Smackdown Review:

Opening Segment- I like the idea of the tag team matches and the possible outcomes can lead to many interesting things for Smackdown. The winner of it getting a title shot is also a good idea because that can make a midcarder a main eventer while giving them credibility by beating main eventers in the tournament. This is also a good way to form new teams and alliances.

Match 1: Tajiri vs The Hurricane- I would have liked The Hurricane to win the title but i am glad he didn't win it on smackdown. I'd rather him do it at a pay per view.

Big Show and Heyman Segment- I liked how you made Big Show look menacing and it seems like you are building him up for a big win or a title victory. A Big show vs Heyman feud can also workout if you decide to do that. I am looking forward to seeing how you continuously develop Big Show in this.

Edge and Angle Segment- I liked this segment a lot. A feud between the two looks like it will be interesting and maybe a Angle and Rey Mysterio alliance or a Mysterio vs Edge feud would also be a good feud to have.

RVD and Booker T Segment/Match- This is an interesting possible feud that could be very good. I am interested to see what happens in the Lethal Lottery with these two.

Kane Segment- I liked how Kane won the match and i am curious as to what will happen with The Undertaker and him in the Lottery and if they are against each other or teaming up.

JBL Segment- I like how since he didn't have a match you had hi cut a promo and i have a feeling that he might become the Number 1 contender

Main Event- I am glad that Eddie kept the title as i don't think he should lose it yet and on Smackdown instead of on PPV. Eddie came out very strong and the Big Show/Heyman feud was bumped at the end again. Good main event.

Overall it was a good show and i am looking forward to the Lethal Lottery/Battle Royal for the number 1 contendership. Keep up the good work.

Thanks for the feedback. I always wanted to see the WCW Lethal Lottery/Battle Bowl concept in the WWE, too bad we will never get it. I’m doing this in my btb as it goes well with my storyline and it also gives certain stars pushes to advance to the next round. I may use this concept for Raw but that would be after that draft. It's a concept that was used in WCW and for my next Raw show, Bischoff will have a lot to say about Heyman stealing an idea from WCW.

Another concept i was keen on introducing sooner was MITB but decided not too.

I was going to introduce Mordecai in this btb to start off a feud with Taker or team up with Kane but decided not to. Would have been good but no point in having him for three months when he lasted around less than three months in the company. I will not have Mordecai, Luther, Kenzo Suzuki, Tyson Tomko and most of the divas in the diva search contest in this btb. Eugene, Carlito, Simon Dean, Muhammed Hassan and Chris Masters will debut in this btb in the month they actually debuted in so it remains kinda realistic.

WWE Raw Preview
March 29, 2004




Tonight for the first time ever on Raw we will see a LIVE SEX celebration as Christian will have sex with Trish Stratus. Will Christian and Trish follow through on their promise and will Chris Jericho come looking for revenge?

It is certainly the end of an era for the legendary Stone Cold Steve Austin as the rattlesnake couldn’t agree on a new contract and he has now left the WWE. Tonight Eric Bischoff is back in full control as he will decide which match Shawn Michaels and Chris Benoit will compete in at Backlash. Chris Benoit will also be in action as he will defend his title against Matt Hardy. The opportunity for Hardy was going to come soon but Hardy has requested the General Manager to have his opportunity at the gold tonight.

For the first time ever we will see the legendary Nature Boy Ric Flair against the Hardcore Legend Mick Foley. At WrestleMania they went at it in a 3 on 2 match. Last week they went at it in an 8 man tag match but tonight it’s one on one. Who will be victorious tonight in this classic battle between two legends?

All this and much more on Monday Night Raw.

Confirmed Matches
Mick Foley vs Ric Flair
Chris Benoit vs Matt Hardy
Randy Orton vs Lance Storm
10 Man Tag Match: La Resistance & The World’s Greatest Tag Team vs The Dudleys, Mark Jindrak and Garrison Cade
Jazz vs Lita

WWE News and Notes


Kurt Angle is taking a few months off as he is having neck injury. This is the reason why the injury angle was done on Smackdown. Kurt is expected to be back in July. Kurt may be kept on television in a non wrestling role however the creative team feel it is best to keep Kurt off tv until he is fully healed and cleared to return to in ring action.

WWE has come to terms on the release of Smackdown diva Nidia. We wish Nidia the best in all future endeavors.

After months of negotiations, the WWE and Steve Austin have been unable to come to terms on a new contract and as a result have mutually agreed to part company. Both parties have left the door open to work together again in the future and the WWE wishes Steve the very best in his future endeavors.

WWE Raw
March 29, 2004


The announcers welcome us to the show as Raw gets underway with an Intercontinental Title Match. Lance Storm's music hits as he makes his way down to the ring. Storm requests a microphone prior to his match. He’s tired of losing and it has to stop and he doesn’t want to be traded to Smackdown. He needs to get back to winning ways. He can’t continue to disgrace himself and now he has the chance to get his career back on track by becoming the Intercontinental Champion again. Backlash is in Canada and since Bischoff likes to keep him off ppvs, he could end finally end up wrestling on ppv if he wins the title tonight. If he does not beat Orton tonight then he will retire from wrestling and his last match will be on Raw in his hometown in Calgary which is the night after Backlash. However if he wins the IC belt tonight then there is no need for retirement. Orton’s music hits as he comes down to the ring and he has a smile on his face. Randy Orton requests a microphone and gloats about being the legend killer. Although Storm is not a legend, he wants to be responsible for Storm retiring.

Match 1
Intercontinental Title Match
Randy Orton (c) vs Lance Storm

The bell rings as the match gets underway. This was a good back and forth contest. Orton takes control of the match and Storm fights back and knocks down Orton with a few right hands. Storm gets a dropkick and follows up with an armdrag and works on Orton’s arm. Orton makes a comeback and hits a dropkick for a two count. Orton gets a suplex and goes for a powerslam and Storm slips out and nails Orton with an enziguri. Storm gets Orton in the single leg Boston crab but Orton makes it to the ropes. The match ends with Orton hitting an RKO on Storm. Orton pins Storm for the 3 Count to retain the title.
Winner and still Intercontinental Champion Randy Orton


Orton’s posing in the ring as he taunts Storm. Storm is very upset but receives a great ovation from the crowd as Storm makes his way to the back. Orton gets a mic and poses in the ring and tells the fans that he demands respect. Suddenly Mick Foley’s music hits and he makes his way down to the ring.

Foley tells Orton that the only way to earn respect is to earn it and Orton still hasn’t beaten him one on one. Orton pinned him at WrestleMania but that was a tag match and last week Foley pinned Orton and that was also a tag match and now they are even. Now they need to settle this once and for all in a one on one match. Orton agrees and he’s sick and tired of seeing Mick Foley here calling himself the hardcore legend and Orton kills legends, this is why he is called the legend killer. Mick just doesn’t get it, last year he was kicked down the stairs by Orton, he was spat in the face by Orton. He’s been humiliated by Orton and became a coward. Mick won last week because of The Rock. Mick could never beat him one on one. Foley has a solution for this and it will end once and for all. He challenges Orton to put his Intercontinental Title on the line in a Hell in a Cell Match at Backlash and Evolution will be barred from ringside. Orton was stunned, he didn’t like this but he accepted Foley’s challenge but only on one condition. He’s sick and tired of Foley making these pointless comebacks in the ring. Foley was retired by the great HHH but Foley made a foolish mistake to step back in the ring. Orton adds his own stipulation to the match, if Orton wins, Foley’s career is over in the WWE. He is done. Orton wants Foley to bring his family to Backlash so that they can see Orton ending Foley’s career. Orton said that Foley has no chance and will fade into obscurity after he loses at Backlash.


Foley accepts and talks about how many stars in the past tried to put him out but he always came back. At the Royal Rumble 1999, he had one of the most brutal brawls ever against The Rock, Rock may have won but Foley was back the next night. HHH beat him in the hell in a cell match at No Way Out but he came back and wrestled at WrestleMania the next month. So no matter who tries they can never put him down. He warns Orton that tonight against Flair he will show Orton a sneak preview of what’s in store for him at Backlash. Have a nice day!!!

Backstage Coach meets Bischoff in Bischoff's office. Eric Bischoff is in a great mood. Coach asks Bischoff why he is such a great mood. Bischoff laughs and tells Coach that from now on Stone Cold’s no longer the sheriff as he is no longer in the WWE. He couldn’t agree on a new contract so now Coach no stupid Stone Cold Law. He was abusing his power and Eric Bischiff is the one who will be making the decisions around here and that’s the bottom line coz Eric Bischoff says so. Coach laughs and tells Eric that’s not the reason he was out here for but he’s glad Bischoff told him some great news. Well he’s out here because he wants to know what Eric Bischoff will do about Smackdown’s lethal lottery this week. He winds Bischoff up by saying boss, didn’t you have this in WCW. Bischoff’s says that’s exactly right and mocks Heyman and Heyman should get some new material. Did Bischoff ever do a Raw Rumble? No because he is innovative. Coach asks Eric what if Paul ever ends up doing a Smackdown roulette? Bischoff talks about WCW and how Paul Heyman is not a creative genius. When Eric was running ECW he took all of ECW’s stars and put on a superior product, he made the ECW stars who were nobodies into stars in WCW. He will continue to come up with new material and will prove why Raw is always a far superior show than Smackdown. He doesn’t need to do what Austin did and show up on Smackdown, he will just put on better shows and better ppvs. Backlash is already shaping up to be an awesome ppv, for the first time ever the Intercontinental Title will be defended in a hell in a cell match. Over there on Smackdown, Paul Heyman can’t even control his own roster. Now that Austin’s gone he will show Heyman how a show should be run. Tonight he will make a big announcement by outdoing Smackdown’s lethal lottery tournament.

Match 2
10 Man Tag Team Match
La Resistance and The World’s Greatest Tag Team vs The Dudleys, Jindrak & Cade

Good back and forth action with the heels in control at the start of the match. Mid-way into the match Buh Buh and Haas tag in and Buh Buh hits Haas with a few punches followed by an irish whip and clothesline. He takes a tag to D-Von and D-Von hits a neckbreaker on Haas for a near fall because Shelton breaks up the cover. The Dudleys go for a 3D and Shelton stops it and we get a big brawl in the ring between the heels and the faces. Some of the stars are battling on the outside while Haas and Spike continue the match in the squared circle. Shelton slips back in the ring and level Spike with a kick to the face and Haas pins Spike for the 3 count to win the match.
Winners: La Resistance & The World’s Greatest Tag Team


After the match the brawl continues on with the WGTT escaping as The Dudleys hit a 3D on Sylvian Grenier. The Dudleys motion for the tag team belts.

Backstage Chris Jericho Interview. Coach walks by and tells Grisham that he’s got this. He mocks Jericho and asks Jericho how it will feel like when Trish and Christian rub salt in Jericho’s wounds tonight when they have the Sex celebration in the ring? Jericho talked about how Trish and Christian got one over him at WrestleMania and tonight they want to embarrass him further by having sex in the ring. Jericho issues a challenge to Christian at Backlash. They can have all the fun they want but at Backlash he will get his revenge.

Match 3
World Title Match
Chris Benoit (c) vs Matt Hardy

Benoit and Hardy exchange some armbars and other grappling maneuvers, including a couple of roll ups. Benoit chops away at Hardy and ducks a clothesline from Hardy and ends up hitting five german suplexes on Hardy. Benoit goes for the headbutt and Hardy moves out the way. Shawn Michaels is shown watching the match on a monitor. Hardy stomps away at Benoit and hits a legdrop from the second rope. Hardy hits a side effect and Benoit kicks out at two. Hardy goes for the twist of fate but Benoit counters into a crossface and Hardy taps out.
Winner: Chris Benoit


Backstage Evolution storm into Bischoff’s office and HHH wants Rock at Backlash. HHH blames Rock for putting him out the title picture when he deserves to be in. He’s still not had his rematch against Benoit but at Backlash once he’s done with the Rock, Bischoff must give HHH the title shot he truly deserves. Bischoff agreed.



Match 4
Jazz vs Lita

A fairly short match, this was ok for what it was. Lita misses a top rope moonsault and Jazz follows up with a piledriver and covers Lita for the three count.
Winner: Jazz


Backstage Matt Hardy is in his locker room and he’s upset. Coach approaches Matt and tells Matt that he did a good job but he wanted to remind Matt that next week Eugene will be here and Matt has to live up to his promise. Matt tells him that he will now think about it. Coach is like what do you mean think about it, you agreed. Matt responds back by telling Coach he had his title shot and lost. Now if he takes someone under his wing, he will end up concentrating on that guy and his opportunity for another title shot and a singles run will be damaged. Coach tried to get Hardy to change his mind and warned him not to cross the boss and next week Matt's assignment is to make Eugene his Mattitude follower. If he doesn’t there will be serious consequences.

Trish and Christian SEX Celebration


Trish and Jericho come out. Christian says they haven’t had sex since WrestleMania and they’re saving the celebration for tonight instead. They were going to do this at the end of the show to send the fans home happy but they couldn’t resist because what they will do now, they will continue off later on in their hotel. They didn’t want the peeps to wait that long. Trish talked about how Jericho wanted to nail her but couldn't and Jericho can never have her. She tells Christian lets get straight into this. They start making out and then started disrobing.





They get into the bed and into the covers and Christian removes Trish's bra and throws it near the announce table and King gets excited. Chris Jericho’s music hits as he runs down to the ring to put a stop to this. Christian gets out of the bed and gets tackled down by Jericho. Christian escapes and ran up the ramp. Trish has remained in the bed for the entire time because she’s completely naked. Jericho taunted Christian from the ring and notices that Trish is naked under the covers of the bed as he peaks under the covers and says omg what an amazing sight. He smiles and likes what he saw. He threatens Christian that he’s going to pull back the covers. He asks the crowd should he go for it. HUGE cheer from the crowd. Or should he take off the cover of the bed, MASSIVE OVATION from the crowd. Jericho says this is the woman he once loved but now she's turned into a slut who's worse than Stephanie McMahon. He is not going to have sex with Trish but he can show the whole wide world Trish's T & A. Trish who's clutching the blanket to hide her boobs from the audience.

Jericho taunts Christian and shouts come on you creepy little bastard get in here and try to stop me. Eric Bischoff’s music hits and calls security. Jericho threatens Bischoff if they step in he will take off the cover of the bed and Trish will be exposed. Bischoff threatens Jericho if he does not hand himself over to security then he will be fired on the spot. Jericho agrees to hand himself over but on one condition, he wants his rematch from WrestleMania against Christian at Backlash. Bischoff agrees and Jericho smiles and hands himself over and security escort Jericho out. Coach runs down with a towel in his hand and passes it to Trish. Trish covers her with a towel and Coach gets Trish out of there as soon as possible. Fans booed the hell out of Coach. Jericho is loving it and he’s happy. Trish has been humiliated by Jericho.

RAW cuts backstage, where Lance Storm is standing by. Todd Grisham asks him will he ever win a match before his retirement. Storm believes he definitely will and even hoped that Bischoff will give him a ppv match at Backlash. He is serious about retiring, he’s become a joke on Raw. He could have gone to Smackdown but decided not too. He wants his last few weeks on Raw to be successful. Ric Flair shows up and confronts Storm. Flair wanted to talk about his own match but he just heard what Storm said and calls Storm weak and a quitter. Tonight Evolution's Randy Orton beat him. He mocked Storm and calls him pathetic for retiring at such a young age, when Flair who’s still in his fifties styling and profiling and he's still going strong whoo. Flair slaps Storm and tells him maybe that slap will knock some sense into him and he will probably end up winning a match before his retirement. Maybe that slap will motivate him whoooo. Flair had a grin on his face and walked off and Storm just walked away.

Match 5
Ric Flair vs Mick Foley

Lock up and some counters to begin, Flair chops away at Foley and whoo’s him. Foley gets his sock out and starts chopping away at Flair with the sock and Flair bails out of the ring. Foley goes after Flair and they brawl outside but make it back inside before the ten count. Flair gets a kneedrop and gets a headlock on Foley. Foley powers out and breaks out of it and takes Flair down with a clothesline. He mocks Flair by doing the Flair strut. Foley backdrops Flair over the top rope. Mid-way into the match Flair is back in control and chops away again at Foley. Flair slams Foley down and goes to the top but this never works as Foley gets back up and knocks Flair off the top rope. Near the end of the match Flair low blows Foley and the ref calls for the bell. Flair goes for the figure four and Foley grabs his sock again and fights out of it and gives Flair the mandible claw.
Winner: Mick Foley by Disqualification


Evolution run down to ringside as Foley starts to fight Orton and HHH off but Foley walks into a Batista spinebuster. Orton proceeds to hit an RKO on Foley followed quickly by a Batista Bomb. They are doing some serious damage to Foley. Evolution continue to beat down Foley. HHH grabs the mic and instructs Orton grab a sledgehammer from underneath the ring. Orton levels Foley with the sledge hammer. HHH taunts Foley and says Come on Mick, where’s your saviour Rock. He made the right decision not to show up tonight because if he was out here this would have been his fate. Foley was busted open and bloodied as Evolution continued the assault ending with a Pedigree by HHH. Orton yells and taunts Foley by saying his career will be over at Backlash. Evolution pose in the ring.

A vignette is aired for William Regal, he is making his return to the WWE next week on Raw. Raw cuts backstage where Eric Bischoff is shouting down the phone to what sounds like Paul Heyman. They are discussing a trade but they couldn't yet come to an agreement because Bischoff was badmouthing Heyman for stealing his concept that he used in WCW. Heyman fired back with his own insults and talked about how Bischoff stole ECW talent to make Nitro into a better show. Now he will take more stars from Raw. Bischoff said Heyman can't do that, and it will be done in a fair way, a trade. Bischoff said he will not give his best stars away because Raw is the #1 show. Heyman insults Eric by saying is this what Raw has now become, a sex gone bad show. Heyman laughs and says tune in to Smackdown to see the very best of wrestling. Bischoff tells Heyman to tune into Raw right now because up next he’s going to outdo Heyman’s Smackdown Lethal Lottery announcement.

Bischoff's announcement

Eric Bischoff comes down and introduces Shawn Michaels. Bischoff then introduces the world champion Chris Benoit. Bischoff has called them out here to let them know which match they will compete in at Backlash. He had a lot of ideas in mind and one of the matches was going to be a match Shawn made legendary at WrestleMania X, a ladder match. Then he had another match in mind which Benoit excels in and that’s a submission match. However since Heyman is doing a tournament over the next 3 weeks by stealing a concept he used in WCW, he’s going to outdo Smackdown’s Lethal Lottery Tournament by coming up with a blockbuster match for the main event at Backlash. He says this time it'll be the match of all matches, a match that will be so legendary and no outside interferences at all. HBK calls himself the icon, the showstopper, the headliner, the main event and Benoit calls himself the best wrestler in the world today. Well we will find out if they can go the distance. At Backlash that blockbuster match is an Iron Man Match. He says you put 60 minutes on the clock and two men in a ring and at the end of the 60 minutes, the man with the most falls wins. Bischoff wishes them luck and drops the mic down and leaves.

Benoit grabs the mic as HBK requests another mic. HBK says he wasn’t expecting this and it caught him by surprise but this announcement surely excites him. He’s been there before when he won the first ever Iron Man Match by defeating Canada’s Bret Hart to become the champion for the first time. Then the previous Iron Man Match he was the referee so he knows all about the Iron Man Match. Since the Rumble he’s been robbed out of the title but at Backlash the showstopper will stop Benoit’s show. You talk about conditioning and if he can still go the distance, he believes he can. He may not be faster as he used to be but he can still go the distance. The four years he spent out, doctors told him he was done but miraculously there was hope and he was back and he ended up becoming champion again. Now at Backlash with HHH out of the picture and no outside interferences we will truly find out who deserves to be the best. He reminds Benoit that he holds a victory over him a month ago and he has the experience and the victory over Benoit. As much as he respects him and as much as he deserves it, he’s in his place and he’s going to become the champion again. Michaels knows that the fans of Canada hate him but he’s got a good record there because everytime he goes there he always gets one over the fans. Then he talks about Benoit’s hero The Dynamite Kid and tells Benoit that Dynamite’s former partner The British Bulldog wrestled him back in 1997 in his own backyard and HBK put one over him as well to become the first ever grand slam champion. Point is... no matter what country he goes, it doesn’t matter to him because HBK will always come out on top. He is the icon, the showstopper, the headliner and the main event.

Benoit then responded by telling Michaels to not underestimate him. Benoit talks about his days when he trained in the dungeon. He's worked so many years to get to the top and he’s not going to let Michaels cut his reign short. He’s a fighting champion and he’s willing to take on all comers. He’s willing to go the distance and he will not let his fans down in his country. For weeks Michaels has been claiming that he beat him a month ago on Raw and then at WrestleMania, HHH was the one that tapped and not him. Anyone can have a lucky night and catch a fall but now that they’re competing in an Iron Man Match he will ensure that he will beat him not once but many times. Now at this time in 2004 he is the best. He’s wrestled all over the world and wrestled many great wrestlers but when he wrestled Shawn last month, he knew that he was one of the best. He will walk into his hometown as champion and will walk out as champion. Prove me wrong Shawn Michaels. Benoit’s music hits as he holds up the world title in the air. HBK extends his hand to Benoit for a handshake as both men shake hands as Raw comes to a close.

WWE News and Notes


-Paul Heyman has taken action on Edge by removing Edge from the lethal lottery tournament and he is barred from making an appearance on Smackdown this week. On Raw, Eric Bischoff told Paul Heyman that Heyman can't even control his stars and now Heyman has taken action on Edge.

-Eric Bischoff is not going to suspend Chris Jericho for ruining the live sex celebration segment. We will see what Bischoff has in store for Jericho on Raw next week.

-Lance Storm could possibly end up having a match at Backlash. The card is already stacked but the creative team could possibly give Storm a match, therefore the women’s match could be bumped to Heat.

-The creative team have decided not to pair up Matt Hardy with Eugene. On Raw expect Hardy to turn down Bischoff’s request and this may lead to Matt Hardy turning face soon. Or Matt could be traded to Smackdown and remains a heel. William Regal is now going to become Eugene's manager as Regal is expected to be back in the WWE next week in a non wrestling role. Regal should be cleared to wrestle by mid-June.

Smackdown Preview
April 1, 2004


Tonight for the first time ever in the WWE, Smackdown presents to you the lethal lottery tournament. Six matches will take place tonight. The possibilities of matchups involving 24 of Smackdown’s brightest stars are indeed fascinating. Their names will be drawn random at the lethal lottery. We can find some unique tag team combinations, for example we could see The Undertaker and Kane on the same team or we could even see the tag team champions Booker T and RVD pitted against each other. Regardless of the team mates they need to work as a team, win their tag team match to advance on to a battle royal next week on Smackdown.. Once the field is set for the battle royal it’s every man for himself. The last two remaining will compete in a match the following week. The winner becomes the #1 contender for the WWE Title and would receive a title shot against the WWE Champion Eddie Guerrero at Judgment Day.

If partners are pitted against each other, will they remain as a team by the end of the night? What other developments will take place tonight on Smackdown. To find out tune in to Smackdown.

WWE Smackdown
April 1, 2004


The announcers welcome us to the show as tonight for the first time ever Smackdown brings to you the Lethal Lottery. Tazz and Cole discuss the rules. There will be 6 matches. Each match has a 10 minute time limit. A time limit draw would eliminate both teams. Plus both teams can be eliminated if the match ends in a double dq or double count out. Time is very critical for each match. The stars are in two separate dressing rooms(heel and faces) awaiting their name to be called. When they are called they will find out who their partner will be and then with their partners they will compete in a tag match. The winners will advance to a battle royal next week. Not many backstage segments tonight.

Lets take you to the man who will be drawing the names, the General Manager Paul Heyman. He will be assisted by Torrie Wilson and Dawn Marie. Heyman, Torrie and Dawn are on the stage to draw the names for the tag matches. Paul Heyman who is still in a neck brace welcomes the fans to the show. First of all before we get underway he wants to make an announcement. Edge was going to be included in the tournament but APRIL FOOLS, he's decided to suspend Edge for two weeks for his actions last week therefore he has been removed from the lethal lottery tournament. Big Show is replacing Edge in the tournament. Big Show had his opportunity last week and lost but as Edge is suspended, Big Show is getting another chance. Heyman does not want Big Show coming after him again so that’s why he’s giving him another chance and to be honest he doesn’t like it at all. Heyman asks the ladies to do the drawings and he will call out the names of the stars.


They draw John Cena’s name first as he makes his way out. His partner is Johnny Nitro and they will take on Rikishi and A-Train.

Match 1
John Cena and Johnny Nitro vs Rikishi and A-Train

So here we go and the first match gets underway. Tazz explained that we could possibly get a lot of strange pairings tonight. All the stars can do is be in shape and hope they get the luck of the draw because you can’t do any preparation. That’s because they have no idea who their partner’s gonna be whether they like em or dislike em. Nitro taunts Cena and wants to start. A-Train and Rikishi start arguing over who should start and Rikishi decides to step in. Nitro kicks away at Rikishi but Rikishi shoves him down. Rikishi outpowered Nitro and Nitro ends up tagging Cena. Cena and Rikishi shake hands and they go at it. Rikishi catches Cena with a samoan drop and tags in A-Train. Cena was dominated for the first few minutes in which A-Train hit some pretty offensive moves on Cena like the gorilla press slam, hard clothesline and a derailer and Cena kicked out at two. Rikishi wanted to tag in but Train told him he’s got this. A-Train and Rikishi started arguing which allowed Cena to take over and he tagged in Nitro. Nitro tried to slam A-Train but he blocked it and body slammed Nitro. A-Train finally tagged Rikishi who comes in and legdrops Nitro. Rikishi went for the banzai drop. Cena runs in and pulls Nitro out the way and Rikishi falls down. Nitro tagged Cena and Cena cleans house. Cena hits the five knuckle shuffle on A-Train. Near the end A-Train and Rikishi started arguing again Rikishi ended up nailing his own partner with a superkick and Cena finished A-Train off with the FU. Cena made the cover and got the 3 count to advance.
Winners: John Cena and Johnny Nitro


Heyman explained that for the past three week's he’s been attacked but on Raw Bischoff has managed to keep his roster under control. He hoped that tonight he gets away with it because it’s about time he was respected. He demands respect. He is giving everyone on the roster even the ones who turned on him an opportunity to become the #1 contender. He wants Smackdown to be the best brand and wants to show Eric Bischoff that Smackdown puts on better matches and produces better ppvs. He is looking to trade some stars from Smackdown over to Raw to bring in frustrated performers from Raw. He hopes that he can work out a deal with Bischoff soon.

Now moving on to the next match, the ladies draw out the next names. This is interesting as we have tag team partners on opposite sides as Paul London and Shannon Moore take on Kidman and The Hurricane. London and Kidman have been teaming up recently and now they are on opposing teams and Helms and Moore have been teaming up ever since Helms came to Smackdown.

Match 2
Paul London and Shannon Moore vs Kidman and The Hurricane




Both teams are fan favourites. Kidman and Helms start it off as they trade holds. Kidman tags in London. London was quick on the offense, hitting some quick arm drags and leg sweeps to get Helms off his feet. This was a great fast paced match with lots of near falls. Moore flips out of a back suplex and dropkicks Kidman who tags in The Hurricane. Partners going at it. Helms dominates but Moore comes back with dropkick followed by a head scissors. Moore and Helms end up tagging London and Kidman and now London and Kidman go at it. London takes Kidman down with a snapmare and Kidman comes back with an bulldog. London comes back with a forearm and a spinning wheel kick. London leaps over Kidman and hits him with a jumping thrust kick. Kidman tags in Helms and Helms takes London down with a chokeslam. Helms hits the eye of the hurricane and goes for the pin but Kidman ends up making the save and breaks up the pin. Hurricane’s upset about the save and starts arguing with Kidman. Hurricane shoves Kidman, Kidman shoves him back and Helms hits the shining wizard on Kidman. London gets in and now it’s breaking loose and they start hammering away at each other. Moore comes in and hits a spinning kick on Kidman, London takes down Hurricane. This causes the whole thing to break down out to the floor. Moore sends Kidman out and springboard backflips onto him and the ref makes the count. All four men get counted out and both teams are eliminated.
Result: DOUBLE COUNT OUT, BOTH TEAMS ARE ELIMINATED


Both teams demand sudden death over time but with the teams being switched around so they can team with their actual partners. Heyman tells them too bad, he’s not going to give them sudden time overtime. They knew the rules, they should have co-existed as a team, they had their chance and they blew it. They can settle this next week when they can team with their actual partners but not tonight. He tells them both to get the hell out of here. Heyman said he is not changing the rules, nor is he adding any NO dq stipulations. If you are dq’ed, counted out, or the time limit expires then you are eliminated. If anyone is not satisfied with their partner and they decide to threaten him then he will remove them from the tournament.

Up next in the draw, the ladies do the draw and we get a match between Val Venis and Jamie Noble vs Scotty 2 Hotty and Nunzio. This will be Val’s first match on Smackdown since moving from Raw.

Match 3
Val Venis & Jamie Noble vs Scotty 2 Hotty & Nunzio

Val cut a promo in the ring and said from now on he's going to make a huge impact on Smackdown. This was a quick match but a good contest. Cole points out that Stamboli and Chuck are injured and that's the reason why they are not participating in this tournament. Both teams worked well together. Near the end of the match Scotty went for the worm on Noble but Val comes in and hits a Russian leg sweep on Scotty. Noble made the tag to Val and Val finished off Scotty with the money shot to win the match. Impressive win for Val and Noble. Val is back to winning ways and this is a great start for him on Smackdown.
Winners: Val Venis and Jamie Noble


The announcers update us on Kurt Angle’s status and he is having neck surgery. They are not sure when he will be back.

Josh Matthews interviews RVD and Booker T. Matthews asks them that they have yet to be drawn and there could be a possibility that they could end up avoiding each other. Or they could end up on the same team or even face each other. RVD hoped that they would either be on the same team or avoid each other because recently they’ve had their problems but now that they’ve solved it, they don’t want to be on opposing sides to increase their problems. So he hoped that the draw favours them. Booker T said it’s a slim chance that they would be in the same match and he thinks they will avoid each other. Booker points out that he’s the most decorated star in the WWE and he’s never been WWE Champion. In the next three weeks he will become the #1 contender and go on to win the title at Judgment Day. Now can you dig that suckaaaaaa. RVD looks at Josh and says Whatever!!!


The draw continues on and The Big Show’s name has been drawn out. He makes his way down to the stage and laughs at Heyman and then walks off to the ring. Big Show's partner is Rhyno. Then we find out who their opponents are. It’s KANE. Kane makes his way down and he’s smiling as he waits to find out who his partner is. Dawn draws out the next name and she is shocked. Torrie goes over to Dawn and checks and Torrie is also shocked. Heyman finds out who it is and Heyman announces that Kane’s partner is .... THE UNDERTAKER. Heyman is terrified.

Match 4
The Big Show and Rhyno vs The Undertaker & Kane

A dong strikes the arena as the lights go out. Kane, Big Show and Rhyno are all furious and they are shitting it. Taker makes his long entrance but it’s cut short by Kane as he does not like the idea of teaming up by Taker. Kane meets Taker halfway down the ramp and starts brawling with Taker. Big Show orders the ref to start the bell so they win by count out but the ref is not going to count because Taker has not come inside the ring yet so he can’t begin the match, he hasn’t even rung the bell yet. Taker nails Kane with some right hands and Kane goes back in the ring. Paul Bearer stops Taker and show’s Taker the urn and instructs Taker to get along with his brother for just this match. They have to co-exist to get that shot at the WWE Title.


Taker is now inside the ring and the bell rings and Rhyno and Kane start this off. This was a decent power match. Kane used his strength to overpower Rhyno but Rhyno got in some good offense and tagged in Big Show. Big Show and Kane go at it. Kane refused to tag Taker but Taker ended up tagging himself in and took it to Rhyno and Big Show. Clothesline followed by snake eyes to Rhyno and then a big boot gets a two count only. Kane ended up tagging himself in and Taker gives Kane an evil look. Kane and Show hammer away at each other and Show backdrops Kane over the top rope. Kane gets back in and Kane and Big Show end up knocking each other out with a clothesline. Kane got back up first and was going to signal for a chokeslam but Taker tagged himself in, Show ends up tagging Rhyno. Kane nails Taker from behind. They start brawling and Taker sends up Kane over the top rope. Rhyno and Show double team Taker. Rhyno goes for the gore and ends up getting Big Show instead. Taker chokeslams Rhyno and pins him for the 3 count.
Winners: The Undertaker and Kane


Immediately Kane gets back in the ring and attacks Taker and chokeslams him. Kane quickly exits the ring before Undertaker can get to his feet. Taker sits up and Kane backs up the ramp grinning while Taker looks on angrily in the ring. Taker gets up and goes after Kane but Kane has managed to escape. Meanwhile, Rhyno is pissed that he lost and blames it on Big Show and he stomps away at Big Show. He goes for the gore but walks into a chokeslam. Show leaves the ring and goes to the stage and taunts Heyman and walks off.

A promo is aired for Judgment Day which takes place in May. The announcers discuss which team has worked well together. Well they’ve all had problems at some point during the match. Val Venis & Noble worked well and so did Cena and Nitro. The obvious team that didn’t work were the two teams that were eliminated by count out. They explain who’s advanced so far and the guys that didn’t make it. Now we have two more matches to go.

Torrie pulls out the next name and it is Funaki. Funaki is very excited and waits to see who his partner is. He finds out that his partner is Akio and Funaki was quite pleased with this. Akio comes out with Funaki to Funaki’s music. They will be facing Tajiri. Well this is interesting because Akio will be facing Tajiri here and they are a team. Tajiri makes his way down to the ring and the three Japanese wrestlers are in the ring. Tajiri shakes hands with Akio. Tajiri looks on to find out who his partner will be. Booker T is hoping that it’s him, he ends up getting up before the name is announced and it’s ............ JBL. JBL is laughing and he loves this. Booker and RVD look at each other and hope now that they don’t end up facing each other in the final match.

Match 5
Akio and Funaki vs Tajiri and JBL

JBL’s music hit’s as he comes down to the ring with a mic and briefcase. JBL wants his music to be stopped. JBL got some good heat on his way out. JBL says he's been out campaining all week and he's tired. Now he’s out here to prove a point and will prove why he is the smartest man on Smackdown. He’s grown up in this country and made a fortune. What greater success stories are there in America than him? He insults the fans telling them that they should look up to him and not boo him, he is their role model. He deserves a Great American award because he will show the fans why he cares about people will different cultures. JBL gets inside the ring and looks at the three Japanese stars.



He mocks them and asks them if they speak English and they just stare at him. He tries to get their attention by asking them if they can understand the English language or is he talking to three uneducated guys who have come to this country by taking advantage of this country. He orders them to bow at him and they bow at him. Last week he told the fans that he can buy his way to victory but there was no need for it because he wants to show everyone how much of a great wrestler he is. However the luck of the draw has shown that there is a need for money in this match. JBL continues to mock Tajiri, Akio and Funaki and told them that they are in need of money and in this briefcase he has $100,000. They’ve never seen as much money as this in their entire lives and tonight is their chance to become rich. JBL wants them to take the money and become rich only if Akio or Funaki lay down for him so he can pin them. JBL asks them if they understand what he means or does he have to repeat himself or demonstrate what he means. JBL lays down and points at Funaki that all he has to do is lay down so JBL will pin him and then Funaki can split the money with his Japanese friends. Paul Heyman cuts in and says that’s one of the most smartest ideas ever. JBL thanked Heyman and continued on talking and asked Funaki, the no 1 announcer if he can co-operate with him. Is Funaki going to work out a deal with JBL. All of them are in pure silence and JBL gets angry and continues to mock them. Then he says it’s people like them who come here to this country and don’t pay much tax. You guys have taken advantage of our country, you send all the money you earn back to Japan and look to people like him to have to support people like them. JBL says he can make their careers. JBL turns to his partner for the night Tajiri and asks him if he can instruct the other two to negotiate a deal here.Tajiri didn’t say anything but tells the ref to ring the bell and has a discussion in the corner with Funaki and Akio. They bow to JBL and JBL is smiling and looks like JBL has struck a deal. JBL says like he always does, what he says he does and what he wants he gets. Funaki drops down. JBL pins Funaki and the ref makes the count. 1...2....3... It is over JBL has advanced to the battle royal with Tajiri. This got JBL some real heat.
Winners: JBL and Tajiri


JBL grabs the mic and gets his briefcase and gets back in the ring and tells them that he lied and he fooled them. They do not deserve this money, he’s worked hard for this to earn this money and he just outsmarted them all. Funaki takes the mic and calls JBL a jackass. Huge pop from the crowd and Tajiri sprays mist in JBL’s eyes. Funaki grabs the briefcase and they all split the money and exit the ring and decide to give the fans some money. Huge pop from the crowd. JBL is furious. For all that time the Japanese stars were silent, JBL may have outsmarted them but in the end the Japanese stars got one over JBL.



Paul Heyman sets up a Hardcore match between Big Show and Rhyno for next week. Eddie Guerrero’s music hits as he comes out onto the stage and tells Heyman it doesn’t matter what Heyman does because he’s the champion. Heyman could do whatever he wants but one way or another Eddie will lie cheat or steal his way to victory. Since he’s the champion he would like to draw out the last four names, Heyman nods his head and leaves and lets Eddie draw out the names for the last match.

The draw is made and they draw out Rey Mysterio’s name. Rey waits to see who his partner is. His partner is RVD. Rey gives RVD a high five but RVD then looks at Booker. This means the tag team champs are going to face each other. RVD and Rey leave and Booker destroys a tv in the locker room. Booker is very angry. The last two names left are Chavo Guerrero and Booker T. Heyman thanks the divas for helping him pick the names as they all leave. Rey’s music hits as he comes down and goes and meets Eddie on the stage. They hug and Eddie makes his way to the back and leaves with the divas. RVD then comes out to the ring. Chavo comes out next accompanied by Chavo Classic. Booker T then comes out.

Main Event
Rey Mysterio and RVD vs Chavo Guerrero and Booker T



This was a good contest, Rey and Chavo start it off. They have a lot of chemistry and a lot of history. They trade holds, good back and forth action with lots of near falls and they hit some pretty big spots. Chavo goes for a powerbomb and Rey counters into a hurracarana pin and Chavo kicks out. Rey tags in RVD who goes after Chavo and hits him with some kicks. A rolling thunder gets two. He tags Rey back in and Rey dropkicks Chavo. Chavo came back and nailed a hurricanrana from the top, that almost got the three. Rey hit a springboard moonsault, while Chavo was still standing and Chavo kicked out at two. Eventually both men ended up tagging their partners and now it’s a showdown between the tag team champions.

The tag champs have a big staredown and they shake hands and go at it. They fight for two minutes and RVD tags Rey in and Booker and Rey fight it out. Booker stomps away at Rey and then picks him up and whips him into the ropes and goes for a kick and Rey ducks and rolls Booker up and gets a two count only. Booker takes Rey down with a spinebuster and gets a two only. Rey came back and took Booker off his feet following a hurricarana before scaling to the top rope and gets a flying body press. He covers and Chavo breaks it up. Near the end RVD is in the ring with Chavo but Chavo Classic ends up pulling down the ropes to knock RVD outside. Rey gets in and argues and Chavo attacks Rey. Rey is not the legal man but Chavo ends up tagging Booker who ends up hitting the axe kick on Rey. Booker does the spinaroonie. He’s wasting time taking too long celebrating and RVD gets inside the ring and rolls Booker up for the 3 count. Booker is shocked and he is livid. RVD and Rey advance.
Winners: Rey Mysterio and RVD



Booker gets back up and shoves RVD. He berates RVD. RVD was about to snap and Rey steps in to stop anything from going down between RVD and Booker. Rey wants them to shake hands and RVD extends his hand. Booker walks off without his tag title and shouts “I don’t need you sucka, I’m better than you.” Crowd boos Booker as he walks off. Booker walks out onto the ramp and nods his head and stares angrily at RVD as Smackdown comes to a close.

So the field has been set for the battle royal next week. The stars that have advanced to the battle royal are: John Cena, The Undertaker, RVD, Rey Mysterio, Kane, Val Venis, JBL, Tajiri, Jamie Noble and Johnny Nitro.

Smackdown Review:
Lethal Lottery is a great concept for the tournament I really like this idea and think you are going to do great things with it.

Match 1: Great opening contest for the Lethal Lottery. I am happy that Cena and Nitro picked up the win over Rikishi and A-Train

Match 2: This would definitely be great to watch with 4 highflying superstars. I am quite happy to see that the match ends up on the floor with the Double Count Out. I see this continuing as a feud over the next little while.

Match 3: Nothing special, but glad to see Val and Noble get the win.

Match 4: This is a blockbuster match between 4 super heavyweights. Of course you have to have the Brother s of Destruction win. I love the aftermath with Kane beating down his brother. I also like the tension between Rhyno and Big Show. This is heating up to be good.

Match 5: It makes sense that JBL and Tajiri get the win over Funaki and Akio.

Looking forward to the Hardcore Match next week with Rhyno and the Big Show

Main Event: Great win for Mysterio and RVD which leads to a pretty good conclusion for the Lethal Lottery. I like the Battle Royal coming up next week and hope that Kane would pick up the win, but it will probably be JBL.

Really great show you have this week for both RAW and Smackdown. You have a lot of great storylines developing.

Thanks for the review.



WWE Raw Preview
April 5, 2004


With less than two weeks to go before Backlash, the road to Backlash continues as The Rock will be making his return tonight on Raw. The Rock is here tonight to accept HHH’s challenge for Backlash. Will The Rock suffer the same fate as Mick Foley and fall victim to Evolution? Speaking of Mick Foley, will the hardcore legend return tonight to get his revenge on Evolution?

Last month Shawn Michaels and Chris Benoit teamed up to face Randy Orton and Batista. Benoit and Michaels couldn’t co-exist which lead to Orton and Batista winning the match. Now tonight they will team again as they will meet HHH and Ric Flair. Will Flair and HHH be victorious just like Orton and Batista or will Michaels and Benoit finally get along and defeat The Nature Boy and The Game.

Christian and Trish Stratus want payback from last week as Chris Jericho ruined their sex celebration. Tonight Christian and Trish team up to face Chris Jericho and a diva of his choice in a mixed tag match. Also Eugene will be making his WWE debut. All this and plenty more on Monday Night Raw.

Confirmed Matches
HHH and Ric Flair vs Chris Benoit and Shawn Michaels

WWE Raw
April 5, 2004



Raw opens with Eric Bischoff backstage and just when Bischoff is about to talk, Eugene appears. Eric just looks at him. Eugene has an action figure of the Ugandan Giant Kamala. Eugene introduces himself, repeating himself by saying “Hi, I’m Eugene.” Eric tells Eugene he’s not supposed to do that, he is going to introduce him. Bischoff introduces his nephew Eugene, he is a new special talent. Bischoff runs down the matches for tonight. Eugene is jumping around on the sofa and jumps on the table by doing a funny Kamala impression. Eric tries to get Eugene off the table and Eugene runs away and disappears. Eric nods his head. The Raw video package plays and the announcers welcome us to the show.

Match 1
Shelton Benjamin vs D-Von Dudley

Jim Ross informs us that next week Buh Buh will take on Charlie Haas. The Match starts off with D-Von getting the early advantage. Shelton comes back with a drop toe hold and then hits a crossbody which gets a two count only. Shelton goes for a sleeper and D-Von manages to escape. D-Von hits Shelton with a clothesline followed by a body slam. D-Von goes for a pin but Haas is distracting the referee. Buh Buh goes over and starts fighting with Haas. D-Von misses a charge and Shelton hits a T-bone suplex to pick up the win. Following the match Haas and Benjamin double team Buh Buh and mock The Dudleys by hitting the Dudleys 3D on Buh Buh. This is now the second week in a row that Haas and Benjamin have got one over the Dudleys.
Winner: Shelton Benjamin


Eric Bischoff is on the phone with Paul Heyman as they are discussing which stars should be involved in the trade and hopefully by the end of the week he will have new stars on Raw. Coach comes in and Bischoff hangs up. Coach wants to meet Eugene. Eugene is hiding somewhere so he tells Coach to go and look for him. Coach has never seen him so how will he recognise him? Eugene shows up and starts licking Coach, Bushwhacker style and Coach is like get the hell off me. Eugene runs away again and Coach looks at Eric and says “Boss, that is Eugene?” Eric isn't too pleased and nods his head.



Randy Orton’s music hits and the Intercontinental champ makes his way down to the ring. Orton requests a mic. Orton told the crowd that Foley is in for the biggest beating of his life at Backlash. Foley can never beat him one on one. Orton points out that Foley has never won a Hell in a Cell match and shows footage of Foley’s record in Hell in a Cell matches. Now at Backlash for the first time ever the Intercontinental title will be defended in a hell in a cell match. Since December he’s been the champ and he’s going to be champion for a very long time. He’s 24 years old, a third generation superstar. His accomplishments are endless. Orton continued to go on and on about how he is the best Intercontinental champion Raw has ever seen, when Dude Love appeared on the screen. The love shack segment returns for One Night Only. He talks about how he has his way with the ladies and he’s better looking than Orton but he doesn’t want his pretty face to be touched at Backlash. He’s not going to step in the ring with Orton at Backlash. Dude has a special guest. Mankind shows up and joins Dude. Mankind tells Dude that he would love to beat the hell out of Randy Orton but he knows someone else who is more sadistic than him and would love to tear Orton apart. HHH knows him really well. He’s wrestled around all over the world in the most violent matches ever, barbed wire match and many other violent matches. He is going to ruin Orton's face. Dude Love wants to know who this guy is and where is he. Mankind starts screaming and warns Randy Orton that at Backlash, he's not going to face Dude Love or Mankind. He's going to face Cactus Jack, bang bang!!!!


Cactus appears on the screen with a trash can and sends a message to Orton. Mankind, Dude and Cactus start laughing and Orton freaks out and flips out in the ring.

Matt Hardy was shown in Bischoff’s office as the two were talking. Matt simply can not take this assignment and would do anything else. He is a big star and he does not want to take someone under his wing. Bischoff yells at Hardy and does not classify Hardy as a big star at all. Has he ever been world champion, never. He’s not even won the Intercontinental title, King of the Ring, Royal Rumble or headlined a WrestleMania. Who the hell does he think he is. Does he think he’s bigger than the entire roster? He was also going to give Hardy a match at Backlash but now Hardy will not get a match at Backlash. Whatever plans he has tonight, they’re cancelled because he will be taking on Evolution’s Batista and that match is next.

Match 2
Batista vs Matt Hardy

Total Squash, Batista destroyed Hardy. Hardy doesn’t really get any offence at all. Hardy goes for a clothesline but Batista catches him and hits a big spinebuster. Batista lifts Hardy up on his shoulders and drops him down hard with the Batista Bomb. He goes for the cover and gets the pinfall.
Winner: Batista


Post-Match, Eric Bischoff comes out on the stage and tells Matt Hardy that he just wrestled his last match on Raw because he's just been traded to Smackdown.

In the back Bischoff tells Coach that he was going to ask Coach to take care of Eugene but Coach would not be able to control Eugene. William Regal shows up. Regal’s back. Coach and Bischoff are thinking why is Regal here. Regal explains why he is here. He can not compete in the ring till June as he’s not cleared to wrestle yet. He has experience as a commissioner but Raw doesn't need a commissioner because Eric is the GM and he's doing a great job. He also can’t be an announcer because there are plenty of announcers on Raw. So he is asking Bischoff to give him his job back so he can manage a star. Coach looks at Bischoff and smiles and says “You’ve got this boss” and walks away. Eric thanks Regal for solving his problem and Regal is wondering what problem. Eric explains to Regal that he has signed his nephew Eugene and he’s a special unique talent. He’s around here somewhere and he wants Regal to take him under his wing and guide him to the top. Regal doesn’t have a problem with it and would love to do it, as long as he’s got his job back. Bischoff warns Regal not to go to Smackdown because Heyman would ruin his career and would make his life miserable. He is losing control of his roster and over here on Raw, Eric values talent. He can make Regal a big fan favourite if he takes care of Eugene. Bischoff quickly explains the Matt Hardy situation and how he refused to accept this assignment and a few minutes ago he forced Hardy to go out there and compete against Batista. Batista destroyed him. Now Regal can’t compete in the ring till June and if Regal decides to be like Hardy then Regal will be going back in the ring very early, early as in tonight. Regal was like oh no.... he’s definitely taking this job, how difficult could it be. Eric is like, it’s easy and Regal can’t back out of it. They shaked hands and Eric asked Regal to go and look for Eugene, go and ask around and he will find him.

Chris Benoit and Shawn Michaels are shown heading to the ring in a split screen video. They team together against Ric Flair and HHH and that's next!


Match 3
Shawn Michaels and Chris Benoit vs Ric Flair and HHH




Jim Ross recaps the events leading up the the tag match. Since WrestleMania, Benoit and Michaels have got the upper hand over Evolution. A few weeks ago Michaels defeated HHH and Benoit defeated Flair. Then the big 8 man tag victory over Evolution. They also point out that the last time Benoit and HBK teamed up as a team was a month ago when they faced Batista and Orton and they lost. So now they are teaming again to face the other two members of Evolution. They simply couldn’t co exist the last time they teamed up but tonight they have to. This was a great match, good back and forth action with plenty of near falls. Michaels and Benoit worked well as a team at the start getting the early advantage but then Flair and HHH take over and gain control of the match making quick tags as they stopped Michaels from making a tag to Benoit. Finally Michaels made the hot tag and Benoit cleans house, chopping away at Flair. Then HHH gets in and the heels are back in control again. HBK then spends the majority of the match on the apron, leaving Benoit to fight HHH and Flair by himself with HHH and Flair picking Benoit apart. Benoit puts up a great fight but Michaels is not showing any signs of helping his partner out. Finally Michaels went to save Benoit but HHH takes Michaels down with a clothesline. The ref sends Michaels back to his corner. Benoit is in real trouble, he looks for a tag and Evolution stop Benoit from making the tag. HBK gets frustrated and starts brawling with Flair. We get a big brawl in the ring and Michaels accidently superkicks Benoit in the face. Flair clotheslines Michaels on the floor. HHH pins Benoit for the three count.
Winners: HHH and Ric Flair


Todd Grisham was standing backstage with Shawn Michaels. Michaels says it's not his fault, it was an accident. Benoit shows up and he’s furious. He wants an explanation why Michaels kicked him in the face. They argue for a bit and then Benoit shoves HBK. HBK shoves him back and Benoit tackles HBK. Benoit gets Michaels in the crossface and Michaels taps. Referees and officials get Benoit off Michaels. Michaels is back up and charges at Benoit and they are pulled apart by refs and officials. Eric Bischoff shows up and tells them to stop it. He’s giving them the rest of the night off and next week they will not be competing in a match. They need the rest, he wants them to be in top condition for the Iron Man Match. They will be there on Raw next week for one more face to face confrontation but Bischoff issues a ruling that they can’t touch each other before Backlash.

Match 4
Non title match
Victoria vs Molly

This is a rematch from WrestleMania. Jazz and Teddy Long came out to the stage and watched the match. Good back and forth match between these two ladies. Victoria goes for the widows peak, Jazz runs down and distracts Victoria. Molly slips out and rolls Victoria up for the three count. Post –Match Jazz gets inside the ring and stomps away at Victoria. Victoria comes back and clotheslines Jazz and throws her over the top rope. Jazz just stares at Victoria while she walks up the ramp.
Winner: Molly Holly


Backstage Regal is looking for Eugene, he can’t find him and bumps into Stacey Keibler and asks her if she’s seen Eugene and if she knows where he is. She has no idea where he is because she has also yet to meet him. Regal continues his search as we go to our next match.

Match 5
Lance Storm vs Rene Dupree

Rene comes out alone. Rene cuts a promo at the start of the match and mocks Lance Storm. He thinks Storm is so easy to beat that he doesn’t need Conway and Grenier to be out here at ringside with him. Quick match with Storm getting the early advantage only for Dupree to come back and gain control. During the match Eugene comes out to ringside and starts running around outside the ring. Dupree is distracted and Storm rolls him up. Storm celebrates as if he’s won the world title. It’s Storm first win in many months. Eugene runs away all the way to the back.
Winner: Lance Storm


In the back Lance Storm is being interviewed and he feels good. He can now retire in style but still hopes to be part of Backlash. Ric Flair shows up and confront Storm telling him that still wasn’t good enough. Look at what the nature boy did tonight, he also won but his team defeated a former world champion and the current champion. Storm challenges Flair to a match next week on Raw and will prove that this win tonight is not a fluke. He’s very confident that he will defeat Ric Flair. Flair laughs and does not consider Storm in his league. Now if Storm wasn’t retiring he would have asked Storm to pick up more wins so that he can be on that level to face Flair, however as Storm is retiring soon, Flair accepts the challenge. Storm talks about Backlash and how Flair also doesn’t have a match. If Storm beats him next week then they should go at it again at Backlash. Flair agrees but promises to beat Storm next week on Raw and then he will humiliate Storm in his country at Backlash. Whooo!!!

Match 6
Mixed Tag Match
Christian and Trish Stratus vs Chris Jericho and Gail Kim




Jericho comes out with a mic in his hand. He enjoyed what he did last week and he will continue to humiliate Trish and Christian. Jericho introduces his partner for one night only, she’s also from Canada and she’s making her return and his partner is Gail Kim. Jericho and Christian to start things off in this mixed tag team match. Finally Jericho can get his hands on Christian. After some back and forth action, Christian tags in Trish and Jericho tags in Gail Kim. Trish gains the early advantage by taking Gail down with a clothesline. Gail comes back with a dropkick. Trish regains control and tags in Christian so Jericho has to automatically go in and he can not fight Trish. Jericho has the match won as he goes for the walls of Jericho and Trish steps in and slaps Jericho in the face. Jericho chases Trish around the ring and Gail Kim takes care of Trish and Christian stomps away at Jericho. Trish is tagged back in and now Gail has to go in. Back and forth action again which ended with Gail catching Trish with a hurricarana and pins her for the three count. Jericho and Gail celebrate in the ring.
Winners: Chris Jericho and Gail Kim



Regal is shown in search of Eugene and finally finds him and realises what mess he’s gotten himself into. He looks at Eugene and Regal is appauled to learn that Eugene is retarded. Eugene starts acting like Kamala and then acts like The Bushwhackers by licking Regal. Regal knows this isn’t going to be easy but he can’t back out of it. If he wants to keep his job he has to take care of Eugene.

Trish and Christian storm into Bischoff’s office and Trish complains that she was not prepared for Gail Kim. She expected Lita or Stacey Keibler, yet Bischoff still hasn’t taken any action on Jericho. Bischoff tells her to calm down. He has an idea for next week just to soften up Jericho for Backlash. Next week Jericho will be running the gauntlet against La Resistance. Christian and Trish had a big smile on their face and thanked Bischoff.


HHH comes down to the ring without Evolution. HHH has a big smile on his face and cuts a promo where he talked about how he was the greatest wrestler on the planet. Tonight he pinned Chris Benoit and that shows that he is better than him, he deserves his rematch and he will get it once he is done with The Rock at Backlash. The main reason he’s out here because Rock has still not showed up and HHH doesn’t know whether he will even have a match at Backlash because Rock has yet to accept. Maybe Rock is too scared to show up, he’s packed his bags for Hollywood because he didn’t want to suffer the same fate as his friend Mick Foley. That’s why Foley was also not man enough to show up tonight, he tried to threaten Orton by appearing on the screen but Randy will take care of Cactus Jack. HHH encouraged Orton to finish Cactus off once and for all. Orton has been watching video tapes of Foley’s matches and he knows what to do. Foley has a horrible record in Hell in a Cell matches and at Backlash Orton is going to put Foley out of the WWE for good.


HHH started insulting the fans and asked where is their saviour. Rock promised to show up tonight but HHH has been waiting all night and Rock is still not here. Suddenly Rock’s music hits and The Rock is finally here and comes out to a great ovation. Rock gets a mic and starts running down HHH with his usual insults. Rock accepts HHH’s challenge at Backlash.



HHH fires back and tells Rock that he(HHH) was always a bigger star and was better than him. He’s won more titles than him and every year he’s winning the big one. When was the last time Rock won it? 2 years ago and then Rock decided to pack his bags and go to Hollywood. Then he came back and left and then came back again for his friend Mick Foley. HHH blames Rock for costing him the opportunity of getting back his world title. HHH believes he should be in the main event at Backlash, he should be wrestling in the Iron Man Match. Speaking of Iron Man Matches, the last iron man match was four years ago and HHH kicked Rock’s ass to win back his title. Rock fires back and tells HHH that if you want to go back and discuss history then let the Rock tell you about how he first won the IC Title. He beat HHH to win the title. Rock became bigger than HHH in 1998 and The Nation was kicking DX’s ass all over in 1998. Rock went on to become a main eventer before HHH, he won the WWE Title before HHH. He headlined WrestleMania before HHH. While Rock was always the bigger star in the Corporation, HHH was just a simple sidekick to the great one in the Corporation. Rock was already a 3 time WWE Champion when HHH first ended up winning the WWE Title. It took Rock two years to win the WWE Title and it took HHH four. The last time they went at it on ppv, he whooped HHH’s ass at SummerSlam in a triple threat match and retained his title but now enough of the past. Rock talks about the present and Rock guarantees to whoop HHH’s ass at Backlash. HHH kicks Rock in the gut and they start brawling. Rock sends HHH over the top rope.

Evolution come down and corner the Rock. Rock charges at them and knocks down Flair and Orton but the numbers game plays up and Evolution beat down The Rock. Evolution continue the assault as HHH is signalling for the pedigree when suddenly Cactus Jack’s music hits. Cactus has a baseball bat on him wrapped up in barbed wire. Cactus storms in the ring and nails Flair with it. Rock is back up and Rock and Sock clean house. It ends with Foley nailing Orton with the barbed wire and sends him over the top rope. Rock hits HHH with a rock bottom. Rock goes for the Rock Bottom but Batista manages to pull HHH out. Evolution retreat to the ramp as Rock and Cactus Jack celebrate in the ring and Raw comes to a close.
