Vince McMahon's Bastard: Finale
No Way Out 2008
Ric Flair d. Mr. Kennedy (c) for the WWE Championship in a Career Threatening Match (DQ)
Kennedy takes a DQ loss here so we can keep Flair from losing his career but not giving him the title. Everything else on the card has been the same.
Triple H d. Mr. Kennedy (c), Randy Orton and John Cena in a Fatal Four-Way Match for the WWE Championship
We take the triple threat from OTL, make it a four-way match, but the Playboy lumberjill match for some extra time and the story ends here. Kennedy is revealed to have lied about the whole thing and Vince (who had made a point of referring to Shane and Kennedy as his two sons) makes a promo about how he has two sons: Shane... and Triple H. Hunter gets his revenge, but a long run with the title does mean that Kennedy's stock grows that even if he gets fired, TNA will gladly put the big belt on him.
That was just a small breather piece. Not as much big sweeping changes, but after the Pillman one, I wanted to take it a little easy. Besides, Kennedy got to be a main event champ in WWE, good stuff.
