SHOCK: The Memorial Show | February 25th, 2006 | Live From: Montreal, Quebec, Canada | Commentators: Joey Styles & Don Callis
-[[ Once that shot fades away, the screen is filled with a shot of thousands of fans standing quietly.. The stage is filled with the entire Solid Gold Wrestling roster, all of them standing and turned toward the ring.. There is sadness in the eyes of some, but not many.. Most only have anger and a few of them check their wrist watches to see when this is going to be over.. Maria is standing in front of the crowd of wrestlers with a microphone in her hand.. She's wearing a black dress and a massive, black, wide rimmed hat with a black veil hanging down over her face... Jillian stands next to her, wearing her usual outfit.. Maria flips the veil over the top of her hat and speaks into a microphone.. ]]-
[ Maria ] Like.. Okay, everybody... It's time for that ten bell salutey thingy, I guess...
-[[ The fans boo and most of the wrestlers groan.. ]]-
[ Maria ] Sorry! I know it's boring and it's stupid and all that.. But it's just what you do when somebody dies~!!
-[[ No love for this.. The fans continue booing.. ]]-
[ Maria ] And besides, Taz being dead really makes me sad..
-[[ She pouts. ]]-
[ Maria ] Because he reminded me of Humpty Dumpty~!! He was shaped like a big, red egg!! And then Humpty, he fell off his wall and broke into a bunch of pieces and all the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put him together again!! Well.... That's like Taz.. When he got blowed up.. And his pieces went everywhere....
-[[ She shakes her head, pushing her bottom lip out like it's making her REALLY sad.. ]]-
[ Maria ] And we couldn't put him back together.. Really because we couldn't FIND all of his pieces....
-[[ She looks down at the floor, mumbling, still sad.. ]]-
[ Maria ] ...Because they got burned up in the fire...
-[[ She looks back up, smiling.. ]]-
[ Maria ] Anyway! Ring the bell!! YAY!! TEN BELL SALUTEY THINGY!!
-[[ Everyone boos as the bell begins sounding... ]]-
' Ding.... '
' Ding...... '
' Ding............. '
' Ding.................... '
' Ding......... '
-[[ And then Christian steps through the crowd, clutching his world championship belt, the one Taz never got close to, and takes the microphone out of Maria's hand.. He begins yelling into it before the next bell sounds.. ]]-
[ Christian ] STOP.. RIGHT THERE!!
-[[ Small pop for the interruption. ]]-
[ Christian ] No more bells, because as far as I'm concerned... Half of a salute is perfect.......
-[[ He looks into the camera, smiling.. ]]-
[ Christian ] For half.. Of a man!!
-[[ Christian turns, pushes Maria's veil and hair away from her ear.. He leans in close.. ]]-
[ Christian ] THAT MEANS HE'S SHORT!!
-[[ Christian laughs as Maria recoils, clutching her ear in pain.. ]]-
[ Christian ] Now, far be it for me, Captain Charisma, to disrespect a dead man.. But I think I speak for everyone in the crowd.. And everybody here on the ramp.. When I say forget about salutes and paying tribute to this guy... And LET'S GET ON WITH THE SHOW!!
-[[ Another small pop.. ]]-
[ Christian ] Because the faster we finish up with THIS... The faster we can get to the main event.. And even though I don't see eye to eye with Randy Orton, if he actually goes through with what he told me he was going to do tonight during the main event.... Then all of YOU, MY PEEPS... Are in for a real treat!!
-[[ He laughs and slaps himself on the chest.. ]]-
[ Christian ] Now, roll that beautiful bean footage and let's get this show on the road...
-[[ He points to the fans.. ]]-
[ Christian ] Because THAT.. IS HOW I ROLL!!
-[[ Another pop and fade out. ]]-
-[[ A black curtain and an empty folding chair. ]]-
-[[ Chavo Guerrero, Jr. sits in the chair, clutching Pepe in one hand.. Chavo is in his wrestling gear despite not even being on the active roster.. Chavo begins rubbing his goatee as if he is in deep thought.. Finally, he speaks.. ]]-
[ Chavo Guerrero ] Memories of Taz.. Hmm..
-[[ He nods to himself. ]]-
[ Chavo Guerrero ] He always struck me as a waste of human flesh!!
-[[ He shrugs, an innocent look on his face. ]]-
[ Chavo Guerrero ] Sorry! I just call'em like I see'em!! He was always angry.. It was sad, man!! Always lost because he was too angry to concentrate on the match.. And was always angry because he couldn't win to save his life!! It was a vicious cycle.. Really, man..
[ Pepe ] ... .. . . ........
[ Chavo Guerrero ] Right, Pepe!! The drugs!! Taz was always smoking weed in the back.. Totally fried his brain.. So he became angry AND stupid!!
-[[ Chavo shakes his head.. ]]-
[ Chavo Guerrero ] That's when he should have called it quits..
[ Pepe ] .. . . . ...
[ Chavo Guerrero ] Right again, Pepe.. Not just from wrestling, but from life!!
[ Pepe ] .. . .. .
-[[ Chavo nods. ]]-
[ Chavo Guerrero ] He just didn't know when to quit.. But.. That's drugs for ya'..
-[[ Chavo looks at the floor and then back up at you. ]]-
[ Chavo Guerrero ] They effect your judgment.. They make you think wrestling with an incurable brainerism is a good idea.. And worse yet, they make you say things like smoke me if you can.. And get high if I let you.. Then you're jumping out of cars and beating up ten year old kids.. Throwing girls through windows.. Throwing your girlfriend over the couch and telling her to survive.... And that's the real tragedy, man..
-[[ Chavo gets an uplifting look on his face.. ]]-
[ Chavo Guerrero ] So.. I guess the lesson here is... Say no to drugs, kids..
[ Pepe ] .. . .. ..
[ Chavo Guerrero ] That's right, Pepe.. And always remember.. Safety first!!
Chavo stands up and
leaves with Pepe.

[ Maria ] HI~! Maria here!!
-[[ She's positively shaking with excitement. ]]-
[ Maria ] And guess what, everybody!?
-[[ She begins jumping up and down as she yells into the microphone.. ]]-
[ Maria ] I HAVE ANOTHER BIG, BIG, SUPER-BIG ANNOUNCEMENT~!!
-[[ She stops jumping, but she remains bouncing pretty steadily as her smile gets even bigger.. ]]-
[ Maria ] As everybody knows, now that I'm the super-cool owner of SGW, that means I have a lot of responsibilities and I don't have any time to do the backstage interviews anymore!! And that means Todd gets more television time!!
-[[ Maria pouts, wiping a fake tear from her eye. ]]-
[ Maria ] And that's no fun for anybody!
-[[ She then looks off to the side, smiling big again. ]]-
[ Maria ] SOOOOO... I WENT OUT LOOKING FOR A NEW INTERVIEWER!!
-[[ She's almost glowing, she's so happy. ]]-
[ Maria ] I thought Elmo would be perfect for the job and we tried to call his people but Jillian said that Elmo was just way too busy to come to Solid Gold Wrestling and that made me sad.. Because I just didn't know who else to call! But Jillian went through the old SGW address books and she suggested this guy... Jillian says he's another one of those legend things, which is AWESOME~!!
-[[ She motions to the side of her.. ]]-
[ Maria ] Ladies and gentlemen..... SHAAAAAAAANE.. DOOOOOOOUGLAS!! YAY!!
-[[ The camera pans over to reveal the former SGW World Champion, "The Franchise" Shane Douglas wearing a yellow polo shirt and black pants.. He has a microphone in his hand and a maniacal look in his eye... ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] HA HA HA... Thank you, Maria.. "The Franchise" is proud to be back in the company.. He made famous!!
-[[ He laughs and rubs his hands together.. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] And what better time for "The Franchise" to return... Than at the Taz Memorial Show!? HA HA HA... TAZ!! A man who at one point, we were a tag team.. And at every other point..... I KICKED HIS ASS!!
-[[ Douglas' voice echoes in the back... The death of Taz has obviously fueled his fire.. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] Teaming with Taz, he told me, "The Franchise" Shane Douglas, his deepest, darkest.. INNERMOST SECRETS!! HA HA HA...... And quite frankly, since I respect Taz even LESS in death.... Since he died, simply put, LIKE A PUSSY, "The Franchise" is going to give everybody.......... HA HA HA... THE GOD DAMN SCOOP!!
-[[ He turns to Maria, who is pouting again and looks frightened standing next to this man.. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] Maria, I'm going to tell you right now with a straight face... In front of GOD AND MY FATHER.. That if I could go back in time to last week and save Taz....... I WOULDN'T!! Because Taz was, quite frankly, an angry, useless, HARD OF HEARING LITTLE MAN!! And if anybody... ANYBODY.. IN THIS BUSINESS... DESERVED TO DIE.... IT WAS THAT DRUGGED OUT........ PIECE OF SHIT!! HA HA HA!!
-[[ Maria's eyes go wide and she smiles. ]]-
[ Maria ] If I could go back in time.. I would want to meet Snoopy!!
-[[ Douglas' maniacal look fades.... He then blurts out. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] SHOW ME YOUR TITS!! Or get the fuck... OFF OF MY INTERVIEW SET!!
-[[ Maria looks highly offended.. ]]-
[ Maria ] Why is everyone in SGW so rude!? You're making me want to cry, mister, and I don't show my boobies to anyone unless I love them very much! And I don't think I like you at all!
-[[ Douglas laughs.. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] HA HA HA!! Then leave, whore, because this is my SET!! IT'S MY SET!! IT'S MY DAMN STINKIN' SET!! And I'll do and say what I want... Take THIS for example...... "THE FRANCHISE".. HA HA HA... IS GOING TO SHOOT!!
-[[ Shane Douglas stares right into the camera with sweat dripping off of his brow.. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] All Peter... "TAZ".. SENERCA was good for.. WAS BITCHING!! He'd bitch when he lost... He'd bitch.. EVEN WHEN HE WON!! And all because...... Quite frankly...... HE COULDN'T WIN THE BIG ONE!! He'd bitch about his mother.. And he'd bitch about his father..... AS IF ANYONE GIVES..... A FUCKING SHIT!! HA HA HA...... And now.. NOW HE CAN BURN IN HELL WITH THE BOTH OF'EM.. AND DAVEY BOY SMITH, THE BRITISH BULLDOG, WHO DIED, R.I.P. FOUR YEARS AGO!!
-[[ Douglas then reaches off camera and brings..... An old version of the SGW World Title into the shot!! ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] Awarded to me by Arn Anderson, Taz!! THE LIFETIME SGW WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!! I HAVE IT.. YOU DON'T!! AND YOU NEVER WILL!! BECAUSE I MADE THE BIG TIME!! I WON... THE BIG BELT!! AND I REAPED THE REWARDS!! HA HA HA..... AND YOU, TAZ.. YOU ALLOWED THIS BUSINESS TO TURN YOU INTO.... A BITTER, DEAF PIECE OF SHIT..... AND LATER ON, A CHARRED UP, JOBBER PIECE OF SHIT.. THAT ALSO HAPPENS TO BE... FUCKING DEAD!!
-[[ Douglas pauses and continues.. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] ALL I COULD THINK OF WHEN I SAW HIM DIE ON LIVE FUCKIN' TELEVISION.. WAS WHY DID IT HAVE TO BE AN EIGHTEEN WHEELER!? TAZ... DESERVED A MORE FITTING DEATH.... HA HA HA.. LIKE CHOKING ON HIS OWN VOMIT WITH A BOTTLE OF BOOZE IN ONE HAND.. AND A REMOTE CONTROL IN THE OTHER.. DYING WHILE WATCHING A REAL WORLD CHAMPION.. LIKE CHRISTIAN ON HIS RADIO SHACK TEN FUCKING DOLLAR TELEVISION SET!!
-[[ Douglas is visibly shaking with intensity.. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] SMOKE THIS.. SMOKE THAT.. FUCK ALL THAT FUCKING BULLLLLSSSSHHIIIIT!! THE ONLY THING SMOKING NOW IS YOUR FUCKING ORANGE SKIN, YOU PIECE OF SHIT NEVER-WAS!! IF ONLY YOU HAD STOPPED SMOKING WEED.. AND FOR THAT MATTER, SMOKING POLE, THEN MAYBE YOU'D HAVE REALIZED YOU'D HAVE NEEDED MORE THAN A FOUR FOOT THREE, THREE HUNDRED PLUS POUND FRAME TO BE A WORLD CHAMPION IN SOLID FUCKING GOLD WRESTLING!!
-[[ Douglas slings the Lifetime SGW World Title to the side and continues ranting and raving.. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] IF I DIDN'T NEED IT SO I COULD FUCK YOUR WHORE OF A GIRLFRIEND AFTER YOUR FUNERAL, TAZ.. I'D LET THEM BURY YOU WITH MY DICK IN YOUR MOUTH!! BECAUSE THAT'S ALL YOU WERE EVER GOOD FOR..... HYPING UP THE GUYS BETTER THAN YOU.. AND SUCKING THEIR FUCKING COCKS!!
-[[ Douglas is ranting so hard that he's spitting all over the camera.. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] YOU ARE NO LONGER A WRESTLER, TAZ, AND NOT BECAUSE YOU'RE FUCKING DEAD... YOU BECAME A CARTOON CHARACTER.. A CARICATURE OF EXTREME CHAMPIONSHIP WRESTLING!! YOU SUCKED THEN....... AND YOU SUCK NOW!!
-[[ He stops yelling, only speaking low and intense now. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] And I am honest to Jesus Christ, our Lord and fucking Savior, PROUD, Taz.. PROUD that I was here to see you go down.. To see "The Legend Killer" Randy Orton do what you claimed.. You were going to do two years ago... And that is choke.. The cancer... OUT!! HA HA HA!!
-[[ He turns and looks at Maria, still laughing.. She gulps loudly.. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] How's that for a fucking interview, toots?!
-[[ She looks at him with large doe eyes. ]]-
[ Maria ] You cuss too much.. And cancer isn't funny!! It itches!!
-[[ Douglas is absolutely, one hundred percent bumfuzzled by this one... So he snaps back.. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] When it happens to Taz and his family.. It doesn't itch.. IT KILLS!! HA HA HA!!
-[[ Before she can fire back another witty response, Kurt Angle saunters into the scene, looking as serious, yet cocky as he usually does... His Olympic gold medals hang around his neck... Maria looks happy to see him.. Shane Douglas looks at him like he can't believe he's interrupting his beautiful shoot promo.. Kurt Angle looks Douglas up and down and then speaks.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] I hope I'm not interrupting anything important.. I mean, I'd hate to take away any of our new interviewer's precious television time..... After all, I only won these gold medals with a BROKE FREAKIN' NECK!!
-[[ Douglas smiles evilly and jams his microphone into Kurt Angle's face.. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] Tell us about Taz, Kurt!! HA HA HA.. WHAT HAVE YOU GOT!?
-[[ Kurt looks confused.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] Taz? I'm not here to talk about Taz, Shane.. I'm here to talk about someone far more relevant to the history of Solid Gold Wrestling.. Someone that can actually WIN matches.. Someone that gets the job done and has, at least one time in their whole career.........
-[[ Kurt lifts up the gold medal that was resting on his chest.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] BROUGHT HOME THE GOLD!!
-[[ Angle nods, smirking.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] And that's exactly what I'm going to do tonight when I get in the ring with John Bradshaw Layfield and our.. Hardcore champion, Cactus Jack..... GREAT CHOICE, by the way, Maria...
-[[ She nods, smiling. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] I wasn't being serious, Maria..
-[[ Her smile disappears. ]]-
[ Maria ] ..Oh.. Then.. What were you being?
-[[ Angle yells at her. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] I WAS MAKING FUN OF YOUR HORRIBLE CHOICE FOR A CHAMPION!!
-[[ She looks like she's going to cry now.. Angle wipes the sweat from his brow.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] Tonight, I'm going to make Cactus Jack.. And John Bradshaw Layfield tap out.. It doesn't matter if it's a hardcore match.. Or any other kind of match.. Because Kurt Angle excels in any environment he's placed in.. Oh, yes.. It's TRUE.... And I firmly believe.. That's there's no one in this company.. Man OR woman.. That can beat me..
-[[ Silver chains and spikes... And breasts enter the shot.. Kurt Angle looks up at the woman that's just step in front of him... Shane Douglas stares in mock terror and then begins laughing.. Maria just stares in awe.. ]]-
[ Maria ] WOW.. OH MAN.. WHOA... IT'S CONAN THE BARBARIAN!!
-[[ Chyna pays no mind to Maria and just stares down at Kurt Angle... ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] What do you have to say about this, Kurt!? HA HA HA.. WHAT HAVE YOU GOTTA SAY ABOUT THIS!?
-[[ Kurt Angle smiles, looking up at the hulk of a woman.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] What have I gotta say, Shane? I'll tell you what I have to say.... Kurt Angle is an equal opportunity ass kicker.. I don't discriminate.. If you want to get in the ring with me, lady.. Then I've got two options for you.. AND OH NO.. IT'S NOT TAP OUT OR BLACK OUT.. Oh, hell no, because passing out.. Isn't an option... That's true..
-[[ Chyna doesn't say a word, just staring down at Angle.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] It's tap out.. OR ANGLE SLAM!!
-[[ He steps away from Douglas and closer to her.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] Whenever you THINK you're ready.. Let me know..
-[[ Angle walks away from the interview set, leaving Chyna to watch him make his exit.. A smile creeps across her face. ]]-
-[[ Val Venis is sitting in the same folding chair from earlier... He's looking down at the floor between his feet.. This was obviously filmed earlier tonight because he's already in his wrestling gear... The tension here is very thick and Val's hesitation only makes it thicker...... Finally, he looks up into the camera.. No sadness, only anger... ]]-
[ Val Venis ] He deserved better.
stands up and walks off of the set..

Winner: Scott Steiner via Submission
[ "Stone Cold" Steve Austin ] Where ya' headed, Rocky?
-[[ The Rock removes his sunglasses and hangs them on the inside of his vest... He bobs his head around like he's preparing to fight and begins kicking his legs out to the side as if he's working out the kinks.. The Rock then... Smiles right in Austin's face... ]]-
[ The Rock ] The Rock knows you from somewhere.... Where's the Rock seen your face?
-[[ The Rock begins to mocking act like he's thinking hard and then he raises one index finger in the air as if it has just dawned on him... The Rock's tone is enlightened and sarcastic at the same time.. ]]-
[ The Rock ] The Rock remembers, baby!! You're the guy the Rock beat last week!!
-[[ The Rock adjusts his belt buckle.. He turns back to Haku and Lita and points at Austin with his thumb.. ]]-
[ The Rock ] Hey, mama.. It's the guy the Rock beat last week! He's here to congratulate the Rock!!
-[[ He shakes his head, almost laughing, his back still to Austin.. ]]-
[ The Rock ] He's gonna congratulate the Rock.. Watch.. Be cool!
-[[ The Rock then turns to the camera and raises his eyebrow.. ]]-
[ The Rock ] The Rock is serious.. Watch Be Cool, mama!!
-[[ The Rock turns around and is still smiling when he locks eyes with Austin again.. ]]-
[ The Rock ] The Rock is appreciative of your congratulations, Rattlesnake, but it ain't necessary.. The Rock knows it takes a lot o'guts to man up and give props to the better man and havin' the guts to walk up to the Rock and admit that the Rock IS the better man is rather impressive on your part..... Quite frankly, the Rock didn't think ya' had it in ya', Steve.. So, allow the Rock...... To thank you.
-[[ The Rock then gives Austin a big hug!! What the hell is THIS!? The Rock pulls back and Austin hasn't moved at all, nor has he said one single word.. "Stone Cold" remains staring at The Rock... Finally, Austin speaks.. ]]-
[ "Stone Cold" Steve Austin ] I didn't come here to congratulate you, Rocky..
-[[ The Rock's smile and laugh begins faint.. Desperate.. ]]-
[ The Rock ] Then what are ya' wastin' the Rock's time for, Steve?
-[[ Austin remains dead serious, giving the Rock no love whatsoever.. ]]-
[ "Stone Cold" Steve Austin ] Last week, ya' didn't beat me, son.. Ol' Stone Cold beat himself.. And ya' know it.. So I'm comin' to you right now and I'm gonna tell ya' straight up.. I'm gonna give ya' an opportunity to make things right.... I already squared things with Triple H tonight..... BOO YAH, I RANG UP A STUNNER.... And later tonight, I'm gonna square things up with Brock Lesnar... When I BOO YAH, RING UP ANOTHER STUNNER......
-[[ The Rock is just staring Austin right in the face.. Austin continues.. ]]-
[ "Stone Cold" Steve Austin ] What I'm sayin', Rocky... Is "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.. Wants a rematch!!
-[[ The Rock tilts his head back and begins laughing.. ]]-
[ The Rock ] That's cute, Steve.. That's why the Rock loves ya'..
-[[ The Rock begins to walk past Austin but Austin stops him with a hand on his chest... The Rock looks down at Austin's hand and then back up at Austin's face.. The Rock's eyes go wide... He can't believe Austin has touched him.. ]]-
[ "Stone Cold" Steve Austin ] I ain't kiddin', Rocky.. I want a damn rematch..
-[[ The Rock says to Austin, dead serious.. ]]-
[ The Rock ] What does the Rock have to gain by givin' ya' a rematch, Steve!? The Rock's already beat ya' ass!! Ya' step in the ring with the Rock again, mama, and ya' gonna end up like Taz!! Do ya' want that, Steve!? Everybody cryin', everybody bawlin' and missin' ya' like a bunch of cryin' ninnies!!
-[[ The Rock nods, staring Austin in the face.. ]]-
[ The Rock ] Ya' know what they'll put on ya' tombstone, Austin!? Do ya'? Let the Rock let YOU know!! HERE LIES STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN.. THE ROCK SHINED HIS BOOT UP REAL NICE..... Oh yeah, mama, wait for it... HE SLAPPED ON SOME LUBRICANT.. Here it comes, wait.. AND HE TURNED THAT SUMBITCH SIDEWAYS!!!
-[[ The Rock raises an eyebrow.. Austin cuts him off.. ]]-
[ "Stone Cold" Steve Austin ] If you finish that, I'm gonna stomp your ass where ya' stand..
-[[ The Rock smiles.. ]]-
[ The Rock ] The Rock kids, Steve... But no rematch.. The Rock's already moved on to bigga' and BETTA' things than "Stone Cold" Steve Austin... Ya' yesterday's news, pal... The Rock's got a tournament to win tonight.. And then the Rock's goin' after the world championship, ya' smell it?
-[[ The Rock stomps past Austin with nothing stopping him now... Haku and Lita walk past him as well.. "Stone Cold" just stands there, not even watching them leave, shaking with anger.. He just shakes his head as he hears the Rock speak.. ]]-
[ The Rock ] A rematch... Ya' kill me, Steve..
-[[ Fade out. ]]-

[ Ric Flair ] You tried, Hunter... You did your best, pal..
-[[ Triple H stops dead in his tracks... Breathing really heavily now.. ]]-
[ Ric Flair ] You can't blame yourself for this one, Game.. You had it won..
-[[ Flair walks up behind Triple H and begins massaging his shoulders.. ]]-
[ Ric Flair ] Blame Austin.. He's the one who did this to you... You should be the United States champion right now..
-[[ Triple H hangs his head, looking disappointed.. ]]-
[ Ric Flair ] You're still the man..
[ Triple H ] I'm going to destroy Steve Austin, Ric... I.. Am going.. To destroy him... Tonight.. He screwed me out of the United States championship..... And tonight, during his little street fight..... I.. AM GOING.. TO DESTROY HIM!! And there is no one.. No one that can stop me, Naitch..... I won't stop until his career.. Is over...
-[[ The door to the dressing room swings open and Brock Lesnar storms in with Paul Heyman following closely behind him.. Brock Lesnar looks jacked and ready to fight... Paul Heyman is standing behind him, rubbing his hands together.. ]]-
[ Brock Lesnar ] Did I hear you right, Hunter?
-[[ Triple H stomps right up to Lesnar and gets in his face. ]]-
[ Triple H ] You heard me right.. I'm going to kick.. Austin's... ASS!!
-[[ Lesnar smirks, staring down at Hunter.. ]]-
[ Brock Lesnar ] Not during my match, you're not... Because his ass.. Belongs to me..
-[[ Both men begin breathing heavily in each other's faces, trying to intimidate the other.. ]]-
[ Brock Lesnar ] Don't worry about what he did to you.. You just sit back here.. Relax.. Watch the match on the monitor.. And witness me punish "Stone Cold" Steve Austin in ways.. That you never knew were possible....
-[[ Lesnar's eyes go wide.. ]]-
[ Brock Lesnar ] I.. Will.. Break him..
-[[ Triple H is dead serious. ]]-
[ Triple H ] See that you do, Lesnar.. Because if you don't......
-[[ Their noses almost touch.. ]]-
[ Triple H ] It's YOUR ass!!
-[[ The dressing room door opens again and Scott Hall pokes his head in the room.. He has one of those small coolers in his hand... He has a goofy look on his face as he slowly wanders in without a care in the world... ]]-
[ Scott Hall ] 'Ey yo.. Anybody wanna beer?
-[[ Triple H leans to his side to see past Lesnar and sees Hall cracking open a beer.. ]]-
[ Triple H ] Hall.. What the hell? After getting fired from damn near every promotion you've ever wrestled for because you're a stupid drunk, have you learned absolutely nothing!?
-[[ Hall looks shocked.. ]]-
[ Scott Hall ] C'mon, H.. It's just ONE beer.. And a few wine coolers, man!!
-[[ Triple H stomps over and slaps the beer out of Hall's hand, but before this can go any further, the lights begin to flicker.. And then they go out altogether..... There's a sound of scuffling, a groan of pain, and then the lights come back on.. Everyone looks around and then their eyes settle on the body of "The Nature Boy" Ric Flair, sprawled out on the floor... With a black trench coat laying across his upper body... A black baseball bat rests in Flair's limp hand... Triple H kicks the bat out of the way and rips the coat off of Flair.. Flair is already wearing the crimson mask... ]]-
[ Brock Lesnar ] STING!! THAT BASTARD!!
-[[ Triple H clutches the jacket hard and flings it across the room.. ]]-
[ Triple H ] That son of a bitch wants to play mind games with me!?
-[[ Triple H continues checking on Flair, he's not moving at all.. ]]-
[ Triple H ] He wants to.. Try and stop me!? I DO.. WHAT I WANT TO DO.. WHEN I WANT TO DO IT!!
[ Paul Heyman ] He thinks he's some kind of.. Authority or something.. Watching, making sure nobody does anything wrong... Or he'll swoop down on them like some kind of... Black and white bird of PREY!!
[ Triple H ] He thinks he's some kind of LAW!? I AM THE LAW IN SOLID GOLD WRESTLING!!
-[[ Triple H is seething mad.. ]]-
[ Triple H ] If he thinks he's getting away with this.. Then he is already as DEAD.. AS TAZ!!
-[[ Hall stares, dumbfounded.. ]]-
[ Scott Hall ] This is freaky, man.
-[[ The door swings open again and Shawn Michaels storms into the room with Torrie Wilson tailing him.. Triple H mans right up on him, getting right in his face.. Both men stare at each other, Triple H breathing heavily, shaking all over.. Shawn Michaels seems more collected, but just as ready to fight.. ]]-
[ Triple H ] You must have some kind of death wish, Michaels..
-[[ Michaels doesn't flinch. ]]-
[ Shawn Michaels ] I'm just here to let you know.. RIGHT NOW... That what you saw tonight..
-[[ Michaels raises his hand with his index finger just half an inch away from his thumb.. ]]-
[ Shawn Michaels ] Is just.. A LITTLE BIT.. Of what you're gonna get... AT HEARTBREAKER!!
[ Triple H ] Heartbreaker!? I've got bigger and better things to look forward to at Heartbreaker.. I said it last week.. I AM THROUGH.. WITH YOU.. You're a thing of the past, Michaels... YOU'RE FINISHED!! WHAT MAKES YOU THINK.. I WOULD WANT A MATCH WITH YOU AT HEARTBREAKER!?
-[[ Michaels smiles smugly... And then SLAPS Triple H!! ]]-
[ Shawn Michaels ] Next week... I've got an announcement just for you, Jackson...
-[[ Triple H doesn't turn his head back toward Triple H.. He just stares to the side.. ]]-
[ Shawn Michaels ] And trust me.. This announcement will SEAL the fact.. That I'm gonna dance.. ALL OVER YOUR FACE!!
-[[ Shawn Michaels turns and walks out the door with Torrie, leaving Triple H fuming... ]]-
-[[ Triple H stares hard into the camera as the scene cuts. ]]-
-[[ Another 'In Memoriam' appears, with a wreath lighting up an otherwise dark background. Off to the centre of the screen, the speaker can be seen.. sitting straight backed against a chair. Wearing an Arabian headdress pulled low in front of his eyes, Muhammad Hassan runs a hand down his goatee, contemplating. ]]-
[ Muhammad Hassan ] What.. a beloved day.
-[[ A sudden smile forms at his lips. ]]-
[ Muhammad Hassan ] Taz, nothing but a racist, bigamist, ignorant punk with a short frame, a big mouth and a lot to prove.. apparently.. had never heard of karma.
-[[ Hassan reclines against his chair, moving his arms across one another. ]]-
[ Muhammad Hassan ] He stood before me.. and tried to talk, tried to play an intimidation game--
-[[ With a heavy glare, he looks into the camera and continues. ]]-
[ Muhammad Hassan ] But just like he has been doing in the past two years, Taz lost.. again. It was just a matter of time.. Orton did what needed to be done.
-[[ He breathes out heavily, and then finally shakes his head. ]]-
[ Muhammad Hassan ] He -- Peter, I mean -- lived a pathetically sad life.. with meager achievements.. and ended it in the same pit of mediocrity he's always dwelled in.
-[[ The next few words are surprisingly harsh. ]]-
[ Muhammad Hassan ] Despite all this, he tried his best, and only dug a deeper grave for himself.
-[[ Brushing a palm up along his eye, Hassan lets out a deep sigh. ]]-
[ Muhammad Hassan ] Allah will redeem both he, and his family, and he will be most rewarded--
-[[ When suddenly.. ]]-
-[[ Khosrow Daivari's face suddenly appears over the screen, a menacing, twisted glare on his face. ]]-
[ Khosrow Daivari ] --IN HELL!
-[[ In hysterics, he continues. ]]-
[ Khosrow Daivari ] ALLAH ACKBAR! ACKHMED! IN.. HELL!!!
-[[ By the time he steps out of the scene, the chair is empty. ]]-
It appears the Jihad have said all they needed to
