“now this is sports entertainment”

(NOTE: This is a TEW diary, which I’ve tried before in the past several times as some of you may remember. Sense it looks as though Alldawson’s WWE 2005 diary did so well, but sadly going into “hiatus” I’ve decided to go back to the night after WrestleMania 21. Some of you know that I like to keep my diaries as real as possible, so I’ll be starting off with some storylines already in progress, as well as trying to improve the WWE product.)

93.6% ( 3 minutes )

Segment 2: The Highlight Reel

The usual RAW opening plays, as the camera pans over a rumpus crowd in a packed Staples Center from Los Angeles, California. Jerry “The King” Lawler & Jim Ross recap the events that happened just twenty-four hours ago as well as announce tonight’s main event matches, first between Christian & Tyson Tomko as they take on Chris Jericho & Shelton Benjamin in tag-team action and second, Chris Benoit will take on Triple H! The camera focuses on the Highlight Reel set and Jericho, who’s already in the ring with microphone in hand. Jericho talks a little about how he should have been the one who walked away with the money and future title shot during last night’s “Money in the Bank” match, not Edge. Even though he was the first ever undisputed champion, he reminds himself that tonight isn’t about him, but the current World Heavyweight champion, BATISTA!

“Unleashed” by Saliva plays over the speakers as Batista comes walking out with a big grin on his face. Batista, who’s dressed in a nice armony suit, and title belt tossed over his shoulder enters the ring with Jericho. He picks up a mic, but takes a few moments as the crowd chants “Batista, Batista”. Jericho is more then impressed with the reaction. Batista thanks all the fans for their support, and goes on about how he wouldn’t have been able to do it without them behind him from the very beginning. He mentions that being able to headline WrestleMania is a dream come true, but his next step is to be the people’s champion, and not another wannabe.

Triple H’s music plays and the arena fills with boos as HHH walks out on the stage with “Nature Boy” Ric Flair by his side. Batista prepares himself for a fight, as he tosses his jacket off, and begins to roll up his sleeves. HHH starts off by saying that he was robbed of his title last night, and that it was a fluke that the belt is even around Batista’s waist! He says that everyone knows that the world title belongs to him, and that he made that belt what it is today with his blood, sweat, and tears he’s put into the business from day one. Batista questions why HHH doesn’t just come down and try to take the belt from him, but understands that he’s all talk.

This is fantastically written, and though I like how you're only changing what happened after 'Mania very slightly, I hope it gets more and more original, as the readers sort of already know what happens in these feuds. I hope that made sense, but I usually talk utter bollocks when attempting to analyze diaries. But I'll be reading.

WWE SmackDown! Preview

April 5th, 2005

It’s true, “The Champ Is Here”. This past Sunday at WrestleMania 21, John Cena defeated JBL to become the WWE Heavyweight champion! It was a hard fought battle, but Cena would come out on top, and this Thursday night, we’ll hear from the champion himself from the San Diego Sports Arena in San Diego, California! We’ll also hear from the WWE Tag-Team champions, after their match just 72 hours ago when Rey Mysterio beat Eddie Guerrero. The Cruiserweight championship will be on the line this week, when champion Paul London defends his title against Billy Kidman. If that’s not all, we’ll see a special bikini contest between the SmackDown! divas!

Looking good so far and I love the lay-out despite obvious similarities to that of alldawson. In fact, I plan on using a similar layout for my upcoming diary.

Anyway back on topic, RAW looked like a good and for the most part realistic show, that left me interested in the creative direction you're taking Edge and Chris Benoit. Finally, I guess I predict the outcome of the announced match for SmackDown will be either a clean London win to help his title reign or a disqualification finish with Chavo Guerrero involved somehow.

WWE In Backstage Chaos

April 5th, 2005

With the loss of Brian Gerwitz from head writer of the creative team, many reports have indicated that it was pure chaos backstage during RAW this past Monday night. The incident that escalated between Vince McMahon just hours before the show went on the air was a shock for many, but even more so when it was announced that Gerwitz was released, after his long track record with WWE, and his connection with Stephanie McMahon & Triple H. It appears that with Gerwtiz departure from the creative staff, several other writers have asked to leave. The question still remains, who’ll take over at this point?

This is very good so far, I just wish that things would be a little bit different...it seems as though I've already read almost everything here. :) Hopefully Batista beats Triple H at Backlash, which would also hopefully be in a gimmick match, so we don't have to wait all the way until Vengeance for the feud to end. :lol:

April 9th, 2005

The news broke over the weekend that Rey Mysterio had signed a new multiyear contract with World Wrestling Entertainment. When Rey first joined the WWE, many people didn’t expect get over as well as he has with management and Vince McMahon himself. Rey has proven to be a huge locker room leader over the years, as he has a lot of pull with good friend Eddie Guerrero. It’s been impressive to say the least, how well Rey has gotten over with Vince himself, and how their relationship has grown, and continues to do just that. Vince has shown much interest in giving Rey a chance in the main event scene, the question that remains is how long can Rey continue to wrestle with his current physical condition.

Paul Heyman Arrives At RAW!

April 11th, 2005

We’ve heard reports that Paul Heyman has arrived in Moline, Illinois at the site of tonight’s RAW earlier this afternoon. As people try and guess at what WWE plans to do after last week’s release of Brian Gerwitz, rumors point to a strong possibility that Heyman could be his temporary replacement. If the rumors are true, expect some major heat between Stephanie McMahon. Heyman’s last involvement with WWE ended after he was caught listening in on a creative meeting without Stephanie’s knowledge. This would force management to send Heyman home, not fairly happy. The decision would have been made by Vince McMahon, who also doesn’t have a great relationship with Heyman to say the least, but it goes to show just how desperate they need someone with creative talent.

This match got underway with an exchange of blows and technical holds between Benoit and Flair. The fans were on the side of Benoit, yet continued to be behind Flair’s trademark chants. Flair would take a cheap shot on Benoit any chance he got. HHH would enter, and go to work on Benoit, so that he could once again try and prove a point to Batista that he was the game. He’d work over the injured body of Benoit, but somehow lose control of the match. Benoit fights his way out, and goes for a sharpshooter submission. Flair and HHH both double team on Benoit.

HHH kicks Benoit in the stomach, and nails the Pedigree for the three count! Batista fights his way back, and sets Flair up again for the Batista Bomb, when the lights in the arena are cut. In total blackness, we see a flicker of flashbulbs in the crowd, and the cheers from fans. The lights are finally flipped on, and Batista is laid out in the middle of the ring busted open! HHH stands over the champs body with a big smile on his face, as he holds the belt high in the air.
