After a long debate with myself, I've decided to return with a new show as obviously there are some here who have forgotten what I did a few years ago as evident by being left out of the Hall of Fame so its time to remake the impact it seems and make you realise you made a mistake :)

I will be doing WWE, both Raw and Smackdown.

So here are my WM results

Eddie Guerrero defeats Rey Mysterio after help from Chavo Guerrero J.R

Big Show defeats Akebono in the Wrestlemania Sumo Match

Christy Hemme defeats Trish Stratus to win the Womens Championship after using the Twist of Fate

Chris Jericho defeats Chris Benoit, Christian, Edge, Kane and Shelton Benjamin in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match after reaching the top just a second before Edge.

Kurt Angle defeats Shawn Michaels after a Top Rope Angle Slam, both men shake hands at the end of the match.

Randy Orton defeats The Undertaker after a steel chair shot and a Third RKO to end the streak of The Undertaker at Wrestlemania

John Cena defeats John Bradshaw Layfield to win the WWE Championship after the FU

Batista defeats Triple H to win the World Heavyweight Championship with the Batista Bomb.


Ok and since my Raw is ready to post here it is. Be kind I gotta work off some rust people :)


A video recap of the Raw half of Wrestlemania is played with highlights from Kurt Angle defeating Shawn Michaels, Christy Hemme defeating Trish Stratus, Randy Orton defeating The Undertaker, Chris Jericho winning the Money in the Bank Ladder Match and Batista beating Triple H for the World Heavyweight Championship.

The Raw theme plays throughout the arena and the pyro goes off and the camera shows the fans all around the arena with their signs.

Jim Ross. Welcome to Monday Night Raw, we are just 24 hours removed from Wrestlemania!!!!

Jerry Lawler: What a night it was last night, I will never forget it any time soon

Jim Ross: It was a momentus night indeed and after months of waiting, Batista finally got his hands on his former mentor Triple H and captured the World Heavyweight Championship

Jerry Lawler: But if Batista thinks that this feud with Triple H is over, he has another thing coming, Triple H will not stop until he gets his hands back on that World Championship again

Jim Ross: I think you’re right about that, also last night at Wrestlemania, it was a history making night for young Randy Orton, ending the streak of The Undertaker but not without controversy

Jerry Lawler: What do you mean controversy JR, the history books will not show anything controversial, they will just show that The Undertaker went 12 matches unbeaten at Wrestlemania and was stopped at Wrestlemania 21 by The Legend Killer Randy Orton

“I’m Back” hits throughout the arena to a mixed reaction from the crowd as the General Manager, Eric Bischoff makes his way down the ramp with a smile on his face.

Jim Ross: You gotta wonder what Eric Bischoff is smiling about King

Jerry Lawler: I don’t blame him from smiling, Raw had a great night last night at Wrestlemania

Bischoff climbs into the ring and gets a microphone from Lillian Garcia. He walks into the middle of the ring and waits for his music to cut.

Eric Bischoff: Last night at Wrestlemania, it was one of the biggest nights in the history of World Wrestling Entertainment, and Raw stole the show, and right now I would like to congratulate the Raw superstars on their special efforts last night, proving again that they are the superior brand…

Bischoff nods his head

Eric Bischoff: I mean, first of all we had Christy Hemme with all the odds against her, defeat Trish Stratus to become the Women’s Champion

The fans give that a mixed reaction

Eric Bischoff: Then in a tremendous effort, Shawn Michaels matched Kurt Angle in every department, but Kurt was the better man on the night, unlucky to Shawn on that

The crowd begin to boo

Eric Bischoff: Then Chris Jericho won what must have been the greatest ladder match in the history of the industry, to win a contract that means he can face the World Heavyweight Champion, anytime within the next 12 months

The Crowd Cheers

Eric Bischoff: This next one is a real big one, this will go down in history for years to come, last night at Wrestlemania, Randy Orton defeated The Undertaker to end his 12 match win streak

The crowd boo’s heavily following that statement

Eric Bischoff: That alone was enough to out perform Smackdown, but in what was one of the greatest main events in Wrestlemania history, Batista defeated Triple H to win the World Heavyweight Championship

The crowd erupts and a Batista chant breaks out

Eric Bischoff: Next week on Raw, history will be made again, as for one night only, both Raw and Smackdown superstars will assemble right here on Raw for a Brand Lottery, where 5 superstars from Raw will be traded to Smackdown and vice versa, nobody is exempt from this draft right down from Good Ol’ Jim Ross to the World Champion Batista, or even WWE Champion John Cena

The fans cheer

Eric Bischoff: But that’s next week, as for tonight…

Bischoff smiles

Eric Bischoff: In a block buster six man tag team main event, Gene Snitsky will team up with Ric Flair and Triple H, to take on Kane, Chris Jericho and the new World Heavyweight Champion, Batista!!!!

The fans erupt following the announcement

Eric Bischoff: Now lets get this show underway with none other than The Heart Break Kid Shawn Michaels!!!!!

”Sexy Boy” plays throughout the arena to a huge pop from the crowd as Shawn Michaels makes his way down the ramp and Bischoff leaves.

Jim Ross: What a blockbuster announcement by Eric Bischoff, a draft lottery next week on Raw

Jerry Lawler: That means we could lose a star such as Shawn Michaels

“Just close your eyes” plays throughout the arena to heat from the crowd as Christian makes his way to the ring, accompanied by Tyson Tomko

Jerry Lawler: Or even Christian

Jim Ross: We could lose both

Jerry Lawler: Don’t say that JR, I couldn’t imagine Raw without both of these men

Jim Ross: Momentarily folks we have Shawn Michaels taking on Christian, after we come back from this commercial break


Match #1
Shawn Michaels vs. Christian (with Tyson Tomko)

Even match up with Tomko being ejected from ringside after throwing Shawn Michaels into the steel steps.

Match Ending: Christian nails a reverse DDT then covers 1-2-kickout. Christian slams the mat in frustration of being unable to put Michaels away. Christian picks up the Heart Break Kid and tries to deliver the Unprettier but Michaels shoves him face first into the turnbuckle and rolls him up for the 1-2-kickout. Christian gets up and gets met with a right hand from Michaels, Michaels kicks Christian in the midsection and delivers a DDT, then climbs to the top. Michaels hits the Diving Elbow Drop then stands up and fires up the crowd. Michaels stomps over in the corner as Christian gets up, Christian gets to his feet and turns around and Michaels delivers Sweet Chin Music then covers for the 1-2-3.
Winner: Shawn Michaels

Shawn Michaels stands up and salutes the crowd but from out of nowhere is attacked from behind by Muhammad Hassan. Hassan delivers repeated hard right hands to the forehead of Michaels. Hassan then kicks Michaels in the midsection then delivers a Modified STO leaving Michaels out in the centre of the ring. Hassan taunts the crowd then spits on Shawn Michaels to huge heat before leaving. Hassan makes his way up the ramp with Daivari at his side smiling at Michaels while Daivari shouts at Michaels.

Jim Ross: What the hell is that about?

Jerry Lawler: I haven’t a clue JR

Jim Ross: Why did Muhammad Hassan just attack Shawn Michaels?

Jerry Lawler: I don’t know what their agenda is but I’m sure there will be hell to pay for it

Jim Ross: Well we are going to go backstage to Maria who has caught up with Muhammad Hassan

We cut backstage to see Muhammad Hassan and Khosrow Daivari standing with Maria.

Maria: Well Muhammad, everybody wants to know, why did you attack Shawn Michaels?

Muhammad Hassan: No, let me ask you a question Maria, why was I left out of Wrestlemania?

Maria: I…

Muhammad Hassan: I’ll tell you why, because of that spineless General Manager Eric Bischoff, who picked 6 other people instead of me, why? Not because they are more talented, but because I am Arab-American, this blatant discrimination kept me from being on Wrestlemania, and the man I just attacked right there, Shawn Michaels

The crowd cheers

Muhammad Hassan: He was on Wrestlemania, and he got his ass kicked by Kurt Angle, If I had faced Kurt Angle, I would’ve beaten him, but I wasn’t given that opportunity, so from now on around here, I’m not going to wait on Eric Bischoff to make decisions, I am going to take matters into my own hands…

Khosrow Daivari then shouts in a foreign language then the two leave looking disgusted as we go to a commercial break.


Jim Ross: Welcome back ladies and gentlemen, moments ago after Shawn Michaels defeated Christian in a one on one match, Michaels was attacked by Muhammad Hassan

The footage is shown of Hassan attacking Michaels and hitting the modified STO

Jerry Lawler: Well obviously Hassan was jealous of Michaels because Michaels was on Wrestlemania and he wasn’t

We cut backstage to see Batista entering the building to a huge pop wearing a black Armani suit, with the World Title belt over his shoulder.

Jim Ross: A massive main event has been assigned by General manager Eric Bischoff that was announced earlier in the evening, Gene Snitsky, Ric Flair and Triple H taking on Batista, Kane and Chris Jericho

Jerry Lawler: Go on you can say it JR

Jim Ross: That one will be a slobber knocker

“Ain’t No Stoppin Me” hits throughout the arena to a big pop as Shelton Benjamin makes his way to the ring for the upcoming match

Jim Ross: Shelton Benjamin is perhaps the most gifted athlete here on Raw, and has certainly been a fighting Intercontinental Champion but he may have his work cut out tonight

Jerry Lawler: I couldn’t argue with that JR

Match #2
WWE Intercontinental Championship
Tyson Tomko vs. Shelton Benjamin ©

Tyson Tomko controls most of the matchup working on Shelton Benjamin

Match Ending: Tomko signals that the match is over and sets Shelton Benjamin waiting on him to get up. Tomko tries a big boot but Benjamin ducks and nails a superkick. Shelton covers but only gets a two count. Tomko tries to make his way to his feet but Shelton leaps over him and tries a sunset flip but Tomko counters and tries to punch Shelton but Shelton rolls out of the way and Tomko hits the mat. Shelton sets Tomko then hits the T-Bone Suplex and covers for the 1-2-3.
Winner: and still WWE Intercontinental Champion…Shelton Benjamin!!!

Jim Ross: After a hard fought match, Shelton Benjamin retains the Intercontinental Title!!

Jerry Lawler: The reign of Shelton Benjamin continues here on Raw

A video package-hyping Backlash in 5 weeks time plays on the titontron.


Jim Ross: Welcome back to Monday Night Raw

“Burn in my Light” plays throughout the arena to huge heat from the crowd as Randy Orton makes his way down to the ring with a huge smile on his face, wearing the Legend Killer T-Shirt.

Jim Ross: Here comes the Legend Killer Randy Orton who last night at Wrestlemania defeated The Undertaker

Jerry Lawler: The man is greatness JR, it was his destiny to defeat The Undertaker, he was the youngest World Heavyweight Champion in history

Orton gets a microphone from Lillian Garcia and stands in the middle of the ring as the music cuts.

Randy Orton: Last night at Wrestlemania 21, I proved to all the doubters, I proved to all the critics, I proved to everyone around the World, that I am indeed the Legend Killer

The fans start an Orton sucks chant

Randy Orton: I did what many couldn’t do, I did what names such as Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Diesel, King Kong Bundy, Triple H and Kane couldn’t do

Orton smiles as the crowd continue their chant

Randy Orton: I beat The Undertaker at Wrestlemania ending his 12 match win streak, Ladies and Gentlemen, the legacy of The Undertaker now is nothing more than a mere myth, he entered the ring last night with an already tarnished legacy and he left with it destroyed

Orton laughs as the crowd gives the statement heat

Randy Orton: Courtesy of the Legend Killer Randy Orton

Orton raises his arms into the air and smiles but is cut off by “Stand Back, there’s a Hurricane coming through” to a decent pop as The Hurricane makes his way to the ring.

Match #3
The “Legend Killer” Randy Orton vs. The Hurricane

Orton dominates the entire match up with Hurricane not scoring with any offence at all

Match Ending: Orton scouts Hurricane waiting on him to get up and lands the RKO for the 1-2-3.
Winner: The “Legend Killer” Randy Orton

After the match Orton stands up and raises his arms into the air celebrating. Then the lights go out and a gong is heard throughout the arena, after about a minute the lights go back on and The Undertaker is standing behind Randy Orton. The fans begin to cheer as Orton turns around; Taker grabs Orton then delivers a chokeslam. Security runs down to arrest Taker but the lights once again go out then when they come back on, Taker is nowhere to be seen.

Jim Ross: An attack by The Undertaker on Randy Orton

Jerry Lawler: What a sore loser the Undertaker is JR, he loses at Wrestlemania then attacks The Legend Killer

We cut backstage to see Triple H pacing about the locker room with Ric Flair sitting on a steel chair.

Triple H: I can’t believe it…

Ric Flair: Don’t worry Hunter, you’ll win the title back from Batista, he got lucky

Triple H: I wasn’t talking about that, I can’t believe Eric Bischoff, booking us against Batista, Kane and Jericho, just after Wrestlemania

Ric Flair: Come on Hunter, You’re the Game, you can lead your team to victory tonight

Triple H looks away

Ric Flair: You are the greatest wrestler alive today! A ten time World Heavyweight Champion

Ric Flair sighs

Ric Flair: Or maybe the greatest wrestler alive today isn’t you at all

Triple H turns around

Triple H: What the hell are you talking about?

Ric Flair: Maybe the greatest wrestler alive today is the current World Heavyweight Champion…Batista!!

Triple H stands up and gets in the face of Flair then begins to shout

Triple H: I am the greatest, I am the ten time World Heavyweight Champion and tonight I will prove once and for all that Dave Batista is not in my league!!!!!!!

Ric Flair: That’s the Triple H I wanted to see, that fire I wanted to get out of you, that’s the Triple H that will lead his team to victory tonight in the main event, wooooo!!

Triple H walks over and continues to get ready as Snitsky enters the locker room, Flair walks over and tells him to go out, then follows and shuts the door

Flair: Gene, Hunters just a little upset right now about losing his title…

Snitsky: That wasn’t my fault

Flair: So I have to fire him up just now I don’t think you coming in would be best right now, see you out there Snitsky

Snitsky nods his head and walks away; the camera zooms in on Flair who looks concerned

We cut back to Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler

Jim Ross: It looks like Ric Flair is having a few problems right there with Triple H

Jerry Lawler: Well The Game isn’t happy about having to compete in such a huge match the night after Wrestlemania

Jim Ross: Well I think The Game realizes that the new Worlds Champion Batista has his number King

“You think you know me” hits as Edge comes out for his up coming match.

Jim Ross: Edge in action, when we come back


Match #4
Edge vs. Rhyno

Rhyno gets the early advantage but Edge soon battles back.

Match Ending: Rhyno sets Edge and waits on him to get up, Edge turns around and Rhyno goes for the Gore but Edge gets out of the way. Edge then delivers the Spear on Rhyno followed by the Edgecator for a Submission win, following the match it takes several referees to get Edge to break the hold.
Winner: Edge

Edge finally lets the hold go and storms backstage

Jim Ross: Edge is still obviously disappointed from not winning the Money in the Bank Ladder Match last night but come on, there was no need for that

Jerry Lawler: What more can he do JR? He’s been screwed time and time again in his quest to get a chance at the World Heavyweight Championship, what more does he have to do to get a fair opportunity

Jim Ross: Well he could’ve won the Ladder Match last night and could’ve had a chance at the World Champion anytime up until Wrestlemania 22

We cut backstage to see Coach running towards Edge

Coach: Edge, Edge, wait up

Edge stops and turns towards Coach

Coach: Moments ago after your victory in your…(cut off)

Edge: Victory? That was no victory that was a pratice match, that didn’t even matter to me; the only thing that matters to me is the World Heavyweight Championship!!!

Edge begins to breath heavily

Edge: I had a chance to win a contract that would give me a one on one opportunity at the Champion, anytime of my choosing and Chris Jericho took it away from me!!!

Edge looks around almost set to explode

Edge: Chris Jericho made my life hell by taking away my opportunity at the World Title, so I’ll just have to make his hell…

Edge storms off as we cut back to Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler

Jerry Lawler: Quite frankly I can’t blame Edge JR, he deserves his chance at the World Title more than anyone else here on Raw

Jim Ross: He didn’t win the ladder match King, Chris Jericho won it so Edge doesn’t deserve a damn thing!

We cut backstage to see Chris Benoit walking down the corridor, he bumps into someone and the person turns around and turns out to be Chris Masters.

Chris Masters: Watch were your going man

Chris Benoit: What did you just say to me?

Benoit gets in the face of Masters who backs off a little

Chris Masters: Now I don’t like to brag ok, but you just bumped into greatness, you bumped into The Masterpiece

Chris Benoit: Oh really?

Chris Masters looks down at Chris Benoit’s top

Chris Masters: The crippler crossface huh?

Chris Benoit: What about it?

Chris Masters: Impressive, I guess that must be the second best submission...(cut off)

Chris Benoit: Wow, Wow, Wow, what the hell do you mean second best?

Chris Masters: Well obviously my submission move The Masterlock is the greatest submission in World Wrestling Entertainment, I mean nobody has ever escaped it…

Masters stops bragging as he sees the look Benoit draws him; he backs off then quickly rushes away

We cut back to Jim Ross and Jerry “The King” Lawler

Jim Ross: Chris Benoit not impressed with the claims that Chris Masters made about the Masterlock

Jerry Lawler: Yeah well, he is arrogant but he is right when he says nobody has ever broke out of that hold JR

“Time to Play the Game” hits throughout the arena to huge heat from the crowd as Triple H and Ric Flair make their way to the ring for the upcoming match.

Jim Ross: The six man tag team main event, when we come back from our last commercial break


Main Event
Triple H, Ric Flair & Gene Snitsky vs. Batista, Kane and Chris Jericho

Even match although Evolution and Snitsky gain the upper hand by isolating Chris Jericho, eventually they get the tag to Batista.

Match Ending: Batista comes into the ring and shoulder blocks Ric Flair then goes after The Game but gets levelled by Snitsky, Kane comes in and knocks Snitsky out of the ring then follows. Triple H kicks Batista in the midsection and goes for the Pedigree but Batista backdrops him over the ropes to the floor. Ric Flair runs at Batista but Batista delivers a hard spinebuster then raises both his hands into the air then gives the thumbs down. Batista picks up Ric Flair and hits the Batista Bomb for the 1-2-3
Winners: Chris Jericho, Kane and the World Heavyweight Champion…Batista!!!!

Jim Ross: Once again, Batista remains one step ahead of Evolution see you next week

The Show goes off the air with Batista in the ring staring at a frightened looking Triple H who is on the ramp.


I would've liked to add some bold and italics but the first time I did it, the browser crashed and I've had to redo it so I couldn't really be bothered, I'll add it for future shows.

Re: WWE: The Real Rise of Glory

Great show man! A few spelling errors but that's always ok. Really like the characters you're building rather than storylines right away. Looks like we'll be seeing more Orton Vs. Taker which is always good but I'm not a fan of HHH Vs. Batista. Can't wait for the Lottery Draft either...should be interesting who gets traded. Overall, 8/10. But like you said...just working some rust off.:D

Re: WWE: The Real Rise of Glory

Great show man, I can't wait to see what comes from this thread as it looks to have alot of potential. Liking where you might go with Masters and Benoit maybe a submission match at Backlash? Can't wait as Juvy said for the lottery draft either. Good luck with this.

Re: WWE: The Real Rise of Glory

Aw, damn that was hard to read without bold and italics :(

Anyway, onto the show, great stuff, great promos, particularly Orton's, that was definitely believable, you really have him down to a tee. The the next best promo was definitely The Masters/Benoit one, i love Chris Masters, his gimmick and his submission. I hope you can go far with him.

Some great match bookings, although i would have liked to see HBK do something to get revenge later in the show after Hassan's attack. The Edge promo was good as well, i hate Edge as heel, unless hes his dorky "cool" self as part of E+C :)

I don't personally like the idea of Batista as champ, as i dont rate his mic work, or in-ring ability, however, hopefully you can win me over. Benjamin is a strong IC Champ, and Tomko is a strong challenger, i want a CLB/Benjamin feud yo, that would be way cool.

Can't wait for the draft, should be cool to see if any big trades occur, all in all, 9/10 for your first show back, maybe a little longer next time, although im not sure how to make it longer :)

Re: WWE: The Real Rise of Glory

Lovely stuff.

Loz on the thread name btw. Cant help but think I've heard it somewhere before...

Anyways, this is how I remember you when I first joined this forum, the guy that inspired me to write, and that was excellent.

The Bischoff in ring thing was mandatory I guess, didnt do too much, but got the point across.

I like the Hassan - HBK feud, and the Hassan promo was fantabulous. Some may say you're stealing this from WWE, but I can back you up, as I remember you telling me about this feud a good few weeks ago. I like the Hassan character, and feuding him with Michaels helps him in the ring.

"The Legend Killer" Randy Orton...like the fact your using that as part of his in ring name more so than WWE do.

I dont like Chris Masters, but I thought you done an excellent job with him here, and Benoit can get good matches out of mops, so if they should meet, it wont be too bad.

Snitsky: It wasnt my fault. Classic...line of the month IMO. Yeah, he's used it before, but this was the most funny situation I've heard him use it with.

Batista shows his dominance with a win over Flair. Triple H just cant one up The Animal. Will it change next week?? who knows.

Draft Lottery next week should be superb. Looking forward to SD too.

Re: WWE: The Real Rise of Glory

ME, a great match. My only problem is with the match endings. I think you should write longer so we can get better observed action. But that was ONLY mistake you made. Everything else kicked ass. 8/10. Could have been higher but you should write longer on your matches.

Wrestlemania Results
-Eddie Guerrero versus Rey Mysterio: didn't matter who won this because their both great.
-Big Show versus Akebono: Good to see Big Show win, because you're actually going to be using the Big Show.
-Christy Hemme versus Trish Stratus: WWE Women's Title means nothing.
-Money In The Bank Ladder Match: Again, didn't matter who won, but nice to Jericho going to the main event spot.
-Kurt Angle versus Shawn Michaels: Again didn't matter who won.
-Undertaker versus Randy Orton: Absolutely no way in hell should Orton have defeated Taker, even in a booking thread.
-John Bradshaw Layfield versus John Cena: No way should John Cena be WWE champion.
-Triple H versus Batista: No way should Batista be World Champion.


-No bold.

-Nice build up between Muhammad Hassan and Shawn Michaels.
-Having Shelton Benjamin defeat Tyson Tomko.
-Good to see you are at least carrying on with the Undertaker/Randy Orton feud.
-Nice to see Ric Flair motivating Triple H.
-Confrontation between Chris Benoit and Chris Masters.

A video recap plays of the Smackdown and Interpromotional Matches at Wrestlemania, Chavo helping Eddie defeat Rey Mysterio, Big Show winning the sumo match, The Undertaker losing to Randy Orton, Kurt Angle defeating Shawn Michaels, John Cena defeating John Bradshaw Layfield to win the WWE Championship.

The pyro goes off and the Smackdown Theme plays throughout the arena.

Michael Cole: Welcome to WWE Smackdown, we are just several days removed from Wrestlemania 21!!!!

Tazz: That Wrestlemania had to be one of the best ever Cole, so many great matches it was just unbelievable!

“My Time is now” hits throughout the arena to a huge pop from the crowd as John Cena makes his way to the ring.

Michael Cole: We’re gonna kick the show off with the new WWE Champion…John Cena!!!

The Doctor Of Thugonomics climbs into the ring with the WWE Championship raised with his left arm. Cena points to the fans and showing that he has a great deal of respect for them. Cena now climbs to the top turnbuckle as the crowd is going wild over the new champion of SmackDown! John Cena climbs to another turnbuckle and raises the Heavyweight Title as high as he can. Pyros explode and confetti falls from the sky. John Cena jumps down from the turnbuckle and catches his breath from all the excitement. The Champion grabs a microphone as his music is cut. The fans continue to chant, “Cena-Cena-Cena!” John Cena points to the fans to show them how much he appreciates them. The Doctor waits for the fans to quiet down the begins to speak…

Cena: “…New York…”

The crowd pops again after hearing their city name heard.

Cena: “…The Champ…IS…HERE!!!!!”

The crowd erupts once again and the “Cena!” chants begin. John Cena gets them to quiet down a little so he can continue speaking.

Cena: “Wow! WrestleMania 21…the most exciting moment in my life. After just three short years, I’m on top of the World! Yeahhh!!!!”

The crowd is off their feet and giving John Cena a standing ovation.

Cena: “Like I said before…there’s people who talk about…and people who…BE about it! Well…I’m here to represent…not only the WWE…not only SmackDown…but to all of you.”

The Doctor of Thugonomics points around to the fans and they cheer a little.

Cena: “Hell…you’re the chain gang! You’re all my homies! Without you…none of this would’ve happen. That’s why…from the bottom of my heart…to all of you that stood in line for three hours to get my autograph…to those who slept in tents for a week just to get tickets to see me…to those who…can’t see me ‘cause they’re way back up in the nosebleed section…to those forced to sit and watch at home ‘cause they couldn’t afford a ticket…thank you!”

The crowd gives another standing ovation and a few whistles.

Cena: “WrestleMania is indescribable…my first WrestleMania, I beat Big Show for the United States Title. It was a hell of a moment and I thought there was no way I was going to top that but…I did it! And you know…I have to thank JBL too. He put up a heck of a fight…the longest reigning champion in ten years…the self-proclaimed wresting…god. Bradshaw…there’s one flaw in your strategy…I noticed it…I don’t know if anybody else noticed it…but you’re missing support. Hell, I used to be like you…trashing every wrestler…talking smack to the fans…but when you earn their respect…when they follow your every move…they give you that adrenaline rush that you need in desperate times….they are the sixth man…they are your defensive back…they drive you to do the very best you can do! With them…I am untouchable! With them…I’m the man! With them…you can’t see me!”

“Longhorn” begins to play over the PA system and the white stretch limo pulls into the arena. It stops in the aisleway and the limo driver comes out. He goes all the way to the end of the long vehicle and opens the door for the former champion, John Bradshaw Layfield. JBL comes out in his suit with an angry look on his face. He slowly climbs into the ring as the crowd boos him the entire time. The music stops playing and the fans quiet down. JBL grabs a microphone and gets ready to speak.

Cena: “Surprise…surprise…surprise…It’s J…B…L! Now…why would JBL be out here interrupting the new WWE Champion?”

JBL: “You know damn well why I am out here tonight! Due to your actions at WrestleMania…I have no other option but to challenge you right here…right now for the WWE Championship! It says so in my contract that I can have a rematch anytime…anywhere…so let’s go right now!”

Cena: “Woah! Woah! Woah! Woah! Woah! Hang on there a sec Skippy…you can’t be just jumping out here challenging the champ like that…show some respect.”

JBL: “Respect? You want ME…a high class…wealthy…successful man to show respect to you low-life, egotistical punk? I don’t think so! You’re nothing but a piece of garbage! Whenever I look at MY Heavyweight Title…and read your nameplate across it rather than mine…it makes me feel sick! I actually want to vomit every time I hear your name and WWE Champion in the same sentence! And here you are talking about respect…you with that title around your waist…the very title that I held onto longer than anybody else in the past decade…THAT is disrespectful…that is throwing the class…the dignity…the prestige all out the window. That title with you is about as worthless as your career!”

The fans boo emphatically now as JBL and John Cena stare each other down.

Cena: “So that’s what you want to do? You want to stir the pot a little more? You want your rematch right now? Let me tell you something…now that this is with me…I’m not letting go that easily! Because tonight…you’re not just facing me…you’re facing the ENTIRE Chain Gang! And we’re here to represent in this house!!!!!!!”

The crowd erupts into a frenzy. The champ waits for them to quiet down and continues what he was going to say.

Cena: “Even if we are here…in your hometown of New York City…it seems like I’ve still got the home field advantage. Hell, whether we’re in Iraq…Japan…or the good old U.S.A…nobody seems to like you! But back to business…we’re in MSG baby!!!!! You know what that means? We’re gonna have to blow the roof of this joint! And you know how we’re gonna do that? Thugonomics Style baby!!!!!!”

The crowd erupts and JBL is trying to get them to shut up. Just then, “Mac Militant” begins to play and General Manager, Theodore Long makes his way to the ring. He has a microphone in hand and ready to make an announcement.

Long: “It seems to me…that we have a problem…with you two getting along! …So…it’s true that in the contract at WrestleMania, JBL did sign the rematch clause….and I’m proud to say we’re in Madison Square Garden! But most importantly…we have a new champion! Congratulations John Cena…you’re going to have many challenges ahead of you…and your first one…is tonight! It will be a WrestleMania rematch tonight for the WWE Championship!”

The crowd erupts and Cena gets them worked up too over the match. JBL seems pleased as well with that announcement. Long gets them to quiet down.

Long: “But we don’t want just any kind of match…no, no…we’re gonna do this, like John Cena said…Thugonomics style! Which means…for the first time in the history of Smackdown…we’re gonna have a Thugonomics Match! Ya feel me? Now…let me hear everybody…if you like the sound of tonight’s main event…gimme a holla holla!”

The fans yell out, “Holla! Holla!” as they continue to cheer. JBL and John Cena stare each other down with evil glares in their eyes as the cameras cut to a commercial break.


Cole: We’re back to SmackDown! And ladies and gentlemen…just a few moments ago, we witnessed a great moment. It was the dawning of a new era here for SmackDown…it’s John Cena’s time! Then General Manager, Theodore Long came out and made a Thugonomics Match between the two tonight for the WWE Championship.”

Tazz: “I think the question in everybody’s mind is what in the hell a Thugonomics Match is.”

Cole: “Exactly. But folks…at WrestleMania, during the Eddie Guerrero and Rey Mysterio match, Chavo Guerrero got involved and helped Eddie win the match. Los Guerreros are reformed…but the question I want answered is what becomes of the tag team titles?”

Tazz: “You know what, I’m not sure. I’ve never seen this happen where reigning tag team champions turn on each other and go their separate ways like that. I’m sure the GM will think of something.”

…Oooooo Chavo…

Chavo Guerrer’s music hits and he comes out with Eddie Guerrero in the lowrider to huge heat from the crowd.

Tazz: "This is what Rey Mysterio has been wanting all week long…he’s gonna be stepping into the ring with Chavo Guerrero to try and gain some redemption costing him a match at WrestleMania 21.”

A video recap of Eddie Guerrero against Rey Mysterio is shown with Chavo helping Eddie win.

Chavo Guerrero (w/Eddie) vs. Rey Mysterio


Chavo Guerrero goes for a Gory Bomb but Rey counters into a sunset flip…




Rey Mysterio delivers an arm drag on Chavo who gets up quickly. Rey hits another arm drag followed by several right hands to the forehead. Rey Mysterio quickly climbs up the turnbuckle and comes off with a hurricanrana followed by the cover but he gets no count as Eddie jumps up onto the apron to distract the referee. Rey breaks the pin and runs at Eddie delivering a dropkick to the knee causing Eddie to fall face first into the ring apron. The distraction allows Chavo to nail Rey from behind. Chavo delivers several right hands on Rey causing him to stagger across the ring. Chavo then runs at Rey but Rey hits a drop toe hold sending Chavo onto the middle rope. Mysterio signals for the 619 and runs off the ropes but gets tripped up by Eddie Guerrero. Eddie then drags Mysterio out by his feet and whips him HARD into the steel steps causing the referee to signal for the DQ.

Winner: Rey Mysterio by DQ

Eddie throws Rey back into the ring and climbs in himself. Los Guerreros begin stomping away at Rey Mysterio. Eddie signals for Chavo to get a steel chair. Chavo grabs a steel chair and comes into the ring. Eddie holds up Mysterio and Chavo strikes him in the head with a chair, Eddie then flings down Mysterio. Los Guerreros taunt the crowd to huge heat before leaving.

Cole: "That was uncalled for, Rey Mysterio had the match won and that damn Eddie Guerrero attacked him!"

Tazz: "Well Mysterio needs help to the back here Cole, there’s no doubt, Los Guerreros definitely did a number on Rey Mysterio."

Cole: "Yeah to say the least…they cracked his skull with the damn steel chair!! Wait…what’s this? I’m being told that we understand Josh Matthews is standing by with Los Guerreros."

We cut backstage to see Josh Matthews standing with Los Guerreros on either side of him.

Josh: "Eddie Guerrero moments ago you attacked Rey Mysterio when he clearly had your nephew Chavo beaten…"

Chavo: "Woah, hold on a second Josh, he didn’t have me beaten…"

Eddie: "You want to know why I attacked Rey? You wanna know why I attacked my pal, Rey Mysterio? He took advantage of me homes! He rode my coattail! I worked my ass off to give myself a name and he was taking it away from me! Just look at WrestleMania shall we? I mean…last year I was in SmackDown’s main event taking on Kurt Angle for the WWE Championship. Now…look at me…I had a hard time beating Rey Mysterio. Why? Because he’s been holding me back, Essa! I’m not a tag team wrestler anymore! I proved that wrong at No Way Out last year…when I defeated Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship! I’m a former WWE Champion Essa…I shouldn’t be opening up WrestleMania! I am Latino Heat! I am Eddie Guerrero! I am the best pure entertainer there is today! Rey Mysterio is nothing but a glory hog…and I needed to take care of him before he did any more damage! Now you see what I mean…Essa?"

Josh: Uh…"

Chavo: “Eddie…screw this guy…let’s go out and celebrate homes!”

Eddie and Chavo start talking about their family then bump into Theodore Long.

Long: “Now listen up! I can not…have not…will not stand for actions like I just seen out there…and like the stunt you two pulled at WrestleMania! Now…I know there’s a lottery draft coming up where all the SmackDown wrestlers will be there, and personally…I would love to see the two of you outta here! Because you’re nothing but trouble! However…if you do stay…Eddie Guerrero…like it or not, you are still tag team champions with Rey Mysterio! Therefore…next week…it’s going to be Rey Mysterio…and a partner of his choice…against Los Guerreros! And if I see anything going on…any funny business at all…you’ll both be out of a job! Now holla back playa!”

Long smiles and pats Los Guerreros on the backs then walks off. Eddie and Chavo are pissed off.


A short video is shown of the phenomenal match between HBK Shawn Micheals and Kurt Angle. The video then cuts to Kurt Angle who is in the ring.

Kurt: “Now…at WrestleMania 21…I defeated Shawn Micheals. That’s right! Your Olympic Hero is still the man! I did everything I said I was…from accomplishing everything Shawn did in his career to beating his ass at Wrestlemania! I won the ladder match…I made Marty Janetty tap out…I made Sensational Sherri tap out…and I made Shawn Micheals tap out! Swish! Three points for Kurt right here! Wooo! But I’m not here to brag about how bad I beat a has been, I’m here to bring an issue forward. You see…while I became occupied and obsessed with defeating Shawn Micheals…I put my men on the sidelines. I completely forgot about them! I’m talking about Luther Reigns and Mark Jindrak! I finally have the time to take care of this problem…both of them seem to be having their differences so I wanna resolve the issue right now! Come on guys…get out here!”

Both Luther Reigns and Mark Jindrak walk out at the same time, keeping a close eye on each other. They step into the ring and Kurt asks them off the microphone what’s wrong with them. Both competitors aren’t talking so Angle gives them both a slap to wake up to.

Kurt: “What the hell is wrong with the both of you?! I take you under my wing! I take you and try to make you become the best that you can be! I give you the chance to make a name for yourselves and you blow it all away? Not on my watch! Mark…what did knocking out Luther Reigns get for you? Huh? NOWHERE!”

Luther Reigns starts chuckling.

Kurt: “Shutup Luther! I took you from a semi-recognized actor…brutal thug…ass whooping machine…and I tried transforming you into a decent wrestler. But all you can do is make an ass out of yourself trying to tip over a Jeep. What the hell?”

Both competitors are quiet again.

Kurt: “You both…obviously don’t remember anything I taught you. Teamwork is everything! I won’t stand for this! Luther…you’re going to be the referee…next week though…since we’re going to be in Phoenix, Arizona…I suggest you get ready because you’re going to be facing me in my hometown hero challenge. As for you Mark Jindrak…today’s your lucky day because tonight…we’re in New York…just like you! Now ring the bell!”

Cole: “What?”

Tazz: “Ring the bell…you don’t think that…”

Hometown Hero Challenge: Kurt Angle Vs. Mark Jindrak


Mark Jindrak has Kurt Angle up in a military press. The veteran, Kurt Angle shifts his weight, drops to his feet, sweeps the leg of Mark Jindrak and applies the Ankle Lock! Mark Jindrak tries to desperately hang on but to no avail because within a minute or so…Jindrak taps out!

Winner: Kurt Angle by Submission

Kurt Angle celebrates his victory pointing to Luther Reigns that he is next. Cameras cut backstage to Paul London who is doing a handstand and holding position very well. Someone walks by the Cruiserweight Champion and gives him a hard kidney slap. Paul London buckles to the floor and looks up to see Spike Dudley.

Spike: “I’ll see you in the ring. I can’t wait to be Cruiserweight Champion again!”

London: “What makes you say you’re going to win?”

Spike: “I’m the boss! I always win!”

Spike boots London in the face and walks away.

Cole: “Next, ladies and gentlemen, the Cruiserweight Championship is on the line as Paul London defends against…Spike Dudley! We’ll be back!”


WWE Cruiserweight Championship Match: Paul London(c) Vs. Spike Dudley


Paul London bodyslams Spike near the corner and taunts the crowd. They rise to their feet as the Cruiserweight Champion climbs up to the top turnbuckle. He signals for the 450 splash and goes for it however, Spike Dudley slides out of the ring! Spike gets back in the ring quickly and picks up Paul London. He gets ready to deliver the Dudley Dog until…

A long, rocket-like pyro dives from the center of the arena to the titantron and sets off a few more. The Dudleys come out to their theme music and seem happy to be back on SmackDown. Spike smiles too, seeing that his brothers are back with him. The Dudleys come into the ring and they both give Spike a hug. Spike is loving this moment and tells them to pick up Paul London and give them the 3D. D-Von goes over to pick up London as Bubba gives Spike a long hug and picks him up too. D-Von picks up London and puts him up against the corner. D-Von turns around and delivers a shocking 3D to Spike Dudley! The referee calls for the bell.

Winner: Spike Dudley by DQ

Bubba gives D-Von a quick shove and tells him to get the tables. D-Von darts to the outside and pulls out a table from under the ring. They set it up and Paul London quickly leaves the ring to avoid trouble. Bubba sits on the top rope as D-Von sets up the table. D-Von picks up Spike and places him on Bubba’s shoulder. Bubba powerbombs Spike through the table and then the Dudleys celebrate.

Cole: “What a return for Bubba Ray and D-Von.”

Tazz: “But why would they attack their brother and boss?”

Cole: “Maybe because they’re tired of being bossed around.”

Tazz: “That’s not fair. It’s not Spike’s fault.”

Cole: “Anyways, ladies and gentlemen, this past week on Raw, it was announced that a lottery draft will occur this coming Monday. You know what that means Tazz?”

Tazz: “Yeah…we’re gonna get five new superstars from Raw. Can you imagine if we got a Triple H or Chris Benoit?”

Cole: “That would be awesome. But that also means we have to lose five SmackDown superstars. Imagine if we lost Kurt Angle and Undertaker…”

Tazz: “You can’t think like that Cole…think on the bright side. That’s what I always do. Anyway…let’s take a look at the Raw Rebound.”

Clips are shown of Raw this past Monday with Bischoff announcing the Lottery Draft. It then shows Chris Masters and Chris Benoit having an argue in the back and the main event in which Chris Jericho, Kane and Batista defeating Evolution and Gene Snitsky.

Cameras cut to a dark room where The Undertaker appears from the shadows.

Undertaker: "Randy Orton...you awakened the beast when you slapped me in the face. And at WrestleMania...you relinquished a demon...a demon that hid in the darkest of dark recesses...waiting to arise from the spirit...the spirit...of The Undertaker! I am here to issue a warning...Randy. A warning that is well deserved. Next week...you and I will meet again. Maybe not in a match, maybe not in even in the ring...but when I find you...you will...rest...in...peace!"

Undertaker rolls his eyes into the back of his head as cameras cut to commercials.


We come back from commercials and Theodore Long is in his office looking at a picture of Martin Luther King Junior.

Long: "Oh …Mr. King…I also have a dream…I have a dream of prosperity…a dream of victory…a dream…of SmackDown’s prosperity. And that prosperity…lies within a certain superstar…that superstar is…”

Voice: “Carlito…Caribbean…Cool!”

The camera cuts to Carlito who just snuck into the General Manager’s office.

Long: “Carlito…I see you’re done sweeping the basement. I have another job for you…”

Carlito: “No! All these jobs you’re giving me…all this disrespect that you’re showing to Carlito…that’s not cool! But let me tell you what is cool…I have the doctor’s orders…the papers are coming in this weekend…Carlito will be able to compete in the ring. Now…that’s cool!”

Long: “That is definitely cool! Now let me tell ya playa…next week…if you’re still with us on SmackDown…you’re going to be in a match…with the WWE Champion whether it be John Cena or John Bradshaw Layfield.”

Carlito: “That’s cool! But you know what’s even cooler? Carlito Caribbean Cool…WWE…Champion!”

Long: “That might be cool to you…but you’re gonna have to wait because the match is going to be a non-title match! Ya feel me? Holla back!”

Carlito seems pissed off as he takes a big bite into his apple. Long walks out of his office and Carlito spits out his apple on the floor.

Carlito: “That’s not cool!”

The camera focuses on Carlito before cutting to John Bradshaw Layfield standing by with Josh Matthews.

Josh: “JBL…tonight you face John Cena in a WWE Title Match…but the deal is…it’s a Basic Thugonomics Match! We don’t know what the rules are…what’s your strategy going into this?”

JBL: “Pain! My plan is to inflict as much pain as possible on that piece of garbage, John Cena! That lowlife punk is going to get the beating of his life. I was WWE Champion longer than any other wrestler in the past decade! His win at WrestleMania was nothing…but a fluke! Nobody beats JBL and gets away with it. I am a wrestling…GOD! Tonight…I guarantee…victory!”

Tazz: “Strong words from JBL.”

Cole: “Ladies and gentlemen…our main event is next…John Cena defending the newly won WWE Championship against JBL in a Basic Thugonomics Match. After this commercial break.”


Chimel: “Ladies and gentlemen…this is the Basic Thugonomics Match. Now in this match…the only way to score a victory by pinfall or submission. Weapons of all kinds are scattered on the ropes and around ringside related to thug life.”

Basic Thugonomics WWE Championship Match: John Cena(c) Vs. JBL


John Bradshaw Layfield picks up the chain and padlock and whips it across Cena’s spine. JBL waits for Cena to get up and attempts the Closeline From Hell. Cena dodges it then kicks Bradshaw in the mid-section and picks the challenger up for the FU. Layfield slides off Cena’s shoulders and attempts a Powerbomb now. Cena counters by standing up with JBL on his back and delivering the FU! Cena goes for the cover…




Winner: Still WWE Champion…John Cena!!!!!!!

John Cena celebrates with the fans in their seats as JBL retreats in pain to end the show.

Juvy. Excellent show. I loved the Dudley fued as of late. Also, the Cena/JBL match was excellent at it's fullest. Can't wait for Carlito and Cena next week. Also, the Angle/Reigns/Jindrak looks interesting but I hope it's a short fued so Angle can go back to the WWE title fued. Anyway, 9/10. Just brilliant. The matches could be longer though but I dont care. You rock!
