    Default Re: WWE PoweRaw

    Following the commercial break, we come back to ringside and allow John Layfield and Todd Grisham to get us pumped for the main event of the evening.

    Todd Grisham – “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to Monday Night Raw and do we have a very special main event lined up for you this evening.”

    John Layfield – “Only a genius could produce a match of this magnitude and give away for free, right here on PoweRaw.”

    Todd Grisham – “Gee, I wonder who that man could be.”

    John Layfield – “Someone much finer than yourself, I’m sure.”

    Todd Grisham – “Tonight, ten Superstars…”

    John Layfield – “Ten AMERICAN Superstars…”

    Todd Grisham – “Right, ten AMERICAN Superstars will compete in a battle royal…”

    John Layfield – “ALL-AMERICAN AMERICAN Battle Royal…”

    Todd Grisham – “Right, for the right to face Jack Swagger for the United States Championship at Night of Champions.”

    John Layfield – “In case there was still any confusion, let me clear it up, this is match and every reward attached to it, is all about AMERICA! God bless her.”

    Todd Grisham – “Yeah, I think we’ve covered that. Hey, doesn't it seem like we have a Battle Royal every week here on PoweRaw?"

    John Layfield - "It's a proven fact, people love Battle Royals."

    Todd Grisham - "And you're not worried about saturating the market?"

    John Layfield - "You just leave the logistics up to me and in the mean time check-out this video that has brought us to this main event match..."

    The cameras cut to a quick recap video. The first shots are of a title unification match at Bragging Rights between Rey Mysterio (Intercontinental Champion) and Jack Swagger (United States Champion). After taking a 619, Swagger stumbled backward into the ring and looked up to see Rey leaping off the ropes for a West Coast Pop, only to be caught with a powerbomb and Swagger flipping over him, and hooking the legs in a bridge and unifying the two titles into the United States Championship with a pinning combination. The following night on Raw, Swagger confronted the new General Manager, John Layfield, about the possibility of him fighting The Undertaker for the World Championship to add to his “collection” of titles. Layfield informed Swagger that even though he won the Intercontinental Title the night before, the two titles were now considered ‘unified’ and that he would have to relinquish the title to Layfield’s secretary. Defying his General Manager, Jack Swagger showed up to Raw the following week carrying just his United States Championship, but was informed by the GM that his secretary never received the Intercontinental Title. Swagger covered for himself stating that he was having a replica built for his trophy case and upon completion would hand over the belt. However, that same night, Swagger was set to defend his United States title in the main event against Ezekiel Jackson. Having some reservations against facing Jackson due to his Guyanese citizenship and not wanting to see the United States title on a non-American citizen, Jack Swagger instituted an impromptu change to the match before it ever began. Swagger coerced Ezekiel Jackson into accepting the match on the grounds that it would be the retired Intercontinental Championship on the line, instead. Knowing that the title was retired, Jackson still accepted opting to be the last man to hold the title. Unfortunately for Jackson, when he was able to get some steam in the match, Swagger would get himself disqualified and retained the title. The following week, the General Manager composed a Battle Royal match to determine the #1 Contender to face Jack Swagger for the United States Championship at Night of Champions. To Swagger’s surprise, the match was comprised of all non-American citizen wrestlers with the surprise Free Agent Debut of Muhammad Hassan who would shock the audience by dumping a handful of men, who were tied up in the ropes, all at once over the top rope to their elimination for the win. Following the match, Swagger would enter the fray and complain to the General Manager about the citizenship of Muhammad Hassan saying that the GM was out to deface and disgrace the United States title by giving a non-American citizen a title shot. John Layfield responded by agreeing and setting-up a separate Battle Royal the following week, comprised of only American citizen wrestlers and the winner would face Swagger at Night of Champions for the United States title. Swagger seemed satisfied until after he accepted, Layfield informed him that this was conditional upon him agreeing to defend BOTH the United States title against the winner of that match and the Intercontinental title against Muhammad Hassan at Night of Champions. Jack Swagger reluctantly accepted.

    Following the promotional video that set us up for this match, we go to the ring where Justin Roberts is standing by.

    Justin Roberts – “Ladies and gentlemen, the following match is the MAIN EVENT of the evening and it is the ALL-AMERICAN AMERICAN BATTLE ROYAL for the opportunity to fight Jack Swagger at Night of Champions for the United States Championship! Introducing the participants…”

    “Some Bodies Gonna Get It” hits and an odds-on-favorite to win, due to his sheer size and mass enters in the form of Mark Henry. “The World’s Strongest Man” marches down the ramp to the ring and if the crowd wasn’t on deafening terms, most could swear his steps were echoing throughout the arena.

    Justin Roberts – “From Silsbee, Texas… MARK HENRY!”

    As Henry’s music dies down, we are treated with our first surprise entrant and a WWE Hall of Famer. “Two by Four” hits and the crowd erupts as we see a true American walk onto the stage. “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan poses at the edge of the entrance stage with his 2X4 and American flag in hand. He has that silly look on his face with his eyes glazed over and tongue sticking out and he marches to the ring to the delight of the fans.

    Justin Roberts - “From Glens Falls, New York… HACKSAW JIM DUGGAN!”

    Duggan’s energetic entrance sends Henry to the outside to avoid getting his by a 2X4 and his music is quickly replaced with “I Come From Money” and the fans instantaneously recognize who it is and boo the son of the Million Dollar Man as he walks toward the ring with somewhat of a strut. Even though his last two appearances on Raw has left him beaten inside the crowd, Dibiase has confidence written all over his face.

    Justin Roberts – “From West Palm Beach, Florida… TED DIBIASE!”

    Dibiase and Henry join Jim Duggan in the ring, confident that they can subdue him if he goes bananas again. And then we are treated with our second surprise entrant as a mixed beat of a generic rock song with overtones of a classic bugle play we see The Patriot walking out with the second American flag of the evening. The fans barely recognize the Patriot at first but he still gets somewhat of a good reception for carrying an American flag with him on his way to the ring.

    Justin Roberts – “From Washington, D.C… THE PATRIOT!”

    And then the real treat is the inclusion of a now-manager in the WWE, when “Damage, inc.” hits we see the tag team of Smith and Wesson walk out, but we are shocked to also see that it is none other than Jim Neidhart who is dressed to compete. Behind him walks his two protégés and he directs them to stand at the edge of the ring and watch over him in the match.

    Justin Roberts – “From Reno, Nevada… JIM THE ANVIL NEIDHART!”

    Neidhart climbs up onto the ring apron and slips into the ring with the other four opponents and stands waiting until the “Marine’s Hymn” plays and nearly every fan in attendance leaps to their feet to see Sgt. Slaughter step out onto the entrance wearing his Marine Corps Drill Instructor hat and carrying the third American flag to the ring. He stops at the edge of the ring and salutes the fans and marches to the ring to one of the finest receptions of the night.

    Justin Roberts – “From Parris Island, South Carolina… SGT SLAUGHTER!”

    The fans give Slaughter a standing ovation and there is a long pause in the introductions until the “300 Violin Orchestra” hits and the fans see the Striker Brigade come out in numbers. Leading the pack is the unofficial wrestling leader of the group, Cody Rhodes.

    Justin Roberts – “And now the representatives of the Striker Brigade, from Marietta, Georgia… CODY RHODES!”

    Rhodes has his eyes dead set on his former partner who is still in the ring and unsure as to how Dibiase will react to when he climbs in. Rhodes stops at the edge of the ramp and combs his hair back and winks at a few of the female members of the audience before proceeding.

    Justin Roberts – “And from Hollywood, California, the tag team of NICK NEMETH AND SHELTON BENJAMIN… THE HOLLYWOOD BLONDES!”

    The Blondes strut a few steps behind Rhodes and there is a feeling in the air that the Striker Brigade will prevail in this match considering the numbers game is in their favor. Behind the Blondes, we see their manager, Matt Striker and with him is the Department of Labor representative, Stanley Williams. As the wrestling members of the Brigade climb into the ring, Striker and Williams approach the backside of the squared circle where they step around to the backside of the announcer’s table. Williams sits down next to John Layfield and Matt Striker next to Todd Grisham.

    John Layfield – “Gentlemen, I’d just like to know what the hell you two are doing out here.”

    Matt Striker – “John, it seems as though Mr. Williams felt that he would like to see up close and personal a wrestling match to get a better up-close evaluation of what the working conditions are like around here.”

    John Layfield – “No, that’s unacceptable. You’re interference and meddling with my show has gone on long enough.”

    Matt Striker – “Unfortunately, you just don’t have a say in the matter.”

    Meanwhile, Williams continues writing diligent notes about the matters at hand, undeterred by Striker or Layfield.

    Justin Roberts – “And the tenth and final participant, please welcome from Aiken, South Carolina… THE BIG SHOW!”

    The air is sucked out of the arena in one large gasp as a huge pyro explodes from the center of the stage and the Big Show walks out. His right hand and a portion of his forearm is enclosed in a cast that is larger than a normal one. Big Show walks down to the ring to a huge reception from the fans. He stops at the edge of the ring and looks to his right and his left to see Mike Wesson and David Smith staring at him. He looks at his cast covered fist and opts to climb up onto the apron and step over the top rope into the ring, instead of confronting them.

    All-American American Battle Royal

    The Big Show | The Patriot | Sgt. Slaughter | Jim Duggan | Ted Dibiase
    Jim Neidhart | Nick Nemeth | Cody Rhodes | Shelton Benjamin | Mark Henry

    #1 Contendership of United States Title

    The match starts as soon as Big Show is in the ring and right away he is defending himself from attackers from every direction. As usual, Big Show is the obvious target and all other nine competitors are going to try to do anything they can right from the start to get him over the top rope so they can breathe a sigh of relief. Their unplanned attack proves to be futile as Big Show’s expectations were correct and he is able to fend them off with a perfect gameplan. In the midst of the chaos, Show is in perfect position to nail a couple of knock-out jabs with his overly protected hand covered in a thick cast to a few of the competitors, leveling them on impact. Jim Neidhart is a smart man and stays as far away from Show as he can, but with each passing second, Big Show manages to either knock-out an opponent with a hook or chokeslam them out of commission. Just two minutes into the match and it’s Big Show staring across a ring polluted with downed bodies at Jim Neidhart. When push comes to shove, the Anvil is going to hold his ground, but that too proves to be useless as the much younger, much larger, Big Show just grabs Neidhart by the goatee and jerks him in close. With no surprise, Smith and Wesson jump onto the apron in order to distract Big Show. Show slings Neidhart into Wesson, knocking him off of the apron and delivers another knock-out hook to Smith, taking him off the ring as well. Show would then send Neidhart over the top rope with ease to his elimination. The Big Show then locks eyes with the General Manager sitting at the announcer’s table and smiles from ear to ear. He then shocks everyone within the ring when he steps over the top rope and hops onto the floor to his elimination.

    Outside the ring, the Big Show grabs Jim Neidhart by the goatee and pulls him to his feet. He then military presses him high overhead and turns, and tosses Neidhart over the announcer’s table and the collision sends the Anvil right into John Layfield and the Department of Labor Representative, Stanley Williams. All three collapse to the floor in a heap and it can easily be distinguished that Mr. Williams may have been injured by the impact. The Big Show stands laughing at the three men, but is suddenly attacked from behind by Mike Wesson and David Smith. The guns for hire beat Big Show down with clubbing blows. They don’t give him a free opportunity to get up and continue to beat away on him and target his broken hand but it doesn’t last long. The fans all rise to their feet and watch as Smackdown roster members, Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel rush down the entrance ramp and turn the corner. They rush around to the other side of the ring and within seconds there is a brawl on our hands. The Nexus duo clashes with Smith & Wesson and bodies begin flying around and equipment and construction begins getting destroyed. It takes a handful of security personnel to separate the two teams, and just snag Big Show in time to keep him from getting his hands on the General Manager. It takes nearly four minutes to get the ruckus under control but security is able to get the mess sorted. Once the dust settled, Big Show and the rest of the brawlers are escorted one by one to the back and we go back to the ring where action is still underway.

    The Striker Brigade are still well in-control of the match. With Big Show and Jim Neidhart out of commission, it has nearly turned into a four on four situation. The Brigade seems to have adopted Mark Henry into their ranks for the match to help even out the sides and Henry and Slaughter are going at it, but the World’s Strongest Man grossly controls the action with his brute strength and size. In other areas of the ring, the Hollywood Blondes are delivering a beating of their own to the older Patriot and Jim Duggan. But the spotlight of the extravaganza appears to be Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase really laying into one another. Some of the featured moments of the match sees Rhodes attempting to decapitate Dibiase when his neck got caught in the top rope, tying him up. “Dashing” Cody charges the ropes and tries to rock Ted’s head off with a kick but Dibiase drops all of his weight and pulls the top rope down and the momentum takes Rhodes over the top rope. Cody manages to hang on and Dibiase slips out of the ropes and sees the perfect opportunity. He reaches over the ropes and locks on the Million Dollar Dream to Rhodes and looks to put him to sleep right there and just release him to his elimination. Unfortunately for both men, Rhodes isn’t going to let this one get the best of him and pulls Dibiase up onto the edge of the ropes. Cody leans out away from the ring and hangs on to Dibiase, locking the move on tighter. He then pulls Dibiase over the top rope and the two men fall of the edge of the ring apron to their elimination.

    With just six men left, most of the participants begin to turn their attention to Mark Henry considering his size advantage over the others. Shelton Benjamin and Nick Nemeth make a grave mistake by sliding underneath the ropes to check on Cody Rhodes. in the absence of the Hollywood Blondes, Mark Henry is left without any aid and the combined efforts of Sgt. Slaughter, The Patriot, and Jim Duggan are able to subdue him and with a little extra effort on their part are able to lift him up and hoist him over the top rope to his elimination. An official gives him Nemeth and Benjamin an ultimatum to return to the ring or face elimination. Rhodes tells them that they don’t stand to gain anything by not trying to win this for the Brigade. When the Blondes do reach the ring, they see the uneven numbers and the “Legends” are banding together against them. Sgt. Slaughter picks off Nemeth and the two go at it toe to toe. Meanwhile, Benjamin easily has his hands full with the Patriot and Duggan and the fans really get behind the trio of legends. The last shining moment for the Brigade sees Benjamin nail his Paydirt to the Patriot, knocking him unconscious. When Benjamin comes around, though, he is nailed with a charging shoulder tackle from Hacksaw that takes him over the top rope. Not realizing what he did right away, Nemeth sees an opening and dropkicks Duggan. Jim is flung into Benjamin, knocking Shelton off the apron to his elimination and Duggan flips behind him and now we’re down to three inside the ring. Nemeth took his concentration off of Slaughter just long enough to give Sgt. an opportunity to get an attack in. The fans go wild when Nemeth is locked into the Cobra Clutch and walks him closer to the ropes. Slaughter then flings Nemeth over the top rope so that he is standing on the apron. He releases the hold in order to let him fall to the floor but Nemeth manages to hang on tight. He too sees an opening and swings for the fences. At the last second Slaughter ducks away and pushes Nemeth off of the apron to his elimination. Inside the ring we see the Patriot staring at the back of Slaughter’s head and he charges across the ring and dumps him out with relative ease.


    Winner – The Patriot.
    The fans can’t believe what’s happening. The Patriot has earned the right to fight the United States Champion at Night of Champions. The forty-nine year old legend celebrates in the ring until “On Your Knees” hits and the United States Champion enters the arena.


    Jack Swagger – “Congratulations, Patriot. That was a hard-fought victory and you have certainly earned this title shot. And certainly, you meet the criteria and fortunately for you, there is no age requirement to be the United States Champion."

    The Patriot picks up on the age jokes and he’s not too thrilled by them.

    Jack Swagger – “I noticed you were carrying the American flag with you to the ring tonight; but I couldn’t help but notice that your flag has fifty stars; I was curious about that considering most of your life there were only forty-eight.”

    The fans are nearly laughing at the jokes but still not supportive of Swagger himself.

    Jack Swagger – “And don’t worry Patriot, if you should somehow come up empty at Night of Champions, you can always go back into retirement, again.”

    Swagger seems to have had enough gloating and starts to walk away but is cut off.

    The Patriot – “Hold it right there, Swagger.”

    Jack stops in his tracks, turning to look at the Patriot with a smile from ear to ear.

    The Patriot – “I may have not been so forthcoming with you all. Now tonight, I wrestled as the Patriot, but traditionally, I have not been known by that name…”

    Jack Swagger – “Oh really, who are you? Tatanka?”

    The Patriot – “…not exactly.”

    The Patriot reaches up and takes off his mask and looks up, much to the surprise of the fans.


    Christopher Daniels – “Where I’m from, they call me Christopher Daniels. Don’t get too used to all that gold on your shoulder. In three weeks, I look to relieve you of some of it.”

    We go to the final commercial break with Jack Swagger screaming at Chris Daniels for the deliberate trickery. When we return, the final segment of the night.

    When we return from commercial break, the ring area has been vacated of the wrestlers that were scattered about. The Department of Labor Official and even the Striker Brigade had moved on to the backstage area and we wait patiently to see who has asked for the final spotlight of the night. “Time to Play the Game” hits and out walks Triple H wearing a non-wrestling attire. He walks slowly to the ring and once inside he picks up a microphone off of the mat.


    Triple H – “I asked to speak here tonight because I wanted to address my involvement with the abduction of my wife Stephanie McMahon.”

    The fans aren’t going to give Triple H a free second to explain without booing him.

    Triple H – “My marriage with Stephanie has been tearing at the seams for quite some time now. She and I have grown into two entirely different people than we were when we met.”

    They’re really letting Hunter have it now. Some are even catcalling and hissing at him.

    Triple H – “And my involvement with her abduction is exactly as it seems. I knew what Kane wanted and I gave her to him. And I did so, willingly.”

    Triple H is not winning any love with the fans, who are not littering the ring with trash.

    Triple H – “But Kane, this has gone on long enough. This is not the agreement you and I spoke of. You made your point and you have what you want; now it’s time to give her up.”

    For the first time we see some actual emotion in Triple H when he is addressing the abduction of his soon-to-be ex-wife.

    Triple H – “And even though my marriage with Stephanie is falling apart, she is still the mother of my children. And rest assure, if you lay one hand on her; Vince McMahon will be the least of your worries.”

    Triple H’s tone goes from passion to defensive as he addresses getting his wife back.

    Triple H – “Kane, you have what you were looking for, now it’s time to return her back to her family.”

    There is a long pause as Triple H expects that at any second Stephanie and/or Kane will walk through the entrance at any time, but to no such luck.

    Triple H – “I’m sorry, Steph…”

    We can visibly see a tear drop out and Hunter rubs his eye to dry it.

    Triple H – “I should have done something…”

    Triple H places his microphone on the mat and steps through the ropes. He begins to walk up the entrance ramp but halfway up he is cutoff when the video screen goes live and we see a black and white camera turn on. The shot is over the shoulder of an indistinguishable man. We are looking at what he is looking at. A white van with a pair of headlines nearly blinding us. Soon we see a man emerge from the van. He reaches in and pulls out something and drapes it over his shoulder and walks closer to the man with his back to the camera. Once closer, we can see that the man who emerged from the white van is Kane and the object on his shoulder is Stephanie McMahon. When the two men speak, their voices are muffled through poor technology and the sounds of nature echoing in.


    Unknown Voice – “Well, did you get what you were looking for?”

    Kane – “Yeah, he gave it to me.”

    With his free hand, Kane produces the rolled up piece of paper that Mr. McMahon gave him last week.

    Unknown Voice – “Well, where do you go from here?”

    Kane – “I’m going to go find him.”

    Unknown Voice – “Where is he?”

    Kane – “Kansas.”

    Unknown Voice – “And her?”

    Kane – “My job here is done. I have no use for her. But you? Well, I thought you might need her.”

    Unknown Voice – “You read my mind.”

    Kane hands Stephanie over to the unknown figure and we hear his vehicle door open and then shut. He approaches again, only slightly.

    Unknown Voice – “When you get there; be careful. I met him a few years back. There’s something wrong with that kid.”

    Kane – “Oh, I’m counting on it.”

    Kane and the unknown figure shake hands and Kane turns and climbs into his white van and it maneuvers through the woods until it’s gone. The dark figure turns and walks away and we still don’t have a clear shot of who it is. The camera is flipped up like it’s going to be turned off, but suddenly it is rotated around so that we can have a very clear look of the face of the unknown man.


    The Undertaker – “Triple H, you have something I want. But now, I have something you want…”

    The Undertaker turns his camera into the front window of the vehicle he put Stephanie in and we see her passed out in the backseat. The Undertaker smiles before he flips the switch and Raw goes off the air.

    | WP REVIEW |


    - The show opens with a nice detailed summary of the events of last week, which is a fantastic way to refresh my memory. Afterwards, we cut to McMahon in the ring. Nice promo there man; not OTT "NO CHANCE IN HELL" McMahon, but a very serious and determined McMahon. Not shouting, not raising his voice, but you can tell he means every word he says. Great stuff.

    - The interaction between Grisham and Layfield is just top notch. Having the owner of the company on commentary is a fantastic move. “If you bring that up, you’ll be in serious need of a new job; hence, very financial for you.” Great line, there. The promo with the Striker Brigade was well written; Striker comes across as smarmy, and if he is to be a heel, then great. It's a fresh stable with young talent and a young leader/advisor/manager. It's different, and I love it. The lawsuit angle should be fun to see unfold.

    - Triple Threat Tag Match to open the show with a bang, should be fun. Opponents from previous weeks teaming is a cool concept, should increase tension between the guys in the division. As for the match itself Jeff, I have no complaints man; well written, thoroughly detailed, and the ending was unique with Punk locking in the Vice on an out cold Bryan, knowing full well he cannot tap so the referee will have to declare him and The Miz winners. Strong's promo was good. Nothing amazing, but got his point across and plants the seeds for next week in a match against Kofi. I expect Strong to go over, but who knows what will happen. Excited for sure.

    - The Swagger promo started off great, and reminded me much of classic Chris Jericho from his WCW days; cocky, arrogant, but you can't help but like the guy. The promo was well written, and I can just imagine Swagger droning on during the commercials. However, it kind of went downhill when Hassan came out. I don't mind Hassan, his character is different for sure. But I found the back and forth between him and Swagger a little cliche'. Swagger bringing up stereotypes only emphasised this. Started off fantastic, dropped off at the end, but put over their showdown at the PPV, so can't complain too much.

    - The Inglorious Bastards promo was good, but word of advice; an Irishman, to the best of my knowledge, would never say wanker or chap. Those are English terms. Just saying. Anyway, pretty predictable they would defeat Hawkins and Ryder, but a nice match nonetheless. I have no idea who you will have winning the WWE Tag Team Championship at Night of Champions, but a part of me wants it to be Regal and Finlay. Yeah, I'm biased, deal with it!

    - Matt Striker backstage with Williams was a fun segment. Striker bringing up the kidnapping was a nice touch, and it keeps the storyline fresh in our minds. Good really, because there are so many good storylines going on, it's easy to forget about a few that may get lost in the shuffle. Good work.

    - I like Chris Masters, and I like the gimmick. The promo was short, didn't have a lot of flare, but it read like a Chris Masters promo should; short, blunt and to the point. Didn't excite me all that much, but the point was made. Masters and R-Truth was a glorified squash, not that I'm complaining. A Cena appearance was inevitable, but I forgot all about Dinsmore! I'd love to see a Dinsmore promo to explain his actions in length, but for now, the beatdown with him and Masters was well done.

    - The Triple H/Vince McMahon promo was okay. My only complaint would be maybe taking some time to express the emotion behind the words, or the reactions from each character. That promo, while suspensful, read like a big wall of text. I used my imagination to really get into it, but maybe be a little more discriptive when characters are going back and forth with one another to add to it. Storyline wise, this confrontation had to happen, and as I said, it built suspense. I have no idea where you're going with this storyline, but I can't wait to find out.

    - I like Jackson v Kozlov, but the problem is not with you, it's me. I don't give a shit about Kozlov. Never have, never will. That said, the match was well written, seemed brutal and really put that across that it was nothing more than a slugfest. No idea where you are going with it, time shall tell.

    - The Battle Royal was amazing. It told so many stories, but all seemed just as important as each other. The Show/Neidhart/JBL saga continues, and I noticed that Williams appears to have been injured. Just another thing for Striker to bring up, nice job there. The legends teaming up would have been fun to see, and no doubt fans would have rallied behind them. Patriot wins, and is revealed to be Christopher Daniels! HOLY SHIT. Fucking ace Jeff, NEVER saw that coming. I loved Swagger's line asking if he was Tatanka under the mask also, terrific.

    - Last segment of the show with Triple H asking for it to stop. A tear comes to his eye? Wow. Trips disappears backstage, and it is hard for me to sympathise with him. Kane hands Steph over to an unknown person, and mentions Kansas, and the unknown man met him a few years back? 'The Viper' perhaps? Time shall tell. FUCK, THE UNDERTAKER? DAMN. SWERVE!

    - Jeff, the show was fantastic. When the only thing I can fault is breaking up character's speech with some description, you know you've impressed the fuck out of me and I've loved the show. As I said in the Mod Talk Podcast, each storyline seems as important as each other, which means each show feels epic and is instantly interesting. Seeing the storylines slowly playing out has been fantastic so far. Can't wait for more man, this has surpassed aPw in my opinion. Brilliant stuff.

    Jeff's WWE PoweRaw


    Jeff, as always, you continue to impress the hell out of me with your consistency. I don't just mean consistency with writing shows, but your consistency with writing excellent shows. Even your weaker shows are gripping and entertaining and your latest episode of PoweRaw doesn't change that fact.

    Opening Segment
    It's been said before that your opening segments are long, clustered and hard to read. While I agree, I really don't see how else you can encapsulate everything that is going on without doing this. Luckily, I keep up with your shows and don't really need to read the intro, but for people who are just getting into PoweRaw, this could be an issue.

    Again, I really don't know how you could change it to make it work better, but it's something I would think about. Then again, I always consider the lazy reader because I tend to be one. You don't seem to do that because you hold yourself to a higher standard, which I like. You might be the only one here that does. You're good, you know you're good and you act like it and deliver your shows as such. Don't lose that.

    Anyway, Vince sets the tone for the backstage antics this evening and we're good to go. Well done. Short and sweet.

    JBL & Grisham
    I like this team way better than when Matt Striker was at the desk. It's possible that I only like them better because I can familiarize myself with JBL more than Striker, since I know his character a lot better, but so do you. You use JBL in the best way every friggin' time. He's great behind the mic.

    Striker Brigade
    This is exactly what a heel stable should be. You've got a great mix of talent and, while I admit I don't know a lot about Striker, he seems to fit perfect in the manager role. I love what you've done with these guys so far and I can't wait to see how this business with them taking down the company plays out.

    Great exchange with JBL too. This might be my favourite thing about your show now. As soon as I see the Striker Brigade on the page, I'm at full attention.

    Triple Threat Tag
    I can't say enough about your match writing. Your influence is what made it possible for TNEW to exist, in that I figured out how to write quick matches that say a lot in a short amount of time. I figured this out by watching you. While I already kind of knew how to summarize matches effectively, I wasn't great at it until I learned from you.

    The end was amazing too. CM Punk making Daniel Bryan pass out was excellent. I'm interested to see what happens between Punk and Miz too, so I'll be keeping an eye on those two. I know the 'unlikely tag team' is done a lot, but I have a feeling you'll put a nice twist on it.

    ...and Kofi Kingston steps up. Interesting...I like how you wrote CM Punk here too. It was subtle, but good. You utilize him very well.

    Jack Swagger/Hassan
    I tend to skim feuds that don't really interest me, but here I didn't. At first I was like 'yeah yeah, American vs. Muslim, everyone hates Hassan..' but I gave it a chance and I'm glad I did. The exchange between Swagger and Hassan ('blow up', haha) was very good. I've always appreciated Hassan as a wrestler too, which is another big reason this feud has grown on me.

    Tag Team Qualifying
    That promo between Regal and Finlay was weak and comical, but I don't really see what else you could have done. I feel like you were just filling time, which I get.

    I've always liked Regal better when he struts out to the ring, takes the mic and scolds the audience. Nobody does that better than him as far as I'm concerned. Maybe something you can utilize in the future.

    I love this pairing, btw. Glad to see them get in the match.

    Striker and the Dept of Labor
    Very cool little segment here. Nothing else to say really.

    Masterlock Challenge
    I had a feeling that all this was planned to draw out Cena and I was right. Go me!

    You're building up the heat between Cena and Dinsmore, which continues to hold my attention. I think that's your best quality, in that you could have Doink the Clown and Orlando Jordan feuding and I'd still be like "WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN NEXT!?"

    Dinsmore continues to be brutal with his attacks too. Love it.

    HHH/McMahon
    A little foreshadowing, but otherwise this wasn't great. I've been hoping that you would dive into HHH and McMahon's personal lives a little more, maybe having them dig at one another about HHH moving in to take over the company. I've always been fascinated by the fact that Shane McMahon is pretty much gone from the company while Vince's son-in-law continues to be a strong force off-camera and continues to move up in the ranks.

    I'm saying too much here. I might give away something about TNEW.

    Jackson/Kozlov
    Two monsters tear one another apart and set the stage for a brutal feud. Can't go wrong with that.

    10-man All American Battle Royale
    The promo before the match holds the same problem as your intro, which I already commented on.

    Moving on, the match itself was great. Read what I said about the Triple Threat Tag match earlier if you want my feelings on this...

    ...THE FALLEN ANGEL!! As zap already said, "HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!" (I'm paraphrasing, but that's pretty much how we both feel)

    HHH Ends the Show...
    Normally I hate when shows end on promos, but you continue to look me in the eye and say "shut up RT. This is awesome."...or at least, that's what I imagine you're saying.

    HHH shedding a tear was good...Kane talking about a 'weird kid in Kansas' was better...Taker looking at the camera was fucking EXCELLENCE.

    Overall: 9.2/10

    Double Shot Review of WWE PoweRAW by WMS

    Monday Night RAW - May 2, 2011

    -Me and Will were talking about this in our podcast and we said the only problem/fault PoweRAW had was that sometimes there were huge walls of texts. The opening paragraph is huge. I think if you split that into three paragraphs, rather than just the one then it's easier to look at and read. Ignoring that, it's a good start as it refreshes my memory of the previous RAW. I always enjoy people refreshing my memory of the previous show - I may have to start doing it myself.

    -I liked opening the show with Vince. Any RAW that opens up with Vince always comes across as being a really important show. The short but sweet statement he had to say was a little chilling, but a really good way to start things off and continue the Triple H/Undertaker/Kane/Stephanie angle. Vince's choice of words, especially 'please' made Kane come across as someone with no mercy, a real monster - which is perfect for Kane's character.

    -Malenko introducing the two competitors for the Junior Heavyweight match was a very nice touch. I'm really enjoying his role in your federation.

    -Bryan versus Bourne is a terrific clash of styles in my opinion and is a match I'd love to see take place on RAW when Bourne gets back. And if RAW ever needed a random team, I think these two would make an awesome tandem. Bourne tagged with nearly every ROH wrestler in existence (okay, hyperbole!) when he was there so it would work with Bryan.

    -I love that these matches have time limits of 15 minutes. You can really tell a story so much easier with a time limit. For example this could go to a time limit draw, then they could have a rematch on PPV where the time limit is 30 minutes and already you have your story. Good touch.

    -The start of this match was real enjoyable: loved Bryan being established as the aggressor, already we're getting a story of the match. Bryan's dominance was fun to read. His offence was plain awesome, and you explained well how one mistake let Bourne punish him and work his way back into the swing of things. The ending was a little out of nowhere and as a result slightly anti-climatic but I'll excuse that as the quality of the match was fantastic. I don't know if there's anyone better at the summary format (match wise) then yourself.

    -I enjoyed the post-match attack by Strong. It was an awesome read and by having Strong only say a sentence or two, you kept it a good read. In real life he isn't a great talker so only saying a sentence or two is the best way to go for him. His intensity more than makes up for his lack of skills as a talker. On a side note, I love his role right now.

    -The paragraph following Strong's short speech was fantastic.

    -I love the interaction between Striker and Layfield. Two highly intelligent men, but with different values - makes for a great segment. The power struggle that is beginning to develop is very interesting also.

    -I didn't think you could improve any further but Rhodes, Nemeth and Benjamin's inclusion really made that promo all the better. I especially liked the 'brawn ... brains ... beauty' part. Overall, I'm loving the Striker's Brigade. A few people said they didn't like the name but I think it fits perfectly. The whole angle you have with Striker and these three young guys with him reminds me of the angles you seen in the 80's with managers leading factions. I enjoyed how Striker seemingly got the last laugh over Layfield at the end of the segment. Good work.

    -Loved the Miz tearing into Maria. I haven't heard the word Harlot for a good while either! His interchange with Malenko was very good too - Malenko got the upper hand on him but I enjoyed how Miz wouldn't let him get a word in as it continued.

    -Punk was fantastic. He came across as a tweener but I don't mind too much. I actually think it would be cool and challenging to write Punk as a tweener. Enjoyable stuff with them going face to face and Malenko interrupting them. These men are worthy of having a main event match which already establishes the Junior Heavyweight title as being one of grand importance.

    -Cena's promo was enjoyable and you did magnificent to capture his cheesy side before turning it serious - something that Cena does with most of his promos. The following was brilliant and something which I alluded to in a past review. You had Masters accept Cena's challenge then tease Cena breaking the hold before Dinsmore appeared and intervened. I had suspected an alliance between Dinsmore and Masters and it appears you're going down that route - fantastic. I loved Dinsmore's brief sentence at the end. The two came across as being sadistic and that made it the more believable that these two thugs could hurt Cena.

    -The interchange between Triple H and Vince rivalled Punk/Miz for your best work of the show. It was very intense stuff with Vince really getting in the face of Trips. I loved his threats throughout the promo. Really solid stuff and more good background for the big angle. The final few words by Vince were brilliant. It reminded me of Liam Neeson's line in Taken (where his daughter is kidnapped). I don't know if you're familar with that film but anyway I digress.

    -Layfield as new co-commentator rules. I love how he'll do both jobs at once, from the commentating table. Really fun stuff. The interaction between Grisham and Layfield as this post continues makes for a really fun read also. Awesome.

    -Hassan is a fantastic addition to your roster. I can't wait to see you incorporate him into a storyline. I also love the idea of an international battle royal - something I'm sure will infuriate Jack Swagger.

    -The battle royal was very well summarised. They're a bitch to write in general. I think I'll re-read this battle royal as I have a battle royal in mind for my fed. I think I can learn a few things from you're work here. The result of the battle royal was very cool, Hassan and Swagger are two polar opposites although both proud countrymen.

    -Swagger complaing post match was a given but still, very well done. I've got to applaud you for what you're doing here - having Swagger defend both mid-card titles is genius. You've given the midcard importance, a gimmick which will make the title meaningful and significant (unlike in real life). I can't tell you enough how much I love that.

    -Vince and Taker's interchange was every bit as good as the one with Triple H. I can forsee Vince regretting making a deal with Taker, but he was very convincing and Vince is very desperate. All in all, good stuff and more great build.

    -MAIN EVENT TIME!

    -The stuff with Malenko was interesting. I'm not a big fan of subtle stuff like that but it served it's purpose. We as an audience think Strong's behind this, but knowing your ability for a good swerve, I'll put my neck on the line and say it's something part of a bigger picture. Perhaps someone who has hired Strong, a mouthpiece/manager? A rival of Malenko? Anyway, you've got me intrigued so that tactic definitely worked.

    -Miz/Punk was your match of the night. Really enjoyed it, you made it a back and forth as it should be - full of reversals and the end sequence was well described. All the way from Miz's hurt shoulder to Punk trying to exploit it with the Urunage, and then the finish. The cheap win also kept both guys strong, and as a result puts some fire in Punk's belly for the rest of the tournament.

    -And the show ends in typical Jeff fashion - a swerve! Me and Will had a discussion about how you should end a show, saying cliffhangers were the best but you go about things slightly different. You leave us shocked and thinking about what we just read and as a result you get exactly the same result as a cliffhanger achieves: making the reader want the next edition of the show ASAP.

    -Concerning the swerve, Vince was slightly naive but considering the circumstances and who he is dealing with, we can forgive that. It also develops Vince's frustrations. As you've done throughout, you've continued great build.

    -All in all, from top to bottom it was a great show. You have so much right now - great tag division, a midcard we care about, a talented Junior Heavyweight Division full of character and ongoing angles (Strong/Malenko), Cena facing an uphill battle against the unlikely alliance of Masters and The Ripper, Striker's Brigade's battle with JBL and best of all the kidnap/World Championship story. Amazing.


    Monday Night RAW - May 9, 2011

    -Time for review numero dos.

    -The second RAW to start with Vince. And once again, it was a sombre way to start the show - foreshadowing something? Vince came across well here, and is playing the role of a concerned but mentally tough father very well. Good build as expected.

    -JBL and Grisham's interaction cracks me up . 'Hold it there slim' was a great line.

    -Got to say that I love Striker's Brigade's theme music. It really suits a cultured man such as Striker, and is intense also.

    -Just like last week, Striker and Layfield's interchange was gold. I adored how Striker stayed calm throughout but Layfield was annoyed and got riled up. 'OF COURSE IT'S GOING TO BE HOSTILE!' was an amazing line. It went over my head that it could have been Striker who rigged the lights but it makes sense. His denial was fantastic - 'thats ridiculous, you're ridiculous' was brilliant. A really good segment overall that played up to the fact that JBL could lose power of RAW and that Striker is a legit threat to the WWE. I'm loving this angle so far.

    -This tournament for the Junior Heavyweight Championship has been very well constructed. Holz used to do something similar when deciding his champions. Needless to say, I'm a fan of this concept - slowly building up and deciding a champion is both refreshing and rewarding.

    -The triple threat tag match is something different. Having these rivals have to work together in order to get a win added to their tally adds so much story tp the match and tournament. The tandems you went for were intriguing also, especially Punk/Miz. And I love you went with Bryan/Bourne! A really sweet concept and I can't think of many better matches to open a show.

    -I liked that Punk and Miz walked out with no pyros. Just full of concentration and focus.

    -Loved the opening with the two babyfaces kicking into Punk. A fun start which the fans would enjoy with the heel being dominated for the first few minutes.

    -The two faces turning on each other really got the match kickstarted. I loved Bourne getting all pissed off and attacking Kingston. From there, you did well to make all six guys look good throughout the course of the match. The mid-section of the match was fantastic. I loved all the chaos going on while Bryan had Punk locked in with the LeBell Lock. Then Morrison breaking it up with a running SSP rocked also - really fun picturing that spot.

    -That spot all lead to a fantastic end sequence. The story of Morrison taking the high risk but it not working then Punk coming out on top. I loved that Punk didn't take the chance of going for the pin and wanted to ensure victory by the submission. That was refreshing and made sense. Bryan stayed strong with you emphasizing that Bryan was out cold and could not do anything about the loss.

    -I enjoyed that Punk and Miz were the victors. The post match stuff really had me interested too. I certainly wouldn't mind more between these two. The heel/heel dynamic is one I enjoy as it's rarely used.

    -I didn't mind Strong's part after the match. I had reservations about Strong speaking but he came across very well. Kingston putting his place in the tournament on the line is very interesting. I can't help but think Strong will go over but nothing is predictable when you're behind it. Either way, I'll be reading to see how it turns out. I'd have loved to have seen it be Morrison offering his spot - seeing how he's such a high risk competitor, that could have been reflected there. Either way, good stuff.

    -I'm loving how Swagger is slowly but surely gaining fan support. He's goofy, patriotic and really reminds me of classic Kurt Angle.

    -Swagger mentioning how Hassan could one day challenge for his US Championship if he signs a citizenship form was fantastic. And what followed was even better: a touch of genius. It really reminded me of Jericho's 1004 Holds promo and had me in laughter. I loved him reinciting the American history for Hassan but the promo slipped in my opinion when Hassan came out. Hassan's part was fine but I think Swagger used too many stereotypical jibes. Ignoring that, it was very good build for an interesting feud that has reinvigorated your midcard division. Exciting stuff.

    -I could have done without Finlay and Regal's interchange. It wasn't great. Finlay for example would never use the word 'chap'. In fact, he's the type of man who would go around beating up 'chaps'.

    -Grisham and Layfield really put over these two well as well as making me care about the tag division and the turmoil match in particular. Good job.

    -The convincing win over Hawkins and Ryder was good: loved Ryder getting his nose popped and that set up your story. Hawkins has to work alone but gets dominated by the tough bastards that are Regal and Finlay. Forgot to mention that I love their name. You are the man when it comes to putting together guys who've never teamed before then making a believable partnership. I can't say enough how envious I am of your division!

    -Striker and Layfield are both magnificent. Loved the segment with Striker badmouthing Layfield and revealing a few truths to the Department of Labor. Layfield's reaction was gold.

    -Master's is quickly becoming one of my favourites in PoweRAW. I really enjoyed his pre match promo there. I loved his cocky comment about R-Truth too.

    -And R-Truth falls to the Masterlock. The sentence depicting Truth losing the battle was beautiful. Made for a good read and continues to push Masters.

    -I thought Cena was about to get revenge but once again Dinsmore gets him from behind. I'm loving these two attacking Cena - it makes a lot of sense and is something different for Cena. After Cena finally comes out on top he can return to the title chase while these two can be solidified as top talent. Everyone's a winner. The Brainbuster onto the chair was a mark out moment. Something you'll see in NWA: Genesis shortly also....[/spoiler]

    -Once again, loved the interaction between Vince and Triple H. You can do no wrong with this angle it seems. Fantastic.

    -Grisham and Layfield have me laughing my ass off.

    -Kozlov and Jackson was solid while it lasted. I do like that you're attempting to give everyone something to work with. I really like Jackson and thought he came across great in his promo with Swagger a few weeks back so I hope he comes out best in this. That said, I think Kozlov has a lot of character potential and I reckon you could unlock that. Double Countout keeps both strong.

    -I love JBL correcting Grisham. Love it.

    -Ten good choices for the battle royal. A few like Slaughter and Duggan are there for the gimmick but a few I'd have real interest in seeing face Swagger.

    -I enjoyed this battle royal even more then the previous week. You had a lot of good things going on here. Firstly, Stanley Williams being knocked down - that will have repercussions I am sure. All hell broke loose with Smith and Wesson being attacked, building up the tag team turmoil match lovely.

    -Then you had the Striker's Brigade in control only to be denied by the legends. And then you save the best till last! The Patriot is revealed to be Christopher Daniels. Amazing stuff. A real solid addition to your midcard division and a match between him and Swagger should be highly entertaining.

    -His interaction with Swagger after the match was really enjoyable. Swagger is by far my favourite Fan Fic character right now.

    -Triple H's promo was very well done. Firstly - it gave us an insight into the problems between him and Steph and secondly it made us actually feel slight sympathy for him with the tear in his eye.

    -Then what came next was amazing. This is the segment that for me gives you number one spot on P10 this month.

    -The interchange between Kane and the other man was intriguing. We, as an audience haven't a clue he could be talking to and Kane's reveal that he was going to Kansas was very interesting. (So much in fact that I googled 'wrestlers from kansas'.)

    -The reveal that it was Taker and he had double crossed Vince, working with his brother all along was exceptional, nothing short of genius. I can't remember having so much fun reading one certain angle like I've had with this one. Just amazing stuff.

    -Overall, this continues to be my favourite fed and after this show, has overtaken SEX as my favourite ever Fan Fic. I could use superlative after superlative to describe my feelings over your work. Amazing man.



    Man of the world.

    Monday Night Raw – May 16, 2011



    The fifth edition of Monday Night Raw under the helm of General Manager, John “Bradshaw” Layfield, dubbed PoweRaw kicks off with a video recap of last week’s show featuring “Burn it to the Ground” by Nickelback, which has officially become the theme song of the program. The drum line kicks up the video and we see some of the action of last week roll in.

    “We got no fear, no doubt…”

    The events involving The Striker Brigade and John Layfield deepens when Striker brought a Department of Labor representative, Stanley Williams into the mix to investigate the recent injuries and unsafe work practices on Monday Night Raw. To make things worse, while watching over the main event, the Big Show would toss Jim Neidhart over the announcer’s table to knock John Layfield and Stanley Williams out.

    “…all in, balls out!”

    In a non-tournament match, all six participants of the Junior-Heavyweight Division would take action in a triple threat tag team match, with the teams being comprised of former opponents of the tournament fighting for an extra win in the tournament rankings. In the end, CM Punk was able to overcome for his team and score a victory for himself and CM Punk. Following the match, Roderick Strong came out and challenged any of the six to a match for their spot in the Junior-Heavyweight Title Tournament; to which Kofi Kingston would answer.

    “We’re going off tonight…”

    In singles competition, Ezekiel Jackson and his former partner, Vladimir Kozlov, would rattle each other’s cage in a match that would go to a double count-out, after both men would beat the other into a ten count out of the ring. The action left both men wanting more and the fans asking when we would see more of either of the two. As it stands, both Jackson and Kozlov are without a match at Night of Champions, which is now less than two weeks away.

    “…to kick out every light! ”

    In tag team action, the newly dubbed Inglorious Bastards (Finlay and William Regal) fought Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder for a spot in the Tag Team Turmoil match at Night of Champions for the World Tag Team Titles. Regal and Finlay would overcome and earn the last spot, joining Smith & Wesson, the Hollywood Blondes, and Nexus (Heath Slater & Justin Gabriel) in the hunt for the title.

    “Take anything we want!”

    Chris Masters would once again stun John Cena when he insulted the Chain Gang leader for failing to break the MasterLock and then invited Cena’s good friend, R-Truth, out to try his hand. Despite his best efforts, Truth came up short and following the Challenge, Masters refused to break the hold. This invited Cena into the fray, who broke Truth loose, only to be attacked himself by Nick “the Ripper” Dinsmore. Masters and Dinsmore would then dismantle both Cena and Truth. The Ripper would finish off Cena with a brainbuster on a steel chair, leaving both men in a heap.

    “Drink everything in sight!”

    Jack Swagger made his rounds throughout the evening with a verbal assault on Muhammad Hassan telling him he would never get a shot at the United States title so long as he was a non-American citizen and then gave him a lengthy U.S. history lesson. Later in the night, the real opponent for the United States title was determined in an All-American American Battle Royal. To the surprise of nearly everyone, the Patriot was the last man standing. When Swagger insulted him for his age, the Patriot took off his mask revealing himself to be newcomer Christopher Daniels.

    “We’re going ‘til the world stops turning…”

    The highlight of the night saw Vince McMahon going after Kane once again for the return of his daughter, Stephanie. Triple H broke down, mentally, begging Kane to give him back the mother of his children. With the words ringing through his mind from his father-in-law, Triple H told Kane that he got what he wanted from Vince, now he needs to end this.

    “While we burn it to the ground, tonight!”

    The cameras would then cut to a field in the middle of nowhere where Kane turned Stephanie over to another person saying that he was going to go find someone in Kansas. Kane climbed into his van and drove off, while the cameras turn to reveal it to be the Undertaker who now has the abducted Stephanie. The final shots of the video are of Triple H crying, looking up at the video.

    The show officially starts with an off-site camera aimed towards a large building that closely resembles a State Capitol building in appearance. However, as the cameras near, we see a sign that reads, “Federal Penitentiary – Leavenworth, Kansas.” Historically, this site has housed some of the more hardened criminals in United States History for various crimes against humanity. In front of the building is a semi-circle drive and we watch as the very familiar white van from last week pulls up at the Northernmost point of the drive, closest to the steps that lead into the penitentiary. The door opens and out steps the “Big Red Machine” Kane.


    Kane walks up onto the steps of the Federal Penitentiary and turns back toward the cameras.

    Kane – “I’ve come to Kansas to find him. And while my reign of terror is coming to an end, his will just be starting.”

    We see dozens of guards and police officers rushing out of the penitentiary, rushing down the long line of steps.

    Kane – “And I would just like to personally thank Vince McMahon for making all of this possible.”

    The officers and guards close in on Kane, expeditiously.

    Kane – “He’s coming. And he’ll be there, real soon. Hahahahaha.”

    The officers all drop to a knee, save one, the Captain of the force. They all take aim at Kane with their handguns.

    Officer – “Kane, I have here a warrant for your arrest for the abduction of Stephanie McMahon. Put your hands behind your head and get on your knees.”

    Kane persistently laughs and does as he is told. He laughs nonstop as the officers rush him and handcuff and drag him up the steps to the penitentiary. The door closes as we go live to the arena.

    The official start of the show takes us live inside the arena to the announcer’s table where the General Manager of the show, John “Bradshaw” Layfield, and Todd Grisham are sitting by ready to welcome us to the show.

    Todd Grisham – “Hello everyone and welcome to the longest running episodic program in the history of television, MONDAY .. NIGHT .. RAW!”

    John Layfield – “Todd, I’m as excited as a redneck in a pawn shop! We’re just thirteen days away from the first ever Raw only pay-per-view .. NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS!”

    Todd Grisham – “From your own admission, John; by the end of the night the entire landscape for Night of Champions will be revealed.”

    John Layfield – “Every match, and sparing a few surprises every superstar on this very special night where every title will be decided or defended.”

    Todd Grisham – “John, am I mistaken or is that ‘joy’ I hear in your voice?”

    John Layfield – “Todd, nothing’s going to ruin this for me. Not Matt Striker. Not Big Show. No one. We are less than two weeks away from the culmination of the weeks of my hard work.”

    We leave the conversation between Layfield and Grisham as we go to the entrance stage where Roderick Strong enters wielding a microphone. The Junior-Heavyweight intruder walks slowly toward the ring as he addresses the crowd and more importantly his opponent for the night.

    Roderick Strong – “Tonight, I have the opportunity to justify the error of one man. Four weeks ago, Dean Malenko announced the formation of a new division here in the WWE comprised entirely of Junior-Heavyweight wrestlers.”

    Strong stops and stares at a fan who is wearing a Kofi Kingston t-shirt and laughs to himself, slightly before he continues to walk down the ramp.

    Roderick Strong – “On that same night, I annihilated another Junior-Heavyweight, Tyson Kidd, in a matter of just a minute. Yet, by the end of the night, Dean Malenko still overlooked me for six less qualified wrestlers.”

    Strong arrives at the ring and he climbs up the steps and into the ring. By this time, he’s taken a very heated reception from the crowd. Though most believe in his wrestling abilities, no one is standing by his means of showing it.

    Roderick Strong – “But tonight, I have my opportunity to prove that it should have been me. And when I take your spot in the tournament, Kofi, I assure you that when I go on to win the Junior-Heavyweight Championship, you’ll get the first title shot.”

    Strong tosses his microphone over the top rope and Justin Roberts catches it. From outside the ring, Roberts announces the upcoming match.

    Justin Roberts – “Ladies and gentlemen, the first match of the evening is scheduled for one fall and it is for Kofi Kingston’s slot in the Junior-Heavyweight Title Tournament. Introducing first, the challenger, weighing in at two hundred and twelve pounds.. RODERICK STRONG!”

    The fans give Strong another thunderous response of boos before they suddenly jump to their feet with excitement as “S.O.S” hits and Kofi Kingston races out of the back to a huge explosion of pyros. He stops at the edge of the entrance stage and slaps his hand three times with simultaneous explosions going off behind him. Kingston runs down the entrance ramp and hops onto the apron. Strong is waiting patiently as his opponent poses for the crowd.

    Justin Roberts – “And his opponent, weighing in at two hundred and twenty-one pounds.. KOFI KINGSTON!”

    Kingston climbs off of the turnbuckle to face his opponent. An official joins the two men in the ring and describes the rules of the match to them before calling for the bell.

    Junior-Heavyweight Tournament Slot on the Line

    Kofi Kingston vs. Roderick Strong

    With his position in the Junior-Heavyweight Championship Tournament on the line, Kofi Kingston showed a side of resilience that we have rarely seen in him. In this fight, it came down to two factors: the high-flying quick speed of Kofi Kingston and the strength and toughness of Roderick Strong. The two styles clashed perfectly and initially Kingston set the pace of the match. By ducking and dodging all of Strong’s attacks, Kofi was able to pick and choose his attacks and Strong’s frustrations proved to benefit Kingston. With Roderick on the ropes, Kofi would turn to his high-flying, very fast paced offense to take full control of the match. Utilizing an array of kicks to the chest, Kofi began to soften up his opponent for a potential knock-out blow. Kofi would first go to the top rope and nail a high-angle dropkick that drilled directly into the chest of Strong and drove him into the mat. Failing to pick up a three count, Kofi attempted to steal a win with a float-over Russian legsweep into a pin attempt. Strong not only kicked out of the move, but he did so with such authority that Kingston fell through the bottom and middle ropes onto the apron. Kingston would then shock Strong when he delivered a springboard flying forearm smash the saw him elevate to a sickening height into the air before connecting. The commentators referenced at this point whether Dean Malenko was right in assessment to leave Roderick out of the division for his inability to mount any kind of real offense.

    But they spoke too soon. Kofi made his first mistake of the match and it nearly cost him the whole thing. Kofi rushed the far ropes and off of the return, he stopped just short of Strong and with full theatrics jumped high into the air for his Boom Boom Drop! However, on the way down with his double legdrop, Strong rolled slightly toward him and flipped him onto his back hard with a pin attempt. Even though the pin attempt came up short, Strong managed to separate himself from Kingston long enough to manage an offense. Right away, Strong caught Kingston in mid-air who was attempting a flying knee smash and flipped him hard and downward into an angled backbreaker that left Kofi rolling on the mat holding his back. Strong nearly put this one away with a Full Nelson Backbreaker combination, but Kofi just managed to get his shoulder off the mat to save this one. With his backbreakers not getting the job done with the highly flexible Kingston, Strong looked to a Half Boston Crab to finish him off. With his legs nearly bent back to his head, Strong sit back as hard as he could on Kofi to force him into submission. Kingston stayed alive by scraping his way to the ropes and snagging it for the save. With Kofi barely able to move, Strong knew that the time was now to put this one away. He grabbed Kofi by the head and jerked him to his feet. He then applied a standing head scissors in the bottom left corner, aimed toward the top right corner. He flipped Kingston up into a powerbomb position and charged across the ring toward the corner. Just as he looked to toss him into the corner for a powerbomb, Kingston flipped backward and sent Roderick into the turnbuckle pads with a hurricanrana.

    Kingston comes onto a knee and looks over his shoulder to see Strong stumbling out of the corner. He jumps up and nails his Trouble in Paradise (corkscrew roundhouse kick). He quickly rolls over onto his opponent for another pin attempt. The official taps Kofi on the shoulder and informs him that Strong’s ankle is under the bottom rope and thus not eligible to be pinned. Kingston doesn’t seem to understand at first and questions the referee’s decision. Even the announcers are split on whether Strong’s foot was under the ropes or not. Kingston results to grabbing the legs of Strong and rolling him up for another pin attempt. He waited too long and now Strong kicks out just shy of the three count. Kofi can’t help but be upset. He is confident that he should have won the match already and he is going to make amends to ensure that he does so this time. He stalks behind Strong as Roderick begins to stumble upward off of the mat. Just as Strong stands up and turns, Kofi jumps and delivers a second Trouble in Paradise! NO! Strong ducks underneath and rushes behind Kingston and picks him up into the air in his patent Torture Rack submission! Kofi panics and flings about the best he can trying to escape. He knows there isn’t any escaping this submission. Strong tries to disorient Kofi by spinning him around in an airplane-like spin while jerking him in half in his Torture Rack. Kofi reaches frantically for the ropes trying to get the hold broken but he is too far away and his fingers can’t stretch far enough to snag it. In a fit of pain, Kofi reaches out one last time. However, this time he accidentally grabs the collar of the official and blindly jerks him into the elbow of Strong and effectively knocks him out cold.

    Roderick doesn’t immediately realize what happened but he then finishes off Kofi by hoisting him high up into the air out of the Torture Rack and dropping onto his own back with his knees bent upward and jerking Kofi downward back first onto his bent knees with a Torture Rack Backbreaker Combination. Roddy rolls over onto Kingston for a pin attempt. When he doesn’t hear the official’s count he becomes alarmed and looks around to see the referee unconscious nearby. While Strong tends to trying to awake the official, Kingston rolls to the edge of the ring and falls to the outside to a thud. Kofi crawls to a knee and tries to figure out what just happened to him. With his back in severe pain, Kofi can barely stand. Strong tugs at the official’s arm trying to get him oriented and awake. Kingston looks around and gets a grasp of the situation. Then to everyone’s surprise, Kofi reaches underneath the ring and produces a steel chair. At this time, Strong finally manages to pull the official off of his face. The referee is hardly awake but he is coming too. The fans are all wondering what’s going on with Kingston, who rolls back into the ring wielding the steel chair from under the ring. Kingston realizes that if he hits Strong with the chair, the official could possibly see it. Kofi thinks quick and does something unpredictable. He slams the steel chair onto the mat, creating a metallic thud that rings throughout the arena. Strong turns sharply to see Kingston behind him with the steel chair. Kofi doesn’t hesitate and tosses the chair to Strong and falls onto his back with another thud. The official turns around and pieces together the chair shot and immediately calls for the bell, disqualifying Roderick Strong for using the steel chair on Kingston.


    Winner by Disqualification – Kofi Kingston.
    Kingston lies on his back with an obvious smile on his face; his plan worked. Strong is in the face of the official immediately trying to plead his case. The official doesn’t want to hear it. suddenly, Kingston rolls over onto his stomach and leaps forward snagging the steel chair out of the hand of Strong and as Roderick turns he drives the blunt end of the chair into his ribs and then drives him to the mat with a shot across the back. Roderick goes down hard, holding his back in pain, but that was just the beginning. He then takes a handful of chairshots to his unprotected back before Kofi lies the chair on his chest and turns to leave him in his own demise. As Kofi walks to the edge of the ring, he looks over his shoulder and then rushes back toward him before jumping high into the air and connecting with his High Jump Double Legdrop onto the steel chair causing it to drive into the chest of Strong! The fans turn on Kingston for his underhanded actions. And we aren’t going to have to wait to find out why he did it. Kingston approaches the ring announcer and demands a microphone from him.

    Kofi Kingston – “That didn’t go exactly as you had planned, did it Rod? As it is, it seems as though I’ve played the role of the good guy around here long enough. And where has it gotten me? Absolutely nowhere. I’ve been on the side of every single one of you (the fans) since day one and the dividends for doing so have been against my own personal success. I’ve watched every flash in the pan superstar come in and make his own personal success in this company, and they’ve done so without you in their corner. Maybe it’s time that I look out for myself for a change. It’s time to look out for number one. Remember something, you need me. I don’t need you.”

    Kingston tosses the microphone onto the destroyed body of Roderick Strong before he walks slowly to the exit just before we head to a commercial break.

    Default Re: WWE PoweRaw *Spotlight of the Month*


    As we return from commercial break, we notice that the General Manager of PoweRaw, John “Bradshaw” Layfield is standing in the center of the ring. He is glowing with excitement as he prepares to address the sold out crowd.

    John Layfield – “If I look like a different man tonight, it’s because I am. We are just thirteen days away from a masterpiece that I have orchestrated. After twenty plus years of pay-per-view broadcasting here in the WWE, we will finally break the mold of how it’s done. Next Sunday, I cordially welcome you to join us as Monday Night Raw and World Wrestling Entertainment proudly present NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS! Three hours, six main event quality matches, and every title on the line, it will truly be a spectacle that you will never forget.”

    On the Titantron video monitor we see the match-ups for the Night of Champions cards, while John Layfield introduces us to the features.





    John Layfield – “Even though every Championship match will be contested, the Junior-Heavyweight Championship will be the only Championship not decided. As we stand in the middle of this tournament to crown the first ever Junior-Heavyweight Champion, we will go into Night of Champions to get just inches closer to finding that first champion. In this match, six of the finest wrestlers in the WWE today will compete in a Six Pack Scramble where two wrestlers will start the match and every five minutes they will be joined by another opponent until all six are in the ring. At any time during the match any wrestler can pin or submit any other wrestler, at which time he will be declared the interim winner of the match. He will lose that title when another wrestler of himself is pinned or submitted. When the last wrestler enters the ring, a final five minute period will commence and at the end of that period the wrestler with the last pinfall or submission will be declared the winner of the match. And that winner will receive a bonus win in the round robin style tournament to decide the first ever Junior-Heavyweight Champion of the WWE.”

    John Layfield – “In his first title defense of the night, Jack Swagger will defend his United States Championship against the newly signed Christopher Daniels after Chris won an All-American American Battle Royal disguised as the Patriot. Jack Swagger has made it known that he will only defend his United States Championship against American citizen wrestlers and Chris Daniels looks to take that decision out of his hands by defeating him in thirteen nights for the title.”

    John Layfield – “Originally slated to face Swagger for the United States Championship, Muhammad Hassan agreed to fight Swagger for the Intercontinental Championship or any other championship so long as it provided him the opportunity to take something from Jack Swagger. Will Swagger walk out of Night of Champions with both titles intact, just one, or dreadful after losing both of his titles in the same night?”



    John Layfield – “And a match that I can’t personally wait for. Four of the greatest teams in the WWE today, hell, WWE history will go to war in Tag Team Turmoil to decide the next World Tag Team Champions. After the transfusion of the Unified Tag Team Titles, the holders of the WWE Tag Team Titles, Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel of NEXUS on Smackdown are looking to come to Raw and claim more gold. Standing in their way are the tag teams of the Inglorious Bastards, Finlay and Regal and the Hollywood Blondes, Benjamin and Nemeth. And the likely winners of this match, my own personal security force, Smith and Wesson.”

    John Layfield – “Then in the main event, the one you’ve all been waiting for. The Undertaker showed his hand last week when he took custody of the abducted Stephanie McMahon. I expect to see more unfold in this story between now and Night of Champions, but already so much is on the line.”

    John Layfield looks like has wrapped up the match announcements and starts to head for the ring exit, but he stops in his tracks and continues to address the crowd.

    John Layfield – “That’s right, I did say ‘six main event quality matches’ didn’t I? Since this is the Night of Champions and we are declaring championships across the board, I thought that a sixth match would be appropriate. To kick off the program, I have commissioned a sixth and final match to add to the card. This match will feature any wrestler that wishes to participate in it. I have called this match, the ACE IN THE HOLE match. Hanging above the ring in this match are four briefcases. In each of these four briefcases is a contract for a guaranteed title match that can be cashed in up to and including the next WWE pay-per-view, FULLY LOADED. One briefcase will have a contract for the Intercontinental Championship, one for the United States Championship, one will have two contracts for the World Tag Team Championship to be used by its possessor and a partner of his choice, and the final for a World Championship match. These contracts can be cashed in at any time. As for the participants of this match? Next week we will have a mass contract signing for anyone that wishes to participate. All they have to do is step over to that table (announcer’s) and sign the contract. Ladies and gentlemen, please accept this as a personal invitation for you to join us next Sunday night for a night that you will never forget. Thanks.”

    Layfield lays his microphone on the mat and exits the ring, joining Grisham at ringside.

    Following John Layfield’s Night of Champions announcements, he takes his seat but is almost immediately cut-off by the sound of hands clapping. Initially they are clapping together in unison very quick but they come to an almost sarcastically slow speed. The cameras cut back to the entrance stage where we see Matt Striker and his Striker Brigade comprised of “Dashing” Cody Rhodes and the Hollywood Blondes, Shelton Benjamin and Nick Nemeth walking out onto the stage. They are mockingly clapping the announcement.


    John Layfield – “What the hell are these guys doing here?”

    Striker walks at the peak position of the group, almost in a bird triangle formation as they walk down the ramp and climb into the ring. In the background, we can hear their anthem, the “300 Violin Orchestra” playing softly as they gather within the squared circle.

    Matt Striker – “Bravo, John. Bravo. You’ve successfully masked for these people the sheer state of panic that you’re in right now. On the outside, you’re calm, collected, hell you’ve plastered a smile over the constant state of fear you’re living in. You call this the culmination of a lifelong dream? You can’t even convince yourself that you’ll last long enough to enjoy it.”

    Layfield throws his headset down so that what he yells at Striker cannot be audibly heard by the people watching at home as he screams something at him.

    Matt Striker – “Deep down, you know you’re about to lose it all, John. Last week, on your watch, a Federal employee working for the Department of Labor was severely injured on this show. Now I’m glad to report that Mr. Stanley Williams is expected to make a full recovery and return to his duties here next week; making sure that the employees of this company have a safe and non-hostile place to conduct their business. And at Night of Champions, he will make a recommendation to Mr. McMahon on whether or not you’ve done your job adequately to protect the Superstars of Monday Night Raw from unsafe work conditions.”

    John “Bradshaw” Layfield is nearly about to lose it. His face is beat red and Todd Grisham tries to convince him to set down and let it go but JBL just brushes him off.

    Matt Striker – “But rest assure, John. Mr. Williams is watching tonight. And should something happen that would jeopardize the safety of one of these superstars, he will see it. Just like how he witnessed you ordering your thugs to intentionally break the hand of the Big Show while he was visiting from Friday Night Smackdown. Or when you carelessly didn’t inspect the set-up of this arena and a light fixture fell from the ceiling and caused shards of glass to slice open the face of Dean Malenko. If you jeopardize the futures of these young studs, he will see it. And he’ll close you down.”

    Layfield climbs up on the apron barking orders at Striker, but the Hollywood Blondes and Cody Rhodes stand between the two men. Striker can’t help but laugh.

    Matt Striker – “Go ahead, try it. What stands between you and me is the perfect combination of brawns, brains, and beauty. They’ll eat you alive before I even get a taste of the action. Go ahead, sit back down, John. You’re going to want to see this program from up close and personal. You can’t help but wonder, who’s going to fall victim to your unsafe work practices next? I guess, only tonight will tell.”

    Bradshaw is fuming as Striker lays his microphone down and the Brigade follows him out of the ring. We cut to a commercial break as Bradshaw is joining his partner back at the announcer’s table.

    Following the commercial break, we return to ringside where everyone is frantically getting ready for the second match of the night.

    Todd Grisham – “Hello everyone and welcome back to Monday Night Raw! We are…”

    John Layfield – “That little twerp! Does he know who he is messing with?”

    Todd Grisham – “Still upset with Matt Striker, I see.”

    John Layfield – “He’s going to learn the hard way that you don’t mess with John Layfield.”

    Todd Grisham – “Didn’t you say that a couple of weeks ago?”

    John Layfield – “Keep it up. I’ll have you selling popcorn on the third balcony to fat women on welfare checks.”

    Todd Grisham – “Don’t tease me with a good time.”

    The cameras turn back to the squared circle where the ring announcer is standing by to announce the next match.

    Justin Roberts – “Ladies and gentlemen, the next match is scheduled for one fall and it is a FATAL FOURWAY MATCH! In this match, the first participant to score a pinfall or submission will be declared the winner. In this match, the respective partners of all four competitors will be banned from ringside. Introducing first…”

    “Damage, inc.” by Metallica plays and we are welcomed by one half of the Hired Guns tag team, Mike Wesson. Wesson’s face is painted nearly completely white with a black painted box covering his eyes with spikes pointing up and down out of the box. He is wearing a leather attire with metallic spikes sticking outward in all directions. His hair is cut short and pushed back. Joining him is his manager, Jim “the Anvil” Neidhart wearing a similar but less flashy attire. Neidhart grooms his long goatee and laughs as they walk together toward the ring. They pass by the announcer’s table where John Layfield stands up to greet them.

    John Layfield – “MY BOYS! FIST BUMP!”

    Layfield pounds fists with Wesson and then Neidhart as the two climb into the ring together. Once in the ring, Wesson sheds off his spiked leather coat so that he is down to his tights only. Neidhart gives him some last minute advice before leaving the ring.

    Justin Roberts – “Weighing in at two hundred and ninety-three pounds, he is one half of the Hired Guns tag team.. MIKE WESSON!”

    Wesson receives a very negative reaction from the fans, almost as negative as the one his first opponent receives. Mike’s music fades into obscurity and is quickly replaced by 12 Stones’ “We Are One” the official Nexus theme song. The lights in the arena go dark and a yellow spotlight shines down on the crowd as we see a young Heath Slater walking through the crowd on his way to the ring. He has his Nexus armband and t-shirt on and marches quickly to the match.

    Justin Roberts – “And his opponent, representing Friday Night Smackdown and NEXUS, weighing in at two hundred and thirty pounds… HEATH SLATER!”

    It’s hard to decipher whether the fans are booing Slater because he’s from Smackdown, a member of Nexus, or just because they don’t like him. Regardless, he brushes off their boos and climbs into the ring. Soon, his music fades and there is a short silence.

    Justin Roberts – “Next, one half of the Inglorious Bastards, weighing in at two hundred and thirty-three pounds… FINLAY!”

    An Irish ditty by the Swaggerin Growlers plays as Finlay walks out of the back with his shillelagh in hand. The Belfast Brawler is wearing his traditional green and black attire with a shamrock plastered on the front. He snarls at his competitors in the ring and by all accounts is the fan favorite of the match. Finlay approaches the ring and climbs in, keeping an ever eye on the other two men in the match. He stands on the opposite side of the ring of them and waits out the fourth and final opponent.

    Justin Roberts – “And last, representing the Striker Brigade and the Hollywood Blondes, he weighs two hundred and twenty-three pounds … NICK NEMETH!”

    Out of the back, Nick Nemeth enters the arena to a chorus of boos. Most of the fans aren’t exactly sure where Nemeth stands with them as they are beginning to side with the Brigade against Layfield but they are still very aware of Nemeth’s past in the WWE. At this point, however, most still don’t like him and boo him on his journey to the ring. Playing over the loudspeakers for the second time this evening is “300 Violin Orchestra” which is a nice change from the usual generic rock music that most of the stars enter to. Walking behind him is the figurehead of their uprising, Matt Striker, who gives Nemeth some coaching tips on the way to the ring. Once in the ring, the four superstars take to a separate corner as Neidhart and Striker exit the ring to opposite sides of the ring of one another. The four competitors wait patiently for the orders to begin the match.

    Fatal Fourway Match

    Mike Wesson vs. Heath Slater vs. Finlay vs. Nick Nemeth

    All four men are believed to be the more physical and brawling members of their tag teams so this match is expected to be slightly more violent than had it included the other halves of the team. The four men stand at the ready as the bell rings and it’s off to the races. The four rush to the center of the ring where they collide in a fury of punches and clubs to one another. They clobber each other until it becomes obvious that Slater and Nemeth are no match for Finlay and Wesson and they fall out of the fight. The Belfast Brawler and the Loaded Pistol beat the living hell out of each other until Finlay succumbs to the punishment and falls to the mat. Wesson looks around at the carnage that he caused as the last man standing. This becomes the order of the match. Wesson begins to decisively beat down the other three competitors, using his superior size and strength to his advantage. Mike begins tossing men around the ring with ease and their inability to work together gives him a perfect opening to punish them. He drives Slater hard to the mat with a neck cracking headbutt. Nemeth tries to sneak an attack on him from behind but has the taste knocked out of him with a wild blind haymaker. This leaves Finlay alone to try and subdue the redwood. Finlay sees the opening and takes it. He goes toe to toe with the larger opponent and begins slugging him with hard rights. He drives Wesson back towards the ropes and sends him back into them with a beautifully executed dropkick. With Wesson leaning against the ropes, Finlay rushes the opposite ropes and off the return he is nearly decapitated with a pumping boot to the face. The velocity and collision causes Finlay to fall hard to his back and roll under the ropes to the outside, completely unconscious.

    The execution of Finlay leaves the realization on Slater and Nemeth that they’re going to have to work together to get Wesson out of this match before they’ll have a chance. However, immediately following the kick to Finlay, the two men are the subject of punishment from Wesson, not giving either man an opening to team together against him. He begins to work on them and rush for an exit out of the match before Finlay can return and the three work together against him. Wesson grabs Slater by the arm and jerks him to his feet. He wraps an arm across his body and bends him backwards looking to execute his Pump-Action (Swinging Reverse STO). Just as he goes to jerk him backwards, Nemeth rushes out of nowhere and jumps up, grabbing the head of Mike and jerks him backward to the mat with a Jumping Reverse Bulldog. Nemeth realizes he hit the jackpot. He climbs over on top of Wesson and goes for a cover. Before the official even has a chance, the foot of Nick is grabbed and he is jerked off of Wesson. Nemeth sees that Slater managed to escape the Pump-Action just in time and broke up his pin. Forgetting any notion of working together, the two men begin working away at one another. Nemeth takes control of the match right away and is pounding away at the back of Slater’s head and neck hoping to soften him up for a reverse bulldog of his own. He quickly has to abandon his plan when he sees Wesson coming to and he tries to mount an offense against him. Slater realizes he needs to help Nemeth out if they’re going to survive this. They begin to work cohesively to chop Wesson down to size. The two men spend a couple of minutes working away at him, while on the outside Finlay begins to finally recover from the attack he suffered earlier in the match. Inside the ring, Slater grabs Wesson and locks on a full nelson and instructs Nemeth to head to the top rope for an attack. As Nick mounts the top rope, Finlay jumps up and jerks his foot. Nemeth is racked on the top rope and falls onto the apron and then to the outside. Striker rushes to his aid to check on him. Wesson then bends forward and rushes toward the turnbuckle, pulling Slater with him, face first into the top turnbuckle. Slater releases the hold and stumbles backward into the ring right into a Celtic Cross (Belly to Back Piledriver) from Finlay. As Finaly stands up, he is suddenly jerked around and grabbed by Wesson, who nails his Pump-Action finisher. Mike covers him for the pin. 1……….2……………3.


    Winner – Mike Wesson.
    As the match concludes, JBL jumps up in a fit of excitement and rushes into the ring and raises the hand of his own personal security force in a celebration of his win. His celebration is short lived as they turn around the ring and see Shelton Benjamin and Nick Nemeth standing in front of them.


    Layfield panics. He doesn’t know what to do. Striker is ordering the attack. Layfield shoves Wesson in front of him and tells him to do his job. The two men begin pounding away on Wesson as JBL runs back to his spot at the announcer’s table.


    David Smith enters the fray and comes in for the save of his partner. The four men continue to brawl around the ring until officials and security rush out of the back and separate them. Striker stands on the ring apron, looking down at John Layfield, smiling and telling him that it’s all falling down for him.

    Following the commercial break, advertising for the upcoming Night of Champions Pay-Per-View, the cameras open up inside the arena where the previously viewed chaos is now calm and silent, ready for the next segment of the night. “For Whom the Bell Tolls” by Metallica hits and every fan stands on their feet looking at the entrance.


    Triple H walks slowly onto the stage with a very somber look over him. His head is downward and he walks toward the ring without looking at the fans or anything else but the ground below him. He climbs up onto the ring apron and slips between the ropes. There is a microphone lying on the mat and he picks it up. Within seconds, his theme music fades and he stands motionless trying to collect his thoughts and express them to the fans.

    Triple H – “I’m not exactly proud of how my actions over the last couple of weeks. For a moment, I allowed myself to forget about what is important in life. I thought I valued the spoils of war over what carries a real value; family.”

    Triple H looks down at the World Heavyweight Championship he is holding. He stares at it for a moment, before tossing it to the floor.

    Triple H – “I can only hope that one day, my wife can forgive me for not being there for her, not protecting her, not being her husband. I’m sorry, Steph.”

    There is a quick moment where it looks like Triple H wipes a tear off of his face before he looks up, red eyed, and seems to clear himself of all negative emotions.

    Triple H – “And tonight, I look for my redemption. Undertaker, end this now! Return my wife and I will walk away from this, no questions asked. And this title at my feet; it’s all yours.”

    There is a long pause while Triple H waits patiently for the Undertaker’s response. Suddenly the video screen clicks on and we see a room, save for a chair in the center of the room where Stephanie sits unconscious and leaning, otherwise the room is empty. The lights flicker and we then see the Undertaker appear out of seemingly nowhere.


    The Undertaker – “Hunter, never fear; tonight, you’ll get your opportunity for redemption. Tonight, you’ll have the opportunity to set right all of the wrongs you’ve written. I won’t give you the satisfaction of having your wife back. It’s because of you that she ended up in the hands of a monster like my brother. But tonight, I’ll give you a onetime chance to take her place.”

    There is some confusion amidst the fans and Triple H after that comment. They look at the video screen, with nothing but questions running through their mind.

    The Undertaker – “I’m going to give you the power to return Stephanie back to her family. The same family that hasn’t stopped looking for her since she was abducted; no .. abandoned, by her husband. The choice will be yours, Triple H. Now, pick that title up; I’d say that you’ve earned it.”

    The Undertaker looks back at Stephanie and then reaches forward to cut off the camera. Back in the ring, we see Triple H with his head down, looking at the title on the mat. He reaches down and snags it by the edge of the strap and yanks it up off of the ring and turns to exit the ring. From there, we cut to the backstage area.

    The cameras go live in the backstage, where interviewer personality Maria Kanellis is standing by.

    Maria Kanellis – “HI! Maria here! Please welcome my guest at this time, KOFI KINGSTON!”

    Kofi Kingston walks onto the scene as Maria looks at him out of the corner of her eye. He joins her at her side.


    Maria Kanellis – “Kofi, before you say anything, let me just tell you that you’ve always been my favorite WWE Superstar. That boom boom thing you do; well, it gets me so excited.”

    Kofi Kingston – “Is that right?”

    Maria Kanellis – “You are a true innovator of high-flying action here in the WWE and seeing you in that ring, well, I get goose bumps. It’s a real honor to stand next to you.”

    Kofi Kingston – “Shut up. I can tell you’ve obviously been spending the night putting on your makeup instead of watching what’s going on out there, so I’d advise you to watch it on DVR when we’re through here. Until then, don’t treat your lips like your legs. In other words, keep’em closed.”

    Maria looks leveled by the thought of being insulted by one of her favorite wrestlers on the roster in her what-was-to-be shining moment interviewing him.

    Kofi Kingston – “I’ve got nothing to say to you, Maria. You represent everything that has been wrong with Kofi Kingston over the last couple of years. Appeasement. I’ve been doing everything I can to please the fans of the WWE and oh so little to please myself.”

    Maria wants to say something and tries to interrupt him, but he places a finger in front of her mouth and whispers softly, “Ssshhhh” to silence her.

    Kofi Kingston – “But what you’re witnessing here tonight is the transformation of a new Kofi Kingston. One that has my self-interest at heart. As of tonight, it’s about championships and not about cheers. It’s about getting paid and not about getting praise. Simply put, it’s about me and not about you.”

    Kingston hands Maria back her microphone and starts to walk off. She is in near tears and doesn’t know what to say. Fortunately for her, she doesn’t have to say a thing. A third person walks into camera view.


    The fans cheer wildly as they see the Commissioner of the Junior-Heavyweight Division making his return to the WWE. His eye is taped heavily with white tape and bandages from the shards of glass that cut it just a few weeks back when a light fixture fell from the ceiling.

    Dean Malenko – “Maybe I did make the wrong decision picking you over Roderick Strong. I thought when I had scouted you, I had picked someone with character, integrity, and a passion for entertaining these fans.”

    Kofi Kingston – “I’m no Evan Bourne.”

    Dean Malenko – “Obviously not.”

    Kofi Kingston – “Look, the fact of the matter is that you did choose me over Roderick Strong. And given the opportunity to take my spot, he came up short. And lucky for you, you now have someone with charisma and personality over the dead drone.”

    Dean Malenko – “You and I both know how you won tonight. The whole world saw you.”

    Kofi Kingston – “Yeah, everyone saw it. Everyone but the one person that mattered. The referee.”

    Dean Malenko – “You stole one here tonight. But you may not be so lucky next time. I may have my hand forced for me to keep Roderick Strong on the sidelines for this tournament to crown the first Junior-Heavyweight Champion. But my hands are only bound until then. I am officially declaring Roderick Strong the number one contender for the Junior-Heavyweight Championship.”

    Kofi Kingston – “WHAT?”

    Dean Malenko – “Win lose or draw, it doesn’t matter which one of you win the tournament. The winner will first defend his title against ‘the Master of the Backbreaker’ Roderick Strong.”

    Kofi Kingston – “Well Dean, that’s assuming that he can last that long.”

    Malenko scowls at Kingston as they come to a stalemate.

    Kofi Kingston – “BOOM!”

    Kingston begins to walk off, but he stops in his tracks and takes a few steps back toward Maria and Malenko.

    Kofi Kingston – “BOOM!”

    Kingston smiles and walks off, leaving his interviewer and commissioner standing motionless in disbelief of this new attitude. We cut back to ringside for the next match of the evening.

    The cameras open up back inside the arena. “The Good Life” by Three Days Grace is playing and we are met by the newly formed team of Nick Dinsmore and Chris Masters, who are walking to the ring to one of the most heated reactions of the night.

    John Layfield – “There they are. Two young studs who have a lot to prove and it looks like they are going to do so at the demise of John Cena.”

    Todd Grisham – “There assaults and targeting of Cena is certainly a tall order but everything I know about these two is that they have the will, determination, toughness, and strength to pull it off.”

    John Layfield – “For the last three weeks, Dinsmore and Masters have had Cena’s number, finding a way to lure him in and beat him within an inch of his life.”

    Todd Grisham – “Tonight, the numbers game won’t come into effect. Two on one, becomes two on two when R-Truth joins his good friend, John Cena to exact revenge on these two for their crimes from last week.”


    Dinsmore and Masters step into the ring and snatch the microphone from the ring announcer to tell the world their story.

    Nick Dinsmore – “I’d like to tell you all a story. A story that spans back to nearly ten years ago. In two separate areas of the country, there were two young men who had never met and wouldn’t for years to come. Now these two men were rising stars in the world of professional wrestling. While they hadn’t quite broken through the proverbial class ceiling; many felt that it was imminent.”

    Chris Masters interrupts.

    Chris Masters – “They were primed for the big time. They had the looks, a way with words, and pure, raw ability in the wrestling ring. They were the future of this business. And slowly but surely they were making themselves known. It wasn’t long before the WWE would have to take notice of them and bring them in as the breakout stars they’d already created for themselves.”

    Back to Nick DInsmore.

    Nick Dinsmore – “But at that time, the WWE was leaning heavy on another new guy; John Cena. He was the man that would take the WWE into the next decade; whether the fans wanted him or not. And it was just that, the fans didn’t want him. They despised him. And the WWE kept shoving him down your throats until you either changed the station or changed your mind.”

    Dinsmore turns the microphone over to Masters.

    Chris Masters – “Cena knew that anything could threaten his position at this time. Anyone with a real talent for wrestling and a way with the fans could knock him off his corporate made pedestal. So when he saw these two young stars heading his way, he knew he had to do something quick or risk losing it all.”

    The fans see where this going and turn on the two.

    Nick Dinsmore – “Those two men? They are the same two men you see standing in this ring today. The WWE saw something in Masters and myself and they knew that if they didn’t sign us, someone would and they would miss out. But at the same time, they had invested so much money into John Cena’s image that they knew it would be a financial disaster to release us on the WWE, and even more so to have us target Cena.”

    Chris Masters – “Once we were locked into contracts, we were both made to look like fools on television. The WWE did everything they could to sabotage our careers before they could even take off. To get the job, Nick had to pretend to be mentally challenged and I had to feign injury after injury while I watched my spot on the show get shoved further and further into the corner, regardless of how dominate I was on television.”

    Nick Dinsmore – “And anytime we asked for just a pittance more; we’d always get the same answer, ‘management just doesn’t see any potential in you right now. Keep training and hopefully something will come up for you soon.’ Well we got tired of waiting. Tired of being held down and held back. These attacks we’ve professed onto you over the last couple of weeks, Cena. They are a long time coming. Nearly a decade in the making.”

    Chris Masters – “As you once confessed in rap, Cena; your time is up, my time is now. You were the WWE’s golden boy and they did everything they could to protect you. Those days are long gone. And now it’s our turn. We’re going to make the name for ourselves that you wouldn’t let us have six years ago and we’re going to do it at your expense. In your blood.”

    Masters toss the microphone down, even though the ring announcer was standing right next to him. Justin Roberts picks up the microphone in order to announce the next match of the evening.

    Justin Roberts – “Ladies and gentlemen, the next match is scheduled for one fall. Introducing first, weighing in at combined four hundred and eighty-nine pounds, the tag team of the ‘Masterpiece’ Chris Masters and Nick ‘the Ripper’ Dinsmore!”

    “The Time is Now” hits and John Cena rushes out of the back with a blast of pure excitement from the fans. Cena has a smile stretching from ear to ear as the roar of the crowd gets him pumped. He stops at the edge of the entrance stage and looks down at his opponents. He pauses at the top of the ramp and goes to salute the fans but turns one hundred and eighty degrees mid-salute to salute the entrance of his tag team partner.

    Justin Roberts – “And their opponents, at a combined weight of four hundred and seventy-five pounds, the team of John Cena and R-Truth!”


    “What’s Up” hits over the PA system and the fans cheer frantically as R-Truth appears at the back of the entrance stage. He is rapping “What’s Up” for them and dancing. Suddenly, his pyro explodes, but tragically they were misaimed and explode right in the face of R-Truth. Truth slams onto his back with the explosion of the pyro. He lies motionless on the steel. The only movement is a small flame that is attached to his shirt. When the shock of the incident wears off, Cena pulls his shirt off as he rushes to his friends aid. He uses his own shirt to beat out the flames from Truth’s own shirt.

    Todd Grisham – “Oh no.”

    John Layfield – “What the?”

    Paramedics rush out of the back to check on Truth who is unconscious. Cena can’t believe his eyes. Trainers and officials run out of the backstage area to get control of the situation. Right in the center of the mix is Matt Striker. By this time, General Manager John Layfield is standing near the incident and Striker is accusing him of his usual unsafe work conditions; never ceasing on any catastrophe to capitalize for himself. With the crowd in silence, we cut to a commercial break.

    The cameras open up after a brief commercial break while paramedics were attending to R-Truth. At this time, Truth has been rolled onto a stretcher and is still not moving. His clothes are peppered with holes caused by fires from the pyro. His skin has small welts and blisters showing from the burns. Cena stands just a few feet away with his hands on his head and mouth open in disbelief. The EMTs pick the stretcher up and begin to wheel him to the back. The fans are all standing, motionless and quiet in respect for Truth. Layfield is walking around the scene trying to get an assessment of what happened or could have caused this. Truth is pushed out of view and Cena begins to follow.

    Nick Dinsmore – “Hold it right there, Cena.”

    Cena stops in his tracks and slowly turns back toward the ring.

    Nick Dinsmore – “Where do you think you’re going?”

    Cena can’t believe the audacity of these two men to be talking to him after this incident.

    Nick Dinsmore – “R-Truth has found a way to coward his way out of his match. Where’s your excuse?”

    With every sentence, Cena seems to begin to lose control. His body begins to start shaking and his teeth are grit down.

    Nick Dinsmore – “Don’t be jealous of your friend for finding a way out of this match and leaving you high and dry.”

    Cena realizes that he can’t be suckered into their game and turns his head to them. Layfield exits the stage, leaving Cena the only man left behind.

    Nick Dinsmore – “That’s right, walk away. Just walk away.”

    Cena begins to walk toward the exit of the stage, abandoning his opponents.

    Nick Dinsmore – “You know, all of those different colored t-shirts you wear; purple, green, orange, red? I’m surprised you haven’t wore a yellow one to match the color of your spine.”

    John stops in his tracks. He turns slowly looking at his opponents. He looks down at his red t-shirt lying on the floor, it too covered in holes from putting out the fire on Truth.

    Nick Dinsmore – “Cena, I beg you not to come to this ring tonight. I’d hate to see both you and your friend leave here on a stretcher.”

    Cena’s had enough. His body begins to shake, and he screams out to the fans. He can’t take it anymore. He begins sprinting down the entrance ramp toward the ring.

    Two versus One Handicap Match

    John Cena vs. Nick Dinsmore and Chris Masters

    As Cena is running he looks up into the ring at his two opponents. He slides into the ring underneath the bottom rope and comes up running. He ducks down to avoid both of their clotheslines and punches that they throw wildly in his direction. He bounces off of the far ropes and flies through the air, connecting with both men’s shoulder with his own shoulders in a diving shoulder block that takes both of his opponents to the mat. The rage in Cena’s mind is driving him through this fight. He won’t allow either man mount an offense, much less fully get to their feet before he nails them with his quick offensive style. He pulverizes one with a clothesline that flattens him to the mat and turns and nails a haymaker, before running and bouncing off the ropes and driving the other to the floor with a one handed bulldog. Masters is the first to his feet and he is met with a kick to the abdomen. Cena applies a standing facelock and hooks his leg and hoists him up, driving him back down with a fisherman suplex. The crowd goes nuts. As Cena stands up, he sees Dinsmore running his direction and he quickly takes him down with a sitout hiptoss before jumping upward and posing for the fans. He rushes off of the far ropes and off of the return he brushes his shoulder before nailing a Five Knuckle Shuffle on the Ripper. Cena rolls to his feet and sees Masters walking around in a daze. Cena hits the bottom ropes and off the return he leaps and takes Masters down with a Lou Thesz Press and begins nailing him with hard rights to the head. John rolls off of his opponent and grabs him by the sides of his head and jerks him to his feet. He then pulls him towards the side of the ring and hurls him through the middle and top ropes to the outside. Masters lands in a heap and is not moving.

    Back inside the ring, Cena watches as Dinsmore slowly tries to get to his feet. He waits patiently behind him. Dinsmore turns around and walks right onto the shoulders of Cena, who lifts him up and drives him to the mat with the Attitude Adjustment! The fans are going wild as Cena looks to get his revenge here tonight. He rolls Dinsmore over and locks on his STF submission. Nick fights for everything he has but he seems to just be too far away from the ropes. He struggles to hang on and at the same time extend out to grab the ropes to get free but neither are working out for him. After nearly twenty seconds in the STF, he can barely survive in this condition, he finally gets a break. Suddenly Masters slides back into the ring and sneaks up behind Cena and slips his arms under Cena’s and jerks him upright off of the mat, locked into the Masterlock. Cena fights, kicking and jerking his body around trying to do anything he can to get out. Dinsmore is still out on the floor, in pain from the STF and Attitude Adjustment he just took. Masters fights to keep Cena in the center of the ring away from the ropes. John still has some fight in him and turns his body around like a tornado trying to free himself, but once Masters has his fingers locked together, they almost certainly aren’t going to come apart that easy. Cena finally establishes a game plan and he plants his feet on the mat out in front of him and pushes off, charging himself and Masters back first into the turnbuckle. Chris takes the brunt of the hit and he nearly loses control of the Masterlock, but it’s not enough. Cena takes a few steps out of the corner, dragging Masters with him, before he rushes him back into the corner. It’s working. Masters is losing control of the lock. Another corner shot. Another. Cena nearly has himself free. Then the life of Cena is nearly flushed from his body when he looks up to see Nick Dinsmore standing in front of him. Cena panics and tries everything he can to kick at Dinsmore and keep him away, but Nick just locks onto the legs of Cena and holds him to the ground like an anchor while Masters reapplies his Masterlock tighter and more secure and Cena nearly succumbs to the hold. As Masters applies pressure to Cena’s shoulders, Dinsmore begins pounding away on his chest, ribs, and abdomen, connecting with two dozen different punches to Cena’s unprotected body. Within seconds, Cena passes out from the pain and the official can’t help but to raise Cena’s hand three times in succession and it drops to the mat three times to his very own defeat.


    Winners – Nick Dinsmore and Chris Masters
    Todd Grisham – “A very emotional John Cena just had the fight of his life against two men and nearly came out on top. Unfortunately, the numbers game was just too much for John.”

    Inside the ring, Masters released his Masterlock and Cena falls to the floor, looking like a corpse. Masters tells something to Dinsmore before Chris picks Cena up by the arm and neck and holds him in position as Dinsmore applies a standing facelock and wraps Cena’s arm over his shoulder and hoists him up into the air and quickly snaps him back down to the mat with a textbook brainbuster. The fans are livid. They can’t believe what they have just witnessed. Dinsmore and Masters pose for the fans in the center of the ring, both with a foot placed onto the back of Cena, proving that they are once against dominate over the wildly popular superstar. From there, we cut to the backstage area.

    The show cuts to the backstage area where we see Matt Striker walking through a hall with a smile stretched across his face. Suddenly, he is grabbed by the collar of his shirt by the General Manager and pushed against a wall.


    John Layfield – “What the hell have you done?”

    Matt Striker – “Excuse me?”

    John Layfield – “Don’t b.s. me, Striker; I know you were behind this.”

    Matt Striker – “Sir, are you implying that I was somehow involved in that horrific accident out there?”

    John Layfield – “Involved? Orchestrated? You pick.”

    Matt Striker – “While I would say that R-Truth certainly had that coming; I’m afraid that it wasn’t at my hand.”

    John tightens his grip on the collar of Striker and shoves him harder against the wall. Striker responds, barely able to breathe.

    Matt Striker – “No that, that looks like faulty mechanical work on behalf of Monday Night Raw. You really should inspect the work that your technical crew does a little closer, John.”

    John Layfield – “I may not be able to prove it, but when and if I do, I’ll have your ass hung in that ring for what you’ve done.”

    Matt Striker – “John, I’m sure it was just an accident. I don’t think anyone could piece together how much you hate John Cena and by leaving him without a partner like that would just lead him to the slaughter to Masters and Disnmore.”

    John Layfield – “What?”

    Matt Striker – “Oh, well I guess that do now.”

    Striker looks into the camera and Layfield turns to look at it as well.

    Matt Striker – “I’ll be in touch.”

    John is left with his mouth wide open; unbelieving what just transpired. The cameras cut back to the arena where we are gearing up for the next match in the Junior-Heavyweight Tournament.

    We cut back to the arena where Todd Grisham is still the stand-alone announcer at the table, with Layfield around the arena doing his General Manager duties.

    Todd Grisham – “Well here we go with the first match of the second round of the Junior-Heavyweight Championship tournament. As it stands, The Miz leads the series with two wins, with CM Punk, John Morrison, and Daniel Bryan behind him with one win each. And trailing the pack is Evan Bourne and Kofi Kingston.”

    “Ain’t No Make Believe” hits and the crowd erupts as John Morrison makes his way out of the back. As he does, the cameras cut to a slow motion shot of Morrison walking out. He stops on the stage and raises one of his arms in the air as his hair blows in the wind. Behind him, two sparking pyros explode toward one another with himself in the center.

    Todd Grisham – “It doesn’t get more theatric than it does with John Morrison. The Shaman of Sexy is looking to tie up with his former partner, the Miz, tonight here.”

    Morrison climbs into the ring and stands at the ready for his opponent to come out. “Born to Win” hits, playing over Morrison’s music and the very energetic and very excited Evan Bourne races out of the back to the delight of the fans. He pauses at the edge of the entrance stage and throws up his peace sign into the fans as two pyros explode behind him, also “v”ing out from the base toward the crowd. He sprints down the ramp and slides into the ring with his opponent.

    Todd Grisham – “Evan Bourne remains winless here in the Junior-Heavyweight Division and he’s looking to change that tonight with an upset over John Morrison.”

    From the back, we see the second appearance of Dean Malenko of the evening. He still has bandages covering his eye as he walks slowly toward the squared circle. Once inside the ring, he takes a microphone from the ring announcer to address the crowd.


    Dean Malenko – “Ladies and gentlemen, the next match of the evening is scheduled for one fall with a fifteen minute time limit and is the first match of the second round of the Junior-Heavyweight Championship Tournament. Introducing first, to my right, weighing in at two hundred and twenty-four pounds… JOHN MORRISON!”

    John Morrison walks forward and shakes the hand of the Commissioner of his division before returning back to his corner.

    Dean Malenko – “And his opponent, weighing in at one hundred and eighty-three pounds… EVAN BOURNE!”

    Bourne mimics the movements of his opponent, by shaking the hand of Dean Malenko and returning back to his corner.

    Dean Malenko – “Gentlemen, you know the rules of the match. You can win by pinfall, submission, disqualification, or count-out and otherwise the match could end in a double count-out or disqualification. All disqualifications are declared by me. Respect the official and the calls he makes. Shake hands and at the sound of the bell, fight.”

    Junior-Heavyweight Open (15 Minute Time Limit)

    John Morrison vs. Evan Bourne

    The two men start the match by walking to the center of the ring and shaking hands out of sportsmanship. They take a few steps back and the bell rings and this one is underway. This is where the sportsmanship went out the window and the competitive nature of the two men takes over. The fans are torn down the center on which side they stand, and the match tests their allegiance to both men. They lock up with a collar and elbow and Morrison’s superior strength easily shoves Bourne to the mat. From there, Morrison uses his very unorthodox style to lead the way in his attack on Evan. The Prince of Parkour uses the ring ropes in many different and unusual ways in this attack. Early on, Morrison connected with a blindside knee to the head of Bourne that took Evan through the ropes and onto the ring apron. Morrison hops over the top rope to join his opponent on the apron. He pulls Bourne to his feet and knees him directly into the abdomen, causing him to double over. John applies a standing headscissors and flips him up into the air in a powerbomb position. However, instead of slamming Bourne down, he charged down the apron and leapt off of the apron and powerbombed Bourne back first into the corner post. The impact causes Bourne to flip wildly through the air and slammed onto the mat with a thud.

    Morrison landed squarely onto his feet and rolled back into the ring. A few seconds later the official begins a ten count on Evan Bourne who seems to be nonresponsive on the outside of the ring. As the count gets closer to ten, we see Bourne finally begins to stir before he starts to get to a knee. In the last second, he leaps off of his knee and slides underneath the bottom rope to save himself. Morrison, nearly tasting the win, hops on this opportunity and flips Evan onto his back to go for another pin attempt and once again he comes up just a split second from victory. Morrison is primed to end this one right now and grabs Bourne behind the ears and jerks him up from the floor and applies a standing STO lock and locks him back and springs backwards into a Standing Moonsault Sideslam. Unfortunately for Morrison, Bourne digs in and resists and on the flip, Morrison goes solo. John slams chest first into the mat with authority and to make matters worse, with his last ounce of energy Bourne takes two steps forward and jumps vertical and comes crashing down with a double knee drop into the back of Morrison. Evan was still unable to mount a major offense after the punishment he took during the match. Initially, the two men started regaining their strength about the same time and they lock up in the center of the ring; each grabbing the other by the neck and punching with their free fist. Morrison’s fists have a little extra punch to them and they rock Evan back into the corner. Morrison plants him there with a rocking elbow and retracts to the opposite side of the ring to mount his attack.

    John charges across the ring and flings himself into the air for a flying clothesline. NO! Evan ducks underneath. Morrison thinks quick and maneuvers himself so that he would slide between the middle and top rope onto the apron. He turns and starts scaling up the top rope. Bourne doesn’t think twice; he runs back to the ropes and steps up onto the second rope of the bottom running ropes and uses it to leap off of. He hops off of that rope onto the top rope of the right running ropes and springboards backward, twisting in mid-air to wrap his legs around the neck of Morrison (who had just climbed up to the top rope) and hurricanrana’s him off of the top. The crowd goes nut but Bourne has possibly rehurt his back after the pain he had suffered to it throughout the match. He comes up, sharply grabbing his back but he knows he can’t quit now. He stumbles back to the same corner and slips through to the apron before mounting the top, just the same as Morrison had done seconds before. He props himself up on the turnbuckle and awaits his opponent. John comes too and scrapes up to his feet and turns and walks directly into a Diving Double Knee Drop. From that landed position, Bourne attempts a pinfall but only comes up with a two. He rolls off of his opponent and stands back-facing him and nails a standing moonsault but once again has to settle for a two count. Evan realizes that he’s not going to get out of this that easy and grabs Morrison by a leg and an arm and drags him near the bottom right corner and returns to the top rope. He sizes up Morrison before he leaps off with AirBourne (Shooting Star Press). At the very last possible second, John rolls toward the corner and Evan crashes and burns in the corner. John grabs the middle rope and uses it to pull himself up to a standing position in the corner. He then grabs the top rope and leaps up into his Starship Pain (Splitlegged Corkscrew Moonsault). As he twists through the air, he gains a ton of momentum before he crashes down into the body of Bourne. He quickly jumps back on top of him and rolls Bourne up. 1………………..2……………………..3! Bourne kicks out just a half-second too late.


    Winner – John Morrison.
    Bourne’s inability to kick out of Starship Pain sends him lossless into the third round of the tournament and John Morrison now claims a tied position with the leader, the Miz. As we return to the announcer’s table we see that the General Manager has returned and is putting on his headset.

    John Layfield – “That was one heckuva match.”

    Todd Grisham – “Welcome back, GM.”

    John Layfield – “Nothing like watching two young studs beating the hell out of one another to get your blood pumping.”

    Todd Grisham – “Bourne walks away empty after going to the well, or top rope, one too many times.”

    John Layfield – “Both of these firecrackers have made a living off fighting on the edge of insanity and you can’t blame Bourne for going with what he knows. It just so happens that on this night, his opponent knew that top rope better than he did.”

    Todd Grisham – “Listen to the fans chanting, ONE MORE TIME! ONE MORE TIME!”

    John Layfield – “I have a feeling that this is not the last time that we’ll see these two fight.”

    John Morrison celebrates his win as his opponent rolls out of the ring and walks up the ramp toward the back, holding his head in pain. From there we go to commercial break before the main event of the night.

    As the cameras return from commercial break, we join up with the CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, Vince McMahon, in the backstage area of the arena. He is walking down a long hallway and turns quickly into a small entryway. There is a door that says “Triple H” on it. He doesn’t knock, he doesn’t announce himself; he just simply opens the door and walks in.


    Triple H – “Vince?”

    Vince McMahon – “Shut up.”

    Triple H is mid-thought and is cut-off.

    Vince McMahon – “Whatever he wants; you give it to him.”

    Triple H – “I don’t n…”

    Vince McMahon – “I don’t care what it is. You give it to him.”

    Triple H wants to get a word in, but his father-in-law won’t let him.

    Vince McMahon – “So help me, God, if you come back here tonight without her, you’ll experience the fullest extent of my wrath.”

    Triple H – “Listen..”

    Vince McMahon – “No, you listen. You got her mixed up in this, now you’re going to get her out. You’ve put her life in danger, and now it’s your turn. Do whatever it takes.”

    Triple H knows he isn’t going to win Vince over with whatever statement he makes. He just hangs his head, looking at the floor in embarrassment.

    Vince McMahon – “Whatever it takes.”

    Vince departs from the room and slams the door. Triple H stays unmoved on the chair he was sitting and doesn’t raise his head at all. The cameras cut back to the arena for the main event match.

    The cameras open inside the arena and the announcers remain silent on the Triple H/Stephanie McMahon situation as neither really wants to open that can of worms with all of the emotions still hanging in the air.

    Todd Grisham – “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to Monday Night Raw and what a main event do we have for you tonight.”

    John Layfield – “In thirteen days, Jack Swagger will defend both the Intercontinental and United States Championship in two matches against Christopher Daniels and Muhammad Hassan; but here tonight they will both have an opportunity to inflict some punishment to him and break him down before their respective matches at Night of Champions.”

    Todd Grisham – “As an added bonus, the man who scores the winning pinfall or submission in this match will be given the week of next week, whereas his opponents will both be placed into matches.”

    John Layfield – “The incentive is to do well, let’s see which one of these three has the fortitude to get it done.”

    The ring announcer climbs into the ring and prepares the crowd for the final match of the evening.

    Justin Roberts – “Ladies and gentlemen, the next match is the MAIN EVENT and it will be a TRIPLE THREAT MATCH! In this match, the person who scores the winning pinfall or submission will be given the night off next week. Introducing first, weighing two hundred and forty-five pounds… MUHAMMAD HASSAN!”

    “The Salah Prayer” plays over the loudspeakers and it sounds just like the Islamic prayer that rings through loudspeakers in Iran to remind the Muslims to pray and the fans are already on hinge. They boo relentlessly as Hassan walks out of the back and drops to his knees and prays at the edge of the entrance stage. He finally climbs to his feet and walks slowly down the entrance ramp and climbs into the ring.

    Justin Roberts – “Weighing in at two hundred and twenty-four pounds… CHRISTOPHER DANIELS!”

    “Blue on Black” by Kenny Wayne Shephard plays and the fans roar with excitement as we watch Christopher Daniels marching out of the back as we get our first really impressive glimpse of Christopher Daniels in World Wrestling Entertainment. He poses at the edge of the entrance stage as the fans begin a “Fallen Angel” chant. He walks to the ring and joins his first opponent there.

    Justin Roberts – “And last, he is the reigning United States and Intercontinental Champion, weighing in at two hundred and sixty-three pounds… JACK SWAGGER!”

    “Get on Your Knees” plays and Swagger receives a mixed reaction from the crowd as he walks out of the back with each of his championship belts on either of his shoulders. He walks slowly down the ramp and lays each belt on the ground in front of himself and begins doing pushups in front of them before popping up and snagging his titles and finishing the short walk to the ring. He climbs into the ring and hands off the two championships to the official who relinquishes them to the timekeeper. The official calls for the bell and this match is underway.

    Triple Threat Match

    Jack Swagger vs. Muhammad Hassan vs. Christopher Daniels

    The match kicks off with all three men facing one another, keeping their distance, in the center of the ring. They have their guards up, looking for either of the two opponents to attack them at any time. They start to close in on one another, cautiously. Finally, the instincts of Daniels and Hassan kick in and they both attack Swagger. Daniels knows that any damage he can inflict on Swagger now will just slow him down in their singles match; even if that means he has to work with Hassan. The two men beat down on Swagger like a pack of hyenas; stomping, kicking, punching, and clubbing him to the mat. Swagger doesn’t stand a chance of survival in this mayhem nor does he see an immediate way out of it. He tries to swing them off with wild fists in every direction, but their mounted attack on him doesn’t relent and he finally succumbs to the situation. Hassan gives Daniels and order to back away and this gives Hassan enough breathing room to take the very damaged Swagger and flip him over and lift him up at the waist and apply his very dangerous Camel Clutch. Hassan rears back as hard as he can and tells Daniels to do something. There is a long pause before Daniels whips off of the far ropes and returns with a flying delayed dropkick that nails Swagger square on the face. Daniels stands upright and we see that all of the life in Swagger had been drained quickly. The official realizes that Swagger is in no position to submit and grabs his arm and raises it up. It falls. Daniels whips off the ropes again and goes for another flying delayed dropkick; only this time he nails Hassan square on the cheek knocking him off of the back of Swagger before the official could get a three consecutive count out of him to call for the match.

    Hassan rolls to his feet and walks right into a European Uppercut from Daniels. Another! Another! Hassan doesn’t go down, but is rocked heavily by each one. Daniels connects with a fourth uppercut and Hassan bounces backward into the ropes and stumbles forward onto the shoulders of Daniels, who hoists him up and drops him to the mat with a Death Valley Driver! Daniels flips him over for a pin attempt but comes up just short. At that point, Chris takes control over the match, taking aim at the neck and shoulder region of Hassan, while Swagger has managed to crawl out of the ring and lies motionless on the floor. At one point during the fight, Daniels managed to lock on a crossface and nearly forced a submission from his opponent, before Hassan scraped his way to the edge of the ring and snagged a rope to break the submission. Daniels assault didn’t stop there; he picked Hassan up and applied a standing headscissors and flipped Muhammad up into a powerbomb position but let him slip down his back a little and held him up in a crucifix position. Daniels then charged across the ring and flung Hassan shoulders and neck first into the second turnbuckle pad. Daniels raced across the ring and off of the return he flew knee-first into the shoulder of Hassan. Muhammad stumbled out of the corner, only for Daniels to sneak up behind him and drive him to the floor with a neckbreaker. Daniels realizes that he is in perfect position and turns back to the corner, grabbing the top rope and hopping up onto the second rope, springboarding up onto the top and nailing his BME (Best Moonsault Ever)! Daniels backs up away from Hassan waiting for him to get up, and signaling for the end and his Angels Wings finisher. As Hassan is barely moving, Daniels is startled when Swagger jumps up behind him and picks him up from behind with an Olympic Slam and drives him hard to the mat. Swagger makes a pin attempt. 1……………….2………………………… NO! Hassan makes the save for himself with his last ounce of energy.

    Swagger knows that if he stays in the ring, he will have to fend off both men and he jumps through the ropes back to the outside, leaving Hassan alone in the ring with Daniels. Hassan wants to chase after Swagger but he sees the perfect opening to get some revenge on Daniels. He snags him up by the head and drives him hard to the mat with a snap suplex. He picks him up quickly and drives him sharply back to the mat with another suplex. Each passing suplex, in the mind of Hassan, he is preparing Daniels for his Camel Clutch submission, twirking the neck and shoulders of Chris. He then pounds him to the mat with a devastating powerslam. He tries a quick pin that comes up empty for Hassan and he doesn’t waste a second. He snags Daniels by the ribs and pulls him to his feet and wraps his arms around his waist and hoists him up into the air and drives him hard back to the mat with a German Suplex. He picks him up and delivers a second German. And then a third. And then he lifts him up into a standing facelock before he jerks him around into a swinging neckbreaker. Daniels is holding his neck in pain after the damage he had sustained from Hassan. For the next couple of minutes Muhammad would continue to work on the head, neck, shoulders, and upperback of Daniels prepping him for the grand finale. During this time, Swagger scouts the two from the outside. Hassan has finally had enough and rolls Daniels onto his chest and applies his second Camel Clutch of the match. He watches Swagger on the outside who knows he has to do something. Finally Swagger jumps up on the apron and Hassan leaps forward hitting him with a forearm to knock him off the apron. Swagger jumps up and tries to slide into the ring, only to be met with a couple of stomps to his back from Hassan. Finally, Swagger succumbs and rolls back to the floor. Hassan turns his focus back to Daniels and walks over to lift him up again, but this time Daniels grabs him by the arm and jerks him down into a quick rollup! 1…………………..2…………………………. NO! Hassan kicks out. Muhammad stands upright and begins stomping away at Daniels. He keeps an eye on the position where he left Swagger, to make sure he won’t be attacked again. However, we see Swagger slide underneath the ring apron, staying low so Hassan can’t see him. Hassan stands over the body of Daniels and picks him back up into another Camel Clutch. He rears back and Daniels goes black. The official raises his hand once. It falls. He raises it a second time. It falls. He grabs it a third time, but suddenly from behind, Swagger grabs the head and arm of Hassan and charges him into the bottom right corner and tosses him between the ropes, shoulder first into the turnbuckle post. Hassan falls out of the ring and Swagger returns to the body of Daniels and wraps him up tightly for a pin. 1………………….2………………………….3!


    Winner – Jack Swagger.
    Swagger can’t believe he pulled it off. He celebrates in the ring with his two title belts as Hassan his sitting on the outside holding his shoulder in pain and Daniels is barely moving in the ring.

    Todd Grisham – “Even though he spent the majority of the match on the outside of the ring, Jack Swagger finds a way to escape with the win.”

    John Layfield – “Jack Swagger’s time on top is coming to and end.”

    Todd Grisham – “That’s not the only thing coming to an end. When we return from this commercial break, we will wrap up this show with Triple H as he confronts the Undertaker.”

    The shows goes to commercial break with Jack Swagger posing in the corner with his two title belts high in the air.

    We return from commercial break and the entire arena is in a very somber mood. We see Triple H standing in the center of the ring; no music playing, he is just standing there. He is holding a microphone and staring at the floor.


    Triple H – “Alright Undertaker, you wanted this. Now let’s finish it.”

    The lights to the arena goes out. The usual smoke and mirrors effects of the Undertaker fills the building. Lightning effects erupt with every other second as a slow fog fills out of the back. We finally see the Undertaker as he walks out of the back, dragging a bound Stephanie McMahon behind him. Her hands are bound and she is drug kicking and screaming by those same bound hands.


    The Undertaker stops at the edge of the entrance stage. He picks up a microphone off of the stage and addressed Triple H.

    The Undertaker – “Our time is running out, Hunter. I had hoped we could have prolonged this, but it seems that wheels of fate are moving much faster than I had originally thought.”

    Realizing that Stephanie is so close that he could charge up the ramp and save her, Triple H quickly jumps through the ropes but he is stopped suddenly.

    The Undertaker – “DON’T DO IT, HUNTER! DON’T .. DO IT!”

    The Undertaker has snagged Stephanie by the throat and lifted her up, threatening to chokeslam her off of the stage if Hunter progresses.

    The Undertaker – “I told you that tonight I’d give you the chance to redeem yourself in Stephanie’s eyes. The last thing you want to do is ruin it by doing something stupid.”

    Triple H steps back into the ring and waits patiently. The Undertaker lowers Stephanie back down to the stage and we see her crying.

    The Undertaker – “Right now, I’m going to give you a one time opportunity to make everything right. But it won’t come without sacrifice.”

    We then see a line of druids walk out of the back. They are carrying a large representation of the Undertaker’s symbol and marching toward the ring. They stop at the foot of the entrance ramp, facing Triple H.

    The Undertaker – “Tonight, I’m going to sacrifice someone. Whether it be you .. or your wife, doesn’t matter to me. However, I’m going to give you the choice. You can send your lovely wife to the cross and walk out of her untouched with your World Championship. OR you can save her and sacrifice yourself.”

    There is confusion in the eyes of Triple H. He is breathing heavy, knowing the decision that is on his mind.

    The Undertaker – “If you choose to save her, I will let her go and you have my word that she will never see me again. She is free to return to her loving family.”

    Triple H falls onto his knees, barely able to keep breathing. His heart is racing.

    The Undertaker – “The choice is yours, but it must be made now.”

    Triple H sits back onto his feet and looks up, holding his microphone up to his face.

    Triple H – “I’m sorry Steph. TAKE ME!”

    The Undertaker – “SO IT IS DONE!”

    Triple H climbs out of the ring as the druids grab him and drag him to the Undertaker’s symbol and begin to tie him up to it. Stephanie is screaming and begging for them not to do it, but Undertaker won’t let go of her. The druids tie Triple H off to the symbol and prop him up against the ring. The Undertaker releases Stephanie and unties her hands. She begins to run down the ramp but she is cut off.


    Vince McMahon – “NO STEPH! He made his decision.”

    Vince grabs Stephanie by the waist and pulls her to safety. There is a long pause as the Undertaker looks down from the stage onto Triple H who is tied to the Undertaker’s symbol. Finally, the Undertaker marches down the ramp. Triple H is completely bound and can’t move at all, save for his head. The druids make a path that the Undertaker walks down the center of. He finally stands face to face with his opponent for Night of Champions and looks up at him on the symbol. Then out of nowhere, the Undertaker begins unloading on a helpless Triple H. He punches his exposed ribs and face, dozens of times. We cut to see Stephanie McMahon screaming and crying. He finally breaks loose of her father and begins to run toward her husband. He scream out at her.

    Triple H – “NO STEPHANIE! I have to do this. Go. Just.. Go.”

    Stephanie stops as her father and WWE officials pull her to the back and to safety. Vince stands on the edge of the stage watching the Undertaker brutalize his son-in-law, at first in satisfaction to repay him for what he did to his daughter, but soon showing compassion toward him for how bad the punishment is. Soon, Triple H is bleeding from the face and it drips down his body. Just when we thought the Undertaker had inflicted enough damage, he walks off, only to lift up the ring apron and pull out Triple H’s sledgehammer. The Undertaker holds it up in the same manner that Triple H would before using it on an opponent.

    The Undertaker returns to the suspended body of Triple H and begins unloading on him with his own sledgehammer. He delivers some quick jabs to the ribs and Triple H cries out in pain. He then rails him with two hard jabs to the face. The Undertaker is satisfied in his actions, but still takes two steps back and holds the sledgehammer by the lower end of the handle and swings it hard right into the exposed ribs of Triple H. By this time, Triple H is unconscious and barely moves; he just hangs motionless from the Undertaker’s symbol.

    The Undertaker backs away from his victim and orders his druids to take over. They grab the symbol and pick it up so that it rests on their shoulders, with Triple H facing the sky. They walk back a few steps so that the symbol is next to the ring. The Undertaker then climbs up onto the ring apron and walks down next to Triple H’s body, before he steps off of the ring apron onto his symbol. He plants a knee onto the chest of Triple H and rests high over his lifeless body. The druids then carry the symbol with Triple H tied to it and the Undertaker riding on top of Hunter’s body toward the exit. The Undertaker’s music plays as the lights go out and a lone spotlight shines down on the druids and symbol. The Undertaker holds the sledgehammer high into the air as they are walked out of the arena with Vince McMahon watching in pain. The show goes off the air with the last images of Undertaker riding over the corpse of Triple H fade into nothing.

    Monday Night Raw – May 23, 2011



    The sixth edition of Monday Night Raw under the helm of General Manager, John “Bradshaw” Layfield, properly titled PoweRaw kicks off with a music video featuring “Burn it to the Ground” by Nickelback. The video kicks off with some generic action involving some of the WWE Raw Superstars from John Cena to Triple H, and the Junior-Heavyweight Roster, and some of the Tag Teams that comprise that division, as well as some of the highly profiled rookies on the roster.

    “We got no fear, no doubt…”

    We then transition over to some of the feuds that deepened last week, starting with Nick Dinsmore and Chris Masters talking about how John Cena held them back six years ago when they came to the WWE and now they’re going to take him out and reclaim what should have been theirs to begin with. When Cena and R-Truth entered, a mistimed pyro exploded on Truth causing Cena to have to fight the tormentors himself. In the handicap match, Cena succumbed to the MasterLock and after the match took a beating from both men before being dropped on his head with a brainbuster.

    “…all in, balls out!”

    The show would kick off last week with Kane arriving at the Leavenworth, Kansas Federal Penitentiary. On the steps of the building, he announced that someone was in the prison and he would help unleash this man on the WWE. He said that he was coming soon and that everyone would need to be ready for it. Kane was then arrested by the prison guards and taken into the prison.

    “We’re going off tonight…”

    Once again, the Striker Brigade would make a statement. Matt Striker told the world that John Layfield was responsible for not keeping his employees under control and because of him the safety of the Department of Labor employee was jeopardized last week. Matt Striker said he couldn’t help but wonder who would be punished next for John Layfield’s unsafe work conditions. Moments later, R-Truth would suffer burns from a mistimed pyro explosion and Layfield would accuse Striker of sabotaging it just to get back at him. Striker pushed the blame back onto Layfield.

    “…to kick out every light! ”

    Jack Swagger has a tall order at Night of Champions, two matches each defending one of his two titles. Last week, he faced an even taller order; he had to fight both of his pay-per-view opponents in a triple threat. When both Daniels and Hassan targeted Swagger, Jack would exit the ring. After Muhammad Hassan and Christopher Daniels dismantled one another, Swagger jumped back into the ring to steal the win from both of them. Will he be as successful in six nights when he has to fight them individually on the same night?

    “Take anything we want!”

    In the first of two match, one half of each tag team participating in the Tag Team Turmoil Match at Night of Champions, competed in a fatal fourway. Mike Wesson flexed his muscle around the ring, taking on all three of his opponents. When the three teamed up against him, Wesson was able to sit on the sidelines and return at the right moment to capitalize on the situation to get the win. With Finlay, Nemeth, and Slater out of it, Wesson didn’t even see the attack from behind from Benjamin coming. Benjamin and Nemeth would assault Wesson until David Smith made the save.

    “Drink everything in sight!”

    In the first match of the evening, Kofi Kingston would put his spot in the Junior-Heavyweight Title Tournament on the line against Roderick Strong if the Strongman could beat him. When Kofi accidentally knocked down the official, Strong would be distracted long enough for Kofi to get a steel chair and return to the ring. Kofi slammed the chair to the mat, causing a loud sound to echo throughout the arena. As Strong turned to see what it was, Kingston tossed the chair to him and fell to the floor. The official also turned to see Kingston knocked out and Strong holding the chair; disqualifying Strong. Kofi would then attack Strong with the same chair after the match. Kofi would declare a new Kingston who was in this for himself and not the fans, now.

    “We’re going ‘til the world stops turning…”

    The Junior-Heavyweight Title Tournament progressed into the second round when John Morrison took on Evan Bourne. Despite Bourne’s best efforts, John Morrison would pick up his second win in the tournament, tying him with the Miz for the lead position, with Daniel Bryan and CM Punk picking up second with just one win, and Evan Bourne and Kofi Kingston both now trailing the pack with no wins at all.

    “While we burn it to the ground, tonight!”

    Perhaps the most important feud came to a head last week when Triple H called out the Undertaker to return Stephanie McMahon to him. The Undertaker gave Triple H and option, sacrifice himself or save himself and let Stephanie be sacrificed instead. Triple H finally gave in and freed Stephanie, voluntarily allowing himself to be tied to a large representation of the Undertaker’s symbol. The Undertaker would then brutally assault Triple H with a crying Stephanie McMahon watching on. To conclude the punishment, the Undertaker would take Triple H’s own sledgehammer and deliver vicious unprotected shots to Triple H’s ribs with it. The final shot of the video recap is of druids carrying the Undertaker’s symbol towards the exit, with Triple H tied to it facing the sky unconscious, and the Undertaker riding on top of it, kneeled over Triple H with the sledgehammer high in the air.

    The cameras open up to the show, but for the first time, we don’t go live into the arena; instead we are treated to a pretaped segment. On the screen, the words “After Raw Last Week” flash and we see Raw starting with when we cameras stopped running last week.


    We see the druids carrying the Undertaker’s symbol that closely resembles a “T” with an “X” placed on top of it. Triple H is laying face-up on the symbol and his hands and feet are bound to it. The Undertaker is kneeled down with a knee on top of Triple H’s chest as if he had conquered the great Triple H. With one hand, he holds Triple H’s own sledgehammer high into the air. The druids carry the two on the symbol into the backroom. As they move down a long hallway, lights flicker on and off as they pass by them.

    The Undertaker – “The king is dead; long live the king.”

    Each person they pass is horrified by the sight. Triple H is bleeding out of his face and it drips onto the floor, leaving small pools of blood behind on the floor.

    The Undertaker – “THE KING IS DEAD! LONG LIVE THE KING!”

    There is a loud ruckus coming from the other end of the hallway and the cameras turn and we see a mob of men running towards the Undertaker and Triple H. Just about the entire locker room and EMTs, officials and trainers are rushing towards the two.

    The Undertaker – “Your king is dead. Let the mourning begin.”

    The Undertaker hops off of the body of Triple H and begins nailing anyone that can get within striking distance of him with the sledgehammer. The Prince of Darkness back himself away from the mob of men, using his weapon to keep distance between them. Suddenly, the lights in the hallway flash off and two seconds later, they flicker back on. Where the Undertaker one stood, there is just a sledgehammer. The druids that were carrying Triple H and the symbol are gone and the symbol is propped against the wall with an injured Triple H hanging from it.

    Vince McMahon – “GET HIM DOWN!”

    The men untie the Game and they carry him a few feet away where a stretcher is waiting with a handful of EMTs. The paramedics rush Triple H down the hallway. At the end of the building, an ambulance is waiting. They open the doors and push him quickly into the vehicle. They slam the door shut, slap the door, and within seconds the ambulance speeds out of the arena; leaving behind a couple dozen men watching in panic, wondering about Triple H’s condition. From there, the cameras go black and we open up for the hot open of Monday Night Raw in the arena.

    Default Re: WWE PoweRaw

    Inside the arena, the cameras open and we join the announcing team at the table. The General Manager, John “Bradshaw” Layfield is accompanied by the play-by-play announcer, Todd Grisham.


    Todd Grisham – “Hello everyone and welcome to MONDAY NIGHT RAW!”

    John Layfield – “Todd, I’m as excited as virgin on prom night, here. We’re just six days away from Night of Champions where we culminate a lifetime of dreams.”

    Todd Grisham – “I couldn’t express it any better myself, John. Every WWE Superstar dreams of being a champion and this Sunday that dream comes to a head with every championship on the line.”

    John Layfield – “WWE Superstar’s dreams? I was talking about myself, Todd. This is my dream coming to life; not theirs.”

    Todd Grisham – “How did I know that this was going be turned back to you?”

    John Layfield – “Is that lack of appreciation of the employment that I’ve given you that I hear in your voice?”

    Todd Grisham – “Certainly not. Ladies and gentlemen, at Night of Champions, Monday Night Raw will feature six matches, all with implications toward all five of the Raw Championships on the line.”

    John Layfield – “And as I eluded last week, tonight we will have an open…”

    John Layfield is cut off when the music of Dean Malenko hits and the Commissioner of the Junior-Heavyweight Division enters the arena to the delight of the WWE fans. One of Malenko’s eyes is still covered with bandages and tape from the injury he sustained a couple of weeks back when a light fixture fell from the ceiling.


    John Layfield – “If that was anyone else, other than the Shooter himself, I would personally fire them for interrupting me. But for Dean Malenko, I could let this one slide, and…”

    Todd Grisham – “Dean Malenko giving us a rare appearance for this…”

    John Layfield – “WHY DO YOU INTERRUPT ME? Give me the respect I deserve, Grisham.”

    Todd Grisham – “My apologies, John. I thought you were…”

    John Layfield – “Simply, Mr. General Manager is sufficient enough. No need to be informal.”

    The Commissioner of the Junior-Heavyweights climbs into the ring where he is handed a microphone from the ring announcer, where he addresses the crowd for the next match.

    Dean Malenko – “Ladies and gentlemen, the first match of the evening is scheduled for one fall, with a fifteen minute time limit, and is the second match of the Junior-Heavyweight Title Tournament. Introducing first…”

    “This Fire Burns” by Killswitch Engage hits and the fans immediately rise to their feet booing as the “Straight-Edge Superstar” CM Punk makes his way out of the back. Punk marches to the ring with the look of determination written on his face. He joins the Commissioner in the ring and prepares for action.

    Dean Malenko – “Hailing from Chicago, Illinois, and weighing two hundred and twenty-two pounds, he is the STRAIGHT-EDGE SUPERSTAR… CM PUNK!”

    Malenko walks over to Punk and tries to shake his hand but Punk snarls at him and tells him to get lost. Dean Malenko walks back to the center of the ring with a look of disgust on his face.

    Dean Malenk – “And his opponent…”

    “Save Yourself” by Stabbing Westward plays and the newly turned bad streak Kofi Kingston enters the arena to just as heated of a reaction as his opponent. Now in it for himself and having turned his back on the fans that made him popular, Kingston doesn’t even acknowledge them on his way to the ring. His entire demeanor has changed; not his former self with a look of disgust stretched across his face and for the first time in his career he enters without his “Boom! Boom!” pyro entrance.

    Dean Malenko – “From Ghana, West Africa, weighing two hundred and twelve pounds, THE LAST PRINCE OF GHANA… KOFI KINGSTON!”

    Malenko offers the same handshake to Kingston that he did Punk, but in the same manner, Kingston turns his head from him, shaking his head in shame of the Commissioner. Dean Malenko returns back to the center of the ring to address the two men.

    Dean Malenko – “Gentlemen, you know the rules of the match. You can win by pinfall, submission, disqualification, or count-out and otherwise the match could end in a double count-out or disqualification. All disqualifications are declared by me. Respect the official and the calls he makes. Shake hands and at the sound of the bell, fight.”

    The two men stand near the center of the ring, but neither man respects the rules laid out by the Commissioner and just stand there staring at one another with a look of anger and hostility. Malenko instructs the official not to call for the bell.

    Dean Malenko – “Gentlemen, you will respect the rules of this division. If you’re unwilling to shake each other’s hand, I assure you that I will award both of you a disqualification and you will both advance to the third round with a loss from the second. Am I clear?”

    Knowing that he is still winless in the Junior-Heavyweight Tournament, Kingston offers a handshake instantly, and after some reluctance, CM Punk agrees and also shakes his hand. However, they don’t instantly release the handshake and try a quick test of strength while staring a hole through one another before they release and return to their respective corners.

    Junior-Heavyweight Open (15 Minute Time Limit)

    CM Punk vs. Kofi Kingston

    The bell rings and the two men exit from their corner and walk slowly back to the center. The two begin sharing a war of words. Finally, CM Punk makes the first move when he takes a step back and raises his hands up and slaps them in the same manner that Kofi would have the week before and yelled “Boom”, mocking his opponent’s previous lifestyle. Then out of nowhere, Kingston slaps the taste out of Punk’s mouth. After the shock wears off, Punk returns a slap. The fans yell “BOO” after each one of them slaps the other. This turns in a slapfest between the two men as they exchange slaps between one another as each one echoes throughout the building. The experience is broken when CM Punk finally has had enough and delivers a wild kick right into the ear of Kingston that takes him to a knee. At that point, CM Punk takes full control over the match. He begins his assault directly targeting the neck of Kingston. The Straight-Edge Superstar utilizes a wide variety of different styles of neckbreakers to inflict a high degree of punishment to his opponent. From a spinning neckbreaker to Punk’s famous inverted facelock neckbreaker, Kingston’s neck is really stretched to the limit. Punk then begins utilizing different variants of the suplex to get similar results. As he floated over the suplex, Punk would drop quickly to make sure the blunt of the punishment landed on Kingston’s neck and shoulders and less on his back. CM Punk picked Kingston up for a delayed vertical suplex before attempting a three count that came up just shy for the win. After a quick snap suplex and then a quick snap powerslam that just narrowly missed dropping Kofi on his head.

    The match turned when Kingston was hoisted up onto Punk’s shoulders for an early win with Go To Sleep. However, Kingston managed to slip off of Punk’s shoulder and CM went right back on the attack by snagging him by the hand and irish-whipping him into the upper left corner. Punk charged behind him, hoping to get a surprise attack from behind. Kingston thinks quick and grabs the top rope and slingshots himself upward so that Punk would run underneath him. Kofi swings back down like a pendulum and plants both of his feet into the shoulders of Punk and pushes him forward. The momentum sends Punk between the top and middle rope with his shoulder slamming hard into the turnbuckle post. Kofi rolls to his feet as Punk stumbles out of the corner holding his shoulder and is nailed with a leaping knee smash into the same shoulder. As Punk lies on the mat, holding his shoulder in agony, Kingston begins stomping away on it like a shark that is attacking a wounded fish in a sea of fish. At this point, CM Punk’s defenses fail him and he succumbs to the punishment from the Last Prince of Ghana who makes it clear that he is going to pinpoint this shoulder and destroy it. Kofi relies heavily on his quick attacks comprised of kicks and knees to drive the attack home. Kingston started by snagging Punk by the head and yanking him to his feet and whipping him into the ropes and off the return, he drilled him to the mat with full authority connecting with a missile-like dropkick to the injured shoulder. Kingston shows some ruthlessness that he may have never shown in the squared circle when he delivered a devastating shoulderbreaker to add insult to injury. Kofi would nearly capitalize with a win when he delivered an armtrap bodyslam onto the shoulder that was in danger of being ripped off of the body of Punk by this point.

    The end of the match would come after Kingston’s assault is quickly snapped to stop by Punk. Kingston grabs Punk by the shoulder and tries to whip him back into a turnbuckle post in attempt to break his shoulder this time. Punker, however, saw it coming and leaped through the shove and flipped through the ropes onto the floor. Punk landed on his feet and Kingston reaches through the ropes to grab him but Punk snagged him by the hair and whipped his head into the side of the turnbuckle post. Kingston’s body goes limp and Punk slips back into the ring. Kofi turns around and rests back against the corner and looks up to see a flying CM Punk flinging himself through the air with a high knee to the head. Punk lingers in the corner and wraps his arm around the neck of Kingston and yells out, mockingly, to the fans, “BOOM!” before running out of the corner for a bulldog. But as Punk flew through the air with the bulldog, Kingston shoved off his attack and Punk came up empty. Kingston knew he needed to do something quick if he’s going to survive this. Kingston walks over to the bottom right corner and unties the top turnbuckle pad and tosses it to the floor. He walks past the official who starts yelling at him for his action. The official admonishes him for his actions before picking up the pad and taking it back to the corner to tie it back on. Kingston darts to the opposite side of the ring and quickly unties the pad from the top left corner. He grabs a staggering CM Punk and shoves him hurt-shoulder first right into the exposed turnbuckle. As Punk stumbles out of the corner, holding his shoulder, he is drilled by a flying Kofi Kingston who nails his Trouble in Paradise (Jumping Corkscrew Roundhouse Kick) that drills right into the damaged shoulder and pounds Punk to the mat. Kofi rolls over on top of Punk and makes the cover. The official returns back to the action. 1………………………….2………………………………3!


    Winner – Kofi Kingston.
    Kingston jumps up, celebrating his sneaky win. He laughs at CM Punk, who rolls on the mat holding his shoulder in certain pain. The celebration is halted quickly when the Commissioner, Dean Malenko, interrupts the moment.

    Dean Malenko – “Ladies and gentleman, as instructed in the pre-match rules, I have reserved the right to decide all disqualifications. So Kofi Kingston, you may have snuck your cheating ways past the official, but you didn’t get this one by me. So I’d like to announce, the winner of this match, as a result of a disqualification… CM PUNK!”

    Kingston is irate! He remains winless in the division even though he blamed his losing ways on his kindness toward his opponent and likeness for the fans. Now on the side of evil, Kingston still comes up with a loss. The winner, who looks like anything but, CM Punk rests on his knees, one good arm in the air, and holding his bad arm tight to his body. Suddenly, he is grabbed by the hair by Kingston and jerked off his knees and flung shoulder first into the turnbuckle post. Malenko jumps into the ring, separating Kingston from his winning opponent. Kofi smiles, seething at the loss, knowing that ultimately he may have come out the winner if Punk’s shoulder is permanently damaged. Kingston exits the ring as Malenko calls for trainers to come check on Punk. The Straight-Edge Superstar shoves them off with his good arm and slips through the ropes as we cut back to the announcer’s table.
