WWE 2003
Background: I had a few of the Be the Booker threads a couple months back, but school interfered and I kind of let go. However, I am off of school and manage my time a lot better now, so how about I do something fun in my spare time! The matches will, for the most part, not be long, written matches. However, they'll be decent sized reviews with good info that keeps you compelled and hopefully interested! I am using EWR to follow my shows, but I will not be following the game completely because that game limits the player so much. NO ROSTER SPLIT!!

Sunday Night HEAT
Date: 6/3/03
Location: Dallas, Texas
Venue: American Airlines Center
Attendance: 17,459/21,000

Sunday Night HEAT kicks off with Theodore Long, the general manager of Sunday Night Heat, making his way out to the ring with some cheers from the Dallas crowd. Theodore Long introduces himself as the general manager of Sunday Night HEAT and adds his signature ‘playa’ into his introduction. He thanks the WWE Universe of supporting him through all these years and, although he has been demoted to what he calls the WWE’s C show, he will prove to the Mr. McMahon and the rest of the board that Teddy Long is the best general manager in the company. Long proceeds to get June started with fire, so he announces Goldberg vs Kurt Angle for later tonight. Teddy Long heads to the back, as the announcing duo of The Coach and Al Snow welcome the television audience to HEAT before our first match.


Match #1
Non-Title Tag Team Match
A.P.A. (Bradshaw & Farooq) vs Basham Brothers (Doug & Danny Basham)

A.P.A. makes their way to the ring, hoping for a win that will propel them up the tag team ranks. The Basham Brothers come down the ramp holding their WWE Tag Team Titles tight around their waist. They walk into the ring and there’s a huge height advantage for A.P.A. here. The bell rings and Bradshaw and Danny Basham begin the tilt. Bradshaw uses his size and power to bring down Danny constantly. Danny tags in Doug, who has no luck against Bradshaw. Doug begins to take out Bradshaw’s legs, allowing the Basham’s to get in some offense. Bradshaw and Doug take each other out and make a simultaneous tag to their partner. Farooq and Danny go at it with one another, but Farooq comes out on top and tags in Bradshaw. They continue to go for Bradshaw’s legs, but one kick to Bradshaw’s legs was missed and Bradshaw whips Danny to the ropes and attempts the clothesline from hell. Danny ducks under it and goes for the roll up pin. Danny grabs the tights, but Farooq comes in and breaks up the pin. Doug comes running in from the corner to go after Farooq, but Farooq tosses Doug over the top rope to the outside. Danny drop kicks Farooq to the outside. Danny gets up after the drop kick and turns right into a clothesline from hell from Bradshaw. Bradshaw pins him for the three count and the W!

Winner: A.P.A.

A.P.A. celebrates in the ring and Basham’s get their titles and get out. Basham’s know they are in trouble and A.P.A. hopes they just got themselves into the driver’s seat. HEAT goes to commercial with A.P.A. celebrating.


HEAT comes back on air backstage where Josh Matthews introduces himself and says he is interviewing none other than Y2J Chris Jericho. Jericho interrupts Matthews mid-sentence and states that he has done everything to earn respect in this company, but he does not get that respect. He talks about how he was the Undisputed Champion, but yet we still have about as many titles in the WWE as Dawn Marie has sexual partners in a week. Jericho attributes this to all the egos the company has. He asks Josh if Josh believes Jericho is the best. Josh mutters something that is hard to pick up and Jericho says that proves his point. Jericho claims he is sick of the cocky, arrogant superstars who think they are the best when in reality, Chris Jericho is the best. He makes his point know that there is only room for one superstar who claims he is the best, so he is going head hunting against those who think they are the best. He says he will begin with Randy Orton. Jericho walks away, as HEAT goes back to ringside.


Match #2
Singles Match
Matt Hardy vs Rey Mysterio

Rey Mysterio makes his way to the ring with a huge pop. Mysterio waits in the ring while his opponent, Matt Hardy, makes his way out. The two have a fast moving, high flying affair. At one point, Hardy went for the Twist of Fate, but Mysterio got out of it and threw Hardy to the outside of the ring. Mysterio ran toward Hardy and jumped through the ropes, diving at Hardy on the outside. Hardy ended up going for the Twist of Fate one more time, but Mysterio countered Hardy and threw him into the second rope. Mysterio quickly capitalized with the 619, followed by a flying headbutt onto Hardy. Mysterio went for the pin and got the three count for the victory.

Winner: Rey Mysterio

Mysterio celebrates and Hardy is left heading back to the locker room wondering ‘What If,’ as HEAT goes to commercial.


HEAT comes back with Evolution in their locker room. Triple H walks out of the locker room laughing, leaving Randy Orton, Batista, and Ric Flair. These three men laugh about Chris Jericho’s interview earlier. Batista continues to ensure Orton that there is no way that Jericho will get close to you with Flair, Hunter, and himself around. Orton says that he knows that and is only worried about Jericho after he learns that he is not the best in the world.


Match #3
Singles Match
Kane vs John Cena

John Cena makes his way to the ring with the crowd on his back, as he awaits his match with the Big Red Machine. Cena gets interactive with the crowd in the ring, but Kane’s music hits and the fire comes. Kane makes his way down to the ring with his anger being held beneath his mask. Kane and Cena go at. Cena attempts to drive his shoulder repeatedly into the back of Kane’s knee to get the big man off his feet. Cena tries to will himself to beat the monster. Cena gets two flying shoulders into Kane, knocking him down. Kane gets up and misses a clothesline. Cena tries to grab Kane from behind, but Kane tosses Cena into the ropes and Cena comes back at Kane and gets a big boot. Kane goes up to the top rope, waiting for Cena to get up. Cena stumbles up and Kane goes for the flying clothesline, but Cena ducks under it. Kane manages to land on his feet and turns around into an FU. Cena pins Kane for the three count.

Winner: John Cena

Cena celebrates as HEAT goes to commercial.



Match #4
Singles Match
Goldberg vs Kurt Angle

HEAT comes back on air for the main event. Kurt Angle makes his way to the ring and the crowd chants ‘You Suck’ to correlate with his music. Angle’s music shuts off and Goldberg is shown exiting his locker room and making his way out. Goldberg comes through the smoke and into the ring. Goldberg and Angle lock up in the ring for a match which will give somebody serious bragging rights. Goldberg and Angle put on a clinic together. Goldberg tries to put Angle away with a sidewalk slam, but only gets a two count. Goldberg goes for a fireman’s carry slam on Angle and hits it, but only gets a two count. Goldberg is getting frustrated that he cannot put away Angle.

Goldberg goes to pick up Angle, but Angle reverses into an Ankle Lock in the center of the ring. Goldberg is trapped and cannot find the rope. Goldberg uses his strength to reverse the Ankle Lock into an Ankle Lock of his own. The tables have turned on Angle and Angle tries to get out of it. Angle rolls himself out of the Ankle Lock and goes after Goldberg. He hits multiple belly to back suplex’s on Goldberg and with the last suplex Angle goes for a pin, but only gets two. Angle gets Goldberg down again with another variation of suplex’s. Angle looks at the top rope and climbs it. Angle goes for a moonsault, which Goldberg rolls away as Angle crashes to the mat. Goldberg gets up in the corner and awaits the fallen Angle to get up. Angle gets up and Goldberg charges at him…SPEAR! Goldberg goes for the pin and gets the three.

Winner: Goldberg

Goldberg celebrates in the ring, as the crowd cheers. Goldberg smiles, as he makes the motion around his waist indicting that he wants the title. What title does Goldberg want? HEAT goes off the air with Goldberg celebrating his win.

Re: WWE 2003
Good start. I think those matches were too good for Heat though. Goldberg vs. Kurt Angle is a PPV Match.

Also, what's the point of having a World Heavyweight and WWE Title if there's no brand split. Same goes for United States/Intercontinental and Tag/World Tag titles..

Re: WWE 2003
RAW Preview via WWE.com


Dallas, Texas hosts the first RAW in the month of June. The summer time temperatures in the south will definitely raise tensions backstage and in the ring. Two weeks before Badd Blood, the World Heavyweight Title and WWE Title picture does not appear clear. However, Goldberg appears to be eying either Brock Lesnar's WWE Title or Triple H's World Heavyweight Title. Will we get a clue on Goldberg's intentions or will we he continue to leave us hanging?

Chris Jericho is out on a mission to take down those who claim they are the best. Jericho believes he is the best and wants to prove to everyone that everyone else is fake and Y2J is real. It appears his first target is the Intercontinental Champion, Randy Orton. However, to get to Orton, Jericho will have to get through one of the most successful groups in the WWE. Evolution.

Announced Matches:

Booker T vs John Cena

Tune in tonight 9/8pm central to Spike TV for WWE RAW. Check local listings.
@AwSmash Basically the roster just got off of the brand split, so there is an influx of titles everywhere. Jericho referenced it in his promo on HEAT. The issue will be cleared up in the future. And what's wrong with making HEAT a serious show? :)

Re: WWE 2003

Monday Night RAW
Date: 6/4/03
Location: Dallas, Texas
Venue: American Airlines Center
Attendance: 20,542/21,000

RAW kicks off with the usual pyro, while JR and King introduce us to Monday Night RAW. They tell discuss that John Cena will face Booker T tonight. Also, they talk about Goldberg’s statement win on HEAT by beating Kurt Angle. Evolution’s music hits and the crowd boo the stable of Triple H, Randy Orton, Ric Flair, and Batista. The four make their way to the ring in suits and ties. Triple H has his World Heavyweight Title on his shoulder, as he addresses the crowd. Triple H talks about how Evolution is one of the most dominant groups in history and the proof is that they hold the Tag Team Titles, Intercontinental Title, and the most prestigious title in wrestling. Triple H feels they ended the brand split because Evolution was running out of competition. Evolution dominated RAW and now they need some new competition. However, the end of the brand split will not end Evolution’s domination.

Triple H says that when Summerslam, Survivor Series, Royal Rumble, and even Wrestlemania come up, Evolution will still have these titles on their shoulders. Triple H walks over to Randy Orton and puts his arm around Orton. Triple H talks about Chris Jericho and how Jericho wants to challenge Orton because he wants to prove Orton is not the best. Jericho, also, wants to prove again that he is the best in the world. Triple H says that it was awkward listening to that interview because Evolution has the titles to prove they are the best and Jericho has, well, nothing. He gives Jericho permission to go after Orton, but has to remember that when he messes with Orton, he is messing with all of Evolution.

HBK’s music hits and the crowd pops. HBK makes his way to the ring and Triple H does not look too thrilled. HBK grabs a microphone and he says he is proud to be back in his home state of Texas. He is excited to be in his hometown this Thursday on Smackdown! but wants to start the party tonight. Shawn says he wants a chance at Triple H’s title. They have been through so much together, so Shawn tells him the opportunity is the least Triple H can do. Triple H says Shawn has tried, and he has not succeeded. Triple H says he is standing on the top of the world and Shawn is back to being a mediocre, washed up superstar yet again. Triple H says he feels bad they have been lifelong friends and they both went in separate directions. Triple H politely asks Shawn to turn around, go backstage, and never interrupt Evolution again.

Kurt Angle’s music hits and Angle makes his way to the ring. Angle slides into the ring with a microphone and his gold medals around his neck. Angle looks at HBK and then turns his attention to Triple H. Angle asks Hunter if he thinks he is truly the best. Triple H turns around to Flair and they both smile and nod. Angle grabs his gold medals and points them at Triple H. Angle asks if Triple H has ever won a gold medal. Triple H raises his World Heavyweight Title into the air. Angle asks if he did it with a broken freakin’ neck. Triple H smiles and tells Angle that he didn’t really expect Angle to come to the ring, but expected a more competent, tough superstar to come down by the name of Goldberg. Angle looks pissed.

The Rock’s music hits and the Great One makes his way down with another huge pop. The Rock stands outside the ring and introduces himself: “Finally, the Rock has come back…to Dallas!” Rock admits that Angle and Michaels have great cases to face Triple H for his title. However, the Rock is not named the Great One because he is second best. The Rock says he came back to the WWE to beat jabronis like Triple H and send them back to reality. Rock is cut of mid-sentence by the music of Eric Bischoff. Eric Bischoff makes his way to the stage and is smiling ear to ear. Bischoff says he is going to make his short and sweet. He understands Rock, Angle, and HBK have legitimate reasons to face Triple H for his title, but I have a plan for Triple H, which will be revolutionary for RAW and will prove to everyone that I, Eric Bischoff, have the best mind in wrestling. Bischoff apologizes to the competitors and turns around to head back.

However, the boss Vince McMahon’s music hits and Bischoff looks shocked. Vince McMahon comes out intent on something. McMahon stops Bischoff and asks him to join the party on the stage. Mr. McMahon says he did not plan on coming out tonight, but sitting backstage in his office watching this go on, he thought of a huge business opportunity written on it. Not to mention, he feels the fans would benefit from all of this. McMahon asks the crowd who deserves a title shot; Angle, Rock, or HBK. They all get equal responses. Mr. McMahon says he does not care what plan Bischoff had with Triple H because tonight he will choose ten superstars which will face off in a battle royal for the opportunity to face Triple H at Badd Blood for the World Heavyweight Title. Vince smiles at Bischoff and walks off as RAW goes to commercial.


RAW comes back on air and Chris Benoit is walking around backstage. Benoit walks past the United States Champion, Big Show. Benoit mumbles ‘what a disgrace.’ Show hears this and runs up at Benoit. The two go face to face and yell at one another. Agents, officials, and referees come and separate the two, as we go ringside with JR and King. They talk about how the Basham’s lost yesterday on HEAT to A.P.A. and Bischoff was not happy. Bischoff set up a match tonight where told the Basham’s he expects more and he motivates them to win by putting their tag team titles on the line. Bischoff thinks they should win this and has high hopes in the brothers.

The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray & D’Von Dudley) vs Basham Brothers (Doug & Danny Basham)

They seem motivated and look to make a statement. The referee holds the WWE Tag Team Titles up and the match begins. Bubba and Danny Basham start it off. Danny tries to play the speed game on the bigger Bubba. Bubba finds a way to slow Danny down and brings him down with a DDT. Bubba tags in D’Von and D’Von goes after Danny slowly, but Danny takes advantage of D’Von being slow and takes him down. Doug is tagged in and they hit a double DDT before Danny goes back on the apron. Danny tries to pin D’Von with no success. Both teams go back and forth until the tide turns when Doug knocks Bubba off the apron. D’Von whips Doug into the Basham’s corner. D’Von works Doug in the corner and Danny tries to hit D’Von. D’Von clotheslines Danny off the apron. Doug clubs D’Von with some rights and D’Von backs up. Bubba slides into the ring behind D’Von. Doug runs at D’Von and D’Von grabs Doug and, with Bubba waiting, hits a 3D! Referee gets Bubba out of the ring, while D’Von covers Doug. D’Von gets the three count.

Winner: NEW WWE Tag Team Champions; The Dudley Boyz

The Dudley Boyz celebrate and the referee hands them the WWE Tag Team Titles. The Dudley’s hug in the ring, while the camera goes backstage to the A.P.A. Bradshaw and Farooq are sitting at a table filled with poker cards, chips, and a few drinks. They look on to the television pissed off. Bradshaw screams at the TV, wondering how the Dudley’s got the title shot before they did. He asks Farooq and Farooq says nothing, but has a look of anger on his face. Bradshaw knocks all the contents off the table and storms out as RAW goes to commercial.



Match #2
Triple Threat Non-Title Divas Match
Trish Stratus vs Molly Holly vs Gail Kim

RAW comes back on air ready for a divas matchup. Gail Kim makes her way to the ring, followed by a huge pop for Trish Stratus. Molly Holly, the Women’s Champion, makes her way to the ring. Gail Kim and Molly Holly double team Trish to begin the match. Trish is backed into the corner. Molly Holly throws Trish over the top rope to the outside.

Trish kicks out at two and Molly is shocked. The three divas go at it. Trish bicycle kicks Gail and sets up Molly for the Stratusfaction. Trish attempts to springboard off the top rope, but Molly throws her off and Trish crashes to the outside. Molly taunts the fallen Stratus, while Gail takes advantage and rolls up Molly. Gail grabs the tights and the referee doesn’t see. Gail gets the three count and the victory.

Winner: Gail Kim

Gail celebrates her victory, as Trish lies on the outside in pain and Molly cannot believe she lost to Gail Kim. Gail celebrates like she won the title in the ring. However, we go backstage where A.P.A. and the new WWE Tag Team Champion Dudley Boyz are in Eric Bischoff’s office. Bischoff is on the phone, while Dudley’s and A.P.A. argue. Bubba says he doesn’t want any tension between us and A.P.A. and he understands they’re pissed they didn’t get a title shot first. However, Bubba tells them that WWE is an unfair place. Bradshaw tells him to shut it and yells at Bischoff to get off the phone.

Bischoff hangs up the phone, walks over, and explains to him how it has not been a good night because he had another plan for this tag situation, but he was just on a conference call with Vince and the Smackdown! GM, Stephanie McMahon. They had a plan, but I put my little twist on it and they liked it so here we go. Bradshaw demands a title shot and Bischoff tells him to calm down because he has this figured out. On Smackdown!, A.P.A. will face the Dudley’s in a non-title match. If A.P.A. wins, they will get a title shot next Monday night against the Dudley’s and the Basham’s. If A.P.A. loses, Basham’s get their rematch against the Dudley’s next Monday. The two teams think about it. Bradshaw looks over at Bubba and laughs. Bradshaw tells Bubba that the A.P.A. are going to make a statement Thursday and that is a fact. The A.P.A. walk out and RAW goes to commercial.


RAW comes back on air with Ric Flair and Randy Orton warming up backstage. JR informs us that Mr. McMahon just told those two that they will be a part of the battle royal tonight to determine the number one contender for the World Title and face Triple H at Badd Blood.

Re: WWE 2003
I've never commented on a Be The Booker thread, but it's always been bugging me.

What do people get out of doing these? What's the point?

Are you under 15 years old?

Were you ridiculously addicted to GM Mode in the old Smackdown Vs Raw games?

Do you have a life away from your laptop?

These aren't snide comments. I'm just genuinely wondering.

You say you're off school. Should you not be looking for work and maybe try to earn money, thus having a life away from your laptop.

Re: WWE 2003
Rather than doing a 4 paragraph rant, I'd rather just say this statement. "Everyone has a hobby, you never know about the user beyond the screen and you have no power to tell someone how to live, let alone advise."

Although this is my Review for the latest show.

I've seen this heat feud between Show and Benoit and I think this shouldn't fade in...lets say...4 weeks like WWE usually does. They argued, Big Show assaulted Benoit and I wonder what Chris Benoit will do next.

The intro was outstanding. I liked how there is 3 main guys after Triple H's title. You can carve a feud out of that. The Eric Bischoff part, which was minor, still played a part in the promo. Even though you don't use Play-By-Play I see where you are going and I think that was throughput.

It is very rare that title's change on live television and I expected the Basham Brothers to win...even if they lost on HEAT. I hope you are going somewhere with this. "If A.P.A. wins, they will get a title shot next Monday night against the Dudley’s and the Basham’s. If A.P.A. loses, Basham’s get their rematch against the Dudley’s next Monday." I am looking forward to this.

I didn't follow the Divas match but judging by my skimming and the content it probably was solid.

The day where a legitimate match between Booker T and John Cena is written so brief and even less than the Divas match means that, that match alone should have been longer than the Divas match. I didn't like that match at all.

Solid match between Holly and Lesnar.

The battle royal was nicely put in terms of creativity, length and content. That shows potential in you.

The feuds are easily distinguished, most of the matches were written with quantity and quality evenly balanced and the organization was average. Maybe bold the eliminations, the title or italicizing the segments would have made it a 'tad better.

Raw Overall Score: 89/100

Well, you don't really get much out of it beside using your mind creatively. I am not 15 or under. I just completed my first year of college, play on a college baseball team, currently umpire and make very good money doing so, and have a very active social life. I never played Smackdown vs RAW, I have always been a big NHL or NBA video game player. And life away from the laptop? I told you I do. I like to stay up late at night because I can't sleep early so instead of watching the same ole' shit on the TV (Sportscenter gets real repetitive when you watch it for the third time in a night) I can use my brain and have some fun here making stuff using my own ideas. Getting people's feedback is awesome, whether its negative or positive. If you obsess yourself with Be the Booker, then you have a problem. However, if you do it for fun and whenever you have free time, knock yourself out. That is what I am doing. I know you are just curious and not being a dick, but now you know!

Re: WWE 2003

Thursday Night Smackdown!
Date: 6/7/03
Location: San Antonio, Texas
Venue: AT&T Center
Attendance: 18,722/19,000

Smackdown! kicks off with Tazz and Michael Cole at ringside. They discuss the Rock winning a shot at Triple H’s World Title at Badd Blood. Also, they mention Shawn Michaels dedication to get that title shot, but Shawn came up just short and was devastated. Also, they talk about how Lesnar and Heyman have plotted to get back at Goldberg, but how? Goldberg’s music blasts and Goldberg makes his way through the smoke on the stage. Goldberg comes out with a crowd that is solely behind him. Goldberg stands in the middle of the ring, while he takes his time and pauses to listen to the crowd chant his name. Goldberg speaks and he threw down the challenge on RAW to Brock Lesnar and let him know that he is next. Goldberg says he is sick of Lesnar being called the ‘Next Big Thing.’ Goldberg discusses his historic run in WCW and how wrestlers got the hell out of his way. He mentions how the superstars backstage look at Lesnar and back away, just like they did to Goldberg when he was in WCW. He mentions that not all the wrestlers look at Goldberg the way that they look at Lesnar, and that infuriates Goldberg. They think Goldberg is past his prime. Goldberg wants to prove to Lesnar that his prime has not passed and Lesnar will have to take a backseat to the real beast of the WWE, Goldberg. Goldberg promises that the WWE Title will soon be around his waist and when he is done, superstars will look at Goldberg with that same, scared look. Goldberg demands Lesnar to come out.

Goldberg waits for Lesnar, but Shawn Michaels music hits. Michaels walks out without doing his poise on the ramp and the pyro goes off without Michaels. Michaels walks down with causal clothing and a depressed look upon his face. Michaels gets in the ring and grabs a microphone. Goldberg speaks up before Michaels and expresses his unhappiness about HBK’s interruption. Michaels nods his head and he says he understands, but says he needed to get something off his back and then get the hell out of here. A ‘HBK’ chant begins and Michaels thanks his home crowd, but he says not even the hometown crowd could cheer him up tonight. Michaels talks about how he came out on RAW and demanded a title shot from Triple H. It turned into chaos, as guy after guy came out and demanded a challenge as well. All he wanted was a match against Triple H, but it turned into a battle royal. He mentions his career needs a jump start and he needed to win his battle royal for the sake of his career. He had the battle royal won and set himself up against the Rock for a victory. He says he simply didn’t execute and Rock took advantage and won. HBK congrats the Rock, but says the Rock did not need that win as bad as he needed it.

Goldberg knocks down HBK’s microphone and Goldberg stares him down. Goldberg asks if Shawn’s speech is going anywhere or if he is just throwing himself a pity party? He tells Shawn to grow a pair and do something about it. Goldberg tells Shawn that he is the number one contender for the WWE Title and nothing is going to get in the way of him kicking Lesnar’s ass. Shawn picks up his microphone and tells Goldberg that he has no intention of getting between him and his title shot. Goldberg asks if Shawn is telling the truth because it just seems that Shawn has come out here to try and get himself into another title picture because he was kicked out of another one. Goldberg tells Shawn that he has no problem making him next if he is going to get himself involved in this.

Shawn is about to talk, when Paul Heyman appears on the screen. The crowd boos Heyman and Heyman gets Goldberg’s and Michaels’s attention. Heyman condemns Goldberg’s assault on Lesnar on RAW. Heyman says that his client will make Goldberg pay eventually, but Heyman mentions he has bigger fish to fry. He mentions that the GM Stephanie McMahon has a meeting at headquarters, so she will not be here tonight. Heyman mentions that his WWE contract has an administration clause in it, so he technically considered an admin of the WWE and tonight he will be making sure Smackdown! is a fully running and operational show. He says that Stephanie has left a rough outline on how she wants the show to run, but Heyman wants to keep all his superstars happy. Seeing HBK upset and down is a sight Heyman does not want to see. Heyman announces that tonight’s main event will pit Goldberg and Shawn Michaels in the same ring. The winner of the match will become the new #1 contender for the WWE Title. Heyman wishes both men good luck and leaves. Goldberg is furious and storms off to the back, as Smackdown! goes to commercial.


Smackdown! is back on air with Chris Benoit and Josh Matthews. Matthews begins by asking Benoit how is doing after Big Show’s attack on RAW last week. Benoit flexes his shoulders and says he is fine, but ready to avenge what Big Show did to him on RAW. Benoit says that Big Show is gutless and simply afraid that I am real competition for his title. Benoit promises revenge against the Big Show and leaves.
