WWF 2003


Recommended Posts

A little background, this diary was written from December 2002-May 2003. It covered the WWE from January 2003 up until King of the Ring 2003(yes I know there wasn't a real King of the Ring 2003, but I did not know that at the time of writing). The first couple of months, for lack of a better term, either sucks or is very dissapointing. However this repost would be confusing without it. So let's do this thing again. I will be continueing this after KOTR 2003 because I recently found my floppy disk with the saved game on it.

Smackdown 1-2-03 :

Qualities of Mattitude

Shannon Moore is sitting in the back when Matt Hardy(Version 1.0) comes in.

Matt Hardy V1:Shannon, since I have a match with Brock Lesnar tonight, I did you a big favor. I got you a match tonight as well. It is up next.

Shannon Moore:Who is it against?

Matt Hardy V1:It is against....Chris Benoit. No need to thank me. Only do what is best for my junior M'Fer. You could catapault yourself to stardom with a victory of Benoit like I did with my two victories over the Undertaker. The first step of achieving Mattitude is a victory over an established main event star.

Shannon Moore looks a little flustered that he has to take on Chris Benoit on such short notice.


Notes:Matt Hardy Version 1.0 lost overness from this segment.

Shannon Moore vs Chris Benoit

Highlights:Benoit attacked Moore at the bell. Benoit with a release German Suplex and then he slapped on the Crossface. Shannon Moore taps and Benoit wins less than a minute in. * 1/2

59(56, 77)

A surprise video

We here fans chanting "Rocky" in the background. Then we here "The Rock Says" and The Rock giving Rock Bottoms and People's Elbows to various opponents.

Voiceover:Finally The Rock returns to Smackdown. Next week on UPN.


Its True, Its damn True

Kurt Angle is backstage sitting in a chair. the WWE World Title belt is laying on his lap.

Angle:Last week was a night of great sucess. Why. Because of the formation of Team Angle. They showed that little Canadian punk Chris Benoit what being a true hero is all about. And at the Rumble, Crippler, I will make you tap. Oh its true, its damn true. I will never lose this title. I will hold it to I retire. As for Brock Lesnar, YOU WILL NEVER GET A TITLE SHOT. Even if you do, I will make you tap. Oh its true, its damn true.


Rikishi vs Bull Buchanan

Highlights:Long story short. Buchanan attacks at the bell. Rikishi comes back, Bull attacks some more. Bull misses a flying legdrop. Rikishi hits a superkick for the pin. Rikishi dances. End of match. *


Non-Title Match:Kaientai 2003 vs Los Guerreros

Highlights:Kaientai 2003 are Funaki and Tajiri. The Guereros had control for most of the match. Funaki was put in the Lasso from El Passo from Eddie, and Tajiri misted Eddie. Eddy tags to Chavo and Funaki rolls him up for a surprise pin. Kaientai 2003 have upset Los Guerreros. Too bad it was a non-title match.


Guerreros are PISSED

Eddie is shouting something in spanish.

Chavo:We got screwed. I know. CALM DOWN EDDIE.

Eddie:Those two will not get away with this. We will put up the titles next week to prove that their victory was a fluke. We will kick their asses.

Los Guerreros will face Kaientai 2003 next week. This time the tag team titles will be on the line.


Team Angle vs Billy Kidman and Edge

Notes:Shelton got speared but Charlie Haas hit Edge with a chair causing the DQ. After the match Team Angle hit the superkick/german suplex combo to both men.



Matt Hardy is standing in the back.

Hardy:Well Shannon Moore failed to defeat Chris Benoit. He is still an M'fer in training. I will not fail at my task to defeat Brock Lesnar. I will prevail. My Mattributes will prevail over that gorilla Brock Lesnar. Justice will be served, V1 style.


Brock is WALKING

The title says it all. The main event is next.


Todays Mattfacts:

V1 is better than F-5.

The Rock is not the People's Champion, Matt is.

Brock Lesnar vs Matt Hardy Version 1

Notes:Brock tossed Matt around like a rag doll for the portion of the match. Paul Heyman made his way out and razzed Brock. This threw Brock off of his game long enough for Matt Hardy to throw powder in the eyes of Brock. Matt Hardy rolls up Brock pulling the tights. Matt Hardy scored the win. He is the second person ever to beat Brock. Brock pulls Heyman into the ring and The Big Show enters the ring. The Big Show attacks Brock, laying him out with a Choke Slam. These two have some unfinished business. Big Show just saved his agent from getting an F-5 ** 1/2

71(82, 73)

69(63, 75)

Brock is not a happy man

Brock Lesnar:Last Thursday I had a match with Matt Hardy, and Paul Heyman decides to come out and distract me, causing me to lose the match. I was going to attack Paul Heyman but the one thing that stopped me was that seven foot waste of air, The Big Show. We have crossed paths before, Show, but this time it is personal. You denied a chance to get revenge and now you will pay. I don't care if I have to run through your fat ass to get to Heyman and Kurt Angle. You will be destroyed if you stand in my way.

Rhyno:I know what you are doing, Bischoff. Sucking up to me, so you can sign me to your brand. Well I may or may not sign. I want to hear what both sides have to offer and I will make my choice in due time. I will make what is best for ME and not for any brand.

Guest It's 999

Matches aren't nearly detailed enough, and the promos ain't much better. Also, when somebody speaks, your laying it out like this:

Nowinski:I'm more clever than you.

When it should be:

Nowinski: I'm more clever than you.

]Kane RIP(1997-2003)

Kane is backstage. He is wearing a t-shirt and blue jeans with his mask.

Kane: Last week Kevin Nash said something that got to me. He more or less said that I can't do well in being something I am not. and what has Kane done for me. A one day reign as WWE World Champion, a few tag team reigns, and some controversy that Triple H stirred up that I am not even getting into. So Kane is no more. I will do something that Kevin Nash did, be myself. I will win the Royal Rumble and then capture the World Title at Wrestlemania. I will destroy Kevin Nash however in the process to prove that I am the best big man in this sport today.

Glen "Kane" Jacobs takes off his mask and throws it into a garbage can. We fade out.

Usual contract signing fare. Steiner signs and then HHH signs. Then HHH decks Steiner with a cheapshot and overturns the table on him. HHH now goes underneath the contract signing table to reveal a sledgehammer. HHH hits two shots to the chest and a shot to the head. Steiner is spitting up blood.

Kurt Angle enters the office of Stephanie McMahon.

Kurt:What do you want Stephanie? I am a busy man.

Stephanie: Well the doctors have cleared you to wrestle so how about a little tuneup for the match at the Rumble. Non-Title you vs Edge.

Kurt: This is bullshit. BULLSHIT. How dare you treat an Olympic Gold Medalist like this? I thought better of you Steph.

Kurt walks out of the GM's office sulking. What a main event for tonight and a stipulation for the WWE World Title Match at the Rumble.


Tough Love...Mattitude style

Shannon Moore is in the rockeroom when Matt Hardy hits him from behind with a chair. Hardy slaps him a couple of times and rubs his face into the floor.

Hardy: You screwed up again. You will not achieve Full Mattitude if you keep doing this. You were to beat the Rock last week and you failed. You have nothing but a failure. You are a disgrace to the cause of Mattitude. So tonight I shall set an example for you. So I am going to win the Cruiserweight title tonight from Billy Kidman and you better be taking notes.

I look at this Pay Per View and I regret not writing the Rumble out. In 2004, I will indeed write up the rumble and I hope it won't suck. Anyway only the final four was written out. This Pay Per View will indeed look rather weak when compared to other Pay Per Views that will happen later. Anyway let's not dwell on this right now. Let's get on with the show.

WWE Royal Rumble 2003

We see both sets of commentators at their tables. Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler will commentate for Raw Matches and Michael Cole and Tazz for Smackdown. A coin toss will be held for each commentary team and then a commentator from each team will commentate the Rumble Match.

We go first to Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler.

Ross: What a night for tonight at the Rumble. Lets kick things off with a bang. A triple Threat match for the WWE Woman’s Title will be the first match of 6 tonight at the Royal Rumble.

Lawler: Puppies!!!

Ross: Lets get down to the ring for the first match. This should be a slobberknocker.

WWE Woman’s Title Triple Threat Match:

Molly vs. Victoria© vs. Trish Stratus

Both Molly and Trish went after the champion at the bell. Victoria dumped Trish to the outside and Molly nearly won the title in the first minute with a cradle. Trish reentered the ring and dropkicked both women but only got a two count on Molly. Trish hit a high kick on Molly but walks into a clothesline from Victoria. Victoria hits a vertical suplex to Trish but gets a two count after Molly breaks it up. Molly hits a power bomb to Victoria and the Twin City Twister but Trish breaks up the pin this time. Trish bulldogs Molly and hits Victoria with a frankensteiner. Trish fails to win the title however on a pin attempt on each woman. Trish focuses on Molly with chops and kicks. Trish hits a bulldog to Molly but Victoria knocks Trish out of the ring. Victoria then hit the Widow’s peak for the pin on Molly. ** ¾

Winner:Victoria(via the Widow’s Peak on Molly)

73(80, 60)

Notes:The WWE Woman's Title has gained in image.

Victoria celebrates her win. We go to the Smackdown Announce team for the next match.

Michael Cole: Welcome to the first Smackdown match of the Rumble. I am Michael Cole and this is my partner Tazz.

Tazz: Let me tell you something Cole, this match will be highflying and death defying. A ladder match between the two top highflying teams on Smackdown, Los Guerreros and Kaientai 2003. Should be a classic.

WWE Tag Team Title Ladder Match:

Kaientai 2003 vs. Los Guerreros

We pan to the belts hanging above the ring and the Guerreros jump Kaientai as they enter the ring. Funaki gets a vicious DDT on the floor by Chavo. Eddie beats on Tajiri and slams him headfirst onto one of the ladders stationed at ringside. Chavo and Eddie double-team Tajiri some and a ladder is slid in the ring. Chavo holds Tajiri but Tajiri ducks the shot and Eddie hits Chavo. Tajiri with some buzzsaw like kicks and he sets up the ladder in the corner. Tajiri sets up the ladder in the corner.

What a match! The crowd gives both teams a standing ovation and boy do they deserve it. Lets go over to the Raw team.

Jim Ross: All right King; coming up next, Booker T and Goldust defend the World Tag Team Titles against Lance Storm and William Regal. Regal and Storm could finally upset the champions to win the gold.

Notes: The World Tag Team Titles have gained in image.

We go to the ring where there is a table set up in the ring.

“I’m back” plays and out comes Eric Bischoff with a contract. It is time to see which side Rhyno chooses, Raw or Smackdown. Bischoff sits on a chair at the table. There are three chairs.

“All grown up” plays and out comes Stephanie McMahon. Stephanie has a contract for Rhyno to sign as well. Which side will he choose, we will find out in a few minutes.

“Man Beast” plays and out comes Rhyno. Rhyno stalks to the ring and he enters the ring. Bischoff gets up to shake the hand of Rhyno but Rhyno blows him off. Stephanie laughs at Bischoff and Bischoff just gives her an angry glare. Bischoff has a microphone.

Bischoff: Mr. Rhyno, sir, how are you? Hope you are fine. You ARE the top free agent in the company and Raw would be to your benefit. Look at this contract and see for yourself.

Rhyno takes a look at the contract and reads it. Rhyno looks satisfied about something.

Bischoff: I see you are pleased. So just sign your name, here.

Stephanie: Hold on, Bischoff. Rhyno hasn’t seen the Smackdown contract yet.

Bischoff: Rhyno, a word of advice. Don’t sign with Smackdown or you might be her coffee boy within two weeks. You did see what happened to poor Chris Jericho last year, I assume.

Stephanie shoots Bischoff an angry glare but quickly regains her composure..

Stephanie: Just read the contract, Rhyno and I am sure Smackdown will be your new home.

Rhyno reads through the contract. He looks pleased at this one as well. Rhyno lays both contracts side by side and appears to be considering. RHYNO SIGNS THE SMACKDOWN ONE. Stephanie looks pleased and Bischoff looks pissed.

Bischoff: You pulled one over on me, Steph, but I will get back at you. Some way, somehow you little conniving bitch.

Bischoff leaves the ring and Stephanie gets up to shake the hand of Rhyno. She does and we see turns around, Rhyno slides the table out of the way and he is poised. RHYNO GORES STEPHANIE AS SHE TURNS AROUND. Stephanie falls to the mat and the crowd reaction for Rhyno is rather mixed. Rhyno leaves. Rhyno has signed with Smackdown and gored the boss. Not a good start but Rhyno is tough enough to make it on his own.


Tazz: I can’t believe what we just saw, Cole. Rhyno Gored our boss, Stephanie McMahon. He is on her bad list right out to start with.

Cole: Rhyno however is a great addition to the Smackdown roster and I know I am looking forward to calling his matches.

Tazz: What a match we have next, Cole! It will be an I-Quit Match between Chris Benoit and Kurt Angle. Who is the better submission wrestler? We will find out tonight, Cole.

Bischoff makes a ruling on the Wrestlemania contendership

Four of the top superstars on Raw go after a shot at the Gold. Chris Jericho gets into the match by virtue of being the last Raw Superstar in the Rumble last night. Three qualifying matches will take place. Tonight:Batista will face RVD for a chance in the match. The other two qualification matches will be Glen Jacobs vs Kevin Nash and Booker T vs Goldust.

Battle of the Titans

Brock Lesnar comes out to the ring to some cheers. He will face the WWE World Champion at Wrestlemania whether it be Kurt Angle or the Rock.

Brock: At the Rumble I conquered and won. I will take back what is mine, the WWE World Title and....

Out comes Rhyno. What the hell is this? Rhyno enters the ring and Brock and Rhyno stare each other down.

Rhyno: BROCK!!! You won the rumble for one reason and one reason only. I WASN'T IN IT. I would be the number one contender if I had been in there. You wouldn't even be in the WWE if I hadn't got injured. I can do the same stuff you can do but do it ten times better. You are a cheap Rhyno imitation Brock. I want you to HAND ME OVER the Wrestlemania title shot and about 95 % of your paycheck for the rest of your career because YOU OWE ME. Without Rhyno there will be no Brock Lesnar and that is a motherf****** fact.

Brock: First of all who in the hell do you think you are to demand anything. Sure you were the last ECW champion and you were on the verge of superstardom but you got injured and have to start from square one. I earned this title shot and you are getting it OVER MY DEAD BODY.

Rhyno: That can be arranged, bitch.

Rhyno goes for the Gore but Brock side steps it. Brock clotheslines Rhyno and is punching away at him but Rhyno gets up and absorbs it. Rhyno now clotheslines Brock and does the same. Brock pops up and a bunch of referees and sercurity come out. They seperate the two and out comes Stephanie McMahon.

Stephanie: Since you two are so eager to fight each other you can do it at No Way Out. The Wrestlemania Title shot will be on the line at that event. You are not to touch each other or the match is off. However Brock, if you touch Rhyno you forfeit the Wrestlemania title shot to Rhyno. Rhyno if you touch Brock first, you are stripped of your chance for the Wrestlemania title shot.

Another great match signed for No way Out.


Notes: Brock Lesnar lost overness from this segment. Rhyno lost overness from this segment.

77(78, 76)

Kurt Angle talks about the Rock.

Kurt Angle has the WWE World Title belt over his shoulder.

Kurt: It is funny that even after sucessfully defending the title last Sunday, people give me no respect. You people should really show some respect to your Olympic hero I beat Chris Benoit to prove who the top submission wrestler is and now at No Way Out I have to defend against the Rock. I will go one on one with the Great One and come out on top like I should. Two years ago at No Way Out 2001 I was heading into Wrestlemania but the Rock cheated me out of the gold. I will right the wrong of that night, at No Way out by making the Rock tap. Its true, its damn true.


WWE Tag Team Titles: Billy Kidman and Edge vs Los Guerreros©

Highlights: Great match here all the way. Not Rumble 2003 ladder match qualities but few could be. Edge speared Chavo but neither was the legal man. Eddie popped Kidman with a tag title belt to score the pin. Afterwards Team Angle came in and layed out all four men. Next week on Smackdown will be Los Guerreros vs Team Angle. ***

Winners: Los Guerreros(via Belt shot to Kidman)

79(77, 81)

Albert vs Chris Benoit in the first round match for the WWE Interconinental Title Tournament
