>Night of Champions 2008<

>Confirmed Matches<




For the last three months since John Cena returned to Smackdown from Raw with a guaranteed shot at the World Heavyweight Championship at Night of Champions if he could lead a team to victory at Survivor Series, resentment & jealousy instantly rose to the surface in the locker room. The most resistance came from CM Punk, and the World Champion wasn’t short of finding any allies, and despite defeating Team Cena at Survivor Series, he finds himself going head-to-head with Cena for the title. After all he’s said about Cena, will Punk live to regret or his words or will he be able to back them up in style and head into the New Year still the World Heavyweight Champion?




Having lost the WWE Championship at Survivor Series in a triple threat match against Randy Orton and the new WWE Champion, Triple H, ‘The Animal’ Batista has exercised his rematch clause for Night of Champions when he will go one-on-one with The Game. They will meet in a 3 Stages of Hell match that will leave us in no doubt whatsoever who deserves to be the WWE Champion. Can Batista overcome his former Evolution team-mate and regain the title he lost a matter of weeks ago?




‘The Celtic Warrior’ Sheamus has been nothing short of impressive since debuting earlier this year, quickly working his way to the Intercontinental Championship almost three months ago, however having now tasted defeat for the first time, he looks vulnerable. The man to inflict that defeat was Kofi Kingston and now he’s looking to repeat that upset to regain the title he lost to Ted DiBiase at SummerSlam in highly controversial circumstances. It’s clear he’s got to the Irishman, and now he appears to be back in the groove he has every chance of getting his hands on the Intercontinental Championship for a second time.




It’s been an incredible year for Matt Sydal, and the United States Champion & 2008 King of the Ring will be looking to end it in style by retaining the United States title when he locks horns with Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez. The Mexican newcomer has an impressive track record in Mexico and already has two victories over Sydal to his name, both somewhat controversial it has to be said, but he has the chance to make it three and become the new United States Champion if he can pin Sydal for a third time. Will he be able to do just that and without the use of the ropes this time, or will Sydal end 2008 the way he’s stormed through it until now?




These two men have had their problems from pretty much the moment J-Red was announced as Chavo Guerrero’s rookie, and it didn’t take long for Red to make an impression, not that his mentor was pleased for him. A win over Chavo certainly didn’t help matters, neither did Red winning a shot at the Cruiserweight Champion, battling his way past Chavo to get there. Now Red has the title, things still haven’t improved, and with the title at stake, they both have something more to fight for in what will be one incredibly competitive contest.




These two groups will collide head on for the WWE Tag Team titles The Empire wanted vacated after they broke Harry Smith’s ankle, only for Tazz to hand Smith’s title to his long term friend & former rookie, TJ Wilson. He will join forces with Paul Burchill to take on Wade Barrett & Drew McIntyre in what is sure to be one almighty battle.




The Epitome of Excellence still feel as if they were robbed of the World Tag Team titles after being placed in a triple threat match at Survivor Series having already won their place in the final of the tournament final where their opponents drew in their semi final clash. Rey Mysterio & Mystico went on to win that match and claim the titles Daniels & Kaval felt should be theirs, however now they have the opportunity to fight for the titles once again, but whether they will leave Night of Champions with the titles they believe should belong to them remains to be seen.




Standing in front of Melina isn’t just arguably the biggest challenge of her career to date, but the most intimidating diva in WWE history in Queen Kong. This behemoth has run riot for weeks, running over the Women’s Champion on a couple of occasions too. After earning a shot at the women’s title having emerged victorious in a battle royal, the title & Melina are firmly fixed in her sights. The odds are stacked highly against Melina, but does she have what it takes to overcome those massive odds and derail Kong’s unstoppable charge?




It takes a lot to get under the skin of The Glamazon but Michelle McCool has well & truly done that. Her antics may have been underhand & cowardly at times but McCool has managed to score two victories over Beth in back-to-back weeks recently. With that said she doesn’t hold the Diva’s Championship, but she will get that chance again when they meet again one-on-one for Beth’s title, and McCool must know she’ll have to do a hell of a lot to wrestle it away from The Glamazon.


*All confirmed matches will be updated here, the official Night of Champions page.

Monday Night Raw
Monday 24th November 2008
Roberts Municipal Stadium
Evansville, Indiana




A recap of last week’s show was shown, highlighting Batista’s declaration at the start of the show that he was going to get his rematch for the WWE Championship and take back his title, confirmed by Eric Bischoff for Night of Champions before he made a main event that would see Batista team up with The Undertaker to take on Triple H & The Miz. The ending of the main event was then shown where Batista took out Triple H before finishing off The Miz with the Batista Bomb and staring intently down at The Game on the outside as the show drew to a close in Japan.


“In the End” hit to a massive pop and ‘The Animal’ Batista headed down to the ring looking fairly relaxed in his casual clothes, collected a microphone off the apron and looked into the crowd with the fans still cheering him. As his music then cut, he said that last week he found out he was getting his rematch for the WWE Championship at Night of Champions but how Triple H told him he had no chance of getting the title back. He then went on to say that after their tag team match last week, The Game might feel differently. He told the fans that he sent Triple H a statement that he means business and he wants his title back. The fans approved and he said that he saw it in Triple H’s eyes that he knows he’s in for a fight but how this is more than just a match, it’s about the WWE Championship too and revenge.

He said he didn’t just want to take back the title but beat the crap out of him too, saying that he doesn’t want it to be just a normal match, he wants to settle this in a way where there’ll be no controversy and one definite winner. He carried on to say that he had the solution in which they’ll find out who deserves to be champion, proposing a match rarely seen, a 3 Stages of Hell match. The fans were eating up his idea and The Animal called on the WWE Champion to give him an answer, and he didn’t have to wait long. “The Game” blasted out and the WWE Champion, Triple H calmly but slowly walked out to the stage and stopped to look into the crowd that were booing the hell out of him. He entered the ring having stared at Batista all the way down the ramp and walked past him to get a microphone of his own.

Triple H got real close to Batista and told him without any fear at all that he accepted the challenge. Batista simply stared at him with The Game really meaning business, telling Batista that it wasn’t a good idea and how ideas & intelligence have never been The Animal’s strong point. He then told him to look at what he’d done to Ric Flair at SummerSlam and then Randy Orton at Survivor Series, reminding him how he put them both on the shelf before letting Batista know he’s next to leave one just member of Evolution standing, the man who beat him at Survivor Series to become a 12 time world champion. Batista cut in and told Hunter he agreed with him, that there would be just one member of Evolution left standing, but it wouldn’t be Triple H, it’d be him.

He went on to tell The Game that it wasn’t about Evolution anymore and hadn’t been for a long time and how it’s not about him & Randy, Hunter & Randy, it’s about them and the WWE Championship. He firmly reminded his former mentor how he defeated him at WrestleMania 21 to win his first title and a couple more times after that but said he knew Triple H hadn’t forgotten that, which is why he had to resort to using a sledgehammer to beat him and take his title at Survivor Series. The Game disagreed strongly and told him he’d prove it at Night of Champions. This time Batista disagreed and told Triple H how he’s had his number the last two weeks and how he’s always seen through him, how he’s never changed, he’s the same old selfish, underhand Triple H he’s always been.

He then told Triple H that the last two weeks he’s shown he’s up for the fight and let him know he’s not going to let up until he’s the WWE Champion again. The Game got right in his face and slowly but assertively told him that was going to happen while raising his title up in the air to a ton of heat. They stared right in to each other’s eyes before Batista nodded and then hammered the WWE Champion to a huge cheer. He nailed him a couple more times before firing Triple H into the ropes and planting him with a spine-buster. The crowd were going nuts as the intense Batista dragged him right back up, setting him up for the Batista Bomb, and hit it, sending The Game crashing into the canvas to an almighty roar from the Indiana crowd.

He wasn’t done there though and turned his head, looking outside the ring, then left to look under the apron, pulling out a sledgehammer to an even bigger pop. He stood up and stared at his opponent’s trusty ally before slipping back in the ring as the WWE Champion was rolling on to his side. Batista was looking so menacing and just watched his bitter rival struggle up on to one knee, and The Animal was getting ready to explode, his sights set on Triple H. As The Game made it back up and turned round, Batista charged across the mat and drove the sledgehammer at his head, but Triple H ducked it and thrust himself to safety, slipping out of the ring and reaching back inside to grab his title. He & Batista glared at each other as The Animal’s music hit again to another big pop with Batista frustrated to see Triple H backing away from ringside very lucky to have escaped, and he knew it.

We were then taken backstage where Eric Bischoff was walking through the halls of the arena, not as laid back as he has been recently, opening & closing some locker room doors. He then saw Ezekiel Jackson, Ted DiBiase’s former rookie, seemingly warming up for a match. He got a grilling from Bischoff who asked him if he knew where Ted was, but Jackson said he didn’t. It wasn’t the answer he wanted and he told Jackson that if he did see Ted or heard from him to tell him he better there next week because even if he didn’t turn up tonight, he’d be rearranging the rematch from Survivor Series against The Undertaker for next week instead. Jackson didn’t respond this time as the ticked off Head of Authority headed off down the hall in his pursuit of DiBiase, leaving Jackson to get ready for action.


{Commercial Break}

The WWE Champion, Triple H was shown walking backstage, towards the parking lot, not looking at all happy. As he then opened the door and walked through, his name was called and the camera panned to show Batista following him. The Animal followed him outside and called his name again as Triple H opened his car door. The Game stopped & looked angrily in his direction and Batista walked closer towards him to tell him that he won’t be able to run away at Night of Champions and to get used to the fact he’s getting his title back. Triple H shrugged his shoulders and stepped inside his car and then drove off, leaving Batista there showing a brief smile, knowing full well he’s inside The Game’s head.

*The Opening Match*
Hardcore Holly vs. Ezekiel Jackson

Jackson dominated for the most part despite some expected resilience from the veteran who did manage to turn the tables after catching the big man with a picture perfect standing dropkick. The momentum didn’t last for long though and Jackson held on to his opponent when Holly came off the second rope for a diving cross body, only to get thrown about like a rag doll courtesy of a fallaway slam. Holly was in bad shape and Jackson didn’t wait around or delay the inevitable, going right after him and dragging him up off the mat to finish the contest with The Book of Ezekiel, completing a fairly routine victory which he didn’t celebrate in the slightest, simply staring down at his fallen opponent after getting his arm raised by the referee.

Winner: Ezekiel Jackson by pinfall.


A quick video was shown of Gail Kim and the Women’s Champion, Melina making their way through the back with Gail in action against Queen Kong after the break!

{Commercial Break}

*Match 2*
Gail Kim w/Melina
vs. Queen Kong

The Women’s Champion, Melina watched on from Gail’s corner, showing her some much needed support as she stepped inside the ring with the dangerous Kong who tasted victory in her debut match last week. Kim to her credit gave Kong a run for her money unlike Kelly Kelly the week before, and after being dominated in the early going, she turned it round on Kong after dodging a body avalanche. Kong staggered out of the corner as Gail then climbed her way up to the top rope where she then connected with a front missile dropkick to a decent pop.

The crowd rallied behind her as she took the fight to the monster, coming so close after a hurricanrana where she held on for a pin, but Kong just kicked out. The fans & Melina could sense an upset, and after coming even closer after an enzuigiri, Gail hit the dizzy heights of the top rope again, but this time she missed with a diving leg drop. As both divas then made their way back up, Kim put Kong on the back foot before running back into the ropes, but as she ran back, Kong came to life and caught her with one hell of a samoan drop.

Kim was all but out when Kong followed that up by standing up and running back into the ropes to come back for a monstrous splash. Kim wasn’t moving, but as Kong went for the cover and the ref counted to two, she pulled her opponent’s head up off the mat, not satisfied at ending it there. Melina was looking concerned in her friend’s corner and she was helpless as Kong menacingly made her way back up to her feet, bringing Kim up with her before planting her with the sit-out power-bomb to this time pick up the win to leave Gail flat on her back and absolutely motionless after a brave effort.

Kong got her arm raised and stared scarily into the stands as Melina hit the ring to check on Gail, but as Kong turned round to see the Women’s Champion there, she grabbed her by the hair and pulled her up to her feet. Melina screamed out in shock & horror, and Kong turned her round, staring at her worried face before headbutting her down to the canvas. She wasn’t done there though and whipped her into the corner, this time connecting with the Body Avalanche and Melina fell flat on her face. Kong’s music hit as she surveyed the wreckage completely emotionlessly before heading back up the ramp while giving the fans some scary looks.

Winner: Queen Kong by pinfall.


Justin Gabriel & The Big Show were shown walking through the back with Gabriel dressed for action!

{Commercial Break}

Still seemingly looking for Ted DiBiase backstage was Eric Bischoff, a lot angrier than he was earlier on, and he got angrier when he turned a corner and stopped. The camera then zoomed out to show The Miz also stop dead, staring in his boss’s direction. The Miz was in his street clothes and Bischoff walked right up to him, letting him know without saying a word how he was feeling. Even The Miz kept his mouth shut and listened to his boss, and Bischoff told him he heard what he did to Todd Grisham last week and how furious he was to hear how he threatened & put his hands on one of his staff.

He then called Miz a coward and told him how pissed he was a week earlier too when he walked out of his match with The Undertaker, and then a light bulb went off above his head. With The Miz still keeping his mouth shut for a change, Bischoff said that since he couldn’t find DiBiase he was going to have Miz take his place, and to make sure Miz didn’t walk out this time, he was making it a no count-out match. Miz stood there not looking at all happy at the prospect of taking on The Undertaker as Bischoff then left the scene, appearing a lot calmer and slightly pleased with himself.


*Match 3*
Justin Gabriel w/The Big Show
vs. Orlando Jordan

With The Big Show in his former rookie’s corner, Gabriel gave the crowd something to get excited about with an exciting & impressive display against the former United States Champion. Jordan didn’t let him have it all his own way though, but despite fighting his way into control of the match, Jordan let it slip when the South African high flyer came back off the ropes as OJ ducked his head. Gabriel hit a corkscrew flip over his opponent and then caught him with a jumping heel kick.

With Jordan reeling as he made his way back up, Gabriel took full advantage to fire him into the corner, following in with a running cross body. Jordan fell forward and Gabriel steadied himself on the apron, watching closely as his opponent clawed his way back up, turning right round to see the South African fly through the sky, coming down on OJ for a springboard cross-body.

He only got a two count, but as they made their way back up, Gabriel ducked a wild clothesline and took his opponent’s head off with a super kick. Jordan was out for the count but Gabriel dragged him towards the corner, flew up to the top rope and wrapped up the win with an impressive 45o splash to a big pop from the fans. Big Show applauded him and joined him in the ring, congratulating him on another solid outing for the young South African.

Winner: Justin Gabriel by pinfall.


A very calm looking Kofi Kingston was shown walking through the back, ready for action after the break!

{Commercial Break}

Justin Gabriel
was shown walking backstage after his victory before the break with his former mentor, The Big Show. The World’s Largest Athlete congratulated him on his victory and told him how well he’s doing as well as how proud he is of him. He also told Gabriel that he thinks he can go a long way if he keeps going the way is, and then Brie & Nikki, the Bella twins walked into the shot and were staring lustfully at the young South African, noticed by The Big Show.

They introduced themselves and gently grazed his arms before walking away while playing with their hair, whispering about how cute they thought he was, slightly embarrassing Gabriel. Show smiled and told his former rookie it looked like he was making an impression on other people too, but Gabriel jokingly told him to shut up before telling him he needed a shower and asking if he wanted to go get a drink or something to eat after he’s done. Show was up for it and Gabriel told him he wouldn’t be long as he headed up the hallway leaving Show smiling.

We got a recap from last week of the Intercontinental Championship match between Carlito and the defending champion, Sheamus, won after a devastating Brogue Kick from The Celtic Warrior. Sheamus wasn’t done there and went back after the Puerto Rican until Kofi Kingston saved the day, rushing down to the ring and eventually nailing him with the Trouble in Paradise.


*Match 4*
Kofi Kingston vs. Zack Ryder

Kofi was well over with the Indiana crowd, but Ryder gave them something to worry about. He didn’t let Kofi have it all his way and came close to securing an upset after connecting with a swinging neck-breaker. The exciting Jamaican though was up to the challenge and turned things round back into his favour when he caught Zack with a pendulum kick to counter the onrushing New Jersey native’s attack.

Kofi climbed up to the top rope and connected with a high impact cross-body. It was only enough for a two count but Kofi took it on the chin and seized the initiative by catching Ryder with a high angle reverse elbow smash followed up with the Boom Drop. Ryder was rattled and fell victim to the Trouble in Paradise with Kofi picking up the victory to the delight of the Evansville fans.

He hit the ropes to celebrate his win, but as he stepped down off the ropes, he saw someone walk out to the stage, catching his full attention. Kofi look stunned and took a second look as the mystery man stared down somewhat angrily at him before turning round and heading backstage. Kofi was still stunned and left the ring, pacing back up the ramp in pursuit of whoever that man was.

Spoiler for Mystery Man:



Winner: Kofi Kingston by pinfall.


JTG & Homicide were shown walking through the back, as then were Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig, all looking focused for their upcoming match!

{Commercial Break}

Kofi Kingston
was shown pacing through the back, clearly on the hunt for the man he saw after his match, but he quickly had company when he was jumped by an angry Sheamus. The Intercontinental Champion clubbed him down to his knees and stomped all over Kofi, who broke his undefeated streak two weeks ago. The incensed Irishman pulled him up to his feet and hammered with some hard right hands before tossing him through a door that came off its hinges with Kofi falling on top of it as he hit the ground. Sheamus stared down at him with a look of complete contempt before walking off, and then the same guy who appeared on the stage at the end of Kofi’s match walked into the shot and also stared down at Kofi, not showing any compassion for him either before he too he left the scene with Kofi down & out.

A recap from last week’s match between Homicide & Zack Ryder was shown where Homicide came out on top after the Gringo Killa (a back-to-back piledriver), but as JTG (his former mentor) joined him in the ring to congratulate him, Homicide turned his back on him and left the ring, leaving JTG and the fans shocked & confused.


*Match 5*
JTG & Homicide
vs. Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig

There was a little tension between JTG & Homicide throughout with Homicide not paying too much attention to his former mentor. In the ring however, he was focused and more than up to the challenge. His fellow former rookie, Joe Hennig found himself on the wrong end of the Brooklyn native’s onslaught. It looked like he’d done enough to put Hennig away after a frog splash, but Cody broke up the cover at two by racing into the ring and stomping on Homicide’s head.

Both Homicide & Hennig then crawled across to tag in their partners, and after a quick burst from JTG, Cody turned the match in his & Hennig’s favour when he ducked a diving leg lariat before taking JTG down as he stood back up with an Alabama Slam. JTG clawed his way back up with Rhodes circling him, psyching himself to finish it, and he did with the Cross Rhodes. Homicide didn’t look at all bothered on the apron and headed straight to the back as Hennig & Rhodes celebrated with Cody making a point to the fans, gesturing furiously as JTG sat up and saw his partner gone.

Winners: Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig by pinfall.


The World Tag Team Champions, Rey Mysterio & Mystico were shown making their way through the back with Rey in action up next!

{Commercial Break}

Homicide
was walking through the production area when JTG caught up with him and spun him round, getting up in his grill about why he walked out on him. Homicide told his former mentor he was exactly that, asking JTG what he wanted from him and telling him that he didn’t ask for the match before saying they’re done with each other. JTG wasn’t happy as Homicide just turned round and tried walking off, then grabbed him by the arm, but Homicide turned round and knocked him down to the floor with a swift right hand. He then walked up off the hallway and JTG sat up holding his jaw, glaring furiously in the direction of his former rookie.

*Match 6*
Rey Mysterio w/Mystico
vs. Kaval w/Christopher Daniels

Before the match started, Daniels & Kaval walked out to the stage with Mysterio & Mystico in the ring, and Daniels had a microphone. He spoke of how he & Kaval were cheated out of the titles at Survivor Series but that they wanted to put that right by asking Rey & Mystico to do the right thing and give them a title match at Night of Champions. He complimented the champions and said that they deserved to be champions for doing the job on the night as well as being athletes they respect but again asked them to give them what they know they deserve.

Rey got himself a microphone and admitted that there was some truth to what Daniels said before accepting the challenge. Daniels thanked Rey before heading down to the ring with Kaval. Rey & Kaval put on a great match, both fiercely determined to come out on top, Kaval especially. He was left devastated & shocked when Rey got his shoulder up following the Tidal Wave, a springboard roundhouse kick after dodging a springboard reverse cross body. He couldn’t believe his eyes, but the calm figure of Daniels showed him some much needed encouragement from the outside.

Kaval tried to wrap up the contest, going up top for the Warrior’s Way, but Rey rolled out of the way to safety, much to the relief of the nervous Evansville crowd. The frustration began to show again and he quickly tried to get Rey into position for the Dragon Clutch. Mysterio was having none of it and slipped away from his opponent’s clutches, not at all helping Kaval’s mood. He tried to grab Rey but the Mexican ducked and ran through into the ropes to come back with a spinning wheel kick.

Both men pulled themselves back up and Rey leapt up into action, hitting the Mysterio-Rana, but Kaval kicked out. Rey kept on going though and helped Kaval up, trying for an irish whip. Kaval reversed it, but as Rey came racing back, he countered with a tilt-a-whirl head-scissors takedown, putting Kaval onto the middle ropes. The crowd were going crazy for Mysterio as he dialled up for 619 and nailed it to a huge roar.

Daniels could only look on nervously as Rey steadied himself on the apron before connecting with a springboard splash to pick up an impressive victory rolling into Night of Champions. Mystico joined his partner in the ring with the fans cheering wildly, not met by too much displeasure from Daniels as Kaval rolled under the bottom rope to leave Mysterio celebrating in front of the delighted Indiana crowd, giving Daniels & Kaval something to think about.

Winner: Rey Mysterio by pinfall.


Looking very focused indeed, The Miz was shown walking through the back with the main event a matter of minutes away!

{Commercial Break}



>Coming Soon!<

*The Main Event*
No Count-Out Match
The Undertaker vs. The Miz

The Miz didn’t look at all happy being in the ring with The Undertaker, and when he was on the verge of defeat in place for a chokeslam, he kicked Taker in the crown jewels, getting himself disqualified in the process. The fans didn’t like it one bit, and neither did Eric Bischoff as he walked out to the stage with The Miz heading back up the ramp. He was told in no uncertain terms to go back with Bischoff restarting the match making it not just a no count-out match but a no disqualification match. The crowd loved it but Miz didn’t, reluctantly going back after being told to by Bischoff.

The Undertaker was ready & waiting for him, looking as menacing as ever, and Miz found himself on the wrong end of an old fashioned beatdown from The Dead-Man. Mr. Hollywood however didn’t accept defeat and fought his way into the contest, ducking a big boot from the onrushing phenom after the snake eyes. Miz took full advantage and grabbed Taker’s head to take him down with a reverse DDT, but it wasn’t enough to pick up the win. He managed to keep The Dead-Man grounded for a while and then switched gears by looking to turn the no disqualification stipulation in his favour by getting a steel chair from ringside.

The fans were looking worried for their hero, much to the amusement of The Miz who was feeling his way into it. He even taunted the phenom as he prepared to take his head off, and as Taker made it up he turned round into a hellacious shot from the steel. It put Taker down and Miz went for the cover, taking his time looking very confident, but when Taker got his shoulder up he was left gobsmacked with the fans going nuts. He went crazy at the referee, insisting it was a three when it wasn’t, reminded of that by the ref.

Miz then looked down and saw his opponent coming to, and he went back to work and picked up the chair again. He urged The Dead-Man to get back up, steel chair in hand, and as he swung the chair this time, Taker grabbed him by the throat and planted him with a chokeslam to a huge pop. The phenom glared down at his fallen opponent with fury and then grabbed the chair himself, watching intently as Miz slowly came round before struggling back up to his feet, only to get his head taken off with a shot from the steel chair.

With the fans cheering, Taker dropped the weapon and signalled for the end before dragging his lifeless opponent back up, scooping him up into place for the Tombstone Piledriver, hitting it and drilling Miz’s head into the canvas to earn himself a victory in front of the delighted Evansville faithful. Taker dropped to one knee after the bell for his usual post match ritual with just a few spotlights shining down on him as the show came to a close.

Winner: The Undertaker by pinfall.

>Headlines!<

>Hell Awaits at Night of Champions!<



We already learned last week that Batista & Triple H would lock horns for the WWE Championship at Night of Champions, however last night we found out that they’re both headed straight for hell.

The former champion, Batista was the one who laid down the challenge to the man who took his title from him at Survivor Series thanks to a huge assist from his trusty sledgehammer, getting The Game to agree to a Three Stages of Hell match with the winner leaving Night of Champions as the undisputed WWE Champion. Moments later all hell broke loose and the challenger sent his former Evolution team-mate a strong statement that he’s more than ready for the battle that awaits, and just as it looked like Triple H was about to find himself on the wrong end of a sledgehammer shot for a change, he dodged the bullet and made his escape, knowing full well he has a massive fight on his hands to retain the title he took from The Animal when they meet in four weeks.



>Daniels & Kaval Fighting for Justice & Gold!<


The Epitome of Excellence haven’t been shy in stating their opinion of how they feel they should be the World Tag Team Champions over the controversial end to the tournament that saw them fail to capture the titles at Survivor Series in the triple threat match in which Rey Mysterio & Mystico walked out the victors.

Christopher Daniels & Kaval may have a point in how the triple threat match came about, and they weren’t the team to lose the match at Survivor Series, but most importantly they were able to persuade the Mexican duo last night to give them an opportunity to become the World Tag Team Champions at Night of Champions. Mysterio gave them what they wanted before going on to beat Kaval to let the challengers know that despite the circumstances of the end to the tournament, he & Mystico are worthy champions that will be incredibly difficult to overcome when they meet for the gold in Cleveland at the year’s end.

Friday Night Smackdown ‘Live!’
Friday 28th November 2008
Qwest Center
Omaha, Nebraska




A recap from last week’s show was shown where CM Punk opened the show complementing Tazz’s decision to give 24 Smackdown superstars a shot at fighting for his World Heavyweight Championship at Night of Champions when Edge and then John Cena joined him in the ring to stake their own claims for facing him for the gold. Cena let them both know he’s going to fight his way to a world title shot like they wanted, stating that he’s going to make up for what happened at Survivor Series when they screwed him & his team out of victory.

Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley then joined the party and excused Cena & Edge before letting Punk know she could’ve fired him for putting his hands on her the week before, choosing instead to give him an official warning, making it clear that there a lot of eyes on his actions. She then went on to make a huge main event for the Australian crowd that would see Cena team up with Shawn Michaels to take on Punk & Edge.

The Heartbreak Kid’s interview where he was jumped by Punk & Edge was then shown before the match itself when he hobbled out to join Cena after it started, eventually ending up on the losing team when Punk caught a distracted Cena with the GTS. The World Champion then got a microphone and announced he would remain World Champion no matter who he faces at Night of Champions before telling Stephanie she could kiss his ass at the end of the show.


The World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk hit the stage to a ton of heat but with a big smile on his face, posing with his world title before heading off down the ramp and into the ring, picking a microphone up off the apron in the process. He soaked up the boos without a care in the world and went on to talk about how he felt he’d been underestimated since he became World Champion by the fans, fellow superstars & management. He stated it was his six month anniversary as the World Heavyweight Champion and that he knows he’s proven himself as a deserving champion and they could ask Shawn Michaels if they didn’t agree with him, reminding them how he beat H.B.K., one of the best in the business at SummerSlam.

He defiantly said that he’s accomplished everything he’s set out to despite the best efforts of the likes of Tazz & Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley, then let the fans know that he’s had to deal with management trying to engineer a plan to get his title off his shoulders and onto Cena’s for the last couple of months and how he’s dealt with everything they’ve thrown at him. He then said that he’ll continue to do just that and wanted Tazz & Stephanie to look back at the last month to see how effectively & efficiently he’s dealt with their plan. The Straight-Edge Superstar carried on, stating that even if Cena did make it to Night of Champions which he said he was sure he would be helped all the way by his friends in high places, Cena won’t take his title, pointing again to last week when he beat Cena in the middle of the ring just as he did at Survivor Series.

That brought out John Cena to a largely positive reception with some boos mixed in, but Punk wasn’t bothered by his rival’s presence. Cena meant business and after barging his way past Punk to get a microphone he said he wanted to cut past all the crap he’s heard from him week in week out, cutting right to the chase and asking Punk what kind of champion he thinks he really is. He told Punk he thought he was his gutless and said the only reason Punk doesn’t want to face him at Night of Champions is because he knows he can take his title from him, telling Punk he was right to be worried and how right now he wanted to beat the hell out of him and shut his mouth as well as take his title. With the crowd cheering, Punk smirked and asked Cena if he was really that naive, going over all the title matches or opportunities he’s had in the past year.

Punk went over each one, WrestleMania, SummerSlam & Survivor Series and asked him how many of those were handed to him on a plate, answering for him, stating the answer was none. Punk told Cena the facts don’t lie, it’s there for all to see and how Tazz just threw everything in front of him to leave Raw to move over to Smackdown, proving everything he’s ever said about him, calling him a protected, manufactured management tool that anyone with half a brain could see for themselves. He insulted the Nebraska fans by saying that obviously didn’t include them but how everyone in the back is sick of being overlooked & undervalued in favour of someone as talentless as Cena. That set Cena off and he got right in Punk’s face, slowly but assertively telling the World Champion that he’s got a big mouth and those with a big mouth always get what’s coming to them and how he hopes he’s the one who shuts it.

Punk wasn’t smiling anymore and Cena told him that he can run his mouth all he wants, it won’t stop him going to Night of Champions and beating his ass to become the new World Heavyweight Champion all by himself without any help, defiantly stating that he’s never asked for any help or wanted any but Punk will need it because he’s going to do everything to make him tap the hell out. The crowd were cheering like mad as they stared right into each other’s eyes, no fear from Cena as he then said he didn’t think he could wait until Night of Champions and knocked Punk down to the mat to another huge pop.

Punk pulled his way back up and found himself back on the canvas after a flurry of right hands and a flying shoulder tackle. Cena was pumped up to the max and connected with a sit-out spinning side suplex, and with Punk struggling to make it back up, he was getting ready for the F-U. It was deafening, and as Punk clawed his way back up, Cena was on him in a flash and lifted him into place for the F-U, but the World Champion slipped down to safety and pushed Cena forward, grabbed his title and scurried away to safety as “My Time is Now” hit to a huge cheer. Cena stared intently at Punk as he back tracked up the ramp staring back, not so confident anymore.


{Commercial Break}

An angry CM Punk was pacing through the back with a face like thunder when he bumped into his former rookie, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez. The Mexican didn’t pick up on his mood and asked Punk if he saw him beat Matt Sydal last week. Punk gave him short shrift and unmeaningfully congratulated him before walking past him, but he then stopped and turned back to tell Del Rio-Ramirez he had an idea.

He told his attentive former rookie that even though he wasn’t his mentor anymore, he could still offer him some advice. The Mexican said he was listening and Punk told him that if he wanted to get to Night of Champions and face him for the world title, he should make a statement to prove he has what it takes, this time someone bigger than Sydal, giving John Cena as an example.

Punk’s advice certainly hit home with Del Rio-Ramirez and he said it was a good idea before thanking his former mentor and telling him it would be an honour to face him for the title should he get there. Punk was clearly pleased with himself and told Del Rio-Ramirez he felt the same way and wished him luck before walking up off the hallway far calmer than he was a couple of minutes earlier with the Mexican saying to himself that he’ll definitely make a statement and Cena won’t know what him.


*The Opening Match*
World Heavyweight Championship Number One Contender Tournament
Ron Killings vs. Jack Swagger

Killings & Swagger opened up the action in exciting fashion, getting the crowd going in a competitive match with both men fired up with a place in the next round at stake for the winner. It was Swagger who found himself seemingly on the verge of victory after dodging The Truth’s scissor kick and planting him with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex before hitting a corner slingshot splash. Killings got his shoulder up to deny The All-American American, but he wasn’t done trying to earn his spot in the last eight of the tournament. After arguing briefly with the referee, he grabbed his opponent’s leg and tried to turn him over for the dreaded Ankle Lock

Killings resisted and eventually turned himself over and countered, rolling across the mat and sending Swagger into the corner pads. The Truth rolled him up in a flash, but Swagger kicked out, and as both men raced up to their feet, Killings ducked a wild right and connected with a stomp to the gut, following it up with a sit-out suplex slam to pick up the win in front of the delighted Omaha crowd. Killings celebrated and looked like he meant business moving forward in the tournament with Swagger sitting up looking very frustrated indeed.

Winner: Ron Killings by pinfall.


{Commercial Break}

*Match 2*
World Heavyweight Championship Number One Contender Tournament
Bryan Danielson vs. Chavo Guerrero

Danielson & Chavo were both out to impress and The American Dragon sure made an impression on the Omaha crowd, connecting with a series of vicious stiff kicks to the Mexican. He didn’t have it all his own way though, and Chavo seized the initiative after dodging a diving double foot stomp. Guerrero was incredibly focused and looked very much like he could pick up the win, but Danielson wasn’t done. He blocked an attempt at a brain-buster before going for a suplex of his own, only to see Chavo slip down his back and catch him with a release german suplex.

As both men made their way back up, Chavo stomped him in the gut and this time hit the brain-buster, however the resilient Washington native got his shoulder up to the amazement & relief of the crowd. Chavo wasn’t happy about it though and eventually got over the frustration to head up to the top rope, looking for the Frog Splash. His time wasting came back to bite him in the ass as Danielson flew up to his feet and to the second rope where he hammered Chavo in the stomach before setting him up for a super-plex.

Chavo pushed him down to the mat though, and with Danielson writing around beneath him, he went for the Frog Splash, but Danielson lifted his knees up into Guerrero’s gut, and with Chavo rolling around in agony, Danielson pounced to apply the LeBell Lock. The crowd enjoyed seeing Chavo in agony, and eventually he was left with no choice but to tap out to give Danielson the win, much to the satisfaction of the man himself and the approval of the Nebraska faithful.

Winner: Bryan Danielson by submission.


The WWE Tag Team Champions, Paul Burchill & TJ Wilson were interviewed backstage by Josh Matthews with the injured Harry Smith joining them as well as Wilson’s girlfriend & Smith’s cousin, Natalya Neidhart. Josh started by asking them how they felt about the decision made by Tazz to have Wilson defend Smith’s half of the titles until he’s able to compete again. Burchill admitted that the situation wasn’t ideal but given everything that’s happened with The Empire and how they could’ve been stripped of the titles altogether, they were fortunate to still have the titles and that there’s still two of them able to take the fight to The Empire.

He then talked about the initial issues he had with Wilson & Harry’s relationship but he knows how much Harry & TJ trust each other, calling them practically family and that if anyone was going to be his partner in Smith’s place, he couldn’t have anyone better than TJ. Wilson agreed with Burchill and also admitted it wasn’t an ideal situation for them but it was what it was and he was going to defend the title like it was his own until Harry’s ready to go again. Josh then asked them about Night of Champions and their title defence against The Empire, and Burchill jokingly said that TJ might have to pull double duty after getting through to the next round of the tournament to determine CM Punk’s opponent.

He then turned serious and said that The Empire need to be put in their place for everything they’ve said and what they did to Harry, stating it didn’t matter which of them it was who got to do it, just that they were going to deal with them, plain & simple. Smith then piped up and backed his boys up, saying that as much as he wanted to get his hands on Wade Barrett & Drew McIntyre, he knows Burchill & TJ have what it takes to get the job done, knows they will and he’ll be there to enjoy seeing them do just that.


{Commercial Break}

A recap from two weeks ago when Paul London’s match with Johnny Devine was shown where London came out on top only for Petey Williams to jump him afterwards, bringing out Brian Kendrick to save the day for his former partner, taking London completely by surprise.

*Match 3*
Paul London & Brian Kendrick
vs. Petey Williams & Johnny Devine

London & Kendrick showed signs of being back to the unit they used to be, however there was still some awkwardness at times as they battled it out with the Canadian duo. Williams & Devine were up for the fight too and they had the upper hand in the closing stages until London avoided a springboard tornado DDT from Devine, throwing him down to the mat after hitting the ropes. He quickly made the tag to Kendrick and they sized him up for a double super kick as he clawed his way back up.

Williams stormed the ring to scupper their plans, but as he ran at London he was sent flying over the top rope down to the floor and then was on the receiving end of a suicide dive. Kendrick’s attention was taken away from Devine who ran at him from behind to take him down with a swinging neck-breaker. After a two count, Devine went up top but missed with a missile dropkick, getting a cheer from the crowd as both men picked themselves back up with Kendrick reversing a short arm clothesline to kick the Canadian in the gut.

Devine quickly found himself in deep trouble as Kendrick grabbed his head and ran to the corner, planting him with the Sliced Bread to secure the victory for him & London. The fans were cheering as London rejoined Kendrick in the ring, slightly hesitant as they got their arms raised by the referee. Kendrick though gave him a high five to ease his concerns before heading to the corner to celebrate the victory in front of the cheering Omaha fans.

Winners: Paul London & Brian Kendrick by pinfall.


Michelle McCool was interviewed in the back by Josh Matthews and McCool was one unhappy chick. She talked about her diva’s title match last week and how she felt she was robbed having beaten Beth Phoenix, albeit by count out. She said it was a stupid rule that she didn’t win the title despite winning the match and then accused Beth of deliberately getting herself counted out because she knew she couldn’t beat her. McCool claimed that she should be the Diva’s Champion and that was what she was going to tell to Tazz before walking off with Josh looking somewhat taken aback.

{Commercial Break}

*Match 4*
World Heavyweight Championship Number One Contender Tournament
Charlie Haas w/Bobby Lashley
vs. Shelton Benjamin

The former tag team champions went to war and both went all out for the victory, and it was Benjamin who came the closest when Haas somehow got his shoulder up after a power-bomb into the turnbuckle pads. The Gold Standard couldn’t believe it and then watched, barely containing his rage as Haas used the ropes to help him get back up. As soon as he was up, Benjamin charged across the ring and went looking for a Stinger Splash, but Haas stepped out and quickly rolled Shelton up for a two count.

Both men raced their way back up to their feet, and after ducking a wild roundhouse kick from Benjamin, Haas lifted him up off the mat for an Olympic Slam. Benjamin slipped down to safety though and took his former partner down with a side inverted headlock back-breaker. It wasn’t enough for the victory but Benjamin was in the zone, coolly standing back up and backing away from the squirming Haas as he sat up. With Lashley looking concerned on the outside for his friend & tag team partner, The Gold Standard was getting ready to hit the Paydirt.

The fans were concerned, but luckily for them & Haas, he dodged it and Benjamin hit the deck. With the fans now cheering, Haas pulled down the straps and circled Shelton as he slowly made it back up, up into the Olympic Slam and hitting it to a big pop. Haas wasted no time in going for the cover and booked himself a spot in the next round of the tournament, getting a good response from the crowd & Lashley who joined him in the ring to congratulate him.

Winner: Charlie Haas by pinfall.


John Cena was shown in the back talking to some workers, and as he then said his goodbyes and headed up off the hall, he was jumped by Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez. The Mexican clubbed him across the back and stomped all over his back before kicking him square in the face when Matt Sydal, the United States Champion stormed into the shot and told Del Rio-Ramirez to lay off Cena.

Sydal’s girlfriend, Mickie James (holding Sydal’s title) caught him up and the King of the Ring shoved the Mexican, then told him to get lost, but Del Rio-Ramirez wasn’t intimidated by him and goaded him into making him disappear. He mocked Sydal and told him he couldn’t before reminding him he’s beaten him twice lately, mentioning last week’s victory before calling him a loser, a bad loser after his reaction last week. The Mexican then warned him to get out of his way unless he wanted to end up on the floor like the squirming Cena.

Sydal looked like he was about to snap but chose to step aside, amusing Del Rio-Ramirez as he walked away from the scene of the crime. Cena was sitting up and the United States Champion went over to him and helped him up from his knees, asking him if he was okay. Cena shook off the cobwebs and said he was okay unlike the guy who he thought was behind it when he gets his hands on him, saying that person just made things a whole lot worse for himself.


{Commercial Break}

We were shown a recap from the match between Mickie James & O.D.B. from two weeks ago where they were both counted out, getting into a brawl and ignoring the ref’s count. Then a recap from last week’s diva’s title match between Beth Phoenix & Michelle McCool was shown where McCool made it back into the ring to defeat The Glamazon by count out, winning the match and not the title, making her a very unhappy woman.

*Match 5*
Beth Phoenix & Mickie James w/Matt Sydal
vs. Michelle McCool & O.D.B.

Before the match started, Tazz walked out to the stage and announced that Beth Phoenix will defend her diva’s title against Michelle McCool at Night of Champions, getting a good response from McCool. Beth too was on a mission, wanting a piece of her rival from the get go, but McCool let O.D.B. start things off. Mickie did want a piece of O.D.B. though and asked Beth to start the match, and she got her wish. They tore strips off each other and as the match went on, it was Beth & McCool who were the legal women.

O.D.B. found herself on the outside after being clotheslined over the top by The Glamazon. As she made her way back up by the announce table, she got a dirty look from Layla who was joining Michael Cole & Matt Striker for commentary, having been involved in the problems between her best friend, Mickie & O.D.B. The no nonsense diva took exception to Layla staring at her and started talking smack at her, but Layla wasn’t intimidated at all and stood up, getting right in her face.

That brought Mickie off the apron as she saw O.D.B. grab Layla and shake the life out of her before tossing her down to the floor. As Mickie & O.D.B. then beat the tar out of each other, resulting in Mickie getting a sharp introduction to the ringpost, the distracted & stunned Diva’s Champion found herself rolled up by McCool, who used the ropes as leverage to help pick up a pinfall victory over the diva she’ll face for the gold at Night of Champions in three weeks. McCool certainly enjoyed the victory and sure let the fans know it as O.D.B. stared down at Mickie & Layla on the outside.

Winners: Michelle McCool & O.D.B. by pinfall.


{Commercial Break}



>Coming Soon!<


We got a recap from two weeks ago when J-Red won the Cruiserweight Championship from Johnny Jeter after connecting with the Red Alert before then being attacked at the bell by his pissed former mentor, Chavo Guerrero, who laid him out with the Brainbuster.

*Match 6*
Cruiserweight Championship
J-Red (c) vs. Johnny Jeter

The Cruiserweight Champion’s former rookie, Chavo Guerrero was watching a monitor in the locker room, showing plenty of anger for his former rookie who put his newly won title on the line against Jeter in his championship rematch. Red was on fire and had the crowd in the palm of his hand. He looked certain for victory until Jeter blocked an attempt for the Red Eye on the top rope and countered with a super-plex. To Jeter’s frustration, Red just about managed to get his shoulder up before the ref could count to three.

The challenger was hell bent on getting his title back, and with Red barely moving on the mat, he went up to the top rope to jeers from the crowd, fearing for the champion. They watched as the focused Jeter leapt off looking for a guillotine leg drop but missed to a big roar. As both men then made their way back up to their feet, Red had an irish whip reversed, but as he ran back he went for tilt-a-whirl head-scissors, trying to turn it into a DDT, but Jeter throw him down into the canvas.

Jeter smelt victory and took a couple of steps back, sizing the champion up for the Genesis Kick. The fans were worried as the intense challenger was all set to explode, and as Red made it back up and turned round, Jeter jumped up to his feet and went for the Genesis Kick. Red ducked it though to a big pop and made his way over to the apron as Jeter struggled up to his knees.

The champion grabbed hold of the top rope and set his sights on Jeter, and his opponent made it back up, Red hit the springboard and then the Red Alert, a diving swinging reverse STO to a massive pop to retain his title and delight the fans, coming through in a tight contest, not going down well with Chavo in the back. The Mexican was livid and threw a bottle of water across the room as Red posed with his title on the ropes with the fans cheering him and Jeter sitting up furiously.

Winner: By pinfall, and still the Cruiserweight Champion, J-Red.


‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels was shown getting ready in his locker room, applying his elbow pads when a showered & changed Bryan Danielson knocked & walked in. The two men greeted each other like the long time associates that they are, and Michaels congratulated the man he trained all those years ago on getting through to the next round of the tournament to determine a new number one contender for the world title at Night of Champions. Shawn then asked him to wish him luck with his match up next, and Danielson said that’s why he was there and how he might need luck with The Empire out there.

He told Shawn that he wanted to go out there with him and make sure they didn’t screw him over. H.B.K. said he appreciated it but he was fine by himself, but Danielson wasn’t having any of it, telling Shawn that he owed him for getting him into the company and he wouldn’t be in with a shot himself of fighting for the world title had it not been for him, calling it the least he could do. Michaels smirked and accepted it, patting his former trainee on the back before telling him it was time to go and they headed out of the room with Michaels’ match against Drew McIntyre up next.


{Commercial Break}

The World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk was looking very relaxed in the back, seemingly texting in the production area when ‘The Rated-R Superstar’ Edge walked up to him, looking very happy to ask him if he heard about what happened to John Cena earlier, telling Punk he’d been jumped. Punk smirked and Edge asked him if he had anything to do with it, and Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley walked into the shot, right up to them both and said that it was a good question and that she’d like to know the answer too.

Punk put his phone away and told them both that all he did was give his former rookie some advice to go make a statement and if he took that as an invitation to attack Cena, it’s not on him, it was just some advice from a former mentor to his former rookie, that’s all. Steph didn’t buy it and told him that she was pretty sure she knew what he said, then bringing up what he said last week at the end of the show when he said she could kiss his ass, saying she heard that loud & clear.

Punk was still very laid back and told her he had some time if she wanted to do it there & then, but Steph said she’d pass but thanked him for the kind offer before telling him she did have one idea she wanted to talk to him about. She said that since everyone on Smackdown is competing to face him at Night of Champions, it’s only fair that he gets a tune up match so that he’s ready for whoever he has to defend his title against, getting Punk’s attention for sure.

Edge too was hanging on Steph’s every word as she then told Punk that next week he’d be going up against someone else who needed a tune up match for Night of Champions, calling it a very special match, a no disqualification match against Batista. She wished him luck with a smile on her face before saying her goodbyes, and Punk wasn’t as relaxed anymore. Edge looked at Punk and said that sucked, and the camera zoomed in on Punk getting more pissed by the second.


*The Main Event*
World Heavyweight Championship Number One Contender Tournament
Shawn Michaels w/Bryan Danielson
vs. Drew McIntyre w/Wade Barrett, William Regal & Katie Lee

Before the match started & Michaels made his entrance, Wade Barrett grabbed a microphone and said that Night of Champions was going to be a very special night for The Empire as not only will he & McIntyre be the new WWE Tag Team Champions, one of McIntyre & Regal will also be the new World Heavyweight Champion. He also said they would still all be in with a shot if it wasn’t for Harry Smith costing him his chance last week, but then said it was fine as they’ll soon have all the gold and that Smackdown will truly be their empire.

Then after Michaels made his entrance with Danielson by his side, Tazz greeted the crowd with his presence again to announce that all 12 men left in the tournament will meet next week in four triple threat matches, getting a big pop from the Omaha crowd. If Barrett thought McIntyre was going to coast into the next round, he was wrong as The Heartbreak Kid was fired up and desperate to fight his way into next week’s triple threat matches. It looked like he was all but there until he went up top for a diving elbow drop, only to get himself distracted by Barrett despite Danielson walking round to get Barrett’s attention.

McIntyre though was up in time and he dived into the ropes to send Michaels falling off the ropes and onto the mat. The Scot did a good number on H.B.K., but he couldn’t seal the deal as Michaels reached to the side and held onto the top rope when McIntyre set him up for the Future Shock DDT. McIntyre hit the mat to the disappointment of his fellow Brits on the outside, and it got worse for them as they watched the San Antonio fan favourite regain control of the match. He reversed an irish whip and came back off the ropes after running through the first time to connect with a flying forearm smash.

The fans were getting behind Michaels, and he wasn’t done there, sending Drew back down after a scoop slam, then choosing to head back up to the dizzy heights of the top rope. Danielson made sure there was no distraction this time and H.B.K. sent the fans into a frenzy, nailing McIntyre with the diving elbow drop. It was deafening inside the arena as Michaels started to tune up the band, but Barrett flew up onto the apron, infuriating Danielson again. He raced round and dragged him down, getting into it with him, and he reversed Barrett’s attempt to send him into the security wall by tossing the Englishman into the wall instead.

Regal though took the chance to get in the ring with the ref & Michaels distracted by the actions on the outside. Michaels though turned back at the right time and saw Regal running at him to send him flying over the top and down to the floor by Danielson who just about moved to the side at the right time. McIntyre was back on his feet though and ran at H.B.K. who ducked his head and ran under the Scot’s arm, nailing him as he came back with the Sweet Chin Music to pick up the win and seal the last spot in the last 12 of the tournament and the all important triple threat matches next week, celebrating with Danielson and the fans as the show came to a close.

Winner: Shawn Michaels by pinfall.

>Headlines!<



>The Final 12 Is Complete!<

There were just four more places left before last night’s Smackdown in the last 12 of the tournament to determine just who will challenge CM Punk for the World Heavyweight Championship at Night of Champions, but now we know which 12 men will battle it out next week in four triple threat matches to leave only four superstars in with a chance of facing Punk at the four hour year-end spectacular.

The first man to advance was Ron Killings after he overcame ‘The All-American American’ Jack Swagger in what was a very competitive match with Swagger unlucky to miss out. Shawn Michaels’ protégé, Bryan Danielson was the next man through after his hard fought victory over Chavo Guerrero. They were then joined by Charlie Haas who came out on top of his former tag team partner, Shelton Benjamin, and rounding off the final 12 is arguably the favourite, the man who lost the title to Punk at Judgment Day, ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels.

Michaels battled his way to a victory over The Empire’s Drew McIntyre, and we were left in no doubt how much The Showstopper would like one more shot at the man who cashed in the Money in the Bank contract at his expense earlier this year. The four matches we’ll see next Friday night will be announced next week, and you don’t need us to tell you it’s going to be a huge night next week with Killings, Danielson, Haas & Michaels joining Edge, Elijah Burke, J-Red, John Cena, William Regal, Dolph Ziggler, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez & TJ Wilson in their quest to be the new World Heavyweight Champion.

Only four superstars will be left standing by the end of Smackdown next Friday night. Make sure you tune in to find out which superstars they will be.





>Punk & Batista Live Next Week!<

Despite overcoming Team Cena at Survivor Series, CM Punk’s issues with his opposing team captain that night haven’t gone away, and we got a stark reminder of that last night.

John Cena opposed the World Champion’s remarks about him and vowed to earn the shot at his title come Night of Champions while also declaring his intention to be the one to shut Punk’s big mouth, and it turned out Cena wasn’t willing to wait to see if he got the title shot or not before trying to do just that. Fortunately for The Straight-Edge Superstar, he managed to escape before he found himself on the wrong end of an F-U. However as you can imagine, Punk wasn’t best pleased, and he gave his former rookie, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez some sneaky advice, to make a statement at the expense of a big name, giving Cena as a prime example.

The Mexican took his former mentor’s advice and attacked Cena backstage later in the night, but it didn’t take much to figure out who had a role in the assault. Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley who’s had her own fair share of run-ins with the World Champion lately wasn’t to be convinced otherwise and fresh after being told to kiss his ass a week earlier, she told Punk he’d be getting a tune up match for Night of Champions next week against someone else who needs one, Batista in a no disqualification match for his 3 Stages of Hell match against Triple H.

Maybe Punk will learn that he’s playing with fire with Stephanie and it’s best to keep his mouth firmly shut. Either way, next week he’ll have far more to be concerned with when he takes on the former WWE Champion. That’s not to be missed.





>McCool Gets A Second Shot at The Glamazon!<

Michelle McCool finally went head-to-head with Beth Phoenix for the Diva’s Championship just over a week ago, and after coming up short of actually winning the title, we found out last night just how angry she was that she wasn’t the new Diva’s Champion having come out on top by count-out.

She told Josh Matthews that she thought it was a stupid rule that a title can’t be won by count-out, and even went as far as to accuse The Glamazon of deliberately getting herself counted out to save her title. She also let Josh know that she’d be telling Tazz just that, and before she & Beth met again, this time in tag team action, Smackdown’s General Manager announced that McCool will get another opportunity at Beth’s title in three weeks at Night of Champions. It was a productive night for the challenger too as she managed to secure a pinfall victory over her rival, albeit a controversial one, using the ropes as leverage when Beth was distracted by action on the outside between Mickie James & O.D.B.

She may well have got what she wants now, but will McCool get her hands on what she really wants when she steps inside the squared circle with The Glamazon when the title’s on the line?

Monday Night Raw
Monday 1st December 2008
Jobing.com Arena
Glendale, Arizona




A recap from last week was shown where Batista & Triple H sparred verbally, culminating in them going at it with Batista going for a sledgehammer, only to see The Game escape and back track up the ramp to safety before then leaving the arena with Batista following him, warning him that he won’t be able to run away at Night of Champions.


J.R. & The King went over what the fans could expect to see throughout the show, letting everyone know that in preparation for Night of Champions, Triple H would meet Finlay in a Last Man Standing match. They also said there would be a divas battle royal to determine who will challenge Melina for the Women’s Championship at Night of Champions in addition to The Undertaker meeting Ted DiBiase in a rematch from Survivor Series.


*The Opening Match*
Team Omega (Matt Hardy, Gregory Helms & Shannon Moore)
vs. The Miz, Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig

The heel trio were certainly fired up, very focused from start to finish while Team Omega remained calm & composed with the fans supporting them throughout. The Miz though more than anyone meant business, not looking at all happy from the moment the bell rang, and after a back & forth battle it was Mr. Hollywood that picked up the win for his team when he was left in the ring with Shannon Moore while everyone else was busy on the outside.

Moore came back off the ropes and into a kitchen sink, and as he clawed his way back up, the intense Miz stalked him from behind before catching him with the Skull Crushing Finale to secure the win before Hardy could make it back in to make the save. Miz wasted no time in leaving the ring, still not looking at all pleased to have won when the delighted Rhodes & Hennig joined him to get their arms raised by the ref on the outside.

Winners: The Miz, Cody Rhodes & Joe Hennig by pinfall.


{Commercial Break}

Kofi Kingston hit the ring to a huge pop in his trunks & a trademark T-shirt of his, but the Jamaican wasn’t in his usual high energy mood as he picked up a microphone. He spoke about how he was jumped by Sheamus last week in the back, then called him a coward and said he was bitter just because he was the first person to beat him. He promised Sheamus he was going to get even with him but he had something else he had to do first, referring to what happened at the end of his match when a stranger appeared on the stage.

Spoiler for Mystery Man:



Kofi went on to say that he saw whoever he was and that if he was there again, he wanted him to show his face and tell him what he’s up to. Kingston was clearly agitated and urged him to join him in the ring so they could talk it out, but he was joined by someone else, the Intercontinental Champion, Sheamus. The Celtic Warrior had a microphone and entered the ring without a care in the world with Kofi not at all impressed or happy to see him there. Sheamus told him to forget about whatever it was he saw and to think about how he felt when he beat the crap out of him last week, warning Kofi that if he called him a coward again, that beating would be nothing compared to what he’d do next time.

Kofi wasn’t scared though and told Sheamus he was pathetic because everyone could see he was a gutless coward for attacking him from behind, all because he beat him a few weeks ago. He called him pathetic again before telling Sheamus that he’s not as great as he thinks he is, angering Sheamus who cut in and told Kofi it was nothing but a fluke. He said that was his only loss of his career and taunted Kofi by telling him he couldn’t beat him again, but Kofi was up for the challenge and told Sheamus that there was only one way to find out, challenging him to a match there & then.

The crowd liked the idea of that but Kofi wasn’t done and dared Sheamus to put his money where his mouth is by putting the Intercontinental Championship on the line. Sheamus wasn’t intimidated either and accepted in a flash, but at that point the same guy who walked out to the stage last week did it again, getting Kofi’s attention as he pulled his shirt off. Kofi stared up at the stranger who stared back before turning back and walking backstage, and Kofi went after him, pacing up the ramp with the crowd booing. Sheamus called for him to come back, then taunted him by asking the crowd who they thought the coward was now and said Kofi realised he couldn’t beat him as Kofi headed backstage in pursuit of the stranger.

The Intercontinental Champion then asked Lilian Garcia to announce him the winner by default, but before she could finish, Eric Bischoff walked out to the stage and told Lilian to hold it right there. He said that Kofi clearly had something to deal with but he believed that Kofi deserved a shot at the Intercontinental title, then made Kofi versus Sheamus for Night of Champions to a big pop. He then announced that since Sheamus was ready for action, he was going to have a match after all, and as Bischoff stood to the side, “This Ain’t No Make Believe” hit and John Morrison hit the stage to a pretty decent pop with Sheamus preparing for battle and awaiting his opponent.


*Match 2*
Non-Title Match
John Morrison vs. Sheamus

Morrison tested The Celtic Warrior, quickly getting under the skin of the Irishman, no more so when the weary Morrison ducked a Brogue Kick and connected with a springboard enzuigiri. Everyone in the arena though JoMo had the match won, but Sheamus showed how tough he is by getting his shoulder up. Morrison went looking for Starship Pain right after with the Intercontinental Champion still on the deck, but he came falling down onto his opponent’s raised knees.

Both men fought their way back up with Sheamus kicking him in the gut and setting him up for the High Cross. Morrison though slid down to safety, and as Sheamus turned round to throw a wild right at him, JoMo ducked and ran through into the ropes, only to run back into a Brogue Kick, giving the relieved & angry Sheamus the victory, gloating in front of the disappointed crowd.

Winner: Sheamus by pinfall.


Ted DiBiase’s girlfriend, Maryse was on her cell phone backstage, seemingly speaking to him and asking him where he was and why he wasn’t there, desperately trying to remind him about his match with The Undertaker and how he skipped it last week. Eric Bischoff then walked into the shot and asked her if it was DiBiase she was speaking to and took the phone from her, and he went nuts. He let Ted know in no uncertain terms that he was supposed to face The Undertaker last week and he sure as hell better be there in time to face him later on.

Bischoff then pulled the phone away from his ear and looked at it, realising DiBiase hung up on him, getting him even angrier. He then asked Maryse if she knew where he was and she said he told him something about Vegas. Bischoff yelled “Vegas” before trying to compose himself for a few seconds before then telling Maryse to let her boyfriend know that he’s going to fine him for no showing the last two weeks and that he better be there next week, if not he’ll be fired.

Maryse looked worried and promised him she’d tell Ted. Raw’s Head of Authority then passed her phone back and turned to walk away as she tried to call Ted again, but he turned back and told her not to go anywhere as she was going to be in a match, next in fact. Maryse was not happy about that at all, and this time Bischoff did walk away and she tried calling Ted again, getting even angrier as she got no answer, cursing in French.


{Commercial Break}

Footage from before the break was shown where Kofi Kingston was leaving the arena, surely on the hunt for the mystery man. He came back inside and was stopped by Todd Grisham who asked him who it was he was looking for, but an angry Kofi told him it was none of his business and kept on walking, leaving Grisham somewhat surprised by his mood.

Back inside the arena, JTG & Homicide were shown battling it out backstage and being pulled apart by officials. Both men were incensed and trying to get at each other with Homicide taunting his former mentor, begging him to go at him. JTG tried but Eric Bischoff arrived on the scene and asked what was going on, just getting some more shouting from the former mentor & rookie. Bischoff said that was enough and told them to sort it out in the ring later, cooling them down somewhat as JTG was let go and told Homicide he’d deal with him later before walking away with his pissed former rookie’s eyes locked on his every step.


*Match 3*
Divas Battle Royal – Number One Contender for Night of Champions
Featuring: Gail Kim, Kelly Kelly, Queen Kong, Mia Rain, Maryse & The Bella Twins

The Women’s Champion, Melina was commentating along with J.R. & King with her women’s title resting on the announce table. It was Kong who unsurprisingly dominated the contest, quickly eliminating Kelly Kelly & Maryse, but it was Gail that eliminated both Bella Twins before sending Rain packing with head-scissors over the top rope. That left Gail & Kong to fight it out for the right to face Melina at Night of Champions, and it looked like Gail was going to score the upset when she managed to force Kong back to the ropes when the behemoth had her up above her head for a sit-down power-bomb.

Gail tried to take her over with head-scissors like she did Rain, but Kong held on, just. Gail didn’t stop trying and went up top looking for a diving cross-body. Kong though caught her and threw her up above her head before walking over to the ropes and sending her down to the floor right in front of the watching Women’s Champion as the bell rang and she was announced the winner. Kong glared down at her for several seconds before menacingly stepping through the ropes and walking over to Melina, who grabbed her belt.

Melina stood up, trying to show no fear and lifted her title up bravely, getting a pop from the crowd. Kong wasn’t impressed in the least bit and gave her a tame shove, but Melina came back at her and shoved her back, hard. Kong stood firm and boy was she livid. She glared at Melina and then tried to grab her, but Melina nailed her in the skull with the title, putting Kong down on the floor to a massive pop. “Paparazzi” played and Melina stared down at the squirming Kong, wondering if she’d done a wise thing or not while clutching onto the women’s title.

Winner: Queen Kong.


{Commercial Break}

*Match 4*
JTG vs. Homicide

JTG was looking pumped for his match with his former rookie, but as he walked down the ramp with purpose, Homicide jumped him and clubbed him down to his knees. He then stomped all over his former mentor before kicking him down the ramp and pulling him up to send him crashing into the security wall. The fans were booing the hell out of Homicide, but he wasn’t listening at all.

He was relentless and continued to put the boots to JTG before pulling him up again, this time sending him flying into the steel steps to yet more heat from the crowd. EMT’s then ran down to ringside to check on him with officials keeping Homicide away from him. The remorseless Brooklyn native just stared down at his former mentor until Eric Bischoff headed down to ringside too with some security workers to escort the remorseless Homicide away, who was booed all the way back as JTG came too looking very angry indeed.

Result: Non-Starter.


Todd Grisham was standing by backstage with ‘The Animal’ Batista. Grisham spoke about how his WWE Championship rematch with Triple H at Night of Champions will now be a 3 Stages of Hell match and asked Batista just why he asked for a match this punishing. The former WWE Champion said that for a while now he’s wanted nothing else pretty much other than to beat Triple H to within an inch of his life. He called The Game the lowest of the low and that he’s done things no normal human being would even think about, and he even said the WWE Championship could almost be a bonus but that he wants the title back that Triple H stole from him at Survivor Series.

Grisham then asked him about the three stages that have been decided, letting us all know that the first fall will be no holds barred, the second a tables match, and finally if needed, it will be the last man standing who leaves as the WWE Champion. The Animal said he knew how tough it is going to be and that the match is already tough enough without taking into consideration what Hunter is capable of, but he emphatically stated that he was ready for anything that will be thrown of him as he’ll do what it takes to beat the hell out of Triple H and regain the WWE title.

Todd then brought up Batista’s match with Smackdown superstar & World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk this Friday night in a no disqualification match and asking The Animal how he felt about going to Smackdown to face Punk. Batista was very cool indeed about it and said that if Stephanie was looking for someone to put Punk in his place and shut his mouth, he was happy to do it like he’ll do the same to Triple H at Night of Champions.


{Commercial Break}

*Match 4*
The Colon Brothers
vs. The Epitome of Excellence (Christopher Daniels & Kaval)

The World Tag Team Champions, Rey Mysterio & Mystico were watching in the back as their Night of Champions opponents, Daniels & Kaval went up against the Colon brothers. Carlito & Eddie weren’t out to just stand by and be made an example of by the number one contenders for the tag titles. They gave Daniels & Kaval a run for their money, and when Daniels failed with a BME attempt on Carlito, he fell victim to a Backstabber. Kaval though saved the day and their undefeated record by storming the ring and breaking the count at two. As the match drew to a close, it was still back & forth when Carlito went looking for the Backstabber on Kaval.

Daniels hit the ring this time, bringing in Eddie as he & Daniels both ended up on the outside after a clothesline full of momentum from Eddie. The distraction allowed Kaval some recovery time and he caught Carlito off guard with the Tidal Wave, a springboard roundhouse. Kaval followed it up with the Warrior’s Way to pick up the win for The Epitome of Excellence, surprising Eddie as he sat up on the outside. Kaval left the ring and was joined by Daniels as they got their arms raised by the referee with Rey & Mystico shown again watching on backstage.

Winners: The Epitome of Excellence by pinfall.


Justin Gabriel was warming up backstage with his match up next when The Bella Twins, Brie & Nikki walked out of their locker room, changed after their own match earlier. They caught sight of Gabriel and eyed him up, looking impressed with what they saw. They whispered amongst themselves before going up to him and embarrassingly asked him if he had a match later to which he said he did. Both Bellas wished him luck and one of them told him that they might see him later on.

Gabriel was looking a little embarrassed himself as he just said “okay” and headed off towards the production area as the Bellas talked about how hot they thought he was. Zack Ryder then walked up behind them looking confused, then asked them if he heard them right, if they said Gabriel was hot and asked if they thought he was hotter than him. They just laughed & walked away leaving Ryder an unhappy bunny with the camera zooming in on his angry expression.


{Commercial Break}

*Match 5*
Justin Gabriel vs. Zack Ryder

Before the match, Ryder got a microphone and clearly still wasn’t happy with what down before the break. With Gabriel in the ring too, The Long Island Loudmouth told him and the fans that contrary to some bimbos’ in the back opinion, Gabriel isn’t the hottest thing on Raw, claiming that the hottest thing on Raw is Zack Ryder. The fans didn’t agree and booed Ryder, but he angrily told them that they didn’t need to believe them as he was about to prove it for the world to see. The match itself was a really lively encounter with both men pumped up for it.

However it was Ryder who managed to gain the upper hand going into the closing stages, but after sizing the South African up for the Rough Ryder, Gabriel ducked it and caught him with an enzuigiri to a big pop from the fans. The job wasn’t done and he hit the top rope, sealing the deal with the 450 splash to another massive roar from the Glendale crowd. The action wasn’t done there though, and after Gabriel came down off the ropes celebrating, Ryder was back on his feet and took him down with the Rough Ryder to a ton of heat. The Long Island native just stared down angrily at him for several seconds with the boos ringing out before leaving the ring to the continuing heat without an ounce of regret.

Winner: Justin Gabriel by pinfall.


{Commercial Break}



>3 Weeks!<

*The Main Event*
Last Man Standing Match
Finlay vs. Triple H

The Game was in a fight from the get go and Finlay gave the WWE Champion as good as he got. The Irishman’s fighting spirit quickly got under the skin of The King of Kings, and in the later stages it just made him even more determined to hurt Finlay. As the action spilled outside, Triple H went about stripping the announce table and then tossed Finlay on there, setting him up for the Pedigree. Finlay was in a dangerous place but he managed to counter with a back-body drop to send him through the table, and it took Finlay’s feet from under him too.

The WWE Champion made it back up to his feet before the count of ten, but he was in serious danger when Finlay grabbed his shillelagh, getting the crowd right behind him. What he didn’t see as he was getting his match winner, The Game grabbed hold of a steel chair and nailed the Irishman by surprise with the chair to put him down. The King of Kings wasn’t best pleased to see Finlay make it back up to his feet, and he went after his own trusty ally, his sledgehammer. The fans tried to warn the groggy Finlay as he clawed his way back up, eyes all over the place, but it was no use and Triple H took his head off the sledgehammer to pick up the win.

The WWE Champion wasn’t satisfied and hit him again as he eventually made it back up. With the fans booing like crazy, he went after a microphone. He issued a warning to Batista, stating that what just happened to Finlay was his future, but he also claimed it would be the end for Batista as he vowed to end his career. The crowd were then left stunned as “Sprach Zarathustra” hit to a deafening roar in the Jobing.com Arena. Triple H couldn’t believe it as he saw the retired ‘Nature Boy’ Ric Flair walking down the aisle with a microphone in hand, both staring at each other.

Flair got in the ring, joining Triple H to tell him to forget all about ending Batista’s career like he ended his at SummerSlam. Triple H didn’t like that one but, but Flair was only just getting started and said that he was enjoying his retirement, then told The Game that Batista won’t be as he’s not ready to retire yet, he’s not done and he’s praying that Dave kicks his ass at Night of Champions and takes back the WWE Championship. The fans were going nuts as Flair defiantly stared at The Game, and the WWE Champion came firing back, telling the world that no amount of praying is going to help either of them, calling it inevitable that Batista’s career will come to an end just like Ric’s did.

Flair then called The Game an opportunist, claiming he picked the right to time end his career but how he’s not had the guts to do the same right now with Dave as he knows he’s definitely not going to win at Night of Champions. The Game was seething and Flair continued to say that there’s no doubt that it’s going to be three stages of hell but that only one man can walk out victorious as WWE Champion and how he believed that man will be Batista, letting out a big “WOO” to get the crowd going too. It was met with a ferocious stomp to the gut from The King of Kings, who set The Nature Boy up for the Pedigree.

The fans were booing like mad until “In the End” blasted out to a huge pop and Batista stormed down the ramp and into the ring. Triple H shoved Flair to the side as Batista ran at him, ducking a clothesline and coming back off the ropes to take the champion down with a spear. The roof was nearly blown off by the Arizona fans, but Batista wasn’t done with his rival, pulling him back up for a Batista Bomb, sending the WWE Champion crashing into the mat, left lying their helplessly with the fans cheering like crazy again and Flair raising Batista’s hand and then hugging him to end the show on a big high.

Winner: Triple H.

>Headlines!<



>Can Kofi beat Sheamus Again?!<

Three weeks ago on Raw, ‘The Celtic Warrior’ Sheamus tasted defeat for the first time in his WWE career when Kofi Kingston shocked him in a non-title match, just 24 hours after the Intercontinental Champion led Team Raw to victory over Team Smackdown at Survivor Series

The Irishman’s confidence quickly got the better of him when he issued an open challenge, answered by the rejuvenated Jamaican Sensation, and Kofi surprised almost everyone to beat Sheamus, the first time his shoulders have ever been pinned to the mat in the WWE. It’s clear that the Intercontinental Champion has not got past that defeat yet, jumping Kofi last week, and last night he wanted a piece of him too, and it looked like they were all set to collide for the title until Kofi got a glimpse of the stranger who’s turned up the last two weeks. Eric Bischoff wasn’t about to let that potential title clash evaporate and announced that Kofi will challenge Sheamus at Night of Champions. The Celtic Warrior went onto face John Morrison in a tune-up match and came out on top despite a great effort from Morrison.

Sheamus will need to reproduce his performance from last night when he meets Kofi, or is the challenger in his head? We’ll find out in a few weeks when they lock horns with the title at stake.





>Melina Has a Real Battle on Her Hands!<

Ever since she made her presence felt on her first shocking appearance on Raw, Queen Kong has looked nothing but unstoppable, and last night she marched her way into a shot at Melina and her women’s title at Night of Champions.

Kong was just one of the divas that competed in a battle royal to determine who would face Melina at the end of year spectacular, and after a brave effort from Gail Kim to prevent the inevitable, the behemoth prevailed to become the number one contender. With Melina watching on at the announce table, Kong stepped out of the ring, attempting to intimidate the Women’s Champions. However Melina defiantly stood her ground and raised her title in her challenger’s face, getting a firm shove from the seemingly unstoppable monster. Melina fired back though and shocked everyone in attendance by hitting her with the women’s title, putting the behemoth down.

Will it be an act she’ll come to regret or has she shown has she what it takes to overcome the odds and defeat the unbeaten Kong?

Default Re: WWE: A Strong Response

Just wanted to drop in and leave a few comments on what's going on currently on Raw. Hopefully I'll be able to do the same for Smackdown when that comes up hopefully soon.

First off I like your recap format, it's very good and easy to read and understand. I like it almost as much as I like your WWE Championship feud. Seriously, I lost a little interest in this thread at some point mostly because I wasn't getting this match. It should've been the feud from SummerSlam on because this rivalary was damn hot then but it's still great here. Three Stages of Hell Should be brutal and I can not wait for that match.

I like what you're doing with DiBiase and Undertaker having Ted just not show up to avoid facing the Deadman. I'll be interested to see what happens when they finally come face to face next week.

The IC Title gets me a little. I like the way Sheamus is being build up as champion and the way this feud started it could've gone places that made the IC Title look huge and could really benifit both Kofi and Sheamus. But Kofi having more focus on the mystery man is hurting it for me. His obession with Lethal makes the IC Title look a little down (although Sheamus plays it off well calling Kofi a coward) I wish this feud could've going where it could've gone before the Lethal debut came but whatever I'm still interested in it.

Also, The tag title match. All of I have to say about that is thank you so much.

Anyway, keep up the good work I'll still be reading

Friday Night Smackdown ‘Live!’
Friday 5th December 2008
BOK Center
Tulsa, Oklahoma




We were shown footage from last week’s show, starting with the World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk chatting backstage with his former rookie, Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez, telling him to go make a statement, offering up John Cena as an example. Del Rio-Ramirez’s attack on Cena later on in the back was then shown where Matt Sydal, the United States Champion broke it up, not appreciated at all by the angry Mexican. Punk & Edge were then shown talking in the back too with Edge asking Punk if he had a hand in Cena’s attack, and at that point, Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley walked into the scene, letting Punk know she wanted to hear the answer too. She went on to tell Punk that she knew he was behind it and that he was going to get a tune-up match for Night of Champions against Batista this week and it would be a no disqualification match.


The General Manager of Smackdown, Tazz was standing in the middle of the ring at the top of the show, and his music cut, then he addressed the excited crowd. Tazz went over the last few weeks, stating that 24 superstars have battled it out for a shot at the world title at Night of Champions and that 12 of them were all a step closer, going onto say that those 12 men would meet later on in four triple threat matches. The crowd liked the sound of that and he moved onto say that the four men who win those triple threat matches will compete in a fatal four-way elimination match next week to determine who will challenge CM Punk in just over two weeks. He tried to get the crowd going even more by telling them they were in for a hell of a show and how it was going to be an action packed night, also reminding them that Punk would be in action against Raw’s Batista in a no disqualification match.

“This Fire Burns” then hit and the World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk coolly walked out to the stage in his ring gear and a T-shirt with the world title draped over his shoulder. The fans booed The Straight-Edge Superstar as he made his way down to the ring, collecting a microphone off the apron in the process. Tazz wasn’t sure what to make of Punk’s arrival, and the World Champion simply congratulated his boss on giving so many Smackdown superstars the opportunity to compete for the world title, letting him know it was good to see that he wasn’t just handing out those kind of opportunities to his buddies or management’s hand-picked superstars. Tazz was quick to cut in and told Punk he knew he wasn’t there to pat him on the back, then speculated he was there to work his way out of his match with Batista and telling him to cut to the chase.

The World Champion jokingly thanked him for the character assumption and told him he couldn’t be further from the truth, stating he was looking forward to the challenge and tried to back it up by reminding everyone how he thrives on competition, calling it the only drug he’s ever needed his entire life. He then took a shot at Tazz, telling him that if he did want out of the match he’d go to Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley and not him since she’s clearly in possession of the GM’s balls. Punk wasn’t done and asked Tazz why he was letting Steph do his job, letting him know he thought he was a good choice of general manager when he got the job based on his assumption he had a strong mind and wasn’t shy of speaking his mind and standing up for what he thinks is right.

Punk then told Tazz he’s turned out to be nothing but another corporate puppet who’s given up everything he’s ever believed in before saying that the man who brought him (Punk) to the WWE, Paul Heyman, would be ashamed of how he’s turned out. The fans were booing and Tazz took exception to that, telling Punk in no uncertain terms he didn’t care what he thinks of him and that it’s irrelevant what Heyman thinks despite the respect he has for him. He then let Punk know that as far as Stephanie goes, it’s not his business since it was Punk who put his hands on her and he should’ve known better than to mess around with a McMahon, making it clear that there were bound to be consequences.

Tazz then tried to move on and told Punk that he shouldn’t concern himself with Steph for the night at least as he has a big match with Batista, as well as letting him know Stephanie wasn’t there. Punk’s response was that it was a pity she wouldn’t be there to see him beat Batista but teased Tazz that he must’ve been happy to have his balls back for the evening. Tazz let some frustration out and accused Punk of trying to deflect the attention away from himself for being a coward, bringing up how Edge helped him beat Team Cena at Survivor Series as well as the attack on Cena last week by Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez, ending his mini rant by telling Punk that he was the one with no balls. The World Champion remained somewhat calm but spoke with purpose as he told Tazz that he was wrong on so many levels and how he takes on any challenge thrown at him with everything he has.

He said that he’s talented & smart enough to overcome any obstacle like he did at Survivor Series, stating that he didn’t ask Edge to do what he did but he wasn’t going to apologise for that, just like he won’t when he beats Batista later on and goes onto retain the world title at Night of Champions, and when he does, he’ll take great pleasure in sticking it to him, Stephanie and the fans who don’t appreciate him as the athlete & champion that he is. He then defiantly stated that he won’t let him, Cena or Stephanie take his title from him like how Stephanie took his (Tazz’s) balls. Tazz was seething, but Punk wasn’t done mocking him, sarcastically calling him boss in telling him to take care before heading back up the ramp to a ton of heat with his music playing again. The Smackdown GM stared furiously at the ice cool World Champion heading back up the ramp and looking back at him, posing with his title as the fans continued to boo him.

*The Opening Match*
World Heavyweight Championship Number One Contender Tournament
Second Round Match
J-Red vs. Elijah Burke w/Layla vs. Edge

In what was a lively start to the show, it looked like the Cruiserweight Champion, J-Red was going to cause an upset when he caught Edge with an enzuigiri. Before he could go for the Red Alert, Burke came back into the mix and tried to bring him back into the ring with a suplex. Red though landed on his feet behind Burke and took a couple of steps back before taking his head off with a super kick to send Burke over the top and down to the floor. With Edge starting to squirm, Red went back to the apron with the crowd cheering him on. He was sizing up The Rated-R Superstar for the Red Alert with Edge clawing his way back up looking like he was in cloud cuckoo land.

The fans could sense the victory, but as Red hit the springboard off the top rope, Edge countered with a kick to the gut and drilled him instantly with the Edgecution. The Canadian didn’t go for the cover and headed to the corner, stalking his opponent with serious intent, and after Red dragged his way back up to his feet, Edge charged across with the fans booing to connect with the deadly spear to book himself the first spot in next week’s tournament final to determine the number one contender for the World Heavyweight Championship, revelling in the heat from the fans, smirking into the stands with “Metalingus” blasting out into the arena.

Winner: Edge by pinfall.


{Commercial Break}

‘The Rated-R Superstar’ Edge
was walking backstage with a big smile on his face, walking right into the path of the World Heavyweight Champion, CM Punk. Edge stopped & quickly congratulated Punk on telling Tazz how it is earlier on, but he then switched gears and let the World Champion know that as much as they agree on things as far as Tazz & Cena are concerned and how he’s dealing with it, he wants the shot at his world title come Night of Champions more than anything else. He told Punk not to focus on it being Cena who he faces at Night of Champions because he’s going to be the one who wins the tournament next week.

Punk was still very laid back and told Edge that he knows he can win it, but also said anyone else can, including Cena. He then said that like he told Tazz earlier, regardless of who does face him, no one’s taking the world title from him, not even Edge. The Rated-R Superstar disagreed and firmly told Punk that if they do meet in two weeks, he will take his title, but he didn’t get the response he expected and Punk sn-iggered when wishing him luck before walking out of the shot, not going down at all well with the Canadian who stared in Punk’s direction.


*Match 2*
World Heavyweight Championship Number One Contender Tournament
Second Round Match
Bryan Danielson vs. TJ Wilson w/Natalya Neidhart
vs. Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez

CM Punk was shown watching backstage in his locker room as three guys gave it their all to join Edge in next week’s final for a shot at the world title at Night of Champions. All three were very impressive, but the tide turned in favour of Del Rio-Ramirez when he ducked a jumping high knee from Danielson before nailing him with one almighty enzuigiri. It was only a desperate dive from Wilson that stopped a three count. The Canadian & Mexican made their way back up with Del Rio-Ramirez firing TJ into the ropes, but Wilson held onto them, much to the frustration of the very determined Mexican. He ran right at TJ and into an outstretched elbow that sent him staggering away from the ropes.

Wilson quickly stepped through the ropes and onto the apron, getting ready to seal the deal with the Code Blue, a springboard front flip neck-breaker, and he hit it, but as he was about to go for the cover, Danielson jumped on the back of him and applied the LeBell Lock to a decent pop, putting TJ through hell, eventually giving him no choice but to tap. The fans popped again for Danielson as he got his arm raised, and the camera briefly cut back to Punk’s locker room, looking impressed by what he saw. Danielson posed for the fans, clearly delighted to have progressed to the final while Natalya entered the ring to check on TJ as he began to stir.

Winner: Bryan Danielson by submission.


{Commercial Break}

Backstage, The Empire (Wade Barrett, Drew McIntyre, William Regal & Katie Lee) were walking through the halls, bumping into TJ Wilson & Natalya Neidhart on their way back from the ring. Wilson & Natalya stopped, looking extremely vulnerable with their smiling rivals surrounding them. Barrett mocked TJ for his loss and told him that he better get used to losing as in two weeks at Night of Champions, he & McIntyre will beat him & Paul Burchill to become the new WWE Tag Team Champions and when Regal wins the big one, the World Heavyweight Championship. Despite being surrounded, TJ told them there was no way he was going to let them take the titles and they better get used to that. The Canadian then grabbed Natalya’s hand and pulled her away, barging past Regal, not bothering the cocky British foursome in the least, still sn-iggering amongst themselves.

*Match 3*
Yoshi Tatsu vs. Chavo Guerrero

At the start of the contest it was clear that Chavo thought he had it in the bag, but Yoshi gave him a real fright. Chavo took his time when he had the Japanese superstar set up for a brain-buster, but when he tried to lift him, Yoshi blocked it before hitting a suplex of his own. He went on taking the match to the Mexican, but the veteran turned the momentum back in his favour when he ducked a roundhouse kick and connected with the Three Amigo’s. Yoshi was toast then, and after finally connecting with the brain-buster, Chavo went up top and sealed the deal with a Frog Splash.

Chavo looked pleased with himself initially and then went after a microphone to talk about how earlier on the fans found out that J-Red isn’t as amazing as they all think and say he is. He then said that the huge run of luck he’s been on is coming to an end and that he wants to be the one to end it. Tazz then walked out to the stage to a pop and told Chavo he was going to give him the chance to do just that, making one last match between the former mentor & rookie at Night Of Champions for the Cruiserweight Championship in a Falls Count Anywhere match. Chavo was nodding emphatically, looking very excited at the prospect of that match as Tazz turned round and headed back through the curtain with the fans booing the smug Chavo.

Winner: Chavo Guerrero by pinfall.


{Commercial Break}

Matt Sydal & Mickie James were laughing together, getting all close in the back when something or someone caught their attention. It was the frustrated figure of Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez walking towards them, and he didn’t look at all happy to see them laughing at him. The Mexican was livid and asked them what it was they were laughing at, and Sydal let him know that they felt he got what he deserved for jumping John Cena last week, calling him a coward and saying how cowards always get what they deserve. Del Rio-Ramirez tried to fight his inner rage, seemingly managing to do so as he turned to walk away, but he then turned back in a flash to sucker punch the United States Champion, putting him on the floor.

He then knelt down and got in Sydal’s face, but Mickie grabbed his arm to get him up, and Del Rio-Ramirez instinctively swung his arm back, knocking Mickie back and she hit the floor too. She was clutching her face and the Mexican looked stunned as he turned round to see her there, even sorry for what he did. He stood up and looked like he wanted to apologise, but he didn’t get the chance as Sydal picked himself back up and shoved him hard in the chest, furiously yelling at him, calling him a coward again for hitting a woman. Mickie sat up and said she was okay, but her boyfriend was steaming and had to be pulled away from Del Rio-Ramirez by a group of officials as he continued screaming at him, goading him into a fight, not getting one though from an unusually restrained Del Rio-Ramirez.


*Match 4*
Maria vs. O.D.B.

Poor Maria never stood a chance against the crazy O.D.B., and from the moment Maria walked out into the arena to see her opponent waiting for her, the fear was there for all to see. O.D.B. was dominant and let the WWE audience see just how dangerous she can be when she scooped Maria up from the mat before tossing her backwards with a fallaway slam. She showed some athleticism too with an instant kip up, and after laughing at the sight of Maria struggling to get up onto one knee, she put her out of a misery thanks to a fireman’s carry into a cutter to seal the inevitable victory.

O.D.B. however wasn’t done there and after taking a big swig from her flask and scaring the ref out of the ring, she watched with amusement as Maria attempted to sit up. She then walked over to her and dragged her back up, getting a ton of heat from the crowd with Maria begging for mercy, almost in tears. Thankfully, “Obsession” hit to a big pop and Mickie James & Layla charged down the ramp to save her from O.D.B.’s clutches.

O.D.B. wasn’t happy at all and ran right at Mickie, but Mickie ducked a wild clothesline and hit a quick spin kick before setting her up for an Implant DDT to a huge roar from the fans. The crazy diva blocked it though and shoved Mickie away, but with Layla backing her up and ready to go to, both holding their fists up, she chose to take her leave, albeit very reluctantly, eyes locked on them both & Maria as she stepped backwards up the ramp, cursing at Mickie & Co back in the ring with “Obsession” playing again.

Winner: O.D.B. by pinfall


{Commercial Break}

*Match 5*
World Heavyweight Championship Number One Contender Tournament
Second Round Match
John Cena vs. Ron Killings
vs. William Regal w/Katie Lee

A lot of the crowd were behind Cena, but the usual boos that follow him around were there again as he took on both Killings & Regal. Killings was over with a lot of the crowd, and after seeing Regal slip down Cena’s back after an F-U attempt to then follow it up with a german suplex, The Truth struck the Englishman with a jumping heel kick enzuigiri. It was only enough for a two count however, but Killings was fired up, and with Cena & Regal down, he sensed he had a chance there & then to join Edge & Danielson in next week’s final.

He went after the weary Regal and gave him a helping hand up to his knees, then ran back into the ropes, coming back for a scissors kick, but Regal sidestepped it and kicked him in the gut before setting him up for the Regal Plex. Killings blocked it though, fighting for his life and countering to hit the Truth Conviction, a sitout inverted suplex slam. He was left devastated to see Regal kick out at two, but as he sat up, he saw Cena getting back up. Cena was on his feet and The Truth flew right at him, right into an F-U that sent him rolling to the apron.

Cena turned his head in a flash and went after Regal, jumping right down on him to lock him in the STFU, taking the Englishman well & truly off guard, and with the crowd split in their cheering & jeering of Cena, Regal finally gave in the fight despite Katie Lee’s frantic encouragement and tapped out, meaning Cena will face Edge, Danielson and the winner of the final tournament match to come later on. Cena was psyched after and got his arm raised with a look of real determination on his face as he stared into the split crowd, fully focused on next week and the chance to face CM Punk at Night of Champions.

Winner: John Cena by submission.


{Commercial Break}

“You’re Not Enough for Me” was playing and Michelle McCool headed down to the ramp, collecting a microphone up off the ramp. She was beaming, looking very cocky indeed as she soaked up the heat from the crowd, going onto talk about how she’s beaten Beth Phoenix two weeks in a row, quickly changing gear to say how much of a joke it is that she’s not standing there as the Divas Champion. The fans clearly disagreed with her but she continued to state her case, how because of a technicality two weeks ago, despite beating Beth, albeit by count out, she wasn’t awarded the divas title.

The number one contender for Beth’s title then said that she proved she can beat Beth last week by pinning her 1-2-3 in the middle of the ring, and that when she gets her second chance in two weeks at Night of Champions, she will do so again, and this time she will be the Divas Champion. The fans continued to boo her, but the boos quickly turned to cheers when “Glamazon” hit and Beth Phoenix, the Divas Champion made her way into the arena, not in the best of moods. She walked down to the ring with purpose, walking past the angry McCool to collect a microphone, and she had plenty to say. The Divas Champion explained that there was a reason she’s not the Divas Champion and why the fans don’t believe she can beat her fair & square, it’s because she can’t.

The fans cheered and Beth went onto say that a count out isn’t a fair way to win a title and last week it took a handful of tights and the ropes to beat her. The Glamazon then firmly told McCool that even she knows deep down she can’t beat her and that all she’s doing is trying to convince herself as well as the fans. McCool didn’t like what she heard, but Beth wasn’t done there. She told Michelle that at Night of Champions she’ll find out herself what everyone else already knows, that she (McCool) can’t beat her and there’s nothing she can do to change that as she (Beth) will still be the Divas Champion.

“Glamazon” played again and Beth raised her title up in the air, something McCool didn’t appreciate, and as Beth turned round to leave the ring, she clubbed the champion across the back. The fans booed as the music cut and McCool continued to put the boots to The Glamazon before grabbing the title. She took a long look at it and then took it with her as she headed back up the ramp with her music hitting one more time, and as Beth sat up, she saw McCool at the top of the ramp holding her title with a big smirk on her face, and Beth was absolutely livid, glaring back at her and gesturing at her rival that she’s going to get even, only amusing McCool even more.


{Commercial Break}



>2 Weeks!<

*Match 6*
World Heavyweight Championship Number One Contender Tournament
Second Round Match
Shawn Michaels vs. Charlie Haas vs. Dolph Ziggler

All three men gave it their all to get their hands on the final spot alongside Edge, Danielson & Cena, and with the crowd firmly behind The Heartbreak Kid from the get go, he seemed destined to secure that spot. He was a split second away from doing just that when he dodged a leg drop bulldog attempt from Ziggler before sending him right back down when he got up with a scoop slam. H.B.K. went all the way up to the dizzy heights of the top rope to an almighty pop, jumping off to nail Dolph with the diving elbow drop. Ziggler was done, and as the ref’s hand was about to come down for the third time, Haas dived across with nothing but desperation to break up the count.

The fans were left devastated, and as Michaels & Haas then battled it out, Michaels survived a valiant attempt from Haas, just slipping to safety as Haas locked to hit the Olympic Slam. Shawn landed on his feet and took him down with a swinging neck-breaker, only just missing out on a three count again. The Heartbreak Kid was in complete control and retreated to the corner, tuning up the band for the Sweet Chin Music. Ziggler was coming round by the ropes and could only look on as Michaels then flew out of the corner, exploding with the Super Kick.

Everyone was left shocked as Haas ducked it and quickly went looking for the Olympic Slam one more time. Again Michaels slipped to safety, landing on his feet next to the ropes and shoving Haas forward. Haas was frustrated as hell and turned round in a flash to run right at Michaels, right into some Sweet Chin Music. The roof blew off the arena, but before Michaels could make the cover, Ziggler ran up behind him and tossed him out of the ring through the ropes. The crowd was in shock as he then turned round and jumped on top of Haas who was flat out, defenceless & powerless as Ziggler made the cover, getting a three count and the last place in next week’s number one contender match.

The fans were stunned as Ziggler celebrated as if he’d won the world title with Michaels sitting up in shock on the outside, completely gobsmacked as Ziggler got his arm raised and then headed up to the second rope, celebrating his victory in front of the still shell-shocked fans. Michaels shook his head, clearly disappointed as Dolph then jumped down off the ropes and nodded his head with a huge smug smile on his face looking incredibly proud of himself, gesturing how he’d be the next World Champion.

Winner: Dolph Ziggler by pinfall.


{Commercial Break}

A very serious looking Dolph Ziggler was making his way through the backstage area, coming from the ring when he was stopped by Josh Matthews. Josh congratulated him on his win and asked him how he was feeling after winning the last place in the fatal four-way match next week to decide who will face CM Punk at Night of Champions. Ziggler was full of purpose as he said that he was just one step away from fighting for the World Heavyweight Championship and how it proves what he’s said all along, that he has what it takes to be the best in the business. He continued to say that he was within touching distance of greatness and how after next week he was going to get even closer with just one last thing to do, become the new World Heavyweight Champion, stating that it wouldn’t be Shawn Michaels as he just beat him, it wouldn’t be John Cena or Edge either, it’ll be the one & only Dolph Ziggler, staring straight into the camera, meaning every word he said.

*The Main Event*
Non-Title No Disqualification Match
Batista vs. CM Punk

Punk knew he was in a battle from the start and he came prepared with a game plan, working on Batista’s legs, and when The Animal at one point towards the end was all set to hit a spear, the big man’s legs let him down and they gave way before he could get to the World Heavyweight Champion. Punk was revelling in it as he stood up with a big smirk on his face, but after failing to put Raw’s former WWE Champion away, even after a ferocious roundhouse kick, he set his sights on a steel chair used previously in the match. He stood over Batista as he pulled himself back up, talking smack at the Raw superstar before bringing the chair down towards his skull, but The Animal jumped up and planted him with a spine-buster to one hell of a pop.

The Animal was well & truly unleashed as he kicked the chair away from Punk before retreating to the corner, stalking him for another spear, and this time he hit it. Punk though showed some serious resilience and kicked out at two, but Batista knew he had him on the brink and pulled him right back up, into position for the Batista Bomb. The Animal stared scarily into the crowd, all set to put Punk away when “The Game” blasted out through the speakers and into the arena. The fans booed like mad as Batista pushed Punk aside and went to the ropes, waiting for Triple H to walk out on out. Batista was calling for him to bring his ass down, but he never came as Punk crawled across to pick up the chair.

As the World Champion then stood up with the chair in hand, Batista saw him sizing him up on the tron. He turned round and ran at Punk, right into a chair shot to the gut. The music stopped and Punk then tossed the chair at Batista, and he grabbed it, holding it up close to his face, only for Punk to blast him with a roundhouse kick onto the steel that flew back into The Animal’s face. It put the big man down and Punk was right on him to make the cover, getting a three count to pick up a very impressive notch for his résumé.

“This Fire Burns” hit and The Straight-Edge Superstar slowly stood up to get his arm raised with his world title being passed to him, but the crowd were pissed. He then tapped his head with one finger, seemingly pointing out he used his head, possibly being behind Triple H’s music playing moments earlier. He was loving it and posed with his title, throwing it up into the air alongside a huge smug look of satisfaction as Smackdown drew to a close with Batista also coming round, not knowing where he was with Punk standing tall.

Winner: CM Punk by pinfall.

Default Re: WWE: A Strong Response




>Headlines!<



>And Then There Were Four!<

Last night we discovered who the final four men in with a chance of battling it out for the World Heavyweight Championship at Night of Champions would be, and next Friday we’ll see those four men collide in a fatal four-way elimination match with the winner earning the right to meet CM Punk in two weeks.

The first man to book his place in the tournament final was ‘The Rated-R Superstar’ Edge after he came out on top in his triple threat match with J-Red & Elijah Burke, clinching the victory with a spear on the Cruiserweight Champion. The next superstar to advance to the last stage was Shawn Michaels’ protégé, Bryan Danielson. He emerged victorious from his encounter with TJ Wilson & Alberto Del Rio-Ramirez, forcing Wilson to tap out to the LeBell Lock.

With two places left, John Cena joined Edge & Danielson when he came through his match against Ron Killings & William Regal, making the Englishman tap out to the STFU. That left just the one spot, and ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ Shawn Michaels battled it out with Charlie Haas & Dolph Ziggler for that spot. It was fair to say that the fans expected The Heartbreak Kid to come out on top, however that wasn’t how it turned out. Against the odds, Ziggler left everyone in attendance stunned, taking advantage of Michaels’ super kick to Haas to put himself within touching distance of a shot at the world title.

Now that the contenders have been whittled down from 24 to 4, this time next week there’ll be just one left standing, and that man will take on CM Punk at Night of Champions. Make sure you tune into Smackdown next week to see who that man will be.





>Last Chance Saloon!<

To say that the relationship between J-Red & Chavo Guerrero has been a rocky one would be a huge understatement, but their wild ride isn’t over yet.

Ever since Red debuted on Smackdown as Chavo’s rookie, the popularity & success he quickly gained didn’t set well with his mentor, especially when he defeated Chavo. The veteran refused to acknowledge it was jealousy, but whatever it was, it got the better of him when he turned on his rookie in an angry fashion. Since then Red has gone onto win the Cruiserweight Championship, even after Chavo stopped him in his tracks during his first title clash with Johnny Jeter when he was all set to win the gold.

That didn’t stop Red defeating Chavo one more time before going onto defeat Jeter and become the new Cruiserweight Champion. The Mexican Warrior’s anger however still hasn’t subsided one bit, and before Red could celebrate his success, he was jumped by his former mentor. Last night we heard from Guerrero that he has been given one last chance in his attempt to beat Red, and at Night of Champions they will meet with Red’s title on the line in a Falls Count Anywhere match.

Will Chavo finally be able to beat his bitter rival, or will the incredibly popular young sensation get the better of him yet again?
