-[[ The scene fades up with a shot of massive arms flexing right in the frame.... As you back away, you see that those arms belong to "The Masterpiece" Chris Masters.. He's standing there with a cocky look on his face as he admires his own physique.. He's talking to someone off-camera.. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] I'm telling you... Last week, I destroyed the so-called legend, Chavo Guerrero...

-[[ He smirks.. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] And tonight, I made the former television champion.. My personal bitch.

-[[ He waves his hand around.. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] World Warrior is going to be a breeze... I get to destroy "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and become the United States champion all in one night... And there's no one that can stop me... Because no one... Can break my Masterlock!

-[[ You hear the voice of the person he's talking to.. It's instantly recognizable.. ]]-

[ Lance Storm ] It's not wise to overlook Chris Benoit.

[ Chris Masters ] Chris who?

-[[ Storm smiles.. ]]-

[ Lance Storm ] Your first match of the evening..

-[[ Masters shrugs. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] So? I'm the Masterpiece.

-[[ Storm just shakes his head.. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] Is Chris Benoit the Masterpiece?

-[[ Masters shakes his head.. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] Nope... Because I'm the Masterpiece.

-[[ Masters locks his hands together and begins flexing his pecs.. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] And not even the great Chris Benoit.. Can break my Masterlock!

-[[ Storm ignores him.. ]]-

[ Lance Storm ] Even so... No matter who wins your match.. Yourself or Benoit.. You'll be the winner of the tournament and the championship.. Because I will have weakened "Stone Cold" Steve Austin to the point that he will be able unable to compete at one hundred percent...

-[[ Masters nods.. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] You just keep up that part of our deal... And I'll hold up mine..

[ Lance Storm ] A United States title shot, correct?

-[[ Masters shrugs.. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] If that's what you wanna call it.... I call it suicide.. But.. Hey.. To each his own.

-[[ Storm cracks his knuckles.. ]]-

[ Lance Storm ] I assure you.. Your Masterlock is no match for my Straight Shooter.

[ Chris Masters ] I guess we'll just have to see about that, won't we?

[ Lance Storm ] I suppose so.

-[[ Storm extends his hand to shake.. ]]-

[ Lance Storm ] I'll see you at World Warrior, then.

-[[ Masters accepts the handshake. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] And I'll see you AFTER World Warrior.. With my United States title on the line..

[ Lance Storm ] You're absolutely correct there.

-[[ Storm turns to leave the room and just as he opens the door to leave.. He finds "Stone Cold" Steve Austin standing right in front of him, pouring a can of beer all over himself as he "drinks" it... Storm just stands there, staring at him.. Masters, still in the middle of the room can only watch from a distance as Austin lowers the can and looks back down at Storm... Austin flicks the can and it bounces off Storm's chest... ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] Catch you fuckers at a bad time?

-[[ Big right hand to Storm!! "Stone Cold" whips Storm around and slings him hard into the wall!! Chris Masters charges at Austin and Austin ducks a running punch and pushes Masters forward into the wall!! Austin yanks Masters off the wall and throws him hard into the vanity mirror over his dresser!! Austin stomps over and grabs Masters' bags and begins beating him with them!! Masters is in a fetal position, trying to stop the assault, but Austin is relentless!! Lance Storm charges at Austin again and Austin slings the largest bag and it nails Storm right in the face!! Austin storms over and begins putting the boots to Storm as he lays on the floor!! Austin stomps over to Masters' dresser again and finds a large glass, full of a thick liquid... A protein shake... Austin smells of it and curls his lip.. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] And you had the... Audacity to say.. BEER SUCKS!?

-[[ Austin dumps the shake all over Masters' face and then drops the cup next to him.. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] Hell no, you little bastard.

-[[ Austin gets right down in Masters' face.. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] Protein shakes suck.. YOU SUCK.. And Canada... CANADA!?

-[[ Austin turns and gets down in Storm's face.. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] CANADA SUCKS, TOO!!! OH HELL YEAH!!

-[[ Austin stands and stomps out of the room as Masters and Storm attempt to stand up.. Looking shocked. ]]-

Winner: Ken Kennedy & The Big Show via Pin Fall





-[[ When we cut backstage, you're faced with a shot of a piece of paper attached to a clip board.. It's resting on a table in what appears to be the catering area.. As you close in on the text printed out on it, you realize it's an open contract for the Intercontinental Championship Battle Royal at World Warrior.. A pen rests next to it.. And someone picks it up.. ]]-

[ AJ Styles ] I don't know about anyone else.. But... I think winning the Intercontinental Championship in my first pay-per-view match.... Is going to be PHENOMENAL! Ha ha...

[ AJ Styles ] Wait... What the hell do you do!?

-[[ Cabana shrugs. ]]-

[ Colt Cabana ] Well, I'll tell you what I'm GONNA do..

-[[ He flashes a cocky smile. ]]-

[ Colt Cabana ] I'm gonna win the Intercontinental Title in my first match.

[ Petey Williams ] Forget what AJ Styles can do.. And forget what you can do, Cabana..

-[[ Petey Williams walks right up between them and takes the contract.. He writes his name down... ]]-

[ Petey Williams ] Because I can do... THE CANADIAN DESTROYER!!

[ Petey Williams ] And after I wipe out Lance Storm with it tonight.. I'm going to use it at World Warrior.. And become the new Solid Gold Wrestling.. Intercontinental Champion!!

-[[ There's laughter.. ]]-

[ Christopher Daniels ] What a joke this is... You three actually think you stand a chance with me involved?

-[[ He takes the clipboard and signs his name.. ]]-

[ Christopher Daniels ] Compared to me, you're all enhancement talent and would be better suited facing the Spirit Squad in the pre-show... Because unlike me.... You're not ready for primetime.. Much less pay-per-view..

-[[ Just then, the Rock slides into the shot like Kramer and only stops sliding when he grips his belt buckle and yells.. ]]-

[ The Rock ] WHOAAAA, MAMA.. Just... whoa..

-[[ Everyone turns and looks at him.. The Rock stands there in his vest and leather pants, smiling that big smile. ]]-

-[[ Petey stands there like he's going to attack him.. But then huffs and puffs and walks off camera.. The Rock looks around at everyone else, smiling and waggling his head around... His eyes settle on Colt Cabana.. ]]-

[ The Rock ] And who, the Rock asks.... ARE YOU!?

[ AJ Styles ] That's what I was wonderin--

[ The Rock ] The Rock don't know who you are eitha', bitch, so shut up.

-[[ The Rock waves his hand in AJ's face. ]]-

[ The Rock ] The Rock said shut your mouth. Shut it.

-[[ He turns back to Cabana. ]]-

[ The Rock ] You were sayin'?

[ Colt Cabana ] I'm Colt--

-[[ The Rock bursts out laughing. ]]-

[ The Rock ] It don't matta'... You're excused.

[ Colt Cabana ] But--

[ The Rock ] The Rock said you're excused.

[ The Rock ] And back to you... The Rock says you talk like ya' tongue is too big for ya' mouth.. You country?

-[[ AJ looks pissed. ]]-

[ AJ Styles ] Are you going to sign the contract or not?

-[[ The Rock looks around.. ]]-

[ The Rock ] Contract?

[ AJ Styles ] You're not here to join the Intercontinental title battle royal?

-[[ The Rock laughs. ]]-

[ The Rock ] Nah.

-[[ Styles' jaw drops.. ]]-

[ AJ Styles ] Then.. What was all of this about?

-[[ The Rock adjusts his belt buckle. ]]-

[ The Rock ] The Rock don't NEED a point.. To make a point.

-[[ Styles just stands there.. ]]-

[ The Rock ] Smell it.

-[[ The Rock walks off camera, leaving Styles... But Styles isn't alone much longer because he hears that cackling hyena laugh that could belong to only one person... Brian Lawler.. Lawler shuffles into the shot and grabs the contract.. ]]-

[ Brian Lawler ] Hell yeah, son.. Gonna win me a title in my first match!!

-[[ And then the contract is slapped out of his hand.... He turns and finds himself eye to eye with "Big Poppa Pump" Scott Steiner.. Steiner has Mickie James hanging all over him, cackling like an idiot as he just stands there and stares at Lawler... Lawler swallows hard. ]]-

[ Brian Lawler ] ....Hey, Scotty.

-[[ He extends his hand to shake nervously.. ]]-

[ Brian Lawler ] ..Peace?

-[[ Steiner shakes his head. ]]-

[ Scott Steiner ] No.

-[[ The first punch sends Lawler reeling and Steiner is on him, punching away at his head and neck, trying to injure him seriously.. Lawler tries fighting back and Styles just watches the carnage unfold.. Steiner yanks Lawler up off the ground and belly-to-belly suplexes him THROUGH THE TABLE!! Mickie cheers him on. ]]-

[ Mickie James ] YEAH!! TAKE THAT, LAWLER!! MY SCOTTY IS THE BEST WRESTLER EVER!! EVER!!

-[[ Steiner picks up the contract and looks it over.. ]]-

[ Scott Steiner ] Waste o'fuckin' time..

-[[ He points at nothing in particular.. ]]-

[ Scott Steiner ] Big Poppa Pump is your hook-up!! HOLLER.. IF YA' HEAR ME!!

-[[ Mickie cheers him on as he stomps off camera.. Styles walks over and picks up the contract.. And then Shawn Michaels and Sid Vicious wander into the shot... Shawn looks Styles up and down and his eyes settle on the contract.. ]]-

[ Shawn Michaels ] That what I think it is?

-[[ Styles nods. ]]-

[ Shawn Michaels ] Hand it over, Jackson.

-[[ Styles does and Michaels writes his name down.. ]]-

[ Shawn Michaels ] Tag champs one night.. Intercontinental Champ the next..

-[[ He smirks.. ]]-

[ Shawn Michaels ] Too easy.

-[[ They walk away and Styles looks ready to leave himself.. And then.... The lights begin to flicker.. Styles looks around, looking scared to death.. And then the Dead Man himself walks into the shot.. The Undertaker.. He takes the contract and looks at it.. He looks down at Styles and rolls his eyes, groaning..... And then the Undertaker is SPEARED OUT OF HIS BOOTS BY BILL GOLDBERG!! The Undertaker's head bounces off the wall and he doesn't move again.. Goldberg kneels over him, breathing heavily.. ]]-

[ Bill Goldberg ] YEAH!! SEEK AND DESTROY!!

[ Bill Goldberg ] IN A CASKET MATCH!! YOU'RE NEXT!!

-[[ Goldberg walks off, looking pissed as all hell as Taker lays there motionless.. Styles is just standing there in disbelief.. And then... The Ultimate Warrior's music hits... BACKSTAGE!!? The Warrior charges into the room, pumping his fists and running circles all around AJ Styles, breathing heavily, feeling the flow.. Styles looks terrified, trying to follow the Warrior with his eyes but he's making laps around the room like he's a Nascar driver.. Styles finally is able to mutter something.. ]]-

[ AJ Styles ] Warrior? ....Do you want to sign up for the match?

-[[ The Warrior stops running but keeps pumping his fists and breathing heavily.. ]]-

[ The Ultimate Warrior ] THE EARS OF THE WARRIOR HEAR NOT THE VOICE OF THE PASTY, LITTLE MAN!! FOR THE EARS OF THE WARRIOR ONLY HEAR THE SOUNDS OF COMBAT AND THAT IS THE ONLY THING THE WARRIOR... KNOOOOWWSSSS!!!!

-[[ He begins running in place.. ]]-

[ The Ultimate Warrior ] THE WORLD WARRIOR TOURNAMENT IS A FARCE, FABRICATED BY THOSE WHO WISH TO ERASE THE WARRIOR FROM THE WRESTLING WORLD BUT THE WARRIOR WILL NOT BE ERASED BECAUSE HE IS THE ONLY REAL WARRIOR IN THIS BUSINESS.. THE ULLLLLLLLLLLTIMMAAAAATTEEEE WARRRIORRRRRR!!!

-[[ He rips the contract from Styles' hands and begins writing his name down while still running in place. ]]-

[ The Ultimate Warrior ] I ACCEPT THE MATCH JUST AS I WILL ACCEPT THE INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP AT WORLD WARRIOR, JUST AS I ACCEPTED THE POWER HANDED DOWN TO ME BY THE GODS THAT CHOSE ME AND ONLY ME TO BE THE ONE TRUE ULTIMATE WARRIOR AND THAT IS WHAT THERE WILL BE AT WORLD WARRIOR.. THERE IS NO WORLD WARRIOR, ONLY ONE TRUE WARRIOR.. AND THAT IS.. THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR!!!

[ Edge ] Inspirational.. Gutsy.. Courageous.. All words used to describe Chavo Guerrero Junior for standing up for Maria and coming after my brother and myself..... But to us.. There's only one word that fits..

-[[ Christian nods.. ]]-

[ Christian ] Idiot.

-[[ A pause. ]]-

[ Edge ] The bottom line is this... Chavo Guerrero... At World Warrior, you're going to lose that match.. Maria's going to lose her job.. And you're going to lose your damn stinkin' career....

[ Christian ] Yeah.. But don't worry about anything, Chavo.. Because you'll still have a job..

[ Christian ] I mean, after all... Somebody has to clean our pool!!

-[[ Edge goes serious.. ]]-

[ Edge ] It's do or die time, Chavo... This isn't some inspirational journey you're taking... It's suicide..

-[[ Christian waves Edge off.. ]]-

[ Christian ] Actually.. It's not even that...

-[[ Edge looks confused.. ]]-

[ Christian ] Chavo Guerrero's too selfish to embark on something like an inspirational journey.. He's too selfish to even consider this a suicide mission...... The fact of the matter is.. Chavo Guerrero knows he's losing.. He knows he's going out... And he just wants to trick everyone in Solid Gold.. And all of his idiot fans at home back in Mexico... Into thinking that his final match.. His final LOSS.... Means something....

-[[ Edge laughs and slaps Christian on the chest.. ]]-

[ Edge ] Oh, it means something alright..... It means the last time we ever to suffer through another Chavo Guerrero pity push disguised as a legend's big comeback..... Because when we're done at World Warrior.. Chavo Guerrero wouldn't be able to wrestle again.. Even if he could.. And as for Maria's involvement.. When I'm done pinning her in the ring..... I'm going to pin her in the sack!!

-[[ Edge laughs.. ]]-

[ Edge ] You really missed out, Jillian..

-[[ Christian cuts in.. ]]-

[ Christian ] Just realize this, Chavo.. There's no more fun and games.. We're not playing around anymore.. We're only playing to WIN.. And that's what we do... We're not laying down for anybody.. Especially someone that's on their way out.. Because that..... Is how we roll!!

-[[ He hocks.. Pushes Kennedy aside.. And spits a thick wad of phlegm right in Russo's face!! Orton backs away, smiling as Russo tries to pick it out of his eyes and hair... Kennedy and Show just shake their heads in disgust.. ]]-

[ Ken Kennedy ] You're gonna pay, Orton... Listen.. To what I say..
