Michael's story

I just can't believe what's happening to me, it's like a dream come true, my life is now made, all what I've lived for is happening to me right in front of my very eyes, it's just great, amazing, a once in a lifetime. So it's the 12th of June, and my friend Andy comes up to me and says "Michael, did you know the WWE are looking for a new creative writer for their booking team? Gerwitz got the sack because of creative differences, and they need a new young guy” I had no idea, so as you could tell I nearly pissed my pants in the middle of the room at the thought of actually being on the creative booking team, but I had to take a step back. Sure I was good at writing, but in the split second I had just nearly pissed my pants because I was on the booking team, what the hell was that about, he just told me about it, not told me I had the job, and what are the chances I'd get the job, slim to none, right?

My friends had always told me that I was a great writer, and that seeing that I loved wrestling so much, why didn't I want to give it a shot at being a writer for the WWE, but I never really took much notice, that was just a dream of mine, nothing that would actually happen in reality. I had done some written a few plays for Broadway, in which they had told me were great, just not stage material, so I thought that seeing as the WWE is the biggest stage of all, I had no fucking chance.

So seeing as there was a vacancy, I applied for the position, in which they asked me for a CV, and I included the copies of paper from the Broadway management in which they had said my plays were great, just to try and influence my vote a little, I also included the play that they said it about. Hey it’s always worth a shot at including the play, if they don't want me on the team they might publish my play....... or not. 3 days later I got a piece of paper saying "Meeting at the WWE house show in New Jersey on the 18th, 15:30pm, VINCES OFFICE". I stood there in silence for about 10 minutes, just thinking of the thought of actually meeting Vince McMahon, I can't believe it, why would he want me, I'm just an ordinary shmoe, from Manhattan NY, I just couldn't get my head around it.

The Interview with Vince went great, actually it didn't go great, it went fantastic, because he said that out of all the applicants, I showed a great mind for the wrestling business, and showed I had done my homework. Well, I didn't need to do my homework, I had been watching the WWE since the age of about 3, I knew everything there was to know, I was the ultimate WWE boffin.

19th of June 2004, and Vince rings my house, it had only been 1 day since the interview, I was doomed, he had thought about it too much and realised that I was just that average guy who had got the job. Hang on, what just happened there, I got the job, I got the job, holy shit I got the job, I stayed calm until Vince hung up, and as soon as Vince put that phone down, BOOM, time froze for 3 seconds, and I exploded into a hissy fit of laughter, and about 20 other emotions that I just can't explain. I start on the 1st of July, and that means it will be the first Smackdown after the Great American Bash, which is a bummer, but I can't wait, excitement has taken over. I've got so many ideas for my new job, this is defiantly going to be one of the best times of my life.

Vince had invited me to the Raw and Smackdowns before the Great American Bash to see how everything works, to meet all the guys backstage, pick up some ideas, and just to generally get into the swing of things before I actually have to sit down and write for a wrestling show. Both shows were great to watch and see what was happening around the place, but I seemed to be edging a little more towards one show, and that was Raw. I had always liked Raw as the better show throughout 2004, but being backstage, there attitude was just much better than Smackdowns, and they seemed more lively, as it was going out live. The Smackdown guys were just mostly laid back, and seemed a bit off, but after speaking to Paul Heyman, he informed me it was because of the lack of star power on the show, and the injuries and loses that were bugging it up. This got me thinking towards my first Idea, which I decided I would pitch to Vince in the future.

June 27th 2004

So it was here, "The Great American Bash". The matches were set, and everything was looking good, I just couldn't wait to see the action.

The Great American Bash

Results

Kenzo Suzuki def. Rico

Suzuki was dominant throughout the match, with Rico only getting a little of the offence onto the big man. Suzuki dominates throughout and wins with the Hagakura. After the match Rico was DDT'ed and tossed over the top rope to add insult to injury.

Rey Mysterio Jr def. Chavo Guerrero Jr, to retain his WWE Cruiserweight Title

These two always put on top notch matches, and nothing was different here tonight, as they went at it and pulled out all the stops in this all action high flying match. Chavo without his dad Chavo Classic was looking out of place for the most of the match, as he wasn't able to easily cheat to win. Chavo soon found his stride, but when he looked to have had the match won, Rey countered a suplex into a small package and won the match up, to the dismay of Chavo. Both men had a good stare down before Chavo pointed to Ray and gave him the "cutthroat" action before leaving for the back and leaving Rey to celebrate.

The Undertaker and The Dudleyz wrestled to a no contest

All 3 men were going at it for the most of the match, with The Dudleyz seeming the stronger, due to the man advantage, but they couldn't keep the Taker down. Heyman soon realised this, and told all 3 to stop fighting, clapping to the Undertaker as if he had passed his challenge, which was to not lose to the Dudleyz it seemed. He then signalled to the Taker to go and get Paul Bearer out of the locked coffin, but when he got to the coffin, Undertaker showed he true colors. As Bearer stood up out of the coffin, Taker nailed Bearer with a right hand, threw him back in and ordered the cement to fill it up, which happened and Bearer was trapped inside, signalling the end of Bearer, and a new beginning for Taker with Heyman.

John Cena def. Booker T, RVD, and Rene Dupree, to retain his WWE U.S Title

With the match now an elimination match up, it seemed everything was set to be against the US Champion Cena, but he came out of the match with the title still around his waist. The first to go was Dupree after a Cena FU sent him packing to the back. The next to go was RVD as Booker T nailed his former friend with a chair to the head, and rolling him back into the ring to get the 3. Cena and Booker went at it like to hungry animals, but it was Booker T's lapse in concentration, which lost him the match. As Booker T had hit Cena with a Book End, he celebrated on the top rope, giving Cena valuable time to recover. Booker hooked up Cena and signalled for a DDT, but as he was about to deliver the impact move, he saw his hand giving the "5 times" signal. After shoving Cena to the floor, and showing people that he could break dance, he again hooked up Cena for the DDT, but it was reversed into and FU, which finished off Booker, and kept the gold around Cena's waist.

Eddie Guerrero def. John "Bradshaw" Layfield, to retain the WWE Championship

This Texas Bull Rope match sure was brutal, but Layfield was denied for a 2nd PPV in a row of the WWE Championship. Unlike in the last match though, Eddie wasn't busted open, it was only Layfield who tasted his own blood, and it weakened him to the point where he could hardly walk. Layfield sucked it up for a 2 minute spell, but he couldn't put Eddie down for the 3, and he had used all his reserves up. Layfield collapsed in a pool of his own blood, Eddie hit the frog splash and he kept his WWE Championship title.

Looks to be a good start Drezdon, and I'm looking forward to seeing how you do this.

However, how the hell do you hit a frogsplash on someone when you're attatched by a rope, i've never seen a match like this, so is the rope long enough to get to the top rope and do a frog splash?

Guest Reaperstang

I liked the GAB results. Also you could do it(frog splash) if you had the guy in the corner you climbed. Or maybe at some point the rope came undone and was used on Bradshaw.

I will be checking back.

It can be done, accually a hurt Bradshaw pulling the rope while eddie was up top and eddie landing in a frog splash would be cool. I'll keep up!

You...let...Rico...job...you...bastard....

The Great American Bash results are probably the ones that will be in the real event (except for the Taker thing), so there's not much to say about them. This is your starting point and the important thing is where you'll take it. I'll be reading.

OOC - The Bullrope thing, I can just say that I guest that the rope would be long enough for Eddie to drag Bradshaw close enough to the top rope to hit a frog splash, because I've never seen a match like this before. The Savio vs Austin 4 corners match in 1996, I thought the rope that they were tied to looked long enough, and even though this will only be a bullrope instead of a peice of tie, I assumed it would be long enough, lets just imagine it is :P

Actually, if I remember correctly, there was supposed to be no pinfall involved. I think you were supposed to drag your opponent to all four corners of the ring and that's how you'd win. Or, that's how I remember people talking about it.

:ohwell:

Date: 30th June 2004

Place: Titan Towers

Attendees: Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Michael Mulqueen, John Laurinaitis, Paul Heyman and Bruce Pritchard (The Booking Team)

So here I am, I finally made it into the WWE headquarters, now this really is a dream come true, and I honestly cannot believe that I have made it this far, I mean from no-body to on the WWE booking team, only in the wrestling industry can that happen, lets just hope that I'm not going to end up like Gerwittz hey. So we all assembled around a long-ish table, not to long but it was far from small, and it looked as expensive as money could buy, but this was Vince McMahon damit, only the best. Vince walked into the room with a coffee in one hand, and a briefcase in the other, he took his seat in the middle of the table, and the meeting officially began

Vince: Welcome gentlemen and Stephanie, this is the first official meeting between us gathering of people, the new booking team. I've added Paul back to the team because I think we need some of his spice to liven things up a little, and more so with the Smackdown brand, and I've also bought in another guy, Mr. Mulqueen. Some people said to me that I was a little stupid bringing you in, but I need a young guy, with a wrestling view as good as yours, and a vision to take us into the future, so you could say that the future starts here for the WWE. Do you have anything to say about the matters in hand, Raw and Smackdown.........*pause of about 3 seconds, and Heyman cuts in*.

Heyman: Well, I would like to say thank you to you first of all Vince, for giving me this chance to return to the booking team, and yeah I have 2 major ideas for Smackdown. The first is Rob Van Dam. Now I'm not saying this because I like the guy, but I just feel that he deserves a chance, like the one he got when we were running the invasion angle, especially the push he got in the triple threat title match he got given against Austin and Angle at No Mercy, when In My Opinion, that was probably the best time for him to win the title, as he was major over, but hey, that's just my opinion. So an RVD push would be welcomed, obviously not straight away, as we would have to ease him back into a push for a title, and I really think it would be great. Secondly is the subject of Smackdown again, and it's time we put a solid tag team on the brand, to maybe challenge The Dudleyz, because Rico and Charlie has now been split, and I don't think Haas should be thrust straight into another tag team once more, and I think I've got just the team for you. They are Nova and Carlito Colon, the two workers you've had your eye on down at OV-WWE, and I think that's just the time to bring them into Velocity an see how they work as a team, because I think this could really work, as they could be our new high flying tag team.

*Heyman stops speaking, and there’s pause for a bit of time*

Vince: Is that all you have to say

Heyman Yes Mr. McMahon

Vince: Ok, well Michael do you have anything to say?

Mulqueen: Well I did have one little thing to say.

Vince: Well don’t hold it in like a fart in a crowded lift, lets hear it

*Vince cracks a huge smile, and everyone smiles at Vince’s fart joke*

Mulqueen: Well again it’s about Smackdown, but it’s about the lack of star power the how is lacking at the moment. Now I know that on the show there is a lot of future star potential there, but we need a quick boost of energy you could say, and someone who is willing to make future stars for the company.

*All look on nodding their heads*

Mulqueen: I can really only recommend 3 guys, and they are.

. Sting – A guy who has lost his in ring skill has decreased little over the years, but the WWE fans have never seen him in a WWE ring, and I think it could be very beneficial for the show. His skill may have gone, but his overall star quality and presence hasn’t, and it could just be the boost that Smackdown is in need of.

. Raven – Now I know that he wasn’t overly successful in his last stint in the WWE ring, but you cannot deny that he has that star power, and he’s had great success on the Indy circuit with NWA:TNA and RoH, so you can see that the potential is there. No offence, but Paul is a man that knows how to book Raven to his greatest strengths, so with him on the booking team to guide us, this could work well.

. Shawn Michaels – A move from Raw could do him very well in my opinion. He has been stuck in the shadows of Triple H and Chris Benoit, and a move from Raw, and a title push could do him great. He isn’t getting any younger, and a final move of freshness could do him great

That’s all I’ve really got to say at the moment Vince, and once again I would just like to thank you on this opportunity.

Vince: Well thank you for that Michael and Paul, I’ve listened to your ideas and taken them into consideration. Has anyone else got any new ideas apart from the ones that have already been but across………..

*silence in the room*

Pritchard: Well I would just like to say that I think we need to push Tyson Tomko away from the bodyguard image if he is to succeed on Raw, and he should be put in the role of a new Sid Viscous, a man who is powerful, fearless, and believes he can take on the World, but he has the strengths to do it.

Vince: ummmmm, it’s good, I’ll give that one a thinking about too. Well if everyone’s had they say for today, I think that we can all be excused, I’ll see you all tomorrow for the new Smackdown LIVE.

They all leave the room, and the meeting ends.

So, I was getting more an more excited by the day, but the most frustrating part was not being able to book that Raw show straight after "The Great American Bash" on the 28th of June, because just watching it I had so many ideas and thoughts about the show, I really wanted to do it. Shame I couldn't thought, but it turned out to be a great show.

WWE RAW recap

Kane def. Matt Hardy

The match wasn't really wanted by Matt, but WWE general manager Eric Bishoff forced him into the match. Matt's mind was in 5 different places during the match, and kept staring at the adoring Lita as she looked so ashamed to be there at ringside, and he looked very disappointed too. Kane totally dominated Matt throughout the proceedings, and took the win after a Chokeslam which was so devastating even the great daredevil Matt Hardy, who has taken so many bumps in his life couldn't rise out of the pinfall. After the match Kane dragged Lita up the ramp, who was looking scared and out of sorts.

Chris Jericho def. Batista

After the clothesline by Batista left Jericho being helped from the ring last week on Raw, the "King of the World" was back in the ring to settle this disagreement between the two. The match wasn't technical in the slightest, just Jericho dodging Batista's constant attacks. When Jericho got an advantage though, Randy Orton came flying down to the ring, but when he swung for Jericho with the championship belt, Jericho ducked and Orton hit Batista. Jericho removed Orton from the ring, and pinned Batista for the 123. After the match though, Orton hit Jericho with his championship belt, but as he looked to conflict more damage, Shelton Benjamin came running down the aisle for the save, showing that the feud between the two is not yet over, and Benjamin still wants that Intercontinental gold.

Trish Stratus def. Ivory

The return of Ivory, but it wasn’t much of a return for the former WWE Womens champion, as she didn’t even last 3 minutes in the ring with Trish. When Trish had tossed Ivory to the outside, she was met with a clothesline from Tyson Tomko, which left Ivory down and out. When Tomko rolled her back into the ring, Trish just had to make the cover for a quick 123.

Eugene and Chris Benoit def. Triple H and Ric Flair

In the main event of the night the crowd were treated to a great match up between 2 legends, the WWE World Champion, and Eugene. Eugene shocked the game with his constant reversals and heart to not be put down, but not even he expected what was about to happen. When Triple H and Benoit battled all the way to the backstage after an out of ring battle around the ring, it was left with Eugene to face The Nature Boy in a 1 on 1 match. Flair seemed to underestimate Eugene immensely, and when Flair spat at Eugene’s friend and manager William Regal, he was met with straight rights and lefts from an angry Eugene. Flair was then given a German Suplex and pinned for a 123, the crowd was in shock, and erupted into huge cheers. As Raw went off air, Eugene was hugging a very happy William Regal.

OOC - I'm really sorry about the lack of shows, but real life has caught up with me big time, and I havn't been able to do much lately, accept write stuff about my Drama course, and drive to various places. The show should be up by tomorrow if you were enjoying the little part of the diary that you did get. It will be a full written show, not just a page of results like you've got so far :thumbs-up:

Well I'm bringing this diary back and hopefully it'll be better than my last efforts at it being good. In the real world I've had so much on my plate since I started this that I've not had much time to even be on my PC, and I think this is the first time that I've posted on EWB in fucking ages. So sit back and enjoy the WWE 2004: Drezdon style.

(Sorry about this, it's another recap show, but that's because I've lost the show that I wrote up for Smackdown, and only have the previous results screen to go by on TEW, Heat and Velocity will always only be recapped, and not written, the first full written show you will get from me will be the next Raw, sorry about that for anybody who actually liked this first time off)

Kenzo Suzuki beat Hardcore Holly

Kenzo Suzuki carried on his undefeated run as he beat Hardcore Holly with general ease. Holly looked like he was going to outsmart the big man in the early going, but Suzuki overpowered Holly, and nailed him with the Hagakure to pick up the win.

Mordecai beat Billy Gunn

Another man on a winning run is Mordecai, but he impressed far more than Suzuki as he finished off Gunn in a mere 37 seconds, to pick up the easy victory. Gunn went for the fameasser early on in the bout, but Mordecai nailed him with a stunning clothesline, and the Sinner Shot to get the 1 2 3.

Rob Van Dam beat Doug Basham

Van Dam and Basham went at it toe to toe in a great match for the SD! fans, but it was RVD who emerged as the overall victor in the end. Bashams lack of experience in big matches led him to talk to Danny Basham after great looking reverse DDT on RVD. But he left RVD too much time to recover, and thus letting RVD score the role up for the 1 2 3.

Chavo Guerrero Jr. drew with Rey Mysterio

Chavo and Rey wrestled to a double count out, as these to men carry on their rivalry for the Cruiserweight Championship. Champ Rey went for the West-Coast Hop, but Chavo held onto little Rey, and both men ended up falling over the top rope. It was there where they wrestled around the ring and earned each other the double count out.

The Dudley Boyz beat Scotty 2 Hotty and Billy Kidman

The tag champs kept their titles with a good win over Scotty 2 Hotty and Billy Kidman. The challengers used their superior pace to keep the match alive but it was the Dudleyz power that caused them to eventually get beat, but it wasn't just that, there was a lot of cheating too. Throughout the whole match the Dudleyz were using the ropes to their advantage when in submission holds, D-Von pulled the ref out of the ring on TWO occasions, and Bubba hit Kidman with a chain, which knocked out the young gun, so it wasn't all power that got the win. The 3-D was delivered and the Dudleyz got the 3, but we could be seeing a re-match sometime in the near future.

Booker T and Rene Dupree beat Eddie Guerrero and John Cena

The Undetaker, two words that strike fear into you if you were in this Main Event. The match was in full swing, Eddie was in control of Dupree, and then JBL came running out from behind the curtain, but just as JBL was halfway down the walkway, the lights went out. When the came back on, JBL was on the floor, Undertaker was in the ring, and chaos was about to begin. The Undertaker looked as if he was about to nail Booker, but gave Booker an uppercut, and then turned to Eddie and gave him a thunderous chokeslam, then rolling him outside of the ring. By this time JBL had recovered, but looked stunned and as if he didn't know what was going on, he saw Undetaker attacking Eddie, and went after Cena. The ref who was KO'd from earlier on in the match was just getting his bearings back, and JBL nailed Cena with the clothesline from hell, and pulled Booker T on top of Cena, to give Booker the 1 2 3. Undetaker just stood over Eddie whilst JBL walked over to the scene, Taker signalled to JBL that Eddie was his target now, and that he had had his chance to get his hands on the title. JBL walked off, but it now looks as if he's set his sights on the U.S Title.

Date: Monday 5th July 2004

Place: Continental Airlines Arena backstage room

Present: Vince McMahon, Jim Ross, Michael Mulqueen, Paul Heyman, Stephanie McMahon, John Ace

Vince McMahon called in his top guys for a meeting just hours before the Raw show at the Continental Airlines Arena. They all sat round a rather small table in Vince’s huge backstage dressing room. The meeting began with Vince saying a few words.

Vince: Good Evening everybody, I’m going to cut straight to the point and say that I’ve called you guys in here to say that we need a plan for this event, because tonight there will be the World Championship feud eruption, and there will be a new challenger for Chris Benoit’s heavyweight title, but I want ideas on how to do it, and who it should be challenging. Now I’ve selected Paul, John, and Michael to put forward the first ideas, and myself, Stephanie, and Jim to put forward ideas to give with these. So first off Paul, who and how?

Paul: Well, first off I think that it should NOT be Triple H, as it would be just the wrong time to give him a re-match, and we should maybe wait until Summerslam to have him fight the World Champion. Now I think it should be one of these 3 guys

.Chris Jericho - Now Chris hasn’t had a title shot in a very long time, and I think it would be great to see him challenging for the title, and maybe even winning it at Vengeance, or a later date, as I think running a longer feud would be great for Jericho and Benoit, as their skills, and Jericho’s charisma could take it far, and lead it to be very successful.

.Shawn Michaels - Now I understand that later on we will be discussing making him a permanent part of Smackdown, but this could be a great way to get him to leave. Say we make a Shawn Michaels vs Chris Benoit at Vengeance, it’s a Raw only PPV, so there will be no Smackdown stars there, or will there be. We could have someone like Booker T come down and BHAM! takes out Michaels, Benoit retains the title, and it makes perfect sense for Michaels to move to Smackdown to get his revenge. That could also lead Michaels to a Smackdown Title match up.

.Matt Hardy – He’s not doing very much at the moment, and he could easily get the Main Event push, which will cement his high overness for a long time to come. This could be a long ticking feud, which will start tomorrow, but it won’t get Hardy his title shot, leaving him to be disappointed with this, and a botched interference at Vengance against another opponent for Benoit, could set a match for the pair at Summerslam. Another thing could be, we get them to feud big time, and someone will eliminate Matt last in a Battle Royal to be the no.1 contender of the World Heavyweight Title.

They’re my ideas at the moment, I hope you like them.

Stephanie: I don’t really agree what you say about Paul though, he’s always a great contender for the title, and he’s the no.1 Heel on Raw, so why shouldn’t he get the title shot

Vince: Now Steph, I agree with what Paul said, and it would be a little too soon to give him the title back, and Summerslam or even the Survivor Series would be a good time to have HHH facing the champion.

Steph: Well it’s just my opinion, why not have the number 1 heel face the number 1 face for the title, common sense

Paul: Because we need to make more number 1 heels, and have other people who are at the top of Raw, and challenging for the title, other than Triple H, because it’s not good for the brand to have only HHH at the top

Vince: Well it’s not necessarily that bad, but we do need to make another huge superstar, and that’s what we’re doing in the meeting. Now Michael, it’s your chance to speak

Michael: Well Vince I reckon that we should…………………………………

The meeting about the current World Title situation carried on until a conclusion, as all 3 men had pitched their ideas, and it had been honed down to what they all agreed was the best idea for everyone.

Vince: Now with that out of the way, we can quickly discuss what’s happening with Smackdown, and if we have come to a conclusion with the issue of injured stars, and not much star power. Anybody feel free to speak.

Michael: Well now that we’ve all agreed that we should take out Shawn Michaels with the storyline, that still leaves me thinking that he will be occupied with that for a couple of months, so e should sign someone on a short term basis, who will give some much needed star power to Smackdown, and help to push other stars by putting them over, much like Mick Foley done with Randy Orton. Now for me, Sting should be our no.1 focus, but hiring either Vader or Steve Austin back to the WWE could well do Smackdown a hell of good. Austin is a WWE Legend, and Vader is extremely well known to the WWE fans, as he’s had stints with us before. Any of the 3 names would be great to see on WWE Television.

Vince: Well I think Steve kind of wants to do his own thing at the moment, and Vader just doesn’t suit the bill with me, as I would love him to go with a new gimmick, but his Vader “Monster” gimmick is legendary, so there is really no way I could part him from it, as it could have such bad effects on his career, even ruining it to the point where hiring him was a huge mistake. I think we’re going to have to have a talk with Sting, and see how he feels about coming to the WWE, but that’s all I can say at the moment, we need to get the ball in his court first. Anybody have anything else to add, or have any comments to make about us going after Sting?………………

(silence)

Good, so I’ll let you go and get ready for the show, see you backstage in about 5 hours.

All 6 of then leave the room, after coming to the decision of 2 major happenings, 1 for Raw, and 1 for Smackdown. Will ******’s feud with Benoit be pulled of in the right matter? Will the fans take to it? we’ll find out tonight on Raw.

O.k, here's the deal, the diary stopped because I didn't have enough time to do it really, and to be honest most the spare time I have will be spent doing this, but that's fine as I have been inspired to give it another go. I carried on my game, so the next couple of post's will be a round up of what has happened whilst I've not been writing.

Fueds

The Undertaker vs Eddie

This is no new feud, it's been boiling over since the diary began, and now the Undertaker has exploded. He was so eager to fight Eddie, he offered him a match at RAW's Vengeance PPV, but it was turned down by Bischoff, as he didn't know what affect it would have on Raw, and having Kane in the arena couldn't be good at all. So now the Undertakers destruction has continued, he's beating opponent after opponent, even a returning Tazz, putting him into retirement permanently. Eddie isn't slacking off, costing Taker his first match since his return, only by DQ of course, as he nailed Hardcore Holly with a chair just to cost him. Eddie drilled Taker with the chair too. Taken then destroyed Eddie backstage on the next Smackdown, only for Eddie to once again come down to the ring and blast Taker with a chair after his match with Charlie Haas. Smackdown's new GM Shane McMahon has ordered these two to settle this at Summerslam.

Chris Benoit vs Matt Hardy

It was Hardy who got the nod for the job with Benoit, giving him a huge Piledriver after the final match up HHH got at Benoit. The match finished in a draw, and Hardy ran down looking like he would help Benoit, only to show his true colors. Vengeance PPV was rolling round, Benoit didn't want to give Hardy a title shot, but GM Bischoff forced him too, and it was Benoit who prevailed, but only because of a Lita interference as Hardy asked for a divorce with her. Matt demanded a rematch, but Benoit told him to earn it. There was a tag match set up "Benoit and Edge vs Hardy and Rhyno" and it was Hardy who earn his title shot, by pinning Benoit fair and square. Benoit was occupied by the Rhyno Edge fight going on outside, as he stood on the top rope, watchig instead of completing the diving headbutt on Hardy, as his friend Edge was kicked off the side off the stage. Hardy then recovered and shook the top rope, causing Benoit to fall groin first down to the ring ropes. Hardy removed him, Twist of Fate, 1.2.3. So Raw is coming up, and what's going to be said and done for Summerslam?

other minor storylines

Shawn Michaels was attacked by someone on Raw, but he didn't know who it was. He went on a huge search, and it was the attacker who revealed himself as BOOKER T. Michaels went to Smackdown to get his hand on him.

Christian and Stevie Richards have been going at it this past month, facing each other at Vengeance, with Christian coming out the victor.

Kane and The Rock.......TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS. Kane hates Rocky, Rocky hates Kane, they got put together for a tag match, and won the titles, but now neither man wants to give them up.

Chris Jericho had 1 interview, saying how easy it would be to defeat the whole of Evolution, and they didn't take too lightly to it. With Orton losing at Vengeance to Benjamin, he counts Orton as "too easy" also saying Flair is "too old", and he beat Batista after that devastating clothesline that was dealt out to him. He then defeated HHH at Vengeance, proving that it is possible to beat "all of Evolution". Orton and Flair could be coming up next.

Last Weeks Raw!

The Return of Rikishi

That's right, Rikishi came back to Raw, and he was not a happy guy. He told the World that he wasn't here to make any friends, and that his first goal was to win some Gold, and that he didn't want no more Tag Titles, he isn't a woman, and the World strap stuff is getting to complicated. That left only 1 title, The Intercontinental Championship. That turned out Edge, who had been having problems with Rhyno, but those looked to have been sorted out, and he said that he and his friend Shelton had agreed to fight, and were looking to slug it out at the next PPV, Summerslam. Rikish said that he was cool with that, and Edge was his friend too, and they should have a "friendly" match up next week on Raw, to see who would be fighting Benjamin next for his strap, whether it be at Summerslam, or at the nearest Steak house, he didn't care. That bought out Eric Bischoff, who said the winner of NEXT weeks match between Rikishi and Edge would face Shelton Benjamin for the IC Title at SUMMERSLAM.

Carlito Cool is here to stay

He came, he said he was cool, he beat the Hurricane, and is here for good. Bischoff said he needed to prove himself to be part of Raw, he beat The Hurricane with a little help from the ropes, and is now a permanent part of Raw.

Matt Hardy defeats the World Champion

After his loss at the PPV, Matt hardy was back with a Vengeance, in a match that squared up Chris Benoit and Edge against Hardy and Rhyno. Edge's mind seemed elsewhere during the match, and when his brawl with Rhyno started to go up the ramp, Rikishi burst out of the curtains to help his friend Edge. He puched Rhyno is his head a couple of times, and set up for the super kick. He looked to blast Rhyno off the side of the stage, but he hesitated for a second, and that gave Rhyno enough time to duck and Rikish nailed Edge in the face, causing him to fall off the stage onto a table down below. It looked like the most set up mistake in history, but Rikish seemed distraught with himself, and headed backstage with his head in his hands. Back in the ring Matt Hardy had just nailed the Twist of fate at almost the exact same time, and the ref put down the 123, and Hardy had defeated the champion of the World.

Raw Preview

Chris Benoit vs Christian

Christian has been given the opportunity of a lifetime, by Matt hardy of all people. Bischoff asked if he wanted a title shot for this weeks Raw, and he referred Christian for the shot, saying that he wanted to prove to Benoit in a different way that he was going to take his gold off of him. So which way will that be, find out only on Raw

Triple H and Randy Orton vs Shelton and Chris Jericho

Same match as last week, just Jericho has been drafted into the equation instead of Tajiri. Jericho was the man responsible for the loss last week, after blasting HH over the head with a chair, much like what happened to him at Vengeance, and now it looks as if they're going to go at it one more time.

Edge vs Rhyno

It was set up, it was going to be friendly, but it all seemed to change so quickly. Rikishi pulled out of his match with Edge, saying that he didn't want it to be this way, and that he would be in Edge's corner for the match, instead of in the ring with him. So now it's Edge vs Rhyno, who will be that man fighting Benjamin at Summerslam for the IC strap, and what is Rikishi up too, one minute he wants gold, now he doesn't? Another interesting situation

The Rock vs Scott Steiner

The Rock is back in singles action against Scott Steiner this week on Raw. The first time he's competed against someone in a singles match in a long time, is The Rock still the same as his old self, or is he too used to having someone to help him out in the ring, whether it being a Mick Foley or a Kane, is he ready?

Tune into Raw to find out what goes down, 9pm on Spike TV

WWE RAW!

Place: New York

Date: August 2nd

Attendance: 11,820

Announcers: Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler

WWE Raw opened up with video footage of last weeks Raw, and the chaos which happened during the final few minutes of the Main Event. It recapped the moment that Rikishi missed his super kick on Rhyno, nailing Edge on the jaw, and sending him 10 feet down to the tables and electrical wires down below. It then showed the action in the ring, with Benoit looking at the action, and Hardy shaking the top rope causing him to take a fall all the way down. The referee slapped down a 3 count after a twist of fate, and got his pin on Benoit. It showed a shocked looking Matt Hardy at the ref raise his hand, as the video package ended.

Pyros, Fireworks, Music, and cue Jim Ross and Jerry Lawler. They welcomed everybody to Raw, and went through a recap of tonight card, when the familiar music of tonight’s World Title challenger, Christian,, blasted through the sound system. He and Trish strolled out to the ring with mic in hand looking as if he had something important to say.

Lets make this a lot more interesting

Christian: Tonight, everybody’s favourite wrestler will become the new Champion of the world, and do you know why? Because I’m the best wrestler in the world. He isn’t on my level of greatness, he isn’t even as good as The Brooklyn Brawler, and he is our Champion, and that leaves me a sad man. Tonight after years of being held back because the world was not ready for me, I have finally been given my chance to shine, and it will happen. I’m not just happy with a title shot, I want this to get interesting. So Benoit, get out here and listen to what I have to say.

Benoit walks out, title on his arm, and another microphone in his hand, but he doesn’t say anything, he just stands there and waits for Christian to speak.

Christian: You are the weirdest guy I know, you’re a freak, not worthy of a title, but we all know that, so there’s no point stating the obvious. Tonight Benoit I want the match to have a meaning, other than the day Christian wins the gold. I’ll cut straight to the chase, as tonight if you’re man enough, the match will be a “Loser leaves town for a month” match. So what do you say Benoit, you up for it or are you scared?

Benoit: Actions speak louder than words, tonight will be your last match for a month, and that’s all I have to say

Benoit leaves to the sound of his music, no nonsense and looking ready for Christian in tonight’s Main Event. Christian looked at Trish as they both smiled, knowing that tonight could be the biggest of their lives, as he would be Worlds Heavyweight Champion, and she would be Worlds Women’s Champion. It could be a great Main Event. (67.6%)

The first test of your career

We cut backstage to Eric Bischoff’s office, and we see him and consultant Aaron Aguila standing over the TV monitor watching what just went down in the ring.

Aguila: I just don’t get it sometimes Mr. Bischoff, I mean look at me. I’m standing backstage, doing nothing other than watching what goes down week in week out, whilst fools like Chris Benoit are holding the Worlds Championship, I don’t find that fair.

Bischoff: So you’re trying to say I’m a bad GM? Huh, DO YOU WANT TO KEEP THIS JOB?

Bischoff stares into the much taller Aguila’s eyes

Aguila: No, I wasn’t saying you was bad, I was jus saying that I never get a chance

Bischoff: Last week you got a chance, the chance of your life to show what you’re about, and you did against my special nephew Eugene. You beat him in under 3 minutes, but I know you want harder opponents, so that’s what you’re going to get. Right now I am going to make a match, and it’s going to be next. It’s going to be Aaron Aguila verses………………………Tajiri.

Aguila: What, are you sure about this? He’s a martial arts expert, his kicks feel like you’re getting hit with a steel pole

Bischoff looks at Aguila as if to say “How do you know?”

Aguila: So I’ve heard…………….But if this is what you want for me, then Tajiri will have to go down tonight, it’s my time to show the world what I’m made of

Aguila leaves the room with a determined look about him.

Bischoff: Again (53.1%)

Aaron Aguila vs Tajiri

Match starts off with Tajiri gaining control as Aguila allows him to utilise his mat style and keep the match very technical. Aguila started to come back into the match about midway through, using his size advantage against the smaller Tajiri. Aguila took full control of the match after a stunning big boot to the face that left Tajiri out cold on the floor, pin fall got a 2 count as Tajiri somehow mustered up the strength to kick out. Aguila signalled for his finishing move, the Layout, but Tajiri delivered a stiff kick to the shin, then hip, then chest, and finally when his opponent was on his knees, a huge Buzzsaw kick to the back of the head. Instead of going for the pin though, Tajiri went to the top rope, a mistake that would end up his downfall, as he leaped off to try an elbow drop, Aguila moved out of the way, causing Tajiri to crash down onto the mat. Aguila then recovered from the kick, and nailed Tajiri with the Layout (sit-down chokeslam), to gain the 1.2.3 count from the ref, and was the winner of the match.

After the match Aguila put a few boots into a hurting Tajiri, as he celebrated a hard earned victory.

A very close call

The pictures go to the car park where we see Edge arriving at the arena. He gets out of his car, picks up his bags and starts to make his way to the arena. All of a sudden we hear a big screeching noise, and a blacked out car comes speeding towards Edge looking as if it’s about to run him down. At the last second though, Edge dives out the way to avoid the danger. Edge dives back to his feet and starts shouting abuse at the crazy driver. What the hell was all that about? (77.1%)

If Ya Smellllllllllllllllll………then don’t come near me

We go to the interview section where Jonathon Coachman is standing by looking very nervous, as he is about to interview a man who’s made him look like a fool on many occasions, THE ROCK.

Coach: So tonight, we finally see The Rock return to singles action against a former wCw Champion in Scott Steiner. Will it be easy or is there still some singles ring rust?

Rock: Ring Rust? What the hell are you on about Coachman? The Rock don’t get no ring rust you stupid man. I am The Rock, The Most Electrifying Man In Sports Entertainment. I could be put of the ring until I’m 85 years of age, and still be able to kick anybody ass, especially yours, what a dumb question.

Coach: Well err…..

Rock: Did The Rock tell you to speak?……..No he didn’t, so you shut your mouth. *starts to sniff around* What the hell is that smell? I think it’s you Coachman, you smell like them two old ladies who used to run around here about 3 years ago, Moolah and Mae, you smell of old lady. What have you been doing you SICK FREAK? Has been it been Pie day for you or something? Ahhhhhh, no, no, no, get that image out of your head.

Coachman: I don’t smell, it’s just something else, it might be you

Rock: What the hell did you just say? Do you wan the Rock to kick your ass all across this arena? Give me that microphone so that you cannot speak whilst I’m with you. You remember the good times Coach? When you done the Charleston, that was a good time, although you did get a kick in the ass, but it sure was a good time. Or when I made you sing in front of millions of viewers, or when I caught you…yeah that’s enough. What I’m trying to say is, those were the good times, when you kept yourself up, now you just stink coachman, it’s horrid. Do you want to stink? Huh

Coach shakes his head

Rock: Well I know something that gets rid of the small of old lady, it’s call a “rollie polie” or a forward roll if you’re going all technical. If you want to see Coachman do a forward roll crowd, oh I forgot. Finally The Rock has come back, to New York City. With hat said and done, gimmie a “Coachman stinks” if you want to see this jackass do a roll. *The crowd complies*. C’mon do a roll then coachman, the crowd want you too, and you stink, so it’s your only option.

Coachman just stands there looking frustrated with The Rock

Rock: If you don’t do a roll tonight it’s going to be “The Rock vs Jonathon Coachman” and I’ll kick that stink out of you.

Coachman then goes to his knees and completes a forward role to the laughter of The Rock

Rock: That’s great Coachman, now get your monkey ass out of here and let The Rock finish his bit. *The Rock gears himself up* IF YA SMELLLLLLL, WHAT THE ROCK.IS.COOKIN’

The Rock looks straight into the camera giving the Peoples Eyebrow as the interview finishes. (97.1%)

Triple H and Randy Orton w/ Ric Flair vs Chris Jericho and Shelton Benjamin

The match gets under way with Orton and Jericho in the ring together. Orton gained the ealy advantage using some illegal tactics and the help of Flair to get the upper hand on Jericho. When Jericho was down HH came into the ring to add a few stomps to the “King of the World”, as Evolution were now in total control. HHH had a lapse in concentration for a split second and Jericho nailed him with a standing dropkick to send him down, but HHH scurried and tagged in Orton, who quickly regained control. Evolution dominated for another stretch of time, as Shelton had to watch Jericho get beaten down. There was a tag though, as HHH hit a knee lift on Jericho, it sent him backwards in the direction of Benjamin, and he tagged himself in. Shelton was like a house on fire, cleaning up and taking control. Now Benjamin and Jericho were in charge of the match, and Orton was on the receiving end of the punishment. The match degenerated into a huge brawl though, as all 4 men ended up in the ring fighting each other. Orton and Benjamin fought each other to the outside of the ring, and this got the refs attention, as back in the ring, HH nailed Jericho with a low blow, and a Pedigree, the ref turned around to see the pin, 1.2.3, Evolution were the winners of the match.

Evolution didn’t hang around, scattering up the ramp to celebrate the victory together.

Holla

Michael Hayes was backstage to interview Scott Steiner ahead of his match with The Rock.

Hayes: Tonight Scott you’re the first man to face The Rock in a singles match in a considerable amount of time, how do you feel this could work in your favour?

Steiner: Well tonight is time for my revenge, as last week I got hit from behind by Rock, causing me to walk straight into a chokeslam and cost me and Garrison the match, and I aint to happy. So tonight will be the time for The Rock to get his ass beat by “The Freak of Nature”, and he will realise why he should have never messed with me in the first place. Holla if ya’ hear me. (76.0)

The Rock vs Scott Steiner, special guest referee Kane

Before the match, Lillian Garcia got on the mic and told the crowd there would be a special guest referee. A huge explosion and his music revealed that it would be Kane.

Match started off with The Rock taking complete control over the match eventually clotheslining Steiner over the top rope onto the outside. The Rock kept in control after giving Steiner a DDT, which led to an attempted Peoples Elbow attempt, which Kane got in the way of. The Rock didn’t like that, picked up Steiner and gave him a Spine Buster, which Kane ignored and didn’t count, just staring into Rocky’s eyes. After this Steiner took advantage and used Kanes distraction to his advantage, kicking Rock in the groin and choking him out whilst he was on the floor. He attempted the Steiner Recliner after some punishment to The Rock, but Rocky squired free and to the outside. Steiner followed and was met with a clothesline from The Rock. When both men were back in the ring it was very even, with both having dominating spells, but out of nowhere Rock nailed Steiner with The Rock Bottom, and Kane went down to count 1……………………………………………..2…………………..there was a huge wait, and the Rock didn’t even wait for the count, he just got up, took off the arm pad and delivered the most electrifying move in sports entertainment, The Peoples Elbow. Another pin attempt 1……………………………………………..2…………………………………..Steiner wasn’t even moving………………………3. Kane finally slapped down the 3 count and gave the victory to The Rock. He then went outside, grabbed his Tag Title belt as he and Kane stared each other out as he made his way back up the ramp.

Evolution is not a joke Mr. Jericho

Backstage we see Chris Jericho packed up and on his way out of the arena when out off nowhere Evolution strike him down. Batista, Orton, and Flair do all the dirty work whilst HHH stands and watches until Jericho is helpless, and then he makes his mark. With Jericho down, HHH picks up his limp body, puts on some brass knucks, and punches Jericho right between him eyes, sending him down to his knees, and then flat on his face. HHH tells Jericho that this is what he gets for taking on Evolution. All 4 members leave as the camera shows Jericho lying there out cold. (81.0%)

Edge w/ Rikishi vs Rhyno, for the no.1 contendership of the IC Title

The match as a whole was one huge brawl that never really saw either man in full control. At the start the both went at each other like wild dogs, brawling around the ringside area with punches and kicks, the ref not able to do much to stop it. When finally back in the ring it was much the same, but a common thing was for one man to look like he was about to gain control, only for the other to fight back with lefts and rights. The turning point in the match was when Rhyno took the biggest advantage of the match after a huge clothesline that sent Edge down. Rhyno used some stomps to keep him down as edge desperately tried to get to his feet. Rhyno dropped an elbowdrop to the head to finally keep Edge down. Rhyno picked him back up and sent him to the ropes, missed one clothesline, missed another, DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE. Edge’s feet caught the ref in the face when he was thrust up into the air, and Rikishi came into the ring to help his buddy Edge. He stood him back up on his feet and gave him a couple of hard looking slaps to wake him up, and than BHAM, super kick to the face sending Edge down once again. What the hell is going on, Rikishi has turned on Edge, and Rhyno is making his way back to his feet. Rikishi gives Edge a few more kicks and leaves the ring. Rhyno stalks Edge preparing for the spear, just as the ref begins to awaken. Edge staggers back to his feet using the ropes, GORE!! Pinfall attempt, 1……………..2……………3, Rhyno wins and becomes the new no.1 contender for Shelton’s IC Title.

Rikishi climbs back into the ring after the match, scoops up Edge and nails him with the Rikishi Driver to add insult to injury. Rikishi then grabs the mic and begins to speak.

Rikishi: Earlier on I tried to run you down, just like I did to Stone Cold Steve Austin, but you dodged it and showed me that I couldn’t take you out behind your back, I had to do it to your face, and that’s exactly what I’ve done. I’m going to make it my personal mission to make sure that you never get any gold in your hands, and I’m going to stick by my word Edge.

Rikishi kicks Edge in the face and leaves the ring to a chorus of boos.

Ready for the title

We cut backstage to see Christian walking down the corridor on the way to his match with Chris Benoit with Trish Stratus. Christian stops in the corridor, looks over at Trish at mutters the words “Tonight is my night Trish, tonight is my night”. They kiss and carry on walking as Christian looks more ready than ever before. (67.0)

Chris Benoit © vs Christian w/ Trish Stratus, for the Worlds Heavyweight Title in a “1 month off” match

Slow start to the match as Christian avoided Benoit’s holds at all costs. Benoit took control of the early parts of the match using a good submission repertoire to keep his opponent on the ground, and when he let him back to his feet delivered a hard looking snap suplex to keep up the punishment on Christian. Christian’s spirit started to shine through midway through the match when he started to fight back against the heavyweight champion, and start to gain control. Christian whipped Benoit into the ropes, as Trish Stratus grabbed onto the top rope causing Benoit to fly over the top to the outside. Christian pummelled Benoit on the outside of the ring, smashing his face into the ring steps, scoop slamming him onto the floor, and dropping him throat first across the guard rain. Back in the ring Christian kept control of the match, pummelling away at Benoit with a flurry of stomps. Christian nailed Benoit with a crisp looking back suplex, followed up by a backbreaker to leave Benoit hurting on the mat. Christian dominated the Worlds Champion for a good spell of the match, locking in a figure 4 at one point that forced Benoit to crawl over to the ropes to break the hold. It was beginning to look like Christian was on the way to victory, but Christian made a vital mistake when he put his head down for a back body drop, and received a kick in the face. Both men then struggled for the power, and that drew Matt Hardy out to the ring, with a steel chair in hand. Trish Stratus then distracted the referee as Matt climbed into the ring, he swung, CRACK! He hit someone, but it wasn’t Benoit, it was Christian, and he was bleeding heavily. Christian was out cold, but Benoit didn’t want to pin him, as Matt Hardy high tailed through the crowd. Benoit locked on a Sharpshooter as Christian was bleeding very heavily, his face was truly wearing the crimson mask, maybe even two of them it was so bad. Christian had passed out, but before the ref could call off the match, Benoit let the hold go. Benoit picked up a dead weighted Christian and nailed him with a German Suplex, but that was enough for the ref to see, and he called it off due to blood loss on Christian’s behalf.

Winner: Chris Benoit by stoppage

Benoit left the ring with title in hand and a no emotion on face, clearly not caring what had just happened to Christian. No Christian until the 2nd of September after this loss, his stipulation backfired on him. A shot of Christian bleeding heavily was shown as the Raw logo went across the screen and off air.

5 Workers fired from the WWE

Gene Snisky, Jon Heidenreich, Chris Nowinski, Demond Thompson, and Lenny Lane have all been released from their WWE contracts. The releasing of Nowinski has come as a bit of a surprise, after being only a few weeks away from a comeback after recovering from a serious concussion. He wrestled 2 matches in OVW and has been let go. Snisky, Heidenreich, and Demond Thompson were not huge surprises, and Lenny Lane came in for a tryout, impressed with his charisma, but working as manager of Johnny Jetter obviously wasn't working out.

Last Weeks Smackdown!

The Undertaker keeps on winning

They are going to meet sooner or later, and they way things are going it's sooner rather than later, if you hadn't realised who I was talking about it's The Undertkaer and current WWE Champion Eddie Guerrero. The Undertaker took on Charlie Haas, and crushed him in quick time, showing Eddie Guerrero that he was in better shape than ever, but that didn't matter to Eddie, as the champ got on the mic told Taker that he had a surprise for him. The lights went out, and when they came back on there was a super imposed picture on the big screen with Undertaker in Eddie’s car with the sign "Viva La Rassa" above. Eddie told The Undertaker this is what life would look like is he was as laid back ass Eddie, and maybe if they were friends, but as they wasn't, he was going to be forced to kick his ass as soon as possible. This sent Taker into a rage, and he Tombstone Charlie Haas again as Smackdown went off air.

Booker T, WWE's "future"

Booker T claimed in an interview that he was the future of the WWE, and that it will be him who is the next WWE champion, and will pursue his goal after he's finished off Shawn Michaels and their feud. Shawn Michaels hit back by saying the he was the past, the present, and the future of Smackdown for as long as Booker T holds down a contract with the company, and that wouldn't be very long as he will soon chase him out of it. A match which stemmed from last week on Smackdown was arranged, Booker T vs RVD, after Booker and Chavo jr defeated Shawn and RVD in a tag match, with Booker pinning RVD after a Scissors Kick laid out RVD. The match didn't was very long, with Shawn running in and distracting Booker T , as well as RVD. RVD was telling Michaels to leave the ringside, and was kit with a kick to the gut and a Scissors Kick, gaining Booker the 1.2.3 and the victory for a second week in a row. Booker gave the cut throat sign to Michaels, yelling at him that he was to be next.

Mysterio and Ultimo nearly come to blows

After the Hollywood smackdown in which saw Ultimo Dragon and Rey Mysterio go at it for 30 minutes earning each other a time limit draw, these two can't seem to see eye to eye. They didn't shake hands after the match, they both looked disapointed. In the interview prior to the match, Ultimo interrupted Rey by speaking in Japanese to the camera, in which Rey told him to shut his mouth. In the ring it wasn't no different. Constant mistakes by the two, tagging themselves in, and the Ultimate (bad pun intended) by Ultimo Dragon when he knocked Rey off the top rope to the concrete floor outside the ring. Ultimo looked outside to see if Rey was ok, and got rolled up by Akio for the loss. After the match Ultimo blamed Rey for the loss, but they were separated by other team mate in the match Paul London. It looks as if these two are on course for another collision course.

Layfield defends title for first time

A week after winning the U.S title from John Cena at Hollywood Smackdown, John Bradshaw Layfield defended his U.S Championship for the first time against 3 month undefeated Val Venis, who has been on a mission to win as of late, but the winning streak came to a grinding halt when he met Bradshaw. The match was pretty even, but Layfield didn't want to give up his newly won title, and defeated Venis after nailing him with the Clothesline From Hell. After the match he had a message to give to hospitalised John Cena, and it was that the title was now his, and a rematch in the near future wasn't going to happen.

No longer the GM, and I don't like you

Blunt words from Kurt Angle towards John Cena as he explained that as he was no longer GM of Smackdown, as he handed the reigns over to Shane McMahon at Hollywood Smackdown!, he could do what he wanted. That is why he cost Cena his U.S Championship the same day he stepped down, as he had to watch him whilst he was GM, annoyed at his antics, but couldn't act in the way that he wanted. He said that he was only 1 week away from returning to full health, but it wouldn't be Cena he would be facing next week on Smackdown, it would be an opponent of better calibre. Cena came out to tell Angle that he would now be on his back until he gets a match. Cena wants Angle to watch his back from now on, or it could get ugly.
