MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada
*The Pyro's explode into life as the show is live, the camera swings around the fans as they jump too there feet with excitement*
JR: Ladies and Gentleman, WWE Universe, we welcome you too Backlash! We are live from a sold out MGM Grand in Nevada, Las Vegas! And joining me on tonight's broadcast is the ever controversial, Eric Bischoff!
Bischoff: Vivaaaaaa Las Vegas! Thank you Jim Ross, welcome guys.. what a night we have for you tonight, I hope you guys are ready!
JR: We will crown the new tag team champions tonight in the tag team turmoil match, we will also see a new number one contender for either the US or IC title, with the Battle Royal!
Bischoff: Oh boy, sounds awesome Ross.. But not as awesome as seeing Brock Lesnar vs Stone Cold for the world heavyweight title!
JR: Don't forget about the WWE Title bout between CM Punk and Chris Jericho, but up next.. we are kicking off with the Ultimate Warrior vs Lex Luger!
Bischoff: And what a delusional psycho this guy Warrior is, I tell you Iâ€™m happy he is on RAW and not Nitro, but he has no part still being in the WWE
JR: Then what about Lex Luger, Eric?
Bischoff: This guy is in great shape and still at the top of his game, just look at him
JR: There is no doubting he is in great shape, but how can you say he is at the top? Need I remind you Warrior was the first WWE Champion since the rebranding of the WWE.
Bischoff: But thatâ€™s because guys like Luger and Lesnar werenâ€™t here yet.
JR: Then what about Elimination Chamber?
Bischoff: What about it? Warrior didnâ€™t do anything, he didnâ€™t eliminate one other person except for JBL at the end. And that is because JBL eliminated two other people while Warrior just stood around and watched. Plus JBL ended up stealing the WWE Championship because Warrior is incompetent.
Bischoff: This guy should be fired. You donâ€™t get the WWE Championship stolen from you, get it replaced and act like nothing happens.
JR: You all done ranting Eric? This match does need to start.
Bischoff: Yea the sooner the better, we all know nobody wants to see Warrior or a RAW match, we all know the fans watch for Nitro.
JR: Say what you will, Iâ€™ll let the match speak for itself
Ultimate Warrior vs. Lex Luger
Watch 5:50- 10:50
JR: What a blatant rake of the eye by Luger
Bischoff: What rake of the eye? The ref didnâ€™t say anything.
Luger continues to punch Warrior and backs him into the turnbuckle. Luger mounts Warrior and hits punches to the head of Warrior. Luger steps down, and Warrior groggily steps out, and Luger hits a hip toss. Warrior slides, gets up, runs at Luger, who turns it into a snap scoop powerslam, cover
Two- kickout by Warrior
Luger argues with the ref for a brief moment, then turns back to Warrior. He picks Warrior up and hits a vertical suplex. Luger picks Warrior up once again, and this time hits a rib breaker.
JR: Boy Warrior is sure taking a punishment, how much longer can he last?
Bischoff: Hopefully not long
Luger picks Warrior up one more time in a military press position. Luger then does some reps while holding Warrior up, and then lifts him up one final time and holds him there. Warrior then jumps off and hits a clothesline, followed by another. Warrior then hits a big boot, and then a leaping shoulder block. Warrior goes over to the ropes and begins to shake them violently.
JR: Where does Warrior get this energy from?
Bischoff: Isnâ€™t it obvious? Steroids.
Luger gets up groggily, and Warrior hits an inverted atomic drop, followed by another big boot. Luger is down, and Warrior runs around the ring.
JR: Warriorâ€™s feeling it
Warrior then runs off the ropes, andâ€¦
Bischoff: What a counter by Luger, no splash for Warrior that time
Luger got the knees up and Warrior laded on them. Warrior is crawling on all fours as Luger gets up. Luger then grabs Warrior by the head and hits a knee to the gut. He picks Warrior up, wastes no time and hits a military press slam. Luger stalks Warrior and waits for him to get up. When Warrior gets up, Luger hits a running forearm smash, coverâ€¦
Thr- KICKOUT by Warrior!
JR: How does he do it, how does he get this energy?
Bischoff: I donâ€™t know but I donâ€™t like it
Luger argues with the ref as Warrior begins to stir. As Luger continues to argue with the ref, he turns right into a shoulder block and knocks Luger down. Warrior turns and runs against the ropes. Luger was playing possum for when Warrior comes off the ropes, Luger hits him with a snap scoop powerslam. Warrior gets up and Luger picks him up and locks in the Torture Rack
Bischoff: This is it Warrior is going to tap
JR: Donâ€™t talk so fast
Warrior is flailing his arms as Luger applies more pressure, trying to get a hold of everything. Warrior gets close to the ropes and is able to scrape it with his fingertips, but Luger moves back to the middle of the ring and Warrior has no choice but to tap.
Bischoff: I told you. Luger is at the top of his game, Warrior is way past his prime.
JR: A hell of a fight from Warrior, just when you thought he was done, he made a comeback, unfortunately it wasnâ€™t enough
Bischoff: Unfortunate I donâ€™t think so
JR: No but this may be, what the hell is he doing here
*What JR is referring to is Randy Orton who ran down the ramp past Luger and climbs into the ring. Orton stands in the corner and is starting to seethe as Warrior begins to stir on the ground. Warrior doesnâ€™t know Orton is in the ring, and as he gets to all fours, Orton runs at Warriorâ€¦
JR: No donâ€™t do it you son of a bitch!
Bischoff: There it is a punt to the skull!
JR: How can you enjoy this? This is sick.
Bischoff: I didnâ€™t say I did, but Orton is a Nitro superstar, so I have to support this
JR: How can you support someone like this? This man is sick, he has issues. He just punted Ultimate Warrior, one of the legends of this business, in the skull. I mean look at this how can anyone condone these actions
*JR is talking about Warrior receiving medical treatment, as he is loaded onto a stretcher.*
JR: This man has a family to support. Now he canâ€™t even do that because Orton may have put him out of wrestling forever.
Bischoff: While JR loses his cool, we will move on to one of the better matches tonight, a Nitro match!
JR: Well this next match has been bubbling over on Nitro, and weâ€™re going to see Kevin Steenâ€™s debut match here! Eric, how about you fill us in?
Bischoff: Well ever since Kevin Steen debuted, heâ€™s had an issue with R-Truth and his comedic ways. Heâ€™s trying to convey a message of real wrestling.
JR: Well that certainly sounds about right, but I have to back Truth- he makes great contributions to the WWE universe!
Bischoff: Heâ€™s a guy with an imaginary friend!
JR: But the fans love him.
Bischoff: They WHAT him half the time!
JR: And the other half, they love him.
Bischoff: Just look at this!
JR: Whatâ€™s wrong with this?
Bischoff: Heâ€™s a disgrace to wrestling.
JR: Well I donâ€™t think his ability has waivered.
Bischoff: Here comes a real wrestler!
JR: Is he not being joined by S.C.U.M?
Bischoff: Apparently not.
JR: Well, it looks like this may actually be a fair fight.
Match 2: R-Truth vs. Kevin Steenhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4JhkLUwpKg(stop at 7:26)
Bischoff: Huge big boot from Steen! Truth is down!
JR: What a match this has been, very physical.
*Steen grabs Truth by the hair and drags him up to his feet. He pushes Truth back into the ropes and goes for a Superkick but Truth catches the foot and twists over to hit a spinning heel kick to take Steen down. He bounces off the ropes and hits a leg drop, before going for a quick cover.
Steen kicks out as Truth continues the assault, going for a sleeper hold, but Steen reverses out and hits a quick armdrag. Both men reach their feet and Truth runs at Steen but Steen hits a quick spinebuster. He drags Truth across to the ropes before jumping up to the top rope. He sets it up and goes for the 450 Splash but Truth moves, only for Steen to land on his feet! He turns around and Truth hits the Little Jimmy! He covers Steen.
Steen powers out as Truth canâ€™t believe it. He backs up to the corner as Steen uses the ropes to climb to his feet. Truth runs at him but Steen hits a Superkick from nowhere! Both men fall to the ground as Steen rolls over and covers Truth.
Truth kicks out as Steen pounds the canvas in anger. He reaches his feet and complains to the ref it was three. During Steenâ€™s rant, Truth uses the corner to reach his feet, before running at Steen as he turns. He goes for a Lie Detector but Steen catches him! He executes a perfect F-Cinq, before collapsing into a cover.
JR: Steen is the winner!
Bischoff: What a debut for Kevin Steen!
The camera cuts backstage where Kelly Kelly is shown backstage, sitting in a beach chair, with one man fanning her, and another feeding her grapes. A third man comes up, looking at her.
Man #3: Ms Kelly, Scott Stanford is here to interview you.
Kelly: Send him in.
The man turns, as he opens the door and Scott Stanford walks in with a mic. He walks over to Kelly Kelly.
Scott: Thank you for taking a moment to let me interview you Kelly Kelly.
Kelly: Only my friends call me Kelly Kelly. Everyone else calls me Ms Kelly.
Scott: I'm sorry Ms Kelly.
Scott goes to sit down.
Kelly: Did I say you could sit?! You'll stand if you want this interview.
Scott: Um...ok. So Ms Kelly, we know you have returned to the WWE. Why exactly?
Kelly: Why? Here is why. Before I left this death trap of a company, Vince McMahon and John Laurinitus asked me to sign a long term contract. Well, the dollars were right, so I did. I told them though that I wanted time to persue my own ideas. They allowed it, so I left. I posed for magazines like Maxim, featured in People, and guest starred on shows like How I Met Your Mother and Two and a Half Men. I became the female Rock, finding success outside of wrestling. I thought i was out of it, until John called me up saying I had dates to complete for my contract. So...here I am...back in the WWE.
Scott: Oh yeah! You were the girl who hooked up with Ashton Kutcher! I loved that episode!
Kelly: If you don't have any more questions, please leave.
Scott: I'm sorry...I have a few more. Now that you are back in the WWE, what do you hope to accomplish?
Kelly: Is there a Diva's Champion? I didn't so think. How about I regain that title. Heck, I'm the only person in the last 5 years who made that title mean something. On top of that though Scott, I'm going to shut these fans up. I've heard them chant while I wrestle. "Kelly Kelly can't wrestle" "Kelly Kelly is all looks". My big goal with coming back, is to show them the bad ass side of Kelly Kelly. To show them that I am more than just a model. I am the Trish Stratus of this generation. I will be the center piece of the diva's division, and no one will stop me.
Scott: Do you have any thoughts for the other women in your division?
Kelly: Yes....stay out of my way. This isn't the same Kelly Kelly who would smile at the camera's, hug the little kids, and pose with the troops. No...this Kelly Kelly is about fame, money and gold. Any diva that gets in my way...well...they'll understand the meaning of getting their ass beat. Now...this tiresome dribble with you has tired me out. Leave now so I may rest.
Scott: But i...
Kelly: GET OUT NOW!!!!!!
The third man grabs Stanford, shoving him out of the room, as the first man goes back to fanning and the 2nd goes back to feeding her.
JR: Well folks, it's been a great start to our PPV tonight and I can assure you we still have plenty too come!
Bischoff: Are you kidding me Ross? The best is yet too come.. I'm talking about Nitro's main event! Brock Lesnar vs Stone Cold Steve Austin! That's the show stealer right there!
JR: I had a feeling you might say that..
Bischoff: What's up next?
JR: Well Eric, up next we have our first Divas PPV match since the Re-brand of the WWE, it's the perfect balance of power and beauty, Tamina Snuka... vs the anti diva, Paige!
Bischoff: Meh. None of them two match up too the ever delightful Sable!
JR: Oh please, delightful? She didn't seem too delightful over at Raw...
Bischoff: She's a Bischoff and Nitro kind of girl.. what can I say Ross?
JR: Really? I here she's a where ever the money is kind of girl.
Bischoff: You're just jealous she don't like you Ross.. Lets just get on with the show, care to explain how this feud came about? I haven't had the time too keep up with everything going on at Raw!
JR: I will do you one better, Folks where going too take you back and refresh your mind on just how the Paige, Tamina rivalry came about.
*Just as Jim Ross finishes speaking, the Titantron comes on and a video highlight begins too play featuring the rivalry between Paige and Tamina!*
Bischoff: I do love a good cat fight Ross!
JR: Well stay tuned, because we damn sure about too see one!
*Paige makes her way from behind the curtain too a chorus of boo's, the Anti-Diva shrugs it off and begins too strut down too the ring ignoring and blanking any bad reaction from the crowd coming her way*
JR: The self proclaimed Anti-Diva folks! Raised from a very good wrestling background, this women has the attitude and the skills too match!
*As Tamina steps out from behind the curtain and on to the stage, she has a total opposite reaction too the one Paige had.. the daughter of the hall of famer Jimmy Snuka is greeted with big cheers and a good ovation, Tamina does the trademark super fly sign on the stage before making her way too the ring with a big smile on her face!*
JR: This is what every young women who dreams of becoming a wrestler wants folks! I know Tamina has been very excited all day at this opportunity and plans on making the most of it!
Bischoff: I'm sure Paige is feeling the same way Ross! they both can't win!
*Tamina and Paige both now stand in the ring, both women square up showing how far there rivalry has come.. the ref try's too split them up, only for Paige to slap Tamina across the face!*
Bischoff: Ouch! *Bischoff laughs*
*As the crowd chant "Ohhh" Tamina takes a step back and begins too smile.. that's smile quickly changes as Tamina rushes towards Paige knocking her down with big clothesline as the ref calls for the ring bell*
Tamina vs Paige (Kaitlyn)
Start at 1:40 stop at 6:09
JR: Look at the strength from Tamina!
Bischoff: Now that's impressive, how did she escape from that lock!
*Tamina with Paige on her shoulders, drops with the Samoan drop, with Paige laid out on the canvas, Tamina grabs Paige and begins too drag her closer too the turnbuckle, she them begins too climb to the tope rope*
JR: I think we know whats coming here folks! Shades of her father.
*Before Tamina can fly, Paige is quickly up too her feet and begins too climb the turnbuckle too, she begins letting of shots too Tamina face before hitting an acrobatic hurcarana of the top rope!*
Bischoff: What a move from Paige! that could be it.. could be all over here with this pin!
JR: Tamina kicked out!
*Paige with a look of shear surprise across her face begins too grip her hair in shock, She then begins shouting at the referee suggesting it was a slow count, she then grabs Tamina by her hair and drags her up too her feet, Paige then begins too trash talk before kicking Tamina in the midsection*
JR: I believe Paige is looking for her signature Knight light, that inverted fisherman's brain buster!
Bischoff: Can she lift the bigger Tamina?
JR: Well.. she's gonna try!
*Paige looks too lift Tamina up with the Knight Light, but the strong and bigger Tamina is able too reverse with the snap mare suplex, Tamina then wastes no time and once again goes top rope looking for the..*
JR: Superfly Smash! connects! this could be it right here!
JR: Tamina wins! Tamina wins!
Bischoff: Very impressive from Tamina Snuka!
*Tamina stands in the middle of ring taking the applause and cheers from the crowd after her victory, she does the trademark Superfly stance once more as the show rolls on! The camera cuts to the back where we see Austin Aries sitting backstage in his own private locker room. Infront of him on the coffee table are four things covered by a cloths. Aries looks at the camera, with a smug look across his face.*
Aries: Ever since signing the dotted line of my contract, people have been asking "Aries, have you sold out?" "Aries, have you traded your soul for a shot at fame" "Aries, why did you turn your back on ROH and TNA?" To any and all of those people, I have this to say. Shhhh. I didn't sell out or turn my back on anyone. This business is about reaching that pinnacle reaching that point where you are the top dog. I may not be the biggest, and I may not be the strongest, but I am one of the hardest workers in this industry. Do you want proof? I'll show you.
Aries pulls one of the cloths off, revealing the ROH World title on the table.
Aries: This right here, this was the pinnacle of ROH. I held this title not once, but twice! I am the only man in the history of ROH to hold this title twice. If that doesn't say I'm a hard worker, well, the other's I have to share might. Speaking of ROH though, there is a man here I want to address. His name is Kevin Steen and he is a piece of trash. Steen, not if..but when our paths cross, I will drop you on your head and make you tap out.
Aries pulls the next cloth off, and reveals the TNA X Division title.
Aries: Look at this title. The X Division championship. I held this title for 298 days, the longest that someone has ever held that title. I defend against the likes of Samoa Joe, Alex Shelley, Brian Kendrick, Zema Ion, Chris Sabin, and Kid Kash. I proved that I can pick up any ball given to me, load it onto my back, and run with it.
Aries pulls off another cloth, revealing the TNA World title.
Aries: This is the last title I held in TNA before coming to the WWE. I beat the self proclaimed leader of the selfish generation, the guy who said he had the it factor, Bobby Roode for this title. I was at the pinnacle of TNA, and it was at that moment, that the WWE took a shining to me. They said "Oh Aries, it would be great to have you in the WWE. You would make such a great addition to the WWE." So I signed it, with the idea that one day, I would claim the biggest prize of them all.
Aries pulls off the last cloth, revealing a replica WWE Championship.
Aries: That right there, is what I came here for. I came to prove to people that you don't have to be as big as Hulk Hogan or the Big Show to be champ. Speaking of people and sizes, look at tonights main event of Chris Jericho vs CM Punk. Two men who go out there and proclaim on the mic "I am the best in the world!" Do you know I don't go out there sounding like a twat proclaiming that? It's because I don't have to. I go out to that ring, and show the whole world why I am the picture of perfection. I am here to show why I deserve to be the WWE Champion. My name is A Double...and I am the greatest man that ever lived!
Aries looks into the camera, smirking. Fades to black.
JR: And now it's time for the tag team turmoil match
Bischoff: Yippee! We're gonna crown World Tag Team Champions!
JR: Well, my favourites for this match drew number 1 in this tag turmoil, meaning they will have to go through all the other 5 teams, to win this match
Bischoff: Haha. These 2 â€œthugsâ€ are gonna LOSE
Bischoff: Ah crap! These 2 don't deserve to start this contest off
JR: Well, they deserve it more than everyone else. Regal feigned an injury, to have Drew compete instead of him
Bischoff: Pure genius. I don't know how they do it.
Match 4: Tag Team Turmoil Match for the Tag Team Championships!
*JTG and Regal are starting this contest off, and they lock up. Regal gets a headlock, and takes down JTG, before retreating back to his corner. JTG is quick to his feet, and goes over to Regal, who kicks him in the gut. Regal grabs the arm, and wrenches it overhead, before tagging in McIntyre with his free hand. Regal keeps wrenching the arm, as McIntyre goes to the second rope, and lands a double axe handle to the shoulder. Regal leaves the ring, as McIntyre grabs the head of JTG, and lands a side Russian leg sweep, before covering.

Shad follows Drew, who gains his breath by the announce table. Shad grabs Drew's hair, and smashes Drew's head against the table, before sending Drew into the steel steps. Shad taunts to the crowd, but turns into an elbow from Regal, which sends Shad to his knee's.

He locks in a front facelock of Shad, before stepping back towards Regal, who gets the tag.

McIntyre starts stomping on JTG's stomach, 8 or 9 times over, before the referee pulls him away. Drew goes over to his countryman and high fives him, before taunting at the crowd, who begins cheering for some unknown reason. Drew has a look of confusion over his face, before turning around, and being taken down by a clothesline from Shad! Regal enters, and begins exchanging punches with Shad.
At this time JTG comes in and turns Regal around, before taking him down with a drop toe hold. The crowd pops, but those cheers turn to jeers when McIntyre runs over to Shad, and takes him down with a complete shot! The referee tries to get Shad out of the ring, as JTG swings a shot. Drew ducks, and kicks JTG low, to the disgust of the crowd. Regal is on the apron, and gets the tag, however Drew stays in the ring.

PRIME TIME PLAYERS HAS BEEN ELIMINATED
Bischoff: Prime Time Players are eliminated? Oh no
JR: How much did they take out of Benjamin and Haas though Eric?
*Ziggler and Swagger sprint down to the ring, with Vickie following behind. They look at the damage surveyed in the ring, at the previous two falls work. Swagger goes to the apron, as Ziggler immediately drops on Haas
Ziggler rolls Haas over, and locks in a choke. He proceeds to perform a handstand whilst having the hold locked in, which cause Vickie to cheer loudly for the show off. Dolph drops down, and tags in Swagger, who sits up Haas. He drives his knee in the back of Haas, before grabbing the arms, and stretching them back. Haas can do nothing but scream in pain. Eventually, somehow, Haas finds the strength to throw Swagger over his body, which sends him into the ZigSwag corner. He rolls to the opposite apron, before Ziggler gets the tag. Haas springboards off the ropes, but goes straight into a dropkick from Ziggler
Ziggler tells the crowd that it's over, as he awaits Haas to get up. It seems Haas doesn't want to get to his feet, as if he knows what's coming. Eventually, he manages to stand, as Ziggler locks in a sleeper! He falls to the mat, body scissors locked in. Haas can't resist, as Vickie and Swagger look on happily from ringside. Haas doesn't seem to be responding, so the referee raises his arm. The first time â€“ it drops. He tries again â€“ it drops. The referee indicates that this is the final time. He lifts the arm in the air, and it...
Winner and NEW World Tag Team Champions: ZIGSWAG!
JR: They did it! They did it! Jack Swagger and Dolph Ziggler are the World Tag Team Champions
Bischoff: They're Nitro champions as well Jim. Nitro has the Tag Titles
JR: They're still inter-branded titles Eric
Bischoff: But still, the first tag champions are on Nitro!
JR: Time for another RAW is WAR match, and this one is personal. Tyler Black will take on John Cena.
Bischoff: Itâ€™s time for Cena to take a step back and let a guy like Black have the spotlight
JR: Cena is fighting for the spotlight just like everyone else; Black canâ€™t just come in here and expect it to be handed to him.
Bischoff: Cena has hogged the spotlight for too long, Black just wants to make it known he is here, and he is the future
JR: Well I beg to differ. Cena has shown no signs of wanting to or slowing down so he will do this as long as he can, and if he is the best so be it
Bischoff: Well tonight that changes
Bischoff: Tonight Tyler Black steps into the spotlight and pushes Cena over.
JR: Itâ€™s not going to be that easy
Tyler Black vs. John Cena
JR: And Black continues to be in control of this match. Just when you think Cena is about to make a comeback, Black comes back and takes control
Bischoff: Thatâ€™s what it takes to be the face of the WWE
Black locks in a rear chin lock on Cena once again. Cena fights to his feet, elbows the gut of Black a few times and is able to break the hold. Cena runs off the ropes and Black hits a jumping corkscrew roundhouse kick, cover

Th- kickout by Cena!

Bischoff: Why? He got rid of the Warrior, if anything.. he should be getting a title shot or something, in fact.. I'm going too see what I can do for him on Nitro!
JR: You're as bad as he is.. I can't believe I have sat here watching this man, attack legend after legend, week in and week out and nothing has been done!
Orton: What i did to warrior earlier tonight was an act of conscience.I did a favor to me to all of you and to the whole WWE by kicking him in the scull and ending he's career, well this time for good.Ultimate Warrior is a disgrace of a man.Warrior being the WWE champion was the worst thing that ever happened to WWE.And now he came back and you handed him them WWE title again.Off course those dark days of Warrior being the champion are now over.But that wasn't enough for me.You see i'm the future, i'm the legend Killer Randy Orton and i couldn't stand watching that hasbeen Ultimate Warrior being not only the champion but being in the WWE roster too.
Boos from the crowd
Orton: I don't understand why you are booing me.I saved all of you from watching that circus freak show every.I'm sick and tired watching this old idiots coming back and make a fool of themselves every week.That's why i brought the old good Legend Killer Randy Orton back.
More boos from the fans.Some of them are chanting "you suck"
JR: Don't worry Orton, You will get yours.. You will come undone and one of these legends is going too stop you in your tracks!
Bischoff: Oh please! who's going too stop Orton? You? Me? No one can.. No one!
Orton: You see as all of you know i'm a third Generation superstar.WWE is in my blood and what i do every week is to help WWE getting better and better.And that's the reason that i'm better than all of these so called "legends" and every other wrestler in the back.But i understand how they feel sitting back home watching me winning title after title.They wanted to feel relevant again.But what they don't understand is that they can't wrestle anymore.They don't understand that no one is better than than me.So that's why i want to prove to them that i'm the best.So tonight i'm calling any legend from the back to face me tonight.I don't care who will be but what i care, what i want is to end another legends career with a kick to the scull....
JR: NO! it can't be.. it's.. it's!

Heyman climbs back out as Sable drops down finally. The referee turns around as Brock manages to cover Austin.
JR: That cheating SOB!
Bischoff: Lesnar is STILL the World Heavyweight Champion!
The fans in the arena bay for more action, chanting and cheering continuously as they enjoy the nights entertainment. Too innocent are they to see between the lines, to see what tonight represents, battle lines, the war between good and evil. Too naive are they to realise that wrestling represents more than a spectacle, too blind to see that greater forces are at work.
JR: We're about ready for our next match, and I can assure you that this is gonna be an old fashioned slobber knocker!
Bischoff: I damn sure hope so JR, tonight has been fantastic so far and long may it continue.
JR: Well, these two men have history, and right now I feel.. what the!?
The lights in the arena flicker and die out, the crowd get excited and camera's flash all around the arena. In the confusion an Undertaker chant rings out from the fans, expecting the dead man to be on his way to the ring, they are wrong. A low, humming noise rings out across the building, a sound that brings anticipation with it, the people become quiet, waiting for what comes next.
JR: By God i'm afraid I don't really know what's going on here, i'm as confused as everyone as right now.
Up on the screen, rain begins to fall, there is a storm, a wispy curtain blows into view with a flash of lightning. An empty room illuminates briefly with another flash, a lone figure in a long black trenchcoat stands with his back to the camera. The voice of a child rings out.
"When a mans heart is full of deceit, it burns up.. dies, and a dark shadow falls over his soul. From the ashes of a once great man, is risen a curse.. a wrong that must be righted."
The voices stops for a moment, another flash of lightning and the camera leaps closely to the figure whose trenchcoat now blows in the wing along with his dark shoulder length hair.
"We look to the skies for a vindicator, someone to strike fear into the black hearts of the sane man who created him.. the battle between good, and evil has begun."
Another flash of lightning and clash of thunder and another leap closer to the man, the camera now lies directly behind him, he stands there motionless as the wind continues to blow his hair gently.
"Against an army of shadows lies the dark warrior, the prevailer of good.. with a voice of silence and a mission of justice.."
The camera slides down the figure, into view comes a black baseball bat hanging from his left hand and resting against his boot.
Bischoff: I've seen this all before... JR.. you don't think.. that's not.. it can't be!
"This is Sting."
A final flash of lightning and Stings face is revealed, wearing his trademark black and white face paint, a sombre and sorrowful look upon his face as he stares at the camera. He raises his bat to rest against his shoulder and the camera pans backwards slowly. Another flash of lightning, and Sting is gone. The low humming noise fades away, the screen becomes black and the lights of the arena come back on. The fans are cheering at the top of their voices, Sting has finally come to the WWE. A chant of 'Stinger! Stinger!' rings out, people have already forgotten about the next match momentarily.
JR: I don't believe it, Sting! Sting in WWE! I never thought i;d see the day!
Bischoff: What the hell!? The NWO disbanded years ago, who's ticked him off this time!?
JR: Damned if I know Eric, but whoever they are.. I'm glad I ain't them.http://illiweb.com/fa/empty.gif
