The Alamo, San Antonio, TX
Couple good pre-show matches, especially Bryan Kendrick vs. CM Punk (Punk won with the Go 2 Sleep. Got the crowd real fired up.
John Cena came out to a huge amount of boos. He said he’s never been one to care whether the crowd loves or hates him. He did what he said he would do, keep his
LSW Heavyweight Championship. Jericho comes out and says he lost and he can admit that. Jericho said Cena isn’t going to be rid of Jericho while Jericho’s still walking. Jericho wants a match right now.
Edge’s music plays and he comes out saying Jericho’s had his chance, but now it’s time for someone real to get his opportunity. Edge says he has Cena’s number. Cena says that Edge hasn’t won a match since LSW opened.
Suddenly Sting comes out saying Cena’s right. Sting says there’s four men in the right now, and only two of them won at Open Range: Cena and Sting. The four men start arguing when Mr. Kennedy comes out. All of them stop and stare and Kennedy comes down the ramp to a huge pop talking trash. Kennedy says if anyone should be facing John Cena, it’s MISTERRRR…KENNEDY…KENN…Edge cuts him off and again, everyone begins arguing until Christian Cage’s music plays.
Cage walks out and says he should face him. Cage says that Cena and him have something in common; they’re both champions. The difference is that Cage is the best damn champion ever while Cena is still a wannabe poser who’s 15 minutes of fame ended two hours ago.
Shawn Michaels walks out before a brawl erupts and says there’s five men who want the Heavyweight Championship and they’re all going to earn the chance to vie for it tonight. Tonight, Sting and Edge will face off for the last time tonight. Kennedy and Cage, you both want to shoot your mouth, we’ll see who comes out on top tonight. And Jericho, you had your chance. But you might get one more…if you beat that man…John Cena tonight. Michaels says he’s going to watch all three matches and he’ll make a decision next week.
Backstage, Paul London and Brian Kendrick cut a promo about their goal to be the Tag Team Champions when Christopher Daniels and Gregory Helms come and interrupt, saying if anyone’s going to be the champions, it’s them. The two teams bicker, ending with Helms challenging London to a singles match. London accepts.
William Regal vs. Finlay
-Great technical match. Regal looks to win it, when Finlay nails a low blow out of sight of the ref. Suddenly, Johnny Jeter runs down and begins brawling with Finlay, tossing the match out.
Finlay and Jeter brawl around the ring until they are finally separated by a mob of refs.
Backstage, JBL is walking to the ring. He says he has something to say, something shocking.
JBL comes out to huge heat. He grabs the mic and says that it’s a damn disgrace he wasn’t on Open Range last night, nor was he even booked in a match tonight. He said he thought LSW was the right place for him, but he’s never been more wrong. As of today, JBL is quitting LSW. He drops the mic and walks away calmly. The camera follows JBL all the way to the back. Shawn Michaels and JBL stand eye to eye, but Shawn Michaels simply steps out of the way and lets JBL walk to his limo and leave.
Paul London vs. Gregory Helms
-Helms wins when Daniels distracts the ref allowing Helms to nail a low blow followed by the Vertebreaker. Backstage, Punk and Striker were discussing the match as they watched on the monitor.
Backstage, Edge cuts a promo about how tonight he’s going to beat Sting and he’ll finally get his chance at the LSW Heavyweight Championship.
Sting vs. Edge
-The match was a brawl from the beginning to end. Edge won cleanly with the Downward Spiral. Sting appeared injured after the match.
Bryan Danielson cuts a promo in the back about being the Iron Division Champion. He says he heard all these people wanting to face Cena, and no one is stepping up for his title. He says it’s real simple; people know they can beat Cena, but beating Bryan Danielson just doesn’t happen. Bryan Danielson says he doesn’t need the LSW Title because the Iron Division Championship is the most prestigious title in wrestling.
Danielson is cut off when Christian Cage walks into the picture. Cage says the most prestigious champion is The Fusion Division Champion, “The Instant Classic” Christian Cage. Danielson said Cage goes out there and begs the people to notice him. On the other hand, people beg to see Bryan Danielson. Danielson says Cage will always be second-rate because no matter what title he has because he never earns it. Cage slaps Danielson HARD. Danielson spits a little blood out, and grins with a red-stained smile. Danielson wished Cage luck tonight and walks away.
Christian Cage vs. Mr. Kennedy
-Back and forth match. The ref gets knocked out and Cage goes for a chair, but Danielson runs down and drills Cage with the chair, allowing Kennedy to get the win.
Chris Jericho cuts a short promo about how if he loses tonight, he has no excuses for himself. He says he isn’t losing though, because tonight, it’s going to be about redemption.
John Cena cuts a promo, when Mr. Kennedy interrupts. Kennedy and Cena bicker, with Kennedy saying in just three short weeks, that LSW Heavyweight Championship is going to be around his waist.
John Cena vs. Chris Jericho
-Great match. The crowd is completely behind Jericho. Lots of near falls. Cena goes for the F-U, but Jericho slides off and rolls Cena up for a surprise 3-count for the win!
After the match, Cena attacks Jericho, focusing on his knee, when Mr. Kennedy runs down to the ring with a chair, scaring off Cena. Kennedy checks on Jericho, as Cena watches from the ramp. Cena turns around and is suddenly speared by Edge, who smiles his sadistic grin. Showdown goes off the air with Edge and Kennedy staring each other down.
