    I decided to put the tournament and booking sections into one and this will be a tournament but I will be determining the winners as if I were booking.

    Greatest Superstar of Wrestling Tournament Week 1

    Ok this is going to be a tournament to see who is the greatest wrestler of all time. In this tournament we are considering that none of the people have died and all of them are wrestling as if in their prime.

    Raw Week 1

    We open the show with the usual fireworks and then we cut straight to JR & King

    JR: Ladies and Gentlemen we are told that their will be a mega announcement tonight by the chairman of the board Mr. McMahon.

    King: Well, if it's coming from Mr. McMahon its sure to be a big announcement he don't dissapoint

    No Chance in Hell blares from the speakers as the Chairman makes his way to the ring.

    Lilian: Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome the Chairman of World Wrestling Entertainment Mr. McMahon

    Vince is strutting down the aisle with a big smile on his face and seems to be in a good mood, however the crowd is booing him out of the building.

    Vince grabs the mic and waits for the crowd to settle down. He raises it as if to speak, but the crowd boos even louder.

    Vince: SHUT UP!!!!

    Vince looks taken aback by how hateful he just sounded.

    Vince: I I'm sorry I mean please could I have a minute of your time. Please just a minute because I promise after I make my announcement you will never boo me again. The other day I was sitting in my office in Stamford and I was getting bored so I decided to surf the internet, and while looking amongst other things.

    Fans start a Vince is a perv chant which causes Vince to look down in shame. He then looks around annoyed, because he is wanting to talk again.

    Vince: As I was saying I was surfing through the internet and I thought why don't I just take a peak at these websites that say they know everything about wrestling they think they know the in's and out's when I promise they don't know half of what they think they do. While looking at these sites I decided to go on some message boards to see what people think of the WWE, and all I read was WWE sucks, WWE needs less talking, WWE guys can't wrestle like ROH guys. When I read that it hurt it really did, because even though I can be an asshole sometimes I really do care what the fans think. Not because I want them to be happy, but because I know if they are not happy with my product they will spend their money elsewhere and I don't like losing money. So once I read that I wasn't been able to sleep, I wasn't able to sleep, I was constipated. I didn't know what to do, so I asked Stephanie, Shane, & Linda. They had no idea what to do. I kept thinking and thinking and thinking and then it came to me I had the best Idea ever. Why not listen to the fans and give them what they want....wrestling. So I go back to those message boards I was reading earlier and started seeing topics on who is the best wrestler ever thats when I knew what I had to do. So I made some phone calls and made some deals and when it was all said and done and everyone was on board I decided it was time to tell you the fans my idea. So you want to know my great idea?

    Crowd cheers wildly

    Vince: Ok, here it is. Starting tonight in this very ring and going on for the next few months will be a tournament to decide who is the greatest wrestler ever. Now you may be thinking how are we going to tell the best wrestler ever if only Raw Wrestlers are involved, well thats where the phone calls come in. You see I have called some old friends as well as some new friends and starting tonight and every day of the week for the next few months there will be wrestling on TV. Not only is WWE involved in this tournament, but I have ROH, TNA, & International Wrestlers in it, as well as I called up Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff and both are willing to get some of their old WCW and ECW wrestlers to participate. So here's how it will go, each region will have seperate tournaments and then once each region has a winner we will go to WrestleMania where there will be a 8 man tournament involving the winners of the regions once it gets down to the final to they will compete in a new match I like to call the 3 Stages of Hell in a Cell (details on the way that match works will be told later). So, I don't know about you but Im ready to get this thing started for Raw so let's get this tournament underway. Get me a ref out here.

    Referee runs to the ring as Mr. McMahon's music plays and we cut to commercial.

    Winner: Chyna

    Chyna grabs the mic

    Chyna: That right there is just the beginning I'm going to show all the fans and the boys in the back that a woman can dominate this sport just as good as any man.

    JR: Ladies and Gentlemen we hope you are enjoying the first round of what looks to be a very exciting tournament.

    King: Thats right JR and this is just the first night this week.

    JR: Thats right as Mr. McMahon said earlier there will be wrestling on every night of the week until each region is finished with their individual tournament.

    King: Hey JR if we get wrestling every night does that mean we get to see divas every night too? If thats so that means more PUPPIES!!!

    JR: I don't know King, but if you want to find out you better take a look at the scheduled programming for the week

    Graphic comes up showing what time and what station each show will be on

    JR: As you can see Raw, Smackdown, ECW, & TNA will be shown at it's regular time and station. On Wednesday you can catch ROH on the Versus network from 8-10 P.M. and Saturday WCW and the International Regions will be shown together of TNT from 8-11 P.M.

    King: I can't wait, but for now let's go to the back where Mike Adamle is standing by with John Cena

    Cut to the interview area in the back

    Adamle: Cena tonight you go one on one with none other than the Chairman of the WWE Mr. McMahon your thoughts?

    Cena: Well, Mike you know at the beginning of tonights show I actually thought that maybe just maybe Vince was having a change of heart and going in a new direction and just when I was about to believe it (screeching tire sound) I find out that he has put himself in the tournament. He couldn't help but stick his nose into places it don't belong, but that's ok, beause I guaruntee he won't make it past the first round tonight so you won't have to deal with him for long. So Vince get ready for a fight because I'm ready to beat your ass down.

    We go to commercial

    We come back from commerical and go to Lillian who is standing in the ring.

    Vince: Thank You Lillian your doing a wonderful job, however there is one thing you forgot, but don't worry it's not your fault I was keeping it a surprise. This match is now a NO DQ match.

    JR: Aw Come on whats the meaning of this it's bad enough that Shane is out there anyway, but to have it where he can interfere anytime he wants with out any consequences is just senseless.

    King: JR your talking about the boss you know he always has a trick up his sleeve.

    JR: Well, I wish he would have something up his ass.

    King: Easy JR

    We now hear the music of John Cena

He picks up Vince for the F-U he spins him around when out of nowhere Umaga comes in and hits Cena with a Samoan Spike. Cena goes down. Shane gets back in the ring and orders Umaga to go for the running hip attack in the corner. He hits it. Cena is out of it. Shane tells Umaga to hold Cena in the corner as he is going to go coast to coast. Right as Shane gets on the top rope the glass breaks and hear comes the Texas Rattlesnake Stone Cold Steve Austin.

    Austin grabs a mic

    Austin: Oh Hell Yeah I wasn't about to let this little slimy SOB think he was the Greatest Superstar of all Time I had to end that real quick.

    Austin looks out of the ring at Umaga

    Austin: And Vince you may want to invest in a new bodyguard this one's not looking so good. Oh Yeah that little scrawny SOB that thinks he got away from the Texas Rattlesnake AH AH. He can't run forever in fact if I were him I would quit running now because he's going to need it next week when he goes one one with the the toughest SON OF A Bitch in this tournament me. And thats the bottom line because Stone Cold Said so.

    JR: You heard it right hear next week in a first round tournament match it will be Shane McMahon v.s. Stone Cold Steve Austin.

    Tenay: Boy what a lineup that is. Now lets go to the back to Lauren who is standing by with Matt Morgan.

    Lauren: I am standing by with Matt Morgan. Matt what are your thoughts on your match tonight with Lance Hoyt.

    Morgan: You know, all week all I have been hearing is how everyone wants to win this tournament to prove they are the Greatest Superstar of All Time. To tell you the truth I actually don't care if I win the tournament, I mean winning it would be great, but it would just be a bonus to my goal and that goal is to prove that I am what I say I am the most "Genetically Jacked-Athletically Stacked Giant going today. I mean if you look at this tournament the greatest giants in pro wrestling are in it. You have Kane, Big Show, Great Khali, and of course the legend himself "The Eighth Wonder of the World" Andre the Giant among others. I know that I am more dominating than any of these other giants and throughout this tournament I will prove it, and I start tonight by taking out a big man in his own right Lance Hoyt. So Hoyt get ready, because your fixing to get dominated courtesy of "The Blueprint" Matt Morgan.

    AJ: Kurt I'm not so sure about my match tonight I mean I'm going against a guy who calls himself "The World's Most Dangerous Man". What if I get hurt? I have seen some of his matches in UFC and well, I haven't seen one match where his opponent don't walk out injured.

    Angle: Well, I guess you better be talking to Tomko so he can come to the ring with you for backup.

    AJ: Tomko, isn't here tonight. He has a match in Japan. OOH I know how about you face Shamrock and I'll take your first round opponent.

    Angle: Do I look stupid? Why would I want to face Ken Shamrock, I mean you just said yourself that nobody comes out uninjured in his matches. So no, your facing Shamrock and that's that.

    AJ walks out of the room worried when he runs into Karen Angle.

    Angle: Karen what are you doing here?

    Karen: Well, I just heard you talking to Kurt and you don't need to worry about your match tonight, because I know you are way more man than Shamrock and you can take him out easy, after all you are "The Prince of Phenomenal" and it don't hurt that I will be at ringside with you. So don't worry it will be O.K. I promise.

    Karen rubs her hand across AJ's chest as she walks away leaving AJ with a big smile on his face.

    Tenay: WOW lucks like AJ perked up pretty quick after seeing Karen.
