I only just realized that with next week being Tribute To The Troops and the week after that being New Years Eve this is the last Rabble for two weeks and of 2007! That’s weird.
Oh well – let’s get to Attributing Our Troops (See what I did there?):
JEFFREY – The Army
MIKE – The Navy
BILL – The Merchant Marines
HERNANDEZ – The Battle Of The Network Stars
JENNA – The American Gladiators
ERIC – An Army of One
…finally, me, your Mission Accomplished Incarnate, James Hatton.
Let’s not forget the proletariate that keeps us alive, the Insyders over at the Inside Pulse Forums!
So we start off with a flash to last week where Vince was taken down by Mick Foley, Stone Cold and Undertaker.
Girls in Santa’s Little Helper Outfits… Good fucking Christ. Jillian, Melina, Victoria, Layla. Holy crp. Layla and Jillian look the best somehow…
Now though, here come the good girls! Mickie, Maria, Michelle, and Kelly… ok many screenshots needed.
“Xanta Klaus?” – Jeffrey
Maria starting with Jiullian. Jillian screws up a snapmare. Maria does a cartwheel over Jillian and then does a split on her face.
“That was hot” – Mike
Tag to Kelly and a double hairpull sends Killy for the one count.
Tag to Layla, double clothesline on Kelly for two. Stompy Stompy Kelly tossed to the corner, Kelly rolls her up to for two.
Tag to Michelle, who looks the best for the good girl side of things. Layla gets tossed to the ropes and a fast tag to Melina. Hiptoss from Melina. Snapmare.
“Perfect would be proud.” – Mike
Michelle gets tossed to the ropes and she gets a snapkick in the back. Melina now hangs her up in the tree of.. ouch. Tag to Layla. A leapfrog squash onto Melina. Layla goes up for a moonsault annnnnnd WHIFF!
“Anyone hear the saline pop?” – Me
Michelle tag to Mickie, wearing satin chaps. Rana on Victoria. Neckbreaker from Mickie for two. Mickie kicks in the gut. goes for the DDT… HIGH HIGH end! Three.
In run all the girls and we have a girly girl cluster-f. All four girls send the badgirls to the center… and here comes Vince!??!?
WINNER: GOOD GIRLS
Vince is stumbling down to the ring… slowly… upset…
“Back like a dog.. or something.. whatever” – Bill
“Bark like a reindeer!” – Hernandez
All the girls clear out.
Vince grabs the mic and explains that he was celebrating the 15th anniversary when he was beaten and bathed in beer.
“Every Raw star…”
“…urinated on me.” – Me
Vince lambasts the fans for enjoying his anguish. Vince doesn’t understand it.
“I AM A HUMAN BEING!” – Me
“Elephant McMan?” – Bill
His feelings were hurt. He even SAYS ‘I am a human being.’
Cue Jeff Hardy?!
“Have a rainbow! BAMF! And he’s gone.” – Bill
Hardy faces Jeff in the ring. Vince tries to talk and Jeff takes the mic!?!?!?
Jeff wants to explain some things. He then compares Saddam Hussein to Vince McMahon to try and pimp the Tribute show next week…
In the end, Vince seems to start crying. He even goes and sits in the corner crying.
“Emo Vince sucks.” – Me
“What is he.. Raven?” – Eric
COMMERCIAL ONE – 9:16
Ok so Vince is still in the corner and Regal is sitting in the corner trying to coax him out.
“Come on Buttercup… cheer up!” – Me
This is all stopped by Triple H.
“Look here comes Mister Haitch, the father of your grandchild!” – Bill
“Wow, a match first.. then 30 minutes of bullshit. I hate wrestling.” – Mike
Trips of course gets a mic and asks ‘Liberace’ (Regal) to let him handle it, since he’s almost famous. He waves his hand in front of Vince’s face. ‘Can’t see me..’
“Mark the time, Vince McMahon has officially flipped.” – Trips
“9:21” – Mike
Trips sits down with him and wraps his arm around him. He says ‘Ok, I’ll be the bigger man. I’m sorry. Does that make it better? I’m sorry that I came out here and ruined your family portrait and made out with your daughter and poured beer all over your body while hanging out with your bastard-midget son… my bad Now, for the love of god.. leave the ring, before they cancel the show.”
Regal asks that Triple Haitch give him a modicum of compassion.. or so help him he’ll…..
Trips goes nose to nose with him..
“Eskimo Kisses.” – Bill
“..get security.” – Regal
So Vince grabs a mic. Tells Regal to get Coach. Regal and Coach versus… Triple H. He also ‘Hopes something bad happens tonight. I hope something bad happens to each and every one of you..’
“He’s going to blow up the ring.” – Jeffrey
“…the stadium.” – Eric
COMMERCIAL TWO – 9:26
COACH & REGAL vs. TRIPLE H
“From the 15th Anniversary to this…” – Eric
So Regal and Coach are in their suits. Coach gets knocked out, and Regal holds up for a punch or two. He gets tossed to the corner and eats a knee lift.
Regal rolls out and goes headfirst into the table. Coach tries to attack. He gets thrown into the stairs. Regal sets him on the turnbuckle and Regal hits him with a FIELDGOAL kick into the ringpost.. badass!
Coach goes for the pin.. denied.
Now Regal is holding up Trips and Coach is beating him down. FInally Regal sets him in the corner, and he charges and eats a boot. Now Hunter is going back and forth. Throws Hunter to the ropes and this is reversed with a kneelift from Hunter again.
Now while Coach is getting his asskicked. Regal heads outside and puts on the brassknucks! He runs in and eats the spinebuster. Coach though has the knucks now…
He looks up and Trips is standing right there, and he’s been caught with the knucks. He hands them right over to Triple H. Hunter clacks him on the head with them.
“Doesn’t he get DQ’d for bonking him on the head?” – Bill
“No, but Little Bunny FooFoo is pissed.” – Me
“HE’S A GOON! BUNNY FOO FOO IS A GOON, SIR!” – Bill

Throws Murdoch to the ropes and eats a face shot. He goes for the Alabama Slam on Murdoch and it’s stopped by Cade who grabs Holly. Big boot to the face and then doesn’t pin him!?
Weird spot, but the tag to Cade charges in and pins for two.

Ric tells us that walking away from wrestling isn’t even an option at this point.
“I don’t even know my real last name!” – Mike

“Cigarette Break!” – Hernandez
“YOu gonna take up smoking just because of Jericho?” – Jeffrey
“Yeah, a muffler.” – Hernandez
Jericho of course has a mic.
“Oh, and the cutest little eyebruise.” – Bill
He feels that last night that he beat Randy Orton, but he’s not happy about it because it was due to a DQ. We see the flash to JBL booting him.
So due to this, he’s invited JBL down to the ring, but since he’s coming down here.. he’ll have to go to Smackdown.
JBL appears on the Titantron.
“…sorry…” – Hernandez
“My bad.” – Me
JBL explains that he can’t be there to see Y2J.. he’s a Wall STreet darling. A media maven. Jericho shouldn’t have that kind of temerity.
“And they have lost half their audience with the use of ‘temerity’.” – Bill
Y2J explains that people around the ring get beaten down all the time. They then go on to make fun of the timekeeper, Mark Eaton, for a good minute.
“Sorry Mark, see ya next week.” – Bill as JBL
So Y2J is going to show up on Smackdown and surprise JBL when he leasts expects it.
“Except that he just told you.” – Tommy
So JBL throws down the threat, that if Jericho goes to Smackdown.. he wont’ be in the Royal Rumble.. he will never..ev..evvvv..evvver be a champion agaaaain.
Y2J asks “What happened to you JBL?”
“..back problems” – Bill
“I did some racist crap and almost lost everything.” – Jeffrey
Jericho then compares him to Bill O’Reilly, Shawn Hannity, Michael Cole, and Joey Styles. He then calls him a ‘wrestling afterthought.’ JBL’s face is awesomely disgusted.
JBL explains that he has to go out there and commentate and put over wrestlers that can’t even lace his boots. JBL promises Jericho that he is coming to Raw. He was the longest running Smackdown champion.. and he is and will always be a wrestling God.
BRILLIANT PROMO WORK!
COMMERCIAL SEVEN – 10:26
Santino Time….. MARIA! In something altogether different. Lacey and booty and.. good christ.
Oh, and Carlito!

“He’s no longer Amish.. so he lost his power.” – Eric
“You’re right, those vests have no buttons.” – Bill

So, here’s to a new year of Rabbling. Whether it is in a special show capacity or in a full every week affair, I wanted to make sure I thanked you all for letting us be one of the reasons you come to Inside Pulse.
Thanks again, and we’ll see you next year.
