    Rey and Disco kick it off for their teams. Disco applies a rear waistlock on Rey and Misterio counters with Back Elbows to the side of his head, getting out of it. Rey runs to the ropes and hits a Tilt A Whirl Armdrag on Disco. Rey delivers kicks to Disco's legs soon as he gets up and attempts an irish whip but Disco reverses, sending Rey across the ring. Rey slides through Disco's legs though, standing up behind him and Rey jumps up on Disco's shoulders, performing a Victory Roll. Rey only gets two however.

    Rey kicks Disco in the gut and hits the ropes once again but Disco flings him up in the air with a pop up and lets Rey crash down on the mat stomach-first. Disco stomps the back of Rey's head before he stands him up and lifts Rey up in the air for a Delayed Vertical Suplex.

Karagias takes control of the match until he sends Rey to the corner and charges at him, only to receive a boot to the face in return. Rey charges over to his corner, tagging in Kidman. Kidman and Karagias have a back and forth battle until Evan tags out to Shannon Moore. Moore climbs onto the second turnbuckle and delivers a Diving Calf Kick to Kidman, knocking him down.

Rey gets distracted by Evan from the ring apron and Rey blasts both Evan & Disco in the face with forearms before he turns around into an Step Up Enziguri from Shannon. Shannon tags out to Evan. Evan heads up top and goes for a 450 Splash on Rey but Misterio rolls out of the way in time and Evan hits nothing but the mat.

    Rey steps out on the ring apron, waiting for Evan to get up. Rey jumps up on the top rope and hits a Springboard Seated Senton on Evan, picking his leg up for a pin. Both Shannon and Disco break up the pin together, leading Konnan and Kidman to charge into the ring and attack Shannon & Disco as the match breaks down. The Filthy Animals get the better of Disco and 3 Count. Kidman pops Rey up in the air and Rey extends both legs out in mid-air, catching Evan and Shannon with a dual Dropkick, knocking them both down at the same time. Disco is then on the receiving end of a Bronco Buster from Rey before he gets put down with The K-Factor from Konnan. Kidman follows by going up top and hitting a Shooting Star Press on Disco.

    Alex Wright pulls Billy Kidman out of the ring and throws him into the Steel Steps. Konnan climbs out of the ring and starts chasing Alex at ringside. Inside the ring, Rey Misterio sends Shannon over the top rope with a Back Body Drop to the outside and turns around to brag.

    Evan Karagias sneaks up behind Rey and rolls him up with a Schoolboy, holding his tights to steal the win.

    Winners: Disco Inferno and 3 Count (7.01)

    Post-Match: 3 Count celebrate in the aisle like they already have the Cruiserweight Tag Team Titles won and Alex Wright & Disco join the celebration in the aisle, high fiving Evan and Shannon as they gloat about their victory over The Filthy Animals. Konnan, Rey, Kidman and Tygress are all in the ring, looking disappointed especially with Rey having been pinned by Evan, giving the Cruiserweight Tag Team Champions a small taste of defeat, possibly losing their belts this Sunday to 3 Count.

    Local Bar: The camera cuts away from the arena to a local bar here in Denver, Colorado where The Sandman is seen drinking and smoking at the counter of the bar. The Sandman finishes up his drink and asks the bartender to pour him another one as the camera cuts back to the arena for the next match.

    Match Two
    No. 1 Contender Match for the Cruiserweight Championship at Slamboree
    Jason Jett vs. Chavo Guerrero Jr.

    The Cruiserweight Champion, Shane Helms joins Mike Tenay and Scott Hudson on commentary to find out who the next challenger for his title will be this Sunday. Helms mentions that he's been keeping a eye on Jason Jett the past few weeks and he's impressed by him so far.

    Chavo gets in Jett's face after the opening bell and talks shit to him about his undefeated streak, telling him he's gonna end it tonight and go on to regain his Cruiserweight Title from Helms. Chavo pokes his finger in Jett's chest as he continues talking trash to him and Jett slaps his hand away. Chavo responds by smacking Jett across the face, angering Jett who fires back at Chavo with Forearm Smashes right away.

    Jett smashes Chavo back against the ropes and irish whips him across the ring, planting him with a Sitout Hip Toss. Chavo stands up and Jett Scoop Slams him on the mat before he hits a Standing Moonsault on Chavo, hooking his leg for a pin. But it only leads to a two count. Jett picks up Chavo and drills him in the chest with a Knife Edge Chop. Chavo answers back with a chop of his own and both men trade more chops with each other. Chavo rakes Jett's eyes and irish whips him to the corner. Chavo follows up with a Running Dropkick to Jett in the corner. Jett stumbles out of the corner and Chavo Snap Suplexes him before heading up top, hitting a Frog Splash on Jett. Chavo covers him, only getting a nearfall.

    Chavo picks up Jett and tucks his head between his legs, lifting him up on his shoulder for the Gory Special, stretching Jett out like an ironing board.

    Scott Hudson asks Shane Helms on commentary who he would he prefer to face at Slamboree out of Jett and Chavo. Helms replies, "I've battled Chavo numerous times and every time I've fought him, he was tough as hell. But I came out on top of our encounters with the belt. Jason Jett is making a name for himself and he's proven he's worthy of being a contender with all the names he's beaten in the Cruiserweight Division. However, there's a reason none of those guys are the champion of this division and I am. It doesn't matter who wins this and goes on to challenge me for my title at Slamboree. I have no preference cause at the end of the day, I'm still gonna walk out the champion at Slamboree and remain at the very top of the Cruiserweight mountain."

    After making Jett suffer in the Gory Special for awhile, Chavo flattens him with the Gory Bomb. Chavo rolls Jett onto his back and goes for the pin...but Jett kicks out. Chavo raises Jett off the mat and irish whips him across the ring. Chavo tries for a Clothesline but Jett ducks under and catches him with a Handspring Back Elbow.

Jett Shoulder Barges him through the middle ropes, connecting with his mid-section. Jett tucks his head between Chavo's legs and Back Body Drops Chavo over the top rope to the outside.

    Jett climbs back in the ring and ascends the top turnbuckle, waiting for Chavo to reach his feet at ringside. Jett soars off the top turnbuckle and comes crashing down on Chavo with a Diving Plancha outside. Jett picks Chavo off the floor and rolls him back into the ring. Jett steps up on the ring apron, waiting for Chavo to stand up before he slings himself over the top rope back into the ring, knocking Chavo down with the Afterburner. Jett pulls Chavo up to his feet and sets him up for The Crash Landing. Chavo lands punches on Jett's gut though, getting out of it, and Chavo applies a front headlock on Jett, hitting a quick Tornado DDT on him. Chavo goes for the pin...and gets two.

    Chavo picks up Jett and places him on the top turnbuckle. Chavo climbs onto the second turnbuckle, looking for a Superplex but Jett blocks the attempt and Front Suplexes Chavo off the second turnbuckle to the mat. Jett stands up on the top turnbuckle, waiting for Chavo to get up. Jett takes Chavo down with a Diving Crossbody. Jett has him down for a pin but Chavo brings his shoulder up at two.

Jett goes for a Superkick but Chavo catches his foot in his hands and spins Jett around...only to receive a Jumping Enziguri to the side of his head. Jett picks up Chavo and sets him up for The Crash Landing once again.


    Chavo pins Jett and the referee begins counting.


    Chavo stands up instantly and raises his arms in the air, starting to celebrate as Jett's undefeated streak has come to an end. The fans boo loudly at the referee's fuck up.



    Chavo is still celebrating in front of the crowd, thinking he just ended Jett's undefeated streak and is the No. 1 Contender to the Cruiserweight Title again, unaware that the referee called off his count and that the match is still continuing.

    The referee grabs Chavo's arm and puts it down, telling him the match is still on because Jett had his foot on the bottom rope. Chavo looks back, seeing Jett's foot on the bottom rope and shakes his head at the ref, telling him he won the match. Chavo raises his arm again, trying to pass himself off as the winner, but the referee yanks his arm down again and tells him he hasn't won. Chavo grabs his head, disappointed. He can't believe what just happened.

    Jett stands up on his feet across the ring from Chavo...and Chavo charges towards him, only to get caught with a kick to the gut.


    Jett hooks his leg for the pin...and gets the three, keeping his undefeated streak alive, extending it to 12 - 0 aswell as becoming the new No. 1 Contender to the Cruiserweight Title, earning a title match against Shane Helms at Slamboree.

Helms stands in the middle of the ring and waits for Jett to finish celebrating. Jett climbs down from the second turnbuckle and turns around, seeing Helms in front of him. Helms and Jett take a moment, staring at each other in the center of the ring. Helms raises his hand up to Jett, offering him a handshake. Jett continues staring at Helms and looks down at his hand, thinking about whether he should shake it or not. Jett comes to a decision...and decides to accept his offer, shaking hands with Helms. Helms congratulates Jett on the victory and Jett thanks him. Both men finish their handshake and Helms walks out of the ring with his belt as Jett keeps his eyes locked on him. Jett watches Helms leave up the aisle and Helms backs up the aisle, looking back at Jett in the ring. Both men nod their heads at each other in appreciation as the show goes into a commercial break.

    Raven vs. Norman Smiley

    Raven makes his entrance to the ring first and sits against the bottom turnbuckle in the corner, awaiting his opponent. Norman enters second, wearing NFL uniform. Norman sports a Denver Broncos jersey, which earns the approval of the hometown crowd.

    Norman stands in the middle of the ring, waiting for Raven to get up and start the match. Raven just stares at Norman before he calls for a mic from outside and grabs the top rope with both hands, pulling himself up to his feet. Raven raises his mic up to speak to Norman.

    "Norman, you've been lost in the shuffle around here for so long that it seems you don't even know who you are anymore. You have an identity crisis. You don't know whether you're a wrestler or an NFL football player. Maybe you don't fit in any worlds and you're just trying to find your place in society. Here..."

    Raven pulls a Sting mask from out of his jacket and holds it out to Norman, who looks puzzled.

    "Wear this. Cause just like Sting, you're lost and a man of mystery. Take it..."

    Norman shakes his head, refusing to wear the Sting mask.

    "You don't want it? Fine..."

    Raven hits Norman in the head with his microphone, knocking him down, and puts the Sting mask on Norman, placing it over his face.

    Raven takes off his jacket and starts wailing away at Norman. Raven imagines he's beating Sting at Slamboree as he pummels Norman while making him wear the Sting mask.

    The referee takes an accidental hit to the eye while Norman pounds Raven in the corner, taking the referee's focus off the competitors. Norman knocks Raven down and gets a little full of himself, deciding to do the Big Wiggle on Raven, smacking him on the ass. As he continues standing behind Raven, doing the Big Wiggle...Raven mule kicks Norman in the groin, stopping the Big Wiggle.


    The referee shakes off the cobwebs and counts as Raven pins Norman for the three.

    Winner: Raven (3.09)

    Post-Match: Raven extends both arms out, doing the crucifix pose to the crowd as they boo him.


    It's completely dark in the arena and all that can be heard are the crowd's cheers.



    Raven stares up at the titantron as the little girl talks about the battle between good vs. evil and darkness & light in her monologue.

    Once the little girl's monologue finishes, the video & Crow theme stop playing, and the lights come back on in the arena, returning to normal. Even for Raven himself, he's a little taken aback and spooked by what he just saw and heard. Raven stands in the middle of the ring, looking around the arena to see if Sting is anywhere present. Raven spots a fan in the front row, wearing a Biker jacket and Motorcycle helmet. Raven climbs out of the ring, remembering Sting's surprise attack on him 2 weeks ago on Thunder when he dressed up as a Biker in the front row. Raven slowly approaches the Biker fan in the front row, paranoid it could be Sting. Raven quickly grabs the fan's Motorcyle helmet and pulls it off to unmask him, Raven is about to swing at him...until he sees it's actually a normal fan, not Sting, and Raven pulls his punch back. Raven walks away from the fan, staring at him with Sting playing mind games on him now, leaving him paranoid. Raven backs up the aisle to leave, still a little spooked by what just happened as we go into commercial break.

    Commercial Break

    Bathroom: Raven is in the men's bathroom, staring at a reflection of himself in the mirror. Raven starts to talk, addressing Sting and his match with him at Slamboree.

    "Sting, you and I have been playing cat and mouse games with each other for the last several weeks. We've been getting inside each other's heads. This Sunday at Slamboree, there's no more running, no more mind games, it's just you and me one-on-one in the ring. I told you a couple of weeks back that all those little Stingers you've held so dear for so long would grow up and turn on you. Yet you still live a lie, one filled with false hope. You just can't turn your back on the Stingers. Well I am the man who's going to close the book on the fairytale that you've been living for far too long. This time the dragon sets the night aflame. This time the outlaw hangs the sherriff with his own noose. This time the villian prevails. My victory is prophetic. Your fate is sealed. So it is written, so it shall come to pass. QUOTH THE RAVEN, NEVERMORE!"

    Just as Raven finishes talking, he sees Sting appear in the mirror, seemingly standing behind him.


    Raven has a bewildered look on his face. The Stinger continues to serve Raven a dose of his own mind games. Raven turns back around to the mirror, which is now covered with steam and has a message written on the steamy mirror that's been left by Sting, which reads: "QUOTE THE STINGER, NEVERMORE!

    Raven then looks down...and sees a Scorpion crawling about in the sink, making him back away in fear.

    Raven leaves the bathroom before he gets any more surprises/messages from Sting.

    Match Five
    Kevin Nash vs. Buff Bagwell

    Buff Bagwell circles the ring, trying to avoid Big Sexy. Nash stalks Bagwell and slowly backs him up into a corner, blocking him in.
