STROKE: Swerve? | June 10th, 2006 | Live From: San Francisco, California | Commentators: Joey Styles & Don Callis

-[[ We open up in the ring.. There are three folding chairs already set-up.. The Harris Brothers are standing in the ring and Nick Patrick, in his referee gear, is already seated in the first chair, looking nervous as hell... We turn to the ramp as Jillian's music hits and she walks out onto the ramp, followed by "The Masterpiece" Chris Masters, who is still holding Alexis in a loose variation of the Masterlock.. And the Blue Meanie, who follows voluntarily from sheer intimidation.. They make their way to the ring and enter with Masters slinging Alexis underneath the bottom rope.. The Harris Brothers lift her off the mat and seat her.. The Blue Meanie sits down next to her, putting himself in the center seat.. Jillian Hall calls for a microphone... ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Welcome to... The Masterlock.. Gauntlet!

-[[ Boos.. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] The rules are simple.. The Masterpiece puts one person at a time in his Masterlock..

-[[ She nods, smiling.. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] It's that simple! And as each person fails to break it, he moves on to the next one!

-[[ A pause.. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Until alllllll the competitors.. Are eliminated!

-[[ Chris Masters paces back and forth behind the chairs.. All three of them look nervous.. Jillian Hall then points.. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Do Nick first!

-[[ Chris Masters smiles and stops behind Nick Patrick's chair.. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Raise your arms, Nick! Let him get situated!

-[[ Nick Patrick swallows hard... He raises his arms slowly.. And Chris Masters puts on the hold without the pressure first.. He locks it in and Jillian Hall bends over right in Nick Patrick's face.. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] I guess now.. Is as good a time as any to let you know..

-[[ She has a look of mock-sadness on her face. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] But whether you break the Masterlock or not.....

-[[ And then she laughs. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] YOU'RE FIRED!

-[[ And Chris Masters rips him out of the seat, whipping him around in the hold until he goes completely limp.. Masters slings him high in the air and drives him straight down onto his knees! Nick Patrick isn't moving at all.. Chris Masters has rendered him totally unconscious.. Masters slings him down face first.. Flexing his pecs and yelling like a monster.. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Ladies and gentlemen.. Nick Patrick has left the building!

-[[ Masters picks up Patrick's chair and throws it out of the ring.. He now stands behind the Meanie and Alexis.. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Which one goes next? Hmmm... I wonder!

-[[ The bitch.. Playing with them like a little kid. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Do the porker!

-[[ Meanie's eyes go wide.. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Raise your arms.. FAT ASS!

-[[ He shakes his head, holding them tight to his sides.. He's scared to death. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Raise.. Your.. Arms.. You fat loser! And maybe I won't fire you!

[ The Blue Meanie ] I can't! ...I can't!

-[[ Masters thumps him in the back of the head. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] Get in the position!

[ The Blue Meanie ] I can't!

[ Jillian Hall ] You.. You... Fat.. Disgusting.. USELESS--

[ Alexis Laree ] Leave him alone!

-[[ She stands up and Don Harris forces her back into the seat... And Chris Masters Polish hammers the Meanie in the back of the head! The Meanie sprawls forward to the mat and doesn't move, but that doesn't matter.. Masters slings the Meanie's chair out of the ring and pounces on him, lifting his limp body.. INTO THE MASTERLOCK! He whips the Meanie around, pushing down hard on his head and then slings him forward onto the mat.. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Big surprise.... FAT ASS IS ELIMINATED!

[ Alexis Laree ] Stop calling him that!

-[[ Jillian rolls her eyes. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Guess who's next?

-[[ Alexis looks furious.. Masters takes his position behind her.. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] I feel like I'm having.. Deja vu!

-[[ And then it hits him.. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] Oh yeah.. I remember.. You couldn't break my Masterlock at Body Count either!

-[[ Jillian laughs and gets right down in Alexis' face. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] You break the Masterlock.. And I'll personally pay for Raven's medical bills!

-[[ She stands up and flips her hair.. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Well.. Not really.

-[[ And then she cackles. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Not that you have a chance anyway..

-[[ And then she points at Masters.. ]]-

[ Jillian Hall ] Break her neck.. Let her know who's really in charge here.

-[[ Masters smirks.. ]]-

[ Chris Masters ] You got it...... Boss!

-[[ And Alexis lunges for Jillian again, this time tackling her town and slugging her in the face once, twice and then she's lifted off of the mat in the Masterlock! Jillian rolls over, cupping her hands underneath her nose to catch the blood dumping out of it.. Chris Masters flings Alexis around in the Masterlock like she's completely weightless and then-- ]]-


-[[ Masters immediately drops Alexis and turns toward the ramp, waiting for Matt Hardy to come down.. But he comes in through the crowd!! Hardy slides in and nails Masters from behind!! The impact sends Masters flying between the middle and top ropes and to the outside.. Hardy spins and grabs the last chair in the ring and goes after both Harris Brothers but they scatter and escape up the ramp with Masters.. Leaving Jillian all by herself.. She staggers to her feet, holding her face as blood seeps through her fingers... And Alexis kicks her in the gut.. Hooks her..... TORNADO DDT! Jillian rolls out of the ring as Alexis sits where she landed, rubbing her own neck... Matt Hardy stares down at her.. And then grabs the microphone Jillian dropped when Alexis jumped her.. Alexis looks like she doesn't know what to make of this.. The enemy of her 'real' boss is only feet away from her.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] Alexis.. I want you to know right now..

-[[ You can tell Hardy is still pumped from the adrenaline of running of Masters.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] What I did here tonight.. Wasn't for Raven..

-[[ She just stares at him.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] Because you can bet your ass.. I'm still taking his title at Total Destruction..

-[[ Where's he going with this? ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] I did this tonight.. Because all of this.. It's between Raven... And Matt Hardy!

-[[ He points at the ramp.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] Not Raven.. And Chris Masters!

-[[ Hardy looks angrier than before.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] Raven.. I know you're sittin' in a hospital bed watchin' this, man.. I want you to know.. I'm holdin' down the fort.. I'm protectin' your people, man.. I'm keepin' The Masterpiece at bay.. Because like I said.. I want you to forget.. Chris Masters..... And focus... On me!

-[[ The fans begin booing loudly.. Realizing this was another selfish act on the part of Matt Hardy.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] Alexis.. Stand up.. Please..

-[[ Slowly, she does.. Looking weary and keeping her distance.. Nick Patrick and the Meanie are still out. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] I want you to know.. This is between me and Raven.. Not me and you.. Do you understand me?

-[[ She's hesitant.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] At Total Destruction.. Raven's Rules.. I'm gonna do a whole lot of horrible things to him.. And when the smoke clears.. I'm gonna have both championship belts.. And Raven... Maybe he'll walk away.. Maybe he won't.. I don't know.. I can't make promises.. I just know......

-[[ He looks up at the ceiling.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] I want to... Hurt Raven..

-[[ Hardy looks back down, rubbing his chin.. Smiling now.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] But he.. Likes pain..

-[[ He looks at Alexis now.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] Before I go any further, Alexis.. I want to reiterate..

-[[ He takes a few steps closer to her.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] This is between me and Raven... I have no desire to hurt you..

-[[ His eyes go dark.. His smile disappears.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] But to get his attention.. To hurt.. Him.....

-[[ He gets closer.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] I have to.

-[[ He kicks her in the gut suddenly and pulls her head underneath his arm.. He throws his other arm out.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] V-ONE-AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

-[[ TWIST OF FATE! ]]-

-[[ The fans erupt in boos as Hardy springs right up, tilting his head back and throwing the cross pose out with the V-One hand sign extended on both sides.. Hardy stands still in that position for a bit, basking in the crowd response.. He slowly turns his head back toward her, grinning a psychotic grin.. He picks the microphone back up.. ]]-


-[[ Louder boos.. ]]-


-[[ No answer, obviously.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] ..I guess not..

-[[ He walks a circle around Alexis as she lays on the mat.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] Maybe this will get your attention..

-[[ He kneels down at Alexis' head and picks her up into a sitting position.. He stands and lets her rest on his knee.. She begins to stir but she is too far gone to realize what's happening.. Hardy raises her arm and holds her hand in his.. He looks at the Golden-Tron like he expects Raven to appear on it at any second.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] Don't worry about Masters.. Don't worry about Kane..

-[[ Hardy curls his lip, looking furious. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] Don't even worry.. About the pain in your body at this very moment, Raven.....

-[[ He separates her fingers and clutches one in his fist.. ]]-

[ Matt Hardy ] Because your pain... IS RIGHT HERE!

-[[ Snap. ]]-

-[[ She comes to life in his hands, screaming and kicking, he holds her in place, grabs another.. ]]-

-[[ SNAP. ]]-

-[[ She's doing everything she can to kick and claw herself away from him but he's got a death grip on her.. He takes one more finger in his hand... Smiling like a mad man...... And just as he's about to twist.... CHRIS BENOIT HITS THE RING!! The fans erupt!! Hardy pushes her aside and meets Benoit halfway across the ring!! The two begin trading punches with Benoit giving Hardy nothing but resistance!! Benoit blocks a punch from Hardy.. KNIFE EDGE CHOP! He chops away at Hardy as the fans "OHH!" and "AHH!" with each one! Hardy throws another wild punch but Benoit ducks it and catches him... RELEASE GERMAN SUPLEX!! Matt Hardy rolls out of the ring, holding his lower back.. Hardy backs up the ramp, raising the V-One hand sign as the fans boo... Chris Benoit checks on Alexis, who clutches her hand, screaming and crying.. Benoit stares down the ramp at Hardy, furious.. ]]-

-[[ Benoit is BACK! ]]-

Matt Hardy versus Ric Flair
Title on the Line: None
Stipulation: None
Referee: Scott James

-[[ Ric Flair stands in his corner, obviously in no condition to compete after the beating he received at the hands of Rob Conway earlier tonight, but it's not in Flair's nature to forfeit a major match against a competitor like Hardy.. Flair has a bandage plastered across his forehead, blood seeps through it and Flair's eyes are hollow, staring straight ahead at his opponent.. Flair slowly lumbers out of the corner, obviously not all there.. Matt Hardy walks out toward, smiling evilly.. They lock up and Hardly quickly takes Flair over with a headlock.. And then punches him right on top of the head.. Hardy releases the hold and lets Flair stagger back and fall on his ass.. Hardy laughs.. He walks over and pulls Flair to his feet.. He hooks him quickly for the Twist of Fate but Flair has enough of his wits left to push Hardy forward into the ropes! Hardy comes back toward Flair and Flair nails him with an eye poke and a weak chop.. Hardy winces in pain and kicks Flair right in the gut.. Hardy bounces off the ropes and nails Flair right in the head with a forearm shot.. Flair goes down hard.. Hardy pulls him back to his feet and whips him into the turnbuckle.. Hardy charges in after him, going for a splash... But Flair moves! Hardy gets all turnbuckle and Flair school boys him out of the corner! One! Two! Thr-- No! Hardy kicked out! Hardy gets up, looking furious.. Flair still isn't all there.. He uses the ropes to pull himself up.. Hardy jumps on him, punching and kicking away at him.. And Hardy rips off Flair's bandage.. Blood goes all over the place, draining down Flair's face.. Hardy shoves the bandage in Flair's mouth and then punches him.. Flair spits it out, trying to fight back and hit Hardy with anything he has left, but it's just not enough.. Hardy slaps away a chop attempt and kicks Flair in the gut......... TWIST OF FATE! He covers him.. One! Two! Three! Matt Hardy was just.. Undeniably ruthless! Hardy stands over Flair's bloody body and strikes the cross pose, smiling sadistically as the fans boo.. ]]-

Winner: Matt Hardy via Pin Fall

-[[ We cut backstage where we see Simon Dean and Booker T. standing in the backstage area.. Booker T. is swinging his head around, his hair going all over the place while Simon Dean stands there with a big goofy smile on his face.. No one knows what the hell is going on.. Booker T., however, begins speaking. ]]-

[ Booker T. ] NAW, DAWG!! I'ma give him my axe kick!!

-[[ Booker T. kicks in the air.. ]]-

[ Booker T. ] CHYEAH!!!

-[[ And then he pretends to slap the mat three times. ]]-

[ Booker T. ] Booka' T. is the winna', sucka'!

-[[ Simon Dean begins hopping in place, smiling huge. ]]-

[ Simon Dean ] Wow! You're really jumping the gun!

-[[ Booker T. looks confused. ]]-

[ Booker T. ] 'Chu mean, dawg?

[ Simon Dean ] Here's the game plan--

-[[ Simon Dean makes quotation fingers. ]]-

[ Simon Dean ] Brother!

-[[ Simon Dean laughs. ]]-

[ Simon Dean ] I'll stay on the apron! While you get pinned!

-[[ Simon gives Booker T. a double thumbs up. ]]-

[ Simon Dean ] YEAH!

-[[ Booker T. doesn't know what to say. ]]-

[ Simon Dean ] Because if you think we're winning this match.. Then you are.. A total! Ignorant! Asshole!

-[[ He slaps Booker T. on the shoulder. ]]-

[ Simon Dean ] See you in the main event--

-[[ More quotation fingers. ]]-

[ Simon Dean ] My brother!

-[[ Simon Dean jogs off out of the room as Booker T. stands there in shock.. ]]-

[ Booker T. ] Tell me... He did NOT.. Just say that!

-[[ As Simon Dean disappears, Booker T. stands there, shaking his head... And then.. Rob Conway walks into the shot, smiling with his sun glasses on.. Michelle McCool trails behind him, perhaps to keep him in check.. However, he can only go a few seconds without offending someone. ]]-

[ Rob Conway ] Hey, Booker-man!

-[[ Booker T. slowly turns his head toward Conway.. ]]-

[ Rob Conway ] Great match tonight! That's tough luck!

-[[ Booker T. stays silent for a bit but then it gets to him.. ]]-

[ Booker T. ] Man, what tha' hell is yo' problem?

-[[ Conway laughs.. ]]-

[ Rob Conway ] Problem? I don't have a problem.. Just look at me.

-[[ He points at McCool with this thumbs.. ]]-

[ Rob Conway ] Hell, look at her.

-[[ He smiles big. ]]-

[ Rob Conway ] She's like milk.. She does a body good.

-[[ A pause. ]]-

[ Rob Conway ] MY body, at least.

-[[ HORRIBLE ONE LINER - He winks at Booker T... She rolls her eyes. ]]-

[ Booker T. ] Man.. Get out o' my face, son.. I don't give a damn--

-[[ Conway points behind Booker T. eyes wide. ]]-

[ Rob Conway ] Look out, it's Chris Masters!

-[[ Booker T. spins around quickly, eyes wide.. And Conway BLASTS him from behind with a forearm!! Booker T. goes down hard and Conway begins stomping away at him repeatedly until Booker T. stops moving.. ]]-

[ Rob Conway ] CONNED, BITCH!

[ Michelle McCool ] Why did you do that?!

[ Rob Conway ] Don't question the Con Man.

-[[ He smirks... ]]-

[ Rob Conway ] Besides.. I didn't lie.. There WAS a Masterpiece behind him..

-[[ He puts on his sun glasses.. ]]-

[ Rob Conway ] ..Me!

-[[ Fade. ]]-

-[[ We cut to an area backstage where the Rock is standing with a microphone in his hand.. The Rock stands there, still in his wrestling gear after his match with Triple H.. The Rock looks furious.. He begins speaking. ]]-

[ The Rock ] Just when ya' think ya' might get a competitive match out o' someone on Saturday Night Stroke, that New York jack ass and his goons have to charge in and mess everything up!

-[[ Boos. ]]-

[ The Rock ] Well, the Rock says this..

-[[ Anticipation.. ]]-

[ The Rock ] Vince Russo wants to wage a war against pure wrestlin' and peddle his version of entertainment upon all of the Rock's fans........ Upon all of the Rock's... People.. Well, ya' might say to yourself.. Rocky.. Yo Rock! Aren't you the guy who calls himself... THE MOST.. ELECTRIFYING MAN.. IN SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT!?

-[[ The Rock tilts his head down, eye balling the camera.. ]]-

[ The Rock ] And the Rock says...

-[[ Pause. ]]-

[ The Rock ] ..Yes.

-[[ Pop. ]]-

[ The Rock ] But the Rock is no fool! Oh NO, mama, the Rock.. Knows.. Where he came from!

-[[ The Rock nods, getting into this.. ]]-

[ The Rock ] The Rock knows.. That without pure wrestlin'.. Without Lou Thesz.. Without Bruno Sammartino or Bob Backlund.. Hell, even without Bret "The Hitman" Hart and "The Canadian Crippler" Chris Benoit... We.. Would not be.. Where we are today! OH NO!

-[[ The fans are buzzing.. Going crazy for everything the Rock has to say.. ]]-

[ The Rock ] Now.. The Rock didn't want to get involved in this.. But the Rock didn't bring the fight to Vince Russo.. Vince Russo brought his fight............ TO THE ROCK!

-[[ Huge pop. ]]-

[ The Rock ] And now.. The Rock has a suggestion.. Ya' got a three way dance at the pay-per-view.. Total Destruction! Yeah! The Rock says... If ya' have a three way dance.. Why not make it a four way dance.. With the big red retard, Kane! The creepy little bastard, Alex Shelley! THA' GAME-AAHHHHH Triple H!

-[[ He tilts his head back.. ]]-


-[[ CHRIS JERICHO blasts the Rock from behind with a forearm!! The Rock goes sprawling forward and Chris Jericho stays on him, kicking away at the Rock and then dropping down to punch away at his head!! He yanks the Rock up off of the ground and whips him into the wall.. Follows him in.. And hits a running ENZIGURI ON HIM!! The Rock goes down and doesn't move.. Chris Jericho stares down at him, yanking at his ponytail over his shoulder.. Jericho grits his teeth.. ]]-

[ Chris Jericho ] Screw you, Rocky... You don't deserve a title shot..

-[[ He's breathing hard, almost out of breath.. ]]-

[ Chris Jericho ] But I do.. Because I'm Y2J, baby... But a title shot.. Can wait..

-[[ Jericho smiles.. ]]-

[ Chris Jericho ] Because I've had words with Dubba-Dubba-J.. And I've got my own match at Total Destruction.. With you... You call yourself the People's Champion.. Well.... I hate the people, Rocky.. And at Total Destruction.. I'm going to take.. Them.. Away from you....

[ Kurt Angle ] To kick ass.

-[[ Cena seems intrigued now.. ]]-

[ Kurt Angle ] But I'm not lowering myself to get in the ring with you at Total Destruction.. Until you've proven yourself..

[ Kurt Angle ] YEAAAAAAAAH!!

-[[ Fade. ]]-

-[[ The Sandman and Balls Mahoney make their entrances and stand in the ring, waiting for Rob Conway.. But instead.. Rob Conway's music doesn't hit.. As the Sandman and Balls stand there, a Singapore cane in the Sandman's hand.. A chair in Mahoney's... Another man's entrance music hits.. ]]-


-[[ "HEAD!" ]]-

-[[ Al Snow slowly walks out onto the ramp with Head tucked under one arm.. And the Hardcore championship that he stole from the Sandman last week under the other... He looks nervous.. He makes his way to the ring and calls for a microphone.. He receives it.. The Sandman and Balls look at each other and then at Snow.. Al begins to speak.. ]]-

[ Al Snow ] Okay.. Okay.. Okay! Let me explain..

-[[ He clears his throat.. ]]-

[ Al Snow ] Last week.. I got a little bit out of control.. Yeah, I admit it.. And me and Head.. We stole your belt, Sandman.. And I know you're pissed.. Dammit, you have every right to be.. But I'm out here right now.. To tell you straight up.. Man to man.. That... I'm sorry... Here's your belt.

-[[ Al Snow holds out the title belt.. The Sandman looks disgusted.. ]]-

[ Al Snow ] Take it, man. It's yours.

-[[ The Sandman walks up and yanks the title out of his hand.. And then he takes the microphone. ]]-

[ The Sandman ] Thanks, asshole.

-[[ And then Singapore canes him right in the face! Al Snow veers around, clutching his forehead and walks right into an Earth shattering chair shot from Balls Mahoney! The chair actually bends so much that it breaks into pieces! Al Snow drops, completely unconscious, possibly dead.. Sandman and Balls then pick him up and dumps him over the top rope and to the floor... Balls picks up Head and holds it in the air as the fans chant "BALLS! BALLS! BALLS!" and he flings it into the tenth row! The fans pop huge.. Balls and Sandman then wait on their match to begin. ]]-

Rob Conway versus Balls Mahoney versus The Sandman
Title on the Line: None
Stipulation: Hardcore Rules - Single Fall
Referee: Charles Robinson

-[[ Before the match even starts, Rob Conway trips entering the ring and begins complaining of a knee injury.. Trainers and EMTs come down to check on him.. They pull down his knee pad and one of them begins checking him out.. One of them shakes his head and motions for them to get Conway out of there.. Conway looks shocked.. And then furious that he's not being allowed to compete.. Michelle McCool is complaining and trying to get them to reconsider but they're saying Conway must get medical attention.. As Conway is being helped to the back with his knee problem, Charles Robinson orders Balls and Sandman to begin the match, one on one.. They begin trading punches right out of the gate and Balls clotheslines the Sandman over the top rope! Balls follows him out and they begin brawling on the side of the ring where the announce tables are located.. The Sandman slams Balls' face down hard into the ring announce table and Balls immediately returns the favor! They two begin trading punches again and the Sandman kicks Balls in the gut and goes for a suplex but Balls reverses it and suplexes the Sandman on top of the announce table! It doesn't break! Balls grabs one of the monitors from the table and brings it down hard on the Sandman's head! He hits him again and again until the screen shatters.. Balls flips Sandman over on the table and covers him.. One.. Two.. Thr-- The Sandman barely got a shoulder up.. Balls pulls the Sandman off of the table and begins punching at him.. The Sandman returns with some punches of his own.. Balls goes to whip Sandman into the ring steps but Sandman reverses it and sends Balls into the ring steps.. Sandman goes fishing underneath the ring and finds... His Singapore cane! The fans erupt.. Sandman begins blasting Balls with the cane, beating him as he tries to escape up the ramp.. Balls kicks Sandman in the gut and takes the cane away from him.. He begins popping the Sandman with it, trying to knock him down, but instead he only knocks him closer to the edge of the ramp.. Balls hits him across the head with it and the cane shatters! Blood trickles down the Sandman's forehead.. And Balls screams in rage.. And tackles the Sandman off of the stage and through two tables on the concrete floor! Both men lay motionless....... And... The fuck? ]]-

...Just look at me! Ain't I a sight to see? The whole damn world wants to--


Rob Conway's entrance music hits.. And he makes his full entrance with Michelle McCool by his side.. The Conman's knee is FINE! He's conned the world again!! Conway casually climbs down the edge of the ramp and walks cockily over toward the two men laying in the wooden rubble.. Conway gently kneels down between them.. And places a hand on each of their chests.. One.. Two.. Three! This is ridiculous! Rob Conway has done NOTHING to deserve this victory! NOTHING! He's just CONNED Balls Mahoney and The Sandman! ]]-

Winner: Rob Conway via Pin Fall

-[[ The backstage area is frantic.. EMTs and officials are swarming around a screaming Alexis Laree as they try to tend to her broken fingers.. Chris Benoit stands outside the circle of people that are trying to hold her down.. She's gone absolutely belligerent with pain.. Benoit finally snaps. ]]-


-[[ They turn and look at him like he's gone mad.. Benoit turns around, running his hands over his head.. He storms out of the room.. Benoit looks frustrated.. Truly, this couldn't have been how he saw himself returning to Solid Gold.. ]]-

[ Chris Benoit ] ..Christ.

-[[ He leans against the wall, looking drained.. And then.. The yellow polo shirt becomes visible.. "The Franchise" Shane Douglas storms into the shot with a big grin on his face.. He motions for his camera man to follow him closer to Benoit and then raises the microphone.. ]]-


-[[ Benoit snaps and yanks the microphone out of Shane's hand and plugs him with it right in the temple! Shane Douglas staggers back, clutching the side of his head and begins running away down the hall as Benoit stares in his direction, fuming mad... Benoit turns to Douglas' camera man.. He raises the microphone.. ]]-

[ Chris Benoit ] Is this... THIS.. What Solid Gold Wrestling.. Has become!?

-[[ He stares hard into the camera.. ]]-

[ Chris Benoit ] Matt... Hardy...

-[[ A pause. ]]-

[ Chris Benoit ] .....MATT... HARDY....

-[[ Another pause.. ]]-

[ Chris Benoit ] Pray... To God... That he finishes you.. At Total Destruction..

-[[ His voice is low, gravelly.. ]]-

[ Chris Benoit ] ...Pray...

[ Doug Basham ] What's your match?

[ John Bradshaw Layfield ] I don't know yet.. But I'll have one.. And I will damn sure WIN IT!!

-[[ He gets in Doug's face.. ]]-

[ John Bradshaw Layfield ] Because THAT is what I do!! I WIN MATCHES!!

-[[ Layfield turns back around and continues.. They see the limousine, where Orlando Jordan is waiting in a pair of brown slacks, a white, button-up dress shirt, suspenders and a bowler cap.. A small monkey is perched on his shoulder.. Layfield heads toward the limousine and Orlando opens the back door for him. ]]-

[ Orlando Jordan ] 'Chu lookin' mighty dappa' t'day, missa' Layfield!

-[[ Layfield begins to climb inside the limo.. ]]-

[ Orlando Jordan ] Is you sad, boss? You want me to do a dance fo' chu?

-[[ Orlando does a quick tap dancing exhibition as the Bashams climb into the limo behind Layfield and shut the door right in Orlando's face.. Orlando looks down and then feeds a piece of cracker to the monkey on his shoulder.. ]]-

[ Orlando Jordan ] Chu know, Frosty.. If I could be like 'dat.. If I could live one day.. In 'dose shoes..

Awesome pumps his fists Ultimate Warrior style.. ]]-


-[[ He storms off.. Skipper follows him, shaking his head.. ]]-

[ Elix Skipper ] What the fuck are you talkin' about, Mike!?

-[[ After a few seconds, the back door to the limousine opens and Layfield sticks his head out.. ]]-

[ John Bradshaw Layfield ] Are we leaving or not!?

-[[ And then he sees Orlando laid out across the hood.. ]]-


-[[ A pause.. He sees the blood draining off the side of the hood.. ]]-
