Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX
i like how this is looking! the time period is a good time to do a btb. I liked how you put mini backstories/recaps for each main person/team/group for this. I also like how you made a mini montage for the roster. The rumble card looks great but i think you may be pushing cena to early. good luck with this and il be following
Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX
This will begin after WrestleMania 20. I was going to start from the Rumble but i decided to start after WM20. I won’t be doing full shows as I don’t have the time to write full shows. Would have been good if i did full shows with full promos/match writing but i just don’t have the time to write all that out. However i will try to get all the important info in my reviews. I hope that every show will entertain you. I won’t be writing up on Heat & Velocity but you may see some Heat/Velocity matches being mentioned on Raw or Smackdown. If there are some guys who I don't use on the main shows(lower midcarders) lets assume they wrestle on Heat and Velocity. I may end up using them on the main shows if I need them for a battle royal. The King of the Ring PPV will return in June and it will feature both brands. The draft will take place in July after the Vengeance ppv. I will just explain the changes that were made to the WM card.
Matt Hardy moved to Raw in November and Smackdown did not get a replacement. So Hurricane moves to Smackdown and competes in the cruiserweight division and also tags with his former partner Shannon Moore. When Benoit moved to Raw, they did not replace Benoit on Smackdown. First Hardy then Benoit, so Kane replaces Benoit on Smackdown and Kane can start his feud with Taker. Johnny Nitro makes his debut on the Smackdown brand, not on Raw.
The tag team title match at WrestleMania is a 2 falls 4 way match. 1st fall is for the Raw tag belts, the 2nd fall for the Smackdown belts. If a Raw team win the Smackdown belts they go to Smackdown. If a Smackdown team win the Raw belts they go to Raw. Haas and Benjamin won the 1st fall and won the tag belts and this means they are on Raw. Booker T was upset at losing the belts but the match continued as the 2nd fall began. RVD hit a frogsplash on Scotty 2 Hotty to win the tag belts. RVD and Booker lose the Raw belts but win the Smackdown belts. Booker was happy to win the gold but now he is on Smackdown with RVD.
After Kurt Angle's match against Eddie Guerrero, Angle was furious and throws a tantrum in the ring. Angle berates the referee and Edge's music hit as he made his return to the WWE. Edge runs down to the ring and goes right after Kurt Angle. Edge hits the Edgecution on Angle. Edge is about to hit the spear on Angle and Angle escapes. Edge signaled that he is coming for Angle. Backstage Edge cuts a promo and he said it's great to be back. He wanted to be part of WM20 and Edge reveals that Kurt Angle was responsible for Edge being out of action for more than a year. Edge said that Kurt almost ended his career but he didn't get the job done because he is back now and he's coming for Kurt.
Bradshaw turned on his partner Farooq at No Way Out. Then on Smackdown Farooq challenged Bradshaw to a match and Bradshaw cheated to win. The following week Farooq defeated Bradshaw in a lumberjack match. A week later Bradshaw became JBL(cuts pretty much the same promo as he did when he actually became JBL) + he added that he is better than Farooq and now as JBL he will move on to bigger and better things. Farooq came out and challenged JBL to a match at WrestleMania. JBL agreed to it but on his terms. They will face each other in the deciding match(as they are 1-1) No Holds Barred match and the loser is out of the WWE. Mark Henry is injured, in real life he was not back till December 2005 so I am taking him off the roster. Also after WM, Brock Lesnar quit the WWE and Goldberg has left the WWE.

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX
I wasn't reading WWE at this time yet as I started in 2005, but this should be interesting for me to read because I pretty much know everyone in your thread but not what they were like at the time. Anyway, I suggest you reduce the size down one because it's going to help the formatting and make more people appreciate your thread, as well as using less bolding. I suggest writing in the size/font of your results that were quoted for Wrestlemania XX, except only using bold sparingly.
I'll be reading Raw when it's posted and hopefully the formatting's a bit more approachable.
Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX
Thanks guys. Finally got the Raw show up. I'm not going to write the show in full promo form, it will be more of a recap. I just don't have the time to write full shows. Hope you still enjoy the show.
March 15, 2004
Footage from last night shows Benoit winning the world title at WrestleMania. The announcers welcomed us to the show. Raw kicks off with the new World Heavyweight Champion Chris Benoit as he makes his way down to the ring. Chris Benoit said he had worked hard for this and finally he achieved his dream of headlining WrestleMania and becoming the world heavyweight champion. He did it by beating two of the best. Last night he made HHH tap. He truly had his WM moment last night. He knows everyone will be gunning for his world heavyweight title but he’s a fighting champion and he’s going to hold this title belt for a very long time. HBK’s music hits as he makes his way down to ringside. HBK congratulated Benoit on winning the belt last night and says Benoit deserved it. Shawn Michaels says that Chris Benoit hasn’t beaten him yet, he did not make him tap last night, he made HHH tap. So until Benoit doesn't make HBK tap, he's not the best. He's never beaten him. HBK beat him on Raw a couple of weeks ago. Michaels continued on by saying that Benoit may have won the belt last night but let him be the first to challenge Benoit for the world heavyweight title. HBK extended his hand and Benoit shook his hand and HHH made their way down to ringside.
HHH's music hits as he makes his way down to ringside. HHH grabbed the mic and said last night would have been the greatest night ever for Evolution but he was the only member of Evolution not to win and Benoit got lucky. HHH says he is the greatest champion ever and the greatest professional wrestler today. One match does not make you the best Benoit. HHH said he's been heavyweight champion on several occasions, he's retired a legend, he's competed in some of the most barbaric matches ever. He's headlined more WrestleManias than Benoit has and right now he wants his rematch. If there is anyone who deserves a rematch then it’s him, he gets the first shot and he wants it right now.
Benoit raised his title belt for HHH to see. Benoit says when he won the Rumble he decided to move to Raw to challenge HHH because he wanted to prove that he can beat the best and he did so that makes him the best. Benoit says if HHH wants a rematch so bad he will make him tap again. Michaels cuts in and says the last time he had a match with Hunter it ended in a draw. Now the match before that HBK defeated HHH. A few weeks before WM he beat Benoit and at WM, HBK did not tap, HHH did. So HBK should be the one who should be getting the title shot. HHH and HBK start arguing. Bischoff comes out and says if HBK and HHH really want a title shot so bad then tonight they will go at it one on one. No DQ. The final chapter, HBK vs HHH. The winner gets Benoit at Backlash. As for Chris Benoit, if he is calling himself a fighting champion, then tonight he will defend his newly won world heavyweight title against the legendary Nature Boy Ric Flair. HHH jumps Michaels from behind and sets him up for the pedigree but Benoit saves Michaels and goes for the cross face on HHH. HHH escapes and bails out of the ring and has a big smile on his face.
Backstage Bischoff welcomed the World’s Greatest Tag Team on Raw. He was glad to have them on Raw and he believed that they will achieve better success on Raw than they did on Smackdown. Infact he doesn’t give a damn about RVD and Booker T winning the Smackdown titles to go to Smackdown. Shelton told Bischoff that tonight they will show Bischoff why they are the best tag team in wrestling today.
Tag Team Championship Title Match
The World’s Greatest Tag Team (c) vs Lance Storm and Val Venis
Shelton and Haas are making their Raw debuts. Val and Storm come out with two ladies. Shelton and Storm start the match off as Shelton takes Storm down with a double leg takedown. Storm fights back and works on Shelton’s arm and then whips Shelton into the corner and nails him with a spinning heel kick. Storm goes for a german suplex but Shelton counters and hits a german suplex of his own. Shelton tags in Haas. Haas gets a backdrop suplex for two. Storm comes back and makes the tag to Val. Val scores with a nice fisherman suplex but gets the count only. Shelton and Haas double team Val and they go for an overhead suplex which sets up the leapfrog choke for two. Val comes back and nails Haas with a right hand. Val plants Haas with a spine buster and gets a 2 count only. Val goes for a money shot and Haas moves out the way. Haas goes for the Haas of Pain and Storm breaks it up. Val finally makes the hot tag and Storm takes Haas down with an enziguri. Storm misses a charge and Haas tags Benjamin and WGTT hit a double team neckbreaker for a two count. WGTT then finish off Storm with a superkick-roll up combo to win the match.
After the match the ladies get inside the ring and slapped Val and walked out on him. Val was very disappointed.
Backstage Bischoff tells Austin that last night at WM was the last we will ever see of Bill Goldberg as his contract up and he is done with the WWE. Bischoff starts laughing and said he loved it when Austin stunned Goldberg to send him out. Austin told Bischoff to wipe that smile off his face or he’ll whoop his ass right now. Austin told Bischoff to get serious and informed Bischoff that outside interference will not be tolerated for the world title match tonight. Bischoff says that's fine and also tells Austin that the winner of HBK vs HHH will get the title shot at Backlash.
Matt Hardy vs Spike Dudley
At the start of the match Hardy grabbed a mic and complained that he deserved a match at WrestleMania. Matt asked Spike that since Shannon Moore is on Smackdown, would Spike like to become his new mattitude follower. Spike said No and Matt kicks Spike in the mid-section as the bell rings. This match was quick and lasted 2 minutes. Matt dominated the match. Spike came back and went for the Dudley Dog but Matt blocks and throws Spike down. Matt hit the twist of fate to pick up the victory.
Backstage Randy Orton says last night Evolution humiliated The Rock and Sock Connection on the grandest stage of them all. Orton says he can beat Mick Foley or The Rock anytime, anywhere and any place. Foley is such a coward that he needed The Rock by his side at WM. Orton says he wants Foley in a one on one match. He guaranteed that when he means one on one there will be no outside interference but if Foley is man enough to accept then he will be waiting.
Trish explains why she humiliated and embarrassed Jericho last night. She wants everyone to see that footage from last night. Footage from WM is shown when Trish betrays Jericho. Trish says that all that time Jericho was mad about her and she wasn't interested in him at all. Trish said she wanted a real man and that’s Christian. Christian knows how to treat a woman right and Jericho is not her type. He is not in Christian's league. Christian says before he talks about Jericho, he wants to make one thing clear, he had nothing to do with Edge being attacked last year. There were rumours going around that Christian is jealous of Edge and he’s the one behind it but Christian said it’s a load of crap and he’s not a CLB. He says he’s better than Edge, he had a great year in 2003 while Edge was out for over a year. Now Christian says he’s got the girl now and now it’s Christian’s time to shine in the WWE. He proved last night he is better than Jericho by beating him and also getting the girl. Suddenly Chris Jericho jumped over the guard rail and attacked Christian. The crowd cheered as Jericho tried to lock in the walls of Jericho and Trish jumps Jericho from behind. Jericho turns around and started smiling and turned his attention to Trish. Jericho grabbed Trish by the hair and threw her down and sets up the walls of Jericho only for Christian to low blow Jericho. Christian escapes with Trish as Jericho looked on.
Backstage La Resistance are celebrating being back together as Sylvan Grenier has returned after being out of action due to injury. Rene was complaining to Sheriff Austin about not being involved at WM. He said La Resistance deserved a tag title shot and now that Sylvan has returned they are stronger than ever. Austin asked them are they done because they are wasting his time. Rene told Austin he can not do that and they want Austin to give them the respect they deserve. Austin told them he was thinking about giving them a match tonight but he’s changed his mind. He told them to leave. La Resistance stormed out of Austin's office.
World Heavyweight Title Match
Chris Benoit (c) vs Ric Flair
Benoit and Flair lock up and exchange chops in the corner with Benoit getting the upper hand. Benoit takes Flair down with a german suplex and immediately goes for the crossface but Flair quickly slides under the ropes and escapes. Flair gets back in the ring and Benoit hits Flair with a series of right hands and knife edge chops. They slug it out in the corner and Flair knocks Benoit down with a stinging knife edge chop. Flair bodyslams Benoit and hits a kneedrop and gets a 2 count only. Flair goes to the top rope and Benoit gets back up and throws Flair down. Benoit goes to the top rope and goes for a swan dive and Flair moves out of the way. Flair then works away on Benoit’s knee. Flair picks Benoit up and connects with a suplex. Flair goes for the figure- four but Benoit counters to a small package and gets a 2 count only. Benoit tries his own figure-four but Flair quickly breaks it with the thumb to the eye. Flair finally locks the figure four and Benoit makes the ropes. Flair goes for a back suplex and Benoit slips out and hits the 5 rolling german suplexes on Flair. Benoit goes for a crossface and Flair tries to block but Benoit takes him down and makes Flair tap out to the crossface.
Backstage Todd Grisham interviews Jericho. Jericho tells Todd that next week he will call that slut Trish Stratus and that CLB Christian out on the Highlight Reel. Jericho says he may have lost the battle last night but he will win the war.
Backstage Val Venis and Lance Storm are upset that they lost. Women have had enough of him because they think he's a loser. Val hated losing to a young team tonight and Val wanted to get his career back on track. Val's had enough on Raw and he is going to fix this situation soon.
Victoria and Lita vs Jazz & Molly Holly
Molly attacks Victoria at the start of the match and hits a snap suplex. Molly tags in Jazz and Jazz powerslams Victoria. Jazz goes for backdrop and Victoria slips out and connects with a ddt for the 2 count. Victoria hits a powerbomb and Molly breaks it up. Victoria makes the tag to Lita who takes Jazz down with the headscissors. Lita goes for a charge and misses and Jazz hits a neckbreaker. Jazz goes for a half-crab which she turns it into the STF. Victoria breaks it up. Jazz tags in Molly and Lita takes Molly down with a clothesline. Lita gets a ddt on Molly and follows up with the moonsault to pick up the win.
Backstage Austin tells Bischoff that he’s invited Edge to come to Raw next week. Austin said he knows how it feels to be out of action for over a year and what it feels like to miss WM. He’s experienced it before. Austin said Edge will whoop Kurt Angle's ass on Smackdown. Bischoff said he can’t allow Austin to bring over Smackdown talent to his show.
Backstage The Rock arrives and Coach makes fun of The Rock for losing last night at WrestleMania. The Rock then starts running down The Coach and tells The Coach that he's not done yet with Evolution, this has just started. The Rock vows to whoop Evolution's ass.
No DQ #1 Contender's Match
HHH vs Shawn Michaels
Big staredown to start the match. HBK dominated the early going by hammering away at HHH. HBK whips HHH into the ropes and goes for an early superkick and HHH moves out the way and slides out of the ring. Back in the ring, HBK chops away at HHH, HHH reverses and chops away at Michaels. More brawling and the match was very back and forth with a lot of near falls. HHH goes for a backdrop which is reversed to a ddt by HBK. HHH kicks out at two. Michaels pulls HHH up to his feet and irish whips HHH off the ropes. Back in HBK charges at HHH as HHH pulls down the ropes, putting Shawn on the floor. HHH goes outside and grabs a chair and hits the chair across the back of HBK. HHH throws HBK back in and goes for a sleeper hold and Michaels comes makes it to the ropes.

Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX
k, let's start lol...
the opening segment with Benoit was pretty good and the best way to open the show
HBk vs. HHH no#1 contender match was predictably announced lol
and Benoit saving HBK shows he is a true sport, good job:D
Tag Team Championship was a good match, nice finish too. made to show world greatest tag team ever are fighting champs.
Hardy vs Spike was a complete squash bsaically to put Matt over
Orton's challenge to mick foley was also nice, but i'm hoping to see Orton vs. The Rock sometime.
Christian & Trish's promo was kinda like WWE, Jericho's attack was a huge failure that made Jericho look week lol.
Benoit/Flair was a good technical match and as expected Benoit won.
divas, i dont care for them lol
HBK vs. HHH was MOTN but why did Evolution come out after the ref was knocked out, they could have done it since the start of the match cuz the match is No-DQ lol. HBK wins by being dragged by The Rock, decent finish.
good show, looking forward to what u do with Smackdown
and pleeez dont give the title to JBL lol
Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX
Obvious choice to have Beniot open the show here. I understand what your saying with Shawn saying that Beniot isnít the best, because he hasnít beaten him yet, but I just donít see that happening, seeing as Beniot is the World Champion, that meaning heís the brands best. Triple H should have just got to use his rematch clause, he shouldnít have to go through a #1 Contenders Match, he should have just been able to use his rematch clause right then and there. At first, you mentioned Triple Hís rematch clause, but then itís like you forgot he had it and stuck him in the match with Shawn. Where did Ric Flair get thrown into the mix at? Flair hasnít been doing a thing except teaming with Evolution and now heís getting a World Title Match? Surely, there could have been somebody else. Nice attempted attack after the match, but why did HHH have a smile on his face after he bailed from the ring? Not a bad opening promo here, some stuff needed to change, but other than that it was ok.
Not much to comment on TWGTT, since it was basically just a promo to introduce them on Raw.
Obvious choice for TWGTT to get the win.. were Storm and Venis an actual team in real life? I canít remember.
I can see why you had this promo, but I donít think it was needed. There was some grammar issues throughout. Like, Austin said ďOutside interference will be tolerated in the World Heavyweight Championship Match.Ē I think you meant for it to be ďOutside interference will not be tolerated.Ē Just little things like that make a whole difference.
Interesting start to this match. Looks like your trying to get the whole Mattitude Follower thing back, which I would love to see :)
Orton making a challenge to Foley? Cool.
Nice promo here to advance Jericho/Christian feud, but there were some things done with the attack that I didnít like, like Jericho jumping over the barricade. Why would he be coming from the crowd? He wasnít banned from the arena that night, was he? And, also donít like that Trish got involved in the attack. Other than some things I didnít like with the attack, this was an overall good promo.
Good match here. It was apparent from the beginning that Beniot was going to get the win, but a DQ win for Flair and attack on Beniot would have been good.
Highlight Reel should be good next week.
Not much to comment on for the divas, lol.
I remember the No Way Out 2003 PPV, it was a pretty good one. Typical Austin/Bischoff promo here, but Iím interested that your bring Edge over to Raw next week.
Loved the Main Event. I didnít like all the run ins at the end of the match when the ref was out.. if maybe Batista and Orton came out, then Beniot came out to even it up, that would have been fine. But you had Batista, Orton, Flair, Beniot, Rock, and Foley. Thatís alot of people to interfere in a match when the ref was down. Too big of a fight at the end of it too, the match just should have been ruled a no contest if Orton/Foley and Rock/Flair were fighting at ringside. I can see why your giving HBK the title shot, but I would have rather see HHH get another title match, tbh.
Overall, it was a decent enough show. There was some booking decisions that I didnít agree with, but we will see how that plays out overtime. Also, you need to work on your grammar. Just proof reading your shows before you post them will help you out on that. Good luck :)
Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX
Nice opening segment with Benoit's emotional speech after winning the title and the somewhat rather predictable interruption from HBK. Overall a good segment with two great matches announced for tonight, already getting me excited for the rest of the show.
WGTT dominating the tag division is all good by me and so is Matt Hardy getting a push.
Another good segment with Christian/Jericho/Trish, I hope you keep this feud going because a lot of good matches could be produced with it.
Benoit defeating Flair is the obvious decision here but I was surprised not to see anyone from Evolution make an appearance, although I guess HHH is preparing for his match.
I'm fans of both Victoria and Lita so I'd be happy if either got a push towards the Women's title.
The main event is actually quite a great TV match and the action was written nicely throughout. I didn't see Rock n Sock interfering but it makes sense that they did. HBK winning is a good choice in my opinion and we already have a great main event for next week to continue the storyline.
Overall, good entertaining show, that perhaps could use more segments overall. I'll continue reading.
Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX
Thanks for the feedback guys, will act on it. I will give reviews to you all later on today.
The next show is Smackdown. Now the real life show on March 18 was pretty good as they had a lot of good matches on the show. However I am not going to throw great matches away on this week’s show. It’s the fallout from WM so this week will just introduce stars that have moved to Smackdown, and stars that have returned. As i am not going to do the draft this month i don’t need to throw away ppv quality matches right away on Smackdown. I can save them for ppvs. As it is the fallout from WM, from next week the shows will get interesting.
March 18, 2004
Lose some and Gain some
It is now time to see the fallout from WrestleMania on WWE SmackDown. The Smackdown brand took a major hit at WrestleMania when the Worlds Greatest Tag Team won the world tag team titles to move to Raw. If that wasn’t enough, Ron Simmons was defeated by his former partner Bradshaw in a loser leaves WWE match. The biggest shocker was Brock Lesnar quitting the WWE following WrestleMania. Paul Heyman believes that if they lost some then they certainly gained better.
At WrestleMania, Edge and The Undertaker finally made their long awaited returns and you will see them back on Smackdown tonight. What can we expect from The Undertaker tonight? What will Edge have to say after being out of action for over a year? Is Kurt Angle in huge trouble?
RVD and Booker T are the newest members of the Smackdown roster as they captured the tag titles at WrestleMania. Tonight they will defend the titles against the former champions 2 Cool.
WWE Champion Eddie Guerrero successfully retained the WWE Title against Kurt Angle at WrestleMania. Kurt Angle believes that he should have won the belt at WrestleMania and Eddie Guerrero shouldn't be champion. After the match Kurt was ambushed by the returning Edge. Kurt was responsible for putting Edge out of action for over a year. Tonight Kurt Angle will explain why he almost ended Edge's career. Also will Latino Heat give Angle a rematch?
Champion vs Champion
Also, for the first time after the WrestleMania extravaganza as we present all of the fallout from WrestleMania XX, the new United States Champion John Cena will meet the new Cruiserweight Champion Tajiri in action tonight in a non title match.
Last week the superstars of Smackdown let Stone Cold Steve Austin attack Paul Heyman. Has Paul Heyman lost control of Smackdown? Will Heyman show up tonight?
Find out all this week on Smackdown!
Tag Team Title Match: RVD and Booker T vs 2 Cool
Johnny Nitro vs Paul London
John Cena vs Tajiri
The Smackdown show should hopefully be up by tomorrow.
Re: WWE 2004: Road to WrestleMania XX
Nice preview. Wish you would have kept Lesnar. He's somebody I've always wanted to write with in a BTB, but never got the chance. Edge and Taker returning will be good. Hopefully, you don't let Guerrero give Angle a rematch, and from what it sounds like you said at the opening of this post about not wanting PPV quality matches on this Smackdown, it's not gonna happen. I'll be reading Smackdown :)
