Extreme Rules 2010
April 25th, 2010
(1st Mariner Arena)
After the pryo display, a high camera pans to a view that captures the entire capacity crowd. Among the cheers of the crowd and the blaring pay-per-view theme music we're met by the voices of the SmackDown announce team. Todd Grisham welcomes our Pay-Per-View audience to Baltimore and Extreme Rules. He along with Matt Striker touch on tonight's main events. First they discuss if Edge's experience in Ladder Matches can defeat the current momentum that Chris Jericho has against him. Matt Striker then suggests that John Cena's WWE Championship reign is in serious jeapordy tonight against not one, but two men when he meets Randy Orton and Batista! As the pay-per-view theme music fades away, Todd Grisham announces we'll be kicking off the show with some fast paced Scramble action.
The following contest is a Championship Scramble match and is for the Intercontinental Championship!
The crowd pops! It's been almost a year since the last Scramble match.
In this match, two superstars will start in the ring and every five minutes another superstar will join until all five superstars have entered the match. Pinfalls, submissions, and disqualifications can occur at any time during the match. When the match reaches it's twenty minute time limit, the superstar with the most recent fall will be declared the winner, and Intercontinental Champion!
Jim Ross quickly chimes in to remind the audience that only the WINNER of the match will be recognized as an official Intercontinental Champion and that any victories during the match are only temporary.
The crowd boo's as Drew McIntyre's music begins to play. The Intercontinental Champion does not enter the arena until his theme's lengthy intro concludes. Walking with purpose, McIntyre unbuttons his jacket to reveal the championship around his waist. With disdain in his face, Drew enters the ring and removes the title from around his waist before slowly raising it into the air.
Live for the Moment
Just as McIntyre smirks, he's interrupted by the theme of Matt Hardy! Hardy roars through the curtain, immediately throwing up the V.1! Hardy makes his way down the ramp as the crowd cheers his arrival. Hardy removes his t-shirt at the same time we see Drew handing his ring jacket off to a crew member. Matt enters the ring and immediately goes to the hard camera side, stepping up on the middle rope and again throwing up the V.1. Hardy steps down and back into his corner. The referee shows him the Intercontinental Championship before standing center ring and showing it off to the entire crowd. The official hands the title belt off to the Chimel then signals for the bell.
Championship Scramble Match
Kane vs Shelton Benjamin vs Drew McIntyre (C) vs Matt Hardy vs John Morrison
Drew McIntyre starts aggressive as the bell sounds, charging his opponent before he can even step out of his corner. The veteran Hardy though is not caught off guard, but rather side steps and allows the defending champion to collide into the turnbuckles chest first. The impact stuns Drew and causes him to stumble backwards where Hardy is waiting. Matt falls to his side, hooking Drew's leg in the process and rolling him down into a school boy pin. McIntyre is still clutching his chest as Hardy lays all his weight down on the champion's legs.
Current Intercontinental Champion:
MATT HARDY via pinfall (0:07)
The crowd erupts as Hardy stands to have his hand risen by the referee. McIntyre rolls up to his knees looking absolutely shocked. Technically he's no longer Intercontinental Champion. Matt can only smile at his opponent, but Drew doesn't find anything funny. McIntyre explodes up from the ground, wrapping his arms around Hardy's and tackling him to the mat. Drew unleashes a fury of right hands down towards Hardy's head, but Matt has his arms up to block the majority of the blows. The referee is able to pull Drew off Hardy after noticing he was ignoring the 5 count. Drew shouts at the official to back off before turning his attentions back to a rising Hardy. As Matt pushes up to his feet, Drew violently kicks up, connecting with his opponents chest which produces a loud SMACK! that grabs the audiences attention. Matt stumbles back and Drew hits the ropes. Coming back he throws up a big boot that catches Hardy square in the jaw which sends him to the mat. Drew immediately drops down for a cover, hooking a leg and hoping to take back the belt.
But Hardy shoots his shoulder up to avoid the fall and more importantly, maintain possession of the Intercontinental title. A little frustrated, Drew begins to stands. Bringing Hardy up with him, Drew has a firm grip around his opponents head and uses it to slowly turn him. Now back to back, Drew keeps Hardy's head wrapped up near his shoulder before quickly dropping down to his bottom, causing Matt's head to bounce off Drew's shoulder for a wicked looking Neckbreaker. Hardy rolls to his side, hands wrapped around his neck as McIntyre takes a glance at the 5 minute countdown clock which at the moment has 2:47 remaining. Now would be the time for Drew to regain the title in this 1 on 1 environment, and he knows it. Drew turns to cover Hardy once again..
But again Hardy kicks out. Drew sits on the mat for a moment, a little agitated as Matt once again starts pushing up to his feet. McIntyre slowly rises to meet Hardy in a vertical position and lunges forward, catching him in the jaw with a stiff elbow. Going back to the well, Drew connects with another elbow, then a third. The final elbow causes Hardy to fall back into the ropes, though he uses the momentum to push off and step back towards Drew. The Chosen One is ready though, and meets Hardy with an impressive dropkick. Drew waste's no time in popping back up to his feet. Rather then go for another pin, he takes a moment to gloat, asking the crowd "Did you see that?"
, which continues the boo's that Drew has been receiving since taking control of the match. With a hand placed over his mouth, Hardy can't begin to stand himself before Drew is already pulling him up by the hair. But Matt Hardy will not die! He throws a punch up into Drew's gut which slows the Scotsman momentarily. Matt then connects with a second, a third, then a fourth body shot before standing on his own and connecting a fifth and final punch to McIntyre's jaw. Hardy has his opponent reeling and turns to hit the ropes. But before he can run too far, Drew grabs and handful of Hardy's hair and when Matt tries to take off, he's instantly floored. The crowd let's Drew know they disapprove of his actions, but he could hardly care as he again begins to pull Hardy up off the mat. Wasting no time, Drew quickly scoops Matt up onto his shoulders. Taking only a moment, Drew then tosses Matt over his head and falls to a knee, forcing Hardy's stomach to collide into his knee. Matt falls off to side, clutching his abdomen only for Drew to fall on him and hook up both legs for a pin attempt.
Hardy refuses to be pinned. Drew slaps the mat, now yelling at the ref in debate of the 2 count. He frantically looks up to the countdown clock which has less then a minute remaining. McIntyre pulls out the hairband that holds his ponytail and throws it before rolling to his knee's and standing to his feet. With intensity in his eyes he glares at Hardy, allowing him a few moments to try and stand on his own. Drew though is impatient and grabs Hardy by the hair, helping him up his feet. He forces his opponent's head underneath his arm and hooks up both legs, setting up the Future Shock DDT. Drew cocks his leg back, but before he can swing into the DDT, Hardy spins out of the hold. Keeping his arm hooked with Drew's he instantly pulls McIntyre into a front face lock of his own before turning and hitting a Twist of Fate! The crowd pops big! Hardy is unable to go for a pin as he is already the current champion, but the move allows him time to regroup which couldn't come at a better time as there is less than 0:20 seconds on the countdown clock. As it reaches 10, the crowd begins to countdown along...
Ain't No Stoppin' Me
A stream of golden pyro shoots across the stage as the clock reaches zero. The fans are excited to see Benjamin as the odds of someone other than Drew leaving with the championship increases, and they like it. Shelton wastes very little time getting to the ring. Neither Hardy or Drew are up to the feet, but they're getting there. Shelton slides into the ring and as his music fades out he steps towards Hardy who's the first to his feet and picks him with a single leg takedown, sending the current champion to his back. Benjamin falls right down on top of him, hooking up the same leg.
But Hardy is quick to kick out. Benjamin gets up to his feet in no time and turns to Drew who is now standing. Shelton charges him, pushing him into the nearest corner and taking hold of his wrist. Benjamin immediately leaps back out of the corner and uses the momentum to whip Drew across the ring to the opposite corner. McIntyre's back collides into the turnbuckles but before he can react he is crushed back into the turnbuckles as Shelton connects with a big splash. Shelton steps back, allowing Drew to stumble towards him before lifting him up onto his shoulders and quickly falling back, sending Drew to the mat with a Samoan Drop. Benjamin rolls over, laying on Drew and hooking up a leg.
But McIntyre refuses to be pinned again. Shelton doesn't spend any time complaining and quickly gets back up to his feet. Once standing though, he's met by a right hand from Matt Hardy. The current title holder is desperate to get back on offense and keeps throwing punches until the Gold Standard is backed into the ropes. Hardy then forces him off the ropes and sends him across the ring. As Benjamin charges back he's floored center ring by a hard falling clothesline from Hardy. Matt gets back to his feet only to be charged by McIntyre. Much like the beginning of the match, Hardy side steps and allows Drew to take himself out with his own momentum, this time tossing him over the top rope and out of the ring. Matt turns to catch Shelton coming back up to his feet in his direction. Hardy runs and dives out, taking Benjamin down with another clothesline. Both men get back to their feet at almost the same time, and again Shelton pursues first which allows Hardy to turn out and catch his opponent in the face with a back elbow that again drops Benjamin. Shelton bumps but quickly feeds back up, this time he's lifted by Hardy who drops him down on his knee for an Atomic Drop. Shelton is stalled, and Hardy uses the opening. Matt wraps his arm around Shelton's head and hooks his left leg behind Shelton's right making it very easy for Hardy to connect with a Russian Legsweep. After impact Shelton rolls away towards the ropes and Hardy rises to a seated position. Matt is still a little worn out from McIntyre's assault early in the match, but he's bouncing back and soon gets to his feet as Benjamin pulls himself up. Hardy approaches, only to be kicked in the stomach by the Gold Standard. Shelton fights away from the ropes, punching Hardy with right hand after right hand until they end up in the center of the ring. Benjamin then goes for a gut kick but Hardy is quick to catch it. Matt then throws the kick away, and everyone in the arena see's what's coming next. But apparently Hardy does too and instantly ducks down. As Benjamin swings back around hoping to catch an unexpected Matt Hardy with the Dragon Whip kick, he hits nothing but air and falls to the mat. Getting back to his feet as quickly as he can he instantly finds himself clasped by Hardy who then hoists him up into the air and drops him down with the Side Effect! Matt is still unable to get another fall though and again sits up after connecting the move. By this time however McIntyre has re-entered the ring and dives down, hitting Hardy in the back of the head with a nasty elbow. Matt falls to the side and Drew scurries over to Shelton, hooking up his legs.
But Benjamin throws his shoulder up, preventing Drew from regaining his championship. Drew pushes up to his knee's, now pulling at his hair in frustration as a graphic of the countdown clock appears in the corner of the screen showing we have less than 3 minutes before the next superstar enters the fray. Looking over, Drew sees Hardy has reached his feet and McIntyre himself rushes up to his feet and charges Matt. THIS TIME he succeeds and collides into Hardy with stiff forearm to the jaw that sends Hardy back down to the mat. Standing tall over his fallen opponent the intensity is visible in McIntyre's eyes as his head shoots back towards Benjamin who is getting up himself. Drew marches over towards Shelton and backs him into a corner. Drew swiftly knee's Benjamin in the gut before wrapping his arms around his legs and lifting him up, sitting him on the top rope. Drew takes hold of Shelton's head with his left hand and punches him three times with his right before stepping up to the middle rope. Shelton tries to fight back, catching Drew in the midsection with some weak punches, but Drew sends a headbutt down into Benjamin's skull that stops the comeback. Shaking off the self inflicted pain from the headbutt, Drew catches Shelton with another punch before forcing his head under his arm and wrapping his free arm over Shelton's head. Drew takes a moment before stepping up to the top rope and lifting Benjamin, falling back and crashing down to the mat below with a big superplex! Though the fans hold disdain for Drew, they pop for the big move and get even more excited when they notice Hardy has pulled himself up to the middle rope. Holding his head, Hardy is clearly feeling the effects from of a few of Drew's shots. Nevertheless he throws up the V.1, and with both his opponents laying head to head in the middle of the ring, Hardy leaps out going for a big Leg Drop. Drew rolls away, just barely avoiding the collision, but Benjamin still down and out from the superplex has his face and neck smashed in by the weight of Hardy's leg and rolls over to his belly, holding his face. Drew see's and opening and jumps on it, quickly pouncing on Benjamin and rolling him over. Drew hooks both legs for the pin attempt.
.. BROKEN UP!
Hardy notices Drew trying to take back the title and dives onto the pin, colliding into Drew and knocking him off Shelton. We're approaching the 1 minute mark on the countdown clock and the match has broken down into a fairly even power struggle between Hardy and McIntyre. Once both men make it to their feet, Drew is the first to swing on Hardy, but Matt blocks and catches Drew with a right hand. Hardy quickly reaches out and clasps onto Drew, looking for the for the Side Effect again. McIntyre quickly elbows Matt in the head once, twice, three times before Hardy let's go. Drew tries to force Matt into the DDT position but Matt pushes him away and kicks him in the stomach before bringing him down into the Twist of Fate position yet again. Drew tries to pull his head free, his arms flapping about before throwing some right hands into Hardy's ribs which eventually sets him free. Drew drops to a knee and reaches under Hardy's legs before exploding up, bringing Hardy up with in a Powerbomb position. The crowd "OOOOH's"
before Drew jogs forward and throws Hardy down into the nearest corner for a buckle bomb! Hardy stumbles out of the corner, his back arched only to be kicked in his open abdomen. Matt doubles over and is easy pickings for Drew who hooks the arms and drops his opponent down to the mat with the Future Shock DDT! Using his head and both arms, Drew rolls Hardy over and hooks a leg.
Current Intercontinental Champion:
DREW MCINTYRE via pinfall (9:33)
Drew is ELATED after regaining control of the Intercontinental Championship. The referee raises his hand to signify the transition as the countdown clock graphic appears in the corner of the screen at 0:19 seconds. Drew pulls his hair back, looking up at the clock then down at his fallen opponents. Stepping back into a corner, Drew takes a moment to catch his breath before a fresh challenger arrives.
Ain't No Make Believe
The sea of fans upset that Drew had just regained the title are very pleased to see the arrival of John Morrison! The Guru of Greatness takes the time to perform his usual entrance, posing slow motion with his hair blowing in the wind, colorful pyro shooting off behind him. Drew watches on, enjoying every moment of downtime he's allowed with JoMo takes his time. Morrison removes his large fur coat and bedazzled sunglasses, leaving them on the stage. He takes a few steps down the ramp before he takes off sprinting. McIntyre's eyes grow wide as Morrison slides into the ring and the two run at each other. Morrison dives under a clothesline attempt from Drew and hits the ropes. John comes back towards Drew who's now just a deer caught in the headlights and kicks him with in the face with a leaping leg lariat. McIntyre hits the mat, but quickly gets back up and swings at Morrison who ducks the punch and comes up behind McIntyre. Morrison wraps and lifts his opponent as if going for a back suplex, but instead drops him forward and slams him down with a creative facebuster variation. Morrison holds onto Drew, rolling him over to his back using his legs and rolling over himself into a seated position on Drew's chest, holding his legs up for a pin attempt.
Morrison is absolutely blindsided by the kick from Benjamin that breaks up the pin. JoMo falls to the mat and Benjamin falls on top of him, hoping to get a quick fall.
But Morrison kicks out. Benjamin pushes up off Morrison and turns to Drew who is getting to his feet. McIntyre is facing the crowd and has no idea Shelton is approaching. The Gold Standard quickly wraps his arms around Drew's waist and launches him back, sending him down to the mat with a German Suplex. Drew rolls away falling under the ropes out of the ring. Shelton's attention is caught by Hardy who is just now getting up after being pinned by McIntyre. Watching Hardy rise, Shelton turns his body and it looks like he's setting up for a superkick. Hardy reaches his feet before seeing one of Shelton's coming right at him! Matt ducks and under and steps behind Shelton. Shelton quickly turns around as Hardy goes for a gut kick, but Benjamin catches the foot and smiles. Shelton throws the foot away and the momentum causes Hardy to spin. Matt comes back around to face Shelton, but before he knew what hit him, Shelton had already leaped into the air and spun, connecting with a spinning heel kick into Hardy's face that drops him to the mat successfully finishing the Dragon Whip he had attempted earlier. Benjamin pounces, falling on Hardy for the pin attempt.
From outside the ring Drew pulls Shelton off the pin by his foot before falling to the ground, his back resting against the mat. Shelton can't believe it as he gets up to his feet. He grabs the top rope and waits for Drew to stand back up. When he does, Shelton catapults himself over the ropes and falls down towards Drew, but the champion steps to the side. The agile Benjamin is able to get his feet under him though and avoid a devastating crash into the ground, that is until Drew charges into him and drives him all the way into the steel ring steps. The steps give nothing as Benjamin is slammed into them. Drew steps back, allowing Benjamin to fall to all fours. McIntyre is breathing pretty heavy as he looks down at Shelton. Drew takes only a moment before reaching down and hooking his arm around Shelton's head. He brings him up to his feet and hooks an arm setting up for the Future Shock DDT. The evil grin on his face can't even form fully before surprise takes over as John Morrison flings himself over the top rope into a corkscrew plancha before crashing into Drew and taking him down to the ground. The crowd pops and JoMo hops back to his feet. He's quick to get Drew back up and into the ring, following close behind as he hooks the leg for the pin!
But it's broken up by Hardy and Benjamin at the same time! Hardy and Benjamin bring Morrison into the nearest corner and begin attacking him with boots to the gut and punches to the head until he's sitting in the corner. Benjamin backs up then charges in, connecting with a running corner senton followed up quickly by a running knee smash by Hardy! Morrison is down in the corner as Hardy spins around and Benjamin hits a picture perfect dropkick to take him down as the 10 second countdown as begun and Drew low blows Benjamin!

Edge: Yeah sure come in.
Grisham leads his camera crew into the locker room and they set up as Grisham stands next to Edge.
Edge, tonight you will be taking on your former tag team partner turned rival Chris Jericho in a Ladder Match. You both have a ton of history with Ladder Matches so how do you plan to defeat him tonight and win the World Heavyweight Championship?
Edge: Well Todd, your right. Both me and Chris have a lot of history with Ladder Matches, in fact we have been in some of the best Ladder Matches in history. But tonight it isn't about the past, it's about the present and the present is a very personal feud between Chris and I. Tonight were gonna beat the hell out of each other and in the end i'm gonna prove i'm the better man by climbing the ladder and becoming World Heavyweight Champion once again.
Are you worried about how your knee will hold up?
Edge: You know what, i'm not. It has held up just fine since my return and I think tomight will be the same.
Thanks for your time Edge and good luck tonight.
Grisham leads the camera crew out of the locker room as Edge goes back to stretching and we now fade out from the locker room and into a video package for the next match.

The cameras go into the parking lot of the arena where we see Shad walk into the middle of it where there is no cars around and hes got a big chain in hand. From the other side of the parking lot we see JTG walk into camera view with a tire iron in hand as the referee signals for the time keeper in the arena to ring the bell!

The fans give a big pop and rise to their feet as Triple H is announced as the winner and his music blares through the speakers in the arena. Triple H throws down the sledgehammer and the referee bails out of the ring and raises Triple H's arm in victory. The referee now signals for the medics to come out and they do so to check on both men. However as the medics go to check on Triple H he shoves them off and starts to walk away on his own with a limp as he reaches the bottom of the ramp however his leg gives out and he falls down. Two referees now run out to check on Triple H and they help him back to his feet and end up helping him to the back with every fan in the arena on their feet showing respect for both Triple H and Sheamus, who went through hell tonight in this Last Man Standing Match.

Ladies and Gentleman, my guest at this time The Viper, Randy Orton!
Randy Orton walks into camera view and stands next to Grisham and lightly pats him on the back.
Randy, tonight you face off against Batista and WWE Champion John Cena in an Extreme Rules Match for the WWE Championship. What is your stratgey going to be to win the match?
Randy Orton: Todd, I've gone to war many times with John Cena in the past and I know his moveset just as well, if not better than he knows mine. I know what to expect from him and I know those fans are probably going to support him which will make him fight harder and that's fine but I doubt that'll be enough to beat me, a borderline psychotic manaic in an Extreme Rules Match!
What about Batista? You have had your problems with him over the last few weeks including him attacking you with multiple sneak attacks.
Randy Orton: Batista is in for the fight of his life tonight. You see, unlike John Cena, I don't respect Batista. I am going to use every weapon at my disposal to beat the living hell out of him. Hell, maybe at the end of the match i'll punt his skull in.
That's all the time we have, thanks for your time Randy.
Randy walks away with his game face on as the cameras go back to the ring.

Punk gets to his feet as Serena hands him a mic and his muis cuts as he begins walking down the ramp.
Punk: Tonight I am doing you all a favor, tonight i'm doing Rey Mysterio a favor and saving him from himself by forcing him to take the straight edge pledge.
The fans begin booing louder than before as the SES has reached the bottom of the ramp.
Punk: Look at you all, drinking your beers, you all need to learn to just say NO! Say no to your vices and accept me as your leader down the path to a pure life.
Punk steps through the ropes into the ring as Gallows and Serena go down to their knees in front of Punk.
Punk: Rey Mysterio, tonight is your first night on the path to becoming a pure man who's mind is clear of drugs and all other vices. It's just a shame i'm going to have to beat you down so bad that you have to be stretchered out of this arena before you will accept me as your leader.
Punk throws down the mic as his followers raise their fists to Punk who in turn stands over them with his fist raised which causes LOUD boos from the fans.

Chris, tonight your going to be taking on Edge in a Ladder Match where your World Heavyweight Championship will be suspended 20 feet above the ring. Earlier tonight Edge told me...
Before he can finish his sentance, Jericho snatches the mic away from Grisham.
Jericho: Do I look like I care what Edge had to say earlier?
Grisham takes a step back in fear as Jericho just glares at him, clearly he isn't expecting an answer.
Jericho: I don't care what Edge thinks will happen, I don't care what these people think will happen. All the fans in the arena are moronic parasites who can't think of anything intelligent to say so instead they join in with that neanderthal Edge with his stupid Spear chant. I swear that's the only word these idiots know because it's all they ever say!
This of course causes the fans to begin a loud SPEAR chant back inside the arena.
Jericho: See what I mean?!? Listen you moronic parasites if you don't stop with that stupid chant i'm gonna...
Before he can finish his thought, Jericho gets drilled out of nowhere with a HUGE SPEAR! The cameras pan up and we see Edge
standing over the champ with a smirk on his face as he picks up the mic.

The cameras cut from the interview area to the locker room area where Josh Matthews is walking towards the locker room of WWE Champion, John Cena. Matthews knocks on the door and gets told it's open so he leads the camera man with him into the locker room.
John, can I get a quick interview with you before your match tonight?
John Cena stands up and walks over to Josh before saying sure as he adjusts his championship on his shoulder.
John, we are just moments away from your Extreme Rules Match against Batista and Randy Orton where your WWE Championship will be on the line. How do you plan on not only surviving that match in one piece but also retaining your championship?
John Cena: Well Josh, i'm not gonna lie to you and say "oh i'm gonna go out there and dominate both guys, hit my finisher and win the match" because honestly, it's not that simple. Batista may have won this championship in a shady way but he put me through hell at Wrestlemania and i'm sure he will do it again tonight! Randy Orton on the other hand is a very different type of warrior. He is always thinking, always plotting his next move and he will do whatever it takes to get his hands on the WWE Title again. Josh, bottom line is, i'm about to step into hell with two other guys and only one of us is walking out with their soul!
Are you at all worried that Mr.McMahon might do something to cost you the championship again like he did at Elimination Chamber?
John Cena: You know, i'm always on the look out for things like that Josh. But I can't go out there worrying about what if's cause there is nothing I can do to prevent them. I'm gonna go out there, i'm gonna fight my ass off and win, lose or draw i'm gonna walk out tonight knowing I gave it my all.
Fair enough. Thanks for your time John.
