Billy Kidman vs Chuck Polumbo
Fairly good match for the size mismatch. Kidman tried to outwrestle Poloumbo
but he just picked up Kidman and threw him against the turnbuckle and Kidman
spilled to the outside. Kidman wins with a rollup.
Ultimo Dragon vs Shannon Moore
Very solid match. Crowd was split in half and cheered for both wrestlers.
Lots of great highspots and reversals.Ultimo hit some stiff kicks on Moore
and won with his standing sliced bread #2 manuver.
Tajiri, Akio and Sakado vs Orlando Jordan, The Cat and his little buddy with
Despite Tajiri Akio and Sakada's efforts the match was ruined by Orlando's
inexperiece and the Cat's inability to wrestle. Akio and Sakado hit a great
double team move on Orlando where Akio was on the apron and Sakado was in
the ring and hit a double ensiguri. Orlanda pins Tajiri with a powerslam.
Rhyno and Matt Morgan vs World's Greatest Tag Team
To sum up the match, Matt Morgan sucks.At the start WGTT make fun of Marr
Morgan and get the crowd to clap and stomp to the beat of We Will Rock You
while Charlie Hass sang a song about kciking Morgan's ass all over the
place. Matt Morgan spent most of the match in the ring putting Hass in rest
holds while the crowd chanted boring. Steve Austin telling fans to chant
boring at great technical wrestling is one thing, but watching Matt Morgan
put someone in a reverse chinlock for 5 minutes is boring.Rhyno for some
reason tires to start a USA chant. Finally Hass hot tags Shelton in and he
beats down Rhyno and Morgan and superkicks Morgan out of the ring to the
corwd's delight. WGTT set up Rhyno for their leaprfrog back breaker manuver
on the ropes but Morgan breaks it up. Shelton superkikcs Morgan out of the
ring again and turns around and Rhyno is coming at him for the gore but
Shelton moves and Hass hits him with an inverted atomic drop and sets Rhyno
up for Superkick/Pinning Combination for the 1 2 3. After trying to play
heels Matt Morgan comes in and helps Rhyno up and checks to see if hes ok
then raises Rhyno's arm hoping for a good crowd response. They get booed put
of the ring.
Kurt Angle vs Hardcore Holly
What the? For the last 3 weeks evertime they've been hyping Angle vs Eddie
vs Lesnar for the main event but I guess thats why it says card subject to
change. Angle is so over and everyone is booing Holly right off the
bat.Every move Angle hits gets the crowd going more and whenever Holly
starts getting an advantage the arena was filled with boos. Angle hits the
Angle Slam for the win.
Crusierweight Championship Match
Rey Mysterio vs Jamie Noble vs Chavo Guerrero
Great Match, Rey's WWE style is nowhere as great as his WCW but he puts just
as much effort in every house show as he does on TV and it was amazing to
see live. Lots of reversals and chain wrestling. Everyone tries their
finishers but they get reversed and in the end both Jamie Noble and Chavo
are in position for the 619. Rey goes for a double 619 but Chavo moves and
Jamie takes it. Rey knocks Chavo to the outside Rey goes to the apron and
hits him with the springboard move where he lands on their shoulders and
chest and pins Noble to retain his title.
Tag Team Title Match
Rikishi and Scotty Too Hotty vs The Bashams
Air Canada lost Rikishi's gear and tag title so he comes out in his street
clothes with no title. I went to go get food during this match. Rikishi gets
the win with a devastating samoan drop and just crushes one of the Bashams.
Shaniqua comes in to attack Rikishi but he slams her down and Scotty hits
U.S. Championsip Match
Big Show vs Bradshaw.
Wow. Big Show is HUGE! They tie up, Big Show throws Bradshaw down and does
the Hogan flex. Bradshaw gets his spinach by drinking a couple beers from
people in the crowd then comes in and ties up with Big Show and throws him
halfway across the ring and does the Hulk Flex. Big Show picks up the win
with a huge Chokeslam. Big Show goes back to the lockeroom and Bradhsaw is
still donw and out. A ref gets a beer from the corwd and brings it in the
ring. Bradshaw get the smell of it and wakes up and downs a beer while the
crowd chanted "Chug!"
World Heavyweight Championship Match.
Crowd is on their feet cheering for Lesnar. Crowd stays on their feet and
cheers just as loud for Eddie. Lesnar stalls for a long time building up
heat for the match. Sadly Eddie's heat is killed as the crowd sadly chants
for Goldberg while Lesnar is yelling at the crowd Eddie just stands there
having no part of it. The match gets started and is built up very slowly and
picks up as it goes. At about 20 minutes in they start going for finshers.
Eddie hits the triple vertical suplexes then goes for the Frog Splash but
misses. Lesnar picks up Eddie for the F-5 but it is reversed into a ddt.
Eddie hits the frog splash but Lesnar kicks out at 2 3/4. Lesnar gets up and
goes for the clothesline but Eddie ducks and the ref takes it. Lesnar goes
for his title and hits Eddie in the head for the 1 2 3. The crowd was a mix
of boos and cheers. Lesnar leaves and Eddie is left in the ring. The corwd
starts chanting Eddie and appluading his efforts and he poses for pictures
then leaves. Great match, about 25 minutes long.
