    BRAND EXTENSION
    (presented by NotoriousMEAT & cmuk316)

    As ordered by WWF CEO Linda McMahon and the Board of Directors, in response to the growing friction between WWF co-owners Vince McMahon and Ric Flair, the World Wrestling Federation will from here on out be representing its business through two separate brands, RAW and SmackDown. After personal conflicts between WWF Co-Owner Ric Flair and WWF Superstar The Undertaker, the Board found it necessary to return full ownership of the World Wrestling Federation to Mr. McMahon. Now after reviewing the situation and more importantly after speaking with Mr. Flair who has guaranteed he will refrain from anymore in ring action with active WWF Superstars, the Board of Directors find it only fair to give each owner full reign of control of their respective brands.

    Therefor, Ric Flair will be in control of the RAW brand while Mr. McMahon runs things on SmackDown. The WWF roster will be split between the brands after the first ever WWE Draft, the results of which can be seen below. This brand extension takes full effect on Monday April 1st when WWF RAW emanates from Albany, New York. In order to avoid any future conflict, the Board has also decided to separate the WWF Undisputed Championship giving each brand it's own World Champion. Further details of this change are expected to be announced this Monday on RAW.

    The only time the RAW and SmackDown brands are expected to interact are at the monthly WWF Pay-Per-Views. This is when the WWF as a whole will truly shine and each brand is expected to give their best, and prove superiority. The Pay-Per-View schedule for the next year can also be found below.



    After a draft held at WWE Headquarters where Mr. McMahon and Mr. Flair alternated in selecting superstars, the rosters for the RAW and SmackDown brands are as follows..

    WWF RAW
    April 1st, 2002
    Albany, New York

    The 8 o'clock hour strikes. The new WWF programming signature plays, signaling the show has begun. The first face we see is that of WWF co-owner Ric Flair. The "Nature Boy" appears in his office, sitting at a desk with his nameplate front and center.

    Ric Flair: "Ladies and gentleman my name.. is Ric Flair. Tonight I'm not "co"-owner of the World Wrestling Federation. Tonight, just like so many other nights over the last 30 years, I'm THE man. Monday nights from here on out are McMahon free! A new era in the WWF is upon on us, and it starts tonight. THIS! ... is RAW."

    Flair flashes a smile before we suddenly rip into the brand new RAW entrance video..

    [youtube]7P5GaCVK5nA[/youtube]​

    At the video's conclusion we quickly go inside the arena which is packed to the rafters with rowdy and excited WWF fans! We're greeted by the familiar voices of Jim Ross and Jerry "The King" Lawler. JR thanks everyone for inviting the WWF into their homes and welcomes them to RAW live from Albany, New York. JR informs the viewing audience that he has no list of announced segments or confirmed matches for tonights show. It appears Ric Flair is keeping things very close to the vest tonight, which the King insists will make for an exciting night. No more time is wasted talking as the contestants for the night's opening match make their way to the ring.

    First, the unmistakeable theme music of the Hardy Boyz! Matt Hardy makes his way out onto the stage flanked by his girlfriend Lita! Unfortuantely Jeff Hardy was drafted to the SmackDown brand, meaning the end of Team eXtreme and one of the WWF's most popular tag teams. But Matt Hardy's face shows that of a focused man, fully aware of the opportunities in front of him to become a true singles star! Next through the curtain is Matt's opponent for the evening and it happens to be the towering Canadian known as Test!

    The crowd is estactic as Matt celebrates his victory with Lita holding his arm up high. Ross praises Hardy for his fighting spirit while the ornery Lawler implies Matt won't amount to anything without his brother. As the victor and his girl exit the ring we go backstage to the parking lot area as a blacked out SUV pulls into the arena's restricted parking. Just as Ross questions who could possibly be inside, Scott Hall steps out of the vehicle which brings a hiss out of the crowd. With the car door left open, X-Pac slides out of the car behind Hall while Kevin Nash is seen getting out of the passenger seat. The trio all give a nod to each out and X-Pac lets out an annoying chuckle as the group leave the SUV behind them and head inside the arena. The nWo has arrived! With this we go to our first commercial break.

    A WrestleMania X8 recap promoting the upcoming VHS and DVD release of the huge event runs right before we come back from break. When we do, we're inside the locker room where Lita is this hyped from the victory. Matt Hardy however has his eyes glued to a nearby TV set that's obviously playing RAW.

    Hardy: "That. I want that."

    Lita: "What?"

    Hardy: "Hogan. Rock. Undertaker. Flair. Jericho. Triple H. All those faces I just saw. WrestleMania. I want that. I want my face, to be WrestleMania. Not just with Jeff. Not with ladders or chairs or tables. I'm ready for it."

    Lita: "You're gonna get there Matt! I know it. This is your chance on RAW."


    Lita embraces her boyfriend who is now smiling. Matt nods in agreement as we switch over and see William Regal walking down a hallway. He's in his gear and proudly wears the European Champions around his waist. The door he approaches is clearly labeled "RIC FLAIR" but before Regal can knock, Flair steps out of his office, almost surprised to see Regal in front of him.

    Flair: "Regal what are you doin here? You.."

    Regal: "Mr. Flair I know I know, I just had to see you."

    Flair: "Okay, but.."

    Regal: "Now I know this is your first night captaining the ship, and I know that power and the responsibility of total control can be well, overwhelming."

    Flair: "Yeah?"

    Regal: "And well, I don't know if you remember but I am a former WWF Commissioner and the leadership role is a position I'm very comfortable with. So if you need any advice or help at all, don't be afraid to ask."

    Flair: "That's mighty kind of you Mr. Regal, but you do have a match literally right now. So how bout you focus on that, and I tell ya what. When the job is just getting to be too much for me, I'll come find ya. Maybe even let you run the whole show one night."

    Regal: "Absolutely sir! Thank you."


    William shakes Flair's hand then scurries away for his match. Flair chuckles and shakes his head before walking out of frame. Lawler proclaims that Regal is a leader he could follow and suggests that adding the former commissioner to his cabinet would be the smartest thing Flair ever did. A moment later Regal's music begins to play and the European Champion trots out onto the stage. He starts down the ramp when "WOOOOO!" rips through the speakers. Ric Flair's music interupts Regal's entrance and the confused Englishman stops dead in his tracks and turns to see his new boss come out with mic in hand. With a huge smile on his face Flair waives Regal over to him.

    Flair: "Hold up hold up, come back."

    The music comes to a stop as Regal and his forced smile approach Flair.

    Flair: "Ya know William, it's really quite funny that you came and found me a minute ago, because I was actually out here on my way to find YOU! Now I know your European Championship isn't on the line, but I'm happy you brought the title out here with you tonight, because I'm gonna need you to hand it to me.. right now."

    This gets a rise out of the crowd, they're not too sure whats going on and obviously neither does Regal who demands to know why.

    Flair: "Now now, as valiantly as you and other great superstars have fought for that European Championship, I really feel that it's run it's course here in the World Wrestling Federation. I admit I was a little agitated to see the Intercontinental Championship drafted to SmackDown, but then I was struck with a grand idea. RAW is MY show. Not only can I create a new legacy, I can also continue one."

    William Regal looks distraught as Flair reaches out for the European Champion. Regal doesn't let it go, and Flair all but yanks it away. Folding the the title's straps, Flair now holds the championship under his arm.

    Flair: "As of now the European Championship, is retired. Beginning next week, I bring exclusive to RAW.. the United States Championship! Now nothing personal to Europe or it's amazing fans.. but the United States Heavyweight Championship has been a staple in wrestling almost as long as Ric Flair baby. Tonight I'm taking every available superstar who once held the prestigeous United States Championship, and they're gonna compete. Three 1-on-1 matches, which each winner meeting next week in a Triple Threat match to determine the brand new WWF United States Champion!"

    The fans approve of the announcement with roar of cheers. William Regal on the other hand is completely flabbergasted.

    Flair: "Now Mr. Regal, I was just informed that my new power can be rather overwhelming, so to make sure everything is fair, even though you have never been United States Champion, I'm going to allow you as incumbent European Champion to compete tonight in one of these matches for a shot at the title next week. Fair?"

    Regal is obvioulsy irritated but has no other choice but to accept Flair's proposal.

    Flair: "Excellent. Well your match is still next so, as you were."

    William Regal's music again plays as Flair turns and exits the stage. Still not totally sure what just happened, Regal makes his way down to the ring for his qualifying match. "You think you know me.." the signature opening for one of WWF's most popular young stars, Edge! The canadian superstar emerges from the smoked, covered in his largel leather coat and hidden behind his sunglasses. With a huge smile on his face, Edge heads to the ring for an international battle to challenge for the U.S. title.

    As Edge celebrates his victory we go to commercial. When we come back from break JR and The King recap Flair's big announcement and replay Edge's victory over Regal. Lawler cannot believe the injustice Regal just suffered and questions Flair ability to handle the pressure of running RAW. Backstage Flair is back in his office conversing with his friend and confidant Arn Anderson. They appear to be happy with the announcement of the United States Championship's return and like how things have gone so far on RAW. BAM! The sound of Flair's door busting open disrupts the conversation and soon after, The Undertaker steps into view. Flair and Anderson both come to their feet. Three weeks removed from their bloody WrestleMania fight, the boiling hatred between Undertaker and Flair is still very real.

    Flair: "What do you want Taker?"

    The Deadman removes his sunglasses and places them on his head, tucked behind his bandana. He glares at Arn Anderson before his gaze moves back to Flair.

    Undertaker: "You finally have a chance to get me out of your life for good. You just had to let me be drafted to SmackDown. But instead.. you keep me here."

    Flair: "What's your point."

    Undertaker: "I'll tell you my point. I figure you drafted me for one of two reasons. No matter how many times I punched you in the head, you must still realize the legend I've built over the last 12 years on whether it's RAW or SmackDown.. the WWF is still my yard. Or. You wanted to keep me close so you could try and make me miserable."


    Ric and Arn remain quiet. Flair's stare never wavers.

    Undertaker: "I'm here to find out. I know the Undisputed Championship has been split. Are you gonna show me the respect I've earned and make me the new WWF Champion or RAW Champion or whatever.. because anything other than that.. well I'd take that as a personal insult."

    There's silence. Tensions are high. Arn is now looking at Flair who is still deadlocked with The Undertaker.

    Flair: "I guess you'll have to wait and see."

    The Undertaker lets out a snort and lifts his head. Moving his neck his eyes soon shoot back down to Flair. It seems he's doing all he can to not strike his new boss.

    Flair: "But if you want something to help you pass the time until then, I've got a hell of a main event for ya. Tonight.. you face your brother, Kane!"

    It's impossible to tell if The Undertaker is upset with the match or not, his intenet expression remains the same. The fans cheer for the match announcement as Taker glances back at Arn one last time before grunting and leaving the office.

    We go back out into the arena, and the historic tune of Mr. Perfect begins to play. He receives a mixed reaction from the audience. Even though the perfect one has been rather smug since his return to the WWF back at the Royal Rumble, he is still beloved by many fans who enjoy seeing such an iconic star from their youth gracing the ring today. It's announced the following match is another U.S. Championship Qualifying match. After Mr. Perfect comes Raven! The hardcore standout was at one point United States Champion in WCW. The interesting clash of a wrestling purist and an extreme legend is only overshadowed by the question of who's gonna join Edge in next week's title bout.

    JR seems less than impressed with Raven's tactics in the match. He and Lawler recap the finishing moments of the contest as Raven doesnt waste anytime leaving. As Mr. Perfect slowly comes to, the live audience shows some respect for a hard fought battle. Unfortunately though, it's Raven moving on to the United States Championship match. As Mr. Perfect comes to his feet with his hand pressed to his head, the screen fades to black for a moment.

    A return promo for the Rabid Wolverine! Chris Benoit has been out of action since June of 2001 after suffering a broken neck. When he returns, he'll be exclusive to RAW! This vignette sends up to commercial.

    When we return we again recap Edge's victory earlier in the night over William Regal, and look back at Raven's win moments ago against Mr. Perfect. With that we now see Kurt Angle knocking on Ric Flair's door. Arn Anderson opens, and in the background Ric Flair can be heard saying it's okay for Angle to enter. Kurt and Flair exchange pleasantries before Angle gets right to it.

    Angle: "The real reason I'm here Ric... Mr. Flair, is I know tonight you're going to announce your new Champion. I just wanted to make sure you knew I.."

    Flair: "Kurt look, I appreciate you coming in here. I have a pretty good idea what you're gonna say and let me make something perfectly clear. I'm not here to GIVE anyone, anything."


    Kurt's expression shows his disappointment.

    Flair: "Now you have a match tonight, and it's a big opprotunity. You're competing for a chance to become United States Champion next week on RAW!"

    Angle nods, but still doesn't seem satisfied. He grabs hold of the gold medal around his neck, almost as reassurance.

    Angle: "I know. And I intend to win that match, and the match after that. I'll be United States Champion on top of being an American Hero. But Mr. Flair, as great as it is being an American Hero.. nothing beats, being WORLD Champion. You know that. So, when you have the chance if you could.."

    Flair starts nodding.

    Flair: "Oh I know Kurt, I know. But you may wanna go do some final warm-ups before your match later, don'tcha think?"

    Angle finally takes the hint and turns his head, pausing for a moment before exiting the office. Flair and Arn converse quietly for a moment before the sound of bombs falling from the sky tears across the arena. Turns out it's the pyro for the Dudley Boyz! And after it crashes into the stage, Bubba Ray and D-Von come rolling onto the stage. Flanked by the Dutchess of Dudleyville Stacy Keibler, the dynamic duo waste no time in getting to the ring. Their opponents for the evening are none other than the WWF Tag Team Champions, Billy & Chuck. Accompanied by their stylist Rico, the champs find their way to the ring after an uncomfortable amount of time admiring each other, and the match gets underway.

    The Dudleyz celebrate their victory as the Tag Team Champions lick their wounds outside the ring. We go backstage where Johnathan Coachman stands with mic in hand.

    Coachman: "Please welcome my guest, former European Champion, William Regal."

    The camera pans out to show Regal standing next to Coach, visibly upset.

    Coachman: "Mr. Regal if you don't mind, could you tell us how you're feeling after everthing that's transpired here tonight between you being stripped of the European Champion, and losing your opportunity to beocome United States Champion?"

    Silence. Frustration is written all over Regal's face. His bottom lip even begins to quiver as his breaths become louder and deeper. It looks like he's gonna explode!

    Regal: "...no. I cannot."

    With that Regal turns and walks away, leaving Coachman a bit perplexed. The fans though are eating up Regal's misery. JR and King have different feelings on the matter and again hype next week's championship bout. We're also reminded of tonights main event.

    [​IMG]

    The Undertaker and Kane go 1-on-1 later tonight! We go to commercial.


    The triumphant entrance theme of the only Olypmic Gold Medalist in WWF history brings us back from break as Kurt Angle makes his way through the curtain. Even with gold medals around his neck, Kurt's made it clear he won't be happy until he adds more gold around his waist. Though the pompous olympioan receives many jeers from the crowd, Angle pays them no mind. He's here tonight to prove himself. He wants to be THE champion. "Yo! It's me! It's me! It's D-D-P!" Diamond Dallas Page makes his way to the ring with a fair reception from the crowd. Even though he's all smiles, the former WCW United States Champion is fully aware of the opportunity in front of him tonight.

    The fans begin to boo, and you can tell Kurt is eating it up. He insists the referee raises his arm and declares him the winner again after replays of his victory are shown over the titantron. "I'm the champion" Kurt can be heard shouting as he exits the ring. We go backstage where the collection of Dudleyz are rejoicing in their huge non-title victory over the tag team champions! Coachman steps in to try and get their reactions.

    Bubba Ray: "We've been through a lot Coach, but not even as something as unpredictable as a Draft Expansion can slow down the Dudleyz. We're all here. I got my brotha! We got little Spike the biggest back up we've evah had! And even the lovely Dutchess of Dudleyville Stacy."

    D-Von: "We're going to accomplish everything we want here on RAW. First those Tag Team Championships, but that's not all we want. And we will get what we want. We're by the far the superior group running through the WWF today. RAW or SmackDown. Because we're a family! Line em up, and we'll knock em down!"

    Bubbay Ray: "And we WILL be starting with those Tag Team titles. Billy & Chuckles, consider yourselves on notice! Those shiny accessories of yours, are coming home to Dudleyville!"

    D-Von: "Oh my brother! ... Testi..."


    D-Von stops mid-sentence, unable to finish his signature sign off as all 4 Dudleyz stop and stare off screen. Before long, the nWo walk into view. X-Pac, Hall and Nash. There's a moment of silent uncertainty. No one knows what to expect from the nWo.

    X-Pac: "So uh... superior? Think so huh?"

    Stacy steps away as the Dudleyz, Spike inlcuded, step up to the nWo.

    Spike: "You bet your ass."

    Coachman now steps back as well, leaving the situation all together.

    X-Pac: "Huh. Interesting."

    Staredown. Who will fire the first shot. The nWo of course. Hall and Nash both lunge forward, striking Bubbay Ray and D-Von respectively. X-Pac and Spike begin going back and forth as the camera steps back a bit to catch the brawl. Bubba and D-Von get in very little offense, they were jumped and are kept on the ground. Spike actually finds himself getting the better of X-Pac, that is until big Kevin Nash grabs Spike by his shoulders and throws him into the wall! The youngest Dudley of only 150 lbs hits hard and lands on the floor motionless. Stacy screams the entire time, imploring the treacherous trio to stop. Scott Hall chuckles, pulling a toothpick from behind his ear and flicking it at the Dudleyz loyal valet. The nWo walk away glowing with pride as Stacy checks on her boys.

    Terri Runnels is now posted in a different spot in the arena. She expresses her suprise at what just happened between the Dudleyz and nWo, but informs the audience that she has a guest of her own. That guest is Mr. Perfect.

    Terri: "Mr. Perfect, after a grueling match that you unfortuantely were not able to win tonight, the WWF fans showed you great respect for your effort. Do moments like that help soothe the sting of such an upsetting loss?"

    Mr. Perfect looks down after hearing the question, very contemplative before chinning up to answer.

    Perfect: "Well.."

    ???: "Are kidding me!?"


    A hidden voice shouts, cutting Mr. Perfect off before he can really respond. Into view walks Kurt Angle.

    Angle: "Is this what RAW is going ot be all about? We're gonna ask LOSERS how it felt to LOSE and if people liking them makes LOSING any less of a LOSS?"

    Kurt scoffs. The fans in attendance reach a new bass level after Kurt's comments.

    Angle: "While an Olypmic gold medalist has to jump through hoops to become champion. Has to earn championship opportunities. And on top of that, these people boo ME! What a joke."

    Mr. Perfect doesn't show much emotion to Kurt's verbal attack. He still visibly a bit exhausted from his match, and seems somber all together.

    Angle: "This whole thing is a joke. You! "Mr. Perfect", yeah. It's not 1992. You being a champion in 2002, that's the biggest joke of them all!"

    The fans can't believe the disrespect Kurt is showing to a WWF legend. Perfect just shakes his head and walks away.

    Angle: "That's what I thought. Now how would you like to interview a WINNER?"

    Kurt turns to Terri who also simply shakes her head and walks away, which gets a small pop from the crowd.

    Angle: "Really? How disrespectful!"

    Kurt scoffs again and shakes his head. We leave this scene and now see a divided screen. On one side we see The Undertaker walking down a long hall way. On the other side, his opponent for tonight Kane is making the same walk, though his hallway has a dark red tint coincidentally. JR informs everyone that the two must be making their way to the ring, because our main event is next! And with that we again go to commercial.

    When we come back, JR reveals two confirmed matches for next week's RAW from Phoenix! The first Diva's action of the Ric Flair RAW regime happens next week when Molly Holly and former Women's Champion Trish Stratus will meet in a Number One Contenders match!

    [​IMG]

    And of course after tonight's announcement and three qualifying matches.. Edge, Raven and Kurt Angle will meet next week in a triple threat match to determine the NEW United States Champion!

    [​IMG]

    JR reveals that he thinks Edge has a great chance of winning while King of course is 100% behind Kurt Angle. A sudden BOOM! ends all conversation as fire explodes from the stage, signaling the arrival of the Big Red Machine Kane! The masked monster makes his way right down the ramp, adjusting elbow pad before stepping up to the ring. He slowly raises his arms before thrusting them down, which naturally causes fire to explode from all 4 ring posts. Just then, Rollin' by Limp Bizkit begins to play and the crowd turns brutally hostile. The Undertaker lliterally rolls out onto the stage on top of his motorcycle. Through sunglasses he takes a minute to peer out at the crowd. Unimpressed he continues down to ringside where he parks his bike after circling Kane outside the ring. With both competitors soon in the ring, our main event is underway.

    Rollin' again plays throughout the arena. The Undertaker is announced the winner, but yanks his arm away and bucks at the referee when he attempts to raise his arm. The Undertaker watches his fallen brother roll out of the ring when "WOOOOO!" cuts off Undertaker's music and brings out Ric Flair. The crowd gets excited. Is Flair here to fight? Doesn't look like it. Over his shoulder he carries a championship he's been seen carrying many times. Formerly it represented the WCW Champion, but before being unified with the WWF Championship was rechristened the World Heavyweight Championship. Flair enters the ring as his music fades away. Undertaker keeps his distance. If what he thinks is about to happen is going to happen, he knows he doesn't wanna screw it up by doing or saying something to piss Flair off.

    Flair: "As promised, I'm here to reveal the decision to split the Undisputed WWF Championship, and what that means for RAW. Well.. here it is."

    Ric holds the championship in the air for the entire arena to see.

    Flair: "The World Heavyweight Championship. A Championship that I have literally spilled buckets of blood all over the globe to attain and keep. When the board announced their intention to separate this title from the WWF Championship, I made it perfectly clear that Ric Flair's RAW, must have this championship. This ladies and gentlemen.. is the new symbol synonymous with greatness in the WWF. RAW's ultimate prize. The World Heavyweight Championship."

    Flair's passion is building the crowd's excitement. But is he really about to.. award Undertaker the title?

    Flair: "Now that we've answered that question, the only question left is.. who? Well, I'll tell you all right now. I'm glad your here big man, because the very first World Heavyweight Champion is going to be..."

    Of course Ric pauses. Gotta build that anticipation.

    Flair: "The Undertaker."

    What!? IS the general reaction of everyone in attendance. The boo's alone could collapse the arena as The Undertaker can't even hold back an evil grin as he approaches Flair who's holding out the championship. Undertaker reaches for the gold.



    Flair: "Or..."

    *GLASS SHATTERS!*

    The fans freak OUT! They are absolutely falling over each other as Stone Cold Steve Austin comes marching down the ramp. The Undertaker's grin has curled up into an expression of pure rage and disgust as he steps away from Flair and Steve who enters the ring. Stone Cold though closes the gap and gets right up in The Undertaker's face. Undertaker of course doesn't back down.

    Flair: "Whoa whoa hey slow down now! We're not doing this right now. But in a few weeks at Backlash. Yeah, that's when you two can tear each other apart because it will be The Undertaker vs Stone Cold Steve Austin.. for the World Heavyweight Championship!"

    The fans love it! Even though they'd probably rather see these two collide right here tonight, they'll accept an epic Pay-Per-View main event.

    Flair: "What I need you two to do right now, is each take a step back.. and shake hands."

    The people know damn well that's not going to happen, and Flair probably does too. But it appears he wants to reassure and confirm his ability of complete control over RAW. Stone Cold doesn't move. The Undertaker doesn't move. There's plenty of jaw jacking back and forth between the two title contenders, but not much is picked up by the cameras.

    Flair: "I want an iconic photo-op for the first RAW of the Ric Flair era. Now come on. Did you two hear me? I said step back and.."

    NEW! WORLD! ORDER!

    Here comes trouble. The nWo make their way down to the ring. They've already left destruction in their wake tonight, with the tensions already in the ring, this powder keg could explode at any moment! The three enter the ring. Their arrival is the only thing that tear Austin and Undertaker away from each other as each retreat to a separate corner. Flair stands firm in the middle of the ring, refusing to stand down. The nWo arrive with mic's in hand.

    Nash: "I'll tell ya Flair, if you're goal is to piss us off. Well you've done one hell of a job. First you draft us to RAW. Pulling us away from the boss we actually respect, Vince McMahon! Yeah, that's the WWF we wanna represent. Then, you leave us completely off the show, out of spite I'm sure. Now, with any three of us to choose from, you exclude us from a match to decide the World Heavyweight Champion."

    Hall: "Stupid move Flair. Lemme ask you somethin. Did you happen to see what we just did back there? All we did was happen to disagree with that jolly group of jabrone's. So what do ya think happens when someone straight disrespects us?"


    Nash and Hall both drop their mic's. Along with X-Pac, the three begin to circle the ring which forces Flair, Austin and Undertaker all to have to move putting the three of them on the opposite side of the ring. Not a single fan is in their seat as the battle lines have been drawn. As the nWo steps closer, World War III is about to erupt right in the middle of Albany... until The Undertaker falls to his back and rolls out of the ring. The fans condemn him for his cowardice as he stands off by the announcers table, more than willing to watch Austin and Flair be decimated. The two men stand their ground, outnumbered or not, it seems both have no problem fighting the nWo when from out of nowhere pyro shoots from the sky of the arena and slams into the stage, causing an explosion that could only mean one thing. The Dudleyz are here! Bubba Ray, D-Von and even Spike Dudley with chair in hand make a mad dash for the ring. The fans are going crazy. The Dudleyz come to their feet alongside Austin and Flair, the numbers no longer in the nWo's favor. The Undertaker looks to separate himself from the situation entirely as he walks away from the ring, even leaving his motorcycle behind as he leaves up the ramp. Realizing now that they are the ones outnumbered, the nWo turn and exit the ring which brings a chorus of boo's from the crowd. They stand outside the ring, shaking their heads and shouting. They have no problem talking smack now that they're safely outside the ring.. but it probably wasn't the smartest move as the Dudleyz still very heated from the backstage assault bolt out of the ring after Hall, Nash and X-Pac which causes the three to turn and hop over the barricade into the crowd, going to even further lengths to avoid a fair fight. In hot pursuit, the Dudleyz chase the nWo into the sea of people, eventually disappearing from view.

    Flair appears flustered. He picks up his microphone and the World Heavyweight Championship.

    Flair: ".. damn it! I'm not gonna have this type of chaos running RAW! Is that clear? I hope everyone hears.."

    Austin kicks Flair! Right in the gut.. which he instantly follows up with a Stone Cold Stunner! The crowd is shocked. Did Austin really just drop his new boss? He gets back to his feet, passion burning in his eyes he grabs the World Heavyweight Championship on his way up. The Undertaker is still in the arena, now up on the stage where he was able to watch everything unfold from afar. Austin holds the World title out over the top rope towards Undertaker, as if daring him to come and get it. He then raises the title over his head and the crowd cheers! He drops the title near Flair's still body and calls for some beers. RAW goes off the air with Stone Cold smashing a few cold ones together before spilling the beer down his mouth.

    WWF SmackDown! April 4th 2002 - New Beginnings

    Welcome to the Jungle

    SmackDown begins with a recap of all the main draft picks including, Hulk Hogan, Triple H, Chris Jericho and The Rock. The intro package plays and Vince McMahon is in his office with a grin on his face. The Vin man announces that as of this moment Triple H has been scheduled to defend his title at Backlash and his opponent will be the winner of tonight's four man tournament! The huge matches include The Rock facing off with a mystery opponent and Hulk Hogan going one on one with the former champion Chris Jericho. Vince says SmackDown is the premier brand in sports entertainment and the SmackDown dynasty starts tonight! Michael Cole and Tazz welcome us to Rochester New York which will play host to the new era of the WWF. With that being said right now there's cruiser weight action as Tajiri takes on Billy Kidman!
    [​IMG]

    Highlight from the match

    After the match Billy looked pissed and as Tajiri is admonishing Torrie he springs up on the Japanese native and hits a BK bomb and goes up top for his signature shooting star press but Torrie pulls Tajiri out of the ring. She then makes her way up the ramp as Tajiri stumbles in pursuit. Cole and Tazz raise a number of issues such as Kidman's sure fire rematch and just what is going on between Torrie Wilson and the cruiserweight champion. Cole then hypes the one night #1 contenders tournament with Rock vs a mystery opponent being scheduled with in the first hour.

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    Automatic Rematch?


    Chris Jericho barges into Vince McMahon's office demanding to know why he has to face Hulk Hogan and then The Rock/mystery opponent tonight when he has an automatic rematch. Jericho is on the verge of exploding as Vince retorts telling Jericho that this is a new age now and things like automatic rematches no longer exsist. Jericho calls it a travesty of justice and says that at the very least Triple H should not have the night off. Vince agrees and Triple H tonight will face Christian. Jericho calls it a start before leaving only slightly less angry as when he came in. With that we head to the ring.

    [​IMG]

    If I could be serious........

    Lance Storm is in the ring and he has a Canadian flag with him and attempts to start his promo but as usual is just showered in boos and he calls America a disgrace and says he could beat any American at any time of he so wanted to. He calls America a disgrace and the poor man's Mexico. These comments bring out The Big Show to a good reaction. Big Show says he doesn't hate Canada but he hates the jackasses who come to America and criticise it. Show says that Storm said he could beat any American at any time and last time he checked he was American so Storm should face him right now. Despite Lance Storm's original objections the bell rings and are second match is underway.
    Cole and Tazz put over the huge (pun intended) victory that Lance Storm pulled off and Big Show looks very angry that Storm caught him in the hold that time. Cole announces that up next the WWF Tag Team Champions Billy and Chuck will be here and they are facing Rikishi and Scotty Too Hotty. Cole also shills the big #1 contenders tournament to come and Christian vs Triple H as well as the fact we will be hearing from the champ after the break.

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    As soon as we come back Rikishi and Scotty are in the ring dancing as there usual jovial selves. Their music cuts out and Billy and Chuck with their stylist Rico come out to big heat and Cole and Tazz bury them and say that because they're the tag champs they can appear on either show but due to the fact that they're from Raw they stand absolutely no chance whatsoever against a superior SmackDown team. The two teams face off in the ring as the bell rings.
    [​IMG]

    Cole and Tazz are furious at these Raw punks coming onto SmackDown and winning and to make matters worse they're now beating up Rikishi and Scotty with their three on two advantage. However soon enough the music of the APA hits and Bradshaw and Faarooq hit the ring and Billy, Chuck and Rico bail. Cole applauds the two for sticking up for SmackDown and Tazz wants to see these teams fight as we cut to the back.

    Cerebral Champion

    In the back Triple H is in his wrestling gear with his WWF Championship slung across his shoulder and his eyes focused on the camera. Lillian Garcia is with him and asks ' The Game what's going on in his mind right now with him facing Christian later on and who his potential opponent at Backlash could be. His reply goes something a bit like this:

    " Well Lillian in terms of Christian I ain't worried a bit. I've faced plenty of people with more talent than him and I've always kicked their ass so I expect nothing different tonight. Prove me wrong Christian, prove me wrong. Lillian you mentioned Backlash and this whole one night tournament idea and the fact is that I've already beaten Rock and Jericho numerous times and this mystery guy I'm sure if he wins then I'll be able to handle him. When it comes to Hulk Hogan, he's man who I have a great deal of respect for but lets face it he's at an age where he shouldn't be able to contend for the WWF Title. So whoever wins the tournament tonight will have to play the game at Backlash and they will not come out the victor. The fans are behind me and I've never been surer that I'm the best wrestler in the WWF today!"

    Triple H leaves as Michael Cole hypes are first tournament match of The Rock vs a mystery opponent being right after this break.

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    And The Opponent Is......

    The Rock then comes out following the break as Cole reiterates the fact that this match is the first in this one night 4 man tournament and that the Rock's opponent is still yet to be announced. Rock then gets into the ring to a thunderous reaction and poses to the fans before taking the mic and announcing that he has 'finally come back to Rochester!' Rock hypes the fact that it's been a year since he last held the WWF Championship and tonight he's gonna whoop his mystery opponents ass as well as Hulk Hogan in tonight's main event because he know that Hulk is gonna beat Chris Jericho. Rock says to bring out the jabroni who's facing him so he can make him family's before he sends him back to where he came from. These comments bring out Paul Heyman.

    Heyman calls Rock an idiot and says that he's been on top in the WWF for too long and that's he's lost sight of who the real talents are in wresting and that's the new blood. Heyman says Rock will leave the arena tonight in an ambulance and Paul takes a page out of Vince McMahon's book and guarantees it. Rock gives Heyman some of his signature catchphrases but Paul refuses to loose his cool and just smiles and calls Rock an idiot and encourages him to lap it up because this is his last ever WWF appearance. Brock Lesnar then comes out and charges straight into the ring with Heyman in tow as Brock clotheslines Rock as the bell rings.

    Brock then picks Rock up again as Heyman laughs. Brock then F-5s Rock on the outside again before bringing him back in the ring. Brock then gets the steel steps into the ring and gives him yet another F-5 onto the steps before security comes out to restrain Brock as the medics take Rock away as the announce team have gone silent as we fade to commercial.

    [​IMG]

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    End of an Icon

    We see footage of the brutal attack from Brock Lesnar to The Rock and Cole informs us that Rock has left the building in an ambulance while Lesnar and Heyman have been escorted out of the building. Vince McMahon is backstage and he announces that Chris Jericho vs Hulk Hogan later tonight will determine who faces Triple H for the WWF title at Backlash.

    Sucka Say What?

    Booker T is in the back with Lillian Garcia and she asks about his match tonight with Intercontinental Champion Rob Van Dam. Booker says that he's gonna kick RVD's punk ass tonight but then gets interrupted by Goldust who proposes an alliance. Booker asks why the hell he'd so that and Goldust whispers something in his ear. Booker calls Goldust a freak and leaves as Goldust looks dejected.

    Christian is then making his way to the ring taunting the fans and he's wearing Canadian themed tights. Triple H then comes out to a big pop with the title and gets into the ring and poses on the turnbuckle. Triple H and Christian square up to each other as we are ready to go.
    [​IMG]

    Triple H then celebrates in the ring as the announcers hype Rob Van Dam vs Booker T and the #1 Contenders match between Chris Jericho and Hulk Hogan with the winner facing Triple H at Backlash.

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    Latino Heat!

    As we come back from break Booker T is getting into the ring and there's moderate heat for him as the announcers recap his bizarre encounter with Goldust a little earlier. Rob Van Dam, the Intercontinental Champion then makes his way out to the ring to a great pop as the fans chant his name in time with his posing as Mr Thursday Night looks supremely confidant as usual which Booker looking incredibly focused. Before the bell rings however familiar music hits and here comes Eddie Guerrero to a mixed reaction with his first WWF appearance in around a year. He then joins the announce team as the referee signals for the match to begin.

    After the match Booker celebrates and Goldust joins him in the ring but the two face off with each other while Eddie Guerrero clocks RVD with the belt again. He then goes to hit Booker but Goldust throws himself in front of Booker and takes the shot! This allows Booker to book end Guerrero as we head to commercial break with the announcers hyping the main event.

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    Enigmatic

    Backstage and Lillian Garcia is on the scene once again and this time she is joined by Jeff Hardy. Lillian reveals that Hardy requested this time and that the mic is his. Hardy gets the mic thanks Lillian and says something a bit like this:

    " Earlier tonight Brock Lesnar came out here and destroyed one of the greatest of all time a living legend in The Rock. You know Heyman said something that got me thinking and that's that it's a new era now and time for the young guys. And you know what Paul your right it is time for the young guys to step up but it doesn't have to be Brock Lesnar, Paul. It needs to be guys that the fans respect guys like Rob Van Dam, Billy Kidman and myself to name a few. Paul you may have run one company but that's gone Paul and your client Brock Lesnar is intimidating, he is dominant but he isn't unbeatable I mean we've barely seen him compete yet. So Brock I wanna face you as soon as possible and then we will see who's ready to step up and who fades into the night!"

    Hardy salutes the fans and walks off as Lillian throws back to ringside with Cole and Tazz. With that being said it's almost time for the main event as Hulk Hogan for the first time ever faces off with Hulk Hogan. With that being said here comes the Hulkster!

    Born and raised in the US of A

    Hulk Hogan comes out draped in the red and yellow which gets a big pop for the fans. On his way to the ring Cole mentions that it's been 9 years since Hulk Hogan last held WWF gold and if he beats Chris Jericho tonight he's one step closer to regaining the title he lost to Yokozuna in 1993. Hogan then gets the mic and says its goos to be wearing the red and yellow instead of the black and white but there's one more colour that he wants and that's gold! Hogan also mentions that he heard what Lance Storm said earlier and while he did impressively beat the Big Show, the USA has still got a lot of great superstars who will line up to kick Storm's ass. These comments bring out Chris Jericho.

    Jericho calls Hogan a sun burnt dinosaur and says that he shouldn't be worried about Lance Storm but that he's gonna be made an ass clown of by Y2J in front of the entire world on television right now. Jericho says that the closest Hogan will get to holding the gold again is buying a replica belt so he should really start saving up. Hogan calls Jericho an idiot for underestimating phimosis and the largest arms in the world. Chris laughs off these comments and says that those arms were the largest in the world 15 years ago and now Hogan is just some washed up piece of crap who doesn't know when to quit. Hogan says he's beaten plenty of punks like him over the years and Jericho says he a gonna name every former champion he's ever beaten as we go to break with the main event match coming up next.

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    [​IMG]

    Highlight from the match

    After the match Jericho celebrates over the fallen Hogan while Storm and Chrsitian admire their handiwork and leave from whence they came (through the crowd.) Triple H then comes out and stares Jericho down from on the stage while Chris poses like Hogan in the ring as we fade to black.

    Just a couple of thoughts after your first two shows, fellas.

    First of all, good job with the first two shows - they're interesting and really solid. I don't like commenting on storylines after one show so I won't - I'll save that for a later PPV - but my pet peeves were fine - formatting, grammar, punctuation etc ... Just make sure you check little things before posting, i.e. links to images and such. The two confirmed matches for Backlash are big news and I like how both of you are featuring some of the mid card guys and elevating them from the brand split.

    It's also interesting to see two quite different styles in the same BT. One thing I would question is that you do know what the other is going to do? You don't want to clash with things. There were a couple of things about SMACKDOWN that I have gripes with though - Brock Lesnar's debut didn't really work for me; it set him up as a badass but a 4-minute match wasn't needed. You could have had The Rock vs. somebody and have Lesnar destroy them both if you wanted to put him over big. The fact you then set a feud/challenge with Jeff Hardy, who isn't The Rock or his calibre, seemed a little bit of a comedown. Also, Hogan - needed a promo. Coming off that huge WM18 moment, I think something should have been done for Hogan other than simply a loss to Jericho in the main event.

    Short thoughts, I know. Will post more later when the storylines develop further. Good starts though. GCB

    Hey GCB thanks for the comments. Just on the whole Brock Lesnar debuting/Hulk Hogan not addressing The Rock, this SmackDown was not the first one after WrestleMania, a couple of weeks had already past so Hogan would have already addressed The Rock and Brock had already debuted. On the subjecting of clashing don't worry we've already gone through each other's plans at least for the short term. Once again thanks for the compliments on both our shows.

    WWF RAW
    April 8th, 2002
    Phoenix, Arizona



    We see the closing moments of last week's RAW. Ric Flair makes his World Heavyweight Championship announcement. Austin and Undertaker stand nose to nose. The nWo interrupt. The Dudleyz even the odds. And after everyone else flee's.. Austin hits Ric Flair with a Stone Cold Stunner as audio of Flair saying "I'm not gonna have this type of chaos running RAW!" plays over the clip. Austin holds the World Title out at The Undertaker with Ric Flair laying motionless as Jim Ross screams "We're on the brink of an all out war!" closes out last week's recap.


    [youtube]7P5GaCVK5nA[/youtube]​


    RAW comes onto the air and before JR and King can welcome us, bombs drop! Pyro crashes into the stage causing an explosion of even more pyro and as the smoke fades, out come the Dudley Boyz! Bubba Ray and D-Von with Stacy Keibler and Spike Dudley make their way down the ramp as Lilian Garcia announces our opening contest of the night is for the WWF Tag Team Championships! After a non-title victory over the champions last week, it seems the Dudleyz have earned a shot at the titles they promised last week they would be coming for. After the events of last week, not only defeating the Tag Team Champions, but the run-ins with the nWo, the entire Dudley family is giving off a greater feeling of intensity and focus. "You Look Soooo.. Good To Me!" Out next are the WWF Tag Team Champions Billy and Chuck. With them as always is their personal stylist Rico. JR implies that the titles will be switching hands tonight if the champs haven't done their homework and fix the mistakes they made 7 nights ago.

    Round 2 of the Dudleyz and the nWo is on. The referee tries his best to break up the fight but his attempts are hopeless. As the Dudleyz fight with Hall and X-Pac, Kevin Nash grabs a steel chair from outside the ring. When he turns to enter the ring, Stacy stands before him. Nash chuckles then pulls the chair up as if he's going to strike the Dutchess of Dudleyville! Stacy screams and ducks away, allowing Nash to enter the ring. Nash first strikes D-Von in the back with the chair which drops him to the mat. He then turns and hits Bubba Ray square in the head! The fans hiss as the assault continues. Punches, stomps and chair shots continue. Referee's and backstage officials circle the ring demanding the nWo stop, but none dare to physically try. Then all of a sudden the fans begin to cheer, the camera shifts and we see Spike Dudley perched on the top rope unbeknownst to the nWo. X-Pac is the first to turn and is caught with two boots to the chest as Spike shoots down a Missile Dropkick! He quickly gets to his feet.. only to be floored with a sick chair shot that wraps around his head. The wind is sucked out of the arena as the assault continues. As Hall and Nash pile the Dudleyz up in the center of the ring, X-Pac retrieves a bottle of spray paint from underneath the ring. He slides back into the ring as Nash dumps Spike on top of Bubba Ray and D-Von. Hall rips the shirt off Spike's motionless body as X-Pac shakes the can. With an evil chuckle he leans down and sprays "nWo" across Spike's back in black paint. This finally seems to be enough for the nWo as they soon exit the ring which causes the referee's and officials to part like the red sea. The trio take their time leaving up the ramp, soaking in every boo as if it feeds them. JR condemns the three for their actions and wonders how Ric Flair plans to maintain control of RAW as tensions continue to rise.

    JR also mentions that we haven't seen the last of the nWo tonight as he announces tonight's main events. First, a rematch from WrestleMania X8 as Stone Cold Steve Austin takes on the nWo's Scott Hall!

    [​IMG]

    Then of course after the event's of last week. The European Championship was retired and the return of the United States Heavyweight Championship was announced. A series of qualifying matches followed which brings us tonight.

    [​IMG]

    Raven. Kurt Angle. Edge. All three men former United States Champions. All three will try and reclaim that gold tonight. But only ONE will succeed. As the referee's, officials and Stacy Keibler check on the Dudleyz we go backstage. We see The Undertaker! JR says Big Evil is making his way to the ring and announces that he has been allowed to choose his own opponent tonight to warm up for his title match at Backlash! JR and King speculate who he may choose, and King hopes Undertaker calls out Flair and whoops on him again! With this we take our first commercial break.


    When we come back we see the door of the man in charge Ric Flair. Johnathan Coachman is posted right outside the door and says no one has spoken to Mr. Flair all day, but he hopes to get his reactions to Stone Cold's actions last week and what the nWo has already done here tonight. We then go over to Terri Runnels who is chasing down Kane!

    Terri: "Kane! Kane! Can I have a word, please?"

    Kane stops and turns.

    Terri: "Are you heading out to the ring? Are you and your brother The Undertaker going to face each other again tonight?"

    Kane: "Look! My brother has been on a 6 month tear in the World Wrestling Federation. Using fear and violence to try and get the resepct he feels he deserves. I've stayed out of his way, I've let him do whatever he wanted. Well last week he put me down, and he beat me down. Fine. But I'm not staying down. I'm gonna beat him here tonight, and after Backlash whether it's him or Stone Cold that walk out as World Heavyweight Champion I want them to know.. I'm coming for them!"


    Kane turns and continues his march towards the ring.

    We go out to JR and King at ringside. JR questions whether The Undertaker would really want to face his brother Kane again here tonight, but suggests it'd be a slobberknocker of a match! King thinks Kane should learn his place as the runt little brother and show his big brother some respect. Just then, "Rollin" by Limp Bizkit begins to play and out rides The Undertaker. The fans boo The Phenom upon arrival, but he could care less. Undertaker rides his motorcycle down and circles the ring. He parks the bike and leaves his sunglasses on the seat. After entering the ring, he demands a mic.

    Undertaker: "Whether you've noticed or not, I'm usually pretty pissed off. But after last week I gotta say. I'm in a pretty damn good mood. Watching Ric Flair lose all control in just one night was entertaining as hell. He thinks he got under my skin by not giving me the World Heavyweight Championship. He thought that putting me in a match with Stone Cold Steve Austin was supposed to be some kind of punishment or payback. Huh. I know I haven't been WWF Champion in a while. But does anyone care to remember who I beat the last time I became champion? Yeah. It was that bald headed, booze stinkin redneck. And in two weeks I'll do it again. And I'll be, the World.. Heavyweight.. Champion."

    The fans strongly disagree. They begin shouting "WHAT!?" every time there's a pause in The Undertaker's speech. But Undertaker is unaffected.

    Undertaker: "But let's not forget about tonight. Ric Flair is so flustered by everything that happened last week, he couldn't even be bothered to find me an opponent. Instead I have to find my own. No problem. I hear there's someone back there behind a mask that's looking for opportunity here on RAW. You wanna be Champion huh? You think you're ready for The Undertaker? Well tonight's you're lucky night son. You know who you are. You wanna be a hero!? Getcha ass out here. Let's do this."

    The Undertaker lets out a snort and tosses the microphone out of the ring. He turns and puts his back into the far corner and faces the stage. The crowd waits in anticipation for Kane to come out and hopefully this time shut his brother up!




    STAND BACK! ..
    THERE'S A HURRICANE COMIN' THROUGH!

    Wait, what? The Hurricane!? The fans let out a groan. Not out of disdain for The Hurricane, but rather for The Undertaker's cowardice! The Hurricane makes his way out to the stage, but as always, the WWF's resident superhero exudes confidence as he approaches the ring. A small grin curls up in the corner of The Undertaker's mouth as his hand picked opponent enters the ring. The Hurricane stands proud in the middle of the ring with both fists on his hip when BAM! Hurricane is kicked right in the jaw with a big boot from The Undertaker. The Hurricane's music comes to a sudden stop and the referee jumps in front of The Undertaker demanding he return to his corner and wait for the match to start. Undertaker does so, the smile on his face a little bigger. The ref checks on Hurricane who has retreated to his corner. The referee asks The Hurricane if he's ready, he even asks if he's really sure, and both times The Hurricane emphatically answers YES! The ref calls for the bell.
    The Undertaker is announced the winner. The referee goes to raise the Undertaker's hand but he rips his arm away and shoves the referee to the mat! He then looks down at Hurricane for a moment before picking him up yet again. He holds him up for a moment, shouting a few insults before spear chucking him through the top and middle turnbuckle right into the ring post. Hurricane falls through the ropes out of the ring, bumping off the ring apron before hitting the floor. The Undertaker follows him out of the ring and helps him back up before throwing him as hard as he can into the barricade which scoots back a little from the impact. The fans hate Undertaker. But he still doesn't care. The Hurricane is dead still. Undertaker takes his time. He shouts at Lillian to get her ass up and takes her chair are she scurries away. He grabs Hurricane by the hair with one hand and slowly drags him up to his feet once again. After folding the chair he puts the top of it into Hurricane's throat. We've seen this before. He put the Hardyz out of action with this same assault. Taker waits only a second before throwing the chair down to the ground, the top of it driving right into Hurricane's throat. The hero drops back to the mat with both hands around his throat, his loud gasps for breath can be heard even over all the heat from the fans. The Undertaker walks away as a few referee's start checking on Hurricane. He approaches his bike and picks up his sunglasses. He puts them on his head and takes a seat as medic's come rushing past him. He stops for a moment and watches them appraoch Hurricane, and for some reason, this gets a rise out of the Deadman. He takes his shades off and rushes back over to the scene. He scares everyone away from Hurricane then turns to the announce table. He rips the top cover off and starts yanking out the monitors. Undertaker is hell bent on destruction and making an example of The Hurricane. JR and King step away to a safe distance. JR screams for somebody, anybody to stop this madness. And his plea's are finally answered when BOOM! Fire errupts from the stage. The Big Red Machine has seen enough. Undertaker stops dead in his tracks and turns to the stage where his brother has wasted no time making his way down the ramp. Kane starts circling to the ring to where his brother currently stands, but Undertaker takes off walking the opposite direction. As Kane reaches the announce area, The Undertaker is now back to his bike. Kane contemplates chasing his brother for a moment, but decides to stay near Hurricane and the team of medic's to make sure Undertaker doesn't try and continue his attack. Taker shakes his head before mounting his bike and riding away. Replays are shown of the victory and the post match assault. After the replays we seen Hurricane now on a stretcher. With a neck brace on for protection, the team of medic's roll Hurricane to the backstage area. JR does not condone the actions of The Undertaker here tonight, and again questions just how Ric Flair intends to regain order over RAW as things continue to spiral further out of control.

    JR let's us know we're heading back to commercial break but when we return it'll be for Diva's action! The King is a tad excited.

    Before RAW returns we see the RAW Slam of the Week! It briefly recaps Ric Flair's U.S. Title announcement last week, and Edge's victory over the incumbent European Champion William Regal to qualify him for tonight's big title match. Now back from break we go backstage where Terri Runnels is standing by with Edge himself.

    Terri: "Edge, last week you scored a huge victory and your steady roll of momentum brings you to Phoenix with a shot to become United States Champion. What are you thinking going into tonight's match?"

    Edge: "Ya know Terri, what I'm thinking about right now, is history. Not just the almost 30 year history of the United States Championship itself. But my history with the United States Championship. Like how I was the last man to hold that championship before it was unified with the Intercontinental Championship 5 months ago. I also think about who I beat to win the United States Championship. You remember who that was? I sure do. It was Kurt Angle. One of my opponents tonight. And history.. history is going to repeat itself. Because I'm going to beat Kurt Angle. I'm also going to beat Raven. And I will walk out of RAW tonight with the championship I technically, never lost."


    The fans are eating it up. They can tell Edge believes in Edge. And the fans believe in Edge.

    Edge: "Tonight I make history and become the WWF United States Champion!"

    Terri: "Thank you Edge."


    The confident young superstar walks away and we go back out to the ring where Molly Holly is already in the ring. After Lillian announces her, out comes Trish Stratus. The former champion came up short in her attempt to regain the Women's Championship at WrestleMania in her hometown. But that was a Triple Threat match. If she can win tonight, she gets Jazz 1 on 1. Before the match can start though, the Women's Champion makes her way out onto the stage. With the Women's Championship around her shoulder and the undivided attention of both Trish and Molly, Jazz walks down to the announcers table where she joins Ross and Lawler on commentary.

    Trish and Jazz just seemed destined to continue to collide over the Women's top prize. Jazz leaves the announce table as soon as Trish gets the 3 count. As the referee raises Trish's arm in victory she's grabbed from behind by Jazz. The champion hooks both of Trish's arms and looks to be locking in the Bitch Grip! But Stratus knows it all to well and is able to yank her arms away. Now free she quickly turns around and kicks Jazz in the stomach. She grips the champion's head and starts to go for Stratusfaction again, but Jazz pushes her away and rolls out of the ring. The champ grabs her Women's Title off the announce table and retreats back up the ramp as Stratus shouts that she's taking back her title.

    We go backstage where Terri is right outside the Trainer's Room door. She hopes to get an update on The Hurricane when Kane walks up. Before he can enter the room, Terri again asks him for a few words.

    Terri: "Kane why did you go out there tonight? Why did you help The Hurricane?"

    Kane's breathing hard. He's still obviously worked up from what happened out in the arena.

    Kane: "Tonight my brother showed me his true colors. Now we've had our differences in the past, but there's where all that is, in the past. For the last few years we've fought side by side for both pride and championships. But he's changed. He's no longer the "American Bad Ass". He's a coward."

    The fans let out an "oooooh" in unison.

    Kane: "He was too big of a coward to fight the nWo last week. He was too big of a coward to fight me tonight. And he was too big of a cowards to take his victory like a MAN. If he ever agree's to face me again in that ring.. the monster, will make him a man."

    Kane walks away and enters the trainers room, presumably to check on Hurricane. We go back to Coachman who is still waiting outside Ric Flair's door. He again states that NO ONE has spoken to Mr. Flair all night, and how he feels about everything that's happened here tonight is still unknown. Three matches down, and three post match assaults have followed. He hopes to speak with Flair very soon. The camera zooms in on the nameplate on the door, "RIC FLAIR" as we go to commercial.


    We come back from commercial in the same place we were when we went to break. With Coachman outside Flair's office. He's seen waiting patiently when William Regal approaches and knocks on the door.

    Regal: "Mr. Flair... Mr. Flair I really must have a word!"

    Coachman: "Excuse me, William Regal. What is your business tonight with Mr. Flair?"


    Regal turns away from the door and looks at Coach with a bit of disgust, as if, "Who are you to talk to me?"

    Regal: "My business with Mr. Flair is MY business. When I want you to know something, I'll be bloody damn sure to let you know, but until then bugger off!"

    Regal returns to knocking, but is getting no response whatsoever.

    Coachman: "Not that it's any of MY business Mr. Regal but.. don't you have a match like, next?"

    Regal is in his gear, and looks back at Coach, again with disgust. He looks back at the door then down at the floor for a moment before walking away mumbling to himself. Again we go from Coach to Terri who has another guest. This time, it's Raven.

    Terri: "Raven the one time you were United States Champion in WCW.. you held the title for only, one day. Is tonight you opportunity at redemption?"

    Raven scoffs.

    Raven: "Redemption? Yeah, as if my goal for the last 4 years has been to reclaim the United States title. My goal for the last 4 years, has been to get to the top. I don't care about the United States Championship. You know what I care about? Main eventing RAW. Defeating Edge. Defeating Kurt Angle. That championship is just another stepping stone to the top. I've floated around the WWF for far too long. There are plenty of guys out there who didn't get drafted by either brand. And now they have no job. That's a wake up call. For some reason and I don't care why, Flair drafted me. I'm either gonna make him proud he did so, or make sure he lives to regret it. Either way, I'm done floating around here. Tonight isn't about the return of the United States Championship. It's the rebirth, of Raven. Quote the raven.. nevermore."

    Raven extends his arms and stares straight into the camera. We go back out to the arena where William Regal makes his entrance. He stands in the ring only staring out at the crowd as Matt Hardy's music hits the speakers. The fans go bonkers! As always with his girlfriend Lita by his side, Matt Hardy makes his way to the ring.

    Regal takes a moment before he finally releases the hold. Lita quickly slides into the ring to check on Matt as Regal stands and his announced the winner. The vicious look on his face slowly fades away as the referee raises his arm. He looks back at Hardy before raising his nose and exiting the ring. Right before we go to commercial we again go backstage hoping for an update from Coachman but we don't see Coach. He's gone, and Ric Flair's door is open. We fade out to break as JR asks where Flair could be?


    We come back and see Kurt Angle backstage. The fans instantly boo and jeer the Olympic Gold Medalist. On a nearby monitor he's watching a clip from an episode of RAW late last year. It's when he won the United States Championship. Terri steps into view to see if Kurt has a moment.

    Terri: "Excuse me Kurt. Is watching this helping you prepare for your match tonight?"

    Angle: "First of all Tori, I'm always prepared. This here, is when America's Hero become America's Champion. And that's what I will be again after tonight. It's what I have to be. You know what happened after I won the U.S. Title? I took down the Alliance by myself and kept the WWF alive!"


    Kurt is referring to when he betrayed the Alliance and assited the WWF in winning the Winner Take All match at Surivor Series. Something Kurt and Mr. McMahon revealed as a secret plan all along.

    Angle: "Tonight I win the United States Championship, then put the WWF on my back AGAIN when I go become the World Heavyweight Champion! Oh it's true, it's DAMN true!"

    Kurt shoo's Terri away and rewinds the clip back to the beginning so he can watch his victory again. But he doesn't get the chance as Mr. Perfect steps into view. Gripping the towel around his neck, Perfect stares at the monitor then up at Kurt as Angle asks just what in the hell he wants.

    Perfect: "I just wanna give you some advice Kurt."

    Angle: "Advice? YOU wanna give ME.. advice?"

    Perfect: "I do."

    Angle: "Oh I can't wait to hear this."

    Perfect: "You put a lot of pressure on yourself Kurt. Now I know you're no stranger to pressure. I mean, you're an Olympic Gold Medalist. But that was six years ago. And it's been well over a year since you were WWF Champion."

    Angle: "What's your damn point Perfect? Where's this, advice?"

    Pefect: "You said.. you kept the WWF alive all by yourself. But what have you done since then Kurt? You failed to become the first Undisputed Champion. You lost the Royal Rumble. I remember, I was there. You found a way to steal the title shot for WrestleMania.. but managed to screw that up in less than 24 hours. And ultimately failed to main event WrestleMania for the third year in a row."

    Angle: "I don't have time for this.."

    Perfect: "Don't choke!"

    Angle: "What?"

    Perfect: "That's my advice for you. Don't choke. Tonight really is your chance to get back on track. Gold cures all ills. But if you choke out there tonight. If one of those up and comers gets the better of you. I mean, where do you go from there? It's a slippery slope down the mountain Kurt. Don't choke."


    Perfect smirks and walks away. Kurt looks pissed! And concerned. He throws the remote to the ground as we go to ringside. The King proclaims Kurt Angle will once again be America's Champion when he wins here tonight. JR and King then start to breakdown the upcoming match. The WrestleMania Rematch between Stone Cold and Scott Hall when they're suddenly interrupted..

    WOOOOO!


    All of a sudden here comes the man of the hour, Ric Flair. There's been a dozen questions tonight about not only what he'll do, but where's he's been, perhaps he's ready to answer those questions. Ric Flair enters the ring and motions for a microphone. He waits for his music to die down before he finally speaks.

    Flair: "I'm not too proud to admit that last week, things go a little out of hand and I, well I lost control. I knew that was a risk I was taking when I drafted the nWo. I knew when I drafted The Undertaker that he would hate me even more. And I knew, when I drafted Stone Cold Steve Austin that he had a problem with.. authority."

    The fans cheer. Maybe they have a problem with authority too.

    Flair: "There's been a hundred questions since last week and about a hundred more since we went on the air tonight so I'm gonna make this short and sweet and go down the list. First, the nWo. The nWo and the Dudleyz obviously wanna fight. And I'll be damned if I let that fight tear RAW to the ground. So at Backlash, in a Six-Man tag team match, it will be the entire Dudley family against the nWo! Feel free to tear each other apart then."

    The fans love it! JR puts over that a war is heading to Kansas City in two weeks.

    Flair: "The Undertaker. Tonight your actions were borderline criminal. Nothing you did from the moment you rode into this arena until the moment you rode out were actions befitting of a World Champion. But you seemed pretty happy that someone left on a stretcher at your hands. Well I KNOW someone who isn't too happy with you at all. The Big Red Machine, Kane. No body fights like family, and next week I'm gonna give your brother a chance to feed you some of your own medicine Undertaker. Because you and Kane will go 1 on 1.. in a Stretcher Match!"

    Again the fans show Flair they approve of his decisions with a huge ovation.

    Flair: "Finally. Stone Cold Steve Austin. I'd like to address you man to man, so if you would, please.. come on out here."

    The fans begin to buzz. Did Flair just call out Stone Cold Steve Austin? Be careful what you ask for.. *Glass Shatters* Out comes Stone Cold Steve Austin to a deafening reception from the live audience. Austin's match is next, so he comes out in full gear ready to fight. But will that fight be BEFORE the match? Austin hits the ring and makes sure to climb all four corners, throwing up the middle fingers each time. He steps down from the last corner and turns right towards Flair.

    Flair: "Austin... Austin. Look. I didn't call you out here to fight. I can't fight anymore. I don't fight. I'm a business man now it's no secret. I didn't call you out here to punish you either. But, I did call you out here.. to warn you."

    The fans ooooh and aaaawe in anticipation for how Austin might react to a warning.

    Flair: "It's not a threat. I just need you to understand, that what you did to me last week. That's not how things work around here anymore. I can't have it. I will be respected on RAW. I have to be. I've never done anything to you Austin. I'm fully aware of your value to this company. I don't wanna change you. I'm not ashamed of you. I wanna strap the rocket to your ass and watch you take RAW to new heights!"

    There's a pause. Looks like cooler heads may prevail. Hard to tell if the fans are happy about that though.

    Flair: "Do we understand each other?"

    Flair extends his hand. Austin just looks at it. Half the fans want him to shake, the other half are begging for another Stunner. But the screen goes grey. The picture starts to riff.. and out comes the nWo. The fans boo as both Austin and Flair turn to face the trio. Scott Hall leads the way as his Nash and X-Pac follow. Less than a month ago these two clashed on the biggest stage of them all, and tonight they go at it one more time. Hall enters the ring. Flair exits the ring, but doesn't leave. He stands near the announcers table as the match gets underway.

    Stone Cold's music plays in victory. But the moment doesn't last as Kevin Nash and X-Pac make their way back down the ramp. Austin quickly notices them and turns ready to the fight. The two approach the ring, but Ric Flair quickly rolls into the ring. He comes up to his feet behind Austin with a steel chair in head. He steps beside Austin, which catches Stone Cold off guard, but he soon realizes Flair is standing WITH him. The two look at each other for only a moment before their attentions turn back to the nWo. Nash and X-Pac take a moment to consider what their best move would be. There's a definite buzz. The fans want the fight they didn't get last week... but they won't get it this week either. Nash reaches in and grabs Scott Hall's foot, pulling him towards them and out of the ring. The trio retreat up the ramp as Austin and Flair hold their position. Once the nWo is at a safe distance, Austin turns to Flair. Ric drops the chair, and the two just stare at each other. Again, Flair extends his hand. Again, Austin just stares at it. The fans are in agreement now that they'd like to see these two legends shake hands when in the corner of the screen, The Undertaker is seen sliding into the ring. Ric Flair doesn't have time to react before BAM! A wicked chair shot to the back of Stone Cold's head connects! Ric Flair immediately picks up his chair, and with Austin down on the mat between them, The Undertaker and Flair have a stand off. Just when it seems these two may start swinging for the fences, The Undertaker throws his chair down at Flair's feet, then exits the ring. The fans boo as Undertaker bails in the direction from which he came. Flair drops his chair then falls to a knee and checks on Stone Cold. The Rattlesnake is resilient and eventually rolls from the ring and walks out on his own, leaving Flair by himself in the ring. Even with his best attempts to restore order, RAW is still surrounded in chaos.

    JR informs everyone that coming up next, is our main event.

    [​IMG]

    He tells King it's prediction time, but Lawler sticks with his original pick Kurt Angle. Believe it or not, Jim Ross agrees and states as always, Kurt Angle will rise to the occasion. But the only way to find out is to stay tuned. We go to commercial.

    "You think you know me?" and out comes Edge. A replay of him defeating William Regal last week is shown as he makes his way to the ring. Soon after him comes Raven. A replay of his victory last week is shown as well. A surprise victory over Mr. Perfect. And finally, Kurt Angle. The odds on favorite marches to the ring as his quick victory over Diamond Dallas Page from last week is replayed. All three men stand ready in the corners. For the first time we see the United States Championship as the referee for the match holds up showing, showing everyone what's on the line. Once a staple of WCW, the title has been re-branded with a WWF logo. The ref hands the title off and calls for the bell. Our main event gets underway.

    "Never Gonna Stop" by Rob Zombie blares throughout the arena and the fans go crazy! The referee quickly hands Edge the United States Championship and Edge goes right to the corner. He climbs up to the middle rope and holds the title up high in victory. A replay of the final sequence is shown as Edge exits the ring. Edge now stands on the stage holding the title up with both hands. Raven sits outside the ring against the steel steps, visibly frustrated at how things went down. Kurt is now on his knees. Both hands cover his face. He did it. He choked. RAW goes off the air with Edge celebrating with his new championship.

    WWF SmackDown! April 11th 2002 - Canadian Pride

    A recap of last week plays with the highlights including Brock Lesnar sending The Rock to the hospital, the various issues between Hulk Hogan, Big Show, Lance Storm and Christian as well as Chris Jericho becoming the #1 contender at Backlash. After the pyro airs Cole and Tazz welcome us to the show with the announcement that tonight Bradshaw takes on Billy with a tag title shot on the line as well as Eddie Guerrero making his in ring return against Goldust. With that the music of Vince McMahon hits.

    No Remorse

    Vince strides down to the ring and proclaims that SmackDown is by far the best brand in the WWF and he will continue to prove it tonight as he's just about to make another block buster announcement. Tonight in tai very ring there will be a beat the clock challenge! Vince continues that Chris Jericho will face Booker T while Triple H will face Lance Storm and the person with the winning time will get to choose the stipulation to the title match at Backlash but if either of the other two competitors win they are added to the title match.

    Vince then has a serious look on his face and says that last week Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar were responsible for sending The Rock to the hospital where he still is and that he demands the two of them to come out here right now. The chairman does not have to wait long as soon enough Heyman comes out with Lesnar in tow. Vince says that the board of directors want them to apologise for their actions but Vince says that he admires Brock and knew he made the right call picking him. Heyman laughs and says that Brock wants a match and he wants it right now. McMahon laughs and says unfortunately the board have requested that Lesnar does not compete tonight. This revelation brings out Jeff Hardy.

    Hardy calls Lesnar sick and says that no man deserves the beating that The Rock took last week and that he will gladly return the favour tonight. Heyman laughs and says Brock has no remorse and will send Hardy to the hospital with The Rock. Vince intervenes and says that Hardy already has a match against D-Lo Brown tonight but announces that he will face Lesnar at Backlash. With that Heyman nods and gives the F-5 to Hardy as a stunned Vince McMahon looks on. Heyman calls Brock off and says that Hardy will get what he deserves at Backlash but right now he's demanding an opponent for Brock. Lesnar stars down the boss and Vince announces that he'll find Brock an opponent to face right after the break.

    [​IMG]

    (Lesnar delivers a brutal F-5)

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    As we come back Lesnar is standing in the ring as Heyman is cutting a promo about how Brock dominated the greatest competitor of all time last week and that Heyman guarantees that Brock will be the WWF Champion before the year is out. Paul says that Vince is taking a long time probably because Jeff Hardy was the only person stupid enough to take on Lesnar and calls him the next big thing. With that Rikishi's music hits and Heyman's laughs as he comes to the ring. Brock grins as the bell rings.



    Lesnar poses as Scotty to Hotty runs out to check on his fallen partner. Heyman once again nods at Brock and the beast flattens Scotty with a clothesline before hitting an F-5. He gets a table out and goes for a power bomb but Rikishi cuts him off. Rikishi tries to take down Lesnar but he gets a head butt for his troubles. Lesnar hoists both men over his shoulders and hits a double F-5 through the table! Brock poses in the ring as we head to the back.

    [​IMG]

    Don't hate the game, hate the player.....

    Booker T is in the locker room getting ready when Goldust comes in. Goldust tries to apologise for interfering in Booker's match last week but Booker fends him off and calls him a freak and says that he's the reason he hasn't got an Intercontinental Title shot as he tainted his victory although he appreciates that Goldust has got his back, tonight he's got one shot to redeem himself and get a WWF title shot so he better not screw it up for him. Goldust asks if he would accompany him to his match with Eddie Guerrero but Booker T just shrugs him off and leaves. We then head back to the ring where Billy is waiting for his opponent. Bradshaw comes out and we are underway!



    Bradshaw and Faarooq celebrate as it's announced that the two teams will face in an inter brand match at Backlash by Michael Cole, who also hypes that we will hear from Rob Van Dam, the intercontinental champion, after the break!

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    We return backstage with Lillian Garcia who is with the Intercontinental champion Rob Van Dam, and Lillian asks him about who he feels the top contenders to his title are. His reply sounded like this:

    ' Well Lillian a lot of guys want to face Rob Van Dam, after all I am Mr Thursday Night and the Intercontinental Champion! Last week Booker T seriously impressed me and I reckon if that goof Goldust hadn't interfered then he may have beaten me. But one guy who definitely got on my nerves last week was Eddie Guerrero. I appreciate that he's a great competitor but attacking me after my match ain't cool. He knows that fresh he wouldn't stand a chance against RVD but I would be more than welcome for him to face me and try and prove me wrong. I haven't got a match tonight but I'll be watching yours carefully Eddie, and who knows you may soon have the privilege of facing the whole Dam show Rob Van Dam!'

    Rob Van Dam smiles and leaves with his Intercontinental Championship over his shoulder as we head to the ring where Goldust is midway through his entrance. After he finishes looking notably looking dejected due to a lack of Booker T, Eddie Guerrero comes out to decent heat with a grin on his face. He jumps in the ring and the referee signals for the match to begin.



    [​IMG]

    (Eddie goes for the frogspalsh)

    After the match Eddie gestures for a belt to be around his waist before grabbing a steel chair and goes to hit Goldust. However Booker runs out and stops him as Eddie retreats through the crowd. Goldust goes to hug Booker but he sandbags him and sends Goldust to the back. Cole reminds us that Booker T vs Chris Jericho in a beat the clock challenge is next.

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    Coming back Booker is warming up in the ring as Chris Jericho comes out and welcomes us to SmackDown is Jericho and brags that he's gonna beat Booker in record time. Booker seems to disagree as he gives Y2J a huge punch as the match begins.



    After the match Y2J celebrates as the fans seem to applaud Booker. Cole tells us that Jeff Hardy has not been medically cleared to face D'Lo later tonight so that match has been cancelled. Up next Hulk Hogan will address Christian and Lance Storm which Tazz seems pumped for.

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    More than Just Competition

    [​IMG]

    Hulk Hogan then makes his way out to the ring draped in the red and yellow and received a heroes welcome as he should. Hogan looks less than pleased however as Cole goes over the events of last week as Hogan had the upper hand over Jericho but then Storm and Christian cost him the match and the #1 contenders position at Backlash. Hogan cuts a traditional Hogan promo calling Storm and Christian a bunch of cry baby Canadians that could never compare themselves to the almighty Hulkster and Hogan proclaims that there are young guys on SmackDown like Booker T and Rob Van Dam who are trying to make a name for themselves while Storm and Christian have to try and make their names at others expense and they picked the wrong Icon to take down. As Hogan goes for his signature line new music hits and here comes Storm and Christian.

    The two Canadians are in their wrestling gear with an upside down American flag on them. Christian calls Hogan the oldest joke and says that they hate everything that Hulk and America stand for as it's all a sham so they're the UnAmericans. Hogan says they've got balls defacing the American flag like that but Storm chuckles and says that it's about more than just flags it's about destroying the legend of Hulkamania and sending it where it belongs and that's in retirement. Hogan bats this off and says he'll kick birth their asses at once but Christian says he may want to reconsider that because he's now looking at the most dangerous, motivated and focused tag team in the business today. The UnAmericans then start circling Hogan until the music of Big Show hits.

    Big Show storms to the ring as the UnAmericans back off from Hogan and don't fancy taking on an angry giant. Big Show says that tapping out to Lance Storm last week was a low pint for him but he's has a week to reconsider and says that he's now the angriest he's ever been! Show reveals that he spoke to Vince McMahon earlier toady and he's got two huge announcement. Number 1: Big Show and Hulk Hogan are teaming up at Backlash to take on the UnAmericans and that Big Show has a match with Christian next. Christian days he'll best Show just like Storm did and says that beating him and Hulk at Backlash will be the first of many great victories for them. Hogan then chases Lance Storm to the back as Christian vs Big Show is next after this commercial break.

    COMMERCIAL BREAK



    Christian then just unloads on Big Show in frustration but Hulk Hogan's music hits. Hogan charges to the ring and Christian wisely flees as Hogan checks on a very angry Big Show. With that we head backstage where Lillian Garcia is standing by with the WWF Champion Triple H. She asks about his upcoming match with Lance Storm, his title defence at Backlash vs Chris Jericho and what stipulation he will pick. He replies:

    'Jericho beat Booker T in nine minutes and we all know that I'm a far superior competitor to Jericho and Booker's got a lot more talent than Lance Storm so I'm planning on knocking him off pretty quickly just like I did to his buddy Christian last week. As for Backlash and Jericho it really doesn't matter what stipulation we fight in because we all know that I can kick his ass in multiple ways. We could have a match where I'm wearing a blind fold and he's armed with a steel chair and I'd still retain the title. Jericho's proved he isn't worthy of this WWF Championship and now without distraction from Stephanie or anyone else he knows it's only a matter of time before it's game over.'

    Best of 5

    Triple H leaves as we head back to Vince McMahon's office where he is sitting at his desk with Tajiri, the cruiserweight champion, and Billy Kidman in front of him. The two are being separated by two burly looking security guards. Vince says that he wants the cruiserweight to be a highlight of SmackDown and announces that Tajiri and Kidman will compete against each other in a best of 5 series with the winner being declared cruiserweight champion. Vince announces that the two will have their first match on the Backlash pre show but right now he wants Kidman to showcase his skills against Chavo Guerrero and that match is after the break!

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    Backstage (Latino) Heat!


    Backstage Rob Van Dam is hanging in his locker room and looks to be leaving the arena until Eddie Guerrero attacks him! Guerrero stomps away at him briefly before sending him head first into the lockers security then barges in and takes Guerrero away as he laughs while medics attend the beaten down Rob Van Dam. Kidman then makes his way to the ring followed by the re-debuting Chavo Guerrero. Tazz notes their history in WCW with each other as the match gets underway.



    [​IMG]

    (Kidman briefly celebrates his win)

    After the match Kidman celebrates until Tajiri runs in with Torrie chasing behind him. Tajiri sprays mist in the eyes of Kidman and then clocks him in the head with the belt. Torrie tries to pull Tajiri of Kidman but it's no use as Tajiri pounds on him more until he's done. Tajiri then drags her away as we head backstage.
    Before we go to commercial we see side by side shots of Triple H and Lance Storm getting ready for their beat the clock challenge which is next.

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    Lance Storm comes out to the ring first to a sizeable amount of heat while wearing his UnAmerican T-shirt as Tazz mentions his match with Christian vs Hogan and Big Show at Backlash and that he will pulling double duty if he beats Triple H here tonight, but he must do it in under 9 minutes. Triple H comes out as Cole recaps Triple H's victory over Christian last week and how if he beats Storm in under 9 minutes he gets to choose the stipulation at Backlash. The two competitors are now both in the ring as the bell rings.

    (Highlights from the match)

    This finish instantly brings out Christian and Jericho as the three on one beat down commences. Jericho then gets a sledgehammer out as Lance and Christian handcuff Hunter to the ropes. Jericho sends the UnAmericans to the back as he has a mic:

    'Triple H, you stupid son of a bitch, what I have right here is what you consider dangerous and what symbolises you and that's a sledgehammer. Hunter at Backlash I'm gonna end your own weapon because at Backlash we are having a no holds barred match. Now I don't have your ass clown of a wife riding my coat tails I'm gonna beat you one on one fair and square and claim the last thing you have left, your title! Ang you know why? Because I am the King of the World!'

    Jericho poses mocking Triple H before clattering him with a sledgehammer. SmackDown ends with Jericho holding up a sledgehammer in one hand and the WWF title in the other as we fade to black.

    Update - April 2002


    It's certainly been a very intriguing month in the World Wrestling Federation as we are in the midst of the first full month of the new brand extension. TV ratings have remained relatively stagnant on both shows although creative has certainly been interesting and it's obvious that each show has it's own set of story lines and championships and the two brands do feel as though they are competing with each other. Raw's even upped the ante by introducing a brand new set as well as channeling its inner WCW as two belts from that company have made an appearance. Right now lets get get onto the four main bullet points for each show.

    Raw

    1. Greater star power at the top. Raw's main event for Backlash is Undertaker vs Steve Austin to crown a new World Heavyweight Champion, which while is a match we've seen before it's certainly has the biggest names involved.

    2. Cutting the crap. The European title has finally been retired after three years of meaning nothing and with the Hardcore title rumoured to be going soon this can only be considered a good thing.

    3. Chaotic atmosphere. The Dudleys and NWO feud has been my personal highlight of Raw for the past couple of weeks due to its wild nature and the whole fiasco has done something rarely done with an authority figure and that's drum up sympathy for Ric Flair as he looses control of his show,

    4. Dream match potential. While not confirmed it's almost guaranteed that Angle and Perfect will square off at Backlash and it's dream matches like these that have invested me in the Raw product.


    SmackDown


    1. Elevating new stars. Lance Storm and Christian are in a feud with Hulk Hogan and the Intercontinental Title is being treated as important along with the rise of Brock Lesnar gives me great hope for SmackDown's future.

    2. Fixing Y2J. Jericho was booked awfully as champion but on SmackDown in recent weeks he's actually looked better than Triple H and made the no holds barred match much more interesting,

    3. Less is more. This refers to Vince McMahon who for the first time in about five years is not the star of the show every week and it feels much better that he's taking more of a back seat.

    4. Cruiserweights. The best of five series between Kidman and Tajiri for the title is a good idea and puts over the division. Hopefully the finals make it onto the Judgement Day card.

    WWF RAW
    April 15th, 2002
    College Station, Texas



    We see clips from last week's RAW. Austin and Flair stand across each other in the ring as a Flair soundbite plays, "I'm not too proud to admit that last week, things got a little out of hand.." at that moment we see when The Undertaker attacked Stone Cold from behind with a steel chair. We also see The Undertaker's post match assault on The Hurricane. Finally we see highlights of the nWo's attack on the Dudley Boyz. Jim Ross screaming "RAW truly is WAR" plays over a slow clip of Flair's shocked face and one final soundbite plays of Flair stating "I will be respected on RAW. I have to be."

    [youtube]7P5GaCVK5nA[/youtube]​


    We come on the air and Ric Flair is already in the ring with microphone in hand. After RAW's intro music fades out the WWF co-owner gets right to business.

    Flair: "I just watched the same footage you all did. To say that my first two weeks of control have been anything but embarrasing, would be a lie. But Rome wasn't built in a day, and I have a great vision for RAW that will make sure we are the premiere brand in sports entertainment for decades to come. That starts this Sunday, when we crown a World Heavyweight Champion. But before we can do that, we have a little business to handle tonight. So right now, I'm going to need The Undertaker to come to this ring. Now."

    The fans come out of their seats. It's about to get real.

    "Rollin" by Limp Bizkit breaks out and here comes The Undertaker. Perched on top of his motorcycle the Phenom makes his presence known. JR and King remind us what's at stake this Sunday. Two of the WWF's greatest icon's battle to decide a World Heavyweight Champion. Who will pioneer RAW into the next generation?

    [​IMG]

    As the graphic goes down, The Undertaker has parked his motorcycle and is entering the ring. The Undertaker steps through the ropes and steps right up to Ric Flair. The boss doesn't stand down. As Undertaker's music comes to an end, Flair raises the mic.

    Flair: "I also need Stone Cold out here. Now."

    The Undertaker suddenly has a very serious look on his face. The fans pop big but instantly top that reaction when the glass shatters and Stone Cold comes marching through the curtain with chair in hand! Looks like Austin may want some revenge for last week's attack. The Undertaker backs up to the far side of the ring as Stone Cold approaches. Flair stands firm in the middle and begins to shout..

    Flair: "Hold on Austin, HOLD ON!"

    Stone Cold rolls into the ring with the chair.

    Flair: "Austin if you take one more step with that chair I promise you'll be sitting at home this Sunday!"

    Austin stops in his tracks, his eyes never leave The Undertaker.

    Flair: "Now if you two can act civil for ONE second, I'll explain. Due to the high stakes of this Sunday's main event, and the high tension on RAW. I'm making a ruling as of now, that if either of you two lay one hand on the other tonight.. you will be removed from the World Heavyweight Championship match at Backlash, and the pay-per-view all together!"

    There's a mixed reaction from the crowd. Some understand the rule, some just wanna see Austin and Taker destroy each other.

    Flair: "That includes chair shots.."

    Austin for the first time looks away from Undertaker, now staring at Flair. He hesitates for a moment, but eventually drops the chair.

    Flair: "Thank you. Now all we gotta do is make.."

    The Undertaker takes the microphone away from Flair.

    Undertaker: "Excuse me Ric, but there's just been something I've been dying to get off my chest for a week now."

    The fans let out an "oooh". You never know what to expect from The Undertaker.

    Undertaker: "Last week, you said my actions were not fitting of a champion. And I have to.. respectfully disagree. For example, look at that bike I showed up on here tonight. That is a fine piece of American machinery that cost thousands of dollars. Would you prefer you champion show up to the arena in a pick up truck with empty beer cans sliding around in the back?"

    Austin takes offense and steps towards Undertaker. He's mouthing off but the camera doesn't pick it up. Flair extends his arms between the two men in hopes of keeping them apart.

    Undertaker: "Oh you know what, I did say I would disagree "respectfully". Maybe that was out of line. But I would really like to change your mind Flair. So, if you'd give us a momentary break from your no touch ruling, I'd like to give you something you asked for. Two weeks ago, you wanted us to shake hands. And well, I'm in a good mood. So.. what the hell."

    The Undertaker extends his hand towards Austin. Is this.. the same Undertaker? Flair looks at Undertaker with ZERO trust in his eyes. But he realizes these two shaking hands, would be a great step in his attempt to establish authority. Flair nods and can be heard saying "You better not mess this up." Undertaker and Flair both look at Austin, who doesn't budge. Austin's arms remain at his sides, and the fans cheer the decision. Flair and Undertaker both seem dejected.

    Undertaker: "I'm sorry Flair, I tried. I understand your ruling for the night, and I fully intend on following it. I won't lay one hand on Austin."

    Undertaker then turns his extended hand towards Flair. The fans implore Flair not to take the hand, but he does so. The two rivals shake hands. All seems calm... until The Undertaker smirks. At that moment he shoves Flair into Stone Cold, and both men fall to the mat! Undertaker drops and rolls out of the ring, making his way around to the ramp. The fans are surprised and Austin immediately gets up and tries to chase down The Undertaker, but Flair holds him back.

    Undertaker: "Why you so mad Austin? I didn't touch you!"

    Undertaker lets out a chuckle and drops the microphone as he backs up the ramp. Austin picks up the steel chair he dropped earlier and raises it. He's gonna throw it at The Undertaker! Flair grabs Austin by the arm and restrains him again. Big mistake. Stone Cold hits Ric Flair with a Stunner! The fans are shocked. The Undertaker seems very pleased that he can so easily get into Austin's head.

    Referee's come out to check on Flair as Austin leaves the ring. We go to JR and King at ringside. JR expresses concern over Austin being unable to keep his cool which has led to him assaulting his new boss twice in three weeks. After a replay of Undertaker shoving Flair into Austin, and Austin eventually hitting Flair with a Stunner, we see Flair making his way up the ramp flanked by officials. He's holding his neck, and looks very aggravated.

    We go backstage and see Edge making his way down a hallway with his newly won United States Championship over his shoulder. Edge is dressed to compete, and JR confirms that the U.S. Champ will be in action next! We take our first commercial break of the night.


    Before RAW resumes we're see highlights from last week's triple threat main event for the United States Championship. Edge stands victorious after pinning Kurt Angle. Now back from break we see Kurt Angle backstage. It looks like he's waiting for someone, but who? We find out pretty quick as Flair comes walking in still surrounded by officials and now Arn Anderson. There's heavy discussion among the group until Angle interrupts.

    Flair: "..what do you want Kurt?"

    Angle: "Look Flair, I know you were depending on me last week to win that match and be a True American champion. But.. well I got distracted! That dinosaur Mr. Perfect.. he got in my head Flair! I want to be champion.. but I really need to kick his ass!"

    Flair: "You.. want Mr. Perfect?"

    Angle: "Oh yeah. I want Mr. Perfect TONIGHT!"

    Flair: "Fine. You get Mr. Perfect. This Sunday."

    Angle: "Sunday? Screw Sunday! I want to kick his ass tonight!"

    Flair: "Kurt I'm not arguing this with you! As much as you annoy me, you vs Perfect is a pay-per-view quality match, so pay-per-view is where it will happen. But to shut you up, I'll give you Perfect tonight, in a tag team match. Both of you find partners, and go nuts."

    Angle: "That works for me. Thank you Flair."

    Flair: "Get out of my office Kurt."


    The fans pop for both announced matches. JR hypes how much of a fantasy match up Kurt Angle vs Mr. Perfect is and can't believe he'll witness it at Backlash. "You Think You Know Me.." the unmistakable theme of Edge begins to play. The fans let out a roar as the popular young stars comes running out on the stage. With his new United States Championship secured around his waist, Edge makes his way to the ring. His opponent is already in the ring waiting for him, and that opponent is Test. JR quickly mentions that it was Edge vs Test at Survivor Series last fall that unified the United States and Intercontinental Championships.

    Edge celebrates his victory as his momentum continues to build. We go backstage and see Mr. Perfect. He's conversing with Matt Hardy and Lita. It's a quiet discussion that the camera doesn't pick up, but it looks like Mr. Perfect may have already found his tag team partner as Matt Hardy smiles and shakes Mr. Perfect's hand. JR states we're on the verge of a commercial, but on the other side of the break, the war between the nWo and the Dudleyz wages on.

    [​IMG]

    Up next. X-Pac takes on Spike Dudley.. in a Cage Match!


    We come back to RAW as pyro falls from the arena's roof. It collides into the stage which causes an explosion of even more pyro. This brings out the Dudleyz! Spike Dudley is flanked by his brothers Bubba Ray and D-Von but noticeably absent is Stacy Keibler who was most likely left behind for her own safety. The smallest Dudley appears confident as he approaches the cage. He gives a fist bump to each of his brothers before entering the ring enclosed by the steel cage. After a moment the screen goes grey and the nWo strut through the curtain. Kevin Nash and Scott lead the way while X-Pac trails behind. As the nWo make their way down the ramp, two groups of security file down either side of the ramp. The Dudley family stands outside the far side of the ring in front of the commentary area. The nWo stay down at the bottom of the ramp as the security squads take post on the side of the rings. JR confirms that Ric Flair called for the heavy security to prevent another all out brawl. As X-Pac enters the cage, JR and King hype that these two factions are on a collision course for this Sunday.

    [​IMG]

    Spike and X-Pac stand across the ring from each other as the referee locks the cage door. With so many bodies surrounding the cage, their's a big fight feel and even bigger feeling that all hell is about to break loose.

    As the Dudleyz music begins to play, Spike pushes up to his feet and scurries away towards the ramp. He's eventually met by his brothers as they help hold him up. The nWo stand surrounded by fallen security guards and are livid. X-Pac lays in the ring, clearly spent from the fight he just endured. The Dudleyz celebrate up on the stage, now joined by the Dutchess of Dudleyville Stacy. JR wonders if this is the same scene we'll see at Backlash when the war finally comes to a head in a Six-Man tag match.

    Backstage we see Kurt Angle leaving the locker room area. He starts down the hallway and JR wonders how Angle's search for a partner is going. We go to commercial.


    We're welcomed back to RAW by Johnathan Coachman.

    Coachman: "Please welcome my guest, the number one contender for the Women's Championship here tonight.. miss Trish Stratus."

    Stratus: "Thanks Coach."

    Coachman: "Trish your title match is moments away. Are you confident that tonight is the night you can finally defeat the champion Jazz?"

    Stratus: "Ya know Coach, I am. Winning the Women's Championship last year was a dream come true. A dream that at one time I thought never would come true. Then Jazz swooped in and turned my dream into a nightmare. She took everything away from me. Well I've worked too hard and too long to let my dreams slip away. I thought I had her at WrestleMania.. but it wasn't my night. Tonight, tonight is my night. I can feel it.

    Coachman: "Thanks Trish, good luck tonight."

    Stratus: "Time for some Stratusfaction."



    Trish gives Coach a wink and walks away. We see Kurt Angle again, there's a loud commotion, and it appears he's approaching it.

    Angle: "Hey guys. Yeah guys over here!"

    Kurt Angle walks right up to the Dudleyz who are celebrating Spike's victory moments ago.

    Angle: "Hey great match Spike. You're tougher than I ever thought."

    Bubba Ray: "Can we help you Kurt?"

    Angle: "You actually can! I don't mean to interrupt you're celebration, but I'm sure you've heard about my tag team match against Mr. Perfect tonight.."

    Bubbay Ray: "Nope."

    Angle: "..and I'm allowed to pick any partner I want. Now Perfect has already suckered Matt Hardy into teaming with him tonight. Now Matt, yeah he's good. The Hardyz were a heck of a tag team. But I was thinkin.. you know who's even better than the Hardy Boyz? The Dudleyz!"

    Bubbay Ray: "You really think so?"


    Angle: "Absolutely! You guys are best! So I don't really care which of you it is, but I could really use the BEST tag team partner out there tonight. What do'ya say?"

    Bubba and D-Von look at each other. Stacy stands behind them snickering.

    Bubbay Ray: "I say.. you better keep looking Kurt! C'mon guys."

    The Dudleyz walk away as Kurt briefly pleads for them to come back. It's a lost cause. Kurt appears flustered and storms away. We go back out to the arena where Trish Stratus' music begins to play. The popular young diva makes her way down to the ring to a great ovation. Her opponent however, is despised. Jazz marches down to the ring paying the fans no mind. With the Women's Championship firmly around her waist, Jazz enters the ring ready to fight as always.

    The air is sucked out of the arena as Jazz rolls out of the ring as soon as the bell rings. Trish comes up to her knee's with a look of complete dismay on her face. The ref races around the ring to hand Jazz her championship and raise her arm in victory. A replay is shown of the pin reversal and Jazz holding the tights. We see Trish again, shaking her head in disappointment as she holds her arm, likely sore from the submission hold.

    We go backstage, again joining Kurt Angle in his search for a partner. He walks down the hall way and passes by a group of superstars. Kurt stops and turns towards them. We see William Regal in a suit. He's talking with Albert and DDP. They talk in a hushed tone and Regal hands the two superstars a clipboard. As they all look at it and discuss, Kurt can't help but interrupt.

    Angle: "Hey guys, whatcha talkin bout?"

    William looks back at Kurt startled and takes the clipboard back from Albert.

    Regal: "We'll continue this conversation later, thank you gentlemen."

    He essentially shoo's the other two away and Albert and DDP walk away. Kurt seems confused but now that the number of potential partners have dropped from 3 to 1, he gets right to the point.

    Angle: "Look Regal, Flair has stuck me in a tag team match tonight, and I really need a partner. And I'm standing here thinking about how dynamic of a team Kurt Angle and William Regal would be and I know we could beat Mr. Perfect tonight."

    Regal: "I know all about what Flair has been up to I assure you, but unfortunately I'm just too busy to help you tonight Kurt. Best of luck."


    Regal turns and leaves in the same direction as Albert and DDP without giving Kurt a chance to get another word in. Kurt stands with his jaw hanging for a moment before rolling his eyes and letting out a groan.

    Before we go to commercial, JR announces that after the break it will be Stone Cold Steve Austin taking on Kevin Nash. Austin was successful in his WrestleMania rematch last week against Scott Hall. Can the Texas Rattlesnake make it 2-0 against the nWo?

    [​IMG]


    We come back from break and we're shown a replay of what happened at the top of the show. JR explains Flair's "No Touch" rule for Austin and Undertaker tonight. We see Undertaker shoving Flair into Austin, and eventually Stone Cold dropping Flair with a Stunner. We go backstage where Flair is sitting on the coach in his office. All the officials and security who were with him earlier in the night have left, and it's just him and Arn Anderson alone.. until they're not. Arn is talking to Flair when his attention is suddenly caught by something off camera.

    Anderson: "What are you doing here?"

    Flair's head shoots up. He instantly grabs his neck, obviously still feeling the stunner.

    Flair: "You want something?"

    The camera pans over, and we see Raven.

    Raven: "I want Edge."

    Flair: "Well you can't have Edge. He already had a match. You'd know that if you weren't so busy sneaking up on people. What's with everyone thinking they can just demand a match?"

    Raven: "Then give me Edge Sunday. He didn't beat me last week, he beat Kurt. I'm not gonna be a footnote in his rise to the top. I can make his U.S. Championship disappear just as quickly as he got it."


    Ric is obviously not in the mood.

    Flair: "Listen, Raven. I have plans for Edge this Sunday. I have plans for the United States Championship. Neither of which, involve you. So if you'd please.. actually, not please. Get out now."

    Raven remains calm, but his eyes are boiling. He stares at Flair and Arn for a moment before turning to leave. He reaches for Flair's door just as Maven opens it up. Maven enters the room with the Hardcore Championship over his shoulder.

    Flair: "Well look, someone that I actually ASKED to come to my office. What a nice surprise. Come on in Maven."

    Raven brushes past Maven and exits the office as Maven approaches Flair.

    Flair: "Have a seat. I need to watch this next match, but we have lots to talk about."

    Maven: "Sounds like a plan."


    Arn steps off the coach allowing Maven to sit next to Flair. Just as he does, the screen turns grey. The visual of Flair and Maven starts to cut out before the whole screen turns to static. We glitch back out to the arena where Kevin Nash makes his way out to the stage. Usually rolling 3 deep with the rest of the nWo, Big Kev is actually alone as he makes his way down to the ring. Nash enters the ring and looks towards the hard camera. He goes to throw up his arm and do his usual pose before *GLASS SHATTERS!* Here comes Stone Cold! Austin marches down to the ring as always with deadly intention. He steps through the ropes, but instead of going towards any of the corners he walks right towards Nash on the two start brawling! The ref tries to break them apart for a moment, but eventually just steps back and calls for the bell.

    Austin's getting beat down outside the ring until Nash yells something at the other two. They both nod and pick Stone Cold up, pushing him back into the ring where Nash gets a few stomps in. Scott Hall walks over to the announce area where he takes Lilian Garcia's chair away. At the same time X-Pac reaches under the ring, eventually pulling out a can of spray paint. The nWo regroup in the ring where Nash is pulling Austin up. Pac drops the spray paint and grabs hold of Austin along with Nash. Stone Cold is on his knees with Nash and X-Pac holding his arms. Hall is all smiles as he taunts Austin with the chair. Hall cocks the chair up preparing to destroy the Texas Rattlesnake when suddenly the Dudley Boyz music begins to play! The fans erupt as Bubba Ray and D-Von sprint to the ring. The slide in and get right into the fight. Bubba goes after Hall, D-Von tackles X-Pac which allows Austin to get back to his feet and resume his fight with Nash. The nWo don't go down easy and the fight is all over the ring. D-Von eventually forces X-Pac out of the ring. Somehow Austin has gotten his hands on the very steel chair that was meant to put him down, and he cracks the chair into Kevin Nash's skull! The big man crumbles and rolls out of the ring. This leaves Scott Hall on the wrong side of a 3 on 1 fight. He finds himself face to face with Austin holding the the chair. Hall quickly turns away, only to be scooped up by D-Von and thrown down with a huge 3D! The fans love it. X-Pac reaches in and pulls Hall out of the ring by his feet. The nWo are retreating! As the 3 backtrack up the ramp, Austin throws the chair out of the ring towards them as his music begins to play. The Dudleyz stand behind Austin ready to fight just in case the nWo find some bravery and come back down. We see a replay of the Dudleyz making the save, Austin's chair shot and eventually the 3D.

    We go back to Flair's office where he and Maven are still sitting in the same place. Flair is slowly nodding.

    Maven: "Well that got pretty crazy."

    Flair: "The craziness never stops... but forget about all that."


    Flair stands up off the couch and Maven follows his lead.

    Flair: "I know you sat at home for 2 weeks and probably wondered the whole time why I even drafted you. Well you have a lot of potential Maven, but with that Hardcore Championship of yours, you're a walking target. Believe it or not I'm trying to prevent chaos on RAW. A championship that's defended 24/7 with no rules whatsoever.. that breeds chaos."

    Maven looks down at his Hardcore Championship.

    Flair: "But don't worry, I'm not just gonna take your title away. I've tried to do everything I can to make Backlash historic. And this Sunday.. we're gonna have a unification match! It will be you versus the United States Champion Edge! Both of you walk in as Champion, but only one will leave that way. How's that sound?"

    Maven: "Definitely sounds historic, thank you so much for the opportunity Mr. Flair!"


    Maven extends his hand and Flair shakes it.

    Flair: "Well I look forward to seeing you perform on a big.. HEY!"

    Maven is attacked from behind! It's Raven! After dropping Maven with a clubbing blow he stomps the young superstar a few times before picking him up and throwing him over the couch.

    Flair: "What the hell are you doing!? Stop damn it!"

    Arn Anderson steps in to restrain Raven put gets punched in the face and thrown over Flair's desk. Flair keeps his distance as Raven starts dragging Maven back up to his feet. Maven throws a few punches at Raven's abdomen but they have little effect. Raven holds Maven up and kicks him twice in the stomach before grabbing him by the head and dropping him to the floor with the Ravenflow DDT. Raven comes up to a knee and glares at Flair, a sick smile on his face. Flair his speechless. Raven turns and lays on Maven. He pulls his leg up like he's pinning him and suddenly he is as a ref falls into view to make the count!

    Raven gets up to his feet and the referee hands him the Hardcore Championship. Raven takes the title and shoves the referee away. He steps towards Flair and gets face to face. Raven's panting a little bit thanks to the mini-brawl.

    Raven: "You were saying Flair.. I got Edge this Sunday?"

    Flair looks disgusted as he stares a hole through Raven.

    Raven: "Definitely sounds historic, thank you so much for the opporutnity.. Mr. Flair. It's exactly what I wanted."

    Raven mocks Maven, almost exactly repeating what he said just seconds ago before getting jumped. Raven turns and leaves the office. Flair shakes his head and shouts asking for some help for both Maven and Arn. This sends us to commercial.

    When we come back JR and King briefly recap everything that happened before the break as a replay of shown. JR also confirms the unification match for Backlash is official. The new Hardcore Champion Raven will face the United States Champion Edge. Just like Raven wanted.

    [​IMG]

    Again we go backstage. Kurt Angle is now in his gear and frantically heading down a hallway. His head swings back and forth as he looks at each door. Apparently he finds the one he was looking for as he halts and barges in.

    Angle: "Champs!"

    The camera enters the room with Kurt and we see the WWF Tag Team Champions Billy & Chuck with their stylist Rico.

    Billy: "Hey Kurt."

    Angle: "Guys look, I really need your help. I have a tag team match like, now! And I still don't have a partner. You two are the Tag Team Champions! There's no one better for this than you. So.. you in?"


    Billy and Chuck give each other an awkward look.

    Chuck: "Kurt uh.."

    Rico: "We'd love to help!"

    Billy: "We would?"

    Rico: "Of course!"

    Angle: "Alright! Which of you guys is it gonna be?"

    Rico: "Well Kurt, you see, my boys here have a big match this Sunday. I need them as rested as possible to defend their Tag Team Championships. So I'll be your partner!"


    The fans love it.

    Angle: "You!? No no I don't really think.."

    Kurt's music starts to play.

    Angle: "Crap! Fine, Rico you're up!"

    Kurt turns and leaves, Rico smiles big and follows behind him. Billy and Chuck are a little confused, but very amused. We go out to the arena where Kurt's music has been playing for about 30 seconds. Finally Kurt emerges through the curtain and quickly makes his way down to the ring. "You look soooo, good to me" and here comes Kurt's partner. Not Billy. Not Chuck. It's Rico! The stylist makes his way down to the ring, and appears very confident. Up next, the unmistakable theme of the Hardyz. The fans go nuts as Matt Hardy makes his way onto the stage with Lita. Mr. Perfect's first choice was a damn good one as the tag team expert makes his way down to the ring, but doesn't enter it just yet. Finally Mr. Perfect enters the arena. JR reminds everyone that earlier tonight Ric Flair made what many would consider a fantasy match up OFFICIAL for this Sunday when Mr. Perfect and Kurt Angle go one on one at Backlash.

    [​IMG]

    Once the partners are together they enter the ring along with Lita and all pose. Everyone falls back to their corners as the ref calls for the bell.

    Angle loses without ever getting tagged into the match! Matt Hardy stands and rolls into the ring where Lita has already joined Mr. Perfect. Hardy and Perfect shake hands before the referee steps in and grabs both their hands to raise in victory. Kurt Angle is irate on the outside. He can be heard yelling "Wait til Sunday Perfect!" from the ramp as he slowly leaves the ringside area.

    JR congratulates Mr. Perfect on his win but insists it will be more challenging to pick up a victory this Sunday against an athlete the caliber of Kurt Angle. He then informs everyone that up next is our main event.

    [​IMG]

    Six nights before The Undertaker attempts to become World Heavyweight Champion, he meets his very disgruntled brother Kane in a Stretcher Match. JR questions if continuously antagonizing his new boss and reeking chaos has finally caught up with The Undertaker. We go backstage where Johnathan Coachman is trying to catch up with Kane who's heading out to the arena.

    Coachman: "Kane! Kane, I'm sorry I was just hoping to get a few words before your match up next."

    Kane stops in his tracks and slowly turns his head back towards Coach.

    Coachman: "Your brother avoided a match with you last week in favor of facing The Hurricane who he easily defeated then assaulted after the match until you came to his aid. Are things getting.. personal between you and Undertaker?"

    Kane: "It's impossible for things between me and my brother not to be personal. From the moment I showed up in the WWF, things have been personal. I know my brother knows better than to look past me towards his big title match on Sunday. Which is good, because tonight will be a night my brother never forgets. Tonight I'm gonna teach The Undertaker about respect."

    Kane turns and continues down the hallway.

    Coachman: "Thank you Kane."

    We go back out to the arena. JR and King discuss the upcoming match for a moment before BOOM! Fire erupts from the stage. The fans come to their feet as Kane makes his way through the curtain and heads down the ramp. He adjusts his elbow pad as he approaches the ring. Kane enters the enters the ring and stands in the middle. He slowly raises his arms before thrusting them down which causes fire to shoot up from all four ring posts. JR announces that our match kicks off after the commercial.


    We come back from break as Kane's music fades out. The Big Red Machine waits patiently in the ring for his brother's arrival. It's doesn't take too long for "Rollin" to start playing. After a moment The Undertaker rides out on his motorcycle for the second time tonight. Just like before he doesn't pay the crowd or their less than positive reaction to him much attention as he rides down the ramp and circles the ring. The Undertaker parks his bike at the bottom of the ramp. As he does, a referee rolls a stretcher down the ramp. As The Undertaker enters the ring, we get a shot of a yellow line up on the stage at the top of the ramp. JR explains there are no disqualifications in this match and that the first superstar to push their opponent across that line on the stretcher wins the match. The brothers stand across from each other in the ring ready to battle just like they have so many times before.

    Undertaker leans against the stretcher as the bell rings and he's announced the winner. His music begins to play and King puts over how gutsy a performance it was by the Deadman. Undertaker condemns The Undertaker for taking things to such a low level against his own brother but King insists than a true champion will do whatever it takes to win. Undertaker stands straight up and just looks down at his brother who is still on the stretcher. Taker looks pissed. He grabs hold of the stretcher and turns it. The stretcher now points towards the side of the stage. Undertaker looks down at his brother and shouts, "You respect me now!?". The fans start to yell, they see what's coming. Undertaker starts jogging, pushing the stretcher along the stage. JR starts to scream, he's begging Undertaker to stop. But Undertaker doesn't care. He pushes the stretcher off the stage and Kane flies about 10 feet down to the concrete floor. The fans erupt in boo's. JR again voices his disgust in Undertaker's actions and asks King if that's what a true champion does. A replay is shown of Undertaker pushing Kane off the stage. After the replay we see a lot of medical staff, referee's and eventually Ric Flair checking on Kane. Flair looks up at Undertaker who just chuckles and walks away. He heads down the ramp towards his motorcycle when from out of nowhere, Stone Cold Steve Austin comes through the crowd and hops the barricade. The Undertaker stops in his tracks. Austin his about 10 feet away from Undertaker, and he's right next to Taker's bike. Ric Flair must see this happen from where's he's at because he leaves Kane's side and a few moments later comes out through the curtain with a microphone.

    Flair: "Hey! Don't move! Damn it I'm so tired of this. If you guys touch each other, losing your championship match this Sunday will be the least of your problems because I swear to God I will fire you!"

    The stakes have risen. There isn't a fan in their seat as Austin and Taker could throw it all away and at moment. Austin reaches back and pulls a thick lead pipe out that was hidden under his shirt. It looks like Austin doesn't care, he just wants to hurt The Undertaker.

    Flair: "Austin! Don't push me! I should have fired you twice by now. I mean it Austin!"

    Flair is on edge. You can tell by looking at him he's mentally exhausted from the last month of complete anarchy. Austin just smiles, then slowly turns his head towards The Undertaker's motorcycle. The fans get louder and The Undertaker takes a step towards Austin who instantly pulls the pipe up as if daring Undertaker to try. Taker stops and raises his hands up towards Austin. He begs Austin not to touch his bike. Austin takes a moment. He's breathing pretty heavy, but nods his head as if he's calmed down and slowly lowers the pipe. Undertaker lets out a huge sigh of relieve until Austin slowly raises up a middle finger. Undertaker's eyes grow wide again.

    Flair: "AUSTIN!"

    BANG! Austin slams the pipe into the side of Taker's bike. He tee's off on the bike hitting it over and over. He shatters the headlight. He beats on the handle bar until it's bent down. The fans are going crazy. Undertaker stands in silence as Austin kicks the bike over. He stands over the bike and beats the hell out of it with this pipe. Flair drops his mic and too stands in silence. Austin destroys Undertaker's bike until he is physically too worn out to keep down so. He finally stops and looks back up at Undertaker who is livid pissed. Austin shouts, "I didn't touch you Taker!" then throws the pipe down towards Taker's feet. He flips Undertaker off again, then directs the birds up towards Flair. Austin turns and rolls into the ring. He signals for some beers and his music starts to play. Undertaker kneels down by his bike and surveys the damage. The camera looks over where Kane was pushed off the stage. He's again on a stretcher and pushed backstage out of view. Ric Flair drops his head and leaves the stage. RAW goes off the air with Austin standing in the corner. He smashes some beers above his head and pours whats left in the cans down his face. JR hypes that Austin and Undertaker finally collide this Sunday at Backlash!

    WWF SmackDown April 18th 2002 - Chaos

    After the usual SmackDown intro package we get a brief summary of the beat the clock challenge last week with Chris Jericho defeating Booker T in 9 minutes and Triple H failing to win in that timeframe against Lance Storm. The post match beat down from Jericho with the sledge hammer is shown as well as the stipulation being determined as No Holds Barred for Backlash. With that we throw to the commentators, Michael Cole and Tazz who inform us that right now we are heading to Vince McMahon's office where he will be announcing the featured bouts on tonight's broadcast. The shot then changes to Vince McMahon sitting on his desk with his usual smug look on his face. He says the following:

    [​IMG]

    'As Ric Flair continues to loose control of Raw with Steve Austin and the NWO running roughshod I am pleased to announce that SmackDown is the brand in sports entertainment that you can trust ladies and gentlemen. Now as we head forward into Backlash, which is a mere 3 days away I feel as though the WWF Champion Triple H has something to prove after being embarrassed by Lance Storm which is why 'The Game' will face Lance next! Also tonight I would like the intercontinental title to be defended at Backlash and so we need to determine a number 1 contender for said title. Which is why tonight in this very ring Booker T will take on Eddie Guerrero. Now of course I'm sure RVD doesn't want to miss out on the action so he will take on Goldust. Following on from last week Tajiri will face a mystery cruiserweight and Jeff Hardy vs D'Lo Brown will take place tonight! Now hit Lance Storm's entrance music!'

    Lance's music hits and he comes out alongside Christain clearly pleased by what the boss has said. Storm looks incredibly focused as the WWF Champion Triple H comes out as Cole mentions how Jericho attacked him with his own weapon last week. Hunter gets in the ring and poses on the turn buckle but Storm sneaks up on him from behind as we are ready to go.

    The brawl continues as various officials try and separate the six men. Eventually Vince McMahon comes out and he says this is not Raw where we brawl aimlessly, this is SmackDown where we fight! Vince announces that Triple H will team with The Big Show and Hulk Hogan to take on Chris Jericho, Christian and Lance Storm in tonight's main event. Everyone looks pretty damn pleased with the decision as we head to commercial.

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    Newcomer Shannon Moore is in the ring as we come back as he looks pretty hyped as he poses to the crowd with his theme song playing in the background. The familiar oriental sounding theme plays as the cruiserweight champion Tajiri accompanied by Torrie Wilson, who is still dressed in traditional Japanese attire make their way to the ring. Tajiri stares down Moore as the bell rings.

    After the match Tajiri makes Torrie bow as Kidman sprints to the ring. The Cruiserweight champion scrapes as Kidman mouths off to him. Cole reminds us that these two face each other on the Backlash pre show in the first match of their best of 5 series for the cruiserweight title.

    Goldlust

    Booker T is in his locker room and Goldust approaches and creepily thanks him for helping him last week. Booker explains that he did it because it was right, not because he's Goldust's friend and that he doesn't want Goldust anywhere near his #1 contenders match against Eddie Guerrero later tonight. Goldust promises he won't be, besides he's got bigger things to worry about because he face Rob Van Dam next week and Goldust says he'll do anything to get some gold around his waist. He leaves as Booker keeps warming up.

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    When we come back the Intercontinental champion Rob Van Dam is making his way to the ring to a great ovation as usual. The announcers hype Van Dam's recent run ins with Booker and Eddie and their #1 Contenders match later on tonight. Goldust then enters to a fairly decent response with Cole saying that Goldust just wants Booker to be his friend while Tazz implies that he wants to be more than that. The two shake hands as the bell rings.

    [​IMG]

    (Highlights from the match)

    Rob Van Dam celebrates after the match until Eddie Guerrero appears on the big screen and calls Rob a fraud and someone unworthy to call himself an Intercontinental Champion. RVD laughs and says is that's so why doesn't he come to the ring and back his claims up. Eddie laughs and says he'll prove he's the best when he beats Booker T later on tonight. RVD poses with the belts as his music hits and Cole alerts us to a situation backstage.

    Next Big Problem

    We see that both Rikishi and Scotty are laid out in a pool of blood as the camera pans around to see Brock Lesnar smiling in a sadistic way looking over his presumed victims as medics rush to attend them. Paul Heyman then wonders into shot and begins to speak:

    ' You see this Jeff Hardy! This is you in just three short days when my client Brock Lesnar destroys you. Mr Hardy it doesn't matter how may flips you do, how many times you fly off the top rope or how many weapons you can jump off my client is going to break you. Brock will crush you, Brock will make you feel pain that is unimaginable. Doing a swanton through 6 flaming tables would not even be close to the pain Brock is going to deliver to you at Backlash. My client has taking out bona fide legends like the Rock in a matter of seconds so how the hell do you think your gonna hold up! Jeff enjoy your match with D'Lo Brown because it's the last match you have a remote chance of winning as after Brock faces you this Sunday you will never compete again! And that my friend is a promise!'

    Brock smiles as Heyman signals for them to leave and the two do as we head to break.

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    As we come back Cole announces some breaking news that tonight's main event will be an elimination match as per orders of SmackDown owner Vince McMahon. Tazz compliments his boss on the announcement as Eddie Guerrero makes his way to the ring as Cole reminds everyone that the following contest will determine who faces Rob Van Dam at Backlash. Booker T comes out next to an increasingly more positive reaction as Tazz notes that fans have been increasingly more supportive of Booker since the draft. Cole also once again recounts his strange relationship with Goldust. The two men are in the ring and the match is underway.

    Cole and Tazz applaud the match but ponder what it means for the match at Backlash. Rob Van Dam then comes out with Vince McMahon who announces what everyone wants to hear and that's we will be having a triple threat at Backlash! RVD says he's gonna enjoy kicking Eddie's ass at Backlash and Booker's a great competitor but he isn't Rob Van Dam! The champ's music hits as we cut to the announcers as they run through the Backlash card.

    As the announcers are running through the card D'Lo Brown has been making his way to the ring to finally have his match with Jeff Hardy. Speaking of which the 'extreme enigma' comes out looking incredibly focused after what Paul Heyman said about him and his match with Brock Lesnar at Backlash. Hardy gets in the ring and here we go!

    [​IMG]

    (Jeff Hardy makes his way to the ring)

    Hardy then goes to celebrate with the fans as the announces hype the big six man elimination main event that's coming up later on as well as Chuck vs Faarooq which is next!

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    Back from the break Faarooq is making his way to the ring as the announces hype the fact that the WWF Tag Team Championship Match at Backlash is Raw vs SmackDown. Tazz hopes that the APA can bring the tag titles over to SmacDown. With that Chuck comes out with Billy and Rico as Faarooq had Bradshaw at ringside. The two competitors circle each other as the bell rings.

    Chuck celebrates with Billy and Rico in the ring until Bradshaw armed with a steel chair scares them out of the ring. The two teams face off with each other as a brief promo hyping the Raw matches on Backlash air as well as what's happening on the Backlash pre show.

    Talk the Talk

    Chris Jericho's music hits and he comes out with the UnAmericans, Lance Storm and Christian in tow. Jericho welcomes us to SmackDown is Jericho and calls tonight a preview of what's gonna happen at Backlash as he swears that not a single member of his team will be pinned while all the other team will be eliminated. Christian calls Hunter, Hogan and Big Show everything that is wrong with the WWE and the USA and tonight marks the first stage in their demise with the last stage being preformed at Backlash. Storm says that their opponents tonight are all like the fans in the arena tonight; American pieces of trash.

    These comments bring out Hogan and Big Show who call the fact that these three are even allowed on SmackDown and that not even Raw would accept them. Jericho laughs and calls Hogan a jealous old fool as he's still mad that he got beat by Y2J two weeks ago. Show interrupts and says that Jericho may talk a good game if WrestleMania is anything to go by he can't back it up in the ring. Chris snaps at this and starts ranting about how Stephanie McMahon is the only reason he's not WWF Champion but that wrong will be righted when he kicks Triple H's ass at Backlash in the no holds barred match and reclaims the WWF Title. This brings out Triple H!

    The champ is on the ramp with Hogan and Big Show and the three look ready to go. Hunter grabs a mic and angrily calls Jericho pathetic and says that he will avenge the attack with a sledge hammer last week tonight and if Jericho makes it at Backlash. Jericho retorts and says Hunter doesn't stand a chance at Backlash and even less of a chance tonight as Jericho's partners are elite Canadian athletes while he's got an old guy and a fat guy backing him up. Hogan is angry with these comments and says that right now he, Big Show and Triple H are gonna run wild on Jericho and the UnAmericans right now! Cole says that the elimination match starts right after this break!

    COMMERCIAL BREAK

    [​IMG]

    (Highlights from the match)

    After the match Jericho grabs the belt and stands over Triple H once again with the sledge hammer in one hand and the belt in the other. Tazz brings up that sledge hammers will be legal on Sunday as Cole hypes Backlash as we fade to black.

    BACKLASH PRE-SHOW

    ===cmuk316===


    Heat hits the MTV airwaves 30 minutes before Backlash. Fans are filling the arena as we go backstage to the parking lot where a car pulls up. Shouting can be heard from inside the car until the back door flies open and out steps Chris Jericho! He pulls his bag out of the car and continues to insult the driver before slamming the door. Before he can go anywhere he's approached by interviewer Josh Matthews.

    Josh: "Excuse Chris if I could just have a moment."

    Jericho: "What do you want junior?"

    Josh: "Tonight you're in the SmackDown main event where you try to recapture the WWF Championship you lost at WrestleMania 18, only this time it's a No Holds Barred Match. What are your thoughts?"

    Jericho: "What are my thoughts? What kind of stupid question is that? My thoughts are the same as they always are. I'm going down to the ring tonight as the highlight of the night, and after I beat that ass clown Triple H.. I'll leave that ring once again the WWF Champion! So tell me Joshy, what are YOUR thoughts?"

    Josh: "Uh.. good luck tonight."

    Jericho: "That's what I thought."


    Chris brushes past Josh and continues inside as we go out to the arena where Michael Cole and Tazz are standing by.

    Cole: "Welcome everyone to Sunday Night Heat. We are less than a half hour away from Backlash but we have some action coming up to get you warmed up."

    Tazz: "Not just any action Cole, Cruiserweight action!"

    Cole: "That's right partner. The Best of 5 matches between Billy Kidman and the champ Tajiri begins now!"


    Cruiserweight Championship, Best of 5 Series (Match 1):
    Tajiri (c) (w/ Torrie Wilson) vs Billy Kidman


    End of the match:
    Tajri appears to be preparing the green mist! He then goes to spit the dangerous substance but Billy ducks and Torrie who's standing on the apron gets taken out by the mist. Tajiri is then nailed by a drop kick by Kidman. Billy then tries to get up but Tajiri attempts a Buzz saw kick however Billy counters and hits a super kick! Kidman goes up top and hits the shooting star press and covers:

    ..........One.........

    ..........Two.........

    ..........Three?.......

    ...............

    ...............

    YES!

    Winner via pin fall at 8:00 and 1-0 in the series Billy Kidman


    Cole: "Billy Kidman takes the crucial first match advantage in this best of 5 series but someone needs to check on Torrie Wilson."

    Tazz: "Yeah I've been misted before and that stuff burns so bad you wanna claw your own eyes out."


    Referee's show up and pour water all over Torrie's face then help her out of the arena. Tajiri finally recovers after the shooting star press and looks pissed. He looks everywhere for Torrie then storms up the ramp.


    ===NotoriousMEAT===


    We go backstage where Jonathan Coachman is standing by.

    Coachman: "Please welcome my guest at this time, Kurt Angle."

    Angle steps into view wearing a sleeveless hoodie.

    Coachman: "Kurt this week after your match was announced, WWF.com did an extensive piece on Mr. Perfect's career and his comeback this year. At one point he was quoted as saying, "For me to beat an athlete the caliber of Kurt Angle would really complete this comeback. It would prove not only to the world but to myself that I still am the best inside that ring. I have a lot of respect for Kurt Angle, but Sunday I need that win more than him, and I'll do anything to get it." What is your response to that?"

    Kurt scoffs.

    Angle: "I guess my first reaction is why would WWF.com waste their time interviewing Mr. Perfect instead of an Olympic Hero? They do realize it's 2002, not 1992 right? I can't really react to what you quoted from Mr. Perfect because all I heard was, "blah blah blah, I'm gonna lose to Kurt Angle, blah blah blah, I wish I was as good as him, blah blah blah, he's the best.", and that's all that matters. Mr. Perfect can say what he wants on the internet, but on Pay-Per-View, Kurt Angle is not only gonna prove that he's the best.. but that he's better than perfect."

    Kurt walks away and we go back out to ringside.

    JR: "Well ladies and gentlemen, just like all of you I cannot wait to see Kurt Angle and Mr. Perfect square off tonight. But the only way you can see it is on pay-per-view so you better hurry and order!"

    Inside the ring is William Regal. He's already made his entrance and is dressed to compete, but he has a microphone in one hand, and the other hand behind his back.

    Regal: "The first month of the Ric Flair RAW regime has been a disaster. A sad display of a man overwhelmed by power he is not equipped to handle. It all started when he unjustly stripped me of my European Championship and frankly it's all been down hill from there. Violence, chaos and more than one superstar taken away in an ambulance. This madness has to stop! What I have here.."

    Regal raises the hand behind his back and reveals a clipboard with papers.

    Regal: ".. is an official petition to remove Ric Flair from power not only on RAW but as WWF Co-Owner! Now I have already signed, and the second signature was from none other than the true owner of the World Wrestling Federation, Mr. McMahon. I am gonna have this sheet covered in signature's and by the time it's all said and done, Ric Flair will be just like the European Championship he stole from me. Nonexistent."

    William hands off the the microphone and sits his petition under the bottom rope. "Stand back! There's a Hurricane coming through!" Here comes the Hurricane! Regal's opponent tonight and coincidentally one of the superstars who has taken an ambulance ride this month.

    Regal stands proud in victory before retrieving his petition and exiting the ring. Next we're shown two clips on a divided screen. In the corner it says "Earlier tonight" and shows both Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Undertaker arriving to the arena. Austin pulls up in a pick truck and leaves it parked outside the arena. The Undertaker drives down into the arena parking on his motorcycle and drives right past the camera.

    JR: "Ya know I've seen Stone Cold and The Undertaker battle many times over the years, but I can't remember a time it was as intense and unpredictable as tonight's match."

    King: "Plus what they're fighting for JR. Which one is going to be the FIRST World Heavyweight Champion?"

    JR: "That is THE question that will be answered in tonight's main event."


    Again we go backstage. We're outside Ric Flair's office when a hand reaches into view and knocks on the door. Flair answers promptly by opening the door with a huge smile on his face. The camera pulls back and shows two men dressed in black, almost like security. One of them hands over a briefcase then the two men walk away. Flair stands in the doorway and opens the briefcase as the camera turns to get an over the shoulder looks. Inside the case, is the World Heavyweight Championship. The camera holds on the title for a moment before we slowly fade back out to the arena which is now packed to the rafters.

    JR: "You saw it ladies and gentlemen, the World Heavyweight Championship. That and so much more is on the line tonight at Backlash. We are just moments away from the first Pay-Per-View of the Brand Extension!"

    Sunday Night Heat slowly goes off the air with random highlights of action from both RAW and SmackDown over the last month.

    *** Video Package ***

    The PPV starts with a recap of the brand split and how tonight men from both shows will be trying to outshine each other to claim that their brand is superior. Brief recaps of The Undertaker vs Steve Austin feud and the Chris Jericho vs Triple H feud is shown before the narrator boldly proclaims that tonight many will feel the Backlash for their actions!

    *** Pyro ***

    The pyro explodes as the arena is filled with deafening sound of nearly 12 and a half thousand rabid fans that have filled the Kemper Memorial Arena to see WWF action.

    Cole: In front of a crowd of nearly 12 and a half thousand fans we welcome you to Backlash! Hello I'm Michael Cole and I'm joined by Tazz and we will be commentating on the SmackDown matches of tonight's show. Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler will be commentating on the Raw matches but they'll introduce themselves in due time. More importantly how pumped are you Tazz?

    Tazz: Cole I am so excited for Backlash and especially for the SmackDown matches! Triple H vs Chris Jericho in a no holds barred match for the WWF title it's gonna be incredible!

    Cole: Well the WWF title will be up for grabs in that match but right now the Intercontinental Championship is on the line in a triple threat match as Rob Van Dam defends against Booker T and Eddie Guerrero. We heard from all three men on the kick off show but who do you pick in this match Tazz?

    Tazz: Honestly Michael I think the champion Rob Van Dam will pull it out of the bag and retain his title.

    Cole: A bold prediction Tazz and you won't have to wait long to find out if you are right because that match is right now!

    Chimel: The following contest set for one fall is a triple threat match for the Intercontinental Championship!

    [​IMG]

    Booker T is out first and he comes out to a good pop from the crowd.

    Tazz: Booker's been on a bit of a roll lately but he would be champion all ready if that goof Goldust wasn't riding his coat tails!

    Cole: Goldust is just looking for his approval that's all.

    Tazz: Well he's looking in the wrong place.

    Booker poses in the ring as Eddie Guerrero's music hits. Eddie comes out cocky as ever to decent heat and patronises Booker in the ring by mocking him on the stage.

    Cole: Eddie is certainly the wildcard on the match, this guys so unpredictable.

    Tazz: It's that X factor which means he could steal the show and the title here tonight.

    Eddie gets in the rings and antagonises Booker on the turnbuckle as the referees have to hold him back from lashing out. RVD's music then hits and he comes out to the biggest reaction of the three as the people chant his name in time with the ring announcer.

    Tazz: There's the champ and the favourite right there!

    Cole: This is RVD's first defence of the title since being drafted to SmackDown so he's got a lot to prove here tonight.

    The three men circle each other as the referee holds the belt up and then rings the bell as we are underway!

    Intercontinental Championship
    Rob Van Dam (c) vs Eddie Guerrero vs Booker T


    Rob Van Dam wastes no time in getting things going as he charges at Guerrero and hits a drop kick. RVD then starts stamping on Eddie as the fans applaud his aggression but Booker cuts him off quickly with a spinning wheel kick that floors Van Dam. Booker then begins to unload on the champion hitting some heavy shots before Irish whipping him off the ropes but before he can hit a move Eddie sneaks up on him behind and hits a German suplex but before he can even contemplate covering Booker, Rob breaks up the pin with a spinning leg drop. RVD then begins to kick away at Guerrero with strike after strike and sends Eddie into the corner. He tries monkey flipping Eddie from the corner but Booker dropkicks RVD and he lands square on top of Guerrero. Booker then tries a side walk slam on RVD but Guerrero cuts him off and floors both men with a head scissors take down. Eddie then throws Rob over the top rope as he poses arrogantly to the fans. As he turns around Booker is back up and hits a spine buster and covers:

    ......One......

    .......Two......

    NO!

    Eddie easily powers out of the first serious cover of the match as Booker now goes straight to work on Guerrero and begins to strike him with some heavy hitting rights and lefts in the corner. With Eddie clearly stunned Booker goes to charge at him but Rob is back in the ring and monkey flips Booker. Van Dam then runs at Eddie and monkey flips him as well as with both men down RVD does his signature taunt as the crowd chant along with him. Rob then goes to give Eddie a spin kick but he ducks and pushes the ECW alumnus straight into Booker and taunts both men while smirking at the fans. Eddie's smug look soon turns that of concerns as Booker and RVD give him a double super kick which sends him tumbling to the outside. Booker then tries a super kick to Van Dam but he ducks and spring boards off the ropes and hits a spring board spin kick of his own to a great ovation from the fans and covers:

    .........One........

    .........Two........

    NO!

    Now it's Booker's turn to show some resiliency and he proves that he's a contender in this match as he powers out. Van Dam goes for another kick but Booker catches him with a flying fore arm as the announcers note that Eddie has recovered but is waiting craftily on the outside while Van Dam and Booker continue to go back and forth. Booker is still in control and Irish whips RVD and on the rebound hits a flapjack but only gets a two off the cover. Booker tries to go up top but RVD throws him off and Booker lands awkwardly on his back. Rob then hits a face buster and follows it up with a German suplex. Rob goes to the apron but Eddie pulls him off and Rob's face bounces off the apron and then again on the floor on his way down. Eddie then hits a slingshot senton to Booker in the ring and covers:

    ........One.......

    ........Two.......

    .............T-NO!............

    Rob Van Dam hits a slingshot guillotine leg drop back into the ring and breaks up the pin. Eddie then recovers quickly and hit an exploder suplex but Booker catches him and turns it into a sidewalk slam but before he can cover Eddie hits a tilt a whirl back breaker on Booker that makes him audibly curse as the referee goes to check on him. Booker rolls out of the ring in pain as Eddie begins to execute some of his trademark offence on Rob. First a number of European upper cuts rock Van Dam and then a belly to back suplex completely floors him. Eddie then locks in the STF!

    .....Booker tries to crawl to the ropes.......

    .......Slowly getting closer........

    .........Almost there.........

    .........But Eddie drags him back into the centre of the ring and synchs it in even tighter.........

    .......Booker's about to tap........

    NO!

    Rob Van Dam comes in and breaks up the submission with a rolling thunder and covers:

    ........One.........

    .........Two.........

    .........Th-NO!........

    Booker recovers and breaks up the pin and hits a double clotheslines which Eddie ducks but RVD takes the brunt of. Both men go up top and hit a double drop kick that almost goes seriously wrong as Van Dam is sent to the outside.
    Booker then hits a Harlem side kick and catches Eddie as he falls and hits a DDT! Eddie's down and after a brutal looking knee drop he may be out of it completely as he rolls to the outside. However RVD then springboards back in with a cross body and covers:

    ........One.......

    .........Two.......

    .........Thr-NO!........

    Booker barley kicks out as Van Dam then immediately chucks him to them outside on top of Eddie which leaves both men floored on the outside. RVD then goes to the outside and drapes both men over the barricade and goes up top and poses before hitting a ridiculous double guillotine leg drop that wipes out all three men. Eventually Guerrero recovers first and whips Rob straight into the steps before tossing Booker into the ring and then grabbing a chair. In the ring Booker knocks the chair right out of Guerrero's hands and goes for the axe kick but Eddie counters it and lifts Booker up for a spine wrenching power bomb. Eddie then nails Booker square on the head with the steel chair and covers:

    ..........One........

    ...........Two.........

    ............Thre-NO!..........

    Rob Van Dam comes back in with a split legged moonsault that takes out both men and he covers Eddie:

    .........One..........

    ..........Two...........

    NO!

    Rob then gives covering Booker a go:

    ..........One..........

    ..........Two..........

    NO!

    Booker kicks out as RVD slumps to the mat in exhaustion. Eddie then recove and gets the steel chair before clocking both Booker and Rob Van Dam with the chair and then clocks Booker again which sends him to the outside. Eddie then again hits 'Mr Thursday Night' with the chair before briefly posing and hitting the three amigos without any problem and then teases a fourth but instead hits a brain buster onto the chair. He covers:

    ...........One...........

    ...........Two...........

    ...........Three?..........

    ................

    NO!

    Booker dives back in the ring and saves the Intercontinental Title! Booker then lines up both men and does a spinaroonie before hitting a double axe kick and covers Eddie:

    ..........One..........

    ..........Two..........

    ...........Three?..........

    ...............

    NO!

    Guerrero kicks out to the surprise of the crowd as Rob is still out from that brutal brain buster onto the chair (which smashed on impact). Booker then tries for the Book-end but Guerrero counters and goes behind and tries a roll up but Booker isn't having any of it and slams Eddie down with great force. Booker then goes up top and hits a beautiful Harlem Hangover and covers:

    ..........One.........

    ..........Two.........

    ...........Three?...........

    ..............

    ..............

    NO!

    How the hell is RVD back up as he breaks up the pin to save his title yet again! Rob then hits Booker with a chair he's now got and follows with a Van Daminator. Rob goes up top but so does Eddie on the other turnbuckle. Rob signals for them to jump and Eddie does but RVD stays put. That turned out to be a wise decision as Booker then catches Eddie with a Book-End. Before he gets a chance to recover Rob nails him with a huge spin kick. He sets both men in the corner and puts a chair in their face and hits a Shane O Mad style dropkick to both men. Rob then covers Booker:

    ..........One.........

    ...........Two.........

    ............Three?............

    ...............

    ...............

    ...............

    NO!

    Cole explodes with emotion on commentary as somehow someway Booker manages to kick out. Before RVD can continue the onslaught Guerrero comes in and tosses Rob out of the ring and nails Booker with the brain buster! Eddie then god up top and hits the frog splash and covers:

    ...........One.........

    ...........Two.........

    ...........Three?..........

    ...............

    ...............

    ................

    NO!

    GOLDUST is in and breaks up the pin and throws Eddie to the outside! Booker gets to his feet and sees what Goldust did and stares him down. Before he can respond further Eddie tries to hit Goldust with a chair but he ducks and HITS BOOKER! RVD is up top and hits a missile drop kick to Goldust before he can realise his mistake and then tries for the frog splash on Booker but Eddie hits him with the chair and this sends him to the outside and he lands head first on the barricade. Booker begins to rise but Eddie whallops him with another chair shot and goes up top. He hits the frog splash and crawls over for the cover:

    ...........One.........

    ...........Two.........

    ...........Three?...........

    ...............

    ...............

    ...............

    ...............

    YES!

    Winner at 14:48 via pinfall and new Intercontinental Champion Eddie Guerrero!
    Eddie snatches the belt away from the referee as RVD is still none the wiser and laid out on the outside.

    Cole: What a match and a new champion!

    Tazz: Well one way or another Eddie Guerreo is your new Intercontinental Champion!

    Back in the ring Booker T and Goldust are both back in the ring and Goldust tries to apologise to Booker but he shoves him to the mat and storms off.

    Cole: You gotta feel for Booker here, Goldust kinda cost him this match.

    Tazz: Yep the way he lost this match must really suck for Booker T.

    As Goldust follows Booker T up the ring Rob Van Dam gets up and speaks with the referee who informs him of the loss. RVD kicks the barricade and starts waking out.

    Tazz: Well speaking of tough losses, Rob Van Dam lost this match and his title without even being pinned!

    Cole: I'm sure RVD has a lot more in store for Eddie Guerrero but right now lets hand over to the Raw announce team of Jim Ross and Jerry 'The King' Lawler


    ===NotoriousMEAT===


    JR: "Good evening everybody I'm Jim Ross alongside my broadcast partner as always, Jerry "The King" Lawler."

    King: "I hope too many people didn't turn off their TV's when they saw SmackDown opening up the pay-per- view!"


    We go backstage. We see Ric Flair in his office on the phone.

    JR: "It was definitely a very interesting kick off for the SmackDown brand.. hold on here."

    Flair hangs up his phone as the camera widens out. We see Maven standing near Ric. The former Hardcore Champion looks distraught.

    Flair: "Well that was Vince. It's done."

    Maven: "I still don't understand."

    Flair: "It's nothing personal Maven. You're a great young talent with a bright future, but that future is on SmackDown. I actually like you, but after everything that happened last week.. hell everything thats happened over the last month. RAW isn't the place for you. The trade was made official when I hung up that phone. I hope you understand."


    Flair extends his hand and Maven takes it.

    Maven: "Of course. Thank you Mr. Flair. I appreciate the opportunity you gave me and I'm excited for a new beginning on SmackDown."

    Flair: "I'm excited for you. It should be.."

    Maven steps back from Flair and brings his fists up like he's ready to fight.

    Flair: "Maven?.. what?"

    Ric turns around and there we see Raven. He's standing right behind Flair with the Hardcore Championship he took from Maven on RAW over his shoulder.

    Flair: "This isn't the place for a rematch Raven."

    Raven: "Heh, your boy doesn't want a rematch. That's why you're sending him to SmackDown where he'll be safe."


    Raven looks towards Maven.

    Raven: "You were right to thank him."

    Flair: "What the hell do you want? Your match is next. Ya know, the match you wanted so damn bad?"

    Raven: "Oh I know, but I have a little problem with this match."

    Flair: "You do, do you?"

    Raven: "This is a unification match for the United States Championship.. as well as the Hardcore Championship. This match should be.. Hardcore. I want no disqualifications. No countouts. No rules."


    The fans actually pop for the hardcore proposal. Flair seems agitated. Does Raven have a point?

    Flair: "...I guess that's.. fair. Fine. You got your hardcore match. Now get outta here."

    Raven smirks and leaves.

    JR: "Well folks that's quite the development. Our big unification match is now officially a hardcore match!"

    King: "Good! Now that pretty boy Edge is gonna get the extreme butt whipping he deserves!"

    JR: "It's up next everybody.."


    [​IMG]

    JR: "Edge has been riding a wave of momentum. In fact, he hasn't lost since the brand extension! In the main event of RAW two weeks ago he defeated Kurt Angle and his opponent tonight Raven to recapture the United States Championship that was vacated last November. Raven wasn't the superstar pinned in that match and wanted another shot. He jumped Maven last week taking advantage of the Hardcore Championship's 24/7 rule to become the new Hardcore Champion. This of course came moments after Ric Flair announced this unification match for Backlash. That brings us to tonight. Two men are walking in as champion but only one will be leaving the same way."

    The sounds of birds crowing follow as soon as JR stops talking. Raven's music kicks in and shortly after the Hardcore Champion comes through the curtain pushing a shopping cart full of weapons. A trashcan full of kendo sticks, brooms and what looks like a crutch. There's street signs, a traffic cone and actually a tire under neath the cart. The cart is stuff with other miscellaneous weapons and on top of them all lays the Hardcore Championship. Raven pushes the cart down to ring side before he grabs the title and throws it into the ring. Then he grabs the trash can and tosses it over the top rope spilling it's contents in the ring. He grabs the tire and slides it into the ring before leaving the rest of the cart and rolling into the ring. He picks up the Hardcore Championship and goes to the far corner. Raven drops to a seated position with the title over his legs. Now he waits.

    "You think you know me.." the fans let out a roar of cheers as Edge comes running into view through smoke shooting out of the stage. The young champion is hyped and ready to defend his championship. As he starts down the ramp he removes his sunglasses and intently looks towards the ring. He sees Raven, and the weapons. Raven motions for Edge to come on down. Edge removes his coat as he continues down the ramp and even unfastens the United States Championship from around his waist. He slides into the ring and stops in the middle. From the mat Edge stares at Raven who is still seated in the corner staring back. Edge gets to his feet and steps back towards the opposite corner.

    Lilian: "The following contest is a hardcore match scheduled for one fall, and is a unification match for the United States and Hardcore Championships! Introducing first, the Hardcore Champion. From the Bowery, Raven!"

    Raven puts the Hardcore Championship in his mouth, then reaches up and grabs the top rope. He pulls himself up to his feet then takes the Hardcore Championship and hands it over to the referee.

    Lilian: "And his opponent, from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The United States Champion.. Edge!"

    The fans pop again for Edge as he holds up his U.S. Title. He too hands the championship over to the ref who stands in the middle of the ring and holds up both titles, showing everyone what's on the line. The referee hands the titles off to Lillian as she exits the ring then calls for the bell.

    "Never Gonna Stop" by Rob Zombie blares through the arena as the fans celebrate the victory with Edge. The referee hands him both the United States and Hardcore Championships and Edge holds them both up high as the ref raises his arm. We're shown a replay with highlights from the match concluding with Edge hitting Edgecution for the win. When the highlights end we see Edge now standing in the corner. He again holds up both titles for all the crowd to see, until he's suddenly low blowed from behind! Edge falls back down to the mat and we see Raven has recovered and is none too pleased about his loss. He starts stomping down at Edge who is defenseless. Raven slowly picks Edge to his feet, the whole time we can hear Raven saying, "You're nothing Edge, you're nothing." until he finally has him up. Raven fits Edge's head under his arm. Looks like he wants to hit another Ravenflow DDT. The fans are starting to cheer though. This should have been a warning sign for Raven, but he pays it no mind. But before he can drop Edge.. Tommy Dreamer slides into the ring behind Raven and stands up right behind him. Without hesitation, Tommy cracks Raven in the back with a kendo stick! Raven drops Edge and stumbles forward. His back is arched as he slowly turns to see Dreamer, and he looks like he's seen a ghost. Tommy lunges forward and cracks Raven right between the eyes with the kendo stick which drops Raven to the mat. The fans roar for Dreamer as he throws his arms out screams while he poses.

    King: "Could somebody tell me why the hell Tommy Dreamer is sticking his nose in RAW business!?"

    JR: "I think it's pretty obvious King! Ric Flair made the Maven trade right before this match, and if I was a betting man I'd say that trade was for Tommy Dreamer!"


    Tommy turns to see Raven slowly pulling himself up back to his feet with the ropes. There's now a trickle of blood moving down his head. He looks Dreamer dead in the eyes and pushes away from the ropes and moves towards Dreamer ready to fight. Before either man can make a move though... SPEAR! Edge levels Raven with a sudden Spear! Right out of the Spear, Edge's attention shoots towards Dreamer, who drops the Kendo Stick. Edge gets to his feet, giving a nod to Dreamer who gives a nod in return. Edge picks up both his championships and exits the ring as his music begins to play again. Dreamer rolls out of the ring and exits through the crowd.

    Backstage Ric Flair is sitting watching the show on a monitor in his office. He's then interrupted as someone walks in.....

    McMahon: Hello Mr Flair!

    Flair: Vince.......

    McMahon: Ya know Ric I'm really impressed with your performance on Raw. I honestly didn't think someone could run a wresting show tags badly! But kudos to you Ric you've really topped yourself on this one.

    Flair: Woah, hold up their Vince. I admit that Raw may be a very chaotic but that makes it must see TV! Anyway my Raw guys would kick the asses of your SmackDown guys any time, any place!

    McMahon: Really? Well the tag team titles are about to come to SmackDown after the APA dismantle you pathetic champions Billy and Chuck!

    Flair: Well why don't we just watch and see.

    Flair and Vince but stare at the monitor as the music of the APA hits.

    Cole: Hello again ladies and gentleman, myself and Tazz will be calling this inter-promotional matchup and here comes the SmackDown challengers the APA.

    Tazz: Bradshaw and Faarooq better hope they win this match because they're gonna be in store for a huge punishment from Mr McMahon if they don't take home the gold.

    As the APA warm up in the ring the music of Billy and Chuck hits and they come out with Rico by their side.

    Cole: I'm sure Ric Flair isn't gonna be a happy man tonight when these two loose the tag titles.

    Tazz: Ya got that right Michael. It's SmackDown all the way with this one!

    Billy and Chuck get in the ring and the referee holds the belts up as Billy and Faarooq get onto the apron.

    [​IMG]

    WWF TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP:
    Billy and Chuck (c) (with Rico) vs The APA

    Bradshaw wastes no time with pleasantries and batters Chuck consecutive stiff shots which send the champ straight back into his own corner where he quickly makes the tag to Billy and bails from the ring. Billy tries his luck and goes for a drop kick but Bradshaw just bats him away straight into the ropes and on the rebound hits a big boot that turns Billy almost inside out to a big pop from the fans. Bradshaw then hits a few more big strikes really rocking the tag team veteran before finishing his offence off with a brutal swinging neck breaker that almost rips Billy's neck off with the sheer impact of the move alone. Bradshaw then drags Billy over to his corner and tags in Faarooq and they hit a double back suplex and Faarooq covers!

    ..........One.........

    ..........Two..........

    NO!

    Billy kicks out just after two! Faarooq continues where Bradshaw left off in giving Billy some stiff offence that sends him reeling. Tazz points out that the APA have been teaming together for three years but Billy was a nine time tag team champion with three different partners. Finally the tide turns in the match as when Faarooq attempts a short arm clothesline Bill ducks and manages to tag in Chuck who takes out Faarooq almost instantly with a huge discus elbow smash that sends Faarooq spinning around and straight to the apron. From here Rico sneak attacks him before Chuck catapults him back in and hits a shoulder block. Next Chuck tags in Billy and they hit a double back breaker and Billy quickly covers...

    ..........One.........

    ..........Two..........

    NO!

    Faarooq won't be beaten that easily as he powers out of the pinning predicament. The Acolyte tries to get some momentum going with a few elbow smashes but this floury is quickly quashes by a side slam that down Faarooq while Billy poses to the fans. This gives Faarooq another opening which he takes full advantage of and charges Billy and sends both men tumbling to the floor outside.

    .........One.........

    .........Two.........

    Both men briefly lie motionless as Bradshaw goes over to help his partner but is cut off by Rico and Chuck.

    ........Three......

    .........Four........

    Billy's back up and he smashes the head of Faarooq right into the barricade as Bradshaw head butts Rico only to be blindsided by Chuck.

    ..........Five.......

    ..........Six.........

    The beating continues as Billy sends Faarooq head first into the steel steps and heads back into the ring. Meanwhile Chuck and Bradshaw appear to be exchanging some heavy shots.

    .........Seven.......

    .........Eight........

    Chuck rams Bradshaw's head right into the ring post which possibly concussed him as Faarooq tries to crawl back into the ring.

    .........Nine..........

    NO!

    Faarooq makes it back into the ring in the nick of time but Billy strikes back straight away and hits a fall away slam and covers!

    ........One.......

    ........Two.......

    ........Th-NO!.......

    Again Faarooq shows his veteran instincts by kicking out of one of Billy's signature moves as Bradshaw is out cold still on the outside with the hatch in dire straights for the APA. Billy tags in Chuck and they hit a double vertical suplex before Chuck hits an uppercut and then heads up top to deliver a devastating top rope shoulder block. Instead of going for the cover Chuck lock in the Padlock (an inverted Boston Crab)

    .......Chuck's wrenching back........

    ........Faarooq's stuck in the middle of the ring.........

    .........Slowly getting closer to the ropes..........

    ..........Nearly there.........

    ...........Almost got it...........

    Faarooq reaches the ropes and forces the hold to break as Chuck takes full advantage of the five count. Chuck then tries a Samoan drop but Faarooq counters and hits some offence of his own. First there's a drop kick and this is followed by a short arm clothesline but the pile driver is countered into a back body drop. As Faarooq is recovering Chuck signals for the super kick and as soon as he gets up he's drilled with it! Chuck covers...

    ...........One..........

    ...........Two.........

    ............Thr-NO!..........

    Bradshaw is back in the ring and has recovered. He hits a sick spine buster on Chuck before retuning to his own corner. He then starts hitting the turnbuckle and encourages the crowd to get behind Faarooq as he crawls over and gets the hot tag. Bradshaw hits a boot but then the referee sends him out of the ring as he didn't see the tag due to a distraction by Rico. Bradshaw sees this and enraged dashes outside and starts blindly punching down Rico as Chuck tags in Billy. Chuck goes outside to help his manager as Billy hits an impressive military press slam follows by a cutter. Back on the outside Bradshaw gets the advantage and rams both Rico and Chuck into the barricade as Billy hits the fame-asser on Faarooq and covers!

    ..........One.........

    ...........Two..........

    ...........Three?..........

    NO!

    Again Bradshaw saves his partner and with Chuck and Rico dealt with Faarooq makes the hot tag to Bradshaw! The Texan comes in like a house of fire hitting Billy with a big boot, a fall away slam and then another back shattering spine buster. He then delivers a ridiculous clothesline from hell and covers....

    .........One.........

    .........Two.........

    .........Three?.......

    ...............

    NO!

    Chuck comes in and breaks it up but he gets a boot for his troubles. Faarooq then signals that he wants to be tagged in and so he gets his wish as the APA set up to double power bomb Billy. However with the referee distracted by Rico Chuck comes in and gives a double low blow before throwing Bradshaw to the outside and starts to punch him. Billy takes advantage and hits a fame-asser on Faarooq and covers as Rico directs the referee back to the match....

    .........One.........

    ..........Two.........

    ..........Three?........

    .............

    .............

    .............

    YES!​


    Winners at 9:31 via pinfall and still WWF tag team champions, Billy and Chuck!


    Cole: I don't believe it!

    Tazz: The APA were robbed!

    Billy and Chuck celebrate down the ramp as Bradshaw consoles his partner in the ring following the loss.

    Cole: Raw just got one up on SmackDown and it was thanks to the distraction by Rico.

    We then get a shot backstage of Ric Flair wooing in the face of McMahon who promptly storms out of the office.

    Tazz: The APA put on one hell of an effort but the numbers game was just too much for anyone to handle.

    Cole: Hopefully the APA will get another shot at the tag team titles in the near future but regardless we now head to the back where Josh Matthews is standing by with Jeff Hardy!

    We cut backstage where Josh is in the interview position.

    Josh: Ladies and gentleman my guest at this time, Jeff Hardy.

    Hardy comes in jumping up and down and getting warmed up for his upcoming match.

    Josh: Tonight Jeff you take on your toughest challenge to date in the form of an undefeated monster who's already put out the Rock. How confident can you feel heading into this match?

    Jeff: Josh..... It really doesn't matter how many wins Brock has had or who he's taken out, how many NCAA titles he's won or how he's bigger, stronger, taller, more athletic than me. That stuff ain't important. This match is about risk and the fact that I'm literally willing to do anything to beat this man. I will break my back, my neck every bone in my freaking body to make sure I beat you Brock. I am extreme, I am an enigma and I will not stop until your down an d out Lesnar.

    Hardy walks off as we head to ringside and Brock Lesnar's music hits.

    Tazz: Here comes the pain!

    Cole: Brock Lesnar with Paul Heyman by his side has looked so impressive in recent weeks and has yet to be bested in a WWF ring.

    Heyman and Brock get in the ring as Heyman grab a mic.

    Heyman: Ladies and gentlemen my name is Paul Heyman and I am the appointed advocate for the next big thing, the beast, BROCK LESNAR! Tonight marks a new era in the world of pay per view and that is the Brock Lesnar era. I guarantee you by the time Backlash 2003 rolls around this minster that you see before you will be WWE Champion, having headlined WrestleMania and be known the world over as the greatest athlete of his generation or any other. With that being said Jeff Hardy you are the first stepping stone on the path to greatness so get out here and lets get this over with!

    Hardy's music plays and he starts to sprint to the ring!

    Cole: Looks like we are wasting no time here!

    Tazz: Hardy is pumped and ready to take on the beast!

    Hardy jumps in the ring as the bell sounds.

    The Beast vs The Enigma:
    Brock Lesnar (with Paul Heyman) vs Jeff Hardy


    Hardy comes in and knocks Lesnar straight into the corner as soon as the bell rings and hits him with a drop kick there but this does not down the big man. He charges again for a one man poetry in mention but Brock catches him and throws him like weighed as much as a small child all the way across the ring so that he hits the turnbuckle in the opposing corner. Brock then charges him and crushes Jeff's ribs with a running shoulder tackle that send the enigma crumpling down to the canvas. Heyman screams at Brock to do more damage and Brock repeatedly knees Hardy in the ribs almost to the point at which the referee has to disqualify 'The Next Big Thing'. Lesnar regains control and hits a gut buster and follows it up with a belly to back suplex that causes Hardy to land right on his stomach as he clutches his ribs again. Brock covers...

    .........One........

    ..........Two........

    NO!

    Hardy manages to kick out but that doesn't seem to phase Brock in the slightest as he gets right back to work as he bowls over Jeff with a stiff clothesline. Brock hits a power slam followed by a snap suplex in quick succession and then places Hardy in the corner and once again seems to show his frustration as he knees and shoulder blocks Hardy again and again and again until the referee threatens to call for the bell. Heyman claps as Brock poses much to the fans chagrin. Hardy seems to be stumbling up to his dee t as Brock goes for a punch but Hardy ducks and tries to rebound off the ropes with a move of his own but Brock catches him and delivers an overhead belly to belly suplex and covers.....

    ..........One........

    ..........Two........

    ..........Th-NO!.......

    Brock cannot believe that Hardy kickes out of that. Heyman tells Lesnar to finish it and he goes for a power bomb but Hardy counters it into a hurricanrana that sends Brock to the outside! Hardy then looks at the cored and hits a plancha but Brock catches him!

    ........One.......

    Lesnar get Hardy and rams him into the ring post while still maintaining his grip.

    ..........Two........

    Lesnar then rams Hardy into the barricade but still holds onto his grip.

    .......Three......

    Heyman then nods as Brock just slams Hardy into the steps before he gets back in the ring.

    ........Four.......

    ........Five........

    ........Six.........

    .........Seven......

    Lesnar's posing in the ring as though he's won the match as Hardy begins to stir.

    .........Eight.......

    .........Nine.......

    Hardy spring boards right back into the ring to a great pop but immediately gets caught by Brock who just plants him almost through the canvas with a tremendous power bomb. He covers:

    .........One.........

    .........Two.........

    ..........Three?.........

    ...............

    NO!

    Again no joy for Lesnar as Hardy finds away to kick out of the brutal power bomb. Lesnar is pissed now and goes insane on the ribs of Hardy as Cole screams that Jeff could suffer internal damage from such a severe beat down at the hands of Brock Lesnar. Lesnar then gets Hardy up and hits a beautiful dragon suplex but elects not to cover but to work over the ribs a little more. Brock then locks in a bear hug!

    ..........Hardy's ribs are being crushed...........

    ...........There's nowhere to go...........

    ...........Hardy elbows Brock in the face a few times but Brock just applies the hold tighter..........

    ............Surely he's gonna tap........

    NO!

    Hardy counters and hits a beautiful tilt a whirl DDT! Hardy then goes up top and hits a whisper in the wind but this doesn't even take Brock off his feet! He goes for another big dive but Brock catches him and hits a fall away slam. Brock covers.....

    ..........One.........

    ...........Two..........

    ............Three?..........

    ...............

    ...............

    NO!

    Hardy again defies the odds and kicks out of the move! Brock is screaming a the referee as Paul is trying to calm him down. He regains his focus and Heyman instructs him to go for the F-5. Brock has Hardy up on his shoulders and goes for the F-5 but Jeff blocks it and hits the Twist of Fate! He covers:

    .........One........

    WHAT?

    Brock kicks out of the twist of fate at one! Hardy cannot believe his eyes and he hits another one which downs Brock long enough for him to go up top and hit the swanton bomb! The cover:

    .........One.........

    ..........Two.........

    ..........Three?..........

    ...............

    ...............

    NO!

    Brock just gets the shoulder up! Hardy knows he has this match in hand and he goes up top for another swanton bomb. He dives but Brock catches him! He hits the F-5 and covers!

    .........One.........

    ..........Two.........

    ..........Three?.........

    ...............

    ...............

    ...............

    YES!

    Winner via pinfall at 7:50, Brock Lesnar

    Lesnar simply stands over Hardy as Heyman gets in the ring and congratulates his client.

    Cole: Another dominating win for Brock Lesnar. It was a gutsy performance by Jeff Hardy but Brock was just at a different level.

    Tazz: Agreed. I think Hardy needs some help out here.

    Cole: Well right now we are handing you back to my colleagues from Raw, Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler.

    Hardy is being attended to in the ring by medics as we switch to the Raw side of things.


    ===NotoriousMEAT===


    JR: "Coming up next on the RAW side of things, simply put, is a war.

    [​IMG]

    JR: "The Dudley clan and the New World Order have been at each other's throats since the brand extension. The Dudleyz believe the WWF is their house and they are the dominate family. But the nWo is looking to take over and mark their territory. Only one group will come out of this collision on top of the mountain."

    King: "Do these guys really think they can beat the nWo?"

    JR: "I believe they do King. Before all hell breaks loose, let's take a look at everything that's led up to this battle."


    A brief video package airs highlighting the brawls and matches between the two groups over the last month. At the end of the video we hear the sound of pyro falling. We cut back to the arena in time to see the pyro hit the stage which leads to even more pyro errupting from the stage. The fans come to their feet and Stacy Keibler is the firs to appear on the stage. The Duchess of Dudleyville stands surrounded by smoke with a grin on her face. She looks back to the curtain, then down the ramp. She points at the ring. This brings out the Dudleyz. Spike leads the way. Bubba Ray and D-Von follow right behind him. There's no shouting or getting hyped. The Dudleyz are here for a fight. They march down the ramp and enter the ring. Bubba is the only one to climb up in a corner. He looks out at the crowd, but doens't pose or throw up the 3D hand sign. But he nods. The Dudleyz are ready. The screen turns grey. The visuale of Bubba of standing on the corner gets fuzzy then completely cuts out as the nWo's music begins to play. The camera's pan over towards the stage. The treacherous trio has arrived. We're looking at the stage waiting for the nWo to come out.

    JR: "Hey! Hold on.. wait they're here! The nWo!"

    Camera's catch the nWo approaching the ring from behind the Dudleyz. They must have come through the crowd and Kevin Nash reaches into the ring grabbing Spike Dudley by the ankles. He yanks and Spike falls. Nash drags Spike out of the ring as Bubba and D-Von turn to see Scott Hall and X-Pac and the brawl is on. Hall and Bubba start throwing hands but X-Pac catches D-Von with a spin kick that floors him. Nash has throws Spike into the time keepers area causing Lillian Garcia and crew to scatter. Stacy fleas the scene and finally stops half way up the ramp where she watches from a safe distance. D-Von is seated in a corner where X-Pac is stomping him in the gut. Bubba Ray and Scott Hall brawl near the opposite corner. Outside Kevin Nash goes to where he threw Spike, but the little Dudley gets to his feet and swings something towards Nash. It's the ring bell! But the big man's reflexes may be a little quicker than Spike gave him credit for as he reaches out nad grabs the bell in mid-swing. He yanks it away from Spike and throws it down. Spike leaps up to throw a punch, but it doesn't phase Nash. He grabs Spike by his head. Nash takes one big step back then turns and slings Spike towards the nearby ring steps. Spike flies and his lower back and legs collide into the steel stairs. Spike lands on the side of his head and shoulder and lays almost motionless.

    Bubba clotheslines Scott Hall out of the ring and turns towards where X-Pac is beating on D-Von. From behind Bubba grabs Pac by the shoulders and throws him back. Bubba check on D-Von but stands guard, ready to fight. Nash steps up on the apron near the corner where X-Pac was thrown. The referee finally tries to restore order and stands in the middle of the ring between the two groups. Hall gets to his feet and climbs up on the apron in the corner with Nash. Bubba motions for D-Von to get out of the ring. Looks like things are gonna officially get underway.


    The bell rings but before Lilian can even announce the nWo as the winners, X-Pac now enters the ring with a steel chair of his own and starts beating down on D-Von. Scott Hall eventually rolls in with his chair and gets in some shots on Bubba who is still down from the low blow. Nash slowly gets to his feet with a giant smile on his face. He reaches down and again pulls Spike up by his hair. He drags him towards the ropes and throws him out of the ring through the top and middle ropes. The ref is pulling on Scott Hall trying to get him to stop, but Nash steps in and grabs the ref by the collar of his shirt and throws him down to the ground. He slaps Hall on the back and says something that makes him stop swining the chair and exit the ring. He reaches under the ring and of course pulls out a can of spray paint. Hall rolls back into the ring as Nash and X-Pac throw D-Von out of the ring. Bubba is still down, and it looks like the nWo is gonna mark him. X-Pac looks over and see's Stacy checking on Spike. He points her out to the other two and they all start chuckling. X-Pac and Hall exit the ring and approach Stacy who doesn't notice until she's already surrounded. She stands up and his shaking her head. Hall and Nash just smile as they step closer, but Stacy suddenly slaps Scott Hall! Then X-Pac! The fans pop as Stacy turns to run up the ramp, but Hall quickly reaches out and grabs her by the hair. Stacy just screams, "No! No! Please no!" as Hall lifts her over his shoulder and takes her to the ring. He pusher her under the bottom rope into the ring and once she's free she starts kicking out at Hall and Pac but they back away. Stacy gets to her feet and turns to run, but his taken down by a big boot from Kevin Nash! The fans are outraged! JR crucifies the nWo for attacking Stacy and Lawler can't even defend their actions. Nash kicks Bubba out of the ring as X-Pac rolls Stacy over to his stomach. Scott Hall shakes the can before he bends over and sprays "nWo" across Stacy's back in black spray paint. The fans go from angry to disgusted as a somber feeling takes over the arena. The nWo raise their arms as their music begins to play. We see a replay of the ending sequence of the match, then Stacy slapping the nWo but eventually being caught a spray painted. The nWo are now up on the stage. Nash is walking towards the curtain while Hall and X-Pac jawjack with fans and pose. The referee checks on Stacy as Spike enters the ring. Other referee's and backstage officials check on Bubba and D-Von.

    JR: "That was hard to watch and honestly goes beyond what is supposed to happen inside the ring. I know ownership and daily operations are new waters for Ric Flair, but if he doesn't get things under control there's no telling how much worse things could get on RAW."

    King: "I think Stacy needs my help, I'm gonna go check on her JR. She may need mouth to mouth."

    JR: "Will you stop!? What happened to that young lady is terrible."


    Everyone is out of the ring and on their feet. Spike carries Stacy up the ramp and the Bubba and D-Von follow behind with assitance from referees. The camera goes over to JR and King as the fans cheer the Dudleyz on.

    JR: "Well ladies and gentlemen this match was billed as a war and it certainly lived up to the billing. But now we move past the chaos onto a bonafied dream match."

    King: "You can call it that, but it's gonna be a nightmare for Mr. Not So Perfect."


    [​IMG]

    JR: "Kurt Angle's first month on the RAW brand hasn't exactly gone as he would have liked. He was excluded from the World Heavyweight Championship picture and then came up in short in his quest for the newly reinstated United States Championship. He blames Mr. Perfect for getting in his head as these two have gone back and forth with each other for weeks."

    King: "Perfect is a cranky loser and he's so jealous of Kurt's success that he want's to pull him down to his level of failure!"

    JR: "You can be sure that if you ask either of these men who's the best wrestler, they'd each choose themselves. Now it's time to find out who's right."


    The iconic tune of Mr. Perfect begins to play on the fans come to their feet. The audience welcomes Perfect with respect and appreciation as he enters the ring. Perfect climbs up into the corner facing the hard camera and pulls the white towel off his shoulder and throws it up around his back and catches it in the air with his other because ya know, he's perfect. He holds both his arms up in the air, before hopping down out of the corner. Mr. Perfect walks over to his corner, giving a nod to the referee as he gives instructions. It's then that Perfect's music fades away and is soon followed by the Kurt Angle's triumphant theme. Angle makes his way out onto the stage, his gold medal's proudly hanging around his neck. He stops fro a moment to throw his arms up in the air which is emphasized with three blasts of red, white and blue pyro. Angle continues down the ramp and eventually enters the ring. Normally Angle would spin around and do a little more showing off, but he's ready to get the match started. He's ready to compete. Angle kisses his gold medals then removes them and hands them off to the referee. He backs into his corner and lower's his stance a bit as he waits for the bell.

    Kurt keeps the submission applied for a few moments after the bell, eventually throwing Mr. Perfect's leg down. He walks away and starts shouting, "I'm the best! I'm the best!". He then demands the referee raise his hand in victory. Kurt then stands over Perfect as the referee check on him. He laughs, then steps over him to exit the ring.

    JR: "Like him or hate him folks, Kurt Angle did indeed prove that he was the best here tonight."

    King: "I've been telling you that for weeks JR! You need to start listening to me. Kurt Angle is not only the best wrestler in the world, he's perfect!"


    The referee helps Perfect out of the ring and Perfect leans on him now that he's at the point where he can't put any pressure on the bad leg. The referee helps Perfect out of the arena as the fans give him a standing ovation.

    JR: "A great show of respect tonight from our fans for Mr. Perfect who has certainly earned it."

    King: "It's easier for these people to love a loser JR, because he's just like them!"

    JR: "Oh stop. Good thing we're sending things back over to SmackDown, because I've had just about all I can stand of you right now King."

    *** Video Package ***

    We see highlights of Storm and Christian's scathing promos on America in recent weeks as well as their respective victories over the Big Show. Storm and Christian are then shown costing Hulk Hogan his #1 contenders match against Chris Jericho and the team officially christening themselves the UnAmericans. Then the promo moves from the darker to a more hopeful tone as Hogan puts over America and insults Storm and Christian. We then cut between shots of the two teams before the final shot of the four men with a resounding USA chant.

    *** End Video Package ***


    Backstage Mean Gene Okerlund is standing by with a huge smile on his face.

    Gene: Ladies and gentlemen my guest at this time, Hulk Hogan! Hulk you team with the Big Show to take on the UnAmericans next and do something you've never been afraid to and that's defend this great country. Your thoughts?

    Hogan: Well let me tell you something Mean Gene! (This line alone gets a huge pop.) I've heard these two UnAmericans huff and puff about how bad this country is but my question to you brothers is why the hell are you here then? You two have been running your mouths about upsetting the little Hulksters and ending Hulkamania. Well I've got some news for you dudes! Many men tougher, stronger and smarter than you have tired and they've all failed in killing Hulkamania. With the Big Show by my side what are you gonna do UnAmericans when the worlds largest athlete and Hulk Hogan run wild on you!

    Hogan nods as Mean Gene as the music of the UnAmericans hits.

    Cole: This match is not only about this country but about these two young upstarts in Christian and Lance Storm knock off one of the, if not the biggest superstar of all time.

    Tazz: Hey don't forget that his partner happens to be a former world champion and legit seven footer.

    Lance Storm and Christian get in the ring and take mics.

    Storm: If I could be serious for a second........

    The crowd boos overwhelm Storm so Christian goes to speak instead.

    Christian: You can boo all you want now but I've got a feeling that you'll be doing a lot more of it later after we've ended the careers of Hulk Hogan and The Big Show. These guys will be the worst American 'heroes' since I don't know the Vietnam war!

    Big heat for this line as Hulk Hogan's music hits! He comes out clad in red and yellow tights with Big Show by his side.

    Tazz: his match looks to explode before it's already started!

    Cole: Storm and Christian are headed down the ramp.The Brawl is on!

    Storm goes after Hogan while Christain gets into it with Big Show. The shots are traded back and forth with the faces getting the upper hand. Hogan goes to throw Lance off the stage but brakes it up and throws Hulk into Big Show and this down the giant. Christian hits the unprettier on the stage on Hogan as Storm pounds on Show some more. Hogan's clearly out as the Christian and Storm DOUBLE SUPER KICK HIM OFF THE STAGE!

    Cole: OH MY GOD!

    Tazz: Hogan's out! His career must be over!

    As the medics check on Hogan, the UnAmericans waste no time and drag Big Show to the ring. Storm is on the apron and demands the referee ring the bell despite Hogan's absence. He complies as Christian has the upper hand on Big Show.

    Tag Team Grudge Match:
    The UnAmericans vs Hulk Hogan and Big Show


    The UnAmericans obviously already have the advantage from the get go and Big Show is in a sorry state. He's barely standing as Christian hammers away at him with chops, punches and kicks wobbling the giant but never quite managing to knock him off his feet. Christian overcomes this obstacle relatively quickly however as he hits Show with a drop kick straight into a tornado DDT that just plants the big man head first straight into the canvas. Meanwhile on the ramp Hogan is being attended too by the medics but it's not looking good. Hogan's barely moved and it seems as though a stretcher may be needed imminently. Meanwhile back in the ring Big Show is draped over the second rope and Christian slides to the outside and hits him with a slap that knocks Show right onto the canvas. Christian then tags in Storm and they hit spinning wheel kicks from different sides of Show which again sends him right down to the canvas. Storm cockily covers Show...

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    ........T-NO!.......

    That cocky cover may have cost Lance as the giant powers out. He looks to be getting to his feet but Storm isn't taking any chances this time and sends him right back to the mat with a leg lariat. Back at the bottom of the stage the stretcher is well and truly out as Hogan, neck brace clad is loaded onto the stretcher as the fans chant for their injured hero. The medics then begin to lift Hogan onto the stage as Christian mocks the leader of the Hulkamaniacs while Lance Storm continues to just beat the worn out, tired Big Show to a pulp. Storm then tries some of his more advance suplex style moves with an extremely quick snap suplex with Show's feet not really lifting off the ground. What is more impressive is when he tags in Christian and the two of them hit an aided German suplex. Christian then climbs up the turnbuckles and poses to the crowd in an insulting manner. He looks to be going for a diving head but, however Big Show grabs him by the throat! The Giant is looking for a choke slam but Christian counters it into an inverted DDT. He covers......

    ........One.........

    ........Two.........

    .........Thr-NO!.......

    Again Big Show defies the odds and the giant shows an unexpected amount of resilience. Meanwhile Hogan is on the stretcher and on the stage and is finally carried to the back. Cole informs us that we will be getting an update on Hogan's condition as soon as their is news while Tazz says that we should be focusing on this match. He's right as Christian hits a spinning upper cut from the top rope that floors Show. Christian then tags in Storm and they hit a double DDT followed by a double drop kick that sends Big Show flying to the outside. The two of them follow him their.

    ........One.......

    Christian and Storm are already pounding on Show as Lance has a sick grin on his face.

    ..........Two.......

    ..........Three........

    Storm starts ripping the padding off the floor as Christian heads up to the top turnbuckle.

    ..........Four..........

    ..........Five..........

    Storm then hooks Big Show for a pile driver as Cole screams for them not to do this spike pile driver on the concrete.

    ..........Six.........

    Christian Jumps!

    ..........Seven.........

    NO! Show back body drops Lance Storm right onto the concrete and then grabs Christian by his throat on the way down!

    ...........Eight..........

    With Christian by the throat Show throws him into the fans on the other side of the barricade and tosses Lance straight back into the ring.

    ..........Nine.........

    NO!

    Show makes it back into the ring before the count of 10 and it seems like for the first time in this match Show has the advantage. He hits Lance with a few stiff punches and bounces him off the ropes and hits him in the rebound with a big boot and follows it up with a sidewalk slam. Big Show then grabs Storm by the throat and tries a Choke slam but Lance wriggles out of it and drops behind Show and hits him with a spring board clothesline. Storm the tries a super kick but Show grabs his leg with one arm and his throat with the other! He lifts him up and plants him with a chokeslam!

    ........One........

    .........Two.........

    Three?

    .............

    NO!

    Christian is in and he knocks Show off the cover with a huge kick to the face. Storm then slowly recovers from the choke slam and he tags in Christian. He goes right to his signature moves as he hits an impressive flapjack and with a little help from Lance hits a fireman's carry gut buster. Christian then goes up top and hits a diving cross body before he tags in Lance Storm. The two get Big Show up on the top rope and hit an awesome double superplex that shakes the foundations of the Kemper arena. Storm covers...

    ........One........

    .........Two.........

    Three?

    .............

    NO!

    Storm cannot believe that Big Show kicked out of that move as he grabs the referee by the collar as Christian has to pull off the normally clam and calculated Lance Storm. Tazz says that Big Show has put up a great fight, no thanks to Hogan but Cole points out that what happened isn't his fault. Storm continues to chip away at Big Show and manages to hit a jaw breaker which sends Show into the corner and he then hits him with a handspring clothesline. Storm then signal for the end and nails Show with a ridiculous super kick and covers.....

    ........One........

    .........Two.........

    Three?

    .............

    .............

    NO!

    Storm then just starts kicking the Big Show over and over again screaming 'die' at the top of his lungs as the crowd showers him with boos. He then locks in the Maple Leaf!

    .......Lance is wrenching back.........

    .........Show's crawling to the ropes.........

    ..........Slowly getting there..........

    ..........Ever so close..........

    ...........Storm's dragging him back though..........

    ............But Big Show is powering through!...........

    .............Almost there............

    YES!

    The referee calls a rope break as Storm cannot believe that he's not been able to make, the broken down giant tap out. Storm then has a grin on his face as he tags in Christian. Storm then locks in the Maple Leaf but this time Christian locks in a cross face as well.

    ........Show's trapped in the middle of the ring.........

    .........He tries to escape.........

    .........But he can't do it...........

    .........Show's fading!.........

    .........Storm screams for him to tap out.........

    .........But Show appears unconscious.........

    ..........The referee raises his arm once..........

    ..........It drops.........

    ..........The referee does the same again..........

    ..........Show's arm drops for the second time...........

    ..........The referee raises his arm for a third time...........

    .............

    .............

    .............

    .............

    NO!

    It's broken up by........ HULK HOGAN!

    Hogan gives a huge boot to Storm that breaks the Maple Leaf and he gets chucked to the outside! Hulk then rips Christian off Big Show and starts teeing off on him and gets him in the corner. Here he gives him the ten count punches spot as Cole notes that Hogan may indeed be invincible. Tazz points out that this match isn't no disqualification and that the referee has lost complete control of this one. Eventually the referee pulls Hogan off Christian and sends him to the corner where he is eagerly awaiting the tag from Big Show. Show is crawling and he's so close but just as he's about to make the tag Lance Storm pulls Hogan off the apron and right into the mat and proceeds to beat the crap outta him. Show looks just disheartened in the ring as Christian then hits him with a lifting DDT and follow it up with a diving elbow drop but Show catches him with a spear! Big Show covers....

    ........One........

    .........Two.........

    Three?

    .............

    .............

    .............

    .............

    NO!

    Lance Storm is back in to quash any hope of Show coming back right now. Storm then just starts kicking the piss out of him over and over again until he's sent back to his corner. Christian then hits a few more of signature moves on the defenceless Show including a pendulum kick from the corner and a frog splash. Christian tries the unprettier but Big Show counters and hits the choke slam! This seems to take a lot out of both men as they lie laying in the of the ring. Both men crawl their way to their respective corners and TAG! Hogan's in but is drilled with a super kick straight away by Lance Storm. Surely that's it....

    ........One........

    .........Two.........

    Three?

    .............

    .............

    .............

    .............

    .............

    NO!

    Hogan sits up! Storm tries punching him a few times but it's no good! Ladies and Gentlemen he's HULKING UP! Storm tries another super kick but Hogan grabs his leg and and then elbows him in the face which really rocks the Canadian! Hogan then grabs him by the neck and rams his face into each of the four turnbuckles before hitting an Axe Bomber! Hogan then goes for the big boot but Storm ducks and slides all the way to his own corner to tag in Christian. Hogan tries an atomic drop but Christain counters and hits an unprettier! The cover....

    ........One........

    .........Two.........

    Three?

    .............

    .............

    .............

    .............

    .............

    NO!

    Hogan sits up again! Christian shakes his head in disbelief as Hogan gives him the 'you' point. He hits a few more stiff shots and then hits the bug boot but catches Christian before he falls to the mat and hits him with a body slam. He poses to the crowd as he signals for the leg drop! He bounces off the ropes but doesn't notice that Big Show gently tags himself in! Hogan hits the leg drop and covers but the referee explains to him that he's not the legal man! Show who's getting kind of booed tries to choke slam Christian but Storm comes in and gives him a super kick and Christian follows up with the unprettier! Storm then throws Hogan over the top rope as Christian covers as Cole screams in disbelief....

    ........One........

    .........Two.........

    Three?

    .............

    .............

    .............

    .............

    .............

    .............

    YES!

    Winners via pinfall at 16:58, The UnAmericans


    The UnAmericans roll out of the ring and celebrate on the ramp to a lot of heat as Hogan gets back in the ring.

    Cole: Why the hell did Big Show tag himself in? Hogan had this match won.

    Tazz: I have no idea Cole but that mistake cost him the match.

    Hogan then goes nose to nose with Big Show as they begin to argue.

    Cole: This is an explosive situation right here!

    Show then begins screaming that Hogan abandoned him at the start of the match as Hogan tries to clam him down.

    Tazz: Big Show has just lost it.

    Hogan then shakes his head and goes to leave but Big Show grabs him and hits a Choke Slam!

    Cole: Oh for god's sake! The man has already been thrown off the stage tonight. How much more can he take?

    Show then grabs the steel steps and tosses them in the ring,

    Tazz: Not like this Big Show!

    He then drills Hogan with the steps and picks up his limp body and chokeslams Hulk right into the steps!

    Cole: STOP IT BIG SHOW! Hogan's career could be done.

    Big Show seems satisfied with this amount of punishments and walks off as the EMTs hurry to the ring.

    Tazz: I just hope Hogan's spine hasn't been broken...

    The EMTs try and put Hogan on a stretcher but he stands up!

    Cole: What a hero!

    Hogan then gets out of the ring and starts walking up the ramp but then collapses halfway up it as the EMTs load up the stretcher.

    Tazz: Hulk needs to go to a hospital right now.

    'Hogan' chants echo through the arena as we cut to a video package...

    *** Video Package ***

    Straight away the closing moments of WrestleMania are shown as Triple H takes out both Stephanie and Chris Jericho to become the undisputed WWE Champion. We then change to clips of recent SmakDowns with Jericho talking about how Stephanie was always holding him back and now he's on his own he has a lot better chance of successes. These statements are backed up by Jericho shown standing tall over Trips on the last two SmackDowns including pinning him just three days ago following a sledgehammer shot. The narrator gets over that this match is no holds barred as we cut backstage...

    *** End Video Package ***

    Josh:Well on the pre-show we heard from the challenger, Chris Jericho but ladies and gentlemen my guest at this time, the WWF Champion Triple H.

    Triple H walks in looking focused to a big pop.

    Josh: Triple H tonight you defend your gold against Chris Jericho in a no holds barred match. Your thoughts?

    Triple H: Josh I've beaten Chris Jericho before. Tonight I'm planning to do it again. This title right here means everything to me, it's the pinnacle of this business, and I am not gonna loose it to Chris Jericho. He's proved to the world that he had to cheat in virtually all of his title defences and now there's no room for cheating Chris. This is the environment I thrive in, no holds barred. You can hit me with however many weapons you want Jericho but know this: I'm gonna hit you back harder and it's gonna be twice as hard!

    Triple H walks off his interview short and to the point as we head back to the announcers.

    Cole: That huge no holds barred match is coming up right now ladies and gentlemen but just before we get there Hulk Hogan was loaded into an ambulance moments ago and will be at the local medical facility. From what we understand the injuries are less severe than we first feared as his spine has not been broken, but his back is in immense pain. If there's any further news before the end of the broadcast we'll be sure to bring it to you.

    At that very moment the pyro explodes and here comes Chris Jericho to a lot of heat. Jericho cockily makes his way down to the ring.

    Tazz: Oh man I'm pumped for this no holds barred match.

    Cole: You and the thousands of people in the Kemper Arena!

    Jericho then poses on the turnbuckle as the music of Triple H hits.

    Tazz: The champ looks like he's in the zone Cole.

    Cole: That title is so important to Triple H, ever since he got into the business all he's ever wanted to be is the best.

    Triple H gets in the ring as the referee separates him from Jericho as Tony Chimel has the official introductions.

    Chimel: The following contest set for one fall is for the World Wrestling Federation Championship and is to be contested under no holds barred rules! Standing in the corner to my right he is the challenger, weighing in at 227lbs and hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Y2J...... Chris Jericho!

    Jericho raises one arm and shouts that he's 'the king of the world'.

    Chimel: And his opponent standing in the corner to my left weighing in at 260lbs and hailing from Greenwich, Connecticut he is the current reigning and defending WWF Champion, The Game Triple H!

    Hunter poses on the turnbuckle to the crowd but Jericho sneaks up from behind and gives him a low blow as the bell rings!

    [​IMG]

    WWF Championship, No Holds Barred:
    Triple H (c) vs Chris Jericho

    Hunter obviously starts at a major disadvantage as that low blow just makes him crumple on the top turn buckle as the fans just shower Jericho with boos as they hold up their various signs that slag off the self professed king of the world. Jericho then charges at Triple H with a big knee then continually knees him in the face with one, two, three knees that smash right into the skull of Triple H that could potentially be concussion inducing. Jericho then picks the already weakened Triple H up and props him in the corner and chops him multiple times, over and over so that his chest turns a bright red colour and the fans begin to loose count over how many times they've said 'woo'. Jericho then hits his signature one handed bull dog out of the corner and poses for the fans again to a lot of heat. Hunter recovers surprisingly quickly however but Jericho soon puts the champion down again with a Northern Lights suplex and bridges into the cover...

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    ........T-NO!.......

    Jericho is surprised by this kick out as he realises that perhaps his pre match low blow wasn't as effective as he first thought. Jericho then stomps on Hunter a few times before seriously planning his next move and kicks Hunter in the head. He gets Hunter up as he tells that he's king of the world and hits a very smooth double under hook back breaker and then wastes no time by following it up straight away with a swinging neck breaker which looks particularly vicious due to the speed at which Jericho swung Hunter. Y2J then hits a drop kick which stuns Triple H, but doesn't knock him off his feet as Chris heads up top. He dives with a reverse elbow but Trips catches him! The Game tries a back breaker but Jericho elbows him in the face to get out of the potentially dangerous back breaker and hits one of his own that seems to really hurt Triple H as he clutches his back and screams in pain. Jericho covers from this....

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    ........T-NO!.......

    Despite this being a no holds barred match it seems Jericho wants to keep it, for the time being a straight wrestling match as that's the environment that he has the advantage over Triple H in. Jericho then hits a very impressive combination of moves as he rocks Triple with an enziguri but before he even has time to fall to the mat Jericho follows it up with a hurricanrana! Chris chooses not to cover and continues with the solid wrestling moves as a way to out down Triple H and in particular focuses on the back of the champion. He starts with a simple back suplex and then with rolls over Triple H and picks him up to nail a vertical suplex and then again hits one final suplex, that being a Tiger suplex all which seem to cause Triple H a lot of pain. As he gets up Jericho sends him straight back to the canvas with a drop kick right to the back of Triple H. He then looks to apply the walls of Jericho but Hunter counters it and rolls him up....

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    Three?

    .......................

    NO!

    Jericho shocked that he just saw the match nearly go up in smoke bails from the ring as Triple H stands up and while clenching his back invites Jericho to get back in the ring as Y2J is still regrouping on the outside. Jericho then kicks the steel steps in frustration as Hunter goes to join him on the outside. Jericho sees him coming and tries to dive off the steps with a forearm but Triple catches him with a knee right to the gut. Triple H now has the stunned Y2J at his mercy and rams his head repeatedly into the steel steps, around five times until Jericho collapses. Cole reminds us that while this match is no holds barred it's not falls count anywhere. Triple H then picks up Jericho and tries a vertical suplex but Jericho drops behind him and rams him into the steel steps! Jericho goes on the apron and dives off it but Hunter catches him and back body drops Chris onto the steps before rolling him back into the ring and trying his first proper cover of the match....

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    ........Thr-NO!.....

    Unlike Jericho, Triple H shows no sign of showing frustration quite yet as he hits Y2J with a short arm clothesline and while he's down on the ground an effective knee drop. Hunter also tries Jericho's approach from earlier and just keeps to straight wrestling moves in the early goings of this match as he hits another running clothesline and follows it up with a nice running neck breaker that looks very smooth. Triple H then Irish whips Jericho and tries a face breaker knee smash but Jericho counters and tries a German suplex but Hunter counters and pushes him into the ropes and on the rebound hits a face breaker knee smash and then goes right away into a DDT and covers...

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    ........Thr-NO!.....

    Triple H looks slightly annoyed that Jericho kicked out of that DDT and abandons his simple wrestling plan and leaves the downed Jericho in the ring as he pulls out a kendo stick from under the ring. Hunter then gets back in the ring and goes to hit Jericho with the stick but Jericho ducks and when Hunter turns around Jericho kicks the stick right into his face! Jericho has an evil expression on his face as he picks up the stick and begins to smash it into the back of Triple H who is laying helplessly on the canvas. Jericho then channels his inner Sandman and hits the White Russian leg sweep which breaks the Kendo stick on impact and covers Hunter.....

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    Three?

    .......................

    NO!

    Jericho has a crazed look in his eyes as though he needs another weapon as he screams at the referee for counting too slowly. Jericho goes to the outside and steals the time keeper's steel chair and throws it into the ring. He then goes to hit Triple H with it but he ducks and then Jericho drops the chair and gets set up for the pedigree but Y2J counters this move and back body drops Hunter right into the steel chair causing more pain for Hunter's already damaged back. Jericho then gets the chair and smashes it into the back of Trips three times with each shot being more devastating that the last. Jericho then smashes the chair on the ground a few times as though he was calling Triple H up and then hits him over the head with the chair BUSTING TRIPLE H WIDE OPEN! Jericho then covers.......

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    Three?

    .......................

    .......................

    NO!

    Jericho cannot believe that Hunter kicked out of that move as the chair has broken into two pieces. Triple H appears to be struggling back up but Jericho soon puts a stop to that with a few heavy shots before tossing him right to the outside. On the outside Jericho rams Hunter's head continuously on the announce table exposing the wound that has busted the champion open. Jericho then retrieves another chair and throws it in the ring before moving Hunter back in. Jericho looks to be setting something up with the chair but Hunter counters and hits a back suplex right onto the chair. Hunter then tries a spine buster but Jericho counters it into a perfectly executed hurricanrana. Jericho then sets up the chair as though you were going to sit on it and bulldogs Triple H face first into the chair and covers....

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    Three?

    .......................

    .......................

    NO!

    Again despite Jericho's best efforts he still cannot put Hunter away. In sheer rage Jericho just boots Triple H in the face a few times before heading to the outside. Jericho then rips the Spanish announce table apart as Hunter staggers out of the ring. Jericho goes to suplex Triple H though the table but Triple H counters and hits a suplex of his own! Following an evil spine buster to the outside that looks like it would have broken a man's spine Hunter gets on the Spanish announce table and goes to pedigree Jericho. Chris counters and BACK DROPS TRIPLE H THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE that the Americans use. Cole cannot believe what is going on as Triple H is surely out for the count. Jericho the positions Hunter on the Spanish announce table and climbs up on the ring apron. He screams that he's 'The King of the World' before spring boarding and preforming a lionsault however TRIPLE H MOVES SENDING JERICHO THROUGH THE TABLE! Both men are out of it but Hunter recovers first and rolls Jericho back in the ring and collapses on top of him and covers....

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    Three?

    .......................

    .......................

    ........................

    NO!

    Triple H cannot believe that Jericho survived that crash through the table but not to worry as Hunter goes for the pedigree. However Jericho counters it yet again but this time with a desperate low blow. Jericho then springboards off the ropes and hits a regular lionsault but chooses not to cover and instead pose as Cole condemns his decision. Jericho instead locks on the walls of Jericho!

    ........He's synching the hold in........

    .........Getting more painful.........

    .........Hunter tries to struggle for the ropes but realises they make no difference in this match.......

    ..........Jericho drives the knee into the back turning it into a liontamer........

    ..........Hunter's got nowhere to go.........

    ...........He's on the verge of tapping..........

    ...........Hand's coming down............

    NO!

    At the last second Hunter rolls over sending Jericho into the ropes and on the rebound HITS THE PEDIGREE! Cover!

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    Three?

    .......................

    .......................

    ........................

    ........................

    NO!

    Jericho gets the shoulder up at 2 and nine tenths as Triple H has not yet managed to retain his title despite sending Jericho through the announce table and giving him the pedigree. Hunter sets Jericho up on the apron for something but it gets countered by Jericho with a kick to the gut. With a sick grin on his face Jericho gives Triple H an almighty DDT on the apron with the top of the champ's head bouncing right off the hardest part of the ring. Hunter is now really gushing blood his face covered in the proverbial crimson mask. Cole notes how Jericho has pretty much used his entire arsenal and has not been able to put Triple H away and reclaim the Undisputed Championship. Jericho rolls Hunter's lifeless body into the ring as Jericho goes under the apron and with a sick grin on his face pulls out a SLEDGEHAMMER! Jericho gets back in the ring and taunts Triple H with the hammer as the champion slowly gets up. Jericho charges with the hammer but Triple H ducks! Jericho turns round and gets nailed with a pile driver! Cover...

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    Three?

    .......................

    .......................

    ........................

    ........................

    NO!

    Jericho kicks out! Triple H cannot believe it as now he picks up the hammer. Hunter then waits as Jericho gets to his feet with a crazed look in his eye. Triple H charges with the hammer but Jericho gives him a low blow! Y2J grabs the hammer and clocks Triple H right in the face with it and covers...

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    Three?

    .......................

    .......................

    ........................

    ........................

    NO!

    Again Triple H kicks out and keeps his WWF Title reign alive. This is the last straw for Jericho who goes to nail Hunter in the throat while he's on the ground but Trips blocks it and grabs the hammer. Jericho tries to get it off him but it's no use as Trips rips it right out of his hands and hits Jericho! Before he can flop to the ground however Triple H stops Y2J's fall and hooks him for the pedigree! He hits and just falls on top of Jericho!

    .......One........

    ........Two........

    Three?

    .......................

    .......................

    ........................

    ........................

    ........................

    N-.....................

    YES!

    Winner via pinfall at 20:15 and still WWF Champion, Triple H

    The Game's music hits as the arena explodes over the great contest we just witnessed. Jericho appears to be conscious as he rolls to the outside while Triple H poses on the turnbuckle with the title.

    Cole: What a match! What a moment for Triple H!

    Tazz: An unbelievable contest is what we just witnessed Cole. Out of this world! I'd like to see Raw top that!

    Cole: As Triple H celebrates his historic title defense Raw will also be making history tonight as they crown their first World Heavyweight Champion. Over to my colleagues Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler!



    ===NotoriousMEAT===


    JR: "That was a hell of a fight we just saw over the WWF Championship."

    King: "Did Tazz just say he wants to see RAW try and top that? Oh we'll top that alright!"

    JR: "Can't disagree with you there King. Up next everyone is our main event!"


    [​IMG]

    JR: "Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Undertaker have been on a quest for championship gold all year. Both have gone down very different paths, but tonight those paths cross in a tense situation that has only gotten more out of control as the weeks have the past. Despite personal difference with both men, Ric Flair sees both Austin and Undertaker as the top superstars in the industry and couldn't deny them the opportunity to battle tonight for the right to become the first World Heavyweight Champion. After the dust settles, one of these men will be the leader of a new era for Monday Night RAW."

    A full video package airs revisiting everything Undertaker and Austin have been through since WrestleMania. Being drafted by Ric Flair. Being announced as top contenders for the World Title and their encounter with the nWo. It all ends with Austin destroying Undertaker's bike from RAW last week. As the hype video ends we see a shot of the World Heavyweight Championship on display in front of the announce table on a little table. There's a pause and the fans anticipation is growing until finally..

    *GLASS SHATTERS*

    The arena comes unglued as the raucous crowd welcomes their hero. Stone Cold comes marching through the curtain and makes a B-line for the ring. He enters the ring and hits all four corners, each time throwing up his arms and the double bird. Austin hops down from the final corner and paces back and forth, itching for his opponent's arrival.

    There's a few seconds until the Limp Bizkit song cuts off Austin's theme. "Keep rollin' rollin' rollin'!.." which sends the crowd into a frenzy of boo's. Undertaker slowly comes rolling out on his bike. He sits on the stage and just stares down at Austin. He rides down the ramp and circles the ring before parking the bike at the bottom of the ramp. After entering the ring Taker doesn't do any posing. He stands just inside the ropes and glares at Austin. The time keeper hands the referee the World Heavyweight Championship as the announcements are made.

    Lilian: "The following contest is scheduled for one fall, and is for the World Heavyweight Championship! Introducing first. From Victoria, Tex.."

    Lilian stops mid-sentence when Stone Cold bolts across the ring and pounces on Undertaker! Austin has Taker in the corner and is wearing him out with right hands. Lilian quickly scurries from the ring with the World Title as the referee goes to separate the two. After 10 more seconds of the referee yelling at him, Austin finally stops and storms away. With this separation the referee has a chance to ask Taker if he's ready, who responds be standing up and shouting "yes!". The ref calls for the bell and the match officially starts.


    The fans are stunned! The scene of chaos comes to a halt as "Rollin" by Limb Bizkit blares through the arena speakers. Undertaker slowly pushes up to his feet as Lilian Garcia steps over to the bring and lays the World Heavyweight Championship underneath the bottom rope.

    Lilian: "Here is your winner, and the NEEEW World Heavyweight Champion.. The Undertaker!"

    Undertaker reaches down and grabs the title. He steps over to the center of the ring and just looks at the World Title. He looks up at Flair who is about half way down the ramp and just smirks as he holds up the World Heavyweight Championship. Flair looks on disgusted as all the officials and security begin to leave the scene, walking up the ramp past Flair who doesn't move.

    King: "He did it JR! The Undertaker is World Heavyweight Champion!"

    JR: "Are you kidding me!? Undertaker is the luckiest man in sports entertainment because that was an absolute screw job! Austin had him beat in the center of that ring and for some reason that damn nWo just had to come out and ruin a classic championship match!"

    King: "I dare you to go say all that to the World Heavyweight Champion JR."

    JR: "Whether he likes it or not, those are the facts and Undertaker knows it!"


    Undertaker leaves the ring and takes a seat on his motorcycle. He lays the World Championship on his lap and starts the bike up. Flair still hasn't moved, but as Taker starts driving up the ramp Flair steps out of the way. Taker stops next to Flair and starts to chuckle before driving away. Inside the ring Stone Cold is laying on his side. The referee is checking on him but he ignores all the officials questions. Flair looks back at Austin, then up at Taker who has stopped on the stage. He holds the World Title up with arm as the fans continue to boo him. The final shot of Backlash is of an absolutely pissed off Stone Cold still down on the mat.

    Just some short feedback on the PPV as I haven't been reading the thread so I can't really give a full review.

    Good opening contest and I was surprised to see Eddie win the belt as I thought RVD would retain. Some good development to whatever is going on with Booker and Goldust.

    Nice hardcore match here and Edge winning was the right move, even if I love Raven. You have the benefit here of Edge still working his way up the card and I'm sure he has a bright future for you Notorious. Based off what happened post match I'd say picking up Dreamer and getting rid of Maven may be a slighter better trade for Raw. I expect a triple threat match for the US Title down the line, at least that's where I hope this is going before Raven and Dreamer really get down to feuding.

    I don't remember hardly anything from Billy and Chuck, but I expected them to beat The APA due to the announcers being so confident in APA winning. Looks like there's some brand feuding coming soon which could be pretty good if you guys do it right. Wonder if Billy and Chuck will be smack dab in the middle of it.

    Not surprised to see Brock beat Hardy in dominat fashion and Hardy makes for a good person to put Brock over at this point. Not sure how Brock caught Jeff going for the Swanton Bomb and countered it into an F-5 though.

    Another obvious win with the NWO taking out those damn Dudleyz. Nash pinning Spike was a nice touch considering it protects the actual talent in the team by letting Spike get beat and has the biggest member of the NWO crush the smallest Dudley. Poor Stacy getting laid out post match and getting the spraypaint treatment.

    Angle beating Perfect is another good decision considering you won't have too much longer to go with Perfect if you don't use him past his death date. Not to mention Angle benefits more from winning here than the veteran does but winning by submission over Perfect is probably better for him so glad you did that.

    The UnAmericans winning seems like a major upset to me but it could be huge for their careers. Looks like Hogan and Show are gonna feud now which I can't say I have any interest in. But glad for the upset. Wonder what Big Show will do for a few months until Hogan comes back considering I'd expect him to be out a few months to sell the attack.

    Triple H winning was something I figured would happen as well. Triple H is the bigger star and I expect he'll move onto a new challenger now while Jericho gets a new feud as well. Might be interesting to see where things go from here.

    Good main event match and it was nice to see a title change here. It's obvious this feud is gonna keep going, maybe even past Austin's rematch and that'll be fun to see. The NWO getting involved was interesting and looks like Austin has a line of people he's gotta open up a can of whoop ass on. Just a matter of if he goes after Taker first or the NWO. My guess would be NWO.

    Overall it was a good PPV and Notorious, THANK GOD YOU STOPPED USING THOSE DAMN MUSIC NOTES FOR THEMES! Those used to bug the hell out of me. I remember when you ended your first thread for this time period you told me you had some huge plans and I'm sure you have some again this time. Hopefully I can pay more attention to what's going on in this thread in the future when I have less things taking up my time but who knows. The formatting was fine though I would like to see all the matches be inside quotes in the future.

    PREVIEW for
    April 22nd, 2002

    THE BACKLASH FROM BACKLASH

    Edgeucation in hardcore
    [​IMG]

    United States Champion Edge may not have been ready for the hardcore battle with Raven, but the young superstar thrived and was able to defeat Raven and unify his U.S. and Hardcore championships. Edge has been undefeated since the brand extension and his wave of momentum only gets bigger. What's next for RAW's fastest rising star?


    Better than perfect
    [​IMG]

    At Backlash Kurt Angle did exactly what he said he would do. Defeat Mr. Perfect and prove to the world that he is THE best wrestler on the face of the planet. We've learned that Kurt Angle plans to address his pursuit of the World Heavyweight Championship and the rumor is, he intends to issue a challenge.


    Lack of Order
    [​IMG]

    The New World Order took the fight to the Dudley family and came out victorious. After assaulting and spray painting Stacy Keibler, many thought the nWo's dastardly actions were done for the night. Those people would be wrong. The trio not only interfered in the night's main event, but heavily influenced the outcome after assaulting Stone Cold Steve Austin. Will the nWo explain themselves on RAW? Or will the chaos continue?


    World Heavyweight Champion Crowned
    [​IMG]

    Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Undertaker met in an epic main event for the right to become the first ever World Heavyweight Champion. Stone Cold had the victory but an incapacitated referee and gang style mugging courtesy of the New World Order dashed those dreams, allowing The Undertaker to become World Heavyweight Champion. It's no surprise that Stone Cold is beyond angry, and safe money says he plans on bringing hell with him to St. Louis.



    What else to watch for..
    -How will Ric Flair handle the nWo?

    -The reign of The Undertaker begins. Will a new challenger emerge?

    -Tommy Dreamer was traded to RAW during the Backlash pay-per-view and immediately targeted long time rival Raven. Has another chapter in this blood feud started?

    -William Regal announced on HEAT before the pay-per-view that he had started a petition to remove Ric Flair from power on RAW. With the signature of Mr. McMahon to get him started, how much further will Regal go in his quest to impeach the Nature Boy?​

    WWF RAW
    April 22nd, 2002
    St. Louis, Missouri


    The WWF signature video that opens all World Wrestling Federation programming starts up at 8pm sharp. The clip plays for a few moments before it starts to cut out. The screen turns to static but the signature keeps cutting back in, but it has no color. It cuts back to static and we hear, "NEW WORLD ORDER". This takes us to black and white stills from last night's Backlash Pay-Per-View. There's a few shots of the war between the nWo and Dudleyz. We eventually see Kevin Nash taking down Spike Dudley mid-Jackknife Powerbomb. We hear the nWo announced as the winners and then see as they carry Stacy back to the ring. We see a clip of the Dutchess of Dudleyville being tagged by spray paint, and eventually the nWo standing tall in the ring. The screen cuts to static again for only a second before coming back to a still from the World Heavyweight Championship match. Austin is hooking the leg after hitting a Stunner on The Undertaker, and the crowd shouting "ONE! TWO! THREE!" is heard before Jim Ross shouts that the referee is unconcious. We then see a still of the nWo surrounding the ring, then eventually mugging Stone Cold. We see The Undertaker take advantage as the nWo flee and become World Heavyweight Champion. The final black and white still shows the three different faces as Backlash went off the air. The Undertaker feeling triumphant. Ric Flair feeling disgusted. And Stone Cold Steve Austin.. totally pissed off! We cut out to static again, but come back to a colorful arena packed to the ceiling with fans.


    JR: "Welcome everyone, to Monday Night RAW! We're live from St. Louis, Missouri with a raucous crowd tonight still buzzing from the events that took place just 24 hours ago at Backlash."

    King: "The events you're talking about is The Undertaker becoming our new World Heavyweight Champion! The first ever JR!"

    JR: "That's certainly one of them. But you're leaving out how he won that championship King. The New World Order reeked havoc at Backlash last night. Not only did they eliminate the Dudley clan, but they're directly responsible for costing Stone Cold Steve Austin the World Heavyweight Championship!"

    King: "Oh you don't know that JR! That match was far from over."



    WOOOOOOO!​


    Ric Flair's music interrupts the commentary.

    JR: "Well here's someone who I bet has a lot to say about Backlash and the nWo."

    Ric Flair emerges through the curtain and makes his way down the ramp.

    King: "I don't care what he says JR. Ric Flair brought ALL of this on himself. He thought he would draft The Undertaker and draft the nWo and that he could make their lives miserable. But THEY'RE the ones running the show now, and Ric Flair is upset. It's all his fault."

    Flair enters the ring and motions for a microphone. He looks very distraught. A little angry, but mostly upset.

    JR: "King, it's too early in the night for you to be THIS delusional."

    Ric patiently waits for his music to fade out. He looks around at the capacity crowd before looking down at the mat. The music ends but that doesn't quiet down the fans. They're both excited for RAW as well as showing Flair a great deal of respect.

    Flair: "I don't deserve that."

    The fans only cheer louder. A good portion of the fans down front start bowing to the Nature Boy. Though Flair doesn't appear to be in the best mood, he can't help but smile.

    Flair: "Oh St. Louis. We've had some crazy times haven't we?"

    The crowd's roar just continues.

    Flair: "The only thing longer than my championship conquests here in St. Louis is my list of female conquests in St. Louis... WOOOOO!"

    The fans love it. Classic Nature Boy. Flair's smile grows.

    Flair: "Damn it I need this!"

    Flair drops the mic and rips his jacket off, throwing it to the mat. He hits the ropes before coming back and dropping an elbow and his defenseless jacket. He grabs the microphone and pushes back up to his feet. The fans are goin nuts.

    Flair: "No more moping. I'm not gonna stand here in front of all of you and be disappointed in MYSELF."

    He pauses and takes a breath.

    Flair: "N! W! O! ... GET THE HELL OUT HERE! NOW!"

    Any fans who were seated now join the rest of the sold out crowd and come to their feet. Everyone waits in anticipation.

    Flair: "I don't care if it's one of you or all three! You had no problem running down here last night, so come do it now!"

    Ric turns and check behind him, knowing how the nWo likes to jump people from behind. He slowly backs into a corner before looking back up at the stage. At that moment.. the music hits.

    ..
    ...

    The music of former European Champion, William Regal. The overwhelming positive vibe in the arena dies at the cue of the low conquering tune of Regal's music. Regal himself comes into view and doesn't waste anytime making his way to the ring. As always he's dressed to impress, and with him carries the same clipboard he had last night during HEAT. The clipboard he hopes to fill with signatures and remove Ric Flair from power. Regal enters the ring as Flair slowly steps out of the corner. Ric seems very agitated and looks to get in the first word before Regal's music even cuts.

    Flair: "Now is NOT the time Regal!"

    Though Regal initially appeared very calm, the outbursts angers him and he lunges forward, ripping the microphone from Flair's hand.

    Regal: "Now is the perf... CUT THE DAMN MUSIC!"

    The music almost instantly cuts out.

    Regal: "Now is the perfect time, Mr. Flair!"

    William takes a step back and takes a breath. His emotion got the better of him.

    Regal: "I tried being diplomatic with you Flair. Even though you went out of your way to try and ruin my career, I tried to speak with you. But you didn't have the time. The endless war that wages in this ring and even backstage has consumed your time, which is ironic, because YOU caused it!"

    Lawler: "See JR! Regal knows! This is all Ric Flair's fault. He has no one to blame but himself."

    JR: "Will you hush!?"


    The crowd condemns Regal. Their support of Ric Flair is unwavering.

    Regal: "I don't know if you heard last night, I'm sure you didn't. This here.."

    He holds up the clipboard.

    Regal: "..is a formal request to have YOU, Ric Flair, relieved of your duties of running RAW.. as well as WWF co-owner!"

    Again the crowd shower's Regal with boo's. He pays them no mind.

    Regal: "I of course have already signed. And since last night.. I've gotten the signatures of THREE WWF Superstars. Superstars on YOUR roster, who aren't blind to your incompetence. You are no longer their leader. I am! And it's only a matter of time before the rest of the RAW roster takes notice and follows with us."

    The crowd just continues to rain on Regal's parade. Flair seems to have calmed down for the most part. He stares at the clipboard, then politely asks for the microphone by extending his hand. Regal scoffs before handing it over.

    Flair: "You mind if I see that?"

    Ric is referring to the clipboard. He again extends his hand. Regal gleefully hands it over. Flair mulls it over, undoubtedly taking note of the names on the list.

    Flair: "Well look... Vince McMahon even signed."

    The crowd boo's at the mention of McMahon's name. Regal quickly leans in to the microphone.

    Regal: "The true owner of the World Wrestling Federation!"

    Ric glances up at Regal with disdain before taking one more look at the list. He then hands the clipboard back, but keeps the microphone.

    Flair: "Regal.. I have too much going on to even pretend to be threatened by your "petition". If the board of directors find me incapable of running RAW, then so be it. But for the time being, I have enough gangs of pissy superstars running around here to even care about what you and your band of misfits want. If THEY wanna follow YOU, more power to em!"

    Ric truly doesn't care of Regal's threats. The fans eat it up. Regal may not want to follow Flair's lead.. but the fans in St. Louis seem to have no problem doing so. Regal reaches out of the mic, but Flair pulls away.

    Flair: "Your done talking. The time for talk is done, you need to get ready to fight."

    This pops the crowd.

    Flair: "You think I wasn't paying attention last night. But I was. I saw you beat The Hurricane after knocking him out with those damn brass knuckles! Well ya know what, he wants revenge.. and I'm inclined to give it to him!"

    The fans approve of the decision.

    Flair: "So tonight Regal, you get back in this ring with The Hurricane. And so help me God.. if I see you pull those brass knuckles out, I'ma..."

    RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHH

    Flair is cut off by a loud noise from somewhere else in the arena. The fans are the first to notice a change of view on the titantron. We see backstage in the parking lot area. Again we here the RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUHHHH as a pick-up truck comes roaring down the ramp into the parking garage. On the side of the truck is a large skull decal, and the fans know.. Stone Cold Steve Austin has arrived. There's a buzz among the crowd as the truck comes to a sudden halt. The buzz turns to all out frenzy as Austin steps down out of the truck, slamming the door behind him.

    Flair and Regal watch on as Austin makes his way inside. He doesn't take more than 10 steps from his truck before he's suddenly approached by Johnathan Coachman with microphone in hand.

    Coachman: "Stone Cold! ... Stone Cold! After everything that happened last night, what do you.. uhhhh!"

    Austin cuts the interview short by shoving Coachman to the ground! This of course gets the audience even more worked up. Austin keeps marching, eventually past the camera who watches him open the nearest door and disappear inside. The titantron cuts back to Flair and Regal inside the ring. Regal doesn't seem to interested in Stone Cold's arrival.

    Flair: "Ya know what Regal, that man up there might sign your petition. He MIGHT!"

    This gets a mixed reaction from the crowd.

    Flair: "But one thing I KNOW FOR SURE he wants.. is to fight."

    No mixed feelings from the crowd on this one.

    Flair: "Now me being the.. how did you word it, "incompetent"? Yeah, me being the incompetent leader I am.. I have a lot of, let's say mood swings. Sometimes it's so bad, I'll change my mind just seconds after making a decision. Like you versus The Hurricane tonight. That's cancelled. Get one of your buddies on that list to face him. I'm sure he'd be satisfied with that."

    Regal nods in agreement. He clearly doesn't mind skipping out on the competition.

    Flair: "I'm glad you agree. But whether you agree or not, tonight.... you face Stone Cold Steve Austin!"

    The crowd explodes! Regal's eyes grow wide as he starts to plea with Flair to reconsider. Ric hands him the microphone and walks past him, only stopping to reach down and pick up his jacket.

    Regal: "Flair! You.. Flair!"

    Ric steps through the ropes and heads up the ramp. He looks to his right out at the fans and can't help but let out a "WOOOOOO!".

    Regal: "Flair!"

    William realizes Flair is done with the conversation and in a fit throws the microphone down to the mat. The camera holds on Regal's frustrated face before switching back over to commentary.

    JR: "I guess we've got our main event for tonight King."

    King: "See this is what I mean JR! Flair is drunk with power!"

    JR: "Then why don't you go sign Regal's petition King! What Flair says goes, and tonight Regal has an extremely pissed off rattlesnake to deal with."

    King: "Flair just wants to get back at Regal for starting his petition."

    JR: "You might be right King, but Regal's made this bed and now he has to lay in it."


    [​IMG]

    JR: "Well Regal has his hand full later tonight, but that's not all."

    King: "Oh I can't wait. After beating that has-been Mr. Perfect last night at Backlash, KURT ANGLE is going to grace us tonight with his State of the Union Address! I wonder what he has to say JR!?"

    JR: "We'll find out later tonight.."


    We go backstage and see Matt Hardy making his way down a hallway. He gets a positive reaction from the crowd.

    JR: "..but coming up next we got out first match of the night. Matt Hardy is in action, next!"

    RAW fades to black and immediately goes to this..

    The Rabid Wolverine hunts again. Another Chris Benoit return promo. The comeback from his broken neck is imminent, and we finally go to break.



    We come back from commercial and we're inside the arena. The Hardy Boyz music blares through the speakers which gets an already hot crowd even more excited. Matt Hardy comes running out onto the stage. Usually he's accompanied by his girlfriend Lita, but this time he comes alone. Matt makes his way down the ramp and slaps hands with any fans reaching over the barricade. He slides into the ring and rungs to the far corner. He climbs up and throws up the Hardy Gun sign with both hands before hopping down and removing his shirt. Hardy's music eventually fades out and there's a pause as Matt and the fans await his opponent.


    The titantron goes black.


    A claw rips through the screen..

    "THE RABID WOLVERINE"

    The fans start buzzing before a second claw rips through the screen..

    "HUNTS NOW!"

    The fans start screaming, but they're suddenly drowned out by the sound of Chris Benoit's music! The entire audience comes to their feet as the titantron switches over to Benoit's entrance video. It takes a few moments, but soon enough, Chris Benoit appears on the stage! Dressed to compete, Benoit makes his way down the ramp. He wastes no time getting down to the ring. He stomps up the stairs and slips through the ropes. His music eventually ends and the fans are on fire.

    "WELCOME BACK!"
    ..
    "WELCOME BACK!
    ..
    "WELCOME BACK!"


    Benoit stands half way between his corner and the center of the ring. He maintains a serious demeanor even while behind showered with love and affection for the St. Louis faithful. Matt Hardy looks surprised, but remains confident. He nods and steps towards the center of the ring. He extends his hand. Benoit briskly walks to the center of the ring, almost nose to nose with Hardy. Matt holds his ground, and Benoit eventually takes his hand and shakes it. Both men separate and return to their corners. The referee calls for the bell.

    The bell rings and has Benoit's music starts to play again, he still has the hold locked in. After a moment he releases and quickly gets to his feet. The referee goes to raise his hand timidly. Benoit looks at him as he slowly takes his arm and and raises his arm in victory. Benoit just looks down at Hardy before exiting the ring.

    JR: "What an impressive showing by the returning Chris Benoit!"

    King: "The Rabid Wolverine means BUSINESS JR! That was almost scary."


    Matt Hardy gets to his feet with assistance from the official and the fans give him a nice round of applause before we go backstage.

    We see William Regal. The camera is actually focused pretty closely on him.

    Regal: "I hope you're ready. You are the man for the job. It's your time!"

    The camera zooms out and we Regal is talking to Albert! The big man is dressed to compete and looks fired up.

    Regal: "Go out there tonight, and finish what I started last night! Destroy that.. pitful, ugh, super hero."

    Albert slams a fist into his open hand. He's been staring straight ahead but his gaze is suddenly captured by something off camera. Regal notices and quickly looks ahead.

    Regal: "Now wait a minute.."

    The camera pulls away and Mark Henry steps into view. Regal turns to stand side by side with Albert. There's a moment of silence. Albert and Henry's sights never waver as the two behemoths eye each other. Regal starts to push Albert down the hall way.

    Regal: "No. No come on now you have a match."

    Albert and William Regal step away and continue out of frame. The camera slowly focuses in on Henry and holds on him watching Albert and Regal walk away.

    JR: "Well Albert isn't the only one with a match tonight!"

    [​IMG]

    JR: "Ol' Regal himself went and stuck his foot pretty deep in his mouth tonight and now finds himself in our main event with one PO'ed Rattlesnake!"

    King: "He didn't put his foot in his mouth JR, he spoke the truth! Now he faces the wrath of an unjust ruler, but that's the mark of a TRUE leader JR! Regal will meet Stone Cold head on tonight!"

    JR: "I hope William Regal is as confident as you are King. Guess we'll find out later tonight!"


    RAW goes to commercial.



    The announce team welcomes us back to RAW.

    JR: "Welcome back ladies and gentlemen.."

    On the screen we see Stone Cold Steve Austin's truck still out in the parking lot where he left it parked. Down in the corner of the screen it reads During the Break. There's a loud roar in the distance, almost like the sound of an incoming motorcycle.

    JR: "During the commercial break, The Undertaker arrived to the arena."

    The camera pans over to the entrance ramp into the parking garage, and sure enough a motorcyle comes riding down. It's the new World Heavyweight Champion, The Undertaker! And visible around his neck, is the World Title. The strap is fastened and hangs around The Undertaker head. The audience all boo as he pulls in and stops by Stone Cold's truck. He look at it, and suddenly the serious expression on his face changes as he chuckles. Undertaker revs the bike before driving past the truck and out of view.

    King: "That World Heavyweight Championship looks GREAT on him JR! Don'tcha think?"

    JR: "I don't see how The Undertaker can be in such a great mood after last night. Does he not realize there's a venemous rattlesnake in the arena just itching for some revenge?"

    King: "The World Heavyweight Champion isn't scared of anybody!"



    STAND BACK!..
    THERE'S A HURRICANE COMIN' THROUGH!


    WWF's resident superhero The Hurricane comes rushing out onto the stage! He gets a nice reaction from the crowd as he makes his way down the ramp towards the ring. We're shown a replay of The Hurricane's match last night on HEAT with William Regal. Hurricane has his hand around Regal's throat for the Hurri-Chokeslam, but is blindsided by the brass knuckles which ultimately costs him the match. The replay ends and Hurricane is now in the ring. He was watching the replay on the titantron with the crowd. He shakes his hand and waives his finger as if saying "not this time" before hopping up on the second rope of the nearest corner and doing his Hurri-pose!

    Hurricane's music fades out and is soon followed by the villainous tune of William Regal. Albert comes through the curtain though, but Regal does follow close behind. He still has the clipboard with him as the two make their way to the ring. Albert enters through the ropes but Regal goes over to the announce area to grab a microphone.

    Regal: "Hurricane.. listen."

    The fans start to boo before Regal can say much more.

    Regal: "..don't listen to them Hurricane, listen to me! There doesn't need to be a fight tonight. Don't let Ric Flair keep throwing you to the wolves. Am I the only one who remembers what The Undertaker did to you a few weeks ago? Then tonight he let ME pick your opponent. He doesn't care about you Hurricane."

    The fans boo even louder.

    Regal: "But see, THEY care Hurricane. The fans care. And I know you care about them! If you really want to save these people Hurricane, then sign this petition.."

    He reaches up to the ring, extending the petition to Hurricane.

    Regal: "..and save the people of Earth from the tyrannical reign of Ric Flair."

    The fans continue to boo as Hurricane takes the petition. He gives it a brief look before looking back at Albert who stands stoic a few feet away in the ring. Hurricane out at the crowd who plead with him not to sign it. Hurricane's head shoots back down at Regal, and he gives a THUMBS DOWN as he throws the clipboard out the ring down at Regal's feet. The fans approve! Regal looks appalled as he slowly brings the microphone up to his lips.

    Regal: "Pity you feel that way."

    He then drops the microphone and we switch over to the hard camera just in time to see Albert charge and club the Hurricane from behind. Hurricane drops and the referee quickly jumps in. He pushes Albert away before checking on The Hurricane. He crawls over to his corner and slowly gets up to one knee with help of the middle rope. He holds his head, but gives the referee the nod that he's still able to compete.

    The fans seem surprised as they cheer for the victory. The Hurricane also seems surprised as he quickly rolls up to his feet and stumbles towards the ropes. No one is as surprised as William Regal who stares on in utter disbelief. The referee quickly grabs Hurricane's hand and raises his arm. Behind them Albert comes to his feet, an equally surprised look on his face. The surprised look turns to anger and he rumbles forward for the second time attacks Hurricane from behind. Albert begins to stomp away at Hurricane while the ref shouts and demands that he stops. This gets the referee pushed to the ground. William Regal gets up into the ring as Albert goes back to stomping Hurricane. Regal comes up behind Albert and begins to pull him away. This stops the assault, but at that moment, the booing fans quietly begin to cheer as MARK HENRY comes charging down the ramp. He stomps at the ring and slides in under the bottom rope before pushing up to his feet.

    Just as they were backstage, Albert and Mark Henry's stare become deadlocked on each other. A buzz begins to build among the crowd. Are these two bulls about to collide? William Regal continues to try and pull Albert away. The only thing between these big boys is The Hurricane who's slowly pushing up to his feet. Mark Henry grabs him under the arm and helps him up to his feet. Albert tries going forward but William Regal now moves his whole body in front of Albert and again pushes him back. Henry and Hurricane stare Albert down as Hurricane holds his ribs. Just then.. Mark Henry turns and scoops The Hurricane up! The fans all let out an "OH!" before Henry turns and drops Hurricane with the World's Strongest Slam! The fans begin to boo as Mark Henry pushes up to his feet. William Regal starts laughing and releases Albert. Again Mark Henry and Albert look at each other. The two move towards each other and now stand in the center of the ring. Regal steps in between the two of them and raises up both their arms.

    JR: "Damn it! Are you serious?"

    King: "Regal said he had signatures JR! Two of those signatures must be Albert AND Mark Henry. William Regal is their leader now!"


    Henry and Albert exit the ring but Regal stays behind. He stands over Hurricane, holding the clipboard high above his head.

    JR: "William Regal thinks he can remove Flair and remove the chaos on RAW. But doesn't he realize this petition is bringing out a rebellious side in everyone involved? This is just another gang attack!"

    King: "Wrong! This is a revolution JR!"


    Regal exits the ring and follows Albert and Mark Henry up the ramp.


    We go backstage where we find the WWF Tag Team Champions, Billy & Chuck. They're conversing of course with their personal stylist, Rico.

    Rico: "Listen boys. Last week I was EMBARRASSED! Embarrassed by.. Mr. Perfect. Him tapping out to Kurt Angle last night was sweet, but I want my OWN payback! That's why I got you guys a match against him."

    Billy: "Us versus Mr. Perfect?"

    Rico: "Yes! And a partner of his choosing. And after the way Chris Benoit destroyed Matt Hardy earlier, I doubt you guys will have to worry about him. It will probably be a handicap match out there!"

    Chuck: "Sounds good to me."

    Billy: "We can handle that fossil. No problem."

    Rico: "No one can beat my boys!"


    Rico reaches down and slaps the Tag Team Championships that are wrapped around each man's waist before leading "his boys" away.

    King: "We got the Tag Team Champions up next JR!"

    JR: "I'd say those boys are LUCKY to still be tag champs after running into the APA last night at Backlash. But you're right. Up next.. wait a minute."


    The backstage scene switches over to the door of WWF Co-Owner Ric Flair. The door is closed for the moment, but soon swings open slowly. Out walks Tommy Dreamer! The Innovator of Violence has a huge smile on his face as he slowly closes Flair's door behind him.

    King: "What is that bafoon Dreamer doing here!?"

    JR: "Did you forget already? Ric Flair made the trade last night that brought Tommy Dreamer to RAW."

    King: "Flair's losing it. And what is that bafoon smiling about!?"

    JR: "There's a good chance we'll find out soon King."


    RAW goes back to commercial.

    Before RAW returns, it's the SLAM OF THE WEEK! We're shown a replay last week of Mr. Perfect and Matt Hardy and Rico. Rico looks on as Kurt Angle abandons him but is scooped up and dropped with an Angle Slam by Mr. Perfect who is able to pick up the victory for his team. The commentary team mock Rico's attempt at taking on a WWF legend and the last scene is Rico laying motionless as Mr. Perfect and Matt Hardy celebrate their win.



    We come back from break looking at Ric Flair's door, just as we were when we went to commercial. Suddenly Raven walks into view and opens the door without knocking. Flair can be heard in the background.

    Flair: "Hey! What the hell Raven?"

    The camera follows behind Raven into the office. Flair is stood up behind his desk. The camera comes in to the side to catch each man's profile.

    Flair: "What Raven?"

    Raven: "You know what Flair. WHY IS DREAMER HERE!?"


    Ric Flair smirks.

    Flair: "What? Do you have some kind of problem with Tommy Dreamer?"

    Raven looks agitated. He looks down at the ground for a moment before responding.

    Raven: "I'm sure you were too busy banging St. Louis ****s to watch ECW. But Tommy Dreamer and I spent YEARS killing each other there. Which is only a fraction compared to everything we've been through our whole lives. He HATES me! And I hate him."

    The fans pop at the mention of Dreamer and Raven's bloody past. Flair continues to smile.

    Raven: "Don't act like you didn't know."

    Flair: "Of course I knew!"

    Raven: "Then why!? All this talk about stopping the chaos on RAW and you bring the one man here who wants to destroy ME!?"


    Again the fans cheer.

    Flair: "That's EXACTLY why Raven. Talking isn't going to stop anything. Discipline isn't going to stop anything. You know how I'm going to get things under control here? Action! For every action, there's a reaction Raven. You just like so many others have turned RAW into anarchy. Well no more. Sometimes.. you gotta fight fire WITH fire!"

    The fans love it. Raven just stares at Flair speechless.

    Flair: "You brought this on yourself Raven. Not just you. The same will be true for the nWo. For The Undertaker. William Regal. Everyone. RAW is MY show. And it will stay that way. That's why tonight, you will face Tommy Dreamer! Now get the hell out of my office."

    The fans love the announcement of Raven vs Tommy Dreamer! Raven continues staring at Flair. His expression never changes, and eventually he turns and leaves.


    We go out to the arena where Johnathan Coachman is standing on the stage with microphone in hand.

    JR: "Right now everyone I understand Coach is on hand for a special interview."

    Coachman: "Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome my guest at this time, Mr. Perfect."


    The fans all cheer as Mr. Perfect's music begins to play. He walks out onto the stage, dressed to compete as his match is up next. With the white towel over his shoulder, Perfect approaches Coach and his music quickly fades out.

    Coachman: "Mr. Perfect, last night you battled Kurt Angle in the match that most people are saying STOLE the show. Unfortunately you came out on the losing end of that match."

    The fans all boo.

    Coachman: "You had said on in an extensive interview on WWF.com that defeating Kurt Angle would complete your comeback and prove that you're still the best in the ring. Now that you've lost to Kurt Angle, what does that mean for your career?"

    The fans again boo. Mr. Perfect smiles. He puts his hands on his hips and looks out at the crowd as he smacks on his gum before looking back at Coach.

    Perfect: "I guess Coach.. that means I'm not the best wrestler anymore."

    The fans disagree.

    Perfect: "No, no.. that's ok. Come on guys, I'm not exactly on the right side of 40 here. "

    The gets a chuckle from the crowd.

    Perfect: "But when WWF called and gave me the opportunity to return at the Royal Rumble. I.. I didn't think that was a call I'd ever get. I vowed to make the most of the opportunity. But when my match at WrestleMania ended up getting bumped off the card, I'm not gonna lie. I was down. I wondered if I even belonged here in the WWF. But Kurt Angle.. he woke me up. He re-lit that competitive spirit. I may not be THE best anymore. But I am Perfect again. And I always will be."

    Mr. Perfect has a big smile on his face and the fans can't help but agree and cheer him on.

    Coachman: "Well you're back in action tonight. You have a match up next against the WWF Tag Team Champions. So who's your partner?"

    Mr. Perfect's eyes grow wide and his big smile spreads.

    Perfect: "I'm glad you asked Coach. I'm actually pretty excited. My partner tonight is.... Orton."

    The fans don't know what to make of that answer. Coach seems pretty confused too.

    Coachman: "Orton?"

    Perfect: "Ready for a history lesson Coach?"


    Mr. Perfect turns and points up at the titantron where an image has appeared.

    [​IMG]

    Perfect: "That man up there, is Bob Orton. He made a name for himself throughout the 50's and 60's. He reached main event status and once challenged the great Bruno Sammartino for the WWF Championship."

    The fans still really don't know what's going on. Coachman keeps the microphone pointed over at Mr. Perfect who continues on as the image on the screen changes.

    [​IMG]

    Perfect: "Now here we have Bob Orton's son. That's "Cowboy" Bob Orton. He and the cast on his arm were a staple here in the WWF throughout the 80's. He was featured in the main event of the very first WrestleMania in the corner of "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff."

    The image of "Cowboy" Bob Orton gets a little bit of a reaction from some in the crowd. He's a more recent superstar who some recognize. The image on the screen disappears.

    Perfect: "My partner tonight looks to follow in those men's footsteps, and continue the lineage of the Orton name in the World Wrestling Federation. Everyone please help me welcome my partner. He's from right here in St. Louis, Missouri!"

    This of course gets a nice pop from the crowd.

    Perfect: "Making his WWF debut.... RANDY! ORTON!"

    Some very generic rock music begins to play as the name "Randy Orton" appears on the titantron. A good looking young man in blue biker trunks with yellow stripes appears on the stage.

    [​IMG]

    Randy Orton approaches Mr. Perfect and extends his hand. Perfect takes the young man's hand and shakes it. Perfect gives Coach a nod and suddnely Mr. Perfect's music begins to play again. The two make their way down to the ring. Once in the ring both men go to separate corners. Perfect throws the towel up over his back and catches it with his other hand. Orton's righ hand grabs his left hand which is balled up in a fist and raises both arms in the air. Once both men are down they again shake hands and Perfect gives Randy a pat on the shoulder.

    "YOU LOOK SOOOOO, GOOD TO ME!" First out of the curtain is Rico. Dressed in an interesting tiger pattern suit, the WWF Tag Team Champions follow close behind. Billy and Chuck take a little time to admire each other, but eventually get down to the ring. They hand off their title belts to Rico before the match gets started.

    Rather than break up the pin, Mr. Perfect watched from the apron hoping maybe Randy would kick out, but wasn't so lucky. Perfect's head drops. He's not disappointed in Randy, but you never want to lose. Perfect enters the ring as does Chuck and Rico. Perfect goes to check on Randy and help him to his feet. Rico hands the titles off to his boys and gleefully celebrates their victory. Mr. Perfect has Randy up and their exiting the ring when Rico starts shouting at Mr. Perfect and holding up an "L" with his fingers, calling Mr. Perfect and Randy Orton losers. Billy and Chuck laugh on. Randy Orton steps forward and shoves Rico back! The fans "ohhhh!" while Billy and Chuck just looked stunned. Rico looks disgusted. He pulls down on his suit jacket then steps forward and SLAPS Randy! Again the react and again Billy and Chuck are laughing. Randy Orton looks down while holding his face. Mr. Perfect reaches for Randy's arm, but Randy lunges forward and tackles Rico! Randy starts throwing wild punches down at the stylist who tries his best to cover up. Mr. Perfect quickly pulls Randy off of Rico while Billy and Chuck slide out of the ring and pull Rico out with them. The Tag Team Champions assist Rico up the ramp as he holds his head. Mr. Perfect watches the three leave and actually starts to chuckle. He looks back and Randy and raises his arm as Orton's generic rock music begins to play.

    JR: "A very interesting debut for that young man Randy Orton."

    King: "Glad to see that Mr. Perfect is teaching this kid to be a sore loser! There's no room for that kind of behavior here JR!"

    JR: "That's your opinion King. I personally can't wait to see more of Randy Orton."


    We again go backstage to Ric Flair's office. He's looking at a TV off to the side of his desk that's playing RAW. On the screen we see Mr. Perfect and Randy Orton in the ring. Behind Flair stands Arn Anderson.

    Anderson: "Kid has some potential."

    Flair: "He does."


    Flair stares at the monitor for another second, then turns in his chair. He now sits straight at his desk. Arn is standing to his left, but Flair never looks at him.

    Flair: "Arn."

    Anderson: "Yes Ric?"

    Flair: "Go find The Undertaker. Tell him to come to my office now."


    The fans start buzzing. Arn Anderson on the other hand looks a little concerned.

    Anderson: "You sure about that Ric? I don't know if Undertaker coming back here is.."

    Flair: "I'm damn sure."

    Anderson: "You got it."


    Arn leaves the room and Flair watches him leave. JR questions why Flair would call for The Undertaker as we go to commercial.



    We come back from break looking at the packed arena. Raven's music begins to play and we switch over to a few of the entire stage. Raven slowly comes walking out into view. He stops at the top of the ramp and looks around at all the fans before continuing down the ramp. Raven makes his way inside the ring then turns and falls into the far corner before sliding down into a seated position. Raven has an anxious look on his face as we go to a replay from Backlash last night. Their post match images after Edge had defeated Raven. We see Raven low blow Edge as he stood in the corner holding up both the United States and Hardcore championships. We then see Raven setting Edge up for another Ravenflow DDT. But the next image shows Dreamer hitting Raven from behind with the Kendo Stick, then again in the face. An image of a little blood streaming down Raven's face is shown, before finally a picture of Edge hitting Raven with another Spear. The replay ends and we see Raven. He's looking up at the titantron. He just saw the same pictures, and now his foot is tapping.

    Suddenly Raven's music is cut off by the music of Tommy Dreamer. Tommy gets a nice reaction from the crowd as he comes stomping down the ramp. He looks ready to fight, and Raven notices. He pushes up to his feet as Tommy slides into the ring. Both men charge each other and collide center ring. They fall to the mat and fists are flying. The referee tries to separate the two but is unsuccessful. The two superstars roll under the bottom rope and right out of the ring. Dreamer more or less lands on Raven which gives him the advantage as he connects with a few uninterrupted shots. He gets to his feet and brings Raven up with him before throwing him as hard as he can towards the barricade. Raven's stomach crashes into the wall and he tumbles over into the crowd. Tommy Dreamer follows behind, stepping over the barricade. Dreamer is caught off guard as Raven takes a cup from a nearby fan and throws beer in Dreamer's face! Tommy goes to wipe his eyes, but Raven grabs a handful of hair and starts throwing punches into Tommy's head. It takes a moment for Tommy to regroup, but he eventually reaches out and does the same.

    The fist fight continues. Up the aisle the two go. Raven attempts to whip Dreamer into a wall, but it's reverse and Raven himself crashes into the wall and crumbles down to his hands and knees. The fans near the scene are hyped and loving every second of the fight. Tommy gets caught up in their emotion and throws out both arms and lets out a scream with his signature pose. Surrounding fans do the pose as well. Tommy reaches down and grabs as much of Raven's hair as he can. He pulls him up to his feet and sets him up for the DDT, but Raven drops to his knee's and thrusts his arm up between Tommy's legs for a low blow. Tommy falls to his knees while Raven stands back up. He quickly throws his leg out and kicks Dreamer in the face. Tommy falls over to his side and Raven turns and takes off through the fans. He eventually disappears out of the arena. There's some drool coming out of the corner of Dreamer's mouth. The low blow has left him in agonizing pain, but he starts pushing up to his feet.

    JR: "Well so much for that match. Raven wanted no part of Tommy Dreamer."

    King: "Why should he JR? Raven left that cesspool called ECW and became a WWF Superstar! Now the ghosts of ECW's past have come to try and ruin his career. It's not fair. Ric Flair is out of control."


    Backstage Kurt Angle has his back turned to the camera. In front him though is a monitor. Visible on the monitor are the closing moments from his match last night. He has Mr. Perfect in the ankle lock, and the legend has no choice but to tap out.

    Angle: "Hahaha yes! Tap out!"

    Terri Runnels steps into view with a microphone.

    Terri: "Kurt. If I could have a word."

    Kurt looks over at Terri surprised. He pauses the the video playing on the monitor before turning to face her.

    Angle: "Did you see that last night? Mr. Perfect.. tapping out. I could watch it forever."

    Terri: "Yes Kurt. It was an amazing match. But what about tonight? You're giving a State of the Union Address. What do you intend to say?"

    Angle: "Look Tori. This isn't going to be some cute speech. Unlike the President of these United States, Kurt Angle is a true American Hero. And unlike the President, when I address the Union.. it won't just be a bunch of hot air. I'm going to get something done. Something I deserve."


    Kurt starts rewinding the tape and presses play just as he's applying the Ankle Lock on Mr. Perfect.

    Angle: "You'll just have to wait and find out."

    He goes back to watching.

    Terri: "Thank you Kurt."

    Angle: "Come on you son of a... TAP!"


    We go back to Ric Flair's office. He still sits at his desk and is on the phone. Out of view the door can be heard opening. Ric looks up, and Arn Anderson steps into frame. He looks at Ric, then walks behind his desk and stands by his side. Ric lets whoever he's talking to on the phone that he'll have to call them back. He hangs up the phone and looks up at his friend. Arn gives Ric a nod, and at that moment the door can be heard opening again. In walks The Undertaker. He steps to the desk, and Flair comes up to his feet. Undertaker stands proud with the World Heavyweight Championship over his shoulder in perfect view of the camera for the whole world to see. Through his sunglasses Undertaker stares at Flair, who is looking right back. But eventually Flair stares down at the World Title. There's a new name plate across the bottom of it that reads "Undertaker".

    Undertaker: "What's wrong? You mad that it looks better on me than it ever did on you?"

    Ric's eyes shoot back up at Undertaker.

    Flair: "Thank you for coming Taker."

    Undertaker: "What do ya want Flair?"

    Flair: "Are you in a hurry? You shouldn't be. In case you haven't noticed, you don't have a match tonight."


    This gets a mixed reaction from the audience. The Undertaker smirks.

    Undertaker: "I'm alright with that. The World Heavyweight Champion deserves a night off."

    Flair: "It's not a night off Taker. You have homework."

    Undertaker: "Homework huh?"

    Flair: "Yeah. I want you to pay attention. I told someone else just a little bit ago that RAW is MY show, and it's going to stay that way. I'm prepared to fight fire with fire."


    This gets a nice pop from the crowd. But Undertaker doesn't appear too impressed.

    Undertaker: "Good for you Flair. I'm sure Raven is really sorry."

    Flair: "So you did see! Good. That's good Taker. But that's not all. If the nWo come out of hiding, they'll learn the same lesson. Tonight William Regal will learn the same lesson. My hand has been forced. I'm done letting the inmates run the asylum."


    The Undertaker just shakes his head. He removes his sunglasses and places them on his head tucked behind his bandanna.

    Undertaker: "You bring me all the way over here to threaten me Flair?"

    Flair smiles.

    Flair: "No way Taker. Just wanted to make sure you do your homework. You should pay special attention to the main event. I'd hate to be William Regal when Stone Cold Steve Austin comes down to that ring."

    The Undertaker scoffs.

    Undertaker: "I ain't scared of Austin. Not one bit. I beat him last night just like I said I would. That's why I'm World Heavyweight Champion!"

    Ric continues to smile.

    Flair: "Well I'm glad you're not scared Taker. That would make for a very disappointing rematch."

    Undertaker: "What rematch?"


    The fans start cheering.

    Flair: "Your rematch. Against Stone Cold Steve Austin. For the World Heavyweight Championship!"

    The fans cheer even louder! Undertaker just stares at Flair, his upper lip curled up.

    Flair: "You versus Stone Cold, NEXT WEEK ON RAW.. in a LUMBERJACK MATCH!"

    Undertaker: WHAT!?"


    The crowd roars.

    Flair: "No BS this time big boy. I'm gonna have every available RAW superstar around that ring. The nWo can't help you now."

    The Undertaker huffs and puffs before turning his head like he's cracking his neck. He stares a hole through Flair.

    Undertaker: "I don't need any damn help."

    Flair: "We'll see."


    The World Champion grunts and leaves the office. Flair is all smiles and behind him Arn is as well.

    JR: "What a blockbuster announcement!"

    King: "No! No! No! This is ridiculous. Undertaker already beat Stone Cold! He's the World Heavyweight Champion!"

    JR: "He's gonna have to do it again if he wants to stay World Heavyweight Champion. What a main event that's going to be next week!"


    This sends us to another commercial break.



    JR: "Folks if you're just joining us, or if perhaps you missed what happened before the break.. Ric Flair called The Undertaker to his office. Among other things, he informed The Undertaker that next week on RAW he'll be defending his new World Heavyweight Championship!"

    [​IMG]

    JR: "It's official. In a rematch from Backlash, The Undertaker meets Stone Cold Steve Austin. The World Heavyweight Championship is on the line, but this time, it's a LUMBERJACK MATCH!"

    King: "In other words, it's totally unfair! Ric Flair should be treating The World Heavyweight Champion better than THIS!"

    JR: "It's absolutely fair King. The Undertaker isn't carrying that World Title around tonight if it's not for the interference of the nWo! That won't be the case next week. He'll have to beat Stone Cold Steve Austin on his own!"

    King: "You're assuming Stone Cold is gonna get past William Regal tonight JR."

    JR: "Well you're right. That World Title rematch is next week. But tonight Stone Cold will be in action against William Regal."

    JR: "Regal threw his petition in Ric Flair's face at the top of the show and promised to have Flair removed from power in the WWF. Flair responded by setting up this main event for tonight!


    [​IMG]

    King: "An absolute abuse of power JR. Ric Flair couldn't handle a little bit of truth being thrown at him, and now William Regal is being fed to Stone Cold to let out all his aggression and anger on. It's unacceptable!"

    JR: "Like I said earlier King, if you have such a big problem with Flair, why don't you go sign that petition?"

    King: "Maybe I will."


    We get a look inside the ring where we see Test! He's dressed to compete and stands in the far corner of the ring.

    Yo! It's me, it's me.. it's D-D-P! The camera swings over to the stage where see Diamond Dallas Page come walking out. He has a huge smile on his face as always before throwing up the Diamond Cutter hand sign. He throws his arms down, shouting BANG!, before making his way down to the ring. Once both men are in the ring, the match gets underway.

    Test gets to his feet as his music begins to play. The referee goes to grab his arm, but Test yanks it away and bucks at the ref who turns and flees. Test turns towards the announce area and starts shouting for a microphone. Lilian Garcia hands him hers and his music cuts out. The young Canadian gets his breathing under control.

    Test: "That.. was my FIRST win on RAW!"

    The fans actually boo this statement.

    Test: "That's fine. I don't care if you like it. But you know who loves it? A GREAT man. A GREAT leader. He's my leader. And soon he'll be all of yours."

    The fans boo even louder.

    Test: "WILLIAM REGAL gave me a good slap of reality! I've been sitting here for a MONTH waiting for my opportunity. Waiting for Ric Flair to give a crap about me. When instead.. I should have been TAKING my opportunities!"

    DDP rolls out of the ring and the referee assists him in leaving the ringside area. He's holdings his jaw and shaking his head, still clearly shaken up from the big boot. Test notices DDP leaving.

    Test: "Heh.. yeah. That's what I'm all about."

    He points over at DDP.

    Test: "I'm not here to make ANYONE ELSE look good. If you get in my way, that will be you.. trying to remember what day it is while you count how many teeth you have left in your head!"

    Test throws the microphone down and glares at the hard camera. His music begins to play again as we go to a replay of him leveling DDP with the big boot!

    King: "Test has seen the light JR! What a historic night!"

    JR: "Historic.. or sad? How many superstars are getting drunk on William Regal's kool- aid?"

    King: "The only person drunk around here JR.. is RIC FLAIR! He's drunk with power. Well and probably Stone Cold. He's always drunk."

    JR: "I'm gonna be drunk if I have to listen to you keep complaining about Ric Flair."


    [​IMG]

    King: "Wait JR! It's time!"

    JR: "Almost King. Off the heels of his victory last night against Mr. Perfect, Kurt Angle is going to deliver his State of the Union Address. Kurt has promised to actually "get something done"? What does the Olympic Champion have to say? We'll find out next.


    RAW goes to commercial.

    Before RAW returns the Backlash logo and graphic flashes across the screen. In the corner of the screen it says "Last Night". It's a replay from the closing moments of Kurt Angle vs Mr. Perfect.

    BACKLASH REPLAY
    We see Kurt Angle celebrating his victory before the replay ends and we return to RAW.



    We're looking at the arena, and immediately noticeable is the change to the ring. The mat has been covered with a red velvet mat or rug. There are red, white and blue streamers wrapped around all the ring ropes, and American flags hang down over the ring posts on the outside of the ring. Soon Kurt Angle's theme begins to play and the Olympic Hero makes his way out onto the stage. Dressed in track pants and one of his own Kurt Angle T-shirts, he stops at the top of the ramp to throw up his arms. Pointing up at the sky, he's surrounded by blasts of red, white and blue pyro. After three blasts Kurt makes his way down the ramp and the camera closes in. As always his Gold Medal is around his neck and proudly on display as it rests against his chest. Of course the fans let Angle know what they think of him, chanting "You Suck" in tune with his music. Kurt enters the ring and approaches a podium that is set up in the middle. There's a microphone waiting for him, and after a few moments Kurt allows his music to fade out and he takes the mic. Kurt isn't able to speak right away though, as the fans won't stop booing him. But he's all smiles.

    Angle: "Please. Please."

    Kurt's looking for the raucous crowd to calm and listen to him speak. But this only enrages them.

    Angle: "Look! I know you guys wanna watch that replay of Mr. Perfect tapping out in the Ankle Lock for the rest of the night. And hey, so do I! But we can't. There's important business to discuss."

    The fans just boo more. But eventually it does quiet enough for Kurt to talk over them.

    Angle: "Despite the problems this country faces, I'm still very proud to be American and to be a citizen of these United States!"

    This gets a nice pop from the patriotic crowd.

    Angle: "The same can be said about Monday Night RAW. This brand has been drowning in adversity since the brand extension took effect."

    The fans now again boo.

    Angle: "We've all been subject to gang warfare, questionable leadership.. and now a fraction of the superstars are looking to secede from RAW and the Flair regime. But I still believe in the RAW brand! There is still hope for WWF's flagship show."

    At this point Kurt's getting mixed reactions. Most the fans can't stand him. But others can't help but acknowledge the chaos on RAW.

    Angle: "I'd like to share a story with all of you. Back in 1996, our country faced dark times with no one to look up to. But one summer day in the heat of Atlanta.. a hero emerged. He defeated the best the world had to offer and stood above them all, as an American hero!"

    Kurt is obviously referring to his Gold Medal victory at the 1996 Olympics. The fans have heard this story too many times to care, and again boo Angle.

    Angle: "Fast forward six years, and what's changed? There's no guiding light for all you to follow. To believe in. RAW has become a dark place. A chaotic place. A place.. that needs a hero. Kurt Angle.. is that hero."

    The fans just keep booing. A small "You Suck" chant picks back up, but Kurt pushes on.

    Angle: "I've always been your hero. Your champion. But as the darkness grows I'm forced to step up more than before. I have to go above and beyond anything I've ever done to rescue RAW! Just like in 1996 when I saved America and stood tall with the Gold around my neck.."

    Kurt holds up his Gold Medal.

    Angle: "..the only way I can save RAW is to conquer all those who look to tear us down, and be left standing when the dust settles.. with GOLD!"

    Guess what the fans do? They boo.

    Angle: "UNDERTAKER! STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN! I, Kurt Angle, challenge which ever one of you wins your rematch next week. I challenge you to a match for the World Heavyweight Championship at Judgment Day!"

    That's big news. The fans are excited for the possible main event of the next Pay-Per-View.

    Angle: "I shouldn't have taken no for an answer last month when Ric Flair put me out of the title picture. I should have fought harder for all of you. Your American Hero needs to be your Champion. And I will be! At Judgment Day I.."

    YOU THINK YOU KNOW ME?...​


    Kurt Angle is cut off mid-sentence as the entrance music of United States Champion EDGE rips throughout the arena. The fans all roar with applause as the young superstars comes jogging out onto the stage. His eyes are hidden behind a pair of sunglasses, but his electric smile can be seen from a mile away. With the U.S. Championship over his shoulder Edge continues down to the ring where he joins Kurt Angle. As Edge's music fades out he asks for a microphone, but Kurt doesn't seem to happy that he's been interrupted.

    Angle: "Hey! What are you doin? Get outta here. I'm addressing America!"

    Edge chuckles and finally takes the mic that's handed to him. He walks back Kurt over to the side of the ring facing the stage. He pushes his sunglasses up onto his head and is looking right at Angle.

    Edge: "Kurt, Kurt, Kurt.. you got it ALL wrong buddy. These people already have a champion to be a proud of. A champion that's proud to represent them! And Kurt, you're lookin at him."

    The fans cheer Edge on. He's definitely their champion.

    Edge: "Now I understand you.."

    Angle: "NO! Stop, shut up!"


    The fans fall right back to the boos.

    Angle: "You've got these people brainwashed! HIM!? HE is YOUR Champion?"

    Kurt points at Edge, and the fans cheer in approval as he holds up the United States Championship!

    Angle: "Oh my gosh. This is worse than I thought. Guys.. he's CANADIAN! He's not one of you! He can't be your hero. He's just using you! This man is a fraud! You need me! America needs me, hell.. the WORLD needs me!"

    Edge just chuckles at Kurt's comments.

    Edge: "You crack me up man. Did you already forget how I became the United States Champion? I beat you Kurt."

    This gets a big pop from the crowd.

    Edge: "I pinned you in THIS ring, 1. 2. 3. I'm not a fraud. I didn't steal anything. I've EARNED everything I've ever had or won in this business. And I won't pretend that you haven't done the same thing. You're a hell of a competitor Kurt. But do you really think you can just come out here and claim a championship match? I think not."

    Angle: "I don't care what you think Edge! Neither should these people. I'm sure you were pretty banged up from you little hardcore fight last night. But after that, I WRESTLED Mr. Perfect. I BEAT Mr. Perfect. I made Mr. Perfect TAP OUT and I proved ONCE AGAIN that I am THE best wrestler in the World. I'm the only hope these people have to return RAW to it's former glory."

    Edge: "Some of that may be true Kurt. Hell all of it may be true. But you know what else is true? You.. haven't beaten ME!"


    The fans are basically being pulled back and forth. They cheer with every point Edge makes and boo at just about anything Kurt says.

    Angle: "I'll beat you right now damn it!"

    Edge: "Oh I'd love to, but I have a more civil idea. A grander idea! Next week. You and me. Kurt Angle versus Edge in a Number One Contender's match. The winner goes on to Judgment Day to challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship!"


    The fans LOVE this idea.

    Edge: "What do'ya say Kurt? Think you can stand tall against me? You willing to earn it?"

    Edge extends his hand. Kurt looks down at the hand then back up at Edge. The fans are chanting! They're imploring Kurt to take the challenge...

    WOOOOOOO!​


    Wait. Ric Flair? The fans just keep on cheering as the man in charge of RAW comes walking out onto the stage. With microphone in hand, Ric remains on the stage. His music fades out but fans continuing Woooing around the arena.

    Flair: "I just had to come out here. You two got this place ROCKIN!"

    The fans just keep cheering.

    Flair: "Kurt I uh, I appreciate you wanting to save these people. But I think I speak for everyone when I say all you care about is YOURSELF and becoming World Champion."

    This pops the audience even more. Kurt shakes his head and insists he wants to save RAW!

    Flair: "But I can't say I agree that giving you a World Title match is the way to do that. I definitely agree with Edge that a World Title match should be earned. And that's exactly what you're going to have to do. But Edge.. I'm sorry man. That's no an opportunity I can give you right now."

    Edge looks confused, and so are the fans. A pocket of them start to boo.

    Flair: "It's nothing personal. I think you're awesome! You've already exceeded all my expectations. But you're the United States Champion, and I need you to focus on being United States Champion. Especially with everything going on."

    The fans boo some more as Flair reaches into his jacket pocket and pulls out a folded piece of paper. He opens it up.

    Flair: "I was faxed a full copy of the complaint William Regal has filed against me that goes along with his petition. One of the first things listed is the "unjust stripping of his European Championship" he goes on to babble about you and the United States Championship. Edge I need you. Next week on RAW I can't give you that Number One Contender's match because I already have one signed for you. Next week, I want you to shut William Regal up!"

    The fans start to cheer again. Edge still seems a little put off, but he listens.

    Flair: "I want you to go out there and beat him again, One-on-One. Disprove all this talk about him losing to you last month being unfair and unjust. You do that, and I'll make sure you pushed up to the front of the line for an opportunity to challenge for the World Heavyweight Championship."

    The seem satisfied with Flair's reasoning and Edge nods in agreement. Kurt Angle though just starts laughing. He waves bye at Edge but Edge points back at him. The two are exchanging words away from their microphones, but it seems Edge is promising Kurt he will be the next World Heavyweight Champion. Edge exits the ring and heads up the ramp.

    Angle: "Well everybody there he goes, "YOUR" Champion. I told you he wasn't here for you! Me! Kurt Angle. I'm the Hero you deserve. I'm going to take that World Heavyweight Championship, and I will save RAW!"

    Edge makes it to the top of the ramp. Flair extends his hand and Edge shakes it. Flair says something reaffirming to Edge without the microphone and Edge exits through the curtain. Flair turns his attention back to the ring.

    Flair: "Slow down Kurt. At any point did you hear me say that YOU are the number one contender?"

    Angle: "But.. Edge can't.. I already issued the challenge! I don't care what you say FLAIR! I challenged Undertaker or Stone Cold and I bet they'll accept."

    Flair: "Right there! That's the problem! No one cares what I say. That's why I'm done talking. I've told everyone tonight I've gonna fight fire with fire. And you're no different Kurt. I don't know what the World Title match is going to look like at Judgment Day, but I can promise it won't involve YOU being HANDED a title shot."


    The fans keep cheering. Angle looks dejected. You can see the wheels turning behind his eyes. What can he say to convince Flair that he's the right superstar to challenge for the title?

    Angle: "Okay Flair, how about.."

    DA-NUH-NUH-NUH-NUH!..​


    Kurt Angle is cut off again.. this time it's CHRIS BENOIT! The fans all come to their feet. The Rabid Wolverine comes marching out onto stage and walks right past Ric Flair. He goes down to the ring and slides under the bottom rope. Benoit pushes up to his feet and makes his way towards Kurt. Chris pushes the podium over and it tumbles to the mat. He pushes his body right into Kurt and now the two men stand nose to nose. Kurt stumbles back a bit before stands his ground and pushes back against Benoit. The two are jaw- jacking and the fans are freaking out! Benoit starts making motions around his waist that he wants to be champion.

    Flair: "Whoa! Whoa! Everybody just calm down. Ha ha. I think I just had a great idea."

    Benoit and Angle step back a bit. They're no longer nose to nose, but remain face to face.

    Flair: "I can't say that I'm any closer to knowing what the World Title match at Judgment Day will be. But I do know that AT Judgment Day. We're gonna have Kurt Angle.. versus Chris Benoit! In a Number One Contenders match! That sounds good to all of you?"

    The fans roar in approval! Benoit's expression doesn't change, but Kurt slowly shakes his head. It's not what he was hoping for when he came out here, but it's better than nothing. He has an opportunity.

    Flair: "Then it's official. You guys try not to kill each other before Judgment Day."

    Flair's music starts to play and a big smile spreads across his face. He turns and exits through the curtain, leaving Benoit and Angle behind in the ring still shouting at each other.

    JR: "Wow what an announcement! Ric Flair has made not one but TWO huge matches! Next week Edge will take on William Regal, and our first official match for Judgment Day will be a Number One Contenders match between Kurt Angle and the newly returned Chris Benoit!"

    King: "Flair should have just given Angle the title match, it's not long he doesn't deserve it! Do you need to see that clip of him tapping out Mr. Perfect again JR?"

    JR: "No I was there last night King. I saw it first hand. What I can't wait to see is these two lock up in a few weeks in Nashville. It's gonna be incredible!"


    We go backstage and see a huddle of superstars backstage watching one of the monitors. William Regal is front and center, and he actually has a smile on his face. Surrounding him are Albert, Mark Henry, and Test. The three superstars who in one way or another pledged their allegiance to Regal tonight and most likely the three superstars that he has gotten to sign his petition so far.

    JR: "Yeah Regal may be smiling now, but I'm not sure how long that'll last."

    [​IMG]

    King: "Why does everyone assume that William Regal is going to have such a huge problem with Stone Cold tonight? Yeah he's angry, but Regal is tougher than most JR."

    JR: "This may be the first time all night that I've agreed with you King. There's been a lot of talk about matches for next week, but we're far from done here tonight. Still to come, William Regal with take on Stone Cold Steve Austin. And that ladies and gentlemen is our main event!"


    We take another commercial break.



    RAW returns with JR and King briefly recapping Kurt Angle's State of the Union Address and the ramifications that came from it. They stop talking once they're interrupted by the music of the WWF Women's Champion, Jazz! The champion wastes no time making her way to the ring, but she's not alone. Coming out alongside her is Molly Holly. The two enter the ring and Jazz hands the Women's title off to the referee.

    Out next is Lita! Perhaps the WWF's most popular diva. She makes her way out onto the stage but doesn't go much further. A few seconds later, her music is interrupted by the music of Trish Stratus! The former Women's Champion joins Lita on the stage and both make their way down to the ring. All fours Divas keep their distance until the bell rings.

    Lita pins the Women's Champion! Lita and Trish worked together like a well oiled machine and both look ecstatic as the referee raises their arms in victory. We're shown a brief replay of the Stratusfaction-Moonsault combo that put the Women's Champ away. Lita and Trish are all smiles in the ring as they watch Jazz retreat up the ramp with her title. JR questions if Lita has jumped to the front of the line for a Women's Title shot.

    We're only a few minutes away from our main event as we go backstage. We see Ric Flair and standing before him is a group of arena security.

    Flair: "Listen boys. In this match tonight between Stone Cold and William Regal, I don't want anybody involved BUT Stone Cold and William Regal. No Undertaker. No nWo. None of Regal's new goons. I want ALL of you on red alert. Keep your eyes and ears open. Anything can happen out there.. but I don't want it to. Got it?"

    All the security guards give Flair a nod and he dismisses them. JR and King hype the main event that will be coming up right after the break.



    JR: "Welcome back to RAW everyone. That was the last commercial break of the evening and we're just moments away from our main event. But a lot has happened tonight that's going to effect the next couple of weeks here on RAW! For example, next week's main event!"

    [​IMG]

    JR: "In a return match from Backlash, The Undertaker will meet Stone Cold Steve Austin for the World Heavyweight Championship. But this time.. it will be a LUMBERJACK MATCH! No interference and no chaos this time around."

    King: "No chaos? Do you even here yourself JR? The ring is going to be surrounded by all the RAW superstars! During a World Heavyweight Championship match! That doesn't sound like chaos to you?"

    JR: "It sounds like they're going to be there to prevent chaos King. But that's not all next week."


    [​IMG]

    JR: "Ric Flair was made fully aware of the petition and complaints made against him tonight by William Regal and company. In response not only did he put Regal in his match coming up next against Stone Cold Steve Austin.. but next week he'll meet the man everything started with. Edge's chase of the United States Championship started with a win over Regal on the same night Regal's European Championship was retired. Flair has requested Edge "shut Regal up". Will he do it?"

    King: "Read my lips JR. Not a chance! William Regal has started a revolution to better RAW. You can't shut up a revolution. It's only a matter of time before Edge and everyone else is following suit."


    JR: "Edge was pretty busy tonight, interrupting Kurt Angle's State of the Union Address and spurring a conversation that revolved around earning the World Heavyweight Championship match that Kurt Angle was simply asking for. The returning Chris Benoit didn't have much to say, but he threw his hat in the ring so to speak, and that has given us our first match for Judgement Day."

    [​IMG]

    JR: "In four weeks Chris Benoit and Kurt Angle will meet in Nashville to determine a number one contender for the World Title. These two are no strangers to each other, and with so much at stake, they're sure to pull out all the stops to come out victorious."

    King: "Chris Benoit can pull out whatever he wants. But the results will be the same as Backlash. Kurt Angle's opponent will TAP OUT, and Angle will continue his quest to save RAW! He's a true hero JR!"


    The commentary team's conversation comes to an end as the music of William Regal starts to play. For the first time tonight Regal appears dressed in his ring gear. He comes to the ring alone, but of course carries with him the clipboard that holds the petition to remove Ric Flair from power on RAW. Regal gets to the ring and quickly motions for a microphone.

    Regal: "Stone Cold. I know you're about to come down here but I just needed to say something to you before you did."

    The fans start booing. They've been dying to see Stone Cold all night and are quite frankly sick of William Regal talking.

    Regal: "What I have here is a petition. If I can fill this petition with signatures, then Ric Flair will be.."

    *GLASS SHATTERS*​


    The. Arena. EXPLODES! As Austin comes marching down to the ring in full ring gear the St. Louis faithful welcome him with a shower of applause and middle fingers. Austin gets to the ring in no time and as always hits all four corners. Each time he throws up his arms and flips the birds high. He hops down out of the fourth corner and removes his vest. He throws it out of the ring and starts to approach his opponent.

    Regal: "Wait! Austin just listen to me! A superstar of your magnitude signing this petition would go a long way in helping get rid of Ric Flair for good! He's proven himself to be an unstable, incompetent leader for the RAW brand! Please, just look at it."

    William extends the petition out to Austin, who quickly slaps the clipboard down to the mat and reaches his right arm out to flip Regal off. The fans pop big as Austin turns way and walks to his corner. Regal appears very frustrated as he picks up the clipboard and hands both it and the microphone back out of the ring.

    Again the audience explodes in applause and now celebration. As soon as Austin's music begins to play he pushes up to his knees and rips the brass knuckles off of Regal's fist. He throws them out of the ring and mounts Regal before going to town on him with right hands. This sends Test, Mark Henry and Albert into a frenzy as they quickly jump over the barricade and bull rush the security team with ease. The three men slide into the ring and tackle Austin! At that moment the remaining security guards who stand in front of Undertaker abandon their post and hit the ring to try and break up the assault. The other four guards eventually join them and now all eight have restrained Regal's comrades. Stone Cold starts pushing up to his feet when suddenly..

    The screen goes grey.

    There's some static.

    Finally in a voice deeper than any other you've ever heard before speaks the words "NEW-nuh-nuh NEW! WORLD! ORDER!"

    The crowd doesn't know what to do! They're all freaking out. The security team is already having a hard enough time restraining three pissed off superstars in the ring. The Undertaker is still up on the ramp and slowly turns to see the nWo making their way out onto the stage. Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and X-Pac all arrive and start down the ramp. They come to a stop, all three in front of The Undertaker. The Undertaker's arms drop to his side. He holds the World Title in one hand during the stare down. But eventually.. the nWo walk past him. They head down the ramp towards the ring and all Undertaker does is turn his head over his shoulder and watch them leave. The nWo all stand outside the ring.

    Regal: "Retreat! Get out NOW!"

    The color suddenly returns and the nWo's music fades out. Regal has recovered outside the ring and has a microphone. He shouts for his guys to bail from the ring, which they eventually do. After Test, Henry and Albert leave, the security team turns and forms a full wall along the ring ropes facing the nWo. Regal and his boys go back over the barricade and leave through the crowd as Nash, Hall and X-Pac step up on the apron. Nash counts the number of security guards jokingly. But before either side makes a move, Stone Cold lunges over the security guards and catches Nash in the face with a right hand! The fans pop huge, but the fight is on! Half the security guards turn to restrain Stone Cold, but Hall and X-Pac quickly enter the ring and charge the other security guards. Nash eventually joins them in the ring and the nWo and Austin are now fighting.. security guards. They're going to get rid of everyone in their way, then destroy each other!

    At that moment, Ric Flair along with Arn Anderson comes sprinting down the ramp with steel chairs in hand! They fly right past Undertaker and slide into the ring. Arn connects with a chair shot into the back of Scott Hall while Ric Flair swings wildly at Nash and X-Pac and honestly anybody in his way as everybody but Stone Cold clear the ring. The bodies of security guards are laying all over the ring side area as the nWo regroup at the bottom of the ramp. The Undertaker is still half way up looking on as Ric Flair and Arn Anderson defend the ring with their weapons as Scott Hall lay on the mat. Austin realizes what has happened and stands behind the both of them. He's exhausted, and eventually he and Flair's eyes lock. Flair isn't stupid. He's been stunned more than once already and keeps the chair locked and loaded ready to swing. There's a tense stare down when suddenly, Austin takes a large steps forward and quickly kicks Scott Hall in the gut as he gets to his feet before hitting him with the Stone Cold Stunner! Hall flies back towards the ropes, and his nWo brethren reach in and pull him out of the ring. The nWo leave through the crowd with X-Pac screaming back at Flair and Austin. The Undertaker turns and leaves up the ramp, soon disappearing behind the curtain. As RAW comes to a close Flair and Arn leave the ring also heading up the ramp leaving Austin.

    JR: "Ric Flair has made great strides tonight in regaining control here on RAW, even putting himself in harms way! There's a great turn in power slowly shifting here on RAW, but the stakes get even higher next week for all involved. Especially that man Stone Cold. Can he become the World Heavyweight Champion!?"

    Stone Cold calls for a few beers and RAW goes off the air with him smashing them up the corner and pouring the cans down towards his face, trying to catch as much in his mouth as he can.
