We open with a video package that starts off with Edge heading into Judgment Day with the World Heavyweight championship suspended firmly around his waist. The video cuts off to all his challengers preparing for the match and then moves on to the face-off before the match starts. Some highlights of the match are shown before the video turns black and white during the ending. Christian’s pinfall is shown and the video goes back to color and Christian’s post-match celebration is aired.
The video ends and Matt Striker, Booker T and Josh Matthews welcome us to Friday Night SmackDown! They promote tonight’s “Michael Cooper settles the issue between Cody Rhodes and Randy Orton” segment and the Sheamus vs Kane match.
**Just Close Your Eyes**
Christian’s music hits and he comes out to a deafening pop in a white t-shirt covered with an ochre jacket and jeans, his newly won World Heavyweight championship gleaming in the lights around his shoulder. He proudly points to his title as he looks high up in the heavens and says thank you. He slaps hands with the Peeps in attendance and gets in the ring. He climbs the turnbuckle and poses with his title and the crowd starts a “You Rock Christian!” chant. He smiles at the emotional crowd and picks up a mic.
Christian: Yeah, it’s a very emotional moment. With tears in my eyes and pride in my heart, for the first time in 17 years, I stand before you the World Heavyweight champion!
*Loud cheers for Captain Charisma*
Christian: And I must tell you, this Sunday was the best day of my life. After all, after struggling for a decade, this kid from Toronto, Canada, finally did it! He finally accomplished what was his dream ever sine he first saw Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant wrestle at WrestleMania 3. Finally, I, Christian, went from Captain Charisma to the Peeps’ champ!!!
*Another loud cheer for the champ*
Christian: And I’ve got a lot of people to thank so please bear with me. First off all, I’d like to thank my parents for believing in me and they kept telling me that I could do it, when deep down inside even they had a doubt if I would. Next, I would like to thank Michael Cooper and Teddy Long for giving me the opportunity to be in the World Heavyweight championship match this Sunday. And, I would like to thank Edge for being with me for most part of my career.
*Boos at the mention of Edge*
Christian: And you know what, this speech would be totally pointless and meaningless if I don’t thank each and everyone of you who have supported me through my ups and downs for the better part of 17 years and never giving up on me though I disappointed you every time I got the opportunity.
*The crowd boos to show their disagreement*
Christian: Without you Peeps, without each and everyone of you chanting “Captain Charisma!” every time I should my face on television, I would have given up on myself and I would have never become what I have, a World Heavyweight champion!
*A “Captain Charisma!” chant echoes in the arena and it brings a tear to Christian’s eye*
Christian: Thank you all. Thank you for being there when it mattered. And for those of you who gave up on me, for those of you who left my side, let me tell you, you made a mistake because this guy right here, now is on top of SmackDown!, he is on top of the WWE and he is on top of the world!
*The crowd can’t stop cheering*
Christian: Now, I must move forward. You see the only pleasure that perhaps comes close to winning your first World title is retaining it successfully and I am going to just that. I am going to wait for Teddy Long to pick an opponent for me to defend my title against and I welcome anyone Teddy Long selects. So without further ado, Teddy Long, please come out here and name my number one contender.
Edge’s music hits and he comes out to one of the loudest boos of the night for interrupting Christian. He comes out in a checkered shirt and jeans and he swiftly walks down the ramp keeping his eyes on the World Heavyweight title around Christian’s shoulder. He gets in the ring and asks for a mic. He gets close to Christian.
Edge: Christian, that’s all fine. You having your moment, good. I respect it. I like it. But that’s just not how I do it. Christian, you have never been a World champion before so probably you don’t know the rules. So let me explain them to you. You see when a person loses his championship, he automatically gets a rematch clause at the next pay-per-view or whenever they want.
*The crowd interrupts Edge with a “You Suck!” chant*
Edge: And me being the former World champion, I’ve got my right to face you whenever I want for the championship. And I am very ready to take that title away from you right here tonight, but I won’t be a jerk and steal your moment away from you. Because I know you’ve worked hard for it. But, I will face you for the championship at The Great American Bash in a one-on-one match.
*The crowd cheers for the announcement*
Edge: I am really very sorry to say this Christian, but your friend will be the one who’ll take your dream, turn it on it’s head and make it into a nightmare for you. Because I’ve said this before and I’m saying it again. I can do just about anything to get that championship and ruining my best friend’s moment comes under “anything”.
*The crowd boos the arrogant Edge*
Edge: You can boo me all you want, the fact of the matter is, I don’t care. I don’t care whether you pester this, this, failure or whether you boo me or you throw insults at me. All I care about is getting back what is rightfully mine, the World Heavyweight championship.
Christian: Whoa-whoa-whoa! Hold it right there brother. Your World Heavyweight championship? I don’t think so brother. Yeah, you might have been the former World champion but I have worked my butt off for 17 years to get here and I am not letting you or anybody else ruin that moment, be it tonight, be it the Great American Bash or be it any other night!
Edge: I’ll tell you what Christian, you’re just another one of them. You work hard to earn your dream, you get it and you still live in that fantasy world that everything from now on will become good. But this is not your fantasy world brother. This is my world. I rule this world and I run it. And what I want happens here and what I want right now, is that World Heavyweight championship to be around my waist!
*Edge throws the mic down and begins to leave but Christian stops him*
Christian: Brother, this is not your world right now. Now, this is my world. Now, I run this thing. Edge, for most part of our career, you were the king and I was the pawn. But things do change, don’t they? Right now, I am the king with the World Heavyweight title firmly around my shoulders and you’re just a punk trying to get his moment!
*The crowd cheers for the edgy statement as Edge and Christian stare down each other*
The crowd cheers the coming of the SmackDown! General Manager Teddy Long and he is his usual cool dude self as he dances his way out to ringside. He stands on the stage with a mic in hand and waits for the music to play out as Edge and Christian look on in intent.
Teddy: First and foremost, Christian, congratulations playa. You’ve earned it!
*Christian nods as a way of saying “thank you”*
Teddy: Second, your match with Edge for the World Heavyweight championship at The Great American Bash is now official!
Teddy: And lastly, tonight, our World Heavyweight champion Christian will be in action against the high-flying, sensational luchador, the Master of the 619, Rey Mysterio!!!
*The crowd explodes at this announcement as Teddy Long walks off and we go to a commercial*
Back from the break and The Hart Dynasty comes out to a decent reaction. Kidd and Smith slap hands with the people before getting in the ring. They climb the turnbuckles and move their hands around their waste signaling that they will win the WWE Tag Team championship, however, they will have to beat The Broskis tonight to do go to The Great American Bash and compete for the titles.
Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins come out to a huge pop after going 7 and 0 this past Monday on RAW. The tag team titles are firmly suspended around their waists as they head down to the ring with the fans cheering them on. They acknowledge the crowd and then get into the ring. They stare down at their opponents before climbing the turnbuckles and posing with the titles which brings out more cheers and chants from the lively crowd here tonight.
Slater: The Usos failed at Judgment Day. The I.R.B failed this past Monday on RAW. And here tonight, The Hart Dynasty were your eighth prey. Congratulations, you guys are 8 and 0.
*The crowd boos at the amount of sarcasm in that statement*
Slater: But guys, no, Broskis, your eight and 0 undefeated streak comes to an abrupt end this Monday. Yes, at the next RAW, the South African sensation and the One Man Rock Band face the tag team divisions golden boys, the Hoeskis in a tag team match. And guess what? The stipulation remains the same as tonight. If we win, we face the two of you for the titles at The Great American Bash.
*Slater and Gabriel pose in the ring with the crowd booing them as we go to a commercial*
**Too Many Lies**
Sheamus comes out after the break and the crowd boos him. He looks disgruntled after Sunday’s unsuccessful campaign. He heads straight to the ring in a green “Laoch” t-shirt, the signature locket dangling down his neck. He gets in the ring and pumps his heart up and the crowd boos him. He asks for a mic.
Sheamus: When I was announced for tonight, the only reactions that were heard all over the world were boos.
*The crowd cheers for that fact*
Sheamus: When I entered the WWE’s main office in Stamford, Connecticut the officials started talking among themselves. Now I do not want to be a jerk and listen to what other people have to say but I overheard this conversation. They were talking about how Teddy Long made a bad decision by allowing me to appear on SmackDown! after a loss at Judgment Day.
*More cheers at the mention of the loss*
Sheamus: I ignored those comments and started walking down the hall when two crew members were talking about how I did not EARN my place in the WWE. They were talking about how I do not deserve to be here in the WWE following Sunday’s loss. Now that’s when things started to boil over my head. Because I wasn’t the only one who lost at Judgment Day. Edge lost his World Heavyweight championship, too.
*The crowd starts a “We Want Christian!” chant at the mention of the world title*
Sheamus: And another person who lost at Judgment Day was The Undertaker. But no one cares to “talk” ill about him. No one dares to call him names. Because he is the so-called “Phenom”. He is the Deadman. And people still believe, in this day and age, that he might drive them to the graveyard and bury them alive. What a joke!
*The boos start settling on Sheamus*
Sheamus: People still believe that The Undertaker is capable of doing inhuman things just because he comes out in his stupid 80’s attire and does “magical” things and wears dark make-up? Well then, I too am going to start doing these things because this is what gives you respect in this business, doesn’t it?
*More boos for Sheamus*
Sheamus: No, don’t boo me. Because it is true. No matter what The Undertaker does, no matter what lines he crosses, he’ll still be a legend and have the utmost amount of respect from his co-workers and even his employers. And when somebody else tries to step up to him, you people, the management, all of you surround him and start barking like dogs and force the man who wants to be one to retreat.
*The crowd can’t take all the insults anymore*
Sheamus: But this man right here, he’s not going to back off. He is not going to be pushed around by The Undertaker and his bunch of disgusting, dark scoundrels. This man is Sheamus and he is going to do what he does best, he is going to step up to the challenge and beat The Undertaker again and again and again until he gets what is finally his. The recognition of being superior to The Undertaker and some decent amount of respect!
*The crowd starts a “You Suck!” chant*
Sheamus: I will beat The Undertaker until he finally does not go away and never return and you know what, I’ll even go to depths no man has ever gone just to do so. You see I am tired of The Undertaker being treated as the legendary, immortal hero, the walking dead. I am tired of all of this and I want to see it come to an end. And because I know there will be no else willing to do so, I will get my hands dirty whenever The Undertaker is ready. I will show you people just how The Undertaker looks when he goes from the walking dead to the Deadman walking out with his head held low after being humiliated!
*The crowd starts a “Undertaker!” chant*
Sheamus: Cheer him all you want, you people know that it is coming to an end sooner than later. I say why wait until Undertaker comes out and challenges me. I’ll challenge him. Deadman, how about this. You and me, one-on-one, at The Great American Bash?
*The crowd cheers for the possible match*
Sheamus: Okay, I know you are not here tonight. You’re hiding somewhere in your grave saving your face after being unsuccessful at Judgment Day. So I’m giving you one week. As you hide in your grave Undertaker, just make sure you think about this and let me just tell you, I’ll be waiting. But just for one week. Next week, right here on SmackDown!, I want an answer, and it better be a yes.
*The boos start coming again for Sheamus’s arrogance*
Sheamus: Until then, I’ll be content facing your disgraceful brother, the devil’s favorite freak, a joke of a monster, Kane. WHERE IS HE?
*Sheamus drops the mic and laughs for taunting Kane as we go to a commercial*
Back from the break and Kane is in the ring. He raises his arms in the air and drops them down at which pyros explode from the turnbuckles.
4 Weeks Away!!
**Smoke and Mirrors**
Back from the break and Cody Rhodes music hits and he comes out to loud boos in his signature red hooded jacket. He walks towards the ring ignoring the boos that accompany him to the arena. He moves slowly and steadily, pushing the cameramen out of his face and finally gets to the ring. He takes a mic kept near the turnbuckles and takes off his hood revealing his foggy mask that protects he recently reconstructed visage.
Cody: What Randy Orton did at Judgment Day was complete unacceptable. Take a look.
*Cody points to the tron where a video airs showing the final moments of the Cody-Orton match*
Cody: See right there. Randy Orton took off my mask and endangered my recently reconstructed face which, mind you, he ruptured. He added another atrocity to his pile of sins and one day he has to pay for all of this. But at Judgment Day, somebody else was going to pay for having my mood worsen. Teddy Long, the worst general manager in the history of SmackDown!.
*Boos for insulting the GM*
Cody: And I don’t care if I am fined for this but Teddy Long is a son of a bitch. This past Sunday, after Orton got a cheap win I went to Teddy Long’s office to mend things and he told me that I was seeing things? He told me that nothing of that sort had happened and that I needed to rest after a fair loss? Are you serious Teddy Long? No, you’re out of your mind.
*The boos keep coming*
Cody: And I was about to send Teddy Long to the hospital but Michael Cooper saved his fate. And that’s the reason I am here tonight. Michael Cooper told me that he was going to fix things here tonight but he still hasn’t been spotted in the building. So Mike, if you don’t want to come out here, I may as well go to the back and take out two of your employees, namely Theodore Long and Randall Orton.
*Cody receives the loudest boos for that*
**It’s A Long Way To The Top**
Michael Cooper’s music hits and he comes out to a loud pop in a suit. He slaps hands with the people as Cody looks on in frustration. Mike plays with the crowd a bit more before he heads down to the ring. He gets into the ring and picks up the other mic kept near the turnbuckles. He then turns to Cody and the crowd boos. Mike motions for the crowd to settle down and the crowd does. Mike fixes his attention back to Cody.
Mike: Hey Cody. I respect your feelings but the first thing you need to know about me is I don’t break my promises. I don’t disappoint my employees. And I am a strong believer of the feeling “trust”. And I hope someday, you’ll be too.
*A little cheer goes up for Mike and he smiles*
Mike: Anyways, I am here to do what I wanted to do. Cody, I am here to give you your justice and I will do just that. So without wasting any further time, let’s get down to business! But before I give my judgment, before I fix things my way, I want you to tell me, what does “justice” mean to you in this case?
Cody: I’ve said it before Mike, Randy Orton committed a sin at Judgment Day. Not a sin, another sin. First, he cost me my beautiful features and the World Heavyweight championship but after that he cost me a shot at revenge and now, my desire to finish off the so-called Viper has increased. So I request you to give me a one-on-one match against Randy Orton.
*Cheers for the possible match*
Mike: Alright, alright. So you want a match against Randy Orton and nothing else?
Cody: I’ll take care of him in the match.
Mike: Well then Cody, let me tell you…
Randy Orton interrupts Michael Cooper and he comes out to one of the loudest pops of the night in an “Apex Predator” t-shirt and tights. He keeps his gaze fixed on the CEO of the WWE Michael Cooper and his arch-nemesis Cody Rhodes. He walks methodically down to the ring. He climbs the steps and gets into the ring and picks up a mic fallen near another corner. He gets closer to the two and puts the mic to his lips.
Orton: I decided that I would hear your judgment in person, face-to-face with Cody Rhodes.
Mike: You may as well but just stay separate.
*Orton smirks at Rhodes which angers the latter even more*
Mike: Before I was interrupted, I was going to say Cody, Randy Orton did use your mask to distract you and pick up the win. But you are as guilty as Randy Orton is because you yourself used the mask once in the match.
*Cheers for acknowledging Cody’s mistake*
Mike: So then, what I am going to do is what I feel is right for you Cody, for Mr. Orton, for me, for Teddy Long, for the board of directors and for these people. I am going to give you what you want and I am going to give what Randy Orton wants. And what you’ll both want is a match against each-other and I am going to give it to you at The Great American Bash!
*The cheers explode through the roof as both men look content with the announcement*
Mike: So gentlemen, good luck.
Cody: Thank you Michael. Now I finally get a chance to prove that I was the better man, in Legacy and even right now.
**I Come From Money**
The boos have quickly worsened into more boos as Ted DiBiase walks out to ringside. He taunts the crowd as he walks down the ramp with the three others looking at him intently from the ring. Ted gets in the ring and goes over to the other side. He asks Tony Chimel for a mic and gets one. He then turns his attention to the others.
Ted: Hello Mister Michael Cooper. I guess this is the first time we’re meeting after you held the conference after you bought the company, right?
*Mike nods his head*
Ted: Just to remind you, my name is Ted DiBiase and I am the son of one of the most respected and rich Hall of Famers in WWE history, Ted DiBiase Senior. You see my father has given to this industry more than what they’re fathers have given combined. I even say the only things they’re fathers have given to the WWE are two good-for-nothing braggers.
*Boos for Ted*
Ted: And what do I get for being the most talented superstar on the WWE roster right now? I have to hear these two talk about who is the better man and who was the better man in Legacy. Let me tell you, I was also a part of Legacy. I was an integral part of Legacy. I gave Randy Orton one of his most famous victories in the WWE and I gave Cody Rhodes his first championship. And don’t tell me that I am going to get nothing for doing so because I deserve it.
*More boos for the cocky young man*
Ted: Michael Cooper, if you really do what’s best for your talent, then you’ve got to put me in this match because I have a right to claim that I was the best man in Legacy and I should be given a chance to prove it, right?
*Ted moves closer to Mike as Mike thinks about the suggestion*
Mike: Alright. You know what, you’re right. I take special care not to disappoint my talent and as you pointed out, you’re the son of one of the most respected legends in the WWE or in the whole industry for that matter. So what I am going to do, is I am going to scrap the one-on-one match. Instead, I’ll replace it with Randy Orton versus Cody Rhodes versus Ted DiBiase in a triple threat match.
*The crowd cheers at the announcement*
Mike: Uh, good luck once again.
*Mike drops the mic and exits the ring. He stops at the start of the ramp and looks back in the ring where Ted gets closer to Orton*
Ted: That just ruined your chances of winning, didn’t it, Viper?
*Ted drops the mic and laughs about it. He is about to leave but Orton pulls him back in the ring…*
…and hits him with the RKO!! The crowd pops for that. Michael Cooper too lets out a smile. Orton turns his attention to Cody Rhodes who searches for a route to escape. He is about to do so but Orton grabs him by the tights, turns him around and nails him with an RKO as well!! He slides out of the ring and gets in Mike’s face who stares back without being afraid. Orton then walks up the ramp with a wide grin on his face as Mike looks at the carnage left in the ring. Orton exits ringside and Mike too walks back and we go to a commercial.

Back from the break and Ezekiel Jackson and Chavo Guerrero are already in the ring for the triple threat match.
Sin Cara’s music hits and he comes out to a decent pop in his signature blue trench-coat with a golden tinge as Chavo and Zeke look on. He takes off his coat on the stage and then points at the ring before running towards it. He leaps and hops into the ring with the pyros exploding on the stage at the landing. Cara climbs the turnbuckle and poses at which the crowd cheers.
**Main Yash Hun**
Jinder Mahal’s music hits and he comes out to loud boos with Great Khali after the break. The U.S title hangs firmly around his shoulders as he walks down the ramp in a suit with Khali firmly by his side. He gets in the ring and poses with the title and the crowd boos. Khali picks Mahal up on his shoulders and Mahal lifts his championship in the air for everyone to see. Khali then starts a “Jinder Mahal!” chant and the crowd responds with more boos. Mahal takes a mic.
Mahal: This past Sunday at Judgment Day, I beat Dolph Ziggler, Sin Cara and you’re hero Daniel Bryan to retain MY United States championship. For those of you who didn’t see it, take a look.
*A video airs showing the highlights of Mahal’s title defense on Sunday*
Mahal: With that victory, I solidify my place as one of the best United States champions ever. With that victory, I have proven to you people and to my fellow wrestlers that I am indeed the king of the United States of America. I am the man who will lead you misguided Americans to the path of morality and success.
*The crowd boos the Indian import*
Mahal: And you people can boo me now because yes, I am different from all of you. I am different from your heroes. I am different from Daniel Bryan. I do not spend nights thinking about achieving success like you fat cowards. Instead, I come out here every night and prove that I am better than all of you. I prove every night that I am better than all of you combined together.
*A “You Suck!” chant echoes in the arena*
Mahal: No, I don’t suck. You people suck. You people suck every promise that your so-called “heroes” make. But the truth is, I know it and deep down inside all of you know it, your heroes aren’t capable of doing what I can. They cannot make this country a better place to live in. I can. I can improve the qualities that you’ve been brought upon and I can imbibe values of justice, truthfulness and success in all you stupid, brain-washed Americans.
*A “U.S.A!” chant breaks out*
Mahal: Your dear U.S.A would have come to an abrupt end and still can if you don’t follow what I preach and what I preach is believing that you are better than any other human on the planet. U.S.A doesn’t need your “heroes”, it needs the hero sent from India to save the world’s largest economy from becoming a country full of hypocrites. It needs a king. A true king who can finish off the job of making U.S.A a better place.
*The “You Suck!” chants continue to sound*
Mahal: And that king, ladies and gentlemen, stands before you. Me, Jinder…
Dolph Ziggler’s music interrupts Mahal and Dolph comes out with his hot girlfriend Vickie Guerrero. Both are apparently pissed off at something and they head straight for the ring, their eyes locked on Mahal and Khali. They get in the ring and Dolph picks up a mic left in the ring. He gets in Mahal’s face, but Mahal quickly goes back a few steps.
Dolph: Jinder Mahal, enough of your claims of making this country a better place to live in. You see, the first thing that you need to do, is you need to imbibe some values of class, respect and honor into you and your bodyguard Khali.
*Mahal and Khali look puzzled as Dolph fumes on*
Dolph: The only reason you could walk out of Judgment Day with that title, is because of what Khali did. He took my attention off the match when he did something no American would do. He did something only you classless and uneducated Indians could do. Take a look.
*A video airs showing Khali kissing Vickie during the U.S title match on Sunday*
Dolph: See, that is what I am talking about.
*Mahal turns to Khali and slaps him in the face. He then turns to Dolph and smiles*
Mahal: Dolph, Khali’s fixed. Now, it’s time to fix your tongue. You know, you may have done it unknowingly but you did. You called me and my fellow Indians uneducated. Let me give you a reality check buddy. It’s us Indians that have migrated to the States and given you your material needs.
*The crowd boos Mahal again*
Mahal: Let me give you a small example Dolphie. You see, I, Jinder Mahal, an Indian, a proud one, migrated to the United States and became the best professional wrestler in a company that belongs to U.S.A. I defeated Daniel Bryan to become the United States champion and this past Sunday, I beat Bryan, you and Sin Cara to retain this championship. I stand before you the current and best U.S champion and all you are, is a fat woman’s Man Friday.
*The crowd “oohs” for that*
Mahal: And you know what Dolphie, that’s the best thing you ever did.
Dolph: Whoa, whoa. Mahal, I am the most respected guy behind the scenes. I am the most respected WWE employee and I am far more talented and charismatic than you or this pervert, Khali. I have in abundance what you and your bodyguard lack tremendously, I have the skills to become the next big thing in the WWE and I will!
*The crowd stars booing Dolph too*
Mahal: Hahahaha. Dolphie, you actually believe that. I thought you were more smarter than that. Dolphie, the thing is, you were the most talented superstar on the WWE roster but that is before I stepped foot in this company. Right now, nobody, and certainly not you, comes close to matching my talent or my determination.
Dolph: That’s enough Mahal. I’ve heard enough. You want to see who is the better man? Let’s do it. You and me, right now, for the U.S championship!
*The crowd gets pumped up*
Mahal: Dolphie, I don’t want to embarrass you in front of your “girlfriend”. But I’m sure you want revenge for what Khali did to her on Sunday, don’t you? I’ll give you the chance. You and Khali, right now.
Dolph: You’re on!
*Dolph drops the mic and takes off his t-shirt as we go to a commercial. The match is next*
Kane walks down the hall thrashing tables and monitors. He pushes many of the crew members to the floor and kicks walls and does everything he has for the past few weeks. He picks up a monitor placed on a table and slams it into the wall. He picks up another table and throws it to the floor. He grabs a cameraman and throws him onto a table sending plates of food crashing to the floor. Kane then tightens the towel wrapped around his head and walks out of the door all this while asking “WHERE IS HE?”.
Back from the break and a video of what just transpired is shown. Following that, we cut to a “RAW Recall” video wherein they show the opening of Monday Night RAW, followed by the triple threat elimination match that determined the No.1 contender for the WWE championship. It shows the highlights of the match including Triple H’s involvement, Jericho’s elimination and the final moments. The video ends with Cena and Morrison staring at the WWE championship held in the air by the latter.
**Don’t Mess With**
Victoria’s music hits and she comes out to loud boos with her partner for tonight, the Glamazon, Beth Pheonix. Both divas walk down to the ring not shifting their focus to the vocal fans at ringside. Instead, they keep moving and finally get to the ring with the crowd continuing with their jeering. Victoria climbs the turnbuckle and poses which brings her more boos as Beth poses standing on the mat. They discuss strategy as they wait for their opponents to walk out.
**Time To Rock and Roll**
The WWE Women’s champion Trish Stratus comes out to huge cheers with the third-generation diva Natalya by her side. The two women ooze hotness as they walk towards their opponents. Trish, in a black robe covering her ring gear has the Women’s championship belt firmly around her waist and Natalya wears the usual pink and black. They get inside the ring and climb the turnbuckles and pose. Trish lifts her Women’s championship for everyone to see and the WWE Universe starts a “Trish Stratus!” chant.
Teddy Long’s music hits and he comes out to utter silence as a result of what happened. He has a microphone in hand.
Teddy: Kharma, we, the management, have had enough of you causing a havoc in the WWE because it is dangerous and injurious to our divas. So, we have decided to give you what you want. And from what we have seen, our guess is you want Trish Stratus one-on-one for the Women’s championship, don’t you?
*Kharma stares at the GM*
Teddy: Well if you do, then this Monday on RAW, you will be taking on four divas of the WWE. Namely, Beth Pheonix, Victoria, Natalya and Eve Torres in a gauntlet match. And if you win, you will get Trish Stratus one-on-one for the Women’s championship, at the Great American Bash.
*The crowd cheers for this announcement as Teddy leaves and we go to a commercial*
Back from the break and the ex-World Heavyweight champion Edge is seated near the announce table with our commentators.
Rey Mysterio comes out to a huge pop. He points towards one section of the crowd and then to another with pyros going off on both occasions. He slaps hands with the people as he heads for the ring and also touches head to head with the kids wearing his masks. He takes off his vest and gives it to a young kid who is more than happy to receive it. Rey gets in the ring and climbs the turnbuckles and poses which brings out a “619!” chant from the kiddies.
**Just Close Your Eyes**
The World Heavyweight champion walks out to cheers. He poses on the stage with the World Heavyweight championship, which is suspended around his waist, shining in the bright lights. He high-fives his fans as he walks down towards his opponent. He gets in the ring and climbs the turnbuckle and searches for his Peeps in the audience. He takes off his World title and lifts it high above his head at which the crowd starts a “Let’s Go Christian!” chant.
**End of show**
Pretty good exchange between Christian and Edge. I must say GI, your promo skills have been improving a whole lot so I must commend you on that. I was feeling the whole promo up until that whole this is my world stuff, kinda confused me there. But overall, a really good promo between the two. LOL @ Teddy Long saying about three sentences and leaving. So I know you know that Edge/Christian has been done to death and I hope that you put your own spin on it.
Really glad that you're giving the the tag team division some air time. The Broskis have been on a roll lately so another good win for them. Ehh Heath Slater on the mic. I'd much rather hear that accent of Justin Gabriel's. Nonetheless, should be a good matchup when these two teams do battle in the ring.
I like Sheamus better as a heel than a face so I'm happy he's a heel in your thread. Wasn't really feeling the promo though. Maybe some words in there that I don't see Sheamus saying. Or maybe I just can't stop reading whatever Sheamus says in an Irish accent. But anyway, 'Taker vs. Sheamus should be good. This could be like the Batista/'Taker series, which wasn't bad. Also, hmm Kane hesitating, show his human side? I bet you're bringing back the mask as well. Not really a big fan of Kane so I don't care if he has the mask or not or even if he was released.
Having a Rhodes/Orton feud should be nice for your thread. I just didn't really dig your promos by both guys for some reason. Much like your earlier promos, it started out good but didn't end right for reason, I don't know what it is. And having Dibiase inject himself into the match so easily wasn't really a good thing for me. I know Cooper says that he likes to keep his talent happy but he's THE BOSS. They should listen to him.
Hmm, so Ziggler is slowly turning face? I won't say I like it, but I don't dislike it either. I think Mahal can succeed but in a different way. This whole “foreign-hating-USA” gimmick has been done many times. Could be a good midcard battle as Ziggler always makes the matches he's in interesting. And Kane going ballistic backstage? Where is HE? Paul Bearer?
Kharma against Trish SHOULD happen so I fully expect Kharma to survive the gauntlet and have a good feud with Trish. Those four divas that were in the match are no pushovers though, interesting to see what you do with them. I actually like the divas division so if they can actually wrestle, I'd watch it.
Whooooo! I really like Christian as your World Title holder, definitely a Peepster. Anyway, I just wish that the idea of Edge/Christian hasn't been done to death which makes me not that excited for this feud. But still, maybe you bring out something different so I challenge you on that.
Overall, pretty alright show. Again, I think that you would benefit from writing recap shows. It's not all that bad anyway. It still gets the point across and are still interesting reads. Just think about it man. Cheers!
"Life doesn't give us purpose, we give life purpose."
Okay Mr. Icon lets get in to Smackdown!
Start of with the new World Champ, Christian. I'm a Peep so I'm happy to see him champ. A pretty regular face/first world title promo but I felt like it was real so hats off to you. Edge interrupts and invokes his rematch which is good because it gives you the maximum amount of time to build the feud. As Jam said I think the promo went a little astray by the end but overall a pretty good start.
Tag Team action is next. I like the fact that Hawkins and Ryder have this nice streak going. Was a decent match as Broskis build themselves further. Slater and Gabriel seem to be their next challengers. I'm going to say that Slater and Gabriel will cheat to win on RAW and get their match at G.A.B
Sheamus promo I couldn't get into 100%. What he was saying made sense but I just couldn't picture Sheamus saying some of that stuff. None the less Taker vs Sheamus should be a good feud. I'm hoping for a long feud maybe a match at Summerslam and then a feud stretching out to Survivor Series. (Maybe HIAC?)
Sheamus goes over Kane in his match, making himself look strong and after the match Kane is disgruntled. I'm with JAM on the mask!
I actually enjoyed the Rhodes/Cooper/Orton promo. I thought Cody was projected well and you seem to have Orton pretty down pat. Injecting DiBiase into the feud is interesting. I'll see how this develops.
The Triple Threat match was a bit of a filler for me, nothing wrong with it. Those 3 guys got some exposure.
The Mahal promo was pretty good. The Anti-USA character has been done before but I'm interested to see where you go with it. I like that you've got Mahal as US champ as it gathers him more heat. You've built him up as a credible champion so hopefully he can develop a big feud with Ziggler.
Ziggler looks strong by defeating Great Khali so I'm looking forward to these 2 going off.
Divas is always meh for me so don't take that personally. Stratus and Kharma are two great Divas so I think you've got some good stuff going there.
Mainevent time and it's the World Champ up against Rey Mysterio. Great match from these 2. As it should be Christian gets the victory to build his championship credentials. Edge's appearance only furthers the feud so I'm expecting Christian to get him back next week.
Overall, I enjoyed the show I thought it was a good read. You've got some really nice feuds brewing so I'm looking forward to what you can come up with.
Good stuff and good Luck
I > U
Opening- Christians win was really nice this time around. I liked it last time, but he only got the opportunity because Edge retired. This time around he earned it. It was done right. I like the feud between E and C, and I can feel them being actual friends. Edge is doing a great job at playing heel, but not completely trashing his buddy. I think the rematch will be great.
Tag Match- Good booking here. If the Hart Dynasty win, they get a title match. The Broskis going 8-0 was expected. Slater and Gabriel after the match was short, sweet, and to the point.
Sheamus Promo- I couldn’t really get into it. But, I did see the point. It opened up the opportunity for a ‘Taker feud.
Kane vs. Sheamus- Good match here. Love the back and forth. Sheamus winning was the right thing to do, but where does Kane go from here?
Ted, Randy, Cody- I liked it. I felt a new side of Cody. Randy was placed where he needed to be. I would have been fine without Ted, but adding him does not hurt. This should be an interesting build to the 3 way match.
Jackson vs. Chovo vs. Cara- I expected Sin Cara to pick up a win, and was a bit surprised. Jackson is obviously the bigger man, and the in-ring action focused on that.
After the Triple Threat- I do not like Mahal. I do not like Mahal having the US title. Also, did you call Vickie hot? I can’t say I really liked this segment.
Khali vs. Ziggler- This was okay. I think it showed a lot of the abilities of Ziggler. The match made him look good.
Looks like Kane has somewhere to go.
Divas- This is the cream of the crop here. These 4 divas could carry the division. Adding Kharma really intrigued me. The set up to Raw’s Diva’s match is nice. I want to see, or read, this!
Main Event- Best solid match of the night, and should be. Good action from both faces. The end of the show was a fair ending.
OVERALL- Good show. A few less than great segments. I just can’t rap my head around Mahal. Edge and Christian are carrying the show right now, and rightly so. Good job bro.
John Morrison (c) vs John Cena

Live from Phillips Arena, Atlanta, Georgia
Jerry “The King” Lawler, Michael Cole and Jim Ross welcome us to Monday Night RAW live from Atlanta, the city that hosted WrestleMania XXVII. They put over tonight’s “John Morrison face-to-face with John Cena” segment and the 4-on-1 Divas gauntlet match. They also notify that the WWE Women’s champion Trish Stratus is indeed here tonight after successfully recovering from a concussion suffered this past week on SmackDown!.
**Break The Walls**
Chris Jericho’s music hits and he comes out to loud boos in a suit. The boos grow louder as WWE Hall of Famer and Chris Jericho’s new friend, Bret “The Hitman” Hart comes out and joins Jericho. The two Canadians walk down to the ring looking more focused than ever. The get inside the ring and Jericho asks for a mic. Bret takes off his glares and puts them in his jacket pocket as Jericho adjusts his tie and begins to speak.
Jericho: Last week on RAW…
*The fans interrupt him with boos*
Jericho: Shut up you parasites!!
*More boos as Jericho gets frustrated*
Jericho: I said shut the hell up!!
*The crowd boos at first, but then quitens after a few moments*
Jericho: That’s better. As I was saying, last week on RAW, Bret Hart was out here explaining as to why he attacked Triple H at Judgment Day. And trust me when I tell you, it was nothing but the truth. Bret Hart, like a man, truthfully explained his actions and apologized to that manner less excuse of a human being.
*The crowd boos again at the insult directed to HHH*
Jericho: And what does Triple H do? He comes out here and attacks a senior citizen from another country for apologizing towards his behavior, which no doubt, wasn’t wrong!! And after he did that, after brutally assaulting Bret, he cost me a chance to compete for the WWE championship at the Great American Bash. Take a look.
*A video airs on the tron showing Hunter attacking Jericho in the middle of the No.1 contender’s match last week*
Jericho: Now that was something completely uncalled for. I did nothing but beat Triple H at Judgment Day and he couldn’t take it. He couldn’t accept the fact that a man he considers lesser, a man who has won everything he deserves beat a parasite who has won nothing he deserves! Triple H couldn’t digest the fact that a hard-working individual like Chris Jericho beat a leech like himself.
*A “You Suck!” chant begins in the arena*
Jericho: And then Triple H decides that he will cost me the WWE championship because he knows he’ll get away with it because he is the husband of the General Manager of RAW. But I won’t let that happen. Because I beat Triple H fairly enough at Judgment Day and he has no right to do what he did. I won’t let Triple H get away. I want that leech to come out here, fall on his knees, and apologize, to not only me but also to Bret and all the Canadians for what he did. Come on out here, Hunter!
*Jericho, Bret and the fans wait impatiently for HHH to arrive*
Triple H’s music hits and the crowd goes wild for The Game. He is out in a “Cerebral Assassin” t-shirt and jeans with his hair tied in a pony. He walks down to the ring with his eyes locked on his two nemesis and they stare him down in return. He gets into the ring and eyes down both men before picking up a mic placed near a turnbuckle. The fans start a “Triple H!” chant before Hunter can speak.
Hunter: You want an apology from me? Well I’ve got bad news for you. And the bad news is, you’re not going to get it! But there is worse news. You see, what I did to you two last week was only a hint of what’s going to come for what you two did at Judgment Day. You know it, I know it, the whole world knows it.
*Loud cheers for HHH*
Hunter: Bret, you may have escaped from a beating last week, but that doesn’t end my plans there. It just postpones it. You see, I never wanted you to interfere in the match. And you had no business doing that. But instead, you took that sledgehammer and hit me in between the eyes, giving this “hypocrite” a victory. Now, that’s where I got pissed off!
*Bret Hart looks uneasy as Hunter moves further towards him*
Hunter: I thought of you as a friend. A mentor. A man who was there for me when I needed you. I thought of you as someone who could tell this punk what he was in his face and try, try to improve him. But what did you do instead? You sneaked up from behind and you Bret are responsible for us being forced to hear this jerk bragging about nothing!
*Boos for Hart*
Hunter: And then you come out here, blabber out a written-by-some-creative fake apology and decide to move on. That’s where you got on my nerves. Bret, if you could be man enough to cost me a match, I think you should be man enough to accept it without your excuses you call explanation, and look me in the eyes, face-to-face!
*A “Triple H!” chant goes up in the arena*
Hunter: And as for you babyface, you just don’t fail to piss me off every time you show your face on WWE programming. Chris, you are the biggest parasite, the biggest coward, the biggest hypocrite in the WWE and its Universe because you need to hide behind a 60-year old senior citizen to get away with your sins!
*Loud cheers for that one*
Hunter: And I’m telling you one last time Canadians, I don’t care if the WWE’s relationship with Canadian wrestlers is spoiled, all I care about is beating your asses all over this arena, any arena and every arena we go to, starting from tonight. I challenge any one of you, no, I challenge both of you to a match, tonight!
*The crowd cheers for the possible match as Jericho and Bret discuss stuff*
Hunter: Come on guys. Show them that you are not parasites. Show them that you can hang out with a virtually mad individual. Show them that you are better than me. Come on. Come on.
**All Grown Up**
Stephanie McMahon comes out to mixed reactions with a mic in hand and she stands on the ramp, looked on by the superstars in the ring pretty anxiously.
Stephanie: Hello Atlanta. Hello people. You know it’s not at all puzzling to see you battle verbally after what happened last week. So, I was prepared for this. Not only that, but I did know somebody of you was going to make a challenge. So, I left a spot open for the match to fit in. The main-event spot, that is. Tonight, it will be Triple H taking on Chris Jericho and Bret Hart in a 2-on-1 Handicap match!
*The crowd cheers for the announcement as Hunter looks pleased and we go to a commercial*
Back from the break and Heath Slater and Justin Gabriel are already in the ring with their music playing in the background. They are warming up for their high-stakes tag-team match against the leaders of the tag division, the WWE Tag Team champions.
Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins come out to a huge pop from the crowd with the titles firmly around their waists. They high-five each other on the stage and then do the fist pumps with the crowd following suit. They walk down the ring slapping hands with the people in Atlanta before hitting the ring. Their opponents back off as they climb the turnbuckles and pose with the titles held high in the air. The crowd starts a “Let’s Go Broskis!” chant.
Rosa: Ladies and gentlemen, I am your new interviewer, Rosa Roucka. And my first guest, one of my idols, the WWE Women’s champion, Trish Stratus.
*The crowd cheers huge at the sight of Trish*
Rosa: First off all Trish, how are you feeling after the concussion on SmackDown!?
Trish: I’m still pretty sore. But that wasn’t going to keep from coming here tonight, and it didn’t. I am right here, live on RAW and I am ready for some action, but Stephanie McMahon has advised me against it.
*The crowd boos at the statement*
Rosa: So, are you ready for the big 4-on-1 gauntlet match tonight?
Trish: You bet.
Rosa: Do you think Kharma can outlast four opponents and get a chance to face you for the title at The Great American Bash?
Trish: You know what Rosa, I hate to admit it but I am going to, Kharma is one hell of a competitor. She is everything you need to be to become a Women’s champion. And I am pretty sure that she will win the gauntlet match tonight. But that’s when I come in. You see, to beat me, Kharma needs more than that size and I doubt she has anything beyond that.
*Cheers for the champion*
Trish: Even if Kharma gets a chance to face me at The Great American Bash, once again, as always, she is going to fail. Kharma can not defeat me and it is a proven fact. She lost at Backlash, she lost at Judgment Day and The Great American Bash is going to be no different. After The Bash, I’ll still be the Women’s champion, and Kharma will still be a bitch!
*Trish walks off to cheers as we go to a commercial*
**Say It To My Face**
Back from the break and Alex Riley comes out to a decent reaction from the crowd. He slaps hands with the people who stretch out their arms and walks towards the ring with a small grin on his face. He gets into the ring and climbs the turnbuckle and poses. He then takes off his jacket and warms up, waiting for his opponent to make his entrance.
**Cult Of Personality**
CM Punk’s music hits and he comes out to huge mixed reactions, with the die-hard Punk fans cheering him on but Punk is not his usually smirking self. He has a straight face and doesn’t do any of his antics but walks straight for the ring, his eyes locked on Riley. Punk climbs the turnbuckles and holds up his signature “X” sign and gets in the ring. He takes off his t-shirt and throws it into the crowd and then adjusts his knee pads.
Punk: Ladies and gentlemen, CM Punk gives yet another five-star performance from his side.
*The Punk fans cheer*
Punk: I know some of you appreciate it, some of you like it, some of you don’t and some of you are plain jealous. And that’s okay with me because I am straightedge and I am better than all of you.
*A few boos can be heard in the arena*
Punk: That’s a proven fact so you don’t need to boo me. But the problem I have is that every week, I am here, giving you all a reason to watch Monday Night RAW, giving you a Match-Of-The-Year contender week after week after week, giving you a five-star performance under any circumstances and there is somebody in the back who doesn’t care to acknowledge it!
*The fans listen on waiting to hear who Punk is aiming at*
Punk: And that somebody is not any person. That somebody is the RAW General Manager Stephanie McMahon. You see, ever since she has been appointed the RAW GM, I have never had a fair chance to compete for the WWE championship. And last week, last week, with yet another top-notch performance, I was going to seal the deal against the odds, only for this to happen.
*Punk points to the tron where a video airs showing the Punk- Morrison confrontation mid-match last week*
Punk: You see it right there. I had that match won. I had John Cena beaten. And hadn’t it been for the champ himself, I was going to the Great American Bash! Instead, what I am doing here? Beating classless jobbers. My talent is being wasted against these worms when I should be competing for the WWE championship.
*The Punk fans seem to agree*
Punk: And this is all Stephanie McMahon’s fault. Instead of coming out here and placing me in the WWE championship match, she puts me against the “oh-so-mighty” Alex Riley and bears with John Cena and John Morrison fighting it out for the title. Are you serious!!
*Punk is now very angry, as it is evident from his expressions*
Punk: Stephanie McMahon, I am giving you a direct offer. You come out here, and you give me what I want. And I’ll give you what you want in return. You know what I want? I want to compete for the title at the Bash. Do that, and I’ll give you your five-star main-event match because I can! So come on out here and we’ll have a deal!
*Punk gets up from his position and waits for Stephanie McMahon to come out*
**All Grown Up**
Stephanie McMahon comes out and Punk’s expression changes from angry to happy. Stephanie stands on the stage with a mic in hand waiting for the anticipating crowd to settle down. She looks straight at Punk with a smile on her face and begins to speak.
Stephanie: CM Punk, first off all, congratulations on your big victory tonight. And yeah, I admit that you give us a “five-star performance” every week. But you see the problem is, nobody and I mean NOBODY gets free shots here. Last week, I gave you chance. Last week you came close. But last week you failed. You failed to cash-in on an opportunity and that’s not my fault.
*Punk’s mood begins to change again*
Stephanie: But, but, I also believe in giving every employee of mine a second chance. And as far as I can remember, you ARE one of my employees. So, I am going to give you another shot to compete for the title. And that is, if you can beat your opponent next week right here on RAW, you will be placed in the WWE championship match at The Great American Bash. But remember, it will be your last chance.
*Punk smiles again and picks his fallen mic back up*
Punk: Alright, so who is my opponent?
Stephanie: Your opponent is a mystery until next week. So keep speculating, and good luck.
*Stephanie drops the mic and leaves as we go to a commercial*
Tickets on sale now and selling fast!!
**On Your Knees**
Jack Swagger comes out to a decent reaction filled with boos. He confidently walks out to ringside with a smirk on his face and swagger in his walk. He walks down the aisle and stops at the end of it to do his signature push-ups and the crowd gets a little more heated. Swagger gets into the ring and does his pre-match lap and then climbs the turnbuckles and poses.
**Born To Win**
Evan Bourne comes out to a humungous pop from the WWE Universe and he comes out slapping hands with the people stretching out their hands. He runs down the ramp and gets in the ring and climbs the turnbuckles. He poses and then holds up a victory sign and the crowd continues to cheer him on. The kids start a “Air Bourne!” chant. Bourne gets off the turnbuckles and warms up for the match.
Drew McIntyre comes out to loud boos with his hair tied back in a pony. He walks down the ramp keeping his eyes locked on his opponents in the ring as we switch to a video on the tron. The video shows Drew winning last week’s battle royal to earn the No.1 contendership to the Intercontinental title and then shows Del Rio’s post match attack and challenge. The video ends and Drew is already in the ring, look confident.
Back from the break and The Miz comes out to loud boos in a black suit and a white shirt inside. He struts in his signature style to the ring looking at the fans who boo him profusely. He certainly looks pissed off as he gets into the ring and tucks one of his hand in his pocket. He asks for a mic with the other and gets it from Justin Roberts. He begins to speak but the crowd starts a “You Suck!” chant. Miz waits for the chants to die down a little and then puts the mic to his lips.
Miz: Really? Really? Really? Atlanta, Georgia? Really?
*The crowd reply with a “really!”*
Miz: I suck? What, are you out of your minds? After what happened last week, it’s a shame for you people to throw insults at me because what I have done is what no one lesser could do. I took a right hand from The Big Show and within a week, I am right here on Monday Night RAW, performing, giving my services for you people and you boo me? Really?
*Another “really!” from the crowd*
Miz: Hmm. But I feel I shouldn’t be wasting time on jerks like you. It’s time I moved on to what I came here for, in extreme circumstances. You see, I moved out of my hospital bed, out of my home and came all the way here just for one reason. And the reason is, redemption. You see Big Show had no right and certainly no reason to punch me in the face. And when somebody does something that I don’t like, they have to pay for it.
*The crowd boos the arrogance of The Miz*
Miz: You see I am the most improved, most talented, most valuable and most must-see superstar in the history of the WWE and me being out for one week, means heavy loss for the company. And if it wasn’t for my work ethic, if it wasn’t for my dedication, WWE would have been in a loss because of one man and one man only, The Big Show. And the blame, as always, would have been on me.
*The crowd cheers the possibility*
Miz: But thankfully, that didn’t happen. But that is going to keep me from doing what I am here for. As you can see, as you may know, I am not going to wrestle tonight as a result of the injuries sustained last week…
*Miz is interrupted by “Stop the Excuses!* chant*
Miz: …these are not excuses. This is the truth! I suffered multiple injuries to my jaw and my head and it is all the Big Show’s fault! And since I can’t take Big Show out in the way I know the best, I am going to use a second method. I am going to sue Big Show for what he did to me and I am also going to demand that he pay my hospital bills.
*The booing continues*
**I’ve Had Enough**
Wade Barrett comes out and the boos get even louder as Barrett walks down the ramp in a t-shirt reading “Barrett: The Future” keeping himself focused on the suited superstar in the ring. He gets in the ring and picks up a mic fallen near the turnbuckles. He turns around to Miz and walks a step closer to him.
Barrett: Miz, you’re right. The Big Show had no reason to attack you and furthermore, he shows no signs of regret for it.
*Barrett nods his head in apparent “frustration”*
Barrett: But you see, it is very difficult for an individual, someone in his forties especially, to change his habits, his way of life. And this has been Big Show’s way of life ever since he made his debut in the WWE. He used his size advantage to out-strength his opponents and he forever has been bullying people.
*The crowd boos in disagreement*
Barrett: The Big Show has always used his large frame to unnecessarily attack his colleagues and get away with it, without much fine. And he continues to do so for years and years to come. And when I attacked him in the groin a few weeks ago, I was trying to do what many other have. I was trying to put an end to the bully and his bullying. I was trying to get rid of the fear surrounding the Big Show. And alas, I was unsuccessful.
*The crowd starts a “You Suck!” chant*
Barrett: I was unsuccessful because of the Big Show’s “giant” reputation. I was thrown around and pushed to the wall by the management just for standing up to that freak. And when that happened, I thought I lost the war. That was until last week when The Miz showed up and did not hesitate to face the Big Show and that is when I knew I wasn’t alone. That was when I realized that there was another one supporting this agitation. And that man is The Miz.
*The crowd boos louder*
Barrett: Miz, you and me together could do, can do and will do what we couldn’t do alone. We can take out Big Show, beat him, finish me and show to the world that Big Show’s unfair bullying won’t be tolerated any more. We can beat Big Show and end his reign as the World’s Largest Bully! What say?
*Barrett stretches out his arm and after a little hesitation, The Miz shakes it at which the boos grow louder*
**Crank It Up**
The mood in the arena changes drastically as Big Show walks out through the curtains to ringside. The crowd cheers the giant as he fives them with a big smile on his face. He walks down to his nemesis and gets in the ring. He smiles cheesily at them and then grabs a mic. He waits for the “Knock ‘Em Out!” chants to die down and then begins to speak.
Show: You know, I could do what they are asking me to in just the blink of an eye.
*Show looks at his fist and the crowd cheers*
Show: But, I don’t want to do that. I don’t want to send both of you to the hospital because let’s face the facts. You two ARE the future of the company. But that doesn’t mean that you’re not going to face the consequences for what you have done. Gentlemen, you have angered a giant bully.
*Another loud cheer from the crowd*
Show: Now let me just tell you both, when a giant bully gets angry, especially me, I don’t let go of the sinners. I hold them, I squash them, I beat them and I finish them until they can no longer move, let alone walk. And the same is going to happen to the two of you.
Barrett: See? That is what I am talking about. You are indeed a big fat bully. But let me tell you something Big Show, we are not going to be afraid by you or your threats. We are here to take a stand against you and we are going to stand our ground no matter what you say, what you intend to do or what you do. So you can take your big words and go back to your favorite eatery.
Show: Sshh. Hold on a second “sir”. I know you are taking this so-called “stand” of yours. But you see, I am in no mood to step back. Now, the only thing I can do with you two, is knock you out!
*The crowd gets pumped up!*
Shows: But not without hurting your talent. You are two talented little weasels and I want to test your talent in a match. And not any match, a handicap match at the Great American Bash!!!
*More cheers from the crowd*
*All Grown Up**
Stephanie McMahon comes out for the third time in the night with a mic in hand. She stands on the stage again and speaks.
Stephanie: Big Show, I’m sorry to tell you this, but you and Barrett have been banned from competing in a match for four weeks.
*The crowd boos as Big Show’s face drops*
Stephanie: But, you are not banned from competing against The Miz. So at the Great American Bash, it will be you versus The Miz one-on-one!
*The crowd starts cheering as Miz starts to revolt against the decision*
Stephanie: But under one condition. And that condition will be named by The Miz. And Miz, you may as well keep in mind, you can only name your condition IF Big Show’s opponents manage to beat him tonight. That’s right, Big Show will be in action tonight against Mason Ryan and Skip Sheffield and he will be teaming up with this man.
The crowd goes wild as the rapping superstar R-Truth walks out to ringside and Big Show looks happy with the GM’s choice for his tag team partner.
Stephanie: Oh and by the way, the match is next.
*Truth walks down the ramp as we go to a commercial*
3 weeks away!!
