Sunday Night Heat

Pre-Judgment Day

The normal Heat video plays before cutting to outside the Target Center where Scott Hudson is stood with Terri.

Scott Hudson: Welcome to a special edition of Sunday Night Heat! I am Scott Hudson along with Terri, and we are live from outside the Target Center where Judgment Day will be held in just one hour.

Terri: We sure are and I have been waiting for this show for months Scott.

Scott Hudson: Yeah, every one of these 20,000 fans here have been waiting for months for this pay per view as well! As you can see behind us, the fans are streaming into the Target Center to see the Smackdown only extravaganza which sees The Undertaker squaring off with Diesel.

Terri: The WWE Championship will be on the line for that one in a Loser Leaves the WWE match, and do you think Diesel can live up to his promise and end the legend that is the Deadman?

Scott Hudson: Well it will be a hard task, but I can’t see Diesel pulling this one off. He is finally going into the match the underdog. But talking about underdogs, tonight we will see the Hardcore Title on the line in a triple threat match and once again the champion is the underdog, but this time he doesn’t stand a chance in hell.

Terri: I have to agree there, there is no way that Raven can win the triple threat against both the man-beast Rhyno and the seven foot tall, five hundred pound giant, The Big Show.

A video package promoting the Hardcore Title match is played.


We return to see Maria backstage stood with Kurt Angle.

Maria: Kurt, after your actions last week Smackdown General Manager Theodore Long has made a match for here tonight, you will go one on one with Booker T. Your comments?

Kurt Angle: My comments are simple, my actions on last weeks Smackdown did exactly what I wanted them to. They got Theodore Long’s attention, which is something I’ve been needing to get a title shot. Seeing as he paid no attention to when I beat Booker T in the Smackdown main event a couple of weeks ago, I tonight will do it again and finally make Long realize what an asset I am to Smackdown and how he needs me to be champion, how Smackdown needs me as champion, and how all of you people need me as champion.

We go back outside where Terri and Scott are still stood.

Scott Hudson: Kurt Angle confident about his match tonight.

Terri: Kurt Angle I think is overlooking Booker T, and looking ahead to getting a WWE Championship shot. He needs to first concentrate on Booker T, because he isn’t a step over.

Scott Hudson: As true as that is I still think that Kurt Angle will be victorious tonight and this will show Theodore Long that Kurt Angle should be given a WWE Championship shot. But not forgetting Edge, the man who Christian called ‘obsessed’ with being getting his WWE Championship shot.

Terri: Well I think that was confirmed this Thursday when Edge shoved Christian down to the mat after losing the tag team match versus the Hardy Boys.

Scott Hudson: And talking about the Hardy Boys, tonight on Heat the Hardy Boys will take on the tag team champions, Team Angle in a non-title contest.

Terri: That will be a great match to get these fans in the mood for some hard hitting Smackdown action that is Judgment Day! And hard hitting will be definitely found in the Street Fight between Stone Cold Steve Austin and Abyss.

Scott Hudson: These two men have not been allowed to lay a hand on each other before tonight, apart from last Thursday on Smackdown when Theodore Long lifted the rules for the six man tag team match that they were involved in. But finally tonight these two men will clash.

Terri: The Texas Rattlesnake taking on the Monster in a Street Fight.

A video package promoting the Austin-Abyss Street Fight is shown.


Scott Hudson: Welcome back to a special edition of Sunday Night Heat, we are about 30 minutes away from Judgment Day!

Terri: The atmosphere here is electric and these are as pumped as we are! But a match we haven’t yet mentioned on this program is of course the Phenomenal AJ Styles taking on the HeartBreak Kid Shawn Michaels!

Scott Hudson: That match will certainly be a great one, phenomenal if you will. These two high flying entertainers clash after months of getting in each others faces.

A video package showing Shawn Michaels rivalry with AJ Styles since him coming to Smackdown.

Backstage we see Maria stood with JBL.

Maria: JBL, tonight you finally take on your former tag team partner, Ron Simmons. What is running through your mind right now?

John Bradshaw Layfield: What is running through my mind? Are you really that stupid? I know that you bimbo blondes aren’t exactly famous for you intelligence, but you are now insulting my intelligence as well. I don’t have the time nor the inclination to talk to you, so we’ll make this quick. Tonight, as I’ve said before, tonight marks the dawning of the John Bradshaw Layfield era. Tonight I will show Ron Simmons and the rest of the world why I should be the WWE Champion, why I will be the next WWE Champion, and do you know why? Because I am a wrestling god! That’s why. And I will show Ron Simmons exactly what he was holding back when he was teaming with me. And I guarantee, I’ll repeat it so everyone can here this, I guarantee victory tonight. So you all sit back and watch the best man prevail, me, John Bradshaw Layfield.

JBL walks off and we return to the outside of the arena with Scott Hudson and Terri.

Terri: It looks like we certainly are not short of confidence here tonight, first Angle oozing with it and now JBL.

Scott Hudson: That’s true, but both of the two men have something to prove and both of them are proving they’re worthy of the same thing. The WWE Championship.

Terri: JBL guaranteed victory though Scott, and he always follows through on his guarantees.

Scott Hudson: That’s true, and proven by past experience.

Terri: But there is also another championship on the line tonight, when we see Eddie Guerrero defending his United States Championship against his nephew, Chavo Guerrero.

Scott Hudson: Don’t forget the fact that Eddie’s brother, Chavo Classic will be in the corner of his son, Chavo Guerrero.

A video package showing how the Guerrero feud came around is shown.

Scott Hudson: Ladies and gentlemen when we come back we will have the Hardy Boys taking on Team Angle!

May 22nd 2005

Target Center

Minneapolis, Minnesota

Theme Music: Drowning Pool – This Life

The opening video starts showing a noose, the screen is in black and white. The camera zooms out a little from the noose, showing a bit more of the rope and an abandoned house behind it. It zooms out some more to show the entire rope and a guillotine next to it, the image starts flickering. When it finishes flickering we see a man hanging up in the noose, it quickly zooms in on his face. We can only see the top of his head, but the head looks up and smiles.

Hung Man:Get ready…

It’s here!

The camera changes to clips of Eddie Guerrero battling with both Chavo Guerrero and Chavo Classic. The screen is flickering and is back in colour as Eddie battles it out with the two Chavo’s.

Narrator:When it comes to the end, who will be there to look back at how we lived our lives?

Clips of Abyss and Austin fighting each other are shown.

Narrator:Full of hate, evil and spite?

Footage of Filthy Animals helping Tajiri after Three Count have constantly being triple teaming him.

Narrator:Or did you help the ones who were in trouble?

Footage of JBL beating on Ron Simmons with a chair is shown.

Narrator:Or did you kick them when they were hurt?

A clip of AJ Styles and Shawn Michaels fighting is shown and then Michaels hitting AJ with a pair of brass knuckles.

AJ Styles:You will pay Shawn. You will pay.

Highlights from AJ Styles doing some great highflying moves are shown.

Shawn Michaels:You are nothing but a punk kid.

The footage suddenly stops and the screen goes black. All the sound stops and the screen remains black. Thunder is heard and there is a flash of white light. Another thunder sound is heard and the flash appears again, this happens another few times until the final flash of light is red. But this flash stays on the screen and images of The Undertaker’s career are shown. It then gets interrupted by Diesel pinning Stone Cold at Wrestlemania, but then the screen goes bright white all apart from Diesel who seems blinded by the light. The light goes dim and the screen goes black again, then images of Undertaker’s different eras flash across the screen extremely quickly and it shows Undertaker’s face, coldly staring through the screen.

Narrator:Whether it’s for pride or to prove a point, a war is fought. This casts a shadow that forces a day of reckoning upon us.

Clips from lots of the previous superstars are shown until the video returns to the noose from the very beginning. The man is still smiling but he is now bleeding from the mouth. All his teeth are red and he opens his eyes, a loud noise is made and an eerie music is played. His eyes are bright white and he begins to laugh.

Narrator:Judgment Day is upon us!

And now, Playstation 2 Presents, a Smackdown Production, WWE Judgment Day 2005!!!!

We cut to the arena where a load of pyros are going off! The fans are pumped and are all on their feet cheering as the camera scans around the crowd. It then shows the titantron before cutting over to Michael Cole and Tazz.

Michael Cole:Welcome to Judgment Day 2005!! We are live from Minneapolis, Minnesota and the 20,000 strong here in the Target Center are ready for an explosive Pay Per View!

Tazz:The atmosphere here is electric! And what a treat we have for you here tonight!

Michael Cole:Well we have got three Championships on the line here tonight, but these are not ordinary championship defenses. No, the United States Championship is on the line when Eddie Guerrero defends it against his nephew, Chavo Guerrero!

Tazz:And don’t forget the wild card in this one, Chavo Classic, in the corner of his son Chavo Guerrero Jr.

Michael Cole:And the WWE Championship match between champion, Diesel and challenger, The Undertaker has a lot more at stake than even the WWE Championship can match up to.

Tazz:Damn right, for one of these two men this is their last match, their livelihood will be altered forever.

Michael Cole:Because the WWE Championship will be defended in a Loser Leaves WWE Match!

Tazz:And we also have former partners, JBL and Ron Simmons locking horns, in what will be nothing more than a straight out brawl.

Michael Cole:Also, Cruiserweight action with a six man tag between Three Count and Tajiri who managed to get help from the newly reunited Filthy Animals in his quest for the Cruiserweight gold.

Tazz:Well, I still think that Three Count will prevail and beat the team of Tajiri and the Filthy Animals. But aside from that we will have the honour of seeing AJ Styles takes on the living legend Shawn Michaels!! That one will be off the hook!

Michael Cole:Well that match will certainly be a match for the ages and it’s AJ Styles’s chance to prove he is more than just a punk kid.

Tazz:Don’t forget that the Hardcore Championship is the final championship to be mentioned that is on the line tonight, when Raven clashes with the animal Rhyno and the seven foot tall, 500 pound monster the Big Show!

Michael Cole:Those are big obstacles for Raven!

Tazz:Big? They’re huge!!

Michael Cole:But, finally, in a street fight we will see Stone Cold Steve Austin battle the monster Abyss!

Tazz:Well this could be more than a street fight! The only rule is that you have to pin IN the ring.

Michael Cole:Let me pass you over to Hugo Savinovich and Carlos Cabrera at the Spanish Commentary!

Hugo Savinovich:Gracias Michael Cole, ¡y una qué demostración programar esta noche! ¡Empresario de pompas fúnebres que adquiere el Diesel!

Eddie then hits Chavo with the Frog Splash!!!!!! Eddie covers,




Chavo Classic puts Chavo’s foot on the rope!

Eddie’s music plays! Eddie wins!!! The fans go crazy and Chavo Classic does, but not in the same way. Chavo Classic is yelling at the referee who has noticed Chavo’s foot, he then stops Eddie’s music and he then tells the announcer something.

Tony Chimmel: The referee has informed me that due to Chavo Guerrero’s foot being on the bottom rope the match is going to be restarted!!

The bell rings and the fans boo as Eddie looks disappointed.

Eddie walks over to Chavo who quickly gets him in a small package!




Eddie hooks the bottom rope!

Chavo gets up and he and Chavo Classic celebrate as if they’ve won, thinking they have. Eddie meanwhile gets up and gets a steel chair from outside the ring while Chavo is celebrating with the US Title. The referee takes the title from Chavo and explains that he lost, Eddie then slides into the ring while the referee is handing the title out of the ring. Eddie smashes it over Chavo’s head and then passes it to Chavo Classic who is stood next to them. Eddie then lays on the mat and acts as if he was hit. The referee turns around and sees Classic with the chair. Classic denies it but the referee thinks he hit Eddie with it. While the referee is arguing with Classic, Eddie gets up and taunts while grinning to the crowd. He then climbs the turnbuckle and hits the Frog Splash!!!! Eddie then covers Chavo,




Winner; and still United States Champion; Eddie Guerrero

Eddie gets to his feet and taunts while Chavo Classic is extremely annoyed on the outside. He climbs into the ring and goes to attack Eddie from behind, but Eddie realize and he hits Classic with the US Title!! Eddie then places Chavo Classic on top of his son before climbing to the top rope. Eddie then hits Chavo Classic with a Frog Splash to a huge pop!! Eddie then raises his US Title above his head and celebrates.

Michael Cole: Eddie wins! Eddie is still US Champion!!

Carlito Caribbean Cool: Why did he just attack Chavo like that? That, that wasn’t cool.

Michael Cole: Chavo went to attack Eddie!

Tazz: And Eddie stole the damn win!

Michael Cole: Eddie should’ve won before that anyway, but Chavo Classic put Chavo’s foot on the rope. And both the Chavo’s did their fair share of lying, cheating and stealing, Eddie just did it better.

Tazz: How can you be proud of that? How can you be proud to have a lying, cheating, stealing champion?

Carlito Caribbean Cool: And uncool.

Michael Cole: I am proud of having Eddie Guerrero as our United States Champion! He is a phenomenal wrestler, and he deserves to be champion as well.

Tazz: Talking about phenomenal, standing by backstage is Maria with the man who will face the phenomenal AJ Styles, and beat him, Shawn Michaels.

Backstage we see Maria with Shawn Michaels.

Maria: Shawn Michaels, tonight you will face the man who last week blocked your Sweet Chin Music not once but twice. If he can do that tonight then he has a huge chance of beating you.

Shawn Michaels: He has a huge chance of beating me? He has a chance of beating me? Listen to me, and listen closely. AJ Styles has NO chance in hell of beating me. So he better be saying his prayers and telling himself that he is Phenomenal, but when it comes down to it it won’t matter. You cannot, not on your best day, and not on my worst, you cannot beat me. You are just the flavour of the month Styles, and the sooner you realize that the better. I have beaten bigger people than you have ever seen. I have beaten Bret Hart, Stone Cold, The Undertaker, Kurt Angle, Marty Jannetty, Triple H, the list goes on. I have competed in and revolutionized Hardcore matches, Ironman matches, Ladder matches, Hell in a Cell matches, Cage matches, Elimination Chambers, Casket Matches, I’ve been in matches you’ve probably never heard of. I am a grand slam winner, the first ever! I have held every title there is in this company; I have wrestled in and held titles in countries all over the world! I have won the Royal Rumble from being the number one entry, I have won the Royal Rumble twice. I was the founder of the greatest group of all time, I am a four time World Champion, I am the HeartBreak Kid, the Showstopper, the Main Event, HBK Shawn Michaels. But do you know the best bit AJ? I am the man who is going to beat you tonight to show you up for the punk kid you are.

Shawn walks off.

Tazz: I told you! I told you that Shawn would finish AJ Styles, and it’s confirmed, he will.

Michael Cole: But he is still to do it yet Tazz, and that match is later tonight. But up next, the Hardcore Championship is on the line.

Tazz: Raven really has no chance against Big Show and Rhyno.

Michael Cole: But knowing Raven he’ll give it his best shot anyway.


Raven makes his way out onto the stage. He stands on the stage doing his taunt and with the Hardcore title in his hand. Raven walks down the ramp and then climbs onto the apron. He then climbs onto the outside of the turnbuckle before doing his taunt again. Raven then drops down to outside the ring where he is throwing weapons into the ring.


Big Show’s pyros go off and he heads to the ring. Big Show climbs into the ring and does his taunt before looking down at Raven who is now sliding the weapons into the ring instead.


Rhyno makes his way down to the ring pounding on his chest. Rhyno slides into the ring and charges at Big Show with a shoulder block. But Big Show doesn’t move.

Hardcore Championship

Raven (champion) vs Big Show vs Rhyno

Rhyno bounces off the ropes again and hits Big Show with another shoulder block which only moves him slightly backwards. Rhyno bounces off the ropes again but this time ducks Big Show’s clothesline. Rhyno bounces back and Gore’s Big Show in the taped up ribs!!! Big Show goes straight to the ground but before Rhyno has chance to cover Raven slides in and hits him in the back with a kendo stick. Raven hits him in the back again with the kendo stick before Rhyno turns around, Raven smashes the kendo stick over Rhyno’s head, splitting the stick in half!!! Raven then picks up two trash can lids before he smashes them both over Rhyno’s head until Rhyno is staggering. Raven then drags a trash can over before attempting to suplex Rhyno onto it, but Rhyno blocks it and then lifts Raven up for a suplex, but Rhyno then slams him forward, straight onto the can!!! But Big Show is up behind him and he meets Rhyno with a Headbutt. Rhyno falls to the mat before getting straight back up again. Rhyno then hits Big Show with some right hands to the head, but once again having very little effect. Rhyno this time picks up a chair, unnoticed by Big Show, and he then smashes it over Big Show’s head!! Big Show is still not affected very much. Rhyno then drives the chair into the midsection of Big Show before hitting him over the head with it again. Rhyno then goes for a suplex, but can’t lift Big Show. But Rhyno doesn’t give up, he tries again and this time lifts Big Show before suplexing him! Rhyno goes to pick up the chair but Raven hits him with a low blow. Raven then picks up a pipe and pulls it upwards, low blowing Rhyno again. Raven now gets the pipe and swings it hard into the chest area of Big Show, then Rhyno, then Big Show! He then picks up his Hardcore Title and smashes it over Big Show’s head! Big Show goes down to one knee, but Rhyno clotheslines Raven in the back of the head. Rhyno now places a table up against the turnbuckle before walking over to Big Show, he goes to irish whip Big Show over to the table, but Big Show stands still. Big Show then pulls Rhyno towards him and clotheslines him down. Big Show now lifts Raven and military presses him to the outside! Big Show is about to climb out to Raven, but Rhyno sprays the fire extinguisher in Big Show’s eyes!! Big Show is blinded and Rhyno gets a run up before hitting Big Show with a Gore straight through the table!!!!!!!!!!!! Big Show is out! Rhyno doesn’t cover, he instead leaves the ring and gets Raven on his shoulder before heading backstage with him. Cameras follow Rhyno as he walks away, heading away from Big Show. But Raven manages to hit Rhyno with a few punches to the back before Rhyno puts him down. Raven then hits the Raven Effect!!!!



Rhyno kicks out!!!

Raven can’t believe it as he looks around for something to hit Rhyno with, he pushes a tower of cardboard boxes down onto Rhyno before he does the same with a ladder. Raven then sees Big Show coming and scarpers. Big Show follows Raven into the room that he went into, but Raven hits Big Show with a STOP sign. He then smashes it over his head again, he goes for a last shot but Big Show punches the STOP sign straight out of Raven’s hand!!!!! Raven is shocked, and while he is distracted Big Show grabs him around the throat and hits the Showstopper!!!! He quickly covers,



Thr-NO! Rhyno breaks it up!!

Rhyno hits Big Show with some clubs to the back before lifting him up and punching him in the face. Rhyno then gets Big Show ready for a Piledriver, but Big Show lifts up Rhyno and tosses him over his shoulders! Big Show hits Rhyno with a Headbutt, and then picks up Rhyno. Big Show lifts Rhyno high above his head, for a body press but Rhyno falls behind Big Show and pushes him forward into an iron bar that clotheslines him. Rhyno then hits Big Show with a running shoulder block followed by a couple of shots to the head with a kendo stick, and Rhyno then starts dragging Raven out of the room. Rhyno then lifts Raven up for a body press drop before throwing him straight over a steel fence!!!! Rhyno walks through the fence door, and he then padlocks the door closed. Rhyno then picks up Raven for a powerbomb and hits it, and we see Big Show walk out of the room they were in. Big Show walks up to the cage/fence, and he rips off the padlock!!!!! Rhyno looks shocked! He looks on at Big Show as he walks through the door, but suddenly Rhyno Gore’s Big Show straight through the fence!!!!!!!!!!! Rhyno quickly covers,




NO!!!! Raven just, just broke up the cover.

It would appear that breaking up the pin was Raven’s last ounce of energy, as he is now motionless. Rhyno doesn’t even bother with Raven, and he covers Big Show once again.



Big Show kicks out!!!!!!

Rhyno is shocked, and he sees Raven starting to stir. Rhyno smiles out of the side of his mouth, realizing he’s finally taken out Big Show. He then walks away from Raven, and then calls for the Gore, he crouches down and waits for Raven to get up. Raven finally stands up and Rhyno charges at him and Gore’s him!!!! But Raven dives out of the way, and Rhyno crashes straight into the wall!!! Raven quickly rolls Rhyno up in a school boy!



Rhyno kicks out!!!

Raven is shocked and looks desperately at his surroundings. He then sees something that catches his eye that he smiles at, he then walks over to somewhere. Raven pulls out……some barbed wire!!!!! He brings the barbed wire over to Rhyno and starts to cut open Rhyno’s head with it. Raven then pulls it off Rhyno’s head, and wraps it around Rhyno’s arm!!! His arm starts to get cut open as Raven kicks away at it. But while Raven is doing this, Big Show gets up! He grabs Raven from behind and throws him into the wall. Big Show pulls Rhyno up by his arm, and then grabs him around the throat, but Rhyno quickly kicks Big Show in the knee. Rhyno then clotheslines Big Show with the barbed wire arm. This hurts Rhyno a little, but Big Show more. Rhyno hits him with this once more. Big Show is now groggy, and stumbling slightly. Rhyno now drives the barbed wire into Big Show’s forehead. Rhyno unwraps the barbed wire and then wraps it around his shoulder, before hitting him with the Gore!!!! The barbed wire drives into Big Show’s gut, but Big Show is still standing! Rhyno gets a run up, and hits him with another Gore!!!!! This time Big Show goes down, and looks to be hurt after another two more Gore’s to the broken ribs. But before Rhyno has chance to do anything Raven runs up behind him, but gets hit by a Gore!!!!!!! With the barbed wire still around Rhyno’s shoulder!! Rhyno covers Raven,




Winner; and new Hardcore Champion; Rhyno

Rhyno stands up and snatches the Hardcore Championship from the referee. He then lifts it up and removes the barbed wire from his arm and he raises it into the air. Rhyno then wraps the barbed wire around the title plate, and holds it high in the air. Rhyno then stands tall above the knocked out Raven and the floored Big Show who is holding his ribs in pain.

Michael Cole: Wow! Rhyno did it, he defeated the Hardcore Champion and the worlds largest athlete, at the same time!

Tazz: Well that is pretty impressive, and it proves why Rhyno is a force to be reckoned with in the WWE.

Michael Cole: Well I can’t argue with that, especially after what we’ve just seen. But folks, I am getting word right now that Funaki has managed to get a word with the man who will be competing next, the man who claims to be the next WWE Champion and a self-made millionaire, John Bradshaw Layfield.

Funaki is stood backstage alongside JBL, who is looking straight into the camera with a huge grin on his face.

Funaki: This is Funaki! Smackdown Number 1 Announcer!!! And tonight, I ham stood by with JBL. JBL, up next hew are facing Ron Simmons, your farmer partner in APA, after you turned your back on him at Wrestlemania.

John Bradshaw Layfield: I beg your pardon? What the hell did you just say to me?!

Funaki: I said, up next hew are facing Ron Simmons, your farmer partner in APA.

John Bradshaw Layfield: How on earth are you an interviewer? How on earth are you allowed to be in America? I mean, look, this town may be full of common scum, but at least they can speak English! Well, only just.

JBL receives a lot of heat.

John Bradshaw Layfield: Are you people stupid as well as the smelliest town in MY America, in John Bradshaw Layfield’s America? I mean, look you give a hero like me, a wrestling god, a welcome like that, and you cheer someone who can’t even speak English?!

Crowd chant ‘JBL Sucks! JBL Sucks!’

John Bradshaw Layfield: Carry on, all you are doing is certifying your future! When I emerge victorious tonight, I will go on to be your next WWE Champion! And tonight dawns the beginning of JBL’s era, of MY era, of the era of John Bradshaw Layfield’s America! And I guarantee victory tonight, and once I have done it, I will make sure that Minneapolis will be wiped off the map.

Crowd gives JBL a HUGE amount of heat.

John Bradshaw Layfield: You people still can’t get over the fact that you aren’t as good as the greatest city on earth, despite how much you think that’s you. Deep down, in places you don’t talk about, you know that you will never be the greatest city, because always has and always will be New York City!!!!! And while we’re talking about that place deep down inside, in places you idiots refuse to talk about, and refuse to listen to, you know that I am the next WWE Champion. Some of you may even want it, but it won’t matter whether you do or whether you don’t, I will be the next WWE Champion, and bring light and honour back to America!

JBL walks off.

Michael Cole: He is such an ass.

Tazz: Cole, that is no way to talk about the next WWE Champion.

Michael Cole: How do you know he will be the next WWE Champion, what has he done to prove it? What has he done to show any indication that he can win the big one? He’s been all talk, he hasn’t proved a damn thing!

Tazz: You better watch your mouth, it’s gonna get you into even more trouble.

Michael Cole: Even more?

Tazz: Yeah, you already got yourself into trouble with Carlito once tonight. But anyway, you say JBL hasn’t proved himself, you stay sat right there, you make sure you are watching right and take off those tinted glasses. Because in about two minutes John Bradshaw Layfield will be proving himself, he will be making an example of Ron Simmons, who you seem to think actually stands a chance against JBL.


Ron Simmons music hits and he makes his way down to the ring to a small pop. He climbs into the ring and raises his arms on the turnbuckle.


JBL’s limousine pulls out into the arena and JBL climbs out. He has his hat in his hand and a huge cheesy grin on his face. He puts his hat back onto his head before walking up the steps and into the ring. JBL takes his hat on his head, and then stands on the turnbuckle. JBL then raises his arms with his hat in one hand. He climbs down and puts his hat on the mat, and then removes his jacket as well.

JBL slowly uses the apron to pull himself into the ring to break the count, and Simmons slowly follows. JBL gets up and hits Simmons with a right hand to the head, but Simmons strikes back with a series of rights and lefts to the head of JBL.

Michael Cole: Well Bradshaw wins, and he actually won fairly!

Tazz: What are you trying to say? Are you trying to say JBL needs to cheat to win?

Michael Cole: I’m trying to say that JBL usually cheats to win, and the way I see it, he may need to cheat to win. But tonight he didn’t need to win, he won fair and square, I’ll admit that.

Tazz: Only because you have to. It’s there in black and white, in front of your very eyes, there is no possible way to deny that.

Michael Cole: But Simmons certainly didn’t go down without a fight. He could’ve won the match from that Dominator, but JBL just managed to kick out!

Tazz: He has the heart and will of a champion, and he should be champion.

Michael Cole: Well that’s your opinion.


Christian walks out to the stage to a slightly mixed reaction, mainly heat, but there are some peeps in the crowd. Christian walks down the ramp pointing out peeps, before walking up the steps and into the ring. Christian then climbs the turnbuckle and pulls down his hood, he then points out more peeps. He climbs down and removes his entrance attire before getting a microphone.

Christian: Is that the kind of reception I get around here? I suppose I should’ve come to expect that sort of treatment by now. I mean I am Captain Charisma, I am the main man on this show and yet I am left off the pay-per-view? Now I don’t know what’s going on around here, but the biggest injustice of all time is happening and it’s happening right under all of your peoples noses. Captain Charisma, all your people’s role model, is being held down from the WWE Championship shot that I deserve. And instead of actually fighting on this pay-per-view I have to sit backstage and watch the pay-per-view that is lacking one thing, me. I mean, you’ve got some good matches, but none great. If I was given my chance then I would be bringing this pay-per-view to new heights, I would be making it a show to remember, but instead it is just mediocre. And while I was sitting back there I thought that you people could do with your dose of Captain C, so I thought I’d come out here to give this show some life! I mean, just by seeing me, all you people woke up from your deep sleep that the last match put you in, and woke up to listen to me. JBL, Kurt Angle, Shawn Michaels, they all talk about how they should be the WWE Champion but you are all overlooking me! Like everyone you are ignoring the fact that the greatest talent in this company is not even on the card tonight!


Edge’s fire goes up and Christian looks confused, Edge walks out onto the stage to a lot of heat. He runs to either side of the stage taunting the fans before walking down the ramp and sliding into the ring, Edge then removes his shades and gets a microphone.

Christian: Edge, what do you want man? What is up with you? I’m out here to give Judgment Day life! To wake up these fans, and to please the Christian Coalition. Why have you interrupted me?

Edge: I’m here to say, sorry.

Christian: What?

Edge: I’m here to apologize.

Christian: I should think so too! What were you playing at on Thursday, tagging yourself in when I had it won?

Edge: I don’t know. I just know that I shouldn’t of. I’ve been ignoring you, and overlooking you for my own ambitions.

Christian: Yeah you hav-

Edge: But by the sounds of it, so have you.

Christian: What?!

Edge: By the sounds of what you’ve been saying, you’ve been overlooking me too. You come out here saying how YOU should be on the pay-per-view, how YOU have been overlooked, how YOU should be WWE Champion. What about ME?!?! I, I am overlooked, I am not on the card tonight, and I should be WWE Champion!! ME! ME!! ME!!!!!

Christian: Well at least I won our tag match two weeks ago, you lost ours last week.

Edge: What?!

Christian: You heard me, I win, I won our match. You, YOU lost us the match last week, when I had it won.

Edge: I came out, to say sorry, but once again you turn it all about you, you, you.

Christian: All about me? It’s always about you! I don’t know what’s happened to you Edge, you’ve changed.

Christian goes to walk off, but Edge turns him back around and the two get in each others faces.

Michael Cole: I think we may have just sent he end of E&C.

Tazz: Always have faith Cole, this was just a misunderstanding.

A promo begins, it is like a shopping advert you would normally see. We see some men using exercise machine as well as women. A man walks into the picture next to a woman who is stood next to a table full of some kind of weight/exercise products. ‘I am Simon Dean, and this is my patented Simon System!’ Simon Dean picks up a product, ‘With my Simon System you can change from this’ a picture of an overly obese man in a dirty vest is shown. ‘Into this!’ a picture of a body builder with a six pack is shown. ‘I guarantee that my Simon System can change your life, from fat to fit!’ The promo ends with the Simon System logo and name being shown on the screen with Simon Dean’s smiling face shown on the left.

Michael Cole: Well I presume that is Smackdown’s new sponsor.

Tazz: A bit of a strange time to air a promo for it’s product, but hey, this is WWE, anything can happen right?

Michael Cole: It sure can, and I think it just did.

Tazz: What’s that supposed to mean? I think the Simon System could be a really good way for America to lose weight. You heard the man, from fat to fit!

Michael Cole: Indeed. But folks, up next is a match that I know two men have been looking forward to for a while.

Tazz: I wouldn’t exactly say you were a man Cole…

Michael Cole: I wasn’t referring to us two. I was referring to Stone Cold Steve Austin and Abyss, who haven’t been allowed to lay a hand on each other in order to get this match.

Tazz: Apart from the match last week, where they were allowed to do whatever the hell they wanted to!

Michael Cole: Just like tonight, Stone Cold, Abyss, street fight, anything goes, next!

Michael Cole: Michaels steals one!! He had to use the ropes to defeat AJ Styles because he was afraid he couldn’t beat him without cheating!

Tazz: Now come on Cole, Michaels dominated the entire match!

Michael Cole: Michaels only dominated the match because he cheated, he used chairs, steps, tables, a ladder, the security barrier, everything he could, because he couldn’t break down AJ! AJ had Michaels number from the very start so Michaels cheated! And even after all the weapons, the cheating, and all the beating down on his knee, which might be broken, AJ refused to die! AJ put up the fight of his life tonight, and I don’t know about you, but he earned my respect. And he may be out for some time with his leg, but I guarantee you one thing, AJ Styles is not just some punk kid! AJ Styles is not someone to be overlooked! AJ Styles would have beaten Shawn Michaels here tonight! And AJ Styles has all the tools and the heart to be WWE Champion!!

Tazz: Cole, you have no proof of that!

Michael Cole: Michaels was jealous of AJ Styles, and he wanted to stop AJ Styles while he could because AJ Styles reminded Michaels of himself. And I am afraid to say that Michaels may have done that.

Tazz: Well, Michaels may have gone one step too far with the chair shot on the steps to that knee, and I will miss AJ Styles when he is gone. This was a great rivalry, and a great match, and I hope somewhere along the line these two can meet again.

Michael Cole: Well I hope it is possible for AJ Styles to fight Michaels again, and that this isn’t the end of AJ’s career right there!

Tazz: I hope his career isn’t over as well Cole. But up next someone’s career is guaranteed to end. The following match is worth more than the WWE Championship, this became more personal.

Michael Cole: Diesel will defend his title, and his career against The Undertaker! Loser Leaves WWE, WWE Championship, Undertaker versus Diesel!!

Undertaker is still lying on the mat, it doesn’t even seem he knows his career is over! Still knocked out from the Chloroform that Diesel gave him, and still no movement.

Michael Cole: I, I, I can’t believe it, I, I just never, it can’t end like this!

Tazz: For over a decade this has been Undertaker’s yard, but we have just seen the big dog been put down. I can’t believe this.

Michael Cole: It took Chloroform to knock down Undertaker, and knock him out. AS you can see, Undertaker is still out, and he probably doesn’t even realize where he is, let alone the fact his career is over.

Tazz: Well you can hear the reaction here in the Target Center Cole, the entire arena is in shock, which is why there is such a deadly silence here.

Michael Cole: This is a dark day in sport entertainment, this is a dark day in the WWE, and I have enjoyed the 15 year ride that Undertaker has given us. 15 years of dedication, blood, sweat and tears.

Tazz: Not too sure about the tears there Cole, Undertaker is one tough nut. But the name Undertaker struck fear through hearts, it made people go white in terror, and we won’t even hear his name again.

Diesel is now heading up the ramp and is on the stage, holding the WWE Championship above his head.

The lights suddenly go out in the arena and lightning strikes the titantron! Diesel looks scared as druids begin to walk down the ramp with a casket, Diesel looks at them with a look of confusion.

Voice: You can’t kill it, it only gets madder. It will only grow and grow, until the demon will take you as a sacrifice.

Diesel looks down at the ring to see it is empty, which makes him look even more bewildered and scared. Suddenly the casket stops on the ramp and the druids walk it back up to the stage. Diesel is now looking scared and is trying to avoid the casket. The druids suddenly open the casket, and Diesel is screaming in fear!! But all there is is an urn. Diesel begins to laugh as he goes to pick up the urn but suddenly one of the druids grabs Diesel by the throat!! The druid suddenly Chokeslams Diesel!!! Bearer walks out from the stage and walks down the ramp to Undertaker. Undertaker hands him the urn, and then bows down to him. The fans are going crazy, but Undertaker is still fired!

Michael Cole: I, what? I mean, Taker, he’s fired!

Tazz: But the druids, Paul Bearer, the urn!

Michael Cole: You are right, Undertaker seems to have returned to the dark side and is bowing down to Paul Bearer and the urn. But it doesn’t matter, Diesel is still WWE Champion, and still a part of Smackdown, and the WWE. Undertaker, Undertaker is gone!


Tazz: And now the GM! What’s going on around here?!

Long makes his way out onto the stage with a microphone.

Theodore Long: Holla playas, now you see, something caught my attention during that last match. You see, when The Undertaker was pinned, and therefore lost his job, there was something that caught my eye. Roll the tape!

A replay of the pin is shown.

Theodore Long: During the pin there was something that referee Nick Patrick failed to notice. If you look closely, Undertaker’s foot was under the bottom rope!! And therefore, Diesel did NOT pin The Undertaker!! So Diesel is NOT the WWE Champion, Undertaker, you are NOT fired, and this match is NOT over! Restart the match, right now!!

The fans go crazy as the bell rings to restart the match!!! Undertaker smiles an evil smile out of the side of his mouth as Patrick goes back to the ring.

Michael Cole: Oh my god! The match is restarted!!

Tazz: I am so glad, Undertaker’s career is not dead, not like him. *laughs* And these fans are glad too.

Winner; and NEW WWE Champion; The Undertaker

Undertaker remains in the pin hold and sticks his tongue out while rolling his eyes back. The fans are on their feet!!! Undertaker still in the druid robe finally gets off the pin as Paul Bearer climbs into the ring.


Tazz: I can’t believe it Cole!! A few minutes ago we were saying how bad it is his career is over, and now we are celebrating the rebirth, or redeath, of it!!!

Michael Cole: It gives me great pleasure to say that The Undertaker is still a part of Smackdown!! And he is our NEW WWE CHAMPION!!!!!

Tazz: He sure is! And there’s 20,000 people on their feet in the Target Center chanting ‘Undertaker!’ and giving him a standing ovation.

Michael Cole: And Diesel is gone!! Diesel is fired! And for what he did The Undertaker tonight, he deserves it! I’ll be glad to see the end of him!

The ‘Undertaker!’ chants die down as the arena turns blue and Undertaker bows down to Bearer and the urn. Diesel is beginning to stir on the mat. Undertaker throws Diesel out of the ring and he begins to walk up the ramp to ‘Na, na, na, na!’ chants. The chants die down as Diesel is gone backstage, and Undertaker now gets handed the WWE Championship. He then bows down again with the WWE Championship in his hand, and his eyes rolled back into his head.

very good recap, remember alot of good things happening, there was a push for Rhyno, Razor Ramon got used. Austin/Abyss feud was entertaining, and I remember your WM very well, with the Austin/Diesel empty arena matchup, which was great.

JD was sweet, liked the Hardcore title, Street fight, and AJ vs HBK the most.

I hope that Diesel is no longer the champ, he shouldn't be up there, but I understand you like him and you can push who you want.

I will be reading, great to see you back again HBK, you were gone for a while.

This was kinda dumb on your part HBKWNWO. I mean, you are one hell of a booker but the main event was way too much. The others were fine, great, decent, but this is one I want to say on. Diesel wins fine and Taker dies. The show should have ended from there, because Diesel would have left with a lot of heat and be a bonifide champ, IMO but the druids and urn and BEARER was too much and killed the ending. Teddy to come out in the middle of it like he wasn't scared and annoucne to start over was very unreal and should have had more indepth but here's the final nail in the coffin, pun intended. Taker wins the belt in like a minute or two. So this PPV was great and the ending was almost great but the druids and Teddy and restarted match and Taker winning dragged down the PPV too much. Sorry, man but it's 7/10 for you.

WWE Breakdown: Raw
23rd May 2005
Atlantic City, New Jersey
Before the show begins the camera is backstage in Bischoff’s office, where he is stood by the roulette wheel with a big grin on his face. He welcomes everyone to NITRO Roulette, he announces that the arena will be the old Nitro one and the announce table will be back up at the titantron where there will be three announcers as usual, with tonight’s addition: (wrestling’s biggest asshole) Tony Schiavone!!

Opening Video; gets cut off and Nitro opening video plays instead

Schiavone and Tenay welcome you to Nitro Roulette, while King questions what the hell Schiavone is doing there. They mention that every title is on the line, and that in the main event Hulk Hogan challenges Orton for the World Heavyweight Championship.

The action then gets underway with the World Tag Titles on the line, with the wheel making it a STEEL CAGE match. Jericho and RVD looks very pleased that it is a steel cage match as it prevents WCW interference, however the challengers, Natural Born Thrillers still look fairly confident. Jericho and RVD seem to have the whole match under control and the Walls of Jericho is locked in on Palumbo! But Kanyon runs down to the ring with wire cutters!! He starts cutting away at the cage behind Jericho’s back, but Rob Van Dam spots him!! Kanyon manages to cut a hole in the cage but Van Dam hits a baseball slide to Kanyon!! And slides through the gap to the floor below!! The champions retain the titles, but the Natural Born Thrillers are beating up Jericho in the ring who is a bloody mess. Van Dam tries to get through the door, but it has been bolted shut, so he climbs up the cage but Kanyon manages to pull him down and throws him into the cage!! The champions retain, but the challengers definitely win the war.

Ric Flair cuts a promo in the ring, and he says in his time he has beaten everyone, and proved why he IS the man. And if Sting and Bret want to be the man, they have to beat the man, at Super Brawl! A triple threat I Quit match, the man who says the words I Quit literally quits the WWE. Not long after he says this the lights go out!! And Sting comes down from the rafters to a huge pop!! Flair notices this and quickly scarpers out of the ring and backs up the ramp to backstage. Sting stands in the ring and yells ‘WOO!!’ before taunting to the crowd.

Backstage Josh Matthews catches up with Ric Flair and asks him how confident he is about the I Quit match at Super Brawl. Flair replies by saying of course he is confident, otherwise he wouldn’t have made the match. Matthews then asks why he ran away from Sting, Flair gets pissed off and walks off.

In Bischoff’s office him and DDP are stood by the wheel, and DDP spins it. It lands on Bischoff’s choice, him and DDP then choose a First Blood match for Goldberg vs Batista next.

In the next match Goldberg and Batista face each other in a First Blood match, in which the two monsters destroy each other with weapons and their strength. But DDP climbs over the barrier and cuts Goldberg’s head with a screwdriver. Batista gets the win thanks to DDP, but Batista grabs DDP by the hair and throws him down to the floor before hitting him with a standing Spinebuster. Batista then walks off and leaves DDP for Goldberg, who slowly gets up. DDP crawls off though and picks up a steel chair, but Goldberg stands on it, and then picks it up and smashes it on the steel steps. He then lifts up DDP and throws him into the steel steps.

Backstage Torrie Wilson enters Bischoff’s office, and thanks him for the opportunity to be in Team WCW and the Womens Title shot, Bischoff says he is glad to have her and lets her spin the wheel for her next match. She spins it and it lands on bra and panties match.

The next match Torrie challenges Trish for the Womens Championship in a bra and panties match. When it looks like Trish is about to get the win Stacy Keibler slides into the ring and hits Trish on the back of her neck with the Womens Title before her and Torrie strip Trish of her pants before celebrating with the Womens Title.

Backstage Coach is interviewing Orton, who is not very confident about his title match tonight after all three matches so far tonight have had WCW interference. But Triple H interrupts the interview and tells Orton to enjoy his title, while he has it. When we return to the ring Schiavone and Tenay are saying that Triple H is joining WCW.

In the next match the Intercontinental Championship is on the line, in a No DQ match, as Scott Steiner defends against Buff Bagwell?! Steiner and Bagwell walk to the centre of the ring and trash talk each other, before Steiner pokes Bagwell who falls over. Steiner then makes the cover…1…2…3! Steiner retains in what was nothing but a con match. Steiner gets to his feet, and celebrates with the title as if he has just won the Royal Rumble. He and Bagwell then celebrate together, laughing. Suddenly…**My Time is Now** The crowd erupt as Bagwell and Steiner look as if they have seen a ghost, as Cena walks out onto the stage. Cena takes his jersey off and runs to the ring before he attacks both Bagwell and Steiner. Cena manages to beat both of them, and gets Steiner up for the FU, but Bagwell pulls Steiner off his shoulders and the two slide out of the ring while Steiner and Bagwell stand outside the ring trying to pull themselves together. Cena stays in the ring and stands on the turnbuckle pointing at Steiner and yelling.

Backstage we see Steiner, Bagwell and Bischoff who are all irate at Cena’s arrival. Bischoff announces that next week it will be John Cena taking on Scott Steiner AND Buff Bagwell in a handicap match, if John Cena can win he will get an Intercontinental Title Shot at Super Brawl.

The main event was up next with the World Title on the line, Randy Orton versus Hulk Hogan. Bischoff spins the wheel, but the match is already underway as Hogan and Orton are brawling in the ring. Hogan dominates the early going, keeping Orton on the mat. But Orton shows good heart by fighting back and managing to hit his variation of a backbreaker for a two count. Orton then sets up for an RKO! But Benoit climbs onto the apron! Orton hits him with a right hand and knocks him off the apron, before walking into the big boot from Hogan. Hogan then bounces off the ropes with a leg drop!! But Orton rolls out of the way!!!! Orton then goes up to one knee, RKO!!!! 1…2…3!! Benoit tries to make the save but is too late! Benoit stomps on Orton, while Hogan begins to get to his feet. Benoit continues to beat up Orton while Hogan gets to his feet and joins in the attack. We then see Triple H walk down the ramp with a chair in his hand and a big grin on his face, he then starts to applaud Hogan and Benoit, getting a lot of heat from the fans as he climbs up the steps and into the ring. He stands ready to smash Orton over the head, stalking him as he gets to his feet. Orton gets to his feet and turns around and Triple H levels h-HOGAN!!! Triple H then punches Benoit before pushing him into Orton who hits him with an RKO!!! Triple H stands above Hogan and lifts him up, kicks him in the midsection, PEDIGREE!!!! Triple H helps Orton to his feet and hands him the World Heavyweight Championship, congratulating him and celebrating the win. Triple H raises Orton’s arm in victory.

I like that bit about Schiavone!! Guess Bischoff didn't say that!!

Great Tag-Team Titles match. The hole must have been quite big then. Glad that RVD and Y2J won but as you so well put it, the challengers won the war!!

Nice promo with Flair/Sting/Hart!! Matthews just doesn't know when the right time is does he?! He doesn't know the right questions either. Good Promo.

Goldberg vs Batista makes another good match!! DDP will definately suffer again. Nice win for Batista!!

Stacy with Torrie?! WCW!! Oh right! Lol, Torrie new champ then, WWE have no chance!!

HHH/Orton showdown!! Hope so!! That was a good rivalry actually.

Lol, great match between Bagwell/Steiner. Cena looked as if he was gonna destroy someone or two!! I thought WCW were taking over?! Not WWE!! Go on Cena!! Get whooped!!

HHH/Orton together again?! How nice, will they fight off WCW then?! Go on you two vs them, you'll easily do it!!
