WWF WCW and ECW 2001 - Tri Branded

At the end of 2000 the World Wrestling Federation was looking forward to 2001 as the top promotion in the world and the strongest the company had ever been. They had demolished World Championship Wrestling in the ratings for a few years and had taken alot of WCW's star workers. WCW were in bad times the ratings drop was huge compared to the glory days of the N.W.O and backstage politics made it increidbly hard to move up the corporate ladder and the company were closer and closer to going bankrupt. Extreme Championship Wrestling was also in financial difficaulty and were losing money and there top stars to the top 2 companies. WWF Owner Vince McMahon saw an opportunity, to own all 3 major promotions and have them all under 3 seperate brands. This way McMahon would be able to continue the success of the WWF but be able to keep WCW and ECW in business under the WWF name. It would increase profits and would give fans a huge variety without having to turn to other shows. McMahon first met with ECW Owner Paul Heyman, Heyman knew that ECW wouldnt last longer without backing and accepted his offer and was giving the job role as the owner of ECW. Next was WCW Owner Ted Turner,this would end up harder then the purchase of ECW because current WCW workers Ric Flair and Eric Bischoff both wanted to put money together to keep the company from going under. McMahon didnt want to ruffle any feathers and asked both Flair and Bischoff to sit down and discuss the possibility of joining the WWF. After weeks of talks between the two Flair and Bischoff agreed to backdown and McMahon purchased WCW from Ted Turner. McMahon had done it he had control of all 3 promotions and could form them into 3 seperate brands. The plan was then scheduled for January 1st 2001 on the first Raw of the year. McMahon told Bischoff and Heyman to book the remaining WCW and ECW shows before the 3 companies merge to help see which superstars are the right fit to the new regime and help get rid of the dead wood.

WWF Raw is War Results
January 1st, 2001
From: Austin, Texas

Highlights are shown of WWF, WCW and ECW clips. Owners Vince McMahon,Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman are introducing their brands. All 3 men then stand together and say together "Tonight the wrestling world changes....forever.

We are shown to Mr. Mcmahon's office where the chairman is sitting by his desk. He welcomes the WWF fans and tells them that tonight the wrestling world changes forever. He introduces the new WWF Commishiner the Heart Break Kid Shawn Michaels. HBK looks into the camera and addresses tonight's main event. 11 men have been hand picked by Michaels for the Royal Rumble but 1 of these men will not be involved in the match. There will be a 11 man battle royal with the winner facing WWF Champion Kurt Angle at the Royal Rumble. Michaels then tells the fans to sit back and enjoy the ride.

J.R and King welcome us to the show. J.R reminds us that tonight will be a 11 man battle royal with the WWF superstars chosen for the Royal Rumble with the exeption of the battle royal winner who will face WWF Champion Kurt Angle at the Royal Rumble for the WWF Championship.

Match 1
Ivory vs. Lita

The first match of the night is WWF Women's Champion Ivory going one on one against Lita. These two start the show off with a great display. Lita starts the match on top using her unique offence to catch Ivory off guard. Ivory manages to use her veteran instincts and hits Lita while she is climbing the top rope. Ivory then starts to keep Lita grounded and slows the pace of the match working on her legs. Ivory stays in control for the majority of this match untill Lita starts to makes a comeback hitting Ivory with a hurricarana out of nowhere. Lita continues the offence and manages to hit Ivory with a twist of fate. Lita sees victory and goes to the top. She looks set to do a swanton but Ivory moves in the last second and Lita hits the ground hard. Ivory goes for the pin and picks up the victory.

Winner: Ivory by pinfall

Backstage we see WWF Hardcore Champion Raven walking about with caution. Someone taps him on the back and Raven jumps only to discover its Michael Cole. Raven shouts at Cole and says he has had it with the 24/7 rule on his Hardcore championship and he wants to talk to Commishiner Michaels immediatly to get the rule removed. Raven then walks to Michaels's office and walks in. Michaels asks what he can do for Raven and he explains that he is fed up of the 24/7 rule. Michaels responds by saying that he was going to tell him later that he already removed the 24/7 rule from the championship. Raven jumps with joy untill Michaels explains that the reason was that Raven had been drafted back to his old stomping grounds at ECW. Raven looks on in shock as Michaels smiles.

Next up we see WWF Tag Champions Edge and Christian talking about how it sucks to be in Texas. The Hardy Boyz walk up to them and challenge them for their spots in the Royal Rumble. Edge and Christian are hesitant but decide to accept their offer. Matt walks off but Jeff stays and tells them that the earth and the moon are coliding and it will lead to their demise. Jeff walks off and Edge and Christian stand around and ask what the hell he was talking about.

Match 2
Radicalz vs A.P.A

Tag team action as the A.P.A go up against The Radicals consisting of members Perry Saturn and Lightheavyweight Champion Dean Malenko. The match starts off well for the A.P.A as Bradshaw dominates the smaller of the two Malenko. They work on Malenko and easily overpower him. Malenko manages to rake the eye of Faarooq and works on the legs of the former World Champion. Saturn gets in on the action and both Radicalz work over Faarooq isolating him from his partner. This keeps up for the majority of the match before Farrooq finally overpowers Malenko and tags in the big Texan. Bradshaw cleans house and gives shots to both Malenko and Saturn. Malenko looks dazed and Bradshaw gets ready for the clothesline from hell. Bradhsaw runs into the ropes but out of nowhere Eddie Guerrero pulls Bradshaw's legs. Chris Benoit joins in and all 4 members of The Radicalz beat down on the A.P.A. The Referee has no choice but to ring the bell and call off the match

No Contest

HBK's music hits and out comes the commishiner of the WWF. Michaels tells The Radicalz that he is glad there out here because he has 2 announcments. Perry Saturn has been drafted to ECW and Dean Malenko has been drafted to WCW. The Radicalz are irate and shout at Michaels. All exept Malenko who has a little smile on his face.

Match 3
Edge & Christian vs. The Hardy Boyz

Both teams put on a great showing and show what the tag division has to offer. The match starts off with the teams brawling with each other. The Hardy Boyz start to pick up steam and Edge and Christian retreat out to ringside. This doesnt help as both Hardy Boyz dive to the outside. The teams finally get back in the ring and Edge and Christian get the advantage working on Matt Hardy. Matt eventually makes a tag but the Referee never saw it. They keep working on Matt distracting the Ref and double teaming the bigger Hardy. Towards the end of the match the tables turn as Christian goes to the top but Matt out of desperation hits the ropes causing Christian to hit the turnbuckle. Jeff is tagged in and the place goes electric. Jeff is on fire and hits a dropkick on Edge and then dropkicks Christian to the outside. Matt manages to get back on his feet and goes to the outside after Christian while Jeff and Edge are battling inside the ring. Jeff and Matt both get the upperhand against the Tag Champions untill Kurt Angle makes his way down hitting Matt behind the Referee's back. Jeff and the Ref notice and go up towards the ropes where Angle is. Angle distracts the Ref for Christian to nail Jeff with the Tag Championship belt. Christian covers Jeff and picks up the win for his team.

Winners : Edge and Christian by pinfall

Back in the locker room Edge and Christian are talking about their victory. Angle walks in and Edge asks him why he got involved in the match. Angle tells him its because he needs them to be in the main event tonight to stop the likes of Austin HHH and Rock of winning. The Tag Champions reply by telling Angle that there going to show the 9 other superstars and the ******** in Texas that they reek of awesomeness. Angle looks on with a menacing smile.

For the opening part of the match Billy looks on form untill Regal sees an opening and irish whips Gunn into the turnbuckle. Regal uses his technical ability and uses a variety of holds to wear down Gunn's arm removing the strength factor. Regal keeps down Gunn penting out some aggression due to the fact he was not given a spot into the Rumble match. Gunn suprisingly makes a little comeback overpowering Regal before his arm gives way and gives Regal the uppergand again. Regal has everything under control and has Gunn in a headlock.
