Just found this excellent forum, and thought I'd post this here as I'm not getting any comments on a site i frequent with some other guys. Let me know what you think. Quick setup:

Between now and May 1st, all WWE title holders retained, with the exception of JBL, who lost his US Title to Chris Benoit. All other stories are fairly current and real.

This is my attempt to book the WWE in a realistic way as it is today. I won't be firing Triple H, Taker, and Cena just to hire Joe, because I don't see that happening tomorrow. I apologize for the format change, as I was kicking around a few different ideas. I saw the last one on here, and loved it, so I'm going with it:

WWE Monday Night RAW

May 01, 2006

The Show opens with Joey Styles and Tazz on commentary. The immediately begin talking about last week's shocking announcement after Backlash, where Mr. McMahon informed everyone that the roster split has been ended. Smackdown was cancelled for reasons beyond our control, and RAW now becomes the flagship show, with everyone on the same roster for the first time in years. This is made immediately obvious by the opening contest:

Kane And Big Show vs John Bradshaw Layfield and Randy Orton :

Orton picks up the win after a low blow to Kane. **3/4. After the match, Kane and Show attack and leave JBL and Orton lying in the ring.

Backstage Interview:

Mr. McMahon immediately appears on the Titantron as the faces exit the ring and cuts an interview, the just of it is as follows: He tells Kane and Big Show to look at the carnage they left in the ring. He tells them to take a good hard look at those 2, because starting next week, they could be facing them in one on one competition, with a chance to be the next Heavyweight Champion. Vince goes on to explain that as of now, the World Title and WWE Title are stripped from John Cena and Rey Mysterio. Starting next week will be a 14 man tournament to crowd the Undisputed WWE World Champion, which will culminate at King of the Ring on May 28. He announces the participants, of course gauging reaction to each of them as he goes. The now former World Champions Rey Mysterio and John Cena will both recieve first round byes. In addition to the 4 men in the ring, the tournament will also include Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Rob Van Dam, and Edge. From the now defunct Smackdown roster will be Mark Henry, The Unnnnnndertaker, Kurt Angle, and a final entrant that we will know by the end of the night.

Also at King of the Ring, the Intercontinental and United States Titles will be unified when Chris Benoit meets Shelton Benjamin.

The Cruiserweight Title has been declared vacant because of Gregory Helms' inability to defend. So a 4-way Elimination match will happen at KOTR. Starting tonight will be qualifiers for that match.

The Tag Team titles have also been stripped and the Unified WWE World Tag Team Champions will be crowd at King of the Ring in a 3 way dance.

But tonight, in that very ring, we'll see the rest of our competitiors in the WWE World Title Tournmanet in action, as RAW meets Smackdown one last time. It'll be Shawn Michaels, Triple H, John Cena, Edge, and Rob Van Dam taking on the team of Rey Mysterio, Kurt Angle, Mark Henry, The Undertaker, and their mystery partner, who will be the final entrant of the tournament.

In-ring Segment:Shelton Benjamin appeared in the ring and called out Chris Benoit. Benoit answered and called himself the greatest technical wrestler in the world today, while Benjamin called himself the greatest athlete today. Stare-down ended. Crowd was pretty into this.

Jamie Noble vs Scotty 2 Hotty vs Funaki: Winner advances to 4-way at KOTR for Cruiserweight Title

Quick match that saw Noble pin Funaki, and them make Scotty submit to the dragon sleeper. *

MNM vs London and Spanky: Winner advanced to 3-way at KOTR

MNM picks up the win in a good match, after hitting the snapshot on Brian Kendrick. **1/2

A video hyped the RAW participants in the WWE World Title Tournament set to begin next week: Kane, Big Show, John Cena, Triple H, Rob Van Dam, Edge, and Shawn Michaels were all shown, and their various title reigns shown as well. The theme: Can they climb back and reclaim the top prize in wrestling.

Finlay vs Lashley

Good brawl. Lashley got the win by disqualification when Finlay refused to release an illegal choke on Lashley. *1/4 After the match, they continued brawling and were pulled apart by officials.

Backstage Interview: John Cena cuts an interview talking about how it feels to lose the WWE Title in the snap of someone's fingers. He runs down each opponent in the tourney, and cuts a rap to talk about all of them.

Mickie James vs Torrie Wilson (For The WWE Women's Title)

Mickie picks up the win in an ugly match with a tornado DDT. DUD. Torrie obviously still has no place in the ring.

Backstage Interview: Rey was shown sitting in his locker room and gave an interview telling how it felt to have his belt taken from him. He then mentioned all the amazing competitors, and how it will be an honor to go through each of them to reclaim his prize and become the unified champion

Team RAW (John Cena, Triple H, Edge, Rob Van Dam, and Shawn Michaels) vs Team SMACKDOWN (Rey Mysterio, Kurt Angle, Mark Henry, The Undertaker, and ???????):

After everyone was in the ring, the familiar music of BATISTA hit as he came out on the stage in full gear. He made his way to the ring as Joey Styles and Tazz gushed about him being the final participant in the tournament.

Batista got the win in a hot match with plenty of tags when he pinned Edge following the Batista bomb. ***. Everyone was very cautious of each other, with John Cena and Triple H constantly watching each other, as well as Rey Mysterio and Randy Orton on the smackdown side. The show ended with everyone staring down the rest of the men, looking forward to the start of the tournament next week.

Okay, I have an idea for a match ratings system, and I'm gonna go with it. The lowest match rating on my first show was for Mickie/Torrie, which was probably pretty fuckin horrible. That was a 49 Rating overall - so, a DUD. The 10 man Main Event got an 81 Rating. It was probably an entertaining match.

What I've decided is that the scale will run from 50-100, with one * being in the 50's, 2 ** in the 60's, and so on. I imagine a ***** match is damn near impossible, which is good, and a **** would be very impressive, I think. From here on out, I'm going to attempt to use this system, and see how it goes.

Edit: I should clarify this: 60 = *, 70 = **, 80 = ***, 90 = ****, 100 = *****. I really like this, as it lets me see MOTY candidates, and see who really sucked that week. Plus I can bring out the negative stars for something like Mark Henry v Taker.

News and Notes from the Torch: 05-26-06

Raw's Ratings continue to thrive, this week up to a 6.90.

The Undertaker suffered a torn ACL, and will reportedly miss at least 16 month with recovery and rehab. Many backstage feel that the Undertaker's career is probably over.

MNM continues to get great reviews for both their in-ring and out of ring work. Many people are calling them the future of the business.

Randy Orton was recently informed that he will not be a part of main event plans for many month. Orton didn't take the news well, but has agreed to be a team player.

Rey Mysterio, Batista, John Cena, and Triple H who are all in the King of the Ring semi-finals this Sunday, are rumored to be part of a major feud that will carry through the summer. One report suggested some kind of non-finish to set up a 4 way down the road.

The pre-show before King of the Ring, will reportedly feature Mickie James defending the WWE Women's Title against Trish Stratus.

WWE.com RAW Preview:

With King of the Ring now in the books, will RAW ever be explosive this week. As the Pay Per View telecast ended, Triple was standing tall in the ring with the WWE World Title in his hands for the 11th time. But he didn't do it without some help. What was the meaning of Edge, Johnny Nitro, and Joey Mercury getting involved in Triple H's affairs, and what's next for The Game?

Also, Kurt Angle did as he promised and became the first ever WWE Television Champion by winning an over the top rope Battle Royal. Kurt has promised to not only speak to the live crowd, but make his first title defense this Monday at RAW!

Jamie Noble captured the WWE Cruiserweight Title in a photo finish at King of the Ring, and he'll be in action this week on RAW, when he defends his new title against Funaki.

All this, plus a hot rumor that a famous face from the Monday Night Wars will be returning to RAW means that you can't miss RAW this week, live on the USA Network.

News and Notes from The Torch, 05/29/06:

King of the Ring backstage was a huge success. Everyone was very happy with the show, even though it lacked that one "great" match to put it over the top.

RAW is scheduled to be a big turning point show tonight, that sets the stage for the future and gives us an idea of the direction of the company.

Head booker Jamie Geist has reportedly convinced Vince McMahon that an on screen figurehead is stale and way past it's time, so McMahon will serve as "WWE President" in regards to on screen booking decisions, but his time as an on screen character seems to have come to an end.

Many in the online community are questioning the decision to put the new TV Title on Kurt Angle. Many feel it could've been used to elevate a younger star.

No word on who the familiar face from the Monday Night Wars might be, as WWE really hasn't inked any new talent to any deals. Your guess is as good as ours on this one.

I quite like the idea of uniting RAW and Smackdown, at least in premise, since the possibilities are enormous. I'm assuming since you've united the two rosters, anyone can appear on either show? The problem I see is NOT that the rosters are too big to be united, but that there are too many upper mid carders and main eventers - which is why they did the split in the first place. I'm doing a diary with RAW at the moment, and it's a headache to fit all the important guys in there. Leaving people behind is going to be very easy, but with some exceptional management it can be pulled off, as I'm sure others have done before.

I'm not so keen on the bullet point format, though. It looks neat and tidy, but reads awkwardly. I've found I've skipped most of the detail because I don't like my reading pace to be dictated so strictly by the writer. Maybe just me.

One more thing, The Naturals, Aries and Joe aren't free agents. Also, Joe is way more over with the general public than CM Punk and the others, so I can't see him going to OVW in real life. MIGHT happen, but I don't it. TNA is hardly ROH, after all. My mum knows who Samoa Joe is, and that's my measuring stick (Y)

Solid start though, and some good, fresh ideas will take this a long way.

Much appreciated.

Your question about "appearing on either show" is actually not a factor, as Smackdown was "cancelled" to open up the diary. And yes, I'm having a hell of a time trying to squeeze everyone in, and many are being left behind in the dust. I desperately need a B-level show, which I'm working on.

The Naturals, Joe, and Aries were on open contracts in the game, making them free agents to me. In a nice bit a realism, once I snatched them away, TNA signed a host of people including Killings, Styles, and Sting to written contracts.

And I agree that Joe would be hesitant to go to OVW, but it was part of his contractual agreement.

As for the bullets -- I may agree with you. I'm still torn on what I do and don't like about different formats, but more than anything, I don't want to continue changing, so I'm running with it for now.

Appreciate the feedback greatly.

Opening Contest: CM Punk, Paul London, and Brian Kendrick v Kid Kash, Gregory Helms, and Carlito

o The faces control the early portion of the match as we are treated to a picture-in-picture shot of prerecorded comments from Jamie Noble.

o Noble: “Hey Punk! Yeah, CM Punk. I’ve been hearing about you gloating backstage that you punked me out last week. See it’s simple boy. I’m a champion, and you’re nothing but a punk. We don’t mix well. You see, you got lucky and won a qualifying match to get into a title match on only your second match ever in the WWE. That’s called beginner’s luck. And unfortunately, your luck just ran out. Because if you ever want to step into the ring with the WWE Cruiserweight Champion again, you’re gonna have to earn it this time. Work your way up the ladder. I’ll be waiting at the top.......punk!

o Carlito is sent flying over the top rope by a dropkick from Brian Kendrick. Kendrick springboards to the top rope and comes flying down on Carlito.

o Bischoff: ”Thank You. I believe Mr. Benjamin has proven his point.

o He is finishing taping up a piece of paper on his door that reads: OPEN CONTRACT

o As he smoothes the final corner of the paper down, a hand slaps against the contract, pen in hand.

o Angle looks up as the camera pans over to reveal the hand belongs to Fit Finlay.

o Finlay: ”You may as well take this thing down, because it’s no longer an open contract. Not sure if you remember this or not, but I was once WCW Television Champion, and if I’m being honest, it was one of the high points of my career. (Finlay signs the paper) And tonight, I plan on revisiting that high point, when I take that WWE Television Title from you Kurt.”

o Angle looks up, smiles, and sticks his mouthpeice in before he looks directly in Finlay’s eyes and lets out a semi-audible “YEAHH!!!”.


Backstage Segment: Stylin and Profilin

o A camera shot shows a long white stretch limo pulling into the parking lot.

o As the door swing open, Ric Flair exits first, followed closely by Triple H, Edge, Nitro, Mercury, and Melina.

o Post Match: Randy Orton grabs a microphone: ”So last week in this ring, I had to compete in a tag team match. And even though I don’t like to admit it, I got pinned. And Bobby Lashley was the one who pinned me. Well Lashley, I don’t really take well on the losing end of things, so I want a rematch. But this time, I control the variables. Next week, I’ll have me a tag team partner, and you find yourself one. Pretty simple right? Except this time, it’ll be your shoulder pinned on the mat after the R....K....O.”

Kane & Big Show v The Mexicools.

o Kane and Big Show enter to separate music, and don’t look like a very cohesive team.

o Kane dominates the first part of the match over Super Crazy.

o He turns his attention down the hall and speaks: ”Hey, just the guy I was looking for!”

o Big Show comes walking down the hallway, fuming mad.

o Big Show: ”What Cena? What the hell do you want? You gonna ask me to be your tag team partner? Well let me save you the trouble. The answer is NO! I’m done with tag teams, especially with people I can’t trust. Especially with people with deep attitude problems. People like Kane, and people like y—“

o Cena: ”Woah, woah woah Big man. Your beef isn’t with me. I’m not gonn—

o A bit calmer, but still angry Big Show replies: ”The answer is no John, and I think we better leave it at that.

And from now on, with this army behind me, I’ll get what I want, as long as I want. Cause what we’ve done here is amass the single most impressive group of wrestlers in the WWE today, and we’ve reincarnated one of the greatest groups of all time. The Four Horsemen. And who better to lead us into battle but the man who wrote the playbook on everything Horsemen. The ORIGINAL Horsemen himself......well hell, this man doesn’t need an introduction.

o Ric Flair takes the mic: ”You know something. People already ask me why. They ask me how I could do it. How could you rejoin Triple H, Naitch? How could you align youself with that sleazeball Edge. How can you join forces with those young, brash, punks, MNM. How? How could I not! In this business, you either get with the best thing goin, or the world passes you by. I’ve lived a long life in this business. I’m 57 years old. And I’ll be the first to tell you that there isn’t as much pop in these fists. There isn’t as much snap in these legs. And there isn’t as much air in these lungs. But one thing that never changes, one thing that always stays alert, one thing that I’ll always have....is this brain. So how could I join the single greatest wrestler in the world today, Triple H? How could I join the best loudmouth sleazeball, Edge? How could I join the men who are single-handedly revitalizing and dominating tag team wrestling, MNM? It’s easy. Because I’m the Nature Boy, and the Nature Boy only aligns himself with the best. And damn you’re one fine looking woman, Melina. We’re gonna go get in the limo, take a quick spin over to the 5-star Hotel, order up some cocktai—


Flair is cut off in mid-sentence by the music of Batista.

o Batista walks out on the stage, microphone in hand

o “Oh Ric, you just never change do ya? I should’ve expected it. I should’ve known. I think I did know when you hit the ring last week. Deep down, I hoped....but I think I knew. And you’re the greatest in the world, so why should I feel ashamed about getting duped by you. But what I can’t quite get over, is getting duped by someone who isn’t, well, shall we say, isn’t on that “main event level” like you Ric. Yeah, Edge, I’m talking to you. Sure, at King of the Ring, you put one over on me. You got me. And let me tell you what....that is the LAST time it is ever going to happen. Because after next week, you won’t have those legs to carry you to the ri—

o Edge: “Hold up there sport. Whaddaya mean next week?”

o Batista: ”Well, obviously you didn’t get the memo. But from the President of Mr. McMahon, I received confirmation, that next week, in that very ring, it’ll be Batista one on one with ANY MEMBER of the Horsemen. And I don’t think I need to tell you twice, that I pick your scrawny little ass.”

o Edge and the Horsemen begin laughing as Edge grabs the mic: “Oh cmon, I knew you were a big dumb animal, but can’t you get Rey Mysterio to at least read your mail for you? Oh that’s right.....he made an early exit tonight, didn’t he. Listen jackass, if you read it a bit more closely, you’ll see that it says that next week, Batista goes one on one WITH A MEMBER of the Horsemen. And sorry to burst your bubble, but we drew straws backstage, and Joey Mercury is the lucky winner!”

o The camera cuts to a shot of Mercury’s wide open jaw, which he quickly fixes into a look of worried confidence. Nitro begins rubbing his shoulders from behind, telling him he’s got this one covered.

WWE.com Monday Night RAW Preview:

Last week was a whirlwind of a week on Monday Night RAW as we heard first hand from The Four Horsemen and their plans of WWE domination. Batista laid out a challenge to Edge, who then modestly pawned it off on fellow Horsemen Joey Mercury. Mercury goes one on one with Batista this week on RAW!

Also, Kurt Angle has promised to have yet another open contract for his WWE Television Title. What superstar will attempt to slow down the wrestling machine, who is as hot as anyone else on the roster right now?

WWE North American Champion Chris Benoit will be in action in a non-title match against John Bradshaw Layfield. JBL, apparently upset about his no-contest last week where he could’ve earned a shot at the North American Title, has challenged Benoit to a non-title match. JBL promises to prove himself a worthy challenger and earn a title match down the road by defeating Benoit on RAW.

Randy Orton laid down the challenge last week to Bobby Lashley to find a tag team partner to face Orton and his partner of choice. Who will both superstars find to team up with them in this battle?

And in breaking news, a WWE.com exclusive, The Mexicools, Super Crazy and Psicosis have issued a challenge to MNM for the WWE World Tag Team Titles. The Mexicools, fresh off of their surprising win last week over the Big Show and Kane, have put themselves back in title contention. What will the champions have to say about that?

o Rey: ”I’m gonna make this short and sweet. Anyone who watched RAW last week saw me laid out in the parking lot. Frankly I don’t remember much. I remember getting out of my rental car, walking towards the back entrance, and the next thing I know I’m on my stomach in pain. As I lay there almost unconscious I do remember seeing a few sets of legs walking away from me, away from the parking lot. And what I remember more than anything is that voice. Triple H’s voice. “I guess that’ll teach him to get involved in the big boys’ business”. Well Triple H. You may have hurt me, and you may have hobbled me. But I promise, before this night is over, you’re gonna see that I’m not gonna be walked all over by you and the Horsemen. I may only stand 5 foot 6. I may only weight 165 pounds. But I’m gonna show you Triple H, that it isn’t all about what’s on the outside....it has alot to do with what’s on the inside as well. And you say I shouldn’t get involved in the big boys’ business.

Mr. Benjamin and myself were recently notified by the offices of President Vince McMahon that Mr. Benjamin’s rematch clause will not be valid because the Intercontinental Title is no longer a championship in the WWE. Of course you must understand the ludicrousness of this, and will give my client his rightful rematch, correct?

o Triple H: ”What do we want? It isn’t what we want. It’s what YOU want. You made a little challenge to the Tag Team Champions, MNM. Well who exactly have you defeated lately? The odd-couple last week? Sure, cause they were beating each other’s asses, they couldn’t be bothered with the two of you. Anyway, the Tag Team Champs have a bit of a message for you. They said all you have to do is a beat a tag team of their choosing tonight, and you can have your title shot next week, right here on RAW. Pretty simple right?

o Edge: ”Wrong actually. You see, you’ll be facing two former WWE Tag Team Champions. Because the tag team you have to face is standing right here acrossed from you. You’ll be facing the WWE World Champion Triple H, and the Rated R Superstar himself...me. Now we understand if you guys have some lawn work to go take care of. We just thought we’d bring the message. You guys have a good nigh—“

You remember what the main event is all about, right John?”

But rest assured, as soon as I find one, or hell, even if I don’t, I’m coming for you, your “main event” tag team partner, and that little ho-bag you call a manager.

But tonight, we’re in a bit of a subdued mood. As you can see, tragedy has befallen one member of the greatest Tag Team in wrestling today. So without further ado, the moment you’ve all been waiting for.....let’s hear from Johnny Nitro.

o Nitro somberly takes the microphone: ”I have some unfortunate news to give to all of MNM’s fans tonight. Last week, right here in this ring, I was the victim of a horrible act of rage and jealousy. You all saw it, when Shawn Michaels ran into the ring and violently threw me off of the middle rope and to the floor. Upon landing, I broke my fibula. The doctors tell me I’ll be out more than 6 months, but I promise to push that up as much as possible to get myself back into the ring for all of my fans. Of course, this story broke earlier in the week on the internet, and is old news by now. What isn’t old news, is the other injury MNM suffered on Monday Night last week.”.

o Nitro hands the mic to Mercury, who slowly removes his sunglasses and looks into the camera like a lost puppy dog.

o Mercury: ”That’s right Nitro. You see, last week, when my tag team partner had his leg viciously broken, he lost the ability to do what he loves...compete in this ring, and be one half of the best Tag Team Champs in history. But I lost something too. Last week.....I lost my smile. I lost it, and frankly I don’t think I’ll be able to find it for the better part of 6 months. Sorry I’m getting choked up here, cause I promised myself I wouldn’t cry, but it is just hard when you don’t have a smile. So with that being said, I regret to inform all of our fans, that due to these two extreme circumstances, we will not be able to defend our Tag Team Titles as scheduled versus the Mexicools tonight.”

o The fans boo as Mercury and Melina begin to help Nitro from the ring. Suddenly, the Titan Tron comes alive, and WWE President Vince McMahon appears on the screen.

o Mr. McMahon: “Hold on there MNM. I promise not to take much of your time. I may not be their live in the arena tonight, but I still have a promise to uphold to the people. So I regret to inform YOU that tonight, it’ll be you Joey Mercury, and a tag team partner of your choice, defending the WWE Tag Team Titles against the Mexicools.

That’s the only message you could be sending me when you came and kicked me square in the head last week and made me lose my tag team match to the Mexicools. So don’t ask me what I want with you. You brought this on yourself. I’m here to serve up a warning. It’s kind of like giving a retarded kid a 9 point lead in a game of pick up basketball. I’m putting you on notice. I don’t know what you’re trying to prove getting involved with Horsemen business in the ring a few weeks ago, but you saw where that got you. Then you have the nerve to show your face again last week? Be smart. Don’t show up next week at RAW, and if you do, you better just steer clear of me and the Horsemen. Oh, and get your little hands off of my title. That’s the closest you’re ever gonna get to this thing, so I hope you enjoyed the last 60 seconds.

Edge...you dodged me once, and you threw Joey Mercury at me. Ask him how that went last week. Now Edge, if you wanna dodge me again, and keep being a coward, that’s fine. But you’re gonna do it in the public eye. Because right now, I am officially challenging you to meet me in the ring. You cost me the WWE World Title at King of the Ring, and you’ve basically been a pain in my ass, and all of these people’s asses for the last year or so. So now, I’m leaving it up to you.

WWE.com Monday Night RAW Preview for June 26, 2006:

Don't miss another exciting week on RAW. Last week Triple H issued a warning to Rey Mysterio that he would be best off staying out of his, and the Horsemen's business. Rey will be at RAW this week, and what will he have to say after the threats from The Game.

Jamie Noble voluntarily put his WWE Cruiserweight Title up for grabs when he gave his blessing for last week's Triangle match between Paul London, Kid Kash, and Chavo Guerrero to become a #1 Contender's Match. London emerged victorious, and this week faces Noble for his Cruiserweight gold.

And just announced....in a match to determine the offical #1 Contender to the North American Championship, it will be Rob Van Dam v John Bradshaw Layfield v Bobby Lashley v Shelton Benjamin. These 4 superstars have competed in a number of matches recently that for one reason or another, have been unable to come to a finish and crown a #1 Contender. So from WWE President Vince McMahon's office, this match is going to a Fatal Fourway Match, and will be NO Disqualification!

I'm torn on your diary, to be quite honest.

I personally like the bullet format, but you aren't quite doing it justice. It works fine until you add in the full quote of whoever is talking, which usually makes me skip to the match result, because it throws me off.

MNM and Edge in the Horsemen? I am not one for WWE Horsemen revivals anyways, but for some reason, I can't see any of them as Horsemen. Edge is kind of a loner, and MNM just don't quite fit for me.

Another WWE Title? Not digging that, seeing as how I think they have too many already.

However, I like a lot of what's going on, and I'll definitely be checking back often to see what changes if any you make.

Any recmodendations on how to fix the "Large quote and I skip ahead" part?

And I'd hardly say my WWE has too many titles, since we lost the World Title, US Title, and WWE Tag Titles to unification.

You can either paraphrase what was said, or just write out dialogue separate from the match. That's the easiest way.

Also, I REALLY could have stated that better. Fans don't forget, and bringing a TV title in when you had a US Title probably would be seen as a step down in long time fans eyes. Why unify titles and then debut a new one? But I can forget that, since it IS the main theme of your diary. :)
