(I really want to take my time with the remaining three matches so God only knows how long that’ll actually take. So for now, I’m uploading what I have right now for SummerSlam and I’ll update this post with the final three matches when they’re done. This is hopefully the last time I halfass this sim)
WWF SummerSlam 2001
The opening video package focuses on the main two feuds, Taz and his chance to win the WWF Title from Diamond Dallas Page, and Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Sting featuring footage of them from their years together in WCW and Austin’s Anti-WCW promos in ECW.
In the arena, pyro goes off from the stage and ring. The camera the raucous San Jose crowd and J.R. introduces himself and Paul Heyman. The camera goes to the stage as the Monday Night Raw theme plays. Tony Chimel announces that the match is a Battle Royal to crown the next challenger for Rhynos Intercontinental Title later in the show.
WWF Intercontinental Title Number One Contender Battle Royal
Leading the charge is Mike Awesome, followed by Bam Bam Bigelow, Steve Williams, Rob Van Dam, Steve Corino, Tajiri, Rikishi, Finlay, Matt Hardy, both Holly Cousins, former champion Big Show, Saturn, Chris Jericho, Jerry Lynn, Hurricane, The Impact Players, X-Pac, and Albert. As the twenty men enter the ring both J.R. and Heyman predict victory for Steve Corino given his recent run of success.
With all twenty men in the ring, the refs outside calls for the bell. Williams and Awesome rush out of their corner and meet in the middle of the ring, each delivering a Clothesline. Neither man goes down but they do stagger. The Holly’s are quick to pounce on Williams while Awesome is dragged into a fight with The Impact Players.
In the chaos, no one notices Corino sneak under the bottom rope. The other nineteen brawl and soon Hurricane is thrown from the ring by Bam Bam. Wasting no time Bam Bam pulls Crash away from Steve Williams and begins to brawl with him.
Shortly there after, Bigelow hoists Crash into a Gorilla Press and tosses him out onto the Hurricane. The camera briefly focuses in on Corino before he bats it away. Jericho attempts to throw Lynn out but Lynn fights off Jericho and kicks him in the stomach. He tries for the Cradle Piledriver but Jericho counters, Back Body Dropping him out of the ring. Just as quickly Jericho is pushed over by Saturn. He curses as Lynn smirks and slaps him upside the head. The refs intervene before th situation escalates.
The remaining fifteen continue to brawl and attempt to push each other the top. A few minutes go by before Hardcore Holly and X-Pac are both tossed out in quick succession by Mike Awesome. The camera moves to the other side of the ring where Justin Credible has been knocked through the ropes and is pulling a kendo stick out from under the ring.
He sneaks back into the ring and way lays Mike Awesome in the back but Awesome doesn’t budge. Credible rears back and swings for his mid-section, again Awesome barely reacts. Credible rears back again but Awesome grabs him by the throat. In the corner Lance Storm silently debates on answering his partners pleas for help or eliminating Tajiri.
Storm ultimate abandons Tajiri and runs over to help his tag team partner. He’s grabbed by the throat by Awesome. Awesome tries to Choke Slam them but they block it and low blow Awesome. Awesome grabs his balls and falls to his knees. The Impact Players recover for a bit before pulling Awesome back to his feet. They run him across the ring and toss him over the rope.
In the chaos, Saturn was also eliminated by Matt Hardy. Finlay begins to coral others and points to the Big Show and Rikishi. The big men share a glance as they look at the other eight ready to gang up on them. They both smirk and call the others over to try their best.
Several of them are easily tossed away by the big men and Show eliminates Matt Hardy, while Rikishi takes care of Finlay and Lance Storm. Shortly after Credible picks up the kendo stick and begins to lay into everyone whether they’re standing or not. He looks around and grabs the closest person to his size, RVD, and pulls him up. He throws him towards the ropes but RVD counters and tosses Justin over. Credible lands on his feet on the apron but he’s quickly pulled of by Corino.
Corino begins to gloat and catches Big Shows eye. Show calmly walks over, reaches over the rope, and pulls Corino onto the apron by his hair. He starts to pull Corino in but Corino goes to eyes. Show releases his grip and rubs his eyes as Corino tumbled to the mat and rolls back out of the ring.
A blinded Show is then dumped over the top by Steve Williams and Bam Bam. An angered Show turns his gaze toward Corino. Corinos smirk fades as he begins to back away from the giant.
Corino: Paul man, be smart about this. I-I-I have cash, just please back off...
Show stops for a moment before charging at Corino. Corino runs and slides into the ring and right into a Thrust Kick from Rikishi. Corino flops to the mat spread eagle. Rikishi smirks and grabs him by the hair, he drags him over and dumps his limp body over the top rope.
The brawling begins anew. Albert attempts to eliminate Heymans second pick, RVD to no avail. Van Dam fights him off and Williams takes care of the rest, dumping over the top. RVD and Tajiri share a look and nod at each other. They both stand behind Doc and Dropkick him over the top.
Each of the final four takes a corner and stares down each other. Bam Bam makes the first move followed by Rikish as the two big men meet in the middle of the ring with a Shoulder Block. They stare down for a bit before trading Uppercuts. Bam Bam retaliates with a kick to the mid-section only to get chopped in the throat by Rikishi. Bam Bam backs off, holding his throat and coughing. Rikishi grabs him by the shirt and tries to drag him to the ropes.
Bam fights and grabs Rikishi by the waist of his thong. Both end up staggering towards the ropes. They continue to punch at one another as the lean against the ropes, their massive frames dipping the top rope. Tajiri and RVD share another look and quickly head over to finish the job and dump Bam Bam and Rikishi out of the ring.
Tajiri and RVD both quickly retreat away form the ropes as the crowd cheer for the final two. They circle each other, both clearly tired. RVD throws the first shot, a high roundhouse kick but Tajiri pulls away.
RVD quickly gets his footing back and faces the Japanese Buzzsaw. Tajiri puts his hands in the air and approaches the middle of the ring. He slowly lowers one hand, holding it to Van Dam. RVD approaches and Tajiri kicks him in the jaw. The crowd boo as RVD staggers and falls to one knee.
Tajiri points and laughs at Van Dam before kicking him again. He backs up as RVD, now on both knees, sways back and forth. Tajiri rushes forward and kicks RVD with both feet in the face. The crowd ooh as RVD collapses to the mat.
Heyman: I can practically read Tajiri mind, he thinks he has this in the bag and it’s hard to disagree.
Tajiri takes a moment before getting back to his feet. He grabs Van Dam by the hair and slowly pulls him. He drags a near-limp RVD towards the ropes but RVD stops him cold with a low blow.
Tajiri drops his grip and falls to his knees. They stare at each other as Tajiri collapses to the mat. RVD flips him off before collapsing himself. The crowd egg both men for a minute or before they both slowly rise to their feet.
Tajiri hits RVD with a forearm strike, and RVD quickly returns the favor. Tajiri hits him with another one that cause RVD to tense up. RVD shakes it off and hits Tajiri with five quick strikes. Tajiri backs off and squats. He waits for Vand Dam to drop his guard before attempting a surprise Clothesline. RVD ducks it and tries for a Side Kick but Tajiri catches his foot. He throws it away and ducks RVD Spinning Wheel Kick.
RVD quickly gets up and charges towards Tajiri only to be sprayed with the green mist. RVD flails and rubs his eyes. He ends stumbling and tie;ping over his own feet. He falls through the ropes onto the apron. A tired Tajiri knees and smirks.
He joins Van Dam on the apron and RVD begins to swing his hands wildly toward the green blur in front of him. Tajiri stands just far enough back and mocks Van Dam. One of the wild shots connects with Tajiri jaw and knocks off the apron but Tajiri grabs the rope and hangs on
With Tajiri staggered RVD slowly moves his foot around and gently and slowly goes through the ropes again. He kneels in the mat, rubbing at his eyes. Tajiri joins back in the ring and slumps into the corner. He watches as RVD stands and again begins to swing wildly.
Tajiri smirks and pulls himself up. He slowly approaches RVD. RVD smirks as he hears Tajiri and throws his foot back into Tajiri jaw. The crowd cheer as Tajiri falls to the mat. RVD falls to one knee, panting. He looks over at the turnbuckle and stands up. He points to his shoulders as the crowd chant his initials.
He grabs Tajiri by the foot and pulls him a little closer. Van dam slowly exits the ring and almost loses his balance. He mange’s to stay upright and struggles to the top rope. The crowd are buzzing as he points to his shoulders again. From the mat Tajiri sprays another mist into the air to block Van Dams line of sight. Tajiri stands up and rushes through the fog to push RVD off the top rope. Van Dam lands rib first against the rope and then falls to the floor. The ref calls for the bell and the crowd boo while Heyman applauds Tajiris genius.
As Tajiri continues to celebrate, J.R. throws it to a video package of KroniKs reign over the tag team division since debuting. It leads straight into the entrance of the WWF Tag Team Champions as the crowd boos.
