WWE open, ECW open.  Matt Striker and Josh Matthews hype the Championship Scramble Match at the Bash.  Tonight, in a preview match, Tommy Dreamer & Christian take on Mark Henry & Jack Swagger!

Evan Bourne vs. Tyson Kidd (w/ David Hart Smith and Natalya).  This will rule.  Bourne still has his ribs tapped from his recent beatings at the hands of Mark Henry.  They’re awesome for a minute, then Smith tries to interfere.  The rest of the Hart Dynasty gets ejected, then Bourne and Kidd are awesome some more.  “ECW” chants after Bourne hits a dive to the outside.  Kidd works Bourne’s injured ribs.  Bourne turns a move attempt in a cover for 2.  Kidd attacks the ribs again.  Bourne takes the chest first bump into the turnbuckle made famous by Bret Hart.  Bourne hits a sort of frog splash to Kidd’s back and hurts his ribs again.  Bourne gets a sweet modified cradle for 2.  Striker plugs WWE Classics.  Bourne hits a sweet rana and another move and gets 2.  Kidd lands a spin kick to the ribs.  Bourne catches Kidd with a knee to the face, then goes up top and lands the Shooting Star press for the pin at 5:25.  Awesome little match.

Replay of last Finlay’s attacks on everybody last week.  Finlay is headed our way!  Commercials!

Finlay comes out.  He’s pissed because Christian and Dreamer texted instead of calling him after they hurt his eye.  Zack Ryder comes out and talks shit.  His music is fucking gay.  Finlay vs. Ryder is NEXT!  Which means it will be half over after the commercials.

Finlay vs. Zack Ryder. JIP, of course.  Ryder is wearing half trunks/half pants.  WTF?  Finlay kicks his ass, and rightfully so.  They end up conking heads, which apparently hurts Finlay’s bad eye.  This allows Ryder to get some heat on him.  Ryder targets the injured facial area.  Finlay makes a comeback.  Finlay Roll gets 2.  Finlay hurts the eye again.  Ryder uncovers a turnbuckle while the referee checks on him.  Finlay gets a quick flash pinfall at around the 10 minute mark.  Match was ok.  Commercials!

Raw Rebound.  Striker and Matthews hype the Bash card, then Striker explains the rules of a Championship Scramble Match with the aid of his chalk board in the ring.

Gregory Helms tries to interview Mark Henry.  Something heavy falls on one of the backstage guys.  Helms disappears, then The Hurricane helps the other backstage guys left the heavy thing.  He disappears, then Helms reappears with Henry and Atlas.  Yeah…  Commercials!

Mark Henry (w/ Tony Atlas) & Jack Swagger vs. ECW Champion Tommy Dreamer & Christian.  Christian and Swagger lock up.  Swagger does his amateur stuff.  Dreamer tags in.  He and Christian don’t seem to be at each other’s throats this week.  Henry tags in.  Dreamer manages to drop him.  Dreamer and Christian hit dives on Henry and Swagger, respectively.  Commercials!  Back!  Christian fights off Swagger and nails a European uppercut, then tags in Dreamer.  Dreamer cleans house.  Swagger gets some heat on him.  Tags on both sides.  Christian tries to knock down Henry, and finally does after 2 missile dropkicks.  Cover gets 2.  Swagger runs in and gets taken out by Christian.  Christian avoids the World’s Strongest Slam and goes for a sunset flip.  Swagger tags in.  Christian avoids Henry’s butt drop.  Christian counters the Doctor Bomb with a reverse cradle for 2.  Killswitch on Swagger.  Atlas pulls Swagger’s foot under the ropes and points it out to the ref.  Dreamer disposes of Atlas.  Henry slams Christian into the post.  Swagger hits the Doctor Bomb for the pin at 13:03.  Alright match.  Henry drops Dreamer, then hits the World’s Strongest Slam on Swagger for good measure.  Henry looks strong heading into the Championship Scramble Match!

Fin.  Alright show.

WWE open, ECW open, then Matt Striker and Todd Grisham welcome us to Roanoke, Virginia!  Tonight, Tommy Dreamer faces Jack Swagger in a non-title match!

The Hart Dynasty heads to the ring as they show replays of last week’s match against Christian and Swagger.

David Hart Smith (w/ Tyson Kidd & Natalya) vs. Christian.  Lock up.  Smith overpowers Christian to start.  They trade hammerlocks.  Christian grabs a headlock, then comes off the ropes and gets dropped with a shoulder block.  Christian slaps Smith, schoolboys him for a quick 2, then slaps him again.  Smith slams Christian twice and gets 2.  Match goes on.  Smith tries to suplex Christian out of the ring, but Christian slips out and trips him, causing Smith to hit the apron face first.  Christian does a baseball slide or something.  I’m h having trouble keeping up.  Smith drops Christian painfully on the apron with a uranage.  Smith works over Christian in the ring.  Christian fights back and hits a big dive to the outside.  Commercial!  We come back to, shock shock, Smith holding Christian in a rear chin lock.  Smith hits some nasty backbreakers and covers for 2.  Christian fights Smith off and hits a missile dropkick for 2 and mounts his comeback, hitting a nice European uppercut off the turnbuckle.  Christian chases Tyson Kidd halfway around the ring for no reason, then runs back into the ring and into a lariat from Smith for a near fall.  Smith avoids the Killswitch and the tornado DDT, then Christian gets him with a springboard sunset flip for 2.  Smith counters another Killswitch attempt and hits his father’s trademark running powerslam for 2.  Christian goes up top.  Natalya distracts the referee, allowing Kidd to push Christian off the top rope.  Smith hits a backdrop suplex to win at 14:58.  That’s… slightly uncomfortable given recent events.  The Hart Dynasty prepares to beat down Christian, but Finlay runs down and runs them off.  Finlay then, for whatever reason, whacks Christian with the shillelagh.  Match was pretty decent.

Last week: Evan Bourne beat Tony Atlas, then got beat down by Mark Henry.  Henry vs. Bourne is NEXT!

Gregory Helms interviews Finlay.  I missed most of it.  Something about “an eye for an eye.”

Mark Henry (w/ Tony Atlas) vs. Evan Bourne.  Henry charges straight ahead, but Bourne side steps him and throws some punches.  This incites Henry to kick his ass.  Bourne avoids a butt drop and tries to mount an offensive, but Henry blasts him with a lariat.  Bourne manages to dropkick Henry down and covers for 2.  Bourne ducks a lariat and tries a crucifix hold, but Henry turns it into the World’s Strongest Slam and squashes him for the victory at 3:39.  Henry delivers another WSM for good measure.  Fair match for what it was.  Henry’s gotten good at big guy selling.

Dreamer vs. Swagger is still to come!

Raw Rebound.

Gregory Helms introduces Jack Swagger, who wants his belt back.  Main event is NEXT!

Non-Title: ECW Champion Tommy Dreamer vs. Jack Swagger.  Dreamer is moving like a man possesed tonight.  Announcers put over that Dreamer has been training with Dean Malenko.  I wish Malenko would make a Finlay-esque comback.  Dreamer goes for his cannoball of the apron, but Swagger catches him with a powerslam.  Commercial!  Back from break, Swagger stretches Dreamer’s face in a sick way.  During the break, he hit the springboard Vader Bomb.  Dreamer tries to fight back, but Swagger locks him in an abdominal stretch.  Dreamer escapes and gets a sunset flip for a near fall.  Swagger hits a belly to belly for 2.  Swagger nails a lariat, I think.  I just halfway caught it out of the corner of my eye.  Swagger puts Dreamer in a waistlock, then takes a funny face bump into the turnbuckle.  Dreamer makes his comeback, then Swagger shuts him down again.  Swagger tries to set up a superplex but gets pushed away.  Swagger catches a diving Dreamer and goes for the Doctor Bomb, but Dreamer turns it into a cradle for 2.  Reverse DDT by Dreamer gets 2 as well.  Swagger avoids a frog splash and gets an Oklahome roll for the pin at 11:57.  Okay match I guess.  Finlay runs down and whacks Dreamer with the shillelagh.  Christian runs down and attacks Finlay.  Swagger attacks Christian and tosses him out, then Finlay whacks Swagger with the shillelagh.  I hope this means a return of the fighting Irish bastard Finlay.

Fin.

WWE open, then highlights of Tommy Dreamer winning the ECW Championship in a Triple Threat Match against Christian and Jack Swagger this past Sunday at Extreme Rules.  ECW open.

Pyro and ballyhoo, then Matt Striker and Josh Matthews welcome us to Biloxi, Mississippi.

Tony Chimel introduces the ECW GM, Tiffany, who in turn introduces the NEW ECW Champion, Tommy Dreamer, who, since he is the champion, gets a new contract.  He says a few kind words, then as he gets ready to sign on the dotted line, Christian comes down with a box of tissue.  Christian is angry that Swagger got pinned, costing Christian his title.  He says that he will regain the title when he gets his rematch, then shakes Dreamer’s hand.  Tommy again tries to put pen to paper, but Jack Swagger interrupts.  He wants Christian to go to the board of directors with him and have Dreamer stripped of the title because he things the one day extension on Dreamer’s contract wasn’t valid.  Christian teases agreeing, then he decks Swagger and he and Dreamer send him out of the ring.  Dreamer finally signs his contract, but as he celebrates, Christian powerbombs him through the table that was set up in the ring.  That was mean.

How will this SHOCKING turn of events affect our main event tonight, in which Dreamer & Christian are scheduled to take on the Hart Dynasty?  Commercials!

This Monday: The 3-For-All!

Tiffany is talking to some guys backstage who knocked some shit over.  Christian shows up and Tiffany tells him he took out Dreamer, so now he has to tag with Swagger.

Tony Atlas (w/ Mark Henry) vs. Evan Bourne.  Atlas is still jacked, but old and immobile.  Bourne bumps for him and practically wrestles himself.  Atlas decides to try a little bit and takes a bump or two.  Bourne wins with the Shooting Star press at 3:14.  Henry jumps Bourne and hits the World’s Strongest Slam after the match.

Striker and Matthews reaffirm that the main even tonight is now Christian & Swagger vs. The Hart Dynasty.  Commercials!, including an awesome Extreme Rules highlights video.

Handicap Match: Vladimir Kozlov vs. Luke Hawx & Chris Lewie.  Kozlov destroys the jobbers with extreme prejudice and pins Lewie at 1:33 with his move.

Christian and Swagger bicker in the locker room.  Commercials!

“Last night on Raw…” segment.  Striker and Matthews then announce that Monday night on Raw, there will be a four-way match between Randy Orton, John Cena, Triple H, and Big Show for the vacant WWE Championship.  Plus, Tommy Dreamer will defend the ECW Championship against Christian.

The Hart Founda…. er, Dynasty, comes out for the main event.  Natalya says her boys will beat the two former ECW Champions.  Commercials!

The Hart Dynasty (w/ Natalya) vs. Christian & Jack Swagger.  Harts take turns working over Christian to start.  Christian counters Kidd and tags in Swagger.  Swagger has a brief exchange with Kidd, then shoves Christian to tag him back in.  Christian hits a missile dropkick on Kidd, the Swagger shoves him in a shot from Kidd.  Harts start to work over Christian again as we take our final commercial break!  Back from break, Christian plays face in peril.  I guess he has to, since he’s the only face in the match.  Swagger calls for the tag, but fakes out.  Christian slaps him.  Shouldn’t that count as a tag?  Awesome sequence between Christian and Smith.  Kidd tags in and almost takes the Killswitch, but counters it.  Another great sequence between Christian and Kidd.  Christian gets a near fall with his reverse DDT. then Swagger double crosses him.  Shock shock.  Smith pins Christian after the Hart Attack at 11:26.  Really good match.  Swagger and the Hart Dynasty commence to beat down Christian, but Tommy Dreamer runs down with a Singapore can to make the save, even though Christian powerbombed him through a table earlier in the show.  Dreamer’s music plays, fade to black…

WWE open, then an awesome WrestleMania opening video where various wrestlers talk what they think is the greatest WrestleMania moment of all time, then comments on the big matches tonight.

Howard Finkel welcomes us to the *sigh* 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania.  I’m not even going to get into that today.  The Fink then introduces Nicole Somethingorother from the Pussycat Dolls, who sings a horrible rendition of “America The Beautiful.”

The Army National Guard presents WrestleMania!  “Shoot To Thrill” plays, fireworks, and Jim Ross welcomes us to WrestleMania.  Wow, I feel really welcome with all of these welcomes.  Justin Roberts introduces our first match, the Money In The Bank Lader Match!  Ross, Jerry Lawler, and Michael Cole are doing a three-man commentary team tonight.  Also, we finally have the long awaited return of the Spanish announce table!  Carlos and Hugo are back, baby!

Money In The Bank Ladder Match: CM Punk vs. Mark Henry (w/ Tony Atlas) vs. WWE United States Champion Montel Vontavious Porter vs. Finlay (w/ Hornswoggle and rocking the old school Belfast Bruiser vest thingy) vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Christian vs. Kane.  Christian’s entrance is the only one to get an audible pop from the huge crowd.  On TV, anyway.  According to people who were there, the crowd was way hotter live than it appeared on TV, so maybe there was some audio trouble or something.  Enough of that, on to the match!  Bell rings, everybody pairs off and brawls.  Kane and Henry go at it.  Maybe they’ll take each other to prevent them from dragging the match down.  Christian and Benjamin take them down with a ladder, then try to take out Kofi.  Kofi leapfrogs the ladder, then dropkicks it and legdrops the ladder with both the guys under it.  “Controlled frenzy” line from Cole.  The ladder gets set up and Kane and Henry climb it.  Other guys come in and take the big dudes out, then they all climb a couple of ladders.  Kane and Henry come back in and push the two ladders over, then fight each other again.  Kane knocks Henry down and throws one of the ladders out of the ring, then climbs the other.  Henry comes in and tips the ladder over to send Kane crashing.  Finlay comes in and takes out Henry, who throws the ladder out.  Finlay lands a tope suicida on Kane and Benjamin.  Christian follows with his own dive, followed by MVP, then stereo dives from Punk and Kofi.  Benjamin hits a fucking insane dive off of a tall ladder in the aisle onto the pile of guys.  “HOLY SHIT” chant.  Henry teases diving, but Henry whacks him with the stick.  Hornswoggle sets up a step ladder and Finlay helps him climb onto Henry, then dive onto the pile.  The video was skipping, so I think my DVD may have not burned properly.  Kofi does an awesome spot where he dropkicks Finlay through an open ladder.  Finlay nails him with the step ladder, then uses it to nail the other guys coming back in.  Finlay goes to make the climb, but Kofi kicks him off and climbs himself.  Henry comes in and pushes the ladder over.  The next awesome Kofi spot happens, where Henry is holding an unopened ladder vertically.  Kofi climbs it and gets caught by Henry, who transitions it into the World’s Strongest Slam on the ladder.  Henry climbs, but MVP comes and takes him down, then sets up another ladder between the set up ladder and the top rope.  Benjamin comes in and he and MVP do some crazy shit that ends with Shelton taking a powerbomb.  MVP climbs, Punk stops him.  Christian tries to stop him but gets knocked down, then gets back up on the horizontal ladder behind Punk.  They fight, then Christian hits a botched but cool Unprettier off the ladder.  MVP climbs up, but Benjamin sets up the crazy thing and runs up, then botches a sunset flip off the ladder and gets a “YOU FUCKED UP” chant.  Benjamin powerbombs MVP out of the ring onto Henry and Atlas.  Finlay and Benjamin both climb.  Shelton nails Finlay, who takes a bump on the horizontal ladder.  Christian comes in and fights with Benjamin.  Benjamin sets up the ladder that has been horizontal, so we now have two vertical ladders.  They climb, but the ladder falls over.  Benjamin spills out of the ring, but Christian catches the top rope with his foot in a cool Captain Morgan post and gets it straight again.  Punk tries to stop Christian, but gets his leg caught in the ladders.  Kane comes up and chokeslams Christian off the ladder (not as cool as it sounds).  Punk goes for the prize, but Kane goozles him.  Punk kicks Kane in the head to knock him down, then takes the briefcase of the win at 14:29.  That’s where I timed it, but my DVD did skip a bit so it probably is the 14:24 other reports have it as.  Fucking awesome match.  Kofi really shined here, but everyone had their moments.

Axxess highlights.

Kid Rock mini-concert.  He performs a medley of his songs consisting Bawitaba, some song I don’t know, Cowboy, All Summer Long, and So Hott.  During the last one, the 25 divas in the Battle Royal make their way to the ring.  The whole thing goes about 10 minutes.

Now I actually put some work into working out this clusterfuck of a match, so bear with me.

Divas Battle Royal featuring Kelly Kelly, WWE Women’s Champion Melina, Beth Phoenix, Mickie James, Layla, Jillian Hall, Rosa Mendez, Maria, Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Eve Torres, WWE Divas Champion Maryse, Gail Kim, Michelle McCool, Natalya, Katie Lea, Sunny, Molly Holly, Jackie Gayda, Joy Giovanni, Torrie Wilson, Alicia Fox, Tiffany Terrell, Victoria, and Santino Marella (in drag).  The bell rings and they start fighting while Roberts introduces the match.  Mae Young is at ringside with Candice Michelle as the guest timekeeper.  Now this clusterfuck is impossible to call live, but from my earlier research, the order of elimination is Layla, Joy, Rosa, Alicia, Sunny, Torrie, Jackie, Maria, Gail, Jillian, Eve, Tiffany, Kelly, Molly, Maryse, Katie Lea, Natalya, Victoria, Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, Mickie James, Michelle McCool… then the finish is Beth going for the Glam Slam on Melina, but Santino bundles them both out to win the match at 6:10.  Pointless, but at least we got to look at a bunch of hot chicks for a few minutes.  I can say that my ridiculously jealous wife is gone.  Candice comes in the ring to present the Miss WrestleMania crown and sash to the winner.  He introduces himself as “Santina, Santino’s twin sister from Italy.”  The announcers don’t even actually acknowledge that it’s Santino.  Beth looks on, pissed.

Jericho vs. Legends hype video, a lot of which is about Mickey Rourke.  They show Rourke taking his seat in the audience.

Handicap Elimination Match: Chris Jericho vs. Ricky Steaboat, Roddy Piper, & Jimmy Snuka (w/ Ric Flair).  Piper, who looks incredibly old, insists on starting.  He spits his gum at Jericho, then proceeds to kick his ass for the first few minutes, other than an embarrasing spot early on when Piper gets his arm stuck in the ropes.  Piper throws a half assed dropkick that only connects with one leg.  Snuka tags in and looks fucking terrible.  Steamboat tags in to a big pop and looks FUCKING AWESOME.  Steamboat nails a couple of GORGEOUS arm drags, causing me to mark out for an arm drag for the first time in my life.  Steamboat works the arm a bit, then tags Snuka back in.  They do a double chop and Snuka’s doesn’t even connect.  Jericho locks Snuka in the Walls of Jericho for the submission at 3:45.  Thank God.  He refuses to break the hold until Piper and Steamboat come in and force him.  There are some incidents of the audio going out for a second.  Piper goes after Jericho again, poking him in the eyes and locking in the sleeper hold.  Jericho escapes and hits an enzuigiri for the pin at 4:45.  Steamboat hits a sweet diving crossbody for a near fall.  Steamboat and Jericho go at it, and it’s awesome.  Jericho tosses Steamboat out and decks Flair as Steamboat skins the cat back in.  Steamboat sends Jericho out of the ring and dives onto him, then sends him back in and hits the diving karate chop.  More chops, then Steamboat gets a near fall with a reverse cradle.  Jericho hits the bulldog and goes for the Lionsault, but Steamboat avoids it.  Steamboat catches Jericho with a powerslam for a near fall.  Jericho locks in the Walls, but Steamboat manages to counter out with an inside cradle for another near fall.  Jericho goes for a backdrop suplex, but Steamboat lands on his feet.  Jericho catches the Codebreaker out of nowhere for the win at 8:57.  Snuka was awful.  Piper tried, but wasn’t good.  Steamboat was the fucking man and made the match.  Flair attacks Jericho after the match, but ends up taking a backdrop and eating the Codebreaker.  Jericho challenges Rourke.  Rourke stalls forever before finally getting in the ring.  They have an impromptu amateur boxing match which ends with Rourke catching Jericho with a left hand and knocking him down.  Flair comes in and celebrates with Rourke.  Another pointless waste of time.  The post-match stuff, not the match, though the match would have been MUCH better if it was just a Jericho/Steamboat singles match.

Army National Guard commercial.

The announcers chat a bit to introduce the Hardys video package.

Extreme Rules Match: Matt Hardy vs. Jeff Hardy.  Matt talks trash, then Jeff jumps on him and kicks his ass.  Jeff pulls a WrestleMania poster from under the ring and breaks it over Matt’s head, prompting a great line from Lawler: “Well, at least Matt finally got his face on the WrestleMania poster.”  Matt catches Jeff with a chair to the legs while Jeff was attempting the Whisper in the Wind, then moments later nailed him with a shop vac.  I was amused.  Matt hits the Side Effect on the chair for a near fall.  Ouch.  Matt sets up a table on the outside.  Logic says Matt will be the one to go through that table later on.  Matt takes a bump in the steps and the ref and trainer check on him.  Matt hits him with a Singapore cane, then puts a trash can over his head and hits him with a crutch.  Jeff hits a front suplex and goes up top, but Matt avoids the Swanton bomb.  Matt hits the Twist of Fate, but Jeff kicks out at two.  Jeff hits Matt with a chair, then sets him up on that table from earlier.  Jeff sets a chair on top of Matt, then sets another table on top of the table on which Matt is laying.  Jeff goes to the top rope and dives through the table.  Told ya so.  “HOLY SHIT” chant, but I’m pretty sure the top table actually made the spot safer.  Jeff puts Matt in the ring and covers, but Matt puts his foot on the bottom rope.  Jeff brings in a ladder, then sets up a chair and hits a leg drop off of it.  He sets up two ladders and does that “jump from the shorter ladder over the taller ladder and do a leg drop” spot, but Matt moves and Jeff dies.  Matt his a Twist of Fate using an open chair, which looks SICK, for the win at 13:15.  Good plunder match, and no doubt the best match they’ve ever had against each other.

Legends of WrestleMania video game commercial.

Randy Orton is shown in his locker room with Legacy, getting ready.  At least Dibiase and Rhodes got a second of screen time.

Lillian Garcia introduces the first Intercontinental Title match at WrestleMania in 7 years.  JBL comes down, cutting a promo about how he is returning to Texas as a champion and being the only hero Texas has, or something to that effect.  Mysterio makes his entrance with an awesome Heath Ledger Joker mask and outfit.  Lillian does the introductions in-ring, then JBL nails Mysterio with a big boot, then nails him with some punches.  The referee asks Mysterio if he still wants to wrestle.  He says he does, so we have…

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match: John Bradshaw Layfield (c) vs. Rey Mysterio Jr.  Mysterio ducks a kick and hits an enzuigiri, a dropkick, the 619, and the diving splash for the win in 21 seconds.  Mysterio celebrates and leaves with the gold.  JBL takes the microphone and quits, which makes the crowd pop big.  He leaves, yelling at the crowd that they’ll regret him leaving.

A nice shot of the Houston skyline.  A NASCAR driver is in the crowd.

Shawn/Taker video package.

Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker.  Here we go.  Awesome entrances, as Michaels descends from above, then Taker rises from the stage.  Bell rings.  Taker looks to throw punches, but Michaels ducks and lands his own blows.  Taker gets hold of Michaels and tosses him into the turnbuckle.  Michaels responds with a defiant crotch chop.  Michaels leap frogs Taker and pounces on him.  Taker finally manages to land some punches and hammers Michaels down.  Michaels answers with chops, but Taker throws him into the corner, then back body drops him.  Taker press slams Shawn and drops an elbow.  First cover of the match gets a one count.  Taker hits Old School.  Shawn chop blocks Taker to weaken his leg, then locks in the figure-four.  Taker throws some punches and manages to escape.  Taker kicks Shawn’s ass for a minute until Michaels counters a chokeslam attempt into a crossface.  Taker finally manages to get up and drop Michaels with a side slam to escape it.  They trade blows.  Michaels hits the forearm and nips up.  Michaels knocks Taker down and goes to the top for the big elbow, but Taker gets up and catches him with the goozle.  Michaels counters the chokeslam attempt and feigns a superkick.  He goes for the figure-four again, but Taker locks in the Gogoplata.  Michaels scampers around and manages to get a rope break.  Michaels avoids the apron leg drop, causing Taker to hurt his leg again.  Michaels hits a baseball slide kick, then goes for a moonsault to the outside, but Taker avoids it.  Taker gets back in the ring and goes for a suicide dive.  Michaels pulls a camera man (played by Sim Snuka) in the way and Taker ALMOST KILLS HIMSELF.  I don’t know how he managed to not break his neck.  It was a tope suicida that almost turned into a Space Flying Tiger Drop.  Taker BARELY beats the count back in the ring.  Michaels tunes up the band and goes for the superkick, but Taker catches him with a huge chokeslam for a VERY close two count.  They counter each other’s finishes until Michaels lands the superkick for the one, two… TAKER KICKS OUT!  They rest for a moment, then Michaels nips up and stands over the dead Taker.  Taker comes back to life and goozles him, then gets up and goes for the Last Ride.  Michaels counters.  Taker goes for it again and hits it big time for the one, two, hegothimnohedidn’tcomeonref!  Taker, for some reason, goes for the diving elbow drop, but crashes and burns when Michaels moves.  When everybody gets up, Taker throws Michaels over the top rope.  Michaels skins the cat… right into the Tombstone!  Taker covers for the one, two, and MICHAELS KICKS OUT!  Taker lowers the straps to reveal his chest, which has been beaten blood red.  He goes for another Tombstone, but Michaels counters with somewhat of a DDT.  Michaels hits the diving elbow drop, then NAILS the superkick for a very believable near fall.  Taker’s not done yet, though.  They make it to their feet and trade blows until Taker knocks Shawn down.  Taker goes for the Tombstone again, but Michaels counters.  Taker runs into Michaels’ boot in the corner.  Michaels goes for another moonsault, but Taker catches him and drops him with a second Tombstone and gets the pin at 30:43.  Fucking amazing epic match here, one of the best matches in WrestleMania history.

Raw Draft special commercial.

Evander Holyfield is in the crowd.  The announcers reflect on the epic match we just saw, but still have to feign interest in the matches still to come.

Edge/Cena/Show video package.

Lillian introduces Vickie Guerrero, who is wheeled down by Chavo.  At least Chavo gets a WrestleMania payday.  Edge makes his way out, then Show.  Cena’s old music hits and a bunch of Cena look-alikes come out and line the entry way.  Then the real Cena comes out.  I guess it’s the real Cena anyway.  In-ring intros, then we have…

World Heavyweight Championship Match: Edge (c) vs. The Big Show vs. John Cena.  Cena tries to out-quick the other guys, but gets knocked down.  Edge tries to form an alliance with Show, but Show quickly betrays him.  Edge is disposed of, then Show beats down Cena.  Show ends up outside the ring and Cena hits his diving Fameasser to the oustide on Show.  Edge and Cena end up in the ring.  Edge hits his DDT and gets a near fall.  Show makes it back in.  Chavo pulls Cena out of the ring and gets F-U… er, has his Attitude Adjusted for his troubles.  Show does the Andre “tied up in the ropes” spot and watches Cena beat up Edge.  Vickie gets out of her wheelchair and gets on the apron.  Edge accidentally spears her for the 374th time.  Show finally gets out and beats up everyone.  Show goes for a double chokeslam, but Cena gets away, so Edge is the only one to take it.  Cena goes for the Attitude Adjuster, but Show counters and nails his KO punch.  Show and Edge fight outside.  Edge spears Show through the guardrail.  Edge covers Cena for a two count back in the ring.  Edge goes for the spear, but Cena counters and locks in the STF.  Show makes it back up and pulls Cena out of the ring, then headbutts him.  Show goes for a Vader bomb on Edge, but Edge avoids it.  Edge and Cena unite to suplex Show, then they clothesline him out of the ring.  Edge takes a cheap shot and gets a near fall on Cena.  Cena hits the Throwback and goes up top.  Show pushes him off right into a spear from Edge in a cool spot.  Edge hops on Show’s back and tries to put him down with a sleeper.  Cena shows his retard strength and lifts both of them for the Attitude Adjuster.  Edge falls of and Show takes the move.  Cena hits it on Edge, dropping him on top of Show, then covers Show for the win at 14:43.  Not a bad match, but nothing was going to follow Shawn vs. Taker.

WrestleMania XXVI is coming to Arizona!

Justin Roberts introduces the Hall of Fame Class of 2009: The Funks (Terry & Dory Jr.), Bill Watts, Howard Finkel, Koko B. Ware, The Von Erichs (represented by Kevin Von Erich), Ricky Steamboat, and Stone Cold Steve Austin.  Austin appears on the stage in his suit, then leaves.  He comes back out on his four wheeler in an Austin 3:16 shirt.  He drives down to the ring and drinks some beer, even sharing one with good ol’ J.R.  Ross puts this over as the end of the Austin era.

Backlash!  Backlash!  BACKLASH!

Lillian announces the attendance as 72,744.

Triple H/Orton history package.

Triple H is shown walking backstage.  He runs into Vince and Shane McMahon.  They exchange nods of the head.  Main event time!

WWE Championship Match: Triple H (c) vs. Randy Orton.  Triple H can lose the title by DQ or count-out.  Entrances and in-ring introductions here too.  Triple H kicks Orton’s ass to start and gets told off by the referee.  Orton hits the RKO out of nowhere, but is an idiot, so doesn’t cover.  Orton goes for the punt of death, but Triple H avoids it and hits the Pedigree.  He is also an idiot and doesn’t cover.  They fight outside for a moment, then back in, then back out, then back in.  Orton begs off, but Triple H hammers him anyway.  They end up outside again.  Orton reverses Triple H and whips him into the steps, then into the time keeper’s area.  Triple H makes it back in the ring to avoid being counted out, but Orton goes to work on him.  My DVD starts skipping again.  Must have been a bad burn.  It finally starts playing right again, but my timing is going to be completely screwed now.  Triple H goes for the Pedigree, but Orton counters with a quick jackknife hold for a near fall.  The match speeds up a bit now, with Triple H avoiding the RKO and getting a near fall with a quick schoolboy, then catching Orton with the big spinebuster.  Triple H goes for the Pedigree again, but Orton hits his 3.0 backbreaker for a near fall.  Orton catches Triple H coming off the turnbuckle with a sweet dropkick.  Triple H avoids the punt again and sends Orton outside.  Triple H teases hitting Orton with a monitor, but thinks better of it.  They tease a Pedigree through the announce table, but Orton backdrops Triple H to the other table, which doesn’t give.  Orton drops Triple H with his sick DDT off the table and they do the big count-out tease, but Triple H makes it back in.  Orton punishes him some more.  Ref bump.  Orton hits the RKO and retrieves the sledgehammer.  Triple H catches Orton coming back in and punts him.  Triple H hits Orton with the sledgehammer, hides it, and hammers Orton with punches.  The referee wakes up and makes Triple H stop throwing punches.  Triple H hits the Pedigree for the pin at 23:34 (according to Wikipedia since my timing got fucked up).  Flattest Mania finish ever, and Orton totally got jobbed.

WrestleMania highlight video.  Fin.

Here we are with the go home Raw for WrestleMania 25!

WWE open, then a hearse backs into the arena.  Raw open, then Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler welcome us to the show.  Tonight, something with Undertaker, I wasn’t paying attention, and John Cena vs. The Big Show.

WWE Women’s Champion Melina, Mickie James, Gail Kim, Maria, Kelly Kelly, Brie Bella, Alicia Fox, Eve Torres, & Tiffany Terrell vs. WWE Divas Champion Maryse, Beth Phoenix, Michelle McCool, Natalya, Jillian Hall, Katie Lea, Nikki Bella, Layla, & Rosa Mendez.  18 woman clusterfuck.  Tiffany pinned Katie Lea with an inside cradle for the win in a couple of minutes.  Santino Marella comes down in a robe.  Santino said he went to WWE President Jack Tunney and found out he was dead.  He still wants to be in the Women’s battle royal at WrestleMania.  He disrobes to reveal some kind of gay outfit and does a gay dance around the ring.  He gets kicked out of the ring and Beth and Rosa pull him away.

Orton/Triple H replay #72,000,000,001.  Tonight: Orton’s address!  Haven’t we already been to his house?  Lawler takes on Chris Jericho NEXT!

Last week: Jericho killed Ric Flair and broke his watch.

Chris Jericho vs. Jerry “The King” Lawler.  Apparently the Jericho vs. old guys WrestleMania match is elimination or gauntlet.  Jericho has to beat all of them, but only one of them has to beat Jericho.  Jericho and Lawler lock up, then shove each other.  King hammers Jericho with punches.  Jericho gets in a cheap shot to get the advantage.  Jericho beats on King for a while.  King makes his comeback and lowers the strap so his man tits can flap freely.  Lawler blisters Jericho with punches.  Jericho locks in the Walls of Jericho for the win at 3:25.  Jericho prepares to beat down Lawler some more, but Lawler lands a punch and Jericho bails.  Jericho takes the microphone and says he beat Lawler so he’s not getting back in the ring.  He says he’ll beat the old guys at WrestleMania, it’s just a matter of how.

12 Rounds hype.  I don’t care, nor will I ever.  Cena takes on Big Show TONIGHT!

Hall of Fame hype.  Commercials!

Toasty Torpedo Takedown… huh?  Cena wrestled Edge a few weeks ago and Big Show interfered.

Todd Grisham interviews John Cena.  Or tries to.  Edge steps in and recommends that he and Cena unite to take out Big Show.  Cena declines.

Cody Rhodes and Ted Dibiase Jr. talk to Cole about Randy Orton.  Rhodes has on a new Legacy t-shirt.  Orton’s WrestleMania Address tonight will CHANGE WWE FOREVER!

Some people pull a casket out of the hearse.  Shawn Michaels pops out and mouths something.  Commercial.

Non-Title: Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. WWE Intercontinental Champion John Bradshaw Layfield.  Yeah, lots of people are going to buy WrestleMania to see the exact match they just saw on TV.  JBL cuts a promo saying he wants this match for some kind of psychological advantage or something.  Rey tries to use his speed, but JBL overwhelms him with his size.  Commercial!  Back from break, JBL continues to overwhelm Mysterio.  Mysterio takes a fall away slam and roles out of the ring.  JBL goes out and puts the boots to him.  JBL brings him back in the ring and Mysterio makes a comeback.  Bombs Away and an enzuigiri from Mysterio.  JBL avoids a 619 attempt, but Mysterio hits it on the second try and follows with the frog splash for the win at 6:45.  That means JBL is winning at WrestleMania.

Replay of the Cena’s promo from Smackdown.  He’ll face Big Show NEXT!

WrestleMania XI video.

John Cena vs. The Big Show.  I’m not paying much attention, but Show has the advantage in the early minutes.  Big Show does a baseball slide dropkick of all things as we go to commercial.  Back from break, Show has Cena in a Camel Clutch like move.  Cena counters a chokeslam and hits that weird DDT/suplex Show always takes.  Cena goes for the STF, but Show blasts him with an elbow.  Cena goes for the F-U, but his back is hurt.  Show hits the chokeslam for the clean win at 10:37.  Edge shows up and pounds on Cena.

Orton’s WrestleMania address TONIGHT!

Replay of the Undertaker/Michaels stuff from Smackdown.  Michaels leads the pall bearers our way.  Commercial.

WrestleMania Axxess video.  Looks like lots of awesome stuff to do.

Moments ago: Cena/Show.

Shawn Michaels cuts his usual promo on Undertaker in the ring.  The ring is set up to look like a funeral or something.  The lights go out and Taker appears in the ring.  Michaels has disappeared.  Taker throws all the shit in the ring around.  Michaels appears from under the casket and lands the Sweet Chin Music.  Michaels runs away, Taker is mad, same old shit.

12 Rounds hype again.

Moments ago: Michaels/Undertaker stuff.

Hall of Fame hype: The awesome Steve Austin video plays.

WrestleMania hype I think.  I wasn’t paying attention.

Dibiase and Rhodes are with security guards.

Time for another Money In The Bank preview match!  CM Punk and Kane come out.  Commercial break, then Hardy vs. Hardy hype video.  That’s stupid.  Can’t it wait until after the match?

Battle Royal: CM Punk vs. Kane vs. WWE United States Champion Montel Vontavious Porter vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Christian vs. Shelton Benjamin vs. Mark Henry (w/ Tony Atlas) vs. Finlay (w/ Hornswoggle).  Everybody fights.  Henry eliminates Finlay.  Hornswoggle distracts Henry and everyone dumps Henry out.  MVP and Benjamin fight on the apron.  Kane knocks them both to the floor to eliminate them.  Punk (I think) eliminates his former tag team parter Kofi Kingston.  Christian tries to eliminate Punk, but Punk fights back and hits his running knee in the corner.  Christian counters the bulldog and throws Punk out, but Punk holds on.  Kane throws Christian into Punk and they both go to the floor to give Kane the win at 3:38.  I think Punk hit first, if it matters.  Kane climbs the ladder and takes down the briefcase.  The build to this match has been retarded and repetitive.

Dibiase and Rhodes come with security to escort Orton to the ring.  Orton’s WrestleMania address is NEXT!

Randy Orton comes out and talks for a while.  They show Triple H turning on Orton back in 2004, Orton eliminating Triple H to win the Royal Rumble this year, and Orton’s various attacks on the McMahon family.  Orton says the IED was bullshit, which everyone knew.  He threatens the fans to shut up and listen to him talk or else.  They show the beatdown from last week.  He says he talked to Vickie Guerrero and she decreed that Triple H can lose the title by DQ or count-out and if Triple H brings a sledgehammer to the ring it’s an automatic DQ.  Orton calls for Dibiase and Rhodes to bring the security out.  He calls out Triple H because there’s an empty limo in the parking lot.  Mr. McMahon comes out instead!  Orton looks shocked.  Vince gets ready to fight.  Shane comes out next, followed by Triple H.  The McMahon men kick the shit out of Orton’s security detail, then brawl with Legacy.  Orton and Triple H end up brawling in the ring as the show fades to black.

WrestleMania 25 this Sunday on PPV!

I apologize for this review being so shitty.

Cool Smackdown open, then the show opens with CM PUNK!  Jim Ross and Tazz welcome us to Smackdown.  All of the other MITB participants are in the ring.  How many freakin’ preview matches are they going to do?

CM Punk, WWE United States Champion Montel Vontavious Porter, Mark Henry (w/ Tony Atlas), & Kofi Kingston vs. Kane, Christian, Shelton Benjamin, & Finlay (w/ Hornswoggle).  So it’s a Parajes Incredibles match… except it’s quartets instead of pairs.  Kingston and Christian start.  Christian has really been working his ass off since returning.  Christian hits his reverse DDT for a near fall.  Kingston fights back and tags out to Punk, he hilos in onto Christian.  Christian ducks one of Punk’s strikes.  Punk ends up tying up Christian in an Anaconda Vice on the ropes, then hits a diving crossbody for a near fall.  Finlay comes in and goes at it with Punk.  I want a singles match between those two.  Punk goes for the Go 2 Sleep, but Kane big boots Punk.  Kane goozles Finlay for no apparent reason.  Insta-commercial.  Punk reaches for the tag, but is held back by Benjamin.  He manages to tag Henry.  Benjamin steps out and lets Kane take over, so we have a battle of the two least talented guys in the match.  That doesn’t last long, as MVP comes in.  He gets the better of Kane, but then gets punched in the face.  Benjamin comes in and attacks MVP.  They announce that Benjamin will get a rematch for the title next week.  Benjamin works over MVP.  Kane tags in and beats on MVP.  Lukewarm tag to Punk, who attacks Kane with his various kicks.  Kane counters the corner bulldog attempt but gets kicked in the face.  Punk springboards off the ropes but gets caught and chokeslammed by Kane, who gets the pin for his team at 7:26 shown.  Clusterfuck brawl after the match.  Christian brings in a ladder and climbs for the briefcase, but Hornswoggle goes after him.  Finlay and Hornswoggle push the ladder over and send Christian crashing into the pile of guys at ringside.  The match wasn’t very good, but sadly it was the best of these Money In The Bank preview matches I’ve seen.

Orton/Triple H replay #72 billion TONIGHT!

Handicap Match: Jesse & Festus vs. The Big Show.  They show Show’s KO punch to Edge from this past Raw.  The bell rings, Festus goes crazy, and Big Show destroys both of them.  Festus finally lands a bicycle kick to knock Show off his feet, which just pisses Show off.  KO punch to Festus and a chokeslam to Jesse.  Show KO punches Jesse for good measure and pins him at 2:26.  Remember when this act actually got pushed?  Festus is a great character.

12 Rounds hype.  Bleh.

Jeff Hardy interview TONIGHT!

Hardy vs. Hardy history video.

Matt Hardy is in the locker room with his dog.  He cuts his usual promo on Jeff.

Rey Mysterio Jr. vs. Chavo Guerrero Jr.  These two always have good matches.  It’s not often that Rey gets to work with a guy he can do his shit with, and it’s not often Chavo works with a guy who gives him anything.  Nice stuff to start, then Chavo takes a neat bump out of the ring and Mysterio follows him with a baseball slide into a headscissors.  Chavo hits an avalanche Frankensteiner for a near fall.  Chavo clamps in a rear chinlock, but Mysterio kicks him in the head to get out of it.  Mysterio kicks Chavo a bunch.  Chavo catches a springboarding Mysterio and ties him in the tree of woe.  Mysterio dodges a charge hits the Bombs Away and springboard crossbody for a near fall.  Rey rolls through a sunset flip attempt and kicks Chavo.  Chavo hits the Gory Bomb for a believable false finish.  Mysterio ranas Chavo into the 619 position.  Chavo somehow avoids it and goes for the Three Amigos.  He counters the third, but Chavo hits a backdrop suplex and goes for the frog splash.  Rey avoids it and hits a headscissors, then the 619 and his own frog splash for the win at 5:28.  JBL comes out of nowhere and blasts Mysterio with a big boot.  Really good little match.

For some reason, they feel the need to replay Cena’s reading of his get well card for Vickie.  Cena is headed to the ring!

Cena comes down to the ring and talks about WrestleMania.  Big Show comes out to talk about how much he loves Vickie Guerrero.  They agree to have a match on Raw I think.  Cena grabs Show’s leg as he leaves the ring and makes him tumble to the ground.

Hype for the Triple H/Orton hype.

R-Truth vs. Matt Hardy.  Matt shows lots of aggression and busts out some moves I don’t recall ever seeing him do.  Matt wins with the Twist of Fate at 3:07.

Replay of the Undertaker/Shawn Michaels segment from Raw.  Tonight: Shawn Michaels’ tribute to the Undertaker.

The Colons and their Bella come to the ring for their match.  Commercial!

2 weeks ago: the challenge for the double title at at WrestleMania and the breakup of the Bella Twins.

WWE Tag Team Champions Carlito & Primo Colon & Brie Bella vs. World Tag Team Champions John Morrison & The Miz & Nikki Bella.  Primo and Miz start.  Morrison gets a cheap shot in to let Miz get the advantage.  Morrison tags in and beats up Primo.  Hot tag to Carlito, he cleans Morrison’s clock.  Carlito hits a swinging neckbreaker and covers, but Miz saves.  Primo takes out Miz and the Bellas get into a cat fight.  Morrison gets a quick near fall with a schoolboy, then goes for a suplex.  Carlito counters in mid air with the Backstabber for the win at 2:26.

Hype for the Michaels/Undertaker and Triple H/Orton hype.

Jeff Hardy is in a dark room.  He cuts the usual promo on Matt.  They’ll go to war at WrestleMania!

Ross and Tazz run down the WrestleMania card.

They finally show the obligatory replay of the Legacy beatdown on Triple H and Orton’s DDT and kiss to Stephanie from Raw.

WWE Divas Championship Match: Maryse (c) vs. Michelle McCool.  Michelle finally gets her rematch for the title nobody cares about.  They lock up and roll out of the ring.  They break, crawl slowly back into the ring, and lock up again, then finally do some holds.  They fight outside the ring again, then come back in.  Maryse hits a lazy thrust kick for a near fall.  Michelle hits some kicks.  GAIL KIM appears and dropkicks Michelle to cause the DQ at 2:59.  She takes down Maryse too, then poses with the belt.

12 Rounds.  I don’t care.

Shawn Michaels’ tribute to the Undertaker is NEXT!

A bunch of druids dressed in white come out, then Shawn Michaels enters in an all-white version of Undertaker’s entrance attire.  He quotes some scripture and cuts a promo on Undertaker.  Then his music plays and he does a strip tease.  Undertaker pops out from under the ring and goes for the chokeslam, but Michaels escapes.  Michaels dances on the stage as Taker stands in the ring and looks angry.  Fade to black.

Okay show all in all.

Cold open this week.  Finlay and Hornswoggle arrive and meet Teddy Long, clad in St. Patrick’s day attire.  Hornswoggle disappears to cause mischief.  ECW open.

Todd Grisham and Matt Striker welcome us to wherever the hell we are.  They taped last night, so I guess it’s San Antonio.

Christian & MVP vs. WWE United States Champion Shelton Benjamin & Mark Henry (w/ Tony Atlas).  MVP and Benjamin start.  They’ll wrestle for the title this week on Smackdown.  Commercial.  Steve Austin Hall of Fame commercial.  Back to the match, where Henry has MVP in a bearhug.  MVP plays face in peril for a while.  He counters a Paydirt attempt with an overhead belly-to-belly and makes the hot tag to Christian.  Christian hits his reverse DDT on Benjamin for a near fall, decks Mark Henry on the apron, hits a monkey flip and a sunset flip out of the corner for a near fall.  Christian hits a tornado DDT and covers, but Mark Henry comes in and pulls him off the cover.  MVP comes in and he and Christian deal with Henry.  Christian decks Tony Atlas, but Benjamin hits him with the Paydirt for the win at 8:56.  Good match.

12 Rounds plug.  I AM SO FUCKING SICK OF THIS MOVIE and it hasn’t even come out yet.

Finlay looks for Hornswoggle and finds DJ Gabriel and Alicia Fox, who are dancing.

EVAN F’N BOURNE RETURNS TONIGHT!

WrestleMania XX video from last night or last week or whenever the hell they showed it.

Jamie Noble vs. Evan Bourne.  FUCK YEAH!  Awesome fast paced match.  Tyson Kidd and Natalya watch backstage.  Noble slows Bourne down by putting him in a facelock.  Bourne escapes and knees Noble in the face, then hits a swank rana.  Bourne hits a standing moonsault for a near fall.  Bourne heads to the top rope.  Noble stops him but gets kicked in the face a few times.  Bourne hits the Shooting Star press for the win at 2:56.  That ruled for a few minutes.  I want Bourne vs. Tyson Kidd!

Finlay finds Hornswoggle throwing stuff at Katie Lea.  Commercial.

Randy Orton/Triple H hype video.

Smackdown’s 500th episode this Friday night!

ECW Champion Jack Swagger comes out so the fans can look at him, then leaves.  That was pointless.

Tiffany convinces Teddy Long to have a divas night on ECW.  Paul Burchill and Katie Lea barge in to bitch about Hornswoggle.  Long books Burchill vs. Finlay tonight.

Tonight: The Dirt Sheet!

Edge/Vickie/Show/Cena stuff from Raw last night.

Paul Burchill (w/ Katie Lea) vs. Finlay (w/ Hornswoggle).  Finlay destroys Burchill as Hornswoggle bothers the announcers.  Finlay sends a charging Burchill out of the ring, but then the distraction allows Burchill to get a cheap shot and get the advantage.  Finlay gets beat up for a bit, then hits the Celtic Cross for the win at 3:05.

The Dirt Sheet is NEXT!

Undertaker/Michaels hype.

12 Rounds hype.  WHY DO THEY HAVE TO HYPE THIS FUCKING MOVIE 2-4 TIMES EVERY FUCKING SHOW?

The Dirt Sheet.  I’ve never seen one of these.  World Tag Team Champions The Miz and John Morrison with the Bella Twins.  Brie seems unhappy to be there, while Nikki seems happy.  They show Miz and Morrison beating Carlito and Primo on Smackdown last week.  Miz and Morrison put on masks of butts with afros.  WWE Tag Team Champions The Colons come down and bring the Carlito’s Cabana set.  The Colons challenge Miz & Morrison to a tag title unification match at WrestleMania, and they accept.  The Colons spit apples at Miz and Morrison but miss and hit the Bella that likes Miz and Morrison.  She shoves the Bella who likes Primo and Carlito.  CATFIGHT!  Each team ends up with one of the twins.  Fin.  Fun show.
