Plankton coming back and revisiting and reviewing his own diary has reminded me of how much I enjoyed this Diary. It was my second Diary ever and my longest running and most successful one. The last boards ate the post so it's not on these boards I do not believe and I feel like I can continue that one and still put time into my Year of Foley diary. I Loved this diary for how I did make sure there were challengers for the World Title and IC Title and all the belts. I felt I did a very solid job though sometimes the writing needed some help but I felt the booking was pretty solid. Anyway I am going to recap problems and thoughts after each show. Mind you that the first two months were completely lost for the most part due to a collapse of boards long ago before I started saving them. So I didn't re-write those due to how long it had been since I had booked it.

If you want to judge this Diary. Do not on the first two months of recaps cause it gets better as we go cause of the fact I lost those shows and others are fully written.

The Kap Says This Diary Re-Begins Now!

Sunday Night Heat (April 6)

(This was back before I started doing RAW Brand Matches and Smackdown Brand Matches as a competition but merely just to get lower midcarders and under on TV)

Maven beat Chris Nowitski in a Tough Enough Matchup! (63%)

Video hyping Ken Shamrock's return to WWE (73%)

Nunzio beat up on Bill Demott via Chuck Palumbo and Johnny Stamboli! (61%)

Rico beat up on Spike Dudley with help from Rosey and Jamal (66%)

Video promoting the Bisch and a big announcement tommorrow night on RAW! (79%)

Bradshaw beat Kevin Nash clean but in a bad match (60%)

Tommy Dreamer beat Rodney Mack in a Hardcore Match to promote the Hardcore Championship 10 man over the top rope Battle Royale! (65%)

(This was the Worst Sunday Night Heat Show or Any Show in the Diary (55%)

I had to start here because of losing the first Smackdown completely so this is where the Diary originally began for the majority. It was the worst show I ever did ratings wise. I mean but who could think that would be the case with such great matches as Bradshaw beating Kevin Nash....What was I thinking :wacko:

RAW Rating: 78%

I Wanted Goldust to be a serious part of my promotion which is why he would get a victory over Batista. I wanted him out of the stuttering gimmick and into serious mode.

Here is a major booking mistake though when Christian beats Kane cleanly which would never really happen. It was a big mistake and I still regret that one but it was early on and I did need to get into the swing of things. I do like how I had RVD come in. I felt his feud with Rock would elevate him and Rock would benefit as well but I did not book this feud tremendously.

I Did feel Booker vs Chris Jericho was a very good main event choice and made for a strong finish to this RAW.

The Bischoff promo though is setting up what will come to be a very ill-fated match at Backlash between Eric Bischoff and Shane McMahon where Shane breaks his leg during the match. Made the match unwatchable because of the injury and the buildup and blow off was killed in that one injury.

Smackdown Rating: 73%

It becomes apparent at this point that Smackdown is the stacked show of the two. With the Guerreros, Benoit, Rhyno, Lesnar, Angle, Taker, Edge, Hardy, Mysterio. Tank Abbott was signed the week before to come in and make an impact by Shane McMahon...this was my WORST signing to date ever in any game. He was crap and did nothing for the promotion.

This was also the beginning of the Los Guerreros/Team Angle feud over the Belts which was one of my favorite feuds in this 13 Month Diary. I always thought it was very strong but in the beginning you can't tell due to the very brief recaps which was unavoidable so I will do my best in describing the thoughts and plans behind everything. I really never know why Taker and Lesnar were in a first round match for the new American Title. They needed to be on the show I guess but neither were so low as to be in that division.

Monday Night RAW

April 14, 2003

Raw's intro hits and begins playing it's video to all the TV viewers, as well as on the Titantron. Then it cuts to the arena where huge pyro begins going off on the stage as Raw sets to start for the night. Then Lance Storm's music hits and Lance as well as Chief Morley come out onto the stage. They walk down to the ring. Storm rolls under the bottom rope and Morley steps through the ropes but before they can do anything at all the Dudley Boyz music hits. D-Von and Bubba Ray don't come out though as Morley and Storm lean on the top rope watching the ramp way. From behind the time keeper's table over the barricade the Dudleyz come and grabs a table from under the ring and slide it into the ring. They both get in the ring and as Morley turns back towards where the Dudleyz are...3D! 3D Morley is out! Storm turns seeing it happen, He and D-Von begin to slug it out as Bubba sets the table up. Storm swings with a fist but D-Von ducks it and D-Von lifts Storm up and Bubba grabs him by the neck. Reverse 3D Through the Table!! The Dudleyz leave Storm/Morley completely out in the ring!

Jazz vs Trish Stratus

(WWE Women's Championship, Falls Count Anywhere Match)

This match is one of those hard hitting impact matches that Trish and Jazz had last year. This is a very good match for a Women's match which are normally not very good quality wrestling. Jazz hits a big spinebuster in the middle of the match getting a long two count. Trish hits a Chick-Kick for a long two count. Trish tries a Stratusfaction but Jazz ends up sending Trish crashing down onto a trash can that had been brought into the ring. Jazz then quickly locks in her STF and Trish has to tap out! Jazz's music hits and she raises her arms in the air as the Championship is handed to her. Good solid Match by the women as Raw goes to commercial break.

RVD hits several of his trademark kicks which is capped off with a Rolling Thunder and covers Dreamer..1..2...kicSuckt! RVD seems in control when The Rock comes running out onto the stage and running down to the ring. He slides under the bottom rope into the ring as the crowd is erupting in boos and cheers as Rock stances behind RVD. RVD turns around..ROCK BOTTOM! Rock lays RVD out and leaves the ring as Dreamer lays an arm over RVD. Not even noticing what had happened..1...2....3! Tommy Dreamer gets a big win to retain his Hardcore Championship. He rolls out of the ring and staggers to the backstage area. Rock sets up the chair in the ring as if to sit in it. He picks up RVD and whips him to the ropes..DROP TOE HOLD DOWN MASHING RVD'S FACE OFF THE CHAIR! The crowd gives one of those gasp pops as Rock talks trash to RVD as he kicks the mat in pain holding his face. Rock raises his arm in victory and then walks to the backstage area as RVD looks at Rock leaving his face bloodied up!!

The glass shatters with Stone Cold's music hitting as Stone Cold walks out onto the ramp and coming down to the ring. He does his four turnbuckles thing and then Triple H's Music blasts throughout the arena. He comes walking out onto the stage with Ric Flair and Batista behind him as the strobes go off. Batista and Triple H come to the ring and the match is underway. An awesome match ensues with Austin starting off early taking both Batista and Triple H down. Eventully HHH and Batista take control hitting several double team moves as this isn't a tag handicap match. The match begins to sway as Austin hits a stunner on Batista after he'd put HHH down with a spinebuster. He covers Batista after a slow crawl over to him and the count..1...2..HHH broke it up! HHH begins to overpower Austin and hits his Facebuster. HHH goes for his high knee but Austin ducks and Hebner catches it in the face going down. After that happens Booker T! Booker comes running down to the ring and slides under the bottom rope. HHH turns and gets caught with a BOOK END! HHH is down! Austin picks HHH up and..STUNNER! Booker wakes Hebner up and pulls Batista out of the ring as the ref counts HHH down..1...2....3.! Austin wins! A hot main event as Austin stands up and does his usual celebration as Booker slides back in the ring. Triple H down in the ring and Batista on the outside looking on as Raw goes off the air!

Ok so here's the one show I randomly saved out of all the early shows. Don't ask me how or why it happened that way but it did. Now to start with I thought the first half of the show was solid but it went downhill. Now Steiner being beat by Hurricane was not a mistake. I was getting rid of Steiner soon and I wanted to push Hurricane to IC Title level which does happen later. Why did I have Austin walk into Kane's locker room?

Well quite honestly I wanted a swerve for the main event and didn't think of writing it better. I Chalk it up to still being new at writing. It was a bad booking decision and then Morley attacking Austin after the show was a HUGE MISTAKE and it wasn't because of why. I intended someone else to do that attack but booked it and went through the show and found out I had Morley do it instead of someone else. A mistake which I covered up but it never really made a whole lot of sense other than Bischoff not liking Austin.

Chris Benoit defeats a weakened Undertaker in quick fashion by forcing Taker to tap out! (77%)

Smackdown Rating: 75%

This was the beginning of the new generation of Smackdown stars getting pushed and the old ones getting phased out. Alot of Benoit, Edge, Hardy and Rhyno. Hardy and Edge was another of those feuds I felt was doing alot for both guys in the end and I thought I did that feud pretty well though people can tell me otherwise if they want.

Lesnar losing to Rhyno was to show that Lesnar can be beat and that he's not unstoppable. Also to push Rhyno cause I wanted him to become a challenger for the WWE Title at some point because I feel he's under-used and can be done so much better.

John Cena advancing through the chain was just to push him past Abbott without having a horrendous match.

Kanyon and Nunzio on the show was just to get them on the show and to show that Smackdown was all about competition. I needed to do this because of the storyline with the WWE Title. Shane McMahon ruled on the first Smackdown after Mania that due to Angle's injury he would be out 4-6 weeks. (The controversial neck injury) But that he would waive the 30 day Championship rule since he did not want to take his belt away after he sacrificed so much at Mania even with his injury. So that is why nobody sees the WWE Title for the first month. It was very tough but with no PPV for Smackdown on their own. It wasn't as horrible as I thought it could've been. I didn't seperate the brands to ppv's till Bad Blood so the World Heavyweight Title carries the load for the first two months!

I Felt this was the beginning of the better Heat's. When I was using interpromotional matches and more solid workers. Dreamer/Hardy wasn't very good but Mysterio/Noble was off the chain and would've been better if not for Psicosis knocking both men out with Pyscho Stunners.

RAW Rating: 72%

This RAW was not my best effort before a PPV in this diary. The Steiner/HHH match was meant to get both Austin and HHH on the show before Backlash and their Title match. They couldn't do something in the main event cause I needed to keep developing Rock/RVD so I had to put them as the RAW Main Event instead of building HHH/Austin more. Mostly due to the fact they have a history to work off of.

Hurricane defeating Test continues the kid's push beating another guy bigger than him. Now Rock wound up being RVD but it was with some heelish actions to hint at a possible turn. Wasn't sure why cause I wound up never turning Rock but I thought it might be cool to see a Heel Rock again. Just never came around.

Smackdown Rating: 70%

This was a decent show but I dread the Kanyon/Jones match and wonder truthfully why I ever kept him for a couple months. The Cena/Taker match was like real-life where Taker no sold the guy. I kept developing the Cruiserweight Title in this show too and got everyone ready for Backlash. Unfortunately Backlash is also Recapped cause I lost that too which is upsetting cause I really wrote it out really well but gotta wait for Judgement Day for a fully written out PPV.

Goldberg looks down in shock at what he just did..to be turned around by Austin..Stone Cold Stunner!!! Austin then picks up Triple H..STUNNER FOR HIM TOO!!!

Goldberg, Triple H and Ric Flair begin to beatdown horribly on Austin. Backlash goes off the air with the three of them holding their arms high in the air over the fallen Stone Cold (87%)

Backlash Rating: 83%

This show tied up all the old storylines for the majority and started my new ones. Dudleys capturing the Tag Gold was to get the most credible Tag Team on RAW, the belts.

The infamous Shane McMahon/Eric Bischoff match where Shane breaks his leg on the stage was a horrible thing of freak bad luck for me. I was pissed when I saw what happened cause I knew that meant my Smackdown GM was out for a while. Wound up being several months before I brought him back to TV. So Smackdown was run from behind the scenes for a while. Shane had been playing the McMahon I control 25% of WWE card on Bischoff leading up to this match. After this match Bischoff had gloating rights and complete control of RAW with no interference.

Hardy and Edge had another solid match and I wanted to build Hardy some as a credible Heel but as a strong contender too so I had him beat Edge clean. Edgeheads do not dispare as Edge gets his time in this Diary too

Los Guerreros taking down Team Angle barely was to show that while the Guerreros could be beat. It would take a special effort cause the best from Team Angle which could be considered the most solid team in the WWE at the time from a workrate stand point could not take em down.

RVD upsetting Rock was to build RVD even more to show he could be at Rock's level on a PPV Stage.

Jericho and Booker T continued to throw down a great feud and great matches when they stole the show at Backlash with their huge match. (Match of the Night)

Chris Benoit forced Cena to tap out to win the American Championship Tourny and this setup for the next month where Benoit held the belt and had guys chasing him. The American Title Division was stacked for quite a while.

Lesnar defeating Taker for #1 Contendership to Angle's Title was a bad booking decision because I had these two fighting for advancement in the American Title tourny just 2-3 weeks before hand. This was the bad booking decision of the night as well as the worst match of the night due to Taker.

"Stone Cold" Steve Austin capturing the World Heavyweight Title over Triple H was the big shocker of the night due to how it happened. With Goldberg joining Evolution but winding up costing HHH the Title. This storyline could've been good but I did botch this one but it setup for one brutal match at Judgement Day!

I felt my first PPV effort was a decent success but wasn't spectacular. I made sure I corrected that problem with Judgement Day

RAW Rating: 78%

Hurricane and Booker T had their pushes continue. Had to help Booker recover from his loss to Jericho on PPV. This is also the beginning of the ill-fated Orton push with the Hardcore Title. He wound up not being able to take the abuse of having to defend it every week (his condition wasn't recovering fully)

The main event was to give Jericho a bit of a push due to his win at Backlash while keeping the Austin/HHH feud going. I thought this RAW was pretty decent in continuing things out of Backlash and towards Judgement Day. Next up is Smackdown Recap

WWE Smackdown (May 1)

Backstage the show starts with Kurt Angle approaching Brock Lesnar whom was turned around. Angle laughs smacking Lesnar in the face as he turns around and flees! Lesnar in a fury runs after Angle. Angle runs around a corner and then Lesnar does..CRACK! the camera following them comes to see Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin around the corner with chairs which had obviously hit Lesnar! (72%)

Jamie Noble/Psicosis defeats Billy Kidman and Rey Mysterio when Psicosis hits the Psycho Stunner on Mysterio to get the pinfall! (82%)

Kurt Angle talks about how he will easily retain his WWE Championship against Brock Lesnar. That Lesnar has fallen to him before and will again! (92%)

John Cena defeats Edge by hitting Edge in the head with the chain/w lock knocking him down and out. Then finally hitting his DVD to put Edge down for the three count. (79%)

Smackdown Rating: 76%

This was continued the Smackdown New Generation as we see Sean O'Haire for the first time. He does lose but I wanted him against Rhyno and show he can keep with some of the big boys on Smackdown. Angle and Lesnar continue building their feud.

Cena and Edge was to push Cena with a big win over an established star like Edge and have him do it cheaply so it doesn't downgrade Edge. I thought this show was another solid one with not alot of holes. Though we come to see when the shows are written out fully how bad my Cena raps are.

Austin got nailed with a Hard Belly to Belly Suplex followed up by a Spear and Jackhammer allowing Goldberg to get the Non-Title victory over the World Heavyweight Champion "Stone Cold" Steve Austin! The rest of Evolution came down to the ring..Orton, Batista, Flair, HHH and shook hands with Goldberg and Shamrock. Then all the men raised their arms in victory over the fallen Stone Cold...6-1...Real Fair there! (72%)

RAW Rating: 75%

I thought that this show was another pretty solid one with a good main event showing the full Evolution coming to fruitition but it does end quickly and does not stick around. Hurricane falling to Orton was meant to push Orton's Hardcore Title reign but it didn't really work. Booker going one on one with HHH was meant to give him some rub but that didn't work either. The only match that truely pushed anyone on the show was Christian beating Jericho clean and legit.

Angle retains the Championship but Brock when he recovers may kill Kurt Angle! (82%)

Smackdown Rating: 76%

This show begins to setup Judgement Day which includes some major blow off matches. Edge and Hardy, Benoit/Rhyno and Cena as well as Lesnar and Angle.

I feel that the Cruiserweight Division quietly carries Smackdown in this diary. They always throw down great matches and consistently. Continuing the big feud between Team Angle and Los Guerreros as well though. There is an ill-fated angle/stable coming up soon though that is probably my biggest mistake ever.

This was the beginning of the interpromotional Heats where each show got four matches and the best four matches would give that show the advantage. It helped me determine on things such as signings and roster bringups as to where people would go. It was a thing to help me more than anything.

This show was significant because it was the one night Tournament to crown a new Intercontinental Champion. Hurricane winning this was a way to push him to the moon in one night and make him an Intercontinental Champion and a threat. A real one. Goldberg vs Steiner...don't ask me cause I don't know why I booked that match.

This is also the beginning of the never-ending Steve Corino/Test Feud which ran like 4-5 months. Insanely long feud. Also when it was announced that Austin/HHH would be a Barbed Wire match. I Lost a bunch of sponsors cause I went through with the match.

The NEW Ministry Has Come..And..Now EVERYONE SHALL SUFFER ITS REIGN!!! Then the music kicked in and everyone left slowly from the ring as the crowd cheered and boo'ed (76%)

Smackdown Rating: 78%

This is where the New Ministry debuted and it died soon after this because I Fired Taker for being a prick and putting down anyone I put against him. From there it disbanded thereby being the worst angle I ever booked. Edge and Hardy though continue to push their feud toward it's climax and at the same time. The Three Way Dance TLC Match at Judgement Day is being setup when Head Cheese vs Los Guerreros vs Team Angle for the WWE Tag Team Championships happens.

RAW wins the Heat Interpromotional Battle this week RAW (72%) Smackdown (71%)

This show kicked off the Shark Boy/Jay Lethal era at least I thought it would be in the WWE. I really wanted to push both to World Title Level and neither at this time or at the time the game ended last time were even close. Sharky had been Multi-Time Hardcore Champion and Jay Lethal was out for a year with a knee injury from Christian. Orton continues his Hardcore Title Reign as well in this show but by now he's beginning to suffer the effects of being Champ for almost 5 weeks.

After that we'll handle the rest of our business later. We all need to be on the same page heading into Judgement Day so everyone make sure you don't f*ck it up tonight!

Then all the men except for HHH and Flair leave the room and Flair asks HHH something.

Flair: You think your actully gonna be able to take Austin on Sunday man. Barbed Wire Matches are known to end careers and while I know your a Career killer. Austin has always had your number man..WOO!

HHH: I will handle him on Sunday and get back my belt. I have to..It's everything to me!

The segment ends cutting to the ring for the first match to start (82%)

After the match Booker hit his Scissors Kick on both Christian and Jericho..Who will be the WWE Intercontinental Champion after Sunday though! (83%)

Backstage as Austin is yelling and screaming searching for HHH. Evolution attacks Austin in force.

He chased her up the ramp and backstage. Corino stayed in the ring for the countout before going to find Stacy to get her out of harm's way! (74%)

Lance Storm defeats Bubba Ray Dudley because of the Brass Knucks that were apparently attached to the ringpost by ducktape but it was beneath the steel stairs. An odd spot for Knucks to be. But Storm wailed Bubba in the head knocking him silly to get the pinfall! (68%)

Another Video promo plays previewing the Barbed Wire Match between Austin and HHH for Judgement Day. It should be as JR would say a SlobberKnocker! (74%)

The Rock beats Rob Van Dam in a Table Match! Rock ended up avoiding the contact on a Five Star Frog Splash and stood RVD up hitting a HUGE Rock Bottom on him. Then Rock setup a table that had been put in the ring. He then picked RVD up standing him onto the table. Then ANOTHER DRIVING ROCK BOTTOM Through the Table for the victory! A PPV Caliber match on RAW! What a treat and a great match! (85%)

RAW Rating: 78%

This was the RAW before Judgement Day and therefore saw the match that couldn't make it on this ppv. Rock/RVD Tables Match as the Main Event of RAW. Also with a promo from Shark Boy to show he's coming to RAW. Every match heading toward the PPV was advanced on this show and the Fatal Fourway IC Title match was the most difficult for anyone to call mostly because I like to swerve people in my bookings sometimes and four wrestlers with an equal shot to win (Christian and Jericho and Booker have held it before and Hurricane is champ) Made for an interesting match but the show highlighted the Barbed Wire World Heavyweight Title Match for Judgement Day!

This Smackdown again was building all the matches to Judgement Day because it is their last PPV Performance till July since Brand Extension PPV's began at this point. Angle and Lesnar continued to build to it's Climax. Hardy and Edge as well. The triple Threat TLC WWE Tag Title Match was poised as well as the Cruiserweight Title Match.

The Three Little Girls Promo begins as Judgement Day's intro starts. They speak about how the Judgement Day is at hand and the Grim Reaper himself will preside over the final end of this Judgement Day. Then the intro of the girls ends and "A Joint Production between RAW and Smackdown..WWE Proudly Presents..JUDGEMENT DAY" Immediately after this the camera comes onto the stage and pyro begins exploding all over the gigantic stage. Graves are all over the place on it as well as just some cool looking stuff. Then the cameras come tuning into The King and JR as they talk about the HUGE matches tonight but then tells the fans they're gonna start off with this rocketbuster!

Kane vs Goldberg

A HUGE Pyro explosion happens with all the tombstones and graveyard pieces catching fire..an awesome effect as Kane comes walking out through the curtain in front of the Judgement Day set walking down to the ring! Kane gets to the ring stepping over the top rope after pulling himself up onto the ring apron. Kane does his ringpost pyro. Then..Goldberg's music hits and the crowd explodes again though this time Goldberg gets some Heel heat. Goldberg comes out to his sparks flying from two tombstones by the entrance which is pretty awesome. He blows out the smoke doing his entrance as pyro goes off behind him. Pretty intimidating except if your someone like Kane..and gasp..Kane is who he's facing! Goldberg gets to the ring stepping inside. The bell sounds to start the match..Ding ding! Kane and Goldberg walk about the ring and then lockup fiercely. Neither man gains an advantage. It looks like they're gonna go back in for a lockup again but Goldberg hits a big knee to the gut of Kane bending him over. Then a club to the back by Goldberg as well. Kane ends up fighting back from this getting to his feet. Goldberg whips him to the ropes but Kane ducks a clothesline from Goldberg coming back with a flying clothesline off the opposite ropes on Goldberg! Kane picks Goldberg up and slams him back down hard. Kane then goes to the ropes. He bounces off them coming back at Goldberg with a big elbow drop but Goldberg misses and Kane hits nothing but canvas. Goldberg is up and he looks poised for the Spear! He runs at Kane..Kane Accepts The Spear into a Spinebuster!! Kane covers Goldberg..1...2...kicSuckt! Goldberg does his head shake thing as if to shake off the impact. Kane whips Goldberg to the ropes going for a Tilt a Whirl slam but Goldberg lands on his feet. He kicks Kane in the gut and goes for the Jackhammer! But Kane reaches underneath his body with his hand and grabs Goldberg by the throat! CHOKESLAM BY KANE! Kane covers Goldberg..1....2....3! Kane wins the first match of the night at Judgement Day! Kane celebrates in the ring. Then does his ringpost pyro again. As he turns back around..SPEAR BY GOLDBERG! Goldberg then snarls and leaves the ring to his own entrance. Having lost not leaving a good taste in Goldberg's mouth!

OH..it's time to rock and roll! As Trish's music hits she comes out from behind the stage to a large pop from the crowd which cheers loudly for her! She takes her hat off raising her fist in the air. Black sparkle confetti pyro blasts up from the tombstones as she does it! She comes down to the ring walking up the ringsteps and into the ring! Then once she's in the ring. Jazz's music hits and she walks out onto the ramp with the WWE Women's Championship around her waist. She points both her hands in a gun motion at Trish and fires off those imaginary shots..wow they hurt. She then walks down to the ring climbing up onto the apron and getting into the ring. The bell sounds as Trish immediately runs at Jazz for a clothesline but Jazz ducks under the attempt. Jazz begins hitting fists to Trish's face. Trish fights back with those dangerous forearms she delivers. Trish backs Jazz into the ropes and whips her across the ring. Trish goes for a chick kick but it's an awkward one which Jazz catches the foot. Trish tries to counter with an enziguri but Jazz ducks under that as well and when Trish hits the mat. Jazz grabs the second foot. She then pulls Trish to her so she sinches her arms around her waist. Trish locks her legs behind Jazz as Jazz lifts her up..Reverse Powerbomb!

She jumps up bouncing off the top rope..Jazz THROWS Trish across the ring instead of going with her on the Stratusfaction. Jazz then drops a knee in Trish's Back. Then after this singes in the STF! Trish is screaming in pain and the working over of Trish's back in this match. Trish can't make it to the ropes and taps out!! Trish is down on the mat as Jazz is announced the winner. Nick Patrick hands the Women's Championship to Jazz but Jazz isn't finished with Trish! Jazz lifts Trish up into that Chicken Wing into Faceplant (Bitch Slam) and Trish might have a broken nose after that! (God forbid) Jazz leaves the ring as the Pay Per View breaks away to promote Fanatic.

Dudley Boys vs Un-Americans

(World Tag Team Championship Match)

First Lance Storm's entrance hits as Storm and Regal come out onto the set and walk down to the ring amongst the tombstones. Already engraved newly onto two tombstones are Goldberg and Trish Stratus. Really cool effect there as well! The Un-Americans get to the ring and Lance Storm grabs a microphone from a tech at ringside.

Storm: If I can have everyone's attention for a moment. (Boos) Thank you, Tonight officially the Un-Americans are Dead!

The crowd cheers loudly as Storm says this but Storm reassures them

Storm: But don't worry. William Regal and I are not breaking up. We are not Un-Americans any longer. We are..The DIFFERENCE MAKERS!

Right after Storm says that the Dudley's fireworks behind with pyro hitting a couple tombstones with them catching fire in a cool intro. The Dudleys then come out with Bubba wearing one Title around his neck. D-Von wearing the other around his waist as they both come out onto the set pumped up. The Dudleys then run down the aisle sliding under the bottom rope. Storm and Regal bail out of the ring. Eventully Storm and Regal come back onto the apron as Bubba starts the match. Regal gets into the ring to start for his team. Regal locks up with Bubba. Bubba takes control with a headlock. Regal winds up pushing Bubba off to the ropes and Bubba comes back at him knocking Regal down with a shoulder block.

Los Guerreros vs Demonic Duo vs Team Angle

(WWE Tag Team Championship, TLC Match)

The new evil entrance music for Al Snow and Steve Blackman hits..sounding like a cross between both of their old entrances and a bit of a darker tune to them. They come walking to the ring as Both WWE Tag Team Titles hang high above the ring now with Tables, Ladders and Chairs surrounding the ringside area and a set of Two Tables a Ladder and a Chair in the ring. Once they get to the ring "Medal" hits all over the arena as Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas come sauntering out into the aisle walking between the graveyards down to the ring.

Triple H vs "Stone Cold" Steve Austin

(World Heavyweight Championship, Barbed Wire Match)

(RAW Main Event)

The ringside area had to be cleaned up significantly after the last match. Crews spent about five minutes doing it. In this time there was a video segment of the History past and recent history of Austin and HHH. Once the Low Rider had been moved as well as all the Tables, Ladders and Chairs though a few still good items were pushed under the ring. Barbed Wire was then wrapped around the ring ropes so that they could bounce off the ropes but it would hurt..alot. As well as Barbed Wire around the ringposts. ITS TIME TO PLAY THE GAME..MUAHAHAHA! Triple H's strobes and his entrance hits. Very eerie looking overlooking the Graveyard. A Graveyard cam is watching Triple H come out onto the set. He then walks down to the ring with nobody by his side. He walks down to the ring with a purpose. He can't do his water spit with this match. He'd cut himself. So Triple H carefully walks up the ringsteps inching along the apron and climbing into the ring. He winds up knicking his leg as he gets in but ignores it. Triple H then taunts the crowd once in the Barbed Wire ring! Then..THE GLASS SHATTERS! Stone Cold's Music by Disturbed blasts all over the ring as he comes down to the ring holding the World Heavyweight Championship in hand. He stalks to the ring and rolls under the bottom rope. The barbed wire snagging his vest and Austin has to pull himself out of it.

He can't do his four corners taunt either cause of the Barbed Wire. So both men stare holes through each other in the ring. The bell rings starting the match as Earl Hebner hands the belt out of the ring by tossing it over the top rope. Both men lock up and try to power each other back into a barbed wire corner! They after a moment break it. Austin gets kicked in the gut by Triple H when he comes back in for a lock up. Triple H then whips Austin to the ropes..AW MAN!..Austin groans as he comes off the ropes his back cut. Triple H carries Austin into a spinebuster off of the ropes slamming Austin down hard! Triple H then backs up a bit from Austin hitting a knee drop to Austin's head. Triple H gets on top of Austin beginning to pound down on his head. Austin throws HHH off him getting to his feet. Austin clotheslines HHH back down as HHH runs at him. Austin picks HHH up and..oh no Austin throws HHH over the top rope but HHH grabs the top rope as he goes over...Gashes in the hands there! Austin slides under the bottom rope barely avoiding being cut. Austin picks HHH up whipping him HARD into the steel ring steps! Austin picks HHH up into a body slam position. Austin then drops HHH down on the barricade chest first. Austin then..AW MAN HE THREW HHH UP INTO THE RING ROPES!

HHH holds his back in pain. Cut open again on his back. Austin grabs HHH again whipping him into the Barbed Wire Ropes..Reversal! In goes Austin!!! Austin goes down in pain as he's cut open on his back now! Triple H goes reaching under the ring apron pulling a Steel Chair out from the last match. He waits for Austin to get up and CRACK! Chair shot hard to the head! HHH picks Austin up sliding him back into the ring without cutting him mostly so he just gets in there. HHH then pulls out a ladder sliding it into the ring. A Table sliding that into the ring. A Trash can full of lids and weapons. Also..Oh man that SledgeHammer with the Head wrapped in Barbed Wire!!! Triple H has a sadistic grin on his face as he slides under the bottom rope holding it. Austin is on his knees groggily as HHH comes at him with it but Austin hits a BIG TIME Low Blow on HHH making him drop the sledgehammer! Austin picks up a trash can lid while HHH is getting up in pain. Austin gets a big pop from the trash can lid shot he gives HHH. Austin then sets up a ladder vertically leaning against one turnbuckle. Austin then sets the table up in another corner the same way. Austin then picks up the Steel Chair that HHH slid into the ring as well bringing it down hard on the back of HHH! Austin grabs HHH picking him up beginning to drag him towards the Barbed Wire yelling at him i'm gonna grind your face into meat! HHH counters with a HUGE Back Suplex on Austin laying him and himself out! HHH is up first picking up Austin as well. He whips Austin into the Ladder face first hard! HHH follows him in with a clothesline smashing Austin hard into the ladder. Austin falls to the mat and Triple H slams the ladder down on Austin! HHH picks up the chair using it to slam down on the Ladder!!! The crowd gasps each time Triple H does it. Triple H picks Austin up from that..Facebuster! Austin staggers back towards the ropes turned away from HHH regaining his bearings. HHH picks up the SledgeHammer...NO NO...CRACK INTO AUSTIN'S RIBCAGE! Austin bends over in horrible pain screaming. He gets up and HHH CLOCKS HIM IN THE HEAD WITH IT BUSTING HIM OPEN AND KNOCKING HIM OVER THE BARBED WIRE TOP ROPE!!!!!

Austin lies on the outside of the ring completely out of it for a minute before HHH slides out of the ring getting him. HHH whips Austin at the ringpost but Austin somehow musters the strength to reverse it sending HHH INTO THE BARBED WIRE RINGPOST!!! That busts HHH Open. Both men are wearing Crimson Masks after a very short period of time. Their bodies are very obviously beaten and bloodied. Austin rolls back into the ring awaiting HHH. HHH slides back into the ring as Austin lies in wait. Austin..kick to the gut..no HHH Caught his foot! Spin around...Kick to gut by HHH!..PEDIGREE! HHH turns Austin over..1......2......3!!! ITS ALL ABOUT THE GAME! is heard as Triple H just lays there still with his arm on Austin completely out of it after such a brutal match. Not as high flying as the last match. A different type alltogether but still sick and awesome in the same respect!

Al Snow and Steve Blackman accompanied by Sean O'Haire beatdown the referees on the outside of the ring. They then steal the key for the lock on the chain while both men are down outside. They unlock the lock, pull the chains off and then run away leaving the ringside area. Kurt picks Brock up and drags him around the ring dragging his face along the mesh.

EMT's race down to the ring as Undertaker kicks Lesnar in the face. Then the NEW Ministry climbs down from the Cell and leaves the ringside area. Brock finally gets his senses about him. He climbs himself down inside of the Cell to the mat. He then..not knowing much else to do. He covers Angle..1...2....3! Academic as Kurt Angle obviously needs Medical Attention! Brock Lesnar's music hits as he's the NEW WWE Champion! For a Second Time! But is that just what Undertaker Wants!? Brock Lesnar is staring off into the Graveyard and set as Taker leaves. Taker turns around with his cloak along with the hood back on. He turns giving Lesnar an almost Devil filled look as Judgement Day rolls it's credits and goes off the Air!!!

(Winner and NEW WWE Champion: Brock Lesnar at 29:41)(WWE Championship Gained In Image)

In Retrospect this show was not as good as I personally thought it was. TLC Match was not descriptive enough and the same for the World Heavyweight Title Match. Otherwise I felt the show was solid enough but again the Ministry angle continues which is a bane upon my diary looking back.

This is the beginning of the Fully written out shows and where I began saving at. This begins to setup the Jericho/HHH confrontation I have at Bad Blood while also nicely tying up his feud with Booker T. Christian and Hurricane move their feud forward as well as Corino and Test's forever feud. Shark Boy and Lethal begin to make it onto the show and make an impact which is what I wanted out of both of them and they improved immensely with each show quite honestly.

WWE Smackdown

May 29, 2003

Flash scenes of all the Smackdown matches from Judgement Day run across the scene and finally we come in after pyro all over the stage to Tazz and Michael Cole who start the show off with their announcement of the impending Hard Brand Extension

Cole: Well Tazz. We're weeks from the Hard Brand Extension..It starts in June with the RAW Only Pay Per View Event. Badd Blood. Smackdown won't have a PPV Offering until July with Fully Loaded

Tazz: That's right Cole. Now that Smackdown will have it's own PPV's it'll show how much better than RAW it is. But with that being said Cole. We gotta wait 8 weeks before our next PPV so tonight's Smackdown and Smackdowns until then will be packed with big impacts and Title Matches!

As Tazz finishes up Brian Kendrick's music hits and he comes walking out onto the stage doing his crazy dance and intro to the ring. He comes down to the ring as the first match of the night begins.

Brian Kendrick vs Chuck Palumbo

After Kendrick is in the ring already Palumbo comes out to the FBI music in his White Tank with a unlit cigar in his mouth. He plays to the crowd as he comes down to the ring. Palumbo gets into the ring as the match starts. Palumbo dominates the early going but Kendrick hits his spinning faceplant to knee on Palumbo and is about to nail the Sliced Bread #2 before Nunzio comes running down the ramp sliding into the ring to catch Kendrick as he was coming down for the Sliced Bread onto his shoulder! He then powerslams Kendrick..INTO THE TURNBUCKLES! oh man! Nunzio just whacked Kendrick! Nunzio and Palumbo roll out of the ring leaving in a hurry while Kendrick is helped up.

Team Angle vs The MF'ers(Shannon/Scotty)

(WWE Tag Team Title Match)

This match is very solid and very well received considering it's two heel teams. Both teams come out to their respective entrances. Team Angle with the championships around their waists. The match goes on for a good seven minutes being very solid until Chavo Guerrero comes running down to the ring though not as fast as normally..must be true that Los Guerreros took the worst of that TLC Match. Charlie Haas was moving to intercept him but Eddie Guerrero runs past the Announce Position sliding into the ring behind him...HUGE HIGH ANGLE BACK SUPLEX!! The referee calls for a DQ as Eddie and Chavo work over Shelton. Then they're jumped by Team Mattitude! Chavo and Eddie end up throwing Scotty and Shannon over the top rope though! Then..The NEW Ministry's entrance hits as the Demonic Duo come running down to the ring (Snow/Blackman) with a huge battle ensuing between Los Guerreros and the Demonic Duo. Finally Al Snow hits the SnowPlow on Chavo as Blackman hits his jumpkick to the jaw on Eddie sending both men out of the ring. Smackdown goes to commercial with the Demonic Duo in the ring standing tall after that battle!

Hi Brock

In Blue lettering in the top corner of the screen pops up saying "Earlier Today" as the cameras roll on the New WWE Champion Brock Lesnar walking into the building today even though he wasn't scheduled to be on Smackdown! Then down the hall a call is made to Lesnar..."Hello Brock" in a very evil voice..the camera turns..it's the Undertaker in his cloak and hood!!! Lesnar runs at Taker only to..WHACK a double Steel Chair shot (Conchairto) as Al Snow and Sean O' Haire jumped out from behind equipment wielding Steel Chairs. Undertaker laughs as he leans down to the fallen Brock Lesnar speaking slowly

Undertaker: Don't Worry Brock....The End...is near..For You...This Title..Is just..On Loan..From the Darkside.

With that Undertaker, O'Haire and Snow walk off slowly down the hall as Smackdown comes back to live action!

Your Olympic Hero Is Ok!

A scene picks up with a live camera feed from Kurt Angle's house in Pittsburgh and Kurt seems fine as he begins to speak

Kurt: No need to fear my fans. Your Olympic Hero sustained Minor injuries due to Brock Lesnar and the Undertaker at Judgement Day. But oh I am going to return soon Brock. Taker..Oh it's True. And when I do. You both are going to bow down to the Greatest Athlete to Ever Compete in the WWE..Oh it's True..it's DAMN TRUE!

Edge vs John Cena

John Cena comes down to the ring with a microphone as his beat hits. He comes down getting in the ring telling the guy in the back to cut his beat. Then he begins to break it down for us all.

Cena: Yo yo yo listen up for a minute and get a lesson in Thuganomics 101. Yo I got stolen from at Judgement Day. I mean damn that Title I got taken from me is probably somewhere on EBAY! Rhyno took what was to be mine. Because Benoit decided to be flyin. He got Gored so hard his teeth spread apart! Though it's all good cause Benoit doesn't even know how to play Mario Kart! So feel me on this that Rhyno won't have the same luck. Because now I just don't give a...

Cena pulls the microphone away from his mouth raising it in the air as he said the F-Bomb so nobody could hear it. Then Edge's music hit

Edge came down to the ring and a good match ensued between the two over guys. Edge and Cena exchanged reversals back and forth throughout the match. Late in the match it looks like Cena is going to go for his DVD but Benoit crawls from under the ring with the ref's back turned!!! Benoit with a chair in hand..Cena is against the ropes..WHACK! Cena staggers forward as Benoit laughs at Cena dropping the chair. Cena staggers forward into an Edgeocution by Edge!! Cover..1....2....3! Edge leaves the ring after winning as Benoit had already left. This leaves John Cena in the ring after the match and his eyes look like they're on fire after getting in a way screwed out of another Title shot.

Rhyno vs Chris Benoit

(WWE American Championship Match)

Benoit & Rhyno both come out to big ovations and pops from the crowd as they come down to the ring for their entrances. This match is VERY Good and very technical. Even though the fans aren't completely into a Face vs Face contest. This one fares pretty well. Benoit looks to be setting up for the Suicide Headbutt as he makes the throat slash movement when suddenly a FAN jumps over the barricade. Security misses grabbing him and he slides into the ring clipping the referee's knee out!!!! What the hell! The Fan takes his hood and hat off hiding his face..JOHN CENA!!! Cena quickly goes over to the corner where Benoit seems to half be in shock. Benoit is perched on the top rope where Cena grabs him off it onto his shoulders..BIG DVD from Cena to Benoit! Cena picks up the referee whom had rolled out of the ring in pain and helps him back into the ring nicely..the referee didn't see Cena hit him. the referee is in the ring when Rhyno is finally up now. Cena has climbed back into the crowd and is back in disguise since Rhyno never saw any of it. Rhyno sets Benoit up..GORE GORE GORE! Rhyno then covers Benoit..1...2.....3! Rhyno retains as he's handed his title after the match and heads to the back as Smackdown takes another break since that match was at least 10 minutes long!

Billy Kidman vs Psicosis vs Jamie Noble vs Rey Mysterio

(4 Corners WWE Cruiserweight Title Match)

(Main Event)

This is a very good match but not nearly as long as it deserves since Smackdown was running a bit short on time. It only got about 9 minutes instead of about 20 like it would deserve. Kidman was acting different. Perhaps a different type of gimmick for him..probably centering around the Mattitude Version 1.0 shirt he was wearing heh but people were responding to him so who cares right? Mysterio and company as usual pull out all the stops in a tremendous match. Mysterio late in the match hits a "619" on Billy Kidman putting him down in the middle of the ring but outside the ring Noble goes beneath Mysterio's legs as he goes for the "West Coast Pop" POWERBOMB TO THE FLOOR! Psicosis then runs over baseball sliding Noble into an announce table! Psicosis then quickly picks up Kidman..Psycho Stunner!!! Cover..1..2......3!!! NEW Cruiserweight Champ!! Psicosis is handed the title and gets out of dodge so to speak as if he just Stole the Cruiserweight Championship. He holds it high at the top of the ramp but this is probably far from over!

I'm Not Leaving!

After the chaos is cleared Brock Lesnar's music hits. The WWE Champion comes out onto the stage as if a rampaging animal with the Title around his waist. He charges down to the ring..except he's walking. He rolls in and yells at a tech to hand him a chair. He gets the chair sets it up and sits in it..he has a microphone in hand.

Lesnar: Smackdown isn't going off the Air tonight till Taker comes out here like a Man and faces me!!!

As if almost on cue (heh how little the casual fan knows eh?) Undertaker's Ministry theme hits with it's new more Hardcore beat and Taker in his cloak and hood comes walking out onto the stage while the lights are down. He walks slowly to the ring but a bit faster than he used to. WWE Finally realized 5 minute entrances are bad. Taker gets to the ring bringing the lights back on as Lesnar stews in the ring. Taker comes up the stairs taking his cloak and hood off stepping into the ring. Lesnar begins beating the hell out of Undertaker! Lesnar gets Taker in the middle of the ring F5!..F5!...F5!!! Undertaker lays a moment..then he sits up like from out of the grave!!!! The crowd even though he's a heel pop like hell for this! Taker stands up and Lesnar can't believe it. Lesnar goes after Taker again but Taker stops him beating him with fists and finally..a HUGE CHOKESLAM! Lesnar gets hit to the mat hard though the crowd boos heavily for this. Lesnar's Championship comes unstrapped after that as Lesnar rolls out of the ring. Undertaker (Ala when he won the then WWF Championship so long ago) goes down to a knee picking up the belt holding it into the air as Smackdown goes off the air!

This smackdown was first of all the continuation of the Edge/Hardy feud. you thought it was over? Nope you were wrong. I tend to continue feuds for LONG Periods of time. This one worked well...Corino/Test had a far different result. Lesnar/Angle/Taker feud continued at this show though Taker would soon dissappear from the equation when he gets Fired.

WWE Sunday Night Heat

June 1, 2003

(Disclaimer: Heat is the Only Part of the Hard Brand Extension that will have the shows compete besides the Interpromotional PPV's. They will have the results in their own seperate colors and all. Enjoy!)

Chris Kanyon Defeats Eric Angle but Angle lowblows Kanyon after the match in his debut (63,47,79)

Billy Kidman defeated Jimmy Yang when he turned heel to join Matt Hardy's Mattitude Stable. Billy cheated to win the match by putting his feet on the ropes. After the match Billy was helped by Matt in beating down Jimmy! (69, 50, 88)

William Regal beats D-Von Dudley with a Brass Knuck inspired Power of the Punch when the ref isn't looking (57, 47, 68)

Ultimo Dragon defeats Rob Conway clean (69, 58, 80)

Ken Shamrock defeats Jay Lethal in a tremendous matchup for Heat by forcing Lethal to tapout to the Anklelock!!! (75, 60, 90)

Brian Kendrick defeats Shannon Moore clean but then receives a beatdown with a Kid Krusher from Kidman. Kidman and Moore beating Kendrick down after the win (72, 64, 80)

Shark Boy beats Spike Dudley clean but in not nearly as good a match as RAW had hoped it would be. (61, 55, 67)

Matt Hardy Version 1.0 beats Rikishi from interference by Billy Kidman! (Yes this is a very Mattitude oriented show this week) Kidman nails Rikishi with a chair leading into a Twist of Fate. After the match Stable Mattitude celebrates in the ring announcing the Newest Mattitude Follower being Billy Kidman!! (70, 72, 67)

HEAT Rating: 64%

TV Rating: 1.16

Attendance: 6,523

Ticket Sales: $391,380

Smackdown wins this week's Heat over RAW due to the overall poor performances in a couple matches. Jay Lethal vs Ken Shamrock match was the best of the night though which shows that there is things to be looked at for the future!

This was the first hint that Lethal would be more successful than Sharky. Lethal tore down the house with Shamrock whom is not the world's best worker but decent. Spike is a pretty solid worker and Sharky apparently had alot to be worked on in his wrestling. Also on this show we saw Kidman join Mattitude to make his stable much stronger.
