CHIKARA brings the 6th annual Young Lions Cup to Hellertown, PA!
Saturday's show opened with Frank Martin reminding the crowd of last weeks results and that the crowd would get the chance to pick the match that they wanted to be the weapons match. The crowd brought the weapons to the arena and they had chains, baseball bats, boards, crutches, belts etc. The crowd decided that they wanted to see “The Leprechauns” [Lethal/Lucky] and “The Natural Born Players” [Southside Brawler/Pimptacular] in the weapons match.

Tysin Starr beat Cyrus.
Justin Rhodes and Chris Fontaine beat Buzz Harley and Blade.
Bonecrusher beat Chris Fontaine.
Nick Grimes beat Cassanova Kid to win the JWS Cruiserweight belt.
Note: I was on vacation and was not at the show. I will be back Saturday night. Thanks to the individual (who wishes to remain anonymous) who sent these results in.
Out comes Commissioner Cheetum. He stated that based on Moore's performance last week, he would get a title shot against motley cruz tonight! Kilo came out furious, he said who did the new commissioner think he was giving a title shot to someone that doesn't deserve it, he said he helped pin masters and he should be the one to get the shot. Moore said that had it not been for him, Kilo would have tapped to the masterlock. Finally after the talking was over Kilo left the ring mad. The commish said the match was set for later.
The Sicilian Kid came out and said that he wanted to issue an open challenge for the night. Out of the back came two masked men, one named Deranged, the other named Mr. XOW and they jumped him. This brought out Tim Edwards, who said he knew he wasn’t supposed to be here but he was in the back and saw what was going on and couldn't just set back and let it happen. He said that he said he would be there for the Kid no matter what. This brought out the commissioner, who recognized the fact Tim was not a member of the NBW roster anymore, but he was the new commissioner and he was doing things his way, so for tonight Tim was re-instated!
The Kid/Tim Edwards def. Deranged/Mr. XOW.
The Commissioner was in the ring which prompted Mark Justice to come out. Mark said that he was glad Cheetum was the new man in town because he was friends with Jimmy Tidwell which meant Mark's job was secure, Cheetum said, yes it's secure...... if you can win your match tonight.
Mark Justice def. Josh Matthews after Tommy Redneck as himself interfered. After the match they were beating on Matthews until Chris Styles made the save. Cheetum said that since Redneck wanted to get involved then tonight both he and Mark would be fighting for the chance to stay in NBW, in a tag match against the “Sons of the South”. If they lose, the one who is pinned must be like XOW - outta here!
Kilo comes to the ring and said that apparently management wants to hold him down, even though he knows he can beat anyone in the back, even the special opponent he has tonight. This brought out "Dynamite" Seth Knight!Kilo def. Seth Knight. Kilo won by putting his feet on the ropes post match, Seth found out that kilo did that and wanted to know why, kilo said his feet on the ropes was an "accident" then shook Seth's hand.
After intermission Rick said there was a special interview coming up. Crazy Train came to the ring and the people were going nuts. He stated he never lost his belt and said he deserves a shot. Mark Justice came out and said he doesn't deserve anything, he said that he got hurt and ran away so he shouldn't have anything handed to him. Commissioner Cheetum stated that if Mark was still here next week, then it would be Crazy Train against Mark Justice!
“Sons of the South” [Josh Matthews/Chris Styles] def. Mark Justice/Tommy Redneck after pinning Redneck.
In the main event motley Cruz def Jeremy Moore after Kilo put Cruz on top of Moore. The finish to that match was after Moore attempted the ace crusher and Motley pushed him off and then a ref bump. As the ref and Moore was down, Motley picked up the belt and was gonna blast Moore, but Kilo ran out and went to give Motley a superkick but Motley ducked and he hit Moore. At this point Crazy Train was right behind him and he blasted Motley with the belt and left the ring. As kilo was leaving he stopped and thought for a second then he put Cruz on top of Moore for the 3.
100 in the crowd.

Unanswered Questions: Will Franky recover from his injury in time to defend the IWS Tag Team Title belts? What is Twiggy's Plan B if Franky can't defend the title with him? Will Samson ever wrestle against someone his size?
EXesS is known as one of Canada's best pure wrestlers, but over the last year and a half, he has started to build a reputation as a sadistic head-hunter. On Saturday, EXesS notched his sixth IWS star sent to the hospital when he kicked Eddy's eyebrow ring off his face, sending blood cascading down Eddy's face. The blood seemed to energize both Eddy and the IWS fans as Eddy rallied to give EXesS a reciprocal beating. Unfortunately, Eddy could not sustain his rally, losing strength as he lost blood, leading to EXesS trapping Eddy in a side triangle choke that forced more blood down Eddy's face and eventually forced Eddy to tap. After the match, the IWS fans saluted Eddy's courage, but he rejected their applause tearing into the fans for only getting excited at the sight of Eddy's blood.
IWS Trivia fans: EXesS has sent the following IWS stars to the Emergency room: Stefany Sinclair (broken rib), Max Boyer (concussion), Santino (broken nose), Jimmy K (dislocated molar), Shayne Hawke (fractured orbital bone) and finally Sexxxy Eddy (kicked eyebrow ring off face.)
In what can only be described as a match that turned the IWS upside-down, the generally loathed 2.0 found themselves cheered by the fans after a courageous and eventually victorious match against the Untouchables. Jagged found himself isolated and out-numbered by Dan Paysan and Jimmy Stone frustrating Shane Matthews and the fans, before Shane was finally able to make the save, winning the match eventually with a crushing chair shot to Jimmy Stone's head.
It is very easy to HATE the new Beef Wellington, but it would be a huge mistake to under-estimate him. Jimmy K gave a valiant effort, but was unableto overcome Beef's cunning and sadistic assault on his ribs, eventually forced to tap to Beef's body scissors submission variant.
After the match, Beef verbally attacked Jimmy K, "I know that they call you Jimmy K around here, but your real name is James Kraven and I just kicked your ass! Don't move, you piece of shit. You know what time I got here today? 3 PM. You know what time this worthless turd got here? 9:15. You have been in the IWS for about a year and you already were given a title shot and you didn't even show up to take it! I have been busting my ass in this company for 6 years, I ran this company! Do you know how many title shots that I have been given? NONE! Even when I was in charge!" At this point, I should probably mention that Beef does sort of have a point, except, well, actually Manny came out at this point and he said it better than I could. Beef's response to Manny coming out, "Isn't your ass supposed to be retired for the 15th fucking time?" Manny's reply, "You know what Beef, you're right. I'm a lousy wrestler. In fact, I have never actually trained to wrestle. I was so busy building the IWS into Canada's best wrestling promotion that I never took the time to do it. And I have been listening to you pissing and moaning for months and you know what? A lot of what you said is true! A lot of what you said is stuff that I wanted to say for years. But you know what I realized after Kevin Steen beat me at the Medley for the IWS Title? It doesn't matter if I insult these fans or I praise them, they still show up every single month. And yeah, you did run this company and put up with a bunch of shit. So did ten other guys in the back and you don't see them out here bitching. Maybe you should just grow up!" Beef challenged Manny to a wrestling match at the Medley, but Manny pointed out again that he was a lousy wrestler, and told Beef to pick a partner because at the Medley, Beef would face Manny in a *FANS BRING THE WEAPONS* match.
At this point, Sexxxy Eddy stormed the ring and attacked Manny from behind with a chair, appointing himself Beef's partner at the Medley. After Beef and Eddy left Manny beaten in the ring, Manny urged the fans to start getting creative with their weapons to give him something to get his revenge with.
I suppose that this is as good a place as to announce that the Medley show will be called Un F'N Sanctioned.
After months of ducking the Green Phantom, "Paranoid" Jake Matthews found himself forced to wrestle the IWS Hardcore Hero after the Phantom kidnapped Jake's wife and manager Lollipop, dragging her to the ring by a rope. This strategy brought the Phantom what he wanted, a match with Jake, but it nearly proved his undoing as Jake and Lollipop used the rope to ambush the Green Phantom on a number of occasions. In the end, the Phantom had to go deep into his bag of tricks, pulling out the Green Mist for the first time in years to blind Jake long enough for the Phantom to give him a Phantom Menace through a table for the win. The match also saw a sick spot where Jake hurled the Green Phantom upside-down into a pillar and dropped the Phantom on his head.
The main event was a great match that could have been won by either man. Pre-match speculation was that Max Boyer would concentrate his attack on Kevin Steen's surgically reconstructed knee (an injury that Kevin Steen originally suffered in 2001 when Max Boyer dove out of the way of an errant Steen drop-kick) but in fact Max Boyer concentrated his attack on Kevin Steen's left shoulder, keying in on the shoulder as soon as Max dodged a Kevin Steen dive that saw Steen's left shoulder collide with the ring post. Max had plenty of chances to win, and it was only a desperation super-kick to the jaw that gave Kevin Steen the victory. Max was unable to accept the moral victory of dominating the match however and snapped in an outburst of anger and poor sportsmanship that saw Kevin Steen unable to walk after Max's repeated chair shots to Kevin's vulnerable knee.
Our next show is a free show in downtown Montreal (details below). A perfect opportunity for wrestling fans of all ages to check out the IWS!

Corey Maclin and Jerry "The King" Lawler kicked off the show in the studio. Lawler said this is one of his all-time favorite shows ever of Memphis Championship Wrestling.
They advertise the Grand Slam event that's taking place at AutoZone Park on Saturday, July 26, immediately following the Redbirds game.
Encore presentation began with Kid Kash taking on Brian Christopher. Brian Christopher defeated Kid Kash, by disqualification, when Koko B. Ware attacked Christopher with his trusty stun gun. "Superstar" Bill Dundee ran in with a chair to make the save.
Interview with Kid Kash and Koko B. Ware. Koko asked Brian if he really wanted him to put his stun gun on a pole because when he found it in South Memphis, it was up in a tree. Koko said that he climbed the tree and went all the way up to the mountaintop and he seen the promise land. On his way down, Koko said that he seen a whole bunch of Brian Christophers, so he shoved it down their throats. What in the hell, Koko? That was ridiculously funny! I think Kid Kash was getting tickled, during the promo.
Bill Dundee and Brian Christopher interview. Very intense interview from Brian. He said that Koko's stun gun was a cattle prod and at Throwback 3, he was going to shove it up Koko's butt.
The Soultaker squashed Stan Lee
Jerry "The King" Lawler walked out for an interview. Corey and Jerry bicker back and forth. Jerry told Corey to think about everything that he has done, because he's going to come back out here and show the world, the kind of man that Corey Maclin really is.
Kevin White joined Corey Maclin at ringside to help commentate the next contest.
Johnny Dotson, Spider-Man, & The Lifeguards, Dustin & Scott Starr defeated Koko B. Ware, Shock, & Too Cool 2, Flex & Tim Grind.
Grand Slam at AutoZone Park-Saturday, July 26
Individual interviews by Ricky Morton, Robert Gibson, Steve Keirn, Stane Lane, and "The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart hyping up their big Throwback 3 matchup. It looked like Stan Lane was doing stand-up at a comedy club, during his interview, while Jimmy Hart was at Hulk Hogan's house on the set of Hogan Knows Best.
Jerry Lawler walked back out and showed the video that his private investigator shot while following Corey Maclin. This was a great video that featured a Corey Maclin look-a-like doing random things like stealing newspapers from a newspaper machine and then selling them on the corner. Then, Corey was spotted as he was smoking and drinking a 40 in the Oak Springs Church parking lot, waving back to the preacher before leaving. Then, Corey was taped pulling up at a local gas station, pumping gas, and taking off, without paying. Finally, Corey was caught on tape in his GMC Denali picking up a "lady friend" from the hood. Funny videos! The guy looked just like Corey. I wish it was on YouTube.
After the video, Corey stormed to the back. As Lawler was saying that Maclin was not going to make it to Throwback 3, Corey brought out the look-a-like and threw him in the ring. Jerry tried to make the save, but Corey punched him and proceeded to assault the imitator. Corey called him a phony and a local joke. Corey asked him who told him to do this. The guy answered that Jerry Lawler paid him $5,000 and then told Corey, he didn't mean to do it, Man!
Corey Maclin said that he has got a surprise for Jerry Lawler, as well. He announced that "The Fabulous" Jackie Fargo is live, via telephone, and will be coming to Throwback 3. Lawler came back out and interrupted Fargo with the two sharing their thoughts on each other.
Back in the studio, Corey Maclin and Jerry Lawler plug the Grand Slam event at AutoZone Park, that's taking place on Saturday, July 26.
Corey and Jerry announced that this is the last weekly wrestling show that's going to be filmed in this studio. Corey made it clear that this is not the last ever wrestling show. Jerry announced that there will be a couple of specials airing on CW30 leading up to the big AutoZone Park show. The CW30 crew will actually be filming at AutoZone Park. Lawler mentioned that SmackDown is moving and so is Memphis Championship Wrestling. They are not going to announce what station, right now, but Lawler added, that there is a possibility that they may be back on Saturday mornings at 11 o'clock, which is the historic time slot. They say that BIG things are in the future for Memphis Wrestling as the show came to an end.

As we all know, Guerrero, along with several other WWE wrestlers were named by Sports Illustrated to be given illegal steroids not in compliance with the company's drug testing policy. Guerrero received somatropin (Growth Hormone), nandrolone (anabolic steroid commonly known as Deca-Durabolin), and anastrozole (the drug used to prevent side effects such as "manboobs" during a steroid cycle) between April 2005 and May 2006 through Signature Pharmacy, an alleged illegal Internet drug distribution network. Because purchasing drugs through the Internet is in direct violation of WWE's Wellness policy, Guerrero was suspended.
Unlike the other WWE wrestlers busted in the Signature Pharmacy scandal last fall, they only sat out for 30 days, whereas Guerrero mysteriously sat on the sidelines for just a shade over 60 days. Guerrero was officially suspended on Thursday, August 30 and returned to action on November 3, 2007, which was a Saturday night SmackDown/ECW house show. That was the first scheduled WWE show a wrestler on a 60-day suspension from the August 30th suspensions would have been permitted to appear on. Apparently, Guerrero's first suspension quietly slipped under the radar some time ago and went unreported.
Back in July 2006, after a number of SmackDown stars went down with Wellness related issues the week before the Great American Bash pay-per-view, which caused havoc on the card, Vince McMahon made the decision to not pull future suspendees from television because he didn't want sudden suspensions to ruin his heavily-hyped pay-per-view cards. Instead, future suspensions called for wrestlers to miss a month's worth of downside pay, not to mention their pay-per-view bonus. Also, the suspendees would be pulled from all house shows for a 30-day period. The new rule allowed Randy Orton to wrestle Hulk Hogan at SummerSlam, who was suspended in August 2006 for a Wellness Policy violation (he failed for steroids). Last July, WWE reverted the policy to completely ban suspended talent from television as well in light of the aftermath following the Chris Benoit double-murder/suicide.
Raw starts now! Pyro~!
JR messed up and calls is the Pepsi Arena instead of the Pepsi Center. The Pepsi Arena used to be in Albany, NY but they sold the name rights last year so it's now called the Times Union Center. The Pepsi CENTER is where they were last night. He mentions that the show is sold out.
Vince McMahon is on the tron. Last week, Regal got what he deserved. But are we getting what we deserve? We deserve the action, the excitement and the drama. And we deserve appreciation. And he will show us appreciation. He has an idea. He wants ideas from our Superstars too. Before the show is over, he will show us appreciation even if it means he has to do something that's never been done before in the history of the WWE.
John Travolta and Nicolas Cage are here. Alternatively, Triple H is out. Shortly followed by Randy Orton. We've got the whole red carpet and podiums deal going on and JR and King put over the pair's Last Man Standing match from last October. Orton's new theme is actually a really good fit and for those that are still asking, it's called Voices and it's by Rev Theory, WWE's new favourite band (they did the Mania and One Night Stand theme and Ashley has appeared in one of their videos). I don't know whether it's the new music or the lack of championship gold, but Orton's posing again and I approve. T-Grish asks Orton what makes him think he can beat The Game on Sunday. Orton says that's typical. Why is it that people always downplay he is accomplishments. Fair counterpoint, Randall. How come no one can just say "Orton has beaten everyone there is to beat"? Sunday, the joke is over and the laughing will stop. Triple H says these people laugh at him because he's a… I don't know, they blanked it out. But Trips knows how good Orton is, more than Orton does. That's knowledge. That's why Orton always looks for the cheap way out. Every time he said how great he was, he looked like he was trying to convince himself. He sees Orton as a scared little boy in a man's world. If you want to be the best, you have to thrive on competition and you have to rise on the occasion. Orton wants a break. "You do not thrive on competition, Triple H." Someone becomes a threat, you either bring him close and make him your friend or you eliminate them. He uses Shawn Michaels as an example. He says Shawn can beat Triple H so Triple H keeps him close. Orton brings up Evolution now and it still could be, but Orton became the youngest champ in history and became a threat, so he tried to take Orton out. Trips says when Orton was in Evolution, all he and Ric did was make Orton realize he's potential. But once he got in the ocean, the sharks were his to deal with. When it comes to the WWE Championship… every man for himself. Trips says he's never going to walk away and it's the law of the jungle. Orton says at One Night Stand, he will prove once again that he is better than The Game. Triple H is pathetic and it'll e hard to say he's the best when Orton beats the hell out of him. They're nose to nose now and Orton will beat him until he can't get up and until Orton is the last man standing. Orton goes to leave. Trips has the mic and asks if that's it. He says the last word will happen this Sunday. It won't be spoken but it will be loud and clear. Either the Age of Orton continues or it'll be like the last seven months were all for nothing. At Last Man Standing, he will beat Orton within an inch of his life in the ring and leave him lying and walk to the back and when he does, the Age of Orton won't just be dead, it'll be like it never even existed. The Game leaves and they stare down.
At One Night Stand it'll be Beth Phoenix vs. Melina in an I Quit Match! Really? Wow.
Jillian Hall vs. Melina
Jillian says Melina has no chance at One Night Stand. Jillian spears Melina and hits some rights. Melina gets caught with a kick and Jillian sends her into the corner and nails a handspring elbow and a neckbreaker. Melina's right niippllee and breast was completely exposed and visible on live TV. Holy shit, the entire thing just popped out. 2 EXCLUSIVE pics at the link below. We get some hair-pulling now and a slam. Jillian chokes Melina in the ropes but Melina comes back with forearms and a quick 2 count. Jillian cuts her off but Melina comes back with a dropkick and a kick in the corner. Hair mare now, but Jillian kicks her in the head. Melina elbows out of a fireman's carry and rolls into a leg grapevine submission and Jillian taps.
Beth Phoenix stares Melina down from ringside.
In the back, Vince wants to hear Chris Jericho's idea. Chris suggests a Michaels/Jericho rematch tonight on Raw. Yes please! Vince makes the match! Jericho tells Vince his theme song needs some updated and gives it a rock edge. Cryme Tyme are here now. Hilarity ensues. They take away Regal's pictures for an auction, auction, yeah, yeah…
Brian Kendrick and Paul London vs. Cody Rhodes and Hardcore Holly
London and Rhodes start, lock-up, take over by Rhodes into a headlock. London eats a dropkick but tags out and Rhodes gets double teamed. Kendrick gets a crucifix roll-up for 2 and Kendrick goes hard into the turnbuckles now. Holy in and it's clubbering time. Kendrick fights back with forearms but runs into a clothesline that gets a 2 count. Rhodes comes off the top across the arm and then goes for a reverse bear hug. Gotta love that psychology. Kendrick elbows out but the Sliced Bread is countered, but Kendrick avoids a crossbody. Hot tag both sides and London knocks Holly down with a pair of dropkicks and gets a standing head scissors. London gets caught but sunset flips Holly for 2. A heel kick gets 2 more. Kendrick and Rhodes get dumped, London skins the cat but gets caught with the Alabama Slam for 3!
Winners: Cody Rhodes and Hardcore Holly
Ted DiBiase is here! He congratulates them but their days as champs are numbered. He brings out his so, Ted DiBiase. Wow, he looks more like an Orton. Ever since he was a kid, he wanted to become a champion. He says he will become a champion too because everybody's got a price, but he is simply priceless. I like it. But, doesn't he need a tag partner?
We get a video package of Cousin Sal getting some training from Rodney the Piper. Piper hits the shit out of him. "Yeah, I can see how this hurts." Jimmy Kimmel is here. Piper clubs Sal. Kimmel calls out moves that aren't really moves while Piper beats on Sal. Actually, it's quite funny stuff. Sal wants a nap, so Piper throws the sleeper on him. Sal is out, so Jimmy draws on him with marker and they go get something to eat.
Mickie James is with Vince. They talk ideas. JBL interrupts. JBL discredit's her idea of sending to Divas to schools because it's like an escort service. JBL wants to give away merchandise – specifically cuttings of the One Night Stand mat with Cena's blood on it. Apparently, Cena is not Mickie's boyfriend.
Some troops send messages to their family and stuff.
John Cena and Jeff Hardy vs. Umaga and JBL
Cena and JBL start… until JBL tags Umaga. They slug it out and Cena goes for an early FU but Umaga elbows out of it. Umaga hits some measured strikes and Cena is groggy early. Crowd is very much pro-Cena. Cena avoids a charge but gets caught with Umaga's wind-up urange, which gets 2 as we head to break. Back from the break Cena gets a hot tag and fires off on Umaga. The Twist of Fate is countered but Hardy avoids a charge but gets shoved to the floor from the top rope. JBL takes advantage on the floor. That's how he likes it. Back in and Umaga hits a big splash for 2. JBL in now and he puts a beating on Jeff with clubbing blows and knees to the gut. JBL sends Hardy into the corner with velocity and then applies an abdominal stretch, complete with random leg bending. Hardy makes it to the ropes as JBL lets go of the hold. Boot to the head now by JBL and that's followed up by an elbow drop for 2. Jeff fights back and hits the Whisper in the Wind out of nowhere! The ref starts a count up but Jeff makes a tag. Clothesline to JBL… protobomb! Umaga takes a shot. You can't see me! Five Knuckle Shuffle connects! Umaga nails Cena from behind and Jeff got a blind tag. He misses the Swanton and eats a Clothesline From Hell for 3!
Winners – Umaga and JBL
Mr. Kennedy vs. Carlito
Lock up and break. They talk trash and Carlito goes low. Carlito misses his springboard elbow but counters a Mic Check early and hits a swinging neckbreaker for 2. Carlito works Kennedy over by choking him in the ropes, hitting a snapmare and working a neck vice. Kennedy works his way to his feet but gets tossed down and covered for 2. Kennedy comes back with a roundhouse kick and a clothesline. Green Bay Plunge connects and gets a near fall. Facewash now by Kennedy is countered into a snap powerslam. Carlito wants the Backstabber but Kennedy avoids it, charges into a back eblow, but hits the Mic Check out of nowhere for the win!
Winner: Mr. Kennedy
Katie Lea Burchill is here. She's great. She is not amused by what happened to Regal last week, and now Kennedy has an enemy. Paul Burchill strikes from behind and hits a neckbreaker. Burchill says Regal was a great man. Alright mate, he's not dead. Burchill finishes him off with a Curb Stomp.
Trevor Murdoch sings Vince's theme song to McMahon. Vince doesn't like it, but tells Murdoch to get everyone out into the arena after the next match.
Lawler and Ross hype One Night Stand.

We get Memorial Day shout outs.
Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Michaels
I wait 5 years for a rematch, and then two come along at once. Go figure. Can Jericho get a win anytime soon, please? They circle and go into a collar and elbow tie-up. They work a couple of counterholds and side headlock takeovers and stand off to cheers for both men. Michaels goes to the arm but Jericho counters and gains control of Shawn's limb and wrenches it. Shawn gets a hip toss now but runs into a hard elbow from Jericho and that's going to sting. Jericho tries a springboard dropkick to the apron but Shawn avoids it and Jericho crashes and burns on the floor as we go to break. Back from the break, and Jericho has Shawn in a chinlock with a half nelson. Shawn elbows his way to separation and hits some chops, blocks a hip toss and catches Jericho with a backslide for 2. Both men up and Jericho hits a step-up enzuigiri for 2. Into the corner now and Jericho gets a couple of shoulder thrusts and the referee is all over Jericho here. Y2J chokes HBK out with a boot in the corner. Shawn counters Jericho's version of a bulldog by forcing him into the turnbuckles. Inverted atomic drop now by Shawn, followed up the flying forearm… KIP UP! Jericho catches and tires for the Walls but Shawn counters to a small package for 2. Both up and Jericho levels Shawn with a clothesline, but the Lionsault misses. Shawn up top… elbow drop misses! Jericho is poised and wants the Codebreaker I think, but Shawn blocks it by holding on to the top. The band us tuning up ever so slight, Jericho ducks the kick has there's the WALLS OF JERICHO! It's locked in and Shawn crawls towards the ropes… and he has it. Jericho eventually breaks the hold. He puts the boots to Shawn and gets pulled away by the ref… Shawn feigns a kick and Jericho dodges it, and kicks Shawn out to the floor. Jericho locks the WALLS OF JERICHO in on the floor! The ref is counts both men out and that's bull.
Jericho continues the assault on the floor and reapplies the Walls. Jericho has a chair and wants to hit Michaels with it… but doesn't. Jericho offers a hand to pull Shawn up and Shawn takes it eventually. Jericho throws the chair down and walks away.
Vince walks to the ring... Vince says earlier he had an idea.... He says he thinks they deserve 'new'. He announces a draft in FOUR WEEKS. He says that's not all. He says he's not sure about all the details yet... but he says it's all about the money. He says each week, he is going to give away cash money. He says a thousand each week... what about $10K each week. Hell, why not $100K each week. He says it's not a hoax and it's from his own account. He says each week on RAW he's giving away cash money... the sum of ONE MILLION DOLLARS EVERY WEEK ON RAW. RAW ends.
According to local media reports earlier this month, Helms was in the midst of an argument with one of Narron's friends over a pool game when Narron "balled his fist" and struck the former WWE Cruiserweight champion. A scuffle did ensue but was quickly broken up. Narron was released after posting $500 bond. Lt. Keith Powell told the Raleigh News & Observer at the time that Helms was not arrested because he "did not strike back."
