WWF: The Journey From Attitude

Recommended Posts

Well Hi,


I’m a massive dynasty follower but a terrible Picture Guy.


This will be a text based dynasty and I just hope the writing is decent enough that you guys will follow.


The Dynasty starts from January 2001 and irl I’m up to April 2002 so there’s a journey to be told...


Couple of notes. It’s Raw only. No Smackdown, no Heat, none of the extra stuff that dilutes the stories and matches.


First Show to Be Up Straight Away.

WWF Presents RAW! January Week 1!


The first Raw of 2001 opens with Triple H. He’s back from his beating suffered at the hands of Stone Cold Steve Austin and isn’t a happy bunny. He wants Austin and he wants “his” WWF Title.


Austin is out to greet Triple H. He wishes him a Happy New Year and hopes he and his trashy wife had a great time kissing his father in laws ass! Austin charges the ring and H bails to the outside. “You want a fight tonight ya lil SOB, get ya Asshole lady to make it and I’ll see you soon, and that’s the bottom line.....etc”


Segment rating - A


Our first match of 2001 sees The Hardy Boyz up against Dean Malenko and Perry Saturn The experience of Malenko and Saturn is enough to ground The Hardyz for a good portion of the match. Unfortunately, Matt and Jeff are on somewhat of a roll at the moment, Jeff drops Saturn with a jawbreaker whilst Matt nails a Twist of Fate on Malenko, Jeff climbs up top....Swanton Bomb, it’s all over!


Segment rating - B-


The action isn’t over though asEddie Guerrero storms the ring and goes to town on both Hardyz giving Saturn and Malenko enough time to recover and join the attack. Saturn locks Jeff in The Rings and Eddie nails Jeff with the Frog Splash


Segment rating - C+


Kane makes his entrance for a tough assignment against.........Chaz. Unfortunately for the former Headbanger, the only head banging he was doing was when Kane slammed his skirt wearing behind (Lawlers words, not mine) straight to Hell! Kane wins.


Segment rating - D-


Chris Benoit v Billy Gunn


Our next match sees “The One” looking for a bit of revenge on the “Rabid Wolverine” for taking his IC title last month. Gunn takes the fight to Benoit for a good portion of the match but never really looks like winning the match, Benoit is on a bit of a hot streak at the moment and manages to take Gunn to the mat, locking in Crossface for the decisive win.


Segment rating - B-


We go backstage where Chris Jericho is chatting up some random lady, he tells her he’ll see her later. Saucy. As he goes to walk off he stops suddenly, looking perturbed. Paul Heyman enters the shot, obviously not part of ECW anymore. He smiles at Jericho and offers his hand. Jericho looks at it, knowing Heyman he’s not sure of what to make of it. Heyman leans into Jericho and says something. Whatever he says has an affect on Y2J. They part and Jericho looks troubled.


Segment rating - B+


Vince McMahon makes his entrance and strides down to the ring. He looks pleased and has an announcement to make. Kurt Angle is invited down to the ring. Your Olympic hero looks pleased as he enters the ring and shakes the hand of the Bossman, (not that one). Vince clears his throat. He thanks Angle for his hard work over the past three months, leading the company and beating all comers. Unfortunately, there’s one person he hasn’t beat. Not properly anyway.




The Undertaker appears at the top of the ramp. Angle looks distraught and it doesn’t get better as McMahon announces that next week, in this very ring, Angle will defend his title against The Undertaker!


Segment rating - B+


William Regalmakes his entrance for his European Title defence, looking as smug as ever, proudly displaying his title belt as he waves to the crowd. His opponent?


Steve Blackman


The lethal weapon takes it to Regal early, kicking the tar out of the Brit. A suplex attempt, however, is reversed and Regal takes control. He keeps Blackman grounded and constantly targets the head of Blackman with knees to the head, knocking Blackman silly. A comeback from SB is quickly cut off with yet another shot to the head, this time a forearm. Regal finally finished off Blackman with a running knee to the head and retains his title.


Segment rating - C-


We go backstage and see our beloved Tag Team Champions Edge and Christian with Terri. They taunt the Dudleyz, calling themselves the drawing card of the tag division and the gold standard, whilst the Dudleyz are nothing but out of fashion thugs.


Segment rating - C-


Steve AustinvsTriple H


Our main event gets underway with a brawl, both men swinging wildly, taking out months of frustration against each other. Austin takes control and punches H right out of the ring, following him out. Austin takes the brawl to H and slams him into various objects outside of the ring, the steps, announce desk and ring post all take turns on “The Games” skull. Austin rolls H back into the ring and stomps a mud hole in him in the corner. Austin turns to the crowd and riles them up. Of course they respond. Austin is in Control!


Austin continues the attack on H, this time taking a more technical attack. Suplexing and clotheslining H until H looks spent. He’s taking a solid 7/8 minutes of pure Rattlesnake venom and Austin doesn’t look like he’s tiring any time soon!


Austin drops a short elbow on H and then decides to do 3 more. The crowd roar their appreciation. Austin looks well on his way to getting the revenge he desires from the heinous attack H organised over a year ago. Austin takes H back out of the ring and starts to remove the Announce table monitors, clearly looking to put H through some wood.


Again, Austin bounces H around the ringside area. He lays him on the table and punches his face in. He climbs up top and sets up H for a vicious pile driver!


H struggled but Austin has him locked.


He lifts him up.




Austin drives H straight through the table with a pile driver. H looks done and Austin smirks, hurt but he doesn’t give a fudge. Austin stumbles back to his feet and climbs in the ring. The ref counts to ten and Austin gives H the fingers.


Steve Austin wins by countout

<p><strong>WWF Presents RAW! January Week 2!</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Big Show</strong> v <strong>Grandmaster Sexay</strong></p><p> </p><p>

First appearance from “The Worlds largest athlete” is a dominant one. He makes short work of the former Brian Christopher and drills him with a clothesline as the announcers talk up Show’s chances of winning the rumble. A point driven home by Show as he points to the Rumble sign, proudly hanging from the rafters.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment rating - D+</strong></p><p> </p><p>

“Bad Man” plays as Rikishi makes his way to the ring, he grabs a mic from a ringside technician and doesn’t look happy. He cuts a promo about being tossed from the edge of the Hell In A Cell by Undertaker and how Taker nearly cost him his career, his family and even his life. Rikishi is a bad man, don’t you know and he vows to be looking on with interest at tonight’s World Title match between Angle and Taker. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment rating - C</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Backstage we go where Jericho is being interview by Coach. Coach asks Y2J about Heymans conversation last week where he obviously got under the skin of Jericho. Jericho brushes it off, saying it’s no ones business what Heyman wanted. He’s just focused on kicking he limey Brit’s ass all over Texas tonight. If Heyman wanted to keep playing games with Y2J, he’d kick his ass too! Jericho looks focused as the camera switches to Regal making his entrance.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment rating - A*</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Chris Jericho</strong> v <strong>William Regal</strong> Non Title</p><p> </p><p>

A real clash of styles here, but in a good way. Regal’s technical brawling style matched up well with Jericho’s more flashy but still technical style. The match ebbed and flowed, Regal’s striking being countered by Jericho’s quickness. Regal seemed to be in control as we ticked past the 10 minute mark, pounding Jericho in the corner (<img alt=":o" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/redface.png.900245280682ef18c5d82399a93c5827.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" />). He turned and ran at Jericho only for Y2J to counter with a boot to the mush of Regal. Jericho followed up with a bulldog and and a middle rope moonsault for a close two! Jericho mounted Regal and started to go to town on Regal, taking out some unknown frustration on the Brit.</p><p> </p><p>

The ref managed to pull Jericho off and that was enough to give Regal time to recover and he chopped Jericho at the knee. Regal, quick as a flash ran the ropes and connected with the Knee Trembler, leaving Jericho out for the count. Regal waved to the crowd and went for the cover.....</p><p> </p><p>

1</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

2</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

Kick Out! Jericho somehow manages to roll his shoulder out. Regal was not happy, he drags Jericho to his feet and attempts a second knee trembler. Jericho catches Regal on the way in and sweeps him straight into the Lion Tamer!!! Regal, knowing he has nowhere to go, taps! Jericho with a big win!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment rating - B</strong></p><p> </p><p>

After that big match we cut to backstage and a smug <strong>Vince McMahon </strong>. There’s no real reason for him to be smug, that’s just Vince! He informs the crowd that after Austin’s dismantling of Triple H last week, Hunter won’t be here this week. He will however, have a chance at revenge at <strong>Royal Rumble</strong>. Not only will they both take part in the Royal Rumble Match but they will also go 1 on 1 in a street fight! He goes on to say that this feud has gone too far and it’s going to end up costing both of them their title aspirations. But, he says, “I don’t give a damn about you’re Title aspirations. You two going to war is making me a lot of God damn money and I love it”!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment rating - B+</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The Rock</strong> v <strong>Albert</strong></p><p> </p><p>

The crowd is absolutely electric, following both the last announcement and the first Raw appearance of “The Great One”. Rocky laps it up as Big Albert makes his way to the ring. This one is a bit of a brawl, Albert trying to use his size and power advantage to keep Rocky off his game. Rocky is determined though and battles through, beating Albert around the ring, hitting a spine buster and a People’s Elbow for a good win!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment rating - B-</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The Rock</strong> grabs the mic and the crowd roars. He announces himself into the Royal Rumble and informs each of the other 29 Jabroni’s that The Rock is going to lay the smackdown on each and every one of their candy asses! “If ya smelllllllllllll......”</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment Rating - B</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Backstage we go again, this time into the locker room of <strong>Chris Benoit</strong>, looking as intense as ever. His stare is interrupted though by the sleazy figure of <strong>Paul Heyman</strong>. Again, Heyman offers his hand and Benoit, with no real reason not to, accepts. Heyman, again leans in. Benoit, like Jericho, looks a tad puzzled as Heyman smiles and walks off.</p><p> </p><p>

What is Heyman planning?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment rating - B-</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Raven</strong> v <strong>Al Snow</strong> - Hardcore Title Match</p><p> </p><p>

Back to the ring we go as Raven takes on Al Snow. Both men are hardcore specialists and it shows as they batter each other relentlessly with garbage cans, stop signs, kendo sticks and trolleys. Ravens experience shows though as he ducks a chair shot and kicks Snow right in the nuts! Quick as a flash he grabs Snow and drives him downwards with the Evenflow. Raven retains!</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment rating - C+</strong></p><p> </p><p>

The locker room of <strong>Eddie Guerrero, Dean Malenko and Perry Saturn</strong> is our next visit as Coach has managed to grab a word. Eddie claims that the three of them are the absolute best wrestlers in wrestling today. Yet they’re not appreciated. The Hardyz get all the crowd reaction, all the merch whilst “us three, ese” are left with the scraps. “that’s about to change homes. You see, me and my buddies here, my hombres, we’re gonna kick your ass and show anyone that matters, that WE....are wrestling”</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment rating - C-</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Eddie Guerrero</strong> v <strong>Jeff Hardy</strong></p><p> </p><p>

The ringside area is full for this one with Matt and Lita supporting Jeff, whilst Malenko, Saturn and Terri are in the corner of a determined looking Eddie. And it’s eddie who takes the early lead in this one, doing his best to keep Jeff grounded, whilst showcasing his wrestling ability. Each time he takes Hardy down with a waistlock, or single leg takedown, he turns to the crowd and shouts “WRESTLING!”</p><p> </p><p>

Hardy does manage to stuff a takedown attempt by Eddie though and hits his patented jawbreaker. He builds up ahead of steam and takes down Jeff with 3 clothesline’s in succession. He sets up for a twist of fate and nails it! As he plays to the crowd in advance of going up top for The Swanton, Terri makes a move and drags Lita by her hair down to the floor. Matt is quick to rescue his lady but is quickly overwhelmed by Saturn and Malenko who beat on the elder Hardy. </p><p> </p><p>

This distraction, unfortunately for our heroes, is enough to let Eddie back into the game. He sneaks up behind Jeff and nails a back suplex, dropping Jeff hard onto the back of his neck. Quick as a flash, he drags him to his feet and nails a brainbuster. This isn’t the end though. Eddie goes up top.....Frogsplash! 1.2.3.</p><p>

It’s a tainted win, but certainly a win nonetheless. This group of theirs looks good so far in 2001.</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment rating - B-</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>The Dudley Boyz</strong> have sent in a pre tape. They respond to Edge and Christian from last week and inform them that at <strong>Royal Rumble</strong> they have another chance to take the Tag titles belonging to them in the first place. Not only that, it’s going to be a Tables Match!! </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment rating - C-</strong></p><p> </p><p>

A short video package plays showcasing <strong>Kurt Angle’s</strong> somewhat fortuitous Title reign, including the 6 way Hell In A Cell and the fluke Taker win at Survivor Series. King and J.R wonder how on earth Angle can survive again tonight. Surely there’ll be a new Champion?</p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment rating - B</strong></p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Kurt Angle</strong> v <strong>The Undertaker</strong> WWF Title Match</p><p> </p><p>

Big match feel here as Angle looks to use his superior speed to stay out of Takers grasp as long as humanly possible. It last all of 14 seconds though as Taker catches him and pummels him in the corner, leaving Angle lying on his ass. He drags Angle to his feet and makes him kiss each turnbuckle...twice! The crowd is going nuts as Taker continues to beat Angles ass up and down Houston Texas, Taker’s fellow Texans enjoying the possibility of a new, hometown champion. Taker throws up the horns to the roar of the crowd. </p><p> </p><p>

Big boot to Angle follows the snake eyes and The champ just hasn’t been able to get going yet. Taker slits the throat and drags Angle up for a choke slam, Angle out of desperation rakes the eyes and quickly goes downstairs, taking Taker out at the knee. This match has turned around!</p><p> </p><p>

Angle dominates here now as he uses his Olympic wrestling skills to work over Takers knee with a succession of strikes and a variety of painful looking holds. Taker is in big trouble here as we edge past 15 minutes. Angle locks on a figure four now as Taker literally writhes in pain! He is not a man that gives up though, and manages to get to the ropes as Angle fumes. Angle drops the straps and demands Taker gets to his feet, looking for the Olympic Slam. Taker struggles to his feet and, surely on instinct, throws a vicious back elbow as Angle comes forward, knocking Angle on his ass!</p><p> </p><p>

We reset now as Taker starts his comeback, albeit more gingerly than his earlier attack. Another snake eyes and another big boot though leave Taker firmly in control. The Chokeslam is nailed this time aswell. Angle is in big trouble!! Taker pulls Angle up and sets up for The Last Ride. Angle struggle against it but Taker muscles him up and drives him almost through the mat!!!!!!</p><p> </p><p>

He makes the cover..</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

1</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

2</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>

NO!</p><p> </p><p>

Where’s the ref??</p><p> </p><p>

We soon find out though. <strong>Rikishi</strong> has made an appearance!! He drags the ref out and punches him to the floor, following up with an ass to the chest! he’s destroyed Taker’s chance of winning the title! Taker is pissed! He charges after Rikishi but the “Bad Man” shows he’s smarter than the average Samoan and has left through the crowd, happy with his work and leaving Undertaker to fume on the entrance ramp. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Segment rating - B+</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Inside the Ring, Kurt Angle is in pain, but smiling. He’s done it again! </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>Glass Shatters!!!!!!</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Angle looks distraught as <strong>Steve Austin</strong> marches down to the ring. He and Taker share a look on the entrance ramp but Taker has no beef with Austin. Angle immediately drops to his knees and begs off as Austin stands over him. Austin looks to the crowd. They cheer. Of course. Austin extends his hand. Angle looks inquisitively at it, unsure as to whether to accept. Austin tells him to get up and shake his damn hand! He’s the champ, the champ deserves a handshake. Angle, somewhat buoyed by these surprising but kind words from Austin takes the hand and Austin drags him up and they shake! Austin slaps the belt and smiles. </p><p> </p><p>

<strong>STUNNER!!!!!</strong></p><p> </p><p>

Why oh why did Angle trust Austin! Austin has drilled the champ and picks up his belt. He looks at it and smiles, showing the crowd. They roar his approval as the show goes off the air, again with Stone Cold Steve Austin standing tall!</p><p> </p><p>

<p>Just a quick note re Prediction Contests.</p><p> </p><p>

There will be prediction contests run for each PPV but not for the weekly shows as there may likely be only a couple of matches where it won’t be obvious who is going to win.</p><p> </p><p>

Please bear with as there may be a few scattered thoughts in the early stages of this Dynasty. It will begin to become a lot more polished (hopefully) as I go and all the ground rules are established.</p><p> </p><p>

Thanks to everyone who’s taken the time to view and the one who commented...you’re a superstar!!</p><p> </p><p>

Week 3 Preview coming up this evening, UK time.</p>

Monday Night Raw! January Week 3!


Joe Louis Area, Detroit, Michigan.


Test v Billy Gunn v Val Venis


  • A key match here, with three wrestlers looking at getting their 2001 off to a good start. Gunn, off a disappointing loss to Chris Benoit earlier this year is looking to regain some upward momentum. Both Test and Val are jockeying for position, looking to breakout of the pack. This was the perfect chance for one of these to build some momentum and get themselves a favourable Rumble Draw. Ultimately, it was to be Test who picked up the win in this one. Nailing first Billy with a big boot and then the “Test Drive” on Val Venis for the win. He goes on to the Rumble and picks up the number 27 in the process. Surely he’ll be one to watch.


Segment rating - D+


  1. Raven is out next to cut a promo on his opponent tonight, Big Show. He tells Show that whilst he maybe bigger, and he may be stronger, intellectually he is no match for Raven. And tonight, he’ll prove it. “Quote the Raven”.


Segment rating - B



  • The Undertaker is the next man to air some grievances, via the medium of microphone. He tells Rikishi to get his “fat, Samoan ass” out here because he’s fixing to give him an American Bad Ass kicking. Out saunters Rikishi, looking confident but clearly unwilling to engage the angry Undertaker. A bit more verbal baiting from Taker though and a Rikishi rushes (kinda) the ring. The two men swap right hands, neither giving an inch. Rikishi sends Taker to the ropes but makes the mistake of dropping his head. Taker nails a massive DDT. He must’ve forgotten he was fighting a Samoan though as Rikishi pops straight back up! Taker is unflustered and kicks Rikishi straight in the nuts before lifting and driving Rikishi almost through the mat with a massive Chokeslam! Round one to The Undertaker.


Segment rating - B-


Raven v Big Show - Hardcore Title


  • Our next match is Hardcore action as Raven defends against Big Show. The match flows as expected, Show beating Raven around the ring whilst Raven tries, and fails to stop the Big man in his path with an assortment of foreign objects. Kendo sticks, stop signs and garbage cans are all used and have no effect on The “Worlds Largest Athlete”. Show continues the destruction. Whilst Raven is an excellent talker, his earlier promo seems to have angered Big Show. Everything he throws at Show is futile and in the end Show drills Raven with two massive Chokeslam’s and picks up both the win, and the Hardcore Title. How on earth is anyone going to take this away from him???


Segment rating - B-



Edge v Bubbah Ray Dudley


  • These two teams have been having quite the war of words this past couple of weeks. Here we see the two biggest talkers of each team go at it. Edge uses his quickness to take early control before Bubbah fires back with some power moves. Both Christian and D-Von look to get involved and both have an influence in this see saw match. Ultimately it would be Edge who picks up the win, taking advantage of the outside excitement to grab a roll up whilst holding the tights.


Segment rating - B-



  • Promo time again now as Chris Jericho makes his way to the ring. He cuts a promo about the Rumble and what it means to him. He’s overcome a lot here in the WWF already and is looking to make that next step. When he wins the Rumble he’s going to Mania and if it’s Kurt Angle he faces, he’s going to kick his Olympic Ass. Naturally this brings it out Our Olympic Hero to retort. He laughs off Jericho. He calls Jericho out of his league and hopes it is Jericho that wins the Rumble. Because IF he does, and WHEN Angle retains through to Mania, he’ll give Jericho a wrestling lesson.


Segment rating - A



  1. Our European Champion is out now with his special announcement. He informs his adoring public that he is aware they can’t get enough of him. In order to satisfy their demand he will be having a weekly open challenge, defending his “prestigious” European championship. Without further ado, lets get this party started,


William Regal v Tajiri


  • A debut here for the ex ECW wrestler Tajiri, making his debut here in the WWF. He gives Regal all he can handle, kicking the smug off his face. Regal however, manages to stay in fair control of the match and it becomes a bit of a strike off. Regal manages to avoid a Big roundhouse kick and smashes Tajiri with the knee trembler. A spirited effort from the debutant but the class of Regal proved too much.


Segment rating - C+



  • Promo time now as the collective of Dean Malenko, Eddie Guerrero and Perry Saturn make their way to the ring, ahead of Perry Saturn’s match with Jeff Hardy. The three are in confident mood and they each take their turn on the microphone to stress their wrestling abilities. Their wrestling, they agree, is the key to success. None of this flipping rubbish you get from The Hardyz. Eddie is more than animated and looks determined to put The Hardyz in their place.


Segment rating - C


Jeff Hardy v Perry Saturn


  • For much of this match, Perry manages to keep the younger Hardy grounded. Determined to prove that technical wrestling is the way to be successful here in the WWF, he keeps Jeff grounded for a good portion of the match. Unfortunately and again, Jeff is a determined soul and will not quit. He manages to turn the tables on Saturn and starts to fly around the ring, leaving Saturn dazed and more than a bit confused. Matt manages to keep the outside interference to a minimum, leaving Saturn vulnerable to. Twist of Fate and a Swanton for the decisive win.


Segment rating - B-


  • The Rock is backstage and has some words ahead of the main event tag match that is up next. The Rock is kind enough to provide us with words for each of the participants. He doesn’t give a crap about Austin and H, it isn’t his beef, but if either man wants to get involved in his business, he’ll lay the Smackdown on both of their candy asses! And as for Kurt Angle, come the Rumble, he will win. He will take back the title he lost in October and go on to main event Wrestlemania. “If ya smelllllll”


Segment rating - A*



The Rock and Steve Austin v Triple H and Kurt Angle


  • Big fight feel here as two massive matches at the Rumble collide. Austin and H look to tear each other apart, H still not fully recovered from the ass whooping he received on the first Raw of 2001. He puts in a good faith effort though and manages to keep Austin quiet for most of this...well brawl. It was never really a traditional tag match. The heat between the four too much for the regular confines of a standard match. H and Austin disappear up the walkway, both men trading big rights. This leaves Angle and Rock alone in the ring. Angle has had the better of this so far and looks to finish off a Rocky with an Olympic Slam. He scoops up Rocky but The Rock manages to shift his weight and lands behind Angle. Angle turns straight back round into a ROCK BOTTOM!!!! Rock picks up a huge win as we accelerate to the Rumble.


Segment rating - A


We sign off Raw with Rock standing tall over the fallen WWF Champion. Austin and H are nowhere to be seen. We have one more Raw until the Rumble. Will Austin and H re appear?

I've been awol for a few weeks so I've only just got around to reading this, I like your writing style....I'm glad I'm not the only one who appreciates a good old fashioned double entendre here and there <img alt=":D" data-src="//content.invisioncic.com/g322608/emoticons/biggrin.png.929299b4c121f473b0026f3d6e74d189.png" src="<___base_url___>/applications/core/interface/js/spacer.png" /> as I've said elsewhere this era was during my "lost years" of wrestling, so I always enjoy seeing where people take things. Keep up the good work and I'll keep reading

Good to see you back and thanks for reading, commenting.


You know how much I’ve enjoyed your work and I think our similar backgrounds in terms of areas show themselves in style. Double entrendres are the best!


I’ll keep on trucking, gotta say it makes it easier when you know people are interested! I also know that’ll take time

Monday Night Raw! January Week 4


TD Garden, Boston


  1. Six Man Action on Raw as Test and The Hardyz take on the disgruntled trio of Eddie Guerrero, Dean Malenko and Perry Saturn. Which style wins?


  • Chris Benoit is in action. Paul Heyman has announced he will have an offer for one or both of Chris Jericho and Chris Benoit. What could it be?


  • Big Men Collide as The Undertaker faces Rikishi in a no holds barred match. Taker is looking to get revenge on Kish after the Samoan cost Taker The WWF Title 2 weeks back.


  • Both Raven and William Regal have things to say. Raven doesn’t like Big Show and Regal doesn’t like anyone. What’s their beef this week?


  • Val Venis takes on XPac in a match between two wrestlers looking to gain traction. Both men will be looking to gain momentum heading into The Rumble.


  • Big Main Event Action as WWF Champ Kurt Angle teams up with his friends Edge and Christian. They’ll go head to head to head to head to head to head with The Rock and The Dudleyz. The challengers team will be looking to gain a psychological advantage heading into the title matches on Sunday.


  • We’ve had word that both Steve Austin and Triple H will be in the building. Triple H must be fuming after taking two ass kickings from The Rattlesnake already this year. How can H combat Steve Austin’s seemingly relentless assault. Both men are in the Rumble aswell as facing each other 1v1 in a Street Fight!




That’s the Raw coming up guys, should be posted in the next day or two.


Let me know any feedback you have, good, Bad or indifferent, all opinions welcome! Or any tweaks you’d like to see.

Royal Rumble Match - I'll pick Austin, he will bounce back after a Street Fight loss to HHH


Kurt Angle v The Rock - WWF Championship Match.


Edge and Christian v The Dudley Boyz- WWF Tag Team Title Match


William Regal’s Open European Challenge - Regal wins again, he's awesome

If HHH loses here too, he'll look like a pleb imo
