WrestleMania 25 Results
-WWE Championship Match
Triple H(c) def. Randy Orton w/Mark Henry & Teddy Long
With the odds against him, and his WWE Championship on the line, Triple H managed to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds against Randy Orton to retain his beloved championship. After Orton won the Royal Rumble and vowed to end Triple H’s tenure as the dominating force on RAW forever, The Legend Killer soon forged a plan with Mark Henry and Teddy Long to bring The Game to an end. After suffering brutal attack after brutal attack at the hands of Orton and Henry, Triple H fought with everything in his power at WrestleMania 25. The Game found himself desperate after referee Rudi Charles was inadvertently knocked unconscious. The Legend Killer and World’s Strongest Man began to assault The Cerebral Assassin, and Henry connected with a brutal chair shot to the head. However, Triple H’s salvation would come in the form of a returning Animal. After a career threatening injury at the hands of Randy Orton, Batista returned to seek revenge – clearing the ring and draping The Game’s arm over a fallen Legend Killer. Triple H is still the WWE Champion, but he owes his retention to a timely return by Batista.
-NWA World Heavyweight Championship Match
Samoa Joe def. Edge(c) w/Lita
-The Samoan Submission Machine is still undefeated, and Edge’s WrestleMania dreams were crushed via a devastating Rear-Naked Choke by Samoa Joe. After only five months in the World Wrestling League, Samoa Joe managed to climb the Impact! mountain, dethroning arguably the most controversial NWA World Heavyweight Champion of all time. The road to WrestleMania was a highly contested one for Edge and Samoa Joe, as both superstars set out to gain an advantage over the other. Joe found Edge’s weakness in the form of Lita – and after Edge’s wife attacked The Samoan Submission Machine from behind with a steel chair, Joe vowed to make her regret that decision. Joe would attack Lita one week later, forcing her to be carted from the arena on a stretcher. This enraged Edge, and the champion became absolutely psychotic only weeks before WrestleMania. Lita would make a triumphant return at WrestleMania to stand by her husband’s side, but this was not enough to rally Edge. Samoa Joe is the new NWA World Heavyweight Champion.
The Undertaker def. Chris Jericho
After being declared Superstar of the Year in 2008, the Human Highlight Reel Chris Jericho vowed to become an even bigger superstar in 2009. He set out to win the Royal Rumble, but his efforts were thwarted by one man – The Undertaker. Chris Jericho would respond with a challenge – vowing to face and defeat The Undertaker at WrestleMania 25. The mind games from The Phenom intensified on the road to WrestleMania, but Jericho achieved a few surprises of his own – at one point ramming The Undertaker into an electric grid. Their contest at WrestleMania 25 was a thrilling one, as Jericho desperately tried to force The Deadman to tap. After powerfully kicking out of a Codebreaker and a Lionsault, The Phenom would beat Jericho in unorthodox fashion, forcing Jericho to pass out via Triangle Choke.
-WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match
Christopher Daniels def. Brock Lesnar(c)
The road to WrestleMania was a long and difficult one for new World Heavyweight Champion Christopher Daniels. At the beginning of 2009, Daniels was questioned by Todd Grisham as to why he’d never been a world champion. Daniels responded that he would soon change that and silence his critics once and for all. After a failed attempt to win the Royal Rumble, Daniels was still determined to earn his championship opportunity. His chance came in the form of a Gold Rush Tournament, but his journey to stardom was by no means an easy one. Daniels shocked the sports entertainment industry with a victory over John “Bradshaw” Layfield in the semi-finals, and The Fallen Angel would earn his championship opportunity two weeks later with a victory in the finals against longtime friend A.J. Styles. Standing in Daniels’ path was one of the most dominating champions of all time – Brock Lesnar. The Next Big Thing declared Daniels an underdog, a role The Fallen Angel had no problem assuming. Lesnar intimidated Daniels on the road to WrestleMania, but it was ultimately Daniels who was laughing after countering an F5 into a pinning predicament.
-Battle of the Icons
Sting vs. Shawn Michaels
Shawn Michaels and Sting share many attributes – the same faith, the same dedication, the same determination, and the same passion for the wrestling business. It was no surprise then – that after a failed attempt to win the Royal Rumble, Stiing announced that his last match would take place at WrestleMania 25. The Icon chose another Icon to wrestle him on the grandest stage of them all – The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels. With mutual respect between them, and a common adoration for the sports entertainment industry, Michaels and Sting battled in one of the most memorable matches in WrestleMania history. Ultimately, it was Mr. WrestleMania who defied the Scorpion Death Lock, sending Sting to the canvas a final time with a dose of Sweet Chin Music. As the two Icons journeyed up the entrance ramp following their encounter, the ovation was deafening.
-3-3 Tag-Team Match
Bobby Lashley & A.J. Styles & Kurt Angle def. Muhammad Hassan & Homicide(c) & Hernandez(c) w/Konnan & Daivari
Anti-American sentiment is always at the forefront of Muhammad Hassan’s agenda, and at WrestleMania 25, he set out to send a message to three men who epitomize the American fighting spirit. The Phenomenal One, A.J. Styles, who wrestled in back alleys and basements on his way to success called Hassan out after a confrontation between the two on Smackdown. Hassan soon responded, insulting Kurt Angle in the process. The Latin-American Exchange soon joined Hassan’s crusade, calling Angle and Styles “what makes America disgusting.” The Olympic Gold Medalist and The Phenomenal One found the final piece of the puzzle in Impact star Bobby Lashley, a former amateur wrestler and patriot who served in the United States armed forces. The match between the teams was highly contested, physical, and a testament to the wills of all six participants. The Latin-American Exchange put A.J. Styles through an announce table, rendering him motionless for the duration of the contest. However, it was Kurt Angle who ultimately achieved victory for his team, forcing Hassan himself to tap to the Ankle Lock.
-Intercontinental Championship Match – Triple-Threat Match
Booker T(c) def. Carlito & Chris Masters
The love-hate relationship between Chris Masters and Carlito came to a head yet again when the number one contender’s position for Booker T’s Intercontinental Championship was decided in a Battle Royal. After Masters and Carlito worked successfully to eliminate the competition, they engaged in a furious battle to win the right to challenge Booker T at WrestleMania. An expert clothesline from The Masterpiece sent Carlito over the top rope, but Carlito managed to bring Masters along for the ride. Both men hit the ground at precisely the same time, and General Manager Ric Flair announced both men would challenge Booker for his title. The experienced veteran wrestled a superb match at WrestleMania 25, taking advantage of the tension between Carlito and Chris Masters. After Carlito staggered Masters with a dropkick, Booker reentered the ring to nail Carlito with a fantastic flying Axe Kick. With Carlito incapacitated, Booker nailed Masters with a shot to the gut, finishing him with a Scissors Kick to retain his beloved Intercontinental gold.
-Money in the Bank Ladder Match
John Cena def. The Big Show & Christian Cage & Montel Vontavious Porter(c) & Rey Mysterio vs. Rob Van Dam(c) vs. Jerry Lynn vs. Petey Williams
-After becoming the final participant to qualify for the Money in the Bank Ladder Match, John Cena became determined to emerge victorious in his first ever Money in the Bank contest. Cena and his fellow combatants would engage in several heated tag-team contests on the road to WrestleMania 25, but when the briefcase was suspended high above the ring at Reliant Stadium, every man hoped to earn the coveted prize for himself. Amazing action and thrilling exchanges occurred throughout the match, and the annual theatrics that have left fans in amazement in years past were certainly not absent from the fifth Money in the Bank contest. Cena would effectively eliminate the Big Show from the match after delivering a thunderous FU to the five hundred pounder from atop a ladder. Big Show would crash to the floor, thundering through two more outstretched ladders on his way to the ground. After hitting Rey Mysterio with a Canadian Destroyer, it was probable that Petey Williams would win the briefcase. However, John Cena would reenter the ring, quickly climbing a ladder alongside Williams’ to duke it out with the Canadian Destroyer. The bigger Cena gained the advantage, but Rob Van Dam and Montel Vontavious Porter soon joined the action atop the two ladders as well. Cena fought valiantly, and ultimately was the last man standing high above the ring. He would capture the Money in the Bank briefcase before falling to the canvas in exhaustion.
-WWE World Tag-Team Championship Match
John “Bradshaw” Layfield & Tomko(c) def. Brother Devon & Brother Ray
John “Bradshaw” Layfield and Tomko claimed to be the most dominating tag-team of the modern era after capturing the WWE World Tag-Team Championships from Paul London and Brian Kendrick. Team 3D took exception to this notion, and a bitter rivalry ensued that carried the two teams all the way to WrestleMania. The road to the grandest stage of them all saw JBL and Tomko attack Team 3D backstage, but Brothers Ray and Devon were able to gain retribution by putting Tomko through a table. Their match at WrestleMania 25 was a hard-hitting, physical one, as both teams set out to make a statement. Ultimately, it was underhanded tactics from JBL that sealed Team 3D’s fate. After countering a scoop slam from Brother Devon, JBL connected with a thumb to the eye. Tomko tagged himself in the contest, and he and JBL soon finished Devon with their Clothesline from Hell-Chopblock combination maneuver. With a victory over Team 3D, JBL and Tomko have certainly solidified themselves as the dominant tag-team on Smackdown!

Re: WWL: The World Wrestling League
The World Wrestling League Presents: RAW
April 6, 2009
From Reunion Arena, Dallas, Texas
A WrestleMania video package begins the show, and several of the amazing moments from WrestleMania 25 are discussed by Michael Cole and King. The broadcast team also talks about two confirmed matches later in the show – Chris Masters against Carlito and John Cena against The Big Show. They are soon interrupted by Triple H, who makes his way to the ring with the WWE Championship. Dressed in a suit and tie, Triple H has a large bandage across his forehead. The Game says that last night, he defeated Randy Orton to retain the WWE Championship, but as everyone in attendance and at home saw, his victory wasn’t shy of controversy. Triple H says that when the official went down, Mark Henry decided he’d seen enough of Randy Orton getting his ass kicked. Triple H says that after he was blasted by a steel chair, he can’t really remember all the details, but to make a long story short, Batista returned and came from nowhere to beat the hell out of Orton and Henry. Triple H says that he didn’t know Batista was going to save the day, and he certainly didn’t intend for it to happen, but the fact is Batista did in fact return – and he is still the WWE Champion. Triple H says that Randy Orton has been out to get him ever since winning the Royal Rumble, but at WrestleMania, it was Orton who got a dose of his own medicine. Triple H says that even if Orton had won, he would have proven nothing. Triple H says that sooner or later, if Orton wants to prove something, he’ll have to do it one on one against him – with nobody from the outside getting in the way.
Randy Orton makes his way to the ring. He too is dressed in a suit and tie. Orton asks for a microphone and tells Triple H that he has one thing to say – Triple H would not be the WWE Champion if it Batista hadn’t saved him. Orton says its ironic Triple H was saved by a man he held back for so many years. Orton says Batista may have forgiven and forgotten, but he never will. Triple H tells Orton that this isn’t about Evolution, and it’s not really even about him. Triple H says that Orton is angry and bitter because he failed last night. Triple H says that he and Batista have had their differences – that Batista was the first man to pin him in a Hell in a Cell match – that Batista made him question his purpose in the wrestling business, but ultimately, he realized that Batista’s progress, just like Orton’s, was just part of evolution. Orton says that Triple H is not the man he once was, and that Evolution always saved his ass just like Batista did last night. Orton says that Triple H talks about an encounter between the two in which no outside interference will take place, but Orton says that deep down, Triple H knows he cannot win in such an encounter. Triple H smiles, and gets in Orton’s face. Triple H says when that day comes, he will win, and Orton will be unable to do anything to stop him.
Batista’s music hits and the fans go crazy. Triple H steps away from Orton and turns to face The Animal, who is dressed in a white collared shirt and black slacks. Orton takes off his jacket, and stares down Batista. Batista says that last night, he returned after being punted in the head by Randy Orton. Batista says it feels great to be back on Raw, and it feels great to be able to tell Orton to his face that The Animal is back. Batista says that last night, Orton got a little dose of what is in store for him. Batista says that he’s not finished with Orton, and costing Orton the WWE Championship at WrestleMania was only the beginning. Batista says that if Orton and Triple H want to talk about Evolution, it’s only fair he participate in the discussion. Batista says that some called him the muscle, but when he became a world champion, people had to take him seriously. Batista says that Orton won a world championship first, but says Orton would have been unable to survive inside Hell in a Cell with Triple H. Batista says the fact of the matter is he was the big winner last night at WrestleMania 25, and he didn’t save Hunter’s ass for Hunter. “I saved Hunter for me,” Batista says. Batista says that one prize in this business will symbolize he’s back – the WWE Championship, and he wants it. Batista tells Triple H that he saved his ass at WrestleMania, but very soon, Batista will take the WWE Championship for his own.
Ric Flair makes his way to the ring and gives the crowd a big WOO! He asks what all the talk about Evolution is, and says that now every former member is involved in the equation. Flair says that since he’s the General Manager, he has the power to give everyone what they want. Ric Flair says that tonight, Triple H will get the night off – but Randy Orton and Batista will both get their opportunity to face Triple H for the WWE Championship in twenty days at Backlash. Ric Flair is soon interrupted by the World’s Strongest Man Mark Henry and Teddy Long. Henry, unlike Batista, Randy Orton, and Triple H, is dressed to compete. Flair asks Long what he wants, and Long says that he only wants what is fair. Long says that Mark Henry is tired of doing Randy Orton’s dirty work, and when the world title is being discussed, Orton wouldn’t have had the opportunity to win last night if it Mark Henry hadn’t had his back. Long says that Randy Orton doesn’t have room to accuse Batista when Henry has been there for Randy since the Royal Rumble.
Flair says he understands and says the solution is a simple one. Flair says that in twenty days at Backlash, Triple H will defend his WWE Championship against Randy Orton, Batista, and Mark Henry, in a Fatal-Fourway. Triple H and Orton are livid, while Batista looks on with a smile. Henry beats his chest. Flair then says that Henry may be tired of having Orton’s back, but he’s going to have to do it one more time tonight, because in the Main Event, Randy Orton and Mark Henry, will go one on one with Batista, and the Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels. This time, it is Triple H who is smiling – thrilled that he has the night off. Ric Flair says that now everyone has what they want – even Flair, who has a blockbuster championship match at Backlash. Flair struts backstage as a commercial break begins. Orton, Triple H, and Batista stare one another down in the ring.
Back from the commercial break, Booker T makes his way to the ring with his Intercontinental Championship. Booker gets on the microphone and says last night at WrestleMania he retained his championship and got a win. Booker says that he’s going to get another win tonight, because that’s how he does business. Booker awaits his opponent, and Kofi Kingston makes his way to the ring. Kingston offers a hand to Booker, who eventually accepts. The contest begins as the broadcast team anticipates the opening match of the evening.
Singles Match – Non-Title Match
Booker T(c) vs. Kofi Kingston
The contest between Booker and Kingston sees Booker pressure Kingston early, forcing him to wrestle from the ground up. Kingston flies around the ring, scoring with some big moves. Booker catches him with an axe-kick after Kingston takes a risk from the top turnbuckle, and Kingston is slowed. Booker once again begins a slow, physical dissection, working on Kingston’s arm. Kingston battles back, nearly surprising Booker on several occasions. Kingston eventually heads to the top yet again. However, Booker throws him from the top rope before connecting with a Spinebuster. Booker stalks Kingston, hitting a Scissors Kick to claim the victory.
Winner: Booker T (7:21)
Booker celebrates his victory before rolling from the ring with his championship. The Intercontinental Champion greets the fans, celebrating with them on his way backstage. The broadcast team praises Kofi Kingston for his valiant effort.
Jeremy Borash is standing by with Money in the Bank winner John Cena. Cena is holding his briefcase. Borash introduces Cena and asks Cena what it feels like to capture the Money in the Bank briefcase at this point in his career – having already been a multi-time world champion. Cena says that the men that have traditionally won the Money in the Bank briefcase – Rob Van Dam, AJ Styles, and Edge, have all gone on to capture their first world championship. Cena says that for him the situation is different. Cena says he doesn’t have anything to prove to anyone, and that he’s going to use the briefcase at the most opportune moment. Cena says that he’s putting the entire World Wrestling League on notice – Triple H, Samoa Joe, Christopher Daniels, and anyone else who happens to be a world champion. Cena says that everyone is on notice – and he’s going to ECW and Smackdown later this week to make sure everyone understands who Mr. Money in the Bank is. Borash then asks Cena about his match tonight against The Big Show. Cena says that last night, Cena threw a five hundred pound man twenty plus feet from the top of a ladder and caused him to crash through two more ladders on the way to the ground. Cena says the big man doesn’t scare him – especially when he’s coming into the match with a back that’s nearly broken back.
Backstage, Chris Masters is watching the match on a television monitor in a lounge area. Carlito appears and says that he’d be the Intercontinental Champion tonight if it hadn’t been for Masters. Masters tells Carlito that it wouldn’t have mattered, because he’d have beaten Carlito for the Intercontinental Championship in two seconds anyway. Carlito says that Masters thinks he’s so tough because of the Masterlock, but in reality Masters is just a roided up one move wonder. Masters gets in Carlito’s face, and tells Carlito that he’ll find out a thing or two about how touch he really is tonight. A commercial break begins
After the commercial break, Ric Flair is in his office. Triple H walks in, and says he’s on his way backstage to watch the rest of the show. Triple H says that Ric has made some good business decisions, but Ric didn’t make a wise decision by scheduling the Fatal-Fourway for Backlash. Triple H says Orton is a punk who doesn’t deserve another opportunity at the championship. Flair says that he saw Triple H overcome tremendous odds while he stood by his side, and he has no doubt Triple H can do it again. Flair says he has every confidence in Hunter. Flair says that Triple H can rest this week and take it easy, and make sure he’s ready for Backlash. Flair tells Hunter to relax before Triple H leaves.
John Cena makes his way to the ring, and after Cena makes his entrance, the fans see a replay of the horrific fall Big Show suffered from the ladder and through two more on his way to the floor. The Big Show makes his entrance, but he is obviously hobbled. He stares down Cena, and gives him a big shove as the referee calls for the bell.
Big Show vs. John Cena
Big Show is obviously angry, and he mauls Cena early in the match, taking the fight outside the ring. Show sends Cena into two sets of ring steps, and hurls him over the guard rail into the crowd. Cena fights back after ramming Big Show’s back against the ring. After surviving Big Show’s initial assault, Cena is able to begin working on the back. Cena works the back with hard offense, but the big man does not give up easily. Show fights like a large animal that has been wounded, but Cena keeps up the pressure on the back. Surprisingly, Cena is able to work the back with several submission holds that usually are not his weapon of choice. The physical contest culminates as Big Show manages to muster another rally. He nails Cena with several chops in the corner before whipping him across the ring. Show charges at Cena, who ducks out of the way. Show nails the corner and is staggered long enough for Cena to lift him in the air. Show powers out of the FU, landing on his feet before grasping Cena’s throat. Cena fights out, tackling Show to the ground and rolling the big man over, expertly applying an impressive STFU. Big Show is in obvious pain, and he is unable to reach the ropes due to his back. With his injury obviously worse, the big man eventually passes out. The official calls for the bell, and Cena quickly releases the hold for the victory.
Winner: John Cena (10:28)
After the match, Big Show is out cold. Even Cena seems surprised. After bidding Cena from the ring, the official begins to check on Big Show. After noting the severity of Show’s injury, the official calls for more assistance. Several officials and medics make their way to the ring and roll the big man over on his back. Show wakes up, and begins to scream in agony. He nails an official, demanding everyone leave him alone. The team backs up, as Show desperately crawls out of the ring, cringing in agony. As he stumbles up the entrance ramp, Show falls to the ground, clutching his back yet again. The team eventually begins to help Big Show again, and they assist him to the back. While this is going on, the broadcast team notes they’ve never seen the Big Show in this position. Even the most powerful superstars in the World Wrestling League are vulnerable. They note that Show’s injury is likely very severe and needs to be taken seriously.
A video package plays, showcasing the soon to debut Hart Foundation. Teddy Hart, Harry Smith, and T.J. Wilson speak of their family’s history in the wrestling business, and how it is their turn to carry the torch. They say they have a legacy to continue, and the same fire that burned in the Harts of the past burns in their “hearts” as well.
Backstage, Batista is watching the Big Show-Cena contest from his personal lockeroom. The big man stretches for the main event tonight, remaking, “I know what that’s like…I know what that’s like.” Further backstage, Jeremy Borash is standing by with The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels. Borash says that Michaels is Mr. WrestleMania, and he showed the world why last night. Borash asks Michaels about his contest with Sting, and Michaels says that the match really wasn’t about him – it was about Sting. Michaels says that Sting has left a legacy that will carry on after him, and the older Michaels gets, he begins to do the same thing. Michaels says that he needs to begin to give back to the younger wrestlers, to truly leave his mark on the younger talent on Raw before he departs. Michaels says he still has a lot of fight left in him, and The Icon has quite a few more matches in the tank, but when the time comes, Michaels wants to ensure that his character, as well as his accomplishments, is remembered as being one of the best. Borash remarks as Michaels leaves that The Heartbreak Kid is a true legend. A commercial break begins.
Back from the break, Konnan enters a public lockeroom and finds Homicide and Hernandez there. Konnan remarks that what happened at WrestleMania cannot be allowed to happen again. Konnan says it was Hassan that cost them their match at WrestleMania, and if they want to continue to be the top tag-team on Raw, they cannot allow their interests to be compromised by anyone. Hernandez and Homicide then begin to speak Spanish and joke about Big Show’s injury.
Big Show is being assisted by officials backstage. He is in absolute agony. Clutching his back, he falls to one knee. One official mentions that he should consider going to the hospital, and Show calls Cena a son of a bitch. Show falls to the ground, and the officials comments that more assistance will be needed. Randy Orton is backstage and he charges into Mark Henry’s lockeroom. Orton says that Henry had no right interjecting himself into his business, and the Legend Killer says he’s coming for Triple H – not Henry. Henry grabs Orton and slams him against a wall, holding him there. Henry tells Orton to listen – that he is no longer Orton’s bodyguard. Henry says he’s nobody’s servant, and it will be a cold day in hell when Orton disrespects he or Teddy again. Henry says tonight, they’re on the same page, but at Backlash, it’s every man for himself.
Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin make their way to the ring. Shelley and Sabin greet the fans and then await their opponents. Their opponents are The Queen’s Men, William Regal and Paul Burchill. The British men mouth to Sabin and Shelley before the match, and the Machineguns respond in kind. The bell rings, as Shelley and Regal begin the contest.
William Regal & Paul Burchill vs. Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin
This is the classic big team against little team match through and through. Sabin and Shelley mouth throughout the match, but the Queen’s Men do their share of smack talking as well. The big men are able to isolate Sabin and Shelley in spurts, but the Machineguns always battle back. At one point, Sabin takes Regal and Burchill out with a flying Senton over the top rope. The match changes pace and dynamic, as both teams struggle for supremacy. The match culminates after a long isolation of Sabin by Burchill and Regal. Sabin is able to hit an Enzenguiri out of nowhere on Burchill before making the tag to Shelley. Shelley cleans house on Regal and Burchill and the Machineguns finish the job with a kicking combination to Burchill for the victory.
Winners: Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley (7:49)
After the match, Sabin and Shelley celebrate their victory. Burchill and Regal are furious in the ring. The broadcast team compliments both teams on a well fought contest. A commercial break begins as Shelley and Sabin celebrate on the entrance ramp.
Back from the commercial break, a video package heirs for Backlash. The broadcast team announces that a Fatal-Fourway for the WWE Championship is already confirmed for the event between Triple H, Mark Henry, Randy Orton, and the returning Batista. Backstage, Borash is standing by with Batista. Borash asks Batista what’s on his mind as he prepares to return in the main event tonight. Batista says that there’s one thing that rehabbing gives you a chance to do – reflect. Batista says he’s reflected on a lot during his time off – his injury, his career in the World Wrestling League thus far, and his relationships with figures like Triple H and Randy Orton. Batista says that at one time he considered both of them friends, but that has changed – especially in Randy Orton’s case. Batista says that no matter how much he and Triple H hated one another, there was always a common respect – a certain warrior’s code, but that’s not the case with Randy Orton. Batista says that Orton values nothing but himself, and that will ultimately be his demise. Batista says that at Backlash, he will show the world how much he’s missed being a champion.
Chris Jericho sits alone in a foyer, his head down and a defeated look about him. Jericho is then greeted by Vince McMahon. McMahon says that’s no way for a superstar of the year to look, and Jericho admits he doesn’t feel like a superstar of the year after WrestleMania. Jericho says it’s as if the Undertaker took something from him, and after pondering the statement, Vince says he thinks he can give Jericho a chance to get that “something” back. Vince says that Ric Flair discussed a number one contender’s match for the WWE Tag-Team Championships to take place next week on Raw, and if Jericho can find a partner, Vince will allow him to participate. Jericho tells McMahon that tag-team titles won’t make him feel better, and Vince agrees, but says winning will make Jericho feel better. Jericho stands up and tells Vince he’ll find a partner before walking off.
Chris Masters makes his way to the ring, set for action against Carlito. Carlito soon follows, and the two men stare one another down before the contest. As the bell rings, they continue to angrily stare each other down.
Chris Masters vs. Carlito
Carlito and Chris Masters know one another well, and thus are able to wrestle expertly against one another. Several times the two men are able to anticipate what the other is thinking. Carlito is sly throughout, quickly countering Masters and attempting many quick pins. The Masterpiece is able to survive, and slowly begins to wear Carlito down as the contest continues. Masters is able to force Carlito to carry his weight at times with several headlocks and chinlocks. Masters slows the pace to benefit him, but he is unable to apply the Masterlock. The match culminates when Carlito comes back off the ropes at Masters with a Springboard Elbow attempt. Carlito connects and then cockily applies the Masterlock to Masters. The Masterpiece soon reverses and applies his version of the Full-Nelson to Carlito. Carlito attempts to counter the move by kicking off the turnbuckle, but his attempts are futile as Masters merely gains more leverage. Carlito eventually succumbs to the move and the official calls for the bell. Chris Masters has earned the last laugh on this day.
Winner: Chris Masters (8:10)

The World Wrestling League Presents: Impact
April 9, 2009
From Pepsi Center, Denver, Colorado
A WrestleMania video package begins the show, and several of the amazing moments from WrestleMania 25 are discussed by Mike Tenay and Mick Foley. At the forefront of their discussion is the victory by undefeated and new NWA World Heavyweight Champion Samoa Joe against the Rated R Superstar Edge. Video footage from the contest is shown, and Samoa Joe is shown celebrating with his newly won championship. The video footage is soon interrupted by the new NWA World Heavyweight Champion himself, and Samoa Joe makes his way to the ring, dressed to compete. The broadcast team announces that tonight’s main event will pit the new champion against the Irishman Finlay. They also mention that Bryan Danielson is scheduled to do battle against Petey Williams. A number one contender’s match will take place for the right to challenge Rob Van Dam for the Television Championship, a Triple-Threat encounter between Eric Young, Evan Bourne, and Elijah Burke.
Samoa Joe is given a microphone and he announces that a new era has arrived on Impact. Joe says that the reign of the undefeated Samoan Submission Machine has begun, and the reign of sir cry a lot and his slut friend is over. Joe says that at WrestleMania, he made Edge pass out, something he will not hesitate to do again should Edge evoke his rematch clause. Joe says he’s heard the rumors about Edge going crazy after WrestleMania, pulling his hair out and not sleeping well, but Joe says that’s what happens when you mess with him. Joe says he told Edge he would take him to a place he’s never been. Joe says he told Edge that he was not joking around, and maybe Edge got the message. Joe says one thing is for certain – before WrestleMania he was the hunter, but now he is the hunted. Joe says it doesn’t matter who comes – they will come face to face with reality just as Edge did. Joe says he heard the talk from John Cena about putting people on notice. Joe says that if Cena wants some…he can come get some. Joe says nobody should mess with him, “Because I will come for you.” Joe says he’s taking the most prestigious world championship in the league to another level, and no one will be able to stop him. Joe says tonight, Finlay better prepare himself. Joe tosses the microphone on the ground, but suddenly, Edge comes running from the crowd, sliding under the bottom rope.
Edge tackles Joe to the canvas, but the Samoan Submission Machine soon reverses and he and Edge roll around the ring, exchanging right hands. Their brawl soon spills to the outside of the ring, and Edge bashes Joe’s head off the announce table. Edge then retrieves a steel chair from the timekeeper, but Joe ducks the attempted shot. Joe catches Joe with a nasty kick to the face, forcing Edge to drop the chair. Joe is about to bash Edge in the head with the steel weapon when Lita comes out of nowhere, grabbing the chair from behind. Joe turns his attention to her, but she scurries away. Officials invade the scene, holding Edge and Joe apart just as they did before WrestleMania. Edge has an absolutely demented look on his face, but Joe looks intense as well. The broadcast team speculates that the ordeal between the two men is far from over. A commercial break begins as Joe desperately attempts to get another shot at Edge.
Back from the break, we learn from the broadcast team that Edge and Lita have been escorted from the premises by police and that they will not be seen for the rest of the evening. They also announce that Jim Cornette has made a phenomenal match for Backlash –a rematch between Samoa Joe and Edge for the NWA World Heavyweight Championship. This time, the contest will be a Last Man Standing Match.
Petey Williams is backstage, standing by with Candice Michelle. Candice asks about Williams’ match with Bryan Danielson, and Williams calls Daniels an American pansy. Williams says he’s not the American Dragon – he’s an American sissy. Williams says he was very close to becoming Mr. Money in the Bank at WrestleMania, and he intends to make a statement tonight on Impact. Williams says that Bryan Danielson may be one of the most fundamentally sound wrestlers in the league today, but he is at the top of his game and he doesn’t intend to lose. Williams says that everyone is beatable – even Samoa Joe, and that tonight, all the wrestling ability in the world won’t save Danielson. Williams says he doesn’t plan to tap, but he has a move of his own Danielson may want to watch out for – the most dangerous finishing maneuver in sports entertainment. Williams says that tonight will be a good night for Team Canada. Eric will earn the right to challenge Rob Van Dam for the Television Championship, and he will defeat Rob Van Dam. Evan Bourne makes his way to the ring, followed by Elijah Burke and thirdly Eric Young. The broadcast team points out that all three are deserving competitors, but all three will have their hands full with Television Champion Rob Van Dam.
Television Championship – #1 Contender’s Triple-Threat Match
Evan Bourne vs. Eric Young vs. Elijah Burke
The match is a thrilling one as all three men attempt to gain a victory and the number one contender’s position. The contest is fast-paced, heated, and well-wrestled by all three men involved. Burke is the first man to nearly achieve victory after grabbing Young’s tights in a pinning predicament. Even Bourne showcases his high-flying ability throughout the match, leaping from the ring to take out Burke with a Corkscrew Springboard Senton. Bourne also connects with a Flying Hurricarrana attempt on Young that sends the Canadian crashing into a ringpost. The match culminates when Elijah Burke nails Bourne with a series of right hands. Burke knocks him down, but Young comes from behind to roll Burke up for the victory.
Winner: Eric Young (6:42)
Young rolls from the ring, clutching his shoulder in obvious pain. Showtime shakes it off, and celebrates with the fans at ringside. Burke is furious in the ring. The broadcast team looks forward to a championship match between Rob Van Dam and Eric Young next week on Impact. Showtime continues to celebrate with the fans as he makes his way up the entrance ramp.
After a commercial break, a video package plays showcasing the tremendous fall Big Show suffered at the hands of John Cena at WrestleMania in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. The package also highlights their match earlier in the week on Raw. Big Show is shown passing out to the STFU. He then is shown being assisted by officials backstage. It is revealed that Big Show is believed to be suffering from a severe back injury MRI results have displayed no broken bones in the back.
Bobby Lashley makes his way to the ring to a huge ovation from the fans in attendance. Lashley is dressed in wrestling attire, even though he is not slated to compete tonight on Impact. Lashley gets on the microphone and says that at WrestleMania, it was an honor to represent his country. Lashley says that he’s relived the moment several times in his head. He says that defeating Muhammad Hassan and the Latin-American Exchange was quite the accomplishment, and it was an honor to team with A.J. Styles and Kurt Angle. Lashley says that people that hate America don’t understand the nature of freedom and he goes on to say that freedom isn’t free. Lashley says that fighting men and women all over America have paid the price for freedom, and anyone who disrespects those men and women doesn’t deserve to stand as part of the league. He says that Muhammad Hassan has never risked his life for anything, and neither has the Latin-American Exchange. Lashley says that he’s served alongside men and women who have died in service to this country, and they deserve the utmost respect. Lashley says that his victory at WrestleMania last night is dedicated to all the veterans who serve this country. He then asks those who have served in attendance to stand. Several veterans in attendance stand up, and Lashley leads the rest of the fans in giving them a standing ovation. Lashley leaves the ring with a salute, and makes his way backstage as Bryan Danielson begins his entrance. Lashley and Danielson shake hands, as we head to a commercial break.
Back from the break, Petey Williams makes his entrance. The fans give Williams a hostile welcome as he cockily mouths to Danielson. The official rings the bell and the match begins.
Bryan Danielson vs. Petey Williams
Danielson and Williams tear down the house with a superb contest. Williams wrestles with his usual intensity, and Danielson echoes with tremendous fighting spirit of his own. The result is a very intense contest that sees both men busted open. Williams begins to bleed from his mouth while Danielson receives a nasty cut on the side of his head courtesy of a ringpost. Early on, Danielson attempts to wrestle at a slow pace, dueling Williams technically on the canvas. Williams takes the contest to the air when he can, nailing Danielson with some big moves. Danielson wrestles well, but Williams doesn’t make any mistakes. The two men fight on and go back and forth, almost perfectly even until Williams connects with a Tornado DDT. Danielson is dimmed by this big move from the Canadian Destroyer, and Williams begins to work on Danielson a bit. Busted open early, it is in this sequence Williams is able to ram Danielson into the ringpost, causing the American Dragon to bleed as well. At one point, Williams begins to mouth to the fans on the outside, and Danielson capitalizes, throwing all his weight into a huge right hook that takes Williams down. Back in the ring, both men continue to fight on – showing no signs of quit. Danielson manages to stay away from the Canadian Destroyer, but he is unable to apply any moves of his own. The American Dragon tries to apply the Crippler’s Crossface three times, but Williams counters each attempt. The match culminates when an exhausted Danielson lifts Williams for a slam attempt, but the Canadian Destroyer lands on his feet. Danielson turns, and Williams nails him with the Canadian Destroyer, covering for the victory after a well fought match by two of the best athletes on Impact.
Winner: Petey Williams (13:41)
The fans heap disapproval on Williams as he exhaustingly crawls up the entrance ramp. Danielson cringes in the ring, furious with himself for letting the contest slip away. Williams stumbles from the arena, as Danielson looks on. The broadcast team praises both men for a superb contest.
Backstage, Rob Van Dam is walking down a corridor. Van Dam runs into Hardcore Holly and Ted DiBiasi Jr. and Holly asks about facing Eric Young next week for the Television Championship. Van Dam says that no championship in the business has been held longer by Mr. Thursday Nights than the Television title. Van Dam reminds Holly that he holds the record for the longest TV title reign. He says that Eric Young has a reputation for doing whatever it takes – taking big risks and being willing to bleed for a win, but Van Dam says his efforts won’t be enough. Van Dam says he will be ready, and Holly says that’s good to hear. Van Dam asks about who will challenge Holly and DiBiasi for the tag-team gold, and Holly says they’re still waiting for Jim Cornette to inform them when their next match will be. Van Dam says if he knows Jim Cornette, they won’t have to wait long. DiBiasi says he’s spoiling for a fight anyway, as the three men part ways. A commercial break takes place.
Bryan Danielson is making his way from the arena backstage, a towel draped over his shoulder and a water bottle in his hand, when he is approached by John Coachman. Coach asks Danielson about his loss to Williams, and Danielson admits that Williams got the job done tonight – that he was one step ahead of Danielson when it counted most. Danielson says that Williams knows that on any given night, the match could go either way, and Danielson says that’s why he’s challenging Williams to a rematch next week on Impact. Danielson says that Williams won’t be able to beat him twice.
Backstage, Bobby Lashley has returned to his lockeroom. Lashley hears a knock on the door, and is surprised to see Raw’s Chris Jericho appear. Jericho says that he’s been feeling a little down after his loss at the hands of the Undertaker at WrestleMania, and Jericho tells Lashley about his conversation with Vince McMahon Monday evening on Raw. Jericho says that tag-team gold would mean a lot to him, and Jericho says that Lashley would love to get his hands on LAX one more time. Jericho says that next week, he and Lashley should team up to earn the right to challenge the Latin-American Exchange for tag-team gold. Lashley considers the proposition, and then says he’ll need some time to make up his mind. Jericho tells Lashley he knows he’ll make the right decision before leaving. Lashley sits down, and seems to be considering Jericho’s offer.
Finlay makes his way to the ring for the main event of the evening against Samoa Joe. The broadcast team speculates that Finlay will get a fight in Samoa Joe. The NWA World Heavyweight Champion makes his way to the ring, and a long staredown begins between him and Finlay. The official calls for the bell, and the main event begins.
Main Event – Non-Title Match
Samoa Joe(c) vs. Finlay
The contest is predictably a very physical one, and Finlay certainly does not back down against the undefeated champion. Joe and Finlay exchange hold and counter-hold early on, and the Irishman appears to be in surprisingly good shape. Finlay is able to muster some hard hitting offense, and he and Joe exchange blow after blow and move after move for a good while. Eventually, Joe’s superior conditioning begins to show. Finlay catches a roundhouse kick but Joe fires another high kick that sends Finlay sprawling from the ring. Shortly thereafter, Joe slams Finlay into a set of steel steps. Joe then sends Finlay back into the ring where he begins to work on an injured right arm. Joe uses many different submissions to weaken the body part, before Finlay manages to muster another rally. Joe ducks a clothesline and connects with a Musclebuster before locking in the Coquina Clutch. Finlay succumbs to the move, and the official calls for the bell. Joe is still undefeated.
Winner: Samoa Joe (10:56)
Joe celebrates his win in the ring, while Finlay clutches his arm. The Samoan Submission Machine celebrates with his title, as the broadcast team looks forward to him facing Edge at Backlash in a Last Man Standing contest. Suddenly, Joe is surprised when Raw’s John Cena appears on the entrance ramp, staring him down. Cena is holding his Money in the Bank contract.
Joe and Cena stare one another down, and Joe motions for Cena to come to the ring. Cena merely smiles, remarking, “Not yet…” before holding his briefcase in the air. The fans roar for both men as the show comes to a close.

The World Wrestling League Presents: Smackdown
April 10, 2009
From Pepsi Center, Denver, Colorado
A WrestleMania video package begins the show, highlighting many of the incredible moments from WrestleMania 25. Christopher Daniels is shown celebrating after winning the World Heavyweight Championship, and Sting is shown exiting the arena after his amazing encounter with Shawn Michaels. The broadcast team welcomes us to the show, and announces that we are to hear from Sting tonight in a special farewell speech. They also announce a blockbuster ten man five on five main event, featuring the likes of Christopher Daniels, Brock Lesnar, JBL, Kurt Angle, and Muhammad Hassan.
Christian Cage then makes his way to the ring, set for action against Rey Mysterio. Mysterio then makes his way to the ring. The fans cheer both men, as the official prepares for the opening contest of the evening.
Christian Cage vs. Rey Mysterio
The two Money in the Bank participants wrestle an evenly matched contest. Rey seems to control the early stages of the match with his high-flying offense, but he takes a big risk that turns the contest in Christian’s favor. Rey is poised to fly over the ropes at Christian with a Crossbody attempt, but Captain Charisma manages to avoid Mysterio, causing Rey to crash into the canvas. From this point, Christian rolls Rey back into the ring and forces him to wrestle from the ground up. Christian uses the Anaconda Vice on two separate occasions to work on Mysterio. Rey battles back, and the two men continue to battle. Their contest match ends when Christian sends Rey into the corner. Christian charges but Rey gets a boot up. Rey kicks up on the top turnbuckle and floats over Christian with a Sunset Flip into a Jackknife. Christian kicks out, and Mysterio heads to the top again. Mysterio attempts another dropkick, but Christian catches him in midair with a dropkick of his own. Christian lifts Rey, pulling the trigger on the Unprettier for the victory.
Winner: Christian Cage (8:57)
Christian celebrates his victory with the fans for a period, but then Rey gets to his feet. The two men stare at one another and then shake hands once more. Rey celebrates with Christian, raising his hand in the air. Mysterio then exits the arena, leaving Christian to continue his festivities with the fans.
Backstage, the new World Heavyweight Champion Christopher Daniels is standing in front of the camera, his title over his shoulder. Daniels looks intensely into the camera, and then begins to speak. He says that as many of the fans already know, he defeated Brock Lesnar to capture the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania. Daniels says the moment was the crown jewel of his career, and he’ll never forget the magic of that night. Daniels says that being a world champion can never be explained fully into you’ve held the title in your hands. Daniels says there’s something else he can’t explain – why people like Brock Lesnar keep insisting he’s a fluke. Daniels says he’s been getting mail all week – some people love him and others hate him. Daniels says his initial love in the wrestling business was pleasing the fans, and if it weren’t for the many fans around the globe, he wouldn’t be clutching this title. Daniels says he’s far from being a fluke, and his intention as a champion will be the same intention he’s had from the very beginning – pleasing the fans and giving everything he has to be the greatest. Daniels says he is the Fallen Angel, and he is the World Heavyweight Champion regardless of what Brock Lesnar has to say about it. Daniels says tonight, Lesnar can convert his talk the previous week into action in the ring.
A commercial break takes place, and back from the break, a video package plays highlighting the Golden Eagles and their debut next on Smackdown. Both brothers wrestled at Iowa State University under Olympic Gold Medalist Cael Sanderson, and both won a combined total of three hundred ninety seven matches. The two brothers are identical twins from College Station, Texas.
The Golden Eagles make their debut entrance and the broadcast team comments about their potential here in the company. It is also mentioned that the Hart Foundation will debut next week on Raw. The Eagles await their opponents and Paul London and Brian Kendrick make their way to the ring. Both teams seem pumped up about the match.
Nicholas Rodgers & Nathan Rodgers vs. Paul London & Brian Kendrick
The Hooligans and Golden Eagles shake hands before the contest, and the match does not disappoint. The Golden Eagles make a thrilling debut, forced to face the high-flying duo of London and Kendrick. The contest is nearly even, with the Eagles resorting to their amateur backgrounds on several occasions. They use the suplex effectively, as well as several takedowns and submission holds to force London and Kendrick to wrestle from the ground up. The high-flying duo is able to showcase their tremendous athleticism as well, catching the Eagles off guard with quick tags and double-team maneuvers. The match comes to a close when Kendrick lands on his feet after an attempted German Suplex from Nathan Rodgers. Kendrick attempts a kick but Nathan catches the leg, taking Kendrick down with a dragon screw. Nathan quickly heads to the mat, locking in a well-placed Triangle Choke. Kendrick quickly succumbs.
Winners: Nicholas Rodgers & Nathan Rodgers (7:04)
Following the match, the Eagles celebrate as they journey up the entrance ramp. The broadcast team comments about their exceptional prowess in the ring, and they are compared to the World’s Greatest Tag-Team, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin.
Backstage, Brock Lesnar storms into Shane McMahon’s office. Brock demands to know when his rematch will be, and insists that Daniels winning the championship at WrestleMania was indeed a fluke. Lesnar says there’s no way Daniels will ever defeat him twice. Shane says before Lesnar barges into his office without knocking, he should consider the fact the rematch clause in his contract is only valid upon approval by a General Manager. Shane says that in Brock’s case, the GM is him. Shane says that Lesnar will get his rematch at Backlash, and we’ll see if Christopher Daniels really is a fluke. Lesnar seems pleased and triumphantly leaves the office. A break takes place.
After the break, Sting makes his way to the ring and the fans begin to shower him with a tremendous ovation. Highlights are shown of Sting’s final match against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 25. Sting steps into the ring, and begins to speak. Sting says that everyone knows last night was his last match, and he’d like to thank Shane McMahon for allowing him to say a few words. Sting says that since he entered the world of professional wrestling all those years ago, he’s been amazed by the reception he’s received. Sting says there is nothing greater than the thrill of wrestling on the grandest stages, and last night was no exception. Sting says that he and Shawn Michaels put on one hell of a show, and nobody will ever take that away from him. Sting says he’d have loved to have won the match against Michaels, but it just wasn’t meant to be. Sting says that occasionally in this business, two men can step into the ring and both walk away winners, and that’s what happened last night. He says that tonight, he wants to make one thing clear – not a thing in his wrestling career that has been great would be possible without the fans. Sting says when he listens to the fans, he remembers the drive within him. Sting says when he listens to the fans he’s convinced he wants to stay, but he knows it’s time. Sting says that he doesn’t want to be the guy that hangs around too long – the guy that wrestles one match too many and pays for it for the rest of his life. Sting says that his time has come, and he wants to tell everyone thanks.
Muhammad Hassan and Daivari interrupt and make their way to the ring. Both men are dressed to compete. Sting immediately takes off his jacket, preparing for a fight. Hassan and Daivari get in the ring, and Hassan immediately retrieves a microphone. Hassan tells Sting that his farewell has been long coming. Hassan says that it is because of people like Sting that he has been slowed in his career. Hassan says that “Christian” men like Sting and Shawn Michaels are the reason hostilities exist between him and the fans. Hassan says people like Sting and Shawn Michaels brainwash people into hating him. Sting says that he has never had a problem with Hassan until now. Sting says that Hassan is a loud, whiny, obnoxious egotist. Hassan gets in his face and Sting says it’s true. Sting says that Hassan has all the potential in the world – that he may very well be the most gifted rising star in this business, but he conducts himself entirely the wrong way. Hassan says that Sting needs to stop running his mouth and punch him. Hassan says that they need to settle the issue right now, because he is tired of people hating him. Hassan says that he is the epitome of an American success story, and yet Americans cling to people like Kurt Angle and A.J. Styles without giving him a chance. Hassan says that people call him a terrorist, but people like Sting, Shawn Michaels, Kurt Angle, and A.J. Styles are the real terrorists. Sting says that Bobby Lashley recognized the troops on Impact, but nobody ever recognizes the men and women who served alongside Americans in Afghanistan’s freedom fighters. Hassan says that nobody ever recognizes the hoards of Latin Americans that flocked across American borders to fight in the Gulf War, and both World Wars. Hassan says that the “Anglos” are very racist, self-centered people, and Sting is one of them. Hassan tells Sting that if his faith is so strong, then face him now.
Sting says that Hassan is going about this situation the entirely wrong way. Hassan is too concerned with the discrimination pitted against him to realize that he is the one causing his own grief. Sting says that Hassan came into this company complaining, and that’s all he’s done for the past two years. Sting says that Hassan and Daivari are gifted athletes, but they’ll never get anywhere with their attitudes. Sting says as for facing Hassan, he’s not going to allow Hassan to antagonize him into some sort of religious, cultural ordeal.
Suddenly, Hassan slaps Sting in the face. This upsets Sting, and he angrily stares down Hassan. Hassan glares back, poised for a fight. Hassan yells at Sting, “Fight back American!” but Sting does not do so. Instead, he turns his other cheek towards Hassan, quoting a passage from the Bible. Sting says that if your enemy slaps you on one cheek, offer unto him the other. Hassan seems flabbergasted, before slapping Sting again. Sting stares down Hassan, and then insists yet again he won’t be goaded into a confrontation. Sting says that his wrestling days are over. Hassan says that Sting may not be able to wrestle, but he can fight, and after the disrespect he’s been shown by the likes of Kurt Angle and A.J. Styles, Hassan wants a fight.
Suddenly, Hassan and Daivari attack Sting, Hassan beginning the assault by nailing Sting with the microphone. The two men begin to stomp away at Sting in the corner, but their assault does not last very long. Kurt Angle charges towards the ring, followed shortly by A.J. Styles. Kurt ducks a right hand from Hassan before nailing Daivari with the Angle Slam. Almost instantaneously, Styles flies over the top at Hassan with a big flying forearm. Hassan and Daivari both roll out of the ring, scurrying up the entrance ramp as Styles and Angle look on. Angle helps Sting to his feet, and the three men stare down Hassan and Daivari. The crowd chants very profound statements at Hassan and Daivari. The broadcast team reminds everyone that Angle, Styles, Hassan, and Daivari will meet in the Main Event tonight, as will Brock Lesnar and Christopher Daniels. Hassan looks livid as a commercial break begins.
Following the break, Kid Kash makes his way to the ring, poised for action. He awaits his opponent, and KENTA makes his way to the ring as well. The broadcast team states that this should be an interesting Cruiserweight matchup.
Kid Kash vs. KENTA
The Cruiserweight battle does not deviate from usual cruiserweight contests, as Kash and KENTA take to the sky early and often. The newly signed KENTA continues to impress with his unorthodox offense and mastery of the martial arts. KENTA shows shades of Rob Van Dam with his mastery of using kicks to change the pace of a match. He also displays solid mat wrestling ability. Kash manages to work on the arm, but ultimately KENTA proves superior. The match culminates after KENTA connects with a huge diving headbutt before delivering Go to Sleep for the victory.
Winner: KENTA (6:30)
After the match, Kenta celebrates his victory with the fans. Backstage, Todd Grisham is standing by with Todd Grisham. Grisham asks Guererro about the possibility of challenging Low-Ki for the Cruiserweight Championship, and Guererro admits that Low-Ki is currently at the top of his game. Guererro says that eventually, every run comes to an end, and Guererro will once again takes his place. Guererro compares himself to Triple H, stating that he always finds a way to wind up back on top. Guererro says that next week, he’s going to issue a challenge right out in that ring. Guererro says he’s going to challenge any wrestler on the roster, Cruiserweight or not, to step into the ring with him, and he’s going to defeat them. Guererro says that Latino Heat is back, and before long, he’s coming back for the Cruiserweight title.
JBL and Tomko are in their lockeroom, preparing for the main event. JBL laughs and comments their match with the Dudley Boys at WrestleMania was a pretty hard hitting one. Tomko says those types of matches suit him best. JBL says that he doesn’t like the idea of teaming with Hassan and Daivari, but they’ll have to get the job done tonight. Tomko says Hassan and Daivari may not even get into the match, because he plans to make quick work of their opponents. JBL says that he talked to “Brock” and he’s ready. JBL says that tonight, he and Tomko will show everyone why they’re the most dominating tag-team of all time. A commercial break begins.
After the break, Trish Stratus is standing by with the man set to compete next against Cody Rhodes, Montel Vontavious Porter. When asked about the match, Porter says that tonight is about taking care of business. Porter says he shows up every night ready to go, regardless of if his title is on the line or not. Porter says Rhodes is not ready for what’s coming for him. MVP says, “I’m coming,” before walking off. Stratus seems very impressed at MVP’s intensity heading into his match with Rhodes.
Cody Rhodes makes his entrance first, and the broadcast team speculates that Rhodes will have to be at the top of his game against the United States Champion. MVP makes his entrance, and everyone gives him a huge ovation. Rhodes walks up to MVP, giving him a shove before the match officially begins. MVP tackles Rhodes to the ground, as the referee calls for the bell.
Montel Vontavious Porter(c) vs. Cody Rhodes
MVP shows a mean streak throughout the match with Rhodes seldom seen before. He keeps up the pressure, using several technical holds and straight hard nose offense to keep Rhodes off balance. Rhodes is not able to successfully withstand the initial onslaught from an angry MVP, causing the match to end rather quickly. Porter nails Rhodes with the Playmaker, scoring a rather decisive victory over a talented Cody Rhodes.
Winner: MVP (4:31)
After the match, Porter stays in the ring while Rhodes gets to his feet. Rhodes stands, and MVP begins to exchange words with him. Porter asks Rhodes, “You want to shove me?” MVP then shoves Rhodes before the young superstar retreats by rolling from the ring. Rhodes slumps up the entrance ramp, as Porter angrily looks on. The broadcast team comments that Porter is very intense as of late.
A video package is shown highlighting the events that have occurred throughout the week – the Fatal-Fourway announced for Backlash by General Manager Ric Flair, and the Last Man Standing match set to take place between Samoa Joe and Edge. It is also mentioned that Christopher Daniels will defend his title against Brock Lesnar in a WrestleMania rematch set to take place at Backlash. A final commercial break takes place before the main event.
After the break, Hassan and Daivari enter first to severe heat from the crowd. JBL and Tomko enter next in a limousine, and Brock follows. Styles makes his entrance, followed by the Cruiserweight Champion, Low-Ki. Angle then enters, mouthing to Hassan and Daivari from across the ring. Christopher Daniels makes his entrance, and the champion is greeted by long-time friend A.J. Styles. The Undertaker is the last man to make his entrance, and the broadcast team comments about his match against Chris Jericho at WrestleMania. Brock Lesnar steps forward for his team, and Christopher Daniels steps forward as well. Brock is then persuaded by JBL that Tomko should begin the match. Daniels and Tomko stare one another down as the official calls for the bell.
Main Event – 5-5 Tag-Team Match
Christopher Daniels(c) & A.J. Styles & Kurt Angle & Undertaker & Low-Ki(c) vs.
JBL(c) & Tomko(c) & Brock Lesnar & Muhammad Hassan & Daivari
The huge main event is a blockbuster that sees both teams wrestle superbly. The heated exchange between Angle, Styles, Hassan, and Daivari soon rears its head yet again as Angle manages to rip Daivari apart early in the match. Daivari only manages to escape when Tomko nails Angle with a clothesline while the referee is turned away. The match settles into a long, bitter struggle, as both teams hack away. Low-Ki, the Cruiserweight Champion, is isolated, but he manages to escape after countering a Powerbomb attempt from JBL. Brock Lesnar enters the contest only after Christopher Daniels has been unfairly double-teamed and knocked to the ground by Hassan and Daivari. Lesnar tees off on the new World Heavyweight Champion and dominates him before Daniels too counters to buy himself time to make a tag. Daniels reenters the contest later, eventually nailing Lesnar, Hassan, JBL, and Daivari with a big Springboard Senton over the top rope. Daivari is busted open in the match when he brawls with AJ Styles on the outside. Styles nails Daivari with a catapult directly into the ring post followed by big DDT. JBL and Tomko seem on the verge of winning the match for their team when they target Daniels with their Clothesline from Hell-Chopblock combination, but Daniels leaps in the air, avoiding Tomko and nailing JBL with a dropkick. A.J. Styles takes a big risk for his team, at one point targeting Lesnar for the Spiral Tap. Brock rolls out of the way to avoid the move. Lesnar then attempts to lift Styles for the F5, but Styles counters with a Tornado DDT. The long contest culminates when Tomko and Angle are in the ring. Tomko attempts a slam, but Angle lands on his feet and connects with a series of uppercuts. Tomko fights back, trading right hands, before Angle ducks underneath one, pulling the trigger on the Angle Slam. Angle then locks in the Ankle Lock. Tomko tries to power out, but Angle keeps the hold. Eventually, Tomko fights to his corner, but he is unable to tag in a reaching JBL. Angle falls to the ground with a vicious grapevine on the ankle. Tomko is eventually forced to tap.
Winners: Christopher Daniels(c) & A.J. Styles & Kurt Angle & Undertaker & Low-Ki(c) (21:51)
The winners celebrate in the ring, as Styles, Daniels, and Angle raise their hands in victory. The Undertaker and Low-Ki eventually join in, and the official raises the arms of the winning team before the show comes to a close.

The Weekly Report
-Following Monday’s Raw, General Manager Ric Flair announced five blockbuster matches to take place on next week’s show. Each competitor in the Fatal-Fourway contest at Backlash will be in action against an opponent of Flair’s choosing. Randy Orton will do battle against Kofi Kingston, while Mark Henry will face John Cena. Triple H will square off against Chris Masters in a non-title match, and Batista will wrestle Latin American Exchange member Hernandez.
-Also on Raw, a tag-team turmoil match will take place to determine the number one contender’s for LAX’s WWE Tag-Team Championships. Chris Jericho petitioned Bobby Lashley to be his partner last Thursday evening on Impact, and Lashley accepted later in the week. Lashley and Jericho will have to win the contest on Raw however, if they want to receive a championship opportunity. This will not be an easy task, as their opponents will be The Motor City Machineguns, The Queen’s Men, and the debuting New Hart Foundation.
-Big Show’s back injury has proven very severe, but World Wrestling League officials are pleased to announce that the Big Show did not suffer from any broken vertebrae or fractured disks as previously suspected. Officials were concerned that the injury could be career threatening, but now it is believed that the Big Show merely suffered from several pinched nerves. Nonetheless, Big Show is still in severe pain as his back is very inflamed. He is not expected to appear on Raw this Monday.
-After their incredible match last week on Impact, it has been announced by General Manager Jim Cornette that Petey Williams and Bryan Danielson will wrestle again this week in a rematch requested by Danielson himself. Last week, Williams was able to defeat Danielson with the Canadian Destroyer. This week, Danielson will look to even the score.
-This week on Impact, Rob Van Dam will defend his Television Championship against Eric Young. Young earned the right to challenge Van Dam for the title last week when he defeated Evan Bourne and Elijah Burke in a Triple-Threat affair. Young has proven himself a formidable wrestler on Impact, and the Canadian will no doubt look to earn his first singles title at the expense of Mr. Thursday Nights.
-Following Muhammad Hassan’s assault last week on Sting, it has been confirmed The Icon will appear at next week’s Smackdown, reporting he has a very important announcement for Muhammad Hassan. Kurt Angle and A.J. Styles came to Sting’s defense last week, and the two men teamed with Bobby Lashley to defeat Muhammad Hassan and the Latin-American Exchange at WrestleMania 25.
-As of now, the card for Backlash…
WWE Championship Match – Fatal-Fourway
Triple H(c) vs. Randy Orton vs. Mark Henry vs. Batista
NWA World Heavyweight Championship Match – Last Man Standing
Samoa Joe(c) vs. Edge
WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match
Christopher Daniels(c) vs. Brock Lesnar

Re: WWL: The World Wrestling League
World Wrestling League Presents: Raw
April 13, 2009
From Phillips Arena, Atlanta, Georgia
A video package highlighting events from WrestleMania and last week’s Raw begins the show before the broadcast team welcomes us to the show. The contests announced last week by Ric Flair are mentioned by the broadcast team – Randy Orton against Kofi Kingston, Batista against Hernandez, Mark Henry against John Cena, and Triple H against Chris Masters. The broadcast team also discusses the Tag-Team Turmoil match to determine the number one contenders for LAX’s WWE Tag-Team Championships. It is discussed that Bobby Lashley has agreed to partner with Chris Jericho in an attempt to take the titles from LAX. First, the two of them will have to win tonight.
A limousine is shown arriving at the arena. The driver exits and heads to the rear before opening the door. Out steps Triple H, the WWE Champion. Triple H begins to make his way inside the arena, as the fans give him a huge ovation.
Backstage, Ric Flair and Vince McMahon are seated in Flair’s office. Vince asks Flair how he is doing, and the Nature Boy says well. Flair says that Backlash is already shaping up to be one hell of a pay-per-view. McMahon says that Jericho and Lashley could earn a trip to that pay-per-view tonight with a victory in the number one contender’s match. Flair says this main event feels somewhat personal to him, as all three former members of Evolution are involved. McMahon says that Flair made a good management decision by crafting the match at Backlash, but the real threat may not be anyone who was in Evolution. McMahon says that Mark Henry is the real deal, and Flair agrees, commenting that Henry is indeed the World’s Strongest Man.
Randy Orton makes his way to the ring to begin the show. Orton gets a microphone and says before his match, he has something to say. Orton says that Batista making his return has everyone excited, the exact way people were excited when he became the youngest world champion in history. Orton says that at Backlash, he’s going to silence Batista and Triple H, and excite the world again by becoming a world champion yet again. Kingston makes his way to the ring, and Orton looks like a viper ready to strike. Kingston seems prepared as well. The official calls for the bell, and the contest is set to begin.
Kofi Kingston vs. Randy Orton
Orton and Kingston wrestle a good match, with Kingston surprising Orton on several occasions. During the contest, Kingston proves he is certainly no slouch, but Orton also displays his usual prowess. Kingston gives Orton all he can handle, but the Legend Killer finds a target body part in Kingston’s right arm. Orton first injures it when he uses the steel steps on the outside to bend the arm upon stomping it. He then utilizes several keylocks and knees and stomps to the arm throughout the match. Kingston battles on, but Orton ultimately proves superior. The match culminates when Kingston heads to the top turnbuckle. He leaps at Orton for a Crossbody attempt, causing Orton to fall backwards. Orton rolls through, quickly assuming a vertical base. Kingston gets to his feet as well, but Orton pulls the trigger on an RKO in the blink of an eye. Orton pins for the victory.
Winner: Randy Orton (8:43)
Orton begins to celebrate his victory, while Kingston is motionless on the canvas, having suffered his second defeat in the course of two weeks. Orton rolls outside of the ring, and demands a microphone again. Upon getting one, he says he hopes Batista was paying attention, and he hopes Triple H was paying attention. Orton says he hopes Mark Henry was paying attention instead of giving Teddy Long a massage or eating a cheeseburger. Orton says his RKO is something that will make the difference at Backlash. Orton says he’s going to plant one of the three men in the ring with him, and walk out the WWE Champion. Orton makes his way up the entrance ramp as a commercial break begins.
Back from the break, Chris Jericho enters Bobby Lashley’s lockeroom. Jericho asks Lashley if he is ready, and Lashley says he is. Lashley says tonight, they know what they have to do – beat three other teams. Lashley says it’ll be easier said than done, but nothing a former NWA Heavyweight Champion and the 2008 Superstar of the Year can’t handle. Jericho says that he knows Lashley and himself have never teamed before, but they’ll make it work. Jericho says losing to The Undertaker won’t be how the beginning of his year is defined – he’s going to make up for that by defeating The Latin American Exchange. At the broadcast table, the broadcast team speculates Chris Jericho is simply manipulating Bobby Lashley.
Mark Henry makes his way to the ring, and the fans begin to boo him immensely. Henry then requests a microphone. He says that Randy Orton is the one who likes massages, and that when it comes to the world title, he’s all about business. Henry says that if Orton has guts, he’ll get his punk ass out here. Henry waits, but obviously Orton – having just competed – does not come. With a simple, “That’s what I thought.” Henry awaits the arrival of John Cena.
John Cena makes his entrance, but when he has just saluted the audience, Big Show rushes from the entrance ramp with a large glass vase. Show smashes Cena in the back of the head, causing Mr. Money in the Bank to fall to the ground with a sickening thud. Glass shatters everywhere, as Show begins to lift Cena to his feet. The fans and broadcast team are in shock, as Show throws Cena towards the backstage area, causing him to land on the entrance ramp. Show is sporting a large wrapping around his lower back and midsection. Show lifts Cena into the air again, this time throwing him into the wall parallel to the ramp entrance. Cena is utterly defenseless at this point. Mark Henry looks on, a sly grin on his face. Show then heads back towards the ring, picking up John Cena’s Money in the Bank contract. Show walks over to Cena, and spits on his fallen, mingled body, saying, “This should have been mine.” Show drops the briefcase, before lifting Cena over his shoulders.
The Big Show begins to walk a seemingly unconscious John Cena down the entrance ramp towards the ring. Cena has been busted wide open by the large vase. A large wound mars the back of his head. Fans are absolutely sickened by the horrendous actions from The Big Show. Show looks at Mark Henry, commenting, “He’s yours.” Show leaves, and Henry demands the official ring the bell. When Henry backs the official into a corner, the referee finally agrees to begin the match.
Mark Henry vs. John Cena
His blood already staining the ring, and the wound on the back of his head extremely severe, Cena is totally unconscious, defenseless, and in the ring with the World’s Strongest Man. Henry looks down at Cena, before lifting his fallen opponent. Henry pulls the trigger on the World’s Strongest Man, before the official begins to count the victory.
Winner: Mark Henry (00:18)
Mark Henry makes his way to the ring, leaving Cena in a motionless state. The official desperately examines the wound, calling for medical attention immediately. The broadcast team states there is little doubt Big Show sustained a severe back injury and further worsened his condition last week, but there is no excuse for his attack tonight as John Cena did not intend to purposely hurt Show.
The actions are sick, and the broadcast team speculates Show is out for revenge along with the Money in the Bank contract. They then announce they’ve received word directly from Ric Flair’s office, that The Big Show will battle John Cena at Backlash, with the Money in the Bank briefcase on the line. The broadcast team states that now both men will be heading into the contest banged up, if Cena is able to compete at all. The broadcast team further comments that it is indeed a surprise Big Show appeared at tonight’s Raw, and an even bigger surprise that he made the impact he did. Mark Henry is shown on the entrance ramp, before a commercial break begins.
Backstage, Teddy Hart and Harry Smith watch from a television monitor backstage. T.J. Wilson then enters the room, asking Hart and Smith if they’re aware of what could happen tonight. Wilson says the two of them could make history by becoming the number one contender’s for the tag-team titles in their debut match. Wilson says that would be quite a way to begin a career. Hart says they’ve all replayed the scenarios in their minds on several occasions. Hart says strategy is everything, but they’re ready. Smith says that they may be able to fly in under the radar being this is their first match, and Hart says he has a feeling just the opposite will occur. Hart says a good thing is that everyone is going to be watching and gunning for Jericho and Lashley. That may be their ticket to success. The Harts then begin to make their way towards the ring.
Backstage, Carlito is walking down a corridor when he runs into Chris Masters. Masters asks Carlito how the Masterlock felt last week, and Carlito tells Masters he can break the silly little Masterlock. Masters says Carlito was the silly one – trying to beat Masters with his own move. Carlito says it won’t be silly when he spits right in Masters’ face. Carlito says he’s not worried about him because Triple H is going to pin him tonight, anyway. Masters says Carlito is wrong, that even the WWE Champion can’t break the Masterlock. Carlito says it’s definitely possible, because the man that was the first to break it – Bobby Lashley – is here tonight on Raw. Masters seems agitated, before storming off. Carlito tells Masters he has a weggie, before laughing and walking off.
Chris Jericho and Bobby Lashley make their entrances separately, but seem on the same page for the tag-team match ahead. They are followed by the Motor City Machineguns, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin. The Hart Foundation then makes their entrance to a tremendous ovation. The last team to enter is The Queen’s Men, William Regal and Paul Burchill. The brutal Brits take their place, as the official calls for the contest to begin.
Tag-Team Turmoil - #1 Contender’s Match
William Regal & Paul Burchill vs. Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley vs. Teddy Hart and Harry Smith w/T.J. Wilson vs. Chris Jericho & Bobby Lashley
The match is a typical tag-team turmoil match, as all four teams scramble to control the pace of the contest. Bobby Lashley is by far the most powerful man in the contest. Early on, he lifts fairly sized Harry Smith into the air before giving him a press slam out of the ring. No team is able to dominate however, as the match is far too crowded for that. At one point, Chris Sabin takes out William Regal, Paul Burchill, Bobby Lashley, and Teddy Hart with a Corkscrew Senton to the outside. The next incredible moment of the match takes place when Teddy Hart and Harry Smith team to drape a fallen Alex Shelley over the guard rail. Smith holds Shelley in position, while Hart leaps at him from the turnbuckle. Both men crash to the ground, and Shelley rolls into the crowd, clutching his abdomen and stomach. Smith lifts Jericho for a Powerbomb, but Jericho counters by kneeing him before landing on his feet, taking Smith down for the Walls of Jericho. Surprisingly, Smith is able to escape the submission by making a tag. The match is fast-paced, dynamic, and always interesting. Shelly and Sabin team to nail Lashley with a kicking combination, but as he staggers backwards, Chris Jericho tags himself in the match. Sabin is the legal man, and Jericho heads to the top turnbuckle. Jericho leaps at Sabin, who tries to catch Jericho. Both men fall to the ground, and after momentum carries them to the center of the ring, Jericho emerges with the Walls of Jericho. Sabin desperately seeks to make a tag, but he is unable to do so. Chris Jericho and Bobby Lashley become the number one contenders.
Winners: Chris Jericho & Bobby Lashley (14:21)
Lashley and Jericho are ecstatic, while the broadcast team confirms it will be the Latin-American Exchange against Lashley and Jericho for the tag titles at Backlash. Jericho and Lashley celebrate their victory, before congratulating each other. A commercial break takes place, as Lashley and Jericho pose atop their turnbuckles.
Back from the break, Shawn Michaels enters and greets Manu. Michaels says that he promised something last week, that he was going to start giving back to the younger talent on the roster. Michaels tells Manu he has all the tools to be a successful wrestler – good build, the heart of a lion, and a good pedigree. Michaels says he wants to make Manu a deal. Michaels says he’s not asking to manage Manu – just to look out for him – to take him under his wing. Michaels says that next week, Manu can join him in a tag-team match. Michaels asks Manu what he thinks, and Manu agrees. The two men shake hands, but Kenny Dykstra soon appears. Dykstra says there’s no need for a love fest here because Michaels is just looking for backup. Dykstra says it’s a shame old has-beens like Michaels and Sting take the spotlight at WrestleMania from rising stars like himself. Dykstra says he heard Michaels’ comments last week about giving something back and leaving a legacy, but he wants to forge a legacy at Michaels’ expense. Dykstra says Michaels can take Manu’s fat ass, and he’ll find a partner for next week as well. Michaels says he was a punk kid too once that thought he knew everything. Michaels says if there’s one thing Dykstra needs to learn, its respect. Michaels bids Dykstra good luck finding a partner. Manu stares a whole into Dykstra as Michaels leaves.
The broadcast team at ringside announces that since Jim Cornette granted Bobby Lashley permission to come to Raw to compete with Chris Jericho, he has scheduled Chris Jericho to appear on Impact so he and Lashley can “gel” as a team. The broadcast team speaks about the upcoming Impact this Thursday, which will feature a Petey Williams-Bryan Danielson rematch, a Television Championship match between Rob Van Dam and Eric Young, and a 3-2 handicap tag-team match between Chris Jericho and Bobby Lashley, and the team of Samoa Joe, CM Punk, and Colt Cabana. Cole states Jim Cornette has slated Lashley and Jericho to compete against Impact’s best with the odds against them.
A video package heirs that hypes Backlash. At the present, five matches are set for the pay-per-view, with four of the five being championship matches, and the fifth being for the Money in the Bank briefcase. The events that transpired earlier in the evening between Big Show and John Cena are showcased yet again. Clips of Big Show slamming the glass vase into Cena’s head are shown multiple times.
The WWE Champion makes his way to the ring. Triple H is set for action in a non-title bout against Chris Masters. Chris Masters follows suit, and he cockily mouths to The Game as the two men stare one another down before the bout.
Triple H(c) vs. Chris Masters
The contest is a physical affair between two of the strongest men on Raw. Masters showcases his raw power, but Triple H is a savvy competitor even in non-title matches. The Game embarrasses Masters early in the contest by technically schooling him. Masters looks to apply the Masterlock throughout the affair, but he is never able to look the move in. He comes close on three separate occasions, but each time The Game avoids the Full Nelson. Triple H violently sends Masters into the steel steps and this signals the end for him. In the ring, Masters throws some elbows only to be blasted with a big right hand from The Game. Triple H then hits a Spinebuster before drilling Masters with a Pedigree for the victory.
Winner: Triple H(c) (7:25)
The Game triumphantly celebrates his win with the fans, clutching his WWE Championship. The broadcast team speculates The Game could be holding that championship for just a short while longer if Orton, Batista, or Henry has their way at Backlash. As Triple H poses atop a turnbuckle, a commercial break ensues.
Backstage, Chris Jericho and Bobby Lashley are standing by with Torrie Wilson. Wilson asks the two men about their confrontation with CM Punk, Colt Cabana, and Samoa Joe this Thursday on Impact. Jericho says he and Lashley may not look like the usual tag-team, but they’re fully capable of dishing out some hurt. Jericho says that Samoa Joe may have this undefeated streak thing going, but they don’t give a damn about it. Lashley says that Thursday on Impact, he and Jericho are not only going to defeat Joe, Cabana, and Punk. They’re going to also end Samoa Joe’s undefeated streak. Lashley says that Homicide and Hernandez can keep a good eye on what happens on Impact this Thursday, because it’ll be the same thing in store for them at Backlash. The newly crowned contenders walk away, obviously eager to take on Joe, Cabana, and Punk on Impact this Thursday.
The Latin-American Exchange makes their entrance. Konnan gets a microphone and begins to make fun of Chris Jericho in the ring for being 2008 Superstar of the Year. They then tell Batista to get his big ass out here, because he’s going down. Batista makes his entrance, and enters the ring to jeers from Homicide and Homicide get set to face off in the main event of the evening.
Batista vs. Hernandez w/Homicide & Konnan
The main event of the evening is just as physical as the contest between Masters and Triple H. Both big men duke it out with smashmouth offense. Homicide is a physical presence in the ring, and Batista soon realizes this. Homicide hits an Inverted Backbreaker before applying a series of holds that force Batista to wrestle from the ground up. Batista does so, battling his way back into the match. Batista and Hernandez continue to battle on, and occasionally Homicide and Konnan try to get involved. While Hernandez distracts the official, Konnan and Homicide team to clothesline Batista on the outside. The Animal responds later on when Hernandez tries to distract the official again. This time, The Animal drops Konnan with a Spinebuster. The main event of the evening culminates when Batista sets Homicide up for the Batista Bomb. Homicide hits some big right hands, forcing Batista to drop him. Homicide runs for the ropes, but Batista scores with a huge Spinebuster. Batista then sets Homicide up, pulling the trigger on the Batista Bomb for the hard fought victory.
Winner: Batista (12:37)
After the match, Homicide and Konnan violently attack Batista, teaming up execute a series of big moves. They take Batista outside the ring, and team to slam him into the steel steps. Konnan then rams The Animal with the steps. With Batista busted open, Homicide rolls him back into the ring. Suddenly, Batista catches a second win, fighting back. He throws Konnan out of the ring, and Homicide gets out of dodge. Bobby Lashley and Chris Jericho suddenly dart towards the ring, and the Latin-American Exchange is forced to escape through the crowd. Unfortunately, a downed Hernandez is still in the ring. Batista stares down Konnan and Homicide, as Lashley lifts Hernandez. Lashley drops the big man with a Dominator, and Jericho soon applies the Walls of Jericho. Lashley and Batista stare down Konnan and Homicide, while Hernandez begins to tap to the Walls of Jericho. He frantically taps the mat as the show comes to a close.

Re: WWL: The World Wrestling League
World Wrestling League Presents: Impact
April 16, 2009
From Bi-Lo Center, Greenville, South Dakota
The broadcast team welcomes viewers to the show following an opening video package. Jim Cornette immediately makes his way to the ring. Cornette is dressed lavishly and is given a microphone. The General Manager welcomes fans to the show, and then says that Impact has been interrupted and disturbed as of late. He says that last week, John Cena had the audacity to show up and stare down the NWA World Heavyweight Champion Samoa Joe. He says that Chris Jericho also decided to show up, to try and recruit Bobby Lashley to join his efforts against the Latin-American Exchange. Cornette says that he’s not stupid, and he saw a pattern developing. He says that he contacted Vince McMahon, and was informed that if Jericho wanted Bobby Lashley to team with him, he could demand a stipulation of his own. Cornette says that that’s why he made a blockbuster main event tonight. Cornette says that Lashley and Jericho will benefit from a little “warm-up” against Samoa Joe, CM Punk, and Colt Cabana. Cornette says the way he sees if, if Lashley and Jericho can handle three men in Joe, Cabana, and Punk, they’ll have no problem handling Homicide and Hernandez at Backlash. Cornette says that as for John Cena, Mr. Money in the Bank will be due an appearance on Impact, but due to Big Show’s attack, Cena is unable to “pay his dues”. Cornette says that tonight will be an Impact filled with action, and he says that next, Bryan Danielson and Petey Williams will square off for the second time in two weeks. A commercial break begins, as Cornette leaves the ring.
Back from the break, Petey Williams enters first, having a victory over Bryan Danielson in his back pocket. The broadcast team gives commentary on the closing moments of their contest from the previous week as video footage plays. Bryan Danielson enters, and the fans give him a very warm reception. He and Williams stare one another down, as the bell rings for their rematch.
Bryan Danielson vs. Petey Williams
Danielson and Williams are equally entertaining in their rematch, matching the intensity and fighting spirit displayed in their previous contest. The contest takes the form of a brawl early on as Williams tries to get inside Daniels’ head with a slap to the face. Daniels responds by throwing some vicious right hands and elbows. Their brawl heads outside the ring on several occasions, but the tempo of the match changes when Danielson utilizes a series of submissions inside the ring to target Williams’ back. Danielson is able to out duel Williams on the canvas, but Williams holds his own there – not making a costly mistake. Williams takes the contest to the air, nailing Danielson with some big moves. At one point, both men go sprawling into the stands when Williams soars at Danielson from the ring apron with a Corkscrew Moonsault. As the contest wears on, it becomes obvious to everyone in attendance the Williams and Danielson number one was no fluke, and the two men are setting the stage for another equally impressive contest. Williams attempts a Canadian Destroyer, but Danielson senses the move is coming, tossing Williams away before it can develop. Although it takes longer in their second affair, both men are eventually busted open. Williams drops Danielson with an impressive Inverted DDT following a countered Body Slam. Danielson busts Williams open later in the match with a vicious Belly to Belly Suplex from the ring apron. Momentum sends Williams crashing into the guard rail, busting his mouth open. Back in the ring shortly thereafter, Danielson applies the Sharpshooter. It appears as if Williams will submit, but he manages to reach the ropes. Suddenly, Danielson pulls him to the center of the ring yet again. Williams manages to desperately reach the ropes, but fails to regain his momentum. Williams fights on, but Danielson is eventually able to take Williams down, applying the Sharpshooter for a third time. The contest ends as Williams reaches the ropes again. This time, Danielson once again pulls him to the center of the ring. Williams desperately struggles, but loses the will to fight on. He taps to the Sharpshooter, giving Danielson the victory.
Winner: Bryan Danielson (14:25)
After the match, Danielson is exhausted, and Williams is equally fatigued. Williams rolls from the ring, clutching his back, as Danielson slowly climbs atop a turnbuckle to celebrate his win. The fans give both men a huge ovation for the outstanding rematch. The broadcast team speculates that now that the score is even, a rubber match may be necessary between the two men.
Candice Michelle is standing by with Chris Jericho and Bobby Lashley. She comments that the two of them make an odd team and asks about their main event contest tonight against Joe, Cabana, and Punk. Jericho asks what’s not to love. He says that he and Lashley are two of the biggest names in the business, and that the Latin-American Exchange won’t stand a chance against America and Canada’s best at Backlash. Lashley tells Candice that beating LAX isn’t about countries or politics – it’s about the tag-team titles. Lashley says that Jericho has given him an opportunity to wrestle LAX again, and he intends to make good on that opportunity. Lashley says that as far as tonight is concerned, the numbers may be against them, but he and Jericho are capable of beating anybody. Jericho says that Lashley is right, and Samoa Joe may be surprised when his undefeated streak comes crashing to an end.
A commercial break takes place, and we then see Jim Cornette in his office. Cornette hears a knock at the door as Hardcore Holly and Ted DiBiasi Jr. walk in. Cornette says he’s glad they came by, because he has an important announcement for them. Cornette says that next week, the two of them will be teaming to face the Second City Saints, CM Punk and Colt Cabana, and if they lose, the saints will receive a championship opportunity. Cornette tells them to come prepared, and Holly says they will. The NWA World Tag-Team Champions leave the office as Cornette focuses his attention on the television monitor.
Eric Young makes his way to the ring, set to challenge Rob Van Dam for the Television Championship. The broadcast team hypes Van Dam is likely the most dominating Television Champion in the history of professional wrestling – commenting he once held the belt for nearly two years. Van Dam awaits Eric Young, and the second member of Team Canada makes his way to the ring. Replays are shown from the Triple-Threat match Young won to earn the right to challenge Van Dam tonight.
NWA Television Championship Match
Rob Van Dam(c) vs. Eric Young
The contest is an intense affair. Young flies all over the ring and Van Dam executes a barrage of offense. Young is a smaller opponent, allowing Van Dam the chance to be versatile. At times, Mr. Thursday Nights simply overpowers Young. He also applies the occasional submission, forcing Young to wrestle from the ground up. RVD employs two chinlocks and an armbar over the course of the match, but he also is able to connect with several big kicks that leave their mark on Young. The Canadian is not short of offense of his own. At one point, Young is able to nail Van Dam with a heel kick while Van Dam is atop a turnbuckle, causing Mr. Thursday Nights to tumble out of the ring and into the guard rail. Young applies a deep keylock following this sequence, working Van Dam’s arm. Young continues to work on the arm for the duration of the contest, going back to it when he is at a disadvantage. Young applies several holds, displaying technical prowess. The broadcast team admits Young is more versatile than even they give him credit for. Young and Van Dam battle on, with both men taking the match to the sky when the opportunity presents itself. Van Dam hits a spectacular Corkscrew Moonsault for a near fall, and Van Dam misses with a Frog Splash when Young expertly rolls out of the way at the last moment. The match continues, and Young eventually slows the rigid pace yet again, applying his Modified Dragon Sleeper. At this stage, both men are absolutely exhausted. Van Dam battles out of the sleeper, and soon catches Young with a big series of kicks and Rolling Thunder. Van Dam hits another series of kicks before heading to the top rope for another Frog Splash attempt. This time, he is successful in his effort. Van Dam covers for the hard fought victory.
Winner: Rob Van Dam(c) (11:21)
Van Dam exhaustingly rolls from the ring, as the official checks on Young inside the hexagon. Van Dam clutches his championship, crawling up the entrance ramp while holding his midsection. Young slowly reaches his feet, and uses the ropes to keep his footing. The two men stare one another down, as the broadcast team speculates that Van Dam will want to see no more of Eric Young. A commercial break begins.
After the break, the NWA World Heavyweight Champion Samoa Joe makes his way to the ring. Joe tells people that he’s not like the other man that became a champion at WrestleMania. Joe says he has all the respect in the world for Christopher Daniels, that he’s more of a champion than Edge will ever be, but the two are not the same. Joe says that everyone in the world knows he’s not a fluke. Joe says that he doesn’t have anything to prove – that Edge is the one who has to prove he can beat him. Joe says that Edge has backed himself into a corner – because he’s a little bitch with an attitude problem. Joe says that he’s not only going to retain his championship, but he’s going to hurt Edge at Backlash. Joe says forget ten seconds – Edge will be lucky if he can survive the match. Joe says that when he’s through with Edge, the saying “Joe’s going to kill you” may be literal. Joe says keeping Edge down on the mat for ten seconds won’t be difficult.
Edge makes his way to the ring, Lita at his side. Joe introduces them as the lady and the tramp. Joe asks Edge to figure out which one is which. Edge tells Joe to shut up, that he’s lucky Edge is in a forgiving mood. Edge says that Joe won’t be laughing and he won’t be so arrogant when his ass is on the ground at Backlash. Joe says that Edge cannot be serious, because a real champion would step into the ring right now. Suddenly, Joe makes his way from the ring. Edge and Lita are stunned. Edge tells Lita to run and she does so. Joe charges up the entrance ramp, and Edge has little chance to escape.
Joe tackles Edge to the ground, but the Rated R Superstar quickly reverses and scores some right hands of his own. Joe reverses, and the two men begin to tumble down to the ringside area. Edge gets to his feet and hits some stomps, but Joe quickly tackles Edge again. Joe grabs a set of ring steps, hurling them at Edge as he stands. Joe lifts Edge for a move, but Edge pokes him in the eye before hitting the ground and shoving Joe into the guard rail. Joe tries to reach his feet, but Edge scampers into the crowd. As Joe tries to head after him, he is subdued by a host of security guards. Edge reaches the top of the arena and begins to taunt Joe.
The Samoan Submission Machine is furious, remaking that he’s going to kill Edge. The broadcast team says that Edge may be in Joe’s head, but that Joe certainly is adjusting to being the hunted instead of the hunter. As the two men exchange words, Joe furiously remarks that he’s going to “kill Edge”. Lita emerges from backstage, coyly taunting Joe as well. Lita gestures that the NWA World Heavyweight Championship will be in her camp soon enough. This angers Joe more. The broadcast team comments that Joe is not going to be in a good mood tonight for the main event.
Backstage, Candice Michelle is standing by with CM Punk and Colt Cabana. She asks the Second City Saints about their upcoming main event and contest against Holly and DiBiasi next week. Punk says the NWA World Tag-Team titles are probably the most prestigious in the league, and it’d be an honor to become tag-team champions, but that’s still quite some time away. Punk says that tonight their focus is going to be on Bobby Lashley and Chris Jericho. Tonight their focus is going to be on representing Impact and tonight their focus is going to be on fighting alongside the NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Samoa Joe. Cabana remarks that Punk brings up an interesting point, that Jericho isn’t even a member of the Impact roster. Cabana says that nobody from Raw is going to come into their house and win – even if he is teaming with Bobby Lashley. The two men make their way to the ring as a commercial break takes place.
Back from the break, Edge is in the parking garage. He slams his car door, gunning it and reversing, nearly running over Lita. He stops, obviously having forgotten her, to allow her in the vehicle. He speeds off, burning rubber. The broadcast team speculates that it may be Joe who is in Edge’s head. Regardless, they predict sparks will fly at Backlash.
Petey Williams is in his lockeroom alongside Eric Young, a Canadian flag propped against a footlocker nearby. Young says it’s a shame things didn’t go their way tonight, and Williams says he’s pissed. Williams says that he’ll do everything in his power to beat Danielson when the two meet again – and there will be a third match. Young says Williams isn’t the only one that wants to step in the ring again. Young says that he wants another opportunity to face Rob Van Dam. Finlay comes from behind and tells them to stop complaining. Finlay slaps Young on the back and tells them their times will come. Finlay says if there’s one thing he’s learned during his wrestling career, its patience.
Bobby Lashley and Chris Jericho make consecutive entrances, and both men seem pumped up for their contest tonight. They then wait as CM Punk and Colt Cabana make their way to the ring. Samoa Joe is the last entrant, and he angrily steps to the middle of the ring, demanding to begin the contest immediately. Bobby Lashley steps forward, and the crowd roars as the two men stare one another down.
Main Event – 3-2 Tag-Team Match
Chris Jericho & Bobby Lashley vs. Samoa Joe(c) & CM Punk & Colt Cabana
The main event of the evening is an exciting bout. Chris Jericho and Bobby Lashley work very well as a team throughout, and Samoa Joe seems particularly intense – something the broadcast team remarks is deadly considering Joe is usually extremely intense anyway. The contest begins with an interesting sequence between Lashley and Joe. The two men trade shoves, before locking up and struggling for position. They do this several times before taking their battle to the mat. Both men are technically versed, and they bring the fans to their feet on two separate occasions following dynamic technical exchanges. Joe makes the bout a fight when he nails Lashley with an elbow before connecting with a running knee to the face. The two step up the intensity, both nailing some very physical offense. Joe hurls Lashley out of the ring, and then takes him out with a Suicide Dive. The contest settles as Joe begins to tag in Punk and Cabana. The Second City Saints work expertly alongside Joe to physically dissect Lashley. The work on his back and shoulders, and Punk and Cabana impress with devastating double-team maneuvers. After an extended period of isolation, Lashley nails Cabana with a Spear off the ropes from nowhere, buying himself time to tag in Jericho. Jericho cleans house, as momentum shifts back to neutral ground. The contest wears on, and an amazing sequence takes place after Jericho counters a Samoan Drop attempt from Samoa Joe. Jericho lands on his feet, dropkicking Joe through the ropes to the outside. Jericho then leaps atop a turnbuckle, taking out Cabana and Punk with a combination kick. With all three men on the outside in close proximity, Jericho tags in Lashley. Lashley and Jericho charge Joe, Cabana, and Punk, taking them out with a suicide dive combination of their own. The contest ends up back in the ring, and continues on as neither team shows sign of quitting. The contest ends abruptly however, when Samoa Joe lifts Chris Jericho for a Powerbomb attempt. Jericho counters, taking Joe down to apply the Walls of Jericho. Joe struggles to reach the ropes, but instead is able to grab hold of Jericho’s right ankle. Joe uses pure strength to pull Jericho down rolling him up into a Jackknife for the victory.
Winners: Samoa Joe(c) & CM Punk & Colt Cabana (17:52)
Joe reaches his feet and begins celebrating the victory with CM Punk and Colt Cabana. Chris Jericho seems stunned, and the broadcast team says it serves him right. Bobby Lashley consoles Jericho on the outside, as highlights of the amazing match are shown. The broadcast team comments that all three matches tonight were incredible bouts. Joe hoists Cabana upon his shoulders, celebrating the victory, as Lashley and Jericho look on from ringside. Punk poses for the fans atop a turnbuckle, as the show comes to a close.

Re: WWL: The World Wrestling League
World Wrestling League Presents: Smackdown
April 17, 2009
From Honda Center, Anaheim, California
The show begins with a video package highlighting events from the previous week on Smackdown. Christopher Daniels’ victory at WrestleMania over Brock Lesnar is also repackaged. In the ring, Muhammad Hassan and Daivari are already waiting. The fans greet them with “USA” chants, but Hassan does not seem to mind. Daivari is on the microphone and he speaks in Farsi. The fans just boo him more. Hassan then tells everyone to shut up, to which he hears “asshole”. Hassan says California is supposed to be one of the most tolerating places in America, where every lifestyle and every culture is accepted with open arms, but Anaheim is just the same as Alabama. Hassan says that Americans are no different wherever you go. Hassan says that last week, he addressed a very important issue – one that deserves to be addressed again tonight. Hassan says that Sting and Shawn Michaels are examples of discrimination because they stole a WrestleMania moment that potentially could have been his. Hassan says it is not acceptable that two washed up has-beens like Sting and Hassan are allowed to wrestle on the grandest stage of them all. He says that if Sting was an Arab, he’d be nothing. Hassan then says that last week, Sting crossed the line and had to be taken care of. Hassan says that their attack on Sting should serve as a lesson to any who dare disrespect him and Daivari. Suddenly, Sting appears on the entrance ramp, and the fans go crazy.
Hassan says dishonesty is another staple of an American, and Sting obviously is supposed to be retired but he’s still here. Sting says Hassan is the one that needs to shut up, and that the only reason he’s here is that he has a special announcement for Hassan. Sting says that last week, he wanted to retire in peace, but Hassan had to come out and insult him personally – his legacy, and even his faith. Sting says that he’s never crossed paths with Hassan until now, but the two of them are about to settle their differences. Hassan says that Sting’s threats have no weight, because he can’t wrestle due to “retirement”. Sting says that doesn’t matter, and that when Hassan insulted him, the lockeroom took note. Sting tells Hassan that if he wants respect, he should do what everyone else has done and earn it. Sting says that if Hassan would sink into the woodwork, win some matches, and stop talking about discrimination all the time, people may start respecting him. Hassan says that people will respect him regardless, because he has won a lot of matches. Hassan says that like it or not, someday everyone will respect him. Hassan tells Sting to hurry up and get to the point.
Sting says that Hassan probably won’t like what he hears, but that’s alright. Sting says he knows Daivari likes to cause trouble at ringside, so when Muhammad Hassan wrestles Kurt Angle at Backlash, he will be at ringside along with AJ Styles in Angle’s corner. Hassan is livid, and tells Sting he cannot do this because they’d have a numbers advantage. Sting says he’s already discussed the proposal with Shane McMahon and everything is in order. Sting says that he and Styles won’t cost him the match, but they are going to make sure Hassan plays by the rules. Hassan says that Sting has just made a costly mistake. Hassan says Sting talked last week about not being goaded into a fight, but he’s actually just asking Kurt Angle to fight his battles for him. Hassan says Sting is hiding behind Angle, and says that if Sting wants to fight, bring it right now. Sting says that he’s no fool – that he’s not going to engage Hassan and forfeit his nice retirement agreement, but that he knows two men that will fight.
Kurt Angle and AJ Styles emerge from the entrance ramp, and Hassan commands Daivari to get a chair. Angle and Styles stare them down, as Daivari returns with the chair. Hassan says that at Backlash, he will show everyone who the real American hero is. Hassan says that America is about digging your way up from the depths of hell, about making your way up from the bottom, and that’s exactly what he’s going to do. Hassan says the real American hero is not Kurt Angle or AJ Styles or even Sting. Hassan says he is the real American hero. Daivari rants in Farsi, and Kurt Angle then comments that he’ll see Hassan and Daivari later tonight when they wrestle Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin. Hassan and Daivari look on furiously, as Sting, Styles, and Angle exit.
After the commercial break, Chavo Guererro makes his way to the ring. Chavo says that last week, he issued an open challenge to anyone in the back with the guts to step up. Chavo says that he’s going to show the world why he’s the most dominating Cruiserweight of the decade and a five time champion. Chavo requests a challenger, and suddenly KENTA makes his entrance. Chavo seems stunned, but prepares for the match nonetheless. The officials comment that KENTA has been on a role as of late, and the match should be fascinating. As KENTA enters the ring, Chavo nails him with a big elbow, causing KENTA to fall to the ground. The official calls for the bell quickly thereafter.
KENTA vs. Chavo Guererro
Guererro is very physical in the early portion of the contest, taking the fight directly to KENTA. However, Chavo soon comes face to face with the realization that KENTA is capable of replicating his physicality. Chavo at one point gets a taste of several of KENTA’s kicks to the midsection and kidneys before rolling out of the ring for a breather. He reenters the contest, and finds his best strategy is to keep KENTA grounded, forcing him to wrestle from the ground up. Chavo realizes however, that KENTA does this very well also. The two men exchange many technical holds and counter holds. Guererro hits a variety of suplexes, including a hotshot variant. KENTA continues to hit his big kicks and high-flying offense. Chavo nearly wins the match when he rolls through a Crossbody attempt, grabbing the ropes for leverage. The official sees this and chastises Chavo. The match ends shortly thereafter when Chavo sends KENTA off the ropes. KENTA executes a Sunset Flip, rolling away. As Guererro charges, Kenta connects with a Superkick from nowhere for the victory.
Winner: KENTA (7:47)
KENTA rolls from the ring, celebrating his victory with the fans in attendance. Guererro angrily gets to his feet, pleading with the official that he was not pinned for three seconds. However, Chavo’s efforts are fruitless. The broadcast team comments that the Cruiserweight duel was superb.
Backstage, we see Brock Lesnar arrive. He storms in a door and immediately shoves a staff worker out of the way. Todd Grisham attempts to get an interview, but Lesnar rebukes him. Lesnar suddenly begins to search for someone, eventually storming into an office to find Shane McMahon. Lesnar says that he wants to know why the hell Paul London is slated to wrestle him, and McMahon says that it was a match he made himself. McMahon says that Lesnar should take London seriously – he’s a former Cruiserweight Champion and studied under Shawn Michaels. Lesnar says that London is a joke, just like Christopher Daniels. Lesnar says that London doesn’t stand a chance of beating him. JBL appears behind Lesnar and remarks that he’s being very civil. Lesnar tells JBL that unless he wants trouble, he should step aside. JBL allows Lesnar to leave before mocking him from behind.
Todd Grisham was unable to interview Brock Lesnar, but Trish Stratus is standing by with the Golden Eagles, Nathan and Nicholas Rodgers. She asks them about their debut, and the brothers talk about the thrill of being in a Smackdown ring for the first time. They then say they hope to have a very successful career in the league. Nicholas speaks about the Eagles’ rise to the league from the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M – how they’ve stood alongside some of the best up and coming officers in the American military. Nathan then talks to Stratus about their roots, how they watched Kurt Angle win his gold medal growing up. Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin then appear. Benjamin asks, “So, these are the new guys, huh?” and Haas nods. Haas tells the Golden Eagles that if they want to see tag-team wrestling at its finest, watch what the World’s Greatest Tag-Team does to Hassan and Daivari tonight.
After a commercial break, Hassan and Daivari make their way back to the ring. They then watch as Kurt Angle, Charlie Haas, and Shelton Benjamin enter as one unit. Kurt Angle stands by at ringside as the official calls for the bell. Shelton Benjamin and Muhammad Hassan are set to get things underway.
Muhammad Hassan & Daivari vs. Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas w/Kurt Angle
The match is obviously a very heated encounter, as Benjamin and Haas seek to deal Hassan and Daivari a blow on the road to Backlash. Both teams work well, and the match goes back and forth. Haas and Benjamin are able to isolate and concentrate on Daivari throughout the match, but Hassan and his teammate also score some big offense at the World’s Greatest Tag-Team’s expense. On the outside, Kurt Angle cheers his understudies, rallying them throughout the contest. At one point, Hassan rolls to the outside as if he is about to pursue Angle, but he is caught off guard by a big clothesline from Charlie Haas. On another occasion, Benjamin sends Daivari out of the ring. While the referee has his back turned, Angle scores with a big Belly to Belly Suplex. Despite the physical, personal nature of the contest, Haas and Benjamin do an expert job maintaining their technical prowess. They do not allow Hassan and Daivari to goad them into a fight. The match culminates when Benjamin whips Hassan to the corner. Benjamin tries a splash but Hassan gets a boot up. Hassan sends Benjamin off the ropes and attempts a clothesline, but Hassan ducks. Hassan suddenly nails him with a low blow from behind before ducking out of the ring and fleeing with Daivari up the entrance ramp. The official calls for the bell.
Winners: Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas via DQ (8:25)
Hassan and Daivari smile coyly as they retreat up the entrance ramp. Benjamin rolls around in pain, while Haas and Angle angrily look on. The broadcast team is also livid at Hassan and Daivari. They suspect Hassan and Daivari will get what’s coming to them at Backlash when Sting is the special enforcer and A.J. Styles is in Angle’s corner.
A video package plays that highlights the events that have taken place between John Cena and Big Show. Big Show’s horrific fall at WrestleMania is shown, before his match with Cena the next night on RAW. Cena forces Show to tap out due to his back injury, and it appears Show will not appear at the next week’s RAW. Unfortunately for Cena, Big Show does appear, attacking him with a large glass vase while on the entrance ramp. Cena has to be carried from the arena via stretcher and his head is busted open. Several stitches were required to close the large wound on the back of Cena’s head. Due to his injuries, Cena will now appear on next week’s RAW, while Big Show will wrestle Val Venis.
After a commercial break, Christopher Daniels is backstage. He runs into Rey Mysterio, and Rey greets him. Rey asks Daniels how it feels to be a world champion, and Daniels says it feels really good. Rey says he can relate. Rey says maybe someday, he’ll have the privilege of challenging Daniels for the title. Daniels says it’d be a match to remember. Daniels says that first, he has to deal with Brock Lesnar at Backlash. Daniels looks to see if anyone is looking and then confides in Rey that he knows beating Lesnar again will be a challenge. Rey sits Daniels down and says the cynics always say the same things. Rey says that people always told him he was too small to be a credible heavyweight champion, but Rey fought with passion – the same passion Daniels has. Rey says he saw Daniels win the title, and he’s seen Daniels come up from the very bottom to the top of the wrestling business. Rey says Daniels just needs to focus, because he has all the ability in the world. Rey says Brock is beatable, and Daniels can do it at Backlash. Daniels says Rey is right, and thanks him. Daniels asks Rey about wrestling AJ tonight, and Rey says he’s excited. Rey says he talked to AJ earlier in the day, and they both agreed it would be an amazing match. Rey says he remembers some great matches with AJ and alongside AJ years ago when Styles was competing in the cruiserweight division. Daniels comments that those were the good days. Rey says he and AJ’s match is going to be a throwback to those days, and says it should be fantastic. Rey wishes Daniels good luck against Christian before making his departure.
Paul London makes his way to the ring before Brock Lesnar follows suit. London offers a handshake before the match, but Lesnar declines. Lesnar then heads to the outside of the ring and gets on the microphone. He says that he doesn’t mean to disrespect London, but he’s not in the mood to shake hands with anyone. Lesnar says that his championship is around the waste of Christopher Daniels, and tonight is about making a statement. Lesnar says that after the match, they can shake hands, but for now, he has a statement to make. Lesnar rolls back in the ring and the match starts.
Paul London vs. Brock Lesnar
London wrestles an intelligent match in the beginning, evasively staying away from Lesnar. He manages to hang in there in the early going, but Lesnar is absolutely on fire about not being world champion. Lesnar hits a barrage of physical offense, several big suplexes, and a Guerilla Press Slam to the outside that give him the decisive advantage. He then works on London’s arm, physically dissecting the smaller man. Lesnar hits more big offense, before ramming his knee directly into London’s forearm. London writhes in pain, rolling from the ring. Lesnar lifts him on the outside, delivering a thunderous F5 into the ring post. Lesnar rolls London back into the ring, quickly covering for the victory.
Winner: Brock Lesnar (5:03)
Lesnar stands over a fallen London and scowls at him. As London slowly rises after a long time on the ground, Lesnar extends a hand. London stares at him for a period of time before shaking his head and rolling outside of the ring. London can barely stand as he clutches his arm on the way up the entrance ramp. Lesnar seems angry London would not shake his hand. The broadcast team says that Lesnar is being an ass about Daniels beating him at WrestleMania. A commercial break takes place.
After the break, Todd Grisham is standing by with Christian Cage. Grisham reminds everyone that after defeating Rey Mysterio last week on Smackdown, Cage now has an opportunity to wrestle the world champion tonight. Grisham asks Cage how he feels about the chance, and Cage says that he and Daniels are cut from the same mold. He says that they both began their careers in tag-team wrestling, and since then both of them have done remarkably well. Cage says that Daniels beat him to a world title, but his time will come. Cage says that he’s fully capable of beating anybody, and all the peeps in the world know it. Cage says that tonight, Captain Charisma and the Fallen Angel are going to tear the house down, and only one will walk out the victor.
Backstage, Montel Vontavious Porter is seen walking around with his United States Championship, dressed in a very nice suit. MVP runs into a crowd of girls who blush at the site of him. They begin to giggle and talk to him and MVP turns his focus to the girls as opposed to the camera. The broadcast team speculates they’ll keep the United States Champion busy tonight.
Rey Mysterio makes his way to the ring, and Styles follows. Rival chants begin to erupt from the crowd, as the official rings the bell and the match begins. The broadcast team speculates this match should be an amazing encounter.
Rey Mysterio vs. A.J. Styles
Rey and Styles tear down the house with a lightning paced, action-packed contest that sees both men put their bodies on the line. AJ and Rey wrestle in the ring, on the outside, on the mat, and in the sky. They grapple, exchange hold and counter-hold, engage in midair acrobatics, and employ some very physical smashmouth offense. They truly hold nothing back against one another, and the fans love every second. Several amazing moments occur throughout the contest. After a long, tiring match. Rey Mysterio attempts a 619, but Styles ducks the kick before nearly hitting Rey with the Styles Clash. Mysterio avoids the move by grasping the ropes. Mysterio nails several big kicks to the midsection and kidneys, but Styles focuses on technically working Rey’s legs to prevent the kicks. Rey is able to keep his vertical base throughout the match, despite Styles’ efforts. Styles us busted open when he kisses the steel ring post after Rey ducks an attempted splash. An amazing moment occurs when Rey sets Styles up on the Spanish broadcast table. Rey hurls himself at Styles with a Frogsplash attempt, but Styles rolls from the table. Rey crashes through it, and the official counts to nine before opting to allow the match to continue. Styles and Mysterio continue to battle it out as their contest heads back into the ring. Another incredible moment takes place after Styles gives Mysterio a Back Body Drop to the outside. Styles then hurls himself at Mysterio, who staggers backwards. Both men fall over the guard rail and into the stands, where they throw a furious series of kicks. The match finally culminates when a dazed Rey Mysterio drops Styles with a drop-toe-hold before executing a big 619 using the steel ring post in the corner. Mysterio stands atop a turnbuckle, launching himself at Styles. Styles surprisingly catches Mysterio, pulling the trigger on the Styles Clash and claiming victory out of nowhere.
Winner: A.J. Styles (14:31)
After the long contest, Styles slowly reaches his feet. Mysterio rolls from the ring. As the official raises Styles’ hand in victory, Daivari blind sides the Phenomenal One from behind. Daivari rants in Farsi as he stomps away at Styles. Mysterio rolls back in the ring, and Daivari flees. Mysterio and Daivari exchange words as an angry Styles reaches his feet. The broadcast team speculates that Daivari is a coward and that Styles will reinforce Angle at Backlash. A commercial break takes place.
Back from the break, the broadcast team announces that Shane McMahon has revealed the Main Events for Smackdown next week. Two days before Backlash takes place, AJ Styles and Rey Mysterio will team to wrestle Muhammad Hassan and Daivari. Also, the first appearance of The Undertaker since WrestleMania will occur when he joins forces with United States Champion Montel Vontavious Porter to take on tag-team champs John “Bradshaw” Layfield and Tomko in a non-title bout.
Backstage, JBL is furious. He tells Tomko that Brock was right about Shane McMahon – he really is crazy. JBL asks Tomko if he understands what Taker did to Jericho at WrestleMania. JBL says that The Undertaker takes something away from those he competes against and mentally dissects. JBL says that Tomko needs to take The Deadman seriously if he wants to win next week. Tomko says that he is not worried, that JBL seems just fine and he’s been in the ring with Taker before. JBL says that’s a different situation, that Jericho is not a Wrestling God like him. Tomko chuckles and JBL tells him to seriously be careful when they wrestle Taker next week.
Christian Cage makes his way to the ring and the fans cheer for sporting an Anaheim Angels jacket. Cage gives it to a fan before stepping into the ring to await his challenger. The fans go ballistic as the World Heavyweight Champion makes his way to the ring for action. The broadcast team says that it’ll be tough to beat Styles and Mysterio, but this match should be worthwhile as well.
Christopher Daniels(c) vs. Christian Cage
The match is slow in the early stages, as both wrestlers attempt to figure out the other. Daniels technically outduels Christian on some occasions early on, but for the most part the two men are fairly even. The pace of the match picks up when Cage begins to unleash his offense. Cage picks up many near falls throughout the match, but is never able to hit a decisive move to swing the contest in his favor for good. Daniels pulls out several counters, and scores with many near falls of his own. The contest stays in the ring, never venturing outside, as both wrestlers attempt to outduel the other. At one point, Christian attempts his Unprettier, only to have Daniels counter by pivoting out and kneeing him in the back. Cage also attempts to end the match with a Canadian Frog Splash. Cage attempts the move, but Daniels gets a knee up. The match culminates shortly thereafter. Daniels hits Cage with Angel’s Wings for the hard fought victory.
Winner: Christopher Daniels(c) (9:10)
After the match, both men shake hands and Cage celebrates with Daniels for the fans in Anaheim. The fans cheer for both men, as a video package plays highlighting events from RAW, Impact, and Smackdown on the road to Backlash. Daniels and Cage continue to celebrate, as the show comes to a close.
