Week In Review #26
http://www.wrestling101.com/101/newsitem/6532/

Welcome to the twenty-seventh edition of the WWE Week In Review. 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.

Just a reminder that tickets for WrestleMania XXV in Houston, TX go on sale this Saturday, November 8.

November 3 was host to a very special event in the annals of the WWE- the 800’th Episode Celebration of WWE Monday Night RAW. Confirmed for the 3-Hour Extravaganza was a special appearance by Shane & Stephanie McMahon to answer Randy Orton’s ultimatum of either he goes or RAW General Manager Mike Adamle goes. D-Generation X would also reunited to combat The Miz & John Morrison. In the main event of the evening, World Heavyweight Champion Batista would defend his title against former champion Chris Jericho in a Steel Cage Match.

Monday Night RAW
Good Week For: Chris Jericho (Regained the World Title Just Eight Days After Losing It)
Bad Week For: Batista (Lost the World Title Just Eight Days After Winning It)
It Will Be Interesting Next Week For: Batista (To See When He Gets His Rematch)
Best Mic Work: Shane McMahon

And In Other News…
-The opening match of the night saw The Hardys reunite to defeat SmackDown’s MVP & The Brian Kendrick.
-In an 8-Man Battle Royal to determine the #1 Contender for the Intercontinental Title, William Regal defeated JTG, Shad, Cody Rhodes, Ted DiBiase, Manu, Jamie Noble, & Snitsky to earn the opportunity to face Santino Marella for the Intercontinental Title in Regal’s home country of England next week on RAW.
-SmackDown’s Moscow Mauler Vladimir Kozlov destroyed Bret "The Hitman" Haas.
-In a special appearance by D-Generation X, the two veterans defeated The Miz & John Morrison.
-In the first ever 16-Diva Tag Match, the team of Beth Phoenix, Maryse, Natalya, Victoria, Layla, Lena, Jillian, & Katie Lea defeated the team of Mickie James, Michelle McCool, Kelly Kelly, Candice Michelle, Brie Bella, Eve, Tiffany, & 2008 WWE Hall of Famer Mae Young (yes, that Mae Young).
-In a huge shocker on RAW, the ultimatum set by Randy Orton to Shane & Stephanie was not answered by Shane & Stephanie, but rather by RAW General Manager Mike Adamle as Adamle resigned as RAW’s General Manager. In another huge announcement, Shane McMahon announced that Randy Orton would make his return to in-ring competition on RAW and face a man that was cost the World Heavyweight Title by Orton- CM Punk. Punk picked up the win via disqualification after Ted DiBiase assaulted CM Punk. Randy Orton did not take kindly to this at all and gave his signature punt to the head of Ted DiBiase.
-In another huge match set up by Shane McMahon, The Undertaker defeated JBL after JBL intentionally got himself counted out. As JBL tried to exit, Shawn Michaels threw JBL back into the Lion’s Den and JBL got planted with a Tombstone by The Phenom.
-In tag team action, RAW’s Kane & ECW’s Mark Henry defeated the team of RAW’s Rey Mysterio and one-half of the World Tag Team Champions- Kofi Kingston. After the match, Kane attempted to assault Rey, but an unlikely assist came from The Punjabi Playboy- The Great Khali. Khali was not on RAW to have fun as he chopped Kane and assisted Rey in laying out The World’s Strongest Man Mark Henry. Has Rey found himself a new, giant upperhand against Kane?
-It was then time for the main event of the evening, the Steel Cage Match for the World Heavyweight Title. In a move that no one could have expected, Chris Jericho was able to defeat the champion, Batista by escaping the cage to regain his World Heavyweight Title just eight days after losing it.
-In yet another announcement, Shane McMahon announced that the World Heavyweight Title will be defended against the returning John Cena at Survivor Series.

The 126’th edition of ECW on Sci-Fi came to you from the Amway Arena in Orlando, FL. Confirmed for the evening was an appearance by ECW Champion Matt Hardy opening the show.

ECW
Good Week For: Finlay (Won #1 Contender’s Match for ECW Title)
Bad Week For: Mark Henry (Lost Another Opportunity at ECW Title Match)
It Will Be Interesting Next Week For: Matt Hardy & Finlay (To See Who Emerges As ECW Champion)
Best Mic Work: Finlay

And In Other News…
-In the opening contest, ECW Champion Matt Hardy defeated Bam Neely in non-title action.
-Ricky Ortiz went 6-0 in the WWE with a win over Jon Davis.
-In the main event, Finlay used his son, Hornswoggle and a shillelagh to defeat Mark Henry to earn the right to challenge Matt Hardy for the ECW Title on next week’s ECW.

WWE.com announced on Tuesday that World Wrestling Entertainment has come to terms on the release of SmackDown Superstar Super Crazy (Real Name- Francisco Islas).  It was announced on Friday that World Wrestling Entertainment has come to terms on the release of RAW Superstars Paul London & Chuck Palumbo.

The 482’nd edition of WWE SmackDown emanated from the Amway Arena in Orlando, FL. Two matches were confirmed for the evening- United States Champion Shelton Benjamin would defend his title against R-Truth and The Undefeated Moscow Mauler Vladimir Kozlov would take on The Undertaker and if Kozlov won, he would get a WWE Title Match at Survivor Series.

After the match, Victoria & Natalya were instrumental in revealing Brie Bella’s secret to victory as Victoria & Natalya pulled two "Bries" from under the ring, revealing that Brie Bella has a twin that has been helping her win her matches since debuting on SmackDown.
-In the main event, Vladimir Kozlov defeated The Undertaker by disqualification thanks to Jeff Hardy, who laid out Vladimir Kozlov and then assaulted Undertaker with a steel chair. The Undertaker sat up from the chair shot, but Jeff was long gone. Undertaker took his frustrations out on Vladimir Kozlov with a chokeslam.
