“Line in the Sand”
blasts out to a huge pop as a very well dressed Evolution make their way down to the ring. Once inside, Triple H collects a microphone and says that time is running out for The McMahon Men, they have just six days before the biggest war in the history of Wrestlemania. He says that after The McMahon’s pulled another fast one last week, they made their task this Sunday a lot more difficult because the last thing they want to do is anger Evolution, but then says he has a simple message for Vince and his two bastard sons. He says that at Wrestlemania, there is nowhere to hide, there will be no blocking people in locker rooms, no sneaking through the crowd as it will be just six men beating the crap out of each other to the point they can’t fight anymore. The crowd cheer as Triple H stares intensely in to the camera with an intense Batista & Ric Flair standing behind him, but they receive a shock as “Voices” hits and Randy Orton, the WWE Champion walks down to the ring and gets a lot of heat from the crowd.

He has a microphone already and says that no one cares about Evolution anymore for one reason and one reason only, the breakout star of the group is the top dog right now, the man who has proved himself like he will even further at Wrestlemania by retaining his WWE Championship. With the fans booing and Evolution staring angrily at him, Orton then says that he has a real problem to deal with, saying that thanks to Eric Bischoff failing to control his locker room last week, he is being threatened with legal action by the security firm that had John Cena and Kane run riot on last week. He says that he wants them punished as well as having Bischoff admit that he is to blame to get the attorney’s off his back, saying he doesn’t need any extra pressure on his shoulders going in to one of the biggest matches of his life this Sunday night. With Orton looking stressed, Triple H then tells Orton to stop acting like a brat and to stand up and be a man for change, saying he wasn’t taught in Evolution to be a whiney little bitch.

Orton smirks and says that he saw Triple H bitch and moan when he was World Champion, then says that right now, he is the man on Raw, the very definition and meaning of Raw and that without The Legend Killer, there would be no show. Triple H smiles and says that since The McMahon’s aren’t here, maybe we can find out if there would be a show without Randy by putting him in his place right now. Orton smirks this time and says that they’re not going to do a damn thing, saying that there’s not a set between all three of them. Triple H drops his microphone as Evolution then circle Orton, unsettling him. It looks like he’s in danger, just as “I’m Back” plays as Eric Bischoff walks out to the stage and shouts that he’s not having his main event stars killing each other six days before Wrestlemania. Evolution back off as Bischoff then says that Orton brought on all the trouble last week just like he has tonight, telling Orton he has to be responsible for his own actions.

Bischoff then tells an angry Orton as well as Evolution that just because they’re not going to fight now, it doesn’t mean they won’t be in action tonight because he has a very special challenge for Randy Orton and his challengers as well as the Money in the Bank competitors. He says that Orton, John Cena & Kane will all have triple threat preparation matches against two men from the Money in the Bank ladder match, also giving them the chance to prepare for Wrestlemania. Bischoff then turns to Evolution and says that he saw The McMahon’s pull a fast one again last week, then says that tonight, there won’t be a repeat as he is going to don a referee shirt for a match everyone wants to see, JBL versus Triple H. A big pop breaks out as Triple H smiles, as do Batista & Flair with Bischoff then saying that he’s not going to stand for any kind of crap tonight, and that if anyone dares step out of line tonight, he will personally deal with them. “I’m Back” hits again as Bischoff then stares down at Orton & Evolution.



***COMMERCIAL BREAK***


Rey Mysterio
is getting ready in his locker room, putting his elbow pads on when Chris Jericho walks in to a pop from the arena. Rey looks concerned as Jericho walks up to him and tells him that he just found out that Rey will be in the ring with Lashley tonight and says he came to warn him. He tells Rey that it’s no secret they all want to win the Money in the Bank match in six days at Wrestlemania, but says to Rey that he needs to watch Lashley. He says that Lashley makes out that he’s a nice guy, but says that he’s dangerous and clever, then warns him to watch his back because Lashley might have another motive in their match later on. Rey stays cool and tells Jericho that he’s known Lashley a long time and says that there’s nothing to worry about, then thanks Jericho for the advice but says everything’s under control. Jericho holds his hands up and tells Rey that he can’t say he didn’t warn him before wishing him luck tonight because he thinks he’ll need it. Y2J then walks away as Rey watches on, but Jericho walks back in to the shot and says to Rey that this Sunday, he’ll need more than luck, he’ll need a miracle because there’s only person who’s going to be climbing up the ladder and collecting the briefcase, and that’s Y2J, Chris Jericho. There’s a tense exchange of looks before Jericho turns around and leaves the room.


***CUT TO THE ARENA***


“Slam Smack”
hits as The Pitbulls make their way down to the ring to heat from the arena. Jamie Noble collects a microphone and says that they’re sick and tired of the two pretty boys talkin smack for weeks and weeks, but says they’ve got a wake up call for the two little girls. He says that the reason they left Smackdown was because of The Pitbulls, saying they beat Morrison & Miz to the number one contenders spot ahead of them. Kash then takes the microphone and says that Morrison & Miz are full of crap, and right now they’re gonna beat that crap out of them like they did on Smackdown before the two cry babies ran over to hide on Raw. It doesn’t take long before “Ain’t No Make Believe” plays and John Morrison & The Miz walk out to the stage. The Miz has a microphone and says that this is Raw, not trailer town, then tells The Pitbulls that their win was a fluke. He then says that they should think back to last Friday and remember that it was The Shaman of Sexy, John Morrison who beat Noble and one of each of the champions. Morrison then takes the stick from Miz and says that Sunday night will be a historic night for him and The Miz, but tonight will be a reality check for The Brokeback Boys. Noble & Kash looked pissed in the ring and gesture for Morrison & Miz to come down to the ring, which of course they do.


***THE OPENING MATCH***

John Morrison & The Miz vs. The Pitbulls

ENDING:
The Miz reverses a whip from a groggy Noble and ducks his head, and as Noble comes back, he kicks Miz square in the head. Miz’s head snaps back up and Noble takes full advantage by lifting him up and hitting a SITOUT SUPLEX SLAM. . . . . Instead of going for the cover, the still groggy Noble stands back up and walks over to his corner, making the tag to Kid Kash. The Notorious K I D storms the ring and does try for a cover, hooking Miz’s leg as the ref makes the count 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . Morrison enters the ring and breaks up the count with a stamp to the back of Kash’s head. The ref gets Morrison out of the ring as a furious Noble shouts across at him. It takes both Kash & Miz a while to get back up, and as they do, Kash blocks a right hand from The Chick Magnet and hits him with an uppercut, then tries to lift him up for a suplex. The Miz though is able to slip down Kash’s shoulder and spins him round before nailing him with a discus punch. The Miz looks happy with that and starts to reach down and pull Kash back up when he sees Paul London & Brian Kendrick walk out to the top of the stage with their World Tag Team titles on their shoulders. Miz gets distracted by this and lets go of Kash, who just drops to his knees, looking to have recovered as Miz walks over to the ropes and directs some smack towards the champions at the top of the ramp. Unaware to Miz, Kash approaches behind him and then rolls him up in to a schoolboy, holding on to the tights and ropes for the cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . 3.


AFTERMATH: “Slam Smack” hits as Kash slides under the bottom rope to join Noble at the bottom of the ramp. Morrison slides in the ring as Miz sits up in horror while London & Kendrick stare down tentatively at both teams.


WINNER: The Pitbulls by pinfall @ 5.49

***MATCH #2***

Victoria & Michelle McCool vs. Beth Phoenix & Natalya Neidhart

ENDING:
Victoria is pulled up by Natalya and is able to block a right hand, then pushes her away. Natalya then regains her composure and walks back across to Victoria who explodes out of nowhere with a SAVOTE KICK. . . . . A big pop rings out from the crowd as Natalya falls to the mat, but so does the tired Victoria. Both of them take a while to come round before they start to crawl towards their respective corners. McCool & Phoenix race in to the ring and towards each other as McCool ducks an outstretched arm from The Glamazon and then punches her as she turns round before turning back to run the ropes. As she comes back, she hits Beth with a clothesline, but it isn’t enough to knock the champion off her feet. McCool tries again as she turns back and runs the ropes, but as she comes back, The Glamazon nails her with a double axe handle shot to the chest, sending McCool crashing to the mat. Beth then reaches down, pulls her back up to her feet and then lifts her in to the air for a GORILLA PRESS DROP. . . . . Beth just casually drops McCool who lands in a motionless heap on the mat, just as Victoria stands back up fully on the apron. Beth sees it and runs across to knock her off by driving her knee in to the mid section of Victoria. She then walks back over to the motionless McCool and lifts her up to her feet before planting her with THE FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX (DELAYED CRADLE SUPLEX). . . . . The ref makes the count with Phoenix holding on for a cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . 3.


AFTERMATH: “Glamazon” hits as Beth scarpers from the ring with Victoria trying desperately to get at her. Natalya grabs Beth as she gets to the outside and then walks round to grab her title belt frantically. She holds it close to her chest as Victoria watches on, not taking her eyes off a delighted Natalya and relieved Phoenix. Slowly the champ and Natalya walk round to the ramp, but Victoria’s eyes remain locked on them as they back up the ramp.


WINNER: Beth Phoenix & Natalya Neidhart by pinfall @ 5.36


***CUT BACKSTAGE***


MVP & Elijah Burke with Layla walk out of a locker room door and in to the hallway, then walk down the hall towards the curtain area when they spot Mr. Kennedy stretching. They stop with Kennedy noticing them and standing up straight with a disapproving look. Kennedy looks at them both and says to Burke that there’s still some of his face left on his (Kennedy’s) boot from last week, and asks if he wants his back. Burke flips, but MVP puts his arm across Burke’s chest and then tells Kennedy that he’ll be eating the playa’s boot tonight and that he’s gonna put Kennedy out of Wrestlemania and Money in the Bank. Kennedy’s not fazed and tells MVP that they’re big words from a big mouth but a small brain. He tells MVP & Burke that he won Money in the Bank last year and that he’ll do it again like that, clicking his fingers, then barges past the angry duo. They both look pissed and Burke tells MVP to make sure he kicks Kennedy’s ass tonight, with MVP promising to kick Kennedy’s face off before saying he’ll catch Burke & Layla later on and walking off. Layla then tells Burke to worry about himself and not MVP. Burke says that he’s ready and he knows it’s one man for himself, then says that Sunday night, he’ll be the man alright, the man with the briefcase. Layla smiles and hugs Burke, calling him her man and saying she knows he can win it. The camera zooms in on Burke’s focused face before fading away.

***MATCH #3***

John Cena vs. Mr. Kennedy vs. MVP

ENDING:
Cena & Kennedy both get back up to their feet with MVP still down beside the ropes. Cena grabs Kennedy by the shoulder from behind and spins him round, but Kennedy rakes him in the eyes and takes Cena down straight away with one hell of a SNAP DDT. . . . . The crowd are in shock as Kennedy frantically hooks both of Cena’s legs for a cover attempt 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . SHOULDER UP FROM CENA. . . . . Cena bravely fights the pain to get his shoulder up to the shock of Kennedy who sits up and looks stunned. He rushes to his feet and walks over to the corner where he climbs to the top rope, looking for THE KENTON BOMB. . . . . Just as it looks like Cena’s in trouble, MVP stands up by the ropes and shakes them, resulting in Kennedy falling off the top and down to the mat face first. The Franchise Player smiles before walking over to Kennedy and pulling him up to his feet, whipping him in to the opposite corner. Kennedy crashes back first in to the pads as MVP takes a couple of seconds before charging across at him and going for THE PLAYA’S BOOT. . . . . Kennedy sidesteps it as MVP runs through in to the pads and slumps against the pads. He turns round looking in a bad way in the corner as Kennedy then backs up to the opposite corner before running back and connecting with a little FACEWASH. . . . .

A pop meets that as MVP just falls in a heap with Kennedy then dragging him away from the ropes and going for a cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . MVP kicks out, but Kennedy gives himself a short breather before standing back up and pulling MVP up to his feet. The Franchise Player shocks him by blocking a right hand and hitting one of his own before taking Kennedy down with a short arm clothesline. MVP looks down for a split second before looking in to the crowd as the fans boo him. He turns to another side of the arena and lifts his hands up, then gestures to say he’s had enough and leaves the ring. Kennedy gets back up and looks up in shock as he sees MVP back tracking up the ramp, then starts directing smack in MVP’s direction. MVP smiles as he sees Cena standing up behind Kennedy, and then he gestures for Kennedy to turn around, which he does. He sees Cena and panics, running towards him with Cena ducking his head as Kennedy runs through and stops dead. As he turns round, Cena lifts Kennedy up in to the air and plants him with the F U. . . . . A big pop breaks out with some boos as Cena then turns Kennedy over and locks in the STFU. . . . . Kennedy desperately tries to fight the hold as MVP watches on with a smile on his face. Cena looks incredibly determined to make Kennedy and tap, and after a good fight, Kennedy gives in and taps.



AFTERMATH: “My Time is Now” blasts out to a big pop from the crowd. Cena stands back up and gets his arm raised by the referee before walking over to the corner and posing for the fans, standing on the second rope.


WINNER: John Cena by pinfall @ 6.42


***CUT BACKSTAGE***


The McMahon’s are stood facing us in their locker room, all looking very serious. Vince says that they caught Evolution’s message earlier on and says that they know the serious business starts now. He says that he and his two sons are ready to fight and that over the course of ten years, they have fought the biggest names and athletes that have dared stand in their way, and that they are not scared of any challenge, including Evolution. He says that they stand as one family together, three of the richest, intelligent and toughest men in the world who will rid the world of the human waste that is Evolution. JBL then says that along with his family, he is not just prepared for battle tonight and at Wrestlemania, but prepared to bleed and put his very existence on the line in the one battle that matters most. He stops and stares right in to the camera, along with Vince & Shane to say that at Wrestlemania, The McMahon Men will do whatever it takes to prevail at all costs, and that they are ready for whatever is thrown at them because they will emerge through adversity and stand proud as not just victors, but as the most powerful family in the world. Shane & Vince smile as the camera then fades out.


***COMMERCIAL BREAK***


***MATCH #4***

Chris Jericho vs. Elijah Burke w/Layla vs. Kane w/Paul Bearer

ENDING:
Kane meets an enthusiastic Jericho who tries for an irish whip, but it’s reversed by The Big Red Monster as Burke comes round on the outside. Jericho flies back off the ropes, but runs right in to a big boot from Kane, who then walks over to the corner and climbs to the top rope. As Jericho slowly stands back up and turns round, Kane leaps off the top for a FLYING CLOTHESLINE. . . . . . Jericho sees it coming at the last second and rolls through to the ropes as Kane crash lands on the mat. As Jericho then stands up by the ropes, Burke slips back in the ring under the bottom rope and charges across at Jericho and clotheslines him over the top rope to the outside. Burke smiles and laughs at the sight of Jericho on his ass while Layla enjoys it too, but that quickly changes as Burke turns round to be greeted by Kane. The Big Red Machine nails him with an uppercut thrust and follows up with an irish whip, and as Burke comes back off the ropes, Kane grabs him by the waist, lifts him up off the mat and connects with one hell of a SIDEWALK SLAM. . . . . Paul Bearer shows his appreciation on the outside as Kane then makes his way back up to his feet with Burke squirming on the mat. Kane lies in wait and lifts his right arm up in to the air as Burke slowly makes his way back up to his feet, and as he then turns round in to his opponent, Kane grabs him around the throat and nails him with a CHOKESLAM. . . . . Layla looks on in horror as Burke hits the mat, but she then sees Jericho getting up close by. She walks over to him and gets in his ass face, making Jericho giggle, which doesn’t go down well with Layla as she slaps him right across the face at the same time as on the inside of the ring, Kane pulls Burke up and then scoops him on to his shoulder and plants him with a TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER. . . . . Kane crosses Burke’s arm for the cover as Jericho then sees the danger and rushes to make the save while the ref makes the count 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . 3.


AFTERMATH: “Burned” hits as Jericho gets in the ring too late. Kane stands up and sees Jericho standing there, but Y2J isn’t intimidated as he runs right at Kane and knocks him off balance with a forearm shot. Jericho tries again as he runs back in to the ropes, but as he comes back this time, Kane grabs him across the throat and plants him with a chokeslam. The Big Red Machine then sets his pyro off as his father applauds on the outside.


WINNER: Kane by pinfall @ 6.11


***COMMERCIAL BREAK***


“This Fire Burns”
hits as the Intercontinental Champion, CM Punk walks down to the ring along with Colt Cabana & Sunny. They are booed loudly by the crowd, but Punk revels in it as he collects a microphone. He says that Sunday night is drawing closer and closer, and that Sunday is the realisation, the day of judgment, the day of reckoning for one Jeff Hardy. He then says that he’s been criticized for his comments about Jeff Hardy, but says that everything he has said has been nothing short of the truth, and that all you can do in life is tell the truth. With boos ringing out, he says that at the end of the day, he can go home and be satisfied with himself because he is being honest. He then says that Jeff Hardy has to live with the fact that he’s a user and a cheat, then ponders what satisfaction Jeff can get from that. He moves on to say that Jeff shows disrespect to everyone who calls themselves a wrestler just by walking through the entrance to the arena because he wants to make out that he’s a wrestler when he’s not. He calls Jeff a fraud and a stunt man for cheap pops, then says the real wrestler holds the gold, tapping the title belt as it lies on his shoulder.

Looking very smug, Punk says that Jeff has never come out on top against him and never will, just like Punk has never quit in his life and won’t this Sunday where he says he will make Jeff admit all his sins as well as making him quit. He then says that if Jeff doesn’t see sense, he will beat Jeff to the point that he won’t know where he’s at, just like when Jeff’s at his happiest, smoking pot. He says maybe Jeff will like that, but that he’s going to beat Jeff within an inch of his life, but then “No More Words” plays as a pissed off Jeff Hardy walks down to the ring. He grabs the microphone from Punk and says that he admits he’s made mistakes in his life, but says they’re in the past. He then says that if Punk wants to talk about Wrestlemania, then that’s fine. He says that no one has ever pushed him like Punk has, and that Sunday night, there will be a price to pay that will cost Punk the title he stole away from him at the Royal Rumble, along with that tramp Sunny. She doesn’t like that, but Punk & Cabana cool her down with Punk lifting his title belt up in the air.

Punk then grabs the microphone back with his other hand and says that the gold is staying where it is, saying it’s out of reach for Jeff. He then says Jeff is powerless, just like when he’s ploughed all the crap in to his body over the years, taking over his body and emotions, calling Jeff weak and an embarrassment to all his blind followers. He then says that he’s going to put Jeff and his pathetic fans out of their misery and make him suffer like any abuser should. Jeff loses it and smashes Punk in the face with a right hand. Jeff fights for his life as Cabana joins in to help Punk, with the both of them throwing punches at Jeff, forcing him against the ropes as Sunny shouts out in appreciation. With Jeff forced against the ropes, we then see Eugene race down the aisle to his aid. He grabs Cabana by the feet and pulls him under the bottom rope. Punk looks shocked and yells down at Eugene as Eric Bischoff’s nephew slugs it out with Cabana, resulting in Eugene whipping Cabana in to the ringpost as Jeff fights back against a stunned Punk.

Jeff hammers Punk away from the ropes, then kicks him in the gut before running in to the corner and exploding with a Whisper in the Wind. The crowd go nuts, but as Jeff gets up, he’s greeted by Sunny as she yells right in his face. Eugene enters the ring behind her with the crowd cheering as he then taps her on the shoulder. She turns round with Eugene then forcing himself on her, kissing her as a huge pop breaks out. Punk stands up and looks horrified, but Jeff spins him round and nails him with the Twist of Fate. The fans are going crazy, as is Eugene who lets go of Sunny as Jeff then bends down and picks up the title belt he was screwed out of at the Rumble. He looks at it for several seconds while Sunny rubs her mouth frantically as she kneels down on the mat while Eugene claps his hands over and over. Jeff drops the belt on Punk’s chest and picks up the microphone to say that at Wrestlemania, he’s not the one going to quit and he will take back his title. “No More Words” hits again and Jeff leaves the ring along with Eugene.



***CUT BACKSTAGE***


Todd Grisham is standing by and introduces his guest to us, Randy Orton. The WWE Champion walks in to the shot to heat from the arena with Grisham asking him how he feels about John Cena & Kane picking up impressive wins already tonight. Orton says tonight is just like Sunday, it doesn’t matter what either John Cena or Kane does, it’s all about what Randy Orton does. The fact of the matter is his performance tonight and at Wrestlemania is going to speak louder than words when he beats whoever the hell’s been put in his way tonight and when he steamrolls both his challengers Sunday night. Grisham looks quite impressed with the confidence and asks Orton if he is ready to come good on his promise and make John Cena or Kane tap out this Sunday like he said several weeks ago. The Legend Killer says people laughed when he said that, but it’s nearly time to find out who the laughing stock is. He says he will come good on his promise to make one of them tap this weekend and vows to make someone tap tonight, saying none of them have a choice, they will tap out to The Orton Clutch. He then says that Cena & Kane should watch his match tonight just so they can realise that this Sunday will just be another landmark in the career and title reign of Randy Orton, because no one can stop the one man dynasty, no one. He finishes by saying that he guarantees victory tonight and more importantly at Wrestlemania, promising to walk out as still the WWE Champion. He looks serious in to the camera for a couple of seconds before turning to look at Grisham and then walking out of the shot.

***MATCH #5***

Triple H w/Batista & Ric Flair vs. JBL w/Vince & Shane McMahon

ENDING:
Both men make their way back up to their feet after a double clothesline, and it’s JBL who reacts first as he hits Triple H with a couple of vicious right hands before sizing up for one more. The Game blocks it though and grabs JBL by the wrist to whip him in to the ropes, and as he comes back off the ropes, Triple H nails him with a high knee strike to a huge roar from the crowd. JBL gets right back up though, but Triple H is right on him as he shifts behind him and connects with a FALLING NECKBREAKER. . . . . Again the crowd get right behind Triple H, who this time goes for a cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . Boos meet JBL’s kick out, but The Game stands back up and throws his arms above his head, prompting Shane McMahon to hop up on to the apron in panic. Eric Bischoff sees Shane and tells him to get down, giving Triple H the hint to turn round. He walks over and laughs in Shane’s face before nailing him with a right hand, sending him right off the apron. Vince then gets up on the apron and yells at The Game, clearly angry that he just clocked his son, but Triple H walks casually over to his father-in-law, smiling right in his face, seeming to be enjoying the opportunity to punch Vince McMahon. Before he can though, JBL walks up behind him and clubs him across the back. He then turns The Game round and whips him in to the ropes, and as Triple H comes back, JBL catches him and sends him flying overhead with a FALLAWAY SLAM. . . . .

As Shane comes round, Vince claps his illegitimate son as he tries for a cover on Triple H with Bischoff making the count 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . JBL doesn’t look happy as he stares at Bischoff, who just signifies that it was only a two count. With Batista & Flair nervously looking on, JBL stands back up and seems to be stalking The Game for the CLOTHESLINE FROM WALL STREET. . . . . Slowly but surely, Triple H makes his way back up to a vertical base, and as JBL comes off the ropes, Triple H ducks under an outstretched arm. JBL is able to stop himself dead and turn round, but Trips stomps him in the gut and sets him up for THE PEDIGREE. . . . . Vince panics on the outside and grabs a steel chair from next to Lilian, then slides it in the ring towards JBL before hopping up on the apron. The Game looses it and rushes over to Vince, as does Bischoff, and also Flair & Batista on the outside. Bischoff screams at Vince to get down as JBL grabs hold of the chair and stands back up. Batista pulls Vince off the apron, and Flair strikes him with a right hand. Bischoff looks down at Vince for a couple of seconds while Triple H turns round and walks out in to JBL who SWINGS THE CHAIR AT TRIPLE H. . . . . The Game stomps JBL in the chest before the chair can hit him, resulting in JBL dropping the chair. Triple H then picks the chair up himself and DRIVES IT IN TO JBL’S SKULL. . . . . Bischoff turns round and sees what happened, leaving him with no choice but to call for the bell.



AFTERMATH: Triple H doesn’t seem to hear the bell as he sizes JBL up for another chair shot. Bischoff walks up behind The Game and grabs him by the shoulder, but thinking it could be Vince or Shane, without looking, Triple H turns round and swings the chair in to Eric Bischoff’s skull. The Game looks in shock as he sees Bischoff collapse to the mat. Shane then enters the ring under the bottom rope and pulls JBL by his feet to the ropes before sliding back under the bottom rope and pulling JBL out the same way. He checks on his dad by the bottom of the ramp as Batista & Flair join a stunned Triple H in the ring. A dazed JBL & Vince stand back up slowly as Evolution then stare right at them while Shane supports them both with a nervous look on his face with the fearsome sight of Evolution staring right through him and his family.


WINNER: JBL by DQ @ 6.09

NON TITLE MATCH
Rey Mysterio vs. Bobby Lashley vs. Randy Orton


ENDING:
With a dusted down John Cena watching on from the announce table, Orton reaches down and pulls Mysterio back up to his feet. He nails him with a European uppercut, knocking him off balance before turning back in to the ropes, but as he comes back, Rey takes a couple of steps back and drop toe holds Orton on to the bottom rope. The crowd go nuts as Rey dials up with Lashley still on the outside. Mysterio runs back in to the ropes, charges towards Orton and swings through the ropes for the 619, but Orton pulls his head back and falls to his knees on the mat. Rey lands on the apron but climbs through the ropes, but Orton races to his feet and hits Rey with an INVERTED HEADLOCK BACK BREAKER. . . . . Orton is quick to try and take advantage as he hooks both legs for a cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . Rey lifts his shoulder up to a huge pop from the crowd, leaving Orton frustrated while Lashley then climbs back in to the ring. He makes his way over to Orton, who doesn’t see him. Lashley grabs Orton by the wrist and whips him in to the ropes, and as Orton comes back, Lashley tosses him overhead with an OVERHEAD BELLY TO BELLY SUPLEX. . . . . A pop meets that slam from Lashley, but he’s not done as he waits patiently as Orton slowly struggles to his feet.

Lashley walks up behind him, grabs him around the waist and sends him flying with a FLIPPING RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX. . . . . Orton looks in trouble as he lands on the mat, right alongside the squirming Mysterio. Both he and Rey struggle to their feet as Lashley stalks Orton for a SPEAR. . . . . As Orton is getting to his feet with Rey, behind him, Lashley then spots his chance to strike and charges at Orton. . . . . BUT THE CHAMPION SIDESTEPS AS LASHLEY THEN SPEARS MYSTERIO INSTEAD. . . . . Lashley looks to have broken Mysterio in half as Orton quickly turns round and sees Lashley starting to sit back up. Orton strikes like a cat, as before Lashley can sit up, Orton charges at him AND PUNTS HIM SQUARE IN THE HEAD. . . . . Lashley is knocked to the mat by the ropes and he rolls under the bottom rope to the outside as Orton drags Rey away from the ropes by his feet. He turns Rey on to his back and applies his version of The Camel Clutch, THE ORTON CLUTCH. . . . . Orton applies so much pressure to an already worn out Mysterio, who puts up one hell of a brave fight, but Orton just looks possessed as he screams out for Rey to tap, which he does.



AFTERMATH: “Voices” hits to heat from the crowd with Micky Henson collecting and then passing Orton his WWE Championship. Armed with a huge grin, Orton walks over to the ropes in front of the announce table and John Cena to raise his title in the air. Cena stands up and throws his headset off and down to the table. Before he can walk over to the ring, “Burned” hits to a mixed reception as Kane makes his way out to the stage along with Paul Bearer. Orton turns his head and sees Kane staring down from the top of the ramp alongside a laughing Paul Bearer. Cena looks concerned as he too looks at Orton & Kane. A very concerned Randy Orton keeps looking both ways with his title in hand at the two men that stand in his way of retaining the WWE Championship this Sunday at Wrestlemania. Raw comes to a close as all three men stare at each other with Orton standing nervously in the ring taking it in turn to look at each challenger.


WINNER: Randy Orton by submission @ 7.27

Hey Nige I know I haven't been replying lately, but I've been reading and as you close in on 'Mania I am extremely pumped. You can expect a full review for your 'Mania, I am glad to see you make it to the big one.

I really like the btbs around here. I've just started up one myself on WCW.

Review of Nige's Raw Show
Opening Segment was a great way to start the show. I like the idea of the guys involved in the championship title match going up against the guys in the MITB match.

Morrison & Miz vs The PitBulls- Fun opener, lots of good action. Like the way how The Pitbulls won. I like the distraction from Londrick causing The Miz to lose. Should be a great tag title match at WrestleMania.

Womens match was really good. Glad Victoria didn't get pinned. Beth and Natalya make a great team. Victoria/Beth is going to be a great womens match.

lol at the ending of Cena/Kennedy/MVP match. Fun 3 way match and MVP watching Kennedy tap out was quite funny.

I enjoyed Match 4. I liked it better than Match 3. Kane looked very strong in that match and the mitb participants also had a good showing in that match.

My fave segment of the show was the Jeff/Punk segment. This is going to be a great match up. The numbers game played up for Jeff and it was nice to see Eugene making the save. I think Punk will retain but this is so close to call.

HHH/JBL was a good match, i liked the ending. I hope Evolution go over The McMahons at WrestleMania.

OMG Macho Man in the HOF haha, love this induction. This seems like it would never happen but I'm glad to see it happen in your btb. Oooooooooh Yeah

The Main Event was really good. Orton using a submission hold to win is a really good idea. I hope he retains the belt at WrestleMania. You've actually made the 3 guys involved in the title match look very strong heading into the ppv.

Overall a solid slow with top matches and great segments. THE HOF inductees list is a fantastic list. I also like the WrestleMania card, looking forward to WrestleMania.

RAW REVIEW
BY SC2004.


- THE LAST RAW BEFORE WM. EXCITING!

- Extremely solid, well thought out opening segment. I wish Triple H didn’t do so much of the talking, but in recap form I guess it’s okay. The main goal here was to hype WrestleMania and you did that,, with both Triple H and Orton referring their respective matches and claiming that they’re the biggest matches of their careers. The Bischoff interruption came just in time for Orton and it worked very well. I like the idea of the triple threat matches with the MITB ladder match participants involved and I’m also feeling the JBL, HHH match up with Bischoff as the special referee. Everyone was in character here and you managed to set the tone for the night brilliantly.

- Nice interaction backstage between Rey and Jericho that not only placed added importance on tonight’s Triple threat matches, but also on the MITB ladder match at Mania. Interesting to see Jericho looking out for Rey, yet also informing Rey that there is no way he can win at mania. It’s that two faced edge Jericho always seems to have about him that makes him such an interesting character.

- Nice swerve finish in the opening match with Kash using the ropes and tights to pick up the pinfall victory. Nothing wrong here at all and both teams walked out looking strong.

- The champion looked Beth Phoenix looked strong here but so did the challenger Victoria, which is great going into their match up in six days time. Nice to see Michelle doing the job as she is the lest talented diva of the four women in the ring.

- Very nice segment here with Burke, Kennedy and MVP. High drama and a lot of tension between Burke, MVP and the always antagonising Mr Kennedy. Got to give you props. The MITB ladder match is often an after though for bookers, yet you’ve placed great importance on it and have numerous feuds tied up within the actual match which is very clever and proves how good a booker you actually are.

- Nice finish to the first of the triple threat matches. You’ve got to love MVP, the dude played it cool and showed that he is a smart guy, letting Kennedy fall victim to the STFU and allowing Cena to pick up the win. Kennedy loosing to Cena is no big deal as Cena is one of the top guys. This match allowed MVP to gain heat, Kennedy takes the fall, looks okay and Cena appears strong going into the title match. Job well done.

- A very dramatic, serious backstage promo involving the McMahon men. I see something big happening at mania with Vince pulling a trick or two out of the bag. There is no way in hell these three men don’t have a backup plan going into Mania.

- Logically Kane had to win this triple threat match, with Cena walking out victorious. The way you sold Jericho here, being fearless, makes me think he s the man to beat at mania and I predict he’ll win MITB. Another great match up with a logical, effective finish.

- It would have been so easy for you to overlook the Intercontinental championship match up going into WrestleMania with so much else going on tonight, but you didn’t and it’s great to see you give Punk and Jeff so much air time to get their match over at Mania. The segment was great with Punk running down Jeff for his past mistakes. Jeff logically comes out and defends himself. Cabana and Punk double team Jeff with Eugene making the save. The kiss was a nice touch also. Great job here.

- I guess you’re aloud this DQ finish in the JBL, HHH match as you’ve given us a pinfall finish in all the other matches tonight. I’m glad you didn’t let this match go on last. I guess an experienced booker knows a champion goes on last and also that the finish would of pissed the fans off big time. Let me think, HHH accidentally takes out Eric, resulting in Eric screwing Evolution at mania??? Who knows, but it sure makes things even more interesting heading into the big one.

- Solid main event. I hate Rey Mysterio and his stupid kiddie mask, so seeing him tap out was awesome. The match up itself made Orton look great, but the aftermath reminded us that he is in big trouble at Mania. Also by having both Orton and Cena look concerned when Kane and Paul came out, made Kane look the strongest, even though I think Orton will retain at Mania.

OVERALL: Another solid show. I won’t repeat myself as I’ve said enough in the initial review. Can’t wait for WrestleMania. Great Job as always dude.

D-K-L's Raw Review

Six days until Wrestlemania!! Can't wait!!

This was another very good promo to kick off the show. I was expecting Orton to kick off the show after last week but Evolution opening the show is cool as well. I liked what Triple H had to say but we were just waiting for an interuption really. Wow I didn't expect Orton to come down at all, would've thought you would have the McMahon's come down again but I guess the two teams have talked enough. Orton coming down was very interesting with the history between Orton and the others and I liked the confrontation between the Orton and an Evolotion. There was never going to be a brawl really as Orton would be destroyed, so having Bischoff coming down was a good decision. He's been coming down a lot lately and showing his authority which is good with all the big characters on Raw and he did the same here. I really like the three triple threat matches idea but its just three showcase matches for Kane, Cena and Orton really. Triple H vs JBL is great too and Bischoff as ref is even better. Good promo.

This was a decent little promo here. This did a good job of hyping the MITB even more and the tension between the two would be cool to see. Lashley may be dangerous but I don't know about clever lol. The last line from Y2J was great.

The pre match promo was pretty good and it showed us the problems between the two teams from Smackdown, hilarious opening line from Morrison btw. The match itself seemed like a good match, I was expecting Miz and Morrison to pick up the win as they have looked strong recently. Good win for the Pitbulls though and with the distraction it means that Miz and Morrison don't lose too much credibility.

Good win for Phoenix and Natalya again here, they are looking very strong at the moment. The match was well written and you saved the big face off between Phoenix and Victoria for Sunday which is good, and Phoenix picked up the win over the right person. Nice little build for the women's title match.

Again this was a decent little promo to hype the MITB match further. There are three very arrogant guys in this promo so there was bound to be some problems and there was, Kennedy's line about some of Burke's face being on his boot was funny. I hope what Burke said about winning at Mania is true, but I like most of the guys in the MITB anyway. Burke is great though and Layla is hot, and I like the two a lot so it would be good if Burke won.

This was a good little match here and a big win for John Cena. The match flowed very well and it was exciting to read, not sure if I liked MVP walking out again though especially after taking control over Kennedy. I guess it allowed a bit of a distraction which gives Kennedy a bit of an excuse for losing though. Good win for Cena and he looks strong now heading into Wrestlemania.

Good promo from the McMahon's, we needed to hear from them really ahead of JBL's match with Triple H. Just what you expect from the McMahon's really, I liked what they had to say and it would come off really well with them looking into the camera. Good intense promo.

This was another good triple threat match with some exciting action. Kane had to win this one but you didn't have him totally dominate the match which is good. I was expecting Burke to take the fall but Kane is a top guy so it doesn't hurt him. Good win for Kane here and the Mania title match participants are looking strong.

Now this was a great promo. What Punk had to say was great and I found myself agreeing with what he had to say. Jeff coming out was cool and he seemed in character too by saying his mistakes are in the past and all that, but the brawl was great to end the promo. Eugene making the save was a good decision although I don't like the guy and havign Hardy take out Punk was the right decision heading into Wrestlemania as it makes him look like a real threat. Great promo and it really gets us pumped for the IC title match as this is such an intense and personal feud.

Very good interview with Randy Orton. He was in character and he was his usual arrogant self here by saying it doesn't matter that Kane and Cena won.

Wow I didn't expect that at all! Triple H hitting Eric Bischoff with the chair is a great decison and it adds so much more interest to this feud so close to Wrestlemania. I was expecting Bischoff just to keep order in this match and I didn't think he would get involved in any way, so you fooled me with your booking. The match was good and the DQ ending works in this situation. You may be teasing a Bischoff turn at Wrestlemania now but I'm not sure it will happen really. I am looking forward to the McMahon's against Evolution even more now.

The main event was great, it flowed really well again and it was exciting to read. You threw in some great moves too like the flipping release German, I love that move. Orton was always going to win this but Lashley had his time in control which was good, but the spear on Mysterio after Orton moved would come off really well. It was a good set up for the punt to the head as well and it was a good way to take Lashley out of the match. As much as I love the RKO I can see why you are having Orton use the clutch. Good ending to a good match. The aftermath was great and I liked how you had it end in a stare down between the three men rather than a brawl.

Overall Nige it was another great show, really entertaining as usual and the storylines are fantastic. I am looking forward to Smackdown now and then the big one! Good job mate.

***2 DAYS UNTIL WRESTLEMANIA***


UMAGA RUNS RIOT AS THE CHAMP WATCHES ON

We found out last week from Edge, that Shawn Michaels had suffered a concussion due to the con-chair-to the week before. The challenger for the Michaels’ World Heavyweight Championship this weekend at Wrestlemania was revelling in his satisfaction at taking out Michaels the week before, but he didn’t count on The Heartbreak Kid making an appearance. They went back and forth verbally about their title clash this Sunday night at The Citrus Bowl until Edge decided to try and push Michaels’ buttons to provoke an attack. However, it didn’t work as William Regal gave Edge one massive challenge in the shape of The Undertaker. The dead man had only returned from an injury the week before picked up following an assault from his Wrestlemania opponent, Umaga. The Samoan Bulldozer was far from happy with The Undertaker returning seven days earlier and attacking him out of the blue, and it showed. Just when it looked like Edge was in real danger, Umaga came to the rescue, attacking the phenom yet again, but it wasn’t just the dead man that suffered at the hands of The Samoan Savage as Edge felt the effects of The Samoan Spike as Shawn Michaels stood close by.

With just two days to go until Wrestlemania, what condition and mood will Michaels, Edge & The Undertaker be in?


MONEY IN THE BANK STARS COMING TO SMACKDOWN
It’s crystal clear that all the Money in the Bank contenders are struggling to get along with such a huge prize lying in wait for just one of them. This past Monday night, Raw Head of Authority, Eric Bischoff gave them a challenge by putting them in triple threat matches against the three men who will battle it out for the WWE Championship in two nights time. First up were Smackdown’s only Money in the Bank contender, MVP and last year’s winner, Mr. Kennedy as they challenged John Cena. MVP has shown in recent times that he’s not averse to walking out on matches, and it happened again on Monday as he left an angry Kennedy to battle Cena alone. Chris Jericho & Elijah Burke were up next with the difficult task of taking on the Royal Rumble winner, Kane. They were unable to co exist and Kane overcame Burke while Jericho was busy earning himself a slap from Burke’s girlfriend, Layla. Finally it was two men who we thought could get along as Bobby Lashley & Rey Mysterio met the WWE Champion, Randy Orton. Lashley & Rey had a slight altercation the week before, and they had a bit more this past week as Lashley speared Mysterio, albeit by accident, allowing Orton to pick up a much needed victory going in to his massive title defence this Sunday.

We have been told that all 5 of Raw’s Money in the Bank superstars will be at Smackdown on Friday night. Just how much more can they self destruct as they go in search of a shot at a world title?


MATT IS STABBED IN THE BACK
Last week saw the contract signing for the now, very personal United States Championship between Matt Hardy & Shelton Benjamin. Matt was more than happy just to enter the ring and sign his name to the contract, but his challenger wanted to do a lot more than that. Talking down to Matt again, Shelton seemed to get under the champion’s skin, forcing Matt to hand his title over to his life long friend, Shannon Moore. Shelton sucked Matt in, allowing Shannon the chance to stab Matt in the back, smashing Matt in the skull with his own title belt. He was joined by Shelton in putting the boots to Matt until they were stopped by William Regal.

It’s all but certain that Matt will be looking for revenge when Smackdown rolls in to Rosemount. The question is, will he get it?


SMACKDOWN STARS WIN ON RED SOIL AGAIN
For the past two weeks on Raw, Smackdown representatives in the fatal fourway double championship match at Wrestlemania have overcome Raw’s superstars. Last week it was the WWE Tag Team Champions, The UK Pack defeating Raw’s World Tag Team Champions of Paul London & Brian Kendrick, and this Monday night just gone, The Pitbulls defeated their fellow challengers for this Sunday, John Morrison & The Miz. Raw’s Morrison did win a fatal fourway last week against one member of each team, but what can we expect the teams to get up to on their final stop before Wrestlemania this weekend?

JUST DAYS UNTIL DYKSTRA’S BIGGEST TEST
If Kenny Dykstra was supposed to be under pressure, he certainly didn’t show it last week as he stumbled upon Chavo Guerrero as well as Matt Sydal, who had just overcome Michael Shane in a very entertaining and close contest. Dykstra made it clear that he wasn’t going to give his Cruiserweight Championship up without a fight when the four men meet Sunday night in Orlando. Chavo tried to unsettle the champion by telling him he didn’t have to lose the match himself to lose the title, but it didn’t seem to work.

Was Dykstra playing it cool, or does he really feel he will retain with ease at The Citrus Bowl in two nights time?


MASTERS OF THE SUSPENSION
After weeks of pushing boundaries, Charlie Haas & Chris Masters finally pushed their luck too far last Friday night. It was nearly two weeks ago since they lost to Tommy Dreamer & Stevie Richards in a hardcore match, and we found out just how angry they were to lose when they made their presence felt last week. After attacking Stevie and then distracting Dreamer long enough to cost him his match with Finlay, The Masters of the Mat struck back for the loss the week before by driving Dreamer through a table. What they didn’t count on was a meeting with William Regal moments after, and they certainly didn’t consider the possibility that they might be suspended, but that was what happened. Regal told the duo that they would be suspended until the draft show this coming Monday night.

Have Haas & Masters learnt their lesson following the suspension? What will it be like this Friday without them running riot?


DRAFT JUST AROUND THE CORNER
It’s not just Wrestlemania that is rapidly approaching, but less than 24 hours later, we will bare witness to the annual WWE Draft. Every single member of both rosters including General Managers, announcers, commentators and interviewees face the possibility of moving shows.

Whatever you do, don’t miss this last stop before Wrestlemania and the draft!



The preview's up a day sooner because i'll be in Manchester tomorrow night. The show won't be posted until Monday night as per usual with my new schedule.

“Promenade”
hits as William Regal walks down to the ring, looking very serious indeed. He apologies for the slightly unconventional start to the show, but says that he has decided to beat anybody else who tries to jump the gun, walk out here and say how unfair everything is. He says that he is taking control tonight to make sure that Wrestlemania goes to plan after everything that happened last week, saying that he suspended two superstars last week and is open to repeating the punishment if need be. He says that he has put a water tight plan in place for tonight to make sure everything runs smoothly going in to Wrestlemania and announces that he has made no fewer than six very important matches to get everyone including the fans ready for Wrestlemania. The fans like that, and Regal says that he knows a lot of people are very interested in just who will be able to reach up and collect a certain valuable contract, also known as something called Money in the Bank. A pop breaks out and Regal tells them that tonight in this very ring, the six men will also compete against each other in a six man tag team match, getting a bigger pop. He says that he’s only just getting started and that the four men who will compete for the Cruiserweight Championship this Sunday will be in action, with Matt Sydal & Chavo Guerrero going one on one while Michael Shane will take on the current champion, Kenny Dykstra. He says that he’s looking forward to seeing those two finally meet in the squared circle before moving on to the tag team title situation. He reminds us that both the Smackdown & Raw tag team titles will be on the line in the same match at Wrestlemania, and that one of the champions could walk out of Wrestlemania with both titles.

He says he’s very proud that for the last two weeks, that his two Smackdown representatives have beaten Raw representatives on Raw. He then announces that they will all have a part to play tonight when Harry Smith, one half of the WWE Tag Team Champions takes on The Miz with the remaining competitors for this Sunday’s match playing the part of lumberjacks. The crowd seem to like that, but he turns more serious as he brings up the contract signing for the United States Championship last week when Shannon Moore turned on Matt Hardy, hitting him in the head with the title belt. He then says that he’s spoken to Matt this week, and has agreed that right here tonight, it will be Matt Hardy versus Shannon Moore. Another pop breaks out, but Regal then says that he has been left with one very big decision after the actions of Umaga last week and Edge the week before. He reminds us that Edge gave Shawn Michaels a concussion last week following a con-chair-to, and that Umaga attacked The Undertaker during the dead man’s match with Edge last Friday. Regal says that he has gone back and forth on the best piece of action, and has decided to go against his better judgment tonight to make Shawn Michaels compete just 48 hours before his World Heavyweight Championship defence against Edge. The crowd boo, but Regal says that it’s not all doom and gloom as Michaels will not be competing alone, he will be joining forces with The Undertaker to take on Umaga & Edge. A huge cheer breaks out as Regal thanks them for their attention before passing the microphone to Justin Roberts and then leaving the ring with the camera following him up the ramp and all the way to the back.

MVP, Elijah Burke & Layla are sitting down in the locker room with Burke & Layla looking very serious indeed. MVP asks him if he’s okay, saying he’s been quiet all day when Mr. Kennedy storms in to the room. Kennedy asks MVP just what the hell he thought he was doing walking out of their match on Monday night, then says “scrap that” to himself and says he knows full well, calling MVP a coward. MVP looks pissed, but doesn’t have time to respond as Kennedy carries on, telling him that there’s nowhere to run Sunday night at Wrestlemania. He tells MVP that he’s been through Money in the Bank before and that there’s no room for cowards, before saying that he won the match last year and that he’s going to do it again this Sunday. He kneels down right in a livid MVP’s face and tells him that he can’t win by running away, saying Money in the Bank isn’t a coward’s game, and that tonight, he better watch his damn back. Kennedy smirks slightly in MVP’s face before standing up, turning round and walking out of the door, slamming it shut. MVP turns to Burke and asks him who Kennedy thinks he is, talking to the highest paid star on Smackdown like that. He says that if anyone deserves that Money in the Bank contract, it’s him, then says Kennedy ain’t nothing and that he’s gonna get up in his face Sunday, then take what’s gonna make MVP not just the highest paid superstar, but the top star in the business. He takes a short pause before saying Kennedy and no one else is going to stop him, seemingly hitting a nerve with Burke, who stands up not looking too happy. He tells MVP that he’s forgetting someone, and says that he’s fed up of being overlooked by not just MVP, but everyone. He says that he’s in the match too Sunday, and that if MVP is all that, maybe he can do it without him tonight for a change. Burke tells Layla to come with him as they leave the room with MVP looking shocked before saying that if it’s like that, he’ll show them all why he’s half man, half amazing, soon to be Mr. Money in the Bank baby. He grins a little as the camera fades out.

Michael Shane’s music hits as he walks down to the ring in his wrestling gear for his match with Kenny Dykstra. Once in the ring, he walks over to the ropes and asks for a microphone. He says to the fans that he knows full well they don’t like him and doesn’t care in the least what they think, but says that they do have one thing in common, they both have a serious problem with king cocky, Kenny Dykstra. He says that he can’t stand Dykstra or his arrogance, but wants to put that right tonight and this Sunday at Wrestlemania where he promises to take Dykstra’s Cruiserweight Championship. He says that he craves the title, and it’s about more than just putting Dykstra in his place, saying it’s long overdue, but he’s the man to shut him up and he’s gonna prove it. Kenny Dykstra’s music then plays as he walks out to the stage with a microphone in hand. He says that he too is looking forward to this match and says to Shane that he’s all mouth, that’s why he agreed to the match, calling it the breeze before the ease that is Sunday night. He says that it doesn’t matter how many men are stood in his way at Wrestlemania, it doesn’t matter because he’ll beat every last one of them without breaking a sweat because he is the only man who can rightly claim to be the definition of perfection. Kenny drops the mic and walks down to the ring as his music starts up again.


***THE OPENING MATCH***

NON TITLE MATCH
Kenny Dykstra
vs. Michael Shane


ENDING:
Kenny reverses a whip from Shane, but as Shane comes back off the ropes, he takes Kenny down with a clothesline. Shane looks down at him, but Kenny isn’t down for long as he stands back up, causing Shane to act. He turns back and runs in to the ropes, but as he comes back, Kenny nails him with a perfect standing dropkick to the face. The Cruiserweight Champion rushes as he over to hook Shane’s legs, trying for a cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . Shane lifts his shoulder up, but Kenny doesn’t look too down in the dumps as he stands back up looking pretty focused as he urges a squirming Shane back up to his feet. Shane doesn’t disappoint as he stands back up with Kenny pouncing straight away, trying for a scoop slam, but Shane drops down straight away and stuns his opponent with a TORNADO DDT. . . . . The crowd are torn as Shane tries to end it there and then by going for a cover as the ref makes the count 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . KICK OUT FROM KENNY. . . . . The champion shows some fight by just getting his shoulder up from that one. Shane stands back up and walks over to the corner, tuning up the band to heat from the crowd as he mimics his cousin, Shawn Michaels. Dykstra starts to sit up with the ref checking on him, concerning Shane who steps slightly out of the corner and then towards Kenny. The clever champ thinks quickly and pushes the ref back in to Shane, knocking both men down to their knees. As Dykstra stands back up, the ref has his back to him, allowing the champ to kick Shane as he stands up. Shane winces in pain as he is about to drop to his knees again, but Kenny reacts quicker than a cat as he grabs Shane by the head and plants him with a ROLLING CUTTER. . . . . Shane lands face first on the mat with Kenny then turning him on to his back and going for the cover, screaming at the ref to make the count, which he does 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . 3.


AFTERMATH: Dykstra’s music hits to heat from the crowd as he walks over to the ropes and climbs to the outside. He walks over and grabs his Cruiserweight Championship before raising it up in the air before walking round to the ramp looking very arrogant as Shane sits up looking groggy and pissed while Dykstra just grins back without a care in the world with his belt raised high in the air.

WINNER: Kenny Dykstra by pinfall @ 5.48

The Miz & John Morrison are walking through the hallway, not looking their usual selves when they come across The Pitbulls. Jamie Noble & Kid Kash can’t help but laugh, with the downbeat Miz & Morrison turning to look at the smug pair of Noble & Kash. Noble says that they sure showed the pretty boys Monday night, just like they said they would. Miz seems to get wound up and says crazy and crazier distracted him, and that’s the only reason they lost to low class crap like them. Noble & Kash don’t seem bothered, and Noble says that it’s not the first time they’ve beaten them and it won’t be the last. He then smiles and says that they’ve even got the chance to beat the tar out of tem tonight, and tells Miz if he runs his mouth some more, they sure won’t have a problem with trampling all over him. Kash agrees and says that The Miz is a joke anyway, setting him off as he tries to get at Kash. Morrison steps between them and holds The Miz back, but The Miz yells at them, saying he’s not a joke and he’ll prove it tonight and at Wrestlemania when he and Morrison win some gold. Noble & Kash laugh and walk down the hall as Morrison lets go of The Miz and tells him to calm down, telling him that two trailer park pieces of trash like them aren’t worth it. Miz stares down the hall, seemingly not listening to Morrison as the camera cuts to the arena.

Chavo Guerrero
vs. Matt Sydal


ENDING:
Sydal gets back up to his feet with Chavo ready to pounce, kicking him in the gut and then turning back to run the ropes, but as Chavo runs back, Sydal connects with a FEINT ENZIGURI IN TO A HEAD SCISSORS TAKE DOWN. . . . . A pop breaks out from the crowd as both men make their way back up to their feet with Sydal throwing a right hand at Chavo and then trying to set him up for THE CYCLORAMA. . . . . Chavo fights the grip with elbows and is able to escape Sydal’s grasp, then quickly kicks him in the stomach and pulling Sydal’s head under his arm. He lifts Sydal up vertically in to the air and falls back, driving Sydal’s head in to the mat with a BRAINBUSTER SUPLEX. . . . . The crowd cheer again, enjoying the action between the two fan favourites as Chavo makes his way back up to his feet and then in to the corner to climb to the top rope. He sees Sydal’s not moving and then points to the ceiling, showing respect to his late Uncle Eddie before leaping off for THE FROG SPLASH. . . . . As Chavo comes down towards the mat, Sydal rolls to the side and in to the corner as Chavo crash lands on the canvas. Sydal uses the ropes to help him up while Chavo turns over clutching his chest, rolling closer to the corner as Sydal then spots an opportunity. He climbs to the top rope and leaps off, connecting with A PERFECTLY EXECUTED SHOOTING STAR PRESS. . . . . That gets a big pop from the fans as Sydal hooks both of Chavo’s legs for dear life as the referee counts the fall 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . 3.


AFTERMATH: Sydal’s music hits, and he stands back up to get his arm raised to a big pop from the crowd. He walks over to the corner and celebrates on the second rope as he poses for his jubilant fans. As he steps down and turns round, Chavo starts to come round, causing Sydal to stop and take notice. He walks up to Chavo and offers him a hand to help him up, and after thinking about it for several seconds, Chavo takes Sydal’s hand and stands back up to shake hands with him before turning round and leaving the ring, not looking too happy as Sydal goes back to posing for the crowd. Chavo turns round half way up the ramp and looks disappointed with himself as he looks down at Sydal, who is unaware as he celebrates his win.

The contract signing for the United States Championship match at Wrestlemania with Shannon Moore surprising Matt Hardy by attacking him with the title belt, then putting the boots to him along with Shelton Benjamin


***CUT BACKSTAGE***


Josh Matthews
is standing by with Shelton Benjamin & Shannon Moore. Josh says that he’ll come to Shelton in a second, but asks Shannon just why he did what he did to Matt Hardy last week. Moore says that Matt treats him like his travel bag, saying that Matt hardly acknowledges him or gives him any kind of thanks for helping him on the road all these years. He says he’s been there for Matt night in night out, and that Matt treats him like a portable psychologist, not a friend. He then says that just like always, Matt gave him his belt to look after last week, but he sent Matt a message right back with the belt, a message that he deserves to be taken seriously and not treated like a second class citizen. He then says that it’s funny really because the United States Championship won’t be in Matt’s possession much longer anyway. He and Shelton both smirk, but Josh looks disgusted. Shelton tells Josh there’s no need to feel sorry for Matt because he got what was coming to him. He then says that last week, he and Shannon did half the job, tonight Shannon will make another statement, leaving him to pick up the pieces and finish Matt Hardy once and for all and take his title this Sunday night at Wrestlemania. He stops for a couple of seconds and says that he wants Matt to hear this loud and clear, he’s making it his mission to make Matt’s worst nightmare come true on the grandest stage of them all for the whole world to see. His facial expression barely changes as he remains deadly serious before the camera fades out.


***CUT BACKSTAGE***


Rey Mysterio & Bobby Lashley are quietly getting ready in the locker room. Rey is putting his elbow pads on while Lashley laces up his boots. There looks to be a lot of tension between them as Rey turns to a focused looking Lashley and says that he knows Lashley didn’t mean to spear him on Monday night. He then says that he just wants to forget about it and get through tonight, then they can think about Sunday and Money in the Bank after. Lashley continues lacing up his boots and just says “fine”. He remains incredibly serious as Rey then asks if he is okay, only for Chris Jericho to walk in to the room with a smile on his face. Jericho takes advantage of the tension and says that he saw what happened Monday night and that Lashley sure as hell ripped Rey in half with that spear. Rey & Lashley look up in disbelief and slight anger at him, with Jericho then calling it a tough room. Lashley goes back to his boots, not taking any interest in Jericho as Y2J then gets a little more serious and says that he too isn’t happy about what’s going down tonight, calling it a recipe for disaster, but says that he knows they can get the job done, and that they should just get this out of way and let whatever happens at Wrestlemania happen. He then says that he knows exactly what will happen, he’ll climb that ladder and collect the all important contract that will take Y2J back to the very top of sports entertainment. Rey shakes his head and stands up to say that he shouldn’t be so sure. He tells Jericho that five other men want it just as much, then says that he main evented Wrestlemania two years ago and won the World Heavyweight Champion. He says that he wants to be in that spot again and that if any of them wants it more than the everyone else, it’s him. Lashley stands up looking very intense and says that if anyone wants to find out just how much he wants it, they’re going to find out the hard way and walks out of the room. Jericho just sni-ggers and says that Lashley hasn’t got the brain to win it, but Rey says that we’ll find out soon and leaves too, leaving Jericho on his own to look a tiny bit smug.

Smith powers out with his legs as The Miz is pushed back and down to the mat. Both men stand back up within seconds with Miz turning round in to Smith, who scoops The Miz up on to his shoulder and walks back in to the corner, seemingly getting ready for THE RUNNING POWERSLAM. . . . . The crowd cheers as Smith runs in to the opposite corner, but before he hits the slam, The Miz drops down of his shoulders and staggers back slightly. Smith turns round as The Miz then runs at him, but Smith sees him coming and helps him over the top rope with a hand across the back of the head. The Miz lands right by Burchill’s feet, and The Pitbulls look to get at him, as do Paul London & Brian Kendrick, but the high flying duo end up brawling with Noble & Kash as an argument breaks out. They brawl against the barricade, and it ends with them fighting through the crowd and to the back while Burchill smirks as The Miz gets up by his feet. With the referee watching the action the outside as Smith takes a breather, John Morrison slips under the bottom rope behind both Smith and the referee. He walks up behind Smith and low blows him before spinning him round and connecting with a CORKSCREW NECKBREAKER. . . . . Burchill forgets about The Miz as he climbs on the apron and tries to tell the ref, but Morrison escapes the ring while The Miz slips back inside with Burchill’s attention diverted. The Miz crawls over and yells at the ref to turn round as he goes for the cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . 3.


AFTERMATH: “Ain’t No Make Believe” hits and Burchill immediately slides in to the ring, but The Miz is able to crawl across to the ropes and escape under the bottom rope before Burchill can get at him. Morrison grabs Miz and supports him as Burchill stares down at them while they laugh back in his face before they shift round to the ramp and then back up it. Smith sits up and holds his head with Burchill checking on him while Morrison & Miz laugh back down at them.

Leticia Cline
is standing by and introduces us to her guest at this time, the World Heavyweight Champion, Shawn Michaels. Michaels is looking fairly laid back as Leticia then asks him just he is feeling and if he is okay to compete tonight following the concussion he suffered at the hands of Edge two weeks ago. Michaels says that he’s feeling okay and that he’s putting everything to one side for now because it’s that special time of year. He says it’s not intentional, it’s just at this time of year, something takes over him, and he believes it to be the show stopper coming out to play. He gets real fired up and says that tonight with a concussion, he could be facing, Edge, Umaga, Big Foot, King Kong all on his own and it would make no difference whatsoever because he’d fight them all and give each of them everything he’s got. He says that there’s no obstacle he wouldn’t take on because that’s what the show stopper is all about, any challenge put in front of him, he will fight it to the death. Leticia then says that Edge has been nothing but calculated over the last few weeks and asks him if he’s prepared for his title defence Sunday night. Michaels says in all seriousness that Edge is a major threat, he’s intelligent, he’s dangerous and he’s ruthless, but says there’s one thing he’s not, and that’s Mr. Wrestlemania. HBK says that Edge might be unbeaten at Wrestlemania, but there’s a reason for that, he’s never jumped in to the ring with the big boys like he is this Sunday. Michaels says that over the last twenty years, he’s set the benchmark for all aspiring superstars with his performance at Wrestlemania, but says he’s going to do the impossible and take it up a notch this year since he’s walking in with a big weight of gold around his waist. He looks to Leticia and then back to the fans to say that he wants the world to know that in two days at the biggest show, he’s going to put on his biggest show and roll out of Orlando, still the World Heavyweight Champion, and that there’s not a damn thing Edge can do about it but lump it.

Edge is shown getting ready in his locker room for his match later on when Armando Alejandro Estrada walks in. Edge asks him what he’s doing here while he’s trying to get ready, but Estrada tells him not to worry. He tells Edge that everything’s under control, and that after last week when Umaga came to his rescue against The Undertaker, he tells him not to worry one bit because Umaga is on his team tonight. Edge turns round and drops his boot he was about to put on. He angrily asks Estrada what he’s talking about, saying he had Taker where he wanted him last week when Umaga selfishly got involved and cost him a huge win against The Undertaker before attacking him too with a Samoan Spike. He looks at Estrada menacingly and says that he’s not going to take that crap from anyone, and that includes Umaga before saying there’s a reason why he’s facing Shawn Michaels for the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania and Umaga’s not. He says that he gave Michaels a concussion all by himself and that he doesn’t need Umaga’s help or his to beat The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels, or both of them all by himself because he is the next World Champion. Estrada doesn’t look intimidated and tells Edge that he should hope that he’s not, because once he’s done ending The Undertaker’s wining streak when he becomes the last man standing at Wrestlemania, The Samoan Bulldozer will be coming for the World Champion whoever it may be, and may be Edge should remember that. Edge looks a little concerned as Estrada then smiles and leaves the room.

Chris Jericho, Rey Mysterio & Bobby Lashley
vs. Mr. Kennedy & MVP


ENDING:
Burke lived up to his words from earlier and no showed, making this a handicap match. Lashley drags Kennedy back up to his feet and nails him with a couple of hard right hands before stomping him in the gut and pulling him in to position for a suplex. As he lifts Kennedy up in to the air, Kennedy slips down Lashley’s back and is able to hit a SIDE RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP. . . . . Kennedy is still hurting and has to crawl across to his corner before trying to tag MVP, but his partner doesn’t reach his hand out. Kennedy stands up and stares at MVP for a couple of seconds before slapping him on the shoulder, effectively making the tag. The referee tells him to get in, which he does, reluctantly. As he climbs through the ropes, he and Kennedy have a little exchange of looks before Kennedy climbs through the ropes and on to the apron. MVP walks over to Lashley as he stands up, but Lashley reacts quickly by ducking a right hand and then grabbing MVP around the waist from behind. With MVP looking a little shocked, Lashley then tosses him behind with a FLIPPING RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX. . . . . MVP lands hard on the mat as Lashley walks back in to his corner and makes the tag to Rey Mysterio, who gets a big pop from the crowd. Rey climbs up to the top rope instead of getting in the ring and leaps down on MVP, hitting a DIVING SPLASH. . . . . Rey hooks the leg as he lands with the ref making the count 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . .

MVP just falls back to the mat as Rey tries for another pin attempt 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . MVP gets his shoulder up in time, but looks very groggy as he comes round with Rey then urging him up. As MVP stands back up, Rey takes a couple of paces back with MVP then running at him, but in to a drop toe hold on to the second rope by Mysterio. The fans are on their feet as Rey dials up. Rey then runs back in to the ropes, comes back and goes for the 619. . . . . MVP pulls his head back as Rey kicks air. MVP gets back up to his feet quickly and pushes Rey off the apron and down to the floor. The Franchise Player then turns back and walks over to his corner and tries to make a tag to Kennedy, who jumps down off the apron to the floor below, leaving MVP pissed. MVP flips and offers Kennedy inside, seemingly for a fight, and Kennedy doesn’t need any excuse as he climbs back up on to the apron and through the ropes. They get right in each others face for several seconds before MVP tries a sneaky punch, but Kennedy sees it coming and plants him with THE MIC CHECK. . . . . A pop breaks out as Kennedy levels his partner and then leaves the ring, leaving MVP to battle it out on his own. Rey gets back up on the apron and looks stunned to see MVP flat out, but takes full advantage by hitting a springboard and DROPS THE DIME ON MVP. . . . . Rey readjust his position and makes the cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . 3.



AFTERMATH: “Booyaka 619” blasts out as Mysterio stands up and gets his arm raised by the referee. Lashley climbs through the ropes and looks at Rey for a couple of seconds with some clear tension before shaking his hand. Jericho then slides back in the ring behind Rey as Lashley turns round. Jericho smirks and walks up behind Rey, then pushes him forward in to the back of Lashley, who turns round with an angry look on his face. He stares at Rey, who turns round and points at Jericho who just denies all knowledge of everything as Lashley then charges at Rey and takes him down with one hell of a spear. Jericho laughs as Lashley stands back up and then stares a hole right through him. Jericho sees the danger and holds his hands up in the air, but Mr. Kennedy runs back down the ramp and stops at the apron to look under the ring. He pulls out a ladder and slides it in the ring to Jericho’s amazement. Jericho points behind Lashley, who turns round and sees Kennedy getting in the ring. Lashley charges at Kennedy, but The Green Bay native hits him across the head with the ladder.

Kennedy & Jericho then stare at each other for several seconds, but Elijah Burke runs down the ramp and grabs Kennedy’s foot from outside the ring. Kennedy turns round and stares down pissed at Burke as Jericho takes advantage by running at Kennedy from behind and clubbing him across the back, forcing him to drop the ladder. Jericho hammers away at Kennedy, then whips him in to the ropes, connecting with a spinning wheel kick as Kennedy comes back. Burke tries to grab the ladder, but Jericho sees it as he stands up and baseball slides into the ladder, driving it in to Burke’s upper chest, knocking him to the floor on the outside. Jericho stands up and sees Kennedy getting up, then picks up the ladder. As Kennedy turns round, Jericho drives the ladder in to Kennedy’s face, knocking him right back down. Jericho smiles as the fans cheer, looking at all five bodies in and outside the ring. He sets the ladder up in the middle of the ring and then climbs to sit at the top with a huge grin on his face.

Shawn Michaels & The Undertaker
vs. Edge & Umaga w/Armando Alejandro Estrada


ENDING:
Umaga reaches down and pulls Taker up to his feet. He levels the dead man with some vicious chops to the chest before whipping him in to the corner. Umaga runs in at Taker straight away, but the dead man steps out of the corner and runs the ropes, comes back as Umaga staggers out and nails The Samoan Bulldozer with a huge boot to the face, knocking him down to the mat. Taker walks in to his corner and makes the tag to Shawn Michaels. HBK looks to take advantage of the situation in front of him by climbing to the top rope and leaping off, nailing Umaga with a DIVING ELBOW DROP. . . . . The fans sure like that as Michaels drives his elbow in to Umaga’s neck. The World Heavyweight Champion tries to wrap the match up by going for a cover 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . Umaga kicks out quite easily, but Michaels isn’t giving in as he stands back up and waits patiently as Umaga gets back up. HBK runs back in to the ropes as Umaga gets up, but as Michaels comes back, Umaga steps forward and plants him with one hell of a SWINGING SIDE SLAM. . . . . Michaels rolls around in agony on the mat as Umaga retreats to his corner and tags in a hungry Edge. The Rated R Superstar can’t get in the ring quick enough as he stamps his feet, urging Michaels up to his feet, stalking him for a SPEAR. . . . .

Slowly, Michaels gets back up, and as he turns round, Edge races out of the corner to hit the finisher, but Michaels reacts quickly and lifts his boot up in to Edge’s face for a SUPER KICK. . . . . The roof nearly blew off as Michaels falls down directly on top of Edge as the referee counts Edge’s shoulders to the mat 1 . . . . . 2 . . . . . Umaga breaks it up with a gentle kick to the back of Michaels’ head. Taker isn’t happy with that as he climbs in to the ring and charges at Umaga, nailing him with a clothesline. Umaga lands against the ropes with Taker then taking him over the top with another hard clothesline. Umaga hits the floor below, but as he starts to stand back up, Taker turns round to run the ropes, runs back and LEAPS OVER THE TOP WITH A HIGH ANGLE SUICIDE DIVE ON TO UMAGA. . . . . “Holy Shit” chants ring out as Taker & Umaga remain on the arena floor while Michaels gets back up to his feet and retreats to the corner and starts tuning up the band. Estrada walks round and grabs a chair from the timekeeper’s table, slipping it under the bottom rope towards Edge, unbeknown to Michaels and the referee. Edge comes round and grabs the chair as he then starts to stand up, hiding the chair well without turning round. Michaels then comes racing out of his corner, but Edge turns round and SMASHES MICHAELS ACROSS THE SKULL WITH THE CHAIR. . . . . Micky Henson sees it and calls for the bell immediately.



AFTERMATH: Edge stares down at Michaels with a sadistic look on his face. On the outside, Taker tries to climb back on the apron to help Shawn, but Umaga reaches back and pulls him back, then whips him hard in to the steel steps. Taker hits them shoulder first and ends up sitting against them with Umaga then charging at him and hitting a Samoan Wrecking Ball against the steel steps. Taker just drops in a heap to the floor as Estrada applauds Umaga, who just stares intensely at the dead man’s body while Edge drops the chair in the ring and runs his hands through his hair looking absolutely crazed as Michaels lies flat in front of him. “Metalingus” blasts out as the show comes to an end with Edge & Umaga staring down at the damage they’ve caused.

WINNER: Shawn Michaels & The Undertaker by DQ @ 7.29

SMACKDOWN REVIEW
BY SC2004.


[Last show before WM……… super exciting!]

Here Goes!!!

>>> Of all the people I expected to open the show, Regal was not on that list. I would of preferred if we went backstage right at the top of the show and had Regal make all these announcements from behind his desk in his office. I think it would of worked better. Anyway, loving the big booking tonight. Six big matches on SD is a treat and should set the pace for Mania in two days time.

>>> Okay, so the backstage segment with Burke, Layla, MVP and Kennedy. I like the idea of Kennedy confronting MVP of walking out of their match. It makes sense, as Kennedy is a guy who likes to prove something and he would of seen MVP’S actions as a negative as it took away from his opportunity to beat him. Burke standing up for himself makes sense and he’s right in telling MVP that he fed up of been overlooked. Nice segment.

>>> The back and forth verbal spat between Dykstra and Shane was what it was. I guess it showed that the match at WM isn’t just about the CW title, it’s personal and neither of these guys like each other and they’re all sure of victory. The verbal altercation made me think you would give this one to Shane, but I’m glad Dykstra won as the champion needs to look strong going into a fatal four way match where the odds are most definitely stacked against them.

>>> Very interesting altercation backstage between Mix & Morrison and Noble & Kash. I guess you’re planning ahead. Nice clean win for Sydal here over the veteran Chavo Guerrero. I likes the post match stuff, with both men shaking hands. It’s good to see and it was nice touch having Chavo look back at Sydal celebrating clearly disappointed with himself.

>>> Moore mad a lot of sense when he described why he turned on Matt hardy last week. I bought it. I mean essentially it’s a heel’s telling of the truth. Moore and Benjamin as a duo doesn’t work in my head, but I’m going to wait and see how it plays out.

>>> You got to love Jericho in this segment backstage with Lashley and Mysterio. I could picture it in my head as I read it and it would have been very funny to watch. Jericho is a class A antagonist and he would of loved pushing both men’s buttons following what happened Monday on Raw. There seems to be a lot of focus on the MITB ladder match tonight, which I consider a good thing, although the match sells itself these days.

>>> I didn’t particularly care all that much about who won here as I’m not that invested in the storyline. I’m cool with The Miz winning and it was typical of him to sneak away after the match up as apposed to taking on Burchill in the ring.

>>> It would have been easy for you to put Moore over here, but two days out from Mania it wouldn’t of made sense. I’m cool with hardy winning cleanly with the twist of fate. The Benjamin attack was inevitable, though I didn’t expect it to be so violent. Good match, good aftermath, logical booking.

>>> Classic Shawn Michaels promo. I loved how he acknowledged Edge was a threat, yet stated he wasn’t Mr WrestleMania. Shawn came across confidence, yet not too cocky and it showed how focused and prepared he was for the biggest match up of his career.

>>> Great intensity here by Edge. It’s good that Edge isn’t a whimpering, cry baby in your BTB. I much prefer this ruthless, slightly nutty version of the character that works so well on TV. It’s cool to see Estrada warning Edge about the fact Umaga is coming for the world title. You got to figure though, if Edge wins at Mania, Umaga isn’t going to be first in line for a title shot, even if he does beat Taker.

>>> Great six man tag team match. I’m not a Rey Mysterio fan, but having him pick up the win is logical IMO. I don’t think anyone sees him as a potential winner at WM, but this victory makes it seem like he has a shot. My pick Is still Jericho. Got to love Jericho outsmarting Lashley and Rey, that was funny. Nice build to the match up in general with everyone getting involved.

>>> The DQ finish didn’t bother me at all after what was a solid main event match up. The heels looks dominant. Not only that but Umaga and Edge who I would of called the underdogs going into WrestleMania, actually ended the night as the favourites IMO. I wonder will take and HBL both sell injuries during there matches Sunday?

OVERALL: Funnily enough this show wasn’t as good as those I’ve reviewed of late and I know why that is. All tonight was about was the six matches. As a promo, storyline fan, this style of show didn’t suit me as much. That’s not to say it was bad, on the contrary, it was very good. You did a good job of building up the MITB ladder match in particular. I would of liked a little more last minute build for the HBK/Edge & Taker/Umaga matches but it’s okay. You’ve done more than enough over the last few weeks to make me want to see what happens at Mania. Looking forward to the biggest show of the year!
