Congratulations, Mr. McIntyre! But shouldn't we spare a thought for the rest of the people who aren't wrestlers? That's why we created the best non-wrestler award. Managers and valets are eligible, however, if they don't also wrestle. So, on to the nominees...Vickie Guerrero, Matt Striker for his commentary, some of you might disagree about this, but Abraham Washington for his show, Lillian Garcia and of course, Jesse Ventura for hosting the very successful Raw episode.

Congrats to Chris and Evan. Let’s only hope they can put Cena away with them. The next award is, yes, you've guessed it, the FU award! Since, it'll be very unfair to the other nominees, we've excluded the ultimate champion of this award, the FU/attitude adjustment/whatever other lame name Cena put for it.
On to the nominees, Batista's Batista Bomb, Finlay's Celtic Cross, Hornsowggle's Tadpole Splash, Goldust's Golden Age and of course, John Cena's STF! And the winner is....STF!
Well, wasn't that even more predictable than the WWE? Anyways, we've been missing some female activity, so, here are the nominees for the worst diva of '09...Jillian Hall, Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Kelly Kelly and the WWE slammy winner for best diva, Maria! Gimme the envelope please....and the winner is....Maria!
to think she spent most of the last 3 months nowhere to be seen and still won the Best Diva Slammy.
However, this award is for the best WWE diva of '09. Nominees are Beth Phoenix, Gail Kim, Natalya, Maryse and Melina. The winner is...Beth Phoenix.
Congratulations to Beth for her win in the best diva of '09. Let’s celebrate back at my hotel room after the show *wink*. This award is for the worst tag team of '09. The nominees are...MVP and Mark Henry, DX, The Bellas, Cryme Tyme and Jesse and Festus. The winner is.....Cryme Tyme.
Unlike the nominees and winners of the last category, these next group of tag teams are bettering the WWE's lousy tag team division. This award is for the best tag team of '09. So, on to the nominees...Hart Dynasty, Legacy, Edge and Jericho, Jerishow and Miz and Morrison. The winner is...Hart Dynasty!
Well folks, that was the Hart Dynasty, the best tag team of '09. Ladies and gentlemen, for better or worse, we have four more awards left. The next one is for the worst match of '09. And the nominees are...John Cena vs. Randy Orton at Bragging Rights, Cena vs. HBK vs. Triple H at Survivor Series, CM Punk vs. Undertaker at Hell in a Cell, DX vs. Jerishow at TLC and Hart Dynasty vs. DX on the 12/25/09 edition of SD. Pass on the envelope please, yes, and the winner is...Cena vs. Orton at Bragging Rights.
*Yawn*...These next matches, are completely unlike the last ones and are the most entertaining and blood-pumping ones. This is the best match of 2009. The nominees are...CM Punk vs. Jeff Hardy at Summerslam, the Royal Rumble match at Royal Rumble, Shawn Micheals vs. Undertaker at Wrestlemania 25, Sheamus vs. John Cena at TLC and Sheamus vs. Cena on the 12/28/09 edition of Raw. And the best match of 2009 is....Sheamus vs. Cena at TLC!
Yeah yeah, I know that wasn't the most blood-pumping match of '09(That would go to Punk vs. Hardy), but Cena going through a table=automatic win. Congratulations to the participants who were involved in the best match of 2009, except for Cena. Up next, we have the Cena award, which is awarded for the worst wrestler of the year. Like the FU award, the ultimate champion, John Cena, is excluded in this award. The nominees are...Slam Master J, Batista(He was an irritating face for the majority of the year), Hornswoggle, The Great Khali and Triple H. And the winner is...Hornswoggle.
Well folks, there you have it, the worst wrestler of 2009, excluding John Cena of course. Now ladies and gentlemen, the moment you've been waiting for, the best wrestler of 2009. The nominees for this award are...Chris Jericho, CM Punk, The Miz, The Undertaker and Randy Orton. The winner is...the Miz!
Congratulations to The Miz! He's just that awesome, folks. However, before me and Nic go off, we still have one more award, the ACA-CT writer of the year. The nominees...Nic Steenburg and Vafa Behnam. And the winner is...Nic Steenburg! Wait a second, Vafa Behnam is challenging Nic to a...*gasp*...bouncy castle match. After a brutal match, Vafa Behnam gets revenge on Nic and becomes the unofficial ACA-CT writer of the year! Revenge is bitter eh? LOL.
Woah, hold on. Nic pulls out a contract stipulating that there can only be one bouncy castle match a year. Seeing as TVFR was lost to the ACA-CT in one in October , there can’t be another one. The results are now nullified.
However, Nic offers a new challenge. If Vafa can beat Nic in a “name that odour” match, he will be the official writer of the year.
After a heinously rank match, Nic wins after correctly identifying the smell of blue cheese being cut by a methane powered chainsaw. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU NIC! I'll get you next time.
So, I hope you all had a good time reading this. On the behalf of the ACA-CT, happy New Year!
Thanks for reading,
Nic and Vafa

WWE has used single branded PPVs before, after the brand extension in June 2003. It was discontinued in March 2007, because single-branded PPVs had already engaged in inter-branded matches and the WWE thought that PPVs weren't entertaining enough.
Here's the list of single branded PPVs before it was discontinued:
New Year's Revolution/Bad Blood(NYR replaced Bad Blood from 2005-2007) Raw 2004–2007
Backlash Raw 2004–2006
Vengeance Smackdown! 2003 Raw 2004–2006
Unforgiven Raw 2003–2006
Cyber Sunday Raw 2004–2006
Armageddon Raw 2003 SmackDown! 2004–2006
No Way Out SmackDown! 2004–2007
Judgment Day SmackDown! 2004–2006
The Great American Bash SmackDown! 2004–2006
No Mercy SmackDown! 2003–2006
December to Dismember ECW 2006
Well, firstly, why should the WWE make single-branded PPVs? Two reasons.
1) This would give other superstars a chance to shine on a Pay Per View.
2) This would raise credibility for the big four.
I'll do one further, and actually list the PPVs, and which brand they're exclusive to. The big four will obviously be tri-branded, and I could just distribute the other PPVs to the brands. However, there is one problem. Bragging Rights. They created Bragging Rights as a competition to determine which brand is the best. There are two options. Lose it or make it a tri-branded PPV. If we chose the second option, we could make it switch places with The Bash, because it would be idiotic to have two tri-branded PPVs in a row when there are only five in a year. ECW will probably be dropped soon, but if not, just consider it sharing a PPV with Smackdown!
Here's the list of single-branded that would benefit the WWE:
Night of Champions Raw
Breaking Point Raw
Extreme Rules Smackdown!
The Bash Smackdown!
Elimination Chamber Smackdown!
Hell in a Cell Smackdown!
Just another one of our suggestions to better the WWE. I'll be stopping here for now.
December 5, 2009
To start, let's look at the terminology. A "face" is the good guy. He is the hero of the fans, and is usually good looking. He is also the company's cash cow in most cases. A "heel" is the bad guy. He is despised by the fans, and want to see him get destroyed by the face.
On to the question at hand: Why do faces get cheered for their actions, and why do heels get booed? The simple answer is because the WWE makes us want to like the faces, and hate the heels. We show our love of, or disgust for, wrestlers with these reactions. This is where things start to get complicated. Why do we cheer a face when he destroys someone's car, in an act that would land anyone else in jail? Why do we boo heels when they walk away from a fight like the bigger man?
The answer to this is because once it is instilled in us that a man is a face, we will follow him religiously and think anything he does is cool. The reverse is true with heels. We despise everything they do because he's bad, and anything he does can't be good.
Faces also tell the fans what they want to hear, no matter how outrageous it may be, fans buy into it. Heels state the often ugly truth about either the fans themselves, other wrestlers, or wrestling in general, or other popular topics. We don't want to face reality, no matter how much we know it to be true.
For example, John Cena will rant and rave about how good he is, and how he's going to win and yadda yadda and so on. He'll then spout a catchphrase or two, and toss some piece of merchandise into the crowd. The fans love it, because they're told to.
CM Punk reaches a life of not drinking, smoking or doing drugs. Outside the ring, he would be a perfect role model. But in the ring, the fans loathe him. This goes back to WWE making us want to hate him, even though he has a good message.
In short, we will cheer for lies and boo the truth. We follow along like sheep with whatever the WWE happens to puke onto our screens 4 days a week.
I mentioned that WWE creates these situations, and they damn well do. Think about it: a face confronts a heel, BEGGING the heel to punch him. If the heel does what the face asked him to, he'd get booed for attacking a "helpless" man. Yet if he walks away like the more mature man would, he gets booed as a coward.
WWE throws the heels into these situations on purpose, because no matter what the heel does, the desired effect is achieved. At the end of the night, the heel gets booed and the face gets cheered. That's all WWE cares about. They manipulate their fans like puppets on a string, and the fans don't realize it.
The more intelligent of the fans will look past the face or heel label and see that a wrestler is good or bad based on other factors, such as how believable is their portrayal of a face or heel, or how well they do in matches (and I don't mean winning. Wrestling is scripted, even 8 year olds know that. Okay, the 8 year olds that aren't Cena fans. Okay, maybe 8 year olds don't know. But smart people do).
Societal norms teach us that destroying another man's car is wrong. They teach us that there are consequences for our actions. They also teach us that life is not fair, and whining and complaining won't change that. Yet why is it that fans cheered Kofi Kingston when he destroyed Randy Orton's brand new Car?
The fact is, some of us secretly have a desire to smash the belongings of assholes in our lives. Yet we can't do it without serious repercussions, or we are too damn pussy to do it. So when we see someone acting it out on TV, we cheer them on because we know that they are living out our fantasies.
When people booed CM Punk because he held an intervention on Smackdown, it was because they all knew he was right. It was a truth that the fans did not want to face. They didn't want their vices exposed on national television by someone like Punk.
We get told that someone is good or bad, then we look for reasons to prove it one way or the other. Even though we're shown something that is normally bad, we'll say it's good because it was done by someone we like, and vice versa for bad guys.
This obviously has it's limitations, but it's proven 4 nights a week by WWE that it holds true for the most part.
Feel free to send me your thoughts on the issue. Shoot an email to ACA-CT@hotmail.com and we'll be sure to post your opinions.
December 3, 2009
"you can't see me...
but i can see you..."
-- Thank god.
"hi cena is the best!
Yu cant see me?"
-- We don't want to see you, you ugly moron. And if Cena is half as illiterate as you are, then no amount of wrestling skills will make him even remotely worthwhile.
"Never give up"
-- Yes, Cena, never give up. If you keep the faith, people might actually come to believe that you're not just a drooling pervert who goes into the wrestling ring as an excuse to touch people's bottoms.
"The champ is here"
-- Ah, so you dethroned Cena as the champ? I must warn you though, Cena's self-application of the epithet "champ" started off in childhood when he replaced the family dog in displaying a remarkable ability to return unwanted objects that his parents threw away. If you ever have the misfortune of being stuck in a wrestling ring with him, expect him to slobber all over you and fetch you sticks and bones.
"CENA KILL SHEAMUSS"
-- Cena is sort of like Tor Johnson, but far less intelligent and loveable.
"U r d real champ"
-- Calling Cena the champ is perfectly acceptable, as long as we accept that the sport of which he is champion is arse grabbing and not wrestling.
"ur time is up my time is now u can t see me sheamus prepare urself for an attitude adjustment on some tables ur nothin u won the battle royal by sitting in the corner and let the real men finish each other i swear if stayed with randy he would make u cry"
-- Ah, this statement is ridiculed with examples of repressed homosexuality. As most people familiar with Cena will know, the "wrestler" was rejected from the gay community due to his unintelligence and bad dress sense. He now proposes to sodomise his opponent on a table like a "real man" because he's feeling "Randy". Quite disturbing, but not really intimidating in any real sense.
"Sheamus the job will be finished.John Cena will win the match.Spades last eleven days left."
-- Our protagonist once again makes sexual advances on his opponent. He proposes to win the match by "finishing the job", and considering how much practice Cena's mouth muscles have had giving blowjobs to other wrestlers, he may very well put his money (for money read someone else's dick) where his mouth is.
-- Cena thinks he rocks, but when it comes to wrestling, he generally rolls.
"thanks be to cnfrimd.."
-- I'd make a witty remark on what the cetard has said here, but his inability to use the English language has probably prevented him from really saying anything.
"cena u r one off my favourite wrestlers i watched ur john cena my life dvd the other day and just like u i hope 1 day i can become a future wwe champion i am only 13 years old but wen u were young u started lifting weights and thts how ur career started so i hope 1 day i can live the life uv lived u used 2 play for an ...american football team im from glasgow in scotland but i now live in co.tyrone in northen ireland but no matter were i live i hope u destroy sheamus at TLC u r the champ and your still going 2 b after TLC put Sheamus throw a table and keep ur WWE championship no matter wat carlito said on raw ur wwe fans will follow u throw and throw"
-- Ah, the "My life" DVD. Of course it was riddled with omissions. It left out some of Cena's most interesting experiences, most of which involved molesting livestock and being beaten up by toddlers.
"thank you for giving of your time for sick children."
-- He probably made them considerably sicker. I know that I can't see him without feeling slightly nauseous.
"i think your the hottest wrestler ever... i even married my husband john spence of indianapolis in because he looks like your double in the face and body... wish you could see him you could be twins:) thanks for always putting a smile on my face chelee spence"
-- Poor Mr Spence is also Cena's penis double, and has to buy his condoms at a store for Japanese midgets.
"come on cena fu sheamus in a table"
-- To the best of my previous knowledge, "fu" was not a verb. But if the idiot who posted that means "fuck up", then I expect that Cena will attempt to fuck Sheamus up, down and sideways. He may find it difficult though, since his only sexual experiences are with barnyard animals.
"i love u cenaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa"
-- If the person who posted this note of affection was a small rodent with a bushy tail, then this love might be mutual and reach some kind of sexual consumnation.
"I LOVE YOU CENA.... THE BEST
-- The best what? I didn't realise that being phallically impaired, sexually perverted in favour of sleeping with chickens, hideously ugly and dumber than a bag of hammers could set a man above his peers.
"you are a good actor too cena, whats your next movie?"
-- Yes, he's a marvellous actor! He can even pretend to be a wrestler!
Well, hope you had a laugh. I'll be signing off for now.
Before I go on with the match, I'll introduce you to John Cena's opponent, the ferocious, the angry, the Grizzly Bear. Thanks to wikipedia, I got some information on the Grizzly Bear. Weighing in at 500 pounds, he hails from Ontario, Canada. The Grizzly Bear has had only one tenure in wrestling, he was in UFC under the name of "Carlos Newton".
Yes, John Cena will face a Grizzly Bear. What's better than to watch Cena get demolished by an angry grizzly bear?
The Grizzly Bear's music hits, and he enters the match with everybody who is literate, can walk and around the age of 14-45(With some exceptions, *Cough* ahem...) cheering. The champ then makes his entrance, welcomed by the fat horny chicks, and the spoiled five year olds who have replica spinner belts, Cena t-shirts, action figures and tons of other Cena merchandise that has kept him in his job. Cena takes his shirt off, and throws it to the smart marks section, which is burned/used as an alternative to tissue. As soon as Vinnie Mac finds out about this, the camera men are ordered to cut off that scene, and instead, film Cena throwing another shirt, this time into the other section, where we see the fat horny chicks wrestling five year olds for the shirt.
The bell rings, and the match starts. The Grizzly Bear starts the offensive(as always) and completely destroys Cena. This continues for twenty more minutes. The Grizzly Bear goes for his finisher, the Mauler(powerbomb). As Cena is in the air, he ducks behind the Grizzly Bear, and clotheslines him, sending the Grizzly Bear to the ground. Cena goes on the top rope, and attempts to hit the legdrop. However, the Grizzly Bear quickly wakes up, and delivers a superplex to Cena. The Grizzly Bear goes for the pin...1....2....Cena, who looked like he had died seconds ago, just wakes up on the last second(Seriously, SELL your injuries).
The Grizzly Bear goes for a couple of body blows, but Cena reverses it into the "superman clothesline" that sends them to the outside and bringing attention to the horny chicks and five year olds who all stand up and cheer. The Grizzly Bear gets into the ring before Cena and starts taunting. Cena, who looks like as if he got shot, crawls his way into the ring at the count of 8. The Grizzly Bear, on the turnbuckle, is about to deliver a body splash on Cena. The Grizzly Bear hits it, but Cena ducks out of the way. Cena now in feverish fever, runs and delivers a clothesline on the Grizzly Bear. He goes on the turnbuckle and hits the legdrop. He then does that five-knuckle shuffle move. He goes for the STF and hits it. However, the Grizzly Bear manages to reverse the move. The Grizzly Bear hits Cena with a couple of hard punches. He goes for the Mauler and gets it. Cena, yet again attempts to look like he's knocked out, breaks the pin at 2.
Cena wakes up, does his "three moves of doom" and goes for the FU. He lifts him up as if the bear is a five-hundred ton warship and delivers the FU. The Bear, however, does not follow the script that Vinnie Mac gave to him earlier, and kicks out of the pin. The Bear then gets real frustrated and decides to cut the crap. He starts attacking Cena and completely destroys him. The high point is when Cena starts bleeding and the horny chicks and five year olds start crying. This angers Vinnie Mac and tells the officials to find out a way to stop the match or else their merch sales would take a hit. Their first solution is, to get interference on behalf of the bear. Enter Hornswoggle, who comes out of the his home, the ring, and attacks Cena. Hornswoggle delivers a punch with his pea sized hands, and Cena pretends as if a cannon shot him. The ref calls for the bell and Cena is declared the winner.
This just proves that Cena doesn't know how to wrestle and relies on scripts to win. Seriously, as Nic said, GTFO(Note to self: Future Cena finisher name) of wrestling.

Let's continue with one more traditional Survivor Series match, Team James vs. Team McCool. *Yawn*, to say the truth, I didn't even watch the match, I was playing my Nintendo DS instead and was listening to AIC's Black Gives Way To Blue(Which is amazing, btw). So, I just pop on wwe.com and read the article about the match. But anyways, that should be insignificant, as I'm not here to describe the match, I'm here to say what that match has achieved. So anyways, the matchup starts off as resident prostitute, Kelly Kelly, eliminating Layla. Wut...? Layla being the first superstar eliminated is terrible for her heel status, not to mention that Kelly Kelly eliminated her. Then, Michelle McCool eliminates Gail Kim!? Just unbelievable, Gail Kim, possibly the most talented diva the WWE has at the moment, getting eliminating second? Well, this PPV sure has downgraded some top superstars...*Cough* Orton *Cough*. After that, a fine showing by Beth Pheonix, as she eliminates two more divas. However, her fine run is disrupted by James, who eliminates Pheonix and then Alicia. Melina defeats captain McCool in a decent finish.
Benefits and Negatives
+ Michelle McCool heel status
+ Melina face status
+ Mickie James face status
Neutral showing by Pheonix
Gave up chance of a new diva push
- Gail Kim face status
- Layla heel status
Potential Storylines Generated
James teams up with Melina
James and Melina vs. McCool, Layla and Pheonix
I can't really think of anything else
Next up, the WHC match, in which the unified tag team champions took on Undertaker in a triple threat(no, not handicap) match. Jericho and Show started off by attacking the Undertaker, then Jericho locking Taker in the Walls of Jericho. Show then attacked Jericho to make it a three-way dance. Taker then locked in the Hell's Gate on Big Show, and won the match. Ugh, talk about generic. So, what has this match possibly done? What, to show that the Undertaker is an unstoppable force and will not lose even if the odds are piled up against him? Yeah, we learned that years ago.
Benefits and Negatives
+ Undertaker face status
- Jerishow's tag team status
Yet some more predictable crap shoved down our throats
Potential Storylines Generated
Jerishow vs. Brothers of Destruction
Jericho vs. Undertaker
Big Show vs. Undertaker
Now, the moment you've been waiting for! Our favorite superstar taking on DX! The match starts off with HBK superkicking Triple H. Then it's a three-way dance. Then Cena makes Triple H tap out. BORING. God, the WWE are so damn predictable nowadays, and besides, if they are going to use recycled ideas, at least use some that weren't on the same PPV(Read the above passage). It's the exactly same idea, a wrestler betrays his partner, then they start fighting until the defending champion makes one of them tap.
Benefits and Negatives
+ Cena face status(I don't know if that's a benefit or a negative...)
- DX tag team status(Read the above)
Cena being shoved down our throats for a long, long while
Potential Storylines Generated
Cena vs. all of WWE's past, present and future wrestlers(Winner: Cena)
Anyways, hope all of you have enjoyed my review.
November 24, 2009
First off, I'm going to finish the Shane-O storyline I started a while ago. I'll do what will probably be my most in-depth post ever (more on that later), and start a new storyline. I'll do a storyline post every month, and fill the gaps with other ramblings.
I'll keep you posted.
November 23, 2009
So, one of the big four and personally one of my favorite PPVs of the year, Survivor Series came around. To my major disappointment, most of the matches were terrible, boring and predictable. Here's why...
First, let's start off with the traditional Survivor Series match which team Orton faced team Kingston. It started off well, with Orton eliminating Henry and Punk eliminating R-Truth in a fine opening. After a number of eliminations, Christian and Kingston took on Punk and Orton. Then, Kingston's possibly last chance of winning went out the window, when Christian got eliminated. Or did it? Kingston amazingly managed to pin CM Punk, after a very back and forth match. Now, I'm sure you are thinking this...Orton + fatigued wrestler = Dead meat. But no, Kingston almost immediately hits the Trouble on Paradise on Orton, and wins the match. This is completely degrading to Punk and especially Orton. Randy Orton, who is a multi-time world champion, the youngest world champion, Royal Rumble winner and countless other accomplishements to his name, to lose in a measly six seconds to a well, not "top class" finisher. What I mean by "top class" is that the other finishers that were worthy of making Orton laying on the mat for three seconds, such as the GTS, Walls of Jericho, Chokeslam, Tombstone, and the Codebreaker, for only a few. However, since the WWE took that risk at the expense of Orton and Punk, they better back it up by giving Kofi a push. If they don't, it'll be a complete waste of degrading Punk and Orton. Come on, pinning two former World champions in a few seconds is no easy feat. So WWE, don't waste this chance.
Benefits and Negatives
+ Kofi's face status
+ credibility of Trouble in Paradise
Possible new face in the main event(Finally!).
- Orton's heel status
- Punk's heel status
Possible temporary/permanent removal of Orton and Punk from the main event, just like Rey Mysterio(Nooo!)
Potential Storylines Generated
Punk vs. R-Truth
Kofi vs. Orton
Kofi vs. Cena
Kofi vs. Sheamus(If he wins at TLC, which is unlikely)
Kofi's shot for the WWE championship
Next up, Batista versus Rey. It was an okay match. Back and forth until Batista's reversal, then downhill for Mysterio from there. Batista then pounded Rey, until the official stopped the match. Well, only thing I can say is, I hope that they turn Batista into a big, badass heel, because main-event heels are desperately needed in the WWE.
Benefits and Negatives
+ Batista heel status
- Rey face status
A possible new, vicious heel in the making.
Possible Storylines Generated
Batista vs. Rey Mysterio
Batista vs. Undertaker
Batista teaming up with a heel, such as CM Punk or even Drew McIntyre
Then next is another traditional Survivor Series match in which Drew McIntyre, Jack Swagger, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler and the US champ and captain of the team, The Miz taking on Matt Hardy, Finlay, Evan Bourne, Shelton Benjamin and IC champ and captain, John Morrison. This match is a perfect example of arrogant, ambitious heels versus athletic, electrifying faces. The match goes off with Bourne eliminating Ziggler, and McIntyre eliminating Bourne. Then, an interesting showdown of the Irishmen Sheamus and Finlay with Sheamus winning it eventually(Yes!). Then, after a number of pins, captain Morrison faces not one, not two, but THREE superstars all on his own. And not just any superstars, The Miz, Sheamus and Drew McIntyre. Morrison showcases his terrific high-flying ability and has some offence, but the trio prove too strong for him. Sheamus eventually pins him, and hopefully, it'll bring either three of them to the main event level. Suprisingly, Sheamus is the number one contender for the WWE Championship at TLC facing derpity-dip-shit, John Cena. The unfortunate truth is that we all know that Sheamus will not win. But all in all, this match was probably the best of the PPV. WWE, watch out for the reign of Miz-ery.
Benefits and Negatives
+ The Miz heel status
+ Drew McIntyre heel status
+ Sheamus heel status
Possible new talent into the main event
At the moment, I can't find any negatives really
Potential Storylines Generated
Drew McIntyre, The Miz or Sheamus shot for world championship gold
The Miz and Sheamus team up to make an explosive tag team
McIntyre vs. Morisson
McIntyre vs. Undertaker(But this seems unlikely)
Sheamus vs. John Cena
Sheamus and The Miz vs. DX(If they team up)
The Miz vs. John Cena
I'm signing off now, check out for part 2.
November 22, 2009
Let's face it, WWE was at it's peak during the Monday Night Wars. We need that excitement back. The only way to get it back is to have a rival company make it to the same stage as WWE. The closest company to achieving this is TNA. So let's take a look at the steps TNA needs to take in order to compete with WWE.
First of all, stop hiring WWE rejects and washed up talent from bygone decades. Sure, there were a couple that still had some career and enough of a name left to use, but the rest are garbage. To go along with this, bring in some young talent to replace them.
Find some new guys by maybe partnering with a federation like ROH or something. Keep pushing the fresh faces they already have. Don't let them go to waste
Next up, move to either Monday or Friday nights. Don't go head to head with WWE's "D" show. So what you can outdraw Superstars? Nobody cares about that crappy show. You want to get noticed? Outdraw SD or Raw. Besides, that shouldn't be too hard, based on WWE's current crop of crap.
Fire Russo. Nuff said.
I like that Jarrett is gone, but I'm kinda leery on the Hulkster being in charge. It may be good, it may be bad. I'm just going to see where it goes and pass judgement after it pans out a bit more.
Start advertising outside of Spike. I have yet to see a TNA commercial that wasn't on Spike. Seriously, you can't get your name out there if you don't try to get your name out there. This is probably a financial issue, but if TNA fires all the old talent that's useless, then sign new guys to entry level spots, that could free up some cash.
Plus if they advertise more, people will start watching, and buying PPV's and merch. Plus advertisers may come to TNA to put their name on stuff. Get sponsors;.
TNA should also start booking larger arenas. I say this because you can't reach a lot of people if you tape in some little lot in Universal Studios. Take the show on the road, and book sligthly larger venues to start, then work up to larger ones. This shouldn't be done however, until it's clear that the arenas would get good sales.
In closing, TNA needs to watch WWE carefully, and do the complete opposite of what they're doing. It's clearly not working for them, why would it work for TNA?
I'll be back some time again with the finish to Shane-O's retirement.
Peace out, y'all
October 31, 2009
I was at home, watching Raw with my sister(who barely watches wrestling btw). She thought Raw was real crap, and I don't blame her. After watching Raw, she instantly found out that WWE was scripted. So, what should the WWE be doing to avoid future incidents like this?
Firstly, it's that the wrestlers deliberately puts themselves in the position of their opponents finishers. For example, if I wanted to go for an missile dropkick(Jumping dropkick from the turnbuckle) my opponent would be standing in a forward position, facing me. If I wanted to go for a bulldog from the top rope instead, my opponent would also be in a standing position, but facing the opposite way. This has been apparent, and seems that the wrestlers want to be fed a finisher.
Hmm, has anybody heard that the Wrestlemania ring canvas is made out of pillow feathers? Well, that would explain why Undertaker was fed a hundred finishers by HBK and Undertaker delivering a thousand tombstones, until the 1001th tombstone managed to get the win at WM25. If you did not get my point, I was refering to the sudden surge of energy that is given to the wrestlers at PPVs. I mean, come on, what difference does a match at Raw and a match at a PPV have? None, and it's just stupid to see a match at Raw taking five minutes, but a match at the PPV taking thirty.
But hey, even though this is a problem and makes WWE look a bit fake, PPVs are a major way of making cash. Also, it just wouldn't seem right to see a Raw match surpass, say, a Survivor Series match. Besides, a PPV has more airtime than a normal show. So, if you want, we could just ignore the last paragraph.
Is it just me, or does some wrestlers let opponents out of their pinfall attempts?
Even though this is less apparent than the other things mentioned here, it is still important. When a wrestler simply forgets that he HAS to win and his opponent doesn't, his opponent bails him out at the last moment. Take an example, if Ziggler goes for a pinfall on Cena and since Ziggler probably demolished Cena, Cena is unable to counter the pinfall. Ziggler suddenly remembers that if he pins Cena, Vince McMahon will draft him to some brand as a "push" and leaves him there, fighting jobbers, just like Shelton Benjamin. Ziggler suddenly avoids this scenario and deliberately lets Cena out of the pin. Okay, this may be exaggerated, but I think you know what I mean.
And sometimes, if both the wrestlers forget which wrestler should win(Although this is not the case all the time...) the referee intervenes with the result of the match by having an extra count or goes slower than normal until the wrestler realises that. Haven't you noticed that the referee goes for a four count at least once?
Speaking of referees...haven't you noticed that instead of a five count for a DQ, the referee does a three count instead? Something even more common, haven't you noticed two counts for a pinfall ends up being the winning pinfall? I have noticed that a lot myself, when I just hear two taps and the next thing I know, the wrestler's hand is raised.
Last but surely not least, firing Cena would help the WWE look less fake. Duh...
I'm sure there are way more reasons that I have not mentioned here and that some of these things I have mentioned have not been noticed by you, but all in all, it should be enough for a good read.
October 27, 2009
The news of Shane's resignation becomes public. Everyone speculates that he's off to help his mom with her campaign (which will fail, just sayin'). There is no other news than that at this time.
It is announced that Shane will have a going away party next week live on Raw. Every superstar will be there, and so will the rest of the McMahon family.
It's time. Shane-O's leaving the WWE. The ring has a podium set up in the middle, and there's a table with a cake shaped like a dollar sign on it. The superstars file out to ringside, followed by the McMahons.
Everyone is enjoying the party, and ask Shane to say a few words.
Shane: "Ladies and gentlemen, I've been with the WWE for nearly my entire life. I've enjoyed every moment of it. But now, it's time for me to move on. But before I do, I want to dispel any rumours about why I'm stepping down from my position. I am not, as some have suggested, leaving to work on my mother's campaign for senate.
I'm stepping down because I wish to invoke section 3 of the contract I made with my father. When I signed on to WWE several years ago, I signed a contract. Section 3 of that contract would allow me to take over the reigns when I felt that my father was no longer capable of running the company.
Given the current state of affairs, the stagnant title pictures, the guest host crap, I'd say that you've really dropped the ball, Dad. I'm invoking section 3 effective immediately. Dad, you must pack up your office and leave at once. I am the new chairman of--"
Stefanie wrestles the mic out of his hands.
Stef: "Hold on. We agreed that when Dad lost his marbles that I would be the one to take over. Besides, I control his power of attorney. Should Dad become unable to make decisions for himself, which he clearly can't, I get to make said decisions for him. I decide that you are NOT the new chairman, you are NOT the--"
Now Vince grabs the mic.
Vinnie: "Shut up, both of you. Just shut up! I may not be the man I was 20 years ago, but I'm still able to run my own company, dammit! Now both of you listen to me, and listen good: if you'd read further into that contract, you'd see that I have the power to overturn it as I see fit. Right now, I see fit. As for my power of attorney, I hereby revoke it from you, Stefanie.
I'm not leting either one of you take over until I see proof that you can actually run a decent show. Starting next week, the competition is on to see who can be the better GM."
With that, Vince storms off back to his office. Shane and Stef just look at eachother with angry expressions.
Anyways, I need to run to work. I'll try to finish off part 2 later this week. If not, it'll be next week.
October 24, 2009
October 23, 2009
The show starts off with Rhodes and DiBiase fighting verbally, again, until Randy Orton enters the arena, but stays on the ramp.
Randy Orton: I see that both of you had had enough of each other. I guess that tag teams were meant to be broken up. Now, to help me out to decide who'll be kicked out of Legacy, I'll put both of you in single matches tonight.
Match 1 -- Cody Rhodes vs. Chavo Guerrero
Rhodes destroys Chavo Guerrero impressively. A screenshot of Orton, who looks somewhat impressed, looking at a monitor backstage is shown.
Match 2 -- Ted DiBiase vs. Chris Masters
After a very impressive technical match-up, DiBiase picks up the win. Another screenshot of Orton looking impressed backstage is shown.
Orton then makes his way to his car, but DiBiase stops him.
Ted DiBiase: Hey Orton, it'll definitely be me, right? I have way more charisma and wrestling ability than Rhodes. You know that.
Cody Rhodes, who seems like he came out from nowhere, interrupts DiBiase.
Cody Rhodes: What are you saying, DiBiase? Orton will surely pick me.
Randy Orton: Guys, I haven't made a decision yet. Look, next week, DiBiase will team up with me. And the week after that, Rhodes will team up with me. Now, if you'll excuse me...
Orton enters his car and drives it.
Match 1 -- Ted DiBiase and Randy Orton vs. Cryme Tyme
Orton is not even tagged in once, but his team manages to pick up the win after a very impressive performance by Ted. Orton looks very satisfied with the performance.
Match 2 -- Cody Rhodes and Randy Orton vs. Primo and Carlito
The Colon's reunition was not a sweet one as Orton's team picked up the win. After a while, Orton picks up a microphone.
Randy Orton: I have made my decision...after a match at Breaking Point. And what better to be a submission match, which will truly show who has the better wrestling ability. And to counter any interference, I will be the guest enforcer for the match.
Match 1 -- Cody Rhodes vs. Ted DiBiase
After a long match and no interference, DiBiase makes Rhodes tap. After the match, Orton congratulates DiBiase. However, Rhodes gets a chair and enters the ring. He attempts to deliver a shot to Orton, however, Orton quickly ducks and delivers a very lethal RKO to Rhodes. Orton does that \____o___/ pose. DiBiase picks up the chair and looks like he's about to deliver a shot to Rhodes. Shockingly, DiBiase delivers a shot to Orton. DiBiase helps Rhodes to get back on his feet and the Legacy music hits. DiBiase and Rhodes celebrate and leave the ring as they leave a lifeless Orton in the ring.
Rhodes and DiBiase are in the ring with smiles on their faces.
Cody Rhodes: I am happy to say that DiBiase has been traded back to Raw, and therefore, Priceless is now an official stable. And since we have stopped being Orton's tools, we're shooting for some gold.
Orton enters the ring but looks injured.
Randy Orton: I swear if I wasn't injured, I would have RKOed both of you into space. Since I can't kick your asses, these guys can.
Jerishow enters the ring, but Priceless quickly leave it. Rhodes gets a microphone.
Cody Rhodes: I'm not going to engage in some kind of crazy brawl. Noooo. Instead, why don't we have a title match?
Chris Jericho: You haven't even deserved a title shot. Wha...
The guest host(Whoever he/she is lol) appears on the TitanTron.
Guest host: How about a contendership match for Priceless next week, and if they win, they'll face Jerishow at Hell in a Cell?
Ted DiBiase: Jerishow, consider those titles ours. And that's a promise.
Okay, I'll be stopping now. Tune in for the next parts. Another thing, for the rumors of Nic trying to move the blog into Webs.com is half true. We're just going for a trial run to see what Webs.com can provide. Me and Nic will keep you updated as more on the story comes. Oh and I just like to point this out, I'm discontinuing this storyline mainly because a similar storyline was on SvR '10's Orton's RTWM mode.
October 21, 2009
It is Raw a week after another successful WWE title defence by Randy Orton on The Great American Bash PPV with help from Legacy. The screen is focused on Micheal Cole and Jerry Lawler.
Micheal Cole: As some of you may know, it was announced on WWE.com that the United States champion, Jack Swagger, was injured. The injury was not caused by any superstar. It was caused when he accidentaly fractured his calf muscle while playing football. More information on this subject is on WWE.com.
Jerry Lawler: And another equally important news, a battle royal will be held tonight for the vacant United States championship. This is huge news, isn't it Cole?
Micheal Cole: Yes it is, and it will start after this commercial break.
When the commercial ends, it is shown that Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes are preparing backstage while talking to each other.
Ted DiBiase: Cody, just know that if either of us becomes the US champion, it won't get in the way of Legacy.
Cody Rhodes: Of course it won't, although we would be finally stepping out of the shadow of Randy Orton...
Ted DiBiase: What are you saying? Randy is a great mentor for us and if it weren't for him, you'd still be jobbing to Hacksaw and Cryme Tyme.
Cody Rhodes: But still, all the titles and accomplishments that Legacy had done were all done by Randy. I'm just saying if that if either of us win tonight, Legacy will be known as something other than Randy.
Both of them finish preparing and they go to the ring.
Match 1 -- Battle Royal
Kofi Kingston, The Miz, Ted DiBiase, Cody Rhodes, Santino Marella, Chavo Guerrero, Carlito, Evan Bourne, Jamie Noble, Chris Masters, MVP, Mark Henry, The Big Show, Chris Jericho and Primo enter the ring. The match starts off with everybody delivering blows to each other. The ring is drowned in complete chaos. The next highlight is when Kofi Kingston delivers an enziguiri to Evan Bourne, which sends him out. However, Santino quickly takes advantage and eliminates Kingston from behind. Mark Henry attempts to carry both Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase, but Jericho nails Henry with a dropkick to the face. Mark Henry is tangled in the ropes, while Jamie Noble attempts to take this advantage to eliminate Henry. Henry reverses and tosses Noble outside of the ring. Mark Henry then seizes Chavo, and sends him outside the ring. The Miz then delivers a devastating kick to Primo, which sends him to the outside. The Miz spots MVP, and starts attacking him. MVP wins the lockup and lifts him to the outside. Chris Masters lifts up Santino impressively and also throws him outside. Chris Masters then is felt with a shot to the forehead from MVP. The Big Show delivers a devastating clothesline to MVP, who seems like he's unconcious. Mark Henry delivers a pounding to Jericho, DiBiase and Rhodes until he and Big Show engage in a stare-off. Show makes the first move in a big punch to the stomach. This lock-up continues until Henry manages to eliminate Show. However, Jericho, Masters, DiBiase and Rhodes quickly lifts Henry up and with a combined effort, they manage to eliminate him. Jericho, Rhodes, DiBiase, Masters, MVP and Carlito are left in the ring. Punches, lock-ups and grapples are thrown in the ring. As Masters and Carlito lock-up, it seems that Jericho and Legacy made some kind of partnership and team up on MVP. The only time MVP manages to get an offensive is when he eliminates Ted DiBiase, but Rhodes and Jericho quickly take him out and soon eliminating him. Carlito goes for the backstabber on Masters and gets it. Jericho quickly locks Carlito up in the Walls of Jericho where Carlito continously bangs his hands on the canvas, signifying that he tapped out, however, elimination is only by both feet touching the floor. Jericho finally puts Carlito out of his misery and eliminates him. Rhodes quickly betrays Jericho, and takes him outside. Jericho is furious but officials manage to control him from entering the match. Rhodes picks up a beaten Masters and eliminates him easily. The bell rings and Rhodes is lying on the canvas with a sigh of relief. An official delivers the belt to him, and Rhodes quickly hugs it. Randy Orton and Ted DiBiase come out to congratulate him and they soon leave the ring. After Legacy left the ring, Vince McMahon makes his way to the ring. He picks up a microphone.
Vince McMahon: I would just like to remind all of you that the WWE Draft will take place next week, right here on Raw. I would also like to say that Cody Rhodes's first title defence will be on Thursday Night, on Superstars.
Vince McMahon leaves the ring.
Three days pass, and Superstars finally comes.
Match 1 -- Cody Rhodes vs. Chris Jericho
Rhodes defends his title after a very impressive performance.
After a couple of opening matches, the US champion versus the IC champion is announced.
Match 1 -- Cody Rhodes vs. John Morrison
John Morrison wins, after a not so amazing performance by Rhodes. The draft lottery goes and it's picked. Everbody is shocked to see who got drafted. His music hits and he enters the ring. It was...Ted DiBiase who got drafted. John Morrison quickly leaves the ring, with no intention to get involved. Ted DiBiase looks very angrily at Cody Rhodes, as if it was Cody's choice to chose Ted to get drafted. Ted picks up a microphone.
Ted DiBiase: Cody, do you think that every non-title match is important to you? Do you think after you won the US title, you could just forget Legacy? Cody...
Ted is quickly interrupted by Randy Orton.
Randy Orton: Guys, guys! You're forgetting the most important thing here, and that is our alliance and friendship. Why do you guys make such a fuss about getting drafted to another brand? This actually means that Legacy will go on to a further WWE domination and will conquer also Smackdown! Now, I know that you guys need to blow off some steam, so I've asked the gm to book you two a match...against each other. Hopefully, that will soften this tiny and useless quarell between you two and show each other the wrestling skill that each of you posses.
Before the match starts, Cody enters the ring with some sort of speech to tell everyone.
Cody Rhodes: Yes, I know, Ted. I was a terrible partner to you, all after some stupid championship. I'm here to apologise, and I promise this won't get in the way of Legacy...
Ted interrupts Cody with something of his own to tell.
Ted DiBiase: There's one problem, Cody. I asked the gm to make it a US championship match. Good luck, Cody.
Cody looks very furious and seems like he regretted all of what he said.
Match 1 -- Cody Rhodes vs. Ted DiBiase
Randy Orton comes to the ring for a first-class seat that overlooks the match. Ted makes his entrance and soon Cody makes his entrance. As soon as Cody entered the ring, both of these men started delivering blows to each other. After a very brutal match, both of the men go to the outside, where Cody deliberately nails Ted with a chair shot. Cody loses the match, but he still is the champion. Cody smiles as he is about to deliver a chair shot to a lifeless DiBiase. However, Orton quickly jumps over the barricade and gets the chair from Rhodes. Both of them argue until Rhodes leaves the ring. Medics put DiBiase on a stretcher.
There's only a week left until Summerslam, and there is not yet a WWE title match. Vince McMahon announces what he has planned for Summerslam...
Vince McMahon: The contender for the WWE Championship will be...Triple H. There will also be an United States Championship match. The number one contender for the United States Championship will be HBK.
The screen now focuses on Cody Rhodes backstage, who looks very frustrated. He starts talking to himself.
Cody Rhodes: They can't do this to me, HBK didn't even deserve a title shot. Wh...
Randy Orton, who seemed like he came from nowhere, starts talking to Rhodes.
Randy Orton: Look Cody, I know me and you haven't been best of friends as of late, but we're still the Legacy. See, both of us hate DX, so both of us should try to dispose of DX.
Randy Orton and Cody Rhodes continue talking until the screen fades to black.
Summerslam has finally arrived. The next match in announced...
Match 1 -- Cody Rhodes vs. Shawn Micheals
HBK goes for the Sweet Chin Music and hits it on Rhodes. However, Randy Orton quickly runs into the ring and delivers a very devastating RKO. After Orton leaves the ring, DiBiase comes down and attacks Rhodes. After pounding Rhodes, DiBiase puts HBK on top of Rhodes. HBK wins the match and becomes US champ, but it seems that Rhodes is not worried about that. Rhodes runs to the backstage, in search of DiBiase.
Main event -- Randy Orton vs. Triple H
Triple H wins the match after the pedigree and becomes WWE champion.
Cody Rhodes calls out Ted DiBiase, but Randy Orton comes out instead.
Randy Orton: I interfered in your match, but where were you in the WWE Championship match?
Cody Rhodes: I was chasing that bastard, DiBiase.
DiBiase makes his way to the ring.
Ted DiBiase: What do you expect me to do after you hit me with a chair? Mow your lawn?
Randy Orton: Ted, Cody, this stupid quarell had cost us the WWE and US Championships. Let's finish this quarell and let's regain both of our championships.
Cody Rhodes: Fine, fine. I'm sorry Ted, about all this nonsense.
Ted DiBiase: It's okay, let's just regain the titles.
Randy Orton: Good good, that's the spirit. Now Rhodes, invoke your rematch clause and put DiBiase in the mix. I'll invoke mine, and you guys will be my managers for the WWE title match.
All of them leave the ring and prepare for their matches.
Match 1 -- Ted DiBiase vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Shawn Micheals
While destroying HBK, DiBiase accidentaly clotheslines Rhodes. Rhodes immediately thought that DiBiase was trying to backstab him, and quickly started attacking DiBiase. Both men continously fight, until Rhodes hits the Cross Body. However, HBK quickly nails Rhodes with the Sweet Chin Music and then pins Rhodes for the win.
Main event -- Randy Orton w/ Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes vs. Triple H
As Randy makes his entrance there is no sign of Ted or Cody. Triple H quickly attacks a stunned Orton and hits the pedigree on him. Triple H pins Orton and defends his championship.
After the match, Orton picks up a microphone.
Randy Orton: Rhodes! DiBiase! Get your asses here right now.
Both of them seperately enter the ring.
Cody Rhodes: That was the last straw. I can never team up with DiBiase ever again.
Ted DiBiase: Same thing for me, it seems that Legacy has to take out the trash.
Cody Rhodes: It's pretty obvious who's the trash.
Randy Orton: Enough of this. I'm not choosing any of you over the other.
Ted DiBiase: I'm sorry Orton, but I can't team up with Rhodes. He screws up every time.
Cody Rhodes: I have had enough of this too. Orton, pick either one of us, or none.
Randy Orton remains speechless while Rhodes and DiBiase continue fighting.
I'll be stopping this here for now. Stay tuned to see what happens next.
October 20, 2009
Without further dudes, let's get part 3 finished for y'all.
Teddy Long is out in the ring with Vince McMahon.
Teddy: Okay, playas. Here's the deal. Now I know that Randy Orton isn't behind these attacks, and I know that the Undertaker isn't behind these attacks. So, since Orton seems to be uninvolved in the majority of the attacks, I've decided to give him his spot in the tournament. On the condition that his match is tonight, and it will be against the Undertaker.
Vince: Need I remind you that you're still on probation? You'll have to do better than that.
Teddy: Alright then. Tonight, it will be the Undertaker vs. Randy Orton, and it will be for Randy's WWE Title. That match is our main event.
Orton comes out to the ring, looking pissed off.
Orton: How dare you make me defend my title against the Undertaker? I asked for a spot in the tournament, not a chance to lose my title.
Teddy: All the more motivation to win tonight, playa.
Orton: You win this round, Teddy.
Orton leaves the ring to get ready for the match.
Match #1 -- Orton vs. Taker
Orton makes his way out to the ring, and so does Taker. The ref is about to call for the bell, when Kane's music hits. Kane walks out, with Teddy Long in tow.
Teddy (visibly nervous): I-I have just been informed that the Undertaker will no longer have to compete in his own tournament. We ha-have found a replacement for him. However, the match will no longer be for the WWE Title.
The lights go out, and there is a crack of lightning that hits the stage. A rock version of "O Fortuna" starts playing, and the lights come back on, but only enough to make things barely visible. A dark figure makes his way down the ramp, along with Kane. They get to the ring, and the lights come back on.
The dark figure removes his hood to reveal a young man with dark features and very intense eyes. He has about the same stature and build of a young Undertaker. Taker looks absolutely stunned. They stare at one another for a couple of seconds, then Taker just backs out of the ring in silence.
Match #1.2 -- Orton vs. Mystery Dude
Mystery Dude locks up with Orton, and MD slams him to the mat. The match goes back and forth for a while, but MD picks up the win. Orton looks kinda surprised, but is just glad the title wasn't on the line.
Undertaker is in the ring to start off the show.
Taker: Brother, last week you brought someone from my past into the picture. You brought up demons that should have been left to rest. Kane, you need to make your intentions clear.
Kane makes his way to the ring.
Kane: My intentions? My intentions are none of your concern. All you need to know is that I have found your successor. You're growing old, and weak. It's time for you to step aside and disappear into the mists of history.
Taker: Old, perhaps. But you will see that I am stronger than ever. With age comes wisdom, something you are clearly lacking.
Kane: Brother, you are growing weak. whther you admit it or not, I can see it in your eyes. They don't have the same intensity as they once did. Your face is withering. You're a shell of your former self.
Taker: I'm through with talking. If I'm so weak, why don't you prove it in a match tonight?
Kane: Your funeral, old man.
The show cuts to commercial. When it returns, we learn that CM Punk vs. Mystery Dude will be the main event.
Match #1 -- Kane vs. Taker
Taker wins after hitting a Tombstone on Kane. Good match, if not a little short.
Match #2 -- Punk vs. MD
Punk has MD up for the GTS, but MD slips out. MD hits an inverted suplex-to-sitout-piledriver manouvre. He pins Punk for the win.
MD grabs a mic.
MD: You abandoned me as a child. Now I have returned to take my revenge on you. I am the true prince of darkness. At Wrestlemania, father, I will take my rightful place on your throne.
The announcers are in stunned silence. Most of the crowd is slack-jawed. Nobody can believe that this is Taker's son.
Taker's son is in the ring. The only light is shining on him.
Taker's Son: Father, it is time for you to step aside and let me take my place as your successor. Like it or not, I am your son. Your blood flows in my veins. I can feel you pulsing through me, and it disgusts me. I made a vow that I would never become like you. But genetics had other plans. Now, here I am. If I cannot vanquish you from me, I will vanquish you from this world.
You have gotten soft in your old age. Become weak. In nature, when and elder becomes too weak and becomes a burden on it's herd, it is sent off to die and gets replaced. I'm here to do what nature intended. Something you failed to do yourself.
You are a burden on the WWE, and this sunday, I will send you off to die.
Taker appears on the screen, sitting in a large, ornate throne.
Taker: I abandoned you beause I deemed you unworthy to be my heir. I have not stepped aside because there is nobody worthy of taking my place. They are all either too arrogant, or too weak in spirit to succeed me.
As you know, I am undefeated at Wrestlemania. If you should beat me, I will make you my heir and leave you my throne.Should you lose, you will be banished from my life and the WWE forever. Those are the terms. Be prepared.
The screen goes dark. Taker's son is joined in the ring by Kane.
Kane: I am the only relative who has been there for you over the years. This will be no exception. I will train you to become worthy of his throne. When you do take it over, I will be there as your advisor, your mentor. Together, we can send him into the darkness.
It's finally here. It's time to determine who is the greater family member.
Taker's sone is in the ring first, with a grand entrance that rivals that of Taker's. Kane is by his side.
Undertaker make shis entrance. He is carried out on his throne by a group of druids. He is wearing what looks like royal attire, except black. There is a matching crown. He takes them off and drapes them over them over the throne, along with the crown.
The match gets underway. It's extremely even, with lots of false finishes. The end comes nearly 30 minutes later, when Taker's Son (sorry I don't have a good name) hits his finisher. According to the announcers, it's called the Demon Driver.
Taker gets up, and grabs a mic.
Taker: It seems as though I may have misjudged you. It seems that you are indeed worthy of my throne. Now, you may take your place as my rightful heir.
Taker and his son both exit the ring, and Taker places the robe on his son. He sits down in the throne and Taker sets the crown on his head. Then Taker kneels down and does this thing. His son's music starts playing, and Taker disappears in a puff of smoke.
Sorry for the long delay in finishing this off. Hope it was worth the wait.
October 17, 2009
Anyways, Vafa, if you're reading this: I think we should bounce storylines back and forth for the longer ones. I do a part, you do a part, etc. I also like your idea of using the ACA WOTM. Good finish to part 2, man. Keep it up.
Just to keep you informed...
Match #1 -- Eric Escobar vs. Edge
As the announcer announces the match, there is no sign of either Edge or Escobar. Now, the camera focuses on the Titantron, where we can see that Edge and Escobar are lying in the floor.
Match #2 -- Mike Knox vs. Batista
Batista makes his entrance, however, Knox is nowhere to be found. Batista wins by default.
Theodore Long makes his way to the ring and picks up a microphone.
Theodore Long: Okay, okay. This has turned into complete chaos. I am tired of superstars being attacked backstage constantly. However, I can't force superstars into the ring. Since tons of superstars are being attacked backstage, we must advance to the quarter-finals just because of lack of superstars. There's one problem though, there are only seven wrestlers. Since it's an odd number, we need one more wrestler. Since I'm pretty sure that The Undertaker had some kind of involvement in the backstage attacks, so for the main event, The Undertaker will temporarily participate in this tournament and will take on Batista. However, The Undertaker will stop participating as soon as we find a replacement.
Good luck to all of you in No Way Out, playa's.
No Way Out:
Match #1 -- Swagger vs. Jackson
Swagger defeats Jackson via dq after Jackson keeps on punching Swagger.
Chris Masters comes to the ring and brings a microphone to the ring.
Masters: John Morrison, you think you're the goods. You think you're in perfect shape? Let's see about that. Before our match, let's have a Masterlock challenge. We'll exactly...
Masters is interrupted by John Morrison who doesn't say a word and heads to the ring. An official brings a chair into the ring and unfolds it. Morrison sits on it and Masters stretches a bit. Masters locks on the Masterlock and soon, Morrison seems like he's in hot water and is soon out cold. Morrison loses the challenge, however, the match didn't even start. The bell goes, and all Masters does is pin Morrison.
Match #2 -- Sheamus vs. CM Punk
Punk wins after a GTS.
Main event -- The Undertaker vs. Batista
Batista makes his entrance, however, The Undertaker is knocked out backstage. Batista wins by forefeit again.
The screen focuses on Theodore Long, who is in his office.
Theodore Long: This is enough. After tonight's main event, I'll find out who is behind the attacks. It's a gurantee.
Screen fades to black.
After the main event finishes, Theodore Long's music hits and he enters the ring with a microphone.
Theodore Long: That is it. I've had enough of this. Whoever you are, come out right now and...
Randy Orton's music hits and he enters the ring. He picks up a microphone.
Randy Orton: I attacked The Undertaker. I was thinking, why didn't they put me in the tournament? I am the Legend Killer after all. I deserve to face The Undertaker.
Theodore Long: Well, sorry playa. The semi-finals are already announced. Swagger versus Masters and CM Punk versus Batista.
Randy Orton: Are you kidding me? You fit two jobbers and one crazy lunatic on steriods who's got more muscle than brain? Honestly, CM Punk is the only one who deserves to be there, but even he is not remotely close to the greatness of me or The Legacy. Theodore Long, I will continue attacking your superstars, until I am put in the tournament.
Randy Orton leaves the ring.
Theodore Long appears on screen.
Theodore Long: The tournament shall continue with one of the semi-finals played tonight, and the other played next week. Good luck to all of you, playas.
Main event -- Swagger vs. Chris Masters
Swagger and Masters are shown backstage, both lying on the ground.
Theodore Long enters the ring with a microphone, looking very furious.
Theodore Long: RANDY ORTON! You dare to interfere again? Come out here, right now!
Randy Orton's music hits and he enters the ring with a microphone.
Randy Orton: I may be the Legend Killer. I may be the Viper. I may have attacked The Undertaker. But this time, I swear I wasn't near them...
Theodore Long: Do you think I'm a fool, Orton? You surely...
The lights are turned off. When they are turned on again, both Long and Orton are lying on the floor.
Theodore Long comes to the ring with a microphone.
Thedore Long: I have suspended Randy Orton and The Undertaker tonight. Therefore, the semi-final will not be disrupted tonight. Good luck to all of you, playas.
Main event -- CM Punk vs. Batista
After a back and forth match, the lights go off again. When they're turned on again, both men are on the floor. Batista, though, is bleeding. CM Punk manages to put an arm on Batista. CM Punk, slowly but joyfully, celebrates his win.
This time, Theodore Long doesn't enter the ring, Vince McMahon enters instead and gets a microphone.
Vince McMahon: It seems like the same thing every single week. Theodore Long comes out and says some crap about interference. Now, I know that Randy Orton and The Undertaker both were suspended. We are investigating who was behind all this. Now, we only have two more weeks until Wrestlemania, so we cannot delay the tournament at all. The investigation will take place, but it won't postpone the match. To counter interference, this match will be held in a Steel Cage.
Vince McMahon leaves the ring.
Main event -- Jack Swagger vs. Chris Masters
Swagger wins after a very hard fought battle.
I bet some of you didn't expect it was me, eh? It was the second generation grunge kid posting here for his first time. Either me or Nic will continue week 13, week 14, week 15 and Wrestlemania in Part 3 of this fantasy storyline.
October 16, 2009
The matches for the second bracket are announced as Kane vs. Sheamus and CM Punk vs. Triple H
Match #1 -- Kane vs. Sheamus
Sheamus pulls out an upset win after countering a Chokeslam.
Match #2 -- CM Punk vs. Triple H
CM Punk wins after Trips tears his quadriceps again.
Matches: Eric Escobar vs. Edge and Mike Knox vs. Batista
I'm ending this here for now, and I'm going to let Vafa finish this off if he likes. If not, I'll finish it off next week.
As you can tell, I came out victorious and Vafa was gracious in defeat. He now joins me as a writer. Welcome to the ACACT Vafa, and sorry for crushing your blog. I just didn't want to competition.
Hope you all enjoy what he brings to the ring,

October 7, 2009
This year, we have a new PPV debuting called Bragging Rights. It's supposed to be a SD vs. Raw concept (Survivor Series, anyone?). The Raw main event is our favourite bag of shit, John Cena vs. Randy Orton in an Ironman match.
The only upshot of seeing Cena make Orton look bad for an entire hour is that Cena may leave Raw at the end.
If it were me doing the booking (and God willing some day I will be), I would do it like this:
First off, we need to get rid of the ridiculous Cena/Orton promo from Raw. Gone. Tossed. Instead of having Cena come out and demand his rematch, Orton will just flat out tell Cena that this is how things are going down, and if he wants his rematch, he'll have to abide by his terms.
For the stipulation itself, I would go one step further and say that Cena must leave Raw, AND is not allowed to challenge for ANY title for one full year. He can't compete in the Royal Rumble, he's not allowed in Money in the Bank, absolutely no #1 contender's matches.
Now, in all fairness, we need some kind of stipulation for Orton, since we want this to actually seem like something is being put on the line. I think that Orton should be putting up his spot in Legacy. They're holding him back, anyways.
Now the PPV rolls around, and Orton is in the ring holding John Cena's Raw contract. He says that if Cena doesn't win, he will rip this up right in front of him.
The match starts (I'll spare you the hour-long descriptiona nd cut right to the chase) and near the end things are all tied up at 3 falls each.
Cena has Orton up for an FU/whatever the new even gayer name is, but Orton counters and drops into an RKO. The closing seconds of the match see Orton pin Cena. 1....2..... oops, time's up.
Now, Orton, instead of being irate, has an evil smirk on his face. He grabs a mic and Cena's contract. He says that well, Cena didn't win, so he's tearing up his Raw contract. Furthermore, the other stipulation is that Cena is no longer allowed to have any contact with any title picture for one full year effective immediately.
The next night on Raw, Orton is in the ring with Legacy, boasting about how he's kicked Cena off Raw. Cena interrupts, and says that hey, Orton didn't win either. So he has to give up his spot in Legacy.
Orton says he could care less about those 2 talentless nobodies. They're holding him back, wasting his time.
So now Orton banishes Rhodes and his butt-buddy from the ring, and now we have Orton by himself as a top dog without any restraints. Perhaps when Edge returns we'll see Rated RKO reform.
Tune in....some time.... for the finish to the Undertaker's last storyline.
September 11, 2009
We are not dead.......yet. If that does happen, I'll let you all know, but for now, we're still going.

August 4, 2009
"Yo man ya 2 sick jst crazy"

"john cena is so cool your mum will wake up and her cloeths will be out off fasion"

"You are the best wrestling,you are my favorit!Go John Cena Go......."
-- John Cena is so powerful that you can now use verbs as adjectives to describe his awesomeness? I guess this is why Cena fans have such bad grammar
"0mg! CENA! IM ACUALY TAWKN 2 U! 0MG 0MG 0MG! I S00000 L0VE U!"
-- I d0n't kn0w where t0 begin with this 0ne....Aside fr0m y0ur gratuit0us use of zer0's as o's, you really think you're talking to John Cena? How blonde are you?

-- You want to grow up to have John Cena's rock hard "hero" in your ass? You may want to get some therapy for that.
"Just wanted you to know that my 14 yr old son has a rare genetic disorder and HE is YOUR biggest fan!"
-- Ladies and gentlemen: we now have a genetic link between Cena fans and diseases! Call the WHO before it's too late!
"luv ur acting,ur appearance,ur smack.ur are my wrestler 4 life cos they can see u."luv u""
-- I knew it! Cena IS a drug dealer!
"Check out your mini-me. He had a blast seeing you at Night of Champions...can't wait for Summerslam"
-- Let me get this straight: you were staring at his package while it was blasting at NOC? You have issues.
"My 8-year-old son had a blast seeing John wrestle live. He bought the 12 Rounds movie that was autographed. Awesome action-packed movie. I'm so glad he was able to experience his first live wrestling with his daddy and his uncle."
-- Ma'am, I hate to break it to you, but your son is gay. I think it may have to do with the fact that his father is your brother.
"Helo john cena i am a huge fan of u i dnt thnk u wl gt a bigger fan thn me i got al of ur pics up 0n my hole in my ro0m i am a wwe lover"
-- Cena pictures on your hole, eh? Well, Cena's dick is so small that you couldn't tell the diference between it and a peice of paper...
That's all for now, tune in tomorrow (or thursday, whenever I have time) for the finish of Fantasy Storylines.
July 30, 2009
Undertaker is in the ring, talking about how for the last 2 decades he's reigned over the WWE as the most dominant force at Wrestlemania. So far, there has been no person able to beat him. Many have tried, and all have failed. This year will be no different.
However, this year there will be a tournament to determine who will face the Deadman. Over the next several weeks, there will be qualifying matches, with the winners advancing in the tournament.
The matches start next week, and everyone should be ready for a match, as they will only be announced on the night of each show.
The qualifying matches are announced as Jack Swagger vs. MVP and Evan Bourne vs. Primo.
Match 1: Swagger vs. MVP
The match is a good back and forth match, with Swagger eventually pulling out the win.
Match 2: Bourne vs. Primo
Another great match, Bourne picks up the victory.
This week, it's Dolph Ziggler vs. Chris Jericho and Vladimir Kozlov vs. Ezekiel Jackson
Match 1: Ziggler vs. Jericho
Jericho beats Ziggler in a semi-squash.
Match 2: Kozlov vs. Jackson
Jackosn defeats Kozlov in a great big man match.
Undertaker is in the ring again, and says that the tournament is progressing well. It's shaping up to be a great match, no matter who he faces. As for the matches this week, we have Matt Hardy vs. Christian and John Morrison vs. R Truth.
Match 1: Hardy vs. Christian
Hardy wins after a questionable manoeuvre.
Match 2: Morrison vs. Truth
The match is going pretty well, with lots of back and forth action. Suddenly, the lights cut out, and when they come back on, both men are laid out in the ring, with nobody else around. Morrison is able to drape an arm across Truth to get the win.
A video plays, with the message "Wrestlemania, it all begins again" showing.
The matches are announced for the next bracket of the tournament, and it's Swagger vs. Bourne, Jericho vs. Jackson, and Hardy vs. Morrison.
Undertaker comes out to ringside, and stays there for the entire night.
Match 1: Swagger vs. Bourne
Swagger beats Bourne, despite Bourne coming very close to winning
Match 2: Jericho vs. Jackson
Jackson wins via countout.
Match 3: Hardy vs. Morrison
Before the match starts, we find out that Hardy has been attacked and will not be able to compete. Officials are scrambling to find a replacement, but nobody can be found. Morrison advances by forefeit.
The next tournament bracket is set to begin, with Chris Masters vs. Rey Mysterio and Jeff Hardy vs. the Miz.
Match 1: Masters vs. Rey Rey
Masters makes Rey pass out from the Masterlock.
After the match, the lights go out, and when they come back on, both men are in the middle of the ring, out cold.
Match 2: Hardy vs. Miz
Miz wins after Hardy smokes too much weed and botchesa Swanton.
Again, both men get levelled after the lights mysteriously go out. The video package from the Rumble airs again, and it's really starting to creep people out.
This is where I sign off for this week. Stay tuned for Part 2 next week.
July 21, 2009
There you go, hope you enjoyed this thrilling conclusion.
Just kidding, here's the full finish:
Undertaker and Chris Jericho are putting on a clinic. There are several false finishes, with submissions being reversed at every turn. The men beat one another senseless, and it's getting harder for them to lock in their submissions. They are getting tired, the match has been going on for 15 minutes now.
Undertaker goes for the Hell's Gate one more time in a last ditch effort to finish the match. Jericho is somehow able to roll through it into the Walls!
Undertaker is able to get to the ropes, but Jericho does not break the hold. Jericho holds on for dear life, he's not letting Taker get away that easily. Eventually, he has to release to rest his arms. Undertaker goes after Jericho, who rolls out of the ring for a breather. While the ref is trying to get him back into the ring, Edge jumps the crowd barrier.
He clobbers Taker with a Spear. There is no way that Taker will be able to recover. This match is all Jericho's now. Just then, the lights flicker, and "Death" is in the ring, standing over Taker. "Death" somehow breathes life back into Taker, and disappears in another puff of smoke.
Taker sits up, and looks like a man possessed. Jericho is now back in the ring, with a chair. Taker charges, but Jericho catches him with a Codebreaker using the chair, driving it into Taker's head. He then takes the chair and wraps it around one of Undertaker's legs.
Jericho yanks back, using a modified version of the Walls. Being a submission match, there is no DQ, so this is all legal. The ref can only watch and ask Taker is he's going to tap. Taker resists for as long as possible, but eventually gives in.
He taps, and Jericho is pronounced the winner. Edge climbs back into the ring, and looks at Jericho, who has no idea what's going on. You can see them having an argument, but nobody can make out what they're saying.
The show goes off the air with them still bickering.
Next week, I'll give you another Undertaker Storyline.
July 12, 2009
PS -- Since Taker is such a big name, I'm going to do 2 big storylines for him. But the second one will have to wait until I'm done the first one. I don't want to confuse you guys.
July 10, 2009
Chris Jericho is in the ring, proclaiming that the Walls of Jericho is the greatest submission hold in the history of the WWE. Sharpshooter, Sleeper, Camel Clutch, none of them can hold a candle to the Walls.
This has been going on for a couple of weeks now, and it's getting on fan's nerves.
Just then, the lights go out. they come back on to Jericho in the ring, coughing up blood. There is nobody to be seen, just a bloodied Jericho. Medics race out and load him onto a stretcher. They wheel him up the ramp to the back.
Later on in the show, the announcers say that Jericho has been taken to the hospital for further treatment.
Jericho is back, and he has a bandage over his throat. He sounds very hoarse. He says that what happened last week will not go unpunished, and that he demands the persons responsible come out to the ring.
Nobody answers, but the arena goes dark again. A video starts playing, with ominous music. The words "Summerslam" and "Hells Gates open" flicker on the screen. Just as quickly as it started, it ends. The lights come back on, and there's a dark figure standing on the stage. He points at Jericho, then disappears in a puff of smoke.
Jericho is in the ring yet again, and he says that he's not scared. He isn't afraid of whoever is doing this. He isn't afraid of a coward who can't show his face. Once more, the lights go out. This time, they come back on and the dark figure is in the ring with Jericho. The figure once again points at Jericho, who attempts to attack him. Jericho goes for a spear, but only gets an arm full of robe.
The figure is gone, and Jericho is in shock. He really thought he had him that time.
This week, Jericho isn't playing around. No more hiding, no more attacks, he demands to see who is behind this right now. A video similar to the first one starts playing, and when it ends, Undertaker is in the ring behind Jericho.
The men lock up, and Jericho drops Undertaker with a Codebreaker, and then locks in the Walls of Jericho. Security tries to separate the men, and when they're finally pulled apart, 'Taker rolls his eyes and makes the cut throat gesture to Jericho.
Jericho is in a match against John Morrison. The match is quite a good one, and Jericho tries to end it with a Walls of Jericho. Morrison taps after a minute or so, and it's all over. Jericho yells out "you're next Undertaker"
Later on, it's now Taker in a match against Finlay. Undertaker has Finlay up for a Tombstone, but wait... he sets him down? Undertaker drops Finlay with a big boot, and locks in the Hell's Gate. Finlay taps almost instantly.
Jericho now makes his way onto the ramp. The men stare down, each one shooting daggers at the other. The lights go out again, and the dark figure appears in the place of Undertaker. The figure points at Jericho yet again.
The lights go off again, and when they come back on Jericho is all alone on the stage.
Undertaker is in the ring, in full Deadman attire. There's the standard "Undertaker blue" lighting, where almost everything is completely blued out.
Undertaker tells Jericho that he has called on death itself to help bring Jericho down. For far too long Jericho has been strutting around like he owns the place. It's time for that to end. In 2 weeks at SummerSlam, Jericho and Undertaker will meet in a submission match. There is also one more stipulation: Whoever loses is no longer allowed to use their submission hold.
Jericho appears on the screen, and accepts. He wants to add his own little clause to the match: there is to be no physical contact between the 2 men before SummerSlam. If one of them does initiate contact, they will automatically lose the right to use their submission hold.
Taker agrees. The match is set. Suddenly, the lights go out on the screen and Jericho is plunged into darkness. The lights are back on, and the dark figure is standing behind Jericho. Undertaker says that while he may not be able to touch Jericho, death can touch anyone.
"Death" proceeds to attack Jericho, and then diappears in a puff of smoke.
This week, Undertaker is in action against CM Punk. Jericho joins the announce team at ringside. The match is going great, when Edge runs in and attacks Taker. Jericho takes a mic and says that while he can't touch Taker, Edge can.
Jericho tells the Undertaker that this is only a small taste of what's going to happen at SummerSlam. Jericho says that we will never again see the Hell's Gate in the WWE. the show ends with Edge and Jericho standing over the Undertaker.
This is it: SummerSlam. We're here tonight to determine who has the most dominant submission hold in the WWE. BUT: I'm not gonna finish this just yet. I'm going to give you readers a chance to vote on who wins, and then write the match based on your votes.
Til next week,
July 9, 2009
Merge Raw and SD into one roster. I'll explain my plan for ECW later, but for now, we'll start with this. Viewers will still see SD and Raw air every week. The titles will still be unique as well. EG: WWE Champion Randy Orton can compete on Smackdown, but his title will only ever be defended on Raw or on PPV.
This opens up a world of new feuds, but still gives you a reason to watch both shows. It also gives more time to build up feuds, which is needed in some cases. This is good for both the fans and the company, because the fans get to see some new things, and ratings for both shows should go up.
As for the titles, here's the breakdown:
WWE Championship (With a new design, that spinner is God awful)
United States Championship
Unified Tag Titles (with it's own belt design instead of 2)
Hardcore Title (under 24/7 rules)
Women's Title (merged with the Diva's title)
Get rid of Superstars. There's no need for a third show. It's a waste of money to have 3 shows going with the same roster. Save the money and put it into hiring some new talent.
Speaking of new talent, make ECW the developmental show. Give the young guys a chance to get screen time without being buried by top dogs. ECW will be completely separate from Raw and SD, with it's own World and Tag titles. It'll also get expanded to 2 hours, because it's just too short otherwise.
Granted, all 3 shows will use the same refs, and ring announcer. As for commentary, put King and JR back together for Raw and Smackdown, and have Striker and Matthews stay on ECW.
Now that the weekly shows are done, it's time for PPV's. Alternate between Raw/SD, ECW, and tri-branded. So every third PPV would be one of the "big 4": WM in March, Summerslam in June, Survivor Series in September, and then the RR in December. Bit of a change, but I think it'll do some good.
As for having the ECW PPV's separate, see the above step about screen time. As for naming the PPV's that's not important right now. Now, since ECW is it's own separate entity and do not appear on Raw or SD, we need to give them that chance.
At the Royal Rumble, there will be an "Extreme Rumble" taking place between all ECW talent. the winner gets a spot on the main Raw/SD roster.
You're probably wondering about how Money in the Bank is going to work. It'll be exactly the same. ECW superstars will be included, and the contract is good for any title at any time for one year.
New management. Even though the rosters are no longer separate, the shows still need their own leaders.
Raw: I like Shane for this. Kind of a passing of the torch from father to son. Vince will still be the chairman.
Smackdown: Bring back Eric Bischoff. I loved his style. He could really play a good management type on air.
ECW: 3 guesses who I want to see. Give up? Paul Heyman. 'Nuff said.
New format for the WWE Draft. Since the rosters are now merged, there's no possible way to draft between them. So, superstars will be drafted from ECW to the main roster. Matches will still determine who gets to choose. GM's will pick their representatives for each match (like the hair vs. hair match at WM 23). The winning GM gets to choose who they want on the main roster.
It'll still be scripted, but it'll seem like they have a choice. But how will ECW get new talent? Like this: Throughout the night, there will be matches between 4-6 developmental talents, and whoever wins gets a spot on the ECW roster.
I think that about does it. If I come up with anything else, I'll add it.
