Love the idea! The draft sounds like it will be pretty epic. You have the WWE roster, but having them all start as free-agents and have like a brand extension draft from '02. Love the idea. Can't wait to see where you go with this, and I will definitely keep an eye on this league. I wish you the best of luck, and I can't wait to check it out.

Michael Cole: Welcome to Monday Night Raw. My name is Michael Cole and tonight we have been told that the WWE will be partaking in some massive changes I am so excited. Alongside me is my broadcast colleagues Matt Striker and Jerry Lawler. Now gentlemen, we have been told this will be a momentous night for the WWE I can’t wait for what we have coming for us later tonight.

Jerry Lawler: That’s right folks, tonight is going to be amazing, our first four hour edition, we will be having every person in the roster competing for a title this is going to be awesome as well as the draft where everyone is a free agent and anyone could end up anywhere.

Matt Striker: That’s right; tonight all the championships will be defended in inter brand elimination matches. We will have WWE Champion the Miz will be defending his title against Sheamus, Kane, The Big Show, Rey Mysterio and a yet to be determined superstar.

Michael Cole: We will also be having the newly crowned World Heavyweight Champion, Edge defending his title against Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton, John Cena, Wade Barrett and another superstar who is yet to be announced.

Jerry Lawler: The Intercontinental Champion Dolph Ziggler will be facing Kofi Kingston, Drew McIntyre, John Morrison, Zack Ryder and CM Punk, who will be involved in his first match since returning from injury, in a falls count anywhere match with the first person to gain a pin or a submission to win the title.

Matt Striker: Also tonight the United States Champion, Daniel Bryan, will face Jack Swagger, Cody Rhodes, R Truth, Ted Di Biase and Christian, who will be coming back early from a torn pectoral muscle just to compete in this match.

Michael Cole: Well let’s get started with the Chairman of the Board, Vince McMahon, who will make a few key announcements regarding tonight’s Raw as well as what is in store for the future of the WWE.
We go to the stage area where Mr. McMahon walks out carrying two suitcases and large folder. He goes stands behind the middle podium where one podium on each side says Raw and the other Smackdown.

Mr McMahon: Welcome everyone to 2011. The WWE will be experiencing a lot of changes in and around the office. First off on the business side of things, the Etihad Group came up to the WWE and offered a multimillion dollar offer to the company. There was only one condition to the terms of this offer and well let’s get it straight out of the way and let’s confirm the deal. Teddy Long get out here I have something.

Teddy Long made his way out from the back and shook Vince McMahon’s hand and stood behind the Smackdown podium.

Mr McMahon: Now Mr. Long I don’t want you to say anything and just listen. As part of this new deal with the Etihad group they placed one specific condition on the deal. Oh well what the hell, Teddy Long, YOURRRRRRRRRRRRRR’E FFFFFFFFFFFFFFIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRRRRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEDDDDDDDDDDDDD. Now security, get this man out of the building I never want to see your face again.

The crowd booed Mr. McMahon as Teddy Long was dragged away by the security as we head to a commercial.

*****************COMMERCIAL BREAK***************

Mr McMahon: Ok now with this extra influx of money, we have been able to sign a few of the top independent talents as well as bring back a few of our other former superstars, now let me introduce you to them. First off the returning superstars. This man was in the WWE from 2002 – 2006 and worked closely with the likes of Christian and Chris Jericho he is Tyson Tomko.

The crowd cheers as Tomko makes his way onto the stage, shakes hands with Mr. McMahon and stands on the other side of the stage.

Mr. McMahon: Next up we have another former of the WWE roster where he was with us from 2005 until earlier last year. Although never winning a title in his first tenure he will have a chance this time. Please welcome back to the WWE, Paul Burchill.

Paul Burchill walks out onto the stage and ignores Mr. McMahon and just goes over and stands next to Tomko. This leads to a chorus of boos for Burchill.

Mr. McMahon: Ok so the next person that will be introduced back into the WWE roster is former three time tag team champion as well as a cruiserweight champion he is Paul London.

Paul London runs down the ramp and back to the top of the stage again which is where he shakes hands with Burchill, Tomko and McMahon as the crowd roar.

Mr. McMahon: Ok welcome back Paul, so next up we have the former two time tag team champions one of them has one an additional tag team title whilst the other is a three time Intercontinental Champion and one time United States Champion they are the World’s Greatest Tag Team, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin.

The two men step out onto the stage area and go to opposite ends of the stage and celebrate with each other and the fans.

Mr. McMahon: We now have the former two time United States Champion and one time Tag Team Champion, he only left us one month ago but now he is back he is Montel Vontavious Porter, MVP.

MVP runs out to the crowd and gets a chorus of celebrations as he does his balling motion.

Mr. McMahon: And the final man who returns to the WWE is the former longest reigning champion in Smackdown History, he is a five time singles champion and a former two time tag team champion, please welcome back Gregory Helms.

Gregory Helms walks out and gets in the face of Paul London which leads to series of boos from the audience.

Mr. McMahon: Now it’s on to the newest members of the WWE roster and there are six of them. Please let me introduce you to them first he has held 35 different titles worldwide it’s time for you to meet Daniel Christiansen

Christiansen comes out to the arena and once the crowd recognise who it is they start cheering “Daniels, Daniels, Daniels”. Christiansen grabs hold of a mic.

Christiansen: No guys, its Christiansen no more of that rubbish fresh name means, fresh start which means fresh goals and fresh targets.

Mr. McMahon: Thank you Christiansen, I hope you can achieve these fresh goals and targets here in the WWE. Now our next new star comes to us from Atlanta, Georgia and has held twelve titles across the United States he is James Richards.

Richards appears on the stage and comes out to a mixed reaction as he joins the line of new superstars on the stage.

Mr. McMahon: Only a few more left guys and here is another one this man is a high flyer and knows no end he has won eleven titles across the globe he is Ben Jacobson.

Jacobson comes out on the stage wearing dark glasses and a long trench coat. No one seems to be sure on who it is. He grabs hold of a mic.

Jacobson: Later on tonight you will find out the true identity of the man that will be taking the WWE to the next level. I am the missing piece for which the WWE has longed for.

Mr McMahon: Well there we have Ben Jacobson, now the next man I’d like to introduce to the WWE audience has been around the wrestling business for over 15 years and he has finally made his way to the WWE. Please welcome one of the best tag team wrestlers in this industry, Jorge Sanchez.

Sanchez comes out onto the stage and the crowd pop for his appearance. He stares down the line of superstars that are on the stage with him and appears as though he is giving them a long hard look.

Mr. McMahon: The second last superstar to make his debut here tonight in the WWE. This man comes from Canada and winning numerous awards and championships in his short time in the ring professionally please welcome Ryan Kelly.

Kelly strolls out onto the stage not taking any notice to anyone else around him and just joins the queue of superstars.

Mr. McMahon: Now the final person I would like to introduce to the WWE Universe would be one of the biggest coups in the WWE’s history. When I heard that this man was coming off contract at the start of December last year. Once I heard this I told Jim Ross to through the cheque book at him and sign him no matter what. He holds multiple records around the globe and has gone undefeated for long periods of time. Please welcome Joe Afoe to the WWE Universe.

Joe appears on the stage and wanders around with an angry look on his face. A Samoa Joe chant starts around the arena as Joe joins the queue.

Mr. McMahon: Please help me in welcoming these thirteen men into the WWE locker room. In order for these thirteen men to get settled in they will not be competing tonight but they will still be eligible to be drafted to either Raw or Smackdown. Now that was only the second major announcement and I think it’s time for a break.

*****************COMMERCIAL BREAK***************

Mr. McMahon: With all these new superstars I think that means that we will need some championships to be reinstated. So let me bring back the WWE Hardcore Championship and the WWE Cruiserweight Championship.

The crowd cheers at the site of the old Hardcore and Cruiserweight titles.

Mr. McMahon: Before we get this draft started I think this little Anonymous General Manager has run its course I think it’s time to reveal who you really are; it’s time to step out from behind the computer and come out here on the stage.

The music hits and its Lex Luger.

Mr. McMahon: Let me please introduce to you the Raw General Manager, Lex Luger. Now Lex, you’ve been in charge of Raw for the past 8 months and have had to make some major decisions whilst in charge and you have dealt with the Nexus as well as many other things. I say that you have done a great job.

Lex Luger: Why thanks Vince, I must say that while I was in my home in Atlanta, watching Raw sending emails to Cole it got me thinking about the best way to reveal to everyone as to who I was and what better then the first Raw of the year and by kicking the year off with a four hour edition and holding the draft it is going to be amazing.

Mr. McMahon: You have done great work for this company and this year we are going to be shaking things up in more than one way. At every pay per view there will be at least one inter branded match where the winner will score a point for their brand. At the end of the year we will tally up the scores and the loosing GM will be fired.

Lex Luger: Sound’s like a good competition Vince, I mean Mr. McMahon, but who is in charge of Smackdown now that you fired Teddy Long.

Mr. McMahon: Ah thanks for reminding me of that. Let me introduce to you the new General Manager of Smackdown. SSSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGG.

The crowd go wild as Sting appears on the stage holding his signature baseball bat. Sting goes and stands behind the Smackdown podium as they set up for the draft to begin.

*****************COMMERCIAL BREAK***************

Mr. McMahon: Ok, so the way that this will work is that we will have four rounds of five picks each of male superstars then we will have one final round where you will pick six divas. All remaining superstars and divas will be placed in a supplementary draft. Everyone fine with the rules.

Luger and Sting shake their heads and get ready.

Mr. McMahon: Ok because you Lex have been in charge for the longest you will get first choice in the draft.

Lex Luger: Ok with my first pick in the draft I decide to pick the current World Heavyweight Champion, Edge.

Edge comes out from the back and goes over to Lex Luger and signs his contract to Raw.

Mr. McMahon: Nice pick Lex, now it’s your turn Sting.

Sting: Ok well this man has been on the shelf since April last year after being taken out by Sheamus. Let me introduce the King of Kings, the Cerebral Assassin, the Game, Triple H.

Triple H comes out on stage and the crowd give a massive reaction.

Sting: Oh and also for the Game’s comeback match he will be competing in the WWE Championship match tonight.

Lex Luger: For my second draft pick I choose the Dead Man, The Undertaker and since Sting put his returning superstar in the WWE Title match, I’m putting the Undertaker in the World Heavyweight Championship match later on tonight.

Sting: Fair enough then. Well my second pick is for Rey Mysterio.

Lex Luger: Ooooo tough break Sting looks like you forgot about the Doctor, the Doctor of Thuganomics, John Cena.

Sting: That’s alright; I choose the Celtic Warrior, Sheamus as my third round pick.

Lex Luger: Nice reunite the feud between Sheamus and Triple H, smart move Sting. Well for my fourth pick I choose the Viper, Randy Orton.

Sting: I think I’ll do you a favour Lex and that’s hire someone that you couldn’t keep under control whilst you were in charge of Raw. NXT Season 1 winner, Wade Barrett.

Lex Luger: Ok for my final pick for the first round I’m surprised that he hasn’t been drafted yet but I choose the Awesome One, The WWE Champion, The Miz.

Sting: That’s alright Lex my brand will win back at least one of those championships. For my last pick of the first round I choose the Straight Edge Superstar, C.M. Punk.

Mr. McMahon: Well done GM’s the first round is done. Now after the break we will be having our first match of the night. It will be a Six Man Fall’s Count Anywhere Match for the Intercontinental Championship.

*****************COMMERCIAL BREAK***************

Justin Roberts: The following contest is scheduled for one fall and is a six man Falls Count Anywhere Match for the Intercontinental Championship. Introducing first the challengers, firstly, from Ghana, West Africa, weighing in at 221 pounds Kofi Kingston.

Justin Roberts: Introducing next, from Ayr, Scotland, weighing in at 250 pounds he is the Chosen One, Drew McIntyre.

Justin Roberts: Introducing the next challenger, from Los Angeles, California weighing in at 223 pounds, The Shaman of Sexy, John Morrison.

Justin Roberts: The next challenger, from Chicago, Illinois, weighing in at 222 pounds he is the Straight Edged Superstar, C.M. Punk.

Justin Roberts: And the final challenger, from Long Island, New York, weighing in at 214 pounds, Zack Ryder.

Justin Roberts: And finally the champion, he is from Hollywood, Florida, weighing in at 221 pounds, he is the Intercontinental Champion, Dolph Ziggler.

The bell rings to start the match. Zach Ryder starts the match off by attacking CM Punk but Punk is able to fight him off and throws him to the outside. Morrison meanwhile kicks Ziggler in the stomach and starts to pound the back of him forcing him into the corner. Kofi helps Morrison out in the corner pounding away at Ziggler. McIntyre rolls out of the ring and is looking under the ring for a weapon but can’t seem to find anything. Punk is chasing Ryder around the ring with a kendo stick as Ryder tries to escape. As they get close to McIntyre, who has stopped looking under the ring, he strikes Punk over the head with a garbage can lid. Ryder is looking for a high five when McIntyre cracks Ryder over the head with garbage can as well. McIntyre goes for the pin on Ryder. 1.........2........ Morrison realises the pin and flings himself over the top rope to the mate landing on top of McIntyre and breaking up the pin in the process. Ziggler has now turned it around on Kingston and is going after him now in the corner. Ziggler whips Kingston across the ring bouncing off the ropes. Kingston avoids the clothesline from Ziggler and hits a high elbow to the face of Ziggler.

*****************COMMERCIAL BREAK***************

We are back from the break and Morrison and Punk are going at one another on the outside. Punk whips Morrison towards the guard rail but Morrison is able to jump up onto the rail and hits a moonsault onto Punk. Ryder rolls back into the ring he is met by a flurry of kicks by Dolph Ziggler whilst Ryder is on the mat. Kingston and McIntyre continue to come to blows with one another with McIntyre clotheslining Kingston over the top rope sending him to the outside. McIntyre follows him out and looks to hit the Future Shock DDT on him but Kingston manages to push McIntyre into the stairs and flicks him over the top of them. Kingston jumps on to the top of the stairs and hits the Boom Drop onto Drew McIntyre. Kingston goes for the cover on the outside with no one around. 1.........2........ Ziggler realised that he couldn’t break up the pin fall so elbow dropped the ref who was still in the ring making the count. The referee rolled out of the ring and looked knocked out. CM Punk and John Morrison continued to go at it on the outside after they both got up. Ziggler looked around the ring and saw a prone Ryder stand up slowly. Ziggler locked in the Sleeper Hold on Ryder. It was in for a few seconds and it looked like Ryder was out but there was no referee to check it out. Kingston saw this happening in the ring and climbed the turnbuckle from the outside and hits a flying dropkick onto the back of Ziggler sending both Ryder and Ziggler rolling to the outside. Another referee comes running down the ramp and intervenes in the match taking back control. Kingston grabs a ladder from underneath the ring and sets it up on the outside. Kingston starts to climb up the ladder looking over the prone bodies that lie below of Ziggler and Ryder. Kingston climbs all the way to the top but while he is there he is met on the other side by CM Punk who has also climbed the ladder. Punk starts to attack Kingston from behind and manages to put him on his shoulders and looks to hit the GTS. Punk hits the GTS on Kingston which sends him flying off the ladder through the announcers table. Punk jumps off the ladder and attacks Ziggler and Ryder but Ryder manages to hits the Rough Ryder on Ziggler. Ryder spins around and is met by a super kick from John Morrison. McIntyre manages to scamper back around the ring and Future Shock on the falling Zach Ryder. Morrison notices the fallen Kingston and goes for the pin on him. The initial referee has noticed this and starts to crawl over to make the count. Meanwhile CM Punk has hit the GTS on Drew McIntyre and goes to lock in the Anaconda Vise as well. The second ref is paying attention to this. Morrison gets the 1 on Kingston followed by the 2 and as the hand comes down for three McIntyre taps out. Both referees signal for the end of the match. As this happens they both conference with one another and they decide to announce duel winners.

Winners and New Intercontinental Champions: CM Punk and John Morrison (14:58)

Hey man, as i promised, I would be checking in on this league. A few things

Some of the poeple that you had return weren't really important nor Main Event calibar superstars. It is your choice, but it wasn't really needed to put it on tv, as you could of done like a supplementary draft or something but that really is your choice

Also, the free agents, I don't really know half of them because I am not really an independent follower. But, again it seems that you have taken a liking to them and want them on your roster which is cool, but for some people that are reading this, they might not know who they are so your really gonna have to push their gimmick and give them orginality.

Lex Luger and Sting being the GM's was a unique choice as they both are huge WCW stars. I'm not really sure where you are going with this, but there are many options on it, and It will be cool to see which one you pick to go with.

Now as for the draft, I have some difference I would have gone with. 1st of all since you already announced who is in each title match before even knowing who is on what roster, it would be likely that the GM's would pick the people in the matches before people like Cm Punk got picked since he was in the I.C. match. So to fit storylines more, it probably would of been more appopriate to have people like Kane get picked and Alberto Del Rio since they are in World TItle matches later that night. As for round 2, you might already have your draft picks ready 2 go. But it would fit with storylines if people in the World Title matches get picked first, then people in the second-tier title matches, and then people who aren't in either matches like Christian and so on. But it would fit well with the storylines that those ppl get 1st.

Something I also suggest is at the bottom, have something more clear like the draft update in order, like if you wanted to check my league how I did it at the end of the 1st Raw. And maybe not center so must like people talking, it is kind of harder to understand it. The different colors for each announcer is unique, and could be a good thing for you to keep if you like it. But this could also be limited.

Bottom Line: This league looks great and I'm always a fan of drafts especially with WWE. The roster is so big, and good you have so many options. Can't wait til the follow up of this. Goodluck!

Raw 3rd January 2011 Part 2

Justin Roberts: Here are your winners and the new co WWE Intercontinental Champions, CM Punk and John Morrison.

Matt Striker: Did I just here that correctly, we have co Intercontinental Champions?

Jerry Lawler: I think that is what Justin Roberts just said I wonder what that means.

Michael Cole: I’m not so sure we know that CM Punk will he headed to Smackdown this Friday after being picked up Sting as his number five draft pick which is sure to create some form of controversy with that as well. Big Show, Kane and Alberto Del Rio are in the world title matches yet not one has been picked, whilst CM Punk was picked but not in the World Title matches.

Jerry Lawler: Maybe Sting is playing favourites?

Matt Striker: Maybe, or could have been smart and had faith that CM Punk was going to win the match and bring the title to Smackdown.

Michael Cole: I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

Jerry Lawler: Well let’s recap what Vince McMahon has just done and let everyone know what is happening.

Matt Striker: First off the WWE has signed a multimillion dollar sponsorship contract with the Etihad Group.

Michael Cole: That’s right Matt, but they had one condition before signing the contract. That was to fire Smackdown General Manager, Teddy Long, and bring in someone new.

Jerry Lawler: I wonder if it was their idea to hire Sting or if Vince had already sorted that out for himself.

Matt Striker: That’s true.

Michael Cole: We also welcomed in 13 superstars to the WWE roster names like MVP, Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas return whilst new faces Daniel Christiansen and Joe Afoe amongst others look to establish themselves in the WWE.

Jerry Lawler: And that’s not all Vince brought back the Hardcore and Cruiserweight Titles which will also be put up for grabs later tonight.

Matt Striker: The Anonymous Raw General Manager revealed himself to us tonight and it was Lex Luger, the WCW legend.

Michael Cole: That means we have two WCW legends and friends as the two general managers of the WWE.

Matt Striker: Vince also introduced the General Manager Challenge were the loser will be fired at the end of the year.

Jerry Lawler: That’s right at every PPV we will have at least one interpromotional match where the winning brand gets a point for the general manager, this should be interesting.

Michael Cole: Plus we have had the draft, which will continue on shortly, and with both brands picking up 5 superstars each so far we’re in for a stellar year.

Jerry Lawler: Luger, from Raw, picked up Edge, the Undertaker, John Cena, Randy Orton and the Miz.

Matt Striker: Whilst Sting picked up Triple H, Rey Mysterio, Sheamus, Wade Barrett and CM Punk.

Michael Cole: That means that so far Raw has both the World Heavyweight and WWE Champions, for now.

Jerry Lawler: That’s right Cole, for now, what a night we have install for you tonight.

*****************COMMERCIAL BREAK***************

We are in the backstage are with the Nexus.

Wade Barrett: Tonight could be the last night that the Nexus are together as one. Just remember that if we are drafted apart and can’t stay together that you don’t forget who took you to the top and got you you’re contract. I am the leader of the Nexus and always will be, don’t forget that.

Justin Gabriel stands up to Wade Barrett

Justin Gabriel: You know that I respect you Wade for everything that you have done for us and I’m sure all the rest of us feel the same way. But I don’t see how you can think that the rest of us will be nowhere without you. David and I both got to the last stage of NXT just like you. Just cause you won doesn’t mean that the rest of us have no opinions and can’t do anything for ourselves. You know what Wade I’m getting out of the Nexus and going out on my own. I don’t need you or your henchmen watching my back.

Wade Barrett: How dare you, I made you and if you leave us there will be no holding back. The Nexus will see you as an enemy.

Justin Gabriel: I don’t care what you say Wade the Nexus and I are through.

Gabriel walks out of the locker room and heads off down the corridor.

We go back to the stage for the next part of the Draft.

Mr. McMahon: Ok now it’s time to continue the draft. Since Lex went first in the opening round, Sting will have the first pick this time.

Sting: Well I choose the former World Heavyweight Champion, the Big Red Machine Kane.

Lex Luger: You can have one giant I’ll pick the World’s Largest Athlete, The Big Show.

Sting: That leaves one man left who is in the World Title matches, so I pick Alberto Del Rio.

Lex Luger: Fair enough, since making his debut in the middle of last year I have been impressed by this man, he is the United States Champion, Daniel Bryan.

Sting: I pick the man who just won the Intercontinental Championship, John Morrison.

Lex Luger: Well I guess that means I’ll pick Dolph Ziggler.

Sting: I’ll make Mr. McMahon happy with this pick. The Chosen One, Drew McIntyre is my ninth pick in the draft.

Lex Luger: Although he didn’t pick up the win in our earlier match I was impressed by Kofi Kingston, so I will make him a member of Raw.

Sting: For my last pick of this round, I decide to pick the newest member of the WWE roster, I have worked with him in the past and I am talking about Joe Afoe.

Lex Luger: For my last pick we will see him in action later tonight, Christian.

Mr. McMahon: That draws a close to the end of the latest round of draft picks. After the break we will be having a ladder match to determine the new Cruiserweight Champion.

*****************COMMERCIAL BREAK***************

The bell rings to start the match with everyone eyeing each other off. Jackson Andrews is in the ring as well as the six smaller men look at him. Tyson tells Andrews to attack his opponents whilst Tyson rolls out of the ring and grabs a hold of one of the ladders on the outside. Andrews gives a short arm clothesline to Tatsu. Chavo tries to take out the legs of Andrews but Andrews just kicks him off out of the ring. Kaval bounces off the ropes and tries to hit a dropkick on Andrews but he just swats him away. Rollins and Woods try to double team him but Andrews manages to give them a double suplex. Meanwhile Tyson Kidd has set up the ladder in the middle of the ring right underneath the title hanging high above the ring. Andrews picks up Kaval throwing him into the air and catching him in a Samoan Drop. Tyson starts to climb it and yells at Andrews to go after Chavo who is getting back into the middle of the ring. Andrews does what he is told and drags Chavo out of the ring to the outside following him out. Tyson manages to get to the top of the ladder with his hands on the gold. Tatsu regains his composure and climbs up the ladder to stop Tyson from retrieving the gold. Tatsu manages to take control of Kidd and hits a jumping roundhouse kick off the ladder sending them both to the mat crashing. Andrews notices this and rolls into the ring and attacks Tatsu. Woods and Rollins regain their composure pick up the ladder and smash the ladder into the back of Andrews sending him to the outside. Rollins and Woods drop the ladder and turn on each other. Rollins sends Woods across the ring but Woods comes back with dropkick. Rollins gets up and hits an arm drag on Woods. Chavo comes back in the ring and hits Rollins in the back of the head knocking him down to the mat. Woods gets up and hits an arm drag on Chavo. Tatsu comes and punches Woods in the face as well as dropkicking him over the top rope. Tatsu grabs the ladder and sets it up in the middle of the ring. He starts to climb it as Kaval starts as well. Kaval and Tatsu fight each other at the top of the ladder. Kaval gains the advantage and rolls over the top off the ladder and hits a power bomb. Kaval manages to get back up and starts to climb back up the ladder. The title is in reach but in doing so Rollins has picked up another ladder and leans it against the other ladder. Rollins bounces off the ropes and runs up the leaning ladder clotheslining Kaval off the ladder he is going so fast that he mistimes his jump and lands on the top of the ropes falling to the outside. Tyson Kidd gets up after a while and suplexes Chavo onto the ladder causing Chavo to scream in pain. Woods rolls back into the ring with a third ladder in hand. He looks to hit Tyson Kidd with it as he turns around and manages to do so. Woods has cleared the ring and set up the ladder and started climbing. Woods is so close now from grabbing the gold. Jackson Andrews grabs a hold of the back Woods’ tights pulling him off the ladder. Andrews sets Woods up for a power bomb and slams him into the ladder on the mat. All six men are down with only Jackson Andrews left standing in the ring. He picks up Tyson Kidd and places him on his shoulders as he climbs the original ladder that is set up. Andrews is pushing himself up the ladder as Tyson Kidd gets closer to the title. Kidd manages to reach out and grab the title unstrapping it and pulling down the gold.

Winner: Tyson Kidd – New WWE Cruiserweight Champion (11:36)

Michael Cole: Tyson Kidd has just won his first singles championship in the WWE. Congratulations Tyson Kidd.

Jerry Lawler: Geez, Tyson had a lot of help from Jackson Andrews out there tonight I don’t know if he would have won without his help.

Matt Striker: Yes, Jackson Andrews was a big help for Kidd out there tonight. Well that just shows you that Tyson made the right decision in getting rid of David Hart Smith a few months back.

Michael Cole: Now let’s head back up to the stage for the next part of the draft.

Mr McMahon: Round three of the draft will be coming up right now. It is Lex’s turn to make his pick.

Raw Part 1 & 2 Feedback

I don't like Mr. McMahon announcing a partnership with Edihad Group, he could have said that he was going to shake up the WWE with a draft where everybody will be drafted. Them superstars aren't needed to be announced in the show, Paul London, MVP that is. Glad London is here :) I don't like Teddy being fired but interesting with Lex and Sting as GMS, WCW guys. The name changes ain't that special, Christopher Daniels could have been called Daniel Christopher in my opinion and Samoa Joe could be like oh I don't know just Nuffolau Seanona or Joel Seanona. Other indy guys I am just familiar with Homicide who is BILLED as a mexican when puerto rican. The draft back and forth like in 2002, the first draft, I like that style better, it is very interesting.

CM Punk and John Morrison being Intercontinental Champions is great, glad you are having them feud, they work very excellent together and I just love them feuding, hell even Tag Teaming but feuding is the best thing ever, them being on Smackdown, I just love, establish a feud between them and for the Intercontinental Championship! That is just awesome.

Justin Gabriel face turn against Wade Barrett and Nexus is great, glad he is making a name for himself already turning on the Nexus, you make very good decisions and him pointing out what happened in NXT Season 1, him and Otunga being the ones who were with him in the finals, I am expecting if Otunga isn't drafted, he breaks up with Nexus in part 3 and goes to Smackdown, feuding with Barrett along with Gabs.

A Six Man Ladder Match for Cruiserweight Championship, wow, that is amazing stuff. Kidd being the winner is amazing as well, that kidd has so much potential that can be used and certainly he would do wonders with the Cruiserweight Championship, so Jackson Andrews is his bodyguard guy?

Gauntlet for the Tag championships is great, I especially love the ending, you know where Gabs and Bourne win the titles!!!! That's great here, I like them as a Tag Team.

The draft picks aren't bad my man as well, whens part 3 coming up? Thats the only thing I ain't a fan of, parts and if there is parts there should be only 2.

Raw Part 2:

Well you still kept everything centered which is kind of confusing, but sometimes the little things make all the difference. As for your storylines, matches and so on...

U picked up on my idea for having the World Title participants picked, which was good and made sense. One thing I did notice though was that Otunga, or any other member of the Nexus other than Barrett waas drafted so idk how that will pan out. And seeing Swagger go so slow will really hurt his status as a Mid-Card/Main Event kinda guy. Seeing Legacy being picked together was odd since they aren't a team as of now, but I'm sure you are planning on putting them as one.

So far so good, as they would say with the great ladder match for the returning Cruiserweight title match whcih you might of wanted to push more, as it was the return of the title. I am excited for part 3.

This looks ok, im not too sure about the pictures, looks a bit unprofessional but it was a good idea to start with a draft. Would have preffered one aprt though.

I would like to see Joe's name to stay as Joe Afoe rather than same as TNA

You're matches are well written with good lenght.

Good luck with this

Thanks for the comments, i named the Etihad Group as i plan to use them in a storyline with Teddy Long.

The reason i named all the new superstars on the stage like that is to give an insight into their personality and setup a couple of feuds (noticeably the Helms, London confrontation).

I am fully aware of Homicide being Puerto Rican but i plan on using him in a cross brand feud with Mysterio as a part of the GM Challenge and have a sort of King of Mexico thing with ADR involved as well. This will be set up later in the show.

I'm going to try and post the rest of it later today. I've been trying to mould my writing style so that i can get people interested hence the parts as well, normally it will all be in one post.

Part 3 will reveal more into the Nexus, Swagger being drafted so low and how he will bounce back, plus Legacy being drafted together, as you may have noticed but they are in the US Title match together as well.

The US Title Match will be a Championship Scramble Match
The Hardcore Title match will be a hardcore over the top rope battle royal.
Divas Title will a battle royal as well.
WWE and World Heavyweight Title will be elimination by pinfall or submission matches

Just incase everyone isn't aware the new indy stars are

Recognisible Name New Name

Christopher Daniels Daniel Christiansen
Homicide Jorge Sanchez
Jimmy Rave James Richards
Petey Williams Ryan Kelly
Samoa Joe Joe Afoe
Austin Aries Ben Jacobson

I suggest you read the rules, because posting shows in individual parts is not allowed. I"ll let you post the last part of your first show, but after that each show will have to be posted as a whole.

Raw 3rd January 2011 - Part 3

We are in the backstage area and we see Ben Jacobson standing there with a mic in hand.

Ben Jacobson: My name is Ben Jacobson, I have come here to World Wrestling Entertainment to change what you think you know about you, about me and about sports entertainment and that time is now. No matter what happens here in the WWE there will be one thing that is guaranteed and that is that Ben Jacobson will be climbing the ladder to glory and whether it be one step at a time or in leaps and bounds I will be at the top in no time.

We go back to the commentator’s booth they still don’t have an announcers table in front of them.

Michael Cole: Well what an introduction from Ben Jacobson here tonight.

Jerry Lawler: That was impressive it will be interesting to see if he can continue this in the ring and make good on his guarantee.

Matt Striker: Well that will be interesting to see if he doesn’t eat his words.

Michael Cole: Let’s go backstage with the Nexus once again.

We shoot backstage as Wade Barrett is standing in the locker room with the other members of Nexus sitting down looking a little bit depressed.

Wade Barrett: What is wrong with you two, the three of us took out Bourne and Gabriel for you and you still couldn’t get the job done.

David Otunga: Wade we may not have won tonight but we have something that no one else has and that is unity.

Heath Slater: You know what Wade we might have lost tonight but that’s not the end of the Nexus, no matter what happens after the supplementary draft we will still take over the WWE and be a real force.

Michael McGillicutty: You know what we need to make an impact; we need to make an impact here tonight. We need to prove to the WWE Universe that we are the real deal and make a stand here in the WWE.

Husky Harris: I like where you’re going with this, McGillicutty. We need to make a statement here tonight.

Wade Barrett: Now that’s what I want to here, let’s go hunting.

We leave the locker room as we head to the interview area with Jack Swagger and Todd Grisham.

Todd Grisham: I’m here with Jack Swagger, who will be competing in the upcoming United States Title match. Now Jack you were one of the lucky few to be drafted...

Jack Swagger: Hold it right there Todd, I may have been drafted tonight over to Smackdown but I honestly cannot believe that I was drafted so low. I am a former World Heavyweight Champion and Money in the Bank Winner, I deserve respect. How on earth can someone of my calibre be drafted behind the likes of Zack Ryder, Tyson Kidd, Kaval, Daniel Christiansen, Jorge Sanchez and R Truth this just isn’t acceptable. So when I win the.......

Out of nowhere the Nexus jump Swagger from behind and brutally attack him. Barrett picks up Swagger and throws him into the set.

Wade Barrett: Take him out, eliminate him.

The Nexus destroy Swagger as he rolls around in agony.

We go back to the ring with Justin Roberts.

Raw Feedback

The opening part was decent and Vince seemed in character. The new wrestlers should be good additions to the roster. I’m not that keen on Tomko but I think you can do good things with Samoa Joe. Luger is a bit of a strange choice for Raw GM in my opinion, particularly as that storyline has been built up for quite a while in the real WWE. I don’t like the idea of having dual IC Champions, but it was an interesting finish to the first match. The ladder match was good, a little advice I would say is to split the match up into separate paragraphs as it would make it easier to read. I’m not too keen on Tyson Kidd’s manager/problem solver but I think he is a good choice as champion.

The tag team gauntlet match was good, the only problem I had was that Gabriel and Bourne seemed to get to be the last team to enter by default, which seemed like a bit of an unfair advantage as they weren’t originally part of the match.

Nice to see you feature a scramble match. A couple of things I would say, I understand this is a special draft edition on Raw but I think there are too many different match types for one show. The other thing is that in a scramble match I think it is better to call whoever scores a pinfall the ‘match leader’ rather than interim champion because they are not really the champion and that saves any confusion about title reigns.

The WWE Championship match was solid and I understand why you wanted to bring Miz’s reign to an end at this point. The WHC match was good, one of the best parts for me was when Undertaker countered a spear from Edge into a sidewalk slam. Anyway, best of luck.

Smackdown 7th January 2011

The pyro goes off to start Smackdown as Sting is in the ring to start his first show in charge.

Sting: Welcome to Smackdown, it’s that time of the year again as we shape towards the Royal Rumble and ultimately Wrestlemania. So tonight we will be having a tournament to determine who will be facing Sheamus at the Royal Rumble for the WWE Title. We will have Drew McIntyre face R-Truth, Alberto Del Rio face Rey Mysterio, Jack Swagger face Wade Barrett and Triple H will face Kane. Speaking of Kane he is still yet to be medically cleared to compete tonight after that brutal attack from someone on Monday Night. Shall Kane not be medically cleared Triple H will face someone yet to be determined. The seven superstars who do not win this tournament will automatically qualify for the rumble but if I feel they aren’t pulling their weight I can easily make them defend their spot against someone else. Now onto another pressing matter and that is surrounding the WWE Intercontinental Championship. On Monday we saw both John Morrison and CM Punk declared winners so I have made the decision that we will be having a best of 7 series between the two superstars and the first Superstar to get to four wins will be declared the sole WWE Intercontinental. The first match will take place next and the second will be at the Royal Rumble in three weeks from Sunday. And finally we will have the first amongst a series of qualification matches for the Royal Rumble.

Sting drops his mic and walks out of the ring backstage.

Josh Matthews: Welcome to Smackdown, Josh Matthews here with Matt Striker and after that announcement made by new Smackdown General Manager, Sting, we are sure scheduled for a great night.

Matt Striker: You’re not wrong Josh tonight will be an epic night and what a first match that we have for you. It will be a tournament match Drew McIntyre facing R-Truth.

We go backstage with Kane getting a look over by the Doctor. He has a massive bandage placed over the cut on his head that was sustained in RAW.

Doctor: OK Kane, everything looks in good enough shape for you to wrestle here tonight against Triple H, but be careful you have bruised ribs and not to mention the laceration to the top of your head which I put 17 stitches in.

Kane: You were not going to stop me from going out there and ripping Triple H to shreds. Once I’m done with him I’ll take on the next few superstars and become WWE Champion. I will find out who attacked me and they will pay the ultimate price and that is being burnt alive. I will have no mercy on this coward and they will suffer the wrath of the Big Red Machine.

Josh Matthews: Some powerful words from Kane there, I hope his attacker knows what they’re doing because Kane is one scary man.

Matt Striker: You’re not wrong, but Kane needs to channel his anger and aggression and put it to good use in the main event against Triple H. It’s now time for our first Royal Rumble qualifying matchup for 2011.

What are your thoughts on this John?

John Morrison: To me it doesn’t matter if there was one, two, three, four, five, six or seven matches. The result will be the same; John Morrison will be the sole Intercontinental Champion. I am the Shaman of Sexy and the Guru of Greatness nothing can stop me from achieving my goals. One day I will become the WWE Champion but over the next few weeks my focus is on the Intercontinental Championship and beating CM Punk. CM Punk may have the GTS but I have Starship Pain. I am not afraid to take this to the next level and not only put me up in the lights but drag CM Punk there with me. Along with my girlfriend Melina (as she appears in shot), we will become the power couple of the WWE and show the WWE Universe that we are real deal and with the WWE Universe pushing us there we can achieve this.

CM Punk appears on screen and confronts Morrison and Melina.

CM Punk: Morrison, I faced you three years ago and for the ECW Champion and I got the better of you. What makes you think that this time will be any difference? I won’t need the seven matches to hold this Intercontinental Championship by myself. It only takes four and that’s all there will be. Even with your girlfriend in your corner doesn’t mean anything to me because unlike you I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, I am Straight Edge and that means I’m better than you.
