NWF Saturday Night Warzone
The Hammerstein Ballroom, Manhattan New York
We open the show to the famous Hammerstein ballroom with the world heavyweight champion Antonio Bank$ walking out the ramp. He title on his waist and unbuttons his jacket to show it off. His managers and agents follow behind him as Michael Tarver and Monty Brown walk through to join Antonio shoulder to shoulder. Commentary takes over after.
It looks like the world champion has a message for us all. This could be about that explosive 6 man tag we have later tonight with a lot of our biggest stars involved.
This has to be big!
Antonio steps in the ring and grabs a mic. The crowd chants "You suck, you suck, you suck!" and he shakes his head.
Maybe he got new eye black and feels like telling us all.
Diamond Dallas Page then walks through the crowd and gets in the ring.
Calm down rednecks. Last week the so called contender for my title decided to bust out the windows of my limousine and action has yet to take place. Now now, Antonio ain't done, not only did this greasy haired son of a bitch bust out my windows, he attacked down my agents and managers. One of my boys had to get his ribs checked out because of this maniac and action isn't taken?
Bank$ cuts him off.
Calm down Antonio.
Hey hey, address me as the world champion, not Antonio.
Antonio claps sarcastically.
As I was saying....action will be taken by order of NWF President Lex Luger. The attack on your limo, was on our grounds, so now any attack on the property that we rent out or own will not tolerate any fighting of any sort. Take it elsewhere.
There'll be punishment on all of your bitch asses if you don't do something about this!
Antonio yells "good! good!"
Look! We've been given orders on how to handle the attacks to stop them from happening again!....
The champ flips and his team starts yelling at him. Page nods and walks out as Antonio grabs his arm and pulls him back. The crowd goes "oohh..." the two stare each other down and DDP tells him not to do it. Bank$ lets him go and says he's lucky. As Page walks through Brown and Tarver hold back everyone from attacking him as they escort the team to the back.
To avoid further attacks, your managers and agents are no longer allowed at ring side.
Antonio then gets out of the ring, and as he walks to the back Matt Striker makes a smart comment about him as Bank$ turns and pulls him out of the chair. Raven gets in the way and stops him.
We then head to the back in the cruiserweight locker room just before Ruckus has the first match of the night.
Yeah, you already learned enough at Punishment for now Striker.
-Cruiserweight locker room-
Ruckus is sitting on the bench about to smoke a cigar as Austin Creed asks if he can put it out.
Creed turns to say something but Nick Mondo walks in to talk.
You just trying to get on my bad side now huh?
Hey uh, Ruckus. Uh we're fighting tonight and I thought we should just go over something.
He elbows him on the way out and Jerry Lynn walks in and sets his bag down. Nick says hi and Jerry just waves. Back to the ring for the first bout.
What is it? Your screwed up back? Don't get in the ring if you can't handle it, I know what you been doing. Trying to get Poffo to go light on you, huh? We'll see if that little deal worked out huh dawg?
Ruckus Vs "Sick" Nick Mondo
Ruckus enters first and actually gets a decent reaction from the NY Crowd. Nick Mondo follows to the same reaction.
The match starts and Ruckus takes advantage by clotheslining Nick. He gives stiff shots to the chest and head as he stands up and taunts him. He picks up Nick and lands a few bionic elbows and Mondo is stumbling. Ruckus runs for him and Mondo flips him over the ropes and he smacks onto the floor. Ruckus is holding his elbow and he rolls back in.
Remember right after this bout we look back on the career of Petey Williams and an announcement from Jerry Lynn.
Nick follows up with a surprise trap style arm bar and Ruckus is yelling for help from the hold. He grabs the rope and gets out. Ruckus follows up with a DDT onto Sick Nick and starts stomping on his head. He picks up Nick and goes for a finisher but Nick reverses it into a suplex and a standing elbow drop. Ruckus crawls to the corner and Mondo jumps off the turnbuckle and onto his back. Dragging him by his feet, Nick puts on a camel clutch. Nick just might win but Ruckus lifts him up and it seems like he might drop him on his back, but Nick pushes off and takes a deep breath.
Ruckus then catches him with the Bank Roll neckbreaker. Mondo is lifeless and Ruckus hooks the leg for a pinfall victory.
Your Winner: Ruckus
We go to a break as Ruckus lights up and flicks it at Nick.
We come back and a montage of Petey Williams in the NWF, the indys, and borrowed clips from Lucha Libre USA all play. It ends with him holding up the cruiserweight title. Jerry Lynn then walks out.
Jerry Lynn has an announcement
Lynn grabs a mic and paces back and forth in the ring.
The Ballroom chants for Lynn.
Guys, it's been a long time.
Tyson walks out, still taped up with Isis and cuts him off.
You see guys, it's almost been too long. As of not too long ago I turned 50. I was set to retire when that happened, but the NWF gave me a call and I thought well "why not, one last glory run." and i had one of the best matches of my career with Tyson Kidd two weeks ago. I didn't win, but I didn't have to. What I would like to say today, is that as of now i'm retir-
No, no, no. You're not retiring! This isn't over yet. It's not over until I'm recognized as the best. I beat you in a dog collar match and ended up looking like this and here I am. Still without any recognition.
I...I can't do anything about that Kidd.
No, yes you can! One last match, me and you! Don't walk away from this Jerry, don't do it.
Kidd, it's over. I'm done, 50 years old is too old to keep this up. I had a helluva career, and i thank all of you for sticking with me. However, there's nothing I have left to prove.
Lynn shakes his head.
But I still have something to prove! You came here and took my spot so pass that torch on and give me my match!
He walks out past Tyson and the younger star keeps yelling for him to come back. Ace Steel then walks out past him and Jerry locks eyes with him. Steel holds up his title in his face and tells him to take a shot. Lynn walks away and Ace takes the ring.
I can't. I'm sorry Tyson. And to Petey, wherever you are get better okay buddy.
-The Career Killer himself-
Ace stands in the ring as Matt Striker takes a mic and joins him. Kidd is still outside as he just walks to the back and Isis follows.
The clips rolls and the crowd "ooohs" at the thud when he hits the DDT off the entrance.
Ace...at Punishment you did something very questionable in the eyes of everyone. You proved you had no limits on where you would go to win, when you did this.
How, how can you justify something like that?
Scorpio Sky then walks out from the back and gets in the ring. He gets nose to nose with Steel and they don't say a word.
Matt, I said this was my last chance and I obviously meant it. If Petey wasn't going to hit the concrete, someone else would. It wasn't me singling him out, it could've been anyone in the back, including "sympathy vote" Jerry Lynn.
Sky puts his hand up and stops him.
Sky, you're facing Steel tonight and-
Don't expect a match tonight Ace, expect karma. You took out my friend, now i'm taking you out. It's only Revenge huh?
Matt backs them up and Ace holds up his title as he walks out.
We still got some time to go boy, it's plenty of time before you stop breathing. So enjoy it now.
We come back to Sadistic Fame walking to the ring. Sydistiko is eating popcorn and The PR Powers have already ran to the ring.
Sadistic Fame Vs The PR Powers
Fast and exiting only begins to describe this bout. Kendrick starts the bout against PR Flyer and they fight back and forth until PR tags in San Juan and he springboard drop kicks him off the ropes and Sydistiko hops in. The four all fight until Hebner pulls them apart and Sydistko clotheslines PR Flyer over the top rope and Sydistiko does a suicide dive through the ropes and hits him. San Juan and Kendrick then fight it out.
Brian superkicks him in the face and hits a neckbreaker. He goes up top and tries to land a senton but the Kid puts his knees up and Kendrick clutches his hurt back. Outside Sydistiko goes for a jumping clothesline off the barricade and PR Flyer catches him and changes it into a DDT.
Inside Kendrick is hit by a hurricarana by the Kid and San Juan hits a moonsault off the ropes and gets the pinfall victory.
Your Winners: The PR Powers
They celebrate as Kendrick and Sydistiko are laid out. Backstage we see Isis and Kidd in the locker room. Tyson is still pissed as The Amazon tells him it'll be ok for now. She says the old man will get his turn and he says "Let's hope." As she walks out Rosita bumps into her and Isis tells her to watch it and Sarita steps up to her. The height difference is remarkable as we head back to the ring.
Isis The Amazon Vs "The Dark Angel" Sarita
The first ever women's match in the NWF. Isis enters first as she stands head above everyone and Sarita is next. The two stare each other down in the ring and the sound of the bell hits. The two fight but Sartia is over powered. Isis grabs her by the throat with both hands and slams her down. She rolls to the ropes and tackles her waist. Isis is stumbling back but Sarita is stopped again as the giant lady kicks her in the gut and tosses her like a ragdoll. She drags her back to the ring and lifts her up for a powerbomb, but Sarita punches her way out.
She tries to reverse into a hurricanrana but Isis hits the powerbomb anyway and Sarita is down. Isis then says she isn't done yet and takes her to the top rope. She goes for a superplex but Sarita pushes her off and hits a diving elbow drop. A pinfall but only two. Sarita locks on a sharpshooter on the Amazon, but she stands out of it with ease and lands a chokeslam for a pinfall.
Your Winner: Isis The Amazon
She stands over the laid out Dark Angel as Rosita comes out to help. Backstage we see Beth warming up to hit the ring. Allison Danger and Cherry Bomb are talking in the background as Beth goes to the ring.
Beth Phoenix Vs Cherry Bomb
Beth enters first, then Cherry after. Phoenix starts the match off in control and lands a row of German suplexes. Cherry is beaten down by the Glamazon as Beth then hits two standard suplexes following. Cherry tries to roll out but Phoenix picks her up for the Glam Slam but a reversal and Bomb gets out. She goes for a superkick, but misses and Beth clotheslines her.
Cherry kicks out of a pin attempt and goes for a roll up, but only one. Cherry then responds a Thesz press and goes to the top rope. A diving crossbody and Beth is down. Bomb locks on the Bridging double chicken wing, and Beth cannot get out. Phoenix is just about out and Cherry pushes her off and hits a superkick and locks the hold back on and Phoenix touches a rope. Beth is stumbling out and Cherry dives off the top rope and onto her outside the ring. Once Beth is up again she grabs the ring bell and clocks her with it.
Your Winner: Cherry Bomb by DQ
Allison Danger comes out to help Cherry up and as she walks to the stage, Awesome Kong stands before them. Beth smirks and Allison carries her through the crowd to avoid Kong. Phoenix and Kong nod to each other after that, somewhat of a signal perhaps.
Cliff Compton Street Invitation
Cliff stands in a back street just by 34th street as he holds a crowbar.
Bob smacks him in the back with a steel chair while he's talking. He tosses the chair on him and starts kicking him. Bob drags him down the street and Cliff smacks him with the crowbar in retaliation. Compton falls to one knee and starts coughing a lot as he gives Bob another hit to the stomach. Holly is tripping and leans on the wall. He grabs a near by trash can and smacks Compton in the head afterwords while he's still coughing.
Tonight we'll see if the big bad bully still has the ability to fight after i choked him out at Punishment. If Holly doesn't accept then i'm just 2-0 to the little (beep) anyway. So nothing lost for me huh? I guess I should go over the rules, well pinfall or just plain cripple your own opponent and you win. Seeing as I just may have re-broken Bob's neck at Madison Square Garden I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't show up ton-
Cliff then gives a right hook to his ribs and grabs a broken hockey stick from the can and smacks him in the head with it. He drags Bob down the alley and to the street as Bob pushes him off and forearms him to the concrete. Holly pulls him to the street and they reveal they're now in front of the Hammerstein Ballroom. Holly then takes him to the door and smacks him off the glass and drops him with a right hook. Compton stumbles and grabs brass knuckles out of his pocket. Compton then drops him with the knucks and stands over his slumped body.
Bully my ass, you're just trying to compensate for sucking at wrestling.
Cliff opens the door and drags him inside and tosses him at the ticket merchant and starts punching him in the skull, just as Bob reverses and lifts him up and spinebusters him through the velvet ropes. The ref backs everyone up and the two are crawling across the floor. The commentary then chimes in.
It's an official match, you agreed. We're fighting all over this place.
Compton then grabs a briefcase from someone near by and smacks it over Bob's back. He drags Holly back to the door and outside again as he takes him to the parking lot. Holly pushes him off and into the street sign and Bob staggeringly limps to the lot and Cliff barely makes it to him. He tackles Bob down and starts swinging as he then walks to his own car and takes a tire iron from the back.
We'd like to remind you this match was only made official this morning by Justin Credible and our friend here Raven, so this does not count as an outside fight.
Bob rushes for him and Cliff smacks him in the head with it. Holly is now slightly busted open above the eyebrow. Compton drags Holly's body into the middle of the lot and goes for a pin, but only two. Cliff picks him up for a DDT, but Holly reverses it and holds him over his shoulder and steps onto the hood of the car. Bob Alabama slams him and it shatters the windshield. Holly hooks a leg and gets a pin.
Your Winner: Bob Holly
Bob staggers off as the ref raises his hand and goes to help Cliff out. We head back to the ring as Picture Perfect take a seat ringside to watch the following tag match. The Tailor Made Express exit the locker room and stand on the stage as a commercial hits.
We come back and the Bashams are in the ring with their opponents.
The Tailor Made Express Vs The Basham Brothers
Riley is this time sitting out as Burchill takes control and is evenly paced against Doug Basham. Doug tries to get rough but Paul heeds him off and toe drops him to the turn buckle. Alex wants a tag but Burchill just shakes his head and says "no." Paul then stomps on Doug's back and lifts him up for an Impaling DDT. A pinfall and only two, as Danny breaks it up. Paul shoves Danny off and Doug takes out Paul's knee. Riley wants in but again, not happening.
Doug and Paul keeping fighting until Burchill Irish whips him to the corner and gets him up top. He goes for a superplex of sorts but Doug tries to reverse while in mid air and the two both land hard and almost injure their ribs and sides. Doug is gasping for air and tags in Danny, who takes over in beating up Paul. Burchill finally gets a tag out of desperation and Riley is ready to go. But the hot tag fails and Danny hits the brain damage on him.
Doug then joins in and hits the Last Impression with him. Alex is down and out, Paul tries to get in but Doug pushes him off and onto the barricade. Danny gets the pinfall right after.
Your Winners: The Bashams
Picture Perfect then get in the ring to congratulate them, but the Standard come out to ruin it. Steiner does push ups before grabbing the mic.
Masters then repeats to himself "cruiserfakes?....cruiserfakes?"
Woah woah friggin' woah! Are you about to offer these chumps here an opportunity for the friggin' titles? Do you run this place you vanilla midgets? Huh!? You fatboys and cruiserfakes can't handle the muscle or the pride that I, or we carry!
Burchill and Riley then limp to the end of the ramp and yell smack talk at them as Steiner calls them incoherent names. Jack Evans then grabs the mic.
We smashed the World's Greatest tag team and these two cue balls couldn't handle a friggin' express of ham and eggers!
However Scotty boy, we already beat both of you. You couldn't even beat Haas in the first place without Shelton screw jobbing his own man.
Evans and Kidman laugh at him as Steiner challenges The Bashams to a match next week.
THIS AIN'T ABOUT NO BOYS SCREWIN' OR NUTTIN'!
Picture Perfect then say they'll decide it that way. Steiner then walks off muttering about Jarrett and Burke. Backstage however we see Antonio with his personal guards Brown and Tarver, standing before Jarrett and Burke.
If the powers that be don't have a problem, then the match is on.
The World Champion's Locker Room
Now, I will not have you two clowns mess this up for me...
Hold up clowns? I'm saving these people from the trash TV they're subject to and all the filth in they have to put up with in this federation.
YOU GOD DAMN CLOWN, YOU ARE NOT SAVING ANYTHING! YOU COULDN'T SAVE YOUR ASS FROM MISSING THE TOILET! Look! You both needed a damn guitar to beat those two cruiserweights out there!
Across the backstage area though, another talk is happening.
Look, we're winning tonight and don't mess this up. Afterwards you can go back to playing guitars and pretending to save the people Ok? Good.
Carlito Colon, Rhyno, and Shad have a talk
Rhyno stands up and cracks his neck.
We got this tonight. The Television champn, the No1 Contender and yours truly.
Shad gets up.
You sure you got this?
Look man, you lost your world title shot against Antonio, we just want to make sure you really got this match on lock tonight.
They both nod and walk out as Carlito mumbles to himself.
Yeah, I got this on lock. Don't worry about me, just make sure you're both ready alright?
Shad and Rhyno are walking in the hallway.
Got this on lock? Pfftt, I got this on lock. I got everything on lock.
Back to the ring as Marco Corleone is ready for his first opponent back and Jason Gory enters the Warzone.
I don't think he has this on lock bro.
Marco Corleone Vs Jason Gory
Marco starts off furious and does a takedown in Gory. He smashes his head off the turnbuckle repeatedly and stops Jason from reversing. Corleone then drop kicks him down and hits a running kick to the face. Jason tries to fight back but Marco lands an execution DDT and then a gut wrench powerbomb. Jason is practically exhausted already and Marco hits two more drop kicks as Gory tries to retaliate.
Gory goes for the ropes to escape but Marco drags him back and Marco hits a springboard clothesline off the ropes and Jason is down. He ends the match off strong when he goes to the top rope and hits a diving crossbody. He hooks the leg and a pinfall.
Your Winner: Marco Corleone
Marco grabs a mic after his win and puts his foot on Jason.
James Mitchell then walks out with Lizmark Jr., Krimson and the rest of the Alliance of Darkness.
Lizmark, Lizmark you screwed up. There's a few things you all should know. One week after I was attacked, I was medically cleared. But I stayed home, why? One reason, I may be physically ready but Lizmark has always been on my back. Ever since I came to Mexico, Lizmark you thought i was stealing your spotlight and suddenly....Lizmark Jr. had become the scumbag he is now to score a win. You've chased me down for years and it all ends here. Lizmark, I want to take you down at Revenge.
Marco nods and waves for Krimson to come down. The group steps back and Corleone tosses Jason out of the ring to them. We then cut to a video package.
Corleone, not yet my son. Not yet. You do have a challenge awaiting at Revenge, and it's the one and only, Krimson. Next week Krimson will take down the golden hero Charlie Haas, but you still have a long road ahead of you. Because next week you face Kevin Thorn. Oh and Marco, the match with Krimson, will be a casket match!
Colt Cabana's road to recovery....
We get a video package of Backlund having Cabana goes through crazy work outs as Bobby Heenan does a stop watch. Haku also shouts at him and chokes him out at one point for messing up a tire jumping. Backlund throws him in the towel as Haku chokes him and Cabana later throws up in the back as Backlund pats him on the back. Colt is relaxing and Bob takes a seat.
Cabana then thinks and stands up. He turns on the radio and grabs a newspaper to sing. He puts his arm on Haku.
You got Chris Jericho in your first match back Colt. Boy, what's it gonna take to help you learn...
Listen baby! Ain't no mountain high, ain't no valley low, ain't no river WIDE ENOUGH BABY!
If you need me call me! No matter where you are, no matter how far!
They shrug and move on. A card then shows up advertising Colt Cabana Vs Chris Jericho next week in the Hammerstein Ballroom for a second time.
STOP IT! Both of you! We aren't doing this crap again!...back to work..ragh huhruh dumb crap
Back to the ring and Scorpio Sky has his chance.
Scorpio Sky Vs "Last Chance" Ace Steel
Sky enters the ring and Steel comes out last holding the title up. The match starts and the two do a shoving contest until Sky kicks him and tries to take him down. Steel pushes him down though and the two break out into a full on fight. Scorpio gets him to the corner and starts kneeing him in the face and causes a lip bleeding. Ace kicks his knee out and goes for the Steel Spike but Sky hits the rope.
Scorpio pushes him off the top rope and he lands onto the mat. Ace staggers and rolls back in, just as Sky stomps all over him. Sky then hits his finishing Blackout DDT and tries to get a pin but Ace kicks out. He tries to keep him down and possibly set up the Ace of Spades but Steel counters with a German suplex and a rear naked choke. Scorpio gets the rope and as he gets up Steel hits the Spinal Shock neckbreaker and the young man is down.
Steel then gets an armbar on and Sky is about to tap but just gets the rope. Scorpio pulls himself up but Ace hits a belly to belly across the ring and follows up with a final Spinal Shock. Sky is laid out with no sign of moving and Ace is about to pin, but no. Steel isn't done he slightly lifts Sky and goes to the top rope. He sets it up and the finale is the Steel Spike onto Sky and just has a sickening thud on the canvas. A pinfall and it's over.
Your Winner: "Last Chance" Ace Steel
He rolls him to the side and walks out with his title, as backstage Shelton Benjamin briefly speaks to the camera.
Next week, me and Charlie boy are gonna have a sit down and chat. I don't know why you clowns won't let me walk away from this mess, but i might as well create a bigger one huh?
We come back and Jushin Liger is in the ring as The Great Muta walks out with the Sinister Minister and "Lonesome" Jay Bradley sluggishly walks out to make his debut.
Jushin "Thunder" Liger Vs Jay Bradley
Jushin starts off by taking the big man off his feet and goes for a Thesz press. Liger somehow hits several impressive German suplexes on Bradley and goes for a brainbuster, but a reversal. Jay kicks his leg out and lands a snap DDT. Jay Irish whips him to the corner and hits a big boot. He laughs and aims to get the Boom stick early, but Jushin spins behind him and gets a roll up, but only two.
Bradley kicks out and hits a big sidewalk slam. He proceeds to drop a standing elbow and goes for a pin, but only two. Liger crawls to the ropes and gets to the top. He heel kicks Jay to the mat and follows up with a missile drop kick on him. Another pin attempt, but only two. Jay counters the pin with his own, but still two. Jay leans on the ropes and hits a surprise Second City Slam, but Jushin still kicks out.
Liger gets to the ropes and Muta stands up to green mist him, but Liger toe drops Bradley in the way and he gets the mist. Bradley tries to clean his eyes as Jushin backs the ref away and hits a jumping knee. The ref is ejecting Muta however, and doesn't see Bradley hit a low blow and pushes him off. He follows up with a Boom stick clothesline and Liger just about back flips as a result. Jay gets the pin and a victory.
Your Winner: "Lonesome" Jay Bradley
Jay wipes the mist out and walks away victorious. Muta then walks to the back as Mitchell says Liger just might get his day against the Great Muta. Then we notice all the six combatants warming up for the main event. But Chris Jericho first steps in the ring, minus music.
-Y2J Chris Jericho segment-
A few signs are up saying "Y23" and "Y3J"
The crowd starts to turn on him more and more.
Some recent events have brought up questioning to me. No, despite what you all think I am not lying to you all, I'm not playing a game. You people may have the audacity to ask me these questions, but this is not a set up or some sort of ruse. That little indy wonder you all love Matt Cross might have made up something in his diary that he thought would make him look like a hero, but it is not true. I don't need anyone to get me into the NWF, I can go wherever I want. I'm Chris Jericho! Apparently though the higher ups don't believe that and I'm reduced to facing that half a star Colt Cabana in his return match.
Matt Cross then stands on the first balcony and opens his arms calling for him.
What? You want Matt Cross? M-Dogg or whatever the hell?
Police officers are trying to get to him, just as a man in a ski mask takes a bat to his knee and rushes back out through the crowd. Police swarm the area and Jericho is laughing and applauding the man. Officers drag Cross off to end the segment.
Come on! You want the match at Revenge you'll get it!
Final commercial break
The Main Event:
Carlito Colon, Rhyno, and Shad Gaspard Vs Antonio Bank$, Jeff Jarrett, and Elijah Burke
Carlito enters first with his team as Jarrett and Burke walk out together, still only kinda allies. Antonio Bank$ follows after them with his guards, holding the world heavyweight title of course. The match starts off with Carlito and Burke.
The two grapple and Elijah cheap shots him into a neckbreaker. He follows up with a pin attempt, not even one. Elijah follows up with an STO and Carlito's head smacks off the canvas. He kicks out again and Colon Irish whips him to the ropes and hits an elbow. Carlito follows up with a knee drop on his skull and and sends him to his own corner. Carlito tags in Shad and the two lands a double reverse DDT.
Elijah is dazed and Gaspard Irish whips him into a big boot and a standing leg drop. A pinfall but only two, as Burke quickly cheap shots his knees and gets the 4-Up in. A DDT to follow and he Irish whips him to their corner. He tags in Antonio and Bank$ goes to work on the big man. Shad then powers out and chokebombs him onto the mat. Antonio is down as he's pummeled by the Television champion. Team Bank$ get awfully close to the ropes as Shad tells them to get down. He turns and Antonio drop kicks him, but Shad recovers before falling.
Bank$ rushes to the corner and tags in Jeff. Double J slowly gets in and asks Elijah if his guitar is near by. Shad grabs Jarrett and tosses him to the corner. Shad goes for a right hand, but Jeff ducks and Gaspard drops Carlito on accident, which counts as a tag. The ref tells Shad and Jarrett takes out his knee while he's talking. Colon then gets in and argues with Shad, until Jeff hits the Stroke on an unsuspecting Carlito and goes for a pin, but Colon gets the rope.
Jarrett then takes him to the corner and tags in Antonio. He sets Colon on the top rope and Antonio hurricanranas him off the top and into a mid air powerbomb caught by Burke and Jarrett. Bank$ goes for the pin but Rhyno breaks it up and Antonio slips out as the sight of the War machine.
Antonio regroups with his guards as Carlito is attempting to reach the corner. Jeff then rushes in and strikes to hit the Stroke, but Colon turns it into a reversal and a Backstabber.
Jeff is down and Carlito gets a tag to Rhyno, who just returned to the apron. Antonio slides back in, thinking it's Carlito and turns to see Rhyno. The two both are in the middle of the ring and Bank$ puts a hand up. They try a test of strength and Rhyno powers the champion down and turns it into the Rhino driver, but Elijah tackles them both down in the middle of the hold and saves Antonio. Jarrett is rolling out and looking for his guitar, but can't find it. Burke then starts giving punches to The War Machine, but Rhyno shoves him off and Elijah hits the mat. Rhyno then hits the Gore! on the Savior and he flips and half of him is lying through the ropes.
The crowd is crazy when he hits the gore! and Antonio makes a quick Playmaker on Rhyno and drops him. Colon rushes for a save, but from the apron Jarrett busts the guitar over his head. Carlito collapses on the mat and Shad big boots Jarrett off into the barricade. Antonio then lifts up Rhyno and hits a drive by kick and goes for the pin. The referee counts and Bank$ gets a three. As he turns he sees Carlito down, but the bell has already rang.
Your Winners: Antonio Bank$, Jeff Jarrett, and Elijah Burke.
Antonio grabs his title and Brown and Tarver escort him out as Rhyno is back on one knee now and furious. Jarrett and Elijah both stagger out after as Shad is helping Carlito to the corner. Gaspard shakes his head at the group walking out and our final shot is Antonio being held up again like at Punishment with the title in hand.
