Default [b]**SPOILERS** - WWE RAW Results For Tonight

**SPOILERS** - WWE RAW Results For Tonight
04/23/2007 by Ryan Clark [/b]

James Erskine of PWInsider.com sent in these results:

WWE is at Earls Court

Heat

*Todd Grisham is doing his best to warm up a noisy and full arena. We have heard eleven and a half thousand fans (a sellout) in attendance.

Ric Flair does a promo, thanking us for our presence and says the WWE loves London.

Mickie James defeats Victoria to not much reaction.

Next up is Chris Masters vs. Val Venis, who comes out to almost no reaction despite my best efforts. Masters wins in an OK bout. Venis asks for a rematch right there and gets it, winning. Not sure how it will air on Heat.

RAW:

RAW starts with a Shane McMahon promo. He runs over last week and Lashley and the Intercontinental belt. He then - because its St. George's Day - offers a No DQ match to anyone in the audience. From the back comes Robbie Brookside from Liverpool. Shane wrestles for a bit and does the trash can Van Terminator. Shane then announces it is a handicap match and his tag team partner is Umaga, who continues beating Robbie (Robbie is from FWA, by the way.) Umaga goes off the top rope with the splash. Shane then announces it is not a two-on-one handicap match after all. It is a three-on-one, and Vince McMahon comes out to get the pin.

Tomorrow night on ECW is Lashley vs. Umaga.

From the video package they just showed, I think the audience may be 50/50 for Cena and Michaels.

Matt Hardy - big pop - vs. Trevor Murdoch. "Let's Go Hardy" chant! Hardy loses to Trevor after his power bomb. He and Cade celebrate outside the ring.

They just promo'd Randy Orton vs. Edge. Surely that ain't going to happen.

Melina out next. Now Todd Grisham introduces Maria. Non-title match. Maria loses in no more than three minutes.

Carlito and Flair in a short promo. They are next.

The Great Khali comes out, they won't even show his entrance on television. He is up against Carlito. Some small cheers for Khali. Big pop for Carlito. Carlito loses in a few minutes. No major offense from him. Rumors in the row in front of us about Carlito being fired. Flair comes out to offer help, but Carlito refuses, Flair leaves a little down.

Mick Foley promo. He is in the back and does a cheap pop, then Edge interrupts the promo and thanks Mick for the kid's choice of main event at Backlash. Edge talks about how he is looking forward to Cena-Michaels. Seems weird that he is here for just a backstage bit. Also, no mention of the fight previously plugged on the Titantron - Edge vs. Randy Orton.

Michaels and Cena promo backstage. Cena points out the crowd respects Shawn and so does he. Shawn comes out for a the main event and gets a few boos. Cena gets loads of boos.

Obviously, the Randy-Edge graphic was an error, but they have not explained why Randy isn't on the show.

Crowd fifty-fifty in boos, Cena, it has to be said, is being cheered more. Very slow paced match. Almost losing an "up for it" crowd. Back and forth, real long match. HBK in control for a long spell and throws Cena into the ring post. Michaels missed a superkick. Cena finally hit the FU, but Michaels kicked out. Cena then threw Michaels to the floor to loud boos. HBK kicked out of a leg drop from the top rope. Match has gone past a half hour now, and is getting better all the time. Shawn goes for piledriver on the outside steps, but it gets reversed.

Michaels pins Cena after a missed FU and a super kick.

No run ins. Better part of an hour and the row behind us says it was better than the Wrestlemania match. Possibly the TV match of the year. Michaels picks up the belt, holds it up to Cena's face and holds it in the air (note, this was a non-title match). Crotch chops and that's it. Raw is over.

After cameras stop, HBK leaves to cheers and Cena leaves after some time and gets more boos and some clapping.

What the Sunday Night Heat still comes on. I used to watch that in 1998-1999 all the time.

Anyone remember Shotgun Saturday Night

Yes! Shotgun Saturday Night was the greatest until they started to tape it before RAW. When they had it on it's own in those nightclubs/bars it was awesome. Really edgy material for the WWF back then. Marlena (Terri Runnels) taking off her top to distract Goldust's opponent, the Sunny "sex tape", Undertaker giving Triple H the tombstone on the escalator, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and Terry Funk getting into a barrroom brawl. Awesome! I think they should release every episode on DVD. I'd pick that up for sure.

And yeah, Sunday Night Heat still comes on but it's only online now.

Thats when wrestling was at its primes. Mondays you had RAW is War and Nitro, Thurday you had Thunder then later on Smackdown!. On Saturdays you had WCW Saturday Night then around midnight Shotgun then Sunday it was time for Heat.

The best things about those Shotgun and WCW Saturday Night is when the headliners would make appearences (those shows were for mid-carders basically like Val Venis and Vincent from nWo )

**SPOILERS** WWE SmackDown! Taping Results
04/24/2007 by Ryan Clark

Thanks to Mark Bright of WrestleMag.com for calling in these results:

- The Hardy Boyz beat Chavo Guerrero & Gregory Helms in a pre-TV dark match. This was held before the ECW TV taping and opened the show for the live crowd.

- As they made the change from the ECW set to the Smackdown set, a Triple H video package played on the Tron.

- Smackdown opens with Batista, Mr. Kennedy and Finlay brawling backstage. Eventually the brawl takes them onto the stage. The lights go out, then return with Undertaker stood in the middle of the ring. They lights go back off and back on, with Undertaker nowhere to be seen.

- The Undertaker & Batista vs Mr. Kennedy & Finlay in a no DQ match was announced as the main event.

- The Boogeyman & Kane beat William Regal & Dave Taylor after The Boogeyman hit Taylor with a sit-down version of Khali’s finisher. This one dragged.

- Deuce (w/Domino) beat Brian Kendrick (w/Paul London).

- MVP cut a quick promo, then won a quick squash match against ‘The Scottish Champion’ (Drew Galloway we think). MVP grabs the mic to announce a second opponent, but he’s interrupted by Chris Benoit. We get Benoit vs MVP right away, with Benoit winning via countout after MVP rolls out the ring to avoid the diving headbutt, and walks away. He teases returning to the ring at the count of nine, but walks away again.

- Teddy Long and Kristal were shown backstage talking.

- Jillian Hall vs Michelle McCool was up next. Jillian sang and dedicated her song to Prince William, since he’s single now. Somehow she sounds even worse live than on TV. Jillian then beat McCool, but got beat up after the match.

- The Undertaker & Batista vs Mr. Kennedy & Finlay is up now. Batista is working with his right thigh taped up. Batista pinned Finlay after a spinebuster for the win. Post-match, Batista cut a promo, saying he’d take his World Title back from Undertaker this Sunday. Undertaker responded by saying he’ll take Batista’s soul

**SPOILERS** ECW Results For Tonight
04/24/2007 by Ryan Clark

Thanks to Mark Bright of WrestleMag.com for calling in these results:

- The set is the usual UK deal with a phone box, London bus etc.

- ECW got started with CM Punk backstage with the New Breed. Punk gave one of those phony heel apologies and said to put it behind them as they’ve got the 8-man elimination match coming up tonight.

- Bobby Lashley beat Umaga via DQ in their WrestleMania 23 rematch. After the match, Lashley beat down Armando and Vince.

- Elijah Burke cut a promo saying tonight was the biggest night of the New Breed’s life.

- A video for The Condemned aired.

- Snitsky beat Balls Mahoney in a short match.

- CM Punk returned for another New Breed match ahead of tonight’s ECW main event.

- A video aired to plug the Dusty Rhodes DVD, which has been out for a year or so.

- The ECW Originals (RVD, Sabu, Sandman, Dreamer) took on The New Breed. Punk was made by Burke to sit at ringside to keep it 4 on 4 as The New Breed team is Burke, Striker, Cor Von and Thorn. They eventually get down to Burke vs RVD. Punk laid out Burke with a kick, leading to Van Dam hitting him with the frogsplash and getting the win.

Post-match, Punk hit Burke with the Go To Sleep to end the ECW taping.
