May Week 4, Year 3

The King of the Ring tournament will begin this week. Eight wrestlers from each show will participate.

Match 1. Christian vs. Regal vs. RVD vs. Shelton
These four did not hesitate to bring in weapons. There was a ladder, sledgehammer, guitar, chair, ladder and a crutch in the ring. At about 3:30, RVD hit Shelton with the Rolling Thunder. Two minutes later, Shelton returned the favor as he hit RVD with a t-bone suplex. He then went for Paydirt, but RVD blocked it. Regal landed a double underhook power bomb on Van Dam. Christian hit Shelton with a reverse neck breaker and won.

Match 2. KotR qualify - Jeff Hardy vs. Booker T
Booker was dominating the high-flying half of the Hardys. He rocked Jeff with a super kick to the jaw outside of the ring. They went back into the ring and Booker landed the scissors kick. Jeff fought back and hit Booker with the Twist of Fate and won to move on to the next round.

After the match, Batista attacked Jeff with a lead pipe.

Match 3. KotR qualify - Matt Hardy vs. Mark Henry
Can we see Hardy vs. Hardy in the second round? Henry went for a power bomb, but Matt reversed it into a DDT. Henry wasn't pleased as he lifted Matt up by the neck and slammed him down. He then lifted Matt over his head let him go. Henry finished it with the World's Strongest Slam.

Main Event. TLC - Steiner vs. Goldberg
This is a non-title rematch from last night. Jericho was in the front row, holding a ticket. This match went almost 12 minutes. It was a lot better than their PPV match. Steiner hit a side belly-to-belly on Goldberg. Goldberg got up and went for the briefcase. Steiner pushed the ladder and down went Goldberg. Steiner threw Goldberg over his head with a belly-to-belly and put him through a table. After a couple more belly-to-belly suplexes, Steiner climbed the ladder and won.

After the match, Batista and Orton appeared on stage. Batista signaled that he wants a shot at Steiner. 

Match 1. KotR qualify - John Cena vs. Mr. Kennedy
These two went back and forth in the first few minutes. Kennedy hit the rolling senton and then the Mic Check. Cena busted Kennedy open with a chair shot the the head. Cena landed the AA and won.

Match 2. KotR qualify - Rey Mysterio vs. Big Show
Good luck, Rey. You're going to need it. Rey hit a crucifix and a sunset flip on Show. He had enough of that and lifted Rey over his head with ease. Kennedy was at ring side. After a leg drop over the chest of Rey, Show landed the WMD and won.

After the match, Rey was taken out on a stretcher.

Match 3. Hogan vs. Lesnar
Hogan was dominating the Next Big Thing. He landed a huge running powerslam. A couple of minutes later, Lesnar connected with the F5 outside of the ring. They made it back into the ring where Hogan hit the big boot and leg drop. He then hit his "Hulking" right hands. Lesnar would not stay down so Hogan brought in a chair and planted Lesnar's head on it with a DDT. After a clothesline in the corner, Hogan scored the 3 count.

After the match, Hogan extended his arm for a handshake, but Lesnar slapped it away.

Main Event. Taker vs. Angle
Before the match, Angle went to shake Taker's hand, but Angle kicked him in the gut. These two fought all over the ring. They used a garbage can, a mop and a table. Taker hit Angle with the Last Ride and a minute later, he hit the Tombstone. Taker went for the pin but Angle was able to kick out. Angle hit a heel kick and a overhead belly-to-belly. Taker came back and hit a huge full nelson slam. They went back to the outside where Taker landed another Tombstone to win.

After the match, Angle was taken away on a stretcher.

Recap: Rey and Angle are officially injured. Lesnar is now a face. Smackdown is running out of heels.
