I’m not up to date on some of the current feuds etc but here’s my review.


Christian vs Rob Van Dam, obvious that Christian was going to get the win as he won at the last PPV. I like that Storm and Regal interfered which led Christian to picking up the win. Looking forward to the “fallout” from all of this.

Maven upsetting Flair is great, see if anything comes out of this.

Jumping Cutter, RKO same thing just had to re-read over that at first. Would like to see a feud between The Dudleyz and Orton and Batista

Goldberg vs Henry shouldn’t have gone 7 minutes figured it would be much shorter.

I absolutely love that Booker T is champion and wish that he would have been champion back in 2003. Not sure if he’s going to continue a feud with Triple H or what’s going to happen.


Smackdown Review.


Austin/Kanyon, not really a huge Kanyon fan, was hoping someone else would have come out and interrupted but excited to see if anything comes out of this. Love that Austin got the last word in which was expected.

Eddie Guerrero/Benoit. Reading it the match was very well written and done, I can see it happening as some of the old matches that these two have had together. Chris Benoit picking up the win was good, I hope both of them get pushes in your btb.

Kanyon wanting to face Steve Austin lmfao death wish unless he has help.

The promo between Undertaker and Lesnar, I see Undertaker beating Lesnar in the near future. Sorry was confused is Lesnar champ or Angle?

John Cena starting off as a heel good, picking up the win against a credible opponent as well.

APA picking up the win was expected, APA vs World’s Greatest Tag Team should be a good thing to see.

Squash match

Lesnar and Undertaker picking up the win was much expected. Kurt Angle and WGTT coming down and destroying absolutely everyone was a damn good thing. Angle vs Taker or Taker vs Lesnar?

Raw Feedback


I havenít written one of these in awhile, so bare with me. Obviously youíve got to start with the video package recapping Backlash, so no worries there. The event itself was a fun read. Youíll never be the greatest writer in this section, but damn, you know how to write a really fun PPV. You donít overdo it, yet you give stuff the detail it needs (shame you canít do that in bed), which is probably why this even is much like your Armageddon in the 2006 thread, a really fun read.

As nice as it is to open the show with a new champion, Booker doesnít strike me as the type of guy, whoíd come out and talk for half the show, so having Evolution open the show was definitely the right move. Obviously Triple H is pissed with Goldberg for costing him the title, so heís going to be the focus of the promo, but it just would have been more Hunter like if he spoke about the title a little bit more. Either way, Iíd dig a Hunter/Booker rematch tonight. I was surprised to see Booker go some what down the ďBenoit routeĒ with his victory speech of sorts, although with the storyline going in, it fits the feel good story. The bickering between Trips and Booker was nice as well. The arrival of Eric Bischoff was inevitable, as superstars canít book their own matches, although I didnít really like the angle you took with Bischoff. Raw roulette in three weeks, as well as all the announcements for tonight is going to make it a hell of a show, but he should have just got straight to the title match, imo. The fact he avoided it at first just seems rather stupid, tbh. Besides this, the promo did its job, setting up a huge main event on what is going to be a fairly stacked show.

Christian and Van Dam going at it for ten minutes on a weekly show is never going to get a negative response from me. Christian looks like the coward champion, somehow keeping the title, whilst RVD looks awesome in defeat. Storm and Regal getting one up on the tag champs kicks that feud into gear as well, nothing to complain about.

I mark for Thuggin and Buggin Enterprises; they were one of my favorites to write in my í04 thread. Teddy playing the race card is rather typical, although I was a little surprised to see Bischoff not really try and smooth things over with the heels like he usually does. They are happy they got a match, but I canít help but feel as if Bischoff is using Goldberg as a punishment, because Henry has no hope.

I like what youíre doing with Maven so far in this thread. He is playing the underdog roll rather nicely, although I canít help but feel eventually this is going to get old. For now though, itís brilliant, as a victory over Flair is no small thing.

Much like pre Backlash, The Rock promo, even in recap, stood out as awesome. The cracks at The Coach were all done well, especially the last one. My only issue is that The Rock Concert III is hopefully the last one; too much of a good thing could make it bad. With that being said, Iím still marking for it, and it better be in full.

I just think it was smart, logical booking to have Orton and Batista go over The Dudley Boyz tonight. This is a fairly big rub for Orton and Batista, as they are still up and comers, whereas The Dudleyz are an established team. They still donít lose face though, because they are injured from Backlash, so as I said, just smart booking.

I didnít like the Booker T and Goldberg segment at all. It was good you had them acknowledge each other after last nightís events, but I just felt as if there was nowhere near enough intensity involved, especially considering Goldberg was one of the guys involved.

With the Shawn Michaels injury angle playing out, Iím guessing weíll be seeing Jericho/Michaels II at Summerslam. I think using Kevin Nash as somebody to take up Jerichoís time until then is a very good move. Nashís part of the promo was expected, talking about being in the hospital and what not. The arrogance of Jericho came out nicely, teasing Nash, and trying to plant doubt in Nashís head. Itíll be interesting to see if Jericho/Nash happens, and if Jericho can get to Nash and cause Nash/Michaels, either way, this was a solid enough promo once Jericho took over.

Honestly, I was a little surprised Henry lasted seven minutes with Goldberg. It would have been a horrible seven minutes, until Goldberg hit his final moves, tbh.

I just assumed that Christian and Test would be dead now that Christian had the IC Title. Although it seems as if Stacy will be joining Christian soon, all at the expense of Test. This segment was okay, building towardsÖ something anyway.

Victoria looks really good here, although all three women are heels at this time, which makes it weird to see them all fighting. Vickie and Trish continuing is definitely the best way to go, although I think it may need to be spiced up a little.

A tag title match next week, as well as possible IC Title shots for Kane and RVD is pretty big news. At the same time, I canít help but feel as if Bischoff has been bullied a little to easily tonight, so I hope he has a plan which causes Van Dam and Kane to lose next week.

The main event was another well put together match between these two guys. I love it when Triple H bleeds, he always does a nice blade job, so props to him for that. The finish was rather unexpected, although I kind of like the finish, as it keeps Triple H around the belt, but not holding it.

Overall, I personally felt like this was a pretty solid show coming from Backlash. My only worry is that I hope you donít just forget about Steiner now, as you could make him just as epic in a feud with somebody other than Rocky.

Smackdown Feedback


at the Gaylord Entertainment Center. That is all.

Much like with Raw, I think you opened the show with the best possible choice. Out of everything that took place at Backlash, the biggest thing was probably Austin coming to Smackdown. By the way, no PPV video package for SD equals no ratings. I love the way you used Kanyon here, it was so unexpected yet entertaining to read. I definitely felt as if he made the promo a lot better as the beginning was just generic Austin explaining his decision, which is also needed. Austinís rebuttal was nice, as was the beat down, I like the fact you had Austin reign supreme on his first night on Smackdown. A fun start to the show.

Once again, much like with Rawís opener, any time Guerrero/Benoit get ten plus minutes on a weekly show, Iím not going to complain. The match would have been great, and Benoit as the first US champion is definitely something I like. Iím intrigued to see just what either man does from here.

When Stephanie McMahon was GM, she was always quick witted, making the heels look a little stupid, and you captured this perfectly early on with Kanyon. Austin/Kanyon next week should be a good match for Austin to get back into things with an easy win. Vinnie Mac coming to Smackdown next week is definitely going to be great after what happened at Backlash, I canít wait to see how things plan out. Itís nice to know Stephanie isnít as confident as it seems when it comes to her father as well.

Mike Awesome > just about anybody. A solid win here and a push to the moon would be nice.

Honestly, Brock Lesnar is terrible to write as a face, and even though you didnít really do much wrong, I felt like the beginning of this interview was extremely boring. Also, I highly doubt Josh Matthews of all people would have the balls to just interrupt Lesnar when he was half way through a sentence. Once The Undertaker got involved this became a pretty cool segment. Youíve started off strong with the build towards Judgment Days main event.

Youíre the only person Iíve seen who consistently gives Cena some good rap material, so props for that. I guess itís because much like me you like the hip hop. Even though he cheated, a victory over Mysterio is a pretty big deal for Cena right now; although I have a feeling Mysterio might want a rematch down the track. Either way, this would have been another solid match.

I donít really have much to say about the beginning of this segment with Kurt Angle. Absolutely nothing to complain about, you captured his nagging attitude that he had back then very nicely. I can kind of understand Hogan coming out because Angle showed the footage of him tapping, but why would he just give Angle advice? I understand he was being a little sarcastic, but despite the brawl, I really didnít feel as if Hoganís presence was needed because he added absolutely nothing. The presence of the other four guys would have just added to the explosiveness of the situation, and McMahon laying down the law was done well too. Hogan/Angle next week should be good, and at Hogan having to get in his catchphrase no matter what.

I think your Smackdown tag division is going to need some work. The way I look at it, Rikishi and Scotty suck, The FBI suck, and Mattitude is never going to be a legit team, so The APA had to get the win here. Iím happy with a WGTT/APA feud for now; Iím just worried about what youíre going to be able to do after that.

Of course Angle is going to continue to hassle Stephanie, and she was always going to stay firm. Angleís last line about The Undertaker not getting a title shot makes things very interesting though. It leaves me wondering just what Angle is going to do.

A nice win for Chavo, although it seems like this was just a throwaway match to get the Cruiserweights on the show, much like the divas on Raw. I expect better use of Billy Kidman from here on in.

Rhyno looks good with the squash win.

Three matches in a row to end the show? I would have liked a little something somewhere in between just for a little break from in ring action more than anything. Anyway, the main event did what it needed to do, it provided a good match, and allowed you to show a little more tension between Lesnar and ĎTaker with that rough tag at the start of the match. Angleís attack, and then the taking out of Hogan was nice to, if somewhat a little to predictable.

Much like Raw, I felt like this was a very solid show. With Hogan/Angle, as well as Vinnie Mac making an appearance next week things can only get better, keep it up.

RAW Feedback


Full comments on the show despite it being in recap because I generally have a bit to say, plus youíre an okay guy, I guess.

The obvious way to start the show with the Backlash recap of the RAW happenings, which is pretty much necessary unless youíre really only focusing on one angle.

I would have maybe liked to have had Booker open the show after chasing the title for so long to have his big moment, but Evolution starting off instead works alright. The way Triple H talked about the previous night was fine, while getting some cheap heat in there is also a nice little touch that Triple H always gives as a heel, so itís good to see you incorporating it into your writing as well to keep with his character. Good to see him addressing both Goldberg and Booker too, with Booker obviously needing to take priority due to him having the World Heavyweight Championship. The rematch tonight seems like a tantalizing prospect, and one that certainly works because the feud has gone on long enough for the next title match to just be on RAW, rather than dragging it on all of the way to the next Pay-Per-View before they face. A bit surprised you had Booker get called out rather than interrupt himself, as I thought it would have made him look stronger, but the speech from Booker about how heíd finally achieved what he was chasing to begin with was good. The little exchange after that was nice too, with both men bringing up points that work, especially Booker, who should come out on top both verbally since heís on a high right now. Bischoff interrupting before they come to blows makes sense, ready to spout off a few announcements. I quite like the idea of RAW Roulette being sued by Bischoff, as he is that type of guy who doesnít look to be one-upped by his competition, thus youíd expect him to try to match SmackDown!ís Pay-Per-View. Nice card that youíve put together here too, especially the main event, with the no interference stipulation being nice. With RAW Roulette being so close, I donít think this will be the blowoff to their feud, but it should still be a good main event. Nice way to open the show here, with a few big things to now really look forward to.

I like the idea behind this Intercontinental Title match, because not only should it build Christian some credibility instantly as champion, but youíve also made the match in a logical way here, with RVD getting a shot here, despite probably not being in an extended feud with Christian due to being in the tag team ranks. Anyway, enough of me gushing over why I like the booking behind this match. The writing itself was nice, making it a pretty regular type of match that got some good time, with the finish being interesting due to the run in. Hopefully the run ins signal a tag feud continuing here with Storm and Regal against Kane and Van Dam, although I guess I wouldnít mind a reforming of sorts of the Unamericans. Anyway, nice way to get Christianís reign going in a heelish manner, while the tag feud looks set to continue along.

@ the Long race stuff. Henry/Goldberg isnít a bad match to allow ĎBerg to look strong either, so this works fine.

The simple match between Maven and Flair works fine, furthering along their little feud with another shock upset allowing Maven to pick up a win over Flair. Iím not the biggest Maven fan going (in fact I think he sucks), but this is a pretty effective way to move him up the card.

Not sure hype for the Berg entering the arena is needed since heís not really going to be involved in anything big on this show (well, at least not at this stage).

Okay little promo from The Rock to set up his concert for next week, which should be amusing, although he seems a little bit directionless right now. Hopefully Steiner interrupts next week to keep their thing going, although right now it doesnít seem like they will, because Iíd usually expect Steiner to be calling The Rock out tonight if he wanted to.

Smart win to give Orton and Batista to make them look credible as a team, while The Dudley Boyz donít really look bad either due to the fact that you made it clear they werenít at their best due to the tables match from Backlash.

Nice to see a little face-off between these two after last night. I donít mind things being kept friendly between them, while also hyping a possible title match between them and their respective matches for later in the show. Good little segment.

As I said last night, I donít mind the idea of Nash feuding with Jericho while Michaels is off injured because of the obvious connection between Nash and Michaels. The start from Nash was good, explaining to the crowd what Michaels is going through and thus obviously why heís not in the arena, before pretty much calling Jericho out. Nice bit of heel work to begin with, playing the coward in staying away from Nash, while also rubbing in the fact that Michaels is injured with the line about threatening him not being able to bring Michaels back. The mind games from Jericho in reminding Nash of his past with Michaels was good, if not a little random and without a point, although the line about killing Michaelsí career, even if it wasnít transitioned back into too smoothly, was nice. The final line from Jericho before he ran away like a coward was pretty nice too, setting up a feud between these two in a good way, with Jericho set to play the coward.

I understand you donít want Henry to look weak, but I thought the match with Goldberg could have been shorter. The ĎBerg is usually at his most exciting when his matches last less than five minutes, and feeding him Henry in that time wouldnít really damage Henry that much. Still, a good win for Goldberg to keep him simmering.

A pretty decent promo here to make Christian seem like a bit of a creep and also possibly set up a feud with Test, which wouldnít be too bad.

It doesnít seem like thereís much at all going on in the womenís division right now. I guess continuing the Trish/Victoria thing for now works, although Iím hoping weíll get more of an actual storyline for the women at some point down the line.

A couple of nice matches set up here, with a good tag title match for next week set, plus some possible Intercontinental Title shots that could prove entertaining over the next few weeks.

Nice main event between Triple H and Booker, making the match seem big with the blood on Triple Hís part and the trading of finishers. It was obvious the ending wasnít going to be clean cut with these two sure to be having a title match at RAW Roulette, but I thought the finish you used was pretty unexpected and cool. A good way to finish the show.


A solid follow up here on Backlash. Nothing that sets the world on fire, obviously, with it being in recap, but some good feud development and booking all the same.

SmackDown! Feedback


A bit surprised we didnít get a Backlash video here, but the commentators did a good enough job of hyping the major result from the SmackDown! side of things of The Undertaker winning.

Austin coming out to kick the show off with a promo makes sense due to the signing of him obviously being a huge talking point here. The start of the promo was good, adding a personal element to begin with by appealing to the fans and then building it up well by having him talk about not wanting to go out with a loss at WrestleMania, giving a good reason for Austin wanting to return back to the business. Acknowledging Austinís past with Stephanie was a good little touch too, not completely ignoring his history with Stephanie despite her signing him, while also putting her over as someone who is strong and doing a good job as General Manager. A little surprised by the interruption, especially from Kanyon, but I donít mind a lesser star for Austin to look better than coming out, especially when itís an egomaniac like Kanyon. The first few lines from Kanyon were absolute gold, putting himself over big, while talking down on Austin in such a big way that it is almost ridiculously hilarious, yet would still obviously work to get a ton of heat. The line that itís now his time from Kanyon and that heís just saying what everybody else thinks was pretty great too, while I love the little heel tactic in having him correct their chant. Kanyon then pouring on the sympathy, only for Austin to mock him, then lay him out was a good way to end the segment and signal that Austin is indeed back and ready to go on SmackDown!. Nice opening segment to introduce Stone Cole onto the blue brand.

Not so sure about the booking of this title match being on SmackDown!. I mean, we just saw the semi-finals for it on a Pay-Per-View at Backlash, yet the final isnít on a Pay-Per-View? That seems backwards to me. Nonetheless, having a match like Eddie/Benoit certainly is a good way to kick things off, setting a very good tone for the wrestling side of the show. The match itself was, as youíd expect, a good contest, with some nice chain wrestling to begin with before the serious counters towards the ending. Either man would have made a fine US Champion, so thereís no problem with Benoit picking up the accolade at all, really. A good way to start off the show.

@ Kanyon. The ridiculousness from him in challenging Austin was great, showing how delusional he is, plus I loved his last line, getting his catchphrase out there. I wouldnít mind Kanyon becoming a serious midcard player in time, but right now heís being used well as fodder for Austin.

Vince being in the building next week is very interesting, and while I donít expect Stephanie to actually be fired, it should be good to see what goes down there. Iím expecting a good promo out of that one.

Good to see Awesome back and getting some build here. Heís someone who is certainly talented, yet I havenít really seen him used at all in BTB other than in Legendís thread for a brief time, so a push here would certainly be welcome.

A good confrontation here to start to get some heat between Lesnar and ĎTaker. The beginning of the promo was simple enough, emphasizing the history Undertaker and Lesnar have, while Lesnarís confidence due to the fact that he had won against ĎTaker in the past makes sense. ĎTaker making it about Show and A-Train, only for Lesnar to turn that back on him in a way and get the heat between them going due to Lesnar being the referee on Sunday was good, while ĎTaker finished the promo well too. Nice to see you keeping both men as faces yet not making this a totally boring respect storyline at the same time.

@ Cenaís rap. You make a damn good black man.

Nice little match here between Mysterio and Cena, partially putting Cena over, while also perhaps allowing for a bit of a mini-feud between these two. As shown with Cenaís rap pre-match, I think you could come up with some interesting material between these two, so Iím hoping this thing between them does go until Judgment Day, rather than just ending tonight.

Kurt Angle obviously needed some mic time after losing in controversial fashion at Backlash, so this was a natural to happen. The cheap heat to start with from Angle was pretty well done, before the speech about the title situation. The complaining kind of seemed valid, so the little bit from Angle about Lesnar was being scared of him losing his title to Angle was a nice little heel touch to get it back on track. The crybaby attitude was also pretty great, really reaffirming the heel that he is by sulking in the ring and claiming he wonít leave. Hogan coming out to interrupt is a natural move, I guess, since not only was he involved in this, but heís also the hero type of guy who wants to put an end to this type of crap. Angle cutting Hogan off before he could begin was pretty great, pretty much owning him, before the typical type of speech you expect with Hogan being the good guy. I thought there could have been a bit more fire from him, as he honestly looked like a bit too much of a pussy, especially compared with Angleís little shots in saying heís not Hoganís brother and by attacking him. Still, the brawls and runs in were done well in the fight after that, and Stephanie laying down the law was written well. Iím honestly surprised Hogan/Angle is happening next week because I also expect it to be at Judgment Day, but I guess thatís the way you go about things. Still, with that said, a pretty nice promo from you here to follow up on what happened at Judgment Day.

Solid four way match to crown some new contenders, with the chaos youíd expect from that type of stipulation. I quite like The APA as number one contenders, because a feud with Team Angle, even if only short, is fresh at this stage, and theyíre probably the best option from the bunch that you have with Los Guerreros going singles right now.

Interesting little segment with Steph and Team Angle. Nice to see Angle really persisting, showing what a whiney type of baby he is, while the threat from Angle at the end certainly brings some interest.

It seems like you like the three ways for your womenís and cruiserweight divisions. I thought this would have had a little more description than the others due to the fact that it should have been exciting, but all the same the time given to it seemed about right, and I have no problem with Chavo as a possible challenger for the Cruiserweight Title.

Rhyno with a squash victory keeps him simmering for now, perhaps headed for a feud with his friend Benoit for the US Title. Good to see you keeping him relevant here if youíre going to use him, which Iím sure you will due to the manlove you have for him.

Get to Judgment Day and Iíll love you. <3

Solid main event here, with the tension between ĎTaker and Lesnar being nice to see. Good little spot with it costing the the momentum before the heels go to work, btw. The ending was set up well, and the Angle attack makes sense with what happened earlier in the show. Glad to see you making them look absolute beastly, showing the intensity in Angle by having him (and Team Angle + A-Train) leaving everyone lying. A good, high impact finishing to the show.


A pretty solid show here. While nothing was announced from Judgment Day, other than the match we already knew, things seem to be taking shape well. The writing throughout was pretty solid too, with obviously the big money in your booking being in the main event scene. Iím now looking forward to seeing how it all comes together, especially with Austin eventually getting involved in it all. Donít stop now, jobber.

Default Re: Renegade Presents: WWE 2003 - Now Go Home And Get Your Fucking Shinebox

Thanks for all those who have reviewed so far, they have either been returned or will be returned with feedback when I have the time. If I don't respond straight away, have patience, I will get to you. Anyways, here's some news and the RAW/SD! previews for the next week of shows, which will again go up in a double post, this is likely gonna be the norm for the next while...

***

Newswire

Hulk Hogan is expected to disappear from TV soon to nurse a niggling hip injury. Hogan recently extended his deal until the night after Summerslam, and he is expected to return in time to work a big program heading into the summer PPV. What it is and with who is still unknown at this point

After recent rumours it can be confirmed the WWE has offered a contract to Monty Brown, who is currently a free agent after not picking up a permanent deal with NWA-TNA. Expect further news on this development when a deal is struck

***

WWE RAW Preview for 5/5/03

RAW will be live from Halifax, Nova Scotia for what is sure to be an action packed night

At the conclusion of last week's RAW, the World Heavyweight Championship match between Booker T and Triple H came to a hault as the two men brawled up the ramp and eventually ended with Booker T driving The Game through the RAW announce table with a Book End. What will the champ and the challenger's reactions be? Is there a case for a rematch after what happened? Booker T and Triple H are sure to be addressing us on it

Last week The Rock announced that The Rock Concert II would take place on tonight's RAW, and The Rock has promised us it'll be bigger and better than the first. What songs has The Rock been practicing for us, and what of Scott Steiner, who was given last week off by Eric Bischoff? Will he crash the party?

Eric Bischoff has made a huge match for tonight's main event however, which will see the World Heavyweight Champion Booker T team up with Goldberg, Kevin Nash and Maven to take on Chris Jericho, Ric Flair, Batista & Randy Orton of Evolution in a blokbuster 8 man tag. With this leaving Triple H out of the equation, could our General Manager have something else in mind relating to the No contest in the title match last week?

Last week Kevin Nash updated us on Shawn Michaels' medical condition as he recovers from a fracture in his ankle thanks to Chris Jericho's assault on HBK at Backlash, before Nash called Jericho out and challenged him. Jericho however avoided a confrontation and played mind games with Big Sexy, can we expect this to continue and what will happen if they cross paths in the 8 man tag?

Victoria beat Molly Holly and Jazz last week to put herself in frame for another shot at the Women's Championship. Tonight she'll face Jacqueline in singles action looking to send a message to Trish Stratus who will no doubt be watching

RVD & Kane will be defending their tag titles against Lance Storm & William Regal, with Bischoff promising the champs if they successfully retain their titles, they will both receive Intercontinental title shots. Can the champs keep their reign alive and thus earn their chance at the IC Title, or will Storm & Regal re-capture the belts they lost to RVD & Kane the night after Wrestlemania?

Speaking of the Intercontinental Title, Christian, the current champion, will surely be in attendance. Christian has been getting under the skin of Test lately, making advances at his girlfriend Stacy Keibler. Test is in action tonight against D'Lo Brown as he looks to get himself in frame for an Intercontinental title shot and gain some revenge on Christian. How will Test fair against D'Lo and will Christian make his presence felt?

All this and much more on Monday Night RAW, 8/9pm central on Spike TV.

Confirmed Matches

Booker T, Goldberg, Kevin Nash & Maven
vs
Chris Jericho & Evolution

World Tag Titles on the line
RVD & Kane (c) vs Lance Storm & William Regal

Test vs D'Lo Brown

Jacqueline vs Victoria


***

WWE SmackDown! Preview for 5/8/03

SmackDown! will be airing from Chicago, Illinois in what promises to be an eventful night for the blue brand

Stone Cold Steve Austin will wrestle his first match on SmackDown! in a year as he takes on the brash and arrogant Chris Kanyon. Kanyon interrupted Austin's comeback speech last week on SmackDown! and after Austin gave him the Stunner, demanded a match to prove that Austin was "over the hill". Can Kanyon score what many would consider an upset, or will the Rattlesnake show us that he's still got it in him?

After some uneasy moments last week, The Undertaker and the WWE Champion Brock Lesnar teamed up to face the Big Show & A-Train in last week's main event. The duo seemed to be doing quite well until Kurt Angle showed up and attacked both men, joined by Team Angle, the five out numbered Taker and Lesnar, and despite Hulk Hogan coming to their aid, Angle stood tall over the three men by the end of the show. Kurt has promised that if he can't get a title shot, he's gonna make sure his competition will struggle to get one and showed us this last week. After his earlier assault on Hogan, Stephanie McMahon has made Hulk Hogan vs Kurt Angle for tonight's show in what promises to be a huge main event. Will Hulkamania run wild or is Angle going to come out on top?

Speaking of Stephanie McMahon, she could be about to feel the wrath of her father as Vince McMahon has promised to show up on SmackDown! and wants answers as to why he feels he's been disrespected and humiliated by Stephanie as of late. McMahon has said if he doesn't like what he hears, he's going to fire Stephanie on the spot. Will our General Manager keep her job or will Vince have the last laugh?

Chavo Guerrero has moved into the front of the pack to challenge Matt Hardy for the Cruiserweight title and tonight takes on Matt's apprentice Shannon Moore. Meanwhile Matt Hardy is going one on one with another Cruiserweight hopeful in Billy Kidman. Can Chavo keep his momentum going, and can Kidman force his way into the picture. And what of Tajiri?

The APA have earned a tag title shot against Team Angle at Judgment Day, and are in action tonight against the FBI. Can they send a message to their future opponents and pick up a win against the hard hitting Italians?

All this plus Eddie Guerrero, Rhyno, Mike Awesome and the United States Champion Chris Benoit will all be in the building, on SmackDown! this Thursday on UPN

Confirmed Matches

Hulk Hogan vs Kurt Angle

Stone Cold Steve Austin vs Kanyon

The APA vs The FBI

Chavo Guerrero vs Shannon Moore

Billy Kidman vs Matt Hardy

Default Re: Renegade Presents: WWE 2003 - Now Go Home And Get Your Fucking Shinebox

RAW side of things looks solid. A confrontation between your WHC (not WWE Champion, jobber ) and Triple H should be pretty good, while The Rock Concert should also be entertaining. The wrestling side looks pretty solid too with the eight man tag, Vicikie/Jackie, the tag title match and Christian/Test. A pretty solid looking show.

SD probably mas me more excited purely for storyline development, with some solid matches set, plus Mr. McMahon being there, which should be ratings. The way you went about Lesnar/'Taker last week was good, so I'm expecting more of the same here.

Two good looking shows, jobber. I'll be reading.

Raw


Evolution starting off Raw is always a good thing and leads to better things. Im unsure about Triple H making hte fans happy ? He is heel and should have said something like you fans don't deserve to see me win the Title here tonight but it's good that he is eager to regain it.

Booker making Triple H wait was a originaly a good move. I do feel that the fact that Booker waited and came out after being threatened makes him look like a pussy ? Booker is really pissing Trips off. I like that you got the whole he is nothing without Evolution thing in. I liked Eric announcing Evolution matches but saying Christian will face RVD EWWW!! Not the time or place for that shit. Interesting stip for the main event but where was Booker standing while Bischoff spoke ? If beside him he's a bum boy! Good start to the show..


Not alot of spots or action in the Inter Title match but glad Christian won, would have lol'd if RVD won after Christian winning last night. GTFO Regal and Storm you bores! The action was saved for after the match... Kane saving the day was good... Kane and RVD v Storm and Regal next week, calling it. Lol the racist card, long is faggot! Brilliant GM work by Eric. Long comlaining and being rewarded with Henry facing Goldberg, doubt that is what he would have had in mind.


Maven looked good here, I had a feeling you would put him over, don't push him though. It is simulair to when Shelton kept pinning Triple H, Am I right ? So im expecting a beat down from Evolution later or next week..Goldberg's arrival is what it is, worth mentioning it anyway.


The Rock concert next week ? I hope you have something good planned for it because it might be hard to do unlss someone interfears which is probable.. Good win for Batista and Orton, just makes them stay strong here, nothing else to it really, Im sure that was your intention. The generic who's ect ? Mark Henry is NEXT!! I have a feeling it will be a squash match despite Henry size.


Nash showing his feelings for Shawn is good as it drew Jericho into it. Jericho and Nash could be a good fued, taking over from Shawn until he returns. If Shawn is back from a fracture before next PPV I would not be happy!
Typical Jericho being a coward and leaving while beinh chased.


Goldberg owned in this match. I know you are a fan but this is a bit much ha. I would have marked for the group to beat him down. But he took care of everyone. It wasn't the squash match I expected though, which is good... Funny stuff from Christian, he was ratings around this time. Hope you keep this up with him. Test probably would have been more pissed though ?


Don't give fuck about Diva's matches in BTB. I called that Tag Match ha. Good insentive for them to get Inter Title shot if they win, should be a good match.



Main Event was good. Obv had nothing on last nights but for a Raw it was good. The way the match ended leaves the door open for more possibilities and doesn't weaken either much. Getting Hebner involved having him knocked out added a good bit pf craziness to the match as well.


Overall: I loved the show, it progressed a lot of stuff and Jericho Nash could be interesting. WE learned of Raw Roulette and the Tag match next week has a lot on the line. The recap worked well as well, I might consider changing, you can still get a lot in.


I will edit in Smackdown soon but didn't have time for both now... Will PM you when I edit it

Default Re: Renegade Presents: WWE 2003 - Now Go Home And Get Your Fucking Shinebox

Honestly, I don't even want to see Hogan stick around until Summerslam. With that being said, hopefully you put him in a program with a good talent who could really benefit from it. As for Monty Brown, he owns, so the sooner you bring him in, if you do, the better.

Raw looks like it's going to be a pretty good show from the preview. The eight man tag match should be explosive, with me most looking forward to Nash/Jericho and what Goldberg does. The tag championship should be a good read too, and Test/Brown, and Vickie/Jackie aren't to bad either. With an epic promo from The Rock to come, as well as probably hearing from Bischoff, Booker, and Hunter, the show should definitely be a good one.

The SD preview looks pretty good as well, with Angle/Hogan obviously headlining. Any time Austins steps into the ring it's big news, and Kidman/Hardy could definitely be an entertaining match. Vinnie Mac in the house increases the excitement for the show by a fair bit.

Both shows should be good, I'll be reading.

WWE RAW
5/5/03
Metro Center
Halifax; Nova Scotia


*Opening Video*

*PYRO*


The camera pans around the arena as JR & King welcome us to the show

*START GAME*

The music of Triple H hits to heat as he makes his way to the ring by himself for a change, no sign of Evolution. The Game takes a mic and gets into the ring. HHH says last week, he had his rematch for the World Heavyweight Championship. He says that he had the match won, until Booker T intentionally took out the referee to make sure he wouldn't lose the WHC. Crowd starts a "Bullshit" chant. Trips goes on to show us the footage on the titantron of Booker kicking Hebner after The Game ducked the kick. HHH says these are stone cold facts, there's no way around them. He then says seeing as the match ended in a No Contest, that he still has his rematch in the bag, because there was no winner last week. Heat for that. Triple H demands Eric Bischoff gets out here and gives him what he wants

*CAN YOU DIG IT, SUCKA?*
*RAP SHEET*


The crowd erupts as Booker T steps out on stage to a huge pop. Booker says Triple H knows he didn't mean to hit Hebner with that kick last week. Booker says he's surprised he missed HHH's enormous nose! Crowd erupts. Booker T asks Trips how it felt to have his ass kicked twice last week? The Game gets angry and loosens his shirt, telling Booker he's got his rematch up his sleeve, thanks to Booker causing a No Contest last week. Booker tells HHH he's full of crap. Crowd gets behind Booker with a booming "Booker T" chant. Booker says Trips had his rematch last week and didn't win. He says just because there wasn't a winner, doesn't mean there wasn't a match. Booker says he'll beat HHH's ass again if need be, but maybe the fans would rather see Booker T defend the title against someone who deserves it, like GOLDBERG! Crowd explodes at the possibility of a Booker/Goldberg match. HHH gets angry and loosens his shirt collar before

*I'M BACK*

Hits and Eric Bischoff makes his way out. Bischoff says HHH makes a compelling argument, and agrees that the footage clearly shows Booker strike Earl Hebner. Bischoff also agrees that Booker did cause the No Contest by putting HHH through the announce table with a Book End. Trips is loving this, nodding and smiling as Bischoff goes on. Bischoff says however, he does seem to recall Triple H wrestling for about 15 minutes in a match. Bischoff says that was your rematch, regardless of how it ended. The Game's smile fades. Bischoff says he's not giving Triple H another rematch tonight. Crowd explodes. The Game is livid. Bischoff says Booker T is involved in the 8 man tag main event and he will not compromise that. Bischoff says Triple H will get one last title shot if he wins his match next week on RAW. Triple H wants to know who it is. Bischoff says it will be an opponent of Booker T's choosing. Crowd erupts. Booker grins. Triple H is shaking in anger like he does. Bischoff then says Triple H will also pick a mystery opponent for Booker, and if Booker loses, then Triple H can pick any stipulation he wants, should he win his match against Booker's selection. Bischoff then says he thinks Triple H deserves tonight off after last week. Bisch leaves and The Game is beside himself as Booker tells Trips he's gonna punk him out with his opponent, NOW CAN YOU DIG THAT SUCKAAA?

*BORN NAUGHTY*

Heat as Lance Storm & William Regal make their way to the ring, looking to reclaim the tag titles they lost exactly one month ago today

*PYRO*
*ONE OF A KIND/SLOW CHEMICAL*


The tag champs head to the ring with their mix theme, starting off with RVD's before the pyro turns it into Kane's. Van Dam does the thumb point as Lilian Garcia announces his name and Kane then shoots off the pyro's inside the ring

Match 1
World Tag Team Championships Match
RVD & Kane (c) vs Lance Storm & William Regal

Van Dam starts things off with Storm and is all over the Canadian in the early going as he then tags in Kane who rough houses Storm around. Storm manages to turn the tables with a suspiciously low kick that Jack Doan deems to be above the belt despite the reaction of the fans and tag in Regal as the heels look to double team Kane, beating on the Big Red Machine in the corner. They shoot the big man to the ropes but Kane comes back and takes them down with a Double Clothesline!
Kane hits Regal with an uppercut right hand then tags in RVD as he Scoop Slams Regal down. Van Dam mounts the top rope and comes off with the Split Legged Moonsault! Cover 1...2..kickout. Van Dam brings Regal up, whips him to the ropes and takes him down with a Spinning Heel Kick. RVD then rebounds off the ropes and goes for the Rolling Thunder, but Regal gets his knees up! From here Regal works over RVD's back, hitting him with a Pendulum Backbreaker and covering 1...2.kickout. Regal then tags in Storm and the duo go to work on Van Dam. Kane gets in to help his partner but with Jack Doan distracted restraining him, Storm throws RVD out of the ring where Regal rams him spine first into the ring apron! Regal rolls RVD back in and Storm drops an elbow before covering 1...2.kickout again. Storm brings Van Dam up and hits him with a left hook, then lifts a knee into the back of RVD before taking Van Dam down with a Double Underhook Backbreaker and tags back into Regal. Regal comes in and sends RVD hard into the corner with the impact sending RVD to the mat, holding his back. Regal methodically drops a knee to RVD's back then pressures a forearm across as he covers 1...2..kickout. William Regal brings RVD up and looks to go for the REGAL CUTTER...but RVD resourcefully counters with a Falling Neckbreaker! The crowd gets behind RVD as he struggles to the corner and Regal manages to tag out to Storm AND VAN DAM HOT TAGS IN KANE! Kane drops Storm with a right hand, then shoots him to the ropes when he gets up and elevates him into the air with a Back Body Drop!

Kane staggers back and Storm charges at him, only to walk right into a goozle! Kane lifts Storm up and drills him to the mat with the CHOKESLAM FROM HELL! Kane then covers 1...2...REGAL BREAKS IT UP! Regal pounds on Kane with left hands and takes the Big Red Machine down with a DDT. RVD comes to his partners aid, hitting Regal with a couple of right hands and going for a kick only for Regal to catch it, but Van Dam counters with the Step Over Windmill Kick! Regal rolls out of the ring after that and Van Dam sees Storm down from the Chokeslam and hoists himself up onto the turnbuckle and SOARS OFF WITH THE FIVE STAR FROGSPLASH...IT CONNECTS! RVD then pulls himself up and takes a deep breath as Kane gets his whereabouts and covers Storm 1...2...3!
Winners @ 12:27 - RVD & Kane
Retain World Tag Team Championships

We return backstage now and Terri is standing by with The Rock! Terri asks The Rock what can we expect tonight in the second Rock Concert? The Rock says we can expect it to be the greatest moment in the history of Monday Night RAW! The Rock says he can't wait to play again for the "millions...AND MILLIONS" of The Rock's fans. Mixed reaction for that. The Rock then says he needs some space to practice and walks off as Terri sends it back to ringside

*DANGER AT THE DOOR*

D'Lo Brown makes his way to the ring accompanied by Teddy Long. Brown gets into the ring and poses on the buckle getting some decent heel heat

*THIS IS A TEST*

The crowd gives a decent pop as Test heads to the ring accompanied by DEM LEGS Stacy Kiebler. Test gets into the ring looking all business tonight

Match 2
Singles Match
Test w/Stacy Kiebler vs D'Lo Brown w/Theodore Long

Test is the aggressor in the early going, but D'Lo gives as good as he gets in a fairly even if uneventful matchup. D'Lo tries to go for the Running Powerbomb but Test counters it, lifting D'Lo up and over with a Back Body Drop. Brown gets to his feet and Test rocks him with a right hand, Test then shoots him to the ropes and TAKES D'LO'S HEAD OFF WITH A HUGE BIG BOOT! Test looks to have it won as he brings D'Lo up and gets him in position for a PUMP HANDLESLAM but CHRISTIAN is heading down to ringside. Christian sneaks up on Stacy Kiebler who's telling Test to finish off D'Lo, grabs her and spins her around AND LAYS A BIG WET KISS ON HER! Stacy tries to push Christian away but he keeps the kiss going for a few seconds before letting her go as Test hops onto the apron, telling Christian to stay away from his woman. Christian slaps his chest looking pleased with himself as Stacy is yelling all kinds of expletives at him, looking horrified she just copped a kiss from him. Test looks to go and console his woman but D'Lo spins him around AND TAKES HIM DOWN WITH THE SKY HIGH! D'Lo covers 1...2...3!
Winner @ 4:32 - D'Lo Brown
D'Lo rolls out of the ring and celebrates his win with Teddy Long as Test slaps the mat in frustration and quickly attends to a shaken Stacy Kiebler, as Christian stands on the stage, with a shit eating grin on his face as Test glares up at him


Backstage now and Maven is walking through the halls, when he's stopped as in his way stand Ric Flair, Batista & Randy Orton! Evolution surround the youngster and Flair asks Maven if he feels he's competing beyond his capabilities tonight, teaming with and facing such established superstars. Maven smirks and asks Flair if he feels the same, seeing as he's lost twice to him in the past 2 weeks. Crowd pops and Naitch goes nuts, telling Maven a couple of flukes don't compare to 30+ years of greatness. Flair says Maven's going to find out what it's like to be in the big leagues tonight. Batista & Orton move in to intimidate Maven who gets backed against the wall. Flair tells Maven he will never amount to anything other than a flash in the pan who got a couple of lucky victories. Flair says maybe it's better if Maven doesn't bother joining his team mates tonight, so he doesn't embarrass them and himself out there. Evolution laugh and walk off, playing some mind games with Maven

-Commercials-

We are backstage now and Test is seen comforting Stacy who's still upset after what happened earlier. Mark Lloyd approaches Test and asks what his reaction to what Christian did is? Test says Christian just made the biggest mistake of his life. Test says he's going to teach Christian a lesson when Eric Bischoff walks in. Bischoff tells Test he saw what happened earlier and grants Test a match with Christian next week. Test asks what's the catch? Bischoff says there's no catch, he wanted a match with Christian, and he's got it. Bischoff also says if Test beats Christian next week, he can consider himself in the frame for an Intercontinental title shot. The Bisch walks off and Test tells Stacy he'll make sure Christian never messes with her again

*MACMILLITANT*

Heat as Mark Henry and Rodney Mack make their way to the ring for this upcoming match. The other members of Thuggin' and Buggin' are absent from their side, with the duo feeling they've got it covered

*YEAH, WE'RE COMIN' DOWN*
*PYRO*

Match 3
Tag Team Match
The Dudley Boyz vs Thuggin' & Buggin' Enterprises

D-Von attempts to whip Rodney to the ropes but it's countered, Mack sending D-Von instead. Mack then catches D-Von on the return with a Powerslam! Cover 1...2.kickout. Mack brings D-Von up and tags in Mark Henry who punches him in the ribs, then shoots him into the corner and raises his foot to the throat of D-Von, applying a choke hold with his boot to D-Von. D-Von gets a beating for the next few minutes before countering a double team and planting both Henry and Mack with DDT's! D-Von hot tags into Bubba who cleans house and plants Mack with the Bubba Bomb! Bubba covers 1...2..Henry breaks it up. Henry beats on Bubba in the corner and goes for the Body Avalanche, but Bubba moves and Henry crashes sternum first into the corner. Henry stumbles out and Bubba clotheslines him out to the floor! Rodney Mack then gets back to his feet and the Dudleyz hit the 3D! Bubba covers 1...2...3!
Winners @ 6:03 - The Dudley Boyz


Cut backstage now and we see a Barracuda pull up in the parking lot and out steps GOLDBERG to a huge pop. Terri Runnels catches up with The Berg and asks if she can have a word regarding Goldberg's opponents tonight in the 8 man tag. Goldberg smirks and says she can have two words "THEY"RE NEXT" [/predictable Goldberg promo] and walks off into the backstage area

-Commercials-

We return and the ring is all set up for The Rock Concert II when the titantron begins to play the Hollywood entrance for The Rock and then

*YA SMELL IT CAN YA?*

Hits and out comes The Rock to a loud mixed reaction. The Rock takes his time heading to the ring as he shows off his brand new guitar before he gets into the ring and sits down on his stool, guitar in hand, headset on

Rock: Alright alright. Welcome to The Rock Concert Two live from Nova Scotia baby!

Cheap pop

Rock: The Rock loves that he's here doing The Rock Concert Two right now, coz that means once it's over, The Rock can get the hell outta here and go back to America!

Heat

Rock: Hey, don't boo The Rock!

More heat, "Rocky Sucks" chant begins

Rock: Ah what do you mother canuckers know anyway?

Jeers from the crowd

Rock: Alright, it's time. Now The Rock's gonna have to ask you all to show some respect to The Great One, know your roles and shut your mouths when The Rock's singing his songs!

Crowd shits on Rock for that

Rock: {Clears throat} Ok. The Rock's gonna kick things off with a song called Farewell to Nova Scotia...

Crowd pops for the famous (to them anyway) song

Rock: Farewell to Nova Scotia, the sea-bound coast,
Let your women, fat and ugly be
You'll never have any good reason to boast
Coz The Rock can't wait to see the back of thee!

Mega heat as The King marks like a little girl on commentary, and The Rock smiles at his own lyrics, enjoying himself

Rock: That's right, The Rock's got all the classics covered!

More heat

Rock: Alright, The Rock's feeling a little patriotic, so how about O Canada?

Mixed reaction, some want to hear it, others however, know he's gonna butcher it and don't wanna hear it

Rock: Oh you don't wanna hear O Canada?

"NO" from the majority of the crowd

Rock: Fine. The Rock's got something else up his sleeve...

Rock begins to play a tune when the crowd starts booing

Rock: The Rock's gonna have to ask you to keep it down baby! The Rock needs to concentrate!

More heat

Rock: The Rock's singing live on Monday Night RAW
He's gettin' lots of pie later, that's for sure
Canada's always hatin' on The Rock
Lucky for The Rock he doesn't give a flying canuck!

More heat as The King gets up and gives him a round of applause as JR shakes his head

Rock: The Rock knows you liked that one!

The crowd boos as Rocky smiles

Rock: Man The Rock is thirsty, he needs a sip of The People's Water!

Rock takes a sip from the bottled water on his little side table, pretending to be famished

Rock: Ah that's better! You don't get water like this in Canada, this is 100% American water!

Huge heat

Rock: Alright alright, The Rock's got another song to play.

Rocky strums along

Rock: Last week at Backlash, Scott Steiner challenged The Rock
One on one, he thought he'd win, but what a shock
It must've been, to get the smack layed down on him at last
And have all his trash talk shoved straight up his candy ass!

The King is giving Rocky a standing ovation as The Rock laughs

Rock: You like that one? The Rock's got one more song for you all tonight.

*HOLLA IF YA HEAR ME*

The crowd ERUPTS with a massive reaction as out of nowhere Scott Steiner's music hits. The Rock looks ready to wet himself as he arms himself with his guitar and then out on stage steps LITTLE PUNY PUMP! The Rock breaks down in laughter as the midget he brought out to mock Steiner a few weeks ago stands on stage

Rock: {Laughing} Ah The Rock remembers you! What do you think you're doing? You want a front row seat to The Rock's concert? By all means, make yourself at home. Just don't interrupt The Rock or he'll have to whip that ass again!

As this happens however SCOTT STEINER comes through the crowd and slides into the ring behind The Rock! The crowd comes alive as Steiner takes the guitar out of Rock's hand and Rock turns around AND STEINER BREAKS THE GUITAR OVER THE HEAD OF THE ROCK! The crowd pops as Steiner smashes the guitar over The Rock's head and it's lights out for The Brahma Bull. Steiner exits the ring, smirking at The Rock who's still out of it in the ring

-Commercials-


We return and are shown a replay of Steiner ambushing The Rock Concert II and cracking Rocky's guitar over his head and during the break, Bischoff orders Steiner to have a match as punishment for what he did and says he's got "3 minutes" to win or he's suspended indefinitely!

*3 MINUTES*

The crowd boos as Rosey & Jamal head to the ring, Scott Steiner knowing he's in for a rough time here

Match 4
Handicap Match
3 Minute Time Limit
Scott Steiner vs 3 Minute Warning

Despite a tough task, Steiner starts off well and keeps 3MW at bay, but it doesn't take long for the two huge men to overpower and outnumber Steiner. They beat Steiner down with an assortment of high impact moves and just when it looks like Big Poppa Pump is done for, he avoids a Body Avalanche from Rosey, runs through Jamal with a clothesline then takes Rosey down with a huge Overhead Belly to Belly Suplex! Jamal gets up and Steiner takes him down with an Exploder Suplex. The Big Booty Daddy then locks the STEINER RECLINER on Rosey! Rosey tries to last it out but can't and Rosey taps out just in time to save Steiner's job!
Winner @ 2:56 - Scott Steiner
Extremely impressive win by Steiner to save him from suspension and send a message that he's well and truly still a force to be reckoned with despite the loss at Backlash to The Rock


Backstage now and The Rock is icing the side of his head with an ice pack. Rocky is pissed off Steiner ruined The Rock Concert II and has just seen Steiner win his match on TV. The Rock says next week on RAW, he's calling Steiner out and he's gonna do a repeat of Backlash and whip that ass

-Commercials-

We return and Eric Bischoff is kicking back on his sofa in his office watching some TV when Christian barges in. Christian asks Bischoff if he's got something in for Christian, giving him a match with Test next week? Bisch says he doesn't, but tells Christian he'd probably rather face Test in the ring than have Test find him backstage. Christian agrees and then brings up the fact that RVD and Kane both have title shots now thanks to winning their match earlier. Christian says he's the Intercontinental Champion, he shouldn't be treated like this. Bischoff calms Christian and says that he's had a change of heart, and that RVD and Kane will have to face off next week on RAW for the right to challenge Christian! Christian eases his worries somewhat with that news and as he goes to leave Bischoff says don't be surprised if that match tragically, doesn't finish and smirks, with Christian laughing and nodding as he leaves

*TEXAS DIVA*

Jacqueline heads to the ring to an average face reaction. Jackie plays to the fans as she gets into the ring

*ALL THE THINGS SHE SAID*

Out comes the number one contender to Trish's title, the psychotic Victoria. With Steven Richards by her side, she gets into the ring and stares down Jackie as Steven Richards gets up on the apron, distracting Jacqueline when

*TIME TO ROCK AND ROLL*

The crowd erupts as the Women's Champion Trish Stratus makes her way to the ring. Trish looks like she's gonna be in Jackie's corner to counter Richards being in Victoria's

Match 5
Singles Match
Jacqueline w/Trish Stratus vs Victoria w/Steven Richards

Jackie reminds us all that despite not being used much lately, she's still got it in the ring, taking it to Victoria in the early going and getting a close fall with a Reverse DDT 1...2..kickout. Jackie brings Victoria up and shoots her to the corner and follows in, copping a boot to the face from Victoria. Jackie staggers out holding her jaw and Victoria powers her up and slams her down with a Cannonball Buster! Cover 1...2..kickout. Victoria dominates Jackie from here on as Trish looks on worryingly as Victoria applies a Sleeper hold on Jacqueline but as usual the face gets a second wind and fights back, taking Victoria down with a Back Suplex! Jackie looks to put the match away as she reverses Victoria's whip and pulls Vickie into a knee to the gut, going for a Fisherman's Suplex and keeping it held for a pin 1...2...THE REF IS DISTRACTED BY STEVEN RICHARDS! Trish sees this and runs around, pulling Richards off the apron and nailing him with the CHICK KICK! However in the ring Victoria plants Jacqueline with the WIDOWS PEAK! Cover 1...2...3!
Winner @ 4:45 - Victoria
Victoria looks to inflict further damage on Jacqueline but Trish gets into the ring and Vickie thinks better of it and hops out with that evil smile on her face as Trish attends to Jacqueline


Backstage now and Chris Jericho is interviewed by The Coach. Coach asks Jericho if he's worried about being in a match with Kevin Nash, considering what he's done to Nash's best friend Shawn Michaels at Backlash? Jericho plays it cool, saying he's not worried about Nash. Y2J says that Nash should be worried about Jericho and what he's capable of doing. Jericho says if Nash doubts what Jericho can do, he should take a trip to see Shawn and ask him first hand before walking off. We then switch to see Kevin Nash who was watching this on a monitor, Big Sexy's eyes filled with rage as we fade to a commercial

*INVASION*

The crowd EXPLODES as Goldberg bursts through his locker room door and marches through the backstage area, stepping out on stage and through his spraying pyro set, snorting and growling with his usual high intensity as he proceeds to punch and kick the air, setting off his cracking pyro's. The Berg shows no sign of intimidation as he climbs the steps and gets into the ring as Maven slides in with him and Nash follows The Berg, stepping over the top rope into the ring. Goldberg paces back and forth eyeing up Evolution as Maven climbs the turnbuckle and looks down at them, whilst Nash's eyes are locked on Jericho

*CAN YOU DIG IT, SUCKA?*
*RAP SHEET*


For the second time tonight the World Heavyweight Champion, Booker T, makes his way out and brings the crowd to their feet. Booker sets off his pyro set on the ramp before joining his team mates in the ring, climbing the turnbuckle and raising the World title to a huge pop from the fans

Main Event
Match 6
8 Man Tag Team Match
Booker T, Goldberg, Kevin Nash & Maven

Booker T starts things off with Randy Orton as the crowd is hot as fuck for this one. Booker takes young Orton to school in the early going and scores with a Jumping Calf Kick and covers 1...2.kickout. Booker brings Orton up and wrenches the arm before walking Orton over to the face corner and Booker tags in Kevin Nash! The crowd erupts as Big Sexy steps over the top rope and nails Orton with a forearm strike, taking him down. Nash brings Orton to his feet and whips him to the corner and follows in with a clothesline! Orton staggers out but Nash hits another forearm strike sending Orton back into the corner. Nash then delivers an elbow strike to Orton, and then another before taking a step back, sizing up Orton and performing a crotch chop to the delight of the fans before hitting a third elbow to Orton. Nash then sends Orton to the ropes and meets him on the rebound, scooping him up and drilling him to the mat with a Helicopter Slam! Cover 1...2..kickout. Kevin Nash grabs Orton looking to bring him to his feet, but Randy breaks free and hits Nash with a right hand before going to tag out...JERICHO HOPS OFF THE APRON! Y2J wants no part of Nash so Orton tags in Batista. The two big men exchange words before tying up and Batista shows his incredible power, managing to out muscle Big Sexy and back him into the corner, but the veteran Nash turns the tables on Batista and lifts a knee strike into the midsection of the Animal. Nash raises a second knee to Batista, and then a third, before pulling him out of the corner and taking him down with a Sidewalk Slam! Cover 1...2.kickout. Kevin Nash brings Batista to his feet and tags in Maven, before exposing the ribs of the Animal as Maven leaps off the top rope, driving a right hand down into the ribs of Batista. Maven then rocks Batista with a right hand, and then another, before attempting to shoot Batista to the ropes, but Batista counters and catches Maven and drills him to the mat with a Two Handed Chokebomb! Batista covers 1...2...kickout.
Maven gets isolated here as Batista sends him into the heel corner then taunts Booker T who tries to help Maven, but as Hebner restrains him, the heels go to town on Maven, Jericho using the tag rope to choke him out and Batista & Orton put the boots to him. They then take Maven down with a Double Suplex! Batista covers 1...2..kickout. Batista gets up and Ric Flair is begging for a tag, wanting a piece of Maven. The Animal obliges and Flair gets into the ring to a chorus of "Woo's". Flair takes young Maven to school, lighting him up with knife edge chops, then sending him to the ropes and knocking him off his feet with a right hand. Flair rebounds off the ropes and drops a knee to the head of Maven and covers 1...2.kickout. Naitch starts to stomp away on Maven now, telling him "you're not such a hotshot now are ya?" as he's in control. Flair stops and let's out a huge "WOO" before placing Maven in the corner and lighting him up with another knife edge chop! Flair asks Maven "are you respecting me now?" as he hits another chop, charring Maven's chest red raw. Flair goes to whip Maven across the ring, but it's countered and Flair hits the opposite buckle back first and staggers out, Maven elevates him up over the shoulder with a Back Body Drop! Crowd pops as Maven tries to tag out, but Chris Jericho knocks him down from behind with a clothesline. Kevin Nash steps into the ring and Jericho instantly darts back behind Earl Hebner who restrains Big Sexy as Jericho smirks and mocks Nash. Jericho sees Maven struggling to his feet and SLAPS HIM ACROSS THE FACE! Jericho then sends him to the ropes and takes him down with a Spinning Wheel Kick. It seems as usual the heels have switched without needing to tag out as Y2J covers Maven 1...2..shoulder up. Jericho tags in Randy Orton and the two send Maven to the ropes and meet him with a double reverse elbow. Orton picks Maven back up and takes him down with an Inverted Headlock Backbreaker! Cover 1...2..Maven again gets a shoulder up! Orton attempts to hit the OVERDRIVER and finish Maven off, but Maven counters, spinning out of it and taking Orton down with a DDT! Both men down.
Orton struggles over to his corner and tags in Jericho who quickly grabs Maven by the leg, halting him from making it to the face corner and drags him away, but Maven balances himself and nails an Enzuigiri! Jericho goes out like a light but as he falls tags in Flair AND MAVEN LEAPS ACROSS AND TAGS IN GOLDBERG! The crowd erupts as The Berg hops over the ropes and takes Flair down with a clothesline! Flair gets back up and Goldberg knocks him down with a shoulder block, then Randy Orton comes charging across and Goldberg takes him down with a clothesline too! Goldberg turns back to Flair and grabs him by the throat, powers him into the air with a Military Press before catching him and slamming him down with a Front Slam! Goldberg gets to his feet but Batista & Jericho double team him, derailing his momentum and this brings Booker T and Kevin Nash into the ring as all hell breaks loose. Nash grabs Jericho and levels him with a right, Jericho rolls to the outside but Nash follows him, looking to exact revenge for what he did to Nash's best friend Shawn Michaels. Booker T unloads on Batista with right hands as Randy Orton puts the boots to Goldberg. Nash tosses Jericho out into the crowd as Earl Hebner follows them, trying to get the two back into the ringside area. Inside the ring Batista counters a Booker T Irish whip attempt and plants him with a Spinebuster! Maven gets sent crashing into the steel steps on the outside by Flair. Batista gets up in the ring and IS TAKEN OUT WITH A HUGE SPEAR! Goldberg broke free from Randy Orton with a right hand and then ran right through Batista! Goldberg points to the roof signalling it's Jackhammer time to a huge pop as he brings Batista up and places him in a front facelock, but Randy Orton clubs The Berg over the back and saves his partner. Orton hits Goldberg with a right hand then tries to whip him to the ropes, but Goldberg counters it and pulls Orton back into a SPEAR! The Berg gets up and IS HIT ACROSS THE FACE WITH THE WORLD TITLE BELT...BY TRIPLE H! The Game has made an appearance, with Hebner still trying to get Nash & Jericho who are beating the hell outta each other in the crowd, back into the ring. HHH then sizes up Booker T AND HITS BOOKER BETWEEN THE EYES WITH THE BELT TOO! The Game tosses the belt out of the ring and Ric Flair covers Goldberg, as Earl Hebner sees the count in the ring and hops back over the barricade and gets into the ring to make the count 1...2...3!
Winners @ 13:42 - Chris Jericho, Ric Flair, Batista & Randy Orton
The crowd boos as HHH makes his mark on Booker and Goldberg, The Game getting into the ring and telling Booker T "who's a sucker now?" as Evolution join him and they celebrate their victory


We cut to backstage where Nash and Jericho are still going at it, with Nash all over Y2J who's trying to escape. Nash throws Jericho into a garage door in the back. Jericho crawls away with Big Sexy following him. Jericho tries to pull himself up but Nash is there again, grabbing him and launching him into the wall. Nash goes to grab Jericho again but out of desperation Jericho hits a Low Blow to Big Sexy! Jericho then struggles back to his feet, grabs Nash and SENDS HIM THROUGH A GLASS WINDOW OF A SMALL OFFICE! The crowd breaks into a "Holy Shit" chant as Nash goes through the glass and Jericho smirks then applies the WALLS OF JERICHO on Nash! Y2J is heard saying "enjoy sharing a ward with Shawn" before officials and medics arrive on the scene after Nash has suffered for close to a minute in the Walls, and break Jericho off Nash as we fade out with JR saying there's gonna be hell to pay next week

WWE SmackDown!
5/8/03
United Center
Chicago; Illinois


*Opening Video*

*PYRO*


The camera pans around the arena before fixating on Cole & Tazz


Cole: Hello and welcome everyone, we have sold out the United Center tonight in the Windy City and we are in for one hell of a show, Stone Cold Steve Austin wrestles his first match on SmackDown! for over a year against Chris Kanyon, Mr. McMahon is going to confront his own daughter Stephanie, Hulk Hogan faces Kurt Angle in a huge main event and of course, The Undertaker and the WWE Champion Brock Lesnar are both in the building tonight.

Tazz: You got that right Cole tonight's gonna be off the hook baby I can't wait.

*NO CHANCE IN HELL*

Major heat is heard as Vince McMahon marches to the ring, walking like a constipated idiot as always. McMahon takes a mic and gets into the ring

Mr. McMahon: Alright cut my music.

McMahon doesn't look happy at all

Mr. McMahon: Two weeks ago, at Backlash, I was humiliated...

McMahon is cut off by a huge pop for that

Mr. McMahon: SHADDUP!

"Asshole" chant starts up and McMahon scrunches up his face in disgust at the fans

Mr. McMahon: As I was saying before you people cut me off, last Sunday at Backlash I was humiliated. I was humiliated in front of twenty thousand people inside the arena, and millions of people watching the pay per view worldwide.

McMahon stops and shakes his head

Mr. McMahon: I, Vincent Kennedy McMahon, the man who owns this whole damn company, was made to look a laughing stock, and it makes me sick every time I think back to it!

McMahon gulps, as if swallowing his own pride in admitting this next bit

Mr. McMahon: But that alone isn't what's got me so pissed off! Because last Sunday was not the first time I've been humiliated in front of a worldwide audience. Last Sunday's incident annoys me so much, because it was orchestrated by none other than my own daughter, Stephanie McMahon!

Pop for Steph

Mr. McMahon: My own flesh and blood, who came forth from my grapefruits, organised to have me embarrassed in front of everyone. AND DAMMIT I WANT TO KNOW WHY!

McMahon's anger is building now

Mr. McMahon: So Stephanie, GET OUR HERE RIGHT NOW!

McMahon doesn't have to wait long as

*ALL GROWN UP*

Hits to a big cheer and Stephanie McMahon makes her way to the ring looking hot as hell. Steph gets into the ring and looks at her father who's trying his best to hide his anger at her. Steph seems quite relaxed and calm, despite what she could be in store for


Stephanie: Look d-

Mr. McMahon: SHADDUP!

WHOA! Vince burns Steph who looks taken aback by that

Mr. McMahon: You disgust me! How could you do this to your own father? What have you got to say for yourself? Huh?

Stephanie: First off, I want to say, that the SmackDown following Wrestlemania, I cut your time on the show because quite simply, I had something far more important to this brand to air. I did that for the sake of this brand, to promote Stone Cold Steve Austin's impending arrival.

Huge pop for Austin

Stephanie: But of course, like always, you and your huge ego couldn't see past the fact that you weren't in the spotlight, and you threatened to fire me the very next week because of it. You show up and call me out, but then decide not to fire me. Then you announce you want me in the ring for your {uses her index and rude fingers to do air quotes} big announcement at Backlash and dare the person who's hype videos you kept interrupting to show up and confront you, and thanks to me, you got your wish. Face it Dad, you brought it all on yourself.

Massive cheer

Stephanie: You come out here and claim I was the reason behind you're humiliation at Backlash? {Shaking index finger} I don't think so. You can't pin the blame on me. You can't pin the blame on Stone Cold Steve Austin. The only one you can blame, is yourself.

Another big pop

Stephanie: {Smirking} And maybe your ego too...

The crowd laughs as Vince scrunches up his face at Steph's words

Mr. McMahon: That's a load of crap Stephanie and you know it.

Stephanie: Is it? I don't think so. You said at Backlash you regret having made me General Manager of SmackDown, but look at what I've done for this brand since. I brought the WWE Tag Team Championships back to this brand, I recently brought the United States Championship back, I signed Rey Mysterio to the brand, I signed Hulk Hogan (mega pop) to the brand and I recently signed Stone Cold Steve Austin to the brand!

Another mega pop for Austin

Stephanie: Ever since I came here, I've done everything I could to help this show. And you can ask the fans, I'm sure they'd agree with me?

Huge pop for that

Stephanie: And you could ask anyone backstage, and they'd also agree that I've done a good job here as Gene-

*MEDAL*

The crowd erupts out of pure shock before the heat comes flooding through as Kurt Angle steps out on stage, mic in hand. Angle cops the usual "You Suck" chants from the fans before speaking


Angle: Excuse me Chicago, but I don't suck. I won an Olympic Gold medal with a broken frickin' neck! Sheez!

Angle shakes his head at the fans as they jeer him

Angle: Now Stephanie, I had to stop you right there. Mr. McMahon, I don't agree with what your daughter has said at all. I certainately don't think she's done a good job as General Manager of SmackDown!

Heat

Angle: Ever since Wrestlemania, she's done her best to hold me down and keep me away from the WWE Title. She claimed I didn't have a rematch clause in my contract after I lost the WWE Championship to Brock Lesnar, and said I'd have to get Lesnar to agree that I deserved another title shot. And even after I managed to get that, she refused me the match with Brock Lesnar, instead putting me in a number one contender's match with The Undertaker and Hulk Hogan!

Pop for the mention of Taker and Hulk

Angle: And then she went and made Brock Lesnar the special referee, and he proceeded to cost me the match. I made Hulk Hogan tap in the middle of the ring dammit! I have the video footage to prove it, yet she ignores it and says the decision that was made by Lesnar, THE WRONG DECISION, stands! It's an injustice to me, and I am out here to throw my full support behind the idea of firing her as General Manager, because this brand deserves a fair and unbiased person in charge of making the decisions around here!

Huge heat and an "Asshole" chant starts up directed at Angle

Mr. McMahon: Well Stephanie, it seems you were wrong. You clearly don't have the support of your roster.

Stephanie: Kurt, I've told you plenty of times, you didn't have a title shot rematch clause in your contract because you signed off on it without reading it over first. I told you that Brock Lesnar's decision is final in regards to last Sunday at Backlash. You need to let it go.

Angle: I won't let it go until justice is served!

Angle is starting fume, again getting frustrated with Stephanie's stubbornness

Angle: Mr. McMahon {sucking up} sir, I implore you to use your authority and over rule Stephanie's decision!

Stephanie looks at Angle as if to say "how dare you"

Angle: Because I've got a match with Hulk Hogan tonight, and I promise you, if you do this for me, I will finish Hogan for you!

Mega heat for that as Vince LOVES what he's hearing

Mr. McMahon: Well Kurt, I think I've heard all I need to hear. Stephanie...

McMahon gets that wicked smile of his across his face

Mr. McMahon: YOU'RE FIRED!

Steph is shocked and the crowd SHITS on McMahon for that. Stephanie takes a deep breath and Angle is laughing when

*WRESTLEMANIA INSTRUMENTAL*

There's a big response of surprise as LINDA MCMAHON steps out on stage, much to the horror of her husband Vince, whilst Angle has a quizzical look on his face, wondering why Linda's out here, and Stephanie can't help but show her delight at her mother's interruption


Linda: Vince, Vince. {Shakes head} You know that you can't just go ahead and make such a decision.

Mr. McMahon: What do you mean? I own this company, I can damn well do what I please!

Linda: Well then seeing as you're the owner of this company Vince, you should know that you can't make such a decision without approval from the board of directors.

Big pop as Vince's eyes roll back into his head momentarily, knowing this doesn't usually spell good news

Linda: And I can guarantee you, the board would never agree on the decision to fire Stephanie, because we all agree she's done a fantastic job as General Manager!

Pop

Mr. McMahon: Linda, our very own daughter has humiliated me, embarrassed me, degraded me and you're going to stand there and not support my, your husband's decision?

Linda: You're right, I'm not.

Mr. McMahon looks furious and shocked at the same time

Angle: Linda... uh I mean, Mrs. McMahon, if I could please direct you to my case I'm sure you'd agree that I've been unfairly treated?

Linda: Yes Kurt I am well aware of what's happened with you, and after seeing the evidence put forth by both of you, whilst you do have some good points, it's clear to see Stephanie has done nothing wrong!

Massive pop as Angle kicks the ring ropes

Angle: Bu-

Linda: But nothing! Now Kurt, you are a contracted star to the SmackDown brand and that means Stephanie McMahon is in control, and her decisions on matters such as these are final!

Another huge pop as Angle can't believe it and Stephanie is grinning ear to ear as her mother lays down the law

Linda: And Vince, the board has decided if you continue to show up on SmackDown and pester Stephanie, they will approve an injunction to bar you from appearing on the show aslong as she's in charge!

Mr. McMahon: DAMMIT THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING!

Linda: Well it is, so I suggest that Kurt, you get to the back and prepare for your match tonight with Hulk Hogan, and Vince, you better follow suit and leave this arena.

Kurt Angle has his hands on hips and thinks about it before turning to Stephanie and glaring at her, before swallowing his pride and exiting the ring before turning to Stephanie and mouthing "this isn't over"

Mr. McMahon: This is my damn ring! This is my damn company! And I will not leave just because you said so!

Linda: Alright Vince, if you want to do it the hard way, so be it. Security!

The crowd erupts as a bunch of security guards step out on stage

Linda: Please escort Mr. McMahon out of the ring and to his limo!

The security team march to the ring and McMahon takes off his jacket, ready to take them on, but they easily restrain him and walk him out as the crowd starts singing "Na-na-na-na, na-na-na-na, hey heyyyy, goodbye!" Vince tries to break free from the security's grip and reason with Linda, but they keep him in check and escort him through the curtain to the back

Linda: Well, now that whole ordeal is done with, Stephanie, I'll leave it to you to get on with the show.

Linda's theme hits again and she exits as Stephanie looks relieved to still have her job as GM and she gets out of the ring and heads to the back, slapping hands with some fans at ringside, with a new lease on her job without the constant fear of her father lingering

Cole: Mr. McMahon has just been escorted from SmackDown and he may never return!

Tazz: I don't know what to say Cole, I'm speechless!

Cole: I'm just glad Stephanie's kept her job through this, she didn't deserve the wrath of her father just because he got embarrassed at back to back PPV's.

Shelton tags in Charlie Haas and the two go to work on Rhyno, beating him down in their corner, taking turns hitting him with right hands. Shelton then loads Rhyno up and hits a Pendulum Backbreaker, but holds him in position vertically across his knee as Haas hops to the middle rope and leaps off, driving an elbow to Rhyno's chest, who gets folded up like an accordion in the double team maneuver. Haas covers 1...2..kickout. Charlie Haas brings Rhyno to his feet and hits him with a right hand, only to have the Man Beast fight back with a shot of his own.

Rhyno begins to stir and manages to tag in Benoit! The Rabid Wolverine comes in and stomps on Charlie Haas' head, halting him from tagging out to Benji.

Benoit gets isolated from now on, with Shelton & Haas tagging in and out, showcasing why they're the champs and as Nick Patrick restrains Rhyno from coming to his partner's aid, Haas hits an Atomic Drop to Benoit, but leaves the Rabid Wolverine placed on his knee and Shelton scores with a Superkick to the jaw! Cover 1...2...Rhyno breaks it up. Just when all looks lost for Benoit, he catches a kick from Shelton, spins him around and takes him down with a German Suplex!

Rhyno is on fire here and he crouches down in the corner, stalking Charlie Haas who's getting back to his feet, ready to uncoil. Haas turns around and Rhyno charges in looking for the GORE...but Haas sidesteps it and sends Rhyno crashing shoulder first into the ringpost! Rhyno's shoulder smacks against the steel and Haas takes advantage and rolls him up with a Schoolboy 1...2...BENOIT MAKES THE SAVE!

The crowd erupts but Shelton's not the legal man and Haas clubs Rhyno from behind who staggers into Nick Patrick, knocking the referee to the outside. Haas attempts a Tiger Suplex on Rhyno, but it's blocked by the Man Beast, who then spins out of Haas' grip and plants him with a DDT. Rhyno readies himself for the GORE again when HE'S HIT FROM BEHIND WITH A STEEL CHAIR...BY MIKE AWESOME! The crowd is surprised and gives Awesome heat as Rhyno stumbles across the ring holding his back and Haas takes him down with a Small Package as Nick Patrick conveniently gets back into the ring and counts the fall 1...2...3!
Winners @ 10:29 - Team Angle
Charlie Haas raises his arms into the air and then rolls out of the ring to attend to Shelton who's still feeling the effects of the Gore.

The crowd jeers as Awesome slams the chair down and exits the ring as Chris Benoit slides in to check on Rhyno, glaring at Awesome who looks happy with what he's done


Cole: Mike Awesome just hit Rhyno with a steel chair and cost him and Benoit the match!

Tazz: And then he levelled him with the chair afterwards too Cole! What the hell was that all about?

Cole: I don't know but hopefully we'll find out.

-Commercials-

We join Josh Matthews backstage as he catches up with Mike Awesome


Matthews: Excuse me, Mike Awesome! Can you explain to us why you just attacked Rhyno with a steel chair?

Awesome turns around to Matthews

Awesome: You wanna know why I did it? It's simple. I don't like Rhyno, I never have. We go back, way back to the ECW days, and whilst not many people would know, but ever since the day he showed up, I hated him. I hated his attitude, I hated everything about him.

Awesome pauses for a moment

Awesome: So then when I came back to the WWE and joined the SmackDown! brand, who do I see? I see him. I see Rhyno. And that hatred returned. People said I needed to make an impact and get myself noticed, well Rhyno, how about that? Do you notice me now punk? Do you all notice me now?

Awesome smirks

Awesome: See I'm going to use Rhyno as a stepping stone. Chris Benoit's got the United States Title, and once I'm done with his buddy Rhyno, I'm setting my sights on him. And that, that's awesome (pun intended).

Awesome walks off as Matthews sends it back to ringside

Cole: Well we didn't have to wait long to find out why Awesome did it, he hates Rhyno Tazz.

Tazz: He sure does Cole, I know Awesome, we go back to the ECW days and he's one bad cat, but I can't help but feel he may have made a mistake in ticking off the Man Beast!

Cole: We have sold out the United Center here in Chicago tonight and Tazz, it seems that Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero are going to lock up again at Judgment Day for the US Title.

Tazz: All we need is confirmation from Stephanie McMahon but I'm sure she won't oppose that match Cole, after the show they put on for us last week.

Cole: Eddie Guerrero was quick to point on he was unlucky last week, but will he fair better on pay per view? I'm not so sure. Folks I've just been informed that Stephanie McMahon has approved and made it official. Chris Benoit will defend the US title against Eddie Guerrero at Backlash!

Tazz: Well you can never count out Eddie Guerrero and his sly ways, I'm sure he'll have a few tricks up his sleeve...

*WHO BETTER THAN KANYON?*

The crowd erupts with heat as Chris Kanyon makes his way to the ring. Kanyon, who went well towards making sure he was the most hated person on SmackDown last week, has a mic in hand and gets into the ring, looking ready to address us again

Kanyon: Thank you Chicago, you're too kind.

Kanyon grins a shit eating grin as the crowd boos heavily

Kanyon: Tonight is the night I show you all, I prove to everyone, himself included, that Stone Cold Steve Austin is past his prime.

Major heat

Kanyon: I know, I know it's something you all don't want to accept. Such a cult figure in the business, one of the best ever, but let's face facts, this is 2003, not 1998. Stone Cold made a mistake when he decided to not retire.

Huge "Asshole" chant breaks out

Kanyon: But it's ok, because once this match is over and Austin realises he should've forgotten about a comeback, you will have a new hero to cheer. And that hero is me, Chris Kanyon!

Loudest heat of the night so far

Kanyon: Because WHO BETTER THAN KANYON, to entertain and pr-

*GLASS SHATTERS*

The roof is nearly blown off without undoubtedly the biggest pop of the night as Stone Cold Steve Austin heads to the ring with the crowd going apeshit. Austin has those cold blue eyes locked on Kanyon as he gets into the ring and salutes the fans on all four corners of the ring, before coming face to face with Kanyon, who extends his arms to the side, as if to say "what's the problem?" as AUSTIN ROCKS HIM WITH A RIGHT HAND AND WE'RE UNDERWAY!

Match 3
Singles Match
"Stone Cold" Steve Austin vs Kanyon

Austin unleashes a flurry of right hands to Kanyon, beating him back to the corner where he continues to pound away until Kanyon's dropped down onto his backside, as Austin then stomps away, stomping a mudhole in Kanyon and walking it dry as JR would say. Austin then brings Kanyon to his feet and whips him to the ropes, goes for a clothesline, but Kanyon ducks under and rebounds off the opposite side, coming back into the Lou Thesz Press! The crowd erupts as Austin hammers Kanyon with more rights, then gets up and springs off the ropes and drops the Fuck You Elbow! Cover 1...2.kickout. Austin finally removes his jacket and throws it out into the crowd and then brings Kanyon to his feet, but Kanyon breaks free and rakes the eyes! Austin stumbles away holding his face and Chris Kanyon takes him down with a Russian Leg Sweep. Kanyon covers 1...2.kickout. Kanyon starts to control the match, as he locks a Sleeper Hold on Stone Cold. Austin battles back to a vertical base and fires an elbow to the gut of Kanyon, trying to get some separation, and then hits another one before rebounding off the ropes, only for Kanyon to take him down with a clothesline. Kanyon now climbs to the top rope and taunts the fans to huge heat before leaping off looking for a Guillotine Leg Drop...but Austin moves and Kanyon crashes ass first to the mat! Both men struggle back to their feet and trade blows, then Kanyon boots Austin in the gut and rebounds off the ropes, but Austin meets him and takes him down with the Slingshot Spinebuster! Cover 1...2...shoulder up. Austin now stalks Kanyon, readying to end the match and goes for the STUNNER...but Kanyon shoves Austin away and then meets him on the rebound off the ropes with a boot to the gut and hits the INVERTED SITOUT SIDE POWERSLAM! Kanyon hits the impressive move and covers Austin 1...2...Austin kicks out! Kanyon can't believe it and gets in Brian Hebner's face, asking for a three. Kanyon then turns back to Austin and waits as he pulls himself up and staggers around into a boot to the gut, Kanyon goes for the STONE COLD STUNNER...but Austin shoves him away, Kanyon comes back at Austin AND AUSTIN DROPS HIM WITH THE STUNNER! The crowd erupt as Austin covers 1...2...3!
Winner @ 6:38 - "Stone Cold" Steve Austin
The crowd erupts as Austin wins his return match, after giving Kanyon a fair ass kicking. Austin gets to his feet and calls for a few cold ones much to the delight of the crowd. Austin climbs the turnbuckle and downs two beers, then calls for two more and cracks them open, downing them too. Austin heads to the opposite of the ring and does the same with two more, then sees Kanyon struggling back to his feet and offers Kanyon a beer, which Kanyon skeptically looks at before taking it. Austin leads the drink off and skulls his beer as Kanyon attempts to down his BUT AUSTIN KICKS HIM IN THE GUT AND DROPS HIM WITH ANOTHER STUNNER! The crowd goes wild as Kanyon sprays the beer out all over the place as the move is delivered. Austin's music hits again and he heads up the ramp, saluting the fans


Cole: Oh hell yeah Stone Cold! He's back and he's just let Kanyon know he's far from being done!

Tazz: This is trademark Austin baby, beers post match and he even gave Kanyon one, though he seemed to think better of it and made a point to him.

Cole: Kanyon may need to rethink what he's been saying about Austin because if tonight is anything to go by, Stone Cold is well and truly back!

We return from the advert to the backstage area where Torrie Wilson is standing by

Torrie: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time, Hulk Hogan!

The crowd explodes as Hogan steps into the picture

Torrie: Hulk, in tonight's main event you're going one on one with one of the best in ring wrestlers in the history of this business, what are your feelings heading into it after what Kurt Angle did to you last week on SmackDown?

Hogan: WELL YA KNOW SOMETHIN' TORRIE. Kurt Angle made his choice last week, I went out there to give him advice, and he chose to ignore it. And I was ok with that, despite the fact I thought what he was doing was wrong, I wasn't gonna change his mind, and I accepted that. But then he and his buddies went and attacked me, and that I'm definitely not ok with.

Crowd starts a booming "Hogan" chant

Hogan: And then at the end of last week's show, he took me out with a steel chair. I was busted open, bleeding everywhere. The Undertaker and Brock Lesnar copped a beating too. I'm not exactly friends with those cats, but unlike Kurt Angle, I respect those two. I respect the hell outta them.

Hulk pauses

Hogan: Kurt Angle may be the finest in ring wrestler of all time, there's no denying he's brilliant, but I've faced more technically gifted opponents than myself before, hell, I've faced Kurt Angle before, last year in fact, and I know his game. I know what he's got in his bag. But the real question hasn't been asked yet.

Hogan takes the mic from Torrie

Hogan: And the question is Kurt, WHATCHA GONNA DO BROTHER? WHATCHA GONNA DO WHEN THE BUTTERFLIES IN YOUR STOMACH START TO FLUTTER, TWENTY THOUSAND SCREAMING HULKAMANIACS ARE CHEERIN FOR THE GOOD GUYS, WHATCHA GONNA DO WHEN HULK HOGAN RUNS WILD ON YOUUUUU?

Hogan rips apart his top to another mark out reaction as we fade to a commercial

The crowd erupts as Bradshaw & Faarooq head to the ring. The APA get into the ring and The FBI clear out as Bradshaw points his index finger up high as he mounts the top rope and Faarooq keeps an eye on the Italians

Match 4
Tag Team Match
The APA vs The FBI w/Nunzio

It's a hard hitting affair as the number one contender's to Team Angle, The APA, kick off things, beating Stamboli & Palumbo around for a while, with Bradshaw taking Stamboli down with a Fallaway Slam and covering 1...2.kickout. Faarooq gets tagged in and after muscling Stamboli around, suffers a double team thanks to Nunzio distracting Jimmy Korderas as Palumbo gets into the ring and they take Faarooq down with a Wishbone Split! Stamboli makes a clap sound as he hops out of the ring, implying that he tagged Palumbo in. From here Faarooq suffers a double teaming but manages to counter Palumbo's attempted Jungle Kick, taking him down with a Spinebuster! Faarooq tags into Bradshaw and as chaos ensues, Bradshaw avoids a Body Splash in the corner from Palumbo and then wipes him out with the CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL! Faarooq knocks Nunzio off the apron as Bradshaw covers 1...2...3!
Winners @ 4:23 - The APA
The Acolytes get the win and Bradshaw & Faarooq play to the fans as they head to the back


Cole: The APA are rolling towards Judgment Day with an impressive victory here over The Full Blooded Italians!

Tazz: No doubt Cole, Bradshaw & Faarooq looked good and they'll need to be on their game come Judgment Day to take the straps from Team Angle.

Cole: I gotta feel that The APA may be the team that ends Team Angle's reign Tazz, they've looked great since they returned.

-Commercials-

Back live and Torrie Wilson has caught up with The APA


Torrie: Bradshaw, Faarooq, in two weeks time at Judgment Day you will take on the WWE Tag Team Champions in Team Angle, what are you expecting from them?

Bradshaw: Well Torrie we've seen these guys since they came to the WWE, and we gotta admit they're damn impressive athletes. But we've got the experience on our side, and we've damn sure got the power, and come Judgment Day, we're taking those tag titles off them.

???: {Clears throat}

The camera swings around to see Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas walking towards The APA

Benjamin: Did I just hear you right? You said you're taking these {points to their titles} from us at Judgment Day?

Faarooq: You're damn right that's what he said.

Benjamin: See I don't think so. We can do everything better than you guys, simply because, we are better than you guys.

Bradshaw: Well then if you're better than us at everything, you'd surely beat us in a game of poker right?

Haas & Benji look at each other and shrug their shoulders

Haas: Sure.

Bradshaw: Well then how about you guys swing by next week and we'll have ourselves a game.

Benjamin: You got it. Just be prepared to fork over all your money, chumps.

Team Angle walk off as The APA smirk at each other

Cole: Well we all know Team Angle, much like their leader, think the world of themselves but I don't know if they'll enjoy that poker game next week Tazz.

Tazz: I gotta agree with you there Cole, they're obviously confident they can beat The APA at their own game though, so maybe they'll surprise us all.

*ASS MAN*

Billy Gunn makes his way to the ring to a decent pop. Mr. Ass plays to the crowd as he climbs the turnbuckle

*BASIC THUGANOMICS*

Out comes John Cena sporting a Detroit Pistons throwback which of course gets him major heel heat


Cena: Yo, cut my music!

Heat

Cena: Look at this clown, obsessed with his backside
This match is gonna be dominated by me, I'ma win in a landslide
You've gone from Rocker Billy to Mr. Ass and even Chuck's life partner
Man the only thing worse than a list of your gimmicks is a list of the Bulls point guarders!

HUGE cheap heat

I'm not a gimmick though, John Cena's keeping it real
Once the bell goes I'm gonna have to cover up incase you try and cop a feel
I'm not worried about you in the ring, I got this on lock
I'm worried because your next gimmick might involve an obsession with {crowd} cock!

WORD LIFE

Match 5
Singles Match
Billy Gunn vs John Cena

Gunn takes it to Cena at the start but Cena takes control of the match as he takes Billy to the outside and sends him into the steel steps. Cena then gets Billy back in the ring and plants him with the Protoplex before dropping the 5 Knuckle Shuffle and covering 1...2...kickout. Cena applies a Reverse Chin Lock on Billy Gunn, looking to drain his energy, but Mr. Ass keeps himself alive, fighting to his feet and then taking Cena down with a Back Suplex! Billy picks up momentum and goes to hit the FAME ASSER...but Cena moves and then plants Gunn with the FU! Cover 1...2...3!
Winner @ 3:26 - John Cena
Cena scores a win for the second week running, although looking much more convincing than last week's win over Rey Mysterio


Cole: John Cena gets his second win in two weeks Tazz, and amazingly, he didn't have to cheat to win tonight.

Tazz: Look Cole, the man did what he had to do to win last week. This week though, he was on top of his game.

We catch up with John Cena backstage now and he bumps into Rey Mysterio!

Cena: You're in my way little man.

Mysterio: Yeah, I know. I saw you just then John, surprised you didn't cheat this week too.

Cena: Please, I had you beat just like I beat the ass, of Mr. Ass tonight.

Mysterio: I don't think you could beat me fairly John.

Cena moves closer to Rey, not face to face, thanks to Mysterio being a midget, but as good as with Cena looking down and Rey looking up

Cena: Oh is that so?

Mysterio: Prove me wrong then. I want a rematch.

Cena: {Chuckles} You want a rematch? Why do you think I'm gonna agree to one?

Mysterio: Unless you wanna look like a coward?

Cena: Let's get one thing straight El Midgeto, John Cena is no coward, and I'll be glad to beat your ass again. Name the time and place.

Mysterio: Next Thursday night, right here on SmackDown!

Cena smirks and nods his head

Cena: Alright, you got yourself a rematch. Be ready to be the next victim of the F-U!

Cena does the "You Can't See Me" taunt to Rey and walks off as Rey seems happy he's got a rematch with Cena

-Commercials-


Cole: Welcome back folks, if you missed out just before the break, it seems Rey Mysterio and John Cena will be tying it up next Thursday night here on SmackDown! in a rematch from last week's encounter.

*LOAD VERSION 1*
*LIVE FOR THE MOMENT*


The Cruiserweight Champion, Matt Hardy, makes his way to the ring to heat from the fans. Hardy, accompanied by Crash like Shannon Moore was earlier, taunts the fans with his CW strap as he awaits his opponent

*YOU CAN RUN*

The crowd gives a decent pop as Billy Kidman heads to the ring. Kidman doesn't get much chance to play to the crowd as Matt Hardy jumps him as soon as he's in the ring

Match 6
Singles Match
Billy Kidman vs Matt Hardy w/Crash Holly

Hardy stays on top of Kidman for the majority of the contest, but Kidman manages to mount a semi comeback after some chain wrestling with Hardy, he leapfrogs the Cruiserweight champ's run in, then takes him down with a Cobra Clutch Bomb! Cover 1...2..kickout. Kidman mounts the top rope looking for the Shooting Star Press, but Crash gets up on the apron and distracts Kidman long enough for Matt Hardy to recover and Superplex Kidman down to the mat! Hardy covers 1...2...kickout. Hardy takes Billy Kidman to the corner and hits a couple of right hands to BK, then grabs him by the head and takes him down with a Bulldog! Another cover 1...2..kickout. Hardy now mounts the middle rope and leaps off looking for the Leg Drop...but Kidman moves and Hardy crashes and burns. Both men slow to their feet and just as it looks like Kidman's going to fight back, Crash gets on the apron and distracts the ref, allowing Hardy to hit a Low Blow on Billy Kidman! Hardy then turns around AND COPS THE GREEN MIST IN THE FACE FROM TAJIRI! Crash's distraction backfires as Tajiri snuck in and sprayed his green mist in Hardy's face. Matt is blinded and staggers around before Kidman takes him down with a BK BOMB! Cover 1...2...3!
Winner @ 5:34 - Billy Kidman
Kidman pins the champ and surely puts himself in the cruiserweight title frame too, and Tajiri's definitely got Hardy's attention too, as Crash attends to his stunned leader


Cole: Billy Kidman picks up the win over the Cruiserweight Champion!

Tazz: Well he's gotta thank Tajiri for the assist, sort of evening the playing field after what Crash did earlier.

Cole: Matt Hardy's got competition coming from all sides, so much for thinking he was on easy street after ruining Rey Mysterio's chances.

*HERE COMES THE PAIN*

The crowd erupts as the WWE Champion, Brock Lesnar, steps out on stage and bobs up and down as usual. He then breaks free from that and makes his way to the ring. Lesnar, dressed in trackpants and a "Next Big Thing" tanktop, has his WWE title slung over his shoulder. He leaps onto the apron and his pyro's go off, before he gets into the ring and receives a mic from Tony Chimel


Lesnar: You know, last week, I was in this ring, bleeding and unconscious thanks to a certain someone...

Heat as they know it's Angle

Lesnar: And it wasn't my next challenger for this {points to the WWE title} either, it was a jealous, relentless, no good son of a bitch called Kurt Angle!

Mixed reaction, some popping for the insult, others booing for the mention of Kurt

Lesnar: Now Kurt's been told time and time again that he's not getting a title shot right now, but that hasn't stopped him from continually getting in my way...

Lesnar pauses for a moment

Lesnar: But now it seems that he's got something else to focus on tonight, and that can allow me to focus my attention on The Undertaker!

Big pop for Taker

Lesnar: Undertaker, I know you've always been considered the man. You're a legend of this business, and I know how tough you are, you only have to look back to last year at Unforgiven, and then again at No Mercy to see we beat the hell out of each other. You sent me through the stage set at Unforgiven, I broke your hand before No Mercy, we bloodied each other in the Hell in a Cell.

Lesnar now leans over the ring ropes before continuing

Lesnar: But in the end, I came out on top. I had The Undertaker's number.

Brock smirks as he gets a mixed response

Lesnar: And I've still got it. I beat The Undertaker in the Hell in a Cell, in a way that no other superstar has managed to. Nobody has been so dominant over him, like I was in that match. I flat out kicked his ass.

Mixed reaction, more towards heat than a pop

Lesnar: So when people ask me, are you worried your title reign is in jeopardy, seeing as you're facing The Undertaker? I'm not worried. Because maybe it's about time people start to say that Brock Lesnar is the man in the WWE!

*ROLLIN'*

The crowd explodes as The Undertaker rides his Harley Davidson down to and around the ring, before parking it at the foot of the ramp and then getting into the ring. Taker and Lesnar have a momentary stare off before Taker grabs a mic

Undertaker: You're not worried about me Brock?

Lesnar: {Smirking} Not at all.

Taker laughs at that

Undertaker: Well you should be worried Brock. You're putting on this big man routine to hide it. Sure, you're right. You beat me at No Mercy last year. You have my number on that. And hell, I'm not afraid to admit, you did kick my ass in the Hell in a Cell.

Crowd is surprised to hear that

Undertaker: But I also remember I fought that entire match, with my right hand broken. Thanks to you. Because you couldn't beat me if I was 100%, like at Unforgiven the month earlier.

Crowd "Oooo's" at that as Lesnar gets a wry smile and moves closer to Taker

Lesnar: Oh I know I could, and deep down, I think you feel the same. Remember, you only have this title shot because of me.

Undertaker: You've got some nerve to come out and stand in my yard and run your mouth. Oh and if anything, you owe me, for all the times I've saved your ass from Team Angle.

Taker makes a good point

Undertaker: So you can talk the talk all you want, because come Judgment Day, there ain't gonna be any talking. It's just gonna be me and you, one on one, and there will be no more favours. No more assists. No more IOU's. And hear me when I say, I am taking the WWE Title from you. Coz when the big dog barks, you had better listen.

Undertaker drops his mic and looks to leave

Lesnar: Well why wait for Judgment Day then Taker? Let's find out, right now, who the man is!

Crowd pops

Lesnar gets right in Taker's face here as the crowd's anticipation builds, and Brock then raises the WWE Title up right in Undertaker's face, grinning and nodding. The two men talk some trash then step back AND HIT EACH OTHER AT THE SAME TIME! The crowd goes nuts as the two begin trading blows, Taker, Lesnar, Taker, Lesnar, Taker, Lesnar, Taker, Taker, Taker. The American Bad Ass and his soup bones prove to be the winner. Taker then shoots Lesnar to the ropes and takes him down with a Big Boot! Brock rolls to the outside to escape Taker's wrath, but Big Evil follows him out, only to be pulled into the barricade by Lesnar who was playing possum! Lesnar now begins to hammer away at Taker with right hands, pummeling him down. Brock then grabs a steel chair and folds it up, and DRILLS IT INTO TAKER'S GUT! Taker is doubled over and Lesnar WHACKS HIM OVER THE BACK WITH THE CHAIR! The Undertaker drops to his knees as Lesnar raises the chair high into the air and tells Taker "I just kicked your ass again" as he goes to SLAM THE CHAIR DOWN ON TAKER'S HEAD...BUT TAKER REACHES UP AND GOOZLES BROCK! The crowd erupts as Lesnar drops the chair and Taker gets back to his feet wincing, and then LIFTS BROCK INTO THE AIR...AND CHOKESLAMS HIM DOWN THROUGH THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE! The crowd breaks out into a "Holy Shit" chant as the WWE Champion is buried under the table rubble, and The Undertaker stumbles back against the ring apron, holding his ribs from the chair shot

Cole: OH MY GOD! The Undertaker just Chokeslammed the WWE Champion Brock Lesnar through the Spanish announce table!

Tazz: It's carnage out here Cole, things just got taken up a notch between these two!

Cole: Well after the confrontation last week and the words they just exchanged, it looked like something was about to happen, but boy did it ever! The Undertaker sends a loud and clear message to Brock Lesnar!

-Commercials-

We are shown a replay during the break of Brock Lesnar getting to his feet and being helped to the back by officials when

*VOODOO CHILD*

The crowd blows the roof off as Hulk Hogan walks out on stage, playing the air guitar before playing to the fans, who continue to give him a standing ovation. The Hulkster gives his shades to a Hulkamaniac at ringside before getting into the ring and begins to stretch

*MEDAL*

It's a strong heel reaction for Kurt Angle as he steps out on stage to the "You Suck" chants for the second time tonight. Angle stops on the ramp and points to the roof as his pyro shoots up behind him before he continues to the ring

Main Event
Match 7
Singles Match
Hulk Hogan vs Kurt Angle

The crowd is buzzing for this one as the two tie up and Hogan shoves Kurt down with ease! The crowd goes nuts and Angle is quickly up and again locks up with Hogan, and again Hogan shoves him to the mat. The crowd explodes as Hogan shows off the pythons to Angle, who's wide eyed in disbelief that Hulkamania is showboating and again comes at him, but gets rocked with a right hand. Hogan rocks Kurt with a second, then shoots him to the ropes and powers him into the air and showing off his strength, before slamming Angle down to the mat with the Military Press Slam! Hogan covers 1...2.kickout. Hulk whips Angle to the corner and looks to follow in, but Angle gets an elbow up in his face! Kurt then grabs Hogan and slams his head into the top turnbuckle. Angle begins to wail on Hulk with right hands. Angle leaves Hogan in the corner and takes the time to mock Hulkamania to huge heat from the crowd, but he takes too long as Hogan grabs him and throws him into the corner, unloading with knife edge chops! Hogan then rakes the back of Angle to a mark out reaction, before applying a front face lock and lifting Kurt up and bringing him down with a Suplex! Cover 1...2..kickout. Hogan looks to stay in control as he brings Kurt to his feet and shoots him to the ropes, going for a clothesline, but Angle ducks under and then takes Hogan down with a German Suplex! Kurt keeps the hands locked and takes Hogan down with a second, and then a third, completing the trifecta to Hulk! Angle covers 1...2..kickout.
From here, the Wrestling Machine takes control of the match and wears down Hogan's lower back area, stomping away at it and then driving a knee into it as he applies a Chin Lock. Hogan battles out of that and sends Angle to the ropes, but Kurt comes back with a big clothesline, taking Hogan down. Angle backs Hulk to the corner and again unloads with right hands, then takes Hogan down with a perfect Overhead Belly to Belly Suplex! Cover 1...2..kickout.
Angle stays in control as we have our final commercial break and return with Angle applying a waist lock to Hogan. Hogan gets the crowd behind him and again battles back to his feet and swings a reverse elbow to Angle, but Kurt avoids it and uses Hogan's momentum to spin him around and take him down with a Northern Lights Suplex, and bridge it with a pin 1...2..shoulder up.
Angle now climbs the top rope and leaps off looking for a Moonsault...but Hogan moves and KURT CRASHES AND BURNS! Both men down.
After Charles Robinson administers his count, both men fight back to their feet and Angle socks Hulk with a right, but Hogan comes back with one of his own to a huge pop! Hogan begins to tee off on Angle with right hands, only for Kurt to kick Hogan in the gut and break up the fight back. Angle then hits Hogan with a European Uppercut and takes him down with a Swinging Neckbreaker! Cover 1...2..HULK POWERS OUT! The crowd marks out as Angle hits Hogan with a right hand and Hogan NO SELLS IT COZ HE'S HULKING UP! Angle strikes Hogan again but it's futile as Hogan gets to his feet, blocks Kurt's next shot and rocks Angle with those RIGHT HANDS!~ again. Hogan sends Kurt to the ropes and catches him with the BIG BOOT! Hogan now cups his hand to the crowd who mark like fuck before he rebounds off the ropes and DROPS THE LEG DROP...OF DOOM!~ Cover by Hogan 1...2...ANGLE GETS HIS FOOT ON THE ROPES! The crowd can't believe it, Cole & Tazz can't believe it and Hogan damn sure can't believe it. Hulk points to Angle, motioning to do it again and the crowd of course want to see it as Angle struggles back to his feet, Hulk sends him to the ropes and meets him with another BIG BOOT...NO! ANGLE CATCHES IT, TRIPS HULK DOWN AND SLAPS ON THE ANKLE LOCK! Hogan is in tremendous pain and tries to fight it but can't and just as it looks like he'll tap, he is able to roll through and send Angle into the corner! Hogan gingerly tries to regain his footing but Angle is like a pitbull and takes him down and APPLIES THE ANKLE LOCK AGAIN! Hogan tries to grab the ropes but ANGLE PULLS HIM TO THE MIDDLE OF THE RING! Angle's got it locked in and Hogan has no where to go, he tries to counter like earlier, but Angle holds on! Angle rolls through it too and keeps the Ankle Lock applied and Hogan has no choice but to tap out!
Winner @ 12:45 - Kurt Angle
Kurt keeps the hold locked on until Charles Robinson breaks it up, and Angle gets to his feet victorious tonight


Cole: Kurt Angle wins, what a main event!

Tazz: Absolute rocketbuster Cole! Top stuff from both men!

Cole: In the end, Kurt Angle pulled it off, but Hulkamania showed he can still hang with the best of them tonight.

Angle celebrates his win and then heads to the back, still clearly unhappy he's not got a title shot, although this win will certainately have made a point as the show fades out

I understand the opening promo may not be well received but I felt that another McMahon family power struggle, much like a continuation of McMahon/Hogan, would be stale, and I just want to move on to fresher things. Anyways, all feedback will be returned when I get the time to do so, sso be patient if I don't get back to you straight away, coz I will.

Default Re: Renegade Presents: WWE 2003 - Now Go Home And Get Your Fucking Shinebox

Raw Review:

Opening Promo- Typical HHH beginning promo. Always claiming to be screwed over by his opponents. I thought it was a bit funny how he shows video evidence of Booker clearly accidentally kicking the referee and claims it as a purposeful kick. You keep Booker well in character when he says hes surprised he missed HHH's nose. I think the mentioning of Goldberg is gonna lead to a Triple Threat match between the 3 involved. You set up some good entertainment with Booker getting to decide HHH's partner. Im thinking Booker will choose Goldberg but who knows.

Tag Team Championship Match- I really didnt expect RVD and Kane to lose. They were like my favorite tag team back when they were champions so I hope you keep them as champs for a while. Not much to say about the match. RVD and Kane getting good momentum to pick up the win. I never thought Storm and Regal had a chance.

Rock Interview- I like how even though it's a summarized interview, you still maintain the ability to keep The Rock in character and still give that swag to him. Thats very good writing on your part. The concert should be comical.

Test vs D Lo- I thought Test would have it the whole way. This is really my first time reading your thread so Im guessing Test and Christian have had some encounters on previous shows. I think this is going to set up a big match in which Test is gonna be the victor. I like D-Lo but I just don't see him really having a push or anything like that seeing as this was a fluke win.

Maven/Evolution Encounter- To be honest I hate Ric Flair. I think he needs to just hang it up already. Even though the thread takes place in 03, Flair is still an old geezer to me. I like how Maven didn't show him any respect during this. I see Maven and Flair getting sidetracked in the big main event.

Dudleyz vs T and B- Good win for the Dudleyz. I am a huge Dudley Boyz fan and frankly miss them a whole lot since I don't watch much TNA. Winning with the 3D is classic and really shows the teamwork and chemistry between the two. I can see them and RVD/Kane having some good matches.

Rock Concert- This was a really funny/classic Rock type of promo. Always clowning around with the audience and basically crapping on the city. The midget showing up isn't that original to be honest, but Steiner coming in and hitting Rock really sets up some major heat between the two for next week.

Steiner vs 3MW- It seems like you're trying to show Steiner off as this big overpowering guy who isn't scared of anything. Which I think fits his character well. He wasn't afraid to attack The Rock and didn't back down from 3MW; coming out with an impressive win over the tag team.

Womens Match- I am not much of a fan of the divas division to be honest. I don't really have much to say about the match.

Main Event- Good quick start to the match. I like the decision to have Orton and Booker as the first in the ring. It's like Orton is the young gun that has to prove himself, and Booker is the champion, basically like the leader and is assuming his position of leader by going in first. Classic Jericho in jumping off the apron to not have to deal with Nash. Nash and Batista is interesting, too big men looking to overpower the other. When Flair is in the ring with Maven you really see the heat between the two, especially on Flair's side. Clearly the losses to Maven are getting to him and he's looking for any chance he can to get back at him. I love the way Goldberg comes into the ring with authority and momentum. It's exciting. I guessed that HHH would get involved in this. There was no way with both Booker and Goldberg in the match that he wouldn't interfere to help his Evolution buddies out.

Main Event Aftermath- Jericho let out some real anger on Nash. I wonder what we're gonna find out on the next Raw about Nash's health.

Really good show. interesting and everything. This was my first time reading your thread and it makes me want to read it more. Im gonna have the SD review for you later.

Raw Feedback


Honestly, I expected to hear from Triple H here tonight, simply because the no contest is obviously something that doesnít make him happy. The promo seemed alright, with Trips pretty much saying what he would, and I liked the way he was blaming everything on Booker T. Booker Tís crack about Triple Hís nose was pretty funny, I enjoy humor in BTB as long as itís not shit humor. I donít know if I like Booker trying to avoid Triple H, telling him he had his rematch, it just seems like something that a heel would do. I also feel as if Triple H deserves another shot because the match ended in a no contest, so I donít know, for me, it really feels as if youíve got the heel in the faces role and vice versa. Eric Bischoff was okay as well, pretty much doing everything youíd expect, and Iím a bit happier now it seems as if Triple H will get one more shot, as I do believe heíll win next week. One thing I wanted to add is that even though this was in recap, I enjoyed the constant reference to Triple Hís anger. This was a decent start to the show, but I wasnít a huge fan of the direction of the promo until Bischoff made an appearance.

No better way to open up the in ring action then with the World Tag Team Titles on the line, tbh. The match itself was a typical tag match really, nothing standout, but just solid action with four guys who can all throw down. This is a big win for Kane and RVD, as now they both get IC Title shots. Iím hoping you do your best to keep Storm and Regal relevant though.

The Rockís interview was alright, pretty basic, just providing some nice hype for his huge segment later tonight.

DíLo Brown has surprisingly picked up a couple of victories in this thread now, although for him to be even slightly entertaining, you need to give Teddy Long a good amount of mic time. I predicted last week that Christian was going to get involved with Stacy, and hereís the start of it in this match. For a mid card feud that doesnít mean all that much, Christian/Test now has the potential to explode after the kiss, so good work.

Since the beginning of this thread youíve been giving Maven a huge rub, having him always be involved in main event matches on Raw and what not. The situation with you using Ric Flair to get Maven over is rather clever, and this segment just continued things along nicely.

The Test segment was alright, nothing special, but it does the job, making the match for next week. At the same time, itís almost like Bischoff is doing a favor for the face by making this match, and thatís usually something he wouldnít do, unless the heel asked for it. If Christian and Bischoff didnít have some sort of plan all along for next week, Iím going to be, not disappointed but just a bit confused as to why Bischoff made the match.

I know you love The Dudley Boyz, so this is a nice win for them to keep them credible for your tag division. Iíd love if Thuggin and Buggin Enterprises didnít have to job though.

The Barracuda owns, besides that, nothing to really say. As you alluded to, just a typical Goldberg promo, which I guess does its job of hyping the main event.

Its Rock Concert time already? Maybe itís just because the shows in recap, but boy I feel like it has gone fast. The Rock started off pretty well, getting under the crowds skin as he would back in these days. I marked for the first song, I thought it was pretty well constructed, tbh. It seemed rather pointless for The Rock to ask about O Canada but then not sing it. Iím pretty sure he would have just sung his butchered version no matter what the crowd said. I wasnít a huge fan of the second song; it just felt a step down from the first one, which is kind of a shame. The Rockís cheap dig at Canadian water was nice. The third song with the dig at Steiner was back up to the quality of the first one, and it involved Scott Steiner so Iím happy. Meh, honestly it has happened so many times by this stage that I donít buy the whole mini 8insert random wrestler here* showing up to be laughed at, itís just old now. The real Steiner appearing and laying out Rock with the guitar was good for a number of reasons. Not only does it add more to their feud, which I thought was going to start to die down, but Steiner made a big impact after not even being mentioned last week. In my opinion, this was definitely needed.

This time Bischoff does a favor for the heel, putting Steiner in a match with 3 Minute Warning. Much more Bischoff like, imo.

As much as I like what youíre doing with Scotty Steiner at the moment, 3 Minute Warning simply should not have been made to look that bad. Steiner on the other hand has pretty much made up for his loss at Backlash tonight.

Rocky/Steiner confrontation next week equals ratings. (y)

Due to my worries earlier, I was happy you addressed this situation with Bischoff and Christian. Whilst I love how Bischoff has changed things up for RVD and Kane regarding a shot at Christian, I still thought the whole ďyou donít want him to find you backstageĒ excuse was a little weak. Iím glad you provided an explanation because it was definitely needed, but I just donít really buy it.

Simple booking here really. A nice win for Vickie, keeping her looking good, and with Trish being at ringside, it continues to build the tension between the two.

I thought the Chris Jericho interview was pretty good. He was arrogant and cocky, more typical stuff. If Jericho now is scared of Nash during the match, youíve captured his character perfectly. ;p

Iíve noticed you like to book a lot of these multi man tag matches, and tbh, I enjoyed this one. A good win for the heels, whilst the faces still donít look that bad, due to Triple Hís interference. Obviously, Trips taking out Goldberg and Booker is smart, as they are the two guys who are preventing him from getting the World Title at this stage. The continued brawl with Jericho and Nash was fairly epic, with Jericho showing a slightly sadistic side tonight as well. I really enjoyed the show ending like this, going out with somewhat of a bang.

Honestly, this show was okay, but nothing overly great. I had an issue with the opening segment, as well as some other stuff that I mentioned throughout the show. Raw in this thread has been pretty jam packed to, whereas this episode really felt like a filler show, maybe even to much of a filler show, and thatís why I didnít enjoy it as much as previous shows.

Smackdown Feedback

Much like with Raw, I think you chose the right thing to open up with, as I donít think we can have a much bigger segment then what McMahon has to say. Vinnie Mac was pretty good early on, complaining about what happened to him because of Steph. Stephanie was pretty solid on the mic too, simply saying everything that needed to be said in this situation. Kurt Angle interrupting was clever, and really added to the segment. Not only did the excitement pick up a little, but Angle hates Stephanie right now, so it all just fits in so well. Ugh, I hated seeing Linda McMahon, but I agree that another McMahon power struggle would be tedious. With that being said, the owner of the company getting kicked out of the arena is probably a little unrealistic. Besides that, not much I can complain about. The promo didnít set the world on fire, but it did its job nicely.

The tag team match was definitely a good contest, with both teams getting a fair amount of offense in. Once again, the finish with Mike Awesome interfering keeps everybody looking pretty strong, which at this stage, not knowing whatís going to happen with the tag division from here, is smart booking. As for Awesome, Iíve no idea why he attacked Rhyno. The only thing I can think of is perhaps a throwback to their old ECW days. Either way, the sooner we get an explanation, the better.

I think the Awesome interview was okay, but it could have been a lot better. Much like I predicted, youíve booked cleverly using their past ECW history as a link, however just hating somebody isnít enough. We need to know why he hates Rhyno, and I think that should have been explained here, as instead weíre still pretty much left in the dark.

A good win for Chavo, as he pretty much just beat two men. The fact that Guerrero beat Hardyís henchmen means that Guerrero is obviously going to be around the title scene now. I like the idea of this, the more competitive your division the better.

I enjoyed the meeting between Benoit and Eddie, and the way you played on them being old friends, it was extremely well done. A lot of people struggle to write both these guys as well, but yeah, I just thought you had their chemistry down really well. A match between the two at JD is something I like the sound of, although the two just shaking on the match isnít realistic at all. The last time I checked the wrestlers themselves couldnít just make matches. I just read the commentary where Tazz said they need confirmation from Stephanie so I now donít have an issue.

I mentioned it last week, but Iíll mention it again, I loved the way you used Kanyon last week, even if it will probably be finished after tonight. His promo tonight was pretty much the same as last week. Iím surprised Kanyon lasted six minutes, but this match was all about Austin looking good on his return.

The Hulk Hogan interview was alright, adding hype for tonightís main event.

I donít mind The FBI as a collective group, but ti doesnít seem like you have anything for them at the moment, so a smart thing to put The APA over.

I almost forgot that The APA had a title shot for JD; of course they had to squash The FBI. The APA didnít get to say much, which is good, because it would have been bland as. The poker match next week, better be in The APAís office, is sure to be a very fun read. Iím really looking forward to that segment.

Cenaís rap was on the ball again tonight. Damn, he gave it to Billy Gunn really hard, especially when mentioning all the gimmick changes and what not. This was probably the most lethal rap youíve delivered so far. Of course Cena was always going to squash Billy, nothing to really add.

Cena and Mysterioís interaction backstage was nice, setting up a cool match for next week. The El Midgeto call was pretty lame though.

This match did a lot for the Cruiserweight division, imo. Not only did it put Billy Kidman in title contention, but it put Tajiri on Hardyís radar. With Chavo Guerrero hanging around as well, all of a sudden, youíve got a lot of options to run with. My only issue is that your champion in Matt Hardy lost in five minutes, thatís a little to quick for a champion to lose for my liking.

Not that itís a big deal or anything, but I felt as if this segment is placed in a really weird part of the show. Anyway, Lesnar on the mic was alright, talking about Angle, as is expected after what went down last week. At the same time, after bringing up the issue with Angle, it felt weird for Lesnar to then just be like Iíll deal with that another time. Whyíd he bother bringing it up in the first place then? Lesnar started sounding a bit cocky, maybe a bit tweener like, the way he was bragging about ĎTaker. He didnít sound as if he had the respect that these two would have had between each other in previous weeks. The Undertaker interrupting and mentioning the broken hand was to be expected, and the brawl afterward was really good. The Undertaker could perhaps now be in Lesnarís head after the epic Chokeslam through the announce table.

The main event was really good, and I was happy that you allowed Angle to pick up the clean victory. If Hogan is going to stick around, this is exactly what he should be doing, just jobbing to guys that are better than him. This is a big win for Angle too, and Iím sure heíll let us all know about it, and the WWE Title situation next week.

Overall, I think not just because itís a full show, but also because with JD coming it feels like SD has more going on, but I enjoyed this show more than Raw. This show was good, not much wrong at all, except for a few tiny things I disagreed with. Good work with this one, mate.
