Re: Be the Booker Showcase Thread
Tajiri’s last televised match in a WWE ring occurred during the December 2005 edition of Sunday Night Heat in a match pitting him against Gregory Helms. Tajiri was outshined by Helms that night as he fell victim to Helms’ Shining Wizard. After the match, Tajiri delivered a touching farewell speech announcing that he would be returning to Japan. Tajiri received a standing ovation from the appreciative crowd as he gave thanks to both WWE and ECW. For the next few years Tajiri wrestled in the Orient, savoring his return back to his home country.
Shortly after his match with Tajiri, Gregory Helms returned to the Smackdown brand by capturing the Cruiserweight Championship at the 2006 Royal Rumble. Helms had a long tenure with the Cruiserweight Championship, holding on to it for over a year, breaking the previous record of 162 days which coincidentally belonged to Tajiri. In May 2007, Gregory Helms broke two vertebrae in his neck and the need for surgery put him on the shelf indefinitely.
In September 2008, Helms made his surprise return to WWE television. But because he was still 2 months away from being medically cleared to wrestle, Helms took a spot in the commentary booth alongside Tazz and Jim Ross. Reverting back to his arrogant tendencies, Helms dished out insults week in and week out to what he liked to call “lower-tier, second-rate wrestlers”. Helms hinted that when he finally returned back to the ring, Smackdown would be receiving a much-needed boost.
November 7, 2008 marked the night Helms was finally eligible to wrestle again. On this Friday night, Smackdown opened up with both Vickie Guerrero and Gregory Helms standing beside a mysterious pedestal; its contents hidden away by a black cloth. Vickie Guerrero announces to those in attendance that Gregory Helms has convinced her to reinstate the Cruiserweight Championship, a title that has been vacated since September 28, 2007. Gregory Helms rubs his hands in glee when Vickie removes the black cloth revealing the title that was once wrapped around Helms’ waist for 385 consecutive days.
When Helms reaches out for the title, Vickie stops him. She declares that in the spirit of competition it wouldn’t be fair to outright hand to belt back to Gregory Helms. Helms looks at Vickie in outrage. He asserts that he is the most deserving cruiserweight in the world, and that there is no reason why he shouldn’t be remade champion. Vickie smiles at Helms and reveals to him that in order to become Cruiserweight Champion for the 4th time of his career he would have to earn it. Vickie tells Helms that she has already booked Helms in a match tonight to crown a new Cruiserweight Champion. And his opponent would be another returning WWE superstar. Making his return from the Land of the Rising Sun, “The Japanese Buzzsaw” Tajiri.
Gregory Helms .vs. Tajiri
Tajiri steps out through the curtain and walks to the ring with a gigantic smile on his face, seemingly very happy to be back in the WWE. In complete contrast, the look on Helms’ face displays an entirely different emotion. Helms is visibly upset that the match is even happening in the first place. Helms tries to follow Vickie out of the ring to convince her to change her mind, but she ignores him and makes her way backstage.
Tajiri steps through the ring ropes and reacquaints himself with the aesthetics of the WWE ring by circling it a few times. With Vickie now out of sight, Helms realizes that he has no other choice but to take part in the match if he stands any chance to regain the Cruiserweight Championship. Helms hesitantly slides back in as the ref goes through the usual routine of showing the belt to both competitors before title matches. The ref hands the belt to the timeskeeper and asks for the bell to be rung.
The match gets underway and right from the get-go, Tajiri attacks Helms with a hail storm of his patented lethal kicks. As a result of Tajiri’s kicks, Helms stumbles backwards until he reaches the relative safety of the ring ropes for a rope break. Helms’ decision pays off because it prompts the ref to stop Tajiri from going after Helms for at least a count of 5. Helms orders the ref to back Tajiri further away. Tajiri obliges and takes a few steps backwards. Tajiri readjusts his wrist tape and smirks at Helms because he knows he got the best of him in that exchange.
Helms cautiously moves himself away from the ring ropes and heads back towards the middle of the ring where he tries to create a more methodical pace by locking up with Tajiri in an elbow-and-collar tie-up. Helms transitions the lock-up into a headlock and sends Tajiri off the ropes. Tajiri rebounds off the ropes and ducks under a leap frog from Helms. Tajiri bounces off the other sides’ ropes but this time gets tossed into the air with a back body drop from Helms. Tajiri’s back smacks against the canvas and Helms follows up immediately by synching in a surfboard stretch. Helms is now dictating the tempo of the match as he yanks Tajiri’s arms backwards while sticking his knee into Tajiri’s spine. With his mouth just inches apart from Tajiri’s ear, Helms begins to heckle Tajiri with obnoxious remarks. The ref asks Tajiri if he wants to give up but he shakes his head “no” in response.
Tajiri lifts his right leg and pounds the mat over and over again, trying to pump up the crowd in his favor. The crowd bursts into cheers trying to rally Tajiri back up. Tajiri uses the crowd’s response as a boost and gets back up to a vertical basis but he still has his arms tied back by Helms. Tajiri flips forward and escapes Helms’ grasp with an incredible dropkick to the sternum. Upon the sudden blow, Helms instinctively releases Tajiri’s arms and bowls over holding his stomach in pain. Tajiri quickly gets back to his feet and delivers a roundhouse kick to Helms’ chest. Helms doubles over from the hit. However, as Tajiri tries to follow it up with a spinning sole kick, Helms manages to capture Tajiri’s leg. Helms pushes Tajiri forward and backs off the ropes for some extra momentum before clubbing Tajiri in the back of his head with a diving forearm. They both rise up from the mats at the same time but Helms is the first to attack. Tajiri ducks a clothesline by Helms and trips him up with a double-leg takedown from behind. Tajiri sits on top of Helms’ back and begins to playfully massage Helms’ head by rubbing his hands in Helms’ hair. Tajiri’s creation of an artificial bad hair day infuriates Helms. Helms covers his head with his hands to try to stop Tajiri from prolonging the embarrassment. Tajiri stands back up, runs off the ropes and jumps on top of Helms’ prone back with a double stomp. On impulse, Helms’ reaches towards his back with his left hand to try to soothe the pain.
Helms is still grimacing from the pain caused by Tajiri’s double stomp when he gets pulled back up. Tajiri leans him against the ropes and launches him towards the other side with an Irish whip. But instead of rebounding off of them, Helms stops himself by holding onto the ropes. Helms flicks his hand forward as if to say he has had enough and exits the ring. Helms gathers his wits on the outside of the ring as Tajiri taunts him from the inside with a Japanese chicken dance. Helms is enraged at Tajiri’s antics. He stares at the crowd in disbelief as they applaud Tajiri’s hysterics with laughter. Helms tries to tell everybody that what Tajiri is doing is not funny but his words fall on deaf ears. Helms climbs back up to the apron. As soon as Tajiri goes after him, Helms jumps back to the arena floor and grabs hold of Tajiri’s feet. Helms yanks Tajiri off balance which causes him to fall to the mat. This gives Helms the opportunity to reenter the ring. Helms slithers back into the ring and drops a well-calculated elbow to Tajiri’s midsection. Helms gets right back up and puts a well-placed boot on top of Tajiri’s throat. Helms uses the ring ropes for added leverage as he steps on top of Tajiri’s throat as if it were a stepping stool. At the count of 5, the ref rips Helms away from the ropes. Helms holds his hands up into the air as if to plead innocent to any wrongdoing. Helms latches onto Tajiri’s leg and drags him to the center of the ring. Helms targets Tajiri’s abdomen with the point of his elbow before dropping down with an elbow drop. Helms hooks Tajiri’s leg for a pin cover…
Tajiri kicks out. Helms pulls Tajiri up and goes for an Irish whip but Tajiri counters with one of his own. Upon Helms’ arrival back to the center of the ring, Tajiri connects with a kick to the thigh. The sound reverberates throughout the entire arena. Tajiri extends the punishment with a combo of stiff kicks before he runs off the ropes. Helms tries to catch him off guard with a clothesline but Tajiri slides through his legs. Tajiri gets up to a vertical stance and strives for another roundhouse kick. Helms sweeps Tajiri’s foot away before it is able to make impact and captures Tajiri in a small package…
Tajiri kicks out. They both regain footing at the same time but Helms is the first to move. He takes a stab at knocking Tajiri down with a forearm but Tajiri reverses it into a backslide…
Helms kicks out. Tajiri runs off the ropes and attaches himself to Helms’ shoulders with a modified crucifix pin…
Helms kicks out again. Helms sits up and is a little dizzy from the fast paced pin attempts. Tajiri approaches Helms from the rear and knocks the pus out of him with a kick to the spine. The pain caused by the kick is smeared all over Helms’ face. Tajiri lifts Helms up and sends him off the ropes with an Irish whip. Tajiri drops down to the floor as Helms leaps over him and rebounds off the ropes again. Helms rejoins Tajiri back in the center of the ring but ducks under Tajiri’s clothesline. Helms runs off the ropes once again but sees Tajiri’s back hook kick coming and slides underneath Tajiri all the way out of the ring. Tajiri leans over the ropes to go after him but Helms seizes him in a modified headlock. Helms makes his way back up to the apron with Tajiri’s head still locked in a modified headlock. Helms scrunches up his fist and delivers a devastating strike to Tajiri’s face that sends him tumbling back into the ring. Helms steps back into the ring and simply stomps Tajiri in the face a couple of times to inflict more damage. He stands over Tajiri’s body and grabs hold of Tajiri’s face with both hands. He begins to wildly shake Tajiri by the head while shouting vile words at him. Helms roughly lets go of him but stomps him in the face again for good measure.
Helms makes his way to the turnbuckle corner to cool down before directing his attention back to Tajiri. Helms walks over to Tajiri and bends down to pick him up. Tajiri uses this opportunity to surprise Helms. Tajiri slides to his stomach and heaves his legs into the air, snaring Helms’ head with a headscissors. Tajiri holds on tight as he uses his arms to push up and add some leverage. Helms appears to be lassoed in tight as Tajiri squeezes his legs around Helms’ head with the headscissors. Helms doesn’t even seem to be able to put on a fight as the pressure builds from position he’s in, caught in between Tajiri’s strong leg muscles. Helms’ stamina appears to be fading as his body slowly droops down to the mat. Tajiri gets into a more comfortable position on the canvas but still remains affixed to Helms with the headscissors. Helms is now flat on his stomach still secured in Tajiri’s hold. The ref lifts Helms’ arm and lets it fall limp to the mat. He does it a second time and the same thing happens with Helms’ arm falling limp to the ring’s floor. The ref signals that he’ll be doing it for a third time and if the same equation occurs, he’ll have no choice but to call the match in Tajiri’s favor. However, as the ref tries to grab Helms hand, Helms brushes the ref’s hand away and drapes his left leg over the bottom rope for a rope break. The crowd groans in disappointment but Tajiri rises back to his feet and tells the crowd not to worry because it’ll all be finished when he connects with the Buzzsaw kick. Tajiri gets into his stance and waits for Helms to get back up so that he could execute his finishing maneuver. Helms uses the ropes to slowly get back up. He has his back turned to Tajiri so he has no clue what’s about to hit him. Helms turns around but immediately drops to the ground when he sees Tajiri’s leg flash in front of his eyes. Helms barely dodges Tajiri’s kick as he crawls out of the ring as if a grenade was about to explode.
The crowd erupts in boos. They are not pleased with Helms’ cowardly ways. Helms slowly backpedals up the entrance aisle to gather some time to regroup. But Tajiri is not going to allow it. He exits the ring in pursuit of Helms. Helms holds out his hands and urges Tajiri to give him a break. Tajiri ignores him and goes after him despite his request for mercy. Helms takes a few clumsy steps backwards but still manages to gain the advantage over Tajiri by thrusting his right leg forward with a kick to the sternum. Helms corrals Tajiri into his arms for a scoop slam but before he could slam him down into the entrance ramp’s cold hard steel, Tajiri breaks loose. Tajiri falls to his feet behind Helms but swings and misses with a kick. Helms dodges out of the way of Tajiri’s kick and retreats backs to the ring. Tajiri follows Helms and snags one of his legs before he could slide his whole body back into the ring. Tajiri tugs Helms out of the ring but finds one of Helms’ thumbs wedged into his eye. After his cheap shot, Helms quickly scurries back into the ring as Tajiri rubs his eye with the back of his hand trying to regain his vision. Helms inches his way back up to his feet in the ring before running off the ropes. Helms takes aim at Tajiri on the outside of the ring and knocks him for a loop with a baseball slide. Helms stands up after the move but finds the referee insisting that he let Tajiri get back into the ring. Helms bypasses the referee and grabs onto the top rope before rocketing himself out of the ring with a suicide plancha. Unfortunately for Helms, Tajiri regains enough of his vision in time to see Helms descending upon him from the inside of the ring. Tajiri shifts his body out of the way and crushes Helms’ midriff with a vicious kick. After feeling the brunt of Tajiri’s kick, Helms ends up on all fours as if he were about ready to puke into a bucket. Tajiri slips back into the ring and waits for Helms to get back in the ring so that he could finish the match once and for all. The ref starts to count Helms out…
At the count of 7, Helms hobbles up to his feet and uses the ropes to climb back onto the apron. Helms asks the ref to make Tajiri back away before getting back inside of the ring. Helms staggers back into the ring but falls to one knee still feeling the effects of Tajiri’s kick. Tajiri looms over Helms but receives an elbow to the stomach from Helms in the process. Helms grabs hold of Tajiri’s head and spins him around, looking to execute a neckbreaker. Helms drops down to the canvas but instead of planting Tajiri down with him like he should have, he ends up being hitting the canvas empty-handed. Tajiri managed to slip out of Helms’ grasp like a wet bar of soap by holding tightly to the top rope. Helms caresses the back of his head in agony as Tajiri pulls him up to a standing position. Tajiri anchors him over to the turnbuckle corner. Tajiri wrenches Helms’ arm before sending him to the opposite coast with an Irish whip. Helms crashes backfirst into the corner before Tajiri charges after him. However, before Tajiri can lay a hand on Helms, Helms hoists his boot right into Tajiri’s face. Helms switches position with Tajiri and lays into him with right hands. Helms hooks his arm and sends him careening to the opposite corner. Helms charges after him but is unable to react in time to Tajiri vaulting in the air. Tajiri hovers over Helms and lands on his feet as Helms collides with the turnbuckle pads. Tajiri grabs Helms’ hand but fails to Irish whip him back to the opposite corner again because Helms counters it. While midway across the ring, Helms counters the Irish whip and kicks Tajiri in the midsection. Instead of Irish whipping Tajiri to the corner, Helms decides to send him off of the ring ropes. Tajiri ducks under Helms’ clothesline and rearranges Helms’ face with his trademark handspring back elbow. Tajiri goes for a cover…
Helms gets his shoulder up. Tajiri backs Helms into the corner before shooting him off to the opposite corner. Tajiri rushes after him but is hurled into the air by Helms with a back body as he reached the corner. But instead of crashing to the outside Tajiri manages to land on the apron. He nabs Helms by the head before ramming him into the turnbuckle. Tajiri slingshots himself back into the ring and pelts Helms’ in the corner with a spinning back elbow. Tajiri kicks Helms in the abdomen before firing him to the opposite corner with an Irish whip. Helms cranes his boot into the air hoping to thwart off Tajiri’s running attack but Tajiri stops himself and foils Helms’ plan. Tajiri holds onto Helms’ foot which forces him to hobble on one foot. However, since Helms is in the corner he is able to use the ropes to keep himself from falling. Helms uses his positioning to his advantage. He uses the ropes to steady himself and kicks Tajiri in the face with his free leg. Helms grabs Tajiri by his hair and tights and sends him barreling through the ropes to the outside.
Helms gathers his bearings on the inside of the ring before heading outside. Helms snatches Tajiri by the hair and bashes Tajiri’s face off the apron before rolling him back inside. Helms pulls Tajiri up and locks in an inverted facelock. Helms gestures for his finishing move, the Nightmare on Helms Street. Helms twists his body around looking to drop Tajiri with his high speed spinning headlock elbow drop but Tajiri counters it by transitioning into a waistlock. Tajiri rolls Helms up with the O’Connor roll and turns it into a pinning predicament…
Helms kicks out. Tajiri runs off the ropes looking to continue the attack but runs right into a drop toe hold off the ropes by Helms. Helms rises up and sees Tajiri sprawled against the middle rope, a prime opportunity for a leapfrog body guillotine. Helms runs off the opposite side’s ropes and then runs full speed ahead at Tajiri before sandwiching Tajiri with the second rope with a body guillotine. Helms stays in this position, applying pressure to Tajiri’s throat against the rope. At the count of 5 he’s forced to break the hold by the referee. Helms has a huge grin on his face, satisfied to be in control of the match once again. Helms asks the crowd if they want to see him pull off the move again but does not receive a warm response. Helms pays no attention to the crowd’s boos and goes ahead and repeats the move a second time. After the move, Helms cockily circles the ring with his arms in the air as if he thought a spotlight was on him. The arena echos with boos because the crowd does not appreciate Helms’ piss-poor attitude.
Helms drags Tajiri back to the center of the ring with a handful of hair and acts as if he had just reeled in a fish and was showing it off. With Tajiri in this weakened state, Helms scrunches up his fist and simply punches him in the face with a straight right hand. Tajiri falls to the canvas and Helms hooks his leg with a lazy cover…
Tajiri kicks out. Helms shrugs his shoulders as if it were no big deal and pulls Tajiri up to a vertical basis. Helms hooks Tajiri into an inverted facelock and gestures for the move he was unable to pull off earlier in the match, the Nightmare on Helms Street. Helms playfully wipes his forehead as if he had broken into a sweat before planting Tajiri into the canvas with the high speed spinning headlock elbow drop. Helms hooks Tajiri’s leg…
Tajiri kicks out and Helms can’t believe it. Helms looks at the ref in shock as he claps his hands together thinking it had to have been a 3 count. Helms violently lifts Tajiri up and locks in a tight headlock. The recent nearfall has evidently riled Helms up. Helms roughly wrenches at Tajiri’s head, his mood turned sour. Helms crams his fingers into a ball and lays into Tajiri‘s head with a series of hard right hands. Helms liberates Tajiri from the headlock and runs off the ropes. Helms ascends into the air but overshoots Tajiri, missing his diving clothesline. Helms picks himself up but walks right into a boot from Tajiri to the gut. Tajiri pilots Helms over to the ropes and Irish whips him across the ring. Tajiri seeks a roundhouse kick but Helms skirts out of the way and bounces off the ropes again before knocking Tajiri down with a shoulder block. Helms changes direction and runs off the ropes to his right. Tajiri rolls over to his stomach but Helms easily hops over him. Helms rebounds off the ropes and ducks under a leap frog from Tajiri. Helms springs off the ropes again as Tajiri rolls backwards hoping to catch him off guard with a modified monkey flip. However, Helms sees it coming and intercepts Tajiri by pulling him up to his feet. Helms links hands with Tajiri and Irish whips him across the ring. Helms bends over in preparation for a back body drop but gets his face smattered by a kick from Tajiri. Helms lurches backwards from the kick but wards off a second kick from Tajiri. Helms slings Tajiri’s leg away and goes for a forearm strike but Tajiri reverses it into a backslide.
But Helms doesn’t allow Tajiri to take him down for the pin. Helms implements a counter of his own. Helms has Tajiri in position for an inverted double underhook mat slam but Tajiri slips out. Tajiri hitches onto Helms’ right arm and kicks him in the chest with a succession of roundhouse kicks. Tajiri goes for an Irish whip on Helms but Helms reverses it. Helms waits for Tajiri in the center of the ring so that he could execute a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Helms twirls Tajiri like a baton with the tilt-a-whirl but instead of slamming Tajiri over his knee, Helms is reversed by Tajiri and is tossed into the air with a jaw-dropping monkey flip.
Helms holds onto his lower back in pain from his awkward fall to the canvas after the monkey flip. Tajiri lifts Helms up and puts him in a front face lock. Tajiri grabs onto the side of Helms’ tights and carries him into the air looking for a brainbuster but Helms frees himself out of the move and lands back on his feet behind Tajiri. Helms drops down to the mat and pulls Tajiri with him with a school boy…
Tajiri kicks out and crawls back to the ropes. Helms goes for another school boy but Tajiri latches onto the ropes to block it. Tajiri spins around and sits on top of Helms for a pinning combination…
Helms heaves his legs and hooks Tajiri’s arm to reverse the pin with a roll-up of his own…
Tajiri kicks out. Helms falls to his back exhausted, needing a momentary recess. Helms uses the ropes to pull himself back up and waits for Tajiri to stand back up. Helms seems to be buying his time as he waits for Tajiri to rise up. Tajiri staggers to his feet and turns around… Superkick!
But Tajiri goes for a kick of his own at the very same time. This results in an ill-fated moment for Helms as the point of Tajiri’s boot collides with Helms’ groin in an unintentional low blow. However, both Helms and Tajiri are laid out on the floor as Tajiri did not get by unscathed. Even though it happened at the very same time Tajiri kicked him where the sun don’t shine, Helms was still able to drive his boot into Tajiri’s jaw with the superkick. The ref decides not to disqualify Tajiri for the low blow because he concludes that it was done accidentally. Instead, the ref begins a countout.
At the count of 7 Helms stumbles up to his feet and confronts the ref over the low blow. The ref explains to Helms that he ruled the low blow an accident. This infuriates Helms as he continues to argue with the referee over the incident. Helms’ verbal dispute with the referee gives Tajiri a little extra time to get back up. When Tajiri finally does get back up he sees that Helms’ attention is diverted. Tajiri races after Helms and climbs on top of his back before locking in his signature submission move, the Tarantula. Helms bellows out in pain as his limbs get stretched by Tajiri’s hanging Boston crab. Tajiri releases the move before the count of 5 and lingers over Helms waiting for him to get back up to finish him off. Helms uses the corner turnbuckles to pick himself back up but backs right into Tajiri’s arms. Tajiri locks Helms in a full nelson and appears to be going for a dragon suplex. Helms shoves his left elbow backwards and it catches Tajiri in the face. Helms escapes and drops down to his knees. He takes Tajiri down with a fireman’s carry takeover and snares Tajiri’s right leg. Helms tows Tajiri to the center of the ring and twists Tajiri’s leg as if going for a spinning toe hold. But Tajiri finds a way out of it by using his free leg to thrust Helms forward into the ropes. Tajiri gets back up and strolls over to Helms. Tajiri secures him with a waistlock looking for a possible German suplex. But Helms utilizes a stand and switch and has Tajiri in his own version of a waistlock. Helms makes use of his remaining strength and sends Tajiri over his head into the canvas with a German suplex. But Helms doesn’t release his hold on Tajiri as he gets right back up and plants Tajiri with yet another one. Helms still isn’t through yet as he gets back up and launches Tajiri with a 3rd consecutive German suplex. However, the weight of the match has taken its toll on Helms’ body as he is unable to hold onto a bridge in order to get the pin over Tajiri. Helms has expensed all of his energy in that last German suplex as he is unable to continue the offense. Once again, the ref starts a double countout but Helms shows signs of life at the count of 4. Helms crawls at a snail’s pace over to where Tajiri is but finally drapes his arm over Tajiri for a cover.
Tajiri gets his shoulder up. Helms dips his head in frustration. Helms digs into the last remnants of his energy supply and slowly staggers up to his feet. He looks down at Tajiri and then looks at the top rope. Helms seems to have a top rope move mapped in his head as he marches over to the nearest corner. Helms leaves the inside of the ring to get to the apron where he begins his ascent to the top rope. Helms makes it to the top rope and glares at Tajiri, urging him to get back up. When Tajiri finally finds his footing, Helms flies through the air with a diving crossbody. But Tajiri promptly reacts to Helms’ towering shadow and sidesteps out of the way. Tajiri watches as Helms crashes and burns into the canvas.
Helms ends up on his knees clutching the front of his body in misery; the ideal setup for Tajiri’s finishing move. Tajiri gets into his stance and slaps the mat with his hands before setting in motion for the Buzzsaw Kick. Tajiri swings his leg at Helms like a boomerang but Helms somehow finds the inner strength to escape the trajectory of Tajiri’s lethal kick. Helms shoves Tajiri towards the corner and strolls after him. Step-up enziguiri! Helms absolutely levels Tajiri with the kick. Tajiri slumps to his knees. Helms gets to a vertical basis but saunters away from Tajiri instead of towards him. Helms finds his target again and charges at Tajiri, using the newly acquired distance to pick up speed. Shining Wizard! Helms cracks Tajiri in the side of his head with his finishing move. Helms hooks Tajiri’s leg for the cover…
Gregory Helms defeats Tajiri to become the new Cruiserweight Champion to the chagrin of the Smackdown fans. The grueling match appears to have drained the energy of both competitors. Helms can barely find enough energy to celebrate his victory as he sits up on the canvas in a visibly fatigued state. Tajiri is sprawled on the canvas blinking into the arena’s lights overhead, the effects of Helms’ Shining Wizard still raining down on him. Tajiri’s goal of recapturing Cruiserweight gold has been shattered by the hands of the newly crowned Cruiserweight Champion and winner of the match, Gregory Helms.

Booker T punched all of the 3 referees that tried to attend to Kennedy, and Booker just started the rain of punches all over again. Booker finally got off and ran over to the ladder that John Morrison had introduced moments ago, and Drilled Kennedy with it. Booker T kept saying “Don’t cost me mah title, Man!” Booker kept the beet down coming as other superstars just kept doing what they were doing. Booker T hit him with ladder after ladder to the head, not busting him open though, as though they were going pretty hard core. Booker T then lifted his head off the ground and carried him from the bottom of the ramp to the corner of the outside of the ring and continued to destroy his foe, mashing and bashing his skull in with the ladder. He then hit him in the head with some forearms as he then proceeded to CRASH his head into the steel ring post, CUTTNG HIM OPEN! Booker T then grabbed Kennedy…And threw him into the ring!
Booker T then said “Get Ehm” as Masters and Carlito went over to him and lifted him up and threw him over the ropes and setting him on the apron. They then bounced off the ropes and then Carlito hit a running leg sweep on his partner and Carlito ran over, and Smashed into the gut of Mr. Kennedy, Knocking him to the pavement below.

JTG went in on Carlito, along with Shad who followed up, ready to concave the throat of the man that is Carlito, and they didn’t fail as JTG and Shad ran and crashed into Carlito with a harsh clothesline, laying him out.

When Shad turned to lift Carlito back up, JTG came up flying as he hit a bulldog ON HIS OWN PARTNER….Rupturing the arena with heat. This was a despicable act.

Cena collapses to the floor, bloody, bruised and tired as he rests up as he won’t be in any more action here this evening. Ad now we are down to the final 3! The last 3 remaining in 3 people who entered late in this match up with Randy Orton, Bobby Lashley, and the surprise of Chris Jericho! Bobby Lashley runs across the apron (Him on the inside, Orton on the outside) AND HITS A CLOTHESLINE….KNOCKING ORTON OFF OF HIS FEET…BUT LANDS ON THE APRON! Lashley thinks that he has eliminated Orton, and turns around and runs after Jericho who is sitting against the turnbuckle a little winded. Lashley then tries to Kick Jericho, but Jericho reverses out by tripping up Lashley and he smashes his face on the turnbuckle! Jericho still holds his legs and brings Lashley to the center of the ring and grabs the other leg. Jericho then flips Lashley over and INTO THE WALLS OF JERICHO! He wrenches it in!
Orton is now up and He charges into the ring and grabs Jericho by the hair and throws him backwards onto the head of Lashley. They are both down and incapacitated as Orton does his signature pose in the center of the ring. Then a few seconds later after a bad fan reaction to him, Orton heads to the ground and stalks either Jericho or Lashley for his RKO. Around 10 seconds or so later, Jericho makes it to his feet and Orton JUMPS UP INTO THE AIR...AND HITS JERICHO WITH THE RKO! Orton walks backwards and into Bobby Lashley who lifts TLK up AMD HITS A VISCOUS POWERSLAM! Now Orton is down as Lashley is the last one standing. Lashley then grabs Jericho who is dazed and out of it after the RKO and Lashley LIFTS HIM UP FOR THE DOMINATOR…AND JERICHO SQUIRMS OUT AND DDT’S LASHLEY!
Now both Jericho and Lashley are isolated as Orton gets up. Orton then runs to the corner and gets ready to hit the RKO…but Lashley gets on his knees and Orton then realizes what he truly wants…To Punt Lashley! Orton runs after Lashley and Lashley drops to the canvas and Orton swings and misses. Then while Orton’s foot is still up, LASHLEY SLASHES ORTON IN THE GNARDS!
Orton falls hard as Lashley turns around and looks at Jericho. They are now up and going as Orton is still down. Jericho then walks into Lashley and they go face to face. Jericho is the first to move by hitting a right…then a left from Lashley…then a right from Jericho…Then a left from Lashley, taking Jericho to the mat. Jericho springs up and bounces off of the ropes. He bounces back at Lashley who springboards up and over Jericho showing great athleticism. Jericho bounces off of that rope and charges after Lashley who ducks and Jericho DIVES OVER LASHLEY…OVER THE TOP ROPE…BUT YET AGAIN HOLDS ON! Now Lashley starts to hit Jericho with WILD rights getting a bit frustrated. But now Orton is up and on the top turnbuckle. HE JUMPS OFF THE TURNBUCKLE ATT LASHLEY…AND LASHLEY GLIMPSES OVER AND CATCHES TLK…HE THEN CARRIES HIM OVER TO THE ROPES AND DUMPS HIM OVER….AND ORTON CRASHES TO THE FLOOR!!!!!
ELIMINATION #28: Randy Orton by Bobby Lashley
Orton falls to the floor and is a little winded and doesn’t move an inch. But now we are down to two as we see Jericho and Lashley square up in the center of the ring after an anticipated wait. The crowd goes wild as we are down to two! The Final Two! Jericho and Lashley get into an arm hold on each other as most wrestlers do at the start of there match. Lashley gets the best of Jericho by turning the Arm lock into a side headlock which he tweaks a couple times before Jericho elbowed out and Irish Whipped Lashley into the ropes and Jericho jumped up and attempted to hit the code breaker, but Lashley rejected him by throwing him down hard to the canvas.
Lashley then went after Jericho with some combat fighting antics by kicking and punching Jericho. Jericho then got out of the fighting from Lashley by connecting with a single punch to the face of the dominator. Jericho then climbed to the top rope and attempted to knock Lashley to the floor with a drop kick but Lashley moved out of the way and hit a straightened kick on Jericho, Sending them both down.
Now Lashley was the first to get up relatively to Jericho though who followed right after. Jericho again with his agility and quickness got to the punch first as he dove on to Lashley, but Lashley caught him in mid air and threw him over the tope rope, but Jericho hung on! Jericho then tried to hit Lashley while holding on the ropes and Lashley blasted him one to the face, as Jericho was sent backwards a little more, but soon regained position. Now Jericho sprung his legs over the top rope and clutched Lashley by the head in a leg scissors and brought Lashley over onto the apron with him. They both fought to the bone with rights and lefts and rights and lefts as they were both hanging from a thread. Lashley then hopped onto the top rope quickly and Jumped off, nailing Jericho with a kick but it wasn’t enough to take Jericho down as Jericho quickly shook it off and entered the ring.
Lashley took no wait as he charged after Jericho and hit a high knee and then ran over to the ropes and bounced off and steamed over to Jericho and Jericho was against the ropes. Jericho then took the ropes down sending Lashley to the outside…But he still holds on! Jericho then hits five or so rights, then lefts…and now we have Chris Jericho standing and he jumps and attempts the code breaker, but Lashley catches him. Jericho holds on and kicks Lashley in the face to squirm out and he is now lying in the ring as Lashley enters the ring with him.
Lashley is now a little tired but that is nothing compared to Jericho after the lots he has sustained in this match up. Jericho ran over to Lashley this time and Lashley slides under a boot and comes up and hits Jericho with a running clothesline. Jericho and Lashley are still in it while the dominator bounces off of the ropes and Jericho dives under him and Lashley bounces off of those ropes and runs after Jericho ho is up and Bobby Lashley hits Jericho with a boot, but Jericho stumbles over to the ropes. Bobby Lashley then runs over to the ropes ad JERICHO LIFTS HIM UP…AND OVER THE TOP ROPE…BUT HE LANDS ON THE APRON! Jericho then hits him with several kicks and then out of no where JERICHO ATTEMPTS A CODE BREAKER…AND CONNECTS LASHLEYS FACE WITH THE ROPES…SENDING HIM TO THE FLOOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Since I'm new here and in the process of getting my BTB operational I thought this would be a good way to show people what I can do.
BTB Match Writing Tournament
Round Two-No Holds Barred
For over a year Jimmy Jacobs and Lacey were the power couple in Ring of Honor. With Jimmy Jacobs at the helm the Age of the Fall dominated Ring of Honor for the better part of a year. Jimmy Jacobs and Tyler Black even managed to win the tag team titles on two occasions. Jimmy Jacobs was looking to expand his group by adding the services of Austin Aries. After several recruiting attempts, including one by Lacey herself, Austin still refused to join the Age of the Fall. In a surprising turn of events Lacey left Jimmy Jacobs to be with Austin Aries. Jimmy Jacobs, already mentally unstable as it is, began to show signs of a full mental breakdown. At Return Engagement Jimmy repeatedly spiked himself in the head and even sat out the main event match against the Vulture Squad.
Several weeks later Jimmy Jacobs and the Age of the Fall ambushed Lacey leading to her departure from Ring Of Honor. Austin Aries tried on several occasions to exact revenge against Jimmy Jacobs but Jimmy constantly ducked the challenge or made it tag team matches. Eventually Austin Aries won matches against Necro Butcher and Tyler Black on back to back shows despite heavy interference to finally get a match against Jimmy Jacobs at Death Before Dishonor 6. Gabe Sapolsky, knowing the intense hatred these two men share and knowing that the match probably wouldn’t end cleanly, took it a step farther and made the match a Fight without Honor. How far will each man go to win the match? How much blood will be shed?
Ring of Honor presents Death before Dishonor 6

Jimmy Bower: Yeah but you know the other members of the Age of the Fall are watching in the back.
Born of a Broken Man by Rage against the Machine plays in the arena as Austin Aries makes his way to the ring to the cheers of the crowd.
Dave Prazak: If any of you folks are expecting to see a display of technical wrestling this isn’t going to be the match for you.
Jimmy Bower: Yeah this match is going to be nothing but sheer brutality.
Austin Aries enters the ring and we send it to Bobby Cruise for the introductions.
Bobby Cruise: The following contest is a Fight without Honor match scheduled for one fall. In this contest there are no disqualifications, no count outs and no time limit. Introducing first in the corner to my right he stands five feet seven inches tall and weighs in at 173 pounds. From Grand Rapids, Michigan this is Jimmy Jacobs.
Jimmy Jacobs raises his cane in the air to the loud boos of the crowd.
Bobby Cruise: And his opponent in the corner to my left he stands 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs in at 205 pounds. From Milwaukee, Wisconsin this is Austin Aries.
Austin Aries raises his arms to the cheers of the crowd. Bobby Cruise exits the ring, the referee enters the ring and calls for the bell and gets out of the way.

After the match Austin Aries can barely stand on his feet. Both men are bloody messes. Jimmy finally slowly gets back to his feet and asks for a microphone as Austin and Jimmy stare at each other in the middle of the ring.
Jimmy Jacobs: I only have one thing to say to you. I hate you for stealing Lacey from me and refusing to join the Age of the Fall. But I can honestly say in front of all these people and in front of the world that I respect the shit out of you.
Jimmy extends his hand to Austin who hesitates for a second and shakes it finally. Jimmy raises the hand of Austin Aries to the cheers of the crowd and exits the ring to give Austin his time in the spotlight.
Dave Prazak: What a show of respect by these two men who just beat each other within an inch of each other’s lives. What a match we just witnessed.
Jimmy Bower: Unbelievable is the only way to describe it. There were so many times I thought the match should have been over. How they kept going after some of the things they went through is beyond me.
Dave Prazak: Don’t forget to pick this up our web site ROHWrestling.com in a few days. Ring of Honor returns to the ring in Chicago September 6th. Good night.

Matt Striker: Christian, for all ages, has retained the ECW Championship! I couldn’t think of a better way to close ECW than with every single ECW superstar getting a shot at the championship, and in the end, Christian walks away still the ECW Champion.
***MAN IN THE BOX***
What? The audience deliver a strong pop as the camera turns to the entrance stage to reveal...yes...the ECW original and former ECW Champion, Tommy Dreamer! Dreamer slaps his chest, yelling out “E - C - W!” before making his way to the ring. Christian looks baffled as Dreamer approaches the squared circle...dressed in his wrestling gear and an ECW t-shirt!
Matt Striker: I cannot believe this! ECW original Tommy Dreamer, the man who was retired a month ago by Zack Ryder, has returned to the Land of the Extreme!
Josh Mathews: A shocking turn of events to say the least. What does this appearance mean, Matt?
Inside the ring, Dreamer is now face-to-face with Christian as the two men share expressions of both intensity and confusion all mixed into one. A few hardcore fans are chanting “ECDub, ECDub!” as the two men stand centre-stage, eye-to-eye. Dreamer has been given a microphone.
Tommy Dreamer: So...this is it, huh? This is it? This is “the end” of ECW? This is the final chapter in the history of Extreme Championship Wrestling?
Dreamer pauses, obviously very emotional in this moment of time. But as his friend Christian puts a hand on his shoulder, Dreamer suddenly swipes it away. Christian looks confused as Dreamer’s emotion morphs into an expression of seriousness.
Tommy Dreamer: No it’s not. This isn’t “it””. This isn’t “the end” of Extreme Championship Wrestling. Because the truth is, Extreme Championship Wrestling died on January 7th, 2001. Extreme Championship Wrestling died with the last-ever Extreme Championship Wrestling pay-per-view, Guilty As Charged. This? This isn’t ECW. This pathetic excuse for a show is nowhere NEAR being E - C - Dub!
The true ECW fans in the crowd cheer whilst everybody else, including Christian, stay silent and continue to stare at Dreamer in surprise and confusion. Meanwhile, Dreamer himself is starting to get more and more riled up.
Tommy Dreamer: For nine years, I gave everything to Extreme Championship Wrestling! Blood, sweat, tears, my heart, my soul, EVERYTHING! I took lashes with Singapore canes, I went through burning tables, I got bloodied by chairs, and I - LOVED IT!! I LOVED PUTTING MY BODY ON THE LINE, EVERY SINGLE NIGHT, BECAUSE I KNEW I WAS A PART OF SOMETHING UNIQUE, SOMETHING INNOVATIVE, SOMETHING THAT COULD NEVER BE DUPLICATED EVER AGAIN!!
Dreamer is now shaking with anger, frustration, but even more so...passion. All the while Christian stays silent, listening intently to the ECW original.
Tommy Dreamer: We didn’t have the big sold-out arenas. We didn’t have the corporate powers, we didn’t have the endless bank of resources, we didn’t have the worldwide names like the Hulk Hogan’s, the Shawn Michaels’, The Rock’s. But damn it, we - didn’t - need them! You know why?? BECAUSE WE HAD THE ROB VAN DAM’S, THE RAVEN’S, THE RHYNO’S, THE SANDMAN’S, AND DARE I SAY IT, THE TOMMY DREAMER’S!! WE HAD THE GUYS WHO WOULD BREAK THEIR FRIGGIN’ NECKS, WHO WOULD TASTE THEIR OWN BLOOD, AND THEY WOULD RELISH IN IT!! THAT’S WHAT WE DID!! WE LIVED ECW!! WE BREATHED ECW!! WE WERE AND WILL ALWAYS BE E - C - W!!!
As some fans continue to cheer him on with loud and audible “E-C-Dub!” chants, Dreamer takes a second to calm down and quite frankly get his breath back.
Tommy Dreamer: There is not a day, not one - day...in my life, where I regret ever being a part of Extreme - Championship - Wrestling. But this company right here? This company, which takes what Paul Heyman, what ALL of us did in the Hammerstein Ballroom, in what I truly believe is the greatest arena in the world, and MOCKS it...this company would be NOTHING without ECW!!
The crowd is now split; some booing Dreamer’s anti-WWE nature and some applauding it, but the “Innovator of Violence” doesn’t stop just yet.
Tommy Dreamer: A long time before there was “Attitude” and “Hardcore”, there was ECW. A long time before Stone Cold and Mankind, there was Superstar Steve Austin and Cactus Jack. Those guys came to this company, they became WWE “superstars”, but deep down they will always - be - EXTREMISTS!!
Another pause from Dreamer, who seems to have let most of his anger go, but still has more to say. Surprisingly, Dreamer stares Christian square in the eye...and smirks. An uncomfortable, untrusting smirk.
Tommy Dreamer: Let me ask you something. You think that when the years go by, people are going to associate ECW with names like, Zack Ryder? William Regal? You think people are going to associate ECW with the name...Christian?
Dreamer pauses again, giving Christian a moment to think, but not enough time to react.
Tommy Dreamer: ...You wouldn’t be a second thought when people remember ECW.
The crowd let out an “Ooh!” as Christian stares back at Dreamer, stone-faced, whilst the crazed Dreamer, eyes wide open, sadistic grin on his face, continues to focus on the ECW Champion.
Tommy Dreamer: You are the champion of a brand which has absolutely no affiliation whatsoever with ECW. You are the champion of a brand which is a cheap, third-rate WWE rip-off show. I mean...look at that belt. Look at it. It makes me SICK!
The boos are starting to get louder as Dreamer focuses more on ripping WWE than praising the original ECW. Dreamer is now pointing at the championship belt, Christian is looking down at it on his shoulder.
Tommy Dreamer: THAT...is NOT...the E - C - W championship. THAT...is a cheap imitation of the true ECW Championship. But just like everything else about this show...it’s - FAKE!
Christian now looks back at Dreamer, a look of annoyance, finally showing on his face, and Dreamer looks happy to see he has gotten to the champ. Seemingly gotten what he aimed for, Dreamer takes a step back, the craziness somewhat fading out of his face.
Tommy Dreamer: This is the end alright. But it’s not the end of Extreme - Championship - Wrestling. This is the end of the biggest mockery in the history of professional wrestling. This is the end of Vince McMahon’s pathetic attempt to take an idea that wasn’t even his and adapt it in his image. So...as...The Heart...and Soul...of Extreme - Championship - Wrestling...I want to say...
Thank you. Thank you for finally ridding us ALL of this nightmare. Thank you for taking this horrid piece of programming and flushing it down the toilet. Thank you for putting the final nail in the coffin of a brand that I regret ever working for. But most of all, thank you...for taking this brand so far away from what the original ECW was...that it’s now impossible for us to be associated with it.
Silence. After a few moments, “Man in the Box” plays again as Dreamer smirks again at Christian, having ranted and made a point on this, the last ever broadcast of ECW (?) on Sci-Fi. Christian continues to stand in the ring, staring at Dreamer, silent. Dreamer finally turns to the crowd and salutes those that were cheering him along, pounding his chest with a flurry of hard fists and yelling out, one more time, “E - C - W!”. Having saluted those loyal supporters of ECW, Dreamer turns to leave the ring-
WHEN CHRISTIAN LASHES OUT AND HITS DREAMER IN THE FACE WITH THE ECW CHAMPIONSHIP BELT!!!
Dreamer falls to the mat in an absolute heap as Christian stands over him, looking more serious than he has ever looked before. A mixed reaction is heard throughout the arena, leaning mostly toward boos, as the ECW Champion stands tall over Dreamer, looking down at him with zero emotion. Alas...there is more to come. Suddenly, Christian grabs a hold of the top rope and unleashes his right foot on Dreamer’s face, POUNDING Dreamer’s forehead with vicious shots! Christian has gone completely BERSERK as he continues to assault Dreamer, trying to tear Dreamer open!! His foot not working, Christian angrily pulls Dreamer up to his knees. Still not saying a word, Christian picks up the ECW Championship belt from the mat and looks down at the exhausted Innovator of Violence. Taking one last moment to pause, Christian sneers at Dreamer...and blasts the ECW original with yet another shot to the face!! Dreamer collapses around and onto his stomach, completely knocked out from the shot. After a moment of zooming in on the serious expression still fixated upon the face of Christian, it turns to Dreamer, who is now shown to have drawn blood. Satisfied with his hideous actions and with an audience now united in booing this turn of events, the last-ever ECW Champion leaves the ring, not looking back once at Dreamer. With no commentary, no entrance music, but an arena full of fans booing him out of the building, Christian walks through the curtain, never to be seen again on Sci-Fi. With no champion left to focus on, the camera now turn back to the ring, where Tommy Dreamer lies in a pool of his own blood. The final image of ‘ECW (?) on Sci-Fi’ sees Tommy Dreamer, the Innovator of Violence, the heart and soul of Extreme Championship Wrestling, unconscious inside the ring.

Re: Be the Booker Showcase Thread
This was a match I wrote for an older thread, same thread as the match I posted on the last page. Quite fond of this match and think it's the best single's match I ever wrote for any event.
Justin Roberts walks back up the entrance ramp as this match shows the tale of the tape’.
Joey Styles: “This is the tale of the tape’ let’s take a look at it and see which one has the possible advantage coming into this matchup.”
(Tale’ of the tape was shown on the tron)
Joey Styles: “Impressive, and now let’s take a look at CM Punk.”
"Samoan Submission Machine" Samoa Joe

Home Town: American Samoa
Height and Weight Status: 6'3" - 280 lbs

Finishing Maneuvers: The Muscle Buster, Modified Tazmission & a Choke Sleeper
Career Highlights: One Time SWF Heavyweight Champion (3 Month reign), One Time ROH World Champion. Comes from a long line of wrestling family heritage with the infamous Samoan Wrestling family
Joey Styles: “Looks to me like Samoa Joe comes in this match as the aggressor with the advantage with not only having a height and weight advantage but quite possibly equal with Punk in the speed department as well. Samoa Joe has also held the big one’ the world title before and CM Punk never has tasted heavyweight championship and he could be getting butterflies right about now.”

Joey Styles: “Here comes the challenger but I can barely hear myself talk with the crowd so much behind Punk.”
MAIN EVENT MATCH
SWF WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Samoa Joe © vs. CM Punk
CM Punk and Samoa Joe shake hands in the middle of the ring as these two best of friends circle the ring multiple times before walking up to each other and trying to psyche each other out. They eventually lock up in a collar-elbow-tie up. Samoa Joe goes down to one knee before coming back up to his feet again and hitting a few elbow shots to the side of the head, onto Punk. Punk then retaliates with a few of his own as they continue to lock onto each other in the middle of the ring like two bulls neither man looks to be moving or budging any time soon. CM Punk goes for an early kick to the mid section trying to wear his opponent down with a hard arsenal of martial arts kicks backing Samoa Joe against the ropes but Samoa Joe just pushes CM Punk back a few steps to the middle of the ring giving him a chance to catch his breath as Punk runs back at him only to get kneed in the lower abdomen. Samoa Joe punches and kicks his way back to the middle of the ring and then gets into a grapple position with Punk and hits a vertical back suplex holding him in the air for quite a few seconds showing his strength. As CM Punk’s back hits the canvas mat Samoa Joe moves on top of him for a pin fall hooking the inside leg for the count. The referee slides down to the mat to make the cover though CM Punk had kicked out literally as soon as it started. Samoa Joe grabbed the hair of CM Punk and yanked’ him up to his feet as he then threw him at the ropes and leant forward on the rebound in hope for a back body drop on CM Punk. While Punk was running at the ropes he then put the brakes on and held onto them. He then walked up to Samoa Joe who hasn’t realized this yet and kicked him hard in the shoulder as he leant forward. Joe just stood up straight and CM Punk ran at the ropes behind him where on the rebound CM Punk went for a flying cross body but only to get hit with a hard power slam to the center of the ring.
Samoa Joe at this time had instead of going for a casual pin fall had sat CM Punk up right’ and had gone behind him and locked him into a rear naked chin hold having his arm and elbow wrapped around CM Punk’s head and throat area in the center of the ring. CM Punk reaches his arm out desperately for the ropes but he is clearly too far away and tries to stand up and move from side to side but Samoa Joe just lays CM Punk down on the mat on his side and wraps his legs around his chest and gets him locked tightly into it. As CM Punk laid on his side grasping for air, he went for the ropes once again though to no avail he was once again too far away to reach it for a rope break. CM Punk refusing to tap though there are not many options he can do as Samoa Joe squeezes his ribs and chest area tight as he holds his head in a sleeper hold position. The referee walks up to CM Punk and raises his hand and then drops it down to the mat to check if there is any life signs in him. The referee then went for a second time though CM Punk’s hand stayed up as he was showing signs of life; CM Punk quickly moved onto his knees with Samoa Joe standing up and holding onto his head with a continuous sleeper hold. CM Punk then grabs Samoa Joe by the head and throws him over head with a snap mare take down putting Samoa Joe on the mat as CM Punk groggily stands back up onto his feet.
CM Punk doesn’t want Samoa Joe to get back up onto his feet and get back into this matchup as he sees Samoa Joe on one knee in the center of the ring. CM Punk runs at him and goes for martial arts hard kick to the chest but Samoa Joe ducks underneath it and then with his head in between CM Punk’s legs he stands up for an electric chair position. As Samoa Joe held CM Punk on his shoulders CM Punk squirmed down Joe’s back and rolled him up with a sunset flip but CM Punk had then gotten reversed and Samoa Joe had put his legs on CM Punk’s shoulders covering him on the mat for the pin fall kicking back on Punk. As the referee is about to make the count CM Punk rolls backwards and as Samoa Joe sat there on the mat CM Punk jumped up onto his feet and then within a blink of an eye had kicked Joe hard in the chest putting his back on the mat and then covering him for yet another pin fall attempt though only getting a one and a half count as Joe had kicked out with authority. CM Punk had stood back up on his feet taking Samoa Joe to a vertical base with him and kicking him in the gut before backing at the ropes and running at him going for a running knee lift but Samoa Joe moved his head out of the way and then had pushed CM Punk from behind at the opposite ropes, on the rebound CM Punk was caught and slammed down to the canvas mat below with belly to belly back suplex. Samoa Joe had gone for the pin fall but the suplex had sent Punk to the corner of the ring and Punk was able to get his leg on the bottom rope to break up the pin fall at the count of one. Samoa Joe stood up and had ran at the ropes behind him on the rebound had dropkicked CM Punk in the side of the head taking him out of the ring through the middle rope as CM Punk was on his knees.
Joey Styles: “This match is coming right in front of my table here folks.”
Samoa Joe had left the ring through the middle rope and had gone out after Punk. Punk then on one knee slowly getting up to his feet was grabbed by Joe and hoisted up to a vertical base though Punk began to fight back with all he got delivering multiple European Uppercuts and Elbow shots to the champion Samoa Joe. Joe was groggy for a moment as Punk grabbed Joe’s arm and went to throw him at the ring steps though Joe was not able to reverse it and Punk hit the big man on the steel steps which almost gave way when Joe made contact with them and tipped over. Punk then grabbed Joe by the head and rolled him into the ring under the bottom rope as Punk a few seconds later went into the ring himself and had hooked the outside leg for the pin fall on Samoa Joe. The referee had made the count; 1…….2. But Samoa Joe had kicked out. When CM Punk had gotten back up to his feet he then had left Samoa Joe there lying near the ropes as he ran at the opposite ropes and on the rebound went for a leg drop. As he went up in the air and was about to drop the legs into the throat of Samoa Joe, Samoa Joe had moved out of the ring back under the bottom rope and to the outside as Punk landed on his ass near the ropes in a whole lot of pain. Joe rolled back into the ring and lifted Punk back onto his feet and took him to the middle of the ring as he then hit a scoop slam on him putting him back down onto the mat before stomping on him for a couple of moments.
Samoa Joe then grabs the leg of CM Punk and goes to lock him into an ankle lock and insert another submission attempt onto Punk though Punk had rolled onto his back and then had kicked Samoa Joe a few feet back against the turnbuckles. Punk then sprang up onto his feet and looked around before running at the turnbuckles where Samoa Joe was standing against and went for a knee to jaw shot on Joe and managed to hit the move taking Joe’s lights out. CM Punk then grabbed onto Joe’s head and moved him to the middle of the ring and jumped up on his feet and attempted to take him down with a bulldog’ though once up in the air Samoa Joe put one hand underneath Punk and drove him down to the mat and Joe put his knee in the way. CM Punk’s lower back went crashing into Samoa Joe’s knee as Punk was in a lot of pain. Punk was then covered for another pin fall as Joe put his elbow across Punk’s face to insert disrespect as the referee went down for the count. 1…………2…. But CM Punk had kicked out barely before the three count was made. Samoa Joe grabbed Punk by the hair and pulled him to one knee before running at the ropes behind him to try and take him down on the rebound. Samoa Joe went for a clothesline though CM Punk had ducked underneath it and had hit a few standing martial art like kicks to the jaw on Joe before lifting him up onto his shoulders and going for the GTS the Go to Sleep.
Joey Styles: “This could all be over right here if he hits this one very devastating move.”
With Joe on Punk’s shoulders Joe had tried frantically to do whatever he could to get away from the GTS as he knew that the end was near. Samoa Joe had then raked the eyes of CM Punk and had slid down the back of Punk and when he had turned around Joe had kicked him in the gut, and had gone for one of his patented maneuvers the Death Valley Bomb with a Cradle. Samoa Joe lifts CM Punk up onto his shoulders and holds him in place for the move and forward a few steps and dives CM Punk’s head and shoulders area into the canvas mat with a hard impact. Samoa Joe hooks the leg for the pin fall as the referee makes the count. 1……….2…… NO! Samoa Joe can’t believe it but CM Punk kicked out of it. The crowd had gone nuts but Samoa Joe is banging his fists on the mat as he seriously is running out of ideas. Samoa Joe stands up for a few moments with his hands against his hips thinking and plotting on what to do next as he looks at Punk on his knees holding onto Joe’s knee pads trying to pull himself up to his feet. Samoa Joe helps him out and grabs him by the arm and then throws him into the turnbuckles, though CM Punk stops half way and reverses it and throws Joe’s back against the turnbuckles. Punk takes a deep breath and runs at the turnbuckles going to clothesline him against them though Joe moves out of the way and as he has his back to Punk in the corner he takes a step forward. And then amazingly hits a CCS Enzi-guri to the side of Punk’s head a jumping version of a Pele’ kick as Punk falls down stomach first into the mat.
Samoa Joe grabs CM Punk by the arm and drags him to the middle of the ring as he then lays against him in exhaustion and has his arm over him in another pin fall attempt to pick up the win and as the referee makes the count CM Punk grabs the arm of Joe and turns him over for a pin fall catching Samoa Joe off guard switching positions for a backslide pin fall but Joe stands up from it after the two count and as does Punk but Joe was waiting for him and runs at him and hits a lariat clothesline take down. CM Punk went spinning in the air doing a 360’ as he gets slammed back down to the mat below. Samoa Joe had went on CM Punk and had gone straight for the attack, sitting in him and pummeling him with numerous jabs to the face as CM Punk covered up boxing style. CM Punk pushes Samoa Joe off of him as CM Punk races up to his feet and Joe runs at him trying to continue to assault on him only to get kicked in the gut and then hit with a hard face planting DDT in the center of the ring. CM Punk then had then picked Samoa Joe up to his feet slowly and had began to take him to school so to speak’ with lots of punches and kicks to Joe’s upper body coming from all directions and making Samoa Joe stand there on spaghetti legs groggy and rocking back and forth. Punk had then kicked his opponent in the gut and had throws him at the ropes where on the rebound he hit an arm drag take down to put him on his side on the mat. CM Punk then holding that left arm of Samoa Joe, Punk had moved on top of him and locked Joe in for an anaconda vice submission hold where Joe refused to tap for a couple of seconds. Samoa Joe had reversed it amazingly and had put his legs over Punk’s head and pulled him down with a head scissors Punk and Joe then had each gotten up to their feet at the same time, Joe was standing in the corner all exhausted and tired out as was Punk as Punk ran at him in the corner going for another knee to the jaw attempt but Joe had ducked underneath it and had grabbed Punk on the second rope in a ‘rock bottom’ position and slammed his head down to the mat with a move which he likes to call the STJOE! Samoa Joe on his knees rolled CM Punk up with both legs for the pin fall and the referee made the count. 1………2……….3!!!!!!
WINNER AND STILL WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION; SAMOA JOE!

Re: Be the Booker Showcase Thread
We go to the back for the last time of the night, as we see John Cena standing with Todd Grisham. Grisham asks what John’s thoughts are as he is about to go into a war with four former world champions all for the NAW Championship. Cena answers as usual, saying how he isn’t worried about anything, and how he is the true champ. Grisham is about to ask another question until Cena cuts him off, and tells the four other men if they want some to come get some.
We go to a video package of the past four weeks to recap the events leading to this match. We see the qualifying matches, the announcement, and the superstars.
NAW Championship | Five Man Challenge
Edge versus John Cena versus Brock Lesnar versus Randy Orton versus Chris Jericho
The bell rings, as all five men give each other the look. Tentatively thinking about who to attack, eventually, the ice is broken as Randy Orton threatens Cena causing him to square up facing Orton, but from behind, Edge gives Cena a boot to the knees making him buckle down, as Rated RKO stomp away on the Chain Gang Commander. The two kick Cena out of the ring, and follow him outside, as its just Chris Jericho, and Brock Lesnar in the ring. The fans begin to realize the amazing confrontation as they begin to applaud, Jericho points at the crowd then at Lesnar with a huge smirk. Lesnar looks on ruthlessly, as he beats his chest. The fireworks are about to begin, the two turn away, and both run to the ropes behind them. Lesnar, with size advantage, is just as fast as the slender Y2J. They rebound off the ropes, and Jericho sees his head coming off so he ducks on oncoming clothesline. Lesnar uses sheer strength to stop right when he passes Jericho, and Jericho tries to hit him with a spinning heel kick, but Lesnar catches him. Jericho boot is being held up, while his other foot, and hands are on the mat. Jericho rolls forward, and causes Lesnar to roll downwards too. Jericho doesn’t hesitate to capitalize on Brock’s position, as he mounts him, and begins to hammer away. Lesnar catches his forearm by Jericho’s fourth punch, as he pushes Y2J off, and gets up to his feet. Now the two hammer away at each other until Jericho snaps on a side headlock. Lesnar does some classic wrestling, as he overpowers Y2J, and pushes him running into the ropes. Jericho bounces off, as Lesnar sets up for probably a spine buster, to bad we never find out as Jericho slid under, and in between Brock’s legs. Brock surprised by this turns around, and gets kicked in the face as he tries to pick Y2J up. Jericho gets up now, and flaunts some HBK tributes by jumping off the ropes with a forearm smash.
The camera goes outside as Cena is being double teamed. Orton, and Edge take turns giving him uppercuts as he is against the fan barricade. The screen divides into two showing Orton Irish Whip Cena face first into the turnbuckle post, and Edge driving Cena’s kidneys into the ring apron. Edge sets up for a suplex onto the steel steps, but calls for Randy’s help. Randy locks in the front-face lock as well, as they measure for the double suplex onto the steel steps. They try lifting, but Cena resists. They try again, but Cena kicks Edge in the gut, and nails Randy with an upper cut. John Cena grabs Randy by the neck, and throws him into the fan barricade, right before running, and delivering Edge face first to the floor with his one handed face buster. John Cena gets up to see the Viper leaning against the fan barricade, facing the fans. He turns around as Cena sends him over with a clothesline into the fan zone. The action is getting hot, as the fans slap Orton on the back, and Cena taunts his arch nemesis from ringside. John Cena looks into the ring as Chris Jericho is running rounds with Lesnar, kicking a mud hole in him while he’s at the corner. Cena slides in the ring, and stalks Y2J from behind. Taunting the crowd, “adjusting their attitudes”. Y2J turns around and see’s Cena. Y2J runs at him for a forearm attack, but Cena hits him with a punch to the gut. Jericho holds his gut, and staggers past Cena, as Cena sets up for his finisher. Jericho turns around to get hoisted up in the air by John Cena in a fireman’s carry. John Cena tries locking in Jericho, as he tries squirming off of his shoulder. Cena eventually gets him under control, but unexpectedly, and amazingly, Edge rolls into the ring, runs to the ropes in front of Cena, bounces off, and spears Cena into the depths of hell. Cena drops Y2J, and falls back, as Edge roars in victory. Edge climbs over Y2J, and hooks the leg, 1...2... Randy Orton breaks the count!
Edge looks at Orton upset, and begins to yell at him. Randy Orton shakes his head, as he gets up to his feet yelling back. The two now begin to shove each other, as the crowd boos the two. Brock Lesnar finishes recovering, and runs at the tandem. The two use some amazing team work, and duck Brock’s forearms. Then at the same time, they grab Brock’s arms from behind, and pull him to the floor, and on his back. The two immediately begin to kick Brock, and stomp on him, double teaming the master of the F-5. Edge picks Brock up, and locks him at his side with a overhead headlock in DDT position. Edge points at Randy, and smiles, as he goes for the Edge-ecution, but Lesnar shows his strength as he picks Edge up, and hit’s a back body drop. Randy Orton see’s Lesnar with a chance of retaliation, but kills it with a shot to his knees, downing Lesnar, then he doubles over, and locks Lesnar in with one of the famous rest locks. While Randy Orton keeps the beast tamed with a rest hold, Edge gets back up, and slaps a restrained Lesnar in the face a couple of times. Edge tells Orton they’re going to neuter the bull, as he rolls outside, and goes to the infamous time keeper’s table, where he shoves our beautiful female announcer to the floor, and picks up the chair. Edge folds it up, and starts for the ring until Chris Jericho attacks him with forearms to the face. Chris Jericho seems to have a surge of energy, as he grabs Edge by the hair & pants, and throws him into the steel steps shoulder first. The steps break into two, as the crowd cheers Y2J on. Chris Jericho tells the commentators to make sure the announcer is okay, and gets back to work on his former partner. Jericho picks up the chair Edge dropped, and considers sliding in the ring, but instead changes his mind after shoving the chair in. Jericho grabs Edge, and sets him up on the barricade as he delivers knife edge chops to the heart of the Rated R Superstar. Jericho begins to taunt Edge, as he pulls him off only to slam him face first into the post. Edge is getting beat, as Jericho sets him up for what seems to be a Codebreaker. Instead, Edge turns around, and pokes Y2J straight in the eyes. Edge in a deadly motion, grabs Jericho by the hair, tucks him in a side headlock, and delivers an Edge-ecution onto the bottom half of the stairs!
In the ring, John Cena pulled Orton off of Lesnar, and began to beat on his arch nemesis. Pounding the former WWE Champion with lefts, and rights, each as hard as the last one. Cena picks Orton up, and tosses him towards the ropes. Orton bounces off into a flying shoulder from the Doctor of Thuganomics! The crowd pops, as Cena sets up for another Attitude Adjustment, this time, he’s delivering the package, as he hoists up Orton, and delivers the F-U! Edge slides in a little too late, but still inflicts damage regardless as he picks up the chair, and delivers a bone shattering shot to the back of the only rapper in the ring. Cena falls to his knees, and right next to Orton, as the crowd boos. Edge see’s the two downed wrestlers, and see’s Jericho climbing the apron, he delivers a spear-like shoulder knocking Jericho off the apron and back into the barricade! Edge checks the ring, and see’s something missing. Edge flips when he notices its Lesnar, who is behind him, ready for war. Edge turns around, and is hammered down by Lesnar, who showers with lefts. Lesnar backs Edge onto the ropes, and then grabs him by the neck, and literally throws him into the corner. Lesnar delivers stomach turning kicks, as he uses the top rope for leverage. Lesnar yells out to the crowd as he lifts Edge up onto the top turnbuckle as if he weighs nothing. Lesnar climbs the second turnbuckle, and starts hammering onto Edge’s forehead for good measure. The human tank, Lesnar, gets ready for the Super-plex, which coming from him, means big trouble for Edge. Lesnar sets up for the move, but Orton saves Edge’s ass, and nails Lesnar with the chair right in the kidneys! Brock Lesnar stays on the second turnbuckle, holding onto Edge. The crowd goes pretty wild with heat, as Orton is damaged goods, as he drops the chair out of his lack of strength. Orton eventually, (very slowly) reaches up, and grabs Lesnar’s trunks. He begins to pull downwards, but Brock as aforementioned is holding onto Edge, whom his holding onto the top rope. Chris Jericho rolls into the ring, and hops into the action fast. He turns Orton around, and throws him over the ropes, then works on Lesnar. Jericho delivers a low blow on Brock Lesnar, which sets Brock up for a easy, and ugly power bomb from the Lionhearted Warrior.
An alignment change seems to be going on, as Jericho is getting popped now by the crowd. Jericho loves it, but stays serious as he grabs Edge by the neck, and tosses some rights at him. Jericho climbs the turnbuckles all the way to no mans land, where he sets up for a gutsy maneuver, the bounce off the ropes hurricanranna! Jericho contests the idea, but it seems that everything’s going to fall down, as John Cena slides into the ring, and hits Y2J in the back. Y2J shares a seat with Edge, as he slowly turns into Cena who is on the second turnbuckle now, but his intentions are clear to be the spot of the night. Cena starts setting Edge up on Jericho, so now the two are in a very awkward postion, as Edge looks like he’s hugging Y2J from behind. Cena pulls the two onto his shoulders at the same time as the crowd just erupts. “CENA” chants blur out, as the Champ is about to possibly become the Champ, like literally. John Cena, makes a huge spot in NAW history as he delivers an F-U from the second turnbuckle to not one, but two people! The crowd goes wild as Cena looks to have lost a lot from the maneuver himself. Cena breathes heavily as he crawls over to Y2J. This seems to be the longest crawl ever, as eventually Cena gets an arm over Chris to get the 1...2...!
NO! ZOMFG, the crowd is mad, as Jericho kicks out! Cena slowly rises his head in shock, as more people begin to boo, and cheer all at the same time. John Cena reaches for the ropes to help get up, as he is too surprised to have any sudden movements. Cena walks over to the fallen Edge, as he teases for the Five Knuckle Shuffle. He tells Edge he cant be seen, and runs to the ropes, he bounces off only to get tripped by Randy Orton, who stood outside. Cena falls on his face, as Orton drags him outside. Randy Orton crotches him from behind, and slides into the ring where Edge is trying to push himself up, but just cant, and Chris Jericho is stirring very slowly. Randy Orton sees Brock Lesnar getting up, as he quickly downs him with a punt to the head! The crowd grows menacing now, as Randy Orton’s attack on Lesnar continues, but he has an ace up his sleeve as he climbs out after Lesnar who rolled outside. Randy Orton walks over towards the steel stairs that are still together, as he kicks the top half off. Then, laying there on the bottom half is a burlap sack. The contents of this bag must be diabolical as Randy Orton looks on with a sinister smile. Randy Orton reaches in the bag, as the front row fans yell curses at him. Orton pulls out a pair of handcuffs, as he turns back to Lesnar. He grabs Lesnar by the neck, and starts hitting him with the handcuffs in the forehead just for some good measure. Orton grabs Lesnar’s forearm, and locks it into the first handcuff, as Lesnar is still unconscious. Randy Orton makes being evil look way to easy, as he snaps on the other cuff onto the bottom rope of the ring! Trapping Lesnar for possibly the rest of the match! Lesnar begins to realize what is going on, as he starts manically pulling away, but not going nowhere, as Randy Orton keeps a safe distance from him.
Randy Orton walks around the ring, and slides in through another side. In the ring, Jericho is pulling himself up, as John Cena comes back into the ring. This match is now a fatal four way, as Edge rushes Cena only to clothesline a whole bunch of air, and get nailed by back body drop! Cena is on fire, as he turns around, and meets Chris Jericho with a tremendous clothesline of his own into the turnbuckles. Jericho stumbles out of the corner, and is planted on the mat with a running one handed bulldog, a signature move these two foes share. John Cena now, realizes that both Edge, and Y2J are parallel on the mat, and Cena goes for the double Five Knuckle Shuffle. Cena does his usual theatrics before running to his left side, and rebounding off the ropes, only to run across the ring, and bounce off the opposite ropes as well. This time, Cena nails the move, and the crowd erupts! John Cena put the hammer down on both nails, as he bounces up ecstatic. Not knowing what to do with himself, and overwhelmed with possibilities. Randy Orton slides into the ring now, as he tightens a pair of brass knuckles on his fist, as he measures John Cena’s cranium. John Cena, with a sixth sense, turns around, and ducks a huge haymaker from Randy Orton, and hoists him up into the air again! Cena looks to make it twice tonight, as he’s going to rearrange Randy Orton’s vertebrate’s with an F-U/Attitude Adjustment. John Cena slams Orton onto the mat with the second F-U of the night!
Orton bounces off the mat due to the tremendous impact, and rolls over on his back. John Cena just has the championship destined for him it seems, as he picks Orton’s leg up by the ankle, and sets up for the STF-U! He locks in the maneuver on Orton, as the crowd goes wild! Randy Orton shrieks in pain, as he is about to crack, but Brock Lesnar is able to reach Cena’s boot, as he pulls Cena off of Orton to interfere with the hold. Cena turns around, and see’s Lesnar’s predicament, and instead of taking it to the former UFC fighter, he drags Orton away from the ropes, and locks in the STF-U once again, but while this was occurring, Lesnar inadvertently gave Y2J a huge window of opportunity, as he picked Edge’s legs up, and locked in his own devastating hold, the Walls of Jericho! Now, two submission holds are being pulled as both superstars are clueless of each others presence, and only have their eyes on the prize waiting outside. Randy Orton shakes as he is about to tap, and Edge pulls his hairs, redder than a tomato. The camera zooms into Orton’s face, as he is about to tapout. He lifts his hand ready to slam the mat, and just as it is coming down, the bell rings early, as Cena lets out a huge breath of exhaustion, and rolls off of Randy Orton. Though the outcome of the match seems to be misunderstood, as John Cena’s arm isn’t raised by a referee, nor is he helped by a referee. All the attention is around one man, and that is the winner of the match, Chris Jericho. The commentators are just as confused, as the announcer gets on the microphone, and makes the call.
Result: Chris Jericho wins via submission
“Break the Walls” by Fozzy hit’s the speakers, as some fans cheer, others boo, and John Cena is speechless. Chris Jericho is awarded the NAW Championship, as he hugs it with all the energy he has left. Chris Jericho climbs the turnbuckles, and poses as he restrains the water works. He climbs down, and passes the very upset Brock Lesnar, and goes up the ramp, wobbly on his feet, and on cloud nine as he victorious. Its madness, as fans begin to leave, and the commentators argue about who really won. The confetti falls from the roof truly making it a night to remember for the NAW Champion, Chris Jericho, as he exits to the back, leaving John Cena in complete shock, Lesnar still cuffed to the ring, and Rated RKO hurt outside the ring. The pay per view ends marking the beginning of NAW.[/font]

Re: Be the Booker Showcase Thread
2nd Match - Trios Tag Team Match
Jushin Liger, Akira Raijin, & CIMA w/Masa Chono Vs. Ultimo Dragon, Dragon Kid, & Tiger Mask IV
Jushin Liger informs his team that he'll be initiating the bout, while Dragon Kid jumps into the ring and prepares himself for the forthcoming encounter with the legend that is Liger. A stalemate occurs, with both men encircling one another, seeking a vulnerable spot. Assessing the situation, Liger remains stoic while anticipating a slip-up from Dragon Kid. The Kid, firm and balanced, attempts a lock up with the legend, but Liger counters and wrenches his arm, twisting it as Kid jumps about in a frantic bid to rid himself of the hold. He performs a front flip with ease and attempts to trip Liger off his feet, but the legend jumps and proceeds to trip Kid instead. Evading, the lil' dragon backflips and is able to escape his opponent's grasp, but the two attempt to one-up each other with a lightning-quick succession of leg trips and pinfalls. The failure of each attempt does nothing to deter either man, however. Dragon Kid rushes forth once more in a final effort to lead the momentum for his team, but Liger catches him off guard with a swift takedown! The Kid stumbles onto the mat, allowing Liger the chance to go for a more methodical approach. A kick to the shin precedes a more potent submission - the indian deathlock.
Keeping Dragon Kid off his feet and on his back - where he's more susceptible to punishment - is the name of the game, as Liger keeps the legs of Dragon Kid in a contorted and uncomfortable position while pulling on them ever so. The legend himself eggs Dragon Kid on, pounding on the mat to encourage him to endure, all the while keeping the hold intact. It's none the more strange, but within moments, he relieves Kid of the anguish. The fans clap as he shows some middling respect, extending his hand for Dragon Kid to grasp. The moment Kid does, however, Liger kicks him in the midsection for good measure and locks his arms around the kid's waist, lifting him up for a gutwrench suplex onto the mat! Such nature compels the audience to boo as Liger keeps his wits about him while Kid rolls out of the ring in humiliation, leaving the spot open for one of his allies. On the outside, Chono shouts in japanese and instructs Liger to keep cool once Tiger Mask IV rushes into the ring. It's quite clear that their prior engagements have not taught Tiger Mask well, for the moment he charges towards Liger, the legend lifts him and pivots him some degrees, slamming his opponent's back onto his knee in a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker!
Chono smirks on the outside, knowing full well Liger has hindered Team Ultimo Dragon's momentum single-handed. Mr. Black Jack instructs Liger to take Tiger Mask apart, and Liger does so without a hint of hesitation, unleashing a rear naked choke on the fourth incarnation of Tiger Mask. Unforgiving, Liger applies pressure while Tiger Mask gasps for some air. Desperate, he rolls Liger over and reaches for the ropes, but Liger attempts to roll him back. Such a futile attempt does not deter Tiger Mask's spirit, and in time, he does indeed grab a hold of the ropes, in which case the referee implores Liger to stop the submission. Having no choice in the matter, Liger heeds the referee's words, but before leaving Tiger Mask alone, he stomps on his head several times, receiving even more boos for such lack of sportsmanship. Backing up, Liger exchanges glances with Ultimo Dragon, and mocks the Dragon for being so idle. He motions for his rival to strike him from his position on the apron, but the Dragon ignores him. Such refusal causes the temperamental Liger to nail him with a right hand, forcing Dragon to take a stand and enter the ring!
The fans cheer as Liger backs up in some false sense of fear as Dragon motions to Liger to come and get some. Shaking his head, the legend rolls out of the ring, allowing CIMA to jump into the ring with great fervor and tussle with the Ultimo Dragon, one-on-one. Fresh and fired up for some action, he performs a superkick out of left field, but is caught within the Dragon's serpentine grasp. Clutching CIMA's leg parellel to the mat, Dragon spins and twists CIMA's captured leg in a dragon screw, causing the former Dragon Gate ace to fall off balance onto the mat. Once his opponent has fallen, Dragon locks in an inverted facelock while hooking his abled arm around CIMA's, pulling back on the neck with a patented dragon sleeper. Again, much like Liger did with Dragon Kid, Ultimo Dragon's wiles compel him to keep CIMA off his feet, as that is where he is most dangerous. Ensnared within the veteran's cold clutches, CIMA endeavors in escaping the hold; he pushes his legs forward and through this position, is curled up atop Ultimo Dragon while the hold is still applied. However, his feet are not aligned with the ropes, so it is to no avail... until Chono rushes over and aids in pulling CIMA's feet towards the ropes. As a result of Ultimo Dragon's elbows being on the mat, the referee sees this as a pinfall, but Dragon Kid comes in and interrupts, breaking up both the hold and the pin.
CIMA rolls out of the ring, his neck suffering from considerable pain. Chono alleviates his suffering with some reassuring, but Dragon Kid richochets off the springboard and lands on both men with a suicide dive, taking them both out! The pace quickens and chaos ensues as Akira Raijin gives it a go and upon entering the ring, releases an asian mist onto Ultimo Dragon's face! The fans jeer as the Dragon is blindsided, his sight obstructed. Laughing, Raijin mongolian chops his opponent in the back of the shoulders and the side of the neck, sending him falling down to a kneeling position. With such an opportune moment presenting itself, the protege of the Great Muta runs towards the opposite ropes and upon rebounding, he nails the Dragon with a high speed roundhouse kick to the side of the head! You'd think the Dragon was given a concussion, as he slumps onto the mat, lifeless and unmoving. Raijin takes advantage and hooks the legs - just a two-count! The fans cheer as Dragon shows an intense determination to see this match through, but Raijin lifts him up and irishwhips him towards the ropes, giving him no time to rest whatsoever. Upon the Dragon's return, Raijin wraps his arms around his torso and lifts him up, chucking him over his head with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex!
Merciless, Raijin continues his assault, unleashing a plethora of stiff kicks to the center of Dragon's spine. Such raw force causes him to retreat to the outside, whereupon Tiger Mask IV comes back into the foreground, refreshed and recharged. As the fourth incarnation of the legend encircles Raijin, the protege of the Great Muta brushes him off and turns his attention to Liger, motioning to tag him in. However, Liger shakes his head in refusal and alerts him to turn around - Raijin is clocked in the shin with a stiff kick from Tiger Mask upon returning his focus. A forearm to the back, a knee to the midsection, an elbow to the shoulder, and a final powerslam, with the head driven to the mat, silences Raijin's arrogance for the time being. A cover is made, but a two-count does not give Tiger Mask the response he wanted. A quick cut-throat gesture to the crowd gives them a signal of what's to come, and once Tiger Mask has lifted Raijin off the mat, he nails him with a pumphandle Tiger Suplex! Cheering can be heard as Raijin is bridged over for the pinfall attempt... Liger comes in and interrupts the pinfall! Booing can be discerned as Liger proceeds to throw Tiger Mask out of the ring via the tights. Leaning against the ropes, he points at the fallen Tiger Mask and shakes his head in disapproval, but is soon thwarted and done in. The perpetrator? Dragon Kid. Learning from his rather short encounter with Liger in the beginning stages of the match, he jumps up and wraps his legs around Liger's head, and with some effort, propels him off the ropes with a headscissors takedown.
Liger drops off the apron and lands head first onto the flooring outside of the ring, where Tiger Mask awaits. However, no amount of pain can keep him down, as he soon regains his footing and his composure. Alas, such recovery is a waste, as Dragon Kid, using the momentum of the ring ropes, slingshots off the top rope and corkscrews in the air, colliding with Liger on the outside with a corkscrew senton! The fans cheer as the Kid rolls off of Liger upon impact and stands back on his feet, unscathed. Raising his arms, he basks in the cheers of the crowd, but is knocked off his feet due to a shoulder block to the back from an irritated Masa Chono! In japanese, he lambasts and curses Dragon Kid before stomping on him with no hint of reservation. Tiger Mask sees this as a blatant cheap shot and takes no prisoners, clocking him with a stiff forearm smash, sending him down to the hard surface. Meanwhile, on the inside, CIMA and Ultimo Dragon become the legal men, squaring off once again. Seeing this as a chance to right his previous mistake against the Dragon, CIMA waits for him to strike instead of doing so himself. Such a method becomes clear to the Dragon, and thus he encircles his protege, ever confusing him with multiple 360° movements. Fortune, however, does not favor CIMA, as once the two lock horns in a collar-and-elbow tie up, the Dragon traps him in a side headlock.
CIMA attempts to break the hold, and does so in throwing his former mentor against the ropes, but the tried and true vigor within Dragon begins to swell; after he jumps and rolls over CIMA upon return, he shoot kicks him in the shin and follows up with a spinning heel kick to the side of the head. Once his former student has landed on the mat, he kips up, but CIMA imitates this and does so as well! In a stand still, the fans cheer for both men's lack of abandon. CIMA and Ultimo Dragon exchange glances with one another; an aura of mutual respect consumes the student as he stands across, reposed and idle, from his former master. The respect, however, soon dissipates in favor of contempt as CIMA charges, but his momentum backfires as Dragon evades, forcing CIMA to collide with the turnbuckle! Having impeded his former student, Ultimo Dragon stiff kicks him several times before lifting him atop the top turnbuckle. After doing so, he climbs the turnbuckle himself and stands behind CIMA before twisting around and drilling him to the mat with a Dragonsteiner! The fans cheer as neither man can stand after such an impact from the top rope. Dragon Kid and Tiger Mask IV encourage and clap for Ultimo Dragon from the apron and implore the audience to do the same, and indeed, the audience chants, "Let's go Dragon!"
Upon hearing such overwhelming support, Dragon closes in on CIMA and covers him... a kick out at two! Surprised and dumbfounded, he questions the referee's count, but instead of procastinating and complaining, he persists in keeping CIMA parellel to the mat, following up with a figure four necklock, again exasperating the damaged neck of his former student. From the apron, Liger urges CIMA to endure, and endure he does, even if the aggravation is overbearing. As Ultimo Dragon compresses the air flow in CIMA's neck, the former Dragon Gate ace attempts to fight it off, but can't seem to find the drive to do so. He doesn't capitulate, however, and instead grabs Dragon's legs and tries to keep them at a distance from his neck. With effort and patience, he relieves himself of the hold and counters with a submission of his own - an inverted cloverleaf! Shouting in japanese, CIMA applies pressure to the spine of the Dragon as he attempts to avenge his prior mishap. The hold, however, doesn't last long, as his victim finds solace in grasping the ropes, in which case the referee warns CIMA to halt his actions. The referee begins counting for a disqualification as the warning is disregarded in favor of pursuing more punishment. Once the count reaches three, CIMA releases the hold, which causes the Dragon to roll out of the ring in discomfort, giving Tiger Mask the chance to avenge him.
Upon entering the ring, the fourth incarnation of the legend bombards CIMA with stiff shoot kicks to the knees and follows up with a thrust kick to the torso with the sole of his foot. CIMA stumbles onto his knees, but is given no reprieve, as Tiger Mask succeeds with an immediate spinning heel kick to the head, sending his opponent down unto the canvas. A pinfall follows, but CIMA kicks out at two! The former Dragon Gate ace, through all the headshots, still has a bit of fight in him, but the Tiger prowls in the background, like a predator in wait. As CIMA comes to, the fourth incarnation of the legend places him right hand on CIMA's back and nails him with rapid fire kicks to the side of the head, each subsequent shot more potent than the last. With so much force behind the final kick, CIMA is sent rolling across the mat, his head throbbing and compulsing. Before Tiger Mask could finish the job, however, CIMA rolls out of the ring. Masa Chono, tired of remaining on the sidelines, climbs up on the apron and heckles Tiger Mask, which prompts the referee to deal with him. This distraction leaves Tiger Mask susceptible to a vicious running boot to the side of the head, thanks to Akira Raijin!
The red ghost's teeth seethe, his maniacal smile hinting no doubt as to his demented nature. The master has taught the student well. Wasting no time, he goes for the pinfall, but the Tiger kicks out at two! Without hesitation, the protege of the Great Muta lifts up the fourth incarnation of the legend and strikes him with a stiff forearm shot to the head, following up with an open palm chop, and another, until the Tiger becomes disillusioned and staggers to the side. In such a state, the Tiger is irishwhipped towards the ropes, but upon return, he is elevated and pummeled with a blunt chop to the head while descending! The fans make some noise as Tiger Mask crashes down onto the mat, but the red assailant continues to attack him, choking him with his thumbs pressed against his neck. A twisted delight consumes Raijin, his windows of vision ever widening and his mouth salivating as he deprives his victim of air. The referee attempts to break up the chokehold, but Raijin continues on, possessed. As a result, the referee begins counting to five, but a call from Liger compels the red ghost to stop the illegal maneuver and take a breather. The match reaches its climax here...
Finale: The brisk pace of the earlier engagements prove to be nothing more than warm-up for the finale. Yet again, as if due to divine intervention, both Liger and Dragon Kid are standing opposite each other. Liger slaps his shoulders and motions for Dragon Kid to bring it. Such provocation does not go unnoticed, for the Kid is eager to show this insidious legend a thing or two about respect. He rushes towards him in a frenetic bid to silence him, but Liger goes for a lariat! It's a no go, as the Kid ducks and rebounds off the opposite ropes, but Liger himself evades with a quick fall to the mat, which causes the Kid to jump over him and rebound again off the ropes, but upon return, he jumps on Liger, wrapping his legs around his neck in a headscissors position, but instead of one revolution, there are several, and on the final one, he somehow reaches over and maneuvers around Liger's head with his arms and plants him with a vicious tornado DDT onto the mat! The fans cheer as Liger's head connects with the mat, leaving Dragon Kid to afterwards roll and flip back up to a vertical base.
Such athleticism leaves the fans wanting more, but he soon comes undone as Akira Raijin enters the ring and dispatches him via an unexpecting running reverse STO, driving his face onto the mat! Booing ensues as Raijin hisses and stomps on his fallen opponent in aggression like a vehement viper, but the snake soon comes to fear the ferocious tiger, for the fourth incarnation of the legend sweeps into the ring, intent on cleaning house. Out of impulse, Raijin backs up against the turnbuckle, but out of nowhere comes CIMA for the rescue; he jumps off the springboard, looking to hit Tiger Mask with a leg lariat, but the resourceful tiger catches him in mid-air, latching onto his right leg and arm! In succession, he locks his left arm around CIMA's right arm in a chickenwing and wraps his right arm around CIMA's head and lifts him up, falling backwards in order to drill the top of his opponent's head onto the mat with a crossface chickenwing suplex, which garners a cheer from the crowd!
Following this hellacious maneuver, CIMA rolls out of the ring, incapacitated for the time being. Meanwhile, Raijin attempts a clothesline to take out Tiger Mask, but the tiger ducks and instead, dropkicks the protege of the Great Muta, which sends him over the ropes and out of the ring! Undeterred, Akira Raijin regains a degree of footing upon landing, but Tiger Mask is quick to action; with catlike reflexes, he slingshots off the ropes upon sensing Raijin's return to a vertical position, and collides on top of him with a slingshot somersault plancha! The fans pop as both men crash on the ringside floor. As the chaos subsides, one man enters the ring to combat Jushin Liger - his longtime rival, Ultimo Dragon. The planets align for this one moment, as this is the first time the two have crossed paths in the match since. Liger cracks his knuckles and encircles the awakened Dragon with patience and precision, calculating his movements down to each individual joint movement. The once sleeping Dragon, however, remains ever calm, cool, and collected; he is but still, himself attempting to find a vulnerable spot in Liger's movements.
After some deliberation, the two lock up in a collar-and-elbow tie-up, but Liger outmaneuvers the Dragon and wraps his arms around his opponent's torso. With some momentum, he pushes the Dragon towards the ropes, but as he attempts to roll him up, his rival grabs onto the ropes, leaving Liger to stumble, but not for long. The ultimate Dragon rebounds off the ropes, but Liger falls to his stomach, allowing Dragon to jump over him and once again rebound off the opposite ropes. Upon return, however, Liger grabs a hold of his arms and lifts him up with his legs, resulting in a sunset flip. The Dragon is propelled into the air and rolls over Liger, but lands on his feet! Both men continue to have their hands clutched together, however, and both men are bent backwards with their spines parellel to the mat, neither supine. In such an awkward position, both men proceed to stand up, still within each other's grasp. Once the rivals are in a vertical position, the hold is released! Liger makes the first move, nailing Ultimo Dragon with a chop across the chest, following up with a subsequent irishwhip towards the ropes.
Their encounter quickens pace as the Dragon makes a surprising backflip leap off the springboard and connects with an inverted facelock upon reaching Liger, driving his head back-first down onto the unforgiving mat with a modified Asai DDT! Such precision garners a roaring cheer from the crowd! Not a moment too soon, he hooks Liger's legs for the pinfall, but obtains just a two-count as a result of interference from Akira Raijin! The crowd boos as Raijin lifts the Dragon up, locks in a standing armbar and finishes with a lariat takedown for good measure! The referee tries to control the situation, but Raijin just shakes his head and smiles in a demented fashion. Not all hope is lost, however, for Dragon Kid enters and takes justice into his own hands, running towards Raijin and jumping forth, locking in a headscissors before taking him down with an armdrag! Rolling out of the ring, the protege of the Great Muta does not escape Dragon Kid's advances, as the Kid launches himself off the top rope and lands on Raijin with a moonsault!
The crowd eats up the action as Jushin Liger recuperates and takes notice on a fallen Ultimo Dragon. Ever encroaching, he signals a quick cut-throat gesture, receiving a mixed reaction from the fans. He places his rival between his legs, lifts him up high, and slams his back hard upon the mat with a patented Liger Bomb, or a sitout powerbomb! The Dragon is pinned!
1............................ 2............................ NO!
Through a stroke of luck or perhaps karma, Ultimo Dragon kicks out! Stunned, Liger pounds on the mat like a spoiled child in anger and frustration. The crowd cheers and chants "Let's go Dragon," as Liger's penultimate rival, with painful effort, crawls towards redemption. Meanwhile, on the other hand, Liger wallows in disbelief as he attempts to ascertain the meaning behind this foul-up. Shaking his head, he rushes towards the Dragon in a blind rage, but is subdued with a unsuspecting small package!
1............................ 2............................ Liger uses Dragon's own momentum against him and rolls him over for his own roll-up!
1............................ 2............................ 3! Liger and his team steals it!
Winners: Jushin Liger, Akira Raijin, & CIMA @21:41
Author's Note: IMO, this tops what I've done thus far. I applied what I know of puro and lucha libre, and meshed it together for this match. I had fun writing it, and I hope it's well received. It's the first full match I've written in quite some time. You'll have noticed some homages and allusions to past puro matches involving the combatants in the match, so I hope no accusations of "OMG plagiarism" come up because it's intentional. Hope it was a good match - I tried to make it as meaningful as I could without too much reliance on spots, but I did want it fast paced throughout with little slow moments. Could that have hurt the match's structure? Sure, but I like it how it is.

Re: Be the Booker Showcase Thread
Wrote this portion of a PPV a few months back for a former BTB I was in but never got around to posting this, which I think it was actually pretty OK, although never finished entirely. :PWe cut to the ring where Tony Chimel is standing by as the bell tolls.
Tony Chimel: Ladies and gentlemen … the following contest is scheduled for one fall and is for the Women’s Championship!
“Glamazon” hits the speakers as ‘The Glamazon’ Beth Phoenix steps out onto the stage to a small amount of booing. Phoenix taunts and then heads down towards the ring.
Tony Chimel: Introducing first … from Buffalo, New York … she is the challenger … ‘The Glamazon’ Beth Phoenix!!!
Phoenix grabs the bottom rope and pulls herself onto the ring apron before taunting and then entering the ring. She circles the ring, awaiting the Women’s Champion. “Paparazzi” hits and the crowd begin cheering as the Women’s Champion, along with the numerous paparazzi photographers, steps out onto the stage.
Tony Chimel: And her opponent … from Los Angeles, California … she is the WWE Women’s Champion … Melina!!!
Melina continues to make her way down towards the ring, adoring the fans cheering and the photographers, taunting with her Women’s Championship as Phoenix looks on. Melina reaches the ringside area, makes her way up the steel steps, and onto the ring apron. She turns her back towards Phoenix as she taunts for the paparazzi one last time before she does her signature split but PHOENIX RUNS TOWARDS MELINA AND FORCEFULLY THROWS HER OFF THE APRON~!!
The crowd’s excitement turns into boos as Melina falls face first onto the arena floor as Phoenix hurriedly exits the ring. Phoenix stomps down on Melina repetitively as the little kids at ringside scream at Phoenix while the paparazzi people run away. Phoenix lifts Melina up and crashes her into the fan barricade, with her ribs taking the damage. Phoenix continues to stomp away at Melina as the referee tries to intervene and stop the brutal attack as he screams for her to get in the ring and start the match.
Phoenix forces Melina to her feet by pulling her hair. She throws Melina right into the steel ring post on the outside before pulling her by the hair over towards the announce tables. Phoenix rams Melina’s head into the RAW announce table and then shoves her into the ring. The referee has no choice but to call for the bell.
Melina © vs. Beth Phoenix
Phoenix enters the ring and we are finally underway. Melina is still lying on the ring mat, with her extra entrance fur jacket still on, recovering from Phoenix’s brutal pre-match attack. Phoenix stands above Melina, taunting her, and proceeds to literally rip her fur jacket off of her. Phoenix then grabs hold of the Women’s Championship and gazes at it before laying it in the ring corner.
Phoenix lifts Melina up and shoves her into the nearby ring corner. Phoenix proceeds to ram Melina’s ribs into the ring post over and over until the referee warns her to back off. Phoenix backs away from Melina but Melina just falls to the ring mat. Phoenix gets out of the ring, grabs a microphone, and then re-enters the ring. She stands over Melina and raises the microphone to her lips…
Beth Phoenix: Is this what you wanted, Melina!? I gave you a warning two weeks ago to not cross my bad side! And last week, I gave you one more chance but you decided to attack me! And tonight Melina, I’m gonna make you pay for it!
Phoenix throws the microphone on the mat and then goes for the pin. 1 … … 2 … … Melina actually kicked out!! Phoenix cannot believe it! Phoenix lifts Melina up and locks her into the overhead Gutwrench backbreaker rack! Melina is screaming out in pain as loud as she ever has! Phoenix finally let’s go of Melina and throws her down to the mat. Phoenix has a twisted look in her eye and then proceeds to ram her foot right into Melina’s ribs, the force of the kick flipped Melina over onto her belly! The referee gets in Phoenix’s way and tells her to back away, the referee checks on Melina and then quickly gets to his feet and yells for medics.
Numerous medics come running out from the backstage area as the referee screams for the timekeeper to ring the bell.
Phoenix stares on with that twisted look still across her face as a few medics roll out a stretcher. A few noticeable road agents such as Arn Anderson, Dean Malenko, and Pat Patterson run out towards the ring and aid the medics by putting Melina onto the stretcher. The referee tells Phoenix to stay away from Melina as the medics strap Melina onto the stretcher. After a moment of all the medics and the road agents talking amongst themselves they begin rolling Melina up the ramp as the crowd applauds her.
Jim Ross: This is just wrong on all levels, folks. Melina could be seriously injured right now and Beth Phoenix doesn’t give a damn. She could have broken ribs for Gods sake.
Todd Grisham: Nobody said the WWE would be easy, J.R.-
Jim Ross: To hell with that, Todd, that woman is injured and Beth Phoenix had full responsibility.
We cut away as a video package begins.

Zack Ryder: You know it!
We return to Bragging Rights in Team SmackDown’s backstage locker room. Batista and Rey Mysterio are talking amongst themselves while Kane stands across from them, trying to be his usual menacing self. Suddenly, Big Show and Chris Jericho walk into the room and everything becomes silent as Mysterio, Kane, and Batista stare on at the Unified Tag Team Champions.
Chris Jericho: Gentlemen, tonight is the night. It’s the night that we’re going to prove that SmackDown is the superior brand within the WWE and the most dominate force in sports entertainment thanks to yours truly. I built this team from the ground over the last few weeks and I am proud to say that I have a team worthy of standing by my side. All of those degenerates and leach worms on Team RAW will know that we mean business when we beat them tonight. Let me just tell all of you one thing, if you get in my way tonight, you will pay. I am the best this team has to offer alongside ‘Show and we will be the ones to lead this team to victory.
Batista laughs to himself as Jericho turns his attention to him.
Chris Jericho: What are you laughing at?
Batista: You. I’ve been stuck listening to you say the same stuff week in and week out. Lemme tell ya’, ‘captain’, I really don’t give a damn if anybody on Team RAW eliminates you because they’ll be doing us a favor … but, if it needs to be, I’ll be the sole survivor tonight and I will lead this team to victory, and I’ll prove that SmackDown is better than RAW.
Jericho stares intently at ‘The Animal’ with a look of anger in his eyes until Kane steps in front of Batista and locks eyes with him.
Kane: You’re funny, Batista. There’s an old saying that I know … “actions speak louder than words”. And I don’t think you can do that because all of us know that I’m the most dominate force on SmackDown. I crush and demolish everything standing in my way … and if that includes you, so be it. You won’t be leading this team to victory … because I will.
Batista and Kane continue to stare at each other very closely, both men breathing hard due to their increasing anger. Rey Mysterio tries to get in between Batista and Kane and begins to speak…
Rey Mysterio: Dave, Kane, c’mon guys, no need to argue right now. We need ta’ be focused on ‘da match ta’ night because I’m gonna be ‘da one to beat Team RAW.
Kane, Mysterio, and Batista begin to argue, rather loudly, amongst one another as Jericho and Big Show look on, not knowing what to do. Total chaos erupts in the Team SmackDown locker room as Batista, Kane, and Mysterio continue to argue while Jericho screams at everybody and Big Show just stands there doing nothing. Suddenly, we hear the door leading to the arena hallway open and everyone becomes silent. All five men stare at something, or someone, out of the camera’s view. Suddenly, the person’s boots come into the camera’s view. It’s a basic black pair of wrestling boots, with “AD” in white text engraved in the side of the boots. The camera then focuses on the members of Team SmackDown as Jericho begins to speak…
Chris Jericho: Gentlemen, allow me to introduce to you the sixth member of Team SmackDown.
We cut away as another video package begins.
The screen is black. Suddenly, white italic text reading “Summerslam | 8.23.09” pops up before we see a clip of Jeff Hardy, the World Heavyweight Champion at the time, standing across from the challenger at that time CM Punk.
We fast-forward to the ending of the match where CM Punk is celebrating with his newly-won World Heavyweight Championship as his music blares in the background. Suddenly, we are taken back to that very moment as we see the lights cut off.
Narrator: ...It was the night…
We see a clip where the lights had cut back on to see THE UNDERTAKER lying in the spot that Jeff Hardy had been lying in as Punk stares on.
Narrator: …That he returned.
We see a clip of The Undertaker nailing a Chokeslam to the new World Heavyweight Champion. The screen returns to it’s black setting when italic white text pops up again, this time saying “SmackDown | 8.28.09”. We fast-forward and see clips of various hot moments during the Steel Cage Match between CM Punk and Jeff Hardy before we see a short clip of Hardy saying his ‘goodbye to the WWE Universe for now’.
Narrator: …It was … time … for the Demon of Death Valley … to reclaim the World Heavyweight Championship…
The screen is black once again as “Breaking Point | 9.13.09” pops up into view. We see a clip of CM Punk and The Undertaker standing across the ring from one another before we see fast-paced clips all throughout the match. Finally, we see Theodore Long come out onto the stage and declare the match to be restarted before we see what is now known as ‘The 2nd Screwjob’. We see Undertaker staring intently at the fleeing CM Punk as the screen fades to black again. We return with a clip of The Undertaker abducting Theodore Long on the SmackDown after Breaking Point before the screen fades to black again…
Narrator: He was ‘screwed’ out of the World Heavyweight Championship … but the Demon of Death Valley continued the pursue…
“Hell in a Cell | 10.4.09” pops up on the screen before we see a clip of The Undertaker taunting with the World Heavyweight Championship after his victory over CM Punk.
Narrator: At Hell in a Cell … The Phenom returned to his throne…
We then see various clips of the various ‘mind games’ The Undertaker played on the former champion in a fast-paced manner as a church-type production theme plays in the background.
Narrator: Tonight … it is all on the line. The Demon of Death Valley … The Straightedge Superstar … … … who will … walk out … champion.
We cut to the arena where we see RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff and SmackDown General Manager Theodore Long sitting at ringside. We see a trophy sitting in between them.
Jim Ross: It is finally time, folks! Both General Managers are sitting here at ringside to see which brand will have the ‘bragging rights’ once it’s all said and done! And as you can see, folks, a trophy will be given to the winning team as they leave with the ‘bragging rights’.
Jerry Lawler: No offense towards you J.R., but RAW is the A-show and Team RAW will prove it right now! And tonight, Theodore Long is gonna lose his job!
Jim Ross: It’s in your dreams, King; Team SmackDown is going home tonight victorious. Let’s take it to Howard Finkel for the introductions…
We cut to the ring where WWE Hall of Famer and former ring announcer Howard Finkel is standing in the center of the ring with a microphone in hand.
Howard Finkel: Ladies and gentlemen … it is now time for the first ever six on six RAW versus SmackDown Elimination Tag Team Match!!! Now in this match, it will continue until one team has been entirely eliminated and the winning team will leave tonight with the ‘bragging rights’! If Team SmackDown loses, General Manager Theodore Long will be fired!
“Break It Down” blasts through the PA system as the crowd hysterically jump to their feet and go wild!! Team RAW comes running out onto the stage, playing to the crowd and living up the moment, except for Jack Swagger, who has a sour look spread across his face. Kingston, MVP, and DX continue to play to the crowd while Swagger just walks down the ramp with the sour look still across his face.
Howard Finkel: Introducing first … making their way to the ring … representing Monday Night RAW … the team of D-Generation X, Kofi Kingston, ‘The All American American’ Jack Swagger, and M – V – P!!!
The members of Team RAW, except the bitter Jack Swagger, continue to head down the ramp, high-fiving fans at ringside before entering the ring.
Jerry Lawler: Look at Team RAW, Michael! The crappy team SmackDown put together doesn’t even measure up to ‘em!
D-Generation X’s music dies down but the crowd is still red hot! The crowd continues to chant “DX! DX! DX!” while Team RAW taunt. The crowd finally calms down as Triple H and Shawn Michaels both receive microphones.
Triple H: Pittsburgh … … are you ready?
The crowd pops for DX.
Triple H: I know you can do better than that, c’mon! Pittsburgh … … … I said ARE YOU RRRREEEEAAAADDDYYYYY!?!?!?
The crowd erupts into cheers while DX continue to play to the crowd.
Triple H: We are finally here! We are finally at Bragging Rights! I mean, this whole RAW versus SmackDown vendetta has been going on week in and week out … well … three weeks actually, but that’s not the point! We’ve seen Qualifying Matches, we’ve seen Chris Jericho talking trash every chance he gets, we’ve seen us get the upper hand, we’ve seen SmackDown get the upper hand, we’ve seen Kane and Batista forming an “I’m a big man hear me roar” alliance, we’ve seen Swagger be the All American Loser, we’ve seen brawls, we’ve seen fights, we’ve seen me getting powerbombed on top of a car, we’ve seen Shawn putting Jericho through a table, we’ve seen everything for the past three weeks! And it comes down to this match here tonight because we know it, you know it, ‘Vintage’ Michael Cole knows it … we are leaving tonight with the ‘bragging rights’!
The crowd pops for Team RAW. Hunter grins and then begins to speak again…
Triple H: Moving on … everybody has been asking us all the way up to now who our mystery partner is. They’ve asked who we have in store. Who could possibly be a part of Team RAW? Ladies and gentlemen … children of all ages … our partner is here tonight … and please allow me to introduce him to all of you. Ladies and gentlemen … the sixth member of Team RAW…
“Badass” by Shiftkit hits the PA system as the debuting Nigel McGuinness, wearing a leather coat and a pair of red trunks, heads out of the curtain and onto the stage to a small face reaction from the crowd. Nigel raises his left arm in the air as some form of taunt before heading down the ramp and into the ring. The music dies down as Nigel stands alongside the other members of Team RAW. Shawn walks over to him and gives him a microphone.
Nigel McGuinness: You may not know me yet but you shall soon. My name is Nigel McGuinness. Although you may not know this, I’ve worked all throughout the world for eleven years to make it to tha’ WWE. I worked in every promotion that was around. I’ve been a World Champion numerous times. I’ve held gold around my waist more than you can imagine. And it’s because I’m that damn good. You see; I’ve finally made it to tha’ WWE after years of being the best everywhere else. And tonight starts a new chapter in my life. Tonight starts my reign at the top of the industry. And my first step is to destroy the pukes that are on Team SmackDown. And after I accomplish that, it will only be a matter of time until I become the World Champion…
The crowd pops for McGuinness as he hands the microphone back to Shawn. Triple H smirks and then begins to speak…
Triple H: Well with that in mind, I think we should wrap this promo up … everybody get in position. Nigel, you don’t have to because you’re new around here.
Hunter, Shawn, Kingston, and MVP crouch down into position while McGuinness stares on. Swagger just stands there, doing nothing but sulking.
Triple H: Now … for the thousands in attendance … for the millions watching at home only on pay-per-view … and for Team SmackDown because, well, we’re about to kick their asses … … … LLLLEEEEETTTTTT’SSS GEEEETTT REAAADDDYYY TO SUCK ITTTTTTT!!!
The crowd goes wild and cheer along with Triple H. Hunter looks over at Swagger and points towards him. Swagger notices Hunter pointing at him and he doesn’t look happy. Shawn walks over to him and gives him the microphone. Team RAW waits but Swagger doesn’t do anything. Shawn walks back up to Swagger and whispers in his ear but Swagger tosses the microphone back into Shawn’s hand. Shawn shrugs and starts speaking…
Shawn Michaels: … And if you’re not down with that, we’ve got two words for ya’!!!
Right when the crowd gets their cue “Crank The Walls Down” interrupts them as it blasts through the PA system. The Unified Tag Team Champions Chris Jericho and Big Show head out onto the stage alongside Rey Mysterio, Batista, and Kane while Team RAW look on.
Howard Finkel: And their opponents … representing Friday Night SmackDown … the team of the WWE Unified Tag Team Champions Chris Jericho and the Big Show, Rey Mysterio, ‘The Animal’ Batista, and ‘The Big Red Monster’ Kane!!!
The members of Team SmackDown continue to make their way down the ramp before entering the ring and coming face to face with Team RAW as JeriShow’s music dies down.
Chris Jericho: You know what, DX!? I’m tired of this idiotic nonsense! Your entire team consists of hypocrites, degenerates, and leach worms! I’ve got two words of my own for ya’ … … RAW SUCKS!!!
The pro-RAW fans boo Jericho while all the members of Team RAW, except Jack Swagger, grin at Jericho’s words.
Chris Jericho: And ya’ know what else I have, DX, not only do I already have a team worthy of standing by my side but my mystery partner is a thousand times better than that little punk. My mystery partner is also a former World Champion, he holds gold wherever he goes, and maybe one day he’ll leave this ring with the legacy that yours truly holds. Now that I think about it, both Nigel and Shawn know this man very closely. So allow me to introduce the sixth member of Team SmackDown…
“Love and War” by Drowning Pool hits the speakers in the arena as the debuting Bryan Danielson, wearing the same boots as earlier with a more semi-colored pair of trunks, steps out through the curtain and onto the stage. The camera spots the other newcomer McGuinness staring directly at Danielson with a mere look of anger in his eyes but we cut away back to Danielson as he makes his way down the ramp.
Jim Ross: That—that’s Bryan Danielson … ‘The American Dragon’! That young man is one of the best in the world today!
Jerry Lawler: And if I’m correct J.R., he has battled Nigel McGuinness all over the world for the past few years! And Shawn Michaels trained him!
Jim Ross: I thought I would never say this, folks, but this match just went up another level! This match is even more personal! It’s gonna be trainer versus trainee, enemy versus enemy!
Jerry Lawler: It sure did, J.R., but Team RAW also has a sixth member and his name is Nigel McGuinness! Don’t think that he’s going to go down without a fight, J.R.!
Danielson high-fives some fans at ringside and then enters the ring and stands alongside Team SmackDown. Danielson and McGuinness lock eyes and both step face-to-face as the music dies down. Danielson and McGuinness trade words until both men’s team captains bring them towards their respective corners. Danielson and McGuinness continue to gaze at one another as they exit the ring and get on the outside.

Re: Be the Booker Showcase Thread
Backstory: This promo is from a WWE BTB I started working on out of boredom that never made it to anything past a document on my computer. The story is WWE merged with TNA in 2008, building to a stacked Wrestlemania 25 card. The Royal Rumble winner, Samoa Joe, had defeated the mega heel World Champion Triple H at Wrestlemania, even after being roughed up at the beginning of the show by Triple H's new Evolution crew, CM Punk and Chris Masters. "The Legend Killer" Randy Orton lived up to his moniker by beating "The Icon" Sting in his first Wrestlemania appearance. The TNA head booker at the time of the merger, Paul Heyman, is the General Manager of Raw.
Joe: Last night… (He pauses to soak in his big accomplishment as he talks about it) last night was the single greatest night of my career.
(Pop; small Joe chant break out, which Joe lets die down before he continues)
Joe: Last night, I got the opportunity to do what I love to do on the grandest, most extravagant stage in this business. I got to headline Wrestlemania!
Joe: Not only that, but I got to show all the doubters, all the naysayer, that I can win the big one. I climbed the mountain, and I pulled out all the stops to become your new World Heavyweight Champion.
(More cheers as Joe proudly holds his newly won title over his head)
Joe: And when I won this title, when I pinned Triple H right in the middle of the ring, I started a new era here on Monday night Raw. No longer will you have a champion who relies on gang assaults and underhanded tactics. No longer will you have a champion who has his boys wear down his challengers for him. No longer will you have a champion who uses his family connections to keep the title around his waist!
Joe: As long as I am WWE Champion, this title will be defended with the honor and dignity that a true champion should have!
Joe: Triple H was not a champion; Triple H was nothing more than a man with a belt.
Joe: See it’s high time for guys like Triple H, guys who work harder backstage than they do in the ring, to MOVE OUT OF THE SPOTLIGHT!IT'S TIME FOR YOUNG, HUNGRY GUYS TO TAKE CENTER STAGE!
(Yet another huge pope)
Joe: Triple H, like it or not, you got beat fair and square.
Joe: The cheating didn’t work, the corner-cutting didn’t work, Punk and Masters trying to take me out DIDN'T WORK!
(Pop; the fans are loving this guy!)
Joe: You did every dirty trick in the book, but in the end, when the dust settled and the smoke cleared…you lost.
(More big cheers)
Joe: But Triple H, I’m not out here to rub it in your face. No no no. I’m out here to put you and the entire Raw locker room on notice. I showed what I can do last night against Triple H. I showed what I can do when I scratched and clawed my way through 29 other men at the Royal Rumble, I showed that I AM THE REAL DEAL!
(Yet another huge pop)
Joe: And for Triple H, or any other guy in the back who thinks he can take this title from me –
The so-called viper Randy Orton strolls down to the ring with Rhodes and DiBiase close behind. All are in their Legacy t-shirts and wrestling trunks as they arrogantly stroll down the ramp to massive boos from the live audience. Joe, clearly not pleased with being interrupted watches the trio get in the ring, and their legend killing leader take a mic.
Orton: Joe… (Pauses for the audience’s heat to die down) I was watching backstage and I thought I heard you say something about putting the locker room on notice.
Joe:(Clearly wondering the meaning of this interruption) Yeah…
Orton: I thought that’s what I heard, and you were about to say something about the guys in the back who think they can take your title.
Joe: Look Orton, we don’t have all night. Get to the point.
Orton: But Joe, that is my point. You were out here talking about guys who want to take your WWE Title, so I thought I’d come out here and get a front row seat for whatever it is you had to say because I want my shot!
Orton: Whether you'd like to admit it or not, you and all these people know that there is no one in that locker room who deserves it more than I do! I don’t know if saw what I did to the so-called "Icon” Sting last night, but it wasn’t pretty.
Orton: Not only did I beat Sting in his first, and maybe only, Wrestlemania appearance, but I punted his skull in!
Orton: I killed the legend of Sting, and I sent Steve Borden home with a concussion that he may never recover from!
Orton: And tonight you wanna come out here and talk about guys taking the limelight…well Joe…I’m here to take the limelight from you!
Joe: (Intensity building) You really want your shot Orton? Well…(starts unbuttoning his shirt) that can be QUICKLY ARRANGED!
Joe drops his title as Orton sheds his Legacy tee. The commentators ponder on whether or not we may see Joe’s first title defense right now. When all of a sudden –
The former WWE Champion Triple H, joined by his Evolution sidekicks, CM Punk and Chris Masters, appears on the ramp dressed in a suit and sarcastically applauding. The fans boo the top heel stable as Legacy and Joe look up to the ramp wondering what they want.
Triple H: Bravo Joe, bravo. You’ve said everything a new champion is supposed to say. The whole honor and dignity speech was something, it really was, but this is a competition. This is about being the best, and Joe, I am STILL the best.
Triple H: Yeah, you won the big one. You took my title. You got your moment to shine on the grandest stage of 'em all.
(Joe nods to Triple H as if to say "You're darned right I did")
Triple H: But do you honestly think everything’s gonna change just because you’re the champion?
Triple H: Joe, this is still MY show, and there’s nothing you, Orton, or any of these fans can do about it.
Triple H: The fact is Joe, this whole fantasy world you’re livin' in, this whole honor and dignity idea that’s in your head, it sounds nice, but it’s all crap!
Triple H: It’s a fairy tale Joe, and there will be no happy ending. Ya see, I’m getting my rematch Joe –
Orton: Whoa, whoa, whoa! Triple H, you can get in line because Joe just granted ME the first shot at the WWE Championship!
Triple H: (a smirk comes on his face as he shakes his head) Oh Randy, Randy, Randy…so naive. You honestly thought that I would walk into a World Championship match without my rematch clause?
(Big heat; Suddenly Punk, tired of the heat, grabs the mic from Triple H.
Punk: (To the fans) SHUT UP AND LET THE MAN TALK!
(Bigger heat as Triple H gives his Straight Edge comrade a funny look before continuing to speak)
Triple H: I WILL get my rematch Joe, and I WILL get my title back!
Joe: THEN WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!?
(Huge pop for the intense Joe as he dares Triple H to come into the ring.)
The audience is enthralled, wondering what will happen next. Suddenly Raw General Manager Paul Heyman appears on the Titantron screen. The audience dies down as he begins to speak.
Heyman: Joe, Triple H, Randy Orton…while I appreciate you guys and your fighting spirit, I think you all need to remember that I am the one in charge here.
Heyman: Now, Triple H has already approached me and said that he will invoke his rematch clause in 3 weeks at Backlash. So as of right now, the man next in line for a title shot is Triple H.
(Heat for the mention of Triple H as the former champion arrogantly grins from ear to ear while Orton looks angry in the ring.)
Heyman: However…Mr. Orton, since you were so eager to come out here and make your case known, and since you did defeat Sting, quite impressively I might add, last night at Wrestlemania, I won’t let you walk away empty handed.
All the superstars in the arena look at the screen anxiously; hanging on Heyman’s every word.
Heyman: So tonight, in that very ring, our main event will be…the former WWE Champion, Triple H…
Heyman: …against “The Legend Killer” Randy Orton!
(Some heat for the two involved, some pop for the match)
Heyman: But that’s not all! Not only will two of the top superstars in WWE go head to head here tonight, but there is a lot riding on this match. Ya see, if Triple H beats Randy Orton tonight, he will earn the right to choose the stipulation for his title match against Samoa Joe at Backlash. However, if Randy Orton wins, the title match at Backlash will become a Triple Threat Match!
(Pop from the crowd for the main event tonight)
Heyman: Gentlemen, have a great night, and good luck.
Heyman goes off the screen as Triple H and Orton have an intense staredown. Joe looks at both of his possible challengers as we fade to commercial.
NOT REMOVING UNTIL:
All my unrealistic expectations of WWE and TNA are met...or I can actually get the ball rolling on a BTB project whichever comes first!
