Re: World Wrestling Entertainment - Reviving A Legacy

Hey Callum, Man City fan right?. Really looking forward to the show here, I liked JDawg's RAW so lets see how you do with the blue brand.

Well an odd start with Matt Hardy, I thought for sure Cena/Edge would open but I'm down with this. I like Hardy and his new theme song, the promo was okay got the point across of Hardy wanting the title. And here's Cena, really glad he's back on Smackdown after seeing him on RAW for so long. Edge is out and he wants his rematch and Vickie looks like shes giving him it...Oh not Teddy! But to be fair the Triple Threat match should be good later tonight. Looks like the fans are soon cheering Edge here for his treatment of Vickie.

Nice tag team match here, I always liked Carlito and Primo so I hope they get a long run with the titles. The Brian Kendrick! Awesome, love it. Koslov I felt could have went further as the monster heel so it looks as though he might get a steady push. Think there's more than what meets the eye with Edge and Vickie breaking up.

I think it was obvious after the double pin happened that it would be a triple threat next week and it should be a good match. Now Gail Kim gets a title shot, shes a great worker so she could work a decent match with Maryse. Colons have something in store hmmmmm.

Main event time! Thinking Edge gets the win here I just hope it's not Show! And he does, happy about that and Jeff returns for a piece of Matt. Cena and Edge should be a classic!

Overall a good show mate, I think you've started off strong and you've built some promise going forward. The show might have been a bit short but you didn't write the matches in full detail that is only a small gripe by the way. Looking forward to the next show.

Re: World Wrestling Entertainment - Reviving A Legacy

Smackdown Feedback

Surprised to see Hardy kick off the show as I expected Cena what with his big trade and all that. What Matt had to say though was pretty much on the money, can totally imagine him bringing up everybody loving Jeff while he’s in the background. Cena answering his challenge, glad you made a big deal of him returning to Friday nights and his character was pretty good also. Edge next out, certainly a lively opening and again, you had Edge captured well, was pleased to see you mention the whole girlfriend thing with Lita lol. Number one contenders match later was a nice announcement though I’m not sure why Show was thrown in to be honest.

Wow, very interesting exchange here between Edge and Vickie, face turn for the Rated R Superstar incoming perhaps?

Nice way to start off the in ring action, a tag title belt is always good use on TV and it’s a strong win for the Colons while also giving Ryder and Hawkins a chance to shine, good job. Aftermath was nicely executed also, TBK and Big Zeke would be a solid addition to the tag ranks and I’d love to see a feud between them and the Colons.

Haha Kozlov and the Double Double E. Served its purpose here, squash win and statement of intent, would be interested to see how you push him that’s for sure.

Cena I felt was a little off here compared to earlier. Particularly when he said Hardy needs a beating, sounded like a father to his child lol. Standard running down the competitors but a little short and a little flat for me here.

Hmmmm, that Edge face turn is looking more and more likely or tweenerish anyway. Arguing with Show, more trouble with Vickie, I like this approach with him. As for Show and Vickie? Ughhh but understandable lol.

I’m sure this would’ve been a fun match here and the ending was certainly different. A unique approach and I’m sure we’ll see some fallout to this. I would’ve preferred Christian in this spot but that’s personal preference.

Nice announcement for next week, guess that cleared things up pretty quickly. Should be a good match between all the ‘brothers’ as Truth liked to point out.

Big win for Gail here, glad to see you utilising her better than the WWE themselves did. Match with Maryse will be interesting, as hot as Maryse is there’s no doubt Gail would be a better champ.

A little pointless I felt from Maryse here, didn’t really serve much of a purpose.

I liked this on the other hand, enjoyed the fact you showed that Carly and Primo were hurting but were already looking to next week, makes things heated between the teams already.

Main event seemed a solid one and I’m glad we finally saw something from Jeff Hardy, after what happened earlier I was surprised there was no sign of him up til now. Glad to see that the Hardyz will keep feuding while Cena/Edge although it had been done to death by this point will be something exciting I’m sure, especially with Edge’s new attitude.

On the whole a very solid first show. The main event scene looks good and somewhat fresh with Cena and the Hardyz along with a new side to Edge. Midcard developed pretty well too here so I’m very much looking forward to next week and I’m sure the rust will continue to wear off. Good job.

Re: Calum Presents: WWE 2009 - The Fear That's In Your Eyes

WWE Monday Night RAW - 13 April, 2009

RAW begins this week as per usual with a video package – it highlights what went down last week on the greatest show on Monday Nights. It begins with Randy Orton coming out at the top of the show, stating his goal to win the WWE Championship and telling everybody that WrestleMania was a one off. However, Vince McMahon showed up and told Randy that he would not be getting a Championship match, he would have to earn it, and he then booked Orton in a match against the Jamaican Superstar, Kofi Kingston. The match began and in a shock result, Kofi defeated The Viper to a huge reaction from the crowd in attendance. The night wasn’t over for Randy Orton however, as his Legacy brethren Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase demanded a match against Triple H, Mr. McMahon obliged and booked Cody Rhodes in a match with The Game. Rhodes had a good showing against The King of Kings but in the end Triple H defeated the young upstart. This wasn’t the end of the show however, as Randy Orton and Ted DiBiase descended from the stage and attacked The Game. The night ended with The Legacy standing tall over the fallen WWE Championship.

The RAW opening video now plays and we shoot straight into the Target Center where the crowd are cheering loudly, excited to be part of Monday Night RAW. The stage is illuminated by a massive pyrotechnic display which almost destroys the ear drums of the crowd nearest to the stage. Once the cameras get their fill, we cut to the announce table where the always entertaining Michael Cole is sat, alongside Jerry The King Lawler. The two commentators run down the card for tonight including CM Punk versus Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler versus Triple H. They then begin hype up the announcement of the new General Manger and we don’t have to wait long as Vincent Kennedy McMahon makes an appearance

The crowd respond with a nice cheer for the man who created Monday Night RAW, Vince McMahon walks onto the stage smiling from ear to ear, wearing a lovely grey suit with a pink tie. McMahon walks down to the ring, the way he only knows how and eventually climbs up the steps before stepping into the ring. The Chairman of the WWE waits for the cheers to die down before speaking into the microphone which he has picked up from the steel steps. McMahon welcomes everybody to Monday Night RAW and informs everybody of the great matches that we have tonight, before telling everybody that after intense deliberation he has finally came up with a General Manager worthy of managing the biggest wresting show in the world. He hypes him up as one of the greatest Superstars in WWE history and how he has management experience. Eventually after keeping the fans in suspense for long enough, Vince smiles before pointing to the stage and announcing the new RAW General Manager. The music of the legendary Ric Flair plays over the PA system and the crowd go ape shit, loving the appointment of Ric Flair as the new RAW General Manager. Flair struts out in a very expensive black suit and a pair of very shiny shoes. Wooing his way to the ring, Ric makes his way down the ramp and climbs up the steps before entering the ring. Ric and Vince shake hands before Vince leaves the ring to Ric and walks up the ramp, smiling at the reaction to his appointment of Flair as the RAW General Manager. The sixteen time World Champion is stood in the middle of the ring he calls home, grinning like he’s just won a championship, taking in the cheers from the crowd. Ric begins his promo with a huge woo which elicits the same from the crowd, he then goes on to say that he is honoured with the position of RAW General Manager, and that he will do his best to keep the action rolling here on Monday nights.

Suddenly... “Voices” hits the PA system and The Viper, Randy Orton walks out from behind the curtain. He takes his time walking down to the ring, while Flair stares at his onetime protégé. Orton with a Legacy T-shirt on, and an intense expression on his mug, walks up the steps before entering the ring and being handed a microphone from ringside. Orton congratulates his former mentor on being given the RAW General Manager position and tells him that he is glad that someone has been given the job who will be a competent GM. Orton tells Ric that he should give him a shot at the WWE Championship. Ric tells Orton that just because the two of them go back to Evolution days, he won’t be playing favourites. But because of Orton’s actions last week, and since Kofi Kingston defeated him in a match, there will be a number one contenders match to see who will face Triple H at Backlash. Ric informs Orton that he will face off against the man who defeated him last week, Kofi Kingston! Orton’s a bit upset that he isn’t handed the championship opportunity, but accepts the match and tells Ric that after he is done with Kofi Kingston he is gunning for the WWE Championship. Ric nods his head when suddenly “Game” blasts over the PA system and Triple H walks out from the back. The Game isn’t in the mood for games tonight instead he makes a beeline for Orton with the commentators reminding us what Legacy did to Trips last week. Orton gets ready and jumps on The King of Kings as he slides into the ring but Trips gets back to his feet and takes Orton down to the mat and begins clubbing him with right hand after right hand. Orton tries to cover up but it’s no good, meanwhile Ric Flair just stands watching what is going on. He shrugs his shoulders at the crowd while Trips and Orton still continue brawling. Eventually, Orton manages to slither out of the ring and backs up the ramp with Trips welcoming him back in to the ring. The commentators put over the brawl that we just saw and the match made for later tonight and also the new General Manager as we head to the commercial break.


Monday Night RAW returns just as the music of Mike Knox is simmering down, then “Booyaka 619” plays over the PA system and the crowd cheers the arrival of Rey Mysterio. The Intercontinental Champion walks to either side of the stage and sets of his pyrotechnics before walking down the ramp, taking a few seconds to interact with the fans. A replay of his interaction with William Regal plays and the commentators begin speaking about the possible match between the two. Mysterio is now in the ring and hands his championship to the referee before throwing his t-shirt into the crowd. After which, the referee calls for the bell and the two men circle the ring. Rey uses his speed in the early going to inflict damage on Knox, including hitting the spinning head scissors take down which Knox sells surpringly well for a big guy. But Knox eventually uses his size and strength to take Mysterio out and take away his high flying offense. Knox keeps him grounded with a surprising amount of submission holds which we didn’t know he could use, including an arm bar and a leg lock. After a few minutes Mysterio begins to get back into the match, the crowd cheer him on as he spins out of a Samoan Drop attempt and DDT’s Knox! Knox gets to his feet and runs at the smaller man but Rey trips him in to the rope and hits him with the 619 for the victory! The crowd cheers as the referee hands him his WWE Intercontinental Championship.

Rey holds the belt above his head before reacting to the boos from the crowd, William Regal has appeared on the stage, no theme song. Regal is in a suit and tie, with two men beside him. One man with long hair and short blue tights on, the other with no hair whatsoever, and with black and silver short tights. Regal and his cohorts begin to walk down the ramp; the commentators begin questioning who these men are and what they want. The three of them reach the ring; Regal stays on the side nearest the stage while the other two walk around the ring. The trio climb onto the apron, Rey glancing each way, the commentators telling him to get out of the ring. Regal smirks at his cohorts before nodding, and the two men enter the ring. Rey doesn’t go down without a fight and launches himself at the long haired man, jumping on him and clubbing. But the numbers game catches up to him as the bald man attacks him from behind. The two men throw Rey around the ring, taking turns at getting on top of him and punching him repeatedly. The fans hate this and urge somebody to come and save Rey, but nobody comes to his aid as William Regal enters the ring He tells his cohorts to hold Rey up, Mysterio is on his knees and his arms are being extended. Regal picks up the Intercontinental Championship and shoves it in Rey’s face, telling him that he should saviour his time with the belt because it won’t be long before he takes it away. Regal finishes Rey off by bouncing off the rope and kneeing Mysterio in the temple, knocking him out and the three men leave the ring to huge boos from the crowd.

For their moment...

We fade to black with the last image being John Cena holding the World Heayweight Championship up

But the pageantry is over...

We suddenly hear a women’s blood curdling scream

Then the video returns with Randy Orton kissing Stephanie McMahon with Triple H watching on...

All that remains...

Shot of Jeff Hardy hitting the Swantom Bomb...

Jeff Hardy:
The Backlash...

Shot of Edge hitting a spear...

The Backlash...

Shot of Kane hitting a chokeslam...

Before we see a silhouette of a man in a dark room, only seeing his shadows...

All that remains... is the Backlash.



WWE Backlash | April, 26th, 2009 | TD BankNorth Arena | Boston, Massachusetts


We return to Monday Night RAW and are treated to a replay of the events which just transpired, after which the commentators put over the attack and question who the two men were. After a few moments of silence, “Break The Walls Down” comes over the speaker system which causes the crowd to boo loudly at Chris Jericho. The Best In The World walks slowly down the ramp, in a suave suit and tie, once he’s in the ring he is handed a microphone. Jericho begins his promo by speaking about his attack on Ric Flair last week and now he is the RAW General Manager, he says it is a conspiracy to hold him down. He says that he is the best Superstar on the show and he was wasted at WrestleMania, forced to compete against three hacks and then deal with Mickey Rourke. Jericho pauses for a bit as the fans begin chanting “Y2Cheap” which he doesn’t like, but alas – he continues on, he tells everyone that despite Flair being RAW General Manager, he won’t be held down and he will rise to the top. Jericho then changes the subject and begins speaking about The Miz’s actions last week, he says that he was impressed by what Miz done, he says that he enjoyed seeing someone like Miz break out and grab the bull by the horns. It’s something he done when he debuted, he went straight to the top guy, and made a statement just like Miz done last week. Jericho then says that he has took Miz under his wing, and says that he won’t let Miz be a victim of conspiracy and will help him reach his potential.

Jericho then tells everyone to turn their attention to the stage where “I Came To Play” blares over the speakers. The crowd responds with a good amount of heat, directed at The Miz who walks out to the ring wearing a suit and no fedora, obviously a more serious Miz that we are seeing, which the commentators keep going on about. The Miz enters the ring, and grabs a microphone, he rolls it around his hand before raising it to his mouth. The Chick Magnet begins by saying that it is true that Chris Jericho has took him under his wing, and that is a good thing because Chris Jericho is a former WWE Champion and a legend in the WWE. He says that he done what he did to John Morrison because he was sick of carrying his dead weight, he says that Morrison has no charisma and nothing which stands out, which Jericho nods. The Miz then says that he is awarding the World Tag Team Championship that he took from John Morrison last week to Chris Jericho. He says this partnership, despite Jericho being a mentor, is level – he says that he is just as important as Jericho in this tag team. He now doesn’t need to carry anybodies weight, which Jericho smiles at. It’s Jericho’s turn to speak and he says that he is honoured to hold the World Tag Team Championship, but his main business right now is RAW General Manager Ric Flair. He says that Flair was appointed to hold him down; he says it is a conspiracy to which The Miz agrees.

Chris then says that he will make a formal complaint to the board of directors about Flair’s appointment, but suddenly... “Also sprach Zarathustra” blares through the PA system for the second time tonight and the new General Manager, Ric Flair walks out to the ring in the same suit from before. Flair climbs up the steps and enters the ring, standing opposite The Miz and Chris Jericho. Ric speaks into the microphone and tells Jericho that the complaint he is going to make won’t mean a damn thing, and that he is RAW General Manager, and he will be for a very long time. Jericho says that he is making it his goal to rid Flair of the WWE and stop the conspiracy against him from taking effect. Flair retorts by telling Jericho that there is no conspiracy, he says that no one planned for Mickey Rourke to knock Jericho out at WrestleMania. Jericho doesn’t appreciate that as he attacks the RAW General Manager! Jericho is on top of Flair, pummelling him with punch after punch, he eventually stands up and The Miz takes over as Jericho takes his suit jacket off and throws it into the corner. Jericho and Miz continue to stomp on the RAW GM until... “Sexy Boy”... the fans lose their shit as Shawn Michaels darts out from behind the curtain, running down the ramp and sliding into the ring. The Heartbreak Kid takes Jericho down with a Spear and lands some good shots before The Miz jumps him from behind and takes him down. The man who retired Ric Flair is now being beat on by The Miz and the other half of the World Tag Team Champions. Jericho throws Michaels into the corner, which allows The Miz to hit a clothesline in the corner, whilst jumping and landing on a seated position on the second rope. When Michaels staggers out, he staggers straight into the Walls of Jericho! Michaels is in searing pain and RIc can’t do anything because The Miz is pummelling him in the corner until... “Ain’t No Make Believe” blares out and the fans cheer as John Morrison makes a beeline for the ring, and his former tag team partner. Morrison slides into the ring and spears The Miz, taking him down before going after Jericho, making him break the Walls. The numbers game catches up to Morrison until Michaels manages to get to his feet and pulls Jericho away from Morrison. It’s now a fair fight and Morrison and Michaels show their opponents the door as they manage to throw them over the top ropes. Flair joins Morrison and Michaels and the three stare at the World Tag Team Champions as they do the same.


When we return to the show, the commentators give us a rundown of what went down before the commercial break and then we see a replay of said events. After it concludes, we head backstage where Josh Matthews is waiting with a microphone in his clutches. He introduces his interviewee for the evening, the man involved in tonight’s main event, Kofi Kingston! The crowd responds with a good cheer as the camera pans out to see said Superstar standing beside Josh with a grin across his face. The two greet each other before Josh asks him how he felt defeating a huge Superstar like Randy Orton last week, to which Kofi replies by telling him that it was a huge moment in his career but he’s always known that he is able to mix it with the best. Kofi then goes on to say that he will continue to mix it with the best when he defeats Randy Orton tonight and goes onto Backlash to challenge for the WWE Championship, the fans respond with a nice cheer before Josh wraps the interview up and thanks Kofi for his time. Kingston slaps Matthews on the shoulder before walking out of the shot.

And it’s now time for the SmackDown rebound! The package begins with Matt Hardy walking out to a plethora of boos from the TD BankNorth Arena. Hardy says that he is the better and more talented Hardy and tells us that everybody only cared about Jeff. After a bit, he challenges John Cena to come out, and of course – Cena obliges. The fans go crazy as the new arrival on SmackDown returns to his home, once in the ring he says it is great to be back on Friday nights, but Hardy interrupts him which doesn’t stick well with the World Heavyweight Champion. Cena says that he’ll give him a shot because someone needs to give him a beating because of what he done to Jeff, the two go face to face until the former World Heavyweight Champion makes his presence felt. Edge says that nobody gets a shot before him so Cena says that he will take on both of them, but then Vickie Guerrero appears nad tells everyone that Edge will face John Cena for the World Heavyweight Championship at Backlash. But then, another interruption as the SmackDown General Manager, Theodore Long comes out and says that Edge will have to earn it, and thus he will take part in a triple threat match against Matt Hardy and The Big Show. Later in the show we see Edge arguing with Vickie Guerrero and The Big Show, telling the two of them that they can have each other, and thus ending their marriage. It’s main event time and we see Matt Hardy, Big Show and Edge going at it, and in the end because of Vickie throwing a steel chair into the ring, to help Big Show, but instead Edge grabs it and hits a DDT onto Big Show onto the steel chair. Edge pins Show and then Cena joins Edge in the ring, and the two go face to face as the show goes off the air.

Once the SmackDown rebound goes off the air, we rejoin RAW and in the arena we hear “Glamazon” playing over the PA system and the current WWE Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix walks out from behind the curtain, black attire and gold draped across her shoulder. The Glamazon climbs onto the apron before climbing onto the top rope before flipping into the ring. “Paparrazi” now plays over the speakers and the fans give a nice cheer for the arrival of Melina. The Diva walks out wearing red attire and makes her way down to the ring before doing her patented entrance which gets some whistles from the men, meanwhile Jerry drools at the announce table. The referee calls for the bell and two divas lock up in the centre of the ring. Phoenix uses her strength to back Melina into a corner, she then knees her in the gut. Melina staggers out of the corner and is then whipped into the opposite corner hard, and the impact makes her fall to the ground. Beth measures Melina, and runs at her looking for a clothesline but Melina ducks and Beth runs straight into the ropes. Melina grabs her from behind and then rolls her up. And the referee counts the three! Melina has beaten Beth in a quick match! Melina gets to her feet and has her hand risen, but Beth isn’t finished with Melina as she attacks her from behind. Phoenix, enraged by her loss, clubs Melina with forearm smashes, before she backs off, and waits in the corner. She waits for Melina getting to her feet, but the crowd begins cheering as Mickie James sprints down to the ring and slides into the ring. Beth tries to get a jump on Mickie but James eludes her and ducks a punch, she then backs Beth into the ropes and clotheslines her over the top. Phoenix lands on the mat with a thud while Mickie James welcomes her back into the ring. Melina gets to her feet and because it’d be two on one, Beth thinks better of it and backs up the apron.


Back from the commercial, the PA system plays “This Fire Burns” and Mr. Money in the Bank CM Punk walks out to a good amount of cheers from the crowd. With a new Punk t-shirt, The Straight-Edge Superstar walks down the ramp, looking very smug with himself. He gets to the apron, and before stepping into the ring, points at the camera and then points at the briefcase. Once inside the ring, he is handed a microphone. Punk begins by introducing himself as CM Punk, the only clean cut, the only Straight-Edge Superstar on RAW and the only Superstar with the Money in the Bank briefcase. He says that he can cash this in any time he wants, he could even cash it in tonight, but he will wait for the right time and he doesn’t care who is champion. He says that soon, very soon, he will be the WWE Champion. But then “Get Down On Your Knees” blares over the PA system, the fans start booing Jack Swagger, who after his cocky promo last week has earned some more hate from the crowd. Swagger climbs into the ring and grabs a microphone, he tells Punk that he shouldn’t be thinking about the WWE Championship, and instead he should be focused on the match tonight. Swagger says that once he defeats Punk, he’ll go back to Ric Flair and demand to be inserted into the number one contenders match later on tonight. Punk doesn’t seem to impressed by this and asks Swagger who he thinks he is interrupting him! Swagger says that he is the All-American American and a future WWE Champion, whereas Punk retorts by saying he is Mr. Money in the Bank and he is the man who is going to beat him tonight.

Punk hands his briefcase to the referee who then calls for the bell and the two Superstars go at it. The match was a very good back and forth bout, but in the early going Swagger was on top as he used his Amateur wrestling background to keep Punk off his game. Swagger kept Punk on the ground, locking in a variety of holds which Punk would eventually get out of but then put straight back into another hold. Swagger took some time to taunt Punk about this and you could see Punk was getting annoyed with himself more than anything. The rage in Punk shined through when he managed to get some offense in, using some stiff kicks and elbows to hurt Swagger. The ending came with Punk having Swagger in the corner. Punk is in the opposite corner but runs at Swagger and smacks him in the face with a running knee before connecting with a massive bull dog which gains a near fall. Punk then measures Swagger as he gets to his feet and then pulls Swagger onto his shoulder looking for the Go To Sleep but Swagger manages to wriggle away before kicking Punk in the gut and attempting a gutwrench powerbomb... but Punk counters and gets Swagger up on his shoulders and connects with the GTS! The referee counts the pin and Punk is handed his microphone. But then the celebrations stop as fire illuminates the stage which draws Punk’s attention. Mr. Money in the Bank stands, ready for the arrival of Kane but there is no Kane. Everybody in the arena is shocked then when Kane’s corner pyro goes off without warning and Punk scans the arena looking for The Big Red Monster. No sign of him yet, but then the lights in the arena suddenly goes out! The fans murmur in anticipation of what is going on, and when the lights turn back on... Kane is in the ring behind CM Punk! The boos from the crowd alert Punk but its too late as Kane has his hand wrapped around Punk’s throat and plants him with a choke slam! The cameras catch Kane shouting “it’s done... no going back” as he pulls Punk to his feet before planting him another chokeslam! Kane looks down at Punk, laughing manically before lifting his arms in the air and setting off his corner pyro and leaving to his theme music.


We return to RAW after the boring commercials into a replay of what went down before the commercial break. After which the announcers discuss what is wrong with Kane and what is causing him to act the way he is, but neither can come up with a plausible reason. Michael Cole then links us to Josh Matthews who is backstage waiting. The cameras cut to the back and Matthews announces his second interviewee of the evening, William Regal! Regal walks into the shot to a good amount of boos, with the two men who were with him behind him. Matthews begins the interview by getting to the juicy bits and asking Regal to tell him, tell everybody, who these two men are and why did he attack Rey Mysterio like that. William then introduces the duo, he introduces the long haired man as The Sinister Scotsman, Drew McIntyre and introduces the bald man as The English Terror as Nigel McGuiness which draws a couple of cheers from the more Indy knowledgable fans in the arena, but other than that it’s a muted reaction. Regal then steps aside to let Drew and Nigel answer Josh’s second question, Drew begins by saying that he is from Scotland and where he comes from we settle our arguments with fists and that’s what they were doing, making a statement of Rey Mysterio for his insults of Great Britain last week. Nigel then takes the microphone and tells everybody that what Rey said about Britain was an insult and needed to be made an example of. Regal takes the microphone and says that he will take the Intercontinental Championship away from Rey, because Rey only disgraces that championship. He then says that when he does, instead of the Intercontinental Championship, he will bring back the prestigious European Championship.

We then cut to another part of the backstage area and we are The Legacy locker room where Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase are getting pumped up, getting ready for their match in a few minutes. The tag team stop what they are doing when Randy Orton stomps in, the fans begin to send some heat his way but he doesn’t care, he actually seems happy. The first thing Orton does is pat Ted and Cody on the back, and he tells them that he is happy about what they did last week on RAW, he impressed him last week when they attacked Triple H. But then he says that they need to continue their good run of form by defeating Cryme Tyme tonight in the number one contenders match and then face Miz and Jericho next week, before becoming the World Tag Team Champions. Ted and Cody nod along before Cody says that he shoudn’t worry, he says Cryme aren’t in their league and they will win the World Tag Team Championships next week. Orton nods in agreement and then DiBiase says that once they win the tag team titles, Orton will win the WWE Championship and every member of The Legacy will hold championship gold.

Back on RAW, it’s match time as “Bringin’ Da Hood T U” plays over the speakers, and the duo of JTG and Shad Gaspard, Cryme Tyme, walk out to a nice cheer from the crowd. The two high five each other before walking down to the ring and waiting for their opponents. “New Day” plays over the PA system and the fans respond with a good amount of heat directed at Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase, The Legacy. Once the two are in the ring the referee calls for the bell. It’s a strong start for JTG who is the legal man who keeps Rhodes away from his partner and Cryme Tyme utilizes quick tags to keep them on top. Eventually after a distraction by Ted DiBiase, Rhodes low blowed Shad and got the tag to his partner. The next few minutes consisted of Legacy using quick tags and underhanded tactics to keep the bigger Shad on the mat and away from JTG. The ending came when Rhodes had just tagged in DiBiase, who then whipped Shad into the corner and tried to run at him but Shad got a boot up and Ted ran straight into it. DiBiase staggered away but when he turned round he got smashed with a huge clothesline. Shad then got the hot tag to JTG, while DiBiase got the tag to Rhodes. JTG ducked a clothesline and hit a drop kick before knocking DiBiase off the apron, JTG continued his quick fire offense but he made a mistake going to the top rope as Rhodes knocked the ropes and JTG fell, groin first into the turnbuckle. Rhodes then went to the top rope, but JTG punched him in the gut and then knocked him down. J’ then got to his feet and launched himself, hitting Rhodes with a cross body and trying for the pin but DiBiase broke it up. Shad got back into the match and clotheslined DiBiase over the top rope. Shad then followed DiBiase to the outside, JTG was distracted and Rhodes took advantage and rolled him up in a school boy, he even attempted to pull JTG’s jeans but J’ still kicked out. Rhodes got up quickly but then walked right into a small package, for the three count and Cryme Tyme won. JTG rolls out of the ring and is joined by Shad while Rhodes is joined by DiBiase in the ring, who questions what went down and Cody explains he was caught by surprise.

We quickly head backstage where we see The Viper, Randy Orton watching a television screen, obviously just been watching what went down in the match. Orton is shaking his head at what he saw, The Legacy losing to Cryme Tyme and Legacy will not face The Miz and Chris Jericho next week for the World Tag Team Championships.


We head back to Monday Night RAW and we are backstage where Santino Marella and Rosa Mendes are sat on a sofa, getting rather cosy. The duo are just talking but then the WWE Women’s Champion, Beth Phoenix walks in and assumes something else is going on. She questions Santino bout what he is doing, he innocently says that they were just talking but Phoenix isn’t buying that. She asks Rosa where she was when she was attacked by Mickie James, and Rosa can’t speak instead she utters nothing, and Beth has had enough and takes her leave. Santino and Rosa glance at each other with a worried look on their faces as we cut back to the arena.

Back in the main arena we see Dolph Ziggler in the ring, with his music fading out. A few seconds pass by before “Game” plays over the PA system and the fans respond with a massive cheer, and after a few seconds Triple H appears on the stage, WWE Championship around his waist. He walks down the ramp, round the ring and onto the apron before spitting his water out. Once inside the ring he hands his WWE Championship to the referee and he calls for the bell. Ziggler walks to the centre of the ring and holds out his hand, he is audibly heard saying “Hi... my name is Dolph Ziggler”. Surprisingly, The Game shakes Zigglers hand... but then pulls him in for a huge spinebuster! He then pulls Ziggler to his feet and plants him with a Pedigree for the 3 count! In one of the quickest matches in recent memory, The King of Kings has won and is handed his championship before leaving the ring, pleased that he has took some of this frustration out.

We head backstage and for the second time tonight, we see Randy Orton staring at a TV screen watching what Triple H just did to Dolph Ziggler. With his arms folded, The Viper stares at the screen before walking out of the locker room and walking down a hall way. A graphic appears at the bottom of the screen telling us that he will be in action against Kofi Kingston after the commercial break, in the main event, to determine who will face Triple H at Backlash for the WWE Championship.


It’s main event time and thus... “SOS” plays over the PA system and the Jamaican Superstar makes his way down to the ring, the man known as Kofi Kingston hops onto the apron and swings into the ring before waiting for his opponent. “Voices” blares out to blistering heat and The Viper, Randy Orton walks slowly out to the ring, he takes his time making Kingston wait. Once Randy is in the ring, the referee calls for the bell and we are off. This match was a very entertaining main event, Kofi surprinsingly got a lot of offense in the earlier going, even to the point of getting a few near falls, the fans growing in belief that he can knock off Orton for the second time in two weeks. Randy was reeling but reached into his back of tricks and turned the tables on Kofi. From there on, Randy dominated Kofi, methodically dissecting Kingston, body part by body part. Kofi showed brief flashes of a comeback but Orton put a stop to that quickly by using all of his experience. The ending to the match came with Kofi in the fabled Orton chinlock, Orton kept Kingston in the hold for a long time, wrenching it, trying to make Kofi give up but the Jamaican Superstar was not going to give up. He drew strength from the crowd and managed to elbow Orton in the gut to break his hold. Kingston then used the ropes to rest for a moment, but Orton wasn’t about to let that happen, he walked over to Kingston and went to grab him but Kingston took Orton by surprise with some knife edge chops, pushing Orton back all the way into a corner. Kofi whipped Orton into the opposite corner and ran at him hitting a big splash in the corner and Orton staggers out right into a kick to the skull which results in a near fall. Kofi then picked Orton and whipped him off the ropes, Orton rebounded and ducked a clothesline attempt but stopped behind Kofi and planted him with an Inverted Headlock Backbreaker! Orton then slammed himself to the ground, and began pounding the mat waiting for Kofi to get up and when he did... he went for an RKO but Kingston pushed Orton away who rebounded off the ropes right into a Trouble In Paradise!! But Orton rolled out of the ring! Kofi searches the ring for Orton to get the pin but he then realizes that Randy is outside the ring, Kofi rolls out of the squared circle and catches his breath for a second before trying to get Orton’s limp body off the ground. This takes at least fifteen seconds to get Orton back into the ring because it seems Orton is knocked out. The referee begins counting the three but only gets to two and three quarters! Kofi questions the referee’s decision and then goes back to Orton. But Kofi doesn’t realize Orton is on his feet and walks right into an RKO! Orton covers Kofi and the referee counts the pin!

Orton lies on the mat, holding his forehead, recovering from the helacious match that he just took part in. The Viper uses the ropes to get to his feet and has his arm raised by the referee but Orton’s expression changes from pain to anger in a split second and he dives on top of Kingston and clubs him in the back over and over before backing away and the fans begin to boo as they know what he is about to do. Orton backs up, seething, teeth clenched, he sprints forward looking for the Punt Kick but suddenly “Game” plays out to a massive reaction and Triple H sprints out from the back and slides into the ring before taking Orton down to the mat with a spear. The Game throws rights and lefts at Orton who tries to cover up but The Cerebral Assassin’s blows are too heavy to block. The WWE Champion is incensed and isn’t letting up until Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase attack him from behind. They knock The Game off Orton and take turns throwing punch after punch at him, but The Game gets a rush of adrealinene and punches both of them away before focusing on Ted, punching him in the corner before Orton gets involved and hits the back of HHH’s knee with a chop block! The Viper and his Legacy stable mates take turns in attacking The Game. Eventually, Orton tells his brethren to hold Hunter up for him, obviously going to hit the RKO until... Kofi Kingston appears again with a steel chair in his hand he swings it at Orton who ducks and quickly leaves the ring but Ted DiBiase isn’t so lucky, he gets smashed in the gut before being hit in the back! Rhodes and Orton back up the ramp, leaving DiBiase in the ring with Kingston and HHH who is just getting to his feet. Hunter welcomes Orton back into the ring but Randy isn’t having any of it.

“Also sprach Zarathustra” booms out over the speakers and gains a few cheers from the crowd as the RAW General Manager walks out with a microphone in his grasp. The sixteen time World Champion tells everyone that since Triple H and Randy Orton want to kill each other so badly, and since Randy Orton won the number one contenders match, Randy Orton will go one on one with Triple H for the WWE Championship in a No Holds Barred match at Backlash! Triple H smiles at the decision while Orton doesn’t show much emotion at all; all he does is stare at Triple H who spots DiBiase moving on the mat. Ted gets to his feet and his warned by Rhodes but it is too late as The Game kicks him in the gut and plants him with a massive Pedigree to end the show as Randy Orton watches on as Triple H stands above his Legacy cohort!

Re: Calum Presents: WWE 2009 - The Fear That's In Your Eyes

Don't think I'd forgotten about you First off though mate, I wish you the very best of luck with this flying solo, I know you've got the legs in you to do it.

Interesting choice going with Flair as the GM, but I'm sure you have an idea for what you are doing with him, as he has history with quite a few of the key players on Raw. I thought Orton would come out here, and I like that you went with the fake act from Orton right away, only for Flair to dismiss it. Good because it is typical heel Orton to do that and also makes Flair look strong as an authority figure as he's dealt with the number one heel right away. Great chance for Kofi in the main event with possibly getting a shot at the WWE Title. You seem big on allowing fresh faces to come into the main event scene as displayed by this and Matt Hardy on Smackdown and doing this is never bad for a BTB. Nice start to the show and a good bombshell to kick us off.

Mysterio getting the win over Knox was a must, and I'm glad Regal got involved afterwards and didn't cost Rey the match, as having Knox win would have given him a claim to the title which I don't think he should have, as the Mysterio/Knox feud irl was terrible, but you'd do a lot better if you did decide to go that route I'm sure. Brutal assault after the match from these mystery attackers. At first I thought it was the Kings of Wrestling, but who you revealed them to be afterwards made a lot more sense.

Glad you're trying to finish up the whole deal with Jericho and Rourke; it isn't needed in a BTB. (Although Jericho vs Steamboat was an awesome match) and it is time for Jericho to move on. Pairing him up with Miz is really good and making them the champions is really interesting. Miz could have really done with something like this when he broke up with Morrison irl, and Jericho is a perfect mentor for him as Miz circa 2011 was very similar to Jericho so I like that you made the connection and paired them up. Also Morrison getting to have an ally in Michaels is a big rub for him too, but I just hope that the Tag Team titles don't play second fiddle in this feud, but I know you've said that you have big plans for the tag division so I won't be too concerned about this.

Wasn't that interested with the Divas at this point in time because there was no effort put in whatsoever, so I hope you really make a go of this division. Nice little segment to give some attention to the girls though. Keep Phoenix as the champion forever.

Nice little exchange between Punk and Swagger before their match; both men were on point and said the right stuff. Seems like it would have been a pretty good match and would've been nice to see you write it out in full, but you've told me all about the recaps. Was just brutal from Kane afterwards and this looks like it will be a really good feud to just establish Punk as the briefcase holder by fending off a big guy like Kane. Nice segment.

McIntyre and McGuiness are much better choices and they'll not only be good as back up for Regal, but also a strong addition to the tag team division too. I like the nicknames you've given McGuiness too, not sure if you made that up or it is an existing one. But Regal bringing the European Championship back is an awesome idea, but my only problem is that Rey's 2009 IC Title run was actually really good so I hope that you're able to beat that comparison with what was done irl. Good little piece of feud development and nice to not keep us waiting for the identities of these two mystery men.

With heel champions, as well as the little backstage interaction with Orton putting the pressure on them, I knew for sure that Legacy were going to lose this match. Again, would have been nice to read this match in full because it seemed like a pretty awesome one. The classic "watching on the TV" cut scene Good win for Cryme Tyme but I don't expect them to topple the champions next week; would be just silly if that happened.

Santino you player

I see you might not be the biggest Ziggler fan because that was a classic Triple H burial right there. Orton on Dat TV Screen again.

Great main event to read and even in defeat this match did wonders for Kofi Kingston, putting on a very strong showing against the top heel in the company, but alas Orton was always going to win. Not sure if you'll have him go over at Backlash or not just yet, as there is still a couple of weeks of build up left to go. Not sure where Kofi goes from here as he is very much out of the title picture for now but I hope that he remains involved with Legacy so he can renew this little minifeud with Orton. Would be cool especially as you have Batista out and Michaels is involved with Jericho and Rey is the IC Champion so Kofi has some room to move into which would be really cool to see. Triple H coming out afterwards was predictable, as was Legacy getting involved. Kofi with the chair is a weird thought to picture, and firmly places him in Legacy's ire for now which is good to see. The No Holds Barred Match is a great way to just end this whole ordeal with Triple H and Orton, and even though I'm not a fan of someone losing at Mania but winning the title at the following PPV, the only way I can see this feud ending is Orton winning at Backlash and Triple H being taken out, but if Triple H were to win I assume Orton would get drafted to Smackdown which would be the total wrong way to go unless you feud him with Kingston. You've got a lot of ways this thing can go.

Overall a good Raw, nothing that special but I get that you had to follow your partner's lead from last week. All the developing stories were advanced which is good, and there are several different angles developing which is good to see. Looking forward to Smackdown mate

Re: Calum Presents: WWE 2009 - The Fear That's In Your Eyes

First off, huge thank you to TWG for the words of wisdom. <3

Now onto the preview...

WWE Friday Night SmackDown
Arkansa, Little Rock; Alltel Arena
April 17, 2009

SmackDown rolls into town for another week, and we are in Arkansa as the Superstars of SmackDown battle in the Alltel Arena. It’s sure to be another action packed edition of SmackDown, and here is just a taste of what you can expect.

Last week on SmackDown, John Cena returned to his spiritual home, the place where the current World Heavyweight Champion started his career, where he got his big break. Cena won his first World Championship on the blue brand, defeating the retired John Bradshaw Layfield at WrestleMania – before being drafted to RAW and becoming the biggest Superstar in the WWE. Now, the biggest Star has returned to SmackDown, and with that continues a rivalry which has lasted years. In two thousand and six, John Cena defending his World Championship in the Elimination Chamber, defeating five other men, but the man who he will face at Backlash cashed in the Money in the Bank briefcase and became the World Champion. The war has waged on, on RAW but now it’s here on SmackDown, we saw at the end of the last show – Edge and Cena have unfinished business, what can we expect from these two great rivals?

While Edge won the number one contenders match to become John Cena’s challenger at Backlash, another rivalry continued as Jeff Hardy cost his brother the match, brawling with him out of the ring and through the crowd. Matt Hardy defeated Jeff at WrestleMania and now feels it is his time to become a certified main eventer and a hold that coveted World Heavyweight Championship. Jeff firmly put him in his place as he made sure that Matt didn’t forget about him, Jeff sent a message to Matt – telling him to be the champion, he would have to defeat him first. No match has been made between the two yet, and Jeff Hardy is in action tonight against Christian, a no doubt great match. How will Matt take his revenge, or will he?

Like we said before, this edition of SmackDown is going to be action packed – and that has something to do with the WWE United States Championship being defended on the show. The current champion, M.V.P watched as Shelton Benjamin and R-Truth both pinned either Chavo Guerrero or Christian in the Fatal-4-Way last week. The SmackDown General Manager, Theodore Long created a Triple Threat WWE United States Championship match tonight. Who will win, the former champion Shelton Benjamin, R-Truth or will M.V.P retain the gold?

Gail Kim last week won the number one contenders match to face the WWE Divas Champion – Maryse at Backlash. Kim defeated one of the strongest Divas on SmackDown, Natalya. With the win, Kim sent a message to the champion, beware because she is coming for that belt. Tonight, Maryse will get a chance to show a message of her own, she teams with Natalya to face off against her challenger and her tag team partner, Maria in tag team action.

The WWE Tag Team Champions, Carlito and Primo defended their titles against Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder last week, and they managed to retain the gold in a hard thought win. After the match, The Colons were backing up the ramp, pleased with their work but were attacked from behind – by the imposing figure of Ezekiel Jackson. Jackson decimated the two brothers before The Brian Kendrick joined in after the damage was done, rubbing it in the face of the champions. Kendrick and Jackson sent a message to the champions, but The Colons informed us all when they spoke with The Bella Twins that they have something in store for Kendrick and Jackson this week on SmackDown.

All this and more on WWE Friday Night SmackDown!

Re: Calum Presents: WWE 2009 - The Fear That's In Your Eyes

WWE Friday Night SmackDown
]17.04.09 | Alltel Arena

SmackDown begins the usual opening video, showing off the best Superstars of SmackDown and afterwards we enter into the arena, where a huge pyrotechnic display sounds off. Once the smoke clears, we can see and hear the fans going crazy, as the camera pans around the arena. Few seconds later and we join our announce team.

Jim Ross: Welcome ladies and gentleman... you are watching Friday Night SmackDown... my name is good ol’ Jim Ross and we have an explosive show lined up for you tonight.

Todd Grisham: That is indeed true, hello everybody my name is Todd Grisham and I’m so excited to see what happens tonight.

Matt Striker: It’s going to be a huge show; we have the fallout from last week’s main event where Jeff Hardy attacked his brother, Matt Hardy during his tag team match.

Todd Grisham: Not only that, but we have a huge championship match on the show tonight.

Matt Striker: The United States Championship to be precise.

Jim Ross: And the match is even bigger due to what happened last week in the number one contenders match – both R-Truth and Shelton Benjamin pinned Christian and Chavo Guerrero... at the same time. And as a result... we will see a triple threat match where MVP will defend his coveted championship.

The commentators go silent, as does the fans until...


The arena gives out a nice pop for the arrival of the SmackDown General Manager, Theodore Long. Teddy walks down to the ring wearing a disgusting brown suit but he still feels the need to give a little dance in the ring once he gets there. Somebody at ringside gives him a microphone and once the fans quieten down, he speaks...

Theodore Long: Ladies and gentleman... welcome to Friday Night SmackDown, playas’.

Long gets a nice pop, albeit a cheap one, he nods at the fans...

Theodore Long: And listen up because we have a fantastic show lined up for you.

Another cheap pop...

Theodore Long: One of our star matches t’night... came about under strange circumstances... but what a match we have scheduled. It will be... Shelton Benjamin...

Little bit of heat...

Theodore Long: Versus R-Truth

Nice pop...

Theodore Long: Versus the defending United States Champion... M... V... P.

Another nice pop, this time for the current United States Champion...

Theodore Long: In a triple threat match for the WWE United States Championship. But that isn’t the only huge match we have for you playas.

Long pauses with a smile on his face...

Theodore Long: I’ve created this match for our main event tonight. It will be a tag team match and it will be The Big Show...

Good amount of heat for the biggest man on the roster...

Theodore Long: He will team with Matt Hardy.

Louder heat this time, for the one time fan favourite, Matt Hardy...

Theodore Long: And they will battle against... Edge.

A mixed reaction for ‘The Rated R Superstar’, some boos, some cheers...

Theodore Long: And Edge will team with... his opponent at Backlash... the World Heavyweight Champion... John Cena!

The fans erupt for the huge match that has just been made for tonight...

Theodore Long: Ya feel me? Enjoy the shows playas.

Teddy begins to walk to the ropes and starts to exit, but then...


Long stops in his tracks and the fans begin to boo as the huge Russian walks out from the back, with a scowl on his face. Long gets back into the ring, and the Russian meets him in the centre of the ring, after picking a microphone up from the steel steps.

Vladimir Kozlov: I told you last week... I want better competition... you said you would get me a match tonight.

Kozlov gets a little closer to Long...

Vladimir Kozlov: Don’t care about these matches you talk about... I want a match. A match against good competition... or else I’ll hurt you.

Long takes a step back from Kozlov...

Theodore Long: Uh... listen playa... I-


The fans give a good pop as Kozlov turns to the stage to see Evan Bourne standing on the stage with a microphone in hand.

Evan Bourne: So... Kozlov... I hear you’re lookin’ for some competition.

Kozlov nods at Bourne as Long has left the ring...

Evan Bourne: Well look no further... I’m your competition.

A wry smile comes across the face of Kozlov as Bourne’s music plays again and he walks down to the ring.

Jim Ross: I’m not sure this is a smart move by Evan Bourne, going against a man almost double his weight and size.

Todd Grisham: Bourne is fearless, he’ll be fine against Kozlov.

Matt Striker: What about that announcement from Teddy Long though, Edge and his opponent teaming together, John Cena, against Matt Hardy and Big Show. How will those two co-exist?

Jim Ross: I don’t know. But ladies and gentleman, join us afterhte break for this match-up.

And we head to a commercial...


We return just in time to hear the referee call for the whistle...

Match One
Singles Match
Evan Bourne vs. Vladimir Kozlov

In the beginning stages, the smaller Evan Bourne uses his speed to keep away from Kozlov, and get some good shots in on his opponent. Bourne manages to hit numerous high-flying manuveres which shows off his high-flying ability, with Kozlov providing the excellent base on which to do them on. But the action slows to a halt when Kozlov catches Bourne after he attempts a cross body, before slamming him down to the floor. Evan been the fantastic seller that he is, manages to convince the fans that it hurt a lot more than it did. Kozlov gets to his feet, adjusts his knee pads that were displaced earlier, in the middle of this Bourne has gotten to his feet, and starts to run at Kozlov but runs straight into a big boot! Instead of going for the cover, Vlad picks Bourne up, and hoists him up into a gorilla press position, but Bourne reverses into a Hurricarana position... Evan tries to execute the move but Kozlov uses his strength to stay on his feet with Bourne hanging upside down from his shoulders. Kozlov uses all his strength and power in his shoulders to lift Bourne up again and then slams him with a Powerbomb! The fans gasp at the speed at which Bourne hits the mat! Kozlov then hoists Evan to his feet, and whips him into the corner, Kozlov makes his way to the other corner before running at Bourne. But Evan dodges, and Kozlov runs straight into the corner to a good cheer from the crowd. Evan runs the ropes but on his return... runs straight into a Battering Ram from Kozlov. Bourne hits the mat with a thud and it looks as though he is out. Kozlov drops down and covers him, One... Two... Three!

Winner – Vladimir Kozlov @ 4.02

The ref calls for the bell and raises Vladimir’s hand. Kozlov stares down at the fallen Evan Bourne before leaving the ring, still with a scowl.

Jim Ross: I think Evan Bourne tried to do something he knew he couldn’t... and that’s not a slight on Bourne, because other men have tried and failed to topple the Russian.

Matt Striker: I honestly don’t think anybody can topple this man; he is a beast in that ring.

We then cut to the backstage area, where the fans go wild because we see John Cena sitting on a steel chair, lacing up his trainers for his match later. Cena spots someone and he stands up immediately, with the fans giving out a mixed reaction as they see Edge.

Edge: Whoa, calm your jets, Cena. I ain’t here to fight... just yet.

Cena backs off a bit, lifts the championship from the ground and puts it on his shoulder which Edge glances at...

John Cena: Then what are you here for?

Edge: I hate you.

Cena smirks a bit...

John Cena: Well... what a revelation that was.

Edge: And I know... that you hate me.

Cena nods...

Edge: But later on tonight... we need to work together. I want to be at full strength for Backlash and I’m sure you do too.

Cena scratches his chin as Edge starts getting animated with his hands and expressions...

Edge: So... what I’m saying... we need to work together to beat Hardy and Show.

Now that Edge has stopped talking...

John Cena: I know that... it’s a tag team match for crying out loud.

Cena pauses.

John Cena: But I get what you’re saying.

A smirk appears on Edge’s face.

John Cena: We do need to work together tonight... and everybody knows we don’t get on well. What I’m worried about... is if you can work with me... because I get a feeling that you’ll try and rough me up before our match at Backlash.

Another smile on Edge’s face...

Edge: Don’t worry... I will... but not tonight... I want to beat Matt Hardy and especially Big Show.

And with that, Edge and Cena share a nod before Edge walks out of the shot, leaving Cena to continue getting ready.


The video opens with Matt Hardy pinning his brother at WrestleMania

One night a year...

A shot of Triple H pedigreeing Randy Orton at WrestleMania

Superstars face off at the biggest stage...

Shot of CM Punk unhooking the MITB briefcase

For their moment...

We fade to black with the last image being John Cena holding the World Heayweight Championship up

But the pageantry is over...

We suddenly hear a women’s blood curdling scream

Then the video returns with Randy Orton kissing Stephanie McMahon with Triple H watching on...

All that remains...

Shot of Jeff Hardy hitting the Swantom Bomb...

Jeff Hardy:
The Backlash...

Shot of Edge hitting a spear...

The Backlash...

Shot of Kane hitting a chokeslam...

Before we see a silhouette of a man in a dark room, only seeing his shadows...

All that remains... is the Backlash.


We return to the arena to hear...


And the entrances for the second match of the night begin, as the WWE Divas Champion, Maryse and her tag team partner Natalya, walk down the ramp and arrive in the ring.

Jim Ross: Last week, Gail Kim won a number one contenders match to face Maryse at Backlash for her WWE Divas Championship. And tonight, if Gail manages to get a win over Maryse, she will have a huge psychological advantage.

Matt Striker: She definitely would.

Todd Grisham: Remember ladies and gentleman, later tonight we have a United States Championship match and a huge tag team main event.


The crowd give out a small pop at the arrival of the number one contender, Gail Kim and her tag team partner, Maria. The duo walk down the ramp, slapping hands with a few fans and sliding into the ring; keeping one eye on their opponent.

Jim Ross: The U.S Championship match should be huge, and should the tag team main event, but this will be a great match right now, a preview to their match at Backlash.

Matt Striker: Backlash is shaping up to be a great show, already we have the World Heavyweight Championship match announced, the WWE Divas Championship and I’m sure we will have much more announced.

Match Two
Tag Team Match
Gail Kim & Maria vs. WWE Divas Champion Maryse & Natalya

Gail Kim and Natalya kick the match off for their teams, recreating the match from last week. In the initial stages it is Gail Kim in control as she uses quick fire moves to keep Natalya off her game. Gail tags in the less experienced Maria who continues Gail’s good work until she makes a mistake which allows Natalya to ground her and use her submission based offense. Maria struggles but is no match for the more powerful Natalya. The graduate of the dungeon tags in her tag team partner, Maryse and she continues their teams momentum. Maryse pulls Marias hair around the ring as she messes with her opponent, taking a pause every so often to taunt Kim. Eventually this taunting and over confidence costs her as Maria breaks away from her and begins to get some offense of her own in. This is short lived as Maryse pokes Maria in the eyes to get back on top, she then tags in Natalya.

Natalya continues to keep Maria away from Gail, and continue to inflict pain on Maria. Natalya pulls Maria into the corner and lifts her onto the top rope. Maria is now sat on the turnbuckle, and Natalya tries to climb up in front of her, but she knocks her down with a punch to the gut. Natalya walks back but eats a boot square in the face. Maria then jumps off the ropes and connects with a swinging DDT!! Which lays out Natalya, both women are down. This is when Maria gets the hot tag to Gail and Natalya tags in Maryse and the two Backlash opponents go at it. Gail meets her in the middle of the ring but slips behind her and connects with a drop kick to the back. Maryse falls into the ropes and her neck hits the second rope hard which disorientates her. She holds her neck and seems to be choking, the referee checks on her and tells Gail to back off. While this is happening, Natalya rushes back into the ring to blindside Gail but Maria cuts her off and the two divas brawl to the outside. Gail is distracted by this and it seems Maryse has made a recovery as she kicks Gail in the stomach and goes for her patented DDT but Gail slides out of it and connects with Eat Defeat and covers her for the victory!

Winners – Gail Kim & Maria @ 3.27

Gail Kim has pinned the Divas Champion! Kim is joined in the ring with Maria; the two celebrate while Natalya pulls Maryse out of the ring. Maryse and Natalya back up the ramp, pausing half way to stare at Kim and Maria, who stare back. Gail motions across her stomach, signifying her intention to win the Championship at Backlash.

Todd Grisham: Well, I guess that means Gail will have an advantage at Backlash. Because now she knows she can beat Maryse.

Matt Striker: Keep in mind, that if Maryse wasn’t distracted by Maria then she probably wouldn’t have been pinned by Gail.

Jim Ross: I have to agree with Matt, Maryse was distracted so we can’t read too much into it. But anyway, moving on tonight ladies and gentleman, join us after the break when Jeff Hardy will be in action against Christian!


We return to SmackDown and are backstage where we see the beautiful Tiffany waiting with a microphone in her hand.

Tiffany: Ladies and gentleman... please welcome my guest... the United States Champion, M... V... P!

Nice pop for MVP as the camera pans out to reveal the U.S Champion standing beside Tiffany.

Tiffany: MVP, you have a Championship match tonight where you will defend your Title against both Shelton Benjamin and R-Truth in a triple threat match, are you prepared?

Tiff’ shoves the microphone underneath MVP’s mouth...

MVP: Of course, Tiffany. Of course I’m ready.

MVP pauses...

MVP: I’m always ready... always prepared. This is a Championship match, Tiffany... you better believe I’m ready.

Nice cheer for MVP as Tiffany takes back the microphone...

Tiffany: Are you at all angry about how you have to face two Superstars at once in order to defend your Championship?

Microphone change...

MVP: What happened last week... that was certainly different. But am I angry? No. It’s just one of those things... y’know.

Tiff’ for some reason nods...

MVP: I’m ready tonight, and neither R-Truth or Shelton Benjamin will be leaving with my Championship. At the end of the night... I’ll still be United States Champion.

That’s it for the interview as Tiffany takes the microphone back and watches as MVP walks away.

We cut back to the ring and hear...



One of the more popular stars on Smackdown, Christian appears from behind the curtain to a pretty big pop, wearing his regular black attire but with green trim – he begins to walk down the ramp. He uses his hand as a visor, looking for his peeps in the arena. ‘Captain Charisma’ climbs up the steel steps, enters the ring and climbs the turnbuckle.

Jim Ross: This match is going to be a slobber knocker, I can tell already.

Matt Striker: That’s true. Both Christian and his opponent, Jeff Hardy can go in the ring, very much looking forward to how this goes down.

Todd Grisham: But one has to wonder if Jeff will be fully focused on this match, considering the current differences between him and his brother.

Jim Ross: I don’t think that will be a problem, it will be difficult but Jeff knows he will have to push Matt to the back of his mind and focus on Christian, because Christian is a talented Superstar, and if Jeff isn’t fully focused then Christian will win this match.


The crowd rise to their feet and scream their heads off as one of the biggest Superstars on SmackDown, come out from behind the curtain. Jeff Hardy stands on the stage, and as his pyro goes off around him, he does his signature entrance before walking down the ramp, looking into the crowd. Once in the ring, he climbs to the second turnbuckle and taunts for the fans.

Jim Ross: This man reached the top, last year he won the World Championship but it was torn away from him when his own brother cost him the Championship and now Jeff is after revenge. But right now, he has a huge match against Christian. These two have history in the fact that these two along with their partners, were two of the greatest tag teams in history and have had great matches together.

Matt Striker: Christian will provide stern competition, he one of the most talented guys on the roster, and it won’t be long before he’s challenging for World Championships.

Todd Grisham: Guys, do you think Matt Hardy will be watching tonight?

Jim Ross: I have a feeling we’ll see Matt before his tag team match at the end of the show.

Match Three
Singles Match

Christian vs. Jeff Hardy

The match begins with a respectful hand shake between these two competitors, a lot of history between these two. The crowd are cheering loudly waiting for the two of them to get it on. The first few minutes were very fast paced, both men getting in a good amount of offense before Christian took the advantage by dodging a splash from the top turnbuckle. From here on in, Christian kept the high flying Hardy on the ground, using various submissions holds to keep him there. Eventually Hardy willed himself out of a Boston Crab and began taking it to Christian. The ending of the match came around this point, as Jeff was climbing the turnbuckle, Christian managed to get to the corner and climb up with him. He attempted a Superplex, but Hardy hooked his leg around the metal bar of the buckle. Jeff then head butted Christian and he fell to the mat below, Hardy then attempted a Swanton Bomb but Christian rolled out the way. Jeff rolled through but Christian was close to him and attempted a Killswitch, but Hardy twisted out of it and planted Christian with the Twist of Fate.

Winner – Jeff Hardy @ 11.56

And Jeff gets the win! The referee calls for the bell as the fans applaud the great match they just witnessed. Jeff uses the rope to get to his feet, and then goes over to the corner and asks for a microphone. Christian begins to roll out of the ring before Jeff is handed a microphone. Hardy walks over to the ropes, staring at the stage, visibly angry.

Jeff Hardy: MATT!!

The fans go a little silent, shocked at the venom in Jeff’s voice...

Jeff Hardy: You say all of this is my fault?!

Jeff catches his breath after the match and takes a second...

[COLOR="rgb(65, 105, 225)"]Jeff Hardy:[/COLOR] It’s not my fault you’re a jealous little bitch!

Pretty loud pop for Jeff calling his brother a bitch...

Jeff Hardy: Now get out here right now! I’m calling you out! Get out here so I can kick your teeth down your throat!

Another loud pop as Hardy throws the microphone to the ground, which makes a impactful cracking sound. Hardy screams “get out here!” to the stage, but no one appears. At least ten seconds pass by, and still no Matt Hardy.

Jim Ross: Well it looks like either Matt isn’t in the building or...

Todd Grisham: He could be scared to come out and face Jeff?

Matt Striker: And I don’t blame him if he is... look at the rage in Jeff’s face.

Back in the ring, Jeff is audibly heard saying “fine. I’ll come back there and get you”. Jeff exits the ring and stomps up the ramp, rage in his eyes. At this point we head to a commercial break.


We return from the break, where we are backstage and the cameras are following a very irate Jeff Hardy. The cameras keep following until JEFF IS BLINDSIDED FROM BEHIND!!

It’s Matt Hardy! With Jeff on the ground, Matt lays into his brother with kicks and punches... before picking him up and LAUNCHING HIM HEADFIRST RIGHT INTO A PRODUCTION BOX!! The attack is done though... as Matt continues to whale on his brother and one time friend! Eventually four road agents appear and restrain Matt from any more attacks. The crowd are incensed, while Matt still frantically tries to get to his brother.

The camera focuses in on the pain-stricken face of Jeff, laying on the ground, holding his face. And the show producers obviously think we should cut away as we start with the RAW Rebound.

RAW Rebound

The RAW Rebound begins with Vince McMahon announcing that Ric Flair is now the new General Manager of Monday Night RAW. Then, Randy Orton interrupts Flair and tells him that he deserves a WWE Championship opportunity, Flair tells Orton that he will have to earn it and he will face Kofi Kingston in a number one contenders match later on tonight. Kofi puts a good showing against The Viper but he isn’t strong enough as Orton wins with the RKO. A brawl then breaks out between Orton, Legacy and Triple H, after which Trips is saved by Kingston from a beat down. Ric Flair comes out and announces that Triple H will defend his WWE Championship against Randy Orton at Backlash – in a No Holds Barred match!

Once we are back, we are at the announce desk...

Jim Ross: Despicable... absolutely despicable.

Todd Grisham: Matt knew if he waited, Jeff would try and find him.

Jim Ross: Disgusting tactics from his own brother.

Matt Striker: Don’t you guys see the genius in that? Instead of coming out to face Jeff head on... he waited for his moment to pounce. I’m not condoning it, but it was a pretty smart move.

Jim Ross: It was still a disgusting way of going about it. A real man would have came down to the ring and faced his own brother, who he has made life hell for over the past few months.

Neither Matt nor Todd gets a chance to respond to J.R, as...


The tag team of The Brian Kendrick and Ezekiel Jackson make their presence felt as the fans rise to boo. The big and small duo walk down the ramp, Kendrick all smiles and arrogant, Jackson in contrast – scowling and all business.

[COLOR="rgb(65, 105, 225)"]Todd Grisham[/COLOR]: This tag team made a real statement last week, when they attacked Primo and Carlito after their match. They assaulted the WWE Tag Team Champions and it looks as if they have put their names firmly in the running for those Titles.

Matt Striker: That’s what you do... you put your name on the map and you get recognised. You get the Championship opportunity’s... you get the spotlight.

Back in the ring, Kendrick is handed a microphone and the man walks to the centre of the ring, with Ezekiel behind him.

The Brian Kendrick: Ahem. Do you know who we... are? Do you know who I am?

Boos from the crowd as Kendrick twirls the microphone in his hand...

The Brian Kendrick: My associate here...

Jackson takes a step forward...

The Brian Kendrick: Is the most intimidating man on SmackDown.

Jackson keeps his face rigid as the fans boo...

The Brian Kendrick: Ezekiel... why don’t you show these people how intimidating you can be...

‘Zeke complies by flexing his arms, showing off his bulging muscles before flexing his chest and back muscles, creating a fierce and scary sight...

The Brian Kendrick: Y’see ladies and gentleman... the... most... intimidating man on SmackDown.

Again, Kendrick draws boos in from the crowd...

The Brian Kendrick: Now... do you know... who I am?

‘You Suck’...

The Brian Kendrick: That’s cute.

More boos as Kendrick shakes his head...

The Brian Kendrick: I’m THE... Brian Kendrick. A multiple time WWE Tag Team Champion... the greatest Superstar on this brand. And just a nice guy.

Kendrick smirks away to himself, while ‘Zeke just listens...

The Brian Kendrick: Now... the WWE Tag Team Championships... the championships that I loved so much are now in the hands of... of... of idiots.

Oh... burn...

The Brian Kendrick: They are not fit to lace my... or my associate’s boots. And they are certainly not fit to wear those championships around their waists.

Heat from the crowd...

The Brian Kendrick: And y’know what annoys me the most... the fact those two... granted Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder a chance at the gold. How? Why the hell do those two get a shot... I was thinking about that... and then we came up with answer... Ezekiel...

Kendrick moves the microphone over to ‘Zeke...

Ezekiel Jackson: Carlito and Primo are scared. Scared to face us... because they know that we will destroy them and take their Championships.

And with that wordy response, Kendrick takes the microphone back...

The Brian Kendrick: We decided to take things into our own hands... last week my associate and I attacked The Colon’s and sent a message. That message was simply this...

Kendrick turns towards the stage, as does Jackson...

The Brian Kendrick: We want those WWE Tag Team Championships. You don’t deserve those Championships... we-


It’s a massive response for Carlito and Primo, no doubt partly due to the fact that Brian Kendrick will stop speaking now. The WWE Tag Team Champions walk out onto the stage, stand side by side, looking down at the men who attacked them. Kendrick and Jackson stare back.

Carlito: Listen man, ju’ are really starting to bore Carlito and his brother.

Primo nods along...

Carlito: See... Carlito and Primo were in the back... listening to ju’ two run juur’ mouths... about how Carlito and Primo... they don’t deserve to be WWE Tag Team Champions...

Kendrick mouths ‘that’s right’...

Primo: Y’see Kendrick... these titles... that ju’ say aren’t ours. The championships that ju’ say... we don’t deserve, despite of the fact that we won these... we’ve defended these and we’ve defeated all challengers... and defeated the World Tag Team Champions at WrestleMania.

Nice pop for The Colon’s while ‘Lito nods...

Carlito: Carlito don’t think ju’ get it, man. Ju’ may be former WWE Tag Champ’... but Carlito and Primo are the current Tag Team Champions.

Another good sized cheer...

Primo: And... that means that my brother and I... are the best tag team on this show.

Kendrick and Jackson shake their heads...

Carlito: But hey... Primo and Carlito... are generous guys... so since ju’ seem to want a championship match so bad... how about this... ju’ guys against us... at Backlash.

Quite a nice pop for the big Championship match that has just been made...

The Brian Kendrick: Fair enough guys... my associate and I can wait until then. We can wait until Backlash... to do what we did to you guys last week again... but this time take those WWE Tag Team Championships.

Round of boos for Kendrick as the two Colon’s share a quick look...

Primo: Oh yeah... hey I’m glad ju’ brought that up.

Carlito: Y’see... after ju’ attacked us... Carlito and Primo decided to come up with a way... to get our own back.

Bit of a cheer...

Primo: But y’see... we were going to just come down there and do what you did to us... but we won’t.

Little bit of boos...

Primo: Hang on... hang on. Y’see... Teddy Long told me that I’m in competition against the mute down there... Ezekiel Jackson.

‘Zeke doesn’t take too kindly to being called that as he walks towards the ropes, but Kendrick puts arm across his chest and stops him...

Carlito: Instead... Carlito thought it’d be best to wait and do it during the match. But that idea... isn’t the only thing the Colon’s came up with...

‘Lito and Primo share a smile...

The Brian Kendrick: Oh yeah... like what?

Primo: Look up...

The crowd erupts as blue gunge falls from the ceiling... falling right on top of the ring... covering Jackson and Kendrick. Kendrick and his associate fall to the floor because of the slippery guck, while Primo and ‘Lito are laughing furiously at the top of the ramp. The crowd are in hysterics as well, watching the huge frame of Jackson try to get to his feet, all the while battling with the loss of friction.

Matt Striker: Ha-ha... look at this guys... this was genius.

Primo and Carlito watch as Jackson crawls on his stomach over to the ropes, using them to get to his knees, he stares at the Tag Team Champions, as the camera closes in on his face, and we cut to a commercial with the last shot being Kendrick falling over again.


Back on SmackDown... the lovely Tiffany is standing by...

Tiffany: Ladies and gentleman... please welcome R-Truth!

The camera pans out to reveal said man...

Tiffany: R-Truth... you are involved in the triple threat match for the United States Championship match later tonight... what are your thoughts?

Truth scratches his chin before replying...

R-Truth: Well first of all Tiffany... I don’t believe ‘dat the match should be a triple threat... it should be a singles match... but ‘dat doesn’t matter anymore... what’s done is done.

Tiffany: Umm... I spoke to MVP earlier and he said that nobody but him was leaving with the United States Championship match... any reply?

A smirk appears on Truth’s face...

R-Truth: MVP won’t be leaving with the U.S Championship. And neither will Shelton Benjamin. Later on t’night... I’m goin’ down to ‘dat ring... and winning myself a Championship. I’m leaving with the United States Championship.

Slight pop...

R-Truth: And ‘dat... ‘dat is the truth.

Another pop for Truth, while Tiffany thanks him for the interview, he walks away and we cut to the announce table.

Jim Ross: R-Truth looks very confident for later tonight, he faces off against Montel Vontavious Porter and Shelton Benjamin in a bid to capture the United States Championship. A huge triple threat, right here on SmackDown.

Todd Grisham: MVP did look very confident also when we spoke to him.

Matt Striker: And I’m sure if we spoke to Benjamin then he would be just as... if not more confident.

Jim Ross: And-

Good ol’ J.R is interrupted as...

???: Excuse me!

It’s a huge amount of heat as the camera cuts to the ramp, where we see Vickie Guerrero walking down it, looking very pissed off.

Vickie Guerrero: Excuse me! EXCUSE ME!!

With every ‘excuse me’ the boos get louder and louder and before long she’s inside the ring...

Vickie Guerrero: Listen to me...

More boos...

Vickie Guerrero: Excuse me!!

Eventually the fans die down so Vickie can get a word in...

Vickie Guerrero: Did you see what happened last week? How dare Edge speak to me in that way.

Vickie is visibly annoyed...

Vickie Guerrero: How dare he... how dare he break up with me!

Loud cheer for Edge breaking up with the hated Guerrero...

Vickie Guerrero: I made him... I made him who he is and he has the audacity to talk to me like I’m a piece of dirt.

And again, the fans cheer...

Vickie Guerrero:I made my own family help him, over and over again... I gave him Chavo Guerrero’s services in a bid for him to win every match he ever competed in... and he did. I stuck by him when he was injured... I was on this show... on my own while Edge was sat at home... rehabbing his injury. And then I practically give him the World Heavyweight Championship on his return from injury... I inserted him into the Championship match... and he won... all thanks to me.
Vickie pauses to catch her breath while the fans boo...

Vickie Guerrero: I’m the reason he was World Heavyweight Champion, I’m the reason he won all those matches... I stuck by him... I made him who he is. He needs me!

Guerrero lowers the microphone, takes a glance at the stage before continuing...

Vickie Guerrero: He breaks up with me? It should-



Surprisingly, it’s a massive response for ‘The Rated R Superstar’ as he has effectively shut up Vickie Guerrero. Vickie watches as Edge makes his way down the ramp, sunglasses and beanie hat on, jeans and an Edge t-shirt also. Once in the ring, Edge is handed a microphone.

Edge: Seriously? Seriously Vickie? You made me?

Vickie nods...

Edge: That’s funny. Because to my knowledge... I was World Heavyweight Champion before you, and at Backlash I’ll be Heavyweight Champion after you.

Edge lowers his sunglasses and puts them on the collar of his shirt...

Edge: I was a star before you... I was ‘The Rated R Superstar’ before we were in a relationship. And you say that you are the reason that I won the Championship on my return from injury... well, uh... I hate to break it to ya’ Vickie... I won that match. Sure... you may have put me in the match, but I was the one that pinned Triple H, I was the one that got the three count - not you.

Vickie Guerrero: I-

Edge: Shut up... I’m not finished speaking.

Pop for Edge shutting Vickie up again...

Edge: Do you know why I went out with you?

Vickie Guerrero: Because you loved-

Edge: Wrong!

Another good cheer...

Edge: I was in that relationship because you were the SmackDown General Manager... not because I loved you. Truth be told Vickie... I hated you... I detested every minute I was you... you make me physically sick!

Despite the aggressive tone of Edge’s voice and the fact that Edge is a heel, the fans cheer again...

Edge: I used you... I used you to get what I wanted. And now... now you’re worth nothing to me.

Vickie is almost in tears...

Edge: You’re no longer General Manager... and you are no longer my wife. I don’t need you anymore!

Another cheer while Vickie wipes the tears and gets serious...

Vickie Guerrero: Is that true, huh? Well... well... you think you don’t need me? Well... I don’t need you. I found a better man... a stronger man... a more passionate man!

Edge smirks a bit...

Vickie Guerrero: You think that’s funny? Well when Big Show and I are together... he makes me forget all about you!

Edge fakes gagging as some of the fans gag for real...

Vickie Guerrero: And y’wanna know something... when we were seeing each other... I was with him a lot. Behind your back.

A smile comes across Vickie’s face...

Edge: You think I care? Huh? I’ve got better things to worry about... like winning back my World Heavyweight Championship back.

Bit of a mixed reaction for this...

Edge: You and Big Show... you two are welcome to each other. You and Big Show... two slobs together... the perfect couple.

This time, it’s a loud cheer with no boos but then...



Edge swiftly turns to face the stage, while Vickie begins to smile at the sight of her new man, The Big Show making his way down the ramp. Show walks round the ring, gets a microphone and then stands next to Vickie.

[COLOR="rgb(65, 105, 225)"]Big Show:[/COLOR] You-


Suddenly Show smacks the microphone of Edge’s head, and he crumbles to a heap on the ground. Show manhandles Edge to his feet and wraps his hand around his neck! Vickie screams orders at her new boyfriend to chokeslam her old one. But then Show lets go of Edge and throws him to the side...

It’s John Cena! Cena slides into the ring, runs at Big Show but ducks a punch before returning with a flying shoulder block, the fans are cheering as Show reels backwards towards the ropes. But he launches himself at Cena, who runs at Show as well... but ducks a clothesline and when he hits the ropes he hangs on. Show turns around, seeing Cena on the ropes, he sends himself over – but Cena falls to the mat and brings the top rope down with him and Show tumbles over!

Vickie joins him on the outside, while he attempts to get back into the ring, but he notices Edge now on his feet! Cena and Edge stand on guard for Big Show’s attempt to get back into the ring, but eventually Vickie calms him down and the duo begin to walk backwards up the ramp.

Jim Ross: John Cena just saved his tag team partner for later tonight from a hellish beating, but in the process saved his Backlash opponent.

Matt Striker: Cena must be thinking in the short term, because if that was me then I would have left Edge to Big Show.

Todd Grisham: Maybe that’s the difference between you and Cena, he has honour.

Matt Striker: The hell with honour, it’s dumb by Cena, because you know Edge will eventually stab him in the back.

Jim Ross: I’ve seen Edge do some dastardly stuff and I wouldn’t put it past him.

Edge and Cena share an awkward glance from the corners while the fans chant ‘Cena’.

Jim Ross: Ladies and gentleman... we have to take a commercial break, but join us after the break where later on we’ll have a triple threat for the United States Championship match and those two men in the ring will team up to face Big Show and Matt Hardy.


Back on SmackDown...


It’s a good amount of heat generated for the huge frame of Ezekiel Jackson, who walks down the ramp with The Brian Kendrick by his side – cleaned up after their altercation with Primo and Carlito earlier in the evening. Jackson climbs into the ring and stares at the ramp, looking all business.

Jim Ross: Ezekiel Jackson looks very, very angry. Kendrick is a lucky man to have this man on his side come Backlash, when they face off against Primo and Carlito for the WWE Tag Team Titles.

Todd Grisham: Do you guys think that Carlito and especially Primo, are regretting what they did to these two earlier in the night.

Matt Striker: Even if they are... it was fantastic, I’ve never seen something as funny as that in all my time as a announcer.


The crowd react to Primo’s entrance with a nice pop, and with Carlito at his side, the WWE Tag Team Champions walk down the ramp, smiling smugly at Jackson and Kendrick. Primo climbs into the ring, cautiously, keeping an eye on Jackson. He hands the ref his Championship, while Carlito stands opposite Kendrick on the mats.

Jim Ross: Whoever wins this match will have a psychological advantage going into Backlash in three weeks time. And Primo will need to use all of his ring smarts to defeat Jackson, because he is huge and very... very angry.

Todd Grisham: I’d hate to be in Primo’s shoes right now, against the hulking figure of Jackson.

Matt Striker: I could take him, y’know.

Todd Grisham: Sure you could, Matt.

And with the two men ready... we get the match underway...

Match Four
Singles Match
Primo vs. Ezekiel Jackson

The match began with Primo using his speed advantage to stay away from the bigger man, but still getting a few shots in here and there. Jackson started to get frustrated and ran at Primo who side stepped him and he ran straight into the ropes, Primo kicked him in the back of the head with a Drop Kick and then went to the top rope, Primo tried a crossbody, but ‘Zeke caught him and planted him with a body slam. From there on, it was all Jackson as he inflicted as much pain as possible on Primo. Carlito managed to get the crowd involved and the end was in sight as Primo battled up from a sleeper position, battled out and repeatedly kicked ‘Zeke in the legs getting him down to his knees. Primo ran the ropes before smacking Zeke in the face with a running knee, and got a near two count. Primo stood up and measured Jackson, and planted him with the Backcracker. He covered him, but Kendrick climbed onto the apron and distracted the referee – Carlito wasn’t having this and ran around the ring, but Brian dropped to the mat, and managed to kick the steel steps as Carlito was running round them, kicking them straight into ‘Lito’s knees. Primo was distracted by this and turned straight into a Sit Down Spinebuster which gained the three count.

Winner - Ezekiel Jackson @ 6.32

The win is met with a chorus of boos as Jackson climbs to his feet and his hand lifted by the referee. Kendrick joins him in the ring and the two celebrate while Carlito just realizes what has just happened.

Jim Ross: A huge win over one half of the WWE Tag Team Champions for Ezekiel Jackson that will give them a lot of momentum, despite the way they won it.

Todd Grisham: Primo looked like he was going to score a good upset win but after the distractions from outside then Jackson was able to take advantage, and pick up the win.

Matt Striker: The Colon’s may have had the first laugh but Jackson and Kendrick have won the second round for tonight.

Jackson and Kendrick exit the ring while ‘Lito joins his brother in the ring, the duo staring at their challengers.

We head backstage now and we are Theodore Long’s office, Teddy is looking through some papers on his couch, but rises to his feet swiftly, when Jeff Hardy storms in. The crowd cheer on their favourite Hardy.

Theodore Long: Jeff...

Jeff Hardy: Look... I want Matt... I want him... one on one... right now.

The crowd pop for the potential match that could be made for tonight...

Theodore Long: Listen playa’... I can’t do that. As you know Matt is already scheduled in a match t’night.

Little bit of heat as Jeff shakes his head.

Jeff Hardy: Matt attacked me earlier and I want pay back.

Theodore Long: I know... I know. But here’s an idea, playa’... you and Matt one on one... at Backlash.

The fans let out a big cheer as Jeff nods his head.

Theodore Long: And it’s not just goin’ to be any match... it’s goin’ to be a match that you two helped make famous... it’s gonna’ be tables... ladders... and chairs. T-L-C!

Even bigger cheer this time for the huge match-up made by Teddy Long. Jeff nods his approvement, he then turns on his heels and swiftly makes his exit.

Jim Ross: The Backlash card is shaping up nicely folks, and especially with this huge match that has just been announced.

Todd Grisham: Two brothers going at it, in a huge T-L-C match!

Matt Striker: The blood is sure to spill over when these two meet at Backlash.

Jim Ross: Yes, it’s sure to be a great match. But we’ve got a great match coming up; the United States Championship is on the line in a triple threat match. Join us after the break.


It’s very calm on SmackDown until we hear...


It’s a very good response for the potential new United States Champion, R-Truth comes out from the back and begins to rap his way down to the ring – once inside he gets ready for his opponent.

Jim Ross: M-V-P definitely has a disadvantage, the odds are against him to retain his Championship. But that will no doubt give encouragement to R-Truth and Shelton Benjamin knowing that this is their chance to get that Championship.

Matt Striker: M-V-P won’t give that Championship away without a fight and we saw how confident he looked earlier.

Todd Grisham: R-Truth looked very confident also, Matt, this is going to be a great match.


The second man in this triple threat, Shelton Benjamin walks out from the back and walks down to the ring, eyes fixated on R-Truth while taunting the fans. The crowd are booing but Benjamin doesn’t care as he hops up to the steel steps and enters the ring.

Jim Ross: Shelton Benjamin is one of the most talented Superstars on SmackDown and as a former United States Champion; he must be the favourite for this match.

Todd Grisham: Benjamin is a very gifted athlete. It will be a great match, M-V-P is up against it.


It’s a good reaction for the current United States Championship M-V-P. He comes out from the back, he goes to each side of the stage and pretends to shoot a basketball. Once that’s over with, he walks down the ring and slides into the ring.

Jim Ross: It’s been a great show thus far, and this match is going to make it even better, with three gifted individuals chasing the United States Championship.

Matt Striker: And remember, even after this match, we’re not finished; we still have the huge tag team main event to come with Edge teaming with his Backlash opponent, John Cena to face Matt Hardy and The Big Show.

Match Five

WWE United States Championship

MVP vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. R-Truth

The crowd were buzzing for this match and the wrestlers were the same, the action kicked off with Benjamin attempting to get Truth to attack MVP with him but no dice. He then attempted the same with MVP, trying to get him to help him attack Truth, again – no. Instead, Truth and MVP ganged up on Benjamin, beating him down before throwing him out of the ring and turning the match into a singles match. Truth and MVP traded blows, each man hitting some of their signature moves, and MVP almost picked up the pin when he connected with the Ballin Elbow – but Benjamin returned to the fray. He broke up the pin and then threw MVP into the ringpost through the turnbuckles, MVP then fell to the ground and Shelton turned back to Truth. The next few minutes consisted of Benjamin locking in various submissions, and even hitting a few of high impact moves, getting near fall after near fall. Eventually Truth managed to get some momentum going for him by fighting back, before hitting Benjamin with a Running Spinning Elbow. MVP returned to the action and started battling out with R-Truth. MVP whipped him into the corner, he then connected with a Superplex from the top rope. After a few seconds he covered him but Shelton broke it up, he picked MVP up, but MVP broke his arms away, kicked him in the gut, bounced off the ropes and connected with The Drive By Kick! MVP covers him, but Truth breaks it up and throws MVP out of the ring. Benjamin starts to get to his feet, but Truth connects with a Corkscrew Scissor Kick and picks up the win!

Winner and new WWE United States Champion - R-Truth @ 13:10

He’s done it! We have a new United States Champion, and his name is R-Truth! Truth climbs off Benjamin and slowly rises to his feet, exhausted from his battle while the fans cheer him on. The referee hands him the Championship, Truth takes it in his hands, stares at it before planting a kiss on it and raising it to the heavens. The camera glances at MVP who is leaning on the apron, watching Truth with the United States Title.

Jim Ross: We have a new United States Champion! What a match, and what an ending. And we aren’t even done yet tonight folks.

Todd Grisham: Congratulations to R-Truth but M-V-P looks very angry.

Matt Striker: Jeez, ya’ think Todd? Of course he’s going to be angry, he’s just lost his Championship.


We see a black and white picture of a house

Then we fade out and back to see quick fire shots of Brian Pillman and Davey Boy Smith

Narrator: Great men have trained there...

More shots of Bret Hart and Owen Hart

Narrator: Some of the most talented Superstars have trained there...

A shot of two people in a black, shadowy room...

Narrator: Now the dungeon is no more...

Quick shots of two men wrestling on the ground, in the same blackened room.

Narrator: And the last two people to graduate...

The camera goes back to focusing on just them in a darkened room.

Narrator: Are coming to Friday Night SmackDown.

The Hart Dynasty coming soon to Friday Night SmackDown



SmackDown returns and we are backstage where Tiffany is standing by.

Tiffany: Hi again. Please welcome my guest... she is the number one contender for the WWE Divas Championship... Gail Kim.

The camera pans out and indeed, it is Gail Kim.

Tiffany: Earlier on tonight, we saw you pin the Divas Champion, Maryse... do you think that gives you an advantage going in to Backlash?

Gail Kim: Well...

Suddenly, Gail goes flying forward, right into Tiffany, taking her to the ground as well! It is then revealed that Maryse is the culprit, she clubbed Gail in the back and down she went! The Divas Champion picks up her challenger and rams her, head first right into the TV screen behind him. The crowd are booing loudly, but Maryse doesn’t care as she looks down at Gail, holding her head in pain. Maryse kneels down beside Kim, holding her head up by her hair.

Maryse; Vous n'aurez jamais mon championnat!

And with that, Maryse swiftly stands up, and walks out of the shot.

We then cut to the main arena where we hear...


It’s an unfamiliar theme tune, but as we see Matt Hardy appear on the stage with a smug expression, the fans erupt into a frenzy of boos. Hardy ignores the boos, still looking very smug, he walks down the ramp and into the ring.

Jim Ross: Earlier on tonight, we saw Jeff Hardy call out his brother, Matt, but he never appeared so Jeff went searching, he was attacked from behind. And brutally attacked. Once Jeff was seen to, he went to the General Manager’s office and demanded to face Matt tonight.

Todd Grisham: But as Matt was already booked in a match tonight, Theodore Long decided to create a huge match for Backlash. Matt Hardy versus Jeff Hardy in a tables, ladders and chairs match. What a match!

Matt Striker: Matt shouldn’t be thinking about that just now though, he needs to think about this match right now. If he manages to pin John Cena, then that puts him right in the Championship picture for after Backlash.



It’s another round of boos as The Big Show appears with his girlfriend, Vickie Guerrero. The couple make their way to the ring, Big Show ignoring the fans while Vickie insults most of them.

Matt Striker: Could this be the new power couple in W-W-E?

Todd Grisham: I’m not sure about that, but The Big Show is a powerful man on his own. He can take on anybody in that locker.

Jim Ross: What I do know is this thing between Edge, Vickie Guerrero and The Big Show isn’t over.



It’s a thunderous mixed reaction for ‘The Rated R Superstar’, Edge walks out from the back, staring down at the ring below him. He walks half way down the ramp, before stopping and setting of his pyro, once at the ring, he cautiously slides into it.

Jim Ross: This seems very strange to me, it’s not often some of these fans cheer Edge.

Matt Striker: It’s obviously because Edge made Vickie look like a fool earlier on the night. But it may come back to haunt him, as Big Show will to teach him a lesson.

Todd Grisham: Well, anyway, Edge meets John Cena in the World Heavyweight Championship match at Backlash, who incidentally is his tag team partner for tonight. How will these two co-exist.


Another huge response, as a chorus of cheers is played for the arrival of the World Heavyweight Champion, John Cena. The Champ’ salutes the crowd before jogging down the ramp and sliding into the ring.

Jim Ross: We seen earlier that Edge told Cena that they need to work together,

Todd Grisham: And after that, John saved Edge from a beat down by The Big Show.

Matt Striker: I’m not actually sure if Cena should trust Edge, we’ve all seen how Edge can turn on you in a split second.

Main Event

Tag Team Match

John Cena & Edge vs. The Big Show & Matt Hardy

This match began with Cena and Show in singles action, Cena fought hard against the larger show, but after a distraction b Vickie Guerrero, Show took the advantage. Big Show and Matt Hardy exchanged quick tags to keep Cena away from his tag team partner. At one point, Cena managed to break away from the corner and attempt to get to his partner but Matt cut him off by diving on top of him. Matt clubbed the back of Cena before show boating for the crowd, wrong move as this allowed Cena to crawl to Edge and get the tag. To a good reaction from the crowd, Edge came sprinting into the match, taking Matt down with a clothesline. Another clothesline before Edge went for the cover. Show stopped the count but then Cena came back into the match, hitting a shoulder block, knocking Show out of the ring. John got back into his corner as Edge brought Hardy to the corner, and tagged in Cena. The two worked together and connected with a double suplex. The champion then picked Matt up and whipped him to the ropes, Show got back onto the apron and got the blind tag. Cena hit a nice powerslam but turned round and dodged a right boot! But the boot then connected with the referee knocking him out. The fans began cheering as Jeff Hardy sprints down the ramp and dives on Matt who rolled to the outside, he pounds away on Matt which distracts Show, but then turns round right into an Attitude Adjustment. The referee comes around and counts the pin!

Winners – John Cena & Edge @ 9.33

John rolls away from Show and lies on the mat beside him. The referee climbs into the ring and hands him his World Heavyweight Championship. We get a shot of Matt Hardy staggering up the ramp with Jeff close behind him. The two of them continue brawling through the curtain and in the backstage area. Meanwhile, Vickie is screaming for Show to get up but he isn’t budging. Cena starts to get up, using the ropes for leverage... but then Edge slides into the ring and plants him with a Spear!

Jim Ross: What? What is this?

Matt Striker: You knew this would happen, everybody knew this would happen.

Edge stands above Cena, smirking while the fans have started to boo him completely. He bends down and picks up the championship – he holds it up high as we close the show.

Re: Calum Presents: WWE 2009 - The Fear That's In Your Eyes

JAM's Review

RAW Feedback
Likin' the decision of appointing Ric Flair as your RAW GM, he'll definitely be an interesting choice as you have Orton and HHH both being former stablemates of his. I think Flair will certainly add something to that feud which I don't think is over quite yet. I like that you're giving Kofi a chance for the title but I don't think Kofi wins later on tonight but it'll be a great opportunity for Kofi to shoot up the card. Hoping you do allow him into the main event to give us something fresh, always good to have that once in a while.

Big fan of Knox here so I was hoping he'd be the one feuding with Mysterio. But I love William Regal as well and I'm glad you're giving him a chance too. Seems that he's reformed the Blue Bloods, yeah? I can already tell that I'm going to like this feud a whole lot. Hopefully you don't forget about Mike Knox though as I think he could've done so much better in his WWE run.

Wow, I see what you're doing here and I'm lovin' it! You take two legends such as Jericho and HBK and take two very promising young guys in Miz and Morrison and have them pair up. This is genius imo, I can't wait for what's in store for Miz and Morrison later on down the road. Their careers will definitely take a leap with Jericho and HBK by their sides. Or well even if HBK taking Morrison under his wing isn't final as of now, I believe it will be soon so I'm hoping for the best. Love this segment

Beth, Mickie, and Melina spearheading the divas division? This is exactly what needed to happen to give the divas division more credibility. You have three ladies who can go in the ring and put on a good match with each other. It's a question why WWE never did this but I'm hoping that you capitalize on this and give us a decent division.

More Punk/Kane? Hope it doesn't last long to be honest. Interesting that you have Swagger in this match. I think they could've put on a great match if given more time. Swagger is another person who you can give an opportunity to but not quite yet. Just build him up a little and push him gradually. As for Punk, I'm expecting big things from him for his cash-in, whether he do it as a heel or face is what interests me the most.

Oh wow, McIntyre and McGuiness? This is even better than I thought! European Championship, interesting. Keep the IC Title though, it's better. Draft coming up, should be good.

Ending was a great visual. You had Legacy looking strong after their loss earlier in the night and you made Kofi Kingston look really good after aiding HHH against Orton and Legacy. I see big things for Kofi in this thread and I hope that continues on. Don't know how you'll keep Kofi relevant since we have Orton vs. HHH set for Backlash but I'm sure you'll find a way.

Overall, really enjoyable RAW even if it was in recaps. You gave enough detail for it to be a good show. Looking forward to all the fresh faces in their respective divisions, that's something new definitely. Again, I'm looking forward to Miz & Jericho/HBK and Morrison a lot. Don't disappoint me now Good job!

Hmm, kind of a hit and miss opening for Smackdown. For your shows, I think you'd want a great opening segment or a match to really liven up the crowd. Here, it just felt a little flat with Long announcing matches and then a random match between Bourne and Kozlov. A big fan of Bourne so I was happy that he had some time but I knew he was just gonna job. Not sure Kozlov ever got on the mic and when he did, he usually never said much so maybe that's something to change. Not really a fan of Kozlov so I'm hoping you don't push him, just imo. But the matches that Teddy announced are sure to be big, looks to be a good main event later on. Kind of flat here as well with Edge interacting with Cena. I like that you had Edge come in all innocent but we all know that this could be a ploy. But yeah, the segment felt kind of flat but that's fine I guess, we'll just see what happens in the main event.

You have some decent divas on Smackdown as well, good to see that to be honest. The divas division could really be something but I'm not quite sure how long you'll keep both the divas and women's titles, but I'm liking what you're doing so far.

Was hoping that Christian vs. Jeff would've been done in a little more detail but what you did was fine. Jeff showing his anger here was good, I expect Jeff to show up in the main event somehow and cost his brother the match or maybe after the match. Or not, Matt takes care of Jeff here. To repeat it again, we've seen Matt vs. Jeff already and it was decent but here's hoping that you make it better than in real life man.

Haha the Colon's were a really good tag team so it was a shame their WWE run was short-lived. The tag team division on Smackdown is definitely heating up with these two teams plus you have others on there as well. What Kendrick had to say was good as he was always a pretty good promo man, better than London in their Hooligan days. So I'm looking forward to their imminent feud that's approaching.

Poor Vickie here but Edge was spot on. You portray him as being manipulative and angry which is exactly what Edge is which got him the name, “The Rated-R Superstar.” But his feud with Show looks boring to me. Maybe it's just me but I'm just not a big fan of Show so hopefully it doesn't drag out too long because Edge belongs in the main event and should be feuding with someone else. Having Cena save Edge here was pretty interesting since they're opponents at Backlash but that just speaks of Cena's character here so good booking move.

The main event was exactly how I thought it would be. But shouldn't Show and Matt win since Jeff came in and started brawling with his brother? But anyway, Edge spearing Cena and getting the last laugh was exactly what needed to happen to further this feud with Edge and Cena. They've had many battles in the past so I'm hoping this one is just as good.

Overall, it was a decent Smackdown show. A lot of things advanced especially with the Hardys feud and Cena/Edge. I do think you need to write the matches in more detail since you give us matches that are supposedly over ten minutes, just a thought man. Anyway, good job, onto the next!

Re: Calum Presents: WWE 2009 - The Fear That's In Your Eyes

Hmmm... like Jamjam I wasn't really that sure on the opening segment here. It seemed that Long coming out wasn't needed because he didn't really do anything special here, except from announcing the main event. I'd have just put the tag team match in the preview, and started off the show with Cena/Edge/Show/Vickie etc. But glad you nailed the Teddy Long classic tag team match main event Kozlov wasn't that interesting at this time because as I remember he had been beaten twice before Wrestlemania, so I understand you getting him out here to open the show in order to build him back up to monster status. Also glad you kept Kozlov's dialogue, and Bourne's for that matter, to a minimum as neither are exactly blessed on the mic. I liked the story the match told as well with Bourne continually trying to get offence in, but Kozlov cutting him short each time, and the win for the Russian was inevitable really. A solid match and a decent sized scalp for Kozlov to take on his ascent back up the ranks, but where does Bourne go from here? Possibly the US Title. As I said, good match, but I don't think this should have opened the show given how exciting the Smackdown main event is at the moment coming out of Wrestlemania.

I liked this little conversation between Cena and Edge here, but I think you could have opened the show with these two talking in the ring, as either one of them has plenty to talk about given the events of last week. I really liked Edge here though, and you've got him right purely because even though he said he wasn't we all knew he would.

The Divas division could have been great at this point in time irl if some effort was put into it from creative but we all know how that goes. Big win for Gail which will do her the world of good going into Backlash, would have liked to have seen this match get a little more time though, maybe just a couple of extra minutes. You have a good division there with the women involved so I know you'll deliver with the Divas.

I really can't remember any particular MVP promo, but this interview didn't really do it for me. It seemed a little generic, (I know I'm not the one to talk about promos though ) but looking forward to the US Title match nonetheless!

Dream Match for this time period with Christian taking on Jeff, and I understand that Jeff had to win in order for his programme with Matt to continue, but I'll go on record and say that I despise Jeff Hardy for some reason, and I'm not exactly keen on Matt either (I do like Matt in this thread though). Christian not winning the US Title shot last week surprised me and he's gone on to lose here again, so like Bourne, I'm wondering what he has to do now, unless you are starting some sort of losing streak angle, but I trust that you have plans for Captain Charisma. Jeff shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a microphone, but once again I understand why you've had him have these few words after the match because of his issues with Matt. Surprised Matt didn't come out for the fight, but it is textbook heel to dodge the fair fight only to attack from behind afterwards, so nice heel booking for Matt there.

Right now down to business! The Brian Kendrick was such a good character, and I like that you are using him well so far, and his tag team with Jackson was something they didn't really explore as far as I remember so it is good to see something refreshing here. Good promo from Brian, and I liked that Zeke got in his little line too. You got all of the accenty bits for Carlito and Primo dead on, which just makes it all seem that more authentic because you took the time to do that. Having the Tag Titles on the Backlash card is good, and even better considering there are two sets of them so hopefully the Raw ones will make it onto the card too. Having Carlito and Primo pull something like that off at the end is good purely because it will help them get over with the fans. Reminds me when the Tag Team Champions were sometimes the most over guys on the roster many year ago. Good segment to really give a midcard feud a chance for some decent air time.

Simple interview with R-Truth, a little generic again but it did its job. Would have preferred to hear from Shelton, personally

I liked this from Edge and Vickie, was a really well written segment and a good way to end their relationship for good. I'm a little sick after having to look back and replay the moments where Vickie and Big Show kissed Typical Edge putting the title first, you have his mentality just right, with no real care about anyone else other than himself. Big Show coming down to the ring was no surprise, but I didn't expect him to attack Edge straight away, showing just how much Vickie means to him. The Cena save was predictable after what we saw earlier with Cena and Edge. Honestly, this exact segment would have been the perfect way to open the show.

Seemed a bit too soon after what happened before for these four to reappear, maybe the US Title Match could have came here, but the crowd would have been buzzed after the previous segment so it makes sense. I drew a lot of similarities between this match and Bourne/Kozlov, as both have very similar dynamics, but it was good to make this match look more even with Primo getting in some decent offence and making the Tag champions not look weak. Jackson winning after a distraction was booking 101, but the thought of the steps going into Carlito's knees seemed a bit cringe.

Finish that Hardy feud off in style.

I was truly shocked to see this result for the United States Title Match; R-Truth was the man I was certain WOULD NOT win, but you've gone a route many people would not have done, so I look forward to seeing what you do with him as champion because it seems like he's going to have a lot of people coming after him given all of the ECW guys that were drafted onto Smackdown. MVP heel turn, maybe? He is a much, much better heel than face so I wouldn't blame you for going down that road.


Big main event here, and good to see Matt Hardy being able to hang with the big boys again for the second week in a row. Jeff getting involved was predictable but also the right thing to do following the previous events of the show. Cena pinning Big Show hopefully leaves Show out of the title picture as really shouldn't be there... ever. This match shows a more fresh feeling main event, even though there is Cena, Edge and Show, you have guys like the Hardys, possibly now MVP, as well as Christian all ready to climb up the card so the future looks bright in that sense. No awards for predicting what was going to happen after the match. "Vintage" Edge with the post-match Spear on Cena, and leaves on a great note for next week, nice ending to the show.

Good show man, everything was advanced well and a couple of matches announced for Backlash; that card is stacking up pretty well and there will be a couple more big matches to come I am sure. Only gripe about this show really was the ordering of some of the segments but other than that a very solid Smackdown. You've got me looking forward to the next one, keep going dude

Re: Calum Presents: WWE 2009 - The Fear That's In Your Eyes

WWE Monday Night RAW - 20th April, 2009

It’s not the usual opening to RAW as we have come to know; instead we are backstage in a pitch black room. The room begins to light up, but not in the colour you would expect, instead it lights up in an eerie red colour and we see The Big Red Machine, Kane sitting on a steel chair, in the centre of the room. Nothing is around him, only the Red Monster and his chair in the small, creepy room. Kane has his head in his hands and you can hear his audible heavy breathing. The camera closes in on Kane’s head, and he lifts his skull up to face the camera. Kane breathes heavily at the camera, before grabbing the camera and pulling it closer to his face. He sneers heavily, before telling everybody that CM Punk made a mistake when he knocked him off the ladder at WrestleMania, he said that CM Punk unleashed the wrath of Kane, he unleashed the demon inside of him. The demon that has been dormant for years, the demon that since he took his mask off has been hiding, but now it is coming back, he says the demon has been awoken, and it’s first victim is CM Punk. Kane then starts to laugh manically at the camera before his face turns to a scowl and then he throws the camera to the ground. The Big Red Monster then walks out of the show and the lights start to dim as we fade to black.

There is no RAW opening video package; instead we cut straight into the quiet arena, where the fans are stunned by what they have just seen on the tron, as are the commentators who struggle to say anything. The cameras cut to the announce table where Michael Cole is the first to speak, he simply says “wow” and not much else. The King takes over and he gets more words out, asking what that was all about and if this so-called demon is awakened, then it’s not CM Punk that should be worried, it should be all of us. The RAW theme plays over the PA system and then the announcer start to get in to full flow as they begin hyping up the card for the evening, including a World Tag Team Championship match, the Intercontinental Champion Rey Mysterio faces Drew McIntyre and Randy Orton faces Goldust in singles action.

It’s time for the first match of the night and it’s the World Tag Team Championships which are on the line in the opening bout. “Bringin’ Da Hood T U” blares out over the speakers which brings the crowd to life as they cheer the contenders. JTG and Shad run out to the stage before high fiving and walking down to the ring, JTG is more animated while his partner is all business. Once the duo are in the ring they wait for the champions, “Came To Play/Break The Walls Down Remix” plays over the speakers and the fans begin to boo loudly as the current World Tag Team Champions, The Miz and Chris Jericho walk out wearing the titles around their waists. The two of them walk down to the ring, smirks on their faces, obviously taking Cryme Tyme lightly and once they are in the ring the referee calls for the bell.

This was a solid tag team match following the usual WWE formula but we did see some good action including some near falls before the ending to the match finally came. It’s The Miz with JTG in the corner, Miz is punching J’ in the skull over and over, before pulling him out and planting him with a body slam. The Miz looks down at J’ with a scowl on his face before walking over to Shad and talking trash to him. This distraction allows JTG to get to his feet and gains an advantage when he connects with a drop kick! The two men lie on the mat motionless, and the referee begins to count. After a few seconds, The Miz starts to gain some life, and begins to crawl over to Jericho, but then J’ starts to show signs of life and does the same. Miz tags in Jericho first who tries to stop JTG from tagging Shad but he doesn’t make it and Shad comes in hot. Gaspard knocks Jericho down with a clothesline, and then another and then another. The last blow causes Jericho too lie down for a couple of seconds, and Shad takes the time to get the fans involved screaming out to them. Once Chris gets up, he is floored again by a running big boot! Shad covers but The Miz breaks it up and tries to keep Shad down by clubbing him in the back, but he uses his power to get to his feet and push Miz away. And then John Morrison appears to loud cheers from the fans, he runs down the ramp and pulls the ropes down and The Miz tumbles over the ropes. The referee turns around and sees Morrison standing over The Miz with a smile on his face, Shad does the same but then turns around into a Codebreaker! Jericho goes for the cover but the referee is distracted by telling Morrison to leave the area. Morrison backs away but the referee doesn’t keep his eyes on him, Jericho stands up and pulls the referee around and tells him that they have won if he counted. Chris turns around right into JTG who connects with The Shout Out! J’ then pulls Shad over Jericho and the referee begins to count... and we have new World Tag Team Champions!!

The fans are going crazy as the referee is handed the World Tag Team Championships, and then he hands it too JTG who kneels down beside Shad who sat up right, and he doesn’t really know what has happened. J’ hands him the belt and then he finally realizes what has happened, a grin appears on Shad face and his partner helps him to his feet. The two hug each other before climbing the ropes and holding the tag team titles aloft for everyone to see. The cameras then cut to Miz on the outside who is staring at Cryme Tyme holding his tag team championship; everyone can tell The Miz is fuming. He turns round to face Morrison who is at the top of the ramp, smiling at the chaos he has created. Jericho rolls out of the ring and kneels on the mat while staring up at Morrison as well. The commentators rave about Cryme Tyme as the two men pound their chests to the crowd, finally winning the tag team championships after all these years.


Monday Night RAW returns and we are shown a replay of the events before the commercial break. Once the video package ends, we end up backstage where Cryme Tyme, JTG and Shad are talking with Kelly Kelly, Mickie James and Melina. The three divas are congratulating Cryme Tyme on their title win, but the three of them stop and look to the right, J’ and Shad do the same. The cameras then show us who Cryme Tyme were looking at, it’s Drew McIntyre and Nigel McGuiness, William Regal’s new cohorts. The two teams go face to face before Drew tells Shad that they should treasure every moment with the championships before Nigel informs JTG that very, very soon they will be coming for the titles. The two then tell them to enjoy their celebration tonight because it won’t be long before the championships are ripped away from them. The two Brit’s leave while Cryme Tyme looks on, shaking their heads before going back to the divas.

We head back into the main arena where “Game” blares out, drawing a mega-sized reaction from the crowd. The WWE Champion, Triple H walks out from the back in his usual tights and with a Triple H T-shirt, The Game walks down the ramp, looking all business, he climbs onto the apron before stepping into the ring and being handed a microphone. The Cerebral Assassin begins by telling everybody that after last week we all know that Randy Orton will be his opponent at Backlash, but this is no ordinary match, this is a No Holds Barred match. The Game continues and tells everyone that Randy Orton made this personal after he assaulted his family and that was the biggest mistake Orton has ever made in his life. Triple H looks at the WWE Championship which is draped across his shoulder; he informs us that this feud is about more than the WWE Championship. This is personal. He says that the WWE Championship is the biggest prize in this business, and he won’t lose it at Backlash, but he also says that the best thing about Backlash won’t be retaining the championship, the best thing about Backlash will be inflicting as much pain on Orton as humanely possible. For all Orton has done to his family, Randy can expect the same pain that they got, but only ten times worse, The Game continues by saying that No Holds Barred means that Orton has got no way out, he tells Orton that nobody can help him. Triple H goes to continue but then “New Day” plays over the PA system causing the fans to boo fiercely. The WWE Champion turns to face the stage to see Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase standing with microphones in their hands. Once the boos die down, Rhodes begins to speak and he tells Triple H that Randy Orton doesn’t need any help, he doesn’t need any way out, he tells The Game that when Orton faces him at Backlash, it will be Triple H who will be trying to find a way out. While Cody was speaking, he and Ted were walking down the ramp and by now they are at the foot of the ring. DiBiase takes the speaking responsibilities now as he tells Triple H that even though Randy doesn’t need any help, it couldn’t hurt to ensure that you are not at one hundred percent for Backlash. DiBiase and Rhodes drop their microphones and jog to opposite sides of the ring, the WWE Champion drops his belt and the microphone; The Game keeps checking each side of the ring to see who dares enter first and it’s Cody Rhodes. He and Triple H go toe to toe, with Triple H eventually taking the advantage but then DiBiase gets involved and clubs him from behind. Triple drops to one knee and DiBiase knees him in the chest, knocking him down. The Game tries to get up but DiBiase jumps on top and throws right hands at HHH, Rhodes joins him by stomping on The Game. But then suddenly “SOS” plays to a massive reaction, the fans go wild as Kofi Kingston makes a beeline for the ring... he slides in ducks a clothesline from Rhodes and hits a running flying forearm smash which hits DiBiase with huge force to a great cheer. DiBiase rolls out of the ring while Kingston knocks Rhodes down with another flying forearm smash. Kingston then tries to execute the Boom Drop on Rhodes but DiBiase pulls him out of the ring and Legacy back up the ramp while Kingston checks on the game. Kingston and Trips look at Legacy as they back away, smiling. But then suddenly Ric Flair appears on the stage telling everybody to calm down and instructs Legacy to continue walking up the ramp and not get back in the ring. He says that the reason for that is they will need their strength for later tonight – as they will face Triple H and Kofi Kingston in a tag team match for our main event.

All that remains... is the Backlash.


When we return from the commercials, we get a replay of what went down before the commercial break and the commentators talk for a moment about the big tag team match made for the main event. Before they send us backstage where Josh Matthews is waiting, microphone in hand. He has that stupid grin on his face while introducing his guest – the WWE Intercontinental Champion, Rey Mysterio. The crowd give Rey a good sized pop as the camera pans out to see Mysterio standing next to Josh with the I.C Championship draped over his shoulder and a purple and white mask on. Mysterio acknowledges the chhers with a nod before Matthews asks his question, he asks Rey how he feels about what happened last week when he was attacked by William Regal’s cohorts – Drew McIntyre and Nigel McGuiness. Rey says that the beating he took was tough, but he is still standing, which draws a nice cheer from the fans. Mysterio then tells us that he believes Regal isn’t man enough to face him on his own, and needed back up to get the job done, and that’s what he done when he got the Scotsman and Englishman. Matthews then asks Rey how he feels about facing one of the men tonight, Drew McIntyre. Rey puts over how tough it will be, using last week as an example, but last week will serve as motivation and if Regal or McGuiness gets involved then they will be on the receiving end of a 619. The interview wraps up as we head to the main arena.

In the ring, Goldust stands as his music fades out, the wacky Superstar getting some respectful cheers from the crowd when his name is read aloud. The arena goes silent as Goldust waits besides the ropes, patentily waiting for his opponent. The fans erupt with a barrage of boos as “Voices” plays out over the PA speakers. Randy Orton walks out with a Viper T-shirt on, The Apex Predator walks slowly down the ramp, not taking his eyes off his opponent. He climbs up the steel steps, before stepping into the ring and ascends the turnbuckle. Orton surveys the arena before stepping down and turning to face Goldust.

The referee calls for the bell and the two men begin to circle the ring, the two then lock up in the centre with Orton then putting Goldust in a side headlock. Orton wrenches it but Goldust backs him into the ropes and uses the momentum to send him running, Orton reverses it however and sends Goldust running towards the ropes. He rebounds straight into a running knee to the gut, Orton follows through making Goldust flip in mid air and land on his back while Orton is at the rope surveying the crowd. He turns back to Goldust, who is getting up, The Viper grabs Goldust and plants him with that patented backbreaker of his and goes for the cover, but ‘Dust kicks out at two. Orton then stomps methodically round his opponents body, working on each body part one by one, taking his time and making the fans boo. After Orton is done, he stares out into the crowd and cocks his head getting a crazy look in his eye. He turns around, diving to the ground and begins pounding the mat, and when Goldust stands up he is planted by the RKO and Randy Orton picks up the victory.

The referee goes to raise The Vipers hand but he pulls his arm away from the ref and walks to the ropes. He begins to leave but gets half way out of the ring before staring back at Goldust. He looks down at the apron for a second before stepping back into the ring. The Apex Predator stays at the ropes, lowering his body in a coiled position before unleashing and sprinting at Goldust... punting him in the skull! The crowd are booing insanely as Orton stands with his back to the fallen Goldust, looking into the stands with a wide eyed look. Referees and medical staff come down to the ring, Orton turns around and stands above ‘Dust, the refs tell him to back off and he does so, smiling as he leaves the ring, sending a message to Triple H. Orton backs up the ramp as the medics put GOldust on stretcher.


When we return from the commercials, we are treated to a replay of the events which transpired before the break. The replay ends and the crowd are very quiet as Goldust is being wheeled away from the ring and up the ramp. From there, we head backstage where Santino Marella and Rosa Mendes are sitting on a couch in a room somewhere in the back. The two are rather close together until the WWE Women’s Champion, Beth Phoenix walks into the room and the two of them shoot up. Beth hasn’t seen them though because she is rambling to herself about Mickie James getting involved last week in her business. She turns to Santino and Rosa to complain to them, Marella whistles in comedic fashion while Rosa just stares at The Glamazon. Phoenix continues her tirade against Mickie, telling Marella and Rosa that she is going to teach her a lesson their match. Phoenix walks away while Marella and Mendes sit back down and get back to being all cosy... until Phoenix walks back in again and grabs her Women’s Championship as the two shoot up again, Beth gives them a suspicious look before turning and heading to the arena.

It’s time for the SmackDown Rebound and we begin the night with Edge and Vickie verbally sparring before The Big Show comes out and attacks Edge. Edge is then saved by John Cena, we get a brief clip of Edge talking to Cena earlier in the night about trust and being partners. But then we are in the main event, Edge and Cena have just won the match against Show and Matt Hardy but then Cena is speared by Edge to close the show!

After the SmackDown Rebound, we return to RAW and we are in the main arena where “Glamazon” is blaring out to a little bit of heat, but nothing earth shattering. Beth Phoenix walks out from behind the curtain with the WWE Women’s Championship over her shoulder, but she isn’t with Santino and Rosa, the two must still be backstage getting freaky (). Phoenix is all business and makes the ring in record time, she climbs onto the top turnbuckle, via the outside, and flips down backwards. The Women’s Champion hands her belt to the referee and waits for her opponent. “Obsession” plays over the PA system getting a similar sized pop to the heat that Beth got, Mickie James, the Diva who saved Melina from a beating at the hands of Phoenix last week hops out from the back and continues her hopping down the ramp before sliding into the ring.

Surprisingly for a divas match, this was quite a good match with the two women involved. Both Divas can go in the ring, and it showed in the ring as the two women competed in a back and forth match, both getting a chance to shine. Numerous near falls happened in this match but the telling pin fall came when Beth had just planted Mickie with a front face buster but Mickie managed to kick out. Beth then picked Mickie up and whipped her into the ropes, she rebounded and ducked a clothesline, Mickie pushed Beth towards the ropes and then pulls her back rolling her up, but Beth rolls through... but then Mickie rolls through again and this time the referee counts the winning pin fall.

And the reaction again isn’t good from Beth, she stands up quickly and kicks the ropes as Mickie has her hand raised by the referee. She turns and rushes at her conquerer and knocks her down from behind. The crowd boo pretty loudly as Beth turns her over and pummels her pretty little face with punch after punch until... Melina makes a beeline for the ring, she slides into it and spears Phoenix off of Mickie. A cat fight ensues between Phoenix and Melina until Phoenix turns Melina on her back, knocks her arms away from her head and begins to punch her repeatedly now. Phoenix then stands up and stares down at Melina who is holding her face, Beth runs her hand through her hair and turns round... right into a Mick Kick! Down goes Phoenix! Mickie walks over her and helps Melina to her feet, the two divas then look down at Phoenix before leaving the ring. The cameras close in on Phoenix as she looks knocked out before we head backstage.

Backstage, Josh Matthews is waiting eagerly to introduce us to his guest for the evening. It is none other than the man teaming with Triple H later tonight when the two of them take on Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase. Matthews asks Kingston how he feels about coming so close to getting a WWE Championship shot last week, Kingston tells Josh that he was indeed, very close, but it is a learning experience, one mistake cost him the shot and that was taking his eyes of Orton for a split second. He then says that he knows he can defeat Orton since he did just that two weeks ago, and tonight he will team with Triple H, the WWE Champion to take on Rhodes and DiBiase. Kingston wraps the interview up by telling Matthews that he is out there to impress the RAW GM tonight, and after Backlash – he will get his chance at the WWE Championship.


Returning from the commercial break, we hear “Booyaka 619” blaring over the PA system to a good sized reaction. The current Intercontinental Champion Rey Mysterio walks out from the back and walks to either side of the ramp and sets off his pyro. Mysterio then walks down the ramp, taking a few seconds to talk to a couple of fans wearing replica masks, he then climbs into the ring and ascends the turnbuckle. After Mysterio drops down to the mat, “Regality” plays over the PA system to a good sized amount of heat as William Regal, Drew McIntyre and Nigel McGuiness walk out from the back. Regal is wearing a suit, Nigel is wearing his trunks but with a English Terror T-shirt and Drew is dressed to compete in his blue and white trunks without a shirt. The three of them walk halfway down the ramp before we notice that Regal has a microphone.

Regal begins his promo by stating that Rey Mysterio’s time with the WWE Intercontinental Championship is running out, he tells Rey to soak in the time that he has with the belt because soon enough – the championship will be Regal’s. William then introduces Rey’s opponent as The Sinister Scotsman, Drew McIntyre, the man who will defeat Rey tonight and prove that Rey does not deserve the Intercontinental Championship. Regal continues by telling Rey that he brings shame to that championship, and thus when Regal wins it, he will bring honour and glory to the championship, before bringing the European Championship back. Rey shakes his head as Regal’s music continues to play and the trio begin to walk down the ramp.

Rey had to keep his wits about him in this match as Regal and McGuiness were watching on from the outside, the two men shouted encouragement to Drew as he took the advantage early on by side stepping an on-coming Mysterio and then planted him with a back neckbreaker. From here, Drew kept inflicting more pain, as he bullied Rey around the ring, taking him from corner to corner. In each corner, Drew hit Rey with a combination of punches, kicks and elbows, and at one point even got a near fall after planting him with a suplex from the second rope. Regal was disappointed with the referee and made his feelings known. Drew got back on the offensive, locking in a half Boston Crab. Eventually, Rey managed to drag his body to the bottom rope, the referee pulled Drew off him and admonished him for keeping a hold of Rey. Meanwhile, behind the referees back, Nigel ran around the ring and kicked Rey in the head as he was resting his skull on the bottom rope. Drew then covered Rey but only got a two count. Regal then climbed onto the apron, and distracted the referee as Nigel climbed into the ring, Nigel picked Rey up and held him for Drew – McIntyre ran at them attempting a big boot but Mysterio ducked and McIntyre smacked McGuiness in the face. Drew looked shocked as McGuiness rolled out of the ring, Mysterio then rolled Drew up but only got a two count. Both men got up quickly, but Mysterio tripped Drew up and he landed on the second rope. Rey then hit the 619, knocking Drew into the middle of the ring, he then attempted to springboard, but Regal grabbed onto his leg, stopping him as Nigel was distracted the referee. Rey then kicked Regal away with his free foot, but this distraction allowed Drew to get up and knock Rey off the apron into an Regal, and as Rey fell into Regal, William smacked him in the face with a fist but a fist with a pair of brass knuckles on them, and he then rolled Rey into the ring and Drew covered him, getting the three count!

Drew rolls off Rey and has his hand raised by the referee as Regal grabs the Intercontinental Championship from ringside, while McGuiness slides into the ring and slaps Drew on the back while the two celebrate, no hard feelings about the boot to the face. After a few seconds, Regal joins the duo, stands in the middle of them and raises the Intercontinental Championship above the group’s head. Regal smirks down at Mysterio, before placing the belt across his stomach, and before leaving stomps his head as a parting gift. And then the fearsome trio walk up the ramp, to a chorus of boos, leaving Mysterio and his I.C Championship lying in the ring.


Back from the commercials, Ric Flair is sitting in his office, with some fine looking women at either side of him, suited and booted as he rifles through some papers. He is interrupted then, and the fans boo extremely loudly as Chris Jericho and The Miz barge into the room, both fuming. Flair gets up from his desk quickly and walks round to face the two angry men. Miz begins the round of complaints as he angrily asks Flair if he saw what happened earlier, Ric is about to respond but Miz cuts him off by saying it was rhetorical, he knows damn well that Flair saw it, and he probably enjoyed it. Jericho continues the verbal blasting at Flair by calling him a parasitic hypocrite for taking pleasure in the fact that they have lost the World Tag Team Championships, and he finishes his part by telling Flair that they demand a rematch. Flair smirks a little, he says he’ll get to the Tag Team Championships in a bit, but right now he wants to speak about what happened last week. Flair says that Jericho and Miz laid their hands on the RAW General Manager, and anyone with a brain wouldn’t do that, but now they have so they have to be punished. So, because of that they will not receive a rematch for the World Tag Team Championships. Miz and Jericho are irate, they step closer to Flair, but Ric doesn’t step back, standing face to face(s) with the two men, as the two women have worried explanations on their faces. Miz asks Flair that what stops them from doing it again, then Jericho says that this time they won’t leave him standing and he will have to resign as GM.

The crowd then cheer loudly as Shawn Michaels suddenly shows up, he walks past Miz and Jericho and stands next to Flair, Miz and Jericho take a step back. Shawn asks if there is a problem there, Jericho replies by saying that there is, but he and Miz will deal with the problem later, pointing at Ric, Miz then says that they haven’t forgotten about Michaels. The two men leave, leaving Flair and Michaels in the room with the women. Flair thanks Michaels for his help last week, and for just now, although Ric says he could’ve handled them. Michaels bats Ric on the back and says of course he could, Shawn starts to leave but Ric pulls him back by the arm. The RAW GM tells him that he shouldn’t be angry or upset by losing to Undertaker at WrestleMania, he tells Michaels that he’s heard from guys that you’ve been thinking about it a lot but some of the greatest Superstars of all time have went up against ‘Taker and none have managed to beat him. Shawn nods and tells Ric that he hears him, before leaving he looks at the girls and looks back at Ric before saying nothing’s changed, the two share a laugh before Michaels leaves. Ric turns to the girls, and sits between them on the couch as we fade away to the main arena.

Where “Get Down On Your Knees” blares out over the PA system and the All American American Jack Swagger saunters out from the back. He walks down the ramp, shouting former ECW Champion, and future WWE Champion, before doing a couple of push-ups at the foot of the ramp. He continues his journey to the ring and wraps it up as he slides in and waits for his opponent. Then, “This Fire Burns” blares out over the PA System, Mr Money in the Bank walks down the ramp to a good amount of cheers, he climbs into the ring and the referee starts the bell. But as soon as the two start to circle... bang! Fire suddenly shoots up from the stage, and Kane appears on the ramp. Punk turns to face Kane, and tells him to come down to the ring, Swagger takes total advantage from this and rolls Punk up, he grabs a hold of the tights and gets the quick three count!

Swagger quickly slides out of the ring, and backs up the ramp as Punk kneels on the mat, shaking his head, looking up at Kane. Kane starts to walk down to the ring, he gets behind Swagger before hitting him with a Uppercut to the throat on his way to the ring. Kane stands before the ring, staring up at Punk. Punk is in a crouched position telling Kane to get in the ring, Kane pulls himself up and climbs over the ropes. Punk rushes at Kane and its on, he clubs Kane over and over, but Kane pushes him away, Punk rebounds of the ropes and connects witha low drop kick, taking the big man down to one knee. Punk grabs his briefcase, sprints at Kane, but Kane grabs Punk by the throat, and he drops the briefcase. Kane tells Punk that he should never have awoken the demonic presence residing in him, he then hoists him up but Punk reverses and plants Kane with a DDT on the Money in the Bank briefcase. Punk slides away from Kane and sits in the corner, wide eyed, and running his hands through his hair, the fans are cheering as we head to a commercial break.


The fans begin to boo immensely as Randy Orton is shown in his locker room, drinking a bottle of water. Rhodes and DiBiase are sat in chairs, chatting amongst themselves. Orton interrupts them and the two stand up to listen to him, Orton tells Ted and Cody that he appreciates what they did earlier tonight, and he wants them to continue their good work by defeating Triple H and Kofi Kingston tonight. He says that he punted Goldust in the head, because he was sending a message to Triple H, at Backlash he will become WWE Champion.

Back in the arena, Dolph Ziggler is already in the ring as his music begins to die out. Little to no reaction for Ziggles, though. Then, “Sexy Boy” plays over the PA system, and the fans go wild as Shawn Michaels dances out from the back. He walks down the ramp, making it half way before setting of his pyrotechnics by kneeling on the mat. Ziggler paces from side to side, while Michaels climbs into the ring and poses for the crowd. Michaels gives his accessories to the referee who hands them to ringside and gets the match underway. Ziggler walks to the centre of the ring, and extends his hand to Michaels, he says “Hi, My Name is Dolph Ziggler” with a smile on his face. Michaels looks out the crowd, and surprisingly shakes his hand, but Ziggler pulls his hand away at the last moment, runs it through is hair before flicking his hands at Michaels. Shawn looks out to the crowd, while Ziggler extends his neck and laughs at Michaels, but is then planted with Sweet Chin Music for the three count!

Michaels stands up immediately, and has the referee raise his hand in the air while Ziggler rolls out of the ring. Suddenly, “Break The Walls Down” plays over the speakers and out comes Chris Jericho. Jericho walks slowly down the ramp, in wrestling attire while Michaels stares at him, he knows he’s in for a fight and gets into a fighting stance. When suddenly, he is blindsided from behind by Jericho’s protégé The Miz. Michaels falls to the ground and Miz dives on top of him and begins hitting him over and over. Jericho slides into the ring, and locks in the Walls of Jericho! Miz lies on the mat, screaming profanities in Michaels face as Jericho wrenches the submission hold. The fans suddenly start cheering as John Morrison sprints down the ramp, Miz tells Jericho and the two get the hell out of there. Morrison checks on Michaels before staring at the two men and pointing at them, saying this isn’t over.


Back from the commercial break we hear “New Day” as Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase, Legacy walk down the ramp to huge boos, no Randy Orton with them this time. Rhodes and DiBiase climb into the ring and hop on the spot, preparing for their opponent. “SOS” blares out over the PA system and the fans cheer loudly as Kofi Kingston hops out from behind the curtain, the popular star hits his pyrotechnics and continues down the ramp. He slides into the ring and keeps an eye on his opponents as DiBiase and Rhodes threaten to attack him. “Game” plays to a massive pop, a huge one, and Triple H, the WWE Champion begins to walk down the ramp. He walks around the ring, he climbs onto the apron and spits his water out before stepping into the ring.

Triple H starts the match for his team against Cody Rhodes, and The Game takes complete control in the early going, using his experience to keep Rhodes down. Triple H hits a number of his famous moves, getting some near falls before tagging in his partner. Kingston comes into the match ready for a fight, he takes the battle to Rhodes, connecting with some of his high-flying offense. But he didn’t see DiBiase get the blind tag when Rhodes was whipped to the ropes, DiBiase came in and nearly took Kingston’s head off with a clothesline. From there, Legacy were in complete control, using quick tags to keep each other fresh and on top. Eventually, Kingston managed to battle out and scamper across to The Game and get the hot tag. Triple H came in hot, taking the fight to Legacy, taking on both of them at the same time. The numbers started to take hold but then Kingston came in and took Rhodes over the top rope with him. That left Triple H and Rhodes in the ring, but then suddenly Randy Orton sprints down the ramp, sledgehammer in his hand! He slides into the ring and smashes it into HHH’s skull!

The referee calls for the bell, Kingston tries to get in the ring to help The Game but DiBiase grabs him and rams him into the steel steps. Orton climbs on top of The Game and pummels him with punch after punch. He tells DiBiase and Rhodes to hold up The Game, and then connects again with another sledgehammer blow. He instructs Rhodes to go get the WWE Championship, he hands it to Orton who holds it above his head, sending a message to the WWE Champion.
