I don't know what cabs is up to with all these other threads that he's starting but let's get on to the ratings war between me and him. I don't know when he'll have his first Raw up, if he ever will.
Here's my roster...
WWE Champion: Eddie Guerrero
United States Champion: John Cena
Tag Team Champions: Rikishi/Scotty 2 Hotty
Women's Champion: Victoria
This is after WrestleMania, with the same results.
The show kicks off with General Manager, Paul Heyman in his office, sitting on his desk and adressing the people.
Paul Heyman: “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the NEW Smackdown! Yes, it’s the new Paul Heyman’s Smackdown! After the last roster trade, it is a big change in the roster. But you know what they say…change is good. So let’s look at the champions we have on our show…first….a new addition to Smackdown…the Women’s Championship which is around the waist of Victoria! Next, we have still have our WWE Tag Team Champions, Scotty 2 Hotty and Rikishi. I regret to say that we no longer hold the WWE Cruiserweight Championship…which will be held by Chavo Guerrero Junior on the weaker show, Raw. However, I would like to introduce the World Cruiserweight Championship (Paul Heyman shows the new belt to the camera.) Now…I’m still undecided who the Cruiserweight Champion should be. Next is a title that was guaranteed to stay on Smackdown…one of the biggest rising stars in this industry…the United States Champion…John Cena! And last, but obviously not least…we have the WWE Heavyweight Champion…Eddie Guerrero! Now for all the boys in the back…if you have any problems whatsoever, you can come speak to me. But let’s address the main event for tonight…I think Eddie Guerrero needs a challenge here…so tonight will be a twelve man battle royale to determine the number one contender for the WWE Championship. The winner will face the champion two weeks from now on Smackdown! Thank you for your time and enjoy the show.”
The Smackdown intro is played followed by the pyros in the arena.
Women’s Championship Match: Victoria (champion) Vs. Nidia
Both competitors have a stare down followed by a tie up. Victoria gains the advantage and gets a headlock on Nidia. Now the Women’s Champion is whipped to the ropes by the challenger. She takes Nidia down with a shoulder block and then goes to the ropes again. This time Nidia drops to the mat and Victoria leaps over her. Now Nidia leapfrogs over Victoria and on her way back gets a monkey flip on the champion however she lands on her feet. Now they both circle the ring. Nidia goes for a single leg takedown but Victoria evades it. This time the champion goes for the takedown but Nidia has it scouted as well. They tie up in the center of the ring and Nidia backs Victoria into the corner. Nidia slaps Victoria in the face and then Victoria answers with a slap of her own. Nidia makes the first mistake in the match by charging at Victoria in the corner but she misses. After evading the charge, Victoria hits some mean knife-edge chops in the corner and then whips Nidia to the ropes. The challenger comes off the ropes and dodges a closeline by the champ and then is thrown over the top rope. Victoria taunts to the crowd. Nidia gets back in the ring after a count of seven and calms the crowd down. Both women circle the ring again and get in a tie up. Victoria gets a headlock on the challenger and hangs onto it very tightly. Nidia pulls the hair of Victoria but the ref quickly gets her to let go. Nidia shoves Victoria to the ropes and when her opponent comes back, she hits Victoria HARD in the ribs with a knee. Nidia quickly gets Victora down on the mat with a body scissors. Victoria screams in pain as she attempts to get out of the maneuver. The demented female eventually gets out of the maneuver by reversing it into a pinfall…1…2-kickout by Nidia! Both competitors get up and Victoria goes for a closeline but Nidia ducks and hits Victoria in the face with a vicious slap. Nidia locks in a gut wrench very close to the ropes. The ref checks if Victoria is ready to submit as Nidia hangs onto the ropes with her arm illegally for extra leverage. The ref checks to see if Nidia is cheating but she has already let go so she doesn’t get caught. The ref checks on Victoria and Nidia again uses the ropes for leverage. Victoria complains to the ref who goes to check if Nidia is cheating but for the second time, Nidia is too quick for the ref. The referee goes to check on Victoria as she seems to be fading away and Nidia, for the third time uses the ropes for leverage. This time the official notices and kicks Nidia’s arm off the ropes. Victoria hits a hiptoss on the challenger and then hits an armdrag takedown. Nidia is put in an armbar submission now. The challenger eventually gets to her feet and gets out of the hold. Both competitors now begin trash talking eachother, showing their new deep hatred for one another. Nidia hits a slap on the Women’s Champion and then runs to the ropes. Nidia attempts a Lou Thesz Press but Victoria catches her and gets a spinebuster on the challenger followed by a half crab. Nidia screams in pain as she approaches the ropes and is quickly pulled away by Victoria to the center of the ring. Nidia once again fights her way to the ropes but it doesn’t stop the Women’s Champion as she pulls Nidia back to the center. After a minute of being in the submission hold Nidia is able to use her other leg to kick Victoria in the face and force her to let go of the submission hold. Victoria picks up Nidia and whips her to the ropes in an attempt for a backbody drop but Nidia notices this and counters with a facebuster. Nidia now slides to the outside of the ring and grabs the Women’s Championship. She slides it across the ring and the referee goes to take it out of the ring. While the ref is occupied, Nidia pulls out some brass knucks from her trunks and nails Victoria in the head. Nidia then shows off to the crowd who begins to boo her. Nidia slowly climbs to the top turnbuckle as she has some trouble getting to the top rope. Finally when she does, it appears she goes for a moonsault but Victoria kicks the ropes to stop the maneuver from happening. Now Victoria takes Nidia off the top turnbuckle in a peculiar position and brings her into the center of the ring with the challenger on her back. She’s set herself up for the Widow’s Peak. Victoria nails her finishing maneuver and goes for the cover…1…2…3!
Winner: Still Women’s Champion Victoria

Backstage, The F.B.I., La Resistance and World’s Greatest Tag Team get into an argument of who the number one contender for the Tag Team Championships are. They start hitting eachother with fists as Paul Heyman comes racing to the rescue.
Heyman: “Cut it out! I will not stand for any of this fighting backstage! Here’s the plan…all of you will get non-title shots against Scotty 2 Hotty and Rikishi one week at a time. Whoever wins will face the tag team champions. So it could be a normal tag, a three team tag match or even a fatal four way tag team championship match! Now get along!”
Paul Heyman continues walking down the hall as the cameras follow him. He’s about to turn a corner when Kane comes from out of nowhere, grabs Heyman by his suit and slams him against the wall.
Kane: “Where is he!?”
Heyman: “Who? What are you talking about?”
Kane: “Where’s my brother…The Undertaker.”
Heyman: “He’s…he’s not here.”
Kane slams him against the wall for a second time.
Kane: “Do you think I’m stupid!? Tell me where he is Paul! Tell me where my brother is! He wasn’t supposed to show up at Wrestlemania twenty…I buried him alive! Do you hear me? The Undertaker is dead!”
Heyman: “In theory, he is dead. He’s the deadman. This is all your fault Kane. You brought the deadman out of him. It’s fault…it’s your problem…so you fix it yourself!”
Kane throws the General Manager to the ground and begins searching for the Undertaker.

Matt: “Hello to all my M’F’ers out there. You now have something to look forward to…Matt Hardy…Version 1…is back on SmackDown where he belongs! I was misused and mistreated on Raw…only fighting on second rate shows like Raw and Sunday Night Heat. And now…my first match back on SmackDown…I face John Cena for the United States Championship. Well I’m going to make a tremendous come back and shutup the Vanilla Ice wannabe!”
John Cena comes down to the ring with a mic and begins his pre-match rap.
Cena: “Yo Matt…the joke’s getting old…Version one’s not winning this gold. You’ve lost to everybody on both brands, and these M’F’ers don’t even exist listen to these fans! They’ll be chanting my name while you’re flat on your back…but since it’s your first night back I’ll cut you some slack. Instead of an embryo I'll make you look like a fetus, meanwhile I’ll be bragging about my giant…”

Cameras go to a misty cemetery where Paul Bearer is walking with the urn held up.
Paul: “Kane…Kane…you’re no son of mine! I warned you…I told you not to interfere with your brother’s plans…but you wouldn’t listen. No, you wouldn’t. Then when all the paranormal activities occurred…you denied that he was back. You doubted your brother…you doubted me. I told you to accept your fate and you would not listen…you would not believe that the dead would rise again…and look now…”
Undertaker appears from out of the shadows.
Undertaker: “Yes Kane…I am back…you attempted to finish me off…however you should know better than anyone…you can’t kill something that’s already dead…and now my brother…you will pay the consequences…Wrestlemania was just the beginning…the beginning…of the end…Kane…you will…rest…in…peace!”
