TantruM Presents: WWE 2007 - Rejuvenating Nostalgia
Cobruh Presents: WWE 2007 - Rejuvenating Nostalgia

I advertised that this thread would be posted on December 1st, and it’s 2 AM on December 1st I just can’t wait any damn longer

This will be my second attempt at a Be The Booker project, my first one ending in January of 2011. I have been reading some of the older BTB’s recently and picking up some different styles of writing, layouts, schedules and rosters. I’ve been a BTB lurker, and I’m not afraid to say it! I am going to try and stick with this, even if it goes on hiatus for a while because I seem to follow and like wrestling for a good 6 months to a year, but then get out of it around the time of No Way Out (in real life). We’ll see what happens, I’m just trying to have some fun by writing these shows. Here are some rosters to start it off along with some Pay Per View schedules. We’ll kick this BTB off write after WrestleMania 23, I’ll try to keep the results similar. I wasn’t too comfortable writing Benoit at this period because I’d have to have him killed unfortunately, I don’t want to have to do that so I just put Rey Mysterio in there as Unite States Champion, and he wasn’t injured. Also put Orton as MITB because quite simply I want to ;) I also took out ECW, I know most of you seem to like them in BTBs as a way to build young stars and create an alternative, but I just don’t remember much about the superstars we have on there and how they acted, their gimmicks, etc.

All of the rosters are tentative as well as the Pay Per View schedule, I’ll be checking and editing all the stuff that I missed in these next coming weeks. My writing style at first will be more of a recap type style because it’s the middle of hockey season so I have practice twice a week and then one game per week, plus I’m a student so I need to make that a priority. I will try to keep up with this as best as I can, and try and let you guys know if I’ll be taking a break or something of the sort. My writing style is based off of KOP’s thread, I love the way he recapped his matches for a while there so a big thank you to him and I loved reading his thread. I may try and move on to write some weekly shows in full, but for now I think it’ll just have to be the pay per views in full, if not all of them then some of them. I’ll be doing more full shows in February when hockey season is over. I’ll try to make or get some banners made for the thread as soon a possible, like I said before I haven’t had much time.

Thank you for reading and I hope that you guys enjoy this BTB.

re: TantruM Presents: WWE 2007 - Rejuvenating Nostalgia
Pre-Wrestlemania Notes/Information

With Wrestlemania hitting home with the WWE Universe and getting a "universally" good reception, The WWE feels as though they have succeeded with the project. Chairman Vince McMahon and many other member of World Wrestling Entertainment's management had high hopes for the 23rd installment of Wrestlemania, and it exceeded those expectations. Faculty is really surprised at how superstars performed, and say that they were doing better than they had done at last years Wrestlemania, which didn't seem possible.

Previous to Wrestlemania, lots of action was taking place in the WWE such as The Undertaker winning the Royal Rumble, and Shawn Michaels earning his spot to take on John Cena. With the unfortunate failed drug test of superstar Chris Benoit keeping him out of the WWE for quite some time, and the defecating injury to Triple H's leg back in 2006, The WWE was forced to do some improvisation. The plan was that Triple H was to face John Cena in the main event of Wrestlemania 23, but due to his unfortunate injury they figured that there was no better replacement than his best friend himself, Shawn Michaels.

Mr. Kennedy was scheduled to win Money in the Bank but due to some off-screen confrontations and failing to show up for travel at scheduled times, he was somewhat pushed down. Randy Orton was a great filler to the spot, Edge was a considerable second place but Orton received the push due to Edge having something to do with Money in the Bank the past years.

Rey Mysterio/MVP was sort of built up to be a great match but Chris Benoit was earlier scheduled to be put in this match, but of course had the failure to meet WWE's policies keeping him off the worlds greatest stage.

In general news the WWE is at one of its highest points of rating in the past 5 years. Everything is going well and doing much better than expected with improvisations taking place more than they should have to.
The WWE has plenty of fresh and renewed feuds/rivalries planned to take place within the year of 2007 which they think should go over well with the fans.

World Wrestling Entertainment has also been in contact with a few former superstars from the 1990's and early 2000's and are trying to possibly come to terms to have them back in the business. The WWE feels that this may be the extra push that they need to shoot up in production.

SmackDown! seems to be the weak spot of the company right now with few main event superstars. The WWE Draft is coming up and that should solve the problem. Raw has too many main event superstars to handle and McMahon thinks that this may also solve another piece of the puzzle.

All in all the WWE is in a prime place right now, but Vince McMahon knows that you can always go higher. He says that he plans to make 2007 the best year that the company has ever seen, and he will not stop until he does just that.

Monday Night Raw PreviewApril 2nd, 2007
Nutter Center; Dayton, OH

Just 24 hours after the biggest event in sports entertainment shown in Detroit, Michigan, things look to pick up right where they left off: in complete and utter chaos. Last night's viewers definitely got what they payed for as we saw many matches that blew the top off of Ford Field. We witnessed the WWE Chairman getting bald-ified, a women's champion retaining her gold, a young and former world champion seizing an oppurtunity by snatching the briefcase guaranteeing a title match at any time, and the reign of an immaculate champion continuing it's legacy.

A day ago we saw Randy Orton, the youngest world champion in the history of sports entertainment, gain something that he has never tasted before, the Money in the Bank briefcase. Randy Orton was looking surprisingly average going into the match and seemed to captivate the arena and possibly the world after RKOing Mr. Kennedy off the ladder and then climbing up to retrieve the contract. Will Orton cash in the briefcase tonight? What will he have to say about his performance? Is Randy slowly becoming the face of the company?

Last night we also saw Melina defeat Ashley to retain her prized Women's Championship in a match that Ashley should have won if the referee were watching more carefully. Melina's somewhat dirty play paid off, but how will Ashley react to the loss last night here on Raw? Will Ashley get her revenge?

WWE Chairman Vincent McMahon was embarrassed to his full potential last night at the greatest spectacle of the year as we saw him get shaved by Stone Cold Steve Austin, Donald Trump, and of course Bobby Lashley. Armando Estrada feels as though Umaga had failed to do his duty last night, and is looking to make it up to the chairman on tonight's Raw. Will Vince McMahon take the apology and accept what has happened to him? What's next in store for Bobby Lashley?

Last but not least we had the WWE Championship Match which rest assured did not disappoint. John Cena and Shawn Michaels duked it out until they just couldn't wrestle any longer. John Cena retained his championship and kept his reign of dominance continuing as WWE Champion. Shawn Michaels says he has something to say about last night's match, and he is not happy. What will Michaels have to say? Who is Cena's next opponent in his quest to successfully defend his WWE title?

After nearly breaking themselves in half last night The Hardyz will be in action in a tag team contest against Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch. Will they be able to sustain last night's brutal occurrences?

To find out what happens to all of these exciting happenings here in the WWE, tune in tonight, April 2nd, 2007 @ 9/8c only on The USA Network!

re: TantruM Presents: WWE 2007 - Rejuvenating Nostalgia
Ah yes, the first show. It was extremely fun to make this show and I hope that you guys like it. Haven't had any feedback in the thread itself but I was repped and been chatting on MSN and I know that I have some readers ;). The section seems a bit slow and I hope that changes within the coming season/year.

It's a great honor to be back into the swing of things, I don't have as many shows as I thought I'd have done by now but with hockey keeping me held up it's a bit difficult to find time to write. This one is in a short recap format that is similar to KOP's, I really liked the way his was set up. I hope to write in full in the future. I am open to any criticism or feedback, I'd love to produce what you guys want to see! But enough blabber, here is the show. ~EnJOY!


Monday Night RawApril 2nd, 2007
Nutter Center; Dayton, OH

Just 24 hours after the greatest spectacle in sports entertainment, Wrestlemania 23, Raw kicks off highlighting the event. It shows Randy Orton defeating 7 competitors from both Raw and Smackdown in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match, being once again in the spotlight. It shows the poor millionaire head of one Mr. McMahon being shaved by Donald Trump, Bobby Lashley, and Stone Cold Steve Austin. Melina defeating Ashley was also briefly visited, but last and certainly not least, John Cena defeating the Heartbreak Kid after an intense and classic match. The crowd goes absolutely berserk as we enter the Nutter Center for the first RAW of the new wrestling season, Pyro and the titantron of the per-usual Monday Night Raw show. We are then greeted by J.R. and Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler who go over last night’s events and also remind us Backlash is coming!

The “Wrestlemania Fallout” edition of Monday Night Raw this week opens with quite an appearance of, still, WWE Champion John Cena. Cena comes to the ring and simply states that “The Champ is still here”, and talks about how Michaels was a worthy opponent but he just couldn’t pull it out. This gets a mixed reaction from the crowd of course. This invokes Michaels down to the ring, and he talks about how last night’s match wasn’t about a feud, a rivalry, two brothers colliding, or anything of the sort. It was simply about winning, which he wasn’t able to do. Michaels says he wasn’t happy with how last night’s match had ended, and he’d like a rematch. Cena goes on to say that Michaels shouldn’t get a rematch as he already faced Cena and lost. Now Orton is summoned to the ring, to a sea of booing and jeering. Orton proclaims that last night, both of them had one opponent, in a regular match. He stated they just had to beat each other fair and square in a normal match, and that he on the other hand had to beat out 7 other competitors in a ladder match. He says that if anything he should be in the title hunt and he isn’t being recognized widely enough for his talent. Jonathan Coachman walks out on stage abruptly and interrupts, saying that he doesn’t like all this arguing. He says that Orton isn’t wrong and neither is Michaels, and he proposes a proposition; tonight, it will be Randy Orton vs. Shawn Michaels to see who will face John Cena for his prestigious WWE Championship at Backlash. Cena nods his head and smiles as he agrees, Michaels and Orton stare each other down as we fade to black, inducing a commercial break.

Back from the break now we see a jobbing women’s match between Melina and Torrie Wilson, with Ashley doing commentary. The match didn’t so much focus on the in ring competition as it did Ashley’s commentary as it would seem. Ashley talks about how last night she was screwed over and deserves a rematch. She says that she wants retribution. Inside the ring you see Melina hit her famed inverted DDT, which would for sure end the match with her as the victor. She rolls up for the pin but Ashley comes in and stomps Melina on the back of the head, breaking the pinfall and calling for a disqualification. Torrie now goes up the ramp, holding her head as Ashley keeps stomping and stomping, pummeling Melina to a breaking point. Melina lies there seemingly lifeless as Ashley goes and gets the Women’s Title and holds it over Melina’s distraught body.

We pan out from that scene to see backstage a bald Mr. McMahon walking through a long hallway filled with equipment and staff, some trying to hold in a laugh, and some just staring at the odd “doo-rag” on the head of what we all know now as a no-haired chairman due to last night’s events. The chairman’s discomfort is palpable, but is now turning into anger. He is met by a running Armando Estrada coming from off camera, yelling and pleading that the chairman doesn’t get mad or punish him or Umaga and that is wasn’t their fault. He goes on for a few seconds with no breaks as McMahon stands in sorrow and agony. McMahon softly and calmly tells Estrada he doesn’t want to talk to him or anyone at this time, but that he will have revenge on Bobby Lashley. You finish with McMahon walking into his office alone and shutting the door. We then go out to J.R and Jerry Lawler who say that that isn’t the usual Chairman we’re all used to.

We are then moved to a shot of Todd Grisham who says he is standing by with “The Champ” John Cena, who looks quite happy as always. The interview of course is to ask Cena about what he thinks about the match tonight between The Viper and The Heartbreak Kid. Cena says he’s looking forward to it and he isn’t too worried. He states that he will in fact be watching the match tonight, as you could suspect. The Champ also says he’s beaten HBK before on the world’s biggest stage, he can do it again. He claims that he’s got Orton all figured out, and he knows exactly how to play Orton. He finishes the interview off by saying he hopes it’s a fair contest, and let the best man win. Before he can leave Orton walks in and says that he WILL be winning this match, he has a few tricks up his sleeve, and they try and 1 up each-other with their words as Orton finishes the promo with the line “You’ll see Cena, you’ll see” as he turns and walks off as Cena looks off in that direction with a curious and confused expression.

We return to the ring to see the previously announced tag team bout between the World Tag Team Champions, The Hardyz, Matt and Jeff, and The Redneck Wrecking Crew, Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch. The Hardyz would manage to pull out the win even though the night before at Wrestlemania they were both nearly torn in half. In the closing seconds of the match and in a last resort effort by the Redneck Wrecking Crew, Lance Cade tries to cheat his way to victory. Murdoch was down for the count after Matt Hardy hit a devastating clothesline and was going for the pin, Lance Cade entered the ring. Jeff scrambled across the ring and tripped up Cade with a leaping two footed kick to the face, and went to the top rope as fast as he could, jumped and nailed a Swanton Bomb! Matt then kneed Murdoch in the sternum and hit a twist of fate to end it after pinning the fallen redneck. Matt and Jeff were given their belts back and held them high as Murdoch and Cade mercifully made their way up the entrance ramp, holding their stomachs, necks, and all other targeted body parts as we head to a commercial.

Back from the break, a short little video is shown to hype the Backlash ticket sales, showing last year’s Backlash moments including the insane triple threat match put on by Edge, Cena, and Triple H. It says that you can’t escape the Backlash, no matter how hard you try. It then has many superstars wrenching in pain, really putting in perspective how bad things can hurt in the industry, especially at a pay per view right after Wrestlemania.

Vince McMahon’s music hits as the crowd goes crazy because of his predicament. His head shaved bald he is quite distraught, looking around the arena with a face of sadness. He gets on the mic only to say that he is quite sad and upset about last night’s events, and that Umaga had quite simply let him down. He says he can’t rely on others to fight his battles for him and that he is going to have to handle this personally. He says that he needs to man up and take on Lashley man vs. man. He challenges Lashley to a match one versus one at Backlash. Lashley of course comes out and says that he accepts the challenge, and begins to walk off. Vince says not so fast, and that he has a match that starts right now! Lashley is not happy with the news, but is luckily dressed for the occasion. McMahon orders him to get down to the ring immediately, which he promptly does although unwillingly. McMahon goes back by Lawler and J.R. and sits in a chair at ringside to see what he has to go up against at Backlash. Lashley waits for the music to boom so he can tell who his opponent is, and it’s THE GREAT KHALI. Lashley looks on in somewhat of horror as McMahon leans back and puts his hands on the back of his head, smiling kicking his feet out and crossing them, looking as relaxed as ever. J.R. now goes on about how diabolical McMahon is by setting Lashley up to be ended before he is begun for Backlash.

Bobby Lashley put up a great fight, but he couldn’t finish it off against the monstrous “man”, if you can even call him one, The Great Khali. Lashley was doing fine and dandy in the beginning but after being chopped in the head a few times he was getting woozy. We all know that Khali’s wrestling skills aren’t really… well… wrestling skills; he’s more of a fighter. Khali does however manage to finish Bobby Lashley off with a gigantic and thunderous choke slam, and then only needing to cover with his boot on Lashley’s chest for the victory. McMahon is now clapping at ringside and he hops into the ring and stands tall over the seemingly physically lost Bobby Lashley. McMahon smiles and sticks his hands in his pockets with the greatest smile on his face.

We are taken backstage now to a split screen of Shawn Michaels and Randy Orton walking down hallways getting set for their match here in our main event. Both superstars look confident, tough, and ready to go as we head to a commercial break.

Back from the break we had a stunner of a main event; Shawn Michaels vs. Randy Orton would be very hard to be a disappointment as it would seem both competitors really wanted that WWE Championship belt around their waist. The match had a very interesting turnout to say the least, with an unpredictable ending to the first show of the new “wrestling year” being a day after Wrestlemania. In the closing seconds of the match, Shawn Michaels had Orton down as he tuned up the van for his patented Sweet Chin Music. Orton stood up and turned but ducked under the kick and ran out of the ring towards the entrance ramp. Orton looked at the stage and started to wave his hand towards the ring. From the stage, Edge comes out of the back! J.R. and The King talk about the fact that he was almost broken in half last night by Jeff Hardy’s leap off of the ladder and they are astonished he is here. Orton and Edge embrace and walk down to the ring as Shawn Michaels looks down at them in confusion. After all, they had just had a match together last night against each-other for the Money in the Bank briefcase, Orton of course winning. Orton slides into the ring as HBK and The Viper go at it for a little while longer as Edge sits at ringside. We then get a split-screen showing John Cena looking on backstage now standing with his arms in the air, seeming confused as well. The split-screen ends as Michaels and Orton go at it for a bit longer, but HBK gets The Legend Killer down once more as he tunes up the band! Shawn goes for it again, but Orton ducks out of the way, grabbing the referee! Michaels hits Sweet Chin Music… But it’s on the referee as Orton throws him in front as a human shield… The referee of course falls, down and out. The Heartbreak Kid turns around only to be RKO’d by Orton! Orton goes for the cover! 1…2…3…4… The referee is still unconscious! Orton now frustrated drops Michael’s leg and sits up, releasing the pin. The Legend Killer gets up, grabbing his head in agony as he seems to have an idea. He backs into the corner as if he is going for “The Punt”, which would surely put Michaels on the shelf for a while! Orton waits for HBK to reach his knees… He sprints at him… BUT EDGE SPEARS ORTON?!? Orton’s down as HBK looks at Edge in amazement! The referee is now to his knees, Edge now out of the ring walking backwards up the stage to see what unfolds. The fans are now having mixed reactions about this as they are confused as well! They love to see Orton lose, but they certainly do not like Edge. Anyways, Michaels gets the referee as he goes for the cover! 1…2…3! Shawn Michaels has done it! The Heart Break Kid is the new number one contender for the WWE Championship! Michaels stands using the ropes for balance as he looks up at Edge in confusion, Edge looking back with a dastardly, vile look on his face, still seeming fixated on Orton. J.R. and Jerry Lawler freak out screaming and yelling in confusion for what just took place as we fade to black.

Melina defeated Torrie Wilson via disqualification
The Hardyz defeated The Redneck Wrecking Crew via pinfall
The Great Khali defeated Bobby Lashley via pinfall

re: TantruM Presents: WWE 2007 - Rejuvenating Nostalgia
Last weeks show was a blast to write, and I hope you guys enjoyed it as much as I did. Hopefully I won't be the only one posting in the thread throughout it's lifespan as I have been told by some that they'd drop some feedback sooner or later. I have been repped on the show letting me know I have some viewers which I greatly appreciate.

SmackDown never really seemed to have the intensity that Raw did, and I think that's kind of ridiculous. One of my goals in this BTB is to get SmackDown out of being "The B Show" and hopefully it will be equally as watchable as Raw. I plan to have the WWE Draft the night after Backlash which should shake things up a bit and hopefully help with this.

Anyways, here is your preview for Friday Night's showing.


Friday Night SmackDown! Preview - April 6th, 2007

Memorial Coliseum; Fort Wayne, IN

The aftermath edition of SmackDown looks to be an exciting show as last weekend at WrestleMania we saw many things including Kane managing to defeat The Great Khali in a stunning match up, a new United States champion was also crowned in Rey Mysterio defeating MVP to take home the gold, and how could we forget The Undertaker keeping the streak alive and becoming World Heavyweight Champion after defeating Batista. The classic competition we saw this past weekend should be incredibly exposed once more here tonight as we see what unfolds.

Just 6 days ago we witnessed Kane defeat The Great Khali which is no easy task. Kane will speak tonight on SmackDown about the victory, and he seems to be very happy with it. The Big Red Machine says that he is at the top of the pedestal of World Wrestling Entertainment, and that is where he plans to stay. What's next in store for Kane? Can anyone defeat him?

It's no secret that MVP loved his United States Championship, and after it being revoked from his grasps you know he'll be quick to get it back. Mysterio winning the belt went over well with the fans, but can his reign withstand the golden needs of Montel Vontavious Porter? Tonight on SmackDown! MVP will be in action, and will he be able to regain his focus after losing the title last week?

We most certainly cannot have forgotten about the World Heavyweight Championship match that was put on last night by Batista and The Undertaker, could we? The two men nearly broke themselves in half over being known as World Heavyweight Champion, but was it really worth it? There is one man that would answer yes to that question, and that is The Undertaker. He grasps the world title for the first time in what seemed like years. Batista held the title for quite some time and is seemingly accustomed to having it around his waist, will he get it back? When will The Animal receive his rematch?

Find out what happens in all of these confrontations this Friday Night by tuning into The CW at 8/7c!

Confirmed for SmackDown!
MVP will be in action
Batista will speak

re: TantruM Presents: WWE 2007 - Rejuvenating Nostalgia
JAM's Review

It was good that you ran down the events of Wrestlemania, giving us a reminder. I feel this should always be done because sometimes we forget and it's just basic stuff to add in. The whole promo between Cena, HBK, and Orton was pretty decent. Not really much to say since it was recapped but it was a good opening segment. HBK and Orton are two of my favorites so the main event has already captured my attention and that's all you really wanna do with the opening. But Orton already has the MITB briefcase so I sense that HBK may win this one, no idea really, just a guess.

Failing the boss isn't exactly what you wanna do so it'll be interesting to see what he does with Umaga and AAE since I don't think they'll be off lightly. But then again, he can go on a rampage and make Lashley's life a living hell. The women's match I wasn't too interested in. I think Ashley is better suited as a valet instead of a wrestler but I'll reserve my judgment on that. It kinda felt too early to have Cena back on camera. We could've covered this while he was on commentary but then again, this show isn't in full. Having a match straight away felt kinda long, should've had a commercial break. Hoping the tag team division heats up.

Not really sure McMahon would've faced Lashley one-on-one so I'm guessing that there will be some funny business when the PPV comes. I think it was the wrong choice for Khali to beat Lashley here. It would've been great to have seen McMahon's plans thwarted tonight only to have him come back with someone better. I sure hope Khali isn't his new cronie. I sense that a group will be doing McMahon's bidding, hoping for actually.

I was pretty confused as to why Edge came out and why Orton welcomed him. Then having Cena's reaction there just didn't really fit in. LOL @ "tuning up the van" pretty sure it's "tuning up the band." But anyway, the main event ending just confused me since we don't know why Orton was so welcoming of Edge to get a ringside view of his match. I just don't get it. I think you were going for the "two birds with one stone" approach but it just didn't really work here.

Overall, it was a decent episode. The first episodes are always the hardest to come out with so congrats on passing that. The show felt kind of short and no, it's not because it was in recap. It just felt like the show lasted an hour. Not much really went on in terms of matches and segments as well. So I think next time you really wanna emphasize some huge match or a big segment. I know you did that with the WWE Title situation but there could've been more. Some punctuation errors as well but nothing too bad. Hope the review wasn't too critical. Keep going on! (Y)

re: TantruM Presents: WWE 2007 - Rejuvenating Nostalgia
Thank you so much for the feedback jamjam22, I'll definitely have to hit you back on the BTB you're coming out with, assuming you will eventually settle on a project :p

But never the less, I'd like to get out this tentative schedule for the next couple of weeks and also announce that after the upcoming pay per view, Backlash, we will have a 3 hour special event for Raw, The WWE Draft! I need this draft badly as SmackDown isn't giving me too much to work with. The draft will be a great way of picking things up.

Anyways, here is the schedule for the next couple of weeks.

WWE Friday Night SmackDown! - April 6th, 2007 - Recap

WWE Monday Night Raw - April 9th, 2007 - Recap

WWE Friday Night SmackDown! - April 13th, 2007 - Recap

WWE Monday Night Raw - April 16th, 2007 - Recap

WWE Friday Night SmackDown! - April 20th, 2007 - Recap

WWE Monday Night Raw - April 23rd, 2007 - Recap

WWE Friday Night SmackDown - April 27th, 2007 - Recap

WWE Backlash - April 29th, 2007 - Full

WWE Monday Night Raw *3 Hour Special; WWE Draft* - April 30th, 2007 - Full

I am still deciding whether I should from then on do the shows in full or maybe just Raw in full and Smackdown in recap, we'll see but this is how it looks right now. We'll also be having the King of the Ring tournament not too long from now as well so we'll have to see where that will fit in to this hopefully large puzzle. I'm not as far along as I'd like to be, haven't worked on Backlash a single second yet, and I'm only halfway through the 4/9/07 episode of Raw, been busy. I really do hope you guys are having fun reading, I know I'm having a fantastic time writing. :) I'll see you guys when I decide to put up SmackDown!

~Okay so this is me posting SmackDown! but it isn't fully ready yet I may edit it later so sorry if it looks kind of weird at places or matches aren't added to cards and stuff. I'll edit it when I wake up tomorrow but I really wanted to just put it up today. Thank you guys!


Friday Night SmackDown! – April 6th, 2007
Memorial Coliseum; Fort Wayne, IN

The first edition of SmackDown! since Wrestlemania kicks off just as Raw did earlier this week, highlighting the spectacle’s main points of interest. It shows Kane defeating The Great Khali which hadn’t been done in such a way before, we see Rey Mysterio defeat MVP for the first time to claim the United States Championship, but most importantly we see The Undertaker continue the streak by narrowly beating out The Animal, Batista, for the World Heavyweight Championship in an unforgettable confrontation. We enter the Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne for the first SmackDown! since ‘mania, and boy is it electric. The camera pans around the crowd as pyro is also set off, showing fans cheering, some with signs, mainly focused on Wrestlemania’s World Heavyweight Championship match, saying “R.I.P Batista”, “The Streak Lives”, and “The Animal has been leashed”. We are then taken to Michael Cole and John Bradshaw Layfield who introduce themselves and talk a bit about last night’s matches, and especially how pissed they believe Batista is after losing his coveted title that he loved like a newborn child.

The aftermath edition of SmackDown! is kicked off with none other than “The Animal” himself, Dave Batista, walking down to the ring in jeans, one of his superstar t-shirts, sneakers, and of course, sunglasses. The former World Heavyweight Champion goes on to say how he is fully dressed, but feels naked. He doesn’t feel complete without his championship belt either on his shoulder, in his hands, or around his waist. Batista says that he will stop at nothing to get his title back, and he wants his rematch, and he wants it TONIGHT. This brings out General Manager Theodore Long who says that the championship match that Batista wants will happen, and it in fact WILL happen tonight! The crowd goes absolutely ape shit as they know that in the main event of tonight’s show they will see two of the biggest behemoths in the WWE today duke it out once more with the World Heavyweight Championship on the line. Batista smiles happily as we fade to a commercial.

Back from the break and in tonight’s first bout we take a look at two superstars that were in last week’s Money in the Bank ladder match. King Booker takes on Mr. Kennedy in a singles match, with Booker claiming the win rather cleanly with a book end. Kennedy of course wasn’t too happy with the loss since he had been losing rather rapidly the past few weeks and at Wrestlemania. Is Ken Kennedy in a slump, or has he just lost it? Booker celebrates dramatically as he is just happy to have a win, especially over Mr. Kennedy whom wasn’t his favorite coming out of MITB.

We now go backstage where Josh Mathews is standing by with Rey Mysterio. In the interview Rey seems really upbeat and excited, and looks genuinely happy to be the United States Champion. He says that it was a privilege to get to perform in front of thousands of WWE fans in attendance and not to forget the WWE universe watching at home. The interview is interrupted by MVP who says he wants the United States title back under his grasp. Montel somewhat bullies Mysterio which you could tell Rey didn’t like at all. MVP finishes the segment by claiming that he will get the United States Championship back, and Rey better believe it. He then walks away by plowing his shoulder and arm into Mysterio’s in a somewhat high-school-type bullying manner with a smirk bigger than Big Show.

We go back to the ring as we see Kane come out from backstage to his normal entrance, turnbuckle pyro and all, and says that his win at Wrestlemania really proved something. It proved that he was not only the biggest and baddest competitor in the WWE, but it proved that he could beat anyone. After all, he did take down The Great Khali, a gigantic beast standing over 7 feet tall and over 300 pounds. He says that he is in the prime of his life right now and he’s feeling better than ever, to sum it up. He says that nobody in the WWE is worthy enough to have the privilege of facing him. Mid-speech, CM Punk’s music starts playing as he comes out on stage. Punk basically says that he has a match scheduled with Kane right now, and he is quite offended Kane would say such things because Punk claims he can kick Kane’s monstrous ass, which gets a huge pop from the crowd. This outrages Kane of course, but CM Punk runs down the ramp and slides into the ring, getting right at Kane without even removing his shirt, the referee calls for the bell to start that match even though it was basically already underway.

CM Punk and Kane went at it for a respectable, yet not too long, amount of time before CM Punk actually lived up to his smack talk. Kane was on the top rope going for his “vintage” (as Michael Cole would have to point out at some point) diving clothesline, when Punk managed to roll out of the ring, run around one corner towards the announce tables and run and slide back in. Punk was greeted with a clothesline in which CM Punk ducked under, turned around and lifted Kane up and nailed him with the Go To Sleep! 1, 2, 3, easy as that Kane is defeated by the straight edge superstar. Punk scrambles out of the ring, black hair flowing as the crowd goes nuts for the Chicago Made Punk. Kane uses the ropes nearest to the stage to sort of pull himself to his knees as he looks at Punk, breathing heavily, death and fire in his eyes, you can tell he wants revenge.

After the second match of the evening we cut backstage to see MVP walking down the hallway, stretching his arms and shrugging his shoulders intensely as he prepares for his match which will be right after the break. His mindset must be a little off now that he has lost his United States Championship to “the biggest little man” Rey Mysterio.

During/Towards the end of the commercial another promo featuring tickets for WWE Backlash are aired, showing moments from previous Backlashes over the years. WWE also reminds you Backlash can only be watched on WWE Pay-Per-View.

Back from the break we see MVP take on Jimmy Wang Yang in a jobbing matchup as Rey Mysterio does commentary. Mysterio talks more about the feeling he had when he won the Unite States Title and how it bettered his career that much for winning it at Wrestlemania for his first time. MVP however hit his famous Playmaker to end it. After the match however he would stand on the turnbuckles looking down at Mysterio, pointing at the U.S. Title which was on Rey’s shoulder, saying that it would soon be his. When will MVP get his rematch?

We now cut to Cole and Layfield for their thoughts on what had happened just then, and that MVP looks strong still, and the match last Sunday at Wrestlemania didn’t slow him down a bit. Michael Cole and JBL also somewhat talk about how backlash is coming up, and also give us a “Raw Rebound” segment just showing us some things happening on RAW including the main event last week where Edge turned on his former partner, in which we still don’t know why. John Bradshaw Layfield also reminds everyone to tune in this Monday at 9/8c on the USA Network.

Backstage we see Batista getting ready for his match later on tonight. Dave laces up his boots and then starts doing a stretch type movement with his legs, trying to prepare himself to face The Deadman for the 2nd time in less than a week. We then head to a commercial, don’t you just hate those?

We now have a tag team bout scheduled as Paul London & Brian Kendrick take on Jamie Noble and Shannon Moore. The match was mildly exciting, not blockbuster or anything. Jamie Noble and Shannon Moore pull out the victory via pinfall as Noble covered London. The match was only a few minutes long and the crowd seemed to be behind London and Kendrick more than Moore and Noble. There was a commercial break in the middle of the match.

We now go to Michael Cole and JBL who once more go over last Sunday, but this time it is only the World Heavyweight Championship match between Batista and Undertaker. They go over how there will be a rematch tonight, and talk mainly about how Batista says he will do anything in his power to get the title back. As they talk, they head to the ring where Justin Roberts introduces the “WOOOOORLLLDD HEAVVVYWEIGHTTTT CHAAAMPIONSHIPPPPP” match which pumps the crowd into mayhem.

The World Heavyweight Championship match did not disappoint, it was extremely entertaining and was right up there with the Wrestlemania match. Unlike RAW, nothing too crazy happened in this main event. In the closing seconds Batista had Undertaker down after repeatedly punching him in the forehead, and he went to the corner as The Phenom got up … And Batista hit a thunderous spear heard around the arena! Batista went for the cover but couldn’t get it as The Undertaker showed his true resiliency. Batista looked up in frustration and went over to the ropes and started shaking them violently, stomping as he always does. He turned around and Undertaker sat up, the crowd now going crazy. Batista ran over to get him but Undertaker reaches up and grabbed Dave by the throat … He got up off the mat … He goes for the choke slam … Batista kicks Undertaker in the stomach while being lifted in the air for a choke slam! Batista threw Taker’s head between his legs and put his thumbs in the air for a Batista Bomb … Undertaker wrapped his arms around the legs of The Animal, and raised him up and back dropped him onto his chest! Undertaker turned around as Dave got up slowly and Undertaker kicked him in the sternum, getting him ready for a Tombstone Piledriver … Undertaker lifted Batista up … He stumbled over closer to the ropes … HE HIT IT! He dropped him! Undertaker went for the pin, 1 … 2 … Batista put his foot on the ropes … THE REFEREE DIDN’T SEE IT … 3! UNDERTAKER STOLE IT! The Undertaker pulled out the victory inadvertently “cheating” and Batista was still down. The Undertaker received his belt and Dave just lied against the ropes. Undertaker started to move up the ramp looking back, I don’t even think he knew Batista had his feet on the ropes. Dave now pulls himself up on the turnbuckles, now sitting on the canvas murmuring and looking as angry as ever, sweat pouring and spit slewing. The show ends with Undertaker exiting the arena into the darkness as we fade to black and the WWE logo is shown.

Sorry, this preview is moderately short but it'll have to suffice.

I can't believe the year is almost over, it seems like just yesterday I had my old thread up but that was about 2 years ago already. I'm so glad to be booking again, it just feels great to be a part of this again. I can't wait to get this thread really rolling and onto the pay per view, I've never written a pay per view before and it looks to be really exciting especially with the card I'm planning.

This will probably be my last post in here for the year, family is coming over tomorrow to stay for Christmas and then I'm heading north to Michigan for a while to see some friends and party in the new year. Won't be able to write and I'm falling a tad behind, this episode of Raw isn't even complete yet.

I hope you all have a fantastic holidays and I'll see you soon ;)


Monday Night Raw PreviewApril 9th, 2007
XL Center; Hartford, CT

Lots of crude rivalries were bestowed upon us last week in the fallout edition of Raw where we witnessed what aftermath would take effect from Wrestlemania.
Last week we witnessed destruction of superstars intentions to become supreme, and revenge laid on by the man in charge. We saw a shocking twist at the end of the show that left the WWE universe in complete shock.

On last weeks episode of Raw we saw Matt and Jeff Hardy defeat Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch in what was a valiant match of strength and desire. The two have held their championship for a while and nobody seems to be able to stop them, will Matt and Jeff's time start to run out or will they continue to dominate the tag team universe?

Mr. McMahon let Umaga off the leash and put Bobby Lashley in an unlikely predicament before he takes him on himself at Backlash. Bobby Lashley will be in action tonight once again, will he prevail this time or will McMahon's evil inentions continue?

Randy Orton's plans of taking on John Cena at Backlash were demolished when his plans with Edge went awry. Randy Orton will speak tonight on Raw, and you can count on one thing - he's going to want answers. Why would Edge do this to his former partner? Find out tonight on Raw.

Shawn Michaels won the #1 contenders match last week - even if it was a cheap win, but that wasn't at fault of the Heartbreak Kid. Shawn will now face John Cena at this months pay per view for the WWE Championship. What buildup will be added to the legacy of Shawn Michaels vs. John Cena this week?

To find out what happens to all of these exciting happenings here in the WWE, tune in tonight, April 2nd, 2007 @ 9/8c only on The USA Network!

Confirmed for Raw
Bobby Lashley will be in action
Randy Orton will speak

JAM's Review

I’m not really a fan of when a former champion cashes in his world title rematch on the first show after the PPV because they usually lose and it’s predictable. However, when these things happen, there is usually something big that goes down so this is what I’m hoping for. I like the content of the promo even if it wasn’t in full. It was a pretty good recap of what Batista had to say. Not a bad opening, pretty standard stuff.

MVP and Mysterio are some pretty big stars so them feuding over the US Title can only be a good thing. Not really much to say on it really since nothing has really happened yet. Punk should be pushed to the moon right now. Hope we see more of this Kane/Punk feud since it can actually be a really good one.

A quick tag match where you didn’t actually announce a winner? I think you need to double check your work man. But anyway, it’s time for the main event now. Well you can pencil in ‘Taker vs. Batista for the next PPV right now because of the ending of this match. Not sure how I feel about this really since they’re both pretty much faces right now. I think one of them will eventually need to turn heel if you continue on with this.

Overall, the show seemed a little short. You could’ve done more with this show to be honest. All this show really did was advance the World Title situation while the others just felt like filler. I do think the US Title situation will be interesting once it really gets going. But yeah, slow episode here bro. A lot more could’ve been done. We didn’t even see the crusierweights. You always wanna make every episode an important one, so yeah. Just some notes to improve on the next show.

Thank you for some more feedback, I really appreciate it. I'd just like to say that I did announce a winner of that match it says that Shannon Moore and Jamie Noble pulled out the victory. I completely forgot about the cruiserweights but I didn't really have any time since I already had five matches. I really do appreciate the criticism and I do take notes on what you say and what anyone will say should more people start feedbacking, so I appreciate it.

I'd just like to let everyone know that these shows are short, yes. I am trying to make these short so I can get to Backlash as quick as I can and then things will get interesting and everything will be in full. I'm just trying to kick off the thread and get it going with these recapped shows. Thank you very much for reading and have a happy holidays.
