STROKE: Caged Heat | July 1st, 2006 | Live From: Mobile, Alabama | Commentators: Joey Styles & Don Callis

-[[ We cut to the backstage area where we see Lance Storm sitting in a folding chair, putting on his gear.. The SGW World title is resting over his knee as he straightens up his kick pads.... Storm appears to be fully into this mode, mentally prepping for his match with Austin later tonight.. He hears footsteps behind him.. Someone stops close.. Storm goes rigid, wondering if he should expect an attack.. But none ever comes.. He only hears the voice.. And immediately recognizes it.. He doesn't relax. ]]-

[ Carlito ] Lance.. Storm.. SGW World Champion...

-[[ He nods, smiling. ]]-

[ Carlito ] Das' cool.

-[[ A pause.. ]]-

[ Carlito ] Know what else is cool, Lance Storm?

-[[ Storm doesn't answer him. ]]-

[ Carlito ] Carlito.. Unifying his belt.. With YOUR belt.. Next week.. On Stroke!

-[[ Carlito goes serious for a second.. ]]-

[ Carlito ] But most of all.. Carlito.. Getting revenge for you spitting in de' face of your home.. APW!

-[[ Storm stands up, grabbing the SGW title as he does.. He turns around and faces Carlito.. Carlito has the APW Championship over his shoulder.. He stands his ground as Storm goes face to face with him. ]]-

[ Lance Storm ] Let me make one thing perfectly clear, Carlito..

-[[ Dramatic pause. ]]-

[ Lance Storm ] What I have done here in Solid Gold Wrestling.. Has nothing to do.. With All-Pro Wrestling.

-[[ Storm is dead serious.. Carlito has really gotten under his skin. ]]-

[ Lance Storm ] My choice to come here.. Was not because I am anti-APW..

-[[ He points in Carlito's face.. ]]-

[ Lance Storm ] Nor was it because I am pro-SGW..

-[[ Carlito looks around.. Storm takes a step forward, making Carlito take one back.. ]]-

[ Lance Storm ] I am pro-wrestling.. Pro-world championships.....

-[[ And the exclamation point. ]]-

[ Lance Storm ] And pro-Lance Storm.

-[[ Carlito reaches behind him and pulls an apple from nowhere.. He tosses it in the air.. ]]-

[ Carlito ] You better take a step away from Carlito, Lance Storm.. Or--

-[[ He tosses it in the air again.. It doesn't come back down.. Carlito's eyes go wide.. He slowly turns around and sees the apple in someone else's hand.. A hand that belongs to "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.... ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] Or what, son?

-[[ Carlito stammers for words but Austin speaks before he does. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] You gonna spit in his face?

-[[ Carlito opens his mouth but Austin stops him. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] ..What?

[ Carlito ] Carlito was--

[ Steve Austin ] ..WHAT?!

[ Carlito ] Carlito--

[ Steve Austin ] Were you gonna spit in the face of the SGW World Champion!?

-[[ Carlito is sweating bullets. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] Because if ya' spit in the face of the SGW World Champion.. You're spittin' in the face of SGW!!

-[[ Austin gets right in Carlito's face.. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] And that means you're spittin' in the face.. OF STONE COOOOLD.. STEVE AUSTIN!!

-[[ Spit flies from his mouth as he yells at Carlito.. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] ..HELL YEAH!!

-[[ Carlito is breathing heavily.. ]]-

[ Carlito ] Jeff Jarrett says.. You can not touch Carlito!

-[[ Austin almost laughs in his face.. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] Do you think I give a damn about Jeff Jarrett and his.. Orders!?

-[[ He suddenly snaps. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] HELL NO!!

-[[ Austin takes a big bite of Carlito's apple and begins chewing it.. He chews it for a while, Carlito knows what's coming.. Austin stops chewing, stares Carlito right in the face..... Carlito braces for it.. And Austin-- ......Swallows. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] Get the hell out of my sight, kid.

-[[ Carlito takes his belt and walks away.. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] Pray to God it ain't me ya' face next week.

-[[ Carlito disappears around the corner.. Austin and Storm are left alone.. Austin looks at the belt and then up at Storm.. They lock eyes.. They clearly don't like each other.. But there's some semblance of respect here.. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] No interference.. No bullshit.

-[[ A pause. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] Just us and that cage..

-[[ Storm doesn't break his gaze. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] That means whoever wins.. They deserve that belt..

-[[ Another pause. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] You ready for this?

-[[ Storm nods. ]]-

[ Lance Storm ] I am.

-[[ Austin stares him hard in the face, maybe hoping for some insecurities to show on Storm's face.. They don't. ]]-

[ Steve Austin ] ...Good.

-[[ Austin takes one last look at the belt and turns to walk away.. As Austin walks away, we cut to another part of the backstage area where we see Carlito Caribbean Cool still escaping with his championship belt.. He looks furious that he's been disrespected and he kicks open the exit door and walks out into the parking lot... And he's suddenly blasted from behind.. BY ROB VAN DAM!! Rob Van Dam stands over Carlito in a pair of shorts.. And an 'APW' t-shirt.. Paul Heyman walks out of the shadows, smiling that Cheshire cat's grin... Carlito stares up at Van Dam and Heyman in shock.. Heyman walks closer, staring down at Carlito.. ]]-

[ Paul Heyman ] Carlito, Carlito, Carlito......

-[[ Heyman laughs. ]]-

[ Paul Heyman ] The audacity of you.. The BALLS!

-[[ Van Dam nods, looking pissed. ]]-

[ Paul Heyman ] APW World Champion? You're not the APW World Champion!

-[[ He points at Van Dam.. ]]-

[ Paul Heyman ] This man.. Was the last REAL APW champion!!

-[[ Van Dam points at himself with his thumbs. ]]-

[ Paul Heyman ] ROB.. VAN.. DAM!!

-[[ Carlito clutches the belt tightly.. ]]-

[ Paul Heyman ] And I've already had a word with Mister Jarrett.. And you're not facing the winner of the SGW World Title match next week.. OH NO!! You see.. What's fair is fair, Carlito.. And what's fair.. Is Rob Van Dam taking back what belongs to him.. NEXT WEEK ON STROKE!!

-[[ Van Dam smiles. ]]-

[ Rob Van Dam ] And THAT.. Is cool!

-[[ He nods to himself.. ]]-

[ Paul Heyman ] And of course, once you're out of the way.. Rob Van Dam will move on into the main event of the NEXT week's show.. And defeat the SGW World Champion.. To unify THAT belt.. With the REAL world title.. The APW WORLD TITLE!!

[ Rob Van Dam ] Main event of WrestleBrawl.. Here I come!

-[[ Heyman laughs, rubbing his hands together. ]]-

[ Paul Heyman ] See you next week... Champ!

-[[ He cackles loudly and walks away, leaving Carlito on the ground by himself.. ]]-

[ Carlito ] Dat.... Das NOT cool...

-[[ Fade. ]]-

Winner: John Cena via Pin Fall

-[[ Orton leaves the ring where Cena is still laying... Kurt Angle slowly gets up on the outside and pulls himself up onto the apron.. He sees Cena begin to stir and push himself up... Slowly but surely, both men are standing in the ring... Cena turns around and sees Kurt Angle eye balling him.. Both men stare hard at the other.. And Cena wanders toward the ropes.. Calling for a microphone.. He receives it.. The fans are going nuts for Cena.. He slowly raises the microphone to his mouth, his eyes never leaving Angle... He speaks. ]]-

[ John Cena ] Let's get one thing straight, Kurt..

-[[ Kurt is shaking all over, he wants to destroy Cena.. ]]-

[ John Cena ] Don't unda'estimate me.

-[[ They're almost nose to nose now.. ]]-

[ John Cena ] 'Cause these eyes you lookin' into right now.. These ain't the eyes of just.. Some otha' wrestler.. Nah.. It ain't like that.. You're starin' into the eyes of a desperate man... A man that's got nothin' to lose.. Everything to gain.. Surrounded by the enemy, the odds are stacked.. It ain't lookin' too good... But dammit, I ain't givin' up for nothin'!! Because jus' like our troops over in Iraq, I've got a goal.. I'M A SOLJA' FIGHTIN' MY WAY OUT!!

HIGH SPIRIT!! Cena is out.. Cabana and Angle get their shots in and Angle grabs Cena's microphone.. ]]-

[ Kurt Angle ] You idiot, Cena.. You've got no integrity, no intensity.. No intelligence..

[ Kurt Angle ] You little punk.. How dare you disrespect me!?

[ Kurt Angle ] It's true.. It's DAMN true!

-[[ He throws the microphone down.. ]]-

-[[ We fade up.. And your screen is filled with this graphic.. ]]-

-[[ When it fades, you see Shane Douglas sitting in a folding chair in the back, wearing only under a pair of white underwear and going to town on a bowl of Cheerios... Douglas sees the graphic on his monitor and spits Cheerios all over the screen, eyes wide, cheeks puffed out like an angry monkey.. Milk streams down his disgusting hairy chest and over his round stomach.... He finally speaks. ]]-

[ Chris Jericho ] Y2J IS BACK, BAY-BEE!!

-[[ He stops and stares into the camera.. ]]-

[ Chris Jericho ] And I'm not here for Steve-O Austin.. He's old news.. You see.. He can hold on to that memory he has of beating me in my last match a few weeks ago.. Because now that's he's out of the main event thanks to my fellow Canadian, Lance Storm... He's going to need all the MEMORIES he can get, baby..

-[[ He smiles.. ]]-

[ Chris Jericho ] Because his glory days.. Are behind him..

-[[ He puts his hands on his hips, smiling that movie star smile. ]]-

[ Chris Jericho ] But Chris Jericho's glory days? Oh yeah.. They're right up ahead! They're right there! You can almost SEE THEM!! I GOTTA PUT ON SUN GLASSES, BECAUSE MY FUTURE IS SO BRIGHT, JERKY!!

-[[ Bischoff and Stephanie are taking great amusement in this.. ]]-

Winners: Alex Shelley & Rob Conway via Pin Fall

-[[ Randy Orton is walking through the backstage area with a smug look on his face.. He's obviously pissed over the outcome to his match, not caring in the least that it was all his fault.. Everyone avoids Orton, still not fully knowing what he's all about since his big return.. He stops in front of his dressing room and as he places his hand on the door knob, he's tapped on the shoulder.. Orton turns around and his face is immediately washed over with confusion.. ]]-

[ Randy Orton ] The hell are you?

You only a see a man in a black hoody.. He's got a package in his hand.. Wrapped up like a Christmas gift, complete with a big orange bow.. The man in the hoody pushes the box into Orton's hands and turns around to walk away.. As he turns toward the camera, he removes the hoody and you immediately recognize the man... What the hell? Tommy Dreamer? Tommy Dreamer disappears from the camera shot as Orton looks down at the box.. ]]-

[ Randy Orton ] ..Whatever.

Orton opens his dressing room door and walks inside.. He places the box on his vanity table and begins carefully unwrapping it.. He opens up the box inside and smiles when he sees what's inside... He reaches both hands in and lifts the object out.. The Taz urn.. The remains of the man he killed all those months ago.. Orton shakes his head.. ]]-

[ Randy Orton ] How thoughtful.

Orton shakes the urn, there's still ashes inside. ]]-

[ Randy Orton ] Time to kill you once and for all, buddy..

Orton turns toward his bathroom.. He opens the door and admires himself in the bathroom mirror, holding the urn.. A laugh escapes Orton's mouth as he turns toward the toilet.. He's going to flush Taz once and for all, finishing what he started so long ago.. Orton has a big smile on his face as he unscrews the lid of the urn and as it comes off........ ]]-

BANG! ]]-

Sparks fly from the urn and smoke begins billowing out of it.. Orange smoke!! Orton staggers back, dropping the urn.. Orton stops in front of his mirror and begins running his sink.. He splashes his face with water, trying to fight off the heat from the small explosion.. ]]-

[ Randy Orton ] What the hell... God dammit!!

He tries waving the smoke out of his face, staring into the mirror.. ]]-

[ Randy Orton ] ..I am not the man.. With whom you want to play.. Practical jokes!!

The smoke begins to clear.. There's a figure behind Orton in the mirror but he doesn't see it yet.. ]]-

[ Randy Orton ] I'm the Legend Killer.. I am.. The Godsend.. I.. Am not.. A JOKE!!

And the figure becomes clear.. Orton's eyes go wide.... Oh.. My.. Holy.. God!! ]]-

TAZ!!!!!! ]]-

Taz springs onto Orton's back.. TAZMISSION!! TAZMISSION ON RANDY ORTON!! HOLY SHIT, TAZ IS BACK!! TAZ WHIPS ORTON AROUND IN THE TAZMISSION!! HOW.. IN THE FUCK.. IS TAZ ALIVE!?! ORTON GOES LIMP IN THE TAZMISSION AND TAZ SLINGS HIM FORWARD INTO THE SINK, SHATTERING THE PORCELAIN!! Orton lays unconscious on the bathroom floor.. Taz stands over him, breathing heavily.. Taz kneels down over Orton's body.. ]]-

[ TAZ ] I could kill you right now, mutha' fucka'..

Taz smiles a sadistic smile.. ]]-

[ TAZ ] But not now.. Not tonight..

Taz slowly stands up, still staring down at Orton.. ]]-

[ TAZ ] The so-called GODSEND... Is HELLBOUND..

Taz's voice rises.. ]]-


Taz turns and leaves the room as Orton lays motionless on the floor.. My God, Taz has returned, just as Orton did at Total Destruction.. How in the hell has Taz returned?! After a fiery death and weeks of desecration.. How!? HOW!? And what does this mean for the rest of Solid Gold Wrestling!? ]]-

JOHNNY NITRO has won this match!? What the hell is going on here!? ]]-

Winner: Johnny Nitro via Pin Fall(???)

-[[ We cut to a dressing room where we see Vince Russo, Alex Shelley and Rob Conway.. Vince Russo is pacing back and forth, nodding... Rubbing his hands together.. He's got something on his mind.. Alex Shelley has a folding chair turned backward, sitting in it, resting his arms on the back of it.. He watches Russo as he paces, a camera dangling from one of his hands.. Rob Conway is toying with his cell phone, still wearing his sun glasses.. Conway's eyes don't leave the phone when Russo begins speaking.. Meanwhile, Shelley listens intently. ]]-

[ Vince Russo ] I got it.. I fuckin' got it!

[ Alex Shelley ] What've you got, Ru?

[ Shannon Moore ] What's wrong?

[ Matt Striker ] Nothing, Shannon..

-[[ A pause. ]]-

[ Matt Striker ] I'm just.. Thinking.

[ Matt Striker ] Here..

-[[ And then taps his temple. ]]-

[ Matt Striker ] ..Here.

-[[ He looks back at Moore.. ]]-

[ Matt Striker ] Understand?

-[[ Moore nods.. ]]-

[ Matt Striker ] The people of Solid Gold Wrestling have no idea what awaits them when Matt Hardy is well-enough to return to action.. No idea, whatsoever.. But that is why I'm here, Shannon.. While Matt Hardy rests and heals and prepares for his eventual return to glory... To claim the championship that should have been his at Total Destruction.. I will be here.. On Stroke, week after week.. To remind the ignorant masses of his return..

-[[ Moore listens.. ]]-

[ Matt Striker ] To teach them.. That Matt Hardy and his ideals.. That Mattitude.. Is the way.

-[[ Striker seems passionate about this. ]]-

[ Matt Striker ] The sensei's contributions.. His sacrifices he made at Total Destruction.. Will not be forgotten.

-[[ He turns and climbs inside the vehicle.. Moore follows.. What is this leading to? ]]-

-[[ The dressing room door swings open and Randy Orton staggers out, gasping for air.. He uses the door frame to pull himself up.. He looks like he's seen a ghost... Terrified... Orton staggers out of the room and slams into the wall with his shoulder... ]]-

Lance Storm(c) versus "Stone Cold" Steve Austin
Title on the Line: SGW World Heavyweight Championship
Stipulation: Steel Cage Match - Pin Fall | Submission | Escape
Referees: Scott James & Mike Chioda

-[[ Lance Storm and Steve Austin stand in their respective corners as the cage is lowered around them.. Storm has the World Championship around his waist.. He unsnaps it and hands it to Scott James.. Scott James raises the title in the air and then hands it out the cage door to Mike Chioda, who passes it off to the time keeper.. The cage is set firmly in place and James calls for the bell to begin the match.. Austin and Storm emerge from the corners and circle each other for a bit...
