Like the fact Eve defeated John Cena, now I know it was posted top of the page, but just using it to make a point it's a shock factor, the reason why Raw was & is still good is that Raw always does something that makes you want to watch it the following week.
That is what I'm going for when I read other BTB, yours is just that 100%. It's great to see so many great creative BTB posts & yours is always entertaining & makes me want to read more because you have the shock factor I was mentioning.
Looking awesome your wrestlemania if Raw & Smackdown is anything to go by.
WWE Friday Night SmackDown "Go Home Show" | March 23, 2012 from Newmark, New Jersey.
We get a video package of next Sunday's WrestleMania 28 event, it showcases many of the events from the past including the best matches, the best storylines and the moments that have happened on the grandest stage of them all. We then get a shot of The Rock and John Cena and there hype throughout the past few years in 2011 and 2012. The dream match will happen at WrestleMania 28 but who will walk out the winner?
We are welcomed to SmackDown by the usual team of Josh Matthews, Booker T and Michael Cole. They hype tonight's Go Home show for SmackDown, the last time SmackDown will be shown before WrestleMania 28 due to next Friday airing a WrestleMania AXXESS show. However tonight's main event promises to deliver as Randy Orton, WWE Champion CM Punk and Sheamus go against World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan, Chris Jericho and Wade Barrett.
The Miz opens up SmackDown's Go Home Show before WrestleMania 28. The Miz says that he needs to be in the main event he will not stop until he demands that the match between Punk and Jericho is turned into a Triple threat match. However Big Show comes out. Big Show says that he is in the Money in the Bank for one reason and that is to reclaim the World Heavyweight title. Miz then says that Big Show will never be WWE/or World Heavyweight Champion because he will be walking out a two time Money in the Bank winner. Christian comes down and proposes his claim to become a three time champion. Then we get Dolph Ziggler with Vickie Guerrero, Justin Gabriel. Mark Henry, Kofi Kingston, Alberto Del Rio and Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes all stating that they will win the match at WrestleMania 28. The segment ends with an all out brawl between the guys, however unlike Monday Night Kane isn't there. General Manager Theodore Long says tonight will feature a 10 Man Tag team match and that will be tonight, however for Raw is Kane even here tonight? Long says that match is happening right now.
Raw Money in the Bank competitors (Dolph Ziggler, Alberto Del Rio, The Miz, Kofi Kingston and Kane?) defeatedSmackDown Money in the Bank competitors (Big Show, Mark Henry, Justin Gabriel, Christian and Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes). Just a note, Kane didn't show up for the match, so it was basically a 4 on 5 Handicap match. The match was won by Ziggler after he got the pinfall on Big Show after Kane interfered in the match and choke slammed Big Show.
After the match some guys bought in Ladders as we had a full metal mayhem enviorment where guys were swining ladders and using them as surf boards and etc. lol.
Backstage Matt Striker interviews Randy Orton. Randy says that tonight he is looking forward to teaming with Sheamus and WWE Champion CM Punk against the other team of Jericho, Bryan and Barrett, he says that snake will eat its prey here tonight.
Divas Champion Beth Phoenix defeated Layla. In this one on one divas match which featured two good women's wrestlers, was a good one for the fans. Beth executed a huge back breaker in the early stages which went for a two and a half count however Layla countered several attempts from Beth at a Glam Slam. In the end Layla was going for her move the Lay Out (Direct Sternum Kick to the abdomen/Upper body) until Beth would counter and hit a clothesline and then execute the Glam Slam.
After the match Kharma's music hit as Beth exited the ring playing more mind games with Kharma. Kharma then picked up Layla and hit her for a Kharmageddon Implant Buster. Kharma sends a message to Beth Phoenix here tonight on SmackDown.
We see a video hyping WrestleMania 28 featuring The Rock, John Cena, Randy Orton, Undertaker, Triple H, Sheamus, Daniel Bryan, CM Punk, Big Show, Chris Jericho and more, don't miss it live in about a week's time only on pay per view.
The Undertaker comes down the entrance ramp as he grabs a microphone. Undertaker tells the fans that the time is coming, the time of the past era will be over and the time for Triple H will be coming to a end. Daniel Bryan, the World Heavyweight Champion interrupts the Deadman. Bryan says Taker's win last week was a fluke. Bryan gets major heat for this remark. Bryan says how could he lose to a 100 year old undead man. Undertaker then smirks and laughs as he says that he used to wrestle 300 pound behemoths and now we have a 195 pound nerd as World Heavyweight Champion. Bryan says that all the talking in the world could go back to back between the two however Bryan then says he is out for one reason and that is to make a name for himself. Bryan then attacks Undertaker until The Deadman grabs his hands on Bryan and unloads blows onto his body. Bryan however escapes as Undertaker rolls his eyes backwards. Triple H where ever he was should be paying attention that Undertaker can still go with even the youngest of Superstars.
The Uso's defeated Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks. Nice tag team bout as the Uso's get a much deserved victory here tonight as they have a big WWE Tag Team title match at WrestleMania 28.
After the match the champions Primo and Epico along with Rosa Mendes come out as they told that the Uso's should hang at ringside more longer to see how real champions win and wrestle.
Rey Mysterioand Sin Cara defeated WWE Tag Team Champions Primo and Epico (with Rosa Mendes) This match was good. The moves were all laid down and Cara's best work yet. The match began with a hard elbow time up however thoughout most of the match it was a good back and forth match. In the end Primo was going for the backstabber until Cara exeucted the La Mistica and Primo would trample into the second rope as Cara tagged in Mysterio who executed the 619.
After the match The Uso's would send a message by hitting a Samoan Drop and then a Superfly splash off the top turnbuckle on both Epico and Primo.
Backstage World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan is seeing A.J. as he yells at her for not saving him against Undertaker. A.J. starts crying a little as Bryan says that she is a distraction and that he is cutting ties with her tonight, because they are officially over and finished. A.J. cries and runs away as Bryan then meets eye to eye with Sheamus. The Great White tells him the World title is coming to Ireland.
We see General Manager of SmackDown Teddy Long with Aksana until John Laurinaitis walks in with David Otunga and says that there will be a contract signing between them on the next Raw SuperShow. Shaq the referee will also be there. Laurinaitis wished Teddy a good night, and a good final show before he takes over the reigns of SmackDown after WrestleMania 28.

She tells them that she can be intimidating at times however don't let her shape and look full anyone, she then says that she had to admit something and that was that she never gave birth to a baby child. The crowd is in shock as this was true. Kharma says she lied about giving birth, because her child was killed right after it was born. Kharma then says that she will dedicate the match at WrestleMania 28 against Beth Phoenix to her deceased child she says she will do it for child. Kelly Kelly, Alicia Fox, Tamina and a few others hug Kharma until the music of the Divas Champion Beth Phoenix is heard. Beth tells Kharma that she is actually quite sad for her because she had to lie, Beth says that lying doesn't get anyone anywhere and then Beth jokes how Kharma will lose and disapoint her child, she then says that oh wait Kharma has no child. Kharma then erupts as she starts crying tears as Beth starts to have an evil smirk on her face. The Divas calm down Kharma who is broken down, will she be able to be courageous as she faces Beth Phoenix at WrestleMania for the title.

PREDICTIONS CONTEST -
1. List all the winners.
2. The order in which the matches will go
3. Any matches that will be cut from the card?
4. Any face/heel turns?
6. What kind of attire will Rey Mysterio come out in?
7. What will John Cena's entrance be this year?
8. What are your thoughts of the overall card?
Hey guys the contest is up, just a quick note this will be the final show for this project... I loved it while it lasted however don't worry I'm sure to be back sooner this year. I just have other things to commit to so I leave you guys with one message... I will be back
I will be back but when I return though it will not be a current day Booker, after WrestleMania 28... I will have a month to plan the next best thing I have up my sleeve.
Had my eye on this thread for a while and I have been reading, I've just been very lazy with reviews and feedback, so I'm going to give my predictions for Wrestlemania. I will then review Wrestlemania and give my thoughts on the overall project as a whole.
John Cena vs. The Rock This should really only go one way, and it should go to John Cena. If we consider this the ultimate swan song for The Rock's career, then you would only have to presume that he would put someone over, despite looking very strong. However, if you aren't carrying on the project after Wrestlemania, then I would see why you might have The Rock win for the feel good moment, and you don't have to deal with the repurcussions of the, quite frankly, poor booking. But I think you're a sensivle enough guy to give the victory to Cena.
Triple H vs. The Undertaker
This is the easiest match of them all. In my opinion, The Streak should never be broken and even if it were to be broken, I don't think there could be a worse person to give that accolade to than HHH. So for that reason, I choose The Undertaker
CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho Punk has had a huge push this past year; but he still lacks that big Wrestlemania moment in his career. You could say Money In The Bank was, but it doesn't quite cut it for the next big guy for the company. A win over Jericho would be huge for Punk's career.
Teddy Long vs. John Laurinaitis Laurinatis is far more interesting. Teddy has been in the job for eight years, which is six years too many to be honest.
Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton vs. Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett Think how amazing D-Bry would look managing to overcome the odds once again over three of the premiere superstars in the whole world? He'd look a million dollars and would be very beneficial and could easily lead to a title unification match at Summerslam, or next year's mania. So Daniel Bryan, IMO.
Sin Cara vs. Rey Mysterio Old vs new? New should win, especially with how little time Rey has left in his tank. Cara is the future, as much as I don't like him and he deserves the victory over Mysterio here.
Money In The Bank It's close between Dolph and Cody, as they could go further with it. However, I feel that Cody has a lot more charisma and potential as a SUPERSTAR (rather than a wrestler) so he wouldn't need an elevation device such as the briefcase to be promoted to the main event. Whereas I think Dolph needs it a little bit more, to become a convincing main eventer
Beth Phoenix vs. Kharma The Divas divisionneeds a new light and Kharma is that new light. For that reason, she has to win, surely?
Primo and Epico vs. The Uso Brothers
The Usos most definitely deserve the championship, a very underrated team and this match could set the tone for the rest of the night. A hot opener with a very hard fought babyface win, liveining the crowd up.
The Uso Brothers
SUNDAY | APRIL 1, 2012 MIAMI, FLORIDA | SUN LIFE STADIUM ''Once In a Lifetime"
Prior to the event beginning we saw R&B singer Rihanna comes out as she was cheered by the crowd in attendance at WrestleMania 28. Rihanna opened the night singing "America the Beautiful" as after she had finished the Air force would come in as the Jets would fly over head in the Stadium. A huge number of US Navy and Army officers were in attendance as well, as the flag of the United States was raised onto the huge stage of WrestleMania 28.
A video package is aired prior to the event, it says that the following show is rated TVPG with some content of violent action and some inappropriate language. We then see a video package outlining the feuds heading into the event thus far. We open the packages with The Rock and John Cena, these two will settle their differences here tonight at WrestleMania 28, however who will end up being praised and who will lose everything? The Undertaker and Triple H will enter Hell just to end an era here tonight. Who is the best in the world? we will find out as CM Punk defends the WWE Championship against Chris Jericho. Who is the man to carry the World Heavyweight Championship next? is it Sheamus? is it Wade Barrett or is it Randy Orton, or will Daniel Bryan find out a way to still retaining his World Heavyweight Championship? And after tonight there will only be One General Manager in the WWE who will it be either John Laurinaitis or Teddy Long, Shaquille O'Neal will make sure that only one man reigns supreme for both shows here tonight.
"And now.... WWE ... presents the Entertainment Spectacular live from Miami's Sun Life Stadium... WrestleMania"

However then Rosa Mendes gets on the apron as 80,000 people boo her for interfering. Referee Ryan Tran is distracted by her however behind all the play we see Jimmy Uso tag in Jey as the two brothers work on Primo. In the end we see Jey hit a uppercut to Primo which sends him crashing down to the mat. Jimmy would take out Epico on the apron. Jey then launches Jimmy onto his shoulders as Jimmy hits a splash on top of his brother crashing down onto Primo. Referee Tran counts 1,2,3... We have new WWE Tag Team Champions.
Winners: The Uso's defeated Primo and Epico to become the new WWE Tag Team Champions at 7:51.

After the match was over both bodies could get up, both men were down. The crowd cheered on both as Cena got up. The Rock then couldn't stand the fact that Cena had won and had a dis-honored look in his eyes. The Rock then clutched his gut and would stand toe to toe with Cena as he had been defeated. John Cena was excited. The Rock then shook hands with Cena as the two gave the WWE Universe a stand out main event. The two are cheered by the Universe and the audience here at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida in a jam packed stadium with 83,453 people watching them and plus the entire world watching them as well. Michael Cole, Booker T, Jerry Lawler and Jim Ross farewell us from Miami. The Rock hugs his mother at ringside as Cena poses for the WWE Universe as the show fades to a black screen.

To the guys who checked this thread, thanks for all the feedback, this is the very first BTB that I have completed, my long term plan was to reach WrestleMania 28 and I did so thanks.
Love the huge return. Did not expect that whatsoever.
Pretty pumped that you're pushing the Uso's. I really like them as a team.
Enjoyed the Money in the Bank match, and glad at the winner. Also, your Undertaker/Triple H match was beautifully written, as was the Cena vs Rock match. No complaints here. Thoroughly enjoyable read, and I hope that you continue post WM.
