Hello my manual peeps. Welcome to another installment of my WWE Manual.
Last week, we saw the introduction of our new GM Shane Douglas AKA the Franchise. He stirred things up by throwing Swagger into the Giant's den. Big Show destroyed Swagger and apparently made a secret deal with The Franchise.
Charlie Haas returned to one-up the US Champion and did so as he made Kofi Kingston tap to the Haas of Pain.
And we saw a new No. 1 contender emerge...Jack Swagger. What will happen this week? Stay tuned to the Monday Night Manual!
(Fireworks go off as Cole and King introduce us)
King: Hello everyone. Welcome to Monday Night Raw!!! Tonight we have two huge matches in store. Kofi Kingston puts his title on the line against Charlie Haas.
Cole: That's right, also tonight, John Cena and D-X pair up to take on Legacy and Jack Swagger.
King: And coming up, Mr. McMahon makes a special announcement! But right now, we head back to the Franchise's office.
Franchise: (on the phone) Yeah, haha. Yeah man. I can't wait to get the both of you up here. Yeah, this place needs up and comers like yourselves. When? Oh, soon enough, soon enough. (Someone walks in) Oh, I gotta go. Yeah, I'll talk to you next week.
Miz: Shane, we need to talk.
Franchise: That's Mr. Douglas to you.
Miz: Whatever, old man. Anyways, Why does Haas get to be No. 1 contender? I just defeated Evan Bourne last week. One of us should've been the contender, and since I destroyed him, I should be first in line!
Franchise: Well, since you've had your shots over and over again, and since.. let's face it, I just don't like you, I'm not going to grant your wish. But I am a fair man. How about next week you go one-on-one with Evan Bourne again... in a ladder match. This will be a match for the #2 contendership.
Miz: A ladder match? Are you kidding me?
Franchise: Well, if you don't like it, you can take it up with my assistant GM.
Big Show: Is there a problem, little man?
Miz: Uh...no, man...I'm fine. A ladder match? Great idea!
Franchise: I thought so.
King: Wow, looks like Miz is in trouble next week Cole, but right now, here comes the boss!
Cole: I need this job King, it's all I have!
Mr McMahon comes out accompanied by The Hart Dynasty and Mike Knox. The crowd boos the Chairman.
McMahon: Ah, the Corporation is back! What can I say, I'm honored. But tonight isn't about that. Tonight, I'm here to announce the KOTR tournament! At Bragging Rights, there will be a Raw v Smackdown v ECW KOTR match final to determine the KOTR. Tonight, we will have three qualifying matches.
Evan Bourne v Chris Masters
Chavo Guerrerro v Santino Marella
The winner of those two will go on to face eachother. Good luck gentlemen. Evan Bourne v Masters begins right now!
Evan Bourne vs Chris Masters KOTR Qualifier:
Chris Masters comes out with a smile on his face. He's screaming "King Masters" as the crowd boos him. Evan Bourne comes out next. He gets into the ring and starts off with a few kicks to Master's legs. Masters catches the fourth kick and pulls him in for a clothesline! Master's picks up Bourne and puts him in an abdominal stretch!

Evan is strugglin as Miz is laughing. Evan fights...but it's no use. He passes out. Master's qualifies!
King: Wow, with a little distraction from the Miz, Masters takes out Evan and qualifies!
Beth Phoenix calls out Mickie James:
Beth walks down to the ring with a big smile on her face. She gets into the ring.
Beth: Oh Mickie. Poor little Mickie. I know me becoming the No. 1 contender for the title wasn't in your plans, as we can see on the video (A replay shows Mickie giving a long three-count).
It's fine. I would've done the same thing... wait...Actually, I would've just kicked your ass and let her pin you. But you don't have the guts to make a smart move like that. And that's going to cost...
Mickie James comes out to the ring.
Mickie: Beth... Beth, Beth, Beth. I don't know why your so arrogant. You've been a punching bag for the whole division until last week. You got lucky against Gail. But that's okay. Because once I beat you, she's getting her shot.
Beth: Oh, is she? And when I beat you, neither of you are going to touch my title. Because as we all know, life isn't fair. And it won't be for...
Mickie hits her with a Mick kick! She's laid out! Beth is out cold.
Mickie: You're right, Beth. Life's a bitch, Beth, and so are you.
Santino vs Chavo KOTR qualifier:
"Ooh Chavo!!!" Chavo's music hits... but no one comes out... Three minutes go by, and then Chavo flies out to the stage. Santino follows with a lead pipe and a mic.
Santino: No more-a foolin ya-round!
Chavo gets on his knees and begs for forgiveness for what he did to Hornswoggle.
King: What did he do since two weeks ago?
Santino motions toward the titantron. A video comes up of Chavo bludgeoning the little guy with a club. They are by a set of stairs. He then throws Swoggle into a box. He throws tacks into the case. He starts kicking the case over and over again. Then he latches it shut and throws the box over the stairs!
King: GOOD LORD!!!

Chavo gets up... only to be knocked down! Santino hits a devastating rear lariat! Santino goes up top and signals for a "tadpole splash". He jumps, but Chavo puts his boot up!

Cole: Good God! Somebody help Santino! Someone? Anybody?
King: This is horrible!
Chavno pics up the mic.
Chavo: (Gasping for air) Finally, the little bastard and that stupid Italian are done with. What will I do next?
Chavo walks away for a second. He stops, and looks back over the edge. He points up like he's giving Eddie tribute, and then does a Frog Splash!
King: Cut to commercial!! Cut to the Damn Commercial!!!!
Cole: Um... welcome back ladies and gentlemen...
King: Cole, what just happened was disgusting. Chavo Guerrero not only threw Hornswaggle over stairs, but he threw Santino over the edge, and did a Frog Splash into the electrical circuits beside the stage.
Cole: King... It was despicable.
King: Well, since Chavo did... that... we have to have the final qualifier next week. But as they all say, we have to get on with the show... next up is the... Good God. Next up is the US Championship.
