Welcome everyone to another edition of Texas Championship Wrestling. I'm Jim Ross joined by Jesse the Body Ventura, and Jess we are just one night removed from the biggest PPV of the year.
Ross Sting may have won the championship last night, but he's about to find out it's a whole lot easier to chase the title than defend it.
Well he's going to find out tonight who he's defending it against, when Chris Benoit, Raven, JBL, and the Rock face off in a fatal four way match to determine the number one contender.
Yeah and my money is on the Rock, he has held on to that US title for two years plus he has the Nation in his corner.
Well here they are now. The Rock the United States champion joined by Charles Wright, D-Low and Mark Henry who we found out last night will be defending their titles against the Briscoe Brothers at the end of the month.
All you people need to know your role and shut your mouth. The Rock should not have to win a fatal four way match to be the number one contender. The Rock hasn't lost a match since arriving in TCW. This is another sign of the white leadership keeping us down.
What is he talking about? Jess I know you believe in conspiracies.
He's right Ross.
First the Rock is going to get in that ring and go for Benoit. The Rock is going to smack Benoit so hard the ugly will come off of him. It might take all night but the Rock doesn't mind because after he's done with Benoit he's going to turn his attention to JBL. The Rock is going to take that cowboy hat of JBL's, dust it off, shine it up real nice and stick it straight up his candy ass. Then the only one left will be Raven. The Rock knows that Raven doesn't travel alone, no the Rock knows that Raven will have his flock with him, so here's what the Rock's going to do. The Rock is going to let Sandman come at him because the Sandman is a drunken piece of trailer park trash. Then when the Sandman comes at him the Rock will hit him with the Rock bottom. Then next will be Sabu, the dumbest son of a bitch in TCW. The Rock knew Sabu back in elementary school, the Rock remembers the teacher asking Sabu "Little Sabu what is two plus two?" and the Rock remembers Sabu answering "Thomas Jefferson." So then Sabu will get hit with the Rock bottom, and after seeing what the Rock has done Tommy Dreamer won't even enter the ring. And all that will be left is Raven. Raven if you think what Sting did to you last night was bad wait until you're in the ring with the peoples champion. Tonight I'm becoming the number one contender If Ya Smeeeellllllllllllalalalalal What the Rock Is Cooking!
How can anyone question the Rock? Ross we just heard from the new TCW champion.
Gangrel and Vampiro vs. The Headbangers
Gangrel and Vampiro making their TCW debut, and boy are they strange.
Yeah they're not the type of guys you want to take home to mom.
Gangrel and Vampiro make quick work of the Headbangers and pick up the victory. After the match Gangrel grabs the mic.
Three more weeks... he's coming in three more weeks...
Vampiro and Gangrel leave laughing.
What do you think they're talking about Jess?
I don't know for sure, but I would bet it has something to do with that message we saw last night.
DDP vs. Job Ber
DDP comes out through the crowd and seems to be getting a very good reaction. It's his first match on television. Ber goes for a close line put Paige ducks and hits him with the diamond cutter. The crowd pops as DDP picks up the victory.
Impressive debut for DDP, now well take it back to Coach who is joined with the Briscoe Brothers.
You two won the tag-team battle royal match and are now the number one contenders for the tag-team championship. Do you really think you'll be able to beat D-Low and Mark Henry when they will have the rest of the Nation in their corner?
Coach you thin I give a **** about tha Nation. A bunch a grown men crying everday. The say "We being held down" "We not gettin" the shots we deserved" Me and Jay almost didn't get into TCW. We had our tryout match, we wipped ass like we always does, but Bischoff called me up on ma phone and said we weren't "cosmetically pleasing enough for TCW" I'm sorry I thought this was wressling not a dam beauty contest. But did we complain? No we just kept kicking ass and drinking beer, and at the PPV this month that's exactly what we's gonna do.
The Rock vs. Raven vs. Chris Benoit vs. JBL: Fatal Four Way Elimination to Determine the Number One Contender
The match begins with all four men going at it. The Rock and JBL are locked up and Raven and Benoit are too. Raven hits Benoit with and arm drag and Benoit kicks out at one.
Chris Benoit is tougher than a $2 steak, one day Raven will learn that you can't beat him with an arm drag.
Raven and Benoit tag their fight to the outside. JBL goes for the close-line from hell but the Rock ducks and hits him with the Rock bottom. He goes for the pin and JBL is eliminated. The Rock stands in the corner and catches his breath as Raven and Benoit make their way back to the ring. Benoit locks Raven in the cross-face but Ravens flock comes through the crowd and breaks it up. The Nation then makes it's way to the ring and it's full. The Nation and Raven's flock battle as both groups fall out of the ring, Benoit, Rock, and Raven are alone in the ring now. The Rock slides away from a charging Benoit. Raven the turns and tries to set Benoit up for the DDT but Benoit counters it into the cross-face. Raven can't make it to the ropes and he's forced to tap. The Rock and Benoit battle back and fourth in a very even match. Benoit goes for a suplex but the Rock counters it into a Rock Bottom. He then hits Benoit with the People's Elbow and picks up the victory.
Bawh God the Rock has done it. He has won the fatal four way and will now face Sting for the TCW championship.
Speaking of the Champ, look up there.
Sting is show holding his belt high up in the rafters.
