Undertaker & Triple H def. WWE Champion Edge & Big Show (Tag Team Match) (WATCH | PHOTOS) Before a tag team match featuring four of the six WWE Championship Elimination Chamber participants, SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero told Big Show that if he walked out on Edge the way he did the last time they tagged together, he would be out of the championship match at No Way Out. After a grueling bout, a disagreement between the two reluctant partners prompted The World’s Largest Athlete to deliver the Knockout Punch to the Rated-R Superstar. The Game then tagged in Undertaker, who hit Edge with the Tombstone Piledriver for the pin. Big Show wasted no time leaving the champion’s corner the second the bell rang.
Vladimir Kozlov reigns supreme in the SmackDown Battle Royal to qualify for final spot in WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match (WATCH | PHOTOS) The Moscow Mauler tossed out The Great Khali, WWE Tag Team Champions Carlito & Primo, and R-Truth consecutively to win the SmackDown Battle Royal in convincing fashion and claim the final spot in the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match at No Way Out.

Matt Hardy and Hurricane Helms brawl it out (WATCH | PHOTOS) As the WWE Universe anxiously awaits the return of Jeff Hardy, Hurricane Helms made it clear to Todd Grisham that he was gunning for Matt Hardy after his actions against Jeff at the Royal Rumble.

Montel Vontavious Porter def. United States Champion Shelton Benjamin (Non-title) (PHOTOS) MVP continued his winning streak with a devastating Drive-by Kick and a straight up ballin’ triumph over United States Champion Shelton Benjamin.

Michelle McCool def. Eve (WATCH | PHOTOS) Eve showed a great deal of heart in her first match, before eventually tapping out to Michelle’s excruciating heel hook. However, when the former Divas Champion wouldn’t let go of the hold, Maria sprinted down to Eve’s rescue.

ST. LOUIS – Finlay defeated ECW Champion Jack Swagger, handing the champion his first-ever loss in singles competition in WWE. Last week, the Fighting Irishman also got the better of the champion by smashing him in the head with his own title. (Recap) But, Swagger will have an opportunity for revenge when he defends his title against Finlay at No Way Out. (Match preview)
Finlay def. ECW Champion Jack Swagger (Non-title) (WATCH | PHOTOS) Finlay’s tenacity paid off in a non-title encounter with the undefeated young ECW Champion Jack Swagger. As both Superstars waged war, the Belfast Brawler received a helping hand from his son, Hornswoggle, who smashed Swagger in the ankle with a shillelagh. The Fighting Irishman capitalized, hitting Swagger with a clothesline followed up by a Celtic Cross for the victory.
Paul Burchill def. Tommy Dreamer (PHOTOS) Despite vocal support from the WWE Universe, Tommy Dreamer could not stop Paul Burchill, who dropped Dreamer with a hard-hitting neckbreaker. To add insult to injury, World Tag Team Champions John Morrison and The Miz came out to the ring to verbally assault the ECW Original after his loss. After a series of insults saying the champion should hang it up, things got really ugly when The Miz told Dreamer, “The only people that want to see you less than this audience is your wife and kids.”
Dreamer immediately attacked the self-proclaimed “chick magnet,” knocking him to the canvas and delivering a series of punches. But, Morrison quickly got involved which lead to an ugly two-on-one attack, ending with The Miz dropping Dreamer with a Reality Check and stomping on his chest while he was down.
Boogeyman def. Jamie Noble (WATCH | PHOTOS) Making his first appearance on ECW after being drafted to Raw, Jamie Noble told ECW General Manager Theodore Long that he was there to “save the show,” now that Matt Hardy has moved to SmackDown.

Despite the loss, Noble was able to salvage the night by escaping the ring quickly without being forced to eat worms. So, The Boogeyman took advantage of the situation and did what was only natural – devour his slimy bag of worms himself.
William Regal & Layla def. Intercontinental Champion CM Punk & Mickie James Cryme Tyme def. Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase (disqualification) Kane & Mike Knox def. Rey Mysterio & Kofi Kingston Beth Phoenix def. Candice Michelle World Heavyweight Champion John Cena def. Chris Jericho
ST. LOUIS – Monday night's episode of Raw helped the Show Me State live up to her name ... and then some. Not only did Shane McMahon accept Randy Orton's challenge to a No Holds Barred Match at No Way Out, but his sister Stephanie vowed to bring Undertaker to Raw to battle the Legend Killer. Not only that, a disrespectful diatribe by Chris Jericho helped prompt the return of the legend Ric Flair, who will also be at next week's Raw. Wait for it ... wait for it ... Woooooo!
World Heavyweight Champion John Cena def. Chris Jericho; Ric Flair at Raw next week Not only did Chris Jericho’s disrespectful diatribe against various WWE Legends provoke World Heavyweight Champion John Cena to raise his game in the ring and defeat Jericho in the name of those various legends, in yet another stunning turn of events, Jericho’s words also apparently raised the ire of the one and only Ric Flair, who promises to return to Raw next Monday night. (PHOTOS | WATCH)
Stephanie McMahon announces Kane in Elimination Chamber Match at No Way Out, Undertaker vs. Randy Orton next Monday on Raw Visibly shaken from the earlier altercation with “Legacy,” Stephanie McMahon was seen talking with Kane. After he reassured her that his brother, Undertaker, would be at Raw next week, Stephanie announced that Kane was the sixth and final entrant in the World Heavyweight Title Elimination Chamber Match at No Way Out. She went on to reveal that Randy Orton must face Undertaker next Monday night on Raw.
JBL proposes a match at No Way Out between him and Shawn Michaels; Michaels accepts There are more than a few employees out there who would want nothing more than an opportunity to pummel their boss inside of a ring. For that reason alone, Shawn Michaels is a man to be envied. During an employee “performance appraisal,” the Longhorn Loudmouth taunted and berated HBK until, finally, he proposed that the two battle at No Way Out. If Michaels wins, the mouthy millionaire will release Michaels from his one-year contract and pay him in full. If HBK loses, however, JBL permanently secures the rights to Shawn Michaels’ name and all royalties associated therewith. To put an exclamation point on the proceedings, JBL slapped his employee across the face before leaving the ring. (PHOTOS | WATCH)
Beth Phoenix def. Candice; Rosa Mendes assists The Glamazon One thing about Rosa Mendes, the woman is consistent. Once again, The Glamazon’s “intern” interfered in one of Beth Phoenix’s matches. This week, with The Glamazon’s boyfriend Santino with her at ringside, Mendes distracted Candice to ensure Phoenix notched the victory. As a reward for a job well done, perhaps, Phoenix called Mendes into the ring, where the apprentice grabbed Candice and tossed her from the squared-circle. (PHOTOS | WATCH)
Randy Orton, Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase attack Shane and Stephanie McMahon You just knew Randy Orton wouldn’t let it go. As Shane McMahon spoke with his sister Stephanie in a hallway of the Scottrade Center, Orton and his “Legacy” cohorts blindsided him, sending both McMahons to the floor. While building security attempted to break up the melee, Orton geared up to punt Shane in the skull. Instead, however, he turned and narrowed Stephanie in the crosshairs. Just as Orton was about to let fly, Shane jumped in at the last second and absorbed the blow with his back. (WATCH) Check out Randy Orton's new Gas Mask T-shirt at WWEShop...
Kane & Mike Knox def. Rey Mysterio & Kofi Kingston; Kane pins Rey In what may prove to be a sneak peek at the World Heavyweight Title Elimination Chamber Match at No Way Out, several of that match’s six participants – Mike Knox, Rey Mysterio and Kofi Kingston – competed tonight in a tag team bout. As Rey teamed up with Kofi, the two aerial sensations fended off the monstrous challenge of Knox and his partner, Kane. Perhaps wanting to prove himself among these Elimination Chamber qualifiers, Kane seized control of the match, pinning Rey and proving that Goliath doesn’t always falter to David. (PHOTOS)
Chris Jericho badmouths WWE Legends, John Cena tells him to pipe down In the wake of last week’s aggressive overtures toward The Wrestler actor and Academy Award nominee Mickey Rourke on CNN’s Larry King Live, Chris Jericho lambasted a host of former WWE Legends, such as Ric Flair, referring to them as “has-beens.” Taking issue with Jericho’s rant, World Heavyweight Champion John Cena interrupted Jericho, reminding the bitter Superstar that without those men, none of the current Superstars would be here today. Cena then informed Jericho that when the two battle tonight, Cena will be beating Jericho for them, the WWE Legends. (PHOTOS | WATCH)
Cryme Tyme def. Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase by disqualification After their underhanded attack on Shane McMahon was foiled earlier in the evening, Cody Rhodes & Ted DiBiase were undoubtedly itching to prove their worth to “Legacy” ringleader Randy Orton. Rather than take on Shad & JTG fair and square, the “Priceless” pair instead opted to break the rules to get their point across. The two ended up laying out the Robbin’ Hoods but were disqualified for their efforts. (PHOTOS)
William Regal & Layla def. Intercontinental Champion CM Punk & Mickie James; Regal invokes rematch clause With weeks of rumblings and billowing animosity behind William Regal and CM Punk, the top finally blew off between this pair two weeks ago. It was then, during their third match in as many weeks, that Punk captured the Intercontinental Championship from Regal in a No Disqualification Match. This week, with the help of Layla, Regal was able to overcome Punk and his partner, Mickie James. Perhaps feeling a shift in momentum, Regal invoked his rematch clause and will face Punk the following Monday night for the Intercontinental Title. (PHOTOS)
Shane McMahon accepts Randy Orton’s challenge for a No Holds Barred Match at No Way Out After his adrenaline-fueled tirade last week, Shane McMahon opened tonight’s Raw by explaining his actions against Randy Orton. Having watched the Legend Killer punt his father’s skull, threaten to sue WWE and cancel WrestleMania, Shane felt compelled to take the action he did and was later confronted by Orton’s lawyers. Rather than sue, Orton proposed that Shane meet him in a No Holds Barred Match at No Way Out. Shane told the WWE Universe that he quickly agreed and is willing to sacrifice himself so that Orton will be in no condition to compete at WrestleMania.
That’s when Orton piped up. The Legend Killer sauntered toward the ring and told Shane that the only reason he managed to get the best of the three “Legacy” members was because they refused to fight back for fear of provoking the entire Raw roster who waited in the wings. As Orton spoke, DiBiase & Rhodes sprung from the audience to attack Shane, but the younger McMahon grabbed a kendo stick from under the ring and managed to fend off the 3-on-1 assault. With less than two weeks until No Way Out, simmering tensions among these four are set to boil.
There are a lot of rumors going around in regards to the TNA "Female Secret Investor" storyline. Karen Angle has been one the names thrown around, and if it's her, that would explain why Kurt Angle mentioned her name on Impact this week.
Victoria and Torrie Wilson are also rumored names.
Wife of former WWE manager Paul Bearer dies Posted by Randy Gordon on 02/02/2009 at 12:59 AM
Dianna Moody, wife of former WWE manager Paul Bearer, passed away in her sleep on Sunday.
The former WWE manager released a statement regarding her passing on the Gulf Coast Wrestling Message Board this evening. Here is his message:
Thank you all so much.
Many know that Dianne was a two time breast cancer survivor; however her lasting issues from the invasive chemo and radiation, and numerous other health problems took her from us.
I was blessed to have 30-years of marriage with her, and believe me, 30 years with me would make anybody a saint. The Pringle/Moody Family will never be the same as she was indeed the backbone for us all.
Mike Knox qualified for the World Heavyweight Championship Elimination Chamber Match at No Way Out at a house show event held in Cape Girardeau, Missouri earlier today. Knox outlasted Shad, JTG, Dolph Ziggler, Ted DiBiase and Cody Rhodes in a Six-Man Battle Royal Qualifying Match. Knox booted Shad in the face to secure the victory. Knox joins John Cena, Chris Jericho, Kofi Kingston and Rey Mysterio in the match.
