Re: WWE: A New Era Beckons
Eric Bischoff announces that Cena and Orton have picked the opponents for each other. The matches are as follows: John Cena vs The Undertaker, Randy Orton vs Cody Rhodes
1. Its Regal vs RVD for the second consecutive week. RVD won the match last week.
William Regal def. Rob Van Dam via quick cover at 9:13.
Eric Bischoff made the third and decisive instalment of this match for Backlash.
2. Pick Your Poison match:
When Taker pushed Cena into the ringpost, Cena landed on the referee who got knocked down. Jericho came down to the ring, before he could enter the ring, Taker gets him by his neck for a chokeslam, but Jericho punches Taker in the face with brass knuckles, Cena goes for the F-U and pins him. After the match, Taker stares at Jericho as he retreats towards the backstage.
John Cena def. The Undertaker via pinfall at 13:27
3. Del Rio comes out for his match with Triple-H.
Alberto Del Rio def. Triple-H via DQ at 2:11 when Vladimir Kozlov came and hit Del Rio with a clothesline.
JR said, “Well that clothesline looked completely fake”. Triple-H was puzzled when suddenly Kozlov attacked him. Del Rio and Kozlov over-powered HHH and Del Rio brought a steel chair to hit HHH. By the end, The Game was left bleeding and battered, and Del Rio announced that Kozlov is his bodyguard from now and his gameplan became evident. The audience booed loud and the medics came to escort Triple-H.
4. Josh Matthews interviews both Orton and Rhodes and asks about Cena beating Taker, Orton laughs and says he was lucky that Jericho intervened, but it doesn’t matter to him because he will still have the upper hand as Cena has made a big foolish decision by choosing Cody as his opponent. He looks towards Cody and they both smile.
5. US Title match: (Drew McIntyre vs R-Truth)
Drew McIntyre def. R-Truth via pinfall at 11:02 to retain the US Championship.
6. Backstage, Miz and Morrison fight over their loss in the No.1 contender match last week. Morrison blames Miz and says that his selfish nature cost him the match. Bischoff intervenes and says that they both will settle the score in the ring next week.
7. Santino Marella meets Ryder, Helms, Funaki and some FCW wrestlers backstage. He asks them to see how he will decimate his opponent and learn from the master itself. All of them wish him luck. The opponent turns out to be Sheamus.
As soon as the bell rings, Santino asks the referee to hold the match and asks for the mic and says, “This match is a tribute to all my disciples back there”. As soon as he puts the mic down, Sheamus lands a big boot kick on his face.
Sheamus def. Santino Marella via pinfall at 0:14
8. Main event: (Orton faces Rhodes in Pick Your Poison match)
Orton and Rhodes are in the ring for the match. John Cena comes out with a mic and addresses the audience, “Everybody was saying how big a fool I am to make this match, well Randy chooses the Deadman, and who do I choose.... meh. I tried to rectify my mistake, I met Bischoff back there to make this a Title match (Orton looks shocked here), but he denied the request. Anyways, I am really sorry for this poor main event, I know Rhodes will just lie down and the match will get over. But, I am sorry to one more guy whom I specially invited to see this match.” Dusty Rhodes comes out to a huge pop from the audience. Cody looks shocked and begins talking to Randy. Needless to say, Cody puts his whole effort into the match and gets a few face pops too. But Orton finally over-powered him and won the match.
Randy Orton def. Cody Rhodes via RKO at 13:19
JR says, “Well Randy might be in a fix here, Cody actually abided by his LEGACY by not giving the match away before his father”.
Randy walked back alone while Dustin Rhodes came and hugged his son in the ring.
