WWE RAW Opener:

The music of Vince McMahon hit in the arena as he made his way down to the ring. Joey Styles, Jerry Lawler and the Coach welcomed us from ringside as McMahon said he announced last week a personal zero tolerance policy, which means he won’t take any crap from anyone ever again. Not from you people, not from Shawn Michaels, not from anyone! Translation, no more Mr Nice Guy! He said he’s going to move on, but for him, not for the people. Everything he did professionally was for the fans, but to hell with that. From now on, it’s all about him. That is why he made tonight’s First Blood Match, for his own amusement. That is also why he made the match they are about to see. He handed Lilian to mic and then Kane’s pyro hit as he made his way to the ring as one half of the World Tag Team Champions!

Referee: Michael Chioda

Kane vs. Shawn Michaels

Shawn Michaels music then hit as he made his way down to the ring, and it looks like Vince is punishing the Heartbreak Kid! Vince stayed in the ring as Michaels entered and got back on the mic. McMahon said there is a stipulation in this match, if Shawn Michaels uses the Superkick, he is disqualified and loses the match! Michaels was pissed and argued with Vince and we are underway.

The start:

Michaels went to work with chops in the corner and then went for a cross body but Kane caught him but Michaels wiggled free. Michaels nailed more chops but Kane tossed him hard to the corner. Kane kicked away at Michaels in the corner as McMahon looked on from ringside. Kane went for a suplex but Michaels got an inside cradle for two. Kane levelled Michaels and sent him to the ropes but Michaels hit a sunset flip for two. Kane came back with an uppercut to drop Michaels and then choked him with his boot.

Mid-match notes:

Kane nailed a big right hand, and then another, but Michaels came back with rights of his own. Kane tossed Michaels to the corner and then hammered away with more shots and then choked Michaels. Kane hit a body slam and then chopped the throat and covered for two. Kane ate boot in the corner and Michaels started to come back with chops to the chest and then clotheslined Kane to the outside! Michaels hit a flying cross body over the top and McMahon got to his feet. Michaels yelled at McMahon and asked why’s he doing it, and that he has given him everything. Kane then nailed Michaels and McMahon laughed as we went to commercial.

Back on RAW and Michaels has Kane in a sleeper hold. Kane backed Michaels to the corner but Michaels jumped back on with the sleeper. Kane backed Michaels to the corner again and Michaels again dived back on with the sleeper hold. Kane escaped with a back suplex as McMahon looked on. Kane went for an elbow but Michaels moved and then headed up top. Michaels dived off but Kane nailed a shot to the mid section and then choked away at Michaels. Kane hit a huge leg drop and then covered for a near fall. Kane locked in a head vice and then clubbed the back of Michaels before choking him over the middle rope. Kane went to the outside and hit a big uppercut on Michaels and covered for another two count.

Kane went back to the head vice as the fans started to get behind the Heartbreak Kid. Michaels fought out and then traded right hands with the Big Red Machine. Michaels chopped away at Kane and then hit a big knee lift. Michaels hit more chops to the chest but then Kane grabbed him by the throat and went for the chokeslam but Michaels blocked it. Kane went to work with right hands in the corner but Michaels rallied with chops and then hit a flying forearm! Michaels nipped up and hit an atomic drop and then a kick to the gut and a big DDT for a near fall! Michaels hit a spinning neckbreaker for another two count and then charged at Kane but was taken down with a big boot, which pleased McMahon.

The Finish:

Kane headed up top and went for the clothesline but Michaels ducked it and knocked Kane down with a pair of clotheslines before heading up top himself. Michaels came off with the flying elbow drop and now he instinctively wants to do Sweet Chin Music. Michaels goes for it and McMahon gets on the mic and said if he uses it, he will be thrown out of the Elimination Chamber! Kane then nailed Michaels with the Chokeslam for the win!

Winner – Kane

The Aftermath:

McMahon looked very pleased as Kane has picked up a huge win here over Shawn Michaels. Todd Grisham then came out and Vince ordered him down to the ring as McMahon made his way to the back.

During the break:

Todd Grisham informed Michaels that he will be the first man inside the chamber at New Years Revolution. Michaels didn’t look pleased and walked off.

Last week on WWE Unlimited:

Gregory Helms was shown giving comments saying someone is holding him down, saying bad things about him, and that person is Jerry Lawler. Everyone loves the King. Making a joke out of his career isn’t funny at all, and Helms said he is going to shut him up.

In the arena:

The music of Gregory Helms hit in the arena as he made his way down to the ring with a mic in hand. Helms said Lawler is talking trash about somebody, hiding behind his table and microphone. He said unlike Lawler, if he has something to say, he says it face to face. Helms said he knows there is a little spring left in the King and to get in the ring and hear him out. Lawler did so as Helms asked Lawler if he had something to say. He said when he was the Hurricane, Lawler had a joke a minute. Helms said if anyone is a joke, it’s Lawler. Lawler said at least when he was the Hurricane, at least he was half way entertaining, but now, he’s not a Hurricane, he’s just a guy…who sucks. Helms slapped Lawler and then King nailed him with some right hands and Lawler challenged Helms to a match at New Years Revolution! Helms backed up the aisle as the King’s music played.

McMahon said he sides on the side of the troops, and they will want to see him get his ass kicked tonight. He said he doesn’t give a damn if it’s Angle or Cena who bleeds, as long as it’s profusely.

He said he will make Cena bleed, and will make Michaels tap out on Sunday as a favour to McMahon.

Maria asked if they wanted to be on kiss cam, and Victoria took the mic and asked Maria if she had a nice new years? Victoria said she was home hurt, recovering from what Carlito did to her. Victoria asked Maria where she was. Was she too busy with the Kiss Cam, or is she too stupid? I bet she didn’t even know they had a match scheduled tonight.

A man who paved the way for future superstars, a man who has given everything to this business. Edge says he says to those people that they are full of crap. He says he is one of a kind, he’d be the Rated R Superstar if there was a Ric Flair or not. He said everything he is saying about Ric Flair is the truth. He got his hands on some footage and it’s Edge dressed as Flair driving a car. A car in front cuts him off and he pulls over and woo’s around a bit.

In the arena:

The music of Triple H hit in the arena as eh made his way down to the ring. Triple H got on the mic and said there is a lot of people in the world who talk about the things they want to get done, but when they get round to it, they fail miserably. He said when he comes up with a plan, he follows through with it, and when he executes the plan he nails it every time. There is no coincidence or chance, it’s all premeditated. He will take any moment and make it an opportunity to benefit him. He’s sure Big Show is sitting home thinking this is information he could have used last week. We then see footage of last week’s contract signing, with Triple H stabbing Show in the face with a pen, and then whacking the right hand of the Big Show with the sledgehammer. They didn’t show the right footage, but it’s live TV and he’ll just wing it. He said last week Big Show got in his face and he broke his damn hand. Nothing is funnier to him than someone else’s misfortune, but he doesn’t think Big Show found it funny. He said it wasn’t meant to be funny, it was meant to be dead serious. He said Show stuck his nose into his business, and if he keeps pushing his luck, he will hurt him permanently. He said there is an old saying, the bigger they are the harder they fall…the music of the Big Show then hit and he had a huge cast over his entire hand! Triple H looked worried and then started laughing and mocked the Big Show. Triple H backed out of the ring and grabbed a steel chair. Show made his way over towards Triple H and Show punched the chair right out of his hand! Show then punched right through a monitor and sparks flew! Show punched the steel steps over, and Show has a sledgehammer for a fist with that cast! Triple H backed up the aisle and these two meet at New Years Revolution!

She called him a disgrace and to get his behind in the shower because he stinks!
