WWE Smackdown
July 1, 2004

Highlights are shown of The Great American Bash ppv.

Kane holds a eulogy for Paul Bearer and Mordecai

The Smackdown video package plays as Kaneís music hits and he comes out in a hearse. He parks it on the entrance ramp in the arena. Kane comes down to the ring and steps up to the podium and mic that is set up in the middle of the ring. Kane holds a Eulogy for Paul Bearer and Mordecai. Kane talks about having a family and at The Great American Bash, his family was taken away from him by The Undertaker. Kane starts screaming and yelling because his father and cousin are gone. People are laughing at him, people like John Cena better hope that they donít remain on the same show as him because if they still end up on the same show as him, heís going to cause more destruction than heís ever caused and it starts from tonight. Kane vows revenge because tonight it will be The Undertaker who will be the one to rest in peace and when he does rest in peace it will be for good this time. Heís going to finish off The Undertaker and then heís going to put him in that hearse and take him away for good.


Kane explains the rules of the last ride match and says he will stuff The Undertaker into that hearse and drive it out the arena back to the morgue. Kane promises to avenge his father and cousin. The gong goes off and the lights go out and then Undertaker's music hits. Undertaker shows up on the screen. Taker talks about how he has buried Paul Bearer and Mordecai and that now there is only one and that is you little brother. Since you want revenge Kane, I will give you what you want, but that Kane you will be the one to take the last ride. Kane says it won't be him that will take the Last Ride, it will be you big brother because after I beat you, I will finally rid Smackdown and the entire WWE of you. It's over Dead Man, there can only be one that's left standing and that's going to be me. Kane starts laughing and Undertaker plays his mind games on Kane by having the druids come out with an open casket. They open the casket and there is no one inside it. Undertaker says the brutality that you will suffer tonight will seal your fate. Prepare for your last ride. Kane tonight you will rest in peace. Suddenly the lights go out and the hearse has gone. More mindgames by Taker as the screen fades to black as The Undertakerís music plays. Kane is furious and Kane says he is not afraid of Taker. Kane goes crazy and destroys the casket and leaves.

Eddie Guerrero arrives into the arena and Booker T confronts him. Eddie starts smiling and mocks him for not winning the title at The Great American Bash. Booker calls Eddie an embarrassment to Smackdown because Eddie lied, stole and cheated his way to victory. Booker says tonight when he beats that sucka Kurt Angle then next week heís gonna take what belongs to him and thatís the WWE Title. Eddie holds his belt up to Bookerís face and says a lot of people tried to take this belt off him but failed and he proved to Booker that heís the better man, the better wrestler. If Booker gets past Kurt Angle tonight then heíll be waiting for him next week because heís gonna lie, cheat and steal his way to victory again orrale vato. Dawn Marie shows up and informs both men that after the US Title match, Paul Heyman wants to see all the stars in the locker room for a talent meeting.

Some of them may not be here on Smackdown in 2 weeks. Heyman says he doesnít have much time and he needs to save his job. Heís going to do whatever it takes to keep his job. As a GM his job is to deliver and we just saw a great match between Cena and RVD and thereís more to come tonight. Heís going to give big matches on Smackdown because Smackdown is better than Raw. Paul Heyman says the last time he depended on the Smackdown roster, they walked out on him, he ended up losing control of his show. He now wants the support of the roster because he now wants to make things right. Paul Heyman says heís doing the best he can for this brand and yet he gets no respect around here. Now he wants to know whoís with him and whoís against him. He wants to know who appreciates his work on Smackdown. The heels who appreciated him went on one side, while the faces who couldnít stand him stood on one side. Several heels praised him including Val Venis, Matt Hardy and JBL because Heyman gave them the opportunity to shine on Smackdown. Heyman then runs down all the faces and calls some of his former ECW guys washed up has beens, mainly targeting RVD, Rhyno, Tajiri and Spike.

Rhyno says all Heyman cares about is himself and not the brand. He was always there for Heyman but Heyman was never there for him. He hopes that Heyman gets replaced. Tajiri called Heyman a jackass which got a few laughs from the faces and Heyman was furious. Heyman booked a 6 man tag match for tonight between JBL, Hardy and Venis vs Rey Mysterio, Rhyno and Tajiri. Heyman then moves on to the divas and Torrie and Stacey hoped that Heyman gets replaced as GM. Cena then cuts in and starts dissing Heyman. Heyman says Cena already let him down at King of the Ring so he hopes that Cena doesnít embarrass him again. Paul Heyman says that those who disrespect him he hopes they get out of this show as soon as possible because he doesnít want them working for him. They can work for Bischoff on Raw. He wants stars that respect him, that value him. Tonight is the first step in the right direction for Smackdown. Paul says whether you like him or hate him, heís here to stay because heís going to pull out all stops to save his job.

Then they discuss the draft show and Bischoff agrees to the 8 man tag and says Evolution will have no problem in beating Cena and his team. Heyman says well maybe that could be the last time we ever see Evolution teaming together on Raw because some of them or infact all of them could end up on Smackdown. They argue back and forth over their match that will take place on the draft show. Bischoff says heís gonna raid Smackdownís top stars just like he did in WCW when he took ECWís stars and made them even bigger and then it will be Heyman who will lose his job because he will be left with hardly no stars. Bischoff says heís been through this job evaluation before, he knows how to survive this and will do again. Paul says when he went to Raw 2 months ago and ran the show, he made it better than Bischoff ever could. Heís a creative genius and heís extreme and heís going to kick Bischoffís ass and Bischoff fires back and says he has a black belt in Karate and Heyman is going to get hurt bad.

SmackDown! Review

Great opening to the show, it sets up your Main Event perfectly, and, I miss those days where Superstars just appeared on the Titantron to answer to their nemesis in the ring.

The opening match with RVD & Cena was good. I'm a die hard RVD fan so, even in fiction, when he loses, a small part of me dies, but, it was a good showing by Cena so, props to him for that. The 8-Men is shaping up to be something else come RAW!

The Chavo & Funaki match was a great filler, these two are so good, so, pairing them together in a 5 minute contest is worth while. Gory Bomb for the win!

I really enjoyed Angle's interview, he's kind of like a tweener, the rematch with Eddie will be tremendous.

MOTN goes to Angle & Booker. What a great back and forth contest, great wrestling maneuvers, a good portion of brawling, and a great ending.

Heyman doing the Talent Meeting with the SmackDown! roster is so circa Beyong the Mat to me. Heyman is someone that can change on a dime to survive, and I also really liked his interaction over the phone with Bischoff, but I cannot wait to see what he does on SmackDown! live and how he handles the draft, SmackDown! is a better show to me than RAW right now so, who knows...

The 6-Men was quick, fast paced, hard hitting action, we didn't get to see Rhyno that much, he certainly would have made a difference size-wise for his team, but, I really liked the ending and JBL vs Mysterio in a Steel Cage next week is going to be awesome. (ps I don't know what to make of Venis/London/Kidman/Dawn all together. Val & Dawn works for me but, I don't know, hopefully the draft doesn't split this group up and I get to see them interact with each other more)

The Main Event was good enough to close to the show. It maybe was one of the better Kane & Undertaker contests on TV ever, so kudos for that. The spot at the end was so cool with the Tombstone on top of the Hearse, and I really like the Chokselam out of nowhere on the outside.

OVERALL
I love your BTB, everything is so well done, your storylines and everything, kudos for that, and keep it up, even if you can't dish out as quickly, keep the quality your top priority.

Smackdown Review

Case of mind games to start off Smackdown with Kane holding the eulogy for Paul Bearer his father and Mordecai his cousin, and then it setting up this Last Ride Match for the main event of Smackdown but it makes me wonder who will go on to win tonight's main event and just who will take the Last Ride, I say it will be Kane who takes the Last Ride

Cena (c) vs RVD, face vs face contest for the WWE United States Championship was great, what a way to open up Smackdown with this great opening match, if anything it was a classic definite 4 1/2 stars for me and then after the match-up in just a pure show of sportsmanship Cena recruits RVD to join his team for the 8-man tag on the RAW Draft show for when Cena and his team face off against all 4 members of Evolution

Chavo (c) vs Funaki was at best a great filler match and especially with the WWE Cruiserweight Championship on the line, high-flying fast paced match-up with Chavo retaining just proves he will be Cruiserweight Champion for a long long time

Angle's backstage interview he wants in on Cena's team for the 8-man tag team match, why? But nevertheless this is going to be great and not to mention he's facing off against Eddie and if the WWE Championship will be on the line, MOTY candidate for sure, their rematch will be a classic again outdoing their Mania 20 encounter

Hands down my match of the night goes to Kurt Angle vs. Booker T. What a great back and forth contest, great wrestling maneuvers, a good portion of brawling, and a great ending.

Heyman doing the Talent Meeting was awesome

The 6-Men was quick, fast paced, hard hitting action, we didn't get to see Rhyno that much, he certainly would have made a difference size-wise for his team, but, I really liked the ending and JBL vs Mysterio in a Steel Cage next week is going to be awesome. I don't know what to make of Venis/London/Kidman/Dawn all together. Val & Dawn works for me also but, I don't know, hopefully the draft doesn't split this group up and I get to see them interact with each other more

Undertaker vs Kane main event to close out the show was great, especially the spot at the end which was so cool with the Tombstone on top of the Hearse, and I really like the Chokselam out of nowhere on the outside

Now that Undertaker is back, and he is back to his old self, makes me wonder if he will be on Cena's team when they face Evolution

I would really love to see Undertaker on Cena's team, now that would be something

Default Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

Ive been following this thread for a while and really getting into it. Especially SD!
I really liked the Kane/Mordecai/Taker angle, however I guess Moredecai has played his part so he won't be around anymore, but I think a release was a bit too soon. You should repackae him imo. Not sure why you would give away a Last Ride free on TV. Im guessing you want to finish the feud asap. You have really built Taker up. I am looking forward to what happens with Kane next.

RVD and Cena is a good set of workers to put together. I am unsure about how well RVD looked after asking Cena to be on his team. It made RVD look very weak. The promo after in the locker room was interesting but Tajiri saying "Jackass" seemed a bit strange.

There is not much to say about the CW division. Maybe you need to build it up, bring in some fresh faces.

Angle as a face or heel is great. He really was one of the best ever during this time period. After his match we see another handshake. That is 2 in one night. I hope this doesn't become a regular occurance.

In relation to the six man tag, I really liked how the heels got a strong win. The art of haivng bad guys win is lost by most people, as if they are afraid to do it. Ive gotta say that having Val and Matt Hardy in that match was great as I see that both of these are rising stars.

I already mentioned the main event earlier, but the Heyman segment after was good. I think that next weeks show (now its live) is more like a 2 hour ppv. We have a cage match and a wwe title match. Im not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Im definately going to read, but maybe you should have saved it for the PPV.

Winnipegís own Chris Jericho opens Raw

The Raw video package opens as the announcers welcome us to the show. Chris Jerichoís music hits as hometown hero Winnipegís own Chris Jericho comes down to a great ovation. Jericho gets a mic and says itís great to be back in his home town. We are just 6 days away from Vengeance and in 6 days two of Canadaís finest athletes go at it for the world heavyweight title. He calls out Chris Benoit to come down. The world champion Chris Benoit comes out to a great ovation. They shake hands. Jericho talks about the problems they were having last week and hoped that at Vengeance this does not become a problem for them when they defend their tag titles. He wants to make history at Vengeance and doesnít want to be let down by Benoit so he hopes Benoit lives up to his end of the bargain. Benoit tells Jericho that he is indeed a team player and if Jericho thinks that all he cares is about the world heavyweight title then he is wrong, he also cares about the tag team titles. He is holding two titles and he is proud to be a tag team champion with Jericho, he will give it his 100% at Vengeance just like he always does. Benoit promotes his dvd as we see footage of his upcoming dvd on the screen. Jericho says itís good that Chris is not releasing his dvd after Vengeance because he wouldnít want to include his title defeat at Vengeance. Benoit laughs it off and tells Jericho that since Jericho became champion before him, heís yet to see a dvd of Jericho. Benoit gets personal and says while I was winning a title at WrestleMania, all you cared was being blind in love and you got hurt. Benoit gets booed for mentioning this. I cared about wrestling but you cared about Trish but look what that got you Chris. Jericho gets pissed off and says I see what youíre trying to do Benoit but that will not make me lose focus. Iíve put my problems behind me and now my #1 goal is to become the world heavyweight champion this Sunday.

Jericho says how about we ask all these Jerichoholics who they want to see win the world title this Sunday? The crowd is slightly more pro Jericho since itís in his hometown. Eric Bischoff and Coach come out on the stage. Bischoff says itís great to be back in charge. Bischoff says the draft next week will change many careers but will also change the face of both Raw and Smackdown. Heís going to do things on Raw that have never been done or seen before and starting with tonight for the first time ever weíre having a commercial free Raw. Bischoff says last week Eugene made a mockery out of his show when he ran Raw but now the power is back in his hands. Bischoff says next week heís going to humiliate Paul Heyman when he not only defeats him in a match, heís going to take away his top stars. He looks at Benoit and Jericho and says one of you will be champion going into next Monday Night and it could be possible that Raw may not even have a champion if one of you gets drafted to Smackdown. Last week Benoit and Jericho laughed at him last week but now the time for laughing is over. He hopes that Jericho gets humiliated in his hometown later on tonight but right now he wants Jericho to get out the ring because Benoit you will be having your match with Batista right now. Bischoff and Coach leave as Batista comes down as Jericho stares down Jericho on the ramp. Bischoff and Coach leave as Jericho goes over to join the announcers for commentary.

Non Title Match
Chris Benoit vs Batista

Batista then flexes his muscles and poses. Batista then whips Benoit off the ropes, baseball slide by Benoit and Benoit kicks Batista to the gut and delivers a snap suplex. He goes for a cover and Batista powers out at 2. Benoit delivers some knife edge chops across the chest of Batista knocking him down. Jericho mentions that heís been in the ring with Batista before, he beat Orton before and he beat Flair in the fastest team in the beat the clock challenge to get his title shot. Jericho says tonight in his hometown heís going to beat HHH. Benoit brings Batista back up to his feet and sends him into the corner but runs into a big boot by Batista. Clothesline by Batista and Benoit kicks out at 2. Backbreaker and Batista gets another near fall. He then whips Benoit into the corner turnbuckle with velocity that Benoit bounces off the turnbuckle. Batista goes for the spinebuster but Benoit counters the spinebuster attempt in mid-air by nailing Batista with a tornado DDT to pin Batista for a 2 count only. Jerry Lawler starts stirring up trouble by asking Jericho, does it bother him that he hasnít been champion for more than 2 years and now one of his best friends Chris Benoit is champion. Jericho says of course it bothers him that he hasnít been champion for years but he is happy for Benoitís success. Benoit then begins to lock in a Sleeper Hold to ground Batista but Batista fights his way out of it by elbowing Benoit over and over again. Then both men are back on their feet fighting it out exchanging rights and lefts until Batista whips Benoit off the ropes and delivers a powerslam and Benoit kicks out at 2. Batista then lifts Benoit up on his shoulders and this time locks in a torture rack submission hold. Will Benoit tap.

Jericho looking on intently along with the fans as they are trying to will Benoit back into this. Benoit looks like he is going to tap out but Benoit fights out of it. He falls back on to his feet countering the Torture Rack into an arm drag which sends Batista reeling as he falls down to the canvas hard which sends Batista on to the outside of the ring. The ref starts to begin his count and Batista gets back in at 5 and when Benoit tries to run off the ropes bouncing off of them, Batista bounces off the ropes and he Spears Benoit to pin him 1Ö2.. and Benoit just kicked out.

Batista nails Benoit with a clubbing blow to the back of the head. Batista is frustrated and angry and goes outside to grab Benoitís world title belt. Jericho gets out of his commentary seat and goes to the ring and Batista sees him coming as they exchange words and from behind Benoit hits a german suplex on Batista. Benoit then yells at Jericho whoís outside the ring, telling him he can win this match on his own and doesn't need his help. Jericho tries to explain himself and then Benoit turns around, Batista is back up and he kicks Benoit in the gut and then sets up for the Batista Bomb as Jericho watches from the outside. Batista has Benoit in position for the Batista Bomb. Benoit is up in the air and Benoit in mid-air counters the Batista attempt and locks in the Crippler Crossface from out of nowhere. Benoit has it locked in, Batista taps out and the match is over while Jericho looks on. Jericho starts clapping outside the ring. After the match they exchange glances, and now are having a few words while they leave together.
Winner: Chris Benoit


Backstage Eric Bischoff berates William Regal and Eugene and asks them how does it feel to be working under Eric Bischoff again. They tried to embarrass him last week. Now that heís back in charge they better hope they get drafted to Smackdown because if they remain on Raw heís going to make their lives miserable because he hasnít forgotten what he had to go through last week. He tells Regal that his match with HHH at Vengeance will be a No Disqualification Match. Regal says thatís exactly what he wanted. He reminds Bischoff that his job is on the line and if he doesnít treat his stars fairly then that could go against him. Bischoff says he isnít going to be intimidated. He knows what to do to make Raw more successful than Smackdown. Eugene says he only wanted to have fun with his Uncle, he thought Eric enjoyed singing, Eugene says he made Bischoff proud last week. Eric tells Eugene that wasnít funny at all but he has an idea. He reminds Eugene how Matt Hardy turned down the opportunity to take Eugene under his wing and for that Hardy suffered a beating at the hands of Batista. Then he traded Hardy to Smackdown. Bischoff says next week on the draft show, he wants Eugene to take on Matt Hardy in a match. He wants Eugene to humiliate him. Regal tells Eric that Eugene will be ready because heís taught Eugene how to wrestle and now Eugene has the qualities of a great wrestler. That is something Matt Hardy would never be able to do. Bischoff says Eugene better not let him down. Regal and Eugene leave as their match is next.

Backstage Eric Bischoff tells Coach that Trish is not here tonight but she will be back next week. Coach says thatís great but itís a damn shame that she was humiliated last week.Coach is worried that he could get drafted to Smackdown, he doesnít want to work for Paul Heyman. Teddy Long shows up and tells Eric Bischoff that in January, Bischoff let him run Raw for one night only and he did a much better job than Eugene. Eric says thatís right. Now during the past couple of months heís not been utilised well on Raw, heís been disrespected by a lot of superstars who have turned down his managerial services. Now if he remains on Raw he wants Bischoff to give him more opportunities here. Heís heard a lot about Smackdown being the land of opportunity and maybe over there he could get his opportunity. Bischoff gets annoyed by Longís comments and tells Teddy to stop complaining. The reason why no one wants Long to manage them is because they feel Long does not have what it takes to take them to the top. He disrespects Long and tells him to get the hell out of his office. Long says thatís fine playa, one day you will value what you lost.

Victoria comes out on the stage and holds up her title as Jazz taunts her that this Sunday sheís going to end Victoriaís reign.
Winner: Jazz

Main Event
Chris Jericho vs HHH

Before the match gets underway, Chris Benoit's music hits. Benoit this time comes out for commentary and JR & King are wondering why Benoit is out here on commentary. They are wondering if this is Chris Benoit's way of trying to one-up Chris Jericho, to try to return the favour from earlier on tonight. Benoit tells them that he is here to watch his friend and tag team partner compete and also to scout Jericho in terms of looking for ways to beat Jericho at Vengeance this Sunday during their World Title match. Heís also he is here to watch Chris Jericho's back. Then HHH's music hits and he comes out to heavy boos and does his usual entrance. He sees Benoit on commentary and he is seething because Benoit still has the one thing HHH wants but can never have back again as long as Benoit is champion. Jericho comes out to a deafening ovation yet again and he does his entrance. Jericho then sees his tag team partner and friend and the man who he will face this Sunday at Vengeance for the World Heavyweight Championship, Chris Benoit on commentary. Jericho then asks Benoit what he's doing here. Benoit then says he is out here to watch Jericho's back, and then the match is going to get started as it finally gets underway.

He then whips Jericho into the corner turnbuckle. HHH goes over to Jericho and then climbs on top of him mounted on top of him and begins to punch Jericho over and over again until the count of 10. Then when HHH is trying to get a reaction of the crowd, Jericho counters by dropping HHH down with an atomic Drop which sends HHH down on to the canvas. Jericho then sees this as his opportunity and springboards off the ropes for the Lionsault but HHH sensing what was coming moves out of the way at the last second and Jericho lands on his feet. HHH then hits a big clothesline on Jericho. HHH sees Benoit on commentary and yells at him that the World Heavyweight Championship is mine and that it is only a matter of time before he wins it back. Benoit then gets up from his seat and stands and then holds the World Heavyweight Championship to HHH's face which gets HHH even more mad. He then tells HHH to turn around and when HHH does turn around, Jericho is back up and hits a running insiguri on HHH and covers him and HHH kicks out at 2. They end up brawling outside the ring and Jericho throws HHH back in and Jericho whips HHH into the corner and runs into a boot by the game. HHH then takes control assaulting Jericho in the corner, he begins to wear down Jericho. He whips Jericho off the ropes and nails him with a high knee to the face and Jericho kicks out at 2. HHH sets up for the pedigree but Jericho counters into a backdrop.

Jericho goes for the Walls of Jericho and has it locked in but HHH is near the ropes and makes the ropes but Jericho still has the hold locked in. He has until the count of 5 to break it and he breaks it up at 3. Regal is watching the match on a monitor with Eugene and they enjoy what they see. Jericho clotheslines HHH over the top rope but HHH hangs on the apron. Jericho runs off the ropes and springboards off the ropes to hit a triangle dropkick sending HHH flying off the apron and to the outside of the ring. The ref starts counting and HHH makes it back at 8. Jericho then sees HHH coming and tries to run off the ropes bouncing off of them and when he is coming in, HHH catches him coming in with a spinebuster with such velocity from out of nowhere to pin Jericho for a 2 count only. HHH gets Jericho back on to his feet and instead of going for the Pedigree he whips Jericho into the referee who was on the opposite side of the ring near the corner turnbuckle with Jericho and the referee knocking heads as they both fall to the canvas. Triple H then sees this as his opportunity and he goes out on to the outside to get a steel chair and HHH comes back into the ring. Benoit gets out from where his commentary seat is and rushes out of there and gets back into the ring to stop HHH from using the chair on Jericho. Jericho is now getting back up from that spill he just took with the referee in bumping heads and HHH & Benoit are having a tug of war over the chair. Benoit grabs the chair away from HHH but accidentally in the process hits Jericho directly in the face with the chair. Benoit then proceeds to check on Jericho but out of nowhere HHH grabs Benoit and throws him out of the ring whipping him out and over the ropes and to the outside.

HHH then revives the referee and is going for the pin. The ref makes the pin as HHH is going for the pin 1Ö2Ö. 2 1/2 Jericho just gets the shoulder up. HHH is fuming now as he can't believe that Jericho kicks out yet again. HHH begins to go over to the turnbuckle exposing the turnbuckle with the referee's view being obstructed of course. HHH is walking over to Jericho. He begins to try to slingshot Jericho into the exposed turnbuckle just as Benoit is getting up on that side. Jericho ends up reversing the slingshot attempt and slingshots HHH on to Benoit who is on the apron and HHH's head bounces off the exposed turnbuckle in the process which staggers HHH. It knocks Benoit back down on to the outside with HHH staggering and he turns around and Jericho out of nowhere hits the Codebreaker to pin HHH 1...2...3. The match is over and Jericho celebrates his victory and HHH then rolls out of the ring getting the hell out of here. Benoit is now getting back to his feet and when he does Benoit and Jericho are starting to get angry with one another and begin to argue with each other in the center of the ring. It's getting really heated now as they are in each other's face nose to nose and then they begin to shove each other and then now these 2 men are going at it as they are coming to blows exchanging rights and lefts with each other until Eugene and Regal start to run out. They get in the ring and separate both men.
They break them apart but then get both men to shake hands and they do, with them apologizing to each other.
Winner: Chris Jericho


In the parking lot, Evolution calm HHH down so he can clear his mind. Flair tells HHH it will all be fine at Vengeance when Evolution be victorious. Flair tells Batista to go out and party with HHH and they will join them later. Evolution members high five each other as HHH gets into his limo with Batista and drives off.

The announcers run down the card for Vengeance as this Sunday Chris Benoit and Chris Jericho will be pulling double duty. Not only will they defend their tag team titles, they will later on go on to face each other for the world heavyweight title. Plus next week itís the draft lottery. Jerry Lawler is concerned that he could get drafted to Smackdown.

Randy Ortonís THIS IS YOUR LIFE SEGMENT.

There are balloons and confetti seems to be flying down from the rafters all over the arena as music begins to play all around. Ric Flair's music hits and the crowd in an absolute sign of respect cheer Flair with another part of the crowd booing Flair heavily as he does a Woo and the crowd Woos with him as he gets into the ring and then begins to get on the mic as he tries to talk he gets booed but also there's a Woo chant and Flair tells the crowd to shut up which then gets the crowd to turn on Flair fast. The reason why he is out here right now is because heís going to do ďOrton this is your life.Ē He introduces Randy as the 2004 King of the Ring and the man who will become the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in history when he wins the title at SummerSlam. Randy Orton then comes out to heavy boos as he does his usual Legend Killer stance and his entrance as he comes down to the ring and is now in the ring with Flair. Ric Flair then says Randy this is your life. Then the It's Your Life music plays and Flair says to roll the footage. We get a video package of Orton from childhood to his quick rise in the WWE. It shows Orton joining Evolution, Orton winning the Intercontinental Title, Orton killing legends including his win over Mick Foley and most recently Orton becoming King of the Ring. Orton is smiling almost laughing telling Ric that he didn't have to go all out like this but Flair says he had to because he knows that if there is anyone who needs an "It's Your Life" segment it's you Randy because you are so much better than The Rock and your life is so much more interesting than that Hollywood piece of trash, that wannabe actor The Rock.

Orton then begins to talk about his accomplishments in the fact that he has killed so many legends. The most notable being one of The Rock's best friends in Mick Foley, he ended Mick Foley's career inside of Foley's own environment inside Hell In A Cell to retain his WWE Intercontinental Championship. He's the youngest Intercontinental Champion in WWE history breaking The Rock's record which just proves that he is better than The Rock ever was. Now he is going to prove that at Vengeance Rock is not in his league and that Orton is the best 3rd generation superstar to brace a WWE ring and not The Rock. Orton then brags about how he has also done something The Rock has never done in his career and that is win the King of the Ring and Orton did that and that at SummerSlam Orton then says it doesn't matter if it's Benoit or if it's Jericho, doesn't matter because you are looking at the next World Heavyweight Champion, King Randy Orton Legend Killer. Flair then gets on the mic and then says all that aside Randy now are you ready to begin the journey that is your life? Randy then says Ric oh yes, and Flair then gets them to play music and introduces the first person from Randy's past, his old high-school girlfriend. She comes out and Flair and Orton are smiling almost laughing and Randy's old high-school girlfriend is smiling at Randy winking at him but Randy's smile turns into a frown now and Flair then signals to the people down at ringside to get her a mic. Flair then begins to ask her a question, which is how come she broke up with Randy here? She says she dumped him and Flair was like what, you dumped a good looking guy like Randy Orton. Randy then cuts her off and walks over to her and he then brings her over to him and kisses her one last time and then after RKOs her out of nowhere. The crowd are booing Orton hard for this but some are laughing because of what Orton did. JR calls Orton and Flair classless and King is saying how Orton's ex-girlfriend deserved it as he is laughing up a storm on commentary.

Then Flair decides to bring out the second person from Orton's past and itís a commanding officer. Everyone is surprised as they have no idea who this guy is. Orton explains who he is. That guy is a commanding officer. Orton says before he became a wrestler he was in the Marine Corps. He blamed that officer for almost ruining his life because Orton was discharged from the military after spending months in military prison. The officer says Orton deserved what he got because he disobeyed orders. Orton says he apologises for his behaviour because that incident changed his life and now heís a wrestler, the future of the WWE. He shakes the officerís hand and suddenly Orton hits the RKO and smiles. Flair then introduces the final guest and this time it is his father Cowboy Bob Orton as Randy's father comes out and joins Randy in the ring and shakes hands with Flair and hugs his son Randy. Jim Ross says heís already RKOíd two people, he would probably even RKO his own father. Lawler says donít be silly JR. Flair signals the people down at ringside to get Cowboy Bob Orton a mic and when they do, Bob Orton then gets on the mic and then says he always knew right from the moment Randy was born and he held Randy in his arms, he knew that his son would be destined for greatness in this business and hell he already is. His son's accomplishments outweigh The Rock's any day. Hell even Bob Orton was a better wrestler in his prime than Rock's old man Rocky Johnson ever was, and that history is repeating itself but this time with his son and Rocky Johnson's son. Cowboy Bob then says his son by associating himself with HHH, Ric Flair and Batista that Orton is already well on his way to becoming the greatest superstar of all time and that Summerslam is only the first step towards his son cementing his legacy. Flair says you deserve this Randy, the reason why he chose to do this here in this country because next month at SummerSlam in Canada, Orton will write a new chapter in his legacy. He will become the youngest world heavyweight champion. Randy says this is one of his greatest moments of his life and thanks Flair for doing this. The Ortons embrace in the ring and THE ROCKíS MUSIC HITS and he comes down with his father Rocky Johnson.

Rock does his ďfinallyĒ introduction and says since Flair decided to give you a surprise, the Rock decided to give you all a surprise, give it up for The Rockís father Rocky Johnson. Randy Orton is pissed and says what is the meaning of this, this is not The Rockís life, this is Randy Ortonís moment, this is his life that they are celebrating. Bob Orton tells Rock that he is disrespecting the King and Rock cuts Bob Orton off with his ďIT DOESNíT MATTERĒ LINE. The Ortons and Flair are furious. Rocky Johnson then mocks Flair for still competing at this age and Flair is furious. Rocky Johnson then says he was better than Cowboy Bob and Rock will lay the Smackdown on Randyís ass. The Rock then runs them down for trying to imitate The Rockís This is your life segment which was a ratings success. This Sunday not only is The Rock going to whoop Ortonís ass all over at Vengeance, heís also going to become the Intercontinental Champion. Orton says since heís The King, he has a royal proclamation to make and that is that he is not going to put his title on the line at Vengeance. Orton gets booed for that. Rock says Orton can shove that royal proclamation up Cowboy Bobís candy ass. Randy was furious. Rock says he has a counter offer. Since Randy isnít willing to put the title on the line, Rock says he wants Orton to put his SummerSlam title shot on the line. Flair cuts in and Rock puts his hand over Flairís face and looks Orton right in the eye and says yes or No. Orton agrees to put his SummerSlam title shot on the line.

This brings down Shawn Michaels. Shawn says it seems like weíre having a party over here and you canít have a party without HBK. HBK says he will indeed have a celebration also at Vengeance when he takes The Nature Boy to school when he teaches him a wrestling lesson. HBK asks Flair is he man enough to take on HBK one on one this Sunday or is he going to have Evolution out there with him again. Flair takes off his jacket but Randy Orton holds him back. Flair assures HBK that their match will be one on one and heís going to beat him. Michaels then turns his attention to The Rock. Michaels says at King of the Ring when he superkicked The Rock, it was every man for himself but last week when he superkicked The Rock it was simply a mistake. He looks at Rock and says If you Rock have a problem with that then lets deal with it. It looks like Rock and HBK are about to get it on and Flair and The Ortons jump them from behind. We get a big brawl in the ring as HBK and Flair are going at it, Rock and Randy are going at it, Cowboy Bob and Rocky Johnson are going at it. The crowd is loving this. Rock lays the Smackdown on Randy Orton knocking him down as Randy rolls out the ring. Rock hits the peoples elbow on Cowboy Bob Orton as Flair gets superkicked by HBK. HBK turns around and The Rock hits Michaels with a Rock Bottom. Payback for last week. Rockís music hits as Rock and his father celebrate in the ring. What a match up itís going to be this Sunday at Vengeance between The Rock and Randy Orton. Rock and Rocky Johnson stare down The Ortons as Raw comes to a close.

RAW Review

I loved how you started the show off with Jericho and Benoit in Jericho's hometown and the fact that they are talking about Benoit's DVD and then talking about Vengeance and just who will win their match for the World Heavyweight Championship since these 2 are tag team partners but also at the same time they are the World Tag Team Champions, some obvious tension between the 2 and during the opening segment it showed

Chris Benoit beating Batista just gives Benoit all the momentum in the world for Vengeance, but for Benoit I think his luck is about to run out because come Vengeance I think there will be a new World Heavyweight Champion and that Benoit's reign I think will come to an end as Jericho will be the one to end it, as for who I think will get drafted next week on RAW to Smackdown, it's possible Batista could get drafted and if that happens, Evolution gets busted up but as for Benoit I see him staying on RAW and starting a new rivalry with Jericho after he loses the title to Jericho this Sunday

Bischoff and Coach segment with Regal and Eugene was great, and then Bischoff telling Regal that his match with HHH at Vengeance will be a No-DQ match and Bischoff being so arrogant and so full of himself thinking he is going to beat Heyman next week on RAW during the 2004 WWE Draft Lottery, and that Bischoff has put Eugene in a match for next week's Draft Special and it will be against Matt Hardy of Smackdown and then tells Eugene not to let him down, and then Coach and Bischoff now having fun at Regal and Eugene's expense

Evolution accepting the challenge laid down by Cena's team for next week on the Draft Special, this is going to be great and then Orton and Flair seeing how angry Batista is and HHH and Orton and Flair the 3 of them trying to calm Batista down and then Orton and Flair promising that they will soften up Regal and Eugene for HHH and Batista was great

Regal and Eugene beating Orton and Flair by DQ was great as this loss doesn't really hurt Orton and Flair, but it also gives Regal and Eugene momentum coming into Vengeance, so that is always great

Teddy Long backstage segment with Bischoff was great, and I hope Teddy Long does get drafted to Smackdown because here on RAW he has been disrespected by the whole locker room and that on Smackdown he can manage superstars and take them to the top and then Bischoff will be truly sorry that he ever let Long get away and Coach worried that he could get drafted to Smackdown, and then Bischoff trying to reassure him and also that Trish will be back next week is going to be great but it is possible Trish could get drafted to Smackdown

HBK then cuts his promo on Flair and his match against him at Vengeance and then HBK talking about the draft and that if he should end up on Smackdown, that he will welcome it but whatever show he ends up on, RAW or Smackdown he is going to still do what he always does and that is steal the show and that at Vengeance I can just bet HBK will say that he will kick Flair's teeth down his throat but Flair I see him beating HBK at Vengeance

Jazz beating Lita was great too

And La Resistance beating Charlie Haas and The Dudleys, is great as it gives Rene Dupree momentum into his match at Vengeance for when he does face Charlie Haas

Bischoff and Heyman phone segment was great and that all the matches next week during the Draft Lottery will be inter-promotional matches RAW vs Smackdown and that their match of Bischoff vs Heyman will be a Lumberjack Match and it is possible that the GMs could even get drafted, can you imagine if Bischoff were drafted to Smackdown he then would have to work for Heyman he would have to work under him or if Heyman were drafted to RAW he then would have to work for Bischoff he would have to work under him

Chris Jericho beating HHH was great, awesome match-up all the way throughout and Benoit trying to help Jericho out during his match by getting involved and then almost costing Jericho the match but Jericho beating HHH anyways was great too, now the tension is definitely building between these 2 men now as they end up coming to blows after the match is over and they have to be separated by Eugene and Regal was great

And Randy Orton This Is Your Life segment was funny with Flair, I laughed my ass off all the way throughout especially the part with Orton RKOing his ex-girlfriend from high-school and then RKOing his Marine Corps commanding officer, and then we get to see Randy's father Cowboy Bob Orton on RAW, this is great and then The Rock interrupting all of this as Rock brings his father Rocky Johnson into it, and then HBK coming to interrupt all of this too was great, and then all of it turning into a huge brawl at the end was great

WWE News and Notes

Many WWE officials are very much anticipating the Vengeance PPV. It seems like Raw will deliver another solid ppv. At Vengeance Chris Jericho and Chris Benoit will be pulling double duty when not only do they defend their tag team titles, they will also face each other for the world title. Randy Orton will be in his biggest match of his career when he takes on The Rock. We will also see a battle between two future hall of famers the legendary Nature Boy Ric Flair takes on Shawn Michaels. William Regal who made his in ring return last month will take on The Game HHH. Plus many more top matches. Tune in this Sunday for Vengeance.

World Wrestling Entertainment has come to terms on the release of Garrison Cade and Rico. We wish them the best in all future endeavors

The WWE draft will be taking place this coming Monday on Raw. Expect to see a few big moves but there won’t be a huge roster shake up. Expect to see plenty of surprises on this show on a very historic night this coming Monday on Raw.

The following matches have been confirmed for the draft show

8 Man Tag: Evolution vs John Cena, RVD, Rey Mysterio and Kurt Angle
Eric Bischoff vs Paul Heyman
Eugene vs Matt Hardy
Plus more matches will be announced soon for the show on wwe.com


Officials have discussed the idea of turning Matt Hardy face. He is expected to start a feud with Val Venis soon.

Officials have discussed the idea of turning The Dudleys heel. They are expected to get a renewed push soon.

Officials seem to be high on Tajiri. They feel he’s the next cruiserweight star to move out of the cruiserweight division and he is expected to receive a big push. Since WrestleMania, Rey Mysterio moved out of the cruiserweight division and since then he's feuded with a lot of top stars on Smackdown and Rey has made quite a big impact. Officials believe that Tajiri can also make a strong impact. Expect to see a Tajiri push soon.

Officials are also very pleased with Dawn Marie's work on Smackdown. They feel that she plays her character very well. Not only is she assistant GM, she also manages Val Venis and the tag team champions Billy Kidman and Paul London. It is possible that Dawn could run Smackdown for one night only in the near future. Officials have discussed to bring in a heel diva(possibly Candice Michelle) to pair up with Dawn to even up the odds for her to feud with Torrie Wilson and Stacey Keibler in the near future.

Trish Stratus will still be on television but she will not be competing in action till Mid-August due to injury.

The write up for Vengeance matches won't be long. Starting from the Vengeance ppv, my match write ups won't be long.

Vengeance is shaping up to be tremendous with all the main event quality matches. I can't wait for the Dudleys to turn heel either on SD!.

Vengeance is shaping up to be one of your best pay per views of this calendar year especially with the types of matches you have on your card and as for Matt Hardy I can't wait for him to turn face and The Dudleys turning heel as well, and if Tajiri gets a push I hope he gets a WWE United States or WWE Intercontinental Championship reign at least
