Total Extreme Wrestling 08 Betting Blog

There’s a wrestling manager simulation game entitled Total Extreme Wrestling, previously known as Extreme Warfare Revenge. I’ll admit – I am hooked on this game, and I’ve been purchasing them every year. I bore my friends with big stories on the game, and all these plans I have – yet after a few months of in-game time playing, I get bored, and change my attention to something else.Play at this years #1 online casino for United States - Slots.LV.
Total Extreme Wrestling and many other sports games are available at Grey Dog Software BTW.

With the launch of TEW 2008, I was challenged by a friend. I spent all this time talking about my plans for it, and how I was going to relaunch WCW and take over WWE. My friend was tired of me talking about it so he set me a challenge – a wager, if you will.

He would set WCW up for me, with his own settings(pre-approved by me). I would then have a year of in-game time to beat the WWE RAW TV ratings. I would win the bet if I did that. I had to complete the year within 30 days of real time or I lost the bet. I also had to write up reports of each match and TV show so that he knew I was playing it legitimately.

And so I accepted the bet. This page will list all the TV reports for Vin to keep track of, and make sure I am playing the game. I must complete one year, as well as take over WWE, or I owe him $1k.

WCW Nitro:

– WCW Nitro started, with Tony Schiavone in the ring. A restless crowd wanted action, and they got it as Tony introduced the new commissioner of World Championship Wrestling………..ERRRIC Bischoff! Bischoff came out, and said that he knew, one day, Ted Turner would see sense and bring WCW back…then he’d see more sense, and set Bischoff as the commissioner! Bischoff says that he’s back where he should be, running World Championship Wrestling…….and he’s going to run things HIS way….the way he WANTS! [B]
– But suddenly…that’s..that’s…THAT’S BRET HARTS MUSIC! What the hell? ITS BRET! ITS BRET! ITS BRET THE HITMAN HART! Bret grabs the microphone and says “Bischoff…..I got great news for ya….Ted Turner only hired you to do the grunt work…now that the show is on the road, so are you…I AM THE NEW COMMISSIONER, and you can go walk over to the announce booth, and do what you are meant to do, and provide commentary.” Bischoff looks stunned, then walks off disappointed. [B+]
– “Now…if there’s anyone out there who don’t know exactly what is happening or who I am…let me introduce myself. I am the best there is, I am the best there was, and I am the best there ever will be, Bret The Hitman Hart! And as commissioner of WCW, I’m going to put things right! Everyone remember when Vince screwed me? Well now I’m going to screw him at his own game, by putting on the greatest show on the planet, WCW Monday Nitro! To start things off, we’ll have a TV Title match tonight, and I will also be presenting the US Title later. Not only that, but boy, do I have some surprises in store for you. First of all, the world title will be put on the line at WCW Starrcade later this month, in a fatal 4-way match. The participants of that match? Well, we will have four matches over the next four weeks, and the winners of those matches will be in the main event of WCW Starrcade. Who will the wrestlers be? Well, I don’t want to give anything away….but what if I told you one of the participants would be……..Sting???? [crowd pops] And what if I said another would be……….Hulk Hogan? [crowd even louder] And hey, two weeks on Nitro, that’s two weeks people, we’ll be seeing a former WCW World Champion, one of, if not THE greatest WCW wrestler of all time…why, it’ll be BILL GOLDBERG!!! [place explodes] [A+]
– “…and tonight, tonight in this very ring, we will be having one of WCW’s favourites, Booker T[crowd pops]….against…..well, I don’t want to say his name until it’s confirmed, but I’m quite sure that it’ll shock you. Enjoy the show everyone! [A]
– As we come back from a commercial…oh my god, that’s Roddy Piper in the ring! It’s Pipers Pit, brought back from the dead! And the guest tonight, will be in the Television title match later…….it’s REY! MYSTERIO! JR!!!!!!!! Oh my lord almighty. Rey says that he couldn’t turn down the chance to come back to WCW. “This…this is the company that made me. This is the company that produced stars like Eddie Guerrero. This is a company that will not use a wrestlers death as a cheap ratings ploy. This…is WCW, and I will become the greatest television champion there has ever been, and will go down in history!” Rey says that there is a lot of talent in the match, The Great Sasuke….Billy Kidman…….and one of the hottest up and comers in the business, CM Punk. However Rey promises to win the title, and wrestle each and every week, to become the greatest TV Champ. [C]
– Psicosis defeated Elix Skipper. [B]
– CM Punk is backstage, with Bret Hart wishing him luck, and thanking him for signing with WCW…when along walks Billy Kidman with Torrie Wilson!!! Kidman says “So this is the great CM Punk huh? Everywhere I go, I hear about how good you are.” CM Punk says “Look man, I just want to go out there and do my match okay? I want to win the title, I don’t want any trouble from you, okay?”. Kidman laughs, puts his hand on Punk’s shoulder and says “Man, I just really wanted to meet you. I heard you’re good. Good luck tonight bud”. Kidman and Torrie walk off, as CM Punk stares after them. [C]
– A limousine pulled up to the building….and out stepped… that’s Lita? LITA??? And who is that in the limo with her? ITS EDGE!! OH MY GOD! EDGE! EDGE IS IN WCW! EDGE IS THE ONE FIGHTING BOOKER T TONIGHT!!! [A+]
– Bret Hart came out, with the US Title in hand. He says that tonight…tonight is an honour, because he gets to do something special, and that’s give the US Title to one of the most deserving superstars in the business. “I might not have always got along with him, but I’ve always respected him…give it up…FOR THE NATURE BOY, RIC FLAIR!!!” [A+]
– Ric Flair comes out, as the crowd go absolutely insane! “WHOOOOOOO! NORTH CAROLINA……LETS HEAR IT FOR ME, THE NATURE BOY! WHOOOO!!!!” The crowd go crazy still. “When I heard about a WCW revival, I thought, no…I KNEW…I KNEW I had to be involved in it.” Flair talks about how special WCW is to him, and how he is so proud at being able to accept the US Title for Bret Hart. “I will defend this title for me….I will defend this title for you fans…and I will defend the US Title all over, and also for, the UNITED…STATES…OF AMERRRICCAAA!!!” The fans go nuts, but then familiar music interrupts…. [A+]
– …”YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” ITS KURT ANGLE!!! WHAT THE HELL IS HE DOING HERE???? Angle comes out to a very mixed response, fans excited at seeing him, but also supporting Flair. Angle gets in the ring, and takes the microphone. “Yeah yeah..I know…it’s a shock to see me here…I mean, what is an Olympic hero doing in a shithole like Carolina???” The fans start to boo, and Angle adds “and what the hell is a shriveled up old prune like Ric Flair doing in a wrestling ring? And worse…what the hell is happening when he is being given the US Title? He can’t wrestle anymore? Let me tell you something Flair, I am Kurt Angle, I am a US Champion…hell, I am the champion of the United States of America…I am Kurt Angle, a national hero!” Kurt continues to talk, his point being that Flair shouldn’t be given the title, and that HE, Kurt Angle, an Olympic gold medalist, should. [A+]

– WCW Television Title: Rey Mysterio vs CM Punk vs The Great Sasuke vs Billy Kidman. A very solid match, worked incredibly well.

Inside the ring, Rey Mysterio hit the West Coast Pop and got the victory!!! [B+]

He says “First of all….Rey…and all the Jerichoholics…WELCOME TO…MONDAY…NIGHT…JERRRICHO!!! Now that we’ve got that out of the way, Rey, I came out here to congratulate you on becoming the television title. I also wanted to wish you luck, in becoming the best television champion in history. Of course, you’ve got a long way to go before you beat me, the man of 1004 holds. However Rey, I am curious, how are you going to accomplish that feat with a broken leg?” Rey acts confused, and asks “What broken leg?”. Jericho laughs and says “Oh Rey Rey…THIS ONE!” and brutally attacks Reys leg!!! What the hell? Jericho pounds on his leg till security breaks it up, then celebrates. [A]

I mean first theres Bret, then theres Angle, oh and can’t forget Jericho…and then oh holy mother, an actual superstar for a change, it’s Edge! Well let me tell you, I’ve busted my ass in this business for years, and with people on top like Triple H running things the way THEY want, I’ve decided I’m not going to put up with it anymore, I’m going to come to WCW, kick everyones ass…twice in some peoples cases, and prove myself as WCW Champion. Goldberg, you’re nothing but a flash in the pan compared to me. And Booker T…..yeah, YOU SUCK pal, and I’m going to kick your ass, and march directly onto Starrcade.?” [A+]

Whenever anyone thinks of WCW, it’s only right they think of DDP, the star of the show, the man who carried this company on his back for years! The man who went up against the likes of Hulk Hogan, Goldberg, and carried them, and made them the superstars that they were today…while kicking their asses! Tell me, is anyone…anyone, as great as me? What one of these morons in the back can say they stepped in the ring with NBA Superstars and worldwide celebrities, and kicked their asses?

While the other contenders for the title are out…well, lets see, Goldbergs out having a roid rage, Vaders out at an all you can eat buffet, Benoits busy trying to get a personality transplant, and Hogan…well, Hogan just sucks!….while all those fools are out doing their own and weird things, your next WCW Champion Edge, is here to study his opponents, so he can exploit their weaknesses.

One man, who has been here since seemingly forever, the man who put the WWE on the map, the man who hell, put WRESTLING on the map, this man, is the greatest wrestler in this entire industry because of EVERYTHING that he has done.

We’ve had quite the history, me and you, dating back to the very first Wrestlemania, but now, now we’re on the same team, the same side, and I want to thank you first of all for allowing me on your show. I also want to talk about the chance, the chance of becoming WCW World Champion, and how special it is to me. It’s not, it’s not going to be easy, that’s for sure. I’m fighting one of the best wrestlers in the industry today, Chris Benoit. Benoit is…he’s a great guy, he’s a great wrestler, and I’m really looking forward to finally stepping in the ring with him. This is, this is a very special night and…”
– DUNA DUNNA DUN, DUN DUN DUN! Oh my god, that…that’s Chris Benoits music! Benoit comes walking down to the ring, and gets in the middle of the ring with Hogan and Piper, with an almost sneering smile on his face. Hogan holds out his hand for Benoit to shake it, but Benoit just stares at it, then says “Listen Hogan, first off…save your energy, you’ll need all the energy to tap out tonight. Now, I’m back there, listening to you rant about absolutely nothing, and I hear you say that I am one of the best.” “That..thats right, you are.” “ONE OF? Hogan, I am the best goddamn wrestler in this whole [beep]ing business. I’ve wrestled all over the world, beaten superstars from everywhere, I’ve went toe to toe with Jushyn Lyger, Brock Lesnar, Matsuma, Takawada, Eddie Guerrero…I’ve been in bingo halls, I’ve been in football arenas, I’ve been at a show with 5 people and a dog, and you know what?

You’ve been in movies, you’ve been a celebrity….Hogan, you’ve been the JOKE of this business since almost day one, so don’t you come out here and say I am ONE of the best.” Hogan looks surprised, and says “Hey man, look, you’re great okay? I’m looking forward to tonights match, the crowd are excited, I’m excited, it’s…” “Why don’t you shut the hell up? You know what?

I had managed to get in the ring with three of the greatest wrestlers around, and I had managed to defeat them all, to become the WCW World Champion. For a moment, just a moment…I closed my eyes, and thought…wow, here it is. This is it, this is the greatest moment of my career. Then what happens? Well, 10 seconds later, Mr Cripple himself, Bret Hart, comes out to hey…guess what…screw me! Bret puts me in a [beep]ing singles match the night after my grueling world title win…not just any match…but a goddamn steel cage match, against a man who I beat at Starrcade, Sting! What the hell is that about?

Well, let me tell you something….standing right beside me is one of the most formidable talents in the wrestling industry. He won the original and real tough enough, and when he was in the WWE he scared the hell out of all the so-called big names, who saw a guy so talented, so charismatic, that they could steal their thunder, so they managed to get him fired. Now he’s in WCW, and I’m here to make sure that it doesn’t happen again; I’m here to steer Mavens career all the way to the top.

Bada Bing…Bada boom…Bada BAAAAAAAANNNGG!!!” [A]

I guess you could say it wasn’t up to bat.” Sting smiles, taps his bat, and walks off.

– Chris Benoit is backstage, about to do an interview, when Goldberg steps into the scene. “Benoit…I’m a man of few words, so let me tell it to you straight; last night, you were one of the causes of me not winning the WCW Title. Due to that, I want kick your ass, and I’ll do so…tonight. We can either do it in the ring, or we can do it here now, your choice.” Benoit sneers, then starts to tell Goldberg that there’s no way in hell he’ll fight him, when in steps Bret Hart, who says “Hey Goldberg, that’s actually a great idea.

The referee checked out Goldberg, then ordered the bell to be rang, and declared Benoit the winner due to knockout. [A+]

Benoit quickly rolled out of the ring, and walked up the ramp with that same sneer, as Hogan tended to Goldberg. [A+]
– Pipers Pit with Rey Mysterio: Rey made his return to WCW Nitro, after the vicious beating by Jericho 2 weeks ago. Rey says that first of all, he is okay, and he is ready to get back into action, but he just doesn’t understand. He just doesn’t. He has wrestled all over the world, in every promotion you can think of, many of those times with Jericho. He’s roomed with Jericho, he’s hung out with Jerichos family….”Chris, I considered you a friend.” And yet now Jericho seems to have some anger towards him, “so Jericho if you’re back there, get out here now and tell me exactly whats going on.” *BREAK THE WALLS DOWN* Out comes Chris Jericho, who gets in the ring. “Listen Junior, the Ayatollah of Rock & Rollah was backstage chilling out with some Jericholics…hot Jericholics. So this better be good.” “Chris…you owe me. You have to tell me what your problem is.” “I….owe you? Look junior, how about we let bygones be bygones okay? Maybe I was just having a little tantrum over the past month, but now I’m feeling okay, and I like you and all that, so how about we just be good buds from now on?” Rey looks surprised then says “You’re joking right, two weeks ago you piledrived me through a table, and now you want to be friends?”. Jericho extends his hand for Rey to shake, and the crowd boo. Rey looks at him and says “You have to be kidding me.” Jericho smiles and says “Alright alright, look, I understand, you don’t trust me…that’s cool….but I just want to bare my soul to you, and explain that…” at this point Jericho just dives across the ring and hits Rey, and starts pounding on him. He then throws him into the Pipers Pit set, smashing some of it. He then takes the stool that Piper sits on, throwing Piper off, and smokes Rey in the face with it. He then surveys the mess, turns to Piper and says “You better get this fixed up, because I’ll be on this show next week and I’ll tell you exactly why I want to end this bastards career.” [A+]

Edge bounces into the ring, Sting jumps down from the cage onto him, and the two get it on! They brawl like crazy, both men full of intensity and rage, beating the ever loving hell out of each other. Sting starts going crazy with the Stinger Splashes, hitting 8 of them as the fans count and cheer. As we get to near the end, Sting climbs up the cage to escape. Edge climbs after him, and just as Sting reaches the top, Edge low blows him, then hits him with a semi-SPEAR off the top of the cage to the ring below! Oh my god! The two are out cold, and yet after about 2 minutes the person who starts to move is Sting…Sting is crawling to the door….Sting is going to make it…Sting is going to do it…Edge is trying to get up but he won’t make it…the door opens…Sting crawls out…he’s just two feet away from becoming WCW Champion…………

I suplexed him off the cage. I backdropped him into the cage, then I speared his ass off the top of the cage, and what happened? I retained…I retained…the WCW World Heavyweight Title.” “Thanks to me”, Randy Orton pipes in, with a smile. “Yes…with a little assistance(Randy rolls his eyes) from one of the greatest wrestlers in this sport, the legend killer himself, Randy Orton, I…I…Edge, showed yet again that I am the WCW World Champion.” “Thanks to me”. “Will you stop saying that?”. “Well, it’s true.” “Look Randy, I’ve already acknowledged your help here, we’re on the same team, whats the deal?” Suddenly the arena goes dark, and we’re interrupted by…. [A]
– Stings music! Sting stands at the entranceway, furious look on his face, with his forehead bandaged up. “If you two girls will shut the hell up for a minute, I’ve got something to say. Edge, you cheating punk, you’re wearing MY World Title around your waist. I was within inches…INCHES from becoming the world champion, when Hercules over there decides to interfere in my life. Orton, you might be tough with a ski mask on and a chair in your hand against a guy who’s just fell 15 foot from a steel cage, but you’re not looking so tough now bro, so I’m going to come down there and I’m going to beat you and Edge, I’m going to beat you within an inch of your lives, and I’m going to beat the hell out of anyone who trys to stop me…yes, that includes that whore Lita….” Sting drops the microphone, and starts walking down to the ring…. [A]

Why?” Kidman says “You want to know?

I was all set to entertain the fans, put on a good match and generally have fun….and then….then Chris Benoit decides he has a chip on his shoulder. Benoit attacks me from behind, then beats on me constantly before the bell is even rung, and cheats his way to victory. Sitting at home nursing my wounds, I thought about it and thought about it, whether…whether I should retire. I watched old Benoit videos, I watched some of his moves, of his ice-cold blood, of the way he went after opponents with no mercy, and I thought to myself….no, there’s no way I can beat that. 10 years ago maybe, but now…no, not now.”

“Then…then brother, Hulk Hogan was backstage at last weeks Nitro, he saw Benoit try to attack Goldberg, and brother, something just started going off in the Hulksters heart, and I came charging out here, with 20,000 Hulkamaniacs chanting my name, and I cleared the ring with Benoit, and I knew, I knew right then…..that I’ve got what it takes, that I can go toe to toe, head to head with Benoit.

Edge uncrumples the paper and sees it says “Team Edge”. “Uh, that was Lita that put it up. That’s our new name.” Randy looks at Edge, looks at Lita, then laughs and says “Oh, okay. Yeah. Team Edge, Team Edge all the way baby!” Orton laughs again. “Anyway, just came in to wish Scotty good luck, I won’t be sticking around.” Edge looks surprised. “What if he needs our help?” Orton says “I’m sure you can handle it buddy.’ He then looks over at Lita and says “I mean if you can handle this wildcat, you can handle Sting.” He then winks at Lita and walks off, with Edge just standing there looking angry.

– Pipers Pit with Chris Jericho: Jericho came out, with a smile on his face. Piper didn’t look so happy. “Chris….Chris…I think I sum it up for everyone watching, when I ask that one and only question. Why?” Jericho smiles. “You want to know why Piper? You want to know why I’ve terrorized Rey week after week since the beginning of WCW? I’ll tell you why Junior, but if you interrupt I’ll snap your artificial hip in half, then cram it halfway down your throat. You see, people ask me day in and day out…why? I’ve been with Rey from almost day one in this business. We’ve wrestled in the same promotions, sometimes together, sometimes against each other, we’ve did it all…CMLL…AAA…New Japan…All Japan…ECW…WCW…WWE, we’ve wrestled in almost every country, we’ve been together in this business for years….and now all of a sudden, Chris Jericho turns on his little buddy Rey Mysterio Jr. Why could that be?”
– “I’ll tell you why. Because all the time, all throughout those years, in every single promotion, Rey Mysterio decided to be the superstar. He decided to hog the limelight, to steal the show, to come out of every card looking better than Y2J did. Jericho has a big fight coming up? Well Rey will put his working boots on, put on a five star match and completely make Jericho look bad! People used to come up to me and say ‘Man, that Rey Mysterio is good. Why can’t you do the moves that he does?’. Why? Why??? Because that little runt is a freak of nature! Yet everywhere we go, he always steals the limelight. Anyone remember my celebrations when I won the WWE World Title? Remember the big fuss that was made? No, me either. Remember the big fuss when Rey won it? Yeah, there you go. And now that little prick…he wanted to come to WCW, and become known as the worlds greatest television champion? That was the last straw, I will go down in history as WCW’s greatest television champion, and now, I’m also going down in history as the man that ended Rey Mysterio Jrs career…because that’s what I’m going to do given the chance…I’m going to destroy that little bastard, and ain’t nobody gonna stop me.” [A]

Flair and Angle put on a very solid match, Angle dominated mostly, and was beating the hell out of Flair, but couldn’t get the three count, even after an angle slam!!!! Angle then got a glint in his eye, and put Flair in the Anglelock oh my god!!! Right in the center of the ring too. Flair managed to use every ounce of strength he had and crawl over to the ropes…and GOT THEM! Angle tried to pull him off the ropes, but Flair held on for dear life. The referee finally got Angle to drop Flairs leg, at which point Flair got up and started chopping at Angle. Angle grabbed him and hit him with a belly to belly, then did the Flair walk. Angle then put Flair in the figure four…no wait…Flair rollup..ONE TWO THREE!! RIC FLAIR WINS! RIC FLAIR RETAINS THE US TITLE. [A+]

The greatest human being in the whole of the United States of America, to become the champion of all the US people, of the US nation…hell, the champion of all those immigrants that serve burritos and slurpys at 4 in the morning. Yet again and again, Ric Flair has managed to get in my way, with the cheapest finishes anyone can do. Although ‘Flair’ and ‘cheap’….they go together, have you seen his wife? Talk about the three I’s, that one was idiocy! Flair, you’ve managed to get lucky against me 3 times…which is 3 times more than your wife wishes. First, a time limit expiry, followed by a freak figure four, and to end matters on a hot note, a friggin rollup! Who the hell wins by a rollup??? Not a US Champion, that’s for sure.”
– “So Flair, I’m standing out in this ring, asking…no…DEMANDING…another shot at your title. Lets do it, one on one, me and the champ, one more time, any match you want, come on Flair, lets get it on.” [A+]
– WOOOOOOOO! Out comes the WCW United States Champion, The Nature boy, RIC FLAIR! “Well Kurt I..hold on…hold on……WOOOOOOOOOO! Okay now that we have that out of…wait..wait…one more….yep there it is…WOOOOO! WOOOOOOOOOO! Okay Kurt, I was backstage listening to you beg and beg for a title shot….and you know what, I almost…ALMOST…want to grant it to you. However why do you deserve a title shot? I mean, really? What have you done to deserve one? Lost twice to me? Lost TWICE to me, The Nature Boy? Look Flair, there’s a lot of other contenders out there, so I’ll give you a chance….tonight, in that very ring, face one of the other contenders and beat him….and I’ll consider a title match for Souled Out.” “Flair, you got it, and I’ll even do the five minute Kurt Angle challenge to prove how I deserve it.” “No no you don’t have to do 5 minutes…hell, you probably won’t even last 5 minutes as your girlfriends in high school can attest to…..see Kurt, tonight, in that very ring, you will be taking on the man known as uh…oh whats his name…oh yeah….

Benoit isn’t tagging! Benoits standing there, just staring at Hogan! What the hell? Edge is trying to make Benoit tag, but I think Benoits scared of Hogan! Hogan looks pretty damn hyped up. Benoit is standing there chewing his gum watching Hogan…Hogan is begging Benoit to tag in…and he doesn’t! Benoit walks down the steps, and starts to walk off! What the hell???

– Randy Orton is backstage, sitting down with Mean Gene Okerlund. “Randy, thanks for taking the time to sit with me.” “Yeah, you better be thanking me. Not many people get one on one time with the champ.” “Well, you’re not the champ.” “Yet.” “Okay Randy, so the first question has to be…Why? Why did you come to WCW?” “Money. WCW offered me more money, so that’s why I came here. I don’t give two craps about this being where the big boys play, or the oh so great heritage dating back to the NWA where Ricky Steamboat took on Jesus H. Christ himself in a loser goes on Noahs Ark for a month match. I was offered lots of money, so I took it.” “Why did you align yourself with Edge?”. “You know the old saying…keep your friends close and your enemies closer?” “Yeah…” “Well Edge isn’t my enemy, but he’s one of the most dangerous wrestlers in this business. He’s someone that has a heart for this business, that will do everything he can to get ahead, even if it involves screwing his best friends girlfriend. A guy like that, I respect it, and I’m happy to be aligned in WCW with Edge.” “Okay, so now you’re in WCW, what is your goal?”. “My goal? My goal is to do what every other one of these chumps want to do, my goal is to become the champion, to make the money, to headline the shows…I want to become WCW World Champion, and god forbid someone step in my way.” “But the current WCW Champion…your…well…I guess not friend…your partner…the guy you’re aligned with…is Edge.” “What did I just say Gene? I said god forbid anyone that steps in my way.” “Well…” “No, hold on, let me ask YOU a question Gene. You’ve been in this business awhile now haven’t you?” “Over 30 years.” “30, and you’re quite well known huh?” “Yes, yes I guess I am.” “Well isn’t that interesting….so, you’d almost say, you’d almost say that you’re a LEGEND in this business?” Gene starts to answer, then understands what Orton is getting at…”…no…”. Gene stumbles up and starts to run off, but Orton catches him, hits him with the RKO, and leaves him laying on the ground. Orton then turns to the camera, smiles, and says “No-one is safe friend or foe, from the dreaded….dreaded…R-K-O! Damn, I’m so talented I can write poetry too. I am gooood!” Randy then spits in the downed Mean Genes face, as Nitro goes off the air. [A+]

– After about 30 seconds wait, Randy Orton comes out, smile and surprised look on his face. He enters the ring, and says “Whats up dawg?” [A]
– “WHATS UP??? WHATS UP???? Let me tell you whats up! You come on Nitro, and help me in my cage match against Sting…great. Since then, all you’ve tried to do is undermine me. You remind everyone that it was your help that won me that match. You then aren’t there to back Scott Steiner up in his match against Sting, and then last week, not only are you nowhere in sight when I have a huge tag team match, not only do you not back me up when that jackass Chris Benoit walks out on me…but you’re busy doing an interview with Gene Okerlund, telling him you’re coming after my world title! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU PLAYING AT RANDY? I want answers, I WANT THEM NOW!” [A+]
– “Woah woah woah, chill out there buddy. Hey Lita honey, how you doing? Okay Edge…you want answers? Let me answer all your questions with one simple sentence….I’m Randy Orton. Is that enough for you? I do what I want, when I want, and no-one, not even you, the WCW World Champion, can stop me. Do you understand that?” “All I understand is that you are one cocky bastard who needs that condasending smile wiped off his face, and you know what? I might just be the one that does that.” Orton continues to smile, then asks “Hey Edge….you know, I was thinking, you’re world champion aren’t you? You’re the WCW World Champion, and a former WWE Champion? While you’re still relatively young….wouldn’t you…wouldn’t you agree that you’re somewhat of a…LEGEND…in this business?” Edge throws the microphone down and gets right in Ortons face, the two staring down, shit-talking each other….. [A]
– ….and Bret Harts music plays! Oh boy! “Geez boys, what am I interrupting here? Need I remind you, that the both of you are actually in a tag team match at Souled Out this Sunday, against Sting and a mystery partner? Oh, and have I told you boys the good news yet? I decided that if either you, Edge, or you, Randy Orton, get pinned or submit….the person who beats you…yeah, they win the world title! How does that sound?” Edge looks furious, while Orton has a non-commital look on his face. [A+]
– “And if that’s not enough…Orton, you seem to like your legends huh? You seem to like to live this legend killer gimmick?

People are wondering, why, when I have a beautiful girlfriend like Torrie, that I’m spending my time stalking someone like CM Punk? I mean, since Nitro started, I’ve been on his ass every show haven’t I? Well, let me explain. Ever since I signed for WCW, all I heard was about how CM Punk was going to be the next star. Hell, before I even signed for WCW, all people could talk about was CM Punk. So I get here, and all I hear is that CM Punk has the looks, he has the skills, he has the charisma, he has the talent, bla bla bla. I hear the announcers talk him up, I even sit back and watch Bret Hart give him title shot after title shot. You want to know why I am on CM Punks ass 24/7? I’ll tell you why…BECAUSE I AM JEALOUS!!! Do you understand that? I’m 8 times the wrestler CM Punk is, I have more experience, more skill, more talent in my little pinky finger than that straight-edge wannabee has in his whole body, yet I have to beg, whine and fight to even get a match on Nitro, never mind a title shot. All my life, I’ve been overlooked…why? Why is everyone overlooking me? From WCW to WWE, no-one wanted to give me the ball! So my plan is simple, I want to take out CM Punk, then everyone will see that I am the REAL star of this promotion, and give me the credit I deserve!” [C-]
– CM Punk comes out at this stage. “Uh…yeah. Okay. People may talk about how great I am….but that’s because I am great! My mom thinks so anyway! Look Kidman, you just have to go with what you’ve got. I’ve got a lot of expectations to live up to, and am trying my damndest, but you’re that little thorn in my paw, trying to cause me pain and suffering, and get in my way. I’ve been trying to just ignore you, but it’s got to the stage where…where…hell Kidman, where I’m going to have to beat you so bad you’ll never get in my way again. So it’s me vs you at Souled Out, and just for fun, lets make it an ambulance match…..because after I’m done with you, you’ll need to be in one anyway.” [C-]

– The arena goes dark, and then some flashing lights appear. A voice is heard. “Goldberg…in six days….at Souled Out….you will feel the wrath…the anger…the pain….Goldberg…in six days, your career is over, your life is over….you….are……over.” The lights go on to show a bewildered and furious Goldberg in the ring.

– Chris Benoit is backstage. He says that last week, the reason he didn’t want to get in the ring with Hogan is because he wants the big PPV payday, and that if he got in the ring with him last week there’d be no PPV Payday…because Hogan would be too injured to wrestle. But he will face him at Souled Out…and he will take great pleasure in retiring Hogan forever. “It’s not technically a retirement match Hogan…but I advise everyone who steps in the ring with me makes sure they have a retirement fund handy…just in case.” [A+]

And unfortunately, that was that.

I did not even come close to a year, and I had to pay the $1k. Although Vin enjoyed my reports so much he dropped it to $500 so that wasn’t too bad.

We’ll probably do this again, come TEW 2010.
