Roundtable results to start this week. The big winner was Blake Norton, who got everything correct, with the only exception being the Flair/Eddie match, which everyone picked Guerrero. The big losers were Lyrical Stunt’s Art Martinez, and…well, me, only getting 3 right each. I guess Vengeance is another chance…
Intro…We start out with all the Raw Superstars in the ring.
Vince comes down, says that it’s no secret that he is a success, and he will share the qualities with us why he is successful. The biggest being ruthless aggression. That is how he got the dominance he has in wrestling in North America. He asks who among them in the ring has the most ruthless aggression. There is only one person who is not out there who has that kind of ruthless aggression that it takes to make it in the company. He asks if that bothers RVD. He then gets in Bubba Ray’s face, blaming him for Eddie’s loss last night. He then makes a Bubba/Guerrero match. He then gets in Jeff Hardy’s face, and makes Jeff vs. UT tonight, with Matt barred from ringside. Wow, this is going to be good. Vince says that if none of them want to be here, then he doesn’t want them here. The NWO makes their presence known. HBK says that there is nobody better then the NWO. He then offers up his services to take out some of the trash in the ring. Booker gets on the mic, talks them down. He then challenges anyone of the NWO. McMahon says that it won’t be HBK or Nash, because Nash is still hurt, and when he gets better, he better live up to expectations, or he will join the unemployed line with Scott Hall. HAHA. Nash gives McMahon the finger. McMahon then makes a match with Booker and Goldust facing Big Show and X-Pac with Nash and HBK barred with ringside. Booker can dig that….SUCKAAAAAAAAAA. SPINAROONI!!!
Spike Dudley & Bradshaw vs. Chris Nowinski & William Regal
Bradshaw showing Nowinski what it’s really like to be a SuperStar. Spike in, Nowinski tosses him to the outside where Regal beats him up. Sign: “I Tutored Chris Nowinski” HAHA. Regal in, beats up Spike legally this time. Bradshaw in. Regal tosses Spike out, Bradshaw nails a clothesline from hell on Regal, then Nowinski rolls up Bradshaw with the tights to win.
Winners – Harvard & Regal
Vince tells Sgt. Slaughter that the fat needs to be cut, and has the Sarge to have Tommy Dreamer and Raven to have a match, the loser will never work on Raw again. Vince then goes in his office, and Tough Enough’s Jackie is waiting for him. She says she will win the Golden Thong award tomorrow night. Vince makes a match with Jackie along side Molly Holly against Linda and Trish Stratus. Jackie then takes off her robe to reveal a rather revealing outfit…nice! Undertaker comes in, scares Jackie away, and bitches about The Rock. He wants Rock tonight, but Vince says he has Jeff Hardy instead, and tells him to tear Jeff apart. UT says that he will do Vince a favor, since he is looking for new stars, he will make Jeff famous….the old fashion way.
WWE Rewind: Bubba helping Flair win last night.
Bubba Ray Dudley vs. Eddie Guerrero
Bubba sets up a table on the outside before Eddie even gets down to the ring. Quick match, Bubba goes for a BubbaBomb, but Eddie blocks it, rolls up Bubba for a pin.
Winner – Latino Heat
Eddie gets the table in the ring, but is taking way too long. Bubba is standing behind Eddie, without Eddie knowing. As soon as the table is set in the ring, Eddie turns around into Bubba’s foot, and he follows it with a powerbomb though the table…NICE! Benoit runs out, locks on a Crippler Crossface for a few minutes.

He says calls him a Giant HippoShowtumius or something. Then X-Pac comes out of the crapper, and GD calls him a bandana wearing Grease Rat. HAHA. Pac chases GD.
