Default Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

WWE Smackdown
March 18, 2004


Footage from WrestleMania 20 is shown as The Undertaker makes his return to the WWE and he is back tonight on Smackdown. The announcers welcomed us to the show. Smackdown kicks off with Paul Heyman coming down to the ring and he’s not in a good mood. Heyman grabs the mic and talks about what happened on last week’s show. The Smackdown roster betrayed him last week as they let Stone Cold Steve Austin invade. Stone Cold attacked him (Heyman) and now he doesn’t feel valued anymore. Heyman told the fans that Brock Lesnar is no longer employed in the WWE because he quit following his match at WM. He made Brock into a star. He was the youngest WWE Champion ever. Last week Brock couldn’t even protect him and at WrestleMania he got his ass whooped by Goldberg. Heyman said screw you Brock Lesnar, Smackdown has no place for quitters.

Now of all the people that let him down, he was disappointed in Big Show the most. Two years ago Big Show was having a miserable time on Raw, he was complaining about not being used much. He had no idea how long it’s been since he headlined a ppv. Then Big Show was traded to Smackdown and he became important again. Paul Heyman made him important again. Big Show ended up receiving a title match at the Survivor Series and became champion and that was thanks to Paul Heyman. If it wasn’t for Paul Heyman, Big Show wouldn’t have been the most dominant force on Smackdown. With Big Show and Brock by his side no one could touch him. Then last week Big Show ended up betraying him and he will get his revenge on The Big Show.

Heyman guaranteed to make everyones lives miserable on Smackdown. From now on he will be respected by the locker room otherwise there will be serious consequences. Heyman sets up a tag team match for tonight’s main event. It will be The Big Show and Kane vs Eddie Guerrero and The Undertaker. Heyman then talks about other issues. Paul Heyman suggested to Kurt Angle not to appear on Smackdown this week in the interest of public safety. Tonight we will hear from Kurt via satellite and he will explain why he attacked Edge.

Backstage Paul Heyman welcomes RVD and Booker T to Smackdown. Heyman is glad to have them on Smackdown and he believes that Smackdown got a better tag team deal than Raw. Heyman explained to them about how he was betrayed by the Smackdown locker room last week. He hopes RVD and Booker T don’t turn out to be like most of the Smackdown stars that defied him last week. RVD says on Raw he was Mr Monday Night but now he’s Mr Thursday Night. Heyman asked Booker how does the former 5 time world heavyweight champion feels like to be part of Smackdown. Booker tells Heyman that he was upset that they lost the tag belts on Raw but they made up for it by winning the Smackdown titles. He has no problem in being on Smackdown and now that he's on Smackdown, he will prove that he is better off here than he was on Raw.


Match 1
John Cena vs Tajiri

John Cena’s music hits as the new US Champ comes out for his match. Cena pumps up the crowd with a rap. The New Cruiserweight Champion Tajiri comes out with Akio. No title is on the line here. Tajiri and Cena lock up. Cena gets a front headlock and takes Tajiri down with a back suplex. Cena taunts Tajiri and Tajiri kicks away at Cena in the corner. Tajiri takes Cena down with a hurracarana. Tajiri tries a handspring and gets caught by a leg lariat from Cena. Cena charges Tajiri in the corner, but Tajiri applied the Tarantula. Tajiri went for his execution kick but Cena ducked and nailed him with a clothesline. Cena hits the five knuckle shuffle and gets 2. Cena goes for a powerbomb which Tajiri counters into a hurracarana for a 2. Big Kick misses and Cena goes for the FU and Tajiri slips out and rolls Cena up for the 2. Tajiri goes for a suplex and Cena slips out and takes Tajiri down with a DDT. Akio gets on the apron and distracts Cena. Tajiri accidently sprays green mist in Akio’s eyes. Tajiri turns around and Cena hits the FU for the win.
Winner: John Cena


Next up the announcers discuss the situation between Kurt Angle and Edge and right now we have Kurt Angle via satellite. Kurt Angle gets booed heavily. Kurt first talks about his match at WrestleMania. Kurt brings up the fact that Eddie Guerrero faked an injury during their match. Eddie cheated to win, he shouldn’t be champion. He deserves a rematch. Kurt says Eddie cannot beat him without cheating. Kurt claims that he was robbed by a Latino Cheat. Kurt then talked about what happened after the match when Edge came down and attacked him. Kurt gives an explanation why he attacked Edge at No Way Out last year.

Angle showed footage of a match that took place between Edge and Angle on a house show. Angle gave Edge a german suplex and Edge hurt his neck bad. He was in a lot of pain. However Edge still decided to continue on with the match and he lost.


Angle said Edge made a huge mistake as he continued on and went ahead to perform in a few matches leading up to No Way Out. Angle knew that Edge was the weak link of Chris Benoit’s team at No Way Out 2003 so he wanted to finish off the job by targeting that weak neck and he did by taking him out at NWO. It would improve Team Angle’s odds in the match but unfortunately they lost but at least he got rid of Edge. It was just team strategy and also payback for what Edge has done to him over the past years. Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin had nothing to do with this. Angle showed footage from King of the Ring 2001 when Edge beat him to become King. Angle said he could have made history by winning KOTR for 2 straight years but Edge ruined it. He blames Edge for starting the “you suck chants.”


He’s an Olympic gold medalist, a former KOTR winner, grand slam winner, he’s headlined WrestleMania and yet because of Edge these stupid fans chant you suck. Kurt then talked about one of the biggest humiliating moments of his career when he had his head shaved bald by Edge. He decides not to show footage of that. Edge was also becoming a threat to his title, by taking out Smackdown’s fastest rising star he had one less person to worry about. He didn’t know the result of the injury would be that bad, he expected Edge to be out for a few months but it ended up being more than a year. It was a satisfying moment in his career when he broke Edge’s neck and to tell the truth he’d do it again. Oh it’s true it’s damn true.

Backstage Interview with WWE Champion Eddie Guerrero. Eddie thanks the fans for being behind him from the beginning. Last month he proved that he is worthy of becoming champion and at WrestleMania Eddie proved that he is a better wrestler than Kurt Angle. Eddie sent a message for Kurt that he can get his rematch anytime he wants, he’s ready to give him the match but he warned Kurt that he should worry about his safety. He will do whatever it takes to retain the title. A victory is a victory. He is a fighting champion. Eddie then discussed tonight’s match. He’s faced many guys that are bigger than him and he does not fear Kane or Big Show. Big Show may have beaten him in the past for the US Title but that was the past and this is now. Every obstacle that has been put infront of him he has overcome Oralevato Loco. Eddie wished his friend Chris Benoit luck on Raw. He is very proud of Chris achieving his dream at WrestleMania 20 by becoming the world heavyweight champion. Eddie hoped that whenever they see each other at the next joint brand ppv, they will remain champions of their brands.

Match 2
Tag Team Championship Match
RVD & Booker T (c) vs 2 Cool

This is a good back and forth contest between both teams. Scotty does the moonwalk and is tripped by Booker. Booker pounds on Scotty at the start as he makes quick tags with RVD. RVD connects with the rolling thunder and gets a 2 count. Later in the match Scotty goes for the worm and RVD kicks out. Scotty makes a tag and Rikishi hits a samoan drop on RVD. Rikishi nails RVD with a superkick and gets the 2. Scotty is back in and RVD makes the tag to Booker. Booker drops Scotty with a sidekick. Spineroonie!!! Booker nails Scotty with the axe kick and pins Scotty to win the match.
Winners: RVD & Booker T



Backstage Heyman is on the phone to someone and Rhyno barges into Heyman’s office and complains about not having a match at WrestleMania. Heyman yells at Rhyno telling him that he’s gone soft, he isn’t the man beast anymore, he’s not feared anymore. This is why Heyman never picked him in Team Lesnar at Survivor Series. Rhyno’s an embarrassment and 2 months ago because of Rhyno he had to have his mouth washed out in soap. Is that how far he’s fallen? He scolds Rhyno for not being out there last week to protect him. Heyman said most of his guys have either quit(Lesnar, Nathan Jones) or have betrayed him(Big Show and A-Train) but he says he will give him a chance to redeem himself because although he was not there last week, he didn’t walk out on him. Rhyno told Heyman that if he was there he wouldn’t have walked out on Paul. They go back a long way in ECW and he is always loyal to Paul. Paul tries to motivate Rhyno into becoming the monster that he once was in ECW. Paul wants Rhyno to make an impact tonight.

Match 3
Johnny Nitro vs Shannon Moore

Nitro makes his in ring debut and this was a quick match. Nitro and Moore waste no time trading quick moves. Moore then reverses into a wrist lock which Moore kips-up out of. The two continue trading moves, and Nitro corners Moore. Nitro lands a kick to the mid-section and takes Shannon down with a headscissors. Shannon fights back and takes Nitro down with a tornado DDT. Moore goes for a cross body from the top rope but Nitro moves out the way. Nitro finishes Moore off with a corkscrew neck breaker to win the match.
Winner: Johnny Nitro



Backstage Interview with Rey Mysterio. Rey brings up the fact that at the start of the year his goal was to become cruiserweight champion and he did. His next goal is to move away from the division because he believes he has what it takes to become US or WWE Champion. Cruiserweights can become champions too. He talked about Eddie Guerrero and Chris Jericho as examples as they worked their way to the top. In WCW they were cruiserweight champions and then in the WWE they won the Intercontinental title and then worked their way to capturing the WWE Title. Now currently Eddie is the WWE champion and Rey hopes to follow in the footsteps of his friend Eddie. He’s won the cruiserweight title and tag team title but he’s never won the US Title. He’s never been WWE Champion. He believes he can beat guys that are bigger than him, in the past he’s had matches with Big Show, Kurt Angle and many other stars and he took them to the limit. Paul Heyman approaches Rey and laughs at him. Paul tells Rey last week Rey was one of the guys that betrayed him and tonight if he wants to prove he is worthy of moving up a division then he will face another guy who betrayed him A-Train. Either A-Train will beat the hell out of you or you will get to embarrass A-Train. Heyman laughs and walks off.

Up next Edge makes his return to Smackdown as he responds to Kurt Angle.



Edge’s music hits as he comes down to the ring to a great ovation. Edge has made his return to Smackdown after a year out due to injury at the hands of Kurt Angle. Edge gets a mic and thanks the fans for the support, it feels great to be back. He has 2 goals. 1)To get his revenge on Kurt Angle and 2)To become the WWE Champion. He talks about his injury, the surgery and how he missed being out of action for a very long time. He missed the fans. Doctors told him he was almost done but it was a miracle that he recovered from this. He worked hard to get back in shape, he worked hard to make it back for WrestleMania and he did. Although he didn’t wrestle, he was still a part of the show. During his time off he didn’t want to appear in a non-wrestling role like a manager or announcer. He’s a wrestler and he would rather be gone and come back. He wanted to heal and come back 100% as he wanted to come back with a whole lot of momentum. Now that he’s 100% he’s going to tear Kurt Angle apart.

Kurt Angle pops up on the big screen via satellite. Edge looks at the screen. Edge and Angle were trading insults at each other back and forth. Angle talked about his neck problems in the past and he underwent neck surgery last year following WrestleMania 19. He didn’t take the cowards way out like Edge. The surgery he had reduced his rehabilitation time from one year to three months. When he came back he was champion again. Something Edge has never done, Edge does not have what it takes to be a heavyweight champion. He won an olympic gold medal with a broken freakin neck. Edge says Angle may have taken him out for a year but he didn’t finish the job. He did not end his career and now that he’s back he’s going to break Kurt’s neck.

Kurt says Heyman suggested that he shouldn’t appear this week on Smackdown in the interest of public safety. With a lunatic like Edge running around, Angle says why would he take the risk to show up on Smackdown and put his career in danger. He had a rough week because he was robbed of the title at WrestleMania against that Latino Cheat Eddie Guerrero and then Edge shows up and attacks him. Kurt said he should be traded to Raw just to get away from Edge. Edge says Angle is afraid of him, he’s afraid to come out infront of these fans. Edge gives Angle advice to book a hospital bed soon because next week he’s going to break Angle’s neck. Fans are already chanting goodbye chants for Kurt and he’s had enough. The satelite screen goes out Angle leaves the big screen. Edge’s music hits.

Backstage Big Show explained his reason for betraying Paul Heyman last week. It was first all about Brock and Heyman sided with Big Show but then went back to Brock again. Big Show was kicked to the side and was just back up for Brock and Heyman. If Heyman can turn on Brock two years ago then he could have also turned on him so that's why he decided to turn on Paul before Paul betrayed him. Paul thought he was bigger than the Smackdown locker room because he thought he was untouchable. He believed that no one could stand up to him but then last week showed how weak Brock and Paul are. Now Brock Lesnar is no longer in the WWE and Paul has no one by his side. Ever since Paul became GM, he never appreciated his stars. He forced Chris Benoit to make the move to Raw as he made his life miserable on Smackdown. The roster couldn't stand Heyman. They didn't respect him. 2 months ago, Heyman had his mouth washed out with soap by John Cena. He was losing control of his roster and last week proved it. Big Show is disappointed that he lost the US Title but he is now focusing on becoming WWE Champion again. Once Big Show stopped going for the WWE Title last year, Heyman ended up going back with Brock. Brock was going for Kurt's belt and Big Show was out of the title picture. Now he is going to do things his way and tonight he will pin the WWE Champion. He holds a victory over Eddie as he beat him last year to become US Champion. Why hasn't he had a title shot against Eddie yet? Is Eddie afraid to face him. Big Show said now it's his time to become the number one star on Smackdown.

In the back Edge meets Rey. Rey welcomes Edge back to Smackdown. Rey advises Edge to not let his temper get the best of him. Now that he's back, he needs to be careful. He just came back from a serious potential career ending injury and warned Edge to be careful. He doesn't want Edge to get hurt. Edge told Rey not to worry, he's not back to get hurt, he's back to hurt others. Edge wishes Rey luck for his match which is next.



Match 4
A-Train vs Rey Mysterio

This match was quick. A-train starts out with several big power moves, but Rey comes back with a nice drop kick. Rey gets a tilt-a-whirl headscissors and goes for a roll up but A-Train kicks out. A-Train comes back with a the bicycle kick on Rey and then continues the assault on Rey in the corner. A-Train hits the derailer and Mysterio kicks out. Rey Mysterio countered a powerbomb into a victory roll and A-Train kicks out at 2. A-Train knocks Rey down with a clothesline. A-Train goes for the trainwreck and Rey slips out and dropkicks A-Train to the ropes. Rey nails a 619 followed by the west coast pop and gets the 3 count for the win.
Winner: Rey Mysterio


Rey celebrates in the ring. Rhyno ran out after the match and ambushed Rey. Rhyno gores Rey. A-Train gets up and has a big smile on his face as he watches Rhyno assault Rey. A-Train is ready to nail Rey with the bicycle kick but RHYNO ends up hitting the gore on A-Train.

In the back Kane cuts a promo and said at WrestleMania he did not expect his father to come back and be on the same side as The Undertaker. It made him sick to his stomach to see Undertaker rising from the dead and coming back with his father, Paul Bearer. For the first time in his life there was fear in his eyes when he saw Taker and Bearer reunited. Kane thought he got the job done but now that The Undertaker is back, he's going to make sure that Taker does not make his life miserable. Kane started shouting that he is still a monster and people will still be afraid of him. He was always superior than his brother and tonight he will defeat him.

Footage of the No Holds Barred match between JBL and Farooq at WM is shown. John Bradshaw Layfield’s music hits as he comes out to the ring and brags out his victory at WM. He guaranteed victory as he ran his partner Farooq out of the WWE. He proved that he was better than Farooq. Farooq was the weak link in the APA. JBL said the biggest mistake he made in his life was not to go into a singles career sooner because drinking beer, meeting the troops and tagging with Farooq held him down. It put a dent in his career, he would have been US or WWE Champion by now. JBL insulted the fans and said they all pay good money just to see JBL. He gave financial tips and JBL says he is a role model for the fans. Within the next few months he will win them over and they will jump on the JBL bandwagon. JBL guaranteed that he will be holding a title this year.

Backstage Edge is walking past as he meets some of the Smackdown stars as they welcome him back to Smackdown. Paul Heyman approaches Edge. Heyman welcomes him back but he’s not pleased with Edge accepting Stone Cold’s invitation to make an appearance on Raw next week. Austin was the man that attacked him last week, the Smackdown roster embarrassed him(Heyman) last week. He can’t afford to have a Smackdown star making an appearance on Raw. Heyman told Edge he had a great future, he shouldn’t get on the bad side of Paul Heyman. Heyman warned Edge that if anyone defied him now then there would be serious consequences. If Edge goes to Raw he will be suspended. Heyman winds Edge up and tells him if he gets suspended then he won’t get the opportunity to get revenge on Kurt Angle. Edge agreed and told Heyman that the Smackdown roster took a hit this week by losing four stars. Well next week he’s going to eliminate Kurt Angle off the Smackdown roster.


Main Event
Eddie Guerrero and The Undertaker vs The Big Show and Kane


Kane and Show have a staredown in the ring and argue over who will start. Big Show lets Kane start. Big Show and Kane pound on Eddie in the corner and stomp away. Choking and stomping follows.

Big Show chops away at Eddie in the corner. Eddie fights back and takes Big Show off his feet. Eddie charges at Big Show and Big Show takes Eddie down with a sidewalk slam. Show signals for the chokeslam and Eddie reverses and takes show down with a DDT. Eddie tags Taker in and he cleans house. Taker knocks Kane out of the ring and signals for the choke slam on Big Show and Show also grabs Taker by the throat. Big Show knees Taker in the mid-section and hits the chokeslam. Taker no sells it and rises up. Big Show tags in Kane. Later in the match Eddie hits the three amigos on Kane. Eddie goes to the top but Kane rises up and grabs Eddie by the throat and chokeslams him and Eddie kicks out at 2. Eddie makes the tag to Taker and Taker hits a big clothesline on Kane. Taker walks the rope and nails Kane across the back of the neck. Taker whips Kane in the corner and boots him in the face. Taker misses a charge and Kane hits a neckbreaker. Kane tags in Big Show.

Ya, i was thinking about that Edge thing until I read the last paragraph. Is lesnar and goldberg both gone? One thing I would have changed around this period was keep both for sure.

Your format lengthwise and formatwise is good, but use some colors or bold and underline, lots of black normal font paragraphs in continuation look monotonous. I like it you use images in between. The ending of the main event i would have wanted taker's team to pick up the win still it was okay.

One thing which is MOST sought in any BTB around this period is "How you are gonna book John Cena?". Will look to it.

Default Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

Hey, thanks for the feedback. Yes Brock and Goldberg are gone. I will not use them now as i want to see how i can do this btb with the talent that was available for that time period. Cena will be one of the main characters in this btb. There was so much potential in 2004 and the WWE could have done such an amazing job for Smackdown but it just fell flat. Raw however was awesome. My aim is to make Raw just as good or even better. Smackdown will definetely be better than it actually was for that time period. I remember the horrible Smackdown ppvs post WM20 in 2004 with so many horrible filler matches. Raw was loaded with star power and the rosters should have been evenly balanced. I've decided not to do the draft right away. The WWE did it because Smackdown took a major hit but i think i can do a very good job without doing a draft. I believe that even without a draft(which will take place most likely in June or July) i can make this better than Smackdown actually was with the new draft picks they received. There were so many awesome matches that they could have done in 2004 but they didn't. I will have loads of great ppv matches for this btb, Benoit/Michaels is a start as they did not have a one on one match at a ppv. Anyway hope you guys enjoy the shows.

*I added a change in the backstory. I decided not to go with a long term storyline of who attacked Edge. So in the backstory i mentioned that Kurt Angle was the attacker. I did some research and found out that in real life Edge and Angle wrestled on a house show in 2003 a few weeks before No Way Out 2003. That was the match when Edge broke his neck. This was never mentioned on tv, so i thought i may as well include this and mention it. I have other plans for Edge and other stars so i decided to immediately name Edge’s attacker. I want to try to keep to try to keep this realistic for example if a star was injured around that time period then i will try not to use him in a match. If a star made their debut that year for example Carlito then i won’t bring him up to the roster in April. He made his tv debut in October so i will bring him in October.I want to see how this can be improved than how it actually was with the talent that was available. If someone was fired then i will stop using them, an example was Farooq, Goldberg and Brock Lesnar. I am using Rock because he was available till August and in real life he made a few appearances. However he was never injured so he could have made more appearances and that’s why i will use Rock more often in this btb.

WWE News and Notes


- Stone Cold Steve Austin's WWE future is in question at this point. For the past few weeks, WWE has been negotiating a new contract with Steve Austin as he has failed to agree on a new contract. Steve Austin is expected to be on Raw next week. Although no new talks are scheduled between Austin and Vince McMahon but if there is then we'll keep you updated on any progress in this story.

- Officials have wanted to pair Eugene up with Matt Hardy as his Mattitude Follower. Though this may change expect to see Nick Dinsmore debuting under the Eugene character in 3 weeks.

- William Regal will be returning to the WWE in 3 weeks on the Raw brand. He is expected to return in a non wrestling role as he is not cleared to wrestle until June.

-Shawn Michaels is rumoured to have said that he would like a match at King of the Ring against The Rock. Though a possible dream match between Michaels vs The Rock has been discussed but this appears unlikely as neither Rock nor Michaels would agree to job. In the past The Rock has refused to work a program with Shawn Michaels but we will keep you updated if there is any progress in this story. The current plan is that Shawn Michaels could be turning heel soon.

-The reason why The Rock returned to team with Mick Foley at WrestleMania was to work a future program with Randy Orton. A match between Rock vs Randy Orton at King of the Ring or Vengeance has been discussed.

-Rikishi is currently frustrated with his position in the WWE and may consider leaving all together.

-Lance Storm is considering retirement. Storm is currently frustrated with his position in the WWE and it is possible that he may retire at Backlash which takes place in Canada. Storm feels that to retire in his country is the best way to go out on.

-Vince McMahon is very high on the JBL character. Management have been very impressed with JBL's promos ever since becoming JBL.

-The reason why the creative team decided not to have a long term storyline for Edge’s attacker was due to the lack of heels on Smackdown. There are reports that The Big Show and Kurt Angle will be taking time off to rest injuries. This would leave Kane along with newly turned heel JBL as the only top heels on the brand. Currently the top faces on Smackdown are The Undertaker, Eddie Guerrero, Edge, Rey Mysterio, John Cena, Booker T and RVD. Management is considering turning Edge heel in the upcoming months. They feel that they have enough faces already and Booker T has requested to management to turn him heel. This was one of the main reasons why Booker T was moved to Smackdown. Edge is open to the idea of turning heel in the upcoming months.

-A draft is expected to take place in the upcoming months, no news on who will be switching shows but it may be the time you see a member of Evolution being drafted to Smackdown. Management is considering sending either HHH, Batista or Orton to Smackdown, however Ric Flair’s position on Raw is secure.

-For this year’s King of the Ring Tournament expect to see an 8 man elimination tournament taking place. In 2002 only the semi finals took place at the ppv along with the final and this year the WWE has decided to go back to it's original format. Many stars have been rumoured to be possible contenders to become KOTR such as John Cena, Randy Orton, Batista, Christian and John Bradshaw Layfield.

Gonna start my reviews for this on the next RAW. Your layout is just fantastic, man. Big RAW and the eight man tag team match is awesome. I hope Jericho takes his revenge on Christian and Trish with a diva of his own in a mixed tag or either a one-on-one. Either way it should be good. Two #1 Contender's Matches round it out nicely. Looking forward to RAW.

WWE Raw
March 22, 2004

Match 1
Christian vs Lance Storm

Raw kicks off with Christian making his way down to ringside for his match. Trish wasn’t out there to accompany Christian as she will be appearing on the Highlight Reel later on the show. This was a decent match, although it was not too long with the action even throughout. Lance Storm got in some offense and almost had the match won when he nailed Christian with a superkick and Christian kicked out at two. Christian ducked an enziguri and finished Lance off with the unprettier to win the match.
Winner: Christian


Backstage Matt Hardy is in Eric Bischoff’s office. Bischoff informs Hardy that in 2 weeks, his nephew Eugene is coming to the WWE. Hs is a unique talent. He wants Hardy to take him under his wing and make him his Mattitude Follower. Hardy asked Bischoff what’s in it for him. Bischoff promised Hardy a world title shot against Chris Benoit on Raw once Hardy takes Eugene under his wing. Hardy agreed. Stone Cold shows up and he points out that last week he was going to invite Edge to Raw this week but Heyman barred Edge from making an appearance tonight. Well tonight Stone Cold’s decided that he will be the referee for the big 8 man tag match later on in the show.

In Ring Segment with Evolution. Evolution make their way down to ringside. HHH grabs a mic. HHH is furious and demands another title shot. He holds Rock responsible for costing him the match last week. Tonight Evolution will send Rock back to Hollywood and Foley into a hospital. HHH talks about not receiving his one on one rematch against Benoit and wants Bischoff to insert him into the Backlash main event. That’s right, it shouldn’t be Benoit vs HBK. If Benoit wants to prove that his win at WM was not a fluke then why not do the 3 way again to see if he can get the job done again. Stone Cold comes out and tells HHH that he’s sick and tired of seeing HHH complain. He had his chance last week and he blew it and now he’s starting to piss Stone Cold off. Austin says HHH will still continue to complain but he’s giving him one last chance. Austin tells HHH that he just came to an agreement with Bischoff and he explains the stipulations for the match tonight. If Evolution win tonight then it’s a triple threat match at Backlash. If Evolution lose then it’s a one on one match. Austin warned Evolution if they provoke him tonight in the main event then he will whoop their ass and that’s the bottom line coz Stone Cold said so.

Backstage Val Venis told Bischoff that his Raw contract has just expired and he’s decided not going to sign a new contract. He’s a former IC, Euro and Tag Champ and on Raw he’s being wasted. He wasn’t on the WrestleMania card. The last ppv he was on was back in December. He just called up Paul Heyman and Paul Heyman has agreed to have him on the Smackdown roster. He has assured Val that he won’t be wasted on Smackdown. Bischoff did not like this, he did not like how Val went behind his back to get a deal on Smackdown. Val then said that if you continue to waste talent on your show then this is what will happen, you will lose your stars to Smackdown.

Match 2
#1 Contenders Match: The Dudleys vs La Resistance

The World’s Greatest Tag Team come out to do commentary. Rene Dupree accompanied La Resistance down to ringside and Spike was in The Dudley’s corner. La Resistance dominated early until the The Dudleys took control of Grenier. During the match Coach asks TWGTT who they would prefer to face at Backlash. Haas said they don’t care who wins this match because at Backlash they will be victorious. Lawler asks Shelton about the situation with Kurt and Edge. Shelton says they had nothing to do with it but they do fear for Kurt because Edge is back for vengeance. As the match continued on, with a brief distraction from Rene, La Resistance took control again. Outside the ring, Rene and Spike started arguing. Eventually, both teams were in the ring and The Dudleys hit the wassup headbutt on Conway. The Dudleys hit the 3D on Grenier and got the three count to win the match and become the #1 contenders for the tag team titles.
Winners: The Dudleys


Backstage in Benoit’s locker room, HBK meets Benoit. The Rock and Sock Connection have not arrived yet.

HBK tells Benoit that he is very excited for tonight’s main event and he is looking forward to facing Benoit at Backlash. Michaels believes he is the best and until Benoit doesn’t beat him Benoit can not call himself the best. He already holds a victory over Benoit and Benoit did not make HBK tap at WM, he made HHH tap. Tonight they must work together again to embarrass Evolution. They need to ensure that they win tonight so that their match at Backlash remains a one on one contest and then we will find out who truly is the best. Benoit responds back and said it doesn’t matter whether it is one on one or a triple threat he will not get embarrassed in his hometown, he will walk in as champion and he will walk out as champion.

In the back Christian talks to Trish and tells her not to be afraid because if Jericho lays a hand on her he will be fined and suspended. Christian tells Trish to go out there and announce what they have in store for next week. Up next is the highlight reel.


The Highlight Reel

Chris Jericho comes out and tells the fans that he would love to get his hands on Trish and Christian tonight but he can’t. If he lays his hands on Trish tonight then he is fined and suspended and the same applies to Christian if he comes out then he is fined and suspended. Jericho mentioned that Christian was one of his best friends until he stabbed him in the back and turned on him. He talked about how mad he was in love with Trish and she played him at WrestleMania. That Creepy Little Bastard and that slut were in co-hoots. He vows to get his revenge and he will humiliate Christian and Trish. Jericho calls out Trish as she makes her way down to ringside. Trish explained the reasons why she turned on Jericho.


Trish taunts Jericho and lets Jericho know that she was never in love with him. She doesn’t find him attractive at all. This started off as a bet from Jericho and how he wanted to use her, how he wanted to get laid but he could never get her. Jericho started to develop feelings for her and fell in love. At WrestleMania, Trish got one over him and he didn't see it coming. She calls Jericho more dumber than Buh Buh Ray. Trish refers to the wood segment she had in 2000 when Buh Buh was all over her but it was just a tease and a plan. Jericho was blinded by love and it cost him heavily at WrestleMania. Trish says she would never trust a guy who was going to use her in the first place. No one uses Trish Stratus, she has way too much class. She knew that Jericho could never treat a woman right. He has no respect for women with class. Trish refers to Stephanie McMahon as an example and in the past Jericho insulted Stephanie McMahon, he took it way too far. Christian would never treat a woman like that, he would treat them with class and that’s why she went for a real man and that’s Christian.

Christian was there for her and he looked after her when she was in hospital. They started to grow feelings for each other and they ended up falling in love. Now that's what you call true love. She decided that she will teach Jericho a lesson and it would happen on the biggest stage of them all and Jericho ended up getting his heart broken. Trish started laughing. Jericho continued to listen to her explanation as Trish called Jericho a user because last year he made Christian do all the dirty work for him. Trish mentions the Royal Rumble match from last year when Jericho asked Christian to dress up as him so that they could eliminate HBK. Jericho was so selfish that he didn’t give his Survivor Series favour to Christian. Jericho’s had way too many title shots and Christian has never had a world title shot on a ppv. Jericho held Christian back but at WrestleMania, Christian proved he is better than Jericho.

As a wrestler she’s proven all there is to prove as far as women’s wrestling goes. Now as a manager she will guide Christian to the top. She taunts Jericho and brags about her body and says Jericho will never EVERRRRRRRR(mocks Jericho) get a piece of her again. Trish announced that next week on RAW she will have a LIVE SEX celebration with Christian for getting one over Jericho at WrestleMania. Jericho asks her is she done. Jericho then bashed her with a series of insults by asking Trish if she will ask the entire locker room to join in the celebration. Trish was furious and Jericho asked Trish if Bischoff will bring back HLA(Hot Lesbian Action) for the Live Sex Celebration.

Jericho asked Trish that she said she wants to take Christian all the way to the top and make him a bigger star. Well does that mean then she will turn to Bischoff for sexual favours so that he ends up giving Christian title shots. That's the sort of slut she is. Jericho continued to mock Trish and gets interrupted by Eric Bischoff who comes down to ringside. Bischoff was livid and tells Jericho to stop right there. He is not going to allow Jericho humiliating the three times babe of the year and Raw’s top diva. Bischoff doesn’t care if Jericho doesn’t have his wrestling gear. He wants Jericho to clear the set right now because Jericho will have a match against the man who will guide his nephew Eugene to the top...... MATT HARDY.

Match 3: Chris Jericho vs Matt Hardy

The match was back and forth through out and eventually came to an end with Matt attempting the twist of fate and Jericho counters with a Bulldog. Jericho hits a lionsault for the win.
Winner: Chris Jericho


Backstage Val Venis tells his partner Lance Storm that he has left Raw and asks Storm to join him on Smackdown. Val is now going to take his career seriously, he has become serious and from now on he doesn't trust women, he's not the ladies man no more. He does not want to become a joke and he deserves to be treated with respect, he is talented and deserves success on Smackdown. Storm agrees that they have become a joke on Raw but over there on Smackdown the situation will be the same because Paul Heyman is losing control of his show. However he will not be joining Val on Smackdown. He wants to prove here on Raw that he is not a failure and if he fails he will retire. By proving his loyalty, he hopes he will be rewarded with an Intercontinental title shot. Val said it's not about loyalty, it did not get him far. It's about opportunity and Smackdown is the land of opportunity. Val says Storm is making a big mistake but still wished him luck.

Match 4
#1 Contenders Triple Threat Match
Lita vs Jazz vs Molly

Victoria comes out to do commentary. The match was decent, with the heels double teaming Lita. Jazz then turns on Molly and starts controlling the majority of the match. Lita went for a moonsault on Molly near the end but misses. Jazz throws Molly outside the ring and forces Lita to submit to the STF. Jazz is now the new #1 contender for the womens title. Jazz motions for the belt.
Winner: Jazz


Backstage Bischoff talks to Austin over Val walking out. He said he is not going to allow stars walking out, if anyone is unhappy he will be glad to trade them and get stars that are unhappy on Smackdown in return. Austin suggested that Lance Storm should have a title shot as he decided to stay on Raw. Bischoff agreed and next week Storm will get an intercontinental title shot.

Backstage interview with The Rock and Sock Connection. This is Mick’s first Raw match in four years. Mick said the only reason Orton is not getting the credit he feels he deserves is because Evolution had the extra man advantage at WM. Orton will not get the credit until he beats Foley one on one. Tonight Evolution don’t have the extra man advantage, it’s even and tonight he’s going to get one over Orton. He’s going to hurt Orton. Foley passes the mic to The Rock. Rock talked about his big rivalry with HHH in the past. Rock mimics Evolution. Evolution may have ruined their night at WrestleMania but tonight Rock guaran-damn-tees that they will whoop Evolutions candy asses if ya smelllll what the Rock and Sock connection is cooking.


Main Event
Special Guest Referee Stone Cold Steve Austin
8 Man Tag Team Match
Evolution vs Shawn Michaels, The Rock, Chris Benoit and Mick Foley

A very good back and forth match that went on for about 20 minutes. Orton and Foley were fighting before the bell even rang. Finally when the bell rang HBK starts off the match with Flair. After early momentum by the faces, the heels took turns beating Foley. Austin stops the heels from teaming up on Foley. Evolution start arguing with Austin. Batista hit a spine buster on Foley for a near fall. Eventually, Foley tags in The Rock for the hot tag. He took it to Batista, and then attempted to take it to Flair as well. Rock hit a spine buster on Flair and signalled for the peoples elbow. Rock comes across the ropes and is about to hit the elbow but suddenly Orton stops Rock and hits the RKO. Rock and Flair are both down and Flair tags in HHH. Rock and HHH go at it and Rock hits a samoan drop on HHH. Rock tags Benoit in. HHH and Benoit trade chops until HHH takes Benoit down with a knee lift. HHH whips Benoit into the corner and goes for a charge but eats boot. Benoit hits the rolling five german suplexes on HHH. Benoit goes up and hits the swan dive and goes for the cover and Batista breaks it up.

The match continued on as Evolution were back in control. HHH exposed the turnbuckle pad and sends Benoit shoulder first into the post to knock him out the ring. HHH gets in Austin's face again. Austin warns HHH if he provokes him not only will he beat the hell out of him, HHH will also lose the opportunity to be inserted into the Backlash main event. HHH and Mick Foley brawl in the ring. HHH goes for a pedigree on Foley but Foley backdrops HHH over the top rope. All hell breaks loose in the ring and we get a big brawl in the ring and also outside the ring. This leaves Foley in the ring with Orton. Foley goes for the mandible claw(Mr Socko) and Orton goes low and kicks Foley in the balls. Orton signals for the RKO but Foley shoves him down. Rock is back in the ring. Foley sends Orton into the exposed turnbuckle and Orton walks into a Rock Bottom by the Rock. Foley ends up covering Orton for the 3 count as Foley's team win the match.

Winners: Shawn Michaels, The Rock, Chris Benoit and Mick Foley


The faces celebrate in the ring with Austin as Raw comes to a close.

WWE News and Notes


-The WWE is bringing back the WCW concept of Battle Bowl on Smackdown. It’s a concept that often conjures up some spectacular and some odd match-ups and it seems as if WWE have revived the famous WCW gimmick match. Expect to see a lethal lottery tournament taking place on April 1 on Smackdown over the course of three weeks. This will tie in with the Paul Heyman storyline as he was betrayed by the Smackdown roster and his way of revenge is to pair up random teams to see if they can co exist. So you could see enemy teaming up with enemy. Partner’s could go against each other and this could break up teams. To find out more about this, tune in to Smackdown this week.

-Currently the plan is to have either an Iron Man Match or a Ladder Match between Shawn Michaels and Chris Benoit at Backlash. Though this may change expect to see Benoit and Michaels going at it in an Iron Man Match.

-Now that HHH is not going to be involved in the main event at Backlash, expect HHH to revive his old rivalry with The Rock at Backlash.

Smackdown Preview
March 25, 2004




Tonight Kurt Angle makes his return to Smackdown and Kurt wants his rematch from WrestleMania against Eddie Guerrero. Last week Paul Heyman suggested to Kurt Angle not to appear on Smackdown this week in the interest of public safety. Last week via satellite Kurt Angle explained why he attacked Edge and Edge promised that if Kurt showed up on Smackdown he would break Kurt’s neck. Will it be a wise move for Kurt to show up tonight? Is Kurt taking Edge’s threat too lightly? Will Paul Heyman grant Kurt his rematch and keep Edge away from Angle tonight?

Speaking of Paul Heyman, last week Heyman was attacked again but this time by The Undertaker. Is this starting to become a routine now for Heyman to be attacked every week on Smackdown? What will the Smackdown general manager do tonight? Will Paul Heyman even show up? To find out tune in to Smackdown.

Confirmed Matches
6 Man Tag Team Match: US Champion John Cena and Tag Team Champions RVD and Booker T vs The FBI
Cruiserweight Title Match (c)Tajiri vs The Hurricane
Rey Mysterio vs Rhyno
+ much more

Haven't really read anything in this thread before but I must say you have yourself some interesting work done so far, and a time that is jam packed with talent to work with, so hopefully you utalize that. I am loving the fact that you are using lots of pictures from real life to help the readers in your shows, very good idea, not something I have seen done too often before. Keep it up.

SmackDown is looking like a big show, I doubt the rematch for Wrestlemania will happen tonight, it will probably wait until a PPV or something. I assume you would do something like Eddie and Edge vs. Kurt and someone which is also a great main event. Please push the HUrricane he was great back then, didn't really like Tajiri much.

Overall looks good, has the potential, I'll drop a bit of feedback when I can. Best of luck.

Default Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

Credit to AJ22 for helping me with some storyline ideas. Thanks AJ22. No Undertaker appearance tonight but he will be there for next week’s show.

WWE Smackdown
March 25, 2004


The announcers welcome the fans to the show as Paul Heyman’s music hits and the Smackdown General Manager makes his way down to the ring. Heyman comes out in a neck brace and he’s not in a good mood. Heyman grabs the mic and gets straight to the point. He talks about losing control of the Smackdown roster, how he has been disrespected and attacked by a star from another roster. He had a vision for Smackdown but he was betrayed by his own roster. Now he’s wearing a neck brace because of The Undertaker and The Undertaker will pay for this. He believes that the superstars of Smackdown think if they bully him around then he will quit his job but that’s not going to happen. He won’t surrender and he has come up with a plan of punishing and rewarding. If the Smackdown stars decided to stick together and allowed Stone Cold to invade then lets just see if they can co-exist next week because that bond will be broken and he will find ways of making each and everyone who betrayed him suffer. Two months ago we had the first ever Smackdown Rumble and next week for the first time ever on Smackdown a lethal lottery tournament will be held. The tournament will be held over three weeks and this will determine who the #1 contender is for the WWE Title. The winner of the tournament will face the WWE Champion at Judgment Day.

Heyman explains the rules. 6 tag team matches will take place next week and the winners advancing to a battle royal the following week. The last 2 guys remaining in the battle royal will compete the week later in a match to decide the #1 contender. However there is a twist, it’s not an ordinary tag team match. It will be random drawings which will force people to team up. You can have enemies teaming with enemies, friends with friends. Heyman gave some examples that we could end up seeing such as The Undertaker and Shannon Moore(Heyman laughed) vs Rhyno and Kane. Big Show and Funaki (Heyman laughs again) vs JBL and Chavo Jnr. Another match could be Rikishi teaming with Nunzio against Scotty 2 Hotty and Johnny the Bull. Or how about The Bashams on opposing teams. Kurt Angle and Edge who want to tear each other apart could end up on the same team. The tag team champions RVD and Booker could end up on opposing teams. The possibilities are endless and this is why he’s set this up so that 1) it determines whether they co-exist or 2)Maybe the partners don’t get along and beat the hell out of each other, ruining their chances of becoming the #1 contender. Heyman then introduces Val Venis who he has signed from Raw.


Val Venis comes out with no music and he’s shaved his head bald. Val thanks Heyman for giving him this opportunity. Val discusses his run on Raw and how disastrous it was. He was not given a chance and he was wasted on Raw as they focused more on the youth but did not give him and other veterans such as Storm a chance. Storm decided to stay on Raw but Val made the sensible decision not remain on Raw. On Raw women started to reject him because he was no longer young and his hair all started falling out. His long locks were a big hit with the ladies back in the day. Now that his hair started to fall out, he's just another guy. And compared to pretty boys like John Cena and Randy Orton, he's not that impressive in the face anymore. He hates youth because he no longer has it. He was miserable on Raw, he wasn’t even on the WM card. Then he failed to win the tag titles on Raw. He couldn’t tolerate it anymore and decided not to renew his contract on Raw and now he’s come to Smackdown to make a big impact. He wants to prove that he deserves an opportunity to succeed on Smackdown and how he can still compete against the very best in the ring. He blasted the fans of Raw that didn’t appreciate him and had hoped that the fans of Smackdown appreciate him. As of now he’s no longer the ladies man, he doesn’t need no ladies or a tag partner, from now on he’s not going to be held back.

Match 1
Cruiserweight Title Match
Tajiri (c) vs The Hurricane


Fast paced stuff early on, as both guys exchange flips and other mat maneuvers. Tajiri gets a spinning heel kick followed by a leg scissors. Helms comes back by hitting a neckbreaker. Hurricane attempts the Eye of the Hurricane, but Tajiri blocks and connects with the head scissors. Tajiri kicks away at Hurricane and locks in the tarantula. Tajiri whips Helms into the ropes and Helms gets a crossbody for the two count. Helms goes for his chokeslam and gets it and Tajiri kicks out at two. Helms starts posing for the crowd. Helms goes for a flying clothesline from the top rope but Tajiri kicks him in the ribs. Tajiri gets the handspring elbow drop and gets a two count only. Tajiri ducks the shining wizard and Tajiri powerbombs Helms but doesn’t cover him. Helms is starting to get back up and Tajiri nails Helms with the buzzsaw kick across the back of the head. Tajiri covers Helms for the 3 count to win the match.
Winner and still Cruiserweight Champion Tajiri


Backstage Big Show barges into Heyman’s office and grabs Heyman by the neck. Heyman is screaming with pain. Heyman begged Big Show not to hurt him. Big Show knows that Heyman is up to something. He knows that Heyman will get him back for the incident on Smackdown two weeks ago. He thinks that Heyman will rig the draw and will place Big Show in an impossible situation next week. Heyman apologises to Big Show and he will do anything Big Show wants, just let him go. Big Show knows that Kurt Angle is here tonight for his rematch but he had his chance and lost. Now he has to get back in line or win the tournament to get his opportunity again. Big Show wants a WWE title match tonight against Eddie Guerrero in a No Holds Barred Match so that he doesn’t have to compete in next week’s Smackdown lethal lottery tournament. He holds a victory against Eddie when he beat him for the US Title back in October and since Eddie became the champion, he never gave Big Show a title shot. Is Eddie afraid of him, damn right he is because just like his US Title reign ended, Big Show will end his WWE Title reign. Heyman says what about Kurt? Show grabs Heyman by the throat again and Heyman screams and tells Big Show he’s got his match.


Match 2
Rhyno vs Rey Mysterio

Rhyno jumps Rey before the bell even rings. Mysterio comes back and dropkicks Rhyno over the top rope. Rey hits a baseball slide and then a high cross body. Rhyno catches him with a brutal spinebuster and clotheslines Rey. Rhyno continues to maul Rey with power moves and gets a powerslam for a two count. Rey comes back with a hurracarana, springboard high cross body and a reverse DDT. Rey goes up to the top and Rhyno catches Rey and slams him. Rhyno sets Rey up for the gore but misses. Rey hits the 619 followed by the west coast pop and pins Rhyno for three count.
Winner: Rey Mysterio


In the back Heyman is in real pain and Torrie and Dawn come inside his office. They ask Paul if he’s fine and he should have the night off and take a few weeks rest. Heyman said No, he won’t back down and if they continue to ask him questions then he will give them the night off and a few weeks off Smackdown. Dawn asks Paul if he wants a massage and surprisingly Heyman didn’t want a massage. Heyman called them over just to let them know that next week they will be assisting him for the draw for the lethal lottery. A-Train another former Heyman guy barges into the office and starts yelling at Heyman and wants to know why Rhyno attacked him for no reason last week. Heyman said he’s had a bad night so far and if A-Train lays a hand on him then he will be fined and suspended. Heyman tells A-Train that he let him down two weeks ago and he had to be taught a lesson but that wasn’t the real lesson. If A-Train thinks he’s so tough then he will face an opponent of Paul’s choice tonight. If A-Train backs out of the match he will lose his spot for next week’s lethal lottery tourney.

Kurt Angle’s music hits and he’s not in a good mood. Kurt grabs a mic and talks about Eddie Guerrero being lucky not to face him tonight but demands to know why Big Show is getting the title shot when he doesn’t deserve it. He wants answers from Paul Heyman and he wants the answers NOW. Paul Heyman appears on the video wall and he’s like now what. Kurt wants Paul to change the main event for tonight. Heyman said he can’t do it. Paul said Big Show threatened him so he was forced to name Show as the #1 contender. Kurt said what if he threatened Paul now and broke his neck just like he broke Edge’s neck. Paul told Kurt he can’t even suspend him because to suspend him is a reward for Kurt so that he gets away from Edge. Paul told Kurt that Edge will be here tonight and he can show up anytime so now that Kurt isn’t getting his title shot tonight, he better get out of here in the interest of his public security. Paul said he is not going to be responsible for what happens to Kurt if he doesn’t get out of here. Kurt said he can deal with Edge, infact Edge is a coward and won’t show up because he’s afraid of him. Paul said if Kurt lays a hand on him then he will remove him from next week’s tournament and then it will be a very long time till Kurt gets a title shot again. Kurt had enough and started to make his way to the back to find Heyman. Kurt’s walking down to the ramp and Edge’s music hits. Edge meets Kurt at the ramp and Kurt is shocked.

Edge chases Angle and Angle falls down and Edge hammers away at Angle. Angle gets in the ring and starts stomping away on Edge. Angle goes for the Angle Slam but Edge slips out and hits the Edgecution on Angle. Fans are loving this. Edge grabs a chair and Angle is back up and tries to escape. Angle tries to crawl up to the the ramp to safety but Edge chases him down and destroyed him with several chair shots to the back and hits Angle on every part of his body as Angle lied on the entranceway. Edge has totally lost it. Edge drags Angle all the way down to the ring and places the chair down on the mat. Edge picks Angle up and hits the electric chair drop right on the steel chair. Angle is just out cold and isn’t moving. Edge grabs the steel steps and brings the steel steps into the ring and places Angle on the steel steps. Edge grabbed a chair and he’s getting ready to deliver a con-chair-to but Rey Mysterio runs down and stops Edge from continuing on the assault. Rey tries to talk sense into Edge and tells him enough is enough now the damage has been done. Edge told Rey to get out the ring and not get involved in his business. Rey pleads with Edge and Edge shoves Rey down to the mat. Rey again pleads with Edge so Edge listens and gets out of the ring with Rey. Rey calls for officials but Edge quickly slips back in and blasts Angle by delivering a vicious con-chair-to Angle’s neck. Rey starts yelling at Edge and the cheers for Edge turn to boos. Officials make their way out to attend to Kurt. Edge celebrates at the top of the ramp, leaving Angle in a bloody heap. Edge has totally snapped.



As we return to Smackdown, Michael Cole and Tazz showed a video and recapped what had just happened with Edge and Kurt Angle. They also showed Angle being attended to by WWE doctors after the brutal assault from Edge. They put him in a neck brace and on a stretcher. He gets carried away in a stretcher and then gets taken away in an ambulance. Rey Mysterio decided to help out by going to the hospital. Most of the locker room is out there helping and showing concern. However they show Edge being interviewed backstage and Josh Matthews thinks Edge went too far.

Edge explained his actions and maybe he went too far but he has been waiting for over a year for this. He was limited in what he could do in life and right now he made sure Angle is the one with a limited life. Being out for over a year made him into a vicious lunatic. Edge said he used to be fun but Kurt Angle turned him into this bitter raving lunatic. Oh people are feeling sorry now for Angle, but what about him when he was out. People did not get to see what Angle did but just because they saw what he did it makes him look bad now. Well he doesn’t care because he did the right thing and delivered on his promise and his mission is accomplished. If people think he was right then they are right to cheer him but if they think he went too far then they are right to boo him and he doesn't give a damn. From now on we won’t be seeing Kurt Angle in action for a very long time. Edge mocks Angle by saying oh it’s true, it’s damn true.


Match 3
6 Man Tag Team Match
John Cena, RVD and Booker T vs The FBI

This was a decent contest and at the beginning the FBI started to team up against Cena who made a comeback and tagged in RVD. RVD knocked Nunzio down with a kick to the face. RVD followed up with the rolling thunder. Tazz mentions that we could end up seeing RVD and Booker T going against each other next week and the same goes for the FBI. Mid-way into the match Stamboli and Chuck stomp on Booker outside. Booker is back up and walks down the apron as RVD comes off the ropes and knocks Booker accidently down. RVD turns around to see what just happened and apologises and gets rolled up from behind and just kicks out at 2. Booker is laying on the floor and is pissed at RVD and doesn’t want to get back in the ring. Booker leaves and makes his way down to the back making it a 3 on 2 match. The heels got in a decent amount of offense taking advantage of the 3 on 2 situation. Near the end of the match Cena hits the FU on Stamboli and pins him for the 3 count.
Winners: John Cena, RVD and Booker T


Backstage Booker T is being interviewed and he says he can’t believe how foolish RVD was to make that mistake. RVD walks through the curtain with Cena and argues with Booker for walking out but Booker blames RVD. Cena tries to calm things down and said come on guys, we are all champions. It was just a mistake from RVD and they should really let it go. Cena tells RVD to apologise to Booker for accidently knocking him off the apron and Booker to apologise to RVD for walking out. Cena doesn’t want an apology from Booker, he just wants them to make up. RVD apologises but Booker doesn’t. He told Cena he’s got this and Cena walks away. RVD asks Booker T what’s wrong with him because since moving to Smackdown, his attitude has changed. On Raw they enjoyed working as a team. It’s been 2 weeks now that they’ve been on Smackdown and he wants to know what is it with this attitude he’s had lately. Booker T said he has no problem being on Smackdown but since WrestleMania this is the 2nd time RVD made a mistake. At WrestleMania, RVD was the one who was pinned and they lost the Raw tag team titles. Tonight he accidently nailed his tag team partner.

RVD explained to Booker that he made up for each mistake. At WrestleMania, they won the 2nd fall to become champions again but this time by winning the Smackdown belts. Tonight they made up for it by winning the match even if it meant that they won in a 3 on 2 match. Booker says oh so you think you can do better without me, maybe it’s time if we went solo because as a team YOU will continue to make the mistakes. Booker wants to be US Champion or WWE Champion, as tag team champion he has to carry this team and can’t afford to have RVD making more mistakes. He would rather do things his own way. RVD in a cocky way says what you mean carry this team, we work as a team and tells Booker it was a mistake, they can be the greatest tag team ever, no team can touch them. There’s no body he’d have as a tag team partner than Booker. They made their debuts in the WWE around the same time, they were in the Alliance together, they were tag team champions on Raw and now they’ve come together to Smackdown. It just can’t end like this. RVD extended his hand and Booker finally agreed to continue teaming up with Van Dam. Booker reminded RVD that next week is the lethal lottery tournament and he wants to win the tournament. RVD says may the best man win and he asked what if they end up facing each other on opposite teams. Booker had a stunned look on his face and said tell me you didn’t just say that.... and he walks off.


Match 4
A-Train vs Kane

A-Train comes down to the ring. Kane’s music hits and he’s A-Train’s opponent. Decent big man brawl. A-Train and Kane hammer away at each other and A-Train knocks Kane down with the bicycle kick. A-Train misses a charge and Kane takes control of the match. Kane connects with a DDT and goes up to the top rope and knocks A-Train down with a clothesline. Kane gets a sidewalk slam and A-Train kicks out at two. A-Train reverses a whip and takes Kane down with a clothesline. A-Train sets Kane up for the trainwreck, Kane slips out and chokeslams A-Train. Kane makes the cover and gets the 3 count for the win.
Winner: Kane


Post-Match Kane grabs a mic. He hoped that Undertaker does not end up as his tag team partner next week and if he does he will cause major destruction on Paul Heyman and the rest of the Smackdown roster.

Backstage Interview with Eddie Guerrero. Eddie said Kurt Angle was running his mouth about getting a title shot but he had his chance and lost and now it looks like he won’t be getting one for a long time. Eddie guaranteed that by the time Kurt is back, if he's back then Latino Heat will still be champion. Eddie talked about Big Show holding a victory over him and that was the past. Eddie said tonight he will shut Big Show up once and for all.

JBL makes his way down to the ring and before he talks about the lethal lottery tournament he shows footage of his life history and how he got rich. JBL told the fans that someday they can be like JBL. Fans started booing JBL and they started the “What” chants. JBL then discussed the tournament and how he could end up with a partner he’s never teamed with before or someone he doesn’t like. More “What” chants and JBL stopped and said those chants should only be on Raw and not on Smackdown. JBL continued and said he’s so rich that he can pay them his opponents off to throw the match, he can pay his foe to co-exist with him but he won’t do that because he wants to doesn’t want it to come the easy way. He will prove that he is the greatest wrestler in the WWE. The “What chants” got louder and JBL was getting pissed off and started to insult the fans and said he will continue on and on and on and won’t leave till they stop.



People like him are the ones that founded America, he is a great American. He is an American hero, he’s a self made millionaire. He’s richer than all of you people and all you people are pathetic. Fans started booing him heavily. JBL was going to offer a lucky fan a chance of earning money but he’s not going to do that in this stinking city and he will save that for a better city. JBL guaranteed that no matter who he teams with next week, he will advance to the battle royal. JBL’s music hit as he left the ring.

Backstage Val Venis is in Heyman's office and Heyman tells Val that he will give Val an opportunity he never had on Raw, Val will be competing in the lethal lottery tournament for a chance to become the #1 contender. Val was very excited. Heyman said that there could be more to come from Raw, he will find out from Bischoff if he's up for a talent trade. In the past Bischoff stole his ECW talent and now he's signed Val. He will find out from Bischoff if they can negotiate with each other on which wrestlers to trade.
