Ok, this is it, the final, the showdown, the grandaddy of them all......I'll get on with it.

Unlike previous rounds, these matches will be judged on the following things:

Length
Realism
Flow
Finish
Knowledge and Variety of Moves
Excitement

Yes, i know, only one extra category, but still. Each will be judges out of 10, then the score doubled to get an answer out of 120.

Also, the matches will be judges by three seperate judges, these being:
Wolf Beast
The Main Event
The_Showstopper

I believe that is all, here are the matches:

Red Cold's Match

“Viva La Rasa” hits and the crowd go absolutely crazy for Eddie Guerrero, who comes out without a low rider, looking incredibly focused on the task in hand. Eddie slides into the ring and begins to smile, unable to hold back his appreciation for the fans. Guerrero jumps onto one of the turnbuckles and raises his arms, receiving an almighty roar from the crowd. Eddie gets back down and beats on his chest, swaggering as his music dies down.



The crowd die down as “For Life” hits, in a complete turn around, the crowd burst into waves of boos and jeers, hissing at the cocky WWE Champion, Shawn Michaels. HBK swaggers out onto the stage at No Mercy and drops to his knees, setting off large pyrotechnics. The Heart-Break Kid flips off the crowd and cockily struts to the ring, his shiny golden belt glittering in the arena lights. Michaels climbs into the ring and bends over sideways on one knee, setting off his usual second set of pyros. Michaels soaks up the boos and s******s.



Main Event

WWE Championship: Triple Cage

“Heart-Break Kid” Shawn Michaels

V.S

“Latino Heat” Eddie Guerrero



As the three cages descend around the ring, the referee holds up the WWE Title and the crowd go crazy, the two sworn enemies Michaels and Guerrero stare into each other’s dark, passionate eyes. The referee places the belt on a crane and it is lifted to another referee on the top tier of the cage. He hooks it up and Eddie and Shawn look up. For about 20 seconds they stare to the top of the cage. “Eddie” Chants break out and the men look down, staring into each other’s eyes. The tension is immense.



Michael Cole: Tazz, can you feel the electricity inside that cage? I simply cannot wait for these two to get it on.

Tazz: Holy Shit Cole, I’ve got goosebumps, this atmosphere inside the Continental Airline Arena is unbelievable. Eddie Guerrero is just itching to take out HBK.



**DING, DING, DING**



The ring bell finally rings and the two enemies back away from each other. HBK and Eddie loosen up and jump up and down, warming up. Eddie bounces off of the ropes and HBK stretches out his calves. They eventually walk back into the centre of the ring and Nick Patrick explains the rules.



Nick Patrick: OK Guys, I’m not gunna say keep it clean, because its inevitable that there is going to be blood. There are no pinfalls or submissions. Nobody is barred from ringside, and absolutely anything goes. Basically, nothing stupid, don’t try to end anyone’s careers. And most importantly, good luck to you. This match is for HBK’s WWE Championship, ok, begin.



Eddie faces up to the slightly taller Heart-Break Kid. They talk trash to each other and exchange harsh words. Finally they back away from each other and circle the ring. They move in and lock up, Eddie is overpowered and backed into the corner, Nick Patrick breaks them up and they go back to the centre of the ring. They lock up again, this time Guerrero shoves Shawn to the mat. The crowd pops big as Eddie scales the turnbuckle to hype them up. Eddie climbs back down and they hook up again. This time they don’t move and they back into the ropes together. Shawn breaks off and kicks Eddie in the gut. Guerrero bends over and HBK backs away. Eddie recovers, and then they lock up again. This time Eddie overpowers Shawn into the ropes, then lets go and delivers some hard right to Shawn’s skull. Guerrero slings HBK into the ropes and hits a shoulder-block takedown. HBK pops back up and Eddie puts him down with a stiff right hand.

HBK climbs back to his feet again and ducks a right hand from Guerrero. Michaels hits a right hand to the face and then a left, right, left, right, left, suddenly Guerrero fires back with 5 HUGE right hands that send HBK into the corner. Guerrero goes for a chop but HBK ducks and slings Eddie into the turnbuckle. HBK then stomps on Eddie’s knee, forcing him to the floor. HBK backs away and taunts the crowd, raising his arms. This fires Eddie up and he gets to his feet, jumping up and down. Michaels turns back to his opponent and smirks audaciously. Guerrero smiles back sarcastically. Both men tie up again in a test of strength and Guerrero knees HBK in the gut. Eddie applies a front face lock and keeps Shawn tied up. Michaels desperately struggles but Latino Heat refuses to let go. Eventually HBK begins to elbow his way out of it until Eddie rolls him up into a small package pin position, but there are no pinfalls!! Guerrero lets go and springs to his feet. Shawn sits on the mat, putting his hands through his hair, thinking of what to do next.



Michael Cole: Wow, what a very fast and very intense start to this match-up Tazz, Eddie Guerrero really pulling out all of his tricks in the early going.

Tazz: Cole, Eddie has nowhere near pulled out all of his tricks yet, infact, I don’t think Eddie will actually ever run out of tricks. This guy will lie, cheat and steal his way to victory if you let him.



HBK again makes it to his feet and Eddie hits a beautiful dropkick. HBK falls back into the ropes and Eddie comes charging at him. HBK ducks, pulls the ropes down and Guerrero goes flying to the space between the ring and cage wall. Shawn straight away rolls out of the ring and lifts Eddie to his feet. Shawn attempts to sling Guerrero into the ring-post but Eddie reverses. Shawn grinds to a halt before he hits the post, then turns to face Guerrero.

Shawn dodges a right hand then delivers one back to Eddie. They brawl again before Shawn hits a quick-fire kick to the gut. Shawn then manages to sling Eddie into the steel mesh of the cage. Eddie flops back down onto the floor, then HBK runs at him. Eddie rolls out of the way and under the ring. Shawn looks under after him but cannot see him. He gets up and looks over his shoulder to flip off the fans. Suddenly Guerrero pops out of the other side of the ring and bounds over the ropes. HBK then turns around as Eddie leaps over at him in a crossbody. Eddie lands full force on HBK and the fans begin a strong “Eddie” Chant.

Guerrero lifts Michaels up and slaps him across the face, angering the WWE Champion. HBK pushes Latino Heat away and then runs at him with a big clothesline. Eddie is knocked clean off of his feet and Michaels mounts him, delivering rights and lefts to the skull. Guerrero rolls over, throwing Shawn off of him. Eddie lifts himself up via the ring apron as Shawn rises by his own power. Michaels runs towards Eddie, but his nemesis scouts it, and executes a drop-toe-hold to send HBK’s face straight into the unforgiving steel of the ringsteps. The crowd pop as Eddie gets back to his feet. Guerrero lifts HBK up and Irish whips him into the ring apron, attacking Shawn’s surgically repaired back. Eddie then Irish whips HBK into the steel mesh of the first cage. HBK holds his back in pain and the challenger clotheslines the WWE Champion down.

Eddie lifts HBK into the ring and fetches a ladder. Guerrero places the ladder, flat, on the second turnbuckle, in the opposite corner to where Shawn is recovering. Eddie then walks over to Shawn and deals some right hands. HBK fights back with some rights of his own. The two begin a wild brawl and Eddie eventually backs Michaels into the corner. Eddie delivers some vicious right hands before HBK ducks one and spins Guerrero into the corner. HBK hits his own right hands and then some knife-edge chops. Eddie then reverses again and attempts a clothesline but Shawn ducks and bounces back out of the corner. Eddie runs at Shawn and gets put on the mat with a shoulder-block. HBK jumps over Guerrero and into the ropes. He bounces back out and Eddie hits him with a hip toss. Michaels holds his back as he gets up and it met with a swift springboard dropkick to the gut.

Eddie lifts Shawn up again and backs him into the corner, opposite the ladder. Eddie hits a kick to the ribs before slinging Shawn from one corner to the other. Amazingly, HBK jumps on the ladder before his knees collide with it and flips backwards, landing on his feet. Eddie then charges at Shawn’s turned back. Michaels has it scouted and drop-toe-holds Eddie to the mat, just inches short of the ladder. HBK bounces off of the ropes and drops a knee into Eddie’s back, the first tactical offensive move of the battle. Shawn then lifts Eddie onto the ladder and lays him on it. HBK climbs to the top rope and looks for a splash onto the defenceless Guerrero, but Eddie is aware and rolls off before Shawn even has chance to jump. HBK climbs down from the top rope as Eddie gets back to his feet. Again they brawl but HBK easily powers Latino Heat into the corner.

HBK delivers some more knife-edge chops to Guerrero’s chest. Eddie’s blood in his upper-body, rushes to where the impact took place. HBK continues the assault before slinging Guerrero to the other turnbuckle, directly opposite. Eddie slams hard into the turnbuckle pad, rebounding out into a standing hurricarana from HBK. Shawn lifts Eddie up and drags him by his hair, over to the ladder, still in between the top and middle ropes. Shawn tries to lay Eddie down but Guerrero battles out. Eddie hits a weak DDT, before climbing to his feet.

Guerrero stays against the ring ropes, regaining his breath for a few seconds before heading back over to HBK who is getting to his feet. Guerrero drags Shawn over to a turnbuckle and delivers some right hands to keep him down. Guerrero then heads over to the ladder in between the ropes and lifts it up. Eddie then runs towards Shawn, aiming the top of the ladder towards the WWE Champion’s head. However Michaels ducks at the last possible second, forcing Guerrero to toss the ladder over the turnbuckle, to the outside.



Tazz: Oh my god Cole, if HBK hadn’t of moved, Guerrero would have taken his head off with that deadly ladder!!

Michael Cole: Eddie is really fired up here, the Champion better be careful.



Eddie drags HBK to his feet and is left open to a sharp uppercut. Guerrero staggers backwards and Shawn hits a springboard dropkick. HBK jumps to his feet and delivers an elbow to the face. Eddie holds his nose and HBK drags him out into a teardrop suplex, followed by an elbow to the back.HBK picks Eddie up and goes for a DDT but Guerrero pushes him away and hits a low drop kick to the knee of Michaels. Shawn attempts to get up but Eddie knocks him back down and pounces on him with lefts and rights.

Guerrero catapults HBK into the turnbuckle. Michaels stays in the corner and Eddie dropkicks him again to make sure he is not going to move. Eddie plays up for the crowd before taking HBK’s legs from underneath him, sending him face first into the bottom turnbuckle!!!! Eddie laughs before dragging HBK to the centre of the ring. Suddenly Shawn awakens and twists his legs, sending Eddie to the outside. Eddie lands painfully on his hip as HBK regains his breath in the ring.

Eddie manages to get to his feet, then, thinking quickly, he scales the turnbuckle from the outside and awaits HBK to turn around. When the Heart-Break Kid does turn to face Eddie, Guerrero leaps off with a clothesline. Eddie rolls straight back up and again stomps on HBK.

Guerrero lifts Shawn up again and tosses him out of the ring, onto the unforgiving arena floor. HBK lands hard on his back and rolls over onto his front, clutching his spine. Guerrero puts a thumbs up to the crowd and exits through the ring ropes. Eddie stamps on Shawn’s back once more before lifting him up. HBK suddenly fights back and delivers a vicious right hand that sends Eddie reeling back. Michaels opens up and unleashes several strong right hands to Eddie’s skull before Irish whipping him face first into the cage wall. Shawn grabs Eddie’s hair and jerks him upright, Eddie turns back to Shawn ands receives a ball of saliva for his troubles. HBK screws up his face and kicks Eddie in the left knee, forcing him to the floor.

Michaels drags Eddie by the left leg towards the ring post. Shawn then takes Eddie’s left leg and swings it straight into the ring post, causing the challenger to scream out in overwhelming pain. Michaels smiles evilly and repeats the painful attack once more. Eddie rolls around in pain as a “HBK Sucks” chant breaks out in the crowd. Michaels flips the crowd off and lifts Eddie into the ring. Shawn gets Guerrero to his feet and hits an uppercut before slapping on a front face lock. HBK lifts Latino Heat up for a delayed vertical suplex and holds him there for a good 10 seconds before bringing him back down to earth. Shawn doesn’t get to his feet, but instead rolls out of the ring to retrieve the ladder. HBK grabs a hold of the steel weapon and slides it into the ring.

This short break has allowed Eddie to regain his breath and prepare for HBK’s return. Shawn heads straight back over to Eddie and slaps him around the head, angering his opponent further. Guerrero suddenly rises to his feet and delivers 5 right hands to HBK, but Michaels fights back and kicks Eddie in the left knee, causing him to drop to the mat once more. Shawn drags Eddie to the centre of the ring, next to where the ladder lies. HBK opens the ladder up and places Guerrero’s left leg in between each ladder leg. Shawn then throws down the ladder leg he is holding, squashing Eddie’s leg in between the two pieces of steel.

The challenger rolls around on the floor in complete agony, grasping his injured left leg. HBK wastes no time and lifts the ladder up again, placing it in between the top and middle tope at a turnbuckle, much like it was before. When Michaels turns back to meet Eddie, Guerrero is up on his feet and ready to fight. Eddie still looks groggy but suddenly charges at Michaels, like a bolt from the blue. However Michaels greets him with Sweet Chin Music attempt, but Eddie catches Shawn’s foot and pulls him in towards him. Guerrero then nails an arm drag, but HBK springs straight back up, into another arm drag, up again, another arm drag, up again, another arm drag. When Michaels gets up this time, he backs into the ropes and climbs out of the ring, re-cooperating. Guerrero seizes this advantage straight away.

Eddie snatches the ladder from the ropes and sets it up, near the hole in the first tier’s roof. Eddie begins to climb, very slowly, taking time with his injured leg when HBK slides back into the ring and tugs him back down. Eddie brawls with him again before slamming his head into the ladder. Guerrero begins to regain control of the match-up, mounting an attack on Michaels’ back. Latino Heat slings HBK into the ropes, and on his return, nails a back body drop, causing HBK to land painfully on his lower back area. Guerrero walks over to HBK and drops a knee into Shawn’s back, causing further pain to the champions surgically repaired back. Eddie chuckles before picking Shawn up again and slinging him into the corner of the ring, away from the ladder. Eddie then delivers some more right hands to HBK, before turning him around, so his back is facing into the ring. Eddie then dashes to the ladder and takes it down. The challenger then picks up the ladder and charges with it, top first into HBK’s back. He connects and Shawn falls to the floor, squealing in pain. Guerrero then sets the ladder back up, in the corner, under the trap door to the second cage.

Eddie then hoists Michaels up and hits a fisherman suplex then applies the El Paso Stretch. HBK screams in pain and it is not long before Eddie releases the hold and rolls back out of the ring. Eddie fetches a table from under the ring, and then slides back into the squared circle, with it. Eddie sets the table up on the opposite side of the ring to the ladder. Guerrero drags Shawn to the wood and lays him on it. Very quickly, Eddie fetches a chair and places it on the lifeless HBK. Guerrero then climbs up the ladder and screams “Oloday Vato, Holmes” The crowd go ballistic for Eddie as he prepares for the frog splash.



Michael Cole: Eddie isn’t gunna do what I think he is, is he?

Tazz: As much as I hope he doesn’t, I think Guerrero may be thinking about a corner-to-corner frog splash Cole.



Suddenly Eddie leaps from the top of the ladder, where he was touching the roof, to the other side of the ring, squashing his opponent. BUT HBK MOVES!!!!!!!! Guerrero goes crashing through the table and chair as the crowd gasp in horror. After 2 minutes, HBK begins to stir and slowly but surely makes it to his feet. Shawn takes few deep breathes, and while holding his back, moves towards the mangled body of his arch nemesis. HBK slowly bends down over Guerrero, and lifts Eddie from the rubble of the table. Shawn drags Eddie to the outside and Guerrero flops down onto the floor. HBK hoists Eddie back to a vertical base and props him up against the steel mesh of the Treble Cage. HBK drops to his knees and rummages under the ring for yet another weapon. Eddie is bleeding profusely from his forehead and is holding his ribs very attentively. Shawn eventually pulls out a baseball bat from under the ring, followed by a fire extinguisher.

Guerrero is still propped up and does not notice Michaels take the baseball bat into his hands and place the fire extinguisher into the ring. Eddie staggers forwards and the crowd gasp as Michaels swings the bat straight into the mid-section and ribs of Eddie. Guerrero flops over onto his knees and hits the padded floor once more. HBK looks to the crowd and smirks his usual cocky smile. Shawn slams the bat over Eddie’s back once more and Guerrero staggers to his feet walking away from HBK, around the ring. Shawn follows Eddie and stalks him with the bat, ready to swing. Michaels spins Guerrero around after he has caught up with him and swings, but Latino Heat ducks. Eddie then lays some right hands into Shawn and he drops the bat. Unfortunately for Guerrero, Michaels fights back and over powers the groggy opponent. Shawn knees Eddie in the rib section once more before throwing him back into the ring. HBK slides in slowly and cautiously gets back to his feet, clutching his back as he does so. Eddie lies on the mat, holding his ribs with one hand, and his left leg with the other. Shawn shuffles across to Guerrero and grabs his hair, before dragging him to a level surface. Shawn locks in a front face lock before hoisting Eddie up for a teardrop suplex. Shawn lands the suplex before walking back around to Eddie’s legs. Shawn lifts up Guerrero’s left leg and locks in a half boston crab on it, a crafty plan to prevent Eddie from being able to climb the ladder. Shawn keeps the hold locked on for a good 2 minutes, with Eddie screaming and squealing in immense pain, tapping out mercilessly. After 3 minutes of the hold, Eddie begins to fade and pass out from the pain. Referee Nick Patrick checks on Guerrero and tells HBK to let go, but he refuses to. Patrick then has no choice and holds up the dreaded “X” sign. Paramedics then begin to come out of the back and prepare to enter through the door. But out of nowhere, Latino Heat comes to life and gets to his elbows, screaming in pain, but desperately trying to shake HBK off of his left leg. Eventually, the challenger uses what little leg strength he has left to flip his leg out of the manoeuvre, and Michaels is sent crashing through the ring ropes, face first into the steel mesh!! Guerrero doesn’t have time to dawdle and regain energy, but instead rolls out of the ring, behind HBK.

Guerrero yelps in pain as he applies pressure to his left leg, trying to lean over and lift HBK to his feet via his hair. HBK is now busted open slightly, from the impact with the wire cage wall. Guerrero smiles before smashing Michaels’ face back into the steel, rubbing his forehead against eh cage. Shawn desperately tries to get his hands in the way, but Eddie is relentless. Latino Heat ceases, Eddie then Irish whips Shawn into the cage wall and he rebounds back into the ring post!!! The crowd let out a burst of laughter as Shawn flops onto the floor. Guerrero then points the baseball bat that is lying on the floor and the crowd pop.

While holding his injured ribs, Eddie bends down and lifts the wooden bat off of the floor. Guerrero pumps the crowd up before striking HBK across the back with the wood. Shawn flops onto the floor holding his lower back.



Michael Cole: Is Eddie getting the advantage back in this match Tazz?

Tazz: By the looks of things, HBK could be in a sticky situation here. Guerrero has the weapon, the crowd AND the upper hand. If Eddie can use all of those to his advantage, he has got this in the bag already!



Eddie allows Shawn to get up this time, before swinging for his head, but Shawn ducks and Eddie smashes the wood to splinters, hitting the ring post. Eddie turns back to face Shawn and plants some right hands on him, again backing him into the cage wall. Guerrero then slings Michaels into the ring apron and he rebounds back into a reverse DDT. Eddie then stares at the ladder in the ring and slowly rises to his feet. Guerrero points up there and the crowd go wild. Eddie climbs into the ring, hastily, holding his ribs and limping on his left leg. Guerrero then hobbles over to the steel ladder and begins to climb up the ladder. He opens the trap door to the next level, but then stares down at the lifeless HBK. Guerrero looks around to the crowd and they give a mixed reaction. Eddie decides on his own and steps down two steps, ready to leap. HBK slowly gets to his feet after a good 30 seconds and turns around to be planted with a giant crossbody from 20 feet in the air!!!! The crowd let off yet another “Holy Shit” chant and the two competitors lie motionless.

After several minutes, Guerrero begins to stir and very slowly, drags himself up via the cage wall. Eddie stares down at Shawn before looking up towards the championship belt. The crowd start another “Eddie” chant before Guerrero rolls into the ring. He drags himself up again, this time via the ropes. Eddie backs into the corner of the ring and regains his breath for a moment. Meanwhile, HBK begins to stir and sits upright. Shawn slowly gets to his knees and crawls towards the ring, and the waiting fire extinguisher.



Eddie sees Shawn and walks over towards him, but HBK sprays the fire extinguisher’s gas into his eyes!!! Guerrero drops to the mat, rolling around, clutching his face and eyes. HBK falls back to the floor on the outside before propping himself up against the ring apron. Shawn eventually gets to his feet and rolls into the ring, picking up a steel chair in the process. Eddie finally makes it to his feet as well, rubbing his eyes in desperation. Guerrero then turns to face Michaels and can’t see what is going on, therefore, he walks straight into a chair shot to the skull!!

HBK throws the chair away as Guerrero flops to the mat, bleeding from the forehead, and nose. Shawn looks towards the ladder and staggers over. HBK grabs a hold of a step and begins to climb. Step by step he makes it to the second cage, closing the door in the process. Shawn then staggers to the cage wall and pulls off a chain. He walks back over to the trap door and loops the chain around it, and the roof of the first floor, locking it, preventing Eddie from entering!!!! Shawn then takes the key off of the cage wall and walks towards the cage door. He unlocks it, checks Eddie is still down and exits the second cage.



Michael Cole: What a cheap cheating tactic from our WWE Champion. Locking the trap door to prevent Eddie from getting up to the second cage!

Tazz: You may call it cheating Cole, I call it smart. HBK is using the environment around him to his advantage.



HBK steps a few paces away from the second cage before turning and staring up at his WWE Championship, dangling above the third cage. Shawn turns to address the crowd with a cocky, cheeky smirk on his face. The crowd boo immensely. Meanwhile, in the ring, Eddie is beginning to stir and sits up holding his head. Guerrero wipes his eyes, trying to rid them of the fire extinguisher’s gas. Guerrero clutches his ribs once more, before taking several deep breathes.

Eddie manages to look around and sees Shawn is nowhere to be seen. A look of sheer horror spreads across his face as he looks up and sees HBK staring down at him from the second tier. Eddie scampers to his feet and slowly scales the ladder, climbing straight up to open the trap door. He pushes it, but it doesn’t budge. He notices the chain and lock around it. Latino Heat goes crazy and very hastily climbs down the ladder as Michaels laughs down at him. Eddie then takes down the ladder and folds it together. He then lifts the top up towards the trap door. Eddie then thrusts it upwards, trying to break the steel mesh in the trap door.



Michael Cole: Eddie is bashing the cage with the ladder, desperately trying to get through. How innovative from the former WWE Champion!

Tazz: Well, I don’t know what to say Cole! HBK used the things around him and I guess now Eddie is too!



Shawn looks horrified and springs back into the second cage. Eddie continues to bash the trap door and seems to be breaking through. In an act of desperation, HBK stands on the trap door to prevent Eddie breaking through. However when Guerrero smacks the door once more, HBK is sent flying and the mesh parts with the rest of the cage. HBK falls backwards but soon rises to his feet.
The former Champion sets up the ladder and slowly clambers up it, just as HBK darts out of the door. Eddie slowly rises to the second cage and jogs out of the cage door around 3 seconds after Shawn. HBK then desperately scrambles up the second cage as Eddie hurries to catch him. Shawn is getting to his feet on the second cage when Eddie grabs his ankle, preventing HBK from progressing any further. Shawn wriggles profusely, trying to get his foot free, however Eddie refuses to release him.

Then, suddenly, almost out of nowhere, Eddie tugs back on Shawn’s foot tripping the WWE Champion up, and into the cage, rebounding upwards and falling back over the edge of the cage, sending Shawn crashing to the cage below!!!!!!! Eddie lies motionless on top of the second cage while HBK is folded up like an accordion on the top of the first cage.



Michael Cole: These fans have just gone completely crazy!!! That was absolutely INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!

Tazz: I have never seen anything like that in my entire life Cole.



Yet another HUGE “Holy Shit” chant echoes throughout the arena. Shawn is motionless as Eddie lies motionless as well, blood pouring out of the open wound on his head. Latino Heat desperately tries to get to his feet, exhausted and broken. Guerrero somehow musters the strength to climb to his feet and stares up at the prise that is rightfully his. Eddie grabs a hold of the final cage and begins to climb up. Step by step, second by second he is getting closer to recapturing the WWE Championship. But then Eddie turns and sees Shawn beginning to move on the first cage top. Eddie stares up at the gold, then back down at Michaels. Guerrero grabs his hair before shaking around and looking up to the title again. He screams before cautiously jumping back down to the roof of the second cage, landing awkwardly on his left leg. Eddie grasps his left knee before staggering over towards the edge of the second cage. He then looks to his adoring fans, who return his glance with an awesome roar. Eddie takes a deep breath before screaming: “VIVA LA RASA HOMMES, LATINO HEEEEEEAT!!!!” Eddie looks over the edge of the cage before staring down at Michaels who has folded out onto the cage floor. Eddie then signals to the crowd and leaps from the edge with an almighty Frog Splash!!!!!



Michael Cole: Holy Shit Tazz, Eddie could have just won the match, but instead, he is risking his career, the match and possibly his life, purely to punish HBK. This is the second time in the match he could have had the match won, it cost him last time, lets hope it wont this time.

Tazz: I couldn’t agree more with what you just said Cole. Eddie is out of his Latino mind. Why doesn’t he just finish the match and get this brutal encounter over with?



Eddie rolls around the cage roof, writhing in pain, clutching his ribs. The crowd are still going completely crazy for the insane bump. Eddie sits up, breathing heavily and looks to his left, to see the motionless body of HBK. Michaels’ eyes are closed, and his body limp. Eddie smirks, audaciously as he begins to get to his knees. Guerrero crawls towards the cage wall and grips a hold, pulling himself up to his feet. HBK suddenly opens his eyes and moves his head, to look at Eddie, who is beginning to climb up the cage once more. HBK takes several deep breaths before sitting upright, however the pain over-powers him and he lies straight back down. Eddie doesn’t notice and continues to climb, very slowly, one legged and injured ribs aching, trying to reclaim his WWE Title. HBK takes another 10 seconds before attempting to sit up again, this time; he stays up and begins to flip over to his knees. Michaels holds his lower back before attempting to claw his way to his feet, via cage two’s wall. Meanwhile, Eddie is up onto cage number two’s roof and is progressing towards the wall of cage three, however he takes a good 20 seconds in between that allows HBK to climb to the top of cage two.

Latino Heat suddenly takes a glimpse behind him and sees HBK getting to his feet, still holding his back with one hand. Guerrero spins around and walks towards HBK, ready for another fight. Shawn greets him with a right hand, which Eddie returns. HBK throws another, but Guerrero ducks. Latino Heat then lunges at Shawn with a giant clothesline, but Michaels ducks and spins Guerrero onto the very edge of the second cage. Eddie is waving his arms around, desperately trying to stay on the second cage, Michaels takes these precious seconds and jogs towards the third cage and begins to climb. Eddie however, regains his balance and limps over to HBK, tugging him back down. HBK turns back to Eddie and delivers right hand, causing Eddie to stagger backwards. Suddenly Guerrero dives at Michaels like a bolt from the blue, but Shawn ducks and Eddie crashes into the cage wall.



Michael Cole: Both of these men are exhausted, battered and bruised, yet they still continue to fight for what they believe in, what they love and what they crave. The WWE Championship

Tazz: That’s how much this belt means to them Cole, they cannot live without it. Well, in metaphorical terms anyway. I would hate to be the man who loses out in this contest.



HBK bends over, holding his lower back once more, trying to regain his breath. Guerrero lies almost motionless, limp, and only just breathing. His face is now a complete crimson mask, blood pouring out of a fresh wound. HBK slowly gets back upright and sees Eddie begin to roll over, ready to get up. Shawn urges Guerrero up, while stomping his right foot on the ground, tuning up the band for some Sweet Chin Music. The crowd boo HBK and then begin yet another “Eddie” chant, waking the wounded challenger up some more. Eddie crawls up the third cage’s wall to try and get to his feet, while Michaels’ foot continues to pound on top of the cage roof. Guerrero eventually gets to his feet and turns around to be greeted by some Sweet Chin Music, courtesy of the WWE Champion. BUT EDDIE DUCKS!!!!! Shawn spins back around into a giant right hand that sends Shawn reeling, Eddie then attempts a standing dropkick, and he lands it, knocking Shawn back into the girder that holds the third cage upright.

Shawn backs away from the girder in unbearable pain, clutching his back once more. Eddie slowly clambers to his feet once more, he then turns towards the third cage and begins to climb up, very slowly. Injured ribs and knees and all, Guerrero begins to scale the third cage wall, just before Michaels turns back towards him. Michaels staggers towards Eddie, just as Latino Heat reaches the top of the third cage, the title within his grasp. Michaels quickly begins to climb up to meet Guerrero, who is up to one knee, his fingertips touching the gold. HBK slides onto the roof of the cage and crawls on his knees towards Eddie. Michaels whips Guerrero around and the two sworn enemies slug it out once more.



Michael Cole: Tazz, this one has come down to the wire, in more than one sense of the meaning, both men are within a finger of winning this contest, but the other stands in his way.

Tazz: Cole, this battle has been one for the ages, the record books, and to be held with the gods. Whoever wins, I take my hat off to them, even if it is Shawn Michaels of the nWo.



Eddie slings a right hand, HBK returns with a right. A Left hook from Latino Heat, and right jab from Shawn. Both men then wind back and fire with two huge right hands, each knocking the other backwards, onto the opposite edges of the top cage. Both men struggle for balance, even on their knees, suddenly HBK lunges forward and just clips the WWE Title with his fingertips. Eddie responds by dropping an elbow into HBK’s lower back, making him howl in pain. Eddie then musters the strength to get to his feet, groggy and nearly blind from all the blood in his eyes. The challenger looks towards his prize, the title that was stole from him at SummerSlam, that he won at No Way Out against Brock Lesnar, earlier in the year, and smiles. The crowd are going berserk as Eddie grabs the belt and is just about to tug it down when HBK hits a LOW BLOW out of nowhere!!! Eddie flops to the cage floor, holding his manhood, without the title. Shawn has an evil smirk on his face as he gets to one knee, blood dripping from his crimson hair. He pushes himself up and flips the crowd the bird before stretching his arm out to the WWE Title and grasping it with a firm grip. Shawn looks to the crowd once more, just as Latino Heat gets back to his knees and screams at HBK. “Is that all you’ve got Shawn? Com’on essae, Eddie can take some more!”

HBK seemingly falls for Eddie’s sneaky trick to buy some more time. Shawn lifts Guerrero back to his feet via his hair and delivers some more brutal right hands, further opening up the huge gash in Eddie’s forehead. Blood covers Shawn’s fist and splatters onto his chest, pounding away on Eddie’s helpless forehead. In a complete U-Turn, Eddie fights back, throwing everything he has left at HBK, pounding and punching every inch of Michaels’ body with every single ounce of energy he has left. Michaels falls to his knees and Eddie leaves him, then turns back to the crowd, hyping them up as he prepares to be come WWE Champion once again.



Michael Cole: This is it Tazz!!!! I cannot believe Eddie Guerrero has finally done it. All he has to do now is turn around and yank down the WWE Title, and his dream has been accomplished. Com’on Eddie, you can do it.

Tazz: Cole, I’m speechless, these guys are bleeding buckets, but they still have enough energy to do this, how? It’s completely ludicrous!! Just get this brutal encounter over and done with, for god’s sake!!



Eddie acknowledges the crowd one more time before turning back around to look at the WWE Title. But instead he is met by HBK’s boot, as he connects with the SWEET CHIN MUSIC!!!! Guerrero falls backwards, off of the top cage and onto the second cage, motionless and out cold. Shawn falls to his knees and looks to the skies, seemingly thanking god. Shawn then gets to his feet, just as his fellow New World Order Members walk down the rampway, looking their usual cocky selves. HBK signals thumbs up before tugging down his championship belt, the WWE Title. Shawn bursts into tears and drops to his knees as the crowd boo and jeer, giving Shawn and the nWo huge amount of heat. The bell finally rings and HBK lies, face down, crying into his championship belt.

Winner: And STILL WWE Champion, “Heart-Break Kid” Shawn Michaels
Michael Cole: Damn that Shawn Michaels, low blowing Guerrero at the last hurdle. Eddie gave absolutely everything he had for this belt, and the Heart-Break Kid has taken it away from him!! The damn nWo are going to be partying hard tonight Tazz.
Tazz: Cole, all i have to say is simply........WOW! What a match, Shawn Michaels sure as hell has earned my respect, and if he hasn't earned yours, there is something wrong with you.
Michael Cole: Ladies and Gentlemen, that is all we have time for, we'll see you on thursday for WWE SmackDown!
The WWE Logo flashes across the screen as Kevin Nash and Scott Hall lift a bloody and battered Michaels onto their shoulders.

Red Cold:

Length: 10/10. This match was arguably too long. A difficult task, with such a hard match to write, but somehow you managed to pull off something special, in terms of length.

Flow: 7/10. The first thing to bring you down in terms of flow was the consistent motionless minutes. For me, it reminds me of the Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H Hell in a Cell Match from last years Bad Blood, where towards the end, both men took a long time to get to their feet, and although it sold the injuries from the match, but for me, the long rest periods killed that already below par match. Therefore, it slowed the match down here way too many times for me to enjoy it 100%, especially in the early going.

Realism: 9/10. I wrote about realism after writing about Flow, because to follow on from what I wrote there, with the long rest periods. Yes, it does make the match seem more like a struggle, with both men pushing themselves to the limit for victory, and it does show the effects of such a brutal match, but it appeared to me that the longer intervals of recovery came mid way through the match, with less time periods towards the end of rest.

Finish: 10/10. Awesome finish, and I was really pulling for Eddie to grasp the title back once again, but Shawn Michaels some how, some way managed to cheat his way to victory. The victory came without the expected, and boring n.W.o run in, which made me enjoy it more, and Michaels tearful celebration was excellent too.

Knowledge and Variety of Moves: 10/10. This match had it all from where I see it. Technical wrestling, which both men can do, just as well as anyone else. High Flying madness, which, once again, both men excel at. Brawling, which both have been known to do, and a match like this of course needed it. Crazy, crazy shit, which, Guerrero and Michaels have always been able to do. Every move in both mens repitoire was included here, and then some.

Excitement: 9/10. The beginning was rather cagey, which I am a fan of, the early stages set the foundations for everything else left to come, the mid section let you down, and slowed down way too much, and if there was to be a stage in the match where this would be acceptable, it would be the final stages, which picked up really well, and then, you had an awesome finish, much cleaner than I expected.


Jushin Liger:

Length: 10/10. For two out of three falls, it is arguable that the match could;ve been longer, but personally, I would say it was just right.

Flow: 7/10. A two minute long arm bar at the beginning of the match would kill it for me. Way too long for a less than average submission, especially so early in the match, and just like Calum’s match, there were a lot of periods of rest, where both men stayed down for two minutes. Personally, I hate that, unless it’s a 60 Minute Iron Man. These things took away the flow of the match for me.

Realism: 8/10. Read above for why one mark is taken off. Exact same reason as Calums match. The second mark off is due to the non-existent use of the Ankle Lock towards the end - Kurt Angle’s number one move. That just didn’t seem right to me.

Finish: 9/10. Oh boy, this may be heading to a tie here. Like Red Cold’s match, I loved this finish, with Guerrero digging deep, and nailing the Frog Splash for victory. Not quite dramatic enough to warrant full marks though I’m afraid.

Knowledge and Variety of Moves: 10/10. Had it all. Its quite obvious you know your wrestling, and I would argue that quite possibly you have more knowledge on the business than anyone in BTB, bringing in every move possible.

Excitement: 9/10. I personally love 2/3 Falls Matches. But, like Red Cold, the long rest periods, and the two minute arm bar drags the score down a notch for me. A lot of near falls, but the finish didn’t quite grab me as much as Calums, but to make up for that, there was always a possibility of a pinfall at any time during the match, which was done very well.

Final Scores:

Red Cold: 110/120

Jushin Liger: 106/120

Four point difference here gives Calum one out of three judges votes. I wouldnt count Liger out yet though, because it is too tight to call, with extremely good matches on offer.

Length: 10/10 – For a Triple Cage with no pinfall’s I feel this is an excellent length

Realism: 8/10 This realism in this match was quite good in my opinion, the selling of high impact moves were vary evident and you also showed the structure basically taking a toll on their body. There were parts were this was overdone but nothing too major, good job.

Flow: 8/10 – Although I said the selling was good but there was also quite a lot of it and I think this would annoy the crowd. However the flow was generally good but one or two minors bring this rating down

Finish: 10/10, Eddie Guerrero almost about to win but Shawn Michaels somehow hit the Sweet Chin Music and got the title. Well Done on that it was excellent and probably would’ve happened.

Knowledge and Variety of Moves: 10/10, All the trademark moves done by both men, it had everything and then some.

Excitement: 9/10 this match had its spots but there were parts that let it down.


Jushin Liger

Length: 8/10, for a two out of three falls match it is not long enough in my opinion, I think both men could and should go longer.

Realism: 9/10, just some over selling pulled the mark away.

Flow: 8/10, the start seemed slow and I think you over selled at a number of points throughout the match as I said above.

Finish: 9/10, a close match and I would’ve liked it to end with a rollup of some form here, none the less the Frog Splash is good enough for a finish to this match.

Knowledge & Variety Of Moves: 10/10, an excellent knowledge of moves and holds, you obviously favour the technical type of style as it is done so well in the match.

Excitement: 10/10 this match was quite exciting, it was a superbly well-written match.

Totals
Red Cold – 110/120
Jushin Liger – 108/120


Overall Comment: By the looks of things now Red Cold has a six point lead over Jushin Liger, this would mean in Showstoppers grading that Jushin Liger has to win by seven points to win. Both of you have made a name for yourself in this tournament and regardless however the result turns out, there is no real loser.

Red Cold

Length - 10/10. Triple Cage match requires a decent length, and I think you delivered.

Realism - 7/10. The only Triple Cage match in real life was in wCw. This was a pretty slow affair, and I think it was the same here. A bit too slow for my liking.

Flow - 8/10. The match flowed well. You delivered it brilliantly and the commentary inbetween gave gaps in the match where rests were needed.

Finish - 9/10. The finish was brilliant. A typical HBK finish. The celebration echoed that of Survivor Series 2002 :)

Knowledge of Variety and Moves - 10/10. Everything was there. No reservations

Excitement - 8/10. I had high hopes reading the title of the match, but the match was too much of a Street Fight/Cage Match. The ending however was brilliant and you could say that I was excited at the end!

Overall - 52/60 = 104/120

Jushin Liger

Length - 9/10. If I were judging it with the length of Red Cold's match, it would be an 8 however I feel that it is a reasonable length on it's own and suitable PPV length.

Realism - 8/10. Too many rest holds. Too much time taken off attacks. Look at finish...

Flow - 7/10. Again, same as the realism. I was reading it, and at times I felt just that little bit bored.

Finish - 8/10. The finish was not as dramatic as that of Red Cold's. I also think that a Frog Splash after a brutal match is not that realistic....

Knowledge of Variety and Moves - 10/10. Awesome, descibed in great detail.

Excitement - 9/10. The match overall was exciting however the anti-climactic finish didn't cut it with me.

Overall - 51/60 = 102/120

Congratulations to the winner, Red Cold. Was a pleasure to judge the final....

Congrats Red Cold. It's quite obvious in this tourney, you were the best match writer.

Jushin Liger is a tremendous runner up though, and had a few things gone his way, we may have seen the biggest upset in BTB Tourney history.

But, this tourney was Red Cold's, and he deserves the victory. Should make for an interesting competition next time around, wit a lot of genuine contenders for the title. I know that I really want one more for a nice round five, Red Cold is obviously gonna want to retain his title, Main Event wants to reign supreme once again, Jushin Liger will be one to watch again, Highlight Reel will be looking to go a step further, HBK_nWo continues to improve, The Wall/Orton17 I'm sure will back, and who knows who else can step up, and be the next Jushin liger from this tourney.

Congrats Red Cold, better luck next time Jushin.

I've already told you on MSN, how great you did. This was your time and you truly deserved it. But next time.. hopefully I'll be making more noise then just making it to the second round. ;)
