and right in to The Animal’s face. With Grisham looking extremely concerned, the two rivals just stare each other in the eye, The Game taking a deep breath in the process. Neither shows any fear as the incredibly intense Triple H steps back and then walk away with Batista watching him every step of the way.

*Match #5*



Hell in a Cell – Loser Leaves Town
The Big Show w/Justin Gabriel
vs. John ‘Bradshaw’ Layfield w/Vince McMahon

Closing Minutes:
Show’s taken charge and has to help the weary J.B.L. up from his knees, only to drive his massive head in to his opponent’s, putting Mr. McMahon’s son back on the canvas. Vince is one very worried looking father on the outside, and Show looks over, getting some satisfaction at seeing Vince suffer. The World’s Largest Athlete back pedals in to the ropes, bounces off them and comes back to DROP HIS HUMUNGOUS LEG DOWN ON J.B.L.’S CHEST!!. . . . .

BUT NO, LAYFIELD ROLLS TO THE SIDE AND SHOW HITS THE MAT!. . . . . Vince shouts out some much needed encouragement to his battle scarred son who slowly crawls towards the corner as Show makes his way back up with Gabriel encouraging him outside the cell. Show’s rookie watches on as J.B.L. uses the ropes to help him, standing back up in the corner, but as he turns round against the pads, the giant charges right at him.

Layfield panics and steps to the side as Show’s giant frame hits the pads, and Show staggers back, giving J.B.L. the chance to take him down to the mat thanks to a SWINGING NECKBREAKER!!. . . . . Vince is excited for his son and shouts at him to cover him with Gabriel slightly concerned as he watches J.B.L. shimmy round and just about manage to lift one of Show’s tree trunk legs up off the mat to make a cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

NO! Show gets his shoulder up to a pop from the Canadian crowd, leaving the intense J.B.L. incredibly frustrated. He stares down at Show with a look of disgust before taking his time in standing back up and dropping a series of elbows in to the giant’s chest, one rapid shot after another, much to Vince’s approval & satisfaction. He’s looking much calmer now, but the same can’t be said for his son who taunts the former Corporation member, calling for him to stand up.

Show doesn’t disappoint and makes it back up somewhat sluggishly in to a stern kick to the gut from J.B.L. who tries to pull the massive head under his arm for a DDT!!. . . . . Show doesn’t let him and he shoves his opponent with force back in to the ropes, surprising J.B.L. who comes back at Show with the big man GRABBING HIM AROUND THE THROAT FOR A CHOKESLAM!!!. . . . .

The fans are loving it, cheering like crazy as Show stares right in to his rival’s eyes, but J.B.L. fights dirty as ever and pokes The World’s Largest Athlete in the eye to escape the deadly hold. Vince breathes a massive sigh of relief outside satan’s structure, and with Show slumped forward holding his face, J.B.L. takes full advantage to drill him with a SNAP DDT!!. . . . . Show’s massive forehead just rebounded off the mat and J.B.L. turns him over in a frenzy and hooks the leg for the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Show just manages to get his shoulder up, not that J.B.L. looks all that surprised. He sits up and looks over at his dad before watching his opponent roll on to one side. J.B.L.’s eyes are fixed on Show, staring at him sadistically as he tries to make it back up to his feet. Layfield makes his own way up, stepping back from the groggy giant. J.B.L. looks like he’s ready to explode and turns to the side and runs the ropes and comes racing back across the mat for THE CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!!!. . . . . NO, SHOW DUCKS IT!. . . . .

The fans are cheering and the stunned J.B.L. puts the brake and turns round, RIGHT IN TO A HELLACIOUS CHOKESLAM!!!. . . . . The fans are going crazy but Layfield rolls to the ropes and towards the apron. Vince is still worried and he has every right to as the menacing seven foot plus monster coolly stands upright again with The Wrestling God just about showing signs of life. Show watches him as he lifts his head up, not having a clue as to where he is right now.

The Big Show gives him all the time in the world, his eyes locked firmly on his struggled opponent who grabs hold of the ropes. He uses them as he slowly pulls himself back up with his dad watching on with great concern, and as The American Hero makes it back up to his feet, Show goes after his man, running across the ring at him, but J.B.L. sees him coming and DUCKS DOWN HOLDING THE TOP ROPE TO SEND SHOW OVER THE TOP AND DOWN TO THE FLOOR!!. . . . .

Vince is enjoying that as his son dodges a big bullet, and he knows it as he gets his breath back on the inside, looking down at his fallen opponent. He calmly now rolls under the bottom rope to join Show on the floor as the big man tries to sit up. That’s as far as he gets as J.B.L. grabs him by the head and grates it across the cell without remorse, and Vince walks round to get an up close & personal look as Show starts to bleed from the forehead.

Vince likes that and so does the sadistic J.B.L. as he lets go and smirks at the sight of Show’s blood as he falls back to the floor. The former WWE Champion isn’t done there though, not by a long shot and he stamps his boot down on Show’s throat, choking the life out of the giant, and the referee can’t do a damn thing about it. J.B.L. is getting the full approval of his father as Show tries to get the boot away from his throat but can’t.

To the surprise of many, J.B.L. shows some compassion and lets go, only to look in to the crowd with a smug smile on his face, getting a whole host of boos thrown in his direction. They don’t bother him in the slightest as Gabriel looks on worried for his mentor who sits up gasping for breath. Layfield goes walk about and takes a look under the apron, remerging with another smile on his face as he pulls out a kendo stick.

It gets a mixed reception from the crowd, but J.B.L. knows full well how he feels about it as he menacingly walks back towards The Big Show who struggles back up to his feet, turning right round in to a SHOT TO THE CHEST FROM THE KENDO STICK!!!. . . . . J.B.L. LETS LOOSE AND LASHES OUT WITH SHOT AFTER SHOT, PUTTING THE GIANT TO HIS KNEES AND NAILING HIM WITH ONE FINAL SICK SHOT TO THE ALREADY BLOODY SKULL OF THE SEVEN FOOT GIANT!!!. . . . .

Boos ring out as Vince applauds the sight of Show falling to the floor with J.B.L. standing over him with his arms aloft and the kendo stick in his right hand. The Wrestling God lets go of it as Show lifts his head up off the floor, clearly hurting, much to the amusement of the McMahon family. Gabriel fears the worst as he watches his mentor get up to his knees and crawls towards the steel steps, and that too satisfies The Wrestling God.

J.B.L. looks on smirking as Show leans against the steps, trying to pull himself up from his knees. Layfield then charges at him and DRIVES HIS BOOT AT SHOW’S HEAD BUT SHOW PULLS HIS HEAD BACK AND J.B.L. KICKS THE TOP STEP OFF THE BASE!!!. . . . . The fans cheer and along with the shocked Mr. McMahon, they can only look on as The Big Show spins him round, but J.B.L. KICKS HIM RIGHT IN THE NUTS AND DRILLS HIM WITH A DDT ON TO THE STEPS!!!. . . . .

Blood oozes out from Show’s skull as a relieved J.B.L. sits up and looks down to see Show lying flat out with his head on the steps, and he sees the opportunity, the light at the end of the tunnel as he stands up and drags Show away from the steps to turn him over and go for a cover. The ref rushes down to make the count with Show not moving a muscle. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO!!!

The Big Show to the shock of J.B.L. & Vince gets his shoulder up, setting off a big pop in the stands. Gabriel punches the air and takes a deep breath as J.B.L. sits up in shock, not believing what he’s seeing. The ref signals the two count, not making matters any easier for Layfield who sits there shaking his head in disbelief. He has no choice but to accept it and get back to work, and that he does. He stands up with a face like thunder to see the base of the steps right in front of him.

With Show coming round, The Wrestling God lifts the steel base up off the floor and balances them on the apron before shoving them inside. He too gets back in the ring and sets them up not too far away from the ropes as Show sits up, not having a clue of what J.B.L. has in mind for him when he gets up. The giant crawls over to the apron, eyes still all over the place with blood dripping past them as he drags himself on to the apron.

The intense J.B.L. doesn’t hang around and goes right after him, dragging him back inside by the head, and Show can’t put up the resistance to stop him. The fans & Gabriel look on nervously as J.B.L. pulls him in to place for another DDT ON TO THE STEEL!!!. . . . . J.B.L. takes one last look at his dad and smirks, but Vince is stunned as Show counters, lifting J.B.L. UP IN TO A BEARHUG!!. . . . . A BIG POP RINGS ROUND THE AIR CANADA CENTER AS SHOW TRIES TO SQUEEZE THE LIFE OUT OF THE WRESTLING GOD!!!. . . . .

Vince is in shock and J.B.L. panics, but soon drops to safety with an eye gauge, setting off another chorus of boos for the Texan as his feet land back on the canvas and CONNECTS WITH A REVERSE STO ON TO THE STEEL!!!. . . . . Show’s got to be done! J.B.L. sure hopes so as he shimmies round in a hurry to cover Show, turning him over with his shoulders down on the steel. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO! Show gets his shoulder up again to a huge roar from the Toronto crowd! Vince can’t believe it and turns around in disgust on the outside as J.B.L. sits up in shock again, this time with a look of absolute disbelief on his face, wondering what he has to do to put The World’s Largest Athlete away. Gabriel nods his head and digs deep, believing in his mentor as the pissed J.B.L. stands up and kicks the steps to the side, right against the ropes. Again Show starts to stir with blood pouring from his skull, but he doesn’t look all there at all, eyes all over the place.

Layfield stands over him, staring down furiously at him as the giant tries to make it up to his knees, using his opponent’s body to help him. J.B.L. just watches him, letting him try and get back up, and just as he tries to steady himself, The American Hero turns back to run the ropes and comes storming back across, CONNECTING WITH THE CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!!!. . . . . HE GOT ALL OF IT AND SENDS THE BIG SHOW RIGHT BACK DOWN IN A HEAP!!!. . . . . Vince thinks it’s all over, and so does J.B.L. as he shifts round on the mat to hook the leg, going for another cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO!!!!!

My god, the arena’s in shock as Show gets his shoulder up again! Layfield’s pissed and drives his fists against the canvas with Vince kicking the security wall on the outside. Gabriel punches the air again as J.B.L. stands up and gets in the ref’s face, telling him it was three, but the ref stands up to him and makes it clear it wasn’t. The big Texan has no choice but to accept the ref’s right and turns round to see his opponent sitting up, and that sets him off. He back tracks and taunts Show again, begging him to get up, and slowly he does.

Layfield has his sights set on him, ready to pounce, and as Show struggles back up once again, still shaky as hell on his feet, J.B.L. runs the ropes one more time, coming back for THE CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!!!. . . . . NO, SHOW COUNTERS WITH A BIG BOOT TO THE FACE, PUTTING J.B.L. DOWN!!!. . . . . The fans cheer as Vince looks on like a worried man as Show drops to his knees, still in a bad way. He takes the time to shake off the cobwebs, and as he turns his head, still on his knees, he sees the steel by the ropes.

A light bulb goes off in his head and he looks in to the crowd, getting a cheer as they see what he has in mind. He slowly stands back up and walks towards them to a big pop with Vince looking like he’s about to crap his pants. J.B.L. picks himself back up, unaware of what Show’s got in mind. He picks them up and turns round to see his opponent back up, and as J.B.L. turns round, Show runs out of the corner AND DRIVES THE STEEL RIGHT IN TO THE TEXAN’S FACE!!!. . . . . J.B.L. falls flat on his back and Show coolly drops the steel to the side and kneels down to hook Layfield’s leg with the fans cheering along with the ref’s count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

. . . . . NO!

J.B.L., just & only just gets his shoulder up to the relief of Vince who looks like he’s about to have a panic attack any minute. Show leans back on his knees almost impressed by his opponent’s resilience, and the seven foot monster wipes away the blood before standing back up with The Wrestling God slowly coming round. Show looks right at Vince, smiling and points to his huge right fist, telling him it’s time to knock his son out. Vince is livid and starts banging his hands against the cell, kicking it too, much to the amusement of the giant.

Show takes the time to walk over to the apron and steps over the ropes down to the floor. He looks Vince right in the eyes and tells him he’s going to finish his son for good and there’s nothing he can do to stop him. Vince tells him he’ll make him suffer, calling him a son of a bitch, but that too makes Show laugh. He doesn’t have a care in the world as he turns his back on Vince and climbs back on to the apron with J.B.L. clawing his way back up.

He sees Show on the apron and reaches in to his tights to pull something out. It looks like brass knucks and he slips them on to his right hand, not that Show can see. Totally oblivious, Show walks towards his opponent and urges him to get up, and he does to NAIL SHOW RIGHT IN THE FACE WITH THE BRASS KNUCKS!!!. . . . . Show just falls flat on his back, much to Vince’s surprise and pleasure. Gabriel can’t believe it and neither can the crowd as J.B.L. puts the knucks back in his trunks before dropping to his knees to make the count with the fans booing like mad. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO!

Once again The Big Show lifts his shoulder up, just hanging on to the fury of J.B.L. Vince can’t believe it and turns around in disbelief on the outside as J.B.L. curses out loud, screaming “what’ve I gotta do?” He eventually stands back up and turns his head, looking in to the corner, and that’s where he heads. The big Texan rips off the top turnbuckle pad, and again Show doesn’t have a clue as he comes round and tries to sit up.

Layfield leaves the ring again and looks under the apron, this time pulling out a steel chair to yet more heat from his not so adoring Canadian public. He slips back in the ring as Show tries to get his balance, still looking shaky as J.B.L. takes a long look at him before racing across at him with the chair raised above his head. Show turns round and sees him coming, runs out to meet J.B.L. AND RIPS HIM IN HALF WITH A SPEAR!!!. . . . .

It’s deafening inside the Air Canada Center as Vince looks on, completely shell shocked with Gabriel clapping. Both Show & J.B.L. look like wrecks as they drag themselves back up to their feet, and it’s Show who strikes the first blow, stomping Layfield in the gut. He pulls J.B.L.’s head between his legs and lifts him up above his head, then back pedals in to the corner, TOSSING LAYFIELD BACK FOR A REVERSE THROWN POWERBOMB IN TO THE EXPOSED TURNBUCKLE!!!. . . . .

Huge cheers ring round the arena with some stunned faces shown in the crowd as J.B.L.’s head bluntly hit the exposed steel. Vince’s jaw’s dropped a good couple of inches as his son lies there flat out by the ropes with Show just realising the pad was removed. He smirks as he drops to his knees and makes the cover, hooking the near leg with the crowd counting out loud with the ref counting the fall. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

No, J.B.L. gets his foot on the rope to the shock of everyone in the arena as Vince again breathes a huge sigh of relief, patting his chest and shaking his head. Show sits up and almost laughs, then sees the steel base again. He makes his way back up and walks over to them, pulling them in to the middle of the ring. He then stops and looks to the side, smiling to himself before walking over to the apron and stepping through the ropes. The World’s Largest Athlete takes a look under the ring and to a huge pop, PULLS OUT A TABLE!!!. . . . . Vince doesn’t look happy about that at all, panicking big time as Show slides it in to the ring.

He climbs back in as J.B.L. comes round looking very groggy. Show picks the table up and walks over to the steel base, then sets the table up above it with the base underneath the centre of the table. J.B.L. though is crawling across the canvas on his hands & knees, fighting with everything he has to take hold of the steel chair. He crawls on top of it almost, disguising it so Show can’t see it. Vince doesn’t either and is almost crying as Show turns back to his opponent. He walks menacingly towards him, and just as he reaches down to pull him up, J.B.L. SWINGS THE CHAIR RIGHT IN TO THE BIG SHOW’S SKULL!!!. . . . .

It sends the giant staggering back, not enough to knock him down, but he’s teetering towards the table. Layfield stands back up, struggling to do so but sees Show’s on the brink. With Vince willing him on, J.B.L. TAKES ONE FEROCIOUS SWING OF THE CHAIR, BUT SHOW DUCKS IT AND GRABS J.B.L. BY THE THROAT!!!. . . . . THE FANS ARE GOING NUTS AND JUMP TO THEIR FEET AS J.B.L. DROPS THE CHAIR AND SHOW TURNS ROUND WITH HIM AT HIS MERCY, FACING THE TABLE!!!. . . . .

SHOW LIFTS HIM UP OFF HIS FEET AND SENDS HIM RIGHT THROUGH THE TABLE ON TO THE STEEL BASE WITH A CHOKESLAM ALL THE WAY FROM HELL!!!. . . . . Vince just stands there mouth wide open in shock, not taking it in with the fans going nuts as J.B.L. lies on top of the steel, flat out and completely helpless. The Big Show takes a look down with a sick smile on his face, enjoying seeing his rival down & out, and then shifts his way through the wreckage to make the all important cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

YES, IT’S ALL OVER! J.B.L.’S WWE CAREER IS OVER!

“Crank It Up” hits to a massive roar inside the Air Canada Center with Vince still in utter disbelief, not taking it in as the bloody Show stands up to get his arm raised. Gabriel applauds his mentor on the outside and Show invites him in, and the ref on the outside obliges, opening the cell door to let the South African rookie inside. He hits the ring and slaps hands with Show before having a brief guy hug. Show walks over to the ropes in front of Vince and smirks down at him, and Vince is livid beyond belief.

Show loves it and poses for the fans in front of him, throwing his huge right hand up in to the air. He turns round and sees EMT’s running down the ramp and in to the ring to check on J.B.L., and The Wrestling God still isn’t moving. Show takes one last look with a smirk on his face and takes his leave with Gabriel, and as he leaves the cell, Vince walks round and he stares angrily at Show who hobbles slightly back up the ramp with Gabriel, turning back as Vince enters the cell to check on his son, still not moving.


Winner: The Big Show by pinfall.


*Cut Backstage*


We’re back in Team Punk’s locker room with Chris Jericho, Shelton Benjamin & Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez all sat on the bench with their captain, the World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk pacing back & forth.


CM Punk: Look guys, there’s no need for us t’ worry about this. Yeah we’re a man down an’ Edge is a big time player, we know that, but we’ve still got what we need t’ win t’night in this room right now.

Jericho nods, looking at both Benjamin & Del Rio-Ramirez, as does Punk.

CM Punk: Just look at Chris. If I’m not mistaken, he was the first ever undisputed champion. You beat The Rock an’ who was it in the same night?

Punk smirks, clearly joking, and even Jericho doesn’t mind.

Chris Jericho: Very witty, however your point is right. Between us we have more than enough to be successful t’night. Simply put, we have t’ be. We cannot allow John Cena to stroll over here all his way in to a shot at the world title he doesn. . .

There’s a knock at the door, taking them all by surprise.

CM Punk: Oh great, what now? Come in.

To their shock, the door opens and Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley walks in and towards them, and she looks like she has some serious business in mind.

CM Punk: Wow, what an honour. What can we do for you Stephanie?

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley: If you don’t mind, I’d like a word with you alone.

Steph turns round, asking the rest of the team to leave with her eyes, not that they’re moving in a hurry.

CM Punk: It’s alright guys, you can say whatever you came to in front of them. I kind of get the feeling I know what you wanna talk t’ me about anyway.

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley: Well you can hardly be surprised after what you said on Friday night about John Cena. . .

CM Punk: . . . Look, some people might’ve seen it as controversial. . .

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley: . . . There’s no might about it Punk. You crossed the line in some of the things you said. . .

CM Punk: . . . Hold on. Is this a conversation I should be having with you know, my actual boss an’ not right now, like after the show, ‘cause if you haven’t noticed we’ve kind o’got a big match later on against the chosen one, or is that the point? Get me rattled up so I’m not focused properly an’ Cena can take advantage.

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley: Cute Punk, but don’t worry about Tazz. He’s aware of this conversation an’ what I’m about t’ tell you.

CM Punk: What you’re about t’ tell me, an’ what might that be?

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley: Well t’ get right t’ the point, this Friday on Smackdown I’m expecting you to issue an apology for overstepping the mark in what you said on the show two nights ago.

CM Punk: Huh, an’ who exactly who will I be apologising to? Cena, the ‘superstars’ that’ve been trod on by him who all feel the same way I do? The fans who must have been waiting years f’ somone t’ step up an’ tell it like it is? In case you haven’t noticed Steph, I’m kind of at a loss t’ see what the point of this ‘apology’ is.

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley: You know full well who you need to apologise to, and if you know what’s good for you, you’ll do it.

CM Punk: Is that right?

Steph nods at him and turns to leave.

CM Punk: Just before you go Steph, out of curiosity, who are you rooting for t’night?

Stephanie turns round, looking right at the smug World Champion.

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley: I don’t have to answer that.

CM Punk: No you don’t, not that we don’t know the answer already. I just hope you’re not too disappointed when we beat your poster boy.

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley: If I were you Punk, I’d be worried, an’ not just about your match t’night.

Punk isn’t quite sure what to make of that as Stephanie does leave this time, not intimidated whatsoever, leaving Punk to think about what she said.


*Cut to Ringside*


*Match #6*



WWE Championship
Batista © vs. Randy Orton
vs. Triple H

Closing Minutes:
With The Animal down, Orton sets his sights on Triple H as The Game makes his way back up. The Viper hammers him with a forearm shot, and another to put Triple H on the back foot. Orton grabs him by the arm and tries to whip his former Evolution team-mate in to the ropes, but The Game reverses it and catches Orton as he comes back with a HIGH KNEE STRIKE!. . . . . Orton falls to the mat but picks himself back up straight away, but Triple H is right on him, twisting his head round in to position for a FALLING NECKBREAKER, AND HE HITS IT, TAKING ORTON DOWN!!. . . . . Triple H wastes no time in shifting round on the mat to hook Orton’s leg and make a cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

No, Orton gets his shoulder up. The King of Kings takes it well and goes right back to work, making his way round to Orton’s legs to apply AN INVERTED INDIAN DEATHLOCK!!. . . . . The Game has it locked in and Orton’s got nowhere to go. He’s completely at Triple H’s mercy, but that’s not enough for The Game as he puts Orton through hell, trying to make him tap. Orton holds his right hand up, trying to hold on through the agony as Batista makes his way back up a matter of feet away.

Triple H sees him but tries to finish Orton off, and it looks like he might just tap out, but Batista sees that as he gets back up and runs across to stomp on the back of The Game’s head. It’s enough to break the hold and he pulls Triple H up to his feet to fire him hard in to the pads. The WWE Champion surges at his rival and drives his shoulder in to The Game’s ribs. He doesn’t stop there and repeatedly thrusts his shoulder in to Triple H’s midriff. It takes the winds out of his sails, and as Batista steps back out of the corner, The Game stumbles out in to a BACKBREAKER!!. . . . . The fans cheer as Batista covers his rival. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

The Game gets his shoulder up and The Animal shows a hint of frustration as Orton pulls himself back up to his feet. Batista too stands back up and sees Orton, still a little worse for wear, runs at him and takes him down with a running clothesline. The fans cheer again and Orton toughs it out, getting right back up, in to an irish whip from the WWE Champion.

Orton comes back off the ropes and The Animal plants him with a SPINNING SIDE SLAM!!. . . . . The cheers get louder as Batista appears to be on the verge of retaining his title, and with Orton flat on his back, the WWE Champion covers him with the hopeful fans counting along as the ref counts down Orton’s shoulders. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

No! Orton gets his shoulder up, sitting up and again looking rather worse for wear. Batista takes it on the chin and has his game face on as he makes his way back up, retreating to the corner and watching intently as The Legend Killer struggles his way up to his feet. The fans are looking on with anticipation, and the oblivious Orton makes it up, but as he turns round, The Animal storms across the ring at him going for THE SPEAR!!!. . . . .

BUT NO, ORTON SIDESTEPS IT AND GRABS BATISTA, PLANTING HIM WITH AN INVERTED HEADLOCK SIDE BACKBREAKER!!. . . . . Batista hits the deck and Orton goes for the cover straight away, no messing around as he hooks the champion’s legs with the ref making the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

No, Batista lifts his shoulder up, getting a pop from the crowd. The fans might be happy, but Orton isn’t as he stares down coldly at Batista who tries to sit up. The Viper pulls himself back across the mat on his hands & knees, fixated on the WWE Champion, and the challenger drives his fists in to the mat, getting more intense each time, all set for the RKO!!!. . . . . The Animal’s still down as Orton gets a shock, being pulled up to his feet by Triple H.

The Game stomps him in the gut and sets him up for the PEDIGREE!!!. . . . . It’s met by a mixed response from the Toronto fans, but Orton fights back with a back body drop, lifting Triple H up over his head and down to the mat. That too gets a mixed reaction, and Orton turns round looking down with contempt at The Game as he crawls towards the ropes.

He uses them to pull himself up to his feet, but as he turns round, The Viper runs at him and clotheslines him over the top rope, down to the floor below. The emotionless challenger slowly turns his head and steps away from the ropes, turning right round in to a SPEAR FROM THE WWE CHAMPION!!!. . . . . A massive pop breaks out as Orton’s ripped in half by The Animal, and Batista thinks it could be over, dragging Orton away from the ropes to make the cover, hooking the leg as the ref makes the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO!

Orton just about gets his shoulder up to deny Batista, disappointing the crowd and even The Animal himself. He quickly shrugs it off as he stands back up and looks in to the stands, lifting his arms up in to the air with his thumbs up. They go nuts as he brings them down. It’s crazy loud inside the Air Canada Center as Batista walks over to the ropes and shakes them in a frenzy, getting the crowd going even more.

He turns round and walks back towards the squirming Legend Killer, bending down to pick him up, BUT ORTON JUMPS UP AND HITS THE RKO OUT OF NOWHERE!!!. . . . . The crowd falls flat as the intense Orton scurries across the mat to turn the motionless Batista on to his back and make the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Triple H pulls the referee out of the ring and down to the floor. Orton can’t believe it, and turns his head to see The Game slip back in the ring. He rushes back up and runs towards him, but Triple H ducks a clothesline and puts Orton in a SLEEPER HOLD!!. . . . . Orton tries to fight his way out of it as The Game tries to hold on, but he can’t and The Legend Killer forces him back in to the corner, escaping Triple H’s clutches. He staggers out of the corner where The Game remains, but he turns round and runs back in, THRUSTING HIS SHOULDER TOWARDS HIM, BUT TRIPLE H STEPS TO THE SIDE AND ORTON COLLIDES IN TO THE RINGPOST!!. . . . .

Triple H takes some much needed recovery time but soon sees Batista clawing his way back up to his feet, shaky on his feet after the RKO as the ref crawls back in the ring. The Game takes full advantage and runs across the ring at him, taking him down with a CHOP BLOCK TO THE BACK OF THE KNEE!. . . . . The Animal goes back down and Triple H grabs his legs, pulling the champion away from the ropes to apply the FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK!!!. . . . . Boos ring out as Batista tries to stop himself from screaming with Triple H hell bent on making him tap, applying the pressure to The Animal who does all he can to hold on.

The ref asks him if he wants to tap out but he responds with a firm no, screaming it at the ref. He tries to drag himself back towards the ropes but can’t. The fans start chanting his name, not getting to the focused Triple H, but the champion starts to respond and tries to roll over to reverse the hold. There’s panic on the face of the challenger as he tries to stop Batista reversing the hold, but he can’t, and The Animal manages to reverse it to a huge cheer from the Canadian crowd.

It’s Triple H who’s now telling the ref he doesn’t want to give it up, but he’s in agony, screaming out in pain, but Orton turns round on his knees to see he’s on the verge of tapping. The Legend Killer panics in a big way and dives across on to Batista to break the hold. All three men are down, all hurt. It’s Orton & Triple H up first with Batista not far behind them, and Orton takes care of The Game, tossing him over the top rope. He turns his head & attention back to The Animal, waiting for him to turn round, and as he does he leaps up for the RKO!!!. . . . .

NO, BATISTA SHOVES HIM IN TO THE ROPES!. . . . . ORTON COMES RUNNING BACK RIGHT IN TO A BIG BOOT!. . . . . The fans are cheering again as the WWE Champion pulls him right back up to send him in to the ropes, and as Orton comes back he lifts up on his feet and DRIVES HIS BACK IN TO THE MAT AT FORCE WITH A HELLACIOUS SPINEBUSTER!!!. . . . . The crowd are going nuts for Batista as he wastes no time in standing back up with his game face on, bringing Orton up with him, setting him up once again for the BATISTA BOMB!!!. . . . .

The crowd’s about to erupt and Batista lifts Orton up above his head, BUT ORTON JUMPS DOWN, LANDS ON HIS FEET AND HITS THE RKO RIGHT OUT OF LEFT FIELD!!!. . . . . Batista’s done but The Game reaches inside the ring and pulls Orton out of the ring at force. Some of the fans boo, some in shock as Triple H crawls back in to the ring and scurries across to make the opportunistic cover on the champion. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO!

A huge pop breaks out in the stands and Triple H sits up in shock, looking gobsmacked. He quickly runs his hands through his hair and gets his composure back, standing up and gets ready for Batista to do the same. He’s getting hot under the collar and urges his rival up, and as Batista gets to his knees, he pulls him in to place for THE PEDIGREE!!!. . . . . A chorus of boos comes from the crowd, but The Game’s face quickly turns to panic as Orton slides back in the ring and runs at him, taking him down with a clothesline.

The crowd cheer Orton for probably the first & last time tonight as Triple H hits the deck. Batista though is up on his feet and grabs Orton from behind for a waistlock, but Orton quickly slips behind and tries to apply a SLEEPER!!. . . . . The champion doesn’t let him and lifts him up his back and tosses him forward, right in to the canvas. The fans are feeling it right now, and so is Batista. As Orton picks himself back up, Batista runs the ropes, running back to TAKE ORTON RIGHT BACK DOWN WITH A DIVING SHOULDER TACKLE!!. . . . .

Orton again makes his way back up in a bit of a spin, turning right in to a stomp to the gut. The Animal again pulls him between his legs for the BATISTA BOMB!!!. . . . . BUT NO, ORTON COUNTERS WITH A BACK BODY DROP!!. . . . . Batista hits the mat, just as Triple H gets up off it, catching the attention of The Viper. Orton runs right at him but in to a FACEBREAKER KNEE SMASH!!. . . . .

Orton doesn’t know where he is, in a real spin, spinning round in to a kick to the gut. The Game is feeling it now and pulls Orton by the head in to his midriff, setting him FOR THE PEDIGREE, AND HE HITS IT, DRIVING ORTON’S HEAD IN TO THE CANVAS!!!. . . . . The fans can only look in horror as Triple H turns the out-cold Orton over on to his back and hooks the leg for the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO!

Batista dives across on his knees to break up the count with an axe handle to the back of The Game, getting a huge cheer from the extremely relieved Canadian crowd. They start chanting Batista’s name again as he & Triple H pull themselves back up to their feet, and it’s The Game who acts first, stomping him in the gut and setting him up for THE PEDIGREE!!!. . . . .

Boos ring out, but not for long as Batista counters, sweeping The Game’s legs up off the mat and catapulting him in to the ringpost. More cheers break out as the groggy Triple H turns round not knowing where the hell he is to see Batista charging at him to TAKE HIM DOWN WITH A RIP ROARING SPEAR!!!. . . . . The champion tackles his challenger down to the mat and goes right for the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

Shoulder up from The Game! The fans can’t believe it and Batista shows his first real signs of frustration. He leans back on his knees as Triple H comes round and crawls towards the corner. The Animal just watches him, allowing him to make his way back up, struggling to do so. Batista stands back up and prepares to strike, and as Triple H turns round, Batista runs right at him, but The Game catches him with a drop toe hold.

Batista’s head hits the second turnbuckle pad, and The Game stands back up with a smirk on his face, but as he turns round, ORTON JUMPS UP FROM HIS KNEES AND PLANTS HIM WITH THE RKO!!!. . . . . The fans don’t know whether to boo or cheer as Orton, full of confidence, shimmies round on the mat and makes the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO, SOMEHOW THE GAME GETS HIS SHOULDER UP AND ORTON CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!. . . . . Orton leans back on his knees and stares in utter disbelief at the referee. Orton can’t believe it and stands up throwing a hissy fit, walking over to the apron and kicking the bottom rope. He turns round and sees Triple H starting to stir, and The Viper instantly calms down. He just stares at him, not taking his eyes off him as he retreats to the corner. Again the fans don’t know how to react as he almost salivates glaring at his fellow challenger squirming on the mat.

He then explodes out of the corner TO PUNT TRIPLE H IN THE HEAD, BUT NO, BATISTA STOPS HIM IN HIS TRACKS WITH A SPEAR!!!. . . . . The Game stands up looking incredibly relieved, but not for long as the WWE Champion runs right at him and clotheslines him over the top and down to the floor. With Orton sitting up, Batista turns round and calmly walks back towards his other challenger to pull him up from his feet, but Orton shoves him back, right in to the referee who falls to the mat, hitting his head.

Batista turns round and sees the ref isn’t moving, showing some concern, but as he turns back to face Orton, THE VIPER LEAPS UP OFF HIS FEET AND CONNECTS WITH THE RKO!!!. . . . . Orton doesn’t see the ref down and goes right for the cover, then turns to see the ref flat on his back. Orton’s livid and bangs his hands in to the mat. He crawls across and tries to shake him back to life, to no avail. The fans start to boo as we see TRIPLE H PULL A SLEDGEHAMMER OUT FROM UNDER THE APRON!!!. . . . .

Danger looms for Orton & Batista as The Game sneaks back in the ring behind the oblivious Legend Killer. The King of Kings stands up with his deadly ally in hand, and as Orton gives up trying to wake up the ref, he stands up and turns round IN TO A SHOT TO THE GUT FROM THE SLEDGEHAMMER!!!. . . . . Orton drops to his knees and THE GAME BRINGS IT DOWN TO HAMMER HIM IN THE HEAD TOO!!!. . . . . A ton of heat comes from the crowd as Orton just falls back in a heap, not moving as the sadistic Triple H stares down at him without an ounce of regret before kicking him under the bottom rope down to the floor.

He now turns his head to see the WWE Champion shifting round on his knees, trying to get back up. The Game takes a couple of steps back as Batista climbs his way back up without a clue as to what’s waiting for him. He turns round and the intense TRIPLE H RUNS AT HIM, DRIVING THE SLEDGEHAMMER TOWARDS HIS FACE, BUT BATISTA COUNTERS WITH A SPINEBUSTER TO A MASSIVE POP!!!. . . . . Triple H drops the sledgehammer and Batista grabs it to another big cheer. The Animal rises to his feet with The Game’s ally in hand, waiting calmly somehow as Triple H claws his way back up.

Triple H makes it up and turns round with Batista waiting to strike AND THE ANIMAL SWINGS IT AT THE GAME, BUT TRIPLE H DROPS TO HIS KNEES AND LOW BLOWS THE WWE CHAMPION TO A TON OF HEAT!!!. . . . . A ton if heat echoes around the Air Canada Center as Batista drops to the mat to the sadistic satisfaction of The King of Kings. Orton lies helplessly & motionless on the outside with his head busted open, but back inside Triple H rises to his feet and brings his sledgehammer with him with the fans still booing.

Batista struggles back up to his feet as Triple H sizes him up, getting ready to take his head off, and as The Animal makes it back up, THE GAME HAMMERS HIM WITH A VICIOUS SHOT TO THE SKULL WITH THE SLEDGEHAMMER!!!. . . . . The intense heat continues as The Game lets go of the sledgehammer and kicks it to the apron with the ref starting to come round. The crowd sense the end may well be near, and so does Triple H as he drags the dead weight that is Batista up from his feet in to position for THE PEDIGREE!!!. . . . .

The heat is incredible as Triple H stares disapprovingly in to the crowd before DRIVING THE ANIMAL’S HEAD IN TO THE CANVAS FOR THE PEDIGREE!!!. . . . . Batista’s not moving and The Game has to turn him over on to his back, then hooks the leg with the fans booing like mad as the referee slowly crawls across the mat to make the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

YES! WE HAVE A NEW WWE CHAMPION!!!

“The Game” plays to a bombardment of heat from the Canadian crowd and Triple H drops his head to the mat and throws his arms up in to the air. The WWE Championship is slid in to the ring and the new champion walks over to collect it with the ref still in a bad way. The Game lifts it up off the mat and climbs up to the second rope to pose with the title, lifting it up in to the air with the fans still crapping all over his victory.

The King of Kings couldn’t care less as he steps down and goes over to the opposite corner, posing again with the title on the second rope. He again steps off the ropes and this time leaves the ring, heading back up the ramp with his newly won title over his shoulder. He gets to the stage and turns back as Batista starts to come round, not knowing where he is as Triple H throws his arms up in to the air for his trademark pose with the WWE title too.


Winner: By pinfall, and the new WWE Champion, Triple H.

If Team Cena wins, Cena will face CM Punk at Night of Champions for the World Heavyweight Championship
Team Cena (John Cena, Matt Sydal, Bobby Lashley & Charlie Haas) w/Mickie James
vs. Team Punk (CM Punk, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez, Chris Jericho & Shelton Benjamin)


Spoiler for Elimination Recaps:

Sydal & Benjamin were going at it, both getting some close calls, and with the pace picking up, Sydal floored his former foe and leapt up in to the air for a standing moonsault. The Gold Standard blew the wind out of the United States Champion’s sails by bringing his knees up in to his stomach, and as they both made their way back up with Sydal winded, Benjamin stomped him in the gut and looked to have finished the job with a powerbomb in to the turnbuckle pads. Sydal though showed his courage by getting his shoulder up at the count of two. Shelton was focused, hell bent on putting his former rival away.

He watched him intently as he used the ropes to help him stand up again in the corner. Shelton though flew at him, racing across the mat for a stinger splash, but Sydal dodged it, stepping out of the corner to then drill the former United States Champion’s head in to the mat courtesy of a tornado DDT. The fans were cheering him on as he flew to the top rope with Shelton down & out, not moving beneath him before connecting with the Shooting Star Press to a big pop. The ref counted the fall and the fans cheered again as he counted to three with Benjamin being the first to bite the bullet.

Elimination #1: Shelton Benjamin by Matt Sydal

Del Rio-Ramirez was on a mission to make an impression at Sydal & Team Cena’s expense. He’d done a good job in wearing down the United States Champion and went to pull Sydal up to his feet, firing him in to the corner. The Mexican rookie ran in at him, but the resilient youngster lifted both his feet up in to Punk’s rookie’s face, sending him staggering out of the corner. The dazed Mexican turned back round as Sydal had raced his way up to the top rope, and he then came off the top towards Del Rio-Ramirez with a double knee takedown. Team Punk were relieved to see Del Rio-Ramirez comfortably kick out at two, but Sydal wasn’t done there.

He pulled the Mexican up from his knees to whip him in to the corner, quickly following in with a running elbow to Del Rio-Ramirez’s kisser. Again Sydal wasn’t done and he backed up to the opposite corner with his opponent slumped down against the pads. The United States Champion then charged across the ring at him, but Del Rio-Ramirez sprung to life and caught Sydal with a drop toe hold on to the second turnbuckle. Sydal’s head crashed in to the turnbuckle pad and the Mexican rookie reacted in a flash to roll him up, resting his feet on the ropes for leverage as the referee counted to three to a chorus of boos.

Elimination #2: Matt Sydal by Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez

Del Rio-Ramirez stood up with a big smile on his face as Sydal sat up furiously, looking at the referee with the Mexican laughing back at him, and as Sydal reluctantly left the ring, Del Rio-Ramirez signalled he wanted the United States Championship around his waist. As he was doing so though, Haas entered the ring and snuck up behind him, lifting him off his feet and planting him with the Olympic Slam. The fans’ boos quickly turned to cheers as the ref counted to three, putting Team Cena back on top.

Elimination #3: Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez by Charlie Haas

Haas took it to both Jericho and the Punk, going at it tooth & nail with the World Heavyweight Champion. They battled back & forth with Punk gaining the upper hand, but when Haas ducked a roundhouse kick, he looked all set for an upset when he slipped behind the World Champion, lifting him up off the mat for the Olympic Slam. The Straight-Edge Superstar though jumped down to his feet and planted him with a side slam before locking in the Anaconda Vice. Haas fought bravely with Punk desperately clutching on to make him tap, and eventually he did to level the numbers once more.

Elimination #4: Charlie Haas by CM Punk


Closing Minutes:
Punk stands back up looking pleased with himself, not seeing Lashley step through the ropes. The World Champion turns round and Lashley runs at him to take him down with a clothesline to a decent pop from the capacity crowd. Lashley’s as focused as ever, pouncing on Punk as he gets back up to stomp him in the gut. The monster shows off his strength by lifting Punk up in to the air with one arm for a DELAYED VERTICAL SUPLEX, EVENTUALLY BRINGING PUNK CRASHING DOWN IN TO THE MAT!!. . . . . The Toronto crowd cheer again, but Lashley isn’t done with him, just yet. He pulls him right back up and sends him back first in to the canvas again with a GUT-WRENCH SUPLEX!!. . . . . Punk’s hurting and Lashley looks to take advantage, hooking the champion’s leg for a cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . . No!

Punk gets his shoulder up and Lashley gets back up, bringing The Straight-Edge Superstar with him, scooping him up on to his shoulder. With Punk at his mercy, Lashley runs across the mat for a RUNNING POWERSLAM!!. . . . . No wait, Punk slips down behind him and shoves Lashley in to the turnbuckle pads. Lashley’s chest collides with the pads and quickly rolls him up, holding on to the tights as the oblivious ref makes the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

No, Lashley kicks out and both men hurry back up to their feet with Punk dropping Lashley on to the middle turnbuckle. Punk looks like one relieved World Champion right now as he crawls across the mat on his knees to tag Jericho. The self proclaimed best in the world steps in to the ring and goes after Lashley as the big man pulls himself back up to his feet. Jericho chops him hard across the chest, and again. The Canadian grabs him by the arm and tries for an irish whip to the opposite corner, but it’s reversed and Jericho’s back hits the pads.

Lashley runs in at him and nails him with a hard clothesline and steps back out of the corner with Jericho following him out, right in to a T-BONE SUPLEX!!. . . . . NO, JERICHO ESCAPES WITH A SERIES OF ELBOW SHOTS TO THE SIDE OF LASHLEY’ HEAD!!. . . . . The relieved Jericho turns back and runs the ropes, but runs right back in to Lashley, who grabs him around the upper torso with both arms AND HITS AN OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX!!. . . . .

The fans are cheering as Jericho sits up in pain, clearly feeling the effects from that suplex, but Lashley isn’t done with him. He drags Jericho back up from his knees behind him, grabbing him around the waist and again tosses him overhead with a FLIPPING RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!!. . . . . Jericho’s barely moving and Lashley crawls across on the mat to cover him with the ref dropping to his knees to make the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO!

Jericho battles to get his shoulder up, lifting his head up off the mat, definitely hurting right now as Lashley coolly returns to his feet and retreats to the corner, watching Jericho struggle back up to his feet. Punk’s sweating it out on the apron, starting to panic, and with Jericho struggling to get back up, the World Champion hits the ring, getting the full attention of the referee. He goes right over to Punk who stands firm in the middle of the ring, arguing right back with the ref as a pissed Cena flies through the ropes and tries to get at Punk with Lashley watching closely, letting the ref deal with it.

The ref turns round and tells Cena to get out of the ring, ushering him back towards the apron but Lashley isn’t happy about it. He goes to get rid of Punk, grabbing his shoulder, but the World Champion turns round and levels him with a FEROCIOUS ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!!. . . . . Lashley just falls back to the mat and a smirking Jericho crawls across to cover him as Punk leaves the ring with Cena complaining at the ref. Jericho yells at the ref to turn round, and he does, racing across to count Lashley’s shoulders. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3!

Elimination #5: Bobby Lashley by Chris Jericho

Cena stands there shaking his head with Jericho & Punk laughing, but as Jericho stands up, he sees Cena staring right at him. The smile quickly goes from Jericho’s face as Cena charges at him, taking him down with a clothesline to a heavy mixed reception, mainly boos as Jericho claws his way back up. Cena shuts out the boos and runs past Jericho in to the ropes, hits them and comes running back at Jericho to take him down with THE THROWBACK!!. . . . .

The cheers & boos continue from the divided crowd as the fired-up Cena jumps right on Jericho as he gets back up, lifting him up off his feet in to a SPIN-OUT POWERBOMB!!. . . . . It’s getting hot inside the Air Canada Center as stands up and looks right in to the stands holding his right hand up, waving it in to the crowd for the FIVE KNUCKLE SHUFFLE!!. . . . . He steps back in to the ropes and comes back to nail Jericho in the face to another mixture of cheers & boos as he hooks the leg for a cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

No! Jericho kicks out but Cena’s in complete control, and he knows it as he stands back up and locks his eyes on Jericho, struggling to get back up. Cena’s pumped, and Punk sees the danger, stepping between the ropes yet again. The ref’s right on him, not letting him getting near Cena, but Cena walks across and tells him to get out of the ring too, giving him a firm warning. Punk for once does as he’s told and steps back on the apron, and Cena turns his attention back to Jericho.

Cena bends down to pick Jericho up from his knees, but the Canadian catches him off guard and grabs his ankles, sweeping his legs and turning him over in to THE WALLS OF JERICHO!!!. . . . . Most of the crowd are cheering as Jericho turns him over and locks it in, putting pressure on Cena’s back. Punk’s looking on with a big smile on his face, shouting out encouragement at Jericho who really puts the pressure on Cena and taunts him, shouting at him to give it up. He doesn’t and desperately tries to fight the hold with some of the crowd urging him to tap too.

Punk joins in but Cena drags himself across the mat, trying to get towards the ropes. Some of the fans are cheering Cena’s name and they help him as he manages to fight his way towards the ropes, getting closer & closer with Jericho really panicking, but Cena reaches out, a matter of inches away and he drags himself closer, reaches out and grabs the bottom rope to a huge mixed reception. Most of the fans are booing, and both Jericho & Punk are pissed, and Jericho lets go at the count of four, standing up looking incredibly frustrated.

He looks down at Cena and in to the stands, then back at Cena as he tries to pull himself up using the ropes. Jericho’s seething as he watches him getting back up to his feet, and the Canadian runs past him in to the ropes, runs back and takes him down with a ONE ARM BULLDOG!!. . . . . Cena’s head hits the mat and he turns over on to his back, and Jericho stands up with his eyes lighting up. He runs in to the ropes, springboards and HITS THE LIONSAULT!!!. . . . . Jericho thinks he’s got it in the bag and wastes no time reaching to the side and hooking Cena’s leg as the ref runs across to make the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

NO!

Jericho leans back and can’t believe it. He stands up and gets in the referee’s face, telling him it should’ve been three, but the ref stands firm and makes it clear it was only two. Jericho doesn’t like what he hears and shrugs his shoulders, looking deflated as Cena again uses the ropes to help get to his knees. Jericho turns back round and goes after his opponent, but Cena rises up to his feet and lifts Jericho up on to his shoulders for THE F-U!!!. . . . . CENA WALKS AWAY FROM THE ROPES AND THROWS JERICHO DOWN, BUT JERICHO FLIPS TO THE SIDE AND LANDS ON HIS FEET!!!. . . . .

Cena’s stunned and turns round with Jericho running at him, BUT CENA COUNTERS WITH A DROP TOE HOLD IN TO THE STFU!!!. . . . . The crowd erupts again as Jericho immediately screams out in pain with Cena locking it in, but Punk races in to the ring and breaks it up by stamping on Cena’s back. The ref goes crazy at the unapologetic World Champion who just turns in to the crowd smirking, without a care in the world. Cena though pulls himself back up, and as Punk turns round, their eyes meet and Cena’s livid.

Cena stands up and goes for Punk who slips under the bottom rope to safety, but Cena follows to him another mixed reaction from the Canadian crowd. He chases him round the ring with Punk shocked & worried, but as he dives back in the ring under the bottom rope, Cena follows again and runs in to a RUNNING ENZUIGIRI FROM JERICHO!!!. . . . . Punk loves it and he steps back on to the apron as Jericho scurries across as quick as he can to make another cover with Cena spark out. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO!

Cena gets his shoulder up just as the ref was about to count to three and the crowd again react with a mixed response. Jericho can’t believe it, leaning back and looking up to the heavens. Punk though, he wants in, leaning over the ropes and shouting at Jericho. The Canadian obliges and tags his captain who smells blood. He shifts across on the apron as Cena starts to stir, looking very groggy indeed. He looks to be on another planet as Punk holds on to the top rope, waiting to strike, and as Cena makes it back up to his feet, looking shaky, he turns round and the World Champion springboards and HITS AIR PUNK!!. . . . .

The flying clothesline puts Cena down, but not for long as he fights on, but Punk’s ready for him. He pulls him up from his knees and sends him in to the corner, running right in at him and nailing him with a JUMPING KNEE SMASH!!. . . . . PUNK HOLDS ON TO CENA’S HEAD AND RUNS OUT OF THE CORNER, DRIVING CENA’S HEAD IN TO THE MAT WITH A RUNNING BULLDOG!!. . . . . Punk stands back up with a big smile on his face and signals for the GTS!!!. . . . . He puts his hands together and tilts his head against them with the crowd again split as the unsuspecting Cena sits up.

Punk’s looking confident, and as Cena stands up, he lifts him up off his feet and on to his shoulders for the GTS!!!. . . . . The crowd are going crazy, still split as Cena starts wriggling round and slips down to safety, catching the World Champion by surprise. He doesn’t have any time to react as Cena lifts him up off the mat and plants him with A SPIN-OUT POWERBOMB!!. . . . .

Cena makes his way back up with Punk down on the mat, and Cena once again signals for the FIVE KNUCKLE SHUFFLE, TAUNTING PUNK WITH THE “YOU CAN’T SEE ME” AND COMING BACK OFF THE ROPES TO DROP HIS FIST, BUT PUNK ROLLS TO THE SIDE AND UP TO HIS FEET, PLAYING POSSUM, AND AS BOTH MEN MAKE IT BACK UP, CENA TURNS ROUND IN TO A ROUNDHOUSE KICK!!!. . . . . Punk’s knocked Cena out and drops to his knees, hooking both legs and making the cover. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

NO! Punk sits up and looks down at Cena, not happy at all and shifts round in a hurry to apply the ANACONDA VICE!!!. . . . . Punk turns away at Cena’s face with the crowd still torn, some chanting “Let’s Go Cena” and others “Cena Sucks” as Cena fights to stay in the match, but it doesn’t look good for him. Punk shouts at him to tap but he doesn’t, clinging on, just, looking like he’s almost done. He holds on and starts to fight it, trying to drag himself towards the ropes with Punk still urging him to give it up.

With some of the fans still encouraging him, he keeps on fighting and drags himself closer to the apron with Punk looking worried, and Cena’s almost there, sticks out his leg and places it on the bottom rope to another huge mixed reaction. Jericho can’t believe it and shakes his head on the apron as Punk keeps the hold locked in, only letting go at the count of four.

He stands up with a face like thunder and sees Jericho calling for the tag, and he walks over to him to bring him back in to the action. Jericho coolly steps in to the ring and towards Cena as he uses the ropes to pull himself back up, looking like a dead man walking. Jericho’s revelling in it and waits for him to turn round, and as he does so, Jericho goes for THE CODEBREAKER!!!. . . . . Cena holds on to the top rope, grabs Jericho’s legs and flips forward for a JACKNIFE COVER!! . . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . .

NO! Jericho kicks out and both men rush back up to their feet. Jericho swings a wild right at him, but Cena ducks it and LIFTS HIM UP FOR THE F-U!!!. . . . . Punk storms the ring, but Cena sees him coming and drops Jericho down on to his knees to run at Punk and clothesline him down to the mat. Punk claws his way back up and staggers back in to the ropes, and Cena runs at him again, clotheslining him down to the floor with the fans split in their reaction.

Cena turns back round and sees Jericho running right at him, but Cena ducks under the arm and runs away from the ropes. Jericho puts the brakes on and charges back at Cena, scowling at him, but Cena catches him with a drop toe hold and LOCKS IN THE STFU!!!. . . . . Jericho’s in trouble, deep trouble and he’s screaming as Cena wrenches away at his face, trying to make him tap.

Jericho holds on, right hand raised but nowhere near the ropes. He can’t get anywhere near them as the intense Cena holds on, hold locked in tightly, red faced as Punk sits up on the outside, crawling to the apron just as Jericho reaches out one last time, no chance of escaping and gives up the fight, tapping out to a surprisingly big pop, leaving us with Cena & Punk to fight it out.

Elimination #6: Chris Jericho by John Cena

Jericho rolls over to the apron as Punk leans against it and realises what’s just happened and what’s about to happen. Cena stands back up and stares right at Punk who takes his time climbing back in to the ring. He stands up by the ropes and turns to the crowd, cheering like mad as Cena & Punk are about to face off with Cena’s potential title shot at Night of Champions at stake. They walk towards each other, eyes fixed firmly on the other and Punk starts to talk trash. Cena lets him talk, taking it well until Punk slaps him across the chops with a big grin on his face.

Cena smirks and then nails Punk with a hard right hand, putting the World Champion down. He’s not down for long and gets right back up, but Cena’s right there to fire him in to the ropes. Punk holds on to them though and Cena isn’t in the mood to hang around waiting and runs right at him, right in to an extended elbow from the World Champion. It sends him staggering away from the ropes, and Punk with his game face on charges back at Cena, but Cena takes him down to the mat in to an STFU!!!. . . . .

The crowd go nuts again as Punk’s forced to fight for survival with Cena torturing him. The panic is there for all to see in Punk’s eyes as he reaches his arm out, nowhere near the safety of the ropes, but Jericho stands back up on the apron right in front of Cena. Cena takes drastic action and stands back up to run at the apron, knocking Jericho down with a right hand. It’s met by cheers & boos as the struggling World Champion claws his way back up behind him. Cena turns round and runs back at him in to a spin kick to the gut from Punk, and The Straight-Edge Superstar runs in to the ropes for a SPRINGBOARD TORNADO DDT!!!. . . . .

Cena counters and throws him down to the mat to another mixed reaction. Cena walks up to Punk as he tries to get back up and pulls him up on to his shoulders for the F-U!!!. . . . . Cena stares in to the crowd intently and sends Punk crashing in to the canvas, fans still torn, but Jericho again climbs up on to the apron. Cena sees him and so does the ref, both livid and the ref goes over and tells Jericho to get down. The Canadian stands there arguing as Cena shakes his head, walks across and tells him to get down as a big pop with some boos breaking out.

Cena leaves it to the ref and turns round, getting SPEARED OUT OF HIS BOOTS BY EDGE!!!. . . . . WHERE THE HELL DID HE COME FROM?!!!. . . . . Edge stares down smirking at Edge as Jericho keeps arguing with the ref, and the Toronto born superstar stands up and drags Punk on top of Cena with the World Champion coming to, still groggy but places his arm out on his chest as Edge makes his getaway. Jericho jumps down and the ref turns round, rushes across and drops to his knees to make the count. . . . .

1. . . . .

2. . . . .

. . . . .

. . . . . 3?

YES, 3! DING DING DING, TEAM PUNK WINS!!!

Elimination #7: John Cena by CM Punk

“This Fire Burns” plays to a very mixed reaction with Jericho & Edge smiling big time on the outside and they join Punk in the ring, helping him up as the confused referee collects his World Heavyweight Championship. He hands it over to him and raises his hand with Punk smirking big time, looking very smug, as do Edge & Jericho with Cena starting to stir. Del Rio-Ramirez comes out and joins his mentor, congratulating him as he, Edge & Jericho leave the ring.

They head up the ramp poking fun at the crowd, turning back halfway up as Cena sits up absolutely furious with Punk once again lifting his title up in to the air defiantly, pointing to himself in the process, making sure Cena knows it belongs to him as Cena glares at him, letting him know this isn’t over as the show comes to a close with Punk just grinning back at him along with his team.


Winners: Team Punk.

Survivor: CM Punk.

Re: WWE: A Strong Response

Survivor Series Review

Opening the pay per view with Edge was the way to do it considering it is in Edge's hometown as well as Christian's, and considering the 2 of them are brothers kayfabe, to see the brothers interacting there for a good second was great and then the sibling rivalry boils over when Edge instigates and then Christian tries to one-up his older brother by calling him a coward and the 2 brothers coming to blows and then Edge finishing off the attack on his brother making sure Christian won't compete tonight, and then Tazz the Smackdown GM setting things right by having Edge taken out of the match to make it even and then Edge gets thrown out by Tazz with the security escorting Edge out, and then Team Punk trying not to get mad but keeping their cool was great

Team HBK vs Team Miz, I expected Miz's team to come out on top but none the less it was a great match all around with the sole survivors being HBK, Kofi, and HBK's protege Bryan Danielson with Burke being eliminated just shows that HBK & Miz's rivalry will be over at this point, unless you plan on keeping this rivalry up, if you do, more power to you and either man Miz or HBK should go for the WWE Title now

Undertaker beating Ted DiBiase was the match of the night by far, as this match really puts DiBiase over as a future main eventer as he held his own against The Dead Man and actually had him beat, but Taker just proved to be too much for DiBiase, maybe now DiBiase and Taker's rivalry can end now, and DiBiase can move on to bigger things namely the WWE Championship

Team RAW beating Team Smackdown, I was expecting a Smackdown victory because over the years when it comes to brand supremacy Smackdown has always beaten RAW, but RAW beating them and Sheamus being the sole survivor, I love it, hopefully we get to see Sheamus become WWE Champion before the year is over in 2008, if not Sheamus will win the WWE Title in 2009, 2009 will be the year of Sheamus

Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara becoming the new World Tag Team Champions beating Kaval & Daniels and Team Omega, I love it, because they will actually bring life to the tag team division on RAW and actually make the tag division exciting again

Big Show vs JBL Hell In a Cell Loser Leaves Town, loser leaves the WWE, Show ending JBL's career, and Show ending Vince's son's career is great because now Vince will know not to cross Show, but I can't see Vince just taking this, I expect Vince to come for some retribution where Big Show is concerned, if not Big Show I can see him going for the WWE Championship

Triple H becoming the new WWE Champion, I am literally raging right now, because this is definitely not what I expected, for HHH to walk out as champion, beating both Batista and my man Orton to get this done, I really hope my man Randy Orton doesn't take this loss lying down and Orton punts HHH's head off, if he does, I would say that it couldn't happen to a nicer guy, and then HHH would have only been champion for 24 hours, then HHH has to vacate the title, that's what my man Orton did to Batista in real life after Batista won the title, the next night on RAW Orton put Batista on the shelf and Batista had to vacate the title, I hope the same thing happens on RAW with HHH coming out the next night on RAW and Orton attacks HHH along with Darren Young and they put HHH on the shelf, nothing would please me more to see that, Orton deserved the WWE Title and he still does, and I see Orton going on the warpath now on RAW along with Batista too


Team Punk winning against Team Cena all because of Edge interfering was great, and then Jericho distracting the ref was great while all this happened, and now Cena will not get his opportunity at the WHC, now that makes me happy

But overall really great Survivor Series, and I can't wait until RAW

And I can't wait until Night of Champions, because after that is Royal Rumble 2009
