Re: Be the Booker Showcase Thread
This was going to be my Wrestlemania opening in my old thread, but since I'm more than positive I'll never go back to that thread, here was my very theatrical 'mania opening ceremonies and promo, the theme of which was "The Journey"...
Louisiana Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana
Yessir, we promised you a great main event here tonight. Last year…
Andre the Giant!!
Hulkamania is RUNNIN’ WILD…
MY GOD WHAT A MATCH…
Hiffff ya smeeeeeeel…
Gimmie a ‘Hell yeah’-
Its not over…
The world is watching…
WWE: World Wrestling Entertainment
We’re greeted on the grandest stage of them all with, indeed, a grand stage. We get the opening shot of well over 70,000 fan faithful making some noise, as we get to the ring, where Tony Chimmel is standing, paying his own homage by wearing a Howard Finkel-esque tuxedo.
Ladies and gentlemen, accompanied by New Orleans’ own Wynton Marsalis Band, singing and playing America the Beautiful, multi-Grammy Award winner…ALICIA KEYS!!!
On the entrance stage, we see the Wynton Marsalis Band, with the jazz legend himself on the trumpet, while the lovely Ms. Keys is on a grand piano. On cue, the ensemble lets fly a beautiful, jazzy rendition of the classic, sung soulfully by Alicia Keys, with many in attendance joining in.
Once concluded, the crowd lets out a roar of approval, as the band and Ms. Keys wave to the standing-room only attendance before we fade to black…
The opening video begins, where we’re greeted with the image of an evening on a Louisiana bayou, where we see a man with a lantern in a boat rowing on through the water
For years, men have searched for the meaning of life…
The ripples on the water form a shot of Hulk Hogan’s hand being raised by Muhammad Ali from Wrestlemania I
For years, men have searched for the answer to “what are we here for?”
The man’s ripples produce another image, this one of Roddy Piper meeting Mr. T face to face from their Wrestlemania II encounter
For years, men have longed for a solution to the question of existence…
In the rustle of the trees now, we see the iconic image of the Pontiac Silverdome going nuts when Hulk Hogan slams Andre at Wrestlemania III
The answers are simple…
Randy Savage stands victorious in the WWF Championship tournament at Wrestlemania IV
Our own personal journeys give us meaning…
Hulk Hogan stands victorious over Randy Savage at Wrestlemania V; Ultimate Warrior and Hogan clash a year later in the Ultimate Challenge
It takes a journey to create a moment…
The night sky reveals Hulk Hogan waving the American Flag at Wrestlemania VII; Undertaker Tombstones Jake Roberts for the second win in his storied Streak at Wrestlemania VIII
But it takes a moment to define a journey…
Quick flash in succession of Bret Hart held high at Wrestlemania X, Diesel holding the title at Wrestlemania XI, and Shawn Michaels on the zipwire in his unforgettable Wrestlemania XII entrance
And tonight, the journey of Wrestlemania continues…
The man continues to row, as the ripples create the image of Steve Austin drenched in blood, refusing to tap to the Sharpshooter from Wrestlemania XIII
Tonight, more journeys get their moment…
Mike Tyson socks Shawn Michaels in the jaw at Wrestlemania XIV; Austin and Rock meet at Wrestlemania XV; Jeff Hardy delivers a Swanton from atop a ladder at Wrestlemania 2000
Tonight, more moments define those journeys…
Austin and McMahon shake hands at Wrestlemania XVII; Rock and Hogan stare down at Wrestlemania X8; Brock Lesnar leaps for the Shooting Star Press at Wrestlemania XIX
As some journeys conclude, while others continue…
The man reaches his destination, taking his lantern onto land through the woods. As he swings it around, it lights up the image of Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero sharing their Wrestlemania XX embrace
But when the odyssey is complete, we can look back to those defining moments…
Batista holds the World Heavyweight Championship high at Wrestlemania XXI; Shawn Michaels leaps from a ladder onto a garbage-can laden Vince McMahon at Wrestlemania XXII; Rob Van Dam lifts the World Heavyweight Championship high from last year’s main event
There’s only one place where those moments meet…
The man reaches a street corner, where he lifts the lantern, as many other lanterns suddenly light up and surrounds him.
Before anything else can be seen, the package goes to a black screen again, before it shows the face of John Cena, as multiple Superstars from tonight’s card recite lines from the poem “The Journey” by Mary Oliver
One day you finally knew what you had to do, and began.
Cena steps into the ring, accepting Kurt Angle’s open challenge in his debut
Though the voices around you kept shouting their bad advice --
Orton performs his first RKO
Though the whole house began to tremble
Lesnar unleashes the first ever F-5 in his debut
And you felt the old tug at your ankles.
Angle has an intense Ankle Lock locked in
"Mend my life!" each voice cried.
Shawn Michaels looks on disappointedly after losing at Wrestlemania XI
But you didn't stop.
Punk reaches up for the MITB Briefcase on a ladder
You knew what you had to do, though their melancholy was terrible.
Sting defeats Ric Flair on the final WCW Nitro in history
It was already late enough, and a wild night
Edge unhooks the briefcase in the first ever MITB ladder match
And the road full of the fallen.
Undertaker delivers Tombstones to Jimmy Snuka, Sid, and Randy Orton
But little by little,
Batista powerbombs Triple H through a contract signing table in his career-defining moment
As you left their voices behind
Orton delivers a world-title clinching RKO to Chris Benoit
The stars began to burn through the sheets of clouds
Jericho makes his WWF debut, interrupting The Rock
And there was a new voice
Triple H holds high the WWF Championship
Which you slowly recognized as your own
The Rock delivers the first “Hiff ya smeeellllll” chant in history
That kept you company
Jeff Hardy being held up by a referee and his brother after winning the IC title for the first time
As you strode deeper
Kennedy drops the mike in his debut
Kane rips the cage door off the hinges in his debut in ‘Taker and HBK’s Hell in a Cell
Matt Hardy prepares to leap from the top rope, flashing the V1 hand signal
Christian and Edge holding the World Tag Team Championships high at Wrestlemania 2000
Rey Mysterio leaps from a steel cage onto Christian and Lance Storm in his WWE debut
And deeper into the world
Carlito wins the United States Championship from John Cena in his debut
Determined to do
Punk throws his MITB contract into the hands of a referee before climbing a ladder
The only thing you could do --
Edge mirrors Punk, cashing his MITB on a bleeding John Cena, spearing him
Determined to save
Sting’s hands are raised by Mick Foley and Shawn Michaels after being freed
The only life
The iconic image of HBK winning the WWF title for the first time
The only life
Cena, laying a pit of fans following his first WWE title win at Wrestlemania 21
The only life
A teary Orton is crowned with his first World Heavyweight Championship
The only life
Lesnar celebrates winning the main event of Wrestlemania 19 with Kurt Angle
The only life
Rocky hoists the WWE title high in his final title reign
The only life
The Game’s arms are spread, holding both the WWE and WCW Heavyweight Championships at ‘Mania X8
The only life
An emotional Edge is handed his first ever WWE Championship following his MITB cash in
The only life
Punk, bawling his eyes out, holds his first WWE Championship high from atop a ladder
YOU COULD SAVE
We flash seamlessly back to the man with his lantern, surrounded my many others, revealing an entire crowd with lamps, standing around a Marti Gras float with the Wrestlemania XXIV logo
Only at WRESTLEMANIA!!!
AND NOW…SKITTLES PRESENTS… A WWE RAW AND SMACKDOWN PRODUCTION…WRESTLEMANIA TWENTY-FOUR!!!

Re: Be the Booker Showcase Thread
Here's some of an Impact Wrestling I wrote a while back. Storyline was that Kurt Angle was the new kayfabe owner of the company after Dixie & Bob Carter left TNA, thus ending the contract with them. Never really got into it much, just felt like experimenting with it and since I know I'll never return to it, I'll post what I got written for the first show.
| January 2nd, 2012 | Nashville Asylum | Nashville, Tennessee|
We open up this special 3 hour edition of TNA Impact Wrestling with a video package documenting what was thought to be TNA's last ever televised event, that being Bound For Glory. The main event had Bobby Roode finally win the big one as he defeated Kurt Angle. We are shown some backstage clips following the event of the TNA Wrestlers wondering around the arena, not knowing what the future may hold as it was announced the day before Bound For Glory that Bob Carter had terminated the deal Panda Energy had with TNA Impact Wrestling. We see many wrestlers saying their goodbye's, assuming that this is the end of the road for TNA. That is, until we cut to a month later and find out that TNA has a new owner. (Kayfabe) Kurt Angle but in reality it is an undisclosed company. We then see Kurt Angle in multiple meetings with TNA Wrestlers and Spike TV Executives. The voice over man tells us that now we find ourselves here tonight, January 2nd 2012, a new dawn for TNA is on the horizon. We then cut back to highlights of Bound For Glory with the video ending with Bobby Roode winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship and the voice over man says that starting from tonight, TNA embarks on a new era in the wrestling industry.
From here, we fade into a brand new TNA Impact Wrestling introduction video which is set to new theme music, a song called 'Spotlight' by Saliva. The video comes to a close and we look at the arena before a flurry of pyrotechnics explode, the crowd in Nashville on their feet in anticipation for the return of Impact Wrestling. We look at some signs, many of them in support of Bobby Roode before we cut to the announce tam which consists of Mike Tenay & the returning Don West.
Ladies & Gentlemen, welcome back to TNA Impact Wrestling! After nearly three months off air, we are back and back with a bang! And folks, joining me tonight on commentary is the one and only Don West! Don, how does it feel to be back here in TNA?!
My goodness, Professor! I can't remember the last time I felt this feeling in my stomach! It makes me wonder why I even went away in the first place! This crowd is electric and I can't wait for tonight's show and the shows following tonight!
And what an explosive night we have for these great TNA fans, a three hour extravaganza, a three hour blockbuster event! Tonight, we embark on TNA's rise back to glory! Tonight we are the alternative and tonight we become great again!
But, we only have two matches confirmed for tonight folks. We see the X-Division Championship defended in a rematch from Bound For Glory as Austin Aries defends against Brian Kendrick and the TNA Tag Team Championships are put on the line as the champions, Brother Devon & D'Angelo Dinero square off against Ink Inc.
But, as well as that, we are scheduled to hear from a man who hasn't been able to speak on winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Bound For Glory, I'm of course talking about, Bobby Roode.
Everyone has been waiting to hear from Bobby Roode ever since he reached for the brass ring and took it from our new owner, Kurt Angle. What will Bobby Roode have to say to these great Impact Wrestling fans? That's one I'm sure looking forward to seeing later on tonight, Professor.
Gold Medal now hits the PA system and the new TNA Owner, Kurt Angle steps out to a positive reaction. Kurt wears a charcoal suit with a white shirt and tops it all off with a pair of sunglasses.
Ladies & Gentlemen, please welcome the new TNA Impact Wrestling Owner, Kurt Angle!
Immediately following the introduction of Kurt Angle, the crowd begin to chant 'Thank You Kurt' With the chant getting louder and louder as Angle makes it to the ring steps.
Will you just listen to these fans, Don? Showing their appreciation for Kurt Angle saving TNA from going under. Showing their appreciation for Kurt Angle keeping the wrestling industry thriving.
Basically, if it wasn't for Kurt Angle, we wouldn't be sitting here right now, heck, even if Bob Carter still owned TNA, I wouldn't be sitting here but that's not the point. It's thanks to Kurt Angle that I have my old job back and it's thanks to Kurt Angle that this great company is still alive baby!
Kurt Angle stands in the middle of the ring with an Impact Wrestling microphone. The crowd continue to chant at him as he stands and takes it all in, loving every second of this moment. The chant does eventually die down enough for Kurt to begin to speak.
Y'know, if someone had said to me three months ago that I would be the owner of the company I helped build for the five years I'd been in it, I'd have told you, you were off your rocker.
If someone had come up to me and said 'Hey, Kurt. That money you saved up over all the years, in a few months you can use it to buy the company you love, to buy the company you got out of bed for every day of the five years you've been in it.'
I'd have said to get out of my face and stop wasting my time.
Another mixed reaction here.
Fast forward three months from Bound For Glory, the night I lost the TNA World Heavyweight Championship and here I stand with a prize just as sweet as all of my world title victories. I stand here, in front of all of you people sitting in this arena tonight and the people watching live at home the new owner of TNA Impact Wrestling!
There we go, Kurt gets his big pop from the crowd.
I used that cash I saved over the years and I actually bought the company I tried to help build by wrestling day in, day out for five years and now, the wrestling world still has two companies!
Now, before I became owner of TNA, I was a wrestler who had just lost the TNA World Heavyweight Championship to Bobby Roode at our biggest event of the year; Bound For Glory.
Big cheer here for Bobby Roode!
And that means I'm the one who is entitled to a rematch with Bobby for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
Heat, no one wants to see that again, Kurt.
But, but... That rematch is not
going to happen. Since I now own TNA, I will no longer be competing in this ring, I will no longer get out of bed to wrestle day in and week out, from now on, I get out of bed each day to run this company and take it to an all new level!
The crowd begin a TNA chant here, Kurt nods and smiles before moving on.
But with that, we are left without a number one contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship which is a bit unfortunate but as my first public decision regarding who the number one contender for the Championship is that tonight, we will have four men battle it out, three one on one matches. We will have two matches where four competitors fight it out to advance to face the winner of the other respective match from tonight in tonights main event with the winner becoming the new number one contender for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
The crowd love that announcement! Big pop for it as Angle paces the ring.
I hear you asking, who exactly will be given the privilege of being in that match, Kurt? I'll tell you who exactly will be in that match. Four of TNA's original stars, no one from Vince McMahon's company will be competing for that honor tonight. Those four men will be... AJ Styles, Alex Shelley, Samoa Joe & Bobby Roode's good friend and tag team partner, James Storm!
Another big pop from the crowd, more specifically for AJ Styles than the rest but still a big pop nonetheless.
And that's not all we have in store for tonight, we will also have the TNA Knockouts in action as Winter defends the title against Mickie James & Tara in a 3-Way Elimination Tables Match!
Another match added to Impact Wrestling makes that six matches thus far announced! Are there any more?
And my final announcement for now is one that may upset quite a number of you fans sitting here in this very arena, it may upset you fans sitting watching at home. Tonight, a man has requested some time to address the fans and make an announcement about retirement. I'm talking about the man who beat Hulk Hogan at Bound For Glory, I'm talking about The Icon
The crowd boo like shit here for that announcement, not expecting it at all.
I'd say more about Sting but I think I'll just leave that up to him to do a little later on tonight. This is a new era for TNA Impact Wrestling. Starting from tonight, we climb back to the top of the mountain and this time, we stay there. Enjoy the show!
Kurt drops the microphone and exits the ring to cheers from the crowd. He walks around the ring and slaps the fans hands before heading up the ramp and putting his sunglasses back on.
Oh my, Don! Kurt Angle just shook TNA Impact Wrestling with those announced matches! We have what should be an epic encounter between three of the best Knockouts in TNA history as Winter defends in a 3-Way Tables match! We have a new mini tournament to decide the new number one contender for Bobby Roode's TNA World Heavyweight Championship!
And also announced, the end of an era, the end of the road for The Icon
Sting. That will be a tearjerker, Professor. A moment these fans will never forget, mark my words.
We keep the focus on Kurt Angle as he disappears behind the curtain and we fade on out to a
We return to Impact Wrestling in the backstage area as Jeremy Borash stands by with Samoa Joe.
Ladies & Gentlemen, what a series of announcements from Kurt Angle moments ago but for this man here, it could be the opportunity of a lifetime, Samoa Joe, after months of not picking up a win in Impact Wrestling, how does it feel to know Kurt Angle still has some faith in you to reach the top of the food chain?
How does it feel? Yeah, you're right, I haven't won a single match in Impact Wrestling for months and I could say that is my fault but it isn't, it was Hulk Hogan & Eric Bischoff who caused me to lose every match I was in.
Joe pauses, allowing us to take in his confusing statement.
But tonight, I'm going to avenge those losses. Tonight, I'm no longer the Fox, I'm the huntin' dog. I'm the one who is going to face Bobby Roode at Genesis! And I'm the next TNA World Heavyweight Champion! From here on out, I decide my future, from here on out, I'm the Judge, I'm the Jury & I'm the Executioner!
Joe turns and heads off.
Well, good luck, Joe.
Short but sweet segment here, we cut back to the ring area, looking at the stage as The Greatest Man That Ever Lived hits the PA System to heat. Aries has the X-Division Championship wrapped around his waist and makes his way down the ramp.
The following contest is scheduled for one fall and it is for the TNA X-Division Championship. Introducing first, he is the reigning and defending X-Division Champion, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin weighing 209 pounds; A Double
Don, I know you watched Bound For Glory, how about the last time we seen Austin Aries defend that coveted X-Division Championship.
Austin Aries hasn't been in TNA for very long yet he has already mapped out his legacy, Professor. His match with Brian Kendrick in Ultimate X was off the charts, tonight in this regular wrestling match, I expect the same phenomenal match!
Brian Kendrick gave Austin Aries his toughest battle yet at Bound For Glory and tonight should be no different, Don. Brian Kendrick is one of the most improved TNA Wrestlers in recent memory.
We then hear the music of one Brian Kendrick hit, he has new music, the music sounds like a butchered instrumental of his former WWE theme 'Man With A Plan' Kendrick gets mainly cheers but some fans are getting a bit bored of seeing Aries & Kendrick going at it in the ring again.
And introducing the challenger, from Orlando, Florida, weighing 182 pounds; Brian Kendrick!
Brian Kendrick certainly looks focused on the task at hand, Don. Brian Kendrick's eyes tells the story. The passion is oh so obvious, tonight he wants to take back the TNA X-Division Championship!
And honestly, Professor. I wouldn't mind if either of these men walked away with the belt. Sure, Aries might be a cocky S.O.B, but he backs it up in the ring and when Brian Kendrick was the X-Division Champion, he fought off some tremendous competitors, most notably Abyss at Destination X in two thousand and eleven.
Both men are in the ring and everything is set to get going.
Match One | X-Division Championship
Austin Aries © vs. Brian Kendrick
Senior referee, Earl Hebner raises the X-Division Championship up, reminding us what is at stake in this match and he then shows the title to Brian Kendrick who pats it. Hebner passes the Championship out to Christy Hemme and then signals for the bell to sound. Both men get going with the typical collar and elbow tie up, Aries quickly pulls Kendrick into a side headlock takedown, Kendrick is able to force his legs up and kip up out of the headlock, Aries gets back to his feet but is sent back down as Kendrick grabs him and hits an armdrag, Kendrick pops back to his feet and Aries quickly follows only for Kendrick to hit the same move again, Kendrick once again pops back to his feet and so does Austin Aries, Kendrick attempts the armdrag again but this time is unsuccessful as Aries blocked it and sent a right hand towards his midsection. Aries now grabs the arm of Kendrick and pulls him down with an arm-breaker!
Aries doesn't waste any time in picking his targeted body part to work on for this one, quickly going on the attack to Kendrick's right arm. Aries drops a few knee's right to the forearm of Kendrick and then locks in an armbar, wrenching at Kendrick's arm as much as he can. Aries doesn't keep the hold on for long, though; knowing that it wont be enough to defeat Kendrick this early on. Aries pulls Kendrick to his feet and grabs his right arm, Aries walks over with Kendrick to the ropes and gets a good grip of the arm and then proceeds to jump over the top rope and down to the floor, forcing Kendrick's arm to hit off the ropes and almost out of it's socket! Kendrick instantly falls to the canvas, rolling around in pain, almost as if the arm was pulled out of the socket.
Earl Hebner steps in to check on Kendrick as Aries hops back onto the apron. Aries mocks Kendrick as he waits for him to get back to his feet, the crowd start an 'Aries Sucks' chant, which pisses him off so he shouts at them 'I don't suck, you suck!' Kendrick has now made it back to his feet and Aries hops up onto the top rope, springboarding towards Kendrick and nailing him in the right arm with a springboard missile dropkick! The crowd can't help but applaud Aries for his picture perfect high flying ability. Aries then asks 'Do I suck now?!' and then makes the first cover of the match, keeping Kendrick's left shoulder pinned down. 1............ 2............Kendrick was able to just lift his right shoulder up. The damage may have been done to his shoulder early on. Don West says this one might not last much longer if Aries continues to work on the weakened arm of Brian Kendrick.
Aries gets back to his feet and stands over Kendrick who continues to hold his arm. Aries grabs Kendrick and pulls him to his feet. Instead of going on the attack of the arm again, Aries pushes Kendrick off the ropes and as Kendrick runs off them, Aries leaps in the air, attempting a dropkick but he misses his target! Kendrick used his good arm to put on the brakes and hold onto the top rope. Kendrick seizes an opportunity and quickly runs into an Oklahoma Roll! 1............ 2............Aries manages to avoid an upset victory!
Kendrick gets back to his feet and falls against the ropes, Aries is just as quick to get back up and he looks at Kendrick and charges for him but Kendrick drops down, pulling the top rope with him and causes Aries to fly over and out of the ring, crashing down to the padded floor. The crowd begin to come alive when Kendrick scales to the top turnbuckle as Aries finds his feet. Kendrick looks hesitant but in the end he jumps off and nails Aries with a diving somersault! A mini 'Holy Shit' chant starts here, Kendrick is first back to his feet as referee Earl Hebner demands he get the action back in the ring. Kendrick grabs Aries with his good arm and rolls him under the bottom rope. Kendrick doesn't enter the ring the same way, however. He instead decides to hop onto the apron and once again scale to the top turnbuckle and as Aries finds his feet again, he dives off with a crossbody! HE HITS IT! Kendrick makes the cover. 1............ARIES ROLLS THROUGH! 1............ 2............Kendrick kicks out!
Aries isn't happy with Kendrick and looks to go back to work on him as he pulls him back to his feet but Kendrick shoves Aries off and then hits him with a wheel kick! The crowd let out a big pop here for Kendrick. Kendrick doesn't go for the cover, he instead grabs Aries and yanks him to his feet and rocks him with a series of forearm smashes, backing him into the corner. Kendrick then whips Aries into the opposite corner and then charges at him. Aries leaps out of the corner and Kendrick charges shoulder first into the turnbuckle, further injuring his right arm! Kendrick stumbles out of the corner backwards and Aries grabs Kendrick, forcing his right arm behind his back and delivering a back suplex with the result being Kendrick's back crushed his right arm! Aries forces Kendrick down with another pin attempt. 1............ 2............Kendrick still kicks out! Aries is clearly getting pissed off with Kendrick's refusal to just stay down.
Aries is now the one looking to go high risk as he climbs to the top rope as Kendrick lays, still clutching his right arm. Aries straightens himself up and it looks like he's going for the Macho Man Elbow Drop. HE IS! Aries dives off the top with the elbow but Kendrick gets his knee up! Aries now clutches his arm and Kendrick has some time to recover.
Kendrick uses the ropes to pull himself back up, at the same time, Aries has wobbled back to his feet and is clutching at his elbow, he isn't weak enough to lose focus though and he spots Kendrick against the turnbuckle and looks to go back on the offensive. Aries approaches the corner but Kendrick sends his boot into his sternum and hops up onto the middle turnbuckle and dives off and pulls Aries into a Sunset Flip! 1............ 2............3?! NO! It's not over yet, Aries used his body strength to kick out of that one. Aries is back up first and has grabbed Kendrick's legs in a slingshot position and it looks like that's what he is going for as he positions himself at the corner and falls back, sending Kendrick towards it but, Kendrick just leaps up onto the second rope and then climbs up the extra step and Moonsaults off, hitting a standing Austin Aries, Kendrick's knee bashed Aries in the face and blood almost instantly begins to trickle out of Aries' nose. Kendrick has the legs hooked, though. 1............ 2............ARIES KICKS OUT!
Kendrick is shocked, the crowd are getting into it and Aries has blood over his chin. Kendrick gets back to his feet and invites Aries to do the same. Aries does but he is met with a kick to the midsection and now Kendrick hooks the head! Kendrick is using the right arm as he attempts Slice Bread #2! NO! Aries grabbed the right arm and quickly pulled Kendrick into an armdrag and followed up by locking him in an armbar. Aries isn't looking for Kendrick to submit here, he just wants to inflict as much punishment as he can as he wrenches on the arm constantly, sitting up and falling back down time after time. The crowd 'Ohh' after each one, almost as if they can feel Kendrick's pain. Aries finishes with the arm killing and then gets back to his feet and now forces Kendrick to his and pulls him into a front facelock and lifts him in the air, keeping him there. HE DROPS KENDRICK WITH A BRAINBUSTER! It's over here now, Don West is sure of that. Aries makes the cocky cover. 1............ 2............3-NO! Kendrick got his foot on the bottom rope!
Austin Aries can't believe it, he's ticked off here, he doesn't even bother going back to work on Kendrick, he just leaves the ring and heads over to where Christy is and grabs a steel chair. Kendrick is in the ring, getting back to his feet. Aries enters the ring with the chair but Hebner tries to stop him, Aries threatens him with the chair so Hebner nosedives out of the way and now Aries smacks Kendrick's shoulder with the steel chair! Earl Hebner calls for the bell!
Brian Kendrick via Disqualification.
Here is your winner as a result of a Disqualification Brian-
Christy doesn't get to finish as Austin Aries continues to attack Kendrick with the steel chair, bashing his shoulder time and time again and then focusing on the forearm. Earl Hebner tries to stop him but Aries chases him off and just continues to assault Brian Kendrick. We hear the crowd cheer and it quickly becomes apparent as to why, Christopher Daniels is making the save! Aries turns around and see's Daniels just before he enters the ring. Daniels gets up and Aries swings the chair for his head but Daniels dodges it, ducking under and getting behind Aries. Aries turns around and is met with a stiff kick to the midsection which forces Aries to drop the steel chair. Daniels pulls Aries in and tries to hook the arms but Aries is able to battle out of it and quickly exit the ring. Aries grabs his X-Division Championship and backs slowly up the ramp as Daniels tends to Kendrick and watches as Aries continues to back up the ramp.
We cut to the parking lot as a car is parking up. Jeremy Borash is there and he approaches the car.
I think this is it, I think the TNA World Heavyweight Champion is in that car. C'mon lets get a closer look.
Borash and the camera guy approach the car as the door opens and out steps James Storm! The crowd can be heard cheering in the background but there's no sign of Bobby Roode.
James Storm, where, where is the TNA World Heavyweight Champion? Where is Bobby Roode? Are you guys no longer friends because Roode is the World Champion?
Storm smirks, and doesn't need to say anything, it's obvious he's thinking 'What the fuck did you just ask me?'
No, JB, that's not it, nothing like that at all. Bobby got caught up at the airport because he was carrying the TNA Championship belt. Security have to do some checks on him, he just told me to go on to the show and he'll catch me up. He'll be here in about half an hour or so.
I see. James, did you hear that tonight you are competing in a mini-tournament with a shot at the TNA World Heavyweight Championship on the line?
Yeah, JB. I got a text from Kazarian not so long ago saying I was in a match tonight with the possibility of competing in another one for a shot at the TNA Belt.
James, what would winning tonight mean for the future of you and Bobby Roode? If you two had to face each other over the TNA World Heavyweight Championship, would you guys stay friends and tag team partners?
Storm again gives JB the look.
Why do people keep asking me that? Everyone has been asking me if the TNA World Heavyweight Championship is going to do anything to cause me and Bobby to have a falling out. The answer is simply no, it doesn't matter if he is champion or if I am champion, we are friends and will always be friends. you can't put a price on friendship, not even with the TNA World Heavyweight Championship. And if me & Bobby do end up going at it in the ring for the title, it wont do anything to break us apart. It will be simply another day at the office.
Well, thanks James Storm. I'll stay out here a little longer to see if I can catch Bobby Roode a little later on tonight when he arrives.
James Storm has walked off and the last thing we see of this segment is of Jeremy Borash's ugly mug as we fade to a...
We see Jeff Hardy return to Impact Wrestling on the 8th of September 2011, the fans chanting and cheering for him as he walks down the ramp.
Jeff Hardy: Thank you, I do not deserve that.
The video cuts to the Victory Road 2011 Pay-Per-View with Jeff Hardy making his entrance, we hear Jeff talking over the video.
Jeff Hardy: The last time I was saw in this ring, I was pathetic...
We now see close ups of Jeff Hardy's face from Victory Road.
Jeff Hardy: ...I was messed up...
We cut back to the September 8th Impact Wrestling show to see Jeff Hardy standing in the ring.
Jeff Hardy: I can't change what happened at Victory Road but I can admit that at Victory Road, I had hit rock bottom.
Quick flashes of Jeff Hardy falling about before the match.
Jeff Hardy: I can't expect you to forgive me and give me another chance...
We see close up of disappointed fans from Victory Road...
Jeff Hardy: All I can ask is, give me one more shot.
We see the fans chanting One More Shot whilst we flash between clips of Jeff Hardy's more successful times in TNA.
Jeff Hardy: All I can do, is ask...
The video comes to a close with Jeff Hardy walking up the ramp with the crowd cheering him on. We now cut to a graphic to bring the video full circle.
ARE THE FANS WILLING TO FORGIVE? | JEFF HARDY RETURNS TO IMPACT WRESTLING | SOON
Welcome back to Impact Wrestling folks, we are live on Spike TV and coming up right now is our first match to determine who will be the one to face Bobby Roode for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship at Genesis.
And right as Tenay finishes, we hear Motorcity hit and out comes Alex Shelley to a decent pop from the Nashville crowd. Shelley wears his usual Motor City attire.
The following contest is scheduled for one fall where the winner will go on to the main event tonight. Introducing first, weighing 215 pounds; Alex Shelley!
What an opportunity for the twenty eight year old Alex Shelley. Tonight, he could step closer to his dream, step closer to getting that shot he has wanted his whole life. Alex Shelley could earn the right to face Bobby Roode for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship.
Alex Shelley is no stranger to success though, Professor. He's a former Tag Team Champion, an X-Division Champion, he won the TNA World X Cup with three other guys, Tag Team of the Year with Chris Sabin and add to that all his accomplishments from elsewhere and you have one accomplished young athlete but, there is none bigger than the big one, none bigger than winning the prestigious TNA World Heavyweight Champion.
Shelley gets himself in the ring and hits the ropes with some last minute preparation. We suddenly hear Nation of Violence hit which the crowd gives a mostly negative reaction to and out steps Samoa Joe!
You talk about accomplishments in TNA. Samoa Joe is a former four time X-Division Champion, a Tag Team Champion, King of the Mountain, accomplishments in other promotions such as Ring of Honor and unlike Alex Shelley, Samoa Joe has also been TNA World Heavyweight Champion before.
But, lets not forget that Samoa Joe hasn't won a match in TNA for months, Professor. For months he has been trying to change his luck and nothing has worked for him but, for Alex Shelley's sake, I hope he walks out of here victorious, if Joe loses I have a feeling there will be hell to pay and Shelley will be the target.
Match Two | Winner Advance To The Main Event
Alex Shelley vs. Samoa Joe
Both men know each other relatively well, having faced on multiple occasions in the past. Joe looks dead set on destroying Shelley here and Shelley can see this. Both men circle the ring, waiting for the right moment to go in for the attack. Joe gets tired of waiting and starts to back Shelley against the corner. Joe smiles like a sinister bastard as Shelley has nowhere to go. Joe swings his arm for Shelley but Shelley uses his size and quickness ability to his advantage and rolls under Joe, getting out of the predicament. Joe turns around and see's Shelley at the opposite corner. Joe moves quickly towards him and lunges his arm at him again, only for Shelley to once again roll through, Joe turn around and is met with a series of kicks to the leg and the ribs. Shelley then hits a spin kick, nailing Joe in the gut and runs off the ropes, only to run right into a huge Samoan Drop!
The pace has certainly just suffered a big blow there as Alex Shelley was damn near flattened by that Samoan Drop. Joe looks possessed with destroying Shelley as he yanks him back to his feet. Joe lifts Shelley up and rams him into the corner! Joe then drives his shoulder into Shelley's gut several times and then backs off for a brief moment. Shelley falls to his knees but, Joe grabs his head and forces him back up and into the corner. Joe grabs Shelley's jaw and looks him dead in the eye and rocks him with a huge knife edged chop! Joe pulls Shelley nearer to the center of the ring and hits him with a snapmare and then hits Shelley with a chop to the back, following up with a kick to the chest and then dropping a big knee across Shelley's neck! Joe hooks the leg. 1............ 2............Shelley lifts his shoulder up off the canvas!
Things aren't looking good for Shelley here. Joe wastes a bit of time as Shelley crawls to the corner, only to stay in the seated position and no longer move. Joe charges towards Shelley and damn near takes his head off with the Facewash! Joe hit Shelley with such force that Shelley fell out the ring to the floor. Mike Tenay says this does in fact seem like an all new Samoa Joe. Alex Shelley uses the apron to pull himself up but he is only back to his feet for about three seconds as when he looks back in the ring, he see's Samoa Joe charging towards him. Joe connects with a hard baseball slide that sends Shelley flying into the guard rail hard. Joe looks unstoppable right now as he exits the ring and heads over to Shelley. Shelley sends a kick Joe's way but it does little to hurt Joe. Joe clubs Shelley across the face and Shelley falls to his knee's. Joe stands over Shelley as the fans give him heat and he eventually picks him up but instead of getting the action back in the ring, he lifts Shelley up in a bearhug position and rams his lower back off the ring apron and then turns and smashes Shelley's back off the guard rail! The referee gives up trying to reason with Joe and starts the count. Joe isn't done on the outside yet, however. Joe pulls Shelley back to his feet and once again lifts him into a bearhug position, Joe turns his attention to the ring post and charges at it, Shelley's back is shattered as he smashes off the post! The crowd are in disbelief at the beating Joe is dishing out. Joe rolls in the ring and then back out to break the count.
Joe pulls Shelley up to the ramp and hits a suplex on it! Shelley is in agony here, writhing in pain. Joe doesn't care, he couldn't give a shit, he just wants to destroy Shelley and finally win a match. the referee exits the ring and warns Joe that if he doesn't get it back in the ring then he is calling for a Disqualification. Joe teases hitting the ref but it doesn't come to anything, Joe obliges and finally rolls Shelley back into the ring. Shelley rolls to the other side of the ring, trying to get away from Joe to bide himself some time but Joe is
surprisingly quick to get over to Shelley and yank him back to a vertical base. Joe slams Shelley down with a simple Scoop Slam and makes a cover. 1............ 2............NO! Shelley fights on! Kicking out to everyone's surprise!
Joe actually doesn't look pissed off here, he instead has a sick, sinister smile slapped across his chubby face, Joe remains on his knees for a moment, no idea why, but then once again, picks Shelley up. Joe hits Shelley with an Inverted Atomic Drop and then runs off the ropes, SHELLEY AT THE RIGHT SECOND HITS A HURRICANRANA! Joe ran right into it! Joe was sent flying out of the ring there and now Shelley has some time!
Shelley gets back to his feet but he falls against the turnbuckle due to the damage done to his back. Joe is getting back to his feet but he isn't facing the ring. Shelley
stupidly see's this and positions himself at the ropes opposite Joe and he then runs towards Joe and just as Joe turns around he see's Shelley diving over the top with a Somersault! JOE MOVED! The thud of Shelley hitting nothing but the floor was enough to make a bunch of fans (mainly women but some men) scream in shock! Joe now has the smile on his face again and just when you thought Shelley was getting back into things, he doesn't. This match seems like Shelley is being punished for something since he's hardly done anything but be fed to Joe. Oh well. Joe picks Shelley up and rolls him back into the ring.
Joe gets back in the ring and takes his time going on the attack. He positions Shelley on the top turnbuckle and pulls him into position, it's clear what he's going for here, MUSCLE BUSTER! Shelley was flattened there! Joe isn't finished yet, though; he now gets behind Shelley and locks him in the Coquina Clutch! The referee check on Shelley and he's faded out, instead of dropping his hand for the three times, the referee just calls for the bell.
Samoa Joe via pinfall
Joe keeps the Clutch held for a few moments longer and then releases and gets to his feet and has his hand raised by the referee.
Here is your winner and advancing to tonight's Main Event match; Samoa Joe!
Joe brings out the sick grin once again as he stares over at a lifeless Alex Shelley. Joe demands a microphone and is handed one. Joe pants heavily, presumably because he's a fat bastard because he never did much in the match to be fair.
Just like I said earlier tonight, from now on, I control my future! Tonight, I Judged Alex Shelley, I was the Jury for Alex Shelley & I was the Executioner for Alex Shelley!
And later on tonight, I don't care if your AJ Styles or James Storm, I will do to you what I did to that pathetic Motor City scumbag and I will be facing Roode for the TNA World Heavyweight Championship!
Joe throws the microphone down and makes a quick exit from the ring.
Oh my, I wouldn't want to be James Storm or AJ Styles, Don. Samoa Joe has found a new mean streak and I have a gut feeling that he will be the one to face Bobby Roode at Genesis, no matter who he faces in tonight's Main Event.
I cannot believe the beating Alex Shelley just took at the hands of Samoa Joe, Professor! And you see referee's coming down to check on Shelley who has not moved at all. Man, I'm with you, Professor; I'd hate to be the one facing Samoa Joe in the main event tonight.
We have one last glance at Shelley who is still being attended to by referee's but he's moving so things look alright. Yay.
Backstage, we see Bully Ray walking down a corridor in the usual attire. Mike Tenay notes that it seems he is walking out to the ring area!
The package opens with a dark, damp and puddle infested cellar, the sound of dripping can be heard, a light flickers on and off constantly until we hear a voice.
???: We, are the Fathers of Hell whose eyes burn bright in the mist of the darkness...
Suddenly, a drawing of a face appears on the screen, flickering in front of the cellar, the eyes are a bright, crimson red and an evil laugh can be heard.
???: We have been locked up for a long, long time, left to rot for eternity...
Suddenly, we flicker between the cellar and a skeleton, shackled up against a wall. The laugh can still be heard...
???: But now, we are free, free to roam the world and free to bring pain and suffering to all of humanity...
The dripping stops and we begin to flicker between a dark, stormy night and the cellar and then suddenly the TNA logo appears on the screen, with bolts of lightning striking it.
???: We are The Nightmare, and we are coming to TNA.
In the ring, we see Bully Ray with a microphone already in hand.
You dipshits in the truck better cut my music right now because I wanna get something off my chest!
The music cuts and as a result, we can hear the crowd giving Bully Ray more heat. Ray shakes his head.
I don't give a damn what you people think, sit down, shut up and pay attention because Bully Ray has something to say!
Yeah, that doesn't work at all. The crowd just get more into it, giving him a heap of heat.
Y'know what, forget it, I'm not out here for you stupid people to hear what I have to say, I'm out here to demand answers...
Three months ago, when TNA's biggest event of the year, Bound For Glory, came to a close, I was told that TNA was closing it's doors.
The crowd boo at the fact that TNA had to close it's doors, they start a 'TNA' chant which pisses Bully Ray off.
Aw, shut it, I'm not upset about TNA possibly having to shut down, I couldn't give a crap, if this company closes I go elsewhere to showcase my talents.
More heat for Bully.
And then I find out that Kurt Angle bought the company from Bob Carter. I find out that the great Kurt Angle is now the sole owner of this company and he is the one who will shape the future of it.
When I heard Kurt had bought TNA, I was happy, I wouldn't have to pack my bags and go elsewhere to showcase just how fricken' good I am, I could stay here in TNA and continue my quest to become World Champion!
So when Kurt came out here earlier tonight and announced this mini tournament where the winner faces Bobby Roode for the title, I was excited, pumped, ready to go but, but... (Changes tone)
It turns out Kurt Angle didn't include me in the god damn tournament!
And not only do I not get a chance at earning a TNA World Heavyweight Championship shot, I'm not even scheduled to wrestle on the entire show! I ask Kurt, what the hell is wrong with you? Don't you remember the code in Immortal? Don't you remember bro's before companies? Don't you remember who had your back when you were TNA Champion?
More heat here for Bully Ray.
But it gets worse, far worse. You put in four men, two of which fought against us in Immortal, Kurt. The other two, one hadn't won a match in months and the other, what the hell did he do to deserve being in the tournament?! Kurt, I want answers and I want them now. I'll wait out here all night if I have to!
Nothing happens, Ray just stares up at the stage but no one appears. He begins pacing the ring.
Kurt, I swear to-
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, friggen' blah!
We see Mr. Anderson on the stage! Mr. Anderson is out to confront Bully Ray!
Who the hell do you think you are, interrupting me?!
Anderson stays on the stage, looking at Bully Ray with a smirk.
Oh, I'm sorry. Didn't I introduce myself? In that case...
Anderson drops the regular microphone he had in his hand on the stage and the lights dim as he reaches up and the trademark Mr. Anderson microphone falls from the ceiling.
Ladies & Gentlemen, children of all ages, and that fat bastard in the ring, allow me to introduce myself...
Bully Ray doesn't speak, which is strange, he could easily just interrupt Anderson and shut him up rather than raging at him silently.
I hail from GREEN BAY WISCONSINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN-A!
Anderson prepares himself.
Anderson pauses for a moment, allowing it all to soak in.
Anderson throws the microphone away and it goes back to the ceiling and he picks up the regular microphone as the lights come back on.
How was that for ya?
Very funny, Anderson. I suggest you turn your ass around and get to the back with the rest of those losers because I have answers to get from Kurt!
Now, if anyone has a right to complain about this whole situation regarding the guys chosen for the matches tonight, it's me... Seeing as I did kick your ass at Bound For Glory in the Falls Count Anywhere match. Actually, if I remember correctly, I kicked your ass all over the building!
Bully Ray gets pissed by Anderson's smugness. Anderson mocks Bully off the microphone and Bully snaps.
You wanna prove you can still kick my ass? How about you get your stupid, skinny little injury prone ass down to this ring and see which one of us wins in a bare knuckled fight!
Anderson moves his mouth away from the microphone and doesn't say anything, he just looks at Bully Ray with a sarcastic look of worry. Bully invites him to come down and Anderson, without saying a word, drops his microphone and begins walking down the ramp.
Oh my goodness, are we about to see an all out street fight between these two, Don?!
Bully Ray sent Anderson the challenge and Anderson looks to have accepted!
The crowd are going nuts as Anderson approaches the ring. Bully Ray steps back to allow Anderson to get in and as soon as Anderson does, HE CHARGES AT BULLY RAY! Both men brawl with each other with no one getting the clear advantage. They roll around the ring, trading blows for a very little amount of time as Security rush the ring and try to break them apart. After a struggle, Security manage to separate them, forcing Bully Ray into on corner and Anderson into the other. Anderson is trying to break free but Security have him tightly held. Suddenly, Kurt Angle appears on the tron, standing in front of his table in his office.
Enough! ENOUGH! I'll be damned if I let two men fight in an unsanctioned battle on the first night of this companies return!
But, since you two seem so eager to tear each other apart, right now we are going to have a Street Fight which will feature both of you!
WOAH! Big pop from the crowd. Both Anderson & Ray look pleased with this decision.
But there's a catch, I'm sick to death of seeing you two facing each other and I'm sure these fans are too. Tonight, right now, in the match between you two... Whichever one of you loses... Will no longer be allowed to compete in Impact Wrestling anymore!
Is he serious?!
Get them a referee and start the match.
Angle fades out and we look in the ring as Security let both men go but before we can see what's going to happen next, we cut to a...
Match Three | Street Fight | Loser Can No Longer Compete In Impact Wrestling
Mr. Anderson vs. Bully Ray
We join the action with both men on the outside the ring, on the ramp to be exact. Bully Ray is the one in control at this point, mounted on top of Anderson, lunging several hard right hands right at Anderson's skull in an attempt to bust him open. We know this as Bully Ray shouts 'I'm gonna make you bleed, bitch!' Bully Ray steps off of Anderson and picks him up. Anderson stumbles to his feet as Ray assists him and Ray scoops him up and then smashes Anderson down on the ramp with a forceful scoop slam! Anderson writhes in pain, Bully Ray walks up to the top of the ramp as Anderson recovers. Ray looks out to the crowd and they give him quite a bit of heat here, Ray starts mocking Anderson and then out of nowhere, raises his hand up in the air and Anderson's microphone drops from the ceiling, right into Ray's hand.
Bully Ray has a hold of the microphone and as Anderson gets to his feet, he takes a few short steps towards him and forces the hand with the microphone Anderson's way, Anderson ducks under Ray and clubs him in the back of the head but this doesn't do much to affect Ray. Ray turns around to face Anderson and this time is hit with a toe kick to the sternum and now Anderson grabs the microphone and SMASHES IT OFF BULLY RAY's SKULL! Bully Ray is sent flying back, he falls down the ramp and back rolls towards the ring, overselling at it's finest here. Anderson throws his microphone away and it disappears back to the ceiling. Bully Ray gets back to his feet but as soon as h does, Anderson smashes his skull off the ring apron and rolls him under the bottom rope, taking the action to the ring for the first time.
Anderson however, doesn't get in the ring straight away, he decides to do a bit of hunting under the ring and pulls out a pair of trash can lids along with a Singapore cane, he throws all this in the ring but he isn't done, he continues to look under the ring and he finds a rather thick looking table. He pulls that out and pushes it under the bottom rope.
Anderson gets back in the ring and ignores the table for the time being and focuses on the trash can lid. Bully Ray is on his knees as Anderson has a hold of the lid, Ray looks up and he see's it coming but there's nothing he can do to prevent it and he is smacked over the head with the trash can lid! The lid bends severely but Anderson whacks Ray with it again, right over the skull! Bully Ray remains on his knees and from here, Anderson hits the ropes and boots Ray in the face with a variation of the facewash. This forces Bully Ray to fall back and Anderson hooks the inside leg. 1............ 2............NO! Bully Ray is no stranger to these types of matches and it's going to take a lot more than this to keep him down. Anderson realizes he has to keep on Bully Ray to prevent some sort of comeback from happening so Anderson decides to return the favor Bully Ray gave him earlier.
Anderson mounts Ray and now he is the one who sends his fists flying to the temple, Bully Ray is with it enough to try and cover up but the majority of the blows connect. Anderson pulls Ray up and now hits him with a series of right hands before hitting the ropes and hitting Ray with a running punch! NO! Bully Ray dodged and pulled Anderson into a reverse neckbreaker! Bully Ray is first back to his feet with Anderson closely following, Bully Ray invites Anderson to do something and Anderson tries to but, he is suckered in successfully by Bully Ray and is sent up in the air and falls down face first as he is hit with a flapjack! Anderson is winded here as he gets back to his feet, backing himself into the corner. Bully Ray charges at Anderson but is met with an elbow to the side of the head, this only temporarily stops Ray as he quickly regains his composure and again charges at Anderson, this time he is met with a boot to the face, Ray is sent off of Anderson again and Anderson looks to follow up quickly as he approaches Ray and tries to hit him with the Mic Check! NO! Bully Ray blocks it and sends his elbow Anderson's way, Anderson is forced off and Ray pulls him into a Bully Bomb! NO! Anderson uses his legs to block it, wrapping his legs around Ray's! Both men wrestle for supremacy here and it ends up looking quite scrappy, Anderson turns out of it and Ray looks to keep the advantage he has and hooks Anderson's head, he's going for the Cutter! HE HITS IT! NO! Anderson manages to avoid it and pulls Ray into an Inverted DDT! Anderson makes a quick cover. 1............ 2............NO!
Bully Ray popped his shoulder up, much to Anderson's dismay. Anderson looks to continue to punish Bully Ray from here as he grabs the Singapore Cane, Bully Ray gets on all fours and is whacked across the back with the cane! Bully Ray tries to fight through the pain but it's obvious it's hurting like hell. Ray turns over onto his back and now Anderson sends several shots down to Ray's midsection! Bully Ray tries to protect himself but it wont work, no matter where that cane hits, it's going to hurt like hell. Bully Ray tries to crawl away and he gets to his knees, begging Anderson not to hit him again. Anderson just continues to walk towards Ray and he raises the cane up, BULLY RAY HITS A LOW BLOW! Anderson wasted too much time and it cost him.
Bully Ray now grabs the cane off of Anderson and now he goes to work, smashing Anderson in the side of the legs and the ribs over and over again! He finally finishes off by hitting Anderson right int he face with it! The crowd all react to that uncomfortably! Bully Ray now hooks the leg. 1............ 2............ANDERSON KICKS OUT!
Ray isn't done with the Cane now, he has a grip of it again and waits for Anderson to find his feet, once he does, Ray lunges the cane right into Anderson's midsection and forces Anderson to bend over, now Ray lifts the cane and slams it across Anderson's back! Anderson's arches his back and then just falls down. Ray doesn't try to make a pin attempt, he turns his attention to something he used to be very familiar with, the table that Anderson brought into play.
Bully Ray sets the table up, right in front of the corner and then he grabs Anderson and drags him to the corner. Ray climbs up and sits down on the top turnbuckle and pulls Anderson up, he tries to lift Anderson up for a powerbomb! Anderson is doing everything he can to block it and luckily for him, he does. Anderson starts to jab Ray in the midsection and lifts him into a firemans carry! The crowd know what's going to happen here as Anderson lunges himself into a somersault with Bully Ray and hits him with The Plunge! THROUGH THE TABLE! Anderson makes the cover. 1............ 2............3! Anderson wins!
Mr. Anderson via pinfall
Here is your winner; Mr. Anderson! As a result, Bully Ray can no longer compete in Impact Wrestling!
The crowd explodes as they are finally rid of Bully Ray! Anderson doesn't call for his microphone to announce himself the winner, he just rolls out under the bottom rope and stumbles up the ramp, looking back at Bully Ray who is coming round and realizes what he has lost.
Oh my goodness, Don! Bully Ray has just been took out of commission by Mr. Anderson! Bully Ray cannot compete here anymore!
And how fitting is it that he goes out with what made him famous, through a table!
So what does this mean for Mr. Anderson? Can he move on to bigger and better things now Bully Ray isn't here to get in his way?
Bully Ray is in the ring and he looks like he is about to cry his eyes out. He yells up at the ceiling 'NO!' and stays in the ring for a good while before he gets up and finally exits it, the fans start to chant 'Na, na, na, na' to him and this pisses him off. Bully Ray gives them abuse as he walks up the ramp and we cut to the parking lot as a black stretch limousine pulls up.
It's the TNA World Heavyweight Champion; Bobby Roode! The crowd can be heard cheering for Roode's arrival and suddenly Jeremy Borash appears, so I guess he really has been waiting for Roode to arrive. Roode is dressed in a sharp charcoal suit with a white shirt and matching tie. He has the TNA World Heavyweight Championship draped over his shoulder.
Bobby Roode, welcome back to Impact Wrestling and congratulations on becoming the TNA World Heavyweight Champion at Bound For Glory.
Now, I know you know about the mini tournament that Kurt Angle has made, what are your feelings about it and the participants?
Y'know. James asked me the same thing. I won this championship by scratching and clawing through a grueling Bound For Glory Series, at the end of the day, it doesn't matter who I face, I will do whatever it takes to stay TNA World Heavyweight Champion.
What are your thoughts on potentially facing James Storm for the title?
If I happen to face James, that's cool. We both know this sport, we know that sometimes tag team partners and best friends need to get it on in the ring so, if me & James do happen to battle it out for the TNA World title, let the best man win.
Well, good luck to you.
Roode walks off with the announcers hyping up him as the next generation of TNA. We cut to another area backstage and see AJ Styles talking with a random backstage guy when suddenly James Storm walks up behind him, AJ turns around and is startled and looks like he wants to protect himself.
Woah, easy, AJ. Easy. I'm not here to do anything to you. I'm just here to wish you good luck in our match tonight.

JR: Here we go with this enormous Battle Royal and... WOW! ALMOST IMMEDIATLY, STING GETS THROWN OVER THE TOP ROPE BY HBK!
JL: This just got interesting!
JS: And the in-ring fight between the over 20 wrestlers is being overshadowed by Sting's shocked look!
JL: And it's not just Sting who's shocked!
JR: And while a enormous fight breaks in the ring, Kevin Steen and Kid Kash attack Michaels from behind and try to eliminate him! C'mon Shawn!
JL: C'mon Shawn you say, but I believe HBK is going down as well!
JS: On the upper right corner, McGuinness, Bryan, Orton, Angle, Mysterio and Booker all work on the Big Show, but most of them are being dominated... Kane and Goldberg are also dominating, and...

And also the one of Tommy Dreamer at the hands of Mr. Anderson.
JS: OH MY GOD!!! A SICKENING SPEAR ON BOOKER T BY GOLDBERG!
JL: Speaking of Spears, Edge - OUCH!! - just connected with an Edgecution on Mr. Anderson...
JR: And look at Kurt Angle there, working with Sin Cara and Trent Barretta. Man, what a match! A true golden opportunity for every of these Superstars.
JS: Ouch, William Regal leaves his fight with Daniel Bryan, Kevin Steen and Eddie Edwards to focus on the Wrestling Machine, Kurt Angle.
JR: And Regal TAKES THE BRASS KNUCKLES OFF HIS WRESTLING PANTS! REGAL MIGHT BE HITTING ANGLE WITH THEM!
JL: Watch out, Angle!
JR: Oh! Angle dodges! Brass knuckles on Barretta's face, and the charismatic superstar is eliminated!
JS: And look at this! From behind, Y2J attacking Regal!
JR: Jericho showing his opinion about Regal's unnecessary methods of eliminating men from this Battle Royal! Jericho almost eliminating Regal!
JS: Chavo from the back!
JL: Chavito with a dropkick sending Y2J and Regal to packing!
JR: Regal hangs on, and stays the apron, Y2J is skinning the cat, but Regal won't allow him!
JS: Oh GOD! Brass knuckles on Chris Jericho's face...
JR: And Jericho falls down from the apron to the floor...
JL: YEAH! EAT BRASS! EAT ELIMINATION, CHRIS!
JR: You disgust me with such comments, King... well anyways, WOW! Orton dodges a Davey Richards roundhouse kick, and Richards is eliminated!
JL: Look at this! Richards coming back to the ring!
JR: Oh c'mon! Somebody stop the man! Richards beating up Orton! Somebody stop this!
JS: Well, there are no DQ's in this Battle Royal so...
JR: Oh, and now Richards throwing Randy Orton over the top rope...
JL: While Richards is beating up Orton at the ringside, Cody Rhodes, while trying to Cross Rhodes HBK, was countered and took a deadly Sweet Chin Music sending him packing back to Eliminated Land...
JR: Davey Richards pulling the ring steps... oh no. Oh no, c'mon! NO! NO!
JS: OH MY GOD!!!!
JR: GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY!!! DR DRIVER ON THE RING STEPS! RANDY ORTON'S NECK MIGHT HAVE BEEN BROKEN!
(The crowd chants "ICW" and boos Richards)
JL: Orton's career might have been shortened there!
JR: My God, somebody call the EMT's!
(Paramedics and EMT's come as Orton does the stretcher job, putting Richards over as a heel. The crowd boos the hell out of Richards as he leaves)
JR: Thanks to Davey Richards, Randy Orton's career might be done for good. FOR GOOD!
JS: And in the meanwhile, El Generico was eliminated by Rey Mysterio and John Morrison, who are working quite well as a team...
JL: Wow, an innovative double moonsault by Mysterio and Morrison on Goldberg, and Seth Rollins out of nowhere with a beautiful hurricanrana on Mysterio!
JR: While I'm still worried about Randy Orton, the in-ring action between Morrison and Rollins is getting exci... OH! WMD BY BIG SHOW ON MORRISON! And Rollins going for the attack, but only getting eliminated!
JL: Goldberg is also dominating here! Everybody but Show and Goldberg down!
JR: And look at this. A big evil against a bigger evil. A showdown of mammal beasts!
JS: Looks like Show and Goldberg are speaking, but...
JR: TO HELL WITH SPEAKING, THE BIG SHOW AND GOLDBERG ARE STRIKING EACH OTHER, AND THE CROWD LOVES IT!
JL: And look at the full of attitude and cockiness Bobby Roode, trying to sneak on Goldberg... WMD on Roode!
JR: OUCH!!! And Show, unattentious, takes a brutal Spear by Goldberg!!
JS: Goldberg now grabbing Bobby Roode's layed body, and throws it over the top rope! The action is non-stop, the crowd is loving it, this is ICW!
JL: Nigel McGuinness, Rob Van Dam and Eddie Edwards unite to try to attack Goldberg as well, and this time they suceed... but, OUCH, there it goes. EDDIE EDWARDS THROWN OVER THE TOP ROPE AS WELL!
JR: Goldberg is an unstoppable monster, and he will surely be one of the top contenders to leave this battle royal as one of the top 8!
JL: Look at this... Jackhammer on RVD! And Kenta Kobashi and Triple H also taking punishment from Goldberg! And a vicious belly-to-belly on the wasted Mr. Anderson, who was taking lots of punishment from his new arch-enemy Edge!
JS: Goldberg looks unstoppable, but KANE IS BACK FROM THE ASHES AS HE SITS UP! And he's ready to fight Goldberg!
JR: Goldberg running to a new Spear, but takes a VICIOUS Brogue Kick by Sheamus, who comes from the NOWHERE! Kane uppercuts Sheamus, and taunts Goldberg now...
JL: We might be seeing Goldberg's sentence to hell...
JR: Chokeslam From Hell connected! Chavo on the top rope too... Frog Splash!
JS: Wait! Chavo's celebration cut short! CHAVO IS CHOKESLAMMED TO THE FLOOR BY KANE! CHAVO IS ELIMINATED!
JL: Morrison from the back, trying to throw Kane! Kane pulling Morrison to the apron! Vicious fist trading between Kane and Morrison!
JR: And now Wade Barrett, right after a thundering spinning side slam on Sheamus, sticks his nose in their business! But Morrison fights back and hip tosses Barrett into the apron as well! A 3-way on the apron!
JL: I think it's the 1st time EVER that there is a 3-way fight on the ring apron... LOOK OUT!
JS: MARK HENRY! HENRY OUT OF NOWHERE, RUNS AND CRASHES AGAINST THE THREE MEN!
JR: All three men fall down to the ground! Kane, Morrison, Barrett, three potential Final 8 contenders, taken down by Mark Henry!
JS: And Kurt Angle, out of nowhere, applies the Ankle Lock on the World's Strongest Man!
JR: The pression on that ankle is bigger than anything! Angle releases the hold, and suplexes the world!
JS: And Angle ELIMINATES Kevin Steen!

(Ding Ding Ding)
LG: Ladies and gentlemen, your Final 8 of the Gold Rush Tournament: MARK HENRY, WILLIAM REGAL, MR. ANDERSON, EDGE, GOLDBERG, TRIPLE H, SHAWN MICHAELS, AND SIN CARA!!!!!

Re: Be the Booker Showcase Thread
I whipped up my own writing of a Rock/John Cena match at WrestleMania 28 while I was bored. There's a reason for the result being the way it is.The Rock vs. John Cena - WrestleMania 28
A video package airs highlighting the rivalry between Rock and John Cena, dating back to around 2006 when John Cena first talked smack about The Rock in interviews.
We come back to the live arena and the fans erupt in a "Rocky! Rocky!" chant. A large object is on the stage, they're inflattable letters. The color is red and the word reads "HATE." The fans boo as fag starts filling up the top of the stage and then...
"My Time Is Now" hits and John Cena walks out to a HUGE amount of heat in the arena. Every single person pouring tons of heat on John Cena as John Cena runs through the inflattable letters reading "HATE" and John Cena runs down the rampway and slides into the ring. John Cena poses for the fans and then runs off the ropes and throws his hat into the crowd. John Cena pulls off his t-shirt and throws it into the crowd and then takes off his dog tags and waits in the corner.
Suddenly, a fan throws John Cena's shirt back into the ring that John Cena threw into the crowd. John Cena looks angry as he picks the shirt up and walks over to the other side of the ring and throws the shirt into the crowd. John Cena walks away, but is greeted with his shirt being thrown back onto his head. John Cena pulls the shirt off his head and throws the shirt to the floor on the outside as he waits in the corner.
A several seconds...
"IF YA SMELL..." is heard followed by "Electrifying" and The Rock comes out to the loudest pop the WWE has seen in YEARS. The Rock walks down the ramp confidently and walks up the steel steps, walks along the apron and then poses on the second turnbuckle on the outside for the fans as The Rock soaks up the cheers in his hometown. The Rock climbs down the turnbuckles and enters the ring as he glares at John Cena while walking past him, steps up to the second turnbuckle in the corner and raises his arm with a closed fist to pose for the fans as he soaks in more cheers. The Rock raises his head like he's taking a sniff and then breathes out as he lowers his head and stares a hole through John Cena. The Rock climbs down the corner and stands in the opposite corner of John Cena.
Justin Roberts: Ladies and gentlemen, the following is the MAIN EVENT and the biggest match in WWE history! First, to my left, weighing in at 242 pounds, from West Newbury, Massachusetts, JOHN CENA!!!!! (Intense heat). And to my right, weighing in at 265 pounds, from Miami, Florida, THE ROCK!!!!!! (CRAZY POP).
Battle of Era's; The Biggest Match of All Time
The Rock vs. John Cena
The fans go insane with a "Rocky! Rocky" chant as The Rock and John Cena don't move out of their respective corners. The Rock looks into the crowd and soaks in all the cheers as The Rock and John Cena approach each other in the center of the ring and go face to face. The Rock and John Cena talk trash to each other and then The Rock points into the crowd and tells John Cena that they HATE him. John Cena lips that it's fine and he's going to do him. The Rock nods his head and lips "oh yeah?" before The Rock SLAPS John Cena across the face. The Rock pushes John Cena's head to push John Cena away from him and the fans go CRAZY as The Rock stares at John Cena. John Cena turns his head to The Rock and quickly lunges into The Rock and lays into The Rock with huge right hands. The fans pour intense heat on John Cena as John Cena irish whips The Rock and attempts a clothesline but The Rock dodges it! The Rock runs back at John Cena and dodges another attempted clothesline and then bounces off the ropes and runs back at John Cena and The Rock TAKES JOHN CENA DOWN WITH A FLYING CLOTHESLINE! The fans go crazy as The Rock gets up to his feet as does John Cena and John Cena runs at The Rock but The Rock takes Cena down with a quick arm drag! Both men get right up to their feet and John Cena runs at The Rock again and The Rock takes John Cena down with another arm drag! Both men get right up to their feet and John Cena runs at The Rock again but The Rock side steps John Cena and THROWS JOHN CENA OVER THE TOP ROPE TO THE OUTSIDE! The fans go insane as The Rock taunts John Cena in the ring with his own "You Can't See Me" taunt and the fans go insane with a "Rocky! Rocky!" chant.
The Rock exits the ring and approaches John Cena on the outside of the ring. The Rock picks John Cena up and throws him face first in to the ring apron. The Rock then picks John Cena up and throws John Cena chest first down on the barricade! John Cena drops to his knees and holds his chest in tremendous pain as he struggles to catch his breath. The Rock picks John Cena up and throws John Cena down face first on the announce table. The Rock rolls into the ring and back out to break the count which got up to 6 and then goes back to John Cena. The Rock bends down to pick up John Cena, but John Cena quickly gets up to his feet, hoists up The Rock and John Cena backs The Rock into the ring post spine first! The Rock screams in pain as he drops to his knees and holds his back in pain. John Cena rests along the apron as the fans start a "Cena Sucks! Cena Sucks!" chant. John Cena picks The Rock up and grabs him by the arm and John Cena STRONGLY irish whips The Rock into the steel ring steps, knocking them over and the fans pour even more heat on John Cena as The Rock lays on the floor holding his shoulder in pain. John Cena rolls into the ring and exits it again to break the count, which got to 8. John Cena picks The Rock up slowly and throws The Rock back into the ring.

John Cena quickly turns The Rock over on his back and hooks the leg for the cover! 1...2...THE ROCK KICKS OUT! John Cena picks The Rock up and strongly irish whips The Rock into the corner. The Rock bounces out of the corner and John Cena kicks The Rock in the gut and plants The Rock in the mat with a gutwrench suplex! John Cena quickly gets up to his feet, runs off the ropes and attempts a leg drop on The Rock but The Rock moves out of the way! John Cena holds his right leg in pain and The Rock quickly gets to his feet and drops his elbow on the right leg of John Cena! The Rock gets up and drops another elbow on the right leg of John Cena and then drops ANOTHER elbow on the right leg of John Cena! The Rock gets up to his feet and lifts the leg of John Cena and starts kicking at the thigh of John Cena's right leg. The Rock holds onto the right leg as The Rock exits the ring and The Rock drags John Cena to the ring post. The Rock pulls John Cena's leg back and then WHIPS IT BACK INTO THE STEEL RING POST! John Cena screams in pain as The Rock throws John Cena's leg back into the ring post and then starts elbowing John Cena's right leg as John Cena screams in pain! The Rock continues elbowing John Cena in the right leg and then nails him with a punch as John Cena screams in pain as he backs away in to the middle of the ring. The Rock enters the ring and starts stalking John Cena. The Rock grabs both of John Cena's legs and the fans go insane as they know what's next! The Rock wraps John Cena's legs around one of his and attempts the sharpshooter, but can't turn John Cena over! John Cena fights it as the fans start a "Rocky!" chant.
John Cena continues to fight it until he finally gets his legs off from around the Rock's and John Cena uses all his leg strength he has left to push The Rock off and THE ROCK TAKES DOWN THE REFEREE OFF THE IMPACT! The Rock gets up to his feet and looks a bit disappointed that the referee is out. The Rock checks on the referee before he turns around and John Cena takes The Rock down with a flying shoulder tackle! The fans go crazy with heat as John Cena runs off the ropes and takes The Rock down with another flying shoulder tackle! John Cena runs off the ropes again towards The Rock and attempts ANOTHER flying shoulder tackle, but The Rock side steps John Cena and tosses John Cena over the top rope and John Cena hits the announce table back first off the impact! The Rock talks trash as John Cena holds his back in pain and the fans go insane as The Rock exits the ring. The Rock stops and looks down at John Cena, and then slowly raises his head and looks at the announce table and The Rock goes into deep thought. The Rock thinks about it as the fans go crazy with a "We Want Tables" chant and The Rock clears the announce table and the fans go insane! The Rock throws the announce table cover on top of John Cena and then drops the monitors to the floor. The Rock picks John Cena up but John Cena GIVES THE ROCK A LOW BLOW! The fans pour intense heat on John Cena as The Rock is bent over and holding his groin in pain as he rests on the announce table. John Cena picks The Rock up on his shoulders and the fans go crazy with the boos, but The Rock quickly climbs down off Cena's shoulders, drops to his knees and gives John Cena a LOW BLOW of his own! The fans go insane as The Rock runs in front of John Cena and plants John Cena face first on the floor with a huge DDT!
The Rock pulls himself up to his feet with help of the announce table and stares into the crowd as the fans go crazy. The Rock looks at the announce table and then picks John Cena up off the floor and places John Cena on the announce table. The Rock gets up on the announce table and stands on it as The Rock pulls John Cena up to his feet and gets John Cena in the position of the Rock Bottom! The fans go insane as The Rock lifts John Cena up and PLANTS HIM THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE WITH A THUNDEROUS ROCK BOTTOM!!!! The fans go insane as both men lay motionless through the broken announce table! The Rock rolls over towards the ring and uses the apron to pull himself up to his feet. The Rock gets up to his feet and the fans erupt in a "Rocky! Rocky!" chant. The Rock rolls into the ring and leans against the ropes as he stares into the crowd. John Cena staggers but can't get to his feet, so The Rock exits the ring and throws John Cena back into the ring and The Rock quickly enters it and goes for a cover but THERE IS NO REF! The fans boo as The Rock turns around and sees the ref is still motionless on the mat. The Rock gets up to his feet and walks over to the referee and tries to revive the referee. The Rock pulls on the referee shirt and tries to get him up and the ref is finally moving a bit. The Rock yells at the referee and says "get your bitch ass up!" The Rock turns around and finds John Cena on his feet and JOHN CENA GETS THE ROCK, LIFTS THE ROCK UP AND PLANTS THE ROCK IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RING WITH A ROCK BOTTOM!!!! John Cena takes The Rock's own move and nails the Rock Bottom and the fans pour an insane amount of heat on John Cena as John Cena crawls towards The Rock and hooks the leg for the cover! The referee slowly crawls into position and makes the count... 1...........2...........3! NO!!!!! THE ROCK JUST GETS THE SHOULDER UP AND THE FANS GO INSANE!
John Cena sits up and is in shock as John Cena is yelling at the referee. John Cena gets up to his feet and backs the referee into the corner and is telling him to count faster. John Cena turns around and runs at The Rock but The Rock recovers and PLANTS CENA IN THE CENTER OF THE RING WITH A HUGE SPINEBUSTER! The Rock quickly gets up to his feet and looks into the crowd as the fans go crazy. The Rock kicks John Cena's arm to his side and then pulls off his elbow pad and throws it into the audience! The Rock slaps his chest and then points in both directions and The Rock runs off the ropes, then runs off the other set of the ropes and then The Rock hits John Cena with the most electrifying move in all of entertainment, the People's Elbow!!! The Rock slowly turns over and hooks the leg of John Cena for the cover! 1...2...3! NO!!!! JOHN CENA JUST GETS THE SHOULDER UP AND THE FANS START POURING THE HEAT ON CENA!
The Rock gets up and motions that it's over as he squats behind John Cena, setting him up for the Rock Bottom.

Both men get up to their feet and John Cena lifts The Rock up and plants him in the mat with another spin out powerbomb! John Cena gets up to his feet, does the "you can't see me" in The Rock's face, but stops. John Cena walks to the corner and climbs up to the top turnbuckle as the fans boo.

Re: Be the Booker Showcase Thread
MY VISION OF THE AMBROSE/ROLLINS LUMBERJACK MATCH AT SUMMERSLAM
*After the promo package airs...*
DING! DING! DING!
Justin Roberts: "The following contest is a LUMBERJACK MATCH!!!"
The crowd pops, as they are ready to watch the long-awaited collision between Rollins and Ambrose.
The lumberjacks are already positioned ringside, waiting to confine the wrestlers inside the ring.
The lumberjacks are: Cesaro, Mark Henry, Titus O'Neil, Heath Slater, Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston, Big E, Zack Ryder, Tyson Kidd, Justin Gabriel, R-Truth, Damien Sandow, Bo Dallas, The Great Khali, Fandango, Adam Rose, Ryback, Curtis Axel, Sin Cara, Fernando and Diego.
Seth Rollins' theme hits, to major boos and "You Sold Out" chants, as he confidently comes out, to the sound of his lame-ass theme song, with a confident grin in his face and the MITB briefcase with him. He knows that he has nothing to lose in this match against Ambrose, and he knows that this his opportunity to finally get rid of Ambrose and his haunting of him.
Rollins looks at the lumberjacks with disgust, but also with pride, knowing that he is Mr. MITB and he's the one with a golden opportunity to become World Champion. The lumberjacks aren't too pleased with that. Rollins is focused, ready for the upcoming war with his biggest rival.
To the sound of a massive pop, Dean Ambrose's music plays, and Ambrose doesn't hesitate in showing up. With his now trademark taped shoulder, Ambrose wastes no time in running into the ring, passing by the lumberjacks; he can't wait to finally put Rollins in his place, and he immediately makes it to the ring and takes down Rollins and this match is underway!
DING! DING! DING!
Ambrose starting off with a Spear-like takedown and just repeatedly punching Rollins as much as he can!
Ambrose vowed that he would put Rollins' teeth down his throat, and he's trying that by punching Rollins as hard as he can!
"Ambrose" chants immediatly rain the Staples Center as Dean is beating the hell out of Seth, now getting up and stomping Rollins' head multiple times!
Rollins holds on onto his face in pain but he reacts at the same time, trying to get away from Ambrose and breath in hard before he takes actions, but Ambrose won't let go! He wants to utterly dismantle Seth Rollins and he won't waste this opportunity!
Rollins tried to escape but has only placed himself in the wrong spot, sitting in the upper right corner, and Ambrose is just punching him non-stop! The referee is counting!
1! 2! 3! 4!
Just before 5, Ambrose finally stops his initial onslaught, to the slight dismay of the WWE Universe...
OR DOES HE?! AMBROSE IMMEDIATELY GOES BACK ATTACKING ROLLINS! This time, even more aggressively, somehow! The referee has no choice but to count again!
1! 2! 3! 4!
Ambrose lets go, but he immediatly attacks Rollins again, with multiple lefts and stomps all over Rollins!
Most lumberjacks are loving this, and so is the crowd, who is still chanting for "Ambrose" out loud! And the referee had started counting again, but Ambrose let go at 4. Ambrose takes that time to play a little to the crowd, screaming and shouting that he will end Rollins' career!
OH! Rollins finally gets some offence in! Some hard and quick kicks on Ambrose's stomach and lower body as he's still laying sit down on the corner, trying to get himself back in after the initial beatdown by Ambrose!
But Ambrose doesn't take that lightly, as he counter-strikes with a HUGE clothesline! And we get our first cover of the match!
Rollins kicks out at 1 and a half pretty much, but he has no time to breath as Ambrose goes back on the assault with multiple punches and kicks!
Ambrose is punching like a true MANIAC, as we can see Rollins' head whiplash left and right from the fists of the Lunatic himself!
"I'm going to punch your teeth down your throat, Seth Rollins!!!!"
That was Ambrose himself shouting that in Rollins' face, he who vowed to do just that a couple of weeks ago on Raw - but Seth Rollins gets some right hands in, and sends Ambrose off with a leg push that rolls him over backwards!
That doesn't please the WWE fans, who boo as Rollins moans in pain after the brutal assault that Ambrose had on him - meanwhile, Ambrose goes immediately back on attack, but Rollins SMARTLY, SMARTLY places himself behind the referee in the same corner he was a while ago!
Rollins, like a true weasel! Protected by the referee, Rollins can now take some time to recover, as Ambrose is rushing and screaming in the ref's face to get out of the way! Ambrose is risking a DQ loss here!
Not that he cares, since he simply wants to hurt Seth Rollins, but a DQ loss wouldn't be the best way for reven-OH! ROLLINS, NOW UP AGAIN IN THE CORNER, JUST SLAPPED AMBROSE'S FACE OFF! An act of defiance that may have only thrown gasoline on Dean Ambrose's fire!
Rollins now screams that Ambrose isn't better than him, but Dean Ambrose only looks back at him with a sadistic, evil stare!!
Ambrose goes back on the attack like a madman, but Rollins, to the boos of the crowd, hides himself behind the referee in the corner again! The ref is in-between the two men in the middle of a war right now, and Ambrose isn't taking it anymore! He just pushed the ref out of the way!!
But again like a weasel, Seth Rollins rolled out of the ring!
But wait, this IS a Lumberjack match after all! Mr. Rollins didn't think it through, as Mark Henry ALONE intimidates him enough to get him on the backtrack, and all the others look on!
Rollins, with an unsatisfied face, stands in the apron looking at Henry and the other lumberjacks as...
HEY!!! AMBROSE KNOCKS ROLLINS OFF THE APRON!
Rollins falls onto Henry, Zack Ryder and Heath Slater on the outside!
A move that may have given Rollins the little "rest break" he needed, but that also compromised him on the outside! Ambrose looks on, satisfied but also angry!
On the outside, as Slater and Ryder are both down, a minimally stunned Henry, Titus O'Neil and Tyson Kidd all grab Rollins, preparing to throw him back in the ring...
OH NO! AMBROSE WITH A SUICIDE DIVE!! TAKING OUT ALL MEN UP WITH ROLLINS!
The crowd is pleased, popping hard for that wild move by Ambrose, who doesn't feel that's nearly enough pain for Rollins to suffer!
The remaining lumberjacks attempt to get Ambrose and Rollins back in the ring, but Ambrose REFUSES to it, and he's punching ANYONE who attempts to throw him or Rollins back in!
The lumberjacks will not strike back, they will simply attempt to stop the madness outside the ring, that's what they were brought in for in the first place, but ironically it's Ambrose, the man who actually came up with the Lumberjack match concept in the first place, who's attacking THEM!
Ambrose now with a chair! Ambrose with a chair!! Any lumberjack who dares to try to send him back in is getting struck with steel! Cesaro! Gabriel! Axel! R-Truth! Rose! Sandow! All feel the pain of the steel chair in their backs and stomachs! Ambrose is behaving like a lunatic, and the LA crowd is LOVING IT!!
Back inside, the referee is on a count-out process, but Ambrose immediatly breaks it. But that break, alongside all the time Ambrose took to fight off the lumberjacks, is enough to give Rollins the break he needs, as he kicks and strikes Ambrose with all his power, in a move of pure will to simply hold on!
Rollins has Ambrose... HE THROWS AMBROSE INTO THE SPANISH ANNOUNCE TABLE!! AMBROSE FLIES OVER THE TABLE INTO THE ANNOUNCERS THEMSELVES!
Rollins, as the crowd boos and the lumberjacks look on in insecurity, has a facial expression of pain, desperation and anger all in one, as he goes back in the ring and tells the referee to count Ambrose out as soon as possible!
And the referee does start a count - takes Ambrose until 4 to leave the lap of the Spanish announcers and crawl onto the top of the Spanish announce table!
The lumberjacks, albeit hesitantly, offer him help, but Ambrose refuses their help!
Moments later, the referee is up to 7 now! Ambrose is ready to return to the ring...
Wait, Rollins runs the ropes! He's heading towards Ambrose's direction! AND HE LEAPS WITH A SOMMERSAULT PLANCHA OVER THE TOP ROPE, CRASHING ALL THE WAY DOWN ON AMBROSE AND ON SOME OF THE LUMBERJACKS!! Rollins trying his hardest to win in the easiest way, to have Ambrose be counted out!
The crowd chants "HOLY SHIT!" loudly, as Rollins, still selling the pain of the beatdown he took, returns to the ring, and pleads the referee to restart the outside count on Ambrose, broken by Rollins' impressive leap!
Ambrose shows some signs of life...
EEEEHHH-YES!! Supported by the bodies and strenghts of the downed and some standing lumberjacks, Ambrose gets back up...
... but nearly comes down again! He's kept up by the ringside apron! The announce table bump and the plancha took some wind out of him, but he knows that he'll only get back on Rollins if he gets back in the ring!
Rollins is pleading for the referee to count faster!
Ambrose is up on his own feet, claws into the apron at 9...
YES! HE BREAKS THE COUNT! HE'S IN BEFORE THE 10 COUNT! ROLLINS CAN'T BELIEVE IT, AND HE WASTES NO TIME IN STOMPING AMBROSE VIOLENTLY, AND PUSHING HIM BACK TO THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING!
The lumberjacks cannot do anything to help Ambrose, given how he made it clear already he doesn't want their
help, but Ambrose struggles and crawls into getting right back up, like a warrior in a battlefield who just won't give up the fight!
AMBROSE IS UP AGAIN! The referee is counting, but Rollins is immensely frustrated at that sight! He already knows that Ambrose is on a whole another level of bloodlust tonight, that he wants to carve Rollins' face, and Rollins doesn't want to win and humilliate and end Ambrose anymore - now he simply wants to survive! He just wants this match to end as soon as possible!! And a count-out win would be perfect for his case! But not when he knows that Ambrose will beat the count again!
Rollins knows that he has to do it again, and he runs the ropes again, going for the Sommersault plancha one more time to take down Ambrose...
AMBROSE GETS OUT OF THE WAY THIS TIME!! ROLLINS CRASHLANDS ONTO THE LUMBERJACKS AND EVEN THE ANNOUNCE TABLE!!!
The crowd is amazed, pushing for Ambrose, as he found the opening he needed to get back on the strike-filled destruction of his former partner, as Ambrose quickly breaks the restarted counting by the ref, and we've returned to square one - AMBROSE BEATING UP ROLLINS!!
Rollins goes face first on the main announce table multiple times, repeatedly, the one last time moving the announce table's cover and putting Rollins on top of the table! This is a WAR now, an absolute WAR!!
The lumberjacks try to sneak on Ambrose to stop in, but Ambrose sights them and punches them off! Some of them, particularly Cesaro, Sandow and Rybaxel, are now getting seemingly frustrated with Ambrose's ticking off of them, and no one can blame them really.
Rollins, now on top of the announce table, is attempting to fight off Ambrose, kicking and punching away, but Ambrose won't stop!
Rollins pushes Ambrose onto the opposite announce table! Ambrose rolls over in the table he fell onto, giving Rollins time to recover! Rollins then comes down, holding onto his face...
Wait, Ambrose is running the announce tables!! AND HE DROPKICKS ROLLINS ONTO THE BARRICADE!!
A minor "Holy Shit!" chant breaks out, while most of the audience on the Staples Center is now BONKERS for this match, as Ambrose continues to beat up Rollins!
But Rollins, the smart bastard he is, bites Ambrose's face behind the barricade, and attempts to breath in and get away from him, to the boos of the crowd! Ambrose chases him, as both jump over the barricade, and pass by some lumberjacks, right back into the ring!!
Ambrose AGAIN has a good hold of Rollins, and with Rollins in his hands, he gets him back by biting Rollins' face for 4 straight seconds!! The crowd LOVED that, retribution for what had just happened!
Ambrose continues to strike Rollins' face in as a loud "Let's go Ambrose!" chant breaks!
A CUT IS SPOT ON ROLLINS' FACE! ROLLINS IS BLEEDING!! THE CONSTANT POUNDING BY AMBROSE WOULDN'T KEEP ROLLINS' FACE CLEAN FOREVER, WOULD IT?!
Ambrose adores that sight, licking his lips at the sight of Rollins' bloodied face, and keeps disturbingly shouting how "that blood isn't even the worst to come, Seth"...
Ambrose officially FLIPS, and goes outside to get some chairs in the ring, probably the same ones he used against the lumberjacks! The referee tries to throw them back out, but Ambrose won't let that happen!
But the chairs are a good enough distraction for Rollins to low blow Ambrose!!
Feeling his own pain in the process, takes him a few seconds but Rollins finally gets a pin attempt on Ambrose after his illegal trick!
Ambrose kicks out at 2 and a half!!
Rollins is frustrated, beat up and in disbelief. His face bloodied with all of that. He needs to find a winning break, and a count-out won't be enough.
Rollins looks on... and he envisions the taped shoulder of Ambrose! A devilish grin on Rollins pretty much marks
the next thing he will do - absolutely destroy Ambrose's injured shoulder!
And he wastes no time, DRIVING AMBROSE SHOULDER FIRST ONTO THE NEAREST RING POST!! AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN HE DOES IT! Ambrose SHRIEKS in pain!!
Rollins stomps, strikes and mauls Ambrose's injured shoulder as much as he can, at points like an enraged lunatic, calling back to the start of the match in which Ambrose did pretty much the same to him!
"You're not better than me, Ambrose!! You are NOTHING to me!!!"
Rollins shouts that in Ambrose's face, while he beats up the arm and anything that composes and dresses the body of his arch-nemesis! Like a shark smelling blood in the water!
The faces of Cesaro, Damien Sandow, Rybaxel among others on the outside are now expressing happiness at the vision of Ambrose getting a beatdown himself, after his madman rampage on the outside a few moments ago...
Rollins WITH A CURBSTOMP ON AMBROSE'S SHOULDER! A CURPSTOMP ON AMBROSE'S SHOULDER!
A massive boo-fest erupts inside Staples, as Seth Rollins just Curbstomped Ambrose's injured shoulder, Ambrose in enormous pain, as Rollins attempts to cover him!
NO! Ambrose kicks out at 2!
Maybe not exactly a move that would win him a match, but it sure worked in Rollins' favor to hit his finisher on the injured shoulder of his biggest adversary in life, both professionally and personally! Ambrose's face of grief tells the story, really!! But Rollins isn't satisfied at all, he's more frustrated than ever!
Rollins continues to pummel and stomp and sistematically tear the shoulder apart, Ambrose attempts to get a punch but he cannot, either because Rollins will dodge it easily or because he's in too much pain via the shoulder to get up and fight back!
Rollins TWISTING the arm of Ambrose! The shoulder is being torn to shreds! Ambrose SCREAMING!
"Ambrose" chants have filled this sold-out Staples Center here in Los Angeles, as Seth Rollins, with a facial expression of pure HATRED and DISGUST, is attempting to sistematically destroy the injured limb of Ambrose!
Sitting there twisting and cracking his shoulder!
But the crowd's rally-up, and his will to never give up, have made Dean Ambrose get back on his feet, even under the pressure of Rollins' holds!
Some right hands on Rollins' kidneys! Ambrose attempting to escape!
Ambrose punches Rollins off, escaping his grip! He now runs the ropes... OH, Rollins outsmarted him, by running in his direction with a knee directly in Ambrose's stomach!
DOUBLE KNEE ARMBREAKER, ALBERTO DEL RIO STYLE, ON AMBROSE'S INJURED ARM/SHOULDER! Ambrose jumps in pain, screaming in agony!
Rollins with a sadistic smile in his face; the lumberjacks looking on, some satisfied and some worried! Rollins moves to a cover!
And a safe kick-out by Ambrose!
Rollins punches the mat in frustration! He has done a remarkable job of pummelling Dean's shoulder as hard as he can, but he can't get Dean Ambrose down for a 3 count!
Rollins looks on, spitting his own blood, as the LA crowd once again attempts to rally-up Ambrose...
And Rollins continues to kick down Ambrose, be it on the shoulder or anywhere else... who knows if its a wise move by Mr. MITB to stop worrying about the injured limb.
Maybe I spoke too soon - Rollins goes back to working Ambrose's shoulder, more methodically this time around!
Elbows and stomps for poor Dean Ambrose!
Rollins driving Ambrose's arm into the mat violently! And he brags about it meanwhile!
"CM Punk" chants now by the LA crowd, because those would never miss out....
Seeking for attention, Seth Rollins now playing the crowd, bowing down to them in satisfaction, to the EXPLOSION of boos in Los Angeles! Might not be the best idea to let Ambrose go, though!
Rollins... apparently has stopped focusing on Ambrose now, since he's getting in the face of the lumberjacks!
He's bitching out on The Great Khali and Ryder and Henry!! In fact, pretty much every single one of the lumberjacks!
Ambrose takes that distraction as a recovering opportunity...
AMBROSE WITH A RUNNING CROSSBODY!! ROLLINS WAS DISTRACTED BY HIS OWN EGO, AND WHEN HE TURNED AROUND, AMBROSE WAS BACK UP AGAIN!!!
A running crossbody by the Lunatic Fringe, as Ambrose SLOWLY crawls to the cover, still in pain from the assault on his shoulder!
Tw-NO! Rollins kicks out!
Ambrose pretty much a one-arm man, but he pummels Rollins as hard as he can and as fast as he can with his one functional arm!
Both men up, trading right hands! Ambrose is faster, gets more in!
On the ropes, Ambrose one-arm-only irish-whips Rollins, Rollins reverses... Ambrose kicks him in the head!
Ambrose walks up to him, but Rollins with an Enziguiri!
A stunned Ambrose goes through the ropes, maybe signaling for a Jawbreaker clothesline counter...
NO! Ambrose was going for the Jawbreaker indeed, BUT ROLLINS BROUGHT AMBROSE'S ARM DOWN AND LOCKED IN A FUJIWARA ARMBAR ON THE INJURED ARM!! In the style of submission holds like the Crippler Crossface (though the WWE would never mention that one though...)!
The crowd blasts that counter with boos, as Ambrose is making his pain as vocal as possible, but attempting to fight it off by crawling to the ropes!
Rollins has the Fujiwara locked in as hard as he can!!
Ambrose reaching closer to the ropes...
HE'S ALMOST THERE...
HEY!!! CESARO IS PULLING THE ROPES BACK!!! Cesaro helping Rollins!! The referee does nothing about it, but he should!
Possibly in retribution for what transpired in this match already - and plenty of the lumberjacks are supporting Cesaro's actions! Rollins smiling as that happens!
Wait... Los Matadores and Sin Cara pull Cesaro off!! The ropes are reachable now - and Ambrose makes it!!! Rollins is LIVID!
Rollins lets go of the Fujiwara before he gets counted out, but he's absolutely engulfed in wrath, even swearing loudly about it...
OH MAN! ON THE OUTSIDE, CESARO PERFORMED THE VERY EUROPEAN UPPERCUT ON SIN CARA WITH ALL HIS POWER! If Cara isn't straight up DEAD from that uppercut, he must be God!
Sin Cara CONTOURTED on the outside!! Los Matadores attempt to help - but Cesaro fights them off too! Damien Sandow, Ryback and Curtis Axel help him out! The heels are getting over in this fight on the outside!
The crowd chanting for Cesaro, the referee attempting to control this outside grudge between the lumberjacks, while Seth Rollins sneaks on the outside, passing by the distracted lumberjacks, and grabs his MITB briefcase!
Rollins has the briefcase, and he's awaiting Ambrose - maybe a golden opportunity to beat him for good! The ref is unaware of Rollins' newest attempt at victory the cheap way! The crowd turns its attention to that, and boos it!
Rollins goes for it!! He's heading towards Ambrose with the briefcase!!....
NO! AMBROSE COUNTERS WITH A LOW BLOW!!! PAYBACK FOR ROLLINS' OWN ACTIONS EARLIER IN THE MATCH!
The referee never saw it! Ambrose cheats back!! AND A DDT FOR GOOD MEASURE!
Ambrose still holding on the injured arm, now on a cover position, screaming for the referee to count! And the referee, who finally got the outside grudge controlled, turns its attention back! Cover time!
Thr-NO!! ROLLINS KICKS OUT!
The crowd erupts at that near-fall! Everybody thought Rollins might've not kicked out from that!
Ambrose holds onto his injured shoulder, and looks at Rollins' bloodied face and downed body with intention of harm!
"THIS IS AWESOME!!! *clap x5* THIS IS AWESOME!!!"
The LA crowd showing the respect for this WAR between Rollins and Dean Ambrose, a war that has been in the making since Seth turned on Ambrose and Roman Reigns, his former Shield partners!
Ambrose rushes back on control after a little rest period of his own...
...but Rollins rolls out of the ring!! Much to the dismay of the LA crowd and of Ambrose's, Rollins found another way out of a certain beatdown!
Ambrose sees no time to waste though... Rollins is up on the outside, the lumberjacks surrounding him... AMBROSE RUNS THE ROPES AGAIN...
SUICIDE DI-NO!!! ROLLINS BLOCKS AMBROSE'S ATTEMPT AT ANOTHER SUICIDE DIVE WITH A STRONG RIGHT HAND!
Rollins now, wiping his face covered in blood... gets in Mark Henry's face?
Rollins is harassing the World's Strongest Man! A bold move that may or may not go right for Mr. MITB! What is he attempting to achieve with this!
Rollins SPITS in Henry's face! I can't believe he just did that!! MARK HENRY IS LIVID!!!
Oh my God, Mark Henry looks like he wants to MURDER someone - Seth Rollins may have just committed the biggest mistake of his life!
The lumberjacks all step back here, then Henry steps back... AND HE RUNS IN ROLLINS' DIRECTION!
ROLLINS ROLLS BACK INTO THE RING, DODGING HENRY! HENRY CAN'T HOLD HIS MOMENTUM AND COLLIDES WITH AN UNFORTUNATE XAVIER WOODS INSTEAD!!
Meanwhile, Rollins is able to duck Ambrose's potential assault, driving him shoulder first into the lower right corner...
Oh oh... on the outside, Big E and Kofi Kingston see their leader, Xavier Woods, downed... AND THEY START ATTACKING MARK HENRY!!
HENRY PUSHES THEM OFF INTO THE BARRICADE!! But Woods recovers, and the numbers game gets on Henry!
Slater-Gator come in the aid of Mark Henry!! A war breaks down on the outside, the other lumberjacks try to break it!!
For the second time in the match, the referee is distracted by an outside grudge...
Oh, oh no, oh no! Rollins has the MITB briefcase again!!
ROLLINS PURPOSEFULLY SET UP THIS SECOND FIGHT BETWEEN THE LUMBERJACKS TO DISTRACT THE REFEREE!!
He has the briefcase, Ambrose is in pain from the collision with the post...
AMBROSE IS HIT IN THE HEAD WITH THE BRIEFCASE!!!!
ROLLINS CHEATING!! ROLLINS CHEATING!! BUT HE MAY HAVE JUST WON THE MATCH!!! THE REFEREE NEVER SAW IT!
The crowd boos the building's roof off!!! Rollins throws the briefcase out of the ring, and then immediately runs to the referee, to make him turn his attention on the match, and he eventually does! Rollins goes for a cover...
NO!!! AMBROSE KICKS OUT!!!!! THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!
Rollins never expressed a more shocked face in his entire life, I'd bet!!!
The WWE Universe is on their feet, popping the hardest they can for that nearfall!! The lumberjacks themselves are in disbelief!!!
Rollins wastes no time in going back on Ambrose, stomping as hard as he can!
But unsure of what to do, Rollins distracts himself again, getting in the referee's face and screaming about how that wasn't a 3 count!! Really, even I was sure that that was going to be the match ender!
Ambrose moves in the mat, slowly trying to get up...
... but an incensed Rollins gets back on him, and puts him in a powerbomb position! Gets him up on his shoulders...
Rollins hits Ambrose with his signature powerbomb onto the corner!!
Usually, this is immediately followed by the Curbstomp, the Blackout or whatever is it called - and Ambrose is in perfect position for that - but Rollins again is distracted, this time by his own blood, that is covering his eyes apparently....
Ambrose recovers shortly in this time... Rollins goes for the Curbstomp, BUT AMBROSE DODGES IT AND THROWS HIM AWAY!
Ambrose still in a bent over position, allowing Rollins to quickly react and kick him in the head!
That kick may have been the perfect opening for Ambrose, though! He goes through the ropes... AND RETURNS WITH A BRUTAL JAWBREAKER!! Maybe the best one Ambrose ever hit! Rollins was turned inside out!!!
AMBROSE SCREAMS TO THE AUDIENCE ON HIS KNEES!! HE SIGNALS FOR THE END!!!
Despite the struggle with his bad arm, Ambrose gets Rollins in position... DIRTY DEEDS!! HE HITS IT!!!
He just hit Rollins with Dirty Deeds!! But Ambrose... doesn't go for a cover just yet!!!
"THIS ISN'T NEARLY ENOUGH, SETH!!"
Ambrose shouts that in Rollins' face...
... AND HITS ROLLINS AGAIN WITH DIRTY DEEDS!!!
Seth Rollins is a finished man! His head is covered in blood, he took almost everything a man could take, and now just suffered not one, but TWO Dirty Deeds!
WAIT - Ambrose AGAIN gets Rollins up!!
Ambrose... SPITS IN ROLLINS' FACE! ADDING INSULT TO INJURY....
.... AND A THIRD DIRTY DEEDS IN A ROW!!!
Ambrose goes for... NO!!! NO HE DOESN'T! He still wants more!!! And the crowd too!
A FOURTH!!!! A FOURTH DIRTY DEEDS!!!!!
Rollins can't possibly come back from that, my God! He may have a concussion!!
Ambrose hit Rollins with four Dirty Deeds in a row, living to the promise that he wants to put Rollins' teeth down his throat! And then, with his bad shoulder in hand, he FINALLY, FINALLY goes for a cover....
DING! DING! DING!
Justin Roberts: "Here's your winner, DEAN AMBROSE!!!!"
*Right afterwards, because I'm too lazy to do play by play for that, Cesaro and the rest of the heels whom Ambrose attacked get him back, but the faces fight them off. Ambrose, selling his bad arm, indicates some of the faces to go over to the Spanish announce table. They do, and then Ambrose tells them to hit a Triple Powerbomb on Rollins, Shield style, to remind him of what exactly did he betray. They almost do, but the Authority comes down and stops them from it, taking Rollins back with them. Ambrose looks on, satisfied but visibly angry too.*

Re: Be the Booker Showcase Thread
A little preview of my Raw for 8/18
WWE RAW 8/18/14
Thomas & Mack Center- Las Vegas, NV
(A video package of the results of SummerSlam air, highlighting Seth Rollins's victory over Dean Ambrose, Nikki Bella turning on her sister Brie to help Stephanie McMahon beat her, and Brock Lesnar defeating the WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena to win the title.)
(-Raw opens to pan around the cheering crowd of 19,000.)
Michael Cole: Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to Monday Night Raw! We are only 24 hours removed from the biggest party of the summer: SummerSlam!
Jerry Lawler: And what a party it was...for some, anyway. I can't say that everyone was in a celebratory mood after last night!
JBL: Well, I know one man who was definitely feeling great, and that would be the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar! What an achievement for that man and his advocate, Paul Heyman!
Lawler: I'm not really sure Lesnar is the partying type...
Cole: We are live from the sold-out Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada! I'm Michael Cole, alongside JBL and Jerry "the King" Lawler.
Lawler: I'm excited for tonight's Raw! This is one of my favorite venues; the WWE Universe makes matches seem way better than they actually are!
("Bow Down to the King" hits on the PA. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon make their way to the ring to loud boos from the crowd.)
Cole: We are going to start off RAW with the Authority! Last night, who they refer to as "Plan C", Brock Lesnar, finally succeeded in taking the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from John Cena.
JBL: An absolutely brilliant move from Triple H! Cena was dominated in that match from start to finish!
Lawler: Yeah, but now the question is, how well can Triple H and Paul Heyman get along?
JBL: They got along just fine in the past month, didn't they?
(Triple H takes the microphone. The crowd is still booing heavily.)
Triple H: You know, last night's SummerSlam was absolutely epic, and if you missed it, that's no matter because you can catch the replay on the WWE Network for only...
Triple H: Even though I may not be in agreement with the WWE Universe most of the time, there's no denying that all of you know how to bag a bargain.
Triple H: And speaking of SummerSlam, last night we saw a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, as Brock Lesnar (mixed reaction) defeated John Cena (boos).
(A slideshow of the pictures from the Cena-Lesnar match plays)
Cole: Last night, the WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena defended his title against the man who broke the Streak: Brock Lesnar. And guys, Lesnar dominated this match on the way to becoming the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Cena couldn't get any consistent offense in.
JBL: That just goes to show you how dangerous Brock Lesnar is. First he broke the Streak and then he does this to John Cena. Anyone wanting to face him for the championship in the future will not have an easy time.
(Camera back to the ring.)
Stephanie McMahon: What a great match. And another great match happened when I defeated Brie Bella. (Boos.)
Stephanie: Brie, you tried, I have to give that to you. (boos) But in the end, I guess you're just like your husband, Daniel Bryan (small cheers and a smattering of YES! chants), a B plus player. (Loud boos.)
(A slideshow of the pictures from the McMahon-Bella match plays)
Cole: Last night, Brie Bella took on the boss, Stephanie McMahon, to avenge everything the Authority had done to her and her husband Daniel Bryan. And she nearly had the match won, too, before Nikki Bella would inexplicably betray her sister and allow Stephanie McMahon to win the match.
(Camera back to the ring. The crowd is booing heavily.)
Stephanie: Well, you've always got to have a plan B, and Nikki knew what was best for business.
(Heavy boos. A NO! chant starts up and pretty soon the whole crowd is chanting NO! at the Authority. Stephanie and Triple H observe the crowd, smirking.)
Triple H: NO, Brie Bella did not win her match. The WWE Universe is very observant tonight. (loud boos) And speaking of not winning their matches, another Superstar who did not win his match at SummerSlam was Dean Ambrose. (cheers) Oh, he put up a fight. But the real winner was the man who holds the Money in the Bank briefcase: Seth Rollins.
(Boos from the crowd. The camera finds a man who is holding up a "Seth Sold Out" sign.)
Stephanie: Oh, what's the matter? Did somebody not get what they wanted?
(Triple H mocks a crying gesture behind her before speaking. The crowd boos.)
Triple H: Like it or not, Seth Rollins is the future of this company. He may have not done the most popular thing when he left the Shield, but he did the right thing-
(Triple H is cut off by "Hounds of Justice" on the PA. The crowd cheers as Roman Reigns emerges from the crowd in the top of the arena. The camera focuses on him.)
Roman Reigns: I noticed you didn't mention one thing that happened at SummerSlam last night. So allow me to mention that for you. Last night, I speared your golden boy Randy Orton so hard he's going to be drinking his milk from his ASS for the next six months.
(Wild cheers from the crowd, interspersed with a spattering of boos. The camera focuses back on Triple H, who is looking slightly flustered, but shakes it off.)
Triple H: That's a nice achievement Roman, and congratulations, I really mean it. I mean, it's quite an accomplishment for someone who has only been in WWE for two years to defeat a seasoned veteran like Randy Orton like you did, but I have to ask you what business you have interrupting the leader of this company.
(Camera back to Reigns in the crowd.)
Roman: What business? Triple H, you of all people should know why I'm out here. You may say Randy Orton was acting of his own will by attacking me from behind a couple weeks ago, but I'm not stupid. Randy doesn't do anything without your approval, and while he may have had some bull reason about me stealing his title shot as why he picked a fight with me, it was really you who was trying to take me out.
Roman: Well, it didn't work. I chewed up Randy Orton and I spit him out. (cheers) And now that I'm through with him, I'm going to do the same thing...to YOU. (points finger at Triple H)
Jerry Lawler: (on commentary) What!?
(Loud cheers from the crowd as the camera focuses on Triple H, looking more concerned.)
Triple H: Roman, I-
Roman: Triple H, if you don't leave the ring in five seconds I'm coming down to the ring and I'm kicking your ass. (heavy cheers)
(Stephanie McMahon angrily puts herself between Triple H and the direction Reigns is standing in the crowd.)
Stephanie: Roman Reigns, you will not dare touch the leadership of this company! If you do, you-
Roman: Don't think I won't spear you too. (enormous cheers)
(HHH and Steph are rendered momentarily speechless. The camera focuses back on Roman in the crowd.)
(Triple H and Stephanie remain in the ring. The crowd is cheering, salivating at the thought of someone giving the Authority what they deserve.)
(The crowd goes nuts as Roman begins to make his way down to the ring. Triple H remains standing in the ring, his face emotionless. Suddenly, "No Chance" hits on the PA and the crowd surprise pops.)
Jerry Lawler: What?!
Michael Cole: Is that who I think it is?
JBL: It can't be, it can't be!
(Triple H and Stephanie have both turned their attention to the stage. Roman Reigns has also stopped his descent to the ring and is looking at the stage. The crowd is still cheering. A second or two later, Vince McMahon struts out on the stage to a great reaction.)
Cole: It's the boss! Mr. McMahon is here!
Lawler: And look at Triple H and Stephanie! They had no idea!
(Triple H and Stephanie look dumbfounded at the boss as Mr. McMahon struts down into the ring. Vince steps between the ropes and grabs a mic. The camera cuts back to Reigns, wearing an expression halfway between boredom and curiosity.)
Vince: It is sure great to be back on Raw, right here in LAS VEGAS! (cheers) And I would have saved my monumental return for later, but there seems to be a situation involving my little girl. (Stephanie smiles to a smattering of boos from the crowd.)
Stephanie: Daddy, I can't believe how great it is to see you back here in WWE. (boos)
Vince: Oh, believe me, I'm happy to be back. And it's great to see how the WWE has progressed since I've been gone. We have a nice new logo...(some cheers), a nice new championship belt...(some cheers)...and a nice new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. (mixed reaction) Also, it's great to see you, Hunter. It doesn't look like you've missed a step.
(Triple H smiles, the crowd boos.)
Triple H: Vince, I gotta say that it's definitely best for business that you've returned. We could use a true master of power like you here in WWE.
Vince: Well, I guess I'll cut to the chase, and this is something I should have done a long time ago.
(He looks down at the canvas, pacing a little. A small "Thank You Vince!" chant starts in one section of the audience, anticipating what is about to come.)
Vince: I would like to announce that my daughter Stephanie and her husband Triple H...
(Triple H is smirking and Stephanie is grinning from ear to ear, in anticipation of what is to come. The crowd knows what is probably coming and starts to boo and chant "NO!" The camera cuts to Roman, looking like he is ready to come down to the ring should what the crowd fears occur.)
Vince: ...will NOT be taking over the leadership of WWE in the future!
(The crowd goes nuts. Loud cheers occur and YES! chants start in about five different sections. Stephanie appears unperturbed but can be seen to nervously swallow. She steps forward.)
Stephanie: Excuse me, daddy? Could you repeat what you said? I don't think we heard you correctly.
(A small smile breaks out on Mr. McMahon's face.)
Vince: You want me to repeat myself? Okay, I'll do it louder. I said, MY DAUGHTER STEPHANIE AND TRIPLE H WILL NOT BE TAKING OVER THE LEADERSHIP OF WWE IN THE FUTURE!
(Enormous cheers from the crowd. The smile has disappeared from Triple H's face and Stephanie looks absolutely shocked. Roman Reigns, in the crowd, has a hint of a smile on his face.)
Stephanie: B-but daddy, why?
Vince: (suddenly angry) BECAUSE I'M VINCE MCMAHON, DAMMIT! AND THIS IS STILL MY COMPANY!
(Stephanie and Triple H are too shocked to speak.)
Vince: You thought the old man was away and you could do whatever you wanted with my company? Here's a tip for you: YOU CAN'T! I may have been on vacation for a while, but I still own WWE! And I'm not gonna sit around and let you two imbeciles run the company it took me 30 years to create into the ground in 2 years! (cheers) You come out here and you talk about what's "best for business". Well, what's best for business is what the fans want! (cheers) For more than a year, you have been trying to keep Daniel Bryan, one of the most beloved Superstars, down, and just like every member of the crowd here tonight, I'm sick of this! So Triple H and Stephanie, YOU'RRRRRRRE...FIRRRRRRE-
Roman: (interjecting himself into the conversation) Just a minute, Vince. I know we all want to see Triple H get fired (cheers), but if you fire him now, I can't kick his ass. And one way or another, I'm gonna kick his ass. (loud cheers)
Vince: Well, I hate to deny a WWE Superstar what they deserve. So I'll tell you what-I'll let the WWE Universe decide. (to the crowd) DO YOU WANT TO SEE TRIPLE H VS ROMAN REIGNS TONIGHT? (loud cheers) Well, it's settled then. Tonight, we will see Triple H vs. Roman Reigns in the main event of the evening! (cheers) Oh, just one more thing. Just to make sure my son-in-law won't try any cheap stuff in his last match in WWE (cheers), I'm installing myself as special guest referee. (cheers as Vince turns toward the stands) Good luck to you, Roman.
(Mr. McMahon leaves the ring as "No Chance" plays again on the PA. The camera cuts to Roman Reigns in the crowd, who is unable to contain his smile. In contrast, Triple H in the ring looks like he's about to lose it.)
Michael Cole: Oh man! What a proclamation from the boss, Mr. McMahon! Roman Reigns will get to get his hands on Triple H tonight!
JBL: That's absolutely disgusting. Roman didn't deserve a match with Triple H!
Jerry Lawler: Oh, will you can it, John? Triple H can't protect your opinions now that he's fired!
Cole: An absolutely huge main event coming up on Raw! We'll start our matches coming up next!
TO BE CONTINUED...
