-[[ We fade up in the parking lot where we see Raven walking, already in his wrestling gear, although it appears as though he has just arrived.. Perry Saturn and the Blue Meanie trail behind him.. Perry Saturn has someone slung over his shoulder, their head and upper body covered in a brown, cloth sack.. The Blue Meanie leads a second person, obviously a female by her hands which are bound together with cable ties.. We're seeing Melina and Shannon Moore, held captive by Raven and the remnants of his Flock in retaliation for Matt Hardy's capture of Alexis Laree and Stevie Richards.. Raven has the SGW Intercontinental Championship around his waist.. Meanie and Saturn keep an eye out while it looks like Raven really could not care less... They slowly and casually make their way inside the building as the roar of the crowd becomes more evident.. They've become excited, seeing this take place on the Golden-Tron.. Raven looks around.. ]]-
[ Raven ] All clear.
-[[ He points blindly. ]]-
[ Raven ] Boiler room.
-[[ Saturn moves immediately.. The Meanie swallows.. ]]-
[ The Blue Meanie ] The.. B-..Boiler room?
-[[ Raven doesn't turn around.. He just speaks. ]]-
[ Raven ] Now.
-[[ The Meanie takes off, dragging Melina behind him.. Raven starts to walk in another direction when he's cut off by someone very unlikely.. Raven looks the smiling man up and down.. There's confusion in his voice. ]]-
[ Raven ] Terry Taylor?
-[[ The man extends his hand.. Raven looks down at it.. ]]-
[ Terry Taylor ] Raven.. I'm pleased to meet you.
-[[ Raven looks at Taylor's hand and back up at him. ]]-
[ Raven ] ..Yeah.
-[[ Taylor clears his throat and pulls his hand back.. ]]-
[ Raven ] Did you see Matt Hardy come through here?
-[[ Raven looks over Terry's shoulders anxiously.. ]]-
[ Raven ] ..He probably had a girl with him..
-[[ Terry Taylor shakes his head.. ]]-
[ Terry Taylor ] Ah.. No.. I can't say that I did..
-[[ But then he remembers something. ]]-
[ Terry Taylor ] But.. Did I just see what I think I saw?
-[[ Raven doesn't answer. ]]-
[ Terry Taylor ] Those two guys heading toward the bowels of this building with two people in brown sacks?
-[[ Raven stares him right in the face.. ]]-
[ Raven ] ..Maybe.
-[[ Taylor scratches his head. ]]-
[ Terry Taylor ] Oh..
-[[ A pause. ]]-
[ Terry Taylor ] ..Why?
-[[ Raven looks away.. ]]-
[ Raven ] Matt Hardy took something of mine.. I took something of Matt Hardy's..
-[[ Taylor raises an eyebrow.. ]]-
[ Terry Taylor ] I keep a close eye on Solid Gold Wrestling.. I used to own part of it.. But.. I swear I didn't see anything about this on Solid Gold programming..
-[[ Raven's voice is almost passive. ]]-
[ Raven ] That's because it didn't happen on Solid Gold programming.
[ Terry Taylor ] ..Oh.
-[[ A pause. ]]-
[ Raven ] This is more than.. Match hype..
-[[ He flips his hair out of his face.. ]]-
[ Raven ] This is personal.
[ Terry Taylor ] I understand.
[ Raven ] No, you don't.
-[[ Taylor quickly changes the subject. ]]-
[ Terry Taylor ] Well.. I just wanted to meet you.. Introduce myself.. I was in town and thought I'd drop in and pay the boys a visit.. See how things are going for Solid Gold these days..
-[[ Raven continues looking around, not paying a lot of attention to Taylor.. ]]-
[ Terry Taylor ] As you may or may not know.. I've always been a huge fan of the Intercontinental championship and it was my decision to resurrect it all those years ago when Shane McMahon decided to trash it.. I wanted to wish you luck personally.. That title's got a hard road behind it.. And from the look of the main event.. A hard road in front of it.. And it needs a champion like you to give it the credibility that other's have tried hard to deprive it of..
-[[ Raven shrugs.. ]]-
[ Raven ] Whatever.
-[[ Taylor nods.. He knows Raven has to care more than he lets on. ]]-
[ Terry Taylor ] Best of luck.
-[[ Taylor leaves, allowing Raven to continue his search.. As Raven walks past the interview set, we see Christian standing there with Trish, Cornette and Tomko.. Christian has something in his hand.. What appears to be a title belt.. But it's not an SGW Tag Team title.. Can't be.. Edge has the only other one.. Christian's was destroyed.. The camera zooms in on Christian's face.. ]]-
[ Christian ] This is it, Edge..
-[[ A pause. ]]-
[ Christian ] The final count down.. To the end.. Of your career..
-[[ Christian is shaking with intensity.. He can't wait to get his hands on Edge.. ]]-
[ Christian ] You've said your piece.. And from what I and all of my peeps could tell.. You sure do talk a lot.. You just don't SAY much.. All I've heard since you turned on me.. Is a bunch of whining and crying about how I always got the title shots and you got the short end of the stick..
-[[ Christian's voice is full of venom.. ]]-
[ Christian ] It sounds to me.. Like this isn't about titles..
-[[ Oh yeah? ]]-
[ Christian ] It's about getting the one-up on baby brother.
-[[ Christian takes a step back from the camera and raises the championship belt in the air.. ]]-
[ Christian ] Do you know what this is, Edge?
-[[ Christian slaps the title belt on the center plate.. ]]-
[ Christian ] It's the first world championship belt that I ever won!!
-[[ Christian looks at it, nodding.. Then turns back to the camera.. ]]-
[ Christian ] The All-Star Championship Wrestling.. World.. Heavyweight championship..
-[[ A pause as the fans give a small pop.. ]]-
[ Christian ] If you think you have what it takes to do anything I can do.. This is where you start..
-[[ He nods, smirking.. ]]-
[ Christian ] Yeah, you heard me.. Tonight.. I'm putting it all on the line.. The championship belt that has been in my possession for FOUR YEARS.. The championship belt that no one in this business could take away from me!! The championship that was created around my waist.. And was around my waist when that company DIED!!
-[[ Christian holds the title up, right in the camera's view, the 'ACW' initials glimmer in the light.. ]]-
[ Christian ] And I'm putting it on the line.. Because you're just like everyone else that tried to take it away from me.. The same reason that I got all the opportunities.. That you never did.... Quite simply, bro..
-[[ Christian's voice goes low. ]]-
[ Christian ] Because I.. Am better than you.
-[[ He smirks.. ]]-
[ Christian ] Because that.. Is how I roll.
-[[ Christian cuts to the side.. Leaving Cornette in the shot.. He bobs his head like a black woman.. ]]-
[ Jim Cornette ] Yeah and, well.. Now ya' know!
Cornette swaggers off.
Fade out. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] Keep him back, Show!?
-[[ He yells. ]]-
[ Steve Austin ] YOU'RE PATHETIC!!
-[[ The Big Show isn't budging.. Austin tries to look around at Kennedy. ]]-
[ Steve Austin ] If I wanted to whip your ass... You can BET your ass.. It'd already be WHIPPED!
-[[ Big Show leans forward a bit, separating them even more.. ]]-
[ Steve Austin ] And they ain't nothin'.. Nothin' ya' jolly green giant could do about it!!
-[[ Ken Kennedy places a hand on the Big Show's shoulder and Show steps aside.. Kennedy and Austin are now standing close together.. Only a couple feet separating them.. Austin and Kennedy stand there, looking at each other for a second.. Austin looks Kennedy up and down.. Austin flinches, Kennedy recoils a bit.. Austin smirks.. ]]-
[ Steve Austin ] Ya' hit me with my own damn belt last week..
-[[ Kennedy swallows hard. ]]-
[ Steve Austin ] Now... I want ya' to tell me.. And I want ya' be honest, now, ya' hear?
-[[ Kennedy nods.. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] Yes, Steve..
-[[ Austin looks down for a second.. And then back up into Kennedy's eyes.. ]]-
[ Steve Austin ] Last week.. When ya' put a bump on my noggin with that belt..
-[[ Austin's eyes are cold, going straight through Kennedy. ]]-
[ Steve Austin ] Was that an accident?
-[[ Kennedy opens his mouth to answer, but Austin cuts him off.. ]]-
[ Steve Austin ] Or.. Were ya' tryin' to tell me somethin'?
[ Ken Kennedy ] Steve-
[ Steve Austin ] ..What?
[ Ken Kennedy ] I assure you--
[ Steve Austin ] What?!
[ Ken Kennedy ] It was totally an acc-
[ Steve Austin ] Do ya' want my belt!?
[ Ken Kennedy ] I--
[ Steve Austin ] I SAID DO YOU WANT MY BELT!?
[ Ken Kennedy ] Steve, I--
[ Steve Austin ] IF YA' DON'T ANSWER ME, I'LL STOMP YOUR ASS WHERE YA' STAND!!
[ Ken Kennedy ] YES!!
-[[ Kennedy has sweat dripping off his forehead.. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] YES!! YES!! YES!! I WANT YOUR BELT!!
-[[ He takes a step toward Austin and thumps his finger into Austin's chest.. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] BUT I WILL NOT.. I REPEAT.. I WILL NOT.. SCREW.. YOU.. OVER!!
-[[ Kennedy is shaking with anger after how Austin has pushed him.. Austin smirks.. ]]-
[ Steve Austin ] Hell, son.. All ya' had to do was say yes.
-[[ Kennedy takes a step back, wiping his brow.. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] Dammit, Austin..
-[[ Kennedy extends his hand.. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] Let's just get the job done tonight..
-[[ Austin stares down at his hand.. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] And whoever wins.. Wins..
-[[ Austin still stares down at Kennedy's hand.. ]]-
[ Steve Austin ] After the match, son... After the match.
-[[ Austin turns and walks away, leaving Kennedy and Show alone.. Kennedy looks down at his own hand.. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] After the match.

Winner: Rob Conway via Pin Fall
[ Kurt Angle ] ..YEAH!!
-[[ And he kicks Van Dam right in the face.. Van Dam goes limp.. Angle stands over him, breathing heavily.. Angle then turns and looks at Joey Ryan, who is standing over Sabu.. Angle immediately storms up and puts Ryan against the wall.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] Tonight.. You embarrassed me!
-[[ Joey's voice is strained.. ]]-
[ Joey Ryan ] Man.. I tried to win the match..
-[[ Angle puts some strain on Joey's neck.. ]]-
[ Joey Ryan ] Ergh! What.. More.. Do you want.. From me!?
[ Kurt Angle ] People like... JOHN CENA.. Don't get the upper hand.. On people like me!
[ Joey Ryan ] I can't.. Carry the weight.. Of an entire team!
-[[ Angle drops Ryan.. Ryan falls on his ass. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] An entire team!? AN ENTIRE TEAM!?
-[[ Angle waggles his head around.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] Try carrying the weight of an ENTIRE FREAKIN' COUNTRY!!
-[[ Joey Ryan nods, lightly touching his neck.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] Which is what I did, just so you know.. When I won my Olympic gold medals!!
-[[ Angle puts his hands on his hips.. He stares down at Ryan.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] Well? Are ya' gonna stand up or what?
-[[ Joey Ryan slowly stands up, keeping his eyes on Angle.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] You're a young kid.. Ya' got a bright future ahead of you.
-[[ Ryan nods.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] But from now on.. No more excuses.. Just results.
-[[ Angle opens his arms.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] I'm hard on you because I believe in you..
-[[ He motions for Ryan to come forward. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] Give me a hug.
-[[ Joey Ryan looks around, perhaps wondering if anyone is watching.. And he gently and reluctantly steps into Angle's arms and gives him a hug... Angle holds him tight.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] And shave that ridiculous mustache.
-[[ Ryan rolls his eyes while Kurt can't see them. ]]-
[ Joey Ryan ] ..not shaving my mustache.
-[[ Another voice is heard.. Joey Ryan immediately looks terrified, wondering who witnessed the hug.. Kurt Angle has no shame and he takes his time letting Ryan go.. They turn toward the source of the voice. ]]-
[ Colt Cabana ] Hey, guys.. Group hug?
-[[ Angle shrugs and then pulls them both in for a group hug. They all release. ]]-
[ Colt Cabana ] Kurt.. I couldn't help but overhear you and Joey's conversation..
[ Joey Ryan ] ..You were eavesdropping?
[ Colt Cabana ] ..No, of course not!
-[[ And then he shrugs, nodding. ]]-
[ Colt Cabana ] Alright, yeah.. I was eavesdropping.
[ Kurt Angle ] I admire the honesty.
[ Colt Cabana ] Thanks.
[ Joey Ryan ] Yeah, whatever. Get to the point..
-[[ Cabana.. Gets to the point. ]]-
[ Colt Cabana ] Kurt, brother-man, let me make one thing perfectly clear.. I respect the hell out of you.. I think you're the best wrestler this business has ever seen.. I look up to you.. I want to be like you.. And I'd love to not only be able to call you a friend or a partner.. But a mentor...
-[[ Angle just looks at him, not really responding. ]]-
[ Colt Cabana ] Now, I see you've already taken this guy under your wing.. But I was hoping you'd have room for one more.. I'll do anything I can to prove to you that I'm worth it..
-[[ No response.. ]]-
[ Colt Cabana ] I want to help you take care of business, Kurt.. I'm all about the wrestling!
-[[ Angle is stone faced.. ]]-
[ Colt Cabana ] I'm all about the good times and the good memories, man.. Old school! Classic!
-[[ Still nothing.. ]]-
[ Colt Cabana ] Classic.. Just like when you won your Olympic gold medals!
-[[ Angle then nods, smiling, latching onto Colt's plea. ]]-
[ Colt Cabana ] With a broke freakin' neck!
[ Kurt Angle ] Yeah!
-[[ Angle smiles, slapping Colt on the shoulder. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] You're all right, kid.
-[[ Cabana smiles, thinking he's in. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] Tell you what.. I'll keep an eye on your match with Stevens tonight.. You impress me and we'll talk.
[ Colt Cabana ] Awesome!
-[[ He shakes Kurt's hand. ]]-
[ Colt Cabana ] Thanks, Kurt.. You won't regret it!!
-[[ Cabana leaves Ryan and Angle alone.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] Pretty soon, Joey.. Guys like us are going to rule Solid Gold..
-[[ Angle then raises an eyebrow. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] Guys like me, at least.
-[[ Joey looks a bit offended, but doesn't speak up. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] And do you know why, Joey?
[ Joey Ryan ] Why's that?
[ Kurt Angle ] Because I'm smart.
-[[ A pause as Angle rubs his chin. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] And everyone else.. Is dumb.
-[[ Angle smiles, nodding to himself. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] It's true.
-[[ A pause. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] It's damn true.
The hell? Is Kurt
Angle creating an army out of SGW's young up and comers?!
Title on the Line: ACW World Heavyweight Championship
Referee: Charles Robinson
Stacy Keibler gets in
the ring, wondering what's going on.. Edge looks like he's trying to
console her and explain what just went down but then he just shrugs and
points behind her.. Stacy, frustrated, turns and walks right into.... THE
CHICK KICK!! The impact sends Stacy spiraling around.. AND EDGE SPEARS HER
DOWN!! Edge lays on top of her for a second, laughing and pelvic thrusting
on top of her..
Winner & New ACW World Champion: Edge via Pin Fall
[ Matt Hardy ] Tonight.. It all comes to an end..
-[[ He looks over at Alexis.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] Tonight...... Raven can ignore me.. No more!
-[[ She yanks hard on the cuffs, but they refuse to give. ]]-
[ Alexis Laree ] You're a maniac!!
-[[ Matt Hardy spins around, yelling, the title belt swinging around in his hand.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] I'm a maniac!? ME!? Look at the people you call family!!
-[[ She stares up at him with hate in her eyes.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] Look.. In a mirror.. At your own relfection!
-[[ She looks down.. Hardy stalks up on her.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] People like you.. People like your friend, Raven.. They don't deserve to be treated the same as everyone else... Can you honestly sit there and say with a straight face.. That Raven.. Deserves to breathe the same air..
-[[ He tilts his head back.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] As... V-ONE-AHHHHH!?
-[[ He looks back down, smiling evilly.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] Of course not..
-[[ Striker kneels down next to her.. He runs his hand along her face. ]]-
[ Stevie Richards ] Hey, don't touch'er, asshole!
-[[ Striker ignores him. ]]-
[ Matt Striker ] Hardy's right, Miss Laree..
-[[ He nods to himself.. ]]-
[ Matt Striker ] People like you and Raven..
-[[ Quotation fingers. ]]-
[ Matt Striker ] ..Garbage people, as we call them--
[ Alexis Laree ] Garbage people!?
[ Matt Striker ] Don't interrupt me while I'm speaking.
-[[ He smiles... And then goes back to being serious. ]]-
[ Matt Striker ] As I was saying.. You people.. Deserve to be exterminated.
-[[ Hardy then drops down in front of her.. Looking hard into her face.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] And tonight.. You will be..
-[[ He smiles.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] Because once I'm done with Raven and I've unified the championships.. And put my name in the history books.. FOREVER..... I'm going to find that cross-eyed freak.. And that big, blue butterball..... And I'm going to get Melina and Shannon back.. And when I do..
-[[ His eyes go dark.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] WHEN.. I.. DO... I'm coming back here.. And I'm finishing you.. And Stevie.. OFF!
-[[ He clutches the title tightly within both hands as Alexis stares at him, tears streaming down her face.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] And the whole world.. Will bow at the altar
-[[ He tilts his head back.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] ...OF MATTITUDE!
He laughs maniacally.
