In my view the perfect intro to your diary. I'm looking forward to this immensly, I hope you don't go down the roster split route. Where did you get this scenario by the way?

Thanks for the feedback so far and as always it's appreciated.

El Benjito; I downloaded a 2002 scenario and just did a little research, updating the alignments, champions and such from No Way Out and onwards. If you want I can send you what I've got over, just drop me your email address.

Raw will be up shortly.

Thanks,

The footage comes to an holt on a close up of the black spray paint on Austin's back which read &quot;nWo&quot;. The footage stops and the pyrotechnics ensue.</p><p align="left">The camera pans around the crowd to reveal such decorated signs as &quot;nWo 4-life&quot; and &quot;Jericho sux&quot;. We then cut to ringside to where Jim Ross sits with Jerry &quot;The King&quot; Lawler.</p><p align="left"><b>JR: </b><font color="#800000"><i>&quot;Welcome to Monday Night Raw! I'm Jim Ross and tonight I'm joined at ringside with Jerry &quot;The King&quot; Lawler. We are just twenty-four hours post No Way Out, and bah gawd what an event it was! We witnessed the shocking debut's of the three men collectively known as the New World Order; Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash! They made their presence felt in last night's main event when it looked as though Austin had the Undisputed title won, but the nWo hit the ring and cost Austin the match. And I can assure you, tonight we'll see one angry rattlesnake!&quot;</i></font></p><p align="left"><b>The King: </b><font color="#800000"><i>&quot;Shocking isn't the word to describe it JR!

The fans cheer at their foremost as &quot;Stone Cold&quot; Steve Austin storms out from the back. Austin doesn't look too pleased; but can you blame him? The New World Order cost him the World Championship last night at No Way Out. Austin climbs onto the apron, through the ropes and into the ring. He snatches the microphone off Howard Finkel and walks into the centre of the ring.</p><p align="left"><b>Austin:</b><i> &quot;Cut ma' damn music!&quot;</i></p><p align="left">On queue the music stops.</p><p align="left"><b>Austin:</b><i> &quot;I ain't in the mood for no sh*t today, ya see, last night I had the Undisputed title won..

That's why the boys in the back didn't welcome you with open arms, it's 'cause we don't know what you like an' quite frankly.. We don't like you! Hogan, Hall, Nash... Get the hell out here now so I can open a can o' whoop-ass on yer' sorry ass'!&quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans like the sound of this.</p><p align="left"><b>Austin:</b><i> &quot;Hall, Nash, Hogan - if yer' don't come out now I'll go to tha' back an' drag your sorry asses out!&quot;</i></p><p align="left"><b>&quot;No Chance, that's what you got!&quot; </b>Vince McMahon's music hits to the dismay of the fans. Austin looks pissed off as Vince McMahon makes his way out from the back with a huge shit-eating grin on his face. Austin steps back into the corner as McMahon walks up the ring steps and climbs into the ring. McMahon goes face to face with the &quot;Texas Rattlesnake&quot;. McMahon takes a microphone and steps back.</p><p align="left"><b>McMahon: </b><i>&quot;I see you're a little upset, right Steve?&quot;</i></p><p align="left">McMahon's smile widens, Austin doesn't reply.</p><p align="left"><b>McMahon: </b><i>&quot;You're upset because of what the nWo did, aren't you?&quot;</i></p><p align="left">McMahon pauses and again, Austin doesn't reply.</p><p align="left"><b>McMahon: </b><i>&quot;And rightly so, you had Jericho down for the three count until Hulk Hogan, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash came out from the back and put a beating on you. Austin, I told you and everyone else in the WWF that the nWo are a poison, a cancer and they ARE goin' to slowly kill MY creation..&quot;</i></p><p align="left">Austin interrupts.</p><p align="left"><b>Austin:</b><i> &quot;So you reckon the nWo are gonna whoop some ass to kill tha' WWF? They ain't if ol' Stone Cold has somethin' to do 'bout it! In fact, I'm gonna go backstage an' drag 'em out here right now!&quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans explode with cheers as Austin walks towards the ropes, McMahon looks shocked.</p><p align="left"><b>McMahon: </b><i>&quot;Wait a minute.. Wait a damn minute, Austin!&quot;</i></p><p align="left">Austin stops and turns to McMahon with an expression on his face which says it all; &quot;What the hell do you want?!&quot;</p><p align="left"><b>McMahon: </b><i>&quot;Don't blame the nWo, Austin, blame Ric Flair.

Austin looks at him with a look of disbelief spread upon his face. The Rattlesnake has had enough!<b> STUNNER! Stone Cold Stunner to McMahon in the centre of the ring! </b>McMahon lays flat on his back, arms spread eagled, eyes wide open but still has the estranged look on his face. Austin looks down at McMahon and gives him the middle finger before heading to the back. <b>(87)</b></p><p align="left"><b>JR: </b><font color="#800000"><i>&quot;Vince McMahon, I've never seen McMahon like this before..

I don't think he realises what he's doing.&quot;</i></font></p><p align="left"><b>The King: </b><font color="#800000"><i>&quot;As Mr McMahon said JR, blame Ric Flair!

Out next is Saturn. The fans don't really respond to Saturn, he is a parody of himself nowadays and his nothing like he was back when he was a key part of the Radicalz. DDP and Saturn lock up. Saturn takes control with a quick headlock and an hip throw. Saturn tries to lock DDP in the Rings of Saturn early but DDP counters and finds himself flat on his back after a quick suplex. However, Saturn can't keep the momentum going as he loses concentration. DDP makes him pay for the lack of concentration with a spinning powerbomb, into the cover but Saturn kicks out on two. DDP with a spinning clothesline, also gets the two count. Saturn evades another clothesline attempt and hits DDP with a knee to the gut. Perry Saturn is a former European Champion and his looking to regain the gold tonight. Saturn hoists DDP into the air and slams him down hard with a belly to belly suplex. Saturn covers DDP and only gets the two count. He was so close there but yet so far away. Saturn pulls Page up and sets him up for a Cradle Fisherman's Suplex but Page pushes Saturn away. <b>Saturn turns back to Diamond Dallas Page and from out of nowhere his hit with the Diamond Cutter which gets the academic three </b>count.</p><p align="left"><b>WINNER: Still European Champion; Diamond Dallas Page<br>OR: 65</b></p><p align="left">After the bout DDP retrieves the European title and gets his arm raised high into the air by the referee. DDP leaves as we switch to ringside.</p><p align="left"><b>JR: </b><font color="#800000"><i>&quot;Diamond Dallas Page showed us why he is indeed the European Champion, right there with an impressive victory over Perry Saturn.&quot;</i></font></p><p align="left"><b>The King: </b><font color="#800000"><i>&quot;He's an idiot, JR!

The New World Order has been unleashed upon the WWF, and that isn't good.&quot;</i></font></p><p align="left"><u><font color="#FF0000"><b>A Favour For Daddies Little Girl<br></b></font></u>We switch backstage to the VIP room. We see Vince McMahon laying on the leather sofa with an ice pack on his neck. Suddenly, Stephanie McMahon bursts into the room. Vince doesn't look up or anything, in fact, he remains laying flat on his back with a &quot;out of it&quot; look on his face. Vince his heavily in thought. Stephanie doesn't see him.</p><p align="left"><b>Steph: </b><i>&quot;Dad?&quot;</i></p><p align="left">Stephanie peers around the sofa curiously to see Vince laying on the couch.</p><p align="left"><b>Steph: </b><i>&quot;Oh god, what as he done to you?!&quot;</i></p><p align="left">Stephanie looks concerned, Vince looks up.</p><p align="left"><b>McMahon: </b><i>&quot;Huh?&quot;</i></p><p align="left"><b>Steph: </b><i>&quot;Daddy, are you alright?

You've got it! Tonight it'll be Kurt Angle versus Triple H!&quot;</i></p><p align="left">A devilish grin emerges on Stephanie's face. She smiles like a Cheshire cat before hugging her father.</p><p align="left"><b>Steph: </b><i>&quot;Thanks daddy, Triple H will pay.&quot;</i></p><p align="left">Stephanie skips off out of the room looking excited as Vince lays back down on the couch, still with a look of delusion on his face. <b>(90)</b></p><p align="left"><u><font color="#FF0000"><b>Respect 24/7</b></font></u><br>We switch to a different backstage location, and in this location we see<b> Maven</b> standing at a vending machine, innocently chatting to some backstage employees with the Hardcore Championship swung over his shoulder. Maven turns around and receives a big soupe bone to his face! It's <b>The Undertaker</b>! The Undertaker throws Maven into the vending machine before hitting him hard with another right hand. The backstage employees scatter as Taker drags Maven through the corridors. Maven fights back with a blow to the mid-section of the American Badass, but Taker puts him in his place with a big right hand to the face. Taker continues to drag Maven and eventually they end up on the top of the ramp. Maven his down on his knees and receives an hard boot to the face from The Undertaker. The Undertaker looks down at Maven with a sinister glare in his eyes; he's obviously still upset about losing to The Rock at No Way Out. The Undertaker drags Maven down the ramp and throws him into the ring. Undertaker stays on the outside and goes under the ring and retrieves a trash can. The Undertaker re-enters the ring and throws the trash can down to the mat as JR dubs him as a sadistic human being. A referee races down to the ring, on queue, as Taker lifts Maven up onto his shoulders. Taker holds the reigning Hardcore Champion, the man who beat him for the title, in the air before driving him down hard with a <b>Last Ride through the trash can!</b> The Undertaker mockingly puts his foot on Maven, demanding &quot;You will respect me&quot; as the fans jeer him loudly. The referee goes down to the mat and starts the count; ..1...2...3! There wasn't a chance of Maven kicking out of that.</p><p align="left"><b>NEW HARDCORE CHAMPION; The Undertaker<br>OR: 70</b></p><p align="left">Taker proceeds to pull Maven back up to his feet. Taker hits Maven with a knee to the gut and lifts him back into the air, but this time it isn't the Last Ride he goes for, in fact it's the Tombstone Piledriver. Taker drives Maven head first down into the mat with the Tombstone as the fans boo loudly. Taker looks into the crowd and shouts, in a demanding tone &quot;You will ALL respect me!&quot; before he can continue we here the chimes kick in on the PA system, and then: &quot;Woooo!&quot;</p><p align="left"><u><font color="#FF0000"><b>Show Some Respect</b></font></u><br>Ric Flair struts out onto the ramp as Taker stands in the ring. Taker looks up at Flair, who holds a microphone. Taker doesn't look too happy, he as that menacing glare in his eyes and the New Hardcore Champion his ready to fight.</p><p align="left"><b>Flair: </b><i>&quot;Taker.. Taker.. You can't do whatever the hell you want, especially when ol' Naitcha' Boy is around.. WOOO!&quot;</i></p><p align="left">Flair pauses for the moment as the arena is engulfed in the fans' cheers.

You go 'round bullyin' rookies and people smaller than ya'. We don't like that, and that's why we don't show you any respect anymore and that's why the fans have lost the respect they had for ya. Maybe it's about the time you show us some respect, Taker! Show us some respect!&quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans can't stop cheering for Flair. Taker shakes his head in disbelief; he can't believe what he's hearing.</p><p align="left"><b>Flair: </b><i>&quot;And if nobody stands up to you Taker, I will.&quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans pop once more, what an harrowing statement from the fifty-percent owner of the World Wrestling Federation to the respect demanding Hardcore Champion. <b>(89)</b></p><p align="left"><u><font color="#FF0000"><b>Booker T, Goldust &amp; William Regal vs. Edge, Kane &amp; Rob Van Dam</b></font></u><br>Each superstar makes their separate entrance, which consumes quite a lot of valuable show time. The reigning Intercontinental Champion starts things off in the ring with Edge. Edge backs Regal into the corner, and the Goodwill Ambassador tags in the Bizarre One Goldust. Goldust goes after Edge and the two lock up, Goldust breaks up the tie up and does the heavy breath to throw Edge of his game. Edge comes back with a clothesline but Goldust ducks. Edge turns and gets a rake of the eye. Edge turns and falls into the corner. Goldust slowly, arrogantly makes his way towards the corner but Edge knocks him down with a forearm smash. Edge makes a quick tag to Kane. Kane enters the ring as Goldust makes his way to his feet. Goldust's eyes widen as he stares at the monstrous attack which awaits him. Goldust quickly falls back into the corner and tags Booker T in. Booker reluctantly enters the ring. Booker runs at Kane and receives a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Kane lifts Booker up by the throat and gets a kick to the side of the head. Booker backs off into the ropes and comes back with a leaping side kick and connects with Kane. Kane goes down to the mat with his hands on his head. Kane slowly climbs onto his feet, Booker goes for the Axe Kick but Kane evades via standing up straight. Booker turns to Kane and his almost beheaded via a monstrous clothesline from the Big Red Machine! Kane goes up top as Booker climbs to his feet. Kane leaps off with a flying clothesline, and connects with the multi-time WCW Champion! Booker rolls around the mat clutching his throat as Kane tags in Rob Van Dam. Van Dam rushes into the ring and takes Booker down with a flying spin kick. Goldust quickly enters the ring and gets his feet swept from beneath him by the &quot;Whole Damn Show&quot;. Regal drops to the outside to avoid any altercation with Van Dam in a rather sneaky fashion. Van Dam turns around and receives a clothesline from Booker. Booker taunts Van Dam, but the taunting is cut short as Edge and Kane enter the action. Edge spins Booker around and begins to hammer away on him. Booker falls against the ropes and gets clotheslined over the top via Edge. Meanwhile, Kane takes Goldust to the outside, and the two brawl with Kane clearly getting the upper hand. Back in the ring Edge has found himself with William Regal. Edge misses with a forearm smash and decks the referee! Edge puts his hands on his head and turns, Regal has the Brass Knucks on and floors Edge with the <b>Power of the Punch!</b> Regal looks and notices the referee is down. He shakes his head and turns around, receiving a flying kick from Rob Van Dam! Regal rolls to the outside as Booker T re-enters. Booker goes for a toe kick but Van Dam catches, steps over and floors Booker with a spinning kick! With Booker down, <b>Van Dam goes up top and does the thumb taunts before quickly springing off with the Five Star Frog Splash! He connects with Booker!</b> Van Dam bounces off Booker awkwardly and rolls around the ring clutching his mid-section for a few moments before making the cover as Kane and Edge block all attempts of Regal and Goldust to re-enter the ring on the outside. Senior official Earl Hebnar counts; ...1...2....3! Rob Van Dam, Edge and Kane have done it.&nbsp; They have defeated Booker T, Goldust and the Intercontinental Champion William Regal in an impressive encounter.</p><p align="left"><b>WINNERS: Rob Van Dam, Kane &amp; Edge<br>OR: 78</b></p><p align="left">The faces celebrate in the ring while Booker, Goldust and Regal retreat up the ramp bad-mouthing the victors.</p><p align="left"><b>JR: </b><font color="#800000"><i>&quot;An impressive victory their for RVD, Kane and Edge.&quot;</i></font></p><p align="left"><b>The King: </b><font color="#800000"><i>&quot;They got lucky JR.

Triple H walks out onto the ramp with a microphone in hand. Triple H walks down to the ring in his wrestling gear, there's no time for the usual entrance though as &quot;The Game&quot; climbs straight into the ring with the fans chanting his name heavily.

Hell Chris, I saw your ego get in the way of someone who could be a big star.. But then..

Spike his one half of the Tag Team champions with Tazz, the man who accompanied him to the ring. Spike can't keep on top of the offence. Bubba hits the runt of the Dudley litter with a scoop slam. Bubba drags Spike towards the ropes and goes up top. He leaps off with a senton splash, but lands on his back as Spike moves out of the way.

Angle shakes his head while clutching his gold medals as Stephanie McMahon makes her way out from the back and takes her place along with Kurt. Remember, Stephanie promised to make Triple H's life a living hell after been ditched at the alter via The Game. Anyway, the match up starts with a tie up but the tie up his soon broken and the brawling ensues. Triple H knocks Angle into the corner and begins to choke him, but the referee orders for a break and gets what he wished for. Triple H misses with a poorly-timed short-arm clothesline and ends up paying for it as Angle drills him with a Release German Suplex. Stephanie applauds Angle on the outside as he pulls Triple H back up and hits him with another German, but this time Angle goes for the bridge cover but Triple H kicks out on two. Angle locks Triple H in a headlock but The Game powers out of it and sends Angle into the ropes. Angle runs back at Triple H, who is doubled over, and kicks him in the face. Triple H falls back clutching his face. He comes off the ropes and wonders into a belly to back slam from Angle. Angle has firm control of this contest, well, he does until Triple H comes out of nowhere and plants him with a quick DDT. Triple H slumps his arm over Angle for the cover attempt, but Angle kicks out on two; there was never any real danger of the pinfall victory there. Triple H lifts Angle up and sets him up for a Pedigree, but Angle counters with a massive back body drop which sends Triple H crashing down to the mat. Triple H gets up and staggers towards Angle and receives a toe kick to the gut. Triple H doubles over and Angle manoeuvres behind him, setting him up for the Angle Slam but it's not to be as Triple H drops down behind the Olympic Hero. Triple H pushes Angle into the ropes and on the return he leaps into the air, hitting Angle with an high knee to the face to a loud pop from the fans. Angle gets up with his hands on his face as Stephanie pounds the apron in frustration. Triple H takes Angle down with a quick clothesline as Stephanie climbs up onto the apron. Triple H points at Stephanie and warns her off. He walks towards her and grabs her via the hair, he's about to pull her into the ring but Angle sneaks up behind The Game and hits him with a low blow! A blatant low blow from the Olympic Gold Medallist! Angle climbs to his feet and grabs Triple H from behind and slams him down hard with the <b>Angle Slam!</b> Angle covers The Game as Stephanie applauds him with a delighted look on her face, she's loving every minute of this; ...1...2..., no!

Good show, though maybe I should point out that Kurt Angle won the #1 contendership to the Undisputed title at No Way Out and HHH won it back the following night. So, since that didn't technically happen here, it's Angle vs. Jericho rather than HHH vs. Jericho.

But anyway, I liked the show. Very reminiscent of WWF circa March '02 (push Mr. Perfect!), and keeping the nWo on a roll without making it cartoony like WWF did is good.

This is pretty good. Asides from what GoGo mentioned, I can't think of any outstanding flaws off the top of my head. You really did your research, and I'm looking for to WMX-8 and such :)

By far one of the best WWF diaries I read...this month. Hell after the first RAW, you just hooked me mister. I like your promo writing, especially the segment with the nWo pissing the crowd about them having more reaction than...the 's' word.

You have made your background of the scenario very detailed and very acurate as the others said. I cant wait to see your next show. Its Heat isnt it? Or your gonna skip ahead and put on RAW instead?

First problem I've found (Thank god, this was getting too perfect).

Destroying Funaki doesn't really do much for the nWo. Hell, everybody destroys Funaki (Lesnar, Austin, Kane......). It just screamed Filler to me, and then Rocky and SCSA running out and getting revenge seemed a bit predictable.

Meh.

I'm glad you took the titles off Spike and Tazz though. Are you doing Heat and Jakked?

Thanks for the feedback once more. :)

Nash's match with Funaki was indeed a filler, and a way to introduce an nWo member to the WWF ring and I didn't really want to send a "established" star to jobberdom, so I decided to let Funaki take the honours due to him being, well, the WWF's resident jobber at the time.

I won't be writing Jakked, but I will be writing Heat. I'm not writing both Jakked and Heat because I feel that I can fit enough in in one "B" show rather than two, which would simply consume more of my time which could be used for planning etc.

Heat will be up shortly.

Again, thanks for the feedback and as always it's appreciated.

So far this is going pretty well, a good introduction, then some solid shows. The only real flaw that I saw, was that during Smackdown, in the Tag title match, it seemed as though you had Bubba and D-Von in the opposite places for the 3D. I liked the nWo angle to an extent at the time, but it got very bland and bad as time went on and I begged for it to end. Here's to you doing a better job with it than what the WWE did at the time.

Now that is HEAT! But I do beg to differ after seeing heat. Shawn Stasiak seems to be the jobber at that time. Cause before the draft I often see his ass getting kicked in Saturday Superstars by Bossman, Tommy Dreamer, Perry Saturn and some other names I forgot. Poor Shawn, now Raven is picking on him. NOW THATS JUST CRAZIAK!

Definitely loving this diary so far. This was really the period when I began to enjoy the WWE's storylines, having only become a serious "I watch this more than any other wrestling" fan during the InVasion angle. Apart from the other 2002 storylines, the nWo thing definitely brought a tear to my WCW-fanboy eye, although for all the wrong reasons. Let's hope you can continue to make me cry tears of joy, and send angry hate mail to Vince McMahon demanding "WHY COULDN'T YOU DO IT LIKE THAT, OLD MAN?"

RK!

Nice job. I've thought about doing an WWF nWo-era game/diary, but could never really come up with any decent ideas. You, on the other hand, are doing a great job. I'm looking forward to seeing where you go with this diary, particularly the nWo situation. I'm also enjoying the HHH/Jericho stuff and the Taker/Flair stuff, so keep up the good work.

Angle takes Edge down with a snap suplex and continues the assault with a series of mounted punches. Angle pulls Edge up and sets him up for a German, applying the waste-lock but Edge counters with a series of elbows. Edge runs and then disposes of Angle with a clothesline; knocking him over the top rope and out of the ring. Angle eventually re-enters and the match continues. Edge tries to out-wrestle Angle but it quite clearly doesn't work. Angle takes Edge down with a German Suplex and goes for the cover, but Edge kicks out on two. The match up continues with Angle in control until he finds himself the victim of a quick Edge-O-Matic from the King of the Ring 2001 winner. Edge covers Angle, but the Olympic Hero also kicks out on two. Edge climbs to his feet and backs off into the corner, waiting for Angle to climb to his feet.

Raven gets up looking angry, he pushes DDP and then quickly kicks him in the gut. DDP doubles over and Raven goes for a DDT, but DDP pushes him away into the ropes. On the rebound DDP caught Raven with a big powerslam, which got a two count. Tags were exchanged back and forth and the match up continued. In the ring at this time were Rob Van Dam and Raven, the two former Extreme Championship Wrestling superstars. Van Dam used his high-flying advantage to dominate Raven, going up onto the top rope and using the turnbuckle as a launch pad of sorts, leaping off with a Martial Arts Kick square to the jaw of Raven. Van Dam proceeded to do the thumb taunts but Booker T entered the ring and levelled the &quot;Whole Damn Show&quot; from behind with a forearm smash to the back. And from that point onwards, all hell broke loose. DDP entered the ring and hit Booker in the gut with a toe kick. DDP then set Booker up for a Powerbomb but couldn't quite lift him. DDP released Booker and ended up paying for it having been hit with a side-kick to the face. With DDP down RVD returned to his feet and took Booker down with a spinning kick to the jaw. Rob did the thumbs as Raven re-entered the fray. Booker exited as Van Dam and Raven exchanged blows. Raven countered a kick and hit Van Dam with a kick to the mid-section of his own. Raven set Van Dam up for the Raven Effect, the same move which he used to defeat Shawn Stasiak on Heat, but it wasn't to be as Van Dam countered with a massive Northern Lights Suplex. Van Dam opted out of the bridge and went towards the ropes instead. Van Dam did a few flips and came crashing down on Raven with a rolling thunder in the centre of the ring! <b>Van Dam decided that enough was enough and went up top, did the thumb taunts and prepared to go for the Frog Splash but Booker T hopped onto the apron with a steel chair in hand.

Raven kicked Page in the gut and flattened the European Champion with the Raven Effect. Van Dam climbed to his feet, doubling over clutching his mid-section. Booker came off the ropes and scored with the Axe Kick.

Austin returned to his feet, obviously not in the mood to mess around due to his problems with the New World Order. Austin pulled Test up and kicked him in the gut, he then looked for the Stunner but Test pushed Austin into the ropes. On the rebound the Texas Rattlesnake ate a <b>Big Boot</b> to the face! The fans booed in shock as Test covered the Rattlesnake, this could be a huge upset; ..1...2., Austin kicks out. Test couldn't believe it. The man with Immunity, due to him winning the Immunity Battle Royal at Survivor Series 2001 &quot;Winner Takes All&quot;, returned to his feet and began to argue with the referee. Test proceeded to shove Jimmy Korderas down to the mat. Test turned and was kicked in the mid-section via Austin, whom miraculously recovered. The 'Bionic Redneck' then proceeded to finish Test off with a <b>Stone Cold Stunner</b>. Austin covered Test and the referee, who unusually didn't sell the push, made the academic three count.</p><p align="left"><b>WINNER: Steve Austin<br>OR: 75</b></p><p align="left">Austin didn't celebrate, instead he was cut off via the infamous black and white lighting effects and the music of the New World Order. Austin waited for a few seconds but nobody emerged from the back, nor did they try to sneak attack Austin. The effects and music stopped as the arena returned to the norm. Austin then stormed to the back, presumably in search of the New World Order.</p><p align="left"><u><font color="#FF0000"><b>Completing The Game<br></b></font></u>We immediately cut backstage to the parking lot of the arena, to where we saw <b>Triple H</b> wondering around in search of something. Surprisingly, this is &quot;The Game's&quot; first appearance on tonight's show. Triple H leaned over and picked his gym bag up before swinging it over his shoulder. Triple H slowly walked across the parking lot, in search of his limousine but things were cut short when a Limousine shot across the parking lot - into the direction of Triple H. The Game quickly leaped out of the way, onto the hood of another limousine as the limousine shot into the distance. Triple H got up and looked around warily; who tried to run him over? <b>(87)</b></p><p align="left"><b>JR: </b><font color="#800000"><i>&quot;What the hell?!&quot;</i></font></p><p align="left"><b>The King: </b><font color="#800000"><i>&quot;Someone just tried to run Triple H over!&quot;</i></font></p><p align="left"><b>JR: </b><font color="#800000"><i>&quot;Oh my gawd, Triple H was lucky he saw it in time - and if he didn't, well, we'd be saying somethin' very different.&quot;</i></font></p><p align="left"><b>The King: </b><font color="#800000"><i>&quot;I don't believe someone would try to run him over JR.

The Undertaker walks around the ring and takes a steel chair from ringside, having pushed the time-keeper off his seat. Taker enters the ring as his music cuts.

The Undertaker throws the chair back into the ring and goes under the ring apron. Undertaker retrieves what appears to be a trash can. The trash can is stuffed to the brim with foreign objects. Taker throws it into the ring and follows. A few minutes later and Show and Taker are brawling once more. Show takes control, knocking Taker down with a huge clothesline. Show picks up the trash can and empties it as Taker climbs up onto his knees. Show picks the trash can up and his about to bend it over Taker's skull but the Deadman retaliates with a low blow! Show drops the trash can and naturally doubles over in agony. Taker picks the trash can up and then levels Show with it! Show falls back into the corner as Taker climbs to his feet. Taker runs and levels Show with a turnbuckle clothesline. The Deadman then twists Show's arm around. he's going old school! No wait, he isn't. Show grabs Taker by the throat and squeezes.

I enjoyed Raw a lot, good write ups of your promos are a huge plus, especially The Rock & Hogan who you seemed to 'hit the nail on the head' with.

WOW! who would have thought Show was the guy to face Taker in the main event. Well...I was hoping it would have been Gillberg :angry: but then again that would be too foolish of me to think of it that way.

RAW was a very good show. I cant wait to see what happens to the Taker-Flair feud on SmackDown!

The fans greet Big Evil with a chorus of boo's, woo's and &quot;you suck&quot; chants. Taker ignores the fans and simply climbs through the ropes and into the ring as Cole dubs him as &quot;Satanic&quot;. Taker snatches the microphone off tonight's ring announcer Lillian Garcia, and scares her out of the ring. Taker stops in the centre of the ring as the music also comes to an holt. Taker raises the microphone to his mouth and begins to speak. </p><p align="left"><b>The Undertaker: </b><i>&quot;I bet'cha all wonderin' why I sent Ric Flair to hell las' night, right?&quot;</i></p><p align="left">The fans respond with unanimous jeers.</p><p align="left"><b>The Undertaker: </b><i>&quot;Ric Flair had it comin' to him.

Matt Hardy starts things off in the ring with Lance Storm. Matt and Storm lock up, with Storm taking control with a side headlock but he doesn't keep in control for too long as Matt shoves him into the ropes and on the return he connects with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Tags are exchanged and no real team takes the advantage throughout all of the match up. Jeff leaps over to the corner and reaches out, making the tag to Matt. Matt rushes into the ring like a house on fire and knocks Storm off the apron with a forearm to the face. Matt then turns to Storm and gets a kick to the mid-section. Storm sets Matt up for a DDT, but Matt lifts him up and runs towards the corner - driving him into the turnbuckle with a shoulder thrust. Matt steps back as Storm staggers forward. Matt kicks Storm in the gut and sets him up for the Twist of Fate, letting out a &quot;Ahhhhh&quot; while taunting. However, the move is not to be as Christian rushes into the ring and hits Matt in the back with a clubbing blow. Jeff climbs up top and leaps off with a front dropkick, connecting with Christian. At the other side of the ring Storm has complete control of Hardy, hitting him with a series of rights and lefts in the corner. Storm goes to irish whip Matt but it is reversed and Storm ends up crashing into the corner. Matt runs out and goes down on all fours. Jeff runs out from the corner and uses Matt's back as a vault, leaping up into the air and going for some Poetry and Motion but Storm gets out of the corner just in the nick of time. Jeff goes crashing awkwardly into the corner. Matt stood with his hands on his head, perhaps wasting a little too much time <b>which allowed Christian to grab the Hardy Boy from behind and finish him off with the</b> <b>Unprettier</b>! Storm, the legal man, then leaped on top of Hardy and hooked the leg to get the 1-2-3.</p><p align="left"><b>WINNERS: Christian &amp; Storm<br>OR: 81</b></p><p align="left">The fans boo in shock as the referee raises our victors hands up into the air. Storm and Christian stand above the fallen Dudley's looking both shocked but yet pleasantly surprised with their victory until they are suddenly struck down from behind. D-Von and Bubba Ray, the <b>Dudley Boys</b> are the culprits. Bubba reaches down and lifts Storm up before sending him into the ropes with an irish whip. On the return the Canadian Technician his flattened via a huge back body drop. The beating continues and we eventually see Christian receive a 3D from the Tag Team champions.

The fans actually pop loudly for the younger Flair, due to their hate of Taker and due to the fact that Flair is the underdog in this match up. Flair wears a black sleeveless t-shirt and a pair of blue cut jeans. He holds a Singapore Cane. He slides into the ring and then all of his fears hit him at once as the sound of The Undertaker's entrance music consumes the arena. The Undertaker makes his way out on his Harley Davidson motorcycle. Undertaker circles the ring twice before stopping, stopping the ignition and climbing off the motorcycle. Taker throws his Hardcore Championship uncaringly into the ring. Taker then walks around to the time keeper and takes a microphone before entering the ring. Taker steps up to David, who backs away.</p><p align="left"><b>The Undertaker: </b><i>&quot;I see you're afraid of me, eh Flair? You're afraid of The Undertaker.

David turns around and SMACK. Flair goes down like a tonne of bricks due to that big right from The Undertaker. Taker backs off against the ropes and on the return he comes off the ropes with a big leg drop, dropping his legs onto the throat of David. Taker gets up and lifts Flair up, before sending him over the top rope and out of the ring. Taker follows, goes under the ring apron and retrieves a trash can a long with a trash can lid and a series of weapons. Taker empties the can and waits for David to climb to his feet. David gets up on his knees, Taker walks towards him and -- LOW BLOW! Taker doubles over in agony, allowing David to climb up to his feet. <b>David then drops The Undertaker with a quick DDT</b>!</p><p align="left"><b>Cole: </b><font color="#000080"><i>&quot;YES!

Taker returns to his feet, David swiftly turns and goes to hit Undertaker with a right hand and connects! Taker no sells, he cracks his neck and proceeds to stare Flair down. Flair backs off into the apron and slides back into the ring. He runs towards the ropes in a panic as Taker advances towards the apron. Flair goes under with a baseball slide, but The Undertaker side steps! Flair turns and receives a series of rights and lefts from The Undertaker. Flair falls back into the apron. Taker steps back and goes for a big boot, but Flair gets out of the way and Taker hits the ropes. Taker turns around and Flair hits him with a kick to the gut. Flair runs towards Taker and gets grabbed via the throat. Oh no. Taker proceeds to throw Flair into the ring post, demonstrating his strength. David falls down to the mat awkwardly, he's obviously in pain. Taker eventually lifts Flair up and rolls him back into the ring and the beating continues. Taker takes the pad of the top buckle on the far right hand turnbuckle. He then lifts Flair up and runs towards the corner, going for the snake eyes and he connects! Flair helplessly falls back down to the mat, now busted open due to our sadistic Hardcore Champion. Flair falls back down to the mat in agony as blood rushes from his open forehead. The Undertaker goes to the outside and retrieves the trash can which he unearthed earlier on in the match. Taker throws the can into the ring and follows as David lays prone on the mat. The Undertaker reaches down and lifts Flair up. <b>Taker places Flair in between his legs and lifts him up high into the air before driving him down through the trash can with a huge Last Ride! </b>Holy shit, Flair's broken in half!

However, this angered The Undertaker who grabbed Flair via the hair. Undertaker kicked Flair in he gut, and the &quot;Golden Child&quot; doubled over. Taker then proceeded to throw Flair over the top rope and out of the ring. Taker follows Flair to the outside and immediately lifts him up. Taker then rams him head first into the ring post with some Snake Eyes! Oh my god, that's got to hurt. Taker walks around to ring side and takes a steel chair before returning to Flair, who slowly struggles to climb up to his feet. Taker lines Flair up and WHAM! What a chair shot to David Flair! Flair is bleeding profusely. Flair his out of it. Taker his quite evidently proud of his actions as he raises his arms high into the air with a look of satisfaction on his face.

Kane made the quick tag to Edge and the match continued. The match was pretty much back and forth all the way through until, like most WWF Tag Team Matches, all hell broke loose. Booker, Angle and Regal began to double-team Rob Van Dam in the corner, showing unity but the unity was broke when Edge and Kane raced into the ring and broke things up. Kane clotheslined Booker T over the top rope and followed him to the outside as Edge did the same simultaneously to Regal; leaving Angle and Rob Van Dam in the ring. Angle hoisted Van Dam up for the Angle Slam, but Rob dropped down behind Kurt and scored with a Victory Roll, but Angle kicked out on the two count. Angle returned to his feet and fell the victim to a spinning kick. Van Dam then went up top, did the thumb taunts and was about to leap off with a Five Star but Angle sprang to life and leaped up onto the top rope, before connecting with a huge Belly to Belly Suplex! Rob rolled to the outside as Edge re-entered the ring. Edge hit Angle with a Spear, taking him out of the equation. He was about to cover but Regal re-entered the ring. Regal ran towards Edge but suffered a drop toe hold, and Regal landed head first into Angle's groin!

They then turn to the New World Order who regroup on the outside, showing a sign of unity as SmackDown fades to a close.<b> (75)</b></p><hr color="#000000" size="1"><p align="left"><b>SHOW RATING: <font color="#0000FF">77</font><br>BEST SEGMENT: <font color="#0000FF">McMahon makes The Undertaker vs. David Flair</font><font color="#FF0000"> </font>(100)<font color="#FF0000"><br></font>WORST SEGMENT: <font color="#0000FF">The Undertaker d.
