Re: Melvisboy's WWE: The Comeback
Monday Night Raw
Kansas Coliseum, Wichita, Kansas
21st December 2009
The Raw entrance video plays, and the camera soon cuts to the arena, where massive fireworks explode across the stage. The camera sweeps across the Wichita crowd, who are cheering mildly (must be a slow start for them this evening), before we cut to ringside, where we see the cheery sight of a smiling Michael Cole and Jerry ‘the King’ Lawler. Cole is wearing a suit, King is more casually dressed, wearing a t-shirt of his own design. King’s crown sits on the desk.
Cole: Good evening, and welcome to Monday Night Raw! We are live in the Kansas Coliseum in beautiful Wichita, Kansas – with me as always, WWE Hall of Famer, Jerry ‘the King’ Lawler. Good evening, King.
King: A pleasure as always, Michael.
Cole: Well, we are six days away from that Pepsi Center, in Denver, Colorado, where WWE and Monday Night Raw will present Armageddon, which will feature seven blockbuster matches. We’ll be going through those later, King.
King: We sure will, Michael! Four different titles will be on the line, two No Disqualification matches, and a Battle Royal! Every match means something to every man on the Raw roster!
Cole: It will be an amazing event, for sure. You can buy it on pay-per-view, of course – we’ll be broadcasting in over 60 countries, in all 50 states of the United States of America. You can be sure, that the world will be watching.
Pyrotechnics fire off from the stage, and the music begins...
C’MON! YA KNOW I GOTCHA! YEAH! ONE, BREAK THE WALLS... DOOOOWN!
The crowd boos intensely as Chris Jericho wanders out, smirking. The bell rings.
Roberts: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Manhasset, New York, weighing in at 231 pounds... he is one half of the Unified Tag Team Champions... Chris Jericho!
Jericho starts to walk down the ramp, holding his titles over his shoulders, and looking in disgust at the fans at ringside.
Cole: Well, we don’t know how long he’ll still be holding those Unified Tag Team Championships, but as of right now, he is one half of the Champions. Chris Jericho, ladies and gentlemen.
King: Jericho’s on the worst form of his life, Michael. He’s been losing week after week on Raw, and he lost on Friday, too – a loss against the World’s Strongest Man here would effectively ruin all chances he had of retaining his titles on Sunday, I think.
Jericho gets into the ring, tosses his titles to ringside, and awaits his opponent.
The music of Mark Henry starts up, and the World’s Strongest Man storms out, wearing his contagious smile, and accompanied by his partner MVP.
Roberts: And his opponent! Accompanied by Montel Vontavious Porter... from Silsbee, Texas, weighing in at 418 pounds... the World’s Strongest Man... Mark Henry!
The crowd cheers for Henry, who slaps the hands of the fans at ringside, before getting in the ring, and facing up to the disapproving Jericho.
Cole: The World’s Strongest Man can capture the Tag Team Titles this Sunday, should he and MVP have a good night...
King: I don’t think it’s about having a good night, Michael. It’s about the performance. And the talent. Which Mark Henry and MVP sure have, so I’d say they have a good chance.
Henry's music subsides. The referee checks both men, and kicks this one off.
Chris Jericho vs Mark Henry
Henry pleased the crowd early with some big power moves to Jericho, but Jericho eventually evened the score by clipping Henry’s left knee, and brutally targeting it from then on. This ranged from basic stomps, to slamming the knee against the steel ring post, an action which didn’t exactly endeavour Jericho to the referee. As we join as the match is six minutes in, Jericho has Henry grounded, and in a headlock. Henry fights his way up, with the fans’ support, and puts his elbow to Jericho’s gut... and breaks the hold! ...but Jericho hammers his boot into the back of Henry’s knee, and the World’s Strongest Man falls back to his knees again! The crowd boos Jericho’s tactics, but naturally, he doesn’t care. Jericho bounces off the ropes... and looks to put his boot to Henry’s face, but the World’s Strongest Man catches Jericho’s boot, and flings him to the side! Jericho rolls as he hits the mat, a bit surprised, but charges straight back at Henry – who flattens him with a Shoulder Block! Jericho runs into a metaphorical brick wall, and goes down, stunned. Henry picks him up from the mat, and lifts him up into an Oklahoma position... the World’s Strongest Man’s legs are wobbly, and he can’t hold Jericho for long... but he manages to drive him to the mat with a Running Powerslam! Henry covers... 1-2- but Jericho powers out.
Henry gets up, flexing out his knee as he does – Jericho’s done a real good job on it, and it’s looking pretty wobbly. Lawler comments at ringside on Jericho’s ring strategy, as if Jericho needs telling. Jericho gets up, immediately kicking Henry in the knee as he does, causing the World’s Strongest Man to reel back, before feeding the big man a leg... and striking with a nasty Enzuigiri to the head! Henry tumbles to the mat on his back, and Jericho heads for the ropes, springboarding... Lionsault connects! Jericho yells out in adrenaline, gaining some heavy boos, and covers... 1-2—but Henry powers out with authority! The big man isn’t done yet! The crowd egg Henry on, and as Jericho gets up, the big guy lays him out with the Big Boot! Henry drops to a cover... 1-2—kickout from Jericho! Henry stands, wincing as he puts weight on his knee... Jericho gets up, and Henry whips him to the turnbuckle... but Jericho clambers up it, and is on the top rope! Jericho soars off, looking for a quick Crossbody... but he gets caught in prime position by Mark Henry! The crowd roars with excitement... but Henry’s knee gives way, and the big man collapses, dropping Jericho! Henry rests on one knee, pained, and Jericho selfishly takes advantage, putting his boot to Henry’s face! Jericho covers... AND PUTS HIS LEGS ON THE ROPES FOR EXTRA LEVERAGE... 1-2-3! Jericho cheats to win, the ref never saw it!
Winner: Chris Jericho
Match Time: 8:33
Jericho has his hand raised in tainted victory, and the crowd boos profusely. Jericho smirks, looking down at Henry with a mocking look. He leaves the ring, content that his work is done. MVP slides into the ring to check on Henry, whose knee is in a bad way.
Cole: Chris Jericho cheats to win, but it’s worth pointing out – that’s his first victory on Raw for a while.
King: Jericho was smart to keep targeting the knee... shame he had to taint such a classic match.
A graphic appears, showing Fixer’s ‘Tell No One’ EP. The song itself plays.
Cole: Well, those two will be part of the WWE Unified Tag Team Championship match this Sunday at Armageddon, and we’d like to thank Fixer for supplying us with our excellent theme song for the event, ‘Tell No One.’
King: It’s quite catchy, Michael.
Cole: Sure is, King. Well, that match wasn’t all the action we have in store for tonight, let’s not forget, we have a blockbuster Main Event tonight – John Cena teams with Kofi Kingston and DX to take on Jack Swagger, Randy Orton, and Legacy. We’ll see you after the break.
Raw goes to a break.
As Raw returns, we are backstage. Chris Masters is leaning up against a wall, in street clothes, while Maryse is standing nearby, in her ring gear, but wearing a coat over the top. Both get fairly heavy boos. Maryse is clearly trying to ignore Masters, while the Masterpiece is clearly trying to get her attention.
Masters: Hey, look, I know we got off on the wrong foot the other week, but hey... I’m the Masterpiece! Face it, you can’t do better.
Maryse turns to face him, unimpressed.
Masters: And I showed last week, that I don’t let little punks get the better of me. So why don’t you gimme a try, huh? I’m a lot better than any of the losers you’ll find around here...
Maryse raises an eyebrow.
Maryse: And ‘ave I not told you? Two weeks ago, I zought I said you were pazetic, no? So, maybe you should take a hint, no? Because I am, ze sexiest of ze sexy... you cannot keep up with moi...
Maryse wanders off slowly, leaving Masters to curse by himself. From nowhere comes Evan Bourne, who is raging. Masters swears under his breath – after being rejected again, he obviously doesn’t feel like paying for his actions.
Bourne: I knew I’d find you somewhere, Masters. What, you think cause I’m smaller than you, I won’t damn hunt you down?
Masters looks at the fuming Bourne with a nonchalant look. Bourne continues.
Bourne: Last week, you cost me my United States Championship opportunity in front of my hometown fans, and my friends and family in St. Louis. What makes you think you have that right, huh?
Masters continues to look like he doesn’t care.
Bourne: So what. You were jealous I knocked your lights out two weeks ago. Embarrassed, huh? I pinned you. Not once.
Bourne holds up one finger.
Bourne: But twice.
Bourne flicks up a second finger.
Bourne: I made you look like a fool, huh? So you thought you’d repay the favour. Well, lemme tell ya something, Masters. I never rest on my laurels. I’m a fighter. I don’t take crap from guys like you, who think they’re better than me, cause they’re bigger.
Bourne is in Masters’ face as much as possible, but the Masterpiece is taller, and he’s looking in a different direction, not caring.
Bourne: Still not paying attention to me, then. I guess you’re just a coward. Only attack people from behind.
Masters continues to ignore him.
Bourne: What, you won’t face up to me? What’s wrong, Masters? Ain’t got the guts?
Masters looks at him. Bourne is stony-faced.
Bourne: Listen, Masters. You got yourself into this when you cost me my match. I want you, one-on-one, tonight. To settle this.
Bourne: Don’t you run from me, Masters. I’ve said it already. I’m not gonna put up with you messin’ me around, got it? So whaddya say, huh? You gonna prove to me you had the guts to get involved in the first place?
Masters blinks and thinks for a moment.
Masters: Bourne... I wasn’t jealous of you. Your wins over me were flukes.
Boos follow. Bourne smirks.
Masters: I can beat you, any day of the week. Like Armageddon. I’ll be throwing you over the top rope on my way to winning myself a United States Title shot.
Bourne sees the irony.
Masters: So yeah. I’ll take you on.
The crowd cheers, and Bourne grins.
Masters: Good luck getting to Armageddon, chump.
Masters walks away, deliberately barging through Bourne as he leaves. Bourne watches him leave with fire in his eyes. The camera cuts to the arena, where a Scottish tune starts up, and Robbie McAllister starts wandering down the ramp, to effectively, no reaction. The bell chimes.
Roberts: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Oban, Scotland, weighing in at 238 pounds... Robbie McAllister.
Cole: Well, this match should be a good one. Jamie Noble takes to the ring for the first time since he beat Sheamus in one of the biggest upsets in recent history, three weeks ago.
King: I’m sure Jamie’s been training hard, but some extra ring action never hurt anybody, Michael.
Get in the ring, Robbie. No-one cares about you.
The music of the Pit Bull hits, and the Kansas Coliseum wakes up! The entire arena gets to its feet, and is roaring for Jamie Noble, who comes out from behind the curtain, licking his chops like the Pit Bull you all know he really is. He fiddles with his right armband for a moment, then lets out an inhumane growl to the heavens, before striding down the ramp with a new-found confidence – his muscles have become much more defined, and the guy looks like a much more confident performer than ever before. There’s no doubting, this is a new Jamie Noble. The back of his shorts has ‘the Pit Bull’ on it.
Roberts: And his opponent! From Hanover, West Virginia, weighing in at 202 pounds... the Pit Bull... Jamie Noble!
The pop is immense for Noble as he heads for the ring! McAllister looks like he’s had an accident.
Cole: I think the roof just came off this arena! Jamie Noble, Raw’s resident underdog, is in the building, and I’ve never seen him look so good, and so ready to go!
King: It’s called confidence, Michael! Noble is a totally revitalised man! The crowd are 100% behind him, there’s no doubt that every single member of the WWE Universe are supporting him whole-heartedly in this one, and they’ll be supporting him whole-heartedly on Sunday in that No Holds Barred match.
Noble slides under the bottom rope, baring his teeth at McAllister, before heading to the turnbuckle, and raising both arms – getting a huge pop from the crowd! Insane! Noble hops down, heads for the middle of the ring, licks his lips, and shakes his head like a rabid dog... before letting out a massive roar of pure adrenaline at the ceiling! Noble is totally up for this one! The referee checks with both men, and kicks things off!
Robbie McAllister vs Jamie Noble
Obviously, at the start, Noble went totally crazy on McAllister, and hit a bunch of high-octane moves – he hit some smooth Dropkicks, a couple of cracking Enzuigiris, and a few high Knee Strikes to boot. McAllister took control about a minute ago with a Big Boot, and as we join the match at around four and a half minutes, McAllister has Noble in a sort of Vice Grip, with Noble seated, and the Scotsman standing. Noble starts garnering support, clapping his hands, and makes it to his feet, putting a couple of elbows to the gut of McAllister... before grabbing his arm, and flinging the Scotsman to the mat with an Arm Drag! Noble fires a Dropkick to the back of McAllister’s head to keep him down, then heads up top... McAllister is still down... so Noble soars off, and lands a stunning Diving Leg Drop! Noble hooks a leg... 1-2—but McAllister kicks out! The crowd groans, but the Pit Bull remains optimistic, rising quickly, ready to stay on offence – McAllister gets up, and Noble feeds him a leg before... CRACK! ENZUIGIRI! McAllister falls like a sack of potatoes, rolling from the ring, and holding his head.
The Scotsman tries to recuperate on the outside... but the Pit Bull is having none of it! McAllister looks up... and gets flattened by Noble, who crashes into him with a stunning Diving Crossbody! Noble gets up from the floor, and roars with adrenaline, eliciting a giant roar from the crowd! Noble steps up on to the barricade, the referee’s count to three, and lets out another growl... before landing an Elbow Drop to McAllister from the barricade! Somebody needs to tell Noble to wait for Sunday before we get to the spotfests, please! Noble rolls back into the ring, grinning like a madman, and McAllister joins him, exhausted, at the count of eight from the referee – McAllister catches Noble with a right hand, but the Pit Bull growls... and boots McAllister in the gut, drilling the Oban native with a stunning DDT! The crowd roars, but Noble isn’t done yet... McAllister gets to his knees... AND NOBLE BENDS HIM BACKWARDS INTO THE DRAGON SLEEPER! The crowd goes nuts, and Michael Cole screams ‘VINTAGE NOBLE!’ over and over... McAllister is going absolutely crazy with the pain! There’s no way in hell McAllister can hold on much longer, and Noble intensifies the hold, bending McAllister further backwards... AND MCALLISTER TAPS! McAllister taps to the Dragon Sleeper!
Winner: Jamie Noble
Match Time: 6:24
The Pit Bull has his arm raised by the referee – the reaction for Noble is stunning! Noble heads for the corner, hopping up on to the turnbuckle, and raises his arms, playing to the crowd.
Cole: Jamie Noble has beaten Robbie McAllister in convincing fashion here tonight, and if that doesn’t give him a confidence boost going into Armageddon on Sunday, nothing will!
King: Did you see that Dragon Sleeper, Michael? How are you supposed to get out of that?!
Noble hops off the turnbuckle, smiling, but the crowd are booing suddenly – BECAUSE SHEAMUS IS THERE, AND HE FLATTENS NOBLE WITH THE BICYCLE KICK! The whole arena boos the hell out of the Celtic Warrior, who stands above Noble, beating his chest! The Celtic Warrior kneels by Noble’s fallen body, a sick smile on his face.
Cole: Oh god, that was just unnecessary. Sheamus just attacked Jamie Noble!
King: Well, that sure sent a message to the Pit Bull ahead of their Armageddon match, but boy, was that an underhanded thing to do.
Sheamus rolls from the ring, grabs a mic from ringside, then gets back in. He drops to his knees by Noble, bending down a little further to talk to Noble’s unconscious face.
Sheamus: I told ya, Noble! I told ya, ya can’t run from me... this Sunday, I will put the dog down.
Sheamus: No rules, no stoppages... No Holds Barred. Noble? I’m gonna put ya through hell.
The boos continue. Sheamus stands.
Sheamus: And then... the pathetic career... of Jamie Noble... will be over.
Sheamus drops the mic on to Noble, provoking a ton of boos to fall on the Celtic Warrior. Raw goes to a break.
As Raw returns, we are in Shane McMahon’s office, where the Raw General Manager is sat at his desk. Shane O’Mac gets a little pop from some fans in the back of the arena – inevitably, the door flies open, and Shane looks up... to see Chavo Guerrero standing in front of him.
McMahon: Y’know, Chavo, I’ve almost missed you crashing into my office every week.
Chavo ignores the comment.
Guerrero: Esse, did you see that Triple Threat match last week, huh? Carlito totally screwed me – of course I can’t stop him if he attacks me from behind! I should be gettin’ that United States Title shot, not him. I’m an honourable superstar – I do stuff right, esse.
Shane rolls his eyes.
McMahon: Chavo, you know that’s not true. And frankly, I don’t plan on giving you Carlito’s title shot.
The crowd cheers and Chavo’s expression flares up.
McMahon: But I’ll tell you what. You wanna go at it with Carlito, be my guest.
Chavo opens his mouth to protest, but Shane quickly whips a pen out and scribbles on a blank match card.
McMahon: Done. You, versus Carlito, tonight. Happy... esse?
Guerrero: Shane, let me guarantee ya something. After I beat Carlito tonight, it’s off to Armageddon. That Battle Royal was made for me... esse. So, whether you like it or not, I’ll be challenging for that United States Title. Believe it, homes.
Chavo turns around and leaves the office hurriedly. The camera moves back to Shane, who simply shakes his head, and goes back to his work.
The camera cuts back to the arena, where the music of Melina hits, and the crowd pops for the Divas Champion as she struts out in street clothes, wandering down the ramp to join Cole and King on commentary.
Cole: Well, Melina, we’re very happy to have you here with us, how are you?
Melina: I’m very well, thanks, Michael. Pleasure to be here to watch this match with you guys.
The bell rings.
Roberts: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
Maryse’s music hits, and the Sultry Diva strides out majestically, dressed in ring gear, along with her usual cape. The crowd boos.
Roberts: Introducing first... from Montreal, Quebec, Canada... Maryse!
Cole: In only six days’ time, Maryse steps into the ring with Melina here, with the latter’s Divas Championship on the line.
King: It’s sure to be a classic, Michael!
Melina stays silent as Maryse struts down the ramp, smirking, before swinging up on to the apron, winking at the camera, and getting into the ring. She whips her cape off, and tosses it to ringside. The music of Gail Kim starts up soon after, and the crowd cheers a little for Kim, who charges out on to the stage, grinning.
Roberts: And her opponent! From Toronto, Ontario, Canada... Gail Kim!
Kim starts to jog down the ramp, slapping the hands of the fans at ringside.
Cole: Well, we all know just how talented Gail Kim is, and if anyone can stop Maryse right now, you have to think Gail Kim is up there.
King: I’d say so, Michael. Gail is one of the finest Diva talents the WWE has! She’ll give Maryse a run for her money.
Melina: Well, Gail’s one of my best friends. I bet she can get the job done tonight.
Kim rolls underneath the bottom rope and stands to face the Sultry Diva. The referee waits a moment for Justin Roberts to exit the ring, then calls for the bell.
Maryse vs Gail Kim
We’re five minutes in. Maryse has just hit a Backbreaker to Gail Kim, and obtained only a 2 count. Maryse drops an elbow to the heart of Kim, and covers again... 1-2- but Kim kicks out again. Both women rise, and Maryse whips Kim to the turnbuckle, before charging... but Gail puts up both boots, and Maryse collides face-first into them! Gail Kim hops up to the second rope, springs off... and fells Maryse with a stunning Lou Thesz Press! Kim rolls, and sweeps out on to the apron, waiting for the Sultry Diva to join her at a vertical base – Maryse, dazed, struggles to her feet... and Gail springboards – before hitting Maryse with a Springboard Arm Drag! The crowd cheers for the athletic move, and Kim scales the turnbuckle quickly, launching off with a beautiful Moonsault to Maryse! Kim covers... 1-2—BUT MARYSE KICKS OUT! Gail Kim appeals to the referee for a slow count, a shout the referee turns down... and Maryse is standing behind her! Gail Kim turns around... and Maryse grabs her, before laying her out with her patented Forward Russian Legsweep! The crowd groans with the impact, and Maryse stands, preparing for her finisher... Kim struggles back to her feet, unaware of where she is... and Maryse grabs her, sweeps her hair back... and connects with the French Kiss! The crowd boos, and Maryse rolls the totally dizzy Kim into a cover, not bothering to hook the legs... it’s academic... 1-2-3!
Match Time: 6:38
Maryse stands, quiet confidence across her face. Her arm shoots into the air, and she looks to the announce table, where Melina throws off her headset. Maryse smirks, and Melina charges into the ring, immediately facing up to her Armageddon opponent. The two exchange trash talk, and Maryse points to Kim on the mat, who is wincing from the French Kiss, still. Melina raises the Divas Title, but Maryse keeps her eyes locked on those of the Champion. Raw goes to a break.
- Rey Mysterio tells Chris Jericho that someday, the Undertaker will return, and take his revenge on the man formerly known as Y2J...
- Teddy Long says it’ll be Big Show and Rey Mysterio vs Batista and Chris Jericho in the Main Event...
- Mysterio hits the 619 to Jericho, and Show follows up with the Knockout Punch to win the match...
- The Big Show is to announce the stipulation of the Royal Rumble, World Heavyweight Title match next week on SmackDown...
The bell chimes, and the classical music of the Masterpiece starts up – the crowd boos, and on the stage, Chris Masters is kneeling, a sly smirk noticeable on his face, even with his head bent down.
Roberts: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Los Angeles, California, weighing in at 275 pounds... the Masterpiece, Chris Masters!
Masters leaps to his feet, causing fireworks to lightly spray behind him. The Masterpiece then struts down the ramp confidently, ignoring the boos from the fans at ringside.
Cole: The Masterpiece is here, and he’ll be hoping he can back up his words with a win against Evan Bourne, something that has evaded him for many weeks now.
King: Whoever wins here goes into that Battle Royal at Armageddon with one hell of a lot of momentum, Michael, and that could be the difference!
Masters gets into the ring, and Bourne’s music lights up the speakers – the crowd roars, and Bourne charges out on to the stage, smiling. The crowd chants Bourne’s name, and the high flyer hops a little, before sprinting down the ramp, towards the ring.
Roberts: And his opponent! From St. Louis, Missouri, weighing in at 183 pounds... Evan Bourne!
Cole: This young man has one of the most electrifying offences this business has ever seen, and I have a feeling we’re about to have another showing of it!
King: Last week, Chris Masters cost Evan Bourne a United States Title shot! This week, Bourne’s out for revenge, and he’s gonna leave it all in the ring!
Bourne slides into the ring, immediately getting straight into Masters’ face – the referee quickly separates them, before calling for the bell!
Evan Bourne vs Chris Masters
Masters has hit a couple of big moves over the course of this match, but so has Bourne, if I’m honest. As we join the action at about seven minutes, Masters is punching Bourne in the corner – the referee forces the Masterpiece away, and Bourne leaves the corner tentatively... Big Boot from Masters! Bourne falls, and the Masterpiece covers... 1-2—but Bourne steals a shoulder from the mat! Masters grunts in frustration as he gets up, and drops a knee to the gut of Bourne, before covering again... 1-2—kickout from Bourne again! The Masterpiece gets up again, wandering around the ring a little, and runs his hands over his head. He heads over to the turnbuckle... and starts trying to take the cover off! The crowd roars for the referee to stop him, and the man in the middle looks up from checking on Bourne, rushing across the ring to stop Masters. Bourne uses the time to get up, but Masters rushes over... and low blows Bourne while the referee isn’t looking! Bourne crumples in pain, and Masters picks him up from the mat, sticking Bourne’s head between his legs... and flinging him up into the air... MASSIVE POWERBOMB FROM CHRIS MASTERS! Evan Bourne crumples like paper as he hits the mat, and Masters gets right up in Bourne’s face, roaring obscenities! Masters shoots the half... 1-2—BUT EVAN BOURNE’S LEG SHOOTS OUT, AND LANDS ON THE BOTTOM ROPE!
The crowd goes insane, and Masters roars to the heavens! The Masterpiece grabs Bourne by the hair, and yanks him to his feet... and tries to lock in the Masterlock! Masters hooks one arm... but Bourne won’t let him have the other! Bourne hammers his elbow to the gut of Masters, spins out... and rocks Masters with a nasty Knee Strike to the face! Masters reels back, and Bourne charges forward... flinging himself through the air, and bringing Masters down to earth with a stunning Hurricanrana! The crowd roars, and Bourne screams for Masters to rise... he does... and Bourne hammers him with his patented Roundhouse Kick to the head, knocking Masters’ lights out! ‘Shades of two weeks ago!’ screams Michael Cole, and Masters collapses, totally unconscious! Bourne lets out a massive war cry, and heads for the top turnbuckle... he gets there, and lets out another exclamation to the crowd before... HE SOARS OFF, AND CONNECTS WITH THE SHOOTING – STAR – PRESS! The crowd roars, and Bourne makes the academic cover... 1-2-3! Bourne has won!
Winner: Evan Bourne
Match Time: 9:04
Bourne’s arm goes up in the air, held by the referee, and the high-flyer looks down at Masters with a look of contempt, with a tinge of relief.
Cole: And there you have it! Evan Bourne is your winner, and he will go into Armageddon with a pretty big smile on his face!
King: No doubt about it, Michael! Evan has well and truly silenced Chris Masters – and did you see that kick? That was insane, Michael!
Cole: I have to agree with you there, King.
The camera cuts backstage, where we see Todd Grisham.
Grisham: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time... the WWE Champion, John Cena!
The crowd roars as the camera zooms out, showing a smiling John Cena. The Champ is dressed in his usual orange attire, complete with hat.
Grisham: John, it’s only six days away. On Sunday, you defend your WWE Title against the All-American American, Jack Swagger. How are you feeling, six days away from a historic event?
Cena smiles a little.
Cena: Todd, the way I see it, Raw’s been on a bit of a journey this past five weeks. We’ve seen Shane McMahon come back as GM... we’ve seen guys get back on their feet... and we’ve seen Jack Swagger climb the ladder, and become the new No. 1 Contender to my WWE Championship.
Cena: This Sunday, is Armageddon. Jack and I, one-on-one, with the biggest prize in the business on the line. The world, watching us go at it. 25,000 people in attendance in Denver. Jack Swagger will finally move from boy... to man. In front of all those people, he’s gonna come of age...
Cena: All these weeks, he’s been bragging, boasting, and talking.
Cena: But Jack, the talking is nearly over. This is the last Raw before Armageddon. And Jack? Jack... you just keep telling yourself you’re the best of the best, the ultimate talent on Raw... because on Sunday, it’ll make the lesson you learn all the greater.
Cheers goes up for Cena.
Cena: On Sunday, Jack, you officially make the step up to the big leagues! We play for keeps, son! But unfortunately for you, Jack... I have to put you in your place. ‘Cause as much as you might want to show the world that you’re the best there is...
Cena: That title belongs to me. And this title does, too.
Cena hits the title with his hand, waves his hand in front of his face, and leaves. Raw goes to a break.
As Raw returns, the bell rings.
I SPIT IN DE FACE, OF PEOPLE WHO DON’T WANT TO BE COOL...
The crowd cheers for Carlito, who wanders out slowly, in his ring gear, and holding an apple in his hand. He fluffs his afro a bit, then makes his way down the ramp.
Roberts: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from the Caribbean, weighing in at 220 pounds... Carlito!
Cole: Well, this Sunday, Carlito will take on the man who he’s been feuding with since his return to WWE programming, the United States Champion, the Miz.
King: The Miz versus Carlito! With the title on the line! I can’t wait for this Sunday, Michael!
Another small cheer goes up for Carlito, who rolls underneath the bottom rope, lightly tosses the apple to ringside, and crouches in the corner to wait for his opponent.
The crowd boos as Chavo Guerrero makes his way out on to the ramp, and raises his arms in his usual cocky fashion.
Roberts: And his opponent! From El Paso, Texas, weighing in at 215 pounds... Chavo Guerrero!
Cole: The Mexican Warrior took the pinfall last week in that pivotal Triple Threat match, and he obviously wants to prove that he could’ve won it... had he not... lost it.
King: I bet we’re about to see a great match, Michael! These two are both tremendous ring talents – can we get started already?
Chavo steps on to the apron, and sweeps into the ring over the middle rope. He tosses his poncho and bandana to ringside, then wanders around the ring, twisting his wrists in anticipation.
Carlito vs Chavo Guerrero
After seven minutes, we join the action, with Chavo choking Carlito on the middle rope. The referee tells the Mexican Warrior to get away, and he does, reluctantly. Carlito removes his neck from the rope, gasping, and gets back up, facing Guerrero. The Mexican Warrior charges... but Carlito pulls down the top rope, and Chavo goes flying over the top! Chavo clatters to the floor outside, pained, and the crowd cheers – Chavo struggles up, wincing... AND CARLITO SPRINGBOARDS, MOWING HIM DOWN WITH A SPRINGBOARD CROSSBODY! The crowd roars, and Carlito yells out to them, pumped up! Chavo gets up slowly, stunned, and holding his back – and Carlito lashes out with a nice Dropkick, sending Chavo into the plastic of the announce table! The crowd groans as the Mexican Warrior’s face collides with the hard plastic, and falls to the floor, dazed. The referee’s count reaches four, and Carlito picks up Chavo... but the Mexican Warrior boots him in the gut, and flings the Caribbean superstar into the ring steps! The crowd groans, and Carlito winces, seated, leant against the steel. Chavo rolls back into the ring, and rests, while the referee continues the count... 6... 7... 8... Carlito grabs the bottom rope... 9... and hauls himself back in!
The crowd cheers, and Carlito struggles to his feet, dazed and exhausted. Chavo walks over to him, and puts him in Catapult position... before lowering Carlito’s neck below the middle rope... and driving the Catapult up into the ropes! Carlito bounces across the ring, grasping his neck, and the crowd boos... the referee tells Chavo off, but soon he’s needed to count the cover, as Chavo shoots the half... 1-2- but Carlito kicks out! The crowd starts chanting Carlito’s name, and the Caribbean superstar gets up... only into a Suplex from Chavo, who rolls... and hits a second one... and rolls... looking for the Three Amigos, but Carlito reverses it, and hits the third Amigo himself! The crowd cheers wildly, and Carlito rises, ready to take control. Guerrero gets up – Carlito tries to whip the Mexican Warrior to the turnbuckle, but Chavo sends him there instead, following up... but Carlito scales the turnbuckle with his feet, backflipping over Chavo... and hitting an insane Backstabber as he does! The crowd goes nuts, and Carlito covers... 1-2-3!
Match Time: 8:56
The crowd cheers, and Carlito gets up on the turnbuckle, spreading his arms out in victory. He wobbles his head a little, and his afro joins in. He hops off the turnbuckle, smiling, and has his arm raised by the referee. The referee leaves the ring, and Carlito turns around – BUT HE GETS CLOCKED WITH THE UNITED STATES TITLE BELT BY THE MIZ! The crowd boos the hell out of the cocky Champion, who stands above Carlito, a dark look on his face. Replays show the Miz hitting Carlito in the back of the head with the title belt, and Carlito could be unconscious! The Miz yanks Carlito back to his feet... AND DELIVERS THE SKULL-CRUSHING FINALE! The crowd boos intensely, before moving on to chants of ‘You suck!’ The Miz raises his arms, taking back his cocky demeanour, and the chants intensify.
Cole: Well, Carlito pulled out a win against Chavo Guerrero, but he was attacked by his Armageddon opponent, the Miz, afterwards.
King: Well, that’s just the kind of person the Miz is, Michael. I can’t say I didn’t see that coming.
The Miz kisses his title above Carlito, then smirks into the camera, raising the title as far as it will go above his head.
Raw cuts backstage, where a very focused-looking Kofi Kingston is wandering down the corridor, in his full tracksuit, and slapping his hands together a little. The crowd roars at the sight of him, and suddenly, Todd Grisham comes charging from behind him with a mic to interview him – Kofi sees him and makes no change in expression.
Grisham: Uh, Kofi, could you tell me what mindset you’re in going into this colossal 8-Man Tag Team match, with only six days before your Steel Cage match with Randy Orton?
Kofi thinks as he walks.
Kingston: Well Todd, tonight’s a great opportunity for me. I get one more chance to show the world... proof, if you needed more, that I can hold a candle to Randy Orton. That I can hang with the best. That I am capable of fighting against Raw’s brightest.
Mixed reaction. Kofi smirks a little.
Kingston: As for this Sunday... I can’t wait, Todd. I’m finally gonna give Randy Orton what I’ve been waiting to give him for a long time now – a taste of respect.
A big cheer goes up for Kofi, who smiles.
Kingston: Randy likes to think that because he’s been here longer, he can play me. He can end my dreams in that cage. But that’s not gonna happen. Nah, not to me. I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna take Randy Orton to the limit, for the good of the whole of the WWE Universe.
Another big cheer goes up.
Kingston: I’m gonna show the world that Kofi Kingston is ready to make the big step, and that the Age of Orton will never return!
The crowd roars, and Kofi quickens his pace to a jog, charging out of shot, leaving Todd Grisham to smile admirably after him. Raw goes to a break.
As Raw returns, the bell rings.
Roberts: The following 8-Man Tag Team contest is scheduled for one fall!
ARE YOU READY?
The Kansas Coliseum explodes, and D-Generation X arrive, smiling!
Roberts: Introducing first... the Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels... the Game, Triple H... D-GENERATION... X!
The crowd roars, and Triple H and Shawn Michaels wander down the ramp, pumped up, and flinging glowsticks into the crowd.
Cole: One of the most beloved tandems in history, D-Generation X are in the building, people!
King: This Sunday, these two are gonna be fighting with the Tag Team Titles on the line, with three other teams – it’s gonna be amazing!
DX get into the ring, tossing as many glowsticks into the crowd as possible before they do, and unleash the four green ‘X’s, before posing in their usual fashion. The arena lightens, and it turns a much lighter green...
SOS... I HEAR ‘DEM SHOUTIN’! SOS... I HEAR ‘DEM CRYIN’!
The arena roars with similar noise for Kofi Kingston, who bursts out on to the ramp, grinning. The Ghanaian slaps his hands together three times, unleashing three bursts of fireworks. He throws off his tracksuit top, and hands it to a child fan at ringside, making his day. He starts to kick his heels as he jogs down the ramp.
Roberts: And, from Ghana, West Africa, weighing in at 221 pounds... Kofi Kingston!
Cole: The man who will have a steel cage surrounding him come this Sunday, but for someone who’s going to be in his first ever Steel Cage match, he’s surprisingly confident, King.
King: Kofi’s got bags of talent, Cole. He’s gonna really step up his game at Armageddon, you can count on it.
Kofi slides into the ring, and slaps the hands of both the Game and the Heartbreak Kid. His music subsides... and that of the WWE Champion begins! The arena erupts with a massive roar for John Cena, who charges down the ramp, holding his title.
Roberts: And from West Newbury, Massachusetts, weighing in at 240 pounds... he is the WWE Champion, John Cena!
Cole: Tonight could well be the last Raw we see of John Cena with that title belt, King.
King: Jack Swagger’s gonna give him one hell of a fight, Michael. Maybe Cena’s experience might give him the edge! I mean, Jack Swagger’s never been in a World Title match before – can he step up to such a big occasion?
Cena launches underneath the bottom rope to join his team, quickly throwing his cap into the crowd, and chucking his shirt to ringside. He raises his title high, provoking a big response from the crowd. His teammates eye it casually, possibly thinking about the next pay-per-view... that’s the Rumble, by the way.
...IT’S A NEW DAAAAAAY!
Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase arrive first, smirking. DX look at them with disdain.
Roberts: And their opponents! Introducing first, at a combined weight of 458 pounds... the team of Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase, two-thirds of the Legacy!
The crowd boos the cocky young pair as they wander down the ramp.
Cole: This talented young duo have been fighting for the respect of the Legacy cohort Randy Orton in recent weeks – this will be the first time the three have teamed together in a while.
King: Well, if Cody and Ted can win the Tag Team Titles on Sunday, I’d say Orton will respect them. I know, because that’s what Orton said a couple of weeks ago!
Legacy get in the ring, moving to the far corner, whereas the face team are in the corner near the ramp, as usual.
I HEAR VOICES IN MY HEAD, THEY COUNSEL ME, THEY UNDERSTAND... THEY TALK TO ME!
The crowd boos as the Legend Killer, the Viper, the leader of Legacy, Randy Orton arrives, and stands atop the ramp, surveying the scene in front of him. Kofi Kingston eyes him from the ring.
Roberts: And, from St. Louis, Missouri, weighing in at 245 pounds... Randy Orton!
The boos intensify as Orton stalks down the ramp at a snail’s pace, the stage behind him a swirling orange colour.
Cole: The Viper, the methodical Legend Killer, the man who will face Kofi Kingston in six days’ time at Armageddon inside a brutal Steel Cage match – Randy Orton. One of the WWE’s biggest stars, at a young age – once a member of Evolution, once a member of the tandem Rated RKO, and now leader of his own, Legacy. He is a six-time World Champion, a one-time Intercontinental Champion, a one-time World Tag Team Champion, and the winner of the 2009 Royal Rumble back in January. Quite the resume, King.
King: Yup, Michael. Not to mention, he’s been in a total two Steel Cage matches over the course of his career – Kofi hasn’t been in one. That could be the difference, come Sunday.
Orton walks around the other side of the ring to avoid his opponents, and joins Legacy, who he gives a cold, emotionless stare to.
CHECK, ONE TWO... OH YEAH!
And finally, here comes the All-American American, who obviously hasn’t learnt a lesson in humility after his massive loss to ten men last week, as he charges on to the stage, as arrogant as ever. He beats his chest a few times, provoking boos from the crowd.
Roberts: And from Perry, Oklahoma, weighing in at 260 pounds... the All-American American... Jack Swagger!
The boos intensify. Swagger walks to the middle of the ramp, and drops with a few push-ups, causing fireworks to explode from the stage behind him.
Cole: As John Cena told us earlier, this Sunday, Jack Swagger comes of age in front of the entire world – he’ll be one-on-one with the Champ himself, with the WWE Championship on the line.
King: Tonight is his last chance to make an impression to John Cena before their match on Sunday, and I bet Swagger will want to do just that.
Swagger walks round the side of the ring, eyeing Cena’s title belt, before stepping up on to the apron. The referee takes the title belt, and hands it to ringside – Swagger can’t take his eyes off it! Well, while he’s not looking, Cena charges across the ring, and sends him from the apron with a huge Shoulder Block! Swagger clatters to the outside floor, but is up immediately, roaring at the smirking Cena.
Cole: As good ol’ JR might say, business is picking up!
He’s right – DX take advantage of the confusion, charging across the ring, knocking both members of Legacy from the apron, too! Kofi wanders across the ring too, and Orton drops from the apron by his own power, wary. Legacy slowly get to their feet, and the faces raise their arms, making a statement. Swagger yells obscenities at Cena, Rhodes and DiBiase stare down DX evilly, and Orton merely looks at Kofi with cold eyes, intrigued.
Cole: We have a massive 8-Man Tag Team match to come, after the break.
Raw goes to a quick break while everyone resets. Obviously, when Raw returns, the match has already started.
John Cena, Kofi Kingston and D-Generation X vs Jack Swagger, Randy Orton, and Legacy
We’ll join the action after about eight minutes of frequent tags and a variety of confrontations between certain Armageddon opponents. As we join, it’s Cody Rhodes holding a battered Triple H in a headlock. The Game badly needs a tag after a number of minutes being pounded by different opponents, and Cena, Michaels and Kingston are all more than ready to accept such a tag – but the Cerebral Assassin’s gonna have work his way to his corner. The Game fires some hard elbows to the gut of Rhodes, and tries to force his way to his feet... and he gets there, but Rhodes kills all his momentum, transitioning the hold, dropping him with a Neckbreaker! The crowd boos as Rhodes looks out at the crowd with a smirk, before dragging the Game to Rhodes’ own corner, and tagging in Jack Swagger. The All-American American comes in, smirking, and deliberately drops a carefully measured knee to the gut of Triple H, every so often looking over at Cena to check that he’s watching – naturally, he is, and Swagger smirks, dropping another knee to the Game’s stomach. Swagger rolls Triple H to a neutral corner, on his back, and takes a few steps back... before charging, jumping up the turnbuckle, and landing his Delayed Corner Falling Splash! Swagger shoots the half... 1-2—BUT THE GAME KICKS OUT, SHOWING THERE’S LIFE IN HIM YET!
John Cena leads the support for the hot tag, and soon, Kofi and Shawn follow the WWE Champion’s lead, enticing the entire arena to start clapping – on the other side of the ring, Swagger tags in DiBiase, who picks Triple H up, and puts his own arm around his neck... setting up for Dream Street... but the Game fights back, spinning out of the hold, and whipping the Million Dollar Prince to the ropes... and nailing the Double A Spinebuster on his return! The crowd roars, and it’s Cena stretching the furthest, desperate for the tag... Triple H crawls across the ring, stretching out... DiBiase gets the tag to Rhodes... BUT HERE COMES JOHN CENA, LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN! He hammers Rhodes with a Flying Shoulder Block... and goes to the ropes as Rhodes stands... and hits another... Rhodes gets up, swings an arm, which Cena ducks... and nails the Spin-Out Side Slam Bomb! Cena rises, raising his hand, and the arena roars! The Champ takes a step towards his opponents’ corner... and waves the ‘You Can’t See Me’ to Jack Swagger! Swagger fumes, the crowd roars, and Cena heads for those ropes... he comes back, shuffles... and nails the Five – Knuckle – Shuffle! Rhodes sells it beautifully, and Cena crouches in the corner... Ted DiBiase charges into the ring, trying to kill Cena’s momentum... but he gets rocked with Sweet Chin Music from Shawn Michaels, and thrown from the ring! HBK cries out with adrenaline, and the crowd roars... but Randy Orton flings him from the ring too! Orton turns... straight into Trouble in Paradise from Kofi Kingston! Orton rolls from the ring, stunned, and Kofi follows him out, keeping the offence up – Swagger stands on the bottom rope, roaring ‘IT MEANS NOTHING, CENA!’ and Rhodes finally gets up, gets hoisted on to the WWE Champion’s shoulders... ATTITUDE ADJUSTMENT FROM THE CHAMP HIMSELF! Cena shoots the half, and Swagger can only watch, not daring to enter the fray... 1-2-3! Send those fans home happy, cause Cena and co. are your winners!
Winners: John Cena, Kofi Kingston and D-Generation X
Match Time: 10:34
Kofi gets back in the ring, as do both members of DX, and the four have their arms raised in a line, as the crowd goes wild. Swagger is on the outside, fuming, while Orton licks his wounds, hunched in the corner where the barricade meets at a 90° angle, and Legacy hold their injured body parts, and stand defeated on the ramp, DiBiase holding up a dazed Rhodes.
Cole: Score one for the good guys, King!
King: Oh man, Michael! What a way to finish Raw! I can’t wait for this Sunday!
Cole: Indeed, King – we’ll be live in the Pepsi Center, in Denver, Colorado, two days after Christmas Day, where we have seven glorious matches lined up for the WWE Universe, live on pay-per-view! Thank you for watching Monday Night Raw, I’m Michael Cole, with WWE Hall of Famer, Jerry ‘the King’ Lawler, we’ll see you Sunday!
Each man from the winning team takes to a turnbuckle, staring down their rival – the crowd in Kansas roars, and Raw fades... to... black. I thank you.

Re: Melvisboy's WWE: The Comeback
Your getting everything up fast so lets kick it with another review!!!!
Jericho/Henry: Good thing that Jericho started off Raw, however I'm surprised he didn't have anything to say before hand. Not very confident I guess? Anyway the match result was the best you can do and while I don't expect JeriShow to retain it gives them some momentum
okay maybe it would be a longshot for them to win, but at least Jericho picks up the dirty win.
Master's/Maryse/Bourne: Well Master's has no luck getting to Maryse, and the interaction between him and Bourne is pretty good. Two wins Bourne has over him (sounds like my Bourne/Sheamus feud lol). Anyway good way to hype a match later on and the match at Armageddon to see who will be challenging for the US Title.
Noble/Rory(or whatever the hell his name is):
: Vintage Noble out of Michael Cole, I'm glad Noble won with the Dragon Sleeper a possible way to stop Sheamus.... well speaking of Sheamus there he is for the attack afterwards. Perfect way to build steam for one of the matches that I cannot wait for. Armageddon hurry up already lol.
Chavo Promo: Eh pretty good, hyped up the US Battle Royal, I still don't take him seriously maybe because the WWE damaged his rep in real life.
Maryse vs Gail: Obvious win for the challenger Maryse. Suprised by no hair pulling or anything afterwards, but a staredown is equally as good.
Evan Bourne vs. Masters: Another huge win for Bourne and I know you said no predictions yet, but Bourne is my favorite to win the Rumble at Armageddon. You have used him very well. As for Master's hopefully he can look strong in the Battle Royal.
Cena: Perfect in character promo from Cena. Tough to call this one, however really looking foward to their match at Armageddon.
Carlito v. Chavo: Fnatastic finish to end the match. Would love to see that in real life, and like Sheamus did earlier Miz is there to interfere which is fine to build himself some momentum, and this is another match I'm split on, so I'm glad I do get some extra time to predict.
Kofi promo: It was very good with the whole respect lines and such. Do I think he has a realalistic shot hell no. Kingston has done really good and you have hyped him really well. This has been a good feud and to me it will end at Armageddon but like IRL in the words of Orton "Stupid". Don't get me wrong I love everything you have been doing with Kofi, but I can't see you putting him over Orton especially with the Rumble coming up faster and faster.
Main Event: Very good main event as the endings all the heels got finishers from their face rivals which is good. Swagger not getting the FU, very surprised by but also smart, because Swagger does not look weak (although now thinking about it he can look weak not trying to break the pin) Either way the ending was fine and the result was good.
Overall: Very good show, getting everyone involved. I don't know the Noble match maybe sub Rory for Santino since Santino is in a match for Armageddon, but other than that it was flawless. Can't wait for Armageddon. Great graphics, and some tough choices, so I will be pondering a few matches. Anyway good luck Melvisboy trying to bang out the last two then with Armageddon. I will be reviewing of course.

Re: Melvisboy's WWE: The Comeback
Match 1 – Jericho vs. Henry
-A good first match that builds more for the Tag Team Title match at the PPV. Jericho wins which is fine, but I don’t think he needed to cheat to win. Henry hurt his knee which Jericho should’ve taken advantage of and been able to win cleanly. Having the injury keeps Henry strong still but whatever not a big deal. Now the question is will Henry make it to the PPV?
Backstage – Masters, Maryse, & Bourne
-Masters getting rejected was great but I have a feeling you’re going to end up having them be a couple which is good. But for now the failed attempts are great. Bourne goes right up to Masters and gets in his face. I like to see the smaller guys showing they can’t be pushed around. It looks like this could be a potential big feud in the future, maybe even for the U.S. Title if one of them wins at the PPV and then the U.S. Title in their title match.
Match 2 – Robbie vs. Noble
-Robbie? Why? I wasn’t expecting to see him. Oh well it doesn’t matter. I’m surprised this was a long match. I thought this would be a nice squash match to build up Noble. Well at least Noble gets the win, but then…Sheamus takes out Noble! I’m a Sheamus fan so I like this. And I like the “put the dog down” line referring to Noble’s nickname.
Backstage – Chavo & Shane
-Good promo and accomplished what it needed to. Lots of “esse” use in there haha. Chavo opens his mouth and of course it gets him a match that he didn’t want.
Match 3 – Maryse vs. Gail
-An obvious win for Maryse but a good match that built momentum for her towards Sunday. I liked the stare down at the end between Maryse and Melina. Always enjoy a stare down before a championship match.
Match 4 – Bourne vs. Masters
-Good, I’m glad to see Bourne win this match. Masters isn’t going to be happy about that one. Bourne has Masters number and is in his head. I’m curious to see how Masters reacts to this.
Promo – Cena
-Nice promo by Cena setting up for the title match against Swagger. Cena seemed to be in character and did sort of a normal “Cena promo” but without the screaming which is fine by me.
Match 5 – Carlito vs. Chavo
-Wow really nice finish, especially for a Raw match against Chavo. Carlito winning was necessary seeing as he has a title match in 6 days, but a nice competitive match between the two. Miz attacking Carlito was great. The only thing missing was “I’m Awesome!” which I would’ve loved even more but that’s ok. Good job on this.
Promo – Kofi
-Good promo by Kofi, getting the mentality of the high flier as he gets set for a huge Steel Cage match in 6 days. Should be a good match.
Match 6 – Cena, Kofi, & DX vs. Swagger, Orton, & Legacy
-A good way to start things off showing that they all can’t wait until this Sunday. Good match and the ending with all the different finishers going off and everyone brawling was good. Cena wins the match which is fine, but I’m surprised Swagger didn’t go in and break it up. I understand not wanting to be involved in the brawl but that made him look like he just gave up which wasn’t great in my opinion. The good guys stand tall at the end of the night which is fine.
*Notes: Good Raw. Just a few things. The main event was really stacked but I guess it was so you could get them all used and showcase the mid to lower card guys as well. Build up for the PPV was good. My only problem was that you didn’t have all the teams from the Tag Team match interact but I guess it’s been building up long enough and it would’ve been too much especially with that main event so that’s ok. Other than that, good job and I look forward to Armageddon.

FlyinStyles Raw Review
The opening match was solid, Jericho getting the cheap win was competely fine, but I do have one bitch about this match and tell if there is something I don't know here but if this is a match to built up the tag title match why wouldn't partners be at ringside? I think it would've build up a little more if MVP and Show were at ringside. But either way solid, solid match.
The backstage segment was very good, you've got the Maryse character down to the final details, I love the accent, Masters was ok, I still think his Masterpiece character is kind of robotic and he seemed to have a touch of personallity here but oh well. Bourne started out shaky but improved as he went on. Solid segment.
Noble vs. Robbie, who cares. It got the point across with Sheamus attacking him. The after promo did it's job.
Is Carlito still heel? Because I believe you ripped for heel vs. heel in the past. Just saying, still luv ya bro. But At least you're doing something with Chavo, he probably won't win but oh well at least it's not the shit with Hornswoggle.
The Diva's match was predictable, obviously Maryse was going to win, the war of words, whatever. Standerd Diva's segment.
I have a little bit of problem with the booking of this feud, I like that you're getting Bourne over as an underdog but at some point once he beats a guy bigger then him enough times, Master doesn't look creditible. Masters should've won at least one of these matches but oh well. I like that you're pushing Bourne.
Cena promo was outstanding, I could see that whole segment in my head, great job.
Carlito versus Chavo was a very good match, Miz did his thing after no problems here.
The Pre-match brawl wasn't needed, IMo
the main event was very good, Cena pinning Rhodes was the way to go with end, though Kofi getting a pin in here would've done him wonders. Either way great main event, great way to build up he Pay-Per-View.
BTW you're doing a contest for picks right?
Overall - I think the show was very good, nothing terribly awful a lot of good stuff, perfect going home show. Nice job 8/10

Re: Melvisboy's WWE: The Comeback
Hey guys. This is the ECW preview - it's a stacked show in terms of promos, not so much on the matches side of things. I will run through the feedback as usual before the actual show instead of the preview, but RatedRKO31, amrocky25, and FlyinStyles, you are all fantastic. Really. You can each expect feedback on the next show you each post, count on it.
I think I also owe an apology to Les Turrey too, who's given me two reviews, and I've barely skim-read his thread/shows. So, I apologise, man, because I haven't had a chance, and reviewing your show could be a bit more difficult for me, because I didn't start watching wrestling until WAY after your thread is set. I'll try my hardest when I get a chance, though.
ECW is about half-done. I was hesitant to post the preview because I wasn't sure this card was the one I wanted, but I'm sure on it now. If not, I'll just edit it, but I doubt that I'll need to very much. Enjoy this taster, it'll be up in a couple of days or so, I'd imagine.
Omaha Civic Auditorium, Omaha, Nebraska
22th December 2009
An Incoming Invasion
After tonight, there’s only three ECW shows until ECW Invades: Saturday Night’s Main Event, and it is highly tipped that we’ll see some matches for that 90 minute pay-per-view announced on tonight’s edition of ECW. To cap off a big night on ECW tonight, ECW Champion Christian is to announce, with words taken from the mouth of ECW General Manager Tiffany, what part he and his No. 1 Contenders, Paul Burchill and Shelton Benjamin, will play at the event.
Bringing Back the Extreme
Tommy Dreamer made an emphatic return to ECW last week, nearly putting Zack Ryder through a table. This week, Dreamer will open up the show on the mic – what could Dreamer have in mind for the man who so brutally attacked him three weeks ago? What might he have in store for Ryder, and what will he have to say about what he plans to do next? There’s one way to find out.
Big Men Collide
William Regal and Vladimir Kozlov – the British Brawler and the Moscow Mauler have been at the throat of Ezekiel Jackson, after the New Yorker left the Ruthless Roundtable, unhappy with his standing in the faction. Regal has got one over on Jackson for two weeks in a row now, and this week, in ECW’s Main Event, Ezekiel Jackson takes to the ring against Vladimir Kozlov, one-on-one. With all the bad blood between these two, and with William Regal sure to be at ringside to support the big Russian, we’re sure to be in for a heated contest.
The Mastodon Under New Control
Last week, Abraham Washington led Big Daddy V to attack Tiffany’s new Executive Consultant Tony Atlas, before claiming that, alongside the Mastodon, he would be taking over ECW, and no-one could stop him. This week, Big Daddy V faces Goldust in a battle which seems to be quite strongly in the Mastodon’s favour – will Washington speak, and what will happen when the Bizarre One meets the 500 pounder in combat?
Two men who have failed to make it to the Royal Rumble match in recent weeks, Manu and Yoshi Tatsu, will face off tonight – the winner earns a spot in the Royal Rumble... the loser gets nothing. This is the last chance for both men, and if they want to be in with a shot at that Wrestlemania World Title match, they need the win tonight. Both men have been feuding recently, Yoshi alongside Gregory ‘Hurricane’ Helms, and Manu with the Man Beast, Rhyno. A win tonight would very much aid their cause in beating their rivals in this ever-running contest.

Re: Melvisboy's WWE: The Comeback
Hey guys. Again, thanks to RatedRKO31, amrocky25, and FlyinStyles for the feedback they provided, as well as HarlemHeat for his comments, I always appreciate it. I’ll have a quick run-through of the points you made, guys.
Jericho talking crossed my mind, but I figured I’d save it for SmackDown – whether I’m writing it in full or not, he doesn’t have to speak all of the time I guess, and I figured there was no point in throwing in a few ‘parasite’ comments for the sake of it. MVP should have been at ringside, yes, but Show, no, because Show and Jericho are enemies now, as I’ve mentioned before. Jericho winning was down to the fact that he’d taken three pinfalls over the last three weeks, and a victory, albeit a dirty one, over the World’s Strongest Man would keep him looking partially credible.
Bourne/Masters is similar to Bourne/Sheamus, but this one won’t be ending with an epic, kick-ass Street Fight, RatedRKO31.
I apologise for the length of Noble/McAllister. It was meant to be essentially a squash, and it carried on for too long, so accept my apologies on that one. Robbie was chosen because it meant Noble was shown beating a guy bigger than him, showing that he can damn well do it on Sunday, too.
Oh dear, Stylesy. I’ll just clear this up, one last time, cause it’s been asked a couple of times in this thread. Carlito is not a heel. He is a face. He returned the same Raw when he verbally abused Cena irl (i.e heel), instead returning to cost the Miz his match with Evan Bourne in this BTB (i.e face). He then hit the Miz with a Backstabber on Carlito’s Cabana, and has been consistently cheered by the crowd since. He is a firm face.
I would point out, not that ANYBODY would be able to figure this out from my vague writing, that I don’t plan to make a massive Masters/Bourne feud from here. I could, but I don’t want to. It’ll end at Armageddon, in that Battle Royal. Essentially, it’s been all Bourne, but that’s more down to the fact that Bourne is going places, and Masters isn’t.
My favourite Cena promo I’ve written so far, tbh.
Not too long, but it meant something, it wasn’t just needless waffling. Very pleased you guys liked it.
Glad to see I’m making these hard to predict.
Swagger not going to break up the pinfall was a mistake when I look back. I wanted to have Swagger and Cena looking straight at each other as Cena hit the Attitude Adjustment, but I realise now I could’ve still done that with Swagger being knocked from the apron or something. Apologies.
Yes, I’m doing a predictions contest. It’ll be up in a couple of days, following SmackDown. I’ll piggyback it on to the PPV Preview, as is the style around these parts.
Anyhow, here’s ECW. I’m afraid I’ve made a pretty massive mistake. I was under the assumption that I had made the Rhyno vs Yoshi Tatsu match from a couple of weeks ago a Royal Rumble Qualifier – as I clearly didn’t, that makes this week’s Tatsu/Manu match NOT a ‘last chance’ qualifier, as Yoshi never lost a qualifier in the first place. To correct this, as I’ve already written the show as if Tatsu lost that match, and Rhyno qualified for the Rumble, I’ve effectively changed the format of that match. I’m sorry for this, but having already written the show as such, it makes it a bit difficult on me. Sorry, fellas. From this point, count Rhyno in that Rumble as if he’d won his spot three weeks ago, in that match against Yoshi Tatsu.
Omaha Civic Auditorium, Omaha, Nebraska
22th December 2009
The ECW video package plays, and the camera cuts to the arena, where fireworks hammer across the stage, and the crowd roars. We cut to ringside, where Josh Matthews is sat alongside Matt Striker.
Matthews: Good evening, and welcome to ECW! I’m Josh Matthews, alongside your teacher, Matt Striker, and we have a big night of surprises ahead!
Striker: Hi Josh. You’re right, it’s gonna be an amazing show. We’re only three shows away from ECW Invades: Saturday Night’s Main Event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, which is sure to be a cracker! Might we get some matches announced for that event tonight? We’ll have to wait and see.
The music of Tommy Dreamer lights up the Omaha Civic Auditorium, and the ECW faithful roars! Dreamer wanders out, wearing his usual ECW t-shirt, and points out at the crowd with a smile, before starting down the ramp.
Mayhew: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome... Tommy Dreamer!
A massive cheer goes up for the Heart and Soul of ECW, who slaps the hands of the fans at ringside.
Matthews: This man is E... C... W... personified, ladies and gentlemen.
Striker: Tommy Dreamer eats, sleeps, and breathes ECW, Josh. Three weeks ago, he was brutally attacked by young Zack Ryder, and I don’t think Tommy’s forgotten about it.
Dreamer rolls under the bottom rope, and collects a mic from ringside. He waits for the ‘ECW!’ chants to die down, then speaks.
Dreamer: Man is it good to be back!
A big cheer goes up, and Dreamer smiles.
Dreamer: Ya’know, I’ve really missed you guys. You guys are the air I breathe.
Another massive cheer.
Dreamer: Sorry I was away... but you guys all know why.
Boos begin to fill the arena.
Dreamer: Zack Ryder.
The boos peak.
Dreamer: Ryder attacked me while I was on the floor. He brutalised me with a steel chair and a Singapore cane. He went too far.
Ok... now, the boos peak.
Dreamer: He put me in a hospital bed. But I’m back, baby. I... am... back!
A big cheer goes up. Dreamer looks totally pumped.
Dreamer: I did not lie down and let Zack Ryder tread on me – I am the Innovator of Violence! The Heart and Soul of ECW! Hell, I ate more Extreme at breakfast than Zack Ryder’s experienced his entire life!
Another big cheer.
Dreamer: But that doesn’t mean I’m not out for revenge. Cause I am.
The crowd starts to chant Tommy’s name. Dreamer starts to pace.
Dreamer: I’m gonna bring the side of Extreme to Zack Ryder’s monkey ass! I’m gonna put him through an Extreme experience, courtesy of the man who put that damn ‘E’ in E... C... W!
Another massive roar.
Dreamer: Zack Ryder disrespected me, and he disrespected ECW. Every since I’ve been gone, he’s been strutting round like he owns the damn place.
Dreamer: But boy, I’m gonna humble you. I’m gonna show you that this old timer’s still got fight in him... I’m gonna introduce Zack Ryder to the real Land of the Extreme!
A massive pop for Dreamer, who is really getting into this.
Dreamer: So! I’ve got a challenge for you, Zack. I know you’re back there, so listen up, kid.
Dreamer turns to the ramp.
Dreamer: In just over three weeks, we’re gonna be in Philadelphia for the ECW-only event, Saturday Night’s Main Event – Ryder, I want you, then, in an Extreme Rules match, so I can give you exactly what you deserve... respect for me, and respect for ECW.
The crowd cheers, and Dreamer clenches his teeth briefly.
Dreamer: So, Ryder... Why don’t you get down here and accept my challenge like a man?
There’s a massive pause. Dreamer stands, waiting impatiently.
OHHH, RADIOOOOOO, TELL ME EVERYTHING YOU KNOW...
The crowd howls with boos, and out comes Zack Ryder, smirking, in his usual attire, complete with shades and headband. He already has a mic, and he speaks from the stage – he pauses to let the heat rain down, then speaks, loudly and brashly.
Ryder: Tommy! A pleasure, really.
Boos for Ryder’s sarcasm.
Ryder: Didn’t I get the message across three weeks ago? No? Shame. It would’ve made this whole affair so... much... easier.
Dreamer glares at Ryder, who paces on the stage.
Ryder: I’ve already said, Tommy. We are in the middle of my epic journey... to end the career of the last ECW Original... which apparently, is an achievement to some people.
Ryder: Me? Well, to me, you’re not much of a challenge, so I don’t see why people make such a big deal out of it, really...
Ryder chuckles to himself.
Ryder: I’ll more than happily put you out of your misery, Tommy... really, I’m that kind. But you know what? I want something else.
Tommy raises an eyebrow.
Ryder: Yeah, that’s right. Tommy, I’ll take you on at Saturday Night’s Main Event...
The crowd cheers, but-
Ryder: But! If I win... when I win... your career? It’s done.
The crowd boos intensely, and Ryder smirks. Dreamer steps back and looks to be thinking.
Ryder: Huh? What’s the matter, Tommy? Wanna talk it through with your wife and kids, huh? Wow, how the mighty... have fallen. Well, how... you have fallen.
Dreamer clenches his teeth, and the crowd chants his name. Ryder uses air quotes...
Ryder: Not exactly the... uh, bravado that made you, uh, famous, huh, Tommy? What’s the matter? Why prolong the suffering of these so-called fans of yours, huh? No-one wants you any more, Tommy... no-one wants to see you lose week after week... nobody’s interested in the so-called Heart and Soul of ECW!
Massive boos, and Dreamer looks like he has some sort of emotional strife.
Ryder: We are living in the new era! Ryder’s Era! Where old timers like you don’t bother the high and mighty like me, Tommy! Where youth reigns over experience every single day! Where you... don’t... exist! Answer me, Tommy! C’MON! Show these fans, these pathetic fans, just how much of a man you are!
Dreamer’s had enough. He turns to the stage, where Ryder is standing, and roars into the mic:
Dreamer: YOU’RE ON!
THE NOISE IS INCREDIBLE INSIDE THE ARENA! Ryder’s eyes go wide – he obviously wasn’t expecting Dreamer to take him on!
Matthews: OH MY GOD! It’s gonna be Tommy Dreamer with his career on the line against Zack Ryder in three and a half weeks’ time! I can’t believe this!
Dreamer starts beating his chest out of pure adrenaline, and the crowd roars ‘TOMMY! TOMMY! TOMMY!’ Ryder curls his lip, and bares his teeth from the top of the stage, fired up. The camera switches between Dreamer and Ryder, and ECW fades away to a break.
As ECW returns, we’re at ringside.
Matthews: Welcome back to ECW, where there’s just been a monster announcement regarding ECW Invades: Saturday Night’s Main Event – it’ll be Tommy Dreamer versus Zack Ryder in an Extreme Rules match, and if Ryder wins, the Heart and Soul of ECW must retire.
Striker: Yep, Josh. Tommy Dreamer putting his career on the line to teach Zack Ryder a lesson he’ll never forget in respect – well, every ECW fan is fully behind Tommy in this one.
The arena turns gold, and out comes Goldust to his usual theme and TitanTron. The crowd gives a mild cheer for the veteran, who raises his arms, and starts down the ramp. The bell rings.
Mayhew: The following contest is scheduled for one fall! Introducing first, from Hollywood, California, weighing in at 242 pounds... Goldust!
Matthews: The Bizarre One hasn’t been in the best form of late, and I certainly don’t like his chances in this one, Matt.
Striker: I’m with you there, Josh.
Goldust gets into the ring, and throws his wig to the side. His music subsides, and is replaced by that of Big Daddy V, prompting heavy boos from the crowd. The big man arrives, with a smirking Abraham Washington at his side.
Mayhew: And his opponent! From Harlem, New York, weighing in at 500 pounds... Big Daddy V!
The crowd groans as always at the weight announcement, and V starts to stride down the ramp, frowning as usual.
Matthews: The 500 pound Mastodon, ladies and gentlemen. Last week, the big man attacked ECW’s new Executive Consultant, Tony Atlas, backstage.
Striker: Under the instruction of Abraham Washington, who said he plans to ‘take over’ ECW, Josh. As of right now, I can’t really see how anybody plans to stop Big Daddy V.
The Mastodon takes the steps to the ring, and gets in the ring. Washington stands on the outside, not looking impressed by the miserable opponent they have to face. The referee checks both men, and kicks it off.
Goldust vs Big Daddy V
I’ll just write from the start, this one doesn’t last long. As soon as the bell chimes, the Bizarre One fires a ton of punches at the mid-section of the Mastodon, who totally no-sells it, and pushes Goldust away – the Bizarre One bounces off the ropes, and attempts a Shoulder Block, but Big Daddy V barely moves with the impact! The Mastodon grabs Goldust round the neck... and drives him into the mat with a Chokeslam! Goldust groans on the mat, and the crowd boos... the Mastodon bounces off the ropes, and runs () back to the middle of the ring, dropping a nasty Elbow Drop to the heart of Goldust! The Bizarre One yells out, and V picks him back to his feet, whips him to the turnbuckle... and nails a giant Corner Splash to Goldust, crushing his body against the turnbuckle! The Bizarre One looks totally broken already, and the Mastodon pulls him into the centre of the ring, hoists him up into an Oklahoma position... and hammers him with a brutal Powerslam! V doesn’t cover, instead standing, for one last killer move... Goldust struggles to his feet, totally in pieces... and he is grabbed by the Mastodon, yanked up into a Fireman’s Carry... and nailed with the Ghetto Drop! The Samoan Drop breaks Goldust completely, and the Mastodon makes the academic cover... 1-2-3! That was just brutal.
Winner: Big Daddy V
Match Time: 1:09
Big Daddy V scowls at the referee, who doesn’t bother trying to raise his arm, and just leaves. Washington gets into the ring, annoyed, and looks at the Mastodon with a frustrated look, which the big man returns. Washington gets a mic from ringside, and the Mastodon’s music cuts. Washington looks down at Goldust with disgust.
Washington: Um... are ya kidding me? Is this serious?
The crowd boos.
Washington: We came here tonight to start our takeover of this brand. And what do we get? This... see, I don’t even know what this guy is, but he ain’t up to our standard. Yo V, get this freak out of my ring.
The crowd boos louder, and the Mastodon picks Goldust up with ease, before tossing him over the top rope! Goldust clatters to the outside floor, and the crowd groans, before going back to the boos.
Washington: Now, listen up, Tiffany. I told you I was taking over. And I am. So you better get out here, and hand your position as General Manager over... before things get ugly.
The crowd boos again. Washington smirks, and looks towards the ramp. Tiffany’s music hits, and the crowd cheers for the young General Manager comes out, not her usual smiley self. She stands on the stage, stony-faced, and holding a mic.
Tiffany: Abraham... last week, you did something awful. You and Big Daddy V attacked Tony Atlas.
Tiffany: But if you think I’m going to give up my position as General Manager of ECW to YOU, you’re very much mistaken.
Washington frowns, and the crowd cheers.
Tiffany: I’m not going to back down on this one, Abraham, and I don’t deal in blackmail. I will NEVER give you ECW, and you don’t scare me, nor anyone else on this brand.
The crowd cheers again, and Washington shrugs.
Washington: Looks like you still need a bit of convincin’, then, huh? V, do it.
The Mastodon immediately leaves the ring – Tiffany and the crowd are confused... but all becomes clear, as the big man heads for the announce table – and GRABS JOSH MATTHEWS BY THE HEAD! The crowd boos intensely, and the Mastodon yanks Matthews up from his seat, flinging him into the ring! Tiffany looks stunned, and V gets in the ring, hauling the terrified Matthews to his feet! The crowd boos the hell out of the Mastodon, who lifts Matthews into a Gorilla Press, way above his head! Matthews yells in shock, and Washington continues to look at Tiffany, before coldly nodding to the Mastodon, signalling for him to drop Matthews. Big Daddy V does just that... and Matthews clatters into the mat with massive force! The crowd boos even louder, and Washington smirks. Tiffany’s eyes are wide.
Washington: Still not budging, huh?
Washington nods again, and the Mastodon picks Matthews back to his feet – Striker says ‘Oh, no’ and V grasps Matthews by the throat... before tossing the commentator into the air, and driving him into the mat with a transitioning Falling Powerslam! The crowd erupts with more boos, and V looks to Washington, awaiting permission to carry on. Washington gives the approval, and the Mastodon presses Matthews on his back with his boot, before heading for the ropes, running... and nailing a beastly 500 pound Running Splash to Matthews’ fragile frame! The crowd boos all over Washington and Big Daddy V, who stand tall above Matthews, who is broken on the mat. Tiffany looks totally shocked on the stage, speechless. Washington smirks, and raises his mic.
Washington: This is just the beginning, Tiffany! I told you – no-one can stop us! And either I get this brand, or I tear it to pieces! You hear me?
Washington throws the mic to the side and raises his arms – V looks at him for a moment, and then raises a single arm. The crowd boos intensely, and a speechless Tiffany stands on the ramp, dumbfounded. A host of referees and medical staff rush to tend to Matthews, who is in pieces on the floor. ECW goes to a break.
As ECW returns, we are at ringside, where a black man is sat by Matt Striker. It’s only Byron Saxton!
Saxton: Welcome back to ECW, I’m Byron Saxton, filling in for Josh Matthews after that horrific attack we just saw on him moments ago, by Big Daddy V.
Striker: It wasn’t pretty, Byron. Still, life goes on...
Saxton: We’ll have to wait and see on how long it’ll be before Josh Matthews is back again after that one.
We cut backstage. Ezekiel Jackson is walking down the corridor, and the crowd cheers. Suddenly, William Regal appears, with Vladimir Kozlov behind him, prompting boos from the crowd.
Regal: Well Vladimir, if it isn’t the traitor.
Kozlov grunts with a smirk, and the crowd boos.
Regal: I’m amazed you’re still in the building, Ezekiel. I would’ve imagined you’d have run away from the prospect of facing Vladimir – he always was more talented than you.
Jackson frowns, and the boos continue.
Regal: Oh, I shall enjoy sitting at ringside when Vladimir destroys you tonight. It will be a pleasure.
Jackson scowls and retorts, growling his words.
Jackson: Will... Vlad... you guys treated me like crap when we were in the Roundtable together... something went wrong, it was ME who had to take the fall!
Jackson: I’m stronger on my own, Will. The fans cheering for me is ten times better than fighting with you two!
The crowd roars for Big Zeke, who takes a step forward into Regal’s face, stares him down for a moment, and then turns to walk away down the corridor. Regal yells after him:
Regal: Wait just a minute, sunshine! You and I are gonna go at it in that ring sometime, and when we do – I’m gonna show you just how much of a mistake it was when you betrayed the Ruthless Roundtable!
Jackson turns his head to watch Regal as he yells, and then turns away, walking down the corridor, and out of shot. The camera swings back towards Regal, showing his fuming face.
The camera cuts back to the arena, where the bell rings.
Mayhew: The following contest is a last chance Royal Rumble Qualifier!
The peppy, cliché music of Yoshi Tatsu begins over the speakers, and the crowd cheers wildly for the young Japanese superstar as he charges out on to the ramp, pumping his arms. Gregory ‘Hurricane’ Helms wanders out beside him, smiling, and ready to egg his friend on, to join the match he’s already in.
Mayhew: Introducing first... accompanied by Gregory ‘Hurricane’ Helms... from Japan, weighing in at 220 pounds... Yoshi Tatsu!
Tatsu jogs down the ramp, slapping the hands of the fans at ringside. Helms follows him with a smile.
Saxton: Well, the multi-talented Yoshi Tatsu lost his first Royal Rumble Qualifier a couple of weeks back, to the Man Beast, Rhyno. That night, Rhyno hit Tatsu with an amplified Gore with extra force from the ropes, giving Tatsu no chance for a place in the Rumble, but tonight, Yoshi has one final chance at making it to that 30-Man match, where the winner earns a chance to main event Wrestlemania, fighting for the World Title of their choice.
Striker: But remember, Bryon, if he loses tonight, that’s it. Yoshi doesn’t get another chance. And the same goes for Manu tonight.
Tatsu charges into the ring, pumping his arms as usual, and Helms finds a spot by the apron to watch the action unfold. The Samoan music of Manu strikes up, and the big man strides out, with Rhyno at his side.
Mayhew: And his opponent! Accompanied by Rhyno... from Samoa, weighing in at 280 pounds... Manu!
Saxton: Well, since Manu returned to the WWE, he hasn’t actually won a match, Matt.
Striker: It’s not like he hasn’t got the skill, Byron – but he’s been on bad form over recent weeks, no doubt about it.
Manu storms down the ramp, staring straight at Yoshi Tatsu, who looks just as ready to go. Rhyno looks about the arena, an animalistic look on his face. Manu gets into the ring, while the Man Beast takes up a spot by the apron – the referee checks both Tatsu and Manu are ready to go, then calls for the bell to start the match.
Yoshi Tatsu vs Manu
After five minutes, Manu is in control, stomping on Tatsu’s abdomen repeatedly. Tatsu rolls away to avoid further punishment, and gets up. He lashes out with a kick to Manu’s mid-section, but the big Samoan no-sells it, pushes Tatsu to the ropes... and feeds him a Big Boot to the mouth on his return! Tatsu goes down, clutching his face, and Manu covers... 1-2—but Tatsu gets a shoulder up! Manu yanks Tatsu back to his feet, and whips him to the corner – he charges, attempting to squash Tatsu against the turnbuckle... but Tatsu spins away, leaving Manu to hammer into the turnbuckle face-first! Manu falls away a little, and Tatsu steps on to the apron, springboarding... and connecting with a big Diving Spinning Heel Kick! Manu is totally taken out by the big move, and the Samoan lies on the mat, dazed. Tatsu hooks a leg... 1-2—but Manu flings him off at the last second! Both men get up, a bit tired, and Tatsu fires a few punches, but Manu grunts, and pushes him away – Tatsu comes back again... but Manu floors him with a Clothesline! Tatsu goes down, and Manu waits for him to rise again... he does, and the Samoan puts him in a Fireman’s Carry, ready for the Samoan Drop... but Tatsu struggles free, landing on his feet – AND WHEN MANU TURNS ROUND, HE GETS HAMMERED WITH THE BUZZSAW KICK! The crowd roars, and Rhyno facepalms on the outside... Tatsu will shoot the half... 1-2-3! Yoshi Tatsu is headed for the Rumble!
Winner: Yoshi Tatsu
Match Time: 6:33
Tatsu has his arm raised, and Helms joins him in the ring to celebrate. Manu rolls to the outside, where Rhyno berates him. The Man Beast shakes his head and looks to the duo in the ring, knowing that he’ll be in the Rumble with them both.
Saxton: And there you have it, it’ll be Yoshi Tatsu in the Royal Rumble, and you can see just how happy he is about that in the expression on his face.
Striker: A hard-fought win, Byron.
Tatsu and Helms celebrating is the last thing we see before ECW goes to a break.
As ECW returns, we are backstage. Savannah is standing with a mic.
Savannah: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome my guest at this time... the Ripper, Paul Burchill!
The crowd boos as Paul Burchill appears in the shot.
Savannah: Paul, what are your thoughts on what happened last week on ECW, when both you and Shelton Benjamin went tumbling through a table?
Burchill: Savannah, when I attacked Shelton Benjamin last week, I proved to the whole of ECW, that I am the most opportunistic, and most intelligent superstar on this brand.
Boos for Burchill.
Burchill: Throw in my natural skill and power... you might as well just give me the ECW Championship to me now.
Burchill: So, some people might not approve of my tactics, but I couldn’t care less. I guess some people just can’t cope with guys who just have more natural talent...
Obviously, the boos continue. Burchill smirks again.
Burchill: As for the table... I felt nothing. Shelton Benjamin isn’t half as tough as I am. I can take pain. I am indestructible. One of my many skills which will guide me to victory at Royal Rumble.
Savannah: What about ECW Invades: Saturday Night’s Main Event?
Burchill goes to answer, then looks around, confused.
Burchill: Wait a second... where the hell is Katie Lea?
Speak of the devil, Katie Lea walks into shot, frowning – she’s obviously thinking about something. Burchill frowns, but out of annoyance.
Burchill: Hey! Where have you been, huh?
Katie Lea bites her lip and thinks for a second.
Katie Lea: Oh... uh, you know... just seeing the sights... you know, Omaha’s an interesting place, lots of sights to see...
Burchill frowns again.
Burchill: What are you talking about? This place is a craphole.
Massive heat falls on Paul Burchill, who looks at Katie Lea like she’s stupid. Katie Lea mumbles an apology.
Burchill: Just don’t let it happen again. Not that I need you. I’ll be winning the ECW Championship at Royal Rumble with you or not.
Katie Lea looks hurt. Burchill frowns at her.
Burchill: Hey, get your head together, for god’s sake. What’s the matter with you?
Katie Lea straightens up, and nods her head.
Katie Lea: I’m sorry. I... must have been somewhere else. I’m right behind you.
Burchill looks at her for a second, then decides to forget about it, and leaves – Katie Lea scurries after him. The camera cuts to the ring, where the bell rings.
Mayhew: The following contest is scheduled for one fall!
Russian whispers fly from the speakers, before the full music of Vladimir Kozlov starts, and the Moscow Mauler arrives to boos, accompanied by William Regal.
Mayhew: Introducing first! Accompanied by William Regal... from Moscow, Russia, weighing in at 302 pounds... Vladimir Kozlov!
Saxton: The Moscow Mauler – the big Russian has claimed many a pinfall victory in the past, including that terrifying undefeated run he went on back when he first debuted in the WWE.
Striker: William Regal was wise to attempt to team with Kozlov, Byron – the Moscow Mauler is a great man to have on your side in a brawl.
Kozlov storms down the ramp and gets in the ring, grumpy as always. William Regal wanders to ringside and hovers. Ezekiel Jackson’s music starts up, and the crowd, who get more behind him every week, cheer. Jackson wanders out on to the stage, glaring at Kozlov. His trunks are black instead of red again this week.
Mayhew: And his opponent, from Harlem, New York, weighing in at 309 pounds... Ezekiel Jackson!
Jackson starts the journey down the ramp to the ring.
Saxton: Ezekiel Jackson has embroiled himself in this war with his old comrades in recent weeks, and I don’t doubt that Jackson will want to unleash some built-up anger in this one.
Striker: I bet Kozlov will want to, too.
Jackson gets into the ring, and immediately gets in Kozlov’s face – the Russian takes a few steps back. The referee checks both men, and kicks off the Main Event.
Vladimir Kozlov vs Ezekiel Jackson
We’re seven minutes in, after an evenly-matched contest filled with a lot of massive punches. As we join the action, the pair are exchanging said blows in the middle of the ring, trying to get one up on their opponent. When Jackson hits a punch, the crowd roars, and when Kozlov connects, the crowd boos. Jackson lashes out with a big right hand, sending Kozlov staggering back, but the Russian comes back with a massive blow of his own – Jackson falls away, bounces off the ropes... AND PUTS HIS MASSIVE FIST TO KOZLOV’S NOSE! The crowd roars, and Kozlov collapses, totally stunned! Jackson bounces off the adjacent ropes... and lands a huge Knee Drop to Kozlov’s face! The crowd cheers again, and Jackson lets out a huge roar – he waits for the Moscow Mauler to get up, and puts his arm around him, looking for the Uranage... but Kozlov pushes him away! Jackson comes back off the ropes, and Kozlov tries for the Battering Ram, but Jackson sidesteps the move... and LIFTS KOZLOV INTO THE AIR, DROPPING HIM WITH A 300 POUND POWERSLAM!
The crowd roars, and Jackson hooks a leg... 1-2—BUT KOZLOV KICKS OUT! Jackson stands, stunned, and grabs Kozlov, lifting him back up, but Kozlov punches him in the gut, spins him, and puts him in an inverted facelock straight away... Reverse DDT from Kozlov! The Moscow Mauler covers... 1-2- but Jackson was too near to the ropes, and he sticks a leg on the bottom one! Kozlov gets up, frustrated – Jackson struggles back to his feet, and Kozlov whips him to the corner, before charging – but he gets Jackson’s elbow to his already damaged nose, and the Russian reels back – he turns around... and Jackson hammers him with a Big Boot to the nose again! Kozlov goes down, his nose bent a little, and he grunts in pain on the mat – Jackson lifts him back to his feet – and drops the Russian with a massive Impaler DDT, on to his nose rather than his head! The crowd roars, and Matt Striker notes Jackson’s ring IQ, deliberately altering the move to target Kozlov’s weakened nose. Speaking of which – the Moscow Mauler’s nose looks in bad shape, and as he gets up, touching it tenderly, he gets grabbed by Big Zeke... AND PLANTED WITH THE URA-NAGE! Jackson roars, and throws himself on top of Kozlov... the referee counts... 1-2-3!
Winner: Ezekiel Jackson
Match Time: 8:52
Jackson’s arm goes straight up in the air, supported by the referee. William Regal looks incensed on the outside, infuriated that his Russian associate couldn’t get the job done. Kozlov rolls from the ring, clutching his damaged nose, and Regal blasts him verbally – Kozlov ignores him, more interested in his nose. Jackson smirks, knowing he’s finally got one over on Regal and Kozlov.
Saxton: Well, looks like Ezekiel Jackson finally put one of his demons to bed with that one.
Striker: He sure did, Byron. I’m still waiting for when we get to see him take on William Regal, one-on-one.
Regal stops lambasting Kozlov, and grabs a mic from ringside. Jackson’s music cuts.
Regal: Ok, that’s it – just because Vladimir can’t get the job done, doesn’t mean I can’t, Ezekiel!
Jackson glares at Regal from the ring, and the crowd boos.
Regal: So, in three and a half weeks’ time – Saturday Night’s Main Event... you, versus, me!
The crowd roars their approval, and Jackson gets passed a mic by someone at ringside.
Jackson: Ya’know, Will... I was hopin’ you ask me that... I ACCEPT!
Jackson throws his mic from the ring, and the fuming Regal smirks a little. Saxton and Striker go wild on the outside – Jackson grins inside the ring, and ECW cuts to a break.
As ECW returns, the arena turns gold, and out comes the ECW Champion, grinning.
Mayhew: Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome... the ECW Champion, Christian!
The crowd roars for Captain Charisma, who strides down the ramp, title round his waist.
Saxton: Well, before the break, we found out that it’ll be William Regal versus Ezekiel Jackson at Saturday Night’s Main Event, but we’re just about to find out what part Christian will play at that event, as well as Paul Burchill and Shelton Benjamin.
Striker: And who better to announce the match they’ll be in than the ECW Champion himself?
Christian rolls into the ring, and grabs a mic from ringside. His music fades away. He smiles, and the crowd chants his name. The ECW Champion waits a second, then speaks.
Christian: Hey to all my peeps in Omaha!
A big cheer goes up, and Christian smiles.
Christian: Ok, guys – Tiffany asked me to come out here tonight, to announce the match that Shelton Benjamin, Paul Burchill, and myself will be in at ECW Invades: Saturday Night’s Main Event in three and half weeks’ time.
Christian: Now, only 15 days after that event... is Royal Rumble.
A small cheer comes from the crowd.
Christian: At Royal Rumble, I’ll be defending this precious little guy...
Christian slaps the platinum title around his waist.
Christian: ...in a Triple Threat match. I’m gonna win it, of course, and I know that’s what all my peeps are hoping for!
Christian smiles as a big cheer goes up.
Christian: And I plan to win at Saturday Night’s Main Event, too. And if Shelton and Paul would be kind enough to join me, I can announce this match to their faces!
Christian turns towards the ramp – within moments, the stage turns bright gold:
AIN’T NO STOPPIN’ ME, NAAW!
Fireworks shoot from the stage, and Shelton Benjamin appears, smiling. The crowd cheers for the Gold Standard as he walks down the ramp, slapping the hands of the fans at ringside. Benjamin strides up the steel steps, and gets in the ring. Shelton leans against one of the turnbuckles, and collects a mic while he waits for Burchill.
The Englishman’s music starts up, and the crowd boos as Paul Burchill arrives on the scene, smirking. Katie Lea is at his side, though her mind seems elsewhere. The Ripper storms down the ramp, and gets in the ring, followed by his sister. He stares at both men, then collects a mic from ringside. He takes his place at one side of the ring, creating a triangle between the three men who will compete at Royal Rumble. Burchill is the first to speak after his music dies down.
Burchill: So... you gonna tell us what we’re gonna be doing or what?
Christian rolls his eyes at Burchill’s impatience.
Christian: Ok, guys. I’ll put you out of your misery.
Christian pauses for a moment to make sure both Burchill and Benjamin are watching him.
Christian: At ECW Invades: Saturday Night’s Main Event, there’s gonna be Triple Threat, Tag Team match – you, versus you, versus me...
Christian points to each of his opponents, then himself.
Christian: But! Each of us, will have a partner. Who can be anybody of our choosing! Anybody at all!
The crowd cheers the announcement, and Benjamin and Burchill look intrigued. Burchill is the first to speak.
Burchill: Wait a second... so only 15 days before our ECW Championship match, you guys are gonna get in the ring with me? What are you, stupid?
Christian and Shelton frown.
Burchill: Cause... let’s face it. You both know, that I have the skill to flatten you guys, right?
The crowd boos.
Burchill: And letting me have a partner of my choice?
Burchill chuckles evilly.
Burchill: We’re gonna tear you two and your pathetic little partners to shreds in front of the world!
The boos continue.
Burchill: You guys won’t even make it to Royal Rumble...
Burchill chuckles again and drops the mic away from his mouth as the crowd continues to boo Burchill heavily. Shelton pipes up...
Benjamin: Well, I guess we’ll find out... but I’m not living in the future, Paul. I’m living right here, right now.
The crowd cheers. Benjamin is looking straight at Burchill, but he looks over at Christian, too.
Benjamin: Now you listen to me, Burchill. You attacked me last week. And then you mocked me this week.
Benjamin: But believe you me, I’m not gonna stand around and take it. And I don’t intend to wait until Saturday Night’s Main Event before I get my revenge.
A big cheer goes up and Burchill scoffs.
Burchill: Are you serious? You want to live in the present, Shelton? I could floor you in this very ring at this very moment, in front of all of your pathetic fans – is that what you want, Shelton? Is it?
Burchill: I’ll do it. Oh yeah, I’ll do it. Just like last week, when I destroyed you after you couldn’t even beat that joke, Zack Ryder.
Shelton frowns – it was a disqualification, after all.
Burchill: Face it, I’m the best on this brand. I’m the most talented, the most skilled... the most powerful. Isn’t that right, Katie?
Burchill doesn’t even look at Katie Lea as he holds out his mic. Katie Lea, however, is in a different world, not paying attention. Paul looks over at her after he gets no response-
Katie looks straight back at him, suddenly aware of where she is.
Katie Lea: Sorry, sorry... yes, yes, you’re the best.
She regains her composure.
Katie Lea: Uh... My fabulous brother will be winning the ECW Title at Royal Rumble, no matter what happens in three and a half weeks’ time. So I’d listen to him... because you’ll be wishing you had when you’re lying on your backs...
Yes, everyone should listen to him, Katie. Oh, the irony. The crowd boos, and Christian smirks, looking at her. Captain Charisma raises his mic, and walks further into the fray, having been resting against the turnbuckle since his announcement.
Christian: All right, all right... Burchill, I’ve had enough of you. Shelton and I have both had our fair share of you blindsiding us – if he’s not sick of it, I sure am.
The crowd cheers, and Christian waits for a second, thinking – suddenly, he looks like he has an idea.
Christian: In fact... why wait for three weeks’ time, huh?
Christian drops the mic – but Shelton Benjamin is way ahead of him, charging across the ring – and looking for Paydirt on Burchill... but the Ripper flings the Gold Standard over the top rope mid-move, and sends him hurtling to the outside! Burchill snarls with pleasure, and then turns round... into a boot to the gut from Captain Charisma – and the crowd roars as the ECW Champion hooks the arms... AND DRIVES PAUL BURCHILL INTO THE MAT WITH THE KILLSWITCH!
The crowd goes wild, and Christian stands tall, looking pretty damn pleased with himself! Katie Lea stands by her brother, looking distressed – and then she gets up in the face of Christian! The crowd is going nuts with all sorts of noise, heat and pops alike, and Christian looks bemused – Katie Lea starts yelling straight to the ECW Champion’s face, and the crowd screams for Christian to clock her one... and Christian starts arguing back, yelling incomprehensible nonsense straight back at her! With no mics, no-one can make out what they’re saying above the noise, but they’re clearly not happy – AND KATIE LEA PUSHES CHRISTIAN! The ECW Champion barely takes a step back under the force, but he’s nevertheless insulted, taking a step forward, and getting right in Katie Lea’s face... and the English Diva turns around, and hastily leaves the ring, joining her brother, who’d rolled from the ring. Christian watches her leave and check on her brother with an angry expression.
Saxton: Well, what a show we’ve had tonight! I didn’t even expect to be here calling the action, but my, my, am I glad I am!
Striker: No doubt about it, it’s been a heated edition of ECW, Byron!
Saxton: Well, that’s all the time we have! From me, Byron Saxton, and your teacher, Matt Striker, we wish you all a good night! We’ll see you next week, on ECW on SyFy!
ECW fades away, with Christian looking at the Burchills being the last thing we see.

Re: Melvisboy's WWE: The Comeback
Opening promo: I'm glad you reminded us as readers what happen to Dreamer because I completly forgot. Anyway the back and forth between Dreamer and Ryder was awesome. I love the intensity out of Ryder, and I am really looking foward to the match at SNME... which btw I love the idea behind SNME. Its a good start so far man.
Big Daddy V Terror: Obivous squash match but attack Matthews ever was quite interesting. I was a bit surprised but at the same time I thought it was a good idea. Washington is a great manger for V, however I really don't want him to become GM. Anyway is Striker, doing the whole broadcast on his own?
Yoshi v. Manu: Well first good idea getting Saxton in there. Good combo to me. Now this is the fued I least like for some reason. You have wrote it well, so I'm not knocking your skills. I think I just base it to much on real life and how I hate three out of the four guys. Anyway Rhino seemed to be a bit angry, maybe seperate these two soon, or it can just be the fact that Helms and Yoshi will be gunning him for the rumble.
Burchill promo: Well it was interesting because you added another element to this promo with Katie Lea not being there for a second. Maybe a secret love affair with Benjamin or Christian possibly I don't know. I love Burchill calling Omaha a craphole.
Jackson v. Kozlov: I was pretty interested that Jackson worked on the nose of Kozlov. I know Kozlov has a big nose maybe that is why you chose it but I really can't picture a impaler DDT targeting the nose, only possible bad thing about the match. The Regal challenge was good, but now we have to wait three weeks for that. I think that is way to long if anything I would of maybe announced it at a later time on a ECW.
Promo: Interesting concept with the triple threat tag match. I might of stressed out a bit further when you said anyone can it be from a different brand and such, or not. Thats the thing I don't know or is it limited to ECW, since it is an ECW event. Anyway once again Katie is caught off guard so I have no idea what that was about. Christian standing tall at the end was good and makes him look strong. My only problem with this is its like two triple threa title matches in 2 weeks, but that is why you probably added the element of tag partners.
Overall it was a spectacular event. Dreamer v. Ryder should have some good hype. Anyway the only feud I'm not liking is Tatsu/Helms v. Manu/Rhyno however you have booked it very well. Anyway SD! then Armageddon preview..... I can't wait.
THANKS TO CHAMPVIADQ/FOURTHWALL/ABROWN0718 FOR THE BANNERS

Re: Melvisboy's WWE: The Comeback
* Nice little opening match, that clearly sets up the heels for the title match at Armageddon. Hopefully Legacy get the win here, the title's dont really do anything for the other make-shift teams.
* Chris Masters/Maryse angle could go well with a top face... an interesting love triangle for say WM?
* Like the Noble push, and that its realistic i.e. him beating a jobber rather than another mid-carder
* Not a big fan of Bourne that probably explains why I'm not convinced of him beating Masters
* Sheamus v Noble, should be interesting
* Like the Guerrero/McMahon dialogue, hopefully Guerrero wins the battle royal
* Nice promo's for Cena and Kingston both further setting up and putting over their respective PPV matches
* Not a big fan of women's wrestling but one decent match putting over Maryse is better than having 6-8-10-12 person tags they do in real life. Much rather see Maryse be the champion at the end of Armageddon
* I like how you really show the pecking order in the mid-card. The Miz > Carlito > Other people in battle royal, wise booking
* I'll be honest I hate the main event. Letting a majority of your faces hit their finishes and establish dominance, I wouldn't bother ordering the PPV. Chaos, brawing etc. really set the scene for a PPV, rather than the generic faces celebrate in the ring. Also I don't like the big tag team matches, it makes no sense putting all 3 feuds into one match imo. Maybe because I hate the match type or the outcome, but I think it weakens what was a great last Raw before a pay per view.
* Now I understand with the SNME where all these feuds are going, I quite like the idea. Its very original and would defintely be a huge talking point due to the great build so far.
* Dreamer promo is just epic. Clearly gives us a reason why we are cheering him and the emotions and passion gets the fans behind him. Also putting his career on the line, is a classy way to make this match a 'must-watch', at the same time putting Ryder over. Really top stuff here.
* Washington invading ECW? Brilliant idea with his henchman Big Daddy V doing the dirty-work, classical villian stuff. Taking out Josh Matthews thank god! Please get rid off, the blonde bimbo!
* I'll be honest I don't really care much for Yoshi or Manu, they do nothing for me. You need to find a way for Yoshi to get over, rather than "kick-out of nowhere upset win". He could be a great comedy act, get him a translator or something. Manu just looks overall weak... very weak. Rhyno should be doing more! He should be main-eventing, not in the mid-card.
* What's up with Katie-Lea im very interested. Will she cost her brother the title?
* The Roundtable breakdown has been done good, I think Jackson needs to find a way off ECW regardless of him winning or losing against Regal. He's not going anywhere fact, unless his involved with Katie-Lea. Solid Regal promo as usual, nice build for their match
* Good ending between the 3 of them, with good dialogue and action at the end. You would think Birchill would make the first move, instead of being jumped but good ending with the champ left standing tall.
Overall 5 solid angles in just an hour. Your ECW thus far is much better than Raw. Overall good solid writing, keep it up!

Re: Melvisboy's WWE: The Comeback
Thanks for the feedback, you two. Appreciated. There isn't much really to go through, so, frankly, I won't.
Here's a jolly Christmas SmackDown.
Feedback is welcome if you feel like it. The Armageddon preview is done, as is the predictions contest, which I'll post tomorrow, or essentially, ASAP. Enjoy SD.
Friday Night SmackDown
Omaha Civic Auditorium, Omaha, Nebraska
25th December 2009
The Brian Kendrick bts. Finlay
Mickie James bts. Layla
Super Crazy bts. Eric Escobar
David Hart Smith bts. Shad
John Morrison bts. CM Punk
It was to be a big Christmas night on Friday Night SmackDown – five blockbuster singles matches, including a Royal Rumble Qualifier and an Intercontinental Championship bout, all capped off with a massive announcement from World Heavyweight Champion, the Big Show, to finish a big evening on Christmas Day.
To open the show, The Brian Kendrick took on Finlay. The brash youngster found that the third time was the charm, having twice lost previously to the Fighting Irishman in singles competition. This week, however, Kendrick finally lived up to his word that his youth would triumph over Finlay’s experience, hitting Finlay with The Kendrick not once, but twice to secure a pivotal victory for The Brian Kendrick, who was inevitably pleased with his win.
CM Punk was backstage – he was interviewed by Eve Torres. Punk was ultra-confident he could win the Intercontinental Championship – after all, he’d done it before. He lambasted his opponent, John Morrison, as well as the fans in Omaha, about their ‘weakness’, and how none of them were Straight-edge like him, thus making him better than them. The Straight-edge Superstar, smirking, said he would go on to become a two-time Straight-edge Intercontinental Champion with a win later in the evening.
After Michelle McCool defeated Maria last week, Mickie James set out to defeat McCool’s best friend this week, in Layla El. Mickie made quick work of the English Diva, finishing her with the Mickie-DT – afterwards, however, the inevitable happened. The Women’s Champion herself, Michelle McCool, made an appearance, dropping poor Mickie with the Wings of Love to send a stark Christmas message to her Royal Rumble opponent.
The Insane Luchador, Super Crazy, booked his place in the Royal Rumble match with a classy win over Eric Escobar. After a variety of high-flying moves to get the crowd firmly behind him, Crazy finished the match with the Trifecta – three Moonsaults, one from the bottom turnbuckle, one from the middle, and one from the top. After the match, Dolph Ziggler appeared, blindsiding the Insane Luchador with a steel chair. Matt Hardy rushed down the ramp, attempting to stop any assault before it could happen, but Ziggler saw him, and flattened him with a nasty chair shot too. Ziggler then hit both Crazy and Hardy with the chair over and over – Eric Escobar got in the ring, smirking, and offered his hand to Ziggler, but the youngster was in no mood for alliances, cracking the Puerto Rican with the chair for his troubles. As Escobar rolled from the ring, Ziggler continued his assault on Matt Hardy and Super Crazy, only stopping to take a mic from ringside, and roar that he wanted a spot in the Royal Rumble, or else. Teddy Long arrived on the scene, telling Ziggler to calm down – the youngster had a crazed look in his eye – and told him that next week, he’d give him one last chance at getting into the Royal Rumble match, and if he lost, that was it, he would get no more chances. Later in the show, the commentators revealed that Ziggler’s opponent was to be R-Truth.
Chris Jericho, never one to pass up on the opportunity to talk, was more than happy to be interviewed by Eve backstage – he said that he’d beaten Mark Henry on Monday Night Raw, and that in just two days’ time, he’d be defending the WWE Unified Tag Team Titles whether Big Show was at his side or not. He also claimed that no matter what the World’s Largest Athlete declared as the stipulation for the World Title match at Royal Rumble, be it a Tables match, a Ladder match, a Steel Cage match, a Falls Count Anywhere match... no matter what it was, Jericho would be winning the World Heavyweight Championship, because he is the best in the world at what he does. Rey Mysterio interrupted, as with last week, saying that Jericho was far too full of himself, and that would be his downfall... if the Undertaker didn’t cause it first. Jericho, while frightened at first, hardened, and told Mysterio again, that he’d beaten down the Deadman so badly, he’d never return to the WWE. Mysterio said he looked forward to beating some humility into Jericho, come the Rumble.
With Tyson Kidd and Natalya in his corner, David Hart Smith defeated Shad, who was accompanied by JTG and Eve Torres. The match, taking place after the break, was filled with powerful moves from both big men, but the end came from a submission, when Smith locked in a dastardly Crossface manoeuvre, which JR and Todd Grisham told us was named the Hart Bypass. Shad didn’t last long, as Smith applied the hold expertly, using all his strength to put Shad in no position to continue, leading to the eventual tap-out. Between Tyson Kidd’s Prince’s Crown, and Smith’s Hart Bypass, the Hart Dynasty are firmly showing the world that the Sharpshooter is not the only deadly submission move in their arsenal. Though submissions don’t count in the Royal Rumble, you can be sure they will a great asset to have if needed in that 30-Man match.
Theodore Long announced another Royal Rumble Qualifier for next week – it was to be the unlikely tandem of Drew McIntyre and Mike Knox against Shannon Moore and Jimmy Wang Yang. Whichever team loses, will get no further shots at making it to the Rumble, claimed Long.
In the Christmas Day Main Event, John Morrison and CM Punk fought for 14 minutes in a highly athletic match – Punk had kicked out of a Moonlight Drive, and Morrison had found the ropes whilst enduring an Anaconda Vise. The end finally came as Punk lined up the GTS – Morrison broke free, pulling Punk down with a Hurricanrana. He then charged for the corner, and stunned the Straight-edge Superstar with the Starship Pain before he could react, before hooking the leg, getting the three, and retaining his Intercontinental Championship.
After the break, World Heavyweight Champion Big Show arrived in the ring. He said that in two days’ time, he would be in Denver, Colorado, to defend his Unified Tag Team Titles alongside Chris Jericho, but he didn’t plan on exactly trying hard to help Jericho retain, and that it was a possibility his hand might slip, and knock Jericho out. He went on to say that the titles meant nothing to him anymore, and he’d rather lose them than have to team with Jericho anymore. He said at Armageddon, he’d have the same mindset as the other teams – to flatten Jericho. Moving on to a different subject, Show decided it was time to announce the type of match it would be at Royal Rumble, in that Fatal Four-Way match for the World Title. Seeing as the event was going to be in New York, Show felt like getting some fresh air... As the fans slowly cottoned on to what the big man was saying, a roar built up, and the crowd was cheering wildly as the World’s Largest Athlete announced that, at Royal Rumble, the four men wouldn’t be fighting in the Madison Square Garden ring... they’d be fighting in New York City! Big Show called it an NYC Brawl – four men, battling in the streets of New York. No disqualifications, no countouts, just fighting in the streets, using whatever they find to try and win the World Heavyweight Championship! Show said that absolutely anything is legal on January 31st, and that his opponents would be treated to a big, big show in NYC. SmackDown ended with Show raising his World Title in the air, and shots of each of his opponents backstage, watching, and looking shocked by the announcement.
