Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

Backlash Feedback

Victoria beating Jazz was one hell of a contest to start off the PPV before the actual PPV, and for Victoria to retain against Jazz, that much I even have praise for

Jericho beating Christian with his new finisher The Codebreaker, I must say I love that move, not even Christian saw it coming. That Codebreaker can come from absolutely nowhere and the fact that Jericho used that move on Christian instead of making him submit to the Walls of Jericho is what made the match even more exciting and also because since Christian won at WrestleMania, it was only right that Jericho won the rubber match at Backlash. Since Jericho beat Christian, doesn't that make him a front runner to also be #1 Contender for the World Heavyweight Championship down the road? If it does, then I am glad that this feud is over and both of them can move on from each other.

Storm losing to Flair in his final PPV match, I must say that is definitely the way to go for Lance Storm since he is retiring anyway, and what better person for him to retire against than "The Dirtiest Player in the Game" Ric Flair and the submission match was probably one of my favorite matches on this card as it set the tone for Evolution

Hell in A Cell Title vs Career IC Title Match, Orton vs Foley my match of the night as far as I am concerned as this is the most brutal Hell In A Cell match that I have read in a while and I liked it. Especially the thumbtacks, the barbed wire, the blood, everything as far as I am concerned. Orton was a Viper inside that Cell against Foley giving him the biggest beating he has ever received, but Foley also gave it right back to Orton too beating the holy hell out of him in the Cell but still in a losing effort. As this match was definitely the way for Mick Foley to go out especially now that his career is over and Orton has killed yet another legend, now the push of Randy Orton can begin.

The Rock beating Triple H, I am a huge fan of that, really I am. Rock ends Evolution's streak of wins at Backlash by beating Triple H, as he layeth the Smackethdown straight on HHH's candy ass. Rock can now sail off into the sunset especially now that he has beaten Triple H, so that means HHH's title shot goes up in smoke since he lost to The People's Champ, The Brahma Bull The Rock which I love. But I see a Rock/Orton feud especially now that Orton just retired one of Rock's best friends Mick Foley, and I for one cannot wait for that feud.

Benoit retaining his World Heavyweight Championship against HBK in an Iron Man Match beating him in overtime, this match also is a candidate not just for Match of the Night but also for Match of the Year, a classic in my opinion. Now this match up just proves that Benoit is for real and that he is not a fluke, and that whoever does come up against him will definitely have to be ready.

Overall great Backlash PPV and I cannot wait until RAW to see what you have in store!!!!!!!

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

REVIEW
First off... this is a really exciting PPV to be apart of, definitely worth a 5* rating. You've built it up greatly on raw over the last several weeks.

Christian and Jericho - a great rematch from Wrestlemania with the swerve of Regal and Eugene. I think they added some entertainment value to the outside of the ring while the action was happening inside. Jericho picking up the win with the Codebreaker is definitely good. I hope you keep this feud going over the next couple of weeks.

Ric Flair and Lance Storm - Short match, but a classic match for the Nature Boy. I am happy that you chose a submission match as the stipulation as I always enjoy seeing the figure four. Good way to end Storms career as said above.

HIAC - definitely a train wreck between to men with a bitter feud to settle. I have never read a more disgusting (good) match as I have with this. Sad that Foley didn't pick up the win, but it definitely did help to elevate Randy Orton's career while cementing Foley's legacy as a Hardcore Icon.

WGTT and Dudleys - a short match between two great teams. I felt that this was definitely your weakest match. I think these two teams would have had the potential to put on a classic tag team contest on a night with so many classic matches. The right team did pick up the win.

Rock and HHH - great back and forth contest between two of WWEs greatest talent. Rock picking up the win in the end is great for his career. I know he will probably go back to "hollywood", but would hope that maybe he might stay and will argue over HHH's World Title opportunity. I would love to see the Rock face the World Champion once again.

Iron Man Match - definitely the best Iron Match Match ever. I love the fact the Benoit was left behind HBK so often in the match, but finally tied at the 59:25 mark. The overtime needed to happen for these two superstars. I love the fact that Benoit won, but a little part of me was hoping for an Edmonton "Screw Job".

Looking forward to Monday Night RAW.

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

Thanks for the reviews guys. I'm glad you enjoyed the ppv. Still welcoming reviews until i get Raw up after this preview. Raw show should be posted by Tuesday. A few matches at Backlash were short because of time constraints as i had an iron man match on the show.

WWE Raw Preview
April 19, 2004




SEE ALL OF THE FALLOUT FROM BACKLASH


Less than 24 hours after Backlash, Monday Night RAW comes to you live from Calgary with all of the fallout from the pay-per-view spectacular.

In front of his hometown, Chris Benoit successfully defended his World Heavyweight Championship at Backlash in an Iron Man Match against the Heart Break Kid Shawn Michaels. After competing in such a grueling match, Eric Bischoff has announced that both men will be in action tonight.

The main event for tonight’s show will be an all Canadian 6 Man Tag Team Match. Last night was Chris Benoit day but tonight it’s Lance Storm day. In Lance Storm’s final WWE match he will team with world heavyweight champion Chris Benoit and Chris Jericho as they take on Christian and La Resistance members Sylvan Grenier and Rene Dupree. Will Lance Storm win his final match in his hometown or will his career end on a sour note.

Lance Storm was upset last night that his final ppv match ended in interference. Following the ppv Lance requested Eric Bischoff that his final match will have no outside interference. Eric Bischoff has granted Storm his request which means Trish Stratus, A-Train and La Resistance member Rob Conway are barred from ringside. However Eric Bischoff has appointed a referee for this match and that is a man that is hated by Canadian fans, Earl Hebner. Eric Bischoff decided not to have Earl Hebner as the referee for the main event last night because he did not want to put Earl in another difficult position. In other words, he did not want Earl to screw over Chris Benoit in his hometown. However tonight as the world heavyweight title is not being defended, Earl will be refereeing the main event in Canada. Will Earl call this match down the middle? Have the Canadian fans forgiven Earl Hebner? If they haven't then will they forgive Earl if he calls this match down the middle?

As for HBK he will be in action against A-Train. What kind of condition will Michaels be in when he goes up against the monster A-Train.

Fans witnessed an amazing Hell in a Cell Match between the legendary Cactus Jack and Randy Orton at Backlash. In the end it was Orton who was able to pull out the win, further solidifying his Legend Killer claims. Now that Orton has ended Mick Foley's career, how will Orton celebrate his huge victory?

It would have been a perfect night for Evolution but HHH hit Rock Bottom against The Rock. Is HHH still the number one contender or has the Rock’s victory changed the whole scene on who the next contender is for the world heavyweight title?

Also tonight The Dudleys will receive a rematch as they take on The World’s Greatest Tag Team in a tag team tables match.

Gail Kim returned to Raw two weeks ago and scored a victory over Trish Stratus in a mixed tag team match. Tonight the two Canadian divas go at it in a one on one match. Will Gail score another victory over Trish or will Trish get her revenge? All this and more on Monday Night Raw.

Confirmed Matches
Main Event: 6 Man Tag Team Match: Chris Benoit, Chris Jericho and Lance Storm vs Christian and La Resistance(Sylvan Grenier and Rene Dupree)
Trish Stratus vs Gail Kim
Shawn Michaels vs A-Train
Tag Team Championship Tables Match: The World’s Greatest Tag Team (c) vs The Dudleys

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

Bloody 'ell mate! This looks like a great show, coming off what was a great PPV to read (Sorry I didn't get a review up, I'll definately review this upcoming Raw).

I think that this All Canadian match is a great idea, as the fans would definitely love it, and it seems a great way to send Lance Storm off. I'm going for the good guys to get the win, as both Benoit and Jericho just came off huge wins at Backlash, and I don't think you'd make good ol' Lance lose his last match, but I can't wait to read that main event.

I'm expecting to see some more from The Rock and Evolution, as Rocky definitely has a bone to pick with Orton for retiring Foley, and then there is of course Triple H.

All in all, it looks like a great show, especially with the Tables Match as well, and it seems like a great way to show the fall out from Backlash

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

WWE Raw
April 19, 2004


Highlights are shown from Backlash which shows clips from the world title match, HHH vs Rock and the Hell in a Cell Match.



Evolution are shown arriving in a limousine. They all seem like in a good mood except HHH. Todd Grisham asks HHH despite what happened last night against the Rock, is HHH still the #1 contender? HHH tells Todd that he asked such a stupid question because The Rock getting a fluke win last night simply does not make Rock the #1 contender. Since losing the title, he's yet to have his rematch. He is the official #1 contender and there is nothing anyone can do about it. He’s going to get what he wants and Evolution walk off.

The Raw video package plays as the announcers welcome us to the show. Last night was Chris Benoit day and tonight is Lance Storm day as Raw is from Storm’s hometown in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Raw starts off with the world heavyweight champion Chris Benoit coming out to the ring and saluting the fans. Benoit is handed a mic and starts talking about how his journey on how started out as a wrestler. It all started in Calgary in Stu Hart’s dungeon. It was a long journey to get to the top and at WrestleMania he became champion. However some people doubted him, they thought he was not for real. HHH called him a one hit wonder but last night at Backlash, he finally proved he is for real. He had the match of his life against Shawn Michaels and proved that he can beat him and would love to have another round with HBK. Somewhere down the line they would meet again. HBK’s music hits as he comes out to a mixed reaction and requests a mic.



Fans start a “you tapped out chant.” Michaels addresses the crowd. The first thing he says is yes he did but if he didn’t he would have been the one walking out right now with the world heavyweight title. He thanks Benoit for such an amazing match. He was so close to capturing the gold again but at the end his luck ran out. He was 2 minutes away from winning the title but he made a mistake. The pain he suffered throughout the match, he was pretty banged up near the end. What he tried at WrestleMania 12 worked, but what he did last night backfired on him. He knows he can beat Chris, Chris knows it. He had him beat last night but Benoit proved last night he was the man but HBK still believes he is better and wants that chance again at some point. No man could ever take Chris to the limit than HBK and HBK gave Chris the toughest match of his career. HBK then puts Benoit over and said last night Benoit proved he is for real and made a believer out of HBK. Fans start cheering for HBK a bit. Benoit responds and tells HBK that he respects him and would love to go at it with him again and decided to give HBK another crack at the gold. Shawn and Benoit shake hands with intensity.



HHH’s music hits as he makes his way out on the stage with a mic in his hand. HHH wants to know what the hell is going on here. Who the hell do they think they are. HHH tells HBK that he had his chance at the title last night and lost. The only one worthy of being #1 contender is him. He still hasn’t had his rematch yet and if there is anybody that deserves a shot at the world title then it’s him, not HBK or any other guy. They have to go at the back of the line and wait for their opportunity because he’s the only man in this business that’s worthy of holding that world heavyweight title. HHH tells Shawn that Shawn beat him to get that title match at Backlash but since Shawn lost last night, it automatically puts the game in contention for the world title. That belt is his life. Chris Benoit responds back and tells HHH he will give him all the rematches he wants but the result will be the same and that he will tap out. Since Eric Bischoff named HHH the #1 contender, HHH lost last night, it should be him that should go to the back of the line. He has nothing to prove to HHH because he made him tap at WrestleMania. Eric Bischoff comes out on the stage and stands next to HHH. Eric said he’s the only one who makes matches around here and we’re not going to see Benoit vs HBK next week. He doesn’t care if they wrestled a 1 hour match, they will be in action tonight. He did promise HHH a title shot but since he lost last night it’s put him in a dilemma. Other guys feel they should be in contention for a title shot. It’s a tough job to please everyone on Raw but he’s fair so he will come to a decision about the #1 contendership before the end of the night.

Backstage in Bischoff’s office La Resistance are complaining about not receiving a tag title shot. Rene doesn’t understand why Eric gave the Dudleys a rematch especially after they lost last night. Eric assures them that they will soon get a tag title shot, he had other plans for them tonight and this is why they are in the main event for tonight’s show. Eric asked them when they get the title shot they have to come to a decision which two from the three would be competing for tag titles. Rob Conway told Eric they're going to make a statement and then the tag champs will take notice and will take them seriously.

Lance Storm Moment: A clip is shown of Storm in ECW and WCW.


Match 1
Trish Stratus vs Gail Kim




Gail comes out first to a good ovation, Trish comes out to a bigger ovation. Lawler mentions that the amazing couple of Christian and Trish were taking photos at a studio last week. This is going to be a big night for Christian and Trish. The bell rings as the divas lock up. Trish and Gail go back and forth with right hands. Drop toe hold into the second rope from Gail Kim. Gail traps Trish into a corner and gives her a few kicks into the chest. Trish rolls out the ring and kills time and gets back in before the 10 count. When she gets back in, Gail gets an insiguri on Trish and goes for a cover and Trish gets her foot on the rope at two. Gail whips Trish into the corner and goes for a handspring elbow but Trish moves out the way and grabs Gail by the hair and throws her down. Trish gets a ddt on Gail and gets a near fall. Gail reverses a whip and rolls up Trish for a near fall. Trish ducks a clotheslines and gets a neckbreaker. Trish attempts a sharpshooter which draws a pop from the crowd but Gail rolls Trish up for a near fall. Gail dropkicks Trish and connects with a hurracanrana. Gail goes to the top rope for a moonsault but Trish moves out the way. Trish picks Gail up and hits the stratusfaction for the 3 count.
Winner: Trish Stratus


Christian, Trish and A-Train meet Eric Bischoff in the back. Trish is pleased to get a win in her country but was not pleased with what happened last night. She starts complaining about Eugene. She blames him for ruining Christian’s match last night, he couldn’t focus. Christian starts complaining about last night. He feels he’s done enough to warrant a title shot. Jericho, HBK, HHH and Rock have all had their opportunities and now it’s Captain Charisma’s time. Eric apologised to Trish for Eugene’s behaviour and he will talk to Regal about it when he meets him later on. He agrees with Christian that he’s more than worthy of a title shot but he will come to a decision later on. Christian decided that there is one way to convince Eric and that’s when he pins Benoit tonight in the 6 man tag match.

Match 2
Tag Team Title Tables Match
The World's Greatest Tag Team (c) vs The Dudleys

This is a rematch from last night but this time it’s a tables match. The Dudleys are lucky to receive another opportunity and if they lose tonight then it’s very unlikely to see them getting a title shot soon. Last night The World’s Greatest Tag Team made quick work of the Dudleys but tonight it’s a match which favours the Dudleys. Pinfalls and submissions are irrelevant in this match up. The match ends when one member of a team is driven through the table. Both teams make their way down to the ring and the bell rings. Haas and Benjamin waste no time and immediately attempt to grab a table from underneath the ring but The Dudleys meet them outside and stop them. Both teams brawl outside and The Dudleys sends the tag champs back in the ring. Back in The Dudleys get the early advantage by hitting some right hands on the champions. The Dudleys on a roll early against the champs. Bubba lifts Haas up on his shoulders and D-Von gets a backdrop neckbreaker on Haas. They hit the Wazzup drop and they want to end this quick. Bubba signals for the tables. They go and grab a table from outside but Shelton runs the ropes and dive's through the ropes, landing on the Dudleys on the floor. Now the WGTT are in control hitting some nice double team moves on The Dudleys. The Dudleys make a comeback and finally grab a table from outside the ring and they bring the table inside the ring. D-Von sets up the table in the middle of the ring. He places Shelton on the table and goes up to the top. Shelton quickly gets off the table and jumps on the top rope and hits a suplex on D-Von but quickly Bubba moves the table. Wise move by Bubba. Bubba places the table back in the middle. The Dudleys attempt a 3D on the table on Shelton but Haas moves the table out the way. Haas clotheslines Bubba to the floor.

WGTT hit their german suplex/superkick combo finisher. Now WGTT place the table in the middle. Haas lifts up D-Von on his shoulders as Shelton goes to the top as they attempt the doomsday device. Buh Buh gets in and moves the table and Shelton takes D-Von down with a clothesline. Haas gets another table and sets it up. The Dudleys set up the other table. Both teams are brawling in the ring until La Resistance run down to the ring with Johnny the Bull and Chuck Palumbo and attack both teams. Rene instructs Conway and Grenier to hit the au revoir on Shelton through the table. Haas gets tabled. Johnny the Bull and Chuck send Bubba through the table via a double powerbomb. La Resistance, Bull and Chuck celebrate in the ring. La Resistance are upset that they did not receive a tag title shot. Chuck and Johnny the Bull who were overlooked on Smackdown, wanted to make a statement on Raw and they certainly have.
Result: No Contest


Lance Storm Moment: A clip is shown of Storm winning the Intercontinental title, Storm’s t-shirt segment with Kurt Angle and Storm winning the tag team titles in 2002.

Backstage Lance Storm, Jericho and Benoit are standing by with Todd Grisham. Storm was disappointed that he lost last night but he can certainly make up for it tonight in his last match in his hometown. He wants to go out in style and it is an honour for him to team with two of his very good friends. Jericho promised not to let Storm down. They go back a long way when they teamed up in Smoky Mountain Wrestling as the Thrillseekers. Todd Grisham wants to know the name of the amazing move Jericho pulled off last night. Jericho calls his new finisher The Code Breaker and tonight he will beat Christian again. Jericho then turns his attention to Benoit and Jericho knows that Benoit is a fighting champion. They’ve had great battles in the past but never for the world title. HHH may be the #1 contender but he lost last night. Shawn Michaels may want another opportunity but Y2J also won last night and Jericho would like to test the rabid wolverine. Somewhere down the line he would like to have a title shot against Benoit. Benoit tells Jericho that he would love to step in the ring with Jericho again. Christian appears and interrupts them. He looks at Jericho and calls his win last night a fluke. He just spoke to Eric Bischoff and he’s going to make a statement tonight by pinning the world heavyweight champion Chris Benoit. Christian told them that they are an embarrasment to Canada and only he is the greatest Canadian star ever. Benoit fires back and states that a lot of guys want a shot at the belt but he never backs down from a challenge. Anytime, any place, he will make Christian tap. Christian had a smirk on his face and walks off.


Randy Orton’s music hits as the Intercontinental champion makes his way down to ringside. He comes out in a suit and tie and has a big smile on his face. Orton gets a mic and starts posing in the ring. He recaps what happened last night, he told everyone he would do what he said and he delivered. He did it all by himself. He became a legend last night and showed everyone a side of his that they have never seen. He never wanted to become sadistic like Cactus but if you mess with Evolution then you will pay a big price. Mick Foley last night paid the ultimate price by having his career ended. His wife started pleading with him to let Mick go but he gave Mick the biggest beating of his life. Now they will never forget this for the rest of their lives. He continued to talk trash about Mick Foley. Orton showed a video clip of his feud with Foley which showed only Orton getting the best of Foley. It showed Orton kicking Foley down the steps at Madison Square Garden last year, Orton spitting in Mick’s face and Mick walks out. Evolution defeating The Rock and Sock at WrestleMania and then Orton ending Mick’s career at Backlash. Orton continued to talk trash about Mick and his family until The Rock’s music hits as he comes down to confront Orton.



The Rock gets a mic and this is quite a moment. Orton has a big smirk on his face. He looks at Rock and said this is the first time they’ve actually spoken to each other and he wants to know what exact reason is the Rock out here for? Everyone thought he didn’t stand a chance against Mick Foley but he beat him at his own game. He ended his career. He beat Mick Foley without any help. What Rock did to Mick Foley at Royal Rumble 99 infront of Mick’s family was simply nothing compared to what Orton did to Mick at Backlash. Is Rock out here to congratulate Orton for proving he is a bigger legend than Mick Foley? The Rock looks at Orton right in the eye and says finally the Rock has come back to Calgary. Rock said yes this is the first time they’ve actually spoken to each other. He’s seen Orton run his mouth over the last 10 months, talking trash about Mick Foley. Now that Mick has gone, Orton is continuing to run his mouth about Mick and his family. The Rock said If Orton continues to talk about Mick’s family he’d put his foot up Orton’s candy ass. Crowd pops huge. Orton reminds Rock of the last time Rock tried to be saviour for Mick Foley it simply didn’t work out because at WrestleMania it was Rock and Mick’s comeback match and they lost to Evolution. He killed the legend of Stone Cold at Survivor Series and killed the legend of Mick Foley last night, by next year who knows he could be headlining the Hall of Fame. Evolution had an almost perfect night last night but Rock ruined it, he had to cheat to beat HHH. However that does not mean that Rock has now moved in contention for a title shot, HHH is still the #1 contender and he will always be better than The Rock. Infact since they’re both 3rd generation stars, Orton believes he’s even better than Shane McMahon and The Rock. Orton said he’s much better looking and much more talented than The Rock. The Rock should go back to Hollywood because the WWE has moved on without the Rock. Now it’s all about Evolution. Rock said is that what you think? Orton was about to talk but Rock cuts him off with his IT DOESN'T MATTER line. Rock then runs down Orton on the mic and tells him that he gets more pie than him in a lifetime. The crowd absolutely loved this and Orton gets pissed off. Rock said he whooped HHH’s ass last night and he’s ready to whoop some more ass tonight. Orton responded by saying he deserves respect. He’s the legend killer. He is the future of the WWE. Rock said he doesn’t give a monkeys crap who Orton is and what he did. There’s only one jabroni beating, pie eating, trail blazing, eye brow raising peoples champ THE ROCK and he’s going to whoop Orton's candy ass right now all over Calgary. He asked the people if they want to see Rock whoop Orton’s ass in the ring right now. Huge pop.


Orton says he’s tired, he’s sore and beatdown. He’s in no shape to compete tonight. He needs a rest for two weeks. If he wasn’t tired, sore and beatdown he would give Rock, the Mick Foley treatment. He does not want to unleash that side of his again and as of now on, he will not be competing in violent matches until he feels like he wants to. Just look at what’s happened to him, he had to cancel his date, look at his face. Look what he had to go through last night. He really wanted to defend his Intercontinental title tonight but he didn’t want to risk injury. Rock’s had enough and drops the mic and lays a right hand on Orton. He’s laying the Smackdown on Orton and knocks him over the top rope. He taunts Orton to get back in. Eric Bischoff’s music hits and he comes out on the stage. Eric tells Rock to stop right there. Eric states that of all the guys that competed last night, Orton is the one who needs the most rest. Orton is in no shape to compete tonight so he’s giving Randy the night off in ring action. However Bischoff states that Rock will be in action later on tonight against an Evolution member. A man who he’s never faced before in a one on one match and that man is fresh since he didn’t compete last night. That man is Batista. Bischoff states that a special guest referee will be named for this match later on. Orton had a big smirk on his face and Rock looks at Orton and tells him to just bring it.

Backstage William Regal scolds Eugene and tells him that uncle Eric will get mad at him if he starts doing sily things again. Eugene was a bit upset and told Regal that he wanted to play with Trish. She sounds like fun. Regal said she doesn’t want to play with Eugene. Maybe if Eugene becomes a wrestler then she may want to play with Eugene. Eugene gets excited and Regal told Eugene that he must listen to him. First of all the first week in training was a complete disaster as it went completely wrong. Finlay has decided not to go continue on with it. He wants Eugene to understand how this is all done. He promised to find someone who can motivate Eugene and help him become a wrestler because he can’t do this alone. It just won’t work. They go to Eric’s office and Eric is mad at Regal. Regal said it’s hard to control Eugene but Eric doesn’t want to hear excuses. Regal told Eric that training Eugene has so far been a disaster. When he showed Eugene a wrist lock, Eugene decided to be like George the animal Steele and started biting his hand. Eric decided to give Regal and Eugene two weeks off and in the next two weeks, Regal has to get Eugene ready. He doesn’t care who he gets to help him. When they return if Eugene does not learn how to wrestle, then he’s putting Regal back in the ring and Regal will wrestle the entire group of La Resistance in a handicap match. Regal did not like this but Eric told Regal to get out of here and start looking for someone to assist him in training Eugene.

Match 3
Shawn Michaels vs A-Train

Shawn Michaels is selling his knee injuries from last night. A-Train controls early with power moves on HBK. A-Train looked for a powerbomb but Michaels slipped out and went for an inside cradle for a two. Michaels sent A-Train into the ropes and gets a flying forearm. He sent A-Train into the ropes again but got met with a back elbow from A-Train. A-Train gets a backbreaker for a two. A-Train lifts Michaels up and gets body press slam. A-Train clotheslines Michaels over the top but HBK skins the cat back in and A-Train lays Michaels out with the bicycle kick. A-Train took his time for a cover and Michaels kicked out at two. A-Train continued to pound away at Michaels. He works on Michaels knee and goes to the top rope and misses a legdrop. Michaels rams the big A-Train's head into the buckle and goes to the top and gets a flying bodypress for a near fall. Michaels goes for a piledriver but A-Train counters with a backdrop. A-Train whipped Michaels into a corner and misses a charge, Michaels hit a clothesline and went to the top rope. Michaels scores with the diving elbow drop. Michaels tunes up for the band and he’s going to kick A-Train’s head off. A-Train stumbles back up to his feet and Michaels plants A-Train in the face with the superkick. Michaels went for the cover and got the three count for the win.
Winner: Shawn Michaels


Eric Bischoff meets Earl Hebner backstage. Crowd boos Earl heavily. Eric asked Earl if he wants to go ahead with it and face the fans. Otherwise he can appoint another referee. Earl thinks he is ready. He is nervous but he wants to get this off his chest and after calling the match down the middle he hopes that the fans forgive him.

Elsewhere The Dudleys meet The World’s Greatest Tag Team in the back. The Dudleys and WGTT decided to put their differences behind and wanted to get payback on La Resistance and Chuck and Bull. The Dudleys wanted to know if they are with them or against them. The Dudleys extend a handshake. At first WGTT are hesitant but they shake their hands.


Match 4
The Rock vs Batista
Special Guest Referee: The Coach


Eric Bischoff comes out on the stage and announced that THE COACH will be the referee. Eric comes down to do commentary and watch this match up close and personal. The Rock comes out first. Batista comes out next and Orton accompanies Batista down to ringside. Rock looks over at Orton and then looks at Coach. He then turns his attention to Batista as the bell rings. Rock immediately starts laying the smackdown on Batista by nailing a few right hands. Rock runs to the ropes and is met by a hard clothesline by Batista. Batista starts pounding on Rock in the corner. He then sends Rock to the ropes and gets a big back bodydrop. Batista gets a standing vertical suplex and goes for a cover. Coach does a fast count and Rock kicks out. Batista whips Rock into the buckle and Rock falls down. Batista goes for a sleeper. Crowd gets behind Rock and Rock gets up and fights out of it and clotheslines Batista. Rock gets a DDT and goes for a cover and Coach pretends to argue with Orton and doesn’t cover. Rock gets up and gets in Coach’s face and Batista jumps Rock from behind. He tosses Rock over the top rope and Orton lays the boots on Rock. He throws Rock back in. Batista starts manhandling Rock in the corner again and goes for a headlock. Rock gets out again and whips Batista to the ropes and hits a flying clothesline. Rock sends Batista to the ropes and gets a spinebuster. Rock sets up for a peoples elbow but Orton gets on the apron for a distraction. So Rock decides to follow Orton out and goes after him. Batista follows him out and attacks Rock. He sends Rock into the steel post. He sends Rock back in and gets a sidewalk slam. Coach again does a fast count and Rock kicks out. Batista hits a spinebuster and sets Rock up for a Batista Bomb. Rock slips out and counters with a ddt. Both men are down. Rock is up first and sends Batista to the ropes and gets a spinebuster. Rock goes for the peoples elbow again and he hits it. Rock goes for a cover but Coach doesn’t cover. He acts as if something is in his eyes. Rock lays the smackdown on Coach and sends him over the top rope. Orton gets on the apron and Rock throws him in and gives Orton some right hands. Rock clotheslines Batista to the floor. Coach calls for the bell and disqualifies the Rock for putting his hands on him.

Winner: Batista by Disqualification


The Rock goes outside the ring and brings Coach back in and hits a Rock Bottom on Coach. He sets up for a peoples elbow but Eric Bischoff comes down to ringside and tells Rock to stop right now. Rock can’t put his hand on an official. Eric gets in the ring. He lets Rock know that he was going to include The Rock in a #1 contenders match for next week but since he put his hands on Coach, he’s not going to get that opportunity. He announced a fatal 4 way # 1 contenders match for next week between HHH, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho and Christian. The winner gets a title shot the following week on Raw against Chris Benoit. The Rock won’t be receiving a title shot. Eric laughs and Rock gets pissed off and hits the Rock Bottom on Eric Bischoff. Crowd pop huge for this as Rock’s music hits. Rock makes his way back down to the ramp. Eric stumbles back to his feet and tells Rock that he made the biggest mistake of his life. You don’t put your hands on Eric Bischoff. Bischoff suspends Rock for a month. Rock runs back in and hits another Rock Bottom on Eric. Rock poses in the ring and leaves.

Backstage The Rock is leaving and meets a few officials and meets Rosey. Rosey gets his moment with The Rock. Rock then meets Eugene for the first time. Eugene starts marking out, he’s very excited to meet The Rock. Rock said it’s great to meet Eugene and he will see him after a month. Regal had a big smirk on his face and shouts that’s it i got it. He stops Rock and wanted to talk to him. He told Rock if he can have can quickly ask Eugene something. He whispered in Eugene’s ear and told him something. Eugene gets excited and goes over and hugs Rock. Rock is confused. Eugene says Mr Regal, he wants to be like The Rock. Regal explained his situation to Rock about Eugene. However Eugene is failing to co-operate with him and Finlay has given up on Eugene. He would have asked Chris Jericho but Jericho is too busy with his issues with Trish, Christian and A-Train. However since Rock will be gone for a month, he pleads with Rock to train Eugene and make him into a star. Eugene starts impersonating The Rock and Rock thinks about it for a few seconds and agreed to it. Big pop. This is also a good chance for Regal to get back at Bischoff for putting Regal in such a crazy assignment. Bischoff just suspended the Rock and Rock will now train Eric’s nephew Eugene to become a wrestler. Segment ended with Rock running Eric Bischoff down on the mic and saying his catchphrase. Eugene cuts him off by finishing off the catchphrase. Regal quickly stops Eugene and tells him he’s not supposed to do that, he looks at Rock and apologises and tells Rock to continue. Rock ends it by saying if ya smell what the Rock is cooking. Rock leaves and Regal is smiling and tells Eugene “Two weeks my boy, you will be a star.”

In the back HHH is with Evolution. He's glad that Rock is suspended. That’s one guy out the picture. Orton said just like Mick Foley, Rock's gone but when Rock returns from suspension, Evolution will destroy him. HHH feels that he shouldn’t have to go through a #1 contenders match but now that Rock’s out the picture, he is now getting close to getting his world title back. He vows to beat Michaels, Jericho and Christian next week and then he’s coming right for Benoit. HHH applauds Batista for the good job he did out there against Rock. He now has a plan. He wants Batista to face Benoit next week in a non title match, he wants Batista to soften up Benoit. Then when HHH wins the #1 contenders match then the following week he will face Benoit when Benoit won't be at 100%. He will beat Benoit and the world title will be around his waist again. Flair thinks this is a great idea. Batista agreed, he's going to tear Benoit apart.

Lance Storm Moment: More clips for Storm as they show Austin’s segment with Storm when he called Storm boring. Storm becoming a ladies man and finally Storm defeating Ric Flair last week on Raw.

Earl Hebner is the referee for this match and the fans boo him heavily. Fans start the “you screwed Bret” chants. The heels come out first. Storm is out next as he comes out to a great ovation. Jericho is out next followed by the world heavyweight champion Chris Benoit. Jerry Lawler points out that A-Train, Trish and Rob Conway are not out here as Eric Bischoff has assured Lance Storm that no one will get involved in his final match. However he’s appointed Earl Hebner as the referee for this match and Lawler says the big question is will Storm get screwed in his final match or will Hebner call this match down the middle?

The bell rings and the match is officially underway. Benoit is ready to start this off against Christian but Christian points at Jericho and he wants him in the ring. Benoit tags Jericho so it’s going to be Jericho starting this off with Christian. Christian wants payback from last night.

He tags in Rene Dupree and La Resistance start double teaming Storm. Dupree uses a reverse chin lock to slow down the match. Storm manages to fight out of it and goes to the ropes but Dupree levels him with a clothesline. Dupree tags in Christian. Christian connects with a suplex and gets a two. Christian distracts the ref as La Resistance double team Storm in the corner. Christian whips Storm to the ropes and Storm comes back with a spinning heel kick. Both men are down and Storm gets the hot tag to Benoit as Christian tags in Sylvan. Benoit takes Sylvan down with a clothesline, Dupree gets in and Benoit takes him down with a clothesline. The ref orders Dupree to get back in his corner. Benoit hits some knife edge chops on Sylvan. Benoit whips Sylvan to the ropes and gets a back bodydrop.

Midway through the match the heels are in control again as Christian is in the ring with Jericho. Christian takes Jericho down with a reverse ddt. Christian’s team make quick tags as they prevent Jericho from making the tag to his partners. Rene Dupree is in the ring, he does his french tickler taunt and gets a camel clutch on Jericho. Jericho is able to escape and Jericho takes Dupree down with a bulldog. He hits the lionsault and goes for a cover and Christian breaks it up at two. Jericho clotheslines Christian to the floor. He goes after Christian but Christian gets back in and Dupree starts hammering away on Jericho. Jericho comes back and nails him with a running insiguri. He tags in Benoit and Benoit goes for a crossface but Sylvan breaks it up. Christian is tagged in and Christian and Benoit exchange some right hands and Benoit comes back with more powerful rights.

He goes for the headbutt from the top rope but Dupree moves Sylvan out the way. La Resistance set Benoit up for the Au Revoir and they hit it. They go for the cover and Storm makes the save. Jericho and Christian fight up the ramp and Jericho knocks Christian down. Benoit and Storm double clothesline Dupree over the top rope. Benoit drops Sylvan with a german suplex. Storm who’s the legal man goes for a sharpshooter on Sylvan. This draws a huge pop from the crowd. Sylvan taps and Storm, Jericho and Benoit win.

Winners: Lance Storm, Chris Jericho and Chris Benoit


Storm, Jericho and Benoit celebrate in the ring. Earl Hebner did his job and he did not screw over Lance Storm. Christian looks on from the ramp and throws a tantrum. He did not get one over Benoit, Jericho and Storm tonight but next week he has the opportunity to become #1 contender if he wins the fatal four way match. Storm goes to the top turnbuckle and raises his arm in the air. This is Storm’s last match and he gets a great ovation from the crowd. Raw ends with Storm, Jericho and Benoit celebrating in the ring.



Next Week on Raw: #1 contenders fatal 4 way match: HHH vs Shawn Michaels vs Chris Jericho vs Christian

Non Title: Chris Benoit vs Batista


For The Rock/Orton promo I could have gone with Rock and Orton saying so much more but no point doing it all in one go. I will save the rest for some other time when Rock comes back from suspension. Next week Regal and Eugene also won’t be on Raw, so training skits with Regal, Rock and Eugene will be featured for my next two Raw shows.

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

Monday Night Raw Review

I'm liking Trips still being the number one contender, and I think you'll start to work Benoit into this Rock/Evolution feud soon hopefully.

I like that you went down the respect route here, and actually managed to get the hostile fans on the side of Shawn. Benoit vs Michaels would be great to see again, and I hope Michaels does earn himself another shot down the line. The chemistry between the three men you had there was good, and you seemed to capture Triple H very well, I really liked the line about the belt being his life.

Maybe some friction between La Resistance? It seems that Conway would be the one that is left out, but he was the one that seemed the most defiant about being Tag Champ.

I like this little Lance Storm bits, really going down the route that this is his night.

Ah, 2 Canadian Divas going at it, and really this can just give Trish a little boost, as she can now say she is Canada's finest.

Christian being pushed to the WHC scene? Sounds good, but we'll just have to see if he can hang with Benoit in the main event. I think that Christian still has some unfinished business with Eugene first, which could lead to a possible match down the line.

Ah okay, I'm glad that TWGTT retained, and I see that this was one of the few ways that they could keep the titles in a Tables match against The Dudleys. Showing off Bull and Chuck as well as La Resistance gives us a good look at your tag team division, and it is good there are at least 4 teams here, all of whom could contend for the straps.

The interview was good, and the way Benoit and Christian reacted hyped up the main event even more, and highlighted just how important it is for Christian to impress.

Orton is being built perfectly in your thread. Having a Hell in a Cell victory over Mick Foley will get any man over, and he is just a dick plain and simple. His Legend Killer gimmick is in full force. Rock coming out was expected, as he was standing up for his friend. I'm looking forward to seeing/reading Batista vs Rock later on.

I love Regal and Eugene in this. Regal is starting to actually care about Eugene, but still himself. Bischoff's threats making Regal's intentions clear.

Good way to keep Michaels strong, as losing here would have been bad for his momentum, expecially after only just losing to Benoit at Backlash. Its good to see that you kept his knee injury in there as well, and it hadn't magically healed.

Dudleys and WGTT alliance seems cool, and I think it will show off your tag division very well.

Coach. Rock not losing cleanly here doesn't hurt his credibility one bit, nor does it harm Batista.

The Fatal 4 Way match seems huge! and I can understand why The Rock wouldn't be included. The four guys you did pick are all worthy contenders however.

Oh this is going to be good. I can only begin to imagine what fun you could have with Rock and Euegene. And hopefully Rock will use Eugene to get a little revenge at Bischoff perhaps? I can see this being an authority feud, and then Rock will eventually get his hands on Eric.

Another big match added for next week, The Animal versus The Rabid Wolverine.

The perfect way to end the show and Lance Storm's career. He was always going to get the fall here and I am glad that he did. Christian got a bit of solid offence in on Benoit towards the latter stages of the match.

Overall a good show once again I apologize if this review was kinda lacklustre, but I'll still be reading and definately looking forward to the next show

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

Thanks for the review, I'm glad you liked the show and Raw next week will be a lot of fun. Most of the shows now leading up to my next ppv will be a lot promo heavy building up the ppv and future feuds. I wanted to give Storm a nice send off so it was nice to have him in the main event. My original plan was to do Storm vs Benoit but i didn't want Storm to lose so i went with an all Canadian match to give Storm a win. So it worked out well in the end. I decided not to feature Rock on every Raw show, this is why i went with the suspension angle. He will be there for skits with Eugene which will be fun. When he returns he will be featured on and off and will be involved in some major angles.



WWE Smackdown Preview

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX


WWE Smackdown
April 22, 2004


Smackdown opens with Paul Heyman backstage with his assistant Dawn Marie. Paul is in a great mood tonight. He finally got rid of the Big Show. Heyman states that tonight’s main event will be Edge vs Kane. He also set up a tag team match between John Cena and Rey Mysterio vs Val Venis and Matt Hardy. Dawn calls Paul a genius and Paul thanks her. Heyman says now that Big Show has gone, his worries are now over and now he can sit back, relax and enjoy Smackdown. The Smackdown video package airs as Tazz and Michael Cole welcome us to the show.


Match 1
Tag Team Title Match
The Hurricane and Shannon Moore (c) vs Chavo Guerrero Jr and Chavo Sr



Following their tag title victory last week, Hurricane and Shannon Moore were challenged to a match by The Guerreros for this week’s Smackdown show. This was quick and more of a comedy match. Chavo Jr starts with Shannon Moore. They lock up and Chavo Jr kicks Moore to the gut and takes him down with a hiptoss. He follows up with a dropkick and sends Moore to the ropes and Moore counters with a dropkick. Chavo Sr gets in and gets dropkicked by Moore. Hurricane gets in and Helms and Moore get a double dropkick on Chavo Jr. The ref orders Hurricane and Chavo Sr to get back in their corners. Moore tags in Hurricane. Chavo Jr tags his father in. Hurricane whips Chavo Sr to the corner and misses a charge as Chavo Sr stomps away at Hurricane. He distracts the ref as Chavo Jr ends up kicking Hurricane in the corner. Chavo Sr gets a suplex and tags in his son. Chavo Jr gets a backdrop and gets a near fall. Chavo goes for a sunset flip but Helms rolls out and hits the shining wizard. He makes the tag to Shannon Moore, Chavo tags in his dad as Shannon Moore gets a crossbody on Chavo Sr. Chavo Jr runs in and gets dropkicked by Moore to the floor. Helms gets a slingshot dive on Chavo Jr to the floor. Moore goes to the top and gets a flying crossbody on Chavo Sr and pinned him for the 3 count to retain the titles. After the match Chavo Jr throws a tantrum in the ring and his dad calms him down.

Winners: The Hurricane and Shannon Moore


In the back Kane is fuming backstage as he seems to be looking for something and it's not there.

Paul Heyman is very pleased with Matt Hardy and Johnny Nitro for what they did last week. They helped Val get rid of Big Show. Matt Hardy complains about Edge, last week Edge tried to attack him with a chair and fortunately it was Rey Mysterio who’s his opponent for tonight stopped Edge from hitting Matt with a chair. He asked Heyman what is he going to do about this. Heyman states that since Edge ruined the main event last week. If Edge thinks he will be added to the WWE title match, there is no chance of that happening. Infact Edge has damaged his chances even more now to get that title shot. He’s not just going to hand him a title shot just like that, he’s going to have to earn it but that won’t be happening for a while now. Tonight Kane will deal with Edge. Suddenly Rhyno shows up and he wants Hardy and Nitro. He wants to know why Hardy and Nitro attacked him last week. Matt told Rhyno that he let them down but the one he let down the most was Paul Heyman. Heyman sets up Rhyno vs Johnny Nitro and that is next. Rhyno wants Matt Hardy in a match at Judgment Day and Matt accepts the challenge. Heyman then rips into Rhyno and gives the reason why Matt and Nitro attacked him. Rhyno used to be a beast but he simply is not a beast anymore. Brock Lesnar used to be a beast but he became a coward and walked out. Rhyno has disgraced the legacy of ECW, it was because of Rhyno he had to have his mouth washed out with soap by John Cena. Now Val Venis will be taking care of Cena when he wins the US Title, just like he did when he beat Big Show. Something Rhyno couldn’t do. He’s now done with Rhyno and he slaps Rhyno and Rhyno loses it and grabs Heyman by the throat. Rhyno gets attacked by Hardy and Nitro. Heyman mocks Rhyno by yelling in his face GORE, GORE, GORE.


Eddie Guerrero meets Rey in the locker room. Rey apologises to Eddie for what Edge did last week. He shouldn’t have got involved in the match but he knows Eddie well, he believes in Eddie. Eddie was the underdog when he beat Brock Lesnar to win the belt and now he has his biggest challenge. He’s pretty sure Eddie will find a way to win. Eddie thanks Rey for the encouraging words, he's mad at Kane for what he did last week to his car and now he's also not pleased with Edge's actions last week. He wants to show Rey something. Eddie has Kane's old mask. Eddie said after what Kane did last week, he got into Kane's locker room and took his old mask, one of his prized possessions. Kane made him mad last week and now Kane will be mad when he finds out that he has his mask. He knows what sort of mindgames Taker and Kane are capable of, they like to get inside the head of their opponents and like to strike fear in them. Well he's also a master of playing mindgames and he doesn't fear them at all. Eddie wishes Rey luck. Eddie leaves and Edge shows up in the locker room. He wants to know who’s side Rey is on because this is the second time he’s interfered in his business. First when he took out Kurt Angle and last week when he was going to hit the chair on Matt Hardy, Rey stopped him from doing it. He wants to know why Rey did that? Why is he saving guys who he has a grudge with. Rey lets Edge know that he is not saving other guys, he is saving Edge from suspension, he is saving Edge from becoming a marked man, he is saving him from injury. Edge just returned from injury and if he’s going to become a crazed lunatic and go after guys then they will target him and they could injure him. He feels that Edge has change a lot, his attitude has changed, he’s become bitter and wants others to feel his pain. That simply isn’t fair because this is not the Edge he used to know. This is not the Edge who he won the tag title with, this is not the Edge that visited him in hospital when he was out with a knee injury. This is not the Edge who he visited the most, more than anyone when he was out for a year.



Rey wanted to know why Edge interfered in the main event last week. He had no business being out there. Now because of Edge, Eddie who’s also another friend of his is put into a tough situation. Now facing Taker or Kane in a one on one match is bad enough but facing both of them, thanks to Edge now Eddie’s title is in major jeapordy. Now because of all this, Edge has now put himself on the bad side of Taker and Kane. Edge has just come back and he’s going to make enemies if he continues assaulting other stars. Edge fires back and states that anyone who comes in his path of his success then he will run them down. He’s hungry for success, since returning he’s not ashamed of his recent actions. Rey thinks Edge has become selfish. Rey points out that he was eliminated in the battle royal but he didn’t hold a grudge against anyone by interfering in the main event. He too has a dream of wrestling for the WWE Title but he will some day get his chance but he has to earn it and he will. Rey hoped that Edge will also get that chance but after last week he harmed his chances of receiving a title shot. After interfering in the main event, what did it get him, nothing because Paul Heyman did not give him a free pass into the main event of Judgment Day. His actions have now resulted in a match later on tonight against the monster Kane. He wished Edge luck and hoped that Edge changes his ways. Edge states that he can’t change because now you will see a different Edge, a more ruthless Edge, he’s been sitting on the sidelines for more a year and seen guys climb the ladder of success. He was Smackdown’s fastest rising star last year and if he wasn’t injured, he would have been champion by now. What he missed out on, he will soon get, and he will soon be challenging for the title and tonight he will defeat Kane.


Match 2
Rhyno vs Johnny Nitro

This was very quick. Nitro gets a knee to the stomach and a shot to the head. He comes off the ropes with a forearm but Rhyno blocks and slams Nitro. Rhyno pounds away on Nitro and whips Nitro into the ropes and gets a flapjack for a near fall. Rhyno scores with a running powerslam. Nitro comes back and tries to go for an insiguri but Rhyno ducks. Rhyno goes in the corner and charges away at Nitro and hits the gore for the three count. Rhyno makes quick work of Nitro. Rhyno takes a mic. He states that Heyman and his group made a big mistake by putting their hands on him and beating Nitro now was just a start. Now Rhyno will show Paul Heyman what he’s all about.



Winner: Rhyno


Backstage Josh Matthews interviews RVD. Josh asks where Booker T is and RVD has no idea where Booker is. RVD is upset that they lost the tag belts but tonight they have the opportunity to get back in the tag title hunt as they face Kidman and London in a #1 contenders match. An official informs RVD that something has happened to Booker and he’s being attended to in the training room. RVD rushes to the trainers room.

A promo is aired for Judgment Day

In the trainer’s room, Booker T has a knee injury and Paul Heyman and Dawn Marie come in. Booker demands the match to be cancelled as the doctor says Booker can’t compete tonight. Dawn asks Booker if she can help, does he need a massage? Booker said he would love to. Paul Heyman told Booker that he's not getting no massage from Dawn. RVD sticks up for Booker and wants Heyman to cancel the match until Booker gets healed. Heyman said he can’t do that because Kidman and London also want that shot at the belts. They were so close to capturing the belts last week and they don't want to wait any longer. They want a shot at the belts as much as RVD and Booker. The reason why RVD and Booker aren’t automatically getting their rematch for the belts is because they were pinned by Kidman and London who went on to lose at the end to Hurricane and Shannon Moore. RVD and Booker T have three option. Either they forfeit the match and Kidman and London become #1 contenders. The second option is that RVD goes and finds a partner to represent Booker for just tonight. The final option is that RVD goes out there all by himself and competes in a handicap match. Choice is yours RVD. Booker thinks what Heyman is doing is completely unfair but he wishes RVD luck. Heyman leaves. RVD is sitting in the room thinking about what to do. Booker tells him not to worry, he's sure a lot of guys would love to team with RVD. The trainer helps Booker up but Booker wants Dawn to help him up. She helps Booker T up and Booker T hobbles out on crutches. Once out of view Booker T smiles wildly with Dawn Marie as Booker is sticking his tongue out. What is this all about?


In ring Segment with Kane and Eddie Guerrero

Kane’s music hits and he comes down and grabs a mic. He’s very angry. Ever since losing to The Undertaker at WrestleMania he’s become weak and blames Undertaker for brainwashing his father Paul Bearer. Kane complained about being the ruthless monster anymore, and vowed to return to evil ways. He wanted nothing to do with the Undertaker but they ended up on the same team in the lethal lottery tournament. However he wanted a shot at the WWE Title and for one night only he put his differences aside and progressed further in the tournament. Then in the battle royal they both co-win the battle royal so they would end up facing each other the following week. Last week he had to step in the ring with his brother again for the opportunity for the WWE Title shot but Edge stuck his nose in their business. Kane starts shouting that because of last week’s result, he has to face his brother again now at Judgment Day but in a triple threat match. Kane states that he will make Edge pay for what he did last week. It’s been 6 long years since Kane was last WWE Champion and now the Undertaker is still continuing to be a thorn in his side. Taker stands in his path. Kane buried him alive at Survivor Series, only for The Undertaker to rise again at WrestleMania. What’s been bothering him so much is that Taker has his powers back and he’s taken his father away from him. Now all the creatures of the night and all the lost souls answer to The Undertaker and that makes him angry. They were monsters who lived to strike fear into the hearts of normal men, now that Undertaker has come back he thinks he is superior than him. Kane states that he is superior than The Undertaker and all of these fans. Ever since he buried Taker alive, he was creating havoc in the WWE but ever since Taker returned, Kane’s world has been shattered and burned. He’s been living in darkness and shadows. It is killing him inside that his father is not by his side and the Undertaker has trapped him in a spell. He may have lost to the Undertaker at WrestleMania but he is still a monster and he shows no compassion. Kane demands Paul Bearer to come back to him. He wants his father to guide him to the top again by making him the WWE Champion for a second time. He starts screaming and shouting and goes outside the ring and shouts at fans and tells them that he is still a monster. He is angry and when he gets angry, bad things happen and promises to get revenge on The Undertaker.


Kane gets back in and then starts talking about the WWE Champion Eddie Guerrero. He sent a message to Eddie last week by damaging his car but now Eddie has something that belongs to him and not Eddie. He stole his mask and he wants his mask back right now. Although he doesn't wear the mask anymore, it was his true identity. He will not put it back on anymore but he always keeps it on him so it reminds him of his past. What he went through, by looking at his mask he wants normal people to suffer the same pain as he did. When someone makes him angry, he then makes them suffer. He wants Eddie to come out right now and give his mask back. He calls out Eddie Guerrero to the ring and Eddie’s music hits as the WWE Champion makes his way down to the ring. Eddie doesn’t come out in a low rider, he’s walking down to the ring with a bag in his hand. A mic is handed to Eddie and fans start an Eddie chant. Kane seems disgusted and tells Eddie that he envys him. Eddie lives a normal life and fans chant his name, they chant Eddie, Eddie, Eddie. Fans start a Eddie chant again. Kane continues on and said that he is living in a nightmare and Eddie needs to feel his pain. Since coming to Smackdown, he never had that opportunity for the WWE Title but now he’s finally got it and he’s going to become champion again. Ever since he took his mask off, he's become more dangerous but it makes him angry that he hasn't won the WWE Title for a long time. Eddie’s been living his dream by becoming champion but Kane will become his worst nightmare. Eddie states that he was expecting one opponent but he was never expecting to face two. When Undertaker and Kane won the battle royal, he knew it would be a tough task against one of them but last week Edge came out and ruined the match. This resulted in Paul Heyman giving him not one opponent but two monsters. So now the speculation begins that Eddie Guerrero’s reign will come to an end. A month ago on Smackdown after WrestleMania, he was teaming up with The Undertaker for the first time to take on Kane and The Big Show. Now he has to take on The Undertaker and Kane. He’s never faced Kane or Undertaker in a one on one match before. He’s not intimidated by Kane or The Undertaker and the only thing he has going for him is that every obstacle that’s been put infront of him, he’s overcome. He beat the dominant Brock Lesnar to become champion, when nobody thought he had a chance at all but he did it. He beat multi time champion Kurt Angle when people thought he was not fit to be representing Smackdown as champion but he proved everyone wrong. He proved that he can beat a giant when he beat Big Show a few weeks ago. If he can beat a 7ft tall Big Show then he’s pretty confident he can beat The Undertaker and Kane.


He’s lied, cheated and stolen his way to victories many times, and he will take advantage of Undertaker and Kane’s rivalry by holding on to his title. He’s worked hard to get to the top and now that he’s here he’s not gonna let it go. He may not be 7ft tall, 300 pounds, but he’s got what it takes to beat two monsters at Judgment Day. People thought he couldn’t overcome his personal demons but he did and he can certainly beat two demons like Kane and The Undertaker. All the fire that burns within him, he will unleash it on Kane and The Undertaker. Kane smirks and said Eddie doesn’t know what it feels like to be put through fire because he’s been through it. He is going to show no compassion on Eddie because he is going to take Eddie’s title and there is nothing that can stop him. He demands his mask back. Eddie then starts to get funny again and said you want your mask, here we go. He pulls out Kane's mask and threatens to throw it. Kane warns him and Eddie said you damaged my lowrider man and for that you also deserve to have your prized possession being taken away from you. Eddie asked the fans should he auction it or should he throw it in the crowd. There was more response for throwing the mask in the crowd. Kane warned Eddie not to do it and Eddie threw the mask as far as he could in the crowd. Kane gets out the ring and goes in the crowd to find it but he can't He's shouting loudly and Eddie is in the ring rolling on the mat laughing at what he just did. Kane gets back in and goes ballistic. Eddie jumps at Kane and starts brawling with him. Kane reverses a whip and gets a big boot on Eddie. He grabs Eddie by the throat and chokeslams him. Kane yells he will make Eddie pay for this.

Backstage Val Venis talked about how Lance Storm’s career ended this week and how his own career has now taken off again on Smackdown. He wanted to make a statement and he did. Cena shows up and Val explains his points why he feels he's better than Cena. He’s already made an impact on Smackdown by taking out the Big Show and now we will never see him again. What Cena couldn’t do in months, he did in one match. He states that he is a better wrestler than Cena and he’s going to take the US Title off Cena at Judgment Day. He claims that when he wins the title at Judgment Day, he will personally make sure that he just doesn't beat Cena, that he will embarrass Cena. Then he will restore some pride back into this title. He will go on to become the greatest United States Champion of all time. Cena hasn't paid his dues but yet is a champion and that makes him sick, and that he is going to beat some respect into Cena. Up next he's going to beat Cena. Cena fires back and said Val took out Big Show with the help of three guys. Cena says he beat Show by himself, and he beat Show to become US Champion. On the Smackdown show after Judgment Day he’s going to come out and Val will see Cena say “the champ is here.” Cena’s music hit’s as he walks off for his match.

Match 3
Rey Mysterio and John Cena vs Matt Hardy and Val Venis

Cena cut a rap promo on Val Venis and Matt Hardy. Rey comes out next. Val and Hardy come out and the bell rings as the match begins. Mysterio starts it off with Hardy. Rey gets a takedown on Matt, Matt gets up to his feet and breaks out and whips Rey to the ropes and hits a right hand on Rey. Matt gets a neckbreaker and goes for a charge and Rey gets his feet up and hits Matt in the face. Rey teases a 619 but Matt gets out the ring and grabs Rey’s leg and pulls him out. Matt stomps away at Rey and sends him back in and tags Val. Val gets a gutwretch suplex for a near fall. Val and Hardy make quick tags and Mysterio takes a pretty good beating throughout the match. Finally Mysterio makes a hot tag to Cena who is on fire. Cena knocks Val and Hardy down with a clothesline. Cena hits the throwback and then hits the five knuckle shuffle first drop on Hardy. Rey is tagged back in and scores with a hurracaranrana. The match continues going back and forth. Johnny Nitro comes down and Cena gets tossed outside the ring. Val and Hardy distract the ref as Nitro starts stomping on Cena outside. Back in finally Cena makes the hot tag to Mysterio and he takes Val down with a hurracanrana. Rey dropkicks Matt into the ropes and sets up for the 619. Rey hits the 619 followed by the west coast pop. Johnny Nitro distracts the referee. Val knocks Cena down on the apron and goes after him outside the ring. Hardy sets Rey up for the twist of fate but Edge runs down and goes for a spear but accidently spears Rey. Edge is stunned and Hardy clotheslines Edge to the floor. Hardy pins Mysterio for the three count to win the match for his team. Val, Hardy and Nitro celebrate. Cena is down on the floor but in the ring Edge helps Rey back up and Rey is angry with Edge for interfering. They argue for a bit but Cena is back in the ring and seperates both men from arguing. Edge walks off.

Winners: Matt Hardy and Val Venis


A new vignette is aired of the same mysterious man shown last week. This time he is talking about the day of reckoning. The vignette ends with the mysterious man laughing.

In the back, Kyo Dai are standing by with Josh Matthews. Funaki told Josh he is still the # 1 announcer for Smackdown but recently he’s been involved in more matches on Smackdown so now Josh is taking over announcing duties. Funaki states that JBL got half of his money back from them but he couldn’t take away Tajiri’s title. Funaki called JBL a big bully after what he did to them last week. They’ve enjoyed spending most of the money and now JBL can’t do anything about it as he was disqualified last week. Funaki also mentioned that they may not have won the tag belts last week but they still have the cruiserweight belt in their group and would help Tajiri hold on to it. Tajiri states that now that he’s still cruiserweight champion he wants to become the greatest cruiserweight champion of all time.


Match 4
JBL vs Rikishi

JBL comes out and states that he’s a man of his word so Tajiri keeps his money but it shows the class differerence between him and people like Kyo Dai. They get it the easy way and millionaires like JBL have to earn things the hard way. JBL felt he deserves an award for his noble act of not getting his money back now that Kyo Dai are keeping the money. After what he did to them last week, they won't get involved in his business again. If they do then he will teach them a lesson they will never forget. JBL says if the referee didn't reverse his decision last week then he would have sold the cruiserweight title and got his money back. He says by getting rid of the cruiserweight title he would have done a good deed because most of the cruiserweights we have on Smackdown are foreigners. By selling the cruiserweight title, the cruiserweights would have nothing to fight for and he would have loved to see that. Unfortunately that didn't happen but JBL did teach Kyo Dai a major lesson last week. He enjoys beating up foreign people. This gets him major heat.

JBL then runs down the Canadian fans and talked about the poor hospitality he had in this country. He gloats about The USA being better than Canada. He would have asked a Canadian fan to come in and shine his boots for $500 but he's decided not to do that incase the fan turns out to be like Kyo Dai and steals his money. JBL gets big heat for this. He then talks about Rikishi how he tried to interfere in his matters and promised to teach him a lesson he will never forget. Rikishi’s music hits as he makes his way down to the ring.

JBL and Rikishi lock up as they exchange rights and Rikishi gets a big right hand on JBL and kicks him over the top rope to the floor. JBL gets frustrated and Rikishi gets the early advantage in the match. He chops away at JBL and whips JBL into the corner but JBL gets his foot in the way and gets Rikishi in the face. JBL kicks Rikishi in the mid section and makes a comeback and starts kicking away at Rikishi in the corner. JBL charges at Rikishi but Rikishi tosses Bradshaw over the top rope to the floor. The action spilled outside the ring. Rikishi kicks Bradshaw in the face and attemps a whip into the post and it is reversed as Rikishi goes into the post. JBL rams Rikishi’s shoulder on the post and they get back in on time. JBL works on Rikishi’s shoulder and is ready to hit the clothesline from hell but Rikishi counters with a samoan drop. Rikishi drags Rikishi to the corner and goes for the stinkface. He backs his ass up in JBL’s face and gives him the stinkface. Rikishi hits for the banzai drop and JBL moves out the way. JBL puts Rikishi’s arm on the ropes and jumps on it. Rikishi stumbles up to his feet as JBL hits a clothesline from hell. He pinned Rikishi for the 3 count. JBL rolled out the ring and repeatedly hit Rikishi on the arm with a chair. The ref started counting and JBL stops. He doesn’t want the ref to reverse the decision again, just like what happened to JBL last week. JBL was just mad because Rikishi gave him the stinkface. JBL celebrates and leaves. Scotty 2 Hotty comes down with some officials and Rikishi is being helped to the back. Rikishi has hurt his shoulder.

Winner: JBL


In the back, Rikishi is being helped by Scotty 2 Hotty and officials. Suddenly Edge levels Scotty across the back with a chair and then assaults Rikishi. He threatens officials to move out the way otherwise he will nail them with a chair. Edge gives Rikishi a conchairto and drops the chair and leaves.

Tazz and Cole mention that Rikishi has hurt his shoulder and we don’t know how long he will be out of action for. They don't understand why Edge just assaulted Rikishi but we will hear an explanation from him later on.

In the back Spike Dudley meets RVD and offers to be RVD’s partner and the match is next.


Match 5
RVD and Spike Dudley vs Kidman and London

Winners get a tag title shot at Judgment Day. Spike is taking Booker T's place in this match. RVD and Spike work well as a team as they gain control in the early going by making quick tags. Kidman and London make a comeback by using double teaming tactics on Spike. The ref notices this and sends London back to his corner. Kidman gets a hiptoss on Spike and follows up with a dropkick. He whips Spike into the ropes and Spike counters with a backdrop. He makes the tag to RVD who comes in and nails Kidman with a spinning heel kick. RVD follows up with the rolling thunder and goes for a cover and London breaks it up. The match goes back and forth as Kidman and London are back in control as London turns Spike upside down in the corner as he hammers away at Spike with kicks to the neck and back and then dropkicks him and Spike falls down. He follows up with a kick and gets a near fall. Booker T comes out on crutches to watch this match from the ramp. London tags in Kidman and Kidman takes Spike down with a facebuster. London and Kidman again start double teaming. Kidman goes to the top rope and is about to hit the shooting star press but Booker T gets on the apron and hits Kidman with the crutch. The referee calls for the bell and disqualifies RVD and Spike and awards this match to Kidman and London. RVD is standing there looking confused.


Winners: Paul London and Billy Kidman


Kidman and London decide not to go back after Booker, they’ve won the match and are the new #1 contenders. They end up celebrating on the ramp. Spike Dudley gets in Booker’s face and wants to know why Booker did that. Booker gets his crutch and smashes it across Spike’s skull. RVD goes to check on Spike and Booker is standing there laughing. Spike is helped by officials to the back. RVD gets a mic and tells Booker so this is what Booker wants. Booker was playing all along as he was faking an injury so that they don’t get that chance to win the belts again. He wants to hear an explanation from Booker, why did he do this? Booker requests a mic. He tells RVD he’s been telling him for weeks that RVD is the one who’s been making major mistakes. He is sick and tired of carrying him. He blames RVD for holding him back. RVD responds back and simply thinks that Booker is jealous because he progressed further than Booker in the lethal lottery tournament. Then the following week, Booker got involved and eliminated him. Booker owns up and said yes it was an accident, he wanted RVD out. Booker says that he’s never been WWE Champion and now on Smackdown he has that opportunity but if he’s going to continue to team with RVD, he’s not gonna get that opportunity. He wants to do his own thing, he’s the biggest star on Smackdown. Take a look at his achievements, he was the most decorated star in WCW history. Since coming to Smackdown, RVD’s the one who’s made the mistakes, but this isn’t going to continue further now because he’s done with him. Booker kicks RVD to the gut and hits the Book-end. Rvd stumbles up and Booker hits the axe kick. Booker picks the mic up and says Good Friends, Bitter Enemies, now can you dig that suckaaa. Booker does the spinaroonie and leaves and laughs up the ramp.



Josh Matthews gets a few words with Booker T in the back. Booker T is laughing. He pulled one over RVD, he fooled everyone. Booker says after they lost the belts last week, he called Paul Heyman up and told him he wants nothing to do with RVD anymore. So he came up with this idea, he wanted to lead RVD on and made RVD look like a complete fool. He was sick and tired of carrying RVD. Booker states that now his priority is to become the WWE Champion but first he wants to get RVD back for pinning him a few weeks ago. Booker says he's better than RVD, he can beat him and will prove he was right that he was the better wrestler in the team. Booker T issued a challenge to RVD for Judgment Day and after what Booker just did, he is certain that RVD will accept his challenge.

In the back Edge explains why he attacked Rikishi. He saw an opportunity and decided to make use of it. Rikishi was hurt so he took advantage of it. The reason why he attacked Rikishi was because many years ago he ran down Stone Cold and put him out of action for a year. Edge was also out of action for a year, and he believed that Rikishi could do this again. He believed that Kurt Angle could get revenge on him by turning to Rikishi to go back to his old ways and run Edge down. This is why he got rid of the problem and made sure Rikishi will never be seen again in the WWE. Edge is confonted by Rey Mysterio who's angry at Edge for costing him the match earlier on. Edge claimed it was an accident. Rey told Edge he shouldn't have got involved in his match but what wasn't an accident is what Edge just did to Rikishi. Rey points out that Rikishi had completely changed and the fans have forgiven him. The fans love him again. He thinks Edge has completely lost it and now doesn't trust Edge anymore. Edge has become so bitter, he just attacked an innocent guy.

Edge told Rey he doesn't give a damn what Rey thinks, every time he attacks someone Rey gets involved in his business. From now on, he does what he wants on his own terms. He will do whatever it takes to get ahead. From now on there is nothing Rey can do about it. Paul Heyman shows up and berates Edge for what he just did to Rikishi. He lets Edge and Mysterio know that next week they will be teaming up together. Next week Rey will be facing his friend Eddie Guerrero as the team of Edge and Rey will face the team of The Undertaker and Eddie Guerrero. Heyman thinks this is a great idea to have Eddie teaming up with one of his opponents at Judgment Day and Mysterio did not like the idea of facing his friend. Edge did not like the idea of teaming with Rey again and also facing Taker. Heyman told Edge and Rey that they have been having a lot of problems recently but next week they just have to put their differences aside because this is the first time they will be teaming in a long time as a tag team. They are former tag team champions, maybe if they win next week their problems will be over and then they can start to trust each other again. Last week they were together but that was a 6 man tag but next week, they will have an even bigger task when they meet Eddie Guerrero and The Undertaker. Heyman then sarcastically wishes Edge luck on his match against Kane which is next.


Main Event
Edge vs Kane

Edge in his first singles match since returning from injury. Edge gets booed by his own Canadian fans, they aren't too pleased with Edge's actions for what he did to Rikishi earlier on. The match begins as Kane knocks Edge down with a right hand. Edge comes back with some right hands of his own. He goes to the ropes and gets a flying body press to take Kane down. Edge starts pounding away on Kane in the corner but he gets choked down by Kane. Kane gets a backdrop on Edge. Kane then attempts to ram Edge’s head into the buckle but Edge puts the breaks on and rams Kane’s head into the buckle and rolls Kane up for a near fall. Edge hits a clothesline and whips Kane to the corner and goes for a charge but Kane boots Edge in the face. Kane beats on Edge out of the ring and then back in again He boots Edge in the face.



Kane gets a sidewalk slam and follows up with a big elbow but Edge moves out the way. Edge goes to the top and hits a clothesline and gets a near fall. Edge connects with a Russian legsweep and then hits the Edge-O-Matic and Kane kicks out at two. Edge tries to cheat to beat Kane by putting his feet on the ropes but the referee sees it and gets Edge's foot off the ropes. Kane reverses a whip and takes Edge down with a clothesline. He hammers away at Edge into the corner. Kane hits a suplex and Edge kicks out at two. Kane goes for a chokeslam but Edge slips out and kicks Kane to the gut and hits the edgecution but Kane no sells and sits up. Edge can’t believe it and starts nailing Kane with some forearms. He whips Kane to the ropes but Kane reverses and scores with a big ddt and gets a near fall. Edge comes back again and backdrops Kane to the floor. Edge starts arguing with the referee but sees Eddie Guerrero coming down. Edge distracts the ref as Eddie runs down and levels Kane with the WWE Title belt and it’s payback for what Kane did earlier on to Eddie. He rolls Kane back in and leaves. Edge is setting up for the spear as Kane stumbles back up and Edge hits the spear. He goes for the cover and gets the 3 count to win the match. Edge celebrates and now the fans give him a mixed reaction.


Winner: Edge


The celebration is cut short as the lights go out as The Undertaker’s music hits, causing Edge to bolt from the ring and escapes through the crowd. Next week for Edge there is nowhere to hide as he will be in tag team action as he teams with Rey Mysterio to face The Undertaker and Eddie Guerrero. The lights are back on and we see Undertaker and Kane fighting each other. Kane ends up hitting a ddt on Taker. Kane looks at Paul Bearer and pleads with his father to come back to him as Paul just stares at him. Taker sits up and Kane turns around and walks into a chokeslam. Kane rolls out the ring and backs up the ramp and stares at Taker. Kane starts yelling Taker will pay for this. Taker kneels down on one knee and Paul Bearer raises the urn in the air as Smackdown comes to a close.

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

Smackdown Review

The Hurricane & Shannon Moore beating Chavo Sr. and Chavo Jr., I must say I found that match somewhat entertaining especially since Chavo Sr. and Chavo Jr. are a father-son tag team and we don't see much of those lately. But the finish of the match I must say I am pretty happy with, Moore and Hurricane deserved the victory

The Paul Heyman backstage segment with Matt Hardy, I must say I love that too because it in a way sets up Matt Hardy to be a future main event player here on Smackdown especially with him stepping up to challenge Edge next week and for Rhyno to get in Heyman's face like that, Rhyno does have guts. But what Heyman said about Rhyno was right, he is disgracing the legacy of ECW, and he slapped Rhyno. Then Rhyno grabs Heyman and is about to attack him until Matt Hardy and Johnny Nitro attack Rhyno from behind, that I loved a whole lot.

Rhyno beating Nitro does set him up to become a future #1 Contender for the U.S. Title somewhere down the road

The Rey-Edge segment made me think that something is going to happen and that Edge will turn on Rey soon because Edge doesn't need Rey Mysterio or Eddie or anyone because everybody has held him back from being WWE Champion and now that he is back, nothing will stop Edge.

The Booker T backstage segment with Paul Heyman and Dawn Marie, my favorite part of the show by far because I smell a rat as far as him & RVD are concerned. A heel turn for Booker T, I will support that because Booker T doesn't need RVD

Kane & Eddie segment I loved it because after the segment it proves to me that Kane could become WWE Champion after Judgment Day, and that Eddie has no chance especially against Kane and or Taker. Kane begging his father Paul Bearer to come back to him, that made me think that sooner or later Bearer is going to turn on Taker and side with his son Kane.

Val Venis segment with him taking pot shots at Lance Storm saying how his career is over and how he took out Big Show, and how he is going to beat Cena for that US Title, I sure hope Val beats him for the title. Val Venis as the next United States Champion looks good to me but I can easily see Cena beating Venis

JBL beating Rikishi, I must say that it was awesome, and that JBL he deserves to be a champion and it is only a matter of time before he becomes a champion on Smackdown

London & Kidman beating RVD & Spike Dudley, awesome tag team match especially when Booker came and he hit Spike with the crutch, and then after he turned on RVD by attacking him and saying Good Friends Bitter Enemies now can you dig that sucka, and then the spinaroonie to cap it all off, just shows me that Booker T doesn't need RVD anymore and that he will become WWE Champion at some point.

Edge beating Kane in the main event, that made me happy and what made me even more happy was seeing Taker come. The lights go out and Edge bolts as soon as Taker's music goes off. Then Kane & Taker are attacking each other until Taker chokeslams Kane to end the show and Kane swearing vengeance made me happy especially with Bearer just standing there when Kane was begging him to turn on Taker also made me think that Bearer will turn on Taker someday.

Overall great Smackdown show and I can't wait until RAW to see what you have in store for us!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

Thanks for the review. A lot of promos/backstage segments were used to help build the show for the Judgment Day ppv. I'm glad you enjoyed the show. Raw will be up tomorrow.



WWE News and Notes


World Wrestling Entertainment has come to terms on the release of WWE SmackDown Superstar Rikishi. We wish Rikishi the best in all future endeavors.

In real life during this time period, Rikishi wrestled his last match and then got injured. After this he never competed in a match for the WWE. He ended up being fired in July. So there is no point in me using him now, so Rikishi has been released. This is why i went with the injury angle and had JBL go over Rikishi. Then the backstage attack on Rikishi by Edge was to write Rikishi off and also builds up the slow and gradual heel turn for Edge.

Maven will be back in action in 2 weeks.

Plans are for Dawn Marie to manage Paul London and Billy Kidman, Torrie Wilson is going to be managing The Hurricane and Shannon Moore. As London and Kidman are heels, Dawn would be a good manager for them. Currently the plan is to go with a ladder match between the two teams for the tag team titles at Judgment Day.

Expect a big major surprise on Smackdown next week.

La Resistance will be using the Demolition style rule of three members during matches where they are involved in challenging for the tag team titles. It will always be different combinations. For example on Raw it could be Grenier and Dupree one week, the following week Conway and Dupree and so on. There are no plans in breaking the team up so do not expect the trio to have problems. However one of the members could end up getting drafted to Smackdown when the draft takes place.

The reason for turning the World’s Greatest tag team into faces is because i have more heels than faces. Plus Haas and Benjamin will soon start to compete in a lot of singles matches but will still remain a tag team.

WWE Raw Preview
April 26, 2004



Tonight four men will step in the ring in a fatal four way number one contenders match. The winner faces world heavyweight champion Chris Benoit next week on Raw. HHH believes that he should automatically get his rematch but since he lost at Backlash, other contenders are also in contention.

Who will be victorious tonight?

Chris Benoit will also be in action tonight as he faces Evolution member Batista in a non title match? Will Batista soften Benoit up for HHH or will Benoit make Batista tap out?
