| It’s the last show before this week’s Wienerville Judgement Day on Sunday, and with some big issues just itching to be resolved the previous two SmackDowns have been wild affairs. Let’s go back to last week: After Brian Kendrick scored a big tag team victory over him, Cruiserweight Champion Matt Hardy issued a title match challenge to the rookie for the pay-per-view...Problems between Chris Benoit, Rhyno and FBI escalated as Mr. America, John Cena and Sean O’Haire got thrown into the mix. GM Stephanie McMahon set out to solve the problem by announcing an eight man elimination tag team match for Judgement Day, with the face’s fourth partner to be announced at a later date....Jamie Noble got his name back in the singles mix with a massive win over the much-larger Rikishi...Los Guerreros continued to taunt their perennial rivals Team Angle with the stolen tag team title belts...And, after he retained his championship over Charlie Haas, brock Lesnar was left laying by a seething Big Show.|
-With the usual show opening video package out of the way, we’re treated to graphic of tonight’s main event match: In a rematch from Backlash and as a taster for their triple threat match this Sunday, The Big Show will once again get his hands on Rey Mysterio. But this will be no ordinary match; to prevent Show’s rage form getting out of hand, there will be a special guest referee: Brock Lesnar.
–SmackDown gets underway proper with a somewhat unusual tag-team contest, as Matt Hardy and Shannon Moore get a victory over the intergender pairing of Brian Kendrick and Lita in around six minutes. Lita’s participation is limited to a pair of ranas and some right hands in the early-going, as Kendrick sets out to prove himself worthy of a Cruiserweight title match by fending off both of his opponents. Hardy takes over with a Side Effect, however, and proceeds to wear Kendrick down as much as possible. A little heel miscommunication involving ringside “Moore-on” Crash sets things straight, and Kendrick manages the hot tag to lead into some two-on-two fast-paced action. With Kendrick occupied by both Moore and Crash on the outside, thought, Lita becomes easy pickings for the champ and, after he casually dodges a moonsault press, Matt finishes things with a particularly harsh-looking Twist Of Fate. The Mattitude contingent quickly exits the ringside area, as Kendrick tends to his fallen valet in the ring...
-Another high-quality contest follows the ads, with Roddy Piper’s protege Sean O’Haire getting a major singles win over the Man-Beast Rhyno. With both men’s comrades banned from ringside as per the GM’s ruling, the two men have little choice but to go for the win by simple wrestling, and wrestle they do, throwing each other around with comparative ease. O’Haire takes the clean pinfall after dodging a Gore, ending things after five minutes with his “Cruel Intentions” fireman’s carry spinebuster. He is quickly joined by both Piper and the FBI, who quickly begin putting the boots to their enemy now that the match is officially over. Of course, Rhyno’s tag team partners aren’t going to stand for that, and it’s not long before both Chris Benoit and Mr. America have joined the in-ring melee. They hold their own well, but with Rhyno worn down after his match and the addition of John Cena to the heel team things soon turn around. That is, until, a familiar gong rings out over the PA system....and The Undertaker returns to SmackDown! Fists flailing, the American Badass tears into both John Cena and the FBI, leaving the resurgent Benoit and Mr. America to take care of O’Haire and Piper. The ring is soon cleared of the bad guys, and Tazz speculates that we may just have that fourth partner for Judgement Day...
-Jamie Noble continues his winning ways next, beating his former tag team partner Tajiri clean with two Tiger Bombs in five minutes. The action never lets up for the match’s duration, and Noble gains the advantage after a timely distraction from his girlfriend Nidia. With two big wins in a row, it seems as though the Noble/Nidia pairing is on a role...
-The mid-section of the show goes chatty as the gold-stealing Guerreros make their way to the ring, a canvas bag slung over Chavo’s shoulder. Eddie takes a microphone as Tazz relates to us some news: After the return of The Undertaker, Stephanie has signed a big tag team match for later tonight, with ‘Taker and Mr. America going against The FBI. The commentators quieten down as Eddie begins to speak: After their actions over the past two weeks, the Guerreros have done some thinking. And by putting themselves in Team Angle’s shoes, they’ve realised that what they’ve done is wrong. They would hate it if they were relieved of something that was rightfully theirs, and so, with that in mind, they want to hand these straps back right now. Chavo interjects and promises that they’re dead serious, and after a few seconds’ wait the irate tag team champions suspiciously make their way to the ring. After making the Guerreros back off as they enter the ring, Charlie Haas makes a dramatic grab for the canvas bag-presumably containing the title belts-but Chavo pulls it out of reach, and begins to talk again. They’ll hand it over, on one condition: Seeing as last month’s tag team title match ended so unfairly, they want a rematch this Sunday. But to make sure that nothing is done to screw the Guerreros, they want it no-disqualification, no-countout. Do they have a deal? Haas and Benjamin quickly nod their heads in agreement, and Chavo holds out the bag. They snatch it away and rip it open-and wheel around in anger as two foam championship belts fall out! The Guerreros have already left the ring, however, and before tossing the mic down Eddie has one final remark: “You want the belts back? Then you’d better make sure you win this Sunday!”...
-In what could be seen as a prelude to Sunday’s big match, The Undertaker and Mr. America see off Chuck and Jonny of the FBI in around ten minutes. The match is a somewhat slow-paced affair with Chuck and Jonny repeatedly scoring big moves, but no matter what they do they can’t seem to faze the superstar face team. And, after ‘Taker gets his shoulder up from a Jungle Kick, a chokeslam/leg-drop combo easily finishes off Jonny. Of course, now that the match is over all bets are off, and as before the members of the eight-man tag team match are soon all brawling wildly in and around the ring. Ths time, however, there seems to be no end in sight, and as the referees, backstage staff and arena security empty into the ring we head for a break....
-The show returns to the air with some serious backstage mayhem, as the finally-separated brawlers are being forcibly ejected from the building, one by one, with an anxious-looking Stephanie overseeing the insanity. With a manic Roddy Piper the last to be turfed, Steph orders the door shut and locked, and we head back to the ring....
-Where the familiar strains of “No Chance In Hell” are playing. The crowd voices it’s disapproval as the swaggering Vince McMahon saunters to the ring, a disdainful look on his face. he claims a microphone from ringside and, after shooting the audience a withering look, begins to speak. After several weeks’ absence, he’s here for one thing, and one thing only: To congratulate his daughter on the fine job she’s been doing as General Manager of SmackDown. Ever since he set that one problem right after WrestleMania, things have been running super-smoothly, and he knows it’s down to the excellent managerial skills of his little girl. Of course, the show’s not perfect: There’s a couple of flaws that he’d just like to point out, purely for educational purposes so that Stephanie may reach the great heights of her father. For one thing, she needs to instill some fear into her employees, she needs to begin wielding the Fear Of McMahon. And as well as that, he doesn’t think much of her hiring policy. He’s witnessed her proudest new acquisition-Mr. America-in action, and while he’s sure she wouldn’t be STUPID enough to rehire the idiot he resembles, he certainly thinks little of a competitor who models himself after a washed-up joke of a wrestler. But those are small details-and besides, Mr. McMahon may just have a surprise up his sleeve for Mr. America himself....
-After MC and Tazz lead us through a fast-track run-down of this Sunday’s show, we throw it over to Josh Matthews, who stands with the returning Rey Mysterio before the night’s big event. Rey promises that tonight, he’s going to show the Show that size doesn’t matter-it’s brain power that counts. This Sunday, he’s certainly to be considered the outsider, but stranger things have happened in this business, and he’s certainly beaten the big guys before. Rey’s interrupted in his speech by a black-and-white wearing Brock Lesnar, towering over him and looking more than a little intimidating. Rey simply eyeballs his Judgement Day opponent, and quietly requests that Brock call things “right down the middle” tonight. Brock extends a hand, and promises to do just that as the two athletes shake...
-And Brock keeps to his word, treating both participants equally-by beating the Hell out each man. The contest gets off to a high-paced start, with Mysterio keeping Show moving on a wild goose chase in and around the ring. Once the big man gets his hands on his tiny opponent, things change, and Rey finds himself on the end of a hellacious beating. Unfortunately for the Show, Rey’s heart is bigger than any other part of his body, and he continually kicks out of the brutal power moves he’s hit with. Angered, Show foolishly decides to take it out on his other opponent for Sunday, the special referee. After a short shoving match between the two massive men things get really ugly, and Show grabs Lesnar for a chokeslam. A Rey Rey low blow puts a halt to that, however, and Brock scoops the big man up and hits an earth-shaking F5. The bruised and battered Rey climbs outside and delivers a springboard leg-drop to the felled giant’s head, but before he can cover he too is grabbed by the champion. Brock pulls off his second F5 of the night, dumping Mysterio right onto Show on impact. With the Mexican legend on top of the out-cold behemoth, Brock drops to his knees and counts the pin, giving Mysterio the win in about seven minutes. The WE’s top dog takes his belt from ringside and backs up the ramp, as his Judgement Day opponents lay unconscious in the ring....

| Good stuff again oldschool.|
Be interested to see how you have the Elimination Chamber pan out, particularly with respects who pins HHH (assuming he isnt going over).
I can only imagine what the workrate freaks would make of Goldberg/Nash, but overall it looks like a pretty good card with some strong stories leading into your matches.
