STROKE: The Road to WrestleBrawl | July 22nd, 2006 | Live From: Providence, Rhode Island | Commentators: Joey Styles & Don Callis
-[[ "The Franchise" Shane Douglas is standing by with Kurt Angle and Colt Cabana.. Once again, The Fuckin' Franchise is wearing his wrestling gear despite not having a match.. He's got his microphone in his hand.. Kurt Angle is standing there in a "TAP OUT OR ANGLE SLAM" t-shirt and a pair of red track pants.. Angle looks pleased with himself.. Cabana stands next to Angle, still in his own wrestling gear, smiling smugly with a pair of black shades on.. Shane Douglas begins the interview. ]]-
[ Shane Douglas ] KURT FUCKIN' ANGLE.. TONIGHT.. YOU COST JOHN CENA.. YET ANOTHER FUCKING MATCH!! AND AT WRESTLEBRAWL MOTHER FUCKIN' TWO.. YOU'RE GONNA...... BEAT'IM AGAIN!! HA HA HA!! WHATCHAGOTTASAYBOUTHAT!?
-[[ Angle rubs his chin.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] What do I have to say about that, Shane?
-[[ Angle looks down.. And then back up, smiling evilly. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] You're exactly RIGHT.
-[[ He nods. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] Oh yes.. It's true.. And do you know it's true, Shane?
[ Shane Douglas ] WHY THE FUCK IS IT TRUE, KURT!? I NEED TO KNOW!! I NEED.. THE FUCKIN' SCOOP!!
[ Kurt Angle ] Because I am Solid Gold Wrestling's only.. Olympic gold medalist.. And I won those medals with a broke.. Freakin' neck.. So.. If anyone thinks for a second that I'm going to tap out.. Or say I quit.. To John Cena.. They need to have their head examined.. Oh yeah.. That's true, as well..
-[[ Angle turns and stares into the camera coldly.. ]]-
[ Kurt Angle ] The bottom line is this.. John Cena will never.. And CAN never... Make me tap out-
-[[ John Cena explodes onto the interview set, immediately forcing both forearms into Shane Douglas, sending him flying through the interview set!! Cena kicks Colt Cabana in the gut and pie faces him backward and then he begins trading punches with Kurt Angle!! John Cena has had enough!! He couldn't wait for WrestleBrawl!! Kurt Angle throws a wild, over head punch and Cena ducks it and hits Angle with a drop toe hold.. And locks in the STFU!!!!! KURT ANGLE IS SCREAMING IN PAIN!! AND HE BEGINS TAPPING ON THE FLOOR!! KURT ANGLE IS TAPPING OUT ON THE FLOOR!! JOHN CENA IS YELLING!! ]]-
[ John Cena ] TAP OUT, YOU SON OF A BITCH!! TAP.. OUT!!!
-[[ Security and officials flood the area and try to separate the two as Cena wrenches back on the hold, forcing Angle to tap out repeatedly.. My God, is this a preview of what we'll see at WrestleBrawl!? ]]-
-[[ The interview area. ]]-
-[[ Rob Conway is standing there in front of you with a big smile on his face.. He's still in his wrestling gear, wearing a black, leather biker cap and black sun glasses.. Rob Conway begins speaking. ]]-
[ Rob Conway ] WrestleBrawl Two.. Intercontinental championship..
-[[ He chuckles. ]]-
[ Rob Conway ] Ya' know.. I've done a whole lot of connin' to get where I am right now..
-[[ He nods.. ]]-
[ Rob Conway ] Yep.. Sure have.. So you can only imagine how much it pissed me off when Matt Hardy stuck his nose in my business last week and hit Vince Russo with that chair.. And not only that.. But put himself into MY match.. That I earned!
-[[ Earned!? ]]-
[ Rob Conway ] But.. That's alright.. Because there's not a single situation I've been put in so far that I haven't found a way to.. Con my way out of.. And if that means kickin' Raven.. AND Matt Hardy's asses on the biggest show of the year.. Then I'll be glad to teach you both.. That it's..
-[[ He pulls the sun glasses down to the tip of his nose. ]]-
[ Rob Conway ] The Conway.. Or the highway!
-[[ He laughs. ]]-

Winner: Raven via Pin Fall
[ Ric Flair ] ..Thank you.
-[[ Another huge pop.. ]]-
[ Ric Flair ] Last week.. Jeff Jarrett found out.. That I am STILL.. The dirtiest player.. IN THE GAME!!
-[[ Pop. ]]-
[ Ric Flair ] Jeff Jarrett wants to use loopholes.. On the contract he signed.. IN.. MY.. BLOOD!! FINE!! DO IT!! TWO CAN PLAY AT THAT GAME, PAL!! WOOOOOOO!!
-[[ The fans 'woooooo!' in response. ]]-
[ Ric Flair ] And in eight days.. EIGHT.. DAYS.. Jeff Jarrett is going to find out.. ONCE AND FOR ALL.. That "The Nature Boy" still has one left in him.. ONE TIME.. FOR ALL TIME!! Jeff Jarrett.. I'm GONNA KICK YOUR ASS!!
-[[ Another huge pop.. And then.. Jillian Hall's music hits!? Jillian walks down the ramp with a microphone in her hand.. She gets in the ring and stays a few feet away from Flair.. Flair looks her up and down, holding his microphone at his side.. She begins to speak. ]]-
[ Jillian Hall ] Ric, Ric, Ric....
-[[ Flair raises his microphone, smiling. ]]-
[ Ric Flair ] Jillian, Jillian... Jillian.
-[[ She walks a circle around him.. ]]-
[ Jillian Hall ] Did you really think you'd do what you did to me last week.. And get away with it?
-[[ She walks in front of him, going face to face with him.. ]]-
[ Jillian Hall ] Everyone else around here may respect you.. But I don't.
-[[ Flair just stares at her, emotionless. ]]-
[ Jillian Hall ] I think you're old.. Washed up.. Pathetic..
-[[ Boos.. ]]-
[ Jillian Hall ] And Jeff Jarrett is going to put you in the ground at WrestleBrawl..
-[[ Louder boos.. ]]-
[ Jillian Hall ] What's the matter, Ric? The truth hurts, doesn't it?
-[[ She laughs. ]]-
[ Jillian Hall ] Well... So does this!
-[[ And she slaps him right across the face!! The fans all "Oooooo" in unison. ]]-
[ Jillian Hall ] That was for last week--
-[[ Ric Flair immediately reaches down and trips her!! He grabs one of her legs and begins dancing around it!! He's 'woo-ing' like crazy!! And he puts her in the FIGURE FOUR LEG LOCK!! The fans are erupting!! The roof is coming off of the place!! Jillian Hall is screaming in pain as Flair gets the move in tight!! Jeff Jarrett charges down to the ring in his suit and dives under the bottom rope but Flair breaks the hold and meets Jarrett halfway!! Jarrett stops dead in his tracks and grabs Jillian and pushes her out of the ring, through the middle and top ropes and Flair runs up behind him, trying to get a grip on him, but he's only coming away with pieces of Jarrett's suit!! Jarrett gets out of the ring, his suit in tatters and he grabs Jillian and he practically carries her up the ramp as Ric Flair stands in the ring with the fans chanting his name.. Flair grabs the microphone and speaks.. ]]-
[ Ric Flair ] JEFF.. JARRETT!!
-[[ The fans are cheering so loudly you almost can't hear him. ]]-
[ Ric Flair ] All night long, pal.... Allllllllll.. Night... Loooooong....... WOOOOOOOOO!!
-[[ Huge pop. ]]-
-[[ The interview area again. ]]-
-[[ This time you're looking into the face of Triple H.. Already in his gear, ready to go one on one with Ken Kennedy later tonight.. Triple H stares into the camera, breathing heavily.. Shaking with intensity.. He begins to speak. ]]-
[ Triple H ] I'm going to say this perfectly clear.. And I'm only going to say it once..
-[[ A pause. ]]-
[ Triple H ] I'm looking past Ken Kennedy tonight.. I'm even looking past the Rock at WrestleBrawl Two..
-[[ The hell? ]]-
[ Triple H ] You see.. I have my eyes on a bigger prize.. I have my eyes.. On the SGW World Heavyweight championship.. And the easiest way to get my hands on that.. Is to go through twenty-nine other men in the WrestleBrawl battle royal and become the number one contender.. And that.. Is exactly what I plan.. To do!!
-[[ The fans boo. ]]-
[ Triple H ] I don't care if Edge is the champion.. I don't care if Lance Storm is the champion.. No matter WHO is the champion.. They will know only one word when they step in the ring with me.. And that word.. Is PEDIGREE!!
-[[ Triple H's lip twitches.. ]]-
[ Triple H ] That championship belt is my destiny.. It is what I desire.. It is the only thing that means ANYTHING to me in this world.. And I will not.. NO.. I REFUSE TO GO ANOTHER DAY WITHOUT IT!! On July thirtieth.. At WrestleBrawl Two.. Twenty-nine other men will find out that I deserve that championship.. Because I am the GAME.. THE KING OF KINGS... And I am.. THAT.. DAMN.. GOOD!!

-[[ There's a sound of water dripping. ]]-
-[[ Because one faint, stream of light.. You see a man sitting in the corner of this dark room.. He's by himself.. And you see the gold that rests in a heap next to him.. The SGW Intercontinental Championship.. Raven's face is partially obscured by the darkness.. Another hype video, filmed before his match tonight.. Raven speaks, his voice annoyed.. Pained. ]]-
[ Raven ] One more time..
-[[ Raven sighs. ]]-
[ Raven ] One more time, Matt Hardy sticks his nose in business that doesn't concern him..
-[[ A pause.. Raven raises his index finger in the air. ]]-
[ Raven ] The first time.. It almost got him killed..
-[[ He raises his middle finger now. ]]-
[ Raven ] The second time...
-[[ He shrugs.. His shoulders slump.. ]]-
[ Raven ] I don't care..
-[[ What? ]]-
[ Raven ] I've beaten you, Hardy.. I've moved on and now I'm looking past you and Rob Conway.. I'm looking ahead to the WrestleBrawl battle royal.. Thirty men.. Only one can be the winner.. I said last week that I didn't come here for gold.. But this one...
-[[ Raven touches the crumpled up belt next to him.. ]]-
[ Raven ] Has brought me nothing but pain..
-[[ He moves his hand away from it.. ]]-
[ Raven ] And it's time to try a new one on for size..
-[[ Another pause.. ]]-
[ Raven ] So, Hardy.. Conway.. If you lose.. Fine.. If you win.. I don't care..
-[[ Raven tilts his head back.. ]]-
[ Raven ] Because my destiny doesn't lie.. In our match..
-[[ He stares straight up at the ceiling. ]]-
[ Raven ] It lies.. In WrestleBrawl..
-[[ He shuts his eyes. ]]-
[ Raven ] Quote the Raven.. Nevermore.

-[[ Ken Kennedy, The Big Show and Lollipop are all that you see here.. Kennedy's in his gear, the SGW Television championship around his waist, ready to face Triple H in the main event tonight.. Ken Kennedy has a microphone in his hand, unlike the other interview subjects from tonight.. Kennedy begins speaking into the microphone. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] Ever since I got here in Solid Gold Wrestling.. I have dreamed about one thing.. Becoming the Solid Gold Wrestling.. WORLD.. Heavyweight champion..
-[[ Big Show pats him on the shoulder. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] I've had my fair share of gold here.. Gimmick champion.. Tag team champion..
-[[ He touches the belt around his waist.. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] And the current, reigning Television champion..
-[[ He stares intently into the camera. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] But it seems that every time I get a shot at the big one.. The world championship.. I fall short.. I've been called undeserving.. I've been called.. A choker.. But at WrestleBrawl Two, in just eight, short days.. I will prove to everyone that those two monikers.. Do NOT apply to me..
-[[ He's getting more into it now. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] Because in one night.. I will defeat the former.. FORMER.. FOUR TIME.. SGW World Heavyweight Champion, Scott Steiner.. And then I will go on to defeat twenty-nine other men to become the number one contender to the SGW World Heavyweight Championship..
-[[ He nods.. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] Every time I've had a shot at the title.. It has been in a multi-person situation.. And I have never.. EVERRRR.. Been the one with his shoulders on the mat after the match has concluded.. And that tells me this.. If I can get the champion in a one on one situation.. I can win.. I can do it!!
-[[ He's yelling loudly, face turning red. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] And I promise you.. I PROMISE YOU!! When I win WrestleBrawl Two and I become the number one contender and I receive my one on one title shot.. You WILL hear..
-[[ He tilts his head back.. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] AND THE WINNER OF THE MATCH.... AND NEEEEEEWWWWWWW SOLID GOLD WRESTLING.. WORLD.. HEAVYWEIGHT.. CHAMPIOOOOOOOOON....... MISSSSSSSSSSTEEEEEEEERRRRRR KEEEEEENNNNNNEEEEEEEEDDDDDDYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!
-[[ He looks back down at the camera.. ]]-
[ Ken Kennedy ] ......KENNEDY!!
-[[ Backstage. ]]-
-[[ We see Alex Shelley and Vince Russo walking through the backstage area.. Both men are wearing street clothes because Shelley doesn't have a match tonight.. You hear them talking as they walk closer.. ]]-
[ Vince Russo ] I don't get it.. He ain't givin' us the rules for the Pure title 'til fuckin' WrestleBrawl!
[ Alex Shelley ] That's ridiculous, Ru..
[ Vince Russo ] Fuck it.. Doesn't matta'.. I got anotha' hot idea to get inside his fuckin' head..
[ Alex Shelley ] I'm all ears..
-[[ And he raises the camera. ]]-
[ Alex Shelley ] And eyes!
[ Vince Russo ] Well.. We go back to'is fuckin' house--
-[[ And Alex Shelley is suddenly blasted from behind!! Alex Shelley goes sprawling forward and CHRIS BENOIT grabs Russo by the shirt and slams him backward against the wall!! Shelley runs at Benoit and they begin trading shots until Benoit takes over and nails Shelley with a sickening chop to the chest!! Security floods into the area, trying to separate the two as Benoit yells. ]]-
[ Chris Benoit ] STAY AWAY FROM MY FAMILY!!
-[[ He tries getting at Shelley again.. Shelley looks terrified.. ]]-
[ Chris Benoit ] STAY AWAY!!
-[[ They finally get Benoit out of the area.. Shelley and Russo look at each other with wide eyes. ]]-
[ Alex Shelley ] Ru... What did we do?
The Island Boys
Title on the Line: None
Referee: Charles Robinson
Winners: Edge & Tyson Tomko via Pin Fall
-[[ Jillian Hall is wailing, crying, screaming.. A couple EMTs are looking at her leg as Jeff Jarrett hovers over them, looking pissed off.. Jarrett paces back and forth, walking a circle around them like he doesn't know what else to do.. When suddenly, Johnny Nitro, Trinity and Mark Henry walk into the shot.. Johnny Nitro is fuming mad. ]]-
[ Johnny Nitro ] Did you see what just happened!?
-[[ Jarrett looks up at Nitro. ]]-
[ Jeff Jarrett ] Yeah, I did! I'm pissed off!
-[[ Nitro raises an eyebrow. ]]-
[ Johnny Nitro ] You're pissed off!? I'M PISSED OFF, JEFF!
-[[ Jarrett stops in his tracks and looks at Nitro right in the eyes. ]]-
[ Jeff Jarrett ] Wait a second.. I'm talkin' about Flair.. What the hell are you talkin' about?
[ Johnny Nitro ] Shawn Michaels!
-[[ Jarrett shakes his head, a look of disgust on his face. ]]-
[ Jeff Jarrett ] SCREW SHAWN MICHAELS!
-[[ Nitro puts his hands up in defense. ]]-
[ Johnny Nitro ] Listen, Jeff.. I know you don't care.. But I need something.. I need a favor.
-[[ Jarrett looks at Jillian and back at Nitro. ]]-
[ Jeff Jarrett ] I'm a little busy right now.
[ Johnny Nitro ] It'll only take a second.. Please.
[ Jeff Jarrett ] Well, make it quick.
[ Johnny Nitro ] Tonight.. Shawn Michaels cost me my shot at beating a former world champion in this company.. It seems like I can do anything without having Shawn Michaels right on my back.. So, I'm pitching this.. Since Shawn Michaels has found it SO EASY to get his hands on me over the past few weeks.. We make it difficult for him.. At WrestleBrawl.. I'm saying.. A Gauntlet match!
-[[ Jarrett thinks about it.. ]]-
[ Johnny Nitro ] Where he'll still get to face me.. But first.. He has to beat..
-[[ Mark Henry steps up, pounding his fist into his open palm. ]]-
[ Mark Henry ] ..Me.
-[[ Nitro smiles.. ]]-
[ Mark Henry ] Shawn Michaels.. Can't beat me wit' speed.. He can't beat me.. With strainff.. He just plain can't beat me!
-[[ Jarrett nods. ]]-
[ Jeff Jarrett ] Alright, fine.. Ya' got it.. Now, hit the bricks!
-[[ Nitro, Henry and Trinity leave as Jarrett goes back to watching the EMTs tend to Jillian. ]]-
-[[ Another interview.. ]]-
-[[ Matt Hardy is standing alone, his head bowed, his hands in front of him, pressed together as if he is praying.. Wearing his gear and a 'V1' t-shirt, he begins to speak without looking at the camera.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] I have come from nothing..
-[[ A pause. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] And I know.. From experience.. The only thing worse than having nothing..
-[[ He tilts his head back, opening his eyes, staring at the ceiling. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] Is having everything.. And then losing it all..
-[[ He slowly turns his head toward the camera, lowering his hands, but keeping them together. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] That's what you did to me, Raven..
-[[ A pause.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] You took everything I had.. Away from me..
-[[ He takes a step toward the camera.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] And I don't care if you don't like it..
-[[ He breathes heavily.. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] And I DAMN SURE don't care.. If Rob Conway likes it..
-[[ He smiles an evil smile. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] Because.. At WrestleBrawl....
-[[ He extends both hands out to his side in the cross pose.. Version One hand signs on each side. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] I'm taking it.. All back.
-[[ He tilts his head down, keeping his eyes turned up at you.. That smile becoming more sinister. ]]-
[ Matt Hardy ] And myself.. And all of the fans.. Will celebrate.. And live.. In perfect.. Mattitude.

[ Lance Storm ] Edge.. I told you that tonight.. I was going to get a piece of you inside this ring..
-[[ The fans begin buzzing in anticipation.. ]]-
[ Lance Storm ] That's right, Edge.. Mister Undefeated.. I'm calling you out.. Right here.. Right now!
-[[ Storm lowers the microphone.. He waits.. No answer. ]]-
[ Lance Storm ] Come on, Edge.. Surely, the..
-[[ Quotation fingers. ]]-
[ Lance Storm ] Damn champion.... Isn't afraid!
-[[ Still no answer.. ]]-
[ Lance Storm ] Well, Edge.... In eight days.. I hope you show more guts--
-[[ "Metalingus" hits.. The fans erupt in boos.. Lance Storm discards the SGW World Championship and waits on Edge to make his entrance.. The smoke billows out of the entrance way.. And.. WHAM!! Edge nails Lance Storm from behind!! Edge entered through the crowd!! The coward, the damn coward!! Storm goes sprawling face first and Edge stays on him, punching away at him.. Edge stands up and Storm sits up.. And Edge kicks him right in the head!! Storm tries to get up on all fours.. And Edge hits the ropes.. And stomps Storm right in the side of the head!! The fans are booing loudly now.. Edge runs his hand through his hair and takes his place in the corner, motioning for Storm to get up.. He's going to give him another spear.. The THIRD spear he'll have given Storm!! Lance Storm slowly stands up, looking noticeably out of it from the kicks to the head... Storm turns around and Edge goes for it!! SPEAR!! SPEAR!! SPEAR- NO!! LANCE STORM TRIPS EDGE AND ROLLS THROUGH..... STRAIGHT SHOOTER!!! STRAIGHT SHOOTER!!! STRAIGHT SHOOTER!!! Lance Storm begins ripping back on the hold and Edge screams in pain.. AND BEGINS TAPPING OUT!! EDGE IS TAPPING OUT!! LANCE STORM HAS FORCED THE UNDEFEATED, UNPINNED EDGE TO TAP OUT!! THE FANS ARE GOING NUTS!! Lance Storm quickly releases the hold, grabs the SGW World Championship and rolls out of the ring, celebrating up the ramp, showing an awkward display of charisma not usually shown by "The Canadian Superstar".. Edge lays in the middle of the ring, staring down the ramp with a snarl on his face as Storm stands on the stage, raising the SGW championship over his head as the fans chant his name..... ]]-
