Fan Fiction Rules & Guidelines

THE RULES & GUIDELINES OF FAN FICTION


-There will be no flaming (insulting), spamming (making stupid, inane posts) and flame-baiting (luring someone into flaming you).

-You can't use deceased wrestlers. The only exception to this rule is if you're doing a federation that takes place in the 80s or something similar.

-Keep everything regarding your federation in one thread.

-There are three places where you can advertise a federation: in the thread of that federation, in your signature and in the Fed Thread. Nowhere else, if we find any advertising elsewhere, you will receive a warning for SPAM.

-Don't expect to get reviews from other people if you don't give reviews yourself. If you don't want any feedback to your shows, fine.

-Don't give feedback in the middle of a show. Posting in the middle of a show will result in deletion of your post and a warning for spam.

-You are not expected to leave a full on review of the show (though you can if you like). All you are required to do is to write a few comments with some substance behind them. This in no way shape or form means you can post one line reviews, they will be deleted and warned. So don’t post something like "Wow, great show! 9/10!".

-Even though it is creative writing, due to board rules we cannot allow racial and/or homophobic slurs/insults/etc. in your feds. This type of language will be warned immediately. And please note - racism is an automatic ban.

-Don't get mad when someone rips your show to pieces. Use the criticism in a positive way and use it to increase the quality of your federation. When someone insults you instead of giving good feedback, report that post to the Moderators.

-Don't bump your thread to the top if you've written nothing new in days. It just pushes other threads that are active down.

-If you're going to write a federation, put some effort in it. Stuff with horrendous grammar and spelling and no punctuation will be deleted. So will posts that only have ten or so sentences. They are regarded as spam. If you don't put effort into writing, don't even bother.

-If you're tired of your current federation and want to start a new one or return to an older federation, your current one must have at least four regular shows and a Pay-Per-View. This is done to prevent threads that have one or two posts in it. If you don't follow this rule, you'll be forbidden to start a new federation or return to an old federation for two weeks. If you make a fed within two weeks of the first one closing or return to an old fed, will we lock your thread, and it will not be opened for ANOTHER two weeks. For example, if you leave your thread on the 1st of the month and then make another one on the 10th, we will lock your new thread until the 24th. Two weeks from the opening of your new thread, remember that folks! For those whos fed follow the 'DVD Format' your fed must have contained at least four chapters in order to bypass the two week rule.

- Posters are now allowed a second fed, providing they have proven their commitment to their first fed. Permission to start a second fed will be granted from the moderating team. We will not consider anyone whose fed has not lasted at least two pay-per-views, however, this does not guarantee we will say yes.

- Two feds at a time Max.

- If you have two running at the same time, both must be updated a minimum of every 30 days. If this is not maintained without valid reason, one will be closed (poster's choice as to which is closed).

- If you abandon a fed/fed gets closed/etc., then you must wait until gaining permission again to start another second fed.

-You can also have one additional non-Fed related story in addition to your federation. This non-Fed has a two week rule, meaning you wait two weeks from the last post to post a new one.

-You do not need to contact WMS or RT to close a thread for you if you're moving on to a new project. Just let it drop to the bottom. We will also no longer be cleaning old threads for you -- start a new thread. Also, we do NOT delete threads. We keep them around for historical value.

-Spotlight of the Month: this is currently decided by the Power 10 Rankings. The winner is given the dubious honor of being the Spotlight of the Month. That Fed will be stickied for the entire month with the added extension “Spotlight of the Month” added to the end of their Fed Title.

-No more "I'll be starting a fed soon" or "more to come soon". Start your fed with substance or it will be deleted. And then you’ll have to wait two weeks to start another one.

-Plagiarizing is a serious offence and anyone caught doing so will be banned without warning.

-Multi-Participation Threads are banned for the time being, they descend into chaos too quick and quite frankly too much time is spent modding them.

-DO NOT post reviews of reviews, arguing with every person who reviews you. If you would like, after a substantial period of time, to reply to all reviews together, fine. Mindless bumps will not be accepted.

-Please note that all your shows and PPVs must take place in your thread not on a website elsewhere. Everybody else can write it here, so can you.

- The 20 Questions thread is a Question and Answer interview-like thread for the members of Fan Fiction. The “next” person to participate in the thread is chosen by the current person being interviewed. Please do not post asking to be next. The person before you makes that decision.

- Please do not post "get on AIM/MSN/Yahoo." If you want them to do so, send them a Private Message or Rep asking so. There is no need to waste a post doing so.

- General Discussion is banned from Fan Fiction. It was great while it lasted, but it was abused too many times.

-NO EROTIC LITERATURE!

Finally, a harsh reality for people: WMS and RT are the last word on a subject in FF. If we ask you, or tell you, to do something, it isn't a debate. At least not on the forum. If you have a problem, IM or PM one of us, and we will gladly sort it out.

Thank you.
The Fan Fiction Moderating Team,
WMS & RT

        • Re: ECW: The 2001 WWF buyout. (August's Best Thread!)


          September 20, 2001
          the Pyramid
          Memphis, Tenn
          Announcers: Michael Cole/Joel Gertner

          Smackdown opens up with The Boss, Vince Mcmahon making his way to the ring surrounded by his Quality Control unit(Test, Albert, The Wall, The Hollies), Chris Jericho, and WWF World Champion Kurt Angle.




          Vince Mcmahon comes out talking about the way Rob Van Dam attacked him on Raw earlier this week. Vince said that Rob Van Dam squandered a tremendous oppurtunity to be a prominently featured "Superstar" in the WWF.

          Vince officially announces that Rob Van Dam has been stripped of his WWF Intercontinental Championship title. Vince says that he needs to be able to trust his champions now more than ever in this critical time.

          Vince praises Jericho and Angle as his most trusted, loyal employees, and criticizes The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and Rob Van Dam as people that can not be trusted, and will regret their recent decisions down the road.

          All of a sudden the fans blow up when Rob Van Dam comes out to the ring.


          Rob Van Dam brings his WWF Intercontenintal title to the ring, and throws it to the ground at Mcmahon's feet.

          This is Van Dam's second WWF title to be stripped of him. Van Dam's Hardcore Title was stripped when he threw the belt in the trash, and requested a real championship belt to represent his efforts.

          Quality Control circle around Rob Van Dam as he tells Vince Mcmahon that he will do things his way. Van Dam tells Vince that he refuses to be watered down to fit in with the WWF.

          The fans pop when RVD tells Vince Mcmahon that he will be the real RVD, the same RVD that people fell in love with in ECW, "The Whole F#@&*%! Show!"

          Van Dam says that he will gladly give up the WWF Intercontenintal title, because he feels like he is better, and deserves more. RVD points at Kurt Angle's belt, and says that he is coming after it.

          Just as Quality Control act as if they are about to attack Rob Van Dam, Stone Cold Steve Austin comes out to the stage.


          Stone Cold says that everybody in the ring is on his list to get their asses whooped, including Rob Van Dam, who Austin says is on track to catching "The Whole F'n Ass Whoopin" the way he keeps running his mouth!

          Austin says that Vince Mcmahon is still at the top of the list, and will get his ass kicked like never before in his lifetime. Stone Cold then says that he is coming for Kurt Angle to get his WWF Championship back, and that there isn't anything that anybody can do about it, "And thats the bottom line, because Stone Cold Said SO!"

          Vince Mcmahon says that if Van Dam & Austin both want a shot at Kurt Angle's title so bad, he will set them against each other in a #1 contenders match tonight! Mcmahon says that the winner will get Angle at the October 21st WWF No Mercy pay per view!

          Austin vs RVD tonight for the main event!

          *****

          We return from the commercial break with Christian confronting Edge backstage. Christian tells Edge that he can still join the WCW to reunite with his former tag team partner, and that he should do it before it is too late.

          Edge says that it will never happen. Edge challenges Christian to defend his Unified Tag Team Championship against him & a partner to be announced later tonight. Christian accepts the challenge.

          Christian & Kidman will defend the Unified Tag Team Titles against Edge & a partner to be announced later tonight.

          *****

          Back to the Arena for our upcoming contest. The next match is a rematch of the WWF Light Heavyweight & WCW Cruiserweight title unification match from Summerslam. The Ultimo Dragon has been Steven Regal's assistant throughout the year. The Dragon jumped ship with Regal to join Shane Mcmahon's WCW in the Summer.

          The Ultimo Dragon is accompanied to the ring by Steven Regal, who joins the commentary team to promote Dragon's upcoming 4 Way Dance at One Night Stand. Dragon will face Chris Jericho, ECW top contender Juventud Guerrera, and the current ECW FTW champion, Rey Mysterio in an elimination style 4 Way Dance.

          Unified Cruiserweight Championship Match: Ultimo Dragon(C) vs X-Pac

          Summary:

          Much like their match at Summerslam, Ultimo Dragon stays one step ahead of X-Pac in the early stages of the match, evading all of his martial arts kicks. Dragon catches X-Pac with several fast, well placed leg kicks. Ultimo Dragon whips X-Pac into the corner, and lands his Handspring Elbow Smash, dropping X-Pac down to the mat.

          The Ultimo Dragon dazzles the crowd when he devastates X-Pac with his "Aztec Suplex", Belly to Back Cross Arms Suplex. Dragon then lands his highly impressive "Cancun Tornado", Off the Top Rope Corkscrew Moonsault for a 2 count.

          The Dragon pulls X-Pac up to whip him into the ropes, but X-Pac leapfrogs over Dragon, springs off of the ropes, and drills him with his Spinning Heel Kick.

          X-Pac sets Ultimo Dragon up for his Bronco Buster, but Dragon moves out of the way at the last second.

          Finish:

          The Ultimo Dragon stuns X-Pac with a "Tiger Suplex", Double Chickenwing Suplex before locking on the "Dragon Sleeper", Inverted Facelock Hold.

          X-Pac fights the submission off, and refuses to tap out, but is soon put to sleep with the lethal hold.

          X-Pac is choked completely unconscious with the Dragon Sleeper. The referee stops the match, awarding Dragon the victory by TKO.

          Aftermath:

          The Ultimo Dragon celebrates with his Unified Cruiserweight title as X-Pac remains out cold in the center of the ring. Steven Regal continues to promote One Night Stand as we cut away.

          *****

          We cut away from the Arena to a backstage promo from Matt Hardy. Matt lost a match to his brother Jeff on Raw, and stands in front of the camera with a leather strap in his hands, slapping it across his hand as he talks.

          Matt tells a story about how Jeff Hardy used to blame things on him when they were kids growing up. Matt says that whenever he would get in trouble for things that Jeff did, he would get hard spankings from their father with a leather belt. Matt says that he refuses to be Jeff's "whipping Boy" anymore, and challenges him to a Leather Strap Match for next week on Raw to return some of the punishment that he recieved when they were kids.

          It has been set for next week's Raw, Matt & Jeff Hardy will face off again, this time in a Leather Strap Match!

          *****

          Back from the commercial break and we join both of our competitors already in the ring for our next contest.

          Mike Awesome has been picking up steam with the crowd after destroying both Shawn Stasiak & Sean O'Haire. Several fans in the crowd hold up signs saying "Fear The Mullet!".

          Mike Awesome vs Kanyon

          Summary:

          Kanyon is quickly overwhelmed by Mike Awesome's ruthless speed and power. After taking a beating in the opening seconds, Kanyon is knocked out of the ring to the outside.

          Mike Awesome gets a running start, and flies through the air over the top rope, nailing Kanyon with a splash nearly a full 5 feet away from the ring.

          Finish:

          Mike Awesome snaps, and powerbombs Kanyon through the Spanish announcers table, causing the crowd to explode.

          The referee signals for the bell to disqualify Mike Awesome, awarding Kanyon the victory.

          Aftermath:

          The fans all cheer Mike Awesome on regardless of the loss as he re-enters the ring, and folds the referee in half with a vicious "Awesome Bomb". The crowd loses it. Mike Awesome's popularity is on the rise as he has completely destroyed yet another WCW wrestler in under 2 minutes.

          *****

          We cut away from the Arena to another backstage promo, this time from Chris Jericho.

          Chris Jericho talks about how he was held down in WCW, even after running through their entire Cruiserweight division. Jericho says that he unmasked almost all of WCW's cruiserweights. Chris Jericho goes on to say that he will unmask all 3 of the wrestlers in his four way dance one by one after single handedly eliminating each and every one of them this Sunday Night.

          Chris Jericho continues saying that he carried every single WCW pay per view he was ever on, and that this time will be no different.

          *****

          Back from commercial break and The Giant comes out for the next match to tremendous boo's. The Big Show joined Shane Mcmahon's WCW at Invasion, and promptly changed his name back to The Giant. Shane Mcmahon accompanies The Giant to the ring, and joins the commentary team to promote WCW One Night Stand.

          The Giant vs Rikishi

          Summary:

          The Giant comes in showing zero mercy for the massive samoan. The Giant tosses Rikishi around the ring like a ragdoll before devastating him with a sick splash.

          Finish:

          The Giant rips Rikishi up for a violent Chokeslam, pinning him after only 1 minute.

          Aftermath:

          The massive monster looks primed and ready for his match against Mike Awesome at One Night Stand. Shane Mcmahon continues to plug away for the WCW One Night Stand pay per view this sunday night as we cut away to commercials.

          *****

          Back from our commercial break, and we have Michael Cole hosting a special side by side interview with Chris Benoit via sattelite from his home in Canada, and Booker T via sattelite from his home in Houston.

          vs

          Michael Cole asks Benoit about how his training and recovery has been for this match, and if his neck will be a factor. Benoit replies by saying that he knows what kind of fight Booker T will bring to Atlanta, and that it has driven him to train harder than he has ever trained. Benoit says that his neck is fine, and that he is in the best shape of his life.

          Cole then asks Booker T about his involvement in Shane Mcmahon's WCW, and what, if anything, this match will mean as far as the ongoing war between WCW & WWF.

          Booker snaps back at Cole saying that this 2/3 falls match will not have anything to do with WCW or WWF, and that it will be all about Benoit vs Booker T. Booker T reiterates that the match will be all about respect. Respect for Chris Benoit, and the self respect that he lost after losing his WCW title to The Rock at Summerslam.

          Booker T says that he has something to prove to himself with this match. He needs to know if he still has it, and what better way to find out than by going toe to toe with Benoit again.

          The two men finish the side by side interview by saying that they both have a tremendous amount of mutual respect for each other, but at the same time they will both be gunning for the victory at One Night Stand.

          *****

          We return from a brief advertisement for the upcoming October 21st WWF No Mercy pay per view, and Edge gets a massive pop from the crowd when he makes his way out of the back by himself.

          The current Unified Tag Team Champions, Christian & Kidman, both make their way to the ring with mixed reactions.

          Unified Tag Team Championship Match: Christian & Kidman(C) vs Edge & ???

          Summary:

          Edge starts the match off solo, facing off with Billy Kidman at first. Edge fights Kidman with aggression, trying to get his revenge for the two losses he suffered at Kidman's hands over the Summer. Edge gets Kidman with a series of Arm Drag Takedowns, Hip Tosses, and Drop Kicks to start the series off. Edge then puts Kidman into a Fujiwara Armbar, cranking on his arm while staring up at his brother Christian. Edge hits Kidman with a flying guillatine legdrop, and then sneaks over to the corner to knock Christian off of the apron with a stiff punch.

          Christian falls down to the outside adjusting his jaw, angered by the surprise attack.

          Edge lifts Kidman up into a vertical suplex, slamming him down into the mat with explosive aggression. Edge then runs across the ring to his Christian on the outside with a dive through the ropes.

          Both men lay sprawled out on the outside for a moment before Edge starts punching Christian with furious anger. Christian fights back and the two men roll around fighting each other violently as Billy Kidman recovers in the ring.

          Edge and Christian bring the fight to their feet on the outside, pulling each other's hair and gouging each other's eyes. Kidman recovers in the ring, and lands a Springboard Shooting Star Press Suicida onto both men. The crowd goes crazy as all 3 men lay sprawled out on the outside for a brief moment as the referee continues to count them out.

          Kidman and Christian recover, and double team Edge, kicking down on him as he lays on the mats.

          All of a sudden.....

          The Fires Of Hell Explode!

          Kane comes out walking slowly, lumbering to the ring like a monster.

          Kane violently slams both Christian and Kidman down on the outside with a double chokeslam before rolling Edge back into the ring to break the count. Kane picks Christian up on the outside of the ring, and drops him down across the steel ring steps.

          Kane then pulls Kidman up to roll him into the ring as Edge slowly recovers up to his feet in the ring. Kane beats Christian all around the ring slamming him into everything. Christian's forehead is busted open, covering his entire face in blood.

          Finish:

          Edge lifts Billy Kidman up, and gets his revenge by dropping him with the "Downward Spiral", Reverse Russian Leg Sweep. Edge pins Kidman to win the Unified Tag Team titles back from the WCW for the WWF.

          Aftermath:

          The crowd blows the roof off of the Arena as Edge holds up both Unified Tag Team titles in his arms. Kane slowly lumbers his way into the ring staring at Edge from behind, breathing heavily, and adjusting his gloves as if he is about to attack.

          Edge turns around to notice Kane in the ring, and extends his arm out to Kane offering him one of the Unified Tag Team belts. Kane tilts his head over to the side looking at Edge for a brief moment.


          The crowd goes crazy when Kane reaches out and takes the Tag Team title belt offered to him by Edge. Kane & Edge are the new Unified Tag Team Champions. Kane climbs out of the ring to return to the back as Edge resumes his celebration. Christian lays out of it on the outside of the ring bleeding profusely from his forehead.

          *****

          Back from more commercials, and the WCW Owner, Shane Mcmahon makes his way to the ring accompanied by Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, and the WCW People's Champion, Diamond Dallas Page.


          Shane Mcmahon reminds everyone of what is all at stake this Sunday Night at WCW One Night Stand. If the show meets its attendance & ppv buyrate quotas, WCW will be fully resurected on Vince Mcmahon's dime, with their own exclusive television show to run alongside Raw/Smackdown/ECW Uncensored as part of the WWF family of programming.

          Shane Mcmahon gives the spotlight of the promo over to Ric Flair, who goes on to talk about the proud history of WCW. Flair says that WCW was always more of a sport wrestling promotion than an entertainment promotion. Flair says that WCW always had the Wrestlers, whereas the WWF was always about the "Superstars". Flair begs and pleads with all of the hardcore, true, loyal WCW fans out there to come together this Sunday Night in Atlanta to support the new WCW.

          Flair goes on to say that he knows in his heart that the fans will show up, and that WCW will be resurrected to be stronger than it ever was. Flair says that the future of pro wrestling is in the hands of the fans to decide this Sunday Night at WCW One Night Stand.

          DDP gets the microphone to end the promo. Page says that no matter what happens, he thanks all of the WCW fans that stuck with the company even through the hard times. Page says that he will never forget them, and that he will be fighting for them this Sunday Night when he battles the current WCW World Champion, The Rock at WCW One Night Stand.



          *****

          Back from our final break, and we are set for out main event of the evening. The crowd goes crazy for the super over Rob Van Dam as he makes his way to the ring first.

          Van Dam came to the WWF in the spring, and quickly shot to the top. RVD won the 2001 King Of The Ring tournament, and soon won the WWF Hardcore Championship from Jeff Hardy at Invasion. After dropping the Hardcore title, RVD won the Intercontinental championship from Jeff Hardy in a Ladder Match at Summerslam. Rob Van Dam insisted on remaining neutral in the 3 way war between the WWF, WCW, and ECW throughout the Summer, saying that he wanted to remain focused on climbing up to one day becoming WWF World Champion. Van Dam's loyalty to the WWF was questioned by Vince Mcmahon throughout the late Summer. After disposing of several ECW alumni in August in order to prove his loyalty to the WWF, Vince called upon Van Dam for protection from Stone Cold Steve Austin on Raw earlier this week. Vince Mcmahon attacked Austin from behind just before Van Dam engaged in a fight with him. Mcmahon wanted Van Dam to further beat on Austin after his cowardly attack, but Van Dam refused. After being pushed too far by Vince, Van Dam won the crowd over by laying him out with a Van Daminator. Stone Cold Steve Austin recovered to notice only Van Dam standing in the ring, and promptly dropped him with a Stone Cold Stunner to end the show.

          Stone Cold Steve Austin comes out next to the loudest pop of the evening. Austin reverted back to the edgier, more violent Stone Cold after being screwed out of his WWF World Championship in multiple matches against Kurt Angle. Austin has pledged that Vince has awoken a monster, and that he will receive the final, and worst beating that he has ever received from "The Texas Rattlesnake".

          #1 Contenders Match: Rob Van Dam vs Stone Cold Steve Austin

          Summary:

          The crowd stays hot throughout the entire match, hanging on to every move from both men.

          Van Dam showcases his incredible athleticism early by evading several offensive attacks from Austin. RVD uses his superior speed and agility to sidestep several moves from Austin early on.

          Austin misses with a larait attempt, and gets drilled in the face with a Spinkick from Van Dam. Van Dam immediately springs up, and crashes down on Austin with his Corkscrew Legdrop, followed immediately by his Standing Backflip Splash. RVD goes for a pin, but only gets a 2 count.

          Van Dam pulls Austin up, and almost gets dropped with an early Stone Cold Stunner attempt from "The Texas Rattlesnake", but RVD quickly makes his way over to the ropes to hang on for dear life. Austin breaks the Stunner attempt almost immediately after RVD reaches the ropes, and clotheslines Van Dam over the top to the outside. Stone Cold follows Van Dam to the outside, and proceeds to brawl with him around the ring.

          Austin outbrawls Van Dam with stiff punches on the outside. Austin attempts to whip Van Dam into the barrier, but Van Dam reverses. Austin crashes into the barrier before collapsing down to the mats. RVD lifts Austin up, and picks him up into the Vertical Suplex position. Van Dam drops Austin belly first across the barrier before climbing up to the apron.

          Van Dam gets the entire Arena to say his name along with him as he points his thumbs at himself. Van Dam then flies off of the apron with his devastating Corkscrew Legdrop with opponent hanged on Guardrail. Austin falls over to the mats after Van Dam's leg crashes down across the back of his neck. Van Dam gets up, climbs up to the top of the barrier, and does a Moonsault Splash off of it down on top of Austin.

          A surprisingly loud ECW chant breaks out in the Arena.

          Van Dam rolls Austin back into the ring, and makes a critical mistake by wasting time high fiving his ringside fans.

          Van Dam re-enters the ring, and Austin immediately pounces on him with a "Thesz Press", Vertical Cross Body.

          Austin tears into Van Dam's face with a vicious flurry of punches.

          Austin then puts Van Dam into a submission hold he hasn't used on WWF television since his match against Bret Hart at the 96 Survivor Series. Stone Cold puts Rob Van Dam into the Bow and Arrow submission.

          Van Dam cries out loud in pain as Austin tries to break him in half.

          Austin gives up the hold, and targets one of Van Dam's knees with strikes. Austin grabs Van Dam by the legs, and places him into the Sharpshooter.

          Van Dam screams out in agony as Austin cranks back. Van Dam fights through the pain, and slowly but surely inches his way to the ropes.

          Austin keeps the Sharpshooter on Van Dam long after he reaches the ropes, almost getting disqualified by the referee.

          Austin continues to target Van Dam's knees to slow him down & keep him grounded.

          Stone Cold pulls Van Dam up to his feet, and again goes for the Stone Cold Stunner. Van Dam pushes Austin forward to slip out of the manuever. Austin springs into the ropes, and is met with a kick to the midsection by Van Dam in the center of the ring.

          Austin catches Van Dam's foot, and ducks underneath his Enziguiri attempt. Van Dam brings his foot back around to nail Austin with a Reverse Enziguiri, dropping him to the mat unconscious.

          Rob Van Dam slowly recovers up to his feet, and attempts his Split Legged Moonsault out of the corner, but Austin props his knees up at the last second.

          Van Dam crashes down across Austin's knees, and rolls over clutching his ribs trying to gasp for a breath of air.

          As Van Dam lays on the mat clutching his ribs, Austin slowly pulls himself up to the second rope. Austin flips Van Dam off with both middle fingers from the second rope before he drops his Off Second Rope Driving Elbow Drop.

          Both Van Dam and Austin both lay motionless on the mat for a moment before Austin slowly starts to pull himself back up to his feet with the ropes. Stone Cold slowly pulls Van Dam up to his feet by the hair, and tries to go for his Stone Cold Stunner yet again. Van Dam slips out of the manuever again, pushing Austin into the adjacent ropes.

          Austin bounces back from the ropes, and is met by a stiff Spinning Heel Kick to the face. Stone Cold lays on the mats out cold.

          Rob Van Dam pulls himself up slowly, looks down at Austin for a moment, and then rolls across the ring to land his Rolling Thunder Splash.

          Rob Van Dam gets up to his feet looking at the crowd as they frantically cheer him on. Van Dam leaps up to the top rope, points his two thumbs at himself, and gets the entire arena to say his name before reaching insane height with his 5 Star Frog Splash.

          Finish:

          Rob Van Dam pulls himself up slowly, looks down at Austin for a moment, and then rolls across the ring to land his Rolling Thunder Splash.

          Rob Van Dam gets up to his feet looking at the crowd as they frantically cheer him on. Van Dam leaps up to the top rope, points his two thumbs at himself, and gets the entire arena to say his name before reaching insane height with his 5 Star Frog Splash.

          Van Dam crashes down onto Austin, and immediately covers him for the pinfall.

              9-22-2001
              ECW Arena
              South Philly, PA

              This week's episode of Extreme Championship Wrestling Uncensored on MTV2 opens up with Joey Styles in the commentary booth of the "Eagles Nest" balcony of the infamous ECW Arena. The fans booming chants of "E! C! DUB!" echo in the background as Mr. Styles gives a brief introduction for the television audience.


              Joey Styles:


              Good evening ladies & gentleman, and welcome to this weeks episode of ECW Uncensored right here on MTV2. I am your host Joey Styles, and tonight we come to you live from the ECW Arena in South Philadelphia Pennsylvania.

              We are less than 24 hours away from the WCW One Night Stand pay per view where the ECW World Heavyweight Champion Dean Malenko will defend the honor and respect of ECW when he takes on the legendary "Nature Boy" Ric Flair. Also at tomorrow night's WCW One Night Stand pay per view will be the current ECW FTW Champion Rey Mysterio, as well as one of the top contenders to his title, Juventud Guerrera. Rey & Juvy will represent ECW when they take on the current WCW/WWF Unified Cruiserwieght Champion, The Ultimo Dragon, and former ECW Television Champion Chris Jericho in an elimination style Four Way Dance.

              Tonight on this show, the entire future of this company will be at stake in a 6 man street fight. ECW's Co-Executive Commissioners, Paul Heyman and Mick Foley, have come to an agreement to end it all tonight, on this program in a Six Man Street Fight. Quality Control will face New Jack, The Godfather, and Sabu in a match that will determine the permanent rule setting for all ECW matches. If Quality Control wins, standard WWF rules will apply to all ECW matches. This means countouts, disqualifications, the whole nine yards. If Paul Heyman's team wins, the standard "Extreme" rules of ECW will remain the permanent setting for the company. Also on the line in this crucial matchup, the losing team will be forced to leave the company. It's a Loser Leaves Town Six Man Street Fight tonight on this show.

              Also on the show tonight we have an ECW World Tag Team titles match with the current champions, Super Crazy & La Parka defending the titles for the first time against the Sinister Minister's team of Vader & Vampiro.

              We will also be taking a look at Ken Shamrock's recent killing spree through the ECW, Pulp Fiction videos, and much more tonight on ECW Uncensored!

              We cut away from the commentary booth to the ring where Axl Rotten is already standing in the ring, pumping the crowd up by leading them on in an E! C! DUB! chant.

              Axl Rotten speaks into his microphone after the chants finally die down, and talks about his memories with Balls Mahoney as a tag team. Axl says that he misses his best friend, and calls him out to ask for forgiveness.

              The fans cheer when AC/DC's "Big Balls" plays through the sound system of the Arena, bringing out the resident chairman of ECW, Balls Mahoney.

              Balls Mahoney takes his time to the ring high fiving the fans as they sing along to his entrance music. Balls gets in the ring and looks at Axl Rotten with his custom painted steel chair in his hands. Balls looks as if he is ready to blast Axl in the face with his chair, but he looks around at the crowd seeking their approval.

              Axl extends his hand out for a handshake as Balls looks to the crowd for advice about what to do. The fans cheer for Balls to drop the chair and shake hands with his former tag team partner in "The Chair Swinging Freaks".

              Balls Mahoney hesitates for a moment, but eventually drops the steel chair. Balls Mahoney shakes hands with Axl Rotten, and the crowd cheers for them when they reach in to hug each other in a passionate brotherly embrace.

              The Chair Swinging Freaks have reunited as a tag team. The fans start chanting "E! C! DUB!" when Balls & Axle raise each others hands up in the air.

              Axl Rotten gets the microphone to say that together they are the toughest sons of bitches in the ECW, and that they challenge anyone in the back to come out to prove otherwise right here and now!

              All of a sudden the crowd goes crazy when "Fight With Dream" kicks on the P.A. system of the Arena.

              Hayabusa & Shinzaki slowly come walking out of the back together with their sights set on Balls & Axle in the ring. Shinzaki & Hayabusa circle the ring on opposite sides as Balls grabs his steel chair up off of the mat. Balls & Axle stand back to back facing Hayabusa & Shinzaki on the outside of the ring looking up at them. A referee comes running out of the back into the ring, and signals for a bell for our opening tag team matchup.


              Tag Team Match
              The Chair Swinging Freaks(Balls Mahoney & Axl Rotten) vs Bushido(Hayabusa & Jinsei Shinzaki)
              vs

              Hayabusa and Jinsei Shinzaki both simultaneously slide under the ropes into the ring as soon as the bell rings. Balls Mahoney takes a swing at Shinzaki at the same time that Axle throws a wild punch at Hayabusa. Both Hayabusa and Shinzaki duck underneath the strikes at the same time. Shinzaki thrustkick's Balls' steel chair into his face, dropping him to the mat. Balls rolls out of the ring to the outside mats as Hayabusa & Axl Rotten trade punches.

              Shinzaki attacks Axl Rotten with Karate Chops the back of the head as he fights with Hayabusa. Hayabusa whips Axl into the ropes across the ring. Shinzaki and Hayabusa land simultaneous Spinning Heel Kicks to Axl's face when he comes back across the ring, dropping him to the canvas.

              Shinzaki and Hayabusa immediately approach Axl Rotten as he still lays sprawled out on the canvas. Shinzaki performs a Standing Somersault Guillatine Legdrop across Axl's throat while Hayabusa lands a Standing Moonsault Splash at the same time.

              The fans all applaud the impressive teamwork of Bushido as Jinsei Shinzaki assumes his position in his corner. Balls Mahoney still remains out of it on the outside of the ring, laying down on the mats trying to recover up to his knees.

              In the ring, Hayabusa runs into the ropes, and springs off with his "Phoenix Senton", Flying Somersault Senton with Twist down across Axl as he lays on the canvas. Busa immediately, fluidly rolls through up to his feet, and springboards off of the opposite ropes with a Moonsault Splash that brings the crowd to it's feet.

              Hayabusa attempts a cover, but Axl kicks out at 2. Hayabusa pulls Axl Rotten up to his feet, and whips him into the corner turnbuckles. Hayabusa continues to dazzle the crowd when he lands his devastating Handspring Back Elbow Smash. The crowd gives Hayabusa a standing ovation after the rapid fire succession of highly impressive maneuvers.

              Hayabusa climbs up the turnbuckles in the corner to the top rope, and the crowd swells with each step he takes up. Hayabusa stands atop the top rope, and begins to leap off with his 450 Splash, but he is suddenly hit in the side of the head by a steel chair thrown up at him by Balls Mahoney on the outside of the ring.

              Hayabusa falls over to the outside of the ring off of the top rope, causing everyone in the Arena to let out a loud "OHHHH!"

              Balls Mahoney attacks a grounded Hayabusa on the outside of the ring. Jinsei Shinzaki leaps down off of the apron, and attacks Balls Mahoney from behind. Shinzaki knocks Balls down with several brutal Karate Chops to the back of the neck. Shinzaki climbs up to the apron as Balls slowly recovers up to his feet. Balls turns around to meet Shinzaki as he flies through the air with his graceful Springboard Asai Moonsault.

              Balls and Shinzaki roll around in pain on the outside as the fans chant E! C! DUB!. Axl Rotten recovers in the ring, and rolls to the outside. Axl attacks a recovering Hayabusa with kicks to the mid-section. Axl rips up the ringside mats on the outside to expose the cold, hard concrete. Axle then lifts Hayabusa up, and drills his head into the floor with a hard piledriver.

              Hayabusa is knocked out. Axl pulls him up to roll him into the ring as Balls and Shinzaki slowly begin to recover up to their feet on the outside. Axl Rotten enters the ring, and devastates Hayabusa with his Underhook Face First Piledriver. Axl goes for a pinfall, but Hayabusa barely manages to kick out and stay alive. Axl Rotten pulls Hayabusa up to a seated position, and wraps his severely scarred up arm around his throat to lock him into a tight Sleeper Hold. Axl grinds away at Hayabusa's throat trying to drain the life out of him as Shinzaki finally recovers up to his feet on the outside of the ring. Jinsei Shinzaki leaps up to the apron, and nails Axle in the back of the head with a crisp Springboard Missile Dropkick. Axl breaks the hold on Hayabusa, and falls over unconscious.

              Shinzaki climbs back out of the ring to his corner as Hayabusa slowly starts to recover up to his feet, still holding his head in pain due to the piledriver earlier in the contest.

              Hayabusa clings to the ropes trying to shake the dizziness off as Axle Rotten slowly pulls himself up to his feet, still dazed from the blow to the head from Shinzaki. Hayabusa slowly approaches a dazed & confused Axl Rotten, and drops him with a perfectly executed Backflip Kick to the head. Hayabusa crawls over to his corner to tag out to Shinzaki. Shinzaki comes in, and continues to wear Axl Rotten down with vicious Karate Chops and Throat Thrusts before executing his trademark Praying Rope Walk Flying Arm Chop. Shinzaki ascends the ropes in the corner to the top, and flies through the air with his Praying Diving Headbutt, but Axl Rotten moves out of the way at the last second.

              Shinzaki crashes down into the canvas as Axl Rotten slowly tries to drag himself over to tag out to Balls Mahoney in the corner.

              Axl Rotten barely manages to reach Balls for the tag. Balls Mahoney storms the ring attacking Shinzaki with hard punches to the jaw. The crowd screams "BALLS!" with every punch landed until one of them finally drops Shinzaki back down to the canvas. Balls pulls Shinzaki up to his feet, whips him into the ropes, and drives him into the canvas with his "Ball Breaker", Sit Down Spinebuster Slam. Balls Mahoney gets up, and points at the top rope as the crowd goes crazy for him. Balls goes up top for his Frog Splash, but just before he leaps, Hayabusa shakes the ropes on the nearby apron. Balls falls down racking his groin on the turnbuckes. Hayabusa approaches him in the corner out on the apron, and lands several strikes before climbing up to the top rope. Hayabusa leaps up high into the air before landing on Balls' shoulders for a Super Rana off of the top rope.

              Hayabusa rises up to his feet as Axl Rotten storms into the ring. Axl takes a swing at Hayabusa with a Lariat attempt, but Busa ducks underneath. Axl turns around and gets hammered in the face by an amazing Spinkick by Hayabusa.

              Axl rolls out of the ring clutching his nose in pain as Balls Mahoney slowly recovers up to his feet in the ring.

              Jinsei Shinzaki drills Balls in the throat with a crisp Thrustkick, knocking him backwards, out on his feet, into another hard Thrustkick from Hayabusa to the back of his head.

              Balls crumbles to the canvas like a bag of bricks.

              Hayabusa notices Axl Rotten recovering on the outside of the ring, and sends the crowd into a frenzy when he lands his Running Catapult Somersault Body Press Suicida. E! C! DUB! chants fire up again as Shinzaki ascends the turnbuckles in the corner, puts his hands together in a praying stance for a brief moment, and leaps off with his graceful Praying Diving Headbutt onto Balls Mahoney.

              Shinzaki covers Balls for the pin.

              1....

              2....

              3!


              Bushido get the win after Jinsei Shinzaki pins Balls Mahoney. Hayabusa re-enters the ring, and the two men celebrate as we cut away to a commercial break.

              • Re: ECW: The 2001 WWF buyout. (August's Best Thread!)


                We return from our commercial break to join Joey Styles in the commentary booth with a special look at the unstoppable rampage that Ken Shamrock has been on in Extreme Championship Wrestling for the past month. Since making his debut in ECW at the behest of Vince Mcmahon, Shamrock has left a trail of blood behind him wherever he goes. Shamrock has already viciously attacked Joey Styles, Bas Rutten(guest commentator from Pride FC), Bill Alfonso, Charlie Bruzesse & Ron Buffone(future hall of fame producers of ECW TV), Paul Heyman, and just last week, he did the unthinkable when he most likely ended the wrestling career of the one true icon of ECW, Terry Funk.

                Ken Shamrock has imposed his will on the ECW, but has run into a roadblock in Bam Bam Bigelow. Bigelow has refused to back down from Shamrock ever since their battle in the 30 Man Anarchy Rulz match, and has tried to fight him on numerous occasions since the event.

                Shamrock has stated that he is finished with Pro Wrestling, and being a "Pro Wrestler", and is only in the ECW to make a check from Vince Mcmahon. Mcmahon has given Shamrock free reign to be himself, and to do whatever it takes to help keep the wild, unpredictable promotion under control along with the newly appointed ECW Co-Executive Commissioner Mick Foley(Quality Control).


                We cut away from Joey Styles in the commentary booth to a music video highlighting Shamrock's reign of terror to the tune of his entrance music, Hatebreed's "Last Breath".


                The video opens up with the music gradually fading in as Shamrock is shown sitting in a dark room, slowly strapping a pair of 4 ounce MMA gloves to his hands. The music kicks in, and a clip is shown of Shamrock casually walking into the ring, and extending his hand out to Bas Rutten for a handshake. Bas reaches out and shakes Ken's hand.


                Hatebreed-All the prayers in the world can't bring you back

                Ken Shamrock suddenly pulls Rutten in, and pulverizes him with his belly to belly suplex.

                Hatebreed-Its your last breath

                Ken then violently snatches up one of Bas' legs, and drops down to lock him in a heel hook.

                Hatebreed-this is your last breath

                Ken Shamrock destroys Bas Rutten's knee. The Knee pops, and Rutten rolls around screaming in agony.

                Hatebreed-Taken from this earth without warning, victim of the ultimate injustice

                Ken Shamrock then violently snatches Joey Styles by the collar of his suit.

                Hatebreed-Nothing will ever make sence of this, nothing could have prepared me

                Ken decimates little Joey with a nasty T-Bone Suplex.

                Hatebreed-All that is left are memories, and the peices of a shattered existence

                Shamrock is shown waiting in the ring in his fighting stance.

                Hatebreed-I wish i could bring you back

                Terry Funk slowly, fearlessly walks to the ring to face Shamrock.

                Hatebreed-I felt your last breath

                Shamrock fights with Funk in the clinch for a moment before dropping down to seize one of his legs for a takedown. Shamrock drops back, and destroys Funk's knee with his heel hook.

                Hatebreed-Its your last breath

                Shamrock enters the ring with clinched fists at Anarchy Rulz. Bam Bam Bigelow is worn out, but he doesn't back down. The Ballroom explodes when Bigelow meets Shamrock in the center of the ring going toe to toe with legitimate punches.

                Hatebreed-This is your last breath

                Shamrock and Bigelow throw stiff, wild punches at each other. Shamrock connects with several crushing blows to Bam Bam's face. Bam Bam collapses to the mat after a hard right hand that connects with his face, violently knocking his head back.

                Hatebreed-All the prayers in the world wont bring you back

                Shamrock is shown tossing Balls & Axle on their heads with suplexes.

                Hatebreed-Its your last breath

                Shamrock holds Balls up on his knees by his hair, and wipes blood off of his forehead.

                Hatebreed-This is your last breath

                Shamrock wipes the blood on his chest, spelling out "REAL".

                Hatebreed-LAST BREATH


                We cut back to the live shot of the Arena after the music video comes to an end, where we are set for our ECW World Tag Team Championship match.

                "La Ley Del Plomo" by Brujeria starts to hammer through the sound system of the Arena as the Tag Team Champions make their way out of the back. Super Crazy & La Parka come out headbanging to the music as the crowd goes crazy for them. La Parka plays his "Chair Guitar" on his way to the ring as Crazy takes time to high five the fans along the entrance isle. Super Crazy & La Parka enter the ring, and climb up the turnbuckles on opposite corners of the ring to salute the crowd.

                The lights in the Arena suddenly turn blood red as Slayer's "Bloodline" begins playing through the P.A. system. The heavy part of the song kicks in as Vader & Vampiro come out along with The Sinister Minister and Kimona.



                Vader is wearing his horned mask, and slowly makes his way to the ring along with his tag team partner. The Sinister Minister has a massive smile across his face from ear to ear as he lurks around the ring.


                ECW World Tag Team Championship Match

                Super Crazy & La Parka(C) vs The Unholy Alliance(Vader & Vampiro)
                vs


                Super Crazy starts the match off with Vampiro once the bell rings. Vampiro slowly, methodically circles Super Crazy in the ring for a moment before lunging in for a tie up. Super Crazy quickly throws Vampiro into the canvas with an Arm Drag Takedown. Vampiro quicky gets up to storm after Crazy, but Crazy tosses him again with another Arm Drag. Crazy immediately gets up, and nails Vampiro in the face with a sharp Dropkick. Vampiro goes down stunned, but quickly regains his senses to rise back up to his feet where Crazy hits him again with another dropkick to the face.

                The crowd cheers on as Vampiro goes down to the mats clutching at his jaw in pain. Vampiro gets back up to his feet, and goes after Super Crazy. Crazy leaps up to the top rope with the agility of a cat, and attempts a Moonsault Splash. Vampiro catches Crazy on his shoulder, and drills his head into the canvas with a devastating Corkscrew Tombstone Piledriver.

                Vampiro leans up in a seated position adjusting his jaw, looking down on Super Crazy's unconscious body. Vampiro slowly rises up to his feet, grabs Crazy's leg, and puts him into a Half Boston Crab submission in the center of the ring.

                Vampiro pulls back on the leg as Crazy screams out loud, reaching for the ropes in a futile attempt.

                Crazy fights off the pain as Vampiro keeps the hold on, smiling as Crazy screams. Vampiro finally releases the hold after realizing that Crazy will not quit.

                Vampiro strikes down onto Super Crazy's leg with kicks briefly before pulling him up, and sending him into the ropes. Crazy comes back across the ring where Vampiro attempts his Spinning Heel Kick. Super Crazy rolls under the Spinning Heel Kick, and attempts a dropkick to Vampiro's face after he gets back up. Vampiro pulls himself just out of range for the dropkick, causing Crazy to just barely miss him.

                Vampiro the lays into the side of Super Crazy's head with a disgusting sounding Soccer Kick as he tries to get up to all fours.

                Crazy lays face down incapacitated on the canvas as Vampiro looks down on him with a smile.

                Vampiro pulls Super Crazy up to his feet by his hair, and drops him down with a quick Snap Suplex, followed immediately by a Guillatine Legdrop across his throat. Vampiro hooks Crazy's leg for a cover, but Crazy kicks out at 2.

                Vampiro gets up and looks down at Super Crazy as he tries to recover up to his hands and knees. Vampiro smiles as Crazy struggles to regain his senses. Vampiro takes a brief moment to look out into the crowd as he creeps around the ring. Super Crazy gets up to his knees, and tries to make his way over to tag out to La Parka while Vampiro watches smiling.

                Vampiro approaches Super Crazy from behind, and pulls him up to his feet with a handful of hair. Vampiro whips Super Crazy into the corner where Vader is, and follows him with a devastating Flying Knee Strike to the face.

                Super Crazy collapses down to a seated position in the corner when Vampiro backs out of the corner. Vampiro pulls Crazy up in the corner, and Vader holds him up while Vampiro lays into him with kicks and punches.

                Super Crazy face flops down to the canvas unconscious. Vampiro tags out to Vader.

                Vader comes in, picks Super Crazy up, and tosses him across the ring with brute force.

                Crazy flies across the ring, and lands down on his back.

                Vader takes his time to make his way over to Crazy. Vader slowly pulls Super Crazy up to his feet, and lifts him up into the Military Press position with ease, high above his head.

                Vader steps forward, and drops Super Crazy down onto his face. Crazy bounces off of the mat face first.

                Vader pulls him up again, and flings him over across the ring into the corner. Vader busts Crazy up with a hard series of punches in the corner. Crazy is devastated with lefts and rights to the midsection. A hard right hand to the temple drops Crazy to the mat, folded over in an awkward position.

                Vader taunts the crowd with threats as Crazy lays on the mat in the corner.

                Vader drags Super Crazy out to the center of the ring, and lifts him up for a Powerbomb, but Crazy lands several rapid fire punches down onto his face while up on his shoulders out of desperation. Super Crazy gouges Vader's eyes, and causes him to lose his balance, nearly falling over backwards.

                Super Crazy then drops back to get Vader with a Hurricanrana, sending him down to the canvas.

                Super Crazy slowly crawls on all fours over to his corner trying to make the tag out to La Parka. Vader quickly gets up, and chases him down to prevent the tag. Vader grabs one of Crazy's legs to pull him back, but Super Crazy manages to barely reach out and make the tag.

                La Parka springs into the ring, and the crowd goes crazy when Vader backs up away from him.

                La Parka looks at Vader in his fighting stance as Super Crazy remains out of it in the ring. Vader backs away from La Parka to his corner with Vampiro as La Parka slowly walks out to the center of the ring.

                Super Crazy begins to slowly recover, and pulls himself up to his feet with the ropes. Vampiro jumps into the ring with Vader, as La Parka stands ready to attack in the center of the ring.

                Super Crazy leans back onto the ropes in the ring to keep his balance when all of a sudden La Parka starts fidgeting with an unknown object.

                All of a sudden La Parka turns around to face Super Crazy.

                La Parka throws a massive fireball into Super Crazy's face.

                Super Crazy falls over to the mat stomping his feet around, and flopping around like a fish due to the burning pain in his face.

                La Parka begins kicking down on Super Crazy until the referee finally rings the bell declaring the match a no-contest.



                La Parka has turned on his tag team partner to join the Sinister Minister's Unholy Alliance.

                La Parka, Vampiro, and Vader each attack Super Crazy as The Sinister Minister pushes a table into the ring.

                The Sinister Minister and Kimona set up the table in the ring, and douse it in flammable liquid as The Unholy Alliance continue to beat Crazy down like a dog.

                Vader puts Super Crazy into the position for a powerbomb as Kimona seductively lights the table on fire. The flames tower up high as the table burns. Just before Vader lifts Crazy up to send him through the burning table, Tommy Dreamer, The Sandman, Jerry Lynn, and Beulah Mcgillicutty come running out of the back.



                Dreamer storms the ring with a fire extinguisher putting the flames out as Sandman takes shots with his Singapore Cane.

                The Unholy Alliance retreat from the ring as Dreamer, Sandman, Jerry Lynn, and Beulah tend to a badly burned Super Crazy.

                Beulah & Jerry Lynn soak Crazy's face with wet towels as Dreamer & Sandman threaten the Unholy Alliance taking us away to a commercial break.




                Don't miss the rest of the story.

                • Re: ECW: The 2001 WWF buyout. (August's Best Thread!)


                  We return from our commercial break with an old ECW tradition that has been brought back by popular demand, Pulp Fiction videos. A parade of promos plays along set to the tune of "Miserlou" by Dick Dale as the characters of ECW speak their mind about the happenings in the land of Extreme.


                  The segment kicks off with with the Triple Threat together in the locker room. "No Gimmicks Needed" Chris Candido(With Sunny), "The Franchise" Shane Douglas(With Francine), and ECW World Heavyweight Champion, "The Shooter" Dean Malenko(With Dawn Marie) stand together in their locker room in street clothes.



                  Shane Douglas:


                  Tomorrow night, Atlanta FUCKING Georgia, a walking zombie will climb up out of it's grave, and walk this planet one more time. WCW One Night Stand. Ric Flair. You will find out that these three men right here are a family. This family demands respect, and tomorrow night Flair, you will give it to us, even if we have to pry it out of your motherfucking hands. You will respect these three men.

                  If you think for one second Flair, that the Triple Threat will not be there to watch Malenko's back, you don't know us very well.

                  Where Malenko goes, so does his family.

                  Surely, you already knew that Flair. Surely you didn't really think that we were just going to let our brother walk into enemy territory by himself, I know you are smarter than that.

                  You may be an old piece of shit, but you aren't stupid. I'll give you that Flair.

                  I got to be honest with you, never in my life did I ever think that you had the balls to show up in my house. The house that I built with my own two hands. You come here, and tried to raise up those four fingers Hahaha!

                  You have big balls Flair, I'll give you that.

                  You know for the longest time I used to dream about being a member of the Four Horsemen. The best group of wrestlers in this country. Blanchard, Whindam..Hahahahah....Anderson.

                  That was my dream Flair. The best fucking wrestlers in this country with all the belts, and all of the finest pieces of ass in the business together like it should be. With class, dignity, and respect.

                  Now, look at the three pieces of shit you bring together here in the ECW. The Old School Posse hahahahahahah!

                  This is the group that you want to pass the torch too?!?!

                  FUCK YOU FLAIR!

                  Those 3 pieces of shit couldn't even lace up my boots! Corino, AJ Styles, CW Anderson, YOU GOT TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME!

                  I look at those three men, and I see three jackasses that came up in the ECW by kissing ass, and playing political games.

                  Tomorrow night you will find out who the best is Flair.

                  This man, Dean Malenko, my brother, will represent the Triple Threat when he makes your old ass tap out in front of 60,000 people in the Georgia Dome. Maybe then you will respect us, when you are laying on your god damn back looking up at the lights.

                  This man is the greatest world champion in this business today. Listen to me when I tell you that Flair, and know now that you have bit off way more than your old ass can chew.

                  How many more men will have to be folded up like a pretzel before Dean Malenko gets the respect that he deserves as THE best world champion in the game today Flair?

                  He's too short.

                  He's not big enough.

                  He's not good enough on the microphone.

                  He doesn't have the charisma.

                  I DON'T GIVE A SHIT!!!

                  Tell me that shit when your ass is locked in the Texas Cloverleaf, and you are slamming your fucking hand down on the mat begging for mercy!

                  There isn't another World Champion in this game today that even deserves to be in the same ring as Dean Malenko.

                  Kurt Angle is one hell of a wrestler, but he doesn't even have half of the submission skills as my man here.

                  The Rock?!?!

                  Hahahahahahah!

                  I don't think so.

                  Tomorrow night Flair, you will find out who the greatest champion in this business is, and you will learn to respect this family.
                  Malenko, Candido, Douglas, Francine, Dawn, and Sunny end their promo by standing together holding up the three finger Triple Threat sign.

                  The shot moves along to The Old School Posse standing together outside at night. Steve Corino, AJ Styles, and CW Anderson stand together out in the parking lot with a shot of The Georgia Dome in the background.


                  Steve Corino holds up his all access VIP pass to WCW One Night Stand, and says that each member of the Old School Posse was given one for the show by Ric Flair. Corino says that the three men in the OSP are the "Chosen Ones", and that they have always been too good for ECW. He goes on to say that as soon as each of their contracts are up with ECW, they will be moving on up from the cockroach infested, shit hole bingo hall to bigger and better places.

                  Corino goes on to talk about Shane Douglas,

                  Steve Corino:

                  The thing about Shane Douglas that makes me sick is that I have never seen a guy that floated more on one single moment more than Shane Douglas. He was good back in 1992 with Ricky Steamboat, but who in the world isn't good with the Dragon as their partner? 7 years ago Shane threw the belt down and for some reason people said it was a big deal, but the NWA Title hadn't meant jack in years.

                  After that, what did Shane Douglas do? He was the world champion of a shit hole bingo hall company for a long time and ranted about how people held him down and talked about how great he really was, and that's about it.

                  Real talent will always rise to the top. Shane you never were a real talent. I am the real talent. AJ Styles is real talent. CW Anderson is real talent.

                  Shane Douglas, Chris Candido, Dean Malenko. The Triple Threat is the past.

                  We are the future.

                  Tomorrow night, at WCW One Night Stand, Flair has big plans for the Old School Posse.
                  AJ, Corino, and CW each hold up four fingers laughing in front of the Georgia Dome as the segment moves along.

                  The Pulp Fiction promos carry on to a shot of Bam Bam Bigelow in an unknown gym. Bigelow is shown wearing 4 ounce MMA gloves on his hands throwing punches and kicks at a pair of Thai Pads.


                  The man holding the Thai Pads is not fully shown in the camera shot, only parts of his arms as he moves the pads around for Bigelow as he throws punching, kicking, and kneeing combinations that look surprisingly fluid and crisp. The gym's walls are lined with pads, and there are several Japanese men standing in the background.

                  The man holding the Thai Pads for Bigelow gives him instructions and advice that Bigelow soaks in while throwing his combinations.

                  Bigelow stops hitting the pads for a moment to speak into the camera. Bigelow says that he has a special surprise for Ken Shamrock. Bigelow said that since Shamrock wants to talk about how real he is, he challenges him to a fully sanctioned, 3 round Shoot Fight at the upcoming live Crossing The Line ECW show on MTV2 in 4 weeks at the ECW Arena.

                  Bigelow says that he will fight Shamrock in his own game to prove how much heart and toughness pro wrestlers have.

                  Bam Bam says that the real surprise is that he is in Japan training with one of Ken's old friends for his upcoming fight at this weekend's Pride 16: Beasts From The Easts pay per view.

                  Bam Bam pulls the man with the Thai Pads into the camera shot and it's none other than.....


                  Two time UFC Tournament Champion Don "The Predator" Frye.

                  Don Frye briefly, shamelessly plugs his upcoming long awaited return to MMA at this weekends Pride 16: Beasts From The East pay per view(available all next week on Dish Network), where he will fight the highly dangerous dutch kickboxer Gilbert Yvel.

                  Frye sends a message saying that he knows Shamrock is really a coward deep down inside. Frye says he knows Shamrock will never fight him. Don says that he will personally train Bam Bam Bigelow to fight Ken Shamrock at ECW Crossing The Line in one month live on MTV2, and that he will be in Bigelow's corner for the fight.

                  The Pulp Fiction videos quickly moves along to a shot of Eddy Guerrero leaning up against the closed front door of the ECW Arena, standing directly under the "Double Deuces Bingo" sign.



                  Eddy talks into the camera saying that he's real excited for Dean Malenko for him getting the shot at the big show tomorrow night in front of thousands of fans against "The Nature Boy" of all people.

                  Guerrero talks about how he wasn't invited to be at the show, and goes on reminiscing about his memories in WCW.

                  Guerrero talks about his final days in WCW, and then goes on talking about how he left WCW with Perry Saturn, Chris Benoit, and Dean Malenko as The Radikals. Guerrero says that he took Shane Douglas' "Revolution" over to the WWF, and left him stranded on a sinking ship. Guerrero adds that Shane Douglas, Rey Mysterio, and Juventud Guerrera each had a chance to go over to the WWF along with him, but that he didn't want them to. Eddy said that he burried each of them to Vince, and decided that they were better off where they belonged, on a sinking ship.

                  Eddy says that now he's one of the outcasts that the WWF doesn't want any part of, but that he feels like he is now where he has always belonged.

                  Guerrero talks about how the people who he thought was his "Brothers" turned their backs on him when he needed them the most. He continues saying that he's a better man now than he has ever been, and that yesterday doesn't mean anything. Tomorrow is the day that you have to face.

                  Eddy says that Malenko will have to face him, and that he will be ready for Dean Malenko at the November to Remember. Eddy wishes Malenko good luck for tomorrow night, and says that he can't wait to see him in action again back in their old stomping grounds.

                  Eddy pulls out a ticket from his pocket, and holds it up to the camera. It's a ticket to WCW One Night Stand.

                  The Pulp Fiction promos come to an end with The Full Blooded Italians together on a bridge somewhere in the middle of the night. Guido Maritato, Chris Chetti, Sal E. Graziano, Johnny The Bull, and Vito Lagrasso all stand together on the bridge as Guido speaks into the camera.


                  Guido says that the FBI will destroy their enemies Nova, Kid Kash, Juventud Guerrera, and Rey Mysterio.

                  Guido guarantees that he will win back the FTW Title from Rey Mysterio via any means necessary very soon. He goes on to say that the FBI has made it a personal goal to end the wrestling career of Juventud Guerrera. Guido says that Juvy is a cockroach that will soon have his career buried.

                  Guido finishes the promo by saying that if Nova and Kid Kash keep getting involved in the FBI's business, they will sleep with the fishes. The camera zooms in on a shot of the river under the bridge as the Pulp Fiction promo's come to an end, and we cut away to commercials.

                    We return from our final commercial break with Quality Control already standing in the ring waiting for our ever so important main event of the evening. Tonight, the battle ends between Quality Control and ECW in this very match. Stevie Richards, Bull Buchanan, and Danny Doring each stand ready in the ring with steel chairs in their hands. The fans all boo Quality Control relentlessly until all of a sudden the speakers of the ECW Arena explode with the sounds of "Natural Born Killaz" by Ni&%*#s With Attitude(NWA).

                    The fans go wild when Sabu, New Jack, and The Godfather come out together. New Jack carries a trashcan full of weapons to the ring leading the way for Sabu and The Godfather behind him.

                    New Jack moves faster with each step towards the ring until he finally takes off running towards it, tossing his trashcan over the ropes towards Bull Buchanan.


                    Six Man Loser Leaves Town Street Fight
                    Sabu & Thug Life(New Jack & The Godfather) vs Quality Control(Stevie Richards, Bull Buchanan, and Danny Doring)

                    vs



                    The referee signals for a bell, and hides for his life in fear as absolute chaos ensues.

                    New Jack's trash can flies through the air into the ring just barely missing Bull Buchanan. The three men simultaneously storm the ring, and are immediately met with stiff chair shots from Quality Control. Sabu attempts to springboard over the top rope, but is quickly met with a steel chair thrown at his face by Bull Buchanan. Sabu falls over into the ring, and Buchanan kicks him back out to the floor outside.

                    Stevie Richards tries to hit New Jack in the head with his steel chair, but New Jack puts his hands up to block it. New Jack grabs the chair, and gives Richards a kick to the groin. Stevie Richards screams out loud before falling over holding his busted groin. New Jack repeatedly hits Stevie Richards in the back with the chair as he lays on the mat grimacing in pain.

                    The Godfather slides under the bottom rope into the ring, but is quickly attacked by Danny Doring with stiff shots to his back. Danny Doring lays New Jack out with a nasty chair shot from behind as he's tearing into Stevie Richards. Bull Buchanan exits the ring to the outside where he proceeds to beat down on Sabu with kicks.

                    Danny Doring drives the edge of the chair down into the neck and chest of both New Jack and The Godfather in the ring repeatedly as Stevie Richards continues rolling around on the mats in pain holding his groin.

                    On the outside, Bull Buchanan pulls Sabu up to his feet, and whips him into the steel guardrails around the ring. Buchanan lifts Sabu up into the air, and drops his throat across one of the guardrails. Sabu rolls around on the mats outside the ring clutching his throat, kicking his feet up and down in pain. Bull Buchanan shouts at the fans in the crowd to get up out of their seats, and get out of the way. The fans near the front row clear out of their seats in fear. Buchanan pulls Sabu up, and Guerrilla Press Slams him over the guardrail into the chairs in the front row. Sabu falls into the chairs, smashing several of them down due to the force of the impact. The fans all scream "OHHH!" when Sabu takes out the first three rows of chairs. Sabu lays down in a pile of chairs holding his jaw in agony as Buchanan slowly makes his way over the guardrail into the crowd. The fans gather closer in on the wrestlers until Buchanan screams at them to get back. The fans jump back startled by the big, intimidating man.

                    Bull Buchanan slowly pulls Sabu up to his feet, and proceeds to beat him through the crowd. Buchanan drags Sabu back towards the soundstage of the ECW Arena, just behind the bleachers near the Eagles Nest balcony, taking the time to land a few punishing strikes on their way. Buchanan drags Sabu over to a merchandise table near the soundstage. The table is covered in ECW T-shirts and hundreds of copies of ECW Anarchy Rulz 2001 on both DVD and VHS tape. Bull Buchanan taunts the crowd momentarily before putting Sabu into the position for a powerbomb. Buchanan lifts Sabu high up into the air, and drives him through the merchandise table with sickening force. Sabu folds in half when he crashes through the table, sending T-shirts, DVDs, and VHS tapes flying through the air all over the place. The crowd lets out a loud "OHHH!" when Sabu goes through the table and lays motionless on the concrete.

                    Back in the ring Danny Doring and Stevie Richards beat down on New Jack and The Godfather with their steel chairs. Danny Doring holds New Jack up for a Superkick, but New Jack kicks his leg up backwards to land a low blow on Doring. New Jack breaks free of Doring's hold, and ducks underneath a Superkick attempt from Stevie Richards. Richards misses with the kick, and New Jack begins landing a series of right and left punches to his forehead. New Jack's punches land with hard impact on Richards skull, causing him to become dazed and confused. The Godfather slowly begins to recover in the ring holding his back in pain from the chair shots.

                    New Jack sets Stevie Richards up in the corner, climbs up the ropes, and proceeds to bust his forehead open with stiff, hard punches. Stevie Richards begins bleeding profusely from his forehead. New Jack climbs down from the ropes, and backs away from the corner. Stevie Richards face flops over down into the canvas like a falling tree.

                    The Godfather recovers up to his feet, and sets the crowd off when he motions for the trashcan full of goodies in the ring. New Jack hypes the crowd up into a frenzy before he pulls up the trashcan, and spills it over. Several objects fall out of the can to the mat as the crowd goes crazy. Danny Doring and Stevie Richards begin to recover as New Jack and The Godfather pump the crowd up together with their "X" forearm gesture.

                    New Jack picks up a 3DO video game console from the pile of weapons in the ring as Stevie Richards stands up dazed and stunned with blood running down his face.

                    New Jack blasts Stevie over the head with the 3DO, but it doesn't break. Stevie Richards falls over to the mat. New Jack slowly pulls Stevie up to his knees, and smashes the 3DO over his head again, but it still does not break. Stevie falls over backwards unconscious. New Jack pulls him back up to his knees yet again, and proceeds to finally smash the 3DO over Stevie Richards already bloodied forehead, shattering the 32 bit console into pieces.

                    The Godfather picks up a billiards stick as Danny Doring finally starts to rise up to his feet. The Godfather jabs the stick into Danny Doring's stomach, causing him to bend over forewards. The Godfather then destroys the stick across Doring's back, sending pieces of wood flying into the air, and causing the crowd to scream out with a loud "OHHHHHH!"

                    Stevie Richards and Danny Doring lay sprawled out on the canvas as if they had been thrown from vehicles in an auto accident as the fans break out with a loud, passionate chant of "E! C! DUB! E! C! DUB! E! C! DUB!"

                    New Jack reaches down to pick up a Stretch Armstrong toy from his pile of goodies in the ring. Jack pulls Stevie Richards up to his knees, and proceeds to choke the life out of him with one of the stretched out arms of the toy.

                    Bull Buchanan finally makes his way back through the crowd to the ringside area as New Jack chokes Stevie Richards with the stretched out arms of a Stretch Armstrong toy. The Godfather pulls Danny Doring up to his knees, and scoops up a gigantic Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back CD for an old Laserdisc player. The Godfather smashes the massive CD over Danny Doring's head, opening up a nasty cut just over his eyebrow.

                    Bull Buchanan finally makes his way back into the ring, and immediately goes after New Jack. Buchanan attacks New Jack from behind, causing him to release his choke on Richards. Bull Buchanan drops New Jack down to the mat with Double Axe Handle strikes to his back. Bull then picks up a guitar from the pile of debri in the center of the ring. Buchanan smashes the guitar into the back of The Godfather's head, dropping him like a bad habit.

                    Bull Buchanan then looks down at one of the broken pieces of the pool stick that The Godfather smashed over Danny Doring's back.

                    Buchanan slowly picks up the sharp stick, and looks at it for a brief moment before looking over at New Jack laying on the mat.

                    Bull Buchanan walks over to New Jack, sits down on his chest, and tries to drive the sharp stake into one of his eyes. New Jack uses his hands to keep the stake away from his face, but Buchanan uses all of his weight to drive it down closer to his face.

                    The sharp wooden stake slowly moves closer and closer to one of New Jack's eyes as he frantically tries to push it back away from his face. Bull Buchanan strains, and turns red from trying his hardest to drive the stake into New Jack's eye.

                    Bull Buchanan's strength begins to overwhelm New Jack as the tip of the wood comes to within a quarter inch away from his eye. New Jack closes his eyes and pushes with all of his life to keep the stake away from his face, but it's no use.

                    A woman in the crowd can be heard screaming at the top of her lungs as Bull Buchanan forces the sharp wooden stake into New Jack's eye. New Jack manages to push the stake away from his eye, but it still jabs down into his cheek. The screaming woman in the crowd continues with her ear piercing cry as the tip of the sharp wooden stake drives down into New Jack's cheek, shaking furiously due to the two men pushing against each other. All of a sudden, The Godfather hits Bull Buchanan in the back of the head, causing him to fall over off of New Jack.

                    All five men remain sprawled out on their backs in the ring trying to recover. Stevie Richards pulls himself up to his knees with his face covered in blood. His white button up shirt is stained blood red from the bleeding. Sabu is shown finally recovering from the wreckage of the crashed in merchandise table near the soundstage. Stevie Richards rolls out of the ring, and staggers around dripping blood all over the place. The Godfather rolls out of the ring to go after Stevie Richards. Richards stumbles down the entrance isle as if he were done wrestling for the evening, but The Godfather quickly catches up with him. The Godfather attacks Stevie Richards from behind, and drags him back to the ringside area. New Jack recovers in the ring, and rolls around on the mat fighting with Bull Buchanan. The two men roll around choking each other, trying to gouge each other's eyes out with their own bare hands. The two men eventually roll out of the ring to the outside, and begin brawling their way down the isle over towards the soundstage/Eagles Nest balcony.

                    Sabu limps his way back towards the ring holding his jaw. The Godfather and Stevie Richards take their brawl out into the crowd.

                    Sabu rolls into the ring, picks up one of the chairs on the mat, and throws it into the face of a recovering Danny Doring. Doring falls over holding his face in pain. Bull Buchanan and New Jack take their fight back to the backstage area where the cameras follow them. New Jack slams Buchanan's head through a sheetrock wall, leaving him hanging with his head stuck.

                    Sabu regains his senses in the ring, sets up the steel chair, and performs a Triple Jump Moonsault onto Danny Doring. Sabu still clutches at his jaw in pain, and fails to cover Danny Doring for a pinfall. The fans give Sabu a standing ovation after he pulls off the high risk maneuver.

                    In the crowd The Godfather fights with Stevie Richards up the bleachers. The fans all shout and chant "E! C! DUB!" as they get a small taste of front row action with The Godfather and Richards brawling in their laps. The Godfather forces Stevie Richards over the edge of the bleachers down onto the soundstage, and devastates him with a piledriver down onto the exposed wood.

                    Meanwhile in the ring, Sabu recovers and places Danny Doring in the Camel Clutch submission, pulling back on him to stretch him out. Danny Doring cries out loud in pain as Sabu tries to break him in half.

                    The fans in the ECW Arena come unglued when New Jack walks out of the back onto the Eagles Nest balcony. The Godfather positions Stevie Richards bloodied body on top of a table just underneath the Eagles Nest. New Jack gives his double forearm "X" signal, and the crowd goes ape shit. Just before New Jack leaps, Bull Buchanan emerges from the back to the Eagles Nest balcony. Bull grabs New Jack by the back of the neck just before he leaps, and throws him into a nearby wall up on the balcony.

                    Bull Buchanan kicks down at New Jack with strikes up on the balcony as The Godfather tries to climb up a stack of speakers up to the balcony. Stevie Richards begins to recover, and notices The Godfather climbing up the speakers. Richards slowly gets up off of the table, and grabs a nearby steel chair. Stevie Richards busts New Jack in the back with the chair, causing him to fall down off of the speaker to the wooden floor of the sound stage.

                    Bull Buchanan begins communicating with Stevie Richards from up on the Eagles Nest balcony. Stevie Richards follows Bull's instructions, and fetches another table to stack up on top of the one on the sound stage.

                    Back in the ring Sabu continues to stretch out Danny Doring with his Camel Clutch. Sabu releases the hold, and kicks down at Doring's back. Sabu grabs the steel chair, and performs his Arabian Facebuster off of the top rope, rendering Doring unconscious. Sabu slowly exits the ring, and pulls out a table from underneath the apron. Sabu sets the table up with one end propped up on the apron of the ring, and the other propped up on the guardrail.

                    Out on the sound stage, Stevie Richards has two tables stacked up on top of each other just underneath the Eagles Nest balcony. Bull Buchanan grabs New Jack by the throat, and walks him over to the edge of the balcony. All of the fans in the Arena turn to see the balcony as Bull Buchanan lifts New Jack up high into the air.

                    Bull Buchanan drops New Jack off of the Eagles Nest balcony through two tables. Wood pieces fly everywhere. The crowd all collectively scream out a loud "OHHHHHH!" as New Jack falls down off of the Balcony through two tables. Bull Buchanan flexes his muscles, and screams out at the crowd as tear the roof off of the place with chants of "E! C! DUB!".

                    The Godfather recovers on the sound stage, and grabs a steel chair. The Godfather folds his chair in half with a brutal shot to Stevie Richard's head, laying him out cold. The Godfather then tries to climb back up the speaker to the Eagles Nest where Bull Buchanan is. Bull Buchanan stands over the edge to stop him, but The Godfather hits him with his chair. Bull Buchanan falls over to the floor of the Eagles Nest as the Godfather climbs his way up.

                    The Godfather ties Bull Buchanan's feet together with some of the audio/video cables on the floor nearby. The Godfather ties Bull up, and pushes him over the edge of the Eagles Nest balcony. Bull Buchanan falls over the edge, and hangs upside down by the feet. The Godfather makes his way back down through the backstage area as New Jack remains lifeless in a pile of wooden table shards on the sound stage. Stevie Richards slowly begins recovering up to his feet, and makes his way back to the ringside area.

                    Back near the ring, Sabu slowly drags Danny Doring over to the table set up on the outside. Stevie Richards slowly makes his way into the ring, and lands several kicks and punches to Sabu. Danny Doring slowly begins recovering on the table. Doring climbs back into the ring to help Stevie double team on Sabu with kicks while he's down.

                    All of a sudden the fans in the ECW Arena come unglued when The Godfather comes walking out of the back carrying a ladder on his shoulders.

                    The Godfather gets in the ring with his ladder, puts it over his head down on his shoulders, and spins around like a helicopter taking out Stevie Richards and Danny Doring.

                    Doring and Richards are both dropped with ladder strikes to the head. The Godfather pulls the ladder up off of his shoulders, and tosses it into Danny Doring's face. The ladder clanks into Doring's head with a loud noise that brings out more "OHHH!"'s from the fans. Doring rolls out of the ring onto the table setup by Sabu.

                    Sabu slowly recovers up to his feet in the ring. Danny Doring slowly recovers on the table, and rises up to his feet on top of it in a groggy daze. Sabu quickly arranges a chair near the ropes. Sabu springs off of the ropes, sprints across the ring, leaps up from the chair to the top rope, and dives off onto Danny Doring with a DDT through the table.

                    The fans in the arena all stand and cheer as both Sabu and Danny Doring lay motionless on the outside of the ring in the wreckage of the broken table. The Godfather pulls Stevie Richards up to his feet, and drills him into the ladder with his "Pimp Drop", Death Valley Driver. Richards is out cold, covered in his own blood as the Godfather hooks his leg for a pin....

                    1...

                    2.....

                    3!


                    It's finally over. The war is finally over. Quality Control's five month reign of terror in the ECW is finally over. New Jack, The Godfather, and Sabu have finally gotten their revenge for the months of torment they have endured.

                    EMT's tend to both New Jack and Bull Buchanan near the soundstage. Officials cut Bull Buchanan down from the hanging wires, and cart him out on a stretcher. The EMT's offer to help a recovering New Jack, but he refuses the aid. The fans give a standing ovation as New Jack slowly makes his way back to the ring, limping, beaten, and exhausted.

                    Doring, Buchanan, and Richards are all taken from the building by EMT's as Sabu slowly recovers to re-enter the ring. Sabu, New Jack, and The Godfather celebrate as the fans continue to blow the roof off of the ECW Arena with the chants. Suddenly the fans excitement grows when ECW Co-Executive Commissioner Paul Heyman emerges from the back clapping his hands.


                    Heyman makes his way to the ring applauding the three men along with the fans. Paul E. gets into the ring, and shakes each of the men's hands. The fans erupt in the loudest "E! C! DUB!" chant of the night. Sabu, The Godfather, and New Jack climb out into the crowd to chant along with them as Paul Heyman stands in the ring looking at the camera with his deep, emotional stare.

                      One Night Stand
                      September 23rd, 2001
                      Georgia Dome
                      Atlanta, Georgia



                      WCW One Night Stand starts off with two stretch limos pulling up to the Georgia Dome together. Vince Mcmahon and Chris Jericho get out of the first one together. Quality Control(Test, Albert, The Wall, and The Hollies) piles out of the other limo together.



                      Vince says that The Rock will walk out of Atlanta with the WCW World Title tonight, and Jericho will show everyone why the WWF is, was, and always will be the best in the world. Mcmahon tells Quality Control that their job for this evening is to do everything within their power to ruin the party for Shane Mcmahon's WCW, as well as making sure that the WWF does not get humiliated tonight.

                      As the group of men approach the locker room entrance, one of the security guards gets in their way. The guard tells Vince Mcmahon that he's not on the list for access to the backstage area. The small man tells Vince Mcmahon that if he wants into the building, he will have to buy a ticket. The Quality Control men around Vince Mcmahon burst out laughing briefly before noticing that Vince wasn't happy about the remarks. Test quickly grabs the man by the neck, and picks him up against a nearby wall. Vince screams at the man, asking him "DO YOU KNOW WHO THE HELL I AM?!", before Test drops him down to the ground.

                      Just as Vince, Jericho, and Quality Control enter the building, they are suddenly attacked by a group of WCW wrestlers. Shane Helms, Shawn Stasiak, Chuck Palumbo, Sean O'Haire, Chavo Guerrero, and Kanyon all rush the entrance to fight off Quality Control. A huge brawl breaks out. Quality Control gain the upper hand, and destroy the WCW wrestlers. Vince Mcmahon stands back watching as Quality Control smash the WCW wrestlers. Each of the WCW wrestlers are beaten down like dogs, and left laying on the floor as Vince, Jericho, and Quality Control make their way into the building.

                      The camera shot fades to black. Suddenly the opening seconds of the song "Also sprach Zarathustra" begins to play. The opening sunrise scene from 2001: A Space Odyssey plays along with classic WCW still images cut into the opening video.





                      World Championship Wrestling presents...



                      A Mcmahon/Flair production



                      Out of the ashes of an era



                      A Pheonix has risen



                      For one more chance to fly



                      One more crow to stone



                      One more dream



                      One more battle



                      One more night to breathe



                      One more night to remember



                      One Night Stand

                      One Night Stand kicks off live inside the jam packed Georgia Dome as 60,000 fans are blowing the roof off of the place. Pyrotechnics explode over the ring, and the camera sweeps through the arena to reveal the massive, electric crowd, as well as the classic WCW set on the entrance stage.

                      A familiar voice begins speaking on commentary welcoming all of the ppv viewers to the live broadcast. The camera switches over to show the commentary booth where the classic team of Tony Shiavonne, Mike Tenay, and Larry Zybisco are seated together ready for the action. Tony shouts at the top of his lungs with a voice filled with excitement and emotion as he tries to speak loud enough to be heard over the crowd.


                      Tony Shiavonne:

                      Good evening ladies and gentleman and weclome to the jam packed Georgia Dome in beautiful Atlanta Georgia where we are live with WCW One Night Stand!

                      I'm Tony Shiavonne, and alongside me tonight for this broadcast are my two longtime broadcast partners Mike Tenay and "The Living Legend" Larry Zybisco.

                      Ladies and gentleman we are back. Tonight World Championship Wrestling is back. We have an unbelievable show in store for us tonight, and at this time I want to thank you. All of the WCW fans that have stuck with this company through these dark times. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

                      We may not know what the future holds in store for WCW. We have a new owner in Shane Mcmahon, but we don't know if tonight will be the beginning of a new era, or if it will be our final farewell.

                      What we do know is that tonight is all about WCW. World Championship Wrestling. Tonight we celebrate our proud history, and we take the center stage for what truly may well be a One Night Stand.
                      Mike Tenay:

                      Tony what about this unbelievable hometown crowd. This is amazing. The hairs on the back of my neck are standing up. We truly are back here in Atlanta tonight, and this crowd is ready for some traditional World Championship Wrestling entertainment. This crowd is electric right now, and it makes you wonder about what kind of effect they will have on tonight's main event. Let's not forget about the proud history of WCW in Atlanta. For a long time WCW Saturday Night was broadcast on free tv in the Atlanta area. Many of these rabbid fans here tonight have grown up watching WCW, and tonight they will be witnessing something that they never thought they would see again.
                      Larry Zybisco:

                      That's right Mike, you have to wonder how The Rock will handle it here tonight. I think this crowd will be a bit biased towards the WCW People's Champion. Diamond Dallas Page has been on a tear in WWF all Summer long, and he really has been carrying the WCW on his back here in these last couple of months. He took out the Undertaker at Summerslam. I think this match will be a real war guys, I can't wait.
                      Tony Shiavonne:

                      This is going to be a special night indeed gentleman. We have an unbelievable night of action ahead of us. WCW is back!

                      Let's go down to the ring to get ready for our opening contest.
                      The camera shot switches over to the ring where the ring announcer brings out the combatants for our first contest. Mike Awesome comes out first, and gets a surprisingly good reaction. Awesome comes out hyped up and intense as he looks around noticing several signs proclaiming "Fear The Mullet!". The Mulleted Monster makes his way to the ring, stands up in the corner, and gets a decent reaction from the ultra excited fans. The wrestler formerly known as The Big Show comes out next to mixed reactions from the fans. The massive Giant lumbers to the ring ready to destroy his opponent, focused and determined.

                      The Giant vs Mike Awesome
                      vs

                      Summary:

                      The bell rings as both men slowly, cautiously approach each other in the center of the ring for a staredown. The Giant towers over Mike Awesome by several inches, but Awesome looks up at him with a fearless look in his eyes.

                      Awesome shoves The Giant away from him with a hard shove. The Giant pushes back, and forces Awesome nearly all the way across the ring into the ropes. Awesome responds with another hard shove that barely moves The Giant.

                      The Giant stands his ground. Awesome runs back into the ropes, and slams into The Giant with a hard Shoulder Block, but The Giant barely moves. Awesome runs back into the ropes again for another Shoulder Block, this time landing one even harder that manages to send The big man stumbling backwards, nearly losing his balance. Awesome runs back into the ropes a third time, and attempts a Lariat, but The Giant ducks underneath it. Awesome turns around, and is met with a massive hand slapped across his throat by The Giant. The powerful Giant squeezes Mike Awesome's throat, and walks him over near the corner. The Giant shoves Awesome into the corner by the throat, and proceeds to decimate him with a series of brutal Chest Chops and Knee Smashes. Mike Awesome collapses in the corner due to the devastating strikes.

                      The Giant slowly pulls Mike Awesome up in the corner by a handful of his Mullet. The Giant then throws Awesome like a ragdoll with a Hip Toss out of the corner.

                      The Giant bounces off of the nearby ropes, and attempts a big splash, but Mike Awesome props his knees up at the last second. The Giant crashes down on Awesome's knees with all of his weight, letting out a deep, loud sound as his breath is knocked from his lungs.

                      The Giant rolls back towards the ropes clutching his ribs, struggling to catch his breath. The big monster rolls under the ropes to the outside trying to regain his breath on his knees.

                      Mike Awesome recovers to his feet in the ring as The Giant rises on the outside. The Giant takes a few steps away from the ring with his back to Mike Awesome. Awesome springs off of the ropes on the opposite side, sprints across the ring at incredible speed, and leaps over the top rope with the agility of a cruiserweight. Awesome flies through the air, and crashes down on The Giant on the outside with a Suicide Plancha. Both men go to the ground rolling around in pain.

                      Mike Awesome slowly recovers up to his feet, and rolls The Giant back into the ring. The Giant slowly recovers up to his feet in the ring as Mike Awesome ascends the turnbuckles in the corner.

                      Mike Awesome leaps off of the top rope across the ring to drill The Giant with a Flying Shoulder Block.

                      The Giant goes down. Mike Awesome gets up, and hypes the crowd up with his intensity. Awesome pulls The Giant up to his feet, and puts him into the position for his "Awesome Bomb", Power Bomb.

                      Mike struggles to lift the big man up for his Powerbomb, and gets countered with a Back Body Drop from The Giant. Awesome crashes down into the canvas with tremendous force due to the drop from nearly over 7 feet up.

                      The Giant pulls Awesome up, and tries to whip him into the corner across the ring. Awesome reverses the whip, and sends The Giant back into the opposite corner. The referee gets caught in the crosshairs, and is squashed in the corner by The Giant.

                      The referee goes down, out cold.

                      Awesome grabs The Giant from behind for a German Suplex, but struggles to lift the big man up. The Giant takes Awesome's back with a Standing Switch, and tosses him across the ring with a release German Suplex.

                      The Giant slowly lumbers over to Mike Awesome, pulls him up again by his Mullet, and proceeds to Chokeslam the life out of him in the center of the ring. Mike Awesome is knocked out. The Giant covers him for the pinfall, but the referee remains unconscious.

                      The Giant gives up the cover, and goes outside the ring. The large monster pulls a table out from under the ring, and sets it up on the outside.

                      The Giant then gets back in the ring, and pulls Mike Awesome up to his shoulders to give him a taste of his own medicine.

                      The Giant carry's Mike Awesome over to the ropes on his shoulders to drop him over the top rope through a table on the outside. Mike Awesome suddenly begins to kick and worm his way free. Awesome breaks free of the The Giant's grasp, and slides out of the powerbomb.

                      Mike Awesome spins The Giant around, and hammers into the side of his head with three consecutive elbow strikes. The big behemoth is stunned. Awesome kicks him in the stomach, and puts him into the position for a powerbomb.

                      Awesome points down at the table outside the ring, and the crowd blows the roof off of the Georgia Dome.

                      Mike Awesome screams out loud when he uses every muscle in his body, and every ounce of strength in his soul to rip The Giant up into the air. All 60,000 fans in the Georgia Dome rise to their feet, and scream as Mike Awesome gets the 500 pound Giant up on his shoulders just barely. Awesome's face turns red, and the veins in his neck protrude as he takes a few steps over towards the ropes.

                      Mike Awesome releases The Giant, just barely getting him over the rope, and drops him down through the table on the outside.

                      Finish:

                      The Giant slams through the table to the floor with sickening force as all of the fans in the Georgia Dome explode. Mike Awesome collapses down to the canvas exhausted.

                      Mike Awesome slowly recovers, and goes to the outside to roll the incapacitated Giant back into the ring. Awesome goes back up to the top rope as the crowd cheers him on. The Mulletted Maniac leaps to an amazing distance off of the top rope to reach The Giant over halfway across the ring with his "Awesome Splash", Frog Splash.

                      The referee recovers just in time to count as Awesome hooks one of the Giant's legs for a pinfall. The crowd lets out a loud "OH!" when The Giant kicks out.

                      All of a sudden the crowd's cheers turn to boo's when Quality Control come running out of the back to ruin the moment.


                      Test, Albert, The Wall, and The Hollies get boo'd out of the building when they storm the ring to attack both The Giant and Mike Awesome.

                      The referee signals for a bell, declaring a double disqualification as both Awesome and The Giant are destroyed in the ring.

                      Aftermath:

                      One of the fans in the ringside area leaps over the guardrail in anger. The fan tries to attack Test, and manages to get within arms reach of him before being violently tackled down to the ground by security.

                      Quality Control crash the show......

                      Until all of a sudden........

























































                      The crowd goes wild!

                      Hacksaw Jim Duggan rushes to the ring with his 2X4 and an American Flag.

                      Duggan enters the ring and takes out Quality Control with his 2X4. Test, Albert, and The Wall are knocked unconscious as The Hollies still beat on Mike Awesome, not realizing what is going on.

                      Duggan drops the 2X4, and gets down into his 3 point stance.

                      Hardcore and Crash Holly turn around, and get taken out with a stiff Double Running Clothesline.

                      Quality Control all roll out of the ring unconscious as Duggan picks up his American flag. Duggan circles the ring waving the flag, giving the crowd the thumbs up, and shouting "U! S! A!" at the top of his lungs. The crowd chants along with Duggan at ear piercing volume.

                      U! S! A!
                      U! S! A!
                      U! S! A!


                      Hacksaw Jim Duggan has eliminated Quality Control from tonight's show. The camera shot cuts back to the backstage area where Vince Mcmahon is shown watching the attack unfold on a monitor. Vince snaps in a fit of frustration, and slams the monitor down into the concrete. Vince Mcmahon loses it after realizing that he has absolutely no control whatsoever over tonight's show.


                      The program switches over to a shot of Eddy Guerrero walking through the crowd of the Georgia Dome making his way towards his ringside seat for the evening. The Georgia Dome crowd all applaud Eddy as he takes his seat on the front row, props his legs up on the steel guardrail, and proceeds to get comfortable for the show. Georgia Dome security guards approach him as soon as he gets comfortable. Eddy munches on a tub of popcorn as two security guards approach him, asking him to leave the building.


                      Eddy smiles at the two security guards before pulling out a ticket stub from his pocket. The two security guards inspect the ticket stub briefly before leaving him to his popcorn and cold pepsi.

                      The Georgia Dome crowd then comes to life when suddenly Juventud Guerrera's ECW entrance song("Taquila Sunrise", by Cypress Hill) begins playing through the sound system. Juventud Guerrera makes his way to the ring looking around in amazement at the massive crowd.

                      Mike Tenay:

                      Guys, Juventud Guerrera has turned his career around since going back to his roots in Extreme Championship Wrestling earlier this year. He put the mask back on, and he fought his way up to be the top contender to the ECW's FTW championship, currently held by Rey Mysterio.

                      Juventud has fought back from several debilitating injuries in 2001, and just weeks ago he took Mysterio to his limits in a match he wrestled with a sprained ankle. This is a tremendous chance for the former WCW Cruiserweight champion to prove himself against some really big names here tonight. He says that his ankle is fine. He told me he will have it heavily taped up as a precaution, but that he was ready for action here tonight.
                      Chris Jericho's theme song hits the P.A., and the crowd tears into him with boo's as he comes out to the stage wearing a WWF t-shirt. Jericho makes his way to the ring mocking the crowd.

                      Larry Zybisco:

                      Well, well, well if it isn't the man of 1,004 holds.
                      Mike Tenay:

                      What a great history Chris Jericho had here in WCW. Jericho dominated our Cruiserweight division with an iron fist, and was responsible for the unmasking of several of our masked luchadores, including Juventud Guerrera back in 1998. Who can forget his classic feud with Dean Malenko?

                      Despite his history here in WCW, Jericho was forced to compete here tonight against his will after being cheated in a match by WCW Owner Shane Mcmahon. Chris declared that he will always be loyal to the WWF, especially his boss Vince Mcmahon.
                      Larry Zybisco:

                      Yeah, yeah, yeah. Look, Jericho's a brown noser, just go on and say it already. The guy has his nose stuck so far up Vince Mcmahon's a..
                      Tony Shiavonne:

                      Alright, alright, it is what it is, but let's not forget Jericho's history right here in this ring. The man has proven himself time and time again against some of the best there is in that ring. He certainly has his hands full in this next matchup.
                      The Georgia Dome errupts into the loudest pop of the evening so far when Rey Mysterio's classic WCW music begins playing. Rey steps out wearing his ECW FTW Championship belt around his waist. Mysterio takes his time walking to the ring, high fiving as many of his fans as he can. Rey walks around the ring acknowledging his fans as they cheer him on. Rey gets to the area where Eddy is sitting with his legs propped up eating popcorn. Rey stares at Eddy for a brief moment before climbing up into the ring.

                      Mike Tenay:

                      What about the outstanding year that Rey Mysterio has had in the ECW so far this year guys? Rey has put on show stealing performances that have really won over the ECW fans. He has held the ECW FTW championship belt for a majority of the year, and having him back here in this setting is really something special guys. I can't wait to see him in action again live in person.
                      The fans applaud the WWF/WCW Unified Cruiserweight Champ, The Ultimo Dragon when he comes out last. The Dragon gets a respectable ovation from the fans on his way to the ring

                      Summary:

                      Ultimo Dragon stands his ground in the center of the ring. Dragon unstraps his Unified WCW/WWF Cruiserweight championship belt from around his waist, and hands it to the referee as the bell rings. The Dragon starts the match off with Chris Jericho as Rey and Juvy assume their positions in their corners.

                      The Dragon and Jericho cautiously circle each other in the ring. Chris Jericho suddenly surprises Juventud Guerrera with a tag by slapping him on his chest. Jericho slides out of the ring, out of reach of Ultimo Dragon. Chris Jericho backs away from the ring smiling at Ultimo Dragon as Juventud slowly enters the ring surprised. Juventud and Dragon focus on each other in the ring as Jericho keeps a safe distance on the outside. Juvy and Dragon begin slowly circling each other, pawing out for a tie up. Ultimo Dragon quickly lands a lightning fast leg kick to Juvy's thigh. Juventud winces in pain as he backs away out of range from Ultimo Dragon. Juventud nods his head at Dragon acknowledging the impressive strike with respect. Dragon nods back at Juvy as they both slowly re-engage into striking range. Both men slowly, cautiously approach each other with their hands up. Juventud uses quick footwork to cut a sharp angle, moving around to Dragon's side. Juvy throws a lightning fast kick at Dragon from an awkward angle. Ultimo Dragon snaps with his amazing reflexes to block the kick, grab Juvy's leg, and spin around to take his other leg out with a Leg Sweep. Juvy falls back down to his back, but immediately kips back up to his feet. Dragon throws a kick towards Juvy's midsection, but Juvy quickly blocks it. Juvy grabs Dragon's leg. Dragon quickly throws a hard Enziguiri, but Juvy ducks under. Dragon brings his foot back up to hit Juvy in the chin. Juvy falls backwards into the canvas clutching his jaw.

                      Ultimo Dragon pulls Juventud Guerrera up to his feet, and whips him into the corner. Dragon handsprings across the ring into the corner with his Handspring Elbow Smash. Juvy quickly moves out of the corner at the last second, sending Dragon into the turnbuckles. Ultimo Dragon smashes into the corner, and Juvy proceeds to rip into his chest with a flurry of hard, loud chest chops. Juvy hits Dragon with a quick flurry of five brutal chops to the chest, causing him to collapse down in the corner. Juvy pulls Dragon up, climbs up the turnbuckle, and hammers down on his face with punches. Dragon takes two punches to the face before picking Juvy up out of the corner. Juvy quickly rolls back, and flips Dragon through the air with a Monkey Flip. Ultimo Dragon flips all the way over in mid air to land on his feet. Juvy quickly kips up to his feet, and spins around. Ultimo Dragon snaps Juvy in the face with a hard, fast kick that echoes through the Georgia Dome. Everyone in the crowd lets out a lout "OH!" as Juvy slowly falls over to the canvas.

                      Ultimo Dragon walks over to the ropes, and points out at Jericho as he remains on the outside watching. Chris Jericho gives Dragon a golf clap round of applause as he roams the entrance isle just in front of the ring.

                      Juventud Guerrera slowly begins to move around on the mat recovering his senses as Dragon approaches him. Ultimo Dragon scoops up one of Juvy's legs, and puts him into a Half Boston Crab. Dragon pulls back hard on Juvy's previously injured ankle. Juventud cries out loud as Dragon cranks back on him. Juventud screams out loud as he fights through the pain, and inches his way over to the nearby ropes.

                      Ultimo Dragon releases the hold. Juventud attempts to tag out to Rey Mysterio in the nearby corner, but Dragon pulls him away from him. Dragon pulls Juvy up to his feet, and drops him into the canvas with a Delayed Vertical Suplex. Juventud arches his back up off of the mat in pain as Dragon rises back up to his feet. Ultimo Dragon pulls Juvy up to his feet, and whips him into the ropes. Dragon attempts to scoop Juvy up for a Backbreaker, but Juvy quickly catches him with a 720 Tilt-a-Whirld Headscissor Takedown. Juvy sends Dragon flying across the ring, and tries to crawl his way over to Rey for a tag.

                      Rey reaches out to Juvy as he crawls over to him slowly. Ultimo Dragon recovers up to his feet as Juvy just barely reaches Rey in the corner. Rey Mysterio leaps into the ring with Ultimo Dragon, and the Georgia Dome goes wild.

                      Rey runs into the ropes across from Ultimo Dragon, and springs towards him with great speed. Dragon takes a swing with a Lariat, but Rey ducks under. Rey springs off of the opposite side, and comes back at Dragon with even more momentum. Rey leaps into the air towards Dragon with a Flying Cross Body Press, but Dragon quickly leaps up with a Dropkick, drilling him in the abdomen. Dragon knocks the wind out of Rey Mysterio, sending him down into the canvas struggling to breathe, clutching his ribs.

                      Ultimo Dragon immediately runs towards Rey, and jumps over him onto the ropes. Dragon springboards off of the ropes onto Rey with a Springboard Moonsault Splash.

                      Chris Jericho taunts Ultimo Dragon from outside the ring. Ultimo Dragon gets up off of the mats, and motions for Jericho to bring on the fight. Jericho backs away from the ring as Ultimo Dragon pulls Rey up off of the canvas. Dragon twists Rey Mysterio's arm around, and tries to jerk it out of socket. Rey Mysterio suddenly flips over to untwist his arm. Mysterio reverses the twist onto Ultimo Dragon's arm, and quickly approaches the nearby ropes. Mysterio springboards up the second rope to the top, and leaps off with a Springboard Moonsault Inverted DDT. Dragon lays stunned on the mat clutching the back of his head after having it spiked into the canvas by Rey.

                      Rey Mysterio slowly gets up to his feet. Rey runs across the ring to bounce off of the ropes, but Chris Jericho suddenly reaches into the ring to trip him up. Rey Mysterio stumbles forward into the canvas face first. Chris Jericho loses it, laughing hysterically.

                      Juventud Guerrera suddenly enters the ring as Rey slowly recovers up to his hands and knees near the ropes. Chris Jericho turns his back as Juvy sprints across the ring. Juvy springboards off of Rey Mysterio's back over the top to the outside with his "Air Juvi", Somersault Plancha with a Twist. Chris Jericho turns around just in time to get hit with a flying body. Juvy crashes into Chris Jericho on the outside, leaving both of them sprawled out motionless as if they had just been ejected from a moving vehicle.

                      Rey Mysterio and Ultimo Dragon slowly recover simultaneously in the ring as Jericho and Juvy remain on the ground on the outside. Ultimo Dragon approaches Rey Mysterio, and drills his head into the canvas with a quick Tornado DDT. Dragon tries to pin Mysterio, but Mysterio gets his leg up on the nearby ropes. Chris Jericho and Juventud Guerrera both begin to simultaneously recover on the outside. Juventud backs Jericho into the steel guardrail with several stiff chest chops.

Rey stumbles backwards out of ring between the bottom ropes.

                      Rey falls over off of the apron to the floor as Juvy and Jericho exchange chest chops nearby. Ultimo Dragon ascends the turnbuckles in the nearby corner, and the entire crowd in the Georgia Dome stands up to their feet. Ultimo Dragon flies through the air off of the top rope to the outside onto Rey, Juvy, and Jericho with a Moonsault Plancha Suicida. The crowd goes crazy when Dragon crashes into the three men outside the ring. All four men collapse down to the floor as the fans cheer them on.

                      Rey Mysterio and Ultimo Dragon slowly recover near each other. Rey lands several hard punches to Dragon's face before rolling him into the ring. Juvy and Jericho simultaneously recover on the outside as Rey leaps up to the apron. Ultimo Dragon rises up to his feet in the ring as Rey springboards up to the top rope, and leaps off onto his shoulders for a Springboard Rana. Rey sends Dragon flying across the ring to the canvas.

                      Chris Jericho approaches Juvy on the outside, and drops him with a DDT into the padded floor. Juvy goes limp on the outside as he lays face down on the ground. Chris Jericho notices Ultimo Dragon laying on his back in the ring, and suddenly leaps up to the apron. Jericho reaches in, and slaps Rey on the back with a tag in.

                      The referee orders Rey Mysterio to exit the ring as Jericho quickly pounces on a downed Ultimo Dragon with punches and kicks.

                      Chris Jericho kicks down on Ultimo Dragon in the ring as Juvy begins to recover on the outside. Juvy slowly pulls himself up as Jericho puts Ultimo Dragon in his "Liontamer", Elevated Boston Crab.

Jericho crawls over to the ropes to pull himself up, but Rey Mysterio runs over to peg him in the face with his "619", Tiger Feint Kick.

                      Chris Jericho falls backwards into a rollup pinfall attempt from Ultimo Dragon.

                      Ultimo Dragon slowly recovers up to his feet as Chris Jericho goes off on the ref out of frustration. Jericho refuses to exit the ring. Several more referees come out of the back to force Chris Jericho to leave the ring as the fans boo him all the way to the back. Juventud Guerrera leaps into the ring as the crowd cheers him on.

                      Juvy and Dragon tie up in a Collar-and-Elbow clinch. Dragon hits Juvy with knees to the stomach, followed by a series of European Uppercuts. Juventud collapses down to his knees. Dragon gets behind Juvy, and places him in his "Dragon Sleeper", Inverted Facelock Hold. Juvy fades away slowly losing consciousness until he manages to get his feet out from underneath himself. Juvy springs up with his feet to flip over Dragon, reversing the Inverted Facelock Hold. Juvy stands up, and pulls Dragon up his shoulder upside down. Guerrera then spikes Dragon down into the canvas with his "Juvy Driver", Body Slam Piledriver Through Legs. Juvy falls over Dragon's unconscious body, and hooks a leg.

                      The fans all stand and cheer as Juvy rises up to his knees with fire in his eyes.

                      Rey Mysterio climbs into the ring with Juvy as the crowd swells with a standing ovation for the two men. Rey and Juvy stare each other down from across the ring as the The Ultimo Dragon is rolled out of the ring.

                      Rey extends his hand out for a handshake, but Juvy respectfully declines.

                      The two men tie up in a clinch, and Rey quickly whips Juvy into the ropes. Juvy flies back across the ring at Rey. Rey leapfrogs over Juvy, and bounces into the ropes. Juvy bounces off of the ropes on the opposite side of the ring. Rey and Juvy sprint towards each other at full speed, and simultaneously leap at each other with Flying Crossbody Presses. Rey and Juvy collide in mid air with stiff impact before falling down into the canvas. Both men roll around struggling to breath as they clutch at their ribs.

                      Juvy rolls over to the ropes, and slowly pulls himself up to his feet struggling to breath. Rey slowly rises up to his feet, and runs towards Juvy. Juvy Backbody Drops Rey over the top rope. Rey spins around in mid air to land on his feet on the apron. Juvy slaps into Rey's chest with a hard smack, causing him to collapse down to the apron in pain. Juvy runs towards the nearby corner, springs off of the adjacent ropes, and hits Rey in the face with a Dropkick as soon as he rises back to his feet.

                      Rey falls off of the apron down into the steel guardrail near where Eddy Guerrero is seated. Rey slowly pulls himself up with the railing. Eddy Guerrero suddenly throws his drink in Rey's face. Rey falls backwards to the canvas wiping the drink out of his eyes.

                      Rey pulls himself up to his feet on the outside as Juvy sprints across the ring. Juvy flies through the air over the top rope with a Somersault Splash down onto Rey on the outside, causing everyone in the Georgia Dome to let out a loud "OHH!".

                      Finish:

                      Both Rey and Juvy lay down and out on the outside as the referee begins to count them out.

                      Juventud rises up to his feet first, and rolls Rey into the ring, just barely beating the ref's count. Juvy climbs up to the apron, and ascends the turnbuckles in the corner as everyone in the Georgia Dome rises up to their feet yet again. Juvy climbs up to the top, and raises his hands up in the air. The fans in the Georgia Dome lose it when Juvy leaps off the top with his 450 Splash. Juvy crashes down into Rey with sickening force.

                      Juvy hooks one of Rey's legs for a pinfall as the referee counts.

                      NO!

                      Rey props his leg up on the nearby ropes just before the referee slams his hand down onto the canvas. The crowd gasps out loud. Juvy looks up at the referee in disbelief. Juvy slowly rises up to his feet, and scoops Rey up off the mat to his shoulder for his "Juvy Driver". Juvy carries Rey out to the center of the ring on his shoulder, but just before he drives him down, Rey scrambles around to fall backwards to his feet. Rey picks Juvy upside down, and bounces him into the canvas with a Tombstone Piledriver. The crowd gives both men a standing ovation as they lay motionless on the canvas. Rey rolls over to cover Juvy for a pinfall.

                      Aftermath:

                      The Georgia Dome goes crazy as Juventud begins emotionally celebrating in the ring. Rey Mysterio slowly recovers up to his feet as Juvy celebrates with the fans on the top rope. Juvy gets down out of the corner, and approaches Rey with a hand extended for a respectful handshake.

                      Rey looks at Juvy with frustration in his eyes. Rey declines the handshake, and rolls out of the ring. Rey grabs his ECW FTW title belt, and makes his way over to the section of the crowd where Eddy Guerrero is seated. Eddy stands up out of his seat as Rey approaches him. Security guards get in between the men as Eddy taunts Rey. Rey walks away dissapointed as Juvy continues to celebrate his big upset victory.


                      Juvy makes his exit from the ring smiling from ear to ear after proving himself in front of the massive crowd. All of a sudden the WCW Executive Commissioner William Regal walks out with a familiar old face from the old days of WCW.


                      The Georgia Dome gives JJ Dillon a respectful applause as he makes his way down the isle with Commissioner Regal. Dillon gets a microphone in the ring, and announces that the WCW would like to have a special one night only reunion to honor the original Four Horseman. The crowd loses it when Flair's theme song begins playing through the Georgia Dome.

                      The roof blows off of the Dome when the classic Four Horseman lineup walk out together on the entrance ramp.


                      Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, and Barry Whindam all walk out together, and pose for the cameras on the entrance stage. The Four Horseman walk down to the ring together as the fans loudly cheer for them.

                      The Horseman stand together in the ring holding up the Four Fingers as the cameras flash. Flair gets a microphone, and talks about the proud history of the original Four Horseman. All of a sudden Flair is interrupted when The Old School Posse from ECW come out together to the ring.


                      The crowd viciously boo Steve Corino, AJ Styles, and CW Anderson as they make their way down the entrance isle to the ring. WCW security guards try to stop them, but the men flash their VIP passes hanging around their necks. Security backs out of their way as they climb up into the ring with The Four Horseman.

                      Steve Corino gets a microphone, and gets up in Ric Flair's face.

                      Flair talks about how he respects what the Four Horseman have done in the past, but that it was time to put the past away. Corino says that he, Styles, and CW are the future, and the crowd rips into him with ear piercing boo's. AJ Styles stands face to face with Tully Blanchard as CW Anderson stares face to face with Barry Whindam. Ric Flair stands with a stoic look on his face as Steve Corino tells him that the future is now.

                      CW and AJ suddenly attack Tully Blanchard and Barry Whindam. The two legends fight off the young bucs, but are quickly overwhelmed when Steve Corino hands the mic over to Flair, and proceeds to jump in.

                      Arn Anderson shocks the crowd when he pulls Tully Blanchard up off of the canvas into the position for a DDT. Arn's nephew CW puts Whindam in the position for a DDT as Ric Flair looks on, holding the microphone. AJ Styles gets drinks thrown at him when he floors JJ Dillon with hard punches.

                      Arn and CW Anderson simultaneously drop Tully Blanchard and Barry Whindam with DDT's. The crowd tears the place up with violent boo's. Ric Flair tells the crowd that they just witnessed the passing of the torch. Flair says that the tradition continues tonight, and that the Four Horseman have been reborn.

                      Ric Flair stands united with Steve Corino, AJ Styles, and CW Anderson as the new Four Horseman. Tully Blanchard, JJ Dillon, and Barry Whindam are sprawled out on the canvas as the crowd boo's the new Horseman. Flair, Arn, Corino, Styles, and CW exit the ring together to the back as EMT's tend to Whindam, Dillon, and Blanchard.


                      Tony Shiavonne:

                      Ladies and Gentleman this next match is one that all of us here in the booth have been eagerly anticipating. When you want to talk about what Chris Benoit vs Booker T means to WCW, you have to talk about how their series of matches defined this company. At a time when the WWF was doing the Attitude Era, and ECW was pushing the envelope with all that they could get away with, Benoit and Booker T put on the kind of matches that you could only find in WCW.
                      Mike Tenay:

                      Absolutely Tony. Benoit and Booker T had their first series of matches on Monday Nitro back in March of 1998. They battled to two incredible time limit draws. Then later on that spring it was the Best of Seven series between the two men leading up to an eighth match at Great American Bash that June. That series represented all that was good about WCW. Booker T and Chris Benoit put on the kind of matches that defined not only WCW, but everything that was possible in the realm of professional wrestling as far as athleticism, sport, and action.
                      Larry Zybisco:

                      The thing I love about this matchup is that it is all about respect and class. These are two world class athletes. Two tough guys that just want to be the best. There hasn't been any goofy attack's, or sleezy storylines involved in this fued, it's always been about respect. To me that is what pro wrestling should be all about.
                      The Georgia Dome rises to it's feet to cheer as Booker T's classic WCW Harlem Heat theme song hits the sound system. Booker T comes out to a massive ovation as he marches to the ring with a focused look in his eyes.

                      Chris Benoit's music plays, and the Dome errupts into a massive pop. Chris Benoit steps out to the stage with an emotional look on his face. The crowd stand and cheer The Crippler on as he stands on the stage soaking it in for the final time.

                      Chris Benoit's eyes water up, but he chokes back the tears. Benoit takes a few deep breaths, and makes his final walk to the ring. Benoit slowly steps up to the apron of the ring, and pauses as the crowd cheers him on loudly. Benoit slowly looks around at the massive jam packed arena as they stand and cheer for him. Chris enters the ring, and immediately sets his sights on Booker T across the ring. Booker paces back and forth like a caged animal, ready for redemption. Ready to prove himself.

                      Summary:

                      The crowd explodes with goosebump inducing cheers as the bell rings. Benoit and Booker T step out to the center of the ring face to face. The two men stare into each other's eyes without saying a word. The crowd swells to incredible volume as the two men simultaneously take their eyes off of each other to look around at the electric Georgia Dome crowd.

                      Camera's flash as the two men look around at the amazing sight of the crowd. The two men slowly back away from each other, and cautiously begin circling.

                      Benoit and Booker T lunge in towards each other for a Collar-and-Elbow tie up. The two men explosively jerk and rip at one another trying to control each other in the clinch. Booker T forces Benoit back into the corner, but Benoit pivots out away from it. Booker pushes back on Benoit towards the opposite corner, but Benoit cuts a sharp angle with his footwork.

                      Tony Shiavonne:

                      Absolutely one of the most talented, beloved figures in WCW history. Chris Benoit from the bottom of our hearts we thank you for all you did for not only WCW, but for the entire pro wrestling industry. You had one hell of a career, and it was an honor for all of us here in the commentary booth to watch you perform each and every week. On behalf of all of us here in the booth, Tenay, Zybisco, Chris Benoit thank you. Thank you and godspeed my friend. You will be missed.
                      Mike Tenay:

                      We have seen the final match from Chris Benoit, and I have to say that he will always be remembered by me as a true all time great. Watching the man perform in WCW was always an absolute pleasure. So many classic matches. When WCW lost Chris Benoit in 1999, it was a devastating loss. Now that he's walked away from the sport altogether, I don't think the sport will ever be the same. Chris Benoit you will be missed.
                      Larry Zybisco:

                      How about this attack from Booker T after the match? You know, some guys really make me sick sometimes. The man beat you fair and square. Swallow your pride like a man, and give respect when it's due. You don't lose your cool and attack your opponent from behind. That's not a man, that is a coward. I have lost a lot of respect for Booker T here tonight.
                      Tony Shiavonne:

                      What about Eddy Guerrero. He just walked away!? That was his friend. His brother, and he just left him.
                      Mike Tenay:

                      You have to wonder where Eddy's head is at right now. He was not invited to compete here tonight, and I think he's bitter about it. Eddy seems to be bitter about a lot of things these days. Eddy is set to take on another one of his old friends in Dean Malenko when they battle for the ECW World Championship at the upcoming November To Remember pay per view in two months at The Spectrum in Philadelphia.
                      Tony Shiavonne:

                      That is correct Mike, and lets spend some time talking about what Dean Malenko has done in Extreme Championship Wrestling so far this year. Malenko was always one of those wrestlers that gave it 100% each and every time he stepped into the WCW ring during his career.
                      Mike Tenay:

                      Absolutely Tony. Dean Malenko may be the absolute best world champion in pro wrestling today. His technical wrestling and submission skills have been insurmountable in ECW. He won his first ever World Championship from Terry Funk at the ECW Heatwave pay per view back in July. In August he went toe to toe with the Japanese MMA phenom Kazushi Sakuraba, and pinned his shoulders to the mat clean in what has been called the Match of the Year. Malenko has his hands gripped tightly around the ECW World Championship, and says that he wants to retire as a World Champ.
                      Larry Zybisco:

                      The thing I've always loved about Dean Malenko is that he never has been one to walk around poking his chest out. He's never tried to look or sound tough, he just is. He never runs his mouth, he does all of his talking in the ring.

                      Dean Malenko claims that he is The Man in pro wrestling right now, but someone forgot to tell him that if you want to be the man, you have to beat the man, and tonight he will finally get that chance.

                      Flair takes three steps on the apron dazed and confused before flopping down on the apron face first like a falling tree.

                      The Nature Boy rolls off of the apron, and bounces off of the floor below as Arn Anderson comes scampering around the corner to help revive him. Dean Malenko waits patiently in the ring as Arn tries to revive Ric Flair on the outside. Flair slowly recovers up to his feet with the help of Arn Anderson.

                      Flair rolls back into the ring to break the count. Flair circles Dean Malenko briefly before rolling back out of the ring under the bottom rope. Malenko keeps his cool, and backs away to wait patiently. Flair speaks with Arn on the outside discussing his strategy as the ref resumes his count.

                      Flair rolls back under the ropes into the ring as the ref reaches 8. Flair and Malenko cautiously circle each other before re-engaging in a tieup. Dean quickly flips Flair into the canvas with an Arm Drag Takedown into an Armbar. Flair quickly, frantically flops his way over to the nearby ropes to break the hold.

                      Ric Flair rises up to his knees, and begs for mercy from Dean Malenko. Dean approaches Ric Flair, and proceeds to punch down on Flair's skull with closed fisted punches. The referee gets in Dean's face screaming for him to open up the punches. Arn Anderson suddenly jumps up on the apron to protest the closed fisted strikes, and the referee becomes distracted. Flair lands a low blow to Malenko's groin as the ref orders Arn to get down off of the apron.

                      Dean Malenko falls over holding his groin in pain as Ric Flair slowly recovers up to his feet. Dean crawls over to the corner of the ring to sit against the turnbuckles and attempt to catch his breath after the hard strike to the groin from Ric Flair. Ric Flair stumbles his way over to the corner, and pulls Dean Malenko up to his feet. Flair digs in with devastating chops to the chest. Flair pauses in between each chest chop to let out a loud "WHOOOO!".

                      Nature Boy rolls Malenko out of the corner with a Snap Mare Takedown, and struts towards him with his trademark strut. Flair props Malenko up into a seated position, and locks him into a tight Sleeper Hold. Flair chokes the life out of Ric Flair in the sleeper, even propping his legs up on the ropes for extra leverage as the ref gets down into Malenko's face to check for consciousness.

                      Malenko fights to stay alive until Flair eventually releases the hold. Flair gets up to his feet as Malenko lays on the mat gasping to catch his breath. Ric Flair drops his knee across Malenko's forehead. Malenko's body goes limp as Ric Flair rises up, and struts across the ring with his classic strut.

                      Ric Flair struts across the ring, and screams out at the crowd.

                      WHOOOOOO!

                      The crowd boo's Flair as he diverts his attention back to Dean Malenko. Flair pulls Malenko up to his feet, and attempts to lift him up into the air for a Hanging Vertical Suplex. Dean Malenko stuffs it with his leg, and catches Flair in a Small Package Rollup.



                      1....







                      2.......










                      NO!

                      Flair barely kicks out at 2 and 7/8ths. Malenko remains on the canvas stunned from the kneedrop as Ric Flair gets up angry, shoving the referee back for the fast count. The referee shoves Flair back, and points to the WCW emblem on his shirt, reminding him who is in charge of the match.

                      Flair backs away from the ref, and goes to pull Malenko up off of the mat. Malenko surprises Flair with a series of hard punches to the face. The crowd explodes as Malenko backs Flair into the corner with left and right handed punches.

                      Flair catches Malenko in between punches with a quick poke in the eyes that the ref misses. Malenko screams out loud and stumbles backwards clutching his eyes.

                      Flair almost stumbles over to the mat dizzy from the punches, but manages to grab the ropes to keep his balance. Flair approaches Dean Malenko, and drops him into the canvas with a Backdrop Suplex.

                      Flair takes a brief moment to recover his senses before going for his Figure Four Leglock. Flair goes for the Figure Four, but gets cought again by Dean Malenko with another Small Package Rollup.



                      1.....












                      2....
















                      KICKOUT!

                      Flair kicks out to avoid the pinfall by the skin of his teeth as the crowd gasps out loud.

                      Ric Flair pushes the referee down to the canvas out of frustration, and proceeds to kick down on Dean Malenko as he tries to recover. Flair pulls Dean Malenko up, and reddens his chest with sickening chest chops.

                      Ric Flair drives Malenko back down into the canvas with his Underhook Suplex. Flair struts his way to the corner, climbs up to the second rope facing the crowd, raises his arms, and screams out another "WHOOO!".

                      Flair climbs his way up to the top rope as Dean Malenko begins to recover. Flair starts to leap off the top with his Flying Crossbody Press, but Malenko hits him in the face with punches before he leaps. Dean Malenko tosses Flair down off of the top rope into the canvas. Dean slowly pulls Ric Flair back up to his feet, but Flair suddenly fires a hard chest chop at him. Flair backs Malenko away from him with another brutal chop that echoes throughout the Georgia Dome. Flair whips Malenko into the ropes across the ring, and attempts a Back Body Drop. Malenko quickly drills Flair in the knee with a hard Dropkick as he's slouched over.

                      Finish:

                      Flair collapses over to the mat clutching his knee in pain as Dean slowly recovers up to his feet. All of a sudden, Arn Anderson climbs up on the apron again trying to distract Dean Malenko in order to buy Ric Flair some time.

                      The ref orders Arn to get down off of the apron as Dean Malenko approaches him. Ric Flair crawls up behind Dean Malenko, and rolls him up as he's distracted by Arn Anderson.

                      Flair rolls Malenko up tight with two hands full of his tights, nearly ripping his trunks all the way off.




                      1....

















                      2....
























                      ALMOST!

                      Malenko barely manages to kick out as the crowd gasps.

                      Suddenly as Arn stands up on the apron, Dawn Marie approaches him from behind. Dawn climbs up on the apron, and devastates Arn Anderson with a low blow to his groin. The crowd goes wild as Arn falls over to the apron in agony.

                      The crowd cheers on as Dean and Flair simultaneously rise up to their feet. The two men stand in front of each other exhausted as they exchange chest chops in the center of the ring. Flair throws a right hook at Malenko, but Malenko drops under it. Flair spins all the way around, and is met in the face with Malenko's Jumping Calf Kick.

                      Flair falls over to the mat unconscious as Malenko struggles to rise back up to his feet. Dean slowly pulls Flair up to his feet, and lifts him high up in the air in his Brainbuster Suplex. Malenko drops Flair into the canvas folding him in half.

                      The Georgia Dome rises to it's feet and screams at the top of it's lungs when Dean Malenko rises up to stand at Flair's feet. Malenko looks down at Flair, and then back up at the fans as they blow the roof off of the Dome.

                      Malenko picks Flair's legs up, and locks him into the Texas Cloverleaf.

                      Malenko struggles to roll Flair over as he tries to fight it off. As Flair fights to keep from being rolled over the rest of The Four Horseman come running out of the back.


                      Steve Corino, AJ Styles, and CW Anderson all come sprinting out of the back dressing room as the crowd boo violently.

                      Suddenly as they get halfway down the entrance isle, the rest of The Triple Threat come running out behind them.



                      Shane Douglas, Chris Candido, Sunny, and Francine come running out behind Corino, CW, and Styles. The Triple Threat attack The Horseman just before they get a chance to save Flair in the ring.

                      The crowd goes wild as Malenko finally manages to roll Flair over in the Texas Cloverleaf. Flair screams out loud in pain, shaking his head refusing to submit. Arn Anderson lays on the floor holding his groin as he quivers in pain. Shane Douglas brawls with AJ Styles, and Chris Candido brawls with CW Anderson as Dawn Marie, Francine, and Sunny all gang up on Steve Corino. Dawn Marie jumps on Corino's back clawing at his eyes as Sunny and Francine kick and scratch at him to keep him out of the ring.

                      Dean Malenko pulls back to stretch The Nature Boy out in the Texas Cloverleaf until Flair can take no more. Ric Flair taps out due to the pain.

                      Aftermath:

                      Dean Malenko triumphantly raises his arms in the air after defeating "The Man". The brawl continues on the outside of the ring until The Four Horseman retreat up the entrance isle together. Shane Douglas, Chris Candido, Sunny, Dawn Marie, and Francine all enter the ring to celebrate with Dean Malenko as the crowd gives him an emotional standing ovation. Douglas and Candido pick Malenko up on their shoulders to carry him around the ring as he holds his ECW World Championship belt high up in the air.


                      Tony Shiavonne:

                      Well guys, it's been one heck of a night, but we are not done yet. Would you believe it if I told you that we still have a match for the WCW World Heavyweight Championship?

                      This upcoming match is for all of the marbles guys. This is the big one. WCW vs WWF right now. This is it.
                      Mike Tenay:

                      You got that right Tony, this is the match that could have a factor on the future of this company. Shane Mcmahon has been fighting to resurrect WCW ever since he appeared on Nitro six months ago. Shane Mcmahon has been relying on Diamond Dallas Page, the WCW Peoples Champion, and so far DDP has not let Shane down.

                      He defeated The Undertaker at Summerslam in a Hell in a Cell match that people will talk about for the rest of time. Diamond Dallas Page has informed Shane Mcmahon that he can get on his back, and he will carry this company to the promised land. So far he's put his money where his mouth is.

                      Tonight DDP is in for the fight of his life when he takes on The Rock. The Rock beat Booker T for the WCW title at Summerslam fair and square, and is a force the likes of which we have never really seen before in WCW guys. There is no doubt that DDP is in for the fight of his life tonight gentleman. It's not only a matchup for the biggest prize in this sport, but this is also a battle to see who the real Peoples Champion is. The Rock is the WWF's Peoples Champ, and we all know that DDP has always been the Peoples champ of the WCW. If Page can win this match it will be a huge step forward in the attempt to revive the WCW back to life. Page absolutely has to bring the title back home tonight, or this may all very well be a One Night Stand. Literally.
                      Larry Zybisco:

                      Hey, listen, you guys want to talk about how this will be DDP's fight of his life, and all these people want to talk about how he doesn't stand a chance up against The Rock. Even The Rock wanted to run his mouth about how old DDP was.

                      Let me tell you something. DDP may be old, but he's tough, and he has a lot of experience. He will not give up tonight. We're talking about a man that dropped Randy Savage. Goldberg. Chris Benoit, Bret Hart. Diamond Dallas Page is the real deal, and I think he's got more of a chance to bring this thing home than people are giving him.
                      Tony Shiavonne:

                      The time has finally come ladies and gentleman, lets go down to the ring for the return of our legendary special guest ring announcer. Michael Buffer!

                      Ladies and gentleman, this match is for the WCW Heavyweight. Championship. Of the World!

                      Are you ready?!

                      Wrestling fans. Are you READY!?

                      For the thousands in attendance....

                      And the millions watching around the World....

                      From the beautiful Georgia Dome in Atlanta Georgia...

                      Ladies and gentleman....

                      LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE!
                      The Georgia Dome blows up as Diamond Dallas Page makes his way out of the back, and slowly walks his way to the ring. Page looks around at the crowd with a focused look in his eyes as the fans cheer him on. Page makes his way to the ring with a slow walk as he takes in the loud reaction from the fans.

                      The Rock's music hits, and the fans get just as loud for him. The Rock comes out to a surprisingly loving reaction from the fans as he struts his way to the ring with his head held high. The Rock enters the ring, and poses for the crowd as the cameras flash. Page sits patiently waiting as the Rock poses for the fans. Page and The Rock pace in their corners staring across the ring at each other like two caged animals. Both men get equally loud reactions from the crowd as Buffer does their introductions.

The Rock lands two quick, hard shots to Page's jaw. Page falls back dazed and confused. The Rock lands a third unanswered punch to Page's jaw, and Page goes down.

                      The Rock drops down to one knee adjusting his jaw, looking down at Page breathing heavily. The Rock pulls DDP up, and keeps the crowd hot throughout the opening minutes of the match with more punches, kicks, and slams. Page gets driven into the mat with a Body Slam, Swinging Neckbreaker, and Overhead Belly to Belly Suplex. The Rock target's Page's back after noticing him clutching at it in pain. The Rock kicks down at Page's back several times before locking him in the Camel Clutch. Rock stretches back on Page, but Page fights through the pain. Page struggles to breathe as The Rock does further damage to his back in the Camel Clutch. The Rock releases the hold, scoops DDP up off of the mats, whips him into the ropes, and nearly breaks him in half across his knee with a Backbreaker.

                      Page goes down hard, and lays on the canvas motionless as Rocky struggles to get up to his feet. The Rock pulls Page up by his hair, and whips the back of his head into the canvas with a stiff Russian Leg Sweep.

Page's knee smashes into The Rock's forehead, knocking him unconscious. Page struggles to pull The Rock up off of the mat. Page whips Rock into the ropes, and scoops him up for a Tilt-a-Whirl slam.

                      Page cringes in pain after the slam as The Rock lays motionless. Both men lay down on the mat for several moments until The Rock finally shows signs of life.

                      Page remains down clutching his back as The Rock pulls himself up. Page works his way up with the ropes as The Rock approaches him from behind.

                      The Rock puts Page into the position for a "Rock Bottom" through the commentator's table, but Page counters it with a "Diamond Cutter" out of nowhere.

                      The two men drop down through the table, sending papers, monitors, and debris flying through the air. The Georgia Dome goes wild as the two men lay in the wreckage of the table. DDP's entire face is covered in blood as the two men lay motionless.

                      • Re: ECW: The 2001 WWF buyout. (September's Best Thread!)

                        One of those rare reviews by WMS - ShinobiMusashi's WCW ONS
                        -It’s about time I reviewed you Shin’, here it goes…
                        -Loved the opening with the WWF invaders trying to get in. Typical Vince with his line to the security guard, nice touch. Quality Control over power the WCW guys and they enter the building. Sets things up nicely for the rest of the evening…
                        -Awesome idea to have Space Odyssey play along to classic WCW images. Classy.
                        -Nice opening.
                        -Commentary is a mixed bag in Fan Fic, but you nailed it there with the introduction. Commentary should be used to tell a story, you did this well, and helped build up DDP/Rock in the process.
                        -Liked the early interchange in Show/Awesome, with Show exerting his dominance.
                        -Telling a good story from the very beginning with a power struggle, Show being the stronger and more dominant man.
                        -Giant pulling Awesome up by his mullet made me giggle.
                        -I like Show/Giant losing control of the match after attempting a big splash, a move out of his comfort zone ends up costing him control, a good and realistic addition.
                        -Suicide Plancha spot rocked.
                        -Awesome thinks he’s a cruiser, loving the high risk moves, trying to keep Show off his feet.
                        -Your description of Awesome’s attempt to nail his finisher was well written.
                        -Ref bump!
                        -I’d love to see Show do a release German Suplex.
                        -Brilliant description for when Awesome finally manages to hoist Show up, awesome stuff (no pun intended.)
                        -Show kicks out!
                        -A Double DQ makes a lot of sense, it keeps both big men strong. Awesome looked like a beast for hitting the powerbomb, and Show looked strong too for kicking out.
                        -Jim Duggan returning is random but it makes sense for a ONS deal, I guess.
                        -I dunno how to react, I know Duggan had a weapon but Quality Control just went from dominating WCW guys, to getting their ass kicked by Duggan. Something to think about…
                        -Eddy’s in the building!
                        -I’d happily pay to see this four-way-dance. Fuck, I may pay you for the honour of reading it!
                        -Four way dances > Fatal 4 Way’s!
                        -Jericho immediately tagging out, classic heel move!
                        -Liked the exchange between Dragon and Guerrera, Dragon’s lightning quick kick resulting in an acknowledging nod from Guerrera – awesome.
                        -First paragraph was a very engaging read, Guerrera and Dragon fit together so perfectly and you deal with their styles very well. A good piece of writing.
                        -Fuck, that monkey-flip spot sounds awesome. May have to steal it…
                        -You write Jericho perfectly. I try to capture a bit of his character with my version of Alex Shelley.
                        -Half Boston Crab , me and you are bringing this move back to prominence!
                        -Great counter by Juvi to bring in the fresh man, Mysterio. A Mysterio-Dragon showdown, it’s on!
                        -Jericho is such a dick, love Juvi hitting Air Juvi to shut him up for a little bit.
                        -This is awesome stuff, hard-hitting, high flying action and you’re doing very well to make sure it’s not all over the place. Matches with four participants can be a bitch to write.
                        -Huge spot with Dragon taking out all three guys. I liked it.
                        -Did Rey use the 619 in 2001?
                        -Nonetheless, awesome spot there with Rey and Juvi teaming up to take out Jericho. I’m shocked he’s the first elimination.
                        -Loved the quick elimination after Jericho’s elimination, very typical of ‘dance matches’.
                        -Guerrero’s involvement made me mark out. I’d love a Rey/Eddie feud, you’d do a brilliant job.
                        -Holy shit, that finish was absolutely fantastic. It did the rest of the match justice. Two awesome false finishes, and I love that you went with La Magistral to finish it. That’s a special move to end a special match.
                        -Post match was interesting, Rey not going with the handshake. Definitely planting the seeds for Rey/Eddie. I’m excited!
                        -Had a feeling we’d see these two stables interact with each other, I like it.
                        -Flair turning on the 4 Horseman, nice! That really puts over Old School Posse too, a good segment.
                        -Good use of commentary to build the match, once again.
                        -I can’t bring myself to watch a Benoit match, but it doesn’t feel as weird reading one for some reason.
                        -Brilliant start paragraph, really sums up the atmosphere, it made for a good read and got me in the mood too.
                        -I like how the referee had to force apart the two guys after the first tie-up. Intense.
                        -The exchange of chops and blows was fun, made me envisage a real in your face, strong style, battle.
                        -This is an out and out brawl, an absolute war, I’d expect nothing less given the two competitor’s and their history.
                        -Counter for counter: brilliant.
                        -You do all of the little small things brilliantly, this is important when writing a match.
                        -First fall goes to Booker, takes a hell of a move to put him 1-0 up. What is more is that you set up a good story for the match with Benoit going behind. Good move.
                        -Fantastic opening to the second fall with Benoit locking in the Crippler. Some great pieces of summary leading to Booker escaping the hold only for Benoit to equal the scores via a roll-up. Keeps both men strong going into the final and decisive fall. Smart booking.
                        -“Booker T staggers backwards a few steps before firing back at Benoit with a hard elbow to the side of his head. Sweat flies off of Benoit's head due to the hard elbow. Benoit stumbles back dazed from the shot.” – brilliant description.
                        -Great nearfall there, I thought Book had him with the BookEnd, and then when Benoit locked in the German, I thought Booker would have one last kick out left in him. Thrilling end, and an awesome contest. What an effort, great job Shin’!
                        -Holy shit! SWERVE!
                        -That’s brilliant, just brilliant! Well played!
                        -Oh, gotta love the Sharpshooter ending, nice shout-out to Bret. This was one of the finest matches I’ve read in Fan Fic in 2012. Awesome.
                        -Even Eddie loved it!
                        -Holy shit Booker! Eddie being a coward rocked, and Malenko making the save rocked further. Good booking, you’re planting the seeds for a lot of Eddie feuds against former friends. Smart.
                        -Dawn Marie, mmmmm
                        -Malenko’s title reign has been one of the staples of your fic.
                        -Opening of the encounter rocked. This is wrasslin.
                        -Standoff, and back to a lock-up. Nice.
                        -Love how both guys are fighting hold for hold, a struggle to gain control in the early goings.
                        -Classic Flair dazed and confused spot
                        -Malenko waiting for Flair threw me a bit, I’d love to see him be a bit more ruthless and calculated, even if he is a face. Letting Flair get some time on the outside seems foolish to me.
                        -I understand Flair reworking on strategy on the outside, it’s smart but you could have built up to that in another way perhaps.
                        -Malenko quickly regains control, good.
                        -Flair really is the dirtiest player in the game! Low blow to turn the tables. Good stuff.
                        -Loved the counter to the vertical suplex, pictured it perfectly too. That rocked!
                        -Malenko catching Flair off guard with the small packages is a smart move, the face in peril catching the heel out of nowhere. Makes sense.
                        -This match is great, very logical and flows well.
                        -Go Dawn! Wooooo!
                        -I have a hard time to believe Flair can or could ever do a jumping calf kick
                        -Awesome ending, loved Malenko locking in the hold, and then the two factions brawling as Flair tried to grit and fight through the pain, only to succumb. Terrific!
                        -You are hitting this out of the park, home run. What a show.
                        -Commentary is right on the money again, great job of putting over this main event.
                        -Loved you using the term ‘caged animals’ to describe Page and Rock.
                        -The punch for punch beginning was great.
                        -Smart to target the back. The Rock Bottom hurts the back too, so it all builds to a crescendo.
                        -My only gripe is that some of the moves the guys are doing aren’t their traditional moves. My advice is typing the guys name on wiki and scrolling down to their moveset and paying a bit attention to that when writing the matches. It helps massively.
                        -This is enjoyable but it’s a little weak in comparison to your last two bouts. I think you may have burned yourself out a little. It happens to all of us though, so I wouldn’t worry.
                        -DDT and now Samoan Drop. Slow start but this is starting to heat up!
                        -You’re doing a good job with selling and psychology. Both men being fatigued, DDP’s back, etcetera.
                        -Another ref bump, two in four matches is slightly overkill, but 2001 loved it’s ref bumps.
                        -DDP saved by the ref bump! Keeps Rock strong if he goes on to lose. Good.
                        -Loved the Rock Bottom into Diamond Cutter counter, awesome transition and through the table! This match is really picking up now, good job.
                        -Liked Rock hitting one of his own, not wanting to win the match in that way.
                        -DDP being bloodied and battered really adds to the occasion.
                        -Shane stopping Vince ruled, you’re capturing this moment amazingly well.
                        -Vince accidentally connects with a shot to his champion, oh-oh!
                        -Diamond Cutter to Vince!
                        -Wow, what an ending. The match started off very slow but as it progressed you really did a hell of a job with it. Kudos Shin’!
                        -Amazing conclusion to the show, and the right one in my mind.
                        -That was a long ass show considering it had only four matches. I’d have loved to have seen more segments, but other than that it was awesome. Up there with one of the best I’ve read. You’ve cemented my vote for Fed of the Year, and I hope this review and your FFI elimination lights a fire up your ass because I can’t wait to read November 2 Remember!
                        -Keep rocking it, my friend!
                        Man of the world.

                          Opening Segment:

                          WCW Owner Shane Mcmahon comes out. Shane gets a mixed reaction from the crowd as he makes his way to the ring by himself. Mcmahon has a very stern, serious look on his face as he slowly walks around the ring with a microphone in his hand.


                          Shane Mcmahon:

                          What I would like to do right now, before I even call my father out here, I want to say thank you. Thank you to all of the hard working people at WCW.

                          All of the wrestlers.

                          All of the production staff.

                          All of the administrative personnel, and everyone that has worked their ass off to help me make WCW what it is. From top to bottom we have changed the entire culture of the WCW, together.

                          All of the people at WCW who have fought with me. The people that stood up to the "Empire" with me. I thank you.

                          I owe these people. These people believed in me. At a time when nobody else did. A time when not even my own father believed in me. These people became my new family.

                          Most importantly, I want to thank all of the fans that supported WCW last night. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

                          The WCW is alive and well.

                          What I want right now, is for Vince to come out here, and to give me what I deserve. I want you to come out here Vince, and give me what I earned last night. Last night my WCW put on a show that was better than anything the WWF has done in years. Come out here, and give me the respect that you owe me.
                          The crowd boo's when Vince Mcmahon makes his way out of the back wearing a neck brace due to the Diamond Cutter he endured less than 24 hours ago at the hands of DDP. Vince makes his way into the ring by himself, and stands face to face with his son. Vince looks down on Shane with a smug look while speaking into the microphone.


                          Vince Mcmahon:

                          Last night...

                          Lets talk about last night Shane.

                          As far as I'm concerned, last night never happened.

                          Last night might as well have been a dream. A boyhood dream of yours.

                          What is it exactly that you want me to do Shane? You want me to pump money into a business that nobody wants anything to do with?

                          THIS IS BUSINESS GOD DAMIT! WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME!?

                          You want a television show!? On what network? Tell me, who wants a WCW show on their network?! NOBODY!

                          WCW IS DEAD!

                          It's not coming back Shane. You need snap out of this fantasy world that you're in, and come back to reality.
                          Shane Mcmahon:

                          You want to talk about business with me?

                          Business?

                          Lets talk business Vince.

                          Lets talk about 2 million dollars.

                          The 2 million dollars you have invested in the ECW so far this year.

                          The ECW.

                          A promotion that runs in a bingo hall. A promotion that was so far in debt earlier this year, they were even worse off than WCW.

                          Now look where ECW is at. You got Paul Heyman running around like he's some kind of big shot, running his mouth about what ECW has done for this industry. You got him set up on his own show on MTV2. You got them set up on pay per views, with a roster full of names that were made in WCW.

                          You turned your back on your own son, and you helped Paul Heyman?

                          Your own flesh and blood, for Heyman? A two bit, New York cockroach hustler, and I'm the one that lives in a fantasy world?

                          I hate you Vince.

                          You aren't my father anymore, you are dead to me.

                          I will kill the WWF. I will kill ECW.

                          That's not a threat, that is a promise.

                          You think this is over?

                          This has just begun.
                          Shane walks away from his father, and walks out of the building with a disappointed, heartbroken look in his eyes. Vince stands alone in the ring thinking about what just transpired until all of a sudden.......



                          The Glass Breaks!




                          Stone Cold Steve Austin comes storming out of the back to the ring where Vince Mcmahon freezes in terror. Austin storms the ring, and takes Vince down to the ground. The crowd goes insane as Austin finally gets his hands on Vince with a flurry of punches.

                          Quality Control suddenly come sprinting out of the back to Mcmahon's rescue.


                          Test, Albert, The Wall, and The Hollies storm the ring to attack Austin. Vince rolls out of the ring as Quality Control overwhelm the Texas Rattlesnake. The crowd blows the roof off of the arena when all of a sudden Rob Van Dam comes running out to even up the odds.


                          Van Dam hits the ring with a chair, and goes to town on Quality Control. Van Daminators for everyone. Chris Jericho, and WWF Champion Kurt Angle storm the ring, and team up on both RVD and Stone Cold as the crowd lynches them with boo's.


                          Kurt Angle and Chris Jericho destroy Austin and Rob Van Dam in the ring until the most electrifying man in sports entertainment finally comes back to Cleveland Ohio!


                          The roof rattles when The Rock sprints to the ring full speed. Chris Jericho and Kurt Angle notice the massive, angry Samoan sprinting to the ring, and immediately retreat to the outside. The Rock enters the ring, and stands over Rob Van Dam and Steve Austin's unconscious, beaten bodies as Jericho and Angle stalk the outside of the ring along with Vince, and the sprawled out bodies of Quality Control.

                          Chris Jericho gets a microphone, and asks The Rock who's side he's on. Jericho talks about how The Rock dropped him with a Rock Bottom last night at One Night Stand when Jericho tried to help him. Jericho questions The Rock's loyalty to the WWF, and to Vince Mcmahon.

                          The Rock gets the microphone, and works the crowd up into a frenzy with his incredible charisma. The Rock insults Jericho & Mcmahon's intelligence, and tells them that he does not need their help. The Rock says that it was Jericho and Mcmahon's fault for him losing the WCW World Title last night. This brings out the current WCW World Champion Diamond Dallas Page . Page gets a great reaction from the fans when he walks out to the stage, and tells The Rock that he can beat him any time, any place, without anyone else's help. The Rock challenges DDP to a rematch for his WCW World Title tonight!

                          Before Page gets a chance to answer the challenge, Vince Mcmahon gets the microphone, and interrupts him. Mcmahon reminds both men who's show they are on, and who's house they are in. Mcmahon says that the only way they can have the rematch tonight on his show is if WWF can have a true representative in the match. Vince Mcmahon says that he deserves a true loyal representative in the match, and challenges both men to make it a Triple Threat Match. Vince says that nobody is as loyal to him as Chris Jericho and Kurt Angle. Vince adds Chris Jericho into the match with Page and The Rock. Page and The Rock accept the challenge, and its on!

                          Vince adds a special stipulation after both men agree to the match. The Boss informs everyone that current WWF World Champion Kurt Angle will be the special guest referee in the match, and Quality Control will be ringside to add extra security. Ausitin and Van Dam begins recovering in the ring as The Rock, Page, Jericho, Angle, and Vince take us away to commercials with a deep, intense, emotional staredown.

                          DDP will put the WCW World Championship on the line in a triple threat match against The Rock and Chris Jericho tonight!

                          Leather Strap Match: Matt Hardy vs Jeff Hardy

                          Matt and Jeff split up during the Summer after Jeff singled out Matt's poor performance in several of their disappointing tag team loses. Matt Hardy grew tired of the criticism from his brother, and snapped on him. The two attempted to settle their differences in a match last week on Raw, but Matt Hardy viciously attacked Jeff after being defeated. Matt Hardy cut a promo last week on Smackdown telling the story of how Jeff used to blame things on him when they were children. Matt said that he would often take lashings with a leather belt for things that Jeff had done, and gotten away with. A leather strap match was arranged for tonight's show shortly after Jeff heard the promo.

                          Finishing Minutes:

                          Jeff Hardy has Matt Hardy bruised and welted due to the punishing straps with the leather during the match. Jeff lands his Twist of Fate, and touches all four corners in the ring for the victory after 9:47.

                          Matt Hardy breaks down after the loss. Matt viciously attacks Jeff with the leather strap. Matt wraps the strap around Jeff's neck, and hangs him over the top rope on the outside. WWF Officials come rushing out of the back to break up the attack. Matt Hardy storms off in a fit of anger as the Officials carry Jeff back to the back. Jeff violently coughs and gags, holding his throat on the way to the back.

                          Announcement:

                          We join our commentary team of Jim Ross and Joel Gertner for some important announcements. Due to Rob Van Dam being stripped of the Intercontinental Championship title recently, the WWF will be holding an 8 man tournament over the next couple of weeks to find a new champion. Ross begins listing the names of the competitors in the tournament, but Joel Gertner tries to steal the moment, and rudely interrupts the legend. Ross is angered by Gertner, and lets him know about his rudeness. Gertner cracks back at JR with a wisecrack comment that only further angers the Oklahoman. Ross informs Gertner that he will learn to respect him either the easy way or the hard way.

                          The 8 men in the Intercontinental Championship tournament are Lance Storm, Al Snow, Kanyon, Christian, Edge, Billy Gunn, Mike Awesome, and X-Pac. Matches for the tournament begin this Thursday night on Smackdown!

                          Still image photo's of Mike Awesome's war with the WCW's Giant last night are shown prior to his match. Awesome amazed the Georgia Dome crowd when he incredibly managed to lift the Giant up and powerbomb him out of the ring through a table.

                          Awesome comes out to a nice reaction as Rikishi waits for him in the ring. Several signs are seen in the crowd stating "FEAR THE MULLET!". New official WWF licensed Mike Awesome Mullet wigs have sold like hotcakes at the live events. Hundreds of fans in the crowd can be seen wearing them.

                          Finishing Minutes:

                          Mike Awesome has weathered an early storm to fire back on the massive dancing fool. Awesome avoids the ass in the face by pushing Rikishi away from him with his boot. Awesome floors Rikishi with a stiff, nasty Lariat. Awesome pops the crowd by lifting the big man up for his "Awesome Bomb", Powerbomb. Awesome nearly puts Rikishi through the ring. Awesome finishes it off with his high flying frog splash for the 1, 2, 3. Awesome pins Rikishi after 6:03

                          Yoshihiro Tajiri Video


                          A short vignette is played with dark, oriental music playing in the background. Brief, slow motion clips are shown introducing the WWF audience to Yoshihiro Tajiri. The Japanese Buzzsaw is shown throwing kicks in a hard falling rain outdoors at night somewhere in Japan. Lightening lights up the scene momentarily at times to show brief images of Tajiri's face, showing a sinister look in his eyes as he looks into the camera.

                          Lance Storm vs D-Lo Brown

                          Neither man gets much of a reaction from the crowd. Lance Storm has been off television, and relegated to house shows since the ECW invasion came to an end after Anarchy Rulz.

                          Finishing Minutes:

                          Lance Storm completely dominates D-Lo with his supreme technical wrestling skills. Storm has a counter or reversal for all of D-Lo's offense throughout the match. Storm's sharp skills, and quick wit are too much for D-Lo to overcome. Storm devastates D-Lo with his Cradle Piledriver, and proceeds to lock him in his "Maple Leaf", Single Leg Boston Crab. D-Lo taps out after 4:55 to give Lance Storm the impressive victory.

                          WWF/WCW Unified Tag Team Championship: Kane & Edge(C) vs Kronic

                          Kane and Edge get one of the loudest ovations of the evening when they make their way out with the Unified WCW/WWF Tag Team Championship titles. Kronic wait for them in the ring as they slowly make their way to the ring together, taking time to look around at their fans on their way.

                          Finishing Minutes:

                          Kane & Edge work together fluidly to totally dominate the muscled up team of Brian Adams & Brian Clark. Clark and Adams manage to isolate Edge for a beating, but Kane soon comes in to his aid. Kane no-sells attacks from both men, and puts them down with a double chokeslam. Adams and Clark recover to their feet. Kane clotheslines Brian Adams out of the ring, and Edge drills Brian Clark with his spear to get the victory with a pinfall after 8:42.

                          WCW World Championship Triple Threat Match: DDP(C) vs The Rock vs Chris Jericho(with Kurt Angle as special guest ref, and Quality Control as ringside enforcement)

                          Chris Jericho comes out first to deep boo's from the crowd. The Rock comes out next with the biggest pop of the night. DDP makes his entrance withe the "Big Gold Belt" around his waist, ready for a fight. The ring announcer brings out special guest referee for the match, WWF Champion Kurt Angle. Angle is followed to the ring by the special enforcers for the match, Test, Albert, The Wall, and The Hollies(Quality Control). Quality Control assume their positions around the ring as Kurt Angle enters the ring with his pinstriped singlet on.

                          Finishing Minutes:

                          Chris Jericho avoids most of the damage through the course of the grueling match, allowing Page and The Rock to damn near kill each other. Jericho escapes the ring every time he is in danger, and Quality Control attacks Page and The Rock anytime they come out after him. The Rock drops DDP with the Rock Bottom, and electrifies the crowd with "The Peoples Elbow", but before he can pin DDP, Jericho attacks him from behind with a steel chair. Jericho places The Rock in the Lion Tamer, and Kurt Angle signals for the bell.

                          Angle calls an end to the match, saying that The Rock submitted to Jericho's liontamer, but he didn't. Chris Jericho is announced the winner of the match after 12:19, and is awarded the WCW World Championship title. Page and The Rock begin to recover in the ring when all of a sudden a large group of WCW wrestlers storm out of the back.

                          Booker T, Kidman, Kanyon, The Giant, Chuck Palumbo, Christian, and Sean O'haire come storming into the ring for a massive brawl with Quality Control. Chris Jericho and Kurt Angle quickly escape the scene with the WCW World Championship belt as WCW wrestlers fight with Quality Control in the ring. Jericho and Angle stand on the stage watching the brawl until suddenly they are jumped from behind.

                          Rob Van Dam and Stone Cold Steve Austin come out to the stage, and blindside Jericho and Kurt Angle. Angle and Austin fight there way down the ramp, and around the stage near the crowd as they exchange a flurry of punches. Rob Van Dam and Chris Jericho slug it out on the stage. Raw closes with an image of total chaos, and a wild, sweeping, violent 16 man brawl around the arena.

                            *****

                            Smackdown kicks off with the sounds of glass breaking as soon as we cut to the live shot of the arena. The crowd goes crazy when Stone Cold Steve Austin comes out. Austin makes his way to the ring with fire in his eyes. Stone Cold wastes no time in grabbing a microphone, and spilling his thoughts out to the crowd.


                            Stone Cold Steve Austin:

                            I'm out here right now for one thing, and right now it's the only thing that matters in this damn building. I'm sick and tired of hearing about the WCW. I'm sick and tired of hearing about Invasions and One Night Stands, I'll tell you what, I'm about ready to stomp a mudhole in somebodies DAMN ASS!

                            What it looks like to me, is that everybody has forgotten about ole' Stone Cold. Maybe all these jabroni's in the back have forgotten about who the toughest son of a bitch really is around here.

                            Lets get it strait right now. I am the toughest son of a bitch in this building right now, and THAT'S THE BOTTOM LINE, 'CAUSE STONE COLD SAID SO!

                            Vince Mcmahon. I ain't through with you boy, I ain't through with you, not by a longshot.

                            You sorry piece of trash, I know you got a lot of problems right now, but I got some news for ya.

                            The only problem you need to be worried about right now is standing in the middle of this ring, because I'm about to tear this building apart to find your sorry ass, and I'm going to whip every son of a BITCHES ASS THAT GETS IN MY WAY until I get my hands on on YOUR ASS!

                            Kurt Angle. Bring your goofy ass out here, and bring my damn belt with you son. You walk around here wearing my title, well lets get one thing strait son. You will never be able to beat me. Never in your damn life. You're wearing my title, and I want it brought back to me right now.
                            The crowd cheers when suddenly Rob Van Dam's music hits the sound system. Rob Van Dam comes down to the ring laid back and relaxed with an easy going demeanor. Van Dam high fives the fans on his way to the ring. RVD gets a microphone, and fearlessly stands a few feet away from the Texas Rattlesnake as he begins speaking. Austin looks up at Van Dam as if he has lost his damn mind.


                            Rob Van Dam:

                            Hey, hold up.

                            Did you forget about last week? Right here on Smackdown last week in the #1 contenders match, I smoked your ass.

                            I respect you. You are one tough son of a bitch, but you're not better than me. I'm Rob Van Dam, I'm the Whole F*#&[email protected]^ Show.

                            I know you got screwed out of that title, but I'm the number one contender. I'm better than you.

                            You had your chance. Now you just need to go sit on the couch, drink a couple of cold ones, and watch me win the WWF World Heavyweight Championship.
                            Stone Cold Steve Austin:

                            You must be stoned out of your damn mind if you really think you beat me last week son. I whipped your long haired hippy ass all over this damn ring like I'm about to do RIGHT NOW!

                            You need to take your ass back to whatever field that you've been rolling around in, put those flowers back behind that pretty little ear before I STOMP A MUDHOLE IN YOUR DAMN ASS!
                            The crowd goes crazy when Austin and Van Damn drop their microphones, and bow up on each other. All of a sudden the music of the WWF Champion Kurt Angle comes on. Angle comes out with the WWF Championship around his waist, and a microphone in his hand. Austin and Van Dam back away from each other, and divert their attention up to the ramp.


                            Kurt Angle:

                            This is just hilarious. The two of you arguing over who deserves a shot at me. Neither one of you deserve a shot at my title. Neither one of you are real athletes. I have Olympic. Gold. Medals.

                            What do you have?

                            Other than a few bad habits, tell me what do you have?

                            I want to prove something to the both of you.

                            I want to prove to everyone else here. I am a real wrestler.

                            The two of you represent the best of the best of this Attitude trash you call wrestling. I'm about to end it all. I will beat both of you at the same time.

                            No Mercy.

                            Three weeks.

                            Three Way Dance for this title.
                            Before Van Dam and Austin can accept the challenge, Vince Mcmahon comes out to the ramp with Kurt Angle. Vince looks upset with Kurt Angle as he walks up to him on the stage.

                            Vince Mcmahon:

                            HOLD IT!

                            WAIT JUST A DAMN MINUTE!

                            What are you doing Kurt? Both of these two men deserve pink slips, not a shot at the WWF Championship. I thought I made it very clear that neither of these two men will ever get anywhere near my title.
                            The crowd swells as Austin makes his way out of the ring. Austin heads up the ramp towards Vince with his face red from anger. Vince stops Austin by offering him one more final shot at his WWF World Championship. Vince says that Austin must partner with Rob Van Dam to face Quality Control tonight in the main event.

                            Van Dam and Austin reluctantly agree to partner up for the main event tonight. Vince adds stipulations after the two men agree to the match. The Boss makes the tag match a 2 on 3 handicapped match. Vince also says that If Van Dam and Austin win, they will get a shot at Kurt Angle's WWF Championship at No Mercy in a Triple Threat Match. If they lose, both men are fired.

                            It's set. Rob Van Dam and Stone Cold Steve Austin will face Quality Control tonight!

                            WWF Intercontinental Championship Tournament Quarterfinal Match: Kanyon(WCW) vs Edge(WWF)

                            We return from the commercial break with our first match of the IC tourny. Joel Gertner and Jim Ross get into a brief argument as they step on each other's toes trying to introduce the match. There seems to be a strange tension between the two over the past couple of weeks. Jim Ross has about had enough of Joel's snarky attitude.

                            WCW Commissioner William Regal has joined JR and Joel Gertner at the commentary booth. Kanyon is already in the ring awaiting his opponent. Edge comes out to a tremendous ovation.

                            Finishing Minutes:

                            Regal puts WCW over throughout the early minutes of the match, even though Kanyon gets thoroughly dominated by Edge. Regal teases that big things are about to happen in WCW just before throwing his headset down, and climbing up on the apron of the ring with a steel chair in his hands.

                            Edge has Kanyon finished after a Downward Spiral, but Regal has the referee distracted. The crowd pops when Edge drops Regal down off of the apron with a hard punch. Regal drops the chair into the ring before he falls down to the floor. Kanyon grabs the chair as Edge is distracted with Regal. Edge notices Kanyon taking a swing out of the corner of his eye, and ducks out of the way. Edge kicks Kanyon in the midsection, causing him to drop the chair.

                            Edge picks up the chair, and slams it across Kanyon's back. The referee immediately disqualifies him. Kanyon wins via DQ after 4:19.

                            All of a sudden Christian comes sprinting to the ring. Christian blindsides Edge with a spear before violently attacking him with the steel chair.

                            Regal, Kanyon, and Christian destroy Edge in the ring until all of a sudden the Fires of Hell explode!

                            Kane comes out to help his tag team partner. Kane is suddenly attacked just outside the ring when more WCW wrestlers come running out of the back. DDP, Booker T, Ultimo Dragon, and The Giant all come out to gang up on the Big Red Machine. Regal and Kanyon take Edge's lifeless body outside the ring, and proceed to handcuff him to the ropes in a crucified position. Christian takes the steel chair outside, and proceeds to brutally attack a defenseless Edge as he's handcuffed to the ring. Edge's face is busted wide open with a nasty gash on his forehead bleeding profusely.

                            Kane is overwhelmed on the outside until suddenly a group of WWF wrestlers come out to make the save. Jeff Hardy, Steve Blackmon, Val Venis, Road Dogg, D-Lo Brown, Rikishi, and X-Pac storm the ring to help their WWF comrades. Before they reach the ring they are ambushed from behind by more WCW wrestlers that come storming out of the back.

                            Kidman, Chuck Palumbo, Sean O'Haire, Hurricane Helms, and Chavo Guerrero come out to even up the odds, and the WWF wrestlers are all quickly overtaken in the battle. Bodies are strewn across the arena as WCW takes control of the battle with force.

                            Shane Mcmahon, Ric Flair, and Arn Anderson make their way to the ringside area as the WCW wrestlers continue to beat everyone down around the ring. Jim Ross and Joel Gertner are run out of their commentary positions when The Giant chokeslams Kane through their table. Shane Mcmahon and Ric Flair order JR and Gertner to give up their headsets, and leave their presence before they get hurt.

                            WCW has destroyed the WWF. The Arena explodes when The Rock finally comes back to Dayton Ohio!.


                            The Rock takes on WCW head on, and manages to put up a good fight before being quickly overwhelmed due to being totally outnumbered. The Giant chokeslams him through the Spanish announcers table.

                            Bodies and table wreckage lay all around the ring. Edge remains hanging by his arms totally covered in blood as Shane Mcmahon gets a microphone to address the crowd. Shane says that he's through playing games with Vince Mcmahon. Shane says that tonight, Smackdown has officially been taken hostage by WCW. Shane says that the first thing Vince needs to do is return the WCW World Championship title back to where it belongs, WCW.

                            Shane Mcmahon, Arn Anderson, and Ric Flair assume the positions to announce commentary for the remainder of tonight's show as we cut away to commercials.

                            *****

                            We return from our commercial break with Vince Mcmahon addressing his Quality Control team backstage. Vince tells Test, Albert, The Wall, and The Hollies to remain focused on taking out RVD and Austin. Vince confidently tells them that he has plans to take care of WCW tonight.

                            WWF Intercontinental Championship Tournament Quarterfinals Match: Lance Storm(WWF) vs Billy Gunn(WWF)

                            We cut to the ring where both competitors are already in the ring awaiting a bell. Shane, Flair and Arn put over WCW throughout the match on commentary.

                            Finishing Minutes:

                            Lance Storm outclasses Billy Gunn throughout the contest. Storm's technical grappling prowess makes Billy Gunn look like an amateur as he counters every move, and improves his position with ease. Gunn is nearly submitted several times through the match as he repeatedly finds himself falling into Lance Storm's submissions. Flair and Arn Anderson are impressed with Storm's ability throughout the match.

                            Lance Storm catches Billy Gunn in the one submission that he fails to escape from, his "Maple Leaf", Half Boston Crab. Billy Gunn taps out after 4:51. Lance Storm advances to the next round of the IC title tournament in impressive fashion.

                            Before Storm gets a chance to exit the ring, he is approached by Arn, Flair, and Shane. Shane tells Storm that he was impressed with his victory. Shane offers Lance Storm a job in WCW. Lance Storm respectfully declines. Flair and Arn attack him for turning them down. Lance Storm is beaten down by Ric Flair and Arn Anderson as we cut away to commercials.

                            A short video is played introducing the WWF audience to the newest superstar on the roster, "The Japanese Buzzsaw", Yoshihiro Tajiri. A slow motion black and white video shows Tajiri standing in the pouring rain looking into the camera with his hands put together in the praying position. Mountains can be seen in the background as Tajiri stands still looking into the camera with a Sinister look in his eyes.

                            The slow motion clips cut away to very short, half second clips of him in ECW. Very brief clips of him brutalizing his opponents with "Buzzsaw" Kicks cuts in to the video.

                            Chuck Palumbo & Sean O'Haire(WCW) vs Kronic(WWF)

                            Shane Mcmahon, Ric Flair, and Arn Anderson remain on commentary as we return from commercial break. Shane continues to degrade his father, as Arn and Flair put over the proud history of WCW. Shane Mcmahon talks about how WCW One Night Stand on pay per view was a massive success last weekend, and that the entire promotion is stronger and more motivated than ever due to the show. Chuck Palumbo and Sean O'Haire get boo'd as they make their way to the ring where Kronic already waits for them.

                            Finishing Minutes:

                            Both teams battle it out in a furious war. The two teams have slugged it out in multiple contests throughout the Summer, and have gotten to know each other well. Kronic dominate the early minutes of the match, but are soon overwhelmed by the outstanding teamwork of Palumbo & O'Haire. Sean O'Haire puts Brian Adams away at the 11 minute mark with his "Widow Maker". Palumbo and O'Haire reign supreme with the dominant victory. Shane Mcmahon, Ric Flair, and Arn Anderson give their boys a standing ovation after the match.

                            *****

                            We cut away to a backstage promo from Matt Hardy before we cut away to commercials. Matt Hardy says he has grown frustrated with his brother Jeff.

                            Handicapped Match: Stone Cold Steve Austin & Rob Van Dam vs Quality Control(Test, Albert, & The Wall)

                            We return from our final commercial break with Shane Mcmahon sending a message to the crowd as he sits ringside with Flair and Arn on commentary. Shane says that tonight's episode of Smackdown has been taken hostage by WCW, and the same thing will happen to all future WWF shows until Vince Mcmahon returns the WCW World Title to them, and gives them what they earned at One Night Stand.

                            Quality Control come out first in full force. Test, Albert, and The Wall are accompanied by The Hollies for extra support. Rob Van Dam comes out next to one of the loudest pops of the evening. Van Dam takes his time to the ring high fiving all of his fans.

                            Austin blows the roof off of the Arena when he wastes zero time in marching to the ring, and opening a can of whoop ass on all of Quality Control.

                            Finishing Minutes:

                            After destroying Quality Control in the early stages of the match, Stone Cold finds himself down and out, nearly beaten as he tries to make his way over to the corner to tag out to Rob Van Dam. Test tries to stop him from making the tag, but he manages to get close enough. The crowd gets the loudest of the entire evening when Rob Van Dam flies into the ring with a kick to Test's face. Quality Control storm the ring to gang up on Van Dam and Austin, but they manage to fend them off by working together. Test and Albert are thrown from the ring. Stone Cold drops The Wall with a Stunner, and Van Dam hits the Five Star Frog Splash.

                            Van Dam bounces off of The Wall, and rolls around in pain clutching his ribs in pain. Stone Cold covers The Wall for the pin, but RVD pushes him off right before the 3. Van Dam quickly covers The Wall for the win after 12:19. Quality Control retreat with their tail between their legs.

                            Austin and Rob Van Dam get up in each other's faces. They bark back and forth at each other for a brief moment until all of a sudden all of the WCW wrestlers come storming out of the back. Van Dam and Austin are beaten down like dogs by all of the WCW wrestlers. Shane Mcmahon enters the ring, and sends a message to Vince.

                            Shane says that these attacks will continue until he gets what he want's.

                            Shane Mcmahon is interrupted by Chris Jericho on the Jumbotron.


                            Jericho appears on a bridge somewhere in Ohio holding his WCW Championship belt. Jericho talks about how much he loves the WWF and Vince Mcmahon. Jericho then talks about how he was held back in the WCW, and never allowed anywhere near the World Championship.

                            Jericho says he refuses to be the champion of a promotion that died, R.I.P., 7 months ago.

                            Chris Jericho throws the belt over the bridge into the river.

                            The WCW World Heavyweight Championship is gone. Smackdown closes with a close up shot of Shane Mcmahon standing in the ring with his mouth wide open in shock.

                              ECW Arena
                              South Philly, PA

                              Last Week On ECW:

                              • La Parka turned on Super Crazy to join The Sinister Minister's Unholy Alliance in a tag match against the Alliance's Vader & Vampiro. The new Unholy Alliance beat Super Crazy down until The Sandman, Tommy Dreamer, Jerry Lynn, and Beulah Mcgillicutty came to his rescue. Super Crazy and La Parka were forced to vacate the tag team titles after the incident.

                              • Bam Bam Bigelow revealed that he was in Japan helping Don Frye train for his upcoming return to MMA at Pride 16: Beasts From the East on PPV all this week. Bam Bam challenged Ken Shamrock to a shoot fight at the upcoming Crossing The Line live show on MTV2 in three weeks.

                              • Paul Heyman's team of Sabu and Thug Life(New Jack & The Godfather) defeated Mick Foley's Quality Control(Stevie Richards, Bull Buchanan, and Danny Doring) in a loser leaves town 6 man street fight to secure the Extreme Rules setting in ECW for the indefinite future. The fight was one of the most violent ever televised on cable television as New Jack destroyed Quality Control with various objects, including a 3DO video game console, an Empire Strikes Back laserdisc, and a Stretch Armstrong toy. Bull Buchanan chokeslammed New Jack off of the Eagles Nest Balcony in the ECW Arena through two tables stacked on top of each other. The Godfather strung Buchanan upside down from the balcony with speaker cables, and dropped Stevie Richards with his "Pimp Drop" for the victory. Quality Control's 5 month long reign of terror in the ECW was finally brought to an end.
                              ECW Uncensored kicks off with a montage of still photographs from WCW One Night Stand last weekend. The pictures play one after another along with the audio from the show. Eddie Guerrero is shown first, arriving to the Georgia Dome to take his seat at the front row. Eddie is pictured throwing his drink in Rey Mysterio's face during the Four Way Dance. Juventud Guerrera is shown pinning ECW FTW Champion Rey Mysterio with a counter to his La Magistral rollup(which Rey used to defeat Juvy with 2 weeks ago on Uncensored). Juventud stands victorious over Rey, Chris Jericho, and the current WCW/WWF Unified Cruiserweight Champion, Ultimo Dragon in the 4 Way Dance.


                              The photos show Chris Benoit winning his retirement match against Booker T, only to be viciously attacked by him after the match. Eddie Guerrero jumped the railing as if he were about to help his old friend, but he chose not to, and turned his back on Benoit. Eddie left the Georgia Dome as Dean Malenko came racing down to the ring to help save Benoit from the savage attack.


                              The Old School Posse are shown crashing an honorary ceremony for the original Four Horseman. The Posse confronted JJ Dillon, Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Tully Blanchard, and Barry Whindam. Ric Flair and Arn Anderson turned on Blanchard, Dillon, and Whindam, and officially passed the torch to the Posse as the new incarnation of the Four Horseman. Steve Corino, AJ Styles, and CW Anderson are pictured standing proud in the ring with Flair and Arn holding up the four fingers.

                              The montage of still images continues with a picture of the proud ECW World Heavyweight Champion Dean Malenko walking to the ring with the big classic ECW belt around his waist. Malenko is shown with Ric Flair locked in the Texas Cloverleaf in the center of the ring as the new Four Horseman fight with the Triple Threat around the ring. Ric Flair taps out to the ECW World Champion, and the Triple Threat stands tall.



                              Uncensored kicks off live from the ECW Arena with a shot of the wild crowd violently chanting E! C! DUB! The camera pans around the Arena a bit showing the crowd before cutting over to Joey Styles at his commentary position in the Eagles Nest balcony of the Arena.



                              Joey Styles goes over his traditional introduction before speaking about a recent incident in Japan at the Pride 16: Beasts From The East pay per view. The show cuts away to footage from Pride 16 in Japan last monday night. Don Frye is shown in his long awaited return fight against dangerous Dutch kickboxer Gilbert Yvel with Bam Bam Bigelow in his corner. Ken Shamrock is shown at the ringside area watching the fight.


                              Frye injured his knee early on in the fight, yet weathered through the extreme pain with his incredible toughness. Gilbert Yvel resorted to illegal tactics out of desperation, and nearly gouged Frye's eyes out while trying to keep the fight standing. Frye is shown with blood red eyes, barely able to move in the ring holding himself up with the ropes as Gilbert Yvel throws strikes at him. Frye managed to get Yvel down to the ground with his superior wrestling skills, but more dirty fighting from Yvel would end the fight in a DQ. Don Frye was victorious in his long awaited return to the sport of MMA. Don Frye celebrated the victory with Bam Bam Bigelow in the ring briefly before calling out Ken Shamrock.

                              Don Frye challenged Ken Shamrock to fight him in Pride. Shamrock leaped over the barrier, and climbed up into the ring. Shamrock attempted to get face to face with Don Frye, but Bam Bam Bigelow got in between them, trying to protect an already beaten and injured Frye. Bam Bam and Shamrock got into a wild chaotic scuffle in the ring. Bam Bam Bigelow and Ken Shamrock were pulled apart by several Pride FC officials and security.

                              Uncensored cuts back to Joey Styles at his booth in the Eagles nest for a few more announcements before the start of the show. Styles announces that the ECW Tag Team Titles were vacated, and that an 8 team tournament will begin next week to find new champions. The first two rounds of the tournament will be held on Uncensored, and the finals will take place at Crossing the Line on MTV2 in 3 weeks. Joey sends it away to the ring announcer as he brings out the competitors for our opening contest.


                              "Roots Bloody Roots", by Sepultura blasts through the sound system of the ECW Arena as Essa Rios leaps out of the entrance full of energy. Rios pumps the crowd up with his energy as he makes his way to the ring. The crowd give him a respectable applause as he flips his way over the ropes into the ring. The fans get louder when "Severed" by Chimaira rattles through the speaker system of the ECW Arena. Psicosis leaps out of the back headbanging his hair around to the beat of the music, and the fans give him a loud pop. Psicosis slowly makes his way to the ring with his eyes focused on Essa Rios the entire way.

                              Rios and Psicosis stare each other down from across the ring as the referee signals for a bell to start the match.


                              Essa Rios vs Psicosis
                              vs


                              Essa Rios and Psicosis paw out at each other for tie ups as they circle each other at a brisk pace in the ring. Essa Rios lunges with a quick, low double leg takedown attempt. Psicosis sprawls out on him by explosively kicking his hips back out of range of Rios' grasp. Rios works his way up to his feet with double underhooks on Psicosis. Rios drives Psicosis back towards the ropes, but Psicosis manages to swim an arm underneath one of his underhooks to break his tight hold around his midsection. Psicosis uses the underhook to pivot Rios into the ropes with a quick switch step pivot. Rios fights to get his other arm under Psicosis' underhook, but Psicosis keeps a tight clinch on him.

                              Psicosis and Essa Rios struggle along the ropes in an over-under clinch. Both men fight aggressively for the superior double underhooks position briefly before suddenly Psicosis rips one of his arms free of the clinch, and smashes Rios in the side of the head with a quick, unexpected elbow strike. Rios is badly stunned.

                              Psicosis pulls Rios back away from the ropes, and attempts to whip him into the ropes across the ring. Essa Rios reverses the whip, but Psicosis reverses it again, pulling Essa Rios back towards him to drive a vicious knee into his midsection.

                              The knee knocks the breath out of Rios' body, and causes him to slouch over forwards. Psicosis props Rios upright, and blasts his chest with a nasty chest chop that reverberates throughout the ECW Arena. Essa Rios falls down to one knee due to the pain. Psicosis pulls Rios up to his feet, and whips him into the ropes. Psicosis leapfrogs over Rios as he quickly sprints back across the ring into the ropes on the opposite side. Psicosis quckly catches Rios with an Arm Drag Takedown. Rios pops back up to his feet, and runs towards Psicosis to catch him off guard, but Psicosis catches him in another fast Arm Drag Takedown that sends him into the canvas.

                              The two men rise up to their feet very quickly. Psicosis attempts a quick Dropkick, but Essa Rios backs away just out of range. Psicosis misses the dropkick, and Rios quickly lands a devastating Soccer Kick to the side of his head as he tries to get back up. The crowd lets out a loud "OH!" as the sound of the kick echoes through the arena. Psicosis falls down into the canvas face first. Rios pulls Psicosis up, and props him up in the corner. Rios tears into Psicosis' chest with several Knife Edge Chops.

                              Essa Rios props Psicosis' body up onto the top turnbuckle, and ascends the ropes for a Superplex. Rios attempts to put Psicosis into the position for the Superplex, but Psicosis fights it off with hard uppercut punches to his face. Essa Rios is stunned on the top rope. Psicosis pushes Rios down into the canvas. Rios slowly gets up to his feet as Psicosis stands up on the top rope. Psicosis leaps off the top, and drills Rios in the face with a Missile Dropkick.

                              Psicosis slowly recovers to his feet, and pulls Rios up. Psicosis attempts to whip Rios into the ropes, but Rios reverses the whip. Psicosis is sent into the ropes. Psicosis runs back towards Rios, who sidesteps him, and kicks his legs out from under him. Psicosis' feet fly out from under him, and he flies into the ropes upside down.

                              Psicosis crashes down into the canvas on the back of his head. Essa Rios slowly pulls him back up to his feet. Rios twists Psicosis' arm around, and attempts his famous Corkscrew Springboard Armdrag. Rios leaps up to the top rope, but Psicosis slips his hand free of his grasp. Psicosis quickly shoves Rios out of the ring down into the steel guard railing down below.

                              The railing crashes back into the knees of the fans on the front row due to the impact. Rios rolls around on the floor clutching his jaw and neck in pain as the fans begin to make noise for the fast paced match. Essa Rios slowly recovers as Psicosis climbs up the turnbuckles to the top rope. Everyone in the Arena rises to their feet. Psicosis dives off the top rope with a Cross Body Press down onto Essa Rios on the outside. The fans scream out "OHHH!" when Rios leaps up just in time to nail Psicosis in the abdomen with a dropkick in mid-air. Psicosis crashes down into the padded floor below in the fetal position, clutching his ribs, fighting to take a breath.

                              The entire ECW Arena breaks out into a massive E! C! DUB! chant as both men remain down on the floor rolling around in pain. Rios staggers up to his feet adjusting his jaw before climbing up the apron, and then up to the top rope. The fans in the arena rattle the roof as Psicosis slowly stands up clutching his ribs in agony, struggling to breath. Psicosis staggers backwards near the entrance isle as Rios stands up on the top turnbuckle in the corner of the ring.

                              Essa Rios leaps off the top with his legendary moonsault, landing down onto Psicosis an amazing 12 feet away from the ring.

                              E! C! DUB! chants rattle the roof, and can be heard throughout the southern parts of Philadelphia.

                              Psicosis and Essa Rios roll around on the ground in pain. Rios slowly rises up to his feet, and rolls Psicosis back into the ring. Essa Rios struggles to get up onto the apron, and chooses to go back up to the top rope to finish it off.

                              Essa Rios leaps off of the top rope with a Shooting Star Press down onto Psicosis, but Psicosis manages to roll out of the way. Rios crashes down into the canvas face first. The crowd gives both men a standing ovation as they both lay down on the canvas beaten and tired. Psicosis pulls himself up to his feet with the ropes. Psicosis slowly pulls Essa Rios up into the position for a Powerbomb. Psicosis lifts Essa Rios up to his shoulders, and folds him in half with a devastating Sitout Powerbomb.

                              Psicosis slowly makes his way to the top rope, and leaps off with his Guillotine Legdrop. Psicosis crashes down onto Rios with his leg down across his throat. Psicosis hooks the leg for the pinfall.

                              1.....

                              2.....

                              3!


                              Psicosis gets the victory with a pinfall, and slowly rises up to his feet clutching his ribs. The referee raises Psicosis' arm into the air as his music blasts through the p.a. system. Psicosis waits for Rios to recover in the ring before offering a handshake out of respect. The two men shake hands, and the crowd gives them a standing ovation as we cut away to commercial break.

                              We return from the commercials with Joey Styles standing in the center of the ring with his microphone. Joey announces that he has an interview set for the man that won a match at One Night Stand over the ECW FTW champion, the WCW/WWF Unified Cruiserweight champion, and the current WCW World Heavyweight champion all in the same match. The crowd swells in anticipation for the man Joey brings out for an interview. "Tequilla Sunrise" begins playing, and the crowd loses it. Juventud steps out of the back wearing street clothes, and his traditional mask.


                              Juvy walks strait to the ring without paying much attention to the crowd as they throw their adulation at him.

                              Joey Styles asks Juvy what's next for him. Juvy responds to Joey by saying that he wants a rematch with Rey Mysterio for his FTW championship title. Juvy says that he's earned a rematch. The crowd pops huge when Metallica's "Sad But True" interrupts Juvy mid-sentence. The music blares through the speakers of the Arena at ridiculous volume as Rey Mysterio makes his way out to the entrance isle.


                              Rey takes his time on his way to the ring as he high fives as many of the fans around the ringside area as he can before entering. Half of the song plays before Rey finally gets into the ring with his FTW belt draped over his shoulder.

                              Rey Mysterio talks about his history with Juvy going all the way back to when the two men trained together as teenagers in Mexico. Rey mentions their incredible series of matches in ECW in 1996 that put them on the map in the wrestling world. Rey says it would be an honor to have a rematch, and that Juvy deserves it more than anybody else in the ECW. Rey tells Juvy that he is proud of him, he respects him, and that he will get a rematch anytime he wants one.

                              Juvy puts the microphone to his lips to set up his rematch, but before he can speak he is interrupted by the original theme song to the Godfather motion picture. The Full Blooded Italians make their way out of the back together as the crowd lynches them with boo's.


                              Vito, Johnny The Bull, Sal E., Chris Chetti, and "The Sicilian Shooter" Guido Maritato make their way out to the ring together as Rey and Juvy stand ready to fight them. Guido gets a microphone fired up mad. Guido tells Rey that he's wrong, and that he is the rightful #1 contender to his FTW title, not Juvy. Guido says he's sick of people in the industry throwing the word "respect" around so loosely. The Sicilian Shooter says that respect is earned, not given, and that he has earned the respect he deserves for what he's done for ECW. Guido says that the FBI doesn't get any respect, and that they are about to start taking it by force.

                              The Full Blooded Italians suddenly attack Rey and Juvy in the ring. Rey and Juvy attempt to fight them off, but they are quickly overwhelmed by the angry Italians. All of a sudden Nova and Kid Kash come sprinting out of the back to even up the odds.


                              Nova and Kid Kash storm the ring, and help Rey and Juvy regain the momentum of the fight. Guido takes Kid Kash to the outside where he nails him in the back with a steel chair. Chris Chetti blindsides Nova from behind with thrust kick to the back of his head. Rey Mysterio and Juventud Guerrera work together to overwhelm the FBI. The two luchadores work together to clean the FBI out of the ring. Guido, Chetti, Vito, Sal, and Johnny The Bull retreat to the entrance isle.

                              Rey and Juvy stand together as Nova and Kash recover. Rey gets a microphone, and challenges the FBI to bring it on. Guido tells Rey and Juvy that the FBI will be in the Tag Team Championship tournament that starts next week. Guido challenges Rey and Juvy to partner together, and enter the tournament as a team if they want to fight the FBI. Rey Mysterio and Juventud Guerrera stare at each other with intense looks on their faces. The crowd cheers as Rey extends his hand out for a handshake. Juvy shakes Rey's hand. The two men agree to partner up to enter the ECW World Tag Team Championship tournament next week in order to get their hands on the FBI.




                              Don't miss the rest of the story.

                              Monday Night Raw & Thursday Night Smackdown.



                              Back from the break, and we have a traditional ECW music video. Tonight's video features highlights of the tag team of New Jack and The Godfather, or Thug Life as they have named themselves. Thug Life has officially been entered into the ECW World Tag Team Championship tournament, which begins with the entire first round next week on Uncensored.


                              Thug Life

                              The Godfather made his ECW debut in May of this year at the Hardcore Heaven pay per view. The pimp brought a ho train to the ECW Arena, but quickly became a target of Quality Control in the weeks that followed. After several vicious attacks from Quality Control, and continued harassment from Philadelphia police, The Godfather dropped his pimp gimmick in favor of a darker, grittier, more angry & violent persona. The Godfather sided with New Jack in an attempt to get revenge on Quality Control for shutting down his business. Quality Control ran The Godfather and New Jack out of ECW at the July Heatwave pay per view in one of the most brutal matches in ECW history. New Jack and The Godfather joined Paul Heyman's ECW Revolution in the WWF, and played an instrumental role in helping Paul Heyman get reinstated as Executive Commissioner of ECW. The Godfather and New Jack spearheaded a bold kidnapping of Vince's daughter Stephanie. Stephanie was held hostage in exchange for Heyman's reinstatement. Heyman returned to the ECW at Anarchy Rulz, and regained his position of Executive Commissioner. Heyman's first act at the helm was to reinstate New Jack and The Godfather in exchange for their help. Thug Life brought Quality Control's reign of terror in ECW to an end last week on Uncensored when The Godfather pinned Stevie Richards in a 6 Man Loser Leaves Town Street Fight. Also at stake in the match was the rules setting's in ECW for the indefinite future. Had Quality Control won the match, Extreme Rules would have been outlawed from the promotion for good.


                              Ice Cube and Dr. Dre's "Natural Born Killaz" plays on as a highlight montage of Thug Life plays with the music. The video starts off with the clip from Living Dangerously in March of 2001. New Jack storms the cage to help Paul Heyman't ECW team defeat Vince Mcmahon's WWF team in the 8 man War Games match. New Jack is shown having his way with Vince Mcmahon in the cage while the fans in the ECW Arena are besides themselves.

The Godfather drops Stevie Richards in the ring with his "Pimp Drop" to erase the memories of Right To Censor, end Quality Control's reign of dominance over the ECW, and guarantee that the classic "Extreme Rules" setting of ECW will remain as the standard for the indefinite future.

                              The video ends with a slow motion clip of New Jack and The Godfather in the ring together holding their arms up making an "X" as the fans in the ECW Arena go crazy for them.



                              We cut away to the live shot of the ECW Arena after the video comes to an end. The crowd begins to boo as Ken Shamrock's "Last Breath" entrance music kicks onto the speaker system. Ken Shamrock steps out from the back, and takes a look around the ECW Arena with a look of disgust on his face.


                              The crowd lets him have it with boo's as he makes his way into the ring with a microphone in his hands. Shamrock stalks the ring slowly as he looks out into the crowd at the fans screaming threats and cuss words at him. Shamrock takes a good look at all of the fans in attendance before speaking into the microphone.

                              Ken Shamrock:


                              Yeah, I'll tell you what........

                              You people really make me fucking sick man.
                              The crowd's boo's grow louder and more intense as Shamrock shakes his head out of disgust at the unruly motley crue of fans assembled in the dirty, smoky ECW Arena.

                              Ken Shamrock:

                              I look around at the types of people here in this building, and it just kind of makes me sick. I see nothing but a bunch of soft, lowlife pieces of shit. Guys that live in some sort of a fantasy life where this pro wrestling shit actually means something.

                              I don't have any respect for any of you. I don't....
                              FUCK! YOU! SHAMROCK! clap~clap, clap~clap~cap, FUCK! YOU! SHAMROCK!, clap~clap, clap~clap~clap, FUCK! YOU! SHAMROCK!
                              Ken Shamrock:

                              Yeah, that's cool man. That's what you do. You pay money to come in here and run your mouth just like all the piece of shit wrestlers you pay to come see every night. That's real cute.

                              You're all a bunch of sorry fucking pussies.

                              Lets take a good look at some of you. Look at this fat motherfucker over here.

                              Huh?

                              Yeah, I'm talking to you boy!

                              I'll come out there and rip that fucking turkey neck off boy, sit the fuck down and shut up!

                              What about you boy? Yeah, you look real tough man, I bet you piss sitting down you 120 pound fucking pussy!

                              That's my thing with you people. That's what gets under my fucking skin. You think y.....
                              SHUT! THE! FUCK! UP!, clap~clap, clap~clap~clap, SHUT! THE! FUCK! UP!, clap~clap, clap~clap~clap, SHUT! THE! FUCK! UP!
                              Ken Shamrock:

                              You people think you know something about wrestling. You don't know shit. This shit you call wrestling is a fucking disgrace.

                              It's a disgrace to real wrestling. Real athletes.

                              You call these motherfuckers you watch athletes?

                              You think you're smart, you don't know shit.

                              There was a time when I really applied myself to this shit you people call "Art". This shit isn't art, this is a fucking circus. I busted my ass, and gave everything I had to this pro wrestling bullshit for 3 years, and all I ever got out of it was a busted up body.

                              The biggest mistake of my entire life, was leaving the sport of MMA to entertain you fucking morons for what was 3 of the worst years of my god damn life. All I ever did was put in the work that was asked of me, and I got passed over for guys that were half of the athletes that I am. Guys that run around in the back chirping their fucking mouths off burying guys, stirring shit up, like a bunch of fucking schoolgirls.

                              That's three years of my life that I want back, and I'm about to take it out of someone's ass.
                              The crowd's violent boo's turn to rowdy cheers when "Welcome To The Jungle" kicks onto the p.a. system. Bam Bam Bigelow steps out with Don Frye as the crowd goes wild. Frye hobbles out behind Bam Bam Bigelow on crutches with his knee in a brace after his injury in Japan at Pride 16.


                              FUCK'EM UP BAM BAM, FUCK'EM UP!, clap~clap, FUCK'EM UP BAM BAM, FUCK'EM UP!, clap~clap, FUCK'EM UP BAM BAM, FUCK'EM UP!
                              Don Frye:


                              Hey tough guy, you kiss your mother with that mouth?

                              Ken you haven't changed one damn bit. You come out here disrespecting pro wrestling, what about the last time I seen you in New York? Huh? You remember that? You moonsaulted yourself through a table Ken, c'mon!

                              We all know your not a very smart man, but what you seem to have people believing here is that you are some sort of a tough guy.

                              Ken, you know it, I know it, you're a coward. You've been running from me for years. They had us set to fight in the UFC 5 years ago in a fight that would have made us both a lot of money, but what did you do?

                              Where did you go?

                              You went to Stamford Connecticut, and you got a job working in the WWF, so don't come out here running your mouth about pro wrestling. You made your money, and you walked away, the same way you did the UFC.

                              You're a quitter Ken. A quitter and a coward. You know it's true.

                              Since you think your such a tough guy, why don't you step up and fight Bam Bam in three weeks at ECW Crossing The Line?

                              I'll tell you what, since you aren't a wrestler anymore, we'll beat you at your own game Ken. Lets make it a sanctioned 3 round shootfight. Lets see how much of a toughguy you really are.
                              Ken Shamrock:

                              I'll fight you anytime you want Frye. I never run away from you a day in my life, I'll fight your ass anytime you want. You name the time and the place, and I'll knock your motherfucking ass out.

                              Bam Bam Bigelow, I'm going to kill you motherfucker! 3 Weeks, Crossing the Line, YOU'RE FINISHED!
                              Ken Shamrock's face is red from anger as Bam Bam Bigelow taunts him from the outside. Bigelow screams at Ken Shamrock that he'll be ready for him at Crossing the Line in 3 weeks right here on MTV2. The main event has been set. The Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission will sanction a 3 round Shootfight between Ken Shamrock and Bam Bam Bigelow!

                              Shamrock stares Frye and Bigelow down with anger in his eyes as we cut away to commercials.





                              The Fight Is On!
                              vs


                              We return from our final commercial break of the evening with Amish Roadkill standing in the ring waiting for his opponent in the upcoming match. AC/DC's "Back in Black" hits the speaker system, and Chris "No Gimmick's Needed" Candido makes his way out of the back with his lovely valet Tammy "Sunny" Sytch. The fans go crazy for the red hot Sunny as she makes her way to the ring with Candido. The pair flash the Triple Threat three fingered hand sign as they enter the ring for the next match.


                              Chris Candido does his classic strut in the ring before striking a pose with Sunny. Sunny exits the ring as the referee signals for the bell.


                              Chris Candido vs Amish Roadkill
                              vs

                              Chris Candido stalls as Roadkill await him to engage in the center of the ring. Candido acts as if he were about to tie up, but backs away, and does his trademark strut across the ring. Roadkill shows a look of frustration in his face as he waits for Candido to stop showboating. Candido feints another tie up, and spins away from Roadkill. Candido struts again, this time right in front of Sunny down on the outside. Candido looks down at Sunny as she applauds his showboating. Amish Roadkill snaps. Roadkill blindsides Candido with a forearm across his back. Candido goes down to one knee as Roadkill strikes down on him with forearm strikes.

                              Roadkill lifts Candido up off the mats, and scoops him up for a Body Slam. Roadkill slams Candido down into the canvas. Chris Candido arches his back up off the mat in pain. Roadkill drops a heavy elbow down into Chris Candido's chest, knocking his breath out of him. Roadkill kicks down at Candido as he tries to catch his breath. Roadkill poses for the crowd for a moment before scooping Candido up onto his shoulders.

                              Amish Roadkill drops Candido with his "Barn Burner", Fireman Carry into ¾ Facelock Bulldog Drop. Candido crashes into the canvas, and goes limp. Roadkill pops the crowd when he climbs up to the second rope in the corner. The crowd cheers as Roadkill balances himself on the second rope, and walks out to the center of the ring. Roadkill leaps off of the second rope with his "Amistaker", Walking the ropes elbow drop down onto Candido.

                              Roadkill hooks Candido's leg for a pinfall, but Candido barely manages to kick out at 2. Roadkill pulls Candido up to his feet, and whips him into the ropes. Roadkill attempts a lariat, but Candido ducks underneath. Candido bounces off of the ropes, and comes running back at Roadkill. Roadkill bends down to attempt a Back Body Drop, but Candido snaps him down into the canvas with a Swinging Neck Breaker. Candido hooks the leg, but Roadkill kicks out at 1. Candido stands up, and grabs Roadkill's ankle. Candido rack's Roadkill's ankle with a well executed Spinning Toehold. Roadkill cries out in pain as Candido twists his ankle in the hold. Candido breaks the hold, and kicks down at Roadkill's ankle. Candido struts across the ring and sticks his arms out in the air before locking Roadkill in the Figure Four Leglock. Roadkill screams out in agony as Candido tortures him in the Figure Four. Roadkill fights his way over to the ropes, and the referee breaks the hold.

                              Chris Candido pulls Roadkill up, and props him up against the ropes. Candido digs into Roadkill's chest with the hardest chest chops of the evening. Each chop echoes through the Arena followed immediately by 1,200 "WHOO"'s. Candido rolls Roadkill down into the canvas with a Snap Mare Takedown. Candido locks Roadkill into the sleeper hold, and chokes the life out of him. Candido gradually grinds away at Roadkill in the sleeper until he falls down into the canvas fighting to breathe. The referee gets up in his face to check for the submission, but Roadkill refuses to quit. Chris Candido props his legs up on the ropes for extra leverage as the ref is occupied. The ref looks up, and Candido quickly drops his legs down off of the ropes. Candido props his legs back up on the ropes as soon as the ref gets back down to check on Roadkill. The ref quickly looks back up, and catches Candido cheating red handed. The ref orders Candido to break the hold. Candido argues with the ref, but is soon forced to give up the hold.

                              Candido pulls Roadkill up, and impresses the crowd when he lifts Roadkill up into the Vertical Suplex position. Candido manages to hold the much bigger Roadkill in the air for several seconds before dropping him down into the canvas with a Delayed Vertical Suplex. The crowd applauds Candido's ability to hold the big man up as long as he did. Chris Candido ascends the ropes in the corner, and leaps off the top with a graceful Flying Headbutt. Candido smashes down into Roadkill's head, knocking him out cold.

                              Chris Candido hooks the leg for a pinfall as Roadkill lays motionless.

                              1....


                              2.....


                              3!



                              "Back in Black" kicks back on as Chris Candido celebrates the victory. Amish Roadkill remains down and out in the ring as Candido and Sunny begin celebrating. All of a sudden the rest of the Triple Threat make their way out of the back. Shane "The Franchise" Douglas, Dean Malenko, Francine, and Dawn Marie make their way out to the ring to congratulate their fellow Triple Threat member's victory. The Triple Threat pose together in the ring flashing the three fingered hand sign.



                              The celebration is cut short however, when suddenly "The High Life" begins playing through the p.a. system of the ECW Arena. The crowd explodes when Eddie Guerrero comes walking out slowly. Guerrero pauses in the isle to take a closer look at the crowd as they throw their adulation towards him. Eddie looks up at the Triple Threat in the ring together with a smirk. Eddie slowly makes his way to the ring, ignoring the arms of the fans extended towards him. Guerrero never takes his eyes off of Dean Malenko as he makes his way into the ring.


                              Chris Candido looks up at Eddie with a confused look as Eddie gives him a round of applause for his efforts in victory. Dean Malenko looks at Eddie with an ice cold stare as Eddie claps for Chris Candido.

                              Eddie gets a microphone from ringside, and says that he was impressed with Chris Candido's performance in the match. Eddie says that the Triple Threat is a real nice little stable. Guerrero sarcastically begins to point out the credentials of the three men that comprise the Triple Threat. He starts off with Chris Candido, briefly discussing his "No Gimmick's Needed" nickname before bringing up his time as "Skip" in WWF. Guerrero says that Candido is the very definition of a "Vanilla Midget", and that he's boring.

                              Eddie tells Dean Malenko that he missed his match at WCW One Night Stand last weekend, but that he heard it was a good one. Eddie says he's proud of Dean for beating up a saggy old man like Flair. Eddie asks Dean if he's proud of his victory of Flair. Eddie offers Dean the microphone to answer his question. Dean takes the microphone, and the crowd cheers.

                              Dean waits for the crowd's cheers to die down, and answers his question with another question. Dean asks Eddie why he walked out on Chris Benoit at WCW One Night Stand. Why did he turn his back on a brother?

                              The smart ass look on Eddie's face turns into a dark, serious look as soon as Malenko mentions Benoit's name. Eddie answers Dean's question by saying that he only returned the favor. Eddie says that all of his "Brothers" turned their backs on him. Eddie tells Malenko that he doesn't have any "Brothers" any more. Eddie gets intense with emotions, and tells Dean that the only brother's he has carry the last name Guerrero.

                              Dean responds by telling Eddie that the if anyone turned their backs on anyone, it was him that turned his back on his brothers with his reckless lifestyle. Dean says that Eddie has reached a point where he doesn't even feel like he knows who he is anymore. Eddie tells Dean that he is correct, and that he doesn't know who he is anymore. Eddie tells Dean that the past is the past, and there's nothing he can do about the mistakes he's made. Guerrero goes on to say that he is a new man. A man that doesn't need anyone but himself.

                              Eddie notices Shane Douglas giving him the evil eye. Guerrero tells Douglas that he should keep his eyes on his woman instead of him, because if he did, he would notice that she was looking at him like she wants him more than anything she's ever wanted. Shane snaps his head over to look at Francine as she turns her head away at the last minute. Douglas' face grows red from jealousy as Guerrero smirks at him.

                              Eddie jokes about Shane's WCW "Revolution" with Dean Malenko, Chris Benoit, and Perry Saturn. Eddie tells Shane that he took his Revolution to the WWF as the Radikals, and left him high and dry on a sinking ship in WCW. Eddie tells Shane that the reason why he didn't invite him to go with them, was because he's a washed up old man that has seen his better days.

                              Shane Douglas snaps. Shane snatches the microphone out of Eddie's hand. Shane tells Eddie that he thinks he's full of shit. Shane says that Eddie hasn't proven himself worthy of a title shot, and that he wants to see where he stands in the ring.

                              Shane Douglas challenges Eddie Guerrero to a match at Crossing The Line to see if he even deserves a shot at Dean Malenko's world title. Eddie Guerrero accepts. It's been set, Eddie Guerrero vs Shane Douglas at Crossing The Line in 3 weeks! Eddie backs out of the ring, and to the back, never taking his eyes off of Dean Malenko. Malenko stares back at Eddie as we cut away to a pre-recorded promo.



                              Uncensored cuts away from the live broadcast to a promo recorded in the boiler room of the ECW Arena. The Sinister Minister stands with the Mastadon Vader standing behind him in his full classic horned headgear. La Parka leans up against a nearby wall repeatedly flashing balls of fire into the air for his amusement. The Sinister Minister says that Tommy Dreamer stands between him and his lovely Beulah Mcgillicutty. The Minister says that Beulah is the perfect woman, and has become a flaming obsession of his. The Minister says wants Beulah so bad that he can taste her burning flesh. The Sinister Minister sends a message to Tommy Dreamer, The Sandman, and Jerry Lynn that he will consume their souls if they stand in his way to achieve the soul he desires the most, the soul of the precious Beulah Mcgillicutty. The Minister says that he will bring a gift to the ECW for Tommy Dreamer in exchange for Beulah, and that his gift will be revealed next week on Uncensored.




                              The camera slowly pans down to show Vampiro sitting on the dirty floor leaned up against a wall with his shirt off. Kimona sits next to him seductively caressing his chest with her hand. Vampiro speaks into the camera while holding a piece of glass from a broken beer bottle. Vampiro slowly drags the glass across his chest, opening up a cut as Kimona slowly smears the blood around his chest and stomach with her finger. Vampiro sends a message to Beulah saying that they have a history together. A bond from the past that will always keep them connected. Blood runs down Vampiro's chest as he says that Beulah is the source of all of his pain. Pain that goes away when he hurts himself. The Sinister Minister laughs as La Parka flashes a ball of fire into the camera ending the promo.



                              We return to the live shot of the Arena where suddenly Ric Flair's "Also Sprach Zarathustra" kicks onto the speaker system. The fans rise to their feet with an even mixture of boo's and cheers. Flair leads the way for his new Four Horseman. Flair, Steve Corino, AJ Styles, CW Anderson, and their manager Arn Anderson make their way to the ring.


                              Ric Flair orders the crowd to show their respect to the new generation Four Horseman. Flair gives praises to each member one by one, saying that Steve Corino has been hand selected by him as the next leader of the Horseman. He goes on to say that Corino deserves to have the torch passed to him, and that he will personally mentor him to be every bit of the legend that he is. Flair goes on to talk about CW Anderson, talking briefly about the proud heritage of the Anderson family that he represents. Flair says that CW busted his ass for ECW for years, and never got the respect from the promotion, or it's fans that he deserves. Flair insults the fans for not knowing a good worker when they see one. Flair finishes by saying that AJ Styles is the future of the sport, and represents the class, dignity, and athleticism that the Four Horseman have always been all about.

                              The crowd boo's Flair when he says that each of the three men will be leaving ECW as soon as their contracts are up. Each man has been selected by the WCW to represent the new generation of talent. Flair says that he will steal away all talent that comes through ECW's doors for WCW, and that eventually WCW will kill ECW once and for all. Flair talks about how the ECW is bad for pro wrestling as the crowd's boo's drown him out.

                              The Nature Boy states that the entire reason he even blessed the people in the crowd with his presence was to send a message to Dean Malenko. Flair says that the spot of the fourth Horseman is still open. Flair says that he is only a mentor to the group, not a member of it anymore. Flair says that he wants Dean Malenko to join the Four Horseman, and to bring the ECW World Championship with him.

                              Steve Corino gets the microphone, and orders the crowd to show more respect to legends like Arn and Flair. The crowd's boo's only grow louder. Corino says that this is the reason why he can't wait to get out of ECW. Corino says that the last 2 years in ECW have been the worst 2 years of his life.

                              Corino talks about how he, Styles, and Anderson have been the best workers in ECW, and how they deserve to move up to the big time in WCW. The crowd cuts Corino off with intense boo's. AJ Styles gets the microphone from Corino, and addresses the crowd.

                              AJ Styles:


                              You know, when Paul Heyman first brought me here earlier this year, he made a lot of big promises.

                              He promised me a chance to show the real wrestling fans my skills. He looked me in the eyes like some kind of broke down used car salesman, and he pleaded with me.

                              He said, "Kid, you got it".

                              "Kid, you're going to be a perfect fit in ECW".

                              "Kid, you're going to be the next Eddie Guerrero."

                              "The next Dean Malenko."

                              "The next Rey Mysterio."

                              He looked me in the eyes like some kind of hustler, and he said "Kid, I'm going to push you to the moon. You're going to be the next Franchise of ECW"

                              Well, I'm looking around, and I don't see any real wrestling fans.

                              I look around, and I see guys like Eddie Guerrero. Guys like Dean Malenko and Rey Mysterio. All of those guys are still here in ECW. They went nowhere.

                              I'm not going to be the next anybody. That's not me.

                              I'm AJ Styles.

                              I'm better than anybody that's ever wrestled in this promotion. I don't fit here in the ECW, and I don't want to be here. I damn sure don't want to be the "Franchise" of a dying promotion. I'm not going to be one of those guys that comes back trying to relive some feud or some rivalry. I'm not going to be here any longer than I have to be.

                              As soon as my contract is up, I'm gone. I'll be moving up to bigger arenas. Bigger paydays. Real world titles. No more of this Philadelphia trailer trash, loud mouth, small time bingo hall garbage for me, I'm better than this.

                              Paul Heyman is a piece of trash. A liar. A thief. A lowlife. As long as I'm here in the ECW, my career is in his hands. He talks about this push I'm supposed to get, but all I've seen is opening card matches.

                              I lasted 50 minutes and 40 seconds in the Anarchy Rulz match, longer than anybody. Has Heyman came to me with a big title match? I haven't heard my name mentioned on this show, not even one time in the past few weeks.

                              I am undefeated in ECW. Nobody has ever beaten me, and that is the way it will stay because I'm done wrestling until my contract is up. I want out of here.
                              AJ Styles is ferociously boo'd out of the Arena until all of a sudden Paul Heyman comes out. The crowd goes crazy when Heyman walks out of the back in his classic black trenchcoat, ECW hat, and headset.


                              Heyman comes out with AJ Styles ECW contract. Heyman tells AJ Styles that he isn't going anywhere, and that he in fact will be wrestling in tonight's main event. Heyman tells AJ that he also has a no compete clause in his contract set that if he leaves ECW he will not be allowed to compete for another promotion for another year. Heyman says that if AJ wants out, he's free to go as soon as his deal is up, and that Heyman will even waive the no compete clause. Heyman says that if AJ refuses to wrestle for the rest of his contract, he will be out of action for another year after that.

                              Ric Flair gets a microphone. Flair tells Paul Heyman that AJ Styles is the finest athlete in the ECW, and that he will beat whoever Heyman puts in front of him in embarrassing fashion. Flair challenges Heyman to bring out the ECW World Champion Dean Malenko to put the title on the line against AJ Styles. Heyman tells Flair that AJ Styles isn't ready for Dean Malenko yet. Paul E. says that AJ Styles still has not really proven himself in ECW, and that the only way to do that is to test him against one of the legends of ECW. Heyman says that it's time for AJ Styles to get a step up in competition, and announces his opponent for tonight's main event.

                              The Homicidal....


                              Suicidal.....


                              Genocidal.....


                              Death defying maniac!

                              Sabu!

                              The crowd goes crazy. Sabu's theme song immediately thumps through the sound system of the Arena as the Horseman clear out of the ring. AJ Styles stands in the center of the ring with a look of nervousness in his eyes as the definitive veteran of ECW makes his way out of the back with his returning manager Bill Alphonso by his side. Sabu stops in the isle to point up to the sky as the fans cheer him on. AJ shows a look of intimidation in his face as the scarred up hardcore icon makes his way into the ring with Alphonso blowing his whistle.

                              Sabu enters the ring with AJ Styles. Paul Heyman speak just before the bell is rung. Heyman reminds Flair that he's in charge of ECW, and that Flair doesn't even have the right to be in the ECW Arena. Paul Heyman emphatically screams at Ric Flair to get the fuck out of his house as the Philadelphia police come out of the back with ECW officials. Ric Flair is escorted from the building. Flair throws a temper tantrum as the Police escort him out the front door of the ECW Arena. Arn Anderson, Steve Corino, and CW Anderson follow Flair out arguing with police and security as the fans all sing out loud...

                              NA~NA~NA~NA, NA~NA~NA~NA, HEY~HEY~HEY, GOOD~BYE!, NA~NA~NA~NA, NA~NA~NA~NA, HEY~HEY~HEY, GOOD~BYE!
                              The young AJ Styles nervous look intensifies when he realizes that he's in this one alone. Sabu begins stalking him in the ring as if he were fresh meat. The bell rings as AJ's cousin Joey reminds us that Sabu was eliminated from the Anarchy Rulz match by AJ via shooting star press through a table.


                              Sabu vs AJ Styles
                              vs


                              Sabu circles around AJ Styles constantly juking and jiving in and out of range as he feints low takedown attempts. Sabu quickly lunges in low for a single leg takedown, but AJ Styles instinctively leaps up to avoid it. Styles uses his quick speed and reflexes to keep his distance from Sabu. Sabu lunges in on AJ Styles with a quick overhand right punch. Sabu stuns AJ Styles when he connects with several quick strikes. Styles is overwhelmed by Sabu's intensity and emotion. Sabu lands several devastating kicks, punches, and forearms down across Styles' back, causing him to stumble down to one knee dazed and confused.

                              Sabu reaches down and pulls out a 9" long nail from his boot. Sabu points the nail up into the air in his trademark pose as AJ Styles tries to shake the dizziness off on his hands and knees. Sabu stands over Styles, and jabs the nail down into his forehead repeatedly. Styles forehead is opened up as Sabu slowly grinds the nail into him, causing the blood to begin to run down his face.

                              Sabu puts the nail back in his boot as AJ Styles rolls around on the canvas clutching his forehead. AJ Styles rises up to his knees with his face covered in blood. Sabu quickly springboards off of the ropes in front of AJ, and bounces back with a Slingshot Sidekick into his face. AJ stumbles back into the canvas clutching his face in pain. Sabu stomps down on him as he rolls around grimacing and grunting in agony.

                              Sabu pulls AJ up to his knees, and opens up his cut with hard punches down into his forehead. The blood begins running profusely down AJ Styles forehead, completely covering his face, and trickling down to his chest.

                              AJ Styles retreats to the outside of the ring trying to wipe the blood out of his eyes. Sabu follows him out, and grabs a chair from one of the fans in the front row. Sabu waits for AJ Styles to turn around and face him, and violently throws the chair into his face. The chair makes a loud sound as it bounces off of AJ's face. Styles collapses down into the mats unconscious. Sabu slowly pulls AJ up to his feet, and slams his bloodied forehead down into the steel gaurdrail. Styles head smashes down into the steel as the blood trickles off of his face all over the place. Sabu clotheslines AJ Styles over the gaurdrail into the crowd, and smashes a chair across his back as he tries to recover to his feet.

                              AJ Styles lays motionless in the crowd as Sabu pulls the guardrailing in closer to the ring. Sabu takes a chair back into the ring with him as AJ Styles begins to slowly recover up to his feet. Sabu sets the chair up in the ring near the ropes. Sabu sprints into the ropes behind him, runs across the ring, springs off of the chair up to the top rope, and dives off into the crowd with a Triple Jump Somersault Plancha Suicida.

                              E! C! DUB!, E! C! DUB!, E! C! DUB!, E! C! DUB!, E! C! DUB!

                              Sabu rolls around screaming out in pain as he clutches his back. AJ Styles lays motionless among the chairs and debri scattered about.

                              Sabu slowly recovers up to his feet, and pulls AJ back over the railing to the ringside area. AJ lays down on the mats as Sabu pulls a table out from under the ring. The fans all rise to their feet and cheer as Sabu sets the table up with one end propped up on the ring apron, and the other propped up on the gaurdrail.

                              Sabu rolls AJ Styles up onto the table, and enters the ring. Sabu sets the chair up near the ropes, and sprints back into the ropes. Sabu runs to springboard off of the chair, but the chair falls over. Sabu slips off of the chair, and falls over.

                              AJ Styles slowly rolls into the ring as Sabu recovers up to his feet. Styles quickly grabs the chair, and throws into Sabu's face. Sabu catches the chair. AJ Styles attempts to kick the chair into Sabu's face with a spinkick, but Sabu quickly ducks underneath it. Sabu smashes the chair over AJ Styles head as soon as he spins back around to face him. The chair folds over Styles head, and remains stuck on him as he falls backwards into the canvas.

                              Styles lays motionless in the ring as Sabu pulls the bent up chair off of his head. Sabu sets the chair up in the center of the ring near Styles' prone body. Sabu runs across the ring, springs off of the ropes, leaps over Styles' body to the chair up to the top rope, and gracefully flies through the air with his Triple Jump Moonsault. Sabu crashes down onto AJ Styles with sickening impact. Sabu hooks Styles leg for a pinfall attempt, but Styles kicks out at the last second.

                              AJ Styles rolls around clutching his ribs as Sabu goes back to the outside to fetch another table. The crowd cheers as Sabu slides a table into the ring, and proceeds to prop it up in the corner.

                              Sabu kicks down on AJ as he begins to recover. Sabu drags Styles over to the nearby table propped up in the corner. Sabu slams Styles head into the table several times until he lays unconscious leaned up against it face first on his knees.

                              Sabu runs from the opposite corner and springboards off of the chair......

                              ***CRASH!***

                              Sabu drives AJ through the table face first with his "Air Sabu", Chairvault Corner Leg Lariat. Sabu rolls around clutching his right knee in agony as AJ lays unconscious in the wreckage of the table.

                              Sabu rolls out of the ring clutching his knee as Bill Alphonso approaches him. Sabu orders Alphonso to get him some tape as he grimaces in pain clutching his knee. Alphonso sprints off to the back as Sabu recovers to his feet. Sabu climbs back up to the apron, and flips himself back into the ring onto AJ Styles with a Catapult Somersault Legdrop.

                              Sabu screams out loud in pain after further damaging his knee with the maneuver. AJ Styles lays motionless in the ring as Sabu rolls around in torturous pain.

                              Sabu pulls AJ to the center of the ring by his boot, and flips him over to his stomach. Sabu points up to the sky in his trademark pose before locking AJ Styles into the Camel Clutch.

                              Sabu pulls back on Styles in the clutch as the blood flows down his forehead, dripping down into the canvas. Styles' entire face is covered in crimson as he fights through the pain. Bill Alphonso comes running out of the back as fast as he can holding a roll of athletic tape. Sabu breaks the Camel Clutch, and crawls his way over to the ropes near Alphonso.

                              AJ Styles begins to recover as Sabu takes the tape from Alphonso, and proceeds to heavily wrap his right knee. Sabu quickly uses the entire roll of tape to wrap his knee, leaving it dangling as he pulls himself up to his feet with the ropes. Sabu limps out to the center of the ring looking down at the massive bloodstains in the canvas. Sabu grabs the chair, and ascends the turnbuckles to attempt his Arabian Facebuster.

                              Sabu leaps from the top, but AJ Styles moves out of the way at the last minute. Sabu crashes down into the canvas with the chair driving into his tailbone. Sabu rolls around in pain as AJ Styles slowly drags himself over to the ropes. Sabu and AJ Styles both slowly recover simultaneously. Sabu limps over to AJ, and tries to whip him into the ropes. Styles reverses the whip, and ducks underneath a Lariat attempt from Sabu. AJ quickly pops Sabu with his Backflip Kick as soon as Sabu turns back around to face him. Sabu crumbles over to the mat.

                              AJ Styles slowly recovers to his feet bleeding profusely from the forehead. Styles pulls Sabu up to his feet into the Vertical Suplex position. Styles lifts Sabu up, and devastates him with a Brainbuster Suplex. Styles drips blood all over Sabu as he tries to cover him for the pinfall, but Sabu manages to prop one of his legs up on the nearby ropes to break the count.

                              Styles pulls himself up slowly, and stomps down on Sabu with punishing kicks. Styles drags Sabu over to the edge of the ring near the table set up previously in the match. Styles pushes Sabu out of the ring onto the table, and climbs up the ropes to the top.

                              AJ Styles slowly makes his way up to the top turnbuckle as the crowd rises up to their feet with swelling cheers. Sabu begins recovering as Styles finally makes it to the top. Sabu shakes the ropes causing Styles to drop down and rack his groin. Styles cries out in pain as Sabu pulls himself up the ropes to the top with Styles. Sabu makes his way up to the second rope, and leaps up with an attempt to Super Rana Styles down through the table.

                              AJ Styles grips the ropes to prevent the Super Rana, causing Sabu to dangle upside down while hanging from his neck with his legs. Styles hooks Sabu's arms with his legs, and drives Sabu down through the table with his "Super Styles Clash", Variation of Face First Piledriver.

                              OH!

                              Chants of Holy Shit! break out through the arena as both Styles and Sabu lay motionless among the wooden shards of the table on the outside of the ring. AJ slowly recovers first, and rolls Sabu into the ring.

                              Styles ascends the turnbuckles in the corner to the top, and leaps off with his "Shooting Style Press", Shooting Star Splash. Styles hammers down into Sabu's unconscious body, and hooks his leg for the pinfall.

                              1.....


                              2.....


                              3!


                              AJ Styles rolls over, and lays in a pool of his own blood next to Sabu's motionless body as the fans all give both men a standing ovation. AJ Styles pulls himself up first, and raises his arms in celebration with a crimson mask upon his face as the program comes to an end.

                              • Re: ECW: The 2001 WWF buyout. (September's Best Thread!)

                                Wrestling Observer Newsletter
                                October 2001

                                Disaster at UFC 33

                                Any momentum gained by the UFC's new management so far in 2001 seemed to hit a roadblock when their September 28th "Victory In Vegas" pay per view ended in calamity. Zuffa LLC purchased the UFC earlier this year, and seemed to have the promotion on the right track after finally securing legal sanctioning from the Nevada and New Jersey state athletic commissions. The new UFC debuted in February, and the promotion's pay per view buyrates were on a steady climb leading up to UFC 33 in September. The fans that did tune in to see UFC 33 watched all of the show's 5 fights finish in some rather uneventful judges decisions. Each of the event's 3 title fights went the full 5 rounds, running a full 25 minutes each. The show's main event was cut off in the middle of the fight due to the pay per view running over on time. The fans that did purchase the event missed the final 2 rounds of the Tito Ortiz vs Vladimir Metyushenko(last minute replacement for Vitor Belfort) fight, where Ortiz grinded his way to his third light heavyweight title defense with a unanimous decision.

                                WWF/ECW Co-Promotion Deal Continues with Pride FC

                                The co promotional deal signed between the WWF and Japanese MMA promotion Pride FC in July of this year will apparently be continuing through the rest of this year on into 2002. The WWF has used Pride FC to promote their ECW brand in Japan in exchange for Pride being promoted to American fans through the ECW. Sources have confirmed that both Pride FC and ECW have benefited tremendously from the co promotion. Rumors swirl that the two brands may co promote a fight in Japan between ECW's Ken Shamrock and Pride FC's Don Frye in 2002. ECW World Champion Dean Malenko defeated Pride FC's Kazushi Sakuraba in a worked match at ECW A Matter Of Respect in August of this year. Pride officials believe the American exposure in ECW was the cause for their spike in buyrates for their last two pay per views.

                                ECW Uncensored Highest Rated Show on MTV2, Future Plans Announced for Shows on MTV.

                                The ECW Uncensored program has become the most watched show on the MTV2 cable channel, and sources have confirmed that 6 supercard events will be aired on MTV in 2002 in the months in between ECW pay per views. The ECW is set to air their first free supercard on MTV2 in three weeks when Crossing The Line 2001 is broadcast live on October 20th. Another free supercard is scheduled to air on MTV2 in December titled As Good As It Gets. ECW officials have confirmed that the promotion will continue to operate on a bi-monthly pay per view schedule in 2002 with free MTV supercards airing in the months between. ECW is locked into a contract for Uncensored to air on MTV2 throughout 2002.

                                PPV Buyrate Report

                                Sources confirm that the recent ECW Anarchy Rulz pay per view buyrates far exceeded the expectations for the show. Anarchy Rulz garnered the highest buyrate in ECW history. WCW's One Night Stand was also a huge success for the WWF, bringing in an even higher buyrate than the widely successful Invasion pay per view in July.

                                ECW Anarchy Rulz(September 2nd, 2001)= 320,000
                                WCW(WWF) One Night Stand(September 23rd, 2001)= 810,000
                                Pride 16: Beasts From The East(September 24th, 2001)= 88,000
                                UFC 33: Victory In Vegas(September 28th, 2001)= 75,000

                                WWF Shuffles Roster, Still No Interest In WCW Big Timers

                                Sources have confirmed that the WWF has officially sent Kronic down to ECW. Danny Doring and Bull Buchanan have both been released by the ECW, and have not currently been brought up to the WWF. Stevie Richards was also released from ECW, but is apparently still under contract with the WWF. Bull Buchanan made an appearance at a recent AAA show in Mexico. Danny Doring has been reported to have made appearances in various indy promotions in the northeast US.

                                Sources also confirm that the WWF has shown zero interest in signing many of the bigger named superstars that are still under contract with Time Warner, including Goldberg, Scot Stiener, Hogan, Sting, Kevin Nash, and Scot Hall.

                                Triple H Set for 2002 Return

                                Triple H has been confirmed to make his return to the WWF in January of 2002. Triple H injured his quad earlier in the year, and was forced to sit out the entire Invasion angle so far due to the injury.
