WWE Week In Review XXIII
October 5, 2008- October 11, 2008

Welcome to the twenty-third edition of the WWE Week In Review. As you can see, the Week In Review has undergone a "facelift" of sorts. Thanks to Chriscare & Boyo for the suggestions. Feel free to contact me on TWO or Wrestling 101 anytime with comments, questions, and anything in between. Also, check out my blog on Wrestling101.com.

The 11’th Annual WWE No Mercy came to you, live, from the Rose Garden in Portland, OR live on pay-per-view. Confirmed for the evening was Chris Jericho Vs. Shawn Michaels in a Ladder Match for the World Heavyweight Title. Triple H Vs. Jeff Hardy for the WWE Title. Matt Hardy Vs. Mark Henry for the ECW Title. Big Show Vs. The Undertaker in a Grudge Match. Kane Vs. Rey Mysterio in a match where if Rey lost, he had to unmask. Batista took on JBL to determine the new #1 Contender for the World Heavyweight Title and Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix defended her gold against Candice Michelle.


WWE No Mercy 2008
Good Week For: Triple H & Chris Jericho (Both Narrowly Retained Their Titles)
Bad Week For: JBL (Lost The #1 Contender’s Match & Got His Limo Jacked by Cryme Tyme)
It Will Be Interesting This Week For: Shawn Michaels (To See Where He Goes From Here)
Best Mic Work: Randy Orton

And In Other News…
-In the opening match for the ECW Championship, Matt Hardy retained his gold against former champion, Mark Henry.
-With the Women’s Championship on the line, Beth Phoenix overcame some mistakes by Santino Marella to retain against Candice Michelle.
-Rey Mysterio was able to keep his mask as he defeated Kane via disqualification.
-Batista defeated JBL to become the #1 Contender for the World Heavyweight Title.
-Big Show defeated The Undertaker by Knock-Out/Referee Stoppage following three straight rights to Undertaker.
-WWE Champion Triple H was able to counter a pinfall attempt by Jeff Hardy to retain.
-The main event of the evening saw a bloody Chris Jericho narrowly retain his World Heavyweight Title in a Ladder Match against Shawn Michaels.

The fallout from No Mercy was felt as RAW #802 rolled into the Key Arena in Seattle, WA. Confirmed was World Heavyweight Champion Chris Jericho being in charge of RAW and ECW Champion Matt Hardy teaming up with RAW’s Rey Mysterio to take on the team of RAW’s Kane & ECW’s Mark Henry.

Monday Night RAW
Good Week For: Batista (Kept His #1 Contender’s Spot & Will Get His Shot at Cyber Sunday)
Bad Week For: Chris Jericho (Despite His Best Efforts, Batista is still the #1 Contender)
It Will Be Interesting Next Week For: Johnny Knoxville (To See What Will Happen When He Appears on RAW)
Best Mic Work: Santino Marella

And In Other News…
-In the opener, Glamarella was able to defeat Jamie Noble & Mickie James in a Mixed Tag Match.
-World Tag Team Champion Ted DiBiase utilized Cody Rhodes & Manu to pick up the win over Kofi Kingston, despite CM Punk’s best attempts to foil any interference.
-The team of RAW’s Kane & ECW’s Mark Henry defeated ECW Champion Matt Hardy & RAW’s Rey Mysterio.
-In a No DQ Match announced by Jericho, Shawn Michaels wore out Lance Cade with a steel chair to pick up the win.
-Kelly Kelly rolled up Jillian for a win while Cryme Tyme and Miz & Morrison argued on commentary.
-Batista was able to retain his #1 Contender’s spot by overcoming the odds and defeating JBL, despite Chris Jericho serving as Special Referee & William Regal being the Guest Timekeeper. Batista was able to get the win after spearing both JBL & Jericho and Mike Adamle returned from his high profile meeting with Shane & Stephanie McMahon and sent a regular RAW Official to count the fall for Batista.
-After the match, RAW General Manager Mike Adamle announced that Chris Jericho will defend his World Heavyweight Title against Batista in three weeks at Cyber Sunday. The catch is is that there will be a special guest referee in that match and the WWE Fans will decide on- Randy Orton, Shawn Michaels, or Stone Cold Steve Austin.
-Also announced for Cyber Sunday was Santino Marella defending the Intercontinental Title against one of three former champions (the fans will decide which he will face) in Roddy Piper, Goldust, or The Honky Tonk Man.

The 122’nd edition of ECW on Sci-Fi came to you, live, from the Spokane Arena in Spokane, WA. Announced for the main event was RAW’s CM Punk & Kofi Kingston teaming with ECW’s Ricky Ortiz & Evan Bourne to take on RAW’s World Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase and ECW’s The Miz & John Morrison in an 8-Man Tag.



ECW
Good Week For: Mark Henry (Decimated both Jamie Noble & ECW Champion Matt Hardy)
Bad Week For: Jamie Noble (Lost his tag match on RAW and was demolished by Mark Henry on ECW)
It Will Be Interesting Next Week For: Mark Henry (To see if he gets another ECW Title opportunity)
Best Mic Work: Jamie Noble

And In Other News…
-The team of Finlay & Tommy Dreamer utilized interference by Finlay’s son, Hornswoggle to defeat the team of Mike Knox & Jack Swagger.
-Mark Henry squashed RAW’s Jamie Noble in a one-on-one contest. After the match, Mark Henry hit two World’s Strongest Slams on Noble. ECW Champion Matt Hardy came to the rescue, fighting Henry into a corner and then laying out Tony Atlas with a Twist of Fate. Mark Henry utilized the distraction by Atlas to decimate the champion with the World’s Strongest Slam and two big splashes.
-In the 8-Man Tag Team main event, World Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase and former WWE Tag Team Champions The Miz & John Morrison used the help of Manu to defeat the team of CM Punk, Kofi Kingston, The Miz, & John Morrison.

The 478’th edition of WWE SmackDown emanated from the Spokane Arena in Spokane, WA. Confirmed for the main event was Triple H Vs. Big Show for the WWE Championship.

Friday Night SmackDown
Good Week For: The Undertaker (Got Some Revenge On Big Show)
Bad Week For: MVP (Got Tricked into a Fght at No Mercy & Lost To Jeff Hardy in the Same Week)
It’ll Be Interesting Next Week For: Triple H (To See Who His Next Challenger Will Be)
Best Mic Work: Big Show

And In Other News…

-The main event of the evening saw WWE Champion Triple H & Big Show fight to a No Contest when The Undertaker appeared (Triple H retains).
-After the main event had ended, The Undertaker assaulted Big Show with right hands all the way backstage. Then Vladimir Kozlov made another appearance (after laying out Jeff Hardy earlier in the night) and laid out the WWE Champion. Jeff Hardy made the save for Triple H and the two of them rid the ring of the Moscow Mauler. Jeff then turned on Triple H with a Twist of Fate. Next week, Jeff Hardy will go one-on-one with the undefeated Vladimir Kozlov.

-After SmackDown, WWE.com announced that Triple H will defend his WWE Title at Cyber Sunday against either Jeff Hardy, Vladimir Kozlov, or both in a Triple Threat Match. Got to WWE.com for more information.Superstar of the Week: Triple H
