Rey Mysterio and Rob Van Dam defeat the Dudley Boyz

In a close fought match, Torrie managed to pick up the victory with a backslide, allowing Torrie to keep her job with SmackDown!

Mordecai defeated Scotty 2 Hotty

Mordecai was hyped and hyped, and he certainly didn't fail to impress as he entered the ring and went on to squash the former Tag Team champion, and picked up with win after hitting a modified Razor's Edge, dubbed the Crucifix.

--WWE Tag Team championship--

Rico and Charlie Haas retained against Billy gunn and Hardcore Holly

Rico did his usual antics in this match, really getting under the skins of Holly and Gunn in the process. Haas scored the pinfall after a superkick from Rico to Hardcore Holly allowed him to make the pin.

Chavo Guerrero defeated Jacqueline to become the new champion

Chavo had one hand tied behind his back, but with the help of Chavo Classic untying him, he was able to hit a Gory Bomb for the victory.

--WWE United States championship--

John Cena retained against Rene Dupree

Cena successfully defended his US title against the 'French Phenom', and scored the victory after he delivered the FU.

The Undertaker defeated Booker T

Mama Shangrie's voodoo powers seemed to have no effect on the outcome of this match. Although Booker has been carrying around that bag full of different items, and claims it will help him defeat the Deadman, Undertaker took the pinfall victory after a Tombstone Piledriver.

--WWE Championship

John "Bradshaw" Layfield defeated Eddie Guerrero via DQ, Eddie retains the title

JBL guaranteed victory before the match, and proved to be a man of his word, although the victory wasn't quite what he expected. Weeks of animosity between these two men came to a head, and Eddie Guerrero paid the price by bleeding all over the ring. There was blood everywhere, but Bradshaw bled as well. Eddie's emotions got the better of him, as he laid out John "Bradshaw" Layfield with the title belt, causing a disqualification. Eddie wasn't finished, and beat down JBL before giving him the Frog Splash.

Coming off of Judgment Day, a huge task awaits the writers. Many have called SmackDown the weeker show; some have called it inferior, and many have claimed that WWE officials don't care about it at all.

The fact that some of the storylines make little or no sense, or have been redone could be a big indication of this.

Is Judgment Day the turning point for SmackDown? Or will the next SmackDown be another in a long line of disappointments for the fans?

A side-note about the backstory. I don't like doing backstories, and neither me nor IAceI saw any need for one. So I just posted the Judgment Day report with a little paragraph.

SmackDown roster up next.

SmackDown! preview for Thursday 20th May 2004

Coming off the huge Judgment Day PPV this past Sunday, SmackDown has a lot of unanswered questions.

First; can Eddie Guerrero actually defeat John "Bradshaw" Layfield? Afterall, the match ended in a disqualification after Eddie blasted JBL in the head with his WWE championship. Eddie Guerrero needed 16 stitches to close the gash in his head, so he will probably be out for revenge, and having said that, JBL may well be out for some revenge of his own, seen as his title shot was cut short.

Second question; why did Kurt Angle add a stipulation to the Torrie Wilson vs. Dawn Marie match at Judgment Day? He said that if Torrie were to lose, she'd be fired from SmackDown. Thankfully, Torrie picked up the win, but Angle gave no explaination for his actions.

Thirdly; what is next for Mordecai? He debuted at Judgment Day in spectacular fashion by destroying Scotty 2 Hotty. Scotty's tag partner Rikishi is said to not be very pleased about how it happened, and is expected to be at SmackDown this Thursday to confront Mordecai.

Also, hot off their succesful title defence, the WWE Tag Team champions Rico and Charlie Haas will take on the dangerous Japanese duo of Akio and Sakoda in a non-title match. Kyo Dai have been left in limbo since Tajiri joined RAW as part of the roster shake-up the week after WrestleMania XX, and will be looking to put themselves on the wrestling map again by defeating the Tag Team champions.

Chavo Guerrero won his coveted Crusierweight title back Sunday night, and is set to defend it on SmackDown against Jacqueline...and his father Chavo Classic in a triple-threat! This has 'double-team' written all over it, but Jacqueline accepted this match and is willing to take part! Can she cause yet ANOTHER huge upset by winning the Cruiserweight title for a second time?

All these questions will hopefully be answered on SmackDown, tune in to find out!

SmackDown should be up in a bit...

20th May 2004

Announcers: Michael Cole and Tazz

Cole: Hello everyone and welcome to SmackDown! Tonight will be the fallout from one of the greatest PPV’s I can recall seeing. I’m alongside Tazz as usual, and Tazz, what did you think about Sunday night’s Judgment Day?

Tazz: Ah man it was one hell of a show! No doubt man, no doubt. The main event gave me nightmares. I couldn’t even sleep after it! I kept seeing Eddie Guerrero’s bloody face.

Cole: I know what you mean partner. Tonight we have a triple-threat match for the Cruiserweight title; it will be Chavo Guerrero defending the title against the woman who was screwed out of the title at Judgment Day; Jacqueline, and get this, the third person will be Chavo’s father, Chavo Guerrero Sr.! How is that fair?

Tazz: Hey hey hey Cole, it’s Chavo Classic! You gotta show respect to the man!

Cole: It’s essentially 2-on-one though! In any event, we’ve also got the WWE Tag Team champions Rico and Charlie Haas facing Akio and Sakoda in a non-title match.

Tazz: The extremely strange duo of Haas and Rico beat the seasoned veterans Hardcore Holly and Billy Gunn last night, so I think they’ve proved that although they don’t…how should I put this…get along, they are a great tag team.

Cole: Well last night Eddie Guerrero was busted open at the hands of John “Bradshaw” Layfield, and the WWE champion required 16 stitches to close the gapping wound on his forehead. Eddie left blood all over Los Angeles, and is not expected to be here…wait a minute! It’s Eddie!

Eddie came out to a huge ovation, and hand a bandage covering his forehead. Eddie was walking out for once, and was certainly not in a good mood.

Eddie: Hold up everyone. I’m out here tonight, because I am challenging John “Bradshaw” Layfield to a rematch tonight! You know, at Judgment Day, I bled. He bled. Hell, I bled a hell of a lot, but I never gave up. I had to have 16 stitches in my forehead to close the canyon in my forehead! But you know what? I kept on going holmes! I never stopped, I gave everything I had that night, but you know something; I didn’t give everything that I had. I mean, Sunday night I thought I was so focused man. I thought I knew what I was doing, but no man, no I didn’t. I was driven by rage, I was driven by hatred, I was driven by my Latino Heat! But I was driving. Oh no, I wasn’t in control, and that was why I nearly lost my WWE championship. I didn’t, but I damn sure could have. The rage took over inside me, and I picked up that WWE title and smashed John “Bradshaw” Layfield in the head with it! I got disqualified…but I wasn’t finished! I wanted him to suffer the same amount of pain that I and me entire familia suffered when he…when he touched my mother holmes! He could’ve killed her, and that thought made me want to kill him in return! So tonight JBL…I want you in this ring! Get out here now and give me my answer!

Cole: Eddie, I’m not sure if this is such a good idea! You’re nowhere near 100%.

Tazz: You got that right Cole; I don’t think he would stand a chance against Bradshaw if he faced him tonight.

Cole: Well I guess Eddie is going to get his answer; here comes John “Bradshaw” Layfield!

JBL made his way out onto the entrance ramp, decked out in his suit and cowboy hat, and was greeted by a chorus of boos from the crowd.

JBL: Ok Eddie, I’ll give you one thing; you would have lost the WWE title to me if you didn’t have to cheat and hit me in the face with it! See, that’s what people like you do. They cheat. Whether it’s cheating the system for benefits, cheating the system to get into our great country, or just plain old cheating to win, that’s what you do. But then there are people like me, people who fight to keep this great country the way it is. So Eddie, I accept your challenge! And I would like to announce to each and every one of you poor people in this arena, that after tonight, you shall be looking at the new WWE champion! Thank you!

84%

Cole: Oh no, Eddie Guerrero is in big trouble tonight…oh my; what now?

Tazz: That’s our General Manager, Kurt Angle!

Kurt Angle was wheeled out onto the stage by Luther, and then shook hands with John “Bradshaw” Layfield.

Angle: What the hell are you doing here tonight Eddie? Huh? I gave you the night off! I know what you might do tonight, and I know that you have not been medically cleared to be here tonight. So what I am saying is, there will be no rematch for the WWE championship tonight.

Crowd starts to boo Angle, as both Eddie Guerrero and JBL look shocked at Angle’s announcement.

Angle: But hold on a minute. Mr. Layfield, I know what you went through last night. I saw Eddie Guerrero cheat his way out of the match in which you, someone America can be proud of; you should’ve won the title. So I am giving you your rematch, but not tonight. Your rematch will take place at the next SmackDown-exclusive PPV, which is next month! Now this is the official announcement, as next month, June 13th, the Great American Bash! Now I think that is a fitting name for a PPV where a true American hero will challenge for the title. Now, as for you Eddie, I would like you to leave this ring, and leave this arena right now, as you have the night off!

Eddie: No way holmes! I am not leaving this ring until I get my hands on that piece of ****!

Angle: Don’t you dare swear on my show Eddie! Don’t you dare! Now, you can refuse my offer of a night off that is up to you. But if you DO refuse it, I will suspend you indefinitely, and strip you of you WWE championship and award it to Mr. Layfield! Now, what is your answer?

Eddie: …fine Angle you win tonight. I’m a champion of the people, and I can guarantee that not one of these fans wants to see that walking pile of dog crap with this title! So, I will leave, but mark my words, next week Bradshaw; next week you’re mine!

Eddie Guerrero dropped his microphone and walked down the side of the rampway and to the back, as Luther wheeled Kurt Angle to the back.

Commercial Break

Charlie Haas and Rico w/ Miss Jackie vs. Akio and Sakoda

Akio and Sakoda came out to a near-silent reaction, but Haas, Rico and Miss Jackie got a good pop upon their entrance. Rico and Haas are beginning to work very well as a team, but that may be because when Haas is in there, he seems to forget about Rico’s ‘antics’. Rico and Akio locked up, but Rico put an ended to that by going behind him and grabbing his behind! Akio looked terrified, and ran to the ropes and came back with a spinning kick to the face. Akio and Sakado isolated Rico for a time, but Rico managed to block a superplex from Sakado by groping his groin! Rico came off the top rope with a martial arts kick. Rico got the hot tag to Haas who cleaned house, and soon locked Sakoda in the Haas of Pain, leaving Sakoda no choice but to submit to the painful hold!

Winners: Charlie Haas and Rico

Miss Jackie jumped into the ring and hugged Haas who certainly enjoyed it! Rico then got in on it and literally jumped into Charlie Haas’ arms! Charlie looked horrified, but couldn’t really do anything about it.

Cole: Charlie Haas looks absolutely petrified out there with Rico in his arms!

Tazz: Can you blame him? Rico has tried to kiss him before you know!

Cole: He didn’t just try, he did kiss him! But did you see how happy Haas was when Miss Jackie hugged him?

Tazz: Well, duh! Look at her Cole! I know you don’t really swing that way, but she’s hot!

Cole: Well, whatever Tazz. We’re going backstage now, where Booker T is with Funaki!

Tazz: Oh this should be fun…

Funaki: This is, Funaki, SmackDown, numbah one, announcer! I’m here with Booka T. Booka, Sunday night you lost to the Undertaker, even with the help of, Mama Shangrie, what do you have to say?

Booker: What do I say? Huh Funaki? You’re asking me what I have to say about Judgment Day? Well I’m going to say right now, that Mama Shangrie was a total hoax! Yeah, you heard me. I did a little research, and man, I found out that she’s been pulling this crap on people for years. On innocent people like me! I spent $1000 on her! Man, I’m done with this voodoo crap. Undertaker, I’m gonna take you down once and for all. I was speaking with Kurt Angle earlier tonight, and he’s granted a match. Me versus you at the Great American Bash next month! That’s right Dead Man, you and me once again! You better get your dead ass ready, coz I’m coming for it!

Commercial Break

Booker T vs. Billy Kidman

Kidman made his way out first to a pretty good response, and was then followed out by Booker T who was still carrying that bag. But it soon all became clear, as he opened the bag and threw all the mud and things into the crowd before running into the ring. Booker went to work on Kidman, and laid a beating on the former Cruiserweight champion. Kidman fought out of the Book End by elbowing Booker in the mouth, and slowly attempted to mount a comeback. But Booker cut him off, and delivered the Axe Kick to end the match.

Winner: Booker T

Booker left the ring, but then turned around and returned to deliver the Book End to a helpless Billy Kidman. Booker then went to leave a second time, but decided against it and set Kidman up for a second Book End…but was cut off when the lights went out, and the Undertaker’s music began! The music stopped, and the lights soon came back on, and Booker looked scared. He dropped Billy Kidman, and quickly headed to the back.

Cole: Woah, the Undertaker just send a message to Booker T; don’t mess with the big dog!

Tazz: No doubt. But if Mama Shangrie can’t help Booker, who can?

Cole: Oh I don’t know, maybe Booker T could try and beat him fair and square in a match?

Tazz: Why would he want to do that?

Cole: …well, here comes Rikishi. At Judgment Day, Rikishi’s tag team partner Scotty 2 Hotty was decimated by the debuting Mordecai. That guy is creepy. Totally decked out in white, white hair, white beard, he creeps me out.

Rikishi: I’m out here to challenge that Mordecai guy to a match. At Judgment Day, he injured my friend, Scotty 2 Hotty. He took it to far, and now I’m going to pay Mordecai back. So get out here newcomer, and let a veteran show you how it’s done.

Rikishi threw down his mic, as the lights went out and Mordecai made his entrance, a very impressive entrance at that.

74%

Mordecai vs. Rikishi

Mordecai just stood nose to nose with the big Samoan Rikishi. Mordecai had no expression his face, as Rikishi talked trash to him. Rikishi struck first and tried to take Mordecai down, but he soon fell victim to Mordecai’s stiff punches. Cole made a comment about how Mordecai doesn’t seem to feel pain, and whoever does beat him, it would be a huge accomplishment. Mordecai had a bit more trouble with Rikishi than he did with Scotty, but he still dominated. Rikishi delivered a superkick to him, but he just stepped back a bit! Rikishi aimed another kick, but Mordecai grabbed his leg, spun him around and set him up for a powerbomb! He wowed the crowds with great strength, and hit a modified Razor’s Edge that Michael Cole called the Crucifix! Mordecai made the academic pin, and scored the win over Rikishi.

Winner: Mordecai

68%

65%

Commercial Break

Cole: Welcome back everyone, we just saw Rikishi try to get some retribution on Mordecai for injuring his friend Scotty 2 Hotty, but Mordecai destroyed him in the end.

Tazz: This Mordecai guy is frighteningly powerful. Rikishi is about 400lbs, and he lifted him up with ease!

Cole: I’ve just been told that next week on SmackDown, it’ll be Rene Dupree teaming up with Dawn Marie to take on the WWE US champion John Cena and Torrie Wilson. What a match that could be!

Tazz: No doubt Cole, no doubt. But our General Manager hasn’t explained why he made Torrie’s match at Judgment Day into what he did?

Cole: He said that if Torrie lost she’d be fired. I don’t know Tazz, but hopefully we’ll get some answers next week. Right now it’s time for the Cruiserweight title match. Chavo Guerrero regained his title when he cheated to beat Jacqueline for it at Judgment Day. So tonight, it’s going to be a triple-threat between Chavo Guerrero, Jacqueline…and Chavo Guerrero Sr.!

--WWE Cruiserweight title--

Jacqueline vs. Chavo Classic vs. Chavo Guerrero ©

Jacqueline was the out first to little reaction, and then Chavo and Chavo came out together to a chorus of boos. Both Chavo’s double-teamed Jacqueline, and made quick work of the former Women’s and Cruiserweight champion by hitting a double brainbuster, allowing Chavo Guerrero to make the pin.

Winner and still Cruiserweight champion: Chavo Guerrero

Both Chavo’s then kicked Jacqueline out of the ring, as the Cruiserweight champion picked up a microphone.

Chavo: I’ve had enough of you Jacky! I want you out of this ring. Go back to RAW, you’re not wanted here! I’m laying out an open challenge for next week on SmackDown. Any Cruiserweight, all you have to do is turn up. I’ll be in the ring, and all you have to do is come out. No women. Women don’t belong in the ring! They should just be there for eye candy. So, have I made myself clear? I think I’ve made myself clear haven’t I dad? Good. Next week then it begins; Chavo…vs. the world!

67%

Tazz: See Cole? I told you Jacqueline was a fluke, and that she didn’t have a real chance against Chavo Guerrero.

Cole: I don’t see how that was fair Tazz. She was doublet-teamed from the get go!

Tazz: Well, if you want to complain about it, complain to our General Manager Kurt Angle! Not me! Anyway, as Chavo said, Jacqueline has no place in the ring with a guy like Chavo. She could get hurt easily.

Cole: How can you condone what the Chavo’s did to her just now? And I can’t believe what you said! Equal opportunity Tazz; the WWE women have shown time and time again that they can compete with the men.

Tazz: Don’t get your knickers in a twist Cole! It was a match; a match which Jacky agreed to! You’ve gotta believe she understood the risks going into the match, so she has nobody to blame but herself!

Cole: Well, I don’t agree with you Tazz one bit, but we can’t bicker like this, as Josh Matthews is standing by with Paul Heyman and the Dudley Boyz.

Matthews: Thank you guys. Mr. Heyman, I was wondering, as are many of the SmackDown fans as to what your relationship with the Dudley Boyz is?

Heyman: Well Josh, my ‘relationship’ with the Dudley Boyz is that we respect one another. You see, while they were over on ‘RAW is Snore’, they weren’t treated like they should be. They were shackled by Eric Bischoff into being watered down versions of themselves. Tell me Josh; when was the last time you can remember seeing Bubba Ray and D-Von putting somebody through a table?

Matthews: Well I…

Heyman: Exactly, you can’t. But I’ve taken them back under my wing. Under the guidance of Paul Heyman, the Dudley Boyz will return to former glory. They will be the vicious sons of bitches that they once were! Oh and Josh, I can guarantee that this show will not go off the air before somebody eats wood!

67%

Cole: That sounded an awful lot like a threat Tazz.

Tazz: Um…unfortunately I have to agree with you. Either RVD or Rey Rey will eat some wood tonight! I just hope it isn’t our table…

Cole: Me too partner. Anyway, here comes the Dudley Boyz accompanied by Paul Heyman! They look as focused as ever and…wait a minute; Paul Heyman is coming to join us on commentary!

Tazz: Hi there Paul! Wassup man? What you doing here?

Heyman: I’m good Tazz, I’m out here to see the Dudleyz and JBL destroy that ungrateful waste of space Rob Van Dam and that little mosquito Rey Mysterio!

Cole: Paul…

Heyman: Ahem, it’s Mr. Heyman to you Michael Cole.

Cole: …Mr. Heyman, you said that someone would taste wood tonight; do they Dudleyz have a target? Or could it be anyone?

Heyman: Well Michael, you’ll just have to wait and see won’t you?

Commercial Break

John “Bradshaw” Layfield and the Dudley Boyz w/ Paul Heyman vs. Rey Mysterio and Rob Van Dam

SmackDown returns to see the match in progress, as D-Von is in the ring with Rey Mysterio. D-Von is laying into Mysterio with rights and lefts, and takes him into the corner, before laying him out with a clothesline. D-Von makes the tag to his ‘brother’ Bubba, who continues right where he left off. Bubba was vicious enough that even Michael Cole had to agree that the Dudleyz seemed to be reverting to their ECW roots. Bubba whipped Rey to the ropes, but Rey flew over Bubba, hit the far rope and nailed Bubba Ray in the back of the head with a dropkick! Both men were down, and the referee reached a count of 8 before both men got to their feet and exchanged blows that eventually saw Rey laying him out with a enziguri and tagging in RVD! RVD cleaned house, laying out both Dudleyz with clotheslines, and taking down JBL with a kick to the jaw. Van Dam then delivered Rolling Thunder to D-Von Dudley before Bubba threw him outside and tagged in Bradshaw. The big hoss entered the ring, but was met by Rey Mysterio coming off the top rope with a cross body! Rey got a near fall, and then tried to hit hard and fast on JBL, but eventually his speed failed against JBL’s strength when he tasted Bradshaw’s $1000 leather boots in his mouth! Bradshaw signalled for the Stock Market Crash (Fallaway Slam). He went to nail the move, but Mysterio wriggled out of the back and ran to the ropes…but Bradshaw laid him out with the Clothesline from Hell!! JBL covered Mysterio, but pulled back the trousers as well…1…2…3! JBL steals another one!

Winners: John “Bradshaw” Layfield and the Dudley Boyz

JBL wasn’t finished, but as he went to pick up Mysterio’s broken body, Van Dam came off the top rope with a martial arts kick! Van Dam then went to the top and signalled for the Five Star Frog Splash, but the Dudley Boyz appeared in the ring and shoved RVD to the outside!

Cole: Oh my god! Van Dam’s face just bounced off the guardrail! What is D-Von doing? Oh no…

Heyman: Tables! I told you Cole; someone will taste the wood before SmackDown goes off the air!

Cole: My god…they’ve put Mysterio on the table, and have RVD…

Heyman: 3D!!! The Dudley Death Drop! RVD…through Rey Mysterio…to the mat! Oh this is brilliant.

Tazz: Well if there was ever any doubt before, there is none now; the Dudley Boyz are back to their best!

SmackDown went off the air with the Dudley Boyz starring a hole right through the broken bodies of Rey Mysterio and Rob Van Dam, as John “Bradshaw” Layfield just stands there laughing.

Oops...my bad. I knew I'd forget something. I spent ages going through it to make sure everything was alright and sorted out, but I forget Matt, Rhyno and Tajiri. Typical...Just use the editor to fix the alignments. I hardly doubt anyone would mind would they?

You can't use the editor to change alignments

Anyway, great show, wonder who the cruiserweight will be? Maybe Hardy?

He meant Arsenic, or you could swap the save game folder to data and data to the save game folder use the editor and then put the folders back.

They both work.

Announcers: Josh Matthews and Bill DeMott

Matthews: Hey everyone! Velocity is just about to get underway, and we haven’t even introduced ourselves! I’m Josh Matthews and my big announce partner is Bill DeMott. Come on Bill that was a good intro!

DeMott: ‘Big’ announce partner? You saying I’m fat man?

Matthews: Of course not Bill! We’ve got a big main event lined up tonight, and that is the veteran duo of Hardcore Holly and Billy Gunn teaming up against the most dangerous team, quite possibly in WWE history, the Dudley Boyz!

DeMott: The Dudleyz, coming off a big defeat at Judgment Day went on to SmackDown and took part in that assault that was the main event.

Matthews: But that’s later, right now we have Paul London taking on a young man by the name of Joey Ryan.

Paul London vs. Joey Ryan

London started off quickly after a lock-up, and took Ryan down with a backdrop. Ryan recovered, but London put him back down onto the mat after a high dropkick. London dominated for much of the match, but Ryan did have a moment or two where he dominated. He even scored a near fall after a moonsault, but London kicked out after two. London then took control, and after a blockbuster suplex, scored the pin.

Winner: Paul London

Matthews: Big win there for Paul London. Joey Ryan was quite impressive don’t you think?

DeMott: He did good Josh in this, his shot at the big time. Appearing on Velocity; doesn’t get any better than that now does it?

Matthews: No way Bill, when you appear on Velocity; you know that there’s no higher place in wrestling!

Commercial Break

A video aired for a tall Japanese man with long black hair. It showed him taking people out with body tackles and clotheslines and also showed him doing shadow martial arts. The video then faded to black with the words: “Coming Soon” at the end.

27%

Matthews: Well, whoever that guy is, he looks big and dangerous! I wonder who he is?

DeMott: Big, strong and dangerous from what I’m told. I don’t have a name, but I’ve been told when he arrives, he’ll run roughshod through the SmackDown roster!

Matthews: Where do you get your information from Bill?

DeMott: I get it from the guys and girls in makeup. Their information has yet to fail me.

“The Reflection of Perfection” Mark Jindrak w/ Theodore Long vs. Shannon Moore

The man “with the face of a god and the body of Adonis” was all over Shannon Moore from the get go. Moore was barely able to mount any sort of offence at all, and even when he did, Jindrak seemed to barely feel it. Moore connected with a dropkick, knocking Jindrak to his knees momentarily, but as soon as Moore tried to capitalise on it, Jindrak took him out with a big clothesline. Jindrak called for it, and hit the Mark of Perfection and picked up the victory.

Winner: Mark Jindrak

Commercial Break

A video played to hype the upcoming mixed-tag team match on SmackDown that will pit Rene Dupree and Dawn Marie against John Cena and Torrie Wilson. It showed highlights of the Judgment Day clash between Dupree and Cena for the United States title. It also showed Dupree interviewing Torrie on his interview segment, Café de Rene, and then shows Dupree powerbombing Cena through the announce table to the concrete floor. Amongst this, it shows Torrie defeating Dawn Marie at Judgment Day after Angle stating she’d be fired if she was to lose.

Matthews: The stakes are high this coming Thursday as the United States champion John Cena and Torrie Wilson face ‘the French Phenom’ Rene Dupree and Dawn Marie. Bill, this feud between Cena and Dupree is getting worse as the weeks go on, how do you see this ending?

DeMott: Well Josh; in my opinion it’s only a matter of time before Rene Dupree takes the US title from John Cena. Dupree has built up a lot of momentum since joining SmackDown from RAW, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him wearing gold any time soon.

Matthews: Could very well happen. Someone else who is desperate to get his hands on some gold is John “Bradshaw” Layfield. He faced Eddie Guerrero at Judgment Day, and what happened that night was a total and utter blood bath, take a look.

Clips of the Judgment Day main event match between Eddie Guerrero and John “Bradshaw” Layfield were shown. It showed Eddie bleeding buckets after JBL’s chairshot, and showed Eddie getting himself disqualified after using the WWE championship belt to hit Bradshaw in the face. The video package closed out after showing the bloodstained ring.

The Dudley Boyz vs. Hardcore Holly and Billy Gunn

The men who challenged for the Tag Team titles at Judgment Day were the strong fan favourites and came out fighting. The veteran team of Bubba and D-Von had a lot of momentum coming into this match after destroying Rob Van Dam and Rey Mysterio on SmackDown, and started off strongly against the veteran duo. Holly and Gunn delivered stereo-dropkicks to Bubba and D-Von, and really got the crowd going from that point. Billy hit the One and Only on D-Von, but the cover only managed a two. He tagged out to Hardcore Holly, but Bubba came from behind with a forearm shot to the back off the head, distracting the referee and allowing D-Von to low-blow Hardcore. He then managed to tag in Bubba, and with Billy pleading his case to the referee the Dudleyz hit the wassupp! The Dudleyz then dominated, making quick regular tags and keeping Hardcore Holly isolated. But as soon as D-Von whipped Hardcore to the ropes, Hardcore pulled out one last dropkick from deep down. With both men down, Bubba and Billy Gunn were desperate to get into the ring. Both men got the tag, and Billy cleaned house on both the Dudleyz! Billy signalled for the Fame Asser on Bubba…but came off the ropes right into a 3D! Hardcore was in a heap on the outside, and was unable to stop Bubba from making the 1…2…3!

Winners: the Dudley Boyz

82%

The referee went to raise the Dudleyz hands, but they refused, went outside and brought in a table! They lay Billy Gunn on one table…and hit the 3D on Hardcore through it! Much like SmackDown, the Dudleyz stood victorious over the fallen opponents as Velocity went off the air.

Overall Rating: 59%

TV Rating: 4.45

Just a little note, Velocity will always be much shorter than SmackDown for the simple reason that it's the B-show. If anything relating to storylines etc happens, it'll be longer than the rest.

Sunday Night Heat

23rd May 2004

Our hosts for the night are Jonathon Coachman and Al Snow

Chuck Palumbo d. Rob Conway w/ Sylvan Grenier

Chuck Palumbo has certainly changed since coming over to the Raw brand, and in a good way too. He came out with black tights on and very focussed look on his face, his opponent Rob Conway though wasn’t going to lie down for him though and gave him a fight. Conway used some technical holds for the better part of the match but Chuck soon gained the crowds affection and sent Conway down to the mat with a boot to the chest. Conway returned to his feet and this time received two right fists followed by a discus punch, Conway took much longer to regain his composure and get to his feet, and even when he did he walked straight into a sit out powerbomb and was pinned for the win. The crowd cheered this new Chuck Palumbo who seemed all business now but Chuck didn’t go off celebrating with the fans, he just walked back up the ramp as if he hadn’t done anything.

(53/38/68/Chuck Palumbo debuted his new gimmick, it got a positive response. Rob Conway is losing overness because of his weak gimmick.)

Pick On Someone Your Own Size

Backstage we see a young, coloured, wrestler backstage identified as Hydro preparing for a one on one match tonight, that’s when his opponent and the much larger Tyson Tomko comes up to him, Hydro turns and looks at Tomko who stares up and down at Hydro but always looking down at him. Tomko smiles a little before grunting and turning away and leaving, leaving Hydro alone, and a little scared and or nervous.

(44/Tyson Tomko lost overness from this segment. Hydro gained overness from this segment. )

Tyson Tomko d. Hydro

The two aforementioned wrestlers are preparing to square off in the ring following a commercial break in which Hydro came down to the ring, Tomko’s music starts up and he comes down to the ring with Trish Stratus and Christian nowhere to be found. The two step forward as Tomko quickly starts the match with a kick to the gut and then pummels the small wrestler with forearms and clubbing shots the back. The crowd aren’t really into the match however as Tomko picks up Hydro and spins him around in the air before dropping him flat on his stomach. Hydro mounts very little offence and the match is short lived and comes to an end when Tomko picks up Hydro and hit’s a reverse death valley driver, a move he calls the “Problem Solver” he gets the easy victory and smugly celebrates to the crowd as if he’d just fought off his biggest challenge yet.

(53/39/67)

Garrison Cade & Test Speak Out

Test’s music hit and the two unlikely duo emerge from the back, each holding a microphone.

Test: “ Listen up you lot, me and Garrison here are an unlikely duo for damn sure but that doesn’t change a thing when we beat these two losers who think they’re super heroes! ”

Garrison Cade: “ That’s damn right, them two may have more experience but we have to raw power, and more than anything, we have the best damn physical shape in the WWE but enough crap, bring those two losers out! ”

The two climb into the ring and drop the microphones.

(52/Test lost overness from this segment.)

Test & Garrison Cade d. The Justice League [The Hurricane & Rosey]

Test & Garrison Cade kept to their words and prevailed over Hurricane & Rosey in a hard fought match which could have swung either way. Test and Hurricane started off and Test had the upper hand for the better part of the match however when Hurricane mounted some offence Test was quick to tag out. Hurricane returned the favour and Cade ran straight into the 400lbs Rosey, Cade slowly backed off but his begging for mercy got him nowhere as he was swung into the air by Rosey and then Samoan Dropped onto the floor, face first. Cade held his stomach in pain as he was once again hoisted into the air but Test came in with a kick to the gut of Rosey and Cade slipped out. Hurricane clothesline Test to the outside the momentum sending both over, Cade then low blows Rosey when the referee is checking on Hurricane and Test on the outside. Cade covers for the easy three and gets the pinfall. After the match a loud crash can be heard as Hurricane is sent into the ring steps and Test re enters the ring, he crabs Rosey as Cade delivers some closed fists to the stomach before Test uses a massive Full Nelson Slam on Rosey!! The crowd boo as the winning duo leave the ring, and leaving the carnage they caused, in the ring.

(71/66/76/Test is losing overness because of his weak gimmick.)

A New Tag Team?

After the match the duo are seen going backstage when Coach comes up to them after leaving his commentary position. Coach asks if the pair want to tag more often, Test grins a little and then high fives Cade. An unlikely duo has been formed and the screen fades out.

(55/Test lost overness from this segment.)

Monday Night Raw Results

24th May 2004

The pyrotechnic start goes off as “Move to the Music” by Union Underground marks the start of Monday night Raw, the camera swings around the fans before focussing on Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler who are at their usual commentary position of the stage.

Jim Ross: “ Hello everybody and welcome to Raw, I’m your host Jim Ross and along side me is non other that Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler, hello everybody ”

Jerry Lawler: “ Yeah JR and tonight is extra special because all four members of Evolution are in action tonight! ”

Jim Ross: “ That’s right, tonight marks the start of the sixteen man tournament called ‘The Bischoff Challenge’ in which the winner will be determined and will fight the current champion at Bad Blood. But could Eric Bischoff be any more egotistical? Naming the tournament ‘The Bischoff Challenge’, give me a break. ”

Jerry Lawler: “ I see nothing wrong with the name, all I see something wrong is, is your attitude! ”

Jim Ross: “ Say as you like but Bischoff is also trying to rid Raw of his own nephew, poor Eugene thinks he has a friend in William Regal but he doesn’t, Regal is trying to get rid of him to get back on the Raw roster following a series of heart problems but he is able to wrestle now! ”

Jerry Lawler: “ The sooner Eugene is gone the better I say, he tried to, no, he did, he actually licked my forehead, he played with the pyrotechnics he needs to be put on a leash JR! ”

[The camera cuts backstage where we see the aforementioned Eugene and William Regal backstage, Regal has a tuxedo on and his shirt and tie, Eugene has his typical white jacket on which has Eugene written on back-to-front. Eugene is biting his nail as always and running on the spot in a disorderly fashion.]

William Regal: “ All right, all right. Calm down Eugene stop running on the spot. Come on take your finger out your mouth. ”

[Regal pulls Eugene’s thumb from his mouth and puts it by his side.]

William Regal: “ That’s better, now Eugene you won last week didn’t you! ”

[Eugene gets exited and starts jumping up and down clapping and smiling.]

Eugene: “ Eugene win! Eugene win! ”

William Regal: “ But you like me don’t you? ”

Eugene: “ Yeah, Eugene like his nanny! ”

William Regal: “ I AM NOT YO- ”

[Regal stops himself and takes a deep breath.]

William Regal: “ Right, right, your nanny. And Eugene, you want to see your nanny wrestle again don’t you? ”

Eugene: “ Nanny wrestle! Nanny wrestle! ”

William Regal: “ So, how about you go out to your match and lie down for Sylvan Grenier and then leave Raw and you can watch me wrestle again. ”

Eugene: “ You no want Eugene to win? ”

William Regal: “ Yes of course, I just think that it’d be best if you wrestled elsewhere, because Raw is very tough competition! ”

[Eugene looks sad, his bottom lip sticks out as his eyes bubble up.]

William Regal: “ So go out there and do as your nanny Regal told you to. ”

[Eugene looks at the ground, he turns away and walks towards the entrance looking really unhappy. William Regal is left chucking to himself.]

Eugene d. Sylvan Grenier w/ Rob Conway

Eugene sauntered out not like his usual happy self after being told to lose the match by William Regal . Eugene climbs into the ring and stands in the corner, hanging his head. Then the cocky French-man, Sylvan Grenier makes his appearance with the French synthesiser, Rob Conway , in tow. The French-man gets in the ring and does a side step shuffle before taking off his coat. Sylvan Grenier steps into the centre of the ring and Eugene slowly makes his way to the ring, biting the nail from one of his hands and the other pointing ahead. Grenier looked at Eugene and laughed, he put him in a headlock but Eugene reversed it and applied a headlock of his own. Grenier went to reverse it into a headlock but Eugene slipped behind a tripped him on his face. The crowd roared as Eugene ran around clapping. Grenier gets back up and shouts at Eugene to lie down but he doesn’t and the crowd get pumped. Grenier attacks Eugene with some technical moves but always finds them being reversed, Grenier then takes down Eugene with a clothesline and stomps him on the mat and Eugene crawls to the corner Grenier distracts the referee and Conway begins to punch Eugene from the outside. Grenier walks over to Eugene and is now in full control.

After minutes of being beaten down Eugene eventually gets so momentum flowing and unleashes it by taking down Grenier with a double axe handle to the face, Grenier is instantly up but gets dropkicked back off the ropes and rolled up, near fall there. William Regal then walks out down the ramp, he points at Eugene and begins shouting that he’s been disobedient as if he was his dog. Eugene’s bottom lip sticks out again as Rob Conway comes behind with a roll up, one…two…th- kickout! Eugene kicked out! The crowd roar and Regal goes mad, kicking the ring steps. Eugene goes off the ropes and William Regal grabs onto his leg, Eugene stays standing and then drops down and kicks Regal in the face! The crowd roar once more as Eugene quickly gets up and plants Grenier with a DDT. He turns round and ducks a top rope clothesline attempt from Conway and superkicks him in the jaw! Conway oversells and dives over the top rope to the floor, Eugene gets up and spins round in a odd manor before stopping and kicking Grenier in the gut. Grenier bends over as Eugene puts his knee on the back of Grenier’s head, jumps up and then goes to the mat, driving Grenier’s face into it. Eugene covers Grenier and gets the three count before bailing out and running (walking/waddling/whatever) up the ramp with his arm outstretched and biting his nails once more. After the match is over Grenier and Conway get up in the ring as Regal is standing looking at the ramp, his face a beat red after being embarrassed by Eugene. He turns around and Conway and Grenier lift him up before driving him into the mat with a double spinebuster. La Resistance leave the ring as Regal lays in pain.

[We go back to the announce table where Jim Ross is hyped (as usual) and Lawler looks quite disgusted with the outcome of the just finished match.]

Jim Ross: “ Eugene has done it! Eugene is one-hundred percent in the WWE he’s yet to lose! ”

Jerry Lawler: “ Calm down JR, he’s only wrestled twice. Anyways, ladies and gentlemen don’t forget the 20 Man Battle Royal to decide the number one contender for the title at Bad Blood, the winner will face the champion and winner of the Eric Bischoff Challenge in a triple threat match, and JR, guess who I’m picking. ”

Jim Ross: “ I’m sure none of us know… ”

Jerry Lawler: “ Triple H! ”

Jim Ross: “ How would we ever have guessed that King? ”

Jerry Lawler: “ Well it’s right, Triple H was about to throw Kane over the top rope thus becoming the number one contender but alas HBK sticks his nose in where it doesn’t belong and threw Triple H out of the ring! He’s suspended JR. He’s suspended and should be fired now for intruding in a match when he shouldn’t even be in the arena! ”

[We go backstage where we see Rhyno psyching himself up for his upcoming Eric Bischoff Challenge match against Matt Hardy, he slaps himself in the face a few times like Shelton Benjamin does before shaking his head and walking down the corridor towards the arena, sorting out his wrist wrap as per usual.]

Jim Ross: “ Rhyno vs. Matt Hardy the first match of the Eric Bischoff challenge…next! ”

[COMMERCIAL BREAK]

Jim Ross: “ Hello everybody and welcome back to Monday Night Raw, if you’ve just joined us you missed the fan favourite Eugene defeat Sylvan Grenier and kick the taste out of Regal’s mouth! However there’s no time to chat, Rhyno is heading to the ring, he’ll take on Matt Hardy in the first Eric Bischoff Challenge match! ”

Rhyno d. Matt Hardy

As Jim Ross had stated Rhyno was on his way to the ring, beating his chest as his music blared away in the background, the crowd gave him a reasonably good reception but not as good as the one when the titantron came up and it said User Name: Matt Hardy, Password: Version 1.0 the crowd gave a loud reception as the Matt fact was “ Matt always wears a seatbelt when driving. ” Which shows they are running out of good Matt facts. He climbs into the ring, only one Matt fact, which also shows they are running out of facts. Hardy climbs in the ring and the two former nemesis’ face off. Rhyno of course helping Edge & Christian to that historic TLC win at WrestleMania XVII against The Hardyz and the Dudleyz. The crowd are looking to back Hardy all the way but that doesn’t seem to deter Rhyno as he takes control early on in the match, pounding away on Matt Hardy. Rhyno pulls Hardy up and goes for a short clothesline but Hardy has it scouted as he ducks underneath it and then elbows Rhyno in the face, Rhyno stumbles back against the ropes and Hardy continues to forearm him in the face before whipping him off the ropes, Rhyno reverses it though and Hardy returns with a feeble shoulder tackle. Rhyno stands their as Hardy goes off the adjacent ropes but the shoulder block doesn’t make Rhyno move an inch. Rhyno’s turn, he bounces off the ropes but Hardy takes him down with a drop toe hold! The crowd cheer as Hardy rolls over the back of Rhyno getting to his head and applying a headlock.

Rhyno manages to make it to the ropes, slinging his arm across the bottom rope, the crowd are still behind Hardy as Rhyno pulls himself up taking a few shots to the head in the process. Rhyno then grabs Hardy and presses him above his head before dropping him flat out on his stomach, Rhyno is forced to go to one knee to recuperate. Rhyno picks up Hardy after a moment of taking some deep breaths and puts him under his arm, he lifts him up into a suplex position and allows the blood to rush to Hardy’s head, he then sets him back on his feet and drops down with a DDT! JR talks about how the blood would rush to Hardy’s head, then he’d feel dizzy when set on his feet. Rhyno covers but Hardy is out at two, Rhyno can’t believe it and pulls Hardy to his feet, he whips him into the corner and follows up, clothslining him down. Rhyno goes to the opposite corner but suddenly there is a loud explosion followed by red gas. Slow Chemical can be heard around the arena and the boos pick up loudly as Kane walks to the ring, Rhyno rushes to the apron as Kane climbs in but it is worthless, Kane simply wraps his hand round his throat and then chokeslams him down. DQ victory for Rhyno! Kane turns his attention to Matt after staring down Rhyno, he grabs him by the throat and raises him up…chokeslam! The crowd boos turn into cheers as Lita sprints down the ring, she slides in and jumps on Kane’s back choking him. Kane staggers about for a moment before leaning over and sending Lita crashing onto her back. Kane grabs Lita’s throat and pulls her to her feet, he slowly moves in and kisses her on the cheek. JR talks about how revolting it is, before Kane gives Lita a chokeslam. A kiss of death so to speak. King, for once, backs Hardy and Lita, as he too says how despicable Kane is.

Jim Ross: “ Kane is a horrible human being! I hope he dies a horrible death. ”

Jerry Lawler: “ I don’t think you can say that on live television JR, but you’re right, not only did Kane but his hands on Lita, but he kissed her. That gross human being kissed Lita! ”

Jim Ross: “ I don’t care King, that sick human being burnt me! He deserves to die! ”

Jerry Lawler: “ We’re going to a commercial break, we’ll be right back… ”

[COMMERCIAL BREAK]

Jim Ross: “ Hello everybody and welcome back to Monday Night Raw, just before the break we saw an incident involving Kane, Matt Hardy and Lita. It was disturbing what Kane done to those two human beings but here’s what happened during the break. ”

[The screen changes showing a logo in the bottom saying “ During The Break ” it is still at the moment and shows Kane walking down a corridor. It comes to life and he is infact walking down the corridor when he is stopped by Eric Bischoff.]

Eric Bischoff: “ Dammit Kane, this charade has gone on long enough and it ends on June 27th, I don’t care if either of you win my tournament you will fight at Bad Blood. Kane vs. Matt Hardy, one on one…in a…a…dammit, a fifteen foot high steel cage. ”

[Kane smiles slightly, although it’s a frightening smile non the less. However he grunts as he rolls his eyes upwards, Bischoff looks at him and backs off before walking away, looking back frequently but Kane just stands their laughing and we go back to the commentators.]

Jim Ross: “ He’s one sick individual King but June 27th, all hell will break loose! Kane vs. Matt Hardy! In a steel cage! ”

Jerry Lawler: “ It’s going to be an awesome match JR, no interference will occur, although it is possible. ”

Jim Ross: “ Well up next is Chris Jericho vs. Edge, also in the Eric Bischoff Challenge, this match is in Block A and will surely be a great match. ”

Edge d. Chris Jericho

The duo circled the ring before meeting in the middle, following a brief stare down Edge extended his hand, Jericho paused before slapping it rather than shaking it. Edge grinned slightly and backed off, the two sidestepped around the ring before doing a traditional collar and elbow tie up. Jericho went behind with a wrist lock, Edge too reverses it into a wrist lock of his own. Jericho spins free he goes for a lock up but decides against it, he wipes his forehead and circles the ring again. The two run at each other with Edge ducking a clothesline and rebounding off the ropes he comes back with a takedown and opens up with some closed right fists. Jericho manages to push him off and mounts Edge this time, he too opens up with some right hands before the referee pulls Jericho off. Edge gets to his feet holding the side of his face with both hands. Edge waits until the referee releases Jericho and Edge runs at him, Jericho moves and throws Edge through the ropes sending him to the ground below. Jericho is quick to follow him to the outside, he picks up Edge and drops him onto the ring barrier, the crowd let out an “ooh” as Jericho whips Edge into the ring apron and follows up with a spear! Jericho rolls Edge into the ring and crawls to him before covering, one...two...kickout!

Jericho slams his hands onto the mat in frustration before placing them on his thighs. He pulls Edge up by the hair before whipping him off the ropes, he elbows Edge in the face but instead of going down Edge turns away holding his face, this allows Jericho to get a school boy roll up, one…two…kickout again. Edge rolls backwards and stands up, Jericho runs at him but Edge ducks and Jericho takes down the referee with a clothesline! Jericho turns round into a dropkick from Edge but the crowd are drawn to the ramp with a lot of boos chorusing around the arena. Christian is with his girlfriend, Trish Stratus, the two walk down with Christian with his hand around Trish’s waist. Jericho turns around and points at Christian, he begins to head up the ramp towards him however in the ring Tyson Tomko has made a quick entrance and clubs Edge from behind. Edge stumbles forward and turns round into a big clothesline folding him up like a deckchair. Jericho turns round and slides in the ring, he sends Tomko against the ropes with right hands, he tries to whip him but it is reversed, Jericho comes off the ropes and Tomko lifts him up and holds him before dropping him with a spinebuster, by now Christian and Trish are at ringside, Trish hands Tomko a chair who slams it off the ground. Tomko raises it as Jericho gets to his feet, staggering a bit, Tomko brings the chair down hard on Jericho’s head, Jericho stands straight for a moment before collapsing on the floor, Tomko puts Edge on top of Jericho and the Tomko bails along with Christian and Trish. The referee comes round after about half a minute (not immediately for once) and slowly counts, one……two……three. The crowd were expecting a kick out from Jericho but it wasn’t to be, it took a minute before either man got to their feet and it was Edge’s hand that was risen.

Jim Ross: “ I don’t believe it, Christian, Trish Stratus and the “Problem Solver” Tyson Tomko interrupted this great match up and now Edge has took home a win with unwanted help! ”

Jerry Lawler: “ That’s great JR! Christian and Jericho’s feud is escalating to new levels! ”

Jim Ross: “ Well that ma- ”

[JR is cut off as we head backstage where we see Chris Benoit walking down the corridor, the crowds cheering is deafening, he props his title on his shoulder until he is brought to a halt by non other than Evolution leader Triple H.]

Triple H: “ Chris, don’t expect me to go round beating everyone to get into this match at Bad Blood. I’m gonna win the tournament because I don’t like losing, that’s why I will win the Battle Royal and get to face you…one…on…one. ”

Chris Benoit: “ Well Trips, I got a surprise for you, but I don’t wanna spoil it for you, so I’m sure you will find out later tonight. ”

[benoit smiles before pushing Triple H aside and walking by. Triple H gets a look of anger on his face and runs up behind Benoit and clubs him around the back of the head. The rest of Evolution come into the screen and are quick to attack Benoit, stomping him as Triple H takes his title. The rest of Evolution hold him up and Triple H nails the World Title over Benoit’s head. Benoit goes down and Triple H drops the title on Benoit’s chest as Evolution leave.]

Jim Ross “ Damn Evolution, damn them all to hell! Attack Benoit from behind like that and then taking Benoit’s title and using it as an offensive weapon! ”

Jerry Lawler: “ Benoit shouldn’t have put his hands on Triple H, doing that puts your own health at risk! ”

Jim Ross: “ They attacked him from behind King, that’s the sort of thing Evolution would do anyways. Attacking someone from behind! ”

Jerry Lawler: “ Hey, if it gets the job done, it gets the job done. ”

Jim Ross: “ I don’t really agree but I realised your head is so far up Evolution’s ass its impossible to win with you so lets just move on to the next match of the night. The monstrous Kane takes on the Intercontinental Champion Randy Orton! ”

[COMMERCIAL BREAK]

[Eric Bischoff is at the top of the ramp holding a microphone, he waits until the boos die down enough for him to be heard.]

Eric Bischoff: “ Y’know, it’s come to my attention that as a good business man that this following match will be not only an Eric Bischoff Challenge match, but ALSO an Intercontinental Title match as well! Enjoy! ”

Bischoff leaves to the back which is shortly followed by the entrances of the two superstars.]

Randy Orton © d. Kane

Intercontinental Title

Randy Orton is visibly nervous and who wouldn’t be when their standing in front of a 7’ 300lbs psychotic monster. Orton carefully gives the referee the title and then dives at Kane catching him by surprise with a right fist. Kane shrugs it off and comes back with a right fist of his own and for a few blows each they trade right hands with Orton surprisingly getting the better. Orton tries to whip Kane off the ropes but the larger man reverses it, Orton comes back and Kane knees him in the gut before lifting him up around the throat, chokeslam already, no, Orton kicks him in the gut and is dropped to his feet. Orton plants Kane with a DDT and attempts to catch his breath but Kane simply sits up. The crowd don’t know who to cheer, they seem to hate both so it’s a mixed reaction for both. Orton can’t believe it as he backs into the turnbuckle, as Kane begins to get up he drops him in the face and covers, one…t- kickout. Not quite a two count as Kane powers out! Orton gets up but Kane is already there and Kane takes him down with a clothesline, before raising his arms and the dropping them in his pose. Orton stands in the turnbuckle and Kane turns round, he goes for the RKO but is pushed towards the ropes but the velocity sends him over the ropes to the outside!

Kane follows where he is hit with a cheap shot to the gut, Orton throws him into the ring barrier and follows up with a clothesline over it. Orton drops to his knees but manages to crawl into the ring, the referee gets to four on the out count when Kane’s hand appears on the barrier, he then pulls himself up and Orton can’t believe it. Kane climbs over the barrier on six and walks to the ring, he gets onto the apron and finally climbs in on nine. Orton nails him with a flurry of right hands followed by a dropkick but Kane just leans back against the ropes, Orton tries to whip him but still hasn’t learned and it is reversed, Kane delivers a big boot to Orton. Kane grabs Orton and pulls him to his feet before wrapping his hand around his throat once more, he lifts him up but again Orton gets out of it, this time rolling through sending the big man down. The Big Red Machine once again sits up, Orton once again can’t believe it and thinks about what he has to do to keep Kane down. Kane slowly gets up as Orton elbows him in the face and Kane turns around, he turns back to Orton…RKO! Kane bounces over onto his back and Orton collapses on him, he tries to hook the leg but the referee counts, one…two…three! Orton has done it! Orton has his hand raised by the referee and given his title as he raises it into the air.

Jim Ross: “ What a match King, I hate both of them but I’ll give the devils their due with that awesome display and no Evolution, Matt Hardy or Lita either it was a good clean match. ”

Jerry Lawler: “ It was all Randy Orton, JR! I’m telling you the kid is a star and a future legend of the business. ”

Jim Ross: “ He has a bright future ahead of him, I’ll give you that one King. ”

[COMMERCIAL BREAK]

Jim Ross: “ Hello and welcome back to Monday Night Raw, we have no time to chat because we have Triple H vs. Christian and then that Battle Royal! ”

Christian w/ Trish Stratus & Tyson Tomko d. Triple H w/ Ric Flair & Batista

When Christian came out, accompanied by that jezebel Trish Stratus and the huge problem solver Tyson Tomko the odds were evened as Evolution minus Randy Orton came out. Although comparing Ric Flair and Trish Stratus to each other isn’t exactly fair, neither are Evolution so it didn’t really matter. Triple H started off in complete control, not only that but we were seeing an old 2001 technical Triple H rather than the brawler we have today. Triple H had Christian in an STF wrenching the left side of Christian. Christian slowly made it to the ropes and the referee called for the rope break, after a little resilience Triple H let go and the referee had a word with him allowing Batista to deliver an open right hand taking the taste right out of Christian’s mouth. Christian was pulled back to the middle of the ring by Triple H who dropped to his knees to apply the hold again but Christian elbowed himself free. Triple H let go of his slight hold and Christian crawled to the turnbuckle, he pulled himself up and Triple H ran at him so Christian raises his knee, catching Triple H in the face, as Triple H turned away Christian stood on the second rope, Triple H turned back and Christian leaped off with a tornado DDT taking both men down. Both men slowly got up at about the same time, Christian slightly ahead in the race to get up. Christian quickly seized the initiative and kicked Triple H in the gut and threw him into the turnbuckle, sharply following up with a clothesline. Triple H stumbled forward a bit and Christian clubbed him from behind and in desperation to keep Triple H down began stomping him before holding onto the ropes and standing on the back of Triple H’s head. Evolution we’re trying to will Triple H on as we went to a commercial break!

[COMMERCIAL BREAK]

We return from the break and its amazing how the tables turn in such a short amount of time as Triple H has Christian in a sleeper, both men are standing but Christian is showing signs of falling down. Triple H puts his foot behind the knee of Christian and pushes down sending Christian to his knees. Triple H wrenches the sleeper around a bit more as the referee checks on Christian, he raises the arm…it falls, he raises it again…it falls, but before he can raise it again Christian manages to elbow Triple H in the gut and while loosening the grip Triple H frantically holds on and Christian delivers a stunner sort of move, but JR and King refer to it as a jaw breaker. Triple H staggers back and Christian gets up but runs into a raised knee from Triple H, that’s how its done he shots, obviously referring to when Christian done it earlier. Flair applauds at ringside with Batista shouting “finish him” at Triple H. Triple H complies and stuffs Christian between his legs, Pedigree, no! Christian back dropped Triple H over, Triple H gets up a little shocked and hurt at once and Christian goes behind grabs his arms, turns and drops down! Unprettier! Tomko takes Flair and Batista down on the outside with a double clothesline as Trish Stratus pulls Triple H’s foot down not allowing him to kick out! One…two…three! Christian’s done it, Christian wins and he isn’t sticking around long as he rounds up his troops (a.k.a Trish and Tomko) before running off up the ramp leaving a frustrated Triple H in the ring.

Jim Ross: “ Christian done it King! Christian won! ”

Jerry Lawler: “ I…a…I…I don’t believe it…I’m in total shock JR and why? Because Christian cheated that’s why! ”

Jim Ross: “ We could argue all night and it won’t get us anywhere so I’ll just say that cheating isn’t soil that Evolution are too unfamiliar with, speaking of whom have been joined by the fourth member, Randy Orton and look like they have something to say ahead of the 20 Man Battle Royal! ”

[We go back to the ring where Ric Flair, Batista, Randy Orton and Triple H, collectively known as Evolution stand in the ring. Triple H stands in front of the rest and raises a microphone to his mouth.]

Triple H: “ What you just witnessed was grade a cheating, that’s what it was. ”

[Ric Flair applauds in agreement, as always.]

Triple H: “ It’s something I’m not going to stand for, now I’m really pissed and Christian you’re lucky neither you or your goon is in this battle royal because you couldn’t image the amount of pain we would inflict on you, instead we’ll have to settle for someone else, infact we will have to settle for sixteen other people to destroy, so come on, bring those idiots out here and let me win! ”

[Triple H drops the microphone as Ric Flair massages his shoulders and we go to another commercial break, the penultimate of the commercial breaks.]

SmackDown! Preview

SmackDown is preparing for a big show this Thursday, as General Manager has already booked four matches for the show!

*Rene Dupree and Dawn Marie vs. John Cena and Torrie Wilson*

Last week on SmackDown, Kurt Angle informed Michael Cole through his headset that Torrie Wilson and the WWE United States champion John Cena would team up to take on Rene Dupree and Dawn Marie in a mixed tag team match. Dupree and Cena have been at each other's throats since Rene Dupree joined SmackDown from RAW, and Dupree has been after Cena's US title. As much as Angle considers himself to be a great American, he hates John Cena so much, he is even willing to help a French-man take the US title from him!

*Mark Jindrak vs. Rob Van Dam*

Mark Jindrak has been on a role of late since having been taken under the wing of Theodore Long. Long has helped Jindrak to realise his potential, and the "Reflection of Perfection" is looking to leave the 'Mark of Perfection' on Rob Van Dam. Van Dam, however, will be in a bad mood after tasting wood at the hands of Bubba Ray and D-Von Dudley last week on SmackDown!

*--No.1 Contenders Match for the WWE Tag Team titles--*

Basham Brothers vs. the Dudley Boyz vs. the Full Blooded Italians vs. Billy Gunn and Hardcore Holly

Speaking of the Dudley Boyz, they have a chance to earn the right to face the champions, Charlie Haas and Rico if they can overcome three other teams who are hungry for the gold. The Dudleyz could become 18-time Tag Team champions, but the FBI want a tase of some WWE gold for the first time, and the Bashams are looking to become 2-time champions. Gunn and Holly are veteran tag team wrestlers as well, and will want to pick up their first Tag Team titles as a team at the Great American Bash.

*John "Bradshaw" Layfield vs. Rey Mysterio*

Rey Mysterio has been fed to the wolves here, as he will return from being put through a table by the Dudleyz and go right into a match with the no.1 contender for Eddie Guerrero's WWE title. JBL has promised to take the WWE title from Eddie, and will gladly go through Mysterio to get there. Mysteiro, however will want to slow Bradshaw's momentum by giving him a devastating loss here, that could swing the advantage to Eddie Guerrero.

In addition to this, Chavo Guerrero has stated he will put his title on the line against any MALE Cruiserweight that will step up and challenge him. Who will respond to Chavo's challenge? The last time Chavo laid out a similar challenge, Jacqueline defeated him for the title! Will this match have the same outcome?

27th May 2004

Announcers: Michael Cole and Tazz

Cole: Hello and welcome to SmackDown! Last week we went off the air after seeing the Dudley Boyz destroy Rob Van Dam and Rey Mysterio by driving them through a table. Tonight, the Dudleyz will be in tag team action when they challenge for the no.1 contender spot in a big four-team battle.

Tazz: The Dudley Boyz have to be firm favourites due to their history. They have held the Tag Team titles an amazing 17 times in ECW, WCW and WWE.

Cole: But you can’t count out Billy Gunn and Hardcore Holly. Between them, they’ve held the WWE Tag Team titles 12 times!

Tazz: No doubt that this match will be very a close match, and anyone could really come out on top!

Cole: We’re getting things started with the big-mixed tag match!

John Cena and Torrie Wilson vs. Rene Dupree and Dawn Marie

John Cena and Rene Dupree were to start out, but Dupree smirked, and tagged in Dawn Marie! That meant John Cena had to tag out to Torrie Wilson, thus keeping the United States champion and his challenger apart for a while longer. Torrie immediately took Dawn down with a spear and started pummelling her on the mat. Dawn and Torrie rolled around on the mat for a bit before Torrie picked Dawn up by the hair and dragged her to the corner. She then started laying in with right hands…but Dupree ran along the apron and clothslined her to the mat! The referee admonished Dupree, but he just smirked and claimed he didn’t do anything! Dawn tagged out to Dupree, who walked up to Torrie and did his ‘French tickler’ dance! He walked closer to Torrie, but Cena had had enough and jumped in and clotheslined Dupree and returned to the apron. Cena reached for the tag and got the fans behind Torrie…who made the hot tag! Cena took Dupree down several times with clotheslines before pumping up the shoes and hitting the Five Knuckle Shuffle! Just as he was signalling for the FU, Dawn Marie hit him in the back! Cena turned around, grabbed Dawn by the hair as she went to leave, and asked the crowd if he should ‘punish’ her! Just as he was going to FU her, Torrie came in and asked to take fight her. Cena obliged and tossed her to Torrie who pummelled her with rights and lefts before rolling to the outside. While that was happening, Kurt Angle’s assistant, Luther Raines ran down to the ring and delivered a devastating powerbomb to Cena! Luther jumped out of the ring, and walked directed the referee’s attention to Dupree, who was covering Cena! He counted 1…2…3! Dupree pins the United States champion!

Winners: Rene Dupree and Dawn Marie

On the outside, Luther grabbed Torrie Wilson by the hair and picked her off of Dawn Marie. He held onto her by her hair, as General Manager Kurt Angle’s music hit!

Angle came up onto the stage via a lift, and Luther proceeded to drag her up to him.

Angle: Well, well, well. Torrie Wilson. I bet you were wondering to yourself; “why did Kurt Angle put my job on the line at Judgment Day?” Well you don’t need to wonder anymore. This is the reason…

*Angle points to his wheelchair*

…This should be you! But no, I saved your life when the Big Show was going to chokeslam you off of the stage! But what thanks do I get? Nothing! You are an ungrateful blonde bimbo, and that is why I tried to get you fired. You are ungrateful, and there is no place on SmackDown for people like you. So, next week on SmackDown we’re going to have ourselves a little match. In this match…your job will be on the line! I’m not going to let you know who your opponent is, but you will find out next week. Enjoy your time on SmackDown Torrie. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Luther let go of Torrie, who ran off to the back crying.

Dupree: Mr. Angle sir. Hold on just a second! I would like to make a suggestion about my United States title match at the ‘Great American’ Bash.

Angle: And what might that be Rene?

Dupree: Well, I was thinking about it, and I thought it would be a good idea to add a little, how do you say; stipulation to the match.

Angle: Hmmm…okay, what do you propose?

Dupree: Well, seen as you have your own surprise for little Ms. Wilson next week, I think I shall keep it as a surprise as well. But I’ll let you know now; I don’t want zees filthy, ugly people knowing about it.

Rene Dupree whispered something in Angle’s ear, and the General Manager seemed to like the idea.

Angle: I LOVE that idea Rene! You’ve got it. At the Great American Bash, it’ll be you against John Cena in a…well, you’ll just have to wait and see.

87%

Commercial Break

Cole: Welcome back everyone. I can’t believe the heinous act at the hands of Luther Raines before the break. He came into the ring when the referee wasn’t looking and powerbombed US champion John Cena, allowing Rene Dupree to pin him!

Tazz: Well, I gotta agree there, it was uncalled for.

Cole: But then he grabbed a hold of Torrie Wilson; and he blatantly hurt her! He dragged her up to Kurt Angle, who then verbally abused her!

Tazz: That was quite a site to see; and not a good one at that! But Angle announced that Torrie would have to defend her job again, this time against a surprise opponent.

Cole: Yeah, and I’m almost afraid to ask who that is! The show goes on, and up next, Booker T takes on Funaki. Last week on SmackDown, Funaki had some tough questions for Booker T, and although he didn’t show it, he was quite annoyed about it!

Tazz: Yeah, I heard that after he beat Kidman, he went back and blamed Funaki for Undertaker’s ‘light show’!

Cole: Booker T really has some issues partner. Well, here comes Funaki, and it’s time for the match.

Booker T vs. Funaki

Funaki stood in the ring and patiently awaited the appearance of Booker T. Booker came down to the ring, no fancy pyro or anything as he got in the ring and attacked Funaki before the bell even rung! Booker laid into Funaki, and didn’t let the cruiserweight from Japan get a shot in at all in the early goings. Booker T aimed to take Funaki’s head off with his crescent kick, but Funaki ducked it and started punching Booker in the midsection! Funaki pummelled Booker into the corner and turned around to clap to the crowd, but as soon as he turned to face Booker he was laid out with a clothesline! Booker said ‘that’s it’ and delivered the Book End, and made the pin.

Winner: Booker T

Much like last week, just as Booker was going to leave, he turned round and administered some more pain unto his opponent. He picked him up and delivered another Book End, before hitting the Axe Kick. Just as Booker stood up, the lights went out and the Undertaker’s gongs sounded! Booker looked up at the TitanTron, saw nothing, and hit yet another Book End on Funaki! Booker smirked, pointed at the TitanTron before walking off to the back.

79%

Cole: Booker T is a changed man. On RAW he was such a fun loving happy guy. But now he’s on SmackDown…he’s just become a bully! He’s nothing more than a bully!

Tazz: Well he just killed Funaki I think, but there’s something you didn’t mention.

Cole: What’s that Tazz?

Tazz: Booker didn’t seem at all scared when the Undertaker’s gong sounded! He just smirked and acted as if nothing had happened!

Cole: Well, Undertaker is a dark man. He likes to scare his ‘prey’ so to speak, by making them think he’s there when he isn’t. Maybe Booker T realises this, and isn’t scared anymore.

Tazz: Anything could happen between these two; especially with the way things have been going.

Cole: Well up next is the four-way elimination match to determine the no.1 contenders for the WWE Tag Team titles at the Great American Bash! The Basham Brothers, Hardcore Holly and Billy Gunn, the FBI, and the Dudley Boyz. One of these four teams will meat Charlie Haas and Rico for the WWE Tag Team titles June 13th at the Great American Bash!

Commercial Break

Cole: Welcome back, and much like last week we’ve been joined at the announce table by Paul Heyman. Paul, I was wondering; do you actually work here yet?

Heyman: Well Michael Cole, I am very pleased you asked me that. Yes, yes I do. Kurt Angle gave me a job yesterday! So I am now officially a part of the SmackDown brand.

Tazz: So we’ll be seeing a lot more of you then?

Heyman: Why yes you will Tazz! Isn’t that great?

Tazz: …

--No.1 Contenders for the WWE Tag Team titles--

The Basham Brothers vs. FBI vs. Hardcore Holly and Billy Gunn vs. the Dudley Boyz

This was under elimination rules, and only two men can be in the ring at any time. Johnny “the Bull” Stamboli and Hardcore Holly started things off. The two, big hardhitters went at it and left nothing in the back, as both men wanted the Tag Team gold. “The Bull” was on the receiving end of a lot of punishment from Holly, and quickly tagged out to Nunzio. Nunzio looked around, and entered the ring…but then ran over and tagged in Danny Basham and exited the ring! Danny and Hardcore went at it, with Holly hitting his trademark dropkick before tagging in Billy Gunn. Billy pounded Basham into a corner and signalled for a Stinger splash. He geared up, but Danny dropped out of the way and tagged in Nunzio again! Nunzio tried to do what he did before, but Hardcore laid him out with a clothesline on the apron! Gunn picked him up and delivered the Fame-Asser and pinned Nunzio, eliminating the FBI! Almost immediately after the referee counted Nunzio’s shoulders down, Bubba Dudley entered the ring and hit an axe handle the Gunn, followed by and elbow and another axe handle. Bubba isolated Billy Gunn, and made quick regular tags with D-Von. The Dudleyz signalled for the 3D, but Hardcore had had enough and attacked both Dudleyz, one after the other. Hardcore pounded D-Von towards the Basham’s corner, and Doug made a blind tag with D-Von. Hardcore whipped D-Von into the far corner, Doug came off the top rope with a clothesline to Hardcore’s surgically repaired neck.

Cole: Folks, we gotta take a break! Don’t go anywhere!

Commercial Break

Cole: Welcome back, all through the break…

Heyman: All through the break, the Dudley Boyz have been dominant over Hardcore Holly and Billy Gunn! They taken EVERYTHING they could lash out, but they’ve just brushed it off like *that*.

Tazz: You’re right Paul. Hardcore and Billy haven’t been able to get a rhythm going since Doug Basham took Hardcore’s neck out earlier!

The Dudleyz were again isolating hardcore Holly, and Bubba hit a hard back bodydrop. He then went over to Billy Gunn and taunted him into the ring, to which the referee tried to stop. With the ref’s back turned, the Dudleyz went to hit their wassup…but Hardcore rolled through on Bubba and rolled him up! D-Von lost his balance and crotched himself on the turnbuckle! Hardcore only managed a two count, and began crawling to make a tag. Although he was initially aiming for Billy Gunn, Danny Basham stretched out and tagged himself in! Danny started pounding away at Bubba Ray Dudley, who had just recovered from nearly being pinned by Billy Gunn, and Danny jumped in like a wolf smelling wounded prey. Danny tried to life Bubba up for a backdrop, but to no avail. Bubba elbowed him in his mouth, and with D-Von’s assistance they hit a reverse 3-D!!! Bubba pinned Danny, the Basham’s are out! It was Bubba and Hardcore Holly who started the final part…but the Dudleyz pulled a fast one, and it was D-Von that jumped Hardcore from behind! He made a blind tag earlier. D-Von delivered a forearm to the neck of Holly, and then delivered a neckbreaker. He proceeded to lock on a dragon sleeper on the surgically repaired neck of Hardcore Holly. Holly was almost done for, but came to life after his arm was dropped the second time, and got to his feet with elbows to D-Von’s stomach. Hardcore whipped D-von to the ropes before hitting a big dropkick! Both men were down and out, and the fans were cheering Holly to reach Billy Gunn…and he did! Gunn came into the ring and cleaned house of the Dudley Boyz and signalled for the Fame-Asser. Bubba came at him…and felt the Fame-Asser! But behind the referee’s back, D-Von lowblowed Billy Gunn, and then hit a modified reverse DDT to pick up the win!!!

Winners and no.1 contenders for the WWE Tag Team titles: the Dudley Boyz

Paul Heyman got up from his announce table and raised the Dudleyz hands before he accompanied them to the back.

Cole: I can’t believe those damn Dudleyz! D-Von knew they would lose, so he cheated to attain victory!

Tazz: Well Cole, you obviously didn’t hear Paul Heyman say that the Dudley Boyz would return to their roots, and that is classic Dudley Boyz right there!

Cole: Well, in any event, the Dudleyz will take on Charlie Haas and Rico for the WWE Tag Team titles on June 13th at the Great American Bash. But stay tuned guys, because up next is Chavo Guerrero vs. the world!

Commercial Break

Cole: Well it’s time Tazz!

Tazz: Yes it is! After Chavo and his dad beat Jacqueline last week, Chavo made it clear he wanted to challenge anyone to a match for the Cruiserweight title this week on SmackDown.

Cole: Well, we don’t have to wait any longer, as here comes Chavo and Chavo Classic!

The Chavo’s came out to the ring with a smirk across their faces.

Chavo Classic: Well everyone it’s time for my son to take on the world! Any Cruiserweight in the back who thinks that they can beat the greatest Cruiserweight champion in this companies history!

Chavo: I know it’s a frightening prospect! Getting in the ring with me…Chavo Guerrero! So, whoever is willing to answer my challenge…come on out now!

There was silence for a few seconds…until the lights went out and some very familiar music hit the speakers!

Cole: It’s Jeff Hardy! Oh my god! Jeff Hardy is back in the WWE!

Tazz: My god Jeff looks in great condition!

Cole: Look at the Chavo’s faces! They didn’t expect this AT ALL!

The Chavo’s cleared the ring, as Jeff ran down and went to each turnbuckle…before Chavo whacked him in the back on one of them, starting the match.

--WWE Cruiserweight title--

Jeff Hardy vs. Chavo Guerrero © w/ Chavo Classic

Chavo started off strongly, but the fans in attendance didn’t let up once in their support of Jeff! Chavo hit a snap suplex, and turned to the fans for adulation, but only got even more boos. He then turned around and was met by striking forearms from Jeff! Jeff whipped Chavo into the turnbuckle, and proceeded to hit an amazing moonsault kick before clotheslining him over the top rope to the floor! The fans went wild, as Jeff then launched himself over the top rope into the arms of Chavo and his dad, knocking both men to the floor! Jeff slowly got back to his feet and tossed the younger Chavo into the ring and attempted to pin him, but only scored a two count. Jeff went to pick him back up, but was met with a thumb to the eyes, as Chavo rolled him up in a small package with the tights…1…2…2 and a half! The referee didn’t spot the blatant cheating by the champion, but Hardy managed to kick out! Chavo proceeded to mock his uncle Eddie by going to the rolling vertical suplexes, but after the second, Jeff mustered enough strength to pull off a tornado DDT in midair! The fans applauded the move, as Jeff climbed to the top rope to finish Chavo off with the Swanton Bomb…but Chavo Classic jumped on the apron and crothed Jeff on the turnbuckle! Chavo recovered and hit a spike DDT off the top rope to the mat, before pinning Jeff with his feet all over the second rope!

Chavo Classic handed his son his title, and he helped him to the back. In the background was Jeff Hardy shaking his head as he watched his opponent leave after he cheated to win.

Commercial Break

Just as SmackDown returns from the break, a video of the closing seconds of the previous match is shown, to boos from the crowd.

Cole: Well, as you’ve just seen, Jeff Hardy has returned to WWE! But this time he is with SmackDown, and he could, and most probably should be the new WWE Cruiserweight champion.

Tazz: Jeff Hardy came out, nobody knew he was here, and every single female in this audience shrieked, I think, like they’ve never shrieked before!

Cole: Yeah I think I’ve gone half deaf partner! Up now, John “Bradshaw” Layfield is backstage with Josh Matthews.

Josh: Thank you Michael Cole. Mr. Layfield, tonight you go one-on-one with Rey Mysterio 17 days before you challenge his good friend Eddie Guerrero for the WWE championship. What are your feelings about these two matches?

JBL: What are my feelings? Well, my feelings are this. I don’t care whether it’s Eddie Guerrero; I don’t care whether it’s Rey Mysterio. It doesn’t matter to me, because they represent the same thing to me. They both represent all these stinking morons in the crowd! That’s right, they represent the fans. I mean, the sorta people that cheer for Rey Mysterio and Eddie Guerrero have no morals. They don’t understand greatness, and what they don’t understand, they boo. And they don’t understand me. They don’t understand how I have become so rich and climbed to the very top of the financial ladder while they sit at the very bottom, leaching off of the government for handouts. So what I am going to do, is go out there and beat Rey Mysterio like his momma should’ve done years ago!

Rob Van Dam vs. “The Reflection of Perfection” Mark Jindrak w/ Theodore Long

Theodore Long took time with his client’s entrance, walking down to the fans on either side of the rampway, and pointed out his client’s perfection to them. The arena nearly erupted when Van Dam’s music hit, but when “Mr. Thursday Night” entered the ring and headed towards the turnbuckle, but was cut off by Mark Jindrak standing in his way! Jindrak prevented him from going to the second rope to ‘show off’, so Van Dam did it in front of him to his face! Jindrak didn’t like it one bit and swung at RVD, who ducked and kicked him in the backside, Jindrak turned round and attempted to kick RVD in the stomach, RVD caught the leg, stepped over and nailed him with a step over heel kick. Jindrak fell to the mat as RVD leaned down and got in his face. He pointed to himself three times with his thumbs and said "R…V…D" in his face. Jindrak quickly got back to his feet, pissed off. Van Dam seemed to be really enjoying himself out there, but Jindrak certainly wasn’t as he went over to confer with Theodore Long. Once he finished, he faked a lock-up and kicked Van Dam in the miod-section before punching him square in the face! He then showed off his strength by picking him up over his head and launching him to the outside! Jindrak stood in the ring, and looked down on RVD on the outside, smiling at what he had done. Jindrak brought RVD back into the ring, and dominated for a few more minutes. Jindrak got over-zealous, and took too long to administer a powerbomb, allowing RVD to toss him over his shoulder! Jindrak clambered into the corner, and was soon met by the shoulders of Van Dam! RVD then laid him out with a martial arts kick from the top rope, before going back up and hitting the Five Star Frog Splash! After writhing around in pain for a few seconds, Van Dam covered Jindrak and picked up the victory!

Winner: Rob Van Dam

Van Dam, who was prevented from doing so earlier, went to the second rope and pointed to himself as the fans sung along “R…V…D”. As soon as he jumped off the rope, he was met by Mark Jindrak who hit the Mark of Perfection out of nowhere! He kicked Van Dam in the mouth, before spitting on him and leaving the ring!

Cole: My god Tazz, that was totally uncalled for by Mark Jindrak!

Tazz: no doubt, no doubt Cole. But this kid has a bright future ahead of him on SmackDown, and what better way to kick it off then lay a beating on one of our top guys, “Mr. Thursday Night” Rob Van Dam.

The cameras cut to the back, where Charlie Haas, Rico and Miss Jackie are in their locker room.

Rico: Oh do come on Charles! You know it’s a good idea! I just know it’ll look wonderful on you!

Haas: (from behind a door)…it looks stupid! I don’t even know why I’m doing this! The colours just don’t suit me…what the hell…?

Rico: Oh come come my good friend…(Rico peeps in the room)…oo that looks stunning! Come on out! Show Jackie! Show Jackie!

Haas: (Haas takes a deep breath)…ok Rico, here I come!

Charlie Haas stepped out from behind the door in nothing but a blue thong!

Haas: What the…? You didn’t say there were cameras here Rico!!!

Haas runs back into the room as quick as he came out. As soon as he does that, the door bursts open and Bubba Ray, D-Von and Paul Heyman walk in. The Dudleyz stand inches away from Rico.

Bubba: 17 days Rico! 17 days until those belts are ours! So cherish them while they are yours, because come the Great American Bash, they will be around the waists of the Dudley Boyz once again.

D-Von: Oh testify my brother!

The Dudleyz turn to leave, so Rico turns around as well, looking as if he had seen a ghost, but turning your back on a Dudley is not advisable. Heyman quickly handed D-Von a chair and he proceeded to smash it over Rico’s head! Rico collapsed in a heap, as Miss Jackie screamed. The Dudleyz and Heyman left, and Charlie Haas walked out of the room in a tracksuit.

Haas: I’m never doing that again…what the? What happened? What the hell happened?

Haas and Jackie checked on Rico, as SmackDown went to its final break.

Commercial Break

Cole: We just witnessed the Dudley Boyz cracking Rico’s skull with a steel chair, and the sound was absolutely horrible!

Tazz: There’s no doubt about it; the Dudleyz have sent a big message to the champions; they’re coming for them!

Cole: Well up next is the main event; John “Bradshaw” Layfield takes on Rey Mysterio in one-on-one competition.

Rey Mysterio vs. John “Bradshaw” Layfield

Rey Rey came out with taped up ribs after the assault at the hands of the Dudleyz last week, when they drove Rob Van Dam through Mysterio and a table. Bradshaw came out, as per usual, in his white, horn-clad, white limo. He got out and was met by a huge chorus of boos after his earlier comments. He looked around, and stuck his nose up at every single fan around ringside. He then got into an argument with a fan holding an Eddie Guerrero sign, and that was Mysterio’s cue! As soon as JBL turned around, Mysterio was in full flight and landed right on top of him! Mysterio had to move quickly and did so with quick punches. He rolled Bradshaw into the ring, but was kicked in the head when he tried to slide in after him. Bradhsaw kicked him four times more in the head before picking him up…and knocking him back down with a big clubbing forearm to the upper-back. He pounded him down on the mat before tossing him shoulder first into the turnbuckle. Bradshaw proceeded to work on the now injured shoulder with an armbar. Mysterio managed to wriggle his way out of it and bounced off the ropes with a dropkick to the face! Mysterio went to the apron and attempted to ‘drop the dime’…but Bradshaw moved out of the way, picked him up and administered a shoulder-breaker to the injured shoulder. Bradshaw signalled it was time to end it, and sent Mysterio into the ropes. Bradshaw ran into the adjacent ropes…but instead of hitting Mysterio, he killed the referee dead with a Clothesline from Hell! Bradshaw turned around quickly and caught Mysterio coming off the top, and hit the Stock Market Crash for a pin, but there was no referee! Bradshaw tried to revive the fallen Nick Patrick, but to no avail. While this was happening, the fans went crazy as WWE champion Eddie Guerrero raced down to the ring and went toe-to-toe with JBL! He took him off his feet a backdrop, and went into full “Latino Heat” mode before going to the top rope…and hitting the Frog Splash! Eddie disappeared into the crowd, as Mysterio rolled to the apron…and managed to successfully ‘drop the dime’! Mysterio rolled into the cover as referee Brian Hebner raced down to administer the count…1…2…3! Mysterio pinned Bradshaw!

Winner: Rey Mysterio

Announcers: Josh Matthews and Bill DeMott

Matthews: Welcome to Veloicty everybody, and we have a packed show from top to bottom for you!

DeMott: That’s right, Billy Kidman and Paul London team up to take on Akio and Sakoda.

Matthews: Nunzio of the Full Blooded Italians takes on Spike Dudleyz.

DeMott: And in the main event, Rene Dupree faces off against Billy Gunn. What a show.

Matthews: That’s right, and in addition to that we’ll show you the return of a certain superstar to SmackDown, and the shocking closing moments of the main event from SmackDown between Rey Mysterio and John “Bradshaw” Layfield!

Kyo Dai vs. Billy Kidman and Paul London

Kyo Dai have been wondering around lately wandering why they were not involved in the no.1 contenders match on SmackDown, and they’ve gone on record as saying that they are not happy about it, and will definitely be gunning for the titles in the near future. The bigger Sakoda started out with London, who was hot off a win over a young talent named Joey Ryan last week on Velocity. Sakoda soon found out that his size and strength advantage didn’t really mean much against the amazing Paul London, who avoided everything Sakado dished out! London took Sakoda off his feet with a beautiful standing dropkick, before tagging in Billy Kidman. Kidman and London then hit stereo-dropkicks before Kidman covered, and got a two. Kidman then looked to hit a suplex, but Sakoda blocked it, and hit one of his own before tagging in Akio. Akio used his quick feet and martial arts background to his advantage against Kidman, and scored a near fall after a spinning heel kick. Akio went over to tag in Sakoda, but instead hit a quick Dragon suplex out of nowhere for the…1…2…3!

Winners: Kyo Dai

Matthews: Woah! Akio had everyone thinking he would tag in Sakoda, but he turned around, hit the suplex and got the win!

DeMott: That’s what Kyo Dai are all about; it could all change in a second! They are so quick, especially that Akio. You have to be on your guard at all times, and Billy Kidman presumed that Akio was tagging out, and that was his undoing. That was ‘the Turning Point’.

Matthews: You’re right there. This is World Wrestling Entertainment; to presume something is to lose! We’ve gotta take a break right now, but when we come back we’ll show you the closing moments of SmackDown!

Commercial Break

Matthews: Welcome back. SmackDown’s main event saw Rey Mysterio take on John “Bradshaw” Layfield in a match that many expected JBL to come out on top, but it didn’t quite go down that easy!

Highlights of:

Jeff Hardy vs. Chavo Guerrero © w/ Chavo Classic

Chavo started off strongly, but the fans in attendance didn’t let up once in their support of Jeff! Chavo hit a snap suplex, and turned to the fans for adulation, but only got even more boos. He then turned around and was met by striking forearms from Jeff! Jeff whipped Chavo into the turnbuckle, and proceeded to hit an amazing moonsault kick before clotheslining him over the top rope to the floor! The fans went wild, as Jeff then launched himself over the top rope into the arms of Chavo and his dad, knocking both men to the floor! Jeff slowly got back to his feet and tossed the younger Chavo into the ring and attempted to pin him, but only scored a two count. Jeff went to pick him back up, but was met with a thumb to the eyes, as Chavo rolled him up in a small package with the tights…1…2…2 and a half! The referee didn’t spot the blatant cheating by the champion, but Hardy managed to kick out! Chavo proceeded to mock his uncle Eddie by going to the rolling vertical suplexes, but after the second, Jeff mustered enough strength to pull off a tornado DDT in midair! The fans applauded the move, as Jeff climbed to the top rope to finish Chavo off with the Swanton Bomb…but Chavo Classic jumped on the apron and crothed Jeff on the turnbuckle! Chavo recovered and hit a spike DDT off the top rope to the mat, before pinning Jeff with his feet all over the second rope!

Nunzio w/ Johnny “the Bull” Stamboli vs. Spike Dudley

Both men are former ECW Tag Team champions, although Spike has developed into more of a singles wrestler, whereas Nunzio has formed a formidable tag team with Johnny “the Bull” Stamboli. Nunzio used his technical expertise to force Spike onto the mat before locking in a Boston-crab on little Spike. Nunzio used a lot of submission holds, trying to wear down the legs of Spike before Spike managed to fight his way out of a single leg crab, and twisted his way into a standing position where he launched Nunzio into the turnbuckle! Spike pulled down the straps, pounded his chest and knocked Nunzio to the floor in the corner. He then took a run up before stamping all over the FBI member! Spike called for it, and went to hit the Dudley Dog, but his leg gave way while he was running up the turnbuckle. Nunzio took advantage of this and locked in the Boston crab tight! Spike screamed in pain, and finally had no choice but to submit to the painful hold!

Winner: Nunzio

Matthews: What a big, big win for Nunzio here!

DeMott: No doubt about it coming right off the back of the defeat on SmackDown, he didn’t let it have any effect on his performance. ‘The Turning Point’ was Nunzio’s technical work. With that, he damaged Spike’s leg so much that he was unable to hit the Dudley Dog, therefore allowing Nunzio to lock in that deadly Boston Crab for the submission.

Another video aired for the Japanese man, now known only as “Suzuki”. It showed a similar video to last weeks, but this time said “06.13.04” then faded out.

Matthews: Well, Suzuki it is! June 13th is the date of the Great American Bash, I guess that’s when he will debut!

DeMott: Well the Great American Bash just got a whole lot better!

Matthews: Don’t go anywhere, because after the break Rene Dupree takes on Billy Gunn!

Commercial Break

Rene Dupree vs. Billy Gunn w/ Hardcore Holly

Dupree came out, as usual in his blue robe and waving around the French flag. Fellow veteran and tag team partner Hardcore Holly accompanied Billy Gunn to the ring. Gunn and Dupree locked up, and then separated. Dupree stepped back and did his ‘outrageous French dance’ to a chorus of boos before they locked up again, and Dupree locked Gunn in a headlock. Gunn pushed Dupree to the ropes, but he was knocked to the mat when Dupree hit him with a shoulder block. Dupree again did his ‘outrageous French dance’ while standing over Billy Gunn, who grabbed a hold of him and rolled him into a small package for a two count. Gunn and Dupree exchanged periods when they were in control, with Gunn getting more offence in out of the two. The closing moments of the match saw Billy Gunn in firm control until his attempted jackhammer was thwarted when Rene Dupree rolled through on the pin for a two count! Dupree then quickly picked up Gunn and delivered the Au Revoir (modified Michinoku Driver) and made the pin…1…2…3!

Winner: Rene Dupree

DeMott: Wow! That win came out of nowhere!

Matthews: Well I guess it’s just that sort of night. All the matches have ended like that; nobody expected anybody to win how they did.

DeMott: Without a doubt, ‘the Turning Point’ here was Billy Gunn’s attempt to hit that brainbuster slam of his and as soon as Dupree rolled through it, there was a distinct possibility of Dupree picking up the win.

Matthews: Well that’s all we have time for tonight, tune in Thursday for SmackDown, later days!

Sunday Night Heat

30th May 2004

Our hosts for the night are Jim Cornette and Al Snow

Maven d. John Heidenreich

Both are faces but Maven was playing more of the face roll. The crowd didn’t seem to like Heidenreich as much since he was last on television since after he wrestled someone they often disappeared for a few weeks (namely Steven Richards), many critics wish he’d wrestle himself, the match would suck, but he’d probably injure himself so it balances out. Maven was being dominated early on by Heidenreich before Maven hit an explosive dropkick and finished off with a Standing Tornado DDT.

Raw Recap

[The screen changes showing a logo in the bottom saying “ During The Break ” it is still at the moment and shows Kane walking down a corridor. It comes to life and he is infact walking down the corridor when he is stopped by Eric Bischoff.]

Eric Bischoff: “ Dammit Kane, this charade has gone on long enough and it ends on June 27th, I don’t care if either of you win my tournament you will fight at Bad Blood. Kane vs. Matt Hardy, one on one…in a…a…dammit, a fifteen foot high steel cage. ”

[Kane smiles slightly, although it’s a frightening smile non the less. However he grunts as he rolls his eyes upwards, Bischoff looks at him and backs off before walking away, looking back frequently but Kane just stands their laughing and we go back to the commentators.]

The Hurricane d. Chad Collyer

Chad Collyer played a heel, got a little heat by shouting at the fans on the way to the ring. The crowd were always going to be behind the Super Hero whose trainee was not at Heat today, good riddance. A good technical encounter from the two and Collyer was doing his best to impress the road agents in the back to see if he could be signed on permanently. Hurricane went for the chokeslam but failed, however he came back with a superkick to the jaw of Collyer followed by a nice 450 splash off the top, 1-2-3. Good match but you could see right through Collyer that he was trying too hard.

( 67/59/92 )

Screw The Reflection Of Perfection!

Some hyperactive, money style music picks up as Jonathon Coachman walks out to the ring getting some boos from the crowd, in tow are Garrison Cade & Test, the trio saunter to the ring with Coach wearing black pants, white long shirt and shades and bandana. Test and Cade are ready for action and don’t seem as “happy” as Coach.

Jonathon Coachman: “ My two clients here have something they want me to say and that’s this; SCREW THE REFLECTION OF PERFECTION! Kurt Angle had Jindrak on SmackDown! But didn’t want to have Garrison Cade come either? What the hell is Kurt on, smack? Look at this physical specimen in Garrison Cade, this is more than anything Mark Jindrak could have and we all know how much of a tag team wrestle Garrison Cade is, so let me introduce to you, Test! Cade has moved on everyone, he’s past Mark Jindrak, Jindrak has Teddy Long humping his leg but soon Test and Cade will have tag team gold around their waist and Mark Jindrak will have nada, because he is on the inferior brand. Bring out those two suckers who are gonna get pummelled. ”

( 63 )

Test & Garrison Cade w/ Jonathon Coachman d. Johnny Jeter & Brent Albright

The duo showed potential despite getting much offence in as the purpose was to make Test & Cade look good. The duo sold everything well but Test and Cade both performed well too. Cade took Jeter down with a dropkick and Albright got a big boot as the two set up for their double team, Brent Albright got a powerbomb with his neck hitting Cade’s knee and snapping forward quickly. That was enough for the win but to put some salt on the wounds Test picked up Albright and took him for a Test Drive. Cade ensured Jeter didn’t break up the pin and the 3 count was inevitable. After the match Test and Cade gave Jeter a Full Nelson Driver Dropkick in which Cade dropkicks the opponent which sends them over and Tests nails them with a Full Nelson Driver, which is a German Suplex like move but in a Full Nelson position. Coachman celebrated with his clients afterwards and the screen faded to black.

Rob Van Dam tears calf, out for 9 months

Rob Van Dam tore his left calf muscle in a match with Mark Jindrak over the weekend during a SmackDown! house show.

Van Dam was attempting a martial arts kick off the top rope and landed awkwardly. This is the same move that ended Sid Vicious' wrestling career when he broke his leg.

Van Dam still finished the match despite being in a lot of pain, as Jindrak rolled him up for the win.

This leaves the ranks of SmackDown even thinner then they were before, leaving them with only four legitimate main eventers (if you count Bradshaw!), and one of those, the Undertaker only wrestles part time.

Van Dam was said to be in line for a major push within the next month or two, possibly culiminating in a program with either John "Bradshaw" Layfield or Eddie Guerrero over the WWE championship.
