Friday 18th November 2011 – TD Garden. Boston, MA.
The pyro’s explode as Impact SmackDown’s opening video comes to a close and we’re Live in the TD Garden, home of the Stanley Cup Champions and home of the Doctor of Thuganomics, John Cena! Mike Tenay and Tazz bring us in to a ruckus audience and they tell that we have some star-studded matches lined up here tonight. “After the culmination of last week’s Impact SmackDown, tonight Tazz we have Why So Serious’ Monster Abyss going one-on-one with The People’s Champ, The Rock!” “Ahh my man, people say Triple H has a death wish in challenging the Dark Side at Survivor Series, but The Rock’s got it tough here tonight. Abyss ain’t no slouch and he’ll hurt ya in that squared circle.” “Also Tazz, in the home of the Doctor, John Cena will go head to head with Joker’s Playground participant, Chris Jericho. Plus, in the main event, Jeff ‘The Joker’ Hardy will pit his wits against another competitor in this Sunday’s Joker’s Playground match, he is the Big Red Masked Monster, the demonic Kane!” “Ahh, you know what Mike, TNA RAW had this big ol’ nostalgic type theme on Monday where they feared that the end may be near for the Red show and so they should, cos Team Blue’s winning this Sunday, but let me tell ya; Impact SmackDown is here to stay no matter what and with matches like these it’s no wonder our livelihoods are not on the line. We’re untouchable and Mike, I can’t wait for tonight’s show.”
♫Cult of Personality♫ «<click to play) hits and out comes the ever controversial CM Punk. Punk gets a huge ovation from the fans and he comes to the ring to grab a mic and then sit down cross-legged in the middle of the squared circle. Punk pauses before talking as the crowd chant his name ‘CM Punk!’ ‘CM Punk!’ ‘CM Punk!’ “Thank you, thank you. You know what Boston I’m excited as you are about tonight’s show and I’m absolutely stoked to be in The Joker’s Playground match at Survivor Series this Sunday. I finally get my main event spot and I finally have a chance at the World Heavyweight Championship. Chris Jericho’s in that match, The Joker’s the Champion and Kane’s in the Playground too, but you know what, whether it’s on the mic, at the announcers table, in the ring or on top of a cell, I am the best in the world and I’ll prove it by walking out as the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion this Sunday.” The fans cheer and chant Punk’s name again. Punk says that he’s not here for World Title matters and says that he wants to finish some unfinished business with a certain member of Why So Serious tonight. “Last week after I defeated The Joker, after I GTS’d the reigning World Champion, before my music even hit I was attacked and blindsided by Remy LeBeau.” The fans boo as Punk goes on to say that he did not appreciate Gambit’s attack “Taking a bow-staff and swinging it around to swipe my legs and torture me while I’m down, yeah that’s a very tough thing to do Gambit. How about you come out here and face me man to man?” Punk shuffles himself so he’s facing toward the stage and there’s no music or any sign that Gambit will answer Punk’s challenge. “Come on Cajun. You know I thought you had some balls. You left the comfort of the Wolfpac two years ago and you went all Thieves Guild with The Joker. (To the camera) That’s an X-Men analogy, look it up… but now I realize that you did that because you’re a coward. As a Tag Team Champion with The Joker and as a part of Why So Serious, none of you are accountable for anything. You’ve laid down in matches, you’ve caused havoc, stabbed your friends in the back, and all the while you’ve been banging Kelly Kelly, Maximizing her ‘talents’ and demanding her to be on her knees at your beckon call.”
The audience gasps ‘Ooohh’ as Punk goes on. “But wait, hold on a second, it’s just occurred to me; you must be jealous. When Kelly and I were in ECW, Remy, you were nowhere to be seen and yeah your little Jacksonville Shag dressed up as me. She not only did that for an ECW show, she did that in the bedroom, she did that at home and (we’re shown Kelly’s Maxim cover and her CM Punk dress-up on the titantron) Remy LeBeau, could it be that she screams out my name while you do the dirty all over her sullen face?”
♫Dominic’s Story♫ «<click to play) hits and we watch as Gambit marches down the ramp with his girlfriend Kelly Kelly in tow. The Cajun looks very angry and he removes his coat and slams it on the floor while walking. Kelly Kelly goes to hand him his bow-staff, but he doesn’t take it, this is about a man to man fight and we watch as Gambit slides into the ring to trade blows with CM Punk and the crowd can’t get enough. LeBeau and Punk trade heavy right hands back and forth and they scrap to the canvas, kicking and punching one another any which way they can. A referee comes down the ramp and Tenay proclaims that Ric Flair is sanctioning this match!
CM Punk vs. Gambit w/ Kelly Kelly
Gambit and Punk fight to ringside where LeBeau tries sending Punk toward the steel ring-post, but Punk counters and sends Remy into the barricade. Punk front suplexes him so that his legs hang into the front row, but as he climbs the ring apron we see Gambit wake up and stand to balance on the barricade. Punk jumps off the apron and Gambit leaps off the barricade and “Aaaaah!” yelps Mike Tenay as both men collide in mid-air with clotheslines and they land hard on the matting at ringside! The comms review replays as Tazz says “Oh my God Mike, what an impact!” “Tazz we’re learning that Gambit and Punk hate each other. There’s resentment and animosity there and if anybody thought that Punk was in cahoots with Why So Serious after his qualifying for The Joker’s Playground, they’re dead wrong.” “Ya hit the nail on the head there Mike. Man, I think Why So Serious want Punk in the Playground just to torture him. And this isn’t smart Mike, I mean, not for nothing but err, CM Punk’s got a TNA World Championship opportunity this Sunday. Calling Gambit out here in the means that he did for this fight to ensue, I mean don’t get me wrong, I love the action, but Punk, Punk’s not going to go into Survivor Series a hundred percent. If there’s one thing Gambit cares about it’s Kelly Kelly and he was out here like a shot once Punk poked fun at her Mike.” Both LeBeau and Punk eventually get back into the ring and we watch as Punk gets somewhat of the upper hand, and he covers, gets One, gets Two, but no, LeBeau kicks out. “No laying down tonight, Gambit wants to prove a point here and CM Punk’s out for a massive win. We find out the conclusion to this match right after this.”
Back from commercials the crowd are in a frenzy as Gambit has Punk down after administering Craps (Future Shock like Double Arm DDT), but he doesn’t go for a cover. He steps toward the ring apron to kneel down and kiss Kelly Kelly and now he takes his bow-staff. The referee stands in Gambit’s way, telling him to put the staff down, but then “Ohh my God!” screams Tenay as Punk’s back up and he levels Gambit right up side the head with a round house kick. “Good God Mike, Gambit may have a concussion after that one!” Both men are down as Punk used his last gasp bit of energy for the move. CM Punk is first up and he picks Gambit up for a possible GTS, but no, Gambit slides off Punk’s shoulders and attempts to pick up his staff. Punk though boots him upward before Irish whipping him into the corner. Kelly Kelly climbs the ring apron and we watch as the ref tells her to get down. CM Punk charges at Gambit to lift a high knee “right in the mush!” of LeBeau as Tenay says that a victory here after last week would lead to a huge momentum boost for Punk going into The Garden on Sunday, but *WHACK* an arena-echoing slap from Kelly Kelly smashes a red mark on Punk’s face and the referee calls for the bell.
Winner by way of Disqualification: CM Punk.
The fans boo the way in which the result has come about, but the fight isn’t over. Gambit tackles Punk to the canvas and rains down heavy right hands on him. Kelly Kelly comes into the ring and yells at Gambit to keep at it. Punk is resilient though and the slap from Kelly Kelly has just gotten him enraged. He turns Gambit over and clobbers him before standing up to a massive cheer from the audience as Punk picks up Kelly Kelly for a possible GTS! The fans chant and cheer as Tazz says “No way man, don’t do this Punk!” But Gambit’s up and he pulls Kelly by her legs to safety before running at Punk to take him down again. Referees and Security all pour out from the back and after Punk has a moment to break free, Gambit does too and both men end on their feet with ref’s and Security holding them apart. “Goodness Tazz, what a melee, what chaos.” “It’s Impact SmackDown baby and we just got started Mike hahaa.”
This past Monday night we were witness to the possible last ever TNA RAW. The X-Division Champion Evan Bourne revealed the teams for the 7-on-7 X-Division Survivor Series match. Matt Morgan and LAX teamed up against former World Elitists and Stone Cold Steve Austin got AJ Styles’ blood boiling before his upcoming match with John Cena this Sunday at Survivor Series. We also had an exclusive interview with Triple H’s wife Stephanie McMahon-Levesque and Christian Cage put forth an unprecedented challenge for Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle! Be sure to Read one of KWF Blogs’ most fantastic shows ever!

Backstage we’re with Impact SmackDown interviewer ‘Mean’ Gene Okerlund and he’s standing by with the Intercontinental Champion, ‘The Pope’ D’Angelo Dinero. Pope says that “It’s great to be in Boston Daddy, and I can’t wait to stick the Truth to R-Truth this Sunday at Survivor Series.” We hear R-Truth’s voice “Stick the Truth to me?” He comes onto the scene and squares up to Dinero. “Pope, if you have a brain cell in that clouded mind of yours you’d know that Survivor Series is an aptly named pay-per-view for what I’m gonna do to you this Sunday.” “Oh is that right?” “That’s right… Truth is, come Sunday, Survivor Series here at KWF Blogs it’s not gonna make any difference to me as to who wins the war between the GM’s. It’s not gonna make any difference to me, as to what happens between AJ Styles and John Cena. Come Sunday, I’m the new Intercontinental Champion and that’s a Truth dat you’re just gonna have to handle.” Pope smiles as ‘Mean’ Gene points the mic toward him. “You know something Daddy, Pope has no problem wit’ bringing Survivor Series early, and hell Pope will just give you a free shot. See Truth, you run your mouth and you have twice cost The Pope matches, but I don’t see no punches flying my way when we’re face to face.” Pope stands back and places his IC Title on the ground. He opens his arms and says “Come on, face to face, hit me. Come on Daddy, show me what you got, you think you can take my Belt? Come beat it off me.” R-Truth backs up and says “You’re crazy. Dumb as you look huh Pope. No, I’m winning the Belt on my terms and I’ll take it from you on Sunday.” Truth walks off. Pope leans to pick up his Belt, but Truth sprints back onto the scene and just as Pope stands up *BAM* a measured spinning calf kick right into the sunglasses of The Pope. Pope goes down holding his face as his shades seem to have shattered. ‘Mean’ Gene ushers Truth away as he shouts out “Get me a medic over here!” R-Truth seems pleased with his work and he ends “I told you, you gon’ get got and this Sunday, I’m taking your Intercontinental Title. Dat’s the Truth, the whole Truth and nothin’ but da Truth!”
Elsewhere backstage we see Team Impact SmackDown’s Captain, The Icon Sting. He’s walking the halls and he comes across Bill Goldberg. The two shake hands and share a manly hug as Sting goes on to ask Goldberg if he can suggest to Flair for him to be the fifth member of Team Blue for the war at Survivor Series. Goldberg says “No offense Stinger, but I’m not buying into all this from Flair and I don’t want to represent him at Survivor Series.” Sting says that it’s been billed as Team Hogan versus Team Flair, but it’s not that way at all. “It’s TNA RAW versus Impact SmackDown man. The GM’s barely even come into it. You saw Stone Cold do all the pep-talking on TNA RAW and you saw how RVD and Beer Money defeated the Wolfpac last week. Come on, let me put your name forward to Ric.” “No Sting. If Ric Flair wanted me a part of this thing then my name would have been near the top of the list. I don’t trust his intentions with the whole one show a week thing and at the end of the day Stinger, I work alone.” Sting nods as Goldberg walks off.
“Gosh, what a coup it would have been to have Bill Goldberg on Team Blue for Sunday huh Tazz?” “Ahh, Goldberg’s not a team player man and trust me I’d love for him to be on Team Blue, because in all honesty he could take on all of Team Red himself. I don’t know why he won’t let Sting put his name forward, but Mike, Flair hasn’t approached Goldberg himself and therefore his name is not on the top of the proverbial list. We’re set to find out the fifth member of Team Blue tonight. I hope it’s someone good man.” There’s a murmur from the audience as the crowd waits in anticipation of the next match… ♫If ya Smell, what The Rock, is cookin’!♫ «<click to play) Boston, Massachusetts goes absolutely nuts as The Great One himself makes his way to the ring. “Ladies and Gentlemen, this is Friday night Impact SmackDown and up next The Brahma Bull, the most electrifying man in all of literary sports entertainment will go one on one with Why So Serious’ Monster Abyss! Keep it here and thank you for reading KWF Blogs!”
The Rock vs. Abyss
Back from commercials The Rock paces back and forth as Abyss stands across the ring from him. The comms tell that these two ended last week in a fight, and they remind us that it was Abyss who cost The Rock an opportunity to be in a part of The Joker’s Playground match for the World Title. Tazz says that this should be one hell of a match. Tenay says that all of Why So Serious are unpredictable and since Abyss’ rebirth of his monstrous side, all he wants to do is hurt people, so perhaps the ‘wrestling’ factor won’t play a part at all because all the Monster wants to do is make sure The Rock isn’t walking tomorrow. Tazz argues that Abyss isn’t getting enough credit. “He’s been World Champion here in the KWF Mike, and he knows his way round the ring.” The match begins out pretty evenly as both men tie it up, but Abyss twice launches The Rock head over heels across the ring. Rock gets up after the second time and then instead of another tie-up he goes at Abyss with punches to the face. He hits two and the audience ‘Ohhh’ as Abyss just stands there. The Rock backs up and takes a running step toward Abyss for another punch, but Abyss grabs him by the throat! “Oh no, a chokeslam this early Tazz?!” Abyss attempts the move, as Tazz yelps “Wha-wha-wha-wha-whoop” because The Rock drops behind the Monster, turns him round, kicks him in the gut and *BAM* DDT! The Rock nips up and closes his eyes to take in the air as the millions and millions of Rock’s fans begin to smell what he’s cookin’. But just as Rock opens his eyes “Aaaahh!” screams Tenay again because Abyss is on his feet and he’s staring down at The Rock! Rock opens his eyes and almost jumps outta his boots! He steps backward and runs against the ropes to cross-body Abyss, but Abyss just catches him! *BAM* backbreaker! A devastating move and Abyss covers for One, Two – ohh and Rock kicks out. All of Rock’s momentum simply taken away by such a bone-crunching maneuver and now Abyss is on top as we go to commercials.
When we come back we see The Rock and Abyss going back and forth by the announcers table. The Rock bounces Abyss’ masked head off the table before rolling in and out of the ring to break the ref’s count. We’re shown replays of how The Rock managed to lock in a Sharpshooter on Abyss during the break, but The Monster powered out and the fight continued to ringside. The Rock batters Abyss at ringside before taking a sip of Tenay’s water bottle. He spits it out like spray in Abyss’ face and he then takes Mike Tenay’s headset off him to put it on. “Mike Tenay your water tastes like piss! On this fine night in the TD Garden, The Rock, one on one with The Monster and all Mike Tenay can do is pee in a bottle?!” Tenay mouths his innocents, as Rock continues “Shut your mouth. The Rock oughtta shine this bottle up real nice and shove it straight up your candy ass!” Tazz warns “Rock look out!” as Abyss clobbers him and clotheslines him over the announcers table, right into the commentators laps. The referee’s count is on Six as Abyss climbs onto the table and goes to pick Rock up. Both Tenay and Tazz have lost their headsets. We watch as Abyss grabs The Rock into chokeslam position, but The Rock elbows him in the head and he clutches The Monster for an almighty Rock Bottom! The TD Garden’s roof blows off as the announcer’s table implodes! The Rock with perhaps the biggest Rock Bottom of his life on Why So Serious Monster and Abyss is out, Abyss is down and barely moving. The Rock is cheered and urged on by the fans ‘Get up Rocky!’ we hear one of them say as the ref’s count is on Eight! The Rock picks himself up and stumbles a little, “Niiinnnnee!” counts the ref and The Rock reaches for the bottom rope before lifting himself onto the apron and under the rope and “Tennnn!” shouts the ref.
Winner by way of Count-Out: The Rock.
The Rock wins! The Rock wins and the crowd go nuts as the referee raises his hand. Tenay and Tazz try and get to their seats, but wait a while because Abyss is still there. What an end to the match, an enthralling battle ends with a table crushing Rock Bottom. A fantastic night for The People and The People’s Champion.
Back from commercials we hear that the comms are back to their jobs. In Ric Flair’s office we see Chris Jericho storm in. “Ric, Ric, me against John Cena tonight are you kidding me? I have a World Title match this Sunday!” Flair stands up and approaches Jericho. He tells him to calm down and says that Cena wanted to wrestle here in Boston. Jericho asks “Why? He doesn’t care about these parasitical fans.” “Exactly, and they don’t care about him, but John wants to piss them off! Take up Blog time and grind it into their faces that John Cena is the best thing out of Boston, not the Bruins, not the Red Sox, not no one else. Listen Chris, putting you in a match with him is genius. Trust me. It’s a sparring session. Look at it as a warm up for Sunday. Believe me, he’s not taking it seriously and neither should you.” Jericho is anxious but Flair tells him to relax. “Impact SmackDown’s showing what we’re made of tonight brother and so far we’ve had a DQ and a Count-Out. Go out there to wrestle the match, straight wrestling and then after the match you and Cena go your separate ways. Trust me, it’ll be a piece of cake.” Jericho: “Well, I suppose I know what I’m getting this way. Much better for me to face Cena than any of those Why So Serious freaks.” We hear a voice by the door “Freaks? You wanna re-word that Christopher?” The camera pans and we see Jeff ‘The Joker’ Hardy standing by the door frame with the TNA World Championship Belt over his shoulder. Jericho argues “What the hell do you want Hardy?!” The Joker steps into Flair’s office and politely asks Jericho to leave because he wants to talk to the GM. Jericho stands his ground but then Hardy opens his purple coat to tug on a string… the camera zooms in and there’s a bomb wired inside his coat. Flair urges The Joker to calm down and Jericho typically trash talks as he makes his exit. “You’re a nut job Jeff Hardy. Ever since you became The Joker your mind has been prone to destruction and that won’t fare well for you on Sunday.” Flair: “Chris, just go.” Joker: “Yeah Chris, get out…” Jericho slams the door behind him as Flair stutters. “Joker, what do you want? What are you doing here? I-is the bomb necessary?…” The Joker walks toward Flair’s desk and takes a seat in the Nature Boy’s chair. He asks Flair to sit down and so he does. There’s an eerie feel as Flair keeps his eyes locked on The Joker. “We’re not paying for that table.” Flair wonders what on earth Joker’s talking about. He has a puzzled look on his face. “The announcers table. The one Abyss just went through. That was Dwayne’s fault, not ours.” Flair shakes his head and raises his voice a little saying table costs are not an issue to him. Joker calmly adds “Hospital bills. We’re not paying for those either.” Flair: “What are you talking about?” Joker: “Sunday at Survivor Series. People won’t leave my Playground the same way they came in. Your boy err, Jericho, he won’t wake to see Monday morning.” Flair says that the state of the TNA World Championship has been at the back of his mind with all that’s been going on between the two brands. Joker says “The girls have been at the back of your mind too and you should know, Harley and Kelly, they’re the final team in the Women’s Four Corner Tag match.” Flair: “That’s fine, TNA RAW hasn’t put in another team and I know Mickie hasn’t got a partner, but sure, you want the Why So Serious girls in, they’re in.” Joker completely flips and slams his Belt on the desk before trashing all of Flair’s paperwork left to right. He picks up a photo frame and slams it against the wall before opening the GM’s laptop up and folding it over itself so that it snaps! Joker trashes the whole desk before slamming his arms over his Belt and yelling “That wasn’t a request!” Ric Flair looks baffled as he gulps and tries to sit a little more comfortably in his seat. The Joker sits back down, calm again. Ric Flair asks him what he wants from Sunday. “You and your faction, you’ve been causing havoc around here. Costing The Rock a World Title opportunity, setting up only the second ever Joker’s Playground. Why do you do it?” The Joker smiles and says that dangling the World Title like a carrot makes it much easier to cause chaos than it does on any other given day. “People fight over each other to get what they want. The Three Way Dances, they tested who wanted it the most and even though wrestler’s fought to be in my Playground for an opportunity at the World Title, what they don’t know is that in the grand scheme of things, their efforts to be in the Playground will result in their timely demise.” Flair mentions The Rock again and Joker says “People don’t understand us Ric. They look at Why So Serious and wonder why we do things in the way that we do. But recently we’ve had so many fans make noise for us, it came to our attention that we needed to remind them that we’re not to be cheered for. I mean, screwing The Rock out of a World Title opportunity, we were just reminding everyone that we’re the bad guys. All these people, they paint their faces like me, they carry around playing cards and even have blonde and red-headed blow-up dolls that look like Kelly and Harley. We don’t like all that fanfare Ric. We take no pleasure in their cheers for us, we just like it when they get excited because the house is set to go BOOM! Ha ha! Ha ha ha ha hah ahaahahhh hah ah ha ha ha ha.” The Joker stands up and tugs at the bomb string again. Flair stands up and asks him to calm down. The Joker walks around the table toward the door as we see Flair step back toward his seat and reach for his pocket. Joker shouts “Don’t touch your phone!” he then laughs hysterically before exiting and slamming the door shut.
At the remains of the announcers table Mike Tenay and Tazz have shocked looks on their faces. Tazz removes his shades and says that he can’t believe the psychotic depths that The Joker goes to just to piss people off and get under their skin. Tenay says that he’s fearing for his life knowing that The Joker has a bomb inside his coat. Tazz says that it’s probably not even a bomb, “could easily be a sandwich box for all we know. But thank God that Joker didn’t show Flair a disappearing pencil trick.” The comms turn it to ‘Mean’ Gene backstage. “Well ladies and gentlemen, what a night it’s been and I can tell you that The Pope is okay after that cheap shot by R-Truth earlier tonight. Joining me at this time KWF fans, would you please welcome the Divas Champion here on Impact SmackDown, Mickie James.” James looks in higher spirits than usual and she says that she’s happy to be in Boston. Gene tells that Harley Quinn and Kelly Kelly have just been confirmed for the Four Corner Women’s Tag match at Survivor Series. Mickie says that she’s looking forward to facing Kelly again and “Christy, or Harley as everyone else calls her, well she’s unproven, but I look forward to beating her ass as well.” We see Madison Rayne come onto the scene and she tells Mickie that “I should be your partner this Sunday.” Mickie pretends to consider it but then says no because a) she doesn’t trust Madison and b) she’s already got a partner “and my partner Madison, is a TNA RAW Knockout.”
Chris Jericho vs. John Cena
The bell rings and the two superstars lock it up. There’s a tiny pocket of the fans who cheer Cena, but the comms discuss Ric Flair’s revelation that John Cena wanted to wrestle here tonight not to perform for the fans, but to rub it in their faces that they have to put up with him. Tazz comments that people boo John Cena in the KWF all the time, but Cena’s got a huge match with AJ Styles coming up this Sunday, so he deserves a warm-up match if he wants one. The bout begins with a fair exchange, but while Jericho takes it easy, it seems like John Cena is a lot more rough than Jericho may have anticipated. Cena clotheslines Y2J over the top rope and as Jericho gets up he has a confused look on his face. Cena backs up, giving the impression that he is wrestling this as a simple exhibition match. However, when Jericho tries getting back in the ring, Cena approaches, but Jericho sees him coming and he whiplashes the Doctor over the top rope. Cena slams back into the ring, but he’s quickly up and he meets Jericho by the apron. The two exchange right hands as Tazz says that this match certainly isn’t a ‘friendly’. Cena hooks Jericho for a suplex, but as he lifts him over, Jericho switches and slides behind to then roll Cena up and the ref counts. Jericho gets One, gets Two – no, only Two as this fascinating contest goes on. Jericho kicks at Cena a few times before hooking on a rear chinlock. Basic grounding by Jericho, but it’s effective as Cena’s is off his feet and so half his arsenal is compromised. The comms discuss what a victory for either man will do for their confidence here. Tenay says that for John Cena it would be monumental because it would clarify to himself in his own mind that he is twice the size of AJ Styles and he sure should be able to beat him. Tazz says that he doesn’t feel confidence makes a difference to either man. “They’ll both be up for Survivor Series Mike, it’s the 25th Survivor Series for Gods sakes. Don’t tell me that a loss here will have an effect for these guys on Sunday.” As the contest continues, Tenay says that Cena taking this match seriously is actually helping Chris Jericho to an extent. “Just think Tazz, Y2J is always trash talking, always fighting dirty. He’s been simply wrestling the match here and Cena’s been going all out. By thinking it’s a sparring session and then getting the better of a man going all out like John Cena, it does wonders for a wrestler’s mindset and who knows, come Sunday, if Jericho goes into The Joker’s Playground and sees nothing but wrestling his opponents, then maybe it will work in his favor and he may well win the World Title. Tazz tells of the opposite that no matter what Jericho does wrestling wise, it’s going to be steel chairs and all kinds of weapons that take him down. “You can get up from a suplex, but a chair your head will really mess you up.” The contest goes back and forth and after Cena kicks out of a Lionsault, this is when Jericho begins trash talking. We hear him yell at Cena that he’s supposed to stay down. He goes to pick Cena up, but the Doctor counters and in an instant he thumps Jericho right in the kisser! Action replays show the impact of the thump and back live we heard a chorus of boos as Cena finishes Jericho off with an FU.
Winner: John Cena.
♫So, You Think You’re Untouchable… Word Life!♫ «<click to play) Cena’s music hits and he shrugs his shoulders before picking up his trademark thick steel chain and then throwing a ‘You Can’t See Me’ taunt toward the audience. The crowd boo him out as the comms concur that without the trash talk Jericho was fine, but as soon as he went to his bickering ways, Cena leveled him with a closed fist and an FU put Jericho out for the count.
Backstage we’re with ‘Mean’ Gene once more and he’s standing by with ‘Black Machismo’ Jay Lethal. “Jay Lethal you defeated WCW Champion Jeff Jarrett in a non-Title match last week and this Sunday you’re teaming with a host of X-Division superstars in a match that may result in an opportunity for you to become the X-Division Champ.” In his Macho Man voice Lethal responds; “Well you know, the X-Div Title is a Belt I been after for a while yeah, but it being on TNA RAW don’t help matters oh no it doesn’t Gene. This Sunday though Black Machismo gets his chance yeah, and Gene you’re sporting a moustache, my beard is growin’ more and more, it’s Mo-vember and I become X-Division Champion at Survivor Serieeees! OooOOooOOhhhHHhhh YyyyyEeeAaaaAhhhh!” Lethal walks off talking to himself and we hear him say “Liz, you hangin’ round with Jarrett again? Getcho big behind back home girl!” Gene chuckles as he signs off and sends us to commercials.
When we return we watch as we hear ♫Wooooo!♫ «<click to play) and Impact SmackDown’s General Manager Ric Flair makes his way to the ring. The Nature Boy “Wooo!”’s all the way to the squared circle and he gets on mic. He says that the visit he had from The Joker earlier tonight was disturbing and “quite frankly I hope I never see that crazy clown again.” Flair goes on to ask Alberto Del-Rio to come to the ring. Del-Rio makes his entrance via a Ferrari and we watch as the sharply dressed Mexican aristocrat joins Ric Flair in the ring. Flair shakes his hand and goes on to say that he had many people in line, many who he thought about becoming fifth member on Team Impact SmackDown. “But Alberto, you are the one my man. I want you to be the fifth member of Team Blue and Del-Rio, as General Manager of Impact SmackDown I promise you a more destined future if and when Impact SmackDown is successful this Sunday.” The fans boo as Flair says he considered Big Show, Mark Henry, Randy Orton and even Kevin Nash, but Del-Rio was his top pick by far. The audience boo more as the comms point out that Goldberg’s name is not even mentioned. Del-Rio gets on mic to say that the people of Boston smell. He calls them ignorant and says that he’ll happily be a part of Team Impact SmackDown. Tazz is ecstatic for Del-Rio to complete the team, but Tenay wonders “What will Sting make of this?” “Sting has no say in it Mike, just like Austin doesn’t on the Red show. Wouldya keep up and support Del-Rio Tenay? He’s completing the team and I like it!”
We come to a video package that replays the interview shown this past Monday night on TNA RAW. The clip is shot in the home of Triple H. Jeremy Borash is sat in a leather chair, while Stephanie McMahon-Levesque and her three daughters are sat in a couch alongside. JB: “Stephanie, thank you for agreeing to this interview, I know this is a subject you’re having trouble talking about.” “Thanks JB. Yes it’s difficult, but I feel it’s maybe the only way to get through to their Daddy. What he’s about to put himself through if he’s watching.” JB reminds her and us that The Game is set to face both The Absolute Lashley and The UnderTaker in a two-on-one Handicap match this Sunday at Survivor Series, at his own request. He asks her how she felt when she first heard of his plans. She explains that she found out when we did, on TNA RAW. Hunter announced his plan to take on both members of The Dark Side in an effort to avenge the torment they have put him through during this past year. She says when this Dark Side obsession of Triple H’s started it brought back painful memories for her, of how she was abducted by The UnderTaker back in 1999. She also says she’s been pleading with him to change his mind, but it’s been no use. “It’s not exactly pillow talk, and truly, Hunter is unapproachable right now. I have begged him to think of the children. They themselves were abducted by a psychotic Brock Lesnar almost exactly a year ago on KWF Blogs JB. My husband was there then, the man I fell in love with. The Game won and got our family back together safe and sound. But Hunter, Paul, if The Dark Side prevail this Sunday then who knows what will happen. I don’t want to live my life in fear JB and my children, what’s going to happen if The UnderTaker is not satisfied with his work, what if they come after us? What are we going to do?” JB and Stephanie continue the interview as she tells that Triple H has gone off on a solitary training camp, and told her that the family won’t see him again until Survivor Series. Stephanie says she doesn’t know whether her husband has legitimately lost his mind, or if this is just something he ‘has’ to do, forsaking all others. “But rest assured JB, if he does go through with it, we’ll be cheering him on louder than anyone, hoping and praying that he comes through it with only superficial wounds.” Stephanie fights back the tears as JB signs off and hands her a tissue.
At ringside Tenay and Tazz build up to Survivor Series and reflect on Stephanie’s words. Tenay reminds us that The UnderTaker debuted at Survivor Series way back in 1990 and this Sunday, he and The Absolute Lashley may well make it the last night ever that we see Triple H wrestling in the squared circle. The comms talk up Survivor Series’ history, remembering the first ever pay-per-view in 1987 where Andre The Giant was the sole Survivor after a grueling 5-on-5. “Great Survivor Series’ since have included the Montreal Bret Hart Screw Job of 1997 Tazz and it’s fitting that we have Styles versus Cena coming up after The Doctor twice screwed AJ Styles out of the WWE Championship.” “Yeah Mike, the difference I guess is that it took Bret Hart a long time to get any closure on that matter, but AJ Styles can try get himself some vengeance this Sunday. I mean, not for nothing, but err, I don’t think Styles stands a chance. I’ve seen a lot of him on House Shows (regular WWE/TNA television programming) and I admit that he is Phenomenal, but I tend to agree with Cena. If you try a Pele on the Doctor AJ, he’ll catch you and F U up!” “In 1999, Triple H, Stone Cold and The Rock fought for the WWE Title in a Triple Threat match, but The Joker’s Playground this Sunday is a whole new level.” “Aaah, that’s right Mike. There’s a reason why The Joker’s Playground is only written here on KWF Blogs rather than actually played out in real life. The match consists of a Hell In A Cell structure with weapons dangling from the cage on the inside and flammable chains surrounding the cage on the outside. It’s from the deepest darkest corners of The Joker’s mind and in the Four Way this Sunday, no one is going to leave The Garden the same way they came in.” “Last year at KWF’s Survivor Series the world was shocked as Christian Cage cashed in Money In The Bank to become WWE Champion just seconds after Brock Lesnar had defeated Triple H in a hellacious No Holds Barred match. Now, from Madison Square Garden, the 25th annual Survivor Series is on the horizon, and it promises to be the biggest ever! Divas and Knockouts from both TNA RAW and Impact SmackDown will align and fight to determine the top duo in the Women’s locker room. Fourteen X-Division superstars will fight out for Evan Bourne’s Title. Tazz we’ve talked about AJ and Cena, we’ll see R-Truth get an opportunity at the Intercontinental Title and as well as The Game’s Handicap match and Anderson versus Barrett for the WWE Title, we’ll see the big one, perhaps the highest stakes match in Survivor Series history as Hulk Hogan’s Team TNA RAW take on our GM’s Team Impact SmackDown.” “Aaah Mike I can’t wait. You know there’s all this pressure on Team Red’s shoulder because if our guys win, then they’re gone, but I’m just lookin’ forward to a great match man. Impact SmackDown stays where it is no matter what. Don’t get me wrong, of course I want our guys to win, but as soon as the roster spills over, we’re going to have even more exciting times here on Friday nights. Man I love KWF Blogs!”
Jeff ‘The Joker’ Hardy w/ Christy ‘Harley Quinn’ Hemme vs. Kane
Thankfully for Boston, Hardy enters without his bomb-laced coat. The bell rings and Tazz says “A painted crazy man and a Masked Demon, well, that’s my nightmares all set for the next six months.” The Joker begins to clap. The fans don’t do it with him, but then he urges Christy to clap and she does and soon a pocket of the audience do begin to support the TNA World Heavyweight Champion. Tenay: “What goes on in that head of his? Earlier tonight he says that Why So Serious don’t like the fans, they don’t like the support they receive and now The Joker’s out here getting them going?” “The Joker is an enigma Mike. This guy could do a thousand things wrong, he could admit to them and never apologize and the crowd will still clap for him.” The match begins with The Joker running full speed at Kane, but an uppercut sends him to the mat. The fans certainly cheer this by Kane, and we watch as Hardy gets up to go at the Masked Demon with big right hands, but Kane is robotic, little affects him and he simply boot’s The Joker’s head off to send him to the canvas. Kane kneels over Hardy, gets One, Two, kick out. Kane gets up and leans against the ropes to attempt a leg drop, but Joker rolls out of the way. He pulls himself up by the ropes and Kane is also quickly up. Kane storms at Hardy with a clothesline, but Jeff pulls down the top rope and as Kane leans over it, The Joker manages to entangle Kane between the top and middle rope. “Good gosh Tazz, Kane is trapped!” The referee urges The Joker back, the painted leader of Why So Serious is relentless in doggedly punching Kane right over his mask, right into his terminator-like body. The fans now boo heavily as we see Harley Quinn arrogantly take a bow toward the fans as we head to our final commercials of the night.
When we return we’re shown replays that tell how Kane got out of the ropes. He booted The Joker down and flipped himself backward down to ringside. Harley Quinn then tiptoed toward the Big Red Machine, but with one death stare Harley backed off. This distraction was enough for The Joker to get up and back Live we watch as he springs off the bottom rope to dropkick Kane in the mask at ringside. Joker then taunts the old Hardy Boyz gun before flinging himself over the top rope and flying high onto Kane. Tenay says that he still can’t understand this from Hardy, but Tazz chuckles and says that he’s The Joker, he’s messing with everyone like he always does “and I’m tellin’ you Mike, he knows exactly what he’s doing.” “But why Tazz? Why plainly state that you hate everyone but your faction and then come out here and pose for them.” “Hey Mike, you’re askin’ me like I have answers, when you’re the Professor! Either go ask The Joker yourself or just sit there and ponder the meaning of the term, the faction and the anarchy that comes with WHY SO SERIOUS alright! God damn whining, for Christ sake, call the match or shut up wouldya?” The contest goes back in and out of the ring and then back in again. We watch as the match goes on we hear the fans split and then from only a few cheering The Joker on earlier, now at least 70% of the audience is backing him. At present though Kane is in control, but The Joker kicks out after every attempted pin. Joker is resilient and perhaps we’re seeing frustration boil in Kane. He sets up for a chokeslam, but Hardy counters, dropping behind him and then running against the ropes, but when Hardy comes back Kane nails him with a big boot! A cover; One! Two! – oh and a kick-out, Kane almost pinned the World Champion. Hardy takes a punishment from here on out and we watch as Christy Hemme does all she can to get the crowd going. They cheer and chant louder and louder yelling ‘Hardy!’ ‘Hardy!’ ‘Hardy!’ and Jeff Hardy pulls off the Whisper In The Wind. Both men are down, but Hardy doesn’t cover. He gets to his feet and looks toward Christy. This seems to be a sign and we watch as Hemme climbs the apron, all the while sliding the World Title toward the centre of the ring. The referee focuses on Christy and demands that she gets off the apron. The Joker takes his chance, goes to Kane as the Big Red Machine gets up and *WHAM* Twist Of Hate, right on the World Title! The fans boooo and Joker laughs as he throws the Belt out of the ring. He hooks both legs and steals himself the Three.
Winner: The Joker.
The audience boo like hell as The Joker exits the ring and he’s embraced by Harley Quinn. She laughs her head off and The Joker laughs too. He orders Harley to go get his Belt and the two of them then laugh off together up the ramp. Tenay mentions that the Jeff Hardy that the fans all know and love certainly is no more. “The Joker is the man, as you say Tazz, an enigma. There’s no split personality case or anything like that. Tonight we’ve seen the manipulative condescending ways of Why So Serious’ leader and it’s no wonder that all he and his faction bring to the KWF is chaos and anarchy.” “Yeah Mike, well err, in my mind Jeff ‘The Joker’ Hardy are all in one. You get the high flying entertaining, dancing old school Hardy Boy, but the face paint doesn’t lie. The guy’s a psycho and like it or not, he’s our TNA World Heavyweight Champion.” Tenay and Tazz sign off by reminding us to catch KWF Survivor Series this Sunday and Impact SmackDown fades out as Kane sits up in the ring.
