Fantasy Storylines -- Shadow of the Legacy, Part 1

As I have promised earlier, I will be starting a storyline involving the ACA WOTM voting, Cody Rhodes. Without a further a do, I will start off with the storyline.

Week 1:

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.

Week 2:

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.

Week 3:

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.

Week 4:

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.

Week 5:

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.

Until then,
