RAW News and Notes
Provided by the WrestlingObserver


-The fourth match of Backlash, Edge versus Jeff Hardy in a Ladder Match, was announced last night. With Backlash now being only 2 weeks away, expect 2 more matches announced, a World Heavyweight Championship Match and a World Tag-Team Championship Match. Writers want a World Tag-Team Championship match because they want to add fuel to the storyline that John Cena and Shawn Michaels will have to work together before they fight for the WWE Championship later on in the night. With there still being two RAW's to go, expect them to win next week before losing the RAW before Backlash, which would force them to have a title match at Backlash

-Randy Orton made his way back on RAW yesterday, albeit only in a small interview, but don't expect him to be doing a lot of wrestling for the next few weeks, with him most likely making his way out on the Draft. It's almost already stamped that Orton will not be appearing in a match at Backlash, although some think that will take down the buyrate a little with the lack of star power. It's almost guaranteed that he'll be moving over to Smackdown and become the top heel there and feud with Batista throughout the summer.

-Some within the company said that Edge was featured way too much last night, being in the opening segment, a backstage segment with Shannon Moore, and a match against Moore, but the main reason was because Edge is really the only top heel on RAW active, aside from Orton who made his return yesterday. They also needed to hardsell the feud between Edge and Jeff Hardy, so Edge taking out one of Hardy's close friends was the best decision. Don't expect the show to be as "Edge-heavy" in the future.

-Carlito's push continues to rise, with him getting a clean win over Johnny Nitro. Carlito is getting higher and higher marks in the company, and although Umaga is getting a huge push himself, don't be surprised if Carlito steals the Intercontinental Championship at Backlash. They want to move Umaga up the card, and they feel the Intercontinental Championship is too small for Umaga, so if Carlito gets a fluke win (a la roll-up) don't think of it as them burying Umaga. They have big plans for both men for the summer.

ECW on Sci-Fi
April 10, 2007


The normal music goes off to kick off ECW before "This Fire Burns" hits and one of the three men remaining in the Elimination Chase, CM Punk makes his way down the ring. Punk comes down and looks excited before entering the ring. He grabs a microphone from Tony Chimel and begins talking. He talks about how he, Rob Van Dam, and Hardcore Holly are going to come out here tonight and battle for their lives to stay in the Elimination Chase. He says that Hardcore Holly has the knowledge of a veteran to win this whole thing and face Bobby Lashley for the ECW Championship at Backlash. He says that Rob Van Dam has the whole crowd chanting his name which could will him on and face Bobby. But he says that both of them should know that he has never had a one on one matchup for the title, but he was going to be sure that HE was the one facing Lashley, not RVD or Holly. He says they both better be ready tonight, because he's not going to pull any punches. Punk starts walking off and puts one leg through the ropes before "One of a Kind" plays and Rob Van Dam comes down to the ring. Punk then goes back into the ring knowing they're gonna have a confrontation.

RVD says that Punks a cool dude and that he respects him for all of his "straightedge" talk, but he tells Punk that he wasn't just the longest reigning ECW Television Champion in the old ECW-days by accident. He knows what it takes to stay on top and knows how grueling it is to get there, something he, Punk that is, has never felt. That one hits a nerve of Punk, who says that he better watch what he says before he ends up like Snitsky did last week. RVD says he'll have nothing to worry about getting past you and... "How Do Ya Like Me Know?" plays before RVD can finish his words, and the third member of the Elimination Chase Hardcore Holly makes his way out to the entrance ramp. RVD and Punk don't take their eyes off of each other while Holly tries to get in some words. Holly says that while the two of them are busy arguing like a bunch of little schoolgirls, he's going to be the one to win and face Bobby Lashley. He notes that he has defeated both of them in singles matches in a span of three weeks in January, and he's 100% positive he can do it again, so they better be ready. Punk then grabs his microphone again and says that the best man should win then, and all three share stares with each other as ECW goes to commercial.

{Commercial}

ECW comes back to commercial with Brooke, who's with Elijah Burke, Marcus Cor Von, and Matt Striker. Brooke says that last week they defeated the ECW Originals in a 6-man tag-team match, but tonight they will get an unidentified partner to team with them to take on the Originals in an 8-man tag-team match. She asks Burke what he thinks of being given a random partner to team with them, and Burke says as long as the man stays out of our way, they'll be no problem, because they've had enough of the Originals, and said that their battles have dragged on long enough. Now, it's time for them to end. He says that next week, the New Breeds own Marcus Cor Von will take on any one of the members from the Originals, and then the week before Backlash, Burke and Striker will take on any pair of Originals in an Elimination Tables Match, with the feud ending once and for all. They then walk off to get ready for their match.

***

"Man in the Box" plays and the ECW Originals, Tommy Dreamer, Sabu, the Sandman, and Little Guido Maritado make their way down the ring for the 8 man tag-team match. They do their usual pre-match stuff before "Don't Waste My Time" plays and Elijah Burke, Marcus Cor Von, and Matt Striker, the New Breed, make their way down the ring to some minor heat. They stop right before they enter the ring and wait for their partner. "Death Grip" plays and Mike Knox comes out as the New Breeds partner. He quickly enters the ring and the match begins.

The match is your standard 8-man match, with the New Breed working on the Sandman throughout the beginning stages of the match, with Elijah Burke and Matt Striker using their chemistry with each other to work on the Sandman, constantly hitting him with tag-team maneuvers. Eventually, however, Sandman ducks a clothesline attempt from Striker and lands a DDT! Sandman can't get to his corner right away though thanks to him being out of energy from the attack. Both men are down and Striker is the first to get to his corner, tagging in Cor Von, while the Sandman gets a tag in to Sabu.

After a few minutes with numerous quick tags we get to the finish of the match with Mike Knox and Tommy Dreamer inside of the ring. Dreamer takes Knox out with a Dreamer Driver, surprising many that he could get Knox up on his shoulders, but then Cor Von interferes and lands a POUNCE on Dreamer! Dreamer then rolls out of the ring, but Sabu comes in and takes Marcus out with a double jump moonsault! Cor Von goes out, Striker then comes in and connected with the Golden Rule on Sabu! Sabu then leaves the ring and the Sandman comes in and wraps a kendo stick around Striker's neck before connecting with the White Russian Legsweep! Striker is helped out of the ring by the referee while Elijah Burke comes in and lands the Elijah Experience on the Sandman! Little Guido quickly comes in to try and help out his friends and lands a Kiss of Death, known to many as an Unprettier! Finally, Knox regains his composure and takes Little Guido out with the Desert Destroyer, a spinning reverse STO, before covering him for the win at 8:03.

After the match Burke, Cor Von, and Striker all come in and celebrate with their partner in his pinfall, while Sandman, Sabu, Dreamer, and Little Guido all start to walk off. Burke grabs the microphone from Tony Chimel and says that the Originals better savor the moment that they have with each other, because in two weeks, when the New Breed wins their Elimination Tables Tag-Team match, it'll be the last time the Originals will be standing inside of the ring with each other. ECW then goes backstage to the ECW Heavyweight Champion, Bobby Lashley.

***

Lashley is seen walking down a hallway into a room that has simply "Office" on the nameplate, before knocking and being told to come in. Lashley opens the door to reveal ECW's General Manager, Mick Foley sitting in a beat up chair in a room that isn't much bigger then a janitor closet, not much bigger either. Foley asks Lashley what he can do for the ECW Heavyweight Champion, and Lashley tells him that last week he wasn't involved in a match after his impressive victory at Wrestlemania, and he doesn't want to catch any ring rust before his match against Rob Van Dam, CM Punk, or Hardcore Holly for his ECW Heavyweight Championship, so he wants a match tonight. Foley says he can do that, and it will be against the man that was eliminated in the Elimination Chase last week, Snitsky. He tells him good luck and have a nice day as ECW goes to a commercial break.

{Commercial}

The announcing crew, Joey Styles and Tazz, come back on air and promote the currently announced card for Backlash, starting with the WWE Championship Match between John Cena and Shawn Michaels, saying that, while these two are also World Tag-Team Champions, they're going to be fighting for something much bigger on Sunday, one of the most prestigious titles in the WWE. They then talk about the Intercontinental Championship bout featuring the Samoan Bulldozer Umaga taking on Carlito, with them bringing up Umaga's dominance the past two weeks sending both Val Venis and Super Crazy to the hospital, but reminding everyone that Carlito has been under the wing of the Nature Boy himself and has picked up impressive victories as well against quality opponents.

They next go to the ECW Heavyweight Championship picture between the ECW Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley and one of the possible three men of Rob Van Dam, Hardcore Holly, and CM Punk. They say any of the three men could take the championship away from Bobby Lashley, but Lashley showed at Wresltemania that size doesn't matter when he defeated the monster Umaga. They then slightly promote the Ladder Match between Edge and Jeff Hardy, saying that the two have had past history of ladder matches between each other, going back to the days when they were both competing in the tag-team division, but now, more then ever, it gets personal with a number one contendership opportunity to the WWE Championship on the line. Something's gotta give, and they say that Backlash is just a few small weeks away, and that you won't want to miss it.

***

"Unglued" plays and the man first eliminated from the elimination chase, Snitsky makes his way down the ring. Snitsky gets a small reaction from the crowd, although many don't really give a fuck about the freak. He enters the ring and then "Hell Will Be Callin' Your Name" plays as the ECW Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley makes his way out to the ring. Lashley looks pumped up for his match, although I don't think many in the crowd are very anxious about the match. He enters the ring and hands his Championship to the referee before the match begins.

Lashley quickly shows off his strength early by taking the slightly bigger Snitsky down with a huge clothesline before Irish Whipping him and connecting with a fallaway slam! Lashley tried for the cover but Snitsky just kicked out at two. Lashley continued to show his dominance for the next few minutes by landing an overhead belly to belly suplex and a military press dropped into a powerslam before missing on a running clothesline and getting taken out by a clothesline from Snitsky. Snitsky then keeps Lashley grounded with a nerve hold on Lashley before landing a scoop slam, sending Lashley down hard to the mat. Snitsky then connects with a falling leg drop and covers Lashley for the pin, but Lashley just kicks out at two and three quarters! Snitsky then argues with the referee, claiming that the count was too slow for his liking, but the referee tells him that the count was fair and unbiased. Snitsky gives him an unapproved look on his face before turning around and meeting a SPEAR FROM LASHLEY! Lashley then covers Snitsky for the win at 5:59 in the short but quite competitve contest from Snitsky.

After the match, Lashley is awarded the ECW Heavyweight Championship by the referee, but then is quickly JUMPED BY SNITSKY! Snitsky starts laying a few pounds on Lashley's back before Irish Whipping him off the ropes but gets surprised by Lashley with a SPEAR! Lashley picks Snitsky up and lands him with a DOMINATOR before quickly disposing him out of the ring. Lashley then celebrates with his ECW Heavyweight Championship as Snitsky looks pissed off on the outside of the ring. Lashley is then seen cracking a smile at the frustrated Snitsky as ECW goes to a commercial break.

Draft video package... 3 weeks... it comes!


ECW comes back with Joey Styles and Tazz hyping up the draft show, telling all of the viewers that when the draft airs on the special 3 hour edition of RAW, anything can happen. Friends, enemies, partners, champions, challengers, heck even the announcers, can get moved from one brand to another. Just imagine the WWE Champion John Cena on the land of extreme, or the Deadman making his trademark walk down the aisle on RAW. Or how about the Heart Break Kid breaking hearts on Smackdown, or even the ECW Heavyweight Champion himself breaking backs on RAW. Anything can happen, and you won't want to miss it.

***

"How Do Ya Like Me Now" plays first as Hardcore Holly makes his down to the ring, which means that it's time for the Triple Threat Match that's apart of the elimination chase. He gives off a pissed off look that he almost always is wearing, like he doesn't give a rats ass about who he has to beat, or how, but he's going to get that title shot at Backlash. "One of a Kind" hits next and Mr. Tuesday Night Rob Van Dam makes his way out, much to the crowds pleasure. He does his "R-V-D" taunt before sliding into the ring and doing it again while Holly hangs out on the outside, not wanting to get into an altercation before the match begins. "This Fire Burns" hits last and the Straightedge Superstar CM Punk walks down the ring. He taps on his wrists and shouts "it's my time" to the crowd, who give him a little bit of an excited reaction. He nods his head and slides into the ring as the three men are announced by Tony Chimel. Every man is checked to see that they aren't carrying anything illegal before the match begins.

The match starts with CM Punk and RVD staring at each other, not even giving Holly the light of day. Holly gets pissed off and steps in between the two of them and says that they should stop being ladies and fight. RVD and Punk look at each other before they both deliver side kicks to the head of Holly, sending him down onto the mat, much like the famous Vengeance 2002 match between The Rock, the Undertaker, and Kurt Angle. Punk and RVD then look at each other as Holly decides to stay out of the action, before both Punk and RVD smile at each other and do a double suicide dive to Holly on the outside, taking Holly out again! For the next couple of minutes, RVD and Punk continue to work on Holly on the outside, knowing that there are no countouts in a triple threat match. The tables turn, though, when Holly ducks a side kick by Punk which connects on RVD straight in the jaw!

Holly quickly gets out of the way and Punk goes over to see if RVD is alright, but RVD gets up and delivers a side kick of his own to Punk, as if to tell Punk "it's on now", before sliding back into the ring. For the next couple of minutes it isn't really clear which man has the advantage, as Holly has it for a little bit when both men first enter the ring, then Punk gets the momentum, followed by RVD. The ending comes when Holly has Punk up in the Alabama Slam position but Punk slides down his back and starts rolling him up while RVD lands a springboard dropkick on Holly. Punk then puts Holly in a roll-up position and pins him for the win at 9:20!

Punk quickly gets up and gets onto the turnbuckle as he celebrates his win, getting his hand raised by the referee during that time, as RVD looks on, happy that he is still in the Elimination Chase, but somewhat displeased that Punk picked up the pinfall for the second week in a row when it was he, not Punk, that did all of the work to take out the guy that was eliminated, but Punk was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time. RVD quietly leaves the ring, somewhat disgusted, and we see Punk getting hyped up by both Tazz and Styles as ECW fades to black.

Quick Results:
-The New Breed & Mike Knox def. The ECW Originals (8:03)
-Bobby Lashley def. Snitsky (5:59)
-CM Punk def. Rob Van Dam & Hardcore Holly in a Triple Threat Match in the Elimination Chase (Holly was pinned; is eliminated from the chase) (9:20)

Friday Night Smackdown
April 13, 2007

Smackdown kicks off with a video recap from the main event on last weeks Smackdown, a no-disqualification match between the World Heavyweight Champion, the Undertaker, and the Animal Batista. It shows some of the highlights of the match before we get to the finish where Batista hits the Batista Bomb on Taker before the Undertaker's brother, Kane, makes his way out and takes out Batista to help his brother retain his World Heavyweight Championship. The video then ends with Kane giving a maniacal smile to Batista while the Undertaker celebrates his World Heavyweight Championship win.

Smackdown's opening music and video then play before we go the announcing team of Michael Cole and John Bradshaw Layfield, who discuss the actions of Kane at the end of the last Smackdown, with Cole wondering why he would help out his brother keep the title that he wants, but JBL applauding Kane saying that sometimes to get what you want you need to stoop to the lowest of levels, even if that means to help out the Undertaker. "I Walk Alone" then plays and the man that was defeated last week in the No-Disqualification Match, the Animal Batista makes his way out. He's not in a cheerful mood, and we all know why. He doesn't really acknowledge the fans, just wanting to get into the ring and letting it all out. He grabs a microphone from Justin Roberts and starts talking.

He says that he can barely hold in his anger right now. He says that he wasn't beaten by the Undertaker, he was beaten by his no good piece of garbage brother Kane. He says he was only seconds away from beating the Undertaker, but the coward had his brother help him keep the title. He's sick and tired of all the bullcrap going on between the two, and he wants them both inside of the ring so he can take them out and take what's rightfully his - the World Heavyweight Championship. He says that they're either going to come out here or he's going to go back there and take them out. Batista waits for a little bit until "Slow Chemical" plays and the Big Red Machine Kane walks down the ring.

Kane says that the voices in his head told him to do it, they told him to help out his brother and take out Batista, but he didn't want to do it. Batista asks him what the hell he is talking about, but Kane says that the voices are killing him on the inside and that he needs to let them out. Kane then gets down to his knees and starts screaming while holding his head, and Batista backs off on Kane, wondering what's going on. Kane then gets back up and says that didn't mean for Batista to lose his match, but the voices made him do it. "McMillant" then plays as Smackdown's General Manager Theodore Long makes his way down the entrance ramp. He says that he doesn't care what the voices were telling Kane, or what Batista wants to do to the Undertkaer, all he cares about is having a number one contender to face the Undertaker at Backlash. So tonight, Batista is going to go one on one against Kane in a Number One Contendership Match for the Undertaker's World Heavyweight Championship. Batista is smiling as Kane is still holding his head when Smackdown goes to it's first commercial break.

{Commercial}

Smackdown comes back from commercial with Cole and JBL hyping up the already announced matches of the night, including Jimmy Wang Yang and Shannon Moore versus Gregory Helms and the Cruiserweight Chamion Chavo Guerrero in Cruiserweight tag-team action. Also, Montel Vontavious Porter taking on the United States Champion Chris Benoit in a non-title match. The WWE Tag-Team Championships are also going to be on the line as the Champions Paul London and Brian Kendrick face William Regal and Dave Taylor. They then hardsell the Number One Contendership match between Kane and Batista, being announced just minutes ago, as they talk about Kane screwing Batista out of the World Heavyweight Championship last week. "Gonna Punch Someone Tonight" then plays and the tag-team of Jimmy Wang Yang and Shannon Moore make their way out to the ring. While the two are making their way down the ring the production crew shows a replay of last weeks match between Yang and Daivari where Wang Yang rolls up the tights for the win before going to the top rope and telling Chavo Guerrero, who was at ringside doing commentary, that he wanted the title.

"It's Time" plays next and Gregory Helms makes his way out. The former Cruiserweight Champion has a somewhat uneasy look on his face, which JBL comments that it's probably that he has to team with the man that ended his over yearlong reign as Champion, despite them working it out in the past few weeks. "Chavo Ardiente" plays last and the Cruiserweight Champion Chavo Guerrero makes his way down the ring. He has his poncho on and rips it off while on top of the turnbuckle before unstrapping his belt and handing it to the referee. The cruiserweight tag-team match then begins.

The match is hot the whole way, although the majority of the crowd doesn't seem to give a fuck. The finish comes when Jimmy Wang Yang tries to hit the Yang Time (moonsault), but Chavo rolls out of the way and Yang crashes and burns! Chavo then goes to the top rope of his teams turnbuckle and looks to land the Frog Splash, but just as he jumps off, Helms tags himself in! Guerrero lands the Frog Splash, but Helms quickly dumps Guerrero out before covering Yang himself for the win at 7:27. Helms celebrates his win inside of the ring while Chavo goes and storms off with his Cruiserweight Championship.

***

A video package then plays, and it's showing Rey Mysterio, who is talking about his rehab schedule, and how he was devastated to be kept off the Wrestlemania 23 card. He says he's doing great in rehab, according to the doctors, and that he's expected to return at Judgment day. Mysterio ends it by saying, that when he returns to Smackdown, he's going to take the whole brand by storm.

***

Smackdown then goes backstage to Maria, who's with The Miz. The Miz receives some heat, little, but some, from the fans who just see him as an egotistical douch. Maria asks him what he's doing here, and he insults her before saying that he has a match tonight. She asks him what he's planning on for his match tonight, and he says he doesn't need any planning to do, because he's gonna walk right through his opponent. He then goes and starts talking about Rey Mysterio and says that all the attention that the little Mexican receives is undeserving. He doesn't belong in a wrestling ring, he belongs in a field working like the rest of his family. Guys like the Miz, however, should get star treatment because he's...AWESOME! He then walks away as Smackdown goes to commercial.

{Commercial}

Smackdown comes back on air as "Reality" plays and the Miz makes his way down the ring for his match. The Miz enters the ring as his opponent Blake Smith is already in the ring. The match is nothing more then a quick squash match to put the Miz over, with the Miz quickly ending the jobbers hopes of pulling off the upset after hitting the Mizard of Oz at 1:44. After the match, the Miz grabs the microphone from ring announcer and says that if Rey Mysterio thinks he's rehabbing so quickly, he should come out to the ring next week to face him in a match because he is the Miz and he's...AWESOME!

***

We then cut backstage to King Booker, who's with his wife Sharmell. A production crew worker is shining his boots as he and his wife are taking a sip of champagne. He tells Sharmell that tonight is a remarkable night for them, because since he took out that rat Matt Hardy last week, they can feast like the royalty they are without any disturbances. Booker shines up his crown, which is seated on a pillow, before having the worker place it perfectly on his head. Booker then has the crew worker put on his rings before forcing the worker to kiss them. Then he pushes the worker out of the view and then the king and queen continue to feast as Smackdown goes to a commercial break.

{Commercical}

Smackdown comes back on with a video package promoting the draft which is going to be a three hour special in a few short weeks on RAW. They say that there will be cross branded matches between all three brands with it being capped off with a 15 man Battle Royal with the winning brand receiving TWO draft picks. The draft changes everything, and you won't want to miss it.

***

"I'm Comin'" hits as Smackdown comes back to the arena and Montel Vontavious Porter makes his way down the ring. He comes out of his football-esque tunnel and has his pyro off before he comes down the ring. MVP enters the ring and bounces off the ropes a few times before doing his "Ballin!" taunt. "Whatever" plays next and the United States Champion Chris Benoit makes his way out, with the United Stats Title wrapped safely around his waist. He walks down to the ring with a cold look on his face before raising his United States Championship up in the air. The match then begins.

The match, much like the opening contest of the night, is a tight one throughout. Benoit has the advantage early, showing his "no tolerance, fuck you" type attitude with some firm chops to the chest and then landing 3 German's in a row. MVP then gets the advantage when he rolls out of the way of a Diving Headbutt attempt before working on the head of Benoit. The two then battle it out for a few more minutes, nearly reaching the ten minute mark, before we reach the end where Benoit hits the Diving Headbutt after ducking MVP's Playa's Boot attempt. Benoit then grabs MVP's arm and tries to lock in the Crippler Crossface and...DOES! MVP is seconds away from tapping before he turns on his back and puts Benoit in a pinning position without Benoit even knowing! MVP gets the three count and the surprise victory at 9:51 before Benoit can even realize what happened! MVP then gets out of the ring and goes over to the ring announcer before grabbing Benoit's United States Championship and raising it over his head. Benoit gives him another stone cold stare as Smackdown goes to commercial.

{Commercial}

A video package plays, and we see a man and a woman sitting in a movie theater. Most of the people around them are weeping at the movie, but these two people can't stop laughing at how pathetic the protagonist is. Everyone tells them to be quiet, but the man tells them that he's a future WWE Champion, and that he, Johnny Jeter, and his wonderfully sexy girlfriend, Maryse, don't have to listen to you fools. They then comment at how horrible the movie is and start throwing popcorn at it before standing up and getting in the way of the film so no one else can see the movie. The couple continue to yell at some people who are trying to enjoy their movie as the video ends with... 'Fabulous' Johnny Jeter and Maryse debut... next week on Smackdown!

***

"Rule Brittiana!" plays as the challengers to the WWE Tag-Team Championships, The Bluebloods, William Regal and Dave Taylor make their way down the ring. The two last had a title match on the January 12th edition of Smackdown, and they know their chances may be running out, at least their facial expressions make it out to seem like that. They wait for their opponents, and "Hey You" plays with the WWE Tag-Team Champions, Paul London and Brian Kendrick make their way out, sprinting down to the ring. They do their backflip off of the turnbuckles and hand the referee their titles before the WWE Tag-Team Championship match begins.

The match, for the most part, doesn't live up to the expectations that people had going into the match, considering who was in the match. Taylor makes a few noticeable botches early in the match, getting too high on a clothesline on London and falling short on the diving crossbody attempt on Kendrick. Regal and London tried to get the fans back into the match by doing the aerial vs. in-ring technician story, but it only made the match drag out even longer. The match finally comes to a close when Regal attempts a brass knuckles shot on Kendrick while Taylor is busy distracting the referee, but Kendrick ducks it and quickly lands the Sliced Bread #2 on Regal for the win at 8:23 to retain their WWE Tag-Team Championships! After the match, Regal is seen chewing out Dave Taylor on the outsdie while London and Kendrick celebrate their victories. As the two are celebrating the camera's go backstage to Batista, who's getting ready for his upcoming match.

Batista is shown strapping up one of his knee pads as we hear a knock on the door and Batista tells them to come in with a nonchalant tone of voice. Batista looks up and no one is there, until the lights go out for just a second. When the lights come back on the World Heavyweight Champion, The Undertaker, is seen looking face to face at Batista. Batista asks him what he wants, and the Undertaker says that Batista better not hurt his brother. The Undertaker tells him that he will face the consequences from the Lord of Darkness if he hurts Kane tonight. Batista says he doesn't know what's going on between them (referring to the Undertaker and Kane), but tonight he's going to beat Kane in the middle of the ring, and at Backlash he's going to take him (the Undertaker) out. Batista then leaves as Smackdown goes to another commercial break.

{Commercial}

Smackdown comes back on air and we see Smackdown General Manger Theodore Long sitting in his office chair. Long is busy looking at some papers when he hears a knock on the door, he gets out of his seat and opens it, and comes in is Mr. Money In The Bank Mr. Kennedy. Long asks Kennedy what he can do for him, and Kennedy asks Long why he isn't wrestling in a match tonight when losers like Jimmy Wang Yang, Shannon Moore, William Regal, Dave Taylor, and Chris Benoit are. Long says that all of those guys were deserving of a match tonight and didn't bring him the attitude like Kennedy did. Kennedy says that his attitude shouldn't matter because he is Mr. Money in the Bank and is already twice the star that any of those guys will be.

Long says Kennedy better watch his mouth before he really makes Long mad. Kennedy says he doesn't care if he makes him mad, because there is nothing that Long can do to make him shut up. Long tells him that, actually, there is. He says that since he is the general manager, that he can make any match that he wants and that Kennedy is going to be wrestling next week on Smackdown. Kennedy grins, but Long says that since Kennedy had to tarnish Long's image, he's going to face the Fighting Irishman Finlay. Also, just to make things a little more interesting, Finlay can hit Kennedy with anything and cannot be disqualified, but if Kennedy gets himself disqualified or counted out, he will be forced to forfeit his Money in the Bank Briefcase to Finlay. Kennedy's smile quickly fades away as Long shows him the door.

***

"I Walk Alone" plays and that means it's time for the main event number one contender's match. Batista makes his way down the aisle in his ring gear and hits his pyro before entering the ring. He seems pumped up for the match, despite the words from the Undertaker before the match. "Slow Chemical" hits next and the Big Red Machine Kane slowly wobbles his way down the ring. Kane enters the ring and has his red pyro go off, before looking up at the arena and laughing, with no one knowing what the hell he is doing. Referee Charles Robinson then rings the bell as the match is underway.

While many people praised the match between Taker and Batista at Wrestlemania, and with many others giving the match last week between Taker and Batista high reviews, this match just doesn't really click with the fans. For the majority of the match, Kane and Batista are busy trying to take each other down with strikes, but with Kane's slower gear he's running in, the punching segments seem to drag. Once the finishing stretch comes business starts to pick up, with Kane hitting a diving clothesline before signalling for the chokeslam. He wraps his hand around Batista's neck, who starts to panic and just gets out of the hold with a kick to the gut, second before Kane attempts to pick him up. Batista then runs off the ropes and lands a SPEAR on Kane. Batista covers Kane for the pin...but Kane grabs the rope to break up the hold!

Batista can't believe it and puts Kane's head between his legs before he lifts him up and CONNECTS WITH A BATISTA BOMB! Batista is about to cover...BUT THE LIGHTS GO OUT! Nobody knows what the hell is going on, and when the lights come back on, both Kane and Batista are down and out on the ground! The referee, confused, has no choice but to begin counting them both out! He reaches 8 before Batista starts to regain consciousness, and just before Batista can pick himself up, the referee reaches 10... and the match is declared a draw at 11:02! Batista gets up and can't believe the announcement by ring announcer Justin Roberts and gives Kane a Batista Bomb for good measure as Cole and JBL wonder what happened to the two men. Smackdown then fades to black.

OOC: I know the Miz/Mysterio angle seems somewhat like the current Cena/Miz angle, but I wanna assure you that I did not mean to copy the storyline from the WWE. It just felt like the best way to plant the seeds for the feud between the two.

Default Re: WWE 2007: The Year of Redemption


Monday Night RAW
April 16, 2007

"Wanna Be Loved" plays and the usual pyro goes off to kick off RAW. We are introduced by our commentators, Jim Ross and Jerry 'The King' Lawler, who promote the next test for the World Tag-Team Champions, the men from the hood known as Cryme Tyme. They also talk about Edge and how he's taking on another close friend of Backlash opponent, Jeff Hardy. They then talk about how Randy Orton announced last week that he was having a sit-down strike here on RAW, and that they wonder what the 'Legend Killer' would need for his strike to stop from happening. But before all of that, "Cool" hits and number one contender for the Intercontinental Championship, Carlito makes his way down the ring along with his mentor, Ric Flair. Carlito is getting some tips whispered into his ear from Flair as the duo make their way down the ring. "Masterpiece" plays next and Chris Masters makes his way down the ring for his match against Carlito. He slides into the ring and does his Masterlock taunt to Carlito then the match begins.

The match is very back and forth from the beginning, something that is good to kick off a show. Mid-match Masters has the Masters-lock locked in on Carlito, who's about to tap, but just before he does, Flair shouts for him to grab Masters' head, and Carlito grabs Masters and flips him over his own head. The finish comes when Masters puts Carlito up in the air in Military Press Slam position and attempts to throw him up and have him crash and burn on the canvas, but when Masters throws him, Carlito lands on his feet and quickly grabs Masters' back to land the backstabber for the win at 8:20.

After the match, Flair enters the ring with a microphone and says that Umaga is going to get a preview of his title match next week on RAW when he faces the Nature Boy with Carlito by his side and that he's going to find out that he's counting all of his chickens before they hatch because the Nature Boy is going to pin him in the middle of the ring, then Carlito is going to do the same at Backlash. Carlito then grabs the microphone and says that only cool people can hold the Intercontinental Championship, and Umaga...he's not cool. Umaga and Armando Alejandro Estrada then appear on the titantron, with Umaga looking supremely pissed off. Estrada calms him down and says that Umaga accepts Flair's challenge for next week, but it will be contested inside of a STEEL CAGE! Umaga shows a freakish smile before the pair disappear from the titantron. Carlito and Flair look at each other with a little bit of fear showing from Carlito's face, not wanting his mentor to be seriously hurt next week. We then go backstage to Kelly Kelly and her interviewee.

***

Kelly welcomes everyone before introducing the "Rainbow Haired Warrior" Jeff Hardy. She says that Jeff was in the hospital last week with a concussion, and, although he isn't medically cleared to wrestle for another two weeks, he's still here today, and she wonders why. Hardy says that Edge may get him at Backlash in a ladder match, but if he believes that he's going to take out his friends on his way there, he's dead wrong. Because he's not a fan of a guy beating up another guys' friends for something that didn't even involve them. He might not be able to get revenge on Edge here tonight or next week, but he's making it known to Edge that he's watching him and all of the damage that he does to his friends these next two weeks will be avenged when they step inside of the ring at Backlash. Hardy then leaves as RAW goes to it's first commercial break of the show.

{Commercial}

"Da.ngr" plays and out comes The Great Khali, along with his manager and mouthpiece, Ranjin Singh. The Highlanders, Robbie and Rory McAllister, are already inside of the ring, which is announced as a 2 on 1 handicap match. The match begins, but it doesn't last very long, as Khali quickly disposes of Robbie with a brain chop and then pins Rory after a Khali Bomb at 1:39. After the match, Ranjin enters the ring with a microphone and Khali shouts something into the microphone, translating it for the crowd. He says that Khali says that the lack of competition on RAW is too weak for Khali, and that the Great Khali should be WWE Champion right now, not John Cena. RAW General Manager Johnathan Coachman then appears on the titantron and agrees with Khali, saying that his dominance of the Highlanders showed him something, and that's that next week on RAW, he will face the champion -- United States Champion, that is. Coachman said he has reached a one match deal with Smackdown General Manager Teddy Long which allows the United States Champion, Chris Benoit, to appear on RAW to face any opponent, and since Khali feels so confident, we'll see how he feels next week after his match against the Canadain Crippler. He then appears off screen as Khali and Ranjin actually appear happy that they're getting more of a challenge. We then go backstage, to the Legend Killer himself, Randy Orton.

***

Orton is backstage with a picket sign that says "COACHMAN = JOKEMAN", with someone really unfunny from creative thinking of that sign. Also, surprisingly, shown striking with Orton are Kenny Dykstra, Johnny Nitro, and the Redneck Wrecking Crew. Wow, what a group, Orton. Kelly Kelly comes over and asks Orton what they want, which Orton responds with by holding up a megaphone to his mouth and shouting "What do we want?" into it, with the other strikees replying with "To be treated fairly". Orton then continues with "When do we want it?" and the strikees replying with "Now." Orton then grabs the microphone from Kelly Kelly and says that if Coachman wants them all to stop parading and striking around here, then he better do something by the end of tonight's RAW, otherwise there's going to be hell to pay. RAW then goes to commercial.

{Commercial}

RAW comes back on with a video package promoting the draft, which is to be a three hour special in two weeks, with the supplemental draft held on WWE.com the following Wednesday. They say how there could be Smackdown's Highest Paid Superstar going to the Land of Extreme, or how the Straightedge Superstar could go on RAW and press his views, or even the 16 Time World Heavyweight Champion could go toe-to-toe with wrestlers on the blue brand. All of this and more you'll witness in just two weeks time, right on a special 3 hour edition of Monday Night RAW.

***

We then come back to the announcers booth of Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler, who are shown promoting the RAW matches for the upcoming pay-per-view, Backlash. They start with the Intercontinental Championship match between the Samoan Bulldozer Umaga and Carlito, with it getting heated up today with the announced match between Umaga and Carlito's mentor, Ric Flair, being held inside of a steel cage next week. They say that Flair may have beaten the Steamboats, Stings, Savages, Funks, and Hogans before, but his match next week is important to both him and Carlito, because if he's not there at Backlash, that changes the whole match for Carlito. They then switch gears to the Ladder match for the number one contendership of the WWE Championship between Jeff Hardy and Edge, which started at Wrestlemania 23 when Hardy took out Edge with a leg drop through a ladder, and then got even more heated the next week on RAW when Edge took out Jeff Hardy with not one, but two Con-Chair-Tos to the head. Hardy has since not been medically cleared to wrestle since, and won't be able to wrestle in a match until Backlash.

They then finally switch gears to the WWE Championship match between the Champion John Cena and Shawn Michaels. They talk about the epic battle the two had at Wrestlemania 23, and now, with them also being tag-team champions, the tensions even raised higher. They say that Cena has held the title for a remarkable 8 months, but that streak is going to be on the line Sunday when the title's up for grabs between the Champ and the Showstopper.

"The Time is Now" then plays as the current WWE Champion and one half of the World Tag-Team Champions, John Cena makes his way down the ring. He comes down with his usual attire on, jean shorts and one of his t-shirts that can be found on WWE.com, but instead of being pumped up as usual, Cena seems more focused, more determined, more...angry. Cena walks into the ring and grabs a microphone from Lillian Garcia and begins talking, saying that last week, he was fooled. He thought Shawn wouldn't Sweet Chin Music him for another week, but I guess he had other plans. So he tells Shawn "bravo", for as big of a backstabber as Cena knows Michaels to be, he still didn't expect to be hit with the Sweet Chin Music last week. He says that if Michaels thinks he's going to be able to do it again and get away with it, even if they're tag-team champions, he's dead, dead wrong.

Cena then hands his microphone back to Lillian Garcia as "Sexy Boy" hits, with the other half of the World Tag-Team Champions Shawn Michaels making his way down the aisle. Shawn, despite what Cena said just seconds ago, appears in a somewhat happy mood, giving the crowd some high fives, before going into the ring and doing his usual pray to the sky with his pyro going off. He then hands his championship to the referee as "Bringing Tha' Hood To U" plays and the next challengers for a chance to fight Shawn Michaels and John Cena for the World Tag-Team Championships make their way down the ring, known collectively as Cryme Tyme. The two seem to make a quicker way down the ring, trying to make up some of the time that they lost with the drawn out entrances of Cena and Michaels. They slide into the ring and the match is quickly started.

The match is a little more competitive even then last weeks encounter between Cena and Michaels versus the Redneck Wrecking Crew, with Cryme Tyme at one point hitting their finisher, G-9, on Cena, only for Cena's leg to be on the bottom rope. Eventually, the end comes when Michaels dodges a running Big Boot by Shad, and quickly blindsides him with a Sweet Chin Music at 7:01 to turn down another team's chances. Michaels then is handed his World Tag-Team Championship by referee Mike Choida as Cena enters the ring and gets his WWE and World Tag-Team Championship handed to him, and the two's eyes meet. HBK drops his World Tag-Team Championship, which was initally on the palm of his hand, on the ground, while Cena sets both of his down on the ground as well. The two give out hard stares to each other before they take a step closer and are now face to face. The tension is rising and everyone, as noted by Jim Ross, is feeling it. Cena mouths something to Michaels, and Michaels mouths something back, before HBK takes a step back, looking like he's going to leave Cena alone, but instead LOOKS FOR A SWEET CHIN MUSIC... BUT CENA DUCKS OUT OF THE WAY! HBK then quickly gets turned back over by Cena, who places Michaels on his shoulders and CONNECTS WITH AN F-U! He then does his traditional "You Can't See Me" taunt before grabbing his titles and leaving the ring with Shawn looking up into the arena. RAW then goes backstage.

***

We are again taken to the strikers of Randy Orton, Kenny Dykstra, Johnny Nitro, and the Redneck Wrecking Crew. Orton now has a new pickett sign that says "WANT A TITLE SHOT? -- JUST ASK COACHMAN". Man, that's even more creative then the first sign (). Orton grabs a microphone from the cameraman and says that Coachman now has less then 30 minutes to answer his and his strikees calls unless he wants to be remembered as the General Manager that couldn't control his superstars. He then continues with his "What do we want?" chant as RAW goes to commercial.

{Commercial}

RAW comes back with a video package of one man with a whistle in his mouth, presumably the coach, and the other man doing pushups, which the coach counts up "73...74...75" he then tells his student to stop as the camera's are on them. The coach says that this is his prized prospect, Jake Hager, a former all-american wrestler in college. He says that he found him wrestling a few years ago, and now it is time for them to show their ability as superstars. The man reveals himself as Coach Nick, who remarkably looks like that of Eugene, who was written off just weeks ago (). Coach Nick says that he and his super athlete will debut in a few weeks, and eventually everyone will know the name of the All American Crew. Nick then tells Jake to get doing some squat thrusts if they want to make it to the big time, and Hager nods, as the video package ends with The All American Crew... Coming Soon to RAW!

***

"Virtual VooDoo" plays and the 'Samoan Bulldozer' Umaga, along with his manager, Armando Alejandro Estrada, make their way down the ring for Umaga's match. His opponent, "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, is already in the ring, with his 2 by 4 on the ground near him. Umaga enters the ring as the match begins. The match doesn't last long, with Umaga dominating the whole match throughout, with him showing his dominance for next weeks cage match against Ric Flair. Umaga lands all of his signature moves before finishing Duggan off at the 3:48 mark with a Samoan Spike and the win. Umaga then lets out a huge heap of satisfaction, with Estrada entering the ring to celebrate, also with a small piece of barbed wire in his hand. Estrada tells Umaga to wrap it around his finger and hit the Samoan Spike on Duggan, which he agrees to, sending a barbed wire covered thumb into the neck of Duggan! Duggan, for the second week in a row, is check up on by the referees, this time being taken out on a stretcher, as RAW goes to commercial with Umaga and Estrada gazing on their great work.

{Commercial}

Raw comes back on air as "You Think You Know Me" plays and we see the Rated-R Superstar, Edge, finally make his appearance on RAW. He smirks as he walks down the ring, knowing what Jeff Hardy said about him earlier, although Hardy can't do anything about it. "It's Time" then plays next and
Smackdown superstar Gregory Helms makes his way down the ring. Despite them both being heel, Helms gets a small dose of cheers for his association as a good friend of Jeff Hardy. He enters the ring and the match between the two begins.

The match, being the main event, gets good time, just like the match between Edge and Shannon Moore did last week. Edge does a good job of carrying Helms to a rather good match, with both of them getting a good share of offense. The match comes to an end when Helms, after hitting a diving neckbreaker, sets Edge up for the Shining Wizard. Edge slowly gets up, and Helms runs at him, but the Rated-R Superstar ducks, and bounces off the ropes before connecting with a SPEAR! Edge then covered Helms for the three count at the 11:38 mark. Edge then goes to the outside of the ring and looks under it before pulling out a LADDER from underneath. Helms, a sitting duck, is helped up by the referee, but before he can get out, Edge gets in with the ladder. Edge grabs Helms by the head and throws him down onto the ground before picking up the ladder that he brought in and slams it on Helms' head, laughing as he does it! Helms is going crazy with the pain, and after 4 shots of the ladder, the referee pulls Edge away from Helms, with Edge letting out a maniacal laugh and shouts to noone that "that's what's going to happen to Jeff, he's gonna get taken off on a stretcher!" RAW then again goes backstage for one final time.

***

And it's to none other then the Legend Killer, Randy Orton! Orton now has one more brilliant pickett sign, with this one saying "ORTON = LEGEND KILLER; COACHMAN = FAIL". Just classic. His strikees have now weeded out some, with both the Redneck Wrecking Crew and Kenny Dykstra leaving, with Orton telling Kelly Kelly that they "were not strong enough to stay on the task". He says that the time is up, and that Coachman better come here right now, otherwise he's going to curse the name of Randy Orton. He says he'll give him to the count of 5, and if he doesn't show, he and Nitro are going to go into his office and get their demands fulfilled. 1...2...3...4... and Coachman then walks onto the screen. He offers Randy a handshake, but Randy grabs his hand and SPITS INTO IT! Coachman looks at his hand in disgust before calmly wiping it on his suit pants, asking Randy what exactly he wants.

Randy says that all of the stuff that he saw today, the people getting bashed with ladders, tag-team partners hitting their signature moves on each other, all of it, needs to stop. He and Nitro are almost too embarassed to call themselves "RAW Superstars" in public because it's humiliating. Coachman asks Randy what all of those things have to deal with him, and Randy replies by saying that he's afraid to go out there and compete now because he thinks that someone may come and try and put him in a hospital. So, Randy says, that will need reasons to go out to the ring. Coachman says that he accepts Randy's concerns, and says that he won't need to step inside of the squared circle while on the RAW Brand unless A) it's a title match B) it's a number one contender's match C)he's defending his title or D) he's hosting his talk show. Randy then interrupts and says that he doesn't even have a talk show, so part "D" is irrelevant. Coachman then says that Randy is wrong, and that he will be debuting his new talk show, "The Killers Korner" at Backlash with a special guest. Randy asks Coachman who his guest will be, and Coachman says that he, Johnathan Coachman, will pick Orton's first guest. For who it is, Randy won't find out until Backlash, so until then, he tells him to stop striking, get cleaned up, and get questions ready for his unknown guest, because this is going to be a success. Coachman then tells Orton goodnight, and RAW fades to black.

Default Re: WWE 2007: The Year of Redemption


ECW on Sci-Fi
April 17, 2007

"Don't Question My Heart" plays as the normal opening video package for ECW plays as ECW on Sci-Fi comes on air. Once we get the song and opening pyro out of the way, our commentators for the night, Joey Styles and Tazz, hype this ECW as being one of the biggest shows that you'll see in a while, with Rob Van Dam and CM Punk participating in their first ever one on one encounter versus each other, along with the New Breeds Marcus Cor Von taking on one of the members of the ECW Originals, and the ECW Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley taking on the most recent person eliminated in the Elimination Chase, Hardcore Holly. But before we can get to any of that, "One of a Kind" hits, and one half of tonights Main Event, "Mr. Tuesday Night" Rob Van Dam, makes his way down the ring. Rob is dressed in his ring gear, but with a t-shirt over top of it saying "Whole F'n Show" on the front. Rob gives the crowd some high fives before entering the ring and taking a microphone from Tony Chimel before he begins.

He says that tonight the crowd is treated for a great main-event featuring him against CM Punk, getting some cheap pops for it. He says he knows that Punk is a great wrestler and that he's in for a battle tonight, but the matter of fact is is that CM Punk, as good as he is, just isn't ready for that spot against Bobby Lashley in 12 days at Backlash. He says that Punk may think that he does deserve the spot over him, Rob Van Dam, but the fact is if he, Rob Van Dam, wasn't in the fatal-fourway and triple threat with him, he wouldn't even BE in this situation. While he's not trying to disrespect his opponent tonight, CM Punk himself knows for a fact that Rob Van Dam helped him get both of those flukey pinfalls the past two weeks. CM Punk knows for a fact that he can't beat Bobby Lashley at Backlash, and CM Punk fully knows for a fact that he cannot beat Mr. Tuesday Night himself, Rob Van D--...

"This Fire Burns" plays and Rob Van Dams opponent tonight, CM Punk makes his way down the ring. He has his usual trunks on with his ribs t-shirt on overtop. He grabs a microphone as he makes his way up the steps and begins talking. He says that, unlike many of his younger counterparts, he respects the original ECW and the ECW tradition, him not being ready for a match against Bobby Lashley is a flat out joke. He's been wrestling as a professional for 8 years, fighting every day of his life to get his chance to shine. This is what he came to the WWE for - the chance to wrestle for one of the greatest championships in the world, the ECW World Heavyweight Championship. So for RVD to say that he isn't ready for Lashley, it's almost as if he's already giving himself the match against Lashley at Backlash, and that's a slap in the face to him, Punk. Punk says that every time the doubters have tried to put him down, he steps his game up one more notch and beats the odds. He did it when everyone said that he didn't have the skill to be a wrestler. He did it when everyone said that he couldn't get a contract with the WWE. And he's gonna do it tonight when Rob Van Dam himself says that he can't beat him. Punk then says that he'd wish Van Dam good luck, but apparantly Van Dam must think that he doesn't need it, so he shoves the microphone in Van Dam's chest before walking out and leaving the ring as ECW goes to commercial.

{Commercial}

"Don't Waste My Time" plays as ECW comes back from commercial, with the New Breed, Elijah Burke, Marcus Cor Von, and Matt Striker making their way down the ring. Marcus Cor Von is the only one dressed for his match, and rightfully so, considering he's taking on one of the members of the ECW Originals tonight. Burke and Striker are giving Cor Von some last minute preparations, with Striker whispering Cor Von some secrets about each of the members and Burke giving Cor Von a neck rub so he stays loose. All three enter the ring together as "Huka Blues" blares throughout the arena and the "Homicidal, Suicidal, Genocidal, Death-Defying Sabu" makes his way down the ring, along with Tommy Dreamer, The Sandman, and Balls Mahoney by his side. Sabu is wished luck by all three men as he enters the ring, with Burke and Striker also escorted out of the ring to the outside, and the match between Marcus Cor Von and Sabu begins!

The match is a very exciting opening bout, a very common theme in the past few ECW's. Cor Von shows his strength early in the match, beating Sabu up like a rag doll around the whole ring for the first 3-4 minutes, before Sabu dodges a Pounce and lands a back elbow smash after jumping the middle ropes backwards. For the next few minutes Sabu attempts his spotty maneuvers on Cor Von, connecting with a springboard leg dreop and a triple jump moonsault before Cor Von takes the advantage back by reversing a slingshot crossbody into a one-armed swinging neckbreaker! After a the final stretch with both Cor Von and Sabu having the advantage, the finish comes when Sabu attempts a slingshot crossbody but gets taken out with a POUNCE~! Cor Von then pins Sabu elementary style at the 8:23 mark to pick up the win for the New Breed.

Following the match, Elijah Burke and Matt Striker enter the ring to celebrate their big victory with their partner, as Sabu is helped out of the ring by Dreamer, Sandman, and Balls. The New Breed see all four men walk away with their heads hanging low, laughing at them as they walk away, drawing some big heat. Burke then takes the microphone from Tony Chimel and tells the Originals that that destruction of Sabu right there was just the appetizer of what's to come next week for the combination of any of them four. The New Breed then celebrates as ECW goes backstage to Brooke, who's with ECW World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley.

***

Brooke welcomes everyone to the ECW World Heavyweight Champion before jumping right to the bait, and asking Lashley what his thoughts are on his opponent for tonight, Hardcore Holly. Lashley says that Hardcore Holly says he's hardcore and that he could defeat him in less then 5 minutes, but Holly's just blowing steam out of his "butt". Brooke then switches the subject to CM Punk and Rob Van Dam, the two men who will compete to face Lashley at Backlash, and what he thinks about them. Lashley says that both men would be great challenges for him, with both have different styles that not many people have. He says that he hopes that the best man wins, but at Backlash, they're going to have to give out their best, and 150% more then that to take the title off of him. Lashley then walks away as ECW goes to commercial.

{Commercial}

"How Do Ya Like Me Now" plays and veteran wrestler Hardcore Holly makes his way down the ring. Hardcore has his usual pissed off look going, which Tazz tries to play off by saying that Hardcore is unhappy from his elimination last week in the Elimination Chase and he's going to try and take it out on Lashley tonight. "Hell Will Be Callin' Your Name" plays next as the ECW Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley makes a slow walk down the ring. Lashley has his championship wrapped around his waist as he makes his way down the ring, and once he enters he hands the belt to referee and Hardcore jumps him before the bell is rung!

Hardcore, using the jumping to his advantage, controls Lashley for the first few minutes, venting out his anger with some hard knive-edge chops and a picture perfect dropkick. Holly continues his dominance until he attempts to hit Lashley with the Alabama Slam, but Lashley slips off and takes him out with a huge clothesline. Lashley then is in control from there, hitting an overhead belly to belly suplex and a military press powerslam. Holly almost gets the advantage back after reversing the Dominator into the Alabama Slam, but Lashley slips down again and quickly connects with the Dominator for the win at 7:11.

After the match, the referee hands Lashley his title belt, who is busy celebrating his win, when HARDCORE HOLLY JUMPS LASHLEY AGAIN! Lashley tries to fight off Holly, once again getting out of the Alabama Slam, and takes Holly back out with an overhead belly to belly suplex, but then MIKE KNOX COMES OUT FROM THE CROWD AND TAKES LASHLEY OUT! Knox beats Lashley down and it turns into a 2 on 1 beatdown, with Lashley as a sitting duck. After a minute or so of beating Lashley down, Knox picks him up and Holly quickly comes over to help him hit a POWERBOMB ON THE ECW HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION! The crowd gives the pair massive heel heat as the two exchange a handshake as ECW goes to commercial.

ECW comes back on air with a video package playing, hyping up a future superstar. The man is sitting on a bench, alone, by himself, with him shown looking on into the distance. The man says that he's always trusted people, always taken their word for everything they've done, and the second he turns around, they've all stabbed him in the back. Not this time. When everyone sees Christopher Daniels make his debut in two weeks, they'll find out that nobody is safe, and that he'll take no prisoners. From the top of the mountain with ECW Champion Bobby Lashley to the bottom of the mountain with Little Guido Maritado, everyone will witness the wrath of the one, the only Christopher Daniels. The video package then cuts to an abrupt black.

***

ECW on Sci-Fi then cuts back to the announcers table with Joey Styles and Tazz, who are hyping up the main event that's about to commence in a few seconds between Rob Van Dam and CM Punk. They say that these two have butted heads the past two weeks, and now tensions are rising higher then ever, with the battle finally able to happen here, right now. They say it's old school versus new school, with both fighting for the right to face ECW World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley here in a few short weeks.

"This Fire Burns" plays first as the "Straightedge Superstar" CM Punk makes his way down the ring. He gives the crowd some non-chalant high fives, intent on making an impact here tonight. Punk enters the ring and gets on the top turnbuckle before slapping on his wrist while shouting that it's "his time" tonight. "One of a Kind" plays next as "Mr. Tuesday Night" Rob Van Dam makes his way down the ring. Despite this being a huge match for RVD, he still comes in with his usual calm demeanor, although it wasn't like that earlier in the show. RVD does his RVD arm taunt before he enters the ring, not wanting to stir up Punk. Just before the main event gets underway, Ring Announcer Tony Chimel announces that ECW General Manager Mick Foley just informed him that the match will be contested under Extreme Rules! The crowd goes nuts and then the main event is kicked off!

With ECW still having almost 15 minutes left to go, and the huge announcement just made seconds ago, they let these two go balls to the walls for 14 and a half minutes, with neither holding back. RVD, the more over superstar of the two, plays the face in the match, with Punk being the agressor early, wanting to set the tone for the match. Punk tries to get some quick pinfalls early to prevent RVD from getting hardcore, but RVD makes quick kickouts on each of his tries. RVD then gets the momentum in his favor by ducking a diving crossbody and quickly connecting with moonsault after cartwheeling. Van Dam gets some "R-V-D, R-V-D" chants and then goes outside of the ring and grabs some steel chairs under the ring. RVD quickly throws them inside, and then goes under the ring again and pulls out a TABLE! The crowd then gets some "E-C-W, E-C-W" chants going, with the crowd fully behind Van Dam. RVD slides the table into the ring and then re-enters it to try and use the weapons that he brought in to his advantage.

While Punk is still down, Van Dam sets up the table against one of the turnbuckles. RVD then grabs Punk by the head and gets him into a vertical position before whipping him into the table. RVD then walks over and delivers two turnbuckle thrusts before doing a back handspring and runs straight at Punk for another, BUT PUNK GETS OUT OF THE WAY AND VAN DAM CRASHES INTO THE TABLE HEAD FIRST! Punk then gets the advantage back, putting RVD onto the top turnbuckle in a seated position before landing a HUGE SUPERPLEX! The crowd pops for the huge move, and Punk decides to go a little hardcore by placing one of the broughten in chairs by Van Dam in between the second and third ropes, and whips Van Dam hard into the chair FACE FIRST! Van Dam falls back down to a seated position, and Punk walks over, pushing the chair out of the way before pulling RVD up into a standing position.

Punk whips RVD into the opposite turnbuckles before taking a small breather and charging at RVD, landing a HUGE KNEE TO THE FACE! Punk then immediately takes him down with a bulldog as well! Punk has all the momentum in the world and waits for RVD to get up, and when he does, Punk puts him on his shoulders, setting him up for the Go To Sleep! Punk is inches away from hitting it, but RVD slides off his back, almost as if it's an instinct, and hits a picture perfect dropkick to Punks back, sending him over the top rope! Rob Van Dam follows him outside of the ring, not giving Punk any time to recover, and starts laying some right hands onto Punks back before driving him back first into the barricade, with some of the fans touching Punk as he lays there helpless. RVD picks Punk up in a lateral position and drops him, gut first, onto the barricade. Punk lays there for a second, trying to catch his breath, as RVD goes onto the apron and does his "R-V-D" arms taunt again before jumping off and landing a spinning crescent kick on Punk on the outside!

RVD then pulls Punk back into the inside and tries to pick him up, but Punk stays on his knees and delivers a LOW BLOW TO VAN DAM! Punk quickly tries to capitalize by putting RVD on his shoulders and... CONNECTS WITH A GO TO SLEEP! PUNK MIGHT JUST HAVE IT WON! 1...2... VAN DAM GETS THE SHOULDER UP AT 2 1/2!! Punk can't believe it, and the crowd goes absolutely ape-shit for the kickout. Punk tries to not get rattled by putting RVD's arm behind his own neck and LOCKS IN THE ANACONDA VISE! RVD's face is beginning to turn a dark purple, and Punk is getting some heat, although he just starts putting on the pressure even tighter! The referee checks to see if RVD has passed out by picking RVD's arm up and watching it drop once...twice...RVD has just enough energy to hold it up before it falls a third time! Punk is getting restless and lets go of the hold before quickly hooking the far leg of RVD for the pin...1...2...NO! Punk again can't believe it, so he picks RVD up and places him on his shoulders for another GTS, but this time RVD slides down and trips Punk with a legsweep.

RVD quickly tries to get the blood to flow back into his head before he goes to the top rope and hits a split legged moonsault on Punk! RVD covers Punk for the pin, but Punk gets the shoulder up at two! The two then exchange a few more blows before we get to the finishing stretch, with Punk taking RVD down with a springboard diving clothesline! Punk then picks RVD up and places him on his shoulders and again attempts the GTS, but RVD slips down once more and grabs one of the loose steel chairs and throws it at Punk, who catches it, before landing a spinning wheel kick to the face, CONNECTING WITH A VAN DAMINATOR! RVD then covers Punk for the win...1...2... NO! Somehow Punk gets his shoulder up, and the crowd shows respect for Punk by cheering for his kickout, and RVD is the one now not believing it. RVD then grabs the steel chair that he hit the Van Daminator with and places it under Punks back before going to the top rope and GETS THE CHAIR THROWN AT HIS FACE! Punk covers RVD for the win...1...2...KICKOUT! Punk can't believe it and picks RVD up and drives him back first into the turnbuckle! Punk then places RVD on the top rope in a seated position and puts him in a superplex position...BUT RVD PUSHES HIM OFF THE TURNBUCKLE! RVD QUICKLY GETS TO HIS FEET AND LANDS THE FIVE-STAR FROG SPLASH ON THE LAYING PUNK! RVD covers Punk for the win... 1...2...3!!! RVD wins with the Five-Star Frog Splash at the 15:23 mark.

RVD quickly gets back to his feet and celebrates his victory by going outside and celebrating with the crowd. Punk, still down on the mat, looks in anguish that he was just...this...close from winning, with RVD just outsmarting him. RVD goes back inside of the ring to get his hand raised by the referee, and Punk is still inside of the ring, seated on canvas leaning on a turnbuckle. RVD notices Punk and walks over to him before offering out his hand, showing a sign of respect. Punk looks at it and gets up before grabbing it and shaking RVD's hand, showing that the two now respect each other. RVD is about to walk back and celebrate, but Punk doesn't let go, and pulls him in closer for a hug. The crowd celebrates the sportsmanship between the two, with Punk whispering something into RVD's ear. Punk then lets go and walks off as RVD celebrates his win while ECW fades to black.

Default Re: WWE 2007: The Year of Redemption

Well, I guess I should update this thread for anyone that's reading before I'm off for a few days.

Smackdown (April 20th) has not been touched yet. I've been busy getting a start on Backlash, which I am roughly 1/3 done with, and am quite enjoying writing it. However, tomorrow I will be leaving with my family for 9-11 days, and won't return til possibly the 16th, and since recaps don't take me long to write, I hope to have the next four shows (Smackdown 20th, Raw 23rd, ECW 24th, and Smackdown 27th) all done by early August, then get Backlash up, which could possibly be done before the final Smackdown is, which would help me a lot. I am enjoying writing these recaps and don't want to rush them and get burnt out like I have in previous attempts at BTBs. The recaps will continue to come until I get to the road to Summerslam, which I feel has a pretty epic card.

Anyways, the main focus of this post was to inform anyone reading that I will not be online for the next 9-11 days as I'll be on vacation, so any reviews of Smackdown, RAW, or ECW from the past week. I may return it, but I can't promise anything. Please don't classify this as "bumping" or "spamming" plz.

Friday Night Smackdown
April 20, 2007

Smackdown kicks off with a video package from last weeks Number One Contenders Match for the World Heavyweight Championship featuring Kane versus Batista...

Quote:
Friday Night Smackdown - April 13th, 2007:
...Batista can't believe it and puts Kane's head between his legs before he lifts him up and CONNECTS WITH A BATISTA BOMB! Batista is about to cover...BUT THE LIGHTS GO OUT! Nobody knows what the hell is going on, and when the lights come back on, both Kane and Batista are down and out on the ground! The referee, confused, has no choice but to begin counting them both out! He reaches 8 before Batista starts to regain consciousness, and just before Batista can pick himself up, the referee reaches 10... and the match is declared a draw! Batista gets up and can't believe the announcement by ring announcer Justin Roberts and gives Kane a Batista Bomb for good measure as Cole and JBL wonder what happened to the two men. Smackdown then fades to black.
"Rise Up 2006" by Drowning Pool then plays as Smackdown's opening video plays. After the opening pyro the fans give out a few rowdy cheers as "I Walk Alone" plays, with the "Animal" Batista making his way down the ring. Dave is dressed in a suit, not looking like he's going to compete here tonight. He keeps his shades on his head and gives some of the fans high fives as he passes by, not really acknowledging them. He grabs the microphone from Justin Roberts and waits for the crowd's cheers to die down before he begins.

Batista rubs his chin before thinking about what to say, wanting to make his words stick out loud and clear. He says that he's had about enough of the bullshit that Kane and the Undertaker have pulled out on him for two straight weeks. First, he's screwed out of the title, then, he's screwed out of the number one contendership spot. He's had enough of it, and it needs to stop before he really gets angry. Kane keeps talking about the voices in his head, but Batista says that he doesn't give a fuck if Kane had "daddy problems" when he was young. The World Heavyweight Championship deserves to be wrapped around his waist, and both those two have screwed him out of it, now he wants them to pay.

"Slow Chemical" plays next as the 'Big Red Machine' Kane makes his way down the ring. He ignores doing his signature turnbuckle pyro and gets a microphone handed to him by a production crew worker. He walks around the ring with Batista giving him a confused look before he begins by saying that he's "sorry". Kane says that the voices wanted him to have his brother come out and help him win the match, but he didn't want to win that way. Batista interrupts him and asks him who the "voices" are, and Kane says that he doesn't know. Batista, clearly getting frustrated, tells Kane that he doesn't care what the voices said, he's been screwed by them (Kane and Undertaker) for too long, and that he's gonna take some action right now. Batista then drops his microphone and makes his way over to Kane, but "McMillant" hits just in time to save Kane, as Smackdown General Manager Teddy Long comes down to some small cheers.

He tells Batista that he has gotten the short end of the stick in these past couple of weeks, so that's why at Backlash he'll be getting a chance to let out his anger when he faces Kane and The Undertaker in a Triple Threat Match for the World Heavyweight Championship. Batista smiles as Long continues, telling Batista that he can get some of that anger out on them tonight because he's going to have to find a partner to team up with him to take on the Brother's of Destruction in a tag-team match, with the winning team being able to pick the losing teams opponents next week on Smackdown. Batista then decides to not attack Kane, instead smiling and nodding his head as Smackdown goes to commercial.

{Commercial}

Smackdown comes back on air with the tag-team of Deuce and Domino already inside of the ring. They talk a little bit of strategy as "Hey You" plays and the WWE Tag-Team Champions, Paul London and Brian Kendrick make their way down the ring, sprinting. They do their backflips off the top ropes and hand the referee their tag-team championships, but just before the match can get underway, "Rule Brittiana!" plays, with The Bluebloods, William Regal and Dave Taylor make their way down the ring. Instead of entering the ring, however, the two go over to the announcers booth and do some guest commentary with Michael Cole and JBL. The match is then begun.

The match between the two teams is highly one sided in favor of Londrick, with the finish coming when Kendrick has Deuce in the Sliced Bread #2 position, and just before he can run up and connect with the finisher, the Bluebloods come in and take out the WWE Tag-Team Champions, giving them the win by Disqualification at 5:21. Regal continues to pound down on Kendrick while Taylor takes London. The champs put up a decent battle until Deuce and Domino help out the Bluebloods, then it becomes a four on two assault. London and Kendrick are hopeless when Taylor goes outside and grabs the WWE Tag-Team Titles and tosses them inside of the ring. He has Domino keep London up in a vertical position as he STRIKES HIM WITH THE TAG-TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS! He then hands the other title to Regal who STRIKES KENDRICK WITH THE OTHER BELT! London and Kendrick are both busted up now, with the four men believing their job is done, toss the tag-team titles at the champions, who are getting treated by the referee as we go backstage.

***

The Miz is the man who is shown on the television screen, trying to hook up with a few beautiful women, with none of them looking that interested in the Miz. He tries to impress them by saying that he's on a winning streak, but then one of the girls reminds him that it's only been one match against a guy in the crowd. They all then leave saying that they aren't interested in him, which makes the Miz a little upset. He then is about to walk away when he is caught up by Todd Grisham who tries to interview him a little bit. The Miz asks Grisham what he wants, and Todd says that he has an upcoming match tonight against Scotty 2 Hotty, and what his thoughts are on his opponent. The Miz says that Scotty 2 Hotty shouldn't even be classified in the same league as the Miz, let alone wrestle in a match with him. The Miz says he's had pieces of crap that wrestle better then Scotty. The Miz then says that Scotty is nothing but a loser, just like Rey Mysterio.

Grisham reminds The Miz that Mysterio did win the World Heavyweight Championship a little more then a year ago, but the Miz tells him that's only because he wasn't wrestling him for the title. The Miz says that he's the future of the business, and that little midgets like Mysterio are the guys that will be telling their grandchildren that they wrestled in the same company as the greatest wrestler ever, The Miz. The Miz then says that next week he will be holding a special MizTV show, so if Mysterio wants to give him a piece of his mind, do it next week. Now, he has a match to win. The Miz then walks off as Smackdown goes to another commercial break.

{Commercial}

"Reality" hits as The Miz makes his way down the ring, to a little louder amount of jeers this week. The Miz walks down the ring and sees a group of fans there wearing Rey Mysterio shirts and makes an "L" on his forehead with his fingers, telling them that they are losers. The Miz then enters the ring as he waits for his opponent. "Turn It Up" plays next as the Miz's opponent, Scotty 2 Hotty makes his way down the ring. He gives the crowd some high fives before he makes his way inside of the ring, savoring every moment of the fans that he can. Scotty then enters the ring as the bell is rung and the match is started.

The match, must like last week, is a total squash match from the get go. The Miz overpowers the cruiserweight with some clotheslines and shoulder thrusts before he lands the Mizard of Oz and covers Scotty for the three academically at 2:39. After the match, The Miz grabs Scotty by the head and throws him out of the ring so he can taunt inside of the ring himself. Cole and JBL then play up the cocky superstar's now 2 and 0 record since redebuting on Smackdown, with them then going backstage to Todd Grisham, who's with the Belfast Brawler Finlay.

***

Grisham asks Finlay about his upcoming match against Mr. Money In The Bank, Mr. Kennedy, for Kennedy's briefcase. Finlay says that he shouldn't even be fighting for the briefcase, he should already have it after how close he was at Wrestlemania. Grisham asks Finlay his strategy going into the match, and the fighting Irishman says that he's going to go out there, teach Kennedy a little something about respect, win the briefcase, and cash it in at Judgment Day. Finlay is about to leave, but bumps into the man that he will be facing in a short while, Mr. Kennedy. Kennedy is chewing his gum ferociously with his Money in the Bank briefcase in his hand. He tells Finlay that he must have had one too many at the bar before he came because there is no way that a guy as old as Finlay is can beat a guy as in great of shape as Mister Money in the Bank himself. Finlay tells Kennedy better watch his mouth because he doesn't have the skill to back it up, but Kennedy instead laughs at Finlay before saying that when he does win his first ever World Championship Finlay will be able to say that he helped pave the road for Mister....Kennedy. Finlay then walks away and Kennedy says "Kennedy" a second time. Smackdown then goes to commercial.

{Commercial}

Smackdown comes back on air with a man inside of the ring with a beautiful woman by his side. He tells his girlfriend that this place is a dump, which the crowd boos him with. He says that he doesn't think even 5 percent of the people in here have an IQ above 20, and each of them are probably cousins with each other. The crowd boos the man as his girlfriend lays one nice kiss on his cheek, which the man gives a cocky smirk at. He announces himself as Johnny Jeter, and that his girlfriends name is Maryse. They both leave the ring and walk over to a small child, no older then 8 years, and notice that he has a Batista shirt on. Johnny asks the kid who his favorite wrestler is, and the kid replies with Batista. Johnny asks why, but before he lets the kid answer, he pulls the microphone away from him and says probably because Batista reminds the kid of himself; a big, blubbering idiot. Jeter laughs as he enters the ring, now ready to make his debut.

"Gonna Punch Someone Tonight" plays as Smackdown's resident redneck, Jimmy Wang Yang makes his way down the ring. Yang gets a small group of cheers and enters the ring as the match begins. The match is a competitive first contest for the rookie Jeter, who spends most of the match on the offensive side of things, just not being able to put Wang Yang away. The finish comes when Jeter attempts a superplex but Yang pushes him down before setting up for the Yang Time. Yang goes for the moonsault but... crashes and burns! Jeter quickly goes over to Yang and locks in a half nelson choke... and Yang almost taps instantly at 7:21! Jeter is successful in his debut, with Maryse entering the ring and giving her boyfriend a congratualtory kiss. Jeter smirks again, before taking the microphone from announcer Justin Roberts and saying that what he did there should be a message to anyone in the Cruiserweight Division. Johnny Jeter is here, and he's going to become the quickest person ever to win a title in the WWE. He then spits at Yang's feet, who is still trying to recover from the half nelson choke, as the duo leave the ring and Smackdown goes backstage.

***

We see King Booker along with his wife, Queen Sharmell, walking backstage to their dressing rooms. Booker unlocks the door and opens it to see Matt Hardy sitting in his chair. Booker immediately goes ballistic, asking Hardy how the hell he got in his room. Matt says that he had someone close to Booker open it for him. Booker asks who the hell he is talking about, and then a man taps Booker on the shoulder, causing the King to turn around and bump into The Boogeyman! The Boogeyman laughs maniacally before shoving a handful of worms in his mouth, which Booker proceeds to tell him to get the hell out of his dressing room. Boogey leaves and Booker turns his attention back to Hardy.

He asks Hardy what the hell he wants, and Hardy says that Booker gave him a minor concussion last week, and now that he is fully healed, he wants a match against Booker next week. Booker laughs at Hardy, saying that he has no intentions on fighting Matt since they are even. Matt threatened to take out his queen so Booker gave him a concussion. He does not want to waste his time on Matt anymore, as he has more important things to focus on. Matt gets up and starts walking to the door, but just before he leaves he says that he will get his one on one match with Booker, whether Booker wants to or not. Smackdown then cuts to a commercial break.

{Commercial}

Smackdown comes back on air with a video package promoting the WWE Draft, which is going to occur in just 10 days on a special three hour edition of RAW. Champions, friends, enemies, tag-teams, brothers, all can be separated or united when the draft happens on RAW at a special starting time of 8/7 central.

We are then backstage yet again, this time with the Cruiserweight Champion Chavo Guerrero. Chavo looks all dolled up, about to leave in a limousine, when Gregory Helms comes running and slaps on the window, wanting Chavo to roll it down. Chavo asks his good friend what he wants, and Helms says that he just got news from Teddy Long. Chavo asks him what the news was, and Helms says he pulled a few strings, and Helms got himself a title match. Chavo gets out of the limo and asks Helms if he's serious, and Helms nods his head. Chavo rubs his hands together, knowing that the two of them become one of the most powerful tag-teams of all time. Chavo asks him what his plan is to beat Benoit for the title next week, but Helms interrupts him by saying that he doesn't have a United States Title Shot.

Chavo then thanks him for getting them a tag-team title match against London and Kendrick, but Helms said he didn't get a WWE Tag-Team Championship shot either. Chavo gasps and says that he's getting the biggest match of his career against the World Heavyweight Champion the Undertaker? Helms shakes his head, saying that he got a Cruiserweight Championship match against Chavo, one on one. Chavo yells at Helms, telling him that he has to go back and forfeit the title match. Helms says that Teddy already signed it for next week with a fifteen minute time limit. Chavo kicks the door and says that he better just lay down next week otherwise this partnership will be no more. Helms says he's gonna bring all that he's got, and Chavo gets back into his limo, pissed, before driving off.

***

"Turn Up The Trouble" plays as Mr. Money In The Bank, Mr. Kennedy makes his way down the ring, ready for his match against Finlay with his Money in the Bank contract on the line. He grabs the microphone and announces himself as a future World Heavyweight Champion from the greatest city in the world, Green Bay, Wisconsin. "Lambeg" plays next and the Belfast Brawler Finlay with his signature shillelagh in his hand. Finlay looks determined here tonight to take the Money in the Bank briefcase and become something he's never been before his great career - a World Champion. He drops the shillelagh by his corner as the match begins.

The two put on a very compeititve twelve minute match, with Finlay using the No-Disqualification rule for him to his advantage. He gets a few near falls after a Rolling Hills and big boot, but then Kennedy starts getting the advantage by getting out of a headlock with a whip off the ropes and a kick to the gut. The finish comes when Finlay, trying to use the No-DQ stipulation again, attempts a shillelagh shot to the head of Kennedy, who ducks the shot, before connecting with a roundhouse kick to the head! Kennedy then picks Finlay up and places him on his shoulders, looking to land the Green Bay Plunge and...CONNECTS! Kennedy then covers Finlay for the win at 12:45 to retain his Money in the Bank briefcase. Kennedy immediately goes to the outside and grabs his briefcase then announces himself as the winner outside of the ring, not wanting to go back inside with Finlay. Finlay is laying inside of the ring, trying to recover from the Green Bay Plunge, as Smackdown goes to commercial.

{Commercial}

Smackdown comes back on air with Montel Vontavious Porter inside of Teddy Long's office. He's pleading with Long to give him a match against Benoit next week for the United States Championship, and Long says that while he has pinned him in a tag team and singles match, he still needs one more impressive win by Smackdowns richest superstar to see if he's worthy of a title match. MVP says he'll take anyone as long as he gets his title match against that piece of trash Benoit. Long says that he might wanna be a little nicer to Benoit, and MVP asks why, which Long replies by saying because Benoit is gonna be his tag-team partner next week when they take on the WWE Tag-Team Champions, Paul London and Brian Kendrick, and if MVP wins, he'll get his title shot against Benoit in the near future. MVP smiles and agrees to that before leaving Long's office as Smackdown goes back out to the arena.

***

"Slow Chemical" plays first as the Big Red Machine, Kane makes his way down the ring. Kane has a crazy look on his face, presumably the voices talking to him, then comes into the ring and does his usual turnbuckle pyro as he waits for his partner and brother to make his way down. "Rest in Peace" hits next as the current World Heavyweight Champion, The Undertaker makes his way down the ring, slowly. The Undertaker does his usual pre-match actions before the Brothers of Destruction wait for their opponents. "I Walk Alone" plays next as the Animal, Batista, makes his way down the ring. He does his normal pyro and stays out of the ring as he waits for his partner. "Whatever" plays and the current United States Champion, Chris Benoit makes his way down the ring to a good handful of cheers. Batista and Benoit shake hands before they both enter the ring with the match beginning.

Kane begins for his team, while Batista insists on starting for his team. The two have some good exchanges until Batista drives Kane into the turnbuckle and tags in Benoit. For the next few minutes we get some good in ring action from all four of these men, until we get to the finish where Benoit tags in Batista as he gets on the top rope. Batista whips Kane off the ropes and connects with a devastating SPINEBUSTER before Benoit hops off the top turnbuckle with a DIVING HEADBUTT. Benoit then goes and takes out the Undertaker as Batista lands a Batista Bomb and pins Kane at 11:58 to win the tag-team match! Batista is very, very excited for his win, quickly dumping Kane out of the ring before giving his tag-team partner a big bear hug. The two then shake hands and raise them up in the air as Kane and the Undertaker look at each other with some tension in the air as Smackdown fades to black.

Paul London & Brian Kendrick def. Deuce & Domino by DQ @ 5:21

SmackDown! Feedback


First time reviewing this thread, and I'm glad to have gotten some info on what went down on the main event, helped me be not as clueless.

I'm not too sure if I liked the cursing in the opening promo. "Bullshit" I'm alright with, but "fuck" not as much, I just don't see it as something you can get away with as easily. Nevertheless, a solid recap that gave me a good feel about what was going on, with both men playing their roles well. Batista was convincing as the pissed-off guy wanting the World Title after being screwed, and although the description for Kane wasn't as great, it still introduced me to Kane and his voices, which is good to know. Teddy was biased towards the big man again (he's always favored Batista, true facts), but the Triple Threat for the belt at Backlash sounds like it'll be a powerful match. The main event between tonight sounds great, especially with the stipulation it comes with, and I'm looking forward to finding out who Batista's partner'll be. Good intro here.

We really got nothing of the match, except that DnD were getting jobbed out, something I don't mind. Still, would've liked to have seen more. The Blueblood's assault was pretty brutal and drove their feud with the Tag Champs well, and them being busted open was a nice touch to make it seem a little more intense. Looking forward to London and Kendrick getting some payback for it.

Pretty funny stuff with Miz getting rejected, and more info for me to take in here as well. Good interview as well, Miz really making himself looking like a big deal, and some harsh words against Scotty and Rey. I'm not expecting too much from Miz/Scotty, but MizTV on the other hand, sounds like it'll be a great segment.

For some reason, I really don't see Miz bieng the type of guy to squash people, but you're pushing him, so I guess it works. In any case, his taunting Rey fans was a great touch to get heat and progress his feud with Rey. Next week's MizTV should be a great segment to really put him over.

Kennedy was awesome here, especially the line about having one too many. Good stuff here, and I'm looking forward to the match more thanks to this segment. However, I think that the MITB defense maybe should've been held at Backlash, as it would've been a better way to put Kennedy over on a bigger stage. Unless, that's what you plan on doing, so I'll just read on and see what happens. Great segment here.

I really think Jeter and Maryse should've come out to a theme song instead of already being in the ring when this started. Anyway, Jeter went with th original heel tactics of dissing a crowd and a little kid, should've gotten some big heat for that. I think maybe his match with Jimmy should've been a little shorter, as seven minutes probably wouldn't have held the crowd's attention much for the newcomer. I like that he has a submission finisher, but maybe it should've been something that looks a little more impressive. Good win for Jeter, although he already messed up in his claim, being the quickest person to win a title. Carlito and DiBiase Jr. did that in their very first match, unless you meant quickest as in literal speed, MPH type of way.

Hmm. A Booker/Matt feud would be a great way to elevate Matt, and it seems that way. Matt's pretty driven in this case, good stuff, and Booker's the typical chickenshit heel avoiding conflict when it doesn't benefit him. Made me look forward to their match, great job here. And as for Boogeyman, maybe you should look into releasing him.

Draft special are always something to look forward to, should be big.

Awesome segment here, just awesome. I loved Chavo thinking Helms meant he'd gotten a title shot for every title other than his, hilarious stuff. The match next week should be a great one, as both can really go, and up to fifteen minutes of it? Great stuff. Definitely looking forward to it.

Didn't know the match was No DQ, maybe you should've emphasized on that during their segment. Anyway, fine match to put Kennedy over, but what I didn't like was that Finlay hit the Rollings Hills and didn't put him away, but then Kennedy hit the Green Bay Plunge for the finish. It's the same move, and you didn't say Kennedy did it from the top rope for the extra impact, unless it was implied. Anyway, good match for Kennedy to pick up some big momentum, and he didn't even use the No DQ rules, as far as we knew.

Good stuff from MVP, and once again Teddy's being biased. MVP has all the qualifications for getting a US Title Match. However, the tag match next week sounds just a little odd. Benoit's teaming with the guy that wants his title, and if they win as a team, then that guy gets the title match? If Benoit was heel, he could easily desert MVP. I doubt that's what'll happen, but it could. Either way, putting those four in the ring together should make for a great match.

Now, I'm sure that this was a great match if we'd gotten more from it, but it really didn't come off that way, especially since arguably the most important man in the match, 'Taker the World Champ, didn't do anything. And Kane, he didn't really fare well either, might've helped to show how he got the tables turned on him. Sort of disappointing for the main event. It did really show Batista's passion for wanting the title back, and that Benoit can have with the best, though.

Decent show, but it really lacked PPV-focus. Looking over the current card, only one match at Backlash features SmackDown!. Aside from this, it was centered more around the development of characters and wrestlers, which is perfectly fine. The matches were quick short sentences, which didn't really do much, other than the Finlay/Kennedy match. I can't said this is the best I've seen from you, but there's definitely potential there, and I'll try to help you out as much as I can to develop that potential. 7/10.

I guess I should point out that Backlash is supposed to be a RAW only PPV, but with the storylines as they were with Cena/HBK as Tag-Team Champs, so I was a little short on talent on the RAW side of things, I had to throw an interbrand match from SD and ECW to give it more flavor. After Backlash, aside from the big four, the PPV's will rarely feature a match from the other two brands.

Yeah, I should've pointed out that NO-Dq was only applied for Finlay. T'was my bad.

I know it sounds confusing, but over time, my plans will work out. I'm still trying to get out of the storylines they have and get into what I have planned, so the stuff my be kinda weak for now. Thanks for the review, btw.
