The Revolution has begun for the WWE in 2006. Last night at New Year’s Revolution, Edge finally cashed in his ‘money in the bank’ victory from Wrestlemania and took advantage of John Cena, who just wrestled in a twenty-eight minute Elimination Chamber match. What will happen to Edge and will he be bound for glory or will his title reign be short lived? What will happen now that we are less than three weeks away from the Royal Rumble? Did we see a love connection last night between Shelton’s mama and the big man in pajamas? Is Mickie James still obsessed with Trish Stratus despite not winning the women’s title last night? Will Maria interview anyone as interesting as the person she interviewed last night at the pay per view? Will we hear from Matt Hardy about Edge’s title victory?
Even though I will try to get the Unlimited segments in this report, make sure to check out Brian Richey’s detailed Unlimited Report on the main site.
We begin with footage of last night’s Elimination Chamber match that saw John Cena retain the WWE Title. Then we see Vince McMahon come out and announce that Edge will face John Cena after cashing in his ‘money in the bank’; and we see Edge win the WWE Title after a second spear.
We are live from Hershey, Pennsylvania and your announcers are Joey ‘Oh My God’ Styles, Jonathan ‘White Chocolate’ Coachman, and Jerry ‘How about some kisses’ Lawler.
The former champ John Cena comes to the ring to address the crowd. Cena asks the crowd if they can get any louder. He wants them to go all out if they want to do it. He says that he is trying to understand things. He assumes that life is full of choices. Last night, Edge had a very opportunistic chance to cash in his ‘money in the bank’ to win the WWE championship. Tonight, the fans are making a choice. Some have made a choice that John Cena sucks. John says that there are some people who chose to ride with him through the good times and the bad times, not because it was the cool thing to do. Cena mentions Allen Iverson and that there are a million people who love him and ten million people who hate him. He goes to bat for everyone who rides with him. For the ones who are drinking Haterade, they can kiss his ass. Cena says tonight he is making a choice. Tonight, he is going to cash in on his rematch clause. He wants a piece of Edge for the WWE Title.
Edge’s music plays and Lita comes out with the WWE Title belt. Lita asks Cena if he wants another chance to be champion. He will get a chance, but not tonight. The new WWE Champion, Edge, sees things a little bit differently. Edge thought it would be a good idea to talk to Vince McMahon, and after some oral persuasion, he agreed with Edge and Lita that Cena doesn’t get his rematch until the Royal Rumble. Lita says that Edge is not going to be doing any fighting tonight, but he will be doing something else that starts with the letter ‘f’. The only wrestling that Edge is going to do tonight is with Lita in the middle of the ring. They are going to go to the ring and take off their clothes and they will get into bed. Lita says that unlike John Cena, Edge is going to go more than two minutes. Lita says that it will be a ménage a trios. It will be Lita, Edge, and the WWE title. Lita says that Edge knows what to do in bed, and he knows what to do in the ring. That is why Edge is going to win at the Royal Rumble, and Cena can bank on that. Tonight, Edge is going to do what none of the boys in the building can do, and that is getting laid. Lita mocks the ‘You Can’t See Me’ and starts to walk away. Cena calls Lita a one woman hooker parade. Some may think that Cena sucks, but they know that Lita does. Cena tells Lita to go backstage and tell Mr. Opportunity that he made a wise decision last night. He wants Lita to tell Edge that he made a mistake. At the Royal Ruble, he will beat Edge’s ass, and she can bank on that. We go to commercial.
On Unlimited, Mickie James comes to the ring. Mickie introduces herself to the crowd in case they don’t know her. She mentions that last night, her dreams became a reality when she got to wrestle her idol, the greatest women’s champion, Trish Stratus. Her whole life, she has wanted nothing more than to be a WWE Diva. Mickie says that her grand pappy was looking down on the match and he was smiling because Mickie got to wrestle her hero. Mickie hopes that Trish’s dreams came true. Last night, their skin touched and that was magical.
