JENNA – I’m guessing she was here last week…
HERNANDEZ – I’m SURE he was here last week…
BILL – He isn’t here yet… but he was here last week…
MIKE – He wasn’t here last week, and he’s not here yet..
And me, who was sleeping, James Hatton.
Also as always, the Inside Pulse Insyders – Join them!
Tonight we get a #1 Contenders Match. Orton vs. HBK.
Now though, HERE COMES THE MONEY! And Dani isn’t here… damnit. Ah well, he’s got the mic.
“McMahon, one of the most powerful and prestigious names – recognized all over the world.” – Shane
“You suck” – The Crowd
“Usually when that name is mentioned it is garnered with fear and respect. Over the last couple weeks, every time that name is mentioned the noise that has been heard has been laughter. People have been laughing at the fact as to what happened to my father at Wrestlemania.”
“Tonight is all about putting respect back into the McMahon family name. That’s what I plan on doing. Bobby Lashley front and center.”
“Brand extension disappears another little bit.” – Me
“5 minutes in and the brand extension walls are broken down!” – Insyder CapnMichaelMyers
Here comes Bobby Lashley, and he’s wearing a suit. Dani really is going to be upset. He’s no Dave, but hey, he’s wearing a suit. She marks for well dressed wrestlers.
Shane goes face to face with Lashley and says he’s going to take what he cares about.
“He’s going to shave his pubic hair.” – Me
“The one?” – Hernandez
So he’s going to put the title on the line.
“Why does it matter.. it’s just a toy.” – Hernandez
Shane vs. Lashley – and Shane is taller.
“I like the idea that Shane might win it and then realize he’s got the ECW title…” – Bill
Here comes Umaga-Ference. Shane though wants Umaga and Armando to go to the back so he can do it his way. He then bitchslaps Armando. Shane then goes nose to nose with Umaga.
“Shane vs. Umaga?!” – Me
“Shane’s the new monster?” – Hernandez
Shane doesn’t need Umaga to fight his battles, so he says. He’s going to give Lashley the beating of his life. Lashley wants to make it interesting though… if Shane loses, headshavings abound.
Shane does it his way… Lashley works for him.
“Since when?!” – Eric
So Shane agrees.
“Shane’s winning the ECW title!” – Eric
“That’s a step better than David Arquette… at least a little step.” – Hernandez
“Shane held the European title with heart.” – Mike
COMMERCIAL ONE – 9:10
Hey here comes Mickey James!
Mickie looks lovely!
“That’s the gear she wore in the indys” – Mike
“Ummm why are my love’s legs covered up??? Where’s her skirt???” – Insyder CapnMichaelMyers
Candice is wearing a latex buckley thing… nice.
Now here comes Victoria in a strappy thingy.
Finally, Melina in a standard white shiny thing.
“She looked like she was going to do the Dice Clay bit with the belt around the head.” – Me
“IT’S OVAH HEEEAH NOW!” – Hernandez
MICKIE JAMES & CANDICE MICHELLE vs. VICTORIA & MELINA
“Womens matches are just like the drum solo in the middle of InAGaddaDaVida…a good time to go take a piss.” – Insyder TriggyJBearytale
“I wanna lick Mickie’s belly.” Insyder CapnMichaelMyers
“Oddly I want to lick the small of her back.” – Insyder A Faceless Name
“I wanna lick her Ice Cream… mmmmmm….Ice Cream….” Insyder Chuckles
“I just want this over lickity split!” – Insyder TriggyJBearytale
“Oh I would lickity her split too” – Insyder A Faceless Name
Melina wants to start with Mickie… so as Mickie comes on in she gets blindsided. Melina eats some top turnbuckle though and a snapmare and sitting dropkick to Melina. She drags her to the corner and tags Candice.
Candice hits a double axe off the top turnbuckle then hits the armwringer.
“I’m twisting your arm because you stole my move.” – Mike
Throws Melina to the corner and then the splash. Finally Candice hits the half-tarantula.
“I smell tuna.” – Jenna
“What did you eat before you got here?” – Mike
Candice gets tossed to the outside and blindsided by Victoria. A quick tag to Victoria and Candice is rolled in for a two count. Vic slams her into the corner for the Tree of Woe. Snapkick from Melina.
“Why couldn’t we have this at Wrestlemania.” – Mike
Melina continues to beat on Candice with a few failed pin attempts. Tag to Victoria and she flips over the top rope to land on her ass as Candice rolls out of the way to the corner.
Tag to Mickie and now Mickie gets the big offensive on Victoria. Hits the hurricanrana right in the center. Stops the pin to go launch on Melina, but Victoria catches her and hits a solid reverse neckbreaker. Two count stopped by Melina.
Melina gets tossed out by Mickie. Victoria tries to fight back, but Mickie throws the high end DDT.
“Victoria took that awesome. I’d stick it in her butt.” – Mike
Pin and Win.
WINNERS: MICKIE & CANDICE
“I want Beth Phoenix back.” – Mike
“I want Naddie Neidhardt.” – Me
“They should tag together.. they have the same manly features.” – Mike

Make A Wish kid gets to meet the Highlanders. Gets to meet Maria… And a hug from Maria. Why the hell does that kid get to hug Maria.. he’ll be dead in a year. She is looking f*cking awesome.
“There was a kid?” – Hernandez
Ric and Carlito head to the ring… Ref lets Ric in.
“That’s how you know you’ve made it. The ref holds the ropes for you” – Mike
Carlito grabs the mic.
“We can’t take it anymore.. we’re not Nuggets!” – Mike
Carlito wants Ric to listen.. how Ric said he has no passion. It made Carlito very angry. The more he thought about it, the more he realized you don’t get a wake up call from a 16 Time World Champion. Take a look at the video package…..
We get a very hot Ric package from the Four Hoursemen DVD.
“25 Women just died because I just went… WOO!” – Ric
They show us Barry Windham.. he’s huge!
“The Wiowmaker!” – Me
So Carlito wants to win the match tonight to win a championship spot for the tag titles at Backlash.
Here comes Cade & Murdoch..
“Brooks & Dunn?” – Hernandez

“This is a highstakes match” – JR

“He just doesn’t like colored people.” – Mike

At Backlash. Cena versus Edge & Orton in a 2 on 1 Handicap match. He apologizes to HBK and … CAR CRASH
Here comes Mick!
“Toldja.” – Me
Mick informs Coach that the decision isn’t Coach’s to make. Coach does not make the big decision of the night. Mick doesn’t either. Not any wrestler here. The honorary GM of Raw. Here comes Michael Pena!
The Rabble at this point in time.. made a lot of dead child jokes. They’ve been kept out due to us all laughing too hard.
I would also at this moment like to establish that the Insyders over at the forums spent most of the show talking about how they would want to fornicate with Mickey James. We all have strange nights occasionally….
So Michael – what’s the new main event.
“I gotta pee..” – Hernandez
So he announces it’s a four-way and Shawn gives him a ‘Thaddaboy.’
COMMERCIAL TEN – 10:52
HERE COMES THE MONEY!!!!! HERE COMES THE MONEY!
“Yay. For Shane” – Dani (She showed up)
SHANE vs. LASHLEY
As a note it’s 10:57.
Bobby gets the apron and SPEAR FROM SHANE! Right to the outside. Lashley’s gonna charge him into the turnbuckle and Shane leaps out of the way…
Wow, hot little start. I miss Shane.
Lashley heads in and eats a baseball slide! Shane now goes punching the hell out of him. He three points him right into the stairs. He finally rolls Lashley in – bell rings. Pin for two.
Hits a fieldgoal kick or two. Holds Bobby in the corner with knees and punches. Finally Lashley grabs Shane and a fallaway slam and a clothesline. Back body drop!
“He threw him like a rag doll…” – Dani
“Living in a movie?” – Me
“Hot tramp.. is Shane Daddy’s little cutie?” – Dani
Shane goes and outright hits the ref and that’s that!
I guess Shane lost via DQ.
Now Umaga, Armando, and Vince run on down and the Umaga beatdown goes on with Lashley. Lashley eats the big splash. The butt bump.
As a note – Vince is in his awesome hat.
“Vince is so gangsta. When I see Vince in that hat, I just think ‘Where is CM Punk’s tommygun?'” – Insyder Soak1313
Vince on the outside grabs a chair. Shane’s got it….. He CLOCKS Bobby with it. Awesome chairshot.
Bobby’s cut open so at Backlash – Lashley vs. Vince vs. Shane vs. Umaga.
“He’s turning purple” – Dani
Lashley takes a thumb of doom.
What did the Rabble think?
“It was alright. The kid lived.” – Hernandez
“I kinda understand why Mike left.” – Bill
“It was ok to leave the house for an hour.” – Dani
“It was alright.” – Simon
“I actually don’t know how I feel about it.” – Jen
“Doesn’t it take you to put a hand on top of you to get pinned” – Eric
“Zzzzzzzz” – Kat
“I don’t know what Mike’s talking about.. it wasn’t THAT bad.” – Jeffrey
And what did I think. I actually thought the wrestling was pretty solid. Nice to see Shane again.
That’s that. See you next week.
