R-Truth def. Bam Neely United States Champion Shelton Benjamin def. MVP (Non-title) Maryse def. Maria The Brian Kendrick def. Jeff Hardy Super Crazy def. Ryan Braddock Brie Bella def. Victoria WWE Champion Triple H def. The Great Khali (Non-title Lumberjack Match ST. LOUIS – Just two days before the WWE Championship Scramble Match at Unforgiven, General Manager Vickie Guerrero attempted to reclaim control of SmackDown.
Even after Undertaker continued his reign of terror, promising that “endless agony and an eternity in Hell” would befall her at Unforgiven (WATCH), an irate Guerrero burst on the scene with all the authority of her office. She stood toe-to-toe with both Big Show and Vladimir Kozlov, ordering them out of “her ring” before demanding that The Deadman give her an apology at the pay-per-view this Sunday. (WATCH)
A Scrambling twist WWE Champion Triple H defeated The Great Khali in a non-title Lumberjack Match with all of his WWE Championship Scramble opponents surrounding the ring. But, when the smoke cleared at the end of the night, it was Jeff Hardy who stood tall. After helping to even the odds as his fellow lumberjacks ganged up on The Game, the Legend Thriller suddenly delivered a surprise Twist of Fate to the champion, leaving no doubt that he is determined to take the gold away from him.
Earlier, The Brian Kendrick kept his SmackDown undefeated streak alive with an impressive win over the high-flying Hardy, thanks in no small part to Ezekiel Jackson. Just when it looked like Hardy was putting The Brian Kendrick away, Jackson yanked him from the ring and propelled him into the ringside wall, setting up his associate for the win.
United States Champion Shelton Benjamin gained some momentum of his own, hitting Pay Dirt to score a huge victory over his fellow WWE Championship Scramble participant and former United States Champion, Montel Vontavious Porter.
Which Superstar will walk out of Unforgiven with the WWE Championship around his waist?
The Truth unleashed R-Truth continued to make the most out of his second chance at life. After rapping his way through the St. Louis crowd, he scored an impressive win over Bam Neely, utilizing a high-octane arsenal that culminated with a devastating Ax Kick. (WATCH)
Sultry success After executing her lethal DDT on Maria for the second time in two weeks, Maryse heads into Unforgiven on a high note for her golden opportunity against Divas Champion Michelle McCool. Will the sultry Diva find the same success against the All-American Champion?
From Russia with hate Vladimir Kozlov continued his tireless search for better competition. Following Super Crazy’s success over newcomer Ryan Braddock, the Moscow Mauler invaded. But, when he threw down the iron gauntlet, it was Big Show that answered the call. However, before The World’s Largest Athlete could give Kozlov the biggest challenge of his life, the Superstars were ordered out of the ring by an enraged Vickie Guerrero.
A ringside enigma For the second week in a row, Brie Bella has left the WWE Universe completely bewildered. Just when it looked as if her chances for success were fading, Bella sought refuge under the ring, reemerging to catch Victoria completely off guard.
According to numerous sources Gail Kim is not officially gone from TNA just yet. Apparently Gail and Dixie Carter have agreed to meet and discuss the possibility of her staying with the company. Neither women was happy with the way the situation was handled by the lawyers and agents have decided to talk things over one on one. Gail was offered a new deal by WWE but she did not sign it yet as she would really like to stay in TNA.

Update on the futures of Christian Cage/Kevin Nash
According to Dave Meltzer, it could still go either way in regards to Kevin Nash and Christian Cage signing new deals with TNA Wrestling. A lot of it is going to depend mostly on how interested WWE is in either guy.
As far as Nash goes, it is believed that he has made it clear to TNA that WWE is interested in bringing him back. If he were to return to WWE, he would likely team up again with Shawn Michaels to combat Chris Jericho and Lance Cade. There is still concern as to what Nash can do in the ring even with Michaels as a tag-team partner.
It appears that WWE no longer has heat with Cage in regards to the way that he left the company in 2005. One of the things that likely held Cage down in the past was his lack of size, but due to the WWE's Wellness Policy, that wouldn't be as much of a factor now.
PITTSBURGH – After a wild beginning on ECW on Sci Fi with a live edition of “The Dirt Sheet,” Matt Hardy, Finlay, Tommy Dreamer & Evan Bourne won an Eight-Man Tag Team Match, with Hardy pinning ECW Champion Mark Henry for the victory – after the World’s Strongest Man was given a Shooting Star Press by Bourne, a splash from Dreamer, a body splash from Finlay, and a Twist of Fate from Hardy. (WATCH)
In an Extreme world where five Superstars will vie for the ECW Championship at Unforgiven, things were upside down when The Miz & John Morrison hosted a special episode of their hit WWE.com show, “The Dirt Sheet,” on ECW on Sci Fi. Miz is one of the challengers in the ECW Championship Scramble on Sunday, and he was joined by guests Matt Hardy, Chavo Guerrero, Finlay and the World’s Strongest Champion, Mark Henry.
Each guest, however, was treated to the insulting words of Miz & Morrison – words that sparked a wild melee when Morrison hit Hardy with a microphone. As Miz, Morrison, Guerrero, Bam Neely, Mark Henry and WWE Hall of Famer Tony Atlas attacked Hardy and Finlay, Evan Bourne and Tommy Dreamer rushed to their aid, clearing the ring of the imminent threat. (WATCH) Who will walk out of Unforgiven with the ECW gold? Can Henry hold on despite the 80 percent chance of losing his title? Or will someone else step up and take the gold for themselves?
Ricky Ortiz continued his undefeated streak on ECW, defeating Ryan Braddock. The towel-waving Ortiz has been impressive during his streak, but how long can he keep the victories piling up?
Victories seem to be eluding newcomer Gavin Spears who, despite his claims that he is the “crown jewel” of ECW General Manager Theodore Long’s New Superstar Initiative, has yet to taste success on ECW on Sci Fi. Spears did battle with Super Crazy Tuesday night, once again coming up short in his bid to earn his first win. Will Spears live up to his claims?
While it hasn't been made official yet by WWE, the word going around is that Shawn Michaels suffered a minor tear of his triceps which will not require surgery. The match for Sunday is apparently still going to take place and Michaels might not even need any time off. If this is all true, WWE and Michaels got a tremendous break.

ST. LOUIS – Less than a week before Unforgiven, the participants of the World Heavyweight Championship and ECW Championship Scrambles faced off in over-the-top-rope Battle Royals. In addition, Raw was the site of several shocking returns, including Randy Orton, Candice Michelle and the high-flying Rey Mysterio.
Back from Hell At the beginning of the night, the still-injured Randy Orton appeared in his hometown to belittle Raw’s champions, drawing World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk out to the ring. After their exchange, two of Punk’s Championship Scramble opponents, Kane and JBL, made their presence known, boasting of their chances at Unforgiven. They were interrupted by another Scramble competitor, however, when Batista made his way to the ring, gunning for the Big Red Monster, who had brutalized The Animal’s friend, Rey Mysterio. Afterward, he turned his attack on the Straightedge Champion and the self-proclaimed “wrestling god,” spearing them both. (WATCH)
All four men faced off later in the night in a Battle Royal meant to feature all five competitors, but Rey Mysterio was still missing. Though Punk performed well, eliminating Batista and JBL, the ferocity of Kane was too much for the World Heavyweight Champion. After Punk was thrown from the ring, he had another confrontation with Randy Orton, dousing the Legend Killer with water. Meanwhile, Kane’s victory was interrupted by Rey Mysterio’s familiar entrance music, as the Master of the 619 ran straight for the ring and dismantled the Big Red Machine. (WATCH)
Truly unforgiven In the ring together for the first time since Chris Jericho inadvertently punched Shawn Michaels’ wife, the two Superstars met to sign the contract waiving personal liability for whatever might happen in their Unsanctioned Match at Unforgiven. HBK and the first-ever Undisputed Champion shared harsh words, promising to do heinous things to one another on Sunday night. Hoping to get the jump on his former teacher, Lance Cade rushed the ring, but was caught by the ever-alert Michaels, who proceeded to viciously batter Jericho’s protégé. HBK’s assault was so aggressive and intense that he severely injured his arm, jeopardizing his match at Unforgiven. (WATCH)
Raw goes extreme As part of a cooperative effort between Raw General Manager Mike Adamle and ECW GM Teddy Long, ECW Champion Mark Henry and his four Championship Scramble opponents also competed against one another in a Battle Royal. The World’s Strongest Champion showed why he deserves to have the coveted title around his waist as he eliminated Chavo Guerrero, The Miz, Finlay and Matt Hardy, to victory. (WATCH)
Killer pep talk In his address at the beginning of the night, Randy Orton also took aim at World Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase, saying that a better name for the “priceless” Superstars would be “worthless,” since they allowed two “thugs” to steal their titles. Later, in the locker room area, the champions confronted the Legend Killer, who slapped Rhodes and encouraged both young Superstars to take some action and “grow a set.”
Later, Cryme Tyme and The Miz & John Morrison prepared to face one another in a tag team match – a result of the rivalry seen on their programs on WWE.com: “Word Up” and “The Dirt Sheet.” Before the four Superstars could even make it into the ring, World Tag Team Champions Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase took Orton’s advice, brutally attacking Cryme Tyme and taking back their stolen titles.
All eyes on her Though Orton is still recovering from his injuries, former Women’s Champion Candice Michelle appeared on Raw fully healed and ready to go. The returning Diva worked together with Mickie James & Kelly Kelly to take on the team of Women’s Champion Beth Phoenix, Jillian & Katie Lea Burchill. In spite of The Glamazon’s boasts about her strength and power, Candice led her team to victory by pinning Phoenix, the woman who injured her months ago. (WATCH)
Though one-half of “Glamarella” had difficulties securing a win on Raw, Beth Phoenix’s beau, Intercontinental Champion Santino Marella, tasted victory in a match against D-Lo Brown, as he commenced the countdown to breaking Honky Tonk Man’s record for longest Intercontinental Title reign, with only 62 weeks to go.
The who is here? When John Cena’s entrance music played in St. Louis, the crowd’s response was one of surprise and excitement, since the former WWE Champion had just undergone successful emergency surgery for a herniated disk in his neck. They were even more surprised when they saw who was wearing Cena’s signature gear: Charlie Haas. Though the former WWE Tag Team Champion continued his trend of dressing up like other Superstars, Cena’s moves and appearance weren’t enough for him to defeat the Jamaican Superstar, Kofi Kingston.
Noble impression As Layla looked on, Jamie Noble competed against William Regal. Though the 2008 King of the Ring was in brutal form, Noble shocked and impressed the beautiful Diva at ringside by rolling Regal up for the pin.
As we reported last night, Shawn Michaels suffered a torn triceps muscle working an angle with Chris Jericho and Lance Cade at the Raw and Smackdown television tapings in St. Louis, MO. The word last night is that, despite the injury, Michaels still intends to work against Y2J at Sunday's Unforgiven PPV in Cleveland, OH. Typically speaking, torn triceps require surgery and requires about six months time to recover.
According to Mike Johnson at PWInsider.com, Shawn Michaels suffered what is believed to be a triceps tear tonight at the RAW taping in St. Louis, MO. That is the only word we have on the situation at the moment.
Jeff Jarrett was not in favor of signing Sting last year since he didn't work house shows or international events. The decision to resign him is solely upon Dixie Carter. She views Sting as a true superstar who helps establish new business deals. Kurt Angle was viewed the same but now is being questioned since he hasn't increased ratings or PPV buyrates, and is known for being stubborn with new ideas from the creative team. The feeling is that Sting will be the ultimate decider on if he remains with the company for another year.
