WWE Smackdown Preview
April 8, 2004



Tonight on Smackdown, the lethal lottery tournament continues as ten superstars compete in an over the top battle royal. The winners of last week’s tag team matches have now advanced to a battle royal with the final 2 going on to compete in a #1 contenders match on next week’s Smackdown. The ten stars that are competing in the battle royal are John Cena, The Undertaker, RVD, Rey Mysterio, Kane, Val Venis, JBL, Tajiri, Jamie Noble and Johnny Nitro. Which two stars will win the battle royal tonight?

As for the stars that are not competing in the battle royal tonight, we will see Big Show taking on Rhyno in a hardcore match. Last week Rhyno and Big Show were on the same team but could not co-exist and were eliminated from the tournament. Will Rhyno be able to stop The Big Show or will Show continue to prove his dominance on Smackdown?

Also last week two teams ended up not teaming together as they were on opposing teams. Tonight Paul London will be teaming with his tag team partner Billy Kidman as they take on The Hurricane and his tag team partner Shannon Moore.

Matt Hardy has been traded to Smackdown and he will be making an appearance on Smackdown tonight. Hardy isn't the only Raw superstar that was traded to Smackdown, this week we will find out who else has joined the Smackdown roster.

Booker T was very upset last week when he was pinned by his tag team partner RVD. What will Booker T have to say tonight? To find out tune in to Smackdown

Confirmed Matches
2nd Round of the Lethal Lottery Tournament: 10 Man Battle Royal

WWE Smackdown
April 8, 2004



Smackdown opens with Paul Heyman backstage in his office with Dawn Marie. Paul welcomes us to Smackdown and tonight is Round 2 of the lethal lottery tournament. The fans can’t have their champion not in action again so he is going give the stars who were eliminated from the tournament last week a second chance. Dawn Marie will pull a name out from the tumbler and that star will face Eddie Guerrero tonight for the WWE Title. Heyman makes sure to note that Big Show’s name will not be in the tumbler because Show already had his opportunity against Eddie and lost. Last week he blew it again by losing in the tournament. Dawn reaches into the tumbler and pulls out a ball and we find out that Chavo Guerrero will receive the title shot against Eddie later on. Paul then explained that has signed some stars from Raw and we will see them tonight on Smackdown and one of them will be in action right now. The Smackdown video package plays and the announcers welcome us to the show.

Match 1
Nunzio vs Spike Dudley

Nunzio comes out to the ring for his match and requests a mic. He points out that his partners Chuck and Johnny the Bull have been traded to Raw and now he’s by himself. He could have gone to Raw but he wants to stay here on Smackdown so he can win the cruiserweight title. He’s never won it but he hopes this year he will win the belt. He doesn’t know who his opponent is that has been traded from Raw and waits to find out who it is. Spike Dudley’s music hits and it’s Spike who has been traded to Smackdown. This was a nice opening contest. Nunzio dominates the match but Spike makes a comeback and hits the Dudley Dog to win the match.
Winner: Spike Dudley


Booker T is walking in the building and bumps into 2 Cool. 2 Cool explain that they lost the belts at WrestleMania to RVD and Booker T but you don’t see them complaining. Despite losing at WM and also losing on Smackdown against RVD and Booker they are still together. They have each others backs and both of them are eliminated from the tournament. Even tonight their name was not drawn out for another opportunity but they’re not complaining. They want Booker to support RVD tonight in the battle royal and not be mad at RVD for what occurred last week. Booker starts talking trash to 2 Cool and told them not to interfere in their business. A year ago at WM19, Booker T was challenging for the world title. Now teaming with RVD has hurt his career, he is clearly the bigger star of the team, Being a tag team champion is a step down for him when he should clearly be challenging for the belt. This was one of the main reasons why he was held down in WCW. He was winning tag team belts and when he moved away from that, he found more success as a singles star. It should have been him who should be competing in the battle royal tonight, not RVD. Now he’s even more pissed off that his name did not come out in the draw to face Eddie. He mocks Rikishi and talked about how Rikishi was once important when he left 2 Cool and became a bad man. He was in main events but then Rikishi went back to being a dancing fool again and never saw the main event scene again.So he doesn’t want wrong advice from a fat man. This really pissed Rikishi off and Rikishi told Booker that he will back his ass up in the ring in Booker’s face lol. Rikishi challenged Booker to a match later on and Booker accepted Rikishi’s challenge.

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

This was a good back and fourth tag team match, which was full of tons of quick tags and cool spots with many near falls. In the end London rolls Moore up with an inside cradle for the three count to win the match.
Winners: Paul London and Billy Kidman


Backstage Mark Jindrak is in Paul Heyman’s office. Jindrak has been traded to Smackdown. Paul welcomes Mark to Smackdown. Jindrak talks about his run on Raw as a tag team performer but now has the opportunity to shine on Smackdown as a singles star.

Cena is in the back standing by with Josh Matthews. Cena said tonight he's going out there to co-win that battle royal and next week he will become the #1 contender for the WWE Title. Val Venis shows up. He looks at Cena and says that Cena is nothing more than an Eminem wannabe and that he is definitely not what a WWE United States Champion should be. He just hates everything Cena stands for. Val believes that he was held back while guys like Cena and other young guys got everything handed to them. It is because of guys like Cena that women lost interest in him, they didn’t think he had what it takes to be a star. With that sort of attitude he had, it was time for a change in attitude and a change of scenery. His run on Raw was disastrous but now that he’s come to Smackdown, he’s not going to wait around. He despises guys like Cena, If guys like Cena are the future of the WWE then the WWE is in major trouble. He believes that he can defeat Cena. Val vows to throw Cena over the top rope tonight and then next week he will become the #1contender.

Cena responds back and mocks Val. First of all he mocks Val’s name and says Val doesn’t have a penis. He points out that Val’s career has gone south ever since his ladies left him, and his ladies have gone in Cena's direction. He continues to mock Val and reminds us that Val hasn't won a singles title since the Attitude Era. What makes him think that he can beat Cena? Cena says Val is nothing more than a failure. Cena said it’s not his fault that Val’s lost his looks and isn’t a ladies man anymore. He has a problem with the way how Cena looks, he thinks Cena is not fit to wear the United States Title? Cena said he worked hard to win this title and it’s his first championship in the WWE. If Val wasn’t anything important in 2003 it’s not his problem. It’s now John Cena’s time and tonight he's gonna make sure Val gets thrown over the top rope. Cena raises the US belt in Val's face and leaves.


Match 3
Booker T vs Rikishi

This match was decent but not too long. Near the end, Rikishi goes for a stinkface but Booker escapes and rolls out of the ring. Rikishi goes after him and they fight outside. Rikishi throws Booker back in and pounds away on Booker. Rikishi misses a corner splash. Booker hits the axe kick and puts his feet on the ropes to win the match.
Winner: Booker T


Backstage JBL arrives and he’s not in a good mood tonight. He insults Kyo Dai and guarantees that he will get his money back soon. Tonight he will get even with Tajiri in the battle royal by throwing him out and then he will co-win the battle royal. Now it’s JBL’s time to deliver. He’s on a roll, coming off a big win at WrestleMania. He’s been tag champion but he’s never won the US or WWE Title. JBL predicts that he will change the landscape of Smackdown.



Paul Heyman comes out to the ring and announced that he’s traded A-Train, Chuck Palumbo and Johnny the Bull to Raw. In return he has received Spike Dudley, Mark Jindrak and Matt Hardy. Paul introduces Matt Hardy and Heyman welcomes him back to Smackdown. Heyman told Hardy it was a mistake for him to leave Smackdown in the first place and look at how his run on Raw went. Bischoff did not treat him right, he didn’t even have a match for the Raw ppv. This week on Raw, he had to face that monster Batista and Batista destroyed him. Heyman promised to give him a ppv match at Judgment Day. Smackdown is the land of opportunity and if he stays on good terms with him then Hardy will achieve success on Smackdown. He points out that Val Venis is a great example. A great wrestler who was held down on Raw by Bischoff but as soon as he jumped to Smackdown, he revived his career. Hardy can also do the same on Smackdown as Smackdown changes the careers of stars, it is clearly the number 1 show. Hardy admits it was a mistake that he went to Raw a few months ago but now he’s glad to be back on Smackdown. On Smackdown he wrestled on almost every ppv but on Raw he did not get that opportunity. He was left off WrestleMania. Now it all begins again for Matt Hardy.



Tazz and Cole show pre-recorded comments from some of the stars competing in the battle royal – comments from The Undertaker and Tajiri. Tajiri was shown with Kyo Dai and they were mocking JBL in their own language.

Backstage Josh Matthews asks Eddie who he thinks will win the battle royal tonight and who would he prefer to face at Judgment Day. From the 10 stars competing in the battle royal, 5 of them he’s faced before in the past(Rey, RVD, Val, Tajiri and Cena) and the other 5 he’s never had a match against them. He’s a fighting champion and he will take on all comers. He’s there to lead the Smackdown brand to the top and as Champion he will be holding this belt for a very long time. Josh then asked Eddie if he will be champion going into Judgment Day because up next he will take on his nephew Chavo. Eddie said tonight is Chavo’s lucky night because he’s getting a second chance but he won’t be so lucky after Eddie is done beating the hell out of him and Chavo Sr. Eddie starts walking down for his match and runs into Kane. Kane looked at Eddie and said Eddie has what he wants and that's the WWE Title. Eddie tells Kane if he wants the title then he has to co-win that battle royal and then win his match next week to earn that opportunity. He doesn't back down from any challenge. Kane gets angry and says It is people like Eddie Guerrero who make him angry and after he wins the battle royal tonight, Eddie's days as champion are over. Kane laughs and walks off.


Match 4
WWE Title Match
Eddie Guerrero (c) vs Chavo Guerrero

At the start of the match the referee sends Chavo Sr to the back to make sure it is a fair match. Eddie and Chavo put on a fast paced match with a lot of counters and lock ups. In the end Chavo goes for a suplex from the top rope but Eddie pushes Chavo off and hits a frog splash to win the match.
Winner: Eddie Guerrero

In the back RVD was warming up backstage and Booker came in and sarcastically congratulated for pulling one over him last week. He started laughing but then got serious and told RVD that if he was in RVD’s position then he wouldn’t have done the same. RVD beat him when he had his back turned and Booker should be the one who should be competing in tonight’s match. He wants to know why RVD did that. RVD simply told Booker that the rules were told in advance that it was everyman for himself in this concept. It was the luck of the draw and Booker would have definitely done the same if he was in his position. He should be wishing him luck tonight for getting the opportunity of getting a WWE Title shot. Booker told RVD that he will be out there to ensure RVD gets that opportunity. RVD said he can do this by himself. Booker cut him off and said exactly. If RVD wants to do things alone then they should stop teaming up together because ever since coming to Smackdown, RVD is the one who’s been screwing things up. If they stopped teaming then they would find better success on Smackdown. Booker said RVD is like his ex partners Stevie Ray and Goldust, they held him down. Tonight he had a match and he won. RVD said that is not what he meant and he needs Booker. Booker then said alright we will see how you do by yourself.



Cole and Tazz speak to Edge via satellite. Edge is at home and Edge said he returned from injury 3 weeks ago and last week he was suspended for the attack on Angle. He had enough sitting at home and when he returned, he got what he wanted by putting Kurt Angle out of action. However he had to sit home again because he’s suspended. Well no one took action on Kurt, so Edge had to do it his way. Did he go too far? Absolutely not. Edge felt that he owned no one an explanation, not even his friend Rey Mysterio. Edge says that Rey had no business coming out when Edge was going to inflict more pain on Kurt. Even though Rey is his friend, he decided not to listen to him and bashed Kurt with a conchairto shot. Edge says he loved every bit of it.

Cole asked what is next for Edge? Edge said he had two goals when he returned and he’s achieved one of them. He could have achieved the other goal but Paul Heyman screwed him over by removing him from the lethal lottery tournament. He will see Heyman next week and Edge will add to Heyman’s on going problems on Smackdown. Edge’s goal was to become champion but now he has to wait. Edge called it a conspiracy but his wait to be champion won’t be long. Some day he will get his chance because he believes he is more than ready to compete at the top level. Next week he will pick up from where he left off a year ago and that is to continue being Smackdown’s fastest rising star.


In the back Paul Heyman fires up Rhyno. He wants Rhyno to get back to winning ways. Two weeks ago he couldn’t even beat Rey Mysterio and last week he was pinned in the lethal lottery match. Heyman pleads with Rhyno to destroy Big Show, he wants the Rhyno who he knew before he had his neck surgery. Ever since Rhyno returned from his surgery last year he hasn’t been the same. Right now Big Show is one of his biggest problems and he wants Rhyno to destroy Big Show. Heyman is going to be out there at ringside to motivate Rhyno.

Match 5
Hardcore Match
The Big Show vs Rhyno

Rhyno brings a shopping cart full of weapons. This match was very entertaining. Big Show levels Rhyno with a stop sign and dominates the match. Heyman slips in a chair and Rhyno whacks Show across the back with a chair. They fight outside and Big Show goes after Heyman who manages to get away from Big Show. Near the end Rhyno gores Big Show and Big Show ends up getting tied in the ropes(Andre the Giant style)

Rhyno pounds away on Big Show. Rhyno calls Heyman in the ring and Heyman repeatedly slaps Big Show. Heyman grabs the mic and starts taunting Big Show as the match continues on. Rhyno pounds away at Big Show. Show gets mad and breaks out and Heyman bails out of the ring. Rhyno goes for the gore but Big Show dodges and sends him into the turnbuckle. Big Show chokeslams Rhyno through a chair to win the match. Big Show taunts Heyman to get in the ring right now and Heyman gets a mic and tells Show that no way is he going to step in the ring. Big Show gets a mic and demands Heyman to get in the ring right now. If Heyman’s not going to get in the ring then he’s coming right after him. He drops the mic and chases Heyman all the way backstage and into the parking lot. Heyman gets in a car and escapes.
Winner: The Big Show


Backstage Josh interviews Big Show. Big Show is fuming mad and he’s fed up of Heyman playing games. He wants to get rid of him and challenges him to a match next week on Smackdown. He doesn’t care if Heyman teams with Rhyno to face him in a handicap match, he just wants Heyman in the ring next week. If Heyman is a coward and decides not to go ahead with this then Big Show has another idea. If he beats any guy that represents Heyman next week then he gets Heyman in the ring for 5 minutes. If he fails to win next week then he promises not to lay a hand on Heyman ever again.

Tazz and Cole show more pre-recorded comments from some of the stars competing in the battle royal – comments from Rey Mysterio and Kane.


Main Event
10 Man Battle Royal- John Cena, The Undertaker, RVD, Rey Mysterio, Kane, Val Venis, JBL, Tajiri, Jamie Noble and Johnny Nitro.

At the start of the match everyone teams up against Kane and The Undertaker, they try to put them out but they fight them off. Cena FU’s Noble over the top rope and Noble is out. Mysterio and Nitro fight away in the corner. Mysterio dropkicks Nitro over the top rope to send him out. Booker T comes down to do commentary. RVD then notices that Booker is out there and Booker starts shouting come on RVD. JBL pounds away at Tajiri, Tajiri comes back with a kick to the face on JBL. Tajiri locks in the tarantula but JBL powers out and throws Tajiri out. Cena clotheslines Val out. Val comes back in the ring and throws Cena out. Val starts laughing up the ramp.

Back in the ring RVD and Kane begin to slug away and are near the ropes. Booker gets up on the apron and tries to help RVD eliminate Kane. Kane grabs Booker and rams his head onto RVD which sends Booker to the ground. Kane lifts RVD up and throws him out on top of Booker. RVD and Booker just stare at each other and RVD is very upset. Booker tries to calm him down and RVD argues with his partner down the ramp for showing up. RVD then walks off and Booker just looks on and walks to the back. In the ring Kane eliminates Rey Mysterio. It comes down to JBL, Taker and Kane. Take and Kane are fighting trying to get each other out as JBL looks on. JBL throws both, but they hang on. JBL thinks he’s won it. He turns around as Taker and Kane are standing right behind him. JBL tries to work out a deal with Kane and they double team Taker. JBL turns on Kane and hits the clothesline from hell on Kane. JBL goes for the clothesline from hell but Taker catches JBL and hits the chokeslam. Taker throws JBL out and Taker and Kane win the match. Eddie Guerrero comes out on the stage for a minute and looks at The Undertaker. He will face either Taker or Kane at Judgment Day. Next week it is The Undertaker vs Kane and the winner of the match will face Eddie Guerrero at Judgment Day. Eddie has never faced Undertaker or Kane in a one on one match. Eddie walks off. As soon as Taker turns around he walks into a chokeslam from Kane. Kane continues the assault and hits a tombstone on Taker. Kane leaves the ring and starts laughing up the ramp. Taker sits up and stares at Kane as Smackdown comes to a close.
Winners: The Undertaker and Kane.

The main event for next week is The Undertaker vs Kane and the winner of the match will face Eddie Guerrero at Judgment Day.

Wow I am loving this BTB so much,
Canít wait until Backlash with Triple H and The Rock, Foley and Orton Hiac, and Benoit and HBK in an Iron man match.
Also Judgment day with maybe an Eddie Kane and Taker triple threat and a possible Booker T and RVD match

Default Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

I'll pop you feedback for this Smackdown. But, really. Don't PM me asking for feedback again please. If you ask me for it, I wont give you it.

Smackdown Feedback

Your writing style & presentation is certainly unique in a way. Not too often you see threads posting pictures as they go along. I've not been following this thread too much so have no idea what this Lethal Lottery thing is, I'll assume it's something designed to try and get the title off of Eddie Guerrero.

Half assed review of the match tbh. I would have preferred some sort of recap of it, not just 'Nunzio dominates, Spike makes a comeback and wins' Some sort of detail would have been a nice touch to it.

I'm assuming RVD & Booker have had some tension in recent weeks? though, Booker kind of buried the tag team division here but it got the job done with Booker dissing Rikishi. A decent segment here, hopefully you do something good with Booker because he should have had a good ME push in 2003, never mind 2004.

Again, another half assed recap of a match, something I don't really like to read because it doesn't give me any picture of what is going on at all and doesn't do anything for the imagination. Kidman heel turn please.

Mark Jindrak FTW. Loved him and have some plans for him in my own thread. Do something good with him please, just don't job him out. His left hook was fucking amazing.

I really can't comment on these matches much tbh, hence the small sentences I'm giving for them. Booker coming out on top was expected, though.

Did JBL's money get stolen or something? You have a lot of talent on Smackdown and JBL is one you should also give a decent ME push and possibly even a WWE title reign, just not in the same fashion he won it from Eddie IRL, though. JBL vs. Tajiri? Wonder who will win that one...

Was there any need for Heyman to go to the ring to announce Hardy had been traded to Smackdown? A backstage segment would have been suffice imo. Hardy was gold in 2003/204 with the V.1 Gimmick, hopefully you can develop it further without him growing stale.

Comments from The Undertaker? Did dead Undertaker even talk during this time period, after all he only just came back and I don't really remember him saying a word.

Eddie's segment was alright, got the job done but following that was the match again, a WWE title match should at least be written in extended recap form if not that, then full. That's just the way I see it anyway. Obviously Chavo was going to lose but a full match for something that has the main title on the line deserves more detail.

Booker/RVD backstage segment was good. I liked it. RVD being the cool, high on weed dude he is and Booker twisting RVD's 'I can do it by myself' words worked well. I expect Booker to come out and eliminate RVD.

Edge heel turn please. He sucks as a face, he got stale and boring as a face and he needs to new life breathed into him, just try not to go the same way WWE did with his character though. If you can make his face character work, then props to you, because he blows as a face.

Detail for Rhyno vs. Big Show but not for Eddie vs. Chavo? ..... Okay? Is Rhyno's losing streak going to evolve into some sort of storyline? Don't job Rhyno out, he had potential, especially in 2002-2004. Big Show chasing Heyman? I laughed at that thought. Big Show vs. Heyman? That will be a barrel of laughs. Especially if you give it detail.

Main event time, some detail?!?! :O Was a decent Battle Royal but I'm not sure about the winners. I suppose it furthers Kane vs. Undertaker, hopefully... Undertaker wins because the idea of Eddie vs. Undertaker is amazing, a dream match I wanted to see in 2004/2005.

Overall, I sounded harsh but that's only to help you. More detail is something you need to work on but the show itself in terms of storylines etc was good. Was an enjoyable show if you miss out the lack of detail for the matches.

Hey,
Your Lethal Lottery was good once again, I really enjoyed the matches you've produced this week. More detail show be given to the matches though so we get a better understanding. Love the feud between the Big Show and Paul Heyman, and the tension between Booker T and RVD. I can't wait to see the Undertaker and Kane next week for. Add some more details to the matches, and it will be great! Good Job

Thanks for the reviews guys. I will give more detail for my matches in my next show. Hollywood Hogan thanks - During that time period Paul Bearer did most of the talking in promos and Taker didn't talk much, just a few lines that's all. Glad you liked the show.

WWE Raw Preview
April 12, 2004



FINAL STOP BEFORE BACKLASH


The final RAW before Backlash comes to you from Chicago, and Eric Bischoff has set up a huge main event match for Raw. The Game HHH will team with Randy Orton to take on The Rock and Cactus Jack. Is it going to be Evolution’s night tonight?

Also tonight Jim Ross will conduct an interview with Shawn Michaels and Chris Benoit. Not only does Shawn Michaels hold a victory over Chris Benoit, Shawn was also the winner of the first ever Iron Man Match in the WWE at WrestleMania 12. What will Chris Benoit and Shawn Michaels do to gain an edge before their Iron Man Match encounter at Backlash?

Christian looks to get the advantage going into Backlash as Eric Bischoff has forced Chris Jericho to compete in a gauntlet match against La Resistance. Will Jericho be able to overcome the odds or will Christian gain the upper hand over Jericho?

We saw Eugene’s debut last week and William Regal’s return but what will Eugene get up to this week?

Plus Lance Storm wants to prove to Ric Flair that last week was not a fluke, tonight Storm will take on the legendary Ric Flair. Will Storm upset Flair or will Flair prove that Lance Storm is indeed a joke.

What other developments will take place during the final RAW before the pay-per-view event? Only one way to find out ... watch RAW

Confirmed Matches
HHH and Randy Orton vs The Rock and Cactus Jack
Gaunlet Match: Chris Jericho vs La Resistance
Ric Flair vs Lance Storm

WWE Raw
April 12, 2004



Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler welcome us to the show. The Hell in a Cell Cage is hanging ominously over the ring. HHH’s music hits as he makes his way down with Randy Orton. HHH calls himself the best in the business. He’s held more world titles, headlined more ppvs and sold out more arenas than the Rock could ever hope to do on his best damn day. Once he’s done beating the Rock he’s going to win back the world heavyweight title. He doesn't give a damn who wins the Iron Man Match. Now the reason they came out here and had the hell in a cell structure tonight so they get a sneak preview for what’s in store for Mick Foley this Sunday at Backlash. HHH calls Orton the future of the WWE and the best Intercontinental Champion ever. HHH wants Orton to be prepared for the match of his life. HHH fires up Orton and talks about Foley's past. Foley’s taken a lot of beating in the past and he wants Orton to give Foley the biggest beating of his life. At Royal Rumble 1999 two enemies who later on became best friends beat the hell out of each other in an I Quit Match. In the front row Foley’s wife and children were watching Foley get beat up. Foley’s kids started crying, they saw what a loser their father is. Then in 2000 HHH retired Foley in a hell in a cell match. If he can do it then so can Orton. The last hell in a cell match that was held, Foley was the referee and HHH won that match. He has never lost a one on one Hell in a Cell match. HHH calls himself the master of the Hell in a Cell match and Orton needs to follow in HHH's footsteps because Foley has never won a Hell in a Cell Match. He wants Orton to beat and bloody Foley worse than he’s ever been and he wants Orton to love every second of it.



Orton takes the mic and states that this Sunday he will settle his score with Foley in the most unforgiving match ever composed, a hell in a cell match. Orton didn’t give a damn if Foley wrestled in the most violent matches ever, he doesn’t give a damn how sick and crazy Foley is. Orton is the legend killer and he put Mick Foley out of the WWE. Now since Mick decided to come back as Cactus Jack, he wants to see how tough Mankind and Dude Love are. The fake Dude Love and fake Mankind come out. HHH asks Dude he’s the only one from Foley’s personas not to compete in a cell match. Is he scared? The Fake Dude Love states he is afraid of HHH and calls HHH is the greatest wrestler alive. HHH starts smiling. Orton asks the fake Mankind how it was like suffering so much pain when he fell from the top of the cell six years ago. The fake Mankind called it a painful experience and he’s worried for Mick Foley. Mick got his ass kicked by HHH four years ago and he’s stupid to make another comeback in a Hell in a Cell Match.

The Rock’s music hits and he comes out near the ramp. Rock doesn’t find this funny and insults HHH. Rock said tonight they’re in for a big brahma bull ass whopping. This Sunday HHH is going to get his ass whooped by the great one. The Rock is going to stick his boot, turn it sideways and shove it straight up HHH’s ass. HHH responds back and tells Rock that he is just like everybody else, an obstacle and at Backlash he’s going to run him down. HHH continues to ramble on and Rock cuts him off with his “It doesn’t matter line.” Rock said why wait till later on when he can whoop their ass right now. Rock heads to the ring. Cactus Jack’s music hits and he comes out with a baseball bat wrapped around in barbed wire. Orton and HHH bail out the ring. Rock attacks the fake Mankind and Cactus nails the fake Dude Love with the barbedwire bat. Orton sneaks back in and hits a low blow on Cactus and follows up with an RKO. HHH hits the pedigree on Rock in attempt to soften him up for the tag match tonight. Orton takes Foley’s bat with him as HHH and Orton head up the ramp.

Backstage Eric Bischoff meets Johnny the Bull and Chuck Palumbo and he is delighted to have them on Raw. Garrison Cade then shows up and Eric tells Cade that he shouldn’t be upset that split up the Cade/Jindrak team. Now that Jindrak has gone to Smackdown, this is an opportunity for Cade to shine in singles competition. Cade promised to make an impact on Raw.

Elsewhere Shelton Benjmamin fires up Charlie Haas to get the advantage for their team going into Backlash because Haas needs to win tonight. They have had the upperhand over The Dudleys in recent weeks and they need to continue the momentum going into Backlash. La Resistance approach TWGTT and remind them that they teamed up a few weeks ago and they were victorious. However it is The Dudleys that are receiving a title shot and not them. Rene complains about them not having a match at Backlash. If Haas and Benjamin manage to defeat the Dudleys then they want to be next in line for a title shot. Haas and Benjamin agreed to give them a title shot.


Match 1
Victoria and Gail Kim vs Jazz and Molly



We get ready for our first match but Eugene runs down to the ring impersonating the Ultimate Warrior. He shakes the ropes and runs over to the announce table. He takes off JR’s hat and starts wearing it. He then takes off King’s crown and wears it. William Regal runs down to get Eugene away from them. Gail Kim and Victoria make their way down for their tag match. Eugene goes over and starts licking Gail and Victoria. They freak out and Regal gets him away and takes him all the way to the back. Once Eugene and Regal are gone, the heel divas come out and the match begins. Gail and Molly lock up and Molly takes Gail down with an arm drag. She works on the arm and tags in Jazz.

Regal asks Coach if he can have a word with Eric and wants Coach to stand outside to supervise Eugene while he talks with Eric. Regal pleads with Eric that he doesn’t want to manage an idiot like Eugene. He did not come back for this, he deserves better. In the past he’s done a lot of stupid things but this really takes the cake. Regal suggests that Eugene needs a female manager and Stacey Keibler would be perfect for this job. Bischoff tells Regal if he doesn’t want to take this job then he will put him in a match against Batista tonight. Regal had no other choice but to listen to Eric. Outside the office Coach is screaming, Eugene is licking Coach’s head. Bischoff and Regal go and see what is going on. Eugene is delighted to see his Uncle Eric and starts hugging him. Eric asks Eugene if he wants to become a wrestler. Eugene starts getting excited and he would love to become a wrestler. Eugene starts impersonating Hulk Hogan. Eric looks at Regal and tells him that Eugene can learn so much him. Regal is definitely the right man for this job. He can make Eugene a star so Regal’s task is to train Eugene to become a wrestler. Regal can select two wrestlers to help him train Eugene. Regal was shocked and Coach started laughing. Eric wants Regal to take Eugene away from here and he will see them next week. He wants to see progress, he wants to know how Eugene is getting on

Finally she rings the bell. We get a 3 on 1 beatdown.

Christian the ring announcer announces that he is not going to let Jericho get away with it so easy. He did not pin Rene or made him submit. He just won the match by DQ but Eric Bischoff forgot to tell him that he has one more opponent. He has hired a bodyguard. Trish has managed him in the past and he’s been traded to Raw. His final opponent is A-TRAIN.

For Rock vs HHH at Backlash, outside interference will not be tolerated. If HBK and Benoit lay a hand on each other before Backlash then they will be fined and suspended.

The announcers run down the card for Backlash.


Jim Ross interviews Chris Benoit and Shawn Michaels

HBK makes his way down to the ring first followed by World Heavyweight Champion Chris Benoit. JR mentioned that we’ve had a wild night so far. Eric Bischoff issued a ruling that both men can’t touch each other before their match at Backlash. JR first brings up Benoit’s rise to the top. WrestleMania 20 was definitely the biggest night of his career and now he goes into Backlash to make his first ppv title defence in his home town. Not only does Shawn Michaels have a good record in Canada, he was also the winner of the first Iron Man Match when he defeated the legendary Bret the Hitman Hart. Does Benoit feel the pressure? Is he nervous? Benoit cuts a good intense promo about his match at Backlash. Chris said he was nervous going into WrestleMania realising that if he blew this opportunity then it would be a long time till he would get that chance to main event a WrestleMania and to be champion. He seized the opportunity and proved everyone wrong by becoming champion at WrestleMania. For him failure is not an option. Now he is pretty confident going into Edmonton, having the home crowd support. He’s been training hard for this match and he can go the distance. He may not have wrestled in an Iron Man Match but he’s been involved in several long matches. He may not ever be the same again after this match but he will walk into Edmonton as champion and he will walk out as champion.



JR asked Shawn if he fails at Backlash then it will be a long time till he ever gets that opportunity at the gold again. JR says in his opinion HBK is the greatest performer of all time. JR brings up Michaels big matches in the past and this could very well be the greatest match of all time. Michaels walked into WrestleMania 12 as challenger and walked out as champion. Will HBK make history at Backlash by becoming the first man to win two Iron Man Matches? Michaels talked about some of his biggest achievements in the WWE and then looks at Benoit and tells him that in this ring no one can touch him, not even HHH, not even Hulk Hogan and certainly not your hero Bret the Hitman Hart. Till Benoit don’t go through him in this business he’s done nothing. Until Benoit goes through him, he can not claim anything to be in this business other than a step below him. When you get in that ring HBK can do what nobody else did, he can do it longer and he can do it better.

Benoit took offence to this and cuts HBK off and counters with what HBK achieved at the Royal Rumble 95 as the #1 participant, he achieved it this year as the #1 participant and certainly did it way better by going all the way and winning the Rumble. That was his first attempt in a Rumble match and he won and went on to win the title at WM. HBK responds back with the impressive list of stars he’s defeated in one on one competition such as Bret Hart, The Undertaker, HHH and many more and most of these guys Benoit has never beaten them. What makes him think that he can beat HBK. Benoit has become an obstacle in his path and he’s going to walk into Calgary next week on Raw as the new world heavyweight champion and he’s going to stick it to the fans in Canada. Chris finished off the segment by saying Michaels has never ever had somebody take him to a level where he’s never been and he will be in for the fight of his life at Backlash. HBK wished Benoit good luck because he’s going to need it. HBK’s music hits. They shake hands and Benoit raises the world title in the air as Raw comes to a close.

Raw Feedback


Opening up with Triple H & Randy Orton made sense, giving them a one last chance to hype up their respective matches at Backlash by way of promo. What Triple H said was really well written, enjoyed it to be honest and couldn't really fault it. Randy Orton putting himself over but I think it's obvious he fears Foley/Cactus/Whatever. The Cell match between these two should be interesting, just don't for the love of god throw Cactus off the top of the Cell. Out comes Rocky and he's in typical Rocky fashion, I felt sorry for the fake Mankind & Dude Love here Triple H & Orton take both Rock & Cactus out here so I expect to see Cactus/Rock gaining the win/upper hand in the match later on tonight. Overall, a good opening segment.

Garrison Cade in 2004 = Not interested. Didn't like him at all, especially under that God awful name Garrison, he needs to be repackaged imo before you even think about using him. Palumbo & The Bull could be a nice addition to the tag team division I think. Decent little Haas & Benjamin segment, got the job done tbh.

Not much to say about match one, when I saw the paragraph, I thought it was a match with a good length of etail but it just turned out to be Eugene fucking about. I'm hoping you don't use him too much tbh, granted he had an epic match with Triple H @ SummerSlam '04. Maybe you can eventually get a good storyline out of Eugene, maybe that he was on Retard Pills or something and he has been took off them and he turns into a normal character. The backstage segment sort of reminded me of real life, didn't Eric force Regal to train Eugene or something similar? Anyway, it got the job done I suppose.

Some detail! FTW! Bravo! A nice little match here but you didn't give away too much which was good since they are now going to face at Backlash. Storm was so underrated and unde...ed, I hope you can make him somewhat relevant and a proper Submission win over Ric Flair would do the job nicely I think because lets be honest, Flair doesn't need it.

Christian & Trish pulling out all the stops to dismantle Jericho, eh? Jericho kind of easily beat La Resistance, he didn't have much of a challenge tbh until he got his ass handed to him by all 3 of them but when A-Train came out, I'll be honest, I loved it. New Problem Solver for Christian? A-Train destroyed Jericho here. I can't see Jericho losing at Backlash now tbh, unless A-Train gets involved again so you can really get him over.

This has been annoying me for a while in this thread, it's Bubbah Ray not Buh Buh, he was Buh Buh in ECW but when he came to WWE he was renamed Bubbah. Just annoys me and felt I should point it out. Bubbah getting the win was expected tbh but I'm not expecting the Dudleys to win at Backlash. Make the oldies put over the Young ones.

Evolution have a plan it seems? Interesting.

BRUTAL. Jesus Christ, the Cell coming down was expected because lets be honest, why else would it be in attendance? It was just a brawl here, Foley & Rock coming out on top was a nice touch, makes it less obvious who is going to win at Backlash now both sides have successful attacks in one night.

Eric laying down the law was a nice touch, hopefully a guarantee that we will have an epic Triple H/Rock encounter without Triple H needing his buddies to score a win.

Nice ending to Raw imo. Benoit's promo was very in character so it worked for me, failure not being an option showed some intensity to him. HBK's accomplishments hyped up by JR. I'm unsure about this but is HBK supposed to be a tweener/heel? Because that's what he came across as to me here. I honestly have no idea who will win this one, I actually think it could go either way but, having Benoit win would be the only option that makes sense, puts him over big time and makes him look like a legit main eventer. (As if beating HBK & HHH at WrestleMania wasn't enough. )

Overall, it was a good show, not much in terms of matches but the promo's delivered on what they intended to do, hype for Backlash certainly looks good and I'll definitely be reading and popping a review in for that. Hoping for it to be in full too please.

WWE Smackdown Preview
April 15, 2004



Tonight the lethal lottery tournament comes to an end as The Undertaker and Kane will compete in the final to determine the number one contender for the WWE Title. The winner will face Eddie Guerrero for the WWE Title at Judgment Day. Who will be victorious tonight?

At No Way Out 2003 Edge was supposed to compete in a 6 man tag match however he did not compete due to injury which resulted in Edge being out of action for over a year. When Edge returned he got his revenge on his attacker Kurt Angle and Edge was suspended for his actions. Now Edge is back tonight from suspension and he will be returning to action tonight in a 6 man tag team match. Edge will team up with Rey Mysterio and John Cena to face Matt Hardy, Rhyno and Johnny Nitro.

For the first time in Smackdown history a stretcher match will take place tonight. Paul Heyman has guaranteed that Big Show will be leaving on a stretcher tonight. The Big Show has requested a match with Paul Heyman but Paul Heyman has turned it down and has chosen Val Venis to face Big Show tonight in a stretcher match. Paul Heyman has promised Val Venis a US Title shot if he can beat The Big Show. However if Val does not beat Big Show then Big Show gets 5 minutes in the ring with Paul Heyman. Is Paul that confident that Val will be able to defeat the Big Show? Has Paul Heyman made a mistake to agree to such stipulations? What if Big Show defeats Val then what will be the fate of Paul Heyman?

JBL wants his money back and guaranteed that he will make Kyo Dai pay for their actions. Tonight JBL will be stepping in the ring with the leader of Kyo Dai, Tajiri. Will JBL get his money back or will Kyo Dai continue to live the rich life.

Finally Paul Heyman has set up a huge tag team turmoil pitting 6 tag teams. Paul Heyman has assured that RVD and Booker T will not be having an advantage by coming out last. The order of entry will be determined by a random drawing. Will RVD and Booker be successful tonight or will we have new tag team champions crowned? Could The Guerreros make history by becoming the first father and son team to win the tag team titles? To find out tune in to Smackdown.

Confirmed Matches
Lethal Lottery Tournament Finals: The Undertaker vs Kane
6 Man Tag: Edge, Rey Mysterio and John Cena vs Matt Hardy, Johnny Nitro and Rhyno
Stretcher Match: Val Venis vs The Big Show
JBL vs Tajiri
Tag Team Turmoil (c)RVD and Booker T vs 2 Cool vs Paul London and Billy Kidman vs The Hurricane and Shannon Moore vs Akio and Funaki vs The Guerreros(Chavo Sr and Chavo Jr)
