Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

WWE Raw
April 26, 2004


The announcers welcome us to the show. Chris Benoit’s music hits as the world heavyweight champion makes his way down to the ring. Benoit is handed a mic. Benoit lets everyone know that since WrestleMania, he’s been having matches after matches and competition is getting stronger and stronger. He’s got too many contenders after his world heavyweight title but he doesn’t mind who he faces, bring them on because he will remain the world heavyweight champion. Benoit thinks HHH can play any type of game, but the result will be that HHH will tap again and again and again. HHH is sending Batista out tonight to face him in a non title match, well he’s beaten Batista before three weeks before he went on to become champion. Tonight he will beat make Batista tap out again and he hoped that HHH lost again so he would have to wait for his opportunity even longer. Benoit hoped that Shawn Michaels or Chris Jericho wins the # 1 contenders match. Christian’s music hits as he interrupts the world champion. Christian makes his way down to ringside with A-Train and Trish.

Christian feels disrespected because Benoit did not mention his name. He wants to know why Benoit doesn’t want to face Christian. Either he thinks Christian doesn’t stand a chance or he’s scared of him. Christian says since WrestleMania, he’s been on the rise. It’s about time he gets what he wants. He’s got the most beautiful woman in the world and now all he needs is the world title. Michaels, Jericho and HHH have all had many opportunities in the past, they’ve been champions but now it’s all going to change. Benoit’s team got lucky last week but Benoit did not pin or make Christian tap out. Benoit fires back and cuts an intense promo and tells Christian to stop whining and earn his way to a victory. He’s been doing the talking but he needs to get the job done in the ring tonight to prove he’s worthy of taking the title off him next week. Benoit was called a one hit wonder and he proved people wrong and he’s still the champion. If Christian wants to prove he deserves the shot then he’s gotta go past 3 former champions tonight. He needs to prove that he can get it done by himself without the help of Trish and A-Train. Christian says since Batista is going to soften him up later on, it won’t be for HHH, it will be for him. A-Train and Christian attack Benoit. A-Train hits the derailer and then Christian hits the unprettier on Benoit. Christian motions for the world title and has a big smirk on his face. Benoit has a match later on against Batista. What kind of condition will he be in?


Backstage Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas are having a conversation with the Dudleys. Since La Resistance have three members in their group, The Dudleys know La Resistance will be up to something. Chuck Palumbo and Johnny the Bull now feel they deserve to be in the title picture but they’ve recently just been traded to Raw and now they’re trying to jump the line ahead of the Dudleys. The Dudleys assured the champs that they have their backs. Haas and Benjamin thanked the Dudleys, they may not be friends but it’s good to see them putting their differences aside. La Resistance, Chuck Palumbo and Johnny the Bull had no business interfering in their match last week and they will get back at them. The Dudleys praised the tag team champions because no team have beaten them fairly in quick time and at Backlash, Haas and Benjamin proved to be the better team. They have earned their respect. However when the Dudleys get another opportunity at the tag titles, no matter who the champions are, they will beat them for the titles. Benjamin responds and says we will see about that. Both teams shake hands.

Match 1
Womens Title Match
Victoria (c) vs Jazz

Jazz gets another opportunity at the belt, she came up short at Backlash but now she has another chance. This was a longer match than they had on Sunday Night Heat at Backlash. Jazz and Victoria lock up and Jazz gets a waist lock take down on Victoria, Victoria fights back with a right hand and takes Jazz down with a clothesline. Jazz reverses a whip and takes Victoria down with a knee lift. Jazz gets a camel clutch on Victoria but Victoria manages to power out of it and knocks Jazz down with a spinning heel kick. Victoria starts kicking away at Jazz in the corner. Victoria sends Jazz to the ropes and Jazz counters with a clothesline. Jazz applies a half Boston Crab, Victoria tries to hang in there and she makes it to the bottom rope. Jazz whips Victoria to the corner and starts kicking away at Victoria. Jazz is in control and gets a suplex. She goes for the Jazz stretch and slams Victoria down to the mat. Jazz scores with a fisherman buster and gets a near fall. Victoria comes back and delivers a powerslam. Victoria goes to the top and gets a crossbody and Jazz counters with a roll up for a near fall. Jazz throws Victoria to the ropes but Victoria reverses and Teddy Long who’s not paying attention accidently trips up Jazz by mistake. Victoria hits the widows peak and gets the 3 count to win the match. Good womens match between the divas. Following the match Jazz argues with her manager, Teddy apologises and Jazz slaps Long and lays him out with a punch. She yells at him and tells him it’s over between them.

Winner: Victoria



In the back La Resistance are standing by with Todd Grisham. Todd asks them which 2 from the three will be in action tonight? Rene states that it will be a surprise just like it was last week when they came out and attacked the champions. It is about time La Resistance are respected. They were never even considered to be part of the 4 way double title tag match at WrestleMania. That was a great opportunity for them to win the tag titles. Then they were left off the Backlash card. Finally the tag champions promised them a match but they never got the match but tonight they have got the match and they will beat the self proclaimed World’s Greatest Tag Team for the titles. Todd asked if this would cause a problem if lets say they win the tag belts. Whoever doesn’t compete, how will he feel that he did not get the chance to be tag champion? Conway told Todd there won’t be no problem, they are a unit and told Todd stop trying to cause any trouble. Everyone will find out next which two members will go out there.

Match 2
Tag Team Title Match
The World’s Greatest Tag Team (c) vs La Resistance

Rene Dupree and Rob Conway are the ones that will be wrestling tonight for the tag team titles. Sylvan isn’t out here. Maybe they have a plan. Dupree tells the fans they are ignorant for not respecting La Resistance. They sing the national anthem of their country but get interrupted by Haas and Benjamin as the champs come out. The bell rings and both teams start talking trash. Haas and Benjamin start hammering away at the challengers and dropkick them over the top rope to the floor. Benjamin is going to start this off with Dupree. Shelton gets a headlock and sends Dupree to the ropes and takes him down with a shoulder block. Dupree comes back with a kick to the gut and sends Shelton into the corner and tags in Conway. La Resistance start double teaming Shelton and the referee orders Dupree to get back in his corner. Conway sends Shelton to the ropes and Shelton counters with a spinning heel kick. He tags in Haas who comes in and clotheslines Conway. Haas scores with a great german suplex. Haas gets a wrist lock on Conway and Conway pokes Haas in the eyes and gets a scoop slam. He tags in Dupree who takes control. La Resistance make frequent tags until Haas gets the hot tag and tags in Shelton. The match goes back and forth and Haas applies the Haas of Pain on Dupree. Conway gets in and boots Haas to the head and Shelton runs in and dropkicks Conway.

Shelton delivers a stinger splash to Dupree who moves out the way and Shelton ends up hitting the floor. Conway goes outside the ring and starts stomping away on Shelton. Haas whips Dupree and Dupree accidently knocks the referee down. Haas delivers a german suplex on Dupree but the ref is down. Haas goes to check on the ref. Sylvan runs in, and he switches with Rene and pretends to be knocked out. Haas revives the ref. Haas goes for the pin but Sylvan turns Haas over and rolls Haas up for the three count and La Resistance win the tag team belts. Sylvan rolls to the floor and hides under the ring. Another referee comes out and tells them that they cheated and show a replay.


La Resistance knock that referee down and the other referee tells them that he was going to restart this match but now he’s disqualifying La Resistance for putting their hands on an official. The Dudleys run down to the ring and save the other referee from getting assaulted. They pull Sylvan out from underneath the ring. TWGTT brawl with Dupree and Conway in the ring and the Dudleys roll Sylvan back in the ring. The Dudleys hit a 3D on Conway and hit one also on Dupree. The Dudleys get a table outside the ring and bring it inside. Chuck and Bull run down the ramp but they have second thoughts and decide to stay on the ramp since The Dudleys have a table on the ring. The Dudleys want TWGTT to table Sylvan. TWGTT hit a doomsday device by putting Sylvan through the table. Both teams high five each other and this is payback from last week.
Winners by Disqualification: The World’s Greatest Tag Team


Todd Grisham is standing by with Batista. He states that three weeks ago before WrestleMania 20, Benoit beat him. That was the first time ever that he tapped out in his career and tonight he will tear Benoit apart, he’s going to soften him up for HHH. Then next week HHH will be back on top.

Eugene Training Session with The Rock and William Regal

This was a long skit. Regal starts to explain to Eugene that he must follow his instructions. Eric Bischoff has put him in charge of preparing Eugene for Eugene’s first match which is in two weeks. He tried a week ago to get Eugene ready but it simply didn’t work out but now he has the most electrifying man in sports entertainment to assist him in training Eugene. Regal tells Eugene that he must listen to instructions from him and The Rock. The Rock told Regal he’s got this and told Eugene is he excited? Eugene is very excited. Rock tells Eugene that first he wants Regal to get in the ring with Eugene. Regal didn’t want to do this, he thought Rock would be getting in the ring. Regal decides to go ahead with it, maybe if he works stiff on Eugene, Eugene won’t go ahead with it and he can tell Bischoff that Eugene doesn’t have what it takes to be a wrestler. So this way Regal doesn’t have to take care of Eugene anymore. So Regal decides to get in the ring with Eugene and they grapple.


Regal works a bit stiff on Eugene and Rock tells Regal to take it easy and tells Regal for 5 minutes he has to be a dummy because he wants to see what Eugene can do. Regal can’t touch him. So the bell rings and Eugene just goes crazy on Regal. Regal starts screaming and shouting, he pulls Regal’s hair, bites him, licks his face and does silly things. So Regal pleads with Rock to stop this. Rock tells Eugene that he indeed needs a lot of work and for this session it will be Regal teaching Eugene. Rock just wants to mess around for a bit and have fun. So he lets Regal do his thing but tells him to go easy on Eugene so Regal teaches him basic grappling holds. Now it’s Eugene’s turn to do holds but he throws Regal down aggressively. This continues on with Regal teaching Eugene more basic holds, plus some submission holds. Regal taught Eugene how to do the claw hold, Eugene now does the same move on Regal and Regal starts shouting to Rock to tell Eugene to let go. Rock stops it. Rock tells them that’s it for this session and now they will have a break. In the next session, Regal will be taking a rest and the Rock will be teaching Eugene. Regal thinks this is a good time now for him to have fun with Rock for what he just put Regal through with.

In the back Eric Bischoff is with Coach as they look on the monitor. Coach says Boss did you just see that? Eric looks at Coach and they both start laughing. Bischoff then gets straight back to business by setting up an 8 man tag match for next week, 2 members of La Resistance team with Chuck and Bull as they face The Dudleys and The World’s Greatest Tag Team. Christian shows up with Trish and A-Train. He starts sucking up to Bischoff and Trish is glad that Eugene is not going to be on Raw for the next two weeks. Christian states that tonight is a big night for him. He already sent a message to the world champion Chris Benoit earlier on and tonight he will beat former champions Chris Jericho, HHH and Shawn Michaels. The only thing that worries him is that Evolution may get involved tonight and that could harm his chances of winning the match. He asks Eric if he’s going to do something about it. Eric told Christian that there will be no outside interference tonight so Evolution, Trish and A-Train won’t be there at ringside for the main event. Trish states that she’s Christian’s girlfriend at least she should be at ringside for support. Eric apologises to Trish but he just can’t do that because then if he lets her be there at ringside then he’s also gotta deal with Evolution. Eric told Christian he believes in him, he’s a pretty big supporter of Captain Charisma and he’s got to do this alone tonight. Christian says that’s fine, he is going to show his peeps tonight that the Jericho’s, The HBK’s and The Games times are over and now it’s his time to shine.

Garrison Cade is in the back with Todd Grisham. Cade talked about Lance Storm and how it was an honour to wrestle him. His first match last year was against Lance Storm. He will miss him. Todd Grisham asks Cade now that he’s split up with his tag partner, when will we see him in action? Cade says he’s ready to compete. Ric Flair shows up and confronts Cade. Flair told Cade that Storm was not a legend and he humiliated Storm at Backlash by making him submit. He looks at Cade and told him he may be young but he’s no Randy Orton, he’s not better than him. If Cade wants an opportunity on Raw then why doesn’t he step in the ring with the Nature Boy right now? Now that would be an honour for him to step in the ring with a legend. Whooo!!! What do ya say punk? Cade said before he was rudely interrupted by Flair he was more than ready to compete tonight and this is a great opportunity to make a name for himself by beating Ric Flair. He agrees to a match, Flair whoos him and slaps him in the face and walks off. Cade has an intense look on his face and the match is next.


Match 3
Ric Flair vs Garrison Cade

Flair is in control at the start of the match but Cade comes back with an armdrag. He gets a big clothesline and goes for a cover and Flair kicks out. He misses a charge and Flair chops away at Cade in the corner and then starts strutting in the ring. Irish whip and Cade fights back with a right hand and gets a backdrop on Flair. Cade gets a bulldog and gets a near fall. Cade gets a rollup and Flair kicks out at 2. Inside Cradle and Flair again kicks out. Flair is getting frustrated now and Flair comes back with the classic thumb to the eye. Flair delivers a suplex and gets a knee drop. Flair applies the figure four and makes Cade submit. Flair wins. Cade put up a hell of a fight but that’s a hell of a competitor that he’s trying to beat and Ric Flair taught Cade a lesson in the ring. This is so far a very good night for Evolution.
Winner: Ric Flair


Shawn Michaels is standing by with Todd Grisham. Michaels mentions that he almost came close to winning the belt at Backlash and took Benoit to the limit. Now he has another opportunity to get a match against Benoit but he has to go through three men. He will be victorious tonight and next week he will beat Chris Benoit to become the new world heavyweight champion.

Match 4
Non Title: Chris Benoit vs Batista

Benoit comes down to the ring selling his injuries from the attack earlier on from Christian. The match starts with both locking up and Batista uses his strength to knock Benoit down. Batista starts posing and flexing his muscles. They lock up again and again Batista throws Benoit down. Batista starts stomping away on Benoit as he dominates the match in the early going. Batista backs Benoit into the corner and lands a few knees to the gut. Batista sends Benoit into the corner and goes for a charge and Benoit moves out the way. Benoit rolls Batista up for a near fall. Benoit gets some vicious knife edge chops on Batista and delivers a great snap suplex for a near fall. Benoit starts working on Batista’s leg as he attempts an early sharpshooter but Batista kicked him away. Benoit fought back and tried to do a sunset flip, but Batista countered by lifting Benoit up and connects with a chokebomb and gets a near fall. Batista is near the ropes and kicks Benoit to the gut and goes for the Batista bomb but Benoit slips out and gets the crossface. Since Batista is near the ropes, he has his foot on the bottom rope. Benoit isn’t letting go and the ref starts the count and Benoit breaks it up. Batista rolls outside the ring and holds on to his arm and now the big man is getting frustrated. Batista is back in and Benoit starts stomping away at Batista. He whips Batista into the corner and goes for a charge but runs into a boot by Batista.

Batista is now in control as he hits some power moves such as the side walk slam, back breaker and a powerslam. Batista then gets a bear hug and Benoit fights out of it. Benoit and Batista are exchanging a few hits. Benoit attempts to fight back with a few chops to the chest. Benoit hits the german suplex and hits four more, very impressive to do that to Batista. Benoit goes up to the top and goes for the flying headbutt but Batista rolls out the way. Batista launches Benoit into the corner with full force. As Benoit struggles to his feet Batista attempts the Batista bomb but Benoit backdrops Batista to the floor. Benoit goes right after Batista and Batista launches Benoit into the steel post. Batista rolls back in the ring as the ref starts the count. Benoit is back in by 8. Batista batters Benoit in the corner and starts taunting Benoit. Benoit manages to duck a right hand to deliver some chops. He takes Batista to the top turnbuckle and delivers a superplex on the big man and gets a near fall. Benoit attempts a sharpshooter and tries to turn Batista over but Ric Flair comes down the ramp and Benoit lets go. Flair taunts Benoit and that’s enough for the distraction as Benoit turns around and Batista catches him and hits a big spinebuster. Batista starts posing again. Batista lifts Benoit up on his shoulders and drops him down hard with the Batista bomb. Batista goes for the cover and gets the 3 count to win the match. Batista just beat Chris Benoit. What a huge win for Batista. Flair notices his old rival Hall of Famer Harley Race in the crowd and he walks over to him and yells whooo in his face and walks off. Batista and Flair celebrate on the ramp and Benoit is back up on his feet and he’s very annoyed that he lost this match.
Winner: Batista


In the back Batista is celebrating with Flair and Orton. Flair mentioned that his old rival Harley Race was in the crowd. Orton tells Flair he’s going to go out there right now and make a statement. HHH walks in and praises Batista, he is so impressed with him. He knew Batista would get the job done. Last week he beat The Rock and now he beat Chris Benoit. Now that’s how Evolution rolls. HHH said Rock got what he deserved and now that he’s suspended that’s one guy out the title picture. Rock thought by getting a fluke win over him would get him a title shot but that didn’t happen. The belt is his, and next week it’s coming back to Evolution. He’s waited for a long time now to get his hands on Chris Benoit and tonight he will beat Michaels, Jericho and Christian. HHH states that Benoit hasn’t proven nothing yet, and when he gets his rematch next week, Benoit’s dream will be over. Batista fires HHH up and says go get them champ.

Randy Orton and Harley Race Confrontation

Randy Orton’s music hits as he makes his way down to ringside. Orton told the fans that he’s still pretty banged up and he will be in action next week. Last week Rock came out to confront him, if he was not banged up he could have easily beaten The Rock but next week he will be back in action. As for The Rock, Rock ended up being humiliated in Canada and now he’s gone for a month. That’s the price you pay when you mess with Evolution. It’s been a huge night for Evolution, Ric Flair won his match earlier, Batista beat Chris Benoit and later on HHH will become the # 1 contender and will beat Chris Benoit for the title next week. This leaves him, since he isn’t in action tonight he’s come out here to address something that’s been bothering him. He looks at the crowd and turns his attention to Harley Race who is in the front row. Orton doesn’t understand why Harley Race is called a legend. The only true legend around here is him. A month ago, Harley Race was inducted in the Hall of Fame. Orton thinks it’s a travesty that Race was inducted because what he’s achieved in his 2 year career is more than what Race accomplished in his entire life. He wants to know why this old has been is in there before him and his father Cowboy Bob Orton.

Orton asks Race to get in the ring and explain why he is in the Hall of Fame. What has he done to become a legend and be inducted in the Hall of Fame. Race isn’t getting in the ring. Come on old man, get in the ring right now. Orton left the ring and walks up to Race. Orton states that his father Cowboy Bob Orton was way better than Harley Race. Evolution’s Ric Flair is better than Harley Race and the nature boy even today is still going strong. Orton asked Race is he out here to congratulate Orton in retiring Mick Foley? Race has finally had enough of Orton as Orton gets back in the ring and Race enters the ring. Race is handed a mic. Race gives his reasons, he tells Orton many reasons why he’s a legend and was inducted in the Hall of Fame. First of all the WWE Hall of Fame was not the only HOF he’s been inducted in, he’s been in many including the WCW Hall of Fame. He’s been an NWA world heavyweight champion on many occasions something Orton hasn’t achieved. He’s had a great rivalry with Orton’s mentor Ric Flair. Race says he made Flair’s career. Race continues on as he said he main evented the first ever Starrcade ppv as the heavyweight champion. He was also a great manager and finally he’s been KING OF THE RING something Orton hasn’t been yet. Orton gets pissed off and tells Race that the legend killer Randy Orton hasn’t even hit his prime yet and has achieved so much. The next ppv which will also feature Raw stars is the King of the Ring which is 7 weeks from now. Orton told Race that he will become King of the Ring. Being King of the Ring will add to his list of amazing accomplishments that he's achieved so far in the WWE. Orton suddenly drops Race with an RKO and starts posing in the ring.

Chris Jericho is standing by with Todd Grisham. Jericho gives his thoughts on what happened earlier tonight to Benoit. Jericho calls Christian a coward and a creepy little bastard. He’s going to ruin Christian’s big moment tonight. He reminds us that a few months ago he made a big sacrifice. Eric Bischoff still owed him the Survivor Series favour so he wanted a title shot. However Bischoff punished him and he had to give up his title shot for saving Trish in a match against Christian. This was obviously a set up as Trish and Christian pulled one over him at WrestleMania. Now that he has another opportunity at the world title, he’s not going to let his go. He’s been to the top before and he wants to become champion again. Tonight he’s going to go through that jackass Christian, HHH and Shawn Michaels and will become the #1 contender.

Eugene Training Session continued.

Now The Rock takes over. The Rock really motivates Eugene here. Regal yells at Eugene to show an aggressive side against Rock but Eugene is slowly starting to know the holds that Regal taught him earlier and works well with Rock. Rock teaches him submission holds. He calls Regal over to be a dummy again as he’s going to teach Eugene the peoples elbow. Regal freaks out and told Rock, he thought he was going to have a rest? Rock said he needs Regal to assist him here. He won’t hurt him, the impact will be slow. So Rock hits the Rock Bottom, peoples elbow on Regal. He teaches Eugene other various holds such as The Stunner, The Pedigree. Regal was very very exhausted here and now it’s Eugene’s turn to hit the move. Regal gets out the ring and doesn’t want Eugene to perform these finishing holds on him incase he does it wrong. Rock is like come on William, you need to help him out here afte rall, Regal was the one that came to The Rock. Regal gets back in and asks Rock to tell Eugene to take it easy. Eugene goes crazy and hits finishing moves on Regal and Regal is screaming in pain. He ends it with an aeroplane spin. Regal starts shouting and tells Eugene to let go. Regal is very dizzy. That’s it for today, the training session is over. Eugene goes over to Regal and says are you ok Mr Regal? Regal puts on a miserable face. Eugene really enjoyed the training session and Rock then told Eugene next week he will teach him catchphrases and the training will continue and Eugene will have an exhibition match.



In the back, Eric Bischoff was quite impressed, somehow The Rock has worked some magic here to turn Eugene into a fine athlete. Eric knew he made the right choice to have Regal taking care of Eugene. Eric told Coach that he will be taking on Eugene next week in the exhibition match so he orders Coach to get hold of Regal so he can see them next week for the match. Coach did not like this at all.

He goes to the top rope but Jericho jumps to the top rope and executes a superplex on HBK from the top rope. He goes for a cover and Christian breaks it up. Christian whips Jericho into the turnbuckle and goes to the top and delivers a spinning corner ddt and gets a near fall. Christian gets a boston crab on Jericho and HHH gets an Indian death lock on Michaels at the same time. The faces reverse the holds and the heels are hanging in there desperately trying to make the ropes. They make the ropes. The action goes back and forth as Christian looks for the unprettier on Michaels but he counters into a back suplex. Michaels goes to the top rope and hits an elbow drop on Christian. He goes for a cover and Jericho breaks it up. Jericho has saved Christian but he’s not really saving Christian, he doesn’t want Michaels to win the match.

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

RAW Review

Benoit opening the show was definitely the right move considering how he is the World Heavyweight Champion and how he has to defend his title against the winner of the Fatal 4-Way Match later on tonight and that he was running down 3 out of the 4 wrestlers but not mentioning Christian made me think that Christian for sure is going to win tonight

And then Christian coming down interrupting Benoit by saying how Benoit is scared of him and that if they should face off, that he will become the new World Champion and Benoit told him to earn a victory, now I definitely cannot wait until the Fatal 4-Way match later on tonight, and I won't be surprised if Christian does in fact win the title next week

Backstage with the WGTT and the Dudleys talking about La Resistance and the fact that they have 3 members in their group almost guarantees that they will be up to something and then saying how Palumbo and Johnny the Bull had no business interfering in that match, which makes me think that these 4 tag teams will have a Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Match for the World Tag Team Titles at the next RAW PPV, hopefully leading to a face turn for WGTT.

Jazz losing a match against the WWE Women's Champion Victoria again definitely means that Jazz will either go to the back of the line or that Jazz might turn face and if she does, she doesn't need Teddy Long anymore anyways because he was holding her back

La Resistance backstage with Todd Grisham, that segment I loved a whole lot as to me they are a unit, and that it doesn't matter which 2 members go out there, all that matters is that they become World Tag Team Champions and I can definitely see that happening for them somewhere down the line

WGTT beating La Resistance by DQ was the right call especially considering that Sylvan got involved and the 3 of them started to beat down on WGTT until The Dudleys came to the rescue and then WGTT hitting a Doomsday Device on Sylvan sending him through the table was awesome, and Johnny The Bull & Palumbo trying to get involved again but having second thoughts was good because then that way they save their energy for when they get their shot at the tag titles whenever that happens to be

Batista's interview with Todd Grisham about having to face Benoit, one of my highs for the night, Batista tapped out and that is something that he will never do again, Batista made a believer out of me when he said that. I can definitely see him being Benoit now.

Eugene training segment with Regal & The Rock, I loved that a whole lot and Bischoff & Coach seeing the segment on a monitor, that was awesome only for Christian, A-Train, and Trish to come in, and then Bischoff making the rules that A-Train & Trish, and Evolution are all banned from ringside to make this match fair, that is a very good call. Then Christian saying how he is going to win the Fatal 4-Way match tonight, I can definitely see him doing it now!!!!!!

Flair beating Cade, definite right call for this one

Michaels's interview with Todd, another high for me

Batista beating Benoit, I knew it, but Benoit I have to admit put up one hell of a fight but came up short, awesome match all around for both men. Then Flair coming out to celebrate with Batista made it all the more sweet and what made it even more sweet was when Flair saw his old rival Harley Race in the crowd and he did a Woo right in Race's face, that was disrespectful of Naitch but still it was awesome. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Evolution backstage celebrating with Batista after his win, that was even more awesome, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!

Orton and Harley Race's segment together was pretty awesome and then Orton RKO's Harley Race to end the segment, which made me think that if he could do that to Harley Race, then he definitely deserves a mega push. Orton if he is in the King of the Ring tournament I can definitely see him winning it!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Eugene segment continuation was pretty good, maybe Eugene he can compete in the King of the Ring tournament in 7 weeks, imagine if Eugene were to win that, that would be the biggest upset in WWE history especially if that were to happen, too unfathomable to even contemplate!!!!!!!!!!!

Christian wins the Fatal 4-Way Match, I am so happy as you definitely made the right decision here, that is for sure!!!!!!!!!! Christian vs. Benoit in the main event of next week's RAW, can't wait!!!!!!

Overall great RAW and I cannot wait until your Smackdown episode!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed the show. The shows will soon continue to get even better. Smackdown will hopefully be up tomorrow.

WWE Smackdown Preview
April 29, 2004



Tonight on Smackdown, Eddie Guerrero and the Undertaker will have their first confrontation since they teamed up a month ago on Smackdown. Tazz will be conducting an interview with the WWE Champion and the phenom. Last week, Eddie had a confrontation with Kane which resulted in Eddie receiving a chokeslam from Kane. Will the Undertaker make a statement tonight on Smackdown? Later on the Undertaker and Eddie Guerrero will be teaming up in action as they will face the team of Edge and Rey Mysterio. Will The Undertaker and Eddie Guerrero co-exist as a team? Last week Edge hit Rey Mysterio with the spear by accident. What kind of effect will this have on their match tonight?

Once good friends but now bitter enemies. Last week Rob Van Dam was betrayed by his tag team partner Booker T as Booker T had enough of RVD and attacked his partner. Tonight is the night for RVD to get his revenge. RVD will be teaming up with John Cena as they take on Booker T and Val Venis. Will Booker T actually compete in this match? Will Booker come up with another excuse to get out of this match since he knows that RVD will be coming for revenge.

Paul Heyman has also set up a match between Rhyno and the big red machine Kane. Is this another plan of Heyman to punish Rhyno?

Also tonight Paul Heyman has set up an 8 man Texas Tornado Cruiserweight match to determine the # 1 contender for the cruiserweight title at Judgment Day. This means that all cruiserweights will be in the ring at the same time. Who will become the #1 contender for the cruiserweight title? All this and more on Smackdown.

Confirmed Matches
Eddie Guerrero and The Undertaker vs Edge and Rey Mysterio
John Cena and RVD vs Booker T & Val Venis
Kane vs Rhyno
Kidman vs The Hurricane
8 Man Texas Tornado Match to determine the #1 contender for the cruiser title: Chavo Guerrero Jr vs Spike Dudley vs Jamie Noble vs Nunzio vs Johnny Nitro vs Scotty 2 Hotty vs Akio vs Funaki

WWE Smackdown
April 29, 2004

Edge and Rey Mysterio confrontation

The announcers welcome us to the show. Tazz and Cole put over a confrontation between Eddie Guerrero and the Undertaker later tonight. They will also be teaming up tonight to face Edge and Rey Mysterio. Edge’s music hits as he makes his way down to the ring. Edge gets a mixed reaction. Edge is handed a mic and Edge talks about his recent actions. He felt what he’s doing is right and he is eliminating any obstacle that comes in his way. Kurt Angle was one and he got him out the way. Rikishi was always going to be a threat to him so he got him out the way before Rikishi got to him. After the negative reaction he received last week by his own Canadian fans, he’s just about had enough of the fans. Since coming back to Smackdown, he hasn’t been getting the reaction he deserves. If they don’t respect him, then he doesn’t respect them either and all these fans don’t deserve it. When they should be on his side after what he went through, yet they still boo him. He called them hypocrites for cheering a guy like Kurt Angle who put him out of action for a year. These fans still cheer Rikishi who ran over their hero Stone Cold. He had to do what is right and now all he wants to be is WWE champion at all costs. Rey Mysterio’s music hits as he comes out to confront Edge. Edge is not happy to see Rey out here. Edge tells Rey that last week he told Rey not to interfere in his business again so why is he out here.


Rey thinks Edge is blind by ambition. Edge’s theme brings up a question, you think you know me, but Rey thinks he doesn’t know Edge well enough. He thought he did but since coming back, this is not the Edge he used to know. This is not the Edge he won the tag titles with. Rey brings up a point that he was the one who visited Edge the most in hospital when Edge was out of action for a year. Rey thinks Edge is now becoming a lot like Booker T. Edge takes offense to this. He reminds Rey and the fans about all the pain and physical theraphy he had to go through to get back to where he is. Now that he’s back, all these fans don’t show any appreciation for him at all. Rey thinks what Edge just said about the fans is completely wrong. Edge just came back from some serious potential career ending injury, the fans welcomed him back but Edge didn’t respect them back. Edge said now he doesn’t give a damn about these fans, he doesn’t care about crowd support. Mysterio reminds Edge that last week Edge’s own Canadian fans were booing him out the building while earlier on they were chanting 619, 619for him. Tonight they have a tag match tonight and as a team they were former tag team champions. Edge points out that if he gets to pin the champion tonight then maybe Paul Heyman will take notice and give him the title shot he deserves. He talks about neither of them having a match at Judgment Day yet until....

Paul Heyman comes out on the stage and tells Edge that he actually has no problem with him. He just hates the fact that Edge had to ruin the finals of his lethal lottery tournament. He does however have a problem with Mysterio when he along with many others turned his back on him just before WrestleMania. He has a problem with Eddie because since becoming champion, Eddie has mocked him. He has a problem with The Undertaker because he tombstoned him and he had to wear a neck brace but he doesn’t want nothing to do with him. Edge butted in and said Paul was overlooking him. He said the last time he overlooked him, he then took his frustrations out on others. He doesn’t even have a damn match at Judgment Day. Smackdown can not be called the land of opportunity if Edge is not given an opportunity. Paul states that he is fair but on Smackdown you don’t get handed things the easy way, you have to earn it. If Edge pulls a Booker T like last week, then there will be consequences. Edge promised to make a statement tonight. Paul proposes a very special match at Judgment Day. He is giving the fans a match they have never seen before. For the first time ever at Judgment Day, Edge will face..... REY MYSTERIO. Good luck, Heyman drops the mic and leaves. Edge and Rey stare at each other.



Josh Matthews is standing by with RVD. What we just saw now was two friends(Edge and Rey) being forced to compete against each other at Judgment Day. Here we have a man who was betrayed his friend last week. RVD was having fun teaming with Booker but it was Booker who didn’t want to team with him. All Booker cared was for himself and simply didn’t want to be a team player. After what he did to him last week, RVD promises to get revenge on Booker T and accepts Booker’s challenge for Judgment Day. The act that Booker put on last week by faking an injury, RVD wants to turn this for real and Booker will be the one who will be walking on crutches.

Match 1
8 Man Texas Tornado Match to determine the #1 contender for the cruiserweight title
Chavo Guerrero Jr vs Spike Dudley vs Scotty 2 Hotty vs Akio vs Funaki vs Nunzio vs Jamie Noble vs Johnny Nitro



All cruiserweights will be in the ring at the same time. The first man to score a pinfall or submission will become the # 1 contender for the cruiserweight title. The winner will face the cruiserweight champion Tajiri at Judgment Day. JBL’s music hits as he comes down to do commentary. Cole and Tazz don’t understand why JBL is out here but we will find out as Tony Chimmel introduces the cruiserweights. JBL explains that he’s out here to watch the action. JBL says this match wouldn’t be happening if the referee did not reverse his decision last week. He would have sold the cruiserweight title and then all these cruiserweights in the ring would have no title to compete for. The bell rings and it’s already chaos in the ring as the cruisers battle it out. Spike knocks down Chavo with a right hand, Akio and Funaki get a double dropkick on Noble. Nitro tossed Scotty 2 Hotty to the floor. Nunzio goes to the top and hits a missile dropkick on Spike and goes for an early cover but Chavo and Nitro break it up. Akio and Funaki brawl with Nunzio and Noble on the floor. Chavo pummels Scotty in the corner and Nitro starts pounding away at Spike. Scotty fights back and delivers a backdrop suplex on Chavo and goes for a cover and Nitro breaks it up. Chavo gets tossed to the floor. JBL starts running down all the cruiserweights especially the foreign cruiserweights. JBL starts talking more trash about the foreign cruiserweights and says “all these illegal citizens need to be deported. They are a disgrace to this country. That damn Chavo is a mexican jumping bean. His fat father is over the hill and shouldn't be even competing in the ring, he's a disgrace. Nunzio should be locked up because he has connections with the mafia and Kyo Dai are thieves who stole his money.” Michael Cole was like come on JBL stop making these accusations and JBL said this was the damn truth. Tajiri is shown watching the match on the monitor and JBL talks trash about Tajiri saying he’s lucky to have that belt back. Noble, Nunzio, Akio and Funaki are back in as Noble hits a tigerbomb on Funaki and Akio breaks it up. The fast paced action continues as Akio goes to the top and hits a moonsault on Chavo but Funaki breaks it up. Akio argues with Funaki and now Kyo Dai go at it and JBL loves this. Akio sends Funaki to the ropes and Funaki hits a dropkick. Funaki climbs the ropes and gets a tornado DDT on Akio. Noble breaks it up. Noble and Nunzio start to work together and hit a double flapjack on Funaki. A lot of guys tried their finishers such as Nitro, Spike and Scotty but when they went for a cover, they were pulled off.

Nunzio drops the Sicilian Slice on Spike but Chavo makes the save. Noble gets Spike up in a firemans carry and gets the knees to the guts. He goes for a cover and Chavo breaks it up. Funaki avoids a charge from Nunzio and slingshots himself into a hurracanrana on the outside. Funaki and Akio are outside the ring and laugh at JBL. JBL gets pissed and warns them. The action continues to be fast paced as everybody ends up outside the ring except Noble. Noble goes to the ropes and attempts a dive on Scotty but Scotty moves out the way and Noble hurts his knee. Noble is screaming in pain and officials come down and Noble gets helped to the back. The match is over for Jamie Noble. The action continues as the rest of the cruiserweights are back inside. Chavo hits the brainbuster on Spike, he goes for a cover but Nitro breaks it up. Nitro gets tossed to the floor by Chavo. Chavo dropkicks Funaki to the floor. Scotty takes Nunzio up to the top for a superplex but Nitro knocks them off the top tope as they land on Funaki. Spike gets tossed to the floor by Chavo. This leaves Chavo in the ring with Spike. Chavo misses a charge and Akio delivers a dropkick. He goes to the top and hits a moonsault. Wait a minute, JBL gets inside the ring and as Akio goes for a cover he pulls Akio off Chavo and stomps away at Akio. JBL nails Akio with the clothesline from hell. Nunzio is back in and goes to the top rope but JBL catches him in mid-air and hits a fallaway slam. Chavo is back up and argues with JBL and tells him to get out the ring. JBL pretends to leave and as Chavo has his back turned he gets jumped by JBL. JBL hits a powerbomb on Chavo. Outside the ring Nitro whips Scotty to the ropes. Spike attempts to get back in and he’s on the apron but Nitro throws him down to the floor. Nitro is watching outside. Funaki is in and charges at JBL and runs into a big boot. JBL hits the clothesline from hell. Nitro slides in and JBL yells at Nitro to make a cover and Nitro pins Funaki for the 3 count to become the #1 contender. Nitro rolls out the ring and backs up the ramp to celebrate and leaves. JBL has a smile on his face and poses in the ring. Tajiri runs down and Scotty 2 Hotty gets in the ring as they pound away on JBL. Scotty’s revenge on JBL for what he did to Rikishi last week. All the cruisers get in and circle JBL and then proceed to beat the hell out of JBL. The cruisers dump JBL to the floor. JBL retreats to the back and he is livid.
Winner: Johnny Nitro


Matt Hardy and Johnny Nitro are standing by with Josh Matthews. Hardy hoped that Rhyno gets torn apart by Kane. It’s not Rhyno’s career on the rise, he’s going downhill while Matt Hardy is the one on the rise. Rhyno is going to get a lethal dose of Mattitude at Judgment Day. Nitro points out that he’s only been here for a month and he’s already the #1 contender for the cruiserweight title. The future looks good for Johnny Nitro and at Judgment Day he will become the cruiserweight champion.

Match 2
Kane vs Rhyno

Kane comes out first followed by Rhyno. As Rhyno enters the ring Kane quickly attacks. He starts throwing Rhyno around the ring. Kane lays the boots on Rhyno in the corner. He then whips Rhyno to the corner and follows up with a ddt and gets a near fall. Kane goes for a whip again but Rhyno counters with a shoulder block. Rhyno takes Kane down with a clothesline and gets a big shoulder to the gut. He charges into Kane and Kane counters into a powerslam and gets a near fall. Kane goes to the top rope and takes Rhyno down with a clothesline. Rhyno reverses a whip and hits the gore on Kane. He goes for a pin and Kane kicks out at 2. Rhyno can’t believe it. Kane and Rhyno exchange right hands, Rhyno comes across the ropes and Kane hits a big boot to Rhyno right in the face. Kane delivers a sidewalk slam and then sets up for the chokeslam. Kane hits the chokeslam for the 3 count to win the match. Following the match Matt Hardy runs down and stomps away at Rhyno and drops him with the twist of fate.
Winner: Kane



Backstage JBL is furious. He issues a challenge to all the foreign cruiserweights at Judgment Day. He is going to run the gauntlet, a 4 on 1 International challenge gauntlet. JBL vs the World. He wants the Mexican Chavo Guerrero, the Italian Nunzio and the Japaneese, Akio and Funaki. He wants a sneak preview of that match by challenging 2 American Cruiserweights that stuck their nose in his business. He wants Spike Dudley and Scotty 2 Hotty in a 2 on 1 handicap match next week. They should be ashamed to call themselves Americans. He’s setting some rules. There will be no outside interferences from any of the cruiserweights next week. Spike and Scotty won’t be in the ring together at the same time, they have to tag. JBL promises to make an example out of Spike and Scotty and then at Judgment Day he will win the international gauntlet. He claimed that when he wins the gaunlet, he deserves to be given an award or trophy.

The Undertaker and Eddie Guerrero confrontation


Tazz conducts an interview with The Undertaker and Paul Bearer. This is Taker and Paul’s first in ring interview together in a long time. Paul Bearer wants to make his situation clear that he is not going to go back to his son Kane. He assures the creatures of the night that he’s not in co-hoots with his son Kane. Paul has been ashamed of his Kane’s actions since Kane lost his mask. What he did to The Undertaker at Survivor Series was a despicable act and The Undertaker made him pay at WrestleMania. Since WrestleMania, Undertaker has been making Kane’s life miserable. For the creatures of the night there will be time to rejoice when he leads The Undertaker once again to the WWE Title. Undertaker starts talking about revenge and that is what motivates him right now. What Kane did has awakened a beast who has laid silent for a long time. At Judgment Day not only will he defeat Kane, he will also end the reign of Eddie Guerrero. Tazz then introduces Eddie Guerrero who comes down to the ring to confront the Undertaker. Eddie says he has a lot of respect for Taker for what he’s done in this business but he’s not intimidated by him. He’s looking right in Undertaker’s eyes and tells him that he is not afraid. Undertaker looks at Eddie and tells him that Eddie currently posseses the one thing he desires the most and that’s the WWE title. His sole purpose in this lifeless world is to collect the souls of the unfortunate people who step in his path. He’s already been crowned the king of darkness and when Eddie comes face to face with The Undertaker, he will show no remorse, no mercy and when it’s all set and done he will fall victim to the Undertaker.

Eddie states that when that bell rings he won’t have a soul either esse. The only thing standing between him and continuing his dream are two walking nightmares called The Undertaker and Kane. He gave his heart and his soul for the WWE title and he’s not going to let two monsters take away his title that easily. Taker says that he has seen the best, he has fought the best and he has beaten the best. Eddie can’t lie, cheat and steal against The Undertaker. By committing these sins, Eddie will find out why he is the most feared entity in the WWE. Kane appears on the screen and warned both men that soon Judgment Day is approaching and for them. The re-emergence of his brother The Undertaker at WrestleMania has fueled the flames of memory that burn. He sent a message to Eddie Guerrero last week and challenged The Undertaker to a casket match next week on Smackdown. Next week he will tombstone The Undertaker straight to hell and then he’s coming for Eddie Guerrero. The Undertaker accepts Kane’s challenge and says Kane will Rest in Peace. Kane starts laughing as the screen goes out. Eddie stares at Taker and leaves as Taker motions for the belt.

Dawn Marie is in the back with Heyman. Dawn asks Paul she loves her job as an assistant but she could offer a lot also as a manager. She asks Paul if it’s ok with him if she can go and ask around if any guys would like to be managed by her. Paul thinks it’s a great idea and anyone would love to have Dawn as their manager.



Match 3
John Cena and RVD vs Booker T & Val Venis

Booker T’s music hits and he comes down to the ring and gets booed heavily. Booker is laughing. He gets a mic and lets the fans know that last week was a very satisfying moment in his career. The boos get louder. He doesn’t understand why fans are booing him. He wanted to move forward in his career and what he did to RVD last week sends a loud and clear message to the fans that he is going to become the number one star on Smackdown. Booker claims he’s better than the WWE Champion Eddie Guerrero, he’s more quicker than Rey Mysterio. He’s better than John Cena, The Undertaker and he’s certainly better than RVD. He talks trash about the fans and said it’s about time they appreciate him. None of these fans wanted Booker T to succeed, they wanted to see him being held down. All of his partners in the past he achieved bigger success than them. When he was teaming with Stevie Ray, he was held down. When they broke up, his career took off. Then in the WWE when he teamed with Goldust he was held down. When he split with Goldust, he was getting title matches. The same situation occurred when he teamed with RVD and now on Smackdown he’s going to prove he’s a bigger star than RVD. He did the right thing last week because if he continued to team with RVD then it would have gotten him nowhere. He’s been tag team champion before, but he’s never been the WWE Champion. Booker T points out that the last time he had a one on one heavyweight title match on ppv was at WrestleMania 19. Now that is a travesty and from now on things are going to change around here on Smackdown. Once he’s done kicking RVD’s ass at Judgment Day, the WWE Title will soon be around his waist now can you did that suckaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

RVD’s music hits as he runs down to the ring and the former partners go at it. Booker whips RVD to the ropes but RVD ends up nailing Booker with a spinning heel kick. RVD goes to the top rope for the 5 star frog splash but Booker rolls out the ring and backs up the ramp. RVD taunts Booker to get back in. RVD goes after Booker and Val Venis runs down to the ring and they start double teaming on RVD. Cena’s music hits as he runs down for the save. The match hasn’t officially began yet, finally the bell rings as the action starts. RVD and Val start off as Val gets an armdrag and a headlock. He knocks down RVD with a shoulder tackle. RVD fights back with some kicks. Lots of back and forth action here, with a strong start by Van Dam and Cena. They exchange quick tags until Booker is tagged in and Booker and RVD finally go at it. Booker decides to bail out but RVD goes after him. He chases Booker outside the ring until Val drops of the apron and catches RVD with an axehandle. Booker rolls Van Dam back in and gets the advantage for his team. Van Dam comes back with a right hand to Booker and then knocked Val off the apron. RVD gets a back drop on Booker followed by a rolling thunder. Booker just manages to kick out at 2. RVD takes Booker down with a spin kick. He goes to the top for a crossbody and connects. RVD executes a kick to the jaw of Booker and goes for a cover and Val breaks it up. Booker T ends up tagging Val, Val ducks a right hand and connects with a Russian leg sweep. Val then delivers a fisherman suplex and gets a near fall. Van Dam fights back and whips Val to the corner. He then crushes Val with a split-legged moonsault in the corner and only gets a 2 count. He tags in Cena.

Cena is now on fire and takes Val down with a shoulder block, he then hits the five knuckle shuffle and gets a near fall. Cena gets a hiptoss and then hits the throwback and gets another near fall. Val reverses a whip and takes Cena down with a bulldog. Val starts pounding away at Cena in the corner and then dumps him to the floor. Val tags in Booker. Back in Cena was on the receiving end of a back suplex and a knee to the gut. Booker T goes for a scissors kick but Cena counters with an FU but Booker grabbed the top ropes to hold on. Val comes in and gets a right hand on Cena and RVD runs in but the ref stops him and orders him to go back to his corner. Finally Cena makes the hot tag and RVD takes Val down with a clothesline, Booker goes for a kick, RVD ducks and executes a roundhouse kick on Booker. Cena and Val brawl on the floor with Cena ducking a right hand from Val and FUs him on the floor. Booker wastes a lot of time and does the spinaroonie but RVD is back up and catapults Booker into the corner and hits a spin kick. He goes up to the top and connects with a five star frog splash. He pins Booker for the 3 count to win the match. RVD taunts Booker and celebrates with Cena in the ring.
Winners: John Cena and RVD


A new vignette is aired of the same mysterious man shown last week. Again his face is not shown but he’s talking in darkness. He talks about living in darkness and shadows and how he likes to make people suffer. At the end of the vignette it says coming soon to Smackdown.



Backstage Chavo Guerrero Jr fires up the rest of the International Cruiserweights on Smackdown. He knows they don’t all see eye to eye but after what JBL did they need to put their differences aside. They accept JBL’s challenge for Judgment Day. Chavo is fed up of losing, he wants to get back to winning ways. He wanted to make history with his father by winning the tag titles but they didn’t win. He wanted to become the #1 contender for the cruiserweight title but he didn’t win and neither did the rest of these guys. JBL got involved and it’s about time they shut him up. They will show him that cruiserweights are not to be disrespected. He is proud of his Mexican heritage. JBL has made it personal by also disrespecting his father and he will pay for this. Nunzio said he’s proud to be Italian and he’s never won the cruiserweight belt but tonight JBL robbed him of an opportunity. At Judgment Day will show JBL that cruiserweights can hang in there with a bully like JBL. Nunzio knows how to take care of bullys, he may be small but he's tough and he proved that when he was the leader of the FBI. Funaki says him and Akio also have issues with JBL and the cruiserweights will embarrass JBL at Judgment Day. Chavo Classic is not pleased with what JBL had to say about him. JBL called him over the hill and a disgrace. He's still got a lot of fight left in him and since JBL is in action next week, he challenges JBL to a match the following week. Chavo Classic says at Judgment Day he will be in the corner of the international cruiserweights.


Match 4
Kidman vs The Hurricane

A clip is shown of Velocity as Paul London defeated Shannon Moore. Now on Smackdown Kidman will be taking on the Hurricane. They lock up and exchange holds in the early going. Kidman delivers a flying head scissors and follows up with a dropkick. He throws Hurricane to the floor and London throws Hurricane back in. Kidman sends Hurricane to the ropes and Hurricane counters with a shining wizard. He goes for a cover and Kidman has his foot on the ropes. Hurricane now throws Kidman to the floor and this time Shannon Moore throws Kidman back in the ring. The action continues as Kidman is back in control as he gets a face buster for a near fall. Hurricane tries to fight back with some elbows but Kidman drops him with a running knee lift. Kidman hits a quick insiguri and tries for a shooting star press but Helms is back up on his feet and goes to the top and takes Kidman down with a frankensteiner. Both men are down. Hurricane is first to get to his feet. Hurricane connects with a dropkick and follows up with a back body drop. He goes to the top and gets a flying body press for a near fall. Hurricane hits the hurrislam for a near fall. Kidman reverses a whip and takes Helms down with a clothesline. Kidman goes for a powerbomb but Helms slips out and hits the eye of the hurricane. Helms goes for a cover and gets a 3 count to pick up the victory. Following the match Paul London tries to attack Helms from behind but Shannon Moore gets in and Helms and Moore hit a double dropkick on London. They send him to the floor with a clothesline. Kidman gets a mic and he believes him and London will win the tag team titles at Judgment Day. They want to put on a match that the fans will remember for ages. Paul London then talks and wanted a ladder match for the belts. Hurricane and Moore accept and it’s on. Helms and Moore raise the tag belts in the air and taunt Kidman and London as they back up the ramp.
Winner: The Hurricane


In the back Kidman is annoyed that he just lost. Dawn Marie approaches them and offers her managerial services to them. She asks them if they want her to guide them to the top. They will climb that ladder and win the tag team titles. She starts teasing them and assures them if they accept her as a manager, they will be tag champs very soon. Kidman and London just stare at her and say yes. Dawn says great. Now since Torrie is a good friend of Hurricane and Shannon Moore it’s now likely that she will be in their corner. As she’s also an assistant to Paul Heyman, she’s decided that next week we have an intergender six person tag. Dawn Marie, London and Kidman vs Torrie, Hurricane and Shannon Moore.

Edge and Rey are standing by with Josh Matthews. Josh asked them now that they are facing each other at Judgment Day, what impact will this have on their tag team match next?
Edge never expected this, he wanted to discuss team strategy with Rey but now he also has his mind on his match that is set for Judgment Day against Rey. This will not affect their match. Rey isn’t he’s not too pleased with Heyman’s announcement but the current problems and their match will not affect their friendship. Rey asks Edge what sort of strategy does Edge have in mind. Edge thinks the best way for Rey not to clash with his friend Eddie is to let him go in the ring with Eddie. So whenever Taker is tagged in, he will tag Rey in. Rey said this isn’t strategy, Edge just wants nothing to do with The Undertaker. Last week he ran away from Taker but next, there is nowhere to run and nowhere to hide. Edge gets pissed off. He believes that he’s better than Rey and more deserving of a title shot than Rey. He believes that he can beat Rey and will beat him at Judgment Day. After beating Rey, this will hopefully convince Paul Heyman that Edge deserves a shot at the title. Rey said he is looking forward to their match at Judgment Day but their main priority at the moment is their match next. He wants Edge to focus and be a team player and not let his anger get the better of him.

Edge responds back and tells Rey he’s more of bigger team player than Rey. He’s won the tag team championship on many occasions, he has more tag team match experience than Rey. Although his goal is NOT to go back to winning the tag team titles, Rey can certainly count on him on having his back for tonight. For one night only, Edge and Rey Mysterio will team again and will be victorious. Then at Judgment Day we will find out who the better man is. Rey extends a handshake and Edge shakes his hand. They start walking off until Scotty 2 Hotty confronts Edge for what he did last week. Rey apologises to Scotty on Edge’s behalf and Scotty doesn’t want Rey to apologise for what Edge did. He thinks Rey is making a huge mistake for trusting Edge. Edge yells at Rey and tells him not to apologise to Scotty because he is not ashamed of his actions. He told Scotty to beat it as he has a match next. Scotty gets in his face and Edge beats him up. Rey restrains Edge and attends to Scotty. Edge yells you’re supposed to be with me, not him. He tells Rey either you’re with him or me. Rey is not pleased with Edge’s actions and starts walking.


Main Event
Edge and Rey Mysterio vs Eddie Guerrero and The Undertaker



Edge comes out first followed by Rey. Eddie Guerrero comes out next followed by The Undertaker. The match begins and Edge waits to see who is going to get in the ring first. It looks like The Undertaker is starting off first so Edge tells Mysterio to go in first. However it isn’t Taker who starts but Eddie gets in so this confuses Edge. Rey and Eddie start it off. Edge now better hope when he gets in the ring he faces Eddie and not The Undertaker. Rey and Eddie start with a handshake and this doesn’t go too well with Edge. They lock up and Rey uses his speed early but Eddie takes Rey down with an armdrag. They continue to exchange holds as Rey runs into Eddie and Eddie counters with a tilt a whirl backbreaker. Eddie goes for a cover and gets a near fall. Eddie hits a suplex. He goes for a leghold but Rey kicks Eddie into the ropes and teases an early 619 only for Eddie to escape. Rey gets a sunset flip on Eddie for a near fall. Rey connects with the head scissors and then makes the tag to Edge. Edge wants Rey to lift Eddie up and Edge goes to the ropes and hits a clothesline. Nice double team move. He goes for a cover but Taker steps in and looks at Edge and Edge breaks up the count as he wants nothing to do with Taker. This was the only time Rey and Edge worked as a team, throughout the match they were constantly arguing and not working as a team. Edge starts assaulting Eddie in the corner. Eddie fights back with a right hand and delivers a back suplex to Edge. Eddie makes a tag to the Undertaker and Taker steps in and Edge immediately rolls out the ring. He wastes time and the ref starts the count. Rey instructs Edge to get back in and fight. He wants to tag Rey in but Rey told Edge to get in and compete. Taker has had enough waiting and goes right after Edge who Edge runs back in and starts laying the boots to Taker. Edge goes to the ropes and attempts a clothesline but Taker grabs Edge by the throat. He goes for a chokeslam, Edge elbows out and gets a clothesline on Taker.

Edge starts to mock The Undertaker and even does Eddie’s taunt. Taker sits up and Edge stomps away at Taker to keep him down. He whips Taker to the ropes and Taker counters with a huge flying clothesline. He goes old school on Edge and goes for a pin and gets a near fall. Taker delivers the snake eyes in the corner and as Edge staggers out to the middle of the ring, Taker nails him with a huge boot to the face. Edge tags Rey and doesn’t want anything to do with Taker anymore. Rey gets in and looks like we will see Rey vs Taker now, however Taker extends his arm to Eddie for a tag. So now it’s Eddie vs Rey again. The match goes back and forth with several near falls. Rey and Eddie are the legal men and Edge and Taker end up brawling on the floor. Taker starts stalking Edge to the back until Kane comes down the ramp and starts brawling with Taker allowing Edge to escape. Edge gets back in the ring in his corner. Kane and Taker continue brawling. Paul Bearer shows Taker the urn and tries to pull him away from Kane. Taker goes for a swing on Kane and accidently nails Paul. Kane retreats to the back as Taker goes after him while Paul Bearer is still down on the floor. Paul Bearer is back up and goes to the back and that's the last we see tonight of Taker, Kane and Paul Bearer. In the ring Eddie delivers his Three Amigos Suplexes on Rey and was poised for the finishing Frog Splash but Edge runs in throws Eddie to the floor. Eddie is hurt. Mysterio yells at Edge and asks him what is he doing. Edge fires back and says, he would have beaten him and he wanted to stop it. He orders Rey to go after Eddie. Rey doesn’t listen and waits for Eddie to get back in.

Edge decides to tag himself in and goes after Eddie on the floor. Edge sends Eddie into the ring post and throws him back in and pummels him in the corner. A whip is reversed and Eddie sends Edge into the buckle and Edge falls down. Eddie is also down but he has no one to tag. Edge is back on his feet as he exchanges punches with Eddie. Edge delivers the edge-o-matic and gets a near fall. He makes the tag to Rey as Edge holds onto Eddie. He wants Rey to go to the ropes and nail Eddie. Rey goes to the ropes for a spinning heel kick, Eddie moves out the way and Mysterio accidently gets Edge in the face. Edge is down on the mat. Eddie rolls Rey up and Rey kicks out at two. Edge is back up on his feet by holding on the ropes and goes in his corner and he is furious. He knows Rey made a mistake there as that was an accident because last week Edge accidently speared Rey. Rey reverses a whip and sends Eddie hard into the buckle. As Eddie is now by himself, Rey doesn't want to capitalise on the momentum. Instead he waits for Eddie to get back up. Rey is being a sportsman here. Edge yells at Rey and asks him what the hell is he doing, he wants Rey not to give Eddie a chance. Rey goes for a whip and it’s reversed and Eddie gets a backdrop. Eddie goes for a crossbody but Rey moves out the way and Eddie hurts his knee. Rey doesn’t go for a cover and checks on Eddie. This pisses Edge off and yells at Rey that Eddie is playing tricks, He’s lying, cheating and stealing. Rey thinks Eddie is really hurt. Edge yells at Rey to tag him and Rey continues to check on Eddie. He yells again and tags himself in and assaults Eddie. Rey stops Edge and Edge shoves Rey down who falls out the ring through the middle ropes. Edge goes outside the ring and gets a chair. The ref tries to get the chair off Edge but Edge shoves the referee down the mat. The ref calls for the bell and disqualifies Edge.

Winners by Disqualification: Eddie Guerrero and The Undertaker



Edge has snapped. Edge picks up the chair and is about to nail Eddie with a chair but Rey takes chair off him. Edge gets in Rey’s face and Rey goes to check on Eddie again. Edge picks up the chair and nails Rey across the back with a chair. He yells at Rey and tells him that he’s had enough of him. Their friendship is over. Edge continues to assault Rey until Eddie saves Rey but Edge kicks Eddie on the bad knee and hits the spear on Eddie. Edge then hits the edgecution to Rey on the steel chair. Edge raises his arm in the air and gets booed heavily by the fans. Eddie and Rey layed motionless on the mat as the boos for Edge get even louder. Smackdown goes off the air with Edge standing tall over Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero.

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

Smackdown Review

Personally I loved Smackdown, every single second of it especially the opening of Smackdown starting with that Edge-Rey segment and personally I love that Edge is turning heel, he doesn't need Rey as a friend, he doesn't need Eddie as a friend, and he doesn't need the fans at all because I agree with Edge. The fans booing him when he is taking out his obstacles in order for him to be WWE Champion, if the fans cannot understand that, then they don't deserve to be in the same arena as Edge and Edge you don't need to respect the fans either. Rey is like a bug who won't go away and I have to admit that for their match at Judgment Day I cannot wait for that because I want to see Edge tear Rey apart. Who knows maybe he might just get his shot at the WWE Championship soon

RVD backstage segment talking about how Booker turned on him and how Booker would regret it with RVD beating him at Judgment Day, it's not going to happen

Johnny Nitro becoming the new #1 Contender for the Cruiserweight Championship just shows that he is on the rise here in the WWE, and I love the fact that JBL got involved in this 8-man Cruiserweight Texas Tornado Match by being on commentary and then JBL laying out the Cruiserweights just shows that they are not on par with JBL at all and he is superior to them all

Kane beating Rhyno, I love it, as it just shows the type of monster Kane truly is, and he is the one with all the momentum right now going into Judgment Day

JBL backstage segment with him challenging 4 cruiserweights, challenging the World at Judgment Day just shows how he is going to dominate this match. JBL deserves way much better competition than this

The Undertaker-Eddie segment I loved it a whole lot especially with Paul Bearer there, and Kane showing up on the screen, loved it

Booker T is right, every partner who he has ever been partners with, he has gone on to become more successful, and he will prove it by becoming WWE Champion as soon as he beats RVD and I believe him when he says that he will

Cena & RVD beating Booker T and Val Venis was the right move as it shows that they both have momentum coming into the PPV into their respective matches

The vignette with that strange man, I don't know who he is, but I am really intrigued by who it could be, maybe a mystery man getting involved with this Taker-Kane feud, I don't know, but I always welcome new superstars

Backstage with all the cruiserweights and them putting their differences aside to beat JBL, I cannot see it happening, they will all implode allowing JBL to win

Hurricane beating Kidman, alright match, wasn't that bad but what I love is the fact that Dawn Marie is going to manage both Kidman and London, basically sets them up to become a heel tag team with Hurricane & Moore becoming faces with Torrie

Edge turning heel at the end of the night, I am definitely feeling it especially the part with him snapping on Rey hitting him with the chair and hitting Eddie with the chair just solidifies Edge as a heel at this point. Only bigger and better things for Edge now, and Taker accidentally hitting Paul, I can only smell something bad is going to happen like maybe Paul Bearer turning heel some time soon

Overall great Smackdown and I cannot wait until RAW!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

Smackdown Review

Very good opening segment. I liked the build for the Mysterio/Edge match. It was well written and very believable in the context of the characters. I'm also looking forward to the Booker T./RVD match. "Judgment Day" is unfolding nicely and this entire show really helped pique my interest in your PPV. There was a lot of action in your cruiserweight #1 contender's match. A little erratic in places but overall you handled it pretty good. Not a big fan of Nitro winning the match, but I'm hoping you'll make a believer out of me come "Judgment". Kane/Rhyno felt a little too short, even for a television match. It was decent enough but it seemed like it would have been easy to flesh the match out a bit. The JBL segment immediately following was awesome however. I like where you're going with Layfield.

The Taker/Eddie/Kane segment played out beautifully. I love the little bits of dialogue you gave Undertaker. I can hear those words coming from him and it sets up the three way match perfectly. The Booker T. dialogue was average at best, but the tag match that followed was well scripted. I was never a big fan of Cena but pairing him with RVD for this match simply worked. I can't stress enough that I love how you build your pay-per-views. You understand how to develop rivalries and keep them going strong until the PPV event hits and that's always an integral part of creating readable stories involving the WWE.

Chavo Guerrero's bit with the other International cruiserweights was a bit on the perfunctory side, but that's to be expected. You want a hot and heavy heel JBL going into the PPV so you don't really need to build up the faces that much. It works better with JBL grabbing the lion's share of the pre-PPV goodies, so to speak. The Kidman/Hurricane match was good, but it lacked that big time feel of a match used to set-up the main event (i.e. warm up the crowd for the meat of your show). I understand the reasoning behind not wanting two tag team matches ending off "Smackdown", but really I think the Cena/RVD vs. Booker/Venis wouldn't have overwhelmed the main event. Probably would have given "Smackdown" a bit bitter flow on this occasion.

I'm interested to see how you use Dawn Marie with the Kidman/London tandem. The Edge/Rey backstage segment helped psyche me up for their tag team main event and the match itself was everything you could want out of a 2004 episode of "Smackdown". Edge turning on Rey had an almost premeditated feel to it, but that didn't hurt the main event in the slightest. Rather, playing into those expectations seemed to have the reverse effect and made me enjoy the match more. If this had been an actual episode of "Smackdown", I would certainly have watched it when it aired. I'll definitely be following to see where you take things from here.

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

You're welcome for the review, Kintaro. I've been meaning to write one in regards to your work for quite awhile now. Finally got around to it. Really looking forward to your review of my work as well. You have an interesting perspective on things and I'll be glad to read your critique of my style.

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

WWE Raw
May 3, 2004

Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler welcome us to the show. Chris Jericho’s music hits as he makes his way down to the ring. Jericho is handed a mic. Jericho tells all his Jerichoholics that he’s in a bad mood tonight. Last week, that creepy little bastard Christian stole his way to victory and tonight he has a title shot. Now that pisses him off. So Jericho issues a challenge to Christian to a match next week. This brings out Christian who makes his way down to ringside and grabs a mic. Christian tells Jericho that tonight is going to be the biggest night of his career. He’s waited for this opportunity for a long time. He was telling his peeps that the days of Chris Jericho, HHH and Shawn Michaels getting title shots is over and now it’s his time. He certainly took advantage of it last week, he proved that it’s his time and tonight he’s going to become champion. He’s going to go out there and celebrate with his peeps. As for Jericho’s challenge it’s not going to happen next week. He doesn't need to prove anything to Jericho anymore because he's better than Jericho. As he’s going to win the title tonight, next week he has better plans. He reminds Jericho a month ago, Jericho interrupted his live sex celebration with Trish. This time he’s gonna have his celebration with Trish again and what makes it even better is that he’s going to be champion. He got the girl at WrestleMania, he beat Jericho last week to get the title shot and now he’s gonna get the title. Christian starts laughing. Eric Bischoff comes down to ringside and now that Bischoff is here, Christian decides to get in the ring with Bischoff. Bischoff happens to agree with Christian. After what Jericho did the last time Christian was having sex with Trish, it’s about time Christian gets to do this again next week. He’s pretty confident that Christian’s gonna win the belt tonight so Bischoff refuses Jericho’s request for a match with Christian. However since Jericho is in action later on why wait till later when we can do this right now. He forces Jericho to compete against A-Train right now and A-Train makes his way down to the ring and the bell rings as Bischoff and Christian leave.



Match 1
Chris Jericho vs A-Train

Jericho is pissed off because Bischoff just turned down his request. Lawler points out that A-Train made his Raw return by being traded from Smackdown. On his return he defeated Jericho in a gauntlet match but that’s when Jericho got past 3 guys and A-Train was added to the match That time Jericho was not at full strength but tonight he has a chance to get his revenge on A-Train. Jericho tries to take his frustrations out on A-Train but A-Train controls early with some power moves. He starts pounding away at Jericho in the corner until Jericho comes back and takes the big man down. Jericho delivers an insiguri and gets a near fall. Jericho sends A-Train to the ropes and A-Train counters with a bicycle kick. He goes for a cover and Jericho kicks out at two. A-Train then gets a back breaker and gets a headlock on Jericho. Jericho fights out of it but runs into a back elbow by A-Train. A-Train lifts Jericho up and delivers a military press slam. He is manhandling Jericho. He goes for another bicycle kick but Jericho moves out the way and clotheslines A-Train to the floor. A-Train gets back in on the ring apron and Jericho knocks him back down to the floor with a springboard dropkick. Jericho goes right after A-Train and delivers a walls of Jericho to A-Train on the floor. The ref starts counting and Jericho lets go at 6. He rolls A-Train back in which could be a big mistake from Jericho. He could have won the match by count out but it seems like he wants to dish out punishment on the big man. Jericho takes down A-Train with a one-handed bulldog and goes for a lionsault but A-Train gets his knees up. A-Train delivers some right hands to Jericho in the corner. A-Train then delivers his sit down powerbomb and Jericho manages to kick out at 2. A-Train gets frustrated and whips Jericho hard to the buckle. He charges into him and nails him with a clothesline. A-Train sets up for the derailer, Jericho slips out and delivers the CODE BREAKER. Jericho scores the 3 count win over A-Train to win the match. Following the match Jericho decides to put the walls of Jericho on A-Train. A-Train is tapping out and the ref orders Jericho to let go and he does.
Winner: Chris Jericho


Backstage Teddy Long is standing by with Todd Grisham. Teddy was not pleased with what happened to him last week. He thinks Jazz is nothing without him and it will be a long time till she will ever wear the womens title again. He's now moving on and It’s about time he gets the respect he deserves on Raw.

Elsewhere Eric Bischoff is in the back and he’s on the phone to PAUL HEYMAN. Heyman told Eric that Vince McMahon just called him up and he’s going to come out here on Raw tonight to make a major announcement concerning both General Managers. He has no interest in Raw but he has been ordered to appear via satellite tonight when Vince makes his announcement. Eric told Heyman that he also has no interest in watching Smackdown, he’s too busy making Raw the number one show. Eric hangs up on Heyman and then seemed concerned, wondering why Vince is here and what the announcement is.


Eugene Training Session Week 2

This is the second week of Eugene’s training. The Rock first teaches Eugene a few catchphrases. Later on Eugene will be competing against Coach in the exhibition match. Now Regal informs Eugene that it was very frustrating for him last week to teach Eugene however Eugene did learn a lot. Now before Eugene has his exhibition match later on, Regal wants to teach him a few more technical and submission holds. He demonstrates a german suplex on Eugene. However Regal does not want Eugene to repeat this on him, he wants Eugene to do this on Coach. Regal then demonstrates some painful submission holds. Rock now wants Eugene to do the same to Regal. Regal wants Eugene to take it easy here and Eugene uses submission holds and he gets a bit too carried away and Regal screams in pain. The Rock then instructs Eugene to do risk taking moves. So again Regal has to be the dummy. Eugene does an axe handle, elbow drop from the top. dropkick, crossbody from the top. Rock tells Regal that’s it for him. Regal can now take a break. Eugene is now ready for the exhibition match. Regal will be the announcer and Rock will be the referee.



In the back Eric Bischoff just watched Eugene’s training session on the monitor. La Resistance storm into Eric’s office. Rene decides to be the first man to challenge Eugene in Eugene's first official WWE match next week. Eric agrees to it. Sylvan and Conway complain about last week as they deserved the belts but due to poor officiating they were disqualified. They want Eric to fix this mess right now. Eric lets them know he’s going to come up with a fair solution right now.

Match 2
Fatal 4 Way Match for the tag team titles
The World’s Greatest Tag Team (c) vs The Dudleys vs La Resistance vs Chuck Palumbo & Johnny the Bull Stamboli

Eric comes out on the stage and states that last week he announced an 8 man tag match but now he’s making a change because he can. This match will now not be an 8 man tag, it will be a sudden death fatal 4 way tag team title match. The first team to score a pinfall or submission will win the the tag titles. The champions do not have to be pinned. The other 3 teams seemed to love this announcement but the tag team champions did not like this announcement. Sylvan Grenier and Rob Conway are representing La Resistance tonight. The bell rings. Bubba starts off against Chuck. Bubba gets a right hand on Chuck, he sends Chuck to the ropes and gets a shoulderblock. Chuck fires back with a right hand and hits a hard clothesline. He tags in Stamboli who runs in and clothesline Bubba. Stamboli delivers a powerslam and Haas gets in for the save. Stamboli doesn’t like that so he ends up tagging Haas. Bubba decides to tag in Rob Conway. So now Haas goes at it with Conway. Haas gets an armdrag and follows up with a back body drop. Haas misses a charge and Conway starts stomping away at Haas. He sends Haas to the ropes and catches him with a knee lift. He tags in Sylvan. La Resistance start double teaming on Haas and Shelton decides to step in but the ref orders Shelton and Conway to go back to their corners. The action continues and now Stamboli and D-Von are in the ring. Stamboli gets a military press slam on D-Von for a near fall. D-Von comes back and tags in Bubba and D-Von hits the wazzup headbutt. Now Sylvan and Chuck are in and go at it. We get several near falls and plenty of breaking up of the fall in this. Each team hit their finisher but it leads to another team stopping the other from getting the fall. Haas is now in and scores a great german suplex on Chuck and goes for a cover but Bubba breaks it up. Shelton is then tagged in. The legal men are Shelton and Chuck and all hell breaks loose in the ring with all teams brawling. The Dudleys and La Resistance end up brawling outside. Shelton goes for a dive and takes out all four of team. This leaves Haas on his own against Chuck and Stamboli. Chuck and Stamboli hit a double powerbomb on Haas but he’s not the legal man. Shelton pulls out Stamboli as Shelton gets back in as Haas nails Chuck with a right hand and Shelton connects with an exploder suplex and goes for the cover and gets a 3 count. The Dudleys tried to make it in on time but couldn’t break it up on time. The World’s Greatest Tag Team retain the titles.
Winners: Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin


Eric Bischoff is in his office and he’s sitting there quietly in his room wondering what sort of announcement Vince will make tonight. Eric is worried thinking his job may be in jeapordy. Trish knocks on the door and this brings a smile on Eric’s face. Trish explains that last week Eric did not allow her and A-Train to be at ringside and they listened to Eric. This week she wants to be by her man’s side as he aims to become the champ. Eric grants Trish her request and decides to make the main event a no disqualification match. Trish smiles and says now that’s more like it.



In the back Todd Grisham is standing by Batista. Over the past 2 weeks Batista has been on a roll, beating the likes of The Rock and Chris Benoit. Up next he’s stepping in the ring with HBK. Batista reminds Todd that 5 months ago at Armageddon, he was defeated by HBK. Now tonight it’s time to get payback. 2 months ago Chris Benoit beat him and then last week he got the win back. So now it’s time for Batista to hurt another guy who’s becoming an obstacle in HHH’s path.


Match 3
Shawn Michaels vs Batista



Batista comes out first with Flair in his corner. HBK is out next and the match gets underway. Michaels looks around at Naitch and Flair yells whooo. They lock up and Batista shoves Michaels down. Batista starts flexing his muscles. They lock up again and Batista gets Michaels into a corner and goes for a right hand but Michaels ducks and gets a few right hands on Batista. They lock up again and Batista kicks Michaels to the gut. He knees Michaels in the abdomen and whips Michaels to the ropes and takes him down with a hard clothesline. He backs Michaels into the corner and delivers some knee lifts into the gut. Batista whips Michaels to the ropes, HBK gets a baseball slide and clotheslines Batista to the floor. Batista gets frustrated and Flair starts giving Batista encouraging words. Batista back in receives some knife edge chops from HBK. HBK attempts to whip Batista to the corner but he can’t seem to move him and Batista sends Michaels to the corner. He goes for a charge and runs into a boot. Michaels goes to the ropes and delivers a flying forearm and Batista kicks out at 2. Batista reverses a whip and drops Michaels hard with a spinebuster and Michaels kicks out at two. Batista delivers a suplex and gets a near fall. Batista drops some knees right to the lower back of HBK’s. Batista misses a charge and HBK goes to the top and delivers a standing moonsault and gets a two. Michaels gets an atomic drop and superkicks Batista who goes flying over the top rope. Batista is out cold and Flair gets Batista up and rolls him in at 8. The action continues as Batista and Michaels go back and forth.

Batista is again in control and Michaels comes back with a flying forearm. HBK kips up and runs to the ropes but Batista catches him and gets a bearhug. HBK is in real pain and manages to fight out of it. Michaels knocks Batista down with a clothesline and applies a figure four. Flair does not like this. Flair manages to pull Batista’s arm on the ropes while the referee didn’t see this. Batista is back in control and distracts the ref. Flair trips Michaels up. Michaels goes after Flair and Batista gets outside and delivers a lethal clothesline on Michaels. He rams Michaels back into the ring post and rolls him back in. Batista hits a sidewalk slam and gets a near fall. Michaels ducks a clothesline and gets a back suplex on Batista. He goes to the top and delivers an elbow drop and gets a near fall. Michaels tunes up for the band and goes for the superkick, Batista blocks and turns HBK around and lifts him up for the Batista Bomb. Batista has him up but decides to powerbomb Michaels to the floor. Unbelievable. The ref makes the count as HBK is lying motionless on the floor. HBK is unable to answer the count and Batista wins by count out. Batista poses in the ring as HBK gets helped to the back by officials.
Winner by Count Out: Batista


Backstage TWGTT are celebrating their win. Haas tells Shelton they did not expect to be defending their belts tonight but they did and they beat the top teams on Raw tonight. Shelton says now this proves they are the world’s greatest tag team and there’s more to come from them.

Mr McMahon is shown arriving in his limousine




Vince McMahon’s segment with Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman

VINCE MCMAHON’s music hits as Vince comes down to the ring doing his power walk. Vince gets a mic and has a major announcement to make. He calls out Eric Bischoff to the ring. He looks at the screen as he also wants to talk to Paul Heyman live via satellite. First of all he starts praising the General Managers. Eric Bischoff hired his nephew Eugene, who is a mentally challenged guy. This shows that the WWE is all about equal opportunities. He lets Eric know that thanks to Eric he’s now going to be nominated for a humanitarian award this year because Eric hired a mentally challenged guy to become a wrestler. Eric has a big smile on his face. Eric said is that what you’ve come out to say Mr McMahon? Vince tells Eric to wipe that smile off his face because he’s not done yet. Vince then brings up a few points about Paul Heyman. After being threatened and assaulted by members of his own roster, Paul still had the guts to stay on. He decided not to walk out and didn’t quit. He liked this sort of ruthless aggression from Paul. Therefore Eric and Paul’s jobs are safe. A sigh of relief for both GMS.However Vince tells them recently they’ve also been throwing their weight around and abusing their power a bit too much. For example Eric showing a lot of favouritism to certain stars. Paul’s treatment of The Big Show and many more. So Vince had an idea and wanted to see how Eric and Paul could cope on a different show. Paul asks what does Vince mean? Vince announced that next week for the first time ever on Raw, Paul Heyman takes charge of RAW. Eric Bischoff was livid. Eric butts in and says “Mr McMahon you can’t do that, the fans love me being here.” Fans booo loud. “Come on Vince you hired me here for Raw and i’ve done a great job here. I’ve been a General Manager longer than Paul. Don’t let him run Raw next week. He will ruin Raw. He doesn’t know how to run Smackdown, he can’t even control his own stars, he’s going to turn Raw into Smackdown. I don’t want him to turn Raw into a second rate show.” Paul fires back and said Smackdown is the number 1 show, it has the better stars also also has cruiserweights which Eric once had in WCW. Vince told them both to shut up.


He told Eric it’s not permanent, it’s one off but if Paul’s going to be running Raw next week, then Eric gets to run Smackdown next week, the final show before Smackdown’s Judgment Day ppv. Heyman then starts complaining because he’s really put together a solid ppv and doesn’t want Bischoff to ruin the last show heading into Judgment Day. He pleads with Vince to change his mind, he’s changed Smackdown around completely and made it better than his daughter Stephanie. Vince was the one who hired him and he aims to make Smackdown the number 1 show in the WWE. Vince told both men to calm down. If Paul doesn’t run Raw next week and Eric doesn’t run Smackdown next week then the following week they’re going to hear the same thing he’s told a lot of other people in the past. "YOU’RE FIRED!!!"Vince drops the mic and leaves. Eric and Paul look concerned and Vince starts raising his arms in the air on the ramp as he leaves to a great ovation. You don’t cross the boss and now next week Paul Heyman for one night only has to take charge of Raw and Bischoff takes charge of Smackdown.

Backstage HHH applauds Batista for his win over HBK. HHH said he was in a bad mood all week because now again he has to wait to his rematch. He was going to make a statement tonight but now he's not going to do that and waste his energy. Now that Vince made his major announcement, now the game will get his title shot and he's going to make sure it happens next week. With Paul Heyman in charge next week, HHH is going to get what he wants why... because he’s that damn good.

Match 4
Intercontinental Title Match
Randy Orton (c) vs Garrison Cade

Garrison Cade makes his way down. Orton’s music hits as he make his way down. He is back in action after a two week rest off in ring action. For the past two weeks he had confrontations with The Rock and the hall of famer Harley Race. Orton gets a mic and tells Cade that last week Ric Flair taught Cade a lesson and tonight Cade has a big opportunity to win the IC Title. Orton gives his reasons why Cade doesn’t deserve a shot. 1)He’s done nothing relevant so far in the WWE to get a title shot. 2)A few months ago, he stole the bounty with his tag team partner off him, he tried to outsmart him but at the end the money was back in Evolution’s hands. 3)He’s not in Randy Orton’s league. However as Cade wants to make an impact on Raw, he’s decided to be generous and he’s putting his IC Title on the line. He told Cade to look at greatness because he will never be as good as Randy Orton. The bell rings and Cade immediately takes it to Orton. Cade delivers a right hand to Orton and then gets a back body drop and Orton kicks out at two. Cade misses a charge and Orton backdrops him over to the floor. Orton then takes control of the match. Cade fights back and hits a bulldog for a near fall. He goes up to the top rope and misses an elbow drop. Orton then hits the RKO to win the match. Orton makes quick work of Cade. Orton celebrates and poses in the ring.


Winner: Randy Orton


Eric Bischoff meets Vince backstage. Eric pleads with Vince to change his mind. Over on Smackdown there are lunatics like The Undertaker, Kane and Edge and many more. Vince said this is final and if Eric has a problem with it and doesn’t take charge of Smackdown next week then he can easily replace him just like that. Vince tries to encourage Bischoff and decided to go ahead with it. He hoped that all the Raw superstars give Heyman a hard time. Heyman couldn’t control his Smackdown stars but Eric Bischoff knew how to control his Raw stars. Now lets see if Heyman can control his Raw stars. On Smackdown he’s going to do what Heyman couldn’t do on Smackdown and he’s going to do a much better job than him. Vince said he didn’t care what sort of matches Bischoff makes next week, as long as he takes charge and manages to do a good job on Smackdown. Eric said Heyman stole one of his old WCW concepts which he used for his Smackdown show. Now Eric states that he is going to use his very own Raw concept for Smackdown when he takes charge. Vince wanted to know what Eric is talking about? Eric asked Vince what’s the name of the concept in which you have to spin the wheel and whatever it lands on, that’s the match you compete in? Vince says it’s Raw Roulette. Eric says that’s right Mr McMahon next week for the first time ever on Smackdown we will see THE SMACKDOWN ROULETTE. Vince approved this idea and wished Eric the best of luck.

Eugene vs Coach Training Exhibition Match

The Coach shows up and The Rock starts mocking Coach. Rock warns Coach that this is an exhibition match and Coach is supposed to be the dummy. Coach is like what the hell he wasn’t told that. Rock says he was just messing around with the Coach. Coach starts smiling and thinks he can easily beat Eugene. They lock up and Eugene goes crazy on Coach, pulling out all sorts of wild moves. Eugene starts biting Coach. He delivers a headbutt. Coach gets a thumb to the eyes and slams Eugene. He starts showing off and gets some offense. Eugene comes back and acts like the Ultimate Warrior by shaking the ropes. He knocks Coach down with a clothesline. He goes to the top and delivers a double axe handle. He gets a claw hold and Coach gets to the ropes. Eugene gives Coach an aeroplane spin, followed by a stunner. He goes for a pin but Rock counts slow and Regal is like what the hell is Rock doing. Rock says no-no-no.... Not just yet. This isn’t going to end like this, he asks Eugene remember he taught him the Rock Bottom and Peoples Elbow. So Eugene hits Coach with the Rock Bottom and then the peoples elbow. Eugene made the cover, Rock made the count, 1..2...3 and it’s over. Eugene has won his exhibition match. Rock then talks on the mic mocking the Coach. He tells him this is a message to Coach's boss Eric Bischoff. This is now the 2nd week of Rock's suspension. When he comes back on Raw in 3 weeks he's going to lay the Smackdown on Bischoff, Coach and Evolution's monkey asses. If Ya Smellllllllllll what the Rock is cooking. Regal believes Eugene is now 100 % ready.



Backstage Chris Benoit is standing by with Todd Grisham. Benoit first talks about Christian and he promises to make him tap. Now Benoit turns his attention to next week’s Raw show which will have Paul Heyman in charge. Benoit remembers his time on Smackdown and how Heyman treated him. Heyman believed Benoit would never make it to the top but now he is on top. When he won the Royal Rumble, he knew Heyman would make his life miserable and this is why he seized the opportunity to go to Raw. Then he went on to achieve his dream by winning the title at WrestleMania. He is really looking forward to seeing Heyman next week, now it’s his chance to rub it in his face. If Heyman decides to stack the odds against him next week then he will prove him wrong again.

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX

RAW Review

I loved RAW as I enjoyed watching every second of it especially the opening with Christian, Jericho, and Bischoff with Christian saying how he is going to become World Champion and that there is nothing that Jericho can do about it and that he was going to have a live sex celebration after he wins the title, and Jericho wanting another match against Christian but not getting it

Chris Jericho vs A-Train, awesome opening match with Jericho winning but A-Train had the win there, but fast-paced match-up

Eugene training session I didn't really care for it but it at least builds up Eugene to be a great singles wrestler being trained by both Regal and the Rock

La Resistance coming into Bischoff's office and Rene challenging Eugene to his first official match, I love that idea

Teddy Long backstage segment I loved that, Jazz is nothing without him, and he will prove that when he moves on to bigger and better things

WGTT retaining their titles in a Fatal 4-Way Tag Team Match for the World Tag Team Championship was a very good match, my high of the night if anything. They had the odds stacked against them and they still walk out champs

Trish & Bischoff segment backstage with Trish trying to be there at ringside for when her man Christian is facing Benoit for the World Heavyweight Championship, and then Bischoff instantly agrees to make it a NO-DQ match, I loved that segment, another high of the night for me

Batista destroying HBK with that sick Batista Bomb sending HBK on the outside, that injury looks pretty serious with HBK having to be sent to the back being helped out by officials. I just hope HBK is not put out of action because of this because he had that back injury that kept him out for 4 years, and Batista knew that and he injures HBK. But nonetheless it was a great match, and it only builds Batista up to be a main eventer here on RAW, so I am all for it

Vince's announcement with the GMs switching shows, I love it, it will be an interesting concept to see Bischoff run Smackdown and for Heyman to run RAW, I am all for it, great segment, my best high of the night by far

HHH backstage segment with him congratulating Batista, and then saying how with Heyman running RAW he will easily be able to get his title shot now because he is The Game and he is that damn good, I love it, and HHH putting over his protege I love it

Orton beating Cade to retain his IC Title, I love it, Cade put up a good fight but Orton winning with relative ease just shows me that Orton is on the rise here, and that Cade is nowhere near his level at all. Only bigger and better things for Orton.

Eugene winning his exhibition match against The Coach only puts Eugene over as a singles star, I love it, and I cannot wait until Rock's return either

Benoit retaining his title in a hard-fought match-up against Christian, I loved it, especially the fact where Jericho got involved to even up the odds for Benoit and Trish trying to help Christian only to be caught in the Walls of Jericho, I love it, Christian taps in the Crossface and Trish tapping to the Walls of Jericho, I loved it. Benoit is still the World Heavyweight Champion, and the fact that he gets to confront Heyman next week will make it even better. No live sex celebration for Christian, junior!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Overall great RAW show and I cannot wait until your Smackdown episode!!!!!!!!!!!!
