Default Re: WWE: A Strong Response

I've just stopped by to say I'm really enjoying what you're doing with FCW. It's really good how you're taking the time to focus on developmental talent, and you have some really good ideas already.

The Million Dollar Family seem great, and I'm pleased they picked up the win, and the tournament for the FCW Florida Heavyweight Champion is nice, although I'm wondering why there was no women's action this week as last time I commented you had really built it up quite nicely. But hey, I guess if it needs to take a night off, so should be, because you do have a lot of things to focus on, such as the tournament and the many characters of development.

I'm sorry this isn't a deep comment, but I just thought I'd pop by to say as like all your other shows, you're doing a great job keeping me entertained with your writing.

Keep this up, can't wait to see more!

I think with the show only being mildly recapped, there may be a lack of detail in some promos, while other things stand out more. I wanted to play on Katie Lea & The Empire make their impression on the show by building them up, so Katie Lea's promo with Shantelle Taylor being introduced as the Womens Champion before set that up i thought to start a feud between the two. There aren't too many women on the roster, but you will see them represented each week

Thanks for the comments though man, it's cool to see someone appreciating the developmental side of the business

Hey Nige, just seen the FCW results. I like what you are doing with FCW and by posting the results every week it will help us to get familiar with the talent before they get called up. I like Shantelle Taylor being there, she is great and the feud between her and Katie Lea should be interesting. The Millian Dollar Family looks like a good team too, I don't like Jesse and Festus so was glad to see the Million Dollar Family picking up the win. The match between Jake Hager and Nic Nemeth would be good to see, both are talented guys for sure. I like the tourney you have going. James Reiher winning in the main event was good, I always thought that he was the star or the Deuce and Domino team. He has the ring skill and the charisma to be a solid singles competitor so it should be interesting to see his run in FCW.

This is interesting Nige, good job. And I am looking forward to the next Raw.

WAS CENA SET UP FOR A FALL? CONSEQUENCES FOR THOSE INVOLVED?

Randy Orton & The McMahon’s were put in a difficult spot last week by being forced to take on Evolution & John Cena in a eight man tag team match, they had the backs against the wall if they were going to escape unhurt. It was always likely that they would try and find some way out of it, and it appears they did just that. Randy Orton went to The McMahon’s early in the evening and stated he had a plan. Later on backstage, Paul Bearer, Kane’s father was found unconscious on the floor by Eric Bischoff and several other officials. However, lying curiously next to Bearer was a John Cena cap, suggesting that Cena was behind the attack. As Bearer was then put in to an ambulance and taken to a local medical facility, his son Kane was there and not too happy as you would expect.

With just moments to go before the main event, it appeared Kane wasn’t in the mood to let his father’s attacker get away with it. As the main event participants made their way to the ring, there was only John Cena left as he walked out to the stage, only to be confronted by an angry Kane, who chokeslammed Cena off of the stage through some tables below. Orton & The McMahon’s seemed very happy at that sight, but Eric Bischoff, the Raw Head of Authority soon changed that. He suggested that they were behind the attack in order to make their night a whole lot more comfortable. He then gave them the match he believed they wanted, a handicap match against Evolution, but then turned the screw by saying the handicap would be in Evolution’s favour.

Vince McMahon & Randy Orton were shell shocked as Bischoff stated that Shane & JBL would be banished to the locker room and would also be suspended if they interfered in the match. With Orton & McMahon angry, they fell short as Triple H won the match with a pedigree on his father-in-law for good measure. We wondered what would happen last Friday night on Smackdown with Evolution & The McMahon Men making appearances there the last couple of weeks, but they were banned from the arena by Smackdown GM, William Regal. With Cena apparently unable to travel to Winnipeg due to the injuries sustained last week, what will the consequences be for those that attacked him and Paul Bearer? There’s only one way to find out.


PUNK SENDS JEFF A REMINDER
Since returning to Raw a number of weeks ago after being screwed out of the Intercontinental Championship at the Royal Rumble, Jeff Hardy has seemed to have had CM Punk’s number. He shocked the current Intercontinental Champion by confronting him backstage on his return, and a week later, he pinned Punk after teaming up with Eugene to take on The Straight Edge Superstar and the woman who turned on him at the Rumble, Sunny. However, last week we saw Punk react in a way that we couldn’t have anticipated. Jeff was celebrating a victory last week when Punk appeared on the main screen inside the arena as he stood in the parking lot. He called Jeff out there, and it appeared that Jeff’s hot head got the better of him as he went after Punk. What he didn’t know was that Punk wasn’t alone, being aided by a friend who jumped Jeff before Punk choked him with a pipe. Just who was helping Punk, and how is Jeff as we get closer to their I Quit match at Wrestlemania?

JERICHO BACK AT HOME, AND A GUEST ON THE VIP LOUNGE
The quest for the Money in the Bank contract has been chaotic, and has only got more personal week by week. Chris Jericho & Bobby Lashley have had their problems to say the least over the last month, but they were forced to put them to one side last Monday night after being put together by Eric Bischoff to face Mr. Kennedy & Elijah Burke, two more superstars who are in the hunt for the all important contract. It seemed though that Lashley couldn’t forgive and forget Jericho’s previous actions as he tore him in half with a spear that allowed Burke to win the match. However it wasn’t just Jericho & Lashley that had their problems as Kennedy showed the only allegiance he has is with himself as he gave Burke the taste of The Mic Check after their win.

However, there was more at stake last week when the remaining two participants in the Ladder Match at Wrestlemania finally went at it singles action with Rey Mysterio getting the chance at retribution following MVP’s sneak attack over a month ago. MVP seemed determined to get even with Rey too after The Mexican Sensation cost him a match the week before, but it was MVP’s hot head that allowed Rey to pick up a huge victory going in to Wrestlemania. However, last Friday gave them another chance to get at each other as Rey travelled to MVP’s home of Smackdown. MVP demanded a shot at Rey, and he got it, only for it to be a tag team match that saw Rey team up with Shawn Michaels to take on MVP & Edge. MVP was able to set the record even after pinning Rey.

And this Monday night, we have been advised that the slightly happier MVP will be appearing on Raw yet again, but he will be bringing The VIP Lounge with him as he interviews one of his Wrestlemania opponents in the shape of the home town boy, Chris Jericho. What will these charismatic individuals have to say?


MORRISON & MIZ TO MAKE A STATEMENT?
Two weeks back, John Morrison & The Miz picked up a debut victory on Raw, defeating Cryme Time, but last week they made their intentions clear by stating that they came to Raw to become the World Tag Team Champions. They sent a message to Paul London & Brian Kendrick, saying that their title run was a joke and that it would be coming to an end very soon. We have been advised by Eric Bischoff that the two teams will go at it in non title action this Monday night. Will Raw’s newest team make a huge statement this coming week by defeating the champions?

VICTORIA EARNS HER SHOT AT THE GOLD, ANOTHER DIVA’S CHANCE AT PAYBACK THIS WEEK
Last week, Victoria was given one more opportunity at Beth Phoenix’s Womens Championship, and despite Natalya Neidhart being banned from ringside, The Glamazon still found an easy way out, getting herself disqualified to save her title. However, Eric Bischoff wasn’t going to allow her to get away with it as he made a rematch for Wrestlemania that would also see Natalya banned from ringside. But that was not all, as Bischoff stated that if Phoenix was to get her disqualified again, she would lose the title and it would be awarded to Victoria.

This Monday night however, one more diva on the wrong end of The Glamazon & Natalya’s actions will get the chance at revenge, as Michelle McCool goes one on one with Natalya. Are we seeing Beth & Natalya’s plans falling in around them?


PLUS
Santino Marella has promised everyone a special surprise this coming week on Raw. He was over the moon last week after getting revenge on Cryme Time & Ron Killings the week before after they raided his and Melina’s personal property a week earlier. Just what does Santino have in store for us this week?

The Colon Brothers were able to pick up a victory at long last over the team of Kofi Kingston & Cody Rhodes. Although they were aided by Eric Perez in their corner, they were finally able to overcome their bitter rivals. What does that mean for the two sides of this personal battle when Raw heads in to Canada on Monday night?

After turning his back on his partner a couple of weeks ago, we heard from Lance Cade last week as he made it clear he was sick of being the one to carry Trevor Murdoch. From what we hear, Cade will be in action this coming week on Raw? Will he able to put the past behind him?

The latest Hall of Fame inductee will be announced this Monday after we found out Ric Flair will be joining Owen Hart & Ted DiBiase in this year’s class of inductees. Just who will be taking their place alongside these legends?



CONFIRMED FOR THIS MONDAY NIGHT ON RAW

NON TITLE MATCH
Paul London & Brian Kendrick vs. John Morrison & The Miz


Michelle McCool vs. Natalya Neidhart

“Voices”
hits as Randy Orton, the WWE Champion walks down to the ring, not looking very happy at all. Dressed in jeans and a shirt, he collects a microphone from Lilian Garcia. He says that he’s come out here to address an abuse of power from a general manager that has clearly had it in for him since day one. He says that Eric Bischoff is supposed to be the Independent Head of Authority, but last week he proved that was not the case when he put Vince McMahon & himself (Orton) in a handicap match against Evolution. The crowd cheer and Orton says that they would have enjoyed what they saw, but so did Bischoff and that’s the point he’s trying to make, saying that he is clearly abusing his power which should see him removed from the position of general manager. The crowd boo as he carries on and says that Bischoff is a disgrace, but he is cut off as “I’m Back” plays & Eric Bischoff makes his way down to the ring. He tells Orton that if anybody was out of line last week, it was Orton.

He says that the only reason he changed the match to a handicap match was because along with The McMahon’s, Orton conspired to attack Paul Bearer and made it very clear that they wanted Kane to think that John Cena was behind the attack. Orton cuts in and says that’s all the proof he needs that it was Cena who attacked Bearer and tells him he’s already made his feelings known to Bischoff’s superiors. Bischoff smiles and says he’s aware of that because they called him for an explanation, and he tells Orton that they too believe his first assumption, that Cena would never stoop to the levels of what happened to Paul Bearer last week, and leaving the hat there was all too easy. Orton says there’s no proof and he better be careful what he accuses him of. Bischoff says when Bearer returns to Raw next week, he’s going to have some interesting things to say, with Orton looking very pissed. Bischoff then says that he’s not the only one who’s pissed either and says that after Kane attacked Cena last week, WWE.com got some exclusive footage. He tells everyone to look at the tron as we see Kane walking through the curtain and pushing storage boxes over as well as anything in sight.

Bischoff then says maybe Orton should have thought about the consequences were and says that as a general manager, the last thing he wants is Kane walking round on a rampage last week and another superstar on the injured list like Cena. Orton asks him what he’s talking about when “Burned” blasts out and Kane walks out to the top of the stage. With his pyro scaring everyone to death as the lights go out with just red spotlights on, Orton panics as he leaves the ring and stands by the announce table. Bischoff also goes to the outside as Kane walks down to the ring and pushes the steel steps and then climbs in to the ring with Orton high tailing round to the ramp. As he backs up, Kane sets his pyro off to a huge blast, but as the lights come back on, Kane’s music stops and Bischoff lifts the microphone to his mouth on the outside. He tells Kane he knows why he’s angry, but says he’s going to do something about it, because right here tonight it’s going to be Kane going one on one with Randy Orton. A huge pop hits as Orton looks shocked on the ramp. He starts yelling towards Bischoff as “Burned” plays again with Orton looking very worried on the ramp.



***COMMERCIAL BREAK***


***VIDEO PROMO***






***CUT TO THE ARENA***


“La Vittoria e Mia”
hits the speakers inside the arena as Santino Marella makes his way down to the ring, accompanied by Melina with a big smile on his face to heat from the crowd. Melina is carrying a T shirt gun while Santino has a large white sack in hand. As he gets in the ring, wearing his ring gear and his blue Italia shirt, he walks over to get a microphone. He says that tonight for the first time ever in the history of Canadia, they are going to have some fun, thanks to Santino Marella. With the fans booing him straight away he says it’s more than fun because they are going to get the chance to join in something brand new to Monday Night Raw, a little something he put together. He says it is the three S’s, The Santino Sale Spectacular. The fans boo but he tells them it is going to be a great and better than the stupid auctions The Crimes Times do. He then reaches down and teases pulling something out of the bag when he turns back to the crowd and asks them if they’re ready to bite his legs off or whatever it is they say in Canadia. Again they boo, and he then reaches down and pulls out a picture of himself with the Intercontinental Championship and says this is a picture of the greatest Intercontinental Champion of all time and that he will start the bidding at $500. Some idiots put their hands up in the front row, but Santino tells them they don’t have the money and says that no one in Canadia will have the money for such a piece of wrestling history.

He then puts it back and pulls out a T shirt, the same one as the blue Italia one he is currently wearing and says it is signed and that he will even get the very beautiful Melina to fire it to the winner, but suddenly “Bringin Da Hood To You” blasts out as Cryme Time & Ron Killings walk out to the stage. Shad has a microphone in hand and says that no one wants to see Santino’s Sale whatever and that his sales talk is whack, then says what the people want is to see Santino’s sack shoved up his you know what. Santino gets angry and says that is how they say rude and he will not allow it. Killings takes the microphone from Shad and says as much of an ass that Santino is, they all can’t jump on him tonight and says only one of them should march on down there and get up in his face. Santino cuts in and says he has an idea since he would like to embarrass them tonight. He turns to Melina and says that she can use the lovely piece of machinery to fire a T shirt at them, and whoever it lands closest to gets to wrestle Santino and a signed T shirt. Killings & Cryme Time look at each other and say he’s got a deal. Melina loads up the T shirt gun and fires it towards the top of the stage with the shirt landing close by JTG’s feet. He smiles and picks up the shirt, then pretends to wipe his ass with it as Santino looks on angrily from the ring with JTG then walking down along with Shad & Killings.



***THE OPENING MATCH***

JTG w/Shad & Ron Killings vs. Santino Marella w/Melina

ENDING:
JTG lies in wait as he sees Santino standing back up, and as soon as The Italian Stallion is back up, JTG levels him with several right hands, knocking Marella back in to the corner. The referee doesn’t like the punches and tells JTG to open his fist, and with the slight distraction in place, Santino takes advantage by raking JTG’s eyes. JTG turns round holding his face and walks out of the corner with Santino following him out and then taking him down to the mat with a JAWBREAKER. . . . . Marella looks very confident as he turns over on the mat and goes for a cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . JTG gets his shoulder up and Santino doesn’t look happy as the referee signals the count was just 2. After a short spat with the referee, Santino stands back up and urges JTG to get back up, and as he does, Marella goes for an irish whip. JTG though, reverses it and nails Santino as he comes back with a DIVING LEG LARIAT. . . . . Santino drops to the mat in a heap, but JTG races back up and in to the corner as he climbs to the top rope with Santino making his way back up. JTG gets to the top, and as his opponent turns round, he leaps off the top and connects with a MISSILE DROPKICK. . . . . The crowd cheer loudly for JTG, and he looks to finish the match off by going for a cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . Santino kicks out, leaving JTG a little frustrated as he sits back up. As he sits up though, he sees Melina in front of him, standing up on the apron with the little sack of goodies in. JTG seems intrigued and walks over, then asks Melina what’s in the bag, but she tries to pull it back. However, unbeknown to JTG, Santino is crawling up behind him and then rolls him up in to a SCHOOLBOY. . . . . Melina drops back to the floor and the referee turns round. Santino holds on to the tights and the ropes, but the ref doesn’t see that as he makes the count 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . 3.


WINNER: Santino Marella by pinfall @ 4.39


AFTERMATH: “La Vittoria e Mia” plays as Santino quickly sneaks under the bottom rope to the outside to join Melina as Shad & Killings slide in, failing to get at Santino as he & Melina back track up the ramp with big smiles on their faces.


***CUT BACKSTAGE***


Eric Bischoff
is on the phone, seemingly talking to Linda McMahon when The McMahon Men walk in to the room, getting a lot of heat from inside the arena. Vince is pissed and asks Bischoff just what the hell he thought he was doing last week, putting him in a position of danger like that. Bischoff tells Linda he’ll call her back and Vince picks up on the fact of who he was talking too and asks him why he’s talking to Linda. Bischoff says that it’s quite clear like he told Randy Orton earlier on, she and the Board of Directors agree with him that The McMahon’s & Orton set Cena up last week to try and help themselves out of the match and make it a 4 on 3 advantage. Vince says that Orton was right when he said Bischoff had no proof and that he will have no problem dragging Bischoff through every court in the land if he says otherwise. Bischoff laughs and says Vince can try but he won’t win, which is funny really because win is something he didn’t do last week and won’t do again this week either. JBL looks at Bischoff and asks him what he’s getting at. Bischoff says that at Wrestlemania we all know it will be all three of them going up against Evolution, but tonight there is going to be a sneak preview due to the events of last week. The crowd in the arena seem to like that while Bischoff says that he’s going to allow Vince some kind of control over the match.

He tells Vince he can choose which one of his sons will help him take on Batista & Ric Flair later on. JBL tells Bischoff to listen to him and says that Bischoff is clearly abusing his power as the quote independent general manager. He says that he needs to remember who he’s dealing with here, The McMahon family could eat Eric Bischoff for breakfast if they had to, and if Bischoff isn’t careful, that’s exactly what they’ll do. Bischoff is furious and tells JBL that around here he is the man with the power, and asks him just why he was put in charge, reminding them that it was because they abused their power for their own benefit. He then tells them that their threats don’t scare him, and that’s why he was hired by Linda, then tells us that he has the total backing of the board of directors, and if they don’t like it, then it’s tough. JBL looks like he wants to swing for Bischoff but Vince steps in and tells JBL he can use that aggression in the ring later on tonight before asking Shane if that’s okay with him. Shane O Mac says that’s fine and Bischoff then tells him that he doesn’t want Shane or Triple H anywhere near ringside tonight to make sure everything is fair. JBL still stares intensely towards Bischoff until Vince tells him they better go get ready before he does something he regrets. They leave the room with Bischoff smiling as they shut the door.

Michelle McCool standing up backstage to bully tactics from Beth Phoenix & Natalya, only for them to attack her


***CUT TO THE ARENA***


***MATCH #2***

Michelle McCool vs. Natalya Neidhart w/Beth Phoenix

ENDING:
Natalya reaches down and pulls McCool back up to her feet, but she is left surprised as McCool pushes her away. Natalya isn’t in the mood to be pushed around and walks straight back towards McCool, who is able to stand up and roll her in to an INSIDE CRADLE. . . . . 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . An emphatic kick out sees Natalya saved with them both rushing back up to their feet. Natalya swings at McCool, but McCool ducks it and then tries to go for a NECKBREAKER. . . . . Natalya holds firm though and fights it, then shifts round and pulls Natalya in to position for a GIT WRENCH SUPLEX. . . . . Lifting her up in to the air, Natalya then brings McCool crashing down to the mat with a big bang. The crowd can feel that one, and Natalya instantly walks round to her opponents legs and locks in THE SHARPSHOOTER. . . . . As the hold getting some cheers due to Bret Hart, Natalya applies a lot of pressure with McCool trying desperately to fight it, but it’s no good as she has no choice but to tap out with the referee calling for the bell.


WINNER: Natalya Neidhart by submission @ 4.27


AFTERMATH: Natalya’s music hits, but she doesn’t let go of the hold as the referee tries to force her off McCool. Phoenix then gets inside the ring and holds on to the referee as Natalya continues to make McCool suffer until “Lady To Mess With” hits, and Victoria runs down the ramp. Beth panics and lets go of her belt and the referee as Victoria slides under the bottom rope. Beth runs at her, but Victoria ducks under Beth’s arm and then hits her with right hands and takes her down with a clothesline. Natalya is up and she runs in to another clothesline from Victoria, who then runs at Beth as she gets up by the ropes and clotheslines her over the top rope to the outside. Natalya then comes from behind Victoria and spins her round, but Victoria kicks her in the stomach and lifts Natalya over her shoulder and over the top rope on to Beth as she stands back up, catching Natalya with them both falling back down to the floor. Victoria stares down at them but then sees the Womens Championship on the mat. She walks over to it and picks it up, then raises it up in the air as Beth & Natalya stand back up on the outside and look on in anger. Victoria then walks over to the ropes and tosses right by Beth’s feet as they glare at each other with the crowd cheering.


***CUT BACKSTAGE***


Todd Grisham
is standing by and he introduces his guest to us, the Intercontinental Champion, CM Punk & Sunny. They walk in to the shot and Grisham watches on as the mystery man that along with Punk, attacked Jeff Hardy last week. Grisham asks Punk just why he felt the need to attack Jeff like he did last week, and who this guy is as well as why he brought someone else in to help him. Punk says he doesn’t answer to anyone but himself, but since Jeff is all laid up like John Cena this week, and that he’s in such a good mood, he’ll tell him. He says that the last couple of weeks, people have conspired against him, such as Jeff Hardy, Eric Bischoff and his vegetable brain nephew. He then says that no one, and he means no one ever tries to put one over on CM Punk and gets away with it. He says that Bischoff might think he’s the most intelligent guy around here, but he says that if there was ever any doubt, he proved that wasn’t the case last week by outsmarting Jeff Hardy yet again. He says that Jeff is probably even dumber than Eugene, and that’s why he fell in to the trap last week, walking right in to his hands to get what he deserved for blindsiding him a few weeks back.

Punk says that with the numbers against him, he had to even it up, and to do that he had to enlist the help of the one man he trusts most in the world, Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana. He says that he and Colt together have the two things you need to succeed in this business, the wrestling ability and the wrestling mentality, the ruthless side of the brain that drives you to do whatever it takes to reach the top, just like they both will. Punk seems to get distracted and looks past the camera, asking someone what the hell they want. The camera then reveals Eric Bischoff standing there along with security. Bischoff says that Punk made a mistake last week, attacking Jeff Hardy in cold blood, and since he likes playing the parking lot so much, that’s what he can do tonight, then tells security to remove them from the building. Sunny mouths off at Bischoff while Punk & Cabana face up to security until Punk says that Bischoff’s not worth the trouble and they did what they had to last week. He then turns round along with Cabana & Sunny to walk out of the arena. Bischoff walks just past Grisham to watch Punk go and without the microphone, Grisham asks Bischoff how he’s doing, and Bischoff says that he’s having a good night and it’s gonna keep on going that way.

***COMMERCIAL BREAK***


We come back and the ring is set up for The VIP Lounge. MVP is in the ring along with Elijah Burke & Layla, with all of them dressed in smart casual clothing. MVP says that for the first time ever tonight, The VIP Lounge comes to you live on Monday night on Raw. The fans don’t seem impressed, but he tells them that this is a special edition because not only is it on Raw for the first time, but his guest tonight comes from right here, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The crowd cheer as he then introduces his guest, Y2J Chris Jericho. The crowd goes crazy as “Break Down The Walls” blasts out inside the arena with a casually dressed Chris Jericho walks down to the ring with a slight smile on his face due to the reaction from the crowd. He gets in to the ring looking a little low key as he picks up the microphone. MVP welcomes him but says he can’t help but notice that Jericho looks somewhat down in the dumps tonight and tells him that he should be on top of the world, being chosen to be the special guest on The VIP Lounge, and despite the fact Winnipeg is a hole, he should be happy to come home.

Jericho cuts in straight away and says that MVP’s right, he’s not happy tonight and it’s not just because he’s found himself in some pathetic low budget Starbucks in a wrestling ring or because he’s in the ring with a power ranger, his groupie and his ho. The crowd cheer and he says aside from Captain Ranger talking trash about his hometown, the one thing he came here tonight for was to get his hands on Bobby Lashley. MVP cuts in and says he did his research and he couldn’t help but notice that Lashley has made Jericho look more like the first ever undisputed ass clown as Jericho would put it, rather than the first undisputed champion. Jericho doesn’t look happy and asks MVP if this show is all about finding out how quick it takes to him getting a microphone shoved down his throat. MVP laughs it off and says Jericho doesn’t want any of him, then asks him if he can’t beat Lashley, what chance does he think he has of beating him and let alone winning the Money in the Bank at Wrestlemania.

Jericho thinks about turning his back on MVP, but then he turns back and says that since he’s in his hometown and that he’s not getting his hands on Lashley tonight, how about MVP cuts the crap and clears all the crap out of the ring and puts his money where his mouth is. MVP laughs and turns to Burke & Layla who smirk back at him, and just as MVP lifts the microphone to his mouth, “Turn Up The Treble” hits with Mr. Kennedy walking out to the top of the stage with a big grin on his face. He looks down to the ring and says that he’s not sure but he asks MVP just if he’s a Raw or Smackdown superstar. MVP says that Kennedy has no reason to be out here and he doesn’t need to explain himself to Kennedy, but Kennedy responds by saying that there’s plenty of superstars in the back MVP could jump, but maybe he’s had second thoughts after Rey Mysterio kicked his ass week last week. The fans cheer Kennedy, and MVP looks pissed and shouts back, saying that was a fluke and that he beat Rey on Smackdown Friday night.

Burke walks over to an irate MVP and grabs the microphone of him. He looks up at Kennedy and tells him he hasn’t forgotten what he did last week after they won their match, but Kennedy cuts in and says there’s one prize they’ve all got in their sights, and that’s the same prize he won last year, Money in the Bank. He says that he’ll go through anyone and everyone to win it for the second time and that there is no one who can stop him, but if Burke wants to find out what he’s up against, Kennedy says he hasn’t got a problem marching down there and stomping all over his ass. Burke tells him to bring it right now with Kennedy dropping the microphone and immediately walking down the ramp, only for Eric Bischoff to appear on the tron. He tells them to stop right there. He then says that he has an idea in mind and that there will be a match tonight, but it’s not happening just yet. He says that tonight Winnipeg will see Y2J Chris Jericho compete tonight, and he will compete in a triple threat match against MVP & Mr. Kennedy. The crowd cheer as they all look at each other with Burke looking pissed.

The Colon Brother’s & Eric Perez are in the hallway getting drinks from the vending machine. Carlito says that last week, beating Cody and Kofi was very cool, they showed those two punks who the real playas are round here. Eddie says that’s right and they won’t be messing with The Colons again as he bends down to get his drink as it drops, and as he stands back up, something catches his eye. He tells Carlito to look who it is, with the camera zooming out to show Cody Rhodes walking past. He stops and looks ready to fight, but Carlito tells him they don’t want any trouble, then says they did what they had to last week. Cody gets a little angry and says they know they didn’t win fair, but Carlito cuts in and tells Cody that’s not what he has to worry about, asking him where Ho Ho is. Cody looks confused and Eddie explains he means Kelly Kelly. Cody gets angry and tells Carlito to watch his mouth, then says she’s with Kofi, not that it’s any of their business. Carlito laughs and replies with Cody’s answer, saying he left Kelly with Kofi and tells Cody that’s not cool. Cody looks confused and less angry, then asks him what he’s talking about. Carlito turns to look at both Eddie & Perez, then asks the big man if he wants to tell Cody the deal. Perez tells Cody that what Carlito is trying to say is that leaving Kofi & Kelly together isn’t the best idea, but Cody just looks confused. Carlito then leaves it a couple of seconds before coolly telling Cody that Kofi’s slipping it to her. Eddie & Perez grin a little as Cody tells them to back off and that they’re out of their minds before storming up the hall. Eddie laughs and tells Carlito that was real funny, then says he kind of feels sorry for Cody. Carlito looks shocked and tells Eddie they’re not their problem anymore, but Eddie says he’s playing and asks them what they drinks they want as the camera fades out as they have a good laugh.

***MATCH #3***

NON TITLE MATCH
Paul London & Brian Kendrick vs. John Morrison & The Miz


ENDING:
London & Miz both make their way back up to their feet. Miz gets up first and runs at London who drop toe holds Miz right down to the mat, face first. Miz rolls over straight away and holds his face as London then stands up and runs in to the ropes, comes back and hit s a RUNNING STANDING SHOOTING STAR PRESS. . . . . A pop comes from the crowd as London reacts quickly to hook Miz’s leg 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . The Miz kicks out comfortably as London takes his time in standing back up and then reaching down to pull Miz back up, but The Miz reacts by driving his fist in to London’s chest. London drops to one knee as a result, giving Miz some time as he is able to stand back up. As soon as Miz is back on his feet, London too stands up and is on the receiving end of a discus punch from The Miz, who then walks over to his corner and makes the tag to John Morrison. The Shaman of Sexy climbs through the ropes to heat from the crowd, but he shrugs it off as he walks over to London and poses for the a couple of seconds before going for THE BREAK DANCE LEG DROP. . . . . Morrison’s in for a shock though as London is able to sit back up, pulling his head off the mat as Morrison hits the mat. London then crawls across to his corner and makes the tag to Kendrick, who comes in to a big pop.

He run over to Morrison as he gets back up and whips him in to the corner, then follows in, connecting with a back flip dropkick. Morrison then walks out of the corner looking a little sore as Kendrick then grabs him by the head and sets him up for THE SLICED BREAD. . . . . With the crowd cheering again, Kendrick runs back in to the corner and walks up the ropes, but Morrison is able to throw him down to the mat. Kendrick looks a little hurt as he lands, and Morrison takes several seconds to get his breath back before running across the ring and knocking London off the apron by driving his knee in to London’s chest. Morrison stands by the ropes and looks down at London with a smile on his face as London’s head hit the apron, but the referee walks over to him and tries to get his attention back on the match. Morrison though, teases climbing through the ropes to the ref’s frustration, allowing The Miz to enter the ring behind the ref’s back as Kendrick stands back up. Miz walks up from behind Kendrick and takes him down with THE MIZARD OF OZ (WRISTLOCK SPINNING REVERSE DDT). . . . . The crowd boo like crazy, and as Morrison sees Miz get back on the apron, he walks over to Kendrick, pulls him up to his feet and plants him with A CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER. . . . . Morrison cockily goes for a cover, just hooking one leg with a big smile on his face 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . 3.



WINNERS: John Morrison & The Miz by pinfall @ 7.41


AFTERMATH: “Ain’t No Make Believe” plays as Morrison is joined in the ring by The Miz, but he has a microphone. The music stops and The Miz says that they just backed up what they said when they came to Raw, they were held back from being the stars of the show on Smackdown, and that they are without a shadow of a doubt, the premiere team on Raw. He says that they weren’t given what they deserved on Smackdown but they just beat the World Tag Team Champions, and soon enough they will be the ones wearing the gold, and Smackdown can just cope with their loss. Their music plays again as Miz arrogantly drops the microphone on the mat before he & Morrison leave the ring.


***CUT BACKSTAGE***


Maria is standing by at the interview set and welcomes her guest, Bobby Lashley. He walks in to the shot and looks quite serious but not angry serious. Maria asks Lashley about last week and why he speared Chris Jericho, and then left him in the ring to lose their tag match. Lashley asks Maria if she has even been watching Raw before last week because Jericho was the one who hit him with a steel chair to cause him to lose a match to Kennedy several weeks back. He then says Jericho has come out every week and made fun of him, saying he has no personality, and Lashley then says that everyone accepts that from Jericho, but because Bobby Lashley stands up for himself once, he’s all of a sudden called the bad guy. He says that he goes about his business each week, turning up and getting the job done in the ring, but says that’s clearly not enough anymore. Maria asks him what she means with Lashley saying that Jericho got what he deserved last week and if people think he did the wrong thing, then that’s fine because all he wants to do is do what he does best in that ring without loud mouths like Jericho, Kennedy and MVP who are all talk but no action. He says that he does his talking in the ring like it should be done, and if that means standing up for himself like last week, then that’s what he’ll do because he wants the Money in the Bank just as much as everyone else, and that he’s going to do everything in his power to make sure he gets it. Maria thanks Bobby as he then walks out of the shot looking more serious than before.

***MATCH #4***

Cody Rhodes w/Kelly & Kofi Kingston vs. Lance Cade

ENDING:
Cade whips Cody in to the ropes, but as Cody runs back, he ducks under an outstretched arm from Cade and runs through. Coming back off the next set of ropes, he runs at Cade and hits A DIVING CROSS BODY. . . . . Cade falls back with Cody on top of him and holding on for a cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . Cade powers out, lifting Cody off of him, but Cody reacts quickly by standing back up and running in to the ropes behind Cade as he gets up. And as Cody comes back, he takes Cade down with a bulldog. The crowd cheer for the youngster as he turns Cade over and goes for another cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . Cade gets a shoulder up, leaving Cody looking disappointed as he pulls himself back up to his knees. He then takes his time as he stands back up with Cade also coming round. Cody stands up and grabs Cade by the head as he stands up, and then looks to be going for The Bionic Elbow. Cade blocks it though and quickly kicks Cody in the gut before pulling Cody’s head under his arm and then lifting him vertically up in the air before bringing him crashing down to the mat with a suplex. Kelly & Kofi look worried on the outside as they try to get the fans to encourage by Cody by clapping.

Cade stands up and grins as he sees Kelly panicking. He walks over to the ropes and looks down at her to talk a little smack, but Kofi backs her up by standing up on the apron. Cade holds his hands up to play the innocent and then turns round, but he quickly turns back and punches Kofi right in the face, knocking him down to the floor. Kelly looks concerned as Kofi lands on the floor and bends down to check on him while Cade grins at what his actions. As he turns round though, Cody is getting back up, and as Cade walks over, Cody reacts with a punch to the chest and then follows up with a combination of right hands, eventually knocking Cade down. But as Cody reaches down to pull Cade up, he sees Kelly & Kofi on the outside, and he looks curious and walks over to the ropes to look at what’s going on. Kelly looks up and just gestures that he’s checking on Kofi and that Cody should get back to his match. Cody doesn’t seem to know what to do and is unaware that Cade is getting back up. And as Cody turns back round, he sees Cade on his feet and runs at him, but Cade reacts by hitting him with a VICIOUS LARIAT. . . . . He turned Cody inside out and then goes for the cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . 3.



WINNER: Lance Cade by pinfall @ 5.18


AFTERMATH: Cade’s music hits to heat from the crowd as he stands up and gets his arm raised. He leaves the ring as Cody starts to come round as Kelly still checks on Kofi and not looking at Cody. Cody sits up and looks a little surprised as he sees Kelly still tending to Kofi. The camera zooms in on Cody’s eyes as the comments from The Colon’s seem to be replaying in his head.

Chris Jericho vs. Mr. Kennedy vs. MVP w/Elijah Burke & Layla

ENDING:
MVP & Jericho get back up after a double clothesline while Kennedy remains on the mat. The Franchise Player goes for an irish whip, but it’s reversed by Jericho in to a short arm clothesline, and then follows up by kicking MVP in the gut. Y2J then runs back in to the ropes, runs back behind MVP and takes him down face first to the mat with a ONE ARM BULLDOG. . . . . The crowd cheer as Jericho stands back up with MVP also rolling over on to his back. Jericho looks down and gets that look in his eye with a smile too as he looks in to the crowd and then runs in to the ropes, hitting a springboard for THE LIONSAULT. . . . . The crowd go nuts, but just as Jericho goes for a cover, Layla climbs on up the apron, distracting Jericho and the referee. Jericho walks over to the ropes, along with the ref following behind, who tells Layla to get down, but as Jericho stares at Layla, Kennedy approaches from behind and clubs Y2J across the back. He then pulls him away from the ropes slightly and positions Jericho’s head under his arm before nailing him with a REVERSE DDT. . . . . Kennedy tries to the finish the match there and then by going for a cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . Jericho puts his foot on the rope to Kennedy’s frustration. The Green Bay Native stares at the referee for several seconds before standing up, still looking frustrated as he drags Jericho away from the ropes and then walks over to the corner and climbs up to the rope for THE GREEN BAY PLUNGE. . . . . Before he can jump off, Elijah Burke runs round on the outside and reaches up, grabbing Kennedy’s foot.

Kennedy tries to push him off, but Burke lets go leaving Kennedy pissed with him then stepping down from the top rope and jumping down to the arena floor. He then chases after Burke as The Guiding Light races around the ring to try and keep away from Kennedy, and as Kennedy gains on him, Burke stops dead by the steps. Kennedy runs at him, but can’t stop himself as Burke trips him on to the steel steps, hitting them face first. Kennedy slumps by the steps as he remains on the arena floor. Back in the ring, Jericho & MVP both make their way back up to their feet with MVP looking groggy, giving Jericho the advantage as he grabs MVP by the legs and sweeps him down to the mat. From there, he holds on to MVP’s legs and turns him on to his back, locking in THE WALLS OF JERICHO. . . . . The crowd go crazy as Jericho applies the pressure to the half man, half amazing superstar as MVP tries to fight it, but Layla is straight back up on the apron, catching the attention of the referee with Jericho only just applying the hold. The ref walks over and tells Layla to get down, but she argues with him, allowing Burke on the other side of the ring to slip inside. He runs at Jericho and drives his boot in to his face with Jericho just falling back and letting the hold go. Burke then helps MVP up to his feet before leaving the ring with The Franchise Player pulling Jericho back up as Layla drops down off the apron and the ref turns round. MVP then sets Jericho up and plants him with THE PLAYMAKER. . . . . Jericho looks out of it as MVP hooks both legs as the ref makes the count 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . 3.



WINNER: MVP by pinfall @ 8.40


AFTERMATH: “I’m Comin” hits as MVP stands back up and gets his arm raised. Burke joins him in the ring, but as the ref tries to raise MVP’s hand, The Franchise Player pulls his arm back and pushes the ref to the side and starts stomping on Jericho. Burke joins in too as they give Jericho a real beating until Rey Mysterio runs down the ramp at full speed and slides under the bottom rope. Burke sees him and runs at him, but Rey nails him with a couple of right hands and then takes him down with a hard forearm shot. MVP turns away from Jericho and runs at Rey, but Rey drop toe holds him on to the second rope. The crowd go crazy as Rey dials up and then runs back in to the ropes, but as he charges across the ring, Burke is back up and he plants Rey with a Spinning Sit Down Spinebuster. Burke then walks over to MVP and pulls him away from the ropes and helps him back up. They then watch on as Jericho starts to sit up, with MVP’s eyes then lighting up as he then runs at Jericho and nails him with The Drive By Kick. He stands back up and high fives Burke as Layla then gets in the ring and joins in the celebrations.

***CUT TO THE ARENA***



“No Chance in Hell” hits as a very serious looking Vince McMahon & JBL walk in to the arena. They walk down the ramp and in to the ring looking very angry to a lot of heat from the crowd. The music cuts as they stand there in wait, and after five seconds, “Line in the Sand” plays to a huge pop, but there is no sign of Batista or Ric Flair, leaving Vince & JBL confused in the ring. We then see the tron switch from Evolution’s video to showing Triple H with a six pack of Fosters in hand, standing in the hallway, next to The McMahon’s locker room door. He looks in to the camera and says that since Shane was watching the match all alone tonight, he thought he’d keep him company. He then knocks on the door and calls out Shane’s name, but there’s no response. Vince & JBL look curious as to what’s going on, but Triple H says it’s weird Shane’s not answering and says he’s sure Shane won’t mind if he just barges in, which he does. As the door opens, we see Batista & Ric Flair standing over Shane McMahon as he lies out cold on the floor by a leather sofa. The crowd go crazy as Vince & JBL look real pissed and start to walk up the ramp.

Triple H says jokingly to Batista that they started without him. Batista tells Triple H they haven’t and he that he has the beers, then Flair tells Dave he meant Shane. Batista does his best to act like he didn’t know what Triple H meant, and The Game says that it looks like Shane’s not going to be much company and then says that he’s just going to leave the beers there for his dad and bastard brother. Evolution then smile as they leave the room with Flair asking them where they want to eat. They walk towards the exit to the building when we hear the voices of JBL & Vince. Vince shouts at them, asking them just what the hell they think they’re doing, and Triple H replies by saying they’re just going to get something to eat, and asks them to join them. Vince & JBL stare angrily at them before JBL tells them they’re going to pay, but Triple H says that’s good because he’s not got his wallet. Vince shakes his head before JBL drags him in to the locker room to check on Shane. The camera zooms in on Evolution and Batista says that he thinks that went pretty well, but Triple H says he could have done with a beer as they then turn round and leave the building laughing.

***THE MAIN EVENT***

NON TITLE MATCH
Randy Orton vs. Kane


ENDING:
Kane pulls a stirring Orton back up to his feet and hits him with an uppercut thrust, knocking the WWE Champion off balance before following up with another one. With Orton looking unsteady, Kane grabs him by the arm and whips him in to the ropes, and as Orton comes back, Kane lifts him up and connects with a SIDEWALK SLAM. . . . . Orton lands hard on his back and Kane looks to wrap the match up by going for a cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . Orton just gets his shoulder up and looks to be suffering as he squirms around on the mat while Kane stands right back up and then drags Orton back up to his feet too. He whips Orton in to the corner and then runs in at him, but The Legend Killer lifts his boot up in to Kane’s face. It causes Kane to turn round and stagger out of the corner, and Orton takes full advantage by charging at Kane from behind and chop blocking him down to the mat, catching him on the back of the knee. Kane falls to the mat, and Orton then seizes the opportunity and stamps on the back of Kane’s knee five times. With Kane now lying on his chest, Orton stands over his back and tries to lock in his new submission hold, and he does it, he gets Kane in to THE CAMEL CLUTCH. . . . . Orton pulls hard and tries to make Kane tap as the monster fights it. Kane lifts his right arm in the air, and after a good ten seconds, he starts to drag himself off centre of the ring and towards the ropes with Orton trying desperately to stop him, but he can’t as Kane gets closer and closer to within touching distance and then reaching out to grab the bottom rope.

Mike Chioda tells Orton to release the hold, but he only does so at the count of 4. Orton looks pissed as he stands back up and looks in to the crowd with them jeering him, but he soon steps back and drops to the mat in a press up like position, stalking Kane for THE RKO. . . . . Kane uses the ropes to help himself back up and then turns round as Orton leaps up to hit the RKO, but Kane pushes him away and then steps away from the ropes as Orton then runs back at him with Kane lifting his boot up and driving it down Orton’s throat. The WWE Champion falls to the mat as Kane limps back over towards him and raises his right hand up in the air. With Orton slowly making his way back up, Kane moves closer towards him, and as Orton gets back up and turns round, Kane grabs him by the throat, setting him up for THE CHOKESLAM. . . . . The crowd cheers, but Orton strikes quickly, kicking Kane on the knee, forcing him to release the hold. Kane drops to his knees as Orton backs up in to the corner, trying to get away from The Big Red Machine. But as he rests against the pads, Orton senses something and then takes a couple of seconds before racing out of the corner towards Kane, then swinging his boot for THE RUNNING PUNT. . . . . Kane pulls his head back and stands back up as Orton stops dead and turns round with Kane then scooping him up on to his shoulder. The crowd mostly cheer as Kane tries to get Orton in to position for THE TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER. . . . . Orton fights it though and is quick to slip down Kane’s back before low blowing him. Chioda sees it and calls for the bell.



WINNER: Kane by DQ @ 8.52


AFTERMATH: Orton crawls towards the ropes slowly and slips under the bottom rope, but he’s unaware that Kane is getting right back up as he goes to collect his belt. Kane walks over to the ropes and climbs over the top rope to jump down to the floor. Orton turns and sees Kane coming, then instead of grabbing his belt, he shoves the timekeeper out of his chair and grabs the steel chair. As Kane walks behind him, Orton turns and smashes the chair across his skull. Kane is knocked off balance but doesn’t go down. Orton looks stunned for a second before smashing him again across the head, but again Kane doesn’t go down despite being unsteady. The Legend Killer then steps to the side of Kane and swings the chair right in to the side of Kane’s head, knocking him down to the floor this time. As Kane lands on his back, Orton pummels him with shots to the chest with the chair. After just over five shots, the WWE Champion stops and lets go of the chair to stare down at Kane who is motionless. Orton then grabs his title and raises it above his head before walking round to the ramp as he turns back to the face the ring. He is in for a shock as Kane sits up, then stands up and glares at a stunned Orton as the show comes to a close.

I haven't stopped by this thread in a while, but I noticed what you did with FCW, and I must say, I think I'm going to steal it from you. I skimmed through RAW and it looks fantastic, dude. Didn't realize you had that many matches for 'Mania already. If I didn't before, congrats to you for the accolades you've gotten the past 2 months as voted by your peers. Keep it up, man and I'll definatley still be checking this thread out (I just won't say anything...)

Default Re: WWE: A Strong Response

D-K-L's Raw Review

The opening promo was good, Orton was in character and him complaining about his treatment is something that a heel would do. Bischoff coming down was good and I liked what he had to say, you are really making him a strong character which is great. Kane coming down was interesting and I was expcting a brawl, but Orton running away was the right thing to do to show his fear once again. Wow, Orton versus Kane tonight!? Didn't expect that at all, I suppose it won't spoil the 'Mania event and the match should be great. Good start to the show with the focus on Raw's 'Mania title match, just how it should be.

The pre match promo from Santino was funny, loved the line about Canada having some fun for once. Him saying "Canadia" was funny too, just the sort of thing that he would do. Melina firing the shirt to the top of the stage to decide his opponent was a bit silly, but its Santino so it works fine. I knew it would be JTG too.

The actual match itself seemed pretty good and I am glad that Santino has picked up a singles win. Santino winning with a roll up suits his gimmick and with this gimmick he can't really wrestle that well, plus it mean JTG doesn't look too bad. Good decision too by having JTG distracted by Melina on the apron, I think we all would be.

This was a good promo, once again showing how strong Eric Bischoff is as the GM and showing how frustrated the McMahon's are now that they aren't in charge for once. All seemed in character and you had EB stick up for himself, and EB allowing Vince to choose which son to face HHH was good.

Nice win for Natalya here, and with them knocking McCool over backstage a few weeks ago there was a little hype. There was only going to be one winner here and you ended it in the right way by Natalya using the sharpshooter. The aftermath was good, Natalya kinda lost all her momentum after her win, but it wasn't really about here. Victoria is looking strong now.

Great interview from CM Punk here, he is really shining in his heel role in your BTB. Colt Cabana alongside Punk is certainly interesting, I didn't expect him to be introduced like this but I like the partnership. CM Punk's line about whats needed in this buisness was awesome. Bischoff is a busy man again isn't he? Anyway, a very well written interview.

Where is the "big things popping, little things stopping" line Nige? Anyway I love MVP promos so I am glad to see the V.I.P Lounge tonight. The promo was great, I like how you played on Y2J being the hometown hero, but MVP's "Undisputed Ass Clown" line was hilarious. Good set up for the match later, and once again I like how you are building up to the MITB this year.

This next segment was funny, the Colons are causing a bit of trouble with these comments but I think it would be funny to see them telling Cody. There will be nothing going on at all, but this could lead to a split with Rhodes and Kofi.

The tag match seemed like a very good match, kinda reminds me of the great matches MNM had with Londrick on Smackdown a couple of years ago with the Miz instead of Mercury. I really don't like the name of Miz's finisher tbh but it doesn't matter what I think. The Miz and Morrison needed this win to make a big impact on their Raw debut, and this should lead to a good feud with a match at 'Mania.

The Lashley interview was pretty good, and I liked how he said he does his talking in the ring, as becuase he isn't a great talker it is a good thing for him to say. Short and sweet really, keeping up his tough image heading into 'Mania and adding more hype to his problems with Y2J.

Good win for Cade here, and you are developing Cade as a singles wrestler while developing this new jelousy angle, good booking. You think of some real good ideas mate, this ended in just the perfect way. kelly checking on Kofi and Cody is now a bit suspicious after what the Colons said. I felt that lariat too and it was a good, quick move to end the match, but I do love Cade's sit-down spinebuster move so i hope you use that in the future.

Good match again, the MITB participants seem to be stealing the show recently with top matches. It flowed well again and the ending was great again as Y2J doesn't look too weak but MVP picks up the big win. The aftermath was great again and MVP and Burke look strong which is great. I expect to see Burke and MVP vs. Y2J and Rey next week.

The next segment was great. As frustrating as cancelling matches can be, you are really making the 'Mania match more anticipated and that is what really matters. The seg was just great, funny too which was good, I loved the Triple H line at the end too in response to Vince saying he is going to pay. I think they might just pay though next week.

The main event was great, you ended it the right way by ending it with a DQ too. Yes, someone has finally taken out Kane! The chair shots from Orton were good and I can just imagine that happening. Orton has made a statement. Woah!? Kane sits up!! Brilliant ending, just when I thought someone had taken Kane out finally! Kane looks so strong at the moment and it looks like nobody can stop him, which just shows the quality of your booking.

Overall Nige it was a fantastic show, very entertaining again with good promos and matches. Nothing I didn't like really. Good job mate.

Smackdown Preview
14th March 2008


Marine Mainland Arena
Buffalo, New York





HBK & EDGE FIGHT IT OUT

Last week we saw a preview of Wrestlemania’s Smackdown main event when Shawn Michaels & Edge went face to face last week. They were involved in tag team action when Edge joined forces with MVP to take on Rey Mysterio & the World Heavyweight Champion. In what was a very personal main event, it got very heated between the two men who will compete for the World Championship, resulting in The Heartbreak Kid & The Rated R Superstar fighting all the way to the back. With just over two weeks to go until they go head to head, just how personal can it get?

THE DEAD MAN STUNS UMAGA
The Samoan Bulldozer was in for the shock of his life last week, but it had to be anticipated after receiving a warning the week before. Umaga didn’t waste any time in venting his frustration at The Undertaker after being chokeslammed through the announce table at Saturday Night’s Main Event. Just six days later in fact, Umaga brutally attacked the dead man, putting the phenom on the shelf for a month. However, last week, we heard from The Undertaker, and he delivered a chilling message to The Samoan Savage by revealing that they will meet at Wrestlemania in a Last Man Standing match. Will we find out this week how Umaga has taken the news? And can we expect to hear, or even see The Undertaker on Friday night?

SHELTON TO GET SHOT AT THE GOLD
Shelton Benjamin has made it his mission to get in to the head of Matt Hardy, and last week his mission was complete when he was given the chance to truly earn the title of The Gold Standard. Benjamin overcame Matt’s close friend, Shannon Moore and after an altercation with Hardy, he was subsequently given a shot at Matt’s United States Championship at Wrestlemania by William Regal. Now that he has what he wants, will Shelton relent, or will he and Matt continue in the heated fashion we are used to?

MVP HEADING BACK HOME WITH A BIG WIN
It’s been a very up and down couple of weeks for Smackdown’s MVP, but last Friday night saw him overwrite what he called a fluke defeat four days earlier by beating Rey Mysterio. This past Monday night on Raw, Smackdown’s Money in the Bank hope went back to the red brand and made one big statement by mocking Chris Jericho in his hometown of Winnipeg. He did more than that in fact by overcoming not just Jericho, but Mr. Kennedy in a triple threat match, albeit in controversial fashion with Elijah Burke coming to his friend’s aid. Will MVP’s streak continue when he returns to his own brand?

IT’S ALL CRUMBLING DOWN ON THE CHAMP
Getting involved with Edge & Michael Shane sure has affected the Cruiserweight Champion, Kenny Dykstra over the last month. The cocky champion looked cool as ice before being sucked in by Edge, but that brought a lot of unforeseen stress due to Shane’s intentions to the belt Dykstra has held since the Survivor Series. With Shane seemingly costing Dykstra matches deliberately, they were forced to unite as one last week by taking on Chavo Guerrero & Matt Sydal, two more men who have made their intentions towards the Cruiserweight Championship crystal clear. However, Dykstra & Shane were unable to get along yet again, and this resulted in another defeat for Dykstra, even though it was Shane who lost the match. The duo were seen being pulled apart by officials later on in the evening, but have they calmed down in time for this coming week? And how much has a victory done for Chavo & Sydal’s title hopes?

FINLAY STANDING TALL
In an eagerly anticipated clash last Friday night, Finlay was able to overcome his bitter rival, Chris Harris in a No Holds Barred, albeit down to help from Hornswoggle. Just as it looked Harris would pull out his biggest victory to date, Hornswoggle came to the rescue at the right time to cause the distraction that allowed Finlay to drive his trusted shillelagh in to Harris’s skull to win the fiercely contested match. Have we seen the last of these two going at each other as William Regal intended?

THE CHAMPS TAKE A BITE AT THE PITBULLS TITLE CHANGE
The Pitbulls sure have tried to gain any opportunity they can to get the upper hand on the WWE Tag Team Champions, Paul Burchill & Harry Smith, but The UK Pack struck back last week when Burchill defeated Kid Kash in one on one action. With the two teams set to meet for the gold at Wrestlemania, there isn’t much time left for Noble & Kash to make another impression on the champions. Are we going to see a quick reaction from the challengers, or has their challenge faded?

THE MASTERS ARE AT IT AGAIN
Charlie Haas & Chris Masters certainly have showed us a different side of their character in recent weeks with their deplorable actions towards Tazz. Not content with injuring his leg after a heinous attack several weeks back, they repeated the attack a week later after defeating Tazz’s good friends, Tommy Dreamer & Stevie Richards, ensuring Tazz suffered a broken leg. Even after being given a stern warning last week by William Regal, Masters used a weapon to overcome Dreamer when they met head on in singles action. Will The Masters of the Mat be put in their place this coming week, or will they continue to act of their own accord?

PLUS
We will also find out who will join this year’s Hall of Fame class alongside Owen Hart, “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase, Ric Flair & Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat. Make sure you find out which of your choices will be added to this worthy bunch of legends Friday night.



On a side note, the WWE have today terminated the contracts of developmental talents James Curtis, Tyrone Evans & Mike Mondo. We wish them the best of luck in their future endeavours.

Hey mate sorry that i did not find time to review your Raw hopefully i will be able to review your Smackdown once it is posted.

Preview looks good man i really like how you put a lot of detail in your previews not everyone does that but you do it well and it attracts me to your BTB more. I am not going to name what i am interested in in your preview and what i do not really care about because i like everything that is happening in this BTB and i can not wait for the next show and i am even more excited about Wrestlemania.
