San Diego California, RIMAC Arena
NWF Saturday Night Warzone
The show opens to a recap of Punishment in MSG and Don West introduces us with Matt Striker and their new commentary partner Raven.
-Women's Locker room-
Right here tonight the full fall out from Punishment, tag team action, cruiserweight action, the Television champion, Chris Jericho and a the new women's division from Lanny Poffo.
Lanny Poffo walks back and forth in front of the women's line up. The line up being Isis, Sarita, Rosita, Daffney, Beth Phoenix, Cherry Bomb, Hamada, Cheerleader Melissa, and Awesome Kong at the end. Just then Allison Danger walks in and Poffo tells her to line up.
Isis and Sarita make eyes at each other and Rosita steps between them.
Well Ladies..and..ladies here we are. You have all been selected to build a new brand of women's wrestling. Some of you have left other places unceremoniously, but we here at the NWF have bigger plans for all of you. The Women's title soon on the line along with the Ms.NWF title for one for one of you lucky gals!
Just then Nick Mondo walks in and has his hand over his eyes.
This is exciting already! Next week Sarita you and Isis can settle your issues, Beth you got Cherry. The rest of you will relax until then, have fun ladies!
Nick my boy, you can remove your hand.
Look Lanny, Mr. Poffo sir we need to talk about my match-
To the ring we go and Shelton Benjamin is lazily walking out to a boo as Johnny Gargano is making his debut.
Say no more, to my office or whatever they gave me we go, have fun ladies, and try not to kill anyone until next week 'kay?
Shelton Benjamin Vs "Pretty Boy" Johnny Gargano
Shelton takes Johnny lightly early on which leads to him being taken advantage of as Gargano steps up and lays a beatdown on Benjamin. Johnny goes for a Boston crab but Shelton gets out and hits a superkick to the ribs, then a DDT. He brushes off everyone booing him and goes for a pin but only a one count. Shelton keeps pummeling him and tries to go for a leg lock, but Gargano reverses it and kicks his knees out. Johnny then hits the Baby Ace Crusher and goes for a pin but only two.
Benjamin gets angry now and starts attacking wildly but Johnny kicks him off and lands the Enzuigiri and follows up with the Lawn Dart throw to the corner. Shelton rolls out and gets back in and hits a takedown, followed by a flurry of punches. Johnny gets out and goes for a Reverse STO, but Shelton hits the Paydirt and gets the pinfall.
Your Winner: The World's Greatest Backstabber Shelton Benjamin
Benjamin walks out not caring about the match itself and leaves. Johnny gets an applause and leaves too. Just backstage then we see a locker room door that reads "Chris Jericho."
We come back and a countdown leading to "Y2J" hits the screen, pyro and out comes Chris Jericho. The crowd does a wild pop and he does a arms out pose. He's wearing a jacket combining the lights and his old shiny jackets. Chris grabs a mic and steps in the ring.
-Chris Jericho has a plan-
He's cut off by M-Dogg 20's music. M-Dogg comes out, bandaged side and all.
Ladies, gentlemen and assclowns alike, I am Y-2-Juhh
Chris, Chris. This isn't some attack on you, i wasn't sent here by anybody. This is a talk man to man. This is Matt Cross talking to Chris Jericho. You're a star in this business, hell you're one of the biggest damn stars to ever step in a squared circle, but you've crossed a line with me.
An "ooohhh" from the crowd.
I'm here for a reason Matt, just as you-
Jericho then smacks his mic away.
I worked my ass off for 13 years to be in the spotlight of this business, because i love this business! I didn't mind people like Jerry Lynn or Scott Steiner being here, because we're supposed to be a "family." A family huh? Well Chris I know why you're here. The truth is the powers that be didn't accept Chris Jericho on a contract. According to them, you were unreliable and looking into other endeavors outside of this business.
So you wanted to get in one way or another, so a fake ring name and a nice little disguise and suddenly everyone is hitting the mat and being dropped. Well Chris, if you wanted to get in, you shouldn't have been putting careers on the line for your own damn selfish game! Truth is you had high motives than just being the "golden boy" for the NWF huh Chris?
Matt grabs his mic.
You little wanna be prick! I invented everything you've ever done and you decide you want to talk to me like this? My NAME IS CHRIS JERICHO! NOW WHO THE HELL ARE YOU!?
His mic cuts off. He tries to talk but nothing works and police officers get in the ring and grab him. Chris grabs the other mic,
My name is Matt Cross, and I'm here to kick your ass. Forget the suspension, forget these bandages and forget the corporate screwjob that's run in the back by those two clowns Mr.-
Cross is escorted out as he's kicking at the police. The show quickly cuts off and hits commercial.
Who's paying bail this time Matt? You can take him away but i want this punk in February. You want to be the big man? I'll see you at Revenge wanna be.
Ace Steel and Petey's taken out.
We come back to a recap of Petey Williams being taken down and a doctor showing X-Ray's to Ace Steel. Steel holds his title on shoulder while listening as Scorpio Sky steps in.
I hope you realize you may have ended him for good. Yeah, it's your last chance, but was this needed? Ace I swear to God, when we step in the ring again, Only one of us is walking out. If you even try to do to me what you did to Petey, i'm ending your career like you did his, an eye for an eye.
The Cruiserweights locker room is shown after this.
You're right, only one of us will be walking out...
-Cruiserweight Locker room-
How much longer are we gonna sit around here with training wheels on?
Austin Creed shadowboxes in the back as Rocky Romero is putting his furry jacket and glasses on.
You just got here so settle down Ruckus.
I came to fight, not have a bunch of pigs with badges taking people down everytime they talk a bit of trash.
Alright Menace II Intelligence, you got beef? You wanna fight tonight? You got Red, so handle it out there.
Yeah and you got me Austin, so are you ready?
I was facing Jeff Jarrett last week when you were back here playing with your jacket and goofing around. So get serious or it's over tonight.
Ruckus then stands up and pushes his way through.
Why don't you act like a t-shirt and get clotheslined!...Yeah!....ha..
Ruckus Vs Amazing Red
Man, forget this i'm taking this anger out tonight, i'll see you in the ring ya red bastard.
Ruckus enters first to Cassidy's "I'm a Hustla" and Red comes out after. The bout is evenly matched, as Red uses agility and Ruckus is all brutality tonight. Ruckus takes out his left leg and goes to work on it. He hits a Foot DDT and then a one leg Boston crab. Red is near tap out but grabs the rope. Ruckus then hits a swinging neckbreaker and to the top rope. He goes for the 450 splash and Amazing rolls out of the way.
Ruckus is in pain but Red hurricaranas him and goes for a pin. Only two and Ruck kicks out and clotheslines him. Red then pushes him off and hits a brainbuster. A kick out at two once again, and Ruckus elbows him in the chin and lands the Hate Crime (sitout suplex slam) and a three count.
Your Winner: Ruckus
He then lights up a cigar and blows smoke into the camera as Red is laid out in the ring. Backstage we see Romero and Creed ready to go. Then a video package of Colt Cabana's trip.
-Colt Cabana's Redemption-
Colt, Haku, and Backlund are all doing Karoake of "All out of love."
I'M ALL OUT OF LOVE....I'M SO LOST WITHOUT YOU...
I KNOW YOU WERE RIGHT...BELIEVING FOR SO LONG!
I'M ALL OUT OF LOVE!
They all put their arms around each other and sing together.
WHAT AM I WITHOUT YOU!
Cabana, Haku, Backlund:
I CAN'T BE TOO LATE TO SAY I WAS SO WRONG!
The camera pans to Bobby the Brain on the right.
Oh...what are you thinking of...what are you thinking offf??
I'm thinking you three are morons.
Back to the ring as Austin Creed is waiting for Romero to come down.
..Back to training next week.
Rocky Romero Vs "Consequences" Austin Creed
Rocky enters the ring and the bout starts. Austin gets a lot of boxing hits in and Rocky is dazed. Romero then toe drops him and gets an ankle lock on. Creed then kicks his face and hits a Lou Thesz press, followed by punches. Austin then hits a Diving DDT off the ropes, springboard style and gets a two count.
Rocky throws him out of the ring then and hits a suicide dive to the outside. He follows up with a throw in to the ring and a Tiger suplex. Creed just barely kicks out and gets up to hit the MontiFisto and Rocky drops hard to the mat. Austin then gets a headlock Romero stands up out of it and rams him into the corner. He turns and does mock boxing punches on Austin and hits a jumping knee. He runs to hit another knee but Creed hits a knee to the face and gets a guillotine on and Rocky taps.
Your Winner: Austin Creed
Creed celebrates on his way to the back and Rocky throws his glasses.
Tyson Kidd has something to say...
After that great bout we have a few words from Punishment winner, Tyson Kidd at home.
Kidd is on the screen with a taped up body. The crowd boos his image.
At Punishment i defeated the hardcore legend himself. I paid the price, and Lynn paid the price. Turns out Jerry just might be done with this career he's embarked on, and here I am. I gave everything in that ring and i'm still the bad guy to all of you? You arrogant pieces of (censor) What else do you want me to do? Huh? I still get people telling me "Oh Jerry has him in the next one?" Maybe Jerry won't have a next one.
I was tired of the old stars of Wrestling taking my spot and I did something about and i gave you all a hell of a show and this is how i'm repaid. Of course i'm reduced to you tool bags in the audience, but I guess we'll see if i'll return the favor soon. I put my life on the line, maybe someone else's will be next time.
Backstage the Alliance of Darkness sit around as Mitchell tells them they have to step up tonight and Kevin nods as Judas follows him out the door.
-Tag Team Locker room-
It's only one loss man, no biggie. We got the next one!
The Bashams walk by and Riley laughs a bit.
Yeah, i'm sure we do...
Something funny boy?
No sir, Popeye sir.
In the background Sadistic Fame have heated up a bag of popcorn and Sydistiko is throwing some at Riley's head.
You two beat us before, but how about we take this to the ring again next week huh?
Let's see if you go 2 for 2 huh?
We'll go two for two, just worry about Team Bank$ until then huh?
We see you already met them.
They are all about to argue but Team Bank$ walk in and everyone gets quiet. Monty does a flinch at Riley and then Doug, but Doug doesn't move. Tarver pulls him back and they laugh. Now to the ring as the PR Powers, San Juan Kid and PR Flyer make their debut.
Hey can you guys speed this argument up a bit? I have a future waiting for me.
PR Powers Vs The Alliance of Darkness
San Juan and PR have a better amount of time as team and bring high flying to slow down Judas from taking advantage. They both hit a double STO, DDT, drop toe hold, and then attempt a double power bomb, but Kevin clotheslines them both down. Kevin then hits a Crucifix powerbomb on PR Flyer to the outside mat and Judas lands the over the shoulder face buster on San Juan Kid.
Kevin stomps on a defenseless PR Flyer, as Judas lands the Frog splash on the San Juan Kid. PR Flyer then does a springboard off the apron and heel kicks Kevin to the barricade. He runs for him but Kevin flips him over and into the crowd. Mesias looks outside at this and San Juan goes for a roll up but only two. PR Flyer then hits a backstabber off the barricade and onto Kevin. Thorn then struggles and gets up as the two exchange rights and lefts. Thorn tosses him into the steel steps after that. Next, Mesias waves for him and Thorn runs in and they hit a double powerbomb. Then Judas goes for the pin and gets a three count.
Your Winners: The Alliance of Darkness
James Mitchell puts their arms up and they walk to the back. Krimson then walks out just past them and nods. The PR Powers are applauded by the crowd as they walk out.
Krimson Vs Johnny Devine
Johnny does a dance out and nods to the crowd. He runs to the ring and Krimson catches him with a back body drop. Krimson gets a bull dog in and goes for a pin but only two. Johnny counters with a body slam and a elbow moonsault off the third rope. Krimson kicks out of the count and the two mat wrestle.
Krimson gets a piledriver to land and Johnny only barely kicks out. Krimson and Devine both exchange signatures and Irish whips until Johnny is caught in a Triangle choke. He just barely gets out and pulls off a Tarantula DDT on the ropes and gets a count of 2 and 1/2. He sets up a piledriver, but Krimson hits his own and gets a three count.
Your Winner: Krimson
He spits blood on Johnny and rolls out of the ring. He does a throat slice to the camera and tells Gargano he's coming for him and Matt Cross.
-The Television Champion-
Shad is in the ring and holding the TV title.
Then Shelton Benjamin walks out and grabs a mic.
I got a bit of talk after my match. I either get congratulations, or luck is on your side...People are saying I only beat the Great Muta because of Jushin Liger. If so, i'm a paper champion huh? Well this giant S.O.B ain't gonna settle for that.
I got a talk with the leaders in the back, and at Revenge I'll be defending this title. It doesn't matter who it is anyone can step up and the head giant in charge will take care of business.
Charlie Haas then stands behind him and police officers step between them. Lex Luger appears on screen.
hold up big boy, I just took down a star fresh off the indys everyone was pulling for so, you better have considered me.
Police take Haas and Benjamin to the back and commercial.
Calm down boys, at Revenge it's Benjamin Vs Haas. Shad you want to take on everybody, so i'll find a suitable contender for you. Next week Jay Bradley will step up and we'll see if he takes the reigns to get a shot at you and your title.
We come back to Antonio Bank$ with his managers and security guards in the ring. He holds up the New world heavyweight title of the National Wrestling Federation.
The recap plays along with Antonio yelling "Boom!" everytime he hits a move.
It feels good to be a champion. Last Sunday when the MSG was torn down by my talent and natural ability, I became the world heavyweight champion. I damn near broke my shoulder on a barricade and still won, please play the tape!
Rhyno then stands on the stage and the agents and managers crowd the ramp backing him away. He takes a mic after they surround the stage.
But now, we got more pressing issues. One month, Rhyno, the War machine...You Gored Matt Cross or M-Dogg or whatever through a steel gate! But you're gonna need more than the Gore to take me down. Rhyno you're a one trick pony that happened to get lucky, but at Revenge the Machine will break down and Chris Jericho, don't think i forgot about you.
You have your hands full, so stay alive while you can-
He Gores! an agent and fights off a bunch of managers. Around ten-twelve men are taken down by him alone as Antonio is calling for Monty and Tarver. They slide out to back him off and a man in a ski mask has a baseball bat and clocks Rhyno in the back and runs through the crowd and out the door as we see police officers chasing him down. Antonio and then stands over Rhyno holding the title just as the man hops into a car and drives away.
One month Antonio, Revenge is the keyword. I won't need a taser, i won't need bodyguards, steel chairs, guitars, a mask or a phony identity. There will be Gore and there will be pain, but all the money you got won't stop me. And now that i remember it, all your boys here. They aren't under contract, so they're fair game!
Backstage Nick Mondo is breathing heavy as he has another challenge. Jason Gory leaves the locker room and Nick heads to the stage.
"Sick" Nick Mondo Vs Jason Gory
Jason goes directly for his back but Mondo avoids this and goes for kicks and strikes on Gory. He roundhouse kicks and hits a standing leg drop and a two count. Jason trips him and hits a bunch of rights to his head. He follows up with a moonsault off the ropes and gets a two count. Nick crawls to the corner and Jason kicks his back, which results in a serious "ooohh..." from the crowd. Nick screams and tackles him in desperation.
Mondo keeps elbowing and punching him in the face as Jason is bleeding from his lip now. Nick gets the crowd pumped as he goes roundhouse and a jumping cutter. He goes for a pin, and only two. Jason then sidekicks his ribs and tosses him to the corner. He sets up a superplex and everyone is chanting "NO! NO!" Nick then pushes him off and goes for a elbow drop. He hits it and goes for the pin, but Gory kicks out and throws him out of the ring. Jason goes for a suicide dive and hits the barricade. Nick rolls in the ring and thinks to hit a dive but has second thoughts. Jason hops up and does a missile drop kick off the top rope, springboard style, and gets a three count.
Your Winner: Jason Gory
Nick is just glad he made it out in one piece. Then Lizmark and Thorn walk out escort him, but as that happens Marco Corleone hops over the barricade and has a wooden chair in hand. Jason turns and Marco swings for him and Gory hops out. He runs after the three and Raven grabs him from the commentary table and holds him back.
Corleone settles down and nods to Raven as the crowd cheers him on. In a recap of his last attack we go to Jay Bradley in a vignette.
Don't do it! You'll get your chance! Just not yet!
-"Lonesome" Jay Bradley preview-
Jay is holding a beer at the bar and looks wiped out.
Just before the main event we cut away to see Cliff Compton outside in the streets of Manhattan.
Chances like this come along rarely. I've thrown away a lot of things for all the wrong reasons. I've even been screwed out of a few things. But I've gone down the wrong roads, and I've gone down the right roads. This by far will be the only right thing I've done in along...long time. I'm not a golden boy, and i'm not the top choice, but I'll be in the NWF, and I'll finally come full circle.
-A Street wide challenge-
Back to the arena for our main event, Elijah and Jarrett have to team together against the new tag team champions, Billy Kidman and Jack Evans.
3000 miles away...Maybe we can't fight in the ring, but the streets are always open. Next week, Saturday Night Warzone, the Hammerstein Ballroom I stand outside of right now. Not too far away from the most famous arena in the world. MSG, right where I gave Bob Holly an ass kicking to remember, apparently i'm not done yet. A bully's job is just never done. It's not done if he's still moving.
Bobby boy, you won't stay down. You decided to cry like a (censor) to Lex Luger and DDP until they gave you a rematch at Revenge, how about this. Next week me and you, Manhattan, the streets. No rules, no cops, no guards, no pinfalls. Just one man left standing. I'll see ya then Bobby.
Jeff Jarrett and Elijah Burke Vs Picture Perfect
Picture Perfect enter first and hold up the belts as Elijah is telling Jeff that's saving out souls and Jarrett holds his guitar up saying he better have a doctor save him if they don't win. They go to the ring and the match starts.
Elijah is in first and Kidman uses veteran knowledge to gain control. He takes him off his feet and the two have a classic style, pure match until Burke chop blocks his leg and tags in Jeff. Double J then hits a stiff Russian leg sweep and Kidman's head snaps back. A one count and Jeff continues the beatdown. Billy tags in Jack and Evans springboards onto Jeff and gets in three standing sentons in a row.
He nods to the crowd and goes for another but Jeff puts his knees out. Jarrett grabs him and Irish whips him to Elijah. The two beat him down and Burke pulls his knee pads down. He hits the 4-up and Jarrett turns him around. the Elijah Express hits and he's not the legal man so no tag. Kidman rushes in and tackles Burke to the outside. Jarrett goes for a pin but Jack gets a foot on the rope.
Jeff wipes sweat off his head and sets up the Stroke, but Evans counters into a monkey flip and a standing leg drop. Outside Kidman and Elijah fight and Burke clotheslines him over the barricade. The two rumble in the crowd and Kidman is flipped onto the barricade and grabs his back in pain.
Elijah poses over him and rejoices with his followers in the crowd.
Jarrett is kicking out of a pin inside and Jack goes up top, but Jeff hits the rope and Evans is hurt in his little "jacks" if you will. Jarrett gets on the top rope and hits a Stroke from the turnbuckle to the mat. Kidman then slides into the ring but Elijah is outside chilling. Billy stops the pin and Evans is laid out. Burke then realizes the match is still on and runs in.
Jarrett then fights with Kidman and tosses him to the corner. Elijah grabs the guitar and Jeff holds Billy on the ropes. He knees the back of his head and Evans is still down and out. The ref is turned to Jeff and Elijah busts the guitar over Billy Kidman and Jeff hits another Stroke and gets a pinfall on Evans.
Your Winners: Jeff Jarrett and Elijah Burke
Jarrett and Burke both stand as strange allies tonight as the ref raises their hands in victory. Kidman is covered in guitar pieces as Evans is laid out. Burke lays the tag titles on them and Jeff does a strut mocking the champs. In the back we see Antonio leaving with Monty and Tarver, as they head to the limo Bank$ doesn't answer any questions and takes a seat in. Tarver and Brown get in after. Inside we see Antonio say "Alright back to the house."
Then the window is busted out with a lead pipe as Rhyno starts busting the windows out. Antonio is cursing and yelling as the car pulls off and Rhyno is breathing heavy and saying, "The bat didn't do the job....and nothing else will!" The show ends with the limo skidding out of the lot and into the street.
