The Ring Announcer: "The Coach" Jonathan Coachman
Jon Heidenreich & Mike Bucci vs. La Resistance:
Not a great match to start off with, but that is nothing new. I have not heard of
Mike Bucci and I have never seen Jon Heidenreich before (though I have heard of
him). La Resistance is the team the WWE created to take advantage of the fact that
France did not get involved in the war. One is actually from Canada and one is from
the USA, but they carry the French flag with them, which is enough in wrestling to
get you booed. To make the crowd hate them even more, they interrupted the Star
Spangled Banner at the start of the show. La Resistance won the match when Jon
Heidenreich messed up a suplex attempt and one of La Resistance fell on top off him
for the pin.
Coach then invited Rob Van Dam to the ring for an interview. Coach told RVD to
forfeit his Intercontinental Title match against Randy Orton later on the card. RVD
refused and knocked down the Coach. RVD then tried to deliver his Five Star Frog
Splash to Coach, but Orton ran to ringside and delivered the RKO to Rob Van Dam
which left RVD hurt in the middle of the ring. On a side note, only two matches for
this show were advertised: RVD vs. Randy Orton and Kane vs. Chris Jericho...As you
will see later on, only RVD vs. Orton actually happened (again...nothing new.)
The Hurricane vs. Matt Hardy:
I am a pretty big fan of Matt Hardy, so it was good that he was on the card. While
Matt Hardy was walking around outside the ring, I held the notebook I had brought
and asked him to sign it. He looked up at me...half smiled...and walked on by
(typical bad guy move.) Hurricane won the match, which is somewhat of a surprise,
with his finishing move called "The Eye Of The Hurricane." Tonight on Raw, WWE
announcers made a big deal about the fact that Matt Hardy has not won a match since
jumping from Smackdown to Raw, which means they are setting up something for him,
but it is too early to tell what.
Lita and Victoria vs. Molly Holly and Jazz with Teddy Long:
Nothing overly exciting in this match. Lita and Victoria won when Victoria pinned
Molly Holly. During this match, Teddy Long came over and started talking to us, so I
decided to ask him to sign my book. He told me he couldn't now, but would later. At
that point, I figured out that wrestlers, managers and everyone else must not be
allowed to sign autographs while the actual card is taking place. I put my notebook
away and resumed taking pictures for the rest of the card.
Mark Henry vs. Chris Benoit:
Chris Benoit also recently made the jump from Smackdown to Raw. This match was ok
and I have to say that Mark Henry is one big guy. Although Mark Henry controlled the
match most of the way,including a huge backbreaker, Chris Benoit captured Mark Henry
in the cross-face and forced him to submit.
Val Venis & Lance Storm vs. Garrison Cade & Mark Jindrak:
Although the WWE makes it difficult because they don't do anything with him, I am
also a Lance Storm fan. Garrison Cade & Mark Jindrak are relatively new, though they
have had some time on Raw. Mark Jindrak also wrestled for WCW shortly before Vince
McMahon bought it. Garrison Cade & Mark Jindrak won this match when one of them
rolled up Lance Storm from behind for the pin.
At this point, there was a brief intermission. During this time a referee came out
to work on the ring. Several people came over and asked for his autograph. Since he
was right beside me and so I wouldn't feel like I brought my note book for nothing,
I got his autograph as well.
When the card started again, the Coach called for Christian to come out for an
interview. Christian got on the microphone and said that Chris Jericho should leave
Trish Stratus alone and focus on their tag team. This brought out Chris Jericho and
the two had a verbal confrontation. Coach then got in between them and said that he
had the authority to make the match if both men want it. Christian proceeded to hit
Chris Jericho and that started the match.
Christian vs. Chris Jericho:
This was a very good match. The end came when Christian went to get a chair and
returned to the ring. He was about to hit Chris Jericho with it, when Trish ran out
from the back and distracted Christian long enough for Jericho to apply his
finishing move, "The Walls of Jericho" forcing Christian to submit.
World Tag Team Championship:Dudley Boyz vs. Ric Flair & Batista:
I am big Ric Flair fan, so this was the highlight of the afternoon for me. I got
some good pictures of Ric Flair as he was walking around the ring right in front of
us. At one point, Ric Flair came in the ring illegally and the referee forced him to
leave. I yelled to the referee, "Ric Flair is a 16 time World Champion...He can do
whatever he wants." Bubba Dudley looked down at me and said, "Yeah, I'm a 17 time
World Champion, you $%@*?" Of course, he is referring to his WWE, WCW, and ECW World
Tag Team titles. Bubba Dudley is nowhere near the same league as Ric Flair and
should not try to compare himself to him. Ric Flair and Batista won this match when
Ric Flair hit Bubba Dudley with a pair of brass knuckles and Batista hit an awesome
spinebuster on D-Von Dudley.
Booker T vs. Kane:
Kane controlled this match up until Spike Dudley ran out and Kane started chasing him
around the ring. Booker T hit a low blow on Kane and rolled up Kane for the win.
Intercontinental Championship: RVD vs. Randy Orton:
This was also a great match. Rob Van Dam was getting ready to hit his "Rolling
Thunder" move when the Coach jumped on the ring apron to distract him. Randy Orton
tried to hit his finisher, the RKO, but RVD countered and hit Orton with a kick. Rob
Van Dam then climbed the top rope to hit the Five Star Frog Splash. The Coach
attempted to pull Orton out of the ring, but RVD dove off the top rope and hit a leg
drop on the Coach. While RVD was throwing Coach out of the ring, Randy Orton
recovered and got up behind RVD. As soon as RVD turned around, Randy Orton hit the
RKO and pinned RVD to hold onto the Intercontinental Championship. After the match
is over, the Coach decided to confront RVD and laugh at him for loosing the match.
To no ones surprise, RVD bodyslamed the Coach. RVD then climbed the ropes and
finally hit the Five Star Frog Splash on someone to close out the show.
All in all, it was a good show that was made great because Paul and I were in the
front row. Once the show was over, the WWE senior referee, Earl Hebner, came back
and signed my book---my autograph total for the afternoon: 3 referees 8-)---and took
a picture with me (which was nice of him, since he didn't have to do that.) The
Coach and Teddy Long both said they would come back, but neither did. As Earl Hebner
was returning to the locker-room, a group in one of the high sections all chanted
together "HEY EARL...YOU SCREWED BRET!! (there is a back story you must be familiar
with here to understand what they meant.) Earl proceeded to give them a double
middle finger and walk away. It was a funny way to end the show.
