Stereotypical WrestleMania 22 video package plays with “I Dare You” by Shinedown playing in the background. It shows Triple H picking the win up against a formidable opponent in Snitsky. It then shows various spots from the Money in the Bank Ladder match, with it finally showing Eugene low-blowing Rey Mysterio and trying to rip off his mask before reaching up and grabbing the briefcase. It then shows highlights from Randy Orton taking on Shawn Michaels, with Michaels jumping off the top rope and Orton reversing and hitting Michaels with a RKO! It shows highlights of Trish Stratus retaining her title against Mickie James and after the match; Mickie offered Trish a handshake. Trish accepted but Mickie kissed Trish again. It shows Big Show and Kane and Ric Flair winning their match against The ******* Wrecking Crew and Shelton Benjamin, with Ric Flair picking up the Intercontinental Championship from Shelton Benjamin and Big Show and Kane retaining the World Tag Team Championships. It shows highlights from the interpromotional Women’s contest, with Ashley Massaro, Michelle McCool and Maria Kanellis picking up the win against Candice Michelle, Victoria and Torrie Wilson. It shows the bloody highlights between The Undertaker and Mick Foley, including the flaming table covered with thumbtacks. It shows the ending of the match, after Undertaker pins Foley. Taking laying in the middle of the ring and raising his arm up in the air, after clenching the 14-0 WrestleMania record. It finally shows highlights of the WWE Championship match. It shows Angle locking in the Ankle Lock on Cena two separate times and one of the times, torquing it so much that Cena’s face distorts, obviously where Angle broke Cena’s ankle. It then shows the end of the match, with Cena rolling Angle up from behind in a school boy pin and picking up the victory.
The camera then pans around the arena where Raw is taking place tonight. The camera then goes to the announce table, where Jerry Lawler, Joey Styles and Jonathan Coachman are sitting.
Styles: Hello ladies and gentleman and welcome to Monday Night Raw! We are here tonight, 24 hours removed from WrestleMania 22, and boy, what a spectacle that was!
King: Right you are, Joey. We saw one of the most gruesome matches that we’ve seen in quite a while last night, where SmackDowns Undertaker was able to defeat Raws Mick Foley in a horrific hardcore match. The ending of that match came when Undertaker chokeslammed Mick Foley through a table. And not only that… it was a FLAMING TABLE. And not only that, but it was a flaming table with thumbtacks on it!
Coach: And in a travesty of an event, Shelton Benjamin lost his Intercontinental Championship to Ric Flair. He didn’t even lose the title, Ric Flair more of won the title because he had Big Show and Kane on his team.
Before much more is said, “Medal” hits over the P.A. system as a very pissed off looking Kurt Angle walks out onto the ramp.
Styles: And this man, Kurt Angle, came SO close to winning the WWE Championship last night. In fact, he broke the WWE Champion John Cenas ankle in the process of his quest to win the WWE Championship.
Coach: Angle should be out here with the WWE Championship. John Cena passed out in the match and stupid referee Mike Chioda for some reason didn’t call for the bell!
Lawler: What are you talking about, Coach?! Cena never passed out in the match! His arm only dropped twice and he was able to keep it up a third time!
Angle rolls into the ring and walks over to the other side of the ring and gets a mic. He puts it up to his mouth, but gets greeted by “You Suck” chants from the WWE faithful. He puts the mic down and shakes his head.
Angle: Stop the music and SHUT UP! God, you people are so annoying. I’m the only Olympic Gold Medalist in the WWE and this is the kind of treatment you people give me? Just because I’m the only champion that you people of Chicago will ever lay eyes on doesn’t mean that you have to boo me.
With this, massive boos come from the fans.
Angle: Talking about Champions… that’s why I’m out here. Last night… last night, I BROKE John Cenas ankle. I SHOULD be the WWE Champion! I broke his ankle. There is no friggen’ way that Cena didn’t tap after I broke his ankle. There is NO WAY Cena didn’t give up in the match after I broke his ankle and he wasn’t able to compete anymore. Where is your little WWE Champion right now, Chicago? Oh, that’s right. He’s back in Massachusetts on his couch, because I BROKE HIS FRIGGEN’ ANKLE!
The fans boo even more. Angle paces around the ring a bit.
Angle:I question this company. I question the intelligence of Mike Chioda. I question why he didn’t stop the match after he saw the excruciating pain etched in John Cena’s face. I question how he thinks that the match should have continued when one of the competitors were so completely dominated!
The fans boo even more as Angle is starting to garner more heat towards the Illinois fans.
Angle: I broke his ankle, and since I broke it, I think Cena should have to FORFEIT his WWE Championship. He should forfeit his Championship to the most intelligent, the most intense and the man with the most integrity on the roster, ME. I would be the BEST choice…
Before Angle can say more; “I’m Back” hits over the P.A. system. The fans actually cheer Bischoff, probably for him finally shutting Angle up. Bischoff has a mic in hand.
Bischoff: Hold on a second there, Kurt. First, let me just tell you, John Cena will NOT be stripped of his WWE Championship.
Cheer from the fans.
Bischoff: Therefore, you will not be awarded the WWE Championship. Yes, you broke John Cena’s ankle last night, but after talking to John this morning on the phone, he said that he should be back by Backlash. If he can come back by Backlash, John Cena will keep his WWE Championship. However, if Cena can’t compete at Backlash, then he will be stripped for his WWE Championship. And if that is the case; then a fatal four way contest will take place at Backlash for the then vacant WWE Championship.
Angle (Interrupting): I know for a fact that Cena will be out for longer than a month, Eric. Since I, by all means, should have won the match if not for the idiot Mike Chioda, I should just be given the WWE Championship right now. I am the best all around wrestling that you have on this roster, Eric. I am the one that put Cena out of action, and at Backlash, I shouldn’t have to win a friggen’ fatal four way match to win the WWE Championship that should be around my waist.
Bischoff: Kurt, for the last time. If John Cena will not be able to compete at Backlash, then you will have to WIN the WWE Championship. I am not, and no one will, reward you the WWE Championship. I don’t care if you broke Cena’s ankle. I don’t care if you come so close to winning the WWE Championship. You didn’t win it Kurt, and you’re going to have to earn the WWE Championship. As I said; if Cena can compete at Backlash then he will defend his WWE Championship there. If not, a match will take place for the championship. End of story.
”I’m Back” hits over the P.A. system as a fuming Kurt Angle is left in the middle of the ring as Bischoff retreats up the ramp, behind the curtain. The camera fades to black.
The camera comes back from commercial on the announce table.
Lawler: Huge announcement from Eric Bischoff before the break. If John Cena is not able to return to the WWE ring by Backlash from his broken ankle; he’ll have to vacate the WWE Championship.
Styles: And a fatal four way contest will take place at Backlash to crown the WWE Champion. Again, that’s only if John Cena is not able to return to action by Backlash.
”Virtual Voodoo” hits over the P.A. system as Umaga steps out onto the ramp.
Styles: And here he is, ladies and gentleman. A lot of buzz has been made about this man Umaga, and tonight he debuts on WWE Raw.
Lawler: He is also known as the Samoan Bulldozer.
Coach: And standing next to him there is his manager, Armando Alejandro Estrada.
The imposing Umaga makes his way down to the ring, yelling Samoan phrases as he walks down to the ring. The man with tribal tattoos on his face and body gets to the ring and rolls under the bottom rope. He climbs up the turnbuckle and stands on the middle rope, yelling tribal type yells at the crowd. He drops down from the middle rope and stands in the middle of the ring.
Lillian: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, accompanied by his manager Armando Alejandro Estrada, hailing from The Isle Samoa, Umaga!
”Hello Ladies” hits over the P.A. as Val Venis steps out from behind the curtain. He stops on the top of the ramp and slowly takes his towel off from his waist. He throws it into the crowd and a screaming female fan catches it and gets all googly eyed. He begins to make his way down the ramp.
Lillian: And his opponent, weighing in tonight at 244 pounds and hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada, Val Venis!
Venis gets to the ring and slides in. He stands up and looks at Lillian with a smile on his face and does a humping motion toward her, which Lillian blushes a bit. Referee Jack Doan rings the bell as Lillian is helped out of the ring by Val Venis.
Match 1: Umaga vs. Val Venis
Val turns around and gets a HUGE right hand from Umaga, rocking him. Umaga then delivers two more rights to Val and irish whips him into the corner. Venis hits the corner hard and Umaga runs at him, hitting him with a splash. Val Venis falls into the corner as Umaga goes to the other set of turnbuckles. He gets a running start and slams his backside into the face of Val Venis. Umaga lifts Val up to his feet and screams something Samoan into Val’s face. He then brings Val into the middle of the ring and takes his taped thumb and SLAMS it into the windpipe of Val! Val falls to the mat, clutching his throat as Umaga drops down ontop of him for the cover and picks up the three count.
Lillian: The winner of this matchup by pinfall, Umaga!
Styles: That was a DOMINATION effort by the debuting Umaga tonight, King.
Lawler: It sure was, Joey. That match lasted less than a minute.
Coach: Umaga just came in and dominated Val Venis here tonight. I just don’t know what else to say. This Umaga looks like an intimidating force, I can tell that much.
The camera fades backstage to see Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in their locker room.
Triple H: That PIG. That scoundrel. How could he? Who the hell does he think he is?! How does he think he can just kiss you like that Steph? Huh? Who the hell does he think he’s messing with?
Stephanie: I don’t know, Hunter. He’s gross. Did you see what he did at WrestleMania? He… he… he smelled my hair. He tried to kiss me again!
Triple H: I know what he did, Steph! I know I also beat him at WrestleMania. But that man, he won’t go down without a fight. I hit him in the head with a sledgehammer and he kicked out. I gave him everything I had and he still was able to kick out of everything I gave him. He’s a monster of a man, Steph.
Stephanie: He might be a monster of a man, Hunter. But you’re The Game. You’re a multiple time WWE Champion. You’ve headlined WrestleManias and you’ve won a lot of the matches that you headlined. Hunter, you can’t let him get in your head. He’s just a man. A man that you beat. A man that you pinned in the middle of that ring. No matter what Hunter, I know that you’ll prevail. You’re better than he is.
Triple H: You’re right Steph. I’m the game. And I’m THAT DAMN GOOD. I already beat this joker at WrestleMania and if he wants to come at me again, I’ll be ready. Snitsky crossed the line this time Steph, and I’ll kill him if he comes any closer to either of us.
The scene fades to commercial with Hunter in his locker room; smiling and hugging Steph.
The camera comes back to the announce table.
Coach: Before the commercial break, Triple H was in the locker room with Stephanie McMahon. It seemed as though Triple H started off a little… intimidated, to say the least, of Snitsky. But after a pep talk from Stephanie, it seems as though Triple H will be ready for anything Snitsky tries to throw at him.
Styles: Triple H wasn’t scared. Oh no Coach. He is just riled up right now. His wife got kissed by another… disgusting human being! How would you feel if your girl was kissed by another man, Coach? A man like Snitsky.
Coach: What girl, Styles? I fly solo!
”Obsession” hits over the P.A. system as the ever smiling Mickie James runs out from behind the curtain. She poses on the ramp for a second then jogs the rest of the way down to the ring. “LoveFuryPassionEnergy” hits over the P.A. as Lita steps out from behind the curtain. She walks down to the ramp and joins Mickie in the ring.
Styles: And here it is, folks. Last night, Trish Stratus defeated Mickie James to retain her Women’s Championship. Tonight, Mickie teams up with Trish’s arch rival Lita to take on Trish and Ashley Massaro.
”Be Yourself” hits over the P.A. system as Ashley steps out from behind the curtain. She walks half way down the ramp and waits for her tag team partner. “Rock and Roll” hits over the P.A. system as the Women’s Champion steps out from behind the curtain.
Lillian: The following tag team contest is scheduled for one fall. Already in the ring, the team of Mickie James and Lita! And on their way to the ring, Ashley Massaro and Women’s Champion Trish Stratus!
Match 2: Trish Stratus and Ashley Massaro vs. Mickie James and Lita
Trish and Lita start the match off with Trish gaining the upper hand. The two go back and forth for a few minutes until Lita makes the tag to Mickie James. Mickie stares at Trish and blows her a kiss, to which Trish shakes her head. She turns around and tags in Ashley. Ashley gets rocked by Mickie and Mickie takes control of the contest. The ending of the match came when Lita was back in the ring and she was facing off against Trish. She hit Trish with a HUGE DDT and went for the pinfall, but she only got a two count. Lita then tagged Mickie into the match and Mickie waited for Trish to get up. As Trish did, Mickie ran past her and hit a forearm to the face of Ashley. Trish ran at Mickie but Mickie quickly turned around and hit Trish with a MICK KICK and pinned her to get the pinfall!
Coach: Mickie just pinned the Woman’s Champion! Mickie was able to hit Trish WITH HER OWN MOVE and pin her in this tag team contest!
Styles: You have to think that there is some indications in this matchup. Mickie might be in line for another title shot soon! I’m hearing right now that Nick Dinsmore is finally arriving to the building and I think he is on the way to the ring right now!
”Bring ‘Em Out” by TI hits over the P.A. system as Mr. Money in the Bank, Nick Dinsmore, steps out from behind the curtain to a chorus of boo’s. He is wearing a jet black Armani business suit, holding his MITB briefcase to one side and having his bag slung over his left shoulder. Nick Dinsmore smugly walks down to the ring. He steps onto the ring steps and takes off his Ray Ban sunglasses and stares into the crowd. He steps up the last two steps and gets into the ring, where Lillian Garcia has given him a mic. Nick Dinsmore puts his bag down into the middle of the ring and folds his sunglasses up; putting them in his breast pocket. He puts the mic up to his lips and smirks, nodding his head as he soaks up the boo’s from the crowd.
Dinsmore: I bet you all want answers. Don’t you? Is that what you want? You want answers. You want to know why I did what I did, don’t you?
Dinsmore walks over to the turnbuckles, where he turns his back to them and lays against them, almost lounging.
Dinsmore: There is a simple explanation for that, really. I did what I did… I turned my back on all of you fans. I turned my back on everything that I was fighting those two years as Eugene. And you know why I did it?
Dinsmore gets back up to his feet and paces a bit.
Dinsmore: I did it. I did it because I WANTED TO!
With this, Dinsmore smirks and soaks up the boo’s again.
Dinsmore: I was SICK and TIRED of trying to play up to you fans. I was tired of pretending to be something I’m not. You people really think I was some mentally challenged person? Do you REALLY think they’d let someone like that wrestle in the WWE?! Don’t you think that could be a bit… dangerous? Letting some idiot who doesn’t know the difference between a sleeper hold and a power slam… that’d just be messed up. Ya know?
The fans continue booing Nick Dinsmore. He smirks again and rubs his stubble face.
Dinsmore: I was tired of pretending to be what I wasn’t. I was tired of trying to grab the love from all of you fans. The only reason any of you liked me is because you connected with Eugene! Oh yes you did!
Even more boo’s are heard from the crowd.
Lawler: Did Nick Dinsmore just call these people… mentally challenged?
Styles: I think he did, King…
Dinsmore: All of you people here in Chicago… all of you people all over the world. You all had some type of connection to Eugene. And that’s why I had to let go of that persona. I don’t want to associate myself with any of you WWE fans. I don’t want to be known as one of… You. And now, I bet you’re wondering why I went through the whole charade in the first place, huh?
Styles: Uh. YES!
Dinsmore: I did it to be signed by the WWE. The WWE wouldn’t have accepted me as the normal bad ass I am. Oh no. There were too many of the “tough” guy personas at the tryout I was at. I had to sit there and think. What would impress these people? What is the stupidest, most sympathetic type of character I could think of? What was the type of character that would give me the chance to live out my dream? Then I came up with Eugene. I came up with the Eugene character, a loveable mentally challenged idiot. Eugene was meant to be a goof character, just to… get my foot in the door. But once I realized just how much you all fell in love with Eugene, I knew I had it. I had you all eating out of the palm of my hand. I had you all set up to fool you, and that is EXACTLY what I did. I always had every intention of showing my true side; the timing just had to be right. And I was finally able to get into a match that actually meant something, instead of all of these matches that didn’t mean anything. I was finally able to get into the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. And I figured… this is as good as time as any. It’s a perfect time to turn my back on these stupid fans and show them who I really was. And by showing the people who I really was… I got THIS. I got a chance to wrestle for the World Title and I took that chance by the horns. I wrestled the bull to the ground. I low blowed the guy you all LOVE so much, Rob Van Dam. I climbed that 12 foot ladder, raked the eyes of that little Mexican Rey Mysterio to knock him off the ladder and I reached up. I reached up and grabbed the briefcase. I looked down and realized that there was NO ONE in sight. Not a single person. I had beaten every person in that match SO BAD that they were all OUT on the outside of the ring. I knew that moment was my moment, my moment to become who I wanted to be all along. Become who I really am, and that ladies and gentle, is NICK DINSMORE.
Dinsmore holds up the Money in the Bank Briefcase. He smacks it with his hand.
Dinsmore: I got a guaranteed title shot. I got a shot at the World Title. Anytime. Anywhere. And not that I have this briefcase, I can get something off my chest.
Dinsmore sighs a bit and lets out a big smile.
Dinsmore: I don’t give a DAMN about ANY of you! I don’t care about what you people think about me, I never have. I didn’t care if you guys loved the Eugene character or if you hate the person you see infront of you now. None of it matters now. None of you matter. John Layfield, Rey Mysterio, hell, even John Cena. None of you matter. The only two things that do matter are this…. Me and this briefcase. The only things that matter are my guaranteed World Title shot and the man that is going to WIN the World Title when he cashes in the contract… me.
Nick starts to walk towards the ropes but stops himself. He brings the mic back up to his lips.
Dinsmore: Who knows when I’ll cash this baby in. But when I cash it in, I will become the New World Champion. It’s not a matter of when I cash in the MITB briefcase, if I win the World Title… NO. It’s when I cash in the MITB briefcase and WHEN I become the World Champion. I don’t care who the Champion is at the time, it doesn’t matter. I am the best superstar the WWE has to offer. I don’t care if you people don’t agree with me. You’ll agree with me once I win the World Title. If you don’t, hell, I don’t care. What you people think of me doesn’t mean anything to me. I’m the BEST wrestler in the WWE. And let me tell you; when Vince decided to sign me to a WWE contract, it was the BEST decision he has ever made, cuz baby, I’m PURE GOLD! Remember the name ladies and gentleman, ‘cuz soon enough, you’ll be saying it… followed by World Champion. Folks, remember NICK DINSMORE.
”Bring ‘Em Out” hits over the P.A. system as Dinsmore drops the mic in the ring and steps out if it as the scene fades to black.”
The camera fades to commercial break.
The camera comes back from commercial focused on Lillian Garcia in the ring. “Pure Control A” hits over the P.A. system. Ken Doane steps out from behind the curtain, looking ultra focused. He starts to make his way down to the ring.
Lillian: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. On his way to the ring, hailing from Worcester Massachusetts and weighing in tonight at 230 pounds, Ken Doane!
”Slow Chemical” hits over the P.A. system as Kane slowly steps out from behind the curtain.
Lillian: And his opponent, weighing in at 323 pounds, he is one half of the World Tag Team Champions; Kane!
Styles: Ken Doane, the young man, gives up almost 100 pounds to Kane! Kane is also twice his age!
Lawler: Kane is a seasoned veteran here in the WWE. He’ll show up this little punk.
Coach: Hey King. I like this kid. He has a lot of potential! He gives us some new faces so we don’t have to keep seeing you dinosaurs!
Kane makes it to the ring and gets up onto the apron. As soon as he does, Ken Doane charges at him and hits him with a jumping right hand. Kane stumbles a bit and falls into the ring.
Styles: Doane showing no fear in Kane here tonight!
Match 3: Ken Doane vs. Kane
Doane surprisingly takes control of the contest after attacking Kane early and often; showing no fear in the seven footer. He hits Kane with a variety of high-octane offensives moves, keeping Kane grounded for the beginning of the contest. At one point; Doane went for a missile dropkick but Kane sidestepped him and was able to take control of the match. Kane used power moves to keep Doane grounded. The ending of the match came when Kane went for a chokeslam but Doane was able to slip out from the move. He was able to chopblock Kane and bring him to his knees. He hit Kane in the back of the head with a straight kick, making Kane fall onto his stomach. Doane then climbed up to the top rope and hit a legdrop onto the back of Kane’s head. He was finally able to roll Kane over and get the shocking victory over Kane.
Lillian: The winner of the matchup, Ken Doane!
Lawler: I don’t know how he was able to do it, but Ken Doane just defeated Kane!
Coach: I told you so, Lawler. Us young guys are starting to overtake you old farts in the WWE!
Styles: That was an incredible victory for young Ken Doane. The fact that he was able to pin one half of the World Tag Team Champions; say nothing about it being the big red machine, is a huge accomplishment for a young man!
The camera goes backstage to where Trish is in her locker room, toweling off her hair after her shower. The door then suddenly flies open as Trish looks startled at the front door.
Mickie: Hi Trish. I just wanted to say sorry that I had to pin you earlier tonight. I really didn’t want to but Lita just tagged me in and… I don’t know. I just got caught up with being in the ring with you and being so close to you. I just wanted to say sorry and that I love you!
Mickie blows a kiss to Trish and turns on her heel, closing the door behind her as Trish is still staring at the door, shaking her head.
Styles: I don’t know what is going on with that woman! First she tries to take Trish’s title at WrestleMania but gets pinned by Trish. And now she is trying to act all buddy buddy with Trish again? Something seems funny.
Coach: Just ‘cuz you don’t have any friends, Joey, doesn’t mean you can keep everyone in the WWE from having friends. Mickie just sees Trish as a friend…
Lawler: A very good friend, mind you.
Coach: Whatever Jerry. She just sees Trish as a friend and felt bad for pinning her tonight!
The camera fades to commercial.
The camera comes back from commercial in the backstage area. Rosey is seen standing backstage, looking at the monitor. Suddenly, Gregory Helms walks by. He stops and backtracks, stopping right behind Rosey. Rosey turns around and Helms looks up at him. Helms lifts his nose up to Rosey a bit, snorting.
Helms: Rosey. I see you’re still SHIT.
Helms smirks to himself and walks away, laughing. Rosey stands and glares at Helms as he walks away.
Lawler: Why was that NOT edited out?!
Styles: You don’t remember, King? Rosey use to be S.H.I.T. Super Hero in Training!
Coach: I know you’re old Lawler but you have to remember this stuff!
Lawler: Who could forget that…
”Bring ‘Em Out” by TI hits over the P.A. as Mr. Money in the Bank steps out from behind the curtain to a chorus of boos; the fans remembering the Chicago comments he made earlier.
Lawler: This young man right here REALLY turned heads last night. He decided to change his “scenery” or so he says and go by his actual name, Nick Dinsmore. And by going by his actual name, he always has a new attitude.
Coach: Yes he does, Jerry. And I like it! Nick Dinsmore is done trying to impress the fans and he’s just showing the world that he is the best wrestler in the WWE.
Lillian: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, hailing from Louisville, Kentucky and weighing in at 226 pounds, he is Mr. Money in the Bank; Nick Dinsmore!
Dinsmore walks down the ramp the rest of the way. He slides into the ring and stands up on the turnbuckles, hoisting his Money in the Bank Briefcase high over his head.
”Big” hits over the P.A. system as Big Show steps out from behind the curtain with his World Tag Team Championship slung over his shoulder. He smiles for the crowd as he starts to make his way down.
Lillian: And his opponent, weighing in at over 500 pounds; he is one half of the World Tag Team Champions, The Big Show!
Big Show steps over the top rope. Like in the last match; Dinsmore runs at Big Show. However, since the bell hasn’t rung yet, Dinsmore whacks Big Show over the head with the MITB Briefcase. Big Show gets rocked a bit and falls to the mat down below, holding his head. Dinsmore quickly gets out of the ring and goes under it. He grabs a steel chair from under the ring and starts to bash Big Show in the back with it. Dinsmore looks like a man possessed as he keeps slamming Big Show in the back with the chair. Big Show tries to block the shots but Dinsmore keeps hitting him. Big Show tries to roll out of the way but Dinsmore keeps hitting him, hitting Big Show in the face with the chair! Dinsmore throws the chair away and works on getting Big Show to his feet, which he eventually does. He rolls Show into the ring with a big smirk on his face.
Styles: What the hell was that?! Dinsmore attacked Big Show before the match even started! Why would he do that?!
Coach: He was showing his dominance, Joey. He was showing that he doesn’t care about anyone or anything. He was showing that he belongs in the WWE. And what better way to show it than take out one of the biggest superstars in the WWE?!
Lawler: You may be right, Coach. Dinsmore is doing this as a statement…
Match 4: Big Show vs. Nick Dinsmore
Disnmore keeps control of the match through the entire thing, not letting Big Show catch his breath. He dominates Big Show after the assault he laid on him before the match. Dinsmore is finally able to put Big Show away with his fourth Random Act of Violence (Jumping off the top rope and landing both feet into the chest of his opponent. Think Low Ki), to pick up the pinfall.
Lillian: The winner of the match, Nick Dinsmore!
Coach: Statement win right there. Dinsmore is out to prove himself and I’ll say; he did a damn good job here tonight.
Lawler: That finishing move… just looks painful. Jumping off the top rope and driving all your weight into your opponent’s chest. It could break bones!
Dinsmore grabs his now dented briefcase and looks at it. He smirks and pats it a few times, climbing the turnbuckles and holding it high above his head as the camera fades to commercial.
The camera comes back from commercial with “Cool” playing over the P.A. system. Carlito steps out from behind the curtain, flanked by Chris Masters. Carlito has a red apple in his hand as he takes a bit out of it and chucks the rest of it into the crowd. Carlito starts to walk down the ramp.
Lillian: The following contest is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, accompanied by Chris Masters, hailing from The Caribbean and weighing in at 230 pounds, Carlito!
Carlito eats the rest of his apple and walks down to the ring. He slides into the ring under the bottom rope and waits. “One of a King” hits over the P.A. as Rob Van Dam steps out from behind the curtain. Van Dam looks to be all business tonight.
Styles: It looks like RVD is still fuming after losing the Money in the Bank Ladder Match last night.
Lillian Garcia: And his opponent, hailing from Battlecreek, Michigan and weighing in at 237 pounds, Rob Van Dam!
Van Dam still looks all business. He rolls into the ring and gets on the middle turnbuckle, doing his thumb taunt.
Match 5: Carlito vs. Rob Van Dam
The match started off quick paced as you’d expect with two wrestlers like this. Carlito started off with the advantage after RVD went for a Rolling Thunder early in the matchup, showing his aggression. Carlito was able to get his knees up and RVD landed on them. Carlito was able to gain control, keeping Van Dam grounded so he couldn’t use his legs to gain an advantage. Van Dam was able to mount a comeback, hitting a spinning heel kick to Carlito out of nowhere. Van Dam kept the advantage until Chris Masters got involved and tripped up RVD as he was going for another Rolling Thunder. RVD turned around and Carlito was able to roll him up but only got a two count. The ending of the match came when Carlito hit RVD with a Backstabber. He went for the cover but RVD was able to get a foot on the bottom rope. Carlito got up to argue with the ref and Masters went for an attack on RVD, but RVD punched Masters straight in the face, knocking him down. Carlito turned around into a spinning heel kick to Carlito and he was quickly able to ascend the turnbuckle and hit the Frog Splash to pick up the win.
Lillian: The winner of the matchup, Rob Van Dam!
Rob Van Dam gets up and still looks bitter about the loss last night. He rolls out of the ring and quickly walks up the ramp. The camera quickly shoots backstage, to where Ric Flair is seen in his locker room. He has a beautiful young lady on each side of him, all three drinking champagne from very expensive looking glasses. Flair has the Intercontinental Championship draped across his lap, to which the ladies are stroking slightly. Flair has a big SEG on his face as he sips his champagne. There is a knock on the door. Flair yells for the person to come in, and in comes Todd Grisham with a microphone.
Grisham: Sorry to interrupt all this, Ric, but I was wondering if I could ask you some questions.
Ric: WOO! Go ahead Todd, tonight nothing can bring me down. Ask away!
Grisham: Alright Ric. Well last night you took back the Intercontinental Championship from Shelton Benjamin, in a match where you teamed with World tag Team Champions Big Show and Kane. How was that?
Ric: Woo Todd! That was a real fun match. I had a great time teaming with Kane and Big Show, WOO! Shelton took the Intercontinental Championship from me at the Royal Rumble, but WOO, I took it back on the GRANDEST STAGE OF THEM ALL, WOOO! Shelton lost that very same Intercontinental Championship to me!
Todd: He sure did, Ric. Next week, GM Eric Bischoff has made a match for the number one contendership for your Intercontinental Championship. What are your thoughts?
Ric: Todd, it doesn’t matter to me who wins that match next week. I am going to walk into Backlash the same way as I am going to walk out of Backlash, WOO!
With that, Flair stands up and walks over to Grisham. He nudges Grisham a bit towards the door and sits back down on the couch with the two beautiful ladies as the camera comes back to the announce table.
Lawler: It looks like Ric Flair is still celebrating from last night!
Coach: Ric Flair did look tired, it would seem like he’s been partying all night!
Styles: And the announcement by Bischoff that a match will happen next week where the winner will face Ric Flair at Backlash for the Intercontinental Championship! That’s going to be huge!
The camera fades to commercial
The camera comes back to commercial to see Lillian Garcia standing in the ring with a mic in hand.
Lillian: The following contest is scheduled for one fall.
”Unglued” hits over the P.A. system as the fans in attendance all boo.
Coach: And here comes a monster of a man, Gene Snitsky!
Styles: Last night, he took Triple H to the limit at WrestleMania and almost picked up the victory over Triple H quite a few times!
Lawler: That he did, Joey. He came close to defeating Triple H last night, but his actions leading up to that match and during that match were… odd. He got an attraction to Stephanie McMahon and has started to stalk her…
Lillian: On his way to the ring, hailing from Nesquehoning, Pennsylvania and weighing in at 286 pounds, Gene Snitsky!
Snitsky walks confidently down to the ring. He gets up onto the apron and steps over the top rope and gets into the ring. “Sexy Boy” hits over the P.A. system as the fans in attendance all get in their feet, cheering. Shawn Michaels steps out from behind the curtain to a thunderous ovation.
Styles: And last night, Shawn Michaels and Randy Orton put on a classic match, with one of the best finishing of the matches you’ll ever see! Michaels went for the elbow drop off the top rope, but Orton hit an RKO on Michaels in MID-AIR!
Coach: The right man won that match, though!
Lillian: And his opponent, hailing from San Antonio, Texas and weighing in at 225 pounds, Shawn Michaels!
Michaels walks the rest of the way down to the ring and slides in.
Match 6: Shawn Michaels vs. Gene Snitsky
Snitsky instantly goes for Michaels, clubbing him as soon as Michaels makes it into the ring. Snitsky takes control of the contest for a lot of the match after using the beat down as soon as Michaels got in the ring. Michaels was able to retake control on a missed big boot from Snitsky, hitting a Sweet Chin Music on Snitsky but only getting a two count. Suddenly, “Burn In My Light” hits over the P.A. system as Randy Orton runs out from behind the curtain. Michaels left the ring to confront Orton as the ref went out of the ring to stop Orton. Triple H jumped out from the crowd and attacked Snitsky and the two battled in the ring until Snitsky clotheslined Triple H over the top rope and down to the floor outside. The two continued battling until SNITSKY POWERBOMBED TRIPLE H THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE! Snitsky then ran over to the other side of the ring and hit him with a HUGE big boot. Snitsky then rolled Michaels back into the ring and lifted him up, hitting him with a sitdown powerbomb and pinning Michaels to pick up the win.
Lillian: The winner of the matchup, Gene Snitsky!
Styles: TRIPLE H HAS JUST BEEN POWERBOMBED THROUGH OUR ANNOUNCE TABLE! We need some medics out here!
Coach: Not only that, but Shawn Michaels just LOST to Gene Snitsky here on Monday Night Raw!
Lawler: And Randy Orton, Smackdown’s Randy Orton, came out here and distracted Shawn Michaels and made him lose!
Coach: Don’t blame the loss on Randy Orton, King! Michaels got outwrestled tonight and LOST to Gene Snitsky!
The camera fades to black as the camera shows Triple H in a heap, trying to get to his feet after getting powerbombed through the announce table by Gene Snitsky.
Okay, not the best show ever, but it's been forever since I've written a show.
Be gentle please. Any comments are much appreciated!
