    (August 24 - September 7: 8-Man Intercontinental Championship Tournament)

    First Round

    D’Lo Brown def. Val Venis

    Kenny Dykstra def. Paul Burchill

    Montel Vontavious Porter def. Primo

    Chris Masters def. Santino Marella

    Semifinals

    Chris Masters def. D'Lo Brown

    Kenny Dykstra def. Montel Vontavious Porter



    Breaking Point
    Raw
    September 13, 2009


    Legacy (Ted DiBiase Jr. and Manu) ©
    vs. The Hart Dynasty (Tyson Kidd and DH Smith) - The Hart Dynasty would get the hard fought win in Canada. - World Tag Team Championship

    Kenny Dykstra vs. Chris Masters - 8-Man Intercontinental Championship Tournament Final

    Paul Burchill vs. Montel Vontavious Porter

    Ezekiel Jackson (w/The Brian Kendrick) vs. Paul London - Ezekiel Jackson would debut and attack London after he’d just one an exhibition match. Moments later, a new look and new attitude, Brian Kendrick would make his way to the ring. He’d inform London that he brought this on himself by being selfish and moving on without him while he was on the shelf injured. He says they were always supposed to be a team and London betrayed him and he can never forgive him for that. Kendrick would nail his finisher on London to seal the message. London would go after his former partner, but could never get close enough, as Ezekiel Jackson kept him at bay. Now going by The Brian Kendrick would let London know from a distance that they’ll do things on his terms not London’s.

    Evan Bourne © vs. Carlito (w/Primo) - Intercontinental Championship

    Edge vs. Christian - Christian would go into his and Edge’s history from childhood all the way up to this point to try and give reasoning for his actions, stating he was always the other guy. Edge told Christian if this is how he’s always felt, he could’ve gone about it another way, like having the conversation their having now. Christian said he got caught up in the moment and just saw red. It would appear Edge was understanding and was about to forgive Christian when he speared him, looking down at his brother and telling him this was far from over.

    Randy Orton
    vs. Shane McMahon - Interim General Manager, Teddy Long, would call Orton down to the ring to talk about his actions this year, specifically him punting competitors in the head. Teddy was about to ban the move, when he was caught with an RKO. The next week, Vince McMahon would confront Orton letting him know his actions were reprehensible and that he had no choice but to suspend him indefinitely. Orton warned Vince not to do it, grabbing a fist full of his collar, trying to intimidate the Chairman. Vince didn’t back down and instead became enraged, trying to shove Orton away, demanding Orton take his hands off of him. Orton refused. This prompted Vince to begin to fire Orton when Orton slapped Vince to the mat. As Vince began to stir, Orton would punt the Chairman of the WWE in the head. Stephanie would rush out distraught and crying for help with for her dad. Orton just stood there with a dead cold stare. We’d find out later in the week that Shane McMahon was flying back to the US and was challenging Orton in a No DQ match. After beating Shane to a pulp, The Apex Predator would punt Shane in the head, just like he did his father and several beforehand. - No Disqualification match

    Batista © vs. Mark Henry - King of the Ring winner, William Regal, would forgo his automatic rematch for now, stating he had general manager duties to get back to. He would reclaim his job from Teddy Long, who wasn’t happy about this, by making a trip to Stanford. He’d give The World Strongest Man the rematch he never got after losing his championship to himself at the Rumble. Regal’s motive appears to have both men be weakened by them beating the hell out of each other, so he can pick the scraps of the survivor.Henry would win the standard match, with Batista winning the Street fight and Steel Cage match. - Three Stages of Hell match (Standard, Street Fight and Steel Cage) - WWE Championship

    (August 25 - September 29: 8-Man ECW Television Championship Tournament)

    First Round

    Kofi Kingston def. Hardcore Holly

    Trevor Murdoch def. Super Crazy

    Nick Nemeth def. Finlay

    Sheamus def. Matt Hardy

    Semifinals

    Kofi Kingston def. Nick Nemeth

    Sheamus def. Trevor Murdoch


    Hell In A Cell
    ECW
    October 4, 2009


    Sheamus vs. Kofi Kingston - ECW Television Championship Tournament Final

    Kizarny (w/Snitsky) vs. The Boogeyman - After months of the weird Kizary vignettes he’d finally debut and take an interest in Snitsky. He’d stalk him in the back and spectate during his matches before finally talking his crazy carny talk to him from the apron. He signaled for Snitsky to come with him, which he would, resulting in Snitsky losing via count-out. The Boogeyman became his next target, but the worm eater wouldn’t come easily as Snitsky and so he and his leader Kizarny would turn to physicality to bring him abroad. After taking down Boogeyman, with Snitsky’s assistance, Kizary would speak his carnie talk into Boogeyman’s ear, but he’d still resist. Kizarny and Snitsky would put the boots to Boogeyman and carry him out of the ring and to the back.

    Trevor Murdoch vs. Nick Nemeth - Nemeth and Murdoch are both trying to capitalize on the momentum they’ve been building since arriving in ECW and really start to climb the ranks around here. The two would butt heads and now it’s time to settle it in the ring. These two would brawl out on the outside for too long and get double counted out.

    Kane vs. Tommy Dreamer - Estrada sought to further punish Dreamer by pitting him against The Devil’s Favorite Demon.

    Jack Swagger (w/Tony Atlas) vs. Mike Knox - Estrada would try to attempt to recruit Mr. Money In The Bank, Jack Swagger away from Atlas and into The New ECW, stating he was very impressed by his potential and thought he’d be a fine new addition to the organization. Atlas was going to speak for his client, but Swagger would step up and speak for himself telling Estrada, Atlas was his manager and he declines the offer. Estrada was not happy being told no, thinking he could have anything he wanted around these parts. He told Swagger he and Atlas would rue the day they defied him.

    Ashley vs. Maria vs. Candice Michelle - Ashley and Candice's beef would continue from June and bring another woman into the mix. Candice would try to use Maria to support her against Ashley, but Maria being the smart and intelligent woman she’s known to be would see right through the deception and would make her own claim as to being ECW’s main bitch in town. The three would all shine in their own right, but all agreed their could only be one. And it would be decided at Hell In A Cell. Ashley pinned Candice.

    Elijah Burke © vs. Jamie Noble - Noble would win a controversial (no fault of his own) #1 contenders match against Tommy Dreamer to get the opportunity. It’s apparent Estrada abused his power over the referees here, getting his stable mate quote on quote easier opponent to defend against. Noble was on the up and up and made it clear he didn’t like The New ECW and how they did things and for Burke not to look down on him, because he was an angry pitbull who hasn’t eaten in weeks or whatever that was supposed to mean. Burke didn’t take Noble serious at all. - ECW Television Championship

    Cody Rhodes vs. Matt Hardy - Goldust would sit at commentary for this one, stating he just wanted to observe. Cody vowed to reclaim his ECW Championship and would use Matt Hardy as a tune-up for when he met CM Punk or whomever would be unfortunate enough to be keeping his championship warm when he came for it. Matt told Cody not to look past him because he came to ECW to make an impact and it may just be him that’s ECW Champion when that time comes.

    CM Punk © vs. Chuck Palumbo vs. Super Crazy - Wanting to destroy The Resistance from the inside out, General Manager Estrada would pit Punk against two of his Resistance members, snubbing Tommy Dreamer of course. Estrada’s attempts of mind games was something he said would surely begin to make cracks in The Resistance until they completely broke apart and all resistance to The New ECW would be vanquished for good. Punk, Palumbo and Super Crazy knew the tricks Estrada was playing and decided not to play his game. They decided this wouldn’t be personal and they’d all go into the match and put their best foot forward and at the end of the night, the championship would still be with The Resistance. The full New ECW would be ringside to watch this one. Things would get intense and emotional as it was clear each man really wanted to win. Palumbo would take out Super Crazy and after a big miss on Punk would fall to the GTS. Punk would retain with the pin on Palumbo. Post-match, the three Resistance members nodded at each other, as they looked down at the ECW Championship, signaling that’s what it was all about tonight. [One has to question how things will be going forward for the group.] - Hell In A Cell - ECW Championship


    Bragging Rights
    Raw/ECW/Smackdown
    October 25, 2009


    Mark Henry (Raw) vs. Kane (ECW) vs. The Big Show (Smackdown) - The World’s Strongest Man and The Devil’s Favorite Demon would hit a double vertical suplex on The World’s Largest Athlete, sending him crashing into the Spanish announce table. Kane would then Chokeslam Henry into another announce table before each man was counted out at ten. Kane didn’t care though, he just looked around at the carnage and gave a sinister laugh. - Interpromotional Big Man Battle

    Tiffany and Layla El (Raw) vs. Candice Michelle and Maria (ECW) vs. Gail Kim and Katie Lea Burchill (Smackdown) - Good team work all around here, even from Candice and Maria. Gail Kim would be the standout of this competition with her partner Katie holding her own as well. Gail would get the pinfall on Candice. - Interpromotional Diva’s Tag Team match

    The Hart Dynasty (Tyson Kidd and DH Smith) (c) (Raw) vs. The New ECW (Colin Delaney and Bam Neely) (c) (ECW) vs. La Familia (Shad and JTG) (c) (Smackdown) - La Familia would work with The New ECW to take out The Hart Dynasty before taking out Neely, leaving Delaney to fend for himself. They’d hit G9 on Delaney as JTG got the pinfall. - Non-title - 6-Man Tag Team match for Bragging Rights Trophy

    Nikki Bella © (w/Brie Bella) (Raw) vs. Ashley (ECW) vs. Michelle McCool (Smackdown) - McCool would get caught up in Twin Magic, getting yanked from the ring. Meanwhile, Brie would forget about Ashley, who would hit her finisher on Brie for the pinfall. [The legal Bella wasn’t officially pinned.] - Non-title Interpromotional Triple Threat match

    Evan Bourne © (Raw) vs. Elijah Burke © (ECW) vs. Ron Killings © (Smackdown) - Very good contest that would see Burke hit Killings’ own finisher on him before taunting. He’d take his eyes off Bourne long enough who’d drop him and hit Air Bourne on him for the pinfall. - Non-title Interpromotional Triple Threat match

    Batista © (Raw) vs. CM Punk © (ECW) vs. Jeff Hardy © (Smackdown) - So many close calls as anyone could’ve won this one. However, Batista would clean up a missed Swantom Bomb with a Batista Bomb before reversing a GTS into another Batista Bomb. The Animal would stack Punk and Jeff onto each other and pin them simultaneously. - Non-title Interpromotional Triple Threat match

    (August 28 - October 23: 8-Man United States Championship Tournament)

    First Round

    John Morrison def. Shelton Benjamin

    Gregory Helms def. Charlie Haas

    Low Ki def. Chavo Guerrero

    The Miz def. Jimmy Wang Yang

    Semifinals

    Low Ki def. Gregory Helms

    The Miz def. John Morrison - Miz put his feet on the middle ropes for a leverage pin. The ref missed it.


    Survivor Series
    Raw/ECW/Smackdown
    November 22, 2009


    The Miz def. Low Ki - Low Ki would work Miz over here, only to be cheated at the end with a low blow, as Miz saw the writing on the wall that Low Ki had his number. The ref missed this of course as the Miz would move on as #1 contender for the US Championship. - 8-Man United States Championship Tournament Final

    The Hart Dynasty (Tyson Kidd and DH Smith) © vs. Legacy (Ted DiBiase Jr. and Manu)- The rivalry between these two teams would continue as Orton would tell his guys failure was not acceptable tonight and that their positions in Legacy were not safe. DiBiase and Manu would come out with more intensity, besting the champs whenever they’d start gaining momentum on their side. DiBiase Jr. put Kidd through a table in the ring. And Manu would send DH flying over the ropes and through a table outside the ring. Legacy would reclaim their gold. - Tables match (Members of both teams would have to be put through a table.) - World Tag Team Championship

    Raw (Evan Bourne, Montel Vontavious Porter, Chris Masters, Carlito and Kenny Dykstra) vs. ECW (Elijah Burke, Trevor Murdoch, Nick Nemeth, Kofi Kingston and Sheamus) vs. Smackdown (Ron Killings, John Morrison, Gregory Helms, Jimmy Wang Yang and Chavo Guerrero) - Carlito and Masters would link to form their own union, as they weren’t that interested in team work with their other teammates. The Smackdown team worked in tandem, with Helms and Killings ever putting together their differences for the goal at hand. However, the ECW’s unit teamwork was the best here, as Murdoch and Nemeth seemed to feed off each others' competitiveness, along with Kofi and Sheamus putting on a heck of a performance. It would come down to Bourne and Dykstra for Raw, Murdoch, Nemeth and Sheamus for ECW and Killings, Morrison and Helms for Smackdown. Bourne would eliminate Helms. Murdoch and Nemeth would hit a combination on Morrison to eliminate him. Killings would eliminate Dykstra. Sheamus would eliminate Bourne and Killings as Murdoch, Nemeth and Sheamus would survive for ECW. - 5 v 5 v 5 Survivor Series elimination match

    Raw (Nikki Bella, Alicia Fox, Tiffany, Layla El and Maryse) (w/Brie Bella) vs. ECW (Ashley, Candice Michelle, Jillian Hall, Kelly Kelly and Maria) vs.Smackdown (Michelle McCool, Beth Phoenix, Gail Kim (Melina), Victoria and Mickie James) Melina would attack Gail Kim as she was coming out for the match, causing her to be helped to the back and replaced by none other than Melina. - The Smackdown faces were not happy about the way Melina took out Gail Kim before the match to take her spot. And they’d respond by giving her the cold shoulder. For Raw, the champ didn’t want to get her hands dirty and spent most of her time outside the ring with Brie, until she’d tag herself in to put the finishing touches on a teammates hard work. ECW fed off of Ashley’s energy as she got the best out of her team and had them following her lead--even rivals Candice and Maria. It would come down to Ashley and Kelly Kelly for ECW, Nikki, Alicia and Maryse for Raw and the entire Smackdown team, minus Melina, who was fed to the slaughter by her team early on. Nikki would eliminate Kelly Kelly after Maryse did the dirty work. Maryse and the champ would have words about it. Beth, Victoria and Mickie would team up on Nikki before Beth pinned her. Alicia would look impressive, eliminating Mickie James before being eliminated by Victoria. Victoria would also eliminate Maryse. Ashley would hold her own against Team Smackdown, eliminating Victoria. Beth would be in the process of finishing Ashley off until she was attacked from behind by the champ. McCool would not be outshined on her own team she claimed. As McCool took her eyes off the ball. Ashley would eliminate her with a roll-up. It came down to Beth versus Ashley again and after Ashley gave it her all, Beth would still prove too much to handle as she’d eliminate Ashley and get the win for Smackdown. - 5 v 5 v 5 Survivor Series elimination match

    La Familia (Shad and JTG) © (w/Vickie Guerrero) vs. Jesse and Festus - Jesse told Festus that he should start the match and wear down Shad and JTG and if he gets into any trouble to make the one tag they had so he could come in and do his best to finish off the champs. Festus would come in and kick ass and take names. He frustrated the champs as he worked them over. Vickie would interfere to break Festus’ momentum, allowing the champs to pick him apart. It would be several minutes before Festus could make a hottag to Jesse who came in on fire on the champs. However, as he was about to put JTG away, Shad would make the save. Jesse wouldn’t have any left in the tank for another run as La Familia would hit G9 to finish him off and retain. - WWE Tag Team Championship (Vickie imposed the stipulation that Jesse and Festus could only make one tag during the entire match.)

    Raw (Batista, Christian, Mr. Kennedy, Mark Henry and Edge) vs. ECW (CM Punk, Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger, Kane and Goldust) vs. Smackdown (Jeff Hardy, John Cena, The Undertaker, Rey Mysterio and The Big Show.) Jericho quit the team, stating he didn’t want to help The Undertaker. John Cena, Rey Mysterio or Jeff Hardy win a damn thing. Rey would take his place. Estrada made Swagger go through a Gauntlet match to qualify, where he defeated Mike Knox, Hardcore Holly and Matt Hardy. Estrada told Matt if he kept Swagger off the Survivor Series team, he’d make it worth his while. Edge and Christian personal battle would swell here as they would battle it out up the ramp to not return. Cody had his eyes on Punk and his brother, as he worked in the ring, sending a message to both of them. The Smackdown team worked as a cohesive unit for the most part, as Big Show did his own thing. It would come down to Batista, Mr. Kennedy and Henry for Raw. Punk, Rhodes and Swagger for ECW. And Jeff, Cena and Taker for Smackdown. Kennedy had just eliminated Kane. Swagger would eliminate Henry. Punk eliminated Taker. Kennedy eliminated Cena. Cody eliminated Kennedy. Batista eliminated Swagger and Jeff eliminated Cody, leaving Batista, Punk and Jeff. Punk and Jeff worked together as to not suffer the same result as Bragging Rights and would both hit their finishers on The Animal, as Punk got the pin. It then it was Punk versus Jeff. After some good back and forth, with both men laying it all out, we’d be cheated as Jericho would show up to give Jeff a Codebreaker, as Punk was out of it. When Punk came to, he was confused as to why Jeff was down, as Jericho had made his way to the back already. Punk would reluctantly make the cover and seal the win for ECW. - 5 v 5 v 5 Survivor Series elimination match

    Randy Orton vs. Shane and Vince McMahon (w/Stephanie McMahon) - Vince and Shane would make their returns to Raw two weeks before Survivor Series. Vince said he could do what he intended to do two months ago and fire Randy Orton, but that would be too easy. He says he and Shane have decided to give Orton the beating of his life, the McMahon Family way. Orton told the McMahon’s he looks forward to destroying his family piece by piece and he promises to make due on his word. Stephanie pleaded with her father, not to compete against Orton and was about to suggest he ask her husband for assistance, but Vince balked. Vince stated his mind was made up and those with the McMahon name would handle McMahon family business. Shane backed up his dad. Vince and Shane would get the better of Orton to begin the contest and Vince pulled out cuffs and tried to cuff Orton to the cage, but Orton fought him and Shane off. Orton would drop Vince before Shane unloaded a flurry of punches on Orton, before Orton ended his hope with an RKO. Orton dragged Shane to the cage wall and cuffed him and systematically picked him apart, forcing Vince to watch. Shane began to bleed as Vince pleaded Orton to stop. Orton grabbed Vince and brought him close to his ever weakening son, squeezing the top of Vince’s head and chin to force him to look at what he caused. Orton would rub Vince’s hands on Shane’s busted open head, yelling that Shane blood was on Vince hands. Vince continued to beg Orton to stop, but The Apex Predator would do no such thing. After deciding he was done with Shane, Orton turned his attention to Vince again and decided to kick his head off his shoulders like he did two months ago. But the screeching plea from Stephanie on the outside was too much to ignore. Orton would slowly walk to the cage door and smash his face up against the steel, starring dead into Stephanie eyes. Orton’s cold stare frightened Stephanie to silence. Moments later, the tag champs, DiBiase Jr. and Manu would come down to the ring with bolt cutters. DiBiase would cut the lock as Manu knocked out the ref who tried to stop them. Orton told them to bring her in. They dragged a screaming Stephanie in the cage, as Orton dragged her by her hair to look at her father and brothers demise. Orton would bring Stephanie’s face uncomfortably close and stare at her for several moments before laying a kiss on her. And in an instant dropped her with an RKO. Orton would forgo punting Vince and pinned him to end things. The McMahon family had been laid waste by Orton. Legacy would stand tall in the ring and Orton looked as cold and malice as ever. - 2-on-1 Handicap Steel Cage match

    Re: WWE 2008 Tri-Brand War

    Post Survivor Series News

    The Randy Orton versus The McMahon's angle has progressed to where Triple He's involvement would only be natural. However, with Triple H just turning heel early this year, it's not believed the WWE wants to rush another turn for him. His involvement in the angle is still being worked out.

    Mark Henry suffered an arm injury at Survivor Series and is expected to miss months of action. There's no specific timetable for his return.

    Teddy Long has been reassigned the position of Smackdown's Assistant General Manager.

    Re: WWE 2008 Tri-Brand War

    TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs
    Smackdown
    December 13, 2009


    John Morrison vs. Shelton Benjamin - An old rivalry renewed. Benjamin was upset Morrison knocked him out of the US Championship Tournament. JMo told Benjamin he should’ve just been better. The Gold Standard told The Prince of Parkuor, not to think he’s coming over to Smackdown and stepping over his rise to stardom. Benjamin said it was his time now, not Morrison’s. - Match One of Best of Seven Series

    Gregory Helms vs. Low Ki - In a backstage segment, Helms would yet again complain about how someone was getting shine that should be his, This time, the culprit was Low Ki. Helms says Low Ki has been kicking people’s heads off and thinks he’s got the best kicks around. [Low Ki never gave any indication of this.] Helms says he’s known to have a pretty darn good kick his damn self. He says he’ll show the world he’s the one to be awe inspired by, not some Low Ki. He challenges Low Ki to a match at TLC. Good match here. Helms tried to put Low Ki away with the shining wizard, but coudln't get it done. Low Ki would light Helms up with a kicking, stomping bonanza before putting him away with Warrior's Way for the pinfall.

    Michelle McCool © vs. Beth Phoenix - Beth would get the opportunity for securing the win for the Smackdown women at Survivor Series. McCool had been bragging about being the longest reigning Women’s Champion ever and that she was going into 2010 still champion. Beth told McCool, her time was ticking and that the championship was coming back to her at TLC. McCool told Beth she just beat her like yesterday and that she had no reason to be confident. She said she had every right to be confident and that she could beat Beth in any kind of match. Beth suggested a tables match. McCool agreed but then quickly regretted it and tried to take it back. Beth played to McCool’s ego asking her if the most dominant Women’s Champion was afraid of someone she’d beaten already. McCool told Beth she was going to put her through a table and that would be the last time Beth ever got a shot at her championship again. Vickie would make the match official. Beth would put McCool through a table with the Glam Slam. - Tables match - Women’s Championship

    Bryan Danielson vs. Chavo Guerrero (w/La Familia) - Vickie sought to add to her family again, starting she the family needed it’s next big time player. Someone who could be world champion. Someone who could be the love of her life. La Familia would go searching through the arena, as Vickie was talking about finding the right one, someone with potential for the family to Chavo, Shad and JTG. Bryan Danielson would overhear and stated he was the guy. He cleared up not the guy to join her family, but the guy with potential who just needed an opportunity. Vickie got pissed, asking Bryan who did he think he was to turn down such as offer, calling him a nobody. She made an exhibition match on Smackdown of Bryan versus Chavo. If Bryan lost, he’d be fired. Bryan would go on to not only defeat Chavo, but tap him out to the LeBell Lock. Humiliated, Chavo would ask for Vickie’s forgiveness and a chance to make it up to her. She says not just her, the family as well. The tag champs looking not too impressed with Chavo. Vickie says her patience with Chavo is running thin and that he needs to start pulling his weight. She said she’s give him the opportunity to make it up to the family, but this was his last chance. Vickie said either Bryan taps or Chavo taps. In other words, it’s either Bryan’s job or Chavo’s place in the family. Chavo had a distressed look upon his face. Bryan would get the best of Chavo yet again, putting him away with the LeBell Lock. La Familia would walk away from the ring, leaving Chavo sitting in it all alone with his hands on his face. - Submission match.

    John Cena vs. The Big Show - This old rivalry would renew. Cena would call Show out about him wanting to knock out everybody on Smackdown. He says if Show had that type of fight at Survivor Series, may they would’ve won, but instead Show blew his load too soon and that was that. Show told Cena he still had a big mouth and that he hated his guts in years past and still does. Show says he doesn’t have words do much talking for him these days, but instead his fists, as he shows Cena the gigantic fist that’s wreaked havoc for the last several months. Cena told Show if he wants some, he knows he can get it. Cena would block a KO punch with a chair, before lifting The World's Largest Athlete over his shoulders for an AA and pinfall. - Chairs match

    Ron Killings © vs. The Miz - The Miz told Killings he had a nice little Cinderella story going, winning the US Championship when no one, probably not even himself, expected him to. He told Killings to be proud of that and pat himself on the back, but also prepare for the feel good story to come to an end. He says now that he has arrived as the biggest star in the WWE, he’ll be taking the championship and getting just a little closer to Mount Rushmore of the WWE. Killings told Miz to slow his role and that he had a long way to go. He says he didn’t get this far just to get this far. He told Miz to bring his A-game, because folks that step in the ring with him, trying to take his championship away tend to get got. However, on the go-home show, it was Killings that got, got after an exhibition match, as Miz would flatten him with a ladder. Miz would place the ladder on top the champ, pinning him, before climbing up to the top of the ladder with the US Championship in hand. Miz would raise it high in the air as if he’d already won it. - Ladder match - United States Championship

    The Undertaker vs. Chris Jericho - Taker would have renewed beef with Jericho for costing Smackdown a win at Survivor Series. Jericho’s attack on the champ, Jeff Hardy, not only cost Smackdown the match, but also the chance at being the last pick in the rumble and getting the #1 overall pick in next year’s draft. Jericho said he didn’t give a damn, stating he had his own motivations and he prioritized his wants over Smackdowns any damn day. Taker told Jericho when he goes around screwing things up for where his yard is, he’s asking for more trouble than his mouth can chew. Taker tells Jericho he’s beaten him twice in his yard already this year, how about he make it three. And this time, how about he put Jericho’s sorry ass in a casket. Jericho refuses to the terms and tells Taker he doesn’t make the damn rules and says he has all the leverage. He tells Taker if he wants him, it will be by his terms. Jericho would go to Vickie Guerrero’s office asking if she’d make his match with Taker a no disqualification match. Vickie granted Jericho’s request as long as she did her a favor in the future. Jericho said consider it done. Teddy looked on at Jericho, as if wondering what Jericho was up to. Jericho would get in Teddy’s face and tell him not to stare at him like that. Jericho tells Teddy he knows he wants to get involved in his business but he can’t because he’s just an assistant--a secretary. Jericho laughs and walks off. We'd find out why Jericho wanted the no dq match, because when he'd exhausted all of his ideas to put The Deadman away, he'd receive help from The Moscow Mauler, Kozlov, who'd enter the fray and drop Taker with the Iron Curtain. Jericho would take his time, enjoying the moment before pinning Taker. Having Kozlov come to his aid appeared to be his grand idea all along. - No Disqualification match

    Jeff Hardy © vs. Rey Mysterio - Rey would become the #1 contender. Jeff and Rey both agreed it would be a hell of a match between them, but adding tables, ladders and chairs definitely changes the dynamic of the match. The champ told Rey he knows how good he is, but in a hardcore style match, he was entering a world that gave him the advantage. Rey told Jeff that, that may be true, but when it comes to having the opportunity to win the World Championship again, that’s the only advantage he needs. Jeff and Rey kept it friendly and shook hands on it as they prepared to meet up at TLC. A hell of a match between these two. However, it was the champ who'd hit the Twist of Fate on his challenger, before climbing to the top of the twenty foot ladder to follow-up with a Swantom Bomb on Mysterio for the pinfall and to retain.- Tables, Ladders and Chairs match - World Heavyweight Championship

    Royal Rumble
    Raw/ECW/Smackdown
    January 31, 2010


    Elijah Burke © (w/The New ECW - Colin Delaney and Bam Neely) vs. Sheamus - The Irish Curse would mow down opponent after opponent in exhibition matches with the champ, being able to do nothing but watch and witness what was in store for him. Burke spoke with his boss, Estrada about Sheamus possibly being a problem. Estrada ensured him, he’s no problem The New ECW cannot solve. Elijah felt reassured. Sheamus was put in a handicap match against Burke, Delaney and Neely on the go-home show to soften him up, but Sheamus would come out on top, looking as impressive as ever. The champ would escape the ring before his head was knocked off its block by a Brogue Kick. Sheamus stood at the ropes and told the champ he was coming for him and his championship at the Rumble. Burke was speechless for the first time ever as a look of great concern was upon his face. [Burke got in a few spurts of offense, but Sheamus quickly got the momentum. Delaney and Bam tried to get involved but Sheamus took the fight to them on the outside, putting them both out of commission. Realizing Burke was on his own now, he tried to run, but the big man is faster than he looks and caught Burkes and made him defend his championship like a man. It wasn’t long after until the champ was eating a Brogue Kick and Sheamus was the new ECW Television Champion after a pinfall.] - ECW Television Championship

    Ron Killings © vs. The Miz - Miz would go sweet talk Vickie about getting another opportunity at the US Championship. He informed her a little birdie told him La Familia was looking for someone full of potential to be the next big thing in the WWE. He said he checks all of the boxes and wants to know when his welcoming party will be. Vickie told Miz he’s impressed her some, but his loss to Killings at TLC leaves much to be desired. She told Miz she’ll give him another shot at Killings at the Rumble and if he can back up how good he claims to be and bring the US Championship to the table, perhaps La Familia’s table will have a spot for him. Killings said La Familia will have to keep looking for a new member of the family because after he and The Miz rumble for his championship Miz will once again come up short. [Miz would nearly live up to what he told Vickie as he gave the champ all he could handle here. The two would spend some time mixing it up on the outside, where steel steps, ring posts and announce tables made their introductions into things. Miz was unable to hit The Skull Crushing Finale however, as Killings would prevent it from ending his reign. Killings would retain after nailing a corkscrew scissors kick on The Awesome One.] - United States Championship

    Evan Bourne ©
    vs. Chris Masters (w/Carlito) - The Masterpiece and The Caribbean Bad Apple would continue their alliance, with Carlito telling his own brother Primo three's a crowd. Masters stated his first run in the WWE could’ve been better, but he’s back, new and improved and his rise to the top will start with him taking the Intercontinental Championship from Raw’s runt, Evan Bourne. Carlito says he and Masters are the true gems on the roster and very soon everyone in the back and everyone watching week after week will have no choice but to agree. Masters says they know it now, but are in denial. They say everyone wants to cheer for flash in the pan Evan Bourne, but his 15 minutes of fame are coming to an end at the Rumble because once he’s caught in the Master Lock, the dream is dead. Bourne says he doesn’t know about all of that, telling his challenger he’s not really a stationary kind of guy and that he loves to fly. He says maybe Masters has heard of Air Bourne and that his buddy Carlito can tell him all about it since it’s what he used to beat him for the Intercontinental Championship in the first place. This aggravated Carlito. Masters tried to get Bourne in the Master Lock on several attempts but failed each time. [During the match, Masters would finally ground Bourne and would lock in the Master Lock and had Bourne down to a knee as Carlito mocked him from ringside. However Primo would show up and not alone, he had Raw newcomer Eric Escobar with him. Carlito yelled what was he doing out there and asked who the hell Escobar was. Primo took Carlito’s legs from underneath him, causing Masters to be distracted, who went to check on things, thinking Bourne was out of it anyways. This would come to bite him as Bourne would catch him off guard dropping him to the mat before going up high for Air Bourne and retaining his championship.] - Intercontinental Championship

    CM Punk © vs. Cody Rhodes (w/Armando Estrada) vs. Jack Swagger (w/Tony Atlas) - Cody would finally get his shot at the championship again, becoming #1 contender. But Punk wouldn’t be facing just Cody at the Rumble as Atlas would inform the champion that he and his client has decided the time was right for him to cash-in his briefcase for his shot at the ECW Championship. He stated it was only a matter of time for Estrada screwed his client opportunity so they were cashing in now to prevent that from happening. Estrada and Cody were not happy about this. Punk told Swagger it takes balls to cash in his briefcase against two other opponents and that he respected that. He says he’s had his eyes on him and knows he’s good, but he’s got to be better than good to take what’s his. Cody told both of them that it doesn’t matter how good you are, it matters how much power you have and The New ECW has all of the power. He says all he needs is his coveted championship back and the tide of their show will finally wipe away The Resistance and any other party that wants to rise up against them. Estrada let Punk know that not only would he be defending his championship against the soon to be two-time ECW Champion and Jack Swagger, but if and when he loses, each Resistance member will give up their spots in the Rumble. Palumbo, Super Crazy and Dreamer supported Punk, letting him know not to worry about Estrada’s mind games and to focus on his big match. They tell him they’ve got his back no matter what. [The Resistance were banned from ringside. The match saw each man laying it all out against each other. Punk and Swagger would team up to take out Cody, to have one less opponent to deal with. Punk and Swagger had some good back and forth with Swagger showing off his impressive amateur wrestling background. The experience and the will of the champion would not be outclassed however, as Punk had something for everything Swagger dished out. Cody would re enter the fray and took out Punk before going one-on-one with Swagger. After some dirty tactics, Cody had control, but could only get the count of two pinfall covers. Punk would come back in and we’d get a big spot on the top turnbuckle between all three men, where they were all out on their backs for several moments. The finish came when Punk dropped Swagger with a GTS. Cody would then hit Punk with Cross Rhodes. Punk would get his foot on the ropes at the count of two, but Estrada shoved it off. The ECW Championship was back with The New ECW.] - ECW Championship

    Batista © vs. Mr. Kennedy - Kennedy would become #1 contender. The rise of Mr. Kennedy had earned him his second shot at the WWE Championship, after coming up short over a year ago. This time he’d meet The Animal, who was on a hot streak of his own. These two had some entertaining and intense back and forth on the mic, but acknowledged that the only thing that mattered was what happens in the ring at the Rumble. [The Animal power was on full display as he’d take it to Kennedy, but Kennedy would stick with what brought him to the dance, which offset Batista’s arsenal effectively enough to keep Kennedy in the game. It would take a Green Bay Plunge, the return of the Kentom Bomb, which Kennedy hit on the Animal, from the top turnbuckle as Batista lay on the Spanish announce table and the Mic Check to keep the Animal down long enough for the three count. Mr. Kennedy had done it, he was the new WWE Champion.] - WWE Championship

    Jeff Hardy © vs. Vladimir Kozlov (w/Chris Jericho) - Vladimir Kozlov become the new #1 contender with the help of Chris Jericho. Jericho had convinced The Moscow Mauler that Kozlov would realize his dream of becoming World Champion with his help. And that all he wants for Kozlov in return is for him to watch his back. Kozlov agreed without saying much. Meanwhile, Jericho now had an even angier Deadman on his back for costing him and Smackdown so much recently. But Jericho’s new best friend would be his shield, time and time again, preventing Taker from getting his hands on Jericho. Teddy suggested a tag match between Jeff/Taker and Jericho/Kozlov, but Vickie denied it, stating that she didn’t need or want Teddy’s input on running Smackdown and that when she wants something from him she’ll ask. Instead, she booked Jeff against Jericho and Kozlov in a handicap match on the go-home show. Taker would get involved in the match anyways, taking it to Kozlov as Jericho once again slithered away. [The Charismatic Enigma would use his speed and agility to keep out of Kozlov’s grasp. Jeff wouldn’t play it safe for long though as that just wouldn’t be Jeff Hardy. He’d take it right to Kozlov with a Whisper In The Wind and this is when the tide would turn as Kozlov countered it with a big powerbomb. Jericho shouted for Kozlov to keep on Jeff and to finish him off as The Moscow Mauler would ground and pound and grind Jeff down. The Deadman would show up by coming from under the ring, leaving Jericho wide-eyed and frozen in place. Taker would go after Jericho, sending The Sexy Beast scattering. Taker would stop in his tracks to slowly look into the ring before climbing up on the apron. He’d give Kozlov a menacing glare, causing The Moscow Mauler to walk away from Jeff and to come within two arms lengths of Taker. Moments later, Jeff would roll Kozlov up from behind at the same time Jericho snathed Taker’s legs from underneath him. Taker hit the apron face first before bouncing back into a Code Breaker. Jeff would just get three before Kozlov kicked out. Taker was out cold on the outside. Jeff got out of the ring quick as an angry Kozlov some more of the champ and with Jericho nearby, this was probably the smartest plan of action.] - World Heavyweight Championship

    Spoiler:

    Match highlights - London would finally get his hands on The Brian Kendrick as the two rolled around the ring scrapping as the #1 an #2 entrants in the rumble. Ezekiel Jackson would eliminate London, as Kendrick mocked him from the ring. Kofi Kingston had an incredible spot, walking on his hands several feet after being knocked out of the ring and getting back in the ring via the steel steps. Kofi would eventually be eliminated by The Great Khali. And was the 14th elimination. Christian would attack Edge as he was making his entrance, causing him to needing to be taken to the back. Christian had a big smirk on his face as he came down to the ring in Edge’s place. Low Ki and Bryan Danielson had some impressive feats in the ring, but neither got eliminations. They both were eliminated by The Great Khali. When a gang elimination was attempted on Khali, Kizary, Snitsky and The Boogeyman would come out to push Khali back into the ring from the apron. Fighting guys in the ring, before the ref sent them away from the match. John Morrison would have the longest match time at 27:22. Triple H was a surprise entrant as he hadn’t been heard of since his Ambulance match with Mr. Kennedy back at SummerSlam. He make a b-line to the ring and go right for The Apex Predator, who knew it was coming. The Game would tear Orton limb from limb until they both double eliminated each other.


    Spoiler:

    The final ten entrants were John Morrison, Nick Nemeth, Shelton Benjamin, John Cena, Christian, The Undertaker, Chris Jericho, Randy Orton, Triple H and CM Punk. The eleventh man to be eliminated was Trevor Murdoch, who’d just been sent packing by rival Nick Nemeth. Triple H and Orton would double eliminate each other. Benjamin would eliminate Morrison and spent too much time celebrating before he was eliminated by John Cena. Christian and Jericho teamed up on Taker before eliminating him. Christian quickly turned on Jericho and eliminated him from behind. Jericho called Christian a son of a bitch.


    Spoiler:

    The final four were Nick Nemeth, John Cena, Christian and CM Punk. Christian tried to get Nemeth to join him in attacking Cena, but Nemeth told him he saw how he handled Jericho and said he wanted no parts. This annoyed Christian who smacked Nemeth as he asked Nemeth if he knew who he was. Cena and Punk would go after them and all four men were battling it out. Nemeth was next to go as Punk sent him flying. Punk asked Cena if he wanted to get Christian out so they could go one-on-one. Cena said why not and after he turned his back, Punk sent him flying over the top rope. Cena asked what that was about, but Punk just starred back and said it’s not personal. Punk and Christian would battle it out, with several near eliminations. They both ended up on the apron, throwing hands before Christian attempted the Killswitch, but Punk would reverse it and put Christian on his shoulder for the GTS, sending him tumbling to the floor below. Punk re-entered the ring and dropped to his knees, in joy, as he was this year’s Royal Rumble winner.

    Post Royal Rumble News

    Batista has suffered a shoulder injury and may miss several months of action if surgery is needed.

    Mark Henry is recovering from surgery well and is expected to be back by July.

    The third stable that had been reported months back that the WWE wanted to add made it's appearance in last night rumble when Kizarny, Snitsky and The Boogeyman showed up assist The Great Khali. The Great Khali's involvement is yet to be determined.

    The WWE will be re-branding it's OVW developmental territory to NXT this coming April after WrestleMania XXVI.

    Re: WWE 2008 Tri-Brand War

    No Way Out
    Raw
    February 21, 2010


    D’Lo Brown vs. Vance Archer - Not much of a story to this one. D’Lo was looking to add wins and get back in the championship race all the while being the next target for newcomer Vance Archer. [D’Lo would mount a fair amount of offense on Archer, before Vance’s mean streak would kick in and he’d take over the match. He’d display the viciousness we’d all seen for several weeks as he decisively put D’Lo away.]

    Paul London vs. Ezekiel Jackson (w/The Brian Kendrick) - TBK would continue to run his mouth about London and had nothing good to say about him. Despite all the good times and success they shared. London told TBK he doesn’t believe this is the real him and that he’s just got some stuff to deal with. TBK informed London that this was all a game of chess and he was nothing more than a pawn. He says London was never the brains of their partnership and that there was no way he was going to figure out how to survive five minutes in the ring with a man such as Ezekiel Jackson. [London would fight and fight and fight some more. After warding off the behemoth of a man as long as he could, until TBK blindsided him and fed him to his enforcer, he’d simply survive Ezekiel’s beating starting near the four minute mark. London would go limp after being manhandled by Jackson’s torture rack. The ref would lift London’s arm for the third time just as the clock reached five minutes, he’d survive, infuriating TBK. Post-match, TBK would put the boots to London before locking in the cobra clutch with body scissors. This brought London back to life as he writhed in pain. The ref tried to break it up, but Ezekiel stood in his path. It took several refs to come out and get past Ezekiel to pry TBK off of his former partner.] - (London has to last 5 minutes against Ezekiel without getting pinned or submitted in order to get a singles match against The Brian Kendrick.)

    Nikki Bella © (w/Brie Bella) vs. Tiffany- The Bella’s Twin Magic had kept Nikki Bella champion for eight months and the Raw diva locker room were tired of it. Tiffany would rise up as the next contender, whom The Bella’s just didn’t like at all. They’d make life difficult for Tiffany whenever they got the chance, but Tiffany would always get back on her feet, asking for more. Nikki got frustrated that at Tiffany’s resolve. [Come match time, Tiffany would show that resolve and push Nikki until she had to resort to Twin Magic. Tiffany was well prepared however, sniffing it out and getting rid of Brie before bringing the proper Bella back into the ring. She’d finish Nikki off with a diving cross-body before pinning the champ and taking her championship.] - Diva’s Championship

    Carlito vs. Primo (w/Eric Escobar) - Carlito and his little brother’s differences would be settled in the ring. Primo said Carlito was choosing water over blood and that he was dead wrong. Carlito told Primo he’d been riding his coattails since he came to Raw and that he was sick of carrying his sorry ass. He says he’s always carried his ass and that he needed to face that fact that he’s just not as special as he is and should settle on being mediocre, away from him. Escobar told Carlito off in Spanish, how much of an asshole he was. He and Carlito got into a heated exchange. Carlito asked him who the hell he was to intervene in his family affairs and that he was probably another loser who had a brother who carried his ass all his life. Carlito tells Primo, after he gives him an asskicking of a lifetime and he and his butt buddy can get the hell out of his life. Primo tells Carlito, he’s his brother and will always love him, but he’s got an asskicking via the entire Colon family for his ass.[During the match, there was a lot of emotion and verbal back and forth going on. The ref would have to break it up often to get things in order. Primo would get momentum first, taking it to his older brother, who had to leave the ring for a breather. But Primo wouldn’t let up. Eventually, Carlito would take control and pick his little brother apart. Carlito would have words with Eric and the two would nearly meet eye to eye near the apron, but Primo would tell Eric before the match to let him handle it. Primo would fail to do so however, as Carlito would put him away with the Backstabber. Carlito would grab an apple from under the ring, post-match, and walked up on Eric who was checking on Primo. But before Carlito could spit it out, Eric caught wind and decked him a solid one. Carlito would roll out of the ring, holding his cheek, fuming at Escobar.]

    Legacy (Ted DiBiase Jr. and Manu) ©
    vs. The Hart Dynasty (Tyson Kidd and DH Smith) - A rivalry that began last July at Night of Champions.would finally be coming to an end. For the tag championships at least, as The Hart Dynasty would get one last chance to compete for the championship while Legacy held it. Kidd and DH said they’ve grown to respect Legacy, despite disliking their style. They said they’re two-time champions for a reason and that they’d have to bring their A+ game this one last time if they themselves were going to become two-time champions. Legacy said they’re the best tag team around and come from superior pedigrees than The Hart Dynasty. They joke saying they almost feel bad for THD about how they’re so desperate to win back the tag championship. They say their actually bored of them and want some new competition and that they’ll show them mercy and put them out of their misery just this one time. [THD would lay it all out on the line, with the champs doing the same. Kidd would put on a clinic, really opening eyes in this one, but after not being able to make a much needed tag to DH, who been knocked off the apron, he'd fall to DiBiase Jr., who got the pinfall. - Last Chance match - World Tag Team Championship

    Evan Bourne © vs. Chris Masters vs. Kenny Dykstra vs. Paul Burchill - The Masterpiece wanted another shot at the champ, stating he didn’t get a fair shake at The Rumble. Bourne didn’t have a problem with it, but asked Masters if he’d keep his buddy Carlito out of it. Masters said he and Carlito were equals with the same goals, but that he didn’t need any help to beat someone like Bourne. He reminded Bourne that he almost lost to The Master Lock at The Rumble and thatNo Way Out was a fitting name for the event because there’s no way out of The Master Lock for Bourne. Dykstra and Burchill would be added to the match after stating they deserved an opportunity over Masters, who’d already lost. They’d both have to qualify to get added to the match. [During the match, Masters would lock The Master Lock on Bourne, but it’d be broken up by Dykstra. Dykstra and Masters would go at it, before things spilled outside the ring. Burchill would find a vulnerable Bourne all along before hitting the Curb Stomp (standing surfboard followed by a head stomp.) Burchill would snatch the Intercontinental Championship from the ref and put his arm in front of the refs face as he yelled for him to raise it in victory.] - Fatal-4-Way - Intercontinental Championship

    Mr. Kennedy ©
    vs. Montel Vontavious Porter vs. Edge vs. Christian vs. Randy Orton vs. Triple H - General Manager, William Regal, would remind us that he still has a WWE Championship rematch to cash in, but it wouldn’t be at No Way Out. He makes life hell for the champ leading up to the event, with Kennedy not backing down or taking any shit from Regal. Regal would make Kennedy defend against five other competitors here, who would all have to qualify. The other underlying storylines were the feuds between Edge and Christian and Randy Orton and Triple H. The Game let it known on the Raw after the Rumble that he wasn’t defending any McMahon honor, but only that of his wife and that Vince and Shane were of no concern of his. Orton would stay just a few steps ahead of The Game, avoiding him and keeping him in pursuit. Triple H would get his hands on the tag champs, whose numbers would get the better of him, during a backstage assault, but they’d take the win and make a break for it, leaving Triple H seething. Over the weeks, The Game would take his frustrations out against face and heel competitors, in the back and in the ring, as he’d interrupt matches. It was his law until he got his hands on Orton. Edge was fired up to also get his hands on Christian for costing him a rumble match opportunity. Christian would also act cowardly and run whenever Edge was about to get his hands on him. MVP would finally get a WWE Championship opportunity, albeit not a one-on-one one here. MVP let us know his time had arrived and that after No Way Out the WWE Champion will be ballin’. [Triple H would beat the crap out of MVP, as he looked at Orton in the chamber. MVP put up a bit of offense, but Triple H ended it with a Pedigree. Edge was out next and he and The Game tangled, with Edge taking what Triple H ditched out and gave him some back. Mr. Kennedy came out next and he went after Edge and Triple H. Randy came out next and Triple H was on him like white on rice. He’d viciously beat The Apex Predator down, bursting him open. Christian came out last and he and Edge went to town. Christian and Orton teamed up on Edge with Christian eliminating him. Kennedy would eliminate Christian. The champ fought both Orton and Triple H, being taken out by Orton. Orton and The Game would go at it with Orton getting the upper-hand and bursting Triple H open. Orton would hit an RKO outside the ring on The Game and eliminated him. Kennedy and Orton would go at it, both not willing to give an inch. Kennedy would end up throwing off an RKO before coming back with Mic Check before eliminating Orton.] - Elimination Chamber match - WWE Championship


    (I had a lot of fun with this up until I had to write out WrestleMania and then it became a chore. It's best to put this one to bed here.)

    WrestleMania XXVI
    Raw/ECW/Smackdown
    March 28, 2010

    The Big Show vs. Rey Mysterio vs. John Cena vs. Nick Nemeth (w/Rosa Mendes) vs. Trevor Murdoch vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Goldust vs. Montel Vontavious Porter vs. Carlito vs. Chris Masters - MVP was embarrassed about the way he went out at No Way Out and after qualifying for MITB, vowed he had to win the briefcase and that nothing else was acceptable. Nemeth would find himself some management help, as Rosa would convince him that what his career needed was the right woman by his side to take him to the next level. Carlito and Masters would defeat Primo and Escobar in tag action and move on to bigger and better things as they’d put it. [The match was pure chaos as one would expect. Show and Cena and Nemeth and Murdoch would further take out their animosity towards each other. Kofi was cat-like and had a big spot hitting a diving crossbody off the top of ladder onto the waiting Masters. Show would send Rey over the ropes, crashing into a ladder on the outside. Cena and Goldust had an intriguing back and forth, with giving the Bizarre One an Attitude Adjustment from the middle of the ladder. Show would send men flying as he pushed over two ladders holding with four men atop them. It would come down to Cena, Nemeth and MVP duking it out, inches from the briefcase. Cena and Nemeth were on one ladder and MVP was on one by himself. After an exchange of hands, Cena would bounce Nemeth’s head off the ladder before throwing him off, sending him ricocheting off the ropes and crashing into the mat. And now it was just two. MVP would make himself over to the ladder with the best path to the briefcase. He and Cena would tussle up top, with both teetering and nearly falling off. Cena would end up getting MVP on top his shoulders for an AA, but MVP would fight it, so Cena had to reach for the briefcase with MVP on his shoulders. MVP would reach up and grab ahold of the briefcase and unhinge it, just as Cena sent him flying over with an AA onto the mass of ladders below. It was pure carnage, as bodies were scattered, battered and broken. But MVP had the MITB briefcase lying on his chest as trainers came out to check on the competitors.] - Money In The Bank ladder match

    Paul London vs. The Brian Kendrick (w/Ezekiel Jackson)

    The Brian Kendrick could no longer hide behind Ezekiel, nor could his sharp witted tongue keep London and him from meeting in the squared circle any longer. [These two would absolutely tear it up, knowing each other so well, we’d see exciting offense met with timely counters. Ezekiel Jackson would end up getting tossed from the match after two many attacks on London on the outside. Although the big man was gone, the damage had been done to London, who showed sides of hurt ribs. Even still, he’d suck it up and tough it out, despite his former tag partner viciously attacking those ribs for the rest of the contest. London would fight and slide to get his foot on the ropes after TBK locked in the cobra clutch body scissors. After mounting one more comeback, London would seal it with the 450 Splash and pinfall.]

    Sheamus © vs. Elijah Burke - Burke would have to see it alone in this one as the rest of The New ECW’s game plan was to put their undivided attention on the ECW Championship match and making sure Cody walked away champion. Burke wasn’t thrilled about this, but he’d have to deal. He’d try to recruit Sheamus into The New ECW, stating he was a much better prospect than Jack Swagger and that they should’ve offered you a spot before him. Sheamus told Burke thanks but no thanks fella. He said the only thing he wants from The New ECW is for each of them to get in line for Brogue Kick after Brogue Kick after Brogue Kick. Realizing he was going to have to face Sheamus straight up at Mania, Burke would interfere in one of Sheamus’ matches, bringing a kendo stick with him. Sheamus would eat Burke’s one free shot before getting tossed around like a ragdoll by The Great White. Burke would escape before getting his head kicked off, but his time to run had come to an end. [Come match time, Burke would spend a lot of time leaving the ring, sending the champ on an eventual chase. Burke would take advantage and get the jump on Sheamus as he was re-entering the ring. Burke would put all he had into one full on assault, but it wouldn’t last long as Sheamus would explode with a big lariat. It was all the champ from then out and after a brief period of offense, Sheamus would end it with a Brogue Kick to retain his championship.] - ECW Television Championship

    Ron Killings © vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. John Morrison - Benjamin and Morrison best of seven series would stall out at 3-2 Morrison, as The Gold Standard kept feigning an injury to keep from having to compete in what could be the deciding match. The Shaman of Sexy would finally catch Benjamin faking his injury and would go to Teddy Long, who was in charge as Vickie was out sick (storyline) to ask him if he could face Benjamin that night. Benjamin would actually end up tying things up with a dirty win of course. Teddy originally booked Morrison to face Killings for the US Championship, considering Benjamin cheated. but Benjamin pleaded his case that he was tied 3-3 despite the circumstances. Teddy didn’t want to add Benjamin but with the record being tied he felt he had to. With the match being made on the go-home show, there wasn’t much interaction with the champion, other than him meeting them both in the back. Killings was being interviewed about his WrestleMania match against Morrison and Benjamin when they both sandwiched him. Morrison looked at the US Championship and then up at Killing before smirking and walking away. Benjamin told Morrison that’s as close to the championship he was getting, as JMo walked away. Benjamin then told Killings, he thinks he’d good, but he’s not the standard. He says at WrestleMania, he’s setting the new standard around here after he takes the US Championship. Killings told Benjamin he likes him, he says he likes John Morrison too. He says he was impressed by their best of seven series, but he’s got news for them, whether it’s JMo or The Gold Standard, one of them is getting got at WrestleMania. Benjamin huffs and chuckles before backing away. - United States Championship

    Paul Burchill © vs. Evan Bourne - Intercontinental Championship

    Edge vs. Christian - Vance Archer shows up and takes out Edge, before Christian would add the finishing touches. - Last Man Standing match

    The Undertaker vs. Chris Jericho (w/Vladimir Kozlov) - Casket match

    Triple H vs. Randy Orton - Falls Count Anywhere match

    Cody Rhodes © (w/The New ECW - Colin Delaney, Bam Neely and Armando Estrada) vs. Jack Swagger (w/Tony Atlas and The Resistance - Chuck Palumbo, Super Crazy and Tommy Dreamer) - If Cody loses, Estrada has to face Tommy Dreamer in a Hardcore match - ECW Championship

    Mr. Kennedy © vs. William Regal - WWE Championship

    Spoiler:

    Royal Rumble winner, CM Punk, would inform the ECW fans that he was keeping his options open for WreslteMania. Those that thought Punk ate, breathed and slept ECW were taken aback. The Resistance asked Punk if he was honestly considering competing for another brands world championship and possibly leaving ECW. Punk told them he couldn’t answer all of that right now and that he was just keeping his options open. Punk would show up on Raw first. He’d sit commentary for one of the WWE Champion, Mr. Kennedy’s matches. Kennedy invited Punk into the ring post-match for a chat. He said it’s been a long time since they’ve met and a lot his changed about him, such as his name, his look and the merchandise around his waist. He re-introduced himself to Punk, doing his “Mr. Kennedy” schtick on mic. Kennedy told Punk he would ask him if he was coming after his championship at WrestleMania, but actually wants to be surprised. He said if Punk does happen to come for him, he better bring the entire Resistance with him because he had to fight like hell to get the WWE Championship and he damn sure will fight him and anyone else to hell to keep it. Punk told Kennedy that he was simply visiting and that he’ll know when everyone else knows and as of right now, he’s just keeping his options open. Punk would show up on Smackdown and would sit commentary for one of World Heavyweight Champion, Jeff Hardy’s matches. Post-match, Jeff didn’t invite Punk into the ring but Punk grabbed and addressed Jeff. Punk told Jeff he just came by to visit and like he told Kennedy on Raw, he’ll know his WrestleMania plans when everyone else does. Before Punk can finish, Jeff finishes for him saying yes he knows Punk is keeping his options open. He says everyone has heard that from him already. Jeff says if Punk does happen to choose to face him at WrestleMania, he’ll be there. Regal, Estrada and Vickie would make tentative world champion matches as they awaited Punk’s decision. On the go-home Raw, Punk would show up again as the champ was in the ring. Punk nodded his head at Kennedy, pointing between himself and Kennedy, signaling it would be them at Mania. On the go-home ECW, Punk confronted Cody. He said they’ve been at war for nearly two years on ECW, making it what it is today. Punk says even though they have two different philosophies, they both want to see ECW succeed. He says what better way than to have Cody Rhodes versus himself in back-to-back WrestleMania, showing the world that ECW is no third rate brand. This confuses Cody and everyone else as the night before Punk had agreed to face Kennedy at Mania. Cody says he doesn’t know what game Punk is playing, but ECW doesn’t need anyone who isn’t sure where their loyalties lie. He tells Punk he can carry ECW on his shoulders going forward and that why don’t he just run along to Raw. Punk seems to be a bit dejected. At the end of the go-home Smackdown, Punk would show up as Jeff had been waiting to see if he’d come. Punk says he’s had his time to think about his options and they’re all enticing, but the one that keeps sticking out at him like a neon sign, just glaring at him is facing Jeff Hardy for the World Heavyweight Championship. He tells Jeff he’ll see him at WrestleMania. - World Heavyweight Championship

    Spoiler:

    [This one saw momentum switch back and forth as the two were evenly matched. Jeff through caution to the wind, as he was willing to do whatever if took to keep the World Heavyweight Championship. Meanwhile, Punk would find out he’d have to dig down deep to keep the champ down, as his best just wasn’t putting Jeff away. So Punk did something no one watching would’ve expected, after a referee bump, with Jeff stirring, Punk would exit the ring to grab the world championship before coming back in and knocking Jeff’s block off with it. Punk would quickly toss the championship outside the ring and cover the champion. The ref would come to and make the dreadful three count, sucking all the air from the arena. CM Punk was the new World Heavyweight Champion.]
