Tyson Tomko & Christian vs. Eugene & William Regal
The event kicks off LIVE from Puerto Rico. Tyson Tomko and Christian are making their way to the ring to get this night underway. William Regal & Eugene are next out to the ring. It looks like there is a nice crowd on hand tonight for the Pay Per view.
Eugene is in the ring and is terrorizing Christian and gives him a wedgie. Eugene has on a "Hulkster" shirt. Christian finally gets it going and attacks Eugene and then locks on a side headlock. Eugene is all over the ring, running around outside saying hello to the fans among other things. Eugene finally gets back in the ring where he knocks Tomko out of the ring and almost rolls up Christian. He then goes for the airplane spin. Tomko finally gets in while the ref is distracted and knocks Eugene to the ground and now Christian takes control of the match.
Tomko gets the tag and he is now back in the ring. Quickly Christian is back in the ring and he "hulk" up and blocks Christian's offensive attempts. He then makes the tag to William Regal, but Regal runs into Tomko who almost takes his head off with a big clothesline.
Tomko then lands an elbow and goes for a quick cover, but Regal is able to kick out. Tomko now isolates Regal in the corner with his front face lock and takes control of the match. Regal's nose is busted open. Ross comments that he would be surprised if it was not broken. Regal is still in trouble as Christian and Tomko continue to work on him. Tomko hits a back body flip. Regal continues to bleed out of his nose. Regal finally gets a knee up and gets some offense, but Christian gets in a cheap shot which stops all of that.
Regal almost gets a tag, but he is pulled back in the ring by Tomko. Regal again gets free and is trying to get to the right corner to make the tag. Regal just can't make the tag. He keeps going to the wrong corner. Regal is barely able to stand, but somehow makes a tag to Eugene.
Eugene is in the ring and scoring with several right hands as he ducks a clothesline. He then hits a dropkick. Eugene looks like he hurt his leg as he is barely able to get the rollup pin to retain the title for his team. That ending seemed to be botched, so Eugene may have really hurt his leg in that match.
Winner: William Regal & Eugene
They show Christy Hemme outside by the pool in her bikini earlier today talking about everyone being down in Puerto Rico.
King and Ross talk about the upcoming Women's Championship match, that looks like it will be up next.
Trish comes out wearing all black and looking very nice and she is followed by Lita who is wearing a pink top with camo pants.
Lita vs. Trish Stratus
Lita quickly sends Trish over the ropes and out to the floor. Lita takes a huge leap through the ropes and now she is holding her knee. No offense, but Lita's boobs are about to pop out of her top as you can see below. I can't tell if Lita really hurt her leg, but it looks like it may also be a legit injury as she can barely stand also.
Trish is now hammering away on Lita's other leg in the middle of the ring. Trish goes for a quick cover, but Lita is able to kick out. They continue to show the replay of the injury to Lita. It looks like it may be legit. Trish then quickly pins Lita now. It looks like the injury may be legit as Lita was not even able to stand up. People are now out in the ring looking at Lita's leg.
Not sure if that was a botched match either, but I would be willing to bet that Lita is hurt. That match was VERY quick as you can take a look at the replay and see where her leg buckles. They are trying to help her out of the ring as I type this now.
Back outside we see Maria taking off her clothes by the pool. We get a good look at her. Backstage we see Edge trying to convince Eric Bischoff to let him out of the Elimination Chamber tonight and let Christian in his place, but only under the circumstances that Edge gets a shot at the title tomorrow night on RAW. Bischoff says NO. Edge argues that there is no way HBK will let him win this match tonight. We then see HBK walk backstage, saying he is gonna call tonight's match down the middle.
Shelton Benjamin vs. Maven
Shelton Benjamin makes his way down to the ring. Maven makes his way down to the ring next for this IC Title matchup. It appears that Eugene's injury was legit. Ross just announced he has a dislocated kneecap. You can check out the injury via the live images below. As this match gets started, Shelton gets the fans into the match as they start to really get on Maven's case. Maven gets out of the ring and walks around the outside.
Maven goes and gets on the microphone. He says that he can't understand what they are saying? He tell's Shelton he will deal with him in a minute. Maven then makes fun of the crowd and say's he will talk real slow for them. He tells the crowd he can't concentrate with them screaming. This is nothing more than a time killer if you ask me. They are running short on time because of the previous two injuries that occured. Maven continues to mouth off saying he is gonna leave the ring etc...
Maven pretends that he is leaving and then quickly jumps back in the ring, but as he does, he is rolled up and pinned by Shelton. That was VERY quick.
Winner: Shelton Benjamin
Maven then gets on the microphone and say's that did not happen. He want's a REMATCH right now. He then taunts Benjamin saying they now have "two women's champions." Maven acts like he is disgusted because of what has happened. Shelton starts to walk back towards the ring. Shelton runs back to the ring and hits a T-Bone suplex and defeats Maven again!
Winner: Shelton Benjamin

Hassan then goes on a tirade about how Puerto Rico citizens are second class citizens compared to those of the United States and talks about how he has been treated so badly there since he has arrived.
Hassan vs. Jerry Lawler
Hassan hits the ring first, followed by Jerry Lawler. J.R. has left the announce booth, so we have no announcer for this match, which is weird. Lawler gets in a bit of offense as this match starts off slowly. The King is able to get in some offense. Hassan tries to take the turnbuckle off the top rope, but as he does, Lawler rolls him up. The ref was distracted so he was unable to make a count.

Lawler finally begins to fight out, but as he does Hassan counters and again goes for another cover attempt. Hassan then hooks on a reverse neck breaker as Lawler is laid out in the middle of the ring. Hassan then sends Lawler into the turnbuckle and the crowd begins to chant boring, as this match is very slow paced.
Hassan nails Lawler with a right hand, but Lawler fights it off and looks upset. He begins to "hulk" up and nails Hassan with a few bigshots. Lawler then hits a nice dropkick. Lawler goes to the second rope and hits Hassan, but Hassan is able to kick out.
Lawler almost gets a 3 count, but Hassan gets a leg on the rope. Lawler then goes on the outside, but gets distracted and when he gets back in the ring is decked and covered for three.
Backstage we see Orton and Batista. Orton questions whether Batista is in the match for the title tongiht or to help Triple H win the title. Batista says he should quit worrying about himself and worry about what he is going to do to him tonight.
Then Batista lets us know, if he has his shot at the belt tonight, he is going to take it.
